Strike Topic
Forum Debate
"Are Strikes Necessary," the
topic presented on the Citizens'
Forum broadcast October 29
brought heated discussions from
forums throughout the province.
Reports just tabulated by the
E.C. secretary show that almost
unanimously forums feel strikes
should not be prohibited by law,
under present conditions.
Forums are equally divided on
the issue "Would the winning of
union security make for industrial peace?" Half say "Yes" and
the other half, "no there are
otheT factors Involved."
The organization of labour-
management councils was suggested as a means of promoting
healthier Industrial relations.
Some forums recommend arbitration while others feel improved relations would result from recognition of unions by management and by a broader view on
the part of labour towards its responsibilities to the whole economy.
The Student Council reversed its
previous decision banning Mr.
Buck from speaking on the campus,
considering that if he did, it would
be "detrimental to the present gym
drive and to the good of the university as a whole." The condition under which Mr, Buck was
allowed to appear was that he
should appear under the auspices
of the Parliamentary Forum.
Mr. Buck expressed approval
over the attitude of the students in
demanding that political speakers
be brought to the campus.
One of the suggestions made to
avoid confusion as to which organization should sponsor political
speakers was the formation of some
kind of co-ordinating committee
which would present speakers of
all political beliefs.
Establishment of such a committee was discussed at a meeting of
special representatives of the International Relations Club, the Parliamentary Forum, the Social Problems Club, snd the Student Christian Movement last Friday noon.
The representatives came to no
definite decision, and the meeting
was postponed until this Friday.

U of M Veteran
Standards High
University of Manitoba veterans, now attending lectures, are
proving their ability to settle
down and pursue college courses
with a high degree of success, according to a recent wire from the
prairie school.
Officials are high in then praise
of ex-service students who nave
earned many of the University's
scholarships and prizes. Statistics
comparing the marks of veterani
and those of students not in the
services are not available, but
figures show that the vets in all
faculties have, with few exceptions, passed without supplement-
als. Only 18.2 per cent were required to write one supplement
to complete their year.
HOP OFF
the Commerce uweton^
ally scheduled for Thursday, November 21, has been postponed
until January. It is felt that a
dance at the present time would
interfere to much with the already
overloaded schedule of most Commerce students. Final details of
the date will be released in later
editions of the Ubyssey.
and lapel tags will be distributed
in all classrooms. Students will
be held accountable for five cards
apiece and will be expected to turn
in the donations and surplus cards
to the Gym Drive office. Detailed
instructions will be issued to each
student.
CANVASSERS
The general student canvassers
will be expected to canvass only
their homes, friends, neighbours,
neighbourhood stores and business,
es. The downtown area defined as
thc area between Pacific Street
and the waterfront and between
Burrard and Main Streets, is not
to be canvassed except by the
regular Oym Drive canvassers.
These special canvassers have
already done their part according
to McLeod They will receive an
additional five cards but If they
do not wish to use them they may
turn them Into ths Oym Drive
office, and complete their canvassing in the afternoon. These are
the only people who will be legitimately excused from the day's
effort,
RALLY
At 12 noon on Thursday a rally
v/ill be held. It will either be in
front of the Library or in the Medium on Awnory in the event ot
rtin.
McLeod hinted that the eastern
beauty contestants may be revealed

will provide the music.

v.-ishes to impress upon the *to>
dents the fact that the faculty feels
a crisis exists and unless every
student does his part all the money
spent on the drive will be wasted.
"This Is the only time in the
students' lives that they will be
called upon for an effort like lUay „
he said, "and I am sure that they
v/ill, In- future years, be ebss to
look back with pride on their past
in the Oym Campaign."
"All of Canada is looking to UBC
to build the Oym and we don't
want to fail. Wear your lapel

doing your part in erecting a
Memorial to the men from this
province who have lost their lives
in fighting for your country."

Students who have been earnestly struggling to get out to early lectures and those
who go home at crowded hours are still
trying to figure out what eager-beaver bus
jockeys mean when they advise intimately
(associated passengers to "double up in the
aisles, please." May I have the next waltz?
Any day now students will be seen carolling gaily their way. through the Quad in
preparation for the Mussoc masterpiece of
operetta production, the oft-repeated H.M.S.
Pinafore. Since the rainy season is upon
us at last after a superb Indian Summer,
would it be appropriate to play as an overture to his haughty Nautila fantasy, Handel's Water Music? Accepted dress would
consist of four-cornered pants suspended to
jerkins, with sharp remarks to pin them
down.
Latest talk is about the vets going back
to the land.   According to some conversa
tions they could make a good start with
some of the liberally spread Service dirt.
THE VOICE OF DAMER
Over in the Aggie pig-sty the boys have

call a farrowing experience.
Seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars
seems like a lot of money to put on a Physics

Epsom salts?
Social Note: The furnace went out last
night.
Caf coffee-quaffers steeped in their cups
of literary precedent in emulation of the
great Dr. Johnson, are chiefly noted for
atomic dissertations on the disintegration of
the bean-imbiber's morals. These are
grounds for investigation.

. . . Footnotes
By D. GEE
It seems a fellow can't settlo
down to read a good book nowadays without becoming Immediately Involved ln a plot as thick
as Mrs. Mulrooney's Friday night
stew, and just as confusing.
Now, one would expect a certain
amount of prevailing mystery u,
a horror book, or tales,of the supernatural, or something like that.
But when one becomes embroiled
in a web of confusion in an ordinary novel, and in the opening
paragraphs at that, one does not
appreciate lt.
Take for instance a paragraph
like the following, typical of many.
Alicia just sat there. She sat
there and sat there. Aad when she
got tired of sitting there, she
moved over te the rock and sat
herself ln a more comfortable position. What was she to do? She
couldn't actually toil him. And she
couldn't go back to the house. Such
a dear dear house! Nobody appreciated It anymore. Or Wilf either.
And then there was the trip to
Kansas. Should she accept? Or not?
She moved over to another rock
and thought the matter over.
And so you have it. None of
the questions seem to have any
bearing on the rest of the story.
Perhaps they're just ln there to
Intrigue. Well, they don't intrigue
me. And to combat the above
atrocity on English literature I
have invented a plan, saleable to
publishers, called the Acme Footnote System. (Pat. No. X8463529)
You know, people don't use footnotes enough nowadays, anyhow. To me, there's nothing better
to spice up a page than a good old-
fashioned footnote. And so we proceed, under the revised plan:
Alicia just sat there. 1 She sat
there and sat there.2 And when
she got tired of sitting there, she
moved over to the rock and sat
herself in a more comfortable
position. 3 What was she to do? 4
She couldn't actually tell him. 5
And she couldn't go back to the
house. 6 Such a dear house. 7 Nobody appreciated It anymore. 8 Or
Wilf either. 9 And then there was
the trip to Kansas. 10 Should she
accept? 11 Or not? 12 She moved
over to another rock and thought
the matter over. 13
1. On a rock,
2. She kept sitting there.
3. When she sits in one position
too long, she gets sore marks all
over her rump. Too bad, Alicia.
4. About her lover, Hansell Flag-
darm. She no longer liked him.
5. Embarrassing what?
6. Her own house. She was boarding somewhere.
7. Sentimental old girl.
8. Nobody lived there anymore
after IT (14) happened.
9. Pardon me — Wilf was the
gardener, and there was nobody
around to pay (him. You can be
sure HE didn't like it.
10. Now at this point, things get
a little confusing. I'm not sure
about this trip to Kansas idea.
Possibly, she was on some radio
quiz program, and they offered her
a trip to ... Oh well, read on.
11. Positively.
12. Apparently, there were two
alternatives.
13. Those red marks on her rump
again!
14. Just to spice the story up,
somebody had a baby.

With Malice Aforethought
BY PETER REMNANT
POLICY UNLIMITED
It would be hard to say just when each and every one
of us began to accept the fact that newspapers and magazines
present carefully trimmed and selected reports of the world's
news, under the hawk-eyed guidance of a 'policy'. But whenever it was, our awakening took place so long ago that we
tend to lapse into a coma of credulity, wherein we swallow
unhesitatingly the fantastic meals of distorted news that come
as a daily diet.
In the absence of an overall government propaganda bureau in these
parts of the world the proprietors of the sources of news have taken it
upon themselves to guide public opinion into their conception of the
right path. Whether such an irresponsible and unintegrated form of
propaganda is preferable to a government bureau of information is a
good question The term 'freedom of the press' is taking on day by day
a more sinister meaning.
Today, as the world situation becomes more and more tense and the
possession of true facts by every member of the population becomes more
imperative, we are in the position of being unable to believe a printed
word about our greatest enemy—or friend—Russia. Add to this the fact
that each of us tends only to read the stories which agree with our own
point of view, end we arrive at decisions that might as accurately fit the
situation on the far side of the moon.
OMINOUS  CLICHES
Under the impact of this distorted presentation, the man, in the street,
whose Intelligence is becoming more and more contemptible every day,
has pretty well convinced himself of a number of rather neat little packages of thought—bitter little pills of homespun philosophy. They patter
out in rapid succession—'If we have to fight we'll never be readier than
we are now'—'There isn't room in the world for Capitalism and Communism — Fascism, Communism; just two names for the same thing-
worst of all, 'If it has to be one or the other I'll take Fascism'—they are not
expressions and ideas arising out of a systematic political philosophy,
however immature. They are the unanchored, unrelated tags that make
up the individual's total outlook. They are /as valuable as the titles of
books, without the contents.
Possibly the last of those tags is exaggerated; as yet very few people
embrace Fascism quite so openly or consciously. Most of them are sincerely unaware of the fact that their favourite Utopia is in reality a
Fascist one. Most of them couldn't tell a dialectical materialist from a
transcendental idealist of the Anglo Hegelian school, but let that pass. It
is from just that source of newspaper nurtured political ignorance that all
these vicious little catch phrases spring. It is not hard for people who know-
nothing about Fascism or Communism or the readiness for war to repeat
glib words about all three, and when such nonsense is organised by private interest Into public opinion, Ood help us.
HUZZAH FOR HANK
The ridiculous bias Into which we have drifted with regard to
Russia, alter twenty years of adverse indoctrination, has never been
better exemplified than by the outcome of Henry Wallace's attempt to
look squarely at our problems. And from Russia's point of view mere
can be no better proof of our ill will than our unflinching determination to
look at only the worst features of her system-built into a picture as
horrifying and as convincing as would be a compilation of our worst
feature*.
The world as a whole has reached too halr-triggered a height of
civilization to subsist on anything but truth. We have outlived the days
of medicmal falsehood, meted out to us by benevolent rulers. Democracy,
if it will ever work, will only work In a world of educated and Informed
people. If the newsmongers will not give over their self assumed role of
propagandist, our governments must exert closer control over them. And
ln the long tneSntinfe we niust read widely and read'sceptically. '
Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
The subject of War Memorials
has lately achieved local prominence, and, curiously enough, ?
find one particular viewpoint conspicuously absent.
Not many years ago, the callous
mockery of the marble column in
the village square was denounced
from all quarters with gratifying
finality. There were those of us,
as well, who progressed as far as
to conclude that War Memorials
were neither necessary nor desirable. At best, they kept alive P,
spirit of nationalism; faith Ui
strength of arms; the glories of
war, and hatred for another nation because their grandfathers haa
fought our grandfathers.
There was also another group,
and a much larger one, who saw
in the almost defunct "war memorial" a handy device for obtaining things we have always warned, but could not expect to obtain
very soon by straightforwara
methods.
Their cry was, of course, "Lei
us have a useful memorial," "a
living memorial," although how a
"memorial" can be either useful
or living, no one has ever explained. Perhaps you doubting my sanity; then consider an analogy,
A mother has just sacrificed her
life to save her family. While the
surviving members are stiu in the
first flush of misdirected gratitude, little Willie (an unscrupulous
urchin who is obviously going to
make a "smart business man") devises a noble scheme and forthwith touches the relatives for contributions. "Really," says Willie,
"we must have a memorial. Aa
a matter of fact, I'm rather badly
off for a new pair of roller skates
We'll call them Mothers' Memorial Roller Skates, and attach a
plaque saying, To the Everlasting
Memory of our Loving Mother."
The family, being conditioned
to accept Willie at fact yalue, is
completely taken m; ana so is
anyone who cannot discover :
local analogy to this analogy.
In effect, we have cheapened
the sacrifices of war to the status
of an excuse for building a luxurious playground for schoolboys.
But let us not judge ourselves too
harshly. I am persuaded we need
this excuse to silence the cries of
countless other public projects
more worthy and more desirable.

RUMMAGE FOB GYM
Dvar Sir:
It seems to me that out of 8,601
students on the campus thert
should be hundreds of old dresses, sweaters, trousers, shoes, ties,
jewelry, trinkets, dishes, booki
and novels, etc, etc. The average
student has no more use for these
articles because of changes ol
style, or the novelty value wearing off, but many other people
could find definite use for them
I would suggest an all-out effort on the part of each studenl
to bring all such ancient article:
to the university for the remaining part of November.
Right after pay-day on December 2, these articles could be sold
in a monstrous rummage sale
downtown In a low cost hall.
I sincerely believe that the profits from such a sale would run
Into thousands of dollars and
make another contribution to the
Gym drive. Were some large campus organization" to take it over,
auction the entire lot, and really
publicize it to get Mrs. Q. Public
to the auction, it would be successful. But get the ball rolling
so we can accumulate a wh«,<e pile
of dollars and "Tote'em" home for
the Gym.

After the worries connected with being a member of the

report may seem insignificant in comparison, but not to University student Parzival Coops.
■s la looking foil a psrtner to

Coops, who has recently re-

At tht ag* of nine his parents took

When the Germans Invaded Hoiks*! they interned him, but later
released him because of his age.
la waa only 16 at the time. However, they found out that he was
aofthre la the underground, although they never found out the
extant of bit activities and hauled
him off to a concentration camp.
In April 1944 Coop* escaped from

Professor Young returned recently from an organization meeting of the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Society of
Agricultural Engineering ln Portland.
"There is a great promise foi
the future development of Agricultural improvements in B.C.",
reported Mr. Young.
The purpose of the conference
was to develop a greater degree of
co-operation between B.C., -daho
Oregon and Washington.
"This co-operation with tha U.S
will probably lead to a greater exchange of exports, information
and students, especially Canadians," continued Mr. Young.
The states and B.C. aro very
similar geographically and agriculturally, Professor Young went
on. Problems of machinery, irrigation and land draining can be
solved to the benefit of all.

School For Barbers Varsity Employment Bureau Claims
Will Open Soon    Jobs For All Including Graduates
THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, November 12,1946.  Page 3.
COMM. CRESTS
A barber school will soon be
opened on the campus, sponsored
by the vocational training division
of the department of education.
The school, to be located in the
orchard huts, will be set up to
train veterans in the art of haircutting. Training will probably include lectures ln sanitation and
hygeine aa well as practice work
in haircutting.
LONG TIME
It is estimated that a student
should have about 1000 hours
of barber work before writing the
examination. How long the proposed course will last is not yet
known.
FREE CUTS
University students w01 be able
to obtain free cuts by the barber-
students. One of the reasons the
school was established on the
campus was to provide this service for veterans studying hero
who could take advantage of the
free-haircut plan, and who could
provide the students with practice.
Peter Dyke, manager of the University barber shop, holds an
optimistic view of the new school.
He and his associates feel that
the school would have very little
effect on their business. "Operating at full capacity," he says,
"we can handle only one-quarter
of the male population here."

"Jobs, we've got a million of them!" This might be the
motto of the recently established University Employment and
Placement Service.
Since fall commencement, over
300 part-time jobs have been located for students.
These widely varying positions,
many of them on the campus itself, include such occupations as
window - washing, table - waiting,
baby • sitting, construction work,
, cooking, baking and many others,
CHRISTMAS JOBS
Registration for Christmas employment, lt was announced by
Maj. J. F. McLean, director of the
service, will probably begin Jhis
week, when exam schedules have
been settled.
In addition to placing students
ln part-time work, the employment service has, in co-operatioi,
with department heads, under-
taken to locate   permanent   em
ployment for graduates. Although
the bureau was organized only
during the summer, it has, according to the latest reports, placed
appfoxlmate'y 30 grads, 12 of
whom were women.
ALUM AID
Also, with the assistance of the
Alumni Association and of the
National Employment Service, the
University Employment Service
has been able to find full-time reemployment for a large number
of former graduates who wished
to change their jobs. Of 18 positions listed, 12 have been filled by
these people.
As well as placing of students
and ex-students, the bureau has
also endeavored to find jobs fer
the wives of student veterans.
Skating Club To
Reduce Their Fees
The directors of the Vancouver
Skating Club have set a special
fee of eight dollars for the 1946-

Regular fee for the season li
fifteen dollars, which entitles the
member to attend both session*,
on Wednesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.,
and on Sundays from 5 to 7 p.m.,
but directors, realizing that many
students were unable to attend
both periods have authorized the
reduction in an effort to enable
these people to continue to "enjoy this healthful and invigorating sport."
Any students who are interested
in figure skating are invited to
join tho club at either of its regular sessions.

THE BRAVES AND WAR PAINT
For many moons now, a selected few of the braves of
the tribe have been going through their hoopla dances on the
maples of the longhouse known as the gymnasium. These
selected men have pleased Great Chief Osborne a great deal
for they have endured the gruelling tests put forth by the
tribe's hoopla mentor.
The game of basketball is a traditional one to the Thunderbird tribe for they have shown their ability in this sport
for some time. At this time twelve moons ago, a.group of
the Blue and Gold men were running through the paces at
the command of Chief Osborne and it is a well-known fact
that these same warriors proved themselves both on their own
grounds and on the trail.
The Pow-wows Continue
This talented group of braves went so far as to take the
laurel wreath in this sport when they went through a series
of battles and defeated all the other teams which entered into
the competition.
Once again, the Thunderbirds are holding their powwows three times in every seven days.- Many new warriors
are on the team now that have obtained their learning as
Cheekakos of the tribe. But there are also many who have
returned from the battles of twelve moons ago to don the
war paint for the Blue and Gold in their battles of the near
future.
Among those who have returned to the call of battle are
Ron Weber, Ritchie Nichol, Harry Kermode, Harry Franklin,
and Pat McGeer. Rising from the rank of Cheekako are Bob
Haas, Jake Stevenson and Dave Campbell.
From Stripling To Warrior
Still others have come up to the lofty height of a warrior
from the ranks of the mere stripling. Such worthies are
Gordy Selman, Nev Munro, John Forsythe, all tall, strong
men of the tribe.
From other tribes come four others who have won the
favour of the Great Chief. They are Bob Scarr, Henry Tostenson, Jim McLean and Ken Fairbairn.
This is the team which made the journey by wagon to
the Valley village known as Chiliiwack three days ago. The
people there are trying to improve the conditions in their
sports centre so the Thunderbirds put on a game in which
all the wampum was to help that cause.
These are also the warriors who will represent our tribe
in the games during the next five moons. . Let us hope that
they will be able to carry on the tradition of the tribe in
bringing back the laurels again.

Varsity Rugger Team Wins
To Increase Miller Cup Lead
Campus Ruggermen got thoroughly soaked Saturday

Varsity made two trys and one convert to blacken North
Shore All-Blacks 8-3, while UBC dropped a tough one to
Meralomas 6-0.
Gal Hoopsters
In Torrid Win
Varsity Senior Girls made basketball history Friday nigiu when,
outpointed by a score of 23-9 at
lualf time, they rallied their forcei
and won the game against Green*
woods with a score of 40-36. The
game, one of a series against twe
local teams, was one of the best
ever played by a Blue and Gold
team.
The play was slow for Varsit>
during the first half as the Oreen-
woods team was terrific around
the hoop. At half time the few
Vanity supporters were rather dejected as they surveyed the score
board and saw the score 23-9 for
Greenwoods.
As the last half started they
took heart aa the Varsity coeds
came back and massed point after
point to win the game by a score
of 40-36.
Whatever Varsity Coach Rutn
Wilson did at half time, her team
certainly showed prowess in thc
last quarter as they mounted up
their points to win. Mearnie Summers took the lead in Varsity
scoring as she came through with
11 points but she was ably assisted by Pat Macintosh, Doreen
Campbell and the Vincent twins.
With this surprise win, Varsity
has a very good chance to take
the lead in the aeries. All other
teams are beginning to look tc
their laurels.

Varsity's second division rugby
aggregation battled to a scoreless
draw with a powerful Ex-Britannia fifteen on Saturday afternoon.
Although both teams threatened to score on several occasions,
the powerful defences of each side

crossing.
Highlight of the torrid affair
came in the second half when the
referee became a little too eager
to watch the every move of both
teams, got involved in a rush and
was brought down by Varsity's
Walt Hartrick. The unfortunate
referee is reported to be recovering

Prep
on
If everything goes well, Bob Osborne will be taking two track
teams down to Washington with
him on November 27, to run in the
meet scheduled for the 28th.
This track meet, which will run
around Green Lake in Seattle, and
is being managed by the Associated Students of the University of
Washington, will replace the annual Spokane conference which
has been held previously.
In past years, UBC has come off
with top honors, and such well
known track men as Ken MacPherson, Al Bain and Pat Minchin
have helped to bring home the
laurels. This year UBC will have
the valuable services of Boo rier-
cy who romped his way ground
last week's cross country in record breaking time.
To date only one team Jan go,
but Bob Osborne is still waiting
a reply to his request to bring two
teams, the second at UBC's expense.
Most of the Universities competing in this meet ar*. d» the
Football and Basketball conference leagues, so UBC will havt
lots of chance to show her stuff
in the Cross Country.
Soccer Teams Win
Holiday Contests
Both the Varsity and UBC soccer
elevens were victorious in their
holiday tussles. Varsity squeezed
a 2.0 victory out of Vancouver
United, and UBC wound up ahead
cf their Postal Services foes by a
count of 3-2. Jim Gold netted a
Varsity marker in the first half,
and Gordie Shepherd followed
through with a similar effort in
the second portion.
Bill McKay was the torrid toe-
man in the UBC triumph, scoring
all three of the UBC goals in a
first stanza rampage.
Saturday was a happy day for the
Varsity soccer squad when they
took a team of North Shore Merchants to the tune of 4-0 at Larwill
Park.
Leading 1-0 at the half on a goal
by Hank Sager, the Blue and Gold
squad netted three more in the
second half to take the tilt easily.
Jimmy Golds who is now with
Varsity after playing with Nanaimo, scored one of the second half
counters, Gordy Shepherd garnered another, and Dave Thompson
the third.
Varsity Suffers First Goose Egg
As Gridders Drop 13-0 Contest
Varsity Thunderbirds came within one game of a winless Conference season Saturday
afternoon, when they succumbed to the smoother Linfield College Wildcats to the tune of
a 13-0 count. Mudding through a rain-drenched gridiron, Greg Kabat's hapless charges
were subjected to their first shutout of the year, as they saw their pass offensive overshadowed by a brilliant Linfield aerial attack, and even along the soggy  turf they  were
unable to penetrate farther than their opponents' five yard marker.

THUNDERBIRD HOOP KIDS
IMPRESS VALLEY CROWD
Despite the fact that their local
favorites finished on the shy end
of the count, an enthusiastic
crowd of Valleyites were delighted
to see the UBC Thunderbirds romp
through a 49-27 exhibition match
with a representative Fraser Valley team at the Chiliiwack horticultural hall on Saturday night
Ritchie Nichol of the UBC quintette came through with a Harlem
style ot antics that had put him
in the Chiliiwack favorite column
lest year. And the spectators got
more than one chuckle over the
maple court gamboUngs of "Long
John" Forsyth, who is playing his
first season with the Thunderers.
COFFERS GROW
It was probably their remembering such Blue and Gold performances of last year that prompted the '46 Valley crowd to pour
more than |125 into the local coffers
to swell the fund for showers in
the Chiliiwack civic gymnasium.
UBC took an early lead in the
proceedings, ln spite of the fact
that the plays needed plenty of
polishing, and at the end of the
first quarter, they were leading the
home crew by a substantial nine
points.
But the Fraser Valley boys let
loose with a nlne.point barrage,
compared to the Thunderbird
three-point effort in the second
cp.nto, and the breather found the
visitors a scant three points In the
fore, with a 17-14 advantage.
KERMODE HIGH
It was chiefly the hemp hitting
of Hany Kermode, Pat McOeer
and company that made the UBC
tallies loom targe ln the last two
stanzas, and these two lads, along
with the lanky Mr. Nichol accounted for 32 of the 49 Varsity chalk-
ups.
Guiding light of the Chiliiwack
five was D. Britton, whose web-
parting activities ranked second
only to high man Kermode.

throughout, set the Linfleld machine in motion early
in the tilt, as he patrolled the scrimmage line to
launch two consecutive completed passes into the flats
and roll back the Thunderbird matting some sixty-odd
yards.
Minutes later the same Seely faded back again,
and arched a perfect strike to his lanky right end,
Charlie Bishop who galloped unmolested for a major
score. Seely himself boosted the count one point as
split the uprights in convert position.
Varsity began a sustained offensive from their
own 25 yard line midway in the second quarter, when
Dick Mitchell shook loose from scrimmage and bulled
his way 20 yards up the field for a first down. Reid
took to the air and hoisted the pigskin into the breezy
drizzle to hit Gouloubef squarely for 15 more yards.
As the crowd was getting keyed up to a touchdown
        pitch, the traditional fumble aul-
lified the Thunderbird pace.
Loping onto the gridiron after
the halftime breather, the Xiamen from McMlnnville, Oregon,
lost no time ini capturing complete mastery of the game. Half-
right claw, and a 25 yard heave
to Phil Phipps, set the Americans
in a key position.
Seely dug his cleats into armament and packed the ptftfrin
through the centre in three consecutive plays, and bulled his way
to paydirt territory at the 4 Minute mark of the third quarter. The
convert was wide. .
A bare five minutes later, Reld
sent the UBC cheer section into
ecstasies as he soared high into
the ozone to pull down a LiaAsld
pass on their 41 yard mark. A pass
Reid to Goloubef was good for 20
odd yards, and a plunge through
the left tackle brought the leather
to the nine yard stripe. Again
however, the Birds got their feathers wet, and the drive bogged
down with a slim S yards to a
touchdown.
