Slick Thief
Steals Cash
• A THIEF paid a visit to the
Delta Gamma table this week
and  stole a  considerable  amount
of money from two of the girls.
A purse containing $3.00 was
stolen from Eileen Rushworth and
|1.50 was taken from Bunty Jukes'
purse.
The actions of the thief show
that she is not new at stealing. The
fact that she left the large purse,
after removing the money, and
took the small purse seem to Indicate this.
All Countries
Must Co0operate
Says McKenzie
• R. T. McKENZIE of the extension department spoke before
the C.S.A.D.C. Tuesday, taking ai
his subject, "Towards a Planned
Society."
He commended the League of
Nations idea even though it had
failed in the past and said that in
the future no one nation must
take on too much responsibility
in keeping such a league working.
"There must be social security in
all countries after tne war," he
said. "But Anglo-Saxon nations
can't do it alone. They must cooperate with other nations."
The minimum requirements for
a peace, according to Mr. McKenzie are:
1. International control of armed
forces.
2. Common tariff rates.
3. Internationalization of colonies with a redistribution of
raw materials.
They will cost only 50c and all
will be expected to purchase their
own. The difference between the
cost and the price of these button
holes will be given to the Red
Cross.
There will be a pep meet In the
Auditorium on Tuesday at 12:30.
Entertainment will include a parade of Prom Queens and music by
Ole Olson and his orchestra.
WHICH ONE
Nominations for Prom Qi •<">!? zrc
Margaret Gardiner, Betty Harvey,
Bette Anderson, Patricia Meredith, Vivian Dilger, Mary Drury
and Mary Farrell,
Junior class tickets may be obtained on presentation of Student
passes at the A.M.S. office.
A foolproof system has been
worked out-to prevent the bootlegging of tickets. The name on
the pass will be written across the
ticket when it is issued, and the
pass and ticket must both be
shown at the Commodore. Unsigned passes must be signed be*
fore tickets will be issued.
All others may purchase their

Hi-Jinx Shrinks
Too Many Frails
- Not Any Males
• NO MEN ALLOWED. This was
the cry at the annual Hi-Jinx
festivity of the Women's Undergraduate Society last night.
Proving that there is something
about a uniform, even if the uniform is draped around a female
form, gay crowds ot girls in all
types of military attire, paper hats,
wooden swords, battled for balloons, etc., swung and marched to
the music of the Wurlitzer after
the grand march.
Skits were presented by all faculties, and the Gym roof was lifted off its supports by the roars
of laughter that greeted these
earnest efforts.
Totem Sale
Prolonged
. . . Again!
• "THEY'LL do it every
time.
That's the way Totem editors
are summing up Varsity students
today, as they again extend their
sales deadline, and put Totems on
sale in the Caf.
Last Tuesday had been publicized as the last possible time to
deposit dollars down on 1942 Totems. Last Tuesday, a fair volume
of business was transacted in the
Caf.
But Wednesday and Thursday,
students streamed into the Publications Office, with various alibis
for their tardiness, and so, despite
the inconvenience of further sales
extensions, Totems will again go
on sale today, in the Caf, from 12:30
to 2:00 p.m. and all day Tuesday
In tho Pub Office — for the last
time.
Forumites Uphold King's^
Conscription Plebiscite
• THE STRIDENT GHOSTS of English 9 popped up Wednesday noon in Aggie 100 when a startled audience of
some 50 students heard Foster Isherwood quote ". . . there
is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood,
leads on to fortune" as argument that the Canadian government should institute overseas conscription without its promised plebiscite.
Gone Are These Days
Alberta Waw-Waws Feed
Soldiers Java On Parade
By JOHN SCOTT
•   THE UBYSSEY hesitates to print this, as A.W.O.L. en
masse will probably result, but the news must be told
and tell it we will, even at the risk of depleting the strength
of the U.B.C. contingent, C.O.T.C.
The University of Alberta con-        bii^mm^m«i^mmhb
tingent, C.O.T.C, takes time out
on drill parades for coffee and
doughnuts!
Before mass migrations to the
University of Alberta start, how-
evrr. it's only fair to tell you there
is a slight charge of 5 cents for
this service.
The idea was conceivd by tho
canteen and commissariat section
of the Women's War Services
(Waw-Wnws) who wanted to get
practical experience in serving
food to the troops. The grub is
dished out to the men during
break periods while they are in
training.
The girls have the serving down
to a science. In five minutes they
can serve 75 hungry, thirsty and
tired cadets. Their equipment was
supplied by the C.O.T.C. It is
strictly non-profit, any money left
over is turned back to buy more
food.
So women of U.B.C, remember that the way to a man's heart
is through his stomach, unless you
do something about it immediately
you arc faced with the imminent
danger of losing your male population to the sweethearts of old
Alberta.
Leading speaker for the House,
Michael Young entered a strong
plea in defense of Mr. King's declared Intention to seek public release from "no conscription" election promises.
"We, by this plebiscite, have
shown the world that we have
such a measure of control over our
government that they cannot go
ahead without our approval. We
stand to lose no 'prestige* — we
should not be ashamed, but proud,
to say that our government has
frankly come to us for approval."
Isherwood sharply rapped the
government for "its failure to recognize the change in public opinion."
Lister Sinclair, Player's clubber,
interjected a caustic note into the
discussion. Flaying preceding
speakers against the plebiscite, he
chlded:
"Some have been speaking with
uncommon brilliance upon a subject which Is not being discussed
here."
• FOR THE first  time  in  years
the parking lot is almost clear
of  papers and   bottle3,  and   is  no
longer a disgrace.
No   longer   do  sights   of   empty
bottles, wadded paper, and orange
peelings greet undergraduate eyes.
No longer do irate motorists curse
over cut tires. Their precious Fire-
stones are safe. Banished from the
student's list of fears are"the burly Big Block men, prowling the
parking lot looking for culprits.
This comes as a result of the
uction taken by council during the
Cleaned-up Now
year in an attempt to tidy up the
parking lot.
Thc action taken includes the
suspension of A.M.S. passes for
throwing bottles and paper away
in the parking lot and prohibiting
the removal of bottles from the
caf and the bus stop.
New Teachers Experience
First Pedagogical Trials
by HAROLD BURKS
•   EVERY YEAR would-be teachers from the University
sally forth to do battle on the minds of young Vancouver.
It is doubtful who gets the most education but young Varsity
certainly learns, as seventy-odd student teachers will testify.
Back    after    tWO    weeks    In    the wmmmm^^mmmm—mm—m—mm
high schools across the city they
tell of days of strain and worry
waiting for inspectors and preparing lessons and keeping tab on
large ungainly adolescents.
Stationed at King Edward,
Archie Bain reports. "It is hard
to get used to seeing so many
large children but after a while
you assert your mastery." Dora
Combolos, back from John Oliver,
said she enjoyed it too.
A decided opinicn from Harry
Laronde featured his reaction to
Kitsilano High School. "This high
school is large and impressive and
I found a  great variation In the
social  and  economic standing of
the students."
Another John Oliver student
teacher told of a happy time there.
"I enjoyed it very much," said
Alva Nichols. "The thing that Impressed me most was the spirit
between the teacher and the
student."
One unrelenting note came from
Nancy Carr who was at Kitsilano
High School. "No, I didn't like it.
It was the big boys that gave the
most trouble. However, the teachers were good to me." Page Two-

University Comradeship
Just before the Christmas holidays a
disastrous fire swept the campus of Mt. Allison University, situated at Sackville, New
Brunswick, completely destroying the Men's
Residence. Four students lost their lives
in the catastrophe. The other 200 inhabit-,
ants of the building escaped, but lost all
their personal belongings and books.
This week our Students' Council decided to send the entire proceeds from the
Harlem Globe Trotters basketball game, a-
mounting to approximately $100, to the students of Mt. Allison as an expression of
U.B.C.'s sympathy in their loss, and as our
contribution to the re-establishment of the
unfortunate students.
Undergraduates at the University of
Brunswick, closest rivals of Mt. Allison in
all forms of competition, were the first to
come forward with a contribution for their
fellow students. Although they only have
an enrolment of 350 students, U.N.B. has
set on objective of $200 as their gift. Moreover they sent out a plea to other Canadian
universities on behalf of the students of Mt.
Allison, requesting that all follow their example. This was a fine gesture made by the
New Brunswickians. We sincerely hope
their requests will be answered 100%.
As our cheque for $100 speeds on its
way across the continent, students of Mt.
Allison may rest assured the heart-felt sympathy of the students of U.B.C. goes with it.
An Artificial Nation
Criticism from almost every part of the
Dominion has been heaped on Mr. King for
his untimely decision to hold a national plebiscite. We say ALMOST every part, for
there is one powerful section of Canada
which still believes Mr. King should stick
to his election promise of "no conscription",
let alone hold a new vote on the subject.
That section, of course, is Quebec.
The other day Canadian Press released
a story from Montreal relating how Premier
Adelard Godbout had addressed a meeting
composed largely of French Canadian students. This worthy Canadian statesman asserted he was sure Mr. King would not impose conscription, adding that he thought
"conscription for overseas service would
actually be a crime." After the meeting,
the students marched through the streets
shouting, "A bas, a bas la conscription."
It has been generally conceded the reason why Mr. King was sidetracked onto a
plebiscite instead of taking the direct and
logical road of immediate action was the
French Canadians. He would lose their
political support if he came out flatly for
conscription. And that would mean political disunity and chaos at a time when Canada can not afford it.
Ever since Canada was welded into a
nation back in 1867 there has been dissen-
tion between French Canadians and English
Canadians. No matter how much solder is
heaped on the jagged crevice, the seam always breaks open, revealing two races running unnaturally side by side.
Both races are intensely Canadian, in
their own way. The trouble is, neither can
see eye to eye with the other and friction
results. Friction which might conceivably
become hot enough to melt all the artificial
bonds which try to make Canada one united
nation.
This is why Mr. King is playing around
with words, plebiscites, politics. This is why
we have to waste precious months and
money when we should be getting action
immediately.
Jabcz Writes To
The Gateway
After Some
Tinn
Ed. Note: We told you before thai Alberta's Gateway had been
reprinting the Inimitable 'Mummery*. Here Is the letter Jabot sent to the
Gateway, just as they printed It. Wo don't think it should bo kept from
our own undergrads.
Droollng-on-Sea,
Upswich Downs, B.C.,
Dec. 17, 1M1.
Editor, Tho Gateway:
Door Ed.—Some weeks ago, for
reasons best known to yourself,
you allowed "Ubyssey" agents to
smuggle my column, "The Mummery," into the hitherto unsullied
pages of your paper. Naturally I
was entranced. According to a recent poll, I have no relatives In
Alberta and It was charming indeed to find someone outside the
family was interested in the Work.
Moreover, sm curator of the largest collection of rejection slips
this side of Fanny Hurst, I am
always prone to salivate happily
at the sight of my stuff in print.
I have nix-notes from all of
tho other good publications
that don't print pictures of nudes.
I have everything from a five-page
essay, with bibliography, from the
Atlantic Monthly, to a cryptic
"Uh-uh" from the Reader's Digest.
Tho only non-collegiate publication to accept my work has been
the Christian Science Monitor. And
then if I wrote anything worth
while, they put it in quotation
marks and said that Jesus said it.
So I was delighted to discover
my column, word for word, right
down to the last typographical error, reproduced in your paper,
whose merits I had never fully
appreciation before. Then, in successive weeks, more reproductions
appeared. These were quickly
brought to my attention. Or If
they were not quickly brought to
my attention, I tore tho paper
apart looking for them. Mall day
found mo waiting for the postman
with ill-disguised anguish, standing first on one leg and then the
other, until I could seize The Gateway from the terrified civil servant and strain the columns
through my eager orbs in search
of the goo. Some time afterwards,
another pub member would come
up and mention that you had reprinted my column again. Whereupon I would flick thc beads of
sweat nonchalantly off my brow
and murmur.
"You don't say. Must be hard
up for copy. Ha, ha, ha! Ha, ha,
ha!"
And then I would stumble off
to some quiet corner where I could
stop my knees from knocking.
Life became a hell of suspense.
I knew that once you stopped
printing the columns, our editor,
a sensitive chap, would be obliged,
for the dignity and prestige of the
"Ubyatey" to blot me out. When
writing a column, I had constantly to ask myself: would Alberta
like this? would this hurt the
wheat grower? shall V mention
grasshoppers? Here is some fine
material about how one of our
co-eds, Gertie Pugg, changed her
skin in fror* ri the Library after
a particular jeavy exam. But
does Alberta know Gertie Pugg?
Probably not; or under another
name at least. And so the Pugg
Incident must be ignored.
Then, a few weeks ago Andy
Snaddon blew the whole thing up.
While flailing about for copy one
day, he exhumed the idea of protesting about your not giving mo
a by-line in a recent reprint. 1
was. appalled to r-Md this flagrant
assertion of my rights. You could
give the by-line to King Tut for
all I cared, as long as the column
was there, and I'm sure Tut
wouldn't mind.
But the fat was in the fire, as
we say out here. Alberta exchange
students snarled at me in the quad.
Heated letters were written to the
Editor, threatening to throw the
prairies at us. It got so that I
cringed abjectly before a pound
of Alberta butter (36o a lb.).
Of course, I more or less expected a warm rejoinder from The
Gateway, with perhaps a riposte
by Mr. Snaddon and a counter-
riposte by The Gateway, with my
reputation being pounded back
and forth across tho Rockies, while
I watched helplessly, like a spectator at a ping-pong match.
But no. The latest issue of your
paper contains a heart-warming
open letter to JABEZ (in letters
of « height inspiring nothing if
not vertigo), a letter in which the
Tuesday Editor, an obviously brilliant chap, has some very nice
things to say about "The Mummery." Incredible as it may seem,
It is to acknowledge with thanks
these sentimento that this letter
has been written. I would like to
exchange photographs with the
Tuesday Editor, if he's not already married. I am six feet high,
in my stocking feet, and standing
on a small stool provided for the
purpose. I h.ve dark, curly bags
under my eyes, and am reputed to have a winning smile,
especially when I have my teeth
in. I alco wash my things, like
Claudette Colbert, in Lux. But on
her they look good. — I am, ilr,
Your obedient servant,
at Union rates,
-JABEZ.
By DORWTN BATRD
NO, NOT THAT!
Surely these aging eyea are deceiving me! It couldn't have been
that I read in a recent Ubyssey
that students were complaining
about Caf food?
I hereby call all U.B.C. grads to
rise up and do something about
this.
From time immemorial it has
been the undented right of thc
undergraduate to raise a beef
about Caf food, with special attention toward the coffee. But—
to carry the thing too far and gtt
Council to contact the administration, well, that is too much.
Remember this — it is highly
possible that this complaint will
result in improved conditions. That
will mean — and consider this —
that succeeding generations of students will be minus the greatest
single source of spare time discontent. You can carry a thing like
that too far.
On top of it all, may I stick my
neck out by saying that in comparison to some of the hash joints
known as cafes down town, tho
Caf Is a gourmet's heaven.
In conclusion I'd like to spike a
rumor that was rampant on the
campus some years ago. It was
to the effect that the B.CJD.R.
buses sold their old crank case
oil to the Caf as a base for the
Collet. This was quite wrong. In
fact the opposite was true, Caf
coffee went into the buses — and
served well there.
Seriously though ~ the Caf is
not a bad place to eat Much of
what is wrong with the place i»
the atmosphere, which is created
by those who inhabit the premises. Tho trouble with some of
those who complain is that their
dignity is hurt by having to serve
themselves.
DrMOUT
Presumably, the "dim-out" regulations have forced the university authorities to turn out the
lights on the campus at night —
that is, the outside lights. Yet tha
lights in the library still glow to
a late hour, and in a chem lab
somewhere a light guides a lonely
worker who watches an all-night
experiment.
A good many years ago I wrotj
a piece in these pages all about
the lights of the campus, and how,
no matter what happened elsewhere, those lights should be kep*.
burning. For together they indicate the light that is freedom of
thought.
They are still burning, but it
must be harder now. It must be
hard  amidst all the war to keen
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Editor,  the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In the January 20th Issue of the
Ubyssey, considerable publicity
was given to the thought: "no
flowers by request" as announced
by the Red Cross Ball Committee.
This request was made apparently to keep down the already heavy
expense of those planning to attend.
Why stop there? Why not request the ladies also to forego
their usual hair-do, or perhaps
that extra new pair of slippers, or
whatever new might be needed!
Or, if it is the gentlemen's purse
that is being considered, why not
a "gentlemen's agreement" that
no pressing or cleaning jobs are
to be done on the evening suit —
maybe no refreshments — or, in
a real desire to help the war effort, shouldn't gas and rubber be
conserved and everybody use the
street carl
To go further, one might suggest doing without an expensive
orchestra, and Instead, dance to
the strains of "canned" music —
and in a less expensive atmosphere. All this saving could certainly pile up to a heap more tor
the real worthy object, wouldn't
it — or would it?
Far be it from me to suggest
any of these ideas to this Committee, as I would be the last one
to Interfere with another working
man's livelihood. To me and my
fifty odd employees, selling flowers is our bread and butter. To
those in other businesses, selling
their services is their only way of
paying the taxes our government
so badly needs.
No one could criticise any individual if he chooses to do without a corsage, or any of our modern luxures, but is it a Committee's job to single out one item of
expense for attenUon, or is it your
duty to publish it? Tuum Est!
Yours very truly,
—Joe Brown, Arts '23
(ED. NOTE: It is not our job to
dictate any Committee's policy,
but It certainly Is our job to publicize the policies which are decided upon.)
one's mind on sucha down-to-
earth subject as education. Yet
kep in mind what has happened
to the grand universities of the
old world. They are closed —
either by edict or by bombs. Paris,
Vienna, Berlin. Cities where great
men did great deeds for the world,
in the halls of universities that
lead the world.
When this is all over — the universities of the new world will
have an added burden. Perhaps
even here at U.B.C. the seriousness of that burden will make itself felt. Perhaps here the atmosphere will become like that of a
university, less like a carefree
high school.
This has been a wandering
thought — we can just mark it
down to day dreaming Yet there
isn't one of us who wouldn't be
proud if U.B.C. brought forward
a great man who would give the
world a great deed.
We'd all take a little credit for
it.
MORE FUN
Last week's Red Cross Ball Pep
Meet — the one where I dodged
eggs — was a good example of
the truism that you can have more
fun at such affairs if you "do it
yourself."
It was a Varsity bond — a Varsity chorus — and Varsity entertainers throughout. It seemed to
me that the audience enjoyed it
a lot more than they have the
occasional appearance of professional talent from town.
Strangely enough, while this university has always stood high In
Its production of drama by the
Players' Club, operetta by the
Musical Society, and publications
by the Pub Board — it has flopped badly In the past in tackling
the problem of popular musical
entertainment. Up to now, it has
been a campus without a good
orchestra, without a vocalist or
dance team worth mentioning..
These things shouldn't be overdone, but around here they have
always been overlooked.
The band on the stage the other
day was GOOD. The chorus was
ditto, showing hard training —
and the solo effort by Farina,
while not artistic, pleased the
crowd. That in th'1 end, is the
criterion by which we judge.
One of these days the campus
will boast a boy or girl, or both,
who can write a good, compact
little musical show. Then the picture of extra-curricular artistic
effort will be properly rounded.

C.A.S.D.C.: Dr. Thrupp of the
history department, will lecture
upon "The Technique of Social
Planning", on Tuesday, at 12:30 in
Aggie 100. This lecture is one of
the series under the general topic
"The War and Social Change",
sponsored by the C.S.A.D.C.
(Following is a letter sent to
Harry Home after his report on
Canadian-U. S. merger,—Ed.)
Greetings Harry:
Very pleased to read your report
as printed in the Ubyssey. Enclosed please find part of a letter sent
to one of the Vancouver papers.
I have travelled extensively up
and down the Pacific coast from
Alaska's boundary to Mexico, and
have met many people on both
sides of the 49th who would like
to have North America unified
both for protection and efficient L
production in tune of peace.
Canadians are as much at home ,
south of the 49th parallel as they
are while living in tho northern
portion of this conlnent. An investigation shows that one third
of the people of Canadian stock
now live in the U. S.j while many
of us In Canada live and work
with people born In the U.S.A.
without recognizing any difference.
Why then do we maintain an
interference boundary that prevents free flow of goods and services across this 49th parallel, and
even Into Alaska? The war Is
quickly making us realize the advantages of becoming one unified
country, pooling all our resources
to permit efficient production in
abundance. It is not only the University students who are realizing the importance of eliminating
ths International Boundary.
—Cyril Large.
(ED. NOTE.—The following is a
letter written to a University coed by her mother.)
Dear Frances:
There is one thing you young
people, who are a bit confused —
there is one thing as I started to
say, that you forget. It is that after
a war is over the country is in
greater need than ever before of
doctors, engineers and scientists.
That is why, until the enemy is
overpowering us, our young people
must be kept in school, to be fitted for the staggering task ahead.
So you young people who hear
the sound of guns, content yourselves to serve as best you can and
learn as fast as you can. You will
bo needed aa you never dreamed
yoU would be. Learn all you can.
Afterward there will bo the vast
reconstruction period for which
you must fit yourself. You cannot
be the leaders If you are not prepared. So stick to your learnin.g.
MAN'S IMAGE
What a pity when man looks In
a mirror
he doesn't bark at himself like a
dog does,
or fluff up in indignant fury like
a cat!
What a  pity he  sees himself  so
wonderful
a little lower than the angels!
and so interesting!
—D. H. Lawrence.

IMMORALITY
It is only immoral
to be dead alive

e DANGER: Loaded language at
work.
This was the warning Dr. G. G.
Sedgwick gave to members of the
Psychology Club when he addressed them at their meeting Wednesday night
Drawing examples from newspaper articles and popular writing,
the speaker demonstrated the prevalence of meaningless expressions used merely for their sonorous effect and to instill prejudices without factual basis.
In addition to this loading of
language, Dr. Sedgwick pointed
out a second danger In word usago,
that of using words' to generalize
from particular Instances.

• STARTING February 2,
U.B.C.'s bridge addicts
will have to bring their own
cards or do without, according to a new edict issued by
the Student's Council,
Thursday.
"They haven't played square
with us," said A.M.S. Treasurer
Keith Porter, explaining the decision, "cards have been taken out,
cards of inferior quality returned
in their place, and the 50 cent deposit taken."
Another reason given by tho
treasurer was that the extra work
of the office staff In issuing the
cards and looking after the deposits was a waste of time.
REACTION
Student opinion seems to be
that the Council's action was unnecessary, as many of the players
thought they would have to bring
their own cards in the future, because of the tattered condition of
the A.M.S. cards.
Typical comment by the student
Culbertsons was, "The cards are
just lousy, anyway, so what?" A
third year Artsman came forward
with a suggestion that students
who are Interested would be willing to pay a little extra in order
to continue the service. But the
council decision remains.

Tenth Start Proves
Lucky For Hoopers
Zone Defense Clicks
• SMASHING THROUGH with a 40-30 lead over the third
place Stacy five, an inspired Thunderbird basketball team
took their first step towards making the playoffs, and turned
in by far their best game of the season at the Campus Gym
Wednesday night.
The Thunderbirds, employing a tight zone defense,
held the edge over the losers in their close checking, their
rebound and loose ball recovery, their speed, and in their
shooting.
Syme Marches On
Cup Team Invades
Victoria This Week
•   FRIDAY NIGHT AT 12:00 o'clock Varsity's English Rugby team will take the boat for the Capital City in the
annual invasion classic.   The long delayed game with the
Victoria Reps will be played on Saturday at 2:00 o'clock.
Confident of victory, after three weeks of gruelling
practices, the team is in fine shape both morally and physically. Fielding a strong scrum backed up by a co-ordinated
backfield, the boys of U.B.C. will give the Victoria team a
real fight for the laurels.
The game was attended by a
pathetically small student gathering most of whom dropped la out
at habit and stayed to watch the
most enjoyable game of she year.
The 'Bird shooting quite outshone the Stacy crew. Varsity
made 19 out of their II free shots
good while the losers had to be
content with sinking four el their
II.
Paced by that snappy Me Bar-
tea, Franklin, end Kermode, tho
studeats outsmarted tho ..Stacy
crew and showed every possibility
of auklng a good showing la tho
playoffs. To got in the playoffs tho
students need one more was over
tho Stacy entry.
The game started out slowly, and
it must have been five minutes
before Bumstead then Samson in
quick succession chalked up four
points for the Stacy crew. It looked as it it was going to be the
same old story all over again.
Then Varsity pulled up their
socks and started.
Led by Harry Kermode, who accounted for five markers In the
first quarter, the studes quickly
pulled up to and passed the losers
to end the quarter leading by 11-9.
Once winning the lead the Varsity five never relinquished it
throughout the game, slowly forging ahead point by point till the
game closed.
Franklin and Kermode Spark Team
The second quarter saw Varsity
pull slowly ahead of tho tiring
Stacys, with Barton accounting for
•ix more tallies, which drew the
students out in front by M-17 by
the half.
After the breather the 'Birds
really started to roll. All through
the last half, the students capitalized on their superior speed and
defense to lay a series of sneaker
and set up plays that left no doubt
to their playing superiority.
Franklin, and Barton had an 'on'
night. Their checking left little
to be desired, and their long shots
drew cheers from the sparsely pop
ulated gym. Kermode's playmak-
Ing was good, but several blunders in the early part of the game
might have cost the team their
win against stricter opposition.
This Saturday night the 'Birds
will make their delayed jaunt to
Victoria to tackle the highly rated
Dominoes. This game was originally scheduled for the V.A.C. gym
but has been transferred to the
Island City because Maury Van
Vliet is travelling with the McKechnie Cup rugger squad who
are playing the Crimson Tide in
the afternoon.
Cagers Invade Victoria Saturday
It is not definitely known whether all of the team will make the
trip but some of them may have
run afoul of the military authorities because of too many skipped
.parades. Those going will be leaving on the midnight boat, Friday
and returning Saturday after the
game or Sunday morning.
Here's how they scored;
Varsity: Franklin 11, Barton 9,
Julien, Ryan 4, Johnson 4, Dean,
Hay 3, Sully, Mottishaw, Kermode
9. - 40.
Stacys: Lucas, Lawn 3, Wilson,

Sports A Year
Ago Today
e CAMPUS SENIOR "A" basketball team was the talk of the
city a year ago today. The Maury
Van Vliet coached squad had just
stepped out and trimmed the last
year Canadian Champs, the Maple
Leafs, for thc second straight time
in the season.
Final score of the game was 31-
36, and the win was given the students by virtue of the last quarter's spirited drive which sparked
them to victory.
Pat Flynn was top scorer of the
evening with a total of 15 points.
Scott, Barton and Ryan wore outstanding for the winners also.
e ICE HOCKEY players on the
campus had their playoff fato
hanging in balance a year ago today. Scheduled to tangle with Plywoods the Blue and Gold puck-
sters needed a win to get In thc
city playoffs.
e ANOTHER BUNCH of hopefuls
a year ago today were tho
members of the Track team. Having trained all year the cinder and
field men had high hopes of a
meet with colleges south of the
border. Stu Madden, Mike Young
and Founder could all be seen
going through their paces in tho
stadium.
e IN THE SOCCER set up a year
ago today things were mighty
sad. The highly rated Varsity team
had only tied a lowly Woodward
team 1-1. Stu 'Rochester' Roach
and Laurie Young played brilliant
games for the campus squad.

year, the invasion was ably handled by the basketball squad. Thlt
year it will be a double header.
The rugby team will play In tho
afternoon, and the hoopsters wil
star in the evening.
Charlie Cotteral, Manager of
the team said, "The forces of tho
squad are intact, and the boys
will do their best." On Monday
last, coach Maury Van Vliet said
that the team felt that it was up
to them to prove that English
Rugby was still a major sport oa
the campus by winning Saturday's
game.
If Varsity takes the game from
Victoria, and Victoria takes a game
from the top place Vancouver
Bulldogs, and then Varsity takes
a game from Vancouver, Varsity
and Vancouver will be tied for top
place. Only two games have been
played to date, and Vancouver
has won them both.
STUDENTS SHOULD GO
It is hoped that as many persons as are able will go with tho
team to give them the support
which they need. The time may
never be as good again. For tho
ono trip, the loyalists that go will
be able to see a football game and
a basketball game.
It was rumoured at press time
that those players who had been
declared illegible would perhaps
be reinstated for the week end
game. This will affect Bud Spiers,
Ian Richards, Boyd Crosby and
Wally Reid. If these men are allowed to play, the team will bo
greatly strengthened.
Even if the hope is unwaranted,
Varsity will still be able to field
a very strong team, capable of
licking Victoria with little effort.
Victoria is the traditional rival of
Varsity. They won the much coveted cup last year, and all U.B.C.
is hoping that this year, revenge
will be ours.

To 4*2 Victory Wednesday
•   U.B.C.'S SOCCER football squad took a 4-2 victory from
Pro-Recs Wednesday afternoon at Cambie Street grounds.
Varsity's roundballers met stiff opposition in the Pro-Rec
eleven that fielded one of their strongest teams of the season.
First half play went even, Var-       a^MHBMMaHnMai

be no push off, if he plays. John
Carson drew out at the last minute so that his fraternity, Phi
Delts, would have no advantage
In playing on his table.
Several opinions were given out
at the last meeting of the Directorate, which ordinarily, had Maury
been present, would not have been
said.
One of these slight discussions
was the beef that many of the
Greekers are objecting to the
length of the Cross Country Race.
CROSSCOUNTRY RACE
It must be admitted that 2%
miles is a long way (if you consider the distance from U.B.C. to
Imperial St. far — a mere 40-min-
ute walk) but everybody seems to
forget that it is a CROSS COUNTRY; RACE.
Doug Lee is definitely going to
be the man to beat, with "Galloping Stu" Madden very close behind.
Here are this week's basketball
scores: Alpha Delta 13 — Sigma
Phi Delta 14; Delta Upsilon 25 —
Phi Kappa PI 11; Psi Upsilon 9 -
Zeta Psi 16; Kappa Sigma 20 M
Phi Kappa Sigma 17.
The Kappa Sig, Phi Kappa Sig
game was a real killer—for the
Phi Kapps. Led by Art Monahan
and Doug Watt the Phi Kapps
really made the Kappa's look silly
in the first half that ended 16-5.
Then 6 ft. 6 Mike Goodwin stood
on his toes and felt the basket
with the result that the Phi Kap's
fell apart getting only 1 point to
the  Kappa  15.   Too  bad  'Skulls'!.
This makes the Kappa Sigs and
D.U.'s tied for top with 3 games
apiece.
sity getting the edge. The Blue
and Gold scored first on a.fluke
penalty shot.
Doug Todd took the shot and
passed to Fred Sasaki, who bounced the ball off a Pro-Rec player,
and Todd sped in for the rebound.
He put it through for the initial
Thunderbird score.
Gordie Johnstone, student forward, chalked up another from a
scramble in front of the Pro-Reo
goal. But Harry Carter, Pro-Rec
winger retaliated for the fitness
boys after a series of clever plays.
At half time, Varsity led 2-1.
GOALIE SMITH STAR
The second half opened with a
"bang". Pro-Rec completed a dangerous attack (from Varsity's
point of view) which forced goalie
Herb Smith to make a spectacular
save. Then, Varsity grabbed control of the sphere and Fred Sasaki
registered one for the students.
Five minutes later, Jim Morton,
Thunderbird forward, scored the
fourth Varsity goal. Then, with
the ball game pretty well sewed
up, Varsity led 4-1 at three-quarter time.
Pro-Recs rallied for a short
spurt as Len Coombes scored their
final counter on a penalty shot.
But when the whistle blew ending
tho game, U.B.C. was pressing the
play.
"Wednesday's game saw the
Varsity team playing well, but no
one player was outstanding, with
exception, perhaps, of goalie Herb
Smith, who turned in a really
fine game," commented Jim McCarthy, team manager.
Varsity, by tlvir victory on Wednesday, was able to move further
ahead of the third place Woodsonias.
But the top place Police eleven
swamped Woodsonias and five
points still remain between U.B.C.
and leadership in the league
standing.
LINEUP
The line up Varsity used on
Wednesday:
Goal, Smith; Fullbacks, Young,
Oughten, and Walker; Halfbacks,
Louie, Wallace, and Greene; Forwards, North Sasaki, Johnstone,
Tupper, Todd, and Norton.
