 Twist, dont pluck,
U.S. eagles tail
Canadians should twist the tail of the American eagle
over the U.S. stand in Viet Nam, a professor told students
in a packed Bu. 104 Thursday noon.
Dr. William Willmott, of the department of sociology
and anthropology told the Academic Activities Committee
sponsored forum: "Canadians have not only a right but a-
responsibility to question the American position in Viet

John Woods, Comm. I, a
student Food Service worker,
claims residence workers are
still not being paid a fair
"The cost of the three meals
to the resident is $1.37 and
the loss incurred because of
prepaid meal tickets should
be refunded on this basis,"
Woods said Thursday.
Woods is one of the student
workers who touched off the
Food Service hassle that resulted in wage adjustments
announced Monday.
Woods said students should
have a raise in salary which
. would return this meal cost
to them.
He suggested a worker
should get one-third of the
$1.37 in an increased wage
giving a 23-cent bonus over
the $1.12 base rate.
In answer to Woods' proposal, Food Service head Ruth
Blair said the meal cost was
only 76 cents.
The remainder covers Food
Services overhead, she said.
Miss Blair complained the
Food Services had enough
trouble feeding 2,800 residence
students and operating 11 food
outlets without having to suffer from bickering student
workers who upset the system
like a chain reaction.

As a consequence, he said,
he has notified BCSF head
Hardial Bains the group will
have to pay the regular Brock
rental fee of $80 a day.
"That's too much money,"
Bains told The Ubyssey. Bains
said his group will meet over
the weekend to consider the
possibility of forming a B. C.
Student Federation Club.
He said then the UBC branch
of the Federation would at
least be considered an AMS
organization and hence eligible
for free use of Brock.
Vance said he almost cancelled the booking altogether
"The federation came out
with a $118 full-page ad for
thte conference which listed a
$2 delegate fee;
"The advertisement didn't
mention NDC sponsors and
they didn't fill out the required co-ordination control form;
"And they didn't get confirmation from us on ; their
booking," he said.
"However, all I am doing is
insisting they pay the same
rates for Brock as other off-
campus people, since they are
not an AMS organization."
Vance said the Federation

Academic Activities Committee last Monday.

AMS president Roger McAfee blasted Thursday what
he called "lying, garbage tactics" employed by Charlie
Boylan's supporters in Wednesday's first vice-president
He charged Boylan's backers spread rumors that he
(McAfee) and incumbent Bob
Cruise bribed other potential
candidates to prevent their
contesting the first vice-presidency.
McAfee also claimed Boylan
consistently misrepresented
positions he (McAfee) had
taken in past discussions between them.
Commenting on McAfee's
charges, AMS first vice-president Bob Cruise said: "To my
knowledge, Boylan never
stooped to the level of some of
his campaigners.
"It was a good, hard-fought
campaign," he said.
(Cruise won the election
2,675 votes to Boylan's 1,698.)
In an interview, McAfee
said: "I am absolutely disgusted with the campaigning tactics used by several supporters
of defeated candidate Charlie
"I have never seen so much
garbage and so many outright
lies spread by one particular
"Some of Boylan's supporters spread rumors that incumbent Bob Cruise and myself
had bribed other candidates
to keep them from running
for   office,"   McAfee   charged.
"This is garbage and these
people knew it was garbage
when they started spreading
it," McAfee said.
McAfee challenged Boylan
to a public debate regarding
the issues he claimed Boylan
had misrepresented him on.
McAfee said it was very unfortunate that a candidate who
had so very little to offer had
to resort to such tactics to
gain support.

As I write this, it is as it

I feel fine, not drunk, not

I'm vaguely content, yet
I can't say why.
I can hear a guitar playing, two conversations, my
typewriter, a noisy refrigerator and a mouth loudly
biting a cookie.
It all started when a
group of people came to
The Ubyssey office to tell
us about a society being
formed to legalize the use
of marijuana and to try to
eradicate other obsolete
laws. We asked if they
would help us do a Page Friday article about marijuana.
We wanted to know all
about pot.
They had plans for a Vancouver Province — attended
pot smoking session, so we
made it that evening. This

came along; we went to a
Kitsilano flat.
These people showed us
how to make a joint (as a
marijuana cigarette is called), and smoked several, all
the while answering questions for reporters and posing for photographers. After
an hour or two, I asked if
I could try.
I tried, and here I sit.
I think (as someone said
tonight) pot smoking removes your automatic noise
filters. I can understand and
distinguish each noise and
coherently understand each
I notice colors and patterns more intensively than
I normally do, but not in an

I have somewhat perverse
notions about playing little

I'm now smoking a cigarette (tobacco) and drinking
a beer. My first beer tonight.
Here's how a joint is
Two cigarette papers are
fastened together. A small
amount of pot is put in —
about one-quarter the
amount of tobacco in a cigarette.
It is folded up, one end
twisted, licked well, and lit.
The people pass it around,
each taking a very deep
drag (a toke).
Then they get high —
which is pleasant, sort of
"so what"; nobody here to
night is an ogre, and no-
one is raving, and no one is
a nuisance (like someone
drunk on alcohol). A high
lasts several hours.
And no one is a criminal.
Except they all possess marijuana.
The old evil stuff.
It's bad stuff, says Det.
Sgt. John Gillies, head of
Vancouver City Police's
drug squad.
"I've never met a male
addict who wasn't a criminal or a female addict who
wasn't a prostitute," he said.
From this and more, the
picture of the marijuana
user is one of degradation,
crime, ridden by his habit,
sunk in a pit of evil.
This is the apparent picture and basic premise used
by the Vancouver City Police and Canada's legislators.
Such as Magistrate Les
Bewley, who sentences users
to six months and more.
Such as the laws, which
prescribe seven years penalty for mere possession of
marijuana and other drugs.
But others say otherwise.
They say marijuana is non-
addictive, and is no more
harmful physiologically
than tobacco.
HORST gets high on pot
"There is no evidence
that marijuana is a habit
forming drug in the sense
which the term is applied
to alcohol, opium, cocaine,
etc., or that it has any deleterious influence on the individual using it," says the
editor of The Military Surgeon, Col. James M. Phalen
of the U.S. Army.
Marijuana is a hemp-type
plant — similar in appearance to the tobacco plant.
It is about six feet tall, with
thin, saw-tooth edge leaves.
Small green flowers grow
at the top — these are the
best smoke and the top-
grade pick.
The variety reaching Vancouver is picked, dried, cut
and cured in Mexico. Much
of the world's supply is
grown in the Far East and
the Tangiers area.
When cut and cured, it's
a reddish or greenish substance looking very much
like dry tobacco or tea.
There is no discoverable
connection between marijuana and heroin.
Heroin is derived from
the seeds of the opium
poppy. It is a narcotic (marijuana isn'tt), it is addictive
(marijuana isn't), and it is
dangerous  (marijuana isn't).
". . . it may be observed
that there appears to be
medical opinion that marijuana is less habit forming
and less toxic to the human
system than is tobacco,"
says Justice Schauer of the
California  Supreme Court.
Narcotics put you to sleep
— I've heard no evidence
that marijuana does.
There's more quotes —
quotes in favor of marijuana
from doctors, armies, and
courts of law. Each balanced
by quotes from police and
other courts of law, describing (as Det. Sgt. Gillies
does) the pothead (mark
juana user) as a deviant
criminal and a little thick
in the head.
It depends on whose authority is the most reliable.
A user said, "The key
seems to be here: marijuana
users, all those I know, are
reasonably bright and apparently normal. They break
no laws, except the law of
possessing marijuana. They
do no terrible thing, aside
from breaking this law. But
they are a police problem,
and a problem costing enormous amounts of time and
money to remove.
"Legalize marijuana, and
the problem mis gone," he
The only argument against
legalization is that pushers
of heroin use marijuana as
a thrill-teaser and then they
incite the victim to try the
greater kick of heroin.
Heroin pushing is a most
profitable  business.
When a user is hooked,
the price is jumped, forcing
him to steal to support his
So here's the real problem. Marijuana alone cannot lead to any such situation because it is not addictive, and the user is not

But they certainly lack
artistic discipline.
Their freedom from convention lies in their behavior more than their art, and
their celebrated spirit of
revolt seems to me to be
oddly complacent.
An artistic movement
such as the AAG that cuts
itself off from tradition as
the AAG does has to depend
largely on the legitimacy of
its approach to its own art.
In the 1940's the AAG attitude was strongly influenced by graphic art: Cubism, surrealism and other
1920-ish ideas.
• •      •
Pre-1950 was, in fact, the
true apres-garde period.
However I date the distinc-
t i v e American movement
from 1950, when the principal influence became the
dogma of revolt, not as a
means to an end, but as a
valuable state of mind, one
which clarified issues and
generated new concepts.
In general this kind of
approach encourages poor
discipline and disorganized
thinking in an artist, but we
tend, or are encouraged, to
excuse all this if the motive
of the revolt is honorable.

In reply, the AAG filmmakers are taking the appropriate liberties. There is
little question that they are
a disorganized and self-indulgent mob.
One recalls Brakhage,
two years ago, showing a
fearsome collection of films
ranging from moderately
interesting t o atrociously
corny. And standing there
quite convinced that every
last tone, (and indeed everything he ever made), was
worth showing.

Yet we are obliged to ignore this, because Brack-

I once had some hope for

seemed to be interested in
some of the less obvious aspects of Beat at a time when
Beat had a future.

Once eagain we are expected to excuse Mekas because all this slush is in a

Now I have a suggestion.
I think the revolt is phony.
The cause exists, yes. The
opponent is a pitiless authority, yes. What bothers me
is that in a real rebellion,
the rebels stick together, but
these heroes are divided
into winners and losers.

do you have to be, how careful, how conformist, to be

I'm certain that history is
full of genuine rebels that
no one has ever heard of—
because they really were
rebels against a pitiless
authority, and they died.

And nobody cares about

I'm not apologetic at all
for suspecting that the rebel

There are eight other male

a small book by Irving Wallace. It's entitled Square
Pegs, and, if you close your

creep in.

People like Timothy Dexter make this an unusual
book. Timothy Dexter, yes,
Timothy Dexter. An innocuous little man, he has to be
the struggling English 100
student's answer to a prayer.
It was Dexter, you see,
who had his own little book
published in 1802, an admittedly lusterless period of
American literature. He
added a bit of that old ka-
pow by writing a rather
unusual book. It was one
long sentence, or rather no
sentence at all.
His effort, A Pickle for
the Knowing Ones, had not
one bit of punctuation in it
at all. Further, there seemed
to be no meaning — a great
stream of consciousness perhaps — and no rekognizable
speling except bi fonetics.

But Dexter was no fool,
he recognized his mistake
immediately, and 36 years
later added a page which
cleared up any problems the
reader might have had. He
merely added a page of
punctuation marks for the
reader to insert where,
when, and how he damn
well pleased.

Lincoln what to do, and

Wallace's book is the
ideal bedside reader. Each
character is dealt with in
one chapter and easily read
in that time just before you
need pencils to keep your
eyelids open.
His characterizations are
not cruel, but gentle and

A glissandi, a
Barenboim and
thou makes for
a glompy concert
Daniel Barenboim, 22
year old pianist, is quite a
showman, judging from last
Monday evening's performance with the Vancouver
Symphony. His playing of
Beethoven's Emperor Concerto lacked inspiration and
seemed   cold,  although  evi
dence of a faultless technique and attention to detail made some compensation. The rhythmically stilted beginning of the final
movement was distressing,
but in repetition the passage
improved as the pianist took
his cues from the orchestra
instead of vice-versa. Occasionally the orchestra overpowered the pianist; generally the two elements blended successfully.
Weber's Overture to Der
Frieschutz began the evening pleasantly, providing
contrast to the exciting
Scheherazade b y Rimsky-
Korsakoff. The orchestra
conducted by Meredith
Davies deserves praise for
their high quality of musicianship. I n Scheherazade,
the sweeping glissandi on
the harp coupled with the
passionate violin melodies
made a pleasing combination; contrasted with colorful answering effects between the brass and woodwinds. The orchestra captured the oriental mood
well, carrying the audience
into The Arabian Nights'
imaginary world.
Bell dings the

My review of a Collegium
Musicum presentation drew
some public criticism from
music students. I should like
to reply to their attacks,
which are partly unjustified.
First of all, my original
article was rather drastically edited, and clarity and
continuity were partially
destroyed; moreover, several vital omissions radically
altered its overall aspect.
However, I do not seek
cover behind the actions of
• •      •
In the original review, I
should merely have written
that, in my honest opinion,
Mr. Piltz gave a lousy lecture. I believe any one present at the concert (or whatever you wish to call it)
would agree to that. He
rambled, digressed, and so
knotted himself up in details (of no interest musically or musicologically) that
I despaired of his ever extricating himself. His frequent asides were of significance to faculty members
only (i.e., they were personal remarks and rather out
of place).
• •      •
I realize and approve of
the aims of Collegium Musicum — to give lecture concerts dealing in depth with
some lesser known composer
— but on Jan. 22, these
aims were obscured through
poor preparation of the lecture half of the presentation. This was unfortunate,
since the music was interesting, pleasant, and up to
standard in performance.

Dobson songs
sung similarly
but each song
so sincere
C a n a dian folksongstress,
Bonnie Dobson, is appearing
at the Ark. She gained much
of her experience in the
States and was especially influenced by Joan Baez but
when she does Baez numbers they are noticably different. One good thing is
that she used a goodly number of Canadian folk songs
and sings almost every type
of folk or blues. Also, she
seems so sincere about
every song that she sings;
on the other hand, each
song sounds as though it
were sung in the same way.
Another female songstress
is Karen James who is playing the Bunkhouse. Karen is
the hostess of a children's
show on local TV and by
this association sings good
songs for children, like "The
Unicorn". She plays a 12-
string guitar and it is this
that makes her rather un-
que. But it is the songs that
are accompaned by a 6-
string that are her absolute
best. I must say bravo for a
new version of "Blue", but
it was too fast moving and
non-sensuous for an old traditional blues number.
Hamlet no more
as play leans
toward action
What in hell is Hamlet
all about? Well — there's
this prince, see . . .The
action approach to Hamlet
has a great deal to be said
for it, and it does not exclude the possibility of a
sensitive and profound interpretation of the main
character. It is certainly
better than siezing a few
lines and saying "This is it!
("Hamlet is a man who cannot make up his mind" —
Olivier. Nonsense!) Or the
vogue of insisting that the
important fact is that Hamlet has a great big Oedipus
John Brockington's production of the play, now at
the Freddy Wood, sticks to
the action and leaves the
psychologists outside the
theatre, where they probably belong.
The set, undoubtedly the
mainstay of the show, is an
intriguing piece of sculpture
placed on a turntable and
wound about with wonderful flights of stairs. It is
pierced by arches and integrated perfectly with stairs
leading down into the orchestra pit. The director
moves  the   characters  over
under   and  around   it   in   a
meaningful   way.
The supporting cast is
good. For once, Polonius is
not overplayed. An excellent performance by Robert Orchard. Patricia Lud-
wick's Ophelia is fragile
and charming and a good
strong Laertes is provided
by Eric Schneider.
Peter Brockington as Hamlet is often clear and moving, especially in the solilo-
quys (which are given an
honest, and therefore very
fresh, reading), but at other
times a petulant quality of
voice and gesture mars his
performance and weakens
the play. He is not aided by
his costumes which are
skimpy and unbecoming.
Starched collars for Hamlet?
The main task the company has taken for itself
is to make the story clear.
This has been achieved, but
the production lacks fire
and, in the last half of the
play, even pace. There are
many times during the play
when the reality of the situation and the characters is
striking. Hamlet's first
greeting of Horatio, for instance, and the oath on the
sword scene, all.of Polonius'
long speeches, Rosencrantz
and Guildenstern exchanging dirty looks . . . many
moments . . . but not enough.
Depth of characterization
has been sacrificed to polish. The pressures of short
rehearsal time often force
Canadian directors into this
kind of expedient and slick
approach to a play. If they
are doing "The Moon is Blue'
I couldn't care less. But
with good plays like Hamlet
I think it's time they resisted the silly argument of
time, money, and all that
with some solid down to
earth realistic statement
like: "Our company is now
in rehearsal for Hamlet.
We'll produce it in about
six months — if it's ready."

Jonathan's murder of his
stamps, books, coins, Rosalinda, and the flytraps; and
Dad's fall out of his closet.
Madame Rosepetal starts
slowly — she hasn't the
proper command of the bellboys, and the first scene
doesn't happen as Kopit intended it should. But she
winds up to a tremendous
delivery of her 20 minute
speech to Commodore Rose-
above. Twenty minute
speeches are very difficult
for any actor.
The bumbling Roseabove
is, I think, miscast. He does
not look or act as Kopit
seems to intend in his original — he is too silly, and
looks too foppish. Madame
Rosepetal's actions don't affect him as they ought; he is
not bewildered enough and
starts too low to be properly
brought down.
Jonathan was at his best
alone. He has several dialogue-less scenes with his
telescope and the rest of the
living room — he succeeds
admirably. He stutters most
dramatically. And Rosalie
was terrific throughout. She
has a wild, mad role; she
does it full justice.
Francisco has interpreted

original is very clear anyway — and the motherhood
theme reaches the audience.

It will treble the library's collection.
In the words of John B. Macdonald, the fellowships
"will put us into competition with the top U.S. colleges such as Yale."
It is a grant so attuned to the needs and recommendations expressed in Guideposts to Innovation, the report
of the president's report on academic goals, that the
report might have inspired it .
The two recommendations that come to mind:
"... that the university seek funds to permit graduate
students to continue their program of studies throughout the year," and "that the university continue to give
high priority to the expansion and improvement of
library facilities."
There is no question that a trebled library collection
and increased fellowships will put UBC into the competition for top students.
But another recommendation of the president's committee also comes to mind: "that the university seek
funds to permit the appointment of distinguished professors to initiate new research and foster emerging
creative work."
Within limits, increased library facilities and graduate student grants will serve as a magnet for topflight professors.
But still there remains the hard fact of scholarly
existence — food for thought, no matter how abundant,
does little to supplement a meager salary.
We suggest that this should be foremost in the
minds of this university's advocates as they put their
case before those in government and private industry
who dabble in the game of university finances.
We suggest that it should be foremost in the mind
of the Board of Governors when faculty salaries are
We suggest also that the university delve into its
jumbled promotion procedures.
If faculty are offered incentives comparable to those
now being offered students, UBC might yet become a
worthwhile place to study—and to work.
They might even bring a little closer Dr. Macdonald's
dream of a Yale tucked away in the southwest corner
of Canada.
H. R. MacMillan has certainly done everything he
can be expected to. It would surely be unreasonable to
expect him to pay for more faculty, too.
That job is UBC's.

We have money for formats.
Poverty-stricken   students?
No . . . but why should we
We are considered safe financial risks. Our status as
UBC students guarantees this.
We can usually walk into a
bank, a credit office or a student loan agency on our promise of good marks and good
summer jobs, just because we
are students.
Why be worried?
Our society is built around
So as we study and play
with gay abandon on borrowed funds, let us remember:
We're investigating not only
in our education but also in
our credit ratings.
Ten years from now we'll
be glad we have both.

The roommate's parents
came to town last weekend.
I was all for getting the
hell right out, moving them,
and us, into a hotel.
"Oh, no," he said. "We'll
spend a few days cleaning
the place up, then we'll move
out for a few days, and then
we'll come home just before
they get here."
"Come on," I said. "Got a
shovel  or  a  flame-thrower?"
"It won't be that bad. Really. And you've got the double
bed, so you can move onto
the couch."
"Come on," I said.
Not daunted in the slightest, he requested that I go
borrow a vacuum cleaner
from the lady on the top
floor. Undaunted, I went upstairs, waited a judicious few
minutes in the hall, and came
down again.
"She's not home," I said.
"Bull," he yelled, and ran
upstairs himself.
While I vacuumed the living room, he tackled the
dishes. Then he vacuumed the
living room while I took a
turn at the dishes. Then he
did some more dishes he
found under the chesterfields.
And so into the rest of the
We threw two huge boxes
of papers out. And then burned two bundles of newspapers.
We made $7 on beer bottles.
Then we spent $2.50 of the
$7 on laundry, and the rest
on blankets at the dry-cleaners.
We don't keep house too
well, I guess.
We moved out for a few
days. To let the dust settle
again and to avoid messing
the place up some more.
And we locked the door,
so our friends wouldn't use
our lovely, clean, neat pad.
His parents arrived while
we were at class, which we
knew they would, and we
left them the key on a nail
When we got home, his
mother was scrubbing the
She said our dishes were
"And so are your stove and
fridge," she said.
"They were not," we chor-
oused. But she washed them
So, I moved out for the
three days they were here.
They've been gone a week
I got a letter today from
my mother.
She and the old guy are
coming to town for a few
days next week.

a matter of pride
UBC's Thunderbird  basketball  team  has  been   causing
curious rumbling noises among American collegiate sports
circles in the northwest.
The UBC Thunderbirds
travel to Victoria Saturday to
play the Victoria Rugby Union
Reps, Victoria Crimson Tide,
in a preliminary McKechnie
Cup match.
The game has been postponed once because of unplayable
grounds in Victoria, but it is
expected that this game will
go Saturday for sure.
The winner of the Victoria-
UBC match will meet the winner of the other preliminary
game, which has Nor-Wests,
an all-star team from the
North Shore and Richmond,
playing  Vancouver Reps.
The ultimate winner of these
playdowns will take possession
of the McKechnie Cup. All
games in the playdowns are
sudden-death  affairs.
The Thunderbirds go into
this game with an impressive
record of fifteen wins and one

Revitalization of campus
cricket will be the topic of a
meeting open to all, at noon
today in Chemistry 250.
At present, there are two
separate organizations at UBC:
the University Occasionals—
composed mostly of staff—and
the Varsity Cricket Club, both
of whom compete in the first
division of the City League.
The Occasionals captured second place last year and received awards for the best wicket-
keeper and the best bowler of
the season.
To ensure UBC's illustrious
cricket reputation is maintained, an effort is being made to
regroup all activities into a
single organization under one
solid management. All those
who are interested in cricket
are urged to attend the meeting.
First of all, U.S. sports buffs
ask: "Where the hell is the
University of B.C.?"
Then they ask, "How can a
team of Canadians from a
school which does not provide
athletic scholarships keep
beating our handpicked All-
American boys?"
Answering these queries
UBC coach Peter Mullins says,
"It's simply a matter of pride,
we like winning and my players realized at the start of the
season they could beat the
tough American colleges only
if they hustled every minute
of every game."
As a matter of fact they've
done it so well that for the
first time since the late 'forties
UBC is in a position to end its
season with a winning record
against U.S.  Colleges.
By winning their games
against Cascade college tonight and tomorrow night at
8:30 in the Memorial Gym the
Birds can make this feat a
matter  of  record.
Currently their record
against American colleges
with whom they have four
games left this season is eight
wins against six losses. The
Birds over all record is 11
wins, seven losses.
UBC defeated Cascade 86-72
a few weeks ago in Portland.
But Cascade has three times
scored over 100 points per
game this season and Mullins
men will have to have their
favourite defensive weapon,
the full court press, working
at its best to control the offensive minded Cascade forwards.
Latest statistics show that
UBC's Bob Barazzuol and
Gene Rizak are having a tight
battle for individual scoring
honours. Barazzuol is averaging 13.9 points per game compared with 13.7 for Rizak.

UBC Sailing team placed
first in the Northwest Inter-
Collegiate Yacht Racing Association Regatta at Seattle.
Amassing 90 points, UBC outdistanced their second place
rivals in the field of five
teams, by 25 points.
WITH GRACE AND BEAUTY on ice, all that remains to be sewn up is victory when the
Women's Skating team meets U. of Alberta and U. of Saskatchewan this weekend
in Thunderbird arena. The WCIAA competition features Figures and Dance on Friday,
and Optional Routines Saturday, with both events going from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

At home in Memorial Gym,
Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to
12:30 p.m. UBC hosts a
WCIAA gymnastic tournament. U. of Saskatchewan will
be defending the title they
have held for the past five
years against U. of Alberta
and UBC.
Thunderette chances of an
upset are this year rated the
best ever. The calibre of individuals on the team is high.
Team includes Bonnie Dertrell
PE II, a Canadian representative in the 1962 World Championships; Fern Brynjolfson
PE I, all-round winner of the
1964 B.C. High School Meet;
and Marie Ramsey PE III, all-

meet and junior all-round winner of the 1962 Western Canadian  Championships.

Over at Thunderbird Arena,
the same three teams compete
in WCIAA figure skating
championships. Figures and
Dance go Friday from 1:30-
4:30 p.m., optional routines
are Saturday at the same times.
In last year's competition at
Edmonton, UBC walked off
with  three of the top places.
The ski bum
Tough competition for skiers
The women's ski team, an
inspiring element for the men
in many a training session
this season, will be competing
against more than 20 teams
in the Pacific North-West Inter-Collegiate Women's ski
meet today (Feb. 12) and tomorrow (Feb. 13) in Schweitzer Basin, Idaho.
The team has been working
out twice a week since September, and on weekends has
been skiing in local races or
training on Mt. Seymour to
warm up for this main meet
of the season.
Coached by Liz Bilodeau,
formerly Liz Green, the team
should run strongly against
teams from the United States
and other colleges in Canada.
On the first team are Leslie Anglin and Sue Workman,
both holdovers from last
year, and Charlotte Kerr and
Barbara Deane, a former
Canadian national racer.
Sandy Hamilton and Janet
Harrison are returnees for
the second team, with newcomers Shirley Black and
Mikey Chataway rounding
out the entry.
The Giant Slalom will be
held today, with the Slalom
being run on Saturday.
Barbara Deane will leave
Saturday night for Rossland
in B.C. to enter the second
day of the Western Canadian
Alpine competitions on Sunday, Feb. 14.
The men's Thunderbird
team decided to compete in
the Western Canadian championships, rather than attend
the inter-collegiate meet in
McColl, Idaho this week at
considerably greater time
and expense.
The competition at the
Western Canadian Finals
promises to be keen, as many
entries have been submitted
from the National team and
class "A" racers from B.C.,
Alberta and the United
The members of the team
left in groups on Wednesday
and Thursday night, and will
return next monday.

Two things about Pimm's: easy to serve,
and a taste you'll enjoy. Just pour into a
tall glass and add ice and fill up with your
favourite light mix. You can add a slice of
cucumber, a piece of lemon, or a sprig of
mint to make the traditional Pimm's, famous throughout the world. But don't
bother unless you're in the mood. A new
generation is rediscovering Pimm's... and
enjoying every moment or it.
