 Council   Prepared To  Defend  Policy At A. M. S. Meeting
41 Student Council broke
a three day period of
silence regarding the charges made in Tuesday's Ubyssey and the rumours prevalent on the campus intimating Council inefficiency, at
5:15 last evening with a bulletin to the Ubyssey.
Council limited itself to answering only the charges made ln tho
editorials and claims that the reasons for Mr. Horn's resignation
are purely a matter between Mr.
Horn   and   itself.
Refusing to answer any further
charges, Council claimed that no
further direct charges had been
made. It would, It stated, bs prepared to defend Its policy at tho
Alma Mater Society meeting next
Wednesday,      and      answer      any

charges directed  at it from members of the  A.M.S.
Meanwhile Evan ap Roberts, ex-
councillor who was one of those
responsible or circulating the petition calling for an A.M.S. meeting, said that the charges were
being formulated but would not
be pi-esented till the A.M.S. meeting.
Included with the bulletin was a
copy of a resolution passed at an
extraordinary Council m e e ting
held Tuesday, February 6, which
called for the "appointment of a
committee consisting of three
undergraduates, namely Arthur
Fouks, Owen Sheffield, and John
Brynelsen; and three members of
the Alumni of the A.M.S., namely
Jay Gould, John Pearson and Jack
Stevenson, together with the president of Student ouncll (ex-offlclo);
and that lt be empowered to investigate   the  powers,  organizalon,
and administration of student government of the University of Brit-
ishlsh Columbia, and that the findings of that comittee be submitted
to  the Student  Council."
Full text of the bulletin submitted by Council appears below:
"In criticism of the editorial attack upon the Students' Council
contained in Tuesday's issue of
the Ubyssey, three points must
b.  noted:
"The first la that the attack was
made wlhout the knowledge of
Council  or Mr.   Horn.
"Secondly, criticism of the action directed toward the Council

express   recommendation.
"Thirdly, that the Students'
Council concur with Mr. Horn's
opinion that his reasons for leaving are purely a matter between
Students'   Council  and  Mr.  Horn.
"This statement has been offered
with th-3 complete knowledge of
Mr. Horn and with his full agreement."
A late addition to Council'-
bulletin stated that "Mr. Horn has
had the same authority this year
as he has had in previous years.
It isn't a question of granting
authority for he automatically assumes it from year to yoar. The
authority of Mr. Horn's position
could only be detracted from by
specific action of Council. There
has been no such action."
Charges
(AN EDITORIAL)
Q The last Issue of the Ubyssey presented the wave of resentment and disappointment that swept across the
campus after the news of the resignation of Mr. Horn. A
number of charges were brought against the Student Council
by various individuals, notably graduates. The Student
Council has an opportunity to examine these charges, and
In today's issue, we present their reactions and also the reactions of a wider cross-section of student opinion than was
possible for the last issue between the breaking of the news
and the press deadline.
A group ol students have petitioned for an Alma Mater
meeting next Wednesday noon, to discuss Council policy during the past few months. From all accounts, they are taking
issue with the Council over matters of Brock Hall administration and over other matters that have been brought up from
time to time. There is talk also of a vote of confidence in
the Council at this meeting.
But before suh a motion is passed, students should
consider several Important points. First they must consider
what students would be eligible for office, and more important, what students could do a better job in office than
the present Council are doing. Then they must consider the
dangers of electing a new and -wholly inexperienced Council
at this time of year for a very hard job. There is also the
difficult .question of who would look after student government between the vote of a lack of confidence and the new
elections as well as the question of 'who would look after the
elections themselves. Only if these difficulties are overcome
and the weight of evidence is sufficient will such action be
justified.
Now is the time for a little sanity and sound judgement.
The issues should not be obscured by a mass of personal
animosity and argument for the sake of argument. It will be
a good thing for the campus if all the excess steam is let off
at this meeting so that the rest of the year may be comparatively untroubled.

Student Petition
Calls AMS Meeting
Q     In answer to a demand presented in the form of a petition signed by 132 students, a special Alma Mater Society meeting will be held next Wednesday, February 12, in
the Auditorium.
The petition, organized by Evan
apRoberts, former treasurer of
Student Council, stated that the
purpose cf tlie meeting would bo
to "discuss thc policy of the 1940-
41 Student Council and to move
any motions that may result from
the  discussion."
Amongst the names appearing
cn 1he petition were those of Student Councillors Todd Tremblay
and   Charlie  Nash.
Students question' d by the
Ubyssey on Wednesday regarding
the Council situation generally
stated that there was an urgent
ne'sd for more information before
nny conclusions could bo reached.
At tho si-me time thoy felt that
some   cvi' icism   was   certainly   due
to Council for allowing the present situation  to arise.
The general opinion was well
expressed by Ted Nichols, president of the S.C.M., "Certainly
there is criticism due Council for
ailving in such a situation. But I
should have greatly appreciated
both sides of the story, and n
chance to hear what council members have to say about thc mat-
l-er."
F. Dean Kemper, president of
the Munro Pre-Med Club said, "I
think Lumsden was ill the wrong
in accepting Horn's resignation
when It was going to have such

On Campus
^ Following close on the
heels of similar tactics
at the University of Toronto,
the outlawed. Young Communist League this week distributed anti-British, anti-
American, and anti-every-
thing pamphlets to studenta
of this university.
Mimeographed on the cheapest of
paper, the notices contained attacks on everything non-Communistic and were full of numerous
half-truths.
Attacking the continued participation of Canada in "this imperialist war" and urging young Canadians to sever their ties with
"imperialistic and capitalistic America," the diatribes found their
way by mall and secret delivery to
homes  of   undergraduates.
The messages were sent to
freshmen and seniors, men and
women, representing all sides of
campus activity.
Most students treated the "advice" as a joke and some refused
to  read it through.

THE     UBYSSEY-
-Friday, February 7th,  1941
* From   The  Editor's  Pen  »  »  »
Student Buildings
^    An issue which has  been obscure  too
long might well be brought into the
open now. It is the question of the administration   of   student   buildings.
At present the gymnasium and the stadium are administered by the Athletic Directorates, which consists of students and
faculty representatives. The revenues
from them go into trust funds under the
Bursar. Brock Hall itself ls administered
by a student-faculty committee, the Committee for the Administration of Brock
Memorial Building, and its' revenues also
go into a  trust  fund  under the  Bursar.
Why do these student buildings have to
be managed in this way? As these buildings
are for student use, it would seem that the
Council could administer them more efficiently and more practically than can committees consisting partly of faculty representatives. Surely student government has
advanced far enough that it can assume
such responsibilities as these.
The financial arrangements also are not
very satisfactory. If additional expenses
come up or if certain improvements are
needed, nothing will be done when the trust
fund runs out. Should the expenses be
absolutely necessary and the Alma Mater
Society put up the money, then the bookkeeping of the Alma Mater offices and of
the Administration offices becomes mixed
up.
The sore point, however, is Brock Hall.
As the administration of the building is in
the hands of a student-faculty committee,
applications for the use of the building or of
a part of it go, not to the Student Council,
but to this committee. In a building that is
almost wholly for student use, the adminis
tration should be entirely in the hands of
the Student Council if student government
is to mean anything. At the beginning of
the year, revenues from the building went
into a trust fund administered by the Alma
Mater Society. The fund was to be used
for furniture and depreciation. Now the
revenues are to go into a trust fund under
the Burser, but to save trouble, the Council
has adopted the policy of charging no rent
for the building above expenses so that
there is no revenue.
So far, there have been very few complaints, if any, about the way Brock Hall
is being looked after. The opening of it in
the evenings and on Saturday afternoons
is a triumph for Student Council, particularly as the extra expenses are being borne
by the Board of Governors. It would be
worth the extra expense, however, to have
the building in student hands for the mere
principle of student government.
Control of the building was lost during
the fall term. The Council should have
called Alma Mater meeting to discuss the
matter and to support Council in a fight for
possession of the building. The Board of
Governors conceivably might have listened
to the whole story of students even if they
paid no atention to the Student Council.
Doubtless a full explanation of the matter will be available from the Council at
the special Alma Mater meeting next week.
Any obscure points or questions that remain in anyone's mind shoud be cleared up
there.
It might be wise to plan some course
of action at the meeting if possible. If the
matter is dropped this year, it may be too
late ever to  regain control.
New Needles in Old Grooves Byj.c.
& I suppose the average audience can see
"Henry IV" without being torn by
prejudice for one aspect or another of the
Percys' rebellion; the battles are so long
ago that it has ceased to care. But the average audience at Robert Sherwood's "There
Shall Be No Night" cares very much, and
has probably made up its mind, consciously
or unconsciously, on the issue of the play
long before it entered the theatre. For this
issue is the Russo-Finnish war of last year
(or as Mr. Sherwood would probably say,
the Nazi-via Moscow-Finnish war).
On this sizzling question, Tuesday evening's audience seemed to divide itself into
two parts, if you will allow my rough-and-
ready generalization. One part unquestionably accepted Mr. Sherwood's thesis that the
Soviet bear lumbered, into Finland just because the animal trainer in theWilhelm-
strasse cracked his whip; the other, canny
products of the scientific method like myself, had react Pritt and Coates and the
"Labour Monthly" for the negative, and, for
the affirmative, the Victoria "Daily Colonist" (this latter, I might explain for the
benefit of dwellers on the continent, is the
oracle of Vancouver Island Toryism, a
species which finds the Gulf of Georgia complete insulation from the outside world);
and, having achieved this feat of impartiality, formed a suspended judgement (the
intellectual's name for a prejudice) to last
until some of the fumes of propaganda clear
away.
Tears, Idle Tears
And so divided, the audience greeted
"There Shall Be No Night". The majority
applauded vigorously, sniffled into handkerchiefs, and gave a restrained hiss or two.
The minority, probably of one, just looked
on glumly.
What else could it do? In case you
didn't waste your money, listen a moment
to what Miranda Valkonen .played by Lynn
Fontanne) had to put up with. Her son goes
north to fight with the Finnish ski troops
and dies of wounds. Her husband, a neurologist, is serving as an army doctor and is
killed during the attack on Viipudi. Her
daughter-in-law is wrenched away from her
home, and sent to have her baby amid the
cold comforts of relatives in New Bedford,
Mass., Miranda's ancestral seat. Miranda
herself has prepared to set fire to the house
rather than submit to the invaders; moreover, she and Uncle Waldemar have equipped themselves with rifles to resist the Russian troops as they close ln. Or are they
Nazis, Mr. Sherwood? At any rate, they
weren't called up in the U.S. draft).
Not such a high score, you say, as
tragedies go? But this is no real tragedy.
It is heavy gloom by the shovel-full, timed
to smother the real genius for comedy of Mr.
Lunt and Miss Fontanne. The melancholy
lies heavy on the spirit, like a sodden pudding on the stomach. And no catharsis in
any of the three acts. "There Shall Be No
Night" won't even move you to buy a war
savings stamp.

A WESTERNER IN THE EAST
Montreal
S^ Every Sunday with monotonous regularity Montreal has a murder. It adds
spice to this turbulent ant-hill. If you
haven't any friends you can always talk
about the  last  murder.
Just recently a butcher, on • Sunday,
some derogatory banal and puerile things
about the army. A cripple frowned at him
and wagged a threatening digit. He got
butchered.
They don't have man hunts or red headlines. The police just cruise up and un-
dramatically put  the  fiend  away.
Montrealers don't go to church on Sunday. They stay at home and murder their
friends.
I   can   hardly   wait  till   Sunday.
Montreal has always been drummed up
as a pretty large and expensive little town.
Not only do outsiders cuddle the impression,
but even Montreal residents. Indeed even
the   census  taker.
Pioneering in such an attitude was difficult. I spoke of Saskatoon, but even after
spelling   it   they   couldn't   pronounce   it.
My greatest faux pas was in asking
where "The Bay" was. At home, the Bay
was where you got off the street car. Here
it  is  where  you  get  off  the  ship.
But in spite of their idiosyncrasies, Montrealers are the friendliest people in the
world, If you esk a person ■where some
place is, instead of digiting, as is done in
the West, they take you there. And they
talk  to  you  without  being  introduced.

Revelations of
The Writers
£) As fantastic to his readers as his own pixy
creations such as Miss Funga
Klaxon and Dr. Elf Moonglow, is Isaac Ben Solomon
Ben Isaac Ben Joseph Ha-
Doresh Jabez.
The usual counter to tho question of "Who is Jabez?" is "What
is Jabez?" Then you're stumped.
Once he was called "An Overtime
Draw With Nature" (Proceeds to
Red Cross), but that was only
partly right.
The name has no special meaning.. Jabez chose the nom-de
plume by opening a book of
names, coming to the Js, and taking the first one. Actually it is of
Jewish origin and has varied interpretations. Strangely enough
one refers to "families of scribes".
Another is "more honorable than
his brethren". The name (Correctly pronounced Ya-bez but taken
at U.B.C. as Jay-bez) is derived
from the saying of the mother of
the original Jabez—"I bare him
with  sorrow".
Hearing that Jabez was to be
revealed, one girl asked about his
eyes. The left one is green and
the right veers in practice toward blonds and in colour to deep
purple. That ls the latest report.
He may have switched them a-
gain  by   tomorrow.
In reality Jabez is a handsome,
modest fourth year .rtsman. In
his conversation he is just like
one of his columns, perhaps more
subtle.
He did not work for the paper
during his first year. Like all
well-behaved freshmen he read
the Ubyssey faithfully and was
especially intrigued by Chang
Suey. The following summer he
set out to write a Chang of his
own. After presenting samples
to the editor he wound up writing Suey in his second year. Last
year he had a rest and then returned this September with his
original "The Mummery". He refers to his sophomore and senior
years   as   his   "Crime   years".
One might think he specializes
in psychology, but that isn't the
case. He did take Psych 1, that's
all. Nevertheless we believe he
has a secret passion for the psychology department and such men
as   Dr.   Elf  Moonglow.
Asked what he'll be doing next
year, he replied, "I hope to bo
living,   primarily.     If   I   don't   get
Ne<u> Radio
Presented
At Mixer
^ Brock Hall's console-
model radio - gramophone arrived on the Campus Wednesday. It will be
presented to the Alma Mater
Society at the Saturday nipht
Mixer by Sandy Nash,
Arts President. A. M. S.
President Harry Lumsden
will officially accept this gift
of the Artsmen's Undergraduate Society, designed
for student use in Brock
Hall.
This combination radio-gramophone is equipped with a built-
in aerial and built-in record
changer and, according to the
Arts' Executive who tried it out,
has an excellent .tone. All dials
are   enclosed   in   the   cabinet.
The radio will be available for
students at all times in Brock Hall,
and it is hoped that arrangements
can be made to permit playing of
private records, possibly in the
evening. It will probably be installed In Brock Hall on Monday
morning.
The sot is to be paid for from
proceeds of the Saturday night
Mixers, and according to Don
Buckland, Secretary of the Arts-
men's Undergraduate Society,
should be paid for before the
end of th-e year. It ls also hoped
that there will be sufficient surplus to give a sizeable donation
to   tho   Red Cross.

OF Recital
By DAN TATROFF
a)    Dr. Joyce Hallamore, of
Department of Modern
Languages, will conduct a
recorded program of "lieder" in Brock Hall at noon,
Wednesday. Songs by Schumann, Brahms, Wolfe, and
Schubert will be played.
"The most poetic of oil musicians," is what Liszt said of
Schubert. Schubert composted well
over s|x hundred songs during his
short life. He looked at any poem,
good and mediocre alike, and instantly a melody came into his
head. He was actually so indiscriminate that he might have said
with Rossini, "Give me a laundry
list,  and  I   will   set  It  to  music."
The great "lieder" composers—
from Schuman to Hugo Wolf at
least, nave all been deeply influenced by Schubert's songs and
have by no means rejected all
Schubcrlian touches, Brahms and
Wolf 'each composed over two
hundred songs. They differ, fundi.mentally, in that Wolf was a
disciple of Wagner. In fact, Wolf
felt such a reverence for the
lyrics and their poetic m-eter that
at times he sacrificed the purity
cf ills melody. The names of
lrichendorff, Moericke. and Goethe
tipi.-.i-.r raosl frequently on Wolf'a
scngs.

New Yorker for say $5,000 a week,
then I'll be back".
Even many pubsters don't know
Jabez. Most newcomers find out
by accident. Some never have an
accident. He seldom visits the
Pub and always brings his column
in  at  quiet  times.

UNIVERSITY OF

• The University of Alberta celebrated New Year's Eve with a
Faculty Dance. The lofty attitude of
the learned was forsaken In deference to the possible feeling of
inferiority among the twelve students present. Without thought of
the dignified manner befitting a
professor of English or Math, the
frolicsome lads gaily tripped the
light fantastic. Why some daring
prof even whistled to his stamping of the Heel and Toe Polka!
"What is this intelligensla coming
to?"   sigh   the   babes   of   Intellect.

The Manltobans enjoyed a big
A.B.C. Varsity Jamboree lately.
From all reports It lived up to Its
name. Included In the evening's
entertainment was roller skating,
professional entertainment, Band
reveille, the snake dance, and ballroom dancing. How some students
from coast to coast envied them
their snake dance! In fact, so great
was this noble emotion that some
of the enthusiasts on th-a campus
tried to round up a charming coed to perform the mystic contortions of the dance. When It came
to roller skating was there, perchance, a little boops-a-dalsylng
with   a   hard  wood  floor?
* •   .   •
Sacred ls the cause Involving aid
to the Red Cross. Thus runs
the motto from coast to
coast. An example of this Is the
Blankets for Britain campaign
launched by Saskatchewan co-eda
with the fruits of their labor adding to those of the Red Cross..
Not to be outdone is that enterprising U.B.C. So great was their
fervor that they held a Dutch
Treat Ball ln aid of the Red Cross.
For once pert co-.ds fluttered the
eye-lash in vain. They paid out
this time and they couldn't fasten
the blame on Sadie Hawkins either.

Full of New Year's resolutions
are the students of the University
of Toronto returning tor the second
term. A few examples will I hope,
give you an example of the high
character of the Canadian student.
Here they are folks: Whitney Hall
girls have given up chocolates — I
wonder why? One girl has resolved not to get married until
she finishes her ymmr — another
question mark arises. An unln-
dentlfled horde of students enroute
to the card room stated that they
were not going to play so much
bridge this year, and yet another,
"I'm going to cut out cuttln-up ln
tho anatomy class." The majority
favored the dispensing of resolutions during war time, but one
supporter of the old custom protested "I've resolved not to phone
Falcone   House.     Either  the   line's
busy or she is."
* *   *   *
The Manltobans forecast the
opening of their operetta, the
Mikado, on February 12. The Varsity Glee Club expects to present
one of its best shows ln years.
With it goes a sincere wish for
success from the other varsities.

Totem Staff Indignant;
Gives Sales Ultimatum
Q    Something ls definitely
wrong    with    the    students!"
That's the general consensus of
opinion of th-e Totem staff regarding the apparent lack of interest
cn the part of the student body
towards their own  year book.
The publishing of the Totem
represents one of the biggest Investments of the Alma Mater Society, and If students are not Interested enough to buy a copy,
then they, themselves must pay
the   price.
One   way   or   another,   they   pay.
Last week the Totem staff staged
a Sales week in which they offered the students a chance to deposit  a  dollar  down  on  the  three
dollar book. This means days
longer in accounting and bookkeeping, but was done to help the
students meet the price of the
book.
The response to the sales week
was so poor, however, that the
circulation department have had
to continue sales this week ln the
Caf and ln the Pub office.
Owing to this delay, the Totem
will probably be held up, and
will appear on the. campus later
than   Intended.
If you are Interested ln procuring a copy of the 1941 Totem, they
will be on sale Friday and Saturday at th-e special table ln the
Caf. and over in the Pub Office,
Brock   Hall.

I put on a spirited campaign, but

Victoria Reps. Roll
In For Cup Tilt
e The Victoria Crimson Tide rolls into the stadium this
Saturday at 3:00 to play the return match of the Victoria-Varsity McKechnie Cup series. Last time the two
teams tangled, the Island Reps, defeated the Gold and Blue
24—3 in a one-sided battle at Victoria.
The contest this Saturday will
have no bearing on the ownership
of the McKechnie Cup, as the
Victoria team have already cinched possession of the coveted prize.
Both Vancouver Reps, and Varsity have been beaten by the
Islanders, Vancouver twice, Varsity once.
If the University fifteen come
up with a win this week-end, and
man ythlnk they will, they will
be tied with Vancouver Reps.,
both having two losses and one
win.
Varsity and Vancouver still have
a game to play sometime ln tho
near future and it's likely the
battle will be for the second slot
in   the   loop   standing.
Biggest rut the game officials
have   struck   Is   the   fact   that   he
Army     timetable doesn't     agree
with   that   of   the ruggers'.      The
double-header  that was scheduled
had   to    be    called for    just    this
reason.
The gam. starts at 3:00, but if
you're in the Army you won't
be  there.
Lineup as Issued by senior manager Tom Meredith: Evan Davies,
Jim Mainguy, Allan Wallace, Jack

Centralia Here Noon Today
For Return Engagement
O When the Centralia College hoop machine rolls on to
the campus today noon for a return engagement with
our cagey collegians, the Thunderbirds will be out for a win
for two major reasons. They will seek revenge for a three-
point loss to the Washington team at Christmas and they will
be pulling for a record crowd to swell the fund for a memorial plaque for Howie McPhee.
The grudge motive, however, will      ■s»s«___________________________________i
HOWARD  McPHEE
give first place to the fact that the
tilt Is a "remembrance game", ln
memory of the beloved Varsity
track and rugger star who passed
away two months ago.
A charge of ten cents will be
levied on all spectators in order to
buy the memorial plaque to keep
tho spirit of sportsmanship that
Howie epitomized alive on the
campus, The bronze tribute will
be placed in the Stadium, scene of
many of his glorious triumphs.
Only other Varsity athlete to be
honored In this manner was Bobby
Gaul, also a track and rugby star.
In memory of Bobby's feats a
Memorial Trophy was presented, to
be awarded annually to the athlete
who most resembled the qualities
o( leadership and sportsmanship
exemplified In his life.
Howie McPhee won that Trophy
In 1040.
GRUDGE MATCH
The game with Centralia will be
a slzzler, as the 'Birds are still
smarting from the beating Centralia pasted on them on their
Washington  tour.
To bolster up his falling charges,
Van Vllet has secured rangy Don
Livingston, the lad who has been
neglecting the net game for studies
this year. lnter-clty league officials have given an okay to Livingston's entry for Saturday's game
against the Leafs, so Don will be
out with his mates today.
In past performances, the Centralia quintettes have displayed
rugged-styled basketball, working
well under the hoop, and featuring a fast-passing attack. According to the Thunderbirds who met
them at Christmas, the Washing-
tonians have a stronger team than
ever.
Game time is 12:30 today in the
gym. Turn out if you can, and if
you can't, send your dime wUh
simeone  else.

soldier squad is idle this week,
Varsity will have a chance to
creep up and improve their
chances of ending up in the ough-
day.
Soccermen
Copped 2-0
By Police
O The Law caught up with
the Varsity soccer team
Wednesday. Completely dominating the game the Coppers won easily 2—0 in the
Cambie Street contest.
Stu Roach, sturdy Varsity
forward was hurt in the first
few minutes of the game and
had to leave. Without his
aid the roundballers seemed
to fall apart before the pavement pounding police.
Scoring on'.- goal in each half
the Police had no difficulty in
extending their league lead. Varsity was helpless in the last few
minutes of the game as the Cops
took turns at shooting at the
campus goalie, Leong. Leong, by
the way, played brilliantly for
the University  eleven.
It was the collegians' forwards
that were again the weakest department of the team. Time afer
time they failed to click or even
work together before the Police
goal. The loss of Roach added to
their   already   weak   forward   play.
The proceeds of the basketball
game today, noon, will be used to
obtain a Plaque In memory ot
Howard McPhee. The Memorial
Plliqtie will be set up ln the
Stadium.
Biggest surprise of the entire
game was the large crowd that was
on hand to see the battle. Several
hundred spectators witnessed the
tussle.
Jimmy Robertson and Jim Morton were the shining lights for the
Gold and Blue roundballers. Wallace was the best man on defense.
• Delta Upsilon Fraternity's team
packed too much power for the
Alpha Delta Phi entry In the annual Inter-Frat. rugby tournament, which began last Wednesday, and completely smothered
th-em In the opening contest of
the turney by a 9 to 0 score. The
game was fast and exciting with
a fairly large crowd of spectators
on  hand  to   watch   the  slaughter.
Led by galloping Jack Turner,
the D. U.'s controlled most of the
play and seldom did their opponents threaten. The Alpha Delt's
scrum were getting the ball out,
but their threes couldn't break
away   from   the   D.   V.   tacklers.
Capable refereeing was turned
In by Jack Rose of the senior
team. Next gam. will be played
on Sunday with the Zeta Psl'3
meeting the Sigma Phi. Delta Fraternity. Another Sunday contest
will see the Phi Delt's tangling
with   the   Phi   Kappa   Phi's.
