Greeks Plan
Bond Sales
Sororities on the campus
will meet-today at noon to
present reports on what their
organizations will be able to
do to support the Victory
Loan drive.
Many of these groups make payments to international headquarters across the line and since the
beginning of the war they have
been unable to transfer their funds
across. It is suggested that they
may be able to put these funds
In War Bonds for the duration.
Another possible source which
will be discussed today are the
housing funds which some of the
Greek organizations have set up
with an eye to a Fraternity Row
on the campus in the future, it
has been suggested that, those
funds would also be better invested In war bonds rather than In
other places.
It is expected that the fraternities and sororities "will give Individual reports at the mass meeting tomorrow.

Backman Warns
Clubs About
Paying Fees
e SEVERAL CLUBS and organizations on the campus under
the jurisdiction of the AMS have
not remitted their fees to the Alma
Mater Society as guaranteed. Unless these clubs make a determined effort to collect and turn In
their membership fees, the Treasurer of the AMS may feel compelled to cancel or revise their
The attention of the AMS is directed to the following articles of
the Code of the Alma Mater Society of the University of British
Columbia, namely; Article IV (b)
and Article IV (5).
Article IV—1—(b) All moneys
received by student organizations
under the Society. Such moneys
shall be remitted by the treasurer
of such organization forthwith
after receipt of same to the business office of the Society.
Article IV—5. Any student organization under the Society may
spend money for the purposes and
up to the amount prescribed for
its use in the said budget, but
shall not spend moneys which are
not prescribed in the budget except by special permission In
writing first had and obtained
from the Students' Council.
Organizations and clubs that
have not yet submitted a budget
for this year's activities may obtain financial assistance from the
AMS provided a budget is submitted to the treasurer on or before November 7, 1942. Budgets
submitted after that date will not
be considered.

But Victory
SexCleavage Shown
By Employment File
•   INTERESTING SIDELIGHTS into the life, of the University have been revealed through the files of the University Employment Bureau, run by Elliot Montador and
Bob Whyte.
A distinct lack of co-operation between the sexes is
shown by the fact that most of tiie men who have registered
for employment have shown a preference for Saturday even-
jobs, but without exception the co-eds have turned down any
position offered for that night.
One candid friend of a freshette       _______■_______________
who    was   registering   remarked
that she didn't go out on Satur
days anyway, but the freshette replied, "I can dream, can't I?"
Eighty-five per cent, of the applications have been from first year
students. Bob Whyte has suggested the reason for this is that the
first year students don't know what
they ere up against. Practically
all the women who have registered so far have had experience as
The Employment Bureau wlU
probably become one of the permanent units of the AMS. It will
function through the summer for
Summer Session students and
continue its work after the war Is
In the Spring of last year a large
number of prospective employers
contacted the University after it
had closed, and there was no organization to take care of the jobs,
but this will be handled by the
Bureau this year.
The Selective Service has promised its full co-operation in finding Christmas jobs for students,
and there will probably be more
jobs than people to fiU them. The
Employment Bureau wlU be able
to pick out the best offers to give
to students. The same conditions
are expected to apply to summer
The Bureau feels that it could
function equally as a date bureau.
One suggestion is that students
turn in their last year's passes as
a guide to matching couples. Height
and weight are the only things the
Bureau asks for now.
All employers are asked to report upon the work of the student!* they hired. The Bureau wiU

Hold Mass Meeting
Tomorrow At 12:30
•   A MASS MEETING to inform the student body of what
they can do to help in the current Canadian Victory Loan
will be held in the Auditorium, Wednesday, at 12:30.
Speakers will be Flight-Sergeant Ian Hoy, RAF, who
will tell of his experiences in RAF raids on the western front,
and a speaker from Victory Loan headquarters in Vancouver, who will explain to the student body just how bonds
may be bought, either outright or on the instalment plan
through banks.
Unfortunately the plan was not .
put forth until last week and as
time is short the student campaign wUl be rushed.
Because of the war bond drive
the Red Cross Ambulance campaign which was scheduled to start
this week, has been postponed tot
one week. It wlU take place the
week of November 8.
It is emphasized by those in
charge that the primary bject of
the drive is to show the students
and campus organizations how
they can utilize funds which they
may have to 'help their country
and at the same time benefit themselves by a sound investment.
Many campus clubs are at
present investigating their finances to see how they may get in on
the loan. Arvid Backman, AMS
treasurer, wUl present a report on
an expected investment by tho
war bonds.
Plans have been made to have
a representative from tho Victory

actual selling of tho bonds.

buying It, "because otherwise I'd
drink it up in a few days."
Elliott is an Engineer, in third

Jealous Engineers Thwart
Artsman Rejuvenation
•   FRICTION between Artsmen and Engineers came to head
Friday «at noon culminating in a general brawl.
Artsmen "vice-presidents" were holding a meeting prior
to a snake parade in the Arts common room.   But certain
Engineer patriots decided to hold a parade of their own to
offset the new opposition.
Consequently* a rapid crowd of
Sciencemen marched over to the
common room, thus rudely breaking up the meeting that was in
progress—and the fight started.
The Arts Letter Rack was torn
from its mooring by a couple of
Redshirts who were promptly
thrown out of the window. Arts-
men and Engineers, coming to the
rescue, clashed head on and the
fight moved out in front of the
Arts building where a few shrubs
were  broken.
The Redshirts retreated to their
own building with the Artsmen in
hot pursuit, and the battle continued.. One unfortunate Artsman
lost his trousers and one of his
shoes—the latest report is that he
is stiU looking for his shoe.
Battling had generally subsided
by 1:30 with only isolated skirmishes and occasional patrols by
either side into enemy territory.
A check-up revealed that not
much damage was done but that
battles might break out again at
any time.

Victory Loan
This week a drive will be launched on
the campus to raise funds for Canada's current Victory Loan. Unfortunately the possibilities of a campaign of tills nature were
not realized until recently, and the drive
will have to be put over in a few days as
the campaign winds up on November 7.
Although the great majority of the students have not the wherewithal to purchase
bonds, owing to the academic expenses they
have to meet, there may be some students
with money which they can invest. It is also
very likely that quite a number of campus
organizations will have some funds which
could well be invested in bonds.
It is not the intention of the drive to set
a quota and to place students in the ember-'
rassing position of having made a commitment which they cannot fulfil, rather the
idea is to seek out students oV organizations
who may desire to make the investment.
Every contribution to the Victory Loan
is valuable. Canadians in the armed forces,
who are giving everything to the war, should
receive every support fro mthe civilian
population, and in this case lt is money
that is needed.   It is essential that every
possible source be tapped to provide the
money, which will purchase equipment for
the war machine.
Looking at it from a strictly business
angle, war bonds are the best investment in
Canada today. They bear interest at three
per cent., and they are negotiable at any
time if an emergency should arise. Too, they
are backed by the Dominion Government.
Time payments can be arranged through
banks under reasonable terms.
Many clubs have already expressed a
willingness to put sinking funds which they
have started into Victory bonds, so that after the war they will have these secure.
To other clubs in similar positions we suggest that they look into the benefits of this
Also we urge every student to make it
his business to be in the auditorium tomorrow noon to listen to the representatives of
the Victory Loan as they outline the set-up
of the campaign. It may surprise many students to find that they too can invest in
Canada and at the same time invest in their
own future.
On Spirit
Almost everything that can be said
•bout brawls between University students
in war time has been laid before. Last Friday's battle between the Engineers and the
Artsmen only serves to show Us that some
students have not realized that these affairs
have a very adverse effect on the University.
Even 4a time of peace, the picture of
young men, supposedly engaged in the pursuit of liiglier learning, damaging property
and nnning obtbee in a silly struggle is not
one to inspire confidence in a university education.
In war-time the destruction of clothes
and property is a far more serious offence.
We might point out to the students who
were mixed up in that battle that the damages will probably be assessed against the
caution money, a good deal of which is turned over1 to the Red Cross at the end of the
year. The Red Cross can make far better
use oi it in repairing human damages, than
the administration can in repairing unnecessary damages to the Arts common room.
That is well worth thinking about when future brawls are contemplated.
We hesitate to criticize the Artsmen,
who were apparently trying to revive their
faculty spirit when the Engineers burst in
on them. Ihe Arts spirit has been non-exist
ent for years and! to see it come to life with
a bang was gratifying to most Artsmen in
spite of the fact that the demonstration of
the new spirit wis misdirected.
The spirit Is evidently there, so we suggest it be diverted along more constructive
channels such as helping out the war drive
the way the Engineers did in the Mile of
Pennies campaigu last year.
As to Engineers, it must have come as
a surprise to them to be met with opposition,
after the years that they have lorded it over
the rest of the eampus. Vet we realize that
there is no faculty better organized on the
campus and that they have done a good deal
to advance the war work on the campus.
To them we suggest that they curb the small
group in their faculty who feel that they
must show their manly strength by physical
attacks on other faculties. We might point
out, too, that although their position on the
campus is most favorable because they are
badly-needed in war industries, this does not
give them the right to do as they please.
To both faculties we suggest thgt( if, after doing all they can tc* help the campus
war effort, they still have some excess time
and energy, which they just have to let off
in good fight, they get into strip and have
their squabble on one of the playing fields
where they cannot damage anything but
The Mummery
• • • •
by Jabez
Dear Andy,—
Enclosed find the two clams I owe you
for my subscription to the . . . what's the
name of that paper? Ah, yes! The
"UBYSSEY", of course.
I appreciate the fact that you must be
swooning with curiosity to know where I
I could cull two clams. Suffice it to say that
I buried the body with some care, and do not
expect it to be discovered until I am well
on my way to sunny Ecuador, if not Tibet,
depending on how the street cars are running.
Incidentally I am entranced, not to say
noisily drooling, to note that you are reprinting some of the old columns, which are
practically as good as new. Needless to say,
I shall be delighted to see a continuation of
this policy. More than that, I shall demand
my money back if I do not see a continuation
of this policy.
There are, however, certain rather grisly
aspects to this reprinting business, and if
carried to inordinate lengths, (anything over
300 feet) it may lead to confusion, panic,
and unspilled blood. For, I notice upon
reading a recent rehash that all the typographical errors in the original have been
reproduced with scrupulous, nay, loving
care. The person who copied it was apparently unable to distinguish them as other
than a manifestation of my sparkling style.
Such sentences as "And when I came to the
drug store, but? Glug, Glug," are taken for
little gems of inimitable humor, and appeal
in the reprint in all their pristine glory.
This gibbering of the Old Master is further enhanced by the appearance of a fresh,
happy gang of new typographical errors in
the reprint. We may expect, therefore, if
this reprinting business goes on too long,
that some Old Boy of the Class of '41 will
be picking up his son's "UBYSSEY" in 1965,
and seeing the heading "The Muuu?merym",
by Jaboozer
He will point, choking with'laughter, at
a line like: "Hnff the blue slod but schoo-
hoohoo on,the back end of fftt fftt going
south without any guzzle ooo I nbeh indthe.
Eh?" and go off into a paroxysm of hysteria.
"That Jabez sure was a card, wasn't
he?" sighs the Old Boy, wiping the tears
from his eyes.
To which his bewildered son will tactfully nod agreement, perhaps adding a little
"Too bad he couldn't write English."
But I shall always be grateful for the
laurels I won working for the "UBYSSEY",
even if I do have to clip them myself. Only
the other day I was walking down the street,
with people turning and staring and pointing at me, whispering to one another. They
wouldn't have done that if I hadn't won my
name on the "UBYSSEY." Of course, the
fact that I had walked out of the tailor's
without my pants on may also have had
something to do with it.
And the other night I was in an Aristocratic Hamburger, (in a place where they
sell the Aristocratic Hamburger, that is. I
wasn't actually IN the hamburger, you understand. That's silly. And besides, THAT
happened a week before). I was sitting
there, morosely watching a fly making like
Gloria Callen in my milk shake, when there
entered a pretty girl whom I immediately
recognized as a co-ed, from the way she
wasn't carrying her books.
As the fly was now taking a breather
on the straw, coolly licking my milk shake
off his mitts, I allowed my attention to wander to the co-ed, sitting opposite. Suddenly
she smiled at me, knocking my hat clean off.
"She recognizes you!" I murmured to
myself, nudging myself in the ribs, "Jabez
scores again!"
I .hoisted one eyebrow, and waved it
around tentatively, indicating surrender.
Her smile broadened.
"Nothing like being a public figure to
fascinate women," I chortled to myself, hoist-

offer an explanation.
As a matter of fact, quite
a while ago I decided to do
that personally to the young
lady in question, but I didn't
have the courage. So now I
do it publicly, hoping that
she will understand.
Her name is Ivy, and she is very
sweet. She is half of one of the
idyllic romances of the campus,
and at the same time the victim
of a "Pub habitual saying," of
which there is at least one each
year. The pity of It all, as far as
she Is concerned, Is that she is a
victim of circumstance.
You see, had there been any
other such person 'by that name,
then that other girl would have'
bean the victim. So there is nothing personal.
• BUT first let me explain about
. those habitual sayings. It happens this way: One Pubster, or a
notorious campus figure, or a radio comedian, wiU make remarkable statement. Immediately it is
picked up by tho Pub and carried
ori as a battle cry.
for Instance, two years ago two
mad cub reporters would come and
sit in the halL screaming for an
"ass-lgnment." So now we always   sail   assignments "aas-lgn-
And one of "those lovely boys"
(that's another pot phrase) presented us with the saying "Have
you seen aU those aegroesT", which
has Uvsd with us over sines. With
It wo completely mystify tho uninitiated.
When I asked this of Lester Su-
garmsn last summer he countered
with "What do they ssy in Africa", which ia apparently a Players' Club pet. Tho two went together rather weU, don't you
• ANOTHER ia "No more of this
for " " (ftU In the blank
yourself). That started in the
first issue of 1940 when an editor
titled a picture of M. L. Van VUet
pointing to a basketball with "No
More Of This for Maury," intending to signify that sport was dead
on the war-time campus.
It so happened that circumstances forced sports editors to use
this cut over and over again, and
every time they would put over it
some variation of "No More Of
This For Maury."
So now, everytime we run a picture showing something that the
war has changed we are tempted
to put "No More Of his etc.,' And
we often do.
Well, that's how these* phrases
start. It's just Uke "I dood it," or
"Knock knock," only this is more
private,   Crazy? But so are you.
• BUT back to Ivy. Just as last
year was the year of "When
are you going to take that bath,"
or "Fikeye-ya" (phonetic spelling)
so this is our "Ivy" year."
This Is how it started:
1. Ivy Is well known to us.
2. We are Interested in Duke
Ellington's band.
3. Ellington has a vocalist caUed
Ivle Anderson,
4. Ellington has a trumpeter
called Rex Stewart.
5. Stewart can say "Iiiveee!" on
his trumpet.
8. .Someone remembered that
when he saw the campus Ivy, so
he screamed "Iiiiiveeeeee!" And so
It started.
Now every time one of the mad
group sees Ivy, he screams "IMiiv-

sound of that siren that goes off
every day at two o'clock. Put It
all together and you have "Iiiiiiv-
It got to be one of those things
that you say at the oddest times
and placos, always causing great
mirth. (Possibly you have a saying Uke that. If so, let us know
and we'U see 1f we can make you
famous too.)
It was left to Art Eaton to give
the perfect setting for our yeU.
"Imagine," says he, "a damp fall
night on the campus, say about
8:30. The mist is beginning to

just as In "The Hound of the Bas-
kervilles." The door of the big

what  a  difference  one
short week can make. The
week before hut the Mamooks put on a pep meet that,
scream as they have, flopped pitifully. Last week
this same group put on a
pep meet that, musically, was
as good as anything ever
presented here. Of course
there was still that inc.
But nobody was listening to the
m. c, anyway. They were too
busy being amazed at what the
six musicians on the stage wore doing. These men: Phil Nimmons
clarinet, and leader; Jimmy Mc-
CuUoch, trombone; Doug Parker,
piano; Ches Cotter, guitar; Leo
foster, bass; and George Reifel,
drums,; produced some of the nicest jazz that I have ever heard on
this campus.
• THEY HAD their faults, which,
with their permission I ahaU deal
later, but playing together as they
were for tho first time, who wouldn't have faults?
The point is that faults or no
faults, this is the group that we've
been waiting for. And already
they are talking of breaking up.
George Reifel does not fool that he
can give any time to drumming,
the rest feel that they can give
very Uttle time to their ploying.
Consequently, they are afraid
that if they keep en as a unit, before they know it they wiU be
playing several times a week. And
If I had my way they would be.

Then (she hopes,) all her friends

them all to her chain. Of course,
the idea is to have as many as
possible. It tinkles.

Arizona. Hearing a friend from
there describe a boy as belnv;
"realy K-handsome," made us decidedly curious. So we determined to discover what she meant. It
seems that when the word "corny"
came Into use, the youth of Yuma
decided to make it more so, by
adding a K. Hence, "K-corny".
Then, because It was such a nice,
emphatic form of expression everyone began adding the K as a prefix to other words too, i.e.: K-
handsome, K-repulslve, and K-etc.

Pearkes Commends Corps;
Suggests Battle Training
•   MAJOR-GENERAL G. R. Pearkes, V.C., last Saturday
afternoon  appeared  on the  campus  for what  almost
amounted to a surprise inspection of the COTC. Up to the
last minute no one knew whether or not he would come.
The Mummery
(Continued from Page 2)
The inspection was carried on informally, and the inspecting officers were able to see the corps in
actual training exercises.
Oeneral Pearkes was extremely
pleased with the corps, and particularly impressed by the keenness
of both men and instructors, with
some of whom he spoke for a few
The COTC was especially interesting to Oeneral Pearkes, because
in 1928, when the corps was reorganized he was Oeneral Staff Officer in Victoria.
Ha suggests that the COTC
should have more equipment, and
promises to use his influence in
that direction. He also suggests
the corps should be given battle
training, and intends to send demonstration platoons to the campus
in the near future, to give the
corps some instruction in more
specialised training.
Oeneral Pearkes waa accompanied by Colonel W. A. Sparling,
Commanding Officer of tiie 89th
Infantry Brigade, to which, although it is not actually a part,
the COTC is attached for administration purposes, by Major F. H.

Next Friday
• ARTSMEN Class elections are to be held in

the purpose of electing presidents, secretary-treasurers,
and athletic representatives.
This was announced by Hugh
Ritchie, president of the Arts
Undergrade, at a meeting of the
Artsmen "vice-presidents" just before the snake parade.
"Vice-presidents" are therefore
officially affiliated with the Arts
Undergrad Society. Both Hugh
Ritchie and John Carson addressed
the gathering. They praised the
spirit of the now Artsman but nat-
urally enough disapproved of the
battling. *
John Carson pointed out that the
sympathies of tiie woman are with
the Artsman but that they could
not take part In the battles for
obvious reasons. He suggested
that possibly soma other form of
contest could take place between
Artsmen and Sciencemen without
the loss of pants, sweaters, and
other personal articles of clothing.
Arrangements are being made
for a freshman smoker to be held
after the victor of fights is pronounced. Artsmen are still confident as to the eventual outcome.

UBC Triumphs In Both Homecoming Games Sat.
Narod Torpedoes
Navy Team By
Scoring 11 Points
•   THE VARSITY English Rugby team certainly upheld
the old college tradition in the first half of Homecoming
sport parade by defeating the Navy team last Saturday afternoon in the Stadium by a score of 20-0.
Led by Captain Al Narod, Varsity had a big edge over
the Navy from the opening whistle until the dying seconds
of the game. Playing seven man scrum instead of the customary eight, and using the extra man in the three-quarter
line, our team was far superior in the scrum and the three-
quarter line.
The game got under way immediately after Chancellor McKechnie
kicked off. Les Coombes, captain
of the Navy team, led the sailors

pushed back. Several times in the
first half, the Navy got within

to be able to put on the finishing
About ten minutes after the opening whistle, Sailor Fraser was
tackled and had to.be removed
from the game, leaving the Navy
one man short. While the Varsity
three-quarter seemed to fall apart

began to tell.

Intra-Mural Programme
Shows Great Support
•   THE MEN'S intramural programme is well under way
this year with approximately 24 teams   competing   in
events ranging from Ping Pong to Swimming.
Here are a few facts which show
the numerical strength of this
popular organization. Last week
over 100 men competed in 10 volleyball games and 6 touch-football
games. This week it is estimated
that over 125 men will be playing
for their respective teams. And on
the following week, from November 9 to 14, approximately 500 men
will be entered in events. Thir
large number is owing to the running of the Cross Country Event.
In other words, one man out of
every four men on the campus
will be playing some organized
sport during that week—an amazing fact, isn't it?
Regarding the Cross Country, let
it be noted that all entrants unattached and all intramural representatives must have their entries
in Mr. Van Vliet's office on Friday,
November 6th. Each intra team is
to be represented by 7 men.
Now is the time for all Table
Tennis experts to start practicing
up for the big Meet which will be
held in either the Gym or the Armouries in the near future. Last
year, it will be remembered, that
Tom Keenlyside, brother of the
Canadian Champs, and George
Rush won the event. They will in
all probability be the men to beat
this year.
Next meeting of the Men's in-
wooden Score Board, 6 feet by 3
feet, will be erected In the Gym,
which will show the day to day
changes in the intramural competition, and also the League standings at a glance.
he next meeting of the Men's in-
tramurral league will be held in
the Training Room of the Gym on
Friday at 3:30. All team reps must
be present.
The first round of the Touch
Football event was run oil last
week. Nu Sigma beat S.G.H.; the

UBC Inter-
Medes Lose
First Game
e THE UBC Inter A team emulated their league rivals on the
campus, ye Frosh, by going down
to defeat last Thursday at King
Edward. Their conquerors in this
unfortunate episode, were a comparatively unknown team from
New Westminster going by the
handle of Gregory Price. Un-
kown, or not, the Westminster
boys adminstered a rather thorough 33-21 white-washing to our
However, (and here it comes,
friends), Varsity has some excuse
for their showing. The boys are
able to practice only once a week
and the team was organized only
three week3 ago. Any way you
figure it, three practices is the result. Since all Varsity teams play
system ball (believe it or not), it
can be readily seen that three
practices probably won't be enough
to fit the boys into the system, and
their first few games will not be
very brilliant examples of cohesion.
At that, though, there were times
when Varsity did show flashes of
their potential playing form. At
the beginning of the third quarter,
the team began to roll and pumped
in nine straight points to go out In
front 17-14. They then either, because of over-confidence or over-
cautiousness, allowed their offense
and defence to become disorganized. The Gregory-Prices, who possess plenty of shooting skill, took
advantage of this unhappy situation to run in nineteen pointa to
Varsity's four.
Although Varsity was decidedly
outclassed Thursday night, they
showed enough talent of a high
calibre to hearten their supporters.
When the team gets a few games
under its collective belt, they
should give the other teams in the
league plenty of trouble. As mentioned before, Varsity plays system ball once they get accustomed
to their system, they should begin
to click.

it has received the official sanction to be declared a major sport.
For those returning after several
years absence, this game Is strange
to them; it's new to them; they're
used to the English style.
Undoubtedly, the Campus interest is centred upon the American
game, but Homecoming Week is not
for tho benefit of the Undergrads,
who should take secondary place,
not a primary position, in the programme.

The other night, when the members of the Pub were in the Composing Room of the Press Office,
Tom Campbell, Alumni President,
walked in to give us the once over.
While we were putting the page
together, he happened to pick up
a lithographed picture and asked
who it was. Bill Gait said, "That's
Mack Buck." "Oh, so that's Paul's
brother." Well, his reply floored
us; poor Mack Buck, he's just i
has been now.

For five years, Mack Buck has
been working night and day for
this institution, star of many a
game, backbone of the Alma Mater
Society, and then his young brother has to come along In the space
of three short years to receive
a compliment such that ftjack is
Paul Buck's brother.

Watching last week's Pep Meet,
I thought that even though it wasn't as good a calibre as has been
seen around these parts, nevertheless the Cheer leadering section
sure has got something on the ball
—especially that little thing in the
red sweater.
Students Trounce
Boeing Outfit 26-6
For Second Win
•   THE UNIVERSITY'S Thunderbird American football
team ran up their second victory of the season in the feature attraction of the annual Homecoming ceremonies, downing the highly rated Boeings outfit 26 to 6.
The stands were packed with returning grads of former
years, many of them in the uniforms of the three branches of
the services, and also the undergrad members of the COTC.
The students   battled  on   even
terms with the. airmen until half
time when the score read 6 all,
but after the breather they walked away, running up three touchdowns without a reply.
The first touchdown came on the
first play after the quarter when
Phil Guman charged through center from the Boeing fifteen. The
attempted convert was wild.
Boeings soon came back after a
35 yard pass from. Krlsko to Wax-
stein, brought the ball to the Varsity 12. Waxtein moved the ball
up to the 3 and on the next play
Krlsko crossed the line to tie the
count at 8 all. The conversion
waa missed.
Boeings came close to scoring
again in the third quarter but a
strong student line kept them out.
Waxsteln then tried for a field goal
but It wss blocked and the students took over the play on their
own one yard line.
In two plays they had moved up
tee canter strips and a Bold to
Islaub pass oainblnailon sat the
ball on the Boeing N. PhU Omasa
on the next play crossed the gem
Ihw standing up and a oonvandon
by Bald put the Birds in front
The students scored again in*
the third quarter on a pass from
Peacock to Coady from the Boeing 10 yard line. Coady was behind the goal line at the time.
Spud Murphy converted and the
Varsity squad moved out in front
20 to 6.
The nicest run of the day was
made by Doug Reid when he carried the ball from his own 20
own to the Boeing 40 but lt was
called back because of an offside.
Not to be dismayed by this the
Birds marched down the field
again and rung up the last touchdown of the day with Reid carry-
ing the ball over.
Best for the Boeing's on the
day's play were playing coach
Carl Krlsko, Terry Sypher from
Indiana, Sammy Waxsteln, Frank
Oolden and Bill Flaherty.
The Birds had several good men
among whom were Phil Ouman,
Doug Raid, Bob Peacock, Kan Islaub and Lionel Fournier. *
It haa duet boon announced that
Varsity will compote in a I game
league between Varsity. Boeings,
and the Army. It Is likely that
last Saturday's fame will oount as
the first tilt. This Is a big lm-
provement over tho preasat system In that it gives the teams
some objective to shoot for.
UBC Beats Varsity

• VARSITY STICK WEILDERS won their fourth game
last Friday at noon. Squeezing this game between lee-
tures necessitated playing a shorter time than'usual. Owing
to this UBC might have scored their first goal during a

whistle. The game was fairly even during the first half with
Varsity scoring only one.
__________________________ During the second period how
ever, Jean Handling and Nonie
Carruthers broke through for two
quick counters. UBC scored In
this half but the goal was disallowed because the ball had been
