Early 'Tuesday morning, on the
first actual day of spring, Dr. J.
T. Sheepstork battled his way
through the driving wind and rain
towards the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. U. B. Sheep.
Meanwhile in the little grey

Sheep, whose name is Mary, Papa
Sheep and Uncle Sheep excitedly
awaited the blessed event.
When Johnny Owen, the Stadium caretaker (shown In the picture), arrived in the morning, he
found Mrs. Sheep bleating softly
to two young ones in a baritone
voice and the two young ones
bleating back loudly In tenor
voices.
NOTE OF PATHOS
But down In a shallow dip in
the ground In the far corner of
the pen, he found a frail, crumpled

its small pink tongue hanging out.
It was the third member of the

Graduate Student Makes
Good With Paratroopers
•      FROM VARSITY to the
the success story of Ken
Company F, COTC.
Ken ia casual about his new job.
He has made seven jumps, five of
them at night, ond haa learned to
enjoy Uir sensation of falling
through space.
BUTTERFLIES
He admits that anticipation of
the jump Is its worst feature.
"You're apt to get butterflies ln
the stomach while you wait for
your turn,' 'he said. "Just like
before an exam!"
Ken joined the army last Sep-
Paratroops in one year—that's
Ainsbury, former member of
tembcr, and took two months basic training. After passing his
medical, he w> nt to Shtlo, Manitoba to learn the paratrooplng
technique.
One phase of his training which
did not appeal to him, was the
shock harness drop. This entailed
being hauled up In the air twenty
feet, and then being dropped—
head first.
or female . . . and I care less," he
said laughing.
By Wednesday Pat and Mike
had developed an unshcepish in-
quisitiveness and were pushing
their little black faces into all the
nooks and crannies in the pen.
But whenever they approached
Uncle Sheep, he brutally shoved
them out of the way. Obviously
some sheep don't like other sheep's
l'ttle children.

Face Of
IFC Red
• MEMBERS    OF   THE    Inter-
Fraternity Council were just a
bit emb;irrass£.d last Monday,
\«hen they carefully reviewed
their constitution, to find that a
rule they have been following religiously for the last few years
v as not even in the bible of all
fraternity men.
Fraternities have refrained from
rushing Freshmen for the last
three years, with the understanding that it was prohibited in their
constitution.
Now they find the regulation Is
non-existent, as far as the constitution is concerned.
Newly - elected president Don
Newson, however. Is putting the
constitution throuah Its paces this
week, and the IFC will vote on
several changes proposed by New-
son next Monday.

• From The Editor's Pen
« « »
Education vs. Diplomas
Printed below is an editorial which appeared in the March 22 issue of the Vancouver News Herald. We offer it to the
students of UBC as a sample of the opinion
held by some people of the value of a university education. What do you think about
it?
One Professor Ross of Hartford, Connecticut, has proposed that every student
be given a diploma as soon as he or she
enters university so that those that come
only for a diploma may leave without wasting any more time, and the rest can get on
with their education.
There is a logical foundation for Professor Ross' witticism.
Aside from technical courses in which
a degree is a certificate of competence in the
performance of certain definite tasks, the
modern university diploma is an unreliable
indication of its possessor's educational accomplishment. It is merely a statement that
he has sat through so many lectures and
read certain specified books and crammed
for so many tests.
In most cases, it is no indication whatever of the student's mental abilities or intellectual training.
As a matter of fact, once a young man
or woman has progressed past elementary
instruction in a few basic subjects (a point
reached somewhere in their high school
training) it is impossible to rate the further
progress of his or her education in statistical
form. It is equally impossible to impose
education upon such students by subjecting
them to so many hours and weeks of intellectual forced-feeding.
Higher education must be sought and
absorbed by the student. It cannot be pumped into him. This is the fact which makes
modern mass education in the higher grades
an almost insoluble problem.
It is the reason why, also, higher education should be made available to all, but
only on condition that they show, first, ability to make use of it and, secondly, the
desire to have it. That is what Professor
Ross was hinting at.
Thirty
Those of you who have the temerity to
attempt to read the editorial page of the
Ubyssey have now the privilege of discovering that this is the last ordinary issue for
the year.
Forty issues of the Ubyssey, hatched
in the imaginative and unpredictable minds
of the editors, have come into being during
the last seven months. Forty issues that
have caused a great deal of worry, and not
a little embarassment at various times.
In retrospect, those seven months seem
to have passed all too quickly, although
there were times when we fervently prayed
that through some act of Ood or other influential persons, the whole university
(might disappear.
We cannot say that the year has been
an easy one.  Actually it seems that there
has been more exoitement this year than
for a couple of years past. Some of that
excitement has been brought upon the Publications Board by the members themselves,
but not all, and that of our own conniving,
we do not regret.
However, there have been some painful
errors and omissions, both for ourselves and
for persons and organizations who have been
connected with the paper in some way, and
to those people we extend our condolences,
and trust that next year such mistakes will
not take place. But we offer no guarantee.
We hope that we have satisfied at least
a few of the students, and we hope that the
rest realize that it is impossible to present
a paper that will agree with every person's
wishes. We've done our best.
So this is '30' for '43-'44, and we don't
want to use it.

•   THE SCIENTIFIC world was shocked
today to learn of the sudden death of
Dr. Fitzfauntelroy J. Bunion, BO., PDQ.,
LS MFT, the world-famed Physicist, Mathematician, and Counterfeiter.
Dr. Bunion passed away quietly at his
home, at approximately 3:48 this morning,
after an illness of only twelve hours.
Characteristically, he met his death in
the service of humanity. He contracted his
fatal sickness while at the General Hospital
testing the prototype of his new radio-active
hot water bottle.
His last thoughts were of his wife, the
former Clarabelle Carbunkle, whom he
deserted forty years ago, when her father
lost his shotgun. His dying words were,
"Thank God I have done my income tax
returns."
Dr. Bunion was born in a little log
cabin near the corner of Union and Gore in
the year 1876. He was educated in city
schools, graduating from reform school at
the age of twenty-three.
NOT SO DUMB
He then went to Helwith U. in Illinois,
where he studied for thirteen years. Even
at this early age he showed signs of
exceptional intelligence. When he took his
initiation for the tenth time he stated to a
reporter who interviewed him, "What's de
odds, me Ma's paying me fees."
Finally, in 1926, he received his degree
of Bachelor of Obnoxiety, after presenting
a thesis dealing with the influence of the
typewriter on the Ufe of the Paramecium.
This work gained him considerable
notoriety, and resulted in his being offered
positions with several well-known
institutions.
He declined, however, on the grounds
that he needed all his time to carry out his
work,   and   when   demands   became   too
insistent, he slipped across the border into
Mexico.
VIDELY WARIED
While in Mexico he made many
important contributions to widely varied
branches of Science. Perhaps his most
important discovery at this time was the
automatic phonograph, which did not need
to be rewound more than once a week. It
was this invention which made possible the
development of the modern Chemistry
lecturer.
He also perfected the process of crossing
rice with tobacco to grow tailor-made
cigarettes.
Finally,   in   1934,   he   designed   the
pointed-toe style of shoe, which made the
name of Bunion famous the world over.
PRESSURE OF WHAT?
Dr. Bunion was now becoming well
known in Mexico. He crossed back to the
United States just in time, but was forced
to continue on to Canada due to the pressure
of circumstances.
Once safely out of the States he settled
down to a quiet life, and was not heard from
again until after the beginning of the war,
when he once more made the headlines by
designing a new improvement for army web
equipment.
This made him so popular with
Canadian soldiers that he moved to the
North-West Territories, where he continued
with his work.
Lady Luck had deserted him, however,
and after two years of unsuccessful attempts
.to grow a horse complete with saddle, he
gave up and returned to the city, where his
career ended by his untimely death.
Dr. Bunion has now gone from us but
his great accomplishments have provided a
fitting memorial which will keep his memory
forever before us.

Dear Madam.

I, like many other students,
spend practically all of my studying time in the Library. It is
worse than disgusting when, because it is during the busy hours,
one HAS to sit right across from
or right beside a happy group of
people (old friends of each other),
who are holding a social gathering
—with everything but the cokes
or beer—who evidently have net
seen each other for at least two
hours.
I realize how tempting it Is
to stop and chew the rag with

is the use of that nice big building,
those nice high ceilings, that lovely rubber mat, those chairs with
rubber-tipped legs, if people with
nothing better to do than sit in
front of open books—twiddling a
pencil, or knitting—insist on making so much "chin-moosic." It is
deafening, I say; this isn't the Caf.

Conference Delegates Present Final Report
Part II
MEN OF GOODWILL
0 RAISED on a farm between
Calgary and Edmonton, Dean
of Agriculture R. D, Sinclair, a
b i g, plain-spoken agriculturist,
looked out upon a post-war world
where problems would be solved
by the deliberation of men of
goodwill. The United Nations Conference on Food and Agriculture
brought representatives of forty -
four countries together at Hot
Springs, Virginia, in a spirit of
sincere concern over the mighty
problem of feeding a malnourished
and hungry world.
The dean prefaced his remarks
with an observation on the low
pre-war diets prevailing in almost
every country. Despite the elab*-
orate plans which of necessity
must be laid to feed peoples and
rehabilitate nations, he insisted
that no farmer should be held
under the yoke of bureaucratic
compulsion. The universities must
supply the men who can meet on
Canada's behalf with agricultural
representatives abroad.
"CHRONIC"
Dr. Sinclair told of the chronic
disruptions wrought by this war.
The PER CAPITA consumption of
meats, cereals and dairy products
has increased inordinately. In fact,
it is not merely a case of INCREASED consumption but one of
EXCESS consumption.
Such a situation is in danger of
resurrecting the recurrent problem of un-budgeted, unplanned
production. The Hot Springs conference was called by President
Roosevelt to probe into ways and
means of alleviating the growing
disorganization of world agriculture.
The most equitable system, to
Dean Sinclair's mind, was Great
Britain's bacon quota system instituted in 1932. The problem at
that time was to reserve a section
of the British market for British
hog farmers. As a result, Canada
was given a specific quota to fill.
This proved the first definite objective for Canadian pig farmers,
and was used as a basis for the
Bacon Agreement now in operation.
LARGE SCALE.
The quota system has been put
Into effect on an even larger scale
through the International Wheat
Agreements signed in 1942 by
Canada, the United States and Argentina, as the chief exporters,
and by Great Britain as the chief
importer of wheat.
Some say this Agreement is
planned scarcity on a large scale.
Sinclair was of the opinion it was
a means of averting the disaster
caused by surplus governing price.
Under this arrangement, surpluses
can serve as insurance against
scarcity, and termed the present
wheat surplus a "God-send of the
first order."
MALNUTRITION
The United Nations conference
dealt with the staggering question
of malnutrition. It discovered the
world diet to -be long on carbohydrates and short on proteins,
fats, minerals. People were overstocked on such foods as wheat
and potatoes to the extent of 70
billion pounds, while they had not
enough foods like leafy vegetables.
The responsibility of balancing the
world diet falls directly upon the
skills, knowledge and technical
facilities of the universities.
Since a Canadian is chairman of
the Interim Commission set up by
Roosevelt following the conference,
Canadian universities are sure to

be consulted for scientific advice.
It is entirely possible, also, that
our universities will be training
men and women in the fields of
nutrition and sending them out to
various countries to help correct
faulty food habits.
In conclusion, Dr. Sinclair said
the economics of the world food
situation could not be Ignored. The
financing of world agricultural readjustment will demand numerous
trained economists and statisticians.
DISCUSSION:
Leading off the ensuing discussion, Dean Sinclair reminded the
delegates that there was no idea
of compelling farmers to grow
certain crops. Rather, they would
be acquainted with demand conditions and shown how to produce
the requisite supply.
Mr. McGill of British Columbia,
opened the discussion by expressing doubt if the Chinese, say,
could possibly alter their long-
established food habits without injurious psychological repercussions.
Mr. Eggenberger, of Alberta, disagreed. Switching native populations from their accustomed diets
to better-balanced diets would actually have deleterious physical
effects.
Miss Van Kleeck, of Alberta,
contested this statement, pointing
out that a well-balanced diet could
not possibly cause illness or contribute to anything save physical
health.
Miss Stewart, of British Columbia, attacked the quota system,
saying it limited production, thi!*
depriving some needy country of
the surplus which would other*
wise have been produced. She
held that such a surplus could be
used ln alleviating malnutrition in,
say, China and, since the price of
the surplus would be necessarily
low, would step up consumption ln
the producing country.
Since most of the discussion was
quite apart from university affairs,
it is not necessary to include it in
this report.
Part III
BACK TO A CLASSICAL
TRAINING
• THE Honorable Solon Low,
Alberta's ingratiating minister
of education, made an able defence
of the elementary school system.
His introductory remarks concerned the recommendations of
the Canadian and Newfoundland
Educational Association. He then
went on to describe how, in response to the inexorable pressure
of public opinion, the elementary
schools are gradually veering in
the direction of straight, practical
training. Although he made no
reference in his address to university educa'.ional problems, he did
furnish a certain amount of back-
greund valuable to the discussion
which followed.
DISCUSSION:
Most of the delegates were antagonistic to the abandonment by
the schools of pure classical study.
Mr. McGill, of British Columbia,
held out for a return to compulsory Greek and Latin courses,
stating that they provided the
proper preparation for such university courses as, economics, history, philosophy and science.
"Classical education is mental
discipline," said Mr. Parrott, of
British  Columbia.
A Saskatchewan delegate vigorously dissented, saying that other
courses of a more utilitarian nature supplied the same mental
discipline,
CLASSICAL STUDIES
Despite his factual engineering
training, Mr. Hetherington, of
British Columbia, was in wholehearted agreement with the idea
of restoring classical study to the
schools. Miss Stewart, of British
Columbia, pointed out that if education mirrors the philosophy and
needs of the time, it ls not In the

sciences where we have fallen
down, but in man's relation to and
understanding of himself. Philosophy should therefore be studied.
The delegates believed that,
should the schools continue throwing out former classical studies in
favor of utilitarian courses, stu-
aent guidance instructors should
be employed to advise high school
students on the nature, implications and Importance of university work.
Part IV
THE UNIVERSITY AND THE
COMMUNITY
O GENIAL, CORNELL-trained
Stanley Hillerud, of Alberta's
Extension Department, delivered
the most informal address and
felt thoroughly at home with the
delegates. Since he was more in*
clined to pose searching questions
before the conference than express his own opinion, the discussion covered a variety of
topics.
Seeking for an explanation of
the university's place in the community, Hillerud said: "A man
will move away from you if you
overpower him with your thinking." That is, you can not impose
the university way of thinking or
its leadership upon the community-
Only by meeting people on their
own ground can the university
effect an indisseverable bond between it and the community. Also,
personal contact on the part of
the graduates with the community
is more important than the most
elaborate facilities. Only then
will true leadership assert itself
and be of lasting benefit to tho
public.
TRAIL-BLAZING
The extension departments of
the western universities have already blazed the trail into public
consciousness. It is now the duty
of undergraduates and graduates
to follow up and consolidate the
salient thus established. This can
be accomplished by the students'
tacit' recognition that they are
more at fault than their courses.
On the surface, university courses
may seem inadequate, but they arc
organized with a fine appreciation
of practical needs. Many students,
through haphazard selection of
courses, finally graduate with an
education of little value. A zeal,
an enthusiasm for university training must be generated in students,
and this same zeal and enthusiasm they can carry and disseminate wherever they go.
He turned then to thc matter of
rehabilitation of returned men and
women. He told of a nineteen-
year-old pilot officer who, after
distinguished service overseas was
discharged and came back to his
old Job. His former employer
merely informed him that if his
services were needed, he would
be notified. This looked like a
flagrant breach of thc bargain
existing between employers and
men who Join up. The employer
explained to Hillerud why he could
not possibly re-employ this man.
"WAR-TRAINING USELESS"
"You know," he said, "nothing
in that young fellow's war training can be of any use to us. When
he left here he waa an office boy.
When he came back he was an officer—with a different background,
a different training and a different
concept of life. What are we to
do with such men?"
This young P.O., Mr. Hillerud
said, is the rule and not the exception. Men and women returning
from the services feel they are entitled to advancement in their old
jobs. The universities will be instrumental in providing them with
the training to secure such advantages,
RESOLUTIONS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS
Under the chairmanship of Mr,
G. K. Eggenberger, of Alberta, the
following Resolutions and Recommendations were approved by the
Conference on February 18, 1944:
GOVERNMENT AND
CITIZENSHIP
We feel that Canadians must assume a greater responsibility in
the community, national and international affairs, and recognize the
interdependence of nations.
1. Inasmuch as we consider the
pursuance of a political career
as one of the foremost professions in our country, we recommend the scientific study of
government be encouraged in
our universities.
2. We recommend that a course
in "government" be established
at all universities and be made
available to all students.
3. We recommend that students
be encouraged to discuss political problems freely, and use
their student newspapers, radio
and other facilities to Ihe fullest extent in this regard.
EDUCATION:
We recognize that  the future of
the postwar world must be based
fundamentally upon an adequate
plan for youth and adult education.
Opportunities should be made
available to all people in order
that they may develop their talents
to the benefit of themselves and
their community.
4. We recommend that the university and the student body
should attempt, through its extension services and the techniques at its disposal, to carry
information to all parts of the
provinces, and to help the
people   live   fuller   lives   in
greater social harmony.
5. We recommend the establishment of a Federal Equalization
Fund to be administered by the
provinces to extend educational
facilities.
6. We recommend that since Canadian research services are far
below those of other leading
countries, the Dominion government should immediately expand these services.
7. We recommend that this conference go on record as supporting the present trends in
education for the betterment
of teacher qualification and
teachers' salaries in the province of Canada.
8. We recommend that the crowding of the labor market be relieved by encouraging youth to
continue their education up to
the ages of 17 or 18 years at
least.
9. We recommend that the government extend the system of
scholarships to cover not only
tuition, but also general living
expenses, to students who can
prove their claim to such aid.
10. We recommend that trained
specialists in student guidance
be placed in full-time positions
in the high schools.
11. We recommend that large-
scale student exchange programs between French-speaking and English-speaking universities be put into effect.
This exchange should be extended into the international
field.
12. We recommend that extensive
physical education be compul-
■       sory in all educational institutions,
13. We recommend that a course
in Humanistic Social Studies
be made available to technical
students.
RURAL LIFE
We realize the need for equalization of agriculture with other industries, and that economic stability should be assured to the farmer.
14. We recommend that university
facilities be used to the greatest
extent in the betterment of
rural living conditions.
15. We recommend that a study be
made at the universities for
the utilization of agricultural
products and by-products in
order to promote increased agricultural production.
16. We recommend that, in view
of the need for farmer unity,
university agricultural colleges
should include in their curricula, courses in rural leadership and courses for the training of agricultural advisors.
MEDICAL SERVICES
17. We recommend that students
should acquaint themselves
with the necessity of planning
for better national health, and
should study various aspects of
the schemes proposed at the
present time.
18. We recommend that preventive
medicine should be taught
throughout the educational institutions of Canada.
GENERAL
19. We recommend that the universities represented at this
conference establish organizations of a properly constituted
character, dedicated to specific
problems of returned men, such
organizations to be composed
of returned men, and that these
organizations strive to protect
the interests and welfare of
returned men.
CONCERNING THE
CONTINUATION OF THESE
CONFERENCES
Moved by the B.C. Delegation,
seconded by the Manitoba Delegation that:
(a) an organization to be known
as the Dominion Conference of
University Students be established
among the universities of western
Canada;
(b) this conference be considered the first general meeting of such
an organization;
(c) a general invitation to the
universities of Ontario, Quebec
and the Maritime Provinces to join
this organization;
(d) immediate steps to be taken
Io draw up a Constitution, and
make plans for another meeting of
delegates in 1945;
(c^ the delegates elect a secretary for the conference at thc
meeting in 1945.

that:
(a)   a student committee at the
University of Saskatchewan be responsible for arrangements for the
conference to be held at their university in 1945;
(b) a student committee at the
University of Manitoba be responsible for the preparation of a draft
agenda  to serve  as a basis of
discussion in 1945;
(c) a student committee at the
University of Alberta be responsible for investigating the question
of publishing the findings of this
and future conferences.
(d) a student committee at the
University of British Columbia be
responsible for the preparation of

Dominion Conference of University Students.
RECOMMENDATIONS
The following Recommendations
under this heading were approved:
20. We recommend that the delegates to the conference be selected by an interviewing board
composed of three professors
and three students, and that the
personnel of the board be appointed by the executive council of the student body.
21. We recommend that the procedure of this present conference of having seminars be

Thunderbirds Drop Hoop Series To Combines
Varsity Completes
Successful Season
By LUKE MOYLS
•   THE 1943-44 BASKETBALL SEASON ended somewhat
ingloriously last Monday night when the Vancouver
Combines took UBC Thunderbirds 45-38 for the third win
of the series to give them the Lower Mainland Title. In the
game last Saturday night at VAC gym, Varsity lost by a
single basket in overtime, 57-55.	
In Monday night's contest, the       —————————————
Clark and Rush Star
CHUCK CLARIDGE, SPORTS EDITOR
Thunderbirds started out determined to equalize the series. In
the first quarter Sandy Robertson
aided the student cause with five
baskets. Ole Bakken added a free
shot to give Varsity a three-point
lead, 11-f.
COMBINES TAKE LEAD
Early in the second stanza, Robertson left the floor with an internal injury which kept him out
at action for most of the period.
When he returned to the game, he
received another blow which stiffened a leg muscle, causing his
withdrawal from the game again.
The Vancouver outfit took advantage et the absence ot the UBC
star to poll ahead of the Students,
outscoriag them 12*7 ln the second
canto to put them up 20*18.
After the breather, the Blue and
Gold outfit couldn't get started.
Jack Graham got hot for the Combines to sink three baskets in the
third quarter as Vancouver surged
ahead another three points.
COMBINES KEEP LEAD
Harry Franklin and Ole Bakken
pepped things up in the final 10
minutes, each of them collecting
four points, but the Students
couldn't catch the Combines. Earl
McDonagh and George McConnell
led the Vancouver team to victory
with six and five points respectively Ln the laat quarter, as Combines
went up another basket to end the
game with the score 45-38.
The Vancouver Combines will
play Pat Bay Gremlins in the provincial playoffs starting Saturday
night at the VAC gym. The Gremlins won the Vancouver Island title
on Wednesday night by defeating
Victoria Army 74-46 in the fifth
gam* of tho series.

boost and George Rush took the
height with great ease. Rush then
went on to gain the five and one
half foot mark before fading out.
The athletes were greatly hampered by the bitter wind that prevailed. This wind caused most of
them to be attired more heavily
than they should have been.
Consequently the times and limits
were somewhat hampered.
Engineers Set Pace In
Intramural Track Meet
•   ENGINEERS TOOK a firm grip on the lead for the Track
Meet honours yesterday when they won the 100-yard
dash and the shot-put in the first half of the Intramural Track
Meet.
The second part of the meet will
probably be run off today if conditions permit. Weather conditions have postponed the original
dates for the meet from the beginning of this week until tho
present time.
CLARK WINS 100 YARD
Keith Ketchen and Frank Matthews ran a fast race in the first
heat of the 100 yard dash finishing
with a time of 10:03. BUI Clark
coasted along with ease to win the
second heat handily.
In the final heat, which consisted
of the first four of the first two
heats, BUI Clark led Keith Ketchen
over the wire by about half a
stride. The tune was 10:01. Frank
Matthews ran third.
In the 880 yard event Ken McPherson made the rounds in 2:08
minutes. He was followed by Cam
Coady and McKenzie, all of Cross
Country fame.
Bob McLellan, playing for Engineers, won the shotput on a toss
of 36 feet 4 inches. His efforts
were followed by those of Willis
and Mitten.
GOOD JUMPING
The best show of the day. was
the competitive high jump. The
competition started out with a
large number of entrants but
whittled down tp a heated argue-
ment between Doug Reld and
George  Rush.
Both Jumpers showed grim determination and excellent form as

Imperial Cup Chances Lost
Varsity Drops Semi-Final
Soccer Game To Army
By JIM SCHATZ
•   ARMY SQUASHED VARSITY'S CHANCES to win the
Imperial Cup last Saturday when they downed the students 3 to 0 at Callister Park in the semi-final of the soccer
play-down.
Sparked by Fred Whittaker, who scored all three of
Army's goals, the Army made an easy victory with a totally
disorganized line-up. They were playing without four of
their regular players and consequently had to reshuffle the
entire team.
Varsity made the play close in
the first half of the game but allowed Fred Whittaker to nudge
the ball through the post from a
close corner kick which was so
close the fullbacks thought it had
gone off.
WHITTAKER SCORES THREE
The reorganized Army team
seemed to find its power In the
second half and played a very
steady game. They tightened up
on their defence so that the students had difficulty in getting even
a few shots at the goalie.
While protecting the one goal
lead the soldiers took opportunities
to rush the Held occasionally to
the detriment of the Blue and
Gold. Two of these rushes netted
another two scores, both by Fred
Whittaker. This raised his total
for the afternoon to three.
This was the last game of the
season for the campus round-ball-
ers. All in all they had a very
successful year. They were right
on the heels of the Army squad
in the pre-Christmas season and
worked their way to third spot in
the standings of the league in the
season after Christmas.
TEAMS WORKED HARD
The UBC team also faired quite
well in their endeavours on the
field. They provided some of the
tougher competition in their respective leagues during the fall
but ran into bad fortune when they
needed a little luck.
Since Christmas they have had
more difficulty than before and
have rested in low standing in the
league. However they have produced some very fine players who
will be the basis of a powerful
senior team for next year. That
was the original intention of the
Soccer Club when the second team
was formed last year.
A lot of the credit for the team's
success is to be handed out to
Maury Glover, who has acted as
senior manager of the Soccer Club,
BUI King, manager of the Varsity
team, Alec Cowie, manager of the
UBC team, and Stu Roach, their
coach. The fight that the two
teams have shown this year Is due
to these fellows In no small
amount.
High School
Rugby Final
Tomorrow
• UBC STUDENTS will get a
chance to see how the younger
generation is progressing in the
field of athletics when Kltsllane
and King Edward High Schools
battle for the Vancouver Inter-

Championship in the Varsity Stadium tomorrow afternoon at 3:31
p.m.
It was originally scheduled to

events tomorrow, but the University Air Training Corps is being
inspected in the stadium at 2:31
p.m. However, the Senior Final
promises to be well worth watching.
In the last meeting between
these two rival teams, Kltsllane
had the edge, but King Ed evened
the score In the dying minutes ef
the game, and the tilt ended in a
tie. The two squads finished the
league together ln first place.

4 o'clock, the Junior Canadian
FootbaU Final will also .be
staged in UBC Stadium. I a
