WeU I see everybody is picking on the poor little Engineers
because they have never been
mistaken for Adolphe Menjou
in the hydraulics lab.
1 Personally I think this is being unfair. Students who criticize Engineers forget that the
Sciencemen are slightly handicapped—they have never taken
ah Arts course.! The Engineers
actually have a terrific sense of
humour; the only trouble is
that it is too bad they are lacking so much in the stuff that
goes between the ears.
But back to the Engineer's
deficiency in the blue serge
line. A little while ago a pressrelease was sent to Flo McNeil,
our Editor ih charge of Females. It revealed that "Mademoiselle, .the Bible of the college clothes-horse, has outlined
Engineer's unusual mental retardment is the fact that he
never slept in a cradle. When
he was 'a baby his head was
so pointed his mother just
threw him into a dartboard
every night.
SHAWLS AND BIBS
I think the reason for the
a new fashion credo for the coed."
The article goes on to tell
the collage girl to "have the
courage to be different, to draw
attention and to hold it. This
tririk is forked *ith the use of
accessories."
. "Apparently believing that,
the Babe-in-arms look enhances a girl's charm, Mademoiselle prescribes shawls fastened with giant safety pins,
and bibs, alive with jewels and
wrought gold. Longer gloves
and fur muffs, besides adding
a touch of sophistication, will
dp much to prevent chapping
of hands.
"The sculptural belt makes
a good connection between
your sweater and skirt. It can
be purchased to go along with
another campus necessity, the
big bag."
Now this may be all very
well but what about the male
of the species? If my observations are correct, the female is
always pretty well-dressed; it
is the boy who needs the tips
on how to look like a campus
Gregory Peck. Girls have
more magazines than Dodds
has kidney pills which instruct
them how to dress. The poor
male has to slouch along in his
T-shirt and blue denims, letting the women take all the
wolf-whistles.

the Engineers and in answer to
Mademoiselle we are offering

REVIVAL OF THE JOKERS CVfff was demonstrated at the AMS General Meeting on
Friday when they went through many hosta lgic acts that once made the Jokers one of
UBC's most powerful clubs.
BACK AGAIN
Jokers Return To Bolster Spirit
The Jokers are back!
Once considered the' arnost
spirited group on campus, the
Jokers are back at UBC to revive what little campus spirit
there is left
Appearing at the AMS General
Meeting on Friday, the "n,ew
Jokers" exhibited many weird
antics by which they hope to instil "spontaneous exhuberance"
into student activities.
NEW PEP CLUB
Constitution tor this new campi's
pep club is now in the hands ot
the Literary and Scientific Executive and will be considered by the
executive as to whether The
Jokers will be placed under the
jurisdiction of the AMS.    ,
Necessity forced the Jokers underground in 1948 because most
of the members making up the
club were in their graduating year
and could not recruit new blood
to  carry  on their  activities.
WEAR  PYJAMAS
Activities of the old Jokers -club
consisted of men sitting In the
women's toilets during noon hour,
attending lectures dressed In pyjamas.
Last president of the Jokers,
Dave Ellis, staged one of the club's
most fascinating stunts by jumping off the top of the Library.
The nellv Jokers club will probably c
attemtp.lng to Instil spontaneous
spirit into as many campus activities as possible.

SHORT STORY WRITERS
, Stories by two UBC grads are included in a new book
of Canadian short stories appearing in bookstores this
week.
The two are Ernest Perrault and William McConnel,
arts and law graduates in '48 and '50 respectively.
Perrault was public relations officer for the AMS, and
is now known as a sometimes radio writer and journalist-
author. McConnel practices law in New Westminster, and
has had stories printed in Other Canadian collections.
Other Vancouver writeiSTFepresented ^Hhe book are
novelist Ethel Wilson, ar*ij DorotheyLiveiay, a prominent,
poetess and author.
A Victoria writer, Floris"McLaren, is also represented.
The book is a collection of the best stories appearing on
CBC's Canadian Short Stories in the last three years. It
is published by Oxford 'University Press and is titled 'An
Anthology of Canadian Short Stories'.
If the volume is a success, the publishers will consider
making the book an annual publication, similar to the
American Best Short Stories series.

Still Under Question
Student's Council has been forced to call a second emergency meeting as a result of the time taken up by discussion at
last Friday's general meeting.
The second meeting will be held at noon Thursday in the
Armories. v
Main reasons for the meeting is a motion to be presented
by Darrell Tepoorten, asking for athletic scholarships.   Th*
motion could not be presented to the students before adjournment of Friday's meeting.
His-resolution reads: i-
"Whereas the problems ot ath
letlcs on this campus is essentially
one pertaining to American football, and   ,
"Whereas the problem resolves
into the failure of our American
football team to efficiently compete in the Evergreen Conference,
and
"Whereas this difficulty is caused by lack of co-operation by the
Senate and the Administration and
the lack of sympathy with the desire of the students as evidenced
by their refusal to allow scholarships for athletes, and       •
"Whereas members of the football team are required to spend nn
undue amount of time andf ef
extending even beyond their ri|u-
lar school term, and
"Whereas they are called u^H
to produce competition tor a la}|*
following of spectator* both on audi
off the campus and from whtoli tllf
profits contribute to the maintenance of minor sports, and
"Therefore be It resolved; that
athletic scholarships be approved
in principle In sp far as the recipient of such awards la able tp pa«
the academic standards set by twa
university and that The Senate
ahd The Administration co-oper*
ate with the «ims of these indents' recommendations,"
SPECIAL MEETING
A special meeting of Students'
Council Monday moved and carried
a resolution that a freshman ruling
was undesirable because many students are able to carry an extracurricular activity and still main*
tain a good scholastic standing.
A second reason given was that
At Friday's meeting a motion in
favor of a permanent lA-ttlletifc

"All coaches have threatened to

LETTERS TO  EDITOR
Horn One Mess To Another
Last week the students of this university
Voted for "more student control over ath-
l«ti(il." Nothing could be more symptomatic
. of tH« inadvisability of such a step than the
j-eajoning and the events leading up to it.
the athletic record at UBC in the past few
yws has been pitiful and frustrating. It was,
thtft|j[ore, inevitable that some form of revolt
aw} ^revisionism should arise.
After a consideration of all the variable
factors in the athletic picture, the instigators
of the revolt chose the "we pay for athletics,
we want control of athletics" theme.
l*he student body has, firstly, the power
of providing or withholding funds, of expanding W contracting the athletic program..
This is the first and also the ultimate
measure of control. Beyond this stage all
(\irther organization must be set ud in the
l^Jat ff functional administrative advantages.
>The scheme to bring the athletic director
Within the direct control of student authorities
cannot materially change the situation.
%• athletic director is supposed to control
thaetooiee of coaches. Whether he is directly
responsible to Students' CouncU or otherwise,
he is still largely dependent on the Physical
Editwtion Department for personnel.
In fact, if he were completely divorced from
any attachment to the administration, his
usefulness would probably end, because appointments to the Physical Education Department Would then be made without any regard
far student athletic requirements.
The dual supervision, then, has in reality
but a formal concession of control. It only
subordinates the athletic director to the spasmodic effects of student administration.
Asjproof of this instability of student plan-
i*ing%e can only offer the following sequence.
The present crisis comes as a result of contiguous defeats in the field. The causes of
these def eats have been analysed quite clearly, but the resulting remedies ignore that
ajllJfWs.    	
The schemes that have been suggested so
far follow the path of least resistance.
"We can never hope to have a winning
football team, because the people coming to
this university have never played American
football in high school—thus goes the analysis.
The obvious remedy would be to stop playing football and stop wasting student money.
However, it is then pointed out that we make
a tidy profit on football.
It is necessary to remember that a waste of

*       *       *
Not. long ago we saw au extremely large bulldozer in a heavy
nqulpment agency's show window.
Wo stopped to have a closer look
at It, because It seemed an extraordinarily graceless thing to put
into a show window,
It was heavy, rough of finish,
useless for anything but one pur-»
pose. We wondered what would
possess anyone to acquire such a.
horrible monster. The very
thought made us grin wryly, in
fact we positively leered. We
must have kept ogling and leering
for quite some time, because before we knew it one of the salesmen hud grabbed us by the collar and wa.s yelling for the police.
We were liaulod Into court and
charged with attempted theft.
The prosecutor maintained that
vve leered and ogled in a manner
Indicative of criminal intent and
that only the timely intervention
of the heroic salesman had saved
the company from the loss of
their prize piece of equipment or
material damage thereto.
Our lawyer while advising us
to plead guilty, based his defense
on the fact a pane of glass divided
us and our "loot". However,
when the prosecutor countered
that our leer was such as to make
the best of gla.ss but a temporary
obstacle, we were quickly found
guilty.
As this was our rirst offense
we were put on probation.
Only yesterday, on our way to
see the probation officer, we saw
a. large bill-hoard ad displaying
a large, graceless, heavy, formless bulldozer.
"IK VOIJ ARE TEMPTED TO
LEER. DON'T! IT IS MUCH
CHEAPER TO BUY THIS 1110
BEAUTY. DON'T RESIST THAT

YOII) HEAVY KORM DEALER."
money is not necessarily coincidental with a
deficit on the Profit and Losg Statement.
The Men's Athletic Directorate can usually
show a profit on the football season. However, in the final analysis the gate receipts,
on which the margin of profit rests, are also
a student contribution to the athletic program.''
If, then, the record of the football team is
as dismal as is the present case, then this
sum must also be included as a student subsidization of a failure. C
While we lack the courage to take the inevitable step and sever our connections with
the Evergreen Conference, or at least get out
of American football competition, Students'
Council has taken a spineless alternative that
might se"rve for a smooth if not very graceful
exit. They have sent-the members of the
Conference "an ultimatum" threatening withdrawal if certain amateur rules are not adhered to by member universities.
The reason for this resolution, of course, is
not Council's preoccupation with lily-v/hite
amateurism, but the knowledge that the teams
concerned will not conform, just as we would
not conform if the board of governors had
allowed us outright subsidization schemes of
the football team.
The presently proposed revisions of the
athletic program, consequently, tackle the
trappings instead of the roots.
The administration, of course, has this very
same tendency. It intends to enforce a ruling
making freshmen ineligible for first teams.
The reason behind this step is commendable.
The administration is worried about the high
percentage of academic failures among freshmen on these teams, and feels it has certain
responsibilities as temporary "guardians" of
these students.
The proposed step, however, means in
reality only one thing: that the people affected,
by this ban will in future play on off-campus
teams. The administration realizes this, but
insists on enforcing its ridiculous rule merely
because it wishes to rid itself of a self-imposed
responsibility.
If the administration regarded this responsibility in the absolute and implicit sense, it
would tackle the problem by including study
periods as part of the training table, a rather
drastic but certainly more honest possibility,
The presently proposed scheme, however,
is quite evidently just a shedding of responsibility—a policy not so much of passing the
buck, as of trying to sweep it under the carpet.

UBC's budding lawyers were a
sight to behold at last week's
AMS Oeneral Meeting.
Poised like duelists, with their
Rules of Order tucked in their
pants pockets, they prayed on
unsuspecting speakers.
As a duel in pedantics it was a
fascinating spectacle. However,
we are still under the delusion
that rules of order were set up to
facilitate the smooth running of
meetings, not to disrupt it.
, The- flr.st few lnterrputions are
always a welcome break in a tedious debate. The lawyers, however, seem to overdo It.
There oughta be a law against
them.
Editor, The Ufcysaey,
Sir:
Some misconception nppears to
exist as lo .terms of service in
the .COTC. 1 believe these should
be elaiiflbd.
The COTC Is the ovoiull
scheme designed to produce officers for all brunches and reserve elements of the Canadian
Army. It is not a part of the regular army. The primary purpose
Is' to allow ivntverstly men the opportunity* to qualify as officers
so that hi event of a national'
emergency they may take tkelji'-
places as such, rather ' than ' enlisting as private soldiers, thus
denying themselves and th/ilr \
country for aontfe mouths tbe services a highly educated tnau
should properly render.
COTC ORAM
On completion of a minimum of
two whiter sessions and two summer i.imps, au officer-cadet may y
be transferred us a qualified ot*
fleer to a "paper" list known an
the Supplementary Reserve of Officers ufter which he haa no further responsibilities to the Army,
In time of emergency he may be
asked if lie will serve as an officer or alternatively face call, up
under ighatever scheme of compulsory service might be in effect. The COTC graduate may
enter the Active Reserve or the
Regular Army as an officer lt ire
so desires.
There are two other schemes
for officer production whicli exist
•under the aegis of tbe COTC;
both kre designed to provide officers for the regular army. The -
first provides for final year or,
in the case of medicals their
penultimate year, students to be
enlisted as Second Lieutenants
In the Regular Army and to be
subsidised as such until graduation. The Officer concerned must'
ordinarily serve with the Regular
Army for five years after graduation.
The second scheme subsidiary
to the COTC is the Regular Officers Training Plan. It provides
for a man who has completed
senior matriculation between the «
ages or 16 and 21 to be enrolled
in the regular army as an Officer
Cadet. He will then be subsidized
ordinarily until graduation, after
which time he must serve as a
Regular Army Officer for threo
years.

Scotch
and Soda
By flo McNeill
Taking the lazy way out this
week, I'd like to reprint this article
which appeared ln the "Manitoban", campus newspaper from the
University of Manitoba. There's
been much controversy over the
usefulness ot a college education
tor women. I feel the following
will echo the feelings of many of
our co-eds on the subject.
Anatole France called the purpose of education "to arouse the
natural curiosity of young minds."
Furthering this idea, education
should also lead or channel the
inquiring mind ho that it may have
purpose and may make advancements.
MIND EQUAL TO MALI
Given equal opportunity, the feminine mind has proved equally capable to the male counterpart. One
need only glance through scholarship lists, both high school and
university, tor overwhelming evidence of this. At our university in
the past five years, in even such
predominantly male faculties as
Agriculture, Commerce #nd Science, the Gold Medal, supreme
faoulty award, bas lean won by a
woman graduate.
This "higher education" is no
short-term project of our ctf-eds.
It often comes at as dear a price
as to any male student—summer
employment, Saturday jobs, or part-
time work are necessities. It will
be tbe means of livelihood for
many girls. And marriage does
not end interest and activity in the
chosen field, as so many of our
M.D. ladles have proven.
Apart from the specific skills
and knowledge attained in university studies, the woman graduate has developed independence
of thought. She has formed a basis
for good Judgment. This means
•he baa developed the attributes ot
a good clttsen. When one realizes
that tm per cent of the vote* cast
in the USA were cast by the nation's women, one understands that
such control tn a nation's government must not be accompanied by
narrowness or ignorance. There
will always be a need in any society for a person who has learned
to think and to write and to speak.
NO ptt OLfSCT OF HOM E
fhe college education does not
mean neglect of "home" work . . .
the fine arts of- baking and baby
tending. No charm or warmth of
personality ls lost in college life.
And the "graduate" wife ls not
restless and discontented because
she feels superior to a home career.
Such accusations have been nuide
from time to time hut a survey ot
present conditions shows that
these accusations have not been
grounded In frfct. Remember that
90 per cent of parenMtl thinking is
nt present undertaken by the
mother. A need for maturity and
balance tn moulding the nation'*
future Is obvloue.
A University girl is not trying
to prove that "she Is smarter than
the boys. She Is only nsking for
an equal chance to be given the
tools of education that she, too,
may make constructive contributions to her society, that she, too,
may take her place as an alert
citizen.

What more could any co-ed want
than a glamorous career combined
with her university education? Or
a chance to travel throughout the
country meeting interesting people
aud, receiving  marvellous pay.
Fifteen UBC girls found the
answer to their dreams when' the
Royal Canadian Airforce began recruiting co-eds for summer training,
last year. The scheme which wan
limited to four universities for the
experimental first summer, was
such a success that this year lt
has been expanded to include neur-
ly every Canadian campus.
Squadron Leader R. 0. Herbert,
commanding officer of the UBC
Reserve Squadron, h>as announced
that there are stl|l vacancies for
girls iu next summer's quota, and
tall interested should apply at the
airforce orderly room ln the
Armouries immediately. Requirements are good physical health,
a fair scholastic standing, and a
genuine Interest in the airforce. -
INITIAL TRAINING
The  first ten weeks is spent  in |
u)ndon, Ontario, nt the officer' i
training school, receiving Initial
and advanced training. The courses
include current events, history and
organization of the nirforce, public
speaking, service writing, airforce
law, drill, physlcaF education aivjl
career information. The advanced
course stresses service management and personnel relations,
which are valuable assets no mnt-
ter what career you plan to per-
sue, In the nirforce or'civilian life.
The pay is wonderful — $170 a
month plus room and board — and
uniforms, both blue and khaki, are
supplied.
NEW 1ARRACK8
During training the flight cadets
are housed In a brand new barrack block; three" girls to a room.
The officer's meass erves as a
home away from home, with many
recreation  facilities.
After graduation, the flight
cadets are posted to stations across
the Dominion, from Goose Bav,

Journalism Offers
Many Adventures
If you're looking for an exciting and varied career, girls,
this is it.
The variety of jobs open to
women In newspaper work is more
than most people realize. There

Be girls), to list only some of the
opportunities.
In fact, today, the career-minded
gal can enter almost any field,
male competition  notwithstanding.
EXCITING
It doesn't matter whether you
prefer pounding a typewriter, or
lfteetlng people, there will bo plenty of opportunity for both. In
short, there Is a never-ending
round (of exciting activities In
newspaper work.
Now for you girls who aren't
sure that you would like newspaper
work, there ls no better way to find
out than to acquire practical experience.. And what better way to
acquire this experience than nt nn
actual newspaper? Right here on
the campus vve have a newspaper
that's, bis-time on a small scale.

At the Ubyssey pub, you can sep
for yourselves just how a newspaper works, and believe me, once
you get into the spirit of it all, yor,
won't want to quit. There are so
many things you tan do, especially on the women's page. There,

How To Pass
Xmas Exams
; Looking for an easy way to your
B.A.? Here are seven helpful hints
for harassed students. Following
directions carefully will guarantee
100% satisfaction or your money
back. (Caution: do not use while
attending Hunter College. These
were written by a traitorous IT. C,
professor.)
1. Bring the professor newspaper
clippings dealing with his subject.
If you don't flph clippings dealing
with his subject, bring In clippings
nt .random. He thinks everything
deals with bis subject.
2. Look alert. Tnke notes eagerly. If you look at your watch, don't
stare at it unbelievingly and shake
it.
'.'<. Nod frequently and murmur
"How true!" To you this seems
exaggerated. To him, it's quite
objective.
5. Laugh at his jokes. You can
tell. If he looks up from his notes
nnd smiles expectantly, he has,told
a joke.
(i. Ask for outside reading. You
don't have to (end it.   .Inst ask.
7. If   you   must   sleep   in   class,
Territories. There "contact training" la provided, witn the girls
wonting In many different parts of
•the stations to obtain a really
good grounding in nirforce organization and administration.
The first summer three fields-
supply, administration, and medical mesing — are open to choose
from. The other two summers the
choice is somewhat wider.'and officials try to tit the summer employment to the person't university
course.
FO <N RESERVE
Commissioning comes at the end
of the second summer, when the
rank of Pilot Officer ls attained.
Upon graduation from university
you automatically become a flying
officer in the reserve.
If you're not convinced now that
the airforce is the place for you
next summer, just ask any of the
present fifteen flight cadets on the
campus about It, and lt won't be
long before you are completely

Bathing suits are another llttlo
item which have changed through
the years. The three-quarter length
knit bathing suits of the 1910's
were of the V-neck, close fitting
variety, and boasted "under"
trunks bitting just above the knee.
With the "roaring twenties"
came the loss of the female figiire,
as far as fashions go. Waistlines
were dislocated from what Mother
Nature planned and dropped to
where hips were once located.
HEREDITY CONCEALED
Wrap around coats were featured, and sported a full, draped
cut, which effectively concealed
whatever heredity did or tailed' to
do.
In the dress silhouette, tunics,
diupes and overskirts were also
very popular, and added to this
were many ruffles and over-skirt
effects. The idea seemed to be to
appear as what you were uot. To
the contemporary's eyes, the flat-
chested,,,, waigtless aud h'lpless
maid of the Charleston e,ru "Just
didn't   bave   It."
The decade which followed saw
a radically different girl on the
fashion scene. This time she was
outfitted in extremely mannish
clothes, with suits bearing the
longer straight look. Sliirtmaker
dresses became classic, and tho
trouser   pleated   skirts   were   big
news.
«
Due to one of those funny quirks
of faahion, apparel audi as 'bathing suits and evening dresses acquired feminine touches such as
flared skirts on both items, and
deep-cut necklines on the evening
wear.

Athletic Meeting A Flop
Another One On Thurs.
Everybody Wins Except
Basketball And Soccer
UBC sports fans woke up Monday morning after a hectic
weekend which included: a schemozzle of an AMS meeting
on Athletics which turned into a lawyer's field-day; retention
of the Egg Cup for the rewing team; the first Saturday win for
a UBC football team this year; a long-sought win for the hockey
team; a remarkable performance by a UBC runner in the
Pacific Northwest Cross Country championships; the first win
in two years for a UBC soccer squad; first place standing in
Miller Cup play for the rugby team; an end to the basketball
team's winning spurt and an extension of the soccer team's
losing streak.
The much heralded AMS meet-•
Ing on Friday turned into a farce
when certain  tactions decided  to
argue endlessly over technicalities
and to show their knowledge of
parliamentary procedure, thus
dragging the meeting out over
- three hours and driving most* of
tbe, students away, leaving 160 or
the university's 550 students to
decide athletic policy.
Fed up with a losing football
team, the few who remained to the
bitter end hnntied the control of
the Athletic Director back to the
students. By a narrow margin
students passed a recommendation
which stated that the Athletic Director be made rsponsibie to the
Students' Council and the Board
ot Governors and NOT to the
School of Physical Education.
CAN IT B$ BOTH
However, students turned
thumbs down on an additional recommendation that an Athletic Director be hired who also could
coach the football team.
(Representatives of English rugby, soccer and minor sports were
instrumental in defeating this motion. They claimed that an Athletic
Director who coached the football
squad Vould tend to spend too
much time on /football and would
therefore discriminate against
minor sports.
Nearly 1500 students showed up
for the start of the proceedings
which didn't get underway until
1:00. By the time the preliminaries
had been dispensed with some students had to wander .away to lee*
tures. As lt became clear as Unto
went on, that parliamentary procedure, not athletics, was to be
the main topic of discussion, moro
and more students grew disgusted
with the petty squabbling and
more and more students walked
out.
We Keep Egg Cup
Scramble Oregon
THIS WAS A FLOP
Although the meeting could
bave been adjourned at any time
because a quorum (30, percent of
the students) was not present,
those who were sincerely interested in the athletic question ut UBC
tried in vain to get some concrete
proposals passed despite the lock
of leadership by tbe Students'
Council, ln maintaining some sort
of order over the bitterly-debated
meeting.
A well-meant intention to do
something about the controversial
Senate ruling on freshmen fell flat
on Its face when the meeting was
adjourned before a stronger motion asking the Senate to reconsider its ruling could be brought
forward.
NO MORE SCHOLARSHIPS
The original motion read: "Aca- athletics."'
demlc   requirements   for  athletics
be rigidly enforced, but the Senate Joe Nold' B1" B°«ldlns- VttU*han
be requested to postpone their ml-j ^"n nnd Joe Schleslnger all
Ing with respect to the particpation j spoke 'against the motion on the
of freshmen and other student* nn grounds that it should be amend-
the campus for their first year in ed to include all students, not just
competitive     and     inter-collegiate | athletes.
Chiefs Win First Game
Varsity Loses Again
■Varsity soccer club was blanked
1-0 by Royal Oak'Drugs in a Mainland Cup game at South Memorial
Park on Sunday while UBC Chiefs
won their first game in two years
with a 4-0 triumph over VG'H.
Varsity, displaying a superiority
of playing ability and a lack of
scoring punch, suffered a heartbreaking setback in the fifth round
of the Mainland Cup.
The Chiefs outhustled their opponents throughout the game and
with the forward line finally tunc-
tinning on all cylinders found little
difficulty In downing the hospital
eleven.
In the first half John Uowen
scored to give the Chiefs a 1-0 lead.
The score remained the aame until
midway through the second half
when center-forward Mac Mnc-
donald drove a hard shot into the
net.   Inside-left   Vic   Edwards  and
Macdonald again finished off the
Chief scoring.
The Thunderbird team came up
witb another good game before
losing 1-0. As in their other games
this season they outplayed their
opponents but- once again found
that they could not score any goals.
GOALIE SAVES OAKS
The score was tied 0-0 at the
end of regulation time and a half
hour overtime'period was played.
The Druggists scored about four
minutes Into the overtime and tben
held off the desperate Varsity rally.
The student team was unfortunate
not to tie the score as the Oak's
goal-keeper made two miraculous
saves.
The loss was the sixth straight
for the Birds and knocked them out
of Mainland Cup play.
Next Saturday Birds will play
Sapperton on the campus.
Hockey Team Wins
Nanaimo Contest
Everybody Happy
But Naniamo
It may be their first league
victory of the season but on
Saturday night at Nanaimo the
UBC Thunderbird hockey team
served notice that it certainly
won't be there last. Not by a
long shot.
Thunderbirds out-hustled, out-
shot (50 to 16) and decisively outplayed the Island city's Nanaimo
Clippers by a decisive score of 6-2.
And victory was sweet. Last year
in the only game Birds played
with the Clippers they were smothered 10-1.
Never once faltering from their
smooth passing, hustling style the
youthful UBC squad forged ahead
to a two-goal(j|,ead In the first period
on goals by*Steve Gryschuk and
Jim McMahon.
THE MAYOR'S BROTHER
One more goal was added in the
second frame and three more Insurance counters in the final frame.
Pete Hume, the Calgary shuffler,
shot ln two quick goals ln the last
period  in a  tremendous  effort to
put the game on Ice. Mac Carpenter picked up his first goal ot tbe
season at; did Jim McMahon.
ln fact big Jim 'should have had
at least two more goals all on his
lonesome but after twice pulling
the Clipper goalkeeper out of his
net and then just falling to deposit
the puck In the goal lt looked like
a conspiracy.
GENEROUS JIM
Coach Frederickson queried Jim
on how come he hadn't scored but
the Kootenay stalwart stated he
just wanted to. make the goalie
look good.
But Coach Frederickson was well
pleased with bis boys and might
well be because tliey played his
style of hockey. They passed the
puck, shot for the openings and
back-checked the home team* right
into the boards.
Keep Monday night free because
for students it will be the biggest
attraction of the season and the
cheapest night's entertainment
tliey can find.
By BOB BRODIE
Last Saturday morning the powerful UBC crew, stroked by Glen
Smith, defeated teb best oarsmen
In Oregon by seven lengthB (a
length Is GO feet) going away. The
r-.cing conditions were ideal. There
was little driftwood, no wind, and
the police boat was on hand to
keep harbor craft away from the
course.
Before the race, veteran coxswain Jerry Rendell took advantage
of the conditions and warmed un
the Crew with a two-mile prllmin-
ary row. When he finally brought
his Crew up to the starting line
they were rowing a long smooth
stroke and were showing the per
feet form drilled into them by
Coach Frank Read.
LOTS OF CONFIDENCE
UBC, noted for Its brilliant racing starts, pulled ahead three-
quarters ot a length when the gun
was fired. Not satisfied, with this
preliminary lead ,Smith "took lip
the stroke" to 37 strokes per minute and led the Crew In a driving
sprint which soon opened up a
length of open water between the
shells. Certain that the Crew
could maintain this fast cadence,
Smith continued the mad sprint
and the, UBC shell pulled farther
i,and farther away from the Oregon
boat.
The mighty Birds flashed acrous
the finish line in the fast time ot
7.01 with the outclassed Oregon
boat trailing seven lengths behind.
It is noteworthy that Coach, gead
let the Americans use the new
Kelowna- built racing shell and ln
doing so sacrificed the advantage
of the lighter boat.
WE HAD LOTS OF TRAINING
This was the fastest time that
has ever been rowed in <a meet
between  Oregan  State  and  UBC.
Something New Has Been Added
We guarantee things will be different for th*e next
issue of the Ubyssey sports page on Thursday. There has
been rumours of a revolution in the athletic underworld of
UBC and the sign "Under new management" will be displayed on this page for one day.
True to their promise, Art Phillips and John Southcott,
will write the copy for the issue. It broke Hutch and Al's
hearts to have to give up the page for one day therefore
releasing them to try and salvage something from the
Xmas exams. Their bodies can be found in the women's
John in the library basement, studying . . .
This win, which was made possible
by extensive training since Vat-it-
ity opened, allowed UBC to retain
the much-coveted Egg Cup. Our
hats are oft to these, men of the
Varsity -Eight and we expect that
they will go on to even greater
victories in the Regattas next
spring. The stalwarts are: Bow,
John Warren; 2, Dave Spalding; 3(
Pat Jackson; 4, Bud Pulton; r,
Gerry Sager; G, Hank Matheson;
7, John Drinnan, Stroke, Olen
Smith;   and  Cox  Jerry  Rendell.   -
The J.V. race whicih wa» rowed
before the Varsity race with Oregon in the new shell, was a real
heartbreaker. Oregon made a fast
start and pulled away ode-half
length at the gun but Varsity
gradually overhauled them. UBC
was leading by a scant six feet at
the quarter and held this position
till almost the end ot the race.
With only 100 yards to go, Oregon bagan to slowly creep up on
UBC until they were bow to bow.
In the last ten strokes Oregon
moved out ln front and defeated
the hard fighting J.V.'s by six
fefet. The'official times were Oregon 7.30 and UBC 7.P1.
