ONCE ypON A TIME (1940-41) ihcre was a senior editor of thc
UBYSSEY called Pierre Berton. He posed for this picture, later used as
a gag shot for a mythical story in thc annual GOON Issue entitled "BEAST
STALKS CAMPUS." Were there any vets on the campus at the time
they might have called such goings on "childish."
After graduation, at the early age of 21, Pierre became city editor of
a local morning paper — the youngest such editor in Canada.
Now Pierre is a hardened old veteran who has returned to work on
the city desk of another local paper. Not long ago Pierre came out to the
campus and "discovered" another "BEAST." This time lt was all about
thc unbridgable gap between the very young students and the very old
Pubsters were especially amused to find two ot their members
pictured, one as a youngster of 18, one as an old vet of 28. According
to Pierre's story Vancouver citizens were asked to believe that these two
types "merely Ignore each other." Actually, at the time the pictures
were taken, the two were sitting side by side at the UBCSSEY desk,
working quite amicably.

THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, February 23, 1946, Page 2
The job of a newspaper is to be interesting
as well as informative, and to some extent
a downtown Vancouver newspaper has provided both interest and information this past
week with its series of articles on the
University of British Columbia.
But although everyone enjoys a good
story and usually forgets about it as soon as
he puts his paper down, harmful effects
caused by a slight sacrifice of information
to the newspaper altar of reader interest
will linger. In this case, as a result of an
article headed "Two campus groups at UBC;
veterans and so-called 'kids'," which points
a finger at the split between two campus
age groups, "simply ignoring each other,"
campus age groups have withdrawn into
their "separate" lairs in startled surprise.
And the man on the street, who has been
hearing a lot about the university and who
new feels that he is "on the inside track" as
far as university activities arc concerned)
wiU nod his head knowingly and say triumphantly, "I told you so." He will enter tho
corner of either the "bobby sox, giggling
co-ed, or greek letter element," or the ex-
service boys, supposedly continual "gripers."
v To a certain extent the opinions touched
of! in the news article are true. There are
different groups on the campus, but the'
stratification is natural and purely a result
of age differences rather than of a split in
interests or ideals—natural in any society
anywhere. Student activities, supposedly
engaged in only by the "younger" element
have, by providing fields of common interest
begun to break down stratification which
would have been lessened next year, as much
as the prevailing age differences and busy
timetables will allow. The Jokers' Club,
fraternities, the Players' Club, the Undergraduate Societies' Committee, and Students' Council are examples.
It is undeniably true, as the story states,
that the description, "childishness," has been
applied to " the youthful Student Council,
the much maligned campus newspaper, and
to fraternities and sororities" by older ex-
service students.   It is also true that Since
September the executives and officials of
most campus activities are of the non-service
element. But there seems to be nothing
"childish" about campus activities, and
although increased age may mean increased
responsibilities, it may not mean increased
responsibility necessarily. But, criticism, as
long as it doesn't descend to griping for the
sake of gripng, is always helpful, and implies
interest rather than a lack of interest. Next
year should be a good year when a great
number of older students relax a little
extra-curricularly speaking.
But the story goes too far when it states
that the social division between mature and
"Joe College" students is so great that these
separate factions attend different social
functions because of incompatability rather
than age differences.
"The aloofness of the average veteran is
reflected in his attitude toward tho co-ed.
To a man who has seen the women of
Paree and London, a freshette of 18, still in
bobby socks, looks pretty young," reads the
article, and adds this quote from an ex-
serviceman "there certainly is not the same
common interest between men and women
there once was."
The poor "giggling," "bobby-soxed" co-ed
takes quite a beating, but it is doubtful
whether older servicemen, just because they
are attending university, are sadly resigning
themselves to marrying freshette's, six years
younger than themselves, just for the spirit
of the thing. As for giggling, probably less
women are addicted to this pastime than
others of the same age group.
On the whole, the article must be rather
embarrassing for the majority of servicemen
on the campus.
As for poor little Joe College, mythical
dewy-eyed little character, with pipe, rosy
cheeks, king-sized ego, red and yellow jallopy, and rather loud puppy-dog enthusiasm
—he went out with the 1936 cycle of Hollywood college movies.
There is no Joe or Josephine college life
at UBC— only a transition period.
The Ubyssey doesn't wish to make its
temporary anti-Science campaign too obvious, but certain incidents, which occurred
Wedesday on voting day, and which to a
certain extent were provoked by this paper,
deserve a review of the Science situation.
Sciencemen, when roused, are obviously
a dangerous element. When accused of not
having any Alma Mater Society spirit many
of them immediately set to work to prove
that they can make more noise than any
other group on the campus.
They turned out solidly for the elections
Wednesday. In fact, they snake-paraded
straight out of a pepmeet to vote, cheering
merrily and giving the general impression,
"the  Sciencemen  are  coming,   hooray,
During their display of red-shirt enthusiasm, they interrupted a speech by a Czecho-
slovakian refugee telling a large group of
students about the hardships of Czech students being machine-gunned in cold blood
and subsisting on scraps of food. The interruption, although unintentional, wa.s
slightly ironic.
A musical program in the auditorium of
downtown artists who had come out to give
UBC a concert, was also temporarily halted
by the "Science Invasion."
Enthusiasm is not always interpreted as
co-operation. The original editorial was not
worried about Science "spirit" — only
about Science co-operation.
One unfortunate incident occurred this
week which has done a great deal of harm
for the UBC War Memorial Gymnasium
An anonymous person, naming himself as
a Ubyssey reporter and (a canvasser for the
UBC War Memorial Gymnasium committee
phoned a Vancouver woman, telling her
that the committee had decided that she
was to contribute $500 to the gymnasium
fund and her husband $1,000.
The anonymous canvasser was very insulting, and ended up by mimicking the
woman's voice. The inevitable result is that
the university  and  the  gymnasium drive
have created a decidedly unfavorable impression.
Therefore, committee heads have issued
statements to the effect that canvassing will
be done only by personal contacts, the
original, and wisest, intention.
The identity of the so-called canvasser is
unknown. Committee heads suspect that
he was an "off-the-campus" crank.
The incident was unfortunate and a few
more repetitions will be disastrous. Students hearing of "fake canvassers" or similar incidents are asked to contact the
students canvassers' committee.
Maybe you remember those old Tom Mix
thrillers that always included a stampede
of cattle—this was before meat rationing,
when cattle could indulge in a movie career). Right in the path ofthe onrushing
shorthorns, blandly plucking a dead Cherokee, sat the heavy-lidded heroine, Daisy
Daisy Lou couldn't hear the cattle coming
because these wer silent pictures, but just
sat there as the pounding hooves bore down
on her, creating a tremendous excitement
that sent the smaller boys squirming into
the aisle and off to the Gentlemen's Room.
At the last moment, of course, good old Tom
could be counted on to ride up on his white
horse, snatch remarkably flexible Daisy Lou
to his pommel, and gallop away, leaving ten
thousand cattle feeling pretty foolish.
Feel Like Daisy Lou
Anyhow, it's when the college crowd pours
out of the streetcars at Tenth and Sasamat
and thunders towards the busses that I sometimes feel like Daisy Lou. In my worst
dreams I'm always cowering in the path of
this maddened herd, my foot caught in a
switch and Tom Mix unavailable. Sometimes a B.C. Electric inspector gallops up
on a white conductor to snatch me to his
change belt, but more often I wake up in a
'cold sweat, trampled into an academic pulp
by hundreds of boots, wedgies, and the
horny bare feet of Sciencemen.
For us old boys, accustomed to the more
sedate transportation of former years, there
is something profoundly unnerving about
that early-morning fifty-yard dash from the
fanny of a fifteen to the end of a bus queue. I
never get away to the good, fast start that
is so necessary if you want to avoid being
elbowed out of the direct line of the fight.
Sometimes, on darker mornings, I trot in
the wrong direction towards Jericho Beach.
It all depends how I'm pointed when the
crowd hits me from behind leaving the

HAVE YOU ever wondered what it is about Vancouver
that makes people so lethargic? It is not the lethargy of
characteristic self-restraint such as one may find in the
Englishman, or the suspicious reticence of the Oriental.
Perhaps it is the ever-present fear that someone is going to
slip one over on us and leave us with the worst of the
bargain. It may be something to do with the air or the
weather or even with the (chlorinated) water. Whatever
may be the reason the fact remains that this is an apathetic

Dear M;id;im:
Tho criticism directed ;it tht

You stated t 'at Council members

make in :v.\ editorial o.speci dly as
you should know that Council
mcmfcvrs receive complimentary
tickets to all Alma Mater functions—including the Science Ball.
Wo also got a slam for the small
turnout of Engineers for Treasurers' elections. If you check your
figure^ you wil note that 30 psr
cent of the Engineers voted at this
election, only 23, per cent of the
total student body voted. We hod
an exceptionally good turnout for
presidential elections because wv
realized that a very experieneced
and capable man was running and
we wanted to support him.

Engineers are the tactless morons of the campus; thus named
because of the majority of those
who drag tho entire faculty to infamy. There are many fine individuals among the Sciencemen who
are dragged under by the booxish-
ness of their classmates.
Why do I say this? I say this
because I am ashamed of the actions of my fellow engineers.
They scatter lunch papers, bread
crumbs, apple cores and other
filfth in their own drafting rooms
and halls. Drafting tables are broken and stools smashed in actions
of utter stupidity, Even a pig has
a few clean habits! Furthermore,

Engineers are heavily laden with

little time for pleasures and social

Within thc faculty there is a

is often felt throughout the entiro

Varsity to while away their time,

LACE, PANTALOONS GRACE      stars for mussoc production
THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, February 23, 1946, Page 3
MUSSOC'S PANTALOON production, "Merrie England" promises to be top entertainment, what with the
Elizabethan setting, costumes, maids and yeomen it contains.
All this, and Queen Elizabeth, Essex, and Sir Walter Raleigh
too, plunked down in a scene set in Windsor during Mayday,
forthcoming   opera
The forthcoming opera revolves charmingly around the usual theme of love with a triangle.
The three vertices are Queen Elizabeth (Kay Cole) who loves Sir
Walter (Raleigh (Dave Holman>
who loves the Queen's lady-in-
waiting, one Bessie Throckmorton
(Alice Stonehouse).
Jill-all-alons, gypsy girl played
by Gerry; Foote, becomes Involved
in the complications when she
finds a billet-doux from Raleigh
to Bessie, and is In turn accosted
by Lord Essex (Dick Brown) who
is anxious to replace Raleigh as
the Queen's favorite. He confiscates the letter as an evidence of
witchcraft, and the epistle, of
course, is shown to the Queen
during the ensuing trial.
Unfortunately, complications a,-
rise when Elizabeth is convinced
that Raleigh has affectionately addressed her as Bessie. Although
the real Bessie keeps silent, Raleigh
points out to the Queen the error
of her thinking, and gets himseU
banished, Bessie imprisoned and
Jill a death sentence.
Jill, however, has a trick up her
medieval sleeve. She helps the
lovers to escape through a secret
passage her father had told hei
about, which leads from the dungeons to Heme's Oak, a nearby
forest.    Incidentally Jill's father's
fondness for  hunting outfits  has
the  whole  village  believing that
he is the ghost of Hunter Heme
come back to haunt the Oak.
Scheming Essex follows the refugees into the forest. The dark
horse changes his color, however,
and promises to help Raleigh and
Bessie to wed (which leaves himself for the Queen). By having a
forester (Tom Hill) masquerade as
Heme they frighten Elizabeth into
pardoning the condemned pair.
In an uproarious comedy scene
during which Wilkins (Eddie Hulford) stars, the wraith appears,
and the Queen is convinced that
she has done wrong. Under the
emotional strain she forgives
everybody and confers her favor
on h« "protector," Essex. The
curtain falls with the Robin Hood
wedding of Raleigh and Bessie.
As it takes place in the heyday
of punning and word play, the
opera is spiced throughout with
witty dialogue. Drama and love
interest have a new wrinkle, and
th; character portrayal seems exceptional.
Direction and production under
Mr. C. Haydn hits a high standard as does the handling of the
dialogue by Mr. E. V. Young and
Professor Walter Gage.
TWO EVENING performances of the current Mussoc
operetta, "Merrie England," Wednesday, February 27 and
Monday, March 4, will be reserved at students' night.
Tickets  will   be  distributed, on

POSED ABOVE in various attitudes of Elizabethan grandeur are these starring
players from this year's gala Musical Society production, Merrie England. Left to right:

Holman, and Gerry Foote.
presentation of AMS passes, from
the Quad box office, Monday noon.
For the public, Kelly's Seymour
store will have available tickets
for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday showings of the production.
Set in the colorful days of Elizabethan England, the opera
abounds in lyrics and laughs,
coupled with a strong plot. It is
under the quadruple management
of Winnie Irwin, Mussoc president, C. Haydn Williams, the musical director, and dramatic directors E. V. Young and Professor W.
Principal characters of the story
are Queen Elizabeth played by
Kathleen Cole, Bessie Throckmorton by Alice Stonehouse, and Sir
Walter Raleigh by Dave Holman,
who supplies the love interest. A
commoner May Queen is played
by Ericka Nalos, and Jill-all-alone,
a gypsey maid accused of witchcraft, by Gerry Foote.
Dick Brawn stalks about as Sir
Walter Raleigh. Eddie Hulford and
Doris Melnik are cast as Walter
Wilkins and Silas Simklns, two
comic bumpkins.
Background is supplied by a mixed chorus, composed of 20 men
and 20 women. Accompanying music is by the 25-piece orchestra,
which consists chiefly of student
Mussoc members.
Mr. Williams, who has directed
plays for 21 years, feels that the
production being attempted this
year is more difficult than those
previously produced. "Because it
is so subtle it is more difficult to
convey the meanings in song."
Lucille Hawkins, club vice-
president, appears as the jester
semi-lead. Off-stage, Eddie Hul-
fore, who is one-half of the comic
interest, is the production manager. Jerry MacDonald is publicity
manager and Pat Whelan acta as
assistant production manager.
China Wants Peace And
Justice-Consul Tsung
CHINA'S POLICY IS PEACE and justice in Asia,"
announced T. S. Tsung in his address to the SCM Thursday
noon, Feburary 21.
Mr. Tsung, a member of the
Chinese Consulate, said that this
policy was evident both in China's
foreign affairs and in her domestic
problems. Regarding external matters he stated, "We ourselves have
no territorial designs on our
Although China suffered considerably at the hands of her neighbors during tho war, she believes
in the policy of "live and let live".
"We bear no grudge against
these nations because we have
known all along our real enemy
was Japan. China is now friendly
toward these nations and sympathetic to their struggle for self-
government and self-determination.
\ "The Chinese people," stated the
young diplomat, "realized that
China had not been fighting the
Japanese people, but their war
lords, and are not interestedin acquiring Japanese territory, but
only in regaining their rights."
The policy of peace and justice
will also be applied to China's domestic problems. China, a republic
for 34 years, has always lacked internal peace. "She has been an
arena of international power politics and her international position
has been weakened by foreign
"For the first time, China wilt
have a chance to solve her own
problems, in her own way and in
peace," concluded Tsung. "China
intends to carry out her long-term
program of industrialization and is
aiming at) international, as well as
national,  welfare.
"The 400 million inhabitants will
provide another new world, in an
economic sense, which will benefit the present world as much as
the United States once did. China's
policy of peace and justice in Asia
means to Asia, and to the world,
both freedom from fear and freedom from want."
STUDENTS on the campus will
have an opportunity to get a first
hand account of the recent UNO
sessions in London when Mr. Max
Freedman, UNO delegate, addresses the members of IRC on
Monday noon in Aru 100.
Freedman, in n*is capacity aa
secretary to the Canadian Minister of Trade and Commerce, was
associated with the Dominion Delegation to London and is a recent

Week-end  Review
And Preview
. . . operation dollar
WHEN AN ANONYMOUS caller phoned the Editor-
in-Chief and called undergraduates a "bunch of spineless
brats without overseas service" and complained about the
"wastage" of sugar involved in a recent pie-throwing effort
to help the Memorial Gym campaign, she touched off this
avalanche of sugar-filled envelopes.
The incensed vets on the campus, including many with
decorations for heroism overseas, sent in the flood of contributions to the lady who lacked sweatness. Neatly inscribed
on the envelopes are their records of overseas service, in
some cases as long as 62 months.
week's column will be turned
over to a guest review by a recent
UBC graduate, of a hit still running in New York—one of the
first plays he saw there—"Harvey,"
The correction: the Markova-
Dolin ballet group are coming
earlier than was •expected and will
bo presented next Thursday, Feb.
28, nt the Orpheum Theatre by the
Hilker people.
"On seeing 'Harvey'—full house,
very slow going out, each step
going down the word was wonderful, which, if anything ever
is wonderful, this was. The setting
*    *
A DIR_CnONAL EFFECT I noticed was the skill with which
offensive words w^re so rolled-ofi
that their harshness or rudeness
seemed to escape you. Th* word
is not slighted but seems to be
said as though it had been rounded off; the hearer has to recall it
to realize it, as if the word had
gone by you unawares. "Bastards"
is said—and it's an important example in this play. Its merit appears to come from a peculiar emphasis derived from the unfamiliar
und the softened but unhesitating
intonation of it. The line is "and
human  beings  are   bastards".
One last thing a&out 'Harvey'
is an actor's device. It depends on
an easily perceivable comedic effect in the script. It consists of the
loudness, sustained loudness for b
phrase or a sentence, as equally
as it does of softness and slowness
was simple—a parlour but dowdy.
The first scene left this impression, how could this 'Harvey' stuff
ever be anything but too slight to
be more than silly? ('Harvey', incidentally, is a 6 foot invisible
rabbit with whom the star of the
play talks).
By the second act "Harvey' had
put on weight, by the third 'real'
life was away on the outside of
the theatre and wholly unreal and
unimportant. One amusing bit of
stage business effectively imparted
the illusion of 'Harvey' passing invisibly across the moonlit stage:
door opens left, pause, closes,
pause, opens on right and closes.
and lightness. Sometimes it's expected and desired and then to
be hoped for with the unconscious sense that the actor may
delightfully fool you by doing
something else though you don't
want him to and he doesn't intend
to. Chiefly it seems the actor
achieves an endless and surprising
variety by being impossible to anticipate. You think he'll come
back meekly, he comes back
strong. The line speaks contrition,
his voice bugles matter-of-fact
common sense. You expect confidence and bravado, you get regret.
For loudness you get softness, for
that something else, until finally
the actor makes you think he
v/rote the plcee—how could it possibly be played without him?
anyhow, that is acting, and today
it was done by Frank Fay, who
stars in 'Harvey'.

IT WOULD ALMOST SEEM that UBC wants a new
Gym. I have come to this conclusion after seeing advertisements, seeing young business men canvass downtown
B.T.O.'s, and noticing that the Jokers are in action in an
extra rapid-fire way lately. Yes little chums, Varsity's
students are right behind this deal and that's just the spirit
that we need to put this thing over.
Next week, the world of sports is going to put in its
two cents worth toward the cause. There's the game tonight
when the 'Birds meet Idaho, the winless wonders of the
Conference loop. An anonymous gentleman has got the
spirit of the thing when he has pledged one dollar towards
the fund for every point the Blue and Gold squad get in the
two game series. The kids have their sights set at $200, and
that ain't hay!     ,
Chiefs to Meet Coeds
Comes Tuesday of next week and comes the Chocolate
Coeds. They are really a great team according to the news
we have received about' them. Our Chieftans will be in there
to do their best against the gals. Seeing as how they have
just disposed of the Stacy crew in the semis of the City
Senior hoop loop, they figure this tilt should be a cinch. All
they have to do is out-jump such coeds as Helen Streamline
Smith, the seven foot star of tiie team. Maybe the boys
should bring their stilts along.
The affair is to be a pass feature and a collection will
be taken at the door to bring in some moola for the Gym
Fund. Of course the Jokers will be out at the half way mark
and to top things off, Ray Gardiner will be there to interview
the visiting team. It is whispered that Ray intends to bring
his step-ladder.   Game time is 12:30.
On Friday night, the semi-finals of tiie Vancouver Invitational badminton tourney get under way. Here again, the
people behind the meet have decided to help out in the Gym
Fund. All the proceeds from Friday night's attendance will
be donated. Varsity has a crew of six in the tourney including
such stars as Dairy Thompson and Lois Reid.
And More Sports Even Yet
But next Saturday is the big day in the sportlight. It's
officially called Visitors' Day and UBC's sport circles are
intending to show off no end to all those who turn out to
see what makes the wheels go round at our worthy institution. The big occasion is the McKechnie Cup battle to be
played in the Stadium at 2:30.
The afternoon gets off to a great start with a ralher
largesome parade made up of the Air Force Cadet Band,
Spencer's Remnants Band, and a long line of high school
players. Along with them will be all the Howie McPhee
Memorial winners.
But actually the kick-off alone will be worth the price
of admission. It is rumoured that our Queen, Ruby Dunlop,
will pick her way daintily to the centre of the field to send
the pigskin flying.
Then comes the anti-climax in the form of a rugger
match. It really will be a thriller though, as the 'Birds have
to win to retain the silverware. If the Lions should come
out on top, the Cup will be theirs.
Jokers A re Still Busy
At the half way mark, guess what! Natch, it's the Jokers
again. This time they have ideas of letting loose with a horse
race but as the Ace Joker says, it doesn't matter what they
do. They'll be in there and that's all that counts. The match
will be broadcast over CBR by Alan Roughton.
Besides this little tid-bit, there will be a display in the
gym during the afternoon. The kids will be putting on an
exhibition of tumbling, apparatus work and a little volleyball. The folks might like to see what they do to us in a
P.T. class.
Saturday night, the hoopla version of the Thunderbirds
hits the maples in their last Conference game against College
of Puget Sound. Although the visitors are not in the top
ranks of the Conference, the game should be a good one. In a
prelim, the girls Senior B's meet Port Alberni.
All in all, the sports World of UBC hopes to send quite
a chunk of cabbage to the Memorial Drive. And as any
fnumph can plainly see, the affair is not to be missed. Drag
the rest of the family out and show them the works. You
might also show dad why we really need a gym by showing
him what we're using now.

Hedlunds started out with a
rush, chalking up 13 points before
Varsity managed to score. However, the coeds came to life in
the second quarter, scoring 12
points to the Meat Packers' 15. In
the second half, they managed to
hold Hedlunds to 9 points until
there were 5 minutes to go, when
the Packers ran wild, and chalked
up 10 points without a reply.
High-scorer on the Varsity squad

INTRAMURAL—Let us consider
this word ln its fullest sense. Let
ut* break It down Into two parts,
Intra, and mural. According to
the dictionary, Intra means "on
the Inside", and mural means
"garland given to soldiers who
first scaled wall of beselged town'.
This Is Indeed a revelation, because
if we put this together we get;
quote: "on the Inside, garland given
to soldiers who first scaled the
wall of a beselged town."
Now let us consider the Implications of this startling revelation.
It means that we are running a
complicated system of "on the Inside garland given to soldiers who
first scaled the wall of a beselged
town" games. We don't know
what we are running, and ln this
case our whole foundations are in
immediate fear of collapsing, so In
tliat case let's build a New Gym
before the old one does collapse.

TALL AND SHORT OF IT — When UBC's Chiefs take
to the maple courts Tuesday at noon, they will be out to beat
the Chocolate Coeds, a couple of whom we see pictured above.
Helen "Streamline" Smith is the seven foot babe on the left
and one of the best centres they've had. Vi Casey is the
other lassie, an All-American who will be playing at guard.
Femme Version Of Sepia
Wizardry To Meet Chiefs
A GALAXY of stars hit Varsity
Tuesday noon when the famous
sepia amazons of the maple courts,
the Chocolate Coeds meet the
Varsity Chiefs in a feature basketball fixture at the gym.
The All-American-studded quintet boasts a string of wins over
female aggregations which stretches untarnished since 1936, the
last time they bowed out to a
femme casaba squad. In their
clashes with top-flight men's teams
over the continent, the Coeds have
nabbed their share of the triumphs, and the Chiefs will have
all they can do to stop the negro
Stellar performer for the roving
hoopettes is Helen "Streamline"
Smith, currently sporting the
handle of the "Atomic Bomb of
Femme Hoop." Helen has her 180
edd pounds flung neatly about a
seven foot frame, and is noted for
her rushing brand of play. No
woman who has checked her has
ever been able to hold her to less
than 30 points a game.
The forward wall is completed
by Bernice Marshall and Betty
Washington, two cogy artists of
the razzle-dazzle type of ball. Bernice stands all of Ave feet, but
makes up for Nature's quirk by
featuring a speedy dribbling tech-
nlque and a lightning shot. Bette,
an Ohio All-State product is playing her first season with the squad
and is five foot eleven.

THE VARSITY gold-shirts are

and do battle for their alma mater
at Larwill Park. They meet Vancouver Uniteds in tha crucial, flnal
cup game; the winner of this aft-
, ernoon's game will (hold the Imperial Cup for the season '46-47.
Both teams are at full strength,
but Varsity is humored to be in
better shape due to their stiff practices and clean living. Ivan Carr
is still out of the lineup, on account of his illness, but his place
will be ably taken by Stu Todd
who has been working in well
with the Varsity team.
The last meeting of the two
IcKins, before Christmas, resulted
in a 1-1 d'-iw, and today's game
promises to be of the same calibre
as both teani.s have strengthened
up since then. The Longshoremen

Frosh-Sophs Lose
IN A hard-fought low-scoring
basketball game at King Ed Gym
Thursday night, Vancouver College, with their backs to the wall,
came through to down Varsity's
Inter B hoopsters 25-21.
The fighting Irish squad threw
up the same type of zone against
Varsity as the campus cagers used
so effectively against them on
Tuesday night. Using this zone
they bottled up Varsity's two high
scoring bucket men, Forsythe and
Selman, so well that the best these
two stars could do was 6 an 3
At the first breather the score
found the Varsity hoopsters ahead
7-5. This gave an indication of
the low scoring game to come.
College outscored the Varsity
quintet 7-6 in the second quarter
but the boys of the blue and gold
managed to sidle off the maple
at the half on the right side of a
13-12 count.
Brian  Mulhern  practically  won
the game single handed for the
College crew by sinking four
beautiful long shots in the last
half. The Varsity squad had
plenty of opportunity to put the
game on ice, but try as they
would, they just couldn't capitilize
on their scoring opportunities.

VARSITY'S unpredictable Chiefs clubbed their way
into the Inter-City Finals Wednesday night when they
downed a fighting Stacy quintet and sent them packing with
a 39-35 count at the Varsity Gym.
With rangy Dave Campbell providing the spark by
hanging up a 13 point total, the hoop warriors romped to an
early lead which proved too tough for the weary Shoemen
to overcome. The game turned into a torrid fracas in the
second half, however, as both squads ragged around heaving
the pill about the maple with an aim that wouldn't hit the
side of the proverbial barn door.
The Chieftains broke the ice as
Capozzi sank a gift throw in the
first minute of play and pulled
ahead of the disorganized Stacy
hoopsters who had trouble aligning their sights to the somewhat
strange surroundings. The old-
timers found themselves smothered
under a 9-3 deluge before they
started to roll and managed to
narrow the margin to 11-7 at the
The contest entered the second
canto as a deluge of Varsity melon-
men swooped down on the hapless
Stacymen to send the score up by
leaps and bounds. Campbell,
Stevenson and Bossons hit the
ht'mp with ruthless accuracy until
they had outscored the befuddled
business boys three to one at the
fifteen minute mark.
But the Stacy club roaredback
into the fray and laid the young
college five low as they launched
four straight long-range bombs
that exploded neatly through the
ring scarcely scratching the backboard. And so the limp melonmen
sidled off the maple at the half
with the Chiefs on top 22-14.
Despite the rosy raspberry and
heckling some volatile Jokers
meted out to the determined Stacy
clan, the oldtimers continued to
turn on the warmth and actually
succeeded in drawing within three
points of the somewnat reckless
Chiefties at the 28-25 mark.
Again it was a matter of condition as the campus cagers sprang
again and gripped the lead at tth*
three-quarter post ln a 32-25 grasp.
The last act was the climax
according to tradition wherein the
characters forewent style for
brawn, and in which the Chiefs
were badly in need of a 200 pound
line. Former Thunderbird, Coach
Art Johnson trotted onto the court
during the session and managed
to sooth his erratic charges with a
capable display of bather tossing
which held the rallying Stacy
A brace of smooth setups by
Stacymen McConnel and Edmundson livened the livid tension at a
37-33 count which wasn't eased
until Garry Stevenson and Pete
McGeer came through with the
lifesavers to up the Chiefs' stock
three points.
McConnel who was sizzling at
this point lifted the melon into
the smoke-filled air with but a
second to go and as the bell
sounded the casaba carommed off
the wood into the basket in a final
blaze of glory for the erstwhile
Stacy club.
Main cog in the Stacy comeback was George McConnel who
tallied 10 points, a sizeable total
considering the hard checking
extravaganza, wfhile Campbell and
McGeer played stellar ball for the
Varsity hoopmen.
Another feather in the caps of
Art Johnson's future titlists was
the masterful shackling job they
did on the first string trio of Pop
Pay, George Sibourne and big
Irwin "I hate all Jokers" Stout
who were held to two points.
Saturday night aeea the Chiefs
engage the Laurie Pie-rates in the
first of a three-out-of-five game
series for the championship. The
stage is set at the King Ed Gym
for what promises to be as torrid
a fixture as any healthy fan could
