CONGREGATION   HONORS   Engineers   Make   Whoopee  At  Annual   Banquet
•    UBC GRADUATES with UBC honorary degrees will be
one of the results of the 1945 Fall Congregation. Scheduled for next Wednesday, this will mark one of the significant highlights of UBC history.
Present students are officially in-       ——————^_——
vited by President N. A. M. MacKenzie to attend the ceremonies
and witness the official installation of Chancellor E. W. Hamber.
Dr. H. J. Cody, M.A., D.D.,
LL.D., F.R.S.C, Chancellor, University of Toronto, will deliver the
Congregation address and receive
the degree of Doctor of Laws, conferred last year but withheld because of his absence.
The ceremony will begin at 2:45
p.m. with installation of the Chancellor, Hon. Eric W. Hamber, B.A.,
LL.D., by Lieutenant-Governor W.
E. Woodward. Following this,
Chancellor Hamber will address
the Congregation.
Two of the eight UBC graduates
to receive the degree of Doctor of
Laws will not be present—Dr.
Hugh L. Keenleyside, the first
Canadian Ambassador to Mexico,
and Norman A. Robertson, undersecretary of the Department of
External Affairs. Their mothers,
Mrs. E. W. Keenleyside and Mrs.
Lemuel Robertson, will receive the
degrees for their sons.
The other six include Major-
General H. F. G. Letson, Brigadier
Sherwood Lett, Brigadier William
C. Murphy, Air-Commodore J. L.
Plant, Mrs. Phyllis Gregory Ross,
and Lieutenant Commander Gordon Stead.

DVA Selection
For PC52I0
•   APTITUDE tests are now being given to yeterans applying
for university training under the
Department of Veterans' Affairs.
These tests are given to determine the type of work to which
the applicant is best suited. All
veterans will be required to take
this aptitude test.
The Veterans' Counselling Service is not directly connected with
the DVA, but is a part of the university. It acts, however, as a liaison between the ex-service personnel here and the Department of
Veterans* Affairs.
Service personnel discharged too
late to register for the fall term,
and wishing to start university in
January, are being interviewed
now at the rate of about twenty a
day, according to Major McLean,
of the Counselling Service.
These applicants will not register
as soon as they have been accepted, but will have to wait till December registration opens.
will be granted to Dr. George M.
Volkoff and Col.  Percy M.  Barr,
both UBC graduates.
For the first time, an open invitation to Alumni members has been
issued, and to accommodate the
overflow, the ceremony will be
broadcast throughout Brock Hall.
After the Congregation address
by Chancellor Cody, UBC Chancellor Hamber will confer degrees
on successful students—ten M.A.'s,
72 B.A.'s and Social Service diplomas.
This Congregation, and the precedent it establishes, marks the
"coming of age" of the University
of British Columbia, the youngest
university in Canada.
Following the ceremony, the
Chancellor and the President will
be hosts at a tea for all visitors in
the Brock Memorial Building
Guests to the Congregation, besides delegates from other universities, include representatives of
the government, community organizations, relatives of the graduates, members of the University
Board of Governors and Senate,
and the faculty and staff, and donors of scholarships and prizes to
the university.
Snake Dance Ends
Science Banquet
• A SNAKE PARADE climaxed
the Science banquet Thursday
night when the redshirts were led
by an anonymous ex-science
sophomore through downdown
theatres and hotels.
Bob McLennan, fifth year mechanical, led the engineers in the
singing of lusty science songs following dinner at the Commodore.
A specially prepared science skit
starring girl redshirt, Nella Ozall,
highlighted the entertainment program.
Professor W. Gage's attendance
at a senate meeting interrupted
his traditional science banquet
banter with Dr. H, Smith. Referring to his opponent's absense, Dr.
Smith prophesied "that Professor
Gage would have twice as mucii
to say next year."
During the evening, Archie
Peebles, honorary president of the
engineers presented Tom Scott,
5th year mechanical, with the
winning fourth year proficiency
certificate; he had previously re
celved a S25 book grant.
Jack Beveridge, president of th?
Engineers Undergraduate Society
acted as chairman.
• FOLLOWING THE ACTION of the National Council of
the Student Christian Movement of Canada at its annual
meeting in September, the Executive of the SCM at UBC has
set up a committee to consider the proposals being made to
the Government in connection with the treatment of Canadians of Japanese origin.
The National SCM has endorse 1
a brief which urges that the policy
of dispersion of the Japanese Canadians, which was annouriced by
the Prime Minister in August 1944,
be implemented by making it
possible for them to locate themselves with security throughout
Canada and to take up suitable
lines of work, owning their own
r ropeity.
"Die brief also urges that tlv.
government consider the conditions
of perplexity and despair, and of
prospects of immediate insecurity
in Canada, under which many
Japanese Canadians expressed tne
wish to b: sent to Japan; and that
the government refrain from expatriating on that basis Canadian
citizens who now declare their
desire to remain in Canada.

some quarters, and is bringing together the relevant information in
consultation with other clubs on
the   campus.
On Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 12.30, a
General Meeting of SCM members
will hear the facts of the case and
be asked to make representations
to thc Dominion Government.
The executive of the local SCM
endorses the action of the Toronto
movement in asking that the removal of the Japanese from Canada be more carefully considered
before su.'h action is taken. As
was pointed out, it is a question
not only of the treatment of a
number of individuals, but also of
the status of Canadian citirenship
and of th-1 rights of raeia1 minorities in Canada. It feels that it
would ba a disastrous precedent
to deal ''rhiirarily with so buy, ■

years are being welcomed back to the familiar scenes
they once knew so well and which they still hold so dear.
Homecoming this year assumes an added significance, It
offers the first opportunity for graduates of the last six years
of war, those who left the university to take their places in
the services, to revisit the campus and re-establish old contacts.

• A LONG CHERISHED dream of the Publications
Board and an answer to the persistent demands of literary-minded students will come into being this fall when the
first issue of UBC's new literary quarterly blossoms out on
the campus.
The magazine will contain 32
pages of student contributions in
all fields of literature. It will be
published three times this session
and four times annually in following years.
Modelled to a large extent on
magazines published by universities south of the line, the quarterly
will be called the "Thunderbird."
It will be largely in the lighter
vein, but this does not mean that

Material for the first issue,
which will be published about the
second week ln December, will be
accepted at the publications board
any time between now and the end
of November. Exact deadlines will
be announced  later.
There is practically no limit to
the type of work which will be
accepted for publication, according
to John Green, last year's Totem
editor, who will edit the new publication.
"We will welcome poetry, fiction,
feature articles, literary criticis.n
essays, cartoons and humorous or
controversial columns" Green
stated. He made it clear, however,
that the editorial staff reserve the
right to decide whether or not material is to be printed.

•   THE CANADIAN Broadcasting Corporation is but an
"octupus," preying on private radio networks under the
guise of governmental control. This lii\e of thought, put
forward by Prime Minister Bill Ashton, succeeded in passing
Thursday's Mock Parliament bill on governmental versus
private regulation of radio.        	
Ashton emphasized that outstanding Canadian talent is represented on United States airways,
yet home networks have but tasted "the neck of the chicken" in
regards to radio programs.
"Administration of CBC is in
the hands of a board of governors
who know absolutely nothing
about broadcasting. If this corporation were not hampered by excessive control, the best men would
come to the fore, and programs
would improve all around," he

would be under direct supervision

"Krispy Krunchy" variety, would
be stopped.
Educational programs would be

at present, he pointed out, and
more rigid control of wavelength
allocations would be possible.

• THE SALE of Victory Bond3
on the campus has had very
gratifying results so far, according
to V. A. Wolfendon, Victory Loan
representative at UBC.
He stated that the Varsity sal»3
unit got off to a good start Monday
towards its 1200,000 objective with
a sale of bonds totalling 96.300.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday sales brought the total to

from the Bond centre in the Administration building.
Wolfenden pointed out that the

• STILL A CAMPUS orphan is the Undergraduate Societies Committee this week, as members study books on
government to revamp their constitution which was bounced
back to the committee by Student Council for reconsideration. Committee members will draw up a new constitution
Monday noon following a conference Friday with three members of Council, Fred Lipsett, Nancy Pitman, and Cal Whitehead.
Comments of Councillors on the
proposal that the full executive of
all the Undergraduate societies be
voting members of the USC we.'.'
varied. The motion was branded
as "foolishness" by USC chairman
Hugh McLeod.
"A group cannot be functional or
truly advisory with 70 members,"
alleged Sidney Flavelle, council
Newly-elected Sophomore Member Cal Whitehead got in his first
argumentative two cents worth in
favor of a USC consisting of the
14 presidents of the undergraduate
societies only, by claiming "if undergraduate bodies had confidence
in the presidents elected the USC
would be mere functional and re
presentative  than  a  larger  group
would be.
The phrase in the proposed constitution which is causing the
greatest flurry of argument is that
the USC be established to "safeguard the constitutional rights of
all the members of the Alma Mater
That is our function already and
since only one group on tlv campus has power, the connotation is
that the USC might have thc feeling of fighting council," objected
Treasurer  Gurry  Miller.
Council members agree unanimously that "all persons should be

the   USC." THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, October 27, 1945, Page 2
Governmental Teeth-cutting
There is nothing more perplexing to an
enthusiastic, hard-working student than to
be appointed to do a job, but at the same time
being quite uncertain as to the duties involved. Such is the case with the members
of Undergraduate Societies Committee, an
infant organization which is still an orphan,
governmentally speaking.
The committee, which was victorious over
an advisory council in the government revision battles' last spring, was set up to replace the more or less spiritually defunct
Men's Undergraduate Society. The old arguments against the Men's Undergraduate
Society were that from the functional point
of view, as a discipline committee, the position of MUS was unsatisfactory, and that,
because it had no other real function to serve
on the campus apart from decking the freshmen in green the first part of the year, it
was an inactive group and did little to boost
morale in the undergraduate societies.
What was needed, a majority of students
decided at a government revision meeting in
the spring, was a thoroughly representative
group of undergraduates representing all
years, who would take upon their collective
shoulders as members of undergraduate societies executives, some of the work otherwise burdened upon council, and also act
as a sounding board for student opinion. A
committee presented was to be elected in the
spring from the ranks of the newly chosen
undergraduate presidents to council.
However, as a Ubyssey story stated lats
week, "the Undergraduate Societies Committee is glinguox with its diapers." The fact
that the constitution of the committee recently ratified by its members, was bounced back
for reconsideration by student council proves
that minor snarls in student government will
have to be smoothed out immediately to a-
void deadlock of ideas and duplication of
duties between two groups. Otherwise the
Undergraduate Societies Committee will not
be able to fulfil its original purpose on the
campus before the winter term is over, and
the situation may result in a constant Duty
Eleven versus USC statement. There must
be only one truly functional group on
the campus. The size of the committee has
been a troublesome snag. Proposals that
members of all undergraduate societies executives, almost seventy people in all, should
sit on the committee, were voted down by
council, and wisely, too.
The old saw that two or more heads are
better than one does not hold true when it
comes to student government, if sections of
students have elected their undergraduate
representatives wisely. Although the committee was established to serve as a type of
student senate a president should be able
to present the opinion of his undergraduate
society and enforce the disciplinary measures which were given to the USC by council as a courtesy gesture.
It all boils down to the brutal fact that the
USC has very little more to do than the abolished Men's Undergraduate Society. And
its suggestions are still subject to banishment . Thus the presence of almost seventy
committee members would be slightly unnecessary.
This does not constitute a wet-blanketing
attempt on the set-up, as the USC is, we geel,
potentially both a functional and a truly representative organization. It differs from
the Men's Undergraduate Society in that
fresh organization has brought an obviously heightened sense of student responsibility,
that ther are several thriving new undergraduate societies added, and that a president
will be elected from the committee itself to
represent it on council next year.
It should work well when its established
members will be content to come to weekly meetings and do a little more talking as a
group than acting as a group.
• I DON!T BELJEVE any of the servicemen returning to the campus have bothered recording how their training affected
v their period of active service during the war.
Nobody has described how, when the going got tough over there, his cadet days at
UBC stood him in good stead, or even stead
him in good stood. In fact the silence is
downright embarrassing.
With a polite cough, therefore, I'd like to
get the bull rolling with an account of how
experience influenced my own minor role
in the conflict. (First I should mention that
before enlisting in the active forces I had risen to the rank of private in the COTC, having distinguished myself in three different
medical examinations and fought off single-
handed several violent attacks of acid indigestion.) Thus when I joined the RCAF it
was natural that they should immediately
promote me to AC2.
COTC training, a sticky compound of spit
and polish, soon revealed itself in my persistent habit of shining my buttons. Long
after the other recruits had overcome their
fear of corporals and were lovingly cultivating rare species of green moss on their
brass, I continued to shine my buttons. Two
years after I left Manning Depot I was itill
buying large economy-size bottles of Silvo.
I was ashamed, of course, but I just couldn't stay away from the stuff. The Corps was
too deeply engrained; in my twisted mind I
was rising from corporal to field officer. The
fact that I was still an AC2 didn't seem to
Dear Old Alii ford
I remember vividly the day this habit almost cost me my health. I was at Alliford
Bay station, whose personnel were notorious
for their informal dress. Surreptitiously I was
shining some tunic buttons in my hut one
day, when suddenly a large, greasy rigger
walked in. I shoved the cleaning materials
under my bunk, but I could tell his suspicions had been aroused by the way he
was holding my nose in his pliers.
"What you doin' there?" he demanded
thickly. "I ain't doing nothing," I replied,
hoping to conceal my college education with
a double negative. He was not to be deceived by such a flimsy device. Quickly,
too quickly, he rapped: "I saw you. You was
buttin' your buffons." "I was not buttin' my
buffons," I replied tersely. "I mean buffin'
your buttons," he snarled. "So do I," I countered, determined not to give ground as long
as the argument remained verbal.
"The joes around here take a dim view
of anybody cleaning' his brass, son," he continued. This was the first time I had heard
the expression "to take a dim view," but
from the way his hand kept hitting the side
of my head I gathered that it was unfavorable.
Shrum As a Vision
After waiting an hour to make sure the
rigger had gone away, I climbed down carefully from the roof and, after consulting my
face in the mirror, decided my complexion
couldn't stand too many dim views being
taken by people with hard, horny hands. I
swore I wouldn't clean my buttons again.
Immediately Colonel Shrum appeared as a
vision, wagging his finger disapprovingly,
but I shook him off with a hot shower.
I managed to go five days without once
cleaning my brass, not even touching a button unless absolutely necessary. But then
little things kept reminding me of the COTC,
maybe a man would drop his rifle on parade,
or a rifle would drop a man on the shooting range— and the old desire would sweep
over me hotly. I tried to lick the thing; it
was no use. I started polishing my buttons
once more, secretly, after dark, behind the
coal pile.
Against the Wall
There I would sit, with my brass dully
reflecting the moonlight, and from time to
time Colonel Shrum would appear on a vapour, nodding benignly. Once, moment of
moments— he spoke to me encouragingly,
unprintably. Then, after I had polished tiie
buttons I rubbed tar and grease on them
so that rigger and his friends wouldn't know.
This went on until I finally obtained a compassionate posting to Ottawa.
In other, less harrowing ways the COTC
training backed me up on active service,
often right up against the wall. In the Corps,
for instance, we had learned how to crawl
under a wire fence, and were about to try
it on a real wire fence when I enlisted. On
at least one occasion this crawl saved me
from an ugly encounter with an armed patrol of 3P's on my return to camp from a
nightly celebration.
And, naturally, since the COTC had
taught me something about rifle drill, I had
an advantage over the recruits who didn't
know a butt from a bustle. Thanks to this
previous training I was appointed by the
corporal to do guard duty, while the rest of
the flight had to go down to tiie YMCA to
swim or shoot pool.
Oh, there were numerous little ways the
good old COTC helped me stay in the Service, maintaining my rank of AC2, as I did,
right up to the day of final victory. So, if
there are any young punks on the campus
scoffing at the Corps, they'd better not come
near me. Why? Because I've been eating
onions, that's why.
• IT IS MY HOPE in this article to express not only my
opinions but many of those on the campus.
We have all seen the awe-inspiring plans released from
Dr. MacKenzie's office relating to the building additions
which will be added as and when Ottawa issues the permit.
These have been held up by war requirements until we now
arrive at a post-war condition through which we are promised extensive and elaborate additions to our now inadequate
Ike. tthfUeif,
We have had partial non-permanent buildings since 1915 with
a definite promise that these temporary conditions would bi abolished in the immediate future.
Nevertheless we still have hope
that the Board of Governors will
find a means through which they
can obtain an objective suitable to the needs of our present
It has often been a matter of
great wonderment to me that
funds, presumably allocated for a
specific purpose, for example
Gasoline Road Taxes, have seemingly been spent for purposes very
remote from the source of income.
Another source of wonderment
on which I, along with many
others, lack Information, is tha
capital funds which were apportioned to our university for the
specific -purposj of Its capital development.
It is my understanding that certain lands were allocated as a
trust and the proceeds from their
sale or lease were to inure as an
endowment for the development
of UBC.
It is the main question of many
students as to whether or not
thesj monies have been utilized
during the past thirty years in tho
manner in which they were intended.
It would appear from the lack
of development throughout that
period, that such monies had been
utilized for operating expenditures
rather than for the expansion of
the university.
It is sincerely hoped that the
contemplated expansion will arise
from the capital monies properly
allocated for the purpose, and not
from the operating expenses of the
university or the individual efforts
of the Alumni.

"Kaye is one of those rare individuals who can legitimately lay
a double claim to the adjective
'brilliant." For he is not only
blessed with a 'crowning glory' of
this nature, but he also shines as
a student, to which fact several
scholarships, innumerable first
classes and an honors course in
history testify.
"In the eyes of the general student body, however, his greatest
achievement was his prize play.
"The Usual Thing.' Among the lesj

Speaking of newspapers, there
has been a little shake-up on the
editorial staff of the Maple Leaf

by Canadian service. Some of
these men have been in active

points should not be counted until
they have arrived overseas. Anyway, I'm afraid the Maple Leaf
will lose all its old fire and become merely a newspaper.
Concerning the CAOF, moxt of

the higher point-men get home but
what then? In all the army's plans

UBC Library Given
Valuable Canadiana
• THE COLLECTION of Canadiana in the Library haa
been considerably enlarged by a gift of some 1100 books
and pamphlets on Canadian literature from the library of the
late A. M. Pound, it was announced from President N. A.
M. MacKenzie's office this week.
Mr. Pound was a former secretary of the Board of Harbour
Commissioners, and was well-
known for his Interest in community affairs.
Tho presentation was made by
his three daughters, Mrs. Alan B.
Llaunt, of Ottawa, Mrs. Maurice
Dockrell, of Dublin, Eire, and Lt.
Marjorie Pound who is now in the
Wrens. Mrs Plaunt and Lt. PounJ
are both UBC graduates.
The Pound collection ia comprised of Canadian fiction, essays, and
poetry. Mr. Pound collected autographed copies of books by Canadian writers, and his tine collection of the works of Bliss Carmen
and Sir Charles O. D. Roberts,
both of whom were intimate
friends of Mr. Pound, is unique in
that it contains personal comments
by these famous Canadian poets.'
The Pound collection also includes works by Annie Charlotte
Dalton, Isabel Ecclestone MacKay,
Robert Allison Hood and other
Vancouver writers.
Previous to the addition of the
Pound collection, the university
had already established a library
of Canadian literature through the
bequests of the late Judge F. W.
Howay and Dr. Robie Reid. These
joint contributions form a distinguished collection.
"The choice of items of the
Pound collection will be shelved
with the libraries of Dr. Reid and
Judge Howay," Dr. Kaye Lamb,
librarian, stated, "And these three
together will form one of the finest collections of Canadiana in ex-
"Many of the books are so rare
or unusual as to be beyond evaluation in terms of money."
A special book plate for the new
collection Is being prepared.

Jjorn to a Quaker family in a little thatched
cottage, in England in 1766, John Dalton ac-
quired enough education at twelve years oj
age to start a school of his own, He Began to
take regular weather readings and wot noted
for his ability to predict the weather. He
studied flowers and insects, optics and color*
blindness, and finally decided to make chemistry his lif e work. Ho noted the constant proportions in which different elements combine
with one another, and finally established the
atomic theory in chemistry.
JUST as Dalton's research paved the way
for the development of many new and
improved materials and products, so research carried out by the Canadian Nickel
industry has played its part in developing
better materials and products.
Sixty years ago there were practically no
uses' for Nickel except for Nickel plating,
for coinage and for Nickel silver. Today
Nickel is required in nearly every industry
for making top quality products or for
keeping production costs down.   The re
search that has helped to bring this about
will be continued in the years to come.
The information collected from the field of
metal research by International Nickel
scientists is available to Canadian engineers;
designers and metallurgists seeking better
materials for any product or process.

Everybody Likes It
• IT WOULD SEEM that there is one activity at Varsity
this year where we can truthfully say that "everyone is trying to get into the act." And in this case we are happy to hear
that it is so popular amongst the students at UBC this year.
We speak of the Intramural set-up that Bob Osborne
has so effectively put into practice since he arrived at the
beginning of the term.
As Bob explained to us at the time, the whole idea was
to get as many people as possible into organized sports and
he has most certainly succeeded in doing just that. Hundreds
of boys are listed on the Intramural teams and an organized
schedule has already been drawn up for Volleyball and
Touch Football, both of which are in action now.
There are twenty-four teams entered in the competition.
Twelve of these are fraternities and as usual, the frat boys
are carrying their share of the load. However, the other
twelve teams prove interesting too.
Lots of Competition
The "Men in Red" got so pepped up about the idea that
they entered one team of Engineers and another team simply
called the Sciencemen. Their opposition is finding that their
indomitable spirit can not be put down any too easily.
The VCF team comes from the Varsity Christian Fellowship. There are also teams from tiie Anglican College and
from Union College.
The only faculty to field a team is the Aggies. The boys
in yellow are doing well too. Another group has been formed
around a nucleus of boys from Trail and Rossland who call
themselves the Smelter City gang. The boys of the Ex-Army
Course who were taking No. 2 Army Course out here have
entered a team.
From the high schools, three more teams have been made
up. The Lambdas are ex-Byng boys, while Magee's representatives have once more entered the Mu Phi's. A new addition is the Ex Kits, group which has entered under the name
of the KAT's.
And Then There's the Jokers
The organization that \eally takes the cake, however,
is the Jokers' Club. The group originally started as an ex-
Serviceman's intramural team, but since that time, everything that one could imagine and some that you couldn't, has
happened to the Jokers.
The whole thing was the brainchild of one Dave Q. (as
in queer) Hayward. He was certainly just the man that the
boys needed. Since its beginning two weeks ago, the club
membership has reached about 150. The only limitations are
that you are not supposed to belong to a fraternity and that
you have got to be absolutely nuts.
The Jokers have indeed begun to build up some spirit
around UBC and we could certainly do with it. They will
probably be at the game today to add interest to the Homecoming event.
A Big Happy Family
' There's no doubt about it—Intramurals are really something big this year. The boys must like it of else they wouldn't come out for seven o'clock games or spend their lunch
hours playing for the team. What's more, audiences are beginning to develop, particularly when the Jokers are playing.
Ihe best thing about it is that these teams are helping
to create Interest in UBC for the team members. We need
plenty of that UBC spirit too. We've heard people say that
there isn't as much spirit at UBC as there was at their high •
school. Let's all get behind these intramurals and give it all
we've got. And most Important of all—remember that UBC
is our Alma Mammy. It's the only way to build that spirit up.

did the Thunderbirds show any
drive. The first time was in the
second quarter when they advanced thc ball 49 yards in two
plays. Phil Guman completed a
pro pass to Cliff Wyatt for nine
yards and on the next play Rcr

Dmitri Goloubef, who gathered it

The Varsity team has not had

Towards the end of the game
the boys started to give Coach

very nearly threw the game away.
The game was a well-fought affair, and was close all the way

ripped off a couple of largo gain*

when they face their college rivals, the Varsity Veterans, in
the annual Homecoming feature.
The Vets are currently tied for the runner-up position
with Meralomas just two points back of the leading 'Birds.
If they lose this alj-important struggle, the ex-service stars

series into a three cornered flght
for the coveted trophy. The other
member of the triumvirate whicn
has taken a strangle-hold on the
league standings is Jack Bain"s
colorful Meralomas. 'Lomas ai'->
favored to waltz through Ex-Britannia down at the Point this afternoon.
Varsity, after their thrilling victory over Meralomas last weer;,
are all set for their rivals r.nd are
confident of taking their fourth
straight win of the year. Incidentally, the Birdmen haven't
been beaten in the last two years
and have been tried only twice.
They will be led into the, fray
by Barney Curby, hero of last
week's terrific battle. Curby is fast
rounding into one of the outstanding players at his position on thj
entire B.C. coast.
Leading the attack from he backfield will be the very dependable

There has been a major ti.nke-uu
in Varsity's already^highly potent
scrum with hard working Keith
McDonald being injected into the
lineup in place of Earl Buttei-

Then is '• possibility that Butter-

which was injured last year, nas
not mended properly.

In an attempt to combat the
tremendous speed and drive of
their younger opponents, the Vets
will rely on their overall experience. Many of the club's stalwarts
starred on the gridiron for years
before entering the service so they
have a great deal of scoring punch
in their lineup.
To begin with, they have former
Rep, Barrie Morris, who has beo>i
carrying the brunt of the attack
along with Captain Bud Spiers.
Spiers has looked very good so
far this season and can be counted
on to play a steady game at hh
five-eighths spot.
Another star in the backfield is
Owen Gilpin, fullback deluxe. Gilpin is a smart ball player and will
be a heaJache to the Varsity attackers.
