Hungarian students demonstrating for freedom.
UBC To  Honor  Hungarians
Today  In  Armoury Ceremony
An estimated 2,000 students will silently gather in UBC's
cavernous Armoury today at noon, and pay solemn tribute to
a brave band of students across the world who fought and died
in the cause of freedom.
UBC students will honour the courageous efforts of the
students of Hungary to bring freedom to their troubled land
in a brief, simple ceremony co-sponsored by the Alma Mater
Society, the Faculty Association, and the World University
To provide tangible evidence of their sympathy, students
attending the ceremony will be asked to contribute to a scholarship fund to bring three refugee Hungarian students to UBC
next year.
In addition, a subscription will be taken among all members of the faculty, to provide additional monies for the WUSC-
handled scholarship undertaking.
The Hungarian national march will be played at the ceremony, and the red, green and black flag of free Hungary will
be unveiled.
Cost of bringing the three Hungarian students to UBC
is in excess of $2,000, WUSC officials estimate.
The-Canadian Ensign at the end of the Main Mall will be
lowered to half-mast all day.
Speakers in the ceremony will include: Rev. Frederick
Metzger, Minister of the Hungarian Presbyterian Church in
Vancouver, who will offer a prayer from UBC for his countrymen; Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew; Hungarian student Charles
Hamori; Dr. Mikolas Udvardi, UBC Zoology Professor, and
Chairman of the Hungarian Relief Committee in Vancouver;
WUSC representative Art Hughes, who will deliver the appeal
for student donations.
The meeting will be chaired by AMS Co-ordinator Ben

Protest Hungarian  Action

ar* not alon* in their tupport
of th* Hungarian r*b*ls.
In nearly every free country of th* world, students
have expressed their shock and
sympathy in various ways).
Vienna. In the course of the
blood-shedding suppression of
the Hungarian people's rebellion, thousands of Hungarian
students have fled seeking asylum in Austria, Alone over a
half of the students at the Agricultural and Mining College
of Odenburg (Sopron) were
among those who fled. The National Union of Students of
Austria immediately took measures for comprehensive aid
and arranged for "Hungarian
Departments" at all universities to help refugees in every
possible way. A considerable
number of sponsorships for
Hungarian students was accepted. At the University of Graz,
a large demonstration of solidarity took place and was fol
lowed by a parade in silence
through the city.
Brussells. "J.OOO Belgian students attempted to storm the
Soviet Embassy in Brussells
and used pavement stones as
missiles. During clashes with
the police, approximately 50
students were injured. The students and professors of the
University of Louvain organized a comprehensive collection of gifts for the Hungarian
population. Within the course
of one day, they raised 67,000
francs and 200,000 cigarettes.
Furthermore, 2,600 students
pledged themselves to make
blood plasma donations for the
Luxembourg. While shouting
'"Long live Hungary" and
"Down with the Soviets" approximately 300 students
stormed the Soviet Embassy,
dragged out the entire furnishings, and set them on fire.
The dinner table just arranged
for in commemoration of the
Soviet October Revolution was
converted into a heap of ruins
by the irate students.
Bonn. The National Union
of German Students has called for a big action of aid in
favour of Hungarian students.
A number of universities has
already placed cost-free accommodations at the disposal of
refugee Hungarian students.
The regional VDS branch in
Berlin accepted the sponsorship of 200 Hungarian students
so that they may be able to
continue their education in Berlin. In telegrams to the International Union of Students and
the Soviet Youth Union, the
VDS expressed its shock over
the events in Hungary and
simultaneously declared its disruption of all preparations for
an opening of relations witli

A Flop, Says Ronimois
Ivan And Us
Ever since the Cold War began we've never been allowed to forget what a tough time the average Russian has,
and how much better off we are by comparison.
Those "Grin And Bear It" cartoons mat show Ivan dressed in rags, apparently subsisting on nothing but black bread
and hero medals, approximate the popular North American
conception of the average Russian's economic condition.
And so it comes as a stunning revelation to learn that
within a decade, Ivan will be living as high off the hoy a.s we
If this state of affairs comes to pass—and the bcsl authorities think it will—we will have to do some hard thinking
about the real advantages of our way of life. For in prosperous North America, we have slipped into the complacent attitude that our way is best simply because we have easy
access to television sets and refrigerators and new Chevro-
As long as we are sure Russia is Lower Slobbovia, it
is easy to believe that America is Paradise with power steering, and that Free Enterprise made it thus.
But when we face the fact that Russia will soon be as
prosperous as we are (TV in every home, plenty to eat and
drink, a fine vacation every year) we will have to jettison
a number of comfortable economic truisms of ours, and return to some of those fundamentals that prosperity seems
to have obscured.
We must relearn, apparently, that man does not live by
bread alone; and so we must again learn to prize our freedom,
not our prosperity, above all things. For freedom is what we
have, and what Russia, under Communism can never have;
and all the overfilled quotas in the world cannot alter this
Also we must see to it that our society is spiritually rich,
not just gadget rich. With the 30-hour week on its way, the
question "What are we going to do with all our leisure?"
looms larger and larger. We've got to learn to use this leisure
to create a meaningful society which maintains a reference
beyond itself.
For without this larger frame of reference, no society can
endure. Unless we care to preserve and enlarge this vital
quality in our society we'd better fill the libraries with engineering textbooks, replace the cathedrals with gas stations, and settle down to a wonderfully prosperous, utterly
circular existence.
They're Still Idiots
Mr. Mel Smith, the campus apostle of Social Credit,
makes a manful attempt on this page to rebut the Ubyssey
well-founded observation that the Social Credit Party is full
of idots. To bolster his case, he cites, almost in toto, the
Socred League resolution that prompted our criticism.
It's true, as Mr. Smith points out, that wording of the
resolution doesn't sound actually loony. And it is very probably true that the textbook passages cited are oversimplified,
misleading and inaccurate.
But we suggest it is more than mere coincidence that
prompted a political convention to concern itself with, of all
things, kiddie's textbooks dealing with, of all things, banking.
Accuracy in textbooks is all very well: but when a fun-
nv-money political par.y tries to revise economic textbooks
Soviet Production:
Failure Or A Success?
(Editor's Not*:—Here's one expert that doesn't believe Soviet
production will ever outstrip
North American production; in
t*rms of production. Russia's
planned economy" is a dismissal failur* says th* writer, who
is head of UBC's Department of
Slavonic Studies).
While Mr. Stalin was alive
we were frequently told that
the Soviet Union is catching up
with our level of production.
This view emanated from the
Kremlin, and whether presented by Soviet writers or our own
—conscious or unconscious—
"transmission belts" of Soviet
ideas, left som of us looking
askance at our own capacity to
compete with these alleged
strides in the East.
Recent visitors to Russia
have reported on Soviet economic situation in a more realistic manner. To complete their
story and to enable the reader
to find his own answer to the
question whether or not Soviet
production presents us with a
serious challenge, here are
sonic figures and observations
on Soviet economy. It should
be kept in mind that they refer to a territory and a population figure approximately
eqiiqal with the North American continnent.
The number of personal cars
in operation in 1953: SU 225,
000; N.Am. 49.5 million. The
Soviets had 220 times less cars
on their roads than this continent. There were more cars stolen in the US (226,500 in 1953,
of which 94 percent were later
recovered) than are operated
on Russian roads.
The number of persons per
one car: SU 74-80; US 2, 8;
Canada 4, 3 and Mexico 60 (all
in 1953). The Soviet figure is
from 2 to 3 times below the
average for the entire world
(one car per 29 persons) including China and India where cars
are not numerous. Even Cuba,
Panama, Barbados    and    some
Central American republics
had more cars in relation to
their populations than the Soviet Union.
The annual output of all motor vehicles in 1953; SU 477,-
000; US 7.3 millions and Canada 481,000. The number of
vehicles produced in the Soviet
Union is 15 times less than the
output of this continent. By
1960, the Soviets will be turning out still only 640,000 vehicles, of which only approximately 64,000 will be personal
The overall length of the surfaced rural highways: SU appr.
100.000 miles (including the
post-war construction); US 1.7
million miles, a difference of
17 times.
Highways carry but 3 per
cent of all freight in the Soviet
Union (1959) as against 30 per
cent in the US (1953).
The length of railway lines:
SU approximately 70,000 miles
(including the recently constructed Southern Trans-Siberian railroad): US 388,000 track
miles and Canada 42.000 track
miles (1943).
Crude oil production in 1953:
SU 49 million ton (plan figure
ior 1960 is 60 mil.ton); US output was 323 million ton. The
Soviet Union produces but 15
per cent of the American oil
output. Moreover, the United
States have been outproducing
the Soviet Union in this important fields by leaps and bounds:
if Russia lagged behind the US
in 1910-13 by a mere 21 million tons, she is now lagging
behind by an amount 13 times
as big; i.e. 274 million tons.
Electric power output in
1954: SU 148 billion kwh; US
544 billion kwh. Here too the
gap between the Soviet and the
American outputs has increased. When Soviet Union was
lagging in 1940 by 131 kwh,
she had by 1954 fallen back
and the gap had increased to an
enormous figure of 396 billion
kwh; (i.e. three times).
These figures explain Mr.
Malenkov's efforts to build
powerful hydro electric power
stations, such as Bratsk in
Eastern Siberia and various
others. Still, even this effort
will raise the Soviet electric
power output only to the halfway mark compared with that
of the present output in the US.
TWO—Soviet Producetaion __
The planned output of steel
in 1960: SU 60 million tons; US
117 million tons. Although Mr.
Stalin was able to divert a very
considerable part of the entire
Soviet steel output to military
use, neither he nor Mr. Khrus-
hev have been able to close the
gap between the Soviet and the
American steel output (51 million tons in 1928 and 57 million
tons in 1960).
According to a recent article
in Pravda, average output per
men in Soviet industry is between 2 and 3 times below
that in the US industry.
During the planning period
(1928-1950), the space of living
accommodation available for
one person in Soviet cities has
declined from 6 square metres
to a bare 4 square metres. That
means each room is shared, on
the average, by 3 to 4 persons.
In the US, only 6 per cent of
all occupied buildings (42 million units) had in 1950 more
than 1 person per room.
Consumer goods in Soviet
area arc scarce and the Governments are taxing away as much
as 60-65 per cent of the meagre
money income of their citizens,
mainly through indirect taxation.
Do these facts spell as a success for the Soviet type of industrialization?
The recent events in Eastern
Europe show that at least the
people of the East European
countries do not consider Soviet
economic experiment a success
at all.
'Socred Idiot Fringe
Non - Existant': — Smith
.in the interests of accuracy, it's only a short
revision in the interests of parly  policy.
Our statement ,-t.ll -ta;.o~.
In a recent Editorial, the
Ubyssey accuses the B.C. Social
Credit Convention of passing a
resolution for the purpose of altering to conform with "the
party line" certain textbooks
on Economics which are vised
in our schools. Quoting from
thc editorial: "What the resolution means to say is that textbooks do not convey a picture
of banking practises as interpreted by Social Credit." The
editorial stales further, "And
so when the party comes into
power the textbooks must he
brought in line witli party doctrine."
It is most obvious to anyone
who has read tho .resolution
thai the above slaleaii n.ts wore
written by one v iio v. as completely ignorant of tin text
and the purposes of the resolution.
I would now like to quote
fr'irn 11.c resolution in Maim; detail:
"Whereas certain statements
made in out school text books
are misleading as follows:—
(1) "... banks accept savings deposits for safekeeping
and guarantee to return equivalent amounts plus interest at
the agreed rates, and use these
funds from which to make loans
to individuals and business
firms . . ."
1(C "You have already noted
that banks make loans from
funds at their disposal ..."
(2A) "... More recently
the privilege of obtaining gold
for Canadian bank notes has
been withdrawn, though the
Bank of Canada still holds
large sums in gold as security
for it's notes ..."
Whereas statements (IA) and
(1C) are proven false by:
"The Bank cannot, fo course,
loan the money of their creditors. What the depositors do
with these savings is something
quite beyond the control of the
Graham Towers before Banking and Commerce Committee,
Hansard, 1939. p. 455; "It is
a mistake to suppose that bank,
credit is created to any important extent by the payment
of money into the Banks."
"The sole use of a gold reserve is to enable a country
to meet the deficits in its international balance of payments."
McMillan Report, p. 112.
. Therefore be it resolved that
. . . immediate steps' be taken
lo correct these inaccuracies."
In all seriousness, where is
the "idiot fringe" in this resolution" More important, where
is the "party line?" As anyone who has taken Money and
Banking 300 at this University knows, the professors must
labour conlinuously to correct
misconceptions which students
have received hi high school
that laatihs loan their deposits,

We arose fairly early last
Saturday morning, and made our
unbalanced way into the bathroom to see what bromides were
available to paste our head back
on our shoulders. The evening
before had been what dying Colonial Officers refer to as a
Rough Show, and as we had
climbed into bed our head had
rolled  under the dresser.
As we were dusting it off
prepartory to laying it once more
athwart our eroded esophagus,
we noted with considerable surprise, an irregular purple bruise
under its right eye. Now this happened to be our best head, and
we had grown fond of it, so
it was with all the sterness that

a fashion, yet defend her ver-1

Very well: single-handedly, the

J/es With Britain
Compared To Clans
"The British Commonwealth is like a Scottish clan, there
are no legal ties but there is a stronger sense of kinship," Lord
Dundee told his UBC audience Monday.
The Rt. Hon. Earl of Dundee
Enjoy a pipe with

was speaking to students on
"Scotland's place in the Commonwealth." He went on to elaborate on his theme of Commonwealth kinship of "equal countries having one chief."
"Scotland is the smallest Commonwealth country," he said,
"but it is quality not quantity
that counts in exports."
Scotland's chief export i.s her
people," Lord Dundee declared.
He had heard more Gaelic spoken in Canada than in the Highlands,  he said.
Lord Dundee went on to trace
Scotland's history and independence from England. He told his
audience of St. Adrews House in
Edinbourough which now houses
seven Civil Service Departments
to handle Scottish affairs, administered independently of
Scotland has 72 members of
the British House of Commons

"Scottish-English union is an
equal one between two partners," !
he said. "Scotland can never be j
regarded as just a province of\
England." :
Lord  Dundee himself sits in ]
the British House of Lords. His
claim to the title, which had been '
vacant    since    the    seventeenth
century,  was  recognized  a  few
years ago.
Previously Lord Dundee had
sat in the House of Commons as
a Unionist (Conservative) M.P.
for Western Renfrew which he
represented for fourteen years.
He was Under-Secretary of State
at the Scotlish of ice before the
war, resigning to serve as a Captain in the Black Watch.
He returned to his job in
1941 al the request of Winston
Churchill and the following year
went with a Parliamentary mission to China where the nationalists and Communists were
fighting "a toy war."
"The West missed her chance
there, ' Lord Dundee said in an
interview. "Russia supplied the
Chinese Communists with heavy
artillery and tanks. The West
gave the nationalists medical
supplies and sympathy."
"The result." said Earl Dundee, "was that a whole lot of
nationalists switched sides and

moving welcome here in the
villages and towns of Asiatic
Turkey, and even a rudimentary knowledge of Turkey
makes the experience doubly
memorable. Most of my vacations were spent roaming
throughout the country, visiting various projects, factories,
etc., and observing the rural
aspects of the social revolution. Everywhere one goes the
locals are delighted to answer
all questions, arrange visits to
all local items of interest with
exhausting thoroughness, and
ply one with endless cups of
Turkish coffee. (One soon concludes  it's habit forming).

are stone deaf. The feature performer will be principal oboist,
Roland Dufrane, who, despite
the fact he has never appeared
with Ed Sullivan, blows a very

OTTAWA, (BUP). — University leaders headed home today
after attending one of thc most
historic and financially profitable university conferences
ever held in Canada.
During the three-day national conference of Canadian
universities to deal with "Canada's crisis in higher education," Prime Minister Louis St.
Laurent announced the Government's plan to double direct
federal grants to universities to
Slti million a year and earmark
$50 million to help university
projects in the next 10 years,
Mr. St. Laurent also announced to the 125 delegates
attending the conference a proposal to establish a Canada
Council on the Arts Endowed
with $50 million to help the
arts, social scieVices and the
humanities in Canada.
Besides     the     government's
financial promises, the university heads were told by representatives of industry and
labor that financial rupport
also would be forthcoming
from them.
Delegates al the conference
took a soul-searching look at
the state of the nation's universities and colleges. They concluded that a state of emergency existed on campuses
across Canada.
In an end-of-conference resolution, the delegates stated:
"It is our urgent duty to warn
the people of Canada that the
problem of the universities has
become an emergency of grave
concern, to the certain disadvantage of our progress and
standing as a nation, and can
only be solved by the energetic
and immediate assistance and
co-operation of all governments
in Canada, of business and in
dustry and of private benefactor*."
■ One university head after
another pointed out to the conference that the next,ten years
would bring terrific pressures
to bear on university facilities.
They maintained that the millions of Canadian students seeking higher education in the future would not be given proper
training unless immediate steps
were taken.
They called for better trained and higher paid teaching
staffs, and more university
buildings and facilities of all
The conference resolved that
this should be accomplished by
revising federal and provincial
income and succession taxes
"to provide more inducement
to citizens, business and indus
try," to give more for higher
They passed another resolution urging that the Central
Mortgage and Housing Corporation "make loans on most favorable terms for residence construction for students and staff
on a self-liquidating basis."
To ease some of the teaching
pressure on universities, the
conference passed another resolution calling on provincial
governments to establish "more
institutions of technology comparable to the Ryerson Institute of Technology (at Toronto)
and other institutions for educational and technical training
at a non-university level."
Sidelights of the conference
was the suggestion by three
Quebec university leaders that
Quebec should accept federal

Q. What is Canadian Chemical?
A. A young, progressive and fast-growing Canadian
company. Its $75,000,000 plant on a 430 acre site
at Edmonton, Alberta, consists of 3 plants — a
petrochemical unit, a cellulose acetate manufacturing
unit, and a filament yarn plant. It has its own power
,plant and water treating facilities to supply steam,
electricity, water and compressed air. Thc Company
also has technical facilities necessary to provide for
control o[' the quality of its products and for the
development of new processes and products.
Q. What do we make at Edmonton?
A. Canadian Chemical's three integrated plants at
Edmonton use the products of Canada's forests and
vast oil fields . . . producing for world markets high-
quality supplies of ORGANIC CHEMICALS, CillULOSI
O. What are the job opportunities?
A. Our engineering department is one of the largest
and most divcrsitied in Canada, We have technical
and professional services... extensive laboratory
facilities for operational quality control ol' our many
products ... for developing and piloting new products
and processes. We operate our own power plant and
water treating facilities.
Q. What would I be doing?
A. As one of our electrical engineering group, you
would be meeting new challenges in the development
of new automation systems... designing power
feeder systems and lighting... designing additions
and modifications to what is possibly thc most complex
system of industrial automation in Canada. Or, you
might be working with our other engineers in important tasks like these:—
• field inspection
• detailing, estimating
• process design
• engineering supervision and administration
• improving process efficiency, or increasing
Challenging job opportunities also exist for mechan-
cal engineers, chemical engineers, chemists and
engineering physics graduates — as discussed in
other ads of this series.

In an exhibition rugby match
at Victoria Saturday, UBC Chiefs .
swamped a badly outclassed Victoria College XV. 44-3. It was the
fifth consecutive win this year
lor the Varsity team.
UBC Braves meanwhile, scored their fifth straight victory,
dumping Meralomas 8-0 at Con-
naught Park. Tomahawks edged
Barbarians 14-10 at Douglas, and
Papooses defeated North Shore
12-3 at Confederation. Redskins
suffered the only loss for UBC
teams on the weekend, bowing
to Ex-Techs 12-3.
According to Albert Laithwaite, Victoria College had the
material but they didn't know
how to use it. Varsity ran up
a 25-0 lead by half nme. Mike
Chambers scored the first of a
parade of trys and Gerry Mc-
Gavin converted.
Hugh Barker then scored two
trys, and Don Shore and Ted
Hunt each scored a try. Barker
converted all four trys.
Gary Sinclair, Mike Chambers,
Jack Maxwell, Ted Hunt and
Doug Muir all scored trys in
the second half.
Derik Vallis, who missed the
trip to the "tweed-city," and Carl
Gustafson, both scored trys for j
the  Braves  against  Meralomas.
and  Mike Fox  converted once. '■
Roy Mason scored two trys
for the Tomahawks while Bruce
Hastings and Roger Kronkuist |
tallied one try apiece, Kronkuist
converting his try. Don Hill scored the lone try for Redskins.
In Papooses 12-3 defeat of
North Shore, Ted Hansen scored
two trys, Bruce Allardyce scored once, and Tom Hansen kicked
a penalty.
Jim Sets
UBC's long distance track star
Jim Moore set a course record
in the annual Royal Roads invitational cross-country race in
Victoria Saturday.
Moore took 33 seconds off the
former record set in 1953 by
completing the four and one
fifth mile course in 20:54.
Jack Burnett of UBC, winner
of last year's meet, finished second in t he field of 65.
In spite of the first and second
place finishes, UBC lost possession of the Amiral Nelles Trophy
to Victoria high school.
SCOTTISH KILTS seem to be latest fad

Mens' grasshockey action continued Saturday on the Campus
as Varsity defeated the UBC
"Bluer" 4-1.
The Varsity win was highlighted iby the (brilliant three-
goal performance of Hamish
Simpson. "Puhndit" Rai scored
the other Varsity goal.
For t he "Blues," speedy Victor Warren scored their only
goal on a breakaway. The losers
had several other scoring
chances but failed to capitalize
on them.
JV's Dump Jewellers;
Windslade Gets 34 Points
Win Again
UBC's soccer 'Birds continued
their winning ways Saturday by
downing Army and Navy 2-1 in
a game that was not as close as
the score indicates.
The game was marred slightly
by an accident early in the first
half in which Birds' fullback,
Ian Todd and A. &. N.'s centre-
forward collided in mid-air.
The centre-forward was forced
to leave the game due to a badly
cut forehead. Todd, who was
knocked colder than the proverbial mackeral, remained in the
game, but was later taken to
Wesbrook Hospital and treated
for concussion. He will probably
be released today and should be
in playing condition by Saturday.
The game was extremely fast
despite a strong cross-wind. The
Birds' first goal came with 30
minutes gone in the first half,
when shifty centre-forward Colin Arnot drew three men to him,
then slipped the ball to Ashdown, who was unmarked on the
61-yard line.
A & N tied the game early in
the second half after dominating
the first 10 minutes of play. The
goal, fired from less than six
yards out, gave goal tender Clive
Hughes no chance to save.
Birds regained command of
the game and finally went ahead
on Colin Arnot's fine goal from
a long pass by fullback Ian Todd
at the 30-minute mark. The
game ended witli the Birds
pressing heavily, but no further
scoring occurred. i
Youth and inexperience triumphed over skill Saturday
night as UBC Jayvees beat Eilers
84-71 in the league opener of the
1956-57 senior 'A' basketball
season at King Ed gym.
Ken Winslade of the Jayvees,
a former provincial high school
all-star last year, emerged as top
scorer of the evening with 34
Except for the opening minutes of the game when Jayvees
poured in five quick baskets to
give them a 10-2 lead, Eilers
were ahead on the scoreboard
for the first three quarters.
In the fourth qquarter the
Jayvees settled down to a tight
defensive game, went into the
lead from a 10 point deficit and
stretched their lead to 13 points
by the final whistle.
-Ray Goodwin and John Braith-
waite of the Eilers displayed
some dazzling footwork and
fancy ball-handling. They lead
their team's scoring with 27 and
12 points respectively.
"The Eilers are the toughest
team in the league right now,"
Mullins stated after the game,
and although he made no predictions, he went so far as to admit that "we'll be a tough team
to beat in this league."

Last week Canada's Olympic
crews departed from Vancouver
amid expectations and hope of
success in the forth-coming
Olympics. They left the country
where they became elevated and
glorified champions and journeyed to another land where
they are almost obscured, champions still, but surrounded by
more champions. It is in this obscurity that the crews will sharpen to the keenest edge of perfection.
In these few days before the
big show there will be no glory,
no praising publicity, but only
buckling pressure and hard
work. Each day the association
with thousands of competing
champions in the Olympic Village spreads another layer of
tension over the shoulders of
the burdened rowers, and each
day the lashing tongue of Frank
Read stings their backs.
Twice a day the two shells
sweep the course over and over
with relentless drive. The boys
spend hour after hour on the
course, sprinting, stopping, starting and sprinting. Off the water
they relax, study and talk with
competitors. They train and
sleep and do little else.
One week marks the opening
of the 195<5 Olympics. One short
week and our crews will be
matching strokes with the greatest rowing crews in the world.
Sport Magazine has rated our
eight-oared shell in the top three
contenders witli Australia and
the U.S. (Yale) crews to grab
the   gold   medal   honours.
To Jack Pomfret, c o Canadian
Olympic Basketball Team,
Melbourne, Australia.
Dear Jack:
I know you've been worrying
! about how your basketball team
I is going to do this year without
any really big men.
Well perhaps this will make
you feel a bit better. Last Saturday your "midgets" walloped
the Cloverdale Hillsides 62-27.
Now Cloverdale aren't quite
on a par with the competition in
the Evergreen Conference. But
they are a Senior 'A' team and
they do have a couple of fairly
big men.
In the first half they gave the
Birds quite a bit of trouble with
their superior height. After UBC
jumped into an early 7-0 lead
Cloverdale came back to go
ahead 12-11 at the eleven minute
mark. Only in the last minutes
of the half did the Birds find
their shooting eye to lead 23-16
at half time.
But in the third quarter thosel
kids of yours exploded, Jack.1
You should have seen the vvayl
they ran the Hillsides right into!
the floor and then trampled all|
over them.
They broke through1 the Clo-I
verdale defense time and again!
for driving lay-ups and close-inl
jump shots. They ball-hawkedl
like demons and even out-fought|
the taller Hillsides on the backboards. In that quarter they out«|
scored  their  opponents  26-0,
I know you can't tell too muchl
from one exhibition game, but|
the kids looked pretty good, especially in that big third-quarter.
They're  catching  on  to  that]
new double post offence of yours
quite nicely and they showed a|
good quick break.
But most of all the whole]
bunch checked and how they]
checked. Barry Drummond inl
particular, repeatedly stole thel
ball from the flabbergasted Hill-]
sides. He also racked up 12|
points, tops for both teams.
Now   I'm  not  trying   to  tell]
you the team looks like a championship contender. They're still I
pretty   green,   and   you   know
better than anyone, pretty small. I
But   though   they're   short   in
height,   they're  long   in  hustle,
and before the season's over just
might   surprise   some   of   those
big   fellows   in   the   Evergreen [
