Totems Go On Sale Today
Yearbook Staff Launches
Extensive Sales Campaign;
Dollar Down Week Oct. 15-22
• RE TOTEMi The Business Staff of the 1942 Totem  takes  pleasure  In  proclalnmlng  the
week of October 15-22 as Dollar Down Week. During theae eight days, students will
have the opportunity of securlnf: a copy of the Totem by depositing a dollar at one of the
following stations!
1. Publicationa Board — In Brock Hall — open all day.
2. Players' Club and Mualcal Society, Fraternities and Sororities—-for the benefit of Greeks
and club membera, repreaentatlvea from each group will take in dollars, dole out receipts.
3. Quad Box Office — watch the Ubyssey and notice boards for dates.
• WITH THE GLADSOME tidings of last  year's success
still echoing, the Totem business staff girds its loins for
the annual battle against Joe "Missouri" College.
Joe is the little guy that doesn't want to buy a Totem
until he sees what they look like — the "I'm from Missouri ..." line — and he gets stuck every year.
There were a  lot of Joe. (and ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Joaephlnea)    around    th.   campua e-____________________a________________»
laat year who refused to take advantage of "Dollar Down Week",
but who rushed over to th. AMS
office In May. They had seen the
"AU-Amerlcan" Totem and they
wanted  to  buy.
Well . . . they didn't get a
Totem.
You see, this Dollar Down business was created especially for
the students. It was found to be
the most convenient, and economical methyl of selling Totems,
and the plan was inaugurated at
student  request.
Briefly, It enables the purchaser
to guarantee himself a copy of the
Totem early In the year by depositing one dollar during Dollar
Down Week. The purchaser then
docs not pay his other two dollars
(full price of wartime Totem:
$3.00) until he receives his copy
of  the book  In  April.
The education of the university
student, however, ls laborious Indeed.
Here Is the perfect set-up. Jn
universities all across the continent, yearbooks sell for five dollars
(or more), with purchase In many
Instances compulsory, and on a
strictly   all-at-once   basis.
Last year, exactly 962 University
of British Columbia students purchased a copy of the historic, All-
American Totem. A poor percentage for an enrollment of over
2600. /
Several hundred more copies
could have been sold to those who,
TREASURER PORTER
 guards  budget
after seeing the book in April,
stormed the AMS office looking
for 'extra' prints.
Again and again lt was explained: The Totem prints only the
number of copies sold through the
Dollar Down campaign. No Dollar
Down—no   Totem.
Once again, then, the Publications Board explains the machinery of its Totem, and cautions
students to take fxill advantage of
Dollar   Down Week.
You will want a 1942 Totem. Go,
then, to one of the stations, and
deposit your dollar, get your receipt,  and be assured of a copy.
Totem Adds
Varsity To
Many Maps
• LAST SPRING, the University of British Columbia was added to a lot of
maps throughout Canada
because of the publicity accorded its Dominion Champion   basketball   team.
This Fall, another herald
of U. B. C. is trumpeting
through the land—this time
throughout the entire continent. For the 1941 All-Am-
erican Totem is destined to
carry British Columbia into
the homes of university students from coast to coast and
border to border.
Part of the profeaslonal services offered by National Scholastic Press Association is a Loan
Bureau which sends the superior
publications, All - Americans, to
yearbook editors in colleges everywhere.
PREPAREDNESS
Most highly complimented section of the 1941 Totem was that
devoted to portraying the University's drive toward Preparedness
through military training, raising
of monies for war charities.
The Totem is going to carry that
message of Preparedness into colleges and universities across the
line, and put the University of
British Columbia on a lot more
maps.
N. S. P. A. Valued Critics
• N.S.P.A. -NATIONAL Scholastic Prof's Association—as sage
a group of judges as the Supreme
Court, and with the power of life
arid death, sits in solemn conclave,
while thousands of year book staff
members anxiously await their
decision.
It is the annual judgment. To
their offices in the Department of
Journalism. University of Minnesota, have come yearbooks from .
colleges and universities throughout Canada and the United States.

fingertips, valuable suggestions for
for improving the format of their
hook.
THEME   GOOD
For example, the 10-11 Totem was
highly praised for Its ''theme'' —
that of the University in wartime
—and for the writing which in
tlio opinion of the judge was
"realistic, colorful, without being
freakish or even undignified," yet
was severely taken to task for
pages where many small pictures
wero crammed on ono page as a
composite.
•'Totem', moans the judge,"are-
nt you over going to learn that

throe or four good little dinky
ones?"
There will be no "dinky" shots
in the 1942 1942 book. And therein
lies   in   the  value  of  N.S.P.A.
EDITOR QUICK
 worked feverlahly
Elizabeth Quick
Makes Meteoric
Rise To Fortune
• FROM FRESHETTE to
editor of Canada's finest year book ls the story of
Elizabeth Eleanor Quick's
first two years on the campus of U.B.C.
A meteoric rise—the hard
way — accomplished within
the span of two short years,
topped with the amazing
success of Editor Quick's
1941 Totem.
Two years ago, in the September of 1939, when she first stepped
the campus grass, a freshette,
fresh from Fresno State College,
"Quickie" started moving up.
That year she served as Activities   Editor.
And that year the Totem was
awarded   "First   Class"    honours.
RAPID   RISE
The foUowing year, 1940-41, she
became editor of the Totem, when
Hampton Oray, slated for office,
joined the Navy. The appointment did not come through until
late September — four summer
months of potential planning lost
—but Elizabeth Quick accepted
the responsibility, became Editor
Quick,   worked   feverishly.
And that year the Totem was
awarded "_*U - American" honours!
It was more than just a hobby,
an "extra-curricular" activity,
this editorship; for seven months
it became meat and drink, the
centre around which everything
.spun in a hazy circumference. Result: the production of thc finest
year book ever published ln Canada.
To Elizabeth Eleanor Quick goes
the praise of her 25 predecessors;
to those faresighted enough to
purchase a copy of the 1941 Totem
a share in the history that was
made   by   her   last   year.

First Canadian
Annual to Win
NSPA Award
•    "ALL AMERICAN".
The highest honours awarded to a yearbook came to the
University of British Columbia this week with the announcement from the National Scholastic Press Association that
the 1941 Totem had been given an "All American" rating.
By winning such an award, the 1941 Totem makes yearbook history, being the first,collegiate annual in Canada ever
to be accorded such singular praise.
Competing with books entered from- colleges and universities throughout the length and breadth of the continent,
the Totem was one of seven accorded "All-American" hon
ours.
PRAISES U. B. C.
Much of the credit for producing last year's prize-winning Totem muat, of eourae, go to ita editor, Betty Quick, who Uved and
breathed nothing but Totem for
a year ln an effort to give U.B.C.
students the finest poaaible record
of their academic year.
In speaking ot the Totem, the
N.S.P.A. judge saldi "My congratulations, and my deep reepeot, to
a unlveralty which made the record whieh la here put Into print.
Sometime, I earnestly hope, I ahall
vlalt the campua, aee for myself."
The Totem flrat graduated from
tlie class of being nothing more
than a "group of claaa photos" Into a lasting record of the Unlveralty year ln 1938 under the editorship of  David Crawley.
STEPS  FORWARD
In 1939, led by John Oarrett, It
took Ita Initial atop forward ln
presentation, using colour for the
flrat time.
The foUowing year, Editor Oa-
borne Durkin produced auch a
fine Totem that the N.S.P.A. a-
warded it 'Tlrst Class Honoura",
the first international recognition
that a U.B.C. Totem had ever received.
Last year, with this as IncenUve,
Editor Quick moulded the Totem
Into on* of the beet on the North
American continent—no Idle feat,
since the onua of the war, and
compulsory mlUtary training ajet-
ed as distinct handlcape U* pubtt-
cation.
Along vHth Editor Quick muat
stand thoae other membera of the
1941 staff who deserve high praiae
for collaboration on such a magnificent triumph; Buatneaa Manager Tommy Meredith (now at

• DESPITE SOARING wartime prices, the 1942
Totem will sell for the same
price as in previous years:
$3.00
Engraving and cover costs
have risen 10 percent, printing charges are up five percent, and there is a general
increase all along the line.
"Because we are keeping the
price down, lt ls essential that
more students purchase a book,
this year", stated Editor Lionel
Suit. "The more copies we sell, the
better chance we stand of breaking  even."
^l view of the fact that most
Canadian universities sell their
yearbooks for five dollars, and
that the price of tie book is added to their Alma Mater fee, U.
B.C. students are urged to take
advantage of Dollar Down Week,
October 15-22, and secure their
copy of the 1942 Issue,

The Unemployment Bureau
The recent action of Dean Mawdsley in
investigating thoroughly the problem of
both part-time and summer employment for
women atudenta ia highly commendable.
Her efforts have at last brought thla campus to recognize the importance of assisting certain students to find work during
and after sessions.
It ls regrettable, however, that a muoh
less positive attitude ls being assumed by
the authorities toward the subject of male
employment. We all know that a so-oalled
"Employment Bureau" does exist oa the
oampus, but it was only alter a Ubyssey
reporter was sent to got a story concerning
this Bureau that we found there was no
story.
There wero also no proud faote and
figures pertaining to employment, hor waa
there any attempt made to justify this lack
of Interest in so necessary a part of student
welfare. Apparently, little or no attempt is
mad* to contact down-town employers and
to familiarise them with the desire oi many
studenta for extra-curricular work.
Admittedly and unabashed then, U.B.C.
surely straggles behind a great number of
other North Ameroian universities.  Upon
examining certain facts of syllabus, it waa
found that such colleges as the University
of Washington, Oregon, Cornell, California,
Harvard, Columbia, and various others
have extremely well advanced methods of
employment acquisition.
The following are but a few examples.
The University of Washington states that
it plaoes most of its women applicants ln
jobs. Harvard publishes a detailed booklet
whloh deals with the problems of an average university budget.
California keeps records of annual and
summertime employers, and Indiana,
through the National Youth Administration
Aot, distributes part-time jobs right on the
oampus.
While these progressive organizations
will not guarantee appointments to own and
women students, they are, nevertheless, aotlve in their work, striving continually to
help all deserving applicants.
Let us therefore oall for a moro vigorous polloy, on the part of tho proper authorities, in finding for those men who require
it, the means to a swifter and easier passage through this university

Congratulations, Totem!
Congratulations to the staff of the 1941
Totem! Under the guidance of petite editor
Betty Quick, they produoed a year book of
exceptional merit and have brought international recognition to U.B.C.
It Is pleasant for them to bask in the
sunshine reflecting from the Ail-American
Award Certificate whloh they have reoeived.
It is also satisfying for them to hear the
acclaims of fellow-students who rejoice with
them in their success. Last year they climaxed the steady advancement whloh Totem
workers have made for over twenty years.
But these people who regard the Totem
as their baby, who begin planning its pages
before the term begins, toll long hours taking pictures and composing forms, and then
survey  the  finished   product   with   critical
eye, are never satisfied, lite year-book
germ seems to get into their blood.
Already they have been industriously
planning to make the 1942 Totem a book
which will surpass the AU-Amerlcan annual
of 1941. This despite the obstacles of rising
prices and shortage of materials caused by
the war.
Lionel Salt, editor of the Totem this
term, realizes the task In front of him and
his staff. But at present his staff is ln a
very embryonic state. In faot, he is almost
alone in that resplendent Totem office.
Therefore, an offer goes out to all students who are interested ln working on the
year-book which is destined to uphold the
AU-Amerlcan standing it has attained. It
is an offer to come to the Publications Board
office and join the Totem staff.

• SURE WAS FUN at the Mixer
on Saturday nite. Josle waa going to vlalt aome cousins ln the
country for the week-end, ao I
took a beautiful little freshette.
Josie picked her out for me, and
I didn't expect auch a hum-dlnger
—Wow—ehe'a a darn good dancer
too — ahe was wearing a pair of
ahoaa from Rae-son's, 608 Oranvllle St., ao maybe that'a why aha
danced ao well. Raa'a Clever shoes
really do thlnga for a girl'a fact,
both aport and dressy shoes. By-
the-way what attraction has tho
AMA. office got for council prea-
idente during dances? It couldnt
bs that tho mualo sounds bettor
there.eould It? Bounded alright
to mo on tha dance floor. Raa'a
Clever ahoas havo everything —
atyle, comfort, low price, snd
wearabillty.
• ME'N JOSIB WENT to th* Mus.
Soc. Formal last Inursday, so
Jests got s new formal dross, from
the Ross Marie Dreaa Shoppo,
HSS Wast 41st Ave. It's ens of
those tartan skirted droasM thst
thst ar* so popular this y*ar, and
has a black velvet bodice, and
thr**-quarter alcevee. Joai* tell*
tarn that all th* evening draa***
hav*  sleevss  of  som*  aort  this
year.
She reads all that faahlon mega-
sin* stuff so I gueaa ah* knows.
Speaking of th* Mus. Soc. formal,
1 got a not* In th* mall boot telling me that on* of th* Mus. Soc-
cereaaaa, a brunette, went to th*
danc* with on* Anglican th*olog
and went horn* with another. Th*
note waa signed "Love and Stuff."

• AN      EX - PARLIAMENTARY
Forum Prealdent haa divulged
that there ia a new love In hla Hi*.
It's a Pub girl, but Ita a eecret
who,  he  juat  wouldn't  talk.
That freahette I waa tailing you
about waa wearing on* of those
cloae fitting dresses tho other
night, and ahe tells me that ahe
wean a new kind of slip under it
so that it won't ahow wrinkles
through. It'a got an elastic back,
so lt fits real close, and ahe gets
them at B. M. Clarke's, 3317 Oranville St. The Satin ones are 13.00
and come ln white, and the crepe
onea aro only 82.00 and come In
white, tearose and black. They
have other slips at various prices,
too.
• I FINALLY PERSUADED the
parents to go with me to see
some of the men's wear at George
Straith's Ltd., 903 Georgia St. Pa
and Ma were really thrilled with
the loose fitting sport jackets and
the cashmere and Shetland sweaters. Pa's just come back from the
cast, and says that they're just
like what all the university guys
wear back there, so he got me a
new jacket and I wore it to the
Mixer. Gee, Josle was mad that
she couldn't go with me. She said
I actually looked handsome In it.
The Mus. Soc. seems to have been
making news — when the social
coi.vei.or got up lo say what to
wear at the formal she told tho
meeting that the girls were to
came formal, and the men to wear
evening clothes if they had any,
but otherwise they need not dress.
I guess it was alright tho', 'cos
everyone had their clothes on
when I saw them.

By PIERRE BERTON
Newa aaapad out from th* Impkt*
laet weak that certain "key m*n'
at U.B.C. war* in future to b*
paid for tholr services to th* Alma Mater.
Backed by an Inaccurate editorial ln the Ubyaaey paaaad by th*
Alma Mater Society in full aeaalon,
thia action haa brought grave
frowns to th* faces of thos* on
th* Out-id*.
Last spring when th* matter waa
brought up (In th* preaence of a
quorum—Ubyaaey to th* contrary)
It was tabled until Fall because
th* majority of atudenta than
war* NOT ln favor of th* move.
Added Incentive?
Personally I don't believe any
atudent executive should be paid
far service* rendered to hla Alma
Mater any more than I believa
he ahould be paid for attending
lecturea.
To dangle the prize of free tuition In the faces of studenta aa an
incentive to editing a newspaper
or serving on student council, is
to take away all the spirit of free
and voluntary enterprise that ha.
made U. B. C. great during her
growing   years.
Student executive work, or atudent journalistic work la as much
of an education as any lecture
course given on the campus. Yo i
get out of It what you put Into It.
Students should pay for the privilege of working for the University — not get paid for It.
That Is the moral aspect of tha
case. There ls another aspect as
well. .    fj^
The Alma Mater Society has set
a dangerous precedent as the experience of other Universities will
show. There are oHher students besides the council president and
treasurer and Ubyssey editor who
also work hard in student activities.
Snowball
In years to come there are going
to be more requests for payment
of fees, more resolutions brought
up on the floor of an Almo Mater
meeting. Club presidents and
treasurers, business managers,
publicity chairmen, senior Ubyssey editors all work hard in campus  activities.
Other Universities who pay
council president, treasurer and
student editor, also find It necessary to pay a host of smaller salaries.  The  snowball  can roll.
It will be interesting to watch
the progress of next spring's election and see how the added incentive of free tuition fees affect-
the  progress  of  student  politics.

• THE PING PONG schedule,
aided and abetted by the advice to beginners appearing on
this page, started yesterday noon
when Education played Commerce.
The Badminton playoffs also began Tuesday when First Year
Arts beat Second Year Arts in
three  sets.
Nancy Fleck and Joan Frost of
first year, June Lake and Nancy
Greer of second year, wero the
teams on which the result depended. The first set second year
won 15-6, and ln the second the
first year team surprised everyone by winning 15-3. At the beginning of the third set. both
teams showed signs of fatigue,
although the second year toam
didn't have the stamina that
first   year   possessed.
Although loth Fleck and Frost
were slightly weak on short shots,
both were good in individual play,
with Nancy Flock taking the honours; for tho host form. June Luke,
well known tennis, player, seemed lacking in her usual vitality,
hut recovered surprisingly toward
the  end   and  it was a   close   finish,
Fleck's smashing drives saved
tlio, day for first year who won
the   game   13-8.
Tho SophotiL.ro players were
Marguerite Neil. Mary Alice Wood.
June Lake. Paulino Green. Allison Mi'Eiiin, and Dorothy Ilebb.
The Freshette c;roup included

Holiday
• WITH THE GRIZZLY
game definitely set for
Homecoming weekend, the
Thunderbird Canadian football team staged their first
earnest workout on Monday
in a practice game.
Despite driving rain, the holiday practice had a good turnout
and two teams were picked at
random for a three-quarters ot
an hour practice game with Johnny Farina playing quarterback for
one team and Austin Frith ditto
for the other.
In the practice game, duitng
which scores were made by flashy
playing on the part of Messrs.
Frith and Ray Gorman, Gus Carmlchael suffered a badly cut eye
and two chipped teeth. Hans
Swinton also shows signs of the
battle    (unconfirmed).
Starring ln the backfleld wero
Johnny Farina, Bud Spiers, and
Ray Gorman. Currle fought a good
battle at centre, and Carmlchael
and McGhee were outstanding In
the   guard   positions.
There will be a practice every
night    this   week.

For  Men   Only
BY HARRY FRANKLIN
• THE "HAYSEED BOYS", alias
Agriculture,   sneezed   a   double
year, win over Science '44 in Intramural volleyball play last Friday
In Gymnasium. The scores were
21-12,   21-8.
While their brudder "reds" were
losing their respective "shirts",
Science '45 likewise felt the axe
from  Arts '44, 8-15,  12-15.
In the initial fray Jim Scott for
the Engineers played all over tho
floor, whilst his adversary Sandy
Hay, "Seed" star, kept chopping
'em down for Aggies.
Thus, the victors Agriculture and
Arts '44 square off in the second
round championship flight. The
two Science squads hook up in
consolation   battle.
Today at noon on the maplewood, Arts '42 meet tholr younger
kind Aits '45 in the opener. All
team reps should watch the gym
bulletin board for the other game,
according to Van Vllet, Director
in  chargo  of  Intramurals.
• PERHAPS    the    readers    have
been   reading  much  ado   about
military training and sports et-
cetra and so on, but if you've not
tired of the subject, here's a new
angle.
Robert W. Edwards, Assistant
Direct, r of Athletics at University of Illinois is of tho opinion that
"if we are to improve the nation's
de.e.it-e of physical fitness during
those times, wo must turn to more
vigorous type of activity—weight
lifting,   for   instance."
Mr. Edwards presented the startling fact that 50'". of army volun-
tci":: and 90'; of air corps applicants in tho United States forces
wero rejected because of physical
unfitness.
'• MEN'S INTRAMURALS, dormant since 1939-40, opened
up again for business last Friday noon when energetic
males ripped off the lid with volleyball (as above) in the
Gym and English rugby-In the stadium. While the Aggies
and Arts '44 were clashing with Science '44 and Science '45
at the net game indoors, the Frosh fifteen was trouncing
Aggies at rugby in the rain. All this went on as M. L. Van
Vliet, rabid proponent of inter-class sport, stood happily on
the sidelines.
Men's Intramurals
RESULTS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10:—
Volleyball:—
Aggies beat Sc. '44 — 21-12, 21-8
Arts '44 beat Sc. '45 — 15-8, 15-12
English Rugby:—
Frosh 9 — Aggies 0.
NEXT GAME
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15:—
Volleyball:—
Arts '42 vs. Arts '45.
Them's hard words stranger, but
doggone it, their true.
Thus, the question arises, assuming that a comparable figure
would refer to Canada, what can
the  university do about it?
Our answer Is that U.B.C. can
and Is offering physical classes to
Improve our military efficiency.
For men only, among other things,
weight  lifting  is offered.
To quote Mr. Edwards again,
"Weight lifting Increases the individual's muscle tone, develops
body resistance, and gives one an
organic vigour that he Is unlikely
to  possess  otherwise."
If you doubt this, try it sometime.   And  we  do   mean   "try  it."
Underneath our football stands
Varsity behemoths may vvork out
with the barbell equipment at all
houra. Student Instructors ore always willing to demonstrate weight
lifting  technique.
Two arm curl, deep knee bend,
prono press and abdominal raise
aro suggested exercises for all-
round development, the Director
stated.
In the stadium gym, there are
weights ranging from 2'/a to 50
pounds', heavy and not-so-heavy
bars, and all necessary auxiliary
equipment. All, like the highway
pedestrian,   enjoy   a   good   lift.
It might be a good way in
which to reduce that bulging waist
line. You know fellows, or is that
too   personal?

League Ruling
Helps Varsity
Soccer Team
e A DISTINCT HELP to
the Varsity Soccer team
is a new ruling, passed at a
Wednesday League executive meeting held last Friday
night, that states that no
Coast League players may
be used by the Wednesday
loop squads  this  year.
Last season the midweek outfits wero allowed to use three
roundballers from the senior
leagxie. This was of use to all the
teams but tho Blue and Gold.
Other members of the weekday
league will bo Pro-Roes, Woodwards, and City Police. First
games will be played a week Wednesday,   October   22.
Coach Charlie Hitchings has
called a Thunderbird soccer practice for 3.15 today on tho upper
playing fiold. In case of rain, a
meeting will be held In tho stadium.
SKI CLUB—At a recent meeting of
tlie Varsity Ski Club the following executive was elected: President: lii'tiio Mason, Vice-President, Charles Woodward; Sec-
relarv, Stanley Burke; Treasurer,   Doug  Taylor.
INTERNATIONAL    RELATIONS
CLUH—-"The Fine Art of Propaganda" will be the topic delivered
by Dr. D. H. Russell of the Department of Education at the Initial meeting of the club, to be held
at the home of Professor F. H.
Soward. 1820 Allison Road at K
o'clock tonight. Upperclassmen are
invited.
9 I SUPPOSE that my career In
sport could really be said to have
started when my Auntie Ether
gave me a pair of running shoes
for   my   twenty-first  birthday.
Everyone agreed that thla was
an unusual display of affection on
the part of Auntie Ether, who
had never before given me anything, except the mumps when I
was six. Nevertheless, I recognized the shoe* Immediately aa that
type which Woodward'* throws
ln free with the purohaae of a
pall of lard, and I made repeated
attempts to dispose of them without a trace, only to be foiled by
fate   and   a   persistent   plumber.
Fearing that we might atlll be
excluded from Auntie Ether'a will,
th* family severely criticised thia
abortive attempt to liquidate her
gift, urging m* to wear the ghastly  running  shoes.
"Run around," aald the family,
"or else."
In a apecial meeting, lt was deolded that it would be necessary
to have the tread worn off th*
shoes before New Year's day,
when Auntie would be coming
around to tak* back her Christmas  card.
"You might try playing Badminton," auggeated someone.
"What's badminton?" I snapped
suspiciously.
"It's a sort of Indoor aport, \
beUeve."
"Like post-office?" I demanded.
"Or do I have to use both lungs?"
A  guilty  silence settled  on th*
group.  I looked wildly  from face
to face, blanching at what I «aw
written   there.
DAWNING
"You don't mean," I -choked,
"you don't mean it'a exercise?"
Some bowed their heads silently, while othera turned away
shame-faced. For a minute th*
world seemed to spin around eras-
liy, but I somehow managed to
get a grip on myself.
"IU do lt," I whispered, blowing
my nose sibllantly.
"I'll do lt for the family!"
The next evening I was formally dressed for the sacrifice. Grandpa had disinterred a mouldy pair
of long, khaki shorts with the legend "Shuswap Scouts, Troop 5"
blazoned across the shank, and
these hung limply to below the
knees. Another member furnished the raquet, while a third supplied the strings.
"Shouldn't he take a shuttle?"
someone   asked.
"Naw. They'll give him the bird
as soon  as  he starts playing."
I shook hands all around, slipping an envelope into Grandpa's
hand, in case I should fall to come
back, and a few minutes later was
slinking  into the  gymnasium.
There I was somewhat startled
to see a large number of larger
women lying on their backs with
their feet in the air. It looked like
the symptons of mass ptomaine
poisoning, but, supposing it to be
part of the game of badminton,
I assumed the proper position and
started   kicking   phlegmatlcally.
Then,i abruptly, a behemoth off
to starboard shrieked, and reared
up on her haunches, pointing a
fat forefinger at me. Immediately
the rest heaved off the floor with
shrill cries, huddling together and
staring at me.
YOU NEXT
"Well, I guess I'm 'if!" I laughed  nervously.
At this, a beefy amazon, evidently onm ot the ringleaders, stepped up to me, glaring belligerently.
"Are you a woman?" she snarled.
"Don't let these aborts fool you,
madam," I aaid stiffly. "I ahar*
regularly."
"Then how dare you sneak in
with us girls' Pro-Rec class?" ahe
shouted, as the others growled
ominously.
"I came to play badminton," I
protested.
"The badminton club met last
night," she returned hotly. "HUnk
again,  brother!"
They were closing ln on me now,
like a herd of elephant* who all
have their eye on the aame young
sapling, so that I had a sudden
desire to travel. In fact, "Shuswap
Scouts, Troop 5" rapidly becam*
an illegible blur as I aped out ot
range of their hoarse crlea.
That   evening ended my  career
. ln aport. Auntie Ether  died soon
after, leaving everything to a pet
turtle.
We burled the running shoe*
with her.
