"Spring Cleaning" is probably the
greatest success as yet of the International Players.    It is a witty play
Implications of the Roosevelt Recovery Plan was the subject Professor G. F. Drumond discussed with
the International Relations Club,Wednesday evening last at the home of
Professor and Mrs. H. F. Angus.
Mr. Drummond first outlined the
conditions in the United States be-
i'ore the depression with special mention of the war controls and the
growth in tha labor movement. Since
the depression this power has tended
to disappear through restriction by
the law courts and legislation. In its
stead has come the ascendency of
business exploitation and the integration of industry.
Increased Leisure Needed
"Prosperity," declared Mr. Drummond, "is poised between the industrialists on the one hand and the consumers and workers on the other.
There has been no fall in price but a
rise in unemployment, a rise which
could have been prevented not by
lower prices and higher wages but increased leisure."
Roosevelt not only strives for a
general business recovery but a reduction of overhead debt, a re-distribution of income to the benefit of

Studentships, and Fellowships haw
been received by the Registrar from
the National Research Council.
These scholarships are intended for
students who have given evidence of
capacity for original research. The
most suitable evidence of this capacity is the presentation of a research already performed. In the
case of bursaries, high distinction in
scientific study during the undergraduate course is required.
The scholarships are open on equal
terms to men and women. An applicant must   be a  British   subject

Gold Mining
At a meeting in Arts 100 on Monday, the graduating class of '34 elected an executive to handle all business of graduating exercises. Jekyll
Fairley was elected president, and
Myrtle Beatty vice-president. The offices of secretary and treasurer were
voted to Alison Reed and Roy Eyre
respectively. Milt Owen was chosen
to fill the office of valedictorian.
Dr. Shrum, as honorary president
of th. graduating class in Arts, was
voted honorary president of the graduating class, as a whole.
Owing to the early election of the
resident in Canada, and to be eligible I executive, it was decided that they
for an award must not have passed
his thirty-second birthday on March
31 of the year of application. A married person cannot hold a bursary,
studentship, or fellowship.
Application for scholarships must
be made by the candidate to the Research Council.
Special Regulations govern bursaries.
1934 Scholarships
Scholarships to be awarded in
1450, open to applicants who have
graduated with high distinction in
scientific study. Studentships of tbe
value of |500 will be open to applicants who have already done some
original graduate research in science.
Fellowships of the value of |550 will
be open to applicants who have given
distinct evidence of capacity to conduct independent research in science.

fcuid Mr. J. D. Galloway, Provincial
Minerologist in his lecture at the
regular meeting of "The Vancouver
Institute" last Saturday night.
Highest Gold Price In World
It is a far cry from the old days
when the first lode and placer mines
were discovered around the Queen
Charlotte Islands and the Thompson
River in the late 1850's the speaker
said. The production of gold in B. C.
has doubled since 1931 reaching the
six million mark last year. The gold
mines have continued to employ
hundreds of men throughout the depression and now, due to the fact
that Canada is paying the highest
price for gold in the world, $32.33 an
ounce, more men are being called Into service to work mines which couldn't be profitably worked if gold commanded a lower price.
Shallow Mines In B. C.
There are three districts in R. C.
which contain valuable deposits of
gold the speaker said, the Bridge
River, pie Cariboo and the Nelson.
The mines in these districts which
are producing the best grade of gold
ore are not on newly discovered
sites but on sites which were discovered some 15 or 20 years ago.
Mr. Galloway warned investors that
because a company could boast of a
few unproductive quartz veins close
to the surface that there was no
guarantee that there was gold at a
greater depth beneath the surface.
He pointed out that most of the mines
in B. C. were comparatively shallow
and that the deepest veins did not go

Need For Survey
In conclusion Mr. Galloway remarked that there was a great need for
more geological survey work in the
hinterland of British Columbia. Many
known areas have already been extended because of the efforts of the
geologists, in working in cooperation
with the bureau of mines at Ottawa

the best methods of treating different types of ore and their inspection of refineries with the purpose in
view of informing the operators of
the most modern methods of refining,
kept the techinque of gold mining in
B. C. to a very high standard.
In view of this high standard of
productive efficiency and the renewed interest in gold evinced by the
public feels certain that the production of gold in B. C. will reach
the 9,000,000 mark this year.

The Parliamentary Forum is taking notice
of the unfortunate financial mess in which the
province finds itself. To-morrow evening they
are debating on the possibility of British Columbia reverting to the status of a crown colony.
It is a subject that should be provocative
of considerable intelligent discussion. Many
believe that a return to the 'good old days'
when poor John Bull footed the bills would
be the only solution to the province's financial
With the example of Newfoundland confronting the youthful amateur legislators, there
should be plenty of opportunity for example
and argument.
Unfortunately the last meeting of the
Forum did not draw the crowd that the subject deserved. This organization is one of the
most active in promoting University spirit and
creating worth-while publicity. It merits
more consistent support from the student body.
Those students who turned out to recent
games in which Varsity took part in the McKechnie Cup series were conspicuous by their
absence. The comparison in numbers with attendance at meetings on a major sport question which took place not so long ago is startling to say the least. ,
That students should consider themselves
eligible to vote another sport into that major
rating while at the same time refusing to lend
their support to teams already in possession of
that standing is ridiculous.
It appears that such is the case. As a result
of those meetings there are now five major
sports, accorded that rating by a body of male
students who obtained easy suffrage in the
Men's Athletic Association upon registration.
Any moral obligation to support those sports
by according them a fair measure of attendance, especially during their more important
encounters, seems not to have entered into
the consideration of those who cast their franchise so glibly.
It should be remembered that the term
"major sport" means a little more than just
the possibility of Big Block awards involved.
As the News-Herald and sundry other
papers have blossomed out into the annual paeons on spring we think the Ubyssey should
go one too. Starting off with, "Have you felt
how WARM the sunshine is out here in Point
Grey?" We might follow up with a platitudinous description of the way the birds sing over
behind the gym and library.
Instead of that however we are going to ask
how in Sam Hill the danged things survive
with all the marauding crows this section of
the community boasts.
As the International Players have said, a
"pious idear" would be one where the C.O.T.C.
held their target shoot on the campus some
week-end, with highest marks going to the hero
bringing in the greatest number of pairs of legs.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The certain "Pooh Bah" who so
aptly designates himself "The Campus Crab," would be well advised to
secure some Information about his
subject before he spews a stream of
high sounding, misguided, etherial
words to the high heavens. Although
"Sneers and Jeer.'' is undoubtedly a
fitting column head, I would suggest
he add "Smears and Leers," which
would at least be more adequate.
However, it would be strange if our
poor, ignorant, side-stepping crab
could face the issue.
This new group is concerned with
one of the most difficult problems
facing our modern civilization. Only
fifteen years have passed since the
World War. The struggle In which a
mere ten million men and boys were

in all international conferences.

that this accursed economic depression is the direct by-product of that
war. Nor do they realize that the

never really forget it. Presently you take off
your jacket and drape it on your pack as a
first concession to the sun-dragon overhead.
Your pace steadies to a slow, even swing. The
miles drop behind as the heat increases. Once
you cross a creek bed where the water stands
in warm pools, and a few reeds straggle along
the moist edges. But the trail does not pause
here. It climbs another ridge, then, at the
limit of its fifteen-mile swing, turns west again
toward the river.
Life in the burned lands is drowsy and
unafraid, for men do not often come here.
Grouse go up under your feet and flutter to the
nearest stump, where they stretch their necks
and eye you with the idiotic expression common to their tribe. You are in a mood to resent this expression now, for you are tired and
sweating. Foolish, unsightly creatures, flouncing about in the hot, red dust of this blazing
country ! Your fingers itch towards the throwing of stones, but you turn to the blackberry
patches instead. There are no berries quite
so pleasant to the taste as those of the burned
country. They have a piquant fragrance; they
grow in warm, sprawling patches under the
sun, and their juice leaves purple smears on
your hands and mouth.
This is the hottest of all hot times on the
burned lands. All the shadows are behind you,
and the sun stares level and coppery into your
face. Your legs seem to move as things with
which yoti have no connection, and your feet,
ensed in dusty loggers' boots, do not seem to
belong to you. The silence is intense, swelling

laughing up at you like a friend, singing on its
way through glancing riffles and deep, heavenly-cool pools.
You look behind you on the way that you
have travelled. Stump and fireweed ancl the
black ghosts of trees—a wistful, scarred land
that has somehow grown dear to you. Then
you lift your eyes to the hills. They are more
remote than ever, with the twilight on them,

War is a colossal stupidity; an almost unbelievable lapse of human

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Much as we may enjoy the ramp-
ings of a distortioned mind expressing his prejudiced views upon campus activities under the name of an
animal that is so low that it crawls,
I feel there should at least be justice done in making appraisals of any
serious endeavors of our undergraduates. Granted that much criticism is
deserved by the recent group of students, who have perhaps idealy
sought to arouse youth interest in international affairs by an appeal
through the churches, at least credit
may be forthcoming to those who
have taken the time to make what
they consider a pructicle expression
of their belief. While some may hav.
entered into the enterprise for the
sake of free publicity and praise, I
would point out that the REAL leaders of the movement have quietly
taken the background and some have
spoken in th. small, out of the way
It seems to me that the materialistic nature of the heckler of your
columns is well illustrated in most of
the proposed activities which he mentions. The only one of intrinsic worth
in the advance of the true university student's contribution to society
is perhaps participation in the Parliamentary Forum, ancl even in men-
tioing that he lays emphasis upon'
the glory ancl the "spectacular". With
such a low materialistic philosophy
(as one in his capacity must have, I
suppose), it is little wonder that he
cannot aprcciate any attempt on thc
part of the students to be of service to society in appreciation of
the privilega which is ours in obtaining a higher education. While this
may sound somewhat eulogistic, I
would point out to my friend that
most of those who have taken this
task seriously and sanely, (if he
would permit that adverb in this
connection), are students who are actively engaged on the campus in the
furtherance of scientific study ancl
practical programs in the Interests of
International  cooperation.     I  would ,
suggest, in closing, that the Presence
of the member of your staff eluded
to, would be a splendid surprise to
such organizations as now exist for
these purposes.
Yours truly,
One Pooh Bah.

The Ballad of
Three Fingered Joe
Chang Suey thinks he's plenty tough,
His soul is made of leather,
He wears no garters on his socks

And wears no garters on his socks
In any kind of weather.
He has no use for woolen "longs"
To warm his skinny legs,
He has no fear of Science men,
Or profs, or rotten eggs.

One of the problems that my last
column suggested th. Supreme Po-!
tentates might tackle, is the lack of
support the University teams in all
branches of sport are feeling. This
might lead the «;uperficial reader to
imagine that I advocate a return of
the Rah Rah spirit. This is not so.      j
The thing that I am deploring is the
fact that, in ridding itself of the Rah
Rah absurdities, the University has
gone to th. other extreme, and is
breeding a set of artifically blase
nincompoops, whose only outlet for
their natural animal spirits are bursts
of rudeness, crudencss, ancl trouser;
snatching. '
If the., gentlemen and ladies would
stop  kidding themselves,  and realize:
that they are only absurd in adopting what they imagine is a sophisti- |
cated attitude,  but which reveals it- '
self as a ludicrous and embarrassed
smugness,   they   might   give   rein  to
some of their innate enthusiasm, and
allow  themselves  to   take   advantage
of   the   excellent   entertainment   that
the teams offer for such a small price.
| This would  also  give  the  teams the
encouragement   of   something   better
than th.  pathetically small bodies of
.supporters they attract now.
In the clays whon such trophies as
the McKechnie Cup, the Mainland
Cup, and the Tisdall Cup seemed to
have permanent honvos on Varsity
shelves, -five or six hundred in a
1 Varsity rooting section was regarded
as a very poor turnout. There was
evidently some connection between
athletic success and student support.
Since the teams themselves still supply the hard work, good sportsmanship and undiscouraged energy that
has made the name of Varsity synonymous with all the best in amateur
sport, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the picayune tactics of the
student body are responsible for their
dismal performances, in depriving
them of the added drive and enthusiasm that comes from the realization
that they have hearty support behind
As it is now, the student body demands a "Pep Meeting" before a
team can expect any support at all.
Here stale jokes, third-rate crooners
and two-bit dance bands pander to
their debased tastes, but when they
have jammed themselves into the
crowded auditorium and absorbed us
much free entertainment as they can
salvage from the sporadic rowdyism
in their own ranks, they leave with
a feeling of superior acuteness because they have "put something over"
and got something for nothing, not
intending to go to the game anyway,
This cheap skate philosophy is
largely to be laid at the door of the
upper years. They do not attend
sports themselves, and through the
decline of class organizations into
mere convening committees for annual dances, there is no medium left
through which to impress on the
freshmen as they come in each year,
the fact that they are expected to do
their part, not only to uphold athletics, but all otner Varsity institutions. The energies that used to be
ibvoted to these causes have been
diverted to the scores of clubs and
associations that swarm on the campus for the advancement of this, that,
ancl   the  other  freak   project.
Is it too much to ask the hundreds
of Supreme Potentates of these crusading circuses to take a little time
off from the objectives that range
through th. alphabet, all the way
from Aeronautics to Zoology, ancl do
a little for the only cause on the
campus that seems to lack supporters
entirely, that of the University of
British Columbia?

Sitting Bull knows a thing or two.
At Hi-Jinx he was asked to "be around" should anything happen. For a
while he stood inside taking in everything, but when he tired of that he
went outside to chew the rag with
some of the boys. When the first
sounds of combat reached him from
the gym he took to his heels and vanished in a cloud of dust. They found
him in the vicinity of the library and
"What'd you do that for?"
"Those women'll be needing help
in a minute," he replied smugly.
This is an old one but it's still
good and perhaps somebody hasn't
heard it yet. Nelson was collecing at

And here's another one on that
same Sun reporter. She mentioned going into the "Lower Women's Common

A senior named John Smith (to
you) went to the dentist's the other
day to replace some teeth he lost in
the game last Saturday. The dentist
showed him a set priced at ten dollars.
"But I'm broke," complained Smith,
"Haven't you any buck teeth?"

been able to examine it, this purpose
has been lost sight of.
It is shameful to have to admit that
most of the undergraduates cannot
express the most elementary idea on
paper without mangling their native
tongue but it is so. This gives point
to the complaints that I have heard
over the compulsory English course
in the Commerce Department. The
students enrolled In this Department
want a course in Business English,
instead of being forced to take one
with a literary angle, as at present.
The English Department is overworked at present, but would it not
be worth considering the sacrifice of
even some one of the important
courses they are now giving, and substituting on. in elementary composition, so that the average graduate
might go forth into the world with
the proud, unusual distinction of
being able to read and write?
I thought I'd go to Hi Jinx as a
boy so borrowed my brother's sweater
and also a pair of pants which he complained I'd stretched all out of shape
which I don't see how I could as I
had to roll up the pants as it was and
wrap the belt around me about six
times. Well when I got there there
were only about two hundred other
girls there dressed in sweaters and
pants so I felt very original, the way
you do. The only really bad break I
made was doing my imitation of Mae
West out in the middle of the floor
with about ten boys looking in the
window and was my face red though
this is a very mean thing to do as
there are some costumes only for
for women. When the fight started I
was dumb enough to run out in the
front rank hoping I'd get a crack
at that nasty Bud Jones who passed
me up at the frosh. Well the result
was that I was all mixed up among
the men and the men knew I was a
girl and the girls thought I was a boy
and did I take a beating; One happy little creature dumped a gollon
of lemonade on my head and as if
that wasn't enough another droop
came at me with a pair of siccors
and before I could even get the
breath to yell help had cut off a
chunk of my hair big enough to
stuff a couch and my favorite spit
curl with it. I never thought I knew
so many swear-words off-hand but
I do know I went at it for about ten
minutes solid without repeating myself once and when I ran out of breath
who should be standing beside me
but the Dean. Well I just withered up
to about half my size and out I snuck
on my flat feet with my ears sizzling
like a waffle iron. Anyway I hope
they'll have Hi Jinx next year some
other time than the night before the
Science Ball so one will have time
to grow their hair again.
The gentleman is improving his
I score every day. He just made an

Victoria Rep. and Varsity Draw Again
Varsity   Hoop
Squad Win
Varsity came through with the expected victory over the McKenzie-
Fraser squad Saturday night by a
score of 35-19. The game showed the
student hoopsters up to rather better
advantage than the games in the last
two weeks have done. Getting back
some of their usual form they had no
difficulty In trouncing the Royal City
First Half Slow
The first half was rather slow as
the Fraser lads reverted from their old
flashy type of play and played a careful game. This held the scoring low,
leaving Varsity with a lead of 13-8.
During the second half the students
broke away and showing some of their
former brilliance they managed to win
the game with a score of 35-19. The
zone system of defence worked considerably better than it did in the
game against the Adanacs and the
visitors were kept from running up
any considerable score.
Wiiloughby Shines
The Varsity offense seizing every
opportunity worked several flashy
plays. Wiiloughby was the outstanding
player for the students and getting
back to his former speed he left the
Fraserites in the back ground on several plays, to amass a total of 11

Enters Finals
Varsity defeated the East India
Hockey Club at Connaught Park Saturday by the score of 4-2, thereby
entering the final of the O.B. Allan
Cup with the Cricketers.
The game started off at a fast pace,
with Green, Varsity goal, making a
brilliant save. Then play turned to
the other end and Banns opened the
score for Varsity after ten minutes
of play. About ten minutes from half
time Banns added a second goal. This
completed the scoring and Varsity
led 2-9 at half time.
The Indian Club opened at a fast
pace and scored twice in the first
twenty minutes of the final period to
even the score. With but seven minutes to go Varsity's out-side left
scored the winning goal and two minutes later Banns added another goal
to complete the scoring.
For Varsity: Blackaller at full-back
Ono at center-half, and Banns in the
forward line, turned in best performances.
The team: Green, Blackaller, Bremner, Ritchie, Ono, Ames, Banns,
Vance and Hoicha.

Tie Renfrew
Showing a decided improvement on
the form of its last few starts, Varsity drew 1-1 with the strong Renfrew Argyles on the letter's home
ground on Saturday, in a regular V.
and D. fixture.
Varsity won the toss and chose to
kick uphill. The ground was sloppy
in places but the weather was well-
nigh perfect. On Jock Waugh's nonappearance MacDougall was moved
Into the full-back slot, Costain start-
ting at inside-left, and Sutherland on
the right wing. The rest of the Blue-
shirts were in their old positions.
Students Attack Early
The game started at a fast clip, and
the Students were the first io attack,
but Renfrew retaliated quickly. McGill was early prominent with) heady
clearances, while Todd looked dangerous on the left wing. The Argyles
half-line, composed of three former
Pacific Coast Leaguers, gave Varsity
endless Worry, yet their best efforts
were of no avail, owing mainly to
the splendid defence of the Collegians. Gardiner, at inside right for
Renfrew, also did many nice things
in this half and was ably supported
by Moffatt on his wing.
It was on a touch-line centre from
Moffatt   that  the    Argyles    obtained
their   marker,   when   Kirkham,   their
centre-forward, converted a close call
[after about 25 minutes of play. Var-
'sity then took the ball to the other
I end and both Todd and Martin had
hard luck with their shots on goal.
j At   this   stage   Costain  and   Stewart
, changed  places,  and  the  latter  was
unfortunate not to score soon after.
I    Sutherland Scores Before Whistle
j    With but a minute to go before the
interval Sutherland beat two defenders in the penalty area and drove a
| low shot directly at Lawrie, which
the elongated  goalie failed to hold.
The  teams turned around with the
score reading 1-1.
j   Although the second stanza was de-
< void of goals, it was nevertheless just
as fast and as interesting as the first.
| Students Dominate At First
I For the first twenty minutes Var-
'sity completely dominated the play,
the halves, lead by Wolfe, combining
very effectively with the forwards,
now aided by Smith (who took Sutherland's place) and the backs boot-
, ing finely.
'   Todd   was  again  unlucky   not   to
score   when  his   terrific   first-timer
, was  barely  saved   by   the  opposing
custodian,   while   Martin   shot   wide
from a fair position,
Argyles Press At End
Here the tide of battle turned visibly. As the Students weakened, so
the Argyles became more and more
aggressive, until towards the end they
practically penned Varsity ln their
own half of the field. But for occasional sallies, Varsity's attack lost
its power, for Wolfe, with sore leg
muscles, was forced to move up to
the forward-line while Kozoolin
dropped back into the pivot position.
The defense, however, held out gallantly till the final whistle, and Varsity shared the points.
Renfrew Half Line Good
For  Renfrew  the  entire  half-line
was most useful, while Gardiner and
Moffatt caught the eye on the forward line.
The whole team performed well for
Varsity, with McGill, MacDougall,
ancl Greenwod outstanding in the
back division, Wolfe on the intermediate line, and Todd on the attack.
Tlie teams.' Renfrew—Lawrie (B);
Pruss and Lawrie (J); Rys, Heath
and Christians Moffatt, Gardiner,
Kirkham, Chestnut, and Bennett.
Varsity — Greenwood; McGill, MacDougall; Thurber, Wolfe, and Costain; Sutherland (Smith), Kozoolin,
Martin, Stewart, and Todd.

Varsity Scrum Good
Th. Varsity scrum played well, th.
work of Pearson, Senkler ancl Maguire being especially outstanding.
The threes as a unit played poorly,
but individually they showed well.
Al. Mercer shone. Jimmy Pyle, considering the fact that it was his first
attempt at the full-back position,
handled well, Macdonald, Turgoose
and Mclnnis were outstanding for thc
The following were the lineups:

Will Rowing's
Ranking Be
Since the recent promotion of soccer to a major sport there has arisen
some discussion about the status of
other sports. The status of rowing
is one case about which there has
been considerable argument.
Rowing enthusiasts claim and apparently not without some justification that rowing has not received the
attention and support it deserves. At
present it is rated as a sub minor
sport and as such its followers receive little support from tha. Alma
Mater Society.
Last year Ned. Pratt, President of
the boat club this year, received a
Big Block for his outstanding performance when he represented Canada at the Olympic games. It is felt
that if the rating of rowing was raised
that the increasing interest would
produce a high calibre of rowing,
with the possibility of more champions being produced.
Throughout the United States and
in England rowing is recognized as
a major sport. If rowing could ba
encouraged on this campus there is
no reason why inter-collegiate competitions could not be arranged. At
present the Varsity Rowing Club
competes with the University of
Washington, but only with the lighter crews. Conside-ing the handicaps
under which the sport is conducted
at this campus tlv. showing made by
the Blue and Gold crews had been
We would suggest that when considering the re-rating of University
sport activities that tho Men's Athletic Executive consider the status of
rowing and if possible raise its ranking.
At present there are over thirty
students turning out for rowing.
Considering the turnout for other
sports if participating in a sport is any
criterion of the ranking it should receive rowing deserves a boost.
j Cross Country To
Be Staged
With the sound of the gun at 3:20
tomorrow afternoon, the Cross Country Race, the most gruelling event ln
the track program, will get under
way. The race wil be run rain or
shine. Inter-faculty rivalry should
flare up in this race, especially since
the recent escapades committed by
the Sciencemen. A large number of
deep-lunged athletes are expected to
do their stufY in their efforts to win.
Runners Trained Hard
During the past two weeks or so,
many of the long distance runners
have been in training for the event.
Often have they been seen pounding
the cinders of the Oval in an attempt
to improve their endurance. There
will be fences to climb, miniature
lakes to wade through, and ditches to
leap. It is ''oped that the frosh will
turn out and show their seniors just
what they can do.
Points To Count Towards Cup
Ten points will be awarded the winner, nine the second man, and so on,
the winning class getting two points
towards the Governor's Cup. The
class finishing second will receive one
point towards the Cup. "Hie race is
scheduled to start! and finish in front
et the Administration building. A
large crowd is expected to watch t>>e
competitors struggle in to a finish.
Commerce Looks Good
Commerce, who won the race last
year, will again have a strong representative in the race, with Sid Swift
and Herb Barclay their chie. entries.
Sid was the lad who ploughed in first
last year. Alfie Allen will do his
bit for Science. Other track stalwarts
who are entering the race will be
John Y. Smith, George Allen, Dave
Pugh and Phil Northcott. Dave Carey
will return to the University to take
part in this race, and to show what
the Alumni can do,
Jack Chappelle is the present record
holder, having run the course in 15
minute, and 13 seconds. Let's hope
the weather stays good so ti'ere will
be a possibility of the record being
broken. Last year's race was run in
thc snow, but there is not much
chance of that occuring this year.
Arts '20 Relay Feb. 28
Track men are eagerly anticipating
•the coming Arts '20 relay which will
come off on Wednesday, February 28.
It is still necessary that some, more
classes enter their representatives for
this race. Every year each class has
its own entries, and the tradition
should not be broken. Competitors are
asked to provide their own cars to
accompany them throughout the race,
as it is impossible for Sid Swift, who
is organizing the relay, to provide 28
