CLOSE TO 20,000 crowded onto the campus for Visitors' Day on Saturday, to contribute an estimate $5,000 for
the War Memorial Gymnasium. Top attraction was the
chemical engineers' nylon factory (upper left) which produced real nylon, but, to the disappointment of the ladies,
not stockings. The carnival in the armory, with booths operated by each fraternity and sorority earned $1,107, with
Alpha Phi booth (centre) leading the way with $117.
Faculty displays, such as the Aggie embryo exhibit
(right) kept the public flowing past the collection bottles
which contained $205 at the end of the day. Biggest money
maker was the McKechnie Cup game in the stadium where
Varsity Thunderbirds defeated Vancouver Lions, following
the kick off by beauteous Ruby Dunlop (lower left). Jokers
circulating through the crowd, sold hot dogs and tickets
for their horse race, which turned out to be four school
children mounted on Shetland ponies.  Bets were "on the
nose", so the Jokers backed the ponies across the finish line,
seized the money for the gymnasium. Only shadow of
authenticity about the race was the announcing by Jack
Short. Also on the program was toreador Dick Ellis, who
brought a flavor of old Spain to the game when he went into
action with a ferocious bull straight from the dark and
odoriferous recesses of the Aggie barn.
Taking a lesson frpm the chorus, Ferdinand kicked
prettily for the public. Visitors' Day provided concrete proof
of the need for the new Gym when nearly 1000 would-be
spectators were unable to crowd their way into the old
building to see Thunderbirds fell the Puget Sound Loggers.
Admission paid by the 1500 who did manage to get it, along
with that collected at the rugby game, will also go to tho
fund after expenses have been subtracted. This, with the
revenue collected from two Brock Hall dances, is expected
to total nearly $3000, to bring the total figure up to $5000.
HAVE YOU had a ghost in the
Engineering building or a cow in
the campus bell tower? Do you
welcome your Frosh in African
costume or cherish fond memories
of a stream called the Taddles? If
you haven't or don't some other
Canadian Campus does or has.
Young as the Canadian campus is
compared to its European forebears, it has traditions and legends
of its own.
Manitoba is justly proud of their
myth of the Engineer's ghost. The
ghost is suposed to be the spirit
of an Engineering professor's wife
who died after a dance in the
Common Room of the Engineering
Building at Fort Garry. In the best
Anne Boleyn tradition, she is reported to wander up and down the
"drafty corridors" wailing and
wringing her hands. But, alas, she
has never been seen and seems to
confine her nocturnal wanderings
to the nights when the Engineering
Building is closed. Though no one
has heard her wail, Manitoba students declare that she has the
voice of a young woman.
There really was a cow in the
campus bell tower at the University
of Toronto many years ago in the
days when Chancellor Cody was an
undergraduate. The cow belonged
to the University College steward
who pastured it on the back :arri-
pus and one night he was wakened
by the tolling of the bell, only to
discover that the undergraduates
had somehow enticed the cow into
the bell tower and tied the rope
to its horns. The bell was silenced
easily enough, but the real problem was getting the cow out of the
bell tower. The cow stubbornly
refused to go down the stairs.
Finally planks were laid from landing to landing and the cow was
shoved down, presumably with
more dfficulty than she had been
pulled up.
The best known tradition at the
University of Saskatchewan dates
from the days when the campus
was suffering an acute woman-
power shortage. In those early days
there were only fifteen girls attending the university and these
banded together in a club known
as the Pente Kal Deka, meaning
five and ten. Now each Fall the
freshies automatically become
members and are adopted by their
senior co-ed sisters in the club.
Then they are Introduced to the
campus eds at the annual Stag-
Stagette Dance.
The University of Western Ontario has its share of legends and
traditions, too. In the time-honored
manner of hazing the bewildered
Frosh, upper classmen sell them
season tickets for reserved seats in
the library ... the same bewildered Frosh soon learn to call the
offico of the Gazette "Little Hell".
Western also boats a ghost which
inhabits the attic of Huron College,
Theological Affiliate and official
men's residence. And it's the Huron
College Frosh at Western who traditionally dress in African skirt
costumes once sent to the college
by a missionary, and battle with
African clubs.

Students Waive
Caution Money
DURING NEXT week, non-
veteran students on the campus
will be individually approached
by the USC to sign away their
caution money. The deposits will
be given to the Memorial Gym
Student Vets' fees are paid by
the government and do not include caution money.
Each waiving is a legal transaction, and requires the signature
of the donor and a witness. Because tihey are a voluntary deposit,
•ethically they belong to the student, and must be waived In black
and white.
Reckoning on an average balance of $2.75 per capita and 100%
support of the drive, donations of
caution money may amount to as
much as ten thousand dollars.
In former years, students gave
up caution money to the Red
Cross. Last year it amounted to
over three  thousand  dollars.

Funds Contributed
For Scholarships
OVER 5000 dollars contributed
to the university for scholarships
and research work have been accepted by the Board of Governors.
The British Columbia Electric
Company Limited have contributed the sum of $1,000 to be assigned
to Scholarship Awards for the
1946-47 Session. This is a renewal
of an annual contribution for
UBC Scholarships.
Western Chemical Industries
Limited have donated $265 which
has been placed in a fund for the
extension of the nutrition building
at the university.
Dean G. G. Cessens of the Faculty of Forestry at the University
of Toronto is the donor of a
cheque for $100 to thc University
Research Forest Fund. This fund
of the new research forest area
will be used for the development
near Haney.
Safeway Stores Limited have
contributed a sum of $4,000 over
the past two years for research
work conducted by the Faculty of
Agriculture on poultry farm
Canadian Club
Gives Lectureship
THE BOARD of Governors have
acepted the offer of the Canadian
Club of Vancouver to establish a
Lectureship at the university,
Acting President, Dean J. N.
Finlayson, announced Saturday.
A committee has been appointed
to arrange the details of the Lectureship which has been provided
for by an annual contribution of
$500 from the Canadian Club.
The Lectureship will consist of
two or three lectures annually, to
be given preferably by a graduate
or a former Faculty member of the
university who has made a special
contribution in an field of scholastic, scientific or public endeavor.
Subject of the lecture will be
of Canadian interest within the
special field of the lecturer, and it
is expected that these addresses
will later be published.
British Criminals
METHODS of combatting the
increasing prevalence of juvenile
delinquency In wartorn England
were outlined to the SPC Monday
by Mrs. G. Elliot, British Ministry
of Information.
"The blackout, and the break-up
of families tended to increase crime
and deliquency," said Mrs. Elliot.
"This danger was headed off by
the organization of youth clubs
which engaged youths in pleasant
and useful activities."
Other methods employed by the
British included probation, approved schools, and Borstal institutions, the British holding that
no youth under 21 should go to
to prison.
"Slum clearance made a big
contribution in decreasing delinquency,"  Mrs.  Elliot stated.
"Delinquents ore predominantly
of low mental capacity. Not many
are the wicked and clever type."

New Parliament
Leaders To Air
Party Platforms
POLITICAL PARTIES on the campus will be campaigning in earnest Wednesday at 12:30 in Arts 100, when
the Parliamentary Forum hold their spring Mock Parliament elections. Students will hear platforms from the
Progressive-Conservatives, Liberals, CCF, Labor Progressives and the ever-present Retrogressive-Progressives.
Bob Harwood, president of the
Parliamentary Forum,' Is in charge
of the forthcoming election. Hie
first parliament will take place
Wednesday, March 12.
In the elections held last fall,
when the Progressive Conservatives maintained a plurality, their
leader, Grant Livingstone decided
to form a government with 18
seats in a 47 seat house. CCF
under Bob Harwood gained 13
seats to form the opposition. Retrogressive Progressives held eight
yoats and Liberal four. There
were two independents in thc
The Liberal Party, under Harry
Castillou, stands for "radical yet
sane legislation:"
"A system of taxation for roads
as in the State of Washington
where token money takes care of
all road maintenance and construction, thu assumption being that a
little at a time is better than a
huge sum in some dim and not
too distant future."
"A national sport program as in
pre-war Czechoslovakia to emphasize to Canadians the importance
of healthy living which will coincide with the national drive
against delinquency and help prevent adult crime."
"Government control of all
transportation on rail and by air.
This is aimed primarily to take
over the CPR and will mean a
great economic gain to Canada."
CCF leader Cliff Greer presents
a program featuring "long term
planning under which will be established: a ministry of economic
research, planning and investment
commission, social ownership and
operation of banks and all other
credit institutions, gradual acquis!-
tion, with full compensation to
present owners of all major Industry and natural resources, encouragement of co-operatives,
where they are suited to the particular economy or social unit."
"Immediate measures to be taken will ba: building of 700,000
new homes, mainly by the provision of low interest loans to
piovincial and municipal governments, health and dental insurance, increase of old age pensions
tt> $50 monthly and lowering of
age limit to 60."
"Abolition of Senate and transference of all Senators to interest
fi-ee old age pensions. Full employment by a federal works program, Collective bargaining rights
to labor and inauguration of 40
hour week with a federal minimum wage of sixty cents an hour.
Naturalization law creating one
status of citizenship and encouraging other nationals resident in
Canada    to    become    Canadians.
Assistance   to  provincial  governments in the provision of Insurance to farmers and fishermen."
This year the Progressive Conservatives put up the only woman
candidate, Joan Fraser. The party
presents a program of broad principles and policies: "individual
freedom, political democracy, opportunity under free enterprise,
responsible Canadian nationalism,
end the British partnership."
A definition of Progressive Conservatism given by the party is,
"relative to the Liberals we are
distinctly progressive, but relative
to the Socialists justifiably conservative."
"Party policies are to maintain
and extend Empire preference, to
encourage reciprocal trade with all
nations, to promote Canadian participation within UNO, to stimulate
Canadian Air Transport, to promote
national development of Canada's
rich resources, to promote selective
immigration from Europe, to further dominion-provincial co-operation based on the spirit of confederation and to extend this cooperation into a unified revenue
system, to negotiate a loan to
Britain, to establish a full and comprehensive social security plan
assuming Federal responsibility for
unemployment, accident, sickness
and old age insurance, to rejuvenate
veterans rehabilitation by direct
sale to veterans of our assets,
establishment of a loan agency
under DVA, and Increase of educational rehabilitation grants, establish a more suitable National
minimum wage and better collective bargaining arrangements to
establish a ministry of housing."
LPP, lead by Gordon Williams,
present a policy as follows:
"Canadian foreign policy based
en strengthening Big Three Unity.
Events since the last parliament
have verified the contention of the
party that dangerous forces, backed
by monopoly capital are manouev-
ering for a third world war. The
glowing promises of the Atlantic
Charter have been forgotten as
the colonial peoples independence
movements are ruthlessly sur-
pressed and peoples movements in
Europe are challenged by reaction.
Increased standards of living for
Canadian people. Reallocation of
powers between federal and provincial governments to meet the
post war needs for social security.
A billion dollar program for provision of low rental housing to
meet the critical shortage and to
create useful work.
Unity among all those who support a policy of peace and social
The Retrogressive Progressives,
under Dave Williams, had not submitted a platform at time of going
to press. THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, March 5, 1946, Page 2
When, at the conclusion of a combined
university effort, there are more verbal
bouquets to be handed around than we have
space for, it's a good sign.
Visitors' Day was a success, all the way
through. A little bit of the constructive
work was done by the weatherman, but the
rest was done by students and the B. C.
Rugby Union.
The organization during the rugby game
was smooth. As one student put it, "It was
the best show I've ever seen in the stadium".
The B. C. Rugby Union is doing a wonderful promotional job for the university,
as are the students and faculty members
who handled the displays in the buildings,
the Jokers' Club, over-rated but genuinely

worth the praise, Mamooks, the poster posters, the new Varsity Dance orchestra, which
played a full stand in the Armory just a
few short days after its organization, Student Council, the undergraduate side-show
barkers who erected, operated and took
down the midnight Saturday carnival booths
and the University Physical Education department.
In general, every student should give himself or herself a pat on the back. May there
be many more Visitors' Days. A similar
program next Homecoming Day, to publicize
the ever-present gymnasium drive, is a plan
worth thinking about. The Alma Mater Society has proved it can put on a good show.
Indications that some • groups on the
campus will demand revisions in the AMS
code this Spring are now obvious. A
lengthy letter to the editor written by two
law students was printed as a news story
in the Saturday Ubyssey.
The letter, which referred to the* famed
Zlotnik case of last fall as an example of
the enforcement of AMS regulations resulting from the activities of a few students
considered by the Discipline Committee to
be in violation of section 3 of Article 12.
The article read as follows, "Every student
or group of students whether individual or
as members of an organization under the
Alma Mater Society, or any other group of
students using the University name and
crest, or representing the university in any
way, shall be responsible to the Students'
Council for the conduct of the individual,
organization or group in any way in which
it may be held directly or indirectly to affect
the university."
This article is referred to as "the most
ambiguous, poorly worded and downright
iniquitous section of the entire code, which
has not even the merit of asserting what
shall be lawful or what shall be forbidden."
"It simply states that all members of the
AMS shall be responsible to the Student
Council for conduct which in any way may
be held directly or indirectly to affect the
university," claim the students.
The letter continues, "What could be more
coldly calculated than this article to stand
in direct and menacing opposition to the
ideals and tenets for which all of us, at
home, and abroad, have been fighting so
It is true that the article is loosely worded
and it is desirable both for the Alma Mater
Society and the Discipline Committee that
the wording of this article, the only section
of the Alma Mater Society rule Hook which
does not apply to specific infractions, and
attempts to place a general restriction on
the activities of any members of the Alma
Mater Society, which may be considered
prejudicial to the best interests of the Alma
Mater Society.
The insertion of the one adverb "adversely" should definitely be inserted at the end
of Article 12, section 3.
The proposal, presented by the letter, advocates that a judicial committee of 12,
picked by lot, should sit on cases involving
students charged under the AMS code. The
authors believe that the Discipline Committee should charge offenders and the
judicial committee should make disciplinary
In the past, the Discipline Committee supplemented by Students' Council, has been
the only body found necessary to "police"
the Alma Mater Society. Routine jobs such
as checking lunch-eaters in Brock Hall,
liquor consumers at dances, and card-players
in the cafeteria, have been handled by one
body, composed this year of members of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee.    ,
Whether an additional group of representative students is necessary to levy judgement
on more serious "offenses" is a secondary
problem. It would appear that the existing
disciplinary body is handling its job fairly,
in a fashion free from prejudice, and a
further addition would bring needless
duplication and more red tape.
ThiS   Is   TOO   Much By John Green
A favorite topic for discussion in the press
during the past year or so has been the
question of sex education in the high schools.
Arguments and suggestions have been
flying merrily back and forth, but aside
from a general agreement that some such
education is necessary, and a general disagreement as to what should be done about
it, nothing much has been accomplished.
One rather important circumstance relevant to the case has so far been consistently
overlooked, and that is that no such education is given at university either.
Past Hope
Perhaps the idea is that since only a
minority of young people get to university
it isn't worth bothering with them, or perhaps that by the time they reach university
students have either picked up enough knowledge in their own way or else have reached
the stage where education can't help them.
That isn't very important, anyway. What
is important is that no course in sex and
marriage is open to all students at this
Something of the sort is given in Home
Economics, but Home Economics students
aren't the only ones who get married.
Bull Sessions
Need for the course is evident, if only
because of the rapidly rising divorce rate.
Demand is not so evident as yet, but if interest in the subject is any criterion the
demand is certainly there. It is the subject
concerning which the thirst for knowledge
is most universal, and the subject concerning which accurate knowledge is least easily
Given time, any bull session will eventually shift to the subject of sex and stay
there, simply because the influences and the
problems of sex affect every one of us.
The aura of secrecy which surrounds the
subject may heighten the interest, but it
does nothing to assist in the acquisition of
necessary knowledge, and the bull session
teaches nothing but how little other people
Marital Success
There can be no question now that such
a course is perfectly practicable.   Success
ful courses are being given at many universities, showing none of the dire results of
immorality and licentious interest which are
sometimes predicted, but resulting in a
wholesome record of marital success among
former students.
The Readers' Digest of February, 1946,
contains an article, condensed from Colliers,
describing such a course given at the University of California, where not only broad
general principles but also personal problems are discussed freely before a co-educational class.
10,000 Students
This course has been given for over six
years now, and has been attended by 10,000
students. It boasts the record that there
has been no case where a couple's marriage
failed after both had taken the course.
Presentation of the course would certainly
present some difficulties. Qualified instructors might not be easily come by, and the
usual difficulties resulting from the present
shortages of space and equipment would
probably be encountered.
Nevertheless, the university is not without some foundation for such a course. Besides the work in the Home Economics department already mentioned there is a discussion group held by the Extension department on Marriage and Family Life, and
established departments such as those of
Sociology and Psychology as well as the
new faculty of Medicine, could probably
contribute something.
Student Demand
Overcrowding and its attendant difficulties of staff shortages and organizational
problems might be obstacles, but they have
not prevented the establishment of a new
faculty and several new departments, and,
indeed, the administration in general, and
Dr. MacKenzie in particular, have shown
a consistent willingness to provide any
course for which there is a student demand.
That a practical sex and marriage course
is both feasible and desirable seems scarcely
to be in doubt. It might almost be something that could be had for the asking if
interest in the subject is translated into a
demand for the course.

Employment Bureau Will
Become Permanent Unit
ALTHOUGH still without a full-time director, the UBC
Employment Bureau has opened its new office on the second
floor of the Brock for the registration of students for summer employment.
The Joint Student Employment
Committee, under the direction ot
Co-ordinator Ray Dewar has organized t> staff of student volunteers to handle registration and
interviews. This temporary staff
was set up in order that no time
would be lost in securing summer
employment for th« large number of students who are depending
on additional funds to continue
their education.
A recent survey showed that
practically all veterans are hoping
to secure employment during the
summer as DVA grants do not
continue through the months when
they are not attending the university.
With the appointment of a full-
time director and a permanent
staff it is hoped that summer,
Chrastmas, part-time employment
and employment on graduation
will be handled by this bureau.
"This is not just another student employment bureau," Ray
Dewar emphasized, "It Ls the beginning of a permanent bureau as
an administrative unit to handle
all types of employment."
"Complete records of employment experience of all students as
well as their academic progress at
the university will be kept as a
reference for the  convenience of
mployers," he continued.
Assisting Dewar is a large staff
of volunteers. Helen Duncan heads
the women's department with
twelve assistants. Gordon Thomas
r.nd twelve assistants interview
male applicants. Jim Macintosh
is in charge of the Statistics and
filing department.
The employment bureau wishes
to remind all students that it will
be a big job registering the 4000
. students expected, and applicants
are therefore requested to register
as early as possible.
Annual Pub-Council, basketball
game, scheduled for this Wednesday noon, has been postponed for
one week.
"We regret," said Editor-in-Chief
Mardee Dundas, in announcing the
change, "that once again the spineless Council has withdrawn In the
face of our formidable forces. But,
it's typical."
Mardi Gras Kicks
Miss Ruth Ryan in the Ubyssey,
March 2, 1946, though disagreeing
with me, graciously "tried to
justify" my "opinion" regarding
the immorality of the UBC Mardi
Gras cagaret.
May I point out the fallacy of
her argument when she writes:
"I think we must bear in mind
thc fact that opinions in matters
such as this have changed with
time and are still changing."?
Christian morality is summarized in the Decalogue which includes the obligations arising from
the nature of man—the natural
law. This natural law Is immutable, universal and absolute and
cannot be changed ~/en by God
Himself, unless Tie changes the
very nature of man. It binds all
men without exception and at nil
times. God wrote the Ten Commandments on stone, but He wrote
them first in the human heart.
Morality, then is obedience to
law—an old-fashioned definition,
perhaps, but the only one worthwhile. Law exists because God
There are many fancy ideas
about morality prevalent just now,
such, for instance, as the "new
morality," which simply means
immorality. Miss Ryan's words
provided an example: "The chorus,
which has been criticized by very
few today, would have been universally criticized by our grandparents. The same chorus would
likely be considered staid and old-
fashioned by our grandchildren."
Would Miss Ryan condone in the
latter still more daringly "indecent
nnd suggestive exposure"? Does it
not occur to her that possibly her
grandparents might have been
Time's quip re the profits
($6,400) shared by the Red Cross
may render my views an "object
of ridicule," as did the same argument of Ken Broe and Don
Newson in the News-Herald,
February 11, 1946; but surely this
demonstrates the crass materialism of the present generation: the
cause is worthy, so we many go
the limit! Only a blind man couid
content that the posed photograph
reproduced in Time was "decent."
Archbiship Duke's Lenten pastoral told Catholics this morning
(March 3): "The modern world is
not willing to acknowledge sin. It
camouflages sin; it gives it a name
that seems to disguise the evil.
. . . Juvenile delinquency? . .
Youth has turned away from God
and tbo teachings of Christ and
from religion. . . A child, as soon
bh it arrives at the age of reason,
is obliged to obey the laws of God
the same as an adult. . . When a
child disobeys these laws we have
juvenile delinquency, or, in plain
English, sin."
My sympathy goes out to the
students at the UBC in their lack
of moral guidance when I see the
type of fly-by-night lecturer so
frequently foisted on them: lately,
the Russophife Dyson Carter, who
thus delivers himself on page 64
of his nauseating masterpiece,
"Sin and Science": "We would
hardly be exaggerating to say
that the modem chaplain's attitude towards sin, and the Soviet
attitude towards immorality, differ in just one direction: the former is sincerely preached, the
latter is successfully practised."
On which side, may I ask, is

Move Military
Camp To UBC
DR. NORMAN A. M. MacKenzie,
president of the University of
British Columbia, revealed on his
arrival from Ottawa conferences
Monday that negotiations are under way for the acquisition by
UBC of one complete army camp
and part of another.
Completion of the transaction,
he said, rested on settlement of
terms of sale.
The university wants a complete
army camp on Lulu Island, eight
miles from the campus, for conversion to apartments for 30 to 35
married student veterans.
UBC needs 56 huts for additional
teaching space, the president said.
Buildings for lecture rooms and
laboratories the university hopes
to get from surplus buildings at
Boundary Bay, where a number
of huts have ^lready been obtained.

are desperately needed in war-

donations will be placed at various
points throughout the campus. All
students are urged to support this
"HELLO UBC, Hello UBC, Hello UBC."
That call, cutting across the air waves one day last week,
may have been a mystery to most of those who heard it,
but to a few students listening around the'loudspeaker in
the back of hut 22, it was a sign that their organization had
really arrived.
Last October, 40 students with a
common Interest in amateur radio
met to talk things over, formed
thc University Amateur Radio
Club and set about trying to get
on the air.
Actual transmission was still
under government ban so their
first move was to appoint instructors from among more experienced
members to aid the beginners in
getting their tickets.
There was no shortage of experienced men, with several ex-
service radio operators, ono of
whom was mentioned in dispatches
for his work, as well as a few
pre-war hams.
Some equipment was Inherited
from a previous campus station,
along with the call letters
VE5ACS. Members contributed
parts of their own, downtown
stores and the physics department
were helpful, and gradually transmitter and receiver were assembled.
But the time they went on the
air two weeks ago the club had
become a power in the land, being
one of four organizations with
representation on the council of
BC Amateur Association.
Their 300 watt station will be
one of the best In the province,
but it still shows signs of the
.typical ham flair for Improvisation.
So far the boys are getting along
without a base plug, and they are
quite proud of their own private
network — made up of the wires
leading all around the room from
the single light In the celling.
Although operating on only one
tenth power at present, they have
already "worked" hams as far
East at Chicago, with stopovers at
Omaha, St. Louis, and Cincinnati.
All members with amateur licenses have free use of the set,
and almost any time you will find
someone searching through the
calls on the 10 metre band for a
CQ, the ham hello, or pounding
the key in answer to a call.
What actually comes out of the
speaker is just as often code too
fast for a novice to copy, or a
call directed to some particular
listener.    A  "CQ  phone"   is  out

sity stop the Bast Indians, 3-1,
while UBC absorbed a 3-2 defeat
at the hands of the Old Timers.
The opener between UBC and
Old Timers was one of the top-
notch tilts of the season, the Students losing a heartbreaker. Les
Bullen opened the scoring and
sent UBC into an early 1-0 lead.
Although the   Blue   and   Gold
squad kept up the pressure
through the rest of the first half,
Len Freer of the Old Timers managed to tally just before the half-
time whistle, tying the count.
The Old Timers showed a complete reversal of form in the second stanza, taking over control
of play. Doug Whittle combined
with Dr. Warren to send the OTs
into a 2-1 lead.
Although Bullen tallied again to
knot the count again, Bill Mel-
huish finished off the battle by
shooting a short corner shot into
the UBC nets just before the
final whistle.
In spite of the absence of their
star centre half and Captain, Don
Currie, Varsity came through with
a polished victory in the second
game. Tireless Ned Larsen initiated
most of the plays which led to
Norm Tupper's three goals.

HUT 2,
VARSITY'S romping Senior A hoop quintet, the Chiefs,
almost had the Intercity Hoop Title hanging from their
totem this week-end, but they faltered badly in the final
effort Saturday as Lauries extended the series the full five
games. "~"——~*""~"*~""""""-"""
The Chieftains had the Pirates
behind the eight ball after their
convincing triumph Friday night.
They rolled to a 41-33 count at the
Varsity Gym. But Laurie Liddle's
effervescent cagers hopped back
into the race Saturday night by
subjecting the college crew to a
startling 36-28 mauling on thc
King Ed Gym maples.
Haas and Stevenson provided
the spark in the tilt Friday night
as they sank the melon with ruthless accuracy in the pinches to
pull the fat out of the fire time
and again for the hardpressed
UBC warriors.
Led by the sophomore duo, the
Students powered to a 12-6 lead at
the quarter pole, and held the
margin to the breather as the Piemen found their maple-length
passes foiled completely.
Loping back onto the hardwood
after the intermission, the older
club managed to slice the gap by
one point by three-quarter time
when the Chiefs were still in front
by a 27-21 score as the contest
entered the final heat.
Art Johnson's whooping five
slipped off stride momentarily in
the last ten minutes, and the hammering Pirates crept to within
three points of the Chiefs' total
with three minutes to go, the
scoreboard reading 34-31.
The tension proved to be the
signal for Haas and Stevenson to
find their shooting eyes and a
brace of long heaves sent the University squad to the wire with
the eight-point victory.
King Ed Gym proved to be a
quagmire for the hapless Chiefs
in the fourth of the series however, as the Liddlemen hustled to
the win from the opening whistle.
Topping the scare card 8-5 at the
end of the first quarter, and leading by four points at the middle
The last half was something
which the Chiefs had to get out
of their systems as they couldn't
seem to unleash their driving
qualities which boosted them to
win in the second and third games.
The deciding contest is slated for
8 o'clock tonight at the King Ed
Gym,   hitherto  the Waterloo  for
the capering Chieftains.

Playoff Opener
THE ICE edition of the Thunderbirds swept into a commanding
position in tho BCHA playoffs
Sunday night when they trounced
the New Westminster All-Stars to
the tune of a 4-2 lacing at the
Queens Park Arena.
The game was a fast, scoreless
affair until Doug Haig, New Westminster centreman, slipped past
Varsity's brickwall of defence at
the 11-minute mark to rifle the
rubber past Bob Smith for thc
first counter.
The Students pressed like demons to score the tying marker
throughout the rest of the first
session, but were forced to leave
the ice on the bottom end of a
1-0 score at the whistle.
Harry Nelsford grabbed a pass
from Lloyd Torfason early in the
sandwich session to hoist the puck
past the belaboured Royal City
custodian and tie me game up.
The rampage continued and Varsity powered into the lead on a
power play by Art Greene and
Jim Rowledge who split the defence and sank the rubber for
the second tally.
Bob Saunders widened the gap
a few minutes later when he
blasted a shot past the All-Star
goalie on an unassisted play from
the blue line. The New Westminster club made that one up
with barely a minute to go in the
period, as Bill Dougherty passed
the disc to Ken Morrison who hit
the mesh with a deceptive backhand slice.
The final chapter saw plenty of
rough body-checking handed out,
and many a forward found himself subjected to the well-known
squeeze play as he attempted to
get a shot away. Bill Husband
put the clincher into the cage
halfway through the period on a
relay from Saunders which caught
the Frasertown crew flatfooted.
Bob Smith* starry netminder for
the Point Grey aggregation, played
a stellar game betwixt the pipes,
while Saunders romped about the
rink in a tireless effort which did
much to drive the university crew
to the win.
The second game of the semifinals is slated to be played at
Queens Park Arena next Sunday
'Bird XV Keeps
With 11-8 Win
SPARKED by Don Nesbit's brilliant kicking the Varsity Thunderbirds came from behind to down
the fighting Vancouver Lions 11-8
and retain possesion of the McKechnie Cup for another season.
Some 4000 spectators crammed
UBC Stadium to witness the thrilling final.
Sprinkled liberally with accidents and torn uniforms on both
sides, the tilt featured brilliant
scrum play by the 'Birds and
deadly three-line runs, starring
Vic Spencer, by the Lions.
Scoring for the day was opened
by Vic Spencer on a smashing 40-
yard dash down the field for a
try. Bill Kinder made good on
the convert making the score 5-0
for the Lions. The next tally wu
chalked up for the 'Birds when
Don Nesbit booted a penalty kick
for 3 points.
Final score in the first half went
to the Lions on another smashing
run by Vic Spencer, the convert
did not score. Injured on the play,
Spencer was taken out of the
Don Nesbit came forward again
with another good penalty kick
shortly after the opening of the
second half to make the score 8-6.
With 20 minutes left, Barny

man, plowed 5 yards from a line-
out for the 'Birds lone try of the
Equalling the Lions' total score
for the day by himself, Don Nesbit converted Curby's try and put
the 'Birds out in front, 11-8.
Lacking the spark of starr Vic
Spencer and unable to do apy-
thlng with the powerful 'Bird
scrum, the Lions were not able
to swing the score in their favour
before the final gun and lost theii
chances for the McKechnie Cup
honors for another year.
Saturday's game certainly was
not a roaring success for the Lions
but it was a success for the UBC
Memorial Gym Drive. Helping
with the roaring were the Jokers,
their cheering section and their
horse race, all adding to the general
color, splash and money-making
of the day.

Varsity Eleven
Loses Cup-Tie
THE SAYING that "There's no
place like home" was proven Saturday as the University teams won
on the campus but lost downtown.
And soccer was no exception as
UBC trimmed Pro-Rec Maple Leafs
7-1, on the Upper Field, while
Varsity lost its final Imperial Cup
game to Vancouver Uniteds, 3-1,
at Larwill Park.
Varsity was short-handed due to
illness of Jack Cowan and Stu
Wilson, having only one spare instead of the regular three. Even
so, they played cup-tie ball and
actually had most of the play.
Vancouver Uniteds started off
with a rush and almost scored in
the first minute of play when Bus
Byford bounced the ball off the
bottom of the cross bar. It bounced
on the line and goalie Moreton
made a quick clearance Into the
The first score was made by
Varsity after five minutes of play
when Pat Harrison picked the
'corner with a low shot. However,
Vancouver Uniteds came right back
ten minutes later and evened the
score with a header by Bus Byford.

The second half was not far gone

breezed in from nowhere with a
fast shot to put his team in the

winger Loutet broke away and
scored the third goal.
Thus Vancouver Uniteds won the
game and the Imperial Cup, which
was presented to them after the
gome. This is the second consecutive year that Varsity has made
the cup finals and lost.
On the campus upper field, the
UBC team thrilled the spectators
with fast, clean play as they
romped all over the field to swamp
Bob Quinn's team. UBC goalie,
Dick Stewart, almost obtained a
shutout, but Bernie Keeley robbed
him with a last-minute goal. The
scorers for UBC were Bill Thomas
(2), Gordy Shepherd (2), Jack
Blaekhall, Bill Berry, and Captain

packet themselves into the gymnasium, which is soon to be replaced, to witness casaba history
in the making. The 'Birds are the
first Canadian cagers to take an
American inter-collegiate conference crown.
Although the game started
slowly, the Blue and Gold quint
galloped ahead to a 17-6 lead in
the opening 10 minutes of play. It
was Harry Kermode who sparked
the local ive into the comfortable
lead, scoring 11 counters in the
first half.

the margin to four points as the
scoreboard registered a 29-25 count
at half time.
With Hunk Henderson checking
' Captain Bob Fincham to a standstill, the UBC hoopsters managed
to keep their lead. But big Bill
Glundberg who took over the
Lumberjack scoring duties, made
things exciting by potting the first
basket after the breather.
Evidently the slim two-point
lead was enough to scare the conference leaders into a scoring
drive that boosted their lead to 10
points. After seven minutes of the
second stanza had passed, Coach
Bob Osborne's hoop club led by a
39-29 count.
Although the Tacoma team challenged from time to time, the
'Birds managed to keep to the fore,
and they still held a 10-point
margin at the five-minute mark
with a score of 54-44,
But this was the point where
Ron Weber was awarded his fifth
foul, and the Puget Sound squad
began to battle like Trojans. Three
quick baskets closed the gap to
four points, and the crowd came
to life as the two clubs went all-
out in the final three minutes.
Neither team could hit the
hemp during that time, but Harry
Kermode managed to break
through for the basket that put
the game on ice just before the
final horn.
Kermode and Sandy Robertson
led the Blue and Gold scorers with
18 points each, and Glundberg led
the Loggers with 15.
