 TOTEM ALL-AMERICAN THIRD TIME
Stewart's Yearbook
Upper Year
Totem Pix
Taken Now
TOTEM PHOTOGRAPHER is
now making appointments for
second, third and fourth year Arts
and Commerce students, according
to information received from Jean
MacFarlone, editor of the yearbook.
MacFarlane would like to see th1
appointment sheet in the Quad kept
filled every day in order to accomplish a maximum amount of
work hi a minimum of time.
According to MacFarlane, if the
photographer's schedule is upset it
will cause a delay in the publication of the Totem. Tardy completion of the photography has been
the major cause for delayed publication In previous years.
It is not necessary for second
and and third year students to be
photographed if their pictures appeared hi Totem last year. Those
pictures will be used again this
year. However, graduates miurt
have new pictures of themselves
taken in gowns and hoods.
Arts and Commerce students in
second, third and fourth years will
be taken for the next three weeks.
At the end of that time the other
faculties are scheduled in turn.
A charge of $1.50 is made for
each picture. The student* is permitted three sittings and receives
an enlargement of the final copy.
Students who have found it impossible to make appointments during their scheduled time should
check with the photographer. The>
may manage to have their pictures
taken if others break or cancel
appointments.
The photographer, Mr. J. C.
Walberer is located in the Women's
Executive Room on the main floor
, of the Brock building.

UBC Featured In
Coming Issue Of
Montreal Paper
UBC, CANADA'S SECOND largest University will be feature!
in an eight page rotogravure article in the Montreal Standard,
October 22. The article was written by Zoe Bieler, nee Brown
Clayton, a former editor of the
Ubyssey.
Preview of the Standard article
states that "If the Canadian Government gave its housing problem
to The University of British Columbia they would find a way of
solving it."
Other comments in the preview
v/cre; "This photo story shows
how Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie is
doing everything that can be done
not only in housing students but
by adding more new courses for
veterans than any other Canadian
college." "Although most colleges
are trying to house their students
somewhere nearby, UBC has
moved huts as far as 350 miles
and houses its students light on
the   campus."
"Before the war this was the
youngest and smallest of Canada's
universities. >o«3ay it is second
only to Toronto University."
Copies of the Montreal Standard will be on sale on the campus
next week at the Book Store and
the AMS Office.

Cops Coveted Prize
FOR THE THIRD TIME, "The Totem", University of
B.C. yearbook, has won the "All-American Honor Rating"
from the National Yearbook Critical Service of the National
No. 10       Press Association.
Orchids for Stewart
This award was won in competition with yearbooks from
colleges throughout Canada and the United States. UBC is
the only Canadian university to have ever won the All-
American rating.
Speaking of the prize winning
yearbook the NSPA judge Said,
"The Totem did a good job of
capturing the spirit of UBC school
life. The contents of the yearbook are of superior quality."
"The Memorial layout and poem
aro most effective," continued the
judge.
ONLY FOUR
Out of 671 yearbooks submitted
to the judges, the Totem was one
of four in the class of universities
with 2,500-plus students to receive
the coveted award.
Much of the credit for the mc-
ces of the Totem goes to editor
Bill Stewart, who has since left
UBC to continue his medical studies at the University of Washington. Stewart had to cope with paper shortages, printing difficulties,
late copy and covers. Ht was assisted by Associate Editors Jean
MacLarlane and Nancy Macdonald.
•
ORCHIDS
Don Ferguson helped with the
Greek Letter Society pages, and
the photographers, under Gus
Worthlngton, contributed their time
and talents to make the 1941 Totem
a winner.
Also deserving credit are Ward
and Phillips, printers, and Cleland
and Kent, engravers. For several
weeks in the spring term, the members of these two firms slaved
night and day with the editors
to get the Totem on the campus
before exams ended. The fates
were against them. However the
yearbook was published by the
middle of May.
The evolution of the Totem from
p book of class photos to an All-
American yearbook is one of battles
and struggles. In 1938, it made its
first step forward and took its
present form, edited by David
Crawley.
TECHNICOLOR
The following year, under John
Garrett, the Totem stepped out
into color and continued to win
honors for the next few years. Publication was suspended in 1942 because of paper shortages and other
printing necessities. The yearbook
was not published again until the
spring of 1945, under John Green.
The 1946 All-Amerkan Totem is
the second yearbook to be edited
by the Publications Board since the
end of the war.
A few copies of the prize-winning Totem may still be bought in
the AMS office for the cost price of
three dollars. Students are advised to get their copies before
tho surplus is sold.

CONGRATULATIONS
THE UBYSSEY is anxious to be the first
to congratulate the staff of the 1946 Totem
for once again winning an All-American
award for UBC's yearbook.
The new victory is the third time that
the Totem has received the highly-regarded
award, which is presented by the National
Scholastic Press Association.
It was for the 1941 Totem that the year
book's mascot — Totie — could first take
proudly unto himself the title "All-Ameri-
can .
That was the first time that a Canadian
university annual had been to honored, and
as far as is known at the time of writing UBC
remains tiie only college in that category.
Tiie Totem's victory in 1041 was followed
up by another All-American award in 1942.
Because of the war there was no yearbook
in 4943 or 1944. The 1945 Totem got back
into production by winning itself a First
Class award—just one step below the All-
American title.
That's the great record of the Totem—a
record which has put UBC's name at the top
of the ladder for North American college
annuals.
In taking note of the 1946 edition's success,
the Ubyssey wants to remind the campus
that praise for that success should be given
to the student staff of the Totem last year.
First among the staff, of course, was the
editor, Bill Stewart. He was assisted editorially in no small measures by Jean MacFarlane, Nancy Macdonald, Don Ferguson,
and Luke Moyls.
Those who are looking for any more names
can look again, for it was that small group
who did the work and therefore can take the
credit.
Pictorially the book was the work of Gus
Worthlngton and his Publications Board
Photography Department, and of Mr. J. C.
Walberger, the Totem portrait photographer.
To the list of those deserving praise and
thanks should be added the production staff
of Cleland-Kent Engraving Company, and
Mr. Charlie Phillips of Ward and Phillips
Printing Limited.
When the NSPA was doing the scoring on
the 1946 Totem, the judges took into consideration the extra-ordinary problems which
all those people had to meet in overcoming
a year of material shortages.
For meeting those problems so well, the
Ubyssey extends to all of them from all the
university a brotherly word of thanks.
The Wassail Bowl
By NORM KLENMAN
WE AGREE, old sport. When the Bowl
turns poetry critic, it's time to cancel your
subscription. But after reading a poem called "Lyric" in the latest Thunderbird quarterly, even an illiterate columnist will do
mad passionate things.   As Luke would say,
"natch!"
"LYRIC" (Anonymous)

I kneel to speak a prayer.
the leaves bend upward to meet you
shining, when you're there
because you're there
the hymns I learn
are empty, old
and wan
bright my love, all shining
to you quietly,
at dawn.
No consistency whatsoever, "Anonymous"
old sport. Why break your own rules and
capitalize the "I"? An oversight, perhaps.
And look; you've forgotten and gone and put
a period at the end! Stanzas 2 and 3 indicate that you're not a madman for regularity; so why baulk at making line 3 stanza 1
irregular? It would only seem proper to
put the word "shining" in line 3; then you
tould put the comma at tiie beginning of
line four, just for originality.
GOOD LINES MAKE SOME SENSE
We picked up our old Enlish II text the
other day, and spent an interesting hour or
two reading over some of the poetry of the
old masters. Great stuff. May we quote a
few scattered lines?
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? . . ."
(Shakespeare)
•'Perth, be not proud, though some have called
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so . . ."
(Donne)
"Vek daffodils, we weep to see
Too haste away so soon . . ." (Herrick)
"f doaM na, whyles, but thou may thieve:
What then? poor beatle, thou maun live!" (Burns)
"I looked and saw your love
hi the shadows of your heart . . ."
(D. G. Rosttti)
"Ust  my  Inscription  be  this soldier's  disc . . ."
(Owen)
Lesson one has ended now, and you will
note from it that the above lines, though removed from their context, have a pleasant
ring to them, which may be inscribed in part
to their rhyme and metre, and in part to the*
quality of expression.
You could put the first line quoted (from
Shakespeare) beside the "last one (from
Owen), and though three hundred years
sperate the authors, there is little incongruity of sound.   Viz: I
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Let my Inscription  be this soldier's disc . . ."
The point we wish to make, you see, is
that the pure mechanics of poetry have not
changed a great deal until very recently.
Perhaps a more fluid style, and a greater
variety of form, have been achieved in the
last fifty years.
But what has happened in the last twenty-
odd years? We poor illiterates stand and
wonder. Modern poetry, you know, fc the

God have mercy on our poor experimental

A TREND IS A TREND
Mind you, not all poetry written today is
Ezra Poundish; but so many of these stabs
at the new and bizarre claim fam» for only
two reasons: (1) obscurity of meaning and
(2) experimental grammatical form, featuring positively incorrect punctuation. Poetic
licence is the only excuse offered, apparently.
Coming back to Mr. "Anonymous": perhaps he is only pulling our legs, just like the
two Australia army types during the war,
who hoodwinked a highbrow poetry magazine with a series of "modern" lines culled
from U.S. Army Bacteriological pamphlets.
Frankly, we hope so, because "Lyric" is
lousy.

Culture and Bull Sessions
Her* and there across the campus
of UBC. students of all years, departments and faculties may be
seen gathering in little groups.
They are usually talking, or at
least, some of them are talking
and the rest are sitting quietly and
just listening in.
The topics are many and varied.
Often there is no topic; the gathering discusses anything that comes
up—shoes and ships, sealing wax,
sprot, lectures, international affairs!
and coeds skirts.
There doesn't seem to have to
he any reason for a group to
gcther, or for a topic to enter the
discussion. A couple of Toties will
wander over to the Caf after a
particularly gruelling lecture, get
a cup cf coffee, and then sit themselves down.
Likely as not they will hit upon
something brought up in the lecture and idly begin discussing it.
ln the course of their discussion
they will probably become sidetracked on some subject or other
that comes up. Then," perhaps, another tribesman will join them and
then another, until the discussion
that is taking place does not even
slightly Resemble the orginal topic.
Barnyard Democracy
One thing, however, is common
to all bull sessions. Everyone has a
chance to say what he thinks—no
holds barred. If a speaker doesn't
agree with what someone has said
he may be heard. The mere fact
that nobody in turn will believe
him has nothing to do with the
case.
The only prerequisites for participation are a good temper and
The Point
In spite of'all that has been
said against people just talking
aimlessly, there is much to be said
for them .
For instance: A discussion in a
group like this will eventually
and inevitably centre around a
topic in which the people present
are informed, or at least interested.
If the latter is true, then to a
certain extent the former will be
also.
This free discussion among those
who consider themselves equals
means a lot to their development.
By discussing things that supposedly lie in the recess of one's brain,
one finds out whether or not they
lots of wind. Both are needed in
great amounts.
The good temper and wind are

Edited by DON LANSKAIL
The noon meeting scheduled for
tomorrow has been postponed until noon tomorrow. This has been
done in order to get membership
records up-to-date in preparation
for the initiation of new members,
and those who have not been Inl-
ated before. This ceremony will
Uke during that meeting.
Among proposed business:
Nominations for honary officers of
the Branch. This honour has been
authorized by the Branch membership for faculty members and any
others who have contributed extraordinary service to Leglonaires
^and campus veterans in general.
Any such nomination will be entertained at next Friday's meeting.
The Legion constitution does NOT
specify that such honourary officers
need be ex-service personnel	
Resolution criticizing those newspapers which overemphasize the
word "veteran" in connection with
crime reporting Following the
suggestion made after the last
meeting, all committe and other
reports, will be mimeographed and
distributed to those attending in
order to save time, and allow consideration of general business. . . ..
The Legion Pipe Band has really
got going, and a successful practice
took place last Saturday morning.
Their first public appearance will
likely be during the "Homecoming"
ceremonies.   A   generous  sponsor,
who refuses to have his name made
public, is financing the complete
equipment of the Band. He is so
enthusiastic over the project, that
he has taken steps to perpetuate
the organization after Branch 72
is dissolved m the normal course of
events. The Royal Stuart Kilts and
all instruments will pass into the
hands of the AMS from the Legion,
probably in about five years time,
and from then on it will be "their
pigeon".
Don't forget the "Legion Mixer"
at 9 p.m. tomorrow night. Some
snappy entertainment, a top-flight
emcee, and good music has been
"laid on" for it. All those attending will be wearing name cards
so this is the strangers opportunity
to get around and make some
"valuable contacts". All the American ex-G.I.'s are being offered an
invitation to attend at the special
Legion rate.
Miscellaneous Hie Pipe
Band will hold a Chanter Practice
in Hut 13, at 1Z30 Friday	
Grant Livingston and the Executive
extend their best wishes for the
success of the Princess Ball tonight. They would also like an
introduction to some of the princesses .... Look for the announcement about the Legion Dry
Canteen.
Letters To The Editor
In penning this letter I am
taking into full consideration the
possible fact that people who write
such letters are inclined to be considered as refugees from a psychologist.
This fact notwithstanding, I
would like to take this opportunity
to direct to the attention of certain thoughtless people certain
actions on their part during lectures which are annoying not only
to the lecturer, but to the majority
of the students.
These individuals aru divided
among the following categories:
1. The person who, having apparently taken the subject before,
chatters in an undertone ahead
of the lecturer, in what is really
a futile effort to disclose his intelligence.
2. The person with a cold, and
seemingly without enought sense
to use a handkerchief, who sniffles, snuffles, and snorts all during the lectures.
3. The person who insists on
resting his feet on the chair of
the student in front, and beating
out a devil's tattoo thereon.
This list could no doubt be added
to by other students, and could
possibly form the nucleus of a
column to be captioned, "People
We Could Cheerfully Choke!"

Largest In West
UBC BOASTS one of the largest parking lots in Western
Canada, capable of handling over 600 cars on a clear day.
But even this is insufficient to hold the myriads of autos flowing in from all corners of the gay little city of Vancouver. A
couple of hundred more cars are strewn liberally about the
campus in just about every unused nook and available cranny
to be found.
COEDS FLOCK TO JOIN       totem late?
GREEK LETTER GROUPS
A goodly portion of the 1200
odd varieties of cars marketed in
the last 25 years are represented
in this motley horde. They range
from mangy but serviceable Model Te to the ultra-modern but
equally serviceable '47 Stud.
Fords are easily the most popular or at least the most common
car found around UBC. Now people aro always making disparaging
remarits about Fords. Such as
saying that Hank makes his car
out of ould editions of the Saturday Evening Post and discarded
Oiliete raror blades. There are
two good reasons why this is obviously a falsehood. Neither of
which I can remember offhand,
the cloistered luxury of an automobile. I wouldn't miss my early
morning tussle with the jolly
throng of street car commuters
for anything.
Why the very thought of the
happy hours I've spent carelessly
draped over a lamp poet on the
corner of Balsam and Broadway
watching fully doaded 15's and
16's wUa by give me a warm
sticky feeling inside.
Incidentally, I'll give you odds
that streetcars flash past Balaam
faster than any other corner in
Vancouver.
Two or  three  of the  English
Huts Available
For Clubs Rooms
TWO NEW HUTS will sonn be
made available for club rooms it
was aamonuced recently by AMS
president, Ted Kirkpatrick.
Any organization needing a permanent club room is requested
to contact fhe Student Council by
letter before 12 noon, Saturday,
October 19.
In the letter it should be stated
what apace is required and what
facilities, such as furniture, book
shelves and music racks, are
needed.
When all of this information
has been collected by the council,
the hats will be partitioned and
furnished accorldngly.
The huts, which are situated
east of the Snack Bar, are 60' by
20' in size and have windows on
each aide.

that entirely new executive should
be formed this year.
He asked that nominations for
the portions of President, vice-
president, secretary, and fourth,
third, second and, first year representatives be handed in to the
AMS office not later than today.
Each nomination must be signed
by three members o fthe society.
Elections will be held tomorrow. It was also announced
at me meeting that Dr. Penfleld
of the Neurological Institute at
McGill will address the Pre-Med
students Tuesday, October. 29 In

right-handed menances are in evidence about the campus also. One
of them is the '28 Rolls Royce
that roars in from Acadia Camp
occasionally. Another is Bob Clothier's little red M.O. A glance

an indication of how much further

PHRATERES HANDBOOK tests
arc just one week away.
Phrateres has started again with
over 400 members, plus fifty associate members—upper classmen who
haven't time for meetings. There
are eleven sub-chapters, each
having 30 members.
AGOY 100 MEET
There ls a general meeting, especially for freshettes, in Agriculture 100, on Thursday noon.
Service girls are being urged to
join Phrateres. The organization

SOCIAL AND SERVICE
Phrateres is a social and service
club. They are well known for
their motto of 'Famous for Friend-
lines. The girls do social work
and service jobs on the campus.
An example of a campus job is
that of escorting the visiting team
to the Football Dances, which, by
the way, are sponsored by Phrateres.
DVA DOUGH
SOME DISAPPOINTED veterans
have found their checks have not
arrived yet. Dr. J. F. McLean
wishes to reassure them on this
point. It usually takes at least six
weeks after registering at the DVA

Vets are again warned that
checks will be returned to the
treasurer if they are not picked
up within a week after the date of
issue.

Doug Fromhart, Freshman
Finding His Way Around
By Frank Walden
HIS NAME is Douglas Fromhart and he's a freshman.
"Doc", as he is called, is a tall, thin, dark-haired kid who wears
glasses and calls Kamloops his home.
I spotted him as he sprawled comfortably on the library
lawrf, marvelling at the dexterity of the steam-shovel operator.
"Best damn operator I ever saw," he said.
Anxious  to   find   out  how  this
year's crop of freshmen are doing,
I began to quizz him about things
in general. At first he was reluctant to speak, but gradually warmed to his subject.
Doc was first impressed by the
"magnificdnce and greet beauty
of the campus". He likes the way
thc army huts are hidden behind
trees and buildings so that they do
not spoil the freshness of the campus. But later he was disgusted
with the way in which the campus
i; littered with lunch papers and
empty cigarette packages.
Doc's lecture rooms are too
crowded and he is usually one of
those to lose out in the rush for
seats. "The administration is doing a wonderful job in organizing
ar.d carrying on the classes under
such trying conditions," he commented.
Doc doesn't think much of the
way freshmen were initiated at
the beginning of the session.
"University students should have
more sense than to throw others
into the lily pond, carry out de-
panting exercises and cause personal loss and property damage,"
he said. Doc mentioned later on
that he was an interested sideline observer at these activities.
INCORPORATED   2*? MAY 1670. Whitman To Visit UBC Stadium
in Season's Third Grid Feature
THE QUESTION of whether or not Varsity's Thunderbird grid team was holding back the potent portion of their
abilities during last week's exhibition match against Western
Washington Vikings will be settled in the minds of the bewildered masses when the pride and joy of the campus tangles
with a chapter of Missionaries from Whitman College, Washington at Varsity Stadium Saturday.

Varsity Sweeps
Roundball Bill
The Varsity roundball club's
power exploded over the weekend
as they swept a doubleheader, 9-1
from U.B'.C. and 4-2 against Norquay on the holiday. U.B.C. were
being reversed on them both times,
dropping their Monday game 3-0
to Vancouver Rangers.
Saturday morning on the stadium
upper field the two Alma Mammy
soccer squads squared off for one
of their traditional grudge battles.
The number one team, Varsity,
lived up to its reputation by drubbing the undermanned and less
experienced U.B.C. crew. Kenn
Meyers who moved up from his
traditional full back position into
the centre-forward slot was Varsity's big siege gun in getting five
of the nine markers.
The other goal getters were
Bill Thomas with three and Gordy
Shepherd with one.
Monday at Kerrlsdale, UjB.C.
dropped their second game of the
weekdnd to Vancouver Rangers
who seemed to have the Blue and
Gold number, previously dropping
the Varsity squad last week end.
Thanksgiving Day at the campus
saw the Varsity team winning its
second game of the weekend, an
impressive win over Norquay.
The Norquay club opened the scoring in the first five minutes but
Varsity, led by Kenn Meyers, (
charged right back and were leading 2-1 at the half, Meyers getting
both counters. After the breather
Varsity kept up the pressure and
Pat Harrison notched two more,
one a scorcher from his right wing
position. Bob Wood got the first
Norquay goal while Harold Hart-
wig pushed  in their second goal
weight and height, they are said
to make up for in drive and precision. Although these boys average an age of only twenty years,
a good seventy-five per cent of
tihem have served In the U.S.
armed forces. And of this group
there are very few *rho have been
athletically idle during the war
years. Most of them played on
service teams of various types and
abilities.
Matching wits with UBC coach
Greg Kabat will be Raymond V.
"Nig" Borleske, a first class grid
mentor, who is serving his thirty-
first year on the reins of the
Whitman athletes.
HAS TROUBLES
"Nig" has been having troubles
of his own this year—troubles
much the same as encountered by
Kabat—since he has been unable
to crack the whip over his charges
until this fall. Borleske has been
faced with the task of shaping a
good team in a sport that has been
absent from the Whitman campus
for more than a year—and all in a
matter of days.
Such conditions should put UBC
and Whitman on a pretty even
par In that respect, and the outcome of the game should be more
then interesting, from any standpoint.
If the Thunderbirds live up to
their present reputations, their
spirits will be anything but dampened by their overwhelming defeat at the hands of the Western
Washington Vikings, during last
Saturday's game.
FENCING CLUB
THE FENCING CLUB will meet
hereafter on Tuesday from 11:30
to 12:30, on Wednesday from 3:30
to 5 and on Thursday from 9:30 to
10:30 in the stadium and Hut G4.
The coach will be in attendance
at all these periods. There is still
room for a few more newcomers.

Varsity's Rugger Fifteen
Blackens All-Blacks 20-0
By HAROLD MURPHY
ENGLISH RUGBY ushered in a new season on Thanksgiving weekend as university teams won one, tied one, and
lost one. On Saturday in spite of the hard playing of Pete
Hobson, Walt Hardwicke, and many Frosh newcomers, the
UBC second division team dropped their opener 9-0 to a
well-knit Ex-Brittania team.       —————————
On Monday in a double header
opener at Brockton Bowl, Varsity
lambasted North Shore All-Blacks
20-0, and in a thrill packed game
UBC tied the heavy threat of the
year, Meralomas, 6-all.
Although Varsity played well together and the scrum heeled the
ball well, the passing back was
not good at all times and the half,
five eighths, and some of the three
quarters were apparently over
anxious.
Once the line got moving, however, the All-Blacks were no match
for them. Russ Latham paced the
team with three tries and one conversion, while Ray Grant and Jeff
Corey each went over once.
In the other half of the double-
header UBC had the upper hand
most of the game. The first try
was made by Jack Armour, and
the kick was no good. Then Ron
Williams who was substitutlong at
five eighths ran after one at his
own kicks, caught it, passed it,
and Harry Cannon, one of the notable forwards, went over the line.
Saturday next the students take
to the field again. At Brockton
Bowl, UBC will get an opportunity
to equal their brother team's exploits as they face North Shore
All-Blacks. If the students play
a? well as they did on Monday
they should have no trouble in
winning.
Varsity meets Ex-South Burnaby in what should be a good
buttle. Stars of the last game, Latham, Graot and Corey, with a little
support and good passing from
thc rest of the team, should run
up an even greater number of
points.
Swim Club Wants
Aqua Polo Teams
UBC's swimming club may become the nucleus of a bigger and
better series of water polo tournaments, If the plan of the club'3
executive are put into action.
Water polo was introduced to
Varsity swimmers for the first time
last year, but competition consisted of only one game, an exhibition match in which Varsity crew
trimmed a Vancouver Amateur
Swimming Club team by a score
of 3-2.
This year the swim club hopes
to put water polo on a regular
iitramural basis. As well as prep-
ping a team of their own, the
swimmers are looking for entries
from other campus groups who
could possibly organize a water
polo team.
Those interested in entering or
becoming part of a water polo
team should contact Doug Whittle
foi full particulars.
If present plans work out, the
club will participate fully in two
big swimming meets this season.
One is the B.C. Championships
affair at Victoria on November 9.
The other is a lower mainland
championship .meet at Crystal Pool
on October 26.
The meeting elected Bob Marshell
President, and Peggy Winters treasurer. Also on the new executive
are George Darby team manager,
and Kay Wcrsfold, secretary.
BOB ESSON TAKES MEDAL
HONOURS IN TOURNEY
WHILE VARSITY'S more prominent golfers were finding trouble
all over the course, Bob Esson, a
newcomer to UBC golf took medal
honors in the qualifying round of
the University golf championship
with a 75 over the University golf
course.
Esson, who shot 40 on the first
nine and then roared home in 35,
edged Doug Bajus' 76 by one
stroke. Team member Bob Plommer slipped into third place with
a 79, one stroke ahead of Teddy
Chambers' even 80.
Bracketed at 81 were Ormy Hall,
Dick Hanley, Don Carmichael and
Oak Naftel. Hans Swinton, Russ
Latham, Davie Dale, Bob Williams,
and Johnny McKeen scored 82's.
Bob Reid was alone at 83 but
Walt Manning and Pete Birks ended the 16 qualifyers for the championship   flight   with   85.    George
Hartford. W. McKinnon, Ter»wi-
Taylor and Howie Fry also scored
85's but lost out on a draw for
places in the championship flight.
Bob Williams shot a gross 82,
and with a handicap of 20, took the
low net prize with a net 62.
Flights have been arranged for
those not qualifying for the title
flight and the draw is posted on
the bulletin board in the quad.
Members of the club are reminded to purchase their fl.00 membership tickets from the AMS office.
Failure to pay the fee will result in
not being allowed to compete in
the tournaments or taking advantage of the privileges extended at
the University golf course.
No women golfers showed up for

trained such ski experts as Gertie
Wepsala Beaton, Art Coles, Lew
Davis and many other top-eight
athletes.
Last Friday night at 6:00 p.m. in
his valuable time to help coach
the Varsity ski te3m. It proved
very valuable when the team
composed , of Arnie Teasdale,
Sandy Martin, John Frazee, Gordy
Cowan, Don Anderson and Maisie
FiWart, put in a very fair showing
i,i the various downhill and slalom events.
But this year, things tare going
to be diTerent acording to Peter.
Las Friday night at 6:00 p.m. in
the Gym, pre-ski season exercises
were held under Peter's direction

Such valuable instruction is a
credit to UBC ski members who,
if things go as planned, will take
a fair share of the silverware on
the mountain slopes this season.

SIDE-HILL GOUGINGS
The new club cabin, the Winter
Sports cabin situated on Grouses
Plateau, is rapidly nearing oom-
pletion of the necessary repairs
... A large membership forced
tlee finding of a bigger and better
cabin. . . . The Long Hike up
G;rabaldie last week-end was a
howling success — judging from
reports. . . . The big question is
how did so much equipment get
left behind. The found list on the
Quad is about one foot in length.
Seme party,  eh  what!  ...
WATER POLO

meeting for all men interested In
