Insurance Plan
No   Fee   Increase
Needed   To
By VALERIE HAIG-BROWN
Student Council Monday night approved a plan which
would provide full accident coverage for all students.
At present $3000 per year is    "•
allocated to cover athletic accidents only. A motion will be
put on the agenda of the fall
general meeting, asking students to approve an allocation
of fifty cents per student for
the plan. The plan will not
cause any fee increase.
To be eligible for coverage
under both the old and the new
proposed plan the student must
go directly to the University
Health Service if at all possible.
Exclusions and limitations
on the proposed plan include
dental treatment, except as the
result of accident to natural
teeth, eyeglasses, unscheduled
airline flights, skiing accidents
and maternity cases.
A deduction of $25 will be
made on claims arising from
accidents occurring at non-
AMS sponsored activities. This
clause would apply in such
cases as car accidents.
Expenses covered by this
plan include doctors, nurses,
drugs, hospital charges and surgical or medical fees.
The Accident Benefit Committee which consists of the
AMS treasurer, secretary, and
second member-at-large and
the presidents of WUS and
WAA, reserves the right to
postpone decision on the portion of any claim exceeding
$900 until the conclusion of
the current fiscal year.
This reservation is made in
case a number of large claims
arise. At present there Is a sur-

Quorum   Revisions
Approved By Council
Student Council Monday night approved constitutional
revisions which would provide for a quorum of 1000 students
or 15 percent of the enrollment and require 500 signatures da
petitions for special general meetings.
These and other proposed
amendments to the Alma Mater Society constitution will be
placed before the students at a
general meeting to be held
October 20.
PETITIONS
Vice-President Ron Longstaffe supported the increased
number of signatures for petitions saying 'It would discourage the calling of frivolous
general meetings'.
He was opposed by UCC representative Al Thackray, who
said, "It would be an unnecessary hardship to a small, honest
group to get that number of
signatures and it would not
stop a relatively large group
with a frivolous cause."
The quorum would be lowered from twenty percent Of
the student bedy to fifteen per*
cent or 1000, whichever is
higher. Vice • President Ron
Longstaffe stated, 'This quorum is high enough so that one
block cannot easily swing the
meeting and yet not too high
to be easily met."
A proposal was approved to
delete one section which provides that Council can amend
or disapprove proposed USC
constitutional amendments only
by unanimous vote.
VETO POWER
Council felt that this gave
USC unfair advantage over
other subsidiary organizations,
in that the USC representative
had a virtual power of veto. TBE UBYSSEY

Lost in the heated debate being carried on by UBC's Monday-morning quarterbacks as to whether Thunderbirds should
have tried for a single instead of a field-goal against' McGill
last Saturday is the fact that the largest crowd in UBC football history watched the game.
Not only was the crowd the largest, it was the most vociferous to attend a UBC football game in years. Never before
have the Pep Club's cheerleaders been able to get such a lusty
response from the student section.
We almost forgot another rather important fact—despite
overwhelming prediction to the contrary, Thunderbirds were
not trounced. They did not even lose.
When UBC travelled to Montreal last year for the second
playing of the Paraplegic Bowl game the same outcome was
predicted—'Thunderbirds would be dead ducks before the
powerful Redmen of McGill. Final score was 8-5 for McGill.
Those who make a habit out of predicting doom for our
football teams had their biggest field day before last year's
"Canadian Intercollegiate Championship Game," against University of Toronto Blues. What the Varsity Blues, Canada's
finest college team, were going to do to hapless UBC was too
horrible to contemplate. Final score was 5-3 for a greatly
relieved Toronto team.
All of which proves, if proof is needed, that the place for
this University to compete athletically is at the Canadian
intercollegiate level.
It is an old and well established fact that nobody, aside
from the coaches and players, gives a damn whether UBC
beats College of Puget Sound, or any other Evergreen Conference School, or not. Besides, although we may be expressing
a traitorous thought, we have never been capable of competing in the Evergreen Conference, we are not capable of it now,
and we never will be capable of it.
Last year an abortive attempt was made to set up a Western Intercollegiate Conference. Because of the way in which
the matter was poorly handled by all concerned, it is now lying
dormant.
The National Federation of Canadian University Students
Is the proper body to handle the matter. We would suggest
that the UBC delegation to the NFCUS conference in Edmonton next month propose that a Canada wide intercollegiate
athletic conference be set up under NFCUS auspices.
We think that such a Conference would be just the spur
that NFCUS needs to turn it into a truly united body of
Canadian university students. Nothing brings universities
closer together than competition, be it in athletics or blood
drives. And no body of university students could be farther
apart at the moment than the Canadian body.
In a few short years UBC could make the jump from a
whipping-boy in the insignificant Evergreen Conference to
a power in a very significant Canadian Intercollegiate Conference.
Socreds  Answer  Ames
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In the September 20th Issue of The Ubyssey, there appeared an article on the LUlooet
by-election decrying the present gdvernment of this province. Such a childish and hrimature
piece of writing 1 have not read in many a day! Not only does the author contradict himself throughout, but he nudces generalizations which are neither proven nor based on fact.
The author states that "Social Credit is winning too many elections for our own good."
Who he means when heapeaks of "our" is anybodies' guess. Perhaps he refers to one of tiie
old-line
He further states that "il yeu
want to look at the facts you
will soon discover that Social
Credit has done little else but
talk." At this point he gees oil
on a tangent about something
else ratter tten follow his own
suggestion of looking at the
facts.
i Let us therefore look at the
facts and see. what these so-
called ''snodthieft" have done
since they, were elected id June
1S52.
. 1. Is spending over $8$ million on education in this province for the current fiscal
year. Incidentally, this is an
amount greater than the whole
provincial budget of any year
up to 1047.
2. Increased the cost-of-living
bonus for old-age pensioners
to $15 a month. The only other
provinces in Canada that give
a cost of living bonus are Alberta and Saskatchewan, Al-
Iberta is $1S; Saskatchewan,
$2.50.
3. Equalized assessment of
land and improvements for
school tax purposes. This followed we recommendation of
practically all the reports ever
made in this province regarding the financing of education,
including the Cameron report.
' 4. Have launched a highway
program this year greater than
any other year In the history
of the province.
8. Placed hospital insurance
on a workable basis so that
whereas an average family paid
$39 per year in premiums before, that same family now pays
only about $15.
6. Have started construction
on the new Marpole Bridge at
a cost of about $9 million, with
little or no help from the Federal Government.
7. Gave to UBC a capital
grant of $10 million which has
been hailed by one university
professor as  the best capital
grant given to the university
in 85 years.
8. Are extending the POE
both north to the Peace River
and south to Vancouver so that
for the first time in over 80
years the* railway is showing
a profit.
8. Reduced   passenger
licenses by 10%.
car
10. Reduced the net debt Of
the province from $181 million
in February 2952 to- $189 million as at December 31, 1884.
These, and many meee.are
fasts which ne one aandeny;
least of all your feature edi*
tor.
The people of this province
no longer heed the generalisations, smears and worn-out
platitudes contained in your
article but rather are bent
on electing a body which believes in putting the business
ef the people first.
Yours truly,
M.  H. Smth. - Presdenx,
UBC Social Credit Club.
Sounding  Soat4
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I had hardly landed in Vancouver when words started
reaching me through some of
my trusted friends that some
careless talk is rampant on the
campus, especially in "high"
places about the way Alade
Akesode malhandled the Parliamentary Forum finance last
year, while its president.
It was my hope that either
the UCC or the Student Council would have done something
to protect my name. Apparently they do not regard it as being that important. But since
the mud-slingers would not remove their hoods, stand face
to face with their men, and get
their ties straightened up, I
could only seek a refuge in
your column.
The whole trouble started
last year, when some clay-
footed gods suddenly found
themselves in the shattering
and dazzling glow of lime-light.
They burst into our meeting,
bared their chests in an effort
to impress us with their new-
won status. Uneontrolably,
they moved a motion of non-
confidence in our treasurer
John Redekop, while he was
absent.
When the Lion himself
(John) appeared before the
general meeting with the most
elaborate details of the Foram
account, the same movers of
the non-confidence motion, became hoisted in their own petard. Nervously, they quickly
dropped the motion which
then seemed to have exploded
into red-hot fire-balls.
Shamed, unsatisfied and full
of revenge they forged ahead
in further conspiracy. Soon another motion was feverishly
sent to council advising that I
be disciplined. My very person,
conduct, even the cavities in
my teeth came under their unscrupulous attack.
They claimed that the forum's account was in the red,
only to show an alarming ignorance of the condition of the
clubs they were supposed to
lead. A check from Saskatchewan University brought the
forum out from bankruptcy to
undoubtable solvency. This
trump card invalidated their
charge that I was extravagant
in the entertainment of our
visitors during the year.
The council threw their motion back into their face, and
shamed once again, they hid
their head under some shallow
sand of regrets and apologies
like the oversized Nigerian ostriches. I thought thatwr.s the
end of it, but apparently they
are still out for more.
I will not here try to defend
all my conduct last year, as I
know I could not possibly
please everyone. I did try, and
lots of people worked very
hard with us to make last year
one of the Forum's best. It is
such people that will again
make this year even better.
Mr. Editor, I am a peace-
loving man, and I am looking
forward to a year of care-free,
easy-going life especially since
last Friday night. I am a peace*
loving man, and I cannot eat
anything tougher than a slice
of banana. All I hope to make
clear is that not a penny of
the Forum's money was misappropriated either by the
Treasurer or the President of
last year's forum. Neither the
council nor UCC ever intimated such a misdemeanour as
part of our actions, and more
important, the Forum ended the
year with a surplus. I might
be poor but I can still afford
some luxury of integrity.
As for those who remain un-
pleased, Mr. Editor, I can only
say I am a peace-loving man,
and I am enjoying my quiet
retirement.
Yours truly,
Alade Akesode IHE UBYSSEY    ~

RGMP Grades Down on
Erratic Sttidfent Parking
One hundred and sixty-seven parking tickets, all for first

One eccentric got a ticket
for parking ,on the sidewalk
on the south aide of Memorial
Road. This is an extreme example of the students' tendency
to park in any area not pro*
tected by "no parking" signs.
Students should park in de*
signated areas only unless they
want their names recorded on
pink and blue in.the comptroller's office.
Coed Booklet
Women's Undergraduate Society this year printed a smell
booklet of information for first

The book contains information for the newcomers on WUS

In Swap-Homes Idea
Vancouverite, Mrs. Ann Kania has an idea.
She calls it "swapping homes:" a student coming to UBC
from a university-town such as Edmonton would simply swap
homes with a student from Vancouver. No money would be
involved.
Mrs. Kania developed this
plan three years ago when her
daughter, who planned to attend the University of Toronto,
had a difficult time finding
accommodation. She advertised in Toronto newspapers
to locate a Torontonian under
similar circumstances who
would be willing to exchange
homes.
'I received replies from several people who offered homes,
but that was not what I wanted," she said.
Although her daughter is no
longer looking for a "home"
in Toronto, Mrs. Kania has continued to push her idea.
r For the past three years
she has directed a volley of
letters to leading newspapers
in Canada. "Many were published and I received some
answers from interested
people particularly students."
she said.
She has also conferred with
leaders of service clubs, university officials and anyone
else willing to listen to her
plan. "The YMCA people were
all for the idea, but said the
plan would have to be spearheaded by universities," she
stated.
Mrs. Kania still writes letters
to newspapers and discusses
"swapping homes" with interested parties, but she feels "I
can't do it all on my own."
"If the idea was ever properly organized, it would have
to be done by -a service club
or university," she said.
"If two students would
swap homes, it would make
others sufficiently interested
to carry on the idea on a
larger scale."
Mrs. Kania's investigations
have taken her beyond Canada. She says the idea has
proved itself in. EuxApe .especially in England and Swit-
serland. "If it works there
where money and language
barriers are involved I can't
understand why li won't
work in Canada." she said.
Thinking perhaps Canadians
were a little "stodgy," Mrs.
Kania communicated with Americans. They replied that they
didn't think there was enough
movement between Canada and
the States to warrant such an
exchange of homes.
Mrs. Kania disagrees with
this. "The plan is designed to
stimulate movement of students
between provinces and even
countries."
Mrs. Kania, who lives at
4585 Bellevue, can be reached
at Alma 1579. She wants anyone interested in the idea of
"swapping homes" to get in
touch with her.

plus of $6185 which can be
drawn on in such a case. Allocation under these circumstances would be on a pro-rata
basis.
Coverage under the insurance
plan would be from three days
prior to the student's arrival
on the campus until three days
after his departure. Coverage
Includes vacation periods.
If a student withdraws from
school, coverage would cease
three days after his departure.
The insurance is of a secondary nature and should a student be eligible for reimbursement from any other source he
could not make claim to the
Accident Benefit Committee.
Consideration is being given
to the possibility of including
skiing accidents. It is expected
that claims would be accepted
and held for consideration at
the end of the fiscal year. Payments would be made on a pro
rata basis depending on the
surplus.
If the insurance scheme is
accepted by the students it
would be retroactive to the beginning of the term. AMS
Treasurer Geoff Conway stated that he would be glad to
receive comments or questions.
If the scheme proves satisfactory there is a possibility
of extending coverage to sickness insurance.
By DON JABOUR
The infamous cup of caf coffee ls finally going to put its
"flavourless" reputation on the
Une.
On Sept. 11 a panel of experts will test-taste innumerable brews prepared by the
Brock's Home Kitchen. Each
cup of coffee will be made to
a different strength in the
Brock's coffee urns, and panelists will be asked to comment
on the flavour and "enjoy-
ability" of each brew.
The decision to hold such an
experiment was made by Food
Services Committee head, Miss
Ruth Blair who has decided to
find out "exactly what students
want in their cup of coffee".
For as long as anyone can remember, UBC coffee has been
the object of criticism, and in
order to glean something constructive from these complaints
Miss Blair has decided to hold
this scientific survey.
So that eve/y body will be
able to voice an opinion, the
testing panel will be made
up ef about twelve students,
four faculty members, and
four Feed Services Dieticians. Eaeh will be given
four tialabelied cups ei eel*
fee and asked to compare
flavour and strength. The
brew receiving majority approval will then become the
new Unproved caf preduet.
TESTINO
One week later, the panel
will again sit, this time to test
various blends of coffee, supplied by Dickson Importing
Co. Ltd.
One week following that, the
panel will compare numerous
brands of coffee. The final result is hoped to be the right
brand of coffee brewed to the
strength that most people like
it.
In an interview Monday afternoon, Miss Blair explained
the Food Service's Method of
making coffee and cleaning the
urns and also discussed their
problems in serving 6,000 students who seem to desire food
and drink in sporadic bursts.
The call of the north was
once heard in Louisville Kentucky.

"These variables can never

explained that in the past they

of  caf coffee, but that also
brought complaints.

Rooting of Pool Controversy
Still Sore Point On Campus
By CAROLYN FORBES
Although the swimming pool
controversy is officially a dead
issue so far as Student Coun*
cil ls concerned, many stu*
dents would like to see some
definite action taken.
Of 15 people Interviewed by
The Ubyssey, only two answer*
ed "no" to the question "should
the swimming pool issue be
revived?" Opinion was divided
with the majority in favor of
roofing the present pool.
Here are the answers:
Marilyn Minshall. 2nd year
home economics: "I think that
it would be better to drop the
subject for the present. It's
useless to keep arguing about
it all the time and if they
haven't got the money they
can't do it."
Ted ElUs. 3rd year arts: "I
guess I'm like most students,
I haven't given much serious
though to it, but I certainly
think that we need a usable
swimming pool on the campus.
One that' can be used all year
round that is."
Paul Hasell. 8rd year arts:
"I think that if they do decide
to do something about it, and
I think they should, that they
should build.a smaller pool."
Bev Michell, 2nd arts: "I
agree with, Paul, but I think
that the present pool should
be roofed."
Bob Blackburn, 3rd year applied science: "The architects
say it can't be done, but if it
was at all possible, I think
that they should build a roof
on the present pool that would
cost as little as possible."
Pete Miller, 1st year arts:
"That's what they said they'd
do so why don't) they go ahead
and roof it."
Don DeCourcy. 3rd year-
mechanical engineering: "I
don't think they should drop
the subject, the pool is no good
to anybody open like that all
winter! Something should de«
finitely be done, and soon I
Mary Gallagher. Arts 2: "It
certainly should not be drop*
ped. We need a pool and I
think that building a smaller
one would be the best course.
Robert Rogers, arts 8: "I
don't think the student council
should drop the subject it
would be a good idea to roof
the one we already have."
Wayne Jennings, arts 8: "I
can't agree with Robert, I
think that they were wise to
drop it."
Barrio Lindsay, commerce 2i
"I sure dont think that it
should just be dropped, I was
quite disgusted to find out that
they had after the AMS had
all those talks last year. Why,
its no good to anyone like that.
I think it would be a better
idea to build a new one."
Larry Bum "I think that
(the present pool should be
roofed.

brick of ice cream from the
corner drugstore. He returned
10 minutes later.

of one of the World's
Greatest Entertainera
Today 3:45; 6:00; 8:15
The 1955 edition of the Thunderbirds gave 5000 fans a
pleasant surprise Saturday as they battled the McGill Redmen
to a scoreless tie in the third annual 3»arapengkr Bowl game.
Certainly, one of the most surprised people in the park was
Bird's head coach Frank Gnup, who admitted to youre truly on
Friday night that he did not know whet was going to happen,
but that he doubted that it would be pleasant.
This was .the first time that the game for • the massive Sir
t Winston Churchill Trophy has been played heue in Vancouver.
' It was also the first chance UBC students and fans had to seethe
Sir Winston Churchill Trophy. The trophy, valued at $1000, is
four and onchalf feet long and two and one half feet wide and
weighs about two hundred and fifty pounds. For the last two
months Henry Birks and Sons have keen exhibiting it across
Canada as one of sport's most beautiful-trophies. Perhaps the
best news of the day is that the game, was a success financially.
Athletic director Bus Phillips was confident that the revenue
from the game will be sufficient to cover all expenses and still
leave the Paraplegic Society a tidy euas. .This is a welcome
change because the game lost money last year when played at
Motaoft Stadium in .Montreal.
The football game itself was not what you would call outstanding or exciting. From the opening whistle it became apparent that the Redmen had the better offence. They were able
to rip big holes in the Birds line with "quick openers", Fullback
Riok Adrian, along with halfbacks Bob Hutchison and Bob Holland found enough room in the center of the line to ramble lor
five or six yards a try. This was largely due to the fact that the
Birds defensive tackles were not pinching in tight enough to
plug up the holes. The two factors that saved the day for UBC
- were 4he -bono»hoadod call*.of .MoGuT* highly-touted quarterback, Dick Carr, and some excellent defensive plays by the UBC
line- backs and halfbacks. Bruce Eagle, in.jpafticular, knocked
doavavfour or five, passes when the chips were down.
1   Gerry Nestman intercepted one of Carrte long third down
'"* passes deep in the Birds end zone and ran it out to the twenty-
, yard line. In general, it was the Birds desire and hustle that
enabled them to stay in the game. The boys, many of them playing their second game of football, certainly deserved all the
credit in the world for the way they fought throughout the game.
The Thunderbird offence was sputtering along on one cy-
• Under throughout most of the game. Inability to make and then
hold their blocks in the line cut the Birds running to the mini-
• mom. Quarterback Ian Stewart, who played a good game, just
couldn't seem to find the right combination of plays to spring
the Birds loose. The Redmen's pass defence was very good, and
UBC's pass receivers were just not fast enough to shake loose.
In general, it would appear that coaches Gnup and Hindmarch will have to concentrate on the center of the line, defen*
sive line and offensive blocking, and on the centre of the defensive line and offensive blocking. UBC's halfbacks, led by
Spence and Eagle did some nifty running, but they will not get
very far until the blocking improves.
Coach Sullivan was quite steamed up about the officiating. Mind you. the officiating was not the best, but it was
fairly consistent. Ex-pro. Ben Murphy, was called three times
for holding. Said he in a loud, clear voice: "I was only holding
once." We agree. Ronald, but don't forget that you were pushing with your hands the other two times.
Birds journey to Tacoma next weekend to play Pacific
Lutheran in their first league game. They will have to work hard
this week if they want to make a good showing. Coach Gnup
took in the Eastern Washington vs. Western Washington in Bellingham last Saturday night. He figures the Birds could improve
enough to win a few games. Don't forget Frank, that the other
teams will also Improve.

' BRUCE EAGLE, Thunderbird halfback, evades a McGill tackier and goes for one of
UBC's few long gains against the Redmen in the fourth annual Paraplegic Bowl Game

Rugger   Headed   For
Great Season of <Play<
Varsity's well-manned rugger teams began workouts last
Tuesday under the watchful eye of Varsity Coaches, Albert
Laithwaite and Max Howell in what looks to be another banner year.
The University's colours will
be worn by three teams, the
Varsity, Braves and Tomahawks. Bolstered by returnees
Ross Wright, Ted Hunt, Skip
McCarthey and Malcolm Anderson in the back line and
Derek Vallis, Alan Laird, Mike
Chambers, John Mulberry and
Dick Mcintosh in the scrum,
Varsity's McKechnie Cuppers
should be in top shape and
ready for action in about two
weeks. The season opens on
October 8 with Miller Cup play.
Skip McCarthy and Dick
Mcintosh were members of last
year's B.C. All-stars when they
met the Oxford Cambridge
touring team.
BOWL   BRIEFS
A brace of ruggermen from
last year's first team, Don
Spence and Bill Bice, will be
absent from rugby until after
Christmas, when they shed
their football gear.
Clive Neil and Bruno Gan-
dossi are being considered as
Varsity material, and Jack
Maxwell, Ken Powers and Tom
Anthony are also looking for
somebody's spot on that first
team.
There are also some promising frosh, such as St. George's
Peter Tynan coming up who
will help Braves in their bid
to retain tht Bell-Irving cup.
Practices are Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday behind the
Memorial Gym at 12.30.

Win   Recorded   In   Mile   Race
By MIKE GLASPIE
The biggest thrill for most
of the UBC partisans was seeing Birds mile relay team race
to any easy win over McGiU's
best after overcoming an early
Redmen lead. UBC trackmen
combining to make the half-
time show such a success were
Allen Hale, Warner Fredricks,
Jack Maxwell, and Doug Clement.
ep ep ep
* The tie was a moral victory
for Frank Gnup who in just
one week since the Cub game
has transformed his Birds into
at least a "respectable" club
with a fair running game, good
pass defense, and an improved
line.
*r        *r        *r*
When Bird lineman Sivert
Ericksen hobbled off to the
dressing room with a leg injury
in the first quarter, it was the
soccer squad that had the most
* to lose as the former Pacific
Co88* leaguer is being counted
on as one of the stars for the
soccer Birds.
9ft 9f> 9ft
What may have cost Birds a
win was Ian Stewart's fourth
quarter injury. In the final
minute with third down on the
McGill 30, Frank Gnup was
forced to go for a field goal
with his booming punter unavailable for a possible rouge
attempt.
9f> 9f, 9f,
Wonder what Larry Sullivan
had to say to Carr for twice
electing not to settle for a field
goal or rouge on third down
deep in Bird territory late in
the game. The* American star
had trouble with thc three
down concept of the Canadian
game.
-"   9f> 9ft 9ft
Ian Stewart brought a gasp
from the Bird faithful in the
third quarter when with third
and two on his own thirty yard
stripe he decided to run for it.
Kept the ball himself and made
the first down with a yard to
spare.
ep ep ep
Rugger captain Bob Morford, drafted by Gnup to do
the kicking, batted one for two
in his only appearances. His
game opening kick-off was a
beauty but the fourth quarter
field goal attempt left a lot to
be desired.
.f. if. >f.
The heat of the game produced many frayed tempers
with the referees seeming to
take a condescending view of
the proceedings until Bob Hom-
ola was given the gate in the
third quarter. After that tempers were held in check.
^fi 9f 9f,
If McGill is 75 percent improved over last season as
coach Sullivan claims, where
does that leave the '54 Thunderbirds who dropped an 8-5
call to last year's Redmen in
Montreal? That would be one
contest I'm glad I didn't have
to suffer through.
throughout, but the referees
and their red hankies were the
evening factor. No less than
four timesr were > the Redmen
driven back with 15-yard penalties when inside the Thunderbird 20-yard marker and marching to paydirt. Both coaches
had plenty to say about the officiating but for different reasons.
THUNDERBIRDS PRAISED
Although outclassed by the
Redmen in every department
including penalties, it was
Frank Gnup and his underdog
Thunderbirds that came in for
most of the praise. A stubborn
defensive line bulwarked by
Jerry O'Flanagan, who played
a whale of a game, and an excellent pass defending secondary led by Bruce Eagles, the
outstanding player on the field,
and Jerry Nestman, gave up
little important yardage to tiie
McGill offensive Unit,
Dick Carr, the highly publicized McGill quarterback by
way of Columbia University,
did not live up to his press clippings and was quite a disappointment.
Although    handicapped    by
ing was far from outstanding
His passing average of one completion in ten attempts speaks
for itself. Carr also was criticized for his signal calling
which, as much as penalties
and the Bird defense, stalled
the Redmen offense.
McGill backs Bob Holland,
Rick Adrian, and Bob Hutchison picked up steady yardage
all afternoon but when they
drove into scoring territory,
Carr invariably took unsuccessfully to the airw attempting
field goals and rouges.
POOR BLOCKING
The Bird attack was hurt
by the poor blocking of the
willing but inexperienced line.
Don Spence, Jerry Nestman
and Bruce Eagles all went for
good gains but never were deep
in the Redmen's zone. The best
UBC scoring threat came late
in the fourth stanza when Bob
Morford attempted a 30-yard
field goal, but the pigskin slip*
ped off the side of his foot to
fall far short.
Quarterback Ian Stewart's
steady rXinting was one of the
key faetors in keeping the Birds
in the game. However, Stewart
had trouble moving his club
Offensively and it was not until
the ailing Roger Kronquist
came in to run the team in the
fourth quarter after Stewart
was injured that the Birds
made most of their yardage.
BIGGEST THREAT
The game's biggest scoring
threat came just as the final
period got underway. From
first and ten on the Bird's 25-
yard line, the Redmen moved
to the UBC 10 with a ten-yard
run and a Carr to Armstrong
swing pass. A line plunge went
for two yards and a Carr pass
was knocked down in the end
zone by Bruce Eagles to erase
the threat.
It was the only time McGill
was deep in Thunderbird territory without being saddled
with a penalty, usually of the
15-yard variety, withholding
the cause. Ex-pro Ron Murphy,
who should know better, was
the main offender.
Eagles saved the Gnupmen's
scalps on many other occasions,
batting down a good half dozen
Carr passes.
FAR FRONi*EXCITING
Although the contest was far
from exciting, the closeness of
the score1 made the struggle
interesting" to the large crowd
on hand, and what was more
important, provided the badly
needed financial aid to Canadian Paraplegic Association and
the Western Rehabilitation
Center. CAMERA CLV1 will meet
Tuesday noon in Arts 100 to
discuss the coming activities
of the term.
