A Word to the
Graduating Classes
Class Records
Student Government
Clubs and Societies
Literary Supplement FOREWORD
THE Editors wish to thank all those
whose co-operation has aided in the
publication of this issue of the "Totem."
Several somewhat revolutionary experiments have been carried out, resulting in
what we hope will be regarded as an improvement on the previous form of the
Annual. In any case, it is offered as a
record of the year's activities to the student
body as a whole and more particularly to
the Graduating Class of 1932.
Business Manager
DONALD F. HUTCHISON  A Word to the Graduating Class
EACH May of your University course has been a milestone in
your career; the May of your graduation year marks an epoch.
From this time forward the world will regard you as persons who
have had special privileges and will, consciously or not, directly or
indirectly, look to you for guidance. The years of irresponsibility,
a phrase usually associated with youth, have come to an end more
abruptly than you may care to acknowledge. The moral which
this sermon would appear to demand has been sufficiently emphasized any time this four or five years.    But mark you now what
(Continued  on  Page  Four)
[3 ] A Word to the Graduating Class
(Continued fiom  Page   Three)
follows. It is with pleasure that I take this opportunity of associating you with the fellowship of workers who have the welfare
of humanity at heart, especially that phase of human well-being
which consists in intellectual enlightenment. This University,
which you will have the honor of calling your "Alma Mater," and
of which I have the honor to be the official representative, welcomes
you into the larger field of service, feeling confident that those who
have successfully disciplined themselves in the hard work demanded
by an exacting course of study, and who have conducted themselves
worthily in the limited field of student organizations, will in the
larger arena play the game of life with credit or distinction.
Dr. Buchanan was appointed Professor and Head of the Department of
Mathematics in the University of British Columbia in September, 1920, and
became Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science in September, 1928. For nine
years before his appointment to the University of British Columbia, Dr.
Buchanan was Professor of Mathematics at Queen's University, Ontario.
[5] e Class History of Arts '32
RTS '32 began its eventful life the year the bus-stand and the
flag-pole first appeared on the campus. Like the flag-pole we
feel we have stood up well in all weather and have proved our
worth with time.
The Class activities have been many. In every sport there have
been staunch supporters, from the days when the women's relay
team won their race as sophomores for the second time in succession,
to this last year when our members have places on all the major
teams. Tom Brown, Larry Jack, and Dick Moore have played
on the "Big Four" Canadian Rugby team, while David Ellis has

Dramatic leads are taken by the following
members of the Players' Club: Betty Wilson, Betty Jack, Archie Dick, Bill Cameron, Doug. Brown and Jack Ruttan.

Jack Falstaff Ponders on The Supremacy
of Arts '34
AND who be there to question the supremacy of Arts '34, my
friend? 'Slife! As I live, and as this is good sack—which
I've never tasted better—I cannot for the life of me recall a merrier
time than we had at the class party at Lester Court that November
"Heigh-ho. And old Jack will long remember the days when
Dick Farrington, Doug. Gordon, Frank Perdue, Gordon Root,
Ernie Brown, Keith Hedreen, and Art Murdoch represented '34
on the Big Four Canadian Rugby team. And English rugger—
what would ye do without Chris Dalton, Ken Mercer, Milt Owen,
and Harry Pearson? Faith, but the Soccer laddies would be lost
without captain Paul Kozoolin, Millar McGill, Otis Munday, and
the Todd brothers. Frank Alpen, Gordon Root, Cy Lee, and Wally
Mayers are a whole basketball team in themselves. Oh, woe is me,
an I could but be young again!

T our head we have Ray Turner, and in his company we find
Lois Scott, Mary Thomson, Bill Ditmars, Margaret Beaumont,
Eileen Parkhill and Frank Rush, all teaming together to give the
freshman classes of other years a run for their money.
In sports, Arts '35 is well represented in English Rugby, Canadian Rugby, Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Badminton, Hockey,
Swimming and Track.
Our talent in drama and music has been well observed in the
Christmas and Spring plays, and the production by the Musical
Society of "H.M.S. Pinafore."    How many points have we now?
Although the authorities-that-be tackled us low in our dash
for more social functions, we broke through one spot in their line
to make a grand touchdown at our Class Party. For the benefit
of the boys (and I may add that the barber business was poor) and
the girls who didn't attend Hi-Jinks, we'll tell you that the Freshettes' part in the entertainment was well worth seeing.
We would like to thank Dr. Sedgewick for his excellent coaching and assure him that we appreciate the start he has given us.

held a position on the McKechnie Cup English Rugby squad. Irene
Ramage, Ellen Gleed and Ian Campbell take places on the first
Badminton team. Bud Cooke and Lew Clark represent Track.
On women's teams Muriel Clarke plays Senior "A" Basketball and
Phyllis White heads the Tennis Club. Our chief athletic triumph
was accomplished by Joe Hammett who won the Arts '30 Road
Race in our sophomore year.
Our literary talents have been well developed. This year
the Pub. staff claims Mairi Dingwall as Senior Editor, Mollie Jordan
as Literary Editor, and Reg. Price as Business Manager. Bob Brooks
is President of the Musical Society and is supported in no small
way by Kay MacDermot, Betty Smith, and Charlie Armstrong.
The President of the Players' Club, Alice Morrow, is also a member
of '32. Ruth Bostock and Swanhild Mathison have taken an active
part in plays during their entire college careers, and this year Margery Patterson, Jane Stevenson, and Frances Tremayne took part
in the Christmas play.
The Class has been well represented on Council during its
Junior and Senior years. Last year Fred Grimmett and Jack
Thomson held positions in the upper room. This year Earl
Vance, Cecilia Long, Dorothy Myers, Isobel Macarthur, and Jack
Thomson have constituted a majority of the governing body.
Public speaking has been our outstanding interest as a class.
Back in our sophomore year public speaking classes were organized,
leading up to a keenly contested oratorical contest. The Arts '32
oratorical contest is now an annual affair eagerly anticipated each
spring. Three of our best speakers have been chosen as University
representatives in inter-collegiate debates,-Paul Campbell, Jack Sargent, and Earl Vance.
There have been memorable social affairs as well in our career.
A basket-social for our Junior dance and a gangster party for our
Senior informal proved both original and successful functions. The
realization of approaching graduation lent charm and dignity to
our ball in the Vancouver Hotel this spring.
As the end of our course drew near we deliberated in the usual
way upon a suitable valedictory gift. The choice of an "Endowment Fund" to provide English fiction for the Library has satisfied
everyone as being unique and fitting.
Looking back it seems that two activities have colored our
college life most. The first was the Stadium Campaign, which as
Juniors we supported by the aid of the foresight of Madame "X"
and the portraits by Dr. Walker.    As Seniors we have rallied with

whole-hearted enthusiasm to the Publicity Campaign. This experience will long be remembered as a sincere and whole-hearted
effort and as a realization of the meaning of our Alma Mater.
Our grateful thanks are due to Professor Angus, who as our
Honorary President has counselled us for four years. Working with
him as Seniors have been: President, Don Morgan; Vice-President,
Patricia Harvey; Secretary, Mary Dooley; Treasurer, Ralph
Fletcher; Women's Literary Representative, Swanhild Matthison;
Men's Literary Representative, Paul Campbell; Women's Athletic

"Arts '34 is represented right generously in the Players' Club,
and Nance Carter, Olive Norgrove, and Margaret Powlett took parts
in the Christmas Plays. The Musical Society finds worthy support
in this class, and Bob Harcourt and Sophie Witter have been chosen
as principals in "H.M.S. Pinafore."

to this play.
[45 ] The Class History of Commerce '32
N '28, from all points of British Columbia—from Victoria to
Pouce Coupe—came a group of students which was to resolve
itself into the Commerce Class of 1932.    As might have been expected, the interests of the members of such a varied mass have led
them into very different phases of student activity.
Edgar Brown, a senior editor of the "Ubyssey," may often be
seen adorning a stool in the "Stat. Lab." beside Arnie Powell, the
President of the Basketball Club. Murray Garden, timekeeper for
the Accounting 2 Class, is always on hand to assist Miss Kay Vee
Lee (our only refining influence) with her coat. Don Morgan,
President of Arts '32, is usually discovered in the accounting lab.
busily "chiselling" on Messrs. Cox, Watts and Fletcher, the true
brains of the Accounting 3 Class. George Hall, our sheepman
(strictly academic) may be seen brousing steadily in the Library
from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.
Ian Campbell has upheld the honor of the Class as President
of the Badminton Club, while--to turn to sterner matters—we find
Humph. Mellish shouldering arms with the C.O.T.C. The Secretary and Vice-Chairman of the Publicity Bureau, in the persons of
Don McDiarmid and Win Shilvock, have added to our laurels by
their whole-hearted efforts for the welfare of U.B.C. during the
recent campaign, while "Scotty" Mclnnes, of "Big Four" Rugby
fame, arranged interviews for them in Victoria.
Neil McKellar, Ralph Read and Alex Fisher stand prepared to
do or die for Commerce '32 in any studious pursuits from Agronomy 45 to Nursing 113. Russ Shaneman, President of the Arts
men, simply delights in writing theses, while Malcolm Pretty of
Players' Club fame is ready and willing to tell anybody, anywhere,
anytime, anything they wish to know about that organization.
By some coincidence, most of the Commerce men gathered at
the Hotel Vancouver on March 17 to attend a banquet, which,
strange to relate, was a roaring success . . ."
We have been most fortunate, in our years as Commerce students, in having the whole-hearted support of Professor Day. As
head of the Department, he guided our wandering footsteps in the
first classes of Accounting, while Mr. Drummond introduced us to
the intricacies of the maximum and minimum deviations from a
normal curve of error.
Mr. Field and Mr. Plommer, the two Chartered Accountants
who have been in charge of the Senior Accounting, have, by their
interest in the Class, helped immeasurably to put us over the top
to a collection of B. Com. degrees.

hundred members have, however, managed to make their
presence felt. Our two successful social functions were a theatre
party after the Christmas exams., and a dance in January at Killarney Hall. Our dramatic talent was displayed in a skit at
Homecoming. In the field of athletics both our Soccer and Basketball teams have managed to keep near the top.
Members of the executive for the year were: Honorary President, Dr. Weir; Honorary Vice-President, Mr. Black; President,
Richard Lendrum; Vice-President, Jean Telford; Secretary-Treasurer, Mavis Holloway; Women's Athletic Representative, Jean

Dr. Brock was appointed Dean of the School of Applied Science and Professor
of Geology in the University of British Columbia in August, 1914.    He served
overseas from October, 1914, until September, 1919, and was formerly Director
of the Geological Survey of Canada and Deputy Minister of Mines.
[49] The Class History of Science '32
F THE 115 men who joined the class in the fall of 1928, only
17 have survived the four hard winters. However, we have
received additions from the classes which have gone before and
now have 42 members distributed in the various branches as follows: Chemical, seven; Civil, five; Electrical, eleven; Forestry, two;
Geology, one; Mechanical, nine; Metallurgy, one; Mining, six.
The Class has always taken a keen interest in athletics and has
players on both the McKechnie Cup and Big Four teams. On the
former there are Phil Barratt and Dick Nixon; and on the latter
Teddy Baynes, Gav. Dirom, and Jimmy Mitchell. There are also
representatives in the other sports. In 1929 the class won the
Governors' Cup for Inter-class sport, and, as a token of appreciation,

Science '33
UNDER the capable leadership of Roy Maconnachie, Science '33
is near the completion of the third cycle of its meteoric career.
Despite the obstacles and pitfalls of examinations and lack of summer employment, we still retain over forty of our original members.
This year has marked our division into the respective branches of
Engineering. Electrical has absorbed seventeen, Chemical ten, Civil
eleven, Mechanical eight, Forestry two, Mining four, Geological
three, and Matrimony one. Our tastes in vocations seems to vary,
but find us unanimous in our opinion of Hydraulics Lab.
The Class is well represented on University teams and we have
made a commendable showing in inter-class Soccer, Basketball, and

TWO up and three to go; and by the time this is in print the
third will be nearly gone for all of us—we hope.
In addition to several students of former classes we have with
us Harry Prevey, exchange student from the University of Alberta.
The Class is making a strong bid to retain the Inter-class
Football Cup won last year, and to gain the Basketball trophy. In
the Arts '30 Road Race last fall, first, second, third, sixth, and
tenth places were secured. Science '34 will be strongly represented
in the Cross Country, Arts '20 Relay, and the Inter-faculty and
Inter-class Track Meets this spring. On the quiet we're telling you
that we aim to annex the Governor's Cup this year.
Of teams in extra-mural competition we have representatives
on Canadian and English Rugby, Track, Basketball, Ice Hockey,
Football, Swimming and Rowing. We are also well represented
in the Musical Society and Players' Club.
The executive consists of: Honorary President, Prof. A. H.
Findlay; President, George Sinclair; Vice-President, Dick King;
Secretary-Treasurer, Eric Parr; Athletic Representative, Freddy
Bolton; Literary Representative, Phil Northcott.
Freddy is assisted by Brian Dingle as Football Manager; Dave
Carey, Track Organizer; and George Sinclair, Basketball Manager.
Clare Donaldson was the original President, but his election
as Junior Member necessitated his relinquishing his former office.

Science '35
T the beginning of the second term the class of Science '35
found itself almost untouched by the perils of the Christmas
Examinations, only nine men being requested to retire. Science
'35 may well be proud of its scholastic prowess.
Athletic activities have absorbed much of our spare energy.
Bobby Gaul represents Science '35 on the McKechnie Cup team,
Kirby upholds our reputation on the Senior Hockey team, while
Alfy Allan is the star in track events. Almost every other athletic
activity has some representative from Science '35. Our Basketball
and Soccer teams are still in the running for both cups, while our
track aspirants intend to capture the Arts '20 Relay Cup.
The number of men taking part in literary and scientific
activities is also large, there being representatives in many of the
different organizations on the campus.
The executive consists of: Honorary President, Dr. H. G.

The Class History of Aggie '32
PROFESSOR   H.   M.   KING.   B.S.A.,   M.S.
T HAS often been said that quality and quantity do not go hand
in hand. If the converse of this be true then the Class of Aggie
'32 has reason to pat itself on the back, for throughout its existence
it has been the smallest class which ever graced the halls of the
Aggie Building.
Starting with the munificent enrollment of five, of which only
three expect to hear the magic "admitto te" this year, the class
gained strength through the association of two members of '31 and
two repentant Artsmen who realized the error of their ways before
it was too late.   Thus a total of seven will be called upon to demon-
(Continued on Page Sixty six)
[65 ] The Class History of Aggie '32
(Continued fnm  Pa<it   Sixtu iiic)
strate to the world the superiority of Aggie '32.    This is the smallest
graduating class in the history of the Faculty.
The Class is destined to make history in yet another way, since
for the first time a majority of the year are potential economists.
Whether this proves that even farmers are beginning to realize that
the business side of farming is as important as the production phase
it is difficult to say, but the fact remains that four out of the seven
potential graduates have chosen economics as their special field of
endeavor. The other three have divided their allegiance between
poultry and animal husbandry.
The Class has never been inactive in campus activities, having
always been represented on the Arts '20 Relay team and having
members taking part in English Rugby and Grass Hockey, not to
mention the material which it has provided for the Aggie interclass
Soccer team for the past two years. Falls has been the outstanding
athlete of the class and has been largely responsible for the creditable
showing which the Relay team has made both this year and last.
Henry Shaw is the "social lion" of '32, although Al Taylor
bids fair to become a dangerous rival since he has achieved success
as a shining light in the Players' Club and annexed a part in this
year's spring production. Wilf Lee has created a precedent by being
the first Aggie student to hold the position of Editor-in-Chief of
the Ubyssey.
Wilson Henderson, "the butter and egg man," and one of the
three original members of the Class, has been the guiding genius
of the Agriculture Club for the past two years. Duke Kabalkin
has good reason to spend his time studying the developments in
Manchuria, for that country is his source of revenue. His keen
interest in economics is well known to all those who have attended
lectures with him. The final member of the Septette is Fred Old-
field, who has brought honor to '32 in the form of judging trophies.
Fred is perhaps the best known student of the graduating class and
can usually be found in the Farm Survey room where he divides
his time between writing a thesis and keeping the other occupants
of the office in fits of laughter.

AGGIE '33 has weathered the storm in its Third Year with
thirteen members. Although we lost some good men, three
others have joined us. Two of these seeing the merits of our Class
have been enticed from the Faculty of Arts, while another man has
come from the University of Manitoba, where he took his B.A.
From our group has come one of the moving spirits of the
Students' Council, Bill Whimster, who is also well known as a
strong debater. Dave Turner, who has come back after staying
out a few years, is one of the leading men in the Soccer Club. Bill
Osborn is still trying to break his neck mountain climbing and
practising on the elusive ski.
We have many departments represented in our Class, as Animal Husbandry, Horticulture, Dairying, Poultry and Agronomy,
though the strongest group is found in Horticulture. Our Honorary President, Prof. P. A. Boving, has on many occasions given us
fatherly advice in times of stress.

URING the two years that we, the class of Agriculture '34
have followed the trail of advanced education, there have been
few dull moments for us. Initiation, midterm exams., Christmas
exams., Stadium Campaign, final exams., reduced appropriations,
and more exams, have done their best to sweep us into oblivion.
But they have failed. We still stand firm, presenting an unbroken
front to the enemy. In fact, we have actually augmented our forces
from the ranks of the other faculties.
Besides those who started with Agriculture '34 as freshmen
last year, there are two students from Arts, one from Senior Matric,
and one from Applied Science. We gladly welcome these converts
who have at last "seen the light."
Although the Class is small, it has an enviable record. Over
fifteen percent of us obtained first class standing in the Christmas
examinations. Among the thirty percent of the Class who take
active part in athletics, are Harry Andison, "fifty yard torpedo" of
the Varsity Swimming team, and Dick Locke, President of the
Boat Club. Wes. Tavender is the Ubyssey's talented cartoonist.
The Class is represented in musical circles by Harry Katznelson,
prominent violin virtuoso. Our only co-ed, Connie Plommer, is
also a zealous member of the musical society.
And now, after setting down the truth about ourselves, we are
inclined to feel more optimistic than ever.
The executive: Honorary President, Professor R. L. Davis;

THE class of Agriculture '35 has reason to be a little bit proud
of itself. First of all, we are an extremely brilliant class. Witness our performance at Christmas. Like the wet tennis ball, not
a single bounce (and that's more than some Freshman classes can
say for themselves). Secondly, our class contains many budding
athletes. For instance, our friend Charlie Hardwick certainly is a
flashy basketball player, and you should see him pick 'em up and
lay 'em down in a mile run. Some of the boys have taken up
Canadian Rugby and seem to be doing well at it. They are Nelson
Odium, Bill Wood, and Boris Goumeniouk. We also have a
good representation on the league-leading Aggie Soccer team. To
cheer the boys on we have Nancy Brand and Kay Milligan, representing the fair sex, which does not usually grace our faculty.

Q INCE the College had the largest graduating class in its history
^ last year, those of us who were coming back felt that it would
indeed be a lonely place this year unless something happened. And
something did happen in the shape of the largest Freshman year
the College has had! Ten men entered this term and they have
bidden fair to take the place of the regard in which the Graduates
were held.
All the branches of student activities were in full swing. In
rain or shine, some of the men might have been seen in scanty attire
utilizing the Stadium track, and Soccer practices were held every
week, as well as frequent matches. When Dr. R. B. Y. Scott left
Union College last year, he donated a cup for Intercollegiate competition in track, and we have already cleared a space for it! An
oratorical contest was also held for the Gerald McGeer Cup.
In the common-room this year there were often to be seen two
heads bent low over the table and surrounded by a hushed and

breathless crowd,
no less!
What was it? you ask.    A chess tournament,
Nine of our number were registered in Arts at the University,
and of these three are Honors men. University activities were well
represented, there having been students from the College in the Parliamentary Forum, the S. C. M., the Philosophy and Classics Clubs
and the Historical Society.
Our first important event of the year was a Reception given
to Anglican students of the University and members of the Faculty,
at which an incredible amount of tea and cakes was consumed by
both hosts and guests! Then there followed in the Spring Term
a very enjoyable "At Home" which was attended by nearly one
hundred guests.
The College has had the great privilege this term of welcoming
to its Faculty a new member, the Reverend Douglas P. Watney.
Mr. Watney graduated from the University with the class of Arts
'25 and from the College with Theology '27. He is the first winner
of the Post-Graduate Scholarship to Cambridge, and after graduating last year from Selwyn College, he has taken up a position on
our staff.
This term has been an eventful and happy one and we are
sincerely sorry to see it draw to a close.

Victoria College
T IS rather early in the term to estimate fully the achievements of
the Alma Mater Society of the Victoria College for the Session
1931-1932. However, to date we have had a very active and successful year.
The Social Functions have been enthusiastically patronized by
the students. The Frosh Reception and Dance ended Initiation
week. This year the Hallowe'en Entertainment took the form of
a Barn Dance and proved a successful innovation. The Parents'
Reception and the Christmas Closing Dance concluded the social
functions for the first term. The College Ball was held at the
Empress Hotel on January 2nd.
The Literary and Scientific Department has been well organized as is evident by the varied and interesting programs of the
societies. The Players' Club will present in March "The Sport
of Kings," by Ian Hay. The Literary Society has been fortunate
in obtaining influential outside speakers as well as material of much
value from the student body. In the Science Club many topics of
interest have been introduced and enthusiastically discussed. The
Men's Discussion  Club  and  the Victoria  College  branch  of  the

Student Christian Movement have held weekly meetings. A new
club has been instituted—the International Relations Club. The
Society was fortunate this year in forming classes for a St. John
Ambulance Course in First Aid.
The Victoria College Annual is now receiving the attention
of a competent Annual Board and promises to be an outstanding
In Athletics the College Rugby team has held its usual enviable
record. The Women's Grass Hockey and Basketball teams have
made a good showing. The Badminton and Swimming Clubs,
although recently formed, have a steadily increasing membership.
All in all the Victoria College has maintained the standard set
by the students of former years.

presented a cup for inter-class basketball, but so far have not been

In the field of executive endeavor there are Gav. Dirom, President of the Men's Athletic Association, and a member of Students'
Council; Phil Barratt, President of the Big Block Club; and on the
executive of the Science Men's Undergraduate Society are Jimmy
Mitchell, President; Teddy Baynes, Vice-President, and Don Smith,
President of the Class.
The learned societies are grateful to Ed. Merrett, and Ed.

the student branch of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers.
In dramatics there is Bill Haggerty, chief electrician of the Players'
Besides the Class Party, Science Banquet and Ball, various tea
and coffee groups hold regular meetings to foster social activity.

[77] The Students* Council
HIS year of "depression" has been neither uneventful nor disappointing. Just as the students worked for, and obtained successfully, the Point Grey site, the Gymnasium and the Stadium; so
indeed, at the time of writing, a students' campaign to make British
Columbia "University conscious" has just been concluded successfully. This campaign climaxes numerous students' campaigns
which have been the outstanding features of several of the past years.
During the course of the campaign, student delegations interviewed
the Board of Governors, the Provincial Cabinet, and the Conservative Caucus; while student speakers pleaded eloquently for the maintenance of the first-class standard of U.B.C. before meetings of
numerous organizations both here and in Victoria. The campaign
reached its peak when the students absented themselves from
lectures for two days and canvassed Vancouver and vicinity to secure
signatures for a petition against the proposed cut in the University
grant. Students' Council was capably represented on the Student
Publicity Committee by Miss Dorothy Myers and Mr. Earl Vance.
As in former years, the usual "round table" discussions (poetic
licence), have been conducted over expense accounts of all varieties;
fraternities and sororities; the Victoria Invasion; the Social Program; and the Alma Mater Society Constitution.
There have been no blow-outs on Council this year, except
perhaps, the basketball game between the Students' Council and
the Publications Board, which ended victoriously for the Council.
It is best to mention that the women members of Council were ruled
"ineligible" and expended their energy on the side lines, cheering for
the team.
Talk! Talk! Talk! I blush with shame for my position
when I read over the long-winded eulogies in former Totems of
this "illustrious, etc., etc., etc., councillor;" and have decided to
adopt the apparently original, if perhaps, less ornate policy of telling the truth in the Council Write-Up—here it is:
The members of the fair sex of this institution have scored
again in their selection of the President of the Women's Undergrad.
Dorothy has capably handled, and undeniably lived up to, the
standard of her position. She has shown her charm, good humor,
and loyalty to all, meanwhile maintaining her own well-considered
opinion on matters of import. She usually manages to enjoy herself during the meetings in spite of the numerous occasions upon
which Earl has gently reminded her of the speech she has to make,
or the lack of necessity for Hi-Jinx and the Co-ed.
That Women's Athletics deserve every consideration in every
question, we now concede. During Isobel's term of office, she
has created a great deal of interest in interclass sport; interest which
(Continued on  Page Seventy-nine)
r 781 The Students' Council
(Continued from Page Seventy-eight)
has been particularly noticeable for the Spring Term. Her invaluable assistance rendered possible the success of the Danish Gymnastic
Display. Usually around Budget-time, Isobel will be heard to
remark, "Is it necessary to go over that?" She was also the only
woman member on Council that even came near to getting a trip;
having arrived at the dock to embark for DUNCAN, before the
trip was called off! Her chief bores are Alma Mater Meetings, long
speeches, and budgets.
Cec. is the one indispensible member on Council. A meeting
without a Secretary is unheard of, and even though she may mutter
maledictions about letters, and say sweetly, "Oh don't mind me!"
—they are always done promptly. Her own private tribulations
are breaking in stenographers, and the supercilious air of men on
Council towards the women. To rouse her, just suggest that
women on Council should be abolished. We all acclaim her as
the one who has out-argued the President and made him blush.
She is the only one on Council to sport a car, and "Josie" has helped
out many a hurried councillor, even though she is generally out of
gas. Cec's main grief is the number of trips given to Council men,
and she threatens to send in an expense account for her numerous
trips to the Science Building. We wonder if she is afraid of incidentals?
Our President has had a great deal of experience in University
activities and, although new to Council this year, he brings a wealth
of good judgment in all affairs. We overlook his ideas on the importance of women in executive positions since they are woefully
mistaken. A capable speaker and debater, he has proven himself
skilful in the handling of various types of meetings. His work
during the Students' Campaign proved of the greatest value to the
cause of the University. A vivid sign of our President's popularity
is evidenced by the appearance in a January issue of the Ubyssey
of a write-up where even certain articles of the wardrobe of our
debonair Chairman have been minutely described.
The President of the Men's Undergrad is the official "keeper
of the dates" and knows more about "what's when" than any other
member of the Alma Mater Society. Jack has had previous experience on Council as last year's Treasurer, and brings in to play his
good judgment on all matters, especially as regards discipline. He
also holds the record for moving the motions for adjournment—
having moved, if recorded properly, every Council adjournment this
"Not unless it has been requisitioned, vouchered, and
budgeted!"    Thus spake our Treasurer, and we knew that the fate

[81 ] Women's Undergraduate Society
THE Women's Undergraduate Society had a very successful year
for 1931-32. Initiation for Freshettes, preceded by a very
informal supper, took the form of the traditional candle ceremony.
A few days later, Freshettes were welcomed into the W.U.S. at a
tea held in the gymnasium, where Seniors introduced their little
sisters. Throughout the term the various class executives made
attempts to become acquainted with out-of-town women at a series
of small teas held in the common room, and a bridge was held in
the Christmas holidays.
To raise money for the Women's Union Building Fund, the
W.U.S. sponsored a very well-received Fashion Show in the
Georgian Restaurant. The gowns were displayed by thirteen attractive Co-eds.
As their contribution to relief work, women students of the
University aided in the collection of old clothes.
Hi-Jinx, the one affair which is open to women only, was as
much enjoyed as in previous years.

Student Publicity Committee
THIS year the University has faced, and still faces, one of the
most trying periods of its existence. With a reduction in grant
of 43 per cent, of that of last year, and 57 per cent of the grant of
the year before, the University has had to expect drastic curtailments
in all branches of its work. There has been the danger of lowering
the scholastic standing to a point where the position of the University, as a University, has been threatened. From the point of
view of the student body the situation has been very serious. With
a view to investigating the student position a committee was appointed by the Students' Council to look into the situation and
to take charge of any work which should be done by the students.
It was decided to begin the campaign along general educational
lines, stressing the value of the University to the Province and
pointing out the loss to the Province should the University lose its
present high standing. Along this line the campaign was quite
successful. Circular letters, radio speeches, advertisements in the
newspapers and whenever possible, public speakers, were all employed to present the case to the public.    When it became necessary

I S3 Men's Undergraduate Society Executive
THE Men's Undergraduate Society Executive had a busy year,
primarily spent in drawing up a social time table and overseeing
all balls and dances, except those held by the Senior classes.
The first major function to be held was the Arts Ball, which
took place in the Fall term at the time of Homecoming. In this
term also were held the majority of the class parties.
The Agricultural Ball started the round of the Spring term
festivities. This was followed by the Science Ball, held as an innovation in the Commodore Cafe, which was pronounced a decided
success. The Freshman Class also had their first dance as a group
in this term, and although most of the students there were of other
years, it is believed that the freshmen enjoyed themselves.
[84] Book Exchange
HP HE year 1931-32 witnessed the birth of another new activity
■*■ when the Book Exchange made its appearance at the commencement of the fall term. It was organized last spring under the direction of Alan Campbell, who had studied the system in operation in
McGill, and follows closely the model of that university. Its purpose is to expedite and regulate the exchange of second-hand books
and eliminate the haphazard methods formerly prevalent.
It requires a certain period of time for any organization to
function perfectly and many difficulties which it was impossible
to anticipate arose and demanded solution. In spite of this, approximately 4,000 books changed hands and for nearly three weeks
the management was pushed from "pillar to post" to accommodate
both the supply and demand. Judging by the experience of this
year, the Exchange will, with a few adjustments and possibly better
accommodation, function efficiently as an integral part of student
The management for the past year included Ken Beckett, Arts
'32, Manager; Jack Kirkpatrick, Comm. '33, Assistant Manager;
Scott McLaren, Comm. '34, Assistant. St. John Madeley, Comm.
'33, assisted at the opening until his managerial duties in the "Pub"
office claimed his undivided attention.
Student Publicity Committee
(Cuntimtcti m>m  Page  Cighty-thrvc)
to carry the campaign to Victoria it was decided to launch a petition
which would be used to add emphasis to the student appeal. The
result of this petition will remain for a long time as a monument
to student enthusiasm. The entire student body started out in the
face of a snow storm to canvass the city and in a day and a half
succeeded in obtaining sixty-five thousand signatures.
At the moment it is difficult to say whether we have achieved
success or suffered failure. We have accomplished our original aim
in presenting the University problem to the public and awakening
their sympathies. But as time goes on it is becoming increasingly
evident that the future status of the University depends upon a
very necessary reorganization of its internal affairs.

of another poor bill had been decided. Mark's very efficient business
sense is evident, and his well-worded motions are the high-lights of
our meetings. It is his "whereas, whereas, and forsooth" that adds
the necessary spice and good form to all our Minutes. We have at
all times tried to keep our meetings sufficiently interesting to merit
the Treasurer's presence in the Board Room:—we have not succeeded entirely. . . .
"It's the principle of the thing" that appeals to Gav, our husky
President of the Men's Athletics. No matter how big or how small,
no question fails to undergo Gav's "principle test." To him goes
a large measure of the credit for the success of the Danish Gymnasts'
Display, which he managed. It is his "temporary rulings" that
appeal more strongly perhaps than the others. Yes . . . Yes . . . We
know, but what is the use of being contrary-minded when Gav is
arguing for the motion?
The President of the L. S. E.—that's Bill—has numerous and
varied duties to which to attend. He is the foster father of the
Players' Club and the Musical Society, as well as of many small
clubs, and "it's a lead-pipe cinch" he is also the champion of the
Parliamentary Forum. Under his guidance, debating has taken a
decided step for the better and we feel that this is quite an accomplishment. As a result of his proficiency in the concocting of tomato
sandwiches at—say 10:30 p.m. Council Time, we are willing,— ■
nay, eager to recommend William Henry Leslie as Penticton's Premier "Pie-man."
Early in the fall the resignation of Howie Cleveland as Junior
Member necessitated a re-election to fill that vacancy. Clare was
elected office-boy, juggler of rooms and dates; father of the Class of
Arts '35, and General Manager of Homecoming. All these positions
he has fulfilled successfully and is therefore to be congratulated.
We sometimes wonder if it's sheer love of duty that makes him such
a champion of the Freshettes!
Women's Undergraduate Society
(Continued  from  Page  Eighty-two)
During the spring term, the W.U.S. held a tea in honor of the
Faculty Women's Club.
The climax of the season was, of course, the Co-ed Ball. This
being a leap year it was held on February 29th. As usual, the men
were well entertained. Funds received helped to swell the Women's
Union Fund.
The Publications Board
THE "Pub," as an ex-editor has so happily phrased it, is the
happy-loaning ground of its thirty or more devotees. It is
also the locale of earnest endeavors to inform, amuse and uplift the
students and faculty through its various publications, notably the
Ubyssey. Whether the dozen or so persistent "Pub" inhabitants
are the dregs of an otherwise respectable student body (as some
have said) or whether their collective minds form the intellectual
aristocracy of this University (as others have said) is a question on
which this writer does not intend to commit himself. Opinions
differ and even the time hallowed maxim of knowing them by their
fruits does not seem to apply.
A constant struggle against adversity has been the keynote of
work on the Publications Board this year. The session opened
inauspiciously with a veritable epidemic of resignations including
Himie Koshevoy, editor; and Doris Barton, senior editor. In fact
at the conclusion of the year there were only three people on the
whole staff who held the same positions as they did at the beginning
of the fall term, all the others having either resigned or been promoted to fill vacancies caused by resignations. The loss of Himie
Koshevoy was a blow which struck at the very heart of the "Pub."
Through years of close association Himie had become a prominent
factor in the unifying force which held the organization together.
Doubtless his departure had much to do with the overwhelming
wave of resignations mentioned above.
Except for the campaign against the proposed cut in the University grant, the year has been fairly uneventful. Perhaps this was
a reaction against the eruptions which last year disturbed the
academic calm and peace of mind of the student body. So quiet
has been the session that Ubyssey editors have sometimes found
difficulty in getting news. Partly as a result of this condition, but
chiefly in the interests of economy, the size of the paper was reduced
in the second term, after being enlarged at the beginning of the session.    It still remains larger than in any previous year.
An important incident in the course of the term was the visit
of W. F. Pay ton, editor of the Toronto "Varsity," who came in
the interests of the newly formed Canadian Intercollegiate Press
Union. The Ubyssey has joined the association and will be served
next year by wire connections across Canada.
When he was appointed Editor-in-Chief, Wilfred Lee was untried and comparatively unknown, but he has succeeded in holding
one of the most difficult and responsible student positions with
credit to himself and advantage to the Publications Board. Blessed
with a genial disposition and the gift of informal diplomacy, he has
kept in harmony with the staff and the staff in harmony with itself.

The Publications Board
(Continued from Page Eighty seven)
He usually manages to keep on good terms with everyone, including
even Students' Council, which, for an editor, is quite a lot. His
editorial policy has been consistent, diplomatic, and what the optimists would call "constructive." Fraternities and the C.O.T.C.
were given up as incurable diseases and left alone. The series of
editorials which protested against the threatened reduction in the
government grant to the University has been highly praised as an
excellently argued and well presented case in favor of the University.
Mairi Dingwall and Frances Lucas, as senior editors, have each
been in charge of one issue of the paper a week. Mairi carefully
suppresses high literary ideals in a cheerful compromise with college
journalism. Her avowed aim in writing editorials has been "to make
people think." Although now giving up the quest as hopeless she
has not become a cynical iconoclast of student foibles and ideals.
Frances Lucas is the "Pub" enigma. She is capable of high
poetic fervor when under the influence of the Muse but has also
been known to descend to the depths of "Muck" writing. A secret
love of yellow journalism has been her besetting sin and frequently
manifests itself in hectic headlines. She never takes life very seriously, believing that an infectious laugh and breezy humor get
results as quickly as any other method and much more pleasantly.
News Manager Madeley browbeats his reporters in the traditional manner of the hard-boiled city editor. Believing that politeness is wasted on the cubs, St. John is the terror of their young
lives. Knowing everyone on the campus and being versed in most
of the inner secrets of faculty and students, he has been a most
valuable man in having whatever news there was run to earth.
The position of Sport Editor, as Gordon Root will tell you,
is no sinecure. First the other editors play havoc with his "copy"
and then the campus athletes play havoc with him. Gordon, however, has survived the year without becoming prematurely aged and
has edited the sport page in a satisfactory manner. He was assisted
by Everett King, who began the year as sport editor but was forced
to give up the position in order to do justice to his curricular work.
Day Washington, who was promoted from "the ranks" to occupy
the position of Associate Sport Editor, has proved to be a "very
present help in time of trouble." Day's official duties consist of
superintending the sport page in the Thursday issue, but the not
infrequent absence of other members of the sport staff has given the
Associate Editor plenty of chance to demonstrate his reliability and
his unusual talent for page make-up. Stu. Keate, the Assistant Sport
Editor, spends little time in the office but has clearly demonstrated

reams of the usual "copy" and somehow managed to make the

of the sport department with all its trials and tribulations. Words
of impatience and sighs of disgust emulated now and again from

Management of the Publications Board. Despite the handicap imposed by conditions, a satisfactory year has been experienced in all
Reg. Price, the efficient and hard-working Business Manager,
has maintained a habitual calm in the face of a multitude of disturbing elements, such as insistent demands from members of the
Editorial staff, curtailment of expenses by a thrifty Council, S.O.S.
calls from troubled business men, and the inevitable deadline. Foremost among Reg's achievements is the Advertisers' Pep Meeting held
during the Fall, at which he and Earl Vance addressed the students
on the necessity of supporting advertisers.
Nathan Nemetz has found time, in between his editorial and
debating activities, to chase up dilatory advertisers. Assisting in
the advertising work have been Eric Benson, Sam Lipson, Jack
Stanton and Dick Buchanan.
Murray Miller has proved himself an efficient Circulation
Manager, and has been successful in soothing disgruntled subscribers. Assisting him in the distribution of the "Ubyssey" on the

Muck-a-Muck, under the care of Tom How alias Tom
Thumb, has continued to be the most widely read part of the paper.
A never failing supply of puns came from the fruitful brain of the
versatile editor and his "Crumbs from the College Bred" contained
a good deal of wisdom as well as wit. Ernest Costain preceded
Tom as Feature Editor but he early found that humor writing
interferes seriously with the pursuit of a classical education. Guy
Palmer, in the capacity of Assistant Muck Editor, has assisted How
in satisfying the student appetite for humor.
Norman Hacking joined with Mollie Jordan and Day Washington in the trio of Associate Editors, filling the vacancy caused by
the exodus of the Totem Editor, Rosemary Winslow. Having
shone as a reporter last year, Norman's promotion has been rapid
and his work this year gives promise of better things to come. He
has become so enamoured of newspaper work that he is afraid that
he is now a life addict of the "game."
In reconciling the supposed irreconcilables of undefiled journalism and business, Nathan Nemetz has displayed remarkable
talent, for he held jointly the positions of Exchange Editor and
Advertising Manager. His well known column "News and Views
of Other Us" provided students with interesting highlights from
other colleges, plus the comments thereon which were Sonny's own.
Owing to other duties, Nemetz was later succeeded in this position
by Jack Stanton, who has worked conscientiously.
Assistant Editors are all Christmas promotions, Margaret

Bill Cameron, Kay Greenwood, Ted Denne, Jim Miller, Agnes
Davies, Doug. Perkins, Mary Cook and Kay Macrae.
A review of the personnel of the Pub. would be incomplete
without some mention of the members who contributed the two
features of the paper, namely Ron Grantham, the able author of
"Pipe and Pen," and Wesley Tavender the cartoonist. Grantham's
column has frequently been referred to as "the most interesting
department of the paper," while Tavender's topical drawings have
brightened up the sheet to a remarkable degree. Never before has
the Ubyssey been so fortunate in its art contributors.

Laurel Rowntree, as Assistant Editor, was kept busy clarifying
the many and varied bits of "information about oneself" as submitted by dignified Seniors. Added to this she assisted with the

Leona Nelson made history in one or two instances by telephoning a man's wife and asking for him by his Christian name
and in writing a feature article on "Totem" troubles for the

late write-ups with some gem of wit most disconcerting to the more
serious ones.
Much credit is due the staff for the very efficient way in which
they have completed an extremely difficult piece of work.

UNDER the auspices of the Literary and Scientific Executive, the

of former years, has re-established debating on the Campus, and
there is every reason to believe that debating will again come into

THE Agricultural Club has completed another successful year by

subjects amongst the Aggies. During the year eight evening meetings were held at the homes of different members of the Faculty,
where addresses such as: "Vancouver's Future Milk Supply, Bottles
or Cans," and "World Economic Conditions as They Effect Agriculture" were presented by prominent speakers. These addresses
were always followed by an interesting and instructive discussion.
The Club also sponsored public speaking amongst the Aggies
by conducting debates and an oratorical contest. Four inter-class
debates were held, and the oratorical contest took place early in

HTHE Classics Club has enjoyed a very interesting and profitable
-^ year during 1931-32. It is indebted to its Vice-President, Miss
Norma Douglas, for a very interesting innovation—the singing in
Latin of such well-known songs as "Drink to Me Only With Thine
Eyes," "Jingle Bells," and "My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean." This
• feature has proved very popular, and it is hoped it will be continued
as a regular part of the Club's activities.
Many excellent papers have been given during the year, and
the subjects were as varied as they were interesting. The first three
papers "Greek Architecture," "Ancient Coins," and "Greek Pot
tery" were very fittingly illustrated with lantern slides. These
were followed by "Famous Wives," "Ancient Ships," and "Methods
of Naval Warfare." Four papers are yet to be given on "Romans
and Jews," "Christian Persecutions," "Crete," and "A Dialogue
from Lucian."
The Club has been very ably guided by its President, Mr.
David Ellis, while assisting him on the executive were Dr. Todd,
Miss Auld, Norma Douglas, Charles Armstrong, Nora Mains and
Max Humphrey.

Art Club
THE Art Club started the year with a flourish when a large
gathering of students visited the newly opened Art Gallery.
Mr. Scott conducted the group, indicating points of interest and
explaining some pictures which have evoked so much controversy
among art circles.
Co-operation received by the Club has been most encouraging.
The Art Gallery has contributed the use of its club room once a
month for our meetings and the homes of several members have
been generously opened to us. An interesting and intellectual group
of speakers have offered their services, among them being the following: Mr. Scott, Dr. Clarke, Miss Sing, Professor Boving, Mr.
Varley. These speakers have furnished books, slides, and all manner of reference. At one meeting there were actually three carloads
of books. The students were also privileged to see, for the last
time as a collection, the works of T. W. Fripp.
We owe much of the year's success to our leader Mr. Ridington, who through his friends, acquaintances and knowledge has
obtained many lectures and privileges. A display of art shown at
Varsity during the Christmas season was sponsored by the Club.
Although the year's work is not yet complete, the Art Club
feels it has had and will have perhaps its most successful year.
'ALOUETTE is one of the three French clubs connected with
the University which together, are known as the "French
Literary and Dramatic Society." The aim of the Club this year
has been to encourage greater fluency in the French tongue, and
greater interest in the life and literature of France.
The meetings, held every two weeks at the homes of the members, were varied, including musical and literary evenings with
French conversation, games and refreshments. Two very interesting meetings, which the three French clubs attended, were a musicale
given by Mrs. G. G. McGeer at the home of Mrs. Klinck, and a
dinner at the Restaurant Francais.
The members of the Club wish to express their gratitude to
Miss Greig for her deep interest in the club, and also to the hostesses
who so kindly entertained them at their homes.
The executive for this year included: Honorary President, Miss
Janet T. Greig; President, Vera Scott; Vice-President, Ruth
Heighton; Secretary, Donald Fisher; Treasurer, Carol Sellars.

The Biological Discussion Club
HP HE object of the society is to stimulate interest in the Biological
-l»- sciences within the University by the reading of papers or addresses of general interest.
The society has enjoyed a very successful year, and admitted
into membership eleven undergraduates. There are numerous postgraduates who are active members of the club.
Professor Spencer addressed the opening meeting, speaking on
"Wings." An innovation this year was the Hallowe'en party at
the home of Mrs. L. C. Carl. The last meeting in the Fall was
addressed by Mr. Clifford Carl on the subject, "Oysters."
In the spring, the following papers were arranged: Miss Florr
cnce Grove, "The Ideal Menu"; Crawford Jamieson, "Darwinism"; Harvey Armitage, "Genetics and Evolution"; Kenneth
Graham, "Entomophagous Insects"; Ian McTaggart-Cowan, "Big
Game in B.C."; Reginald Hammond, "Plant Pathology in the
Okanagan"; Desmond Beall, "Vitamin D".
The Club decided to issue a resume of the interesting events in
and around the Biological departments which are to be sent to
graduate members at other Universities.
The society was unfortunate in losing its Vice-President, Miss
Molly Beall, through illness. The executive for the remainder of
the year consisted of: Honorary President, Dr. C. McLean Fraser;
President, Alfred J. Elliot; Vice-President, Catherine Black; Secretary-Treasurer, Florence Grove; Curator, Ian McTaggart-Cowan.
International Relations Club
FORMED in 1930 under the auspices of the Carnegie Endowment
for International Peace, the International Relations Club is
affiliated with the world-wide organization under the same body.
Our Club each year receives books and pamphlets from the Carnegie
people, some of which are reviewed in subsequent meetings and all
of which are loaned to members with special privileges. Our
organization, which was one of the first to be organized in Canada,
was affiliated with the Canadian League of Nations Society in 193 1.
Members are admitted only if they show a real interest in the work
of the Club, and an intention to study world events seriously. Outside speakers obtained for meetings were: Colonel Fallis, Dr. Mander
of Seattle, Dr. Fischer of Budapest, and Mr. Kolchnig of Geneva.
A great deal of the credit for the success of the Club is due to
Mr. Soward's active interest.
The retiring executive is: Honorary President, Professor
Soward; President, John Sumner; Vice-President, W. Roper; Secretary, Margaret Black; Committee, Frances Milligan, H. Gallagher.

The G. M. Dawson Geological Discussion
HPHE Geological Discussion Club held meetings every second week
■*- throughout most of the year. As in the past, the meetings were
held at the homes of the honorary members, to whom the student
members are very much indebted for their hospitality.
The policy of the Club during the year was that most of the
papers should be presented by student members. Accordingly,
about twelve of the papers were presented by students.
The Dawson Club is affiliated with the Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy as its student branch at the University of
British Columbia, and members can become student members of the
Institute if they wish.
During the year the Club was unfortunate in the death of two
of its members. Horace McEwen died very suddenly early in the
fall term. Albert Coles was drowned in the Columbia River during
the summer. The office of Vice-President which he held was left
vacant in his memory.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Doctor
M. Y. Williams; President, T. C. Holmes; Vice-President, Albert
Coles; Secretary-Treasurer, H. S. Fowler.
Household Science Club
Q PONSORED by the women of British Columbia, the department
^ of Household Science, which has been urgently needed at the
University of British Columbia, was finally established this year.
On behalf of the women, subscriptions were obtained so that the
government at last session granted the course. Lectures did not
start until November, due to delay in the assurance of the grant.
The term will therefore not be completed until six weeks after the
close of the University term.
The Club two years ago consisted of thirty members, but the
membership has gradually decreased, due to the uncertainty of the
course, so that this year there remained only ten girls in 3rd year
to be pioneers for Home Economics. We are hoping that more
girls will register under this department next year.
Last fall the Club members presented a skit at Homecoming,
christening the new course.
The executive consists of: Honorary President, Dean Bollert;
President, Jean McNaughton; Vice-President, Helen Lowe; Secre
tary-Treasurer, Janet McElhanney.
[ 99 ] The Chemistry Society
THIS society is one of the oldest organizations in the University.
It was founded in 1916, less than a year after the University
itself opened. Since then the Society has continued to flourish, the
past year, especially, being marked by a considerable increase in
Its aim is not to add to the instruction of the classroom, but
rather to create an interest in all branches of chemistry. The members meet twice a month, once in an open meeting, at which any
one is welcome, and once in a closed meeting for members of the
Society only. The open meetings are held in the afternoon when
professors from the Department of Chemistry and prominent outside chemists speak. The closed meetings, at the home of some
member, are held in the evening. For these the members themselves prepare papers on some phase of chemistry which they read and
which are discussed. This year the executive finds it possible to
donate a prize for the best paper given by a fourth year student and
one for the best paper by a third year student.
Membership is limited to those students in their third or fourth
year taking Chemistry III or some higher course. The fee is one
dollar per year.
The executive for the past year consisted of: Honorary President, Dr. Archibald; President, Alan H. Cameron; Vice-President,
Phyllis White; Secretary, Tom McKeown; and Treasurer, Norman
Law Club
THE Law Club was formed with a very practical end in view,
namely that of providing a means whereby students may obtain
some acquaintance with the study and practice of law. In the arrangement of its program the club has endeavored to further this
aim, while at the same time attempting to present the subject in a
manner not too uninteresting to the uninitiated student. Speakers
are invited to address the club on alternate meeting nights, usually
on the subject of law and the legal profession generally. The remainder of the program consists of mock trials, with each member
participating in some capacity. Needless to say, these latter occasions provide considerable amusement in addition to their instructive
value in matters of court procedure, debate, and cross-examination.
Meetings are open to all students interested in the activities
of the club.
[ 100] The Student Christian Movement
THE Student Christian Movement aims to create a fellowship of
those students of varying opinions who are searching for a comprehensive view of life and of those willing to test the conviction
that in Jesus Christ is found the means to the full realization of
Through the National Movement it is linked with the World
Student Christian Federation with its affiliations in thirty countries.
This year local activities have included five study groups; two
noon hour series of lectures entitled, "Economic Internationalism,"
and "Towards a New Social Order"; several week-end retreats at
Copper Cove; and special meetings.
The Pacific Area Conference held at Bowen Island last June
proved a success. A continuation committee has been studying the
problems of the Pacific Area.
Representatives attended five other conferences, national and
international, including the Quadrennial Conference of the S. V. M.
at Buffalo.
Dr. T. Z. Koo of the W.S.C.F.; Dr. Kiang Kang-Hu of McGill; Miss Lucile Day of the S.V.M.; and Mr. Murray G. Brooks
National Secretary have been welcome visitors. Mr. Hugh McMillan, National Secretary of the S.V.M. and Miss Owen of the
S.C.M. of Great Britain will be with us this term.
The executive consisted of: Honorary President, Dr. A. H.
Hutchinson; President, Andrew Broatch; Vice-Presidents, Mary
Sadler, Fred Jakeway; Secretary, Blanche Inglis; Treasurer, Bob
McMaster; Publicity, Verda Benedict; Camp Manager, Charles
The Menorah Society
HPHE Menorah Society brings its eighth year of activity to a
■*- successful close. The Society has for its object the discussion
of current problems, with particular reference to problems of Jewish life and activity. At the beginning of the term a reception was
given in honor of the Jewish freshmen entering U.B.C. The meetings for the year were held at the homes of members where the
entertainment took the form of papers, discussions and debates.
We feel that the success of the Society has been largely due to
the enthusiasm of its worthy president, Miss Vera Peters. The
executive consisted of the following: President, Vera Peters; Vice-
President, Nathan Nemetz; Secretary, Samuel Lipson; Treasurer,
Walter Citrin; Freshman Representative and Reporter, Sidney S.
[ 101 ] The Letters Club
THE high tradition of the Letters Club has been well maintained
this year, ten papers and a collection of original contributions
having formed the basis of the program. A wide variety of subjects
and a diversity of treatment have been noticeable features.
The program was opened by Robert McLarty's capable paper
on Sinclair Lewis. Then followed an excursion into fairyland
under the spell of Jean Cameron's "Fairy Tales." Two short,
but appreciative papers on Robert Frost and Thornton Wilder were
given by Isobel Bescoby and Mary Fallis. Margaret Muirhead's
beautiful paper opened the door into the world of Negro literature
and the Negro spiritual. The term was brought to a close by an
evening of original contributions in which all members present
turned from, criticism to creation. Contributions of prose and
poetry, fantasy and drama, were read and discussed.
Robert Wallace opened the second term, introducing the club
to the Moscow Art Theatre. Dorothea Lundell followed with a
charming paper on "Coppard," the inimitable writer of short
stories. Michael Freeman's paper on Sigrid Undset showed a deep
appreciation of the Norwegian authoress. Robert Brooks sympathetically presented Ireland's A. E.,—poet, economist and mystic.
At the closing meeting, Douglas Fraser gave an admirable "defense"
of Tennyson.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Professor
Larsen; Critic, Dr. Walker; Archivist, Mr. Haweis; President,
Robert Brooks; Secretary-Treasurer, Mary Fallis.
Historical Society
THE Historical Society has experienced a most successful year
of activity. "British Columbian History" was the general topic
of discussion and the society was particularly fortunate in having
as Honorary President Dr. W. N. Sage, whose wealth of knowledge of the subject was a constant source of benefit.
A background for the series of papers was laid by Michael
Freeman who dealt with "Explorers by Sea" and Dr. Sage on
"Explorers by Land." The period of the Hudson's Bay Company's
domination was dealt with in two papers: Gladys Webster gave
a clear portrait of "Life in the Company" and Mary Wallace compared two of its prominent officials in a paper on "Dr. John McLaughlin and Sir James Douglas." Henry Johnson in a most interesting fashion depicted "Early Life Among the Coast Indians"
at the last meeting of the society for the fall term.
During the spring term, "Golden Cariboo" was the subject
of a paper of unusual merit by Isabel Bescoby.    Frank Snowsell

La Canadienne
npHE session 1931-32 has been a very successful one for La Ca-
-*-  nadienne.    The object of the Club is to improve French conversation, and to learn something about the language, literature, and
life of the people.
In the pursuit of such ambitions, meetings have been held fairly
consistently throughout the term at the homes of various members
who have been so kind as to entertain us.
About twenty progressive students have enjoyed themselves
at numerous gatherings where reading, songs, games and conversation—all in French—have contributed in a very interesting manner
to learning a little more about the French language they are studying.
One of the regrettable incidents in the year's history of the
Club was the loss of their Honorary President, Monsieur E. E.
Delavault who returned to France. M. Delavault has been, since
the formation of the Club, an invaluable advisor and helper, and.
the good wishes of all the members go with him in his return to
his native country.
The Club's executive for 1931-32 was as follows: Honorary
President, Prof. E. E. Delavault; President, William Kennett; Vice-
President, Evelyn Lewis; Secretary, Maurice Klinkhamer; Treasurer,
Grace Parkinson,
The Philosophy Discussion Club
R. COLEMAN introduced the season's activities, when, at the
home of Professor Henderson, he gave an address on "Philosophy in English Literature." The season's activities closed with an
Irish Evening (March 17) at the home of Dr. Coleman, on which
occasion John George Morgan gave a paper on "Some Practical
Applications of Philosophy."
Following Dr. Coleman, George Kellet, in a review of
Spengler's ideas, gave a fine paper on "Is Western Civilization
Doomed?" Gwen Hutton's paper on "The Encouragement of
Creativeness" and Helen Fairley's, "The Difference Between Feelings
and Emotions," were also very interesting. Helen's paper was given
at the annual banquet at Union College. Lloyd Harvey's excellent paper on "The Psychology of Conversion," and Jim Smith's
on "The Relation of Physics and Philosophy" completed the series.
Criticism led by Professor Henderson, Andy Broatch, Ivy
Dezall, Art Wilson, and Gertrude Day provoked enjoyable

Varsity Christian Union
AVING completed another year, the Varsity Christian Union
may look back upon it with satisfaction and assurance for
continued success.
The Union has for its aims the proclamation and defense of
the Gospel. It also seeks to stimulate personal faith and to further
evangelistic work among students by upholding the Fundamental
Truths of Christianity. To such truths it tries to present a well-
rounded witness, both spiritual and intellectual.
The activities of the group are many and varied. Daily meetings are held on the campus at noon hour and take the form of
bible-study, prayer groups, and, once a week, the reading of a paper
by one of the members. Also weekly meetings are addressed by
competent men from the city who speak on subjects of interest and
importance to the University students concerning the Christian
xaith. Outside activities take the form of church services conducted
by the Union in the city churches. These have proved very successful and provide a means of showing to non-university people
that Christ is present on the campus in a real and vital way. The
group is also a unit of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of
Canada and is affiliated with the League of Evangelical Students.
Further, each term brings a week-end conference at Lake Whatcom,
Bellingham, with the group of the University of Washington.
The social life of the group takes the form of informal
"Squashes" which are held at private homes and where the members
enjoy fellowship through games, songs, and entertainment.
The executive for the year consisted of: President, Paul Campbell; Vice-President and Treasurer, Bernice Atkinson; Secretary,
Bruce Bryson; Advertising Secretary, David Rice; Librarian, Gertrude Day.
Historical Society
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Two)
in a paper on "British Columbia and Confederation" dealt with
the period from the union of the two colonies to Confederation and
William Roper followed this with "Political History of British
Columbia since Confederation." Harold Gibbard in dealing with
"Some Aspects of British Columbia's Industrial Development"
showed great familiarity with his topic. The final paper of the
year by Katie Thiessen on "The Third Mediterranean History"
dealt in a delightful manner with British Columbia and her future
on the Pacific.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Dr. W.
N. Sage; President, Isabel Bescoby; Vice-President, Willard Ireland; Secretary-Treasurer, Mary Wallace.

The Society of Thoth
AS IN years past, the highlight in the campus activities of the
Society of Thoth was the Annual Homecoming Ballet. This
year the Royal Egyptian Ballet presented the legend of "Theseus
and the Minotaur," in their own original tradition.
The Ballet portrayed the King (solemnly played by St. John
Madeley, Grand Scribe), who was in the habit of sacrificing captives every year to his pet, the Minotaur (R. A. Pilkington). Prince
Theseus (G. S. Palmer) voluntarily joins the captives; being freed
by the beautiful Ariadne (coyly and gracefully performed by Dave
Freeman), the Prince slays the Minotaur. A chorus of guards,
captives, etc., completed the cast.
After this brief emergence into the light of publicity, the
Scribes returned to their usual round of activities. Chief among
these was the election of an Honorary Grand Scribe, Professor
F. G. C. Wood. A few neophytes were admitted to take the place
of some of last year's graduates. They will no doubt remember
their initiation for some time.
The Thoth Club takes this opportunity of thanking all those
who helped in the presentation of the Ballet; namely, the directors,
pianist, and costume committee.
The executive included: Honorary Grand Scribe, Prof. F. G. C.
Wood; Grand Scribe, St. John Madeley; Second Scribe, Arthur McCulloch; Scribe of the Papyrus, G. S. Palmer; Keeper of the Baksheesh, Phil. Parker; Torturer-in-Chief, R. A. Pilkington; Assistant Torturer, Nick Mussalem.
[ 105 American Institute of Electrical Engineers
THE U.B.C. Branch of the A.I.E.E. was formed in the fall of
1929, and this year absorbed the Radio Club. The object of
the Society is to promote an interest in electrical engineering. Membership is limited to students in the fourth and fifth years of electrical
engineering, but attendance of members of the lower years is encouraged.
Evening meetings at which papers have been presented by the
members, have been held every second week during the session. On
two occasions motion pictures provided by the courtesy of the Canadian General Electric were shown at the conclusion of the regular
meetings. The Radio Section has been active, having held several
noon-hour meetings as well as conducting experiments in the Radio

E. L C.
THE student branch of the Engineering Institute of Canada was
organized during the year 1927-28 for the purpose of bringing
the student engineer into closer touch with the engineering
Meetings were held every Wednesday noon, at which prominent local and visiting engineers gave short talks on the different
phases of the engineering profession. Trips to various places of
engineering interest were arranged.
This organization supports the purposes of the parent body,
namely, "to facilitate the requirement and interchange of professional knowledge among its members; to promote their professional interests; to encourage original research; to develop and
maintain high standards in the engineering profession; and to enhance the usefulness of the profession to the public."
This year was very successful and many interesting talks were
given as well as moving pictures of educational value.
The executive was as follows: President, E. A. Verner; Vice-
President, E. W. Richardson; and Secretary-Treasurer, E. J.
f 106 l U* B* C. Panhellenic Association
THE U.B.C. Panhellenic Association was established on this
campus in 1928 to benefit the fraternities of the college and to
unify the interests of fraternity and non-fraternity women by cooperation between its members.
The Association is composed of three delegates, (one alumnae,
one senior, and one lower class woman), from each chapter of
the national fraternities on the campus and from each recognized
local sorority.
During this college year of 1931-1932 the executive has been
as follows: Honorary President, Dean Bollert; President, Isabel
Bescoby, Alpha Phi; Vice-President, Frances Darling, Kappa Alpha
Theta; Secretary-Treasurer, Irene Ramage, Alpha Delta Pi.
At present the Association is composed of representatives of
eight international fraternities: Alpha Delta Pi, which was
colonized on this campus in 1931 and which has at present twenty-
six members on the campus; Alpha Gamma Delta which colonized
at U.B.C. in 1930 and which now has twenty-seven collegiate members; Alpha Omicron Pi, a local internationalized in 1931, with
sixteen members at present; Alpha Phi, a local until 1929, now
with twenty-seven members at U.B.C; Delta Gamma, internationalized in 1928, which has twenty-four active members at
present; Gamma Phi Beta, which entered U.B.C. as an international
sorority in 1928, and now has twenty-four campus members;
Kappa Alpha Theta, established here in 1930, which now has
twenty-one women on the campus; and Kappa Kappa Gamma
which was affiliated at U.B.C. as an international fraternity in
1929 and at present has thirty-two members on the campus.
Every women's fraternity has been engaged in some philanthropic work during the year. Alpha Delta Pi provided Christmas
hampers and presented gifts to the Children's Hospital and to the
Marpole Incurable Home. Alpha Gamma Delta held a party for
underprivileged children and gave gifts for the blind at the Incurable Hospital. Alpha Omicron Pi gave a donation to the Province
Christmas Fund. Alpha Phi provided hampers, clothing and toys
for three orphans. Delta Gamma entertained and gave gifts to
twenty orphans. Gamma Phil Beta held a camp for twenty-four
underprivileged children for one month at Boundary Bay during
the summer, and also had a Christmas party for these children.
Kappa Alpha Theta provided a hamper for a family with seven
children. Kappa Kappa Gamma donated the proceeds of a Cabaret
to the underprivileged children of Seymour School.

physical Observatory was the most prominent outside speaker.
Bob Armstrong told the Club of "Diesel Engineers in Modern Railroading," and students gave papers on "Model Aeroplanes."
"Photo-Electricity," "Spluttering," and "Oxygen in the Spectrum
of the Solar Corona."
An innovation this year was a meeting devoted to Faraday,
when students discussed his life and work and demonstrated somp
of his apparatus and experiments.
It was decided this year to buy a suitable picture of Faraday
to commemorate the year's activities. The following officers were:
Honorary President, Dr. Hebb; Honorary Vice-President, Dr.
Shrum; President, Arthur McCulloch; Vice-President, John Law-
rance; Secretary-Treasurer, Lyle Stewart; third member of Committee, A. C. Young.
The Literary Forum
N this the third year of the Forum's life as a club of restricted
membership, we find it as flourishing and healthy as the hard
work of its builders, the Women's Literary Society, guaranteed.
This year at its fortnightly noon-hour meetings, a series of papers
on the lives of great women proved to be a real success in keeping
up the regular attendance of the thirty members. In the second
term the papers were supplemented by reviews of current plays
and books.
A few social gatherings helped the members to become further
acquainted and to discuss informally the Club's ambitions. The
skit at Hi-Jinks was well received in spite of an almost complete
lack of preparation.
This year, as in all preceding ones of the Forum's life, sincere
thanks are due to the never-tiring Honorary President, Dean Bollert,
who planned and helped with the program of the year.
The executive for the current year was: Honorary President,
Dean Bollert; President, Kathleen Crosby; Vice-President, Isabella
Arthur; and Secretary-Treasurer, Lilian Youds.

The Chess Club
THIS season has been the most successful the Chess Club has had
since it was forced to move from the Arts building to the Gym.
The membership is larger and keener, and some strong players have
been developed. For the benefit of its members the club subscribes
to the British Chess Magazine.
In the autumn a ten-second Lightning Tournament was held,
and was won by the president, Reid Fordyce. Reid also won the
Handicap Tournament after much strenuous play. The Spring
Tournament has yet to be held, and will be divided into major
and minor divisions. This tournament determines the club
Due to the kind efforts of our Honorary President, Dr. Shrum,
a match was played with the Faculty. The match was held at the
home of Dr. Shrum and was won by the club 8-2. This fine win
has caused the club to arrange a match with the Vancouver Chess
Club, to be played sometime in March.
Much of the season's success has been due to the executive,
and especially to its energetic president. The executive for the year
was: Honorary President, Dr. Shrum; President, R. Fordyce; Vice-
President, A. McCulloch; Secretary-Treasurer, G. McHaltie; Boards
Committee, S. Jackson, N. Nemetz. S. Jackson was match-captain
for the year.
La Causerie
T A CAUSERIE has been carried on along the same lines as in
"^ former years. The meetings were held fortnightly and members were most kind in lending their homes on these occasions.
The greatest benefit has come to the members of the club
through Mme. Darlington's helpfulness in improving pronunciation
and promoting greater fluency in conversation. Games and singing
were the features of some evenings, and talks on literature and
customs of different parts of France by members and visitors gave
variety and interest to others. A special feature of the session was
the musical soiree at the home of President Klinck, attended by members of all three French clubs.
Executive for the session 1931-32 was: Honorary President,
Mme. Darlington; President, Betty Allen; Vice-President, Rosemary Winslow; Secretary-Treasurer, Rika Wright.

Der Deutshe Verein
HILE the purpose of the German Club is chiefly to provide
practice in speaking the language, the organization actually
offers much more by the high standard of its programs, and indeed
constitutes an important supplement to the regular courses in
German literature and thought. This has been particularly true
for the past year, during which many interesting and profitable
meetings have been held.
Among the most memorable of these may be mentioned a talk
on the contemporary social and political status of Germany, given
by a prominent Berlin newspaper correspondent; an evening of
German music at the home of Dr. A. F. B. Clark, where several
masterpieces of the great German composers were played and discussed; and two accounts of visits to Germany, illustrated by lantern slides, which were given by members of the Modern Languages
Department. Most present in the memory of members, however, is
doubtless a program of the beautiful "Lieder" of Schubert, Schumann and Brahms, which were sung by Mrs. G. G. McGeer of this
The entire success of the Club is due to the members of the
German Department, who constitute the Honorary Executive.
Thanks is also owing to those who have been so kind as to lend
their homes for meetings, or who have otherwise contributed to

The Executive for the year was as follows: President, William
Kennett; Vice-President, Miss Katie Thiessen; Secretary, Ray Brunt.
The Forest Club
THE objects of the Forest Club are to promote interest in forestry
and lumbering, and to establish contact with men engaged in
those activities.
Noon hour meetings are held as arranged by the executive,
usually twice a month. The regular program is a talk by a forester
or lumberman, followed by discussion. Some meetings are held in
conjunction with the students' branch of the Engineering Institute
of Canada.
Occasional social evenings are held; and each spring a field
trip is made to some nearby forest industry. Past trips have included the Abernethy Lougheed Logging Co. at Alco, The Commercial Lumber Co. at Haney, and the Barnet Mill.

The Mathematics Club
THE Mathematics Club has had a successful season this year,
having held very interesting meetings regularly once every two
weeks. This club is closed, consisting of twenty-five members, who
are in the main undergraduates taking honor courses and graduates
taking master's courses in mathematics. The purpose of the meetings is to arouse the interest of the members in more advanced work
in the various branches of Mathematics. The speakers are usually
professors or graduate students.
Among the speakers and subjects for this session have been

Mr. F. Waites; Vice-President, Mr. R. Maclean; Secretary-Treasurer, Miss G. Humphreys.
[ in J Parliamentary Forum
VARSITY makes another venture into the realm of public speaking. Debating on the campus has been entirely reorganized
so that at last this important phase of University activity seems to
be on a sound working basis. Very soon after the Fall term opened
organization meetings were held for the purpose of drawing up the
constitution and formulating rules of order. The new Forum is
modelled along parliamentary lines. With its Speaker of the
House, Government and Opposition it aims to provide experience
in speaking and self-expression for a large number of students.
Adopting the parliamentary form of debate enables as many as
twenty students to speak at one meeting and does away with any
extensive preparation on the part of four chosen victims. The
fortnightly meetings are open to all students of the University, give
everyone an equal chance, and seem a sure method of training speakers
of sufficient ability to bring home the coveted McGoun cup.

Members of the Parliamentary Forum are very fortunate in
having Professor J. Friend Day as Honorary President and as
Speaker. Professor Day's advice and coaching has been of great
value to the students and much of the organization's success is due
to him.
The executive for this year is as follows: Honorary President,
Professor J. Friend Day; President, Eleanore Walker; Vice-President, Kenneth Beckett; Secretary, Frank Christian; Treasurer,

The McGoun series did not bring to this University much in
the way of laurels, nevertheless there can be no doubt that the contests both in Vancouver and Winnipeg were far from one-sided.
Paul Campbell and William Whimster represented U.B.C. at
Manitoba while Nathan Nemetz and Eleanore Walker met the team
from Alberta here. At both places, U.B.C. obtained one out of
three votes which is actually a much better record than has been
credited to this University in inter-collegiate debating for some time.

The Players' Club
THE year 1931-32 opened for the Players' Club on a note of
deep regret as it became generally known that Professor F. G. C.
Wood had definitely decided to retire from active participation in
the Club's work after fifteen years of invaluable services as Honorary President and Director. The Club was fortunate in obtaining Dr. F. C. Walker's acceptance of that position. The Advisory
Board, consisting of Mrs. James Lawrence, Miss Dorothy Jefferd,
Mrs. Gordon Shrum, Dr. F. C. Walker and Dr. W. A. Carrothers,
selected four entertaining plays of different types for the Christmas
production. The evening opened with "Part Time Job," a comedy,
illustrating the difficulties of a "working wife." The cast consisted
of Nancy Carter, Arts '34; Jane Stevenson, Arts '32; Olive Nor-
grove, Arts '34; Marjorie Patterson, Arts '32; and Doug. Brown,
Arts '33.    Miss Jefferd and Mrs. Shrum directed the play.
"Hunt The Tiger," a fantastic piece in which an eccentric
Parisian nobleman persuades would-be suicides to amuse him by
shooting at each other in his darkened parlor, was directed by Dr.
Walker. John Emerson, Arts '34, and Betty Jack, Arts '33, acted
well as the eccentric nobleman and the beautiful but jilted Mme. de
V., while Hugh Palmer, Arts '35, took the role of the mournful
"Vindication," a play on a tragic theme, was directed by
Sydney Risk. The feature of the play was the fine performance of
Naoma Benyas, as the ill-used daughter. Margaret Powlett, Arts
'34; Alistair Taylor, Aggie '32; Frances Tremayne, Arts '32; and
Rann Matthison, Arts '35, completed the cast.
"The Tender Passion," a piece in a lighter vein, portrayed
night scenes on the London Embankment. The scenic effects were
well carried out and afforded a good background for the philosophic
drolleries of Frank Miller, playing the half-tipsy tramp. Others
in the cast were Eleanor Walker, Arts '33; Dave Martin, Theology;
Fred Hobson, Arts '35; and Bob McKeown, Arts '35. The play
was directed by Mrs. Lawrence and Dr. Carrothers.
Sir J. M. Barrie's play "Alice-Sit-By-the-Fire," a success of
former years, was chosen for this year's Spring production. Careful attention was paid to the costumes, which took us back to the
days of the motoring veil and the narrow trousers for men. Sydney
Risk was selected by the Executive, in collaboration with the Advisory Board, to direct the play. This has been his first major engagement as a producer. Here's wishing him success! Marjorie
Ellis, the star of last year's performance, again secured the leading
lady's role as Alice Grey. Jack Ruttan, another representative from
last year's cast, obtained the part of the Colonel, while Betty Wilson,
new to Spring play experiences, won the role of Amy.    These, to-

ITH the second successful production of a Gilbert and Sullivan
light opera, the Musical Society has established a tradition of
which it may well be proud. The opera "H.M.S. Pinafore" which
culminated this year's activities met with very favorable comment
from all sides. Its success reflects the able and painstaking direction
of Mr. Haydn Williams and the faithful work of members in all
departments of the society.
Though the vocal and instrumental ability of the membership was, with few exceptions, of quite average quality, an ensemble
with almost professional technique was built up during the year.
The cast and orchestra were made to feel from the start that success
depended upon mutual accord and co-operation rather than upon
the performance of a few outstanding artists. That this ideal of
team work was realized was apparent at the final production in
which the choruses and ensembles reached a perfection seldom found
in an amateur group.
Among the principals were several members who had proved
their worth in "The Pirates of Penzance" last year: Sophie Witter
as "Buttercup"; Alice Rowe as "Josephine"; Nelson Allen as
"Deadeye"; and Robert Brooks as "Sir Joseph Porter." New and
excellent material was uncovered in the persons of Neil Perry as
"Ralph"; Robert Harcourt as "Captain Corcoran"; and Charles
Armstrong as "Boatswain." The remaining principal roles, though
of less prominence, were very adequately filled by Kalfe Coles as
"Hebe"; Gordon Stead as "Carpenter"; and Gordon Wilson as
"Sergeant of Marines." The youngest midshipman was Douglas
Todd. A very valuable contribution was made by Mr. Edgar
Smith who directed the dramatic work of the production.
In addition to this major activity, the Society has made several
noteworthy contributions to the musical life of the campus. Following the precedent set in former years, five noon-hour recitals
were given periodically throughout the session to which the student
body and public were invited. A special attempt was made to present programmes of high musical order, and judging from the large
and appreciative audiences, this met with general approval. Among
the outstanding items of these recitals were: a Rachmaninoff Suite
for two pianos played by Isobel Campbell and Vera Ings; and a
String Quintette composed of Ira Swartz, Grace Dresser, Marie
Bryant, Wm. Jones and Maurice Miles. Other artists who contributed were: Louie Stirk, contralto; Norma Gallia, pianist; Rees
Macconachie;   violinist.     The programme of the last  recital  was

gether with Nancy Symes, Mary Darnborough, Swanhild Matthi-
son, Marjorie Stewart, Betty Jack, and Harold Lando constituted
a good cast.
During the time that the Barrie Jackson Players were in Vancouver many of the Club members were able, through the generosity
of Dr. F. C. Walker, who reduced the price of the tickets at his own
expense, to enjoy a "theatre night" witnessing these excellent
players in "She Stoops to Conquer."
On February 21, a gathering of Players' Club members, past
and present, was held at the home of Mrs. Hastings, 1059 Chilco
Street. Alice Morrow, the President, on behalf of the Club, presented Professor F. G. C. Wood, with a silver tea tray, in appreciation of his wholehearted devotion as Honorary President to the
service of the Club, since its inception in 1915. The affair, friendly
and informal in tone, was much enjoyed.
The Executive of the Club during the year consisted of: President, Alice Morrow; Vice-President, Archie Dick; Secretary, Betty
Wilson; Treasurer, R. I. Knight: Committee, Ruth Bostock, W. H.
Cameron, Jack Ruttan. The last named member was elected in
place of Harold Tull who did not return to Varsity this year.

A new departure was made this year in the formation of an
English Madrigal Group. Under the leadership of Dr. MacDonald
this group made very creditable progress and rendered several numbers at one of the noon hour recitals. Its membership comprised:
Alice Rowe, Betty Smith, Sophie Witter, Jean Fraser, Neil Perry,
Frank Snowsell, Bob Harcourt and Bob Brooks.
During "Homecoming" festivities the Society produced an
original skit entitled "H.M.S. Pint-o-Beer." Its author and producer, Gordon Wilson, constructed the action skilfully around
several popular sailor shanties.
The Society enjoyed a number of social functions during the
session: the reception of new members at Killarney early in the
fall term; the Christmas party and rehearsal at the home of Mrs.
Brooks; and the delightful reception at the home of Mrs. MacDonald after the last night of "Pinafore."
The Music Committee, composed of Mr. Williams, Dr. MacDonald, Robert Brooks, Nelson Allen, and Sophie Witter was responsible for the choice of music and the arrangement of recitals.
This committee was assisted by an advisory board which included
Dr. Ashton, Dr. Sedgewick and Miss Abernethy.
Members of the executive were as follows: Honorary President,
Dr. W. L. MacDonald; Director, Mr. C. Haydn Williams; President, Robert Brooks; Vice-President, Kathleen McDermot; Secretary, Connie Plommer; Treasurer, Terry Crawley; Men's Representative, Nelson Allen; Women's Representative, Betty Smith;

major portion of the student body about the Awards Committee
or the work which it has to perform. As a branch of Men's
Athletics, the Committee has the duty of granting awards to deserving men. These awards include Honorary Awards, Big Blocks,
Small Blocks and Plain Letters.
Decisions are based on standards set by the Men's Athletic
Association, but rest finally upon the judgment of the Committee.
An attempt is made to adhere as nearly as possible to the same
standards from year to year. Perhaps most students do not realize
that time played is not the sole criterion upon which an award is
based. The Committee also considers carefully the type of sportsmanship displayed, and the enthusiasm of the players for the sport.

The Men's Basketball Club
THIS year the Men's Basketball Club has been laboring under the
responsibility that last year's Senior team put on our shoulders.
When the Canadian Championship was brought to our campus by
the "wonder team" of 1930-31, we found ourselves again working
with renewed energy to retain our prestige. At the time of writing
all seems favorable for the Dominion title adorning the trophy case
in the library for another year.
Four teams have been entered in the city leagues: The Senior
"A" in the G.V.A.A., having been unable to arrive at a satisfactory
understanding with the Vancouver and District league. The Senior
"B" and Intermediate "A" and "B" teams have continued their
associations with the Vancouver and District league and everything
looks favorable for successful seasons for all of them.
The first team took a strenuous "barnstorming" trip during
the Christmas vacation and won games from the University of
Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, Regina, Moose Jaw, and
Calgary. Games were lost to University of Manitoba, which cost
us the Rigby trophy, Lethbridge, Raymond and the University of
Washington. This team also took a pre-season tour of Vancouver
Island, breaking even in wins and losses.
The most notable victory to date has been our win over the
Multnomah Athletic Club of Portland, Ore., and shows the true
ability of this year's squad.
The executive of the Club is made up of the following men:
President, Lome Falconer; Vice-President, Jim O'Neil; Secretary-
Treasurer, Cec. Ritchie; Team Managers, Jim O'Neil, Douglas Reid,
Eric Benson, Douglas McCrimmon.
Senior "A" Basketball Team
FALCONER, President. Lome has handled the team and the
executive work with success through one of the Club's most trying
HENDERSON, coach. Arnold has continued his playing successes and now is directing a great team of his own moulding from
the bench rather than the floor.
DR. THORPE, Physician. "Doc" gave the team last year the
required edge to win games that counted. This year his work has
even surpassed that of the 1930-31 campaign.

OSBORNE, Captain. "Tony," last year's youngster and this
year's giant; one of the fastest men in basketball and one of its
greatest players.
MclNTYRE, Guard. Small and fast, with a head for basketball.
"Bucky" has been helping to win games.
ARMSTRONG, Guard. "String" is probably the most slippery
guard in B.C. Whenever he goes down the blind side he very seldom
fails to come back without two points.
McDonald, Guard. "Truck" got into the Washington
squad and was in his glory. Even Antonvich couldn't get away
with anything.
Straight, Guard. "Left" has a "bullet" pass and a check
that is hard to get around.    Watch him.
Mayers, Forward. "Wally" is without a doubt one of the
greatest basketball players in the Dominion. With two Canadian
titles to his credit he is now looking for the third.
Lee, Forward. "Cy" is one of last year's mainstays. A good
shot and a tricky dribble have brought him success.
CAMPBELL, Forward. As a rebound artist he is unbeatable.
And "Pi" has often been noted as one of the most colorful players
in B.C.
NICHOLSON, Forward. "Laurie" is a necessary part of the
U.B.C. machine, a finished player under the opposing basket and a
great team man.
WRIGHT, Forward. Ken is one of our two rookies to make
good. His blocking and interference along with a smooth shot
make him a coming player.
WALMSLEY, Forward. "Jock" played his first senior basketball against Portland this term. If he continues to improve the
way he has, his basketball will be even better than his hockey or
ROOT, Forward. A man that fits well both as guard or forward and plays a good combination game.
McCrimmon, Assistant Manager. Doug, has taken over the
duties that are closely associated with the team. He has handled
his job with great efficiency and ability.

COMPLETE reorganization of the Senior "B" team was necessary this year as only two of the last year's squad returned.
Despite this handicap the team put up a very creditable showing,
finishing but two games behind the league leaders. Jimmy O'Neil

he has high hopes of a provincial title.
The personnel:
RANN MATTHISON, Forward.    A hard worker and a fine team
man with every prospect of playing Senior "A" next year.
BlFF McLEOD, Forward.    His speed enabled him to outwit
more than one guard.
JlM Bardsley, Guard.    As we go to press, Jim, an atom of
determination, has just been given a Senior "A" tryout.

THE Intermediate "A" Basketball team had a fairly successful
season this year. Although handicapped by the lack of proper
coaching they hit their stride after Christmas and out of ten games
won five. Many men were developed this year who will undoubtedly be in senior ranks before they graduate.
The personnel:
Carman Ridland, Captain. A tall, well-built forward with
perfect style. Carman was a great factor in the team's success and
will undoubtedly move to higher ranks.
Ray TURNER, Vice-Captain. A lanky forward who proved
his worth by high scores in each game. Ray comes to us from
John Prior. John hits the six foot mark. He is deadly on
the basket and a very consistent forward.
Charles Hardwick. Charlie alternated on forward and
guard where he served equally well. He is the hardest fighter on
the team and is always very reliable.

132 The "Big Four" Canadian Rugby Team
ALTHOUGH Canadian Rugby at U.B.C. was at a disadvantage
at the commencement of this season as compared to last, it can
be truly said that the 1931-32 season finished in a blaze of glory.
Unfortunately it was not possible, owing to financial difficulties, to hold last September the pre-season training camp which
was the distinctive feature inaugurated in the Canadian Rugby
Club's activities a year ago. This meant that Dr. Burke was forced,
when Varsity opened, to field, almost immediately, a team in the
Big Four that was not adequately trained as compared to the other
teams in the league. This, it is felt, was responsible for U.B.C.'s
showing in the Big Four
However, in face of this handicap, Dr. Burke, with the assistance of Joe Price, did a very praiseworthy job. Varsity, when defeated, lost by close scores and formed strong opposition. Victories
were registered over Victoria, New Westminster and Meralomas.
The Big Four games served in place of the training camp with the
result that the Varsity team was gradually conditioned, experienced,
and improved. The acquisition of Doug. Mclntyre who returned to
college helped greatly to strengthen the team. Gav. Dirom's weight
and strength in line crashing meant yards to Varsity, while Art
Murdock's kicking was brilliant. In Dick Farrington, Varsity has
one of the best ends in the province. He, along with Captain Ernie
Peden, made the Western All Star Grid Squad.
The Intercollegiate game with the University of Manitoba at
Athletic Park, November 14, was the big event of the season.
The U.B.C. players prepared themselves well through intensive,
conscientious training for this event. The game was marked by the
determined manner in which every player fought. This game remains vividly in the minds of all. U.B.C. defeated the University
of Manitoba 4 to 3, and once again the Hardy Cup, emblematic of
the Western Intercollegiate Championship, was brought to the University, a fitting climax to conclude the season.
The success of this game financially was due to the Canadian
Rugby Club Executive, Johnny McLean, as president of the Club,
being in charge. In this, as in the year's Canadian Rugby activities,
he has been in large part responsible for the success attained. Roy
McDonald, Vice-President and Business Manager, handled the
ticket sales, while Archie Dick acted as Publicity Manager. Al.
Pike was Strip Manager throughout the season.
Among those who will leave us this year through graduation
are Captain Ernie Peden and Larry Jack, middles; Jim Stewart
and Jimmie Mitchell, insides; and Gav. Dirom, half. The absence
of these men will be greatly felt when the team takes the field next

The Senior City Canadian Rugby Team
"DEFORE Christmas this team was known as the Junior Rugby
team and also as the Interscholastic Rugby team. As such,
they played V. A. C, Meralomas and Cougars in the Junior League,
and Magee and Vancouver College in the Interscholastic League.
While they did not win either of these leagues, the team, nevertheless,
showed up well and gave the other teams lots of competition.
Since Christmas Dick Farrington and Keith Hedreen, of Big
Four fame, have been putting the boys through workouts every day
in the week. Last week the boys surprised even their most ardent
supporters by taking the strong V. A. C. team by the score of 6-0.
Joe Dwyer's superlative kicking and the fight of each individual
member accomplished this. With V. A. C, Cougars and Meralomas
again as opponents, Varsity can expect many struggles.
Interscholastic Canadian Rugby
HPHE Interscholastic Canadian Rugby team worked hard this year
but victory did not come our way. Only three teams were
entered in this league: Vancouver College, Magee High School and
Varsity. Varsity played its first game on October 14 and defeated
Vancouver College, last year's champions 10-8 after a hard-fought
battle. This was Varsity's first and only victory. We were never
decisively beaten, but the other teams were just a little better in their
co-ordination on the field. Each team played the other teams twice
and the Le Bray Trophy, emblematic of league championship, was
won by Magee High School. Incidentally, Magee received coaching
from our own Dr. Burke, Joe Price and Clare Donaldson.
The closeness of the scores indicates the evenness of these teams
and Varsity's failure may be attributed to the injudicious mixture
of raw material with seasoned Senior City players.
The failure of Freshmen to turn out in sufficient numbers to
make a whole team was disappointing, but we hope this will be
remedied next year as the game increases in popularity.
Among the Freshmen, Beaumont, Rush, Odium, Poole and
Mather played consistently well. Morrow, Hisette and Knight
stepped down from Senior City company to lend a hand.
The whole team is to be praised for their spirit on the field
and for their regular attendance at practices.
The team was ably managed by Arnie Cliff.
[ 135 ] 136 English Rugby Club
HP HE season 1931-32 has been an extremely eventful one for the
-"- English Rugby Club. Last September the Club once more got
under way with the most enthusiastic turn-outs ever recorded.
With eleven of last year's McKechnie Cup team back and
nearly all of "Mcllmoyle's Mudlarks," it was decided to put two
teams in the Miller Cup League, This was done, the first rating
backs playing for "U.B.C." and the forwards for "Varsity." Each
team played good football but the division of strength told as the
"Varsity" team won only two games and tied one, while "U.B.C."
won one and tied one. It gave more players exceptionally good
experience in the senior division, however, and helped to build up
an exceptionally strong McKechnie Cup team. The strength of
the present Miller Cup team was easily shown when they played
the "Occasional," the Varsity Graduate team, and beat them decisively last Thanksgiving in an exhibition match, and in a league

On November 12, Varsity played its old rivals, the Vancouver Rep. Keen interest was aroused for this game and a record
number of students attended it. To arouse even greater support
a pep-meeting and a miniature "Rugbyssey" heralded the game.
The play was keenly contested throughout but Varsity went down
to a glorious defeat in the second half.
On January 9 the team travelled to Victoria to meet the
Victoria Rep., and by their brilliant showing convinced all who
support the game that Varsity has a team of which it may justly
be proud.
The game, played before a huge crowd, and put on the air for
its Vancouver supporters, was one of the most thrilling witnessed
in years. At half time the score was 6-6. Early in the second half,
Victoria scored and converted, making it 11-6. It was here that
the team's fighting spirit came to the fore. With Howie Cleveland
off the field with minor concussion suffered in the game, and playing
one man short, Varsity drove time and again at Victoria's line and
finally, in the last few minutes of the game, scored twice. It was
here that Phil Barratt, playing his last McKechnie Cup match, made
history, for it was this red-haired flash that made both the winning
tries—Score 12-11 for Varsity!
With such a team, the prospects for winning the McKechnie
Cup trophy, emblematic of rugby supremacy in B. C, look bright,
to say the least.

The Club has suffered seriously from injuries to players, sickness, and eligibility rules. Ed. Senkler tore a tendon in his ankle
last November; Roy Maconnachie damaged his leg in the first McKechnie Cup tilt; Moyes, a new-comer from Victoria, went down
with appendicitis; Cleveland suffered a bad spill that injured his
head; and Ken Mercer has a poisoned leg.
This year the Club was extremely fortunate in securing
"Buck" Yeo for coach. It is due to his untiring efforts and loyalty
to the Club that we have been so successful. Kenny Carlisle gave
him great assistance in helping to train the forwards.
Captain Dick Nixon deserves a lot of credit for all his work
in arranging things and in keeping up the team morale and interest.
In regard to the success of the Club as a whole, we must thank
Ted Clark, our hard-working president. He is untiring in his
efforts in handling the business of the Club.
CAPT. Dick Nixon—Hard working breakaway. Always on
the ball and a good tackle.
ART MERCER—Vice-Captain.    Another tricky three-quarter.
Phil BARRATT—Leads the back division. Lots of experience
and does most of the scoring.
Bobby Gaul—Fastest man on the team. A beautiful swerve
and kick.
KEN MERCER—An excellent five-eighths. Plays his first year
in McKechnie Cup.
"Howie" Cleveland—Peer of fullbacks. A deadly tackle
and a safe kick.
Dave Ellis—Tricky three-quarter. Good tackle and can
see any opening.
Chris Dalton—A fast wing man; can always be relied on
for plunging through for gains.
ART Murdoch—Speed and punch. Plays either three-quarter
or fullback.

always breaks up any opposing rush.

THIS year the team has led a varied existence. At the start of
the year Varsity entered four teams in the different leagues, two
first division, one second and one third.
During the first half of the league it was soon seen that changes
had to be made in the second division, for in every match they were
outweighed to a man. To their credit let it be said that they never
lost heart and in spite of the results their play did improve.
With the ending of the first round of the Miller Cup series in
the senior division, it was decided that one of the Varsity senior
teams should be dropped. Consequently the original second team
was moved down to third division and the old senior team took
its place.
Prospects now looked better for the second half. This team
had more weight and speed but were woefully lacking in team play.
This fact was borne out on January 19th when they played the
league-leading North Shore All-Blacks, the score being 11 -0. However, during the game they showed they had the material since a

HP HE Third Division English Rugby team had a somewhat in-
JL volved career before it finally settled down to win games, being
made up of members of two original teams entered in second and
third divisions. They were coached by Esson Young and captained
by J. Grubbe and G. Sanderson. After the Christmas holidays,
clue to a shakeup in the league, the second division team was dropped
to third. Then two third teams were combined under the coaching
of Roy Maconnachie, a McKechnie Cup star, to make a strong team
for the third division. G. Sanderson was elected captain. The
team won its first game against a league-leading team, playing a real
class of rugby. If this brand of rugby is kept up throughout the
rest of the season there is no reason why the team should not finish
on top.

VARSITY entered two teams in the first division this year, but
since Christmas has had only one. The strength of this team,
united instead of divided, is proving itself, beating Ex-King George,
then the leading team in the Miller Cup, to the tune of 17-3.
Though the opportunity is now gone for winning the Miller Cup
League, the prospects for the Tisdall Cup are exceedingly bright,
and if Varsity wins that, the Rounsefell Cup will probably be won.
Composed of men who play on the McKechnie Cup and the
2nd Division teams, the present Miller Cup team is a distinct threat
in the league.

THE season of 1931-32 saw the Soccer Club uphold the standard
of play set by last year's team. Graduation took almost the
whole of the defense, besides the squad's best forward, but their
successors, both newcomers and former Juniors, have ably filled the
vacant positions.
The Senior Team's record in the league is so far very satisfactory. Their victories, which include one over the league-leading
Regents Club, have placed them in third place. To date, with
three games to be played, only one team has been successful in obtaining full points against the Blue and Gold squad.
Beside the league, the team is entered for the Iroquois Cup,
emblematic of Second Division supremacy, and although the competition has not progressed far, the prospects appear very promising
for Varsity.
Although injuries have as usual caused trouble, the Club has
not suffered as much from this source as in former years.    The in-

juries sustained have been largely of a minor nature and have not
kept the players out for long.
A feature of the games has been the fighting spirit of the team.
Essentially a light and young team, they have continually been faced
by heavier and more experienced opponents, but their record shows
that they have been successful despite these handicaps. The spirit
in their games has won for Varsity the support of the spectators,
even when their prospects of winning were very small.
The line-up is as follows:
JAMES Smith, Outside Right. A fine turn of speed and an
accurate kick with either foot make him a dangerous forward at all
Otis Munday, Inside Right. After an absence of three years
Otis joined the Soccer Club again and has become an indispensable
unit on the forward line.
PAUL KOZOOLIN, Centre Forward. Paul is the most dependable player Varsity has had for years. His extensive knowledge of
the game and his sure kicking make him second to none either at
center half or at centre forward.
David Todd, Inside Left. Dave is a clever dribbler and quick
to take an advantage of any opening.   He is top scorer for the season.
JOHN Waugh, Outside Right. Jock has played at centre half,
right half and outside right, and has made a good job of them all.
Laurie Todd, Outside Left. Laurie possesses great speed, a
powerful kick and a fine quality of courage and team spirit.
Howie Wright, Right Half. When Howie arranged to be
on deck every Saturday, he soon became the most consistent player
on the team.   Previously he did not turn out regularly.
Ernie "Cherub" Costain, Centre Half. Cherub has proven
his worth on the team for two seasons now, and can be depended
upon to turn in a sound game in almost any position.
ARCHIE McDougal, Left Half. Coming up from last year's
Junior squad, Archie made his presence felt, right from the first,
and has earned the honor of being named as the best man on the
GEORGE Grant, Left Fullback. George is also a recruit from
last season's Juniors who has made good in higher company with a
vengeance. Fast and deadly on the tackle, George also has one of
the strongest kicks on the squad.
MILLAR McGill, Right Fullback. Millar has been one of
the mainstays in the Blue and Gold's last line of defense, his coolness
and ability to outguess the other fellow saving his goal time and

[ 145 ] The Canadian Officers* Training Corps
INCE the reorganization of the University of British Columbia
Contingent of The Canadian Officers' Training Corps four
years ago, there has been a steady increase in both interest and membership. Under the command of Lieut.-Col. H. T. Logan, and
now Lieut.-Col. H. F. G. Letson, the corps has gradually become
recognized among the other units of the Canadian Militia as a source
of supply for future trained officer material.
Shooting this year, as in previous years, has attracted much
attention, practices and competitions being carried out both on the
miniature and outdoor ranges. The Rifle Association has taken
part in competition with other Universities in Canada, and in the
Inter-University Rifle Matches. Plans have been prepared for an
indoor rifle range to be built on the Military Reserve near the University, and it is hoped that sufficient funds to carry out the plans
will soon be obtained.
Three officers and thirty-five men of the Corps again made
the trip to Work Point Barracks, Victoria, for the annual training
during the Christmas holidays. While in camp, various tactical
schemes were carried out, as well as Rifle, Lewis, and Vickers gun
drill, etc. This vacation was greatly enjoyed by all taking part,
and despite the short time in camp, a considerable amount of training was accomplished.
The classes this year for the "A" and "B" certificates were the
largest that have ever been held. The class training for the "A"
certificate, which is the equivalent of a qualification for a Lieutenancy, has an enrollment of eighteen, while the "B" certificate class,
qualifying for a Captaincy, has an enrollment of nine. Examinations for both these classes were held on the 7th and 8th of March.
The course in flying given by the R.C.A.F. to members of the
C.O.T.C. who are taking Applied Science has proved very popular.
Last year eleven men were registered at Camp Borden from here.
Also the Canadian Small Arms School held at Camp Sarcee attracted
two of our members.
This year a course of noon-hour lectures was given by Col.
W. W. Foster, D.S.O., V.D., O.C. 23 Inf. Bde., supplemented by
lectures from officers of the Corps. These lectures were well attended, and proved very interesting and instructive.
An improvement which has been noticed around the Orderly
Room in the basement of the Arts Building is our new Common
Room. Comfortably furnished with rugs, easy chairs, and magazines, the room provides a meeting place for members of the corps,
as well as an additional lecture room for small classes in Lewis and
Vickers gun drill. This room has been added to our already existing
Orderly Room, Quartermaster's Stores, and Armoury.

THE Boat Club has its headquarters at the Vancouver Rowing
Club premises near the main entrance to Stanley Park. While
this is not an ideal location, yet we must be content until sufficient
funds are raised to establish a house of our own with new equipment. Owing to this handicap Varsity is in no position to compete
with our southern neighbors this year, but we hope to have races
with Brentwood College and the Vancouver Rowing Club before
the spring term is concluded.
With the opening of the fall term the Club commenced activities
with a splendid number of freshmen and a few upper-classmen. Due
to lack of veteran members our work consisted mainly of learning
the rudiments of rowing. The freshmen members progressed
rapidly so that at the first regatta the senior eight found themselves
in no shape to compete with the eager frosh. Science in a well-
manned four were equally successful and swept down the course

The Men's Grass Hockey Club
THE history of the Men's Grass Hockey Club for 1931-32 has
been a varied mixture of both good and bad fortune.
The Club began the season with a successful banquet in the
University cafeteria, at which the honorary president and coach
expressed their belief in the future of grass hockey in spite of apparent difficulties. At this meeting it was decided that owing to
the graduation of so many good players last year it would be better
to enter only one team in the Mainland League instead of two as
in previous years. With even this change the team dropped to a
position second from the bottom in the league standing. As the
new players have become more proficient, the quality of play has
increased steadily during the season. The lack of strong players
at present we hope to be only temporary. The team received another set-back with the loss of its captain, Bob Spurrier, who left
for England in January.
The good luck of the Club, however, is a little more permanent.

of the Club were voted in last spring, after they had proved their
worth on both the wood-pile and the trail (not to mention the
culinary achievements of the co-ed climbers). The enrollment of
the Club again stands this year at over fifty active members.
On April 24-27 another attempt was made on Mount Baker
by a party of thirteen, including Professor Christie and four women

day, nine of the members gained the peak; a number of the party
taking skis to over nine thousand feet.

policy of the Club to hold monthly luncheons, thereby strengthening
the bonds of friendship among its members and among the various
sports on the campus.

any event and help in any athletic activity on the campus.

THE Golf Club has enjoyed a progressive season during the session of 1931-32 under President Arnold Powell and Vice-President Myrtle Tingley. The usual tournaments have been held: the
handicap, the open championship of the University, and a two ball
mixed foursome inaugurated this year.
The trip of the men's team to the University of Washington,
owing to financial conditions, has been postponed. Varsity's only
team match up to date has been against Magee High School.
Probably the greatest factor against matches is the weather,
which has been decidedly poor for golf. With the approach of
spring a series of matches have been lined up.
In the Open Championship, last year's winner, Charlie Mc-
Cadd'en, is favored to repeat, but will be pressed hard by Pugh,
Prevost and Castleton, newcomers to the team. Pugh was previously on the first team of the University of Washington.
The Golf Club has this year made great progress in one direction at least—that of finance. Although the trip to Seattle could not

A FTER two or three years of inactivity, tennis at U.B.C. has
^-^staged a remarkable comeback under the energetic guidance of
Reg. Price and his executive.
A number of innovations have been introduced tending to draw
closer together those at the University interested in Tennis, and
thus greatly strengthening the Club. Foremost of these is the imposition, for the first time, of a nominal Club fee, which covers also
entrance in the annual Fall tournament. Only those paying the
fee are allowed to participate, thus eliminating those not really
interested. As a result, the tournament this Fall was the most
successful for some years. Among the better known players taking
part were Phyllis White, Gladys Munton, Ruth Witbeck, Ann
Hartley; and George Yoshi, Colin Milne, Harold Lando, Reg.
Price, and Cliff Yolland.
The Club has also been successful in its application to Council
for club hours on the courts, and members now have the exclusive

ALWAYS one of the most popular athletic groups of the University is the Badminton Club, and in spite of the depression
it has again come to the fore this year with a membership of well
over forty. During the year the gymnasium has been used two
evenings and one afternoon a week for practice and there have been
enthusiastic turn-outs at all times.
Ian Campbell has held down the position of President this
season, and has always been on the job to see that we use only our
allotted number of shuttlecocks and that all lights are turned off
before retiring. Assisting him on the hard-working executive are:
Ellen Gleed, Vice-President; George Weld, Secretary-Treasurer; and
Frances Tremayne and Dennis Nicol, the committee. Mr. W. J.
Van Dusen is the Honorary President, while Mr. W. Black of the
Department of Education is the Honorary Vice-President.
The annual tournament of the Club unfortunately is held each
spring just after going to press. This year it will be under the
direction of Ken Atkinson.    The winners of the singles are club
(Continued on  Page One Hundred and Sixty)
[ 159 ] Badminton Club
(Continual   from   Page  One   Hundred  and  Pifty nine)
champions for the following year, and silver cups are presented to
the winners in the open and handicap singles and doubles. Last
year Nic Solly won the men's singles for the third year and became
the possessor of the Vacy Fernie trophy. After having been our
leading light for five years he is now disporting himself in the land
of the mid-night sun, growing husky and hardy. Phae Van Dusen,
winner of the girls' singles for 1930-31, is for the second season
proving herself a dependable member of the "B" team.
Owing to the greater amount of material available this year,
Varsity has entered a team in the "B" division of the Vancouver
and District Badminton League and two in the "C" division. In
spite of some excellent playing, these teams continue to fluctuate
somewhere around the middle of the lists, probably due to an excess
of contract bridge and coffee milk-shakes.
On the "B" team Irene Ramage remains first string for the
girls and continues to terrify all opponents with her terrific smash.
Phae Van Dusen is becoming renowned for her forceful shots,
while Ellen Gleed has yet to meet her equal in tricky net places.
Hope Palmer, the new member of the octette, has the makings of
a champion in her style. Terry Holmes, the old dependable, finds
time to tear himself away from his geology books to show Vancouver what the score is, while Ian Campbell still retains his title
of Summerland's Young Hope. Ken Atkinson is the reliable man
of the team, showing equal skill in back-hands and smashes. We
lost a good man at Christmas in the person of Dennis Nicol,
owing to the elegibility rules now in force. Paul Kozoolin has
filled his place admirably and has since brought honor to his Alma
Mater by winning the B. C. Open Championship for boys under 20.
The "C" teams consist of: Margaret Powlett, Margaret Wilson, Margaret Winter, Margaret Palmer, Bunny Pound, Rosemary
Winslow, Frances Tremayne, Molly Hanning, Pat McTaggart-
Cowan, Bill Tremaine, Ralph Moore, Eric Langton, Fred Bogardus,
Reg. Bromily, Joe Wrinch, George Weld.

THIS year the Swimming Club has not enjoyed such an active
season as in former years. This was due, primarily, to the
break-up of the Lower Mainland Swimming League last fall. However, according to latest reports the league is going to resume
activities in the very near future, so the swimmers intend to get
into some effective competition before the end of the term.
In spite of this set-back, the Club has held two successful interclass galas for the Allen and Boultbee Trophy, one each in the fall
and spring terms, both meets being won by Arts '34.
At the beginning of the second term Norman Cox took over the
coaching duties relinquished by Don Tyerman and already a great
improvement is noticeable in many of the swimmers.
The Club has two possible Olympic prospects in Ernie Peden
and Harry Andison, who should give a good account of themselves
at the Olympic trials here this summer.
The outstanding performers for the Club this year have been:
Harry Andison, Ernie Peden,  George Copeland, Jimmie Wilson

[ 161 1 Boxing Club
1COR the past year or two the University Boxing Club has main-
^*- tained a moje or less struggling existence. This is probably due
to the fact that boxing as a sport has had to make way for the more
brutal, if more spectacular sport of wrestling. Last year the club
held its work-outs in one of the down-town gymnasiums, the difficulty in obtaining an instructor presumably making this necessary.
After the Christmas holidays the Club was fortunate in securing the services of a competent instructor, who, as well as having
done considerable professional boxing, is a university graduate.
Several of the most promising ring artists this season are First
and Second Year men who, in spite of the present general depression
in the pugilistic sport, will doubtless prove themselves qualified to
put boxing among the trophy-winning sports of the University.
The Men's Grass Hockey Club
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Fifty-one)
W. G. Black as coach. Largely due to his enthusiasm the practices
have been more effective than ever before, and the quality of play
has improved.
Thanks to the energy of Sid Semple the club has now a permanent playing field, fitted with regulation goals and nets, to the
south of the soccer field. This has resulted in better attendance
at the weekly Wednesday practices, and also in more opportunity
for effective coaching and practice games. Sid Semple also effected
a raise in the status of Grass Hockey from that of a sub-minor
sport to that of a minor.
Graduation should not affect the line-up to any great extent
this year and all in all the prospects for a successful season in 1932-
33 are bright. Next year it should be possible to again enter two
teams in the league and also considerably improve the standing of
the senior team.
The business of the Club has been efficiently executed by the
following officers: Honorary President, Professor H. T. Logan;
Coach, Professor W. G. Black; President, Sidney Semple; Secretary-
Treasurer, Fred Jakeway.

enabling students to obtain reduced rates on the University golf
course with sufficient left over to cover prizes and minor expenses.
Now that the Golf Club has a course close at hand, a method
of raising money, combined with the interest shown by the members,
it is due to become one of the most active clubs on the campus.

use of all courts on the campus from one to five p.m., four afternoons a week. This is reflected in the membership, which now
numbers over fifty.
Another notable step forward this year has been the addition
of two fine new clay courts adjacent to the famed Stadium site.
The Club now has at its disposal the above, two first-class cement
courts, and a grass court.
It is planned to stage a student-faculty match during the
Spring term, and if the Club continues to grow as it is expected to
do next year and the financial situation improves, inter-collegiate
competition should once more become possible.

HPHE Varsity Women's Senior "A" team has been weakened con-
-*- siderably this year. The girls failed to win a play-off position
in the Vancouver and District League.
Jack Barbarie, coach of the World Champion team, was good
enough to come out and do what he could with the girls. He has
taught the team a good deal about basketball and from their standpoint the year has not been wasted.
Jean Whyte, centre of several Varsity champion teams, was
this year's captain. In spite of the fact that Jean had lost all of her
old team mates she was sport enough to come out again and was
the main spirit of the team.
Gladys Munton and Berna Dellert were the only other members of the team who have played Senior "A" before. However,
owing to sickness Berna had to leave us at Christmas. She was
certainly a great loss to the forward line. Bettye Hicks, Andree
Harper and Muriel Clarke all came up from last year's Senior "B"
team, while Jo Reid, Lois Stonehouse and Eileen Parkhill, all out-
of-town girls, played basketball for Varsity for the first time.

University, to act as an advisory board to incoming students, and to
maintain a high standard of awards.
At the beginning of the term all freshettes were interviewed
with the object of getting every girl into a sport. In former years
there has been no way of showing the re-winning of the Big Block
Letter. This year arrangements have been made to award stripes in
the sleeve of the blue sweater, one for each year of winning. The
block was changed to a plain blue and gold "B. C." in chenille.
Just at present the Awards Committee, consisting of the President
of Women's Athletics, President of the Big Block Club and three

The Varsity team was sacrificed at the beginning of the season
to form the U.B.C. squad, and consequently has not been able to
make a very good showing in the league. However, too much cannot be said for the sportsmanship shown by the members of this
team. They have repeatedly met stronger and more experienced
teams but have always shown the same fighting spirit. It is hoped
that next year two divisions will be formed in the league so that
the Varsity will have an opportunity of making a better showing
and improving its league standing. This team has many promising
players who will probably make a place on the U.B.C. next year.
So far this has been a very promising and successful season for
the Club. It is hoped that next year Women's Grass Hockey will
attain a more important place on the campus.

was found to be impossible, though several girls were taught the

S THE first year of the Guide Club draws to a close, the signs
augur favorably for its value in guide work. During the past
year it has been supported and encouraged by the sincere enthusiasm
and advice of prominent guide leaders in the province.
After its organization in the early spring of last year the members spent a happy time at camp. Prominent women in the guide
movement have addressed the club at its monthly meetings throughout the winter. As its contribution to philanthropic work at
Christmas the members assisted at the Girl Guide and Boy Scout
Toy Shop. Active work has been done in guide companies during
the winter and this will continue in the spring. Young as the club
yet is, demands have already been made upon it, and as it grows in
its strength and organization so its field of activity and achievement
will widen.

good showing in the first half of the league and now holds fourth
place. There are yet six games to be played and now that the team
is better organized, the players hope to finish at the top of the
league and so retain the cup won last year.

in conjunction with the Men's Track Club, the women students
participated in a special event at the Y.M.C.A. meet at Hastings

At the fall track meet on the campus oval, the Varsity women

holds the record for the 100 yard dash. The Varsity relay of eight
women broke the previous record for this event the same day.

HPHE Women's Gymnasium Club has been extremely fortunate
■*~ this year in having for its instructress Miss Muriel Harvie, a
U.B.C. graduate, and a former member of the Gym. Club.
The club began its activities for 1931-32 with an informal
tea held at the home of the past president, Kathleen Crosby. The
purpose of the tea was to enable the freshettes to meet Miss Harvie,
and to create in the girls an interest in the work of the club.
Over seventy girls were enrolled in a class which met each Monday at 4:30.
The program has consisted chiefly of marching, floor exercises
and clogging. This year the first time the club put on a skit at
Hi-Jinks in the form of a demonstration of two of their clog dances.

We climbed at dawn, past stream and cedar tree
Into the hostile wilderness of white.
The high peaks frowned above us, grim and bright
Like altars raised to God in Paganry.
Lone altars, bitter-pure above the snow,
Untouched by sacrilege of human feet—
Here, while the hour of triumph still was sweet
Death came to meet us, when the moon was low.
I felt His touch upon the frozen rope,
And all my heart was strangely filled with dread
As He climbed with us in the empty night.
Out from your holds you swayed.  The ice-sheathed slope
Revealed you for an instant on ahead,
Before the mountain hurled you from my sight. •

(From a picture by Holman Hunt)
I had a lonely garden in my heart,
Full of the roses of pain.
Lost in a dim twilight, it dreamed apart
Out of the wind, and the glad, healing rain.
Down from the gates of my garden, a sorrowful way
Wound through a poppied stillness, deathly-sweet;
It was so cruel a path that none dared stray,
For thorns lurked there to pierce the climbing feet.
But into my strange garden, where love was dead,
Came One manger-born—
White-clad, like a white flame, with a glory around His head—
The thorns were under his feet, and the crown on His head
was thorn.
The blood-bright flowers of my garden withered away,
White lilies of peace sprang up where He trod.
The sun came, and the wind, and the rainbow showers of May
And I hid my face, for I knew that He was God.

AY—1688—St. Martin de Londres—an inn. In front of it,
upon a platform, struts and swaggers a splendid figure: red
coat, blue "pantalons," gold braid, brass buttons and blue "kepi"—
a sergeant, if you please, of His Most Puissant Majesty, Le Grand
Monarque. Behind the platform a fire, and over it drips and sizzles
a spitted pig. Around about stands a motley group of vagabonds
and yokels together with a few smart soldiers arrayed like the sergeant and standing at attention. In a few minutes roast pig and wine
are passed amongst them. The figure on the platform pounds and
shouts and exhorts. The yokels begin to flush. Suddenly a
youngster darts forward. He will join. Life in the navy—to die
for one's country—is anything greater. He draws a jacket, some
drawers, some "pantalons." They are drab—not like the other soldiers' bright uniforms. What does it matter—he signs his name—
three years—"Vive le Marine!"—"Vive le Roil"
Toulon—it is December. The South of France, but today it
is cold—a chill drizzle falls. It has been raining for a week and but
a few people are in the streets. Two friends have met and are talking. A clanking noise approaches slowly up the sidewalk. No one
pays any attention. It is probably only some pest from the naval
galley in the harbour. It has been there a month now. A thin voice
interrupts them. "Voulez vous vendre un bateau pour les petites,
Messieurs." It is the recruit of May. He wears a thread-bare shirt
and thin "pantalons." His feet are bare, and around his ankle is a
great chain fastening him to a fellow sufferer. A laugh greets his
words and one of the men spits at him. The other utters an oath and
picks up a stone.   The galley slaves move on.
Midsummer—there is no wind, the sea is calm, the enemy has
been sighted. A whistle blows monotonously—the overseer
marches up and down his gangway, emphasizing each blast of the
whistle with a lash at some poor wretch's back. It is hot—the sun
is scorching—a man falls forward—the overseer lashes him back
into consciousness. They near the enemy. The slaves must utter
no cry of pain—a piece of cork hangs by a string around each neck
—each rasps it in his mouth—so far inside he cannot work his jaws.
The command comes to row faster—Hugo cannot. He slackens,
and the lash cuts his back open. There is a strange feeling in his head.
He tries to pull his hands free—they are chained to the ring on the
oar. He is becoming dizzy. The lash descends again—but this time
he does not feel it. Again, it is the greatest moment of his little life
—he is first of his little circle to be upon the platform. "Vive le
Marine!—Vive le Roi!" The deputy kicks him once more. It is
no use—his tongue hangs out thick and black—already the vermin
lfcave him and swarm upon his fellows. His head falls forward. He
is dead.   The rest keep rowing.

have power to stir the processes of life:
the bud expands into the beauteous flower
and, poppy-like, may only show its heart
while bathed in friendly rays . . . and so the soul
steeping in moonlight knows its fullest hour.
the milder radiance of the mellow moon
unfolds the petals of the soul with flush
of elemental surging that transcends
frosty reason: vagrant thoughts are thawed, and flow
to wash uncharted shores ... so from a flower
blooming in sunshine fragrant breath ascends.
R. G.
Let no one wonder
about my soul—
if broken and stained
or pure and whole.
I want to be buried
on a high hill,
with somewhere near me
a woodland rill
to chant an eternal
funeral song
all day and all night
singing age-long.
I want to be buried
in the brown earth—
of box and embalming
no dollars worth
but simply the clothing
that I die in
and the good soil to welcome
its lifeless kin.
Give me a lofty grave
where breezes blow
laden with perfume
or shrouding snow—
and as for the service,
let someone play
divine violin tunes,
tragic and gay.
Sunshine and moonlight
will bless the place.
Tree-choirs worshipping
in stately grace
are all that I ask
in the way of prayer:
let no priest prattle
his litanies there.
[ 176] '" "l"'lraiL       '""    ''m^-   ■—_ rt>^ " ' "    S
Up on a hill-top
where chiefs have their tombs,
up on a hill-top
put me to rest.
Lay on my body
haphazard blooms.
Mark the spot simply,
that none may molest.
Let no one wonder
about my soul:
I want to be worthy
of my burial knoll.
R. G.
The gods are sleeping—pale fields stretch in silence
Down to dim pines that press their mystic boughs
Branch upon Branch, and shade on formless shade.
Far off lies a sea, intangible,
A strangeness, grey, motionless and still,
Lost in its own grey shores.
Mists hang in clouds before the mountain height,
Veiling huge shapes, half felt, and all unseen,
Divinely changeless, and forever mute—
The Gods have slept here long.
Slowly the dark mists redden, slowly roll
Adown the whited slopes; the pines murmur their matins,
The sea voices its incomprehensible longings;
And the Gods, unveiled, recline on their mountain throne,
Sleeping still.

The currency of words is little worth
In the ever-changing market of the mind.
How can we word the feelings which now bind,
Now loose our starry souls from this dull earth?
How with a sonnet could our wondrous Will
Unlock a heart he scarcely understood?
How shall a poet write, in transient mood,
Those glories whose expression passes skill?
How in poor letters can one prison Light
Of glorious yesterdays, tomorrow dead?
The greatest moments of our life they pass
Without true words to keep their memory bright;
And lo, the gray will soon replace the red
And friendships fade unsung, like last year's grass.
On Listening to a Tchaikowsky Symphony
The soft sibilant whispers of sweet strings
Rise from a pearly mist of shimmering tone
And change into the pulsing tragic moan
Of wind in forest caverns.    Then it rings
Into a hymn of joy, and fiercely sings
Of fearless majesty in massive chords
Which thunder cannonades, flash flaming swords,
Gladden the sad, and hearten cringing things.
My heart dulled by the pain of sightless time
Is lifted by the potency of sound
To heav'n, Where aching sadnesses are drowned
In moving depths of music vast, sublime:
And my whole world is filled with awful light
Charging my puny weakened soul with might.
