'an Education Save Us?
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
MUST BE ACCEPTED
In the fifth article of liis sir article series on phifosopli]/, tlie social sciences
tnd education, Ubyssey editor, Les Armour, winds up today his discussioi
1/ \he complex question of the attitudes of public, the social scientist and the
IJiifo'SOpher touwei one (uioilier. In the final article, he null try to fit the
pieces of his jig-saw uiir.le together and to suggest some solutions to the
froblems.
By LES ARMOUR
If the public is sceptical towards the philosopher and the
Locial .scientist, it is by no means a one-sided scepticism.
When the public charges that the philosopher and. the social scientist come to no definite
conclusions, the latter reply that their intellectual integrity requires that they voice
their doubts as well a.s their certainties.
If it be charged that they are abstruse,
they reply that it is for the sake of accuracy
that they use such language.
To the charge that they are still discussing the same old
Brpblems, they reply that since they have not solved the old
\fn4s they cannot be expected to attack new ones.
Let us examine these answers:
E MUST CHANNEL CHANGE
If it is true that they study philosophy and the social
[ciences so that we may channel changes in order to satisfy
tore of the desires common to mankind, then we must, at some
wint, begin to apply our conclusions and, to do that, we must
lave some conclusions to apply. If we agree that, on the basis
bf the evidence at the moment, a certain hypothesis is true,
Lnd, if we apply that hypothesis, its truth or falsety will become apparent much more readily than if we leave it hidden
|n some text book.
That is, if we can get our social scientists to agree upon
[ome conclusion, we may then be able to get the layman to
upply that conclusion. If it is false we will soon know and it
ban be ruled out and another decision made. So long as our
fiocial scientists refuse to be definite and refuse to agree with
me another, nobody will apply any conclusions and little will
je accomplished. •
UT IDEAS TO THE TEST
We  are  not  suggesting  that  any  hypothesis  whatsoever
Jihoud be agreed upon. We are suggesting that there are some
jroblems to which agreement could be reached, problems on
/hich there is enough evidence to justify a conclusion.
On the second answer, is it true that an overdose of technical jargon and the use of the most abstruse language possible
takes for precision in understanding? We doubt, that anyone
/ho has ventured into contemporary philosophy would agree.
The purpose in any writing is to convey thoughts in tho
Jnost precise manner possible to the largest possible number
)f people.
HE PURPOSE OF WRITING
Any writing which is unintelligble to a majority of people
fias the majority of its usefulness taken from it al the start.
In the philosophical and social scientific writings which are
intended for the betterment of mankind, unintelligible writing
[is inexcusable.
On the third count, that of being concerned with old and
|worn problems, there is perhaps some truth in statement that
[the old problems must be solved first.
This applies, of course, more to philosophy than to the
social sciences since the latter, being comparatively young,
|aro not so entangled.
Most of the basic problems of philosophy were raised  by
|tho  pre-Socratic   philosophers   of  early   Gvqqi'O,   and,   in   one
in or another, they have been under analysis since that time.

A topic of widespread interest and immense controversial

City Council will take action against UBC fraternity Psi
Upsilon, as a result of complaints from residents near theiP
fraternity house in Shaughnessy Heights.
Complaints against the Psi Upsilon*^
l'raternity have been coming in since
tlie group first bought a house m
the Shaughnessy residential area. The
fraternity bought their house in
August on the legal advice of a
Vancouver lawyer, against the advice of the civ'y council.
MANY COMPLAINTS
Since that time, according to fraternity representatives there have been
several complaints, not siVangely, because of noisy meetings or wild parties. The biggest objection would seem
to be the amount of parking space
which is taken up by the cars of the
boys and their friends on Vhe occa-
sicn  of meetings and such.
Because Psi Upsilon bought their
house on the advice of a lawyer,
complaining residents have not been
able to get a lawyer to take the case.
BYLAW PROBLEM
There is a law which prohibits
anything other than single dwellings

According to this week's calendar of activities, the Radio

There i.s only one thing wrong. The Radio Society did
not know they were sponsoring two dances. They were
only sponsoring on° on Saturday night.
No information was available at the AMS information
office at press time. AMS secretary only knew thai the
dance was booked.
Regardless, say the Radsocians, they will sponsor tlie

Continued from Poge 1
INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY
IS A CHARACTERISTIC
They are basic, and they are important. But most of them
are not directly pertinent to the immediate problems which
man must solve if he is to survive. Would it not perhaps be
better if philosophers were to select those problems immediately pertinent and concentrate their energies upon them,
meanwhile keeping the other questions in the back of their
minds, for discussion when some solution has been found to
the immediate questions?
Of course, the problems are all, in a way, inter-related,
and none of them can be completely shelved. But some attempt
should be made to direct more energy towards the questions
pertinent to man's present dilemmas.
THE FACTOR OF CURIOSITY
In this connection it would be interesting to ascertain
the reason's why men become philosophers. The life of a college
professor has its attractions, no doubt. But the factor of curiosity,
the urge to get to the bottom of things, to discover the underlying reality of the universe, seems particularly strong among
phiolsophers.
If we said to our philosophers: you must direct your attentions to the salvation of mankind and forget about your delightful abstract problems, we would probably be without
philosophers. As we said in the second article of this series,
these questions involving ultimate realities can and do have
practical results since they provide, amongst other things, the
assumptions on which we base our physical sciences.
The decision as to towards what the philosopher should
direct his attention, is indeed a difficult one. Another factor
in question is that of the effects of work in social philosophy.
WE MUST FACE BLUNT FACTS
If the social philosopher adheres to a theory which is
inconsistent with that of the society in which he lives, he is likely to find himself without a job. Instances of dismissal of professors in the United States show all too clearly that social
philosophy is a dangerous pursuit.
In the abstract field of metaphysics, however, the philosopher can come to any conclusions, however world shaking
they might be were they accepted, and remain quite safe.
It is seen, then, that we must not be too dogmatic about
our decision on the work of the philosopher.
But the blunt facts remain: either we solve our problems
or they solve themselves in the process of annihilation.
The time is long past when the philosopher and the social
scientist could content themselves with completing their researches and filing them with some technical journal. They
must make their findings available to the public, and they must
accept the responsibility for seeing that the public realizes
their significance, and, most important of all, they must devote
a large proportion of their time to the immediate problems of
mankind.

LSE to Present
Coleman Brothers
One of the biggest features of Literary Scientific Executive program
this season is the presentation of the
popular Coleman E'rothcrs who will
appear in tiro Armories at 12:30 p.m.
Tuesday.
Having spent nine months with NBC
Circle Arrow Show, the negro quintette is now on their first nationwide
tour. They appeared as guest stars on
both Fred Allen and Arthur Godfrey
shows, and are recording artists for
Decca Records.
LSE is expecting a full house for
the show of the "Coleman Brothers
Millionaires". Millions have heard
them on NBC-CBC as well as on such
records as My Prayer, One Day, Lonesome Valley, Milky White Way and
Packcn Up, and now they will have
the opportunity to witness a personal
performance on the campus.
Plans are being drawn up by thc
Special Events Committee of the LSE
The university band, under the direction of Arthur Delamont, will present its first concert of the year in
the auditorium, noon, Monday. Popular and semi-popular music will be
featured. Admission is free.
Concerts last year were well attended
and it is hoped that students will show
the same interest this year. If this
concert is a success, another one will
be presented in tlie next semester.
Outside Athletes
May Face Suspens
MAD to Take Disciplinary Action
On Delinquent Sportsmen
Athletes who persist in playing for outside teams withl
release from the Men's Athletic Directorate will be suspenf
from the University if the Administration adopts a recomn
dation of the Student's Council.
Purose of the move is to ''put teeth" % —	
Cameron Scores
Socialist Trend
Toward Liberalisi
into present regulations governing
University Athletics. Failing to get
more adequate restraints, MAD will
stop attempting to control university
students who play for non-university
teams.
A recommendation of the MAD to
this effect has been approved by council and will lie forwarded to the
faculty council, then to the Senate
for action.
"MAD at present can only rccom'
mend to the Students' Council that
offenders be expelled from the Alma
Mater Society," Walt Ewing, treasurer of the Council stated. "If more
severe restrictions are not made, the
MAD might as well relinquish its
attempts to control the situation.
Hilary Wotherspoon, MAD president echoed this opinion. ''The MAD
has never refused reasonable requests
for permission to play on outside
teams. We arc attempting to solve the
problem of those who will persist
in  such  actions   without  permission."
Text of the Council motion is:
''THAT thc council recommend to
the administration that WHEREAS it
has been considered necessary to exercise Control over student participation on outside teams so as to give
preference to universiy athletics and
WHEREAS it has proven impracticable
to enforce thc disciplinary action
necessary to control the participation
on outside teams, BE IT THEREFORE
RESOLVED that the following action
be taken:
1. That any student who persists
in playing for an outside team without having obtained written permission from thc MAD to do so, will be
suspended from thc university for the
current year.
2, And that failing endorsation of
this ruling (1) by thc Administration,
the MAD shall have to relinquish its
control over those students wishing
to play for outside teams."

They Were The Peacemakers
what's going on ...   by bob russel
Tomorrow i.s officially Remembrance
Day. But il is much more than that.
It is not only a day' on which to look
back and remember tlie horrors of mankind's
two most terrible wars; it is a clay on which
to look into the future and see what we
can do to make the world a safer, belter place.
The men whose lives were taken through
the terrible engine of destruction set in
motion through the colossal and unf'orgive-
able blunders of mankind as a whole died to
preserve the tiny segment of civilization that
man had built in five thousand years of
alternate mistakes and  successes.
Those men did not want to die. They
had hopes and dreams like all the rest of up.
They saw the engine of destruction looming towards them and they went out to
it reluctantly. They knew that either it had
to be stopped or there would be no more
point to their hopes and dreams,
They died because there was no other
choice.
The world in which they lived was not a
fit place for their hopes and dreams. But that
tiny segment of existing civilization had to
be preserved if any progress was to be made.
They died that we might expand that tiny
segment.
It i.s up to us to see that it is expanded
until it becomes something real .and significant, until the world becomes a fit place for
the realization of hopes and dreams.
To often we think of Remembrance Day
as a day for military parades, a day of hollow
psuedo-pious sentiments on which we shed
crocodile tears and then go back to the petty
interests of the day before while mankind
tramps his relentless way towards annihilation.
Remembrance Day should be a day on
which wo face the sober, terrible realities
ol our past mistakes and then look forward
and see what can be clone.
It is not a clay i'or military parades, lt is
a day for the peacemakers, the humanitarians,
for all those with a faith in a real hope for
civilization to gather together and face the
questions of tomorrow.
While The Sun Shines       By Vic Hay
A rather lurid poster in a grocery-store
window called my. attention to the fact that
this  is National  Cheese  Week.
Now, in a modest way, I am a bit of a
gourmet, and a person whose salivary glands
spout noisily every time the word "cheese"
is mentioned in my presence. I felt obliged,
therefore to celebrate this occasion in an
appropriate manner.
Later in the clay, I swung open the
trap-door which provides entry to my wine
cellar and lantern aloft, descended to those
cavernous depths in which repose my collection ol classic examples of the vmtrter's art.
Belore proceeding, it is fitting that I
explain to those to whom the delights of
cheese-eating are subordinate to other things,
in the presence of a line wine, takes on an
added flavor, just a.s lipstick does.
So  it   was  natural  that  I
should first ascertain whether or not my cellar contained
a   wine     adequate     to   tho
gustatory   ecstasy   which   a
mature   Rocoiicfort   evokes.
And  it  was  by  no  accident
thai    I    withdrew   from    its
cobwebby concealment a full-
bodied  and  august  vintage, a prize amongst
connoisseurs,  a  superb  Calawba,   '49.
Ami now for the cheese! Leaving the
vine cellar to come lo room temperature, I
summoned a hansom and bade the drivel'
■-.Kike haste lo com oy tue lo a purveyor of
aha -a-. A short time later t arrived at a
hu.ee deparlmenl store and made my way to
:hc cheese depart mriil, where I presented
in, sell al  lhe counter and cast an eve bright
with expectancy over the assorted delicacies.
After having rapped  no  less  than  nine
times for service, I persuaded a salesgirl to
leave a giggling knot of her companions. She \
was eating a piece of toffee or something.     '
"Yeah?" she greeted me, thursting an
active finger into her mouth as she spoke.
"I want to know what you have in fine
cheeses,"  I answered,  with  quiet dignity.
"Well, mister," said she, making noises
with her mouth, "we got Kraft and Bo.'dens,
also pineapple, pineapple-pimento . . ."
"No, no," I said hastily, "I mean imported cheeses, Brie, Stilton, Gruyere . .  ."
"And malted-milk, we got in some good
mailed-milk green-pepper cream cheese."
Realizing the impossibility of discu'-uing
the succulent creations of continental cheese-
makers with this creature, I summoned the
department manager to my aid.
The manager knew little more of his
wares than did hi.s hireling, but I evenutally
obtained an, excellent piece of Gorgonzola,
a cheese of indescribable fragrance and
mouldiness.
My precious parcel held daintily in my
hand, I at last sped homeward to my epicurean repast. My driver, an uneducated
chap, made some rather coarse comments
on Ihe aroma which filled hi.s vehicle en
route, but in the throes of anticipation li
passed  them off lightly.
Home at last, I found to my surprise
thai Hubert the gardener and two of his1
friends were wailing lor me. They had brought !
some beer, polalo chips, and a couple of
salamis. 1 don't recall just what happened
to the cheese, but we had one hell of a
good party, 1 can tell you.
STAGE:
"High Button Shoes," running
at the International Cinema all
this week, is very difficult to
classify. Is it a musical? It it
Burlesque? Or is it a Revue, or a
Follies? It has elements of all
these.
The plot is an expanded burlesque
routine, straight from the vaudeville circuit. Two confidence men
(a burlesque team) incessantly
try to make an easy buck. Soon
their efforts involve a small town
family, a football team, a New
England bird-watching society,
the Keystone Cops, various other
Mack Sennett movie creations of
the 19K-I':;, and  a  gorilla.
The locale chases from Washington State through a small New
England town, and Atlantic City,
waves and all. The style of production varies from the lowest burlesque to dancing pantoniincs of a
high musical-comedy level. One
set of scenery is an. ultra-realistic
interior, and the rest are quaint
non-realistic back-drops of considerable charm.
Because the production contains
all these incongruous elements,
any attempts to criticize the program as a unified whole arc like
attempts lo evaluate the contents of
a grab-bag. The total effect may
be described as pleasing or otherwise 'depending on the individual)
and the component parts may receive   individual  attention.
The component parl.s were as
varied in style and quality as can
be imagined. The chorus in one
scene seemed undisciplined and unmusical; in the next they seemed
to transcend the canvas and greasepaint to the world of sheer enchantment,'. Tlie Keystone Cop
number, one of the most complex
pieces of stage action I can remember seeing, reached peaks of
exciting brilliance (or madness;
it is difficult to decide which).
On the other hand, the love duet
was  painfully  dull.
A little adolescent love dance
done in pantomime lanoe was tho
brightest moment in the play for
me. The charm exuded in this
scene is seldom in Broadway musicals.
For moments during the production, tho audience seemed to forget that sex wa.s thc most important
thing in the world, but those situations were quickly remedied. To
those who would bo frighened away
from the play by the long skirts of
the period; fear not. Dresses' that
go right down to the ground have
slits  that  go  right   hack   up again.
When certain songs achieve, then
paw out of popularity before the
musical from which they come is
seen, their appearance in their intended original background i.s
often a disappointment. Rut in the
case of "I Still Gel Jealous" and
to a lesser extent, "Poppa Won't
Yon Dance With Me." thc originality of then' presentation and their
aptness io the plot give them a
freshness thai  is surprising.
Lord lcl'crcnce.s, such as cracks
at 'Boo-boo' Hilker lour Vancouv
er  promoter), surprised  the mo|
naive element of the audience, ar
delighted   the  sophisticated.   The
gave  the  feeling  of  local  succe^
to   the   production.
One might have wished that Ph|
Silvers had appeared in hi.s origir
al role of the confidence man, fo
he could have carried thc bur'esqul
at a higher level, thus making th|
other elements more homogencoltl
but Joey Faye steps from the toj
drawer of the Minsky-type burl
1 esq ue circuit, and manages tl
carry thc major burden of th|
show.
So much for the individual iteml
of the grab-hag. The sum total wal
pleasing and enjoyable, releasing
and good fun.
RADIO;
A new radio program, inlroduc-l
ing ihe imiver-ity to the people oi
British elumbia. begins tonighf
at 10:la on CBR.
Too much is known of the lighteij
eide of univer'ity life; so much so
that the general public doesn'1
realize the fundamental purposes;
and thc subsequent contributions
to society, that the university|
makes.
This thirteen-week series, entitled "0(3011 Hearing" appears capable of tackling the job.
The program will feature informal chats between professor G. C.j
Andrew  and  a  weekly  expert on|
one1  particular  phase  of  thc-campus'   contribution   to  society.   Certain   programs  will  also  include  al
downtown   layman   to  ensure  that I
tho  right   questions will  be asked.
Professor    Andrew    has    taught I
across Canada. He has served a.s an
educational   executive   in   private
.schools   and   universities.   He   was
with    the    Wartime    Information
Board during thc war, and i.s now]
the   executive   assistant   to   President  McKenzie.  This  background,]
and his pleasing voice, makes him
an   excellent   'host'   for   the   new |
scries.
The program is produced by I
Ross McLean, CBC Vancouver's |
new Talks Director. While still
an undergrad at U of Toronto,
Ross founded the Radio Society
there, and wa.s producing shows
for  several   Toronto  stations.
Ernie Parrault, an ex-president
of UBC's Radio Society and now
public relations officers for the
university, is acting a.s liason for
the program.
The firs' program in the series,
subtitled "You and the Researcher"
will point out what research goes
on al CBC, and whal it means to
the man in the street.
Future Thursday night.-, wil! feature discus-dons on jurist, lhe
historian, the philosopher, inventions, Ihe social scientist, and the
poet.
Introducing the university to the
puld ic is not a new idea, hut this
program looks to bo the most
promising attempt so far. We wish
it every success.
Those listeners who missed last
spring's CBC production of I-ben's

lhal it will be broadcast again ill

Hi Coeds!
Have you ever been to a slumber
party? If you haven't, then Cathie
will tell you that you've missed one
of the most wonderful evenings a girl
can spend.
Sunday night, Cathie, who should
have been studying, accepted an invitation to attend a "slumber party"
down the street. We're still hearing
about it! You would think that being
an all-girl party, what was worn
would have been of minor importance.
But as I watched Cathie flying around
the house, trying on outfit after outfit, I realized that the old saying "A
woman dresses not for a man, but for
other women," was oh too true!
.1EANS TABOO
Thinking back to the "hen parties"
that I used to attend, I casually
suggested   "jeans."
"Jeans!" Good heavens! Why those
are positively ancient! Gone are the
days of careless indifference when
rolled-up jeans, sloppy sweaters and
saddle shoes were the rage;.
In their place, we notice that well-
cut glen plaid slacks tailored to perfection not only are smart looking
but certainly clo a great deal for
one's figure. Matching jerkins worn
with tailored blouses or tucked in
sweaters show a definite trend toward "neatness."
Combining the two, we see Cathie
finally attired in tailored grey flannel
slacks, a red, buttoning down the
front, flannel jerkin, and a softlv
tailored jersey blouse. On her feet,
she's sporting grey suede crepe-soled 1
shoe-' and vhite fuzzy-topped socks. I
TEDDY BEAR NIGHTIES \
To sleep? What could be warmer
than one of these fire-engine red
■flannelette nigh'shirts! Made of a
warm flannelettes they have Inch ruffled necklines, ruffled cuffs and tiny
pearl buttons. Knee-length, and ever
so warm, Cathie resembles a fuzzy
red teddy bear.
Bottles of coke, tons of food, the
latest magazine.-', and the newest records are a must for the evening's
success. Long after the lights are out,
soft whispering and the occasional
giggling disturb the silence of the
room. As confidences become secrets
forever, girls become friends forever
and so it goes.
Mm! I'm so sleepy! "And so to bed!"

Jazz Addicts Have Bopping Good Time
t
f - ft.
By VIC HAY
Lunch-munchers got a short bop,
look and listen in Brock Hall Lounge
yesterday when UBC's Jazz Society
presented the first of their jazz
concerts for students.
Featuring Joe Milelli, Chris Gage,
Sam Davis, Lance Harrison, Carse
Sneddon and Mickey McMarlin, thc
combo bashed their way through such
standards as "Sunny Side of the
Street" and "How High the Moon",
all in aid of the Community Chest.
GAGE NOTABLE
Most notable of the musicians were
Chris Gage on piano and Carse Sned
don on trumpet, both of whom displayed originality, versatility and
sparkling technique, interjecting a bit
of bop into a program beamed towards
jazz reactionaries.
The rest of the band was for moldy
figs as the vernacular goes. Lance
Harrison's tenor sax, while in impeccable good taste, lacks something
in the way of power and tone.
A loose string on his bass didn't
help Sammy Davis in his long solos,
but you may have got a kick out of
his grimacing.
Mickey McMartin plays a competent, if limited, set of drums but he is
tasty in his use of brushes for the
slower numbers and lots of bash for
the faster ones,
TUB TRUMPETER
Joe Micelli, genial maestro of a
downtown ballroom, is a dixielander
from a way back and consequently
only tihose who like that sort of
thing would appreciate him.
Rival band leaders will probably
like even less his tub-thc-aping for
musical dates on the campus.
Jazz and Community Chest lovers, in
the whole, both profited from the
concert.
UBC WOMEN
MAY TAKE
CONTROL
UHCs campus activities are
in clanger of being taken over
by women,
While women in the outside
world continue to make learned
speeches lamenting sexual inequality, UBC co-eds are steadfastly refusing to admit any
inequality whatsovever.
Five  members  of student  council—
ahncst half the total—are now women.
Two of the five hold positions never
before  held  by  women—President  of
j the Literary and Scientific Executive
and Sophomore Member.
Presidents   of   the   Symphony   Club
land   the   Civil   Liberties   Union   are
also    women    and    executive    of    the
CCF  club   is   heavily   weighted   with
Charity
Charity went to many parlies after
that, as a matter of fact, she became
very popular. Even all her friends
and so-called friends thought she
was popular. Charity didn't miss one
party. She went to the fall cabarets,
the fall fraternity parties, the Mardi
Gras, the spring cabarets, the spring
fraternity parties and even her club
formal,
Every once in awhile Charity felt
pangs of conscience, but after all,
she figured that she would only bo
young once, so why not have a good
lime, and herides, she'd get through-
she had made wonderful marks in
high school and university wasn't so
different.
The week before exams came, Charity really studied, She even took little j
pills   so   she   could   stay   awake   and .
study. Then Charity wrote her exams, j
They   seemed   kind   caf   hard   but  she
figured   she'd   get   through,   after   all, I
she  didn't   pay   her  fees  for  nothing. I
Next year she would he a sophomore,
and   that  would  be  even  better  than
being a   freshman,
This   fall   Charity   came   back   to
university.  Now she sits  in   the  Caf
all   the   time   smoking   and   drinking
coffee    with    her    friends    and    so-
called   friends.   She   doesn't   have   to
worry  about  where the B huts  and <
the   L   huts   are   any   more   because]
Charity doesn't  even pay fees.  She's i
learning  about  society and life. |

ICE
LINES
By HFRM FRYDENLLND
The UBC hockey squad opens
its home season next Tuesday
night against the Kerrisdale Mon-
arehs at tha new Kerrisdale arena.
This game will initiate what
will undoubtedly prove to be an
old-fashioned hockey feud every
time the two squads step on the
ice.
The basis of this contention is the
fact that the newly clubbed Mon-
archs have made overtures towards UBC players in an attempt
to gain strength at the expense of
the Thunderbird team without consideration of the players scholastic
position.
Despite these questionable tactics the Monarchs have an imposing line-up which on paper
should rate as at least equal to the
local outfit. The team is not all
that could be desired in spirit and
fight but their dreamer management are already touting them as
Allan Cup winners. (That makes
two in the one league).
Kerrisdale Winless
The game Tuesday will find both
teams at full strength and with an
equal number of games under
their bolts, The Kerrisdale .-quad
however, has yet to register a win
They managed two ties with Nanaimo v. Idle losing once to Nanaimo ami losing two out of three
in the Interior,
First among the  rookies  is D •'.-
Sehmied, last season a junior st ,r
with   Calgary   Buffaloes.   Of   local
interest   they   have   cx-'Bird   star    [
Bub   .Saunders   on   defence   with    \
twin brother Don in goal. Don in.
cidentally   played   for  Indians  last    i
season and is a capable performer.
The Thunderbirds will ice the i
same squad which took the measure of the Clippers last Saturday.
The team's showing was so collosal >
that they should encounter no un- J
surmountable obstacle in the semi- j
amateur kings.
Ken Torrence will bc between
the pipes again as Don Adams is
still on the injured list. Ken's sensational showing in Nanaimo would
have earned him the starting assignment at any rate. He once played for the U of Alberta Golden
Bears.
Strong Defense
Tlie defence will find Terry Nelford combining with cither Cal
Oughton or -Wag Wagner on thc
one unit with Ken Hodgert and
Jack McFarlanc on the other. If
Oughtan returns to the line-up
Wag will see forward duty,
These five players represent thc
strongest defence ever arrayed at
UBC. McFarlanc and Oughton are
both newcomers and arc both
slightly sensational. With Terry
and Ken they arc hard to beat.
Tlie forward lines arc intact wilh
Koch, Andrew, and Berry clicking in the first combination. Andrew is still thc smartest centre-
man in the league but he is hard
pressed by Clare Drake. Koch
and Berry arc literally flying and
will be high in the scoring.
The second unit has Drake,
Lindsay, and Bailey, last season's
rookies, This persistent trio is improved even over last year. Their
spirit and try alone would be enough but they have developed

UBC Rowers Making Gieat Strides,-
Plans Made Foi Big Meets This Season
By  RAY FROST
UBC's rowers have come a long
way in their short one-year existence, and they are planning on
going a lot farther this year.
Surprising everybody but themselves with their fine showing last
Saturday against Oregon State's
eight-man shell, losing by only
half a length to thc classy Yankei-s
but beating their four-man entry
as well as the listless Penticton
crew in thc other two events, UEC
rowers showed thc university tiv.it
they could evolve into a championship team,
Revived on the campus last ye.-.r
after a long layoff caused by tht
war and other things, rowers got
off to a good start with a donation
of an eight-man shell from David
Spencer's Ltd.
Two old shells, one four and one
eight, were given to Vancouver
Rowing Club by UBC, and in return, university rowers were allowed to use VRC equipment and
facilities.
Coach of the campus teams is ■
VRC  man,  Doug Lewis, who  has
done   a   near-perfect   job   so   far
tlris year.
Lest season, the university rowers did good too, considering thc
fact that they were so green, but
even then they lost out to Universi-
ty of Washington Olympic lightweights, who were also National
champs by a mere two lengths last
spring when the two clubs paired
off.
With a new shell coming this
spring, made by a new fellow from
Kelowna,   Gordon   Jennings,    the
rowers will travel clown the coast
after Easter exams to Stanford,
and then they will stop in al different schools on Ihe way back,
taking on all comers.
Jennings will go along with the
boys carting his shell for them
on his carrier, publicizing his product up and clown the coast. Team
members, going by private cars,
will bo paying their own way on
the trip.
Two teams of eight men will
make tho jaunt to the south, regular Varsity crew comprising one,
while a combination of both university fours into one eight will
be the other.
Other important meet of the season will be around the first of
March when Stanford, UW lightweights and Oregon University will
come to UBC for a four-way meet
in Vancouver.
Three-day invitational meet at
Lake Union in Seattle will bring
teams probably from Eastern United Slates but most assuredly from
down  the  coast  as  well as UBC
entries.
J!Si'
Constant practice from now until spring, which is what the rowers will have to do if they are to
improve their style, will be the
fate of UBC's oarsmen this whole
winter.
B'ut the shellmen have in mind
a few wins this spring, and they
figure that the time spent will be
well worth it,
Little more conditioning is needed by the club, but the main task
is to develop a smoother style
which will allow them to cut down
their stroke without losing speed.

Whitworth Passing
Dims 'Birds Hopes
Reid Through for Season But
Fleet Backs May Make Up Loss
By  KAY  FROST
Hopes of winning their last scheduled football game of the
season this Saturday look slightly dim for UBC Thunderbirds.
'Bird's veteran star of the gridiron
Doug Reid, packed off the field last
week in ilhc Idaho game, will not
be playing this Saturday.
His career was finished for this
season when he injured his knee
early in the second quarter attempting to line-buck one yard for touchdown territory.
His knee is so stiff that he finds it
hard to walk at all,
POOR PASS DEFENCE
Failing badly on pass defense last
week in their loss to Northern Idaho,
'Birds meet one of the best aerial
teams among small school;; this week
when Whitwon'h Pirates invade the
local's  territory.
Whitworth features a free-passing
game when the foe's defense is weak
and their receivers are on the ball at
all   times.
Chucking   assignments   are   usually
handled   by   Sophomore   fullback   Ed ,
Kretz with  end Sam   Adams  picking
up most of the passes for the Pirates.
SECOND IN YARDAGE
Kretz is currently in second place
in U. S, small college offense, most
of his yardage being picked up on
thc passes, but when called upon
to carry the ball on the ground, he
si ill gains enough yards to keep up
his   average.
Adams, 1948 All-Conference end, has
contributed to many of Pirate's touchdowns this season, picking up Kretz's
flings to take the ball into payoff
territory.
On the ground, Pirates can still
hold their own, and have with every
team that they've met this year.
Aiding the Pirate cause in the
running department is All-Conference
back Vern Tucker, who vhis year
is a Whitworth nominee for Little
All   American.
TOUGH LUCK
Tough luck has plagued Whitworth
crew, losing two of their last four
games by one touchdown margins,
being outdone only by UBC who lost
lwo of their last four by uiic point
margins.
Whitworth will hit Vancouver Friday at (!:()() pan,, coming up from
Spokane by chartered bus, bringing
up a full .'12 players to make their
s.and   against   UBC.
Rob Murphy back in strip again this
week, after seeing lit'ile action in
i lie Northern Idaho encotintca. will
lie kept in reserve again un'd U.'jC's
I a.ssing  attack   needs  sprucing  up.
IONG   LAYOFF  SHOWS
Murphy showed the elfeets of a
mug layoff last weak when he tossed
; way I wo passes in a row, grouiidiiv;'
idem far away from the intended
lecciver.
Vnth Lord finished for the rest
' ■' tlie season too, bin Dave MacFarlane will he given the fullback slot,
i oing helped along by halfbacks
lioorge Puil, Stan Clarke, and Don
Liught.
ALL-CONFERENCE    end    in
1948 is Whitworth's star pass
receiver Sam Adams, sophomore from Fort Worth, Texas.
Termites Capture
Cross-Country Race
Edging Out D U's
Record number of participants took part in the annual
intramural cross-country race
which started at the stadium
yesterday but Termites emerged the winners.
Termites ended up with the lowest
score of 411 points, placing men in
G, 7, 11 and 19 positions to take the
laurels.
Second place Redshirts ended up
with a total of 53 points, while DU's
came third, tallying 131 as a score,
Betas placed fourth with 146 points
and Foresters made the fifth spot with
156 points.
Team members of the winning Termites were Lowther, Goddard. Chowen,
and Alberni.
Individual winner among the elig-
ibles was Dick Stephens of Fijis who
covered'the course in 14:48.4.
Course this year was changed to
2.7 miles in place of the 2.6 of previous
viars, so Stephens has set a record
for  the course.
Dob Piercy actually finished in
first place, with Bain. Henniger, and
Chapell finishing behind him in that
order, but they were ineligible for the
meet and were merely travelling the i
route fcr thc workout.
