University men will assume the role of shrinking violets when
the girls take the offensive at the Co-ed Leap Year Ball on Thursday, February 29.
Sports costumes will be the vogue, but nevertheless the co-eds
will thoughtfully provide corsages for their dates. The corsages
will be both beautiful and edible, and will be a comfort to the
wallflowers, who can munch on carrots and cabbages instead of
staring mournfully at their feet.
U. S. Foreign
Policy Discussed
At Symposium
Washington  Varsity
Debaters Favour
U.B.C. students received a glimpse
of what American collegians think of
the war when Harry Henrich-en and
Tom Nllsen, members of the Unlveralty of Washington's visiting debating team, met Austin Delany and Leonard Korsch In a symposium an American Foreign Policy In the Brock
Building Friday.
Completing a heavy two-day speaking schedule In Vancouver, the Americans introduced a new form of
debating to UB.C. In the symposium.
It ls more Informal than the ordinary
debate, allowing for questions and
discussion by the audience.
Nllsen opened the symposium by
presenting what he believed to be
America's view of the war and Its
causes. He said that Americans ask
themselves this question: "Oan we
preserve democracy by entering or
by staying out of this conflict?"
Korsch  outlined  America's foreign
policy from the time of the Monro
Doctrine, claiming that that country
cannot    be    independent    politically
when she la not so economically. He
aald she should co-operate with the
Allies financially and participate In
making the peace after the war.
"Self-Interest was the chief motive behind England and France's
declaration   of   war,"    Henrlchson
repUed.   "Why   hasn't   the   United
States the same right? Why can't
she stay at home and attend to her
own  self-interests?"
After   Delany   had   evaluated   the
arguments  of  both sides, Chairman
Bob Bonner opened the meeting to
questions   and   to   further   discussion
from the floor.
Besides Henrlchson and Nllsen, the
Washington delegation included Professor Albert L. Pranke, director of
Debating and Public Speaking in the
Seattle University, and Carl Robertson, Vancouver resident now attending Washington.

The girls will call for the boys,
help them on with their coats, walk
cn the outside on the sidewalk, light
their cigarettes, and attend to all
the other little details whioh will
make the evening more pleasant tor
the  men.
The party will be held In the
Brock Building, where the students
will dance to the musio of Mart Kenney's orchestra. Patrons for the
evening will be Dr. and Mrs. McKechnie, President Kllnck, Dean and
Mra. Finlayson, Dean and Mra. Clement, Dean Bollert, Miaa Oray and
Miaa Moore.

The Co-ed Ball Is under the direction
of the Women's Undergraduate Exeoutive, conalating of Biddy McNeill,
Dorothy Hlrd, Ray Adamaon, Pauline Scott and Janet Fleck.
Traditional rolea will be reveraed
as girls ask boya for the dances. A
stag line, strictly feminine, will keep
the party from becoming dull.
The Co-ed Ball has been an annual
affair since 1928. The Arst Co-ed,
overwhelmed by its official title of
"The 'Women's Undergraduate Leap
Year Fancy Dress Ball" was held in
the Oeorgian Room of the Hudson's
Bay. This waa a costume party, some
what like the modern Ht-JInka.
In 1929 and the following years,
aporta oostumes have been In style.
That year men got their white flannels and plus foura out ot the moth
balls, while the glrla, for reaaons
beat known to themaelvea, wore
bereta with their aporta dreaaea.
Moat former parties have been program dancea, but this custom is not
being followed this year.

at Open House on, Saturday to see
for themselves what their sons and
daughters are doing on the oampua.

Free Show!
Twenty-three U.B.C. students may stxidy free of charge at
any other Canadian University with the exception of the University of Laval under the N.F.C.U.S. Exchange Scholarship Scheme
it was announced last week. To be eligible the applicants must
have completed their second year and must guarantee to return
the following year to U.B.C. to com- *
plete work for his or her degree.
Applications must be in at Council
Office by March 31. A selection committee consisting of John Pearson,
president of the A.M.S., and the
Dean of the Faculty in which the
candidate Is registered will choose
the successful  scholars.
The Exchange Plan which has
been in effect for eight years is the
major undertaking of the N.F.C.U.S.
It has been heartily endorsed by
Canadian students who have benefited through it and also by presidents of moat of the Canadian Universities.
Under this scheme these specially
selected students may take one
year's university work at another
university in any faculty with the
exception of Dentristry and Medicine in the Universities of Quebec
and Ontario.
It is hoped that these Federation
scholarships will to aome extent act
aa a check on the tendency of Canadian studenta to become restricted
in academic and geographical outlook.
The Plan permits specialisation
which might otherwise be unobtainable. In most cases the saving in
tuition fees will more than balance
the transportation  charges involved.
Each university may select for attendance under the Exchange Plan
a number of students not exceeding
one per cent of the total student

Council   Calls   Parley   With   Musicians
To Settle Union Ban Of Clark9s Orchestra
With the menace of trade unionism1
looming large against the academic
horizon, President John Pearson this
week told the Ubyssey that the students' council had arranged a special
meeting with the Vancouver Musi-
clans' Union for Tuesday afternoon.
Pearson voiced the hope that Tuesday's parley would clear up difficulties with the union which resulted in
Gil Clark's Varsity dance orchestra
being banned from playing at the
Newman Club dance on February 6.
The student council president labelled the council's position at that
time as "a tough spot". Because of
the proximity of the Junior Prom,
which might be crippled financially
by a withdrawal of union support,
they had no choice, he said, but to
ask  Clork't   orchestra  not   to play.
At   the   aame   time   Pearson   believed   that  Clark's  protest against
the council's action was unjustified,
for  the  orchestra  had  been  reimbursed by the A.M.S. to the amount
which would have been paid them
by the Newman Club.
If the council had known that Fred
Holllngsworth's       orchestra,       which
played for the B.C.T.F. dance a week
later, was  a  non-union organization,
they would have been forced to take
the same action, Pearson maintained.
"We   knew   nothing   about   it,"   he
declared. "Apparently the union didn't either."
Fear that the Junior Prom would
fall, should the union make good its
threat, was heightened when Ole
Olson's orchestra refused to come out
to the campus for the Prom pep meet
if the Varsity orchestra were to play
for the dance.
"We were in a tough spot," Pearson told the Ubyssey. "With so
many other social functions In the
offing, the council was afraid that
the Prom would be a financial failure. That Is something the Alma
Mater Society could not afford. In
the light of the union's attitude
we were forced to ask' Clark's
Clark told the Ubyssey that his
orchestra would play for a tea dance
In the Brock Building during Open
House, but intimated that his resignation would follow shortly after, and
the band would break up, unless
Tuesday's meeting produced a change
In the Union's attitude.
Wheat Travels
To World Markets
In    Fulfilment
First in a series of free noon-hour
movies to be presented by the Film
Society, will be shown in the Auditorium at 13:30 today, and will feature two eduoatlonal films on the
Canadian  wheat  Industry.
"Fulfilment" ls the name of the
first picture, dealing with the relationship between the Canadian wheat
farmer and the world business man.
Produced In Oreat Britain, this film
traoes the life of "Ootober" wheat
from Its sowing in the Canadian
prairies to its destination In the
flour mills of the Empire.
Second feature on the program,
"Heritage", deals with the recent
drought areas of the Canadian West.
The wasteful methods used in the
past and the new hope for the future
through supervised rehabilitation of
the dry areas are piotorially described in this film.

"What ls the best way to preserve
democracy in U.S.A. and Canada?"
will be the topic of a symposium debate between the Women's Public
Speaking Club and a team from the
University of Washington, on Thursday, Feb. 29, at 12.30.
Barbara White and Elspeth Munro
will represent the Women's Public
Speaking Club.
On Saturday, March 2, all
lectures will be cancelled for
Third, Fourth and Fifth year
students, and lectures for First
and Second Year students will

Vancouver Institute
i Climaxing 25 years of active service to the industries of this
province, U.B.C. scientists will throw open their laboratory doors
to layman nnd expert alike next Saturday, in an effort to demonstrate the practical work done on this campus.
The record of the "Open House" display, flrBt conceived in
1933 as a method of letting cltisens si  ■ ————..—_
know the activities of the university, will be carried on again this
year, under the capable management of Ray Jones, Applied Science
Science in Urn most practical and
palatable form, will feature the 1940
Most sensational exhibit from the
standpoint of the layman will be the
electrical laboratories, where amazed cltisens will And all manner of
wonderful  things.
Here   their   voices   will   actually
be    seen    upon    an    oscillograph
screen,   and   will   be  transmitted
upon a beam of light.    Here, too,
they will And a small train, which
will  advance,  stop  dead,  or  back
up,   dependent  entirely    upon   the
Instructions given by the speaker.
A more technical exhibit will be
given in the chemical laboratories,
which will feature research work
undertaken by advanced students
during the past two years. Particularly appropriate in wartime Is a
display of recent research upon petroleum products. Technically known
aa decalln analyala, thla work has
great application in the study of
aeroplane fuel and machine lubrication.
Motto of the bacteriology display,
"An ounce of prevention Is worth a
pound of cure," will be graphically
portrayed by pathological specimens
showing the effect of pneumonia,
T.B. typhoid, and venereal infection.
Antiseptics—their use and useless-
neaa—referring particularly to popular remediea, will be aubject of an
exhibit being arranged by Florence
Jamieson, aaalated by June Oerow
and   Jackie   MacLeod.
The T.B. exhibit, which ia being
planned by Marjorie Todd, will be
of apecial Intereat becauae of the
high incidence of thla dread dlaeaae
in  Vancouver,
In co-operation with the Venereal
Disease Clinic of the Oreater Vancouver Health League, a great deal
of interesting material on social
hygiene will be displayed by Archie
Cowan, assisted by Clarence Fulton,
and Val  Bjarnason.
As usual, cltisens will be a mite
sceptical about the microscope room.
Somehow, they Just can't believe that
the rat-sized brutes which swarm
across the screen are to be found in
the very water they drink.
The    most    interesting    exhibit    ln
the Department of Mining and Metallurgy   will   be   a   model   tunnel   or
"drift,"    constructed   by    the   fourth
year  mining  students,  who   are    endeavouring  to  produce  as  nearly  as
possible,    actual    mining    conditions.
At   the   face   of  the   tunnel   a   miner
will demonstrate a  drilling machine.
Advertising   the   motto,   "Buy    by
Grade,"   agriculture   students   under
the  leadership  of  Tom  Anstey,  have
prepared a fine exhibition of properly-graded  eggs,  fowl, meat, and seeds.
Practical assistance  to the British   Columbia   farmer   Is   given   by
various  soil analysis conducted at
this  University.     Symbolic  of  thla
contribution by U.B.C. men will be
a   typical   experiment   to   be   performed at "Open  House"  next Saturday.
Greatest     single     contribution      to
Saturday's program  will   be  made  by
the   L.S.E.   clubs   under   the    leadership   of  Dick   Jarvis.
In the Auditorium, the Players'
Club will present rehearsals of
"Pride and Prejudice" from 1:30 until 2:30 p.m. Selections from llpht
operas -will be rendered hy members
of the Musical Society from 2:45
until 3:30. Also, the Radio Society
will   rehearse   "Damien   and   the   Le-

Mobilization Of
Russia Seen As
Threat By Warren
Germany Supreme in
Coal and Iron, But
Needs Oil Badly
An optimistic view of the Allied
chances In the war, with Russia as
the dark horse, was given members
of the Vancouver Institute Saturday
night when Prof. Harry V. Warren
of the Department of Geology addressed them on "Minerals In the
present Conflict."
Prof. Warren emphasised the faot
that Oermany was supreme In coal
and iron, and that fact, despite other
mineral shortcomings, wss sufficient
for the Reich to continue to hold out
as at present Indefinitely.
"Oermany last year surpassed ths
United States as world's greatest coal
producer for the first time sines
1870," he said. "We cannot help admiring that, whatever our opinion of
Hitler may be."
He emphasised Allied superiority In
all-important petroleum. In the
three-week Polish blitakrelg, he said,
the Reichswehr used almost the
year's regular supply of oil. Oermany
needs 30 to 40 million tons a year, of
which five can be produced domestically and seven Imported from Rumania despite British diplomacy and
bad weather.
He hinted why sporadic air raids
continue today without apparent
reason. "Germans must use up their
synthetic aviation gasoline," he
said. "Their gas is srtlflolally obtained, and In storage or in the
tanks of planes It soon loses Its
high octane rating and becomes
useless. A constant store of about
half a million tons Is kept on
Dr. Warren described with considerable zest how the Russians have
bungled over chromium. Apparently
they exported almost all the chromium they mined in 1939 to archenemy Italy, which was odd in the
flrst place. But now with European
tables turned again, Italy is exporting that same metal ln the form of
munitions to Finland.
Lastly, Dr. Warren emphasized the
enormous potentialities of Russia. "If
she is organized by Oerman experts,
then there is a possibility I shudder
to consider," he said.

The Gil Clark Varsity Dance Orchestra problem again crystallizes the struggle for campus music control which has been
going on  for severnl yenrs.
Each time a promising young musician has undertaken to
mold an orchestra from the nil too unpromising talent of this
University, student lenders have turned an inconsiderate back
while Edward A. Jamieson, Secretary of Musician's Union Local
145, has coerced the budding musical organization into oblivion.
Here is a situation which has arisen more from ignorance than
from antipathy, although the latter aspect of the problem might
bear analysis as well.
The facts, then, nre these. The Musician's Union can not force
the demolition of Clark's outfit. The Union has absolutely no
control over amateur musicians. Students' Council is the only
group which has the right to abolish any student organization, and
that authority has already been exorcised.
Further, every American university of any size nnd standing
has not one, but several orchestras on its campus. Investigation
has shown that, although many of those do belong to the Union,
there ore probably just as many or more that do not. This fact
seems to cause no difficulty south of the border.
That Clark is being discriminated against is made obvious by
the fact that other amateur bands—Hullingsworth and Abrahms
to cite two examples—have played for University groups without
censure. There is only one reason for this discrimination—Clark
has attached the name "University" to his organization.
"With all respect to Clark, it is laughable to think that he is
running "in competition" with Union orchestras and men. Mr.
Jamieson may make such assertions, but it is doubtful whether
less dogmatic personalties, such as Mart Kenney or Ole Olson,
would give credence to such a claim,
Gil Clark is, apparently, "unfair to organized labor." One of
two things must be done. The Alma Mater Society must take out
a blanket Union membership to cover all campus dance-men, or
the Alma Mater Society must undertake to blanket all non-campus
dance-men. It is just possible, if we are to be boycotted, that we
might throw a little blockade around the Union. Local 145 would
not like to lose the business that campus clubs and organizations
have given it in the past fifteen years.
The citizens of Vancouver, and for that matter of the Province of B.C., are to be the guests of this University on this coming
Saturday. To be brief, Saturday is Open House, and for the first
time in two years an opportunity will be given to the public to
Inspect the machinery—and workmen—of this academic 'nut and
bolt factory.'
Upper-classmen will recall the success of the last Open House
staged by the University, and will remember thnt some twenty
thousand people visited the campus, to tour from building to
building marvelling at the astonishing displays and experiments
which had been arranged by the faculty and students together.
Just ns the director of Open House in 1938 was an Engineer,
so this year's event has been headed by a Scienceman, Ray Jones.
It is clear that the most impressive exhibits are those of science,
and it wns a science organization that first suggested giving the
people of the province a chance to inspect their own institution.
But Open House cannot be a success without the support of
the entire student body. Although lectures have been cancelled
for most students on Saturday morning, it is hoped that students
will not 'leave town' for the week-end, but will do their part in
running the Show. Students should invite parents, brothers, sisters, friends, etc., to come to Point Orey for the afternoon, should
take personal responsibility for leading them through the buildings, and for explaining nil those details which might escape the
superficial observer.
It might be the opinion of some students that Open House is
a good thing, but that it does not merit any hard work or waste
of time. A successful Open House, however, can do more for the
University in one day than can weeks of work by o Campaign
Committee, nnd presumably the welfare of the University is a
fundamental interest of the average student.
The committee in charge of this year's arrangements has been
working hard for many weeks, and no doubt Saturday will be a
day of triumph, provided the student body give it their full support. Let it be said that the U.B.C. student enn be 'the perfect

Thorugh all the publicity-spewing
agencies—the radio, press, and the
mouth—university students and other
advanced intelligent persons are rap-
Idly becoming aware of the Impending Federal election. The well-known,
smooth, fast-talking politicians have
commanded for the duration the attentions of the usually diffident Oanadlan public.
As rather Interesting self-styled
"statesmen," "emissaries of good will,"
and Ood knows what else they have
appeared quickly upon the horizon
armed with an oily tongue, hypocritical platitudes, hypercritical tendencies, reminiscent platforms, and the
traditionally broken, yet necessary,
To arouse our interest and to overcome our apparent Indifference they
—the Ottawa party "guns"—have followed the advice of the wise Horace
Oraeley. They are coming West.
Some, no doubt, are going West.
With them they have brought their
armour, their artillery, their contacts,
and even their contracts hoping to
prove some non-essential point or to
blacken the perhaps already blackened reputation of some of their opponents.
So be ltl May the best man win!
May the 'right' man be the best man I
As The Mortar Board, my sage co-
columnist ln print observed last week
even we at U.B.O. are not Immune
from election fever. Already the
campus politicians have decided Just
what positions on Oounoil they are
going to have. Long ago they dropped
the ever-so-subtle hint that they
would like to run for some tin-god
Now with election day looming on
the horiBon they have discarded their
assumed modesty to become more direct. Placing their cards on the table
for the inspection ot their immediate
cohorts they have announced their
Intentions of running.
Quite honorable, they assure one I
Furthermore they have appointed
their official campaign manager or
managers, as the case may be, Who
undoubtedly, will do their damnedest
to blacken the reputation of all the
ott\er candidates. It is too much to
expect that these C. M.'s will refrain
from slinging the occasional bit of
mud. If they do they will surprise
Nemo and no doubt many others.
Did I hear you ask why, Algy?
Simply because much has happened
on the Campus this year which, if
twisted around by some of our more
realistic politicians, could be used as
"adverse publicity." Unfortunately for
him, the recipient of this "adverse
publicity could not suspend anyone.
However stupid the students may
be, they cannot be so stupid as to
accept at face value any glib assertions. Rather than instantly believing
the reports In the Daily Rumor the
thoughtful student should check, insofar as he Is capable, all charges,
aspersions, and promises tossed freely about during the duration. Moreover they should analyze the achievements of all candidates.
Some of the 'diehards' who mourn
the existence ot the machine might
ask, somewhat cynically: "Why
bother? What difference does it make
whethe we check the records or
not? The right man will always get
These 'diehards' obviously seem to
forget that election of the nine tin
gods, as well as any election, Involves
selection of individuals whose actions
and decisions are Incorporeal to the
extent that they can be changed and
revised as the occasion demands. It
would be fallacious for any student
tc assume that former actions and
decisions may be blissfully Ignored
just because they are part of the
Irrevocable past.
These actions cannot be Ignored
for they have determined to some
appreciable extent the nature of subsequent acts and decisions. As Bergson might have phrased lt—the individual's past acts endure in the
minds, thoughts, and even the lives
of his fellow  men.
Students face to face with the
problem of selecting their Council
must realize that the memories and
the records of the past are preserved
and hence of necessity must play an
active role In the coming elections.
Happily, such a situation—the blind
acceptance of propaganda and the
complete ignoring of past achievements—will not arise on this campus.
The students, discarding their traditional   diffidence,   will   not   let   their
Few people on this campus realize
just what the Publications Board of
the University really ls. Fewer realise that the Pub, as lt is affectionately called, publishes the Ubyssey,
the Totem, the Handbook, and the
Student Directory.
At the head of the Publications
Board Is the effable and somewhat
suave John Oarrett, Editor-in-Chief.
Under him is the energetic and distinctly prominent Ozzie Durkin, Editor of the Totem; the scholastic
Jack Margeson and the lanky Scl-
tnceman Arvid Backman, Senior
editors of the Ubyssey; the charming Janet Walker, editor of the
Handbook and Student Directory;
J and Lionel Salt, the portly Sports
You might not realize lt but these
people do skip the occasional lecture, first for the sake of old Alma
Mater and second, because they are
filled with that really tangible and
much-spoken-of  college  spirit.
Take for instance Ozzie Durkin,
the Totem Ed.
Now aa you all know he has promised to put out a year book that
will be bigger and better than any
previous Totem. I personally think
he wtll. In fact, judging from the
calibre of the dummy Totem which
he guards sealously I wilt go ao far
aa to aay that lt, the 1940 Totem, will
be a record of campua life that any
undergraduate will be proud to own.
More than that It will be a tribute to
the hard work that Ozzie and hla
staff have put Into lt.
No doubt few of you 'realise the
amount of detail, the amount of
research that haa gone Into the 1940
I do.
Long before the average freahman
on the campus got rid of his inferiority complex, Oscle was keenly Interested in studying year books from
universities all over Canada and the
United States, Because of this research and interest he Is able to put
out his Totem, the 1940 super-colossal   Totem   which   he   promised.
When you see the Totem next
month when it comes out you will
see for yourselves what he has done,
what his staff has done, what a small
nucleus of the student body who are
Interested in newspaper work and
annual   publications   have   done.
Ozzie   take   a   bow.
Now take the Ubyssey editors,

Austen Play Mas Illustrious
Record in Theatre Annals
Four years ago the production of
Helen K. Jerome's sparkling stage
adaptation of the Austen novel,
"Pride and Prejudice", so captivated
theatre-goers of New York and London that lt ran ln each of these cities
for over a year.
Next month this same play, acclaimed by critics as the most accurate and successful Interpretation of
the novel ever produced, will be presented for your pleasure by the Play-
era' Club on the stage of the University Theatre.
Recapturing the traditional grace
and elegance ot life among the gentility of nineteenth century England,
the play moves swiftly through a series of amusing situations. Witty lines
and salty dialogue, deftly delivered by
delightful characters, assure the audience an evening of charming entertainment.
A glance at the casts ot previous
productions of this enchanting romantic comedy reveals many names
famous throughout the theatre. In
New York the part of Elizabeth, bewitching and independent daughter
of the ambitious Mrs. Bennett, was
played by Adrianne Allen, wife of
the well-known actor Raymond Mas-
sey—whose meteoric course through
the world of drama Is familiar to all.
In the same production the more
subdued and said character of Elizabeth's sister, Jane, was portrayed by
Helen Chandler, who will be remembered by Vancouver theatre-goers as
one of the most outstanding members
of the stock company which presented a series of Noel Coward's plays
in this city two years ago.
In London the suave and polished
Darcy was characterized by Hugh
Williams, who will long remain fixed
ln the minds of those who saw
"Wutherlng Heights" as the drunken
and depraved brother of the beauteous Cathie. In London, too, the
part of the pompous dowager, Lady
Catherine, was enacted by Eva Moore
who, besides having an enviable reputation as an actress, has additional
claim to fame by virtue of her former
title, recently relinquished, as mother-in-law of Laurence Olivier.
An inspiration and a challenge to
the stage crew and costume committee ls the fact that the scenery and
costumes for the London production
were designed by Rex Whistler,
grandson of the world-famous
Such success as this play has

celebrates the 25th anniversary of the

and  Prejudice"   an  event  which  will
The Editor:
In the Tuesday issue of the Ubyssey there appeared a cartoon depleting the attitude of the public to the
publicity given to the Science-Aggie
set-to-. Ever since I began attending
this Institution last September I have
heard nothing but warnings and
complaints about the adverse publicity that this affair and that event
would bring to the University. The
tin gods seem to be ln mortal fear
of people "downtown".
The Frosh Bonfire was cancelled,
Froah initiations curtailed, publicity
given to the C.S.A. was lamented,
club initiations and other spectacular
college stunts discouraged. With most
Universities, lnter-faculty fights are
traditional, some even making an
annual affair of them with plans and
date pre-arranged.
I have talked with many "men on
the street", and none of them had
any notion that students out here
were wasting their time. They have
heard, too, many remarks about the
tough courses and hard work entailed ln getting a degree.
Anyway,   is   this   institution   functioning  to impress the public, or to
develop and educate those who desire
the advantages of higher learning?
If lnter-faculty fights characterise 'seekers after higher learning',
the   University    functions    for   the
latter reason.—Ed.

the   ball   over   one-   or   twice,   they
couldn't produce the extra drive.
Though it's pretty hard to single
out any one man as a standout in
a game like Saturday's, fast-breaking, hard-tackling Bob Field looked
to be the best player on either side.
Playing heads-up ball through the
entire tilt, he accounted for Varsity's
only try, and established himself a*
a definite threat to any defense In
the olty.
Andy Johnston also Joins the
merit list, as the Ave points he contributed through the medium ot his
valuable right boot proved to be
the margin of victory at the end of
the  game.
Only sore point about Saturday's
game  was  that  the   boys'   Coach,

Last obstacle for the Campus crew
will be the game against the smooth-
working Vanoouver Rep., whloh  the
Varsity   lads   would   like   very   much
to win "for the satisfaction ot their
souls." After their Saturday display,
they should  certainly give  the  Reps
plenty of tough opposition.

Amateur Boxing
Pickell Punches
Bertram Battler
For Local Title
Thunderbird pugilists entered the
Auditorium boxing ting last Friday
and Saturday evenings for their flrst
whack at the Greater Vancouver
Boxing Championships to emerge
with a chance at the 160-pound Pro
vinclal crown on March 30.
Owen Pickell, raven-haired young
Varsity slugger, stepped out of his
first ring encounter Friday evening
to And himself winner by a deoislon
over Louis Waltzen of Langley, ln
the 160-pound class. The following
evening, the Blue and Gold basher
won the admiration of the dozen
patriotic Varsity students who turned
up, by trouncing Ronnie Whalley,
Grandview knockouter.
Saturday's decision gives Pickell
the chance to carry the U.B.C.
standard Into the Provincial Amateur boxing champlonahlpa on
March 29.
Austin Frith, Varsity welterweight
fighter, won Friday night's Jab session to drop a closely fought decision
the following eve. A whirlwind wm
over Pro-Recs Ed Williams placed
Frith ln the running for Saturday's
fist test. Jabbing like fury Frith
dropped Maurloe Jorgenson, second
Pro-Rec welterwelghter. three times
but the Pro-Rec puncher got the nod.
Even more heartbreaking was Al
Gardiner's bloody battle with Stan
Fussy, unattached battler, on Friday
evening. Varsity fans, the whole 13
of them, cheered themselves hoarse
as Gardiner swapped punches with
the slugger in one of the most spectacular fights of the evening. Judges
split over the decision. One gave the
battle to Fussy, the second wanted to
see another round of sparring. Once
again the referee decided against the
Blue and Gold.
Deploring the lack ef Varsity
support at the two punch sessions,
Maury Van Vliet issued a pie* fer
greater Varsity spirit In the future.
Owen Pickell will be waiting for a
chance to cop the 160-pound title on
March 29. it Is possible, Van VUet
announced, that other UB.C. boxers
will be on hand as well. Applause
from a Varsity cheering section will
go a long way towards victory.

Score 3-3 Tie
In Puck Show
Two thousand hookey fans, or
about one thousand, nine hundred
and eighty more than the average
attendance for a Senior Amateur
game, was a pretty" good convlncer
that the Thunderbird pucksters were
sorely missed in the 'big time' this
Juat to further prove their point,
the oollege men gave the Air Foroe
team the scare of their lives, making
them oome from behind to get a draw
in Friday's carnival thriller.
The game was wide open with Ka-
pak netting a pass from Ted Stevenson to give the Students an early
lead. Then Partridge, the starry captain of the skating squadron, started
off his 'hat trick' to tie up the battle.
The Blue and Gold defencemen
proved their goal soorlng ability
when Jimmy Harmer punched one
paat Tyrell on an assist from Jaok
Moxon. But that man Stan Partridge got one past Ed. Benson to
square things up by the end of the
seoond period.
The Point Grey Blademen again
took the lead In the final stansa,
with Al Bonutto scoring on a paas
from Harry Home. But the Jericho
Beach  lads had Partridge to keep
them In the flght, and he tied it
up close to the end of the game.
Klmberly's gift  to gab,  Goalie Ed
Benson, was a standout ln the student   net,   with   Moxon  and   Harmer
playing heads up hockey on defence.
Credit goes   to  double  duty  coach
Frank   Frederlckson   who   had   both
squads  playing  steamllne   hockey   to
highlight a gala evening.

Temoln suffering the same misfortune a few minutes later.

her Senior B cagettes are Anally
gaining more than "Just fun" from
their basketball games. Besides defeating senior teams at Port Moody
and Mission, they won their exhibition game against the young but
smart-playing  Bluebirds.
In the latter game. U.B.C.'s advantage of height was offset by the complete absence of substitutes, who just
didn't turn out. The Mission game
proved a near defeat with the score
20-10 for Mission at half-time. By
full time, however, U.B.C. had made
a  complete recovery  to win 21-20.

Olllver, Buddie Long, Florence Row-
ell,    Enid    McMurtrie,    Frithy  Frith.
