SWltnmlng, grass hookey and basket-
•All vie with on* another for the ln«
terest of the athletic freshette. The
traok club will have the fU'ld to themselves nest spring.
Tennis promises to attract a large
number of supporter* for our own
court* situated In such a convenient
place near the library will take the
Place ot tbe elusive automobile of last
year as a parking place of popular

Sttd Hope Leemlng will prove the most
formidable for the numerous other

Will defend her tilte against such
Stars as Donalds Strauss, Hope Leemlng and Jeanne Carlaw. The tournament starts Monday, October 11 and
S universal turnout is expected tor

Plans have been under consideration all summer for the erection of
the University gymnasium and in all
probability a meeting of tho student
body will be called in the near future
before   which  all   plans   will   bo  laid,
While nothing very definite has been
attained in this matter, the committee
which has been engaged during the
summer months in gathering data and
general Information concerning the
cost of erection and other particulars,
has several suggestions to lay before
the students. Prominent among these
Is the suggestion that each student
be assessed a certain amount not yet
decided upon and that this fee be
added to the regular Alma Mater fee
This fee, It is proposed, will be set
aside tor general student building
purposes, The Immediate object of
this fund will be the erection of the
{ymnasium and the Women's Union
uilding. The committee appointed
at the end of last session was headed
by Mr. John Grace Ed. '27, who was
assisted by Miss Margaret Keillor,
Arts '27, Miss Alice Weaver, Arts '28,
Miss Kathleen Peck of Arts '27.
The plan which has been resorted
to several times on previous occasion*, namely thnt of making an appeal to the public for funds, has heen
abandoned because nt the fact that
this plan would Interfere with the
campaign on behalf of the Home Economics chair. However, some new accommodations are absolutely necessary because of the fnct that the tent-
Krary dressing sheds whioh have
en in use during the past year will
Rrobably be demolished in th* near
tture. These sheds have only bean
left standing through the kindness of
the head engineer and although they
have bridged the Immediate necessity
for a gymnasium, still their loss will
leave the various athletic organisations without facilities whatever. As
a result there is great necessity for
Immediate action and accordingly the
matter will be placed before the students at the earliest possible moment
for their discussion and approval.
Soccer Team Loses First
Contest to St Andrew's
A lighting Varsity soccer team got the short end of a 6-8 count against
St, Andrews on Saturday at Athletic Park,* but they showed the fight that
is going to carry them a long way In the League this year.
Taking It all round they should havo got an even break against the
Scot*, since three of their six counters were handed to them on a silver
tray. The referee banded out a penalty on Newcombe lu the second half
that didn't look so good and the crowd called It a bad break. Campbell
scored on it. The other two goals in the second half were made by the over-
eagerness ot Varsity backs to clear in front of the goal and in their attempts
they only aided the ball Into the enclosure,
St. Andrew* pressed on the opening
?;ong and were rewarded by a counter
roin Colin Campbell'* shot from close
in. Shortly after young Berto scored
for Varsity, but an offside Interpretation by the referee called the whole
affair off. The crowd again voiced
their appreciation ot capital punishment, but that didn't help. After a
sertea ot exchanges the Scotchmen
made It number two whon Hargreaves
pounded a nice offering into the corner. Shortly before half time Smith
hung up the third count tor the Heather boys. Halt time score three to one.
The second halt opened with the
Saints pressing hard, but Campbell
missed an easy shot. Tbe kiok off
found the Varsity crowd pressing hard
and after a series of exchanges In
front of the St. Andrews' goal Berto
banged In counter number two. On
the return ot the ball Into Varsity territory Ledlngham slipped in an attempt to clear and aided the ball into
the goal. The next score came on a
penalty shot converted into a score
by Campbell ot tbe Scots. After a few
minutes tho Scots pressed and Keenly-
side cleared a St. Andrew shot but
left his goal and Phillips In attempting to save the return shot fell on the
ball and again aided a goal. From
then on the Varsity team pressed hard
and Crute got results on a high drive.
Varsity showed lack of practice and
condition but should do better after
a little practice.
ssey Statement
Corrected by Dean
Our attention has been drawn
to certain statements made In
our Issue of October 1st, referring to Harry Warren's degree,
which may mislead the render in
regard to the entrance requirements to Oxford, It was stated
"that because a B.A. degree is
necessary for entrance to Oxford,
Warren discontinued his work in
geology to complete his B.A."
The following paragraph la quoted, in correction of the foregoing
statement, from a letter sent to
us by R. W. Brock, Dean of the
Faculty ot Applied Science.
"The facts are: Warren did not
discontinue his course but completed the work for a B.A. Sc.
degree. Since Oxford had not
been asked previously to recognize the IT. B. C. B.A. Sc. degree,
hut had the B.A. degree and there
was doubt If the necessary formalities could be completed in
time for Warren's entrance, Warren took summer school and
secured his B.A. He can secure
his B.A. Sc. degree next year
after the six years' University
work required In the "Double
Course." Tho recognition was,
however, put through during the
summer and Oxford now accepts
the V. B. C. B.A. So. as do other
graduate schools."
Tho Ubyssey hopes that this
will correct any misunderstanding that may have resulted from
Its former statement; and thanks
Dean Brock for having drawn the
matter to the attention of the
student body. Particularly we
refer the students to the last sentence uf the quoted paragraph
which contains new Information
nf Interest to all undergraduate*
-the fact that tbe U. B. C. BA.
Sc. degree Is recognised at Oxford.
The Initial mooting of the Tennis
Club will take place Wednesday, October Oth, Ht 12.16, Room A. 108, Hv-
erybody Interested should be on hand.
Many Debates on
Year's Programme
In another week or two debating activities will be in full swing. Meantime plans are rapidly being carried
forward to completion. On Tuesday
evening two delegates from here, F.
C. PUkington and W. P. Taylor, will
be present at the first meeting ot the
Vancouver Debating League, to be
held at the Y.M.C.A. It is hoped that
two teams, Varsity and U.B.C, will
again enter the League this year.
There are six debates in which each
team is to take part; two of these
will probably take place before Christmas, the remainder will be completed
ns soon aB possible after the openlug
of the Spring Term in order to allow
time for the contestants In the Vancouver Oratorical Contest to prepare
their material. For two years running U. B. C. han captured the prise
given to the winner, in 1925 "Jlmmie"
Craig was our champion and last year,
Gordon Telford.
Correspondence has been opened
with Victoria College about the Frosh-
man-Sophomore Dual Debate. It is
proposed to hold this debate about
November 6th, and the try-outs will
be held soon. This try-out is Intended to introduce the debaters ot the
Freshman Class to the University-
last year of the four men chosen for
the debate three were Freshmen.

Varsity opened the English Rugby
season auspiciously Saturday when
the Arts Ruggers stepped over the
King Edward Old Boys for a 6 to S
King Edward Old Boys frightened
the Varsity supporters a bit in the
flrst few moments of tbe game when
they scored one which they converted.
Within the half, however, Taylor
snatched the ball and galloped across
the opposing line and Qustafson made
the most ot a penalty kick* The half-
time score was thus 6-6 for Varsity.
Although lighter than their opponents, Varslty'a new team showed decided promise. There was an evidence of good condition,—something
that the Old Boys didn't have.
Tupper and Taylor did great service
for the Varsity on the back-line and
the whole scrum showed up in good
form. Taylor's brilliant run was one
of the deciding features ot tbe game
and although Qustafson missed the
convert ho made np for It by a nice
Captain Tupper worried the opposition several times by long runs and
the fleet backs ot the blue and gold
proved a match for the speed/ blue
and white. An Interesting feature
of the Varsity lineup wa* that three
players, the Barrett brothers and Mc-
Intyre, are all Freshmen.
At Strathcona Varsity's intermediates were forced to take the wrong
end ot a 12 to 0 score from the Meralomas.
Tennis Courts
Open Tomorrow
The official opening of the Memorial
Tennis Courts will take place Wednesday afternoon of this week. In
honor of the occasion exhibition games
will be staged by some of the foremost tennis exponents of the city.
J. A. McGiil, A. S. Milne, Oeorge Sparling and George Dixon have been invited to play and have promised to
provide both singles and doubles
matches. Weather permitting, some
excellent tennis may be looked for.
F'or these men concrete courts will
he no novelty for although Vancouver
boasts only one court, of that material,
other coast cities have constructed a
large number of them In recent years.
Wherever they are used concrete
courts are much favoured becauae of
their accuracy, permanence and durability.
Wednesday's matches will provide
an opportunity for anyone Interested
in tennis to see It nt Its best. It
will be the only event of Its kind this
year. Although there are no bleachers, a large crowd will be able to witness the play from the side lines.
Play will commence at 2.S0 p.m.
For the first time in its history the
annual tennis tournament will be
played on our own courts. This year
the tournament will commence Monday, October 11th, at ten o'clock. Entries close Saturday at one o'clock.
Entree lists are posted on the men's
nnd women's notice boards In the Arts
Only members of the University
Tennis Club will be allowed to ubo
the tennis courts and as the number
of members will necessarily be rest rioted, those wishing to play should
waste no time in getting their name*
on the list for membership. Any student, however, paying the necessary
fee may play In the annual tournament whether or not they Join the

Things of Interest-
In this, tho second article, we continue our discussion of the university
shields which embellish the library
windows. On the west wall, Immediately opposite the loan desk, there
appears another row of "arms," Again
the U.B.C. shield holds the central
position and Is flanked on tbe observer's right by McOlll, and on the left
by Toronto—the two oldest and largest universities In Canada. Continuing
to the right there are fit. Joseph, New
Brunswick, Manitoba, Alberta, Snd
Victoria College, Toronto, and, to Complete the list, on the left we find Mount
Allison, Laval, St. Francois Xavler.
Edinburgh and McMaster,
In the last article we differentiated
between the terms crest, and shield
or arms; and traoed, in brief; the development of armorial bearings. In
a few lines shall be discussed tha
seemingly wide gap between the shield
worn by the knight in battle And
that adopted by unlversitiea.
The old medieval order of thing*
consisted in essence of the Knight and
the Monk. The age has been highly
colored by the writers of romance, and
the real, sordid fact* of life have
been softened by the mellow Influence
of time. Always have these two ple>
turesque figures been associated together—bulwarks of the medieval
state and church. Each was complementary to the other—both fundamental to the Order.
The education of the Middle Ages
was wholly under the control of the
monks. They taught regard tor the
after-world, and, as for this life on
earth, "Hoc est oorpus," pnlp#?t||a**>'^
monks had books. Only they could
read and write. The only important
study, was at first, theology. The dried-
out husks of scholasticism shaokled
the intellect of the age. With the dawn
of the renaissance were found the universities in embryonic form struggling
for birth in these monastic cloisters.
The lives and customs of the knight
and monk stand in extreme contrast;
but the monk carried over the symbolism of his brother ruler. Instead, then,
of the arms denoting a family It now
also came to designate a group of men,
united by a common purpose. The gap
between the symbolism of the Individual knight and that of the corporate
body had now been bridged.
Several factors helped to usher In
the adoption of shields by the monasteries and early universities. Symbolism and mysticism were dominant
In the medieval age. Literature and
art and sculpture were allegoric, symbolic. Anything which could be given
a symbolic interpretation was seised
upon with vigor. The shield or arms
lended itself to this treatment. The
pedants—the scholars of the letter—
became highly Interested in these mysterious pedigrees and traced the ancestry of historic families. Formal
treatises nnd parades of learning appeared. The shield usually carried
on It a motto, in Latin—the language
ol' the church and state. It served, too,
as a mark of distinction, and as one
of the few ornamentations of the severe monklsi costume.
The Idea of the shield, though the
shield itself was an Immediate outgrowth of medievalism, is as old a*
earth. It la a distinctive mark and a
property stamp. Tradition and sentiment bring to the University shield
an atmosphere which has strong appeals to something In us over and
above the Individual, It fosters 'Te*-
prlt de corps." Symbols such as flags,
eresis, nnd arms, though, In a sense,
medieval, are permanent, Inasmuch
ns ihey call up tn us emotions fundamentally human, and herein lies their
There will be a meeting of tha Badminton Club in King idward High
School Gymnasium (12th Ave. and
Laurel treet) at 8 o'clock, Tuesday,
Oct. Blh. All old member* and prospective members are urged to attend
as there Is much important business
to transact.
After tho meeting the courts will be
open for play.

It would be an interesting though a colossal task for somo mathematician to estimate just how many hours students wasted last
week by waiting in line to buy books. And the students did not
willingly stand there waiting, but did so because professors rightly
insisted that they immediately procure all necessary books. The
bookstore ,however, or rather the management of the bookstore had
previously decided that no student was entitled to buy books who
its* unwilling to stand in line for one, two, or three hours. Accordingly, those not possessing sufficient physical or mental endurance
to stand in S line for one, two, or three hours have not yet procured
their books,
The foregoing is to introduce our subject, the bookstore. The
student body has long been irritated by the lackadaisical manner in
Whioh this department has been managed; yet thus far it has uttered
no complaints. Like the proverbial Micawber it has been sanguinely
waiting lor •'something to turn up." From the ancient Fairview
.days, when the lineup extended along the stuffy corridor, until last
year, when the lineup extended along the hall of the new auditorium
building, the arotterings of students have been silenced by the hope
that "next year the congestion will be relieved." This year, as
usual, nothing has been done to better the service in the bookstore.
Farther, the students have had to stand in line for a longer period
of time than ever before.
Perhaps more than anything else, the fact that there need be no
inch eongestion and consequent delay annoys the students. From
past experiences, the management knows enough of first-day conditions at the bookstore to make proper provision for sale of texts
to Students, and in our opinion, it is stupidity in yearly ascending
scale that makes this annual demand of students that they wait one,
two, or three hours to buy their books. The remedy is obvious and
consists only in appointing for the first week at least such a number
of additional salesmen as would meet the rush and relieve the one
man at present helpless beneath the avalanche of buyers. We suggest that this matter be considered at once by the department concerned.
If the people who make a habit of shouting in the halls would do
so behind closed doors of the common rooms or on the campus it
would prove a distinct relief to students nnd faculty. During the
flrst two days the noise is excusable. It is naturnl to greet one's
acquaintances loudly nnd at length after five months' separation, and
of course the best place for such conversations is outside a classroom
or office. We have no doubt that these liall-pests have good intentions—however, hell is paved wilh »imk1 intentions. Noise in the
halls is extreme discourtesy on the part of the students und can easily
be avoided.

A Students' Parliament Is a Really
Workable Plan.
Kdllor "Ubyssey,"
Lear Sir:
The following may cast some light
on the future of a students' parliament In this university. I take It that
this parliament Is going to be run on
party lines, with party leaders and
an organised opposition. The very Idea
of party Is something that should
have been lost In the dim mists of
antiquity. True, It has stayed on aud
Is still used In our systems of parlia-
sald of that, the better, because that
ment In this University. I take it that
does not speak much for our intelligence—and I take it that we are intelligent people.
Could anyone imagine tor one moment students at this university taking their politics seriously and following their leader through thick and
thin, no matter what he does or how
he does. True, men do this in provincial nnd dominion politics, but they
have proceeded beyond the thinking
stage and are now in that happy clime
where they may do things we cannot
do and havo no scruples or misgivings
about doing them. But here, each man
Is In the habit of thinking for himself and has his own Ideas about Initiation, American Football, Varsity
Mops and Smokers, management of
student finances, athletics, debates
and so on.
A leader In this wide field obviously
could noi attempt to please everyone
-and if he did It would be the eighth
marvel of the world. This system, If
It is a system, would tend to follow
the French ministries, where we have
a small circle made up of the forces of
Herlot, Polncalre, Brland, etc., which
goes round and round, and never
stops—ministry follows ministry, but
no ministry stays long enough to enact real legislation. It would be the
same state of affairs In the Students'
It la up to the students to see that
their Parliament does not become a
farce for these two reasons: (1) It
might become dangerous to our traditions and impair our mentality; (2)
The idea of the thing is excellent if
only a workable scheme could be devised   for   its   practices.
New Clubs
Indoor sport enthusiasts will hear
with pleasure the announcement of
plans 10 organize an indoor athletic
club at Varsity. With the infinite
facilities on hand for the playing of
hand ball volley-ball and ping-pong,
much progress should be made.
Trapeze frames havo already been
erected in the basement of the library
and it is hoped thnt with tho librarian's permission further steps will be
taken towards the affixing of parallel
bars, rings and cross-bars.
For those who dabble in ping-pong
a club may be formod. An organizing committee has received suggestions for a fall tournament to be held
on the re-topped library tables.
As these tentative plana have not
yet heen laid before Student's Council
for ratltlcatlon they remain open for
moditlcatInn as further suggestions
are received.
Bruce Colquette is Very
Badly Injured
Friends of Mr, Bruco Colquottn,
Arts '2s, will regret to hear of tlio
v< ry serious accident which befell
him during the summer. Mr, Colquette was employed nt tho mines at
Premier, B, C. While coming from
work one evening he rode down In one
of the aerial tramway cars. On the
way down ho was thrown out of tho
car nnd fell about forty foot, breaking
both legs, nn arm and his collarbone.
The accident occurred about the middle of June and Bruce Is still in the
hospital at Prince Rupert. Members
of Arts '28 as well ns Mr. Colquetto's
friends In other years join In wlshlug
him a speedy recovery from the second operation which he must undergo In the near future.

Contributions Come
The Feature Department is delighted with the response to its Invitation
for contributions, In «ht> present Issue there are no loss than three tea-
turns that have heen written by students tint on the F< attire staff, and
(lure Is every indication thnt this
literary flood will continue,
" Is only right that these contribu-
torn should have fair warning. The
contributions must be kept up to a
certain standard to be accepted. Secondly, those contributions that are
accepted will probably be frightfully
mutilated, lo eliminate "slush" and
personalities, Thirdly, certain features will probably not appear until
a couple of Issues after acceptance,
For this reason It Is well to send in
the efforts early. Finally, features
should bo less than 700 words long.
We suggest that all contributors
should sign their names to their work,
and also a pen name or initials, if

It was Jaok Morgan, staggering,
stumbling, puffing and blowing In his
wretched bookstore. His twenty-flfth
cigarette that morning was disappearing fast. Torrents of smoke poured
from his mouth, clouds of It from his
nose, anil quite a tiit from his eyes
anil ears. His glasses listed to star-
hoard. His hair heeled over to port.
More anil more vicious became his
jabs at the adding machine, and mere

as they came ont. He was getting
mad fast, very fast, and not only mad
hut vicious.
Whoosh! Jack Morgan puckered up
hla lips into a huge doughnut, blew
out his cheeks, and once more with
a tremendous escape of rushing wind
gave vent to his feelings.

glanced wildly at the sea of faces bo-
fore him. For the fifty-seventh time
he vowed that he would not soil a
single book before he had his long-
lost dinner.
And for the fifty-seventh time, Jack
Morgan, though grumbling, muttering
and grunting, jabbed the adding machine again. (Cotiirlhuiodi

Wild Profs. I Have
It was a gloomy day when some of
the freshmen of Arts "o0 gathered for
their llrst lecture In B -~- 1.
It was raining as If it would never
.nop and hitler cold ll wart, 'J'lils ho-
ei uni'd for ii,i closed windows la Ihe
. '10111,
The last bell Koumlod and the alienee
ihat prevailed wax frightfully like u
block of Ice. Minutes drugged by und
I'tadunlly tho braver spirit* took heart
(iih no "Prof." had vet appeared) and
resumed their conversation with their
next door neighbor at tho point where
the bell had interrupted it.
Time passed—in fact It was twelve
minutes after the hour and some of
the bold, bad spirits were arising to
depart when In bounced the "Prof,"—
a man not very big, but then, as an
old sago put it "the best goods come
in small packages," but the most
amusing part of It was thnt this parcel waa rubbing hla nose with the back
of one hand, while in the other he
held, tightly clenched, a none too
sweet smelling pipe.
The good man looks at the clasa
calmly and slowly—by the way—it
might he mentioned the poor freshmen
have been turned into statues, some
are seated, others standing, while some
are in neither the one position or the
other. Such is the striking personality of a really great man. "Sit down"
he booms, and the sound re-echoes in
the room. At last the members of Arts
'30 find that they can once again use
their limbs but they also find that
they can also misuse them—for some
try to squeeze into seats that are
already half filled, others trip over
small legs that are shod In size two
shoes, so eager are they to please their
new E teacher.
Once more quiet Is restored and
the silence Is becoming oppressive
when the Professor comes out with
the welcomes he extends to every
freshman class: "Open the windows,
1 cannot stand the vile odor of freshmen." The wiudows, it may be said,
are duly raised and the poor creatures
are left to shiver their way through
the remaining part of the hour in the
best way they can.
"What Is your name?" says the
now "teacher" walking up to a child,
evidently only a few years removed
from the cradle stage of life.
"Please sir, It Is Waterfresh, sir,"
comes In a squeaky whisper, barely
audible two feet away.
"Louder!" booms the Prof, and yet
again, "Louder!" and so on until the
poor little infant runa up the entire
scale and gets stuck on a note that
would make Caruso turn over In bis
At last the new "teacher" seems
satisfied and he tups the youngster
mice, twice, ibrice on the lore part
ot the head (One of these times our
instructor Is going to kill some nice
young freshman with that vicious rap
and then In will be sorry) and cracks
joke number two: "1 don't know how
fresh the water is, but 1 do know a
freshman when I see him. You are
green; greener than the grass that
grows In  front of the Arts building."
"Tempos fuglt," while the "Prof."
tells the grass colored Lilliputians
what will happen to them If they fall
10 bring their text-books to class with
them next day (many students in their
upper years are bound for eternal
damnation if all thnt he says Is true),
If ihey yawn in class he says he will
never forgive them, if they come late
he threatens them with the most aw-
I'ul punishments, (Seniors and Juniors

All that follow* happened Monday,
the day before Varsity formally opened. I was a student last year and I
happen to know a little bit about our
ventre of learning. On the Monday,
already mentioned, I was out her*
breathing tho Invigorating osone, having Just returned from the tall timbers after wrestling with shingle
bolts all summer, t don't know what
1 was doing at tbe particular moment
she hove Tn sight—or I should say
slipped. But I knew from her way of
slipping that she was new to the waya
of our College and, as my power of
thought were clear that day, I decided she was a freshette.
Since the age of chivalry is not
quite dead and since there is at least
one gentleman left. In this age of
bustle and overwork, to aid a damsel
in distress, I asked her if I might be
of assistance to her in any way. She
smiled at me and that smile bound me
hand and foot as words like golden
arrows shot from lips, they were so
sweet, "Oh yes, you might ehow me
over the buildings." What would I
not have done for this "phantom of
delight V I ask you what would you
have done?
Dutlfululy I escorted her through
the Arts, Science, Applied Science and
Agricultural Building* and explained
to her to the utmost of my ability
the why and wherefore of everything.
What I did not know I created, as
every true guide should.
Then we proceeded to examine the
"in* and outs" of the Botanical gardens as so many reporters have done
By this time we were talking quite
freely to one another and as we were
on our voyage of exploration in the
Auditorium butldiug she cooed, "I
hear you have a tea-garden here."
(To the men I address this—what
would you have done?) That tea cost
me money and, as I am Scotch, I don't
object to spending money on sweet
Ooing home on the bus, I asked her
many questions concerning herself
but she evaded them until she rang
the bell for stop. Then she commanded me in strong terms not to get out.
She said, "You see, I wasn't here laBt
year but I graduated in 1926 from
Fairview and I was just dying to see
tbe new buildings, I couldn't last
year as I was out of town. Goodbye."
Gentlemen, I ask you: What would
you have done? (Contributed)

Arte Ont After
The Miller Cup
With the showing the Arts men
made on Saturday as a criterion of
what the class of rugby will be this
year we are feeling pretty happy.
When the season Is on Its way and
the teams are in better condition to
go the entire routo It looks as though
Stan Farquharson has the makings
of a snappy squad,
The playing of Doug. Mclntyre shows
lots of promise as he Is a neat ball
handler and possesses the necessary
speed to lead a three line.
Phil. Barrett Is another boy who
will go a long way in the English
code and like his running mate, Mclntyre, has speed and ability to handle
the ball.
The intermediate team were not as
fortunate against the Meraloma fifteen, but don't be discouraged, gang,
there's lots more to be done, praotioe
will get results. Next week go out
there and play like All-Blacks.
Varsity showed real fight against
the Saints on Saturday, and despite
the 6-3 score against them two of
the Scots' goals were scored by over-
eager defending Varsity backs and
one on a penalty that was of n doubtful nature. Berto scored a neat shot
In the flrst canto, jut the boy that
toots around with the whistle said
"no," and all the Influence of the
crowd would not change him. It was
a real faux pas as it was a very doubtful decision.
The forward line will take a lot of
stopping when they get into shape
and It looks like a big season for Rex
Cameron and Tommy Berto who cover a lot of ground and can hold their
own with the best of them when thoy
wrap  their shoes  around  the  ball.
Keeiily.'dde In goal, backs Crute and
Maker, hall' backs Lcdinghain and
Phillips played creditable games for
the flrst time out.
