• If you were one of those who
went backstage after the Red
Cross Preview to congratulate Sid
Poulton for helping to put on a
good show, you probably noticed
that as far as the Varsity Dance
Orchestra was concerned, the show
wasn't over.  *      '  '
The curtain was down and the
Auditorium was empty, but the
orchestra was still playing. They
kept on playing for another half
hour, just for the fun of it. They
kept on playing because they
couldn't help themselves, because
they've got music In their blood,
because they get more fun out of
music   than   anything   else.
And because they enjoy their
music they're a success, for some
of their spirit carries over to the
people who listen to them play.
Even at rehearsals, the boys indulge In miniature jam sessions
ln between numbers, which Sid
has  a  hard   time  controlling.
Next year. Slcl Poulton expects
to have one of the best orchestras
In the city. Right now, he's getting a good share ot bookings
from outside organization s who
like   his   music.
"We don't stink anymore," is
how   Sid   modestly   puts   it.
Success Story
The story of the Varsity Dance
Orchestra, during its brief life of
a year and a half, is a story of
student success. Today the orchestra is a smooth-working unit with
a library of 500 musical arrangements, a private P.A. system of
its own and smart blue-and-gold
uniforms which will make their
appearance this week.
Last week something happened
which hurt the feelings of the boys
In Sid's Orchestra: When Sid approached the executive of Phrateres (famous for friendliness) and
asked to play at the coming co-ed
dance, he was informed that as far
as the young ladles on the Phrateres.' executive were concerned, he
wasn't "classy" enough or "formal"
enough. So Phrateres paid more
money and got someone else.
To Sid and his gang, this was
a set-back. Whether it detracts
from their "class" or not, the student musicians are still enjoying
their music, and showing it. They
just   can't   help   themselves.
Gil Clark
Much of the credit for the Varsity Dance Orchestra's success goea
to Gil Clark, a tall young schoolteacher, who brought his saxophone to the campus ln 1939 and
determined not to let It get rusty.
Gil conceived and formed the
Varsity Dance Orchestra, sold it
to the student council, and won a
tough fight against the all-powerful musicians' union to make It a
permanent  fixture on  the  campus.
All    the    arranging    is    done    by
three   of   the   gang:    Johnny   Flet-
chf-,    a    qiret    f- How,    who    plays
rcocio-     woor-ie     with     his     eyes

Suggest Brock Open
One Night "Weekly
For Club Meetings
e    Last night the Biological Discussion Club held a meeting
in Brock Hall.
The occasion is news because it marks the first time a
club has held a regular evening meeting in Brock Hall with
the intention of using the Hall as its permanent meeting place.
The   only   other   organization  to        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
use Brock Hall in the evening
since Christmas la the Varsity Military Band. Apart from this Bob
Bonner, L.S.E. president, has received three applications for the
use of the Hall or some part of
it this term, once for the Fraternity
Sing-Gong, once for the V.C.U.
Executive, and once from tho Ma-
mookr."   Piano   Duet.
In a letter to the Ubyssey, Pat
Blbba, secretary of the Historical
Society, has made a suggestion
concerning the evening use of tlie
Hall by Varsity  Clubs.
Suggestion
It is that Brock Hall should be
kept open only one or two nights
a week and on these nights till
11 o'clock. On these nights all
clubs on the campus that hold
evening meetings should co-operate  and hold  them at Brock Hall.
Since this would mean that at
least fifty students would be meeting at the Hall lt would be possible to arrange for catering and
thereby overcome the biggest
handicap of meeting there, that of
not having refreshments. Frank
Underhiil told the Ubyssey yesterday that he could supply refreshments at fifteen  cents per person.
Don Buckland, president of thc
Biological Discussion Club, when
told of the plan, heartily endorsed
It, while Dorothy Hlrd, member
oi the Munro Pre-Med Club, said
that that organization had decided
to hold its evening meetinga In
Brock Hall and was enthusiastic ln
her   support  of  a  Club   Night.
John Meredith, president of the
Historical Society, where the Idea
originated, expressed the hope that
all clubs -would consider the possibilities) and If they were in favour
would contact L.S.E. President Bob
Bonner.
Nominate

Four Days
Left To Buy
1940 Totem
4) The deadline is approaching rapidly.
Students have but four
days left in which to purchase their 1941 issue of the
Totem, Canada's greatest
yearbook.
Yesterday, the Totem Staff
launched, their annual, mammoth
sales week, and will continue to
take dollars down in the Caf until   Saturday  noon.
This is a special consideration to
students who cannot afford to pay
the complete cost of the books at
one time. In former years, undergraduates wero forced to pay the
full price, but under the new
system, students can deposit one
dollar down, thus reserving a copy
of the book, completing the payments when the book comes off
the presses.
Business Manager Tommy Meredith is quietly flooding the campus
with Totem matches, advertising
totem week, while Jim McCarry, in
charge of circulation, ls handling
sales   arrangements   in   the   Caf.
Meanwhile, the writing staff,
not content to rest on the laurels
garnered by last year's outfit, are
hard at work polishing off the layouts-, and writing their copy. Last
year's book, under the able guidance of Ozzie Durkin, received
high praises from the National
Scholastic Press Association, who
gave lt a  First  Class  Award.
The Totem was the only Canadian yearbook to be so lauded.
Visit the Caf or the Pub office
today, and reserve your copy of
tho newer, bigger, and better
Totem.

Musical Society Chorus Gets Into Swing
Of Rollicking "H.M.S. Pinafore'
.»
•   The    unusual   sight    of   a   Big
Block man trying to execute
the first few steps of a graceful
court dance; blood - curdling
scr.ams; beautiful girls handsome
heroes; and gay songs. That is
all part cf the scene as over 100
people swing Into rehearsals for
this year's Gilbert and Sullivan
operetta presentation of the Musical   Society.   "H.M.S.   Pinafore".
Dates for production of this
year's musical have been set for
Wednesday to Saturday, February
19 to 22. That leaves, the society
nearly a month to bring their production to their usual high standard.
Until February 13 students may
purchase tickets at the box office
at the front door of the auditorium. After that the tlck-ets will
be on sale at J. W. Kelly Piano
Company on Seymour. Tickets
are priced at 50c, 75c, and 91.00.
All proceeds are for the' Red Cross.
AU seats are reserved, an exchange ticket system Is necessary
and tickets purchased from members of the society will have to be
exchang-ed at the box office for
desired   reservations.
In the meantime rehearsals take
place every W-ednesdr-y in the
auditorium. At a typical rehearsnl
a  visitor  may   see   Director  E.   V.
Young smilingly demonstrating
the court dance with pretty leading lady Marjorie Usher; red-
haired Marlon Wishart teaching
the men of the cast how to do the
sailor's hornpipe; Professor Walter
Gage sitting at one side of the
stag,-., cracking jokes from time
to time; President Tom Robinson
watching In the batkground; business mnnager Fred Middleton
dancing   behind   stage.
Then comes the order "Girls fall
into groups with the men" and
the rehearsal falls into the traditional scheme always found In
the production of a top-rate
musical.

Greek Letter Ball
The Greek Letter Ball in aid of the
Alma Mater Red Cross fund was a great
success, and congratulations are due to all
those who helped to make it so. Organization was complete in every department so
that it turned out to be one of the best organized balls held on this campus for a long
time, as well as one of the most successful.
A  notable  feature  of  the  whole  thing
was the spirit behind it that made it so successful. This spirit of co-operation and
determination was the nearest thing to College spirit that has been seen on this campus
for some considerable time. Starting before
the pep meet, it grew and spread to a great
many organizations and individuals, and at
the dance itself, showed itself in the fun and
enthusiasm    of    the    evening,
Rural Leaders
The University is extending a welcome
this week to young men and women from
farming areas all over British Columbia as
they gather here for a few weeks training
that will help them to become leaders in
rural communities. They are in most cases
the ones who show the most promise in their
own districts and who will benefit the most
from courses such as they will receive here.
Though they are here for only a short
time, we should welcome them as fellow
students and make them feel that they have
a share in what the rest of us are gaining
from this institution. University students
from only a very small part, actually, of the
total population of the same age in the
province. When others gain the opportunity
to get something beyond the average, we
should do our best to help them ln every
way we can.
What about holding a special Mixer for
their benefit and inviting them all to come
and meet us?
Totem Week
' This is Totem Week. It is the last
chance for anyone to secure a 1940-41 Totem.
Only the number that'are reserved will be
printed, so that if anyone has not paid one
dollar in advance by the end of this week
to reserve a Totem, he will not be able to
get one under any circumstances.
This year is an interesting one. There
have been extra work and a certain amount
of strain, but there have also been amusing
and interesting events which all will want
to remember. This is definitely a "war"
year in a way that last year was not, and
the war theme wil play some part ln the
Annual ust as lt is playing a part in the life
of almost all students on the campus.
The only permanent record of this year
is to be found in the Totem. While the
Totem of last year won a first class award
in a contest in the United States, this year's
Totem staff believes that there is still plenty
of room for improvement. They are trying,
therefore, to make as many improvements
as possible so that this Totem will not be a
mere copy of preceding ones.
Those who are graduating should make
sure that they reserve Totems for themselves before the end of this week. Otherwise when they are looking back on college
days from the age of fifty or more, they will
greatly regret not having the pictures and
stories of all the activities they engaged in,
that are contained in the Totem.
Reserve your Totem now !
The   Mummery
.  .  .  by Jabez
The Letter of the Week:
The Editor,
Dear Sir,
The crushing success of the Pep Meet
last week has evoked an interesting scheme
by which the Faculty would have an opportunity to contribute to the Red Cross Fund.
The idea is that the Faculty should put
on a minstrel show.
Each student would be charged 50 cents
admission, and would be searched before
entering for any over-ripe vegetable or
citrus criticism that he might be carrying.
I  submit  an  outline  of  a  tentative program:
Black-Faced Profs
When the curtain rises, we see a line of
black-faced professors sitting cross-legged
on the floor. There is a crash of banjoes,
they jump up, lock arms, and swing into
that old Faculty favorite, "She Was Only
A Hangman's Daughter, But, Boy, Did She
Know The Ropes", with the Department of
Agriculture lowing suggestively in the
background.
When the booing dies down, President
Klinck flashes out for his trick bicycle-riding specialty. He immediately gets a flat
tire, and retires hastily for a meeting with
the Board of Governors.
Then there is some snappy dialogue between the end-men.
"Mr. Bones, why did the chicken cross
the road?" asks Prof. Gage, balancing a log-
table on his nose
Dr. Sedgewick wipes his glasses vigorously, puts them on his nose, and quips:
"That was no chicken, that was my
wife!"
"No, no, Dr. Sedgewick!" protests Prof.
Gage. "You're supposed to say 'To get to
the other side'."
"Are you inferring that I am incapable
of answering a simple question, Professor
Gage?" inquires Dr. Sedgewick testily.
This argument is interrupted by Dean
Bollert's rendition of "Ain't You Ashamed?"
with the Department of Agriculture lowing
suggestively in the background.
Then Colonel Shrum marches in with
four broken-down sergeants for their "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" number. The
sergeants sing "Practice Makes Perfect", but
their hearts aren't in it. Cadet enters carrying a large jar with the label: "Sample
N.C.O.'s Brain".    The jar is quite empty.
This delightful phantasy is broken up
by the Registrar running on to send out an
emergency call:
"If there is anybody in the audience
who knows how to fix a flat tire, will he
please report to President Klinck's office
at once?"
Bonxo Buchanan
The next act is advertised as "The Great
Bonzo", and features Dean Buchanan, with
Dr. Maclnnes holding up the applause sign.
The Dean's first trick is that of pulling rabbits out of a silk hat. He keeps on pulling
rabbits out of the hat until the stage is
covered with creatures. Exasperated, he
mops his brow, and, peering into the hat,
cries:
"What the devil is going on in there?"
Whereupon the hat explodes, and Dr.
Maclnnes changes into a book of German
lyrics.
Then there is some more witty dialogue
between the end-men.
"Mr. Bones, who was that lady I seen
you with last night?" askes Prof. Gage.
Dr. Sedgewick wipes his glasses vigorously, puts them on* his nose, and replies
archly:
"I refuse to answer personal, as well as
ungrammatlcal questions, Professor Gage!"
Tbe situation is saved by Professor Irv-
ing's "Indian Rain Dance", with Professor
Morsh beating out the rhythm on a stuffed
psychology student. This number is booed
off by the C.O.T.C. members of the audience, for reasons best known to themselves.
Would Wood?
The last specialty features Professor
Freddy Wood. To the piping of distant
flutes, and preceded by a bevy of the intoxicating Faculty Scarf Dancers, he is
borne in on a litter by twelve hungry-looking freshmen. Jumping down agilely, he
gives the freshmen a dirty look, whereupon
they fall down with horrible cries, and as
they lie writhing on the floor, he breaks
into that lovely ditty, "I'll Never Smile
Again", with the Department of Agriculture
lowing suggestively in the background.
The entire cast joins in for the grand
finale, a special arrangement of that old
Faculty favorite, "She Was Only A Scottish
Lassie, But, Boy, Could She Go Through
The Rye!"
Curtain.
Do you think this idea would be acceptable to the Faculty at large?

Dear  Stench,
No, The Faculty has never been seen
at large.

Spouts Ink
• "The question" remarked my
friend MacOregor, "is no longer 'WILL WE HAVE AN INK
FOUNTAIN AT U.B.C.?' but
•WHAT KIND OF INK WILL WE
HAVE?'."
I sat up bruising my head painfully against a crossbeam which
supported the underside of the
table. I cursed the man who designed the Georgian furniture and
metamorphosed from sus scrofulus
to plthencanthropus erectus. In
other words, I stood up.
"MacOregor," I sparkled, "here's
tp good old Ink."
* . *    *    *
• That   was   how   the   idea   was
born;   an   idea  which  will  see
fruition right here on our own
campus ln the shape of an INK
FOUNTAIN. *
An Ink Fountain is the answer
to 2600 students' prayers. Briefly,
it is simply an arrangement so that
when your pen runs dry, you just
pop over to the Ink Fountain and
tank  up.
It looks something like an ordinary fountain, only Instead of
water, It flows ink in spouts. I
went to see Dr. J. A. Crumb who
knows California pretty well, and
he says that the Students' Council
at Berkley put one up and that
Cal. students really use it a lot. I
chatted with Norman Free, who
has be-on doing post-grad work in
the south, and he mentioned that
undergraduates have built themselves ink, fountains at Eugene,
Ore., and Washington, and they're
working  fine.
A small sum is taken from a
student's Alma Mater fees to pay
for the supply of Ink.
* * • *
• My friend, MacOregor Mouthwash has given his wholehearted support. (That waa him
I quoted at the opening). He is
perhaps one of our lesser-known
undergraduates, but an authority
on almost everything.
"The question now," he repeated,
"is what kind of ink will we havo
In our fountain?"
"How about STINK or SQUINT
or one of those patent ones?" I
asked.
MacOregor   Ignored   the   parry.

Law Society
To Organize
Thursday
• The revival of U. B. C.'s now
defunct Law Society will take
place Thursday, 12:30, Arts 104, when
would-be-barristers will hear of
steps taken by Parliamentary Forum officials towards a link-up
with the B.C. Bar Association, according  to Arthur Foulks.
Armed with L.S.E. blessings, Law
Society organizers will proceed on
what was termed "an altogether
different basis from that of preceding years", with the establishment of a closely-knit association
between alumni who have gone
into law and undergraduate members of the proposed campus body.
All those Interested are asked
to attend this organization meeting.
LOST — Beige mottled Parker
fountain pen. Finder please return to Kay Farley or A.M.S. office
"It could be put up in the quad,"
he said, "and replace the ancient
plumbing they've  got  there  now."
New Plumbing
"There'd be no running out of
ink and having to take notes in
pencil,"  he said.
"Then w_ must make U.B.C.
'Ink-conscious' and plan a big
campaign," I said, rather earnestly.
"Inconsctous?" mused MacOregor,   not   really   concentrating.
I could see that MacGregor
Mouthwash, typical undergraduate
that he is, had don-.- all his big
thinking for the day, so I left him
to look for a few opinions around
the campus.
*    *    *    *
•   "Two   hundred   people   a   day
come and ask for ink," they
told me at the Library, "and we
haven't   got  it  to   give   them.
"Just a minute," they said as I
started    to    go,    "aren't     you     the
young   man   who    ".     I   wasn't
going to be a fall guy.    I lammed.
Some Job
I visualized the Ink Fountain of
the future, a smooth chromium
job, run by a trim co-ed, garbed
in an attractive blotting-paper ensemble. Not so practical for rainy
weather, but let it rain, I say.
Helps the farmers.
"Yea," she says, as I step up,
"will you have regular or ethyl?"
I take ethyl, and she fills my pen,
wipes it on her blotting paper
outfit.     Then   it   starts  to   rain.
Yes, I think this Ink Fountain
will be a good thing all right.
Heigh-ho,  Tin   Oods,  Tuum  Est.

EDITOR OF THE UBYSSEY,
Sir,
With surprise and disappointment I read ln the Ubyssey's curt
report that U.B.C.'s team Elspeth
Munrc, and Austin Delaney had
defeated the visitors from Saskatchewan in the McOoun Cup
Debate, January IT.
Surely an' event such as this
triumph for the Alma Mater rates
more than just five lines, tucked
away inconspicuously in a column,
entitled, "Saskatchewan Gains McGoun,  Eighth Win".
The editors show lack of a sense
of proportion in evaluating news
items. After all, the increasingly
keen interest of students ln public
speaking receives the encouragement of  the  press.
Sincerely,
Olive Meredith.
EDITOR OF THE UBYSSEY,
Dear Sir,
Through the medium of your
publication we wish to thank
publicly all those who so willingly
co-operated with us in making the
Red Cross Preview such a grand
success; Prof. Walter H. Oage, Sid
Poulton and his "Pol-acats", members of the chorus and Mr. Bill
Corey, the Faculty of Applied
Science, the Big Block Club, the
Mamooks, Tom Collins of the

THE    BEST    MILK   CHOCOLATE   MADE Tuesday, January 27th, 1941-

• Boy, that was sure some weekend. Josle was already going
to the Red Cross dance, so I applied at the date bureau, and
found a classy-looking babe, that
could sure shake a nvean leg. We
got along swell, for 'a blind date,
although usually I'm sort of careful about those things. I made
a hit with a box of Purdy's chocolates I sent her next day too.
Maybe I can hit up her old man
for a job, because 1 just bet he
couldn't resist those toothsome
morsels, from R. C. Purdy, 67S
Granville Sreet. Imagine the embarrassment of a rotund pubster
when down at press the other
night. An advertiser of the sub-
burban paper, printed there,-phoned, and asked for the editor. The
aforementioned pubstar turned,
and thinking he had the mouthpiece ot the phone covered, yelled,
"Say, here's another sucker on the
line." The irate subscriber hung
up, and had her husband, a big
brute of a man, call up for an explanation. The editor had to
pacify her by explaining that it
was one of the college boys, so
she   would   have   to   make   allow-
• With that Phrateres dance this
Thursday, which I hope Josle
ls going to ask me to, I'm getting
quite thrilled. She'd just better
get me a corsage, too. Th.y have
the snappiest little button-hole
flowers at the Point Orey Flower
Shop, 4420 W. 10th, AL. 0660, and
they'll leava Josle enough money
to buy me a hamburger afterwards. Now, maybe I'll be pretty
hungry at the end of the evening,
in spite of the swell eats that
Frank Underhiil is serving at the
dance, so, guess I'll order everything on the menu. After all the
people were mad at Mary Ann
last week, I think I'll play safe,
and not say anything—girls take
awful chances, don't they? But
have you heard the story of the
freshman brother of a football-
playing Phi Kap Slg, who had
looked from afar with adoring
eyes at a freshette, but was too
shy to speak to her. His pals decided to help the little romance
along and phoned and asked her
to the Rod Cross Ball, using his
name. Sh. accepted, but they
didn't tell him about lt, because
they heard that she had the
measles. The day they finally
told him about it, she turned up,
without tne measles. ' Being ln a
bit of a spot then, he phoned her
up, but she said that wasn't the
same voice, and wouldn't go. Just
think, a 'nice romance nipped in
the bud.

• Josle tells tne that Suzette, 880
Howe Street, has a brand new
shipment of pottery jewelry from
California. This i» the last that
may be obtained, as shipments
from California have been stopped.
There are the smartest little horses
and flowers, so Josie tells me,
made up Into necklaces and things.
There's nothing like a little liquid
refreshment, Is there? One of the
basketball girls who went to Kamloops last week got a proposal
from a soldier, who was "that
way". She apparently didn't accept, as she's back going to lectures and things. Suaette also has
a new lot of turbans In a well
selection of colours. They sure
have oomph. Now is the time to
buy these cute American styles,
Josle tells me, as there won't bo
any more shipments for a while.

Co-ed First Aid Classes Start Tuesday
Big Question:
Who To Ask
To Co-ed?
^ "Gee, Gertrude, I should
ask Joe, but Mike is so
cute, and Bill.is by far the
best dancer."
"I don't know whether to phone
him or just step up and ask him."
"What If he should refuse?"
"Lord! If he finds out I asked
seven others first."
These remarks typify the consternation that is rampant ln the
ranks of the Phrateres these days.
The reason for all this worry?
Thursday night is the night of
their annual formal. Now all the
sweet young things are faced with
the troubles usually belonging to
the superior sex.
Who to take. How to ask him.
Can I afford It all? Where am I
going to get transportation or is
he a good sport? Good enough to
ride a bus and smile? It's a good
thing it  only comes once a year.
The young ladles are now getting
an idea of what a young man Is
faced with all year long. Ya gotta
bo' subtle. You can't let the guy
think you really care. You can't
insist and you can't beat him into
submission. Boy! have they got
worries.
Heavens! Mike, I really haven't
a thing to wear. I wore that Blue
serge twice last month and its
positively   out."

Campus Heads Urge
Compulsory Course
^ First-aid classes for U.B.C. women will get underway
Tuesday, February 4, when Miss Margaret Kerr, nursing
prexy, will lead a group of about fifty, women on an eight-
week course leading to the St. John's first aid certificate,
from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Science 400.
Questioned   aa   to   plans   for   in- _______a______________i___________-_____i
creased women's war work, Dean
Mary Bollert states that names are
now being accepted for registration in the class, which will remain on a voluntary basis. Expressing her regret that it would
not be possible to Include every
woman ln th class, Dean Bollert
pointed out that: "We have no
such facilities as those possessed
by McOlll Unlverlsty for the training of six or seven hundred women. McOill ,with a large number
of medical and nursing Instructors,
ls in a position to undertake such
a move; we are not."
Those women who are trained
thla year, it is stated, will be used
as a nucleus for the training of a
much larger group next year; taking the part of demonstrators and
assistants to Miss Kerr. Women
taking Teacher Training and Social
Service courses are particularly
urged to attend this year's class,
which will consist of a one-hour
lecture and one hour of practical
work.
Student leaders, questioned as to
their opinion of McOill women's
war work plans, expressed disappointment over the lack of vol
untary co-operation so far offered
by local co-eds.
Lack Of Support
Ruth Wllaon, W.A.A. prealdent—
"Compulsory training — after the
McOlll plan—seems to me to be a
fair approach to this problem. As
it Is now, any real emergency ln
this city would find us practically
helpless."
Bob Bonner, L.S.E. prexy —
"U.B.C. women might well be assigned to regular courses — say
about three hours a week In such
courses as first aid, motor mechanics, and ambulance driving. I
understand that a similar course
in' Saskatchewan ls meeting -with
great success.
"If the class ls to be limited by
lack of instructors, lt might be
possible to draw on those who are
undertaking similar work downtown."
Those women registering for the
class now being formed, will be
asked to pay a small fee, not exceeding two dollars, which will be
used to cover the costs of medical
supplies used In the course.

Wednesday's Game
Playoff Prelude
Thunderbird .
VARSITY 52    —   ADANACS 32
NEXT GAME: WED., 8:30—VARSITYvs. MAPLE LEAFS
S^ After boosting their league leadership to ten wins over
two losses last Friday night when they defeated Adanacs
52—32 in New Westminster, the high-flying Thunderbirds
will step out this Wednesday to take on the ever-dangerous
second place Maple Leafs in the campus gym at 8:30.
A win tomorow for either the former champs or Varsity
is important. The students, by winning this one, will have
a stronger grasp on chances for the playoff bye. The Leafs,
if they win, will be within striking distance of first place.
Anyway you look at lt, the game
should prove to b. a natural. Last
time that the two teams tangled,
way back in November. Varsity
won in overtime. Ever since, the
Leafs have been gunning for revenge and tomorrow night they
get their first chance. Moreover,
the game is a cinch as a preview
for th. playoffs.
Scoring Race
The Leafs are hard on the heels
of the campus cagers not only for
loop leadership but also for top
scoring honours. Pat Flynn, Joe
Ross and Jim Scott are bunched together in front and all three will
be out to further their team's and
their own Interests, when the game
time rolls around Wednesday
nigh:
If th-a collegians play like they
did last Friday night when they
handed the New Westminster
team, and Ran Mathison a beating,
they shouldn't have trouble with
the Leafs. And if Pat Flynn starts
dropping them ln again, like he
did against Adanacs, for a total
of 17 points, Joe Ross will have a
time keeping up to him.
In the game last Saturday night
the student hoopla hopes put on
a second half drive that gave them
the game  and their  tenth  win.
The third quarter saw the students net a total of 12 points before the New Westminster's became aware of tho splurge. Third
quarter score  was 36—24.
Varsity kept the lead and emerged the winners with a twenty
point lead.

VARSITY 2 — ARMY 4
S^ The Army employed
some fifth columnists
against Varsity's hockey
forces in a Kingcrest loop
fixture last Friday night,
playing four former prairie
stars and winning the contest by a 4—2 count.
These players, Jensen, McCrack-
en, Tumblyn, and Pahal, provided
the necessary power which the
soldier squad has been lacking,
the prairie slickers were in on
nearly every play and bore most
of the defensive work on their
burly shoulders.
Outplayed for the most of the
game, the Blue and Gold put on
a driving- finish and scored the
only two goals in the third frame.
Down four goals as they entered
the final period, the campus kids
showed their real worth In the
last  set-to.
Goals by Stevenson and Taylor
put Varsity within firing distance
of the khaki clad sextette, but

Over Senior B's
COPS 42   —    VARSITY 23
•   Overpowered by a giant Police
team, the Senior Bees dropped
a   42—23  decision   at  the  King  Ed
gym  on  Thursday night.
The Coppers were just too big
for the Blue and Gold boys and
they didn't have a chance with any
of the play around the basket,

Book Drive .
e Good books for the army is the
object of a drive by the
I.O.D.E. Students are asked to
sacrifice good quality reading
material for the soldiers, and
books should be neither heavy nor
ridiculous.
As this drive ls for the particular benefit of the soldiers at Prince
Rupert, It Is felt that students will
be ready to help.
The Library has consented to collect these books, and all donations
should be left at the desk of the
Library  office,   downstairs.
FOUND—A sum of money in the
Science Building on Friday. Please
phone KErr. 189SL, between 5:30
and 6:30 p.m.

MENT:    We   understand   that
Varsity gals entertained some gorgeous co-eda from Western Washington here at a "play-day" Saturday afternoon. That's all we do
know, however, as the affair was
ultra-exclusive. When we tried
to get Into the gym, on purely professional business, \-fe were told
to scram by Miss Moore, so we
couldn't get any news. Sorry.

• Saturday night five co-eds won
a decisive victory over a Kamloops team with a score of 31—11.
The team was almost forced to play
with four when the high-scoring
Jean Thomson went oyer her ankle
about half-time. She carried on,
however, and carried on well managing to collect 7 of her 15 points
In the second half on a taped foot.
The team reports that they had a
good time, and that the cheering
for Varsity was more enthusiastic
than any they have heard in their
own gym.
The victorious five: Wilson 9,
Thomson 15, Bradley 1. Palmer 6,
McWIlllams.
The hockey girls consider themselves fortunate that their game
was cancelled'on Saturday because
of the weather. Maybe they'll get
in a few good practices before they
have to play Pro-Rec 1. The team
now holds third spot with Pro-
Rec and Ex-Kits ahead of them.
