Visitors' Day
Plans Started
year as this to show the public
what the University of British
Columbia can do, AMS President
Allan Ainsworth said Tuesday in
announcing tentative plans for
Visitors' Day March 2.
UBC was last thrown open to
the public seven years ago, when
thousands toured the campus.
Ainsworth said that the UBC
Public Relations Committee, in
endorsing the Visitors' Day proposal, had felt the task could be
taken on by the AMS with some
financial assistance from the
university. t
Referring to the Memorial
Gymnasium campaign, Ainsworth
said publicity for UBC would be
emphasized in planning Visitors'
"We'll Invite the public to come
and see what we've done to provide
for 7,000 students," he said. He
added that he had found outsiders
to be eager to learn how the huge
student body was being accommodated.
During the day there would be
emphasis also on athletic activities.
Basketball contests were tentatively planned for afternoon or
Visitors will be taken by bus
directly to the Armoury, from
which student guides will show
them around the campus, Ainsworth announced.
He added that it may be found
possible to open tiie university
to the public for two days. To do
this, however, a new date would
to be set beacuse of the Vancouver
Symphony concert on March 1.

Four Active TB Cases
Found Here Recently
FOUR CASES of active tuberculosis have been discovered
among ex-service students on the
campus, Dr. J. S. Kitching, director of the university Health Service disclosed this week.
Dr. Kitching urged all students,
including veterans, to avail themselves of the services of the Mobile
X-ray Unit scheduled to begin
operations here February 11.
All students who have not already made appointments for
chest X-ray should do so Immedi
ately. Applications should be
made to the university Health
Service, located in Hut 2. west of
the Auditorium.
Most ex-service studencs do not
feci that the additional service is
necessary in view of the thorough
examination they receive on discharge,  Dr. Kitching pointed out
The recent discovery of four
infected persons in thus group
should indicate to others the very
real need for keeping a close check
in the condition of one's chest, he
concl ided.

Campaign Opens
THREE THOUSAND Vancouver business men are being interviewed this week and
next for contributions to the War Memorial Gymnasium fund by teams of 150 students.
Student canvassers were briefed on their duties Tuesday noon by Jack Cunningham
and Ole Bakken. Teams were formed of five sorority girls and five servicemen. Each
student will mail brochures to each one of twenty businessmen, whom they will interview
After student canvassers have
completed their program of twenty
interviews, additional lists will be
drawn up, and 2,000 more businessmen will be contacted until
the end of March.
The War Memorial Gymnasium
Committee emphasizes the fact
that all contributions to the fund
will be deductible from income
tax. Checks, and even pledges are
tc be accepted from donors.
Student speakers from the uni-
sity have started a lecture program to talk before Lower Mainland high schools and downtown
service organizations. First speaker was Sandy Robertson, who addressed a meeting of special sports
representatives Monday evening in
Brock Hall.
Ralph "Hunk" Henderson addressed the Lions Club Tuesday
noon and Harry Franklin, Thunderbird star, spoke to the Rotary-
Club Tuesday afternoon.
Tommy Fisher will outline the
gymnasium cirive to Duke of Connaught High School taday.
The Jokers' Carnival tentatively
planned for February 27, will
take place Saturday March 2, tying in with "Visitors' Day" held
for the benefit of people of the
Lower Mainland who wish to see
the university. A football game
and an evening basketball game
are tentatively scheduled.
"Student contributions are already beginning to trickle into the
fund," stated Jack Cunningham
Wednesday noon. The War Memorial Gymnasium Fund office is
situated in the old employment
bureau next to the Alma Mater
Society office in Brock Hall.
An anonymous downtown donor
has already sent a fifty dollar
check to the fund, before the
student interviews with downtown
businessmen have begun.
A raffle dreamed up by the
Jokers Club will take place in th*
eufeteria Friday noon, and slotted
cardboard donation sheets in
which quarters can be deposited,
will be circulated around classes.
A bulletin received in the Ubyssey office from the Western Ontario Gazette, newspaper of tin
i.tudents of Western University,
outlines their campaign for a
$500,000 physical education building and  gymnasium.
A professional organizer has been
employed for campaign purposes.
In London Itself 200 concerns will
l>t asked to contribute toward the
Western undergraduates last
year sold gymnasium stickers for
25 cents each, and this year will
sponsor a follies show, proceeds
of which will pour into the fund.
Members of Western alumni have
already contributed personal donations amounting to $10,000.
Further endorsement of the gymnasium campaign here has been
voiced by all provincial recreation
groups. The dinner banquet in
Brock Hall sponsored by the
Men's Athletic Association, endorsed the project unanimously.

WITH A GRAND TOTAL majority of 583 votes, Ted Kirk-
patrick was elected Wednesday to the post of AMS president
for 1946-47 in a record poll of preferential voting on the
Leading on first and second counts in the special balloting
system, Kirkpatrick won 1556 first-ch°ice votes and 447
second-choice votes, giving him a grand total of 2003 out of
3553 votes cast.
Temporary accommodation for
veterans In the old Hotel Vancouver will be provided for:
1. Married couples without
2. M a r r 1 e d couples with
3. Single men and women.
Any student veterans Interested should notify the Canadian Legion Housing Committee
in Hut 33 immediately.
Legion Needs
Place To Meet
UBC BRANCH of the Canadian
Legion has UOO memebri but no
place for them to get together.
President Tony Greer said Wednesday the branch had tried to
book the Auditorium for its general monthly) meeting and for two
forum discussions it has planned.
TOiere were no vacancies until
Only the auditorium, he said,
approached the accommodation
needed for the large veterans' organization.
The United Nations' Organization's possibility of becoming a
world government was decided on
by the branch Monday night as
the first topic for its forum discussion.
Greer said the aim in instituting
the forum discussions, which will
be open to all students, was to
give students an opportunity to
discuss current topics without
taking up time at Legion business
"We'll have members of the faculty speak briefly on the subject,
then have the audience ask questions. The idea is to give everyone a chance to shoot off his
If use of the auditorium can be
obtained for an additional meeting,
there will also be a discussion of
the housing question.
Date of the first forum will be
advertised a week in advance,
Greer said.
DECISION on existence of
political clubs on the campus
may be given to the AMS this
week, President N. A. M. MacKenzie said late Wednesday.
Applications of LPP and Progressive-Conservative members
to the Students' Council to
organize such clubs here were
passed on recently to the board
of governors.
The board at its last meeting
postponed making a decision on
the question.
URS Radioline
Complete Soon
UNIVERSITY Radio Society's
chief program engineer Loyd Bulmur announced Wednesday that
installation of a permanent radio
line for downtown broadcasting
will be completed shortly,
Majority   of   URS   productions
over  local  stations  will   originate
from the campus after line installation Mulmur said.
Bulmur also announced extension
of the campus loudspeaker network
to the stadium. v
Third    program    in    University
Radio Society's half hour weekly
dramatic   series   is   scheduled   for
8:30 tonight on CKMO.
This week's Campus Theatre
production will feature a light
comedy written and directed by
Ernie Perrault, UBC student.
Perrault stated that tonight's cast
will include Pat Ottewell, Elaine
Leiterman, Jack Cowan, Des. McKillop, Max Pawr, Frank Brown
and Ray Perrault.
His nearest rival, ex-serviceman
Tony Scott, polled a first-choice
count of 973, and a second-choice
count of 447 for a grand total of
1420.   Art Monahan, third candidate in the field, was eliminated
from the election in the first count,
where he polled a total of 894.
"It was the largest vote in recent
years on the campus," election
committee chairman Nancy Pitman
told The Ubyssey. "Over 50 per
cent of students cast a ballot."
Most voters appeared at polling
stations in the Quad during the
first two hours, and numbers slacked off noticeably after 1:30 classes
began. Students formed queues to
the voting tables during beraks
between classes. Few left the
queues to get to lectures when the
bell rang.
"Packing of ballot-boxes was Impossible under the preferential
voting system In operation Wednesday," Miss Pitman said. "This
ycar, a number—one, two, or three
—had to be recorded for each candidate on the ballot, or it was
counted spoiled."
Election committee members expressed the opinion that campaigning in the election was on "an
extremely fair basis." No unfair
tactics have been reported to the
committee, Miss Pitman reported.
"I promise only to continue the
good work being done by this
year's Students' Council," Kirk-
Patrick declared. "The present
president has done excellent
work." He would concentrate on
completion of the Memorial Gymnasium.
A fourth-year Mechanical Engineering student, he is junior member of the Students' Council this
year, and was president of his class
in second and third year. He is
AMS liaison officer to the Alumni
Association and a member of Memorial Gymnasium Committee.
While at Lord Byng High School
he took part in debates and was
active in YMCA work. He is a
Beta Theta Pi and a member of
the honorary Sigma Tau Chi fraternity.
Expressing gratification at the
record vote, AMS president Allan
Ainsworth said he hoped students
would continue to turn out for
the election of the remaining posts
on the ne wstudent council.
"Next year's councU will require
the support of every student,"
Ainsworth added. "It is the duty
of each one to exercise his franchise."
The present incumbent will hand
over the gavel to president-elect
Kirkpatrick at the annual General
Meeting of the AMS at the end of
March. New council members will
take up their posts at the joint
meeting of old and new executives
v hich follows the general meeting
of students.
Voting was hampered early in
tUo day when the ballots ordered
for the election failed to appear
in the campus.
AMS emergency measures provided a number of mimeographed
ballots for immediate use, and n
call was sent to the printers for
the  regulation forms,
Printed ballots arrived in the
afternoon, und were supplemented
before 2:30 by another delivery.
Students   who   found   the   polls
not open at 10 a.m. were relieved
of their anxiety by 11:15 when the
(Continued on Page 3)

Students must watch carefully to see that
their rules are not outdistanced and outdated
by the increase in student population. An
example of rules tailor-made for a small
compact student body, but definitely small
time and size for a large socially disintegrated
institution, are the existing election regulations.
Students have been told monotonously
and over and over again how important it
is that they either run for student council
office if they have the capability, or else
vote for people who would do a good job
for them. The whole campus is in agreement
on these points.
But unfortunately, campaign rules are so
restrictive that after the four days allowed
presidential candidates, the only facts the
majority of students know about them are
their names.
Unless numerology becomes the vogue
again and students select their officers by
working out mathematical calculations based
on the number of syllables in each candidate's name, or enough people are lucky
enough to get near the cafeteria notice board
to discover from regulation-size pictures
posted there, which of the candidates is the
better looking, only the personal friends of
the candidates should feel justified in casting
presidential ballots.
It is too late now to do anything about
revising the election rules for the election
of president and treasurer of the AMS next
year.   But the new council should take on
the modernizing of election rules as their
first task before the semi-annual Alma Mater
Society meeting in March.
Three of the out-dated regulations are
these: "Candidates for president and treasurer may post 2 signs 21" by 28" and 3
signs 21" by 14"," "Names of candidates will
be read over the public address system at
noon on the day following nomination day
and on the day preceeding election day. No
other announcement of candidates names
over the public address system will be
approved," and "Campaigning after each
office commences at 8:30 a.m. Thursday the
day after nominations for that office close,
and continues until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, the
day before election day."
Treasural and presidential nominees may
well be allowed a week or ten days for
campaign purposes. They may well be
allowed more posters and photographs,
which are in themselves a highly unsatisfactory campaign method. The ten minute
pre-election speaking time in an auditorium
which holds less than one-third of the voting
population, should be supplemented by radio
The days are gone when every student on
the campus knows every other student on
the campus. And since importance of
elections is so great, campaign regulations
for potential treasurers and presidents of the
Alma Mater Society should be relaxed so
all 7,000 students, instead of a small group
located in a tight centralized area, will know
what is going on all of the time.
LETTERS To The Editor
The   WaSSail   Bowl by Norm Klenman
WHETHER OR NOT State Socialism is
the answer to western civilization's economic
and social problems, we have not the foresight to say. And whether or not individual
rights as we understand them today could
exist where central planning replaces free
enterprise is a meaty problem for the
Parliamentary Forum to digest.
But whether we like or dislike it, whether
it is a good thing or a bad thing, State
Socialism is coming.
We are neither political experts nor
seers, in this corner, but we have 20-20
vision and hope we can read the big red
letters on the wall. Some form or another
of moderate leftist government has appeared
in Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain.
Russia, a more extreme example, is also the
most influential. She has aided the establishment of many apparently-socialist states
in Europe. Right here in Canada, we have
a Province trying the experiment.
The movement is gathering momentum;
and if the various left-wing parties carrying
it along ever unite their forces, we'll see the
much-discussed Millenium.
With the great force of socialist thinking
in mind, then, we should like to turn the
podium over to our good friend Ron Smith
of New Zealand. The "Senator," as we used
to call him, is a most sincere and aggressive
young man, a member of the Young Communist League of N.Z.
He trained in Canada with the RNZAF,
becoming interested in our politics. In
England he assisted the Labour party in last
year's elections. Now 23, discharged, and a
civil servant back home in Wellington, the
Senator represents a growing class of leftist
thinkers. These excerpts are well worth a
passing thought.
May 5,1945, London, Eng.
"THE WAR IN EUROPE sweeps to a
climax. Yesterday all north Germany and
Holland surrendered. The Red Flag flies
over the Reichstag! Mussolini met his end
at the hands of the Italian people whom he
starved, murdered, overworked, enslaved
for 23 years ....
". . . . Last Tuesday I was in London. It
was stated Churchill would make a statement and everyone expected the war's end.
So I went to the House and asked for Mr.
Driberg. (Tom Driberg, leftist MP). While
waiting for him in the lobby up comes an
impertinent busy-body.
"What are you waiting for?" she asks.
"To visit the visitors' gallery."
"What MP?"
"Mr. Tom Driberg."
"Him?!?!"   Incredulity, scorn, disgust in
her voice.   "I wouldn't be seen dead with
"It wasn't until she had signed to let me in
the gallery that I found it was — yes, none
other than Lady Astor, Britain's famous
(notorious?) first woman MP ... I wouldn't
have been seen dead with her if I'd
known . . . ."
(This letter was written at the time of the
San Francisco Conference, and Ron includes
a few sharp comments.)
"SAN FRANCISCO! .... there once
again Russia leads the world for consistency,
democracy, internationalism, anti-fascism, as
the shameful Argentine and Polish record
shows. The despicable Hearst Press floods
the country as usual with abuse, lies, innu-
endos, sabotage, and red herrings. Its
counterpart in this country (England), the
'Express,' does similar work. Agitates for
the abolition of all controls, back to laissez-
faire capitalist jungle, I suppose such as not
even the capitalists themselves want."
June 6,1945, London, Eng.
"OVER HERE the most vital election for
decades is in full swing .... every poster
(of the Conservative Party) screams 'A vote
for X is a vote for Churchill.' I've seen no
other argument used by the tories on posters.
The name Conservative so stinks they are
trying not to use it and all candidates call
themselves 'National' ....
"They (the Conservatives) still can only
call on Lords and Dukes, huge land owners,
monopolists, financiers, landlords, bankers.
Their list of candidates looks like a list of
directors of monopolies and cartels , . . ."
(Ron's latest arrived this week, and he
discusses our course here).
January 17,1946, Wellington, N.Z.
". . . . I'm always a bit distrustful about
some of these bourgeois professors and their
orthodox outlook on economics and politics.
In order for you to really keep an open mind
and to understand that the only relations of
production are not capitalist employer-employee relations, I suggest you join the LPP
and take their study courses. With such a
large University they may have a separate
club in UBC (as in Wellington) . . . ."
We have taken • a liberty with Ron's
friendship because we wished to present his
candid views. Those comments above are
representative of our leftist friends. We
have heard them over and over again. Maybe the whole issue of capitalism vs socialism
is as simple to solve as they say, i.e. go left,
old world, go left. Maybe it isn't. But
when a few more people pick up Ron's views
and wave them about, it will be a short step
to the Millenium.

Dear Madam:
To Mr. R. G. Herbert, for hte
(.lashing defeno; of political parties
in Thursday's Ubyssey. Touche
Sir. Well done, as far as you go,
but you've missed the boat on the
main issue,
I have no objection to this university being the "cradle of democracy," as you so pointedly
suggest is necessary. I do object,
however, to groups of clubs being
organized under the AMS constitution with the soul purpose, of
spreading their political gospels on
this campus.
If you had taken the trouble to
separate the extraneous journalese
from the arguments of the article,
you might have found that:
(1) I believe political thought,
discussion, and study has its place
on the  campus, but
(2) That place is not in separate
clubs under the AMS but rather
through the medium of speeches
by representatives of outside political groups, and in classrooms,
(3) I realize that there is much
political activity on this campus,
and you must agree with me that
many of its manifestations ar*
most distasteful. Nevertheless, I
have no desire to eliminate it, but
only wish to see it directed, by
intelligent handling, along intellectual rather than rabble-rousing
You quote Mr. Hal Daykin's excellent argument of the success ot
party branches at Oxford and
Cambridge. Yet it is possible that
"clear thinking" has obscured
your vision so far that you have
seen nothing of the adverse political activity in such universities as
Louisiana State during Huey Long's
term of office? Or the universities
of the South American countries,
which are more Interested in parading their objection to the government than turning out students
who will some day combat it?
Come come, Mr. Herbert. Leas

Dear Madam:
In recent issues the question of
political clubs has been dealt with

abused by either permitting or not
permitting their existence on the
Since arriving on the campus I

ALTHOUGH British Columbia
prides itself on having the highest
standard of living in Canada, and
maintains that its laws are the
most advanced on the continent,
cne can hardly call the liquor laws
of BC modern or even intelligent.
Outmoded is an excellent description of the long line-ups we
see outside the liquor stores and
beer parlors. How childish the
laws are when drinking in public
places is prohibited and yet, in
these same places there are bottles
under every table, as well as some
of the patrons.
Placing enforced limitations on
liquor consumption does not help
solve the problem: it only tends '
to Increase lt. The Prohibition era
in the United States proved this
People will always drink. The
liquor laws of BC, such as they
are now, tend to make people
think that they are getting away
with something when an evening
passes without the bottles under
the table being found, or when
they can procure an extra supply
by some subversive mehod.
What good are the present liquor
laws when they cannot be enforced? If they were modified to
allow consumption in public places,
drunk and disorderly conduct
could be severely and fairly dealt
with in court.
When a party goes to a nightclub the guests take their <jwn
liquor and they seem to feel that
they must imbibe it all before they
leave the premises. If, however,
they could buy drinks with a meal,
not as much liquor would be consumed. In places which sell liquor
across the table, the emphasis is
laid on food, music, entertainment
and surroundings—and drinking is
not heavy.
Our opinion of the province of
Quebec is usually extremely
critical, but the liquor laws of that
province are the most advanced
and intelligent in the Dominion.
During the time that I lived in
Quebec, the only drunks I ever
saw were those from other provinces who were making the most
of their opportunities.
Critical readers will immediately
conclude that I am a habitual
drunkard. To put their minds at
rest, I should say that the number
of drinks that I have consumed in
my lifetime could be numbered on
one hand. However, I am firmly
convinced that the modification of
the British Columbia liquor laws
would go a long way to solve the
problem of intoxication in this
province. The situation cannot be
worse than it is now. Let's take
the lead out of our heels and do
something about it.

THE WORIJD has just survived the worst holocaust that man has
ever known. Millions of men went to war to fight against the tyrannical
foe and every dastardly thing that he stood for. Thousands of our boys
died for the ideals that they believed in, so that the world would once
again be a decent place to live. A world where all men are created equal,
a world where the Oolden Rule is the supreme Law. If the fundamental
teaching of all great religions, "Love they neighbour as thyself were
faithfully followed by all peoples and by all nations, then we would
attain the greatest blessing of all — a brotherhood of nations.
The greatest  deterrent to that      ——————————

Throughout Canada we have a
small group of people who are
spreading the poisons of group
hatred. This spreading af hatred
propaganda started by the Nazis
and fanned by native professional
agitators is responsible for trying
to disorganize the Canadian peoples. We, in the west are fortupate

Racial prejudice is aa old as
the world. It is nourished by
bigotry, falsehoods, and appeals to
the lower Instincts of the herd.
Racial prejudice is not founded on
a rational basis but is the aftermath of superstition, ignorance
and frustration. Essentially it is
the mingling of emotional attitudes, of old superstitions, fear
complexes, egotism and snobbery.
This hodgepodge in the mind fosters and breeds a pattern of thinking that resists all reason and

Poems Contest
Closes March I
JUDGES FOR the Canadian
Poetry Contest being held by the
Poetry Craft Group of the Ottawa
Branch, Canadian Authors Association, have now been announced.
They will be:
Miss Anne Marriatt, brilliant
young Canadian poet, whose collection of poetry "SANDSTONE
and Other Poems" was published
last year by Ryerson Press.
Wilfred Eggleston, parliamentary journalist, author and radio
Poems submitted should not exceed 48 lines.
Only original work, hitherto unpublished is eligible.
A fee of 25 cents must accompany each entry. Contestants may
enter several poems if they wish
All contestants submitting two
or more entries will receive a copy
of the Chap-Book containing the
poems accepted for publication.
Poems submitted should be
signed by a pen name, with the
contestant's real name and address enclosed in a sealed envelope.
Closing date of the contest is
March 1. Entries should be addressed to Mrs. Lillian I. Found,
270 Harmer Avenue, Ottawa.

mimeographed forms first appeared.
Committee members were
anxious that it be understood the
lack of ballots was a fault of the
printing plant, and not caused by
lack of preparedness for the balloting.
Committee chairman Nancy
Pitman spoke of the poll as a
"record crowd" in offering her
thanks   to   students   serving   at
spect our fellow Canadians. In
the front line there was no such
thing as Catholic, Protestant or
Jw. They were all Canadians. If
our boys can face the foe and
death, linked together as brothers,
certainly we can share the peace
as brothers.
We must protect the rights of
our fellow citizens, whether Catholic, Protestant or Jew;
each person must be allowed the
freedom of worship. By respecting the different religious and
ethnical groups within our borders
we can reap the rewards of a
great nationhood.
Each group must be encouraged
to take pride in the culture of its
forefathers. Who can say that
Scots are worse Canadians for
paying homage to that immortal
poet, Robert Burns, or the English
for celebrating the feast of St.
George, or the Irishman for his
pride in Ireland, or the Hebrew
for his pride in Palestine, or the
Welshman for his pride in Wales?
Canadians all ,and each adding to
the greatness of Canada.
Canada's greatness may be attributed to the many racial groups
within her borders, each with
something to contribute, each giving the best of their respective
cultures. A well known simile Is
an orchestra. If the orchestra were
to be composed of but one group
of similar instruments, the result
would be dull and stagnant, but
when there are many different
instruments, each contributing
something original we have a
symphony of music. And so it is
with our great country, each different group adding to our Canadian culture and greatness.
There is no room in Canada for
racial prejudice.

UBC splashers will make another debut at the annual
BC Swimming Championships. When the championships
get under way at the Crystal Pool on February 23, there will
be another Thunderbird team born, another Thunderbird
team which will seek its share of the sports laurels.
With such stalwarts as Archie Byers, Don Deans, Pete
Townsend and Don Morrison sparking the men's team and
Kay Worsfold, Irene Berto and Gwen Avery for the women,
good results are to be expected.
Tickets for this affair may be obtained from the Swimming Club Executive. Victoria "Y" along with the local
VASC will offer the competition. Those who enjoy good
swimming competition are urged to get their tickets early.
Practices and tryouts for the teams have begun. Those
who placed in the Gala Saturday night or the Girl's Splash
party and do not belong to the Swimming Club should get
in touch with the Gym office or a member of the Swimming
Club Executive. This will help to arrange practice times and
facilitate the choosing of the team.
The Swimming Club is reminded that the staff photographer
will be at the pool next Wednesday afternoon to take the

This Saturday afternoon, however, Varsity will be out to show
soccer fans that the Qoldies mean

in the parade of teams bringing
home cups to the Alma Mater.
Coach Miller McGill outlined the
aims of the soccer men on the
campus at last night's meeting and
he is confident that with the addition of several veterans to the
lineup, the Varsity eleven will
take the Imperial Cup and perhaps also th mainland and provincial titles.
Varsity's main weakness so far
has been lack of Arc-power in the
forward line, and on Saturday the
line will be bolstered by the addition of two halfbacks.
Armand Temoin will move up
from half to inside in place of
Ivan Carr who is sick, and Jack

Coed Athletes
Prep For Track
VARSITY'S ambitious coeds
have taken over track as their
latest athletic activity this week,
and they're warming up for both
the indoor and the outdoor varieties of the sport. Serious training has already started for the
indoor meet on March 8.
But don't let this confuse you.
The lassies are in training for the
fun of it, as a glance at the list of
events will prove.
Among the more conventional
contests are the rope jump, basketball timing, and the circle jump.
Then there's the circle relay, Jump-
the-stick, and the left-hand relay.
But the rest of the evening will
be devoted to "strictly for fun"
stunts. Basketball shooting, standing broad jump, dart throwing,
chair twist, and the rope climb are
but a few of these events.
Others include bowling, table
soccer, and — of all things — hog
calling. High jumping will also
come under the list of "stunts"
since none of the girls have had
enough training for serious competition.
Girls now have the opportunity
to work out in the gym three times
a week under the supervision of
their intramural team managers.
Times that the gym will be open
will be announced later.
Girls interested in the indoor
meet who have not yet been notified by their managers, are urged
to contact them at once. Managers
names may be obtained at the
Gym office.

CPSJlSquad Tonight
UBC's HIGH-FLYING Thunderbird basketeers will be
shooting for sole possession of top spot in the Pacific Northwest Inter-Collegiate Conference when they motor south to
Tacoma to tackle the College of Puget Sound quintet.
The Loggers are currently tied with the 'Birds atop the
standings, and the winner will move to the fore in the
basketball race.
Following the conference tilt,
the thundering Thunderbirds return to the UBC campus for a
two-game series against the University of Portland Pilots, slated
for  Friday  and  Saturday  nights.
Fresh from a double win over
the Rose City students on their
home court last week-end, the
Blue and Gold cagers will be out
to stretch their current winning
streak to 11 straight.
The Puget Sound squad, with a
record of three wins against a
single loss, split with Linfleld College in their first series which
proved to be the most important
factor in placing them in their
present position.
Greatly under-rated, the Loggers
stopped the Wildcats, 43-41, and
didn't give up without a flght on
the second night as Linfleld managed to come from behind and
take a 53-51 triumph.
In their last series, the CPS five
took over where the Thunderbirds
left off, taking the Whitman College Missionaries to the cleaners
in a pair of tilts that followed the
UBC-Whltman series.
As for the Portland Pilots, they
have a record of eight wins against
nine losses, but will be out for
revenge when they repay UBC's
visit this week-end.
The Portlanders have been defeated by the University of Oregon, Washington State College,
UBC (twice), Willamette, Linfleld
College, Farragut Navy Station,
and tiie Navy Hospital Team from
Adair, Oregon (twice).
Among the teams they have
downed are Willamette, Pacific
University (three times), College
of Idaho (twice), Lewis and Clark
College, and Reed College.

the Vancouver trip are returned

the train will probably have to go
via Spences Bridge, thus delaying
the journey for four hours.
In any case, anybody who wishes
to make the journey by train is
requested to get in touch with Bill
Anderson, CPR ticket office, or
Fred Roots or Sandy Martin.
Accommodation is limited.
Lambdas Seek
Upset Victory
LAMBDAS will attempt to smash
Kappa Sigs supremacy in the Intramural Touch Football setup when
these two squads meet in the finals
next Tuesday.
The Kappa Sigs, who copped the
crown last year, are favored to
retain the title mainly on the
strength of Sandy Robertson's right
arm. Sandy has pitched the Kappa
Sigs right into the finals with a
one-man offensive that has swept
aside such powerful clubs as the
Jokers, Fijis and Phi Delts.
Teh Lambdas present the most
powerful opposition the Kappa
Sigs have yet had to face. Made
up of ex-Lord Byng freshmen, the
Lambdas have hung up an unbeaten record in their march to
tha finals.
Jokers  and  Alpha  Delts  meet
Friday in a consolation final to
decide third and fourth spots.
Kappa Sigs hit the limelight
again when they meet Betas Monday at 12:30 in the Gym in the
Volleyball semi-fnals.
Finals for the Intramural Volleyball tide will be staged in the UBC
Gym on Wednesday at noon.
Intramural officials plan to put on
a doubleheader, with the girls
playing their finals in the opener.
A silver collection will be taken
up with all donations under one
dollar being accepted for the War
Memorial Gym fund.
OSC Beavers Bop

VETERAN SPARKPLUG—Bud Spiers, above, will lead
his Varsity Veterans mates into battle Saturday afternoon
in the Stadium when the Vets tangle with the Thunderbirds.
The two teams are currently tied for top spot in the Miller
Cup chase with six wins and one loss and this tilt could
easily decide the final standings when the cup is handed out.
ART DODD and Dan Doswell
bring their current rugger feud
right onto the campus Saturday
afternoon when the Varsity Vets
and Varsity Thunderbirds clash
with the leadership of the Miller
Cup race at stake.
The two squads are at present
far out in front of the pack with
six wins against one loss. A win
for either squad would give them
sole leadership as the season hits
the home stretch.
The Doswell-Dodd feud dates
back to pre-war days when Doswell was coaching the Victoria
Crimson Tide and Dodd was doing
likewise with the Vancouver Reps,
At that time Doswell got all the
best of the fight as his Victorians
washed right over the mainland
But Dodd has been getting all
the best of it this season.
He regained a little lost.'prestige
when his Vets handed the Thunderbirds their only loss of the year
with a convincing 11-3 triumph
earlier in the season.
The Vets' coach really rubbed
salt into the wound a couple of
weeks ago when his Vancouver
Lions scored an upset victory over
the Doswell-coached Varsity Reps
to hop right back into the thick of
the McKechnie Cup race. So on
Saturday afternoon, the Thunderbirds will be out to mark up win
number one in this year's edition
of the Dodd-Doswell feud.
