Sinclair Receives
Great Trekker Award
In  19It- the Point Grey site
was chosen as the best location
for UBC, and a government land
grant was made to the univer-
: sity.  .
Tenders for four buildings to
he erected at once were called
in 1912.
Clearing operations began
shortly afterward and construction of the Science Building and
Agriculture barns began in
1914.
The advent of World War I
halted operations. The bare girders of the Science Building
(now the Chemistry Building)
symbolized the first disappointment in the life of the new university.
Nevertheless, in the fall of
1915 UBC opened its doors.
Location was then in the
"Fairview Shacks" on the Vancouver General Hospital grounds
at Tenth and Laurel.
The enrolment that first year
was 379.
Between 1916 and 1922, enrolment increased 211 per cent
to 1176 students; however accommodation had increased
only 25 percent during this
period.
Since 1919 inadequacy of the
"Fairview Shacks" had become
■painfully noticeable. Classes
were held in shacks, tents, a
church basement, attics, and
nearby homes. Construction at
Point Grey had not been resumed.
tl was these circumstances
which fostered the birth of the
Great Trek.
STUDENTS AGITATE
Early in 1922, the students
began agitating for action in
building the university on the
Point Grey site.
Committees were formed, and
decided to petition the government to take the necessary
action which would result in
the University being moved to
Point Grey.
The week of October 22-29,
1922, was declared "Varsity
Week." By the end of the week,
56,000 signatures had been collected.
Six page boys were required
to present the rolls to the House!
Meanwhile, a mammoth Saturday morning parade through the
main streets of Vancouver
climaxed "Varsity Week."
The parade disbanded on
Davie Street, and the students
rode street cars to 10th and
Sasamat.
Disenbarking, they marched
over a horse trail to the almost
bare campus.
On protest against government
"inaction," each of them picked
up a rock and piled these in
front of the un-completed
Science Building.
On this site, the rocks were
later fashioned into a cairn.
"Varsity Week" and the pilgrimage to Point Grey were almost immediately successful. On
November 9, 1922, Premier
John Oliver announced a government grant of $1,500,000, and
construction on the Point Grey
site began once more.
AWARD FOUNDED
Such was the history of the
Great Trek.
In 1950 the Students' Council,
inaugurated the Great Trekker
Award.
This award was to be presented annually to an alumnus of

UBC has launched a nation-wide student campaign in aid
of the Hungarian youths now being held under sentence of
execution. • -.. '    -
AMS President, Peter Meekison, told the Ubyssey today
that the national executive of NFCUSand the student presidents of several eastern -universities have pledged support t©
the UBC program. -   "
Present plan are .for' the-immediate circulation among all
Canadian university student bodies of a uniform petition asking
that the lives of the youths be
spared. It is hoped that nearly
75,000 signatures can be obtained.
The petitions will be circulated by the individual universities and forwarded to UBC during the next week and a half.
They will be of a standard
form, addressed to Premier Ni-
kita Khrushchev, asking him to
exercise his influence in Hungary and spare the young rebels'
lives as a demonstration of his
earnestness in professing a desire for world peace.
A letter will be sent with the
original   copies   of   the   petition
directly to the Premier in the:
Kremlin.
Photostats of the signatures
will also be presented to Prime
Minister Diefenbaker asking his
support for the plea in the
United Nations.
FORMS CIRCULATED
At UBC the campaign for signatures is being conducted by
representatives of the undergraduate societies. Petition forms
are being circulated in classrooms and labs all during this
week.
"I urge every student to sign
this petition," said Meekison. "If
there is any hope for these young
rebels it lies in the people of the
free world immediately voicing
their disapproval of such brutal
police-state tactics. We are making every conceivable effort to
reach every student at UBC with
a petition form. Anyone that has
not been contacted by Thursday
please come to Brock Hall. The
AMS office will be open from
10 until 4 and a copy of the
petition will be available."
CAMPAIGN BEGINS
The campaign began last week
with the announcement by Bela
UBC CONFERS
FALL DEGREES
Four hundred and seventy students graduated from UBC
in a solemn ceremony Friday.
In addition, Chancellor A. El Grauer conferred two honorary degrees, to John E. Robbins, editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia Canadiana, and Sir Hugh Scott Taylor, President
of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation,
residences
Three  new   men's
were officially opened after the
convocation.
Two innovations were made
in the traditional ceremony.
The newly formed School of
Music has organized an orchestra from members of the faculty
and other students. Part of this
group, under the direction of
Professor Hans-Karl Piltz, replaced the organ which had supplied music in former years.
NEW MACE USED
The other change was in the
use of a mace representing the
authority of the Chancellor.
Unique amongst maces, the
new symbol is in the shape of
an indian club, in keeping with
the tone of the university.
The   six-foot   long   club   was
carved from yew by Vancouver
sculptor George Norris, who was

30   youths   were   executed   for
their part in the Hungarian re-,
volution of  1956. He said that
over 100 others are now being
held   under  sentence   of   death"
awaiting the time when they can
be legally   shot.   The minimum
age at which the death sentence
may be executed in Hungary is
18 years.
Hungarian President Janos
Kadar has denied the validity of
these charges, but informed
sources in the free world believe
thei%to be true.
Immediate action was taken
last week by Andre L'Heureux,
executive secretary of the National Federation of Canadian
University students, in the form
of a telegram sent Friday to
Kadar, It expressed the strong
disapproval of the "Unbelievable
inhumanity of the executions"
and asked intervention by the
government against the completion of the sentences in the interests of common humanity.
It is hoped that by continuing
such protests and adding the
weight of some ,754)00 signa*
tures, world attention and pub*-
lie opinion can be brought t»V
bear, forcing the;Hungarian government to stop their executions-
of the youths.

What  Principles?
jekyH And Hyde
Twentieth century Russia is the acknowledged master of
t^e art of propaganda. Yet America recently turned the tables
on her through the use of a propaganda maneuver carried out
in the interest of 150 young Hungarian patriots.
Over a nationally televised programme shown one week
ago, it was announced to millions of American and Canadian
citizens that the children who had participated in the 1956
Hungarian Revolution were soon to be shot for treason.
To the American and Canadian public, such an act would
be unanimously condemned as brutal and inhuman, and well
recognized as an action which typifies aggressive and totalitarian states.
On his recent visit to the United States, the Russian
leader, Mr. Khrushchev, had spoken often of the Soviet people's
love for freedom and peace. But the action of communism in
rjungary contradicts Mr. Khrushchev's statements. If the Soviet
leader had been sincere when he spoke to the American
nation, how could such harsh executions be carried out?
Over the air the American people were asked to test Mr.
Khrushchev's sincerity on his recent tour by writing to him
personally, and asking him to use his influence to spare the
lives of these young men and women.
Propaganda such as this is the only device other than
fpr^e left to the West to combat communism. America seems
tCQ iQosely organised to use propaganda as effectively as Russia,
ypf $ijs, case could prove the exception.
- Tbe chance that the maneuver will be successful in saving
tbe lives of the Hungarian rebels is very slim, but as Mr.
Khrushchev rejects this plea for mercy he nullifies the humanitarian impression he so carefully nourished during his recent
tour.

Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Pear J3ir:
In reply to Mr. Allan Graves'
outrageous comments on a subject which is dear to my heart
<— Rock n' Roll over UBC
Badio (which appeared in a
Letter to the Ed. on Oct, 30),
I would like to offer the following remarks:
While Mr, Graves would
-agree that a liberal education
is a desirable goal for any
young student, he disagrees on
the liberal tastes of students in
-the musical field.
Mr. Graves — Please realize
that we are living in a democratic country. If the majority
of students want to harken to
the enchanting strains of "Mack
.the Knife" or "Teen Beat",
then by all means let them!
Besides, this stimulating
music has a rhythm that not
only keeps the student-listener
mentally "alert" for reading,
"but it also prevents him from
falling asleep if he were to
'listen to "classical" music all
day.
InciaentaHy, it has been scientifically proven that if music
of a loud and discordant nature
is flayed during milking, cows
will produce more Why, then*
deprive  our :stujdept$s..oi  this
chance to become the "cream"
of the crop?
In closing, I feel that although
this campus is over-burdened
with far too many useless clubs
(as was so well described in
the Oct. 30th Editorial), what
we REALLY need is a Fan
Club for Rickey-Fabian and
Presley admirers. Once organized, our first project will be
"Rock — Round the Clock on
UBC. Radio". The trend, friends
is the new, happy sound. So,
get with it, Man!
_   Aesthetically yours,
—Ralph Henderson.
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Mr. Khrushchev is a cad,
sir! The Reader's Digest has
told me so and even Newsweek
has suggested as much. It is
useless to write him on behalf
of these deomed Hungarian
youths.
But De Gaulle is a great
man. Is he not a christian?
Does France not belong to
NATO? Well then, let us write
to De Gaulle imploring him to
alter the torture methods employed in Algeria.
Yours truly,
—D.-Cod«ille, Arts .IV.
Whenever there is friction
between man and man, it is
our tradition—our heritage—to
rely on law or, in its absence,
on ethics to find a basis for
settlement.
Disputes between management and labor in our
economic life are no longer
confined to a relatively small
number of individuals. Controversies of nation-wide scope
have arisen affecting the lives
and fortunes of millions of
citizens.
Industry-wide bargaining is
in itself a phenonmenon of our
expanding economy Not only
are the managements in an industry lined up in a group on
one side, but a single union, on
the other side, controls the lives
and destinies of hundreds of
thousands of employes even
though they w*rk in competing
plants.
Thus what is denied employers by the antitrust laws—the
right to combine and fix prices
—is exercised by a national
labor-union monopoly which,
in a given industry, has control
over the fixing of wage costs.
This, in turn, determines prices
and can force a decline in the
purchasing power of the dollar.
by DAVID LAWRENCE
Nobody can be compelled to
work. But do a group of individuals have the right to
conspire to prevent other citizens from working if they so
desire?
Today many employers are
required to fire any employe
who refuses to join or to remain a member of a union. An
employe who tries to cross a
picket line subjects himself to
threats of violence. Certainly
he runs the risk of union discipline.
Is all this in free America
the sign of a growing totalitarianism? Has monopoly become so all-powerful now that
the law must step in? Compulsory arbitration is being urged
by some as a remedy if a strike
is resumed upon the expiration
of the 80-day injunction provided by the Taft-Hartley law.
But is this the best answer?
What is needed is a declaration of principles and an acceptance by our society of the
rights and equities proclaimed.
Here are some suggestions:
1. Labor shall have the right
to organize unions and to bargain collectively with employers, but must not impair free
competition between the companies.
2. Labor is entitled to wages
Letters To The Editor
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I like to support Len Geddes
in his remarks about President
MacKenzie's address last Thursday. If we can't have freedom
of the press at the university
level, how can we have it at
the national or the international
level?
Freedom of the press means
freedom exercised responsibly,
that is, presenting facts as facts
and opinions as opinions, and
following the truth wherever
it may lead. As soon as we
abandon the latter we become
the victims of ignominous controls resulting in intellectual
stagnation.
If it is true that university
people will in general fill the
influential positions in this
world, then it becomes a matter
of life-and-death importance
that we insist on a free press
for the Ubyssey; for how can
we expect a' free press to function or even to exist in our
democratic society if the succeeding generation is already
subjected to official and/or unofficial controls? There is a
wealth of evidence today that
our so-called "free" press is the
manipulative tool of a few who
seek to mold the masses to further their insidious ends. May
the' following not only be an
illustration, but also a warning: When John Swinton, the
editor of the New York Times,
retired, he was given a banquet. In response to the eulogy
he received, he made a very
shocking and sensational statement as follows:
"There is no such thing in
America as an independent
press. You know it and I know
it. There's not one of you who
would dare^write his honest
opinions. The business of a
journalist.^ is. to   destroy  the
truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to villify, to fawn at the
feet of Mammon, and to sell
himself, his country, and his
race for his daily bread. We are
the tools and vassals of rich
men behind the scenes. We are
jumping jacks; they pull the
strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our
lives are the property of these
men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
Yours truly,
.—Hart Bottinck.
"NOBODY'S EVEN
INTERESTED  . .   "
The Manager,
UBC Bookstore Coffee Shop,
Vancouver 8, B.C.
Dear Madame:
Over the recent weeks we
have been appalled at the obvious lack of efficient service
offered by the south table section of the Bookstore Coffee
Shop.
The minimum time required
to receive and consume a cup
of coffee has increased from
ten to twenty-five minutes due
to this lack of interest in the
customer.
We feel that the apathy displayed by your staff is disgraceful. Obviously, the student body
is the sole reason for the exist-
ence of this enterprise. It should
therefore follow that some respect be shown for the clientele.
We trust this situation will
be rectified in the immediate
future.
Yours truly,

that are progressively improved, as economic conditions permit, and also to some s"hare in
the profits.
3. Labor is entitled to increasing benefits in the field
of insurance, health and pensions — not as a matter of
charity but as a part of the
total compensation for work
done.
4. Executive and administrative employes usually not
included in union membership
are entitled to varying compensation, commensurate with
their ability and their contribution to effective management.
i5. Management is entitled
to provide an adequate return
to the investor of capital and
to allocate annually to the company's surplus account a portion of profits sufficient to
take care of future replacement
and the improvement of plant
and equipment.
6. Neither labor unions nor
management shall engage in
any concreted action to fix
prices—which is the inevitable
result of fixing wage costs for
a whole industry. Neither employers nor labor unions shall
be allowed to enter into agreements uniformly fixing wages
in competing plants. Wages
basis of capacity to pay in each
shall be determined on the
business.
7. Management shall have
the exclusive right to manage.
Working rules made by agreement between the unions and
management shall be subject
to revision in any'future contract. A formula for the settlement of grievances is essential
to good relations between management and the  workers.
8. No citizen shall be coerced into joining a union or be
penalized by a union or an employer for failing to join. No
union shall interfere with the
ingress or egress of workers
at a plant at any time.
9. "Peaceful picketing" shall
foe confined to communications
between the workers themselves. No "boycott" of any
business shall be permitted.
For it is a conspiracy to damage private property, which in
common law is a punishable
offense.
10.When automation is introduced or other changes
made that diminish the number of employes required in
any plant, it shall be the responsibility of management to
provide adequate compensation until the workers to be
released obtain substitute employment.
These are but a few of the
principles that could help to
establish a better relationship
between management and
labor.
Otherwise, we must succumb
to a regimented s ociety in
which big unions and big industrial units assume wide
powers, not only as between
themselves but over our whole
society.
Our economic progress as a
nation has come largely because we have believed in private initiative, private enterprise and, above all, in recognizing the equities of the individual citizen—employer and
employe alike.
We   must   not   drift   into   a
state of anarchy for which the
only  remedy will be a  state-
controlled economy.

Aids City Groups
Three hundred and thirty-one fraternity and sorority
pledges took part in the Annual Inter-Fraternity Council-
Pan-Hellenic Society Help Week last weekend.
The pledges worked in groups,
each group spending from four
to six hours on projects in
various parts of the city.
Ninety pledges carried on a
last-minute campaign in co-b'r-
dihation with the Red Feather.
Fifty pledges cleared five
acres of land at Crescent Beach
for Camp Alexandria.
Smaller    groups    worked    at
cleaning and painting various
boys and girls clubs, gravelling
the parking lot at the Jewish
Community Center, and painting rooms at the Catholic Children Receiving Home.
The Help Week activities
saved considerable time and
money for several charity organizations, and as well made
ready facilities which would
otherwise be out of use.

FRATERNITIES PROBED
FOR DISCRIMINATION
UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
(CUP) — Caput, the University
of Toronto's supreme disciplinary body on campus, is investigating the fraternity-sorority
discrimination issues.
Caput, following a closed
meeting Saturday morning,
issued a statement unanimously
endorsing President Claude T.
Bissells in his declaration of
principle—"that any action of
discrimination based up'on race,
religion or colour strikes at the
very heart of the life of" the
University of Toronto."
"The application," the statement continues, "of the principle of the recent incident involves a study of the complex
and technical questions of the
relations between the university
and the fraternities."
Shortly after the Bobbi Arrington incident was made public President Bissell explained
fraternities and sororities were
technically private clubs, but
that they are made up of undergraduates of the University and
so the University is concerned
with what they do.
President Bissell continued—
"the university will not remain
aloof because of its technical
position—being apart from sororities and fraternities."
The Caput backed Dr. Bissell
completely.
Lutheran Debate
The Lutheran Student's Association is sponsoring a debate
,on tne question "Is Dancing Compatible with the Christia Religion?"
L.S.A. invites all interested
students to attend, and promises
that the debate will be a lively
one. It will be held next Monday
at noon in Bu 216.

Dr. Malcolm McGregor, head
of the Department of Classics,
acted as marshall and mace-
bearer for the chancellor's procession.
More than 2000 parents and
friends of the graduates attended
the colourful ceremonies, which
took place in the Armories.
Mayor Alsbury and Chief Justice Des Brisay were on the
platform with the President,
Chancellor, Deans, and about 200
faculty members.
GRAUER SPEAKS
In his remarks to the assembly,
Chancellor Grauer commended
the graduates for their contributions to the UBC Development
Fund.
He remarked that these contributions had been earmarked
for the building of student residences.
"It is therefore fitting that
your graduation and their "opening be linked," he said.
"This university has been
built on the efforts of all who
have wished her well," the chancellor concluded.
Dr. MacKenzie introduced Sir
Hugh Taylor as the convocation
speaker.
Sir Hugh was knighted by the
Queen for his work during and
after World War Two and for
his contributions to the Manhattan Project.
He was in the group which
developed the heavy water industry at Trail, but has made his
reputation as Professor of Chemistry and Dean of the Graduate
School at Princeton University.
Speaking on "Science, Poetry
and Wisdom", Sir Hugh said,
"Let us hope that the new graduates will, as philosophers and
lovers of wisdom, discover the
methods whereby the pursuit of
wisdom can be combined with
the solution of the practical problems that so urgently face the
whole world."
He cautioned the graduates,
"Do not leave the university and,
with lowered mental temperature; pass into a passive state of
intellectual hibernation."
Following the ceremony, the
spectators were invited to come
to the opening of the three new
men's residences on < Marine
Drive.

Commission Failing
To Draw Support
"This commission will fail unless we get the support and
co-operation of the students," said AMS vice-President Pele
Haskins yesterday.
He was referring to the commission, of which he is head,
set up recently by the AMS to look into the form of student
government on campus at present.
Differing from three previous
investigating groups in that it
closely resembles a royal commission the neW body will depend heavily on briefs submitted to it by individuals and
groups on campus.
The hearings, Which are open
to the public, will begin Nov.
12 and continue every Thursday at noon.
The meetings will take place

FILMSOC
TO AID
FAILS
SPIRITS
A series of midnight Seances held in the Auditorium over
the weekend failed to rid it of poltergeists who were interfering with Filmsoc's presentations there, a filmsoc release
said.
The decision to take means to
exorcise spirits from the Auditorium was made after Wednesday night's showing of "Henry
V" when someone from Hell was
reported to have mended the
film} with tape.
Various spiritualist communities were asked to arrange
seances during the weekend, but
no favourable results were reported.
A Filmsoc executive meeting
On Monday decided to approach
the affiliated theological colleges
to hold services to exorcise the
spirits.
If no results occur, Filmsoc
said they will arrange with the
library for the loan of .several
- medieval manuscripts oo alchemy, sun-worship, and black
masses, and will arrange their
©wn .service for midnight Monday.
One theory of the origin  of
. the, spirits was advanced at one
of the seances.
Special Show
On Homecoming
Scenes of the campus in its
early days will be compared to
the present in a special pre-
Homecoming feature tonight on
CBUT's Seven O'Clock Show.
Film sequences shot in 1922
and rarely shown publicly will
be compared to present scenes
of the campus in an effort to
promote public interest in this
year's Homecoming.
The Homecoming Committee,
in co-operation with the UBC Radio Society and Film Society,
collected photographs and movies of tie University's past 'and
present, and submitted them to
Jean Lawrenee, producer of the
Seven o'clock Show.
'•'■■ Writer David Brock will prepare the commentary and Bob
Quintrell will- narrate the ten-
minute history.
Because of a smoky sulphur
and molasses smell, it was
thought it came from the Faculty Club.
The group said that a new
home would have to be found
before the spirit iwould leave.
Blood Figures
Show Mistake
Remember the Fall Blood
Drive?
Remember a few weeks back
when UBC failed to bleed up to
its quota?
And remember the Ubyssey
announcing that the nurses had
bled best, meeting with 137 percent of their quota?
Well, they did bleed to 137
percent, but that was not good
enough to beat out the sanguine
Aggies.
Russ Robinson, chairman of
the Blood Drive, announced yesterday that he had made a mistake in the counting.
The Aggies actually gave up
to 186 percent of their quota,
rather than the 135 percent originally announced.

Because Prime Ministers' conferences and other Commonwealth meetings have studiously
avoided discussion on such
topics as 'apartheid' in South
Africa, ■' disputed; Kashmir in
Pakistan and India, and Canada's

Professor W. D. Young said.
The Commonwealth should
back up its big words with appropriate actions, the students
decided.
A permanent consultive council which would discuss all common problems, should be established.
The students also recommended a permanent secretariat to

It was decided however that
the commonwealths potential as
a moral force for good in world
affairs was very great.
The member nations are kept
together in loose organization
by their common origins, their
regard for the rule of law and
the protection of the rights of
the individual, their reverence
for the queen, their respect for
the loosely - defined "British
way of life," and their desire for
a multi-racial society, the students  decided
If member nations individually, lived up to these principles,
and if the commonwealth exerted pressure on its members to
uphold the ideals to which they
pay lip service, then eventually
the association would set an example of harmonious and peaceful living to the rest of the
world.
The Colombo Plan, although
it is no longer strictly a Commonwealth project, is one of
Ithej good things already accomplished by the association,
the students decided.
Mohammed Sein, of Pakistan,
explained that Commonwealth
aid, especially Canadian, is appreciated more in Asian
countries than is American because it is felt that Canadian
aid is given without political
strings attached.

Connie Robinson, Home Ec. II,
"Not very good in the afternoon.

Margaret Nelson, Arts I, "They

good compared to what we get
in New Westminster."
Boyanne Backman, Ed. II, "If

on Sunday, you might as well
walk."    , '
Jeannie Coulter, Ed. II, "I
think that the six cents they
charge is reasonable."
George Buchholz, Arts II,
"They should be free from the
gates. The government should
pay for them. That would
eliminate the parking problems."
Bob Davidson, Com. II, "They
stink. I never take them."
Evelyn Levis, Ed. II, "You
have to show your pass every

Fred Brown, Ed. I, "Yau

Joyce Shovar, Ed. I, "If you

hopeless getting out of here."
Pat Whitby, Ed. II, "The con*
nections are long. One-and-a*

by car." ''
Cathy Vool, Arts II, "Why in
the name of 'goo' when you'
are carrying a pile of books and
your purse is underneath theni,'
does the bus driver ask you for
your pass every time?"
We asked students if they
would favor a special express
service running from maybe
New Westminster and the North
Shore out to University. Most of
them agreed whole-heartedly.
Jervis Atkinson, Arts I, "That
would be an idea for North
Vancouver."
Rick Atkinson, Arts I, "No,
because the people that take the
buses are the ones that get lectures, at ten o'clock or so. I
think the buses should be cut
to every ten minutes. The B.C.
Electric isn't making any money
on it."
Evelyn Levis, Ed. II, "Yes, it
would be a good idea. It doesn't
seem fair to have to pay 15c
every time."
Daryll Roberts, Arts IV, "I
don't think so at all. That should
be up to the students."
Donna Andrich, Ed. I, "An
express bus would be best. Cut

Athletics Stop Birds
In Overtime Opener
By MIKE HUNTER
I    ■ (Ubyssey Sports Reporter)
Alberni 77, UBC 76 (overtime)
The Alberni - Athletics eked out a narrow 77-76 overtime
■win over the UBC Thunderbirds, Saturday night in Alberni.
■ The game was the iirst  Inter-city League  encounter for
both teams. »
At the end of regulation time, the teams were deadlocked at
68-68. The deadly shooting of the A's John Kootnekoff, who scored
"seven of his team's nine oyertime points, led his team to victory.
In all, Kootnekoff collected 27 points to lead all scorers. Birds'
high man was Dave Way with 15, followed by Ed Pederson arid
Ken Winslade with 12.
r Behind in First Quarter
Birds overcame a 23-15 quarter-time deficit to lead by one
point .at;the half. Coach Jack Pomfret seemed pleased with the
'Birds'" showing,   although he   admitted   the team  lacked  polish
"Considering this was their first game, and against the defending
Champions, the boys played well."
Pomfret said that the main think lacking was speed. "Although
they* Only got two fast breaks on us, we're going to have to concentrate oft our defence this week."
CotftAilion Counts
"Since we only have four veterans on the club, the boys are
going to have to concentrate on leg work for a while. It's a tremendous jump from high school and JV ball to Senior A," he continued,
"and w'ith these new rules, the best conditioned team should take
' it" -      '
New Rules
•JPomfret said the 30-second rule was never called, and probably
never will. "But the big problem occurs when the game starts to
get close in the last quarter.
Now almost all the fouls called are judgement calls, and when
the officials suddenly tighten .up, something has got to give." This
calling of infractions- that have been let go earlier in the game
caused a large beef in Friday's Eilers-Dietrich Collins game.
"Until the referees know where they're at, there will be a
lot of arguments." Coach Pomfret agreed that the officials and
players alike will have to "experiment" for a few games)
Close Game Encouraging -
Of Saturday's game, Pomfret said that the players were natur-
1 ally'unhappy, with the loss, but the fact that the game was so close
wast very encouraging.
Ed and Barry Shine
Ed Gushue and Barry Drummond played well for the Birds,
Ed getting 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Barry 9 and 9. Newcomer Dave Way impressed, leading the Birds' scorers, netting 15
points. Ed Pederson, who played his usual steady game, said he
: thought the Birds were heartened by the game, and they will be
rarin' to go on Thursday.
Next Game
Birds meet Cloverleafs, who beat the Athletics twice by 15
: points in exhibition games, on Thursday. The game will be at 8
at the Winston Churchill gym, Heather arid 51st.

Western Washington Vikings upset Thunderbirds 20-3 in
an exhibition game here Saturday before a sparse crowd of
800 fans.
'Birds outplayed the visitors from Bellingham in the first half
racking up ten first downs to the Vikings' three. UBC marched
towards paydirt several times only to have the drives snuffed out
by intercepted passes. Vikings picked off a total of five 'Bird
aerials during the afternoon.
Passes Hurt Birds
Western Washington struck first, using the long pass, a weapon
that has given 'Bird defences much trouble this season. Quarterback Doug Ringenback flipped a 40-yard pass to Len Gargarello
to set up the TD. Ron Ladines plunged over from the two-yard line
for the major score. The convert was missed.
The 'Birds offensive charged back moving deep into Viking
territory. The drive was killed when Jack Halliday nabbed an
errant UBC pass. This was the first of three interceptions that he
made during the game.
On the following play Ringenbach faded back and flipped
another 40-yarder to Gargarello for touchdown number two, and
Stephen Hansen converted to make the score 13-0 Vikings.
Birds Lead in First Downs
Thunderbirds then took the ball and reeled off five consecutive
first downs before the drive stalled. Dave Barker came in and
kicked a 20-yard field goal to make the half-time score 13-3.
'Birds had held a definite territorial edge in the first half. In
the second half, however, Vikings controlled the play as well as
the scoring. They rolled to 10 first downs while the 'Birds were
being held to six.
Ladines picked up his second major late in the third quarter.
Hansen converted to make the score 20-3.
Scoreless Fourth Quarter
The fourth quarter was scoreless and the game ended with
Western Washington leading 20-3.
Outstanding for the 'Birds in this losing effort were fullback
Roy Bianco, end John Barbarie, and halfbacks Gary Bruce and
Gordy Olafson.
Bianco, returning after being injured in the Pacific. Lutheran
game two weeks ago, played a strong game, running from the
offensive fullback spot. He also turned in his usual good effort
in the defensive secondary.
Barbarie Stars
Barbarie, playing offensive end for the first time in several
games, dragged in six passes to pace 'Bird receivers.
Olafson and Bruce played strong two-way games. Olafson
made a fine catch early in the third quarter in another abortive
UBC drive.
Doug Mitchell  also played a good.game  at defensive linebacker. He wasn't the tower of strength that he had been in previous games, however.
Pass Defense
Coach Frank Gnup will probably have his flock concentrating
on pass defense in their remaining practices and in the Homecoming game. They cannot afford to give away the quick touchdowns on long passes that they have in recent contests if they hope
to win the Churchill Cup. :
BIRDS WIN
Sheila Leads
Basketballers
U.B.C. Senior Girls Basketball team beat the Hastings
Senior Business Women's team
33-28 at the Winston Churchill
Gym.
Sheila Ledingham scored 16
points and Sharon McGee 6
points. Sheila's points were
scored by long shots, layups and
free throws. Sharon McGee was
sensational in the rebounds department.
The rest of the team, consisting of Jean McDonald Diane
McPherson, Diane Wilke and
Muriel Whatney, showed lots
of hustle and spirit.
U.B.C. had only four players
on the floor for the last 25
seconds.
The U.B.C. Sr. B Women's
Basketball team beat the Crystal Freez squad 56-15 last Thursday.
Jacque Mjaartman, 12 points,
Ruth Creighton 10 points, and
Lynda Catherwood 9 points,
^ad their team.
U.B.C. lead their opponents
|4 to 0 at quarter time in the
gecond quarter Crystal Freeze
gnanaged to count, bringing the
score to 27-14.
THIRD QUARTER SPARK
>-Thegij-ls really settled down
to play ball in the third quarter
coming up with 18 points.
The Crystal Freeze team
showed some action in the final
quarter and nearly matched
U B.C. scoring.
Scott Captures
Seattle Crowns
Chris Scott, captain af UBC's
Squash Team won the "B"
singles title at the Washington
Athletic Club Invitational championship this weekend.
Scott   came   from   behind   to
edge  out  Seattle's Phil Morgan
3-2.
IAN GETS TO QUARTERS
Ian Campbell, another member of UBC's seven man team
which travelled to Seattle Sunday, advanced as far as the
quarter finals were he was ousted by Seattle's Corney Smith.

Morgan by scores of 10-15 and
13-15.
He came back to take the
next three by scores of 16-13,
15-12 and 15-12.

In weekend rugby action UBC Thunderbirds defeated UBC
Braves 14-9.
The win, Birds' fourth without a loss, moved them into
undisputed possession of first place in the "Miller Cup Series.
Braves, UBC second team, furnished the 'Birds with extremely
Strong opposition. They gave notice that they expect to finish well
up in the standings.
Henderson Strong i
Neal Henderson, strong outside three-quarters, paced the 'Birds
with a try, a penalty goal, and a conversion for nine poinds. Hustling
break Bob McKee, and driving prop Don Shore each scored a try
to round out the 'Birds scoring.
The Braves' scoring was done by Dave Howard, who scored
a try, Gerry Mitchell, who drop-kicked a field goal, and Carl Gus-
tafson, who booted a penalty goal.
In second division play Thursday, UBC Tomahawks edged
UBC's P.E. squad 5-3, in another hard-fought game. Both teams are
competing in the Bell-Irving Cup series.
Henderson of the 'Birds was injured while scoring his try.
X-rays showed that the injury was not serious.
Henderson will probably be forced to join the already injured
Paddy Sloan on the sidelines for the game against North Shore
next Saturday. -»
Low Scores for Birds
It is interesting to note that 'Birds had had only six points
scored againste them in three games before they met the Braves.
Brave s dented their defense for nine. This speaks well for Coach
Howell and his assistants and for the UBC personnel.
Thunderbirds have racked up 74. points this season and have
had only 15 §cored against theni. They had not allowed a try until
Howard of-fee Bravfe-sweat over in Saturday's game,. PAGE EIGHT
