Training   Difficulties
Cleared By Sciencemen
Press, censorship reared its head on.the U.B.C. campus
Wednesday when Ubyssey and downtown reporters were
ousted from a mass meeting of Science students who met with
Colonel G. M. Shrum of the C.O.T.C. to iron out difficulties
concerning military training.
Condemning Ubyssey editorial on
military training, as a "mistake"
Colonel Shrum advised the meeting to
ask   reporters   to   leave.
"We want to discuss these matters
with perfect frankness", he told tho
Though the meeting was shrouded In secrecy,, a committee appointed by the sciencemen announced that oil difficulties had
been cleared up to the satisfaction
of oil concerned. No major change
will bo made In military training,
they said.
Proposals frem the floor suggesting
(1) that tri-.inlng be postponed till
the summer. 12) that the entire six
hours be taken in one -evening, and
(3) that the course be split into two
three-hour periods were voted down
by the assembly, who appeared satisfied   wilh   the   present,  set-up.
Rex      Parker,      S.M.U.S.*    president,
told the  Ubyssey that  the main difficulty   resulted   from   lack    of   knowledge   concerning   military   courses   a-
mong the sciencemen.    With the situation clarified Sciencemen are content
to  accept   the   courses   as   they   stand.
Some   members   of   the   faculty
will  change  from  Officers  Training  to  Basic Training,  It  was  Indicated,   ln   order   to   lighten   the
burden of their courses.
Questions   of   academic    credit    for
training   were    dispensed    with    after
Colonel Shrum had pointed out that
no  Science-men   could  afford  to  drop
any     course     without     injuring     his
Nativity Play
Cast Announced
An innovation in th-e Christmas
Play presentation of the Player's Club
will be the production of a medieval
Miracle Play entitled "The Pageant
of the  Shearmen and th-e  Taylors."
This play, telling the Biblical story
of the birth of Christ was written
In the early Sixteenth Century by
by members of the guild of Shearman and Taylors in Coventry, England.
A wagon, carrying the actors and
used as their stage, would start on
its meandering course through the
town at six In the morning stopping
at   every   corner   to   offer   its pageant.
The play, which has been adapted
to present-clay stage requirements,
retains its original qualities of simplicity,   sincerity   and   reverence.
The cast will feature Phyllis Milli-
gan as Mary, Dick Bibbs as Joseph,
Norman Lloyd as Isarah, John Carson as Gabriel, Arthur Hill as Herod,
Weldon Hanbury as the Messenger,
John Sansum, John Seyer and Geo.
Speakman as the Shepherds, and
Lionel Bakony, Bill Dawe, and Bill
Gilmour,  as  the  Kings.

For Engineers
According to a decision by Colonvl
Shrum and tho Band's representatives, the Varsity Band will act as a
military band for U.B.C. Under this
arrangement men in basic training
who play in tho band will be given
credit for one hour of the six thoy
must   put   in   each   week.
New members, both men and worn-
•en, will be welcome. Men do not
need to take basic training to be
eligible. Please watch the Quad notice board for date and place of rehearsals.
Festivities  Planned
For Heap Big Pow-wow
Rally Will Feature Indian Village Idea When
Alumni Return To Campus Next Week
For one brief weekend, the Varsity campus will be an
Indian village of teepees and totems and its usually studious
inhabitants a tribe of wild and woolly Redmen in a mad whirl
of Homecoming celebrations. The shadow of war will be forgotten as one exciting event follows another for the enjoyment
of undergrads and alumns alike.

I anonunced Wednesday night following a meeting of the University Senate.
Dr. de Pencier, recently-retired
Archbishop of New Westminster, will
also deliver tbe Congregational Address, following which 95 students
will receive degrees and diplomas.
Since the inception of the University in 1915, Dr. de Pencier has given
excellent service as a member of the
Senate. He was largely responsible
for the erection of Anglican Theological College on this campus, end
has ben president of - the college
since 1925.
The University of British Columbia
will confer degrees upon 72 graduating students at th'3 fall ceremony.
Those who have successfully completed the Social Service requirements
will   receive   diplomas.
Following is a list of candidates for
c'.'egrees, passed by the University
Senate Wednesday. It does not include the names of 36 students who
completed their requirements for degrees at the summer session.

been  done  In  this  respect  by  the
co-eds    of    other    universities    In
Canada,   U.B.C.   girls   have   been
rather slow In getting started. Women'a war work began at Queen's,
Manitoba,   and   McGiil   some   two
or three weeks ago—almost at the
opening of the session,  In fact.
However, tbe co-eds of Alberta can
lay   claims   to   being    tho   first   to    do
anything   definite   to   aid  the   war   effort.    To    quote    their    campus   newspaper. Tho Gateway, "at  the University of Alberta," the mechanism of war
has   long   been   rolling."
Not cont-ent with spending the summer in idleness, the girls banded together to send vast quantities of
clothing and foodstuffs to aid refugees and soldiers of war-torn Europe.
Proof of the value of their work
are the many messages of undying
thanks received from those whose
misery has been abated by the 'efforts
of    these    self-sacrificing   students.
U.B.C. girls will have to put every
effort forward now, if they wish to
parallel the excellent work which
has already been done by co-eds in
other  provinces.

Committee To Set
Dates For Meetings
Of All Campus Clubs
In an attempt to standardize dates
for the clubs meetings, a committee
waa appointed consisting of Victoria
Brown, President of the Cercle fran-
cais; Val BJarnson, Secretary of the
C.S.A.D.C., and Bircham van Home,
President of the Varsity Band, to
draw up folders for club meetings.
C.O.T.C. time-tables have taken up
■.-very afternoon except Wednesday.
This leaves only one day for Club
Meetings, making it impossible to
hold all  Assemblies.
Officers were elected at the Minor
L.S.E. meeting hold yesterday. Bob
Bc.nner, president of the L.S.E., Is
chairman and Harry Warner is the
newly   elected   secretary.
"Children and savages have an Instinctive feeling for design," said
John Shadbolt, Vancouver artist, in
a talk on primitive art Wednesday,
to the Social Problems Club. "They
are intent on one idea only, with
the result that their drawings are

The speaker outlined the various
reasons for the artistic urge in the
savage and sketched a typical primitive chawing, showing the inherent

Radio  Club
Friday, 7.30
The first general news broadcast of
tho Radio Society will be October 18
at 7:30 p.m. over CJOR. Robert Wallace, Harry Warley, Bill Wilbur, and
Albert Miller, will conduct the program for this week. The broadcast
will   be weekly.
As yet no further program is definite, though it is probable that the
dramatic program, Cavalcade of
U.B.C. will be on or around November 15.
Almost as interesting as the museum, and very nearly as neglected by
the average student Is the Lost and
Found department ln Brock Hall.
Tess Rader has seen everything from
overcoats and men's shorts (gym
shorts!) to the fraternity pins drift
in, to Ue in state until some kind
soul thinks to come and claim the
lost  articles.
If people don't want their clothes,
why don't they give them to the
Salvation Army instead of cluttering
up the I* and F. department? And
if you ever lost a text book book, and
don't claim it, maybe you could buy
it again from the Book Exchange, because that's where wayward books
go  at  the  end  of the  term.
Also in the collection ls the usual
quota of bottomless pens and topless
pens and pencils and sun glasses and
locks and watches—nothing very important, but someone must belong to
them, don't you think they want the
comforts of home, someplace to go
into,  to get  out of the  rain?

In Coming Week
Arrangements for the Westbrook
Memorial Service to be held sometime next week are being made by
Prof. F. G. C. Wood, assisted by
Senior Class President Derek McDer,
The   service    Is   held    annually    in
honour of Frank Fairchild Wesbrook,

prize of one dozen bottles of Coke
goes to Alan Wallace who suggested
"Alr-Rald" because he was a blackout, but the judges decided to turn
the  name  around.
To quote Jack McKlnlay: "He was
born In the dark" (Jack knew Blackout's mother).
If you haven't seen Blackout visiting
hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. in
the Caf or Kitchen. It is easiest to
catch him at meal times, which for
him   are   between   the   above  hours.

would rather sit under a kitchen
table and pick up the tasty tid-blts
that continually come his way, and
which   account  for   his  rotund   being.

Student Services
Friday, October 18, 1940
As the universities become more technical and more specialized, students are apt to
forget that they should be gaining the means
of a fuller life at college. There should be
available in the universities opportunities for
forming a philosophy of life so that the students
graduating might be able to meet the problems
of a complicated and difficult life successfully.
These oportunities exist on this campus
in the three religious groups, and In a few of
the philosophy courses. But the great majority of the students do not take advantage of
such opportunities. The few who do, have
equipment for life that cannot be had elsewhere, and they will show this advantage all
through  their lives.
Queens University has met the problem
with a University Church Service Commis-
sio. This commission, composed of nine students and four faculty members, sponsors six
services each year upon the campus. They
arrange to have speakers representing the
various denominations for these services. The
actual services are organized by the students,
and are evidently well attended. The services are supported by the collections made at
them, although the University pays a fee to
the speakers.
We believe that the Student Christian
Movement, the Varsity Christian Union, and
the Newman Club should be able to organise
something of the kind on this campus. The
combined Easter service last year was an example of what could be done. If a well-known
speaker were brought out here, and the service well advertised beforehand, there is no
reason why the Auditorium should not be
filled   with   students.
Members of the Musical Society, or other
musical people interested in such services,
could provide music. Of course it would be
important to get a speaker with a real message
for the students, inspirational and evangelical
in type.
There is certainly no harm in trying such
an experiment. If the executives of the
groups mentioned above could meet, co-operation should smooth out the difficulties that
may arise. Several members of the faculty
would probably be willing to help in the venture. If it succeeds, it will be well worth
We hope that the suggestion of the Arts
Mens Undergraduate Society for mixers in
the Brock Memorial Building will be followed
by action very soon. To be valuable, such
mixers should be held fairly early in each
term before the questions of examinations,
essays, and accompanying headaches, come up.
A great many students will not have the
time for elaborate social functions this year,
and probably as many will not have the money.
Mixers arc a form of entertainment, inexpensive, and not particularly heavy on time, that
will  be popular  with  all.
They will also tend to do away with the
distinction that is growing up in this University between "society" and "non-society"
groups. It i.s extremely unfortunate that any
such distinction has appeared, but it is here
and seems to centre around the distinction between the fraternity-sorority-wealth groups
and tho non-fraternity, non-sorority, groups.
Members of the latter group often have little
money for formal clothes, automoibles, corsages, late .suppers, and all the rest. Mixers
will bring the two groups together, and the
University   will   be   the   gainer.
This College Whirl
By Cycle
Psychology has long been regarded by
many writers, including some professors, as a
subject which is worthy of consideration. It
is regarded as a subject which is worthy of
study. People write books about It. Profes-
hors lecture on some phase on it. "Bootleggers"
like Morcell, Carnegie, and Jostrow popularize scientific psychology, telling a psycopathlc
world how to Win Friends and Influence
People, Streamline Your Mind, or Keep Fit.
It must be reassuring for a fellow or a girl
to know that they can achieve social security,
poise, charm by following some simple rule
handed down, as a legacy, from one psychol-
oger to another. But, in spite of the efforts of
these men to make psychology more digestible
and appealing, many people regard it as mysterious and eccentric. And also psych professors.
I was talking to a Scienceman the other
day who, in his own way, was interested in
the findings and theories of psychology. He,
however, questioned the validity of the findings of experimental psychology, which dealt
with actions of animals only. To be of value,
this Redshirt proclaimed, psychology should experiment with human lives, human, dilemnas
and the solutions thereof. I answered that
applied psychology dealt extensively with human relations; and that it attempted to teach
maladjusted persons how to adjust themselves
so that they could live normal happy lives.
He was impressed as most Sciencemen are.
This preamble leads more or less to the
story of the Engineers and the Burden of the
C.O.T.C. Much has been written the past
week about the strenuous load some of the
redshirts are carrying this year because of the
compulsory military training on the C.O.T.C.
We even had a streamer in the Vancouver Daily
Province for every man, woman, and child in
the province to read. And an Ubyssey editorial.
On Wednesday noon the Sciencemen and
Colonel Shrum, Commanding officer of the
C.O.T.C. held an informal chat to discuss timetables, and credits, to see where remedies could
be affected, and to record just what the actual
beef was. The beef, ladies and gentlemen,
boiled down to this, as far as I can figure out:
Some of the more versatile Redshirts,
lamented the fact that they could not carry on
the extra-curriculars of last year. That fact
is quite evident. All you've got to do is to find
out why the persons supporting the beef are
doing so. Psych says there is a motive behind
all  things—even  a  psych   professor.
Now Colonel Shrum talked to the boys and
told them what the requirements of the Department of National Defence were. Six
hours a week training for all physically fit
male studnts. He advised them, as he has
been quoted before, that engineers who feel
the burden of C.O.T.C. should take the Basic
Furthermore Colonel Shrum and
Rex Parker, S.M.U.S. prexy, asked for
suitable suggestions with regard to the
timetables. Not one suggestion was acceptable to the assembly. Not one suggestion was meritorious or logical.
One suggested four hours lectures straight
in one night—that was too much for even the
most hard-worked Redshirt. This suggestion
was amended to a three hour sitting and one
hour on Saturday atfernoon. The idea was
scorned like the first. Another fifth year
fellow advocated postponment of training until the end of the year. His idea failed to
The result of the meeting was just
this: Timetables will be switched to suit
the majority. Suggestions which are suitable to the majority will be followed if prac
tical. The majority^ were evidently satisfied with present arrangements. The vocal
minority had their chance to say something pertinent. They said nothing.
If the redshirts allow themselves to be
swayed by a minority whose motives might be
considered questionable, then it would be a
good thing if the Faculty of Applied Science
gave a course in applied psych., with emphasis
on motives, desires and politics.
Freshman Freddie
Writes Homme To Pa
Dear  Pa:
You know. Pa, life sure waa slow
in Old Dead Cow Canyon. What
you ought to do, is to get out of Ma's
clutches and come down here and be
one ot the boys for awhile. But it
sure isn't all clover—I guess in some
ways Old Dead Cow wasn't so slow
after all—anyway, I guess some
things just ain't the same here, if
your'e to believe the Discipline Committed.
You aee, Pa, it'a this way. Remember last letter how I told you
about the Engineers who told me
what a swell vole. I have? Well,
right away I rips over to the muclcal
club here and I guess I sure must be
something special 'cause after I'd
sung a few notes, the guy told me
I'd better be a technical member.
You better tell Ma about that because ahe alwaya wanted me to sing
in the church choir but they sure
was a sissy crowd.
Anywoys, they have a formal dance
in this here club and all the new
guys like m_ has to put their name
in a draw to see what girl they take.
Sort of to make things more friendly-
But, gee, Pa, when I seas the girl
I'm to take, I'm not so enthusiastic.
But, I thinks well, poor girl, maybe
she'll never get to go to a party with
a good looking guy like m? again
und I remembers what Ma told me
about being chivalrous (that long
word la just to show yovi that an
education isn't being wasted on me,
I'm not going high-hat on you or
ay thing), to women so 1 decides to
tuk. this babe, even though she sure
reminds me of that old squaw in Old
Dead Cow that got stuck in between
the   seats   of   tho   train   that   time.
After a while, I gets discouraged
so I stops thinking about it. So one
night I'm sitting sort of lonely-like,
except for this Throe Star turpentine
thing, getting over my troubles. And
•everything's beginning to look sort
of pink-like—you know the way it
clous—and I forgets all my worries
like the blonde that sits next to me
in French and the medical exam I
have   to  have.
Suddenly, someone knocks on the
door and in stamps this Musical Society dame. Just then I remembers
that I'm supposed to be taking her
out that night. So she tells me atmlike to get dressed and to get thai
repulsive smell of alcohol off me—
now, Pa, I always thought it smelt
kind of nice but I guess tastes differ
or sho was a Temperance gal or
But I guess she doesn't trust me
cause she waits for me in the hall,
marches me Into the car and sort of
keeps an eye on me specially when
I was telling a cute little blonde
what  a  hang   of  a   good guy   I   am.
Anyway, Pa, that night I meets a
guy who says he's going to be a
mining engineer so I tells him about
your mine up In Old Dead Cow. And,
gee,   we're pals  right  away.
You know, Pa, the guys-, here have
sort of clubs, kind of like the Forty
Beer League back home. They all
sit together, borrow on-- another's
cars, cigarettes and gals. It sure is
swell for me because sometimes they
let me take out their left over girls
in   their   car.
But they sure think I'm a hang of
a good guy. They're always rolling
me cigarettes and having me over
for tea and introducing me to
beautiful   women.
Anyway, I guess I sure must have
i-omething there because the guys
who sit at the table next to theirs
in the Caf begins to get friendly too.
Anyway, I go on a party with these
iuys and flrst thing I know I'm at
the   other   guy's  frat   house.
We   kind   of   sneak   around   in   the
:lark,   'cause  they're   all   asleep   and  I
falls  over  their  chairs and  clown the
, basement   stairs   'til   I   begins   to   get
I gets so sore that I goes upstairs
where I finds a poor little guy sitting
up in bed kind of poring over some
dame's picture. That sort of makes
me   sick—I   don't    mind   guys   appre
ciating women's good looks but this
worshipping 'stuff—maybe I'm just
the dominant male type. It made me
so mad to see him lowering man's
prestige that I  goes berserk.
I rushes at him, drags him out of
bed and dumps him ln the bathtub
where I turns on the shower and
leaves him th.re cooling his passions—poor   little  guy.
Next day is Sunday and I know,
Pa, that Ma thinks I ought to go to
church but 1 guess a guy mtisn't
take part ln too many extra currlcular  activities like the dean says.
But I got up at noon to go to a tea
these Alfalfa Pies are having. I'm
sort of scared when 1 walks in in
case they thinks I was too rough on
the poor little guy last night. But I
guess they think I'm pretty good because even their big football player
hands me tea kind of m.ek like and
he even puts a cigarette in my mouth
and lights it and tells me how strong
I am.
I felt sort of embarassed and told
him that maybe he didn't know it
but he could break ma in half with
one hand. He tells me that that's
alright and that I'll And out just how
tough he ls when. I'm a pledge and
a   lot   of   other   things   beside

Only the refreshing odour of the

whiff and you're out stiff) on the
Bookstore   clerk's   chestnut   ring,
lets kept Oscar's Inadequate knees
from  collapsing when he grasped
the Idea  that the corpse was no
longer ln the cash register.
His heart had been set on Rinding
the Juicy mess in the Bookstore, ond
on explaining loftily to Police Chief
Appleyard    how   the   murderers   had
done their grisly work.   But now he
waan't going to be famous after all,
for  heck   durn  it,  there   wasn't  any
Ho turned as he alwaya did in emergencies to the dive ln the Brick
Building that was the headquarters
of the Dirty Rag. Th.re he oould
relax ln the loving presence of the
glamorou3 Pub Secretary, Aspidistra
Haycutter, who had adored him since
the days wh-an they cut their upper
incisors on the same bottles of Grapefruit Stubby.
But he paused by the entrance to
the hot, airy offices behind whose
iron gratings the Dirty Nine are displayed to  the public  between  eleven

a.m. and two p.m. on weekdays only.
Inside were thre-e blonde co-eds
throwing peanuts to Barley Hash,
who was sitting up on his hind legs
and grunting happily about Homecoming
And  there  also  was Dottle  Listen,  no  longer  a  wicked   conspirator,   but   an   oh-so-hard-worklng
Tin   Goddess,  knitting   red   cotton
knee   guards   for   Seaforth   Highlanders with rickets.
With    the   manly    frankness   which
had won Aspidistra Haycutter's heart,
Oscar  came straight to the point.     "I
saw   you    in   the   Bookstore   at   midnight,"  he  accused her,   "where's that
fellow   who   was   with   you?"
Dainty Dottle looked at him
coldly. "My good man," she Iclcled,
"I spent yesterday evening at the
Georgia with six Engineers and a
moth-eaten Commerce grad." She
proved lt by Theorem 1 Book 1.
"Run along, you get ln my coiffure," she added, purling vigorously.
Just at that minute the long, narrow, Brick Building janitor shot into
the office, pushing his trusty Fuller
Brush. In 4Va seconds flat he rounded up all the debris In the room, Including Oscar,  and  threw  It Into  tho

shiny tin garbage can  at  the tradesmen's entrance.
But what the janitor thought was
a rubbish receptacle waa really a
secret entrance to an underground
tunnel. Our reportorlal pal found
that out, for he and the assorted garbage shot out the bottom of the can
and down a rubber drain pipe to a
cavern  far  below  Brick  Hall.
Luckily he wasn't hurt when he
reached the ground, for he landed on
a pile of red tape which the janitor
had swept out of the Council Offices
along with all the dirt that Mary
Ann hadn't picked up.
Oscar   staggered   to   hla   feet,   and
focussed  his Alice  blue lamps  on  a
creature  who waa surveying him.
'So! We meet again, Mr. Scrlbblewell," jeered the creature. "Last
night when you annoyed me, I refrained from erasing you from the
campus. But now I am not as busy
as I   was  then."
Osca. stared with horror, for before    him    stood    the    murderer
Alarlc the Hick, speaking with the
voice of the fiend Chang Suey !
Now   at   last   the   reporter   realized
the   true   identity   of  this   mysterious
freshman     who     had     haunted     the
campus,    nonchalantly    fooling    with
corpses.    And now too late he realized that  he had  not  merely  Imagined
he    had   seen   an    evil    oriental    face
staring   out  of  the  Auditorium   clock
on Freshman day.
Wing-jIng in hand, with the purposeful air of a maths professor collecting homework, the disguised
Chang Suey advanced on the trembling  reporter.
"I feel it only fair to tell you, Mr.
Scrlbblewell, that soon I shall have
not one but two slimy corpses to dispose of." He raised his arm to throw
the   deadly   weapon!
(Is poor old Occy going to kick

Hiding in the shadows of the dimly-lighted trophy case in
the Library is the Hardy Cup, emblem of Western Canadian
Inter-collegiate Canadian Football supremacy.
Last year about this time there was much interest in this
battle-scarred mug, for everyone was speculating on the outcome of the Saskatchewan-Thunderbird series and wondering
where the cup would rest for the winter. Now, no one seems
to care if it is covered with dust in the place U.B.C. strove so
hard to put it.
All this pre-amble leads us to the main point of this article:
"Why not have a Hardy Cup series this season, war or no war?"

Tourney Gets Under Way
_-«_____—_-a».^w_i .
The annual "heather hockey' 'tournament got under way
this week as over thirty-five enthusiasts turned in qualifying
scores ranging from 75 to 126.
The low eight scorers will form the championship flight,
■while the remainder will battle it out for the first and second
Bob   Plommer   alias   "tho   Shaugh-

.-hot a 79 while Gordy Livingstone,
"the big apple", crashed around in
80   blows.
Bracketed   at   81   were   Hans   Swinton   (the  Australian   idol)   and Jimmy
All   of   Nelson.    Jack   Shillabccr   copped  the  number 8 spot with  an 83.
The draw resulted with Bob Plom-

battle of the century). K. McBride
vs. H. Swinton (won by McBride

Over across the Rockies where the Alberta Golden Bears
and Saskatchewan Huskies are punishing the old pig-skin, there
is much talk of going ahead as usual with their inter-collegiate
games. So far it is only talk, but apparently both universities
are very much in favour of the idea, claiming it will not interfere with their military training. Editorials have appeared in
the sport pages of their respective newspapers urging the formation of such a league.
So, if they are willing to travel to play football, they would
probably welcome the idea of coming here and attempting to
regain the Hardy Cup.
Here's a little plan we dreamed up to make this possible.
Let Saskatchewan travel to Edmonton to play the Golden
Bears for the right to come out to Vancouver for the finals.
It is only fair that the Thunderbirds should get the bye,
as they are the defending champions, although probably the
boys would like a trip back east just the same.
We could run off this little schedule during the Christmas
holidays so as not to clash with military training. At that time
of year it would be more advisable to play out here on the coast
where we could be sure of good football weather  (????)
If the gridders figure Christmas is too late for football such
a scheme could be completed some week-end without anybody
losing too much time from their alma mater. Saskatchewan
could leave Friday night, be in Edmonton for a game Saturday, and the winners could make it here for the final Monday
afternoon, if they wouldn't mind running up from the train
depot to change into their football togs. It would be all over
and they could be on their way home Tuesday.
Clever thought, eh?

on the campus, -when they defeated St. George's School 5—3
in a game at the stadium Wednesday afternoon. Six former
St. George's boys sparked the
Varsity side to victory over
their "old school tie".
The Freshmen lived up to previous
predictions made on this pag'e for
their sporting ability and were a
pleasant surprise to several of Varsity's seniors among the few spectators.
At the half St. George led 3-0 by
virtue of a beautiful try by Bill
Whittall, who broke loose after a
steady attack by his scrum had the
Frosh disorganized. "Daisy" Gregg
missed what should have been an
•easy   convert.
In the second hallf, Varsity went
to work and atacked consistently until the last few minutes. Their effort
brought a pay-off soon after the
change over when Roger Halpin. .x-
St. Georger, broke loose from a
scrum rush and ran through the-
'George backfleld to plant a try between the posts. Bud Falrgrl-ve
converted, bringing the score to 5-3.
In the closing minutes, the Frosh
side's lack of condition begun to tell.
The private school boys almost broke
through time after time but their advance was Anally stopped by the
Canadian Footballer Bud Fair-
grieve, for his frequent smart three-
quarter bursts; Bill Maitland, flve-
eigths and captain, fo. his steady
play an;d Roger Halpin, for consist-
antly skill-d scrum work, rate Individual mention.

Idge   (Perry),   Rose,   Strong,   Wallace.

On Tuesday and Thursday of this
week the first official workouts of
the Senior A bu-ketball team wer_
held in the gym under Maury Van
Vliot's   tutelage.
The lineup for tho team so far includes Pat Flynn. Wally Johnson,
Jim Scott, Doug Pedlow and "Joe"
Ryan of last year's team and Sandy
Hay  from  Tookes.
Also included is "Lefty" Barton
from the Senior Bees and possibly
Brud Matheson, a Senior A star for
Varsity two years ago. Brud is attending lectures but works at nights
and is unable to moke all the practises, so he might play for the Adanacs instead.
The Senior Bees have been unable
to obtain the services of Jimmy
Bardsley as coach so By Straight, of
last season's Seniors and now playing
for Adanacs, has taken over the job.
He was coach of the Frosh last year
so he should be able to make a good
showing with the team as practically
the same lineup will be playing in
the   higher  division.
Don Duncan, a freshman find of
last season, has announced that he
will not play this year. Don disclosed that the pressure of studies
would keep him from the game.
For the same reason "Doc" Miller
has also announced that he will
not be ln the lineup.
Tennekolt was the game played in
Intramurals on Tuesday. The third
year team was winner over first year
with the score 6—5, 2—6, 6—3. Fourth
year came out on top in two straight
against second year, 6—2, 6—1.
With Wednesday afternoon came the
first basketball practice of the season
and a turnout that would do any enthusiast's heart good. Sixteen glrla
in all were on the floor, with promise
of more to come. This year the teama
entered in the Cagette League will be
Snior B and Intermediate A. The step
down from A should make our new
Senior B team cause a big splash in
tho basketball puddle. The next practice is called for Monday, October 21.
Everybody out!
Tho Grass Hockey practice on Wednesday was a dismal affair having
very fow players out. At today's
practice, the whole team is asked to
come out and get set for tho big game
on Saturday against Pro-Rec No. 1.
Tho opposition is strong, so get out
there #and  fight.
