REVISION BOARD PLANS
REFORMED AMS COUNCIL
•   A DISCUSSION of membership on the Student Council
and presentation of an additional plan for Student Government formed the agenda of the Wednesday open meeting
of the Student Government Revision Board.
Ted   English,   president   of   the .
MILLER NEW TREASURER
Players' Club outlined a constitution which is essentially a compromise between UBC's present
Student Council and the two reports presented at the recent General AMS meeting.
Jim Wilson, chairman of the
constitution Board pointed out
that in 1924-25, representatives of
Aggie, Arts and Science existed
on Council but were dropped the
next year.
Discussion of the presence of
the CURMA president on Council
foUowed. Mr. Wilson stated that
h would foster amlablenesa between returned men and the general student body. As soon as the
ex-servioemen have been assimilated, this office would be
dropped.
As a substitute for the office of
MUS, a representative of the faculties elected only by the executives of these faculties might take
office on Council. This officer
might be termed Coordinator of
Undergraduate Faculties, or President of a Permanent Board of
Student Representation, Wilson
stated.
Returned Men
"Have Ability
For Success"
• BUFFALO (UP)-Veterans of
this war in attendance at the
University of Buffalo were praised
for their adaptability to college
life today by Dean of Men Edward
S. Jones.
"Military service does not dull
a person's aptitude for college
training—the returned soldier may
have forgotten much of his previous education, but a little 'refreshing' is all he needs," he said.
He stated that tha average ability level of veterans is close to
that of other entering students.
They have the ability to succeed,
but need a little more time to
catch up on basic subjects, records showed.
The university has 75 veterans
enrolled, of which 40 are In full-
time courses. Sixty per cent have
had no previous college training
except service training, which may
or may not yield them college
credits.
CURMA Meets In
Armouries Friday
• THERE WILL be a special
meeting of CURMA for all ex-
servicemen and RCAF Reserve
men Friday, February 16. It will
be held in the lecture room of the
armouries at the north-east corner of the building. Matters of
special Interest will be discussed,
and all men should make an effort to attend.

FORESTRY EXPANSION
INDICATED, SAYS SCHULTZ
•   AT NO OTHER time has the practice of forestry in
British Columbia held fflrth such promise to forestry
graduates according to Charlie Schultz, consulting forester
and former graduate of UBC. 	
In an address given to the
Forestry Club Monday he
pointed out that expansion
of forestry practice is indicated by the Royal Commission Enquiry now progressing under Chief Justice
Sloan and in the establish-,
ment of a separate Department of Forestry coordinating with the present Department of Forests and Lands.
HOPES FOR FULL FACULTY
"The UBC Forest Department is
now receiving increased financial
support and I hope to see the day
when   a  full   faculty   of  forestry
will  be erected on the campus,"
he said.
Schulto explained that some
of the ever Increasing problems
of our forthcoming timber policy Include the regeneration of
timber, management of forests,
cutting policy and adequate Insect, fungi and Are protection.
Describing his profession he gave
the  club an  idea of what is In
store for graduates in forestry.
He particularly emphasized that
a forester must be physically fit,
taking as an example one of his
forest   surveys    in    the   Selkirk
Mountains where he found himself
lost in the snow with but half a
bar of chocolate to keep him from
starvation.
NEED GENERAL KNOWLEDGE
Schultz also stressed the importance of all phases of logging, milling, timber and lumber sales and
general business methods. "In this
respect a forester must be a jack
of all trades," he said.
He described the time when he
was timber exchange representative in the West Indies,
He stated that most of the people
in Jamaica during the boom following the last war had never
heard of British Columbia and
some thought that Douglas' Fir was
the name of some city in Canada.
In order to sell his product he
had to become diplomat, salesman,
mechanic and shipper.

Highlands, Tex.
Caver met up with the bass
while swimming in the waters off
this island base. The fish had
been partially stunned by a dynamite charg?, but was still alive
end flapping,
The Texas soldier, ever mindful
that his friends would say, "seeing
is believing," clamped a half-nelson and body press on the bass
and then calmly brought -him to
shore.

the Piranis, attended UBC last
year and attained considerable
prominence as being the youngest
student ever registered at the University.
He left for London last year after completing his second year in
Arts when his father was appointed to the music department of
the University of Western Ontario.
UBC's Stamp Album Outlines Canadian History
• THE UNIVERSITY of British
Columbia has a little known
attraction hidden away in the
vault in the Registrar's Office. This
is a collection of Canadian stamps,
dating back from before the confederation.
This collection is available for
scrutiny by students at any time,
provided it is not taken away from
the office. The stamps are housed
in a fairly large leather - bound
book, with a gilt title,
HOPED TO CONTINUE
Inside, is a brief torch thrown to
the originator's successors:
"It is hoped:
1    That the President of the University  will  keep  in  continual
existence a Committee to take
charge of these Stamps.
.   That the Committee will:
(a)   Arrange for thc safe custody of the Collection.
(b>   Add, regularly, the stamps
that may from time to
time be issued in Canada.
(c) Endeavour to secure,
through gift or otherwise,
any stamps of Canada that
will add to the completeness of the Collection.
STILL IN PENCE
The first stamps in the album
were issued in Queen Victoria's
reign, before confederation. The
date inscribed is 1851, and they
were still issued in pence until
the 1855-58 issue.
Thc Map Issue, Christmas
1898, has a map of the world,
with the Inscription "We hold
an empire vaster than has *bcen
before."
Prominent during the reign of
King Edward VII was the Qu«bec
Tercentary Issue of 1908. The issue has a wide variety of heads
and scenes, among them are the
King and Queen, Jacques Cartier,
Champlain, Montcalm and Wolfe,
and a scene of Quebec in 1700.
A change of colours and denominations came during King George
Vs reign. The Confederation Issue, 1927, carries pictures of Sir
John A. Macdonald, the Quebec
Conference of 1867, Sir Wilfred
Laurier, and a map of Canada.
Another set, the Historical Set,
came out during that same year,
nnd included in the collection are
stamps bearing likenesses of D'Arcy McGee, Baldwin and Fontaine.
FIRST AIRMAIL STAMP
The first airmail stamp in .the
university collection appears in the
1928 group. Along with it is a
special British Columbia Airways
Limited   Air   Mail  stamp,   of  five
cent value, which had to be paid
in addition to the regular postage.
Another pictorial issue, issued in
1930, is in the collection of George
Vs stamps. This shows scenes of
Quebec Citadel, Mount Edith
Cavell, (in Jasper National Park),
and several other historical spots
in Canada.
It can be seen from the album
that the airmail fee was raised to
6c in 1932.
In 1934 a special two cent brown
stamp was issued to commemorate
the 150th anniversary of the founding of Ne\V Brunswick.
ROYAL JUBILEE ISSUE
To celebrate the silver jubilee
of King George in 1935 another
special issue was printed, bearing
pictures of Princess Elizabeth, the
Duke of York, tiie King and
Queen, The, Prince of Wales, Windsor Castle, and the royal yacht,
'Britannia'. Another special issue
that same year bore a picture of
the Parliament Buildings at Victoria.
Also contained in the collec
tion Is the Coronation Issue of
1937, carrying the likenesses of
King George VI and Queen
Elizabeth.
The entrance to Vancouver Harbor adorned one denomination of
another pictorial issue released in
1938, and following it is the Royal
Visit Issue.
COLONIAL STAMPS
At the back of the large volume
are stamps from several of the
Colonies before confederation.
There are some from New Brunswick, dating back to 1851, three
issues of Prince Edward Island,
1861. '68, and '72. The British Columbian contribution to this part of
the book is an 1865 three penny
blue, Newfoundland is also represented.
Many an interesting hour can be
spent poring over this book, looking at the variety of stamps, the
changes  in size and style.   When
looking at them, one can wonder
how the postal system was carried
on in those days. Some evidence
is shown by the cancellation marks,
a few of which are merely pen-
and-ink 'x's.
Wonder about the methods of
carrying the mail, and speculation as to the type of carrier
used are conjured up In thc
mind by gazing at the university's collection, and those who
like to sec what the stamp
looked like In the fine details
need not worry about heavy
cancellation, because the
stamps are carried in duplicate,
the first page being the collector's pieces, the cancelled
stamps, while the second page
carries original, unmarked
copies.
It is worth while to look at
them, for that is what they are
there for. Additions of rare stamps
will be gladly accepted. EDITORIAL PAGE ....
. . . THE UBYSSEY . . .
FEBRUARY 15, 194S
Our Part of the Bargain
Last Monday, bringing to an end a
twenty-year lapse of memory, the province
of British Columbia remembered its university. Premier Hart announced in the
provincial legislature that his government
intends to spend $5,000,000 on new buildings
and faculties for UBC.
Students, faculty members and alumni
from all over the province send their grateful thanks. It has been a long twenty years.
The University of British Columbia will
soon become a real university in every sense
of the word. It will be the center of learning
for all of B.C., to which young men and
women will gravitate for education essential
to the future of the province. It will take
the lead in the settlement and understanding
of provincial problems through the medium
of extensive study and research. Unbiased
and completely objective, the university can
provide a great service to British Columbia.
It is up to us and the students who will
follow to justify the faith which the people
have placed in the university. Five million
dollars is a lot of money. The province will
expect dividends in the form of well-educated young men and women. Let us do as
much as we can to fulfil our part of the
bargain.
Borrowed Education
A new idea for UBC, long-needed in
this province, is the government's revolving
fund plan io aid students with their education. This was announced in the speech
from the throne at the recent opening of the
provincial legislature.
Students who show gleams of brilliancy
will borrow the difference between a minimum budget and the amounts which their
families can provide or wtych they can earn.
Borrowers will be asked to repay the advances within a reasonable time of graduation so that the money can be kept in continuous motion as a public investment.
There have always been many students
at this university who either earn their way
through four years of varsity or receive aid
from unselfish parents who should be spending their money elsewhere.
Hardship has fallen on many families in
B.C. as a result of sending a son or daughter
to university. Many a student could have
done much better if he had not had financial
worries on his mind. Then there are also
those who never had the chance to pass
through university gates.
The government should be commended
for its progressive attitude toward education.
This action may well be the crest of a new
wave of the future which will see many
opportunities for education opened up to
those who have been denied these advantages in the past.
The Unfortunate "Flat Hat"
It was interesting to read in a downtown
paper the other day that the "Flat Hat",
student newspaper of the College of William
and Mary, had been temporarily suspended
for editorial precociousness.
Because it is so very seldom that college editors stick their editorial necks out,
except on campus issues, we feel a certain
measure of pity for the "Flat Hat".
It seems they had the outright impertinence to suggest that "the time should come
when negroes should attend the college, join
the same clubs, be our room-mates, pin the
same classmates and marry among us".
In B.C., this would be enough to start
an evening of stimulating conversation. But
our friends of the "Flat Hat" unfortunately
mentioned it in Virginia.  The faculty, no
doubt prodded by a score of colonels, immediately took action. We anxiously await
news of the fate of "Flat Hat", even more
than we did that of Flat Top.
To some people this incident might seem
only humorous, but this condition exists in
almost every community of the world and
constitutes a most effectual censorship of
free thought. Think what would happen if
The Ubyssey presented the same ideas in
respect to the Japanese.
We have enough respect for the faculty
to know they would not use suspension, but
the cry from campus, city and provincial
groups would be enough to damn any editor
into eternal sin. Public opinion sometimes
exerts a bad influence on freedom of the
press.
PEEPER'S PAPERS
• I WAS SPENDING the evening in the
Library studying one of my more difficult problems of aesthetical research when
the difficulties which I encountered suddenly overwhelmed me and in disgust I pushed
the book I was perusing so violently from
me that it slid off the side of the reading-
table onto the hard stone floor. The volume
was a small one and came to rest in a closed
position. I was greatly relieved to see that
the leaves had not been sullied nor torn and
that the binding was in no wise weakened.
It has always been a very natural antipathy
of mine to observe the treatment that many
irresponsible students give to the often
precious volumes entrusted to their care.
After observing for a moment the irrationality of my behaviour I reflected that
only the most futile satisfactions could be
derived from trying to do a book harm, or
for that matter any inanimate object that
had in some way frustrated a particular
whim or inclination. Students of my acquaintance often startle me by such acts
as tearing up difficult examination papers,
or striking with the foot, the tire of an auto-
moble which has become deflated. It has
always been a source of amusement to observe traits which I deplore in others apparent in myself.
I was suddenly interrupted from these
pleasant reflections by the sharp clicking
of heels busily approaching from the direction of the stairs, leading a lower level. As
I sat listening to the footsteps they reminded me of nothing so much as the authoritarian march of the school monitor. My
reflections proved correct as a young woman
stopped at the entrance of my carrel and
demanded, in peremtory tones, to know just
what I thought I was doing by causing the
din and commotion in the stacks. She asked
'further if I didn't realize that these cubicles
were intended for serious work and not for
such frivolous exploits as book-dropping.
She went on to declare that such students
as she assumed me to be, should not have
the use of this particular area in the Library
as they do nothing but annoy and distract
the student who, and this is her exact term,
"was trying to get an education".
Be ing of a shy and retiring nature I was
. . . by PEEPER
taken aback by this blast of impassioned
rhetoric from so competent a creature and
was unable to make a reply for some seconds. But as she sttod there in the entrance,
arms akimbo, defiantly surveying my
humble attitude and contemptuously regarding my somewhat disorganized notes, I gathered that she expected an apology or at
least a valid excuse. I dislike such personally unpleasant contacts and have spent my
years at Varsity scrupulously avoiding them.
From long habit I apologized as best I
could for my behaviour. She smiled down
at me for a few minutes in a triumphant
manner and then making a noise like a
steam kettle to insure that all about me
would take notice she minced off.
Although this may sound cowardly to
my readers I must admit that I was very
relieved to hear the clicking of her heels
receding down the staircase again.
I am one of those men who are cursed
or blessed with the ability to conjure up
marvellous answers and vicious retorts, or
if the occasion demands it, scathing insults
only after the affray is over. The French
call this peculiar power "l'esprit d'escalier"
and it is a very happy idiom.
While staring vacantly at my now reopened book I was annoyed to find myself
trying to construct retorts which would have
enabled me to acquit myself more ably.
Fortunately I ceased this fruitless rumination in time to catch the last bus back to
my lodgings and while taking my coffee the
next morning I reflected that certainly the
young lady had been the fool and not I. I
rationalized my position by trying to understand the motives which prompted her unsolicited and unthanked monitor service. I
remembered that she was not a singularly
attractive girl and one likely to die a maiden.
To put it mildly her personality was not
pleasant nor endearing, but of course allowances must be made for the seriousness of
my offence. Perhaps she were merely trying to assert herself over people in order to
make up in her own mind these social deficiencies which were so manifestly obvious.
At any rate I determined to forgive and
to try to understand because after all there
was some slight service to quietude of the
Library derived from her actions.

WAR CONTROLS
NECESSARY IN
POST-WAR ERA
• STATE COLLEGE, Pa.,
Feb. 15-(UP)-Contlnua-
tion of rationing and price controls beyond V-Day was advocated as "the only sure way to
avert postwar price inflation,"
by Dr. George L. Leffler, professor of economics at Pennsylvania State College.
"If the public, the government, and business can exercise good judgment and control
for six months to a year after
the return of peace," Dr. Leffler said, "our enormous productive capacity will counteract any tendency toward inflation by placing an abundance
of goods on the market."
The economist recommended
continuation of rationing controls until supplies are 90 per
cent normal in order to avert
a buying rush such as followed
the first World War. Although
he feels that none of the deluxe postwar "dream products"
will be available Immediately
after the war, he thinks the
initial postwar products will be
of a quality comparable to
those produced In 1942.

Western Ont. COTC
Gives Ski Training
• LONDON, Ont., Feb. 13-(CU
P)—Advanoed men of the CO
TC contingent at the University
of Western Ontario here will receive an elementary course In ski
training, Capt. F. H. B. Brown, of-
ficer-in-charge announces.
About 50 men are expected to
participate in this activity. Skis,
white parkas and other equipment
will be supplied by the army.
It is expected that the course
will cover only the basic fundamentals as many of the men have
had little skiing experience.
The coed giggled and wriggled.
"Oh stop it!" she cried, "You're
tickling, me."
"Aw, I can't help it," the Arts-
man replied, holding her a little

'WHAT A UV WAILS MANITOBAN
• WINNIPEG, Feb. 15- (CUP)
—Views of prominent legislators, faculty members and students on the pots-war future of
the University of Manitoba will
be aired at an open public meeting to be sponsored by the Manitoban, bi-weekly; student newspaper of the University.
With the permission of the University of Manitoba Student Union the Manitoban hopes to present at ths meeting the official
views of the Hon. S. S. Garson,
premier of Manitoba, Dr. H. P.
Armes, persldent of the university
and other leaders In government
and student life.
The Manitoban this week devoted almost Its entire Issue to a
discussion of the future of the
university, with the unofficial
views of many prominent leaders
in public and student life.
In a front page editorial the paper said that it would fight against
"this apathy that is strangling our
University, that Is dooming the
University and its students to a
haunting life-death of uniform

AMS CANDIDATES PRESENT PLATFORMS
L. S. E.
Jim Argue
• IF  ELECTED  LSE  president
I will do my best to help the
clubs meet the new interest which
Is sure to come with the return
of ex-servicemen and the building of dormitories by:
1. Seeing that a greater amount
of AMS funds are spent on clubs.
2. Holding for the benefit of
Freshmen and others Interested, a
Club Week during the frosh Initiation.
3. Co-ordinating the booking
system so that clashes occur as
infrequently as possible.
4. Following this year's lead ln
obtaining artists on tour to perform at the university, and by seeing that the interest taken in good
music is maintained.
5. Making the LSE as independent as possible ln regard to its
own finances.
Morris Berson
• I BELIEVE that the most important   task   that   any  LSE
president must perform is to see
to it that every student is engaged
in some form of campus life. For
no student can make any claim
to a full education if he has passed through his college years
without the stimulating and refreshing experiences and associations that campus organizations
provide. All other points are secondary. With this fundamental
fact in mind, I shall wholeheartedly concern myself with the vital task of making every attempt
to encourage student Interest in
all those campus organizations
concerned with art, science, literature, drama, public speaking,
current events, .and all other
forms of intellectual life, "Every
student a cog In a club"—the new
LSE motto.
Frederick R. Lipsett
• THE FOLLOWING is my platform as candidate  for president °f the Literary and Scientific
Executive for the session 1945-46:
My platform is partly based on
projects on which I have already
done some work:
1. Improvement of auditorium
facilities; this is advantageous not
only to clubs of the LSE but to
the university as a whole.
2. Provision of adequate club-
rooms where possible, in order to
give members regular mfieting-
places, and places in which to carry on practical work.
3. Continuation of the LSE's policy of presenting concert artists
and prominent organizations to the
students of the university.
4. Development of student enterprises, whether affecting only
the LSE or the entire student body.

not be misplaced.

SECRETARY
Ann Brown

to the usual dutbs of secretary,
do three main things.
The first—take charge of the
booking of rooms which clubs require for meetings.
The second—be active in assisting wi,th and supporting War Aid
Council projects such as ISS week
and the Blood Donor Drive.
The third—I would give my full

plan whereby the money from all
games and meets would be handled by the Athletic Organization
rather than by the treasurer of
the Alma Mater Society.
Sidney Flavelle

endeavor to carry out my platform to the best of my ability and
to exercise my vote on council in
the support of progressive student  government.
1. I firmly believe that an ex-
serviceman should be on student
council. Having returned to the
campus from the Navy, I feel that
I can do much to help veterans
become adjusted to campus life.
2. As president of the Freshman
class In the fall, I will see that
members are orientated to the
campus In a quicker and more
efficient manner than has been
the case In the past.

the Alumni Association particularly In planning their Homecoming.     »
4.1 will support any move to

5. I will give serious consideration to any plan put forward for
the revision of student government.
I respectfully submit the above
platform to the members of AMS.
Herb Capozzi

ability.  I will try:
1. To make the student orientation of such a type that it will appeal to the returned men as wall

2. To present a homecoming pro.
gram which will be directed more
to the older alumni than to the
students of the university.
3. To further any movement
which will give the control of athletic funds to the MAO.
4. To advocate a fairer division
of funds for the major and minor
clubs under LSE.
5. To assist in the advancement
of any organization that is working for the welfare of the students
and the university in general.
Ted Kirkpatrick
• 1. MY THREE years  In  various campaign." and drives such
as ISS week, the blood drive, the
Clean-Up campaign and Navy-
Week will assist me in carrying
on that type of work as Junior
Member.
2. Since the University Is judged by the appearance of the campus, I Intend to organize the Clean
•Up campaign on a wider and
more efficient basis.
3. I will continue the promotion
of Homecoming as a financially
profitable venture with a variety
of entertainment guaranteed ,to
increase the interest of the Alumni.
4. As Council's representative
on the Alumni Association Executive, I intend to present the alms
and suggestions of the student
body.
5. As Junior Member, will take
a large part in the freshmen orientation nnd will endeavor to
stimulate their interest in student
government.
M. A. D.
Ole Bakken
• IF I AM elected president of
the Men's Athletic Association,
I will endeavor to:
1. Establish more effective control by the MAD of its legitimate
share of Alma Mater Society
funds.
2. Provide for the purchase of
new strip for the athletic teams
as far as the athletic budget will
allow.
3. Appoint one of the student
representatives on MAD from rug.
by and the other from soccer, so
that all three major sports will
have equal student representation.
4. Help organize any sport, not
offered at present, which may be
desired by a sufficient number of
the student body.
5. Obtain more publicity for Intramurals and minor sports to encourage player and spectator interest.
D. Keith
MacDonald
• IF I am elected to the position  of president  of  MAA  I
shall attempt to fulfill the following platform.
1. Atempt to form a larger MAD
by having a representative from
all major sports.
(a) Cooperate with this
year's president of MAA in regard to the plan whereby the M
AD handles the finances of all
athletics.
3. Attempt to widen the scope of
Intramural sports by increasing
the number of players.
4. Try to lay a foundation for
post-war Inter-collegiate athletics
such as American and Canadian
football.
Kenneth F.
McPherson
•   IT IS evident that MAD must
be revised, pricipally:-
1. To Increase representation for
all major sports groups.
2. To gain more control over its
own finances. This means added
responsibility for its members,
therefore I propose to Instigate a
greater organized sports promotion
program involving:
(a) More inter-collegiate competition,
(b) More wide-spread publicity of Varsity Sports.
(c) Greater co-operation with
Inter-high school sports activities.
(d) Greater participation by
the average student In University sports.
I further believe that there
should be an extension of present
recreational athletic facilities to
be paid for with the present government grant.
W. A. D.
Catherine Deas
• AS a candidate for president
of the Women's Athletic Association I offer the following platform:
1. To endeavor to give the freshettes, as a part of freshman orientation, a better understanding of,

on the campus.
2. To enable students to have
more control of the Women's Athletics and to encourage a stronger
bond between WUS and WAA.
3. To strive for more general
participation of the Women Students In the sports activities.
Mary Ann Norton
• AS  CLUBS  Director  of  the
Women's Athletic Directory I
feel I have a working knowledge
of the alms and administrative
methods of the association. I
could make the following platform bring athletics within the
scope of the individual woman
student.
1. Co-operate in every possible
way with all campus-wide WUS
activities.
2. Strengthen the extended position of Intramurals.
3. Continue the policy of monthly  activities.
4. Work toward the establishment of a Physical Education Department and until such time, cooperate with the women students
in the War Work program.
5. Develop    more    extra-mural
competition within   the   limit  of    t
war-tune restrictions.
6. To every popular campus
sport I pledge my full support.

LUKE MOYLS
• IT  WAS  ONE  of those gala
nights down at King Ed Gym
Tuesday night what with officious-
looking gents making with presentations and such to the basketball stars of the year.
They picked
the right time
for it too. They
dished out all
the cups, prizes,
crests, shields,
and other silverware between the two
thrill - packed
halves of the
second battle of
the Intermediate A finals.
- It was an exciting affair from
start to finish, and this time the
freshman squad were playing for
keeps. They fought a tough fight,
but they did it wisely as well as
ferociously.
Big Herb Capozzi hit his usual
stride, making up for less bucket
baskets by sinking a goodly percentage of his free shots.
And Herb came up with a great
big grin when Wilf Moffat, minor
leagues commissioner, handed him
the trophy for the most valuable
man in the Inter A loop.
The big pivotman deserves the
•ward. He's worked hard for the
Chiefs all year, and as Bill Cunningham, the Province reporter
says, it wouldn't be surprising to
find Herb running Sandy Robertson a close race for the Senior A
•coring honors this year.
It was rather amusing when Wilf
called for a member of last year's
Arrow team In order to give them
the crests for their 1943-44 championship. Two of them were on
the Chiefs' bench.
Freddy Bossons went out to pick
up the wards, and Fred picked up
plenty of points as the UBC boys
evened the playoff at one game
each. He notched 17 for high tally of the tilt.
• CUFF GUFF — According to the
News H, Capozzi was playing a-
galnst himself Tuesday night . . .
A Higbie hooper In one paragraph,
he turns out to be one of the
Chiefs In another . . . Must be a
green reporter on the job . . . And
speaking of green stuff, UBC boxers will get a chance to move Into the Lime-light during ISS week
. . . The fisticuff show calls for
six beak-busters, one from each
faculty, to take part In the gala
noon hour tourney . . . They tell
me they're going to hold the Pub-
Council fiasco about that time,too
... In that case, hoop fans are reminded to put their money on the
Pubsters . . . However, the promoters insist on fancy costumes,
such as Canadian Football uniforms, complete with cleated
boots . . . After all, if the girls
can tap dance in the gym with
steel plates on their shoes, certainly the boys should be allowed to
wear track shoes . . . The floor has
already withstood Capozzi's bare
feet in the Inter A practises . . .
Crusha da grapes, eh Hoib? . . .
Downtowners think therj were a
lot of cagers who came out to
Varsity this year . . . Just wait
till they see next year's list . . .
After speaking to the boys down
at King Ed Tuesday, I figure on
a new Inter B lineup, two Inter
A squads and a new set of Thunderbees besides the Varsity Thunderbirds next season . . . For close
competition, I give you the intramural finals ... If you don't believe me, drop around to the Stadium Friday at noon when Kappa
Sigs and Epsilons tangle for the
Touch Football crown.

UBC RUGBY SQUADS
MEET CRIMSON TIDE
• VARSITY   Thunderbirds   can
cop the McKechnie Cup, after
a lean period of seven years, on
Saturday when they meet the
Crimson Tide of Victoria in the
Capital City. Varsity's second team
plays an all-star college squad on
the same program.
Dan Doswell, brilliant braintrust
of this year's Blue and Gold fifteen, has given the players some
terrific workouts this week and
expects them to be in the best of
shape.
The college backfield, which
has been showing up well In
Boston Bruins
Stop Chihawks
• BOSTON BRUINS ran wild in
the second stanza of Tuesday
night's only NJLL. game, to edge
out a 3-2 victory over the Chicago
Black Hawks. After a scoreless
first period the Bruins banged
home three big goals ln the second, and then held the Chicago
sextete to a pair of counters in
the flnal canto.
At the half way mark of the
second period, Herb Cain intercepted a Chicago pass, and scored
on his solo rush to open the scoring for Boston. A few minutes
later, Bill Cowley converted Dit
Clapper's pass into the Black
Hawk net, making the count 2-0.
The third Boston goal was accounted for by rookie Armand
mand Gaurhault, assisted by Roz-
zini and Shekchuck.
Boston's victory over the Hawks
Cave them a six-point lead over
the New York Rangers, who In
turn have a one-point lead over
the Black Hawks.
Tisdall Cup gamei as well as
In practice, Is expected to give
the Crimson boys plenty of
trouble. Bob Croll,. freshman
star and former Byng threat
back In Canadian Football, has
been moved to Johnny Wheeler's scrum half position to give
the 'Birds additional speed In
the three line.
Len Mitten is back after a three
week layoff and his tremendous
plunging ability will strengthen
the line immensely. Len suffered
a back injury, while leading hi/
UBC teammates to a lopsided victory over Ex-Byng a few weeks
back, rolling down the field in
reckless fashion to two trys.
A move that on the surface
might seem surprising, ls the addition ot young Jack Armour to the
three line at wing three-quarter in
place of Don Ralston. However,
Jack has been travelling in high
gear for the last two weeks while
the speedy Ralston, although showing a great fighting spirit, has
suffered from lack of proper
training.
With the rounding Into top
shape of Keith MacDonald, one
of the finest scrum artists ,to
ever set foot on the campus)
Victoria will be at a great disadvantage In Varsity's third
game of the series. If there
happened to be a trophy ••
warded to the most valuable
player in the league, MacDonald would undoubtedly be
one of the top nominees because of his inspiring leadership.
The forwards will be Bob Law-
son, Dave Morgan, Al Jones, Joe
Pegues, Harry Kabush, Keith MacDonald, Cam Coady, and Bill Wallace. The backflelders will be Bob
Croll at receiving half; Maury
Moyls, five-eighths; Len Mitten
and Jack McKercher, inside three-
quarters; Tom McCusker and Jack
Armour, wings; and Jim Hughes,
fullback.
HOOPMEN PLAY
PLAYOFF TILTS
SATURDAY
• BASKETBALL comes back to
the Varsity maple courts Saturday night when the second
games of the Senior A semi-finals
are to be played. The 'Birds play
Higbies, and Lauries Pie-Rates
meet the Chiefs In the other feature.
The first games of the series were
played last night at King Ed Gym.
It might be the last game for one
or two of the teams ln Senior A
ball this year.
Art Johnson's Chiefs are In the
midst of a series with the Higbiemen and feel that they should be
In good condition to take on the
Pirates In Saturday's game. The
mighty 'Birds will be out for the
title of City Champions and they
plan to eliminate the men of Milton. It should be a grand night of
hoopla.
NOTICE
The picture of "The Gondoliers",
which appeared in the Tuesday issue of The Ubyssey, was taken

•   BIG   CHIEF— When
UBC Chiefs won their
game from Higbies' in th£
Inter A finals Tuesday night,
Bruce Yorke, above, was
one of the chief Chiefs to
help in the victory. Bruce
came through with two und-
derhand shots, racing in
under the hoop to score
when the Higbiemen threatened in the final canto.
LAMBDAS
SNOOKER
• THE LOWLY Lambda fnally
found something to shout a-
bout when their Doug Davidson
was crowned champion of the campus snooker players. Doug gave
a fine display of what relaxation
can do for a snooker player's game.
While his opponents blew up under the strain, Doug joked and
laughed his way to victory.
The main victim of the nervous
strain was Roy Bushfleld. After
disposing of Abbott and Robertson
in very close contests, the Phi
Kappa Pi entry faded in the finals
losing to Davidson 55-17.
In the meantime, Kappa Sigma gained a little ground on
on the Mu Phi boys In the
snooker tournament. Sandy
Robertson stuck right through
to the semi-finals to pick up
30 points while the Mu Phi
entry bowed out In the first
round.
The biggest item on the Intramural schedule this week is the
touch football finals between Epsilon   and   Kappa   Sigma   Friday
Big Herb Wins Trophy
by Laurie Dyer
V&D CAGERS HONOR CAPOZZI
• TUESDAY NIGHT was a big
night for "King Kong" Capozzi, big pivot man of the UBC
Chiefs. Not only did our Herb
come through with his usual good
ball game netting 14 points, but
Herb also found himself on the
receiving end of the coveted a-
v/ard for the most valuable player in the Inter A Division.
The cup is awarded anually to
the player whom the players consider to be the most valuable asset to their team as well as being
a good sport and being popular
with the casaba fans. Herb is all
of these and then same.
POPULAR CAGER
His big smile and genuine
friendliness have brought him a
great deal of the popularity that
he has gained at Vanity. No one
ever doubted his ability when he
was unanimously elected president
of the Freshman Class.
Herb also plays a grand game
of  ball  on  the  maple  courts.
The husky centre man can usually   be   depended   upon   to
come  through  with  a  goodly
number of counters.
Before the game his husky voice
can   b?   heard   asking   the   boys
"How  many points do you want
me   to   score    tonight,   fellows?"
Amazingly enough, he can usually
do just what he sets out to do.
ALL-ROUND ATHLETE
Up in Kelowna where Herb
comes from, he is one of the best-
liked ball players in the town.
When the Chiefs travelled into the
Interior this winter, Herb was
right in there with his Inevitable
scoring power to show the hometown folks what the "Big City"
had done for him.
Kelowna can also be proud
of a great swimmer. In fact
there arc not many sports Herb
doesn't play well. Last year,
he made a name for himself
playing American Football with
the boys from Vancouver Col
lege. Then there Is baseball
and, well—you could go on
forever.
Last year it was the College
quintet that Herb played with.
The Fighting Irish met the Arrow
jquadin the Inter A finals. Herb
was one of the boys that made it
tough for the Transfermen when
the series went to the full five
games.
There's not a person on the cam-
pu;: that won't tell you that Herb
is a great boy whether he's on
the floor or not. All in all, it
seems that the league officials
and newspaper reporters made no
mistake in picking Herb Capozzi as
the most valuable player in the
Inter A League this year.

Bossons Leads
Tribe To Knot
Inter A Finals
• UBC'S CHIEFS came back to
life Tuesday night when they
came out victorious over Ted Milton's Higbies by a score of 45-41.
Both teams have now won one
game in the best-of-flve finals for
the Inter A championship.
Playing one of their best games
of the season, the Students were
never- seriously threatened after
the third quarter. Down 13-11 at
the end of the first quarter after
the usual slow start, the Chiefs
came back strong to outscore the
Higbiemen 10-5 for a 21-18 lead at
the breather.
CAPOZZI HOT
The third canto was the big one
however as the Chiefs went on the
rampage to score 13 points while
Higbies kept in the fight with nine.
Big Herb Capozzi came Into his
true form, scoring seven of the
Students' markers.
Going Into the flnal quarter
with a seven-point bulge, the
Chiefs kept up • steady, methodical game. But Higbies were
not to be discouraged. Checking
was close and hard as the Miltonmen netted 13 points while
the Chiefs took 11 in the last
canto.
It was the work of Bruce Yorke
that came in handy for the Blue
and Gold when he swished two
baskets in a row by cutting under
the hoop to net valuable counters
when the Higbie quintet threatened.
BREAK UP ZONE
Noteworthy in the Students'
game was their sudden ability to
sink free throws. They came in
very handy as the Chiefs enjoyed
a near perfect night at the foul
strip.
Coach Art Johnson deserves
a lot of credit for breaking up
the previously Infallible Higbie
zone.    The   boys   had   Uttle
trouble finding the free man
with   snappy   three • cornered
passing plays that had the Higbie squad baffled.
Fred Bossons was high man for
the Chiefs netting 17 points with
his one hand push shot.  Fred has
the rather amazing ability of stopping in mid air to flip his shots
up in a rather unorthodox manner
which   is   nearly   impossible   to
check.   The big pivot man, Herb
Capozzi enjoyed another hot night
swishing 14.   Gordy Lynn had 17
for the Higbiemen.
CHIEFS — Stevenson 6, Fenn,
Swanson, Haas, Blake, Yorke 8,
Bossons 17, Capozzi 14, Cowan.
Total 45.
HIGBIES - Holden 9, Ross,
Hetham 3, Hake, Ryan 2, Mitchell
5, Burtwell 4, Lynn 17, Malone.
Total 40.

/CANADA'S strength lies in basic things;
^ depends on primary industries. Of
these, agriculture is vital. .The British
Columbia farmer produced goods valued at
$100,000,000 in 1944, much of it swelling
the food-stocks of the United Nations. In
his task, he has been helped by Electricity.
British Columbia has a higher percentage
of rural electrification than any other
Canadian province except Ontario, which
has government subsidies to help pay for
line extensions.
