Veterans Note
Shortage of
Text Books
• A SERIOUS shortage of textbooks, particularly mathematics books, has been reported by returned war veterans taking the
short course which started last
Wednesday.
Since almost a week has elapsed
and some of the men have registered late, the situation has come
to be regarded as acute.
Badly needed are the math
books because of a shortage in the
University Book Store and the
downtown stores.
First year students who would
be willing to share their books
with these returned veterans until the men are able to get their
own are asked to inquire in the
AMS office  immediately.
Nabob Harmony
House Band Plays
At "Snow Frolic"
• THE NABOB "Harmony
House" Orchestra will
play at the Greek "Snow
Ball" at the Commodore
Cabaret January 25. This
orchestra, which has been
donated by Kelly-Douglas
Ltd., for the night of the ball
is made up of musicians from
several of Vancouver's best-
known bands and appears at
the Orpheum Theatre Monday, nights.
The ball committee feels very
fortunate in having arranged for
its services, Mary Frances Trumbull, committee chairman, stated
today.
Raffle tickets for the ball were
distributed yesterday by AMS office to the sororities and fraternities 'and may now be purchased
from any sorority or fraternity
member. First among the raffle
prizes is a fur coat donated by
R. J. Pop Ltd., Fur Studio, Granville and Fifteenth.
Sorority presidents are reminded that nominations for ball queen
must be given to Harry Pitts by
Friday.

Expect Airmen
Will Remuster
To Army Corps
• DISCHARGES from the UAS
will probably have to remuster to the COTC, Squadron Leader J. A. Harris told the Ubyssey
Monday.
"It will take quite a while to
get the men discharged," he sair,
"but after that, since they must
take military training while attending univedsity, and since the
UNTD certanly can't take them
on in the middle of a course, the
COTC seems to be the only out."
Harris stated that it would probably rest with the local Military
Committee as to Just what the disposition will be, as they have received no word from Ottawa on
this point.
"We have only been told to disband," he said, "and that will
take quite a while."
UBC corps of the UAS paraded
for the last time Saturday when
they were inspected by Dr. N. A.
M. MacKenzie, president of UBC.
The 250 airmen marched past the
reviewing stand and the president
took the salute.
COTC cadets gave three cheers
for the airmen, and Dr. MacKenzie congratulated the corps on its
work and extended sympathy at
their having to disband.
The airmen will hold a final
banquet in the Hotel Georgia
Wednesday night. Arnold Johnson is in charge of arrangements.
• ALL REPORTERS
and editors are required to attend a meeting of
the publications board in
the publications office today at noon.

New Technique
With Plasma
Saving Lives
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (UP)-
The speed with which blood plasma is administered to a critically
wounded serviceman often is the
difference between life and death,
Lt. Allan A. Fisher, U.S. Navy
surgeon assigned to the Schenectady Red Cross blood donor center,
says a new technique has been developed in combat areas whereby
the plasma is administered in four
places in a man's body simultaneously, in order to get it into him
quickly enough to save his life.
"One bottle of plasma is fed into
each arm and one bottle is fed to
the patient in each leg," Fisher
said.
"I know of many traumatic
shock cases where if plasma is
administered within 45 minutes a
life is saved. An hour would be
too late," he added.
As many as 10 pints have been
required to save the life of one
man, the Mediterranean theater
veteran and Purple Heart wearer
says.
"Cases using two and three pints
are not uncommon," he explained.
"As a matter of fact, because of
this, now packages are being made
up with full quarts of plasma because a pint is so seldom enough."
NFCUS Needs

. . . . THEUBYSSEY
Conference Leaders
JANUARY 9, 1945
Now that the various holiday conferences are over and the results brought
before the students, one incidental fact
stands out. UBC has two able conference
attenders in Mr.<Bibbs and Mr. Creighton.
The findings of the recent National Federation of Canadian University Students'
conference are listed in the Ubyssey today,
issued by Mr. Bibbs on his return. The
findings and decisions of the conference are
set before the students so that they may
judge the actions and decisions of their
representatives.
Aside from the actual business of the
conference. Bibbs and Creighton are to be
congratulated on their performance. They
arrived at the conference with a schedule
drawn up which was accepted and allowed
the business to be conducted smoothly.
Bibbs was elected wartime chairman of the
NFCUS and Creighton was urged to accept
the position of secretary-treasurer. Why he
declined remains to be seen, but perhaps he
considered that UBC had already taken a
leading role in the Federation.
when the results of this conference have
been publicized, it is up to the leaders of
the NFCUS to take action to see that students are fully informed of other proceedings
and progress. What students want is action.
They will not be satisfied with a static
organization.
Canadian university students need
some unifying body to integrate their
thoughts and actions, and it is hoped the
NFCUS will take over this job. If Canada
is to concentrate on national unity, then university students will be required to know
more about their contemporaries in other
provinces. The great service of the NFCUS
will be to promote the knowledge that is the
basis of unity. The conference in Ontario
accomplished much along this line, and now
its job will be to progress in the future from
the foundation laid in 1944.
Where Was the Kitchen Sink?
The old saying about throwing everything but the kitchen sink applies very nicely to the executives in charge of Arts Week,
which should have started Monday, barring
unforseen accidents.
During the period in which Arts Week
was organized the Arts Executives were repeatedly set back by previous committments
of council, which could not be changed.
Plans for several highlights of the week had
to be withdrawn or modified. The Arts executives escaped the kitchen sink, but probably if they had tried to arrange for refreshments in the Brock previous committments
would have been revealed and the Brock
"Kitchen would have joined the list of articles thrown.
, Throughout the constant revision of
plans, the Artsmen implored everyone to
clear the decks to make way for a function
of the largest faculty at UBC. The decks
were cleared in a fashion, and even when it
appeared impossible at first. Arts Week was
given lengthy consideration by Council who
leaned over backwards to accommodate the .
late-comers. If Council had leaned any more
than it did, the back of a well-planned and
sensible social calendar would have been
broken.
Arts executives nearly threw Arts
Week in the waste basket several times
when the road looked impassable, but the
main thing now is that their brain child is
a reality. From here in it is the responsibility of the individual Arts student to support Arts Week. The program is sensible,
well-planned, and entertaining. It is a challenge to the much-vaunted Arts spirit we
have been hearing so much about lately.
To the Arts executives we would like
to give a gentle admonition that "T'was ever
thus" or say that "Life's like that" and then
ask them to work like trojans for one more
week to ensure that Arts Week is guided
properly and not thrown carelessly before
the students.
As this is written, the threatened street
car strike is still in the "Is you is or is you
ain't?" stage. We would like to have seen
more definite plans for the university issued
in the hectic week-end preceding the strike
deadline, so that students would know
whether UBC would close or carry on as
usual with those who could attend.
Ottawa calling
A CANADIAN UNIVERSITY PRESS FEATURE
by Neil MacDonald
•....THE BY-ELECTION in Grey North,
called for February 5, is giving the political prophets of Ottawa some headaches.
General McNaughton, the Minister of National Defence, is the Liberal candidate,
nominated when the Liberal member resigned to open a seat for the General, who
has to find himself a seat in order to remain
a Cabinet Minister. McNaughton is opposed
by a strong Progressive Conservative candidate, who retired from the mayoralty of
Owen Sound in order to enter the Federal
field. The Cooperative Commonwealth Federation has also indicated its intention of
running a candidate.
One of the questions which is bothering
the political prophets is how the Liberals are
going to develop any campaign against Mr.
Case, except to say-that Liberals should vote
for the Liberal candidate and that General
McNaughton's election is necessary for the
efficient prosecution of the war. In the last
two municipal elections, Garfield Case has
been made mayor by acclamation, and it is
conceded that, by leaving the federal field,
he could have run as a last minute candidate
and defeated anyone else.
Somebody or other (and it may well
have been from some semi-official source)
suggested that the Progressive Conserva
tives and CCF'rs might allow General McNaughton to receive an acclamation: the suggestion, however, was quashed by both opposition sources, and the General is going
to have to fight.
In fact, some sources have gone so far
as to say that the Liberals have unofficially
become dubious about carrying Grey North.
They point out that this constituency had a
"Yes" vote on the plebiscite of almost 10
to 1, and that its enlistment record is very
high. It is almost impossible to determine
at this date which of the three parties will
benefit by the three-way split of the vote.
If the government sees that it cannot
win Grey North, there will be two choices
open to it: it can sacrifice General McNaughton, perhaps replacing him by Colonel Ralston, or it can forestall the February 5 by-
election by requesting the dissolution of
parliament. A few more months of life might
mean a great deal.
This writer's guess, for what it is worth,
is that no one has yet decided what course
is to be followed. The Prime Minister has
a habit of surprising everyone, including his
intimates, with a sudden decision, but that
sudden decision is the expedient outgrowth
of a number of alternative possibilities, all
of which have been developed up until the
final moment of decision.
TOPEKA, Kan. (UP)-Cattle-
rustlin' days have returned to tha
plains of Kansas. R, E. Adams of
Maplehill, Kan., has offered a
?2,500 reward for information leading to conviction of rustlers who
herded 81 head of cattle from his
Meady County ranch recently. Of
the cattle, 40 cows have been recovered from a canyon where they
were hidden. The 41 missing head
are calves weighing about 475
pounds each.
EVANSVILLE,   Ind,   (UP)-The
four members of the Compton family are all connected with keeping   P-47s   going.    Sgt.   Virgil   B.
Compton is a member of a repair
crew for the planes in the Dutch
East   Indies,   while   his  wife   inspects the planes' wings in a war
plant at home. His two brothers-
in-law help produce the planes at
the same plant.
SEATTLE (UP)—In the South
Pacific, GIs really "cut the cards,"
according to PFC. Jack Mecartea
of Seattle, The critical scarcity of
playing cards is remedied easily
by cutting the decks in half, As
each card has duplicate markings
at each end, one deck becomes
two.
TOPEKA, Kan. (UP)-No, mice
didn't drink the gasoline, but they
did chek up 1,200 gallons of gasoline stamps, B. J. Hopkins told an
OPA commissioner here recently,
in explaining his inability to account for a shortage. But Hopkns,
not the guilty mice, got the suspension order from Commissioner
J. Donald Gunn, ordering him to
suspend gasoline sales for 60 days,
and staying all but 14 days.

WEST COAST INDUSTRIES
'■Tmo-aV     LOOK TO CHINA MARKET
• ALL LAST week there was
something in the air. Just
what it was my still exam fogged
mind was unable to fathom, but
it was something.
Then it struck me. Of course.
The beastly electric was taking a
holiday.
"So what,
everyone needs
a holiday once
in a while.
What do I
care?"
"You ierk,
you'll have to
walk."
"Walk, what's
walk?"
"Oh    you
know. What do
you  do  to  get
from   the   bus
stop to the pub in the morning?"
"Dunno, I never wake up until
after 10:30."
"Well, what do you do when
you go from the pub to your lectures?"
OUT-TALKS HIMSELF
"I don't."
"Well  then,   what   do  you   do
when you take your girl home?"
"None of your darn business."
"Okay, I quit, go look it up in
the dictionary."
So, feeling very proud of the
way I had out-talked my inner
self, I wafted myself to the nearest dictionary, which is on the
desk in front of me.
After half an hour of browsing,
plus twenty minutes of philosophical contemplation, and a few
quick daydreams on the side, I
arrived at several highly general
conclusions.
Walking, I decided, Is done
with the feet. It's use is as a
way to transport the body from
one place to another.
I  can  think  of several  better
ways.
Seeing that this new mode of
transportation was to be forced
on me, and that my feet would
have to do most of the heavy hauling, I decided to investigate the
condition of these suddenly important, though always prominent,
parte of my equipment.
HE TRIES WALKING
Now, I decided, would be the
time to start wearing shoes. It
was getting kind of hard to keep
my feet shlned up to navy standards anyhow.
"The thing to do now," I said
to myself," Is to try walking, just
to see what will happen."
"Fine",   I   answered,   "drop
around next month, and we'll
talk the matter over."
"Look here, you drip, the strike
is tomorrow, see. You start walking right now."
"But I don't know how," I objected.
"Well go out and ask someone,"
I snapped right back.
"Got you there," I jeered triumphantly, "I'd have to walk to do
that, wouldn't I?"
Outsmarted again, my Inner self
resorted to a disgustingly commanding tone. "Get up and walk,"
I said.
"But," I pleaded, " think of all
I've done for you, think of the
time I've wasted keeping you happy when no one else would talk
to you."
NO BUTS, PLIZ
"No buts from you, you know
darn well you don't smoke," I
barked back, "you're walking right
now, and what's more, you're
walking all the way home, just
to prove you could do it."
I knew that voice, it was the
same one that tells me to get up
in the morning, so I got up, and
believe it or not, I walked.
I staggered out of the pub and
turned homeward.
Soon I was tearing down the
street in grand style, but just
as I was hitting my stride a
two-year-old whlzrcd past me.
He turned around and walked
backward, going very fist. "Nya-
oaaah," he said.
Before I could answer he had
passed beytond hailing distance.
"Probably training for a marathon," I consoled myself, as he
vanished over the horizon.
HE LICKS TURTLES
The first half hour was torture,
but after that everything settled
clown to a nice comfortable numbness, like the middle of an English lecture, and I guess I dozed
off.
When 1 woke up somebody had
erected   a   grandstand,   and   was
selling hot dogs to the spectators.
I   couldn't   figure   what   the
shouting   was   about,   until   I
noticed that one of the turtles
was just about to cross the finish line. I licked both the snails
• SAN FRANCISCO, Jan 9~(BUP)—The China-America
Council of Commerce and Industry has expanded the
scope of its operations on the West coast in order to plan
better for rehabilitation and development of the industries
of China—the Pacific Coast's "new frontier".
With China expected to
play a major part in the operations of West Coast industries after the war, the council has opened new offices in
Seattle and Portland and reorganized and enlarged the
San Francisco office in order
to cope with the broader demands being met.
Some of the most prominent industrialists on the West Coast are
taking an active part in the work
of the council.
SEE RECONVERSION AIDED
West coast leaders see in the
China market an important contribution to the solution of the
critical reconversion pro b 1 e m s
which will confront the Pacific
coast aircraft, shipbuilding and industrial equipment of almost all
kinds, a great variety of other
manufactured goods and raw materials and foodstuffs such as lumber, wheat and flour. Shipments
to and from China are expected
to provide a large volume of bulk
cargoes for the Pacific Coast merchant marine.
The habor facilities of San
Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and
other ports, as well as local service
industries — such as stevedoring,
warehouses, land and river trans
port—are also expected to benefit
greatly from the trade, council
spokesmen report.
COMMITTEES IN CITIES
Among West Coast business leaders actively supporting the program of the China-America council are Henry D. Collier, president
Standard Oil Co. of California,
and Charles Kendrick, president
Schlage Lock Co., chairman and
vice-chairman respectively of the
San Francisco committee.
The Seattle committee Is headed
by John Philip Herber, president
of Grays Harbor Exportation Co.,
Inc., who also is in charge of the
foreign trade work of Washington's)
postwar planning committee.
In Portland the committee is
headed by Paul B. McKee, president of Portland Gas and Coke Co.,
John C. Campbell, vice president
of Wilcox-Hayes Co., is vice chairman of the Portland committee.
A special organization of American businessmen is needed to
serve as a guide and clearing house

"Hey buddy," a voice yelled
from the bleachers, "wise yourself up, they're making those
wooden legs with joints in them
now."
"Sadist," I snapped, "I'm coming right over and push those

But before I could get to him
darkness fell, so I turned homeward again.

Just as the clock struck six, I
hobbled up to the door, and cautiously inserted my key in the

"Let me smell your breath,"
half the family descended on me.
"Let's see your handkerchief,"
commanded the other half.
About the time the cross-examination was over it was time to
start for Varsity again, so I stumbled down to the basement, and

• NEW HAVEN, Conn.-ln a
United Press release from New
Haven, Yale President Charles
Seymour, arch-enemy of subsidized college athletics, today visualized "serious danger of competitive recruiting" with the return
of servicemen to the campus, "many of them fine athletes and with
their main expenses paid by the
Government."
"I believe," he said in his annual report to the alumni, "that
varsity sports in a wide variety
of fields, when properly conducted,
are of infinite value to our students and to the life of the uni- •
versity. Their value, however,
can easily be destroyed If by excess of competitive interest the
sport becomes for the student the
main object of college life, or if
the college, in order to attract
spectators through the brilliance
of its players, makes a practice of
special recruiting of athletes.
WANTS GOOD TEAMS
"At Yale we want to be represented by good teams but above
all we want our teams to be truly
representative of the whole student body and not imported for
the particular purpose of winning
games."
The Yale president pointed out
that "other institutions feel exactly as we do.
"It is important, in my opinion,
that these colleges set the tone
and pace of future intercollegiate
athletics by agreeing among themselves as to certain principles and
procedures that will cover such
problems as recruiting, subsidies,
eligibility, schedules and athletic
expenditures.
Dr. Seymour found that with the
university participating in the
Navy V-12 training program, athletics have been "of great Importance in, the maintenance of student morale under difficult conditions."
"From the Navy command as
well as from the deans comes clear
evidence of our wisdom In keeping
up a schedule of varsity contests
just so far as conditions permit."

Canadian Problems
• RE-ESTABLISHMENT of the National Federation of
Canadian University Students (NFCUS) as an "active
organization uniting Canadian students" was the major work
of representatives from 16 student bodies who met in London,
Ontario, December 27, 28, 29.
UBC was represented at the Conference by Dick Bibbs,
president of the AMS, and Ken Creighton, treasurer. Bibbs
was elected wartime chairman of the NFCUS.
Student government compared favourably with that of
other Canadian Universities, especially in the degree of responsibility, Bibbs told the Ubyssey on his return.     ,
Following is a report of the conference issued by Bibbs:
"The first day of the conference was taken up with the
general discussion of student government problems and
an exchange of information on the student activities on various campi. Committees were also set up to report to the
conference on Canadian educational problems, military
training, National Selective Service regulations with respect
to students, and the framing of a new constitution or possible
amendments to the old one.
"After these committees met on Friday morning, the
reports were represented on Friday afternoon and Saturday.
Saturday morning it was decided to retain the present officers
of the Federation who had been elected at the last meeting
held in December, 1939.
Set Up Wartime Committee
"It was, however, agreed that a wartime committee
would be set up to act in the absence of those officers who
are now on service. A wartime chairman was chosen, Mr.
Richard Bibbs, from the University of British Columbia, and
a vice-chairman, Mr. Marcellin Tremblay, from Laval University, Mr. Robert Ellis from Saskatchewan, Mr. Jack Pye
from McGill, and Mr. Haldane Reynolds from Acadia. The
post of secretary-treasurer remains open, though the conference strongly urged that Mr. Kenneth Creighton have
this post.
"Resolution adopted from the conference include the
following arising out of the committee reports:
"The committee on National Unity urged the Federation
be extended to include universities not now members. They
recommended the four major Inter-university debating organizations be united with debates carried over the radio.
They recommended that all matters of national importance
to students .whether of political nature or not, should be
discussed at the Federation conference, but further recommended that resolutions arising from the discussions be
adopted only if the Federation was unanimous in agreement.
The committee also recommended that one's year's study
of Canadian history at university or college level should be
made a requisite for any liberal arts degree, and that bi-
lingualism be strongly encouraged at normal schools in order
to ensure an effective understanding of Canadian history
by those responsible for such instruction in the lower grade
schools.
Encourages Bi-Lingualism
"The committee on military education outlined the .training recommendations in force and commended the government, on making those requirements standard to each campus
during the past year. The suggestion was made that the
universities might investigate the possibility of using returned men as instructors.
"The committee expressed approval of the way in which
National Selective Service has directed students into summer
employment and into the services or industry after graduation and recommended that some form of National Selective
Service be continued for the immediate post-war years.
"The committee considering veterans recommended that
veteran students wishing to study courses which are not
available in Canada should be given the opportunity to go
to other countries and still receive their benefits. The committee also recommended that standing committees be established on campi with representation from the Faculty, Student Body, Veteran's Affairs Officer, and the veterans themselves to consider problems, and also recommend that the
returning men be given every opportunity in the regular
student activities.
"Among the general resolutions passed by the Conference
was one giving the officers of the Federation authority to
negotiate with the National Council of Students of the Universities of England and Wales concerning the establishment
of a university organization embracing the British Commonwealth of Nations."
Bibbs said that if the war was over by next December
the NFCUS would meet again then.

Automatic Pilot
Outflies Human
SPECIAL TO THE UBYSSEY
• SUPERIORITY of a robot pi-
lot over a human pilot in hold,
ing a plane on its course and in
correcting for deviations from
straight and level flight has been
demonstrated by aviation engineers of General Electric.
Using a hook-up of an automatic
pilot with a Link trainer, they
showed that in a long, straight-
line flight it will not deviate from
its set course more than one-half
of one degree and that it will correct the plane's attitude, when it
is off-line, more quickly and accurately than a human pilot.
The O-E automatic pilot employed in the test is being used
widely on Navy torpedo bombers.
Its function is to provide refiel
for the human pilot by taking over the controls and maintaining
a course he sets. In doing so, it
relieve him of the physical duty
of controlling the flight and will
hold the airplane on a steadier
course than he can by hand.
The trainer waa used in the
demonstration to simulate the
stormy, unstabllized conditions a
pilot might meet in a plane. Sim-
lar types are used in training fliers. They throw him into spins,
dives and other dangerous attitudes, challenging him to bring
the ship back to an even keel.

• VERY FEW students realize
the amount of work that goes
on in such a small group as the
MAD. The MAD, or Men's Athletic Directorate, is a compact
governing body which does just
what its title implies—it directs
athletics here en the campus.
This body
meets every
Friday morning
at 10:30 to discuss and review
the various
problems which
arise In the field
of sports on our
growing c a m-
pus. But their
duties do not
end there. They
work throughout the week to
meet these problems and keep
sports humming at UBC.
One of the greatest examples of
the MAD was the Oregon-UBC
basketball series held in the campus gym at the close of exams a
short month ago. Few student*
realize that MAD members sacrificed much valuable time during
exams in order to make the series
a success.
But that is just one example.
A more difficult task has arisen
over the weekend.   With the
Whidby Island basketball team
coming  next  Saturday   night,
the MAD has only a week to
make all the necessary arrangements for the game.
And  besides  these  larger  projects, the directorate is constantly
hampered    by    petty    problems,
which, though small, are Important In the long rim.
The MAD is headed by George
Rush, who is doing a fine job
this year as Men's Athletic Representative. Jack McKercher, of
rugger fame, is an efficient secretary, and Dr. Frank Dickson and
Mr. Maury Van Vliet are the faculty representatives.
CUFF GUFF—We had quite a

floor seemed to put new life into
the team which managed to hold
on through the first three quarters.
The Chiefs were finding the
bucket easily in the first quarter
and even managed to outscore the
'Birds to lead 14-12 going into the
second canto. The more experienced Seniors managed to come
back with some of their better play
in this frame to outscore the opposition 21-14, giving them a five-
point bulge at the half,
Both teams came back a determined lot and as a result the teams
matched basket for basket through
the third frame. The edge went
to the 'Birds who took an 8-7
count.
In the flnal quarter however,
the 'Birds came to Ufe and set
the Chiefs back as they out-
scored the youngsters 19-10. It
was a greatly improved squad
of Chiefs that managed to hold
on to the 'Birds who took their
eighth victory of the season.
Freshman Reg Clarkson played a
great game for the winners, coming
through with 11 yoints. Ron Weber
had a like number.   The big gun
for the losers was Herb Capozzi
who   netted   19   counters.    Gerry
Stevenson had 11 and Bruce Yorke
who found himself quite the centre
of interest as far as checking went,
potted nine.

bench   nursing   injured   feet.

ankle at Kelowna was out as
was Bob Haas, star forward,

•   COED BASKETBALL teams are jinxed! An evil curse
has the two gals teams under it's power, and 1944 has
gone out of the running and left the coeds bemoaning the old
year with a long line of defeats.
I hope the girl hoopsters used the Xmas and New Year
turkey wishbones to wish for a victorious series of games
this season.
Spirit is a good word to bring in now that the holiday
spirit display is over, and the students of UBC could show
they know the meaning of the word by turning out to watch
the gals play ball.
Basketball is a fine game to watch when the girls get
on the floor, in fact it's better than a show. It's fast, furious,
and all the other adjectives in Webster's.
Hoopla is a real athletic game as long as you remain a
spectator. I learned way back in '44 never to cover a basketball game for the press when women are playing, if you
value your life. Of course, if you have a heavy insurance
policy and you haven't enough money to pay the Spring fees
you could collect, or at least your next of kin could collect.
UBC will be represented again this session in the Cagette
League by two coed teams: the Senior B's and the Inter
A's—the waddling ducks, as "deebee" calls Varsity women
hoopsters. But waddle or not, the gals play a good game of
ball and with the new year ahead and the long holiday rest
behind, the girls will be in fine shape.
The point of this long winded description of the coed
basketball players is the fact that spectators, to cheer the girls
on to victory, would be welcomed at the scene of their
games when the gals .waddle onto the floor.
Varsity spirit would aid the girls during their games
and spirit is what seems to be lacking; not among the players
but among the student body. Students evidently feel that
Cagette teams would feel embarassed if they played before
a crowd of more than three people.
For that matter, the point is still undecided since the
spectators from UBC at recent games have fallen considerably short of three. That old saying about a woman looking
her best before a crowd applies just as well to basketball
players as any other form of the feminine sex.
half which ended in favor of Oregon, 24-19.
Meantime, In Seattle, the
hard-hitting Washington Huskies showed no mercy in a
second half drive that crumbled up the Oregon State Beaver
defense, after the latter lost
most of their tall key players,
one through flu and two more
ruled off for fouls.
After a slow opening half which
ended with Washington ahead 18-
14, Huskies turned on the power,
at one point stretching their lead
to  28-14.   O.S.C.  got  eight  points
in the second half to lose, 42-22.
Meantime by way of getting
ready for their opening game
In the Conference, against the
Webfeet, Washington State College proved its mettle in a non-
Conference  clash   at  Pullman
when they staged the greatest
second half comeback In a decade in Pullman gyms to beat
Eastern   Washington   56-49   ln
overtime.
The losers were ahead 31-14 at
the half and the score was tied
44-all at the end of the regulation
time. Then, after running up 30
points in the second, while holding
Eastern to 13, every Cougar regular scored to gain the needed winning points.
Detroit Wins Pair;
Climbs To Top
• DETROIT Red Wings finally
climbed to the top of the NHL
heap alongside the Montreal Canadiens over the weekend. While
the flying Frenchmen were smothering Chicago 10-1 on Saturday,
Jack Adams' crew were taking the
measure of Toronto 5-2. On Sunday the Red Wings continued their
onrush, bumping Boston 8-4.
Rangers and Chicago played a
rough and tough contest at New
York which ended in a scoreless
tie.
Ken Mosdell and Fern Gouthier
stole the show from the starry
Blake-Lach-Richard trio at Montreal to lead the 10-goal onslaught
against Mike Karakas' net with 3
and 2 goals respectively.
Big Earl Seibert started off in
great style for his new team. The
perennial all-star defenceman
sparked the Red Wing attack in
both weekend victories. Rookie
Tony Bukovich was the only player to tally more than once in these
encounters. Working as a replacement for the injured Carl
Liscombe, the newcomer fitted in
well on the Detroit front line
whipping home two nice counters.

Soccer XI Absorbs
Heavy Trouncing
• VARSITY'S SOCCER eleven
turned out in high spirits for
their first game ot the new year
only to be downed 6-1 by St Saviours Saturday on the upper playing field. Varsity started the game
with a rush, and just missed scoring a goal. Retaliating a score by
the Tigers' young Al Sayers, the
'Birds scored on a cross from Earl
Woods to Don Yip.
A major casualty occurred when
Varsity's new star, Hedley Rowell
sprained an ankle at half time.
After that the 'Birds' luck began
to go downhill until in the last
few minutes the Tigers packed
the UBC goal area and fired a-
way to defeat the Varsity squad
6-1.
Don Gilbert brought out his full
team and the boys evidently enjoyed the game since there was a
friendly spirit interspersed among
the kicked shins and flying elbows.
On the whole, the game was fairly
even, but in the final period the
more experienced St. Saviors
passed perfectly to fully capitalize on their chances and take the
victory easily.
