Panel Approves
Student Dabbling
"Should Canadian Students Dabble in International Affairs?"
This was the topic of a panel discussion sponsored by
NFCUS yesterday at noon.
Speakers were Jacques Gerin,
National President of NFCUS;
Russ Brink, Vice President of
International Affairs of NFCUS;
and Dr. Conway of the Department of International Studies.
The panel was sponsored by
NFCUS and chaired by Theo
Carroll.
Brink was the only speaker
who felt Canadian students
should keep out of international
affairs.
He wanted to know why We
should provide "charity" to
other countries when we ourselves are seriously short of
adequate facilities.
He also pointed out that students- often make statements
against the policies of the Department of External Affairs.
Jacques Gerin took the opposite side of the question.
He pointed out that we are
part of a world wide community
and that other countries look to
us for guidance.
"Canada is being pushed by
other (student) unions to take a
place of leadership.
He listed several examples
where Canadians had been given
positions of leadership in world
student affairs.
In reply to Russel Brink's suggestion that we should not give
charitable support to other
countries he said, "If we are
going to wait until Canada becomes a paradise, we will wait a
long time."
Dr. Conway felt that Canadian
students should participate in
world affairs.
"We are part of the world,
like it or not," he stated.
He said Russell Brink was tak
ing the attitude that you should
not go against the government
right or wrong.
He pointed out that while we
have never had it so good there
are others in the world who
have never had it so bad.
Ais our standards of living
go up, those of other countries
are sinking.
As people with lower standards of living realize they could
raise their standards with our
technology there are likely to be
revolutions like that in China.
Dr. Conway said the question
is not, "Should we dabble in international affairs," but, "How
should we do it."
In answer to a question from
the floor asking if NFCUS was
set up to deal with international
affairs, Jacques Gerin answered
yes, but it does not limit the
national program.
SCREENS
NOW IN
BROCK
Don't look now but you Brock
types are being screened.
A removable screen has been
placed along the east side of
the main Brock lounge to screen
off  the  cafeteria.
Brock dietician Miss Donna
Smith said the purpose of the
screen is to "omit the necessity
of closing the cafeteria doors
because of small functions in the
lounge demanding quiet."
AMS president Pete Meekison said the screen was part
of the plan when the Brock
cafeteria  was renovated.
It is also to stop students from
cutting directly across the
lounge, he said. : ■■
One AMS council member
said the screen fails to fulfill its
purpose as the doors between
the lounge and the cafeteria
will still have to be closed when
there is a function in the
lounge.
The major complaint against
the screen is the amount of
room it takes up.
Even pushed against the wall
the screen cuts off about 160
square feet of floor space,
enough for 20 dancing couples.
AMS co-ordinator Russ Brink
said "When reasonable I think
the screen should be removed
by Food Services. Food Services (should pay for the removal."
Cost estimate for removal of
the screen ranges from $18 to
$40.
Food Services director Ruth
Blair said "We will pay for the
removal of the screen if it is
necessary."
The director said that the
Brock Lounge is "a great big
waste space in any case.
Building and Grounds spokesman George Rogers stated "I
don't think it (the screen) needs
to be moved."

might otherwise have been utilized by some of the rest of US

Two UBC Students Show
Extra Sensory Perception
Two UBC students don't know
it but they apparently have
Extra  Sensory  Preception.
A Parapsychology Club
spokesman said two students
showed an unusually high negative response in the recent ESP
experiment.
Students were asked to guess
at 120 cards which were sealed
in   the  University bank  vault.
On the bases of chance students were expected to guess 20
correctly. Scores were then
measured in plus or minus from
50.
PC members said the two high
negative scores were minus ten
and minus eleven.
"The probability of getting
this many wrong is about one
in a hundred," the club reported.
About 70 students returned
forms the spokesman said.
"Too many ballots were spoiled because students failed to
follow instructions," the club
member  said.
The card most often guessed
was K.
The second and third most
often correctly identified cards
(continued on page 3)
Unrealized by most students, there were two bands at the
Homecoming dances.
One was Jerry Gray's band.
The other was a stand-by band which did not play a note.
The Homecoming Committee was forced to hire this extra
band.
If they refused, the local Musicians Union would not have
issued a work permit to allow Jerry Gray's orchestra to enter
Canada.
"What it practically amounts
to," said Bart Reemeyer, Homecoming Committee P.R.O., "is
that the Musicians Union blackmailed the Homecoming Committee into payiqg over $500 to hire
musicians that the Committee
did not want, did not need, and
did not use."
The stand-by band was made
up of members of the Vancouver
local of the Musicians Union,
who were on hand in case Jerry
Gray could not play. This was
the reason put forth by the Executive Secretary pf the Union
local. ]
COMMITTEE DIASPPOINTED
Student Councillor John Goodwin, chairman of the Homecoming Committee, said, "We are
very disappointed with the en;
tire arrangement regarding the
stand-by band."
The Committee reported that
some members of the stand-by
bands were not present during
the entire dance.
"If we have to pay for a standby band, then the least the band
can do is to attend the entire
dance," said Goodwin.
In the agreement between the
Alma Mater Society and the Musicians Union, regarding the employment of musicians by the
A.M.S.; and its subsidiary organizations, there is no mention of
stand-by bands. By this agreement, the A.M.S. and its subsidiaries may hire non-union bands,
provided that all non-union musicians are members of the Alma
Mater Society.
The Homecoming Committee
felt that they were in no position
to do anything about these circumstances; they did not want to
risk Jerry Gray being refused a
work permit to play in Canada.
The Musicians Union intends
to continue this practice whenever other than local musicians
are hired. This means that the
A.M.S. will not be able to have
outside musicians on campus
without having to spend money
to hire local musicians as stand-
bys.
CONCERN OF STUDENTS
Bart Reemeyer had the final
word.
"This is something with which
every student should concern
himself," he said.
"We all belong to the A.M.S.,
and if an A.M.S. Committee such
as Homecoming, makes a profit,
the profit goes to the A.M.S. Similarly, any losses sustained by
such a committee are covered by
the A.M.S.
"It might be different if we
had derived some benefit from
these musicians.   We didn't."
"The musicians came and left
when they pleased. They were
being paid while they danced,
enjoyed themselves, and took up

"West Indies In Transition''
Theme At W.U.S.C. Seminar
en In Rome...
■      MUSTANG KICK NUMBS  'BIRDS  reads the  headline
liver the Vancouver Sun's report of the football game Saturday
. between Western Ontario and U.B.C.
It is not happy news, but it is one thing certainly, it is
Veil-read news. . "
Not long ago the downtown papers published pages of
reports of professional football, a coverage reflecting John Doe's
interest,
"Why does not the, university take advantage of this interest
and build a good football team with athletic scholarships?
The university is supported, whether some academics like

E. B.      -
Imbecility
■v Its about time the students on this campus became more
responsible in their conduct at University functions and less
hivenile in their treatment of University property.
•Two recent incidents should give ample illustration:
student conduet at the Homecoming football game and the
destruction of certain parts of the poultry houses.
With regards to the first question, it should be obvious
to ft. few who attended the football game and witnessed the
immature conduct of a number of the spectators, that mature
students were at a premium.
They were drinking to excess and consequently were
obnoxious; many filled the air with a variety of missiles; and
a.lew "kids" raced around the track in their go-carts. These
were   not University   students,   however,   so   we   can   heave
asigh.
Seriously, how can students expect to have the administration make concessions if they act in this fashion? To be
more specific, how can they expect the board of governors
to allow liquor on campus if this is what will happen?
' The second point brings up the question' of a long and
inglorious tradition of student pranks. Two weeks ago the hen
houses on the experimental farm were broken into, chickens
were released,, and partitions were broken down allowing
vjfcljpus types (not the sexes) to mix. This prank cost the
IJniyersity a great deal of money for the time spent in clearing up the mess. It did no one any good, and ,it is even hard
tetjat^om how anyone could possibly get a kick out of a prank
of this nature. It ranks with the wrecking of the Ubyssey
offices in stupidity.
It's time the children on this campus grew up; they should
have ..when they graduated from "high" school.
Odious Comparisons
The Editor,

Dear Sir:
Mr. Hunter's odius compari-
; sons between "the very much
alive, spanking Britisher" and
the "near-dead, insipid Canadian" give cause for reflection, both upon the statements
; as such, and also the motives
" behind them.

"The West Indies in Transi-
tion" was the theme of the annual World University Service
of Canada's study seminar held
June 30-August 7. Rod Dobell,
Norman Gish, John Munro and
Prof. Charles Bourne were
chosen to attend from U.B.C.
These delegates will present
their Seminar Report in Buchanan 106, Thursday noon.	
The following is a report by
Norman Gish of his general impressions   resulting   from   the
By NORMAN GISH
W.U.S.C. Chairman
The Seminar again this year
was truly a success and I begin this report by urging all
who may be interested in international affairs or in the culture, history and peoples of
other countries, to apply in the
years ahead.
The Canadian delegation met
a t University College i n
Toronto for a five day preparatory session before leaving for
Jamaica. A formal session of
three weeks was held at the
University College of the West
Indies in Kingston, Jamaica;
then the group divided into
three parts, one going to
British Honduras and Antigua,,
another to Barbados and St.
Lucia and the third to St. Kitts
and Grenada J
Following this, all groups
met once more in Port-of-Spain,
Trinidad, for a final evaluation session. The Seminar ended on Aug. 7 and the students
then had free time at their own
expense before returning to
Canada.
The following general observations are mjade with some
hesitation as I do not profess
to be an expert on West Indian
affairs after only six weeks in
the area.
Political life in the West Indies is far more active and
serious than in Canada. One
could sense the dilemma faced
by political leaders in respect
to mass appeal; though they
didn't like it they had no choice
unde'r present circumstances
but to cultivate it to stay in
power.
In   virtually   all  the islands
the trade unions and the political parties are inseparable.
It was impossible to discern
(whether the political party
was an arm of the trade union
or vice-versa.
This wedlock has obvious
complications particularly during strikes and government
dealings with industry and
capital attraction. Almost all of
the political leaders are executive members of a trade union.
Internally, many, of the parties in power were suffering
from lack of cohesion and party
discipline. The parties have
been acting as the opposition
for so long during this transition to political independence
that they still criticize the
government when now they are
in fact the government. This is
really a matter of growing
pains and it, should adjust itself in time.
Economic progress has certainly taken place in most of
the islands. Some have instituted bold and imaginative
schemes to attract capital. It
was pleasing to see Canadian
.investment playing an important role in this regard.
The paramount problem of
too many people and too few
resources continually arose in
discussions. Birth control carried with it all the misgivings,
mistrust and prejudice that it
does anywhere.
Slogans such as "Birth control — a plan to kill the negro
race" were seen in several
places and one wondered if perhaps the striving and in many
cases starving members of the
lower ecnoomic class did not
find comfort and security in
their numbers.
A solution must be found or
progress in living conditions
will be fatally retarded. There
was evidence of bright young
men in the various economic
planning committees of the
civil service and this was most
encouraging.
One of the greatest challenges exists in the area of
education. The University College, besides being a valuable
hotbed for federalism, has high

ill-conceived, non - productive,
and reflect sadly upon those
who make them. If he meant
it to be humorous, then it
shows that he lacks sufficient
insight to realize that some will

To the Canadian, this may
be damaging to self esteem. To
the British, it will be regarded
as regrettable since we know
that it is not our majority
view, but may be regarded by
others as such. I hope it will
be taken at its truth worth —

The Editor,
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Why don't you quit knocking the fraternities. Is it their
fault they're responsible for
almost all the evils that beset
this campus, the drunkeness
and racjai discrimination, the
increased fees and the illegitimate children of the co-eds?
No! Because frat boys are sick,
sick, sick. They are forced into joining fraternities because
nowhere else can they find
people like themselves, people
who are too shallow, too self-
centered to have any real interest in anything other than
their own material being. It is
them of whom T. S, EJiot said
We are the hollow men
"We are the hollow men
Leaning together
Headpieces      filled      with
straw."
The main reason most of
these egocentric pseudo-intellectuals join fraternities is .to
make the acquaintance of
people whom they hope to use
as stepping stones to their own
financial success in later life.
While these people are to be
pitied, as are all the mentally
unsound, they should not be allowed to flourish any more
than others of their condition.
The U.B.C. campus must cease
to be an asylum, for them. Better to disband the fraternities
and turn the members out into
society as individuals. Then
and only then will they have a
chance to become useful
citizens.
Your truly, y
B. MacDougall,
standards and prestige. Secondary schools were being built as
money permitted and many students were receiving financial
aid to attend. Primary education is also in this stage and
the various church groups are
making sound contributions
through their schools.
Classroom discipline and
control are chaotic in most
schools and on attending a day
of teaching I was amazed that
anything could be accomplished
at all. Overcrowding of facilities was so acute in this school
(one of the best in Kingston)
that two classes were going on
in the same room, the two
teachers in opposing corners.
In addition to this, because
education is not compulsory
(it can't be at the present state
of facilities) classes vary on
different days by as many as
10 to 20 students. I have the
greatest respect for the courage' and fortitude of West Indian teachers.
In' the field of culture, a
generalization could be made
to the effect that all the Canadian students found the West
Indian cultural mixture vibrant
and colorful. This was particularly so in the emergence of
the African heritage. Without
a doubtj the cultural group had
the most interesting study during the formal seminar.
Much could be written about
the insecurity of the family
unit, the housing shortage, the
slums, the wealthy, the dislike of the tourist but the attraction of his dollar, the wonderful hospitality extended to
Canadians and so on.
However, this report will
close with mention of federation. While within the confines
of UCWI, federation seemed a
true reality. The students talked of federation; they themselves came from all areas and
the Canadians pre-supposed its
validity. It was only until later
in the program when other
people were met and approacn-
ed on the question that many
of the difficulties ahead were
understood and appreciated.
The islands are each extrem-
yl insular arid jealous of their
own welfare. The total vision
necessary to create this most
difficult of governmental structures has not been grasped by
the general populace. The long
term of advantages that outweigh short term misalloca-
tions have not been clearly
and frankly stated for all to
know. One can only wish them
well in making the paper federation a reality.

"Two CPR trains, bound East

"Rescuers had to step over
bodies of children still cluiching

Jack Cahill, Sun Staff Reporter, gave this as an example
of a newstory, simple and direct,
yet producing feeling.
Jack, and Jim Banham former "Ubyssey" editor, visited
the camlpus on Saturday as the
first speakers in a new Ubyssey
staff training program.
The program will continue
next Saturday, with a staff
luncheon, followed by speakers
from various facets of the publications world.
Experienced newsmen will
also come weekly to help in
actual production of the paper.
Cahill outlined the characteristics of a good reporter and
gave  tips   on  newswriting.
A reporter he said must* have
sympathy for fellow humans,
feeling for others problems and
be a person that others like to
talk to.
Jack added that he is proud
of being "just" a reporter and
that he had no use for a more
glamorous  title.
To be called a "bloody good
reporter" is the best compliment
a newsman can get.
Charles Dickens and Ernest
Hemingwiay always considered
themselves primarily reporters,
said Cahill.
A good reporter should write
simply, efficiently, and honestly.
He should just state facts, which
are interesting enough in themselves to attract attention. A
newswriter should not play with
words.
Jack used his Archbishop ex-
! pose as an example of a factual
story that had a great impact.
One of Jacks duties above and
beyond the call of duty was to
inform the archbishops children
of their fathers activities. Their
mother had thought it best to
keep the children ignorant of
he facts: when she decided the
time had come to tell them the
truth she called on Jack.
Jim Banham, who is now head
of the UBC Information Service gave critical advice on the
production of the Ubyssey.
He suggested ways to improve
our coverage by "digging" for
news and following up any and
all leads.

Permanent Facilities
Grow Near Westbrook
By FINLAY A. MORRISON (Faculty of Pharmacy)
An expenditure of approximately $675,000 has been
approved by the Board of Governors for the construction of
permanent facilities for the Faculty of. Pharmacy.
On October-5 excavation commenced just to the south
of the present Wesbrook building.
This new building will be
linked to the existing Wesbrook building on all four
floor levels by a corridor, similar to those which now exist
in the new chemistry building
and the new biological science
building.
The new building, 128' x
50', will house the offices, undergraduate laboratories, graduate research laboratories
and lecture rooms. *
The Pharmacy building will
be finished in keeping with
the existing Wesbrook bwild-
ing as well as future buildings
to be constructed in the Health
Science area of the campus.
LAB IN BASEMENT
The Pharmaceuters division
y/ill utilize the basement floor.
It will consist of a large undergraduate laboratory/ which
may be divided into two smaller laboratories by means of
a sliding door.
A manufacturing laboratory
with its own control laboratory, a research laboratory
and a small sterile preparation room and a general storage room will also occupy this
area.
On the main floor will be
several staff offices, a student
reading room, a 7"5-seat lecture room and a dispensary
laboratory, to handle sixteen
students.
DISPENSARY FOR STUDENTS
A dispensary, adjacent to
the laboratory, will serve as
a practical teaching area for
senior students. It is-anticipated it will also handle the dispensing for the students'
Health Service which is, housed
in the Wesbrook building.
The second floor is devoted
to the Medicinal Chemistry division. Here are.staff offices,
a large medicinal chemistry
laboratory, a smaller laboratory, a balance, instruction
and dark room, a graduate
research laboratory and a seminar room.

COMRADES UNITED
Pharmatrivia...
By LES KOPAS (Ubyssey Features Writer)
Pharmacy has an active student government within the
faculty. Since there are only about 140 students in all years
of pharmacy, they get to know each other as friends, unlike
members of the larger faculties such as Arts and Science or
Engineering where most students remain strangers to most of
each other.
Because of the small sire of the faculty, the undergraduate society executive can work closely with its members. The
three years of common study tend to negate the gap between
the first and final year students which exists in faculties presenting longer and more diversified courses.
The following pharmacy students hold positions on this
year's Pharmacy Undergraduate Society.

By GORDON A. GROVES
(Faculty of Pharmacy)
Radical changes in the profession of Pharmacy have
taken place over the last few
decades.
The Pharmacist of old was
largely concerned with the collection and ' distribution of
drugs through the filling of
prescriptions. Today, although
he still plays an important
role in the distributive functions of the drug industry, his
scope of activity has been
greatly enlarged.
JOBS WAITING
Graduate Pharmacists this
year will find drug industry
jobs waiting for them in research laboratories, produce
development or production
supervision, if not in analytical
laboratories operated by both
the federal government and
private industry. Others will
find their way into the fields
of retail or hospital pharmacy,
or become sales representatives for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
The definition of pharmacy
used by the U.B.C. Faculty
points out that pharmacy is a
health profession just as medicine, dentistry and nursing
are, and that the conception of
this field as a trade \t incorrect.
FOUR YEAR COURSE
The degree offered by the
Faculty is that of Bachelor of
Science in Pharmacy, and will
be expanded, in the 1960-61
term, from a three to a four
year course. The four year programme has been optional at
U.B.C. for two years, but will
become compulsory next year,
tt is essentially -a blending of
theoretical and applied educational processes. It differs from
night academic courses in that,
by offering a sound basis for
the practice of any aspect of
the profession, it prepares students for more than the mere
dispensing of drugs.
Cours^ in Chemistry, Physics, and Zoology are given
early in the four year course,
providing a good general
grounding in the basic scien- '
ces. A study of the fundamen-

Pharmacists have the responsibility of safeguarding public
health  by carefully supervising the sale of drugs and medicines to the public. They do
so through retail drug stores,
either the so-called profession-
nal pharmacy, which deals in
filling   prescriptions   only,   in
the super-drug store, or in the
more   traditional   drug  store.
Graduates with an interest in'
merchandising   and   meeting
the public will find this field
interesting, rewarding and remunerative.
DOCTORS' HELPERS
Pharmacists entering the
field of hospital pharmacy
provide pharmaceutical service of a strictly professional
nature. He must have current
understanding of the newest
medications and therapeutic
agents. Physicians rely upon
hospital pharmacists to provide information on drugs,
and accurate dosages of the
toxic and potent substances
used in modern treatments.
The federal government employs pharmacists  in government   hospitals,   and   also   as
inspectors, analysts and technicians.
DRUG PUSHERS
The production of the drugs
used  today  is  a  complicated
and involved process providing unlimited opportunities to
the pharmacis. Manufacturing
pharmacy    requires   research
and control chemists to work
with medicines, cosmetics, bio-
logicals  and  so  on.  The  distribution of these finished products is handled by  pharmacists who represent the manufacturers to the pharmaceutical and medical professions.
In conclusion it may be said
that the field of pharmacy is
one of great complexity and
diversity and there is an opportunity    in   this   profession
' for any individual with an in-
, vMerest in. both science and the
.„welfare of his fellow man.
WHAT, SPIRITS?
Pharmiscellany...
By LES KOPAS (Ubyssey Features Writer)   '
This is a pretty serious page.
That is as it should be, because the students iri this small
but spirited faculty take their work seriously. They wrote the
articles themselves, or had their professors do so for them.
And so the tone was set.
But beneath their acid-stained lab coats beat happy
hearts. No, this is not because they have been sampling some
of the drugs they study, but because they know how to get
away from their work when the time comes, having gay
times.
Some of these gay times are whispered about in private,
off-the-record conversations, but never, never are they openly
discussed. The Elixer Mixer and the Tranquilizer Trot are such
examples. Both of these parties are restricted to faculty members, but they do hold one function to which outsiders are invited. This is the Bromo Ball, which was held Oct. 16 in the
Brock Lounge.
Other activities of the more athletic students are touch
football, curling, basketball, bowling and volleyball, in ail of
which sports pharmacy teams are entered.

Unlucky For 'Birds
By MIKE HUNTER (Ubyssey Sports Reporter)
Dietrich-Collins 63, U.B.C. 61
Alberni 57, U.B.C. 49.
* U.B.C.'s tired Thunderbird basketballers struggled home
from Alberni Sunday, after dropping their second game in two
nights.
They were thumped  57-49 by the Athletics,  and  edged
63-61 by the power-packed Dietrich-Collins crew.
They were tired because they
had played their fourth Intercity game in two weeks. Birds
have the bulk of their schedule
pushed into the month of
November, to leave room for the
Christmas Exams.
FRIDAYS GAME A THRILLER
Friday's game was probably
the best game of the young season in the league. The exciting
second-half play had 550 fans on
the edge of their seats. The pro-
Bird crowd, saw Jack Pomfret's
boys miss several golden opportunities to take the lead in the
final minutes. Then "ailing" Bob
Pickell shovelled in a fantastic
under-handed layup with six
seconds left to steal the victory.
'Birds big rookie Dave Way
led all point-getters with 18. Norris Martin and Barry Drummond each got 13.
ROUGH FIRST HALF
The first half was dominated
by rough and sloppy play, highlighted by a near-blow-up by
D-C's Ed Malecki. Malecki seemed rather unhappy with the officiating and didn't hesitate to
show his displeasure.
Norris got 10 of his team's
19 first-quarter points. He got
as Tar as 13 points on this unfortunate Friday and a black
cat crossed his path.
FAST SECOND HALF
The- play speeded up in the
second half. The Birds began to
hustle, and they tied it half-way
through the 3rd quarter, Mike
Potkonjak, last year's Senior A
rookie-of-the-year, showed some
hustle and rebounding.
Terrible shooting cost the
Birds the lead and probably the
game early in the fourth period.
They came back in the final
minutes, Ken Winslade tying it
61-61 with a minute to play.
Then ' came Pickell's dramatic
shot.
BIRD'S LOOSE IN  ALBERNI
Saturday night in Alberni, the
Birds started fast and finished
slowly. Their driving offence
was unable to keep up with the
home-towta Athletics. Led by
"their sharp-shooting forwards,
the Alberni men took a five-point
half-time lead. John Kootnekoff
(12 points) and Ron Bisset (13
points) led the winners. Barry
Drummond headed the UBC
team with 15 points.
NEXT GAME BREAKS TIE
Tihe weekends play left the
Birds tied for first place with
Deitrich-Collins and Alberni,
but both teams have a game in
hand. Birds get a chance to take
the lead again Thursday at the
Churchill Gym, when they meet
Deitrich-Collins again. Game
time is 8:30.
BRAVES BEAT BYNG
n Friday's preliminary game,
UBC Braves whipped the Lord
Byng high school team 54-31. It
was Byng's first game this year.
Ian Matheson led raves with 14
points and Stu Gardner got 10.

Birds Baffled
On Mucky "Fieid
n
By FRED FLETCHER (Ubyssey Sports Reporter)
U.B.C. Thunderbirds did not get a1 heroic welcome when
they landed at Vancouver International Airport yesterday
morning, two hours behind schedule.
They were met by one or two cheerleaders and a few
booster, club members.
Old man weather, got together with TCA and Lionel Conacher
Jr. to keep people away.
CONACHER STARS
Conacher rushed for 188 yards Saturday to score four touchdowns and lead Western Ontario Mustangs to a 34-7 victory.
The Easterners were not pushed too hard, although the 'Birds
gave it all they had, observers were unanimous in agreeing that the
Mustangs deserved to take home the Churchill Cup.
Brother act, Jim and GOrd Olafson, along with "old pro" Jack
Henwood, were almost the sum total of the UBC offence.
;      Henwood was the work-horse, carrying the ball 18 times for
72 yards.
JIM GETS T.D.
Jim Olafson picked up the 'Birds' only TD after a UBC march
late in the game. Reliable Dave Barker converted to round out the
Seven point total, ^
. : ■■. Conacher -and running-mate Meccc- Polizianzi did most of the
tjamage for. Western. Polizianzi rushed for 90 yards and picked up
one touchdown.  -
-"vBOth -were rested in the second half, preventing a more devastating; defeat; .
■'■■£-. The pass defence that UBC had worked on for a week and a
Raff before the trip was wasted as Mustangs moved mainly on the
ground. They made 347 yards rushing and only 107 passing on
tjie greasy field.
Thunderbirds had a total offence of 241 yards.
WESTERN MOVES AT WILL
The strength of the Eastern squad is pointed up by the fact
tjhat they moved, more or less, at will through the UBC defensive
6*ont wall—a thing that our neighbours to the south had been unable to do with any consistency.
Coach Frank Gnup was saying yesterday, "They owned the
ball, and they kept it." He added that they had the ball for over
two-thirds of the game.
Western used the famous Edmonton-born double full-back offence and .were, almost as effective in grinding out first downs and
Ifetaining possession.
According to Gnup, lack of speed at all positions was the
'•Birds" big weakness.. This fault has plagued them all season.
BEST PLAY OF GAME
Gnup felt that the UBC touchdown was the best play of the
fame. Backs Bruce McCaUum and Roy Bianco vicious blocks to
spring Jim Olafson for the score.
Griup lauded the game play of Gary Bruce who, though in-
T-Birds Mud Through
Jured, played a topnotch defensive game for UBC. Bruce has been
«n excellent operative in the defensive secondary for Frank all
season.
Middle guard Doug Mitchell also played a good game as did
Strong two-way man Roy Bianco.
MUSTANGS PAR WITH WHITWORTH
General team opinion seemed to be that the Mustangs were on
a par with Whitworth of the Evergreen Conference, who whitewashed UBC 42-0 in an exhibition. The big difference is that Western is primarily a running ball club while Whitworth beat the
'Birds by making long gains through the air.
Eastern Canadian College football is similar to the Evergreen
Conference variety in that both areas subsidize their players.   This
enables them to start working out earlier and to play a longer season.
|MALL CROWD
A small crowd of two thousand braved the cold wet conditions
to watch the Canadian university grid championship played in a
sea of mud at Varsity Stadium.
Frank Gnup stated bluntly the field was the worst he had ever
geen.
Despite what the morning downtown paper may say we have
it oq good authority that yardsticks were not used in this champion-
Ship competition.
It seems that hankies were used as a substitute.
Perhaps this is an indication of how seriously the easterners
took our threat to their football supremacy.
..•' Perhaps they had good reason. As in many other fields the
^Wesf lags behind the East, but football in the West is growing. In
"Cfew^years, maybe, we'll be the best in the country—not just the
vjh^t^ the l^st.   As Coach Gnup said, "There's always next year."
Jack Henwood gets no running room through muddy Western line

Well, Next Year!

East is East—but in the west, 'Birds are still best!
Excluding the gridiron niudfest in Toronto's Varsity Sta-
dium Saturday afternoon, the trip to Eastern Canada was a
complete success.
fresh from a 14-hour plane trip to the Churchill Cup grid
festical, 'Birds' manager Joe Dang reassuringly cleareB up any
doubts or misconceptions we might have had about Canada's
second largest city before the historical journey east.
NIAGARA STILL FALLING
Joe assured us that Niagara is still falling—as wet as ever; ,
that Frank Gnup has many friends in Eastern Canada; that Toronto can be wetter .than Vancouver—especially when important
football games are scheduled, and that standard "of college football
practised, in that part of the country is far superior to our own.
Joe, sporting one of the flashy blazers which sponsors, The
Toronto Star, presented to all the 'Birds, teld us the boys had given ,
it their "all".
"We were hoping it would be a closer game than it was," he
repeated.
'BIRDS GAVE IT ALL
A star all season, Jim Olafson turned in his gamest performance of the season:—splitting his helmet in the process. A couple
of standout backfielders, Bruce McCaUum and Roy Bianco, cleared
the path of would-be tacklers for 'Birds' lone touchdown.
Bruce Allardyce went into action with a leg that was injured
earlier in the season.   Yesterday afternoon he was back in Vancouver General.-
JON AT THE TRIGGER
Quarterback Jon Morris took pain-killer pills to permit his
continuing at the trigger slot—after injured legs tightened up.
A .sparkplug named Jack Henwood convinced about 3,000
viewers that the West -has some pretty effective mudders, too.
Try-guy Gary Bruce played with a stiff arm—also spent a
quarter in the dressing room with a doctor and Manager Joe—having his "mudshot" eyes cleared.
FRANK SAYS F"IYE
Chief Frank, who guided his boys to the top of the western-
circuit, says it will take another five years before western collegiate football will stand up with the eastern (scholarship-inspired)
football.
Joe, speaking on behalf of the 'Birds, thanks the fans for the
telegram and its words of encouragement with 532 names, which
they counted while chewing nails in Toronto's King Edward Hotel.
JOE SAYS THANKS
"It certainly gave the boys and coaches a lift. We were also
happy to see the cheerleaders and a few others who came out to
the airport to welcome us Monday," he added.    The welcoming
party included about she to "eight people more 4han the .number,
which greeted B.C.'s famed Lions upon their prairie return. "PAGE EIGHT
