To Print
'Ubyssey
A special edition of the Ubyssey to go to 200,000 homes will
be produced in February, but
the editorial board will have no
control over it.
This was decided by Student
Council Monday night when a
moUon was passed to allow the
Off!) House Committee "final-
tee" all copy appearing in the
apecial edition.
OPPOSITION
Ubyssey Edl tor-In-Chief Peter
Sypnowich immediately opposed
the Council's action fearing loss
of editorial autonomy. With full
backing from the editorial board,
he threatened to have nothing
to do with the special edition.
Committee chairman Jacques
Barbeaux offered Council a
"gentleman's agreement" that
the edition would be marked
plainly, "published by UBC
Open House Committee."
The Ubyssey, to be published
by the Vancouver Province, is
part of the Open House Committee's publicity campaign.
' A regular weekend edition of
the Vancouver Sun will also be
produced February, written and
edited by UBC students.
FULL CONTROL
Barbeau said his committee
wanted "full control" over the
edition.
Sypnowich offered full cooperation with the committee but
felt a transfer of this sort
amounted ,to, non-confidence in
the editorial board.
Walt (Young, Vice-Presidenit
of the Committee, denied under
such a transfer of power that the
editorial board would become
"puppets."
Court   Decides
EUS   To   Share
Student court Monday fixed responsibilty for two raids
on the Publications Board offices on the Board itself and the
Engineering Undergraduate Society.
No blame was fixed on any
campus organization for a third
raid on the Ubyssey offices and
a raid on the Thunderbird-Whit-
worth basketball game of January 14.
Fined five dollars were Douglas Craig, for admittedly being
involved in the raid on the
basketball game; and Denis Ot-
tewell for admittedly taking part
in a raid on the Pub offices on
Friday, January 14.
The court recommended to
Faculty Council that EUS pay
seventy per cent and the 'Pub
Board thirty per cent of damages
done to the Pub offices as a
result of two raids on Thursday
and Friday, January 13 and 14.
In assessing the Pub Board
thirty per cent, the Court ruled
that the Board must accept responsibility for the inflammatory, "My Dog Has Fleas"
column of January 13.
"There is not sufficient evidence to determine who caused
the damage. .." ruled tiie Court
in reference to a third raid on
the Pub offices and thc raid on
tiie   basketball   game.
Tiie court pointed out that
the incident at the game might
possibly have been organized by
students from the residences
rather  than  the  Engineers.
The third raid on the Pub
offices took place at night when
no member of the Pub Board
was presenl although the words,
"UBC Engineers" were painted
on   an   office   mural.
Tiie Court ruled that assessment for damages caused to
the Memorial gymnasium floor
was a matter for Faculty Council and pointed out that Craig
knows the identity of a number
ot    other   participants.

Reunification
Criticized
A hypothetical Russian plan
for German reunification that
would ultimately lead to a Communist Europe, was outlined be
fore a United Nations Club
sponsored meeting Friday noon
The original thesis furthered
by Professor Reischer of the
Department of Slavonics, stressed the flexibility of Russian
strategy.
"It must be remembered," Mr.
Reischer said, "that the Soviet
Union expects almost complete
disruption of Western Union if
Germany is reunified."

Manitoba Talks Way To Cup,
Says Divorce Ruined Rome
In a verbal contest over the liberalization of Canadian
Divorce laws here Friday, University of Manitoba debaters
successfully defended the McGoun Cup.
While Manitoba's team chalked up its fourth consecutive victory in the inter-varsity debating league, two UBC teams gained one win.
Walt Young, Arts 4 and Alan
Thackery, Commerce 3, gained
three points arguing in the negative at the University of Saskatchewan.
At UBC, University of Alberta, also arguing against the proposal, defeated the local team
composed of John Coates, Law
3 and Derek Fraser, Arts 1.
Debating the question,
"Should Canadian divorce laws
be liberalized to the level of
British divorce laws?" four
western universities, represented by two teams each, participated in the annual contest.
SIX POINTS
Both Manitoba teams won
their debates, gaining six points
from Saskatchewan and Alberta.
UBC and Alberta each took
three points, tying for second
place.
University of Alberta's representative, John Brocco, used in
his winning argument a parallel between the moral decay of
the Roman Empire and juvenile
delinquency created by divorce
courts.
JUDGES
Judges at the UBC debate
which was sponsored by Parliamentary Forum, included Supreme Court Judge J. O. Wilson,
D. F. O'Sullivan, president of
the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, and Province columnist
Eric Nicol. Chairman was Dr.
Stanley E. Read of the UBC
English department.

OTTAWA-(CUP)-No immediate action will be taken on
suggestions that the federal government set up a $5,500,000-a-
year scholarship and bursary fund to aid Canadian university
itudents.
Eric Nicol
Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent told a NFCUS delegation
.hat the Ottawa government
would not overstep ''provincial
rights'.' in the matter.
The Prime Minister was reported to have been "receptive"
to the idea of Canada Council
to persuade the futherance of
education across the Dominion
—a recommendation of the Massey Cpmmission on Arts, Letters
and Science.
A Canada Council bill will
come before the next session of
Parliament.
GENEROUS  PLAN
The NFCUS scholarship plan
proposes 2,500 federal government scholarships and bursaries
averaging $500 per year tenable
for four years. This would give
financial aid to 10,000 of 20%
of Canadian students each year.
It would cost the federal government $5,500,000 per year
(one-seventh of one per cent of
the budget).
Last December'saw the opening of the NFCUS campaign for
the adoption of the scholarship
plan with a brief prepared by
the National Committee.
Taking stock of the "insurmountable barriers" to higher
education such as insufficient
finances, and a feeling that higher education is something too
"high to aspire to," the brief
contended that a "broad, though
not revolutionary" scholarship
program was the answer.
ENCOURAGE STUDENTS
The plan devised aimed at encouragement of the "good" students as well as the "brilliant
ones."
A survey made at the time
showed that only 3"< of those
between 15 and 24 in Canada
were attending university compared with 15% in the United
States.
In Canada. 15% of Canadian
students receive aid—often in
small amounts—while in the
United Kingdom, 70% receive
such aid.

SOMEBODY G00FED-BUT THE
'55 TOTEM STILL A GOOD BUY
An error made in Friday's Ubyssey has caused some
misunderstanding and some trouble for AMS staff.
Present price for the 1955 Totem is $4.50 plus tax, A
$2.00 deposit cannot be made now; this was merely a special
fall term offer.
However, last year's Totem received a total of 3365
marks in the Associated Collegiate Press competition, just
35 marks short of 3400 required for an Ail-American
Award. This year's Totem will be better—so it's a good
buy!

JULLIARD
Quartet Returns to Campus
,      By MARIE STEPHENS
The highest calibre of music
interpreted by a unique group
of contemporary artists will
reach the ears of classic lovers
Wednesday when the Julliard
String quartet pays a return
visit to the campus.
Presented under the joint
auspices of the Fine Arts Committees and UBC Special
Events, the quartet is scheduled for two apearances in the
University  Auditorium.
This youthful group of American musicians has been acclaimed by critics throughout
North America and in the
music capitals of Europe as
one of tiie foremost contemporary quartets ranking in quality with both  the famed Aeo-
Lel't to
second
viola.
ht
are: Robert Mann
violin;  Arthur  Winugrade
first violin; Robert Kofi,
cello;  Raphael Hillyer,
lian and Hungarian string
groups.
The Quartet originated and
has its headquarters in the renowned Julliard School of
Music, New York. Following a
common practise of most American colleges in employing
leading figures in the arts and
sciences, the Julliard school
suports the organization and
sponsors its local concerts and
frequent tours.
The program Wednesday
noon features compositions by
Haydn and the modern composer Walter Piston. Admission for this show is 25c. Tiie
evening concert commencing
al H.'.U) features works by contemporary Albeit Berg, Haydn
and Beethoven. Admission is
75c for students and $1.35 for
adults. Page Two

No Interest
The announcement that no immediate action will be
taken toward a national scholarship program is disappointing
but not surprising.
However, it was disconcerting in that no hint of agreement in prnciple was contained. Prime Minister St. Laurent
showed not a whit of enthusiasm for such a plan, but only
referred vaguely to "provincial rights to education.'
It aparently is not a case of the Federal Government
not having enough money to finance the $5,500,000 NFCUS
proposal, Money available or not, the government is not
interested.
This is grave news. It means that Canadian university
slludents will be doomed to paying their own way through
universtiy for some years to come.
It means that some will be forced to drop out of school
because of the pressure, that others will suffer in their grades,
and worst of all, that many of real intelligence will be unable
to attend university at all.
It promises little for the future of Canadian universities,
or even the future of Canada itself. Intelligence has yet to
be the prequisite of university attendance.
The   Last   Straw
The days of the crusading press appear to be on the
wane in the United States. The latest reversal of journalism's noble past is the Washington National Press Club's
hesitancy to admit a Negro newsman to its ranks.
The press club is the home of 4496 Washington newsmen. It is divided over whether to admit Atlanta Daily
World correspondent Louis Lautier. The only objection to
Mr. Lautier is the color of his skin.
The board of governors has temporarily admitted the
reporter pending a membership decision. Opponents to admittance of Mr. Lautier maintain it would "wreck the club."
The Negro is fighting for his rights in this case as he
has on other occasions. He led Negro correspondents in their
fight for admittance to thc congressional press galleries in
1947.
If the National Press Club succumbs to the racial element in its ranks, it will be  ranked as a seat of bigotry.
<
The club cannot aford to be cast in such a rriold. People
have comforted themselves with the assurance that at least
some security for civil rights exists in the U.S.
If newspapermen, the traditional guardians of justice
and civil liberties, tacidly endorse open racial segregation,
what hope is there?
GUEST   EDITORIAL
Merely   To   Win ?
We lost all our football games. We lost three of our
four basketball games so far. Immediately we want to quit
playing against Evergreen Conference teams and play against
teams we know we can beat—in these two sports.
What would we gain by playing these teams? We might,
have a few more people watching us but that would only
last until people realize we were playing in a weaker Conference. All we are doing is looking around to find someone that we can beat. We would not be improving our calibre
of sports.
Do people think our swimmers, golfers, tennis players
would be boter because they beat Universities on the prairies
which  are snowbound  for  much  of  the  year?
Would our track and field enthusiasts better their individual records just because they were performing against
ihe prairie universities?
Therelore the one good roatson for joining a Canadian
Conlerenee could only be lo improve our gate receipts. This
wolud last only until people realize that we are playing
obivously weaker tcants.
If the people want to see other Canadian College teams
play against the Thunclerbirils, then let us have compulsory
"A-Cards" and with the extra money try to arrange exchange games with eastern colleges. Witfi a little advertising,
we could have an overflowing rn>vvcl at the gym if the
Tluuuierbirds wore playing . . . let us say, University of
Toronto for the Canadian Collegiate Basketball Championship
Yours  for  belter sport.-,,
Jorgen IMuiuk, Arts II
ITS LIKE
THIS
I'VE  BEEN   THINKING   a
lot lately about this intangible
respect that outsiders owe to
we educated men,
However, to develop the bud
of respect into full-blossomed
admiration takes more than a
little bit of culturing.
Fortunately there are many
ways in which this emotional
truck farming can be accomplished. If you are forced to
move among non-varsity people
you might as well reap some
sort of harvest.
Dress is an important thing
in keeping this respect alive
in outsiders. A University Man
must nourish a certain careless
fastidlty of dress.
FANTASIA
Personally for afternoon
wear I 'usually choose a double-
breasted dinner jacket over
turlte-necked sweater. A certain well-groomed sloppiness
is to be aimed at.
The big secret actually, is to
be practical to the point of the
fantastic. If it is raining, tbe
shocking practicability of hip
waders identifies you positively
as a Varsity Man.
Be casual about the appearance. Contempt for the ndrm
is desireable. *
Posture too, can be utilized
in winning the crowd. When
you walk try to strike a mean
between a proud saunter and a
gay spring of step.
Nothing is more discrediting
than a non-commital gait.
And never stand—slouch. Always attempt to find something
to lean against.
I'M TIRED
The test of a "showman" is,
of course, in conversation.
Don't laugh, there comes a time
in every University Man's life
when he is forced to commit
himself on some question of import. You can put .it off only
so long. By the time you reach
third year people begin to expect things from you.
Remember the object in verbal encounters are the same as
anything else—keep the Great
Myth alive.
Constant avoidance of discussion is all evrv well bul as
I have pointed out eventually
you are forced into discussion.
When this happens, be incoherent as long as possible.
This is a stalling device until you are able to be subtle.
As a matter of fact incoherency
can sometimes be passed off as
sublety if the right approach is
used.
CHIT CHAT
• Subtlety not only offers the
.shield of puzzlement but also
multifariousness of interpretation—this latter aspect is invaluable in avoiding being pinned
down.
Above all, never listen. It
lowers you in the eyes of the
speakers. The best way to avoid
listening  is to yell.
This of course causes the
rest of the rabble to yell also.
But this is desirable as it enables you to be not only non-
commital but unheard as well.
If someone does corner you
and attempt lo make you listen,
start   yawning.
If this doesn't discourage Mr.
Friendly—go home. J
i
WHAT'S THAT j
I have been urged many|
limes to write a small hand-'
book on the subject of what I
choose to call "showmanship."
However I rather fancied a
posthumous publication of my
articles or belter still a collection of my letters.
I always make carbon copies
of my letters with the latter
view in mind. I save my
Christmas cards too, you know. ■
That noble game of life
whose object is the fruits of
respect  has yet  begun  for me.
There are many aspects yet
to be exploited. The horses at
the starling gale but how many
have been scratched before
Ihey start is ycl to be deter
mined.   .   , ;
A   Good   Chance   For   Football
Football, tiie boisterous spirit
rousing game which first gained its western popularity on
the playing field of our prairie
universities, may soon return
to these same campi. If interested student groups from Winnipeg to Vancouver succeed
in. their current attempts to
revive enthusiasm for the venture, an inter-university league
may begin functioning within
two years.
Efforts to reintroduce the
game to campus were first initiated by member newspapers
of the Western University
Press. Editors and staff from
the four publications concerned repeatedly studied league
prospects* at their annual regional conferences. While the
formidable nature of the undertaking has precluded immediate
results, progress to date is encouraging, even on the Manitoba campus.
News reports from Edmonton, centre of organizational
activity, suggest that the Universities of British Columbia,
Alberta, and Saskatchewan are
favorably disposed towards investing sufficient funds to successfully operate a four team
league. However, a recent announcement from the office of
Dr. Saunderson, president of the
University of Manitoba, indicates that the administration
on this campus is unwilling to ,
undertake immediate 'steps in ,
this regard. Reasons advanced
for the decision are understandable.
The annual cost of equipping
and supporting a football team
in either Alberta or Saskatchewan is estimated at $10,000.
Expenses incurred for travelling would increase this sum to
$14,000 yearly for the two remote universities of British
Columbia and Manitoba. Such
funds are not presently available here, without prior curtailment of our program of in-,
ter faculty sports. Because of
the wide popularity it enjoys
(67 per cent of the students
___,_._,_..,       •      -^iSiiiiiaaB|
participate in al least one sport),
the inter-faculty schedule cannot be altered. The only remaining method whereby suf-*
ficient funds could be secured
is through a fee,increase. A
minimum compulsory raise of
$3.50 per student would only
cover the initial costs of organizing a football team. The Board
of Governors is unlikely to approve either course of action—
and we would concur with their
judgement.
But Dr. Saunderson's announcement should be regarded solely as a statement of
current administrative, policy.
The possibility of a university
football team in the near future
is not wholly destroyed. What
ls required to convert these
dreams into reality is a distinct
and definite show of student
support. Indications of this necessary enthusiasm are now appearing. •»
A committee of interested
students, headed by lawyers
Morton Nemy and Zivy Feld-
man, have undertaken to raise
the necessary financial guarantees required to organize a
team. By a system of pledges,
students fire asked whether
they would be willing to purchase a $4 season ticket should
a university football squad be
formed. Without yet entering
upon a campaign, thc group has
succeeded in obtaining four
.hundred signatures amongst
downtown students in two days.
Although the venture has already gained the support of
Coach "Bud" Fraser, and the
interest of officials in the Administration Building, a formal
campaign for pledges is being
withheld pending approval by
the Alumni Association, and
the University of Manitoba Students' Union.
Should such approval be
shortly forthcoming, and should
sufficient pledges be raised,
Coach Eraser feels that the
framework of a formidable
team would be assured within
two years.
__a-_M--B----M__-B-^-----M>-±--^-----_-_
The future of inter-Varsliy
football now rests with the
Alumni and students of this
universtiy. May the days be-
near when we will again cheer
a team in "brown and gold,"
and shout the meaningful
phrase, "ON MANITOBA."

THE   UBYSSEY
PigeTXnm
Photog
Taken
For Ride
Undaunted by their recent
chastisement, UBC Engineers
struck again Friday night, abducting a Ubyssey photographer
suspected of knowing the whereabouts of Joe Blotz.
Denis Maze, subject of the
kidnapping, was grabbed as he
entered a dance at Magee High
School. His assailants then
dragged him into a waiting car
and sped off to the campus. During the wild ride Maze lost a
valuable cuff link, a quantity of
change  and his dignity.
Unsatisfied with Maze's confessed ignorance, the Engineers
issued an ultimatum giving him
a week to produce Blotz "or
else."
Maze was returned to the
dance, two hours after the
"snatch," intact, though a little,
pale. He said they were quite
rough, but offered him a bottle
of the best if he tells them the
whereabouts of Blotz.
The photog's fate was sealed
when his name was linked with
the iron idol by an anonymous
tipster.
Reports indicate the "Red
Raiders" havaf several othejrs
under scrutiny and will pursue
their quarry until Joey is found.

SETS   APPLAUDED
Infernal   Machine  A   Hit
Mock   Parliament
This year's "Mock Parliament" will be held Thursday
noon in Arts 100. Liberals will
form  the government.
By SYLVIA SHORTHOUSE
Capacity audiences in the
UBC auditorium Friday and
Saturday nights enthusiastically received the English Department's powerful 'production of Jean Cocteau's modern
version of the sordid Oedipus
legend, "The Infernal Machine.'
Highly imaginative and
'modern sets of Charles Steg-
man, together with convincing characterization under the
brilliant direction of Joy Coghill, made the performance the
lop campus presentation of the
season.
JOCASTRA OUTSTANDING
Guest artist Phoebe Smith
gave a stellar performance as
the wife and mother of Oedipus, Jocastra, with captivating
voice and perfection of movement.
In the difficult role of the
proud victim of fate, King
Oedipus, Frank Joy, was frequently impressive, but lack
ed variation. His perloriiianue
was marred at times by his
tendency towards emotional
over-emphasis.
The strong and consistent
performance of Peter Brockington as Tiresius,' the wise
and blind soothsayer, was one
of the most outstanding.
An excellent interpretation
of the frightening, yet pitiable
weapon of the gods, the
Sphinx, was created by Doris
Chilcott.
*
The dynamic production was
held together by a strong supporting cast of eleven, prominent among whom were Ian
Currie, Johr. Brockington,
Richard Irwin and Tom Short-
house.
CRITICALLY  SPEAKING
Parts of the scripts could
.have been shortened a great
deal to increase, the impact,
largely created by three dimensional sound effects _ and
forcible prejections . of the
UBC Film Society.    Extreme
repetition in some scenes caused an occasional dragging of
pace.
Dazzling costumes designed
by Francoise Andre, stylized
makeup by Sidney Risk and
electrifying sets brought
rounds of applause from thc
audience, but at times overshadowed the characters themselves.

Another penalty score by
"Toe" Morley (10 points by
"foot", he made), raised it to
11-6. Skip McCarthy and Morley
upped the total by 5 to 16-6;
then it was Newton again teaming with the "Toe" again, to
give the Birds a 21-6 cushion. A
final twist of the knife by Capt.
Doug MacMlllan's try, closed the
day's achievements 24-8.
Varsity looked shaky during
the first portion of the game,
and miss-fired discouragingly
often. Once warmed though, the
machine was unstoppable.
UNDEFEATED
In two weeks, February S,
comes the do-or-die test against
Vancouver's undefeated Reps for
the McKechnie Cup. A "winner-
take-all" match it is, with Vancouver a six-point favorite. Odds
may go out the window, however, as the "come-back kids"
have the stamina and enthusiasm
to upset apple carts. McKechnie

Team  Out of Defeat
Thunderbirds 24 - Nor'West 6
By PETE WORTHINGTON
From the dregs of defeat Saturday, UBC rugger Thunderbirds came from nowhere to trample Nor'West All Stars 24-6
and seize the lead for the McKechnie Cup.
150 spectators at the Owen'
Bowl, and an unknown number
of TV shutins, saw Nor'West
outplay Varsity for two-thirds
of the game. A spectacular penally kick by Dave Morley—long
and high from a difficult angle
—gave Birds an early 3-0 lead.
Morley seems to lean towards
the difficult, and makes impossible boots the commonplace,
while he occasionally slips up
on the sure things.
PENALTY
The 3-0 lead held up until a
deserving Nor'West XV scored
an unconverted try by half time.
In the second half Nor'West
pushed Birds roughly about, and
Harry Winter kicked an excellent penalty to give Nor'West a
seemingly large 6-3 edge.
Soon after that the roof fell
in. Hurt and angered, Varsity
cut loose. John Newton's first of
two tries broke up the ball game,
as Bob Morford converted to put
UBC, ahead 8-6.
CHIEFS   TIE
Bird XI
Loses
Close One
HALECOS 2-BIRDS 1
CHIEFS 3- SUNSET 3
By NEIL MACDONALD
Crippled by injuries and
hard luck, Varsity's soccer
squad lost a 2 to 1 heart-
breaker to a rugged, hustling
Halecos club Sunday at Trimble Park, while Chiefs drew
3-3 with Sunset.
The Chief game produced the
first point UBC's third division
team has garnered in some time.
Chiefs outplayed the Sunset
team, but fell in the final minutes to gain only a tie.
It was slender, rugged Nell
McKechnie who spoiled Varsity's chances in the game. The
former New Westminster Royal
scored to tie up the game late
in the first half and then, with
seconds remaining, he pumped
the winner home.
PENALTY
Bruce Ashdown scored Varsity's first goal on a free shot,
resulting from a penalty. The
ball caromed off the corner post
and caught Haleco's goaltender,
Clive Hughes, flatfooted. Later
in the first period, Hughes pulled
off highway robbery by stopping
a couple of bullet drives from
the hustling Ashdown.
Bruce missed a golden opportunity to put Varsity ahead in
the second half but an alert
Haleco defcnseman tipped the
ball off his toe, just in time.
CLOSE
The game was extremely close
with both teams getting their
share of chances. Jack Butter-
field played well on the Varsity   defense.
Ian Todd had to retire from
the game after the first half
from a charley-horse in his leg.
Ernie Kuyt was hindered between the posts by a sore shoulder; while Dick Matthews suffered a back  injury.
The game was played on an
extremely rough, uneven field,
which survived the afternoon
drizzle  with  little  effect.
In the Chief game, UBC was
leading 3-2 with five minutes
to go but Sunset tied the score.
UBC scorers were Jergen
Schilling, Dodnan Gopaulsingh,
and  Oscar Kreutziger.

Swimmers Win
Beat Six Records
Led by record-breaking swimming of Don McLennan and
Bob Bagshaw, Max Howell's UBC swim team maintained its
usual Evergreen Conference supremacy by defeating Western
Washington 62-21 in a meet held Saturday at the YMCA pool.
Bagsbaw    established    n e w*
UBC records in the 220, 400, and
440-yard freestyle races and McLennan set new marks in the 40,
60, and 100-yard freestyles. AH
marks were for a 20-yard pool.
SUPERIOR ,
Even in diving, the unknown
quantity, UBC proved superior
when Don Franci* placed first
in the competition.
Vancouver YMCA also entered some swimmers, but was not
in the official competition.
300-yard Medley relay: 1,
YMCA; 2, UBC (Lee, Van Tets,

New  Team  Sharp
For  First  Game
Blue Bombers 5 - Braves 3
Tomahawks 5 • Meralomas 0
Blunderbirds 3 • Kats 6
Saturday was a red-letter day on several counts. First the
shock of coach Maxie Howell turning "swimmer" for a day,
must have upset rugger Braves somewhat, for they lost 5-3 to
Blue Bombers in their first defeat of the season.
Other Carmichael Cup scores
show that Tomahawks have
taken lead of the league by
stopping Meralomas 5-1. A close
but decisive game which gives
Toms the winningest reputation
of Varsity right now.
SURPRISE
The surprise of Saturday, however, was over in Balaclava
Park where Limey Coryell
"coached" his "Blurbs" to a
mere 6-3 loss, to a souped-up
padded Kats XV. If one dare use
the phrase, it was a "moral victory." Embarrassing, but true.
Kats kicked-off to Blurbs, and
30 sees later Kafs somehow
led 3-0. It was discouraging
Unquestionably they were the
superior ruggerites, but Blurbs
would not agree. Kats earned another score to make it 6-0.
DRIBBLING
As things began to turn from
black to blacker, and as first half
time ran out, Blurbs launched
a desperate "dribbling" attack.
Twenty and 30-yard dribble-
kicks squirted the ball into Kats'
end zone.
From way out in the weeds
of left field stormed Bruce
Eagle at full tilt, and launched
himself at the floundering ball.
He made it! And though his
lungs had t be re-inflated by
hand after his breath-shattering
dive, Varsity was on the scoreboard  6-3.
No more points were scored,
but much in the way of never-
before-seen tactics were produced. One example was when Gord
Elliot at tackle broke loose with
the ball. All 220-odd pounds of
him in the clear at the same
time. He decided to punt. At
the height of his rhino-like
charge  he  did  so,  and   tiie. ball
skidded   like   a   plastered   golf-
ball—backwards!
His toe seemed to miss the ball
on th way up, but his heel drove
it back on the way down. Quite
something. Referee Eric Cardinal, as capable a ref as one could
wish, laughed outright; so did
coach Don; and Elliot.
They are an OK team.

Birds'  Win  Skein
Central 76 - UBC 63
By  BERGIE
Bird basketball stock dropped again Friday night as the
Varsity Quintet failed in an attempt at a second conference win.
Once  again,   the   Birds  were'
plagued   by   "Those   Dirty   Old
Second Half Blues."
UBC was actually in the lead
until late in the third quarter
before the Wildcats tied it at
41 all. Central then jumped to a
20 point lead before the Birds
were able to close the gap to
a slightly more respectable 13
points.
For a change, it was not offensive but defensive weaknesses that hurt the Birdmen. It
is in the scoring column that a
couple of bright -lights shine
"strictly   for  the  Birds."
John McLeod seemed to return to his pre-Christmas form
as he hit for 25 points. Also, j
a scoring threat has developed
in the form of Ed Wild—a
guard yet. He picked up 17
points   in   Friday's   tussle.
UBC (63) McLeod 25, Pollock

Dave Hallett in the first half
and Bhagwhat Jawanda and Bal-
bir Johel in the second half
scored goals for Varstiy. The
team netted two more but the
goals were disallowed.
POOR CHECKING
Because of the poor checking
of the Blackbird forwards, nearly every team-man had a shot
on goal.
UBC had an uphill fight to
tie   with   the   Northmen,   after
