Four Dorms Approved
Work To Start
Immediately
By ROD SMITH
Four shiny new dormitories—each Rousing 100 student;
may be ready when the University opens next fall
The president's committee on
housing Thursday approved
plans for the buildings. If the
Board of Governors concurs at
their meeting next week construction can start almost immediately.

SHOCKED LOOKS accompany the unveiling of AMS student privilege card pictures,
but there's no use in covering them up again because downtown theatres will not allow
student prices unless pix is on card. Today is the last chance to get shocked. Cards will
be distributed in Brock Hall from noon until 2:30 p.m.
Canadian Government invasion set
Topicof NFCUSSpeaker«* s*"***?
Canadian Senator J. W. Farris will speak on "How Canada
is Governed" Monday noon in the auditorium.
Senator Parris, long a leader *
in the Liberal Party, is a past-
president of the Canadian Bar
Association and ls one of Canada's most eminent lawyers.
The address by the noted
senator will be the first of a
bi-weekly series of talks on
Canada by the UBC branch of
the National Federation of
Canadian University Students.
Local NFCUS chairman Marc
Bell organized the series "to
give students an opportunity
to learn more about their own
country."
Other speakers in the series
will be British Columbia Attorney-General Robert Bonner
and R. W. Mayhew, Ambassador to Japan and ex-Minister C|TY COUNCIL

Today will be cloudy with
a few showers with little
change in temperature. Predicted low 45. high 56.
Today is your last chance
to obtain tickets for Saturday's Belllngham invasion.
Chartered buses will leave
Brock Hall at 5 p.m. and arrive in Belllngham in time (or
the kickoff at 8 p.m. They
will return to Vancouver at
approximately 12:30.
Cost for the return trip will
be only $2.25, including admission to the game. Cheerleaders will organize a cheering section when the fans arrive.
iAll those who prefer to
travel by private car will find
a warm welcome waiting at
the game. Pep Club officials
hope that at least 200 supporters will accompany the Birds
to meet Western.
WON   OVER
NEAR GARDENS
Site of the 2 million dollar
residences will be between the
Fraser River model and the
Botanical Gardens. Future
plans for the site provide for
another four buildings, raising
the accomodation to 800, and
three suites for married students, to be placed behind the
main buildings.
The long-discussed International House, the first unit
housing 100 Canadian and foreign students, will be situated
close by, it should be completed in another 18 months.
LIKE HARVARD
Committee chairman Dr.
Gordon Shrum explained that
the plan was essentially similar to the one developed at
Harvard.
"We'll have a large central
recreation hall and dining
room, with dormitories branching off," he said.
"1 hope to be able to build
for as little as $2500 to $3000
per student, and we can keep
adding dormitories without altering the main building."
Fort and Acadia campers will
be shown copies of the plans
this weekend and asked for
criticisms and suggestions.
Canada Aids Homecoming Parade Accepted
Asia Colleges
Student health and housing
projects of four foreign universities will be aided by Canada's
$6000 contribution voted at
Sunday's session of the World
University Service of Canada
convention in Saskatchewan.
Pledging continued support
for the international WUS program, the University of Saskatchewan convention will divide $6000 among universities
of Japan, Indonesia, Israel and
Pakistan.
WUS decided to continue to
give top priority to international students' problems.
Assembly concluded Sunday
night.
ROSEMARY   KENT-BARBER
"We've made it,' we've
made it," exalted triumphant
Parade Chairman Keith Liddle, on hearing the news that
City Council have at last approved plans for the November 5th Homecoming Parade.
Keith and the whole University have reason to be triumphant. After last years
traffic tie-ups City Council
forbid further parades. Firemen were turned down during  National  Safety  Week.
Council was finally won
over, however, by Liddle's
and other's impassioned pleading. Homecoming Parade is
on BUT only if all the floats
stick   to   the   right-hand   side
of   the   street.     "And,"   said
Liddle,   "all   floats   must   be
mobile, there can be no marching bands, for example."
BEST  ROUTE
Floats representing every
club and organization on campus will assemble November
5 at foot of Georgia Street,
go up Georgia to Burrard,
along Burrard and left to
Hastings and up Granville to
Georgia again. "It's the best
parade route we've ever had,"
said Liddle.
Selected floats will parade
around the Stadium at the
half-time break in the annual
Homecoming football game
against Central Washington
College. Best float as selected by the as yet unnamed
*
judges will be entered in the
Grey Cup Football Parade November 27.
RULES ENFORCED
Application forms for floats
will be available in the AMS
offices next Tuesday. Regulations concerning float sizes,
time for assembling, mobility
of floats and organization of
parade will be printed on
these forms and "will be most
strictly enforced," said Liddle.
City Council have warned
that if there is any repetition
of last year's traffic tie-ups
this will be thc last Homecoming Parade ever. Further information on floats can be obtained from either Keith Liddle, at AL. 0061, or Don Patterson  at CE. 9674.

Extension
Next Thursday's general meeting promises to be one of
fht moat important in tho Alma Mater Society's history.
A revolutionary, and we think excellent, budget, will be
up for your approval. The constitution under which your AMS
governs has been almost completely revised and will also re*
tlulre your consideration.
However, the most important proposal that we think will
be before you is the fund for the extension of Brock Hall.
The motion, which was approved by Student Council last
week and that will be presented at the general meeting is for
the continuation of the five dollar student levy for not longer
than seven years to provide funds for a $250,000 extension
to Brock Hall.
At present the levy is being used to pay off the Memorial
.Gymnasium debt. The debt will be retired by next September.
If Council's motion passes Thursday it is hoped that ground
will be broken for the Brock extension next Spring.
Student facilities on the campus are hopelessly overcrowded. Brock Hall can only be extended with student funds
and we urge you to vote those funds on Thursday.
Thank You Vancouver
Reprinted from the McGill Daily
McGiU's delegation to the third annual Paraplegic Bowl
football game played in Vancouver on Saturday, September
24, was given a taste of Western hospitality at its finest. The
fifty-odd members of the party, including the football team,
a mile relay track team, and several officials and guests of the
University, were flown to Vancouver by a chartered TCA
North Star airliner on Thursday. The early arrival was deliberate it was intended that the Montrealers derive a little
more from their journey than the athletic experience gained
by playing a football game.
The Vancouver branch of the McGill Graduates Society
provided a bus for the visitors on Friday which took them on
a tour intended to acquaint them with the physical character
of the western metropolis. They were dined, along with the
University of British Columbia football squad, that night at
the UBC Faculty Club. The supper was informal and gave both
teams a chance to meet each other and the coaches and representatives of both Universities.
The game was played on Saturday afternoon and attracted
over 5000 spectators. The proceeds, which amounted to $1000,
were to be used to aid the severely handicapped.
But besides the charitable aspect, the Bowl served another
purpose. It provided the opportunity for students from opposite
ends of the Dominion to exchange ideas and broaden individual friendships and views.
Canada is>a large country. Its Universities are spread
many miles apart, and as a consequence there seems to be no
coherent student opinion. Any effort "made to bring students
closer together must be considered worthwhile.
It is true that the college sports teams make many athletic
journeys over the course of the year. However, these usually
occur during the school term and are always strictly restricted
in time. Their sole purpose is the successful accomplishment
of the athletic mission. The Paraplegic Bowl has shown that it
can do more and still keep its financial chin above water. The
1955 trip has set a worthy precedent. Thank you Vancouver.
and now

Bv JOHN QUILL
It used to be, if you wanted
cooked beef instead of raw,
you made a tire in the cave
and shouted "Oog Bleh!" at
your wife. You got what you
wanted, no questions asked.
Communication has recently
become more difficult. For a
a dune a dozen, you can buy
"Dissertation on Harmonic
Contrapundalism In Genitourinary Cycle of Brachiated
Sponge." Or ln art galleries,
you can contemplate Tanguy's
"A Large Painting Which Is a
Landscape." Surprisingly, it
looks like a landscape. May-
bo luck, maybe coincidence.
Rarely, you get such beautiful and simple lines as Eerie
Birney's tribute to UBC war
dead: "We think they breathed the future and they died of
lt, and there alone's our solace. . . ."
FOMSD EXCUSE
Anybody can type (I use two
1 fingers) or slosh paint on canvas, but expressing an idea in
clear, permanent form ls one of
the challenging tasks in the
world. And in our rapidly
changing life, one of the most
important. •
Writing will always be an
exact and versatile way of
communicating. The English
language can be infinitely rich
in subject, form and meaning.
We are lucky if we discover
this only once in our work.
But few of us really make an
effort to be creative. The last
masterpiece we wrote was
probably our forged excuse for
two days' absence from high
school, or maybe a note about
an unpaid laundry bill.
There might have been a
tradition at UBC that "nothing
is sacred or above discussion."
Instead, it is far more acceptable to regard the campus as
a womb with a view, in which
one greedily and silently feeds
on bits of predigested knowledge.
RAVEN OFFERS SCOPE ,
There is one UBC student,
however, who believes in the
return of "Oog Bleh." He is Michael Ames, editor of Raven, a
gangling, whimsical, starved
character who spent last summer gathering material for his
honors essay in anthropology.
He's also an ex-newspaper man.
Ames took a gamble on Raven. With scant praise trickling
in for the first issue, he is getting set for a sparkling Christmas edition, complete with new
cover design.
All he needs is material. "We
will accept anything," he told
me in a quietly hopeful voice.
He wants manuscripts double-
spaced and preferably typewritten. Any received at the
AMS office before next weekend will be considered for the
Christmas issue.
But don't be eager for literary success. You'll communicate much better if you strive
for that quite personal, quite
profitless, free-wheeling early
stage of expression which is
still unconscious of itself as
art—which can still laugh at
itself. Raven needs it. Hot
sweat to you.

APATHY
Editor,   The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
The Ubyssey places a great
deal of emphasis on student
apathy and disinterest in campus affairs. In so doing it is
contributing much toward generating and magnifying that
apathy.
To the majority of students
The Ubyssey is the only means
by which they are kept informed of campus affairs and
activities. Because of this, any
attitude taken by your paper
has a great effect on the formulation of opinions by the average reader. Therefore, if The
Ubyssey adopts a negative attitude as regards student spirit,
and constantly manifests that
attitude in a series of discouraging headlines and subtitles,
then it can hardly ask the students for anything but more apathy, as it is loath to acknowledge the existence of anything
else.
As a specific example of this
negativism, I refer to your
headine of the 7th inst., "Stu
dents 'Not Interested'," which!
while controversial in itself]
was quite impertinent with rel
gard to the ensuing article. l{
served little purpose other thar
to aggrevate the "mass inferJ
iority complex" which yout[
publication seems intent on es
tablishing within the Alma Ma\
ter Society.'
I realize of course, your
awareness of the need to stimu-J
late the masses to think and to|
cultivate some small knowl-i
edge of the course of student!
affairs, nevertheless! I feel youl
would be better serving that|
purpose if your staff were able
to entertain a more wholesomel
outlook concerning school spirit.
I think that if on a long terml
basis, you played-up what spirit!
we have instead of criticizing)
us for that spirit wc have not.f
then you would be taking aj
great step toward the evolution"]
of a more united and effeciently |
co-ordinated student body.
Yours very truly,
John S. Butterfield,

SURPRISE   MOVE
ts Council Campaigns    |.——_,. a _£T_   T^  \/^j.^
or use Music School  Longstane I o Vote
The Community Arts Council of Vancouver has instituted
i campaign to create public support for a music school at UBC.
The Council has prepared a
brief to be sent out to organizations throughout British Columbia asking that letters be
sent to the Minister of Education Ray Willison in support of
the project.
A fund has already been established at UBC for the school.
Operation cost for the school
will be approximately $125,000
per year.
A staff of about 23 professors
will be required. Temporary accomodation now available will
be sufficient for the present.
A music building will eventually be required, as well os
40 pianos and numerous string
and orchestral Instruments.
COSTLY TUNE
This music building will cost
approximately half a million
dollars. The school could operate in its Initial stages with
temporary housing, but as soon
as the four year course Is offered this will no longer be
sufficient.
Curriculum of the school
would meet, the requirements
accepted for accredation by The
National Association of Schools
of Music.

Surprise election of council
vice president Ron Longstaffe
as voting delegate to the National Federation of Canadian
University students convention
in Edmonton was the highlight
of UBC's successful invasion of
the Saskatchewan World University Service of Canada convention.
Slated to attend both meets
as an observer Longstaffe was
as surprised as anyone when
he was nominated by a special
committee together with WUSC
Executive Director Lewis Perinbam.
UNANIMOUS
Both nominations were unanimously accepted by the 45
delegates representing 30 Canadian colleges.
Longstaffe is now attending
the NFCUS convention in Edmonton as a voting delegate
along with UBC representatives Ron Bray and Marcus
Bell.

TORONTO (CUP)—Students
at the University of Toronto
must pay a special fee of fifty
dollars if they fail their compulsory physical education
course, university officials announced recently.
This fee is to "compensate
for the inconvenience the student has caused the University," the Registrar explained.
Therefore it may cost a student an extra two hundred
dollars to graduate, as an official intimated that a student
who year by year failed PE
and paid his fifty dollar fee
each year, could graduate in
his final year.
Compulsory PE has also been
reduced from two years to one;
PE Is no longer considered "an
academic subject" said the
campus athletic director.

Other UBC successes at the
WUSC convention included
passing of a resolution calling
for a one-dollar-a-year levy on
every Canadian university student to pay for the work of
the group.
UBC and University of Saskatchewan, the host college,
were the only two charging a
one dollar annual fee. Set levy
will permit WUSC to predict
its annual baudget—currently
about $16,000—and plan its expenditures years in advance.
Campus WUSC chairman
Peter Krosby pointed out that
University of Toronto, with an
enrollment exceeding 11,000
could almost pay the costs of
the nation-wide group by itself with a dollar a head levy.
U. of T. currently pays for
WUSC through fund raising
campaigns and variety shows.

by UBC calls upon the central

The Civil Liberties Union
this year.
To help curb racial and religious discrimination, CLU
made a survey of downtown
Vancouver beer parlours last
year. Spearheaded by the leadership of Freda Messerschmidt,
the survey revealed that 5 out
of 90 downtown beer parlours
discriminated between mixed
couples.
The 054 findings resulted in
a meeting between downtown
hotelmen's association and CLU
to improve conditions for racial
minorities.
CLU's probe of bear parlours
had started on a small scale in
1992. Last year's survey discovered that three beer parlors had changed to a policy
of non-discrimination; formerly,
they had refused to serve certain people.
Al Forrest, CLU president,
said this year's survey would
find out if the five managements that practised discrimination last year still did.
Civil Liberties' surveys are
being stretched this year to
include cafes as well as pubs.
"Dates of the surveys will not
be announced so that the results will be more accurate,"
said Forrest.
President Forrest explained
how the pub-tours were carried
out: "Two separate groups of
people go into the beer parlor. One group contains mixed
races; the other group observes
the customer treatment. Later,
findings are compiled and publicized.
"Public opinion is our greatest weapon," said Forrest. "We
hope the pressure of public
opinion will make discriminating pubs change their policy."
Forrest stated that discrimination at UBC was not a serious
problem. "But we sometimes
get complaints from students
who have been denied membership in a sorority or fraternity."
"Arousing bitterness from
sororities and f r a t e r n-ities
wouldn't help the problem. All
the CLU crusades can do is
crystalize student opinion
against discrimination by any
organization."
"Sororities and fraternities
do have their place on the campus, as long as they don't create
bitterness by arbitrary rejections," he said.
"CLU has encouraged sororities and fraternities to change
their rules. We havent succeeded yet."
A mass rally of Civil Liberties Union held last Friday indicated a membership of some
45 students. Last year, there
were about 15 active members.
"If membership is any indication, interest in racial and religious discrimination at UBC
is swelling," said Forrest.
He said they planned to make
an award to the UBC student
who "contributes the most to
Civil Liberties this year." CLU
executive members are not eligible for the award.
President   Eisenhower  is
still sick.

Newman Club
Plans Course
In   Theology
Newman Club today announced plans for a basic course
in Catholic Theology.
Beginning Wednesday, October 19, it will be conducted
by Reverend Father T. S. Han-
ahan, C.S.B., M.A., M.S.L. as
a non-credit, extra-curricular
course.
The course is planned so that
no previous training in theology or philosophy is necessary.
The existence and nature of
God, the Trinity and Creation
will be the four areas covered
during the year.
It is the first time such a
course has been offered on the
campus. Newman officials told
The Ubyssey that though the
course is concerned with the
Catholic concepts of theology,
all members of the student
body and faculty are welcome.
The classes will meet each
Wednesday at 3:30 in Physics

became interested in the Communist movement when he
joined the Young Communist
League in the thirties. Since
the war he has been an LPP
candidate in both federal and
provincial elections.
The campus LPP spokesman
said "Mr. Rush will discuss the
general lessening of world tension since the Geneva Conference and the role of Canada in
the new atmosphere of peaceful co-existance."
The LPP#considers that a
great many possibilities exist
for increased trade and exchanges of cultural, sport and
student delegations with countries of the Soviet sector of the
world."

annual Long Hike.

THE UBYSSEY
Friday, October 14, 1955
A sturdy young man plunging into the icy water below
the dock demonstrated to the
newcomers t he remarkable
standards' of vigour and enthusiasm which the VOC expects.
.Club officials report a very
successful weekend with the
organization running smoothly.
Once the townsfolk had got
over the initial shock they
seemed to take to and even
like UBC's noisy ambassadors.
RESPECTABLE
The group bedded down for
the night in an old gymnasium,
with girls and boys confined
to different floors in accordance
with VOC ideas of respectability. Curfew was imposed at
10 o'clock to ensure an early
start Sunday morning.
Due to bad weather conditions the idea of climbing Ben
Lomond was abandoned in favour of a lesser peak, whose
name was never discovered.
Climbers report that the going
was better than last year despite several feet of snow. Said
lanky Jack Howerd, responsible for much of the organization on the hike "I was only
wet as high as my waist."
RIOTIOUS PARTY
The riotous party in the evening ended at midnight when
the snores of exhausted climbers drowned out the singing.
Bright and early on Monday
the more irrepresible people
took off for local climbs while
the others were taken on a
scenic bus tour. By the afternoon at least one group were
so glad to be leaving that they
ran the six miles to the boat.
The journey by boat to
Horseshoe Bay was unusually
rough with cases of sea sickness among the land lubbing
mountain climbers. Busses took
the party to Victory Square
in Vancouver where the usual
doubtfull lyrics were sung before the party broke up.
The Georgia is a popular
campus eating place. Thorn-
platz! We need you!
The question of whether religions are fundamentally the
same, or really different, will
be the basis of lectures to be
given every Tuesday and
Thursday until November 10
at 3:30 p.m. in room 103 of
the Arts Building.
All students are invited to
attend the series, which ls
sponsored by the President's
Committee on Spiritual Values.
Buddhism, Hindusism, Mohammedanism and Judaism
will be among the religions
discussed.
The lecturer will be Dr. W.
S. Taylor, who has been principal of Union Theological
College since 1048.    .
Before coming to B.C. Dr.
Taylor was head of the Department of Philosophy and
Psychology at Indore Christian College in India.
Dixon   Fights
Discrimination
Vital place of voluntary
groups in society's fight against
discrimination will be discussed by Professor William Dixon,
school of Social Work, today,
noon, in Physics 201.
The well-known professor—
a long-time worker in the field
of civil liberties—has named
his talk "What a Voluntary Organization Can Do For Civil
Liberties."
Professor Dixon is an executive member of the Vancouver
Civic Unity Association, a
downtown group working for
brotherhood between the city's
many racial groups.

Faculties  To
Pick  Queens
Homecoming Queen candidates this year are to be
chosen by each faculty. Candidates will be paraded at a
Pep Meet and at the football
game.
Voting will take place at
the Homecoming Dance where
each person will be given a
ballot.
Publicity for the candidates
is to be given by their faculty.
Posters, banners and parading
at noon hour have been suggested.
The winning candidate receives a silver bracelet and
tray and is crowned at the
dance.
Professor Frank A. Forward,
head of the UBC Mining and
Metallurgy Dept., who attended
the conference has praised the
conference as having made a
real advnace in publishing such
material which had been formerly classified as secret.
Professor Forward's main
criticism was of the lack of attention given to the training of
people to work in an advanced
technological age.
MOT ENOUGH STUDENTS
The availability of well-
trained people will determine
the rate of Atomic power production which will be required
to supply world energy In the
near future. At present there
are not enough students under-
going necessary university
training to meet such a demand.
"A plan on a national scale is
needed for educating many
more people in the general
fields of the sciences and engineering, and for training the
large number of technicians
that are  required."
In remedy Professor Forward
advocated a stronger emphasis
on science in the high schools
and in the technical institutes
with two year training programs.
He concluded that, "Canada
must take a leading role in
development of atomic energy,
since it is one of the leading
industrial nations."

"Of all the coffee I have
tasted, I like Campus Cupboard
coffee best."
This is the opinion voiced
by the majority of unbiased
participants in a recent survey
organized to determine what
was wrong with Caf coffee.
The scene of the test was
Brock dining room, Thursday
afternoon. The group of dubious volunteers filed obediently to their respective tables
and were supplied with the
necessary apparatus.
This consisted of three cups
of coffee, labelled A, B and C,
a glass of water, and a soup
bowl. The bowl was supplied
in case someone lust couldn't
bring themselves- to swallow
a mouthful of coffee.
The committee consisted of
ten professors and twelve students, some of whom were not
too convinced of the solemnity of the occasion. Maureen
Sankey announced: "This is the
most ridiculous thing I have
ever been associated with."

ceeded in spite of such outbursts, and each member dutifully downed at least one
mouthful from each cup.
Then a poll was taken, and
the tasters voted by letter for
the cup of their choice.
STBENOTN DETERMINED
When the votes had been
counted the strengths of the
various cups were revealed.
Cup A, which received eight
votes, was the medium
strength, having 2% gallons
of water to a pound of coffee.
Cup B, the strongest, received thirteen votes. It was
composed of 2Vz gallons of
water to each pound of coffee.
Cup C, the weakest, had only
three supporters, as it was
made with 3 gallons of water
to a pound of coffee.
The surprise of the day came
when it was announced that
cup B, the favored cup* was
the same strength that has been
served in the cat for years.
Phil Greenburg, a member of
the committee, brought out his
Junior Chemistry Set, to determine whether or not thia%
was true.
In a final survey, it was
agreed that no matter what
the strength no one liked the
brand of coffee that was used.
Said One taster, "They were
lousy."

After Second Wins
Varsity soccer team will meet Dubblewares m their
Mainland "A" Division soccer game at 2 p.m. Saturday at
Kensington Park.
The Birds are looking for
their second win after settling
for a draw against Army and
Navy last week.
Dubblewares is a new league-
entrant this season but Ed Lu-*
ckett's students have tangled
with them in past cup games.
In their last meeting the two
squads battled to a 1-1 draw.
Ed Luckett expects a win
Saturday, basing his belief in
*the teamwork his squad is
starting to show* and in the return of Bruce Ashdown.
ABHDOWN BACK
Ashdown did not play against
Army and Navy and his great
bcorbtt potential was badly
ntissed. High scoring Frank
Sealy partners Ashdown in
most Bird scoring thrusts.
The offense is fairly well
set except for the-center forward position where Len Bryce,
Larry Anderson and Joe Berry
are still battling it out.
The Varsity defense will remain intact with only Clive
Hughes and Ralph Phelps able
to move in to the veteran defense this season.
The UBC Chiefs host Bradner
on Sunday at 2 p.m. in a fourth
division tilt. Like Varsity they
have a win and a draw in
their two starts. New members
are still Joining tills squad
which Is turning into a real
powerhouse.
The soccer teams have acquired sole possession of the
new Mclnnes Field on the campus and all home games and
practices will be on this new
pitch.

Up a Man
For the past three weeks
tryouts have been held in the ,
women's gymnasium to choose ,
the Thunderettes basketball
team which will represent
UBC during the coming cage
season. They are entered in
the City B'League and their
opposition will consist of three
city teams, the Eilers, Sunset
and a new team this season,
Simpson Sears.
Last season the Thunderettes
Just didn't seem to have what
it took to get on tbe top of
their league. However, with
a man eoeehktg the team this
year, they feel that their
chances will be much better.
The new coach is Bill Savage,
who coached the South Burnaby Junior Athletics last season, and he is quite confident
that with intensive training he
has the material to put this
girl's rep team in the finals.
During tryouts there were
close to thirty-six girls pounding down the floor, and 12 of
these have been chosen. Six
of the old standbys from last
year have returned: Louise
Heal, Diane Somervllle, Pat
Goodwin, TrUdy Birch, Linda
Ghezzi and Barb Stafford. The
new players are Anne Snow-
sell, Victoria; Glenda Morris,
Edith and Marian Matheson,
Betty Best and one more, all
from Vancouver.
The girls hold their prac:
tices every Monday night and
play a scheduled league game
every Wednesday night at King
Ed Gymnasium. Later on during the season there will be
return games with Victoria and
Vancouver Normal School.

"We don't cut, we build."
This was the opening phrase
of Coach Jack Pomfret's f
speech to the 90 basketballers
who turned out for the first
practice session of the season.
He then added, "We will
select forty players for the
three teams and to those of you
who do not make either of
these teams, we would like to
help you in any way we can to
tarn a position on another lo*
cal team.
Pomfret also stressed the
need for top condition. As he
put lt, "With three games a
week, we will have to be in
shape (or dead)."
,%Wexi Thursday will -be the
start oi Pomfret* building and
with the young aggressive
turnouts, this should prove
very interesting. From the
high calibre material he has,
Pomfrets "building" should be
just about taps at the end of
the ae»$on.
Next practice will be held on
Saturday at 12:30.

Campus rugby teams took a
breather over tiie weekend as
heavy rains forced the - postponement of all games ln the
Miller and Bell-Irving Cup series.
The ruggermen welcomed the
cancellations which gave them
an additional week to prepare
themselves for their opening
games this Saturday.
The Chiefs will take on Meralomas at Connaught Park,
while the Braves tangle with
Kats in a Bell-Irving Cup
match at Carnarvon. In other second division tests, the
Tomahawks tackle Rowing
Club Seconds and the Redskins play North Shore's second team at Confederation.
The University will enter 4
teams this year, the Chiefs,
who play in the first division,
and the Braves, Redskins ind
Tomahawks in the secebr jjpvt*
sion.
The Redskins, last atlhute
entries in the league, wlUfclay
the team which had a bys) fiat
week in the original schedule.
This schedule is only tentative
solar, but the 'Skins will paob-
ably play their games on'tha
campus.
The Chiefs will be relying
on a powerful scrum, led by
captain Bob Morford, to sup*
plement a backfield which
may suffer from the absence ol
Ross Wright, Skip McCarthey
and Don Spence.
Veterans Ted Hunt and Jack

any spectators, male or female.

Vikings.
The students are sure to take
over Bellingham but whether
the Birds can take over Battersby Field is another question.
MUCH THE SAME
The Vikings and the Birds
have much in common. Both
are still looking for their first
Evergreen Conference win,
and neither squad has scored
a point in league play.
Whitworth knocked off the
Vikings 13-0, and last weekend College of Puget Sound ran
all over the borderites in a 20-0
win.
Birds lost to Pacific Lutheran
19-0 and to Eastern Washington
by a 12-0 count. However, Whitworth and CPS are the two
top conference clubs.
But Western is not the Viking
squad of old that in 1952 swept
to 55-0 and 50-0 wins over the
Birds. Last season they barely
edged out a 7-0 score against
UBC.
Scouts report the Vikings
weaker this year and many regulars are rumored to be sidelined for this tilt with lime
burns suffered at CPS.
BACKS BIG
Coach Luppenbush's starting
backfield is big and experienced, but hasn't shown much
offensively.
Captain Keith Cabe quarterbacks the varied Viking box
and "I" formations. Power-running Don Lapp picks up consistent short yardage from his
fullback post. At the halves are
a couple of 190 pounders with
Bruce Randall and Jim Parker
at left and right half respectively.
All the backs can, and do,
pass, with a jump pass to Jim
Staha, a favorite Viking play.
It has been a poor running game
that has hampered Vikings to
date.
The Western line averaging
about 205 pounds has been
having trouble opening holes
for thir backs, but is bulwark
ed by two good tackles, Melbourne and Wilkinson.
Defensively, the Vikings are
good, as can be seen ln the low
scores in the games against
the two league powerhouses,
Whitworth and CPS.
For the Thunderbirds it will
be the old problem of finding
the   path   to   the   opposition's
end zone.
SPENCE BACK
With the expected return of
Don Spence, out for several
weeks with rib injuries, to
give more punch to the back-
field, Gnup could have the
answer to the problem.
Frank Gnup also wants more
speed In his backfield and fleet
but inexperienced Irving
Knight will see plenty of action.
Ian Stewart and Roger Kronquist will again share the
quarterbacking duties as will
Ron Stewart and Al Ezzy at
fullback.
Bruce Eagle and Gary Williams will start at right and
left half respectively.
The Thunderbird line will
be the same that started against
Eastern with Charley Kules at
center to relieve Ron Stewart
for backfield work.
From all aspects the contest
should be a battle of defenses
with little scoring. The only
certainty is that one squad will
break its losing streak.
