. . . Council Comment
Why The Fuss?
Council  Defends  Plans
To Combine Class Proms
In a statement to the Ubyssey,
Tuesday, Peter McTavlsh, treasurer
of the Alma Mater Society, vigorously denied the accusation made
Monday by former Junior Class president Dave Ritchie that the Student
Council .was "chucking the Prom out
the  window."
"Such a statement Is absolutely
ridiculous, "McTavlsh declared, "We
havo voted to combine the Junior
Prom with the Senior Class party only
as a last resort, and out of deference
to what is tritely called Canada's
war effort."
PRESIDENT KLINK'S
SUGGESTION
McTavlsh explained that, although
tho cost of class parties ls practically
nil as far as the Student Council is
concerned, the expense to each individual ls considerable. Students
will recall Prealdent Kllnk's suggestion regarding this matter, made in
his opening address this session that
students "might weU reduce their
budgets for social fuctions and extracurricular   activities."
"We had to cut and we have to begin somewhere," was the comment of
Bob Bonner, L.S.E. president. "There
is no reason why the Junior Class
should feel slighted in being associated with  the  Seniors."
The merging of the Junior Prom
with the Senior Class party was the
least of many evils, according to Ruth
Wilson, president of the Women's
Athletic Association.
"After   all,"   Ruth   declared, ."What
else   could   we   do?   You   can   hardly
Imagine   combining   the   Nurses'   and
the   Science   Ball,   for   Instance!"
WHY THE FUSS?
This was also the opinion of Dorothy Hird, president of the Women's
Undergraduate Society, and of Betty
Bolduc, secretary of th-a Alma Mater
Society. Neither could understand
why there was such a fuss about
th-a   whole   affair.
Most of the Student Council members pelt that, if anyone should protest about the combination of the
Junior and Senior class parties, the
.Seniors had the greatest right to do
so.
RITCHIE'S STATEMENT MEETS
DENIAL
Ritchie's statement that "the Student Council has ben trying to get
rid of ythe Junior Prom for two or
thre years" met with vigorous denial   on   all   sides.

FORUM VOTES
EMBARGO ON
NIPPONESE
Canada should immediately enforce a complete Japanese embargo.
Such was the decision of the Parliamentary Forum on the merits of its
opening debate held Tuesday noon,
in Arts  100.
Archie Bain, introducing the question to the hou_-, headed those in
favour  of  the   embargo.
The opposition was led by Stewart
Chambers who claimed that such action • would be against Canada's own
Interests by making Japan give active assistance to the Axis Powers.
A  CHINESE  STUDENT  SPEAKS
The highlight of the proceedings
occurred when a Chinese student,
Joshua Long, starting with . an impressive cry of "Baloney!" ably represented the case for China.
Speaking with a native sincerity,
coloured by touches of humour, Long
appealed for a closer sympathy between Canada and his homeland. Ha
sat down amidst hearty and spontaneous  applause.
The wid-a Interest felt in the question was reflected by the largo attendance.
Lumsden Scores
Student Apathy
Towards Council
Deploring student disinterest ln
campus activities as witnessed by
absence of a quorum of Students at
Wednesday's Alma Mater meeting,
Harry Lumsden told the Ubyssey
Thursday that a new meeting would
be called for Tuesday, October 8, at
12:40   p.m.
"Has student Interest In extracurricular activities come to the
stage where lt ,1s of no concern to
the Individual?" Lumsden asked.
"This meeting should be the most
Important of the two regular meetings of the Society held during the
year."
"The policy of the Council representatives Is placed before the
student body for ratification. At
thla time also, the auditor's report of the Society's activities for
the previous year Is presented."
DIFFICULTY
"How is it possible for the Students' Council to submit or carry out
a policy that is satisfactory to all
concerned, if it Is not Informed of
what  is   desired   by   the  students?
"This meeting ls the proper and
legitimate place to vole, desires and
to express opinions on student government,"   he   stated.
"Students are interested and I am
sure that this will be shown by a
larger attendance and a more active
participation in the meeting Tuesday,
which concerns each one so intimately."

Blame   Council   For   Incomplete   Publicity,
Failure To Cancel Club Meetings Four
Councillors Absent From  Cairn  Ceremony
By PIERRE BERTON
A new all-time low has been reached In student spirit at
this University.
On Tuesday, at noon, exactly 27 students turned out to
take part in the Cairn ceremony and perpetuate the greatest
tradition the University of British Columbia has. Twenty-seven
students out of 2500.
> This included Ave members of the
Ubyssey staff and Ave council members,
Four council members, elected
to (heir positions by the undergraduate body, did not turn out
to honor the memory of those who
made the present campus possible.
ALMA MATER
At    an    Alma    Mater   meeting
Wednesday   noon,   less   than   100
undergraduates entered the Auditorium to participate In the government of their student society.
The   rest   sat   in   th-a   Cafeteria   or
wandered   about   the    campus   while
hard-worked   Mamooks   shouted   announcements   and   painted   signs   advertising   the   gathering.
Visibly embarrassed and disappointed at the small turnout A.M.S. President Harry Lumsden called a recess
In the hopes that the necessary
quorum  of  800  could  be   obtained.
Tho faithful flock of 100 trailed
back and the meting was adjourned
for good. It was the flrst time in
years, If not In history that the Alma
Mater meeting—symbal of student
democracy—was adjourned owing to
lack  of  attendance-.
Students were so eager to leave
the Auditorium and return to their
lunches that Lumsden had to ftsk
them to "have the decency to remain seated while your Council
leaves."

Sandy Nash
As Prexy
Arts sweaters, pep meetings,

mixer dances may make their
appearance on the campus in
the near future as a result of
an all-out campaign launched
by a newly elected executive at
a meeting of the Artsmen's
Undergraduate Society, Thursday noon.
Almost    20    students    crammed
Arts 100 to vote Sandy Naslt Into
presidency of the association In an
Illegal election marred by the absence   of   the   necessary   quorum.
Thunderous cheers of Sclencemen
holding    their    weekly    pep-meet
echoed   through  the  room.
Ken Eldridge will be vlce-presld-ant
of the society, with Don Buckland as
treasurer  and  Doug Hume,  secretary,
AGGRESSIVE
Despite lack of members, the Arts-
men decided upon an aggressive
campaign to build up Arts spirit.

cost Arts sweaters as well as an Arts
yell   book.

meetings in the Auditorium and
variety afternoon dances of the mixer
type In Brock Hall was discussed by

mo oks and Varsity Dance orchestra

the suggestion from the floor that the
Arts-Aggie Ball be held at the Hotel
Vancouver.
Th-a executive will meet at the beginning of the week to decide plans.
k Tho Alma Mater Society
Office, Brock Hall, requests
that all clubs hand ln a list of

Authoress
\Dr. Dorothy Mawdsley Joins
Department of English
Back   to   this   university   after   an  flout tradition by talking to a woman
absence of several years comes Dr.
Dorothy Mawdsley of the Department
of English.
To most studenta her name brings
vague recollections of a blue text
used ln high school, for she was a
co-author of "Modern Composition."
Written while Dr. Mawdsley was on
the stall of King Edward High
School,   this book  is  still  in  general
ie   throughout   the   province.
Dr. Mawdsley has a varied knowledge of educational systems throughout the continent, for she holds
Quebec, Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia teaching certificates.
Her own education has been obtained at widely separated points she
took her Doctor's degree at the University of Chicago, her Master's here,
and her Bachelor's at McOlll.
CO-EDS   OUTNUMBERED *
AT  McGILL
Speaking of her nudergraduate days
at McGiil, Dr. Mawdsley remarked
on tho contrast in numbers between
U.B.C. co-eds and those of the Montreal college. At McGiil, she said,
the girls were outnumbered ten to
one, and were made to feel the inferiority   of   their   position.
In lectures and In the library women
sat by themselves, and If a man dared
STUDENTS NOT INTERESTED
At the Calm ceremony, the day
previous, Lumsden had told the
handful of students that "unl-ess
there Is something vital at stake, studenta   just   aren't   interested."
Then he, Bob Bonner and Dorothy Hlrd outlined the glorious campaign of 1922 when students had
turned out in full force to make
possible the building of the present
Point Grey campus which students
enjoy   today.
Interviewed on the subject of poor
attendance, student leaders, many of
whom -were not on hand themselvos,
attacked the situation as 'disgraceful'
and offered the following material as
possible reason for the poor showings:
COUNCIL'S FAULT
1. Tho meeting was decided
upon on the spur of the moment.
Student council left arrangements to the last moment — finally realising that by-laws provided for the holding of the meeting within the first 20 days. Thus
the Ubyaaey received no notice
until the long past deadline time
and little publicity could be given.
2. Student council omitted to
cancel club meetings during Wednesday noon. Titus students flocked to organisation meetings, forgot
to -attend the Alma Mater meeting. The aame appUes to the
Tuesday noon  hour.
5. P. C.
In   the   library,   other   students   drew
attention  to  this  breach  of  decorum
by tapping with their pencils on the
tables   until   the   embarassed   couple
separated.
STAFF OF McGILL DAILY
Dr. Mawdsley, former Women'a Editor of Uie McOlll Daily, told of the
publication of that paper under di....-
cutties which the Ubyssey has never
faced.
The McOlll Publications, like ours,
located ln a Student Union Building,
but with the Important difference
that no female could enter the building. Stories written by co-ed reporters were coUected by the Women's
Editor and given to a messenger boy
to take to the office.
Men and women un thae Dally
staff  communicated  by  telephone,
or tUsucuased  details of the work
when they "happened" to meet In
the halls.    Speaking to each other
in   lecturea   would   have   been   a
social  error.
Athough she is glad to be back at
U.B.C, Dr. Mawdsley emphasized
tho   fact   that   she   liked   teaching   at
King Ed, and the student in her Eng-    movements,  to   be   introduced   by   Dr.

Alma Mater
The Alma Mater meeting called for Wedneaday noon failed to produce a quorum. Only
• few atudenta appeared at the semi-annual
meeting of the Sooiety, and the meeting had
to be cancelled.
The meeting ia an important one and
ahould have been attended by a good majority
of the students. It ia the one chance at the
beginning of the term for studenta to learn
what the exeoutive ia doing and to express
their approval or disapproval.
Why did 'this happen? Must we give as a
reason Just general apathy, Indifference to the
privileges and duties of student government?
Do the students find figures and reports too
dull to bother about them at all, or de they
think that other students will do the work
they themselves should be doing?
Part of the blame must be plaoed on insufficient notice of the meeting by the Counoil. Ae it was deolded late Monday night to
hold the meeting, little could be placed in The
Ubyssey to advertise the meeting. Members
of the Mamooks painted signs and advertised
the meeting, but as lt was all on the actual day
of the meeting, many students knew nothing
about it. On the same day, other societies
were holding executive and organization meetings, contrary to the rule which cancels all
club meetings during the time of an Alma
Mater meeting. This rule should have been
strictly enforced by Council.
The rest of the blame, however lies with
the students who have become so indifferent.
Student government, like parliamentary government, is based on the fact that the individuals in the group governed perform certain
civil duties in return for certain privileges.
On this campus, the students have developed
a fairly high form of student government, having control over practically all student activities.
The students, however, are willing to take
the privileges without performing the duties.
We might as well have no student government
at all if that is to be the attitude of the students.
Members of the Students' Council do a
great deal of work for which they get very
little in return. They have difficult problems
to meet every day, and in time of war like
the present, their problems become more difficult. If they find that the students are totally uninterested in what they are doing, they
are much less likely to do good work, and no
one can blame them.
There is also the danger that should this
indifference of the students continue to increase, an incompentent Council will be elected. By some foolish act of such a Council,
every right and privilege that the students
have gained might be lost without hope of recovery.
If we are not going to bother at all about
student government, then do away with it.
But if we believe in the principle of student
government and wish to keep the privileges, let
us support it outwardly and effectively.
When other Alma Mater meetings are
called, let the Council make arangements some
time before so that proper notice may be given. Then the Counoil should see that no other
meetings are being held on that day, and that
offenders against the rules are punished. With
proper publicizing, perhaps the meeting will
attract enough students to transact the necessary business.
More Smoker
In an editorial of the October 1 issue of
the Ubyssey, mention was made of an objectionable act in the entertainment at the frosh
smoker.
Most of the entertainment was under the
charge of Mrs. Georgia McMillan. She
placed on the stage two tap dancers, a soprano, and an acrobat, who gave from all accounts an excellent performance. But the objectionable act referred to above was not a part
of Mrs. McMillan's entertainment at all, and
was put on entirely without her knowledge.
We are very sorry if the impression •was
given that any part of Mrs. McMillan's show
was open to objection, for nothing of the kind
was meant.

REUVEN FRANK
A Canadian University Press Feature
New York—All the women in this city talk
like Brenda and Cobina. It's astounding.
Usually we picture ladies with Bronx or
Brooklyn accents as young, garish and dumpy,
just as we picture people who use the mountain dialect as rather old. Well, perhaps you
didn't but I did and that is all that's important at the moment. So it was a distinct shock
to see a little old lady with white hair and a
kindly, seamed face, turn to her companion,
and with the voice of an Edlphone, proclaim,
"Lls-sun Maybull."
It is opening day in a Manhattan high
school. The students of the last form are assembled in their classes, shamefacedly excited.
Outwardly, they are as all last-form high school
students, gangling or squat, and slightly fuzzy.
Their distinct characteristic does not show for
awhile.
The apeeoh teacher enters, a spare woman
with spectacles. As the class buzzes around
her, she makes her way up and down the aisles.
Each student in turn is asked to repeat, "My
sister Florence is a nurse. She hung her coat
oji a coat-hanger long ago." Actually this
sentence ls the spearhead of the current drive
against the "en gee click" and the offenders will
betray themselves by saying "Ion gago."
But the speech teacher is due for fustra-
tion; she has oome to the wrong school. The
students have "en gee clicks" but that is the
least of their speech defects. One after another, they begin "My sister Florence is a
noiss
An emergency test faces them.
"Say, 'The bird chirps'."
"De bold cholps."

Dr. Ellas Lleberman is becoming as pernicious influence.
Dr. Ellas Lleberman, by dint of his ability,
has risen to the post of assistant supervisor of
high schools in charge of junior high schools.
A native-born New Yorker, he has been polluted by the education that led to his Ph.D.
and he is wreaking havoc with that basic
American liberty, freedom of mis-speech. His
campaign will take the character out of this
city as profoundly as did Mayor LaGuardia's
razing of the Sixth Avenue El.
For Ellas Lleberman has passed a decree
— lilliburlero bullen aia — that English is to
be spoken at. all junior high schools. This is
little short of revolutionary. And the venerable Dr. L. goes even further; English must
be spoken not only in English classes but in
all classes. Figurez-vous! French classes will
no longer be conducted in an East Side brogue;
history students will strip Al Smith of his
brown derby and denounce him as a boor, a
vulgarian, a defiler of the rhythm of English
prose.
The aim of it ls all is to get the junior high
school students to speak a correct and beautiful English at all times, and it is precisely
there that Dr. Lleberman's campaign becomes
pernicious. It is all very well for correct
speech to be studied academically and then
forgotten, as are the Pythagorean theorem and
the use of the subjunctive in Latin. But we
must not forget that the junior high school student of today is the New Yorker of tomorrow,
and the New Yorker of tomorrow will be the
weak, insipid thing indeed if Dr. Lleberman's
correct English fifth column gains its ends.

The colored boy who shines your shoes is

"Mah, mah, mah. They's one beautiful

Obviously she hears him for she trips on
the steps that lead into the subway.
"Naow, doan't yo'-all fall, honey," he calls
after her, "or ah'U have to come to yo' reskew."
He flashes a grin or half a hundred white teeth
at you. "Ef ah doan' have three dollar' an'
fifty cents tomo'w, mah lan'lady, she goln' to
come to mah reskew!    Yas, suh!"
He is silent for a few minutes, then again,
"She sho' goin' to come to mah reskew!" he
laughs.
"Hyah, hyah, hyah ..."

The junior high school student bf today
is the citizen, the worker, the sports fan of tomorrow. Imagine a scene in Ebbets Field
twenty years from now. The Dodgers are back
in the cellar, where they belong, and are currently battling to overcome a twelve-run lead.
The stands are packed—and quiet. The umpire calls "Strike two!" There is a murmur.
A murmur! Why back in 1940 the benches
could do better than a murmur in the dead of
night with no one sitting on them. The umpire calls "Strike three!" and from out of the
deadly hush comes a voice in the bleachers,
"For shame." (Continued next column)

hame of Miss Dorothy McDonnell,
5869 Hudson St. (From 41st and
Granville walk three blocks east end
almost   one   block   south).
The speaker of the evening will be
Monsieur L. J. Dupuis. His subject
Is "Les Allemands en Belglque".
Monsieur Dupuis is the representative in Vancouver of the Belgian
Steel Trust and is also an officer of
the   Belgian   Reserves.
In May of this year he went back
to Europe with the intention of fighting tor Btelglum, but arrived too late.
Anyone wishing to become a member please apply to Margaret Cruto,

Or wUl Tony Oalento III, preparing
for his bout with fifty-year old
champion Joe Louis, say to the press,
"I'll moider de bum. I'll push his
face in. 1'U knock him cold ao fast
h-'ll tink he waa hit by- a truck?"
I am afraid not. We are more likely
to read, "I shall do my best to pound
Mr. Louis into a state of unconaclou-
ness, or at least semi-consciousness."
It's debilitating, that's what it is!
The depriving it of tht tools of its
vigour, a healthy slant, and a disregard for the rules of language. The
crowning shame wUl come on July
4, 1963, when the Dally Nirror wiU

Stadium—cricket, Mr. Ebbets' Field-

Out Of Window By Emoters
By MARY DRURY
The Player's club haa chucked
Lady Taasle half-way out of fhe
proverbial window. However, a few
malo atudenta managed to save her
before she plunged wholly Into oblivion.
These studenta are the ones who figured they would have time for stage
emoting and their regular army
duties—but they are few. And so a
new try-out piece haa been chosen
for women only, to down those 'frail
freshettes' as they try to attain their
goal—at the back of the Auditorium,
up the stairs and around the corner.
Now I wanted to be an actress, so I
went to get the part for my try-out—
you know, that traditional one from
'School for Scandal'. For days I
slunk around the Campus clutching
tattered bits of paper (which were
onco the script) muttering, "Sir Peter
. . I wonder If I'U get In ... I
should with all the experience I had
in that Chicken Flats High School
play . . . Oeet . . . Oh weU . . . Oh
well . .  . Sir Peter . . ."
Then the blow fell! "Owing to
the  shortage  of males you  must
have another piece for your try-
out . . . and a woman partner."

Four leaders, representing the S.C.
M., the C.O.T.C, the Inter-Fraternity
Council, and the Athletic Directorate
wUl present their views, followed by
discussion  from  the audience.
Dorwin Baird, program director at
ratio station CJOR, who is helping to
organize the 1940-41 year for the
U.B.C. Radio Society. Dorwln la a
former Editor-in-Chief of the "Ubyssey".
For the paat three years, Baird
has been on the news staff of
CJOR where he was Instrumental
ln forming the Campus Radio Society, and several spot broadcasts
trom the university, notably on
the opening of Brock Hall last
year.
He lately succeeded Dick Dlespecker
as Program Director.
ter the new lines but somehow old
Sir Peter managed to get mixed up
in them every time.
"Oh well, I didn't want to get ln
the Player's Club, anyway"? I sighed
as I wound my way to the back of
the Auditorium.
Emphasizing each word with a
stamp on a step I ascended to that
'Hallowed of HaUowed*', the Oreen
Room, murmuring "I've . . . decided
. . . to . . . divorce . . . Sir Peter—No
. . . it's Gregory! I've decided ... to
. . . divorce . . . Ger gory I . ."
At the top I was surrounded by
actor*—i.e. the most privileged inhabitants of the Oreen Room—. After a
few preliminary Questions they guided me (who was now quivering
violently) down the stairs, through
a formidable-looking door. As said
door ominously closed I found myself
standing beside another quivering Coed who was apparently to be my partner.
As I entered the stage my knees
started doing a mean Yankee
Doodle—wtth traps. Three tlmea
I attempted to seat myself gracefully; on the third attempt I gave
up the ghost and foil onto tho
nearest chair.
"I want to get out of here! I wish
I was back in Chicken Flats!" was
all my muddled brain oould think of.
Bravely I spluttered my lines . , .
still to the accompaniment of Yankee
Doodle. I must have finished In
thirty seconds flat.
With one jump I was off the stage,
out the door and down the steps,
vowing never to return . , . nevertheless I stiU sort of hoped.
And so my fate and that of about
100 other aspirants was left in the
deciding and capable hands of the
judges.

err  the  cAcrceAKD
By ARCHIE PATON
WALLY JOHNSTON
The other day as I was sitting behind my desk practising
a "how-to-greet-sport-publicity-managers" frown, who should
walk into the office but an old buddy from way back when—,
now one of the first-line stars on the Senior A basketball team.
"Ah, here is a great opportunity to get a pre-season basketball story from the Inside,"
thought I, so brightened up at
once and broached the question
so tender to my pal's heart.
Alas, I was doomed to bitter
disappointment, jEor this gentleman just closed up tight and
said he didn't know a thing
about any game going by that
monicer.
Well, this answer was so different from any I had received
from athletes in other lines of
sport when they figured they
were going to receive free publicity that I decided to look
into the matter more thoroughly to see if basketball really had
died and been buried when 1
wasn't looking.
VERY MUCH ALIVE
It didn't take very long to discover that basketball, far
from being a dead issue on the campus, is probably the most
important sport that will be played here this year. Not only
that, the prospects that we will have another Dominion Championship Senior A squad on our hands are very good, indeed.
Take a peek at the line-up of old and new talent available
and you will see what I mean.
Back again and rarin' to go are such notables as Pat Flynn,
the high-scoring giant who -worried opposing guards so much
last season; the gold-dust twins from Chilliwack, Wally Johnston and Jim Scott; lanky Don Duncan, the flash from Alberni;
and little Jo-Jo Ryan, the fleet-foot who made good with the
team last year.
Doug Pedlow, the freshman find of last season who had to
drop out for the second half because of inelligibility, and science-
man Don Livingston, who met the same fate, are back also, although the latter says he won't play till after Christmas.
NEW PLAYERS
Add to these Art Barton, graduate from the Senior B team
who is determined to make the big-time this year, and freshman Sandy Hay, who starred with Tookes last winter, and you
will find they total up to quite a formidable bit of material —
on paper at least.
Bob Scott is around again to manage the business affairs
of the club, and he reports that besides the Senior A squad,
basketball entries in the Senior B and Intermediate A divisions
of the Community League are a certainty. League play for
these lads begins October 15, less than two weeks from now,
while the big fellows get under way a little over a week later.
Therefore, club officials have called a meeting of all interested in joining any of these teams for today noon, when coach
Maury Van Vliet will outline plans for this bumper basketball
year. Practises will begin almost immediately—none too soon
if the boys hope to get the jump on opposing clubs at the first
of the season.
Archeresses In
National Meet
U.B.C. girls will again compete in
tbe Inter-Collegiate Archery contest
during   the   week   of   October   14th.
The shoot is conducted on the various campi, and results are forwarded to tbe Unlveralty of Western
Ontario     by     Air    Mall.   Last     year
contestants for the honours were
Margaret Eaton School, University of
Western Ontario, McOill, Queen's,
Ontario Ladles' Academy, and
MacDonald   College.
Increasing their score last year by
more than SOO points, over that of
two years ago, girls of the University
of British Columbia were within 200
points of the top scorer, Margaret
Eaton  School.
WOMEN'S  GRASS  HOCKEY
There will be important practices
on Wednesdays and Fridays at 3:30.
Strip can be obtained .any noon at
the Stadium, after the payment of
91.00 at the A.M-S. office. The team
for tomorrow's game is to be chosen
to-day,   so   everybody   out.

High School Stars
In  Frosh  Line-Up
Freshmen From City And Interior Schools
Present Formidable Assets For Managers
Of All Athletic Teams, Survey Reveals
A survey of potential athletic talent among the ranks of
the Freshman this year brings to light a better than average
number of newcomers in almost every line of sport featured
on the calendar. This news should be very heartening to
Senior Managers; so, In accordance with its policy of co-operation as far as possible, the Ubyssey herewith presents a complete list of its findings.
ENGLISH RUGBY A
From last year's great High School
R'.p team come English rugby players
Dick Elvln of Lord Byng, Johnny
MacDonald of Magee, and Oeorge
Rush of Kitsilano. Others from top
senior teams include Ray Gorman
and Jack Smedley of Magee, and
Doug. Mitten of Kits. Freshmen BUI
Street, Al Bailey, Al Dean, and Jim
Chatwln, all members of Magee's
champion junior squad, are turning
out. From St. George's School, which
Is noted for superior rugger, come
Bill Maitland, Jack Strong, Jack
Rose, Roger Hatpin, Dick Wallace,
and   Jack   Betteridge.
With   these   players   to   start   with,
the   Freshmen   aren't   conceding   the
Sophomores a chance of winning any
rugby   games   this  year.
CANADIAN  FOOTBALL
At least five of last year's leading
high school Canadian football players
are attending Varsity this year. They
are Gorman and George Reifel of
Magee, Bud Falrgrleve and Bill Norton of King Ed., and Rush of Kits.
Rush also stars at basketball and it
is more likely h-e will turn out for
that   sport.
Some of the best bets for basketball include Frosh president Sandy
Hay   of   Magee,   Bryce   Fleming,   also
Ruggermen Get
New Coach
H
Twenty English Rugby enthusiasts,
half of them freshmen, held their
flrst work-out of the season Wednesday afternoon, under the direction
of newly-elected coach, Tom Stewart. Stewart ia a former New Zealand player and was president of the
North Shore All-Blacks from 1934-
36.
Tom Meredith, senior manager, reports most of the old team that are
back are turning out, including
Evann Davies. Alan Wallace, Mac
Buck and Bob Field, Walter Friker,
Maitland, last year with St. George's
former Victoria College star, and BUI

of the Freshman team. There -will
also be two Science teams and one
Arts  fifteen  in  action this winter.

fixtures, with a Rep team meeting
Victoria and Vancouver squads In
exhibitions.
of   the   red   and    black,    and    Earle
"Monk"   Helsler,   of   Kits.
TRACK AND FIELD
A Frosh track and field meet would
see two grsat fights for honours. In
the --prints, Mike Young of King
Edward and the aforementioned Gorman, should finish as close together
as  customers  in   the  book  store.
Keen competition should result in
the weight events ■ between Tage
Wick-strom of Britannia and Torn
McCammon of Trapp Tech., two flrst
rank shot-put men. Doug Lee of
Lord Byng, who ran second in the
high school mile, is th-a only known
distance-runner of note in the class
of  '44.
Add to all these names those of
boxer Tommy Syme and .-.-hockey
player Ed. Taylor, and you have a
fairly complete list of outstanding
athl.tes   among   the   Frosh.
Rugby/Volleyball
Featured Sports
Time-tables are providing the real
headache to Maury Van Vli-ct and his
Intra-Mural managers ln the organization of these events on the campus
thia year. Maury hopes, however,
that Intra-mural sport will take the
placo of the already curtailed major
athletics and that a suitable timetable for the events will be drawn
up   by   the   beginning   of   next   week.
Competition for the Intramural English Rugby championship will get under way almost immediately. A
double header Is scheduled for Wednesday noon on the upper playing
field where four of the class teams
will clash to open the season. The
Frosh line-up looks Uke the most formidable and they state that they have
declared an open season on Sophomores.
VOLLEY BALL
Volley-ball Is expected to start In
about two weeks time and Coach Van
Vliet is confident of a large turn-out
for  this  interesting sport.
The classes and Faculties will begin
the Cross Country races about the
end of October. There will be a rep-
presentative team picked from the
material on hand for these events
which will wear the Blue and Oold
in a featured Cross Country event
against the Royal Canadian Air Force
team. This event will take place later
in   November.

takes on Ex-Kite with Mem. Nevlson and Hortense Warne, last year's
captain and manager respectively, as
the opposition. Varsity has a good
collection of players out it can hardly
be called a team as yet. Any girls
who wish to play should get in touch
with   Orace   Bunnell,   the   manager.
Thase watching the girls at archery
practise and thinking it is easy to
pull a bow should come out to see
an archery lesson and try their hand
at the art. It looks easy and graceful, but this scr.t>e nas found (to h.r
amazement) that lt takes considerable muscular co-oordinatlon. Thirty
pounds of energy are required to
pull some of the bows.
