The Class History of Arts '30
AS WE look back over our four years
of University life we find much to
be proud of, both in our own accomplishments and in our heritage from
previous years.
Arts '30 was the first Freshman class
to   be   placarded
and   to   be   entertained at tea by the
Gaining a reputation in athletics
early in its career,
the class has set an
enviable record.
Rene Harris and
Claire M e n t e n
have been on the
Senior "A" Basketball team for four
years. Arts '30
women have won
the Governor's cup
for three successive
years, and are hoping to establish a
record by winning
it for the fourth
time. They have
also been successful
each year in winning the inter-class
basketball and
track event s—
Thelma M a h o n
being the track
star. The Lipsett cup was won at the
Rotary Ice Carnival by a team composed
of Belle McGauley, Maxine Chapman,
Marion Sproule and Dorothy Bolton.
Margaret Riggs broke the Dominion
record for the plunge. As a result of
these successes, Arts '30 is leading in the
total number of inter-class points for
women.    But the women are not the only
DR.  T.   II.   BOGGS
ones who have upheld the class in athletics, the men having played an equally
important part. In men's athletics we
have as outstanding members: Douglas
McNeill, Monty Wood, Bill Robbins
and Rod Pilkington in English Rugby;
Tommy Berto and
John Coleman in
Canadian Rugby:
Jimmy Dunn, Jack
Litch, Ed Thor
lakson and Russ
Munn in track and
boxing; Malcolm
McGregor, Bunny
Wright, Tom
Chalmers, Tom
Sanderson, in soccer. In our Sophomore year we won
the Arts'20 Relay.
In debating and
oratory the class
has produced many
able speakers in the
last four years. For
intercollegiate debates, J. Dunn, F.
Morley, C. Brazier, D. McDonald,
H. Freeman and B.
Tobin have upheld U.B.C.
In the Players'
Club, Dorothy
Pound played the
leading role in the Spring play of her
Freshette year, also in her Junior year,
she was president of the Club. Sydney
Risk has toured the province for four
successive years and is well known for
his realistic interpretations. Other members taking leading parts in the 1930
Spring play were John Coleman, Alex
Smith and David Brock.

Jessie is a happy girl with a merry laugh th.it
makes the world seem brighter. She has an
earnest love for Botany, and would be too exuberant if she could devote all her time to this
subject. But the powers that be decree that she
should give some little time to such serious subjects as History and English. To offset this,
Jessie takes her recreation at the Biological Discussion Club.
"Who travels fastest travels alone."
"Nick" is the mystery man of Arts '30
Rarely seen in lectures he is a veritable fountain
of information. Immortalized by his subtle
humor, he is a soap-box" orator of repute, and
has formed the nucleus of many a Common
Room demonstration. He has pursued such
occupations as steam shovel fireman, high pres
sure salesman, postmaster general and efficiency
expert. He scintillates at Chess, Thoth Ballet
dancing, and promoting pep meetings. The
most important of his infinite ambitions is to
remain single forever.
Betty is one of the clever students from Victoria who came to us after two years at Victoria College as well as one at Normal. She is
seldom seen on the campus as most of her time
is spent honoring in Zoology and Bacteriology.
She consistently makes high grades. Betty is
ever full of optimism with always the better side
of everything to tell. She is bound to succeed
in whatever field she enters.
A good student with an outstanding athletic
record. Bob holds the Varsity pole vault record
which he made in 1927, in the same year he
tied for the track championship. Bob also represented Varsity at the Washington and Tacoma
track meets in 1926 and 1927, played Freshman
Rugby, McKechnie Cup Rugby and basketball
for three years. Yes, he is a Big Block winner.
Besides all this Bob is a double course man in
Mechanical Engineering, and was athletic rep. of
his class for the last two years.
"What next!" is what we exclaim after listening to Barbara talk. Her most striking characteristic is her gift of unexpectedness, whether
in conversation or in her appearance as "Clementine." Her career has been literary, and has
ranged from upholding the Women's Literary
Society as secretary, to filling positions on the
"Ubyssey" and "Totem." Her sidelines have
included swimming. Biology and the Drama.
A connoisseur of attitudes toward life, she believes, with Shakespeare, that "youth's a stuff
will not endure."
Margaret isn t one of those energetic girls
who are always doing things," but no one is
more enthusiastic about dances and parties, or
ready to pronounce upon the merits of an Aggie
dance as compared to a Science dance. Her more
serious moments are spent in the meetings of
the International Club, or in English and History lectures. Margaret's burning desire is to
study Interior Decoration, but she will probably
descend from Salmon Arm next year for
Reg. can always be found in some lab. in the
Science Building. He is taking honors in Chemistry, but also includes Physics and German in
his course He has a lab. technique that is the
admiration of all Chem. students. Among his
fellows he is popular and much respected, and
was elected president of the Chemistry Society
this year He hopes to continue with his work
in Chemistry and perhaps specialize in Bio
Helen has gained fame as a student during her
Varsity course; her scholastic record has been
adorned with scholarships won in both her
first and second years. She has since resigned
herself to the fate of a History honor student.
Her friends find that marks are the least of her
worries. She is always ready to join in a
friendly conversation, and enlivens it by her
ready Scotch wit. When she is not delving into
Gardiner's History of England," Helen is
waiting   for   Eileen."
Coming to Varsity from Vancouver Tech.
Maurice has remained, throughout his four years,
practically unknown to the co-eds. He played
English Rugby from his Freshman year and has
many friends on the athletic field Although
his record as a student has not been outstanding,
he has never been worried by supplemental or
a failure. Maurice majors in English and History and intends to come back next year to take
Dorothy is one of our enthusiastic lovers of
sport. On Sundays she regularly climbs Grouse
Mountain to exhibit her graceful (?) skiing.
The rest of the week finds her skating, swim
ming, dancing or playing tennis- as the season
affords. Her friends are continually getting her
out of "scraps," but no one would suspect this
side of her by watching the very worried and
industrious expression on her face while she is
working at the Loan Desk.
Manner unaffected and cheerful, neither too
quiet nor too studious, Lorraine is the personification of kindness and friendship. She shows
an interest in a number of subjects, including
Philosophy, Economics (?), and English, in
which she is majoring. Her spare time is spent
in the Library delving in Sociology reference
books. Her destination next fall is Berkeley
where she intends to take a course in Commercial
or Home Economics.
In his four years of University life. Russ
has devoted his attentions to swimming and
English Rugby in athletics, and to Economics
and English in his more serious work. In
swimming he has particularly shone, and has
borne the worries and cares of that club for the
past year, Russ. expects to graduate in Commerce and we feel confident that he will some
day fill an important role in the business world.
Midge has caught the secret of success—she
hears everything that goes on says nothing, but
thinks out a very sound and sensible solution
for the difficulty. She has a sane detached view
point which helps her to obtain first classes in
Economics and English, and makes her the ideal
bridge player. Next year we can imagine the
midget bringing astonishing efficiency to the office of some business firm.
First soccer and boxing in his Freshman and
Sophomore years, president of Science '30 until
he deserted us to see the world from the engine
room of a freighter. The following Fall found
him with us again, and the year after, president
of M.A.A., and quarterback on the Big Four
Canadian Rugby team. Injuries at football
forced him to leave college in November, but he
is back this year playing Senior "A" Basketball
and also officiating as Yell King. Tommy intends
to enter the world of commerce
Ann's favorite haunt is the P. Q.'s in the
Library stacks, and her French marks are the
envy of her less fortunate friends But a French
honor course seems to rest lightly on her shoulders, even to the extent of skipping last and
first lectures of the term A member of "L'
Alliance Francaise" and secretary of "La
Causerie" last year, Ann also found time for the
Musical Society where she warbled her enthusi
asm among the mez/o-sopranos.

Although Kay is a Victoria student and has
spent only two years at U.B.C we feel she needs
no introduction. She has consistently refused to
let such little things as examinations worry her,
and has made a casual albeit successful passage
through college. She has tried every course,
and approves of them all- in moderation. It
is rumored that she also has other "college interests" both large and small, but this space does
not permit us to enlarge.
Robert is known among his friends as "Bob."
He hails from the little known hinterlands of
New Westminster. Hard working and very serious and sincere he tempers his seriousness with
a rather dry humor, "Thorough" describes him.
In class, Bob" takes splendid notes which are
fine for lazy people to copy; in the field of sport
he has played grass hockey. Besides these accomplishments "Bob" is president of the V.C.U.

Harold came to Canada from Holland five
years ago. matriculated from McGill. and entered U.B.C. in 1927. Harolds academic interest is in modern languages. In his second
year he was treasurer of "La Canadienne." and in
his Senior year, its president. He has also been
a regular member of the German Club, an
occasional visitor at the International Club, and
a member of the Chess Club executive. In his
first year he was manager of the Junior Soccer
team and has since played Senior Grass Hockey.
Cherries home is in Stewart. B.C., but she
makes a habit of coming here each September.
She is often seen playing basketball in the gym.,
and now she aspires to become expert in another form of athletics in the form of tap dancing. She is also one of those who very much
enjoys her tea at the International Club. Cherrie
cant decide whether to return for Education,
or to spend next year at the University of

Mary is one of those unusual people with
red hair and a constant smile on her face; the
temper which usually is found with red hair
is lacking in Mary. In her first two years at
Varsity she played basketball on the Varsity
Senior "B" team, and in her third and fourth
years obtained for herself a place on the Senior
"A". Mary carries off first class marks in
History. How is it done Mary? Anyway, best
of luck in your future work!
A matriculant from Surrey High School.
Gordon is registered in Arts and Theology. For
two years he was a member of the Musical Society. A sterling "half" on the "Theology
Eleven," he yet finds time to engage in public
speaking and is an orator of no mean merit,
having won the Union College Oratorical Contest last year. English and History are his
specialties, while he acts as Biblical reference
authority for English 9, One thing only
Gordon lacks—an appreciation of his own
This petite girl with the wind-blown hair
and brown eyes comes to us from the Kootenays.
Her chief interest at college is a French honor
course. Though a conscientious student, Max.
can always find time to play; her favorite pastimes are skating and dates. Interested in all
French activities, Maxine has been for the past
two years a member of the executive of 'La
Canadienne." We sincerely hope that she will
realize her dream of a year in Paris
'One of the best." George spent his last
two years at Varsity with Arts '30. Since 1922
he has taught school in Victoria where he gained
an enviable reputation as grade teacher and vice-
principal. A splendid student, he attended
night classes at Victoria College to complete his
second year. Mathematics and Physics, his
specialties, have left no time for rugby, at which
he is adept.
Born on a Christmas Day in Tokyo city;
Brothers and sisters graduated here;
She went to Normal for a studious year,
Then came to U.B.C.    She's keen and witty:
Poetry, music, people, all appear
In her bright speech, and drama's "fear and pity."
The Letters Club is her especial sphere.
And on her finger very bright and clear
There is a diamond, to crown this ditty.

Elaine is one of the most important and well-
liked girls in Arts '30 by reason of her executive
abilities and her genial personality. With apprenticeship as secretary of the class in her second
year and vice-president in her third year, Elaine
occupied, this year, the presidency of the
Women's Undergraduate Society. In this capacity Elaine led the W. U. S. through a most
successful year A loyal and conscientious
worker. Elaine will be a success in her chosen
line of work     that of social service.
Charlie came to Varsity to provide a foundation for his studies in Law. Here he has proved
himself a man of outstanding energy and efficiency, possessing the rare quality, ability to
concentrate upon one thing at a time. This
trait has enabled Charlie to accomplish more
than the average student. Thus we find that
he has engaged in activities such as the following, three years as an inter collegiate debater;
hockey; treasurer, A.MU.S.; president, L.S.E.;
Social Science Club, and in spite of all these,
honors in Economics.
Sally's love of flowers, (particularly roses!!)
and of everything beautiful and artistic, is undoubtedly due to the fact that she hails from
the charming metropolis of Chilliwack. Her
chief interests in life appear to be History courses
and small boys aged four, the former arising
from a pasionate love of the subject (and the
odd first class) and the latter from a weakness
for mankind in general. Probable result: Education course to teach History.
Pepe is a  blonde.
With curly hair.
Usually to be seen in grey flannel bags.
And an old tweed coat.
He had a leading part in
The "Romantic Young Lady,"
And contributed thereby some of
The best acting seen in these parts.
He emerges from a Celtic twilight
To scatter handfuls of Irish wit about him.
And is himself the cause of wit in others.
Madge, as she is more familiarly known to
her friends, comes from Berkeley each year to
attend U.B.C. She is a fluent conversationalist
in French and German, and has also studied
Spanish in the south Madge is president of
"La Causerie," an enthusiastic member of "Der
Deutsche Verein," and may be seen and heard
in all the activities of the Musical Society. She
is honoring in French and writing a thesis in
her spare time. She will probably do post
graduate work in the south.

Mathematics, Philosophy and Latin seem a
heavy course for such an extremely youthful and
petite person as Peggy, but she has suffered no
ill effects from it. This year most of her attention has been concentrated on Maths. 16,
her lighter moments being devoted to the Mathe
matics Club and very occasional chats in the
Library. Her one weakness is the 5:20 West
Van. Ferry. After Education next year—believe ii or not—Peggy is going to teach the rising  generation.
Johnny saw hills first in Scotland. He migrated, and became a K.E.H.S. matriculant; then
a "freshie" at U.B.C. during Fairview days;

During her college daze "Mickey" has be-
loged to "Der Deutsche Verein." the International Club and "La Causerie " She was an
enthusiastic guard on the Senior "B" Basketball
team, saving the day many a time. As one of
the "High Notes" in the Musical Society, she
is heard to advantage in the annual Spring concerts. "Mickey" is majoring in Philosophy and
minoring in English, and displays her originality
by her determination not to take Education next
Music with all its compelling charms has
claimed Clifford throughout his University
career. He and his violin are very rarely absent
from any undertaking of the Musical Society.
Then, to balance his artistic existence, he carries
on a vigorous study of Zoology with a marked
preference for fishes, and promulgates his ideas
thereon at the meetings of the Biological Discussion Club.
Beatrice is a petite brunette with a happy sense
.of humor. She has. throughout her four years
at Varsity, obtained very high averages in her
studies. Her favorite subjects are English and
Philosophy. Besides attending University,
Beatrice has travelled extensively, having visited
England, Scotland, Germany and other European
countries- Last year, in the summer holidays,
she toured the southern States. Beatrice has not
yet decided what will claim her attention after
graduation. Being artistically inclined, she may
become a votary of art.

Isabel is a Victoria student who has spent
her last three years at U.B.C. She has only
emerged from the stacks long enough to form
the new Scrap Book Club of which she is presi
dent and to join two of our campus clubs. "La
Canadienne" and the Philosophy Club. In her
quietly expressive and capable way. Isabel is
very necessary to the roll call of Arts '30.
Born in Tokyo.   1903.
Came to Canada, six years old.
Worked in a bank,  (C. B. of C.)
Taught in school for a year, I'm told.
Letters Club lured him into the fold,
Historical group he joined with glee,
History honors he'll have and hold,
If he doesn't drink too much tea.
lugene! who flaunted your hair of gold,
Carolling loud and cheerfully,
Come calm or storm; come sun or cold.
All good wishes from Varsity!
Who would think that demure little Dorothy
with the fair, curly hair and the big blue eyes
was a first class student in Philosophy? It is
true, nevertheless, that this weighty subject forms
her chief interest in life. Dorothy is an enthusiastic member of the Philosophy Club, but
she balances this serious side of her college life
by belonging to the Gym Club also. After
graduation she aspires to be somebody's private
Tom is one of those very few persons gifted
with a scientific mind. This was first shown in
his high school days at Burnaby South, and
later at Varsity where he has taken Chemistry
honors. Though being chiefly engaged with his
studies, he finds time to play soccer, and this
year is captain of the First team. Whether in
sports or studies. Tom follows his interests with
a "never-say-die" spirit that is certain to give
him success in the teaching profession, which
he intends to enter.
Coming from Victoria College in third year.
Barbara soon won many friends, for she is the
happy possessor of those qualities which make
an ideal classmate. As she is always able to pro
cure "firsts" with ease, double honors in Philoso
phy and English mean little to this brilliant
senior Also Barbara is an enthusiastic member
of the Letters Club and Philosophy Club.

After spending two years at Victoria College.
Rena ventured to the big city in pursuit of
higher learning (and other things). All through
her college career she has scored scholastically, yet
we always notice her name "among those present." Rena does not go in for athletics herself,
but just try to keep her away from an English
Rugby game! Rena's ready wit affords a fund
of laughter for all who know her.
Johnnie's chief interest centers about those
havens of the idle rich known as golf courses.
He has other amusements such as Chess, Thoth
ballets and University courses. In his four years
at Varsity he has tried various subjects, finally
settling on Maths and Philosophy. He lately
displayed marvellous form in winning the lightning Chess tournament, but that is to be expected
of the president. He is occasionally heard from
in the Thoth Club, and carries frightful memories of numerous ballets and beauty contests
Dogs scatter when they see Margaret coming
in "Betsy;" in fact her favorite expression is
"dog-gone." Margaret is famous for her eight
passenger coupe, with its bulging rumble seat.
Besides being an excellent driver, Marg. has on
more than one occasion distinguished herself on
the Varsity Swimming team. Day after day
Margaret listens to lectures on Economics. She
is planning to come back to Varsity next year
to take her Bachelor of Commerce degree
John was born in Bangalore, India, and at
tended schools in England, Ontario and Vancouver, coming to U.B.C. as a Sophomore Pre-
Med. from St. Andrew's College, Toronto. He
starred as flying wing on the Canadian Rugby
team, annexing two Big Block awards. In his
Senior year John joined the Players' Club and
appeared in both the Christmas and Spring productions. He will enter the University of Toronto next term in the Faculty of Medicine and
will no doubt make a most popular and con -
scientious M.D.
One of those quieter students who are. nevertheless, among the most valuable members of
the University. Jean is a native of Vancouver
and came to us from Magee High School. During working hours English and History claim
most of her attention, but by way of recreation
she is an enthusiastic and very successful tennis

Frances comes from New Westminster and on
her way ovei often picks up in her car someone
in distress. She is especially interested in French
and Economics: her interest in French being exhibited by membership in "La Causerie" of
which she is vice-president. Before attending
University, Frances taught the youth of British
Columbia, and after graduating intends to return  to this profession.
As a representative of North Vancouver, Art
has shown us the possibilities of a small town.
Because of an unnatural passion for Physics and
Mathematics, much of his time has been occupied, but occasionally he has been found diligently engaged in Sociology. With this foundation we feel sure that Art has a successful career
ahead in his chosen field of teaching. Favorite
sports—hiking and arguing.
Moving picture with dialogue--and how she
can talk! After writing up reports of the
W. U. S., she has to tear down to burrow
around in antique shops for properties for
Christmas and Spring plays. Last year she was
secretary of Arts 30, and while serving in that
capacity learned how to blow up balloons. Now
and then she has time to attend a lecture just
to let the professors know that she still has an
interest  in  their subjects.
If you ever feel blue or disappointed, just see
Ernie about it. During his four years of University life his optimistic disposition has always
been predominant. Ernie's strength is French:
he is a member of "La Canadienne." Incidentally, he has spent a good deal of his spare time
writing History essays. A few years' time will
find him telling high school pupils the details of
this subject.
Before coming to Varsity. Evelyn spent a
year studying commercial subjects. Not forgetting the lure of the business world, she intends
to become a commercial teacher. As a result,
most of her time has been spent cramming such
subjects as Mathematics with a little Economics
thrown in. Despite this she has found time to
be a member of the executive of the International
Club, a member of the Mathematics Club and
the Art Club, and we have even heard of her
leading an S. C. M. discussion.

For the last four years early risers in Burnaby
have seen Ella start out for the inevitable nine
o'clock. In her third year Ella decided to major
in Mathematics and French, diluting knowledge
with basketball practices (Senior "B" team).
This year she is a member of "La Causerie."
and in her spare moments delves into various
and sundry encyclopedias in quest of essay material. Next year she will be learning how to
instill knowledge into public and high school
Roy was a binder's error: he is an edition of
Punch incarcerated in one of those old stiff
board covers with a lock, properly reserved for
family Bibles. Upon approaching him one suffers an instinctive impulse to genuflect. This
desire should be curbed, however, for the precarious balance of such a posture is not suitable
for acute mirth. Between puns. Roy devotes
himself most successfully to an English honors
course, the V. C. U., the presidency of the
Letters Club, and midnight suppers,
Marion came to U.B.C. from the capital,
after taking her first two years at Victoria
College Besides majoring in French and Mathematics, she received her L. Mus. for piano last
year. She has also devoted much time to student
activities, being a member of both the International Club and the Musical Society. After
graduating. Marion intends to continue hei
musical studies, and in her spare time to perfect
her game of golf.
From his Freshman year "DunL." has been
closely associated with Varsity athletics. He
was athletic rep. of Arts '30 in his first year
and a member of the Arts '20 Relay team. In
Senior Canadian Rugby, he figured in games
with the Rough Riders. U of Alberta and U.
of Saskatchewan. "Dune" has held down the
right end position on the team for three years,
and hopes to do so next year when he returns
for Education. His most prized possession is a
qrcen and white U. of Saskatchewan sweater.

Rene has displayed her abilty and enthusiasm
in various branches of student activity ranging
from the height of athletic achievement to hard
work on executives. She has been an invaluable
forward on the Senior "A" Basketball team for
four years, secretary-treasurer of the Women s
Athletic Association for two years, athletic representative of Arts '30 this year, and always a dependable member of the class track team Her
special aptitudes are Chemistry and Bacteriology,

Coming to us from Hamilton. Ontario,
"Letty" joined Arts '30 in her Freshman year.
Especially interested in languages, she is taking
combined honors in French and German, and
spends most of her spare time in the stacks
gathering material for her thesis or reading German novels. As treasurer of "La Causerie" in
her Junior year, and president of "Der Deutsche
Verein" this year. Letty has shown her executive
ability. Undecided as to her future, she will
probably  take post graduate  work.
In 1922 Bentley joined Arts '26 and spent
his Freshie and Soph, days with that class. The
next year he spent at Normal where he filled the
offices of President of Athletics, Business Manager
of the Annual and song leader. After three
years' teaching in Richmond. Bentley returned
to Varsity, joining Arts '30 with the intention
of taking honors in Chemistry. Bentley spends
his summers driving a truck for the good of his
language and manners Next year he will be
teaching again.
Hilary is not a man, although she was much
embarrassed in her Freshman year at being
put into masculine classes. She has now become "Hil" to the gossip-mongers in the campus
cars. Although Hil plunged with vigor into
badminton and swimming clubs as a freshette.
she departed from the active life soon after and
only returned with her recent advent into golf.
In  the future she  intends to be a Librarian.

Ena came from Victoria College. She
is the most casual student we know, but always
manages to make the grade. She is also endowed with that desirable quality "the gift of

in fact she can find something humorous in any
situation. Ena's chief worries are English and
Economics, but she is also much concerned with
History and Education.

During her four years of Varsity life, Dorothy
has won for herself a large circle of friends.
Dorothy spends much of her time studying
classical languages for which she has such an
affinity that she is majoring in Greek and minor-
ing in Latin. Furthermore, she has been a
much-valued member of the V. C. U. of which
she was secretary as a junior and vice-president
in her Senior year.
Molly comes from Armstrong. B.C. She is

Judging by outward appearances and the dignity of her bearing, Connie might have stepped
from crinoline days. But one en not know
her long, before her modern and radical ideas
dispel any such illusion. During her third and
fourth years Connie was vice-president of "Der
Deutsche Verein," a member of "L' Alouettc"
and a frequent hiker to the V. O. C. cabin.
Connie's habitual high marks may be due to
her fondness for the Library.

Thelma timed her graduation from Britannia
High so she could become a member of Arts '30.
Her main interests are French and German, in
both of which she excels. She is a member of
"La Causerie." and the capable secretary of
"Der Deutsche Verein." Thelma is generally
seen struggling through some tragic German
classic. Her rapid flow of German is quite
"di/zying." She intends to come back to take
Fducation next year. We are sure she will
make a success of her profession.
Harold began his University career in '29.
After spending a year in business, he returned
with Arts '30. He has distinguished himself
particularly in the field of public speaking. As
an intercollegiate debater for three years he
crossed swords with Idaho. Utah, and Alberta.
In the U.B.C. Oratorical Contest of 1928 he
was awarded the silver medal. This year Harold is the very successful president of the Debating Union. It was his energy that aroused
student interest in debating.
'Sweetheart we need each other," says Dory,

managed to find time to take an active interest in
the Swimming Club, and this year as its president, has guided the club with very successful
results. "Budge's" executive ability, together
with her charming personality, will bring success
to her in anything she undertakes.
Just look him over: a shy but determined
student from the Royal City. Roland is a
driver in his studies in English and History and
makes some startling averages in his exams. His
favorite preposition is "heck," which denotes
either a distaste of obtruding his qualities before
others or a slight bristling at some imposition
from a professor We are often startled by his
pithy sayings which reveal a keen sense of
humor. Roland is drifting towards a pedagogical profession.
Muriel, a Victoria girl, is already a full-
fledged teacher. She attended Victoria College
and Normal, and then spent several years instilling knowledge into denizens of the Kooten-
ays. Having "instilled" to her fill, or perhaps
to theirs, she sought the more intricate mysteries
at Varsity, where she pursued the study of Eng
lish with a smattering of Latin and History.
She is an active member of the Classics Club,
and after graduating she intends to resume her
professorial career.
Peter wandered in from Chilliwack to join
other bewildered members of Arts '30 in h;s
first year. He delved aimlessly into Economics
and then decided to become a preceptor. The
coast atmosphere induced a langor which concealed his scholastic ability, but this year the
lethargy departed and a heavy course has been
handled with startling success. Specialities:
English and History, weighted with Philosophy. Sports: Grass Hockey, Chess, and tickling the consciences of his friends by relating
his overnight studies.

Frank is one of those unobtrusive men who
offer a genuine friendship to his chums. Adventuring on a successful combined honors course
in Economics and Mathematics, he was elected
vice-president of the Mathematics Club from
which position he resigned owing to his partiality for the new Department of Commerce.
Frank will return next year for his B. Com. in
preparation, no doubt, for more work on the
stock exchange in which he has indulged during
the past few summers.

When we first met Olive back in Freshman
days, we thought she was studious, shy and
quiet. Live and learn! Studious she proved to
be by winning a scholarship in her first year,
.-nd it is sufficient to say she's not shy and quiet.
She is keenly interested in French, as is shown
by her membership in "L'Alouette," of which
she is secretary. She is also a member of "Der

Olive will  return  next year to take Education.
Disclaiming allegiance to any form of enthusiasm. Percy is famous for his advice on all

throughout her Varsity career, and though she
always appears much astonished at her high
marks, they do not surprise her friends. Future?

off and on. Five years teaching failed to steal
his typical "college spirit." and fourth year finds
him the optimistic president of the Arts Mens

been to get him out in the company of a ravishing freshette. Imagine his embarrassment! How
ever, with rare discretion he took Physics honors
and by spending all his time in the laboratories
has so far kept out of harm's way—apparently.
He is by nature "agin the gov'ment." and is
particularly fond of proclaiming against the iniquitous examination system. But since he has
won a University Scholarship each year he finds
it a bit difficult to make his arguments convincing.

way through University despite examinations,
laziness, and poor memory. Like most men he
is inordinately conceited about his modesty, yet,

gowns, he has apparently decided that further
dress reform is necessary. Formerly secretary
of the Chess Club, he is a member of the Social
Science Club and is prominent in Thoth circles,
starring as Anthony in the last ballet.
Kay, as she is better known to her friends,
devotes most of her time to English, French
and Philosophy, but in spite of these varied
pursuits, she finds time to take a keen interest
in student activities. That she is a valuable
acquisition to the Studio Club, of which she
is vice-president, has been proven by her performances at the noon hour recitals and club
meetings. She is also an enthusiastic and regular
attendant at the Gym Club.
Ken.—from Victoria and Queens—joined
Arts '30 in its fourth year. Before attending
U.B.C. as a regular student he had already gained

again enter the teaching profession. History and
English occupy the major part of Ken's attention, but rugby also finds some place in his busy
life,  for he plays with the Intermediate team.
Kay entered University from Britannia High
School. As an honor student in Mathematics
she is keenly interested in that subject, and is
a regular attendant at the Mathematics Club

Sunday Schools of the city. Kay plans to continue her studies for an M.A. and a Ph.D. We
predict that she will be successful in her life

of the Social Science Club, has done a little debating, and takes special delight in caricaturing

The Class History of Arts '30
(Continued  from  Page Ten)
The Musical Society has afforded a great deal of enjoyment
with its noon programs and recitals. Victoria Rendell is taking
a leading part in the Spring operetta; other active members being
Frances Reece, Muriel Harvey and Harold King.
Rod Pilkington has been on the Publications Board for four
years, and now fills the position of Editor-in-Chief. Jean Wood-
worth was Editor of the 1929 "Totem" and is now a Senior Editor
of the "Ubyssey."
Arts '30 has ably combined academic work with athletic and
social activities. Frank Morley won the I. O. D. E. scholarship—
the first undergraduate to be awarded this honor.
Class spirit has not been lacking. Arts '30 Road Race which
has proved so popular, was inaugurated in our Junior year, and
among our memories are the Soph party at the Winter Garden, the
Junior party at the Willow Hall and the Senior party in the new
gymnasium—ours being the first class function to be held there. An
artistic autumn decoration scheme proved most effective. No doubt
the triumph in parties was the Senior Ball held in the Oak Room
of the Hotel Vancouver—a most fitting grand finale.
Among the most prominent members on the Students' Council
are: Russ Munn, President of the A. M. S.; Elaine Colledge, President of the W. U. S.; Dorothy Pound, Secretary of the A. M. S.;
Doug. Macdonald, President of the M. U. S.; Thelma Mahon,
Women's Athletic Representative; Jimmy Dunn, Men's Athletic
Representative, and Charles Brazier, President of the L. S. E.
The class of Arts '30 wishes to take this opportunity of expressing to Dr. Boggs its sincere appreciation for his guidance, his
never-failing interest, and helpful suggestions as Honorary President.
The executive this year includes: Honorary President, Dr.
Boggs; President, Bill Robbins; Vice-President, Betty Whiteside;
Secretary, Belle McGauley; Treasurer, Cameron Kirby; Sub-
Treasurer, Jean Salter; Women's Literary Representative, Barbara
Ashby; Men's Literary Representative, Harry Hickman; Women's
Athletics, Rene Harris; Men's Athletics, John Coleman; Reporter,
Basil Wright.
Page Fifty-one Arts '31
TpHE Class of Arts '31 is like a tree. Its fine, strong roots search
■*• far into the riches of athletics, learned and artistic societies. Its
leaves absorb the sun-light of social functions. The peculiarity of
this tree, however, is its trunk, the Valedictory Gift project. This
common task lends to the class-tree that strength and grace which
only a well developed trunk can afford.
During its Sophomore year, Arts '31, at the suggestion of Mr.
Stanley W. Mathews, decided to build a collection of British Columbia historical material. At graduation this would constitute the
Valedictory Gift of the class, and the continued growth of the collection would be entrusted to a permanent organization. Eric North
leads a strong committee, which has had the very valuable support of
Mr. Mathews, Dr. W. N. Sage, Mr. R. L. Reid and many others.
Already a valuable collection is housed in a handsome cabinet, the
gift of the Board of Governors.
Athletics is a vital interest of the class. The women favor badminton, basketball and hockey. In men's athletics, Basketball Senior
"A" and Senior "B" teams claim four Arts '31 men. Both English
and Canadian Rugby are supported by Arts '31 players, as are ice
hockey and grass hockey, soccer, swimming, rowing and fencing.
In track the class is particularly able. During the autumn, the
women made a very creditable showing in combination with '30 and
'32, defeating the freshettes. Leo Gansner, winner of the Cross
Country Race, and Tommy Burgess and Nelson Allen are the outstanding track men of the class.
Arts '31 makes a great contribution to the academic, artistic and
other societies of the campus. Class members take leading parts in
productions of the Musical Society, hold important positions on the
"Ubyssey" staff, and several are outstanding figures in the Players'
During the Fall, prairie "ruggers" were entertained at a tea-
dance. At the time of writing the Class party is still something
looked forward to with pleasure.
Dr. W. N. Sage is Honorary President. Bob McLarty very
ably presides over an executive consisting of: Margaret Muirhead,
Mavis Holloway, Sally Carter, Dorothy Myers, Larry Lang, Malcolm Hebb, Bill Selder and Frank McKenzie.

IN THE land of Point Grey, which is called Var-Sity, there
dwelt a multitude of men and women. And an all powerful
man, whose name was Se-mple, was their king. And the
woman who helped him rule was called Cam-eron. And these
people were exceedingly brave. And they called themselves
Sophomores, meaning "wise." Now the greatest deed of all
was their attempt to foster public speaking in this land. And
they held classes for this, their members profiting thereby. For
of great use was the practice and the criticism of their judges,
members of the mighty Faculty. And chief among the speakers
was Robert Bro-oks of the men, and Cecilia Long of the
women. And this race was represented in the Players' Club
and the Musical Society. In the latter Frank Snow-sell, Bet-ty
Smith and many others gained fame, and in the Players' Club,
Elizabeth Mag-ee, Swanhild Matt-hison, J. Ham-mett and
others did likewise. Now in all this land, even to Chilli-wack,
were there none so great in the foot-race, and it came to pass
that J. Hammett was fleetest of all in the road race, named
Arts '30. And these people were wondrous great in many
sports. In rugby, which was of two nations Eng-land and
Can-ada, Root, Bol-ton. Patt-erson, Led-ingham and Ga-ul
went forth and excelled all who met them. And in the games
called Basket-ball, Grass-Hockey, Ice-Hockey and Soc-cer these
people vanquished all. Nor were the men alone in their
greatness, for it was seen that the maidens too were
mighty in everything. Yea, in bad-minton, Irene Ram-age
and Sheila Tisdall, and in basketball, Rettie Ting-ley and
Florence Carl-isle, were of the First teams. And in many
other sports were the women foremost. And lo! because
of their mighty deeds these people waxed exceeding joyful
and disported themselves in the wilderness, called Stan-ley
Park, and in the University gym.
Thus many and great were the deeds
of this race led by their king and the head-
woman and the chief men and women of
the tribe who were: Prof. H. Ang-us, Sid
Se-mple, Jean Cameron, Kenneth Beck-ett,
Mary Doo-ley, Jean Wit-beck, Don
Davi-dson, Florence Carl-isle, Tom
Brown, and Doris Bar-ton.

The Class History of Science '30
OCIENCE '30 is the first Science class to have spent all its five years
^ at Point Grey. These years have shown that Science '30 has
played a prominent part in the affairs of the college. We were one
of the classes which were active in having the prerequisite year spent
in First Year Arts officially recognized as a year spent in Applied
In our second year, when we were first organized as a Science
Class, red lettered sweat shirts were purchased, and thus attired we
waged a not unsuccessful warfare with Arts. Hostilities were renewed the following year when a battle raged over the Arts shoe-
shining stand.
In track our class has held an enviable record. In 1926-27
we placed third in the Arts '20 Relay; in 1927-28 placed second,
and, to prove that we were going stronger than ever, won the event
last year. The team consisted of Bill Selby, Alan Macdonald, Ross
Workman, Ted Hay, Tom Hadwin, Bill Thornber, Bill Locke, and
Jim Craster. This year, with seven of last year's team back, we
have hopes of repeating last year's performance.
Other lines of sport are also represented: Locke and Rhodes
represent English and Canadian Rugby respectively; Craster and
Barclay play Grass Hockey. The inter-class skating relay has been
won by the Science '30 team for the last two years.
In executive positions the class is well represented, there being
three men on the Science Men's Undergrad, three on the executive
of the G. M. Dawson Club, and three members on the executive
of the students' branch of the E. I. C.
Two members of the class belong to the Players' Club. In the
realm of studies we can boast of the wizard Hrennikoff, who is
guaranteed to make 95% averages.
We started out in 1926-27 with over eighty members, but as
is usual with Science classes, most fell by the wayside, though some
additions helped to fill our depleted ranks. This year there are thirty-
five members of Science '30 in the various departments as follows:
five Chemicals, two Civils, ten Electricals, one Forester, eight Geologists, six Mechanicals, one Metallurgist, and two Miners.
The Honorary President for the year was Professor F. W.
Vernon. The executive included James Pike, Jimmy Hadgkiss, Ted
Hay, Clare Horwood, Bill Selby and Roy Graham.
"Em" entered University with the Lieut-
Governor's gold medal, and has since kept up
an enviable record, both scholastically and otherwise. He has played Canadian Rugby and is an
ardent supporter of all sports. He finds time to
devote to his outboard motorboat building, racing and diving; the past summer he won the
championship of Vancouver in the latter. The
class of '30 will always remember him as a very
fine type of fellow, completely unspoiled by a
University  education.
One of the "electrical ten," a systematic and
conscientious worker who seemingly has mastered the theory of the vacuum tube, and bids
fair to become a prominent radio engineer. Coming from Hamilton. Ontario. Ian joined our
ranks in the first year His good humor and
deep sincerity of character have won him many
true friends at Varsity. For the most part quiet
and unassuming, and shy with the fair sex, Ian
professes to know nothing about women—at
least nothing for publication.
He is that rare avis, the aesthetic engineer;
he filches English text books from Artsmen; the
sacred precincts of the Players' Club are no
mystery to him. Nor do the Olympian heights
of Pure Science seem intimidating—witness him
secretary of the Chemistry Society. Inter class
Debating proves to him an agreeable diversion, as
does swimming, both inside and out. Round
out the picture with the odd scholarship, and
you  have  our  rising  young Chemical  Engineer.
Jack is another potential Steinmetz—translated one of those poor harassed mortals who
aspire to become Electrical Engineers. He spent
three years as a member of Science '29, then
decided to taste the bitter experience of manual
labor, with the result that he spent the greater
part of last year half way up a four hundred
foot chimney at Trail. Tiring of this, he came
back to join Science '30. Jack is one of the
leading lights of the Varsity Radio Club.
An original member of Science '30, Barclay
came to U.B.C. via the back door of Senior
Matriculation. He is now an important sixth
of the Mechanical Class and a member of our
Arts 2 0 Relay team. As a side line he also
plays Grass Hockey, and soldiers with the
C. O. T. C. Guy tears his hair over abstruse
problems and can solve any of them with the
aid of Marks Handbook. Favorite recreation:
bridge and  dancing.

Mechanical '30. Jim hails from the sunny
Okanagan. He joined the class in 1926 and is
another exception to the infallible rule, that a
Senior Matriculation man never makes the grade
in Applied Science. He is an industrious student
and a budding inventor, especially known for
his invention of "The Craster Spring Tube
Boiler." Jim takes an active interest in grass
hockey, and last year ran on the winning Science
'30 Relay team. On graduation he intends to
work for the C. G. E. at Peterboro.
Jimmy, the best-known man in Forestry '30.
took Arts as a sideline, and received his B A
last year. Pep personified, brimful of ideas,
organizer and enthusiasm raiser extraordinary,
the voice behind the radio in the Victoria Invasion campaign. His sparkling wit and bree/y
manners, together with his earnestness and great
pains-taking capacity, have made him universally
popular. Played rugby in his first year, and
proved his sterling worth on class relay teams;
Literary Rep. for the S. M. U. S, and president
of the Forest Club.
This husky boy comprises half of the class of
C. E. Sc. 730. General specifications as follows:
origin, The Island: ambition, to get first class
marks, (incidentally he does) : characteristics,
facial, consult blue print. Charley is a confirmed
believer in exercise and hard work. He is generally found around the Science Building either
taking in lectures or designing structures. In
fact, he only recently became acquainted around
the Library. Charley will be taking post-grad,
work next year.
Schubert, another overworked Electrical, came
into our midst, in our second year, from Victoria College. Schubert's hobby seems to be
conducting co-eds on a tour of inspection of the
haunts of the boiler and electrical specialists. He
is our slide-rule expert, being able at times to
get amazing results: and most often right ones.
After obtaining his sheep's skin he intends to
go to the General Electric.
"Bush" first attended University in 1920.
After varied wanderings he enrolled with Science
'28. This was a year of activity for him: he
played rugby, took the lead in the Spring play,
and in March, got married. He returns this
year to graduate as a metallurgist, proving himself a serious student. He is noted for his
straightforward and outspoken manner, and
has a bent for delving into the nature of things
in general, and people in particular.

Roy hails from Langley Prairie and since
coming to Varsity, has become interested in
Mesozoic flora. Although always standing high
in his class, especially in Mathematics and
Physics, he didn't really hit his stride until
fourth year Science, when his hard rock leanings
took him into Geological Engineering and to the
head of his class. As he is especially interested
in Palaeobotany, 1930 31 may find him doing
post-grad, work in Geology and Botany. Aftet
that a Ph.D. in the east will claim his attention.
May be classed as one of the founders of our
present University due to his participation in
the great campaign of 1922. Jimmy has been
active in University circles intermittently ever
since, as yell leader, musician, class president and
tap dancer de luxe In his spare time he has
been heard to draw tunes from a banjo, piano,
saxophone, trumpet or what have you. During the summer months Jimmy is interested in
the production of copper, but has decided that

Another of the Science 30 originals. During
his University career. Tom has consistently
maintained a high standing in academic work,
and this he has supplemented by practical summer experience on hydro electric surveys. His
record as a middle-distance track man is an enviable one. For three years he has been a big
factor in the success of his class in the Arts '20
Relay. His engaging smile and unassuming
manner presage a bright future in Electrical Engineering at Pittsburgh.
If you want to know anything, ask George
He will invariably lay aside whatever he may be
doing, get to the bottom of the difficulty, and
clear it up with a lucidity which rivals that of
most professors. It is said that he possesses real
musical talent and has devoted considerable time
to technology (of the banjo) . George is another leading Electrical. We have no doubt that
he will be successful in his chosen profession.
Electrical '30. Ted has shown, in his four
years with Science '30, a well balanced combination of scolastic. athletic and executive ability.
A few of his roles are: winner of a University
scholarship: a star runner for his class in the
Arts '20 Relay for three years; a holder of several
important offices in Science '30 and the students'
branch of the F I C. His genial personality
and peppy enthusiasm are certain to complement
his abilities and insure success. Ted intends to
return to Hamilton.

Faculty of Geology. Mat, formerly a member
of Science '28, was forced through illness to
leave his studies for two years. After a prolonged convalescence he joined us in Science '30.
Mat's scholastic ability and fine character have
won him the esteem and friendship of his fellow
students and professors. He is quiet and unassuming, and, as might be expected, has that
faculty of marshalling facts into orderly and precise arrangement. As a Consulting Geologist
Mat should excel.
Most of us know very little of Stu . which
is a pity. We know him as a good student, and
as an even better and certainly more ardent bridge
player. The trials of two summers spent on the
Stikine river have left him unshaken in his
belief in Geology as a profession. His weak
nesses are tea and bridge; while his strong points
are a hearty laugh and a deep insight into the
psychology of professors at exam   time.
Clare claims Ottawa for his home town and
maintains that he has never had enough money
to get back As a mineral breaker he spends his
summers with the Geological Survey where he

be found in the draughting room—singing,

Bill is forsaking us for the East.
Electrical Engineering is Eddie's specialty, and
if past records arc any indication of future success he has a brilliant career before him. An
honor man in his Fourth year, he has reached
his Fifth year without a "supp." which is in
itself an achievement. For some inconceivable
reason Eddie prefers to spend a twenty-fourth
of his life on the West Vancouver ferry. However, he finds time to engage in track and tennis.

will migrate to Rhodesia, where for three years
he will be able to enjoy big game hunting along
with his chosen profession of Geology.
Auds. appeared fresh from Victoria College in
1926, and proceeded to divide his interests
among Ice Hockey, Canadian Rugby, Chemical
Engineering and the Office. He spends the
summer at the wheel of stages and the winter
coaxing the De Soto. He has some vocal talent
and might come in useful on a deep sea liner
as a spare fog horn Auds. is a firm believer in
the pull theory of getting on in the world, and
should find his breezy personality useful in the

Otherwise "Chesty Violet," is a native of
Cranbrook. Chester entered the University in
1925 with Arts '29 in those days when the
Library was a barren waste of checkered floor.
He joined Science '30 the next year, and has
since become one of the chosen few, busily engaged in chasing sine waves. His chief interests
are dancing, his pipe (known to his associates
by other names), and the cultivation of a vague
shadow on his upper lip.
Bill hails from Kimberley, where men are
hard-rock men. Being a double course man, he
is one of the remaining few who remember Fair-

TN order to show that the members of Science '32 are useful in
-*- other ways than as racks for red bowler hats, we wish to mention a few of the attainments of our small, and, owing to the rigors
of various Christmas examinations, very selected circle.
Though only about fifty in number, we flatter ourselves that
we do our share in holding up the name and fame of the University.
Science '32 is outstanding in athletics. Playing on friend Camozzi's

Carey, our one and only red-headed Hibernian, was the track star,
while Barratt, Kelly and Nixon on the McKechnie Cup squad,

are members of the Rowing Club, of which Madeley is the guiding
genius. Holmes directs the destiny of the Badminton Club. With
our usual optimism we entered Carey, J. Y. Smith, Don Smith and
Rossiter in the Road Race, but somehow didn't manage to take first
place. However, we may console ourselves with the thought that
three cups for track came to our class last year, one of these being
the Governor's trophy.
In order to encourage inter-class competition, in the hope that
we may add yet another bauble to our collection, Science '32 is making arrangements to present a cup for inter-class basketball.
That we are not unmindful of the cultural and social side of

to unite with our older brethren of '30 and '31 in giving our usual
successful party.

The Class History of Agriculture '30
HPHE history of the class has been marked by numerical fluctua-
* tions. In September, 1926, seventeen youthful enthusiasts
gathered together from all corners of the Province. They were
intent on high honors in class and complete participation in the
athletic and social life of the campus. History shows that these
laudable ambitions have been attained.
Two of the seventeen fell by the wayside via Xmas exams
(but to our credit be it said that they were both "repeaters"), and
when we were re-united after the summer of '27, many failed to
return, whether as the result of exams or of personal desires we never
knew. Our number was brought to nine by the addition of two
Artsmen who had seen the light during their Freshman year, and
we proceeded on our way to fame and fortune.
The fall of '27 saw the advent of two from Agriculture '29
who had stayed out for a year, earning enough to carry on, but our
number was still nine, for two of the original class stayed out to
do the same as the newcomers.
We are closing our Undergraduate days with nine, of which
number only four are members of the original class, and we now
include one who has been out for three years.
Our athletic activities have been varied and many, the more
remarkable when one thinks of our numbers. English and Canadian Rugby, Soccer, Grass Hockey and Swimming Clubs have names
of our members inscribed in their Rolls of Fame, and each year has
seen some of us on the Aggie Relay team.
Other Universities have bowed before the prowess of the class
on several occasions at Portland, and one member has twice demonstrated her superiority in the Live Stock field.
We do not wish to appear boastful, but we feel that we can
be justly proud of our academic, athletic and social achievements, and
all have four memorable years to which we will always be able to
return in memory with pleasure. It is our greatest hope that in the
future the class will be as united as it is at present, and that the
many friendships that we have formed at Varsity will be lasting.
We have been busy mixing ingredients since we first appeared
on the Campus, but "the proof of the pudding is in the eating," and
we feel that the Agricultural industry of the Province has a delectable
treat in store.

Lyall is a Poultry specialist from Cloverdale.
While the scientific study of Poultry is his
hobby, he has not allowed this to absorb all
of his time at Varsity. In his Sophomore year,
he was the secretary of his class, and for his interest in inter-class debates was elected secretary
of the Agriculture Discussion Club for his
Junior year. His athletic activities included
Grass Hockey and relay racing, and he has
always proved a reliable team-mate.
In his first two years Fred played English
Rugby, and then changed to the "Big Four"
Canadian Rugby team. His executive ability has
been shown in numerous offices: as a freshman,
secretary treasurer of Aggie '30; as a sophomore,
vice-president of the Agriculture Undergraduate
Society; as a junior, treasurer of the same society, and as a senior, president of Aggie '30.
Fred won a gold headed cane and silver medal at
Portland for judging livestock, and he has managed consistently to make high academic averages.
Starting his University career as an Artsman,
"Nev." changed to Agriculture, joining the class
of '30 in its Sophomore year. He is specializing
in plant pathology, has participated in interclass debating, and is a member of the Biological
Discussion Club. "Nev." is also a Badminton
enthusiast. His many outstanding qualities have
been hidden behind his retiring personality.
Ernie started his Varsity career with Arts '29
at Victoria College. After staying out one year
he came to U.B.C. as an "Aggie" and is now
an Agronomist. Ernie not only takes honors
in exams, but is a very versatile athlete. He is
well known in diving, swimming, track and Big
Four Rugby. He is also on the executive of the
Agriculture Club, and has taken part in several
interclass  debates.

We cannot close our History without expressing our sincere
thanks to Dean F. M. Clement and to Prof. R. L. Davis, who has
been our Honorary President from the start, and also to all the professors who have taken great pains to instruct us; to these we owe
a debt which we hope to repay by proving ourselves worthy disciples
and exponents of the Science of Agriculture.

ZX GRICULTURE '31 started the 1929-30 session very much depleted in numbers, only eleven of the original class returning.
But in spite of this it has not failed to maintain its enviable reputation of being one of the best classes on the campus. The class
has played an important part in the Agriculture Discussion Club,
and also helped on the Portland Stock Judging team. The greatest
achievement of the class has been in the field of debating. Last
Spring we won the shield for the inter-class debates, and will this
year also furnish a strong team. To a certain extent the class has
divided, the different members now having chosen the departments
in which they intend to major. Poultry and Dairying are the
favorites, although Economics and Animal Husbandry are also
represented; one member has been exclusive and has chosen Plant

TTHE leadership of Honorary President, Professor H. M. King;
A President, Waldo Rogers; Vice-President, Bill Osborne; Secretary-Treasurer, Bill Whimster, enabled the Agriculture freshmen
to complete a successful and memorable first year. The famous
Aggies have attracted recruits from the "four-quarters": "Echoes
of the Mexican Revolution" in the person of Ritchie; representatives
from India, China and Russia, a few from "up the line," and the
odd "back to the land" member from our own "Metropolis." Even
a few Arts "grads." found their home after Xmas.
This Freshman class has upheld the Aggie tradition of wholehearted participation in student activities: Rogers and Whimster as
members of the Players' Club; Len Norman as our standard bearer
on the track; "It's the last straw that breaks the camel's back,"
says Bill Osborne, our representative in the Outdoors Club. There
is a lOO^r membership in the Agriculture Club, where such weighty
matters as "Whether the egg or the hen came first," are debated. The

An intermediate session of two years hospital

Mainspring of the Teaching and Supervision

how to read and write. She has proved her
ability in Grass Hockey and Badminton, and has
been both athletic and literary representative of
the Nurses' Undergraduate Society. Quite frequently she is seen making Cooke's tours of the
Library and Science buildings. A friend to all,
she is especially fond of the Indians at Alert Bay.
Grace,—just another fair one gone astray in
the noble profession. School nursing is Grace's
ambition, but in other fields she has shown herself a splendid nurse. She revels in motor mechanics and public speaking and in spite of "late

Possessed of unlimited energy, as evinced by

degree course. She is noted for having taught
the skeleton the "Breakaway." Expounding is
her favorite pastime—leave her alone and she'll

Education '30
nrHERE must of necessity be an atmosphere of intense earnestness
and serious dignity about a class composed entirely of graduates.
When these graduates are preparing to undertake the education of
the youth of the Province, are preparing to supply moral, cultural,
vocational guidance and inspiration to the same youth, the result is
almost awe-inspiring. However, we have reason to be thankful
that a large proportion of Education '30 refused to be so awed, and
by holding fast to a sorely tried sense of humor, retained some
semblance to common humanity. The session's work has given us
some interesting experiences. The five weeks of practice teaching,
particularly, seemed to develop qualities of patience and long-suffering which will prove to be valuable in our subsequent careers.
In between these endeavors, time was found for organization
as a class. Professor Black was chosen as Honorary President;
Gaundry Phillips as President; Gerry Whitaker as Vice-President:
Norman Clark as Treasurer; and Mary Watts as Secretary. A hike
in West Vancouver ending with tea at the Ambleside Inn was held
to mitigate the strains of the first teaching week. Later in the term,
about thirty-five of the sixty-five in the class had supper at Welch's
and then went on together to "Journey's End." Plans are under
way for a final fling in the Spring term before we become full-fledged
school marms and masters.

The Anglican Theological College
'"THE College property has been greatly improved during the year
by the planting of hedges, trees and shrubs.    Much of the work
involved was done voluntarily by the students.
The College maintains its interest in the general activities of
the University. The Principal is an active member of the Senate
and the Faculty Association. The students are represented in the
Soccer, Track and Grass Hockey teams, the Players' Club, the
Musical Society and the Class executives.
The Literary and Athletic Association continues to develop
public speaking and athletics. A silver cup has been presented for
annual competition in public speech. Seven silver cups have been
presented for annual competition in sports. The first annual Field
Day was held in November. The first annual Oratorical Contest
was held in February. The College has a Soccer team and is well
represented on both the Varsity and U.B.C. Grass Hockey teams.
Among the many gifts received during the year was a new
organ for the chapel.

The Union Theological College
T TNDER the leadership of Principal Brown and with the kindly
^ counsel of Dean Sanford, Union College has become more firmly
established during the past year, not only as a progressive and scholarly institution for the training of Theological students, but also as
an ideal home for University men. The residents have enjoyed all
the advantages which dormitory life has to contribute, and as a
result their years spent at U. B. C. will be richer with memories of
intimate fellowship and good times together.
Drawn from all faculties, Union College men have made their
influence felt in every form of activity at the University. The
athletic teams—rugby, ice hockey, swimming and track—have all
used Union College material in their competitions. The Musical
Society has drawn heavily from the ranks of Union College men.
The Players' Club have to their credit the discovery of the dramatic
potentialities latent in the young lives of Gibson and Lendrum. The
Debating Society also acted wisely in choosing the former as a contestant in the Inter-Varsity debate between Saskatchewan and B. C.
Many an afternoon when study was out of the question, Soccer
games were keenly contested by the Theological and non-Theological residents of the college. While in the zero after-supper hour,
strains from the chamber-music of the college string trio floated
up through the corridors of the building and dispelled the fatigue
of long hours spent in the afternoon labs, and lecture rooms.
Foremost among the privileges enjoyed by the Unionites has
been their close association with the residents of the Anglican Theological College. Evenings spent together in one or other of the
two colleges have revealed a remarkably wide and varied ability on
the part of the inmates to entertain in the fields of elocution, drama
and music. The Soccer games and track meet between the Anglican
and United Church theologians have become a regular institution
and are serving as a healthful and effective outlet for the only rivalry
which exists between the two colleges.

Mr. Dunbar obtained his degree at McGill
and McMaster, so we don't know many secrets
about his college life, except that he must have
used his time to good advantage for he graduated with honors in Classics, and upheld the
honor of McGill on the Soccer field. After
graduating he answered the call of the West, and
taught school for a number of years at Esqui-
malt. Anyox, Fernie. and in the Fraser Valley.
Realizing the error of his ways, he repented and
is now  graduating in  Theology.
Here's Evan (Arts '27). that big. genial,
fuzzy haired Irishman, answer to a maiden's
prayer. He is blessed with a rich bass voice,
sincere love for music, and a life full of profound experience. He is a sailor of almost
every sea ("guest" of the C. G. M. M. and
C.P.R.) , traveller of the length and breadth of
Canada, fisherman, hunter, story-teller, relay-
racer. Soccer player, golfer, song leader, student
and popular president of the S. C. M. That he
is to be a minister is perfectly natural and inevitable.
With the graduation of Francis Henry Stevens,
whose outstanding characteristic is red hair,
there passes from our ranks one of our best
students. During his university career he
achieved the Royal Institution Scholarship, the
Shaw Memorial Scholarship, and graduated in
'27 with first class honors in Philosophy. In
Theology he was awarded the Miss Cochrane
Scholarship and the Willard Kitchen Scholarship.
He has twice captured the first prize in the
Oration Contest. As president of the Theo
logical Students' Society he has proved himself
worthy and efficient.

in March. A new club, the Victoria College Christian Union, has
been formed, and holds regular weekly meetings.
The Annual Staff has been appointed, and is already engaged
upon the production of the College Annual.
The athletic teams have so far made a good showing. The
Women's Grass Hockey team is exceptionally strong and has not
yet been defeated. They beat the invading Varsity team by 4 goals
to 2. The Women's Basketball team, although not entered in the
local league has played several games, and managed to defeat the
Varsity women's team during the Invasion. The men's Rugby
fifteen, built around a nucleus of last year's British Columbia championship team, has so far not been beaten or scored against in the
local Intermediate League, and drew with Varsity with neither side
scoring. The men's Basketball team has been fairly successful in
its league and still stands a chance of tying for first place.
A men's Soccer team was organized late in the First term, and
played its first game against Varsity during the Invasion, the result
being a draw. The men's Golf team, also late in organizing, defeated the Varsity team sent over on the Invasion.
At the present time the formation of an Ice Hockey team is
under consideration.
All in all, the College, with its record enrollment, may feel well
satisfied with the successes which it has so far achieved.

The Students' Council
HTHE "Totem" Staff, a part of the "Pub." Board, has asked us to
1 write up ourselves. A grand concession, magnanimous in the
extreme. But we are not going to defend ourselves against the
assaults of the past year—we "stand on our attainment," such as it
is. This is a purely unbiased account of ourselves. As usual the
Damoclian sword of a post-seasonal deficit has been hanging over
the heads of each member, with an especially thin thread suspending
the one over the Scotch head of the Treasurer. And the five hundred
dollars donated by the Lieutenant Governor and the five hundred
from the Alumni for gym equipment, weren't his hands itching to
get at it!
The Alma Mater meeting is over so we are not going to talk
shop here. What of the lighter side. Last year the only blow-out
Council had as a group consisted of a visit to Chinatown. This
year, having two members of the Players' Club and being of a superior type, generally, we all went down to attend a Shakespearian
play, "Much Ado About Nothing", as a matter of fact. It wasn't
just right, (now was it?) for the Treasurer and the Junior Member
to play tag and shout on the sidewalk in front of the theatre.
To the uninitiated the personnel of the Council may be
The example in virtue, good humor and moral rectitude was
furnished by our beloved President of the Women's Undergrad. Her
stern duty by her office was that of suppressing all desires in the
hearts of the co-eds to assert their precious rights in concerting with
Lady Nicotine; she even shows by her countenance that this is one
of the things she doesn't like the men to do. We often wonder
whether it was ovVing to her strong loyalty towards the Council,
or her zeal in the defence of women's rights, that she never missed a
meeting. We hope that future Councils will be as lucky as we
were in having one like Elaine among them.
The breezy energy of the President of Women's Athletics saved
many a protracted meeting from lapsing into a state of lethargy.
She even thought, one evening, that she would have similar success
with the student body when she shouted, "I wanna n'Alma Mater
meeting." Thelma's ability in dissolving all objections directed at
her schemes by hard boiled councillors was equally well illustrated
in the way she handled the mammoth tea-fight at the Gymnasium

System. This includes the issuing, receiving, and storing of athletic
equipment. As in previous years, a stock of gowns, crests, pennants,
and sweaters is carried. Further, it has extended sales to aid, particularly, in supplying athletes with equipment not furnished by
the Alma Mater Society, at great savings.
The Manager System has been given a trial for the first time
this year. Some difficulties naturally arise in the installation and
operation of such a system but, in spite of these, the new system
has proved a great success and its future is assured.

opening. "Good old Thelma" will be the phrase that will come
to mind when we remember her in the future.
For speed and dynamic energy the Secretary was noted. She
rushed through her lunch, hurried to the meetings, dashed down the
minutes, and sometimes skipped off at eight o'clock in response to
a lone auto horn serenading outside, leaving the much harassed
Junior Member to record the stupendous decisions of the diminished
body. Her volatile personality was often responsible for enlivening
the would-be serious deliberations, and her past executive experience
often helped to put Council wise to certain things that the L.S.E.
was trying to pass over lightly.
We are sure that the President's ability to keep peace between
more temperamental peoples will some day win him a seat on the
League of Nations. According to the "Ubyssey," Russ has been
known to say, "I don't have a darn thing to say on Council." We
have not found this to be so, for after a long time spent in regarding
the smoke curl up from his pipe, he is known to burst forth with
the most surprising ideas, sometimes rather too prevocative of
laughter for one in so exalted a position. Two years on Council
and Russ has lost none of his ideals, and what is more important,
none of his good judgment.
Doug could present a case with not one word wasted.    "Moved
by Macdonald " and there you are.    His name gets into all the
motions and we are inclined to believe that if it wasn't for him
there would be no motions at all. In spite of other Councillors'
attempts to squash him, he remains full of energy, speed and clear
ideas. Doug has had inspirations on athletics, debates, parties and
track meets, and they have nearly all been as brilliant as his master
movement that all Council meetings end at 9:30 o'clock.
"Hutch" has been full of an astonishing number of jokes for
one as forbidding as a Treasurer. An advocate of all things British,
he really can understand our co-operation with the country to the
south of us; which is another remarkable thing about him. His
knowledge of the "why" and especially the "where" of shekels is
amazing in one so young, but then that is a racial characteristic of
those from the country of the plaid.
Jimmy Dunn was always calm and collected, and we all expressed our regret at his resignation.    As he is a philosopher his

language was often obscure, but he always wrote his motions down
before reading them, and after the third reading even the dullest of
us could vote feeling assured that we understood what he was
driving at.
Charlie Schultz replaced Jim on the Council, and, in the two
meetings that he has been with us, he has shown himself an energetic
and enthusiastic President of Men's Athletics. The capable way
in which he has taken hold in the middle of the year indicates just
how fortunate the Men's Athletic Association are in having such a
man as Charlie at their head. We do not know much about Charlie
yet, but we do know that when he starts something it goes with a
bang and is finished with success.
Charlie Brazier has borne up well under the burden of the
L.S.E. He made a reality, which we hope will be repeated next
year, out of the old myth of the Washington Glee Singers. Charlie
has had a great deal of complicated matters to arrange, especially
that of convincing the Players' Club and the Musical Society that
requisitions are now a necessary part of a university student's daily
life.    And Charlie really has a clear head and good judgment.
Eric, the office boy—excuse me, the Junior Member, has been
very efficient in keeping the offices clean. Empty milk bottles and
apple cores which have been lodged on the table for a week are a
thing of the past—even all the paper finds its way to the waste
basket. In spite of his over association with the Freshman class
during October, Eric remains on friendly terms with them, as he
does, in fact, with nearly everyone. We all hope his weekly juggling
of the rooms and dates will not make him prematurely grey.

The Publications Board
By R. A. P.
HTHE Publications Board contribution to this annual Book of
■*• Revelation is no doubt, read eagerly by those who are interested
in what makes the wheels go round in the "Pub" office.
On the whole, the year has been uneventful. No "Frat Question" or C. O. T. C. dispute arose to rock the equanimity of the
University. The pastime of baiting the Students' Council furnished
little amusement, student apathy soon grew stale as a target for
editorial aphorisms and a sweet necropolitan silence brooded over the
As regards the staff, the Editor-in-Chief, having been inflicted
with the onus of compiling this dissertation, claims the privilege of
being spared the disillusionment of self-analysis.
The Senior Editors, the backbone of the Pub, reign as hardworking queens of the copy-desk. Phyllis Freeman, in charge of
the Tuesday edition, shows a decided knack in keeping people at
work, and can instruct a new assistant, compel conversational associates to write heads and set up the front page at the same time.
She is also an adept at the indispensable art of writing virulent editorials at a moment's notice.
Jean Woodworth carries on the work of the Friday issue amid
picnic-like scenes, having the habit of providing large quantities of
cinnamon buns and cookies for the sustenance of the staff. That
this system is effective is evidenced by the unvarying high quality
of her edition. She furnishes most of the "constructive" criticism
of the editorial column.
Sorting out daily a bewildering squadron of multitudinous
reporters, Himie Koshevoy, News Manager, carries on the never-
ceasing task of assigning a scribe to each and every campus event.
Add to this the patriarchal duties of training aspiring journalists,
the trailing of possible stories, the wringing of a fair share of complimentary tickets from the grasp of the Editor-in-Chief and the
composition of frequent "Muck-a-muck" articles and you have
some idea of the life of a News Manager.
Ronald Grantham alternates the poetical idealism of Literary
Editor with the matter of fact duties of Associate Editor. He is
the source of the rest of the "constructive" editorials and is a most
pains-taking writer of head-lines. Sole overlord of the Literarv
Supplement, he is the chosen undergraduate representative of the

^  claims an individuality of its own, perhaps because its members
were the first to decipher the weird revelations of the graduating
class, and will be haunted henceforth by "winning smiles" and other
seniorial sentimentalities.
In charge of the entire task of compiling the "Totem" was
Bessie Robertson. While outwardly maintaining a dignity befitting
her position, she covertly encouraged her hilarious handmaidens in
their festive proclivities, though at times wild screams issuing from
the "sacred precincts" seemed to denote that the staff was being
Doris Barton, chief peruser of the sport write-ups, has demonstrated her efficiency as a critic of copious copy, and has poked
optimistically at the typewriter to transform illegible reports into
fit material for the printer's hands.
Kathleen Murray, the only well-behaved member of the staff,
took her share in editing personal and club write-ups, and has become famous as an accurate reader of monotonous galley proofs.
Cecilia Long, the self-styled "miscellaneous editor," edited
much copy, but found galley proofs her chief bore. At all times
she amused the rest of the staff, and superintended the spasmodic
eviction of persistent loafers from the Annual Office.

DY a concerted "pavement-pounding" campaign, the business
■^ management of the Publications Board has succeeded in rounding up an unprecedented number of wayward merchant advertisers
this year.
Byron Edwards, business manager, has never been known by
his fellow workers, to lose his phenomenal placidity during his
triple business worries—the "Ubyssey," the "Totem" and the
Handbook. When affairs were most troublesome Byron sought
solace in the "ever-ready" pipe.

"Ubyssey" among eighteen hundred milling students, and appeasing
advertisers who complained that they had not received their copy.

the responsibility. Since then Bill has been Jack Fox's right hand
man in the advertising department.

Editor on the Tuesday edition, she spends most of her time in the
vain search for a four letter synonym for "badminton players."
The third member of the triarchy of Associates is Edgar Brown.
Edgar has a weakness for submitting editorials on international
relations, but makes up for it by actually volunteering for duty.
He specializes in writing original heads and coining new words.
This session the "Pub" has been blessed with two successive
Sports Editors. Fred Hems worth carried on during the First term
until stress of work compelled him to abandon the happy loafing
grounds of the "Pub." His principle worry was the fact that a six
hour a day Science course left little scope for a conscientious journalist. With the appointment of "Mac" McGregor as Fred's successor the "Pub" became a rendezvous for Soccer fans. Mac is a
fervent sportorial writer and his journalistic zeal is even equal to
the task of revising Women's Grass Hockey reports.
Marj McKay, harassed Exchange Editor, is faced with the task
of supplying thousands of words of exchange items at a moment's
notice. Her chief ambition is to live to see a pair of "Pub"
scissors and to convince the Sports Editor of the importance of
Grass Hockey.
Assistant Editors, the people who do the dirty work, number
three. Nick Mussallem is a faithful reader of page-proofs and feels
uneasy until he has found at least three mistakes per page. Margaret
Creelman takes galley proof-reading philosophically and is never
daunted by the yards of proofs passed on to her by the Seniors.
Mike Freeman learned patience by reporting Council meetings and
is the stand-by when important last-minute assignments are being
handed out.
Among the reporters, Eric Huskins, Janet Hughes, Jean Mc-
Diarmid, Olive Selfe, and J. W. Lee have been outstanding. Others
doing good work are Mairi Dingwall, Frances Lucas, Belle Mc-
Gauley, Isabel Bescoby, R. Locke, D. Davidson, J. Hammett,
Mollie Jordan, Margaret Jenkinson, Art McKenzie, Dorothea
Lundell, V. J. Southey, Margaret Clarke, Katherine Butler, G.
Root, Bunny Pound, G. Hamlin, Alice Rowe and P. Gelin.
Campus-Comber, the desultory columnist, has continued to
disseminate his philosophy under the mystery of a pseudonym and
was joined in the second term by a colleague, the "Misogynist."
Among the many mascots who persistently decorate the "Pub"
radiators, St. John Madeley, May Christison and Laurence Meredith
must be mentioned, being veteran publicans in the days gone by.

The Literary and Scientific Executive
HTHE Literary and Scientific Executive has, this year, devoted the
-*• greater part of its activities to the three major clubs, the Players'
Club, the Musical Society, and the Debating Union. During the
year it approved and adopted the constitutions of two new clubs,
the Scrap Book Club, and the Home Economics Club.
During the early part of the year, friction occurred between
the Debating Union and the governing body. An agreeable solution
was quickly reached, however, and relations with the Debating
Union have reached an unusually high level.
The executive has been instrumental in securing speakers for
noon hour lectures, and also helped to arrange the visit of the University of Washington Glee Club, in its performance last January.
The officers wish the executive of 1930-31 the greatest success
for the coming year.
The Chemistry Society
HTHE Chemistry Society, one of the oldest societies on the
A campus, was formed in 1916 for the purpose of fostering interest
in subjects of a scientific nature amongst the students of the University. Since that time several other scientific clubs have been
organized for those interested in other branches of science, so now
the Chemistry Society confines its topics of discussion to the field
of Chemistry.
The Society was fortunate in securing as the first speaker of
the year, Dr. Hopkins, Head of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Illinois. It was when working under him
that Dr. Harris discovered "Element 61." Dr. Hopkins spoke on
"Chemistry as a Science, New and Old." Other open meetings have
been addressed by Dr. Blythe Eagles who spoke on "Recent Advances in Biochemistry," Dr. Marshall on "Surface Chemistry,"
Dr. Clark on "Chemistry in Medicine," and Dr. Seyer on "The
Radioactivity of the Alkali Metals."
Before the end of the term the Society plans an innovation in
the form of an open meeting at which each student doing research
work in Chemistry will give a short account of the particular piece
of research work which he is doing.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Dr.
Archibald; President, Reg. Archibald; Vice-President, Jack Conlan;
Secretary, Basil Bailey; Treasurer, Desmond Beall.

At the first meeting of the Fall term, Dr. C. McLean Fraser,
the Honorary President, gave a talk on his trip to Java. Two weeks
later Ross Whittaker gave a paper on "Salmon Tagging." "Some
Practical Applications of Genetics in Poultry" was the subject chosen
by W. Roach for his paper.
The last meeting of the Fall term clashed with a meeting of

"The Housefly"; Mr. Hugh Leach, "A Day's Collecting"; Mr. J. W.

accent and the attainment of greater fluency in conversation, the
programs have consisted mainly of readings, acting of scenes from
French plays, games, songs, and conversation in which everyone
participated. In planning and carrying out the programs we have
been greatly assisted by our Honorary President, M. Delavault,
who has given us much time and assistance.

The Letters Club
"VTINE well-written papers were delivered to the Letters Club this
■*■ ^ year, the majority of them being on literary figures of the
modern period. James Elroy Flacker was well interpreted by William Robbins. Sydney Risk's "Gordon Craig and the New Theatre"
provoked much discussion. Jean Woodworth gave thorough consideration to the life and work of Maurice Hewlett. "The Japanese
Lyric," by Carol Coates, was a delightful excursion into the poetry
of Japan.
In the second term Barbara Felton gave a whimsical but
thorough paper on "The Ingoldsby Legends." Roy Daniells discussed the outstanding young modern poet, Humbert Wolfe; and
Dorothy Pound reviewed the inimitable A. A. Milne. W. H. Hudson was capably dealt with by Kathleen Mathers, and Eugene
Cassidy's "Mysticism in Modern English Poetry" was treated with
insight and understanding.
Original contributions evening proved very successful. Poetry
predominated among the many compositions read, and a short
comedy, written by one of the members, was performed.
The officers for the year were: Honorary President and Critic,
Dr. F. C. Walker; President, Roy Daniells; Secretary-Treasurer,
Carol Coates.
The Art Club
'"THOUGH the Art Club is one of the younger organizations on
A the campus, it has been quite active in fostering the various
branches of art during the past year. Due to the enthusiastic assistance of the Honorary President, Mr. Ridington, classes in sketching
have been started and some creditable work has been accomplished.
Among the talks by outside speakers, that given by Professor
Boving, on Scandinavian Art, was particularly interesting. Mr.
Boving rounded out his discussion with a display of prints showing
beautiful paintings and groups of statuary by Norse artists. President Klinck very kindly exhibited his collection of reproductions of
old Italian Masters. Other speakers on art included Mr. Scott of
the Art School and Mr. Brooks.
The executive of the Club for this year is: Honorary President,
Mr. J. Ridington; President, Mills Winram; Vice-President, Phyllis
White; Secretary, Grace Adams; Treasurer, Robert Brooks.
Page One Hundred  and   I hrii The Scrap Book Club
HTHE Scrap Book Club, although still an infant with an age
A of only one term, has been set safely on the road to achievement
and usefulness. The beginning of the session saw the old Women's
Literary Society breathing its last. In accordance with the old
customs, the executive formed a program consisting of addresses by
non-faculty women. These included one by Miss Bates on "A
Practical Account of a Librarian's Work," Miss Edwards on "Business Opportunities for Women"; and Miss Holland on "Social
Service Work." Late in the term the executive felt that a change
was necessary and so a new constitution was drawn up to take effect
immediately after Christmas.
With a selected membership of thirty, the work of the Club
is now proceeding quickly and with great advantage to the members.
The programs consist of impromptu debating and public speaking,
reading of plays and papers, criticism and discussion of the same and
other literary pursuits. One of the most interesting meetings consisted of a quick debate on the subject "Resolved that it is better to
have loved and lost than never to have loved at all," and a detailed
discussion of "Strange Interlude." Occasionally members of the
Club are sent to leading plays with expenses paid, and afterwards
are forced to pay for their ticket by giving a report.
The executive who spelled death to the former Lit. and who
initiated the Scrap Book Club are: Honorary President, Dean Bollert; President, Isabel Dee; Vice-President, Marjorie McKay; Secretary, Isabel Bescoby. The Club feels especially indebted to Dean
Bollert who has assisted greatly in the formation of the Society.
The Household Science Club
HTHE Household Science Club has recently been organized for the
-*■ purpose of emphasizing the need of the Home Economics
Course on the campus. Through this Club the girls preparing for Home Economics have become acquainted and have
made plans to appeal for the extension of the present course.
The officers for the session are: Honorary President, Dean
Bollert; President, Mary Matheson; Vice-President, Marion Shelley;
Secretary, Mary Fallis.

'"THE aim of the Student Christian Movement is to bring together
A students of varying opinions who are seeking to work out a
comprehensive and satisfying view of life, together with those who
are willing to test the conviction that "in Jesus Christ are to be
found the supreme revelation of God and the means to the full
realization of life."
The National Movement is affiliated with the World Student
Christian Federation with its membership of 300,000 students in
3,000 colleges all over the world.
Outstanding amongst the local events of the year have been:
first, the visits of Murray Brooks, the General Secretary, of Harry
Avison, the Western Secretary, and the meeting with Dr. John R.
Mott, founder of the International Federation; second, the summer
Jasper conference of the Western Universities attended by six U.B.C.
delegates who afterwards drew up and circulated a detailed report;
and third, the formation of a graduate U.B.C. group.
Among the activities of the local movement have been four
weekly study groups and a series of six evening meetings. The four
week-end conferences at Copper Cove and the annual Spring camp
have been splendidly attended.
The executive for the session has been: President, Frank McKenzie; Vice-Presidents, Margaret Muirhead and Robert McLarty;

The new Club has helped greatly to arouse, once more, that
keen enthusiasm among the students of Agriculture which, for

wandered from the "Canadian Banking System" to the "Role of
Fascism in Italy." The decision to ask outside speakers to address
the meeting has not prevented those within the Society from giving
their views on social and political questions. On many occasions
the discussions have been very heated and lasted far into the night.
Much of the genuine interest manifested in the Club has no
doubt been due to the able men who have spoken at the meetings.
Amongst them have been Mr. Alex Manson, former Attorney-General of B.C.; Hon. Leon Ladner, M.P., Mr. Mukovsky, Major
Scudamore, Mr. Stickney, Secretary of the Vancouver Harbor
Board; and Mr. Murrin, President of the B.C.E.R. In securing
such representative people the Society has not only been of benefit to
its members, but has also drawn the attention of the public to the
serious attitude of many of the students towards modern problems.
The executive for the year has been: Honorary President, Dr.
T. H. Boggs; President, Cameron Kirby; Vice-President, Bernard
Tobin; Secretary-Treasurer, Helen Smith.
Der Deutsche Verein
T TNDER the capable direction of its executive, "Der Deutsche
Verein" has had a very successful year. The principle of furthering the knowledge and interest of students in German language
and literature has been adhered to. With a view to carrying out this
policy, German folk-songs have been sung at each meeting and a
number of lively games played. Of much interest have been a number of talks, greatly enjoyed by the members, especially those on the
art, music and beauty spots of Germany.
The executive for the year consisted of: Honorary President,
Dr. Isabel Mclnnes; Honorary Vice-President, Miss Joyce Hallamore; President, Letitia Hay; Vice-President, Constance Holmes:
Secretary-Treasurer, Thelma Johnson.
Pane   One  Hundred  and   Ten The Menorah Society
T> EORGANIZING late in October, the Menorah Society followed
■^ its former policy of having discussions on the different phases
of Jewish life and problems concerning Jewish life in Europe and
America. Meetings were held at the homes of members, instead
of the method of holding them in the Community Centre as was
done last year.
The subjects on which addresses were given dealt with the
growth of the Menorah and book reviews and Zionist political
groups. Dr. S. Petersky spoke on the "Advance of the Menorah";
Joshua Jacobs gave an interesting talk on Palestine; David Rome
defined various political aspects; Norman Brown gave a paper on
"The Immortal Adventure."
The University of B. C. Menorah defeated that of Washington
in a debate held at the Community Centre. Vera Peters and Ben.
Tobin represented U.B.C, and again won the Brown Cup for intercollegiate debating.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Norman
Brown; President, Harry Kostman; Vice-President, Alfred Evans;
Secretary-Treasurer, Vera Peters; Reporter, H. Koshevoy.
The Chess Club
"D EING forced to find new quarters at the beginning of the Autumn
*-* term through the robbery of the Upper Common Room, the
Chess Club this year migrated to the new gymnasium. Here, in
more restricted surroundings, the ancient game still goes on.
With a membership of around thirty-five, the usual program
of tournaments, matches and special games was carried out. The
Handicap Tournament was again won by R. A. Pilkington, as was
the Club championship.   The minor tournament fell to Ed Olund.
The feature event of the year, the annual match between
students and faculty, is yet to be played.
An innovation was a series of matches between the Club "C"
team and teams from the Anglican and Union Theological Colleges,
which resulted in a majority of victories for the Club.
The executive for the session was: Honorary President, Dr.
G. S. Shrum; President, J. Clayton; Vice-President, N. Abramson;
Secretary-Treasurer, W. Henniger; Match Captain, R. A. Pilkington; Board Committee, A. McCulloch and R. G. McEachern.

The Mathematics Club
HPHE meetings of the Mathematics Club for the session 1929-30
■*■ have attracted an increasing number of students interested in
the subject. The aim of the Club has been to carry the discussion of
mathematical subjects outside the lecture room, and to bring up
topics not covered in the undergraduate course.
Dr. Nowlan opened the year with a talk on "Abridged Notation," illustrating a number of interesting applications. A paper
on "Oxford Mathematics" was given by Mr. Brand, and one on
"The Historical Development of the Number System of Algebra"
by Mr. Poole. Mr. Richardson contributed an address on "Some
Problems and Their Solutions."
In the Spring term we heard from Mr. James on "Live-Coordinates," and from Mr. Webber on "Matrices and Quaternions."
At the time of writing several papers remain to be given.
The executive for the year consisted of: Honorary President,
Dr. Buchanan; Honorary Vice-Presidents, Dr. Nowlan and Mr.
Richardson; President, C. Webber; Vice-President, G. Smith; Secretary, Margaret Allan.
The Studio Club
HPHE Studio Club held two enjoyable meetings at the residences
A   of members during the first half of the 1929-1930 session, and
had the misfortune to lose both the President, Solomon Fishman,
and Secretary, Vernon Van Sickle, at the end of the first term.
A reorganizing meeting was held early in February at which
Marguerite Boulton and Kathleen Walker were elected President
and Acting Secretary respectively, to act with Messrs. Wilson and
Shaneman as a Committee of four to draw up a program for the
balance of the term.
Miss M. L. Bollert, Honorary President, kindly assisted in
reorganizing the Club.
It is hoped that those with musical talent will come forward
and join the Club. Meetings are held every three weeks at which
lectures on musical topics are given and recitals furnished by the

The Society of Thoth
A S in previous years, the high point in the Society of Thoth's
-** campus activities was the annual Homecoming Ballet. This
session the Royal Egyptian Ballet presented "Anthony and Cleopatra," said by able critics to surpass all previous performances. A
gorgeous chorus of dancing girls, Romans, Egyptian soldiers and
Nubian slaves supported the historic figures of the principal actors
of this new version of Shakespeare's play.
After this brief emergence onto the stage of publicity, the
Scribes forsook the limelight and continued their private round of
meetings, discussions, theatre-parties and initiations, of which the
latter will be long remembered by some. Slight constitutional
amendments inaugurated the new order of "Sages of Thoth"; while
an unusually large number of neophytes were admitted to take the
place of this year's graduates.
The executive included: Grand Scribe, W. G. Smith; Second
Scribe, J. Clayton; Keeper of the Baksheesh, H. Koshevoy; Scribe
of the Papyrus, M. F. McGregor; Torturer-in-Chief, Fabian Underhill; Assistant Torturer, Arthur McCulloch.
The Radio Club
'"THE Radio Club  was organized in January, under the  guid-
-*■   ance of Dr. H. Vickers, head of the departments of Mechanical
and Electrical Engineering.
Weekly meetings have been held at which interesting talks were
given on subjects varying from "The Heaviside Layer," to "Broadcast Station Design."
During the Spring term a trip was made to station CKWX,
where the members and their friends were given an insight into the
operating features of a broadcast station.
It is the aim of the Club to secure, in the near future, a suitable
room, where a short wave transmitter may be installed, and a small
testing laboratory established.
The executive for the year consists of: Honorary President,
Dr. H. Vickers; President, W. R. Beamish; Vice-President, J. Baker;
Secretary, H. P. Wright; Treasurer, J. W. Smith; Equipment, W.
B. Smith.
Page One Hundred and Thirteen The Varsity Christian Union
HTHE V. C. U. reviews with gratitude its growth during the past
A    year.    The membership has increased, a keen spirit of interest
has been shown, and the purpose of the Union has been fulfilled.
The V. C. U. has for its object the proclamation and defence
of the gospel. It seeks to stimulate a desire to know more of God's
will as revealed in the Bible, and emphasizes the need of a closer relationship with God as possible only through the redemption offered
by the Lord Jesus Christ. To such truths it tries to present a well-
rounded witness both spiritual and intellectual.
The most prominent part of the work has been the weekly
meeting addressed by speakers from the city. The object has been
to have competent men speak on subjects of interest and importance
concerning the Christian faith. These meetings have been supplemented by weekly Bible study groups conducted by members of the
V. C .U. Several suppers, followed by discussion, have been held,
to promote fellowship among those interested in such work.
The executive consisted of: President, Robert Birch; Secretary,
Dorothy Hill.
The Physics Club
HTHE Physics Club was organized at the beginning of last
A session for the purpose of interesting students in current developments in Physical Science. To this end open meetings were held
every second Wednesday, when students heard short expositions on
the results of some recent research. Each paper was usually followed
by a general discussion in which the speaker answered questions
asked by the audience. Most of the programs were provided by
students who were allowed to demonstrate apparatus of their own
construction. A student who thus takes an active part in the proceedings of the Club obviously benefits from this experience in public
speaking; while his audience learns something of interest and value.
During the past term there have been eight student addresses and two
from members of the Victoria Astrophysical Observatory.
The executive for the session consisted of: Honorary President,
Dr. Hebb; Honoray Vice-President, Dr. Shrum; President, C. Stedman; Vice-President, A. Young; Secretary-Treasurer, J. Donaldson.

The Students' Section of the Engineering Institute of Canada
has continued to uphold its position as the principal club in Applied
Science. The most successful year which has resulted, has been
due, chiefly, to the keen interest of the members and to the support
given by the Vancouver Branch.
During the Session, weekly meetings have been held at which
prominent engineers from all parts of the country have given papers
on general and technical subjects, embracing the various branches of
the profession. Visits have been made to several industrial plants,
such as The Boeing Aircraft of Canada, The Daily Province, Stave
(Continued   on   P.ige  One   Hundred   and   Sixteen)
Page  One  Hundred and  Fifteen The Engineering Institute of Canada
(Continued   from   Page   One   Hundred   and   Fifteen)
Falls Hydro-Electric Plant, and the Pacific Terminals Refrigeration
Plant at New Westminster.
A student night was held at the end of February, at which
several members of the section presented papers. At the beginning
of the Fall term the second annual dinner was held, and was attended
by some forty members and several prominent engineers who gave
very timeworthy addresses.
The section is much indebted to its Honorary President, Professor W. C. Duckering, and to the executive of the Vancouver
Branch, who have given valuable assistance.
The International Relations Club
HPHE International Relations Club came into being during the
■^ Second term of this session, as an organized attempt by students
interested in international affairs to further inform themselves
through the study and discussion of current world events. The
London Naval Disarmament Conference was chosen as the topic of
this term's meetings.
Two interesting phases of the policy adopted by the Club are
to have meetings centered on the campus and to have as many members as possible take an active part in the preparation for each
discussion. A scholastic standing of at least second class is qualification for membership.
The Club is the second to be formed in Canada under the plan
advanced by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. It
will enjoy advantages through this affiliation such as fortnightly
summaries of international events, a gift of ten books each year,
and possible participation in inter-university conferences.
Professor F. H. Soward has kindly agreed to act as Faculty
Adviser, and in accordance with the Endowment regulations will
assume responsibility for publications received. The 1930 executive includes: President, Thomas S. Barnett; Vice-President, Helen
Boutilier; Secretary-Treasurer, James A. Gibson; Program Committee, Freda Lasser, Leonard Wrinch.

The Debating Union
Montreal   Debate
C   Bn
/^\NE of the most important
^^ accomplishments of the
Debating Union for the year
was the establishment of the
Society on an open membership
basis, and the assumption of
absolute control over debating
in the University. Consequently all debating, both
interclass and intercollegiate, is
now controlled by the Union.
The executive for the year
was: President, Harold Freeman; Vice-President, Kenneth
Logan; Secretary, Alfred
Interclass Debates
In a vigorous attempt to
fight the general decline of debating in the British Empire,
the Union staged one of the most successful interclass debating
tournaments in the history of the U.B.C. For the first time in
many a year the debates were held before capacity audiences. Interclass debating is now one of the outstanding features of campus
life. Much credit is due to Ken
Logan who assumed the duties
of interclass debates manager.
Intercollegiate   Debates
New Zealand: The first
intercollegiate contest of the
year was held in the Fall term
with New Zealand, whose
team was on a prolonged tour
of America. Messrs. F. Morley and J. Dunn upheld the
honor of their Alma Mater,
but were unsuccessful in securing the decision from their
more experienced opponents.
The resolution contested was:

Saskatchewan   Debate
D    Macdonald
W. U. D. L.: According to
the schedule of the Western
Universities Debating League,
U.B.C. this year sent one team
to Saskatoon to meet the University of Saskatchewan, and
engaged in debate with the
University of Alberta here at
Vancouver. The resolution
throughout the League was:
"That total disarmament is
essential to the attainment of
world peace."
The debate at home was the
most largely attended for four
years. Messrs. H. Freeman
and J. Gibson defended U.B.C.
against Alberta, and although
the decision of the judges went
against   them,   their   eloquent
defence will long be remembered in the debating annals of B.C.
Messrs. D. Macdonald and E. Vance travelled to Saskatoon,
but the now proverbial bad luck dogged their trail also, and they
returned without the spoils of victory.
Central Canada: This year
a debate was arranged with a
touring   team    from    Central
Canada,    composed    of    two
representatives  from  Bishop's
College and the University of
Montreal.     Messrs.   F.   Stone
and C.  Brazier,  speaking for
U.B.C, won the only victory
of the season in a brilliant defence  of   womanhood.     The
resolution   was:    "That   this
house deplores the emergence of
woman from the home."

OEORGANIZED during the session 1928-29, the University of
A^ British Columbia Contingent of the Canadian Officers' Training Corps has an enrolment of approximately one hundred, including officers.
During the Christmas holidays, fifty-five cadets and four officers commanded by Lt.-Col. H. T. Logan, attended the unit's
second Camp School at Work Point Barracks, Esquimalt. A seven
day syllabus of elementary training was conducted, commencing December 26, and included practical examinations for thirty-five "A"
and "B" certificate candidates.
In order to foster interest in inter-university rifle competitions,
a rifle association was organized late in January with sixty members.
Sgt. V. J. Dalton and Second Lt. V. J. Southey were appointed
captain and secretary, respectively, to act in co-operation with a
committee consisting of Sgts. T. D. Groves and J. Cumming.
The officers for 1929-30 are: Lt.-Col. H. T. Logan, M.C,
O.C; Maj. A. H. Finlay, M.C; Maj. G. A. Lamont, C.A.M.C;
Capt. G. M. Shrum, M.M.; Lt. G. H. Hare, Q.M.; Lt. D. B. Pollock: Second Lt. J. L. Plant; Second Lt. V. J. Southey. Appointed
instructors from the permanent force are Capt. L. M. Black, M.C,

The Musical Society
T TNDER the direction of Mr. C Haydn Williams, the Musical
^ Society has again had a very successful year. The membership
has been increased to eighty and is divided into a chorus of sixty
and an orchestra of about twenty.
This year at Theatre Night, the Society presented a comic skit,
which was composed locally, called "Exites." Parts were taken by
prominent members of the Society.
A change in the policy of the Society has resulted in an increased interest by both the Faculty and student body. The Society
has sponsored a series of nine noon-hour recitals which have
been very well attended. Among the artists appearing at these
recitals was "The Vancouver Chamber of Music" string quartette,
composed of Messrs. J. P. Harvey, A. Gramm, Will Edmunds, and
Aaron Stankevitch. Another outstanding string ensemble to play
at these recitals was the "Aeolian Trio," composed of Misses
Dorothy McKay, Dorothy Bennett and Eileen Negus. Other well
known Vancouver artists to appear at the recitals included Miss
Marjorie Cornell, Miss K. Lindabury, Mrs. Lyle Telford, Mrs.
Stuart McDiarmid, Miss Kay Baird, Miss Frances McDonald, Mr.
Vernon Van Sickle, Mr. Hutchison, Mr. Alfredo Meunier. These,
as well as Miss Jean Tennant, Mr. Christy Madsen, Mr. Jimmy
Warr and Mr. Max Humphries, members of the Society, make up
a group of musicians to whom the student body is deeply indebted
for their appearances on our stage.
Two complete recitals were also devoted to choral and orchestral numbers by the entire Society.
The Fourteenth Annual Spring Concert this year took the
form of a comic opera, "In the Garden of the Shah," which was
presented on March 7th and 8th. This was a departure from
previous performances, and resulted in an increased attendance as
well as a very enthusiastic reception by the audience.
The principal part was taken by Miss May Boulton, supported by Mr. William Doury. Miss Betty Smith and Mr. McKay
Esler took other leading parts, while Miss V. Rendell, Odin Sostad,
Max Humphries and W. R. Brooks played minor roles.
The cast also included Kay Morris as Oriental dancer and a
chorus of ten women and ten men, supported by a twenty-
piece orchestra under the baton of our director.

The Players' Club
'"THE Players' Club was very fortunate this year in once more secur-
ing Professor F. G. C. Wood as its Honorary President and
director of the Spring play after his absence from the Club for one
year on account of ill health. The very able Advisory Board which
has assisted us so efficiently consisted of Mr. F. G. C. Wood, Mrs.
James Laurence, Dr. F. C. Walker and Mr. E. E. Delavault.
According to their opinion the Club has reached this session a higher
standard than in previous years, and has made the fifteenth year
an outstanding one in the history of the Club. Much credit is due
to the members of the executive. These were: President, Betty
Buckland; Vice-President, Sydney Risk; Treasurer, Ted Clark;
Secretary, Eileen Griffin; and a committee composed of Alice Morrow, St. John Madeley and Alex Smith.
As usual there was a large list of aspirants whose efforts were
judged in the beginning of the Fall term. Some forty were considered worthy of membership. The newly elected members were
welcomed and entertained at the annual reception which this year
was held at the home of Miss Eileen Griffin.
Four plays were presented at the Christmas performances on
November 21, 22, 23, 1929.
The first play, "Atalanta in Wimbledon," by Lord Dunsany,
a comedy with its setting in England, was produced by Mr. E. E.
Delavault with the assistance of one of our talented members, Mr.
Sydney Risk. The cast consisted of Dorothy McKelvie as the young
girl, Cameron Kirby as her father, and Harold Tull as the faithful
old retainer. These three characters were ably supported by John
Coleman, Frank Alpen, Jack McLennan and Basil Bailey, who
played smaller roles.
Much credit is due to Dr. F. C. Walker for the excellent production of the tragedy, "The World Beyond," by L. du Garde Peach.
This play, with its setting in a lonely moorland farmhouse, called
for dramatic acting, and the parts were very cleverly filled by
Elizabeth Magee and Ernest Gilbert. Both Margaret Smythe and
James Gibson sustained their roles very creditably.
Again we have to thank Mrs. F. G. C. Wood for her invaluable
assistance and her excellent production of "The Veil Lifts," by
Essex Dane, a delightful old-fashioned play. The cast was well
selected and consisted of Margaret Sheppard, Mary Darnbrough,

Alma Mater Society. There are two awards both for men
and women. Gold and silver medals are awarded to the men as
first and second prize. The winners of the women's contest are
awarded silver cups.
This year the contest was exceptionally keen. As only four
men and four women are permitted to appear on the final platform,
a preliminary try-out was held. The eight finalists were: Isabel
Bescoby, Idele Wilson, Belle McGauley, Margaret Muirhead, James
Warr, Sidney Semple, Charles Brazier, Harold Freeman.
Miss Muirhead carried off the honors in the women's contest
in a long to be remembered speech on "Ghandi." Miss McGauley
took second place with a speech on "Canada and Pacific Relations."
Mr. Freeman's eloquence on "The Prevention of War" won
for him the much coveted gold medal, while Mr. Brazier's brilliant
satire in his "Hymn to Satan" gave him the silver medal.
The Musical Society
(Continued   from  Page  One  Hundred   and  Twenty-one)
A great deal of credit for this performance goes to Miss Betty
Moore who, as our first student producer, "put the show over."
Miss Frances Reece, as costume convenor, designed and supervised
the making of some thirty costumes used in the production. To
her, also, goes a great deal of the credit for the success of the
The social side of the Society was not neglected, an enjoyable
party being held early in the Fall term at Killarney.
The Society, as well as the student body, realize that the success
of the Society is largely due to the untiring efforts of its director,
Mr. C Hadyn Williams.
This year's executive was composed of: Honorary President,
Dr. W. L. MacDonald; President, W. H. Sparks; Vice-President,
Betty Moore; Secretary, Betty Johnston; Treasurer, E. W. Horton;

The Players' Club
(Continued  from Page One Hundred  jnd Twenty-three)
Angela van Vooght, Betty Wilson, Dorothy Mole, Katherine Lee
and Richard Lendrum.
This year the selection committee chose a farce as the comedy
of the evening and it met with very great success. The play was
admirably directed by Mrs. Laurence, who, incidentally, was a
member of the first Players' Club executive. The cast, which was
well chosen, consisted of: Joseph Hammett, Waldo Rogers, Reg.
Collie, Alice Morrow, Frances Lucas and Swanhild Matthison.
For the first time in the history of the Club a period play was
selected for the annual Spring production. "Friend Hannah," by
Paul Kester, is a costume play of the Eighteenth Century with the
leading man the Prince of Wales and later George III, and the leading lady a delightful little Quakeress. The complications which
arise out of the fact that the heir apparent falls in love and marries a
commoner, who is ignorant of the true situation, forces Hannah to
make a tremendous sacrifice at the end.
Everyone who saw the play admitted that it was one of the
prettiest and most successful performances ever produced by the
Club. The roles were very well filled by both old and new members. The leading parts were taken by Sheila Tisdall as Hannah
Lightfoot and John Coleman as the Prince of Wales. The other
characters were played by Elizabeth Magee (Hannah's mother),
Anne Ferguson (Betty Trott), Betty Buckland (Princess Dowager
of Wales), Richard Lendrum (Duke of York), David Brock (Duke
of Chandos), St. John Madeley (Lord Bute), Alex Smith (Hannah's uncle), Sydney Risk (Hannah's cousin).
The play was under the direction of Professor F. G. C Wood,
and the success of the production was largely due to his efforts. He
was ably assisted by the various committees, the heads of which
were: Dorothy Barrow (costumes), Eileen Griffin (properties),
Win Shilvock (business manager), Alfred Evans (advertising),
Malcolm Pretty (scenery).
During the month of May the cast will make its usual tour
through the interior of B. C, and it is hoped that by its performances
it will bring to a close a very successful and enjoyable year.

The English Rugby Club
ALTHOUGH the 1929 30 rugby series was not quite over at
-** time of writing, the following constitutes a fairly complete
write-up of the Club's activities.
As in former years, the season opened with the Miller Cup
Series, and as usual, the raw Varsity squad was scheduled to meet the
strongest teams in the city before it was properly trained. As a
consequence, the team was unable to finish better than third
The second series for the Tisdall Cup is still under way. Varsity
is still in the running for this trophy, being tied for first place, and
should we win it, we will compete with the Vancouver Rowing
Club, Miller Cup champions, for the Rounsefell Cup.
The big series in B. C. English Rugby circles is for the famous
McKechnie Cup. In it Varsity stands second in the league, Vancouver Rep being at the top. In the first game in this series, played
on Thanksgiving Day, Varsity tied with Vancouver, the score being
6—6. The second game was played during the Victoria Invasion,
when we bowed down to the reorganized Victoria Reps.
A return game with Victoria will be played in the near
future. Varsity has improved 100 per cent since the Invasion game,
and a win is expected. Another game with Vancouver Rep will
end the series. Varsity has not won the McKechnie Cup for three
years. This year, however, we have an excellent chance, and the
team is doing everything in its power to bring back the traditional
cup to U.B.C.
The Rugby Club was fortunate this year in having Douglas
McNeill for president. Besides playing on the first team, he managed
the Club's business very ably. Ronald Burns, John Farris, Jerry
Ballentine and Jimmy Curtis also helped in an executive capacity.
The personnel of the team:
BILL LOCKE—Besides being captain of the team, Bill is
probably our most valuable player. He is playing his fourth year
in Senior company and has made a name for himself as a hard
tackier, a clean handler and a speedy ball carrier.
BERTIE Barratt—Bert is the best scrum half in B.C. and that
is saying a lot. He possesses an uncanny fake pass and is faster than
most men on the team.    He has represented Varsity for four years.
DOUGLAS McNeill—Inside three-quarter, is playing Senior
for his second year. He has one of the surest pair of hands on the
team and besides this, is a very plucky tackier.
Bobby Gaul—Wing three-quarter, is the Rugby Club's greatest find this year. He can out-run and out-dodge the best on the
team.    He will be heard from again next year.
Phil Barratt—Wing three-quarter is another old timer.
Speed is his middle name and that's not all.    He is also a sure tackier
and   a   gOOCl   Strategist. (Continued  on  P.,ge  One   Hundred  .ind  Thirty-one)

The EngHsh Rugby Club
(Continued  from  Page  One  Hundred and Twenty nine)
LEN NORMAN—Three-quarter, is one of the new men on the
team.   He is very fast and is also able to punt very accurately.
HAROLD Kelly—Needs no introduction. He is probably the
huskiest three-quarter in the city. His weight, plus more than
average speed and rugby brains, make him a very dangerous and
formidable opponent.
GRAYD Ford—Full-back, is one of the most valuable men on
the team. He possesses a long kick, a sure pair of hands and is fast
enough to worry the quickest players.
Alan Estabrook—Three-quarter, is another of the more
experienced players. He has a deadly tackle and is very dangerous
on the offensive.
Bud Murray—Hook, is one of the best forwards in the city.
He can kick, run, handle and heel, and seems to always know what
to do with the ball.
RALPH MASON—An old forward. He plays along with Bud
Murray and Aylwin in the front line. He has plenty of beef and
brains and uses both to advantage.
AYLWIN—A former Vancouver Rep player, hooked for Varsity
this year. His knowledge of the game stood him in good stead on
many occasions.
DlCK NlXON—Rear-rank, is one of our fastest forwards.
Coupled with this is his splendid condition. These two things,
with lots of fight, make Nixon the scrum man that he is.
Glen Ledingham—A freshman, is the biggest man on the
team. He tips the scales at 230 lbs. His experience as a high school
player helps to make Glen the most dangerous forward on the team.
KEN Martin—Playing his first year as a Senior and has shown
up to advantage on many occasions. All he needs is a little more
Roy McConnachie and Monty Wood—Also playing their
first season in Senior company. They are hard-working players
with plenty of speed and fight.
Art Mercer—A new man this year to Senior rugby. Combining brains, speed and zip, Art has turned out to be one of the
trickiest and most dangerous men on the squad.
BILL ROBBINS- -Husky forward from Victoria, came up from
the Intermediate team late in the season, and is making the old timers
step to hold their positions.
Howard Cleveland—The battling young sixteen year old
freshman, is turning in startling games as full-back. The way
Howie hits the opposition is a revelation to the older players.

leaves it in a three cornered tie for the head of the league. High hopes
of adding to the collection of cups in the Library are held and will

offered by the Meraloma and Ex-Magee teams.
Monty Wood, Captain, and Tom Munn, Vice-Captain, have

During the Victoria Invasion, the team, with only five of its
regulars, held the champion Victoria College squad to a 0-0 draw

"\ TARSITY'S Second Intermediate team, is composed, for the most
* part, of men who are playing rugby for the first time. It is
really a training ground for future McKechnie Cup players. This
year an exceptionally good "B" team has been developed. More
interest has been shown in practices, and a real fighting spirit has
been evident at almost every game. This was shown conclusively
in the recent game with the powerful Ex-Magee squad which the
"B's" held to a score of 3—0. The Intermediate "B" team is fortunate in having Mike Pollard as captain. His keen interest on and
off the field is a model to any rugby player.

HTHIS year's Freshman Rugby team, though it has by no means
met with complete success, has yet shown, on many occasions,
that it possesses a great deal of promising material, as well as a
considerable amount of enthusiasm. Howard Cleveland, who was
elected captain, has shown that he is well fitted for this position and
a great deal of credit is due to him for having encouraged "teamwork," which quality was sadly lacking in the first few games of
the season.
Most of the teams, which the Freshmen encountered, had a
decided advantage in the forward line as a result of superiority in
weight. The back-field, however, showed speed and ability to
tackle. There was no lack of "fighting spirit"—the "Frosh"
showed that they could play against a superior team without losing
The Freshmen owe a vote of thanks to Murray Hunter who

Fortunately a large number of the new men have had previous
experience. Through the untiring efforts of John Oliver, two very
creditable crews have been developed from this material.
This year, the Club finds itself with a larger membership than
ever before. As it adds to its membership, it likewise adds to its
activities. This year, a race was held with the Victoria J. B. A. A.
during the Victoria Invasion.
With thoughts for the future, the Boat Club has established a
trust fund. The object is to secure sufficient money from Vancouver citizens to build a clubhouse and purchase equipment.
The novice regatta is the event of the season. It is invaluable
in providing competition and racing experienced oars for next year.

The Canadian Rugby Club
Y\7lTH the passing of another year, the Canadian Rugby Club
has added perhaps its most successful season to an already
growing list. Although defeated by one point in the race for the
Lipton Cup, due to an unexpected defeat in the Capital City, the
Senior team more than justified its supporters during the remainder
of the season.
In the first two games against Westminster and V. A.C., Varsity
won, but then came the Victoria trip, where a field goal in the closing
minutes sent Varsity down to defeat. The following Saturday, a
heavy V.A.C. team plunged its way to victory over U.B.C. Then
the real work started. With three important league games in the
next two weeks and an Inter-Collegiate play-off following, the
team settled down to a grind of morning practices, with the result
that fighting Varsity team bucked, passed and ran its way to victory
in the remaining three games.
Another hard week's training and Saskatchewan was here. In
the first game, U.B.C. out-played its opponents to win 13 to 2.
Then, three days later, Varsity more than held its own for over three-
quarters of the game against a desperate Saskatchewan team, then
ran wild in the final moments to win 15 to 2, and to clinch the
series and the Hardy Cup.
If any man of this year's squad deserves special mention, it is
Captain Oliver Camozzi, who, for the past three years, has devoted
most of his time and thought to football. Due to unforseen circumstances Oliver was forced to leave college at Christmas, and it is
very improbable that he will be back next year.
With graduation this Spring, many gaps will be left in the
team. Cam Duncan and Johnnie Coleman, the finest pair of wing
men this University has seen, graduate with '30. Fred Grauer will
also be sorely missed next Fall, when an extra five yards is needed,
and Ernie Peden will not be there to rip holes in the opposing line.
To fill these vacancies much promising material has been developed
in the Intermediates and Juniors.
For such a record as this, the University owes an everlasting
debt of gratitude to head coach, Dr. Gordon Burke, and assistant
coach, Neil Watson, who, by their hard work and enthusiasm,
have built up a team like this one.

HPHIS year's Intermediate Canadian Rugby team has been the most
A   successful in the history of the game at the University.
During the Fall term, the team played in the Junior League,
and finished well up among the league leaders. The Intermediates
also provided, in the morning practices, the necessary opposition in
developing the champion Senior team.
After the new year, an Intermediate League was formed with
Meralomas and V.A.C. In this league, they had even more success,
being just behind the leaders. In this post-season league, several
new players have been developed, and certainly some members of
the team will be wearing Senior colors next year.
Much of the success of the Intermediate team has been due to
the devoted coaching of Neil Watson and Dr. Burke. Added to
this, the early morning practices, the unbounded enthusiasm of the
players, and there is produced an unbeatable machine.

CTARTING after Christmas as a new team in Canadian Rugby
at the University, the Junior team, while not showing any outstanding success in winning games, has nevertheless, proved invaluable in providing the necessary practice opposition for the Intermediates, and in training and developing players for next year.
Laboring as they do under the disadvantage that only one or two
on the team have ever played the game before, they have shown
truly remarkable development into a hard fighting, though slightly
unscientific machine.
It would be unfair to comment on any one player—it is
sufficient to say that the Juniors are a hardworking team, and when
they click, make things difficult even for their more experienced
brothers, the Intermediates. Their line is fairly heavy, averaging
around 150 lbs., and the backfield, although rather on the light
side, is very speedy. Next year's Intermediate team, with these
players, when they have learned a little more, ought to be unbeatable.

The Big Block Club
T^HIS is one of the new clubs at the University, having come into
*■ existence during the Spring of last year. Heretofore there has
been no tangible connection between the different major sports;
with the growth of the University such an organization is paramount if schemes of any size are to be attempted, and also to take
on the work of athletics that comes under the heading of no particular sport.
The qualifications for membership are that the members be
Big Block winners. Graduate Big Block holders are honorary
Among the aims is the establishment of a closer relationship
between high school and University athletics, and with this in
view the Club has presented a trophy for a Basketball series among
the high schools, to be played in the University gymnasium.
The presentation of the Big Blocks is to be made a more pretentious and extensive affair. Plans are now being formulated to
attack the large problem of erecting a permanent University stadium.
This gives a very general idea of the activities engaged in during the
first year of this Club's existence, and with the passing of two or
three years this Club will undoubtedly be playing no inconsiderable
part in University life.
The Men's Basketball Club
'"PHE Men's Basketball Club this year has had an unusual amount
A   of hard luck.    At the beginning of the season everything bid
fair for a very successful year.
Four teams were entered in the Senior "A", Senior "B", Intermediate "A", and Intermediate "B", divisions. Up to Christmas
the teams lived up to our high expectations. The Senior "A" team
finished the first half of their schedule in second place. The Senior
"B" team also made a creditable showing, while the Intermediate
teams suffered only two losses each.
At the time of writing the Club has secured the coaching
services of Dr. Garnett Montgomery, who has full confidence that
he can yet turn out a team capable of reaching the playoffs.
The Club executive is constituted as follows: President, Harry
Thorne; Vice-President, Laurie Nicholson; Secretary-Treasurer,
Jack Streight; Manager, Ken Campbell.

Men's Senior "A" Basketball
T^HE Senior team has encountered many difficulties this year; the
■*■ first was the struggle to get home games; then the trouble of
finding a coach. Christmas examinations were another obstacle.
Coach Montgomery is rapidly whipping a fine team into shape which
ought to finish high in the league.
WALLY MAYERS—The original captain of the team, and one
of the most polished players in Western Canada.
DUNC McNaughton—Mayer's partner on the forward
line; Dune has done well in Senior company.
TED McEwen—Ted, the third member of the pre-Christmas
forwards, is considered one of the best centres in B. C.
ROBBIE CHAPMAN—Robbie has played brilliantly at guard
in his first year as a Senior "A" man.
ARNOLD HENDERSON—With an enormous reach and a world
of experience, Arnold is invaluable as a guard.
Doug MclNTYRE—One of the fastest guards in the league.
BILL WILLISCROFT—The "big boy" of the squad with the
large grin, the wicked shot and lots of promise.
Ed Paulson—Ed is one of the few survivors of the championship squad of two years ago.
TOMMY Berto—With a long shot that has broken up more
than one game, Tommy is a smooth forward.
GEORGE SHAW—George is another newcomer to Senior "A"
Basketball, but will in time make a first class forward.
Laurie Nicholson—Elongated, good-natured, hard worker,
nice long shot, and strong defence man.
GORDIE ROOT—Success has followed him from the football
Ted Barbour—A very likely protege from Victoria.
Bobby McDonald—A clever ball handler, Bobby is in the
play all the time despite his diminutive stature.
Cyril Lee—Cy has a neat shot and clever defensive tactics.
The final result of the league found Varsity in fourth place,
the Blue and Gold squad having dropped a crucial game to the
Crusaders after a bitter overtime struggle. Their percentage of wins,
however, is the same as that of the team in the first half of the league.

winning four games and losing two, a very creditable record.

a member of the First team.
Cy Lee—Cy plays a fast game at forward and turns in repeatedly good performances.

getting his share of the points.

The Soccer Club
HTHIS season the Soccer Club has put its back into the task of
A putting Varsity on the football map of Vancouver. After a
stern fight, entrance was secured into the third division of the Vancouver and District League, and, contrary to general expectation,
the team has operated successfully and now stands second in the
division with hope of winning promotion.
The executive of the Club was: President, E. C. Roberts;
Manager, T. J. Sanderson; Secretary, M. F. McGregor; and Captain, T Chalmers.
The Senior team consists of:
McGregor—Goal; Mac has yet to turn in a poor performance, each game being characterized by his remarkable saves.
ROBERTS—Back; The most energetic man on the team, and
the possessor of a terrific kick.
STAFFORD—Back; The third member of one of the best
defences in the league. He never wastes a ball, is a determined
tackier and the squad's utility man.
Wright—Half: Noted for his sturdy reliability, and author
of, "The Old Fight, Varsity" in a crisis.
Phillips—Centre Half; The backbone of the eleven. Bill
never says "die", and as a pivot is without a peer.
Hyndman—Half; Very keen, and the most vigorous tackier
in the league.
B. Wright—Outside Right; The aggregation's speed merchant.    Bunny has a screeching shot which he uncorks periodically.
Partridge—Inside Right; To date he is the leading goal-
scorer, and gets his goals by a willingness to shoot from any distance
and angle.
WONG—Centre Forward; Distributes the ball skilfully and
is an adept at keeping the line together.
McLuCKlE—Centre Forward; A thrustful forward with a
good shot.
Chalmers—Inside Left; Captain Tommy is a master of
strategy, a good general and a clever individualist.
COOKE—Outside Left; The club's match winner. Small
and tricky, his powerful drive has pulled many a game out of the fire.
LATTA—Winger; A Canadian Rugby recruit whose direct
methods generally bring results.
MANNING—Back; His occasional appearances have been signalized by his resourcefulness under pressure and his mighty punting.
And Tom Sanderson, Varsity Manager. Tommy is the
man behind the scenes to whom all credit is due for renovating a
seemingly dead club.

Varsity's Second Soccer team placed second last at the conclusion
of the first half of the Vancouver and District Junior Alliance
Manager "Vic" Southey faced the task of choosing a team from
entirely new talent with the result that the bitterly contested league
openers found Varsity poorly organized. The recent loss of
Vollans, Christensen, King and Moffatt has again disorganized the
The eleven was chosen from: A. Saunders, C. Smith, E. Vollans, G. Wiles, C. Christensen, W. Moffatt, J. Fraser, G. King, J.

Southey, J. A. Mundie, A. White, A. J. Fanden.
Saunders, alert and reliable, has the ability to develop into a
first class goalie. Cy Smith and Vollans constitute a most formidable pair of backs who, in an emergency, may be replaced by the
halfbacks, Christensen and Wiles. "Red" Fraser at centre-half is
a veritable bulwark and is ably supported on the left by King. The
star forwards are J. Smith, Dickson and McKellar.

HTHE SWIMMING CLUB is able to report a particularly enthusi-
astic turnout this year as regards women, but has been less fortunate in the numbers of its men, although the quality of their work
is equal to that of other years. General enthusiasm in swimming
was evinced by the successful interclass meet in which the seniors
were able to defeat the freshmen.
The Club won the meet in Victoria, 64-62, for the first time
in years. Although it has been less successful in Vancouver, it has
been swimming against two very strong teams.
In the second Inter-Collegiate event this year, the Men's Swimming team went down to defeat before the Saskatchewan representatives. In the same meet, the women won the majority of events
against an all-star Vancouver team, Mary McLean carrying off the
B. C. 50 yards free style championship, while Varsity also won a
third place in the 50 yards and 200 yards free style championships.
Mary McLean and Ron Wilson have been the outstanding
swimmers, while our president, Marjorie Kirk, has been the most
indefatigable both in swimming and executive work.

'"THE University Track Club, one of the largest athletic organizations on the Campus, and certainly the most active, has this
year excelled even its own expectations. To the usual annual events,
a new one has been added—the Frosh-Upperclassmen Track Meet.
This year the freshmen were hopelessly annihilated, but at least
basked in some reflected glory when Ledingham, one of their number,
heaved the shot 40 feet,  l/2 inch, to set a new University record.
The Arts '30 Road Race was run on October 31. The Arts
team triumphed over Science, with Hammett setting a new record
of 14 minutes, 42 2-5 seconds.
The first of the numerous events of the Spring term, the Inter-
Class Cross-Country, was held on February 12. The conditions
were bad, but Gansner, the winner, finished in very creditable time.
One of the oldest traditions of U.B.C, the Arts '20 Relay
Race, inaugurated ten years ago, was run on February 26, with
nine teams competing. Science '30, repeating its victory of last
year, won in a close finish from Science '32.
The Inter-Class Track Meet was held on March 12, and constituted the trials for the annual trip to Washington on March 22,
in which the athletes of U.B.C. proved themselves equal to the
might of the large Freshman class of the University of Washington.

The Men's Gymnasium Club
HTHE Men's Gymnasium Club was formed this year to fulfill a
need that was felt greatly after the University gymnasium was
built. It includes a program of Swedish system gymnastics, both
floor and apparatus work. The Club has but a small membership
this year owing to the fact that it did not organize till late in the
Fall term, but will probably increase in size next year with a full
session of turnouts.
The Club was extremely fortunate in obtaining the services
of Mr. T. F. Wiffin, late gymnastic instructor of the Fifth Irish
Lancers, which he was with in that capacity for fourteen years.
Mr. Wiffin has also had much experience in this country with church
and school classes.
The executive for this year consisted of Gordon Stead, President; James A. Gibson, Secretary; Leo S. Gansner, Treasurer.

■p\ESPITE the loss, with last year's graduating class, of five mem-
bers of the First team, the Men's Grass Hockey Club has this year
enjoyed one of its most successful seasons. The Club owes its
gratitude to Mr. Bushnell, whose voluntary efforts in coaching the
teams have been invaluable. Thanks to representations made by
Sid. Semple, Grass Hockey has had the exclusive use of Dalhousie
Field for practices; and this convenience, combined with the coaching
mentioned above, has resulted in a larger measure of success than has
fallen to the Club in any year since its inception.
Under the leadership of "Captain" Preston the "Varsity" team
has earned for itself a place half way up in the City League table,
and anyone acquainted with the past history of the team will realize
that this is indeed a creditable performance.

Too much can not be said for the indomitable spirit shown by
members of the "U.B.C." or Second eleven. Composed almost entirely of "green" players, this team has stood up week after week
against aggregations of experienced men whom they had no
chance of beating. Although they have often been forced to play
two or three men short, yet on one occasion only have they defaulted
a game. While its record has not been enviable, the team has been
the means of developing a great deal of promising material, which
will doubtless form the backbone of next year's "Varsity" eleven.
The business of the Club throughout the season has been
capably handled by President Shirley Preston, and Secretary Jim

/^vNCE again the Women's Senior "A" Basketball team has won
^ the championship of B. C. by virtue of its victory over all
Senior "A" city teams, and lack of any opposing Island teams.
The next step towards Dominion finals will be the Western Canada
Championship series with the Commercial Edmonton Grads, present
world champions. Negotiations are now under way for this series
to take place at the U.B.C. Gym.
Out of the ten games played in the Vancouver and District
Basketball League, the girls won eight—losing one to V. A. C.
girls and one to Neon, both before Christmas. Much of the team's
success may be attributed to the coach, Jack Barberie, who has very
conscientiously given the most valuable training.
Jack, an "A" player himself, has been able to teach the women's
team some of the fine points of the game, and some excellent team
work which was such an outstanding feature of the team's success.

Shelly and Lois Tourtellotte.
Wilma Watson, Joan Edwards and Maribel Martin have
played steady games at guard. Helen Maguire and Dorothy Black
have been reliable centres, and Kathleen Bingay and Muriel Clarke
have worked hard at forward.
Although the team has been working under many handicaps
this year, it is evident that, if the members keep up their good team
work, their spirit and obvious abilities, they will gain a position of
merit in the league next year.

"p\UE to the progress made in the importance of Women's Grass
*^ Hockey on the campus, this year has been one of note. Primarily
through the efforts of Marjorie McKay, a Women's Lower Mainland
League was formed and put on a firm basis at the beginning for
the season. This provided a serious goal and motive for concentrated practice which has been carried on under the able and enthusiastic coaching of Mr. W. Black. Over thirty players turned out
in the Fall, providing material for two teams which are beginning to
co-operate with the men's league to the extent of practice games,
and which sent members to Duncan for a mixed game. Preparations
are also being made for a mixed game with a team from Ganges,
taking place in March. In short, the year has merited the raising of
hockey to a minor sport. Mrs. P. Boving is Honorary President
of the Club; President, Angela van Vooght; Vice-President, Margaret Moscrop; Secretary, Marjorie McKay; Curator, Jean Cameron.
The "U. B. C." team has made a very creditable showing so far

for first place. The greatest difficulty has been to get the entire team
out for co-operative practice, also lack of suitable playing grounds.
U. B. C. hopes to furnish some material for an exhibition game
between chosen representatives of the league and a similar team of
the High School League.
During the Victoria Invasion the Grass Hockey team lost to
Victoria, 4-2, but won the match during the return Invasion.
Due to the fact that the "Varsity" team sacrificed at the beginning of the year to the "U. B. C." team, and because of lack of team
practice, this team has not competed as favorably as "U.B.C." This
is the first year the University has had more than one team in
scheduled games, and with sufficient practice and continued interest,
we hope for better results next year.

Sheila Tisdall has a good command of court knowledge,
and her specialty in venomous drop shots make her a strong member
of the team.
IRENE RAMAGE is our strongest woman player and plays
a most aggressive game.
GRACE Ryall has improved her game very much this season, and has developed a smash which is most useful.
Nic SOLLY is our strongest player. War cry: "We should
beat these people, we must beat these people."
Jack SPARKS is Varsity's veteran player, but will not be
with us next year. He is a most energetic player and one who will
most certainly be missed.
TERENCE Holmes is a very determined player. His smash
and net shots are well known by all opponents.
Jim CHERRINGTON came up from the Second team after
Christmas, taking Vacy Fernie's place, and is a steadily improving
VACY FERNIE, our left hander. His left hand smashing
always took the opponents by surprise. We unfortunately lost
Vacy at Christmas.
Varsity sent a team to Victoria on the Invasion and succeeded
in winning one game and tying in the other. The annual trip to
Chilliwack was made this year, but the Valley Town succeeded in
winning over Varsity's picked team.
The Women's Gymnasium Club
HTHE season 1929-30 has witnessed a revival of interest in the
•*■ activities of the Women's Gymnasium Club, due to the more
convenient facilities provided by the new gymnasium. The Club
has been especially fortunate in being able to retain its popular and
competent instructress of last year, Miss Erma Hayes of the
Y. W. C. A.
Over 70 girls were enrolled in the class which was held on Fridays at 3:30. The interest of the members was evidenced by the
average attendance which was over twenty-five per cent, higher than
last year. The program included formation marching, floor work,
rythmics and games. The officers for the year were: President,
Ella M. St. Pierre; Vice-President, Kathleen Murray; Secretary-
Treasurer, Kathleen Crosby.

as was the winner of the cup donated by Mr. Keenleyside, for competition within the Club. The winner of both the cup and championship was Irvine Keenleyside. Several exhibitions were given by
the men of the Club—at the C. O. T. C. Smoker and during the
halves at Basketball games. Daphne Covernton and Victoria
Rendell, with Jean Jamieson acting as referee, exhibited their prowess at Hi-Jinx. New members as well as old receive instruction
under the direction of Mr. Eisenhardt. A match with the University of Washington has been arranged which will be held later
in the term. The executive consists of Honorary President, Mr.

A eluded the Faculty-Student match, the match with players of
the Victoria College, and the University Open Tournament. Unfortunately the past season showed little increase in the activities
of this Club but the outlook for the future is very encouraging.
The growth of the Club has been retarded by the lack of a golf
course within reasonable distance of the University. It is certain,
however, that with the opening of the new course situated close to
the University, the future of the Club is assured. With the evergrowing popularity of this game, there is no reason why this Club,
given sufficient encouragement, should not become one of the leading
organizations on the campus.

my head beside a murmuring, moonlit sea,
thinking the chuckling little waves that crowd
upon each other had a tale for me,—
a tale of Neptune in his lair asleep,
lost in the mazes of antiquity.
And I would tell in accents strange and deep
these thoughts of mine to you who disbelieve,
but I am mute—I cannot even weep.
At times in agony of heart I grieve
and curse the fate that my well-being mars;
and then I walk among the trees at eve
and whisper forth my secrets to the stars.
A vast and all-pervading sympathy
breathes a cool balm upon the aching scars.
I seize my pen in trembling ecstasy
to write the message that is never sent:
ah God! why is this power denied to me?
the answer comes, "Thou feelest,—be content!"

Page One Hundred and Seventy-one IN SPRING
TN Spring the swallow seeks a silent tower,
■*■ where man is not, but life broods warm and still;
blithe April hears the golden warbler trill
from thickest leafage far in forest bower.
The shrouding moss, the skein of twining flower,
the tangled branches hanging from the hill,
the sheltered dell new set with daffodil,—
here haunts the bird, nor fears a hostile power.
So you and I from door and casement dread
the whispering city's slanted eyes of scorn;
we seek a lonely glade the shepherds tread,
where hart lays off his antlers winter worn.
Here silence stills all far off fainter sound,
and we together walk the enchanted ground.
—From the French of Victor Hugo, by H.H. and R.D.,
(Literary Supplement, February 21).
T love the clean, firm craftsmanship of him
■*•   who carves, with chisel sure, the stubborn rock,
or with deft fingers moulds the shapeless clay
into a form of graceful loveliness.
He loves, and of this love has forged a tool
keen, and as strong as steel to do his will,
his is a passion which has made him 'One',
a dominating urge, creative, sure.
Nothing of dross resists that splendid flame        i
which burns, remorseless, all but purest gold
and leaves him simple, strong, and tuned to catch
the subtlest beauty shown in line or form.
We grosser mortals say that we, too, love
when we but feel a pleasant, lazy warmth
that cloys and softens all our nobler powers
and leaves us weaker, grosser than before.

T   IFE is a journey up a mountain side—

perspective, and wail to heaven our doleful cries,
until God nudges us to raise our eyes.
E. H. (Letters Club).
COMEWHERE, with painted pageantry, the trees
^   flaunt their defiance of the tyrant's will:
a million pennants taunt the chilling breeze
from woods in panoply upon the hill,
and ordered rows that line the streets of towns,
arrayed in russet robes and golden gowns,
make brave display.
Somewhere is glorious struggle—grim defeat—
life—death—and life in death—and victory:
with pomp and splendor now the ripe months meet
their doom—re-act the yearly history
of change, and Winter's conquering rage
which reigns till, hope resurging, signs appear
of new life that demands its heritage,
and bursts into its own—somewhere—but here
is green monotony.

• The Northern Lights •
A CROSS the side of the hill upon which the camp of Dawson is
'** built, is a huge landslide scar. To those who, back in '98, came
down the Yukon River toward the gold fields, this scar was the
landmark showing the end of the journey—where the Klondyke
joined the Yukon River. The Indians say this scar was not always
there, and they tell a story—of the great Fire Spirit and the Lady
Summer, his mate; of the River God, Tron Duik, and of his wrath.
Many, many years ago, before the white men came—at the
junction of the Tron Duik—river of the great Spirit—with the
mighty Yukon, there dwelt a tribe of Indians. They had lived
there long, but, although the men were bold in hunting and fishing,
and though the women worked hard and long, yet they could not
soften the skins of the caribou, nor store enough food to last through
the long winter, so, when the long, dark days came, the people were
cold and hungry. They had no tools—only heavy sticks, and
snares of hide and sinew.
But one day—soon after the ice had left the river and the
long night had fled from the land, the fishermen saw a strange sight.
There, riding lightly upon the water, was a queer canoe—it was
not a hollowed tree trunk, but was made of bark, and in it were
two persons—a man and a woman. The man was tall and bronzed
—his hair was ruddy as the fire flames in the lodge house, and he
wore shining armor which clanged as he walked; upon his head was
a great winged cap. The lady, too, was strange and most beautiful,
for her hair was golden as the birch leaves in the fall, and her skin
was as the sun-pinked snow caps upon the mountains; she wore a
flowing robe which shimmered as she walked. They approached
the fishermen, who cried aloud, saying:
"These must be the Fire Spirit and his Lady, the Summer, for
they are not as our people!" And the fishermen went forward to
welcome them.
To them the man spoke:
"The Gods have told me that you are poor—that, though the
moose run in the valleys and the caribou herd upon the hills, yet you
have little meat: that, though you have houses, yet the wolves carry
off your children in the night of winter. Your women are not
skilled in the fashioning of garments, neither do they dry the meat
and fruit and fish for your winter store. Therefore have we come
to you—to teach you these things and many more."
For many years after did the tribe prosper. The Man shewed
the braves the way to chip hard, black stone in order to make knives,
arrowheads, and tools; he taught them to hunt with bow and spear,

that they might kill meat in plenty. To the women, the White
Lady taught the manner in which to weave baskets from birch
bark, the fashioning of strong bows from pliant woods that their
men might have weapons ever at hand, and the ways in which to
cook and dry meat and wild fruits that they might have a plentiful
store for the long winter.
Thus did the trible strengthen in prosperity. Many winters
passed, the young men grew up, and those who remembered the
Strangers' coming grew old and could not hold their places in the
tribal council. Then one summer the moose did not come, neither
did the caribou roam in great herds upon the river's bank—it was
summer, yet the sun covered his face; the berries were frozen ere
thy formed, and the fish left the river. The young men murmured
among themselves:
"These are no longer powerful spirits—the arm of the Man
has lost its cunning—did he not miss his spear cast when we needed
the moose so sorely?" And they said, too, "The strange woman
is no Lady of Summer—there is no summer now; her power has
gone.   Now the snow has come again and we have no winter store."
Thus did they grumble, and ere long the day came when the
leaders of the young men said,
"We will have you no more in our village—why should we
share our food with you, who are no longer able to increase our
store?    Go away from us—we will not have you!"
"But the ground is covered with snow, and bitter is the frost.
Let us stay until the Spring—which will surely be soon—for we
have neither food nor shelter."
But the young men would not listen and drove the mentors
away into a rough cave high above the village. There they dwelt
the winter through. Small was their fire, and for food they had
only the little which the few who remained faithful brought them.
The Golden Lady grew paler and whiter, and the time soon came
when she could not lift her hand to greet those who came by night
to see her. Day after day did the Fire Lord wrestle with death for
her, but was conquered at last. When the elders came again, the
Lady lay on the snow outside the cave, and hour by hour the Man
brooded beside her.
At last there came a time when the sun shone once more. Then
the Man stood up beside the cold body of the Golden Lady, and
calling the elders to him he said:

"Hearken, ye who have shared with us your food and brought
us skins and furs, ye who loved her who lies in the snow—get you
up on the top of the mountain, for great will be my vengeance upon
those who slew her!"    And the elders did as he bade them.
As the night came on, again the man stood up, and lifting his
arms to the heavens, he cried:
"Oh ye who are in the air and of the earth and under the waters,
hear me! For many years did we labor among those in the village,
and glad and content were they. But now is come an evil race who
drove us out, and killed the Golden Lady whom I loved. Therefore I call upon you—Hyas Manitou of the Air, and to you, Oh
Tron Duik, Spirit of the River—avenge me upon these people, and
let me go to join my lady—for I wish to live no longer without
For a long time did he pray there. Suddenly, say the elders
who were cowering on the mountain, with a great roar did the
water of the river break its leach of ice, and the mighty waves boiled
and foamed around the mountain. Vast ice floes did the arms of
the waters cast up, and from the skies lightning came and the very
heavens roared their anger.
Out of the darkness loomed a great figure, and at the voice of
the god the rocks trembled.
"Ye ungrateful men—ye pray to me for good hunting, and
for all those things which ye need—yet this is how ye treat those
who fain would serve you?"
And Tron Duik swept by after he had gone, and day was
come once more, the elders could see neither cave, nor man, nor the
body of the woman. The village had gone—there remained only
a great scar upon the hillside.
But even today, when the winter is cold and the sun has set,
the great lights which play across the sky tell us of these Strangers.
The white waves, which pass with a silken rustle, are the folds of
her dress; the golden streamers floating behind are the masses of
her hair, yellow as the sun. She flies across the sky because she
fears the dark and cold which come before the summer—But close
behind are the streamers of red and purple, and these are arrows from
the Fire Lord's bow, and the sheen of the cloak which he wraps
around her that she may be warm and beautiful to bring back the
light of summer. And of the tribe which dwelt on the hillside
naught remains but, here and there among the debris, a few arrowheads of hard, black stone.
