Array The Ubyssey has copped an
unprecedented triple crown in
college newspaper awards.
The paper has won:
The Southam Trophy for
general excellence;
The Bracken Trophy for
editorial  writing;
And the Montreal Star Trophy for news photography.
The awards were made at
the 25th annual Canadian University Press Conference in
Ottawa. Judging was done by
professional newspaper men
across the country.
• •    •
It is the first time a college
newspaper has taken three
Closest to accomplishing the
feat was the University of
Toronto Varsity, which took
the Southam and the Bracken
in 1951.
The Ubyss.ey tied with The
Varsity for the Southam award
last year. It was the first time
The Ubyssey had ever won the
In addition to winning the
. three awards, The Ubyssey
placed third in a features writing competition for the N. A.
M. MacKenzie trophy.
• •    •
The only trophy competition
in which the newspaper did
not place was for editorial cartoons.
The features trophy was
awarded to the University of
Alberta Gauntlet, and the cartoon trophy to the University
of Western Ontario Gazette.
The Ubyssey is produced by
an 11-member editorial board
and a staff of 25 occasional reporters and photographers.
• •    •
Nine members of the board
work part-time with the commercial dailies.
The Ubyssey holds journalism workshops for its staff
and arranges seminars conducted by professional journalists.
The paper last won a major
CUP award in 1957 when it
was given the Bracken trophy
for three editorials written by
Mrs. Pat Marchak, now a freelance writer in Vancouver.
Congratulatory letters have
been received by editor Keith
Bradbury from many interested
parties connected with the University and The Ubyssey.
More articles and pictures
dealing with The Ubyssey can
be found on page five.
"Next year's editor will have
a hard time matching this
year's,' said ex-editor Fred J.
Fletcher. 'He will have to get
all five to make it look good."

Pep pills take toll
of unwary students
Three students this year completely missed their Christmas exams because they took too many pep pills.
They spent examination time
in Wesbrook Hospital.
University doctors say this
happens every year.
Students find time running
out and decide to cram. To
build themselves up they take
"pep pills."
The pills keep the student
awake—but in doing so borrow
from other body resources.
The student can only take so
many of these pills before collapsing.
"A regrettable end to an effort," says Dr. A. M. Johnson,
director of University Health
Most pills contain only caf-
fein—the same stimulant found
in coffee. They can be bought
without prescription in any drug
"But the real pep pills, of
the amphetamine group, may be
obtained only through a doctor's prescription," said Dr.
"We only hand out these pills
in exceptional circumstances.
The main danger in using
them is addiction. They provide
a stimulation and the student,
through habitual use, will come
to depend on them too much.
"They increase wakefulness,
but to do this they borrow from
other bodily resources," he
He said it is doubtful how
much good the pills do. The student who uses them stays awake
longer, but while using the
pills he cannot concentrate as

$5 fee hike
hinted for
aid to SUB
Students may be asked to
increase this term.
A referendum, if held, will
ruary or in March.
The money is needed to help
finance the proposed Student
Union Building.
Student President Doug Stewart said Monday:
" "The matter (of the fee increase) is still in the pre-planning stage. The decision whether
to hold a referendum vote will
be made by students council
and will have to be approved by
the Board of Governors before
being put to students."
Students presently pay $24
for AMS fee. Fourteen dollars
of the fee goes to student activities, $5 to pay for the Winter
Sports Arena now under construction and $5 towards the
cost of the Union building.
The total fee increase will be
put to the Student Union building.
Plans call for a $2.8 million
buliding with the possibility of
expanding it to a $5 million
building in the future.
Site for the building has not
been determined.
Whether the referendum is
presented depends partially on
the results of a meeting to be
held Wednesday by an Alumni
Association committee which
will attempt to determine means
of financing the Student Union
However, sole present source
of funds appears to be student
fees, SUB planning officials
One other source of funds will
be Alumni Association members
who will be asked during the annual giving campaign to donate
to the Student Union Building.
Stewart said he believes the
largest fee increase students
will be asked to approve would
be a $5 one.
But other student officials
have talked of a $10 increase.
SUB design is to follow' the
student preferences expressed
in a questionnaire circulated
last year.

They're stencilled. Squat,

give me subtle, chilling messages.
- Like: "If you light a weed, a

nice man,
report says
Yes, Reginald, Premier Bennett is a nice man.
And UBC really does get a
good deal from the p-ovincial
government, according to a statement released by the Point Grey
Social Credit Association.
With only 8.9 per cent of the
Canadian population, B.C.
spends 10.3 per cent of all expenditures on education, the report   states.
Not only does provincial support of UBC compare favorably
with grants by other provinces,
out also the Socred government's per capita grant to UBC
is increasing at a faster rate than
jther provinces.
Between fiscal years 1959-60
and 1961-62, per capita support
by B.C. increased 75 per cent,
while Alberta's support decreased 15 per cent, the statement say's.
By 1967, the report says, the
province will have paid $22.5
million out of $32.5 million to
be spent on increases in the
university plan.
Government grants for the
year ending March 1, 1963 are
$11,600,000, of which $7,575,000
is for operating costs, $3,650,000
for capital grants and $375,000
for student aid and scholarships.

OTTAWA (CUP) — The National Federation of Canadian
University Students has called
on the All-China student federation to exert pressure on t h e
Chinese government to pull its
troops back to their initial frontiers.
The NFCUS statement said, in
part: "We believe that all avenues must be explored to establish an immediate ceasefire and
to begin peaceful negotiation of
the disputed frontier."
The statement on the current
border war between India and
China said that although NFCUS realized the All-China federation may have "an idealogic-
al predisposition to support incursions into areas controlled by
the government of Prime Minister Nehru ... if we are to
avoid thermonuclear catastrophe, we must not predispose
ourselves to peace between
some countries and not others."
In the same statement, NFCUS
extended to the officers of the
All-China federation an invitation to visit Canada during the
summer of 1963 as the first part
of an exchange of student delegations.

Science III
Methinks there is a conspiracy afoot against the individual
and I don't think that either
capitalism or communism are
doing anything to help his
cause. Both are big, big business and big government, and
being big they squash people.
Take for example the Cuban
• . • •
People. I think, are mistaken
if they think that only Khrushchev is playing chess; "Kennedy^
is also. What was said at the
.last Vienna summit conference? We dbntTknowr buf Mr.
K. did teliTKennedy that if he
followed history he would be
the greatest American president. So Mr. K. did make Kennedy the great man in America
by placing, then withdrawing,
the missiles in Cuba. The missiles were not placed in Cuba
for aggression in North America. They were placed there precisely at the time when they
would serve the greatest political advantage for Kennedy.
- He could demand jihein withdrawn and be a hero. And Mr.
K. was ti-ere and. kicked across.
Why, you may ask, dM Mr. K.
do Kennedy a favor? He didn't
really; Mr. K. won prestige
among the neutral nations and
Kennedy got his support from
the American people. ; (Come
BerKn,, Kennedy, will likewise
do Mr. K. a favor.)
•    •    •
Still you may ask, why Kennedy?—because in this game of
international chess you want
an opponent Tyou can more or
less trust to obey the rules. Mr.
K. didn't like Nixon because he
influenced Ike, and Ike didn't
apologize for the U-2 incident
(he was supposed to, according
to the rules). But Kennedy can
. be trusted. Think now, while
Kennedy was blockading Cuba
and threatening to sink Soviet
ships what was Khruschev doing?—attending a social function and praising some American performer, which indicates
that it was all planned ahead of
tme. If the whole Cuban incident wasn't so obvious, it could
be believable, but Kennedy, being new at the game and a bit
clumsy with his moves, took
a while to figure them out.
What was in the private note
exchanged between Kennedy
and Khrushchev after the tense
moments of the Cuban crisis?
It was either a congratulatory
note on being able to play
chess, or some further move.
We were told some globbly-
gook about it being made top-
secret because it echoed with
the shaking of Soviet knees —
When will we see that their
prime concern, Kennedy, Khrushchev and leaders generally,
is the subjugation of their respective, masses- They do this
by precipitating crisises when
ttungs get tough. (Things are
lax in France—look at De
Gaulle; things are tough in India, look at Nehru.> History
will show that we are being
duped, we are being robbed and
• .*.,•,,
We, as individuals, must be
on constant vigilance and examine carefully national and
international events . . . for
soon the questions themselves
will, disappear. Soon we will be
so completely brainwashed by
advertising, mass media and
political commentators that at
home we will become an appendage of the T.V. set, buying
and eating its products, and at
work we will become an appendage to a machine making
money for someone else; Then
the voices, the small voices inside us that call for all that is
noble m man will be silenced.

Letters to the editor
Sink Hie SUB
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In the past, The Ubyssey
has printed a good deal of
material on the proposed Student Union Building; costs,
features and functions, especially as analyzed by Mt. Porter
Butts, have all been put forth
in some detail.
With all due respect (in
fact, as shall be seen, a rather
miniscule quantity) for the
opinions of those who advocate
the creation of such a social-
activity centre on . campus, I
should like to make a counterproposal.
In doing so, I wish first to
ask whether many students
have considered the nature of
the SUB as presently conceived. The accounts of its designers and supporters leave no
doubt that it will be solidly
mired in the synthetic tradition currently the rage on the
best wealthy-mediocre U.S.
campi; an amalgamation of revitalized 1930's, Rah-Rah-ism
and post-war affluence. (If any
readers wish to verify this,
they may. consult a recent complacent article in Time (Nov.
2, 1962) on the burgepningrQf
these pan-everything amusement palaces.)
Do we wish to be sucked
into this ooze of diversion and
mass titillation while even
now it is becoming impossible
to secure a study place in any
of the limited areas on campus
set aside for the "activity"?
Do we want bowling alleys,
dance halls and restaurants in
order to enhance university
life or to smother completely
the little remaining concern
with what it is, what must be
the only true purpose of our
being -here — study„; research,
the broadening and developing of intellect?
In.place of a SUB, I propose
the erection of a HIVE; no abbreviation-but. a description of
its purpose and structure,
i There would be no wide
open, spaces in the HIVE, just
row upon row of coiapaot,
well-lit, sound-proof study
cells, connected by narrow
one-way aisles. Inside, each
would feature a simple metal
desk, comfortable chair, waste-
chute, book-shelf, and perhaps
a sink or fountain — nothing
Imagine 500 or 1,000 or
more such units together in
one multi-storey building or in
several identical blocks about
The idea, as a means of alleviating this campus' growth
problem, is, I believe, worthy
of serious study.
Yours truly,-.     '
Arts 4.
What is happiness?
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It is with great alarm that
I read "The Jury was Right"
by Peter Penz. With seemingly
logical reasoning, he condones
the slaughter of innocent children.
His basic premise is that to
allow a deformed child to live
is to subject it to a "life of
loneliness and misery." In the
first place,, I wonder, how
many physically normal peo*
pie are truly happy. In the
second place, I wonder how
true his premise is.
Happiness is not due to physical well-being; while to a certain extent they complement
one another, happiness is a
state of mind and may be independent of the body. Some of
the greatest geniuses were deformed: Napoleon was hunchbacked; Milton was blind.
Many of our war veterans were
brutally mangled in battle;
yet they live on, many very
successfully and productively.
The mother, Mrs. Vandeput,
was not "courageous and un-
possessive"; she was defiant of
the God who committed this

HIDING HIS BULL WHiP behind the Southam Trophy is Ubyssey editor-in-chief Keith Bradbury, who likes to let people

The paper itself has changed.
The first issue of The Ubyssey on Oct. 17, 1918 was a
quiet, deferential tabloid,

Today's paper is not necessarily polite to anyone — unless they happen to deserve it.
And like its attitude, The

The first Ubyssey was a, tabloid — its layout similar to the
New York Times — colorless
and, on the whole, dull to read.
By the forties, The Ubyssey
was printing on a full-size
page and its appearance was
less stodgy.
Today, The Ubyssey is back
to tabloid format, but its layout is hardly that of the New

U. students
OTTAWA (CUP) — Charges
of police brutality have been
flying since a wild two-hour
demonstration by 300 University
of Ottawa students at Ottawa's
National War  Memorial.
The students were demonstrating against a reported statement by CNR president Donald
Gordon that there were no top
French Canadian executives in
the government owned railway
because it was difficult to find
qualified men.
Police hauled three students
to jail. One witness said one
of the students taken into custody was bleeding in the face.
Another reportedly needed medical aid.
NNCC takes
some measure
The National Non-Conforming
Calathumpiums released its
annual statement today concerning the New Year and its
alleged happiness.
'Sensing the profound ratiocination which" usually occurs at this time of year, and
the ambivalent feelings associated with the commencement of
the New Year, we feel that the
population, at least in some
measure, should be enlightened
about this annual occurrence,
i.e. the New Year," the report
The Non-Conforming Calathumpiums is a fast-growing religious, or not, association,
which is presently sweeping the
country. A new chapter was
recently established at Queen's
University, the Ubyssey has
learned, in the person of Robert
Crown, editor of The Journal.
The NNCC said in the state
ment that the body hoped to
move ahead in some measure
in the New Year, which, of
course, may not be new at all.
Happiness, they feel, is a personal matter which has possibly some objective manifestations. The Calathumpiums feel
sure enough about the New Year
to take the hesitantly positive
step of wishing everybody, including Dr. Peter Remnant and
the Pope, a Happy New Year, at
least  in some measure.
The students paraded from the
University along Ottawa's main
downtown streets, cheering
wildly, singing French Canadian
songs and snarling the heavy
noon-hour traffic.

were seated  inside.

the matter would be discussed
by the Legion's executive in
Ottawa this weekend. He said
it would be up to the courts to
decide if the burning was a desecration of the Memorial.
The demonstrators, many of
them girls, carried signs reading
'Gordon, switch tracks, your
days are numbered," French
Canadian Si, Gordon Non," and.
"Freedom and Emancipation."
Another sign, referring to

much."  ,
Following the scene at the
Memorial, some of the students
marched on Parliament Hill, a
block from the Memorial, to present a brief to Prime Minister
The brief suggested Mr. Gordon withdraw what the students
considered to be offensive statements about French-speaking
Canadians and that Diexenbaker

French-speaking Canadians to
the CNR's administrative board.
During the police court hearing a group of 50 students mined

also took the CBC to task for
the use off the word "mob" in its
reports of J-.e incident.
The student organizers of the
demonstration have called on
Ottawa Mayor, Charlotte Whit-
ton to launch an investigation
into the 'methods used by police
to  handle the  demonstration.
The student federation at
Ottawa University has issued
a statement stating the demonstration was not an official act
of the federation. The statement
also said the use of the pavement in front of the War Memorial was not meant as any sign
of disrespect.
The federation executive said
it "deeply regrets the unusual
and offensive manner in which
it (the demonstration) was handled by the Ottawa Police Department."
The statement says the executive will officially ask the mayor
to investigate activities of the
police department in this matter.
The demonstration received
the full support of Ottawa U's
French-language student paper,

the paper rallied students to the
march. It showed a picture of
the CNR president with his head
in a noose. The caption, in red

Ole  Miss  editor
"too moderate"
The Student Activities Committee at the University of
Mississippi has reprimanded
the editor of the campus paper
for her "moderate stand"
during the school's racial
strife last fall.
Miss Sidna Grower, 21-
year-old journalism major
from Memphis, was accused of
failing to "'counter the distortion by the national press of
the image" of the Ole Miss
student body and government.
The resolution she said "has
failed in time of grave crisis
to represent and uphold the
rights of her fellow students."
For example they cited failure to protest the firing of
tear gas by federal marshalls.

TORONTO (CUP)—Three Ryerson seniors and one U of T
student have taken to the Toronto subway "to cheer up the
masses" with their folk songs.
"The Undergound Four" was
formed two months ago. It contains a banjo, two guitars and
a bass.
"We felt that people needed
cheering up," one of the Four
said. "Since we came together
we've built up quite a following
among subway patrons."
The group plays at one of the
subway stations, and if asked to
"move along," members merely
jump on the trains and travel
to the next station.
While Toronto Transit Commission officials aren't too keen
on the idea of the group holding concerts in the stations, they
have not yet thrown them out.
"I suppose if the inspectors
become too tirea of us we'd-have
to learn some jail songs," one
of the group says.

Students question
value of NFCUS
Ubyssey Feature Writer
"What the hell Is NFCUS?"
This is the query that glares
at the person entering the office of the local committee of
the National Federation of Canadian University Students
from a poster on the wall. It
also portrays the general bewilderment about NFCUS on
this campus.
Many informed students, on
the other hand, have asked the
question, "What the hell is
NFCUS for?"
• *    •
NFCUS is an association of
nearly all student councils of
the universities and colleges
across Canada. Its objectives
are "promoting in every way
possible a better understanding
among Canadian students, instituting a greater degree of cooperation among Canadian student organizations, advancing
legitimate student interests, and
developing relationships with
other national and international
student groups."
Every AMS member pays 40
cents for their implementation.
.•    •    •
It is generally not the objectives that are questioned, but
the organization's effectiveness
in pursuing them.
The widely acknowledged
objections were against the mis-
directed emphasis that NFCUS
has put on frills while neglecting its fundamenta tasks
"These frills," according to
Mary-Lee Magee, local chairman and president of the Western Region of the organization,
"are merely to justify NFCUS
to Joe College who requires a
financial pragmatic approach."
However, even Joe College
does not seem to be impressed.
Such affairs as conferences, exchange scholarships, debating
and literary contests touch only
the fringe of the' campus. Even
such major achievements as the
exemption of university fees
from the income tax has been

Lloyd Martin, president of
UBC's Commerce Undergraduate Society, is of the opinion
that most of the credit has to
be given to the Canadian Association of Medical Students and
the    Engineering    Institute   of
AMS President Doug Stewart's remedy for the pettiness or*
NFCUS is to "make the other
student councils think bigger
and act bigger." NFCUS has to
concentrate on a few vital ac~
tivities to be effective. This is
the policy that UBC's representatives have embarked upon.
• •    •
One a the great, but mostly "
unused potentials of NFCUS is
the  formation  of  an  effective
student lobby power in Ottawa.
Current objectives could be.,
the exemption of textbooks
from income taxation and the
inclusion of student buildings
under the Canadian Housing
and Mortgage Act. In the long
run, NFCUS should strive to. *
ward the elimination of economic barriers to higher educa.
Martin, however, finds a na-"-
tional organization for this pur.
pose out of place, since education fals under provincial jurisdiction.
• •    *
Sam Merrifield, president of.
the Law Undergraduate Society, finds the present set-up
of NFCUS inefficient and inappropriate. He consequently
advocates the dissolution of
NFCUS and the establishment
of a new organization which
would be shaped to perform the
vital tasks of a national student
organization and which would
not be burdened with the ves-'
tiges of previous inefficiency.
•    •    *
Martin is quite bitter about.
the manner in which the AMS
executive proceeded to prop up
the ailing NFCUS. without
first having tested student
In fact, he says: "Doug Stew-*
art told me that if the NFCUS
question were to come up at
the Genera] Meeting the support to  NFCUS would fail.    ^
"He felt that the question
should not be brought up, because people at the General
Meeting did not act responsibly."
Martin feels that the only
way UBC's support for NFCUS
could be justified is by a student referendum. »

Doukhobors are primarily a sectarian community, claiming to
be a sovereign, sacred state.
The have pictured their relation to Rational governments
ss one of mutual recognition,
Dr. Frantz said.
Problems arise when a government, such as Canada's looks
on them not as a sovereign state,
but as a group within society
with some autonomy.
The Doukhobors originated
:n 17th Century Russia as one
of the many protest movements
"ifhin the Orthodox Church.
Their culture incorporated in its
beliefs two opposing principles:
equslitarianism and authoritarianism.
On the local level control had
equalitarian norms. All members
were part of a brotherhood.
Authority was shared -and the
individual was submerged in the
National rule was en authoritarian regime of hierarchies in
government and state. Thi?
created the conflict of attempt
tag brotherhood and universal
equality within a state that was
actually stratified, he said.
In Canada, problems of con
flict with the church have been
removed, but the traditional an
tagonisms with government remains.
.Fires, nudity, threats of immigration and other protest demands have long been used as
weapons against the government.
Isolation is necessary for the
group to function ideally, Dr.
Frantz said. "Civilization, however, keeps catching up on
them." They have kept moving
on, but now time has caught up
with them.
"On purely biological grounds
this need not surprise us because
one of the consequences of improved health and nutrition has
been a steady lowering of the
age of puberty."
The average marriage age has
gone down, the professor said,
but there still is a gap of several
years between the time young
people are physically ready for
sexual experience and their becoming emotionally mature or
economically independent.
Prof. Carstrirs questioned the
belief that today's teenagers are
sexually precocious.
Biologically and emotionally,
children are capable of enioyine
sex from the age of ouberty, he
-aid "In many societies thev are
positively encouraged to do so.
And the interesting thing is that
this premarital licence has been
found compatible with stable
married life."
A new -concept is emerging
said Prof. Carstairs: "A concept
of sexual relationships as a
source of pleasure, but also as a
mutual encountering of personalities in which each explores
the other and at the time discovers new depths in himself or
But, he added, the full realisation of this new concept of sex
could be possible only in a soc-
ety where women enjoyed social and economic equality with

in Trail game
UBC hockey coach Father David Bauer has experienced
many hockey thrills during ihis career but to him the greatest
came last Thursday night in Trail.
It was there his Thunderbirds
scored a 1-1 tie with the Trail
Smoke Eaters, Canada's repre
sentative in this year's World
Ohe.rrJp ionshirs.
"To me it was a bigger thrill
than winning the Memorial Cup
with St. Michael's to see those
boys play Trail," said Father
Bauer on his  return.
"I have never seen sueh
hockey   courage  displayed."
In Trail the Birds tied the
Smoke Eaters 1-1 and then lost
7-2 to the Junior Smoke Eaters
the next night. In Nelson Saturday night Birds tied .4-4 with
Nelson Maple Leafs.
It was the brilliant goaltend-
ing of Ken Broderick and the
spirit of the forward lines that
kept   the   Birds  rolling.
Broderick pulled off an amazing 42 saves in the Smoke Eaters
game while the Trail goalie
handled 21.
Ken Reynolds scored the
Birds' goal early in the game,
while it was late in the game
and only after a long sustained
attack that the Smokies were
able to  tie  it up.
The following evening in the
7-2 loss against the Juniors,
Birds were without the help of
Broderick, Terry O'Malley, Dave
Chambers and Barrie MacKenzie.
Saturday night in Nelson,
Birds were led by goals by Mike
LONE TRAIL GOAL was scored on this play by Smokies' Howie Hornby (white jersey) as
Birds' John MacLeod attempts to poke the puck away to protect goalie Ken Broderick. The
Smokies will represent Canada in this year's world championships, while UBC are Canada's representatives next year. Broderick put on a brilliant display for the 1,600 fans, stopping 42 shots during the game.

the freestyle relay.
The only individual Bird win
came in the 200 meters breast-
stroke when Brian Griffiths
swam his fastest time ever in the
Dave Smith came a close second in the 200 meter butterfly
and Bill Crmpbell lost the 200
meter backstroke to George
Sickel, a. top swimmer for UPS.
John Jewel of UPS broke the
pool record in the 500 metre freestyle. His time was 6:19.1.
Two of the Birds top swimmers will compete in the Pan-

spirited Birds with two goals.
John Harr and Al Johnson completed the scoring. The defeat
was only the second for Lees
in  two  seasons.
Cross, Ed Wasylik, Noel Cummings, and Keith Watson were
standouts in the hard-fought contest.
Deciding game in the Imperial

only one loss. Birds play West
V&n Barbarians this weekend
and play Kats next weekend to
round out the Cup schedule.
Kats are trying to claim the
Cup on the basis that the Birds-
Braves game at the beginning of
the year was not a league game.
Coach Albert Le.ithwaite says
"We'll give them the trophy if
it means that much to them. I
care about the boys playing good
ball  or   not."
Birds then play in the McKechnie Cup series and games

It looks like Canada's universities may get the chance to find

Canada's   Sports   Advisory
Council over the Christmas holidays made a grant of $10,000 to
"" the     Canadian     Intercollegiate

The CIAU wants to use the
money to sponsor national championships in basketball and
hotkey. If the Sports Advisory
Council grants permission for
part of the money to be used in
this manner, then the championships will be on.
Although    confirmation    will
not   be   maple   until   later   this
month,  it is  expected  that  the
^Cquncil will grant permission.
The championships will probably take the form of a two-day
tournament, with one team from

Birds and

The   annual   basketball   battle of the birds   last weekend
turned out to be pretty much of an even match.
The UBC Thunderbirds and
the Seattle Pacific Falcons split
their two weekend games; the
Thunderbirds taking the first, 73
lo 72, in overtime, and the Falcons winning the second 70-67.
It was good basketball—fast
and exciting — and the two
largest night crowds of the season were on hand to watch the
Friday night, with two
seconds left in the game, and
UBC trailing 66-64, the Birds
had the ball out of bounds.
Coach Peter Mullins called a
time out to set up an out of
bounds play. It was a quick pass,
to Mike Potkonjak, cutting
across the top of the key. And
Potkonjak didn't miss. The score
was  66-66.
In the five minutes overtime
period, UBC scored seven points
to the Falcons six, and won the
game 73-72.
On Saturday, with 31 seconds
left in the game, and the score
68-67 for the Falcons, a technical foul was called on the SPC

Basketball Birds
play Santa Claus
Christmas is a time for giving.
And the UBC Thunderbirds basketball team  caught up
in the spirit of things, gave away a few basketball games over
the holiday to teams that did not deserve them.
The   first   —   and   probably
worst — giveaway was in the
first game of the Totem Tournament in December.
Leading by a few points at
half-time, the Birds looked like
sure winners over the shorter
Western Washington Vikings.
But ijn the second half the Birds
fell apart.
They found more ways to
throw the ball away in the second half than most teams can
find in a whole season. They
couldn't hit the basket, and they
couldn't even rebound. They
lost, 56 to 45.
The next night, however, the
Birds were hot. They romped
over the Ne# Westminster Bakers 80 to 57, and coach Peter
Mullins was able to give h i s
starting five most of the evening off.
Central Wishington easily defeated Western Washington to
take the Totem Crown.
UBC's next two games were
against the University of Puget
Sound, on December 28 and 29.
In the first game, the Birds were
sloppy; once again they seemed
unable to do anything right.
They lost, 78 to 57.
Saturday evening, UBC's play
picked up somewhat, but they
were still unable to match the
sharp American team. Led by
a bespectacled guard, the Loggers bounced UBC <66 to 60.
Wednesday, January second,
the Birds rnoved over to New
Westminster to .edge the Bakers 52-49.
