'"PHE change in form which last year's Annual introduced was one
■*- worthy to become the basis of a new tradition. We felt, therefore,
that we could do no better than follow in the footsteps of our predecessors
and this Totem—with the exception of some very minor changes—has
faithfully upheld the standard already established. There are many
Annuals more imposing; but there is none, we venture to say, that more
characteristically expresses the essential spirit, the individuality of the
student body, than our Totem. Its very slenderness, and, by the same
token, its possibility of further improvement, make it a fitting record of
our ambition, our youth and our potentialities for future development.
Arts 77
Father Time:
"They come and they shall go,
'Tis thus and ever must be so.
Now,   infant   Twenty-seven,   take
thy charge—
Through four short years, speed on,
Thy name to make or mar!"
Scene   1—The
Shacks in Fair-
The scene
opens with five
hundred - odd
wide - eyed
Freshmen and
Freshettes starting upon; their
University career. They are
all known
under the name
Arts '27. This
is the last class
to enjoy the
good old form
of i n i tiation
with a bonfire
and feed afterwards. It is at
this period o f
University history that the
Heinz Band is
i n s tituted, b y
the above-mentioned class, having the prophetic 57
varieties of instruments. There is a
student campaign on for funds for
the new University, and the Freshmen have erected a shoe-shine parlour; it is a recognized fact that there
are more shiny shoes in Varsity than
ever before or since.   The class, hav-
ing caught at once the fever known
as "Class Spirit," turns itself toward
every phase of college life and marks
itself as a youthful prodigy by capturing the Governor's Cup. Such is
Arts '27's debut!
ACT II.    Scene 1 —
Setting same as Act I.
Some of the
familiar characters are absent,
but many are
still there as
Sophomores to
fulfil the pro-
m i s e of the
Freshman year.
In athletics the
class shows its
ability by winning the Arts
'20 relay, the
team comprised
of McWilliams,
Mulhern, Elliot,
Mac Kay, McKinnon, and
Parmley. A t
this stage Arts
'27 has tjhree
more cups to its
credit ; once
more the coveted Governor's
Cup, the Faculty Cup, and
t h e Arts '25
Relay Cup for the girls. It is honored by having among its number
two members of the cast of the
Spring Play; one is the leading lady,
Bice Clegg, the other Avis Pumphrey.
And last but not least, must be mentioned the excellent Class Party in
the form of a Chinese Party where
(Continued on Page Forty-one)
Confined at Fairview and Point Grey for
a period not exceeding four years, but just
long enough to attract the name of Dooley.
Commonplace as it may seem, the name has
attracted considerable renown in many circles.
To the Swimming Club, Dooley has been a
godfather. He has nourished the growth of the
organization to a position commanding attention from all corners of the campus. Work
and enthusiasm are his middle name. While
not at work winning the Banff meet he may be
seen    .   Oh,   well,   all   humanity   has   its
Our young Philosopher. Blanche has taken
nearly every Philosophy course at Varsity,
and all she craves (at times) is a quiet place
to study. But this is by no means her chief
occupation, for she seems to find time to
attend all the social functions. She was Vice-
President of the class in her Freshman year,
and throughout her undergraduate career has
been one of the most popular members of
Arts '27.
Stan's capabilities are many. Although
a Chemistry Honors Student, he still finds
time to exercise his resonant, bass voice
in the Musical Society. In his Junior year,
when not busy cracking "vile puns," he spent
his spare time in looking after the advertising
department of the "Ubyssey." In the capacity
of Advertising Manager to this publication he
succeeded in balancing "ads. vs. much" to
the entire satisfaction both of the student body
and of the pub. staff.
"I gotta new woman."
Still, in spite of this handicap, Varsity could
stand a few more like Bert. In fact, we wish
he were twins. Like many of Varsity's stars,
Bert comes from Victoria. He is a prominent
member of the Players' Club, having appeared
in the last two Christmas plays in addition to
being Treasurer of his class. Besides being an
international debater, Bert can rattle a wicked
hoof on the road, winning his lap last year in
the Arts '20 relay. But with all these activities
and the added handicap of only twenty-four
hours in a day, the brainy boy can still get
good averages.
A gruaduate of Agriculture '25, Bill has
spent a year doing post-graduate work at Iowa
State Agricultural College. Although he has
been with '27 for one year, we trust that he
will maintain his usual high scholastic standing
as an Arts man. One thing is sure that Bill
has made a name for himself at Badminton
this year. He starred with the Varsity team
at Kelowna by defeating the singles champion
of the interior, and later as a runner-up for
the B.C. singles title. In short, a most welcome
addition to '27.

Bishop did not enter the circle of '27 until
his third year. But once in he has given us no
trouble. He comes and goes quiet and unassuming. Report has it that he is a mighty worker
before the Lord. When he returns to his flock,
a full-fledged minister, he will be much
improved—we doubt not—by our very exhilarating company.
"My kingdom for a horse!"
Mary has travelled far, although not always
on horseback. Great Britain, the Prairies,
the Kootenays, however, were only sign posts,
to Vancouver and the U.B.C. This is her first
year with us and the "Black" mystery is that
she graduates with Arts '27. The explanation
of this would read like A, B, C to Sherlock
C—Courses in the regular Summer session.
Mary is interested in the Musical Society,
the Classics Club and sometimes in Grass
Ernie—commonly so-called—has two great
ambitions—a first-class in French 4a, and to
beat a Packard with his "can." The first is
possible; but, despite several hectic attempts,
the second will doubtless remain unfulfilled.
Varsity dances, La Causerie, skating, a majo
in Economics, and wondering why Varsity
clocks are always ten minutes fast in the
morning, keep his time fully occupied. As far
as is known, Ernie's one and only aversion is
the speed cop at Tenth and Sasamat.
Formerly a member of Arts '24, Anne came
to us in our Junior year. In spite of her two
years' school teaching, her glorious bob and
frank smile savor more of the frivolous Freshette than of the dignified Senior. Anne majors
in French and English, but somehow finds
time for numerous meetings, teas and shows.
You may call him "Al." or "Bert" or
"Albert." Bert is perhaps best known for his
talking ways and for his unpopular rendition
of popular songs in various unhallowed places,
such as the common room, caf., Ford cars,
and club dances. He is a gentleman with a
desire for education, and many of his activities
are relegated to the library. A great love for
all things French induced Bert to become a
member of La Canadienne. If approached
carefully he is guaranteed not to bite, although
he may bark.
Annie comes from Bristol, like her great
ancestor, Sebastian Cabot. Whether she will
follow in his steps and discover unknown
lands, the fates alone can tell. At present her
time is divided between unravelling the
mysteries of abstruse French authors and
analysing the aesthetic appeal of cafeteria
dainties. Her outside interests are many and
varied. A few of them are music, canaries and
short men. We wish her a successful future,
and may she never be without her cup of
golden tea.
Another of those birds from Victoria, Ashley's
first two years of University life were spent at
Victoria College. Since coming among us, he
has made his presence felt in the Musical
Society. He is also guardian of the shekels in
"La Canadienne" and Vice-President of the
newly formed Chess Club. Courses in English
and History, with a little Economics mixed
in for good measure, have assured Ashley a
varied and successful college course.
"She's not very tall, but it's nice to be small;
Has labs more than one; but is ready for fun.''
May is one of the six who strive to produce
bigger and better bacteria on the top floor of
the Science Building. Even the "bugs" cheer
up when her shining countenance appears, for
who could be lonesome when May is around?
In her more serious moments she splashes in
Chalmer's Tank, or adds her contribution to
the college warblers.
One of the best all-round members of our
class, is Norm. A keen student of Economics
and History, his pet hobby is to spend most
of his lectures discussing perplexing problems
with patient professors. He has been a member
of the Varsity orchestra, has played rugby,
has represented Varsity in the City Debating
League and this year has debated against the
University of Washington. Furthermore, he has
been known to execute marvellous contortions
o'er a dance floor. A future legal light, or
captain of industry is Norm.'s ambition.
Winnie is a delightful humbug. She tells the
most ridiculous stories with such an angelic
countenance that you are completely taken in.
Latin and French honours, lengthy hours in
the stacks, frequent visits to learned profs.—
all the ingredients of an intellectual.
Winnie is a delightful chatterbox. Woe
betide you if she settles besides you in the
library! If you have work to do, depart immediately; linger and you are lost. Her Latin
and French are almost equally fluent; but she
only exhibits them at La Canadienne and the
Classics Club.

In spite of his name, "Sweet William" is
the spoiled  darling of  the Players'   Club,  all
Freshettes, and Well, who doesn't know?
When he isn't in the Common Room "bumming" cigarettes—no, he's not at lectures—
he's on that same ole trail with his dear ole
pipe. As a "debonair young lover" in "The
Usual Thing" he justified his name and,
according to latest rumor, he has won further
fame by making the cast of the Spring Play.
"She's not very big, but she's cute and she's
And she .knows a whole lot for her age and
her size."
Dorothy has been a busy girl since she
started Varsity. As a Freshette she served on
the class executive; as a Sophomore was Vice-
President of '27; as a Junior, the hard-working
Secretary of the A.M.S.; and as a Senior the
ever thoughtful and popular President of the
W.U.S. Dorothy's few pet diversions are class
parties, Council meetings and Musical Society
Stuart is a firm believer in education. To
prove his ardent conviction he has already
devoted two years to teaching, which he intends to follow as his life work. It is recognized
that he more than holds his own in all his
studies, particularly in English and History,
in which he has specialized. Those who know
him intimately will avow that Stuart is a young
man full of promise; one thing, also, they are
definitely sure of, is that they find him a
gentleman  through  and through.
"A violet by a mossy stone." An apt
quotation for Grace. But it has been said that
she is not hidden from the eye in Latin at
least. In spite of the fact that three languages
engross her time, Grace is really quite normal.
She spends most of her spare time at the
library and the rest attending meetings of the
Classics and German Club. Somebody once
said, "Grace by name and gracious by nature."
That's our grace!
Don. came from Kaslo to join us in our
Sophomore year and started by winning a
University scholarship for heading his class.
Since then he has been an honor student in
English, and as such is interested in Spencer,
Houseman and the more racy episodes from
the "Canterbury Tales." He is also endowed
with the miraculous faculty of proving any
given argument against his position to be a
platitude. Besides this, Don. is a member of
the Letters' Club, and as senior editor of the
"Ubyssey" he is the author of the scintillating
Distinguished both in name and appearance!
Keeps a violin and a real talent for music a
dark secret. Secretary of La Canadienne in
her third year and now an active member.
Loves going to shows and teas, tripping to
Los Angeles and making first classes in French
and English. Mollie is full of fun and not so
shy as she pretends to be. Her many friends
at U.B.C. are a proof of wide popularity.
One of those strange mortals who prefer
wading the Pitt Meadows flats before dawn
for Mallards to dancing, and fossils to co-eds.
His particular interest is Geology, with leanings
to Paleontology. Can be seen daily in the
Petrology lab. looking at interference colours
both through the microscope and through
the window. Is a North Vancouverite inhabiting
the wilds of the North Shore. Favorite expression: "Only heard on the G.S.C."
Hilda, addicted to that strange disease,
mountain climbing, spends much time washing
dishes at the Outdoors Club cabin. One who
knows says she looks as nice when skiing in
a woolly sweater as when dancing in her
prettiest dress. Being interested in Geology,
she will tell you the name of any rock or fossil,
provided it is labelled. But when she says,
"Say, whadda you mean by that?" she is
usually talking to Science men on subjects far
more interesting than trilobites.
Here we have the original fair-haired boy,
the envy of peroxide blondes and the despair
of bewitching women. Herbert's dignity will
discourage all but the most persistent, but
those who do persist will find brilliance,
modesty, and friendly sincerity. With the
exception of occasional sorties on to the football field, most of his activities have been
outside the University, so his feats as a rifleman
are almost unsung. Any good calling from
military strategy to banking may yet claim
him as its own.
D.L.C.—Dorothy Loves Chocolates. In other
words, this is her favorite sport. Chocolate
bars to put on weight; badminton to take it
off. Result? The happy medium. Her Saturday
nights are always "full"—Classics Club meetings or badminton. Studies never bother
Dorothy, except at exam, time—she is too busy
playing bridge, going to movies and teas
but she manages to find time to "take in"
lectures on Philosophy, English, French and
Latin. For further information about D.L.C,
see "Winnifred."

Charlotte is the will-o'-the-wisp of '27—
when sought for never to be found. Her never
failing interest in any subject makes her a
pleasant companion at all times. In her
younger days she was much interested in
acrobatics, but gave up the study when the
chandelier in a certain Victoria hotel parted
company with the ceiling. She now confines
her studies to a much safer course, namely,
History and English. She arouses enthusiasm
in any project with her vim, vitality and vigor.
Coming from the chaste encompassing of
Kootenay mountain lands, Max. is, forsooth,
a bifave wight, untouched by the supersubtleties
of city decadence. He fulfills his function as
chief reporter with characteristic enthusiasm;
but his real hobby is Canadian rugby. Max. has
been forced to give up the game on account
of injuries; however, as President of the Club,
he remains the big push. After passing first
in the province in senior matric, Max. has
continued his first class honors. His declamations usually hover around English 6 and
English 9.
No one, seeing this little red-headed girl
wandering about the campus, would ever
believe that she revels in Mathematics and
occasionally carries on scientific investigation
in the Physics lab. She is guaranteed to be
the smallest member of the Maths. Club; but
as President of the Gym. she keeps the rest
of them stepping. Favorite outdoor sport:
Telling the time by the sun dial. Lillian firmly
intends to teach high school, which makes us
wish we could start our education over again.
"Thy modesty's a candle to thy merit."
Of a very unassuming nature, he is known
intimately, perhaps, to a small circle of friends,
and those mostly of the ecclesiastical element.
He is a diligent and faithful student who takes
little interest in University beyond his studies.
Philosophy, in all its branches, is his strong
forte, with a dash of Biology and English 14.
He expects to spend his life furthering God's
Kingdom in the out-of-the-way places of the
Hester is one of our bright stars from
Victoria, joining us in her third year. Since
then her winning personality has gained for
her many friends at U.B.C. It is hard to
believe that Hester is one of the mighty
Seniors, for in spite of majoring in English
and Philosophy her cheery disposition has
not been marred. Hester has the enviable
characteristic of being able to make high
marks and at the same time of enjoying life
to the full. Plaintive query: "What can you
do without it? You can't do a thing."
"Gertie's" college days are filled with a
succession of labs., for she is the only honor
student in Bacteriology. In spite of this fact,
she has found time to hold executive positions
in the Chemistry and Biological Clubs, and
as President of the Women's Swimming Club,
has managed the team for two successful
seasons. She is also one of the pianists of the
Musical Society and at times has even been
known to sing (??).
Wilful, gay, inclined to be flirty;
Bubbling with laughter, and there you have
Harry Dee came to Varsity from Victoria
College, where he served in his Sophomore
year as President of the Students' Council.
Soon after his arrival here he was elected
Secretary of the Arts Men's Undergraduate
Society. He is a member of the Historical
Society, and his interpretation of Napoleon
in Shaw's "Man of Destiny" last year was a
distinct achievement. Harry is also a member
of the Men's Literary Society. Having already
had teaching experience, he intends to continue
his work in the educational field.
Appearance scholarly, but deceiving—a
gown, spectacles, severe coiffure and stately
bearing; tastes, varied; ideas, original; judgment sound—resulting in "active membership '
(not to be confused with passive membership)
in La Canadienne and Der Deutsche Verein,
where she "orates" fluently; in the Classics
Club, where she discusses the relative merits
of dead languages; and in the Musical Society,
where   she   warbles    with   the   gleeful   ones.
"Sua cuique voluptas"
When James is near, just make sure you
have not forgotten those Greek, Latin or
Hebrew words you once knew. They prove
very useful in keeping up your courage while
you are talking to him. Remember, it never
pays to gamble with reputation. In spite of
the fact, however, that he is greatly interested
in ancient languages, he has easily won the
admiration of those who know him because of
his deep sincerity and strength of character.
He is the founder and President of the "Student
Christian Fundamentalist Society."
"That we should bear the cross is Thy command,
Die to the world and live to self no more."
Three year's Hebrew make Ester unique in
almost every respect and the only co-ed
officially recognized in ecclesiastic circles.
Academically speaking, she has one consuming
passion—classical languages—while a Greek,
Latin or Hebrew lexicon prove a great delight
to her. Apart from her heavy course she
performs efficiently the secretarial duties of
the Fundamentalist Society.

Joan is the champion conversationalist of
Arts '27 and wields a wicked pun. Although
she claims intimate knowledge of Virgil and
his "Aenid." she spends her Sundays Dickering at chess and frequently indulges in ye
round Shakesperian oath. She is quite the
reverse of Archaic. We know for a fact that
she is addicted to strong drink, in the form of
black tea, and movies, in the form of John
Gilbert. We fear that Joan's bill at the photographer's is going to be quite a tall order,
if she complies with the wishes of her iriends;
she has an annoying way of making everyone
who knows her want her picture.
Norm, hails from Britannia, where he still
spends his summers as a hard rock miner.
Having majored in Chemistry and Zoology he
intends to enter on the study of medicine.
This course, combined with a minor in fussing,
has kept him well occupied. He has been a
prominent member of the Outdoors Club and
a regular attendant at all hikes. He was also
prominent in the old Boxing Club. Major
Varsity dances have been his failing, but he
has also been quite adept at crashing the gates
at class parties.
Grace is noted for the charming dimple in
her chin. She is one of the select Bacteriological
Six and when not gossiping in the library may
be seen starting for the Science Building to
study the many mysterious microbes. She is
a regular attendant at the Biological Discussion
Club and always does her share toward increasing the amount of levity and decreasing
the quantity of sandwiches.
"Ladies prefer blondes."
Tom is a member of our relay team, has a
quiet, unassuming manner and an uncanny
luck in class draws. Chemistry and Zoology
keep him pretty busy, but Tom finds time for
all the hops and Chemistry Society. Favorite
expression: "Raise you two."
"The deeds of mighty men have their
birth in great hopes."
Ethel's interest in the Women's Literary
Society has led her to fill ably the position of
Secretary of that organization in her Senior
year, to take part in two inter-class debates
and to give valuable assistance to many
students less experienced in forensic art. Her
spare time is usually spent in writing first-class
essays, discussing Victorian thought, conversing fluently in French and attending the
Capitol. Her success in producing short stories
leads to the conclusion that she intends to
follow journalism.
A studious maid, who wears the flowing gown
That calendars prescribe for undergrads.
History through horny specs, she gobbles down;
English  she numbers  with  her favorite fads.
Ride then with Jehu, speed along the way,
Into the path of the best marks that leads
Nearer to graduation every day;
Early to reap thy well-deserved needs.
Fairest of Farrises, with auburn hair,
Although activities thou  may'st shun,
'Round our dim halls thou art known everywhere.
Reigning a queen, modestly seeming one.
Illustrious  member of a famous  class;
So we must leave you, since this line's the las'.
Some men are men of might,
Others merely clever;
Some spend the stilly night
In studious endeavour.
Here's a man of finer plan
Than these or any like 'em—
Such a man a fellow can
Do nothing else but like 'iiu!
Evan   is   President   of   S.C.M.;   theologian
and  philosopher—sometimes;   a  noted  basso,
noisy, athletic, genial, yet serious withal.
Introducing the "dignified" member of
Council. At least that's what Jean thinks
she is. Do you think she looks very formidable?
Four years of college life have brought Jean
many good friends. Always happy and good-
natured and of a steadfast character which
inspires all who know her with confidence—
that's Jean. From her first year she has taken
a keen interest in all college activities. Member
of the Senior "A" basketball team, Vice-
President of her class, and finally President
of Women's Athletics all go to show her
capability. It is small wonder that Jean looks
orward to a  career in  commerce.
Herb, handles a course in Chemistry Honors,
where his chief aim is to subdue the benzene
ring. He is also a member of the class executive.
It doesn't seem possible that all that gentlemanly grace, which charms everyone who
meets him, was learned washing dishes on the
ocean liners on which he spends his summers.
He professes to know nothing about women—
at least, nothing for publication.
Though it is somewhat difficult to understand Jean, any attempt to do so is amply
repaid. A bit (abstracted) and aloof, markedly
philosophic and idealistic, she follows a course
all her own. Her chief interest is in her friends.
Jean's appreciation of human nature is also
manifested by her attention to History,
Sociology and a constant pursuit of "characters"
for English 6 short stories. She has been a
reporter on the Ubyssey and a member of the
Historical Society
Favorite remark: "Please don't hurry me."

Though Gladys is deeply interested in all
University activities, English and History are
her chief delights—and essays. Gladys is
always reading reference books for English
and History, even on the street car. She is one
of those lucky students who do not have
nine o'clock lectures; but in spite of this she
does not always arrive on time.
Her favorite occupation: Lending lecture
notes to classmates in need.
Bob takes part in all University activities,
yet gets his high second-class average as
regularly as clockwork. In some way or other,
he has maintained his air of somnolence through
all the Economic courses on the curriculum
and through too many of the English courses.
He has been Vice-President and Secretary of
the Swimming Club and brought honor to
Arts '27 both in local meets and at Banff.
Also he possesses occult powers of obtaining
tickets to the class parties of other years.
One has reason to ask: "Has not Bob belied
his casual manner?" It might be remembered
that Miss Anita Loos and "the Gillesp." have
certain views in common.
Always full of pep and usually in a hurry.
As our literary representative, Cora shows her
ability to fill an executive position. She indulges
very successfully in History and English and
aspires to public speaking. Her chief worries
in life are typing her essays and trying to be
on time. Like most worthwhile people she has
one weakness—nut bars.
Ronny has a very likeable personality.
Although most people think him "nice and
quiet," it may be true that "shy men are the
most dangerous." He is one of the bright
spots in the Historical Society and also takes
an interest in the German Club. He was
Secretary of the Tennis Club for two years
and is very good at the game itself. As for
studies, that relatively unimportant part of
university life, he has always obtained high
second-class averages.
Tho' her roguish eyes are blue and her hair
is black and wavy, Peggy isn't Irish. Hours
spent with her are always enjoyable, her
conversation is witty and full of original ideas
and optimism. Peggy makes breezy exits and
entrances for she is doing a dozen things at
once. Despite countless essays and her Letters
Club paper, she never misses anything worth
while at theatres. "I'm not going out any
more this week." This isn't taken seriously—
she can do a term's work in no time at all.
Page Eighteen THE     UNIVERSITY     OF     BRITISH     COLUMBIA
Came into Arts '27 in her second year after
having gained experience in the wide world.
Took to Philosophy and English for relaxation
and added a History course or two to prove
her unbounded ambition. In her third year
she was the sub-treasurer of her class and
distinguished herself by her ability in this
capacity. Besides her activities at college,
rumor has it that Orlo revels in culinary
Commonly known as "Houg," the man with
the sliding ears, is keenly interested in athletics.
At one time he excelled at feathers rugby, but
his recently acquired zeal for Economics has
so limited his time that he has restricted his
athletic interests to rugby, where he is a well
known figure. Such spare time as he has sees
him a joyful leader at our social gatherings.
Petite, winsome, vivacious—that's Phyllis!
She has shown her versatility in all phases
of college life from being an enthusiastic
member of the Players' and Letters Clubs to
the irresistible roles of a demure Lord Faunt-
leroy and wayward Peter Pan at High Jinks.
Her executive ability came to the fore in her
junior year, when she was Secretary-Treasurer
of the Women's Swimming Club and class
representative of the Women's Lit., and in her
senior year she filled the office of Vice-President
of the Women's Lit.
Honors in Physics, Vice-President of the
Player's Club and President of the Letters
Club. The main reason why Freshettes try
out for the Players' Club. In the Christmas
play Les. took the part of a drunkard with
remarkable ease and familiarity. Les.' scholastic
achievements have been the pride and envy
of the class since he joined us in our third
year. For some deep and mysterious reason
-he refuses to ride in the bus and may be seen
walking along the boulevard any evening,
except Saturdays or Sundays, between five and
six. Favorite expression: "But I mean to say."
Membership in the Historical Society, "La
Canadienne," the Players' Club, and participation is last year's spring play as "Mrs. Eynes-
ford-Hill" have not prevented Grace from
making first classes in History and French
Honors. She is witty, frank, unpunctual,
invariably arriving twenty minutes late for
lectures; but with a joyous smile and jocular
raillery she gets away with a whole lot even
with "the powers that be." Those of us who
know Grace best, however, will remember her
more for her original mind, her charm of
conversation and her gift of seeing beauty
where many miss it.

Undine do please us mightily except when
she do punish us with pungent puns, which
is mos frequent. All the afternoon very busy
till four o'clock writing thesis on the French
theatre, which she do find mighty strenuous
labor; thence to tea, to dine most sumptuous
on tea and buttered toast to her great pleasure.
Once a fortnight to Letters Club, where she
do wield a secretarial quill and listen with
some slight degree of interest to much edifying
discourse by the speakers, but none do please
her   like   own   or   are   of   like   merit.
Famous as President of the Track Club;
Runs the first lap in Arts '20 Relay,
And always wins it.
Never    defeated    as    marble    and    horseshoe
champion  of  1923-4.
Keen about History and French.
Elected  as  Vice-President of  Men's  Athletic,
Lately  helped  to  remodel  their  constitution.
Likes to wear bow ties and make ice cream; but
Intends to teach some day.
Occasionally steps out and
Tries anything once.
That's Frank!
"Shall we walk today?" Evelyn's stock
question. Walking and skating (when studies
allow; are her favorite recreations. Evelyn is
one of the most consistently cheerful members
of '27, despite a weakness for dead languages
which shows itself in first-class marks in Greek
and attendance at the Classics Club meetings.
Through her interest in religious matters she
is an enthusiastic member of the Fundamentalist
Society, and one guesses that some day she
will be found in a foreign mission.
"Yon Cassius has a lean and a hungry look."
Ken. is the "idle" of Chemistry 9 lab., an
enviable position demanding much social
prestige. He is on our relay team, and is an
enthusiastic attendant at all Chemistry Society
meetings, where light lunch is served. Chemistry
and Zoology are his failing. Ken. is a pre-
medical student and as such has our very
best wishes.
Jolly, happy and always gay,
Never too busy to go out of her way
For a friend who may want her
To work or to play
That's our Jean.
Though Jean does not allow many interferences with her classes and her interest in
the Historical Society, still she gets a great
deal of pleasure from movies, bridge and
especially auto rides. Very confidentially, we
predict for her a bright and prosperous future.
Mary is a firm believer in "Art for art's sake,"
as witness the margin of her notes. However,
a little of the instruction sinks in, which she
faithfully reproduces twice a year. As she
is a member of "La Causerie," we wonder if
she is planning an art career in Paris. When
she becomes rich and famous she is going to
buy a season's ticket to all the rugby games.
But why go in for pedagogy, Mary?
"Hub." is an aggressive member of the
first basketball squad, fights 'em hard with
the first Canadian rugby team and high jumps
with the best of them in intercollegiate track
circles. In his Junior year, as Secretary-
Treasurer of the Basketball Club, Hubert was
untiring in his efforts to make things go, and
he did, as all who know Hub. would naturally
conclude. Besides all these athletic interests
Hubert takes a keen delight in solving intricate
problems in Higher Calculus, having taken
all the Math, courses from 1 to 17.
Elspeth seems fond of graduations, since
she has arranged to have two, one with Arts
and the other with Nursing. Having decided
that Arts was sufficiently interesting, she is
taking Nursing as well, and in so doing combines the maximum of units with the minimum
of work. Her only worry seems to be the odd
lecture she has missed. Although Elspeth lives
here, her heart dwells with the "birds" in
Victoria. The greatest praise to be said of her
is: One could not wish for a truer friend than
Elspeth, the gayest of friends and the best of
"Bill" takes things as they come. It has
been rumored that he is taking "college"
pretty seriously this year. Although he majors
in Economics and minors in Government, he
has not allowed his course to interfere with a
many-sided university career. Bill has played
rugby and basketball, and has been a keen
supporter of Arts '27 in inter-class sports and
on its executive last year. The fact that he
manages to keep up his studies, work in the
city and step out with the "boys" is a big
tribute to his ability. Bill is never ruffled;
good humor has won him many friends in the
last four years and will be of value to him
in the future.
Originality and a touch of that peppy spirit
usually associated with auburn hair, combined
with sincerity and a radiating cheerfulness,
assure Ida's popularity. Anyone who has heard
her in a cafeteria discussion will testify to her
powers of persuasion and good judgment—
perhaps that's why she's such an efficient
President of the Musical Society. Moreover,
Ida is conscientious, for does she not feel
"called upon" to go out of an evening,

Fred is a Vernon youth, rather shy but very
popular amongst his friends. For the past three
years he has been a member of the Chemistry
Society and has recently joined the German
Club. Chemistry is his favorite subject and
even the visions of Chem. 8 seldom haunt
his dreams. Fred has long since ceased to be
afraid of first class marks, but regards them
as a matter of course. His occasional visits to
Victoria are no mystery to his friends.
Miscellaneous knowledge from many big books
Aids Mary in keeping her studious looks.
(Really and truly these books are a vice;
Yellow in cover and not always nice!)
Literature's led her a long way astray,
And she even has read Pepy's Diary, they say.

Nothing is either too great or too trivial
for Margaret to undertake. For the last three
years she has held positions on the class
executive, being, this year, our Vice-President.
In inter-class sport, also, she has done much
for her year. Although studying appears to be
a mere side issue with her, yet she usually
runs away with the scholarships. Everyone
must have his failing hers is butchering
bunnies— but we must forgive her that, as
she is a "pre-med." Abounding in spirits,
Margaret is always ready to do everything—
except while partaking of tea.
A canneryman by profession; a student by
persuasion; a tea hound by attraction; an
irresponsible dilettante by nature; and an all-
round good fellow. Don. has shone as half
on the second rugby team for three years,,
has worked diligently in executive positions
on the A.M.U.S. and the English Rugby Club.
In addition to these activities he has loafed
his way through various Economic, History
and   Philosophy   courses   with   uncanny   ease.

Kaye is one of those rare individuals who
can legitimately lay a double claim to the
adjective "brilliant." For he is not only
blessed with a "crowning glory" of this nature,
but he also shines as a student, to which fact
several scholarships, innumerable first classes
and an honors course in History testify. In
the eyes of the general student body, however,
his greatest achievement was his prize play,
"The Usual Thing." Among the less important
of his attainments—speaking comparatively,
of course—are included a membership in the
Letters Club and the presidency of the
Historical Society. A "brilliant" youth!
Margaret is an unusual young person; an
intriguing combination of demureness and
impishness; a happy blend of Peter Pan and
Puck; serious enough when necessary; capable;
Interests: Literature, drama, dancing, music,
badminton, etc., etc., and human nature.
Weaknesses: "Punch" and nonsense verse.
The boy with the skin you love to touch.
Comes from the Okanagan, where the bloom's
on the peach. He was once a Science man,
though you would not'believe^itfnow. Very
witty. Heard in Geology lecture: "Please,
sir, how can you tell how much gas there is
in a gas well." "Use a pilot-tube." "Can you
use this for oil, too." Yes, folks,! he's our
Equine Engineer.
"Learning is my sole delight."
Teaching up North held no attractions
comparable to those of a college course, so
in January, '24, we welcomed Miss Morriss
to the Halls of University Lore as a member
of Arts '27. Her chief interests are English
and History, with spare time devoted to the
Fundamentalist Society. Her cheerful disposition and the determination to succeed which
have characterized her Academic career have
won for her the admiration of her classmates,
all of whom wish her success and happiness.
In our midst we have a "Yankee" from
far Cathay. George is a much travelled
wanderer, wishing only to settle down long
enough to absorb, some of the knowledge given
in this seat of learning. However, he has great
aspirations toward a Ph.D. Usually starting to
study about a week before the exams., he
wonders why the text books seem so new and
strange. One often finds him spending his
spare time fumigating the common rooms.
George's ambition is to live a life of ease and
Oriental luxury after he has patented a system
of making both ends of a student's income meet.

gossiping. In spite of this fact, first classes
come his way quite often. Our Don Juan, his
proud boast is, that he has never been turned
down asking a girl to a dance. The reason is
obvious—he never asks the same one twice.
Jo.'s wonderful blonde hair gives her the
honor of being the "shining light" of '27.
At present she indulges in French, Economics
and History and recently has acquired an
impressive pair of horn-rimmed glasses, no
doubt to give her the air of dignity necessary
to her future calling. But can you imagine
our Jo., capped and gowned, dispensing justice
to quaking delinquents. Tbat carefully assumed
air of dignity would doubtless suffer when,

Otherwise Allie. Sometimes seen around the

all been concentrated on one song. All men
have their weaknesses—his is red hair. Otherwise, Allie is a perfectly normal lad, despite
his mustache, and has always been active in

Answers to Trixie or Bea and comes when
she is ready. She knows how to show speed
though when it comes to catching a Sasamat
car or "rushing" to the Orpheum. Wherever
she is, Trixie becomes the life of the party,
swapping stories, cracking jokes, or performing
take-offs. Such is her "esprit" that she sees
the point before it arrives. All told, Trixie
ought to reach a ripe old age since she gets
such a laugh out of life.
Casting aside a career in pill-rolling after
passing first in minor pharmacy exams., he
entered Varsity. Four years later we find him
a first-class honors student in Biology, his
first step towards his Ph.D. His career as an
athlete has been startling. First year, intermediate basketball; second year, second in
half-mile and mile at Western Intercollegiate
Track Meet, and broke Varsity record for the
mile; third year, broke record for 440 yards;
fourth year, won Western Intercollegiate half-
mile. He has been President of the Sophomore
year and President of the Track Club.

Teaching school for a few years to win one's
way back to college is not the easiest thing in
the world; but it is worth it to get back among
all the pretty co-eds; but that is just to look
at, for I have other interests. Well, I do go
to church with her; but I do not neglect my
studies like some of these other undergraduates
do. My only worry is my Ford. The poor thing
is standing up well despite its hard usage.

shows us that the qualities of a conscientious

happy disposition, her exuberance of spirit
cannot be suppressed even by the reproving
eye of the sternest profpssor.

It is said an Irishman does not know what

however, knows exactly what he wants, lays
his plans, and like the Irishman, fights till

will go to St. Andrew's for Gaelic or golf;
but "lassie ye maun learn to empty your

speeches in the common room than he ever
attended lectures, played football, and was
the most intrepid member of the Outdoors

Letters Club, an English Honors student, and,
of course, the egregious Editor-in-Chief.

"Hec." is an all-round college man. Besides
playing football and basketball in his second
and third years, he belonged to the Players'
Club and debated. As President of Arts '27
this year, "Hec." has completed three years
of service on his class executive. In spite of
activities which are many and diverse he has
the uncanny ability, especially in Economics,
of pulling down first class marks. No, ma

"blanches" at nothing.
Jean's looks are most deceiving. She is
really not a heavy student at all, despite the
scholarships she has chalked up against her
at Victoria. She is an alarming opponent in
athletics, quick as a flash both on the basketball floor and the race track. She has played
on the Senior B during her two years at
Varsity and is a good sport in victory or defeat.
She is President of the Basketball Club and
an enthusiastic and convincing advocate of
Varsity spirit.
"Ernie" is the real chemist of '27. All envy
him his powers of concentration that enable
him to try night after night for "D.X." and
yet come around every day up to date in

result of a determination to get to the bottom
of everything. His cheerful willingness to help
others makes him a general favorite in all
his courses.

whirl of S.C.M., Historical Society, La Canadienne, and International Club meetings, plus
'Musical Society practices and hurried climbs
to the cabin of the Outdoors Club. Not satisfied
with belonging to all these organizations,
Clare originated "The Flat Earth Society."
She has future aspirations of civilizing the
wild natives of the Queen Charlotte Islands,
which she will do, for whatever Clare attempts
she accomplishes.
Came from Nelson, B.C., to enter Arts '27
in its second year. Since then he has spent
seven months every year enjoying life in
Vancouver and wondering when he'd get a
letter from home. He is possessed of a slogan,
"Why work," and by his record has substantiated the wisdom of these words. In time,
he plans to attend Osgoode Hall, so we will
expect to see him at a future date "Judge on
the Bench."

Pink cheeks and curly hair lend an air
of ingenuousness wholly deceptive. She manages to obtain very decent marks with a
very indecent amount of work. Her first and
last excuse: "I haven't time!" Who takes up
all this time, Myrtle? A plaintive cry is heard
from Myrtle at 9.10 a.m. on the bus, "Girls,
do I dare go in?" Her favorite indoor sports
are dancing and History Essays.
Hey, folks, meet our Archie. This curly-
headed, bright-eyed young man is not as
innocent as one might suppose. For instance,
he sets a bad example to those about him by
his intense love of study, especially in the
field of History, French and Sociology. To
add to this obvious failing, he takes uncalled-for
amusement out of such pastimes as dancing,
hiking, tennis and yachting (in the engine-
room of a tugboat). Otherwise, he's not so bad.
The palmist told Anne that she was a born
student, but omitted to say what she studied.
It may be History, or history students, or
history profs.; but whichever it is she enjoys
it enormously, like everything else she does.
In fact, she's a terror for her size and what's
more, she manages to make a surprising number
of firsts, seeing she never misses a dance or
a meeting of the Historical Society, a climb
with the Outdoors Club or any mischief on
foot. Favorite advice: "Don't you believe it!"
Jimmie first came here with the class of
Arts '23; but feeling the call of the wilds
decided to take up mining engineering. Graduating with the class of Sc. '24, he followed
his chosen calling for a while with the Allenby
Copper Co., and then did his bit towards the
building of the new Cariboo Highway. After
his he-man experiences, Jimmie decided that .
the Law was his proper calling and is now on
his way to being one of our leading legal
luminaries. While a Science man, Jimmie was
one of Varsity's fast stepping hockey team,
but this year he has been too busy to take
part in athletic activities. Good luck, Jimmie.
"What is this life, if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare."
Margaret may appear to be a stately,
dignified Senior; but beware those keen,
twinkling eyes! They don't miss many of our
little foibles, which seem fair game for her wit.
Week-ends and summer holidays find Margaret
in Ladner, where she plays tennis all day long.
While at Varsity she endures not quite seven-
eighths of her lectures and thoroughly enjoys
at least three-quarters of the current theatrical

We have more to say about Beattie than
that he has "a pleasant smile and a wide
circle of friends." First of all, there is no doubt
that he has remarkably good taste. You see,
his English course extends over next year, but
he has been a staunch '27 member. Plus good
taste he is President of "Der Deutsche Verein,"
Lit. Rep. of the class, Students' Council
reporter, and relay runner. So you see that
he is a real all-round man, and, in this connection, no one will forget how inspiring he
was as an Apache dancer during Alumni
Should a frown overshadow her face, Isabelle
is probably translating the inevitable
"Deutsche." At other times she may be found
in English and History lectures or persuading
her partner to remain in Botany I. Lab.
Besides being a devotee of badminton, Isabelle
particpates in inter-class swimming and track
and as Deputy Treasurer has a restraining
influence on the Senior Treasury. As librarian,
too, Isabelle makes a clever assistant at the
familiar "loan desk." Although continually
getting into difficulties and confusing her
engagements she generally "bobs" up in the end.
A popular, likeable and versatile Senior who
plans to enter Education '28, Don is but
eighteen and has a very bright future. He is
a noted authority on History and French (as
studies from "La Vie Parisienne"). A member
of the Track Club, Don stars on our relay
and tug-o'-war teams, and has acquired further
laurels playing golf and poker. His favorite
expression is, "Here's to your uncle in Sweden."
Margaret is well known to a great many—
Aggies included. It is refreshing to meet one
with her originality, her frank out-spoken
manner and her indifference towards public
opinion. And to these we must add an unbounded sense of humor and a genuine friendliness. She is one of those lucky girls with a
natural marcel which the rain only improves.
No wonder she never wears ahat! No, no one
could reproduce that signature.
Another member of the Mac & Mac Corporation, this 18-year-old youngster has had a
varied career since entering our lofty halls.
Tinkering with his radio, racing against time
to nine o'clocks, falling asleep in the stacks,
English, History, La Causerie and French
Honors, leave Lome little time for diversion.
But, then, "wait till summer comes again."
It is rumored that Lome has reasons for
preferring the climate of Burnaby.

Newby, of Sardis, who was formerly a
pedagogue, is now majoring in history and
minoring in English. Cec. is greatly interested
in social problems; he is an admirer of H. G.
Wells, and a firm believer in the social interpretation of history. A follower of every branch
of sport, "Strongman" Newby is himself a
versatile athlete. He has played senior B
basketball for two years; was fullback for the
American football squad in his third year, and
played senior Canadian rugby this year.
In inter-class sports he has taken part in tug-
of-war,  track and baseball
Her air, her manners, all who saw admired
Courteous  though  coy,  and gentle though
The joy of youth and health her eye displayed,
And ease of heart her every look conveyed.
Mildred comes from Manitoba, but claims
she has transferred her allegiance wholeheartedly to British Columbia. We believe her,
for she is a lover of nature—one of those dear,
delightful persons who don't "go through the
fields in gloves." French honors bear witness
to the fact that Mildred does take life seriously
at times.
Oh, boys and girls, in its Sophomore year,
Arts '26 received an addition in the shape of
a tall, bespectacled botanist. Owing to his
illness, Arts '27 later received a similar acquisition, only more bespectacled, and more
botanical than ever. Aside from Botanical
research, Dick spends his spare time in training
young salmon, class debates and biological
discussion. Perhaps it is these activities which
so frequently make him late for lectures.
"A rosy blonde clothed in a college gown."
That is our carefree Senior whose chief interest
in English, History and French, however, did
not prevent her from having all her afternoons
off for the past two years. As a runner in the
inter-class sports, Edna has managed to make
a few points for her year. Her abilities are
many, from reading teacups to taking us for
hair-raising rides in "Henry." As her memory
for dates is rather vague, we suggest that she
takes for a motto: "Lest I forget."
"Ling.," ag he is familiarly called, is one
of the quiet, steady members of the class who
takes the world as it comes. Besides being an
ardent member of the Chemistry Society, he
also indulges in higher mathematics, class
parties and hikes on the North Shore. Another
year will see him in his chosen profession of

Avis is the busiest person on the campus.
As President of the Players' Club and Vice-
President of the L.S.D., she is continually
engaged in smoothing Freddy's ruffled feathers
or sending rebellious hirelings scurrying here
and there on more or less vital messages.
She is full of wit and repartee and for sweetly
handling difficult situations has earned the
name of "tactful little Avis." Journalistic
tendencies help to account for numerous
English courses and membership in the Letters
Club. For her parts in three spring plays
she is known up and down the province.
"A third of the famous mathematical
triangle," Gordon entered the University in
his second year, having completed his Senior
Matriculation in his native city, Armstrong.
He has distinguished himself as a first-class
honors man and has brought to simplicity the
intricacies of "Diophantive Analysis." Being
a clever pianist, he has become a valued
member of the executive of the Studio Club.
In the summer months Gordon competes in,
and wins, the butter-wrapping championship
of the Okanagan.
Marion took her first year with '24, and came
to us as a Junior. She is one of the quiet
members of our class; but there is a charm
about her which has won many friends in the
last two years. She has brown hair, brown eyes
and a happy smile. Last year she played
basketball and ran in the relay for '27. Next
year she will be teaching. We wish her success.
Though quiet and unassuming in his first
two years, Gaundray distinguished himself by
playing on the English rugby team. In his
second year he was Treasurer of his class.
Now, Gaundry deserves much credit for his
work in the curators' department. He was
responsible for the Constitution of this department. As President of the Arts Men's Undergrad. this year Gaundry has reached the
peak of his college career. In spite of that
irresistible dimple on his chin Gaundry has
never been noticed at tea with one of the
fairer sex.
Who would recognize in this sedate Senior
in gown and hood the frivolous Freshette that
joined our class in our first year? Yet, in reality,
she is the same Helen, and even four years of
college worries have failed to quell her merry
laugh. A member of "La Canadienne," she
devotes much of her time to the study of that
mighty language, French. We wonder why
she goes to so many movies and why she
prefers driving in a Nash.
"When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure 'tis like a morn in spring."
Such eyes has Ida. As for that Irish smile,
beware, for it means that there is some joke
lurking behind it. During the years passed at
Varsity she has taken such serious subjects
as Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. She
delights in hiking, swimming and six o'clock
labs. Her pet aversions are spats and "that
ferry." Full of fun, a cheerful worker and a
loyal  friend—that's  Ida.
Russ. is an active member of Arts '27.
As President of the Baskbetball Club, he has
proved himself capable of efficient administration. Moreover, Russ. is a keen follower of the
game. He has played basketball since he came
to college and this year has shown himself a
flashy forward on the Senior "A" team. In
rounding out his college career, Russell has
not neglected his social obligations. He can
always be found at any Varsity function. Some
time in the future he intends to instruct the
youthful mind in Mathematics and to that
end he has bent his academic endeavours.
"Do you wanna ride? Hop in".
Dorothy enjoys her daily drive from West
Vancouver, and saves a lecture for many a
tardy classmate. She is a member of "La
Causerie," shows a natural ability for English
and takes a keen interest in all college activities.
A quaint dignity all her own—that's Dorothy.
Added to this, a thoughtful manner and a
charm and graciousness that have won her
many friends.
"Rip.," as he is best known, has, ever since
his entrance in Varsity, taken a keen interest
in all University affairs. An ardent devotee
of tennis, "Rip." has also shown his prowess
on the baseball diamond when representing
• 27 for the Governor's Cup. Despite his youth,
Horace has excelled himself in the expounding
of complex theories of Philosophy and Economics. Always a conscientious student, Horace
leaves Varsity one of the youngest grads. of '27.
One of the few girls in the class who has
shown her good sense in retaining her crowning
glory. Her soft, brown eyes reveal the kindliness of her disposition which has won for
her a large circle of friends both in the classroom and in the S.C.M. Her ability to collect
firsts in English is the envy of many. After
teaching for a few years she intends to go to
London University, where we are sure she
will win further laurels.

Marie is one of the "planets of Arts '27
stardom." Among her several executive positions she has most efficiently filled the office
of class Secretary. With all her other activities
Marie has not allowed her scholastic interest
to wane and has proved herself a particularly
keen student of languages. Marie is a girl
of today, full of enthusiasm and bubbling over
with  mirth,  wit and originality.
"Whene'er she met a stranger,
She left a friend."
George belongs to the select circle of Mathematics honor students. He is one of the trio
which forms, and in private, no doubt, aspires
to become the apex of the famous Math,
triangle. His acknowledged prominence in
the world of numbers is made evident by the
fact that he is Vice-President of the Mathematics Club, before which he has elucidated
the mysteries of "Non-Euclidian Geometry."
It is reported that George usually takes refuge
from the gaiety of Vancouver summers in
some  little  red  school house  on  the  prairie.
To those who don't know her, Elsie may
appear shy; but beneath this air of seeming
quietness there is a store of wit and humor
that makes her very popular among her friends.
Arriving late for lectures does not prevent
her from making consistently high marks in
her exams., and her ability as a short story
writer has admitted her to the sacred precincts
of English 6. Pet expression: "No; is that
right?" Pet occupation: Pumping tires. Pet
abomination: Hurrying through her lunch.
During his four years at college, Ian has
made an excellent record for himself. Two
years ago he walked off with the Men's Singles
Tennis Championship. In badminton he has
been a star player, being a member of the
first team and of the team chosen to journey
to Kelowna. He has proved his executive
ability by being a most able President of the .
Tennis Club and Treasurer of the Badminton
Club for two years. At the same time he has
never failed to make consistently good marks,
and his cheery smile and remarkable good
humor have won him a host of friends.
She came from the convent, a very good school,
But no one would know it today;
She's forgotten what all the sweet nuns taught
her there,
And goes in for fun fast and gay.
She's called "youth incarnate," or so we are told
Though just what it means we don't know;
But she's full of the devil, gets marvellous
All precepts are smashed at a blow.
Page Thirty-two THE     UNIVERSITY     OF     BRITISH     COLUMBIA
Who so coy as Lillian? In spite of her fondness
for afternoon teas and aversion for 9 and 11
lectures, she takes a keen interest in Ec.
Lately, the Biological Discussion Club appears
to demand her serious attention, and we
"outsiders" are just a little suspicious. Her
chief desire is to be "tough;" but what can
one do with a New England conscience such
as hers?
A promising young man, fated to unravel
the riddle of the universe. Formerly a member
of Arts '26, on whose executive he served with
distinction, he came to our fold, fresh and
vivacious after a year's absence in "the great
open spaces," since when he has buried himself
alive in an Honors Chemistry course. Besides
his outstanding abilities as a student, Pierce
has the high honor of being the youngest
rifleman to ever win a place on the Bisley Team.
As globe-trotter, rifleman, student and real
estate promoter, Pierce has demonstrated his
fine ability.
Bright and vivacious, cheery and smiling,
we welcomed you back to Varsity in your
final year. We ' know you have the weeks
counted one by one until graduation. Resolutions can do no harm, so stick to your "From
now on I'm going to study, by gosh!" Marion
used to wield the pedagogical rod and hopes
soon to be back at work. Brown eyes, a sense
of humor and an irresistable smile will aid her
along the road to success.
For the most part a quiet individual with
very definite ideas which sometimes bubble
over. He is seldom seen outside the sacred
precincts of his lab., where delicate operations
are performed on butterflies, beetles, etc,
John spent last summer pursuing the elusive
ear wig. In spite of all this he is quite human,
addicted to furious driving in a very distinctive
car and given to telling funny stories. Perhaps
his hardened look is due to the fact that he
lives near Oakalla jail.
Why didn't you cheer up when the photographer told you to—we hardly recognize you,
Kay. A most loyal supporter of Varsity in
general and Arts '27 in particular, Kay has
taken part in all sides of college life, executive,
athletic and social. In her first year she was
on the senior B basketball team, and she has
suffered many an ache and pain training for
the inter-class relay. In her Junior year she
was on the class executive and Vice-President
of the Women's Undergraduate Society in
her Senior year. A social queen fit for a king.
P.S.—Not commonly known as "Katie."

In spite of Mary's lack of ardor for study,
we can still attribute to her a first-class record
in numerous branches of our comprehensive
University life—in the position of Secretary
to the Lit. and Scientific, which she filled most
satisfactorily and efficiently—in talking, both
in and out of lectures, which she does most
fast and furiously, and, we may add, extremely
efficaciously—in the swimming contests, where
she figures occasionally and then snappily, and,
last, but not least, at dances, where she scintillates,  beautifully and happily.
When Francis is a famous man and his
biography is written, his career at college will
be called distinguished—not because that is
the thing to say, but because it is true. Honors
in Philosophy have kept him busy, but his
first classes must be some compensation, to
say nothing of the scholarships he has collected
from time to time. For recreation Francis has
turned to the Chief Beportership of the
"Ubyssey" and an exposition of the virtues
and vices of Compton McKenzie for the
Letters Club.
"Laugh and the world laughs with you;
Smile and Dorothy smiles too."
Dorothy is always smiling, even when as
Athletic Rep. of '27 she is trying to get the
lady members out to practice. She herself
has taken part in the relay for four years.
Dorothy has been twice Secretary for the
Grass Hockey Club and is a most amiable
antagonist on the field while on the tennis
courts. It's no wonder they chose her Vice-
Jack, besides being fair haired and handsome,
is of an inventive turn of mind, having constructed a one-legged bridge table on the
campus in his Sophomore year. That was when
he was surveying the University site, and
lived in a tent. He still spends, a good deal of
time surveying the site. In his Junior year
Jack was on the executive of the Literary and
Scientific Department as Debates Manager
and was largely instrumental in the formation
of the Western Intercollegiate Debating
League. Jack is now the very energetic President
of the Tennis Club.
In vain we fondly strive to trace
The soul's reflection in the face;
We ne'er can reach the inward man,
Nor woman, from without.
In the class-room Violet is quiet and studious,
and if our acquaintance with her ended there
we sh uld never quite know Violet, with her
quick smile, sympathetic understanding, idealism and sincereity, combined with a refreshing
spice of merriment. Keenly interested in
lite ature and music.
Page Thirty-four THE     UNIVERSITY     OF    BRITISH     COLUMBIA
Maxine's cheerful smile and happy wit are
too well known to need comment. Thoroughly
modern in other respects, she shows her interest
in the past through her studies. The Historical
Society, seminar and lectures in History claim
most of the time she gives to University life.
Though she seems carefree, her records reveal
her worth as a student. She intends to enter
Social Science. We are sure that in that field
she will prove as capable as on the campus.
Ralph is interested in all affairs forensic,
being one of the Famous Three who defeated
the Imperial Debaters in '26. His extensive
and startling vocabulary is a fit instrument
for a mind everlastingly bent on controversy.
Invaluable to the S.C.M. for his helpful ideas
and practical work, a confirmed prize winner
in student honors in Philosophy, a Theologian
of radical notions and confirmed idealism.
Pet phrase: "I disagree."
"Five minutes—zounds! I have been
minutes too late all my lifetime."
Donalda, however, in spite of this record,
remains carefree and unconcerned. She ranks
high in energy, popularity and looks. Beware
of her frankness—but then, you know, she
doesn't mean all she says. Although engrossed (?) with her Economic courses, Donalda
takes time to display her skill in tennis and
badminton. She has never failed yet to recruit
for  the   Victoria  invasion.
Lyle, a native son of New Westminster,
has proved to be, during his four years at
Varsity, a systematic and conscientious worker.
A keen sense of humor, coupled with a willingness to share knowledge has endeared him to
fellow students. His specialty is first class
honors in Chemistry and last year he obtained
one of the much sought University Scholarships. Among other things, Lyle found time
during his third year to assist on the business
staff of the "Ubyssey" and this session he
has acted as Secretary for the Chemistry
"Not too little nor too much."
Jean came here in her first year from Manitoba. Severe though the climate is in that
province, there is no severity in her. She has
a pronounced liking for languages and has
dabbled in courses in Latin, French and
German. She belongs to the German Club,
but whether she is Jean Stewart (1) or (2)
is unknown to us. Jean intends to be a librarian,
but so carefully does she conceal her likes
that we have not noticed her particular fondness for that building here.

Doug, came to us in his Sophomore year
from Pictou Academy, Nova Scotia, although
his original home was Merritt. Despite a lurid
past he has managed to display a marked
ability in Economics and Bacteriology, his
ultimate intention being to grace (?) the
medical profession. Ice hockey, golf, track,
and especially tennis occupy his time outdoors;
but it is in the realm of indoor sport that Doug,
really excells, his exploits on the polished
hardwood    being    far-famed.
A little shyness and a lot of friendliness
combine with frankness and sincerity to make
Bella an ever welcome companion. She has
convictions which she usually retains, and a
sense of duty which she sets aside on Mondays
and Fridays. She cultivates her linguistic
gifts in "La Canadienne" and "Der Deutche
Verein," works off her superfluous energy in

Why should men make haste to die?"
"Bob" came to U.B.C. last year from
Victoria College, and has since become known
for his favorite little saying, "Well, I guess
I'd better start to work." However, "Bob"
has done good work as Vice-President of the
Rowing Club, and a member of the "eight."
Incidentally, he is a member of the Letters
Club, and, during his two years here, has
found time to take an active part in the
Classic*  Club.
Margaretta, our dramatist and historian,
threw off her scholastic dignity last summer
for overalls at West Holme. Listen for "absolutely gorgeous" or "simply ghastly" then you
have Margaretta. If you have any trouble go
to Margaretta for consolation and advice; if
you wish the day's news go to Margaretta for
enlightenment. Her energy and attentions are
directed to the S.C.M. and they, realizing her
worth and ability, appointed her delegate to
the conference held this Christmas in Quebec.

Harold is a wizard in Mathematics and is
possessed of an insatiable aptitude for solving
his fellow students' problems. He is President
of the Mathematics Club and specializes in
"firsts" and scholarships. During his University
career Harold has been keenly interested in
student activities, especially those pertaining
to sport. In soccer and inter-class sports he
has proved himself a decided asset to his class.

The "Ubyssey" says, "Blurbs shouldn't
tell, if their victims divert themselves with
ukuleles, odd corners of the campus and
taking Freshettes to tea." It's nobody's
business if a man likes losing on races, and
it's not odd if he likes co-eds. Suffice it to say
that Jack is a deep student of Economics,
Nash cars, Philosophy, women, soccer and
social life. He's a darned good sport, liked by
all who know him, and may his shadow never
grow less!
Here's Marg., a busy little person, always
ready to help, and most enthusiastic—about
some things. Her excellent swimming has won
her a place on the team for three years. As a
student, Marg. excels in Geology and she
astounds us by being a member of the Geology
Club. For one so small, she has many worries,
the greatest of which is German, and the least,
"getting into the front row of the gods. "Well,
I really must start, next week, to work."
Charlie's main academic attractions are
History and English. The fact that he is
a diligent student, however, does not prevent
him from playing rugby of all kinds; but as
a member of this year's intermediate team he
prefers the English game. You seldom see
Charlie unaccompanied by a genial smile,
which has made him a familiar figure in
Varsity circles.
Blanche needs no introduction; but for the
benefit of those who don't know her, the
description is as follows: Blue eyes, brown hair,
rosy cheeks, a bright smile and sweet personality. One of her favorite pastimes is talking
baby talk to beguile sturdy farmers. She is
an adherent of the principle that "the only
way to have a friend is to be one." Blanche
is the diverting type of person, who adds
spice to life.
Sheridan,  boding  nothing sin'ster,
Came to us from New Westminster;
Spent four years within our midst,
Seeking the grain from out the grist.
Found he not the slightest  myst'ry
In all his work on French and Hist'ry.
Feared he not the woman's wyle,
Naught could dim his carefree smile;
Nothing  mar his  dauntless  gait;
Sometimes absent, never late.
As nice a chap as you could see,
'Till he was troubled with "T— B ."
And spent a great deal of his time
With someone out at twenty-nine.
'Tis rumored he'll  take education—
God bless the coming generation.
We hope his time with twenty-seven
Has not bedimmed his hope of Heaven.

Independent, frank and kind, with abundant
good nature—that's Beatrice. In English and
History, the courses which she has selected
for special study, she has developed a distinct
talent. Goal? Columbia University. Why?
I'ecause of her vital interest in girls and their
activities. In her serious moments Bea. indulges
in S.C.M. discussion groups, and, for recreation, she attends Gym. Pet pastime: Tea with
Jean. Pet aversion: Crowds. She is a friend
lo all    to those who know her best, a real pal.
In spite of several protracted interests off
the campus, Max has played an important
part in the activities of his class and Alma
Mater. Perhaps his six feet four inches of
height had something to do with his election
as Class Marshal in his second year. He joined
the Lit. and Scientific as a Junior, filling the
office of Treasurer, and in his fourth year was
elected President of that department. Max is
majoring in English and Philosophy, and a
seat on Council does not prevent him from
writing short stories and dabbling in journalism.
Muriel considers herself a cynic, but how
then does she account for a humorous quirk
at the corners of her mouth? Coming to U.B.C.
from South Africa as a Sophomore, she has
since then pursued a course in History Honors
with vigour and determination, while her
interest in the Historical Society, of which
she is Vice-President, is further evidence of
her particular flair. Her summers are spent
in Princeton studying Sociology first-hand.
Always in a hurry; but never too busy to
argue, in which pastime a cosmopolitan outlook and a practical mind find expression in
occasional   wit   and   keen   retort.
Moore joined our class in the Junior year.
He began with Arts '25, but withdrew for two
years to devote his time to newspaper work,
in which he is still engaged. An ardent student
of Economics and History, and an extensive
reader, he loves to get to the bottom of all
social problems. Thoroughly versed in Chinese
affairs, Moore may often be founf explaining
the situation in the Far East to a group of
interested students. We are indebted to him
for a broader and truer understanding of
"Her charm is in her being just herself."
Maude entered our class in her third year
from the University of Alberta. In spite of
such a handicap, she has made a great many
loyal friends at Varsity, and has shown deep
interest in all the University activities. Maude
ranks among the best pianists in the University,
holding the degree of A.T.C.M. Needless to
say, she is a decided acquisition to the Studio
Club. The cheery smile and sense of humor
that Maude possesses have made her a favorite
with   her   many   acquaintances   and   friends.

Someone once described Milla to a distinguished visitor as "the most interesting
girl in the University—a Russian, who learned
to speak English in a French convent in China."
Milla is at home anywhere. Ever since her
Freshman year in Fairview she has made the
college brighter with her talents. The Eastern
princess in "Figureheads" was as different from
the "Dumb Wife" as that lady is from the
"Spanish Dancer," yet Milla interpreted all
equally well. She has danced for us too, and
played and sung, and always we have felt a
thrill of delight while she performed and have
been sorry when she stopped. When Milla
was not actually performing herself, she was
usually "a person unseen, but felt." Her last
triumph is a scholarship in Sociology at Smith
College, Massachusetts.
Favorite meal: Tea.
Favorite course: Chem. 3.

Other things you should know about Betty:
She has extraordinary luck in class draws.
She is a member of the Bacteriology Discussion

of beans. This, added to other desirable
qualities, doubtless help her greatly in her work
as Vice-President of the Outdoors Club.

everyone learns to eat with chopsticks.
Setting: Foggy Point Grey; Wastes.
Auditorium minus seats, Library minus tables, locker rooms minus
lockers, common room minus everything.
Twenty'seven now no longer Sophomores; but as Juniors live up to
the record they have set in the previous acts and take a leading place in
general activities. Miss Dorothy Brown, a member of the year, is Secretary
of the Students' Council. Six of the members from the major executive
of the Publications Board also belong to '27, namely, Morrison, Warden,
Calvert, Stevens, Leigh and Allen. Once more two of its members are
starring in the spring play in the persons of Miss Grace Hope and Miss
Avis Pumphrey. This year there are two representatives on the Inter'
national Debating Team, "Bert'" Bailey and Ralph Stedman, one of the
Imperial Debaters. Such a widely varied programme of activity shows
that twenty'seven is carrying on and for the third time the Governor's
Cup bears a shield engraved "Arts '27."
Setting: Sunny Point Grey. A sign in the foreground: "Keep off
the grass."
This year the "sedate" Seniors are looking to their executive to plan
a "Graduation Week" which will excel all others. This executive comprises:
President, Hector Munro; Vice-President, Margaret Keillor; Secretary,
Marie Riddell; Treasurer, Bert Bailey; Deputy Treasurer; Isabelle
McTavish; Women's Literary Rep., Cora Harding; Men's Literary Rep.,
Beattie McLean; Women's Athletic Rep., Dorothy Russell; Men's
Athletic Rep., Charles Mottley. It seems that social activity predominates
in this act, with two class parties to be arranged for. The climax of these
is to be in the form of a combined Senior Ball for Arts and Agriculture.
Three members of the Student Council, Miss Dorothy Brown, President
Women's Undergraduate Society; Miss Jean Gilley, President of Women's
Athletics; and Max Wright, President of the Literary and Scientific
are class members. This year the Editor'in'Chief of the Ubyssey, Edmund
Morrison, belongs to '27. In the spring play this year the class is represented
by Miss Milla Alihan and "Bill" Buckingham. For a second time Bert
Bailey is in the intercollegiate debates.
The greatest triumph of the year was the Arts '20 Relay, in which
Arts '27 won for a fourth and last time the Governor's Cup, emblem of
all'round proficiency in athletics. It is to be hoped that Arts '27 will
continue to live up to the reputation and standard it has set for itself in
the previous four acts in the unwritten fifth and final act which commences
after congregation.

Arts 78
'"PHE good ship "TwentyEight" with its merry crew has now completed
■*■ the third year of its voyage from the verdant shores of Froshdom
to the far'distant harbor of Graduation. This year's travels have been
eventful for the crew, both as a whole and as individuals.
The sailors can well say that they belong to the ruling class, if not
to the idle class. On the whole, Arts '28 has done more to fill the ranks
of the executives than any other year. Four members are on the Students'
Council: Miss K. Baird, the Secretary; Harold McWilliams, the Treasurer;
Les. Brown, the Junior Member; and Tanny Butler, President of the
Men's Athletics.
In the Literary and Scientific Department, the class is represented
by William Taylor and Vernon Hill, Alice Weaver and F. C. Pilkington
not being able to take their seats on that body on account of noonday
Arts '28 is represented on the Men's Athletics by Tanny Butler,
President, and J. Swanson, Treasurer, and on the Women's Athletics
by Audrey Robinson. In the Players' Club executive the class has Phill.
Elliott and Gwen Musgrave. The Men's Literary Society has F. C. Pilk'
ington as President, and Vernon Hill as Vice'President, while the Women's
Lit. is led by Alice Weaver.
The ubiquitous Publications Board has George Davidson and Jean
Tolmie as associate editors, Frank Pilkington as feature editor and Ralph
James and Bev. Patrick as business assistants. Jean Tolmie is also editor
of this Annual.
To learn the achievements of members of Arts '28 in forensic,
dramatic, athletic and other spheres it is only necessary to turn over the
pages of this Annual. The year was not yet over when this eulogy was
penned, so much of the account is incomplete. Arts '28, however, has
already defeated Arts '30 in the men's inter'class debates, and has an
excellent chance to keep the shield. In the Arts '20 relay the class came
fifth, after a game fight. The interclass track meet remains in the future
and no prophecy can be made of Arts '28's achievements.
As usual, the big events of the year for the good ship "Twenty
Eight" were in the social world. Early in the year, the executive hit upon
the absolutely new idea of holding a "The" dansant at the Winter
The biggest feature of the year's program was the famous Buccaneer
Ball of February 2nd, when the crew indulged in wild piratical capers
in full regalia.
The officers in charge of the good ship "Twenty'Eight" are: Honorary
President, Dr. F. Soward; President, Phil. Elliott; Vice'President, Mary
Cole; Secretary, Audrey Robinson; Treasurer, George Davidson; Class
Reporter, Francis Pilkington; Women's Athletics, Doris Woods;Women's
Lit. Rep., Annie Taylor; Men's Lit. Rep., Doug. Telford; Men's Athletic
Rep., John Currie.
Arts 79
A S a Sophomore class, Arts '29 has continued to be ranked as one of
■**- the peppiest classes in the University. We have upheld the reputation
established in our Freshman year as a keen participant in all college
events. At the time of writing, the class is in the midst of its activities;
but the achievements so far are sufficient to show that the '29 spirit
is a marked characteristic of every member of the class.
The executive has been a great asset to the class. It has shown
much energy and earnest application, creditably managing the affairs
and guarding the interests of the class throughout the year. The President
was never without the enthusiastic co'operation, not only of the rest
of the executive, but also of every member of the class. The members
of the executive were: Norma Robarts, Thelma Colledge, Geraldine
Whitaker, Jean Andrews, Ross Tolmie, Gordon Baker, Harold Mahon,
Denis Murphy and Vernard Stewart. But the list is not complete without
the name of our Honorary President, Professor Wood. Mr. Wood, by
his genuine interest in the class and by his able assistance in its under'
takings, has won the popular title of "Daddy of '29."
In every branch of athletics are to be found stars from Arts '29.
We are equally well represented in rugby, rowing, swimming, tennis,
soccer, badminton, track and basketball. At the swimming meet, Arts '29
led by a large margin on the total score, largely due to the superiority
of the girls in almost every event. We also carried off the premier honors
at the fall tennis meet. Gordy Shields won the men's singles, carried off
the men's doubles with Harry Seed, and won the mixed doubles with Jean
Carlaw. A further triumph was won in the interclass rugby playoffs.
By defeating the crack Freshman team we surprised everybody, including
the Freshmen. As for the relay, our boys showed that, though we had
lost half the champion team of last year, yet we could still give the Seniors
a close run for first place.
Many of the bright stars in University literary circles are twenty
niners. We have only to mention such brilliant debaters as Paul and
Denis Murphy, Laing and Rowland.
All our class functions were highly successful. In the fall term we
had a tea'dance, at which we entertained the rugby boys. Just ask them
what kind of a time they had! This was far outshone by the class party
held, as was befitting, on the 29th of January. The guests of the evening
were the Maori rugby players, and they enjoyed themselves no less
than did the girls who were lucky enough to get a dance with them.
Other functions, such as that free tea for victorious Freshmen, or the
"Get Acquainted Tea" for the new members were held; but space does
not permit of their description.
It is not the outward show and self-advertising of a class
that makes towards its success, as it is the internal unity and enthusiasm.
And so, as '29 takes the place of the Juniors, its already established
tradition as another one of those "odd years" augurs well for its future.
Arts 30
WE, of Arts '30, having survived three initiations, the sand'bag rush,
that annual jam, the Frosh reception, and the class party, feel in
a position to insert a humble epistle in the Annual.
We congratulate ourselves on being the first Freshman class to
be distinguished by placards bearing our names in three'inch high letters,
also on being the first Freshmen to be entertained at tea by the Sophs.
Touching our activities, the large part is yet to come; but so far Arts '30
has done creditably in athletics, debating, Players' Club, student activities
and scholastic attainments.
Arts '30 has many promising athletes, who have gained us fame in
swimming, track, basketball and rugby. However, we fondly hope, when
the interclass meets take place, to distinguish ourselves in all branches.
The powers of our numerous debaters have not been tested to any great
extent; but we are to be the first class to send teams against the city
high schools. There will be one, or possibly two, members of our class
on the intercollegiate debating teams and we are assured by Jimmy
O'Hagan, the leading debater of our year, that Arts '30 will not disgrace
itself. When the smoke from the annual Players' Club battle had cleared
away, it was found that many Freshmen and 'Ettes had been admitted
to many much'sought'after places. Also, many of the Christmas caste
were of our year, and the spring play's leading lady is a Freshette, Dorothy
Owing to the efforts of the Freshettes, the Girls' Rooters' Clubs
"The Tam'O'Shanter" has been formed and a first'year lady is President.
The executive of the class, headed by Fred Grimmett, President,
have done all possible to make the year a success and have successfully
started Arts '30 on its college career. The students of Arts '30 have
turned out in a body to many student affairs and we feel that we have
created a tradition in class spirit for coming years, and we look forward
to greater achievements in our course through University.
We wish to tender our hearty thanks to Dr. Keenleyside, our
Honorary President, who has given us much of his time, and, through
attending all our class functions and getting to know us all, has proved
himself to be such a competent Honorary President that we all feel certain
no class has ever had, or will ever have, such an efficient head.

Science 77
AFTER having been dumped in tubs of water at the initiation of
Arts '26, we spent a year under the cultural and social influence
of that class. However, we really started life as Science men when we
donned overalls and attacked small pieces of red hot iron at the old site
of the'University in Fairview. Since then we have become divided into
groups interested in the different fields of engineering.
This year we complete the five years of our training. We no longer
will return fresh from the pursuits of the summer to gather in the common
rooms and all talk at once of our experiences. The memory of the University
of British Columbia, and the influence it has had over us, will, however,
To Commander Hartley goes the credit, as Honorary President, of
guiding us during the last four years. He has steered the ship—"the dear
old class"—nobly through the rough seas of several successful class
During the past we have lost some of our members, but have accumu'
lated many of the brighter lights of other years, until now we are a really
superior aggregation, and we are willing to tell the world so. Among
our members we include the President of the Alma Mater Society, the
President of the Men's Undergraduate Society, the President of the
Engineering Discussion Club, the President of the G. M. Dawson Gee
logical Discussion Club, the President of the Chemistry Society, and a
host of other executive officers. Our athletic record is also a thing to be
proud of, considering our small number. We have had members represent
the University on the track teams and basketball teams in the inter'
collegiate meets; also members on the McKechnie Cup rugby team and
rowing teams. Amongst the other noble accomplishments of our members
was the initiation of "The Battle of the Pants," and the use of bowler
hats for Science men.
The first two years we spent in a mathematical atmosphere, but
these last two we have begun to broaden our minds. We have found
new uses for our implements. A ten inch slide rule has been found an
admirable instrument; it will do anything from telling fortunes to calcuk'
ting girls' ages. One of our members is reported to carry a two foot model.
The Chemistry Department acquired some of our numbers. Whether
they were drawn there because of the closeness to the Arts people or
from sheer delight of breaking glass, violent explosions or odoriferous
gases is not known, at least the Science Building is yet intact.

the order, "Take this down, please." There
was a time when Frank skipped lectures here
and there, but never again; he gets his orders
from outside now, and rumor has it that she
is very strict. To chronicle "Benny's" activities
in student affairs would be difficult; but it is
in keeping with his record to mention that the
Engineering Discussion Club enjoyed one of
its most successful years under his guiding hand.
Jason is the philosopher of Civil '27; further,
he is a practical philosopher. In periods of
desperation (lectures on the theory of concrete
design) Jason stands aside and views things
in a practical way. This characteristic particularly manifests itself around exam, time, when
he replaces worry with work. He is shy with
the fair sex; this we attribute, however, to the
virtual impossibility of mixing philosophy and
women. Jason is an authority on concrete

Charlie is a mechanic in name only, for he
intends to study business administration after
graduation. He introduced himself to us when
he was elected yell king during his Sophomore
year, a position which he ably filled. Since
that time he has taken an active part in ithe
social life of the class and yet always pulls
down a good average in his examinations.
With his large repertoire of popular music,
Charlie helps to maintain the morale of the
class during the weary lab. periods. We wish
him the best of good luck in all"his ventures.

he is the only man in the class who really

Oscillation Squad" of the Signal Corps. Our
loss is the army's gain.

Popularly known as "Dad" and hails from
Victoria, but is otherwise considered normal.
He swings an "awful" mean oar in the senior
eight crew and represents the basketball brains
of the "Big Three" Chemicals. Played Senior A
basketball for five years, as a matter of fact,
and won his Big Block in '25. "Dad" (also
"Hawk") was President of his class last year
and was pressed into service in the Arts '20
relay, where he proceeded to show "the boys"
how to shake a wicked hoof.
Civil '27. Art. came here from the Queen
Charlotte Islands. He is well acquainted with
the coast of British Columbia, more particularly
the tides, having spent several summers with
the Hydrographic Survey. During the winter
he keeps in trim by playing McKechnie rugby
and running in the Arts '20 Relay. When the
courts are dry he plays a game of tennis
slightly worse than Rothwell, but is not
discouraged as yet. Art. is interested in the
unfair sex and is very fond of shindigs and
musical comedy.
Second of the trio of Geologists and one
of the originals of Sc. '27. When not playing
McKechnie Cup rugby or guiding the destinies
of the Dawson Club, he amuses himself by
making first classes. Long reputed to be oft
women, but has recently reformed. Favorite
diversion: Growing beards in the summer and
attending country-store nights in the winter.
Favorite saying: "I think I'm slightly mad to
go to rugby practice this afternoon."
This is not an introduction to Otto by any
means. Everybody knows the Electrical from
Cranbrook, for Otto is one who has found time
during his Science career to be active in
athletic lines and popular at dances. At one
time he played on one of the senior basketball
teams, but lately has devoted more time to
swimming and has been successful in breaking
the intercollegiate breast-stroke record. But
why tell these things, you all know the boy
with the smile. Certainly the girls do, don't
they, Otto? Oh, boy!
Yes! Here he is in person—"Chuck" Leek
himself. Some may not believe it, as he has
rather hidden himself this year. Coming back
to college about two weeks late in the fall,
he took to serious studying and didn't get over
the habit all year. Speaking of soccer, "Chuck"
knows his onions there, as he does in quite
a few things. He is already quite an accomplished heating engineer. He never resorts
to hot air though—or perhaps it would be
better to say "rarely." There are times, aren't
there, Charles Leek? Don't forget he's a
North Vancouver hails him as their native.
He is really half Arts, but long intimate
contact with the Foresters has made him
almost human. His accomplishments are varied
—from Christmas plays to manager of the first
soccer team. It is rumored that he will be
back next year in search of more knowledge,
or, perhaps, there is some other attraction.
Civil '27. According to Mr. Matheson,
"Larry" is destined to be, some day, the
wealthy boy of the class. Perhaps he will then
invest in a new slide rule. His favorite pastimes
are skating, tennis and swimming, and occasionally taking home his classmates' text books.
He also finds time to patronize most of the
Varsity dances. At present he is chief designer
of the Burrard Street Bridge Co. He spends
his summer in a variety of pursuits including
sugar refining, mining and subdividing. Future:
To be considered later.
"Heggie," fifty per cent, of the firm of
Mathewson and Mosher, designers of high
frequency D.C. machinery, practises the soccer
that Gale preaches. Though his fame as
Canada's premier goal-keeper is known in far-
off Australia, he is the most modest of men.
To Mr. Mosher we are indebted for a very
lucid description of the art of splicing telephone
cables and operators. Greatest horror: To get
a short dancing partner.
The scholar of our trio of Geologists; also
one of the originals. Our hard luck kid—he
tried to slide from the top to the bottom of
a mountain with disastrous results. Popular
to an unusual degree for an ex-class treasurer
and a class Lit. representative. Is one of the
best marksmen in the city. His sole topic of
conversation is guns. Main ambition in life
is to find a Brontosaurus to ornament his
front garden. He'll get one, too, or we are
much mistaken.
Another of the "Big Three" Chemicals, and
in this capacity has been investigating the
possibilities of the following reaction: KI+
S2 = KISS. This versatile scientist showed his
ability by winning the "Engineer's Book
Prize" in his third year. For many moons he
was a pillar of the Musical Society and during
the past season guided the destinies of the
Outdoors Club and the Chemistry Society,
besides "sitting on" the Men's Athletic
Executive. According to his numerous feminine
admirers his "form" in the Arts '20 relay is
only surpassed by his terpsichorean efforts.

Known to all and sundry as "Pete," he
aspires to fame in the field of D.C. transformers. He was always a hound for work,
until, one year, he won a scholarship; since
then the bulk of his time has been taken up
by swimming, Einstein's theory, and now,
monograms—whatever they are. He represents
our class annually on the swimming team, and
last year, when we achieved fame in the interclass billiard tournament, he was greatly in
the lamplight as a non-starter.
"Gentlemen, a toast to the king!"
And by this shall he be remembered. Bert
is our congenial pessimist, but his ability to
"stick" promises to make him more than a
mere lightnin' jerker; and the army, in combination with subsequent hard luck, has fitted
him for any emergency. His lack of interest
in the beauty of the passing show is something
of a bluff, we find, since, after all, there is a
little fairy in the background; though with
all the low cunning of a mathematician he
has kept her out of sight for five years.
The studious member of Forestry '27.
Considers the profs, are insulting him if they
don't give him at least seven first classes.
However, as a man with such a great drawback, George is a good fellow and liked by
everybody. In his spare moments he looks
after the minutes of the S.M.U.S. He takes
a keen interest in public speaking and is a
star goalkeeper for the soccer teams. For some
reason he is attracted greatly by the General
John is perpetually making a nuisance of
himself, either by obtaining first class averages
or by trying to collect class fees. However,
in spite of these defects, he is quite human,
and his experience last year as Treasurer of
the Science Undergrad. makes it possible for
him to extract fees more or less painlessly.
He is fond of hard work, so he took the volt-
chasing course and can now cook a lab. with
the best of them.
Jimmy is one of the stars of Science '27
(being a Mechanical), and is among those
ambitious people who take an Arts course for
a sideline, having received his B.A. last year.
He has always been one of the best on the
class relay team. If you want the real "dope"
on Jimmy, write to Field; but his classmates
are sure that Jimmy will make a success of
whatever he tackles after leaving U.B.C.
Page Fifty-two THE     UNIVERSITY     OF     BRITISH     COLUMBIA
Better known to us as "Brick" in virtue of
his crowning glory. Brick has taken a great
deal of interest in athletics, representing the
University in two intercollegiate track meets
in the capacity of a weight thrower. He is
probably the only man in the University who
can "throw the hammer." In his first year
he was one of the mainstays of the Freshman
rugby team and was a member of the Miller
Cup team in his Junior year. In spite of the
above diversions, "Brick" finds some odd
moments to work a few "differential equations."
J. T. says that he is the best man in the
class, though it is not generally known, and
if he says it's so, well IT'S SO!!!!, with plenty
of exclamation marks. He is our genuine radio
expert, so if any one wants to know what's
the matter with a radio, just ask him. He'll
tell you that the length of the antenna does
not bear the ratio of e-Vbx to the of the "B"
batteries for a given amplification factor of
the   rheostat.   At   least   it   sounds   like   that.
Last, but not least, of the firm of consulting
geologists. He started originally with Sc. '24,
but two years of their society being enough he
tried working for a living, after which he
joined Sc. '26. The bug of work got him again
for a year, but he saw the error of his ways
and joined us in time to graduate with us.
In between times he has worked to make the
Premier Mine what it is. He is a past President
of the Outdoors Club and a keen photographer.
Born and educated in Edinburgh, Scotland,
John did not come to this country until the
age of ten years. In 1922, he entered University,
took his B.A. degree in 1926, and this year
graduates B.Sc. in Civil Engineering. From the
first he was a man marked for office, being
successively, President Science '26, President
of the Literary and Scientific Department, and
in his final year, President of the Alma Mater
Society. In addition, he is an International
Debater, a first-rate oarsman, and inter-class
rugby player and relay man, and to cap all,
a consistent first-class student. A friendly smile
and six feet of cheerful masculinity John
Civil '27. Bill came to Canada from London,
but spent four years in France before coming
to the University. His quiet, sincere manner
and absolute impartiality in difficult situations
have made him a splendid President of the
Men's Undergraduate Society this year, having
previously served as President of Science and
of his year. His other activities include the
Musical Society; soccer, where he captained
the first team for some time, and inter-class
relay and rowing. Perhaps Bill is best summed
up in the phrase, "An officer and a gentleman."

Civil '27. Bob comes from California; but
at an early age deserted the land of sunshine
for the damper climate of Vancouver. He
served overseas with the artillery, and on his
return joined Sc. '27 in its first year. He
has developed a taste for theoretical investigations, and this year spends his spare time
chasing influence lines on the Gottschalk
Continostat. He is a musician and performs
ably on the flute for the Varsity Orchestra.
Steady and reliable, quiet and unassuming,
Bob  should  go far  in  his  chosen  profession.
Mort.'s first activities with the engineers
were with '25, at which time he intended to
go in for architectural structures. The attractions of the Granby Consolidated proved too
strong, and, after staying out a couple of years,
he has finally returned to us to graduate in
Mining. As a mining engineer, Mort. bids
fair to go a long way. His cool head and quick
eye have made him an asset to the hockey
team. He is also known to indulge in niblick
wielding. He holds the Dunsmuir Scholarship
for '25-'26 and thinks Jack Bolshevick Shannon
the ideal  mining gentleman.
One of our hard rock miners; the only one
to stay with the class throughout the four
years. His special aim in life is mine development, and in this pursuit he spends his summers
in the North. Winning the Dunsmuir Scholarship has not detracted from his frequent
appearance at social functions. We would like
to know how he manages to get in on so many
class draws. One of the mainstays on the
class relay team and class representative in
badminton tournaments.
Jimmie served overseas, and upon his return
went to the University of Alberta. Later he
came West and joined the U.B.C. Jim. is the
town planner of the class and proved bis
ability by organizing the students in the city
traffic count. A triangulation expert, he served
as instructor in the summer survey school.
Jimmie is a man of wide experience and is a
convincing talker on many subjects. On the
floor of the Civil '27 Discussion Club, Jimmie
keeps the boys guessing with many high-
sounding words and expressions.
A true Victorian, one of the best. Doug,
had mechanical inclinations, but after looking
over the said worthies he though better of his
ways and threw his famous shoes in with the
hard rock men. An active member of the
Outdoors Club and its President for the
year 1925-26, Doug, has been a keen follower
of the elusive end of the trail and has made
hiking a pleasure for many University people.
He also follows Holy Cows milkmen home and
knows all the morning newsboys. We, of course,
infer that he gets up with them. His cheerfulness, fairness, optimism, comradeship and
gentlemanly characteristics are known to all,
"Waddy" belonged originally to Science '16
and was a prominent member of the Track Club.
When the war broke out he traded in his slide
rule for a tin hat, and later was awarded the
Military Medal. A taste acquired for Heinie's
gas led him to take up coal mining on his
return. Like a prodigal son, he came back to
the "U" to join us in our third year. His
ambition: To be manager of one of the coal
mines in Paris, if any.
Phil., or "Ossie," as he is known to his
associates, seems to be intended to test our
ability to obey the commandment, "Thou
shalt not covet." From the wave of his hair
to the shine on his shoes he is what most of
us would like to be. Then there is his charming
Etonian manner (perfectly genuine) and his
fleet coupe. Phil, is one of the electrical eight,
and his hard work adds to our envy at exam,
time. For recreation he turns to the Rowing
Club, of which he is Captain, or to his class
executive, of which he has been a hard-working
member for years  and  years.
Science '27
(Continued from Page Forty-seven)
The majority of our class have retired to an exclusive building
occupied by the Electrical and Mechanical Department. They are the
self'Styled elite of the class. They contain most of the class executive.
We have not heard what their accomplishments are yet; but probably
the Electricals are still endeavoring to put curved lines of force into the
square corners of a magnet; and at least the Mechanicals have not yet
successfully mastered the technique of riding the belts and pulleys of
their high power machines.
The Civils are exclusive and intelligent. Possibly they have acquired
their precision by gazing through their transits, or possibly it is the large
"factor of safety" they use that allows their members to acquire numerous
first classes. Their use of calculus lets them integrate timbers into bridges.
We would like to know if waterworks is all one word, or do they spell
it with a hydrant.
Three of our class decided they could rise in the world best by
causing other things to fall and so joined the Loggers' Society, better
known as the Forestry Department. In spite of the fact that their essential
occupation is concerned with laying giant timbers low, they have acquired
a remarkable vocabulary of high sounding words, which they speak of
in reference to the various parts of their victims.
The Miners are a mixture of a "hard rock gang" and coal diggers,
originating from the four winds and of all years since the University was
founded. They have gained a reputation for organising mining excursions
on which they are accompanied by the Metallurgists and the Geologists.
The good looking waitresses and the fine cook have warranted their
decision that Cassidy is the best mine in the province.
The Metallurgists are but two in number; but "egad!" they will
make a success in life. They have recently acquired an office of their own
and have already advertised themselves as "Insulting Engineers." Possibly
that represents their special method of attack in consulting practice.
The Geologists, three in number, are quite inseparable. Rarely one
may be heard mournfully wailing on the campus, "Oh, where are the
other twcthirds of my class?" This sound has been mistaken for the
fog'horn at Point Atkinson.
Our Geologists may be seen at any hour of the day peering into
their microscopes in the petrology lab., when they are not watching
Freshettes go past the window. They speak learnedly of petrogensis
and trilobita in the futile hope of convincing the hard rock miners that
they are superior beings.
In conclusion, let us gratefully acknowledge the work of the staff
for us. We owe much to them. It is they and not the buildings which
make the University of British Columbia what it is, and it is to them
that credit goes for helping to make us what we will be.

"To know her is to love her."
Our "Ersie"—energetic, resourceful, sympathetic, independent and efficient. In the five
years she has been with us she has made many
true friends. Favorite subjects: Vital statistics
and motor mechanics. Heard every Monday
at- 12.05: "We'll never get a place in the
cafeteria now."
Nora is a fair maiden with a natural marcel
and grey-green eyes. We all envy her ability
to do without food and sleep, a characteristic
which proves her to be one of those rare beings
—"a born nurse." We also envy her first class
average. It is rumored that our Nora is interested in other things beside careers
otherwise we should predict a very happy one
for  her.
(Nursing). At a first glance Ruby appears
quiet and retiring; but appearances are
deceptive. She is a jolly "all-round" girl with
a sweetness and charm of her own. After
obtaining her degree in Arts, Ruby chose as
her profession Nursing, and a course in Public
Health. We predict for the future a place
among the needy on the West Coast or perhaps
it will be the interior--who knows?
"The toil which stole from thee so many an
Is ended—and the fruit is at thy feet."
"Be to her virtues a little kind,
Be to her faults a little blind."
"Vic." started her college career with Arts
'26, but in her second year she took advantage
of that woman's privilege to change to the
Nursing course. If you want to know how to
get out of making a public speech, ask Vic.
Snappy brown eyes, curly brown wig and lots
of pep—that's Vic.

Do you know Fran.? What Fran.? Why our
Fran.! At least she is ours now, having joined
our ranks in our first year, after one wild
canter with Arts '25. Chief occupation—a
game of catch with the golden ball of scholarships. Whence came she? With spontaneous
vigor and enthusiasm from the North Creston,
B.C. Whither does she go? To fair Victoria
to recuperate from the heavy t ask of ably
guiding our checkered destinies through our
final year.
NURSING is becoming a much more attractive profession, as the
increase in our numbers this year witnesses. There are thirty'four
of us now. Last year the Public Health Class had only seven members
while now it has fifteen.
Five years is a long time, but it passes with surprising rapidity.
Variety, which is said to be the spice of life, is certainly a feature of our
course. First we struggle with unfathomable physics problems and
odorous chemical experiments; then we study the interior decorations
of crabs and bunnies; next we plunge into the joys and sorrows of a
hospital training; finally we are initiated into the mysteries of public
health nursing and administration, suitably seasoned with such spicy
subjects as motor mechanics and vital statistics.
We have had various enjoyable festivities this year. Early in the term
a tea at the home of Miss Dorothy Olmstead helped us to become better
acquainted with our new members. At the close of the fall term we all
enjoyed a delightful Christmas party at the home of Mrs. Brock. Once
more we are to have the pleasure of assisting the Science men with the
decorations for their dance. We also hope to give a dance of our own.
The officers of the Nursing Undergraduate Society for this year
were: Honorary President, Miss Mabel Gray; President, Frances Lyne;
Vice'President, Myrtle Harvey; Secretary, Mary Ross; Treasurer,
Margaret McDonald; Athletic Representative, Isobel Henderson; Literary
Representative, Mary Armstrong.

It is quite a time since I rote yer last. I 'opes yer are well. Well,
I'm still going to college trying ter get perpheshionaliz;ed as I suppose
yer no.
We is all divided up into divisions now, cause we is following
individooal pursoots. We got three guys what call themselves Foresters.
They would make good cooks for some swell young thing, sich as Hepsie
Meddergrass, what works in the Four Corner's Drug Store sody founting,
cause they's always cooking up results. They is Jim Crickmay, Hughie
Hodgins and Touseau. I told you all about our geologist afore, he is purty
nice but they aint no sign for yer to throuw me down Sally.
We got some guys what calls themselves Civils, Sally, but they
really is awful struck on themselves and not a bit civil to there school
teachers. They is Butch Jones, 'e isnt a butcher but comes from Nanaimo
so is quite 'armless. He and Doug Bell knows all about how to dance
the Charlies' Town and 'ow to git 6 people in a coupe and 'ow to purpose
and sich like. They do a little book larnin' once't in a while. Gordy Logan,
Joe Marin and Alan Stewardson are really the true type of hengineers,
although they knows very little of engines, they should make better
breakmen methinks, Sally. They smoke cigars, carry a cane and eat tolerable
much. They is purty plump too also. Hank McQuarrie, Jim Sutherland
and Bob Young spend most of there time eating polar cakes which is
a new fangled concoction.
Also we got two guys what study all about the indispetism of the
relations of cafeteria pie to the auroreos balsm. They is the chemicals,
Mr. McDermaird and Mr. Thompson. They is also some guys what does
considerable diggin' and make mud pies. They calls themselves the Minors.
They is "Figi" Farrington, 'andsome Mr. Gibbs what 'ales from Spain
and Mr. Fraser what claims B.C. is the only place to live in.
The last bunch of us is those birds what calls themselves the
Mechanicals and Electricals. They lives in the Madhouse which is situated
near the Furnace Room. They 'as a blind pig all there own in the electrical
lab., and does there own washin. This group is enhanced by Gloomy
Sinclair what grasps all the scholarships, Stuffy Tupper, what never
does nuthink but play Rugby, which is awfully ruff and hazardus, Blondy
Gus, Sheik Harvie what wares spats, and 'as the Slickest 'air, jist like
Rubein Offit who sells Oilcake down to Uncle Ebineesers, Goofy Crawford
who is our president. Twit Newmarch what runs the hockey club, papa
Mooryboer his side kick, Shiny Emery, Stumpy Astell, Hick Duncan
and sleepy Tokunaga.
Well Sally we 'as 'ad quiet a successful year since we 'ad a class
party but it was a 'uge effort.
Hoping you are the same,

Science 30
DURING the first year of its existence, the class of Science '30 has made
itself very well known about the campus by its enthusiastic participa'
tion in various student activities.
At the beginning of the session they turned out loyally to suppress
the unruly Freshmen, but were not adequately supported by the other
years, and so were obliged to be "among those assisting in serving"
at an "at home" for young whippersnappers shortly after.
The next big day for the class was the opening day of the Home
Coming week end. It was then that each man donned, for the first time,
the now familiar Stanfield's red lable underwear. It has been the first
class to adopt distinctive dress in the history of this University.
Stanley Park Pavilion was the scene of the young engineers' red
letter day. There, under the guidance and example of Dr. and Mrs. T. C.
Hebb, Dr. and Mrs. D. Buchanan, and Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Duckering,
they paid tribute to King Terpsichore in a reverent and fitting manner.
The first Science Banquet took place during the same week, and
the class gathered 'round the festive board to show that wielding ruling
pens and learning legends to the effect that F—ma, and pv—RT, is not
the engineer's sole calling in life.
It is generally accepted that Christmas exams, contribute more to
the infant mortality of Science men than hydrophobia can ever hope to do.
When, the epidemic took its usual toll of young lives, and when the
boys had finished wishing each other "Happy New Year's", they noticed
a few more empty desks lying about in the draughting room
In the spring term they drifted into theatrical channels, and gave
a "pep meeting" in honor of the Maori Rugby Players
The Science dance was held in February, and a contingent was
sent to uphold the dignity of the class.
In the line of sport, most branches find followers in the ranks of
Science '30, and many members of the class are to be found in other
clubs, and on various executives.
The class is proud of its choice of Dr. T. C. Hebb for Honorary
President, and are very grateful to him for his keen interest and his
"fatherly advice."
In conclusion, Science '30 wishes all members of the graduating
classes every success in their life work, and hope they cherish happy
memories of their undergraduate days.
Agriculture '27
A class history, did you say? All right; but it isn't at all sensational,
no comets or shooting stars. We claim no Nurmi's, All'Black prospects
or jazz kings, but we do claim a solid aggregation of students in the
University. We have enough fingers in enough pies to keep us all out of
mischief. Jack Berry manages to keep the Aggie Undergrad. in trim.
Helen Milne assists as Vice'President of the faculty and of our class.
Syd. Bowman leads the Livestock Club and the "Aggie Choir" at the
pep meetings. His twin pep producer, Les. Mallory, is the hard'worked
Secretary of the Aggie Undergrad. and the Biological Discussion Club.
Herb. Ross presides over the Aggie Discussion Club and scribes for the
class, and Gab. Luyat is our athlete of renown. Les. cleaned up a nice
scholarship last year, and the rest of us went to the Portland International
on the Varsity judging teams and brought home a carload of silverware.
As previously, we boast no geniuses; but we also boast no sloths.
Our aim has been to combine work with play in proportions which will
enable us to make our University years an all- round success.
The day was warm, and the conductor informed me that our train
had stopped for an hour. In a desperate attempt to find at least a substitute
for human comradeship, I turned to the young Arts man beside me.
"You retread the path to learning?" I suggested. He turned upon
me. There was a pallor on his lips, a frenzied light in his eyes.
"Yes," he cried, "I have one more glorious year. I must find out
many, many things—the laws of variability governing class draws, the
words of Euripides to the Romans, or is it Caesar to the Ephesians?
No matter, the last three verses of the "Dying Ghoul," I must learn the
sculptors of Homer and Odyssey, and the man who immortalised "Last
Night on the Back Porch." I must " but I fled. Chilliwack, as I last
saw it, was dead.
But, wonder of wonders, the place was alive. Around the corner
a band blared; all about election posters screamed. The band ceased.
A voice floated above the din: "Fellow citizens, as I have before stated,
ccoperation is the only step, etc., etc."
Familiar, by jove! Good old Jack! There I beheld him, planted beneath
the sign. "Return your Minister of Agriculture and save the country."
His eyebrows burned through the|crowd.;His oratory held them spell'
bound, swaying the mob as the wind sways the field of grass. But the
Dean's Ec. is the Dean's Ec. wherever you get it, so I left him in his glory.

In his Freshman and Sophomore years,
Gab. was noted in the athletic field. He played
McKechnie Cup and was dark horse in the
long lap in the Arts '20 relay. During the last
two seasons he has retired from sports on
account of a cracked knee and broken rib;
but he distinguished himself in the field of
international livestock judging, being a member
of the winning dairy cattle team in 1926. He
is a familiar figure to the night watchman on
the North Vancouver ferry docks.
As a member of the winning dairy cattle
team in 1925, and the winning dairy products
team in 1926, our big "butter and egg" man
has made a name for himself. This year, as
well as being President of his class, he directs
the activities of the Livestock Club, sits on
the Executive of the Literary and Scientific
Department, and is Chairman of the Senior
Executives. Syd. is a firm believer in the old
adage: "Women prefer blondes."
Les., who is just a shade faster and rangier
than the late Alma Mater, pulls a mean
paddle at the Rowing Club puddle. His time
is necessarily limited, because he plays both
social and athletic rugby, Canadian style.
He is Secretary of the Biological Discussion
Club and of the Aggie Undergrad. The Fruit
Growers' Scholarship went his way last year,
and this year he is an honor student, with a
thesis which will undoubtedly solve all the
problems of the fruit growers.
Jack came to us from Langley Prairie; but
we don't hold that against him. As high man
in judging dairy cattle in 1925, and in milk-
judging in 1926 at the Portland International,
Jack sets a stiff pace among the Western
colleges. Wherever he goes the silverware comes
home with him. With a level head and a silver
tongue, Jack successfully guides the destinies
of the Aggie Undergrad., and when he takes
these qualities back to the farm, only success
can follow his efforts.
The godmother of Hen. No. 6, while an expert
in poultry, still takes an interest in dairying
and livestock. At the Portland International
she beat all comers last year in horse-judging,
and this year in dairy products. As Vice-
President of the Aggie Undergrad. and of her
class, she is reported to have a "steadying
influence" on her frivolous fellow students.
As recreation she talks French in La Canadienne and warbles in the Glee Club.
Better known as "Bozzy," is our standby
in oratory and debating and this year is
President of the Aggie Discussion Club. It
was a sad blow to us when he renounced the
cows and clover and cast in his lot with the
lowly cockroach; but he is still a loyal Aggie
and demonstrated this fact by heading the
Agronomy team this year at the Portland
International. When not investigating social
conditions among cockroaches, Bozzy may be
found playing the banjo, or drinking tea with
damsels fair.
Agriculture '28
WE'RE few in numbers; but look at the quality and punch! Just
ask any bird who attended the barn dance we threw last fall, by
heck! Dick Asher has returned and as our President he sure knows his
oats. He has a very convincing personality, especially when inducing
Arts Freshies to wear green ties, and the Aggie Bouncing Committee,
under his able leadership, certainly did good work for its Alma Mater.
The ties that bind have nothing on the pants that rip! Just ask Dick
about this.
The class was represented by six members at the Pacific International
Exhibition at Portland who returned laden with trophies, American
socks and Chesterfields. The Agronomy team apparently did well, judging
by the vast quantities of the last two articles found in their grips. Cameron
McKenzie, of the dairy cattle team, cleaned up on the Holsteins and
received a gold handled cane for his endeavors. (He also received a few
knots in his pyjamas, a wet towel in his bed, and some cold, damp soap
at his toes when he went asleep the same night).
Mystery of the great bush fire reported in the Aggie common room
solved. Ed. Boyes was dragged from under a table blowing dense clouds
of pungent smoke from his rank old corn'Cob.
One of the brightest questions yet brought up by Duncan McKen^e
was on the subject of changing brands and has led to a rumor that he
intends to go in for cattle rustling when he graduates. If he does any
dirty work the class intends to have Doug. Mclntyre track that bad
"hombre" in a Yellow Taxi and stick a six gun in his ribs
Keith Thorneloe is the only one taking Dairying this year, and when
he isn't sneaking up on microbes he is waiting (patiently) for the fair
bacteriologists of the Dairy 3 lab. to give him a turn at the microscope.
My, he enjoyed those happy afternoons with the women. It is too bad
they didn't serve cake and have a regular tea fight.
Ken. Moffat is the moneyed man of Agriculture, handling the
filthy lucre of the Aggie Undergrad.
Bill Brown is the wee lad of the class and was one of the few Arts
men to see his mistake and change over to Agriculture.
Harold Eden may not know how to treat women; but when it comes
to navigating a sixteen'horse team with a ten'foot double disc around a
corner, Harold can show the profs, a few things
Education '27
WE, Education '27, are presumed by many of the unitiated to be a
group of staid and ancient moralists who take a ghoulish interest
in the unspeakable horrors of intelligence tests, I Q 's and child psychology.
It is a popular belief that we torture babies to establish their S'R connec'
tions. This, emphatically, is not so. You have only to regard Johnny
Grace, our patient, hard working, beaming President, to realize the innate
innocence and beauty of our souls. Isobel Barton, Vice'President, is
Johnny's "right'hand man," while Mildred Lynn, as Secretary, and
Cairns Gauthier, as Treasurer, are outstanding when it comes to figuring
how many class fees make a class party. Dorothy Arkwright and George
Vincent, though they blush to admit it, really do all the work, from
organizing medleys to managing relays—and all under the humble title
of "Lit. Rep." Gay Swencisky and Carl Barton occupy the "honorable"
positions of "Athletic Reps ," and are responsible for our signal successes
in that line of endeavor
Since we are, after all, the real social and intellectual elite of Varsity,
we will now turn our attention to our moronic relapses into the dissipa'
tions of common mortals. The first class party, in November, was held
at Killarney, and despite certain fatalities to the punch, went over
hilariously. The Christmas exams, needlessly interfered with our gaiety;
but the season again opened in February, when Doctor Wyman entertained
the class at a valentine party at her home This was an unqualified success,
and when twelve o'clock arrived it found faculty, Maoris and prospective
teachers mingling in mirthful medlies.
In order to keep us out of mischief on Sundays, Doctor and Mrs Weir
entertained at a series of delightful teas in our honor, and here it was
conclusively and definitely ascertained that the ancient art of cooking
has not been   lost.
In the "Time of the Breaking of Nations," our old friends and side'
kicks of '26 united with us in a final farewell to Youth's gaiety, and
danced deliriously till dawn, or thereabouts, and we now go forth into
a wild jungle of school trustees, moronic infants, contracts, epidemics,
I Q 's, fortunes for the few, and, for the rest, superannuations and the
Old Folks' Home.
By the way, our relay team "also ran!"
"Ave atque Vale "
The Master's Course
ALMOST a year has gone by since that May afternoon when, an
expectant throng, the graduating students of '26 filed out of the
Library to receive their degrees in the crowded Auditorium. The same
thing will happen this year. To many the event is the stepping'Stone to
the world beyond; to others it is rather the threshold to further studies.
Among the last'named are those who have been working this year towards
the Master's degree. It is the effort of this page to provide some mention
of these students and their work, at least collectively; it is indeed un'
fortunate that its narrow limit forbids a personal word, however brief,
concerning each.
Altogether there are some forty'six candidates for the M.A., one
for the M.A.Sc, and three for the M.S.A. Of this number approximately
twenty'one will graduate this spring. Some have been in regular attendance
throughout the session, while others have been pursuing their study
privately under the guidance of one or other of the departments of the
University. All alike undergo some form of examination, and in addition
submit a thesis based upon some bit of original investigation. The work
itself may be partly a continuation of undergraduate studies, usually
confined to two subjects, partly an original and practical application of
the principles already learned in the field of research.
Agriculture '27
(Continued from Page Sixty-three)
I was sauntering peacefully along when a large farmer bounded
into my path. "Gab., as I live," quoth I. "Why, hello, Bozzy," he qoth
back. I suddenly remembered that he owned the great Purecream Farm,
the home of the carefree calf. "Say, have you got a match?" he asked.
While I supplied it I began plying questions. "Helen? Oh, she went
down to Oregon. Hitched, you know, some time ago. She ran up against
a guy with a swell poultry ranch. We can't figure out which she went
after, the fellow or the poultry; but she manages them both pretty well.
"HowZ'Z'Z'Zat? Who, Syd.? Our big butter and egg man is over in
England just now buying some fancy Jerseys for that big American outfit
that he is managing. He always did like to travel and he's a big figure
in livestock circles now."
At this point in his account a hand clasped my shoulder. Wheeling
around, whose sweet face should I behold but our dear Lester's. I seized
his hand, but words failed me. Les. broke out into a fit of yodelling. When
the tense emotion passed I asked first after the family and then what
he had been doing in the last dozen years. "Oh," he replied, "I dived
into some more Chem. and landed the job as head of the Department of
Agricultural Chemistry at Ottawa. I'm just home for my vacation."
The Publications Board
THE work of the Publications Board has this year proceeded from a
position of splendid isolation on the campus, owing to the twin
facts that the Chief has not been under the necessity of sitting on the
Students' Council, and that the Pub. as a body has maintained its position
aloof from other student activities. The precedent of hard work was well
established by the end of last year, and the exacting duties of the present
year have strengthened the example so that the Pub., in its orderly
confusion and rush, is undeniably the busiest of all student executives.
The Chief, profiting by the example of the world's great men, bent
all his efforts toward the selection of an efficient staff, and having gathered
together an extremely capable editorial corps, sat back and resigned to
the members thereof the not inconsiderable responsibility of producing,
twice'weekly, the official student organ, the "Ubyssey." The work has
been well and conscientiously done.
Dave Warden, "senior" Senior Editor, has watched with a grave
classical eye over the fortunes of the Friday issue, and has used his best
efforts and a Ciceronian style in the moral instruction or defiance of his
reading public. Steady, cool and reliable, with an enviable faculty for
application to work, Dave has been able to "stand fast" in the face of
a shortage of copy.
Don. Calvert, of the Tuesday issue, has wielded a careless, misan'
thropic flail over all the frailties of the race, and has done so with a high
Olympian disregard of result, or lack thereof. This detachment is valuable
to counteract the strictly partisan activities of his brother members of
the fourth estate, who are emphatically men with a mission.
The Associate Editors are at present four in number, but a different
quartette from that with which the "Ubyssey" set forth. At present
George Davidson, the youthful fashion'plate, holds seniority above
his co'workers. George has rarely been able to induce his Senior to print
an editorial from the Davidson pen, the reasons being professional secrets;
but George knows his worth in other lines. Jimmy Sinclair, who came from
the rugbyfield to the copydesk, showed his ability at an early date to
write corrosive editorials and also to make a flying tackle at a paste'pot.
May Christison walked around for a few months, dreading the time
when she would be asked to write an editorial, and astonishing herself
(if nobody else) with her unsuspected ability. Doris Crompton has worn
brilliant colors, watched the publicity of the Players' Club, flirted with
the editor of the Tuesday issue and has, in addition, cheerfully undertaken
a great deal of hard work. All these junior members of the staff have
undertaken editorial work and more responsibility than was ever wished
on to their predecessors.
The Sporting Editor, "Pinkey" Stewart, has undertaken a difficult
department of the paper, and has given entire satisfaction to his fellow
editors. His line of slang and his nimble wit have combined to make
(Continued on Page Seventy-three)
&moorsM4m STVOIQ W
"Vernard's Vernacular Vulgarities" a popular feature, while the steadier
talent of Maurice DesBrisay has given readers the information they want
without the froth.
The Feature Staff, composed of Frank Pilkington (the busiest man
on the campus) along with Pat Keeling, a fluent metrist, and Rod Pilkington, has been a source of mingled delight and wonder to other depart'
ments which do not include hair'trigger senses of humor. The topical
interest of the "Muck'a'Muck" page has been developed to a point never
reached before; the "Lay of Hen No. 6" will never grow stale, and
"Scalpings" has been an able satire of certain forms of student delinquency.
When the nature of the task is considered, the Feature Staff is to be
highly commanded, if only by the more discriminating critics.
Mamie Moloney, the office ray of sunshine, has acquitted herself
well as P.I.PiA. Editor and has "culled" (to use Gus Madeley's word)
interesting items from other college publications. Mamie has brought
to her work the most valuable asset of an exchange editor—the ability
to remain cheerful when these items are cut out by heartless "makeup V
Gerry Stevens has been the "big noise" of the Business Staff. His
chief worry is the size of the telephone bill, but he has been able on
occasion to keep the extravagant intentions of the "Muck" Staff under
control by refusing loudly to run the paper without "ads." His secretary,
Evelyn Fuller, has managed diplomatically to draft his business cor'
respondence by softening the Mussolini tone which he adopts towards
Bev. Patrick and Ralph James have combined to carry on the work
overlooked by their chief in his whirlwind passage through the Pub.,
and their quiet labors have been noted for due recording herein. They
do good by stealth and blush to find it fame. Don. Farris has uncovered
a valuable ability to collect bills; but keeps to himself the secret of his
success. Ross Tolmie is without peer on the business staff as a solicitor
of new advertising accounts, and in the collection of those accounts he
is not a step behind Don.
As the Chief of the Reporting Staff, Max. Cameron has assembled
an array of useful talent, which is responsible for the "backbone" matter
of the paper. He is not above rolling up his sleeves in the cause of Canadian
Rugby and writing an invariably laudatory report of that Club's doings;
the reporters themselves have been very faithful in the discharge of duty,
and much credit is due them. The one and only "Gus" Madeley, for
instance, regards the Pub. as holy ground in which to park his slicker,
while his reportorial work is a slender quantity.
"Ubyssey" distribution has been in the capable hands of Jim Taylor,
with the willing assistance of David Steele, Ivor Solly, Basil Wright,
Clarence Truax and Roswell Garner. These men run the gauntlet on
Tuesdays and Fridays, but always come up smiling.

rii Showing that there is a great deal of energy still on the campus,
in the Literary and Scientific field, at least, several clubs have applied to
us this past year for recognition as University organizations. The Thoth
Club has been newly formed and shows great promise. The new German
Club, "Der Deutsche Verein," is very energetic and intends to justify
itself by being an asset to the University. A very new and well planned
Club gaining recognition is the Students' International Club. It has a
very sincere aim, which is to foster international friendship and to eliminate
national arid racial prejudices on the campus.
The Musical Society has had so much success in its past concerts
that this year it is putting on a two'night performance, in that way
trying to satisfy all those wishing to attend. The Players' Clue? is as
outstanding as ever. The Christmas plays were excellent and they served
to unearth several new stars who will perform in this year's spring play,
"The Romantic Young Lady."
In closing, the executive of the Literary and Scientific Department
of 1926'27, ably led by Mr. Max Wright, wishes the new executive
the best of luck and success for their coming term.

to the modems, not neglecting, however, the established author's.
The archives night, nowa tradition, considered "H. G. Wells" in a
paper reread by Norman Robertson, B.A.; "John Buchan" and"Compton

Marsh, B.A., excellently interpreted the Russian author, Ddstoevsky.
Mrs. H. F.j Angus gave a treatment as poetic and restrainedJas its subject
to "Christina Rossetti." "Herman Melville," too little known-,'' and
"Samuel Pepys," ever new and interesting, formed the topics of twb other
papers. Two general studies: "What is Poetry?" (not yet settled) and
"Letters" completed the year's offering.

Men's Literary Society
THIS year has been a period of radical innovation in the Men's Literary
Society. As we had lost our constitution, we were in a position to
follow our own sweet will and accordingly organized the Students'
This Parliament has become a psrmanent institution at the University.
Its purposes are to develop impromptu debating, the art of public speaking,
and a knowledge of parliamentary procedure. In addition it has succeeded
in developing a certain proficiency in more or less polished repartee.
The Students' Parliament is a place where important subjects of interest
to U.B.C. students are freely discussed, and thus serves as a sort of
Lower House to the Students' Council, where the real feeling and opinions
of the student body are expressed without restraint.
The Students' Parliament started out with the Murphy Government
in charge. This party was forced out and the Gold'Pilkington Govern'
ment took its place. After an exciting struggle in which rebellion in the
Cabinet ranks was apparent, the Reform Party resigned in favor of a
coalition headed by A. Whiteley. A reorganized Reform Party, led by
F. C. Pilkington, continued to be a very vigorous opposition during the
second term.
The Students' Parliament, however, was not simply concerned with
throwing out governments. A respectable amount of legislation was put
through, and many resolutions on lively subjects adopted or rejected.
Such subjects as "The Sophomores' conduct of initiation," "The abolition
of the present examination system," "Students' loans," "A second'hand
book-store," "The Chinese question" and "Fraternities" were discussed
with great enthusiasm and feeling. Now that the foundations have been
laid, the coming year will see a rapid expansion of the Parliament, with
the prevailing parties consolidated.
The Men's Literary Society has also taken the plunge into another
new sphere of activity. What promises to be a permanent High School'
Freshman Debating League has been started, and only awaits some kind
enthusiast to present a trophy. This year we sent Freshman teams against
Vancouver College and King Edward, King George and Lord Byng High
Schools to debate on subjects of interest to high school students. This
contract has been made with our former Alma Maters, and a chance
has been given to bring out what debating talent there is in our future
Freshman years.
The Men's Lit. again entered two teams in the Vancouver Debating
League with varying success. This League, in which we were pitted
against the crack teams of the city, provided us with a great amount
of experience that has stood us in good stead. The "U.B.C." and "Varsity"
teams have made their place in the League and intend to stay there until
they win the cup.
At the time of writing, the Inter'Class Debating League is not
yet finished. In this schedule, also, we made radical changes. An elimina'
tion series for losers was arranged to soften the brutality of the knock-out

'"PHE good ship "WL.S." set out one bright October morning for
-*- Germany. Before giving orders to weigh anchor, the captain (Alice
Weaver) summoned her crew (Phyllis Hemsworth, Ethel Fugler, Cora
Harding, Annie Taylor, Ethel Moffat and Jean Andrew), and after a
short conference decided on the course. Captain, crew and passengers
were in high hopes of a good trip. The ship, with sails spread, left harbor
under the direction of the able pilot (Mrs. A. F. B. Clark) and driven
by a fair wind (student interest), made good progress, arriving safely
at her first port of call. Here the travellers were entertained by Miss
Helen Badgley and Misses Maud Walsh, Milla Alihan and Mary Esler,
who contributed a musical program.
Leaving port, the "W.L.S." struck stormy weather, but managed
to hold her course, though progress was slow. Misses Margaret O'Neill
and Helen Smith, of Arts '29, debated with Misses Margaret Burton
and Ethel McDowell, of Arts '30, on a subject of educational interest.
By this time most of the passengers were keeping to their cabins, and
only a few turned out to hear Arts '29 win. An interval of great anxiety
followed (Christmas exams.), but the storm was safely weathered. The
wind fell, the waves subsided, and now the ship lay becalmed, sails
spread to catch the slightest breeze. The Captain held an emergency
meeting with her crew, and it was decided to give up hopes of reaching
Germany, and to make for the nearest shelter as soon as the wind should
For the pleasure of the passengers an oratorical contest was arranged
and a date set for the try-outs. It was further decided to hold the contest
in conjunction with a similar one organized aboard the "M.L.S." as soon
as the sister ships should reach port at the same time.

chance of winning the league. As matter stand, Arts '28 and Arts '27
have won their initial debates, while Science is waiting until the losers
have fought it out among themselves.
The oratorical schedule is billed for the end of March, when it will
be held in conjunction with the Women's Lit. The preliminary round
resulted in the survival of Paul and Denis Murphy, Ralph Stedman and
David Wadlinger. With these contestants the contest is sure to be
"better than ever."

were: Lieutenant-Governor, Dr. H. Keenleyside; Speaker, L. Laing, and
Premier, A. Whiteley.

Der Deutsche Verein
OWING to the increasing interest in German among the students
a Club, "Der Deutsche Verein," has been formed. Its aim is to
provide further facilities for acquiring fluency in the language and to
interest students in the life and culture of Germany. So far the Club
has been very successful.
The executive of "Der Deutsche Verein" is as follows: Honorary
President, Dr. Maclnnes; Honorary Vice'President, Miss Battle; Pres'
ident, Beattie McLean; Vice'President, Alfreda Thompson; Secretary
Treasurer, Ruth Sugarman. As Miss Sugarman was unable to return to
the University for the second term, Miss Elsie Nordberg undertook
her duties.
The programmes arranged for the meetings have been interesting
and varied. The untiring efforts of the Honorary President and the
Honorary Vice'President and the executive contributed in no small
degree to their success. A lecture on "Bavaria and Munich" was very
interesting and instructive, while German games and the relating of
anecdotes have considerably increased the vocabulary of the members.
The Classics Club
THE past year has been the most successful in the history of the
Classics Club. Under the leadership of President David Warden
the Club has flourished and has increased both the number of meetings
and the number of members. The executive was as follows: Honorary
President, Prof. H. T. Logan; President, David Warden, '27; Vice'
President, Miss Day Walker, '27; Secretary'Treasurer, George F.
Davidson, '28.
The papers this year have been more numerous and all of great merit.
As compared with the first term of last year, when two papers were
presented, this year five papers were read in the first term. To date^the
following have given papers: Miss Day Walker, '27, on Ancient Finance;
Robert Thorpe, on Roman Roads; David Warden, '27, on Rome Prior to
753 B.C.; Miss Winnie Boyes, '27, on Roman Religion; George Davidson,
'28, on Julius Caesar; and James Duncan, '27, on Rome and Christianity.
At the time of writing the Club is looking forward to a number of papers,
one by Abner Poole, '28, on The Roman House; one by Miss Marie
Riddell, '27, on Greek Coinage, also one by Miss Jean Tolmie on Greek
Pottery. In addition, Dr. Todd has consented to give what promises to be
perhaps the most notable feature of the program, an illustrated lecture on
Greek Sculpture. Plans are under way for the presentation at the last meet'
ing of scenes from Terence's Latin comedy, "The Phormio." It is hoped that
this will be the crowning achievement of a completely successful year. The
Club feels that it cannot express too high a regard for the assistance
the Department of Classics has always accorded its projects; in particular
it is indebted to Prof. Logan for continued kindly assistance and example.

French Literary and Dramatic Society
T^HE number of students interested in French had increased to such
*• a degree that at the beginning of the year it was found advisable
to add a third "circle"'to the French Literary and Dramatic Society.
Under the name "L'Alouette," this junior club was successful in upholding
the standard • set by the two older clubs,- "La Canadienne" and
"La Causerie." '■■'- >
Through the capable direction and untiring efforts of the Honorary
Presidents, Miss Greig, Mr. Delevault and Dr. Clarke, assisted heartily
by all members, the clubs enjoyed an interesting year. Although their
activities Varied, nevertheless the members were all united in their object—
the improvement of their French conversation. At the meetings which
were held at the homes of different members, the programmes, consisting
of debates, games, songs and sketches, proved extremely valuable to the
French students. In January a joint soiree was held in Killarney Hall,
under the kind patronage of Miss Greig.
Once again the Society, because of the interest in French dramatics,
undertook the presentation of two plays, "La Pacha" and "Le Pathelin."
These, thanks to the interest and close supervision of Mr. Delevault
and Dr. Clarke, proved a source of great-benefit and pleasure.
The following composed the executive: La Canadienne—Claire
McQuarrie, Edith Dwinnell, -Margaret MacDonald, Ashley Boyden.
La Causerie—Mildred Campbell, Charles Mclntyre, Mary Johnson,
Bert Black. L'Alouette- Norah Haddock, Margaret Estey, Margaret
Gammie, Odin Sostad. «
The Studio Club
DEEP within the heart of the student body is a little group of people
who devote themselves exclusively to the study of music for one
evening every three weeks. "Far from the madding crowd" they meet
and discuss music in all its aspects, ancient or modern, English, French-;
or Canadian, folk'songs, and even jazz. Their "studio" is the residence
of one of the members, or, frequently, the home of a professor, kindly
loaned for the occasion.
Here a programme of selected music is enjoyed, piano, violin or
vocal selections being offered with equal readiness and felicity. A paper
follows on such topics as "Modern Canadian Composers," "French
Folk'Songs," "Modern French Composers," etc., followed by general
The very able executive for the last year has been as follows:
Honorary President, Dean Bollert; President, Christy Madsen; Vice'
President, Helen Burton; Secretary'Treasurer, Kathleen McLuckie;
Archivist, Gordon Patten.
As long as there is music there will be a Studio Club; and as long
as there is a Studio Club there will be music.
Society of Thoth
'"PHE beginning of this college year saw the birth of the most weird
-*-  and wonderful organization that has yet invaded this sedate atmos-
phere. This body, the Society of Thoth, is an honorary journalistic society
for the study of the seven lively arts, and to add to the "gaiety of nations."
The venerable founders of this Society were: F. C. Pilkington and
R. T. Elson. A nucleus of the Club was formed with Scribes E. Morrison,
Max. Cameron, W. A. Madeley, and R. A. Pilkington. On October the
15th, 1926, a constitution was drawn up, and application was made to
to the august Literary and Scientific Society for official recognition.
On the same day announcement of the competition for membership
was made in the "Ubyssey." All this caused much excitement and comment
among the students, who labored under the misapprehension that the
Society was a huge practical joke, concocted by the feature staff.
Unfortunately, the application for recognition was rejected by the
Lit. and Scientific. Undaunted by this obstacle in their course, the Society
presented a revised constitution which was accepted on October the
25th, 1926.
The first public demonstration of the activities of the Society of
Thoth was the very spectacular Ballet Egyptienne, which was presented
on home'Coming night. This established the reputation of the Club.
According to its programme the regular meetings for the rest of
the year took the form of lively and interesting discussions on the journal'
is tic aspects of the seven lively arts.
The officers for the year were: Honorary Grand Scribe, Miss Sallee
Murphy; Grand Scribes, F. C. Pilkington, R. T. Elson, P. H. Keeling;
Second Scribe, Miss Phyllis Freeman; Keeper of the Baksheesh, A. W.
Madeley; Scribe of the Papyrus, R. A. Pilkington.
The Students' Christian Fundamentalist Society
THE Students' Christian Fundamentalist Society was formed early last
fall. The meetings are held every Thursday noon and are open to all
students. Each meeting is opened by a short invocatory prayer, which is
followed by the reading of a portion of the Scriptures.
The aims of the Society have been to promote a deeper fellowship
and a closer cooperation in Christian service among believers and to
seek the salvation of others by proclamation of the gospel.
Once every month a prominent minister has been invited to speak
on subjects pertinent to Christian problems of today. In the fall term
the Christian Fundamentals were studied; in the spring term discussions
on the parables have been given by different members of the Society.
The executive for this year has been: President, J. D. Duncan;
Vice-President, Fred St. Denis; Secretary, Esther Denman. From its
organization a keen interest has been taken in the Society and in every
respect a very successful year has been enjoyed.
The Student Christian Movement
THE session has been lively and profitable. With Honorary President
H. T. Logan and President Evan Fullerton and other enthusiasts
in the lead, the Movement has certainly moved. The presence of
Gertrude Rutherford, National Secretary, gave especial interest to the
first weekend retreat held at West Bay. Ideas flowed freely.
On the campus, discussion groups have been very interested in
the Chinese and kindred Pacific problems. Thanks to Beverley Oaten,
Prof. Soward, Margaret Gordon and the rest for these. Every Tuesday
noon the bunch has rallied to Ag. 100 for the weekly speech, and other
noons have seen "birds of a feather" flocking to Aud. 312 to talk of this
and that—of religion, feminism, pacifism and class parties.
This session's "something new"—the Saturday nights! Vic. started
'em, which explains the charm. Ask the man who knows 'em. But biggest
of all was the National Student Conference at Macdonald College,
Quebec. Margaretta Underhill, Bessie Hurst, Ab. Whiteley and Evan
Fullerton attended from U.B.C. and brought back news of great times—
radicalism rampant, institutions badly buffeted, but a constructive idealism
overtopping all. Never was such a fellowship of all'Canadian students.
S.C.M. has been less formal and more vital than ever.
The Mathematics Club
rpHE past year was one of the most successful in the history of the
-*• Mathematics Club, there being a larger turnout of members to the
meetings than ever before. Four meetings were held in the fall term,
and five have been arranged for this term, two of which have been held
at the time of writing. Every paper given has proved of great interest
to the mathematicians, and all have served their purpose in introducing
to the members various investigations which have been carried on in
fields of mathematics other than those treated in the curriculum.
Two of the fall papers were given by members of the Faculty, Dr.
Nowlan giving a very interesting paper on his own research work.
"Representations of integers by n-ary p'ic forms," and Mr. Gage giving
an introduction to the subject of "Nomography." The other two papers
were on "Diophantive Analysis," and "Calculating Machines," given
by Mr. Gordon Patten, Arts '27, and Mr. Keeling, Arts '28, respectively.
The speakers of this term to date have been Mr. Preston Mellish on
"Einstein's Theory of Relativity," and Mr. George Stocks on "Non'
Euclidean Geometry." Papers have yet to be given by Mr. Harold Smith
on "Science of Mechanics" and by Mr. Les. Howlett on "Bohr's Atom."
The executive was as follows: Honorary President, Dr. Buchanan;
Honorary Vice'President, Mr. Richardson; President, Mr. H. Smith;
Vice'President, Mr. George Stocks; Secretary, Miss L. Coade.
The Historical Society
rPHE Historical Society left the beaten path in several respects this
■*- year. In the first place, it held seven meetings instead of the usual
six. Secondly, in place of a separate topic for discussion at each meeting
two subjects only were selected, one for the fall, the other for the spring
The fall term was devoted to the general topic, "History." The
first meeting was devoted to "The New Social Sciences and History,"
the second to "The Natural Sciences and History," and the last to the
eternal question, "Is History an Art or a Science?" Apparently few of
those present succeeded in making up their minds on the subjects; but
the papers read produced that rare and beautiful thing, a lively discussion.
"Education" was the general topic for the spring term, and was discussed
under the headings, "Greek Education," "Mediaeval Education" and
"Modern Education." Dr. Sage, Mr. Soward and Dr. Keenleyside will
speak on "Post Graduate Studies Men and Universities" at the last
meeting for the year.
Dr. Keenleyside has proved himself to be an invaluable Honorary
President, always ready and willing to give advice, assistance and en'
couragement. The officers for 1926-1927 were: Honorary President,
Dr. Keenleyside; President, Kaye Lamb; Vice-President, Muriel Wagen-
hauser; Secretary-Treasurer, Leslie Brown.
The Students' International Club
AT the beginning of the year, a small group of interested people
descended upon the remains of the Students' International Club,
and after much scientific research it was discovered that life was not
entirely extinct in the aforementioned body,
The old personality was found to have become outworn, and in
order to remould the Club, the energies of the small group were directed to the making of a suitable constitution.
Chief among the qualities of this Club are its all-inclusive nature
and its variety of activities. No one who has an interest in the "world
of other things" is excluded, and no one who likes color and life will
be disappointed in this organization. Its plans are not limited to learned
lectures, although these are also a feature of the Club, but are extended
to social study which will take a highly colorful nature—trips to Chinese
theatres, luncheons with out-of-the-ordinary people, glimpses into the
life of "the stranger within our gates"—a veritable pageant of experiences!
The group to whom credit is due for the untiring energy expended
on the resuscitation of the Club include: Honorary President, Dr. N.
Keenleyside; Retired President, Leja Hundal; Acting President, Milla
Alihan; Secretary Treasurer, J. M. Jacob; Convenors of Committees:
Literary, Bessie Hurst; Social, Margaret Gordon; Meetings, Maurice
The Annual Report of the Agriculture
Discussion Club
THE Aggie Discussion Club is a debating club affiliated with the
Literary and Scientific Society. Our chief aim is to eliminate that
timid little man who sits at the back of a farmers' meeting, squirming and
perspiring as the discussion progresses without him. Impromptu speeches
and mock trials furnish amusement, while inter-class debates within the
faculty and an annual oratorical contest for Aggies offer opportunities
for practice in public speaking.
During the 1925-26 session, Agriculture '27 was very successful in
the verbal warfare of the Club; the class as a whole won the Aggie
Debating Cup, and Jack Berry secured the oratorical contest medal.
This year there has been a regrettable apathy, the students gathering
but twice during the first term. However, the executive has mapped
out an ambitious program for the latter part of the session. The interclass debates that will take place will be improved by inviting all members
to a free discussion of the debated topic after the usual forensic engagement, and the oratorical contest will be replaced by a public speaking
contest on the ground that the latter method of address will be of more
use to graduates than pure eloquence.
The present executive of the Discussion Club is comprised of:
Hon. Pres., Prof. Moe; President, Herb. Ross; Vice-Pres., Roger Odium;
Sec.-Treas., Lindsay Black; Class Representatives, Mr. Aspinall, Bill
Brown, Lester Mallory.
Biology Discussion Club
BY giving its members an opportunity to discuss freely the most modern
and widely known problems of biological research, the Biological
Discussion Club furnishes an interesting as well as instructive supplement
to the regular Biology courses. This year the program has been somewhat
more varied than in the past. Before Christmas papers were read on the
following topics: "Life of Pasteur," by F. Wilson and H. Mathews;
"Orchid Hunting," by John Stanley; "The Botanical Conference," by
Prof. Davidson; and "Funkholes," by Prof. Spencer. During the second
term the executive planned a series of papers relating to Applied Eugenics.
These dealt with such subjects as "Hen. No. 6," "Cattle," "The Breeding
of Wheat", and the "Race Movement of Man." In addition to these
two illustrated lectures were delivered, one by Dr. Fraser on "Japan,"
and the other by Dr. Williamson on "An Investigation of B.C. Coast
The executive for 1926-27 has been: Honorary President, Dr. Fraser;
President, Digby Leigh; Vice-President, Gertrude Dowsley; and Secretary-
Treasurer, L. Mallory.

The Engineering Discussion Club
THE Club has been quite successful during the past year. A larger
number of prominent engineers have addressed the Club than in past
years. Their subjects were of unusual interest to the students, being
engineering topics treated in an untechnical manner. Numerous students
of all faculties have taken advantage of these lectures. These speakers
were alternated with student speakers from Applied Science, who dealt
with their experience in various engineering lines.
Among outside speakers were Mr. E. A. Wheatly, Mr. C. E. Blee,
and Major McLaren, who spoke on "The Engineering Profession,"
"The Bridge River Development," and "Aviation," respectively Major
Swan, consulting engineer, will deliver an address on the construction
of the "Grouse Mountain Highway" on Feb 22, illustrated with motion
pictures. Slides shown at various meetings were ably handled by Mr.
Bob Morrison, Sc. '29.
The officers for the year were: Mr. Ben. Farrar, President; Mr.
John H. Legg, Secretary'Treasurer; Mr. H. Blackett, Publicity Manager.
The Chemistry Society
THE Chemistry Society got away to a good start this session by obtaining
Dr. J. Allen Harris as its first speaker. Dr. Harris, in speaking to a
second meeting of the Society, outlined in a very interesting manner
the experimental work which led to his spectacular discovery of Element 61.
In pursuance of the existing policy of the Society, alternate open and
closed meetings were held. At the open meetings, held at the University,
subjects of general interest were discussed, while at the closed meetings
papers were given on subjects of particular concern to advanced Chemistry
students. In this way it was hoped to foster a general interest in the
subject and at the same time to acquire a knowledge of the more abstruse
Five open and the same number of closed meetings are included in
this year's activities. We have already heard from Dr. R. H. Clark on
"Cellulose Industry," Dr. E. H. Archibald on "Potash," and Dr. M. J.
Marshall on "Chemistry in Radio" at the open meetings. At the closed
meetings Mr. H. H. Grantham spoke on "Some Aspects of Bic
Chemistry," Mr. P. W. Selwood on "Binary Mixtures," and Mr. H. L.
Streight on "Polarity of the Halogens." Before the end of the term we expect
to hear from Mr. F. Johnston, Dr. W. F. Seyer and Mr. E. H. Nunn.
The executive this year consisted of Mr. E. H. Nunn, President;
Mr. H. H. Grantham, 1st Vice'President; Miss G. Dowsley, 2nd Vice'
President; and Mr. H. L. Streight, Secretary'Treasurer.

T\ rlTH a view to fostering supplementary activities of general agri'
* ▼ cultural subjects, the Livestock Club, this year, was successful
in its aim. The trip to Portland, where eleven students of U.B.C. partici'
pated in international intercollegiate judging, was the outstanding feature
of the Club's work. Of these eleven students the three that comprised
the dairy products team were most successful. In competition with
students from Idaho, Washington, Montana and Oregon, they took
first honors, and Miss Milne was palced first over all competitors. The
Livestock banquet, Agassiz judging competition, and talks by Prof.
Brandt of the Oregon Agricultural College, Mr. Mackenzie, B.C. Grazing
Commissioner, Dr. Jervis of the U.B.C. staff, and Dr. Creelman, Past
President of the Guelph Agriculture College, were outstanding features
of the spring term.
The executive comprised: Honorary President, Prof. H. M. King,
Honorary Vice'President, Mr. R. P. McLennan; Honorary Vice'President,
Mr. B. Gross; President, Syd. Bowman; Vice'President, Gab. Luyat;
Secretary'Treasurer, Joe Ink.
The Players' Club
HTHE Players' Club this year lived up to its reputation for excellence,
■*■ due, no doubt, to the capabilities of the Advisory Board—Professor
F. G. C. Wood, Miss Josephine Battle and Dr. Walker—and of the
successful energies of the executive—Avis Pumphrey, President; Leslie
Howlett, Vice'President; Phil. Elliott, Treasurer; ^ Gwen J Musgrave,
Secretary; and a committee composed of Bert Bailey, Annie Taylor and
Jack Nash.
A noteworthy event in Club annals was the substitution for the
veteran "Twelve Pound Look" of a passage from the "School for Scandal,"
as a try-out piece for Club membership. The usual mob contested for
the vacancies, but the few chosen have displayed exceptional talent
throughout the year. Soon after the "try-outs" the new members were
rewarded for their labors by being entertained at the annual reception,
when "Players" new, old, and very old, frolicked in a delightful dance.
Margaret Craig, who nobly lent her home for the event deserves a large
share of credit for its success.
The choice of Christmas plays this year met with universal approval
—more or less, that is. For the third time during the years that it has
been offered, the Club prize for an original one'act play was awarded.
"The Usual Thing," by Kaye Lamb, Arts '27, demonstrated in a delightful
manner the difficult art of proposing. The able cast consisted of Bessie
Hurst, Bill Buckingham, Alfreda Thompson, Bill Masterson, Norman
Last year's precedent was followed by opening the programme
with a miracle play. "At the Gate Beautiful," by Harry Silvernall Mason,
was most artistically staged and costumed and well acted by Sidney Risk,
Dorothy Pound, Alice White, and J. M. Jacobs, supported by Jack
Shakespeare, David Brock and John Hulbert.
The melodrama of the evening was Austin Strong's "Drums of Oude."
To the apprehensive accompaniment of an East Indian tom'tom, Hope
Leeming and George Knox rose to heights of dramatic intensity. They
were well sustained by Jack Nash, John Hulbert, Gerald Stevens, Alex
Miller and Donald Todd. Special credit is due John Hulbert, who ably
substituted—at very short notice—in the part of Lieutenant Hartley,
for Jack Nash, who was unable to play on the first and third evenings.
Completing a well-proportioned programme was a screaming farce,
"The Man Who Died at Twelve O'clock," by Paul Green. The actors,
Madge Rankin, Les. Howlett and Bert Bailey, sacrificed beauty for art
and completely transformed themselves into three superstitious Carolina
After prolonged deliberation, the Spring Play was chosen. "The
Romantic Young Lady," a Spanish comedy by G. Martinez Sierra,
although highly praised in London, New York and Madrid, where it ran
for some time, had not previously been produced in Canada.

The Musical Society
WITH the success of last year's Annual Concert behind it, the Musical
Society was again launched early in the fall term upon a programme
for the year which taxed to its utmost the ability and energy of its members,
a large percentage of whom were new.
The Society was very fortunate in being able again to secure Mr. C.
Haydn Williams as conductor. His unfailing tact and patience and ever-
ready sense of humor made the many three or four hour rehearsals really
With the ambitious programme planned for the spring ahead, it
was decided to omit the usual Christmas concert. However, the Society
offered its contribution to help make Theatre Night of the Alumni Reunion
a success, the whole Society taking part in "Swing Along" and "The
Dixie Kid" and the orchestra displaying its abilities in "Wee MacGregor,"
a Highland patrol. Solo numbers by Miss Kathleen Baird and Mr.
Christie Madsen were also much appreciated.
This year the spring concert was given on two nights, February
the 25th and 26th. Beginning with the "College Overture," a collection
of well known college songs compiled by the President, Miss Ida Kerr,
it included choral numbers, operatic scenes and orchestral numbers.
The Glee Club, accompanied by the orchestra, did excellent work in
"Invictus," "The Kerry Dance," "Land Sighting" and "Land of Hope
and Glory." In a woodland setting of rocks, trees and waterfalls, the
ladies' sections of the chorus presented a group of American Indian songs
by Cadman, with solos by Miss Vivienne Hudson and Miss Jean Wood-
row. Selections from "II Trovatore" included the ever popular "Anvil
Chorus," "Stride la Vampa," sung by Miss Norah Haddock, and the
duet "Home to Our Mountains" well rendered by Miss N. Haddock
and Mr. J. W. Plommer. Miss Kathleen Baird and Miss T. Negora
delighted the audience with the aria "One Fine Day" from Puccini's
"Madame Butterfly."
The work of the orchestra showed considerable advance from last
year, even their lighter numbers being of unusual merit. Orth's descriptive
novelty, "In a Clock Store," "Songs from England" and "Valse Triste"
were particularly pleasing. The solo work of Miss Frances McDonald,
pianist, Mr. Leslie Brooks, violinist, and Mr. Harold King, trumpeter,
was decidedly above the average.
Nor has the social side of life been entirely neglected. On January
14th, a party voted by all as the "best yet" was held at the home of
Miss Lucy Ross, and on February the 26th, after the concert, Dr. and
Mrs. MacDonald entertained the Society at a most delightful reception
at their home.
To single out any individual for special commendation would be
impossible; but each member of the executive has handled his or her
task with splendid efficiency. The executive for the year 1926 and '27
was as follows: Honorary President, Dr. W. L. MacDonald; President,
Ida M. Kerr, Arts '27; Vice-President, Evan Fullerton, Arts '27; Secretary,
Lucy K. Ross, Arts '28; Treasurer, J. W. Plommer, Arts '29; Women's
Rep., Jean Woodrow; Grad. Men's Rep., Christie Madsen, Sc. '29;
Orchestra Rep., Cecil Thorpe, Arts '29; Costume Convenor, Vivienne
Hudson, Arts '28; Publicity, Florence Sturdy, Arts '29; Stage Manager,
Wilbur Sparks, Science '29.
The Players' Club
(Continued from Page Eighty-five)
Worthy of note is the fact that, with the exception of Honor Kidd,
the redoubtable Mrs. Pearse, of Pygmalion fame, the cast was formed
wholly of members new to Spring Plays. Dorothy Pound, a Freshette,
finally achieved the part of Rosario, the "Romantic Young Lady," into
whose life there enters one night—by means of an open window—the
hero (Bush Gibbs), a successful, but disillusioned, writer of romances.
Her grandmother, an adorable old lady, wise in the ways of men, was
played by Alice White, and her querulous and exacting old servant by
Honor Kidd.
Madge Rankin was chosen for the part of a vivacious young stenographer, and Bill Masterson her ancient and amorous admirer. Milla
Alihan, as the vivid Spanish dancer, is successful in raising a storm of
jealousy in Rosario's heart; but all ends happily, as such a play should.
The three lively brothers were played by Jack Nash, David Brock and
Bill Buckingham, while Norman Clark took the part of butler.
On account of the exceptional demand for seats of last spring's
production, it was decided to give four performances in Vancouver this
year, on March the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th. On the 24th, the play was
presented at Nanaimo. As usual, the cast will go on tour in May, visiting
a large number of towns throughout the province, which seems to be
sown with good friends of the Players' Club.
Intercollegiate Debates
THIS year the University has established forensic relations with two
new institutions, namely the Universities of Manitoba and Idaho.
For the first time in a great many years it has debated against the University
of Washington. It has become a member of the Western Universities
Debating League, an all-Canadian organization.
On November the eleventh, the first intercollegiate debate of the
year was held against the University of Idaho. The subject of this debate
was, "Resolved that national Prohibition is in the best interests of the
Canadian people." It was a dual affair, Messrs. D. Telford and W. Master-
son being on the away team, and Messrs. A. Whitely and D. Murphy
(the first of the Murphy twins) representing U.B.C. at home. The home
team so cleverly substantiated the resolution that they were victorious
by a unanimous decision. The away team demonstrated the absolute
fallacy of the resolution and were also successful by a two to one vote.
Both teams were congratulated on their successful opening of the debating
season in the University.

For the first time in history, the University of B.C. has become
a member of the Western Universities Debating League. This league
consists of the Universities of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia. The University of Saskatchewan was this year the
successful competitor for the "McGowan Cup" which is offered for
yearly contest to the members of the League.
The second intercollegiate debate of the session was held on January
the twenty-first in the University Auditorium. This was the second
time that U.B.C. has partaken in a debate in the Western Universities
League. The U.B.C. home team consisted of Messrs. P. Murphy (the
other of the Murphy twins) and R. E. M. Yerburgh. The Manitoba
team, Messrs. Ison and West, was one of the strongest teams ever sent
against this university. The subject, "Resolved that all restrictions on
voting in Canada based on race or color should be removed," was upheld
by U.B.C. The subject was dealt with very ably by both teams; but the
really great forensic ability of Mr. Yerburgh and Mr. Murphy's happy
knack of "sticking to the point" won a two to one decision for U.B.C.
The away team, consisting of two battle-scarred veterans of former
debates, Messrs. Leslie Brown and Bert Bailey, were less successful
and went down to defeat before the University of Saskatchewan on the
negative side of the same question.
The University of Saskatchewan was this year the successful competitor for the "McGowan Cup," which is offered for yearly contest
to the members of the League.
On February the twenty-second, Messrs. Norman Brown and
David Steele met the University of Washington in debate at Seattle.
The subject of this debate was, "Resolved that political democracy is
a failure." The U.B.C. team upheld the affirmative of the resolution.
On February the twenty-fourth, Messrs. V. R. Hill and G. J.
Rowland represented U.B.C. on the negative side of the same question
against the same university, the debate being held in King Edward High
School Auditorium    .
Both debates were of primary importance, in that it was the first
time that U.B.C. has ever taken part in a debate wherein the legalistic
custom of cross-examination has taken place. Messrs. Brown and Hill
proved very good cross-examiners while Messrs. Steele and Rowland
answered so intelligently that they would have destroyed the nerve
of any lawyer.
It is our regret that both affairs were no-decision contests, for we
feel sure that U.B.C. could have notched another victory in the debating
At the time of going to press, one of the biggest intercollegiate
debates of the year is yet to be held. Messrs. Lionel Laing and Jim O'Hagan

of the resolution. Our best wishes go with the team.
This year, for the second time, Varsity took part in a dual women's
debate with the College of Puget Sound. Last year U.B.C. won both
contests, but the situation was reversed this spring, when the Varsity
teams lost both the home and away debates.
The away team, Misses Jean Tolmie and Alice Weaver, travelled
to Tacoma and debated on March 7th. The home team, Misses Kathleen
Baird and Margaret O'Neill, entertained the visiting C.P.S. team on the
same night, and debated the same question, "Resolved that Mussolini
has evolved the best form of government in Continental Europe today."
The U.B.C. teams outclassed their opponents in rebuttal, being more
fluent in extempore oratory, but C.P.S. women won the contests on their
more careful preparation of the subject, and their more masterly command
of their addresses.

The staff of the- "Totem" has been made up of Jean Tolmie, Mary
Watts and Margaret Grant. Jean, with her two assistants, has added
a worthy figure to the tribal post of the University. The work is not
easy, for people display a great antipathy to being photographed and
procrastinate, with the written matter, after the manner of the proverbial
Portuguese; nevertheless, gentle persuasion has availed and the work,
now speaking for itself, requires no further eulogy.
The Rugby Club
1927 will rank with 1920 as an epic year for University rugby. In 1920
the University first sprung into the limelight of the Coast sporting
world when the rugby teams administered a 12-0 defeat to the crack
Stanford team, 1920 Olympic Games Champions. The following three
years the team won the McKechnie Cup, emblematic of the provincial
senior rugby championship. There then followed one of those periodic
slumps which affect all branches of college athletics. During this two-
year depression the McKechnie Cup and the World Cup, emblems of
the Pacific intercollegiate rugby championship, were lost. On Boxing
Day, 1926, the team proved the slump to be a thing of the past when
they defeated a fast Stanford team 6-3 to regain the World trophy. On
February 2, 1927, the same team played the touring New Zealand Maoris,
world famed as one of the finest football teams of the day, and held them
to a 12-3 score. This is the outstanding event in University athletics
and has brought Varsity international athletic prominence for the first
time. Two weeks later Varsity evened the McKechnie Cup series by
defeating Vancouver 12-8 with a whirlwind finish. In the playoff the
following week the team tore through the powerful Vancouver machine
for an 11-0 victory, bringing the provincial championship back to Varsity
after a three year absence.
At the beginning of the season, rugby prospects seemed most dismal.
While seventy men turned out to the first practice, only four letter men
had returned. City league matches were to be played within a week,
while the first McKechnie Cup tilt against Vancouver was a bare month
away. The coaches were both new men, rather uncertain of their ground
at first. Yet this team, which was defeated 31-6 by Vancouver at the
beginning of the season, gave the most brilliant display of football to
be seen in Vancouver when they played the Maoris four months later.
Due to the lack of players with senior experience, only one team was
entered in the city union instead of the customary two. This is one
move which the Rugby Club has regretted all season, for within a month
enough players had proven to be of senior calibre to compose three teams.
The usual intermediate and Freshmen teams were entered in the intermediate division. It being the policy of the Club to regard city matches
only as preparation for the provincial series, little emphasis was placed
on winning the Miller Cup. The Tisdall Cup was relinquished without
a defense for similar reasons, the players preferring to concentrate on the
big games.

The first McKechnie game found a light, inexperienced Varsity
squad opposing the heavy Vancouver teams. Most of the Varsity players
were making their debut in big-time football, and consequently the
experience of the Vancouver squad was the telling factor, the final score
being 31-6 in the city's favor. The game was remarkable in that the
first big Varsity crowd in three years witnessed the contest, 960 students
in all.
One month later a drastically rearranged and greatly improved
Varsity squad played the second game of the series against Victoria.
Despite the fact that the game was played the week-end before examinations, over five hundred hardy students cheered Varsity to their first
impressive victory of the season, the final score being 21-0. The heavy
Island team had slight advantage early in the game, but the second half
saw Varsity in entire control.
The next big game was aginst Stanford on Boxing Day. In preparation
for this tussle a rigid training schedule was followed throughout the
examination period, it being the fine physical condition of Varsity which
ultimately triumphed in a bitterly contested battle. The first half ended
3-0 in favor of the Cardinals, de Groat kicking a penalty goal. The dogged
defense of the Varsity backfield repulsed Stanford innumerable times
early in the game, when the superior weight and speed of the Cardinals
were of decided advantage. Half way through the second period Varsity
evened the score on a forward rush. The far-famed Crimsons' stonewall
defense proved almost invulnerable until the last moments of the game.
Then a cyclonic fighting finish, feature play of the old wonder team,
crashed through the Cardinal line a minute before time, Wells smashing
through for the winning points.
Despite their decisive victory over Victoria in the first game, the
team held daily practices during the Christmas vacation, for Victoria
are a notoriously hard team to beat on their home ground. The Islanders
certainly lived up to expectations, for the most strenuous engagement
• of the season ensued before Varsity emerged victorious 9-3. At half time
Varsity led 3-0, but Victoria evened the score early in the second period.
Varsity soon again assumed the lead, and to prove that the traditional
whirlwind fighting finish was now a permanent part of their repertoire,
the blue and gold forwards drove across for a final score in the final minute.
The outstanding event of the year was the game against the New
Zealand Maoris. Probably no team in this University ever engaged in
so lengthy and strenuous a training program as was followed by the team
in preparation for this tussle. After six weeks of outdoor practising in
snow and slush on a hard frozen field and gymnasium work at night, the
players were ready to meet the Maoris. The New Zealanders came
with a wonderful record of victories over leading European teams and
podenetheir Canadian program by defeating Vancouver 33-6 in a clever

exhibition of football. Of the Varsity game no student needs to be reminded. In the first half the superior strategy of the Maoris gave them a
9-0 lead, increasing their score to 12-0 early in the second period. The
superb condition of our team then began to tell, the rest of the game
being mainly Varsity offensive resulting in one score. The final score,
12-3, is exactly the same score by which the Maoris beat France's international team, the Maori being the same in both cases, with one exception.
This conclusively shows that Varsity has at last produced a team of
international calibre.
The return game against Vancouver provided a thrilling struggle.
Varsity opened the scoring and held the lead for the duration of the half.
Early in the second stanza, Vancouver tied the score, but Varsity immediately retaliated to again gain the lead. Vancouver soon scored a
try, which was converted, giving them an 8-6 advantage. The rep. team
then settled down to a tight defensive game, repulsing all Varsity attacks.
Ten minutes from time the team started the tornado finish which characterized the Victoria, Stanford and Maori games, thrusting Vancouver
back to the line. Seven minutes from time Eaton plunged through for his
third score, giving Varsity a 9-8 lead and sending nine hundred Varsity
supporters delirious with joy. Varsity swept the Rep. squad backwards
for another try in the last second of the game to bring the final score 12-8.
The feature of this game was the continuous and spontaneous cheering
of the Varsity crowd, which played no small part in the inspired last
minute victory.
This victory tied the series and necessitated a playoff the following
Saturday. Injuries had dealt heavily with the Varsity team, while the
Vancouver squad was reported to be the strongest in years. Yet from
the first blast of the whistle there was no doubt as to Varsity's superiority.
The first half ended 3-0 in our favor, while two more scores were made
in the second half to bring the final tally to 11-0. Wild enthusiasm raged
with the student crowd when the game was won and the McKechnie
Cup had returned after a three year wandering. After carrying the team
from the field the crowd staged the first downtown college parade seen
for years, finishing the day with a night of celebration. Student reaction
leaves no doubt that this victory was by far the crowning achievement
of recent years.
The credit for the development of the Varsity squad from the
green, loose-playing team of the early season to the smoothly co-ordinating
defensive machine of midseason and thence to the smashing offensive
of the superb victorious aggregation which swept to triumph over the
powerful Vancouver machine, should be given to three men, Jack Tyrwhitt
and Stan.  Farquharson,  coaches,  and Bert  Tupper,  football captain.

The fine physical condition of the players resulting in all the last minute
victories, the fraternal team spirit built up, resulting in the closely coordinating teamwork necessary for solid defense and attack, and the
knowledge of rugby strategy are all directly attributable to these men.
In conclusion, some mention must be made of the wonderful student
support accorded the team. 1210 students saw the Maori game, while
over nine hundred saw each of the Vancouver tussels, their vociferous
support being a decided asset to the men on the field. Our last words will
be of the Maoris, the finest band of sportsmen who ever visited this city.
The ten day sojourn of these compatriots from down under will remain
indelibly stamped in the memory of every rugby player as the most
enjoyable and hilarious period in their college careers. To the Maoris-
Kia Orra!
The Canadian Rugby Club
HANDICAPPED by inexperience and the difficulty of arranging the
long practices which the game demands of players, the Canadian
Rugby Club has, nevertheless, had a very gratifying season. To be sure,
the Senior team entered in the "Big Three" league (Victoria, Vancouver
and Varsity) won none of their three games. However, they were playing
against the pick of the experienced Clubs, with several well known
players from big Eastern colleges on the lineups, and they certainly
put  up a strong fight against very formidable opposition.
This spring a strong team has been entered in the City Intermediate
League. The corresponding team won the Junior Provincial Championship
last spring. The opposition in the Intermediate League is much stiffer,
but at the time of writing Varsity is at the top of the league, having
won all her games by decisive scores. Both squads practice daily during
the season, getting up in the cold, grey dawn for a practice before lectures,
and have thus the right to be called the hardest working team in U.B.C.
The future of the Club is rosy indeed. Many of this year's Senior
team will be back next fall, and these, with the new players now being
trained in the Intermediate team, should form the nucleus of a strong
squad to represent Varsity in the season of 1927.

The First Soccer Team
UNDER the able guidance of our President, Mr. Stan. Gale, the
Soccer Club has had a very successful year. Although we haven't
won many league games so far, we have great hopes of winning
the Mainland Cup again this year. So far we have had one very enjoyable
trip to the Island, when we played Victoria, and we have three more
trips to take. There is more new material on the team this year than
ever before—Evans, Berto, Warden and Shields having played on the
second team last year; while Gaudin, Wright, Robertson and Anderson
were moved up during this season. The old standbys playing for the
team are Baker, Ledingham, Phillips and Cruter. Waddington, who plays
a brilliant game at outside left was an acquisition from Victoria College
this year.
Elmer Anderson: Goalkeeper extraordinary. He is a fit successor
to the great Mosher. He started the season with the second team, but was
moved up.
Eb. Crute: Eb. is a life member of the Club and has been playing
with us ever since it was started. He will probably continue to play with
us forever. His position is right full back.
Gordon Shields: The red-headed whiz. Gordie has yet to turn in
a poor game with this Club. He is an ideal fullback and paired with Eb.
they make a hard combination to beat.
George Ledingham. Left halfback. He is always on the job and
seems to have the miraculous faulty of running and working for an
hour and a half. This is his fourth year with the Club.
Bill Phillips: Good old Bill! He loves a good muddy field. The boys
say he never washes his shorts, but Bill declares he does. It doesn't make
much difference, however, because they are as dirty as ever after he
gets through playing one game.
Frank Robertson: Nickname, "Robbie." Plays right halfback and
turns in a consistently good game. Robbie comes from the North Shore,
where they make a business of turning out good soccer players.
Tommy Warden: Outside right. He has a beautiful cross. We
prophesy a great future for him in the game.
Verne Wright: Outside right. He is a recent recruit from the second
team and is making good. He has all the necessary attributes of a good
soccer player.
Mel. Gaudin: Inside right. Another recruit from the second team.
He is always on the ball and has the faculty of being in the right position
at the right time.
Lorimer Baker: Centre forward. Lorrie always has played fullback,
but this season we tried him out at the centre forward position and he
is making good.

THE Second Soccer Team is playing in the Second Division Pacific
Coast League this year instead of the Vancouver and District League
as formerly. At time of writing the team is standing tie with Sapperton
Young Liberals for third place and has good prospects of advancing still
further. Russ. Logie was appointed manager and believes that the team
is one of the best in the league.
A great game was played in Victoria during the invasion, which
was lost by a 2-1 score.
The forwards are light but fast and make a hard combination to
stop. Alan Todd, a natural player, works well with Doug. Partridge,
who is very clear headed, and they make a good pair at outside and inside
left respectively. Mel. Gaudin at centre is the goal-getter and a hard
man to stop. Stan. Duffell and Charlie Wong make a good pair on the
right, and Stan, gives Charlie many fine opportunities.
The half line is well balanced and keeps opponents guessing. Don
Emery watches his man and never lets him get far. Verne Wright, at
centre half, covers a lot of ground and keeps the forwards well up. Dick
Spillsbury, really a forward, but also an excellent half. The fullbacks,
Dave Warden and Dan Allan, are a well balanced pair and are responsible
in no small way for the team's success. George Miller, although not a
regular goal-keeper, plays well in that position. Hugh Grant, a cool headed
individual, is the regular goalie and is showing up very well.

THIS season Varsity again entered a team in each of the four divisions
of the Vancouver and District Basketball League, and while every
team has given a creditable account of itself, the two intermediate
teams have shown to the best advantage, each leading its respective
In spite of the fact that practises had to be held at inconvenient
hours, the boys turned out and drilled faithfully in their endeavor to
put Varsity teams in front.
During the season Varsity teams engaged in several games with
outside teams, the Senior A squad playing home and home games with
Kamloops and University of Washington, while the Senior B men travelled
to Jordan River, Victoria, Penticton and Kelowna. The Intermediate A
team was seen in the Fraser Valley in an exhibition tilt with Sardis.
The executive for the year consisted of Russ. Robinson, President;
Tommy Berto,^Vice-President; Ed. McLean, Secretary-Treasurer. The
untiring efforts of Coach "Dode" Tuck, veteran basketball star, in the
interests of the Senior A team were much appreciated by the Club.

AFTER graduation only1 three letter men of last year were left as
as a nucleus for the ^Senior A basketball squad. The Club was
able to use three of last year's Senior B team, while the Freshman
year contributed two men. We were fortunate enough to secure "Dode"
Tuck as coach. He is too well known in basketball circles throughout
the province to require any further introduction.
Although entered in the Senior A Division of the Vancouver and
Distract League, the team found time to play home and home games with
Kamloops and the University of Washington. The team has done very
well considering the handicap of youth and inexperience. The last two
games in particular have shown that Coach Tuck has developed a fighting

VARSITY'S Senior "B" hoop squad has had a very successful season
and should be given credit for the fine work they have done for
U.B.C. Although starting the season rather poorly, they have staged
a "come-back" and have every chance of adding to our collection of
silverware. In the outside games the team has shown up exceedingly well.
The B's journied to Jordan River during the Victoria invasion and the
Power House boys, who are leading the Victoria Senior A League, had
all they could handle to win by one point, 16-15. The following night
the Varsity stars took the Victoria "All Stars" into camp with ease.
Bill Thomson: (Captain); a good shot and the hardest worker on
the team. Doug. Mclntyre: (Guard); the best prospect on the team;
a good shot and full of fight. Teddy McEwan: Hails from the Royal City
and is of Royal City calibre—'nuff said! Laurie Buckley: (Forward);
joined us from the Rowing Club and is a real find. Harold Straight: (Guard);
a steady defence and scorer. Harold and Doug, work on the Harold Teen
system—two for every basket. Bill Webster: (Guard); Bill was a star
in Kitsilano's team last year and is a real asset. Archie McConnachie:
(Guard); from Prince of Wales and a whale of a player. Ed. McClean:
(Forward); works hard and is a good defense player.

"\ 4"EMBERS of the Intermediate A Basketball Team feel highly satisfied
-J-V-^with the showing made by the team in the past year. Under the
guiding hand of Hugh Grant of the Senior A team, the boys have been
trimming opponents regularly and at the present time look like league
champions. Out of seven games played at the time of writing the A's
have won six, their only setback being administered by the Meriloma crew.
One of the accomplishments the boys are proud of in the past season
is the fact that in a game played against Normal the boys scored 12 baskets
out of 14 shots. Grant has stressed the value of smooth combination and
has drilled his men on the value of shooting from close in.
Johnny Williams was recently elected captain of the team and his
experience and generalship have pushed the lads over the top in many
a hard fought tussle. He has usually been high man in the scoring column,
with Allan Stevenson and Alpin running him a close second.
Grant said after one of the games, "I'm certainly proud of the fellows
for the manner in which they have buckled down in practices. The
results have been evident in all their games."
The forwards are: Williams, Stevenson, Stewart and Mitchell, with
Alpin, Swanson, Gillespie, Copeland and Speck doing guard duty.

VARSITY has every right to be proud of their Intermediate B Basket
ball Team. Getting away to a brilliant start the team has flashed
like a meteor across the local league horizon and, outside of a game
defaulted on account of sickness, they romped along to the head of their
league and have a good chance to hang the provincial title to their list
of triumphs.
Howard Nicholson: Centre; a rangy type of player who has the
natural ability for the pivot position.
Lloyd Williams: Has put the fight into the forward line, and although
having the speed and shooting ability will work better when he developes
his passing game.
Don. Horton: Another forward who teams with Williams admirably
well. Like his team mate he is a good shot and a good judge of floor play.
Bobby Chapman: Has a great future at guard; he has the quick
movements and the fighting spirit of an ideal player in that position.
Howard Gavin: Guard; is a promising player; with a little seasoning
in a minor team he will be ready to break into faster company.

AFTER starting the year under a heavy handicap, owing to the
fact that several members of the executive did not return to Varsity,
the Varsity Men's Grass Hockey Club finally held an organi^tion
meeting and got under way. It was decided to enter one strong team for
the league rather than two weak teams, as was the case last year, and to
enter a second team at Christmas should conditions justify such action
During the fall term several games were played, but our men were greatly
handicapped by the lack of efficient coaching. However, by Christmas
a really efficient team was developed, as was shown by the game in
Victoria, where, though playing two novices, the Varsity held Victoria
to a 4-3 score in a very hard fought game. After Christmas the Club
found there was ample material on hand for a second team, but owing
to difficulties in rearranging the league schedule no regular matches had
been played by this team at the time of going to press. At the beginning
of February, Varsity unexpectedly defeated a team fielded by the
Crusaders, the head of the league, thus getting into the finals for the much
coveted O. B. Allan Cup.
The outlook for next season is exceedingly bright, on the whole,
and it is hoped that those new players who did not participate in many
games this year will make a point of turning out next September, thus
ensuring two strong Varsity teams in the league.

Ice Hockey
VARSITY took a big step this year by entering a team in both the
Intermediate and Junior Leagues. To celebrate this double entry,
Varsity showed a great improvement. The Intermediates won
one game, drew one, and lost one, entitling them to play with the Terminals for second place. This game was unfortunately lost. The Juniors
are tied for second place and have the distinction of winning the first game
Varsity has won in ice hockey for two years.
In the annual invasion at Victoria the team was beaten by the
•Victoria All Stars 5-2. This is not an unusual thing and the game was
even closer than the score indicates.
Mort. Richmond and Jack Parker, both newcomers, are responsible
for a large part of any success the team has had. Mort. is the best goalie
Varsity has ever produced, and Jack easily led the team in getting goals.
The executive consisted of: Gerry Newmarche, President; Gerry
Mathews, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Bob Granger acted as coach and it
was through his assistance that the team showed such marked improvement. He has turned out at all times to help the boys, and we thank him
most sincerely.

The Men's Swimming Club
THE University Men's Swimming Club ends its first year as a minor sport after a
very active season. Its sixty members have had the privilege of using the Chalmers
Church Pool three times a week, and have been ably coached by Norman Cox. In
the Lent Term the coach gave a course to beginners and others wishing to perfect the
crawl stroke.
The Club's activities have included six extra-mural galas and the inter-class swimming.
This was won by the Freshmen, with Arts '29 a close second.
The team this year has included good, all round men, but has, on the whole, been
unsuccessful in winning meets. At the annual Victoria invasion they met defeat at the

hands of the Capitol City's stars, swimming under the colours of the Y.M.C.A. In
January, the Vancouver Amateur Swimming Club took the long end of the score in the
first of the season's city league meets. Just prior to their departure for Banff, the team
made its first victory, defeating the Meraloma Athletic Club by a good margin. At Banff,
although winning first place in the diving, breast stroke and back stroke events, they were
forced to relinquish the coveted Banff Cup to the University of Saskatchewan. At the
time of going to press, the return meets with the VA.S.C. and the Meralomas had not
taken place.
The prospects for next year's team look very bright. Only two of the swimmers
who went to Banff graduate this year, and many promising men have been developed.
The Club looks forward eagerly to the time when the University will have its own
pool, and practices may be held at any convenient time. Great things may then be expected
of the swimmers.
A great loss is sustained this year with the graduation of Dal ton Allan. Although
he is not an active swimmer, he has been President of the Club for the last two sessions,
and has taken a keen interest in its welfare. Due to his efforts, swimming is now a minor
sport. He figured largely in the formation of the Lower Mainland Swimming League,
and the Greater Vancouver City League, and deserves much credit for his part in making
the Banff meet a success.
The Club is greatly indebted to Dr. W. L. MacDonald, its Honorary President,
for his active interest, and to the Women's Swimming Club for the whole-hearted way
in which they have co-operated and helped to make the City League galas a success.

The Rowing Club
M 11! 11II
THIS season marks the beginning of a new epoch in the history of
the University Boat Club, in that it is the first year that the VIII
has dipped its oars outside the waters of Burrard Inlet. This took
place in March, when nine men were sent to Seattle to meet the University
of Washington's first Freshman crew in the first race of what is now
certain to be an annual event.
Situated as it is, the University of British Columbia is in an ideal
position to become one of the foremost rowing colleges on the continent.
The Universities of Washington and California provide intercollegiate
competition, and local races may be fostered with Brenwood College,
Kelowna, Vancouver, and Victoria.
The Club has been unfortunate this year in the amount of equipment
at its disposal. Until now it has had the privilege of using some of the
Vancouver Rowing Club's boats; but this year its fleet has been limited
to its own " Washingtonia" and a "tub" pair belonging to the City Club.
Despite this handicap, however, the membership has numbered about

Track Club
BY far one of the busiest years in Varsity's track history draws to
and end with the 1927 session. Starting early in the fall a few hardy
tracksters commenced training for the Western Intercollegiate Meet.
Mottley, Burgess, Brown and Pottinger came through the eliminations
and represented British Columbia in the finals at Saskatoon. Mottley
proved the lone point gainer, winning the half-mile with a fine performance,
and coming third in the 440. The meet was won by Alberta, and our
track men were much impressed by Saskatchewan's hospitality.
Following the relay, Coach Granger was rapidly shaping a collegiate
squad, and realized his first opportunity for real competition when he
took a team to meet the University of Washington. Stacked up against
the non-letter Varsity men, the B.C. boys trained to the peak and eager
tb go, the final score being 863^ to 463^ in favor of the Americans.
McWilliams provided the thrill of the day when he won the half-mile
by just a few yards with a sensational finish. Selby put himself in the
class of the Northwest's finest milers when he won for B.C. their only
other first place of the meet. Hatfield's jump of 6 feet 10 inches marked
him as one of the record breakers in the coming interclass meet. The
University of Washington's kindness in arranging the meet, and the
order in which it was conducted were greatly appreciated by our track
The next major event was the international meet staged in Vancouver
against the College of Puget Sound. This was Varsity's first home intercollegiate meet, and arrangements are under way, as this is being written,
to make it an outstanding precedent.
To close the season comes our own interclass meet, and from the
performance of several Varsity men to date it will undoubtedly be
remarkable for the number of records that are bound to fall.

twenty men, and two "eights" have turned out regularly, twice a week,
except under extremely inclement conditions of weather. A few new
men have been taught the rudiments of the art, with a view to future crews.
A Development Committee has discussed and looked over sites for
the University's own boat house, as no real progress can possibly be
made until the Club has its own quarters, so placed that crews may
practice five times or more a week. The Club is greatly indebted to Prof.
H. F. G. Letson, its Honorary President, and Prof. H. T. Logan for their
interest in its welfare, and for their work on the Development Committee;
and also to "Bimbo" Sweeney, and Bill Bain, for their work in coaching
and encouraging the crews.

Max. Evans: Inside left. He is a hard worker and is always on the
job. He occasionally makes a mistake, though, and scores a goal.
Guy Waddington: Left wing. Fast and tricky, packs a wicked wallop
in his left foot. He is the terror of opposing goalies.
George Miller: Spare goalkeeper. Although George usually plays
with the second team he is sometimes called on to play for us. He is
sure and can be depended upon.
Russel Kinninmont: Our diminutive trainer. He is so small that
most people mistake him for a mascot. But that doesn't worry Russel,
he rubs the boys down as well as anybody could.

Carment: A Kamloops boy who is in the growing stage, but if
willingness to leam the game means anything he will be a second Al.
Stewart Reid: Utility man, and the real McCoy for a high class
cage artist.
AS we settle down at Point Grey, so will the W.A.A. grow and
become one of the leading organizations of the University. We have
to thank the presidents and the executives of the various clubs
for our advancement. The Basketball Club has put forth some excellent
material this year, the Senior A team being at the top of its league. The
Swimming Club, as usual, has grown larger and it has gained a leading
place among its competitors. This year classes for beginners have been
introduced and they prove to be very attractive. The Gymnasium Club,
as of old, is one of the most well attended and the Badminton Club was
very successful this year, both at home and in the interior.
The Track Club has added a few new events and both it and the
Grass Hockey Club are improving vastly.
One outstanding feature in this year's programme is the organization of a Pep Club, which will add a great deal to the spirit of Varsity.
If this admirable example of sportsmanship is kept up, it will not
be long before intercollegiate sports will be established for the women,
and we may look forward to a very active future.

IN spite of the lack of support accorded them by Varsity students, the
Women's Senior A Basketball Team turned in victory after victory
in the City League. Up to the time of going to press, they are tied for
first place with the Young Liberal Canucks, who were the last year's
provincial champions.
Throughout the season, Varsity played a system of five hand defense.
The tendency to star play and lack of team work, noticeable in the first
few games, was soon overcome, and a smooth working combination
Gay Swencisky, the Captain, has been playing for Varsity for five
years, and is a tower of strength on the defense.
Close guarding and remarkable shooting by Torchy Bailey, and
finished checking by Winona Streight, completed a defense which the
opposing team found hard to penetrate.
Rene Harris, at centre, played a stellar game.
Thelma Mahon's speed and accuracy, when combined with that
of Claire Menton, obtained many a basket for Varsity.
Jean Carlaw's shooting proved the deciding factor in more than
one game.

THE Women's Swimming Club started well with the largest member
ship on record. The classes were well attended and with the number
available it soon became evident that competition for places in the
team would be very keen. With many of those who represented the
Varsity during the previous year still in evidence, prospects for the
season were particularly bright. The able coaching of Mr. Norman Cox
soon produced a team which was ready to participate in the coming
meets. Those representing Varsity were: Nellie Mellish, Mary Carter,
Marjorie Greenwood, Margaret Lamb, Betty Whiteside, Marjorie Kirk,
Jean Snell, Jean Gilley, Lilian MacKensie, Mary Ross.
Owing to the number of beginners it was decided by the executive
(President, Gertrude Dowsley; Vice-President, Mary Carter; Secretary-
Treasurer, Mary Ross) that a special class, exclusively for beginners,
should be held under the supervision of Mr. Cox.
Life saving classes have always held a place in the swimming programme and as usual were included this year; but a decided lack of interest
in these classes was noticeable.
The Club has had a most successful year, due to the untiring efforts
of the Coach, Mr. Cox, and the regularity with which the members of
the team turned out to practise.

LAST fall about twenty Freshettes answered the call for new members,
and, together with the old ones, made the Club considerably larger
than the previous year. Two teams of almost equal merit were fielded.
Jean Petrie, one of our outstanding players, captained "A" team, while
our small but nimble Evelyn Cruise was responsible for "B" team. Dr.
Wyman, in the position of Honorary Captain, gave us many useful
pointers and aided in the selection of the teams.
The majority of our games were played with the city high schools;
but two important games were played with Victoria College. In the
Victoria invasion, Varsity was defeated by a score of three to one. Varsity
retaliated early this spring by defeating Victoria College by one goal.
Next year we hope for a larger membership and a better playing
field for home games. It is probable that a league will be formed in which
Varsity may compete.
The executive was composed of: Honorary President, Mrs. Boving;
President, Beth Pollock; Vice-President, Ruth Wilson; Secretary, Gladys
The University Women's Gym. Club
THE Gymnasium Club, with Lillian Coade as President, and a membership of forty, began its activities again under the able instruction of
Miss Gertrude Moore. The Club met every Thursday afternoon for an
hour, at the Y.W.C.A., where exercises were gone through, sufficiently
varied to suit every taste. Club-swinging, wand exercises, rope-climbing,
folk-dancing, and games proved especially popular with the girls. The
officers for the year were: President, Lillian Coade; Vice-President,
Isobel Ralph; Secretary, Alice White.

rPHE Badminton Club has been guided very successfully this year by

President, M. McFarlane; Vice-President, Diana Porteous; Secretary,
Rob. Noble; Treasurer, Ian Stevenson.
It was found impossible at the beginning of the fall term to form a
league with other city clubs according to the custom of previous years.
Seven matches were played, however, including the Victoria encounter
in connection with the annual Victoria invasion. Varsity won three of
these matches and lost four.
A team was sent to Kelowna in January for the first time in the
history of the Club. It is hoped that this will become an annual event in
future years. The team was composed of Diana Porteous, Arts '29;
Dorothy Pound, Arts '30; Bill Argue, Arts '27; and Ian Stevenson, Arts
'27. Varsity won this match by a score of 9 to 6, Argue's defeat of Hill
and Reed, the pick of interior players, being especially noteworthy.
Owing to awkward playing hours, membership in the Club is not
quite as large as that of last year; but the turnouts have been particularly
enthusiastic and a gratifying fund of new material is being developed.
The first team was considerably weakened at the beginning of the year
by the loss of almost all of last year's players, but practice has made
up for this deficiency.

THE year 1926-27 has been one of much interest for tennis players. The construction
of our own courts, intercollegiate competition, and, above, all a much higher standard
of play, mark a great development in tennis at U.B.C.
At the initial meeting the affairs of the Club were taken over by the new executive
consisting of Mr. H. T. Logan, Honorary President; Ian Stevenson, President; Dorothy
Russell, Vice-President; and Jack Shakespeare, Secretary-Treasurer.
The most important event of the year was a match with the Universities of Alberta
and Saskatchewan, Varsity's first intercollegiate tennis tournament. It was held on indoor
courts at Edmonton and was virtually for the championship of the Western Universities.
Our team made an excellent showing, winning every event except the ladies' doubles,
which went to the University of Saskatchewan. The University was represented by Misses
Hope Leeming and Jeanne Carlaw; Gordon Shields and Harry Seed. The men's and ladies'
singles were won by Gordon Shields and Hope Leeming.
It is to be hoped that this triangular contest will become an annual event and that
the calibre of this year's team will be upheld in future meets. The tournament will very
likely be held in Vancouver this fall.
The annual fall tournament brought forth a record number of entries, there being
sixty in the men's singles alone. In spite of a delay caused by rain, the tournament was
a great success and gave evidence of fine talent.
Gordon Shields was supreme in the men's singles, playing beautiful tennis throughout
the tournament. But his success was not a matter or course while such men as Wally

Badminton Club
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Twenty-six)
The personnel of the first team is as follows: Diana Porteous, Dorothy
Pound, Esther Eddy, Jean Leach, Bill Argue, Ian Stevenson, Jack Shakespeare, Med McFarlane, Rob Noble. Diana Porteous and Dorothy Pound
have been the mainstays among the ladies and should be very useful
next year. Esther Eddy played on the second team last year and has shown
great improvement. Jean Leach looks very promising and should be a
decided asset next year. Bill Argue is the strongest and most experienced
member of the team. His showing at Kelowna speaks for itself. Ian
Stevenson, in spite of lack of experience, has developed into one of the
strongest players in the Club. His hard smash and his ability to cover
the court are two of his strong points. Jack Shakespeare has played on
the first team for three years and can usually be counted on to win the
majority of his matches. Due to his tricky service and his placing, Med.
McFarlane can be depended upon to play a good, steady game at all
times. Rob Noble's strong smash and long reach make him an opponent
to be reckoned with.
In the Open Championships of B.C., which were held in February,
Bill Argue was outstanding. In the men's singles he reached the finals
against Jack Underhill, a former University player, by defeating Reg.
Forsyth and McTaggart Cowan in successive rounds. The University
Open Championships will have strong contenders for the titles in each
of the five events and there should be no lack of interest in the matches,
since this year's entry list is very large.
Tennis Club
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Twenty-Seven)
Mayers, Ian Stevenson and Lorrie Baker were in the running. From the eights to the
finals every match was a headline, Mayers being the last to fall at the hands of the champion.
The fine trophy appearing in the photograph was presented for this event by Henry
Birks, Limited, to record the annual champions, starting with 1925-26, the first year at
Point Grey. The cup now bears the names of Ian Stevenson and Gordon Shields.
Coupled with Jeanne Carlaw and Harry Seed, Shields was also a successful finalist
in the mixed and men's doubles.
In the ladies' singles event, Margie Greig, last year's champion, retained her title
only after a very strenuous match against Hope Leeming. Score: 2-6, 7-5, 6-4. The ladies'
doubles was won by Donalda Strauss and Margie Greig.
Every effort is being made to arrange for competition with the University of Washington this spring. Although no final arrangements have yet been made, the Club expects
to round off the season with a home match about March twenty-sixth, and a return to
be played in Seattle after exams.

The Ballade of the Unreturning Wings
Above the bounty of the Spring's bestowing,
The golden buds the April garden bears,
Above the murmur of the green things growing,
And anthem of each bird that reappears,
There is a never-ending chorus near,
Stilling the tumult of the twitterings
Until it grows Jif^e thunder on our ears—
The whisper of the unreturning wings.
It is the rustle of the red leaves blowing
In empty courts, by unremembered meres;
The murmur of the moonlit waters flowing
From broken fountains over broken tiers;
It is the song of all that summer sears,
And all the hoard of winter harvestings,
An echo of the youth of other years—
The whisper of the unreturning wings.
It shall outline the gleam of April's going,
The withered gold the autumn garden wears;
It shal! outline the reaping and the sowing,
And garnered gleanings of the golden years;
Tea, after we forget the faith and fears,
The jests and jealousies and journeyings,
The silence shall be murmurous with tears  -
The whisper of the unreturning wings.
Youth, pity all upon whose aged ears
The terrible finality of things
Is echoing from all the empty years—
The whisper of the unreturning wings.

Over sea of pinafore blue,

With surf as bright as gold,
I lost my way in the dying day,
With never a star to point the way

For impossible places, too,
Through s\ies the colour of fairy-tale,
Over seas of pinafore blue.
Oh, never I dream Til find you where
The days are as tales untold;

Though the surf be bright as gold!
But ever I sail where ships may go;
Though never there's earthly cure—
In surf that's gold or in tales untold,
For hearts so young that they wont grow old,
Or in purple isles that lure.

HE doesn't speak English," said his son with all the impatience of
the younger generation.
The old man stood like an expressionless statue, gating over the
moonlit water. His eyes were fixed in vacancy on some view of sea or
land that lay beyond our eyes.
Perhaps he was thinking of the days of his youth, days before the
missionary came, and the white man with his smallpox. Perhaps he
remembered the days when the village was three times its present size,
when every night saw a council of elders in some chief's great house, the
old men squatting around the fire in the middle, while the young warriors
stood behind in the shadows and listened. And the old men talked of
old wars and planned new ones.
"Your father's people were great warriors," I said.
"Oh, yes," answered the son; and he told me of the warlike expeditions of the early Haidas, how on a certain day they would make
their start; but first, for good omen, as the medicine-man had said, a
captive maiden was brought, screaming, to the place, and flung into a
hole they had dug. Then, with sticks and spears, they would raise a new
totem pole high in the air, until the sharp butt slid downwards and
crushed the breast of the victim. They would adventure forth across
eighty miles of open sea, forty men in each of the great war canoes, and
make bloody raids on the mainland tribes, capturing much booty and
many slaves. Sometimes, on the homeward journey, the west wind would
catch them, and for hours they strained every nerve and muscle to reach
the shelter of some rocky island, where hungry and cold they would
wait many days and nights for the wind and the sea to go down.
Summer was the happiest time of the year. Then the days were long
and warm, the rivers teemed with fish, and berries and fruit were plentiful
upon the neighboring hills. It was in the summer, too, when his father
had taken his mate, a girl of fourteen, soft-eyed, graceful as a deer in her
movements. The village had feasted for a whole day in their honor.
A dug-out was filled to the brim with red berries, shoved afloat and
given to them to take to their home.
Old days, glorious days!
"Heap skookum when you young man," I said to the old fellow.
He turned his head slowly and looked at me, his seamed and wrinkled
face lighting up in a cheerful but uncomprehending grin.
"Halo kumtux," he answered.
"He doesn't understand English," said his son.

WHERE I had been that night, or what particular inclination had
induced me to walk the four odd miles from the Rue de Petits Champs
to my hotel, I cannot at the present moment recall. It is only of the incident
itself, and of the peculiar effect it had upon me that I have any clear
remembrance. It was one of those situations into which one blunders
so suddenly, and which pass so quickly that one cannot appreciate their
full significance.
My way lay through that part of Paris which the guide-books refer
to as the "Quartier Latin"—a quarter of cheap "pensions" and drab
eating houses, in the middle of which the Pantheon, emblem of a by-gone
Bohemian glory, rears its sorrowful head.
In those days—before it was moved to the Rodin Museum—the
statue, "Le Penseur," was situated on the steps of the building, overlooking the street. I had paused, as I almost invariably did, to contemplate
it for a moment. Whether it was due to the moonlight, or merely to the
mood I was in, I cannot say. But, somehow, it seemed to me that I had
never before appreciated Rodin's achievement—the posture of hopelessness, the great, powerful limbs; the massive body, which, apart from an
unusual length of arm, might vie with that of some Graecian God; the
pitiful, primeval head, and the furrowed face which regarded the flagstones
with a puzzled stare. In the night light the figure seemed almost to live.
A ghost of some dim past crouching in the shadow of the giant dome.
A sudden gust of wind, followed by the rustle of a dried-up leaf
brushing the pavement, brought me back to earth, and I turned to continue
on my way.
Then, for the first time, I became conscious of a faint clicking sound
coming from the foot of the statue—a sound as of tiny ivory balls.
Gradually, as my eyes became accustomed to the darkness at the base,
I became aware of a dark form, almost motionless—apparently of some
animal. Obviously it was not a dog—it was too shapeless for that, too
ungainly. Presently it rose, and moved in my direction.
When it was within a few yards of me I related my mistake. It
was a woman. She was horribly old, so bent that her head seemed to be
on a level with her back-bone; she was dressed in the tatters of Belleville,
and bore upon her shoulders a filthy woollen shawl. I was hardly surprised;
the type is not particularly rare in Paris, where an existence can still be
maintained by the sale of cigarette butts. What did strike me as somewhat
unusual, however, was that one of her shrivelled hands was fingering
a rosary.
Only when she came abreast of a small street lamp—when the light
fell upon a pallid withered face—did I realise that she was quite blind.
Slight as the occurrence was, it worried me; I made a few futile
inquiries, and eventually put it out of my mind.

Then, one day, by accident, I stumbled upon the key to the mystery.
I found in an old guide book (even at that time practically out of print)
a statement to the effect that once, in the days when the Pantheon was
a consecrated building, there had stood, quite close to the place where
I had been accustomed to contemplate Rodin's statue, an old wooden
figure of the Madonna.

who have their B.A. degrees or who at least have had
a fair portion of their undergraduate courses.
There are eight Sprott-Shaw Schools in B. C.—
four of them in Vancouver—and they are continually
attracting more and more of the better type of pupil.
On Sept. 15, 1926, they opened a School at the corner of Robson and Granville Streets with a University
Matriculation standard of entrance, and at the time
of writing (March 18) already 87 students have been
enrolled in the day classes, and 25 in the night classes.
Many of these are University Graduates, and the vast
majority have had from one to three years undergraduate study.
It  is a  well  known  fact  that
On the Sprott-Shaw staffs in Vancouver there are
among others: 3 University Post Graduates; 4 Graduates; 2 Undergraduates; 4 Normally trained teachers; 4 P. C. T.'s (Eng.), and 1 Chartered Accountant.

A Glorious Canadian Example to Endow a Glorious
Canadian University.
UNIVERSITY HILL, immediately adjoining the University of B.C.,
is the first section of residential property which is on the market
to endow the U.B.C. This tract of 108 acres is laid out in residential lots.
On account of its proximity to the Varsity, its location is as far west
as you can build on the Mainland of Canada. The wonderful panorama
of mountains and water, which can be seen from any point, since the
tract is "out of the smoke zone, in the ozone," and the fact that it is zoned
and wisely restricted, makes it the most logical location for the home-
seeker, and doubly attractive to everyone connected with the U.B.C.
and those who have the interests of this institution at heart.
All the public utilities are in on the property water, light, telephone,
gas, and sewers, streets and sidewalks, and the boulevards planted with
trees and shrubs.
The land can be bought or leased, and the Government loans money
on easy terms for building.
The transportation system at present is by bus and will be augmented
as conditions require. The site is only twenty minutes from the Post
Office by motor.
It is up to the student body to boost this property to their relatives
and friends. The faster this desirable community of homes builds up,
the better it will be for the U.B.C. Do not forget that these are "University
Endowment Lands."
Any information regarding this property will be gladly supplied by—

INCORPORATED by Royal Charter in the reign of King Charles II.
on May 2nd, 1670, the Hudson's Bay Company is to-day the oldest
mercantile institution on the North American continent.
The change in character from barter to commerce is perhaps less significant than the expansion of the H. B. C. operations during the past 257 years.
The "Non-Such," a vessel of 50 tons, sailed for Hudson's Bay in
1668, its cargo consisting of a few simple articles to be exchanged for
During the years 1915 to 1919 the H. B. C. transported
for various governments goods in excess of 13,000,000 tons.
In 1918 and 1919 the work was equivalent to unloading the
contents of the "Non-Such" every seven minutes of the day
and night for two years on end.
Of greater interest and importance is the huge trade of the Company's Stores.
They say the sun never sets on the British Empire!
The Hudson's Bay Company can boast a parallel, because with
buying offices in Winnipeg, Montreal, New York, London, Paris, the
Orient, etc., we just about circle the earth. These, together with a small
army of buyers who constantly visit the world's markets, are the means
by which we bring to our patrons the things which are new, and by
group buying for all Stores, effect a great saving in cost, which we pass
on to you, our patrons. PHONE:   SEYMOUR  661
