 UBC TRIUMPHS
IN McGOUN CUP
Ken Hodkinson
By DEREK ALLEN
; The UBC Debating Union Friday night broke
a three-year monopoly the University of Alberta
had clamped over the coveted McGoun Cup.
'■ They   collected   seven   of   a   possible   eight
1! points   to   outscore   U.   of   A.,   with'   five,   the
.University of Manitoba, with four, and the University of Saskatchewan, which went scoreless.
The McGoun Cup, established in 1923 by
U. of A. economics Professor A. F. McGoun, is
emblematice of debating supremacy among the
four western universities.
Each school had two teams, one of which
stayed home to defend the affirmative, the other
of which travelled to represent the negative of
the same resolution: "That a boundary be drawn
at the Manitoba-Ontario border dividing Canada
into two separate countries."
Ken Hodkinson and Derek Frazer were
awarded four points in a unanimous decision
over Roy MacKenzie and Dick Armstrong of
the University of Manitoba.
The three judges, Alderman W. A. Street,
Province humorist Eric Nicol, and Dr. James
Tyhurst, head of the UBC Medical Faculty's
Department of Psychiatry, had one vote each,
and the winning team got one point extra.
In Alberta, Darcy Reddyhoff and Peter Hebb
picked up three more points by scoring a split
decision over U. of A.'s Sam Baker and Derril
Butler.
UBC is now eligible to compete with the
winners of parallel contests between eastern
Canadian universities. If they win at that level
they will go on to England for a further round
of debates with English universities and representatives of other countries.
Each speaker in the debates had 20 minutes
to present his argument either for or against the
resolution, followed by ;five minutes each of
rebuttal.
Ken Hodkinson was UBC's first speaker.
He set out a plea for two countries with individuality. "Let us have some diversity," was
his theme.
He argued, citing the  U.S.,  the  USSR and
China, that large countries produce a "mass
culture". This he defined as one in which the
individual has his mind made up for him, in
which politicians are sold to the public like
soap, and products of which had a "sameness"
—• looked as if they had been produced somewhere in a Ford factory.
Hodkinson said that Canada has two distinct
cultures — one east, one west; and that all
that was needed was a boundry to divide them.
Such a boundry would be economically feasible, he stated, because communications were
sparse between the two cultures. At Kenora,
two railways, one highway, and four wires cross
the proposed boundary, he said.
Manitoba's Dick Armstrong answered his
argument, saying that two highways crossed the
border at Kenora: the Trans-Canada and the
old Trans-Canada, which joins the new road
about 400 yards over the border.
Armstrong went on to condemn the "idiotic
plan for dual suicide" set out in the resolution.
Divide up Canada and the great mass-culture to
the south will swollow up the country in two
gulps, he said.
"Division would destroy all that has been
accomplished in a century," he said, pointing
out that what had been considered impossible
had been done — the British Colonies in North
America had been welded into one unit.
Derek Frazer was the second speaker for
UBC and the affirmative. He asked for sepera-
tion because the west is a drag on the east
economically, and is subsidized through taxation
of the eastern provinces.
To avoid a hopeless economic mis-match,
a clean division must be effected, was his argu-.
ment. The east not only turns out the bulk "of
Canada's production, but it has a higher rate
of growth. Both figures stand at 90 per-cent,
he said.
Roy MacKenzie, summing up for Manitoba,
started his speech wtih a few remarks on the
arguments   of   the   preceeding   speaker.    "Mr;

"Resolved that the death penalty be abolished," was the
topic for the Legion Cup debate
held on Monday noon in Bu.
*203.
Debaters for the affirmative
included Peter Fraser and
Graham Leslie of Phi Delta
Theta and for the negative,
David Wilder and Brian Wine
of Zeta Beta Tau. The negative
won the debate 2 votes to 1
over their opponents.
The negative argued that the
death sentence should only be
carried out for those guilty of
premeditated murder, treason,
and other major offenses, such
as killing for strictly mercenary
motives.
Mr. Wine stated that it costs
the B.C. Government $2500 a
year to keep the condemned
men alive in the Penitentiary.
Why waste this money on men
who, once their sentence is up,
are free to murder again as
long as out laws guarantee them
that their lives will be safe, even
after committing such acts of
violence, he asked.
A biblical quotation was given
in favour of the death sentence:
"He who smiteth a man shall
surely be put to death."
The affirmative argued that
those guilty of unpremeditated
murder and crimes of passion
should be set free, for those
released seldom return.
Mr. Fraser stated that prison
reform should include a better
understanding of the criminal
and efforts should be made to
turn him into  a  better citizen.
The 33 states in the world
who have abolished the death
penalty feel that the removal of
the penalty has not been a de-
terrant to commit criminal acts.
Life is considered too sacred in
the abolition countries to have
to execute their guilty.

"RESOLVED . . . THAT A
BOUNDARY BE DRAWN AT
THE MANITOBA - ONTARIO
BORDER DIVIDING CANADA
INTO TWO  COUNTRIES."
After a briefing with the
judges and the affirmative side
of the Resolution, Darcy Reddyhoff and I entered Convocation
Hall at University of Alberta,
to debate the above resolution
for J;he McGoun Cup competition between the four Western
Canadian Universities. We had a
slight "debate" before the meeting was called to order to decide
how high the reading desk
should be.
Sam Baker — affirmative, did
not explain the resolution as he
saw it, nor did he define his
terms: "The East and West" of
Canada. He quoted the Massey
Report which said that Canada
has no National Culture. This
plus his argument that there is
a lack of unity in Canada gave
him material to say that the poor
Western "Colony" in Canada
should  SECEDE  from  the rich
Carlyle once described a university as nothing but a set
©f books. Nowadays we know that it includes a bit more than
Itbat, though there is still a general suspicion that the Library,
as a, place to study, is a necessary part of the University.

I was able, however, to bring
out some enthusiasm from the
crowd in talking about the new
currencies of the proposed countries. I suggested "bucks" for
the east, and "does" for the
west. But I pointed out the difficulty of balancing does and
bucks in an agreeable exchange
rate. Further I said, there would
be dilemmas of deciding whether
Smallwood's face would be on
the 1 or 2 buck bill, and whether
Manning's should be on the 10
or 20 buck bill.
The first rebuttal came from
my colleague Darcy, who managed to read the resolution for
the third time. (It should have
been read and defined only once,
and by  the  affirmative.)
In answer to the charge that
Canada had no unity because it
had no flag, he said that Canadians placed higher values on
life than flags, and that they did
not become "hysterical at the
sight of a piece of bunting."
The main charge in the affirmative rebuttal was that we had
been too serious with the resolution. This I rebutted by explaining that the proposal to divide
Canada was a serious matter,
vital to life and limb and the
continuance of our very existence.
We concluded our case by
saying that the resolution was
"historically untenable, potentially dangerous to the peace of
the world, financially ruinous
for the people, and completely
unnecessary.
It was a very anxious two
minutes waiting for the. judges
decision. Finally it came. It was
a wonderful feeling to know we
had defeated the U. of A. who
had won the whole competition
for the past three years.
The results  of the McGoun
debates began coming in. The
U. of-A. had won in Saskatchewan giving them a total of five
points. Manitoba beat Saskatchewan in Winnipeg giving them
four points so far. The debate
still going in Vancouver would
determine whether UBC or
Manitoba would capture the
Cup.
We finally made contact with
Derek Frazer in Vancouver who
told us that he and Ken Hodkinson had won their debate at
UBC, by a unanimous decision.
The total UBC score was seven
out of a possible 8 points, which
gave UBC the cup over second
place U. of A. The four of us
had regained the McGoun Cup
for UBC after nine years of
wins  by prairie teams.
Our team was chosen after a
contest in late November. Since
then, we debated the resolution
on both sides during several
practice debates. Three of us are
newcomers to Inter - Collegiate
debating — Frazer was on the
team two years ago.
I feel that UBC winning the
cup and being able to enter a
team of two in the Canadian
University Debating Championships will help to restore debating at UBC to its former
prominence as a prime university tradition. The "Oxford
Union" is as well known for its
debating as the Oxford-Cambridge race on the Thames is
known for its rowing.
The winners of the Canadian
intra-mural trophy at UBC, and
the winners of the Inter-Faculty
Debates will meet for the UBC
campus debating finals on February 25, as part of "Speaking
Week" which is tied in with the
Model Parliament where debates
are featured as performed in
the House of Commons.

''Your theory nf evolution by
natural selection implies that if
every organism had survived
and produced offspring, then
every kind of plant and animal
that exists, and has ever existed, would have been produced
without any natural selection at
all (as well of course as myriads
of others). In other words all the
characters present in all organisms were the necessary consequences of the earliest and most
primitive organism."

It followed therefore, that if

wonder Darwin was disturbed.

I, as the fourth speaker, had
to again read the resolution,
stressing the words '.'boundary

the west seceding had nothing
to do with the resolution. My
reference later on to "Bible BUI

feeling from the audience, who
had been told by the chairman
not to heckle the debators. However, I am sure that phrase

UBC TRIUMPHS
(continued from page 1)
Roy MacKenzie, summing up
for Manitoba, started his speech
With a few remarks on the arguments of the preceding speaker. "Mr. Frazer's mind was set
at the turn of the century and
has remained set," he said.
He said that the east has a
very real need for the west, for
the east produces only six per
cent of Canada's exports, and it
is only the products which the
west sends out of Canada which
keep the balance of trade at least
in sight, though not in Canada's
favour.
"This proposed idiotic split
Would lead to a lack of confidence in the councils of the
world," he said, remarking on
the power of the country in the
diplomatic field.
MasKenzie summed up by saying, "The alternative to one
Canada is the destruction of the
West, and is the impoverishment
Of the east."
In   rebuttal,   Dick Armstrong
characterized the UBC team as
fulfilling the definition of an
Englishman, which is "a self-
made man who worships his creator."
Derek Frazer, in rebuttal for
UBC, attacked the Manitobo argument that Canada would lose
diplomatic power. Why has Canada's voice been listened to, he
asked. "Because Canada is so
innocuous, Canada isn't going to
hurt anybody."
He said that with two Canadas,
we will be twice as weak, and
will have four times the prestige.
"Canada is a good place to
live," he concluded, "but « divided Canada will be a better
place to live."
All four speakers did their
best to inject wit and humour
into the debate.

The Condemned
The Condemned is probably
one of the most surprising
plays to come out of Middle
Bothnia since the end of the
war. Why conceal the fact? It
deals almost solely with drug
addiction, masochism, and pri-
. son reform. Most surprisingly,
it is set in and about those
purlieus of slumdom, New
York of fifty years from now.
John Starcevitch, the now
well-known author of this
powerful and gripping drama,
said this in his first preface
to the play. "I do not want
to shock and horrify, but I
can't help it. These are the
facts. I don't want to turn this
city into a sink but I cannot
help myself. This is the way
things are. Take any rough-and-
tumble gang of six million, set
them free in those caverns, and
you will get a population of
six million cavemen. Perhaps
the birthrate will increase. That
is the only unforseeable consequence. I am more sanguine
and less hopeful than Mr. Aldous Huxley. He will, if you
please, have no freemartins,
and no soma tablets. Let us
live with our headaches.
Slaughter maybe the more
wasteful method of eliminating
opposition to the world state,
but at the same time, it is more
human. I don't want to run
against the course of human
conduct and behaviour. I
couldn't even if I did want to.
All the machinery of our present governmental system, des-

potic or otherwise, is directed
against persons who would
establish the new Paraguay. So
we must put down idealists,
who are insane anyway, and
make a determined stand for
that cavernous norm of Christianity."
The Condemned stands up to
Starcevitch's resolution to have
nothing to do with those who
would advocate a world in
Which all evil is ignored. His
very theme is evil itself. Perhaps that word should be capitalised EVIL. He saw the
events which he depicts and
was horrified by them, but
there they were; "Afterwards
I remembered them, and put
them on paper. Some maniacs
are as depraved as that, some
policemen as sadistic, and
some prison chaplains even
bigger fools. But not many. I
was unfortunate in my associations."
But what is most important
is that he remembered that he
had been taught a lesson. In
that, he thinks, is the saving
grace of Satan himself, that we
can profit by his example.
'Mark Twain and I both agree
that he must be somewhat of
a genius. If his side of the story
were to be told, we might have
a very different opinion of the
gentleman. Or again, we might
not."
It is very seldom that an
audience is given the opportunity to see a Starcevitch
drama, and even more seldom
that The Condemned is performed. There has frequently
been trouble from pressure
groups who have threatened to close the theatres that
this one act drama has
opened in. S t a re e v i t c h
himself has suffered phy-
'sically and emotionally from
the stress that he has often had
to face. Certainly this week's
presentation at the Question
Mark will be one that will be
remembered by all who see it.
A fine Vancouver cast, ably
backed up by Starcevitch himself, will give a memorable
performance. Local fans will be
pleased to note that C.B.C.
actor Roy Cooper plays the
part of the prison chaplain. Mr.
Cooper has all the dash and
vigour to render his poor
charges into the veritable
wretches that they are. Bill
Sykes and Fagin would have

CRITICISM A
EDITOR:
TOO MANY
Taking as his title a tag-
line from Virgil, Shaw wrote
what was in the eighteen-nine-
ties an anti ■. poetry play.
"Arms and the Man" is a concentrated attack upon Romantic illusion: the illusion that
war is purifying, that heroes
are noble, that there are such
twin entities as "soul-mates,"
and that the Balkan countries
are exciting, mysterious and
glamorous. Poetry, of course,
has come to its senses since
the century's turn: thirty years
later, it led us out of an awful
war into a waste land where
human love languished, sterile,
and heros were de Irop: and
nowadays, as the pendulum
continues to quiver, we often
find it sounding a note of
affirmation of existence, of
of hope for humanity, however
many horrors it may catalogue
in coming to the point. Perhaps
this accounts for Shaw's text
striking one as presenting a
narrow and bigoted view of his
fellow-man. He has a sharp eye
for human foibles, for pinpointing the seamier side of
our psyches for our own amusement: but can he see nothing
else? It is an unfortunate truth
that to attack bigotry often
breeds bigotry on the attacker.
In "Arms and the Man," Shaw
seems so anxious to cast the
mote out of the jaundice eye of
the Great British Public that
he leaves more beam than
twinkle in his own.
War is certainly evil and
mostly sordid, but there is
another side of lie picture:
isolated acts of loyalty, sacrifice and endurance: Shaw will
have us believe that his Swiss
mercenary, Captain Bluntschli,'
presents the definitive account
of "modern" combat in his
cynical first-act conversation
with Raina.
Undoubtedly a. lot of
unctuous bunkum has been uttered on the topic of True Love,
and it is good to hear Shaw's
mocking laughter knocking the

horsehair stuffing out of such
sentimental 'upholstery a s
Raina and the impossible Ser-
gius choose to furnish their
lives with: for we elect the
Danish Modern of mutual need
on which to accouch our loves.
But Shaw promptly substitutes
a mystic marriage of his own
devising—or rather two mystic
marriages, between Bluntschli
and Raina, and Sergius and
Louka. "Mystic" because, although some aspects of mutual
need are fulfilled by these relationships, three of the people
involved are never seen to
have a twinge of sensuality
among them. Louka, the exception, may be able to spark
some answering fire from
Sergius if she works long and
hard enough, but this is hypothetical; all we are shown in
him is a weak strain of sadism
when he bruises her bicep. She
will be good for him in one
way, for her pragmatism will
'prevent his pomposity from
ruhning away with him, just as
Bluntschili's clear - sightedness
will help him lead Raina further out of her mock-romantic
fog, but nowhere do any manifestations of physical desire obtain. Shaw has replaced the obsolete union of twin souls with
the bodiless marriage of true
minds: a singularly bloodless
revolution.
The Balkan background is
earnestly attempted in the
earlier scenes: we are told, for
instance, that a daily toilet is
the exception rather than the
rule; that libraries are rarities,
electric bells novelties; that
admission to the aristocracy is
extraordinarily rapid; in short
that civilized England is vastly preferable to darkest Bulgaria. This achieved, the set
and costumes are left to continue the work of setting the
scene, but, as it is the British
middle-class that Shaw is satirizing, his characters are English suburban rather than Bulgarian  baroque.
And what of these characters? Shaw seems to have believed that he was writing a
serious comedy, but this form
demands real people, and only
that protrait of the author,
Captain Bluntschli, has three
dimensions. The others are personified attitudes, little Peter
Pans of poses, none with the
shadow of a soul. Such flat
characters are often caricatured by actors; and the only safe
and sure method of, portrayal

-marred, by the way, dur-
is louder scenes by a cer-
ireathlessness—could help
:lieve in him.    Nor was
Larry Johns more successful in
his impersonation of Raina's
henpecked father, Major Petkoff. This actor attempted to
capture later middle-age with
a great deal of make-up and a
few shoddy technical tricks, his
favourite being a monotonously
repeated grunt which suggested
not so much advancing years as
the assault of a stomach-punching poltergeist. His wife Catherine was played by Kathy Roberts, an actress of considerable
presence but little restraint.
Miss Roberts has acted with
Holiday Children's Theatre and
this, I believe, has temporarily
spoiled her, for she seemed to
think she was still playing to
children. Her reactions were
false and inflated, her smile
irritatingly fixed, and her acting unsubtle. Tony Churchill
failed to get a scrap of Uriah
Heep into his Nicola, who
should have been a giant pander of Levantine cupidity. The
kindest comment one can make
on his performance is that his
enunciation was first-class.
The musical comedy set,
which complemented so fittingly the style of acting, was designed by Darwin Reid Payne;
the costumes were generally
good and came from Malabars
of Winnipeg and Jessie Richardson of Vancouver. The direction was by Dorothy Somerset and this lady must bear the
brunt of the blame for the
breakdown of this production.
The excessive movement was
largely due to sheer bad blocking. Why did Sergius fold his
arms and raise his eyebrows at
the audience rather than at
Bluntschli when challenging
the latter to a duel? Why
couldn't Raina sit on Catherine's line "And so you're no
longer a soldier, Sergius," instead of the awkward silence
which allows the pace to drop?
Why did Sergius have to route-
march upstage to the bay-window to deliver, bathed in pink
light, a short speech on soldiering? And why couldn't
Raina have been told during rehearsals not to fidget? And so
on.
The travestied characterizations perhaps went unnoticed
by the director due to her
standing too close to the actors.
It was a pity. Shaw manufactures many of his characters
in order to cock a snook at
them, often with hilarious results; but when the actors
themselves begin to thumb
their noses, it is a case of too
many snooks spoiling the
Shavian broth.

Mr. Aho is pleased to announce
that due to the unprecedented
demand for RAVEN, he is considering printing again before
May, and will be pleased to receive manuscripts at the RAVEN
office.
He stood beneath the awning, watching the shoppers
push through the store doors,
seeing them open thier umbrellas against the steady rain that
fell onto the canvas above him,
and then ran to the muddy
pavement at his feet. The
shoppers turned away from the
doors, then, finding him before them, they moved aside
to avoid his rags, and left a
little, damp space about him.
At the corner, the Salvation
Army band played cheerfully
to the men and women gathered in the evening darkness beyond them, and across the street
a hoarse-voiced gospeller ran
a biblically vituperative competition with the band. A police
man stood behind the gospeller,
watching the crowds, unseen
in the late evening shopping
rush. The ever changing neon
lights mixed their colors in the
wet streets, and the water running down to the drains carried the over-all muddied redness away with it. Traffic lights
flashed green and red, and a
constable, quite ignoring them,
sent the wet, shining cars
along at his own pleasure.
The old man beneath the
awning hugged his charity coat
closer about him, and peered
into the crowds.
"Gotta a dime" he called.
"Gotta dime?"
A silver and gossamer doll
in the window at his back
stood poised on one leg, pointing the other behind her, and
waved her wand above the
old man as though to change
him to another Moses. A little
girl pointed to the doll and
cried "Ooh. Look," but her
mother seized her arm and
dragged her away.
"Leave the old man alone,"
she said, and they were gone
with the crowd.
"Come to Jesus. Come to
Jesus," sang the Salvation
Armjy band.
"You shall burn in hell," res-
.   ponded the gospeller, but the
rain doused most  of his fire.
"Switch your lights on,"
shouted the policeman.
"Bloody murder," shrieked a
little newsboy, huddled over
his papers to protect them from
the rain.
The old man called dully to
the crowds, "Gootta dime? Gotta dime?"

Modern Science and Christian Faith: Scripture Press
Book Division, 434 S. Wabash
Ave. Chicago 5 111. A symposium by 12 members of the
American Scientific Affiliation.
(SOI pages plus biographical
notes and index.) This book
"represents the concerted efforts of several score men of
science over a period of more
than six years. "The combined
than six years." The combined
commonality.
Its   aim   is   to   demonstrate
two points, as its preface says:
"1.   Between the   observations
of   science   and   a   simple
direct interpretation of the
Bible  narrative there
exists a harmony such as
would   be  expected   of   a
Book    having    the    same
Author    as   the    physical
world.
"2.   There   is   an   appreciable
group of reputable men of
science who are convinced
of  the  inspired  origin   of
the Bible and who find in
it a stimulating, satisfying
and   irreplaceable   contribution   to  their   scientific
picture of the universe."
Ten fields of science are examined in  this  demonstration
by   the   symposium.   Each   is
handled by a noteworthy leader
in his field. One is a Canadian,
who before retirement was the
head   of  the   Department   of
Physics  at   the   University of
Manitoba, Frank Allen, Ph.D.,
L.L.D., F.R.S.C.
Prof. Allen's section "The
Witness of Physical Science to
the Bible," is the last and
pithiest chapter in the symposium. His contribution appeals to this reviewer's iconoclastic nature more than some
of the others for he states his
convictions and their bases
without any mincing understatement.
"The process of separation
of the ordered world of nature
from a creating, and ultimately
directing Deity," Dr. Allen
writes, "has be sedulously
prosecuted in modern science
by some of its exponents until
it is often made to appear that
the universe does not now require, nor has it at any time
needed, a creating God. It is
the purpose of this essay to indicate that such a hypothesis
of unbelief is contrary to principles of physics."
"Four solutions of the problem of the origin of the universe may be proposed:" he
says, "first, the universe is an
illusion; second, that it spontaneously arose out of nothing;
third that it had no origin but
has existed eternally; fourtn,
that it was created." His hard-
headed factual examination of
each will be refreshing to any
reader tired of the ethereal
sophistry of modern philosophy, and hungry for solid truth
instead of confusion and pointless argument.
The solid scholarship of his
essay is enlivened by a pene
trating wit and irony that must
have made him a fascinating
lecturer at U. of M. Anyone
missing this chapter (or most
of the others) of this book is
omitting a stimulating and
profoundly valuable part from
his university experience.
Eight other chapters of the
book deal with the witness of
particular sciences to the
truth of the Bible; and one has
the general title "A Christian
Interpretation     of     Science."
This latter, by Roger J.
Voskuyl, poses the question
whether one cannot keep faith
and science in separate mental
compartments. But, he says,
"Such a dual concept . . .
does not lead to harmonious
thinking." He cites the Uranium
clock and ~ the second law of
thermodynamics to show the
universe must have had a beginning.
He quotes Prof. A. H. Cornp*
ton Chancellor of Washington
University:" "For myself, faith
begins- with the realization
that a supreme intelligence
brought the universe into being and created man. It is not
difficult for me to have this
faith, for it is incontrovertible
that where there is a plan there
is an intelligence-an orderly,
unfolding, universe testifies to
the truth of the most majestic
statement ever uttered: "In the
beginning God."
Chapter II, by Peter W.
Sto'ner, entitled "Astronomy
and the First Chapter of
Genesis," is as breathtaking in
scope as is that magnificent
science itself. Sub-chapter headings give a clue: The Time .of
Beginning, Age of the Earth,
Age of the Moon, Age of
Meteorites, Age of the Galaxies,
The Creation, The Earth from
•a Diffuse Nebula. These are
dealt with scientifically, but
all point to one conclusion:
'Thirty years ago there were
serious discrepancies between
Genesis and astronomy. Today
there is striking agreement . . .
Although Genesis was written
thousands of years ago, every
reference to astronomy in this
first chapter is corroborated by
the best of our present scientific information . . . yet . . .
books of astronomy written 25
years ago are full of serious
errors, and anything written
more than a few hundred years
ago would be only . . . entertainment ..."
The other chapters: Geology
and the Bible (based on a quite
legitimate interpretation of
Hebrew, he suggests a fascinating co-relation between
the "days" of the creation narrative and the periods of Geologic time) Biology and Creation, A Christian View of An
thropology, The Relation" of
Archaeology to the Bible, Medical Science and the Bible, The
Bible and Chemical Knwledge,
and an especially pungent
chapter by a psychiatrist, on
Psychology, will be reviewed
next issue of this page.

Birds Squeeze
Past Alberta
By MIKE HUNTER
(Ubyssey Sports Writer)
UBC Thunderbirds squeezed out two weekend victories
over the University of Alberta Golden Bears to run their
WCIAU win streak to six straight.
Jack Pomfret's Birds overcame early difficulties to edge
the Bears 53-50 Friday and 53-35 Saturday, in Edmonton.  •
The Birds had trouble with what seemed to be a lighter
ball, and were further hindered by the tremendous hustle of
the Alberta crew. In the first half of Friday's game, the Birds
consistently overshot the basket. Coach Pomfret said that at one
point the Birds' inaccuracy had their own bench roaring with
laughter. "But we got hold of some balls at half time and shot
them around."
But he wasn't giving many excuses. "Our shooting was just
off," he said. The Birds hit only 22 of 90 field goal attempts
Friday. But the main difficulty was the spirited hustle of Alberta.
"The second they lost the ball, the five of them turned and
raced back into that zone," said Pomfret. And that zone was
tight. Birds had to rely on their outside shooting both nights.
Ken Winslade turned in another steady performance, leading
the scorers both nights with 19 and 14 points. Norris Martin
got a total of 18 points, and Ed Pederson pumped in 19. Pomfret
lauded Pederson's performance in the games. Alberta's tight-zone
clogged up the middle and resulted in some crowd-pleasing
rough-housing under the basket. Pederson, who seems to enjoy
it when things get rough, grabbed many rebounds in addition
to scoring well.
The Alberta team's tenacious checking under the basket
forced the Birds to tip the rebounds back, instead of grabbing
them. The tight zone also forced the Birds to shoot from the
outside.
FRIDAY CLOSE
In Saturday's game, about 700 fans saw the Bears jump into
an early lead, but UBC recovered and led 12-11 at quarter-time.
They increased their margin to 23-13 at the half, and led by
13 at three-quarter time. The Birds gave Alberta a bit of their
own medicine, holding the Bears to 35 points, and forcing them
to shoot from a distance.
In other WCIAU action over the weekend, the Saskatchewan
Huskies won their first game, dumping the favored Manitoba
Bisons 57-52 in Saskatoon. Manitoba got even on Saturday, however, licking the Huskies 71-61.
•t* V *r
On the Inter-city basketball scene, an interesting situation
is shaping up. Alberni has clinched first place and has finished
their schedule. Now, Deitrich-Collins and Cloverleafs are tied
for second with twelve points. These two teams meet in the
first game of a doubleheader at 7 tonight at Churchill gym.
In the second game; UBC Thunderbirds meet the last-place
Eilers. The way Eilers and Birds have been playing the Birds
should win handily. If this occurs, the Birds would be tied with
the loser of the Collins-Leafs game for third place, and a playoff
would be necessary. This playoff would be very important for
the Birds, because the fourth-place finisher must journey to
Alberni to play the red-hot Athletics in a semi-final.
NfiXT GAMES
The Birds, of course, would much rather play either Deitrich-
Collins or Cloverleafs, both of whom they have already beaten
this season. And if this playoff is necessary, it would mean that
the Birds would be playing five games in seven nights.
The Birds have already played about 26 games, which is
what they played all last season. And there could be 10 or 20
more games to come if they win.
WINSLADE ALL-STAR
Also on the Inter-city front, an All-Star Team has been
announced by a downtown paper. Birds Ken Winslade was a
unanimous choice for one guard slot. Norris Martin and Barry
Drummond were named to  the second team.
This Friday and Saturday night, the Birds entertain the
Alberta team here at UBC. Friday's game will feature a cheering
contest between Fort and Acadia Camps.
And don't forget the big doubleheader tonight at the Churchill Gym, 51st and Heather. The evening should provide the best
exhibition of Senior A basketball yet this year.

Synchronized
Swimming
Places Third
Basketball is a fast thrilling
game.
The contact sports—football,
rugger, hockey, etc. provide
bruising, exciting contests and
draw larije audiences.
But if, you prefer the beautiful
to the thrilling or the exciting,
you have to go to the water.
There was plenty of beauty
at Crystal Pool Saturday afternoon and evening: beauty of
contestant and beauty of contest
as Vancouver and 'New Westminster girls got together for
the B.C. Sychronized Swimming
Championships.
And five girls from this university were there.
These five swam their way to
third place in the team event
behind veteran groups from the
YWCA anod the New Westminster Kah-Mi S.S.C.
And only one of the team
members, Heather Smith, had
swum before in competition.
The UBC team w,as coached by
Mrs. Diane Black who swam
against them for the winning
YWCA team.
The four others showed their
Style in the afternoon's competition of Novice Strokes and
Figures In a field of 28, Marilyn
Thompson, Beth Moore, Nancy
Bartlett and Susan Crone came
respectively second, third, fifth
and sixth.
First half goals by Harley
Schindell, Frank Harrop, and
Tony Tuttis provided Varsity
with this significant triumph
over the first place United  11.
Coach Frank Kuruc picked
out tall right fullback Keith
Watson and goalie Don Celle as
outstanding Varsity competitors
in this contest.
For the opening 45 minutes,
the winners' forward line
showed lots of drive and finish.
Although the effects of their
prolonged layoff from league
play caught up with the out-
of-shape university team in the
second half, Varsity guttily held
off North Shore's late attacks
to earn the win.
Bad news, however, hit Varsity hard in the serious shoulder
injury sustained by Frank Iaoo-
bucci. According to Kuruc,
Frank may be sidelined for from
three to four weeks.
