AMS Business Manager
H. B. Maunsell Retires
By VAL HAIG-BROWN
AMS business manager H. B. Maunsell will retire May 1
after eight years service. His decision was announced at the
Student Council meeting Monday night.
Before coming to UBC Maunsell retired from a biwik.
Maunsell     was     hired    eight
years ago by the Student Coun-
* oil   to   stabilize   AMS   finances.
At   that   time   the   AMS   had   a
fifty thousand dollar debt.
In the course of his service
Maunsell contributed the necessary stability to AMS finances
under changing Student Councils The AMS is now fully solvent,
AMS Treasurer Geoff Conway said Monday. "We are very
sorry that Mr. Maunsell has
chosen to retire and very thankful for the guidance and advice
he has given to eight years of
Student Councils."
Maunsell's reason for retirement was the steadily increasing enrollment and the resulting
increase   in   work.
Student Council is advertising for a new manager ami expects to have the position filled
within   a   month.

Prairie Teams Out-talk
UBC On Evangelism
By PAT RUSSELL
Manitoba University speakers talked louder, faster, and
more effectively than Alberta, Saskatchewan, and UBC teams
put together Friday to chalk up their fifth consecutive win in,
the McGoun Cup debates.
Although the judges for the
Debates Friday were "not notoriously prejudiced," UBC did not
place in the annual verbal contest.
Arguing on the necessity of the
Billy Graham method of evangelism to our age, the four Western universities represented by
two teams each, conceded the
cup to Manitoba debators when
they out-talked both Saskatchewan and Alberta contestants.

An  Insult
' The people who write Myron Kuzych's speeches made a
serious mistake in not writing him a new one suitable for an
audience of university students. The speech Kuzych delivered
in Physics 201 last Friday was one of the stupidest diatribes
ever heard on this camrJus and was an insult to the intelligence
of his audience.
Kuzych may be entitled to a good deal of sympathy in his
prolonged fight against unionism's closed shop principle. There
very possibly are many injustices inherent in the closed shop
and in the union's method of trial by erring members. But
Kuzych's performance Friday, was neither enlightening nor
calculated to earn support for his cause.
With arms flailing like a windmill gone mad Kuzych spent
a solid hour delivering an unsurpassingly ignorant attack on
unionism in general. It was a masterpiece of demagoguery in
which the speaker used every ruse in the book to inflame and
mislead his audience.
Walter Reuther, Dave Beck and many other prominent
labour leaders were grouped together by Kuzych under the
head of "labour dictators." These men were pictured as evil
villains who are about to snatch away the last shreds of our
democracy. That catch-all word "democracy" was used a
thousand times if it was used once by Kuzych. If you weren't
for Kuzych you weren't for democracy.
Whenever the initials AFL-CIO-CCL were used they were
invariably followed by the letters LPP and the audience was
mercifully left to draw its own conclusions from that. Abe
Lincoln, the Civil War and the Negro problem in the southern
U.S. were dragged into Kuzych's speech pnd it was obvious that
Kuzych lined himself up with Abe but just what Abe had to
do with the present problem of the closed shop was never
made clear.
However, Kuzych's masterpiece was his charts which he
didn't have time to explain but by the number of lines painted
on them were apparently designed to convey the complicated
structure of a union. The audience was treated to at least ten
of these charts.
The height in stupidity was probably reached when
Kuzych berated organized labour for having decent office
buildings and its leaders for having nice homes. Kuzych is
apparently among those who still believe labour should conduct its business in a broken down shack with its leaders
sitting around in T>shirts and jeans.
Lastly Kuzych pointed to his audience and told them
they, the white collar workers, were the next on labour's list,
and that they needed protection. Whether he meant protection
from higher wages or what he never made clear.
We thought that the ideas expressed by Kuzych and the
men who sponsor and support him went out with Herbert
Hoover. Apparently they haven't. But please Mr. Kuzych next
time you come to UBC plead your cause logically and don't
try to sell a university audience the idea that organized labour
is horribly oppressed and that you have arrived to begin
the liberation.
Outstanding
The past week has probably seen one of the finest events
ever promoted on this campus. We are referring of course to
the Shaw Centennial Which was by any standard an outstanding
job. Dr. Steinberg of the English Department and his hard working committee deserve our thanks arid congratulations for a
magnificent effort.
Perhaps a special word should go to the Players Club and
all those connected with it for their production of "Back to
Methuselah." It would be impossible here to list the problems
arid people involved in this most difficult production. Suffice
it to say the play was a smashing success as was the -whole
Centennial program.

For men only—if there are
any men at UBC.
Stark rudeness is hateful.
But the opposite extreme—
grovelling obsequiousness —
can  likewise  be  painful.
Take the library. The front
door. It used to revolve. Sometimes.
Grad class of '54 ripped it
out, put in the present doors
as a parting gift. We're grateful.
The new doors open easily.
Push—you're in. No trouble.
But you would never think
it the way students—mostly of
the male sex—tenderly, yea,
gingerly hold the door open for
the person following. So sweet.
It brings tears to my eyes.
SELFISH
Few girls do this. • Being
naturally thoughtless and selfish, they rush up the library
stairs, burst through the door
and let it slam bang in the face
of a book-laden artsman who
stops, continues to recite Paradise Lost to himself while absently dabbing away the blood.
Our college men—I use the
term loosely — never burst
through the door. No. They
are just too, too, too polite.
Illicit-like they "slip" the door
open. Then fondly they step
aside and hold it open for the
person, couple, or fraternity
following with the razzle dazzle tender efficient motions of
a practiced butler.
And if I—through some in-
ner compulsion to conform—
unconsciously hold the door
for the guy following. I am
always shocked at the response.
ARTSMAN
He thanks me. Be it arts-
man, lawman, commercinary,
or even a big husky engineer,
he gushes forth his gratitude
so girlishly it rots my gut.
If only he'd forget it, pretend he didn't notice my lapsus
sensus, or just grunt and leave
it at that. But no. He must be
polite—he must pull a Christine—he must simper.
Don't get me wrong. I don't
ask that college males be rude.
Or selfish. I just ask—beg—
that they be men. That they
uphold the fine brutish traditions of the male sex.
Men, leave grovelling to the
women!
Let's resolve to hold the library door open only for children, dogs, pretty co-eds, and
underfed professors.
Let's be men. men.
Porgy   and   Bess
In   the   U.S.S.R.
By WELLES HANGEN
THE N.EW YORK TIMES
In the last three weeks Soviet audiences have had a
heavier dose of American folkways and folk art than ever
before. Despite the inscrutabilities of much in "Porgy and
Bess' for Muscovite or Leningrad theatergoers, the reaction
has been overwhelmingly • warm and sympathetic.
The spirit of Greneva may lie .
in tatters but the pervasive
Gershwin melodies that distinguish this opera have re-created
here—at least temporarily—an
emotional bond between Russians and Americans.
In a country that makes a
fetish of "socialist realism,"
"Porgy and Bess" has startled
and even shocked some Soviet
reviewers by its forthright exposition of life and lust on Catfish* Row. The pleasure at the
departure from neopuritanism
of Soviet society Seems to have
far surpassed any genuine embarrassment over the show's
uninhibited eroticism.
The skillful blending of music, dance and pantomime seems
to have impressed Soviet audiences most deeply. Accustomed
to the exact rhythmical cadence of classical ballet, theatregoers here were fascinated
by the Americans' ingenuity in
making stage action appear to
be the organic outgrowth of
music.
Robert Breen, director of
the Everyman Opera Company,
and Alexander Smallens, Russian-born conductor, have elicited the highest praise for
their mastery of what is to
Russians a new art form.
George Gershwin has long enjoyed popular acclaim in the
Soviet Union. Until now, however, people here knew only
his orchestral works and some
of his songs. "Porgy and Bess'
has enabled them to achieve a
new dimension in understanding an old favorite.
AID TO UNDERSTANDING
There is an enormous interest
here in things foreign, particularly foreign culture. Without
exception Soviet drama critics
have said "Porgy's" engagement would help Russians to
understand better the contemporary American artistic forms.
Some commentators have
felt obliged to draw expected
political conclusions from the
poverty depicted in "Porgy and
Bess." One Leningrad reviewer
lamented "the corrosive effect
of the capitalistic system."
Others have spoken of "the
downtrodden Negroes" and
"life filled with bitter need,
great poverty and small joys."
Sermonizing has been surprisingly rare. Most persons have
accepted the music drama for
what it is—an artistic effort to
dramatize the folkways of a
particular segment of American
society in a particular period.
The language is a powerful
drawback to understanding,
but it probably has been less
important than the total unfa*
miliarity of Soviet audiences
with the social framework of
the happenings along Catfish
Row.
Few Leningraders or Muscovites understood the strange
"happy dust" dispensed with
such fiendish glee by Sportin'
Life. Many actually thought
that the little white packets
were letters.
The abrupt transition in the
picnic scene from a prim religious outing to a bucolic orgy left
many Russians confused. Simi-
larly the dramatic scene in
which the ill-omened buzzard
appears over Porgy's hovel was
incomprehensible to most view*
ers. "It's only the fact.y one
sympathetic critic observed,
"that what they dance has
nothing in common with classic
ballet or with character dances
we are used to, that in the first
moment a spectator is disconcerted by 3 feeling of bewilderment—the more so because the
first scene opens with a very
primitive—'boogie-woogie.'"
TWO CITIES
This is a typical observation.
Bewilderment was especially
noticeable in the first act on
opening night in Leningrad,
when without programs, the audience was struggling to grasp
the thread of the strange happenings on stage.
There was better rapport between the audience and performers when the show opened
in Moscow. Russian programs,
giving the details of the plot,
were available and the audience was more familiar with
American art forms.
But as Izvestia conceded this
week: "Our American guests
have shown that original art
is understandable for people
of all countries."
The government paper echoed
general opinion when it extolled "the ensemble harmony" of
the production, observing that
the performance "lives and
breathes with one life." The
originality displayed by Mr.
Breen in breaking from the
stereotyped operatic devices so
familiar here undoubtedly has
had tremendous impact.

method "lulled the intellect, and

Spencer called her charges

By LEONARD DAVIS
The people of Germany and
Japan have learned that war
does not pay, thinks Prof. Soward who spoke before the United Nations Club at noon Friday,
on his visits to these countries
in 1955.
But, "Almost frightening",
were the words he used to describe the reconstruction in Germany, and the "vitality, determination, and drive" of the German people.
POPULATION
Western Germany, with a
population of over 50 million,
of whom 11 million are refugees from the east, has little
unemployment and is bringing
in Italian workers. The big industrial cities of Hamburg, Munich and Strassburg, are largely
rebuilt, and producing more
than they did before the war.
But the Germans have their
problems. The present work of
reconstruction was carried out
under the leadership of Conrad
Adenauer and an able group of
ministers. The Bonn Republic
has proved very stable, uniting
Catholic and Protestant elements, but Adenauer is an ageing man, and it may be difficult
to find as capable a successor.
UNCERTAIN
Describing Berlin as a "depressed city", Soward said that
life there was so uncertain, that
young people moved to the more
prosperous industrial centres.
Surrounded by Russian-held territory, Berlin is a big worry for
the Germans.
Soward said that he found
little Fascism because the Germans feel that the Nazis were
a disaster for them, and little
Communism because of the Russian treatment of war prisoners.
However, he described conversations   with    Germans    which
showed that .they still think of
themselves as a great and efficient military race. "But I
could never find anyone who
fought on the Western Front,"
said Soward amid laughter.
WORRIED
Western Germans want to see
Germany united and are worried about Communist indoctrination of the youth of the
eastern zone. They are not interested in NATO, feeling that
the North Atlantic is a long way
from them, but the idea of European integration appeals to
them.
Speaking of Japan, Soward
said that he had been surprised
by the industrialization and efficiency of the country. He
found thriving cities, an efficient transportation system, and
big modern factories. "I don't
know how they financed all this
reconstruction," he said.
POSSESSIONS
The country is about the size
of California and supports a
population of 89 million. It is
estimated that six million people
returned to the islands after the
loss of Japanese possessions on
the mainland, and were integrated into the economy. Remarking that the country made
one thing of Malthus' theories,
Soward said that he got an impression of teeming humanity
and lack of privacy. The Japanese birth rate has fallen, largely
owing to a form of legalized
abortion, but the "pressure of
population" remains serious.
CONSCRIPTION
Atomic bombs have shown
Japan that war does, not pay.
The Japanese told Soward that
they are completely against
militarism and conscription,
and do not like the part which
America wants them to play in
the  shifting  balance  of  power
in Asia. Soward thinks they are
"completely sincere".
Industrial development o f
Japan has not altered the structure of Japanese society. Women do not take an active part
in conversations with strangers,
would be surprised if a man
offered them a seat on a bus-
Japanese students remarked on
the unconventionality and individualism of North Americans.
REORGANIZATIONS
The occupying American
forces, now the allies of Japan,
have taken an active part irt
the reorganization of the country, insisting on equal legal
status for women, and widespread popular and higher education. Owing to the structure
of Japanese society. However,
Soward says it will be a long
time before Japan has a constitution stating "We, the people
of Japan . . ."
MILITARISM
Although they deeply resent
American militarism, the Japanese admire American efficiency
and are eager to benefit from
it. They realize the importance
of the United States to their
precarious economy and are un*
likely to do anything that would
seriously annoy their Unc)e
Sam.
Importing one fifth of her
food and eighty-five percent of
her raw products, Japan needs
markets and is courting the
Asian countries she formerly
treated less smoothly. Still regarded with suspicion, she nevertheless wants to play an importance role as "the workshop
of the east", in the new Asia
which is coming into being. Her
people want international respect again, and a chance to
take their place on the United
Nations.
"OF MINDS AND MEN

Environment Basis of Stability
"Society is no longer prepared to allow parents to aggravate the mental health of the
individual," said Prof. E. D.
MacPhee, speaking "Of Minds
and Men" noon Monday.
Prof. MacPhee said that the
main cause contributing to poor
mental   health,   or   inability   to
cope with life, is poor environment in early life.
Prof. MacPnee pointed out
that poor environment does not
necessarily make a person maladjusted but that the overwhelming majority of society's
misfits come from homes with

"And All the Other L's
f   n
By  MARILYN  SMITH
"Our so-called labor leaders
are trying to reconcile despotism with democracy," Myron
Kuzych, stocky, arm-flailing defiant of the* "closed shop dogma", told a student audience
at noon Friday.
Armed with charts, pamphlets, posters and files from his
archives, Kuzych charged that
labor leaders "look upon unions
as their private oyster, a gravy
train, and enter just as Jesse
James did; 'strictly for the payoff."
Kuzych, unemployed since
1943, has tested the legality of
the closed shop in B.C. Supreme
Court, Supreme Court of Canada, and the Privy Council of
England.
He lost his job when he was
Voted out of the North Vancouver shipyards after criticising
the closed shop principle in wartime arbitration proceedings. He
has continued to campaign
against the closed shop and compulsory checkoff of union dues
ever since.
Kuzych said that non-union
members of the general public
are   "unaware  of  the "persecu
tion suffered by union members
because the press and the public are excluded from general
meetings."
"Collision of the 'private
interests of the executive and
the collective interests of the
workers occurs in secret meetings. In the meetings of the Executive Trades Council, in which
the press is included, everybody
is democratic and satisfied,"
Kuzych said.
APPEAL
He closed the Friday meeting
with an appeal to students, who
will hear opposing views next
Friday, to "fight them with a
barrage of questions. Ask them
what they are doing with freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to a fair
trial."
Kuzych returned Monday at
noon for a question period. In
answer to the first question, he
stated that compulsory checkoff of union dues is reducing
workers to "faceless, voiceless
money machines".
"But why seek bloodshed?"
Kuzych was asked. "My fight
may have cost money but it did
not spill blood," he answered.

Kuzych stated that, if "rank
and file members of closed shop
unions" were given the opportunity to vote on union principles they would support his
claims.
He was asked: "when the
matter was raised the Boilermakers' union supported their
present leadership. Doesn't that
mean that your case is closed?"
EXECUTIVE
"If the executive ever gave
me a chance to state my case
and if, by a secret ballot not
supervised by executive scrutineers the laborers voted
against me, then my case would
be closed.
"However, that never happened. I stood up at one meeting, where I was allowed five
minutes, and pointed out that
$2,000 out of the $3,000 union
dues was not accounted for.
"I was accused of being an
enemy of the working class and
told by Stewart (union executive) that I could not enter a
meeting again until I had
changed my attitude. I was then
expelled from the union."
SUPPORTED
"But the union members supported their leaders—is that not
enough?" the questioner persisted.
"They have had no fair opportunity to say whom they
support," Kuzych roared.
"That's a lie, Mr. Kuzych,"
he was answered.
"Give me proof that it is a
lie—I have the facts of my
case,"   Kuzych  charged.
"But the highest court in the
Commonwealth ruled against
you."
"I did not come here to discuss my case, but if you look
into it you will find that the
court did not rule against me,"
Kuzych answered.
In answer to another question
Kuzych stated that the Boilermakers and Carpenters AF of L
decided to prohibit all further
meetings of the membership in
order to 'throw out a few Communists'.
"This is McCarthy ism,"
Kuzych charged. "The LPP may
merit expulsion, but not at the
expense of the working man's
rights."
Kuzych's appearance was
sponsored by the campus Civil
Liberties Union, which will
sponsor a speaker holding opposing views next Friday noon.

Composer Calls  For Culture
Industrial World Needl
Good Music—Copelan<
By BOB EDGAR
Music is just as important
a factor in an industrial economy as is business.
These words summarize the
opinion of Aaron Copeland,
one of America's foremost
composers and conductors, on
modern musical trends.
Mr. Copeland said that he
likes to come and speak at
Universities because he meets
his future audiences there; it
is to us that he must turn for
acceptance and appreciation.
The Western world has no
tradition of great musicians,
he said. The European who
shows promise in music has a
great body of fine artists behind him. That background
makes it easier for the modern composer to write naturally. American writers are
rather heroic because they
have no background, but are
writing out of their own experience.
Most modern composers
look like businessmen. Their
works reflect their appearance," yet they are able to
compete with Brahms and
Mozarl. The criterion of a
great musician is that he can
express something that no
other person can. To be the
first composer of a style is
no honor; to be the last, is.
Modern advertising continually tells us that everything
that wc buy or use must be
the very best. We have been
trained to think the same of
music. This principle does not
apply to music. It is more
important that we got some
reaction from a composition
than that we get the maximum reaction from it.
Creative artists live a life
of self-discovery. A positive
outlook is necessary to great
meaning. It is only as the
composer writes with a positive outlook that his music
becomes great. The success of
a piece of music is the only
thing that gives him real ir
spiration.
In speaking of the histoH
of music, Mr. Copeland sai<[
that the old masters did no{
have to face the same prot
lems that a modern composes"
has. Mozart wrote his pieces)
to be heard by only a fev
people, most of whom hd
knew well. The audience was
willing to listen to what h«,
had to say.
Modern writers are facec
by the problem of writing fod
mass means of communical
tion. They must please a largd
group whom they do no|
know personally. The moderr
audience wants to have musk
for diversion.
Musical education is taking
greater importance in Amerl
ica today than it ever has bel
fore.   Governments   are   sup)
porting   music   to   a   degree
thought impossible fifty years;
ago. The public has not quite
lost its feeling that art should
not  be  taught   in  the  school]
and  so   it  must  still   be  dis-j
guiscd under the name of edu-i
cation. The important thing is|
that it is being taught.
The    music   collector   whol
collects   recordings   is   also   al
new addition to the world of]
music. The collector can buy
the   music  that   he  wants  to
hear and then he can arrange
the program in  the way that
he wants to hear it. By doing [
this, many modern people are I
finding new appeal in concert
music.
Music has been commercialized by recordings and by
radio, television, and motion
pictures to keep up to the
pace of a great industrial nation. We must all be careful
to cultivate and keep our ap-1
preciation of great music j
alive, even when we can hear
it so casually. It is just as
important as any other thing
which contributes to making
life more worth living. REVIEWER SNORES:

One Short Hour
Shaw Play
Too Much
For Cast?
By SYLVIA 8HORTHOUSE
It was a good production, an
admirable undertaking for a
university group, and well received by an appreciative audience. It was staged with simple,
imaginative and impressive sets
and very colorful and well-conceived costuming. But was "Back
To Methuselah", Shaw s longest, perhaps most philosophically profound and windiest play,
too great a demand on a student
cast?
The play, in my opinion, not
the best of Shrw's works, was
tackled by directors Miss Dorothy Somerset, Miss Joan Chapman and Robert Reid and the
UBC Players Club with a great
deal of imagination and industry.
The highlight performance of
the evening came from David
Hughes who showed amazing
perception of age and whose
vocal delivery and comic timing
were brilliantly executed.
Sharon Scadding was very
Impressive as the serpent, especially in the opening scene
of the play, with her graceful
serpent-like movement. A sensitive and colorful performance
was also given by Danica
d'Honte as Eve, while Rodney
Eve as Adam, with rather stiff
movement, tended to sing his
lines in one Jtey.
In spite of a crisp pace and
creative setting, the opening act
of the play was not as strong
as it might have been, but was
rather strained, mostly because
of classical and visually self-
conscious stage direction.
The unity of the production
was partly destroyed by parts
two and three which suffered
from a dragging pace and
floppy, forced movement, especially in the former act. John
Bovey,  as Lubin  turned  in the
By MICHAEL AMES
When Shaw said something about it would take a damn
fool to stage "Back to Methuselah" he should have perhaps
added that it would also take a damn fool to sit through such
~^a performance.
To justify such a long play—
briefified version took four hours
—the author should say something, be witty, and appear clever; furthermore, the cast and
directors should be extremely
capable. It is too bad UBC's
production last Friday and Saturday did not quite fill the bill.
The directing of "Back to
Methuselah" was good alright;
the cast, also, was good, in an
amateurish way. But the play
itself made me wish I had
brought more than one bottle
along to brighten up the intermissions.
WITTY
Shaw is interesting when he
is short; he can be witty and
extremely clever; but he, like
many writers, should not over-do
a good thing. I still can see no
reason why Shaw had to take
so long to say what little he
actually did have to say in "Back
to Methuselah."
He stopped being witty and
clever after the first hour. He
became duller and the seat harder at an alarmingly quick rate
thereafter.
So much for Shaw. The directors and technicians had a
big job and they did it we'll.
The projected scenery, however,
although nice and all that, seldom appeared more than just a
picture on the wall behind the
play which was taking place on
the stage. Projected scenery has
yet to be fully integrated into
the play it is supposed to complement.
AMATEUR
More of the acting cast would
have done better had they stopped behaving like amateur
Shakespearean players and performed their roles properly. Also, they should not have been
so anxious, like Peter Smith
who played Burge, to over-act
the part.
Smith,, who appeared woundup like a coil spring, sputtered
all over the stage. It can become
tiresome when it is in company
with a lot of other sputtering
coil springs.
Dave Hughes who played the
Elderly Gentleman was one of
the few who gave sincerity and
depth to his portrayal. Another
stand-out,  and  one  of the  few
best   performance   in   part ;two, ( who  was  truly  humorous,  was
but the contrast between the
two 20th century politicians,
played by Bovey and Peter
Smith, was not striking enough.
The best two scenes of the
production occured in the middle of the play, both from a
technical point of view and acting calibre. As well as David
Hughes, who commanded the
stage at all times, Richard Irwin was very convincing as the
petty and self-concerned envoy.
Ihe longest and final act of
the piny was excellently directed and well carried out with a
fast moving, even pace. Especially commendable were the
vivid performances of Carol
Bowen and Peter Brockington.
Credit is also due to Barbara
Schwenk for excellent delivery
of the very long and profound
final speech of the play.
Dale Johnson as Burge-Lubin.
REALISTIC
Carol Bowen, who is just as
pretty as all the other girls in
the cast, also turned in a realistic performance as The Newly-
Born.
Characteristic of the whole
play, however, was Barbara
Schwenk, who put on a decently
good performance as Lilith, but
she never had a chance. Lilith
made the last speech in the play,
and it went on, and it went on,
and on, and on, and on . . . and
on.
Never have I seen a play with
so many anticlimaxes and build
ups to new ones that never come,
as "Back to Methuselah." Let
us hope it does go back to Methuselah, or back to somewhere,
and let UBC go back to Shakespeare, for which it is better
suited.

Tuesday, January 24, 1956 UBC  Braves  Retain   Bell-Irving   Cup
To Overshadow 25-3 Win By Varsity
; ' By BRUCE ALLARDYCE
UBC Braves captured the
Bell-Irving Cup for the second
consecutive year Saturday, as
they defeated Rowing Club seconds 20-3 on the sodden Aggie
field. In Miller Cup play, Varsity continued its string of
crushing victories in preparation
for the forthcoming McKechnie
and World Cup Series by overpowering Vindex Club 26-3 in
the Stadium.
SKINS IN ONLY LOSS
Frank Gnup's rugby-playing
football men continue to enjoy
great success, as they stopped
Ex-Tech Seconds 8-0. Tomahawks battled to a 3-3 draw at
Connaught Park with Mera-
lomas, while Redskins suffered
the only defeat, losing to Kats
by a converted try to nil.
Tom Anthony and Gary Sinclair were the sparkplugs of the
Brave triumph, Antony kicking two field goals and Sinclair
a field goal and a try.
Doug Martin tallied the initial
try for the Braves, taking an
inside   pass   from   Mike   Cham
bers, but Barker's conversion
attempt from tho sideline was
wide. Anthony then kicked the
first of three demoralizing field
goals, letting go from the 20-
yard line while the oarsmen
watched helplessly.
Sinclair made the score 9-0 at
the half, circling in front of the
posts before cutting loose with
a low, hard drop-kick which
just skimmed over the crossbar.
Soon after the halt, Anthony
booted field goal number three
over the frustrated heads of the
Rowing Club XV. The rowers'
John MacLean scored their only
try following a scrum on the
goal line, raising the total number of points scored on the
Braves in nine games to nine
points.
Braves' backline handled the
ball well in the rain and mud,
and Sinclair completed a smart
movement scoring between the
posts with Barker converting.
Moments later on an identical
play, John Mulberry tallied the
final try, driving over in the
corner for the'20-3 count.
Playing brilliantly in the first
twenty minutes, the Varsity XV
built up an 18-3 margin by half
ALBERT  LAITHWAITE
time. Dave Morley scored the
first Varsity try, when Ted
Hunt broke through the Vindex
back line and passed to McLeod,
who set up Morley.
Jack   Maxwell    then    tallied
three consecutive trys, two of
which were converted by Mor-
ford.
Ted Hunt and Derek Vallis
each scored trys for the Birds
in the second half, although the
Varsity team relaxed slightly.
Coach Albert Laithwaite has no
worries in regard to injuries;
Saturday's only casualty being
Roger Kronquist's uneasy stomach.
PAPOOSES LIKE MUD
The Papooses proved they
were no slouches at this game
of rugby, either, although the
sloppy field was to their advantage, and being the heavier
team, they could shove, drive,
scramble and push to their
heart's content. Not even one
penalty after another could stop
them.
Laurie Tuttle and Bruce
Eagle scored trys for the Gnup-
men, and Ron Stewart converted once.
In the Tommies-Meralomas
contest, George Haye scored the
only try for UBC.

Fitba Birds Run
Streak To Ten
By LORD TREVOR-SMITH
' The varsity soccer team won their eighth game of the
season and ran their undefeated streak to ten games by
beating Royal Oaks 2-1 last Saturday at rain-soaked Killarney
Park. The win moved the Birds into the Third Round of th*
Provincial Cup play.
The Birds opened the scoring
at 35 minutes of the first half
after both teams had narrowly
♦ missed scoring. Ernie Kuyt
stopped a poor goal kick at the
edge of the penalty area and
slipped the ball to Bruce Ash-
down who scored.
ASHDOWN STARRY
Five minutes later Jack But-
terfield put Ashdown in the
clear again. Bruce beat the
goalie on a sizzling shot on the
goalie's short side. For Bruce
Ashdown this was one of the
finest games he has played for
Varsity since joining the team
last year.
The Oaks got their only goal
ten minutes after the half on a
penalty shot. Bob Shenton hit
the crossbar on his first attempt
but was awarded another try
as the referee thought UBC
goalie Clive Hughes had moved
before   the   ball   was   kicked.
Shenton made his second shot
good.
DEFENCE GOOD
For the Birds, the defence
played a standout game. At times
however, it was difficult to tell
who was "playing defence. Late
in the second half the Birds contented themselves in playing a
defensive game and seemed to
have seven or eight fullbacks at
a time, It seemed strange that a
team with one of the best forward lines in the league,should
revert to this type of play.
For the UBC team, left fullback Ian Todd, goalie, Clive
Hughes and captain, Bud Fred-
erickson played sparkling games.
CHIEFS WIN
On Sunday at Bradner the
UBC Chiefs of the Fourth Division Mainland League shut out
Bradner 1-0. John Isberg registered his first shutout of the
year. Jergen von Schilling scored
the only goal to give the Chiefs
their first win since Bruce Ashdown took over as coach.

they trimmed the Vikings 49-
39 in the Hyde part of the act.
The split with Western gives
the Thunderbirds a record of
three wins against five losses
in Evergreen Conference play,
and the number of wins are an
all-time UBC record high. All
three of the wins have come at
home and four of the five losses
on road trips. UBC got another
chance to.win their first "away"
game in Bellingham against
Western last night. (See page
one for details of the contest)
IT WAS TERRIBLE
UBC's 52-36 loss had to be
seen to be believed, and it was
fortunate not many UBC supporters were on hand to see it.
Although the Birds fought hard
and were none too lucky in
their shots, it does not explain
their loss to a team that played
no better than could be expected
of a squad that had lost seven
straight.
Thunderbirds never seriously
threatened Western and 'were
down 23-15 at the half. They
had no offence and would not
have had 36 points but for
Viking coach Jake Hubbard
whose vociferous applause of the
Birds drew his team a number
of technical fouls.
John McLeod led the UBC
"offence" with 8 points. H6ward
Brooks and Aldo Anderson scored 20 and 15 respectively to
spark the Western win.
LEAD ALL THE WAY
Saturday afternoon was' a different story. The Thunderbirds
got off to a fast start on the
efforts of Barry Drummond and
McLeod, and were never headed.

Lose Match
ToNanaimo
By DWAYNE ERICKSON
Once again, experience proved
the victor over youth as the
Nanaimo Clippers whipped the
Thunderbird hockey team 6-2
in an exhibition match at Na«
naimo  last  Saturday  night.
The hosting squad, made up
mostly of past professional
stars, paid tribute to the Birds,
saying that it was their toughest
game of the season.
Gordie Mundle opened • the
scoring for the Birds at 3:00
minutes of the first period, but
glory wasn't enjoyed for long:
as Nanaimo pushed two pucks
past Bird goalie Howie Thomas
before the first period ended.
In the second frame, the Clip*
pers held UBC scoreless and at
the same time produced what
proved to be the winning goal.
Art Pearson added the Birds'
second and final tally in the
final period while Nanaimo
notched three insurance count*
ers.
The clean, hard - checking
game was a fine example of
what the varsity squad could
do as they went all out for a
win; but stars like Red Carr and
Angelo Defelice, who maybe
couldn't skate as fast, had
it all over the Birds in their
terrific checking and stick hand-
ling.
UBC outshot the Clippers in
the first period but were underdogs in the second and third.
The Birds were robbed of sev«
eral almost sure goals when the
Nanaimo goalie made some
near-impossible saves.
Goalie Howie Thomas and de>
fensemen Bob Gilhooley and
Bob Geigrich were the top three
stars for the Birds.

/nco Metals af work in Canada
Copper Is one of 14 different elements
obtained from Inco ores. Inco produces
over 250,000,000 pounds of copper a year;
More than half of this copper goes to
Canadian manufacturers. Rainspouts and
hundreds of other copper products are made
in Canada-from Inco copper. Copper rainspouts like this one usually last longer than
the buildings they are installed om
Here's how rainspouts
made from INCO COPPER
help provide jobs for
thousands of Canadians
Jobs are created by making the things people want.  Here's how
Inco copper helps provide jobs for thousands of Canadians:
|   At Inco, Canadian workmen mine the ore. Then they
concentrate and smelt the ore, finally producing refined
copper as cakes, cathodes and wire bar. About 18,000
men and women are employed by Inco in Canada.
O Canadian manufacturers buy refined copper from Inco
and roll it into sheets and rod. Several thousand people are
employed by these companies.
O Then from the copper sheets, workmen in Canadian sheet
metal companies fashion copper rainspouts like this one.
£L Canadian contractors, employing Canadian workmen,
install these rainspouts on Canadian homes.
From the ore to the ultimate consumer's product, hundreds of
items like this rainspout are made from Inco copper that
never leaves Canada.
