"I really appreciated the campaign spirit, and I shall do my

Asked to divulge some information regarding his past life, McRae modestly replied that "there

Citizens Puzzled
By Joker Stunt
PASSERSBY on Cordova Street
Thursday thought the unpredictable campus antics of the UBC
Jokers Club had landed them in
the toils of the law.
They saw Detective Angus Stewart on the steps of the police station hold about 25 members of the
club at bay with a sawed-off shotgun while Detective George Kit-
eon clamped handcuffs on 275-
pound twins Jack and Leo Levy.
But the whole thing was just
another of the Jokers' stunts, promoted by a letter in a Vancouver
morning paper declaring the Jokers

Imperialism Still.
Alive.. Dr. Clarke
IMPERIALISM is by no means
dead, in spite of the efforts of the
United Nations Organization. This
was the main text of an address
given by Dr, A. F. B. Clarke to
the IRC Thursday noon.
* "All big nations are on their
moral high-horses, attempting to
cover up their Imperialistic designs at the same time," he declared.
Dr. Clarke prefaced his address
by pointing out that it should not
be thought out of place for a Professor of French to speak on a
political topic, stressing - that an
acquaintance with the culture and
literature of foreign countries
could provide an excellent basis
for understanding of political
He deplored what he tormed the
apathy of Canadians toward current affairs, despite the efforts of
the radio and press, and the tendency to 'hand over all responsibility to the government."
"Dictatorship   develops   through
leaving government policy entirely
to the government," he declared.
Touching upon the question of
ths atomic bomb, Dr. Clarke quoted various authorities as stating
that there was no effective defense
against it. He asserted that super-
national power of some sort was
nv;cesary for control of this weapon.
Dr. Clarke questioned the so-
called "frankness" of the utterances
of Bevin and Vishinski. "Calling a
man a liar is frankness, perhaps,
but by no means old-school diplomacy," he said.
He emphasized the need for education of the individual to a new
and broader concept of loyalties,
exceeding those of race and
COTC Marksman
UBC's FRESHMAN debaters lost to Victoria teams both
here on the campus and at Victoria College in the annual
Frosh Debate held last Wednesday.
Here at the University  of BC,
Manson Toynbee and Bud Gure-
vich defended the resolution against
Victoria's John Young and Ronald
Grant, "that BC's liquor laws
should be liberalized." Supporting
the negative for UBC at Victoria
were Marshall Bray and Fergus
McKenzie, opposing Alan McFarlane and David Braid, the Islanders' home entries.
Bud Gurevich, first speaker for
the affirmative at UBC, attacked
existing liquor control laws, declaring that they were a source
of under-world profits and did
not discourage drunkenness. Gurevich pointed to the English pub as
being "infinitely preferable to
Canadian beer-parlors, which are
nothing but guzzling places."
"Moderation is to be secured
only through the liberalization of
the liquor laws," he stated.
First speaker for the negative,
John Young, stated at the outset
of his speech, that the purpose of
the  debate  should  be  to discuss
the best means of securing moderation in the consumption of liquor.
He quoted the findings of the
Rockerfeller Committee, declaring
that "only through state control
can the minimum unstimulated
demand be obtained," and added
that the trend in the USA was
towards state liquor control.
Manson Toynbee, second speaker
for the affirmative, asserted that
it was Impossible to restrict a demand commodity and that "human
nature must be taken into account."
"Our beer parlors should be
turned Into civilized places serving
food with liquor," he declared.
Supporting liquor control, Ron
Grant expressed doubt as to the
advisability of the English pub in
Canada. "The Englishman drinks
t,. promote good-fellowship while
the Canadian drinks to reduce inhibitions," stated Grpnt. He also
charged that private enterprise
would over-stimulate and thereby
increase present per capita liquor

the COTC rifle team. Led by
Lieutenant Aird, the team placed
second in the Reserve Army shooting competition held last Sunday.
Their 12 point total placed them
second to the 9th Armpured Regiment, with 15 points, and a long
way ahead of the 11th division,
with 8 points, 17 teams competed
in this shoot.
Bob Bath's high score put the
COTC team on top of the Bren
competition. He won a silver
cigarette case for his efforts. Bob
also hit the jackpot when he broke
a clay pigeon at 200 yards, in an
unofficial competition on the side.
Members of our team were R. A.
Bath, W. G. Robinson, R. V. Simpson, W. Young, R. G. Webster, W.
H. Cook, R. J. Efford, L. E. Cor-
nett, H. D. Nicholson, R. M. Reb-
ctson, and J. H. Kenney.
The increased interest in marksmanship may lead to the construction of a new rifle range on the
north side of the Armouries, says
Colonel Shrum.
VICTORIA is being subjected to "infiltration tactics" this week-end by home-coming
ex-Victoria students from the University of British Columbia, who have gone home "to tell
the folks" about the province'-wide UBC War Memorial Gymnasium Drive.
Additional boost to the drive was offered by this weeks edition of Time, which gives
a two-page pictorial and editorial spread to the UBC War Memorial Gymnasium Drive in
the Education section.   The history of the university is reviewed and the gymnasium
campaign is being given special prominence.   The theme of the piece is "Sis, Boom, Ah!"

The year-old Undergraduate Societies Committee yesterday gave evidence of "feeling its oats."
A joint meeting of the 1946 and 1947 USC's named a
committee to submit to Students' Council a criticism of that
body's past attitude to USC, and a warning for the next
year's council.
USC's admonitory statement will      ———^———————
be read at the coming joint meeting
of this year's and next year's
Students' Councils.
Decision to take this action was
made on a motion by Pat Fowler,
PUS president. A committee of
himself, Jack Beveridge of Applied
Science and one or two other
members to be named, will draw
up the statement.
The statement will supplement a
complaint made by USC in a recent
letter to Students' Council
Fowler said after the meeting,
"Students' Council has failed in
some measure to consult USC about
important financial questions. It
has not sufficiently recognized our
importance on the campus as the
only body giving direct representation to every student."
During the meeting Ronald Grantham, nominee for 1948-47 USC
chairmanship, declared: "USC is
perhaps the most Important part
of student government today."
Barney Murphy, Pre-Med representative, declared: "USC members don't know what powers their
constitution gives them." He
suggested giving a copy of the USC
constitution to each member.
Ted Klrkpatrlck, AMS presidentelect, urged avoidance of dissension
in carrying out the Memorial
Gymnasium drive.

Law    17 THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, February 16, 1946, Page 2
"Inefficiency" is an ugly word, especially
when applied to the activities of a pocketful
of busy people doing the work of a multitude, by representatives of a certain red-
shirted one-ninth of the university population, which at present doesn't seem to be
justifying its voting power on the campus.
Never before has there been such a need
for unification on the campus. We are
building a $500,000 gymnasium. Groups
which have never worked shoulder to
shoulder before on the campus are now
working side by side in this drive.
There is no one group on the campus who
can deny the need of a gymnasium.
But the Sciencemen, and to a certain extent, the. Undergraduate Societies Committee, have decided that Students' Council
is inefficient, and both groups appear to be
worrying more about substantiating their
claims of "inefficiency" than proving, by
whole-hearted support of the university,
that their existence is warranted by good,
hard, constructive work.
A great many of the pouts have been
occasioned by the fact that all bookings
were cancelled last Tuesday for the mass
War Memorial Gymnasium rally in front
of the Library, which, the protesters complain, was badly disorganized and "not as
important as undergraduate societies elections."
Elections are important. Approximately
fourteen important bookings were arbitrarily cancelled for the mass rally. But fourteen bookings or more would have had to
be cancelled any day from the beginning of
January until the end of March for the mass
pep meeting, which was, ln our opinion,
vitally necessary, and in fact, a week or so
But at this stage of the drive, the rally
is as important as a graduation ceremony,
which tends such supposedly intelligent
people out into the world, as the great
number who exclaimed confusedly before
this rally, "What campaign. Is there a
campaign going on?"
It is granted that cancellation of elections
is • nuisance and some undergraduate societies have cause for complaint. But a sense
of porj>ortion is necessary in all critics if
they are going to get themselves listened to.
We have heard the moan also that the
gymnasium publicity and the Ubyssey extra
have hampered AMS elections. We won't
waste the space to comment.
The grief of the Undergraduate Societies
Committee, which almost bubbled over in
a letter written to council accusing them of
"inefficiency" early this week but which
was quelled because the USC was not
unamimously in agreement on the letter,
was that they were not consulted previous
,   .   .   EDITORIAL PAGE   .   .   .
to the campaign. It is true that they could
have been "Let in on the secret," kept that
way for publicity purposes.
But although they are a cross-section of
student opin&m on the campus, and although they were not "Let in on the secret,"
the USC forgets that this campaign is a
joint student-alumni effort, not wholly an
undergraduate campaign, and that the President of the Undergraduate Societies Committee, their representatives, approved
support of the drive at a council meeting.
There were only five students, all of them
Student Council members with definite and
invaluable information at their finger-tips,
who sat on the central Memorial Gymnasium
Committee which launched the campaign.    e
It is also true that they could have done
a lot of work as a body on the campaign.
To date the Undergraduate Societies has
done little to help the drive and more to
hinder it. The master committee has definitely been at fault in not recognizing the
working potentialities of the USC.
But unless this group as a whole, and the
students feel that the university does not
need a gymnasium, they should stop throwing sand in the wheels of student government and instead oil the machinery of the
$500,000 gymnasium drive, the largest project the students have ever undertaken here.
No dissenting voices have ever been heard
in the previous student campaigns.
Charges of "inefficiency" are rather hard
to take from a large faculty group which
has heartily avowed their great devotion to
the Alma Mater Society through the years.
But first they should clean their own
closets before they charge other groups with
"inefficiency" and interests incompatible to
the university.
It's a minor point, but sciencemen have not
invited Student Council members to their
Science Ball. It is a major point which only
270 votes out of 1500 were cast by Science-
men in the elections for treasurer, when no
scienceman was running for office, as compared to a total of 25 percent of votes cast by
sciencemen in the presidential elections. We
are not casting reflections upon any candidate, only on the Alma Mater Society
patriotism of the redshirts.
Those accused of "inefficiency," the student campaign leaders, are working themselves ragged.
Keep your red shirts on boys, and look
before you leap into an argument which is
destructive to a good cause and not based on
rational reasoning.
You've got a chance to tell the rest of the
students what you're going to do for the
Gymnasium Drive in the Tuesday Ubyssey.
The Ubyssey editors are wearing armor
plate these days.

excu* of famine or bombed ruins,
it is a pretty accurate description
of our own artistic impasse. The
anticipations, if you were wondering, are for a book of Degas prints
I found and intend to buy, and for
the Markova-Dolin ballet-group
which will be here in a few weeks
—around March 22 if you want to
get your reservations . They will
only be here for one night this
time, henc\? the early warning.

IT HAS BEEN well said that no one
attempts to predict the weather hereabouts
unless he be either a fool or a newcomer.
Be that as it may, I hasten to assure my
readers that spring is not far distant.
In my walk about the Botanical Gardens
several days ago, I noticed that the berry
bushes were sending forth buds, that the
madrona trees had the gleam of life about
them and that the St. John's Wort was undergoing a mysterious vital metamorphosis.
How many, I wonder, are familiar with
the charming garden to the North of the
Brock Building? There is a charming
classical seat in an arbour there and very
soon now the grass will take on a lush
greenness and crocuses will bloom along the
small paths.
Supreme Delight
It is one of my supreme delights to sit
there in contemplation after a bout of
fencing in the Gymnasium.
I have long wished to set down some observations on the attire of University students and today I am bound to do it.
When I approached the Club's table in
the Alcove some two days ago, I was struck
by the brilliance, of Westmoreland's attire.
However, he was wearing a suit of the very
finest quality which I immediately recognized as a garment which his father had
commissioned for him as I accompanied him
to his tailors in Victoria.
I remember the day well for I had to go
in search of D'Arcy and as it happened, I
discovered him the instant before he had
purchased a most extremely cut jacket of
brilliant hue.
D'Arcy was of course disappointed with
the suit his father provided. He declared
it was dull and far too conservative and
stated his intention of remedying the general effect by further purchases. I saw the
result and it was disconcerting.
I have noticed several young men with
the same affliction. They are dependent
upon their parents for their major clothing
expenditures and in such purchases the
parents exert a considerable authority.
However, such items as come within their
own means destroy any sartorical splendours
which they might hope to achieve.
It was clear to me that Westmoreland's
father and myself were exercising judicious
care in the selection of his jackets. D'Arcy
himself was combing the establishments in
the lower streets in search of haberdashery
which is invariably in the most vulgar taste.
Judicious Care
How different is James Steadfast. Although his clothes are not of the finest,
he is always neat and pressed. His hose
are conservative and suspended adequately
(Westmoreland's are telescoped over his
foppish half-boots.), and his cravat is ever
quiet and moderate although I do not altogether approve of the machines he uses to
keep his collar precisely in place.
I have given this question much thought
and have concluded that there is a moral
to be drawn from it.
It is not unfortunate that in so many cases
the habits of sloth which wealth engineers
are brought to bear upon the best that gold
will buy while the habits of care and thrift
which small means produce serve only to
preserve that which in the beginning was
altogether mean and nasty.

The Editor
Dear Madam:
Before going any further, I
should like to say what a wonderful job the Jokers are doing in
their campaign to raise funds for
the new gymnasium. But why, oh
why do they have to follow up
their efforts with a goldfish swallowing fest?
I cannot understand the mentality of people who will go to
gape at such an exhibition. After
repeatedly racking my brains, I
am forced to the reluctant conclusion that the spectators came,
cherishing the fond hope that they
were about to see somebody choke
to death — and wouldn't that
have been funny? Ha Ha Ha.
I do not keep goldfish, neither do
I go around declaiming the rights
of our fishy friends, but dash lt
all, it must be rather hard on the
little blighters. Ever since looking
at the picture in Tuesday's Ubyssey
snd seeing the expression on the
poor defenceless thing's face as
it disappeared into Mr. Chutter's
yawning cavern of a mouth, I have
been haunted by fishy nightmares.
To look at it from another point
of view, I hope the human guinea
pigs know what they are doing.
I have heard of cats curling up and
dying horrible deaths under similar

Societies Committee
THE UNDERGRADUATE Societies Committee Is annually becoming a body of greater and greater
responsibility. If elected as its
chairman, I will ensure that:
1. The new faculties on the eampus are encouraged to form
strong undergraduate committees so that these new faculties
*  may be promoted and encouraged, on and off the campus.
2. Proposals and problems of all
faculties, after consideration
by the Undergraduate Societies
J Committee, are fairly and com-
/petently represent on the students' council.
3. The Undrgraduate Societies
Committee becomes a unifying
and strengthening force for all
faculties on the campus.
4. The Undergraduate Societies
Committee becomes a respected consultative sounding board
and body of reference rather
than continue in i ts present
disregarded role.
Tony Scott
as an organization with the prime
functions of:
A. Providing an effective bridge
or liaison between the student
body and the Student Council.
B. Fostering sympathy and understanding between Faculties
on peculiar and related problems.
As candidate, I propose to ensure
that USC fulfils these functions by:
1. Having as its members the
class presidents of each undergraduate society, thereby ensuring representation of every
2. Using the USC chairman's seat
on Council as a means of expressing combined opinions of
the students' sectional representatives to Council.
3. Bringing from Council to USC
any proposals or changes of
policy which are subject to the
approval of the students
through their USC.
4. Enabling each Undergraduate

' affairs.
Ron Grantham
Social Activities
I submit the following points as
the main body of my platform for
the position of Co-ordinator of
Social Activities.
1. I will endeavor to have one
university social function a
week with adequate attractions
and publicity to insure success.
2. I will clarify the duties of the
CSA in conjunction with the
Students' Council by amending the code of the AMS.

2. DcJ everything in my power to
make all special events a success and lend my full assistance to the committees responsible for these events.
3. Form a Co-ordinating Committee and so organize the
soical calendar that dashes
will be unknown and important
functions well spaced.
4. Popularize the Tea Dance.
5. Bend all my energies toward
all student and council projects especially those pertaining to the Memorial Gymnasium.
I submit my platform to you
with the hope that it will have
your full support.
-Bob Wilson.
Literary and
Scientific Executive
1. I believe that the most Important task that any LSI president must perform It to see to it
that every student ia engaged ln
some form of eampus life. For
no student can make any claim to
a full education if he has passed
his. college years without the
stimulating and refreshing experiences and associations that campus
organization* provide.
2. In view of the ' greatly increased AMS Income, I shall take
steps to have dub grants enlarged,
and to obtain for the campus aa a
whole an ever-increasing number
of noon hour pass features of the
highest calikre.
—Morris Berson.
FOR THE past two years I have
been an active member of the
Musical Society, serving as a
member of the executive and in
the orchestra. I am a scienceman
and a member of the Jokers Club.
This has given me an opportunity
to familiarize myself with the
clubs under the LSE.
I would like to see the number
of Special Events that are brought
to the campus increased and I will
try to better the stage facilities
of the auditorium. If elected, I
will try to promote the activities
of all clubs in the interests of the
members of the LSE and the general student body.
—Jerry A. Macdonald.
Society (WUS)
If elected President of the Women's Undergraduate Society% I
1. Pledge my first loyaltf to the
2. Endeavor to co-operate with
the other council members.
3. Try to bring the various
groups of women on the campus into closer contact with
each other.
4. Give special attention to the
problems of ex-service girls.
5. Attempt to arrange efficiently
the four major Women's Undergraduate Society functions,
viz: Freshette Initiation, Hi-
Jinx, WUS Co-ed, and WUS
6. Be prepared to meet any new
problems due to the completion of the proposed Dormitory
—Mary Dolmage.
I appreciate the honor of being
nominated for WUS president.
My platform:
1     Full  support    of    Red    Cross
Work while the need is urgent.
2. Continuance of present policies of student activities with
changes where necessary.
3. Close co-operation with other
campus organizations to the
benefit of all groups.
As Vice President of this year's
executive. I feel that I have gained the necessary experience for
this office and I hope that you will
support me on election day.
—Barbara  Kelsberg.
By keeping my platform free of
high-sounding campaign promises
I feel that it' can m accomplished
to the advantage of all the women
on the campus.
My platform is as follows:
1. Co-ordination of all women's
activities  including  co-operation with WAA, especially in'
promoting intramurals.
2. At least one formal co-ed
sponsored by WUS annually.
3. Social activities for returned
servicemen in which all the
women on the campus might
4. Sponsor a series of vocational
and fashion talks.
5. Full active support of the
Memorial Gym Fund drive.
—Pat Mayne.
I DON'T feel that I should present my platform for the presidency of the Women's Undergraduate Society with a mass of
obscure, unworkable points. Rather, I should like to present what
) believe to be my qualifications
for the position and to give some
general intentions.
For the past three years I have
worked on the Publications Board
in various capacities; among these
have been Editor of the Directory,
and Associate Editor of the Ubyssey and Totem. I am also working as UBC social reporter for the
News-Herald.  In addition, my ex
perience as Treasurer of PHRATERES and Secretary of Second
Year Arts, would enable me to
meet the many problems of WUS
with a broader understanding.
As well as supporting the usual
women's functions, such as the
Freshette Initiation, Hi-Jlnx, WUS
co-ed, and the WUS-WAA banquet.
I would work for women's representation at the conference of
the National Federation of Canadian Universities, which at present
is nil. Intramurals would receive
my fullest co-operation. To further
all these projects, I will see that
there is greater publicity of all
women's activities.
Nancy MacDonald
Women's Athletic
Association (WAA)
First of al), I wish to thank
those people responsible for my
nomination. I realize fully the
possibilities of women's sports next
year with tho new gym, increased
facilities and enlarged enrollment,
and if elected will try to further
in all ways athletics on this
1. Organzed invasion of other
colleges with various teams.
2. More types of intramurals
made possible by our new
gym. ,
3. A co-ordinator for athletic
activities. *
4. Change In elegibillty plans.
5. More publicity.
6. Full support of the Physical
Education Department.
—Pat Macintosh,
As a candidate for the position
of president Of WAA, I realize the
need for a strong women's athletic
organization. To achieve this end,
as President of WAA, I would
pledge myself:
1. To   co-operate   actively   with
the War Memorial Gymnasium
Committe to bring the cam- >
paign to an early and successful conclusion.
2. To work toward the establishment of a badly-needed Physical Education department.
3. To expanu inter-collegiate
competition with Western
Canadian and Amrecican Universities.
—Jenny Rodenchuk.
Junior Member
The coming term, with increased
enrollment and added faculties,
will undoubtedly be the most important in UBC's history.
Careful management and a
strong public relations program
directed towards our province in
particular", and other major campuses in general, will make us a
top ranking university.
My qualifications as a Law student   and   as   an   ex-serviceman
would, I believe, enable me to act
without bias on any problem confronting the AMS
I will endeavour to use my vote
on Council wisely, and in a manner most beneficial to the student
—Art Goldberg.
IF YOU CAN see fit to support
my candidacy for Junior Member
of the AMS, I shall do my utmost to carry out the following
1. Do everything possible to put
*h» freshman week and tht
homecoming week over the
2. Use my vote on council in the
best interests of the student
body at all times.
3. Do everything in my power to
build the War Memorial Gym
in '47.
4 Establish the employment bureau as a really effective agency
5. Improve relations among various campus organizations and
between the university and
the general public, two things
UBC definitely needs.
Boh Harwood
As junior Member my policy
would include the following
1. Full support of the War Memorial Gymnasium campaign
and full co-operaion with the
Alumni   Association   for   the
establishment of a Physical
Education Department aad
construction of men's and
wonin's dormitories on the
2. Extensive plans for Homecoming giving special attention to
all alumni recently returned
from the services.
3. Further co-operation between
all students and give special
attention to the needs of all
First and Second year students.
4. Aid in planning of a gala
orientation program for next
year's freshmen and freshettes.
—Harry Kabush.
AS THE duties of Junior Member are defined in the code of the
Alma Mater Society, I am not
making any radical proposals, because I won't have the authority
to fulfill them.
Instead, I promise to carry out
my duties thoroughly and enthusiastically, to the t>est of my ability.
I pledge my ACTIVE support of
all worthwhile suggestions placed
before the Students' Council.
I would improve:
1. Catering at functions,
2. The cleanup campaign,
3. Freshman orienation.

COTTON is not grown in Canada—our climate
is too cold. Very little Nickel is mined in the
United States — most deposits so far discovered there cannot be mined at a profit.
So Canada imports American cotton. The
United States imports Canadian Nickel. Each
product helps to pay for the other.
Canada produces 90 per cent of the world's
Nickel,  but uses less than  three  per  cent.
So we must  continue to export Canadian
Nickel if we are to continue to employ
thousands of Canadians in the Nickel mines,
smelters and refineries, and other thousands
who produce the lumber, power, steel,
explosives, machinery and supplies used by
the Canadian Nickel industry.
Canada cannot keep on importing from
other lands unless she exports Canadian
goods. By constantly seeking to expand
the uses of Nickel at home and abroad,
the   Canadian   Nickel   industry    brings
additional benefits to Canada.

with Don McClean
SPORTSWOMEN of the campus, the forgotten few in
the current War Memorial Gym Fund campaign, have
rallied around on their own.
Feeling they, too, are at least a part of the sports scene
on the campus, the sportsminded members of the fairer sex
have rallied to the cause and convinced the Vancouver Lawn
Tennis Club, who are staging the Canadian Badminton
championships February 28, March 1 and 2, that at least
part of the proceeds from the meet should go to the gym
So forthwith and with all good heart, the VITC have
decided to turn over all proceeds from the semi-final night,
March 1 that is, to the UBC War Memorial Fund.
Jokers Are Helping
This affair will be under the sponsorship of the Women's
Big Block Club and they are enlisting the aid of the Joker's
Club in a big ticket selling drive. The girls have undertaken
to sell 400 tickets on the campus, price SO cents each.
This will be the first tourney badminton since before
the war and will feature most of the big names of the past.
Such fellows as Johnny Samis, Jack Underhill, who has won*
the Canadian title more times than any one else, Jimmy Forsythe, Stan Hayden and the American doubles titlists from
Seattle, Law and Yeager.
Varsity Has BC Champs
In the women's field Jocelyn Pease, Canadian doubles
champion with Eleanor Young, and Clara Louete, Saskatchewan champion and semi-finalist in the last Canadian
championship tourney held in 1939, seem to be the standouts.
The Varsity entry should make a good account of themselves. Lois Reid and Barb Twizzel, former BC Junior
champions should be right in there on the final night. Kenny
Meredith, Murray Creighton, Jim Watt and Deny Thompson,
who all held the BC Junior title at one time or other, will be
flicking the shuttlecocks for the Blue and Gold men's squad.
So let's give the Women's Big Block Club a boast and
help ourselves at the same time.

Kappa Sigs Cop Touch Crown;
Robertson Tosses Payoff Passes
AFTER chalking up an impressive string of eight
straight wins, the freshmen stars from Lord Byng failed to
click in the game they wanted to win most. Thursday noon
saw the peach-fuzzed Lambda touch football artists bow out
to the powerful and lanky Kappa Sigs who reached high to
snag four touchdown passes unleashed from the whip-like
arm of hoopman Sandy Robertson and romp to a 26-6
decision and emerge champs of the intramural setup.	
Before    a    highly    enthusiastic  f
crowd, the fraternity men rolled
into high gear as Robertson faded
way back and tossed a 40 yard
flipper to Harry Kermode who
went the rest of the way for the
score, Before the Lambdas could
co-ordinate themselves for a rally
the pigskin hit the breeze again,
urms of Tommy Salters who was
left uncovered by the baffled ex-
But Lambdas   were   still   very
much in the game at this point,
and heady Bud Worth grasped the
pill tightly,  and hipped his way
through the frat men to romp 60
yards for a major score.
The tension proved too tough,
however, and the frosh outfit
muffed the convert, and loped oil
the turf at the half down by a
13-6 count.
The fraternity clan powered
their way into rangy in the second session, as Robertson heaved
a beautiful pass to the same Kermode who outreached a mob of
freshman and bring the ball down
in paydirt territory. The convort
was made good, and) the tilt looked as if it was on ice.
Jack Mee pulled down another
pass from Robertson late in the
game to extinguish any hopes thi
Lambdas might have had to knot
the count, and the scoreboard
signalled 26-6.
A stellar performance was turned in by the officialdom at the
game, as Les Wood, Bob Haas, and
Johnny Girling regulated the contest with a smooth skill tha:
pleased fans and teams alike.
The Lambdas one and all turned
in a brilliant effort, although tho
usual glimmer which had sparked
them to tht; last round burned u
little dimmer in the face of the
Kappa Sig powerhouse.

Herb Capozzi Pots 19 Points
As UBC Entry Takes Game Lead
THE VARSITY CHIEFS gave notice Wednesday night
that they don't flaunt a bad habit long, as they swung back
into stride after dropping their last two tilts, by scalping the
Stacy melonmen with a 54-43 axing.
Whooping up one of the fastest contests seen this year,
the chieftains ran their opponents to the ground, as their
condition carried them to the baskets often unhampered by
the older Stacymen, who had a mite of trouble lifting their
pins as the minutes flew past.

The Varsity Soph basketeers absorbed a narrow two-point defeat
at the hands of Arrow A's, who
pinned a 34-32 decision on them as

The Frosh five fared better and
climbed over Farina A's 40-36 in
the other Inter A contest, to take
a one game lead ln their semifinal series.

an all-round performance to spark
the tribe to the win in the action-
packed fracas, as he managed to
post himself beneath the basket
to plunk in the leather rather consistently, despite the Herculean
efforts of his check, cagy "Pop"
Pay. Our man Herbert did a
fair game of checking too, as did
thc rest of the student crew, for the
Shoemen began to consider themselves lucky if they got a clear
shot on the hoop.
The game opened fast with a
series of hectic rushes which cut*
minated in tie scores, until Capozzi
straightened out his sights and
hoisted the melon through the
hemp from under the ring, and
sank one seconds later via the gift
route to put the students ahead.
But the Stacymen roared back
into the fray to knot the count *t
17-all in the second period, only
to have the Varsity boys hit the
warpath again and sidle off the
court holding a narrow 31-28
margin under their feathers at the
half-time gong.
Art Johnson's pack bounded
back into the game out for blood,
and galloped to a 10-polnt lead
early in the third canto, and not
even the bevy of beauties gilding
the sidelines could inspire the Stacy
aggregation to stage a rally.
When Fred Bossons went off the
floor on personal grounds late in
the contest, the Chiefs went off

sank a brace of shots to close the
gep, but from then to the final
