Everybody brings his problems to The Ubyssey.
A phone call to the editorial
office Thursday brought a request to publish a Canadian
handbook of physical constants.
Douglas Pridmore, a roofer
who is studying thermodynamics, said there is no handbook
published in Canada which
. would tell him the gravitational constant for the city of Vancouver.
He said that such handbooks
are published in the United
States on the subject.
He said he could get more
information about Canada from
American handbooks, but he
couldn't find out the gravitational constant of Vancouver.
He called city hall with no

of Vancouver doesn't even

on a plaque in the basement.

Asian students
hit the hardest
Canadian  employers  are   discriminating   against  non-
white Canadian engineering students.
A report compiled by the Engineering undergraduate society in 1962, and kept secret
until now, shows that discrimination is most p.ronounced toward students of Asian origin.
It also indicates that if a
white Canadian and a Canadian
of Asian origin had similar
averages, the white Canadian
would be offered the job.
No discrimination exists for
students of European origin,
though some had language difficulties.
Of 243 job offers made to
graduates only four were made
to the 17 students of Asian origin in Engineering.
The remaining 239 offers
were made to the 85 white
'Only one job offer'
. . no publicity
The four students who did
receive job offers were all East
Indian. Three of them were
born in India, one in Canada.
The ratio of job offers to
interviews in 1962 was: European Caucasians, 40.8 per cent;
Canadian Caucasians, 44.3 per
cent; and Asian students of all
nationalities, including Canadian, 2.4 per cent.
"Only one Canadian citizen
of Asiatic origin was offered a
permanent job, whereas the
average graduating engineer
has one or more job offers,"
the report states.
Nobody wants them, anyway
Barber just not stocking beatles
Ubyssey City Editor
Beatle haircuts are out at
Campus barber Peter Van
Dyke said as of Thursday no
UBC students had tried to get
a beatle at his barber shop.
•    •    *
Van Dyke, campus barber
for 18 years, said he didn't
think there'd be any rush to
get them either.
"I think wives and sweethearts would be disgusted
with the amount of goop
necessary to keep the things
in place.
"On the other hand, I don't
condemn   people   who   wear

them," he said. "Young people
should be excused if they
want to try something different.
"I was young once myself,"
said Van Dyke, who claims to
be 39, but admits he could be
"considerably" older.
Van Dyke said he thought
the beatle haircut would go
the way of the Davey Crockett
•    •    •  .
But he hasn't just been
looking at heads of hair in his
barbering career.
"I think girls' legs have improved," he said. "Girls are
generally looking after them
selves better today than they
used to.
"As hem lines go up the
girls have to keep themselves
neater. If they wore ankle-
length skirts it wouldn't matter so much."
And Van Dyke thinks
young people are basically
honest today.
•    •    •
"I   have   an   honor-box   on
top of my coke machine and
pretty well everyone puts his
money into it," he said.
And, added Van Dyke, the
rumored price-rise of haircuts
in Vancouver probably won't
take place this year.
One Chinese Canadian had a
total of nine interviews and no
A Caucasian with the same
average had five offers from 10
Figures for 1963 graduates,
compiled by Professor W. M.
Armstrong of the department of
metallurgy, show that about
135 job interviews with metallurgy students of Asian origin
resulted in only 12 job offers.
And eight of these were to
one particular graduate. Further figures comparing this
ratio with' that of Caucasian
graduates were not available.
Professor Armstrong said
that in co-operation with the
EUS he was keeping a check
on the 1964 employment interviews.
He said: "There is no question that there is racial discrimination against Asian students
by employers. These are Canadian-born students who have
had all their education in
It is not a language problem,
he said. Figures in the 1962
report show that offers made to
European students were approximately the same as those
made to Canadian Caucasian

planners hope to cash in on a
bonanza of pre-paid rent.
Dean Feltham, SUB committee chairman, said plans were
being worked out to allow the
AMS to collect large amounts
of pre-paid rent.
He said it was a similar
plan to one at Vic College,
which collected $320,000 in advance rent from the Bank of
Montreal on a building which
hasn't even been designed yet.
Feltham said he had talked
to various banks and trust
companies, and all had expressed interest in a similar
He said rental charges in the
SUB would be about $5 per
square foot per year, which,
in the case of the bank, would
amount to  $10,000 per year.
Feltham said it would be a
great breakthrough for financing of the building.
"This will mean we'll be
able to use the money in immediate development plans. It
will be just what is needed to
move SUB.
"The banks we talked to
have expressed a real willingness to consider such a plan,"
Feltham said. "In financial
terms this means a great deal.
"Bankers seldom commit
themselves at all," he said.
"This is tantamount to actual agreement with our plan."
He said there could be other
prepaid rental areas in the
building as well as the bank.
"This will be a highly competitive concession," Feltham
said. "We'll let the space to
the organization which offers
the highest rent."
It is an excellent site, and
we'll have no trouble renting
He said other campuses in
Canada used the same plan to
rent SUB space.
"With all the interest
charges, and the difficulty in
financing the thing, we'll have
to take advantage of every bit
of help," he said.

. . . whisked away
The soapbox bubblings of
AMS vice-president Jim Ward
were called to account Thursday by 300 engineers.
A general meeting of shouting, lunch-throwing engineers
met him on their own ground
in the engineering building
He was abducted from a
noon-hour meeting.
"I really don't know what
I'm doing here," said the unruffled Englishman Ward.
Earlier Ward had said from
his soapbox that Essondale is
too small to take all the engineers who should be put there.
The engineers charged the
AMS is just a massive bureaucracy.
Ward replied, "The Shepard
leading these flocks is obviously stuck in the mire, then."
He denounced the chemical
engineering students for a
poor display at a recent engineering projects exhibition.
Ward escaped unharmed
from the meeting.

Two first year education students Ernie Beat and George
Hollo said Thursday they are
organizing anti-SUB forces to
defeat the proposed fee increase.
"We're against the $5 fee
increase," said Beat, "and we
are even more against the
methods the AMS administration is using to promote it."
Beat said there has been no
chance for a fair hearing of
students ofpposed to the increase.
"The AMS has lots of money
available to promote their
ideas with fancy displays. We
are going to go to the AMS
finance committee and ask
them to' give us funds to present an opposing point of
Hollo, who spoke from a
soapbox in front of the library
Wednesday, said he plans to
get up on the soapbox every
noon until the issue comes to
a vote.
The referendum on whether
AMS fees should be raised
from $24 to $29 will be held
Feb. 28 and March 2.
Hollo said some students in
the group were opposed to the
SUB concept completely but
that since students had voted
in favor of the plan they would
concentrate only on the $5 fee
increase issue.
"It's not the building we
really object to," said Beat.
"It's just that we feel the AMS
is shoving this thing down the
throats of students.
"And opposition won't hurt
anyone, it will probably get
more people interested, more
people out to the polls and
therefore a larger section of
the   campus   feeling."

On Campus Canada
AMS hit with
$2,200 deficit
The AMS stands to lose at least $2,200 on the first two
issues of Campus Canada.
And student council will not
spend any more money on the
magazine unless some firm
financial commitments are
made by other universities.
Mike Hunter, editor of the
second edition of the magazine, said the AMS took the
loss because they were acting
as publisher's agents for the
Canadian Union of Students.
"We agreed to absorb any
profit or loss which might occur,"  he said.
Roger McAfee, present editor of the magazine explained
to council Monday the reason
the loss was incurred was
other universities were not trying to sell it.
"We sent the second edition out in November, but some
universities have not even begun to sell it," he said.
''Some still owe us money
from the first edition.
"Delegates to the CUS national congress this year said
that a national student magazine was the second most important item on their agenda,
but few are doing anything
about it.
"The opinion of our advisory
committee is not to spend any
more money until we get firm
financial commitments from
other universities."
McAfee explained the universities would be asked to
guarantee sales of 10 per cent
of their population, the money
to be paid in advance.
"The next edition, scheduled
for the fall of 1964, will not
be started until these commitments are made."

Grid graft
We are afraid we are unable to refrain from entering the current squabble over athletic scholarships,
which has been raging on the pages of the campus n'sp'r
of late.
We do so with considerable caution, and an anecdote
about some eggheads at the University df Chicago, a bastion of intellectualism where athletics has a bad name,
much as Mr. Bennett has here.
Football was banned by the chancellor in 1939 because he thou#it students should concentrate on studies.
Last fall, however, a group of reactionaries attempted to
re-establish the football team by scheduling a match with
an obscure local squad.
Just before the opening kick-off, a group of egghead
demonstrators, displaying such anti-football slogans as
"Ban the ball" (in Greek letters), ran on to the field and
sat down, right across the 50-yard line.
Despite pleas from the athletic director and the
dean of students ("Why don't you fundamentalist dogmatists let some other people have their fun?"), the eggheads would not be moved and police had to be called to
clear the field.
We don't suggest that football, or athletic scholarships, would ever receive such formidable opposition
here as did the Chicago gridders.
But we do think athletic scholarships run against
the grain of all UBC tradition that ever existed, and that
therefore (1) we will never get them and (2) even if we
did, we still wouldn't have a football team that would,
beat Washington.
We would suggest any money we can get would
be far better spent luring top coaches, and polishing up
our present undernourished organizational setup. We
think there are lots of B.C. football players who would
come here if our reputation were good enough, scholarships or not.
In the meantime, if you chaps are worried about
getting one-upped by hometown boys playing for piddling
U.S. schools, there's an easy way to boost our prestige.
Just schedule the University of Chicago. We could
surely beat them.
Brains on high
We urge a round of applause for Dr. Gordon Shrum,
the flamboyant chancellor of UBC's mountain-top rival,
Simon Fraser Academy.
Dr. Shrum's ideas concerning his new college, and
about universities in general, are refreshing, to say the
least. They reek of common sense and practicality,
qualities all too rarely found amid the ivy-dhoked tradition of established institutions.
Simon Fraser won't be bound by tradition in its
architecture, its teaching methods, course content, or its
financing, Dr. Shrum says.
B.C. is presently experiencing an unprecedented
squeeze on university facilities—so what does Dr. Shrum
do? He sets up SFA on a trimester system, so that the
facilities can be used 12 months of the year.
He's going to make SFA different—with TV teaching
and entrance requirements that allow people with grade
10 to get in if they're up to it.
But more sensible yet is Dr. Shrum's admission that
SFA is an undergraduate school, and, therefore, should
be geared that way. Shrum is thus going to put extra
emphasis on teaching.
Shrum, therefore, will have top professors—"in the
tradition of popular UBC professors who used to draw
students who weren't even taking their courses because
their lectures were so good"—presiding in the classrooms.
While it is undoubtedly easier to instil new ideas
into a university when you're starting from seratch, we
don't think Dr. Shrum is being radical, or—heavens—
untraditional at all. Rather, it seems he's just using his
Lefs hope they never start a haircut  fad like the Beatles around here.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
Contrary to the views expressed in Thursday's Ubyssey, I feel that the Frosh
Undergraduate Society has an
important role to play on
While admittedly Frosh
council has not been effective
this year, the fault does not
lie in the conception of a FUS.
As Frosh president, I am
mainly responsible for the
poor showing this year, but
freshmen themselves must
shoulder some of the blame.
I think that the following
suggestions will not only improve the FUS, but make "I
am a Frosh" sound just as
good as "first year science."
Elect the class representatives in the first two weeks
of the fall term and have
them organized into frosh
week, academic, intramurals,
homecoming, newsletter and
public relations committees.
The previous year's executive will be responsible for
the   organization   and   chair
ing of these committees until
the new executive has been
elected. These committees will
involve the class reps in the
organization of Frosh events.
This would also mean the
new Frosh executive will
have an organization behind
them when they take office
instead of having to set one
up themselves.
Set an academic minimum
for the Frosh executive to
ensure that they will have
time to devote to student government and will not have to
quit because of Christmas
failures. Suggested mini-
mums: president, 80 per cent;
others, 70 per  cent.

Disillusioned social worker
He's 'sick and bitter'
Wallace du Temple, 23-
year-old former B.C. social
worker, is going to become
a pipeline roughneck.
He can make more money
at that than he did as a social worker with the B.C. government.
And he advises prospective
graduates of UBC's school of
social work that they might
as well do the same rather
than go to work for the B.C.
Department of social work.

Du Temple, who was fired
after writing a letter to Premier Bennett protesting
conditions in the department,
visited UBC Monday to talk
to a social work class.
He was to have resigned in

Temple graduated from UBC
last year with a B.A. in history  and  classical  studies.
He planned to work in the
department for about a year,
then return to university to
get a degree in social work.
"I'm not interested in social
work any more," he said.
"Now I hope to come back
and get a degree in anthropology."

"There are no adequate facilities in Brock for card-

Vance was answering a complaint by frosh who said there
was no place to play cards
since the AMS closed down the
Brock card room.
Frosh have taken to playing
cards in the College Library
and numerous complaints have
been made to the library staff.
Vance said the old cardroom
in Brock had to be closed
down two years ago when the
AMS lost control over the
gambling that went on.
He said card-playing is permitted in clubrooms in Brock

Du Temple said he was not
speaking out of turn when he
wrote letters to heads of all
three parties in the legislature
criticizing methods and services in the department.
The letters provoked a
storm of criticism of government welfare policies.
''A civil servant has two responsibilities—one as a civil
servant to work through his
department and not speak
publicly," Du Temple said.
"He has a second responsibility as a citizen.

"That responsibility supercedes his responsibility as a
civil servant when the policies within his department are
morally indefensible.

Mrs. Moran, and four other

were suspended for criticizing welfare officials' reaction
to the Du Temple letter.
"I'm very sorry to see it,"
said Du Temple.

"A community recreation
worker is needed as well as

The provincial government
owes a responsibility to this
area because it is getting fantastic amounts of revenue
from the oil and gas fields,
he  said.
Du Temple also criticized
the federal government.
"I'm fed up with the department of Indian Affairs," he
said. "There is no Indian Affairs social worker, no one
teaching the Indians trades,
and no Indian health nurse."
He charged that there is no
co-ordination between the Indian Affairs department and
the   provincial  government.
"They say we are supposed
to look after child welfare on

you do that without dealing

Flick & Devenyi:
good; not great
The fine arts gallery is currently showing photographs by Bob
Flick and Denes Devenyi. Both sets of pictures include several
studies that one stops at and comes back to, but neither set really
"comes off."
These are two exercises,
one quite well unified and
done with some care. The
photographers no doubt derived some experience and satisfaction from them. But neither group of pictures more
than begins to realize the potential of its subject material.
Several of Flick's photographs may well be called
"Haiku on film", to borrow a
phrase that a viewer has ascribed to Mr. Flick's entire
set in a comment written into
a visitors' book at the door.
•    •    •
There are several contrasting studies of swirling water
that are free and moving, that
evoke a mood, as do the Haiku.
There are also several fine
rocks; surrounded by blurrs of
rushing water. A high key
photo of grass has become an
engaging  abstraction.
Unfortunately all of Flick's
pictures are printed too small.
The kind of subject he has
chosen mlust be revelled in.
There must be enough in the
tension, and there are not.
enough empty spaces to contain the key lines. Some of the
ferns, for example, have lovely
curled leaves, but the swirling
lines are cramped in the composition.
•    •    *
Flick has a fairly good mastery of darkroom technique,
but he did let a few pictures
become too muddy or too dark.
However, since he is obviously looking for intensity, it's
probably well to err toward
the dark side.
Leaves, grass, ferns, raindrops and all the other "lovely" things one may see about
one must make up more than
just a pattern. Many of Flick's
pictures stop at pattern. A
mood must be evoked. Even
then it is very difficult to
make pictures of this kind
more than light entertainment.
Devenyi's subject material is
the loneliness of people, particularly that of derelicts on
park benches, children in play-
picture to produce a kind of
intoxication. Something that is
uninteresting on an 8x10 may
well become captivating on a
16x20 or an even larger print.
• • •
Also, many of Flick's pictures are static — a matter of
composition. Too many key
areas are in one of the four or
five "dead spots" of a rectangle.   There   is   not   enough

grounds, and sidewalk evangelists attempting to call down
fire. It seems, to this reviewer
anyway, the more consequential of the two exhibits in the

upraised hands probably has
the the most arresting face that
Devenyi was able to capture.
Here is a man trying to make
himself heard and understood.
but eliciting only a laugh, a
stare or a cold shoulder. Failure is stamped on his face.
There are other notable
faces — lonely enough, but
often not lost enough within
the picture. The cropping on
many pictures was too close.
This kind of stuff must have
expanses of flaking walls, empty streets, trash, and what have
you, to set it off.
It is regrettable that the
series on Oral Roberts was not
better done. There is too much
of the salvation huckster, the
charlatan, and not enough of
the lonely and confused victims.
The use of trickery is legitimate, I suppose, but it cannot
be obvious. Vaseline to create
blurs, dirty mirrors for the
same purpose, dodging to give
an evangelist a phony halo,
and distortions to make an
egghead out of a crackpot, all
detract seriously from the
stated theme.
•    •    •
The theme, by the way, is
stated too explicitly and too
verbosely in the photographer's posted introduction to his
work. If the pictures are to
say something one should let
them do it on their own.
Devenyi has printed his
photographs quite well. The
gritty grays and rich blacks
are exactly what the subject
material demands.
The entire show was not
very well hung. Some of the
groupings of Flick's pictures,
particularly, are disturbing
The pictures within them cancel each other out. And the
dirty grey backdrop doesn't
do his or Devenyi's pictures
any good.

of Doodlin', along with Samba
Tubado, were the most successful of the do-it-yourself arrangements.
Almost all of the performers
played solos, adding good variety to the group and showing
the different ideas of each
musician. The best solo work
was in Ray Sikora's Western
Union, a round-robin solo arrangement.

Lynn McNeil's vocal work
with the rhythm section was
quite effective in leading up to
the band's tunes. However, the
thick texture of the arrangement tended to bury the lyrics,
especially in Moonlight in Vermont.

Concert in Brock Hall last
Thursday was an unqualified success.
Top. honors go to the rhythm

The ensemble within each
section played very well, especially the saxophones. During the first half'of the program, the total effect was marred a few times by improper
co-ordination between the sections; fortunately this tendency was overcome after the intermission.

The combination of quartet
improvisation and written orchestral score is certainly a
new concept, and a challenging
one. Many composers, notably
Aaron Copland, have written
jazz rhythms into their compositions, but the works have
been written, structured
wholes at their completion.
These more recent works are
not like this. There are three
new aspects to this style of
music. First, the orchestra can
dominate the score; second, the
orchestra and quartet can act
as partners in counterpoint, the
orchestra playing its written
score, the quartet improvising;
and third, the orchestra can be
silent or provide a background
over which the quartet can
I feel both these albums
have a great deal of merit,

concert repertoire. And I find
the wide-open future they imply very exciting to visualize.

PETER SELLERS as  President Muffley in  the  war  room, from  Dr.
Strangelove: or How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Love the Bomb.
Qomsidij about
Stanley Kubrick's Dr.
Strangelove: or How I Learned
to Stop Worrying & Love the
Bomb (Coming next week at
the Park) is a refreshing
change from the plodding message films of people like Stanley Kramer and Otto Prem-
inger. Dr. Strangelove is a
comedy about the end of civilization. The book on which the
film is based, Red Alert, could
well have been the stuff for another Kramer epic (lasting, of
course, three hours or more
without an intermission)
wherein he could expound,
once again, on the fate of mankind. In the hands of Stanley
Kubrick and scenario writers
Peter George (also the author
of the book) and Terry Southern, Dr. Strangelove has become an extremely palatable
and convincing film. It convinces us that there is, really, a
danger of nuclear holocaust
while,at the same time, delighting us with the performances
of Sellers, Hayden and George
C. Scott.
Even without the priceless
scenario, the film would have
carried itself on the performances of these three — with a
delightful bit part by Tracy
Reed as "Miss Foreign Affairs". George C. Scott achieves near perfection in the
role of the gum-chewing, tummy - scratching General
Turgidson    —   the    practical
man's general. His performance is something to be seen
to be believed. He manages to
outdo even the master Peter
Sellers who plays three! parts
in the film.
Sterling Hayden is also well
cast and comes up with his
best acting role of the lunatic
John Bircher, General Jack
Ripper, who sets off the nuclear panic by attempting to
"get those Ruskies before they
get us". There is one particularly powerful close-up of him,
chewing his cigar as he lets
Mandrake, his British Exchange Executive Officer
(Sellers) in on the "international Communist conspiracy"
— fluoridation.
Now we come to the master,
three-in-one Peter Sellers. His
role as Mandrake is average.
His  part   as   Merkin   Muffley,
the President of the United
States (see your local Rabbi for
the pun on the name) is extremely well-done, complete
with an almost^American accent. But Sellers' performance
of the U.S. ex-Nazi nuclear expert, Dr. Strangelove, is probably his best work to date, including the trade union boss in
I'm All Right, Jack.
In accordance with the brilliant acting of the principals,
the minor players (with the exception of the Russian ambas-.
sador) all come up to the same
high standards — Slim Pickens as a drawling bomber-pilot;
Keenan Wynn as the paratroop
colonel who almost causes the
end of the world by refusing
to damage a Coca-Cola machine; Tracy Reed as General
Turgidson's   secretary-mistress.
•    •    •
It is amazing that anyone
could, or would, make a comedy about the end of civilization. After all, we must be serious about these things.
Well, Kramer has been serious about it for ages — On
The Beach, Judgement at Nur-
emburg, — and all he has managed to do is create a farce out
of reality — and a dull farce
at that. Stanley Kubrick starts
with a farce and ends by convincing us of reality. It just
goes to show who has talent
and who hasn't.

Sir Ouv drops
non-drop rule
A plan to allow students
to the centre of campus will
Sir Ouvry Roberts, UBC's
traffic Czar, said Thursday students would be able to drop
their passengers in a specially
laid out zone at the north end
of C-lot.
He said the drop-off zone is
primarily designed for holders
of C-lot stickers, but could
also be used by students who
park in B-lot.
"A lot of people won't be
able to use it until after 9:30
a.m., because of one-way restrictions on Agronomy road,"
Sir Ouvry said.
"It will be a pilot project,
designed to make it easier for
students, and also to see if it
is feasible to move the dropoff zone closer to the center of
campus in the. future."
He said to get to the zone,
students should drive on their
normal routes to C-lot, and
would be directed from there
by traffic patrolmen.
Sir Ouvry said it was essential that the roadways to
and from the lot be kept clear.
"If students don't obey the
regulation, it will be necessary to impound their cars," he
said. "Otherwise there will be
too much congestion and the
plan will not work."
He said the proposed Student Union Building would
contain facilities for loading
and unloading of passengers,
but a temporary zone would
have to be utilized until the
building is built.
"We hope students make
use of this convenience, because it is impossible to let
student cars on campus," he
said. "There are just too many
of them."

UBC's SOCCER TEAM lost 4-1   to Vancouver   Firemen in the second Annual game played
at Varsity Stadium to raise funds for muscular distrophy. Biggest difference in the game
was on the scoreboard, as Birds' forwards   failed to finish off some' good opportunities.
Firefighters douse UBC
in exhibition soccer game
Hockey weekend
Birds bid
for laurels
This weekend the western intercollegiate hockey championship will be divided up and the Thunderbirds hope to
a piece of it.
The Thunderbirds were defeated 4-1 by Vancouver Firefighters Thursday noon at
varsity stadium, but have a
good chance to be admitted
into the Pacific Coast Soccer
It was the UBC team's first
loss in two years to a Coast
League team.
Hoping to show well against
the senior team to better their
chances for admission into the
PCSL the Birds seemed overanxious, missing several scoring opportunities.
Attending today's game a-
long with 2000 students was
Coast League president Bill
Commlenting on B i r d's
chances of admission into the
senior circuit he said, "UBC's
situation is greatly improved
over last year and I personally would like to see them in
for one year on a trial basis."
But he pointed out that it
is up to the rest of the clubs
UBC hosts
UBC plays host to one of the
WCIAA championships this
year although it will likely be
the last.
This weekend the UBC volleyball team will host the University of Manitoba, University of Alberta (Calgary) and
the University of Alberta (Edmonton) of the WCIAA and the
University of Washington and
Victoria College.
The WCIAA teams will be
competing for the University
of Manitoba Alumni Trophy
now held by Manitoba.
All the teams will compete
for the Western CAN-AM Intercollegiate Open Championship trophy. This trophy is for
annual competition.
The teams will play a double
round robin starting Friday at
7 p.m. and continue Saturday
at 9 a.m.
currently in the Coast League
to vote for UBC at the
League's general meeting in
six weeks.
This means the university
athletic office and soccer
coach Joe Johnson will have
lots of lobbying to swing the
vote  for  UBC.
Last year the vote went 7-1
against the Thunderbird's admittance.
One of the biggest problems to be solved is setting
the schedule.
Birds take off two weeks at
Christmas and at Easter while
the Coast League continues.
Also the PCSL continues into
May for clubs which finish
in the top four positions and
advance  into the playoffs.
Since the second term is
finished by the first of May
Coast League officials want
assurance that UBC will be
able   to   keep   the   Birds   to
gether for the playoffs if they
should make them.
Scorers in the game for
Firefighters were forwards
Bob Babcock, Jim Blundell,
Dave Hutton and halfback
Bob McKay. Firemen's first
two goals came on a indirect
penalty shot and a direct penalty shot.
Friday and Saturday nights
the UBC team meets U of
Saskatchewan Huskies at the
winter sports centre and U of
Alberta (Edmonton) plays U of
Manitoba in Winnipeg.
Manitoba with a one game
lead is the only team which
could win the title outright.
If they win both games
against Alberta nobody can
catch them. But barring this
any two of UBC, Alberta and
Manitoba could tie for first
which is most likely.
If the varsity club ties with
Alberta the ensuring playoffs
would be held in Edmonton
but if the Birds tie with Manitoba the games will be played
Besides seeing the two most
important games of the season
hockey fans will be treated to
more   promotional   razamataz.
Cheerleaders, the pep band,
a Engineers vs. Aggies broomball spectacular, a free skating
session after Friday's game and
a dance after Saturday's contest are the extra attractions
arranged by the athletic office.
The Birds are healthy for the
games with the  Huskies  who
manager Bill Sturn says have
always been a tough team for
UBC to beat.
This year the Birds have
split with Saskatchewan, losing 7-4 and winning 4-2 in
If the varsity club is eliminated it will be the final appearance for several graduating Birds.
Peter Kelly, Stu Gibbs and
Bill Bowles are all graduating
this year.
Graduate students Bob Parker and Don Rodgers have also
indicated they will not be
playing for the club next year.

Rugby Birds off
for World Cup
The UBC Thunderbirds and the University of California
hoop loop
tied tight
Basketball Birds and Huskies
appear to be on a collision
Should they both win their
remaining games in league play
they will end in a tie.
A tie would mean that the
teams must play a two-game
total-point series at UBC to decide the West's representative
in the Canadian finals in Windsor on March 13-14.
UBC made the trip last year
and finished third in the four-
team tournament.
Birds travel to Calgary this
weekend for their final two
games on the road.
The Birds, who currently
boast a 10-2 record in WCIAA
competition, are confident of
keeping on the trail of the pace-
setting University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The Huskies are sporting a
12-2 record as they move into
Edmonton for their final two
league games.
UBC meets the same Golden
Bears in War Memorial Gym
the following weekend.
The Canadian Intercollegiate
Athletics News Letter, which
weekly rates the top college
basketball teams across the nation, has suddenly moved UBC
up to third position. Previously the Birds have been rated between sixth and eighth.
Golden Bears open their annual four-game World Cup
rugby competition in Berkley,
Thunderbird coach Albert
Laithwaite expects the Bears
to be good. They boast four
international stars, one of
whom formerly played for the
New Zealand All-Blacks.
In addition, Cal has run over
its opponents Oregon State and
Southern California by scores
of 19-3 and 23-0.
UBC lost to Oregon State 5-3,
but Laithwaite points out that
the game was played on a
muddy field.
"We could have beaten them
under better weather conditions," he said.
Coach Laithwaite plans no
changes in his lineup, and has
selected six spares to make the
"The team is in fine shape,"
he said. "Everyone is strong
and healthy."
California's scrum, anchored-
by football lineman Stan Dzura,
averages over 220 pounds.
Two speedy recruits from Cal
football teams have been running wild thus far. One of
them, Tom Blanchfield, has
scored 30 points in two games.
Blanchfield was Cal's leading
ground gainer last fall.
UBC and California meet
again Monday in the second
Cup game, and then the Birds
move to Los Angeles for a bout
with UCLA's XV.
World Cup competition resumes in late March, when the
Birds host the Bears in Vancouver.
UBC's wrestling team travels
to Edmonton this weekend to
take part in the WCIAA championships.
This week is the first week
of the championship for most
men's and women's sports.
