Saturday, at least that's what
the official scorer said, but to
the near-capacity audience,
'Birds scored one of the greatest victories in their career.
Playing against the highly touted
(leagud-leading Central Washington

buckled down to hold the mighty
southern eleven to a bare 14-13 win.
Inspiration gathered from their fine
performance against Western Washington the previous weekend, 'Birds

Wildcat's team captain, on accepting the "Father Was A Fullback"
trophy from Orpheum Theatre manager Ivan Ackcry, summed up the
game when he said that the UBC team

we have had. No, the toughest." And
it sounded as if he meant every word
of it.
Pleased more than anyone else was
head coach Orville Burke, who has
built a team of higt calibre in seven
short weeks.
Considering the kind of teams that
c'amc from UBC in the last few years,
speculation was that Burke, experienced at coaching as he is, would still
have to take two years to build a
winning grid club.
After the last few stirring performances by the 'Bird crew, it looks like
Burke is the idol of every UBC football fan on and off the campus.

Apparently Canadian students are being
ileeeed by unscrupulous book publishers.
A report from tbe National Federation of
Canadian University Sludents informs us thai
Canadian list prices on text are 40 per cent
above those of American wholesalers.
It is further pointed out that no duty is
.charged on text books entering the country.
In other words the 40 per cent is pure gravy
for some  Canadian  agent  to  an  American
Booksellers are told that they must accept this price or take nothing.
An example of a way the problem could
be solved comes from Laval University where
a student owned co-operative is able to im
port its own books and thereby save an
enormous sum for its students.
It is probable that the situation is one
which ought to be investigated under the
Combines Act.
But if it is possible for student bookstores to do their importing, UBC ought to
look  into  the  matter.

Columbus' two brothers, who carried on in

The majority of the story consists of
Columbus's attempts to get Spain to give
him ships and money. The discovery and
governing of the new world, at which Columbus failed miserably, are relegated to comparatively minor positions.
For those who want their heroes without compare, cast as hard-eyed, resolute men,
Christopher Columbus will probably be rewarding. For discerning movie goers the film

One of the better crime movies is returning to the Park Theatre soon for its
second Vancouver run, As a piece of semi-
documentary filming, "Undercover Man"
starring Glen Ford is pretty hard to beat.
Although it's never mentioned, the background to the story is the arrest of Al Capone
on income tax charges. Ford, as a treasury
agent manages to break the case.
The picture captures the big city feeling
by wandering through dives and back streets
with the treasury men. One of the best performances comes from the lawyer of The
Big Fellow, as Capone is called throughout
the picture.
One of tlie final scenes in which the
lawyer decides to switch allegiance and give
evidence to convict the Big Fellow is a
masterpiece of back street filming.

"Bring Sex
Out Of Back
2 Favor Sex
Education in
High Schools
Bringing sex education out
of the washroom and into the
classroom was strongly advocated by Lome Brown, Normal School health instructor, in
a panel discussion "Sex education in the high school," presented by the Social Problems
Club in Arts  100, Friday.
Professor t. S. W. Belyea, of the
deportment" cf psychplogy, said sex
education was needed to prepare children for adult sexual relations, satisfy
adolescent curiosity, remove prejudice and fear about sex, and prepare
them  for parenthood.
The home, he said, is the most
important agency for sex education
because of the close lies between
child and parent. Parents have the
two-fold duty ol* providing information and developing proper attitudes toward sex.
Third speaker, Rev. Fr. J. B. Bennett, chaplain of the Newman Club,
was opposed to government supervised sex eucation. saying that the
Department cf Education was not an
adequate agency for this undertaking.
"Parents," he said, "have the duty
of imparting knowledge to children."
lt is undemocratic for parents to surrender rights of educating children to
the government. The mere they surrender their rights, tho mere they
arc opening the doors to more drastic
things in the future."
Health teacher, Browne said, "high
school students learn about sex in
back alleys and washrooms. "Let's
bring problems out into the open.
This would eliminate tho writing
on Vhe washroom walls."
Sex, he said, should bc taught in
mixed classes without embarrassment
to the teacher or emotional disturbance to the children. This could bc
done if the children were started
Questions of petting and kissing
should be approached scientifically,
anrl untruths and superstitions should
be eliminated.
Hi-  criticized   the  custom   of  younp;
people si'arl'.ne: social  activities  early. J
"The   automobile,"    he    said,    is    the
the g'rculcsl sex stimulating invention
ever made."

Gordon Martin Expulsion
Disaproved By IADL
The case for Gordon Martin, UBC Law graduate, who was
banned from practising law because of his connections with the
Labor-Progressive Party, is still far from being closed.
Martin was banned from practising '
last year when the Benchers, who
must pass on all applications to practise law, refused his application on-the
grounds that he was a Communist.
Martin has appealed his case, and
it will be heard by i'he Court of
Appeal when it meets in November
of this year.
In a letter circulated by the Gordon
Martin Committee, Benchers have
been asked to withdraw their objection to Martin's application, thus
causing his automatic admittance to
the bar.
According to the committee, the
world's largest organization of judges
and advocates, i'he International Association of Democratic Lawyers, has
expressed tiheir disapproval of the
Bencher's decision.
Martin Committee says, in their
letter, that "Developments such as
i'he Gordon Martin case can well be
the first step along the road travelled by Germany in the 1930's."
When he was refused admission to
the law profession Martin charged
that refusal was made because of
"political and philosophical beliefs"
and his connections with i'he LPP
and Communist parties.

probably withdraw from the Law
Faculty because "we will probably
not be permitted to practise law anyway."

League Leading Wildcats Threatened as
Thunderbirds Nearly Stage Upset Victory
Just Miss But
Hold Their Own
UBC's small but gallant foot-
ball team making up with guts
and spirit what they lacked
in physical strength, finished
just short of taking an upset
win from league leading Central Washington College Saturday, losing by 14-13 score.
Playing a hard-hitting never-say-
die kind of game that they featured
thc previous week at the Bellingham
Invasion, 'Birds made Central Washington come from behind to win the
ball game by the margin of a convert.
Doug Reid, playing another "best
gome of his career," set the pace for
Thunderbirds in the early stages of the
match with a brilliant 23-yard weaving
run, but a fumble gave the ball to
CW and the forward progress stopped.
After the first quarter was over,
'Birds, again in possession of the ball,
staged a series of first downs completed.^ through brilliant work by
George Puil and E'ig Dave MacFarlane.
Stonewall defense allowed Wildcats to toss a 35-yard pass into the end
zone to the waiting halfback for 6
good points, Convert made it 7-0
for Central Washington.
Then Thunderbirds began to work
together again. Howie Nixon started
the move goalwards by intercepting
a Washington pass.
After gaining one first down, Reid
broke through Wildcat's secondary,
reversed the field twice to run 56
yards for UBC's first score. Blocking
couldn't have been better on the
Quarterback Leo Lund kicked the
In the third quarter, Central started
living up to their press notices. Gene
Beardsley hugged the spotlight paving
the way for 3 first downs, forcing
'Birds back to their own 25-yard line.
But the line held and UBC took the
balL^L, .
Don Lord, forced to kick, pelted
the pigskin for 60 yards where it landed out of bounds, taking the pressure
off the locals.
First real break of the game for
'Birds came when George Sainas intercepted a flat lateral pass and romped 30 yards to the goal line to put
UBC ahead  for the time.
Convert   was  blocked,   leaving  the
score at 13-7 for the locals.
Couple of plays after the kickoff,
Central Washington, on a deceptive
end run, ran the ball 55 yards down
the sidelines for their second touchdown. And the convert was good to
put UBC behind by one point. That
point was the game.
Reid, running a full 39 yards down
the'* sidelines was brought clown on
the 11-yard line, but Reid was packed
off on the play.
From then on, UBC's Thunderbirds
fought their hardest, but time ran
out before they could do anything
abqut the score.

GAME-WINNING TOUCHDOWN for Central Washington College was garnered by free-running halfback Don Doran (49)
when he galloped around left end 55 yards to paydirt. On the
play pictured, however, big Dave MacFarlane stopped Doran
cold before he could do any damage.

Brave Hoopers
Out of Wraps
UBC's new Inter A basket-
ball entry .officially called
Braves, come out from under
their wraps tomorrow night
when they show for the first
time against Victoria Drive
five at the King Edward Gym
at 8:45 p.m.
With newcomer to tho coaching
staff Dick Penn guiding the fresh
squad through the season, and a vast
field of talent at his command, Braves
should end up at the top of the Inter
A setup at the end of the season.
Head basketball manager on the
campus Ole Ostrom figures that Braves
are the team to beat in local circles.
All that is needed so far is the experience of working together as a
team. Individual talent is abundant
but teamwork is necessary for any
team.   i
But in past workouts, the youngsters have shown that they will develop as the season progresses.

classic    performance    worthy    of   big
league elevens.
During' the first half, student full
backs Dave Thompson and D;;n Kenton played in the Kerrisdale half
of Ihe field, their goal only being
visited on a few spasmodic raids.
First goal honors went to Varsity's |
Osborne who scored with a header !
on a pass by Kenny Campbell. |
Varsity   were   hustling  and   forcing I
the play all  the time and  Kerrisdale
were lucky l»» keep the score low.
Ken Campbell added another goal
for the locals with a close in shot
when the rival goal was in confusion.
Centre-forward Bill Posovitch almost added the third shortly afterwards but his shot hugged the wrong
side of the goal post.
Kerrisdale retaliated and outside-
left Don Radalot scored with a scorching shot that had goal written all
over it.
When the 45-minute whistle blew,
Varsity were leading by a 2-1 margin.
Kerrisdale showed better form in
the second half but they still lacked
Varsity's polished  style.
After 10 minutes of resumed play
Ken Campbell got his second goal
and Varsity's third when the whole
forward line combine on a power
Play see-sawed back and forth and
Kerrisdale made their second score
when the Varsity half line misjudged
a ball and Don Radalet put the
leather in the net.
At Kerrisdale's goal again outside-
right Bobby Moulds drew applause
from the crowd when he dribbled
the ball past four Kerrisdale players
only to see a goalward shot sail a
foot over the crossbar.
It was Kerrisdale's play again and
Don Radalet got his hat-trick when
the Varsity goal tenders were slow
in clearing.
