NFCUS Reform   Hopeless'
Anti-Red   Ross
New   Pub   Editor
"Pinko tendencies" on the UBC campus will be
scourged next year when God-fearing, conservative Sandy
Ross assumes office as Editor-in-Chief of the Publications
Ubyssey  staffers   elected   Ross   Monday   to   succeed
.Stanley Beck as Editor. The staffers' decision was later
approved by Students' Council.
Wealthy scion of a fine old Ontario family, Ross is
noted for his conservative tendencies. He has promised
to "scourge the communist menace at UBC," and to install
George Drew as president of the university.
This year, in addition to his duties as Managing Editor,
Russ collaborated with Rod Smith on an advertising
column, "The Tie Bar" for a downtown haberdashery.
Campus communists have also protested the "reactionary
tone" of the column.
An enthusastic fraternity man. Ross said he would
get his Phi Delta Theta fraternity brothers to aid htm in
his crusade against communists.
Campus LPP leader Jim MacFarlan labelled Ross a
'black reactionary tool of the Canadian Manufacturers
Incumbent editor Beck commented: "The students got
what they deserved." (

Lame   Leader
We are among those who think "Hallelujah" is the only
word to describe President Eisenhower's decision to seek a second term of office next fall. The decision is one that effects
every individual outside the United States as much as it does
the electorate of that country.
It is a decision fraught with foreboding and doubt. The
happiest thing about it from the rest of the free world's point
of view is that if a Republican is elected it will be Eisenhower
and not a man of the Knowland, Jenner or McCarthy temper-
If elected can the President do the job for another term?
Will he be a "half-time" President? Who will be his running
mate and will that individual be capable of stepping into
Ike's shoes in the tragic but not improbable event that he dies
in office?
If the past six months are an indication of the leadership
that Eisenhower's health will permit him to give to the U.S.
and consequently the free world then we think in deciding
to run he has done the free world a disservice.
For the past six months the free world has floundered rudderless on the high seas of communist advance. The communist
world has made more real gains during the past year than
they have at any time since Churchill informed the world
that an Iron Curtain had been dropped across half of it.
The United States answer to Kruschev's triumphant tour
across India's tens of millions of fertile minds was Billy Graham.
The ludicrous indecision over the shipping of 18 tanks to
Saudi Arabia brought more little needed enmity to the U.S.
Once securely in the grip of the Western World the Middle
East is today drifting, indeed running, into the hands of the
Soviet. What is the Western policy in the Middle East? The
U.S. has taken no firm leadership and consequently the West
has no firm policy.
The free world i.s today almost 100 per cent dependent on
the Uritcd States. It is the U.S. that must lead the way. That
they have not and that the West is in dire straights is direcly
attributable to the lack of a resolute mind and a firm hand in
the White House.
Is this the prospect for the future0 Is the free world
ot be guided by an invalid at the head of a board of directors
that is itself split on fundamental policy?
The U.S. electorate is being asked to pin the hopes of the
world on the heartbeats of a mortal man. We cannot help but
feel that in these troubled times we would like to pin our
hopes on something a little stronger.

The time has gone when Canadian—or A merman—uniivursitics can look to Europ
either to the United Kingdom or to Germany from whom they borrowed so much in the past
—for the pattern of their future development. To say this is not to belittle British or
German university education.
sponsive to the needs of the
contemporary society as are the
German Universities.
It is rather to record the fact
that the social functions of the
Canadian (and American) University are in very considerable
de gree different from those of
the European University, and
unless we want to—and can—
change our social terms of reference, we have no option but
to accept our own tradition and
continue to develop it as best
we can. There is a lot to be
done before we can feel that we
are doing our own job well. We
won't, however, do it quicker
by doubting the validity of our
own tradition and by looking
over our shoulders at the older
European traditions which are
no longer transferable to the
North American continent and
In the first place—whether
we like it or not—(and I for
one like it) our University operates within a society in which
there is much more equality of
social opportunity than exists
in either Great Britan or Germany, and the Universities are
one of the most important instruments making for that relative equality. As a consequence, and particularly as we
receive increasing public and
government support, we can
not change our own social function in this respect unless the
society as a whole decides that
it can't afford to carry out the
educational branch of its total
social democratic program.
In order to maintain our own
standard of living and influence in an increasingly
complicated society and in an
increasingly technological
world, we have to produce an
ever-increasing number of educated technologists and also an
increasing number of men and
women and cultural enviro-
ment and can help operate it.
If we are to do this successfully,
we will have to' continue to
have the broadest possible
social base to our educational
system. We will have to effect
the release of all the intellectual energy we can develop from
the total social pool.
This is a problem which is
concerning the British very
much at the present time.
There are many in the United
Kingdom today who wonder
whether Britan can survive industrially and commercially on
the size of the present stream of
students now getting to the
The new civic Universities in
Great Britan are confronted
with the need for more and
better-educated technologists,
with the need for more and
better-educated social, political
and economic leadership. They
see their job much more in
terms of our Canadian and
North American Universities
than in attempting to reduplicate those unique institutions,
Oxford and Cambridge—or to
reproduce insitutions as unre-
It is not agreed that responsiveness to the needs of the
contemporary society is the
only function of a University.
The preservation of the culture
of the past is a vitally important part of a University's work.
But if Universities neglect their
responsibility to warn, coimsel
and advise the society of which
they are a part, they lose an
important part of their reason
for concern with .classical studies, and German Universities,
despite their great tradition,
are in grave danger at the moment of giving inadequate attention to contemporary social
studies in comparison with
their traditional classical and
scientific studies. If an over-
concern for the contemporary
and the vocational in higher
education makes for superficiality, an under-concern for
both makes for steritity.
The Canadian University has
to be concerned with the kind
of Society it is helping create,
with the new skills that society
requires and with the kind
of citizenship the contemporary
world requires if we are to
continue to inhabit it. Classi
cal studies have a most im*
portant part to play, but they
are a balanced part, along
with professional studies—for
the old and new professions-—
along with adult education, or
university extension, and along
with a necessary great increase
in post-graduate studies of all
kinds, scientific, social and cultural. The Canadian tradition
of higher education has staked
out for itself a much more comprehensive programme— so*
cial as well as educational —
than that which was earlier
inherited from Europe. This
programme does not have to
be apologised for. It needs to
be lived up to. In doing this
there is much wc can gain
from exchange of personnel
and experience in specific fields
with our European colleagues,
There is also much common
experience we can pool with
the British civic Universities,
who are in effect developing
along our lines. But first of all
we need more consciousness of
the values of our own tradition, and more confidence in
those educational insights
which have grown out of that
social democracy which is, to
date, North America's most important contribution to civilization.

Dear Sir,
In last Tuesday's edition of
The Ubyssey, Ted Nicholson
pointed out that rather than
spend our money to give Autherine Lucy an education at
U.B.C. we ought to support her
in her fight against racial discrimination in Alabama.
All peoples, as Christians
and lovers of freedom, ought
to help Autherine Lucy. But
even more so, we as students
ought to help a fellow student
fighting for the right 10 have
an education at the university
of her choice. Manitoba has
already given its support. Let's
all give our support too by urging our council to send a telegram to Ihe University of Alabama demanding that Autherine Lucy be reinstated immediately.
Yours truly,
Arts II.

Dear Sir:
Henke, his attackers, the
churches, and all the rest of
us see that a new sincere desire to share and be brothers
is needed to save us from the
atom and starvation; but it is
pathetic   to   see   the   churches
crying for our return, Henke
damning the churches, and his
opponents slandering Henke.
For not the churchmen, nor
Henke, nor his opponents, nor
I have a new religion to overcome the pattern of social
ideals and wants ingrained in
us that bind us to our selfishness and our danger. Our
world has not that strength of
self-denial and real, not nominal devotion to principle
which only a few people have
ever had. I only wish the second coming were at hand, for
it appears that nothing less
could shake us from our bickering and our cross-accusationg
of failure, and set us on the
path of Ciirist's teachings.

Choice of  Play
Sitting through four hours of Shaw's long winded "Back
to Methuselah" was tiring, but sitting through two hours ol
"One Hundred Years Old" was completely exhausting.
The  biggest  mistake  of  the* ,
UBC Players Club in their an-  young, somewhat inhibited and
nual spring production last
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
nights was the choice of the play
itself. Although Shaw was windy in "Methuselah," he had
something to say. The four Quin-
tero brothers in "One Hundred
Years Old," rattled on through
three acts about lavender scented linen, Uncle Raphel's corpulence, the charm of ladies'
shawls, rain and radishes.
David Hughes as Papa Juan,
the sage old man who calls his
family together to help him celebrate his 100th birthday, saved
the production from complete
boredom. His portrayal of the
old man was real and endearing
and displayed almost professional polish of voice and gesture.
Although he was ably supported by Joanne Johnson as the
young, carefree and vivacious
Currite, and John Maunsell as
her periodically dashing lover
Trino, whenever the old man
was not on stage the production
seemed to drag along wearily.
The Spanish Noblewoman
Nona Marciala was lightly but
convincingly portrayed by Dan7
ica d'Honte and the shrewish,
pessimistic Dona Filomena was
for the most part convincingly
but not always consistently portrayed by Caroline Bell.
Marion Poggemiller as the
lively Spanish servant girl, displayed good voice but too much
i mugging. Janice Beairsto as the
suppressed daughter of the
shrew was sometimes convincing
but not enough to make her role
come alive.
Lee MacKenzie as the philo*
sophical farmer and Howard
Johnson as the aging and win*
ning husband of the noblewoman and host to the party, were
stiff and unexpressive and fail*
ed to reach the audience M
Walter Shynkaryk as the re*
volutionary village drunk, babbled incoherently for ten min*
utes during the course of the
birthday "party" which to my
disappointment proved to be
the deadest affair of the evening.
As for the plot—I failed to
detect any. After all the preparations for the party were dealt
with exhaustively in the first
two acts, I waited hopefully
for the gala event which seem*
ed to be the only bright pros*
pect in view. However, when > It
arrived in Act III it seemed no
brighter than the rest of the
play, except for the effective
set and colorful costumes,
Directed by Sam Payne, "Ofce
Hundred Years Old," a "gay,
warm, comedy," displayed little
gaiety, little warmth and little
comedy, If the Players Club are
to be criticized for anything,
it is for their choice of play
which was an insurmountable
handicap even before they don*
ned their colorful costumes.

First of all, I would like to

the point of view of student administration and activities. I

Bote of the contribution to this

who is retiring after seven years
of service to the students. His
contribution has been outstanding, but I feel sure that Mr. E.
MacDonald will capably handle
the arduous task of business
manager of this society.
I would like to deal specifically with several of the activities which have been carried on
this year.
NFCUS-National and Local
ip  Conference
The idea of having a Leadership Conference originated from
the PSPA Conference held in
San Diego in May of last year.
The organization of the Conference which was held at Camp
Blphinstone from September
30th to October 2nd was very
ably handled by Miss Maureen
Sankey, president of the Women's Undergraduate Society,
and her hard-working committee.
There were approximately 100
attending thc convention, including nearly all the presidents of
the undergraduate societies,
club presidents, several students active in campus affairs,
and also approximately 15 members  of  the  administration.
The conference consisted of
fceveral discussion groups relating  to student problems and
campus affairs generally. There
was also ample time for recreation and other special activities.
This year, being the inauguration year, was in the way an
However, it is my opinion
that this was one of the most
beneficial things that this council undertook, and it is my recommendation and hope that
this conference will become an
annual affair, as I believe it is
the best method we have found
yet of creating student interest,
and of giving the students an opportunity to be heard, and also
to inform them of the activities
of their Students' Council. This
recommendation is probably
superfluous as I think both faculty and students alike were
impressed by the usefulness of
such a conference.
New   Brock   Extension

1955 Spring General Meeting

develop bowling facilities is in
the Brock, and it is our hope
that at some time in the future,
it will be possible to provide
such facilities in connection with
our Student Union Building.
However, at the time that the
Board vetoed the idea of bowling alleys, they also approved
in principle the balance of the
of  $18.00,   should  be  allocated pians for the Brock, and agreed
ot some worth-while building
project which would directly
benefit   the   students.
With this in mind, your Stu-
* dents'  Council recommended to
the Fall General Meeting that a
$5.00 fee should be carried on
for a  period of seven years in
order  to   provide  an   increased

This will just be a short
comment as Mr. Hutchison
will be making a full report i
to you at the General Meeting. |
As far as Women's Athletics j
are concerned, there has been j
more participation than ever j
before, and I feel that this ,
field will continue to develop.
With the sale of 1500 Athletic Cards and the increased
financial aid from $3.20 to
$3.60 per student, Men's Athletics have been put on a
sound financial basis for the
first time in many years, and
this should help to produce
better teams as the years, go
This year we were in the
fortunate position of having
a man who was extremely capable of looking after student
funds. New systems have been
set up and increased activities have taken place, due both
to Mr. Conray's ingenuity and
also to the fact that the Council has had more money available than at any time in the
past six or seven years.
I do not intend to go into
an extensive report on the financial status of this Society
because Mr. Conway will be
making his own report, other
than to say that this Society is
in extremely good financial
Student Court
An attempt was made at the
Fall Genera^ Meeting to amend the Constitution of the
Student Court, but this amendment was defeated and the
Court has continued to operate under the system that it
operated last year. I feel that
the set-up as it now exists is
a good one and that constitutional revision is not the answer to an improved administration of iusice. The Court is
very young on this campus,
and I fool that as it progresses
it will determine, by trial and
error, the best method of
handling individual cases
This year tho students of
this University have been fortunate in having a student
newspaper which is somewhat
indicative of student opinion
on this campus. This, as you
probably are well aware, is in
direct contrast to the previous
year's  Ubyssey.
There is, I feel, only one
criticism which can bo Ultimately made about this year's
paper, and that is the almost
complete lack of editorial comment or criticism on the activities of the Students' Council. The Publications Board
has been very energetic in producing two issues of the "Ravel'
and one issue of "Pique1, a new
humour magazine.
In spite of their somewhat
ill-founded optimism regarding sales, these publications
have been generally well-
received. Overall, the publications of the Alma Mater
Society this year have been
handled in a most efficient
Before getting into this difficult  and  confusing  problem,  I
specifically   desire   to   separate
my comments about the national
organization as contrasted with
the local. 1 feel that Mr. Marc
Bell has done a very good job j
with the local NFCUS commit-j
tee   within   the   bounds   of   his!
range and activities.
However, my opinion of thc
national NFCUS organization is
exactly the opposite. Mr. Longstaffe, Mr. Bell and myself attended the NFCUS conference
held in Edmonton in mid-October and were sadly disillusioned
not only with the organization
and executive, but also with the
conference itself.
To go into a long and detailed
report of the conference would
be of little value.
However, to sum up, it Is
enough to say that a discussion
oi every conceivable scheme
and plan was carried on for
five days and to all intents
and purposes for five nights,
with the end result that little,
if anything, was accomplished.
It is my firm belief that a national student union is a necessity and could be beneficial to
all students of Canada.
However, I think the NFCUS
organization has reached such
a chaotic state that it would
be impossible to reform it from
within. That is the main reason
that the Council Is recommending to the Annual General Meeting that UBC withdraw from
NFCUS and that the money set
aside for the organization be
used to attempt to set up a new
national student union of which
students of Canada could be
proud, rather than their present
attitude ranging from disinterest
to disdain.
Having attended this conference, and upon returning to
UBC, the Council set up a
NFCUS Investigations Committee under the chairmanship of
Mr. Longstaffe. Their recommendation was approved by
Council and will be decided
upon by you at the General
Meeting. i
World  University  Service
This organization, in direct
contrast to NFCUS. is well organized and carries on an extremely worth-while program.
At our semi-annual mooting held
in October, 1955, the students
made an exceptionally wise decision in allocating their funds
not only for exchange scholarships, but also for WUSC's International Program for Action.
This move was long overdue
on the part of UBC and should
strengthen the World University
Service right across Canada. At
the WUSC conference which was
held in October in Saskatoon
and attended by Mr. Peter Kros-
by, the WUSC chairman, Mr.
Longstaffe and myself, a motion
was passed at the instigation of
UBC that if possible all universities pay SI.00 per head to
WUSC as was presently being
done by the University of Sas-
kachewan and UBC.
Since that time, the University of Western Ontario has implemented this plan, and there
is every reason to hope that Mc-
Gill and several other universities will follow suit. Until such
a plan is firmly established, the
future possibilities of WUSC, in
I my opinion, are extremely
i limited.
The Exchange Scholarship
Program carried on at UBC over
[ the last eight or nne years has
j proved to be very' satisfactory,
I and plans are well under way
i to brng another five students to
: this campus next year.
UCC,  USC  and WUS
All these organizations have
had a moderately successful
year, and the chairman of each
respective group has done a good
job in directing their activities.
These organizations can be and
should be utilized to a greater
extent thatn they were this year
in promoting activities not at
present directly under their control. Again I must reiterate that
the Leadership Conference is
an excellent opportunity for
them to become acquainted with
tho overall problem of student
government and to take an interest beyond thoid own little
club or group. USC has tentatively a new member in their
ranks, namely, the Arts and Science   Undergraduate   Society.
I would like to see it continued and I feel that it should
grow gradually and not attempt
lo bite off more tnan it can
chew. If it follows this plan
1 think it can gradually develop
into a worth-while organization,
but that if il does not, it is
doomed lo failure.
I USC, at present, is in the
' process of ro-valuating its func-
I tion and its recommendations
I should be helpful to next year'i
j Council.
j I would like again to thank
j everyone who has worked with
1 mo this year, and who have con-
! tributed to a very useful and
i interesting year of student ae-
, tivities.
1 would like to wish Mr. Jabour  and   tho   entire   incoming
i Council   tho   best  of  luck  next
year   in   their   duties   as   your

Wilson Wins Top Post
Without Opposition
An attempt by engineers to break up the election meeting
of the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society was foiled
Newly elected ASUS president Tom Wilson was outlining
a program for next year following the elections when engineers
tried to get past the locked doors of F and G 100.
Unable to get by the doors, the redshirts tried to lock
the quorum-plus meeting inside the room but were foiled by
newly elected secretary Terry James who pushed the door
open and called the engineers "a bunch of overgrown children.'*
An attempt to pilfer two ballot boxes was also foiled by
the artsmen.
Both Wilson and James were elected to head next year's
Arts Society by acclamation. Also elected by acclamation were;
Walter Shynkaryk, treasurer; members at large B. Morgan
and S. Singh; and USC representative B. Wright.
Contested seats were won by Jim MacFarlan, vice president; and Ernie Ledgerwood, publicity chairman.

Election   Innovations
This year, several innovations
in  the election procedure were!
tried  out  and     I     think     have
proved  to   be   reasonably   satisfactory.    These are namely: the
extension   of   camaigning   until ]
voting  closes;     the     placing  of
polling booths in both Fort and:
Acadia   camps,   the  renewal   of1
making the    results    public  as.
they come in from the various
polling stations; and finally, and;
I think most important, the set- [
ting up of a Nominations Com-!
I believe this is the first year
in over ten years that not nne
single position on Council iva«
gone by acclamation. This is in
part due to the interest created
by the Leadership Conference,
but in the main I feel this wa-
due to the initiative and imagln.
ation of the Nominations Committee under Mr. Dave Hemp-
I would strongly recommend
that these innovations be continued, and that every effort
be made to find new ways of
increasing the efficiency and in«
terest in AMS election.*.

The council decided in April
of 1955 that they would make
every effort to convince the delegates at thc 1955 PSPA Conference, which was held in San
Diego, that this year the convention should be held in Vancouver. With this in mind, the
Council sent along Mr. Longstaffe, Mr. Conway and myself
to San Diego well-armed with
propaganda about the virtues of
Vancouver in general and UBC
in  particular.
With the extensive work done
by Mr. Armstrong in sending
out special invitations to each
school, a one-page flyer of "The
Ubyssey" and a scroll invitation
signed by Mayor Hume and
President MacKenzie. we were
successful in convincing the
delegates that there was only
one place to hold the convention
this year, namely, UBC.
First of all I should explain
that the Pacific Student Presidents' Association is an association made up of the incoming
and outgoing presidents of the
student bodies of all universities
in the 14 western states plus
They meet together to discuss
mutual problems and to endeavour to obtain a general overall understanding of the dilfe-enl
forms and methods of student
government. Early in October.
1955. the Council called for applications for Executive Director, PSPA and shortly there-
alter appointed Mr. Jim McDonald to head that committee.
Plans have gone forward  very
satisfactorily to date.
The Georgia Hotel, which wilt
be the convention headquarters,
has been booked from May 9th.
to 12th, an airplane tour of
Vancouver and surrounding area
and a boat excursion to Nanai-
i mo and return has been ar-
' ranged.
To date we have received confirmation  from  65  schools  and.
j have been notified that  140 del-
I egates   will   be  attending.   This
: is an exceptionally good respone
for this time of year, and I feel
sure   that   by   the   time   of   the
convention thc number of schools
will probably  reach 85  and the
number of delegates over 200.
Special entertainment and out-
, standing  speakers  such   as  Victoria Times editor Bruce Hutchison   and   UBC President   N.   A.
M.   McKenzie   have   been   lined
up to entertain and educate tin
delegates. Having the convention
in  Vancouver  is  an  exceptional
opportunity   for   those   member.-
of   next    year's   Council    to   he
■come    familial'    not    only    with
their   own    particular   interests,
hut   also  with   the  overall   problems of student government generally.
Finally, in concluding this portion  of  the  report,  I   would  like
to say  that   to date  Mr.   McDonald and his committee have done
i an excellent job, and I fee] sun
j that   this  convention   will   prove
' to   be   very   successful   and   will
be  of  benefit   to the  Universih

The annual B. C. High School
provincial tournament, inaugurated in 1945 at the New Westminster Y.M.C.A., will be held
at UBC War Memorial Gymnasium from Wednesday to Saturday of this week.
This year promises some of
the best competition ever seen,
as 16 evenly-matched basketball
squads will attempt to take home
the George Sparling trophy won
by the tall Trapp Tech crew last
Last Saturday the Magee five,
coached by old UBC warriors,
Jack Shippobotham, and Gundy
McLeod, upset the early favour
ed Lester Pearson crew after
two overtime periods 71-69. The
win by Magee renewed the confidence of the outside teams,
who figured Lester Pearson was
the uncrowned champ.
With the Magee win, a three
way battle looks ln the offing
with Magee, Lester Pearson and
Victoria High centering the attention. Alberni High, last year's
finalists, Clearbrooke Mennonlte
School, Mission and Vancouver
College are the dark horses
and could provide a few big
surprises before the tournament
is over. Also expected to make
a few upsets are Cumberland,
Salmon Arm, Esquimau, Lang-
ley, West Van, Oliver, John
Oliver and Castlegar. The Fraser
Valley champion, North Surrey
quintet, matching Lester Pearson for height, will also prob
ably figure high in the competition.
Growing from a small invitational meet organized by Trapp
Tech and Duke of Connaught,
the tournament has become one
of the outstanding prep school
competitions of the province.
This year, hundreds of students
have brought honors to their
school by earning a tournament
berth through zone competition
and they won't stop here. Some
of the finest, cleanest and most
sportsmanlike competition will
take place in the UBC gym during the week.
Student tickets are available
in quantity for the price of 50
cents. This ticket is valid for
all games.

Varsity soccer team sported
a revamped look last Saturday
when they dumped Dubbelwares
5-1 in a Mainland League First
Division contest.
Still smarting from their first
loss of the season the previous
week-end, Varsity racked up
their fourteenth win and moved
back into first place in Mainland play, two points ahead of
idle Mount Pleasant, who have
a game in hand and were busy
in Provincial Cup competition.
4-0 AT THE HALF       	
The Birds took complete control from the opening kick-off
when Ashdown scored three minutes into the first half. He was
followed by Fred Green and
Dave Wood before he notched
his second goal before half time.
The Dubbels got their only '■
goal midway in the second half. ,
Ernie Kuyt finished off the scor- j
ing by heading a corner kick j
past the Dubbel's goalie. j
On defense the Birds showed
a new look. Former inside right
Frank Sealy was moved to fullback to partner Harry Nicholson and played an outstanding !
game. '
On the forward line Dave
Wood and Ernie Kuyt led the
attack. Besides getting a goal
himself, Kuyt had three assists.
While the Birds were at West
Memorial trouncing Dubbels, the
Fourth Division Chiefs lost 3-1
to Sunsets on campus. Neville
Gow was the Chief's lone marksman.
Since it has been decided that
Varsity will travel by bus to

The game featured the best
hockey seen in thc province this
year with both squads exhibiting crisp passes and exceptional  speed.
The point Varsity gained from
the draw boosted the team into
a first place tie with UBC, the :
second campus team. Each squad
lias 12 points, but Varsity still
lias two games in hand. North
Shore remained in fourth spot
with 7 points, four behind third
place Cardinals.
UBC was idle over the weekend, having their scheduled contest with the Vancouver club
cancelled due to ground conditions.
Norwests' forwards and hard-
tackling backline kept the Varsity attackers off balance all
afternoon. Although UBC dominated the set scrums and line-
outs, their backs broke through
only three times in the entire
match, due mostly to the fine
defensive play of Norwests'
backs, and bad passing by Varsity.
Missed penalty kicks also
proved costly for the Birds, as
they made good on only one out
of six attempts. Pete Tynan
missed one golden opportunity
when UBC was awarded a penalty squarely in front of the
posts, about 25 yards out.
Norwests controlled the play
in the early stages of the game,
keeping Varsity pinned in their
own half, and, at the 15 minute mark centre Gordy Hemingway got away from Donn Spence
and bolted 30 yards for a try.
The convert attempt by Dave
Block was good.
Norwests were penalized 14
times, Varsity four times.
In the last 15 minutes of play,
Varsity constantly had the pressure on the Norwests defence
but were unable to cross the goal
' Varsity coach Albert Laithwaite was unhappy to say the
least. His only comment was,
"I'm disgusted." Possibly overshadowed by the losing performance of Varsity was the steady
play of both scrum half Peter
Tynan and fullback Roger Kron-
quist, who recovered magnificently from a shaky performance
in California.
Varsity's only chance to retain the McKechnie Cup lies in
Victoria defeating Norwests Saturday.
In a Carmichael Cup game on
thc Aggie Field, Tomahawks defeated North Shore 13-0. Leading 3-0 at half time, Tommies
opened the second half with a
rush,  scoring   10  points  in  two

through, they were stopped by
the sheer hustly and determination of the Norwests. Ted Hunt,
who probably made the least
number of mistakes per chance
of making one, broke clear once
Doug Muir dribbled the ball
50 yards off the kick-off, and
Bruce McAlpine fell on the ball
for the try. McAlpine, who had-

Soon after half time, Norwests lengthened their lead to
8-0, when Dave Block made good
on a penalty kick from the 35
yard line. Dave Morley countered for the Varsity soon after,
finally converting one of Norwests' mistakes into three points.

New B.C.
UBC Braves won the B. C.
basketball championship last
Saturday night with a 113-88
total in the two-game total point
series against Alberni Junior
Men. After losing Friday night's
game 61-39, Alberni came back
to take Saturday's contest 52-49,
falling short of the title by 19
Braves coach Peter Mullins
said that he never would have
thought that his team would win
the title when he took over the
coaching duties early in the season after five losses. "But," he
said "the boys had spirit and
acted as a team; that in itself
gave us the title. Every kid on
the club regards himself and
his teammates as eque! in basketball ability. In my books,
they're all stars."
Spirit was the deciding factor
this weekend for the Braves.
Knowing they would be unable
to continue on to the Canadian
playoffs, the Varsity students
kept their spirits up and focused
on their immediate goal, the
B. C. title.
On Friday night, the Mullins
quintet played like champions
as they went ahead after battling
on even terms for the first seven
minutes to run up a four point
quarter lead and ten point half
time lead.
Following the intermission,
Braves stepped up the pace and
played good control ball. Nothing was to be desired in their
shooting as they hit well from
the outside. Every first string
player scored more than five
points in the last half as the
Braves outscored Alberni 17-12
and 23-16.
Ray Gailloux was the standout
for Alberni scoring 11 points,
eight coming in the final quarter
before he fouled out. Gailloux,
who plans to come to UBC next
year, seemed to be the only
spark on the team as he proved
himself invaluable on both de«
fence and offense.
Saturday night's game was the
big game for the bench strength
I as they saw action for more
I than half the game.
Proving that they weren't at*
tending the game just to keep
the bench filled, the Braves' sec*
ond string went out on the floor
and scored 15 points to keep the
Varsity out in front until late
in the third quarter.
The final quarter was a see«
saw battle but In the dying min«
utes, Alberni scored three fre«
throws to take the contest.
Lance Stephen and John Mc«
Nee were high scorers for Braves
with 16 and ten points respectively while George Kootnekoff
and John Vikstrom led Alberni
with 14 and  13 points.
