MAC not
my show'
Charges that the Men's Athletic Committee is a "one-man
show" and "mcj2meetent,"
were denied yesterday by the
director of the school of physical education.
R. F. Osborne also a member
of the MAC, termed the charges
by student councillors "absolutely erroneous and bordering
on slander." ■

investigate MAC operations

Bernie Papke criticized the
committee's operations. He said
Osborne was running a one-man
Some other councillors said
they agreed with Papke and described the committee as incompetent.
"These charges are on insult
to faculty members," Osborne
Athletic director R. J. Phillips called the charges a slam
at Dean A. W. Matthews (head
of the committee) and Osborne.
"Mr. Osborne is a valuable
member of the committee, and
he positively does not make it
a one-man show," Phillips said.
"The comments  are  a  knock
at   Dean   Matthews,   who   has
given   his  time   unstintingly  to
the committee," he added.
Councillors also charged that
the athletic department went
ahead and spent money before
getting   approval  from  MAC.
Phillips termed MAC the
most democratic student-faculty
committee  on the campus.
The committee consists of
three faculty members, one alumni representative and four
students. The chairman casts
his vote only in the event of a
Chairman Matthews said he
would make no comment on
the councillors' charges until
he receives an official statement
from the AMS.
"I can't comment oi) what is
reported in the paper," he said,
"but if the AMS has named an
official committee they'll have
my  full  co-operation."
Osborne said he felt the
statements made by the councillors were "very poorly
thought out."
Both Phillips and Osborne
said they felt councillors Papke
and Shepard were wrong in
making any judgement on MAC

Ryerson high and dry
over cornerstone search
TORONTO (CUP)—Ryerson students will resume the
search this year for an old Ryerson Hall cornerstone reputed
to contain $10,000 in old coins and stamps.
The newest development in the search, which started last
year, came when the student newspaper, The Ryersonian,
learned the name of }a gjaduateiof the old Normal school, now
Ryerson Hall. Rye students hope the woman will be able to
give them a clue to the-, exact,, whereabouts of the stone.
Last spring six students, sparked by a news story that
the cornerstone to the old building was missing, began excavating under the hall. They found old bricks, broken pipe
and some RCAF flashes—but no stone.

Prior-Palmer, first speaker
for the affirmative, said it is
impossible for Britain to live
20 miles Irom Europe and not be
involved with it.
"If England is to survive in
the context of her geography,
the only thing for her to do is
to get into the Common Market," he said.
Hebb, asserted the future for
Britain would be bleak if she
joined the ECM.
The change from the present
system to the metric system
would cause great difficulties,
he said.

"The type of goods that the

said. "But for a country like
Canada, where the economy is
not in such good shape, there will
probably be problems."
Raymond said it would be
folly for Britain to join an organization which had so little
political stability.
"We are asking Britian, who
was responsible for handing
over political freedom and personal responsibility to large portions of the world, to join a
group which has not yet gained
political  insight."   he  said.

Commerce Undergraduate Society president Lloyd Martin
had said UBC stood to gain
nothing in return for risking the
estimated $3,000 cost of producing the magazine.
Thursday's Ubyssey incorrectly reported the council vote to
have UBC stay in NFCUS as
9-3. It was 12-4.
It also said council had approved a mandate on production of the NFCUS magazine "to

read, "to UBC."

Add a grain of salt and stir
Student councillor Bernie Papke revealed
Tuesday what has been table-talk for more
than two years.
There's something wrong with UBC athletics.
Papke charged that the Men's Athletic Committee, a student-faculty board which controls
UBC's athletic program, is incompetent and
dominated by one man.
Other councillors supported him when he
said MAC is a de post facto committee. "The
meetings are called for those other than students," says AMS president Doug Stewart, a
full-time committee member.
Similar charges have been made before.
They have been made many times by persons intimately connected with athletics.
They have been made by coaches, athletes,
and student officials.
Few of them have been made for the record. Few people will make their feelings public for reasons political or personal.
It is time some charges were made for the
The fact is, UBC athletics is reaching a
It has been rumored this crisis may result
in the' administration taking complete control
of athletics. The rumors are not idle, and they
have not been circulated by idle people.
But no one seems to want to tackle the
problem before it comes to a head.
The athletic department this summer was
the scene of what was thought to be a major
organizational shakeup.
Now, however, we're back where we started. The shakeup appears to have been nothing
more thari a change in basketball coaches.
People on the MAC say they don't know what
the present situation is.
It's obvious the present situation isn't good.
The Ubyssey feels the MAC and the students would do well to consider Papke's charges seriously.
It is not often an outsider gets a close look
at,MAC's business.—MH
More concern needed for safety
Do we have to wait until someone gets
killed before problems of traffic safety on
campus are solved?
We don't think so and neither do the boys
from Fort Camp.
They have taken the responsibility upon
their own shoulders to get something done on
Marine Drive to protect the lives of 300 students who cross the road every morning during
the rush hour^ traffic.
They have purchased paint for crosswalks,
they have painted speed limit signs. But they
cannot do a thing until they have tried the
bureaucratic system which is part of our university.
In previous editorials, we have stressed the
need for the gates to be moved back from the
intersection of University Boulevard and
Blanca as a safety factor. This was never done.
Letters to the Editor:
Now we advocate that not only should
the gates be moved but lights should be installed  at  the  intersection.
The hazard has been supplemented this
year because traffic coming off campus has
been shuttled to Chancellor Boulevard more
than in previous years. People who want to
get onto Tenth Ave. must turn at the corner
of Blanca.
Another perennial complaint of this paper
and the University has been alleviated this
year due to the closure of the Main Mall to
We feel this was a move in the right
direction, safetywise, and now that the parking
and traffic pressure has eased we suggest a
concentrated effort be made by Gen. Sir Ouvry
and his department to cut down the chances
of a fatal accident on this campus.

The Ubyssey,
I would like to comment on
your editorial, "Freedom—but
watch what you say." It appears we have two choices
concerning the control of
what could be subversive activities on campus. One is to let
anyone promote what he
wishes without any form of
surveillance and trust to public opinion to discern what is
good and bad for our political
system. The other is to have
"undercover consciences" and
to infringe upon our right of
free speech to a degree.
I prefer the second for the
following reasons. Firstly
democracies, as you point out,
are inefficient; totalitarian
systems are efficient. For this
reason we will have to meet
efficiency with efficiency if
we wish to retain our political system.
Secondly, I think most will
agree it is wise to keep under
observation such organizations as the Communist party
in Canada and perhaps Rockwell's Nazi group in the
If this is a good policy, why
should universities be exempt
from' surveillance, especially
since the intelligensia is
drawn to them? There may be
certain disadvantages to the
BCMP's gathering and filing
information, as were pointed
But nothing is perfect, so
we must choose the lesser of
two evils. Perhaps keeping an
eye on communists, anarchists
and radical right-wingers now
is better than trying to combat
at a disadvantage the results
of their work later. Very few
complain when an undercover
agent turns up evidence on a
narcotics ring; why should we
when evidence is collected on
subversive and disruptive elements? Both are menaces to
our society.
Feeling we should take the
risk "to have enough confidence that Canadian citizens
—and especially students—
believe in the system and will
defend it without the help of
'undercover consciences,'" is
fine theoretically, but unrealistic practically.
Your second editorial helped
show this very well; the lack of
interest in topical lectures and
matters of transcendent importance — and especially
among students—was noted.
"The price of liberty is
eternal vigilance" is a very
true saying. Many inefficient
democracies have had very
sad fates.
Let's not be one.

Students rehash world over vile brews
Every problem this confusing world now faces has been
solved at least twice '— once
at the intellectual table in
the caf, and once in the Georgia taproom.
Similar institutions at universities around the world
fulfil similar functions, for
if students possess a common
denominator it is their propensity for reconstructing society over some form or other
of vile brew.
•      •      •
It is axiomatic that any
upperclassman capable of
speech can express opinions
on democrarcy, communism,
religion and sex, if nothing
That these opinions are fundamentally little different
from those of 95 per cent of
his classmates is immaterial.
He can at least burble with
his friends and bandy words
with the five per cent if and
when he comes in contact
with them.
All too often we take the
mainstreams of thought for
granted and start sniping at
the democratic mass, but
eventually something happens
to bring a shocked awareness
that what to us seems reasonable and natural is not universally accepted.
It is a tragic commentary
on the racial problems with
which our southern neighbor
is grappling that violence and
civil disobedience seem unremarkable when one very
brave man — with considerable federal support—dares
to tear down a social barrier
that is an insult to his race.
This neither shocks nor
surprises us. Little Rock made
us expect it.
We can and do sympathize
with American growing pains,
and we lend our full moral
support to James Meredith in
the "Ole Miss" dispute.

But we must look further
for implications that touch
our own social group, predicated as it is on quite different concepts than those of the
Mississippi students.

shocked and puzzled to find
considerable antipathy to colored students in the Point
Grey area revealed by a Ubyssey survey.
This indicates that the solid
rock of righteousness from
which we condemn Mississippi racism is set in a marsh
of quasi-bigotry that we cannot ignore.
While the enlightened and
equalitarian attitude of the
campus is a promising portent, we must face the reality
that it is not an atmosphere
which stretches unblemished
throughout even the city,
much less the country.
The Ubyssey has hesitated
to comment editorially on
the Meredith situation because it seems futile to reiterate the sentiments so universally held on this campus. We
can only hope that God will,
indeed, forgive them their
trespasses, though they know
damn well what they do.
But we think it important to remember, while condemning the deep south, that
our own lily-white soul casts
a disturbing shadow. Friday, October 12, 1962

Salute to a young Miss     *F,rst casf out the beam
From The Maneater
University of Missouri,
Columbia, Missouri
ED. NOTE: This story by Editor Larry Fuller
and Associate Editor Martin Frost is being
published in today's paper because The Man-
eater feel that wire services have not told
the full story of the Mississippi incident from
the  student  point of  view.
"I'm still proud of our student body and
only a very small percentage of the rioters
were University students."
The speaker was a weary co-ed named
Sidna  Brower.
The thing that made this co-ed different
from thousands of others was that she was
speaking from the Kappa Kappa Gamma
house on the University of Missisippi campus
and as editor of her school paper, she has become spokesman for her fellow students in a
university that is a centre of attraction in
every corner of the world.
Outsiders enter scene
"The Mississippian came out with an
extra today," she told The Maneater in a
long-distance telephone interview late Monday night. "I ran a front page editorial urging students not to riot, asking outsiders to
go home and stressing that we're still a part
ol the union."
Sidna said that a few of the outsiders were
left in downtown Oxford Monday morning,
but most of them had already left.
A recent article in The MIssissippian
quoted one woman as saying "I came all the
way from Texas to see this."
She was not alone. College students
throughout the South as well as adulfs and
high school students converged on Oxford en
"The strain has been unbelievable," Sidna
said, "and a grev?t many of the regular students have gone home till this thing is over."
Siie said that in her sorority house only
11 out of 24 girls living in the house were
there Monday.
"The whole student body of 5,000 is com
pletely shocked and didn't realize it would
come to what it did," Sidna added. "The
campus looked like a deserted battlefield
this morning."
But classes went on as scheduled except
for in a few rooms where lingering tear gas
forced classes to be cancelled.
"I've only been to four classes since school
started a week ago Friday," the editor commented. "Many of the students stayed home
in dorms, fraternity and sorority houses
instead of going to class."
According to Sidna, instructors attempted
to continue classes on a natural level.
"But, it was strained," she added.
"It all started out as a curiosity," she
pointed out. "A few University students did
get riotous, but many left."
Reports 'distorted'
One of Sidna's main worries is the distortion being carried on the wire services and
other mass media.
Monday morning the St. Louis Globe-
Democrat screamed, in banner headlines, that
2,500 students had rioted Sunday evening.
"It's been the same few students who have
been stirring up the trouble and most of the
rioters have been from all over and not just
university students," she said.
A scholarship fund was started Monday
morning in memory of Paul Guihard, a
French correspondent for The London Sketch,
killed during the riots Sunday. The fund was
begun by Jimmy Liddell, advertising manager of The Mississippian, who was Guihard's-
escort during his first few days on campus.
"We received $100 in funds today with
much more pledged now by fraternities and
sororities and newspaper men in Oxford," she
"We were told at a press conference
Monday by Justice Department officials they
are not planning to remove James Meredith
from the University now that he has registered," Sidna said in reply to a question on
whether she felt he would complete the
James Meredith is not the only one being turned away;
you don't have to go to Oxford, Mississippi to find prejudice
against a colored skin. So let's not feel too smug, We haven't
licked this problem here in enlightened Alberta.
Our Asian or African students go out to find accommodations in private homes. They are turned away, sometimes
bluntly, more often with a lame excuse:
"I don't mind colored students but my husband wouldn't
like it" or " . . .the other tenants wouldn't like it," or " . . .
the neighbors wouldn't like it." Anything but the blunt truth:
bigotry Objections to spicy cooking. Objections to un-Canadian
dress. As if these things were dangerous, when actually they
are delightful.
It is sad when we cling so rigidly to our blinders that
we can't see our own good and accept it.
How extensive is the problem? It is not extensive in terms
of numbers—not yet—our foreign student population still
numbers only in the hundreds, and there are people on
campus who have been concerned to prevent unpleasant
contacts. -
But this is not enough, for there are still some colored
students, particularly second and third year undergraduates,
who go out to find their own accommodations. As long as our
friends meet rudeness, as long as they find hypocrisy, as long
as they meet fear and resentment, we have a problem. And
they do meet these.
That many are sheltered from the storm by some of us
who cared enough to help is commendable. But it does not
eliminate the problem, only temporarily avoids it. For the
problem is one of public attitude. The fact still remains that
when our colored students do go out on their own into the
streets of our city, they are turned away without valid reason
by embarrassed landlords. Not always, certainly, but too often.
Once is too often. And it happens repeatedly.
Another girl invited a colored boy to her home for a
week, and the parents promptly invited him to leave—again
no reason given.
A girl reports that the day after a colored friend visited
her room a note appeared on the bathroom door: "Approved
guests only."
This sort of thing is inexcusable. It is pure ugliness. All
three cases betray an emotional infantilism known as —
PREJUDICE, heavily laced with fear. One example displays
blatant dishonesty; another sickly hypocrisy. Rarely will an
individual come out from behind his excuses and make his
position plain.
End of the beginning
The surrender of Governor Barnett and the decision to
allow James Meredith to enter the all-white University of
Mississippi will be regarded, and rightly, as a triumph of justice
over prejudice and unreasoning fanaticism. Yet the victory
is not complete. Capitulation came "only at the hands of
superior military force, as it did ninty-seven years ago at
Appomattox Court House. In his statement released last night
the Governor expressed only regret and a determination to
continue his war against integration, even calling upon God
to "have mercy on the souls" of the Federal authorities.
Predictably, and disappointingly to those of us who hold
the over-complacent view that university students will always
be found on the side of liberalism and political maturity,
•the latest turn of events has led to an intensification of
violence, to a battle beween hysterical white students and
U.S.  Marshalls  armed  with  teargas bombs.
These are regrettable facts. They reveal that the battle
for social justice in the southern United States is far from being
Won. At best, as Winston Churchill once said, in another
connection, it is not the beginning of the end but perhaps
the end of the beginning. The adherence by a majority of
white southerners to ideas which we must regard as reactionary, inhumane and unreasonable may-continue for a generatior.
or more. Elsewhere on this page appears a report on thi
south by. a Canadian student which reveals how widespread
they are.
The enrollment of one Negro student will be a hollow
triumph if the process begun by legal coercion is not completed by education, if the white half of Mississippi does not
learn to respect the rights of the Negro half.
Much has been said in connection with this and similar
crises about the effect on America's reputation, particularly
in the African and Asian countries where a Caucasian majority
does not prevail. In this connection let it never be forgotten
that in deciding to enforce the principles of human equality
in the face of widespread opposition, the United States chose
the course of integrity, but the course that inevitably led to
difficulty, violence and embarrassment. Surely that is the
ultimate test of liberal  democracy.
Down Tobacco Road
From The McGill Daily
McGill University
Montreal, P.O.
Perhaps the most striking
aspect of a visit to the South
is  the  neaj-completeness with
which it fulfills one's stereo-
1yped expectations. Speaking
lo principals of white and
negro high' schools, inhabitants
of small towns, poor whites,
and negro laborers does not
present surprises in terms of
ideas, though it is often experi-
entially shocking.
Deep South
It is that segment of the
Deep South—the sma.ll town—
which may prove most recalcitrant to integration that I
shall briefly and impression-
istically sketch in this space.
From the moment we left
our car, an atmosphere of the
"closed society," of the tribe,
seemed not so much to surround as to attack us, emanating from every object, animate
or not, in that dismal and worn
Alabama town, labelled exoti-
cally Talladega.
The entire town is dominated, geographically and psychologically, by the combination
police-station and court-house.
We had verified the fact that
various incidents in connection
with   voter-registration   drives
had recently occurred. But our
generally successful technique
of gaining information about
fact and opinion almost failed
us here. Instantly we were
recognized as outsiders—and
were unable to get anywhere
near the area of our interest
i.e., race relations, without
having our interlocutors immediately clam up. Nothing,
as they seemed to say, could
ever happen to ruffle the sunlit
peece of our morally irrepre-
hensible town.
We eventually involved two
men in conversation: both
salesmen in men's haberdashery, one middle-aged, the other
a student at a nearby college.
In these men, too, the defence
mechanism was activated at
once. Northerners were incapable of understanding "our"
problems    and    people.
No principles
The younger man found it
extremely difficult to speak
on the subject. He found doing
so painful and was totally at
a loss to formulate any principle expressing his belief in
segregation, except to say that
this was the way he had been
brought up. He mentioned
myths we had heard continually: Negroes are dirty; they
are drunkards; they are lazy.
But if a highly educated, clean-
cut   Negro   were  to  be  work
ing with him, he would, confusingly, quit.
The older man spoke highly of the abilities of Negro students and their readiness to
enter the best universities. He
seemed a reasonable, moderate
man. But one oi the last things
he said to us was: "If the federal government tried to integrate schools in this town, I'd
be the first to go out and burn
a church."
one of the gimmicks which
mf.de conversation possible
was to let it be known froia
the start that we were Canadians, not Yankees).
Resentment against "Northern agitators" in regard to
freedom rides and sit-ins, support Dr. King's Albany Movement, and—the latest avenue
of Negro protest—voter-registration and cynicism about
"tokenism" are emotions already at a boiling pitch. The
urban votes defeated the racist
ex-Governor Griffin in the recent Georgia primary—rural
and small-time populations are
still fertile grounds for the
demagoguery of extremist elements. But in rural Alabe.ma
(one of those totally segrated
states), the extremist, by our
standards is normal. Pcae 6

Offer to Meredith
branded as  stunt'
CALGARY (CUP) — The student newspaper at the University of Alberta at Calgary has branded Student Council
president Maurice Yacowar's invitation to James Meredith a
publicity stunt. ~~"—————__«»_«_
May we repeat—
vote, vote,  vote!
Yacowar sent a telegram to
Meredith offering the 29-year-old
Negro travel, tuition and living
expenses if he wished to study
at UAC.
The paper says council should
have offered its "moral support
and leave the issue there."
An editorial concludes: "The
invitation only served to indicate a greater concern for headlines than the struggle of the
Negro student in Mississippi."
In turning down the invitation
Meredith said in a long-distance
telephone interview that there
are more than a million Negroes
in the state of Mississippi who
have fought for the right to a
decent education.
In a second, telegram to Mississippi Gove*p£r Ross Barnett,
Yacowar cha^f^ed the legislative leader lor7;nis "animal prejudices" in tft^peredith issue.

Fraternity led jeers
U of T councillor says
TORONTO (CUP) — A University of Toronto student
councillor has charged that anti-Negro jeers and chants during
a Queen's - Toronto football game were led by members of the
Delta Tau Delta fraternity.

of "Take off, nigger cop."
Various other Toronto students were soon shouting, "Hooray for Ross Barnett," and
"This time we're going to get

denied fraternity members were
involved in the disturbances.
"However," he said, "it is possible that members of Delta Tau

He said, however, that the behaviour of the fraternity mem-
bers at the game would be in.

Since about 1950 doctors
have known that finger-prints

Until now, however, they
could not use this to positively
diagnose  mongolism.
Dr. Miller said the study has
given them a basis for comparison of normal and abnormal
"Through our research we
have established p. norm by
which we can judge the prints,"'
he said.
'In the study 2,000 normal
children from Vancouver schools
were fingerprinted.
Asked whether the fingerprint test would reveal, for example, insanity, Dr. Miller replied: "It would be a little far
cut to diagnose mental disease
with  fingerprints."
Fingerprinting has a history
more than 2,000 years old. The
Chinese used prints then;: for
identification on documents;
But it was not until the 1880's
that they came Into regular use.
At that time they were made
from printer's ink.
Todf.y, prints are taken by
rubbing an oily chemical over
the hand. The hand is then
placed on sensitized paper, and
this reveals all the ridges of

inadequate planning or to bad
management, but to the
.steadily increasing number of
students who. are enrolling at
the university  each year.
•       •       •       ■
Expansion of the university
means expansion of the library,
he said, and the high quality
of a university standard is de-
•-pendent: upon the facilities its
library has. to  offer.
r There are 1,700 seats in the
■library for 14,000 students—
; approximately   one   seat   for
every eight students. The mini-
Imum  number  should  toe  one
seat for  every four  students,
Dr. Ranz said.
There is lack in the number
. . . more facilities
of   copies   of   teaching   books
tions are severe.
A much larger selection of
advanced and little-known
available so lending restric-
books  is  needed  for research
for students in graduate
studies, Dr. Ranz continued.
The selection of books for
the departments of Asian
Studies, Slavonic sudies, zoology, and chemistry is sufficient.
The library as a whole receives its funds from the university while some subject
departments receive funds
through federal grants and
foundations but in order to
maintain a distinctive and excellent standard and in order
to expand with the growing
needs of the university the library must have more funds,
stated Dr. Ranz.
•      •      •
Where will these funds come
A substantial budget has
been presented for 1963-64 in
an attempt to keep up with the
times but it is still inadequate,
said Dr. Ranz.
To improve the existing
conditions, Dr. Ranz hopes to
see 200 more seats put in an
uncompleted well at the rear of
the building and, eventually,
seperate r£ acuity libraries
throughout the campus.
At present, however, no definite plan has been formulated to put this into effect.
Dr. Ranz came to Vancouver
during the summer from the
University of Wyoming in Laramie where he was Director of
Libraries. While there he
designed the university library
to ensure full usage of space
and facilities.

UBC has two-pronged puck attack
Off cuff remark
got Bauer started
on Olympic plan
An off the cuff remark by
UBC hockey coach Father David
Bauer has led to the formation
Of an Olympic hockey club on
At the end of last year's
World Hockey Championships
in Colorado, Father Bauer was
talking over the hockey situation with the coaches of other
He heard the U.S. coaches
discussing in detail their plans
for the 1964 Olympics in
Austria. The Canadian team by
contrast didn't even know how
they were getting home.
Casually, he mentioned that
Canadian colleges if given the
chance could develop Canada's
Olympic team. He argued that
college teams had represented
Canada in international competitions  in  the thirties.
After many discussions with
the Canadian Amateur Hockey
Association and other Canadian
hockey officials, plans were
completed. In late August,
Father Bauer announced that
UBC would sponsor the '64
Canadian Olympic team.
It has long been Father
Bauer's dream to enable Canadian youths to get an education
and still play hockey.
This new plan will enable a
player to extend his education
beyond the high school level
and still represent Canada in
international hockey.
During the '62-'63 season UBC
will have just one team, and it
will play in the Western Canadian Inter-Collegiate Athletic
Association. Next year, thn
team will be divided into two
units, the Thunderbirds and
the Olympic squad.
During the Olmpic year, the
two teams will be kept separate
with different practice hours
and different schedules.
Father Bauer is expecting
an on-campus rink by this time
able to accomodate the two
senior teams plus possibly a
junior team.
"Ice time is a key problem at
present," he explained. "We
have four late hours in Kerrisdale Arena, one of them be
ginning at 11:45 p.m. Saturday
All members of this year's
team are registered students at
the University and are paying
their own way.
"It is hoped that the Olympic
team will also be wholly UBC
students, although, if we find
we are too weak to go to the
championships we will get outside help," says Father Bauer.

T-Birds and Gnup searching
for the Golden Bears touch
UBC Thunderbirds spar
with the University of Alberta
Golden Bears Saturday in Edmonton with first place in the
WCIAA going to the team with
the knockout punch.
Both teams now share first
place in the league with victories over Saskatchewan and
But in those two games, Golden Bears threw their weight
around in running up 106
points as compared to the
Birds 58.
The Birds, however, were
without six first string players
which might account for the
difference in total points.
This weekend, three of the
injured first stringers return
and will undoubtedly beef up
the Birds' scoring punch.
Though the statistics don't
show it, coach Frank Gnup
still has reason to worry about
his defensive. But his worry
for  the  past  two   games  has
... on the move
given the rookie defensive
team inspiration.
The Bears offense averages
195 pounds and contains three
members of last year's all-star
team. In surveying the Bears
line, Gnup concludes that they
are "a bunch of hard-nose kids.
This year's Birds are better
than ever as far as ability
goes," says Gnup in making
a comparison of aggressiveness,
"but they are not a real tough
Moans Gnup, "Gary Smith,
their quarterback, is a fine
passer and pass defence has
been our biggest weakness all
• • •
The cigar-chomping coach also has words of distress about
the Bears' running attack.
"They have two fast halfbacks
who turn the corner well. If
you stop them there they will
hurt you up the middle."
But the crocodile tears let
up when Gnup turns to his
own quarterback, Barry Carkner. Carkner has been moviilg
the club neatly and what's
more important, consistently
in his first two starts.
Both teams will rely heavily on
aerial attacks and this could
be the highest-scoring game of
the season if the passes click.

This year's winnmgest UBC team has
a mystery side.

two league championships, and two other
B.C. tournaments.
The team which is actually four
teams concerns itself with playing cricket.

The little known Varsity cricketeers
in an unprecedented display of power
swept both the top two divisions of the
B.C. Mainland Cricket League as well
as winning the Fyfe Smith and Gardner
Johnson trophies.
"Cricket was the university's most
successful sport this past year," said manager Ralph Phelps Monday, only days
after his team's final game of the season,
The cricket season runs from May
through the summer holidays until
Interest in this game where a "fast
ball" can curve up to two feet in the
air is growing, says Phelps.
Compared to baseball, its modern descendant, cricket offers a fantastic variety
in the battle between bowler and batsmen.
The ball has a broad seam around its
middle and when bounced off the pitch
in front of the batsmen can be made to
do everything but spit at him as is goes
The hot corner in baseball is nothing
compared to the "slips" position only 15
or 20 feet from the batsman.
•       •       •
"You have to be fast," says Phelps.
Two of the four university teams are
made up of grads and faculty members.
The first division "Varsity Occasion-
als" won the Fyfe Smith trophy, while
undergraduate teams won the league trophies and the Gardner Johnson"shieId in
the second division.
The Varsity second division' team captured the Gardner-Johnson prize in a rare
series sweep of six games.
None of the teams has a coach.
"In cricket," says Phelps, "you don't
need the same boost; and it's the captain
who calls the plays during the game."
Many of the cricketeers are West In-
" dians who have played extensively in their
own countries.
•       •       •
But many baseball-bred Canadians are
trying the awkward-looking stances of
"And Canadians," says Phelps, "are
even now among our best players."
A good bowler can pitch a ball at over
90 miles per hour and a batsman can hit
the ball to any point on the compass from
his batting position.
The game has caught on strong in Vancouver because of the mild weather and
the availability of greens.
