'FASCIST LEGIONS'MAY
TAKE OVER BROCK HALL
The "mock" in Mock Parliament will be emphasized
today when UBC students set up an official "fascist" party
with the avowed intention of "taking over the government
of the Alma Mater Society."
Sparkplug of the new party is student A. S. Williams
who says undergraduates have demonstrated "an unwillingness and inability to govern themselves."
His organization meeting to form a party for forthcoming Mock Parliament sessions will be held today at noon
in Arts 208.
Reporter Interviews
1948-49 Legislators
Slate of Officers Enthusiastic
About New Duties on Council
By MARJORIE McDONALD
Next year's legislators were sounded out Tuesday to give
UBC students a notion of what to expect next year from the
recently-elected members to Student Council.
The search for the 1948-49 incumbents was carried to such
diversified campus haunts as the Caf, Library, Gym, Law
Huts and even the Engineers' Pep Meet.
President Brousson, laughing with the other Red Devils
at the meet, said he would endeavour to live up to his slogan,
"a big man for a big job."
'Very Happy to be Serving'
Nancy Davidson looked up from her
duties as LSE 'secretary long enough
to say that she was "very happy lo
be serving council next year." Nancy
was elected AMS secretary by acclamation.
Future LSE chairman Roger Pederson stopped his bridge game to say
"now election period was over, the
undergrads should support the council elect in anticipating another year
of  growth  and  porgress".
Junior     Member     Ian     Mackenzie,
caught escaping from the Caf, had no
plans for next year other than that
he "will try to foster a true university
spirit." He will also try to pass his
Forestry course, he said.
As president of the WAA for a second consecutive time, Jackie Sherman said that WAA had "big plans
for next year". Jackie, who plays
basketball and grass hockey herself,
"will do everything to make next
year a success",

president of the University Society,
yesterday.
The broadcast, to be transcribed
on Monday at 8:00 p.m. over CBC
is open tfe the general public. People
must be in their seats by 8:00 p.m.,
according to Perrault.
The question: "Is the export of
Canadian graduates detrimental to
development of the nation?" will be
discussed by a board of professors
who will afterwards subject themselves to questions and criticisms
from a group of 20 selected students
and  the audience.
.' Miss Somerset, representing the
cultural, Dr. G. M. Shrum the scientific, and Dr. A. J. Crumb the economic aspects of modern life will
compose the board of professors.

UPPED BY 200
United Nations Club membership
has increased by about 200 this week,
according to Jim Sutherland, president of the campus branch.
Membership before this week was
117. It Is now 450. There are three
days yet to go.
"Our objective is 1000 students
anyhow," said Sutherland. "We
would really like to see every student at UBC enroled."

Pharmacists Say Charge
Of UBC Prof 'Ridiculous'
BC Pharmaceutical officials believe there is "no need"
to investigate what they term "ridiculous" charges made by
UBC professor W. G. Black.
Grant Livingstone snapped that She
was being "totally irresponsible, as
you have been all year,"
Jerry   Macdonald,   LSE   president,
voiced a "Hear, Hear."
"FED UP"
Mfss Clarke spun hotly on her heel
and said "This is the last straw. I am
completely fed up with the attitude
of you two" and left the room.
Stuart Porteous, junior member,
moved after the women's representative had retired, to accept the proposed resignation.
Porteous' motion was ruled out of
order by chairman Livingstone.
Miss Clarke did not return to the
meeting after  her  "Gromyko."
NEVER ANGRy
Formal notice of resignation was
contained in a letter addressed t'
Livingstone submitted by Miss Clarke
Tuesday.
"At no time was I angry , ., nor did
I act under ... a passion of the moment" the letter states, reaffirming
the statement made at the  meeting.
"My reasons for resigning are
simple," she said, "Council, this year
has been a machine ..."

First Resignation in Ten Years
Nora Clarke, president of the Women's Undergraduate
Society, coolly gathered her robes about her late Monday night,
told her fellow council members that she would resign her
post "as of now", and stalked from the chambers.
A formal note of resignation addressed to Livingstone
Tuesday made the curly-headed co-ed the first member of
student council to resign in the past ten years.

Next Year Great for Athletics
Bud Speirs, new MAD president,
was "happy to be elected" and felt
confident that "next year will be a
truly great one for men's athletics".
Plenty of executive experience is
behind Sophomore Member Pete
Murphy. He is past president of Vancouver College and Frosh head this
year. Murphy was filled with reverence for his seniors and "looking forward to his year as council 'joe-boy'.
Co-ordinator Chick Turner hopes
to fill his position by "co-operating
fully to insure the success of next
year's council".
Team manager of the Thunderbirds,
Treasurer Paul Plant, had left for
Tacoma with the team yesterday
morning and was unavailable for a
statement.
WUS chief Helen Lindsay and USC
chairman Dave Williams were not
to be found on the campus or at home.
Miss Lindsay was president of third
year Arts girls before becoming head
woman in WUS. Williams was past
president of the Parliamentary Forum
prior to his being elected CUSC by
acclamation.
Officials of the association withdrew
Tuesday an earlier statement that
they would launch a probe into the
sale of "habit-forming" patent nostrums.
Dr. Black had told his social psychology class that excessive use of
patent pain-relievers had led in many
cases to a form of addiction to the
drugs.
F. H. Fullerton, general manager oi
the association, told the Daily Ubyssey
that announcement of the probe had
come from an official who had no
authority to speak for the association.
Through error, the statement was
attributed to Mr. Fullerton, when actually it was made by another employee of the association.

SIGNBOARD
THE PROF AND THE PAPER BOY
It sometimes seems a shame that the
natural restrictions of a university curriculum
must mean that the words of professors are
'bottled up for the almost sole use of students
whose main ambition is to write them down
again in an examination booklet.
At times when we're in a fanciful mood,
we like to think of the journalists that could
be produced if Norman MacKenzie were
running a newspaper instead of a university.
The fund of historical background to
today's news and the wealth of information in
every field with which Editor MacKenzie
could cram his pages would r elegate any New
York Times to the journalistic backwoods.
We like to think of the results if current
history were to be interpreted in the press
by historians instead of Broadway gossip
shovellers.
It's a nice dream, of course, but as long as
potential Editor MacKenzie insists on keeping
UBC a university we think his staff can give
very real service to those who must look to
the paper boy instead of the professor for
knowledge.
On a day-to-day, informal basis, the university, and all the compounded knowledge
that it represents, can come in the front door
to the homes of all the community's citizens.
We think the professor and the paper boy
form an unbeatable team.
If the university is to serve the community as a whole the professor must speak
from the linotype as well as from the lecture
hall.
That's why we feel a professor's lecture
periods would make "good copy" for any enterprising editor. Many a UBC professor could
give a healthy Vitamin D shot to today's
gangling "awkward-age" journalism.
people are saying . . .
Fine Editorial
Dear Sir:
The Executive and Committee
Directorate join with me in thanking you for the fine editorial in
your issue of Tuesday, February
17th which paid tribute to the
Legion for its efforts in obtaining
the increased allowances for married student veterans. The group
of Legionaires who have been
working on this matter for the
past two and a half years are only
human and are greatly pleased
by this editorial comment in your
newspaper.
The reward for their efforts lies
in their satisfaction of knowing
that 1500 students at UBC as well
as thousands of others across thc
country have had their burdens
lightened, and that the educational
rehabilitation plan will proceed to
a more successful conclusion.
Don   A,   S,   Lanskail
Distracting Lovelies
Dear Sir:
I think it is generally agreed that
the women on the campus are a
distraction to the studious efforts
of us university men. I have a
suggestion that would remedy this
deplorable   situation.
All coeds should be required to
wear loose gray academic gowns
while on the campus. This would
keep our eyes on our books, and
it is a remedy that should not
meet with the disapproval of the
women themselves for they have
already started the trend with
their curb-dragging hemlines.
W. G. McOuat.
Thanks
Sir:
1 wish to express my highest
regards for the kind person who
mailed to me the papers from my
wallet which mysteriously disappeared from the stadium. If
more people would show these
simple courtesies I am sure the
loss of a wallet or two would be
completely overlooked. The fact
thai' my papers appeared on Valentine's Day makes the act all
the more forgiveable. All that is
necessary to make the forgiveness complete would be the return of the wallet, my three
dollars covering the cost of handling and  mailing.
Gratefully   yours,
N.   Godfrey
Hag and Stag
Dear Sir:
May we use the columns of
vour paper to express our appreciation to the women's Phys Ed
majors, the Men's Gym Club, and
the Varsity Band for their splendid
assistance, cooperation and showmanship in the presentation of the
entertainment at the Hag and Stag
Basketball game last Friday night?
Lome Glendinning,
Herb   Capozzi
Fascists "In There"
Dear Sir:
Whereas the 1948-49 Students
Council was elected by a minority
of the students thus demonstrating
the potent fact that students place
little regard upon democratic
rights;
Whereas this abuse of democratic privilege has resulted in a
dictatorship in fact and demonstrated the unwillingness and inability of students to govern themselves;
Whereas McMaster University
Students Council has recently declared itself a dictatorship because
of compenable student apathy and
indifference in thc regulation of
their affairs;
Therefore   be   it   known   that   a
Fascist Unity Party will be formed
at a  meeting to  be held  on Wednesday,   February   25   at   12:30   in
Arts 208  in  order  to  form  a  government at the forthcoming Mock
Parliament    for    the    purpose    of
/taking    over    the    government    of
the   AMS   at   UBC.   Those   unable
to attend may sign their names on
the   card   in     the     Parliamentary
Forum board in the Arts building.

Hospitality  Appreciated
Dear Sir:
This is just a note to let the
students of UBC know how much
we appreciate the fine hospitality
shown us on our recent visit to
your campus.
We came unannounced as two
visiting students from UCLA and
were received with interest and
enthusiasm by everyone we met.
Especially are we grateful to the
Players Club and the Radsoc for
acting as our guides. Tlie Women's
»ki Team whom we had the pleasure to meet, gave further evidence of UBC's congenial atmosphere.
We have gained immeasureably
by exchange of ideas with the
students of British Columbia. I
can't help thinking what a "shot
in the arm" to national relations
it would be if all students could
have this sort of experience.
If any of you while travelling
in the southland stop in at UCLA
you will find two good friends at
your service by looking up:
Joseph H.  S.  Widney,
Richard  N.   Brown
No Competition
Dear Sir:
Re no competition for Susan
Joy .  . .
If you would care to examine
closely the news item in your Friday paper, it will be self evident
why there is no competition for
Susan Joy.
My wife and I were looking forward to offering some keen competition but we are unable to do
so as the contest is more or less
a "closed affair'.
During the recent competition I
was informed that the contest was
a "closed affair" being limited to
babies of Little Mountain and
Acadian Camp residents,
Now as we have a baby representing UBC veterans I feel the
ccntest should be all embracing
and should not be a closed affair,
As the UBC Legion is responsible
for the contest I feel they should
eliminate their first rule or they
will have no competition. Veterans
of other universities will not be
able to meet resident qualifications.
I wish to extend my congratulations to the proud parents and to
wish Susan Joy all success in her
coming adventure,
She is cute but ours is cuter!

By LES BEWLEY
YOUR      OLD
Uncle B., who
never fails to greet
the blithesome
morn with a muffled curse, was
feeling even more
savage than usual
the other morning.
Like all antisocial people, he goes
to sleep every night secure in the
dream that, when he wakes up in thc
morning, all humanity will be lying
around in tlie streets, dead from some
unknown virus. Sometimes, in his
happier dreams, the streets have been
cleaned of! as the corpses have all
been buried in unknown graveyards.
And every morning he wakes up
and finds that he has be^n cheated
again,
This makes him feel blue, bitter and
bellicose. So much so, in fact, that
when he cracks eggs open upon the
frying-pan, he gets small satisfaction
from the thought that he is preventing
one more noisy, ugly, cheeping little
chick from springing into the world.
This manic-depressive tendency is
not soothed by his radio, which, under
the impression that it is an insane
organ-grinder, grinds forth a repetitive, maddening little ditty called:
"Pee-puls cray-dit joo-lers the hoh-
mm of frayn-dly cray-dit."
Your Uncle would like to crack
pee-puls cray-dit jooo-lers into his
big steel frying pan and fry them, too|
As this maddening series of events
happens every morning, your Uncle
is in no condition to pick up his
morning paper and read that Beta
Theta Pi men have been killing and
eating cocker spaniels.
Puppy Hairs
He was in no such condition
when he sat in the Brock bar the
other morning, gloomily eating his
fried egg sandwiches and imagining
that he tasted puppy hairs in his soup.
Consequently, when he heard a
shrieking female behind him say::
"Roger, you're the utterly MADDEST
character" and Roger, in reply, mumbled: "aaah, drop dead', he felt gloomier than ever, and fell straightway into
a  daydream.
Roger H. Dogbiter, a normal and
likeable young man in other respects,
had a bad habit of saving speech and
using other people's cliches, instead.
Never was a jiggeroo line, a punch
phrase, that Roger didn't adopt, warm
over, and flog to death with constant
repetition.
In kindergarten, Roger constantly
said: "without a shirt'. In High School,
it was: "Open the door, Richard.' In
university, it was: "aaah, drop dead."
If he said 'aaaah,drop dead" once,
he said it fifty times a day.
One morning last week, on his way
to university, Roger ran in front of
the varsity bus as it pulled away from
the curb. The obliging driver opene-i
the door for him.
"Watch that," said the driver.
"You'll  get killed that  way."
"Aaaah" said Roger. "Drop dead."
"What" said the driver "and look
like you?"
Roger put in a full day on the
campus, said drop dead to everyone
who spoke to him, picked up his
Daily Ubyssey, and caught an outgoing bus.
Mad, Mad Boy
He was somewhat startled to see
his own picture on page one of the
Ubyssey.
"DROPS DEAD" the cutline under
the picture read. "Roger H. Dogbiter,
20, who met instantaneous death under
the wheels of a bus ..."
When Roger stepped out of the
bus at Sasamat, with the shocked
look still on his face, an angel was
waiting for him—an angel with Roger's passport in his hand, and a smile
on his rather unpleasant features.
* » *
"Utterly mad" said Mary Poochkill-
er, nestling in her boy friend Teddy's
arms. "You are the MADDEST character, Teddy."
He is, she thought. He certainly is.
The MADDEST character. Wrapped
in her rosy dream, she scarcely felt
the light pricking sensation, first on
one ear, then the other. Mad, mad
boy ,she thought. He's biting my ears.
She dozed a little.
When she woke, she found herself
alone. The room was very quiet.
Teddy's in tlie kitchen, she thought.
Teddy was. He was under the kitchen table, on all fours, making up a
sandwich. When Mary came in, he
baied his teeth in a canine growl.
"Mad, mad boy"said Mary, dropping
to her knees beside the table. "Give

Hell Week" at UCLA
Dog Killing Condemned
By UBC fraternities
By FRANK WALDEN
Beta Theta Pi fraternity at UBC
has  not   yet  gone   to  the  dogs.
However, they are hanging their
heads at the news that their California brothers have reportedly
killed a small cocker spaniel during initiation week and possibly
eaten  it.
Opinion of the other UBC fraternities unanimously condemned the
"hell   week"   killing   of   the   little
puppy.
NO COUNTERPART
"A hazing policy such as that
evidently displayed by the UCLA
chapter of the Beta Theta Pi is
certainly not endorsed by tho
general fraternity and has no
counterpart  in  the  policy  of  the
UBC     chapter,"     said     fraternity
member Chick Turner.
The Inter-Fraternity Council
and the AMS constitution prevents
public hazing, according to Inter-
Fraternity president Hank Sweatman, and all Greek groups consulted said their initiations adhered to this rule.
Phi Gamma Delta emphasized
that their hazing was strictly secret, serving to acquaint all tho
new members with the old. Phi
Kappa Pi said theirs was personal
and nothing rough. They said
they definitely don't go for dog-
killing.
"From personal experience, hazing arouses no ill-feeling" said
fraternity member Hass Schjelderup. '
DISGRACE
"Delta Upsilon is against public
hazing and against eating dogs,"
exclaimed Phil Tindlo. "If it' (the
reported killing) is true, I think
it  is  a  damn  disgrace."
Most Greeks agreed that such an
incident will do considerable harm
to  fraternity   reputations.
- Chi Sigma Chi deplored the situation, too. 'Hell week," they affirmed, "provides a chance for
everyone  to get acquainted."
Zeta Psi's replied that 1> hazing
was strictly their own affair and
2) it was carried on in an intelligent manner.
Other   fraternities
similar view.

From an idea that germinated among UBC student veterans,

public appearance of the Engineer's
Music Society at Tuesday's pep meet.
Fifteen hundred students who attended the Armory meet registered
their disappointment at the departure
from tradition in the presentation of
serious music by removing the cushions from their seats and hurling
them at the stage.
The meet was organized with the
joint purpose of advertising the Engineers' Ball tonight and tomorrow
and promoting the International Student Service drive for funds to help
European students.
About $100 was collected for the
ISS by the pep meet, said Ron Grantham.  EUS president,

"You have on five occasions before

of these occasions offered proof of

"Last night was the final breaking-

The letter, first of its kind to be
written in the recent history of the
AMS, alleges that Livingstone had,
in private, accused Miss Clarke of
"promoting the obvious animosity
which exists between Jerry Macdonald, yourself (Livingstone) and myself (Miss Clarke.) You implied then
that this friction was the cause of the
council's failure to operate efficient-

ITS THE AIR
"It's the Atlantic air," he said,
"West coast air is probably better
than that of the prairies for putting
roses in the kids' cheeks but far
short of New Brunswick zones."
University of Saskatchewan for

has been extended to March 1st, state
that they can "show the residents
of Canada's winter Banana belt at
least a dozen babies which will put
to shame the fog-smirked physiogs
of their cradle-sprayers."
VERY BEAUTIFUL
McGill University admits that
Susan Thorneycroft is a "very beautiful young lady" and that it will be
necessary to beat her" to hold up
McGill's  high  standards."
UBC supporters, however, maintain their original stand, Susan Joy
Thorneycroft  leigns supreme.
New York Critics
Praise Music Prof
New York critics are praising the
teamwork of violinist Harry Adaskin,
and his wife, Frances Marr, pianist,
after their New York debut last
week.
Mr. Adaskin, professor of Music at
the University of British Columbia,
and his wife presented the same
program they played at a Brock Hall
recital before they left for the east.
The New York Herald Tribune
commended Adaskin's sensitive and
thorough renditions and the sincerity
of his approach."
"An unusual display of teamwork,"
and understanding of the music they
played drew applause from the New
York   Times  critic.
The program, which the Times
also praised for it's direct musical
appeal consisted of a Concerto by
Barbara Pentland, a Toronto composer; Hindesmith's Sonata in C,
Delius' Concerto, and Serenata by
Rieti.

Memorial Fund Dedicated
To Japanese UBC Grad
By JIM BANHAM
A Japanese graduate of the University of British Columbia,
Shuichi Kusaka, who drowned in an accident in the eastern
United States last year, is to have a memorial fund dedicated to
his memory by the Physics Department of Princeton University.
The fund is being set up "to assists
and  encourage  student's   in  physics,"
a letter to Van Perry of the University
Extension Department disclosed.
The award will be made annually
to the most promising student in
physics regardless of race, religion,
color or creed. It would be made to
a member of the senior class or to a
graduating student of Princeton,
OSAKA BORN
Born in Osaka in 1915, Kusaka
came to Vancouver at the age of
five, In 1937 he graduated from UBC
with highest honors in mathetmatics
and physics.
He then enrolled at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
where he received his masters degree
in 1938. He then proceeded to the
University of California where he
was awarded a Ph.D. in theoretical
physics in 1942.
His attempts to enlist in the* American army were realized two years
later and he left to join the staff at
Aberdeen Proving Ground, His work
was of so much value there that intervention by the highest authority
was necessary before he could rejoin
the faculty of Princeton in 1946 as
an instructor,
APPOINTED PROFESSOR
Just prior to his death in August
of 1947 he was appointed an assistant
professor,
Unmarried, he is survived by his
parents and one sister in Japan. Another sister lives in British Columbia.
Subscriptions to this fund of any
amount are invited from his friends
and admirers. Cheques should be
made payable to Princeton University
and mailed to Henry Dewolf Smith,

Hockeymen Meet Clippers
In Senior B Semi-Finals
Action of the fast and furious variety will be seen elsewhere
than at the Inferno tonight when the UBC Thunderbirds meet
the Nanaimo Clippers at the Forum, beginning at 8:30.
The   game   will   decide   who   wills —
enter the finals against the New
Westminster Cubs for the Senior B
Championship. Should the Birds win
the first game of the best-of-five
series will be played Thursday night.
Nanaimo will find themselves at a
definite disadvantage on the ilarger
Forum ice, after playing all of the
season's games on their home sheet
at the Coal City — a playing surface
which is much smaller.
FRANK IS SURE
Frank Frederickson, coach of the
UBC entry is quite confident of a win,
after the great showing put up by
his boys in the weekend tilts. For
the series on the island, the Birds
outshot the Clippers by a handsome
90-50 margin and only some sensational goaltending by Mike Rivers in
the Nanaimo nets kept the coal city
crew in the series.
However, Rivers is thc type of
goaler who is really hot as long as
the score is tied or in his favor, but
once he has let a few shots past him,
he is just average.
On the other hand, Bill House who
will be handling the big stick for
the campus club, is unbeatable on
shots that he can see, but has a little
difficulty on screen shots from far
out, Some of the shots he stopped
in the last' game were ticketed for
the corner, but Bill managed to get
a piece of the puck. All he needs
to do now, is to fall on the puck a
little faster in the scrambles, and he
will be one of the best tenders in
the  circuit.
CLIPPERS NEED MacKAY
As regards defence, the Birds are
just a trifle to the good, boasting
two good pairs, while Nanaimo has
been at a loss for defencemen since
they lost the two MacKays to the
PCHL. Nelford and Saunders will
probably start at the defense posts,
with rookie Bob Peebles and ex-forward Jim Rowledge pairing up for
the second duo, Both these boys
have shown that they are not afraid
to put their bodies into the attacking
forwards, but their positional playing
is a little weak.
The forward lines are well balanced in regard to stick-handling and
passing, but the Nanaimo sharpshooters have (he better of it around
the goal mouth.
For the Birds, the line of Young,
Andrew and Berry is the likely one
to start, with Torfason, Wagner and
Koch spelling them.
In the scoring at Nanaimo the line
centred by Andrew had a slight edge
in the scoring gathering 11 points
t'o the Wagner line's 9. However, the
first line is much farther ahead in the
goals against bracket, having had
but one of the Clipper's nine goals
scored while they were on the ice,
The rest were netted while the second
team was out there,
BERRY SPARKLES
Hugh Berry, who netted one goal
and assisted in two others, was the
pick of the club, not so much for
his scoring efforts but for his continual drive and sparkling 'both-
ways' effort.
However, picking a star would be
hard and it's up lo you to come out
tonight and decide  for yourself.
Game time  is 8:30 at  the Forum.
AMERICAN GRID
Spring practices have begun for
American football. All those interested in this game are asked to turn
out in the Stadium Monday. Wednesday,   or   Friday   at   4:0(1   p.m.
OPEN LETTER
by HAL MURPHY
TO GREG KABAT:
We hope that your current spring
grid training is the first step towards
a  really  terrific  season  of  football.
Good luck frm this department.
TO UBC GYMNASTS: "" '
Many thanks, from all the hoop fans
that have been going to basketball
games lately, for your thrilling and
appreciated half time entertainment.
TO HOCKEY PANS:
The big game of the year is scheduled tonight for the Forum. Funny
thing is, the Thunderbirds are in good
position to sweep the event. Pre-
game optimism indicates a possible
5-4 score for the Blue and Gold.
TO THE RUGGER BOYS:
Buck up lads, the season is just getting under way. The kinks should be
ironed out before the big trip to
California, and we hope that the
Australia game slated for next week
really makes UBC rugby conscious,
TO THE BAND AND
CHEERLEADERS:
Oh where, oh where can you be?
TO HOOP FANS:
Next year you may not be embarrassed by a hot and cold club quite
as much as you have been. Indications
are that next year's 'Birds will be
one of the best yet. There's quite a
bit of good material coming up from
the Chiefs.
TO  THE  WEATHERMAN:
There   is   nothing  wrong   with   the
weather; there is just too much of it.
Students, Luckies
In Return Contest
Do or Die is the theme of the
muttering around amongst
Doug Whittle's UBC Chiefs today as the Students prepare
for the second match of their
best of three semi-final series
with the New Westminster
Luckies.
The Chieftains dropped their first
contest with Luckies, Monday night in
the Fraser town by a slim 36-34 count
so they will have to take this evening's
affair to stay in the running.
However, after Monday's sterling
effort in the tricky Royal City maples,
observers have voted the Whittlemen
a better than even chance to take
the Luckies in the campus gym.
LOW SCORES
Chiefs were definitely off during the
last match as the low individual
scores indicate, while the 10 out of
17 free shots which they missed would
have taken the game nicely.
Tonight's contest is the Students'
last chance to stay in the Senior A
race and the hoys have made up their
minds to dig in and stop the rough
and ready New Westminster aggregation.
SEMI-FINALS
Starting tonight's entertainment,
Dominion champion Clover Leafs will
saw-off against Ted Milton's Arrows
in their own division of the semi-final
play downs.
The Leaf-Arrows tilt gets away at
7:30 pm while Chiefs meet the Luckies
at 8:30 pm.
—Daily Ubyssey Photo by -Bob Steiner
PIVOT MAN—Lanky freshman Art Phillips who paced the
UBC Chiefs in their recent semi-final sawoff against the 'New
Westminster Luckies will be starting in the center slot for the
students tonight when they tangle with the Luckies in a rematch
at the UBC Gym.
Chief Hoop Squad Drops
Close Game to Luckies
It's not certain whether the New Westminster Luckies have
ever been to Ireland but they certainly had the luck of the
Emerald Isle Monday night when Gordy McDonald sank a
hope shot from center floor to give their a 36-34 verdict over
the UBC Chiefs.
By virtue of the win, the Whittle-^
men are now one game clown in their
Minor League Hoop Squads
Sweep North Van Series
Playing the second half of their two game total point series
against North Van, both of UBC Minor League entries fought
their way to victory on their home maples Monday night.
Over the inlet last Saturday eevning,®	
the  UBC Inter A and  Senior B
played   the
re-
first
presentative   teams
games of the series.
That night the Inter A boys seemed
to have a little trouble getting started
and held only a slight lead at half
time, However in the second half they
began to roll and notched up a 44-21
win,
SENIOR B-LOSS
The Senior B's did not fair quite as
well. Even though they displayed lots
of fight in the game they went down
to defeat at the hands of the North
Van club, 30-26.
However, when the weekend was
over and the boys had recovered from
their long late trip, things were different. With one game already under
their belts and the fact that they were
now playing on their home courts, the
UBC lads played better, faster and
more accurate ball.
In the initial tilt of the evening, the
Inter A men under the watching eye
of coach Ivor Wynne, roared into high
gear and ran away with a 78-33 basketball game. At the end of the first
quarter, though, the UBC players held
only a slim 14-13 lead. In the next
quarter the boys began to roll and j
took a 31-20 lead at half time. After
that it was all over for the lads from
North Van.
DOUBLE FIGURES
Five of the six man team flaying
Inter A for UBC Monday night hit
the double figures. Final score of the
total point series was 122-54.
Starting the night with a four point
deficit in the total point series, the
Senior B team had to fight hard all
the way down the line to be able to
complete the series with a 57-56 win.
Swim   Eliminations
At Crystal Pool
Ivor Wynn, Intramural boss reports
that the remaining eliminations for
thc 'mural swimming championships
will be held today (Wednesday) from
4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Crystal Pool
Cricket Squads
Begin Practices
Cricket made its reappearance on
the campus Friday evening when the
Varsity cricket club officially started
its indoor coaching and training programme in the Armories.
Showing up for the fust practice
were such stalwarts as Les Bullen and
Pete Hobson who were picked last
summer for the B.C. team which
played to a draw in Toronto.
Last year Varsity was fortunate
enough to have the able assistance
of two "Old Country" players who
gave, many valuable hints on the
finer points of the game. It is hoped
this year to have a repeat performance  by  these  two  men.
All those interested in playing on
one of UBC's cricket teams this
summer are asked to get in touch
with either Pete Hobson at AL 0051,
or Dave Pudney at AL 1476-R, or
to turn out on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
in the Armories.
Officials of the club have provided
nets enabling bowling and batting
practise for everyone who attends.

Final Game of Best of Three

BE THERE
best of three semi-final Senior A
basketball series with the boys from
the Royal City.
SLOW START
Slowed down by the tricky New
Westminster gym and a tight, zone defense put up by the Luckies, the Students took a while to get started.
In the meantime Jack Edmonson's
cagers took advantage of the breaks
to lead the race at half time by a slim
15-11 margin.
LUCKIES LEAD
Throughout the third quarter,
Luckies retained their edge and for a
time it looked as though the Chieftans were going to concede the tilt.
However the last frame was only
seconds old when all get-out broke
loose. The Frasertown men were tiring fast and in no time flat the Students, led by center Art Phillips, had
knotted the score at 29 all and then
picked up a 3-point lead.
From then on it was anybody's
match with the Luckies tying the
score once again late in the last
minute of play.
HOPE SHOT
Both teams fought desperately for
the ball  as the final seconds  of the
contest ticked away. Then McDonald
grabbed the pill under his own basket,
raced to center floor, lofted a high
one into thc air and sank it to wind
up  the  evening.
The match was characterized by low
scoring on both sides so that the 11
points of student Bobby Boyes made
up the high count of the evening.
McDonald led the winners with 8
markers.
TENNIS TEAM TRYOUT
All those interested in trying out
for the men's tennis team are asked
