We're  Happy
We would be remiss in our journalistic duty if we did
not comment on Princess Margaret's decision. There wasn't a
newspaper m the world that didn't cover her romance even if
it was only a filler in the London Times. We thought of disguising one of our reporters as her lady-in-waiting and sending
her to London but our budget couldn't stand the strain.
To our way of thinking the happiest result of the whole
tiling is that Time Magazine guessed wrong. It's not often that
Time is caught with its predictions down.
In a way it's sad the whole thing is over. Millions of
housewives will have to return to radio's soapbox operas for
entertainment. But we are afraid the dilemmas of Helen Trent
and Aunt Jenny will now sound a little weak to them. Even
the $64,000 question has lost its lustre as a guessing game after
the question mark that Margaret posed for the world.
Group  Captain Peter  Townsend   can   now  return  to  his
horses*—ot least he knows where he stands with them.-
Princess Margaret will probably have to content herself
with the wealthy young son of a Scottish Earl—but that's the
breaks of the game.
The newspapers of the world will have to find another keyhole to peek through. But they'll succeed; they always do.
But getting back to Margaret's decision. We are happy
with it. We would have been just as happy if she had chosen
Townsend. As far as we are concerned she could have married
Ralph Sultan.
/ Like NFCUS Because....
By BRIAN SMIT H
I am replying to a somewhat amusing article by Rod
Smith in Tuesday's Ubyssey
that might have been entitled
"I don't like NFCUS because
I can't really «be bothered to
find out what it does!"
I am not writing here to
extol NFCUS to the skies for
its achievements tan year*
ago, or to eulogize the national
tits which the organization
supposedly provides.

More Buck
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
In 1950 I attended a public
meeting of the KGU (Combat
Group against Inhumanity)
held in Hamburg, Germany.
The leader of this organization, Berlin's Mr. Hildebrand,
was prevented by a group of
communist youth from addressing the audience in a more
determined manner than that
displayed by UBC student at
Tuesday's Tim Buck meeting.
Nevertheless, there appeared to
be a marked simularity in rudeness which is the more deplorable as one generally expects
students to show manners and
an appreciation of tolerance.
Besides intellect.
Communists, like any other
representation of an idea, will
not be defeated by laughter, by
ignorance nor by oranges from
a safe distance, but only by
sound argument and, if there is
a lack of suitable facts, by wit
and intelligent debate. These
means of expressing opposition
should be expected from UBC
students rather than from a
group of communist rowdies.
There are perspective lawyers on this campus, prospective
economists and political scientists.
There are political groups representing most of tbe political
parties, there is—if I am not
mistaken—also a debating club.
One should think that a few
members of these would be
able to debate with a communist without needing to appeal to the emotions of the
audience or resort to ridicule.
Moreover, one would wish the
audience would allow these potential serious opponents to
hear the speech in the first
place and itself not be carried
away by a group of rowdies.
Yours truly,
S. Pape,
Anthropology 3,

Proyer
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Are we, or are we not? Are
we really what we have represented ourselves to be? By
the nature of our proselytizing
activities, our appearand m
church on Sunday, and generally our tolerant disposition to
religious activities, we have
conveyed the impression to
foirigners that we nre a religious folk a«d primarily a
Christian folk. Unfortunately,
this is a false impression. Outsiders   arriving  in  AnfAo-Am-
erica learn this too soon, much
to their amazement and disappointing  disillusionment.
In suggesting that the AMS
meeting commence with prayer. Alade Akesode might or
might not have been facetious.
That is beside ihe point. The
important thing is thai our
convictions were strongly
wanting.
According to the census,
practically all Canadians indicate their belief in a particular religion. Undoubtedly,
many students at the AMS
meeting, including members of
the Students' Council, affirm
membership in religious denominations, even if nominally
only for the sake of social respectability. Membership usually Implies convictions and
convictions demand allegiance.
Therefore, it would have been
quite In order to commence the
meeting with a silent moment
of prayer. The godless would
have tolerated it. After all, tolerance is supposedly a basic
principle of democracy. Had
the chairman accepted the suggestion seriously, he would
have been given unanimous approval as many students would
have appreciated  the   oppwt-
one often finds in an American
Imigration official at the border, this "eub reporter" stated
that he just wanted the facts,
please! He just wanted to know
— one! two! three — what
NFCUS had accomplished at
the Conference, the total cost,
and if no such statistics sheet
was available, then he would
have not truck with anything
else. For truly, Mr. Rod Smith
is a man who must get the
facts. He left aa inconspicuously
as he had come. After days of
long deliberation, he produced
his witty little article in Tuesday's paper.
Let us examine his article—
charge, by charge. He chuckles
when he mentions that NFCUS
had petitioned the government
far scholarships "three years
ago." He omits to mention the
work el Jim Craig who spent
months last year compiling a
scholarship report based on
sampled opinions from political
and educational authorities in
the province. Of course, this
work mm done months ago, is
not a present "fact," end is
therefore but a grievance "occasional? aired."
He tells us that the NFUCS
scholarship plan is now an "abortive" one. Certainly it is a
rudimentary plan still in its
infancy, since it is doubtful If
more than a thousand students
have made use of it since its
initiation in 1952.
Smith includes some witty
allusions to "Canadian Campus/' "Student Discounts," and
other "daring deeds" of
NFCUS. I am in thorough
agreement with him on these
points. There are certain things,
however, that Mr. Smith has
failed to mention, or perhaps
being a "disinterested student."
never did want lo find out.
NFCUS set up both the Canadian University Press and the
unity to make a united petition
to God for guidance in the discussions and the decisions.
If our front is not to be a
false one, we should show some
evidence of the convictions we
are supposed to have. If we
have no convictions, let us be
honest and give truthful information to the census takers.
Yours  truly,
G. B. LANDIS, Arts 3.
Frustrated
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It is almost understandable
that students frustrated out of
their Hallowe'en fun by the
steady progress of the years,
and the advent of maturity
should indulge in a lit.tle "good
fun", at the expense of a member of an organization that has
become the universal scapegoat
of the West.
But it Is embarrassing and
more than a little disturbing
to find a professor, the head of
a department, and a man of
reputedly sober years openly
co-operating with the pranksters by lending the prestige
of his good opinion to their
irresponsibilities.
VICTOR J. HILL
Canadian Union of Debating
Association. It drew up rules
for the latter in 1947, and it
offers the winning team a trip
to compete in Europe each
year. NFCUS insituted its exchange scholarship plan some
years ago. This provides the
exchange scholar with free tuition fees at the Canadian University of his choice. We have
manged to send three or four
students on NFCUS exchanges
every year from U8C. NFCUS
also sponsors worthwhile art
and literary competitions. This
years art competition has several commendable UBC entries,
and the rewards lor this com*
petition include a WOO scholarship to the Banff School ol
Fine Arts for next summer.
This year the NFCUS Committee at UBC has a policy
roughly as follows. They will
maintain contact with the other
NFCUS executives across Can*
ada. They will continue to ad-
minster the various aforementioned competitions. A regular
series et noon-hour lectures on
currant Canadian topics is under way. D. It. Michener spoke
on Monday on the Rhodes
Scholarships. Future speakers
will include Hon. R. W. May-
hew, Hon. Robert Bonner, Senator Farris. and Roderick L.
Haig-Brown. The Committee is
also participating in plans for
a national blood drive and a
national university week—
these being the two UBC motions that were adopted at the
Edmonton Conference.
The local eosnsaitlee har*
hours no delusions over tha
grave weaknesses In the national organiiation of NFCUS.
They are aware that reform is
necessary, that the Conference
must be streamlined, and that
NFCUS must concern itself
with vital matters of student
government and net with the
machinery of running a comprehensive filing cabinet for
v o 1 u m i nous correspondence.
They realise that strong leadership must he introduced late
the organiiation if it is te survive another Conference.
At Dalhousie, Alberta, and
Carleton College, NFCUS apparently has strong support.
Yet, without the support of the
16,000 students at Toronto and
UBC—both of which are ready
to pull out—the federation
would conceivable fold.
I may be an incorrigible optimist, but I feel that we should
make one last concerted attempt to go along with NFCUS.
We have an investigating committee now who are looking
int" a policy of direct reform.
A ,'ht council majority were
in javour of giving NFCUS a
last chance. We really haven't
very much to lose by doing
this—except, as Rod Smith has
told us—6,300-odd packages of
cigarettes.
It is always easy to throw
up your hands in disgust when
an organisation is not going
just the way it should. It is
a little more commendable a
stand to make a strong effort
to improve such an organization. If UBC should fail in
taking the initiative to reform
NFCUS, then by all means we
should secede from the federation and concentrate on the all-
Amexrean PSPA. Here endeth
the lesson. DUE UBYSSEY "TV

For
Romeril
The fate of fourth-year Arts
student Paul Romerlll, who sits
stranded in a flea-rlden hotel
in Istanbul, Turkey, is still undecided.
Romerill was sent to Turkey
oh a World University Service
Exchange Scholarship. When
he arrived he found that he was
not expected and the student
in charge of the scholarship had
fled the country after a student
riot.
World University Service
Committee head Peter Krosby
said, "We have sent an urgent
appeal to the national office for
help and we are definitely going
to keep him there."
Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew has
written the president of the university in Istanbul explaining
Romeril's position, and guaranteeing his Qualifications for the
scholarship.
Everything possible for Romeril is also being done through
diplomatic channels and the
World University Service headquarters in Geneva.
BUDDHIST MONASTERY
Their summer began with a
week spent in a Buddhist Monastery in the south of Japan.
Two weeks of travelling
through Japan followed. The delegates visited handicraft and
large scale industries, had discussions with labor leaders, businessmen, and students, and
toured rural areas before ending up in Tokyo.
In Tokyo, they lived for ten
days in the gymnasium of a
primary school In one of the
poorest wards of Tokyo, where
they participated in a work
camp, resurfacing the playground of the school.
HOT SUMMER
"It was the hottest summer
Tokyo had had for 30 years,"
Bossons said, mopping his brow
reflectively.
After the manual labor, Copithorne and Bossons attended the
seminar itself. Delegates studied
current economic and social
problems of the nation as a
whole before considering problems of students.
Many of the delegates visited
the atom-bombed cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and had a
chance to study the attitudes of
citizens of those cities.

On School System
Arguing that Catholics are members o! the public and
should be allowed to allot their school taxes to separate schools,
Jim Craig 3rd Law, and Dick Riopel, 4th Arts, Thursday opposed Jerry Staley, 2nd Arts andErvin Redekop, 4th Arts
at Parliamentary Forum. *	
The argument was in reply to
Staley's statement that the public should not be expected to
foot the bill if Catholics or any
other group disagreeing with
the present system of public
education, wished to set up their
own schools.
"This is a democratic country," he said, "and the Catholic
church is a dictatorship. Why
should we support an undemocratic institution?
Riopel and Craig questioned
the rights of the state in a democracy. "It exists for the
people, not the people for the
state," Riopel said, "and parents
have a prior right on their children's education, above the state.
"When the state separates religion from education, Catholics
cannot feel that they are morally right to accept such a situation. They must be allowed to
establish their own system,
equivalent but not identical to
the government system. A man's
faith is his most important possession," he concluded.
Redekop came back with the
reply: "if you want ple-a-la-
mode, you pay for the ice-cream
and don't complain about it.
After all," he said, "he who pays
the piper calls the tune, and the
public at large would pay this
piper."
No decision was made on the
question, which John Spencer,
president of Parliamentary Forum, conducted.

Should the adenoid tariff

UBC students have sought
the answers to these vital issues since Gnup was a pup.
And every Friday, trank,
incisive, hard-hitting discussions of these — and other
burning issues that inflame
the minds of UBC students,
will be found in this space.
And in addition, slyly inserted in the most unexpected
places, we will include many

Kindly, shifty-eyed Mr.
Hillyer has long been concerned with the intellectual
welfare of UBC students. His
one ambition in life is to be
another Leon Koerner.
And so, he has magnanimously paid for this space,
in the hope that students will
read, reflect, and earnestly
discuss the burning issues
dealt with herein, and then
run like maddened lemmings
down to the Tie Bar (712

You have to sell a lot of

ROSEMARY KENT-BARBER
Ubyssey Homecoming Reporter
Thirty-three years ago our
University consisted of a group
of downtown shacks where
the Vancouver General Hospital now stands.
Out at Point Grey, the bare
girders of the half completed
Chemistry building symbolized the failure of a dream.
The dream had belonged to
John Jessop, the Provincial
Superintendent of Education
back in 1877, who had first
suggested the formation of a
University for British Columbia.
But it was to be 28 years
before the first UBC student
registered. Twenty years and
a long and tortuous route via
the Act of 1908 that endow-
ered the University lands and
determined the present constitution.
The enrollment that first
year of 1915 down in Fair-
view shacks was 379 students.
The Players Club and the
Musical Society were founded
the same year and the first
President of the Alma Mater
Society was a certain Sherwood Lett, now UBC's Chancellor.
By 1922, the enrollment had
increased to 1,176 students
and accommodation for classes
was at a premium. Overflow
lectures were held in tents,
in attics and in nearby homes.
Professors were threatening to resign as rats were seen
in the shack classrooms. The
AMS President-elect for that
year was a Mr. Ab. Richards
and it was he who declared
that "the government must be
petitioned to take the necessary action which will result
in the University moving to
Point Grey."
Mr. Richards, now principle
economist in the Department
of Agriculture in Ottawa,
formed a Publicity Campaign
Committee to direct the students in the collection of .signatures.
The students rang doorbells,
rode street cars and addressed
audiences from theatre stages
in their efforts lo gel signatures. By October 29 over
56.000 names had been collected.
One of the members of that
Publicity Committee was John
Allardyce, now a senior member of UBC's Biology Department.
Dr. Alinrdyce, a 1919 graduate, recalls that he really
represented the Alumni on
the Committee. "The Ubyssey
of that day took a very active
part in publishing the campaign." he recalls.
Another graduate of that
time was an Arthur Lord. Now
His Honour Judge Lord and a
member of the Senate, he re
calls thai despite the crowded
accommodation the students
of that time were a "Very
happy group." "Everyone
knew everybody else," he remembers.
The Secretary  of the Publicity    Campaign    Committee
Was Miss Marjorie Agnew,
now Girl's Principle at Van-
[ oomor's Technical High |
School and also a member of
the Senate.
Miss Agnew recalls that the
budget of the Committee amounted to the grand total of
fifty dollars. With this money
petition forms were printed
and it was Dean Angus, she
remembers, who drew up the
exact legal wording on these.
One day during the campaign she recalls that she gave
the wrong total of petitions
to a downtown newspaper. In
order to make the figures
match, one of the Committee
soap-boxed for hours in a pool
room until he finally succeeded in making the numbers
tally.
Then, on a Saturday of that
week, came the Qreai Trek.
It followed a downtown Parade in which not only the
students but many prominent
citisens, such as the Mayor of
New Westminster, participated.
After the Parade, the students walked from Tenth and

students who took part in the

Showing fine organization,
the students on that immortal
Saturday climbed onto the
bare girders of the Chem
building, shouting and waving
banners demanding action.
Then they formed up on the
ground to spell out "UBC" in
giant letters.
Meanwhile, Miss Agnew and
"Brick" McLeod, the Committee Treasurer (now doing
Forestry research for Washington State,) spent that
Thanksgiving weekend counting the final petition signature
results,
Miss Agnew remembers
"Brick" and herself racing
down to the CPR wharf and
yelling the final tally across
the water as the deputation to
Victoria set forth,
This deputation won permission to address the Provincial Parliament. Perhaps their
most dramatic piece of evidence was the six page boys
that were needed to carry the
monster rolls of petitions.

old Vancouver World carried
a bold headline "The University Will Be Built." Premier
John Oliver had announced •

been in vain. The Publicity

well. And today, thirty-three
years later we look back and
salute the students who took

UBC DIGEST OVER AIR
Radsoc Announces
Broadcast Series
University Radio Society
will release the first program
of the 1955-56 series "University Digest" November 5, URS
Program Director Bill Balian-
tinc disclosed yesterday.
The series will last 26
weeks and will be heard over
14 radio stations in B.C., the
Yukon and Alaska.
Directly in charge of the
program this year is Jack Mc-
Gavv, Arts II, former staff announcer at CHWK, Chilli-
wack.
FIVE IN SERIES
This is volume five of the
series which began with one
Vancouver Station five years
ago and gradually expanded
to 13 other stations over the
years.
Last year, production was
curtailed late in October, after URS studios were badly
damaged by water during the
plight to save Brock Hall from
total destruction by fire.
Digest is a program designed to give listeners a cross
section of University life
through interviews and features about UBC.
HIGHEST RATING
Last year, prior to the Brock
fire, Digest had, by survey,
the highest audio rating of any
program broadcast on the
west coast. Approximately 55
percent of all radios were
tuned in to Digest.
This year, with special efforts on the part of the pro
gram department, and a new
organizational setup devised
by McGaw, URS is confident
audio rating will increase by
at least five percent.
WEEK BY WEEK
First "Digest" opens with a
special address about the
series by President N. A. M.
McKenzie, and the remainder
deals witli special events
which have occured in the
epoch between October 1 to
Nov. 1. After the basic release however, Digest will
play up UBC on the "week by
week"  basis.
As yet, no decision has been
reached as to which Vancouver Station will carry the
series.
A variety of musical enjoyment was provided by Harry
Delamont's all-brass and bravery
varsity band and the recently
formed 15-piece Jazz Society
group.
Vocal entertainment was supplied by Ken Hamilton, a mala
quartet known as the "Four
Squares", and the UBC Glee
Club under the leadership of
TUTS musical director Harry
Pryce.
The football story was related
by Thunderbird Coach Frank
Gnup who introduced members
of the team as five shapely
cheerleaders demonstrated their
enthusiasm. Pep Club president
Don Jabour explained the newly designed manipulation of
coloured cards as a method of
cheering the team.

Muffler Is
Bi-Sexual
Garment
By LEN DAVIS
The elongated muffler, traditional garb of British schoolboys, has made its appearance
on campus, and seems to be here
to  slay.
Students no longer have to
throw tomatoes at public meetings to proclaim that they have a
college education, a light muffler ls better identification.
The history ot mufflers is of
course very well known; introduced by Julius Caesar into ancient Gaul, they were passed on
to the British after the French
saw the joke. The British never
saw the joke and they were
adopted as a national institution.
Medieval knights had them flying from their lances, and beneath the armourial bearings of
the great British families will
be found the "scarf rampant"
bearing the family motto.
Mufflers were introduced into
Canada by desperate cartoonists
looking for material. Their popularity is due to their tremendous adaptability and unique
situation as "bi-sexual" garments.
A survey of the campus showed mufflers being used for an
amazing variety of purposes. A
young man was seen entering
the Brock with his textbooks
wrapped in one end of his scarf,
while the other end dangled over
his white bucks and swayed in
the wind to keep them permanently clean.
On cold days groups of three
to four people can be seen outside the library sharing the same
scarf, and as was pointed out by
an enthusiastic salesman at the
College Shop, commenting on
the huge increase in sales expected after the Xmas exams
"A strong muffler is quicker
than gas poisoning, and neater." |
The scarf is widely accepted
as a suitable substitute for the
old school tie. Some Interesting
conversations about school colors
are on record.

card" at the Football Game on
the directions.
This is a plea the Pep Club is
making to all rooters who will
be sitting in sections "E" and
"F" of the students stands at the
Homecoming Game.
The Big Plan is to perform
card stunts which have become
so popular and famous at all the
large colleges in the States, like,
UCLA, Washington, and Notre
Dame.
CO-OPERATION
"But unless we get the cooperation of the people in the
stands," stresses Pep Club representative Gary Anderson,
"our chances of putting on an
impressive show will just about
vanish,"
Card stunts consist of every
person in the rooting section
holding up different coloured
cards in a pre-determined sequence and arrangement so that
designs so-formed spell out
words of greeting and describe
various animations.
The designs and co-ordination
of tho stunts are all worked out
beforehand, and for the undertaking to be a success, all the
rooters in the stands has to do
is to follow his Instruction card
and hold up the right coloured
card at the right time.
For Saturday's game, the Pep
Club will place on each seat in
the student section the coloured
cards and instruction sheets. All
that is required of the fans is
that when the time comes to
perform the stunts, they sit directly behind the person in front
of them and follow the directions of the co-ordinator on the
field who will tell them when
to hold up their cards.
NOT HARD
"It's not really hard to do,"
says Andersoa, "but if one person holds up the wrong coloured
card at the wrong time, the
whole effect can be ruined.
Therefore, we hope that everyone will co-operate so we can
give the Grads a good show."
Homecoming Floats
Decorated Today
Plans for the biggest and best Homecoming Parade ever
crystallized today with the announcement that both the Field-
house and the Armoury will be open from four p.m. onwards
for organizations to decorate their floats.
Among the floats expected are
ones from every faculty, from
Fort and Acadia camps, from
sororities and fraternities, from
the Pep Club, the Publications
Board, the embryo Arts and
Science Undergraduate Society
and  Radsoc.
LOST LAOOON
i
Parade floats will assemble
at Lost Lagoon at 9:30 a.m. and
once arranged in order, will proceed up Georgia to Burrard,
along Burrard and left to Hastings and up Granville to Georgia again.
Following City Councils requests all floats must be mobile
and will drive on the right hand
side of the street. City Police
are also providing a motorcycle
escort.
Along with the floats seven
beautiful Faculty Queens will
be riding in convertibles. Two
carloads of Council members are
also expected.
Parade judges are Alderman
Mrs. Anna Sprott, City Council
member, Jack Webster of
CJOR's "City Mike" fame and
Les Cummings of the Vancouver
Daily Province.

Varsity risks its second place standing in the Mainland
Soccer League First Division when they play third place Collingwood Athletics at Killarney Park on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Still  undefeated  this season,
Birds will be out to run their
streak to six games. The Collies
have not had much success with
Varsity in the last few years. It
seems they feel if they can't
beat the Birds then Join them,
as they boast two ex-UBC start
in Dick Matthews and Bud Dob-
eon.

were stopped 2-1 by league-
leading Mt. Pleasant. Both
Squads are hitting top form and

a close game.

Chiefs, who have yet to reach
the calibre of play expected, of
them, will welcome this exhibition tilt as an opportunity to
smooth out some of the kinks.
Those players moved up from
the Braves last week, and who
showed well against Rowing
Club, will stay with the team.
All players will make the trip,
except possibly Derik Vallis.
In the feature game of the
Bell-Irving Cup series, the highflying Braves will tangle with
Barbarians on the Aggie Field
at 1 a.m. This will be the first
real test for the Braves, both
teams being undefeated in league
play. Barbarians smothered the
Redskins last week 23-0, while
Braves worked over Ex-Tech
41-3.
TOMMIES AT HOME
Also on the campus, the Tomahawks will be after North Shore
scalps at Gymnasium Field,
game time, 1:30. The Tommies
are fresh from their first victory
of the season, a 6-3 triumph over
Kats Seconds last Saturday.
The bottom team on the Varsity Totem pole, the Redskins,
will be trying for their second
win of the season against Ex-
Tech Seconds at Douglas Park.
Exx-Tech, who was well-softened
up by the Braves a week ago,
should prove easier to handle
than the Barbarian XV who previously beat the 'Skins 28-0.

Activities
Scheduled
Officials in charge of this

at the Homecoming game have
arranged for things to run more
smoothly—by scheduling much
of the ceremony at the beginning of,the game.
It was felt that the time consumed by the mid-game break
resulted in the loss of spirit and
enthusiasm by the fans.
, This year's intermission parade will include the Queen candidates, majorettes, COTC pipe
band and a glamorous representative of the Quarterback
Club. The five best floats in the
Homecoming parade will also
appear.
Don Jabour and his Pep Club
plan to organize fans who brave
the elements and provide a real

Frank Gnup's Thunderbirds
get their final and best chance
to set a new UBC record ot two
wine in a single season ef Evergreen Conference play this Saturday at 2 pun. when they host
Central Washington Wildcats
before a UBC Homecoming
throng.
For once, Birds will enter the
game as favorites as they meet
the winle8s Wildcats who share
the Evergreen Conference cellar with Western Washington.
Both Central Washington and
UBC have, lost four games but
the Birds also hold a win over
Western, good enough for fifth
place In the seven team loop.
It was the Wildcats who last
year ruined the UBC Homecom
ing by overcoming an 18-0
Thunderbird half-time lead for
a 25-18 win.
Coach Gnup has made three
changes in his starting line-up
in an attempt to get that second
win. Roger Kronquist, playing
his last game for the Birds, will
replace Ian Stewart at quarterback.
NESTMAN FOB EZZY
At fullback, Jerry Nestman,
also in his last UBC game, replaces Al Ezzy, who suffered
a slight concussion last weekend
against CPS and will probably
not strip.
The only change in the Thunderbird line is at left end where
Bruce Kelsey takes over for

Nine Thunderbirds Play
Final Game at UBC
By DWAYNE ERICKSON
Nine Thunderbird football
players will wear the blue and
gold for the last time in Evergreen Conference competition
this Saturday in the Homecoming tilt against Central Washington.
Ralph "Buz" Hudson has been
W Bird star at end for the past
two seasons. He is a hard tackier
and Gnup can count on him to
go either way.
LIONS SCOUT
Jerry O'Flanagan, playing his
| second year with the Birds, looks
like he's not finished with football yet. There have been a few
rumors that the Lions have
taken a liking to a certain 200
lb. UBC guard.
Bud McFarlane and Doug Duncan are the other linemen who
are playing their last game.
Roger Kronquist stars for the
| Birds at quarterback and defense
jeing a good passer and a superior signal caller.
Al  Ezzy  has   been   a   tough
driving fullback   but   drove   a
little too hard  in last  weeks'
game, receiving a concussion.
SPENCE TO RUGGER
Don Spence, the mighty-mite
of the Birds also plays his last
|.«ame of football before trecking
over to the rugger field.
Jerry Nestman, in' third year
| medicine, will be devoting all his
time to studying next season.
Irving Knight,  whose  speed
has been an asset in soccer, rug-
| by, track as well es football will
also be missed next year.
The university owes each and
j every one of them & thank you
np matter how good or bad their
efforts were. The thing that
counts is that they did make an
effort.
On Saturday the student body
should be on hand to voice their
personal thanks.
rib injury. Rey Jokanewich will
strip and probably see limited
action in apite of his leg injury.
Otherwise, UBC is at full
strength and as Gnup puts it,
"Up for the game."
Coach Abe Poffenroth's Wildcats are long on stars but short
on depth. Also, Central Washington is young and inexperienced . with freshmen holding
down several key spots.
In the line, the right side is
very strong with both tackle
Don Lyall and guard George
Argelan receiving all-conference
rating.
HARRIMAN BACK
Offensively, quarterback Bill
Harriman, the 1954 Evergreen
Conference all star in that position, leads the way. Harriman,
who personally beat UBC last
season is a fair passer, good faker and runner, and can also
block.
At left half for the Wildcats
is Don Pierce, a trackman that
also gained all conference football recognition in 1954.
The fans would not appreciate rain, but the Birds would
gain greatly as it could bog
down Central's strong passing
attack.

You can have time on your handa
with a ruggad Royal Portablal
Want to increase your leisure hours? Then get yourself
a Royal Portable. In a few short weeks you'll be able
to type twice as fast as you can write.
Come exam time, you'll bless the day you bought
a Royal and put an end to squinting over hastily-
scribbled notes. Watch your spelling improve too!
Believe it or not, when you see a word neatly typed
it's easier to tell if it'a spelled right.
Think of the amount of time you'll save over the
years with a rugged Royal portable. It's a lifetime
investment you know. No doubt it will be one of
your handsomest heirlooms.
See the Royal Portable at Dealers and Department
Stores. Budget terms arranged.
