Mackenzie. Crumb Talk Today
Mock Parliament
Discusses Post-War
Reconstruction
• PRESIDENT NORMAN A. MacKenzie, sponsoring the
government's policy and Dr. J. A. Crumb, representing
the opposition, will be the principal speakers at the opening
meeting of the Parliamentary Forum today in Arts 100.
The subject of the firsf bill to be presented to the house is,
"Be it resolved that a league granting equal representation
to all powers would be a better guarantee than an alliance
of the great powers for world peace."
This debate if expected to bring      , ==,     .   ..   ..—4^-_
out the main points ot the recent
Dumbarton Oaks Conference. The
purpose of this conference was to
prepare data on the possible creation of a world organization to
preserve peace.
N AMERICAN PLAN
The American plan ls to form
a Council which can call into action all armed forces available to
the world organization to suppress
aggression. The Big Four, with
the later addition of France are
to be permanent members of this
Council. Representatives of six
other nations are to be elected and
will outnumber the great powers.
Tho fact that decisions need not
be unanimous but by majority vote
is the main difference between this
proposed Council and the League
of Nations.
It was also suggested that there
should be no International Police
Force, but that each power should
be required to police only its own
region of influence.
PLEDGE FORCE?
The problem arising from this is
whether the Americans are prepare to pledge the USA to use
force at the orders of an international group without the signed
declaration of war by Congress.
Russia on the other hand advocates virtually absolute rule by the
Big Four as well as an international air corps to be controlled by
these same powers.
CLARIFY SUBJECT
What the final outcome of the
Dumbarton Oaks conference will
no( be known, but today's debate
between President MacKenzie and
Dr. Crumb should help to make
the subject clearer to the students
on this campus.
Students are urged to participate
in the discussion which will follow
the debate.
Mock Parliament will be held
during the evening of Wednesday,
October 18 in the main lounge of
Brock Hall under the auspices of
Parliamentary Forum. Party cau-
suses will be held Tuesday, October 10 at 12:30.
Labour party will meet in Arts
102, Progressive - Conservative in
Arts 106, Labour Progressive in
Arts 108, and National Independent
in Arts 204.
Coeds Elect Third
Year Executive
• CLASS OFFICERS of third
year Arts were elected at a
meeting last Friday. Glenna Lee,
president of third year Arts, who
was elected last term, presided
over thc meeting.
Jane Borden was elected Vice-
President and Betty Jane Matheson was named Treasurer.
There will be an Arts organization meeting soon. Watch for the
notice  in the Ubyssey.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
It Is the responsibility of every
student to see that his registration
curd in the Registrar's Office lists
correctly the courses which he Is
taking. No student may attend
classes in or receive credit for a
" course for which he Is not registered. As Monday, October 2nd was
the last day for change of course,
all corrections In registration arc
now overdue and must be attended
to AT ONCE.
CHARLES B. WOOD,
Registrar.
Ubyssey Plays
Hard to Get
Starting Today
• COPIES of The Ubyssey will
be "rationed" beginning today
in order that more students will
be assured of receiving a copy of
the paper for which they pay.
Although there has been an increase of several hundred in registration, Students' Council believes that a corresponding Increase in circulation does not
warrant the expense because of
the waste of papers evident about
the campus.
Some students have complained
of not being able to get copies
and therefore the Publications
Board will attempt to distribute
copies about the campus more
evenly.
Only 2400 copies of the paper are
delivered to the campus every
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Students will receive only one
copy per person from the Quad
Box office, distribution point to
the Caf, where there is the greatest waste. The number of papers
for the Caf will be decreased.
The large complimentary copy
list to administration officers will
be cut. Students must remember
that if they want a copy to take
home they must save the copy
they receive when papers are distributed.
A few papers will be saved In
the Pub for those unable to receive copies when they are distributed.
Register for
Totem Pictures
• INDIVIDUAL pictures for the
class section of the Totem will
be taken on the campus starting
Tuesday afternoon.
Students will sign the lists in
the quad for the time they wish
to have their pictures taken and
will then pay $1.50 at the AMS
office starting Tuesday from 12:00
to 2:00. They will receive a receipt
in two parts, the first part of
which is given to the photographer, the other half the student
keeps,
Pictures will be taken in the
room outside the darkroom at the
far end of the south basement of
the Brock. Students can get their
pictures taken only at the time
signed for, and only pictures taken
by the official photographer will
be put in the annual.
Those who can are asked to register for times other than 12:30-
1:30 so that people with heavy
courses who can not come at other
times can be accommodated. If
necessary some pictures may be
taken in the evening.
Pictures will be taken for only
two weeks, so don't wait. If you
don't come in as soon as possible
your picture may not appear.
NOTICE: All those interested in
Totem circulation work meet in the
Pub at 12:45 today. Everyone who
is interested please turn out, as
many more are needed than have
already signed up.
This Is A Koofisooker
^^^'^'.-^'•-^v.
KoofisooKEfi   Tieer/cus
Council's Brainchild
AMS Imports Koofisookers
• THE ALMA Mater Society has recently accepted- three Koofisookers, which
will be shipped from Tibet
as a gift to UBC as soon as
the exchange rate on the
piaster has been brought into
line with the rouble.
The Koofisooker, or translated,
Campus Scavenger, is a garbageif-
erous marsupial, and in this respect it was ideally evolved for
the job as its spacious pouch
makes a handy receptacle for pop
bottles, slide-rules, golf balls and
other revenue - producing odd -
ments which will contribute to
the coffers of the Society.
MISALLIANCE
This animal is the result of a
misalliance between a Yak and
a Yumph, a goatlike quadruped
which ranges between the upper
reaches of the Boopdong and the
Hindu Kush. News of its existence first reached the outside
world from travellers who saw the
animal feeding among the monastery middens of Shangri-La.
Costing  absolutely nothing  for
upkeep, in fact swelling the A.M.S.
exchequer, these useful animals
quickly adapt themselves to campus life, and itjs understood that
they are very docile with freshettes.
CONTENTED KOOFISOOKER
While the Koofisooker could not
be termed a fussy eater, he does
go for some things in a big way,
showing a marked partiality for
lunch papers, old text-books, broken coke bottles, and candy wrappers, with a fair amount of
worked-out chewing gum, which
adds viscosity to the roughage.
As a very special treat, if he can
be given three lipstick butts for
local colour, one is rewarded by
his peculiar whinneying purr of
contentment.
But until the exchange rate between the piaster and the rouble
can be straightened out to permit
the shipment of our three Koofisookers, Allan Ainsworth pleads
that the stuff be not allowed to
stack up.
Give the Koofisookers an even
break. All students must keep the
Campus clear of litter.
Give Percy H. Elliott
Scholarship
• TO HONOR the memory of Percy H. Elliott, late principal of Victoria College, former associates and students
of the widely-known and beloved educator have formed a
committee to found the Percy H. Elliott Memorial Scholarship
or Loan.
It is estimated that one $150 or
even two $100 scholarships could
be established on a contribution of
two dollars from every former student of Professor Elliott's classes
at both Victoria College and the
High School before Victoria College commenced operations,
TRIBUTE
''The value of his work and personal influence as head of that
fine1 institution cannot be measured
in ajiy form of words nor can it
be recorded in any monument that
is adequate; but it has passed into
the lives of many men and women
of whom this University is justly
proud." Thus ran part of the tribute of the University Senate to
a former member.
Professor Elliott came to Victoria
College in 1907 when that institution, housed then in the Junior
High School, was affiliated with
McGill, his alma mater. He transferred in 1916 to UBC where he instructed in physics and chemistry,
then returned to Victoria when the
College was re-organized as an affiliate.
SPECIAL RECOGNITION
He succeeded Dr. E. B, Paul as
Principal of Victoria College at the
latter's death in 1927. He raised
Victoria College from its struggling
years as McGill's under-privileged
littlo brother to the point where
two years ago it won special recognition from an investigating group
of the Carnegie Foundation.
A well-known sportsman, he was
Interested In boxing and crosscountry running on this campus.
At McGill he held the position of
Captain of Harriers and achieved
prominence as a light - weight
boxer.
Students Move
Brock Furniture
• THE EMPLOYMENT Bureau
is at present working on a new
system for moving furniture in
the Brock lounge after student
functions,
Last year students signed up for
certain hours to cope with the situation and were assigned duty in
shifts.

Chambers Plans
War Hid Council
Drives This Vear
• FOUR energetic drives
will be featured by the
War Aid Council this year
under the direction of Ted
Chambers, newly-appointed
president. The Council will
follow the lead of last year's
organizations in abolishing
tag days on the campus.
The important job of the Council is to co-ordinate the various
war-drives on the campus. The
events this year will be a tag
dance in October, ISS week scheduled for February, and the Red
Cross Ball. Other sources of revenue will be the waiving of caution money, a War Stamp drive
sponsored by Mamooks with the
objective of raising $750, and mixers the first week of every month
to enlarge the ISS fund.
A meeting will be held of all
War Aid Council members in the
double committee room in the
Brock at 12:30 p.m. Friday, October 5.
forestry faculty
Sought for UBC
• APPROVAL   of   a   proposed
motion to establish a Faculty
of Forestry at the University of
British Columbia was given Monday by the university Forestry
Club.
The club has set up a committee
under the chairmanship of club
president Robert Knowles to investigate the possibilities of such
a faculty at UBC and present a
report.
An editorial written by members
of the club in support of their
plan is on the editorial page of
today's Ubyssey.
flsk UBC Help
In Bond Drive
• THE university has been
asked    to   support   the
Seventh Victory Loan which
starts in late October, according to a letter received
from the Loan Committee by
AMS president Dick Bibbs.
No plans have been completed
for promoting the sale of bonds
on the campus. As in the past
large campus' organizations such
as fraternities and sororities, as
well as individual students, are
expected to be urged to give their
full support.
The   Alma   Mater   Society   will
not   buy   any   bonds   during   the
campaign   since    their   purchases
Jwith surplus funds.   A bond  for
Pare made at the end of each year
llOOO dollars was bought at the end
of the 1943-44 session.
Recommending that a fund not
to exceed $1000 be put aside to
pay for accidents suffered by students, the original report was a-
mended so that the students' financial status receives top priority
in grant* and the president of the
Women's Athletic Association is
included in the committee handling the fund.
QUORUM?
Debate on the Insurance committee's report did not reach the
usual high pitch of student oratory,
but aided by the efforts of treasurer Ken Creighton, the student!
were distracted enough to forget
the time-tested debate on a
Quorum.
Creighton Lays ...
... Down Law
Importance of basing the grants
en the financial status of applicants was advanced by Les Raphael. MUS president. During Raphael's speech. Creighton paced the
floor and finally retired from the
debate by resting on a sofa placed
at the back of the stage.
Creighton came back from retirement to reply to Pete McGeer, who
questioned the advisability of discontinuing last year's insurance
policy on the grounds that it was
a "long term policy" and would
pay dividends in peace time when
Increased athletic activities would
mean Increased accidents.
Creighton explained that when
peace comes and claims increase
then the policy would be renewed.
Until then the* society would save
money by not paying the premium
of $.50 per student. Benefits received last year totalled $150 while
payments were over $1100.
Allan Ainsworth, Junior Member, suggested the Administration
contribute to the insurance
scheme since many accidents occured in laboratories and lectures.
He cited the example of the
School Board, which paid for
school children who were injured
in school activities.
Pre-Med Meeting
Held Friday
• A GENERAL meeting of
the Muriro Pre-Medical
Club will be held tomorrow
noon in Science 300. A membership and registration fee
of 50c will be collected.
A survey of admission requirements to the eight Canadian medical schools was made this summer,
and a recommended three-year
Pre-Medical course forwarded to
them for approval. In most cases
the recommended course was approved as meeting the requirements  for   admission.
A copy of the recommended
course has been forwarded to the
Dean of the University, and the
Executive of the Provincial Medical Association for final approval.
NOTICE: Members and all interested persons are invited to attend
a meeting of the Social Problems
Club in Arts 204 on Friday, October 6, when the functions and

Forestry Proposal
Following is an editorial written by
members of the Forestry Club in support of
their request for a Forestry Faculty at the
University of British Columbia. In publish*
ing it, The Ubyssey heartily endorses the
request, the good points of which are evident
to all who are thinking of both the future
of the province and the university.
—THE EDITOR.
As we well know, our fosests in British
Columbia are our most important natural
resource. This is proven by the fact that
three-fifths ef our land in B.C. is fit only
for growing timber and will therefore be
of no use to agriculture. Also that .40 out of
every dollar of revenue to the government
comes from some form of forestry industry.
We now realize that in order to insure ourselves against future depletion we myst
introduce some form of sustained yield for
our timber and we must also realize that
in order to do this we will need to have
tiie necessary number of scientifically trained personnel to manage our vast timber
holdings and to carry on forest research in
both wood utilization and silvicultural
methods. Even today only scientifically
trained men holding a forestry degree can
hold an executive position in our provincial
forest branch.
In the large American universities such
as the University of Idaho, the University of*
Washington, the University of California,
Yale University, our Toronto University and
many other institutions in both the USA
and Canada forestry is a very definite part
of their educational facilities just as agriculture at our university enjoys a place as
one of the main sciences.
In these institutions there is a straight
course in forestry with a degree of B.Sc.F.
offered and a graduate course with degrees
of M.Sc.F. and Ph.D. in Forestry.
In the past there has not been the
demand for technically trained foresters in
British Columbia and therefore there were
few students interested in forestry. A small
faculty was all that was justified in view
of the number of students; consequently instruction was bound to be restricted in its
scope as one cannot expect a professor to
be an expert in all fields of his profession.
The American colleges have large student
enrollments, therefore large faculties are required, more funds are available so that high
calibre men are attracted. With the awakening interest in forest management in British
Columbia, there is a demand for technical
foresters which cannot be supplied by our
present restricted conditions at the University of British Columbia.
The following are some of the points
with regard to Forest Education that were
presented to the Royal Commission On
Forestry in 1944 by the Canadian Society
of Forestry Engineers, a group of professional foresters, not necessarily engineers but
men holding forestry degrees. The Society
has 98 members in British Columbia, of
whom 53 are in Government service or on
the University staff, 33* in the forest industries and 12 consultants or retired.
Silvicultural rranagement of forests
cannot be successfully undertaken by remote control nor by persons without scientific forestry training. In B.C. the number
of professional foresters locally responsible
for the management of definite forest areas
is grossly inadequate. This applies both to
the Government and private forest land
owners and operators.
The present curriculum and number of
instructors at the University of B.C. are inadequate to maintain the high standard of
qualification in the science of forestry which
is appropriate to praduation in the University of a province whose most important
natural resource is the forest. The forestry
curriculum appears to be inadequate as
follows: The student is unable to take a
straight forestry course but must take forestry in combination with some other
science, i.e., with engineering in the Faculty
of Applied Science, or with botany or commerce in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
Too small a proportion of the student's time
is spent on forestry subjects. The student
receives little actual forestry instruction
before his fourth year and too little time is
given to field practice.
The Society recommends that only one
bachelor's degree, B.Sc.F. be granted to
forestry students following satisfactory completion of five years of work in technical
forestry, but that the student be encouraged
in his senior years to specialize in accordance with his ability and inclination in subjects which will qualify him for the particular field in forestry in which he is most
interested. That more field instruction and
practical forestry exercises be provided and
that at least one term of the student's work'
be undertaken at the university forest near
Pitt Lake. That adequate buildings and
facilities be provided to meet the requirements of an expanding forestry program
both on the University campus and at the
Pitt Lake University Forest. That, in the
organization of the proposed Forest Research
Institute by co-operative action of both
Governments, Industry and the University,
arrangements be made for the scientific personnel of the Institute to assist in undergraduate instruction, and for University instructors and senior students to have full
use of the Institute research facilities.
Because the province's forestry policy is
in a state of flux and because the public
education is a necessary fundamental of
forestry, we, the Forestry Club of the University of British Columbia will attempt to
bring before you this year a number of
technically trained foresters from both government and industry to explain some of
the forestry problems in our province.
the last word
. . . by Mardee Dundas
• THERE is perhaps nothing quite so frustrating
in the wide range of everyday experiences as the sudden, shocking discovery of
an unmailed letter.
Being a confirmed unmailed letter-finder, I can
knowingly say that the sensation of finding a little
letter, once brought benevolently and optimistically into
the world only to die in some
musty corner, is somewhere between the
sensation of stepping up when there isn't
a step and the feeling one has when they
discover they haven't enough money to pay
a restaurant bill.
NO JUSTICE
Why is it, that when you hunch—perhaps for hours—over a writing pad—pen
scrambling frantically—in a frank outpouring of self—, after you tuck the letter lovingly in an envelope,— even go so far as to
press a stamp in considerate fashion on this
envelope, why is it that you find the letter
three weeks later staring pallidly at you in
a dead, disappointed fashion? ,
Many people claim there are Postal
Pixies, little sprites who snatch your letters
out of listless hands and spirit them away
to Postal Pixie hiding places—letchen ledges,
writing desks, overcoat pockets, women's
handbags and other pixie-like places.
PIXIES?
But you can't murmur "Postal Pixies"
to irate and unwritten-to friends, and few
are the long-distance friendships which can
thrive on a letterless existence.
And then again, the loss is just as much
yours as anyone elses. No one likes to leave
pieces of their personality lying around
where they can't be appreciated—or replied
to. Who knows what little pearls of wisdom,
and gems of wit were written to sparkle
unseen.
WHO KNOWS!
How many times has the path of true
love been detoured? How many times have
birthday's gone un-Happy Birthdayed? How
many Thank You notes have never gone
beyond the enveloping stage. Who knows!
Who knows? This is the whole bitter
point of this column. No one ever knows
or ever will know about your flashes of wit,
considerate nature, sage wisdom, or undying
devotion, but yourself.
FRUITLESS
There seems to be no practical solution
either. One perhaps could mail all his or her
unmailed letters after one has untombed
them or one could limit one's circle of friendship to a radius of flat rate telephone call
districts. All of which would lead to mental
isolationism.
But the most frustrating thought of all
is this.   Have you ever thought of all the
letters you might have received but didn't?

BROWNIES  TOPPLE CARDS
HOW TO EAT A COLUMN
• THEY TELL ME it's really bad when you get to the
stage where people notice your sports scribe pallor. Some
tay this state is caused by the printers ink which gets into
your blood. But it seems to me it's even worse after you've
eaten your own words, especially when they're in your
column.
Hokay, so the Browns did win the Amerk pennant, but
you can't pin it on me. Maybe it was fate, and then again,
maybe it was my Yankees. They didn't make a very good
showing, did they? Anyway, how was I supposed to know
that the Senators would pull a dirty trick on the Tigers in
their last contest.
But I still haven't learned my lesson. This time I'll go
all out. If the Cardinals don't win the World Series in six
games I'll eat this whole darn column. It's a case of me
versus the Brownies this year.
Well, I Picked One Winner
And speaking of baseball, I feel much better after calling
at least one .winner in baseball circles. I nearly fell over backwards when they told me that my San Francisco Seals had
taken the Pacific Coast League playoff from Los Angeles
Tuesday night.
The Seals did it the hard way, copping the first three,
then dropping three to knot the series, and finally winning
the title in the crucial finale. That's my club.
This triumph sort of made up for a previous disappointment. Carlos Q. Robertson picked the Angels to Beat out
my Seals in the pennant race. Unfortunately, the Seraphs
topped the loop, so I lost the wager to the News H sports
editor. What a lucky fnumph!
And speaking of fnumphs, they have quite a collection
of these in the Senior A Basketball League. This loop is
currently up to its neck in problems. Maury Van Vliet and
I took in the organization meeting at the YMCA Tuesday,
night to find out where Varsity stands.
Airmen Won't Be Slouchers
Most of the conference was spent discussing why Lauries
and Stacys should be back in the league. All this was done
by Nate Singer and Laurie Liddle, respective sponsors of
the two clubs. It reminded me of the Fourth of July with
all those fireworks flying around.
Personal, I think we might have a senior hoop loop after
all, but don't quote me on that. And as for picking a winner,
well, I was going to pick Varsity, but after listening to
Kermode and Pomfret describe their outfit, I'm not so confident of our squad.
According to these two airmen, they may even beat Pat
Bay's perpetual champions. At that, they swiped one of
the Gremlin stars, Ian McKeachie, the long-shot artist. Then
there's Jimmy Pratt, Bert Duffy, Ernie Hall, Doug Smithers,
Stan Nicol and Cliff Haynes. Never heard of 'em, eh? Well,'
you soon will.
So maybe Varsity will have a little competition after all.
Not that we don't like a little competition now and then.
We'll take a little more of that any time they're dishing it
out. Yes, a little more, please. But no spinach, mom. I
hate spinach.
Amerk Wonders Work
Win On Two-Hit Attack
• SPORTSMAN'S PARK, St. Louis—(UP)—St. Louis
Browns, fresh from their spoils in the American League,
went on towards greater stakes Wednesday as they used the
hitting power of George McQuinn and the cunning pitching
of Denny Galehouse to defeat their intra-city rivals, the
Cardinals, 2-1, in the opening game of the 1944 World Series.
McQuinn, the Brownies' fielding genius at first base, hit
a home run off big Mort Cooper in the fourth inning with
one man on base, and Galehouse made these runs stand up
as he displayed some of that clutch pitching which carried
Manager Luke Sewell's club to their first Amerk Pennant.

Both of the Varsity squads have
been getting into shape for the
last two weeks, and it looks like
the Blue and Gold will have two
evenly-balanced clubs this season.
But Ex-Britannia is touted as the
team to beat in this league.
However, it is felt that the players aren't turning out as they
should. Although there have been
enough punters out to the practices to form two outfits, there
are plenty of freshman enthusiasts who haven t appeared for
action as yet.
The squads practice in the Stadium every Tuesday and Thursday at noon.

JEWELLERS
League jinx of Mort Cooper, who
had won 22 games this season,
came up to plague him.
He allowed only two hits, but the
Browns, as they did so often in
the stretch drive In which they
nosed out the Detroit Tigers by
one game for the Junior League
title, used them to the best possible
advantage. Cooper, using a biasing
fast ball and a sharp breaking
curve, had set the Browns down
without a hit In the first three
innings, but Gene Moore broke the
spell by singling to right with two
men out ln the fourth.
McQuinn let Cooper's first pitch
go by for a ball, but he swung at
the second and the ball landed ln
the  right  Held  pavilion  for   two
runs.
I
That was the best the Browns
could do with Billy Southworth's
fireball ace, but it was enough.
Every time Cooper faces an American League team he has trouble
with his home run ball. It was
his fifth World Series start and his
third defeat against one victory.
In each of the defeats—as well aa
in the two all-star game appearances—his home run ball proved
his undoing.
Galehouse, hurling with the calm
which 10 years of Major League
experience has given him, pitched
out of trouble in the early Innings
and then coasted along until the
ninth.
Marion opened the Cardinals'
ninth with a liner which center-
fielder Mike Kreevich came in fast
for but missed on a shoe-string
catch attempt.
The ball rolled away from Kreevich fur enough to allow Marlon
to go to second. He went to third
when Augle Bergamo grounded out
and scored after pinch-hltter Ken
O'Dea filed to Kreevich. He got
Johnny Hopp on a fly ball to end
the game.
Eewell nominated Nelson Potter,
his leading pitcher with 19 victories
for the second game today while
Southworth said he would counter
with Max Lanier, a southpaw who
suffered a late season slump.
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
UBC and RCAF ready togo;
Need two more hoop squads
O VARSITY seems to be about
the only outfit without any
troubles in these troublesome days
of Senior A basketball. This was
quite evident at the organization
meeting of the Vancouver and District Basketball League down at
the YMCA Tuesday night.
Feature of the confab was an
hour-long verbal battle between
Nate Singer, sponsor of Stacys,
and Laurie Liddle of Lauries, as to
which of the two clubs should be
sent down to the Senior B loop.
It all started when the two
answered the call for teams by
reeling off their tentative line-ups.
The only trouble was they both %
started off like this: BIU Anderson,
Gordy McDonald, Don Freeman,
etc. The only difference was that
Laurie's etc., was a. little longer
than Nate's, probably because he
had a little longer to think while
Nate was listing his players.      "
Terrific tongue-lashings ensued
until the pair were finally convinced that .between the two of
them there is only enough material
for one outfit. But Nate Singer
still persisted with the odd word
throughout the rest of the meeting
since he figured Laurie had an
advantage over him, having a longer etc., in the Pie-Rates' line-up.
Bert Edwards, executive member
from the Minor Leagues, was the
only one to come through with a
level-headed suggestion for a four1-
team loop. His idea is to persuade
Higbies to advance to senior company with the aid of several more
seasoned players.
The fourth outfit, Vancouver
RCAF, was represented by Harry
Kermode and Jack Pomfret who
livened the conference with bright
suggestions from time to time.
Regarding a gym tor the league,
they finally thumbed down the
"theatre under the stairs", Pro-
Rec gym, in favor of a Saturday
night stand at King Edward.
Incidentally, they managed to get
the business of the meeting done.
They re-elected Lloyd Purdy as
president and Ebble Bowerlng as
secretary-treasurer. WUf Moffat,
commissioner of the Minor
Leagues, is vice-president, Wynne
Stevenson Is assistant secretary-
treasurer and Bert Edwards Is
executive member.
The matter now rests with the
executive who will decide whether
Lauries or Stacys will remain in
the fold, and will attempt to persuade Ted Milton to organize a
snappy ball club out of his Inter
A Higbies.
