SPC To Seek
Retractions
The Social Problems Club voted
at their Friday noon meeting 'o ask
Student Council to make official
retraction of charges that the club
is politically biased.
Also passed was a resolution op.
posing formation of "any student
committee that would rest-let the
right of clubs to present political
on other speakers."
Members voted to approve such a
body provided it was empowered
only tt bring political speakers in
addition to those presented by
clubs.
Meanwhile, representatives cf the
Social Problems Club, Student
Christian Movement, International
Relations Club, Parliamentary For.
urn, and the embryonic socialist
club met to discuss setting up of
the proposed committee.
No decision was readied and an.
ether meeting is scheduled for next
Friday.

Thunderbird Theatre series, presented by the University of British Columbia Radio Society—usually heard from the downtown
studios of CKMO every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m.—will be broadcast
from the studios of URS in Brock
Hell for the first time this term,
announced amateur radio society
officials.
A documentary play, ""Hie
Wright Brothers," written and produced by Peter Duval, is to be
featured |cn the embryo networks'
first program—from Brock Hall.
PRACTICE
"This presentation is in keeping
with the society's practice of pre.
senting different farms of pro-
grpms, such as fantasy, farce, and
serious drama," said Ray Perrault
president of URS.
Words of highest praise for the
Thunderbird Theatre and URS
were made at a recent convention
of the American Association of
Broadcasters in Chicago.
During discussion of university
participation in radio broadcasting, UBC's Theatre was held as an
example for other universities and
radio station managers throughout
America.
Those who attended the fashion show last Wednesday
in Brock Hall—sponsored jointly by the Women's Undergraduate Society and Woodward's—agreed unanimously that
the clothes modelled were just what the college miss would
give her all to possess.
~———————^—— Harem   pyjamas,   belted   plaid
frocks, a black nylon checked raincoat, and a tailored red Jaeger
whipcord suit, were included in
the first group of women's garments modeled.
HENRY V TO BE SHOWN
AT SPECIAL PREVIEW
Shakespeare's "Henry V," in a
film production by Laurence Olivier will be shown at a special
performance for members of the
faculty and student body of the
University of British Columbia oi.
the evening of November 28 in the
Park Theatre.
Thirty per cent of the proceeds
arc to be donated to the Wai
Memorial Campaign by Mr. O
Sutherland of Odeon Theatres.
This technicolor movie is expected by Sutherland to play at
special performances only, for
several weeks to come. Tickets for
evening performances will cost
$1.88.
"Lasting two hours and fourteen minutes the feature will be
exclusively Henry V, as there are
no "shorts," he said.
Time Magazine, in its three-page
review, says of the production
"Seldom during that time Ov/ea it
fudge or fall short of the best that
its author gave it."
Henry V is played by Laurence
Olivier who also directed and produced the film. Others in the cast
include Robert Newton, Lt sue
Banks, Renee Ashton, Esmond
Knight, Felix Aylmer, and Let
Genn.
Money Troubles
For Fraternity
Fifteen hundred cents is a lot of
pennies, and a person counting
them is liable to arrive at an incorrect total once in a while.
This is the opinion of members
of UBC's Delta Upsilon fraternity
when they received $15.04 in copper coins from Bob Hill, as a life
membership in their fraternity.
MISTAKE
"I'm not surprised that Hill made
n mistake, for he was a bit of a
character while attending UBC,"
leughed Bud Smith, treasurer for
his fraternity.
Bob Wilson, another DU member,
added that Hill had probably become even more of a character
since he left the campus.
PENICILLIN
Hill graduated from UBC two
years ago in dairy bacteriology and
i.s now making penicillin for
Merck's Chemical company in
Montreal.
When studying here he was reported by Agricultural Undergraduates as a mainstay for the traditional Aggie, Arts, and Science
bbttles.

COUNCIL DECISION
AGAINST CONTEST
Charges of "railroad" tactics by the University of
Saskatchewan's Student Representative Council have been
leveled at the western universities beauty contest, finals of
which will be held in University of British Columbia's
Armory, November 16.
Saskatchewan's Council vetoed their former decision to
enter the contest by a vote of 8-1, going on record as feeling
that "proper consideration had not been given to the member
universities by those who inaugurated the idea". No explanation was given for their charge of "railroad" tactics.

AS OTHERS SAW US
Yesterday's issue of The Varsity carried
a story from Vancouver which stated that
the Student Council of The University of
British Columbia had refused a club permission to present Tim Buck ag speaker at one
of its meetings. This was done, said the announcement "in order to preserve the good
name of the university."
It is to be hoped that University of Toronto authorities never take the same stand.
The good name of a university is not measured by the degree to which it caters to the
political opinions of the majority, but by the
standard of academic and intellectual freedom which it maintains.
Censorship of opinion is definitely not one
of the functions of a university, or of a student council. From refusal to allow freedom
of opinion to an undergraduate society to
refusal to allow freedom of opinion in the
lecture room is only a step. And from there
the road leads to Nazi book-burnings, political exile for men with opinions, and the abrogation of all the fundamental freedoms.
To admit Tim Buck as a speaker to a
group seeking opinions on social problems
does not imply approval of his party platform by the university. As a matter of fact,
in 1937 Tim Buck did speak to students at
the University of British Columbia, to a number of more than two hundred. It is not recorded that a heavy Communist vote was
registered at the next provincial election,
nor that any criticism was directed at the
university.
By this immature and ill-advised ruling,
the Student Council has done more harm
than good to the reputation of the university.

of Toronto, for November 1,1946.
The Children's Hour
By   LES BEWLEY
Hello there> my ebullient little elfkins.
Stop making those anticipatory week-end
noises and let's have a little order in here.
'Tis of thee we sing, anyway, when we rake
over the ash-heap of last week's news and
drag out the still-twitching corpse of the
Student Council v. Timothy Buck.
Nothing, we agree, could be deader than
last week's "Ubyssey"; and perhaps, like us,
you're bored with all this muck about Buck.
Sorry, if so.
You must, however, consider how divinely
frustrating the whole business has been for
both ProBucks and AntiBucks alike. Poor
ProBucks and AntiBucks. They both felt
obliged to make public declamations, after
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire, to the effect that: "I disapprove of what you say, but
I will defend to the death your right to say
it." (As if, indeed, the Furious Frenchman
were a sort of Gallic Kid from Brooklyn,
peddling a pasteurized brand of the Milk
of Human Kindness.)
FISTICUFFS ? — FAUGH!
But we should consider brawling on the
Campus, in the Temple of Truth, to be quite
as repugnant as if, for instance, one were to
discover eighteen members of the Church of
England struggling on the floor of the church
vestry.   Not b y likely.
Poor ProBucks and AntiBucks. You hoi-
polloi; you poor, dumb, inarticulate, AMS
fees-paying, downtrodden masses; do you
know the restraint, the fortitude, the intellectual accomplishment involved in resisting
that pre-Volitarian barbarity which goes:
"say that again and I'll kick your teeth in"?
Do you? -
Look here, elfkins; if we're going to do
this thing, let's do it right, with some gusto.
No meetings.   No wranglings, no bickering.
Fix a date for Timothy's Triumphal Tour.
Announce it in the Press. Place two (2)
lnrge crates of axe-handles on the Library
lawn. Then let the AntiBucks stop Timothy
from coming in, if they can. And let the
ProBucks bring Timothy in—if they can.
We offer that as the ideal solution to the
problem of a campus permanently split into
ProBucks and AntiBucks, with nagging and
recriminations rampant.
WE WANT WHOOZIS
Timothy won't mind. A man who can
emerge from a Canadian prison cell, alive
and whole, into which he alleged that Fascist
police to wit, fired leaden slugs, could face
our little Donnybrook with equanimity. If
he makes it to Arts 100, he's home free. And
as an old public speaker, we can assure you
that strolling into a public meeting, to be
greeted by apathetic faces, never will hold
a candle to being carried in by screaming
supporters over the dead and dying bodies
of disgruntled opponents'. It gives you that
wanted feeling.
Our plan, though, has an added virtue to
commend it. You won't be able to tell a
ProBuck from an AntiBuck afterward.
Let the Jokers collect the bodies from the
boulevards and dispose of same by throwing
them from the Marine Drive cliffs before
notifying next-of-kin. They (the Jokers)
will probably think that quite funny, and
laugh like anything. If they remember, that
is, to let go of the corpses in time.
Well, ballots or bullets, we'll be right
there, Timothy. Right up front, where you
can drop us a conspiratorial smile now and
again. Besides, we want to see the technics
of a platform delivery that will enable a
man to talk for twenty years on the same
subject.

campus beat
By WARREN DAMER
One of the more amusing things about university is its
sophistication. The word itself tends to take on as many
connotations as there are ways of bruising the mint for a
Bacchanalian highball.
Over in the Aggie department there is some talk about
the young man who was blushingly assisting in operations to
make the old sow happy just after her blessed events.   'Tis
said he went through quite a farrowing experience.
TOTIE'S   HAD  IT
The Fnrcau-y lab with all its hydraulics and the like are putting the
pressure this year on those little Toties who turn out to be just a lot of
sap.   Wooden that splinter your cranium!
The more disgruntled sections of the Engineers are discussing the
establishment of a new degree for those taking the steam option. It will
be known as a BT. or Bachelor of Temperature. We hear it is pretty
hot stuff.
The census-taker will probably go into the motorcycle business when
he hears that local two-lung luggers prefer twins.
With all the fiddling going on these days around the campus, it seems
likely that the Mussocs will have little trouble in finding enough strings
to support their Pinafore.
DOORS   WITH   USES
Revolving doors have a lot of uses. The ones in the Library have
been useful for some time in helping people who go around together to
get through.
Thu general tenor of masculine bull-sessions in the cafeteria seems
to run over a great variety of topics.  All the way from women to woman.
Cocker spaniels or no cocker spaniels, most Toties going to the polls
around UBC are likely to pass the Buck.
Some people go down to the Oeorgla to sit in the lobby and wait until
the rain lets up.
His is a story of managerial success. While working for George he
rose to position tequiring much study of papers and the direction of
personnel from his desk. During his following civilian life he also held
sedentary executive positions Ia a broader sense, he remained ensconced
upon his posterior both during and after the war.

more promising—and for a change,
more definite. The Film Survey
Group are having an extra showing this Saturday of the film-
classic, "M," which will be shown
twice in the John Oosse Theatre,
at 3:30 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m.
There will be an extra fee of
twenty-five cents for the extra
afternoon showing, but the opportunity it affords of seeing this
Oerman psychological thriller
starring Peter Lore is sufficient
justification.
The showing of this film at this
present moment is especially timely since H offers a field for comparison with Laurence Oliviers's
version of "Henry V, the Chronicle Historie of Henry the Fifth
with his battle fought at Agin
Court in France, by Will Shakespeare" which will be currently
showing in town this coming
week.
The period is roughly equivalent, though Henry fought his
"battle" in 1415. Also comparable
except for one contemporary emendation—we should wish that all
our best expression in the arts be
banned.
Judging from the line-ups to
see "The Outlaw," the best way
to get High School Students tc
read Shakespeare isn't to parse
him to death in the schools, but
to publicly ban his books from thc
schools. Incidently, they might
discover, if they read him, how
very much better Shakespeare
(and Rabelais and Voltaire ana
Diderot) are at this sort of writing than ia the author of "Thc

more prevading present display ot

You Eyesight is Precious!
Protect it with BETTER LIGHT
Now, as the days grow shorter, home lights will
burn longer. Save yourself from needless eye-strain,
with attendant headaches and general tiredness, by
ensuring that your lighting equipment Is ample
and of correct wattage. Children especially require
good light. In these days of school and home study,
close concentration on reading matter Imposes
extra burdens on sensitive eyes. And, It goes without saying, your eyesight Is just about your most
important possesion! Isn't It worth safeguarding
by making sure of better light . . . for better sight?

STUDENT DRIVERS
'FAVORED BY POLICE
By   KEN   WEAVER
"University student drivers are co-operative, although
there is btill room for improvement," is the opinion of Constable Dowling. constable in charge, University detachment
B.C. Police.
"Students on the whole, are not difficult as to obeying
traffic regulations, but there have been a few prosecutions,"
he states, "mostly for exceeding the speed limit and for failing to obey a stop sign."
To date, there have been rough-        —^——————————
ly 100 violations.
FORMULA
Constable Dowling's formula for
decreasing this number lis for students to get up ten minutes earlier. "The usual excuse we get for
speeding," he says, "is that the
driver is hurrying to make a lecture."
"We have a major traffic problem out here," states policeman
v Dowling, ''and these precautions
are for the students' own benefit."
Between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. the traffic is at its worst, with about 1500
cars trying to get into the parking
. lot He estimates that the north
corner of the Mall is busier than
Granville and Hastings.
ARRANGEMENTS
Arrangements are being made to
have a local man appointed as
magistrate to handle traffic fines
in the University Area. Under
the present system a student spends
a lot of time traveling to and
from the Court House ag well as
the tune spent in court If the
new system ls adopted it would
save a lot of minutes for the Police Department as well as for tht
students.
It ls estimated that the average
fine is around ten dollars, but Constable Dowling warns that if the
violations continue, stiffer mess,
ures will hsve to be taken.
VIOLATORS
Traffic violaters in the City of
Vancouver are fined anywhere be-
'   tween twenty-five and fifty dollars
as well as losing their driver's licence.
Fortunately, there has not been
either a fatal or a major accident
this year. At the beginning of the
term however, there was a considerable number of minor accidents.
The new parking system Is working out all right, so policeman
Dowling thinks, and will reduce
greatly the chance of people getting hit by cars, that formerly cut
across the traffic in the parking
lot.
WARNS STUDENTS
Constable Dowling would like to
warn all student and faculty members who are from other parts of
Canada that their licence's must
be registered in British Columbia
and carry the license plate of
this province. He would also like
to warn those students who drive
out to the UBC that they must
carry their license at all times.
Hitch hikers came in for a bit
of criticism from the police officer:
he suggested that instead of standing aleng the main part of the Mall;
they move over to the iroad in
front of the parking lot. On this
piece of asphalt, he said, there is
more room for cars to swing
around a halted vehicle. Thus a
traffic snag can be avoided.
"Oh yes, there's one more thing,"
said Officer Dowling to your reporter, "while we have been talking, I noticed that you are parked
in front of a fire hydrant. . .
Here's one of the Police Department's special ten dollar engraved
Ir.vitations!"

The Radio Society is now a

Macdonald, LSE prexy.
"They have done a great amount
of work and really deserve the
promotion" commented Macdonald.
This brings the number of major clubs on the UBC campus vu
six.
Professors Make
Model Engineers
"Students should model themselves after their professors," said
Applied Science student Jack Han-
na in a toast to the Science faculty
at the twenty-first annual Science
banquet held early this week in
the Commodore Cabaret. Hanna
spoke before a near capacity audience.
Gordon Genge, president of the
Engineers Undergraduate Society,
was Toastmaster. The affair opened with the singing of the "Keeper
of the Flag".
SPEAKERS

evening came in the form of Vancouver comedian Fran Dowie.
Amidst laughter and applause he
organized the Engineers for a song
fest followed by the presentation
of an "Engineer's Skit".
The program ended to the singing
of the department's marching song
"We are the Engineers."

Former members of the Canadian Army may wear their uniforms on civvy street provided

This has recently been verified
iu a new ruling published by the
Department of National Defence.
In addition to permitting veterans
to wear the uniform for 30 days
following their discharge or retirement, the order states that they
may be worn by any ex-service
personnel at any time following
discharge, providing the written
permission of the Commanding Officer of the district in which the

They may also be granted per.

Pre-Med students who have not

"If tardy signers are not registered by the time the board meets,
they will be out of luck," he said.
Students are reminded that registration does not tie the students
to the Pre-Med Undergraduate

students planning to enter medicine, Fowler explained.

UBC STUDENTS LUCKY;
OVERSEAS PROBLEM BAD
By DON ROBERTSON
Don't grouse about overcrowding,
cafeteria meals, lack of text books,
and other petty matters. Stop nnd
take note of the difficulties and
hardships of students the world
over, as reported by the International Students' Service.
LUXURY
Compared to the universities of
Europe and Asia, UBC is living in
the lap of luxury. Even if our
lecture rooms have been supplemented by army huts, look at the
conditions prevailing at the University of Budapest, where lectures
are often cancelled on rainy days
because of great holes in the roof.
The lack of fuel will probably close
this university for four months
this winter.
On the other side of the world,
in Pao-Chi, China, 6,000 student
refugees live and study in caves,
and on mud floors. In Kunming,
they are a little more fortunate in
having a small group of thatched
buildings.
PRAGUE
Overcrowded — not nearly so
much as the universities of Prague,
where they are forced to hold lectures at night In the city theatres.
Cafeteria meals at UBC aren't sc
bad. They are a luxury compered
to the diet of the Viennese student
who subsists on a plate of dry
noodles and potatoes, with a bit
of lettuce. Students at Yenching
University, in Peking, have a usual
fere of a few balls of bread, some
corn meal loaves and water soup.
TEXTS
Text books are difficult to obtain at UBC but the poor European and Asiatic student is virtually without texts of any kind.
Books, when available tin their
countries, are $o expensive, that
the student finds it impossible to
buy them. The International Student Service aids whenever possible, and through this service,
mimeographed sheets are made
available.
Symphonic Club
Presents Program
An evening program ef aiusu,
will be held in the University
Tuck Shop November 14 at 7:30
p.m. by the University Symphonic
Club.
The program will consist mainly
of a complete recording of the
opera, "Barber of Seville."
UES TO HELP
WITH STUDIES
It is suggested by the University
Employment Service that student
who need coaching in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Oerman, or
French, should contact the Employment Service's office in Hut
M 7.
Officials at the employment office have made a similar suggestion for students having essays ot
theses which need to be typed.

ANOTHER BRIGHT SPORT CARD
Vanity's athletes are at it again this weekend in another largesome sport card that promises to be very interesting. Varsity's footballing Thunderbirds take to the gridiron again this afternoon, this time to meet the boys from
down Linfield way.
Whether or not the Blue and Gold boys will be able to
break into the win column is yet to be seen but we can be
aure that the boys are going to put up a fight for the fans in
their lntt appearance of the year before a home crowd under
the American code.
Coach Greg Kabat is satisfied that the boys are catching
on to the American style and are improving in every game.
That in itself is a pat on the back for the 'Birdmen but they
still want to win a game.
Canadian Rules For Next Title
Now that the team has decided to play for the Seaforth
Cup, I! the Big Four accepta the conditions that is, the team
will have to start revising their style altogether. If the game
does come about, folks around these parts will be able to
compare to some extent the type of local ball with the brand
ol bal that the Thunderbirds have been up against this year.
But there are other campus teams in action today. Tiie
rugger feats play a double bill today too. Varsity will be
def endlag their top rung on the rugby ladder when they meet
the AM-Blacks but the UBC squad will have a considerably
tougher game on their hands when they meet the Meralomas.
The Great Experiment Monday
Ihe big game hi the English rugger season comes on
Monday when the great experiment takes place with the
thirteen man team and unlimited substitution. Ihe results
of this game might mean a great deal to future battles.
Even the hoopla men go into action tonight when the
Thunderbirds make the hop to Chiliiwack for their first actual contest of the year. Last year when the 'Birds went up
to the Fraser Valley metropolis, the funds were given to the
gym fund. Now the boys are going to help out the Chiliiwack
funds in a return game.
Besides all this great array of battle, the soccer teams
will be in there fighting it out. The swimmers are making
the trip to Victoria to defend the Blue and Gold in the aqua
raoes. Ihe grass hockey squads are playing today and tiie
ice hockey squad will he playing tomorrow.
Lots Of Excitement
It all makes for a very interesting week-end for the
sport-minded lassies and laddies in our midst.
Just by the way, you know, the life of a sports editor has
it's moments. Most of them are exciting, some are amusing,
others are annoying. One of the latter occured on Thursday
when a letter addressed to the sports editor arrived.
It just isn't fair. Such a lovely letter ... but there was
no name. If the person who wrote same would be good
enough to drop into the pub and sign same, I'm just aching
to go into battle, verbal that is!!

VARSITY VS. ALL-BLACKS
WEEKEND RUGBY FEATURE
Campus Rugger squads face another full bill this weekend as UBC plays Meralomas at Brockton Point, and Varsity meets North Shore All-Blacks at Douglas Park. Weekend
feature will, be the thirteen man team game on Monday
afternoon. ————————
'BIRD HOOPMEN
PLAY VALLEY
SQUAD TONIGHT
Varsity Thunderbirds in thc
tliroes of one of the worst slump*
in their gridiron history, jog onto
t h e stadium t his afternoon
noon to trade talons with the
Wildcats from Linfield College ln
a last attempt to crash into the
win column before a home crowd
Qreg Kabat's Injury . depleted
football squad, currently wallowing in the trough of a wave thai
has produced four straight Conference defeats, is determined to
rise to th ecrest of a victory swell'
at the expense of the McMlnnville
cumpusmen.
The Wildcat pack  reached tht
metropolis last night, intending to
profit at the expense of the ill-
fated 'Birds. The Oregon eleven
is batting the proverbial .500, by
virtue of two wins, two losses, anc
one saw-off.
Linfield racked up victories ovei
the same College of Idaho crew
that chatised the Varsity gridders,
by a narrow margin of 14-13 count,
and over the Whitman Missionaries by a 200 shutout. However,
the Wildcats ended up on tht
shallow end of the count at the
cleats of the Williamette Bearcats and the Pacific University
eleven by 31-6 and 9-0 scores res
pectively.
College of Puget Sound held
the Wildcats to a 6-6 draw, tc
complete their even-steven record. The Puget Sound loggers
played host to the Thunderbirdi
last weekend and emergen jn the
long end of the count, 34-1.
The Kabatmen, however, are
swayed by the rather impressive
record of their guests, and although their backfield line combinations have been seriously ravaged by the injury bugbear, there
is still sufficient offensive powei
to make the contest a mighty uncomfortable one for the Wildcats
This afternoon at 2:00, the twice
defeated UBC squad will be out
for a win over the second plaice
"Lomas. Both teams have been
very successful in keeping in the
winning bracket, and although
they both dropped games last week,
fans are assured of a good game
if they care to travel to the environ
of Stanley Park.
Douglas Park will be the scene
of two games this afternoon as
both the 1st and second division
teams play. In tht Miller Cup race
the cellar dwelling North.Shore
All-Blacks face the undefeated
league leading Varsity fifteen. In

ROY  HAINES
. . . Varsity Rugby Mentor
a previous encounter the campui
players smothered the All-Blacks
aad tha odds again are against the
North Shore boys.
FROSH PLAY
Another campus team will be
seen in action at the same park
as the Frosh team meets in a second division tilt. Both games start
at 2:30 and will be played on adjoining fields.
Monday will see an all star aggregation of campus rugby players
as they meet a downtown team in
the first thirteen man team game
to be played in Brockton Bowl.
Playing under new rules in an
experiment designed to speed up
the game and to give the fans a
greater thiiiU, the game will feature a thirteen man team and general substitution. With fewer men
on the field at one time and with
the players allowed resting periods the game promises to be more
interesting than American grid.
LINE UPS
Line-ups released by Coach
Haines for Monday's game include
most of the stars of the present
rugby league.
The forward line consists of
Marshall Smith, Hart Crosby, Dave
Moon, Scott Kerr, Alex Carlyle,
Barry Morris, Harvey Allen, (Barney Kirby and Harry Cannon,
Scrum halfs will be Johnny Wheeler and iBuddy Lott.
Featured in the backfield will be
Ron Grant, Hilary Wotherspoon,
George Biddle, Ron Williams, Pete
Hobson, Bud Spiers, Jack Ailnour,
and McKee. Bill Dunbar will fill
the fullback slot.
FROSH  RUGGER
IN CLOSE LOSS
St. George's more experienced
rugger fifteen managed to edge
out a representation of UBC freshmen by a score of 6-3 on Thursday
afternoon. Jack Horton, speedy
three-quarter man, scored the
enly Frosh effort of the game.
Despite Thursday's loss, the
Frosh team have been showing
definite improvement at every
practice and look forward to
many victories in their coming
games.

■ With retaining a favor as their

play an exhibition match with a
representative team of Fraser Valley boys.
Last year when the 'Birds appeared m Chiliiwack, the lorol
team genojausly donated all the
gate receipts to the UBC gym f and.
And this year, the Ihunderbirds
have eagerly seised the opportunity
io repay the Valley boys for their
kindness by staging another casaba battle and turning the proceeds
over to the Chiliiwack civic gym
fund. Ihe object of their fund is
to provide some badly necdod

centre.
VISITING GRIDMEN—The Linfield football squad would appear to be no easy push-
over, that is if this picture of the visiting team is anything to go by. This is the .squad that
will be seen in action this afternoon when the 'Birdmen take to the gridiron with high hopes
of breaking into the win column at the expense of the Wildcats. The Linfield team has won
two, lost two, and tied one.
It's Up To Big Four Now
As.'Birds Accept Battle
The Thunderbird grid team has accepted the challenge
propoaed by a representative of the Big Four Canadian football loop to compete for the Seaforth Cup. The Cup is symbolic of Canadian football supremacy in B.C.
~"~"~""—™~"™—————— ^ Men's
Inter BHoopmen
Hit Win Column
The Inter B boys finally landed
in the win column Wednesday
night when they romped through
the Dunbar team to the tune of
41-34, in a gututo-curtain thriller
which was anything but one-sided.
In the ftifet stanzas, Varsity's defensive tactics were strong enough
to stem the smooth passing Dunbar advance, but as the game progressed, and the campus five
launched their own offensive, the
Hill kids couldn't seem to hold.
LAST FRAME COUNTS  •
Only once did Dunbar threaten
to take over. At three-quarter
time they trailed by only one point,
but the students made the final
frame count.
Louis Willis notched up a neat
14 points to lead the Varsity scorers, six of them from free shots.
With two losses and a win, the
Inter B's now plan to get on the
positive  side  of tiie  ledger—and
Sharpshooting Meralomas downed Varsity Inter A upperclassmen Thursday night in King Ed.
Gym, by a count of 37-30.
Led by Hugh Ryan, who garnered 19 points, the Meralomas
came back from Varsity's early
lead to down the students by 7
points. The West Point Grey melon tossers rolled up 6 points in the
first 3 minutes of the game, before the 'Lomas hit their stride.
Once they had captured the lead
they held it the whole way, despite the efforts of the hard fighting students.
Grass Hockeyists
In Initial Loss
Dropping their first game in the
City Grass Hockey League last
Saturday, Varsity matched only
one goal to the four of North
Shore players. Back in action for
the visitors were the Singh Bros,
who last year provided the power of the Indian Team. Ned Larsen scored Varsity's one point on
the Brockton Point grounds.
In the match against the Vancouver Club UBC had an even
game both halves but managed by
a dint of hard work to take thi
game 2-1. Les Bullen and Norm
Tupper produced the goals for the
University.
Athletic Directorate
gave tiie necessary consent at s
meeting held Thursday. Certain
conditions however were put forth
under which the game would be
played.
Among these conditions was the
important feature that the proceeds from the contest would have
to be donated to the Memorial
Gym Drive. "Hie game would have
to be played at the UBC Stadium
and the date set is Nov. 23.
10-YD. BLOCKING
The UBC squad would also want
the game to be played according
to the old Canadian rules whereby
10-yd. blocking would be in effect
The club emphasizes the fact
that they would be departing from
the policy which was established
at the beginning of the season
when it was decided that the team
would take part in Inter-Collegiate
contest only.
Whether or not the Big Four will
percept the conditions put forth by
the MAD is not as yet known but
the results should be forthcoming
over the weekend.
If the offer is accepted, the grid-
men will have to forego a little
more studying time in orde.* to
prep for the battle which would
necessitate changing their style to
the Canadian code.
Soccerites Play
North Van Squad
With the Mainland Cup Tie:
hoving into view, the V and D soccer squads will be putting forth
an extra effort in today's games
Varsity, the Blue and Gold's Senior squad, meets the North Van-v

five goals to their opponent, threv
and came out on the long end of
a score of 10-8.
In the first six minutes of play,
O'Brien and Wiles put the 'Birds
ahead with a goal apiece. Johnston and Reed tied the score for
the   Cubs  before    Andrew    gave
UBC a one goal lead at the em.
of the frame.

things up 5-5 at the opening of
the third session.

What's a zyzzle
to an Arrow
9
Zyzzle is the last word in the
dictionary. Tt means: to make a
spluttering sound.
Arrow Sports Shirts are the
last word in comfort. (Catch
on?) That's because they're comfortable, colorful, and long-
lasting.
So, brethren, no need to zyzzle
in an uncomfortable shirt! Get
your Arrow Sports Shirts at your nearest dealer. (If be
doesn't have the one you want, try htm again.)
