THUNDERBIRDS POWERFUL SCRUM seen here in a practice session, will run into heavy
opposition when they, tackle Victoria Crimson Tide in a renewal of the classic McKechnie Cup
rugby games   Inter-city friction has flared this year because of the close 7-6 win of the Victorians
From Christmas Exams
Game Set for Stadium at 3:15;
UBC Win Needed for Playoff
Albert Laithewaite's powerful English Rugger team will
see action tomorrow when Victoria Reps, more commonly known
as the "Crimson Tide" pay a return engagement with UBC.
It was this same Crimson
Tide which last January 20
achieved the dream of every
rugby squad in the province
by edging the UBC Thunderbirds 7-6, during the current
McKechnie Cup race.
This defeat of the mighty Thunderbirds marked one of the high points
in the history of English Hugby at
the Island city, and was the end of a
perfect unbeaten-untied record for
the student team.
For two years the students from
the university have reigned supreme
in the rugger field, and now, they
have tasted defeat. Neither the team
nor the coach have any excuses to
make — not even after absorbing a
second defeat from an Ex-South Burnaby Club.
Saturday, the Stadium will be the
scene of the return match with the
Victoria Crimson Tide. It will also be
the chance for the Thunderbirds to
recover a little of the prestige the
have lost.
The game, although not the most
important in the Blue and Gold
schedule, will be one of the most
bitterly-fought. The Birds are determined that Victoria will ruefully remember the day, and Victoria is just
as determined to make it a repeat
If the Crimson Tide wins their
second tilt against the students, they
will have all but captured the McKechnie Cup. A win for the Thunderbirds will, in all probability, necessitate a playoff match between these
two teams, the date or place of which
has not yet been decided.
When tlie starting whistle blows
tomorrow rugger fans will have an
opportunity to witness one of the most
bitter grudge matches ever staged.
Game time is 3:15 p.m.

Rosemary Hodgins, to round up offenders and hail them before a "judicial

Students Sate from Ejection
Although 'Formal' Tests Return
UBC students will never again face the threat of being
"Bounced at Christmas."
The yearly spectre of low Yuletide marks, in the past a
reason for automatic expulsion from the university, was lifted
Thursday by an announcement from Dean Daniel Buchanan.
The university will revert to form'
al Christmas examinations, dropped
this year in favor of "informal" tests
and will no longer ask students to
withdraw as a result of midterm
exams, the Dean of Arts and Science
The move is not meant to lower
standards at UBC, but to ease the
load on students new to the university system.
The decision, he said, was reached
at a meeting of heads of departments
in the Arts faculty on Wednesday.
Arts Professors Agree To Change
Dean Buchanan stated, however,
that the change in procedure does
not alter the fact that Christinas
Exams will play a large part in marks
given on final exams in April.
"The decision was made in order
to give first year students a chance
to adapt themselves to the University
system," the Dean said. "I do not
think we can judge a student incapable of carrying on his studies on
the basis of three months work."
"Christmas exams will, however, be
used as a basis to advise a student
whether or not he should continue his
course." he stated.
The much criticized Informal
Christmas exams came under fire at
the meeting, Dean Buchanan said.
A rule that many students have
come afoul of in past years has also
been dropped, he said. This rule
stated that any student who failed
in more than three units could not
be re-admitted to the University.
Tlie rule disallowing re-admittance
to those who fall one year twice running still remains in effect however.
Engineers Led Student Opposition
UBC's "informal" examination sys
tern first came under fire this year
when members of the Engineer's
Undergraduate Society asked the university to return to the previous formal exam system.
In Christmas examinations held late
last year, most students wrote one-
hour tests during regular lecture
In previous years, they had written
two and three-hour exams after the
close of lectures .
Support for student demands came
fust from Dean F. M. Clement, of
Agriculture, who declared many students were "confused and did not
know what to expect." He refused to
"bounce" any of his students on the
basis of Christmas marks.
Not Just Now,
Perhaps Later—
CUSC Quandary

left AMS election officials confused yesterday when he refused
to file his nomination papers for

Daily Ubyssey previously that he
Cunliffe is not running for CUSC,
or at least, he doesn't think he is,
or at least he is not at the moment
but may at any time. ,
Meanwhile, he is carrying his
nomination papers, all signed and
.sealed, sarely guarded in his coat
Ray Dewar, officially nominated
earlier this week, remains the
only candidate for the office as
deadline looms Wednesday, February 11.
While Cunliffe is making up his
mind, Dewar thinks "it doesn't
make much difference anyway,"
confident that the best man would
be elected to fill Rosemary Hodgins' position on the Student Council, Dewar refused to disclose
whom he figured was the best man.

The wisdom in relaxing the restrictions
on election campaigning was clearly indicated
Wednesday when nearly 5000 students flocked
to the polling stations to turn in an all time
record vote total.
The activity on the part of each campaign manager was doubtless not entirely
responsible for this record but certainly few
students could have been completely unaware
of the election in the face of 110 foot banners,
touring bands, and main mall sideshows.
The close equality of the two candidates,
Daves Brousson and Williams would explain
a part of the ballot flood.
In any event it is all to the good and the
only people who thought otherwise were the
hungry half-dozen who missed their dinner
Wednesday night to separate, count and recount the bushel heaps ballots.
Big Dave Brousson, the scienceman's
choice, was beaming and back-clapping happily yesterday morning as his supporters
congratulated him on his election to the
Alma Mater Society presidency, while Dave
Williams, his competitor in the race, received
"good fight closely lost" sentiments on his
near victory.
The election of the jovial, six foot-four
engineer marks an important trend in the
ways of student government, Brousson is 28
years old, is married and has two children,
one six and one four. Dave's administration
should follow the pattern set by Grant Livingstone who is 25 and of a mature adult turn
of mind.
At the University of Alberta, George
Hartling is the president of the Student Council at 35, and represents the best example of
the trend that has been expressed at every
school enjoying the advantages of self-government.
It is abundantly evident that student
government is no longer children's government.
The administration of a $200,000-a-year
business  is  a  serious  matter  and  must  be
treated seriously.
Aside from the day to day responsibility
of the purse-string control, student government has also, a perhaps more significant,
trust arising from the democratic method
of government employed in our country.
At the risk of introducing a suggestion
of high-school enthusiasm, we would point out
that the leadership training gained by offi
cials in the AMS will be of considerable
value to the administration of the nation. This
thesis applies to the governed as well as to
the governing. Participation in voting and
general meetings is one of the best possible
means of bringing home the true significance
of the ideals upon which a democratic government must be based.
Dave Brousson is facing a big job. He
thinks he can do it. More than 2500 students
who voted for him and only slightly fewer who
voted against him wil doubtless concur.
The Daily Ubyssey wishes to extend on
behalf, we are sure, of the entire student
body, the very best wishes for a successful
year at the helm of the AMS.
once over
Fignewton Tadpole is the practical type.
Only the other day, Fignewton decided it was
time he stopped trying to fool himself.
There wasn't much use trying to fool
himself any longer, he reasoned, because he
was getting too smart to be fooled by anybody
as stupid as he was. >
For more than a year Fignewton had been
fooling himself about all sorts of things.
Mostly he fooled himself about his homework.
For quite a while he was sucker enough to
fall for the line. But the other day Fignewton
smartened up.
Before this, Fignewton had found an
endless number of ingenious ways of fooling
himself about his homework.
On Monday Fignewton told himself it
was useless to do any homework. After all,
he had a whole week ahead of him to let
his lecturer's ideas crystallize in his mind.
Fignewton usually spent Tuesday and
Wednesday telling himself that he was bracing
himself for an all-out effort during the next
few days.
Thursday was just a blurr on his calendar, and by the time it was Friday, Fignewton
realized there was no sense trying to do a
whole week's work in one night.
And anybody»,who would expect a red-
blooded young university student like Fignewton Tadpole to work on a Saturday night
—well, anybody who expected that just didn't
know Fignewton,
Sunday is a day of rest, and although
Fignewton often had to call upon his powers
of resistance to keep it as such, he ultimately
managed somehow. An exhilerating hike up
thc mountain, Fignewton found, was as good
a way as any to keep Sunday the day of rest
it was intended to be.
Thus every Monday morning found Fignewton more determined than ever to get
down to work. And every Monday he was
farther behind.
But the root of the whole trouble did
not sprout from Fignewton's intentions. His
study timetable was the evil, choking weed.
It wasn't until just the other day that
Fignewton realized why neither he nor his
study timetable were working. His timetable
was too idealistic. It said what he was supposed to do, not what what he was going to
do. And it was too vague.
On his timetable Fignewton had put
down Philosophical Mathematics for Monday
night, Graphic Anatomy for Tuesday night,
Demonstrative Polygamy for Wednesday
night, and so on . . . But no details.
It was very easy, then, for him to fool
himself about whether or not he was following
his timetable. When he sat on the edge of his
bed, idly clipping his toenails, he told himself
he was meditating philosophically. When he
dropped into the pool hall for a game or two,
he always played with the numbered balls.
That was Mathematics. And often on Saturday nights he studied anatomy, in his own
quiet way.
But now all that has changed, Fignewton's
timetable has the realistic approach, A typical night's schedule reads like this:
"Read comics. Phone girl friend. Sulk.
Open text book. Light cigarette. Close text
book. Get drink of water. Open text book,
Butt cigarette. Close text book. Make trip to
bathroom. Open text book. Sulk. Clean ears
with pencil. Make trip to bathroom. Examine
self in mirror. Close text book. Light cigarette.
Make trip to bathroom. Open text book. Pare
toenails. Make trip to bathroom. Phone girl
friend. Sulk. Make trip to bathroom. Go to
Already the beneficial effects of this new
study timetable are beginning to show. Fig-'
newton is up to date  on the  comics.    His!
toenails are neatly pared.  His text book i.s
getting that well-used look.
But most important of all, he is following
the schedule to the letter.
His conscience is clear.

of plenty of initiative and ideas.
hi four years on thc campus he has
been active in hard, behind-the-scenes
organization of many successful social
events. His initiative was aptly demonstrated in his impromptu job as
MC at the frosh smoker, when he
organized a program of entertainment

of secretary to the Undergraduate
Societies Committtee. She is active
member on the Arts Undergraduate
Society Executive. Last year Mary
represented UBC at Victoria College
for the Frosh debates. This year she
is an active member of the Parliamentary  Forum  and  Radio  Society.
I feel the experience gained as
secretary of USC has given her an
insight into student affairs and qualifies her for the position of Junior
Rarely does one have the opportunity to nominate for Junior Member
a student with the experience Bob
Currie has. After service overseas
Bob came to UBC and was immediately elected president of the extremely active Acadia Camp council. That the confidence placed in him
was justified is proven by his reelection to that position. Contributing
greatly to the successful functioning
of USC, Bob serves as the very capable chairman of the ISS Committee.
Twice this year Bob has ably represented UBC at National conferences.
He has that happy knack of getting
things done. Vote for Currie—You

Heading up the coast th;
week for a Sunday date ■
Powell River, the league lending Varsity soccer team will V
out to stretch their latest winning streak to three in a row.
On their seasons record againsf
the cellar-dwelling paper town
club, the students have a perfect score of two wins in two
tries. Varsity is currently heading the league with a comfortable two game margin over
The other campus soccermen, UBC,
haven't fared as well as their Varsity
brothers so far, but they will be going
all out on Saturday to get back into
the win column when they tangle
with Kingsway Army and Navy at
Clark grounds. Game time is 2:15.
Bird Hoopmen Host
To Whitman Mon.
UBC Thunderbirds take, to the
Maples again Monday night at the
campus gym when they meet the
Whitman Missionaries in another important Conference hoop contest.
The Missionaries, who are currently riding in a fifth place tie with
the College of Idaho, have seven lettermen back this year, but there has
been a change in the coaching stair.
A part of the complete new athletic staff at Whitman this year is
the new casaba coach, Don Lindeberg,
formerly of Illinois College. He replaces Ben Dobbs who is now at
Grimmell  College,  Iowa.
Statistics show that the Whitman
squad has taken eight conference
titles, the same number won by Willamette Bearcats. However, it was in
the period between 1926 and 1938 that
the Missionaries won all eight and
they have not garnered a conference
title since.
The battle will be an important one
to the Thunderbirds as they cannot
afford to drop any more conference
games in order to have a chance at
the t'op rung.
Turfmen Battle

Four teams of the Lower Mainland
Grass-hockey league will be playing

India meets Vancouver B in an exhibition game. Games are on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

The weekend battle with the Crimson Tide will be between two of the
most powerful teams ever seen on
