By MAURY SOWARD
•   ONE OF THE MOST persistent rumours around the
campus in the last few weeks has been that a bursary
dedicated to the memory of the late George Pringle and to
be called the George Pringle Bursary would be set up.
That rumor haa become a fact       ________________________________
and it ia now possible to announce
the details of the bursary, but before giving these details, first a
few facts about the character of
one of the finest men ever to be
graduated from this university,
about whom, unfortunately, many
present UBC students know very
little.
F.O. George Robert Pringle, killed in the line of duty last January
24, in the words of Dr. Frank Dickson, who probably knew him better than any other man now at the
University of British Columbia,
was, "One of the most outstanding
men in the University from the
viewpoint of character. No man
was more looked up to. George
lived a life of helpfulness to his
fellow creatures."
Proceeding further and going on
to discuss the reasons behind the
formation of the bursary, Dr. Dickson says, "Could he (Oeorge Pringle) express a wish in this matter,
it would undoubtedly be that he
might continue to render suoh
worthwhile assistance. A number
of his local associates have conceived the idea of providing an endowed Bursary at the University
of British Columbia which would
continue in perpetuity and would
be awarded annually to a student
who exhibits as nearly as possible
the same high character attributes
as those so evident in our departed
friend."
It is expected that a UBC subcommittee will be organized soon,
doubtless under the direction of
Lynn Sully. To aid the Pringle
Bursary fund, there will probably
ba a basketball game and maybe a
Pep Meet.
Until the UBC sub-committee has
been organized, students wishing
to do so, may give their donations
to the Pringle Bursary Fund at the
Publication Board office.
SPONTANEOUS DEMAND
The Bursary which Dr. Dickson
describes wm, and it cannot bo
stressed too strongly, decided on as
a result of the spontaneous demand
developed among Ids many friends
and admirers that such a Bursary
bo sot up. Those associates of his
are from largely OUTSIDE tho
University and it Is they and NOT
the University who have assumed
the responsibility for raising tho
funds for the Bursary.
The Universary could not take
responsibility for raising tho funds
of tho Bursary because, as Dr.
Dickson pointed out, since there are
several hundred University graduates in the armed services, tho
University could not accept the responsibility of sotting up a memorial Bursary for ono graduate
killed in action without setting up
similar memorial Bursaries for all
graduate students killed In action,
and that, of course, would be impossible.
Plans drawn up for "The F.O.
Oeorge Robert Pringle Memorial
Bursary" call for the sum of $8,300
to be raised as soon as possible,
meaning within the next two
weeks. The interest from this sum
would amount to approximately
8250 annually.
LEADERSHIP NEEDED
This interest would be the sum
total of the Bursary which would
be awarded annually to some student who has completed his Third
Year and ls proceeding to his
Fourth Year. A student, to be eligible for this award must show
evidence of academic ability, sound
unselfish character and active 'leadership and participation in UBC
athletics.
To organize the task of collecting
the money needed for the Oeorge
Pringle Bursary, a Central Committee has been set up and along
with it a great many sub-committees which will each have charge
ot a district
The Central Committee, which
will meet this evening" at the Hotel
Qrosvenor, consists of: tho University Men's Athletic Diroctorato
(Or. Dickson, Mr. M. L. Van VUet,
Dr. Cameron, Lynn Sully, Charlie
Long, Harry Franklin), Ron Andrews and Ted Baynes representing the Alumni, Chuck Jones and
Mert Gordon representing basketball (at which sport Oeorge Pringle was an outstanding guard),
Ruth Wilson (also representing the
Alumni and a member of the
girls' team which Oeorge Pringle
coached), Mack Buck (a member
of the DU fraternity In which
Oeorge was member), Rann Math-
ison, member from New Westminster, and a large number of George
Prlngle's friends In the interior.
Mus. Soccers
Broadcast
Sunday Eve.
•   SO NOW it's set for Sunday!
t
The Musical Society music-makers, in the nildst of
their "Pirates" throes, were
originally scheduled for a
Friday evening radio broadcast, over CJOR, previewing
the Gilbert and Sullivan
opus for radio listener!. Then,
came the closing of the auditorium for Mus Soc rehearsals, and the other symptoms
of organized chaos that accompany a big stage production.
Radio plans were upset, too, and
won further complicated by th*
fact that a couple of gentlemen
named Beau Jack and Fritzie Zlvio
are embroiled In a brawl tonight
and CJOR ls contracted to carry
such goings-on. So, instead of
listening to th* Mus Soc tonight,
listen to tho Jack-Zivic fight . .
BUT on Sunday evening, CJOR's
regular Symphonic Hour has bwn
turned over to th* University singers. Th* program runs from 8:00
to 7:00 on Sunday evening, and
the top show people in th* Mus
Soc will be on hand.
Frances McLean, Cecil Cameron,
Irene Kennedy ,Bob Mcellan and
others who have appeared on
previous CJOR Varsity program
have the leads in the "Pirates"
and will be stamping on *■—ntr*
ground. So remember—now it's
Sunday!
In the meantime ,the cast of th*
regular Saturday evening "Vanity
Time" show, aired over CKWX at
6:15, are back on the job after a
lay-off last week. The show was
cancelled because Radio Society
members ran off to their assorted
out-of-town homes over the holiday.
Something new has been added,
too—"Varsity Tune" has a new
theme. "Hail, UBC," originally recorded by Mart Kenny, has been
honorably retired from actlv*
participation, in favor of a new,
scratch-free commercial disc. Th*
new one is a Goldman march,
called appropriately enough
"On the Mall." All of which adds
up to a heavy week-end for radio.
Players Club
Postponing
Skit, Again
• IN SPITE of very good intentions, the Player's Club is
once more forced to postpone its
presentation* of "Guthrie Meek In
the Army," or "He's E2 In the
Army, but He's Al in My Heart.'
The skit, a Jabez masterpiece,
was announced and prepared prev-
laus to Varsity's enforced holiday, but with the closing of the
Auditorium until further noUce,
no date for the presentation of the
skit can be given.

J* THE  UBYSSEY
Friday, February 5, 1943
•    From The Editor's Pen » » »
40 Beers
For next Tuesday's issue we are turning over the editorial and news work to the
mighty men of Science, who will produce
issue number 27. Leading the red-shirt
journalists will be none other than the remarkable Mr. Backman, and to Bill and his
associates we would like to extend a hearty
welcome, and to thank them for the holiday
which we get when they take over.
In days of yore Sciencemen were taken
to be rather rough and uncouth individuals,
coarse fellows who spoke in roaring voices,
frightened women, drank El Stuffo, never
read-anything but technical magazines, and
emerged from the confines of the App.
Science building only to remove trousers
from unwary Artsmen. Those days'friends
have gone, we hope, forever.
Two things came about which have
changed the entire picture. First among
these was the introduction of an English
course which was calculated to teach the
technical men English as she is spoke (and
written). The second was a personality rather than an event, we refer again to our boy
Bill Backman.
As to the English course, taught by
Professor Morrison we feel a personal attachment. In one of our early editorials we
split an infinitive. We have split them before and will undoubtedly split them again.
Professor Morrison, however, was not content to pass it over with a shrug. Rather
he used it to demonstrate faulty English to
his merry students, and now we find that
many of our second year Science lads read
our editorials merely to find grammatical
errors (a pursuit, so they delight in telling
us, which is very fruitful and negatively instructive) thus providing us with some
readers.
The business of having to take English
was met with suspicion by most of the diehard Science lads, and they fought it in their
own manner for some years. Time, and we
suspect the perseverance of Professor Morrison, took care of the obstacles and now the
once-dubious students are true supporters
of English 3. They gleefully inform us that
all reporters should be forced to take it,
then the UBYSSEY would conform to the
high standards of grammar set by the
Science readers.
In this case we would like to illustrate
by using the case of Mr. Ed. Benson, a
Science stalwart from away back. When we
first knew Ed he was one of the most charming illiterates (not to mention a darn fine
fellow) we ever knew, now he has taken to
multi-syllable words and text-book correct
English, with the result we are always on
our guard in his presence and we generally
carry a concealed dictionary, so that we can
maintain the honor of the Arts faculty. Mr.
Benson, they tell us, is just typical of the
NEW ENGINEER.
The Backman case is sensational, it is
unprecedented, but it is true and we should
expect it to be stranger than fiction.
Backman is a Forestry Student, which
qualifies him as an engineer, and as such it
is taken for granted that he would not be
active on the campus. But, as Jabez once
said in awed tones, Backman can read! Back-
man can write! And we might add, Backman
can argue! So alone, but definitely not bewildered, Big Bad Bill set out to pioneer
the Science trail in the great campus beyond.
Scarce an AMS meeting went by without the audience being thrilled or chilled
by the scathing Mr. B. He entered the Parliamentary Forum and crushed genteel Arts-
men with his power of expression. Of course
the art of expression which he gained in
years at logging camps is another joyful
talent of Arvid's (he should play golf) but
it is strictly for Men Only. Mr. Backman
entered the Publications Board and rose to
the rank of Senior Editor, his greatest a-
chievement, from which heights he scared
the-daylights out of cub reporters and disgruntled subscribers. Then "Willy the Boy
Wonder", culminated his career by becoming Treasurer of the Student Council. It is
said that he found time for the latter job
when at least half the Engineers learned
how to read. It was no longer necessary for
Bill to spend his Tuesdays and Fridays reading the UBYSSEY to an open-mouthed
group gathered in the common room.
The movement is spreading. We find
more Sciencemen on the Pub, in the Players'
Club, the Parliamentary Forum and a host
of other campus organizations. New worlds
are beng opened, trails are being blazed and
who knows what next? The next, president
of the Letters Club may be a Scienceman.
Next Wednesday the hard working sons
of El Stuffo will toss their annual ball and
as usual it should be a highlight of the social
calendar. If you are fortunate enough to
be there look for the 1943 model of homo
Science, neat, polite, well-informed, honest,
charming, a master of the King's English.
AND SO IS HITLER!

Dear Bob:
I am in reqeipt today of your letter of
sometime inst., and I should like you to
know that it has proved a wonderful counter-irritant to a laundry bill for eighty cents
(80c) also received today. The latter was
proffered by an oriental individual when I
attempted to leave his establishment with
my laundry, and I can describe his attitude
only as being blatantly commercial. In a
masterful display of self-control, I tried to
show him arithmetically exactly why it
would be impossible for me to live for the
next week in the manner to which I was accustomed, viz., to the accompaniment of food,
if I paid him the eighty cents. Whereupon
he proceeded to show me, by rneans of a
short hatchet produced from beneath the
counter, just why it would be impossible
for me to live in any manner whatever if I
didn't pay him the eighty cents. Although I
was legally entitled to an argument in rebuttal, my every instinct rebelled against
creating a scene. Insouciantly, I tossed
eighty cents onto the counter, a flurry of
nickels and pennies.
"I suppose you ARE Chinese?" I sneered, the implication being that his attitude
reeked of Japanese imperialism.
"You go now," he replied, evading my
question and continuing to brandish the
hatchet in a fashion that was in no respect
redolent of southern hospitality. "Me belong
to tongs."
'"You belong to what?"
"Tongs, tongs."
"Don't mention it!" I riposted neatly.
"Any time at all, any time at all."
With that, and my laundry, I minced
out of his tastelessly appointed premises, returning "home"* to find your letter lying
on my Persian rug. I don't know who the
Persian is, but I must admit that he does
make a good rug, having been run over by
a British tank and sent out here in exchange
for a crate of B.C. apples. Heavily bearded,
ho provides a fine thick pile into which I can
sink my feet, often sinking them right up to
my hips, as he serves to conceal a hole in
the ceiling of the room below.
Not that I mind living in a boarding
house, you understand. Serving in a war
which will see the survival of the fittest, I
could find no better training ground than a
boarding house dining room or salle de
guerre. It requires years of patient apprenticeship, nerves of steel, and a bull-dog determination to get in to dinner first, and
still have enough teeth left with which to
eat it.
The dining room is kept in impeccable
order, though, with fresh sawdust sprinkled
on the floor every day and the bodies of the
less fortunate tenants stacked neatly in the
corner. On the walls are a number of remarkably fine trophies,* including a moose-
head on one side, with the inscription, "Shot
At Mud River", while on the opposite wall
hangs a well-preserved tenant-head, with
the inscription, "Shot at Taking The Third
Lump of Sugar".
On a table at the end of the room,
under a green light, sits a fat jar containing
a pickled human brain. Whenever a tenant
falls behind in, his rent, she makes a point
of removing the pickled brain during lunch,
and serving the tenant boiled cabbage for
dinner.
As I have been here only two weeks,
I have yet not eaten enough food to know
whether she is a good cook or not. I do
know, however, that she has her specialty,
something which she never tires of our eating, and that is canned peaches. In this life
of uncertainties, we can cling to the knowledge that we shall always be having canned peaches for dessert. The woman is a
positive wizard with the can-opener.
Then there are, of course, those occasions when she favours us with a special
treat, such as canned pears. We always know
when it is a special treat because a neon
sign lights up above the kitchen door, reading "Special Treat! Special Treat! Special
Treat!", while a bell clangs and a little man
passes amongst us with a paper to sign.
The landlady is rather fussy, however,

• FIRST let us say that it
is not my intention to
try to dissuade any aspiring
co-ed from running for the
office of president of the
Alma Mater Society. On the
contrary, she would receive
my respect and admiration.
For a woman, to contend for the
most important position on the
campus, must have a great deal
ot courage and confidence in her
own* ability. To be the first woman nominated, to break a tradition of years standing, requires
even more.
Not only must she possess these
qualifications, but also all those
others which are necessary.in filling the position of president, such
as initiative, the ability of maintaining control, foresight, and so
on. One other which is perhaps
of minor Importance is that she be
a good speaker. That ability Is
one which is seldom found amon,j
women either because of lack of
interest or lack of   training.
• THE   FACT   THAT   women
have this year  been    elected
class presidents shows that the
students realize the uncertainty
of the men's position at the university in these days of war, and
that they acknowledge the capabilities of the feminine members
of the Alma Mater Society. How-
•ver, there ls a vast difference hi
the requirements of president of
the Student Council nnd that of
a year's class.
Women, in dealing with women
and women's business have proven
capable and successful, as past
generations of WUS and Phrateres
presidents prove. Whether they'
would be able to carry on the
business of the whole student
body as well is a matter of conjecture and doubt on the part of
the majority of student? now.
e I BELIEVE there are many
co-eds who would serve as
well as a man, had they the courage to assert themselves. The trouble is, that girls have not had the
opportunity to gain the necessary
experience in previous years. And
that lack of experience, or lack
assumed by the electors, is what
wil be the major obstacle in her
campaign.
Women have entered political
elections in public life and have
not been very successful because
they cannot Inspire confidence In
the electoral body as a man can.
Why, I don't know. Maybe its a
relic of the days when n woman's
place was In the home, and not
buckling rivets at Boeing's.
An argument In favor of a women   president,   besides   the   fact

(Continued from Next Column)
that she is not so eagerly sought
after by the government as are
men, is that she would probably
have a lighter time-table than a
man. Assuming, that is, that there
will be few senior clasr Arts
men returning to the 1943-1944
session, as it would appear now
For a woman to take over such
a job In peace-time would be difficult, but to attempt lt now whll?
the country is at war is doubly
so. She would have to deal with
military authorities on subjects
which few women know little
about, as well as to regulate the
university proceedings under always uncertain circumstances.
If a woman is nominated for the
office, I offer her my hearty congratulations, and while I shall not
guarantee her my vote simply because she Is a woman, I shall consider her platform and her qualifications before I should cast my
ballot against her for the same
reason.

Penny Fund In Aid Of
Red Cross Starts Feb. 16
'•   THE PENNY DRIVE, originally scheduled for this week
has now been set by the War Aid Council to run for five
days, from February 16 to February 20.
The purpose of the drive is To       ________________________________
raise sufficient funds to complete
the Ambulance Drive quota,
which was left unfinished hi the
fall term because of the apathy
of the students and the pressure
of examinations upon them.
It ls estimated that at least $450
must be raised in order to fulfil
the committments mada by the
War Aid Council for the fall term
This must be done before the
Council Is free to go on with further projects for the spring term,
which is already half finished.
QUAD CHALKED
In order to keep the drive near
th* centre of interest of the campus, i.e. the caf, the committee is
planning to chalk the names of
the faculties in the Quad. Tho
students of each Undergrad Society must cover the name ot their
faculty with pennies. The area
to be covered by each group will
be in proportion to the number of
people registered in the faculty.
It Is hoped that the spirit ot inter-faculty competition will be
aroused. The Engineers may btj
depended upon to do their share,
but it is very doubtful if the Arts-
men will do the same. The small
fracasses of the fall term have
been taken as an indication that
the Arts Undergrad may be stronger than in previous years and
show some resistance to the aggressive Engineers,     Die "Fifty-
Five" has given its assurance that
the Artsmen will come through,
but the committee Is very sceptical
upon some results besides do-
panting parties are to be seen.
Arrangements are being made to
have the dean of each faculty put
up a small sum of money to be
turned over to the Drive when
his faculty has completed Its part
of th* drive. ' J'f|
SUGGESTIONS NEEDED
Anyone who has a practical idea
that may be used in the Drive
are asked to get in touch with thc
committee chairman or the representative of their faculty. The
raffle and the "skin game" were
very successful last year .but as
yet nothing has been planned
along this line. Here is an excellent opportunity for some enterprising person to eld this
worthy cause.
The committee ls headed by
Harry Curran, Gordon Rogers,
Jim Morton, Hugh Hall and Doug
Haggart, represent Science, Art*,
Commerce, and Aggie, r-spc-
tlvely.

Queens U.
Speeds Up
Graduation
• TORONTO, Feb. 3 —
(CUP)—Arts Courses at
Queens University are to be
accelerated, according to a
recent ruling by the Faculty
of Arts. The ruling will not
lessen the amount of work
required, but will enable students to graduate earlier.
Under the new ruling students
lacking three subjects for a degree this May will be able to
graduate this autumn. Similarly,
students who have 10 courses towards a degree this May will be
able, by taking courses during the
summer months, to graduate in
the fall of 1944 instead of the
spring of 1945.
An informal survey conducted
by the Toronto Varsity found that
all members of the staff of thj
University of Toronto were united in opposition to any such home
at Toronto.
Studenti and professors alike
thought that vacations were necessary for most student* to earn
their fees, and that If thc courses,
ordinarily quite extensive, were
extended over the holidays "brain
fag" might result.
No other universities in Canada
have as yet adopted a similar ruling to Queen's.
Job Bureau Asked For
Snow And Furniture Movers
By MARION DUNDAS
•   COME SNOW, EXAMS, and holidays the University
Employment Bureau's work, like a woman's is never
done.
The recent cold snap found the       _____________________________
Bureau right up on its toes when,
on the last day before the University was closed, emergency calls
swamped in from the B.C. Electric
and the city for one hundred students to shovel snow off sidewalks
and keep car lines free from Ice.
Approximately forty boys volunteered and most were put to work.
However, the Bureau wants it
known that some of the prospective snow-shovelers were turned
away because of a misunderstanding at the Selective Service office
over which the Bureau had no
control.
Additional calls came in for
brawny boys to move woodpiles
and one woman requested a well-
mannered boy to move furniture.
At the present time there is a
demand for solicitors with good
sales appeal but as yet there are
few openings in jobs for the sixty
girls and one hundred thirty-five
boys registered for part-time work.
During the inauguration of the
Bureau in October letters were
sent to sixty Arms but response
was somewhat unsatisfactory.
"Vancouver firms are co-operative but naturally reluctant to employ part-time workers when they
can still obtain all the full-time
men and women employees they
need," explained Bob Whyte, head
of the Bureau. "Seattle students
have no difficulty whatsoever hi
obtaining part-time work," he
added.
The Bureau is confident of a
greater request for student-workers in the spring due to increased
manpower shortage. Meanwhile
special effort is being made to
place the students registered. The
Bureau also plans to advertise in
the financial pages of downtown
newspapers to gain wider recognition both among students and
business firms. Several ex-students
have already written asking for
part-time jobs including disgruntl-
-ed ex-students now at Vernon.
Details regarding Summer work,
although indefinite, may be obtained at the Bureau. It will be open
on Monday from 12:30 to 1:30. Students may obtain information after
hours by phoning KErr. 4207L or
ALma 0885R.

rooms at night. In fact, she frisks us for
jills every time we come in, and as I am
quite ticklish, this form of enquiry evokes
roars of laughter from we,
This, of course, tips off the rest of the
tenants to the fact that I have come in,
whereupon they all race for the bathroom,
making me wait outside with my kidneys
barking until they have had their fun.
Well, Bob, as you doubtless know, I am
now in Calgary, as in Alberta. A festival
was held recently at home, in celebration of
my second anniversary away from home. I
was desolated at being unable to be present,
if only long enough to spit spitefully into the
punch.
My first month and a half with the
RCAF was spent in Toronto, a city in Eastern Canada, whose population is swelling
daily, owing to the RCAF. (Owing to the
number of men posted there, I mean. Ha
Ha. Ahem). Toronto is a rather quiet city,
with the silence disturbed only by the gentle
rustle of growing bank accounts. The city
is teeming with Big Executives, who are
easily recognizable owing to their bowler
hats. Unfortunately, there are a small number of little executives who also wear bowler
hats so that they will look like Big Executives, and since they all have to ride on the
street car, owing to gas rationing, the situation becomes confused. The Big Executives
have retaliated by smoking expensive cigars
on all possible occasions, blowing their superior smoke into the faces of everyone they
meet, in an effort to counteract the meanness of the little executives. The Little executives are attempting to counter this
counterattack by having "No Smoking"
signs placed in as many places as possible,
including their offices. The picture is, as you
can see, complex.

Both Inter A's In Playoffs
Frosh And UBC   No Coke winners
l„d*A2.Fourth I" PJw*° Quiz Test
In V. & D. League
By MAURY SOWARD
• VARSITY'S INTER A TEAM gave promise of things to
come in the forthcoming playoffs last Wednesday at King
Ed gym when they threw a real scare into Ted Milton's unbeaten Higbies quintet. The final score (38-31 for Higbies)
was not a true indication of the closeness of the battle for the
major part of the contest.
Coach Demetrle Elefthery \s
charges were really out to
make a nam* for themselves and
they certainly went about it tho
right way. Strengthened by 6' 5"
Ches Pedersen and ex-Calder Pat
Campbell, the Inter A's started off
strong and swept to an 11-5 lead
In the first quarter.
HIGBIES ALARMED
Higbies, getting somewhat
alarmed at the prospect of havinij
tkefar record winning streak shattered In their last game of the
season, played heads-up ball in
the second quarter and succeeded
In shortening the Varsity lead bv
three points to make the half-
time count 17-15 for the Thunderbirds.
It wasn't till late in the third
quarter that Higbies took the lead
for the first time, 29-27.
In the last session, th* men of
Milton were no better than th*y
were throughout the rest of the
game, but they played good, sound
ball and took advantage of th*
many breaks which the over-anxious students threw their way,
pumping in nine points to Van.
ity's four to end the game on tho
long end of a 38-31 score.
THREE ON PEDERSEN
Varsity was the victim of a piece
of hard luck when, midway
through the first quarter, big
Ches Pedersen, their star centre
had three highly doubtful fouls
fouls called against him by rookl*

referee. Ber, Lowe. Coach Elefthery thought it expedient to yank
him and as a result, Higbies were
able to gain five points on the
Pederjen-less Varsity boy3 until
he came back at the start of the
second half. By that time, Milton's boys seemed to hav* recovered their confidence and they
played on even terms and better
for the balance of the game.
Bud McLeod played his best game
of the season for Varsity and was
well supported by his team-mate3,
Bill Hooson, Don Mann, Pete Mc-
Oeer, Jim Bryant, and the aforementioned Messrs. Pedersen and
Campbell. "Ish" Lynn led Higbies
with seventeen points.
VARSITY FINISHED
At present ,the two UBC Inter
A teams are in a rather unusual
situation. UBC, after winning
their game against Frosh are now
tied with Varsity for third place.
However, Frosh have one more
game to play .against the last
place Sparlings team. Verslty has
finished its schedule and it woulJ
seem that the first-year boys stand
in a fair way to finish the season
in undisputed possession of third
place.
Coach Art Johnson's boys, however, are not very fussy about
finishing In third place, all by
their lonesome, because such a
manoeuvre would mean that they
would be facing the first-place
Higbies' team in the playoffs
while Varsity take on the much-
weaker outfit from New Westminster, known as "Gregory-Price.
It is highly conceivable, therefore,
that the Frosh, by generous use
of their second string, may lose
to Sparlings, leaving them still
tied with Varsity for third.
If this happens, Inter A President, Joe Hall, states that the tie
will be decided by the toss of a
coin. Joe, who is nobody's fool,
Is taking no chances on a sudden-
death play-off between Varsltv
and Frosh stinking out his gym,
with both teams trying their level
best NOT to win.
Hedlunds
Stop Co-eds
68 To 27
• WEDNESDAY NIGHT Varsity women's basketball team
suffered its third setback of the
season to the highly touted Hed-
lund's quintette. At least the coeds have one consolation hi their
defeat. TTiey were the first team
to score more than twenty points
against them, scoring twenty-
seven to sixty-eight.
Varsity started out well, scoring
the first points of the game on a
basket by Pauline Greer. Hedlunds, however, began to find
range and the score at the quarter was 19-10 for Hedlunds.
MID-FLOOR PLAY
In the next quarter the play
was mainly In mid-floor, but both
teams took time off to score four
points apiece, bringing the score
at the half to 23-14.
Varsity began to fall apart at
the seams In the third quarter as
• WELL, ALL THAT I can say is that I have a poor group
of readers. Yes, after going to all the trouble of making
up a gigantic photo-quiz contest, not one answer was sent
in. And with a grand prize of a case of coke to the winner,
too. My, I'm disgusted. That means that I will have to drink
the whole case of coke by myself (it says here).
But perhaps a few of those of
you who did try to recognize some
of the pictures will want to know
who they are, so I will rack my
grey matter, (rack, rack) and try
to recall their names.
HERE THEY ARE
Starting on the top row and
reading from left to right Is the
order followed. First Is Jim Bev-
eridge, a Pub personality of '35-'36.
Next is a football player but I forget his name. Maybe I will think
of it before I get finished, I hope.
NeJtt along the line is Clarence
Idyll, followed by Hlmle Hoshevoy,
former editor-in-chief of the Ubyssey. Jack Davis is the smiling lad
in the basketball strip and at the
end is Lyle Vine, UBC personality
of several years ago.
NEXT ROW NOW
The second line starts out with
Dave Carey, famous English Rugby
star and Rhodes Scholar from this
University. After him follows
Jimmy Bardsley, member of the
Canadian Champion Thunderbirds
Hoop squad in *36-'37. Jimmy is
now in the Air Force on the
parirles. The smiling young co-ed
is Myfne Nevison, member of the
gals grass hockey outfit in her day.
Hunk Henderson, running mate
of Bardsley on the same Dominion
Champ Thunderbirds, follows.
Hunk has been in the news recently because of Internment In a German prison camp after being shot
down while flying over Naziland.
HERE COMES JO-JO
The serious faced gent next in
line is Jay Gould, a former president of tiie Alma Mater Society.
The last little fellow on the end
bouncing the basketball is Joe
Ryan, member of the latest Dominion Champion Thunderbirds of
two seasons ago. Joe is now studying dentistry at Toronto. Oh yes,
the fellow second from the left at
the top is Norm Renwick, English
Rugby and Canadian Football
player of '36-'37.
Well, you dumb guys, the next
time a quiz is run maybe you will
answer them and win the coke.
They're easy if you know them.

• SOCCER  IS   ANOTHER   ono
of those sports that has been
put on the shelf for a few weeks
because of the cald snap. The
UBC boys last played on January
16 and have no hopes of playing
for the next week at least.
Hard grounds made play difficult on that Saturday, but our
team made the best of what conditions were and triumphed 1 to
0, Then the snow came and then
more cold so that every gam* has
been cancelled until furtRer no-
tic*.
The soccer team got away to a
very slow start this season, but
are really rolling now. Their last
victory over the Navy was their
fifth straight. Mel Oughton and
Gordie Johnson, both star players,
have been removed to Gordon
Head lately. Gordle was the
playing manager of the team. To
replace these two players is one
newcomer who has showed exceptional talents. He is F, Adams,

This is the third person who has been lost to the sport
department of the rag this season. First Comrade Art Eaton
decided that he would join the Army (foolish thought) and
left us without our chief satirist.
"CLARK GABLE" WENT TOO
Then ju3t before the first Christmas vacations Bill
"Clark Gable" Gait left for Edmonton to take up training
with the RCAF. He was the editor of the page before taking
up his new position. Since he has been on the prairies, Bill
has grown a cookie duster and with his large ears they combined to give him a "Clark Gable" appearance that was readily
taken up by his mates. I don't see it myself but that is what
he told me in his letter.
But to get back to the Welsford case, his right to a
claim of lost interest is a just and true one.
'TWAS A COLD DAY
Bill was born one wintry blustry day way back in
1921 at St. John's, New Brunswick, January 11 to be exact
At the tender age of about three, four or five he moved out
to the evergreen playground (heh, heh, heh) and settled
down on 18th Avenue. After some years at this residence
he then moved, with his family of course, to his present abode
on 23rd Avenue, just across from Valdez Park.
He took elementary school training at Lord Kitchener
School, then moved on to Kitsilano for Junior and Senior
High, graduating in 1939. The University of British Columbia came next and, now in his fourth year here, be hopes to
graduate with a B.Com. Oh, yes, he's a Beta.
HE'S IN THE NAVY NOW
But to get back to his just claim to losing interest,
W. D. has just been accepted for the Navy and three nights
a week of training gives him a full program, with no time for
Pub work.
So, I forgive you Bill. All we need is a couple of new
reporters. Someone who can write a few SHORTstories.
Maybe I should "Write a few myself. I think I will.
