 Eight Lovely Coeds Vie for Ball Title "Miss UBC

• THE SPACIOUS Commodore
ballroom will be decorated
with the Blue and Gold colors of
UBC for the Undergraduate formal, November 23. The formal is
definitely a University affair, not
a faculty dance.
Main event of the ball is the
selection of Miss U.B.C. from the
nominees of all faculties. The
queen of the ball will be chosen
from the following nominees: first
year, Jackie Robinson; second ycar
Dale Couglin; third ycar, Joan
Clarke; fourth >ear, Phyllis Ney;
Aggie, Joan Stevens; Nurses, Dolores Traer; Home Economics, Sylvia Dyson; and Commeice, Peggv
The candidates for this enviabl?
position will appear at a pep meet
to be held sometime before November 23rd.
The admission price to the ball
will be 83.00 a couple which includes the floor show and refreshments. All proceeds from the ball
will go to the War Aid Council.
This'is the last event of any importance on the UBC social calendar before the onset of the
Xmas exams. It is hoped by the
committee in charge of the Undergraduate Formal will help to relieve that sinking feeling which is
always felt before an exam.
Faculty spirit should supercede
sorority spirit in the campaign for
the choice of Miss UBC at th%
Undergraduate Formal, according
to Barbara Greene, heed of the
committee in charge of the campaign.
The committee is afraid that'
the competition will resolve itself
into an inter-sorority competition
instead of inter-faculty as was originally intended. The idea, they
say, is to choose Miss UBC—the
ideal co-ed not the ideal Miss Sorority.
The sorority queen will reign at
the Red Cross Ball, says Miss
Greene, so the faculty representative   should   receive   your   full
support at the Undergraduate Formal.
"You are choosing the girl you
would like to see as Miss UBC,
vote for your faculty representative not your sorority sister and
show that varsity faculty spirit on
this campus is not quite dead."
The rules for the Miss UBC campaign are as follows:
1. each candidate is allowed two
posters only, of the following sizes—28 Inches by 22 inches, and 22
inches by 14 inches.
2. paper for these posters is obtained at the AMS office.
3. posters may not be put up before Wednesday, November 15.

Dr. Maslow Sat Next to Dewey
Dewey Cautious, Polite,
Reserved at University
•   THOMAS E. DEWEY, Republican Presidential candidate
in today's United States elections, had as his class-mate
Professor A. P. Maslow, of the Philosophy Department.  In
fact, Dewey sat next to Dr. Maslow.!
Dr. Maslow had just come
from service in the Canadian
Army and still wore his uniform as contrasted to the
"immaculately dressed dandy", Tom Dewey. At this
time, the two students were
studying in Ann Arbor at the
University of Michigan.
Dewey had a /good baritone voice
and used It to good advantage. He
helped to pay his way through
college by singing solos In churches
at Ann Arbor.
Dr. Maslow says that although
Dewey "wasn't a particularly outstanding student nor did he display
any outstanding leadership qualities," he was, however, "a bright
student with a pleasant personality."
Dewey had to work hard while
he was at university as he was
taking many courses in preparation for his brilliant law career.
Although he was "sensational"
in his career, he was "cautious, reserved, and very polite" as a boy
just out of high school. Dr. Mas-
low says that, "energy and aggressiveness were personified in him
in a quiet way."
As to Dewey's physical stature,
Professor Maslow says that he was
"smally built and not particularly
interested in athletics."
Dr. Maslow told the Ubyssey that
while Dewey did not have an academic mind, he was "practically-
minded and very efficient."
Today on the World's Battlefronts
• ALLIED Supreme Headquarters, Paris, November 7—(BUP)
—A great tank battle was reported
raging today between counter-attacking armored forces and American spearheads in the Aachen
sector of Germany.
The Germans who recaptured the
town of Schmidt over the weekend
seem to be intent on also taking
the town of Vossenack whose fall
would isolate American forces between Vossenack and Schmidt.
O   MOSCOW, November 7-(BUP>
—Premier   Josef   Stalin   today
threw his weight behind an international    peace    organization—one
with an armed force ready to put
down any acts of aggression at
their outset.
In his speech on the 27th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution
Stalin hailed the unprecedented
unity of the United States, Russia
and Great B'ritain which he said
would survive the war.
He spoke with deep pride of the
blows being rained en Germany
by the Red Army but at the same
time he paid tribute to the Anglo-
American forces battling into the
Reich from the West. Stalin predicted that Soviet forces would
soon enter Berlin.
•   WITH   AMERICAN   Forces  in
Pacific, November 7—(BUP)—

• SPONSORED   by   the
International    Relations
Club, Mr. Basil Mathews,
professor at Union College
will address the students in
Arts 100 Wednesday November 8 at 12:30 noon.
This autumn Mr. Mathews joined
the faculty of Union College in
affiliation with this University, a
Professor of World Relations and
Practical Theology.
Mr. Mathews has had an interesting and varied career following the attainment of his Honours
degree in Modern History and Political Science from Oxford University. Although once a journalist in Fleet Street, London, his
life work has been that of author

He has been intimately connected with the League of Nations
and attended sessions of the Opium Commission as publicity chief.
From 1931 he was Professor of
World Relations at Boston University and following this, from
1939 to 1941 he was attached to
the British Ministry of Information.
As a foundation member of thc
Royal Institute of International
Affairs he has had access'to much
unpublished material and with
his world-wide background to
draw upon Mr. Mathews' talk
should prove to be of great value.

Introducing Council and the Basket
One of the most amazing things about
student government at this university is how
little the students know of their government.
A good many students cast their ballots in
the annual elections and then proceed to
forget what and whom they voted for. Others
don't even bother to cast their votes. Members of Students' Council often become
mythical creatures who move about in a
different atmosphere which other students
know little of and care even less. Their
function of representatives of the students
disappears with only the the contact of their
acquaintances to keep up the illusion. To
our mind a member of council should be a
student with one ear tuned to student opinion and the other to his own convictions
with his conscience on hand to achieve
balance. This, coupled with wide-spread
student knowledge of the functions of each
council member, would produce better
It will be one of the functions of The
Ubyssey this year to review student government, so that everyone will become familiar
with it, but before we do this we would like
to introduce members of council to their
2900 constituents. They are really quite
human, but if you don't want to meet them
you can stop here.
We will go around the council room
counter clockwise, beginning at what is
judged the most important spot, the president's chair. Council members, you know,
always sit at the same desks on meeting
nights. Among other things, it helps them
remember what they are.
Richard Mountford Bibbs, president of
the Alma Mater Society, runs council meetings with or without a gavel and usually
maintains his dignity despite the fact that he
continually overshoots the wastepaper
basket with his scraps of paper. The basket
is always placed under the opposite edge of
his desk, which does make it awkward. Serious, but constantly obsessed with a dry,
sober wit, Bibbs pushes minutes through the
book like nobody's business. You can blame
him for no small part of any council efficiency you might find.
Sharing the president's desk m the
capacity of secretary this year is "Cover-
Girl" Helen Morgan, whose weekly task is
translating councillors' language into English
and then phrasing it in complicated minute
language, which is an art in itself. Outside
of the fact that one night she took minutes
in her bare feet, Miss Morgan's only sin
against self-righteous council dignity is nodding slightly during a Bibbs' oration. She
doesn't bother with the basket.
George Edward Rush, president of the
Men's Athletic Association, trundles between
the gym and the Brock with the energy only
an athlete could have and on council maintains a> stoic attitude and a sly smile which
he blends with Reid-like politeness to get
all he can for men's athletics. For an athlete,
he has a poor basket average, but then he
is farther away.
Arriving back at the middle of the room
again we find, usually, Kenneth D. Creighton, who possesses a longer table, which
proves most valuable to lie down behind
when the discussion is not on money. When
a council member is so forgetful as to mention this topic, Creighton's ears prick up
and everybody's in for it. Mr. Creighton is
the Society's treasurer. His whole existence
is money-—our money—and he looks after
it with the care and precision of a master.
His worst habit is strolling about the room
during meetings, but we know he does this
so as to come near the basket and not be
shown up.
Barbara Helen Greene, president of the
Women's Undergraduate Society, who is
perhaps the most lively council member, has
developed the art of knitting and talking at
the same time to its highest degree. We
wonder that she doesn't someday move that
everybody purl two while she knits a club
budget. But to our amazement, she moves
a mean minute with ruthless efficiency and
runs WUS with the same quality. Disregards
the basket. *
Leslie Allan Raphael, pied beauty of
the council since he acquired red, up-swept
glasses to match his hair in both qualities,
is president of the Men's Undergraduate Society and council's master at the neatly-
turned phrase. Besides attempting to revive,
we prefer "recussitate", the Artsmen, Mr.
Raphael is responsible for that outrageous
offense against onomatopeia, the "Fall BaU".
An idealist fighting against an unconquerable tide, he begins great debates on council
policy which only end in the opening of the
flood gates. Not a bad basket average,
4 Gordon William Bertram, president of
the Literary and Scientific Executive, completes the line-up. At his job of looking
after the many campus clubs, he often reminds us of Mother Hen of bedtime stories
fame. He stoutly defends his clubs against
any encroachment, mothers their constitutions and on the side looks after the special
events program. A left-wing economist he
puts spice into monetary debates and is admittedly the best with the basket.
Now that you've met them you know
what you're up against. Our recommendation
is to get rid of that darn basket.

• WATCH OUT when you turn your

On last Hallowe'en, oh night of nights,
while listening to several noteworthy radio
programs, this came over the radio:
Great rousing fanfare:
Announcer, "The Vitamin X
show, sponsored by the Vitamins that make men out of
mice, starring Alan Aged."
Alan Aged: "Hello folks, did
you hear the one about the .
At this point a quartette
of singers broke into the program. The singers were
chosen for their ability to sing discordant
notes all together in harmony. They dashed
off a little rhyme sung to the tune of "The
Old Gray Mare Ain't What She Used to Be":
"The old gray mother, she ain't what she
used to be
She used to be a physical wrex
But now she's taking Vitamin X."
Followed up by a snappy little chorus
sung in fast-tempo rag-time to the tune of
a snatch from the William TeU Overture,
commonly  known as the Lone Stranger's
theme song:
"Vitamin X improves your sex,
Oh Vitamin X improves your sex
Vitamin X improves your sex
Daaa Da Daaaaa. Da da daaaaa"
Alan Aged: "Hello everyone.   Tonight
we are going to bring you OUR version of
that ancient masterpiece 'She Married a
Scienceman' or 'Mother Needs Bifocals'. The
scene opens in the Georgia, dug out, as
Mother—excuse me, she wasn't a mother
then—anyway, the scene opens . . . . "
Announcer: The scene opens at a typical
breakfast table of a typical American family.
Bill Smith, typical husband, and Mary
Smith, a typical wife, are seated at a typical
table taking tea, toast and toasties in a typical manner. All is quiet except for typical
slurps as typical Mary Smith eats her
toasties.  Bill Smith speaks:
"Oh, Mary dear, I'm not feeling very
good lately. Have you noticed?"
"Yes dear," says Mary Smith. "And I
know just the thing for you—Vitamin X
drops. They give you that extra dash of
energy you need these cold nights and
mornings. Vitamin X reaches to the roots
of your toenails—something no other Vitamin can do. It grows flexible toenails so
that you won't put holes in your socks.
Every housewife knows how much work
that saves in wartime when we can only get
three maids to look after this monstrous
three-room apartment. Yes, dear, you too
can grow flexible toenails. I'll get some Vitamin X drops at the corner drugstore today!"
Alan Aged: "Good night folks. This is
Alan Aged speaking for the makers of Vitamin X drops, bidding you goodnight; and
don't forget—Vitamin X, breeds beautiful
Here the quartette came back, but this
time it was a trio. One of them took too
much Vitamin X and had to go to a boy's
school until he recuperated.

• LANSING, Michigan, November 7—(UP)—Use of temporary dwelling units and expansible trailers to house
married veterans who want to re-enter colleges and universities is recommended by Dr. Eugene Elliott, state superintendent of public instruction.
At the conclusion of the
war, Elliott said thousands of
returning veterans, who already are married or will be,
plan to continue their education, but that shortage of
housing facilities will be a
serious problem.
Dr. Elliott proposed his solution
in a letter to Harold D. Smith,
national budget director, who
formerly served as Michigan Budget Chief.
The Michigan educator said
thousands of the government's
temporary dwelling units could be
moved onto college campuses to
house "GI Joes" who want to complete their education and not be
separated longer from their wives.
Since most of the housing units
already are equipped and have
heating and cooking facilities, only
sewer, water.and light connections
need be supplied, Dr. Elliott said.
90,000 MEN
Declaring that between 40,000 and
50,00 men will want to return to
college in Michigan after the war,
Dr. Elliott said: "I discovered that
many are already married and another large group contemplates
marriage at the end of the war.

Concert Orchestra
Plays November 10

• DES MOINES, Iowa, November
7—(UP)—Housing of GI Joe
nnd GI Jane when they trade their
barracks bags for blazers and sun-
tans for skirts and sweaters will
present a major problem to America's educational  institutions.
Thousands of World War II servicemen probably will return to
college after the peace is signed.
And when they do, they will bring
not only their books and lunches,
but also their wives.
President Virgil Hancher of the
Iowa State University says the
large increment ot returning soldiers to the country's colleges will
present an Immense housing problem on many campuses.
Prewar accommodations for students were almost entirely designed for single men and women,
but it now appears that housing
accommodations for married persons will have to be established.
"Provision for housing cannot be
escaped," Hancher said, "and is
one of the problems which must
have first consideration," Since it
will be more than a year or two
before additional housing facilities
would be ready tor occupancy,
Hancher pointed out, it will be
necessary for both college and
community to give thorough study
and thought to the kind and extent of housing accommodation
necessary. He suggested that such
additional housing facilities might
well be a part of a public works
The general opinion of college
and university administrators In
Iowa is that an increase of approximately 25 per cent in student
body above the highest prewar figure may be expected as the peak
load ln the immediate postwar
"It Is likely that a very considerable number of veterans returning to colleges and universities,
and to vocational-technical training, will be married and some, no
doubt, have started or achieved
families,'' Hancher said.
These collegiate families will
need "a supply of cheap but rather
good houses." Smaller communities
will find the problem a more serious one than the larger cities. The
Iowa University president viewed
as "rather appalling' the prospect
of young couples having to live in
basements, garrets and reconverted store buildings,
A suggestion made by Prof. P. H.
Elwood of Iowa State College recommended that large quantities of
houses may be obtained in such

England has returned to London after a tour of fighting fronts
in Belgium, and Holland.
Once, George Windsor—King of
England, and Emperor, of a domain
where the sun never sets—was only
a king.
Once, he was a symbol of the
glory of the past—an assurance of
stability in the future.
' Now, George Windsor is more
than a king. He is a man—a hero
loved and idolized by his English
It was during the awful days of
the blitz in London, when the
character of George Windsor became fully apparent to his people.
Many expected a king to look after
himself. There was no power to
bind a King of England to stay in
the bombed city of nightly terror.
Over Buckingham Palace the flag
< is always flying when the King Is
In   the   city.    And   thc   flag   flew
throughout the days and nights of
boaming explosives.
Every d;iy. George Windsor
rode through tho streets of London
—not in a bullet-proof car like the
dictators—but in an old-fashioned
limousine, with large glass windows.
In those days, glass was something to stay away from. The
king's advisors told him to stay oft"
the streets—especially at night. But
they were talking to a king. They
didn't realize they had to deal with
George Windsor.
Three times, Buckingham Palace
was hit by bombs. Soon the people
of the besieged, unhappy city began to turn to the Palace for confidence, faith and sympathy.
England  had  had   many   kings,
but few as real, human, and sympathetic as this man.
Once, when the Blitz was at its
height, whole blocks of the East
End in London were destroyed in
a single night.
One morning, after one of the
worst nights—the homeless, distracted people saw a big, black
limousine drive up. The King
stepped out, and walked through
the still-burning ruins. Calmly, he
dodged the falling bits of wreckage, and talked to the people, asking them questions, and offering
Along the sidewalk, a Cockney
watched the scene, and called out:
"You're a great King."
George Windsor turned, and
smiled, and called back.
"You're a great people."
Before that, news had seeped out
from the Palace—through gossiping
servants—that the King was observing rationing rules as religiously as any commoner.
There was little heat in the
Palace—and the King's diet was
one no American would care to
follow in;- long.
King George was born December
14th, 1895 at York Cottage, Sand-
ringham. After studying at Os-
born Naval Academy, he went to
sea, and later took part in the
Battle of Jutland. Through his
youth, George was known simply
as a studious fellow—quiet and
serious—who lacked the dramatic
personality, and appeal of his
brother Edward,
But in 1923, when he married the
pretty Lady Elizabeth—the Dainty
Duchess as she was called—the
people of England first discovered
George Windsor.
George and Elizabeth and their
lovely daughters became to the
people of England a symbol of the
old, traditional strength of Britain.
They were the ideal couple—a
steadying example of simple living,
of fine ideals and peaceful home-
life in a world that knew no rules,
and was spinning ever faster toward an undefined chaos.
Each Englishman—in whatever
walk of life—looked toward Buckingham Palace, and drew strength,
courage and assurance to see
through the awful days of 1940.
Now, George Windsor has just
completed   a   trip   to   the   Allied
Armies   fighting   in   Holland   and
Belgium, and this is just one more
act on the part of George Windsor
—King   of   England—to   show   his
people that their King is at their

Varsity Team Trounces Higbie Hoopsters
Thunderbirds, Thunderbees Tab Triumphs
• TWO MORE of Varsity's hoop
squads turned in decisive wins
in games at Varsity Gym Saturday
night. The Senior 'A' Thunderbirds ran over the Higbie Inter 'A'
entry into the upper division when
they completely outplayed the Mil-
tonmen 49-19.
As Coach Maury Van VUet was
not in town, Sandy Robertson took
over coaching duties and also managed to get on the floor himself.
The Higbie boys started off well
and at the end of the first quarter,
they were only one basket down.
It was 5-all when Art StUwell
swished a one-handed special to
put Varsity up.
In the second quarter, Sandy decided to let the second string boys
give'it a try, and the boys really
clicked. Ron Weber lead the attack netting nine of Varsity's 15
first-half points.
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
(or men on
• WHAT'S THE matter with the Thunderbirds? Right now that is the
sixty-four dollar question and nobody seems to be able to answer it
The trouble is that the answer is rather vital. In a little more
than a month they are to play a top-flight American college team, Oregon.
If they make a good showing it will quite probably mean that after the
war our chances to get into the Pacific Coast Conference will be on
the make. If we could get in, it would bring a great deal of prestige
to our city and to our university.
The way the team ls playing right now our prospects seem none too
bright. I spent a bitter hour on Saturday night watching them beat
Higbies. Certainly they won, but it is more appropriate to say that
Higbies lost. After all they are only an Inter "A" team and they were
beaten on height and checking. Varsity got most of their baskets by
sheer bull-work.
Of course the paradox is that, man for man, they outclass any
other team in the city by a margin that is almost laughable, but as a
team they look worse than our intermediate girls.
Why? Well everybody has their own theory. Some blame the coach,
some, a swell-headedness on the part of the players, some the system,
others, the manager, still others, certain members of the team, some the
almost complete lack of support by the student body. My own particular
theory is that the players are stale, in an unusual way perhaps, but still
From what I can gather both the team members and the coach
are trying to find a solution. I hope they etm. I also feel rather definitely
that they deserve more support from some of the students, but of course
that is true of all Varsity teams.
Meanwhile there is one bright spot on the horizon, the better the
team they play against, the better the Thunderbirds look. If nothing
else comes of it, let us at least hope that this will be enough to put
on a good show on December 17 and 18.

•   MAA, MEN's Athletic Association, what has become of thee?   For
several years the campus hath not heard from thee, nor hast thou
held meetings for thine members.
WAA, Women's Athletic Association, have several meetings each
term but still the MAA sit tight and hope that men students approve
of the way the MAA are running things.
WAD, Women's Athletic Directorate, has been approached by the
MAD, Men's Athletic Directorate, to change some parts of the WAD
constitution to make it parallel to the constitution of MAD.
WAA and WAD work hand in hand, the two constitutions are interrelated and democratic. Three members are elected to WAD through
the votes of members of WAA, which includes all women under-grads
on the campus.
The MAD is not democratic but is on the scale of a petty dictatorship,
with the majority of the executive appointed and not elected.
The women on the campus believe their constitution to be superior
to that of the men, in fact that the MAA does not exist in practice but
only in theory and also that the president of MAD is the only elected
member on the MAD executive.
WAA is having a meeting next week to change certain technicalities
but the women will not concede to the men to make their constitution
parallel to that of the WAD, we will compromise but we will not concede.

'Birds Held To 3-3 Draw
As Rowers Upset UBC
•   UPSETS HELD full sway at Brockton Point on Saturday
with the defeat of UBC by Rowing Club by a score of
7-5 and the holding of Varsity to 3-3 draw by Ex-Britannia.
The feature game of the after-        ——————_________
noon saw the mighty Thunderbirds
held in their efforts to increase
their league lead by the weaker
Ex-Britannia fifteen. Varsity
scored a try soon after the opening whistle blew on sparkling performances of the three-line. John
Wheeler missed the convert.
On the play, Tom McCusker,
brilliant wing three - quarter,
ploughed and plunged his way
through the Ex-Brits for a 50-
yard gain and at the last second
passed to forward Joe Pegues, who
went over from the 10. That was
only one of the many outstanding
plays that the high-stepping McCusker has made this year.
Just before the end of the half,
Bill Kinder knotted the count with
a fine boot on a penalty kick.
The teams battled from end to
end during the second half with
both squads coming close to the
pay-stripe on numerous occasions.
With five minutes remaining, the
'Birds received a penalty. Kinder
almost won the game for Ex-Britannia, the ball hitting the post.
The draw leaves Varsity in first
place with only a one point lead.
Gordie Morrison, star inside
three-quarter of last year's Frosh
team, visited his old teammates
in the dressing room between
Bob Croll, outstanding Freshman in Varsity's backfield, was
missing from lineup due to a parade in the afternoon. If he cannot
have his parade changed he will
leave a huge hole in the three
line to be filled.
In the opener, UBC outplayed
the Club right down to the wire
but were not able to pull out the
win. Their three line was clicking
nicely throughout but were repeatedly stopped by their heavier
The Red and White opened the
scoring after 10 minutes of the
first half had elapsed, when Lloyd
Williams passed to Bruce Cheine,
a recruit from Australia, and he
went over from 5 yards out. Jack
Wight, who earlier in the contest
had a chance to send the Clubbers
ahead on a penalty kick from 35
yards out, missed the convert from
very close range.
Shortly following this, Williams
put the Rowers further ahead with
a well-aimed field goal' from the
With the score at 7-0 against
them, the Blue and Gold fought
strenuously to get back into the
picture, pulling off brilliant runs
deep Into their opponents' territory. But they were greatly handicapped by the lack of an experienced and hard-kicking fullback.
The blame cannot be put on
Ross and Wilby, wno both tried
very hard at the difficult back-
field position, because the position
is entirely unfamiliar to them.
Gerry Lockhart topped off a
great comeback try with a very
nice touch but the whistle blew
immediately after Harry Kabush
converted with  a fine kick.

Both Varsity Roundball
Squads Lose Muddy Tilts
• VARSITY'S soccer squads came
up against some superior mud-
ducks on Saturday when they
dropped two games. At Renfrew
Park, the ExRichmond entry edged
the Blue and Gold 2-1 on a sloppy
muddy field. The players will remember two spectators, a couple
of pretty coeds sent by the courtesy of John Oliver.
Two changes were made in the
Varsity line up. George Gamble
filled in at right back and Laurie
Baker took over left wing for Earl
Woods who was sick.
All the.scoring took place in the
first half, with East Indians' Al
Ainsworth slipping one by goalie
Herb Smith for the first counter.
Varsity retaliated a few minutes
later on a hard rebound shot by
Fred Hole. But the foes were out
for blood, and In a mad rush down
the field, Russ Hendricks booted
a blooper under the bar to end the
The teams were too tired to press
the ball through the opposing lines
in  the second half, but the play
livened up near the end as Varsity
forwards went to work in earnest
to even the count. They peppered
the goal constantly for the final
five minutes, hitting everything except an opening.
Soccerites will practice today at
3:30 on the upper playing field in
preparation for a probable contest
between Varsity and UBC on Wednesday at noon.
Co-ed Hoopsters
Play Tonight In
Cagette League
• WOMEN* hoopsters get off to
a roaring start this week, with
three games scheduled for Varsity
teams in the Cagette League
Senior B's play at the Pro-Rec
gym Wednesday at 9:30 and at John
Oliver Friday at 7:30. Filled with
new spirit and enthusiasm by their
new coach John Prior, the B's are
all set to do better than make the
finals as they did last year.
Coach John, himself a UBC grad
and former Thunderbird, is doing
his best to "whip" the girls into
shape to represent the Alma Mater.
Experience coaching girls' teams
in the Interior stands him In good
stead, and it's evident that Mr.
Prior knows his stuff.
This year's Senior B line-up is
rather hazy, consisting of new material from city high schools and
Victoria College, plus a few of
last year's team including Audrey
McKim, Marge Watte Helen Matheson, and Mary Yorke.
Varsity Inter A's break fhe ice
Friday at 8:30, when they play their
first game at Ryerson.
Anything can happen when the
Inter A's play, as everyone learned
last year, and Friday's game will
probably be no exception.
Like last year's team, the A's are
young and inexperienced, but have
more than their share of energy
and enthusiasm.
