 Admin quiet on alleged Nazi
UBC administrators are declining
comment on the Dutch government's accusation that UBC botany
lecturer Jacob Luitjens is a convicted war criminal.
Neither will they discuss Luitjens'
future at UBC.
Administration president Doug
Kenny recently said he will assume
Luitjens is "totally innocent" until
evidence proving otherwise is
found.
Vice-president academic Michael
Shaw said Monday he had no comment.
"I really know nothing whatsoever except what I read in the
newspaper," he said.
The Dutch government claims
Luitjens is a war criminal and tried
and convicted him in absentia in the
Netherlands in 1948. It requested
his extradition from Canada in
1980, which was refused by the
Canadian government.
Canada and the Netherlands have
no extradition treaty for war
criminals. Luitjens could have been
extradited only if the Dutch had
tried him for murder.
Luitjens allegedly joined the
Dutch Nazis during World War II
and killed a German army deserter
and a Dutch resistance member.
Luitjens became a UBC lecturer in
1961.
Botany head Robert Scagel
would only say, "My personal comment is Luitjens is a good teacher, is
cooperative and has a good reputation."
"I think the faculty association
would   be   unwilling   to   make   a
judgement based on newspaper articles," said faculty association
president Jonathan Wisenthal. The
faculty association might form an
opinion if more information about
Luitjens becomes available, he added.
But UBC rabbi Daniel Siegel
disagreed. "The Dutch government
has requested his extradition and
the Canadian government should
respect that," Siegel said Monday.
The government is wrong in
holding up the extradition on a
technicality, he said.
But Siegel said he has no plans to
protest Luitjens' employment at
UBC. "I would be happy to see him
proven innocent."
A former student of Luitjens' at
UBC said: "He's a tremendous
man. He did more to encourage me
in botany than any other
professor."
"That really shocks me," she
said.
Luitjens told the Vancouver Sun
Friday he had killed no one. As for
the accusation, he said, "That was
(made) after the war."
"They can charge you with
anything, particularly when you're
not there."
The Ubyssey phoned Luitjens
Monday, but his son said he was
not speaking to anybody.

Firings 'justified' says Frank
By LISA MORRY
Six students fired by the Alma Mater Society deserved to lose their jobs, former Alma Mater Society president Dave Frank said Monday.
But some of the students fired Feb. 3, denied
Frank's allegations and said the society's actions were
too harsh.
"In my opinion the firings were very justified," said
Frank. "There were a number of reasons for them.
They weren't doing their jobs and it is not fair to our
other student employees, who do a damn good job, to
keep these people on."
A memo from AMS general manager Charles Redden stated several reasons, said Frank. Not all the
reasons apply to all of those fired, Frank added.
The memo alleged:
• some employees operated a complex hockey betting pool which involved thousands of dollars and used
the games room as a drop off point;
• the games room's safe was left open, an action
which earlier resulted in a $900 theft; and
• the coin refund system wasn't followed properly.
Other charges in the memo include loitering around
the pool tables during work, a poor attitude toward
customers, improper cashing-out procedures and
failure to keep the facility clean.
"All the people were warned verbally, repeatedly,"
said Frank.
But Monty Mitchell, one of the seven students fired,
said he was never given a warning.
"I thought I was doing a good job. I was surprised
actually."
Helen Lee and Dale Jackson also say they were
never warned about losing their jobs. "Nobody was
warned," said Lee.
Redden said Feb. 21 the employees fired should not
have gone to The Ubyssey first. They should have
taken their grievances to council, he said. Redden
refused further comment on lawyer's counsel.
In answer to the illegal hockey pool charge, Jackson
confirmed his involvement.
"Sure I'm in on it," Jackson said.
Ralph Johnson, also fired, confirmed the hockey
pools operation but said it shouldn't be grounds for
dismissal.
Lee said she saw the books used for the pool but
didn't know what was happening with them.
Mitchell said the allegation of refund rip-offs
resulted from misuse of the slip system. Johnson said
the staff put money into the machines whenever someone lost a quarter.
"(Games room manager) Alex Sawacki figured one
person ripped off the refunds," said Johnson.
Jackson said they all deny the theft accusation and
are angry about it.
Loan collection turns ugly
Students who cannot make
payments on their student loans
may find themsleves pursued by
private collection agencies, UBC
financial officer Dan Worsely said
Monday.
Students know they must make
arrangements with their banks to
repay federal government-insured
loans, but most do not know when
the federal government assumes the
debt, individual cases are turned
over to collection agencies.
"Between eight and 10 per cent who
file for and receive student aid fail
to pay up when the time comes," he
said.
But Worsely said most students
can not be blamed for failing to
pay.
"The real default rate is only two
or three per cent. The majority of
technical defaulters simply haven't
understood the regulation properly.
"They're not headliners, they
just forget."
Many students, however, have
real problems paying off their
loans, according to Mike McNeil,
Canadian Federation of Students-
Pacific fieldworker.
"Students are Gust) starting to
receive their first letters in the mail
from the government now," he said
Monday.
"The sad thing is that many of
these people aren't on campus. A
lot of the time (the situation involves) graduates who have no type
of organization to back them up,"
he said.
"The only reason I found out
about (the procedures) is that my
roommate got his first letter the
other day," he said. "He's a commerce graduate and he's been looking for work for eight months.
"He wanted to get his M.A. but
until he finds some way to pay off
his current loan, he can't."

Summer cleaning
Don't get sucked in — unless you want to sell vacuum cleaners this
summer.
A poster on campus bulletin boards which boasts summer job earnings between $6,000 and $17,000 promotes door to door sales of
Electrolux household cleaning equipment, but the company name is
not on the poster.
And the poster's claims have sweeping implications.
While some employees earned that kind of money last summer, the
average student got taken to the cleaners. Ron Girard, the contact on
the poster, said the average student earned $1,007.
But rugged individuals can earn up to $3,000 in bonuses which
begin after six sales and before that the earnings are 20 to 30 per cent
of the retail prices. The company provides equipment on consignment for demonstrations.
The poster directs interested students to apply at the campus
Canada Employment Centre but the centre doesn't post the job or
the poster, they only take names.
The Canada Employment Centre said they usually don't deal with
direct sale jobs, but in these economic times they couldn't brush off
the opportunity.
Student behavior to be regulated
Students at Queen's University
can be punished for bad behavior
following acceptance of a special
university senate committee report.
The senate committee on student
relations with the city of Kingston
decided students registering in
September must sign a code of
conduct to stop "any form of
behavior that would tend to bring
the university and its student body
into disrepute."
Students who disobey the code
may be fined up to $1,000, suspended or expelled.
The conduct code is intended to
control student behavior when they
are off the campus.
Arts and science dean Duncan
Sinclair said Queen's wants to en
sure student actions will not harm
the university's reputation.
But the university is not the only
body which has sought to control
students' actions.
Student council at Queen's also
have a code of behavior for
students, but it is being challenged
by law student Ian Donaldson and
Kingston lawyer Terence O'Hara.
They are defending several
students charged by council's
judicial committee for breaking the
code.
Donaldson and O'Hara argue the
AMS has no jurisdiction over
students while they are off campus.
The students pleaded guilty to
charges of public intoxication.
O'Hara also criticized the administration's code, saying universities have no legal power to
regulate themselves. "A university
isn't given a special mandate to protect the public from students. Nor is
it necessary for them to provide
such protection," he said.
Donaldson said the students
should not be subject to punishment by the university because they
have already been convicted in a
provincial court.
The legal test will determine if
Queen's is "a community of interest" or simply a business providing a service, said Sinclair, who
added that Queen's can be self-
regulating and limit student
behavior. Page 2

NO RAD to allow the cruise missile

Robinson said official claims that
the cruise missile is intended for

wrong.
"There are 1,000 targets for the
cruise missile as a second-strike

agreement was for 2,000 missiles."
Cuts force drop-outs
REGINA (CUP) — Most of the
264 Indian students in a special program at the University of Regina
were forced to drop out last month.
They're gone because they ran
out of money when the federal
government cut funding for the
university entrance program at the
end of the first semester. The 264
students in the program were forced
to attend classes after Jan. 6
without money for books, food,
tuition fees or rent.

Robinson criticesed the Canadian
government for increasing the
defense budget to $7.8 billion, while
cutting back assistance to the poor
and elderly.
Montrealers
protest bill
MONTREAL (CUP) — About
1,200 high school, college and
university students took to Montreal's slushy streets Feb. 23 to protest the Quebec government's Bill
111.
The law is designed to end an illegal strike by teachers. It doubles
fines for strikers, unions, and their
executives and threatens mass firings and loss of seniority for
teachers continuing to strike. The
law also suspends the rights
guaranteed under the Quebec and
Canadian human rights charters.
When the law was passed Feb.
17, the teachers were entering the
fourth week of their strike to protest law 105, a recently-decreed contract that slashed salaries, increased
workloads, reduced job security
and denied them the right to strike
until 1985.
Teachers voted Feb. 19 and 20 to
return to work for three weeks and
to initiate negotiations with the
government. If no progress has
been made by March 14, teachers
say they will return to the picket
lines.

Talking 'useless1
By PAT MACLEOD
David Singer doesn't talk about
international peace, poverty or
worldwide spiritual enlightenment.
But during a low-key speech
Saturday night the University of
Michigan political science professor
told a academic crowd arms control
negotiations are useless and a
unilateral renunciation of first
strike weapons is the only way to
avoid nuclear catastrophe.
"Every weapon system has provocative and deterrent
characteristics. We must eliminate
the weapons with high provocative
value and low deterrent value,"
namely the MX, Cruise, Pershing
II, and Trident II.
Since losing his security clearance
12 years ago, Singer has taken on
the role of an educator and his concern we don't know enough about
the dynamics of war during
peacetime led to his pioneering Correlates of War project.
"When someone says America
needs the military capabilities to
deter and to win if deterrence fails,
I would urge you to say 'That is
hokum.' In 1983 the Soviets and
Americans are grieviously overarm-
ed."
"I don't care how repressive the
U.S.S.R. is. That doesn't provide any
moral or pragmatic basis for continuing to deploy weapons that
threaten our survival.
"If someone tells you, 'Mr., if
you knew what I do you wouldn't
support the nuclear freeze,' you
reply, 'Mr. I know what you know
and apparently I know more than
you and that's why I support the
freeze'."
"Name me one major power
in the modern international system
that has a shorter list of agression
than the U.S.S.R."
Singer believes there is still a
chance to "break out" of the
"idiotic notion that those guys
know what they're doing." But the
peace movement must not behave
as it has in the past, he added.
'No First Use' and arms reductions have to take priority over garbage collection during elections, he
said. "We just may get it this
time."

Past to ponder as week Begins
As Israel week begins at UBC, ex-
defence minister Sharon assumes
his new position in the Israeli
government. Prime minister Begin
retains his power. Both continue to
influence the future of the
Lebanese, Palestinian and Israeli
people.
Begin's "aggressive" stance in
Lebanon has cost dearly in lives and
international political viability for
the state of Israel. His settlement
program in the West Bank exacerbates existing bitterness and fear
between the Palestinian and Jewish
inhabitants of the area, further
weakening communication and
pushing the possibility of cooperation towards a reasonable settlement in the Middle East decades
away.
perspectives
With so many Jews and non-Jews
inside and outside Israel speaking
out against the war in Lebanon,
deploring the massacres at Sabra
and Shattila (for which an indepen-
dant group of international lawyers
found the Begin government directly responsible), why is Begin permitted to continue?
Please consider a letter published
in the New York Times in
December, 1948.
"Among the most disturbing
political phenomena of our time is
the emergence in the newly created
state of Israel of the Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political
party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy
and social appeal to the Nazi and
Fascist parties. It was formed out of
the membership and following of
the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist
organization in Palestine.
"The current visit of Menachem
Begin, leader of this party, to the
United States is obviously
calculated to give the impression of
American support for his party in
the coming Israeli elections, and to
cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the
United States. Several Americans of
national repute have lent their
names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose
fascism throughout the world, if
correctly informed as to Mr.
Begin's political record and
perspectives, could add their names
and support to the movement he
represents.
"Before irreparable damage is
done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in
Begin's behalf, and the creation in
Palestine of the impression that a
large segment of America supports
fascist elements in Israel, the
American public must be informed
as to the record and objectives of
Mr. Begin and his movement.
"The public avowals of Begin's
party are no guide whatever to its
actual character. Today they speak
of freedom, democracy and anti-
imperialism, whereas until recently
they openly preached the doctrine
of the fascist state. It is in its actions
that the terrorist party betrays its
real character; from its past actions
we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.
"A shocking example was their
behavior in the Arab village of Deir
Yassin. This village, off the main
roads and surrounded by Jewish
lands, had taken no part in the war,
and had even fought off Arab
bands who wanted to use the village
as their base. On April 9, terrorist
bands attacked this peaceful village,
which was not a military objective
in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants — 240 men, women and
childen — and kept a few of them
alive to parade as captives through
the streets of Jerusalem.
"Most of the Jewish community
was horrified at the deed, and the
Jewish Agency sent a telegram of
apology to King Abdullah of Trans-
Jordan. But the terrorists, far from
being ashamed of their act, were
proud of this massacre, publicised it
widely, and invited all the foreign
correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and
the general havoc at Deir Yassin.
"The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions
of the Freedom Party.
"Within the Jewish community
they have preached a mixture of
ultra-nationalism, religious
mysticism and racial superiority.
Like other fascist parties they have
been used to break strikes, and have
themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their
stead they have proposed corporate
unions on the Italian Fascist model.
"During the last years of
sporadic anti-British violence, the
IZL and Stern groups inaugerated a
reign of terror in the Palestine
Jewish community. Teachers were
beaten up for speaking against
them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By
gangster methods, beatings,
window-smashing, and wide-spread
robberies, the terrorists intimidated
the population and exacted a heavy
tribute.
"The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They
have reclaimed no land, built no
settlements, and only detracted
from the Jewish defense activity.
Their much-publicized immigration
endeavors were minute and devoted
mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots.
"The discrepancies between the
bold claims now being made by
Begin and his party, and their
record of past performance in
Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the
unmistakable stamp of a Fascist
party for whom terrorism (against
Jews, Arabs and British alike), and
misrepresentation are means and a
'Leader State' is the goal.
In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the
truth about Mr. Begin and his
movement be made known in this
country. It is all the more tragic that
the top leadership of American
Zionism has refused to campaign
against Begin's efforts, or even to
expose to its own constituents the
dangers to Israel from support to
Begin.
"The undersigned therefore take
this means of publicly presenting a
few salient facts concerning Begin
and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest
manifestation of fascism.

God also tells us in Leviticus that

from side to side, and you shall not
shave the edge of your beards"
(Leviticus 19:27). This is the word
of the Almighty, seen?

and submit their applications to the Ubyssey office (SUB 241k) by noon,
Monday March 7.
Candidates will be screened intensely (the screenings get mean, so
prepare for the worst) on March 8 or 9.
Voting takes place between the screenings and March 14.
Knowledge of UBC, journalism and handling unruly reporters are
necessary, but not necessarily sufficient for the position.
A year of chipping away at the underpinnings of any and all respectable
social and political institutions is promised for the successful applicants.
It's not all fun, and you won't get paid.
But, hell, you have to die to become immortal, right?
'Amazing replies'
We are amazed at the replies to
our letter, In Tune With God's Intentions (Feb. 15). To our dismay it
have been thoroughly misunderstood, so we would like to clarify a
few things.
Firstly, we are not in favor of
persecuting homosexuals. We firmly believe that everyone in entitled
to freely choose their own lifestyle
— without persecution. Secondly,
the purpose of our letter was to address three sweeping statements
made in Robert Beynon's article,
Church Acceptance Slow As Gays
Find God (Feb. 11).
Namely, "Homosexuality is not a
sin," "The bible does not explicitly
forbid homosexuality," and God
blesses certain people with a
homosexual orientation."
Contrary to these statements, the
bible clearly states just the opposite.
Thirdly, we were intrigued with Bob
Summerbell's letter which stated
that the bible . doesn't mention
homosexuality directly. His letter
then goes on to quote two passages
where   homosexuality   is   directly
Sharp advice
Thank you. As a carver you have
touched my heart. The article entitled, Carver, by Eric Eggertson, was
very enjoyable reading material, in
between two boring lectures.
The Ubyssey might be better read
if more articles like this one overshadowed your clear obsession with
politics, women's problems, and
racism. This attempt to instill B.C.
spirit in the paper will impress out
of province students like myself.
Gerry Davidson
p re-forestry
mentioned  (Romans   1:26-27  and
Levities 18:22).
Anyone reading the passage in
Romans will see that it speaks of the
sinful consequences of a society turning away from God. One of these
consequences involves homosexuality. It seems Bob Summerbell's
view of the Leviticus verse is also in
error. The verse, "You must not lie
with a man as with a woman" is
quite a different matter than the
dietary law.

Amnesty
not enough
Thank you UBC Amnesty International. Your verbal support after
obtaining the American Pictures
presentation was appreciated.
However, it seems active participation is not a function of your
group. If any of your members saw
the presentation, which is doubtful
(it was raining those nights), they
might have better understood the
phrase, "bleeding heart liberals."
As a result of your group's lack
of help in promoting American Pictures, most of UBC never knew it
was coming. Experiencing a show
that has changed the opinions of
millions of Europeans about North
American life, while sitting with less
than 50 others, one begins to realize
how useless all of the sympathetic
verbal yip-yap really is.
Talk and what-I-can-spare
money is cheap. Action is what
changes history.

THE UBYSSEY
March 1, 1983
The Ubyssey is published Tuesday and Friday through
the university year by the Alma Mater Society of the
University of B.C. Editorial opinions are those of the
staff and are not necessarily those of the AMS or the
university administration. Member, Canadian University
Press. The Ubyssey's editorial office is in SUB 241k, with
the advertising office in SUB 266. Editorial department
228-2301; Advertising 228-3977.
"aughhh, there is Brian Jones floating in a swimminii pool," screamed Robby Robertson.
"Don't worry," said Craig Brooks, "he's been like that for 15 years, if fact he is 41 today."
Robert Benyon, Lisa Morry and Sarah Cox did not appear too worried. "He kind of looks nice
with all those lily pads and frogs around him," muttered Shaffin Shariff. Pat McLeod lit the
birthday cake while Paul Weetham put "Gimme Shelter" on the turntable at the request of
George Pedersen. Victor Wong stirred the Goats Head Soup and Stephen Wisenthal complained he had Sticky Fingers. Peter Berlin came to Arnold Hedstrom's Emotional Rescue,
Monte Stewart asked to be Started Up while Alison Hoens photographed the dead body. The
party went all night, with the assembled staff singing Sympathy for the Devil (which was being played backwards) and Midnight Rambler. Emma sat in the corner talking to Angie and
stirring Brown Sugar into her coffee.

Blacks, not whites beaten
Re: your story, A Lot of What I
Sell Is Degrading (Feb. 22).
I said: "Hedgecock is already
drawing a line by not selling child
porn or magazines which show
black people being beaten and
raped by white people."
Because I speak too fast and
unclearly on the phone, it is not
your reporter's fault that she
quoted the exact opposite to what I
said. She is an excellent and diligent
reporter and I'm sorry I didn't do
my bit by speaking clearly.
It is most important to me that a
public correction be made. I have
asked six people if the misquoted
material conveys the impression
that I imagine there is literature
showing whites hurt by blacks
(which does not exist) and hence am
guilty of racist reversals of reality.
They all said it does read offensively, and so I am anxious that this
wrong impression be corrected as
soon as possible.
Jo Evans-

Alien
I would like to object to a racial
slur which was repeated on several
successive days last week in SUB
auditorium (during The Wrath of
Khan). Admiral James T. Kirk,
speaking at the funeral service of
Mr. Spock, declared in a trembling
voice that Spock had been "the
most human person I knew."
The distress of the Vulcans in attendance was evident. This was a
veritable case of adding insult to
fatal injury, since it was Kirk's inexplicably pigheaded defiance of
Starfleet regulations in approaching
a silent ship without protective
forcefields that ultimately led to
Spock's demise.
If even in the twenty-third century a person with the position and
influence of admiral Kirk can be
oblivious to the persisting issue of
discrimination, one is tempted to
despair of life forms altogether and
place one's hopes in a takeover by
computers.

Did You Think
We'd Let You Forget It?
Council members are reminded
to attend an exciting and informative informal meeting to
discuss the Ubyssey's restructuring proposal, which has been
60 years in the making.
The event promises to surpass
the royal wedding, Leonid's
funeral, and Ronnie's daily
schedule in excitement and
tolerance.
Wednesday, March 2,
at 6:30 p.m.
Given    council's   usual   enthusiasm, we're sure everyone
will want to attend.
Did You Think
We'd Leave You Out?
UBC students are cordially invited to a discussion on The
Ubyssey and its restructuring
proposal, and on the student
press on campus.
Drastic measures have affected
The Ubyssey this year — and we
want you to know what can be
done about them.
Friday, March 4, at noon.
We look forward to seeing you.

'Birds maintain record
The Thunderbird rugby team
protected their season-long
unbeaten streak against four rough
assaults during the California
University tour last week.
The 'Birds sternest test was in
Berkeley against the University of
California Golden Bears, who they
eventually beat 29-10. But the score
gives no indication of the ferocious
battle the teams fought.
The Cal' team was stocked with
imposing football players and they
came out hard in the first half with
a strong wind and bright sun at
their backs. On a muddy pitch
which resembled a pig-pen they used every means (some of them illegal) to intimidate the lighter UBC
pack. By half time Cal had run up a
10-4 lead.
But a fiery halftime pep-talk pulled the team round and in the second
half the tired mudcaked 'Birds
came back. The forwards finally
began to introduce a semblance of

Huskies drop UBC
By MONTE STEWART
The 'Bird's basketball team's
season ended abruptly in Saskatoon
on Saturday night. The University
of Saskatchewan Huskies dropped
the 'Birds 72-59. The loss, combined with a 76-72 defeat to the
University of Alberta in Edmonton
Thursday, ended the 'Birds' playoff chances.
Needing at least one win from the
final two games of the regular
season, the 'Birds blew their chance
to make up for their sporadic and
generally disappointing season.
With the win on Saturday, the
Huskies squeaked into the playoffs, although both UBC and
Saskatchewan had identical 3-7
records, the Huskies advance on the
basis of a better record against the
'Birds.
Mark Marter, with 13 points led
the 'Birds against Saskatchewan.
Thursday, the 'Birds should have
ensured themselves a play-off spot.
They were leading by 13 points with
13 minutes remaining in the game,
but the Golden Bears, facing a
possible fourth place finish if they
lost, railed to win.
Mark Marter led the 'Birds with
23 points while Pat West added 20.
What can be expected from the
Thunderbirds next season?
It is still uncertain whether coach
Bob Molinski will return. Molinski
replaced head coach Peter Mullens,
who is currently on one year leave.
Either Molinski or Mullens will
guide the 'Birds next campaign.
"I'll be back here next year, but
it may be as a spectator," said
Molinski.
The highly ranked Thunderbird
men's and women's volleyball
teams travelled to Calgary last
weekend to challenge the defending
Canada West champions, Calgary,
and the rest of the conference teams
in the last of the Canada West tournaments. It was a hard weekend for
the 'Birds as both teams were
narrowly defeated in the championship matches.
The women's team, led by first
team all-star Tara Senft, lost their
match against Calgary on Saturday
night by a score of 3-1.
Coach Sandy Silver said the third
game loss (15-13) was the deciding
game of the season for the team.
She would have liked to have seen
more Thunderbirc! players named
to the all star teams that were announced at the end of the tournament.
In men's competition the Victoria
Vikings took the championship out
of UBC's grasp as they defeated the
'Birds 3-2 after coming from behind
in the third game.
In previous play the Thunderbirds had defeated defending champions Calgary 3-2 with outstanding
performances by Gary Gatzke,
Chris Frehlich and Brad Willock
(who served four aces).
For UBC players were named to
the two all star teams. On the first
team were Brad Willock and Paul

organization into their rucking and
after a while managed to complete a
few tackles.
They began to win good position
and that little was enough. The
UBC backs, who have not been
stopped yet this season, were able to
run in 25 points in the second half
while the Bears were unable to
manage any.
Now the 'Birds are undefeated in
21 games this season. The question
of course is whether they can maintain that run until the end of the
year. It may be that the winning has
instilled so much self-confidence

stop but the pressure will really
mount up when they take on the
tough Vancouver Reps in the
McKechnie cup at the Thunderbird
stadium Wednesday evening.
The UBC team defeated the
University of California at Santa
Barbara 32-0, a Los Angeles Tri-
County All Star team 31-9 and concluded their program with a 38-3
bashing of the Stanford University
Cardinals in Palo Alto on Saturday
afternoon.
