Literary Supplement FOREWORD
HPHE Editors wish to thank those
whose co-operation has aided in the
publication of this issue of the "Totem".
It is to be hoped that this rather inadequate attempt to record some of
the more important phases of student
activity may prove of service both as
a reminder to our Graduating Classes
and as a guide to those returning next

JOHN W. FOX  A Word to the Graduating Class
TN the month of May we shall witness the ceremony for the conferring
■"■ of degrees upon the Class of 1931. This formal acknowledgment by
the University authorities that the prescribed course of studies has been
completed, does not imply the severance of relations between the members of this Class and their Alma Mater; rather does it signify that those
upon whom the degrees have been conferred have been admitted into a
fraternity which embraces in its membership all University men and
women everywhere.
Fortunately, this larger fellowship need not result in a loss of interest
in the University of British Columbia. I therefore express the hope that
you will continue to hold in affectionate regard the associations of your

(Continued from Page Eleven)
undergraduate days, and that whenever occasion offers you will give
effective expression to this sentiment by taking an active interest in the
University and in its work.
Ideally, there is no essential difference between an undergraduate
and a graduate, at least so far as the attitude towards learning is concerned. The one receives training under a measure of direction; the
other is still, let us hope, a student who continues to develop independently. The conferring of the degree merely marks a milestone along
the way.
The mental discipline and the mental enlargement which you have
gained during your undergraduate years will be of great assistance to
you in your business, professional or public life. I congratulate you on
the opportunities which are yours, and in expressing the hope that you
will direct your knowledge and ability to their highest purpose, that of
human welfare, I feel that I am expressing the sentiments which will be
yours when Chancellor R. E. McKechnie admits you into the world-wide
fellowship of University graduates.
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. The Class History of Arts '31
THE dominated note in
class history of Arts
'31 from its be-placarded
Freshman year till its be-
gowned and behooded Senior year has been one of
originality and pep.
In '27, the Class blossomed forth in class colors
of a hue never before
equalled and long to be
remembered and class
spirit was in abundance at
numerous pep meetings.
Towards the end of its
Sophomore year, Arts '31
set a precedent by actually
deciding upon a "Valedictory" gift. Originality was
also shown in the choice of
a useful gift—a collection
of B. C. historical documents and other material
and relics. Since that year
the Class has been working steadily on the gift
with a result that there is
deposited in the Library a valuable and extensive collection. The work of
Robie L. Reid, Stanley W. Mathews, Dr. W. N. Sage and Eric North, as
president of the committee, is deeply appreciated by every member of the
In its Senior year the Class's original and startling contribution was the
Class Party in the form of a barn dance, the popularity of which was such
that many an Aggie tried to crash the gate.
Arts '31 has been amply represented in every field of college endeavour.
Throughout the four years its members have graced these hallowed halls of
learning with their presence.
Arts '31 started their athletic career by winning the Frosh Varsity
meet. As Sophomores, the Class with Norm Terry and Jack Chappell won
the Cross Country race and attained second place in the Arts '20 Relay. In
our Junior year, thanks largely to George Grant and an enthusiastic group
of supporters, we won the Interclass Soccer Championship. Ernie Roberts,
President of the Soccer Club, is the mainstay of the defense of the Senior

Margaret came here after a brilliant canter
through South Vancouver High, and she has maintained the same high standard throughout University. She is a Math. Honour student and for two
years has been the secretary of the Mathematics
Club. Margaret's studies by no means absorb all
her time, for she is able to take an active interest
in tennis and swimming, and is also a proficient
pianist.    Favourite saying: "Have you seen Joan?"
Nels hails from Victoria where he established an
enviable record as a student. While in that seat of
learning, he won the David Spencer Mathematics
prize, and among other things played the lead in
"Green Stockings" and was president of the L.S.E.
At Varsity he is known for his proclivities as a
punster and his cachinnations which probably incited
Max Beerbohm to his essay on "Laughter." A Mathematics Honour student, he is president of the Mathematics Club and the Musical Society. Next year
along with his Master's work he will square the
circle, duplicate the cube, and trisect the angle.
During her college career, Philosophy and Economics have claimed a large portion of her attention.
Despite these weighty matters, Alice has found time
to make herself indispensible to her many friends,
and to take part in various activities such as the Badminton Club, Philosophy Discussion Club, and the
Golf Club. Vice-president of the latter, she has
served on the Women's Athletic Executive in her
fourth year. Although somewhat undecided as to
her future, Alice holds architectural aspirations.
Ed is a man of Utopian ideals despite his unaccountable attachment to chick embryos and T.B.
germs, Although majoring in Zoology and Bacteriology, in which he holds his own with annoying ease,
the chief object of his sojourn at Varsity has been to
attain a liberal education. This accounts for his
liberal outlook and attendance, even somewhat sporadic, at the Art Club and the International Relations
Club meetings. After graduation, Ed contemplates
an intensive study of medical science elsewhere.
Betty, as she is known by her friends, comes to
U.B.C. each year from Courtenay. English and
Philosophy interest her chiefly, although she indulges
in History just to show that life is quite serious.
Betty wastes precious moments attempting to avoid
tea in the caf., but apart from this, she is quite
human. Next year Betty plans to return for Education.
Mary by name and merry by nature. Famed for
her curly hair, jolly laugh and pep at parties. Besides French, her weaknesses are English and basketball games. She enjoys a good time and may always
be found wherever fun is. But in spite of this,
Mary always makes good grades. Her jolly nature
is sure to carry her far on the road to success in
her chosen profession of teaching. Best of luck,
Although "Ran" was born in Ontario, he received all of his education in this province. Coming
from South Burnaby High, where he won the Governor General's medal in 1926, he completed his
Freshman year at this University. After a year's
absence he returned for his second and subsequent
years. In his Sophomore year he took part in the
activities of the Rowing Club, and during the following year held the office of president of the Radio
Club, at the same time honouring in Maths.
"How goes it?" and an ever-cheerful smile adequately describes Helen. Her sincere geniality and
never-lacking interest in everything pertaining to
Varsity have won her many friends. Of numerous
clubs she is a real member, an ardent supporter of
all debates and a great enthusiast of tennis. Not
only in those of her class but in all the functions of
Varsity life she takes a well-balanced interest, giving
the best she has and gaining the best they offer.
Ed., formerly a member of Arts '26, left that
illustrious body at the end of his Sophomore year in
order to guide benighted youngsters up the golden
stairs of knowledge. He joined the ranks of '31
last year but has not been very definitely heard from
yet. He is an enigma, a member of Math, and
Physics classes, with a penchant for peculiar mixtures
like classical literature, photography and fishing.
McGill will be lucky next year in the acquisition
of one of the nicest girls in our Senior class. Alice
was a popular student in Victoria College and now
at U.B.C. continues to win the good wishes of her
many friends. At present she is making a special
study of English, Latin, and Philosophy, with a view
to taking up Library work. During the afternoons
and evenings she is to be seen guarding the reserved
books in the Library.

After spending her first two years at Victoria
College where she won a scholarship in French—
L'Alliance Francaise — Ella come to Vancouver in
search of higher learning, which she found by taking
an Honours Course in Latin. Consequently, she is
an enthusiastic member of the Classics Club and has
given several interesting papers at its meetings. Ella
intends to return to Varsity next year for Education.
Herman came to B.C. in 1927 with McGill
matriculation. In his Freshman year, he was manager of the Junior Soccer team; in his second, he was
treasurer of La Canadienne; in his third, its president,
in his fourth, vice-president of the German Club.
In his spare time he plays chess, and is also an ardent
Grass Hockey player. In his Varsity career he
specializes in modern languages.
Edith's versatility is shown by her many and
varied courses. Second year found her in the Botany
lab., while in third year her favourite subject was
French. However, German, English and Philosophy,
have claimed her attention as a senior. Even this
heavy course weighs lightly on her shoulders, for
Edith spends the odd hour at afternoon teas and
bridges. Next year Normal will be graced by the
presence of this budding teacher.
A young man of many and varied abilities is
our Peter, for, this Chemistry Honour Student and
budding bacteriologist speaks German with remarkable fluency and has been heard to hold forth in
French. Of course, he is a member of L'Alliance
Francaise and of the Chemistry Society (where he
displays a Borgia-like enthusiasm for poisons.) He
hopes to do post-grad work at an eastern University,
and we are sure that this peppy youth who reduces
his friends to a state of eulogizing him in verse, will
continue to be both popular and successful.
So much of Verna's time is occupied in writing
History essays, that it might be concluded it is her
favourite form of punishment. In her last year she
served on the class executive, and, as a member of
the Valedictory Committee, contributed much time
and effort to the undertaking, positively gloating over
the collection. Verna's position behind the loan desk
leads us to believe she will be taking a Library course,
if she can overcome the temptation to return for

And this, boys and girls, is our Clare,
A maiden with blue eyes and very fair.
Took work at Queen's then arrived to us;
And was very welcome to '31 class.
She's fond of Philosophy and not in vain:
Has taught school already, will teach again.
Skating, she claims, is her favourite sport.
So there—don't you think Clare's a good sort?
A native of Flora, Illinois, where he obtained his
early education, Bris, for a time, lived in Los Angeles.
California provided him with a most delightful wife,
and after remaining out of school for several years
he came to us in '27. The purpose of his university
career has been to prepare himself for the study of
Law; consequently he confines most of his attention
to Economics, with English as his hobby. Bris will
be remembered for his soundness of judgment and
his great sincerity of purpose.
A capable vice-president of the Historical Society, past president of the International Relations
Club, and a member of the Musical Society, Helen
has taken an active interest in student affairs. She
is usually found in the stacks working with dusty
history books, for her chief interest is her History
Honour course. Judging from her brilliant work in
this line, we predict that some day other students
will be using her texts as works of reference.
"All-round" is the only phrase properly to describe Ralph's college career. As a freshman he played
on the first Canadian and Freshman Rugby teams.
In his Sophomore year, Ralph continued to play English rugby, and was Advertising Manager of the
"Ubyssey." As a junior, he was president of the
English Rugby Club and Business Manager of the
"Ubyssey." This year he is a member of the super-
Varsity Rugby team, and has undertaken the management of the downtown Stadium Campaign. Good
seconds in Ec. and varied social activities complete
the circle.
Norma, alias "Happy," majors in Musical and
minors in English (to the extent of four courses!).
She spends her surplus time chasing down her loaned
notes, preparing banquet speeches, writing the odd
essay and looking for Maysie. As a member of the
Upper Common Room Discussion Club, "Happy"
mingles with "Intelligentsia" and gets away with it.
Her friends will tell of a generosity and interest as
boundless as her capacity for long walks.

Dorothy's interests have been very varied. For
the last three years she has been a member of the
Art Club. In second year she also belonged to the
Musical Society and Outdoors Club. Then last year
she joined the Biological Discussion Club and Chemistry Society. She is now secretary-treasurer of the
former Club and vice-president of the latter. Dorothys' specialties are Chemistry and Biology, and she
intends to take Education next year.
"My chief ambition is to write "the Great American Novel'—but don't put that in the 'Totem.' "
Edgar, Lord of the social whirl, has shown literary
talent, but as he is an ambitious student in Commerce, one may expect him to become either a Trade
Commissioner, or a man of letters—or both. As a
sophomore, he was a "Ubyssey" reporter, and became
assistant, associate, and finally a Senior Editor. In
addition, he was treasurer of the Arts '31 Valedictory
Committee and a member of the Social Science Club
—but all this signifies nothing until it is added that
he proved loyal in his friendships and true to his
Dot is one of the privileged few—a Chemistry
Honour student, and an enthusiastic member of the
.Chemistry Society. Just what does she find so
interesting in Chemistry lectures? Besides Chemistry
she takes an odd Math, course and intends to take
her M.A. next year. Dot plays on the Grass
Hockey team and was a member of the former select
Studio Club. Her chief relaxation is entertaining
at tea every afternoon in her lab.
Frank is a true Vancouver product and hails
from Grandview, where, as a scholar and "bantam"
rugby player, he showed the boys at Britannia High
just how he could "do his stuff." After two uneventful years on this campus "Frankie" stepped out
as an important member of the L'Alouette and the
Classics Club, and a regular on the champion '31
Inter-class. He is now striving for Latin Honours,
and expects to be teaching youngsters in a couple of
years.    Prefers blondes.
Freshette—member of Players' Club; part in
Christmas play; swimming. Sophomore—secretary of
Players' Club; vice-president of Swimming Club;
member of swimming team. Junior—president of
Players' Club; part in Spring play; vice-president of
L.S.E.; Senior—member of Big Block Club; Players'
Club; president of Women's Athletics; Council member. Despite her very active participation in campus
activities, Betty has not shirked her academic responsibilities, for she is ta be a chemist and bacteriologist and those science courses mean work.
Aubin came to us from Victoria College two
years ago. Since she has been here, she has entered
with much pep and enthusiasm into all phases of
university life. Aubin, majoring in Botany and
French, manages to carry off "firsts" with great ease.
In athletics she takes an active part, being vice-president of the Outdoors Club, as well as an enthusiastic
worker for the Hockey Club. She frequently hides
herself in one of her many labs. Not satisfied with
a B.A. at eighteen, Aubin plans to return next year
to take her M.A. in Taconomy.
For two years Alan, more commonly known as
Tommy, came to Varsity without letting many of
us know about it. His third year was spent ft
McGill as exchange scholar and this year everyone
knows him as president of the Men's Undergrad.
As councillor, he is respected for his legal mind; as
chairman of the Discipline Committee for his stern
demeanor; as member of the Stadium Committee for
his enthusiasm, and in social circles for his diplomacy
and dancing.
Jeanne has made her last year at U.B.C. an
active one. In the Fall she joined the "Ubyssey"
reportorial staff. This year she has shown enthusiasm for basketball and skating, while in previous
years she was known to gym fans. Jeanne is one of
the few walking enthusiasts at U.B.C. Languages
are her specialty and La Causerie her chosen club.
Trail, Education and Essays are her favourite topics
of conversation. All who know Jeanne appreciate
her  resourcefulness and  capacity for friendship.
Robbie's "Hiss" on the basketball floor has won
for him a place in the "Hall of Fame." In spite of
first-class marks, commercial art, being a Life Saver
at Jasper, the fun he gets out of dances and the
hundred and one other things he does—his idea of
enjoyment is a Canadian Championship in basketball.
Without a doubt the future holds quite a lot for
Montreal,  1935.
Dear Marion:
Do you remember Phyllis Campbell of our year?
She came from New Denver but lived in Vancouver
during the winter. She was a member of La Canadienne. I remember the hours she used to spend in
the Library worrying over Economics and Phil, essays.
I often think of our 2 o'clock cups of coffee in the
caf. followed by a dash to the Library to get places.
I read of her quite recently in connection with
Social Service work in Vancouver.

Despite the prospects of Normal next year and
a major in Philosophy, Velma has managed to preserve her unique sense of humour and characteristic
wit. In her four years of Varsity she could always
be depended on to provide pep and laughter to any
group that she might join, and though she lends
her presence to Faculty balls and basketball dances
with noticeable regularity, Velma pulls good grades
with surprising ease.    Favourite subject—Biology.
Don is Edinburgh born and bred, but U.B.C.
tried and proved. Since coming to Varsity in the
fall of '27, he has played soccer, been an active
member of the Musical Society and for two years'
sat on Students' Council. First as treasurer, and
this year as president of the Alma Mater Society,
he has dealt with lofty Governors, rebellious councillors and irate students, without fear or favour.
At all times he has discharged his duties conscientiously and well. He is a bit of an idealist, is Don,
though Scotsmanlike, he hates to admit it. It is
rumoured that Don plans to return to the old
One of two generally seen tearing frantically
from one end of the parking space to the other exclaiming to the world at large—"Know anyone that
knows anyone that's going in at three?" Among
numerous other activities Sallie somehow managed to
find time last year to write a play, "The Trees," and
took the leading part when it was produced at
Christmas. In her Sophomore year she broke the
broad jump record. It is still a deep, dark mystery
how she acquires high seconds and firsts in English
and Philosophy.
"Now listen!"
"Dick" joined us in our third year, coming
from Victoria College where he was president of
the A.M.S. A prominent member of the Players'
Club, he starred in "The Veil Lifts" as the Naval
Officer, and in "Friend Hannah" as the Duke of
York. Dick is this year president of the Letters
Club. He is majoring in English and intends to
return for Education. With his sterling character
and jovial disposition we predict every success for
his future.
Bee, president of Women's Undergrad. at Union
College, where she obtained a scholarship in Church
History last year, is a member of the Literary Forum.
In spite of every Thursday afternoon with Gym (or
is it Jim?), she makes first class marks—mostly in
History. Formerly a member of Arts '27, she helped
to erect the present U.B.C. buildings by manicuring
red-headed Freshies at Thirty-five cents a victim.
She aspires to Girls' Work, but—"you never can tell
with Bees!"

"Dolly" is one of the more ambitious members
of the Class of '31. Although majoring in History
and English, along with many others, she is showing
her individuality by refusing to take the Teacher's
Training Course. After graduating, Dolly intends
to return to California where she will enter the field
of Journalism. We sincerely hope that she will have
all the success possible in this venture.
Ian started out with the Class of '26, but was
beguiled into pedagogy. He survived, however, and
returned for this last year. The "Pirates of Penzance" was his major sport in which he took the
role of the "Pirate King."
During Norleen's school life, England, St. Michael's School at Vernon, and Victoria College, have
figured in her education. After such a varied and
wandering career, she has remained at Varsity long
enough to complete her final two years. Judging by
Norleen's high scholastic standing we are sure she
will be very successful in her chosen work. Although
her outward reserve makes it difficult for us to
know what she is really like, all her friends agree
that she is well worth knowing.
"He plays the thing."
Drama and Literature have taken the leading
roles in Alf's university career. He has sixty-five
public performances to his credit, and has also been
very active in Little Theatre circles. He was advertising manager of the Players' Club in third year and
was appointed assistant director of the Christmas
Play this year. Elected to Letters Club in Sophomore
year. Member of Rowing and Fencing Clubs. As
actor, playwright and director, Alf has a brilliant
future in the theatre.
Were you looking for Margaret? She's likely in
the common room, looking vaguely around for inspiration for a short story—Not there? Well, perhaps she's in the Pub. office—she's Associate Editor
of the "Ubyssey," you know. She's president of
L'Alouette too, and a member of Der Deutsche
Verein and the Gym Club—Well, I guess she must
be at a lecture—She's planning to be a librarian,
you know, so she takes a little bit of everything—
German, History, Sociology, English—Oh, here comes
Marion, she'll know where Margaret is!

Loraine's hobbies are History and back-scratchers. She is noted on the campus for her brilliant
lipstick and for the hours she spends in the caf.—
just another of these students who make good grades
with very little effort. She started Varsity with
Arts '30 but later joined '31. As to her future
career—we know very little about it, even she is a
bit vague. Perhaps we shall see her in Education,
perhaps in Toronto.
To this date we have never seen a frown on the
brow of this blase Senior. Four years of lackadaisical
existence see him graduating with a consistent record
of good marks. Constant loyalty to the English
Rugby Club, combined with his good nature, have
gained him a host of friends, but this last term the
college girls seem to take more and more of his
interest. Next year John will go to Harvard, to
prepare to be one of Vancouver's promising young
Muriel's college days began in the "shacks" at
Fairview. After "school-marming" for a few years
she returned to her Alma Mater in her Junior Year.
Being interested in things scientific she spends most
of her time in labs, peering through microscopes,
and is a member of the Biological Discussion Club.
But Science is not Muriel's only interest. Her ambition is to win a sweepstake and, on the proceeds,
satisfy the cravings of a globe-trotter.
After enduring his Freshman and Sophomore
days at Victoria College, Johnny discontinued his
scholastic career for three years. The Victoria life,
however, failed to handicap him, for he resumed his
studies at U.B.C. with a bang. Prominent in his
Junior year in basketball and swimming, John became president of the Swimming Club this year.
His first two years at Victoria and his last two at
U.B.C. have undoubtedly shown his ability as an
organizer and participant.
Kathleen came to us as a junior from Victoria
College where she efficiently filled the position of
secretary of the Students' Council. Since taking up
Latin and Mathematics as her major subjects she may
be found in an odd corner five minutes before the
lecture translating the twenty lines of "Virgil" she
expects to be asked. She is a prominent member
of the Classics Club and in her Senior year was
elected vice-president of it. Her favourite expression is, "Let's have tea."
Barbara seems inclined to take a serious view of
life. We wonder if this is the only explanation of
her tendency to make first classes. After attending
high school for two years in Saskatchewan, she
matriculated in Vancouver in 1927, winning a
scholarship. She has been occupied lately with English, trench and German courses, and is a member
of La Causerie and the Deutsche Verein. She hopes
next year to take a course in Library science.
John, of the friendly smile and the businesslike air, is one of our most popular students. During his first two years at Varsity he played Canadian
rugby, winning his small block. In third year he
made his debut into the business world as Advertising Manager for the "Ubyssey," and in his last
advanced to the Business Managership, holding that
office with great success. John is an ardent follower
of G. K. Chesterton, believing that "Woman's place
is in the home."
Viola is another brilliant student from Victoria.
Since coming to Varsity in the third year she has
established an enviable record in History honours.
"Ve-Ve" is a popular member of the select social
circle which congregates about the history stacks.
The Historical Society and International Relations
Club have claimed her knowledge of current affairs,
while the S.C.M. carries her in lighter moments to
Copper Cove Camp. Viola plans to migrate again
from the City of Birds for Education '32.
Jack's career at Varsity has been divided equally
between scholastic, athletic and social interests. In
his Freshman year he held a position on the Frosh
English Rugby team. From that time on he has
appeared spasmodically on the field, a broken leg in
his Sophomore year somewhat cooling his ardour.
After a not-too-rapid beginning J. W. has managed
to obtain rather decent marks and should have no
trouble in graduating well. Next year we may see
him back as a Pre-Med.
Margaret embarked upon her combined Arts
and Social Service course with the class of '29.
None of us need to be told that her chief interests
are deserted wives and youthful delinquents. Besides her extensive fieldwork she has found time to
attend handicraft classes and to captain a Point Grey
Guide company. All who know her conscientious
nature and her unruffled efficiency are confident that
she will be successful in her chosen field of family
welfare work.

We were joined in our third year by this trim
little miss from New Westminster. She quickly
showed herself to be a brilliant student whom English Honours was, proud to claim. Ability to make
marvellous marks in the most abstruse subjects would
be sufficient reason for anyone to be just a wee bit
conceited—but not Sheila. Clearness in thinking,
steadiness in acting and a saving sense of humour
place her far on the path towards success.
James Gibson has held offices in the Players'
Club, the Historical Society, the International Relations Club and the Men's Gymnasium Club. Last
year he was a member of the "Friend Hannah" cast
and this year he took part in a debate with a team
representing the National Federations of Students in
England and Scotland. He has also contributed much
to the success of the Valedictory Gift Committee of
Arts '31 in its work on the B. C. Historical Collection. He goes to join our Rhodes men, Ross Tolmie
and James Sinclair, at Oxford, with the sincere good
wishes of his classmates.
In the first two years Joan showed that she was
proficient in all subjects, but finally became a Maths.
Honour student and has since been an interested
member of the Mathematics Club. During her third
year at Varsity, Joan played guard on the Senior
"B" Basketball team but, owing to lack of time, was
forced to drop the game this year. Unless she
changes her plans, she will be back for Education
next year.
"Well boys, what's the score . . . ?"
Ernie completed his first two years in Arts '30
and, after a year spent in mining gold at Premier,
returned to the Class of '31. Forsaking boxing and
rowing, Ernie joined the Players' Club, playing successfully in "The World Beyond" and "Fog." He
also maintained his musical reputation, gained by
summer work on the C.N. boats, by his appearances
with the British Columbians and the Musical Society.
Last year Ernie majored in Philosophy, and this year
is continuing with a Pre-Medical course.
Florence had better luck than most in being
able to spend some months in England during her
high school training, which she received in Trail.
She left that city in 1927 for Vancouver, to begin
her Varsity career. She has successfully carried an
eighteen-unit course in two different years, and is
particularly interested in History and English, even
those awesome courses listed under English, Division
III. She is undecided what she will choose next year:
Education, or Library Science.
Eleanor arrived at U. B. C. in her third year
from Victoria College. She took up badminton and
this year has been a very necessary member of the
second team. Eleanor delved in the realms of Philosophy and decided to major in this abstruse subject.
The vocational problems of other people are likely to
be her future worry. Eleanor has as her goal, during
the next few years, an M.A. at Toronto and even
further education at Cambridge.
Ted, as he is known to his classmates, took
Senior Matric at Kamloops before joining the ranks
of Arts '31. Specializing in Chemistry and Maths.,
he is an active member of the Chemistry Society and
is well acquainted with matters mathematical, equations so simple and also quadratical. Ted is keenly
interested in winter sports such as skiing and skating, and is a soccer fan as well as being a tennis
player of some note.
Throughout her varied university career, Ann
has been one of the most prominent and valued
members of the Players' Club. Combining a genuine dramatic sensibility with rare humour, she has
ever delighted her audiences. Ann's versatility enables her to carry success into her studies, and we
see her name on the scholarship list where she won
a Khaki Scholarship in her Junior year. Ann is a
great favourite and we hope she will "carry on"
after Varsity days as cheerily as she has done in the

Herbert is an entomologist and has an habitually bright outlook on life. He shares his comprehensive understanding of zoological problems with
everyone he meets and so has proved himself of invaluable assistance to all his classmates. During his
first two years at University he was intimately associated with the Musical Society. Although he is
now carrying the burden of a Zoology Honour
course, he still finds time to assist the Biological
Discussion Club in  the capacity of curator.
"Ask why God made the gem so small?
And why so huge the granite?
Because God meant -mankind should set
That higher value on it."
Nancy  distinguished  herself at Victoria College
by high marks and  the championship of the Pacific
Coast for Professional Highland  Dancing.    At Varsity  she  has  divided   her  time  between  English   and
French,    Gym.    Club,    hockey    and    track.      After
Education,   instead   of   teaching   B. C.   mountaineers
tap dancing, rumour says she will be displaying her
talents in London.

Ruth—known to her friends as "Rufus"—came
to Varsity two years ago from Victoria College. She
distinguished herself as a basket-ball player there,
was a profficient scholar and, as Bi. Lab. assistant,
showed a marked liking for things scientific. Here
at U.B.C. she is doing excellent work in Botany
Honours, and is vice-president of the Biological Discussion Club. Her lighter moments are spent with
the Outdoors Club. Possibly Rufus will be with
Varsity again in Education '32. We hope so.
Began with Arts '29, but accepted a principal-
ship at the Tsolum Consolidated Superior School.
Returned with '3 1 to continue his weakness for English and Latin. Roth plays a "mean sax" and is a
member of the Musical Society. He belongs to the
Classics Club and was a dancing girl in the Thoth
ballet. To most of us he is better known for his
poetical effusions on the Muck Page. Roth has lots
of talent and ambition.
One of the important reasons why young men
come West to college. Looks as though being a
charming mannequin in the University fashion parade was her heaviest duty—you'd never guess that
she is amazingly competent in the Chem. lab., and
gets "firsts" in such bewildering subjects as Agronomy 20. Was Literary Representative for Arts '31
in her Freshman year, belongs to the Skating Club,
and goes round in approximately "par" with the
University Golf Club.
George joined the Class of '31 in 1927, coming
from Burnaby South High School. He has distinguished himself as a sprinter and broad jumper
in connection with the Track Club. As a soccer
player George has also shown his worth; he plays
full-back on the Junior team and is skipper of the
champion Arts '3 1 Soccer team. George has centered
his studies in French and English, which he intends
to teach the rising generation.
In the first year Nan distinguished herself at
badminton while representing the University at the
Victoria Invasion. During the succeeding years she
turned her attention toward academic pursuits where
she is known to her friends as the "budding economist." But she has been relieved from these financial
worries by the odd English and Pholosophy courses.
Yet she continually reverts to type by plaguing all
with the expression, "I must do those 'aggie ec'
questions. She intends to enter the business world
after graduation.

Joan came to U.B.C. in her Sophomore year
after taking Senior Matric. in Kelowna. Her course
is Math. Honours and she shows her interest in that
subject by never missing a Mathematics Club meeting. Joan spends some of her spare time playing
badminton and tennis and is an enthusiastic member
of the Swimming Club. Although she is returning
next year for Education, her ambition is to take up
post-graduate work in Physical Culture. Favourite
saying—"Have  you  seen  Margaret?"
Ronald, who came to U.B.C. in his Sophomore
year from Ridley College and Welland High School,
Ontario, has led a Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde existence during his university career. On one side he
invokes the Muse of poetry and has done some notable
work, especially in winning the Letters Club award
for an original contribution. On the other hand,
as Editor-in-Chief of the Publications Board, he has
steered a tortuous course between the difficulties
offered by a recalcitrant Students' Council, a sometimes fractious staff and an exacting student body.
Ronald intends to enter the teaching profession.
What a versatile young lady she is. She revels
in English and even holds forth in German. Her
true passion is History and her essays, which reveal
Jean's charming whimsicality and sparkling sarcasm,
are the envy of every student. With her sense of
humour and ready interest she combines the qualities
of a brilliant conversationalist and a sympathetic
listener. Friendship with Jean is a stimulating thing
for she is far more temperamental than a black-
haired, blue-eyed person has any right to be.
Spent his Freshman year at the "U" of Saskatchewan, but attracted by the "scenic" wonders of
U.B.C, decided to complete his course here. He
has dipped into swimming activities and nosed
around boxing circles—not to mention milder athletics with the Letters Club. Laury has the happy
faculty of accomplishing a lot with little apparent
effort. Comic novels and supposed misogynistic
tendencies constitute his chief weaknesses. Lawrence
visions a course in medicine after a few years of
Frances, during her career at Varsity, has succeeded in making that unusual combination—successful participation in the three important phases of
University life: sport, social activities, and studies.
Frances can wield a tennis racket with the best; she
is invariably among "those present;" and on top of
this she manages to obtain high marks. She is
majoring in History and English. Frances is going
into business after graduation, and we feel that her
personality and capability for hard work will carry
her to success.

Verna hails from Nanaimo and that town may
well be proud of her record both in scholarship and
athletics. She is majoring in Mathematics and
Physics, and is a member of the Philosophy Club,
the Golf Club, where it is rumoured she plays
before breakfast, and the Outdoors Club, in which
she is an ambitious hiker. Verna intends to take
education and if brains and unbounded energy mean
anything, she should be a great success.
Bert is this year capping his Varsity career by
graduating as president of the combined Senior
classes. Through his four years he has been closely
allied with English rugby, this year making the McKechnie Cup team. In second year Bert collected
class fees as treasurer of '31, and in third year,
tickets as a bus-driver. His chief bid to fame is
having had a record number of jobs. Seen at most
social functions, and obtains very decent marks with
a very indecent amount of work.
Katherine, known as Katie to her class-mates, U
one of the quieter members of Arts '31. Devoting
a great deal of her time to English and History,
she can often be found in the library reading for
her numerous essays. We have heard it hinted that
Katie intends to take a post-graduate course in
Library work next year. We all wish her every
success in her chosen profession.
After spending two years at Victoria College,
Frank ventured forth to Varsity, where he soon took
an active part in campus affairs, as is shown by his
presidency of the Law Club and his boxing attainments. We are confident that his ability to concentrate on one thing at a time will stand him in
good stead for his future profession of law. Frank,
characteristically garbed in sturdy tweeds, consuming innumerable cigarettes, and looking decidedly
stern, is familiar to everyone.
A hard worker, and an ardent student, Maysie
still finds time to be secretary of the Musical Society and to rehearse three nights a week for the
spring production. She even consents occasionally
to a cup o' tea of an afternoon, or a walk to the
gates of an evening. These activities, however, do
not debar her from knowing everything (judging
by the extent of her class-notes) about Maths.,
Physics and English 13, which leads us to the firm
belief that she will prove a remarkably able teacher.

Honours in French and membership in La
Causerie and L'Alliance Francaise occupy most of
Alice's time; nevertheless she is interested in History
and English. She does not, however devote all her
time to studies; she is always ready for any amusement and supports all student activities. Though
a conscientious worker, Alice is never too busy to
help others. Next year she intends to take Education.
Behold Reg! For two years Reg stealthily
manouvred in and out among us, fearing lest we find
him out. "Let it not be known," says he, "that I
was ever the treasurer of Victoria College Council."
And when the Class of *31 becomes a memory this
whisper may be heard in strange academic halls,
"Let it not be known that I was ever chairman of
Union College House Committee." Reg has left us
an enviable record as an Honour student in plant
pathology. By a process of quiet persistency he intends to become a prof.
Annie began her Varsity life at Fairview. After
two years there, she taught school for a time, and
then returned to U.B.C, joining Arts '31 in her
Junior year. In spite of this break in her studies
she is courageously tackling an Honour course in
French with a little Latin as a side-line. She intends to teach again after graduation. Here's wishing her the best of luck.
Frank took his first year with Arts '26 and has
since then been teaching, gaining his last three years
at Summer Session. History and Philosophy claim
first place in his academic interests, while he has devoted sufficient time to basketball and tennis to
gather a few trophies. He also finds time to devote
to vocal work, having been a member of the Welsh
and Chown United choirs. As treasurer of the Summer Session Students Association he keeps a fatherly
eye on the finances of that organization.
After a splendid record at Victoria College,
Edith joined us for her last two years. She is a
very deceiving person; let us whisper it softly—
she is not really the decorous young lady she seems.
But we won't reveal any more of her lurid past.
Fnough, that she looks very solemn when seen typing
diligently behind the Library desk. Next year Edith
intends to take a Library course at the University
of Washington.    We wish her the best of luck.

Marjorie entered the University after matriculating from the Prince of Wales High School.
"Midgie," as she is better known, finds time to be
present at all the social functions despite the fact
that she is always very busy with studies and library
work, and is interested in sports. "Midgie" won her
Big Block for swimming, in her first year. She is
majoring in English and History and intends to continue along this line next year at Washington.
Born in Vancouver, Barrie successfully worked
his way through Burnaby South High School, whence
he graduated to the U.B.C. in 1927 to join the ranks
of '31. From that time on Barrie has shown remarkable ability in French and Latin as well as in several
phases of sport, of which skating and badminton
head the list. After graduation, Barrie intends to
take Education with the object in view of training
the   rising  generation   in   his   own   favourite   studies.
During Eileen's four years at University she has
been a very active member of the Players' Club. In
her first year she appeared in the Christmas Plays
and again in the Spring Play, "Polly with a Past."
In her third year she was secretary and in her fourth
year vice-president of the Club. When Eileen is not
dashing from one antique shop to another, looking
for "props" for the Spring Play, she finds time to
attend  an occasional lecture.
Lloyd evidently believes that variety is the
essence of a good education. After his Freshman
year he joined the pre-medical students. Leaving
them, he took a business course in the city. Then
he entered Science for an Electrical Engineering
course. One year with the "Red-Shirts," however,
cured him and he returned to Arts to graduate in
Economics and Philosophy. Next year he hopes to
take his M.A., and then a course in Theology. "Take
it easy, Lloyd, take it easy."
Margaret took her first two years at Victoria
College, and came to us as a Junior. After braving
the elements every morning in "the Chariot" (which,
by the way, has an unlimited capacity), she hides
herself in the mysteries of the Bacteriology labs.
Margaret is a Grass Hockey enthusiast, and in her
Senior year was elected president of the Club. She
expects to continue in the field of Bacteriology.

Agnes ordinarily seems to be a quiet and conscientious worker, but on the tennis field the full
force of her personality is revealed. She played
Grass Hockey during her four years and is very
fond of her summer swims. She has delved into a
good many courses, running all the way from English, Philosophy and History to Geology, but English now claims most of her time. Her friends find
her kind and unassuming and full of humour. Her
ambition for the future is an Art course.
Malcolm is one of the most brilliant lights of
the graduating class. A Physics Honour student, he
is president of the Physics Club, and an abiding disciple of Einstein, Maxwell, and Weierstrauss. His
nursery literature most surely included a treatise on
Relativity and his toys probably consisted of galvanometers and wattmeters. His pet hobby is exposing projected theories re things physical, and withal
his genial personality has made him a host of friends
at the University. Malcolm is a credit to the Institution.
Coming to Varsity a scholarship-winner, Mary
has maintained her brilliant record throughout. She
won a second scholarship and always gains first class
averages. As president of La Canadienne, she has
put her French honours to excellent practice. In
addition she is a member of the International Relations Club and an active member of the S.C.M.
U.B.C. will not lose Mary this spring, for she plans
to return in the fall to study Education.
Gibb is a double-course man, having taken his
second year Arts at Summer School. Next year he
graduates in Electrical Engineering and the East will
probably claim him for a while at least. Of unfailing good nature, he has won many friends at
U.B.C, and we all feel that, as an engineer, his
success is assured. As a diversion from the more
serious business of studying, Gibb plays badminton,
and in the summer tramps the wilds with the
Geological  Survey.
Frailey comes to us from North Vancouver.
She entered Varsity in the second year and since
then her chief occupation has been in winning
French Honours. An active member of "La Canadienne," Frailey was the heroine in the play produced by that Club. Furthermore, she has been
working on the Valedictory Gift Committee for Arts
'31 and has given the group much assistance. Frailey
intends to teach, so we hope to see her back at
Education  in the fall.

Popular and peppy—that's Mavis. Entering the
University as a Governor General's medallist, Mavis
has now acquired three major scholarships and is a
brilliant student in English Honours. Connected
last year with the executive of Arts '31, she became secretary of the Senior Executive Committes
this year. She is also an efficient secretary of the
Letters Club—but Mavis is not one-sided; she has
many interests, among them, tennis. A well-rounded
life, a vivid personality and a keen mind make her
future success assured.
Alex spends his winters absorbing Economics
and his summers recuperating his vocabulary on an
ice-truck. He may most frequently be found juggling figures in the Stat. lab. or commenting upon
the pretty green signs in the Library. He is a
cooperative worker of the highest order. Despite
these grinding occupations, Alex is an ardent and successful student in his chosen field. He is undecided
whether to return for a B. Com. or to plunge directly into business.
Born in China, Katharine came to Vancouver
by way of Europe in 192 5. Her chief interest at
Varsity besides History and English is the Student
Christian Movement, of which she is president. She
belongs to the Literary Forum, and is an active member of the International Relations Club, where she
is an authority on China. This year Katharine was
a delegate to Reed College and to the S. C. M. Conference at Jasper.    She intends to take Education.
Ev. brought something of the swing of the
rugged western plainsman with him when, after three
years of teaching in Alberta, he came to Victoria
College as a sophomore. At U. B. C. he became a
staunch supporter of the Law Club—once he graced
the Judge's Bench—the Men's Gym Club and the
Musical Society. His handiwork was revealed to advantage in many of the decorative innovations of the
Senior Barn Dance. Solid determination, backed by
becoming modesty, augur well for his success.
Jean is one of the few people who seem to go
through Varsity with little work or worry. Her
interests range from History, English and Latin to
Biology. At certain times of the year she can be
found in the Library hunting books for her numerous essays. During the third and fourth years Jean
has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Arts '31
Valedictory Gift project, and she acts as the secretary of the Committee. Next year she intends to
return for Education.
Neither too quiet nor too studious, Cicely is a
valued member of our class. She has that endearing quality of being willing to do anything in the
world for you, whether you want a play criticized,
an essay written, or an original excuse for doing
neither. Cicely is majoring in English and Philosophy
in hopes that she will some day realize her ambition
of taking a Library course at McGill. She is an
enthusiastic member of the Philosophy Club, and
attends an occasional meeting of Der Deutsche Verein.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is U.B.C.'s other
prize Scotchman—yes! we have two in the Auditorium. The wee fellow is kept above and Geordie
because of his radicalism and other native qualifications, spends his time below. Besides good books he
keeps good smokes. Like the rest of the Morgans,
he is famous. As an economist of the first rank, an
exponent of the views of Marx and Hegel, he bears
an enviable reputation as a defender of his beliefs.
He has seen many classes come and go, and we are
honoured to have him graduate with us.
Maud will graduate not only with her B. A.
degree and Honours in Economics, but also with her
Social Service Diploma—evidence of her keen ambition, her true scholastic spirit, and, above all, her
ability to apply her knowledge in a practical manner.
Besides gaining a P.E.O. scholarship, Maud has been
a member of the I.R.C. and Social Science Club, the
Musical Society, and the S.C.M. executive. By her
ready sympathy and cheery friendliness she has won
many loyal and true friends. Her "Lott" is sure
to be a happy one!
Van, as he is known to all, is an ardent student
in Physics and Maths. However, he excels in Canadian rugby, where for three years he has been packing the pigskin in the Intermediate Canadian Rugby
League. He supplements his dinner hours by playing in the inter-class basketball and soccer games.
Van will take Education next year, if only to show
his famous pipe to High School students.
During her university life Bessie has endeared
herself to us all by her genial sympathetic nature,
her love of fun and her keen sense of humour. Judging from her indulgence in Economic essays we are
led to believe that she will enter the- business world
after graduation if she can overcome the temptation
for Social Service.

To all and sundry, Betty. Throughout her
university career Betty has chased those subjects
necessary for Home Economics. She revels in
Bacteriology and Zoology and one may find her at
any hour of the day in the "lab," inoculating
bunnies and butchering cats. After graduation,
Betty plans to complete her Home Economics course
at the University of Washington.
Eric, better known to his friends as "Tony,"
entered Arts '31 as a sophomore, having taken his
Senior Matriculation at Port Haney. He belongs to
the Mathematics Club, and in the second and third
years was a member of the Badminton Club, which
he deserted this year in order to devote his time
more exclusively to obtaining Honours in his chosen
subject, Physics. Next year we shall welcome Tony
back as an Education student.
Viola is one of those steady and industrious students, but this in no way detracts from her interest in
the lighter things of life. At some future date she
intends to take a post-graduate course in Library
work and, with this end in view, she spends Thursday
afternoons behind the loan desk. Viola is always a
loyal and cheerful friend and we are sure that, if she
continues in her present ambitions, she will be assured
of future success.
"Larry" is the customary and more accredited
termination. His perpetually happy disposition arises
from a faculty of obtaining real and intense enjoyment from little things, while at the same time not
allowing trifling annoyances to destroy his equanimity. Larry is to be found in the Caf. any afternoon
imbibing tea, discussing philosophy in the dialectical
manner, and smoking the inevitable pipe. His ability
to work hard when he wants to, will carry him to
success in his chosen profession, education.
After two years at Victoria College, Betty went
to Normal, and the following year joined the Class
of '31 at U.B.C. A member of the Musical Society
last year, she is also connected with the S. C. M.
and the Gym Club. Her chief courses are in English, French and History. Betty's name is usually
coupled with that of her so-called "sin-twister."
Her witty remarks have made her a general favourite,   and   will   help   her   along   the   road   of   teaching
Margaret is another student whose high standing is helping to maintain the reputation of Victoria
College. She is known as the other half of the
"sin-twistership." During her two years in Vancouver, Margaret's work has centred around English,
History and Philosophy, while her extra-curricular
activities have included the Musical Society and
S.C.M. It is by her sunny disposition and friendly
manner that Margaret will best be remembered by
her many friends, who wish her much success as
a teacher.
Ernie dropped into Varsity three years ago after
teaching in the North. Besides being the energetic
president of the Soccer Club for two years, he has
been one of the outstanding players on the Senior
team. Last year he brought about the presentation
of the "Soccer Cup" for inter-class competition. He
is a member of the C.O.T.C. and a leading shot on
the rifle team. Spends his summers in the mines or
on surveys.     Will probably follow teaching.
Marian came from Cranbrook in her Sophomore year to join the Class of *31. Throughout her
college career, her cheery personality has won for
her a host of friends and she believes "that a friend
in need is a friend indeed." Last year she joined
the Gym Club to keep herself fit to wrestle with
her two bugbears, Latin and English, which she intends to teach  in  the near future.
Murdie, after matriculating at Revelstoke, attended Normal School at Victoria before he came to
Varsity. During his four years with '31 he has been
chiefly interested in Philosophy, although he has also
specialized in Mathematics and English. He plays
inter-class basketball, skiis a little, and is very fond
of hiking. He has also a weakness for dancing and
bridge, and in the summer vacations enjoys the wide-
open spaces of interior construction camps and surveys.
Margaret's versatility and sincerity have distinguished her college career. Her scholastic standing has
been consistently high, notwithstanding her wide
range of outside activities, which include International and Class Debating, winning of the Women's
Oratorical contest, acting as secretary and vice-
president of Arts '31, and finally as secretary of the
Alma Mater Society. Margaret has been a member
of La Canadienne, I.R.C., and the Letters Club.
Interested throughout in the S.C.M., she has been its
publicity convener and vice-president and went as a
delegate to the 1929 Jasper Conference. A good
student and leader; a splendid co-worker and friend.

Margaret is one of those brilliant people for
whom first classes are a matter of course. She
matriculated from Lord Byng High School with a
scholarship and carried off another in her second
year at Varsity. Her main interests are French—in
which she is honouring—and German. But academic
work is only part of Margaret's career. She is vice-
president of La Canadienne, a member of the German
Club and plays a violin in the Musical Society.
Dave is one of the double-course men. His
home being in Victoria, he took two years at Victoria College, and at the end of his first year there
was awarded the Rotary Scholarship. Continuing
with Science '31, he was among the favoured ones
that finished the first two years; but, like many
others of the class, took a year off to "recuperate."
He is now found with the Chemical Engineers of
Science  '32,  "sweet  songsters  of  the Chem.   5   lab."
Freda first came to Varsity with Arts '27. After
attending for two years she left, joining Arts '31
last year. While taking a course of combined
Honours in German and History, Freda still finds
time to be secretary of the German Club and an
active member of the I.R.C. and the Historical
Society. During the two years she was absent from
Varsity, Freda attended Normal and later taught
school. We expect that she will continue in that

flowers. He brought some of the sun in his genial
personality, which has won for him the presidency
of the Classics Club. Many a friendless Freshman,

At  badminton,  tennis she is  a shark!
And in her exams she gets a high mark.
She is always and everywhere witty and bright,
We know it and say it—she is all-right.
After two years at Victoria College, Peggy decided last year to grace Varsity with her presence.
Since her arrival she has been heard frequently—
especially in the "PR" stacks or at occasional meetings of the Classics Club. Still undecided as to her
future, she employs the present in exercising a keen
sense of humour and an infectious laugh, and in
gaining affection and admiration as one of the most
cheerful and persevering members of the Class.
Entering U.B.C. with Arts '28, Chris aspires to
a double degree in Chemical Engineering. Three
years with the Rowing Club have proved his worth
as stroke for the first eight. In the past, the Musical
Society and the Studio Club also claimed his interests.
Confidence in his executive ability is reflected this
year in his appointment to treasurer of the Science
Undergrad.    Chris, will be with us again in '31-'32.
After a year at Normal, Molly joined Arts '31
and has since then directed her attention towards
Philosophy and English with the end in view of
teaching in high school. She has already taught in
Alberta during the summer. Molly has shown her
executive ability as vice-president of the Outdoors
Club in her Junior year and as president of the
Philosophy Discussion Club in her Senior year. Her
favourite pastimes are: hiking, skiing, losing her
gloves and leaving her beret in Ethics.
Carl comes from Britannia Beach. He is an
excellent tennis player, a good diver and has devoted
some time to gymnastics. He came to the University
intending to become a chemical engineer, but decided
that the Physics Honour course looked harder. He
has good ability in Physics and Chemistry and intends to follow up his courses with research work
after  graduation.
Clarie, otherwise known as Bluebell, has the
reputation of being studious and quiet. To those
who know her, she may be studious, but quiet?—
no, never. Besides a full Honour course in French,
Clarie has taken several courses in Latin. First
classes and a scholarship sum up her scholastic
career, while swimming and eating form her chief
pastime. Her favourite expressions are unique and
Claribel's own. For four years she has been living
in   hopes of  taking  Education.

She played Grass Hockey in her Freshman year,
Senior "B" Basketball for three years and has held
executive positions as Track representative last year,

Ronald came to the University without much
idea of the course he was going to take. He had a
leaning towards Engineering, but saw the error of
his ways in time, and instead, took an Honour

is going on to research work in Physics, so let's join
in wishing him good luck.
Berna came to the University from the interior
and throughout her four years here she has smiled
and laughed her way into many hearts. She is one
of our graduates who hopes to return next year to
study methods and means of imparting education to
public and high school pupils. As an associate member of Thoth, she religiously paints armour at Homecoming. She has three weaknesses—chocolate cake,
ice cream and Canadian rugby. Major, English;
interest, Economics.
One of the most brilliant of the Japanese students studying in the University. After graduating
from the Richmond High School, he entered the
U.B.C. in 1927 with the Class of Arts '31. Taking
honours in languages, with major in French and
minor in German, he has made consistently high
academic standings throughout the four years. Susie
is loved by all his friends for his frankness in conversation and his seriousness in study.
Jean joined the Class of '31 in the Senior year,
coming to us from Manitoba. Although she left
Russia only three years ago, she managed to graduate
at nineteen. Besides being a brilliant student, she
was very active in the Historical Society and La
Causerie, found the Gym to satisfy her athletic
strivings, and the "Ubyssey" her literary ambition.
Gay, witty, and a good friend, Jean has made everybody love her. Daughter of a doctor—does this
account for her schoolgirl complexion?

U.B.C. Specializing in Economics and Commerce,
Humphrey is an industrious and painstaking student
who, although modest and retiring, has decided
opinions of his own, which he is not at all backward at expressing on occasion. He is of the Anglican persuasion and studies the art of war in the
C.O.T.C. Humphrey has spent some time in travel,
having visited South Africa, Australia and the Pacific
Bringing action and vitality to everything she
does, Marian's college years have been marked by
that elusive combination, good marks and good times.
In the hidden corners of her nature, she shields a
number of surprising qualities. She is a violinist;
she has a keen business sense, which will stand her
in good stead in connection with the post-grad, work
she intends to take up in an Eastern university; and
she has the quality of surprising originality.

"Fran" comes from Saskatchewan and joined
our ranks in the Junior year, after spending two
years at Regina College. She is interested in English
and History and is an ardent supporter of clubs,
being a member of the Literary Forum, International
Relations, Philosophy Discussion, Gym Club and
S.C.M. She has a keen sense of humour, and her
ready smile and sympathetic personality have won
her many friends.
George never settled down to anything in particular—scholastically he tried a bit of everything
making very high marks, and athletically sampled a
little tennis and was "cox" for the Varsity crew for
three years, incidently winning his Small Block. For
quiet in lectures he has no regard but many are
indebted to him for his witty remarks which helped
to while away the time in dull periods.
Marjorie entered U.B.C. in her Junior year,
taking two years at Victoria College where she distinguished herself as a splendid, all-round scholar.
She has ably upheld that reputation at Varsity in her
chosen line of work—Latin, English and Psychology.
Marjie's activities are not limited to the scholastic
alone, as she is a proficient and enthusiastic member
of the Skating Club, belongs to Literary Forum and
Classics Club. She expects to return for Education
and we wish her every success in her teaching career.
Coming from a family of medicos, Don has felt
himself called to follow the family profession, and
so has become a "Pre-Med." Thus he has spent most
of his Varsity career quietly, but by no means
sleepily, polishing off numerous Zoology courses, with
a few Chemistries thrown in to make things lively.
Don, although undoubedly saturnine, has a quiet
charm that interests people in him. His friends
know the value of his honesty and respect his
Betty has been one of the strongest members of
the Debaters' Club, an international debater in the
first two years, vice-president of the Debaters' Union
in her Sophomore year, and president of this organization in the first half of the third year. Besides
being an Honour student in English as a junior,
Betty had the honour of being student producer of
the Musical Society in its Spring performance, as
well as being vice-president of the Society. In her
Senior year Betty was vice-president of the graduating class and a member of the Letters Club.

During her four years at Varsity, Margaret has
been active in several fields of college life. She was
a Musical Society member for the first two years,
captain of the Hockey team in second year, and captain and vice-president in the third. In her Junior
and Senior years, she has been a regular member of
La Canadienne, and an enthusiast of the Badminton
Club, of which she is secretary this year. None of
these positions ever worries her, however, or prevents
her from attaining honours.
Our first impression of Margaret is that she is
reserved, but those of us who know her best find
her most entertaining. She is a brilliant and steady
student, and faithful attendant at lectures. In her
favourite subject, French, she makes the high marks
worthy of her consistent work, and she is also an
active member of La Canadienne. Next year Marg.
plans to come back for Education, and we feel she
will be successful in this field.
Our "Versatile Bill" hailed from Port Arthur
in 1927. After indulging in four years of college
activities he does not lack one atom of his contagious
enthusiasm. To Bill falls the honour of managing
two successful presidential campaigns of Alma Mater.
He has held executive positions in musical, hockey
and athletic departments, and the treasurership of
Arts '31 with conspicuous ability. He is also prominent as a runner, chess player, warbler, puck-chaser,
and philosopher. We wish Bill every success in his
post-graduate work in Theology.
French, English and German are the least of
Elfrida's worries; first classes are simply a matter of
course. We wonder how she manages to draw
such life-like portraits during lectures, and still retain the ability of knowing every question asked.
She has many outside interests; attends La Causerie,
excels in originality at Der Deutsche Verein, plays
badminton and is a member of L'Alliance Francaise.
As for next year, she hasn't yet made up her mind
about that.
In spite of Dorothy's apparent indifference towards lectures, she has always managed to achieve
honours in her major subjects,—English, Latin, and
French. Her ability to read between the lines and
to form her own opinions has been the cause of her
high standards in English. If any information is
required about the latest shows, ask Dorothy! Although she has often threatened to leave us, we
sincerely  hope she will  be with us again next  year.

"Much may be made of a Scotchman if he be
caught young"—proof, Jean. Jean was born in the
Land of the Heather, but came to Canada when she
was very young. We haven't yet got over the shock
we received when she told us she was going to be a
"sawbones." Jean spent last year at the University
of Alberta where she completed her second year
med. and helped to put the University on the map.
After getting her B.A., Jean intends to go east to
finish her medical course.
"Jimmie" contracted a fatal longing for Mathematics while attending the Duke of Connaught High
School, New Westminster. Since coming to Varsity,
he has successfully tackled numerous Mathematics
and Physics courses. He is honouring in Mathematics, and is an "old-reliable" of the Mathematics
Club. Besides being a brilliant student, Jimmie is
popular with all who know him. Next year will
see him learning the art of imparting knowledge to
the adolescent mind.
"Looks sanctimonious but acts like an imp."
Grace is an enthusiastic member of the Musical
Society and was seen in this year's production. She
manages to maintain good marks without much
work. Because of her unlimited capacity for tasting
most of her time is spent in the Aggie building.
However, a few hours a week she can be seen studiously dissecting cats, chickens, etc., in the Zoology
lab. It is rumoured that her future will be divided
between  dairying and  Arthurism.
Johnny emigrated from Britannia High four
years ago and came to Varsity to join the Class of
'31. After being exposed to the various courses of
first and second years, he chose Physics and Maths,
in which to exert his abilities and make his mark.
Johnny is also known as a soccer player, and was
a member of the Junior team, playing inside right.
Next year, weather permitting, Johnny hopes to take
a course called Education. Another good man gone
For the last three years the "Ubyssey" staff has
claimed Kay as one of its personnel. On the "Pub"
she has served in the position of "Totem" and
Handbook assistant, Exchange and Associate Editor,
and still retained her sense of humour. Besides wading through countless Exchange papers, and writing
"heads" for the Tuesday "Ubyssey," Kay acts as
secretary-treasurer of the Women's Gym Club, vice-
president of the Literary Forum, and is a member of
La Causerie. She maintains high averages in all her
courses, which include English and History.
Jessie comes each year from Prince Rupert to
attend U.B.C. Interested in English and Philosophy,
she indulges in German and History by way of
diversion. However, even when struggling through
English 19 reference books or writing history essays,
Jessie can always find time for afternoon tea with
one of her friends. Next year will find her at McGill delving into the mysteries of a librarian course.
After a successful Senior Matric. course at Kel-
owna, where he won the scholarship, Dave came to
us in his Sophomore year. Now he is a Maths.
Honour student and a prominent member of the
Mathematics Club. Frequently, when the week's
work is done, Dave may be seen playing hide-and-
seek with a golf ball on the University course. Next
year Dave will come back for his M.A. degree.
Since attending University Don has thoroughly
convinced us that lectures must not be taken too
seriously. Scholastically speaking, Don is interested
in English, Philosophy and Latin. On rare occasions
she may be found in the Library writing one of her
innumerable essays, or near examination time reading Philosophy reference books. Don has not decided
what her career is to be, but is thinking seriously of
continuing her studies in post-graduate work.
Nick entered the precincts of our University in
his Sophomore year, coming from Maple Ridge. His
chief interest has been in Economics, and his activities
in this direction include the presidency of the Social
Science Club and vice-presidency of the Law Club.
Journalism has also had its interests for Nick, who
has been associated with the "Ubyssey" for the past
three years. His histrionic ability manifested itself
in the Thoth Club performances. After leaving the
University, Nick intends to court the muse of Law.
In spite of her demure and leisurely manner,
Rufus is a very capable little person, with very decided opinions of her own. This quiet capability is
manifested in the Musical Society of which she has
been a valuable member of the soprano section for
three years. In addition, her services are much
appreciated on the executive as costumes convener
for "The Pirates of Penzance." In her more serious
moments she worries over History and English essays
as befits an aspiring pedagogue.

During her four years at University, Mabel has
shown herself to be a genial, happy-go-lucky student.
Maths. Honours do not seem to bother her, as she
is also taking two extra courses in English. But
Mabel finds grass hockey more interesting even than
Maths. This year she is secretary of the Grass
Hockey Club. Mabel also belongs to the Mathematics
Club and, with her activities outside Varsity, finds it
almost impossible to "squeeze in" her studying.
Frank's whole-hearted participation in student
activities has won him genuine admiration from a
wide circle of friends. As president of the Student
Christian Movement last year, he did much to enrich its established reputation. The presidency of
the Literary and Scientific Executive he has likewise filled with befitting dignity and discerning
ability. His contributions to the Letters Club, the
Musical Society, and Debating Union have been of
substantial   character.     We  wish   him  every  success.
"Don't let a little thing worry you," murmurs
Marian, or "Mac", as she is called more frequently,
while she samples your lunch or ice-cream cone.
Even such little things as studies don't seem to bother
her, for she assimilates enough knowledge during her
wanderings through the Library to make good grades
in such trials as Economics and Maths. Her car
"Ben-Hur" is a campus favourite, both as a conveyance and as a rendezvous for over-worked students.
Although he played English rugby in his Sophomore year, John is now a Canadian rugby addict.
Last year he was one of the backfield of the Junior
team. In his Senior year he has displayed his bent
for executive work, being vice-president of the Club,
and one of those in charge of the training camp and
the Hamilton Tigers Series. Majoring in Economics
and English, John intends to teach for a year or two,
after which he will study law.
Ethel has always been a live and valuable participant in many student activities. First and third
year debating furnished a useful background for her
later position as secretary of the Philosophy Club.
Recently she was in Portland as delegate of the International Relations Club. We heard she liked Portland. What's the reason, Ethel? Her major study
is Economics—her ambition to become a European
buyer. Ethel's ready smile and cheery friendliness
will be missed in the corridors.
Edith, with her unruffled and debonair manner,
is a loyal and true friend when one knows her. She
has ambitions in the field of journalism, and to gain
experience in this line is a member of the "Ubyssey"
staff. Her favourite haunt is the "Pub" office where
she checks copy and rewrites reports quite cheerfully.
She has a positive genius for picking courses with
the largest possible number of free afternoons and
Originally with Arts '29, Tom postponed his
quest for knowledge for two years because of illness,
and wisely chose to "get there" on good ship '31,
majoring in Zoology and Bacteriology. He is remembered as the one who twirled the ball from the
mound for *29 against Science, although he never
tells us the results. During his spare time, he wages
dictatorial power in guiding the destinies of the Vancouver Japanese Student Association. After graduation Tom intends to continue his studies in the field
of medical science.
Gladys is from Victoria—perhaps that is the
reason she is so attractive. After two years at Victoria College she came to Varsity, carrying on the
good work in Latin buried in the gloomy stacks.
Next year will see Gladys here again for Education
—and our jealous nature makes us hope that no one
else will have our chance of finding what a perfect
room-mate she is! Although teaching is ostensibly
the end Gladys has in view, we feel sure it is merely
a stepping-stone to an artistic career.
Entering whole-heartedly into all that University life had to offer, Eric's first conquest was in
dramatics, where he captured prominent roles in two
Spring productions. In athletics, Eric captained the
Freshman Soccer team; in second year played Canadian Rugby, and when, forced out of the strenuous
sports through injuries, joined the Swimming Club.
Tor his reputation as an administrator, Eric has been
president of his class, Junior Member of Council, the
power behind the Arts '31 Valedictory project and
the chairman of that energetic committee that tried
valiantly to wring shekels out of rural British Columbians in the great Stadium Campaign.
Helen, popularly known as "Teddy," is renowned for getting her engagements mixed, for being
exceptionally adept in repartee, and as a keen rugby
enthusiast. During her college career, Teddy has
taken part in skating, swimming, tennis and golf.
She is a member of the Classics Club, as well as
the late member of French class. Teddy's secret
ambition is to be an actress, but she feels that fate
will  intervene  in  the  form  of a  pedagogical  career.

Cres matriculated from Britannia High away
back in 1927. Joining the class of '31 he proceeded
with the usual preliminaries of the lower years, and
then decided to acquire a cultural background, pursuing the study of English and Latin. Creswell
possesses a genial personality and is sure to be a success in whatever pursuit he follows. Rumour has it
that he will be back for Education next year.
Zora's home is in Waldo, B. C, but she came to
Varsity from St. Margaret's School, Victoria. She is
one of U.B.C.'s most loyal supporters, never missing
a meeting, a game, or a dance. Her weakness is
Zoology labs., and her ambition to get a B.Sc. degree.
She is always ready to skate or ride, and even to hike
if it is only to the gates. Zora surely seems to enjoy
life and has made a host of friends at Varsity.
After two years' experience as freshman and
sophomore, which should have taught him better,
Hugh became an Honour Physics student, retiring
to a course in Education as a senior. He is expected
to become a teacher. Besides having a good scholastic standing, Hugh partakes of his full share of
extra-curricular interests. He played soccer for '31

Physics Club. Hugh's character is best revealed in
his above likeness.

Though her picture looks like the inspiration
for Wordsworth's "Ode to Duty," Frances is really
a much less serious person. She is absolutely irrepressible, even in lectures. Her main interests are
French, in which she is honouring, and English. She

Francaise. Between lectures she is usually to be
found on the tennis courts or holding forth in the
Upper Common Room.    Her weakness—Science men!

Marg. makes known her presence by a gay
laugh that is characteristic of her cheerful, happy-
go-lucky disposition. She is not one who has books
for her constant companions, but with periods of
concentrated study, when the occasion demands, she
has managed to keep up a very creditable scholastic
record. She is an enthusiastic member of the Outdoors Club. Marg. intends to return to Varsity next
year, when she will learn to expound the mysteries
of French and Latin to the rising generation.
After matriculating from Britannia High, Rex
came to Varsity with the Class of '31. Since then
he has been at work striving to satisfy his innate
desire for Physics and Maths. Rex has been a member of the Physics Club since it was organized and
during the past year held the office of secretary
in the Radio Club. Next year, Rex is coming back
to receive training in Education so that he may pass
on  his  scientific  knowledge  to  the  next  generation.
We know a lot about Marj. since she arrived
at U.B.C. from Magee—so much that her past history doesn't count. She is vice-president of the
Swimming Club and spends her mornings splashing
around at 8 a.m. Besides winning her Big Block
award and playing badminton, she occasionally appears in the Zoo. and Botany labs, long enough to
turn everything upside down. She is noted for losing
shoes which are usually found hanging to chandeliers.
In spite of French Honours and English first
classes, Lou never looks half as serious as would be
expected. She can usually be found in the stacks,

Other diversions: tennis, tea, and sometimes badminton; collecting Class Party tickets (not as curiosities),
and illustrating Cyrano. Pet phrase (used before
lectures): "Oh, I do hope he's not coming today!"
She will probably take Education next year.

chiefly in languages—English, French and German—
and intends to take a Librarian course after graduation. In preparation for this she utilized her spare-
time in gaining practical experience in our own

we hope she'll change her mind in favour of Education.
One of '31's most outstanding men. In his

specializing in Latin and English and is a close runner-up for first-class standing. She has duly appeared on the campus every September for four years,
so we ceased to have fears of losing her. At present,
she hints at attending Normal next year, but we expect she'll turn up to swell the ranks of Ed. *32.

Margery attended Columbian College, later coming to U.B.C. to enter her second year in Arts and
to frequent the far-renowned "Smith House." Her
college career has been punctuated by many essays,

she will enter the Education Class of '32.
Ron's major diversion for the past two years has

Isabel is an object of wonder for two outstanding reasons: first, she takes four Englishes and a
German, and gets all her work done; secondly, she
can, with a comparatively small amount of hair,
produce a solid and quite permanent bun! She is
addicted to walking home from Varsity—somet'mes
it takes half an hour—generally longer. This amazing fact has been explained by SCIENCE. Isabel is
hoping to be a librarian some day, so look for her

Nic has spent most of his time at Varsity in
keeping up with his somewhat varied courses in
Geology, Chemistry and German. He is a member
of the G. M. Dawson Club, and in the summer
amuses himself with a plane table on Geological Surveys. He has been closely connected with the Badminton Club of which he was president for two years.
Besides being prominent in B. C Badminton circles,
as several championships can show, he is often seen in
successful action on the tennis court.

spirit club," but that's forgotten now. The Stadium
Campaign too, claimed his interest and he supported
it in the capacity of publicity manager.
Happy is the person who has Vera for a friend
during her college course. She is always ready to
listen to troubles and to sympathize, always ready
to help—except in the matter of this write-up. She
has taken an active part in student activities, having
been a member of the Art Club and Badminton Club,
and is this year treasurer of L'Alouette. Vera's
specialty is French, and she is looking forward to
studying in Paris next year.
Jack, as he is commonly known, comes originally
from Winnipeg. He is taking Honours in Chemistry,
and can usually be found in the upper stories of the
Science building. Jack also dabbles in Physics and
Mathematics courses, and generally makes a first-
class average. Besides this, he guides the course of
the Chemistry Society in his office as president. Jack
plans to return next year for his M.A., and we can
forecast a brilliant career for him in his chosen
Sheila will probably be best remembered for
her superb performance as "Friend Hannah" in the
University Spring Play of 1930. As well as being a
member of the Players' Club for three years, Sheila
also was a member of the Badminton Club, and
played on the University team. In this, her graduating year, she has dropped all outside activities for a
strenuous University year; she is majoring in Bacteriology, and will attempt to get hospital work in
that line.

The other of two, daily seen in the parking
space plaintively inquiring of the casual passer-by,
"Do you know anyone going in at three?" With
the exception of this astonishing daily outburst,
Alice is quite a retiring person—to those who don't
know her. Regularly once a year she has grown
her hair and cut if off. This year she has acquired
a "bun." Somehow, she manages high seconds and
the odd first in English and Philosophy.
Behold a son of New Westminster, and an embryo prof. Lyle is just another of those students
who prefers to spend his time among the weird contraptions in the Chem. lab. to lounging in the caf.
As a result he has an excellent scholastic record in
his Chemistry Honours course. Among his other
ests on the campus is the Chemistry Society, of
which he is secretary. To all by whom he is best
known, Lyle is a real friend, always cheerful, smiling, nonchalant, single.
Personality and pep characterize this small member of '31. During her four years we have met her
constantly at faculty and basketball dances, and yet
she always manages to obtain brilliant essay marks.
For the past two years Norma has been an active
member of the Philosophy Club, but her major interests are in English and History. A business course a
year ago did not prove sufficiently fascinating, and
Norma has decided to take her place next year in the
Teacher's Training group.
Coming to Varsity in second year as a graduate
from Brentwood College, Ned entered into a changed
life at the University with enthusiasm, striking a
happy medium between athletic, scholastic and social
activities. As might be expected English rugby has
been his ruling passion. He played Intermediate for
two years and is now a member of the Super-Varsity.
Badminton has also claimed a great deal of his time
and his attendance at the gym is always a welcome
feature.    Ned is graduating in education.
Roberta's day is one perpetual pilgrimage between Latin, French and German dictionaries. Although never heard to exclaim, "I simply adore
Vergil!" she seems to enjoy her linguistic pursuits.
When she is finally loosed upon the youth of our
province, her inexhaustible patience and good humour
will be very helpful to her in inculcating the indes-
pensable precept "the fifth foot of an hexametre is
always a spondee'—or is it a dactyl?

"Bea" needs no introduction. She is a member
of the Varsity Outdoors Club, and one of the few
women in that organization who has mastered the
art of skiing (?). She has a smile for everyone and
neither the memory of the past exams nor the prospect of the coming ones can dampen her lively
spirit. Bea intends to register next year with Education '32.    She is majoring in History and English.
John was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, but has
received all his education in Vancouver. He is
majoring in History and English, maintaining a high
second-class average. Both as a member of this
year's class executive and as a member of the Valedictory Committee, he has advanced the prestige of
'31. Nevertheless his interests are mainly centred in
a certain blonde person. After graduation John intends to teach High School, and will take Education
either at U.B.C. or in California.
It is hard to believe that Bebe is one of the
mighty seniors. Her college days are filled with
"one lab. after another." Her interest this year is
in the Aggie and Dairying courses because of her
unlimited tasting capacity. However Bebe has not
confined herself entirely to the sciences; for diversion
she has chosen French and German. Bebe is another
of these fortunate people who plans to take postgraduate work in Toronto, after which she will continue to pursue the elusive bacterium.
The serious-looking gentleman with the noble
mien and platonic brow is none other than Roy
Henry Temple. Senior "B" Basketball player of note
and a Canadian Rugby enthusiast of no mean ability,
Roy has endeared himself to many with his infectious
smile and genial personality. Many a fair co-ed will
probably have "le creve-coeur" when he leaves,
though it is rumoured in some circles that he will
be with us again next year in Education; yea, The
Temple Bells shall ring again, and right merrily.

Arts *3 0. One year of that sufficed, and for three
years Harriet has been instructing the young while
earning her units on the side. She has now come

the best scouts going, well-known for her ready wit
and cheerful manner. Her favourite sports are skating, snowshoeing, skiing and attending summer session.

Jim is a quiet conscientious member of the
Class of '31. An honour graduate of King Edward
High School, his chief interests centre in Mathematics and Physics. He is an active member of
the Mathematics and Physics Clubs, and when not
engaged in astronomical and physical calculations,
finds much interest in the work of secretary of the
V.C.U. Jim is an enthusiastic soccerite and hiker.

"Stu" began his college days in the old buildings
at Fairview with Arts '27. After an absence of four
years, spent in the employ of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, he returned to finish his
education with Arts '31. Although he takes no
active part in college sports, "Stu" is one of our
enthusiastic supporters and it is whispered that he
wields a wicked bat at baseball. His pleasing personality has won him a number of friends.
Verna is one of those delightful persons who
are always ready to hear everybody's confidences,
from "What happened last night," to a post-mortem
of German lectures. Though she seems to visit the
stacks but rarely, she has undergone with suave indifference the delights of high history marks, and
the terrors of English 9 and Ec. 6. Football is her
hobby (or is it a certain football player?). To those
fortunate people who know her, she has proved a
charming friend.
Jean has been very active in sports during her
four years at U.B.C. She has played Senior "A"
Basketball since her first year, and was a member
of the team which won the Women's World Basketball Championship at Prague last year. She also
belonged to the Swimming Club for two years. In
her more studious moments, Jean attends lectures in
Mathematics and English. Her ambition for the
future is to study Physical Education.
Joe is one of our all-round students who has
made a name for himself as a scholar and an athlete
since he came to U.B.C. three years ago with several
years of teaching experience. Honouring in History,
he is president of the Historical Society. As a debater he is well known in the Debating Union,
while in the line of sport he is a proficient Canadian
Rugby player. Next year he intends to return to
U.B.C. to study for his M.A. degree.
Unfortunately for U.B.C, Wilma did not grace
this institution with her presence until her Sophomore year. To find her industriously reading volumes in a lighter vein behind some broad-shouldered
student's back is definite proof that lectures are not
always interesting. Outside of that Wilma is majoring in History and Economics. Her need for recreation finds an outlet in playing on the Senior "B"
Basketball team, as well as being an active member
of the Basketball Club.
One of the most promising young Japanese in
B.C. Came to Canada after acquiring a firm knowledge of his native language. Economics and Philosophy are his favourite studies at the University.
Judging from the interest that he takes in "Pacific
Problems" one should not be surprised if he became
a world-famous politician. As a gentleman, he is
second to none; as a student he ranks with the most
conscientious. In him Arts '31 has one Japanese
student who is a Japanese in the true sense of the
Idele's university career has been a glorious one.
She entered Victoria College with three scholarships,
and has added more each year. At U.B.C, besides
History Honours, Idele has made time to enjoy the
Historical Society, Letters Club, I.R.C., Gym Club,
and the secretaryship of the Social Science Club. She
also looks after S.C.M. publicity and holds a record
for attendance at every S.C.M. camp. Next year
she hopes to continue her studies in the eastern
States, and  later in London.

Margot is another of the bright and shining
lights from Victoria College. Since coming from
Victoria her occupation has been, in her own words,
"Work—in between whiles," but her creditable record
at U.B.C. proves it to have been more than in between whiles. Margaret is a member of the Skating
Club, and is well known in S.C.M. groups and Copper Cove camps. As she proposes to instruct the
rising generation, she will be a member of Education
Among the permanent settlers from the real invasion from Victoria, we find Bob. His two years
among us have been spent in assimilating most of
the advanced courses of the faculty of Classics. For
recreation he indulges in the busman's holiday of
officiating as secretary of the Classics Club. The
success of this persistent specialization is shown by
his holding of the May Longstaff and Alliance Francaise scholarships, and his future achievements along
this line of endeavour seem to be limited only by
his ambition.
Margaret is one of these lucky persons who can
write essays and read books without worrying about
having them done on time. He academic interests
are English, Philosophy and German. The latter
occupies her noon hours and the Philosophy Club
an occasional evening. Marg's hours behind the
Library desk benefit her friends, for she knows
which books are the best. She is leaving us next
year to continue her librarian work at Berkley, and
we wish her every success.
After crossing the ocean from England, Alf
spent his early teens in eastern Canada. Feeling the
lure of B.C., he migrated to Vancouver and completed his high school education at Burnaby South.
In the fall of '27 he entered the U.B.C. with the
Class of '31. Alf has engaged in various lines of
sport of which rugby, badminton and skating head
the list. In his academic pursuits, Latin and French
are his first choice, and as a language teacher, we
predict for him a brilliant  future.
Winnie is constructed pendulum fashion, swinging between the University and the Alexandra Orphanage. This performance is not indicative of insanity,
but merely of Winnie's intention to become a Social
Service Worker. Such a lofty ambition keeps her
nose firmly cemented to the grindstone, except for
occasional outbreaks such as dressing up as a bald
old man, and ambling benignly round the Tea Kettle
Inn. In her more expansive moments, Winnie confesses to a passion for hiking, riding and fishing.

IN the yeare of our Lord, 1933, the members of ye noble classe of Arts
'33 will become ye full-fledged lordes and ladies forsoothe with divers
wonderful letters affixed to their names. Full many a yeare will pass
before such a noble classe will again enroll in this noble institutione.
Many illustrious knights, strong of arme, albeit weak in ye booke
learninge, and many faire maidens count themselves members of this
gallante companie. And in all ye lines of humane occupatione do they
stand forth like buttresses and shine like lighted lamps. First, there be
ye stronge men who hurl themselves mightely in the pathe of the foe,
defending and striving for rare goblets. They be Howard Cleveland,
Derry Tye, Art Murdock, Jack Steele, Jim Winters and Frank Perdue.
And noble athletes there be in Bob Osborne and Cyril Lee, who are in
that noble bande called "Hendersonians," while Gladys Munton doth
uphold the faire ones. In the famous Players' Guilde there be Mary
Darnborough, Jack Ruttan and Mark Collins, while MacKay Esler doth
hold forth with bird-like voice in the Societee of Royale Musicianes.
They are led in the days of peace and strife alike by one Sir Ronald
Howard, a most noble lord, who doth lament most bitterly on the lack
of spirit shown by his lackies. As in all good tales there be a wench, one
Lady Mary Matheson, who undoubtedly is the power behind noble undertakings, for she doth dash hither and yon finding swaines to carry out
her various wishes. The official scribe is Jean McNaughton who doth
record all things that happen in ye numerous classe gatherings. A most
important man is Donald Davidson, keeper of all official accounts and
scribe of the Doomsday Booke. Andree Harper and Bill Dunford dothe
induce young knights and maidens to attend the joustes and feats-of-
arms; Millicent Spain and John White advocate the following of the
Muse; while Isabella Arthur doth call together all assemblies at the sound
of a trumpete.
And when the Noble Institutione did need a new jousting fielde
and a proclamatione went forth from the mighty Councile, this noble
bande did set their backs and did slave mightily. So endeth this short
storee of Arts '33.

THE "Green Death" eliminated fewer members from the Frosh
this year. The decrease in the death list was the result of higher
percentages in the examinations written before Christmas. Almost
immediately after the holidays Arts '34 summoned to its presence eight
whole and light-hearted friends from among the knights and dames of the
first year; Doug Brown was appointed president to govern a committee
composed of Nance Carter, Myrtle Sutton, Stuart Keats, Marjorie Ellis,
Jack Emmerson, Mary McLean and Alf. Allan.
Although the general idea is that Freshmen and Freshettes have a
great knack for occurring when least desired, they have proved that they
are a great necessity to many of the teams; English rugby, Canadian
rugby, basketball, soccer, grass-hockey, tennis, badminton, swimming
and track.
Arts '34 is well represented in both the Players' Club and the
Musical Society, several members having taken part in the Christmas and
Spring Plays. The most prominent
members of the Players' Club from the
First Year are Marjorie Ellis, Nancy
Symes, Eleanor Turnbull, Maudeen
Farquhar, Hilda Bone, Jack Emerson,
C. Taylor. Several of our members
took leading parts in the "The Pirates
of Penzance" presented by the Musical
Society, Sophie Witter, Alice Rowe
Catherine Bridgman, Gordon Wilson
and Margaret McCutcheon.
The skits put on by the Freshies at
Homecoming and at the Pep Meetings
won't be forgotten very quickly. Socially, Arts '34 shone with the Fall Tea
Dance and the Spring Class Party. The
annual Class Party was held on February 21st and seemed to be one of the
most popular dances of the year, if one
could judge by the numbers of Seniors
who were present.
The Freshmen acknowledged no
superiors in maintaining the cry for
the stadium, and will certainly continue to uphold the glory of their Alma
Mater in future years.

team. In interclass basketball our teams, though never winning the
championship, have given the others a good fight, with such players as
Roy Temple and Jack Streight. Bob Chapman, member of the victorious Senior "A" Basketball team has played for two seasons. On the
Big Four Canadian Rugby team Lyle Jestley has been playing end for the
past year, and numerous members of the Class have turned out for the
Intermediate team. In English rugby, Bert Griffin played on the
McKechnie Cup team. Larry Greig and Frank Hall in boxing and John
Foubister in swimming are other outstanding athletes of the Class. In
Track the success of our previous years has been continued under the
able leadership of Leo Gansner, president of the Track Club. This year
he came first in the Cross Country Race for the second time.
The women of Arts '31 have also been well represented on athletic
teams. Jean Whyte and Lois Tourtellotte are on the Senior "A" Basketball team and last year they played with the team in the Olympics. In
Senior "B" Basketball we have Wilma Watson and Helen McGuire.
Margery Peele takes an important part in swimming. Mabel MacDonald
and Margaret Moscrop are grass hockey players of note, and Margaret
Harris is president of that Club.
In Debating and Oratory, Arts '31 has had many able speakers:
Earl Vance, James Gibson, Margaret Miurhead.
On the Students' Council, Arts '31 is represented by Don Hutchison
as President, Jean Telford, as President of the Women's Undergraduate
Society, Margaret Muirhead as Secretary, Betty Buckland as President
of Women's Athletics, Frank MacKenzie as President of the L.S.E., and
Alan Campbell as President of the Men's Undergraduate Society.
In the Players' Club we have been well represented by Eileen Griffin,
Anne Ferguson, Alfred Evans, Eric North, Maurice Clement, Betty
Buckland, Shiela Tisdall, Ernie Gilbert, Paul Wolfe, Frank Hall, and
James Gibson.   Winston Shilvock is President of the Club this year.
In the Musical Society, we have Nelson Allen, the President, Maysie
Graham, Secretary, Ruth MacDonald, Bill Selder, Norma Brent and
Everett Hurt.
Ronald Grantham is editor of the "Ubyssey" this year and has been
well assisted by Edgar Brown, Bessie Robertson and Kathleen Murray.
In our Senior year we have had as our Executive, Bert Griffin, President; Betty Moore, Vice-President; Mavis Holloway, Secretary; Bill
Selder, Treasurer; Verna Bolton, Women's Literary Representative;
Frank Hall, Men's Literary Representative; Helen McGuire, Women's
Athletics; Leo Gansner, Men's Athletics and John Taylor, Class Reporter.
We have been extremely fortunate again this year in having as our
Honorary President, Dr. W. N. Sage, and we wish to take this opportunity of thanking him for the way in which he has advised and helped
us, and sympathized with all our undertakings.
("1 The Class History of Commerce 31
HPHIS year the first class in the faculty of Commerce graduates, under
■*■ the guidance of Professor J. Friend Day, head of the department.
The faculty was organized two years ago at the insistence of the downtown business men and the students who realized that such a department
is necessary to a modern university.
Already two scholarships have been offered, one by the Harbour
Board and the other by Mr. I. J. Klein. Also a book prize has been offered
for proficiency in higher accounting.
The history of the first two years of the Class in the University is
lacking owing to the fact that it was unfortunately identified with the
Faculty of Arts. It counts among its seventeen members students prominent in every field of university activities.
The best known is Arnold Henderson, Business Manager and
Captain of the Senior "A" Basketball team. Jerry Ballentine is President of the English Rugby Club and Ron Burns is Captain of the Super-
Varsity. Jordan Guy's forensic ability has upheld the class honour in
debating. Lyle Jestley and Basil Wright have made their marks in
Canadian rugby and soccer respectively. The scholarships last year
were won by Frank Hallonquist and Don Grant. Maurice Clement
has represented the Class in the Players' Club. Socially, the Class contains the cream of the University. Mention should be made of Miss
Jean Spencer, the only woman in the Class.
The faculty promises to rival Science in the difference in the size
of the entering and graduating years. After the rigors of Accounting I.
less than half the Class returned to register in higher accountancy.
This year we have been very fortunate in securing the services of
men prominent in their chosen professions, namely: Mr. Tupper, Mr.
Plommer and Mr. Field. In addition, we have had the privilege of
hearing several business men who gave us an insight into the business
world. The Class has also taken several interesting trips to inspect local
To the date of this writing the Commerce Class has not been
officially organized but we hope that next year's class will start the year
as a live organization.
We predict that this faculty will make a name for itself in the
business world and from it will be recruited the future captains of

Stirling, a native son of Vancouver, came to
Varsity from King George High with the earnest
intention of entering Science. By a laudable change
of mind, however, he remained in Arts. In summer
the "Bulldog Fleet" claims his attention; in winter,
well, we would say a course carrying eighteen units
in fourth year is sufficient to keep anyone out of
mischief. We prophesy titanic upheavals in the
world of trade and commerce shortly, for that is
Stirling's chosen field of endeavour.
Having obtained his B.A. degree with the Class
of 1930, Russ. came back to his old haunts to take
his B. Comm. While at University Russ. has managed to find time to swim and to serve on the Club
executive. Rugby has also claimed his attention,
and he was captain of the Second Intermediate team
in his Sophomore year. Aside from his excellent
marks, Russ. has the additional honour of being the
sole charter member of the Society of Bunt in Commerce.
Otherwise Gerry, has led an intensely varied
career throughout his four years at University. He
played rugby in his first year but due to an illness,
he has had to confine himself to the executive positions of secretary, vice-president and president of the
Rugby Club. Besides these he has been a member of
the Men's Athletic Executive and a tactful president
of the Inter-Fraternity Council. As a Bachelor of
Commerce, he intends to forsake his survey and cannery interests for more lucrative business pursuits.
To possess an amiable disposition and a likeable
personality is a rare virtue. Tommy combines both
elements in fine proportion. His activities in track
and Canadian football stamp him as an athlete who
has acquired a most deserved reputation for excellent
performance. An Arts and Commerce degree are his
scholastic objectives, which should ensure ultimate
success in some phase of business activity.
Ron's major activities in the last five years have
been furthering the cause of the English Rugby
Club both as a player and as an executive. He has
held successively the offices of secretary-treasurer of
the English Rugby Club and of the Men's Athletic
Association for two years. This year he captains the
crack Super-Varsity team, and when called upon,
plays a useful game for the Seniors. Although he
started slowly Ron. is now knocking down high
second class averages with little apparent effort.
{67} IpfflE^
Besides being fair and the chief reason why so
many Freshettes try for the Players' Club, Maurice
has taken an active interest in swimming and rowing
circles, as well as distinguishing himself in the forensic field. In his spare moments he may be found
compiling long columns of statistics for the Education department. Maurice is one of the bright lights
of the Commerce class, and intends one day to see
if Ec. 4 really does help one to amass a fortune.
Pet aversion—rehearsing with a sandwich.
Fred has now been haunting Sasamat and points
west for five years, having had "admitto te" said over
him when Arts *30 made its exit, and having returned
this year for his B. Comm. During the past year
his word has been law in the Society of Thoth,
where he is hailed as Grand Scribe. In athletics he
labours daily to restore shape to a recalcitrant Ford
tire. Outside of this, he spends his spare time in
working out Stat, problems and airing his opinions
Don is well-known in every circle of University
life. He has played ice-hockey, is prominent in social
activities and is one of the outstanding men in the
Commerce Faculty, having won the Scholarship for
General Proficiency in his Junior year. Don has
made the unusually successful combination of a
minimum number- of outside activities with a maximum amount of marks. "Vox populi, vox Dei"—
Don will make a million some day, (whisper) despite his weakness for Freshettes!
Frank is another student for whom the University need offer no apology. The yearly publishing
of examination results consistently reveals his name
among the first half-dozen. A graduate in Arts of
last year, winning the Harbour Board Scholarship,
Frank is this year taking his B. Comm., and at the
same time assists the erring ones in Statistics I. Besides his scholastic work, Frank is interested in golf.
A man of many parts is Arnold: Senior "A"
basketball player extraordinary, Business Manager for
two years and a social light of no mean brilliance.
Along scholastic lines his courses have encompassed
work in Arts, Science and Commerce. Summers have
seen him in canneries and logging camps, and an
-occasional Forestry Survey has been graced by his
lengthy presence. Since Fairview days Arnold has
been one of Varsity's best known men, and our
campus will seem a strangely empty place without

Hails from the Kootenay of which he is inordinately proud. During his trip to the Prairie
as outside wing of the Big Four Canadian Rugby
team, Lyle acquired a title, "Triple Threat," which,
by the way, admirably suits his aggressive fresh
temperament. The Commerce class claims him as
one of its outstanding members. He does good work
as secretary of the Canadian Rugby Club and as
treasurer of the '31 Valedictory committee. Chief
weaknesses, a tendency for sarcasm and for raising
his left eye-brow.
Born in Ottumawa, Iowa, Ed. came to U.B.C.
from Vancouver College and Prince of Wales High
School. As a member of the Department of Commerce he spends most of the day in "our own little
room" in the Aggie building. Ed. has always been
athletically inclined, his interests lying in Canadian
football, track and tennis. Versatile, possessed of a
pungent sense of humour and equipped with a habit
of doing things well, Ed. will enter the world of
commerce as a statistician.
Kim is one of those people who obtained a real
education at Varsity. He has mixed Canadian rugby
and rowing with an appreciable amount of social
activity and scholastic effort. The result has been
a reputation as one of the hardest and most effective
workers on the campus. Kim took his B.A. in 1930
with customary high marks, but he has ambitions
to make a million and to rehabilitate the shipping
business, so he returned  for  a  degree in Commerce.
Bedingfield came to Varsity from Brentwood
College. He started playing Miller Cup rugby, but,
due to injuries, was forced to turn to more congenial
pursuits. The image of sanctorial perfection, Bed-
ingfield has been prominent in the more select social
life of the University. He delights in drawing down
second-classes in pipe courses like English 9. When
Bedingfield enters his chosen field of commerce, we
are sure he will have no difficulty in finding success.
Born in London, and with characteristic eagerness to improve himself, he migrated at the age of
one year to the sunny Okanagan. Basil entered college with the Class of '30, and majoring in Economics, received his B.A. last Spring. Anxious to pre*
pare himself for a business career, he entered the
Commerce department this year. Served on his class
executive for three years; played soccer for four
years. A rapid, thorough worker, endowed with
sound judgment, Basil is sure to succeed.
I» } Education 31
IT may be an undue strain upon both the dignity and the ingenuity of
sophisticated graduates to become once more as little children, but
happily the transition, as it affected this Class, presented no insurmountable barriers. The patronizing and pitying smiles of teachers; the
diabolic machinations of pupils; the tears and triumphs among ourselves
have done their deflating work, but these things have also served to
establish a unity of spirit which distinguishes Education '31.
The activities of the Class were by no means limited to the evolution
of pedagogical proficiency. A theatre party early in the term to see
"Old English;" a Home-Coming skit; a bridge party after mid-term
exams at the home of Kathleen Reid; and a dance at Killarney Hall in
January, were the outstanding social events. In athletics, the Soccer
team hovered around the top of the league all year, and the Basketball

The fortunes of the Class were efficiently guided by the following
executive: Honorary President, Dr. Weir; Honorary Vice-President,
Mr. Black; President, Maurice DesBrisay; Vice-President, Thelma
Mahon; Secretary-Treasurer, Claire Menten; Women's Athletic Representative, Marjorie McKay; Men's Athletic Representative, Campbell
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

gotta get to that hop at Martin's Hall." Whereupon he increased his
velocity according to the law F=MA, and reached the joint 3.88884

Dobson, show Scott the way home," yelled Cornwall as he gave Green
the bounce. Then the rest of the gang of Sc. '31, who, because of the
business depression could only get jobs as Civils, tumbled out. "C'mon

The smouldering sun rose above the western planes, to gaze only
upon a row of tents and empty bottles. Crash! Bang! The silence was
broken by a synchronous snore from Crawford and Anderson, aided by
Barratt's alarm clock, and the bunch rolled out to stretch the endless
chain of steel yet another mile across the unbroken desert. "Here's your
mush, gang," called Buckland. Then Stew Terhune strolled up.
"What's doing to-day, boss?" asked Hill. "Hey, Nesbitt, take those
two bums, Esterbrook and Plant, and complete the survey to Bellingham,
and you, Mathews, sling the gang in the mulligan car and take 'em to
the rail head."
Half way there Nelems woke up and for some reason or other asked
Murray for the next dance.
On reaching the scene of the daily grind, Sandy Smith yelled "S—C

went down with a tie around his neck. Cruise converted. Then Wright,
the grade boss, yelled from the caboose, "The next curve will be

"Bob" graduates this year with a standing which
will be hard to beat. He tied for the track championship in 1927 and won it in 1930. Playing McKechnie Cup rugby and basketball for three years,
winning the pole vault at the W.C.I.A.U. Meet at
Edmonton in 193 0, and holding the Javelin record,
and the Track Cup did not affect his scholastic
record. He is a double course man and was awarded
the Professional Engineers' Book Prize for his 1929
summer essay. Class athletic representative for three
years, and treasurer of the Big Block Club.
After preliminary education in Calgary, Rod
entered U.B.C. in 2nd year Applied Science. He has
rounded out his course by combining very high
scholastic standing with executive and athletic activities. Rod is the perfect secretary, having held
down positions on class executives on more than
one occasion, including that of secretary of the
E.I.C. this year. Being conscientious and energetic,
Rod will be a credit to his chosen profession, Civil
Bert plays rugby. Five Big Blocks in a row
and captain of the McKechnie Cup team would
indicate this. The Science Undergrad. just couldn't
resist making him Athletic Rep. for one year. President of the Big Block Club came as another attainment. Bert has qualities and a voice that allow him
to preside as chairman over the Civils. Bert's resourcefulness and cheery disposition will be a great
asset in smoothing the way for the future.
The youthful flame of the mechanical engineers
of Science '31; Ken always has a cheerful smile for
his classmates and for the young ladies. He started
his Varsity life with Arts '27, and then entered
Science. He is graduating this spring and has hopes
of obtaining a good position. For the rest of his
life, then, his financial troubles are over. Ken is a
good student, having made high averages throughout
his Varsity career, and we hope he will carry on his
good work.
Since Frank entered Varsity as a freshman with
Arts '29 we have known him, not only as a most
capable student, but as one who has always taken a
keen interest in all branches of student activities.
Besides having held the offices of secretary and
treasurer of the Science Men's Undergrad., president
of the Boat Club, and numerous other minor offices,
he has been actively interested in badminton, rugby,
and rowing. Next year will find him carrying on
for a Ph. D. in Geology.
A double course man and a Chemical Engineer,
George entered University with the Class of '28.
He spends his summers employed in the service of
the Forestry Survey Department. During his stay
at U.B.C, George has manifested a keen interest in
all forms of athletics and other student activities.
On graduation he expects to continue in the industrial world of his profession.
Elmer has been with '31 since entering Applied
Science. For the past four years he has been a member of the Outdoors Club, and is fond of all kinds
of sport. Played Intermediate Canadian rugby for
two years and is also interested in skiing, baseball
and tennis. Always quite popular with the girls,
Elmer has found time, in addition to his other activities, to handle numerous dates and still maintain
a high standing in his studies. His chosen profession is Electrical Engineering.
Ken forms half of the Metallurgy class. For
two years he worked on the class executive as Literary representative. A member of the Track Club,
he was, in his second year, a sprinter at Seattle Track
Meet for the Club. Although he persistently claims
that he does not study, his high marks show proof
that he must do some work at odd intervals.
Although he won the Dunsmuir Scholarship t
last year, Ken does not seem satisfied with his choice
of a profession and intends returning to take his
M.A. in Geology. He was president of the Outdoors
Club last year. Ken. is a good man to have along
on a trip in spite of the fact that he has a nasty
habit of getting up and awakening everybody at
6 a.m.    His favourite indoor sport is yo-yoing.
Charlie pulls up the average scholastic attainment of the Forest Engineering quintette by making
high marks himself, and taking time off to explain
the fine points to the rest of us. Unassuming, witty,
and smoothly efficient in all he does. Has an astonishingly wide practical experience from summer jobs.
Varsity interests—E. I. C. and Forest Club. If con-
cientiousness, common sense, and capacity for making friends are an indication of future success,
Charles needn't worry much.

"Esty" and English rugby go hand in hand. The
short half of the Murray-Estabrook Corporation has
played on the McKechnie Cup team for five years.
Matriculating from Kitsilano High School, "Esty"
realized that he was cut out for hard work and so
took Mechanical. So far he has not completely
ruined the Electrical lab. but you know what a
sticker he is. He possesses a jovial countenance and
a fine personality but his writing is terrible. In his
Mechanical career we wish him every success.
George came from Vancouver Island in 1926
and spent one year as a sophomore in the Faculty
of Arts and Science, thus becoming a double course
student. In 1927 he became a member of the Faculty
of Applied Science and commenced his studies as a
Chemical Engineer. George has been very diversified in his interests on the campus and is an active
member in the Outdoors Club, Chemistry Society
and Professional Engineers. He played soccer in
Coming to Varsity from St. Andrew's College,
Toronto, Lloyd joined us in his Sophomore year.
His desire was to become a Civil Engineer, and he
now constitutes twenty per cent, of the Civil *31
class. He has found time to play Canadian rugby
and attend a goodly share of the social functions.
Lloyd is an expert with the steel handbook, generally
underbidding! the rest of the class with the lightest
sections.    We predict for him a brilliant career.
Tom is one of the Forestry quintette. His
activities range from those of sergeant and marksman in the C.O.T.C. to those of upholder of the
law in the Players' Club—from those of president
of the Forest Club to those of president of the
Hockey Club. He also has annexed a B.A. but seems
to prefer to hide his shame. In the summers he is
a hard-boiled logger.
Bob is another of the originals of Science '31.
He hails from Victoria, spends his summers with the
Geological Survey, and usually manages to make
good marks. In his third year, he showed what
he could do if he really wanted to, and collected a
scholarship as top man of his year. At present he
is devoting his time to Geology, and next year intends to take Post-Graduate work in the east.

Ron is the unofficial entertainer of the Mechanical Class of '31, and is very often found holding
the class spellbound with heart-rending melodies
from his accordian. When a boss is wanted in a
lab., "he's the boss." His advice to the world is,
"Dinna pick up any wooden farthings or ye'll get
a muckle clout i the lug." He won't condescend
to lunch in the caf where Freshmen are present, so
he may be found any noon-hour having tea in the
Mechanical lab.
In second and third years Mac fought Arts
men with gusto. In fourth year he didn't fight so
cften nor so hard. In fifth year he is quite subdued
(by exams) and studious. He is the youngest man
in the class and sophisticatedly says, "I've learned
a lot since. I came to this place." Being a neat
printer, Mac is always given the job of "entering
data" in the lab. At noon hours Mac likes to have
something to drink with his lunch—so he makes and
drinks tea in the lab. with three other men.
"Hen" hails from the banks of the Fraser. He
entered Science with the Class of '30, serving on
the executive as vice-president. Spent last winter
watching the northern lights from around the Portland Canal district, and returned this year to join
the mining moguls. Hen has always managed to
combine a keen interest in campus activities with a
Science course, and to make the grade with a clean
ernest Mcdonald kershaw
Ernie is one of the originals of Science '31, and
has held his own with the best of them, even though
he picked the hardest course of the lot—Electrical
Engineering. Besides his studies, he has found time
to take his place in interclass sport, being one of
the big defence men on our soccer team, and the
main half of our battery in baseball. This year a
student branch of the A.I.E.E. was formed and he
is on the executive as secretary-treasurer.
When Victoria sent us Bill, they gave us a man
who has combined athletic executive and social activities with a course in Forestry, and made a brilliant
success of them all. Among his activities are: two
years Big Four Canadian rugby, two years Senior
soccer, secretary of the Forest Club, secretary Men's
Athletic Association. Bill does not say much, but
thinks hard between puffs of his reliable pipe.

Ed. entered Varsity with Arts '29, but after two
years in Arts entered Applied Science with '31. He
is a double-course man in Geology and usually manages to pull down good marks. Much of his extra
time at Varsity is occupied with his duties as president of the G. M. Dawson Geological Discussion
Club and his summers are spent with the Geolog'cal
Survey. Next year he intends to journey east to
study for his Ph.D.
John started with Science '29. After three years
he left for Conowingo, Maryland, where he built a
$50,000,000 hydro plant. He then returned to
U.B.C. to graduate in Mechanical Engineering with
Science '31. Jack is one of the good reasons women
prefer Sciencemen. He might well be called the
"Spirit of Science" for he has always been a leader
in every phase of activity in the Science Men's Undergraduate Society. A few of his positions will indicate his interest—president and vice-president, Science
M. U. S.; vice-president, Science '29; Science Song
Another one of the Mechanicals who is trying
to plug his way to freedom. Elmer having spent
four years at the University of Saskatchewan, came
to the U.B.C. to wind up his college career. He is
an air-minded student and has already obtained his
"wings" in the R.C.A.F. and intends to install a co-
motional motor in his first plane. His ambition is
to get out of an inverted spin and still have his nose
above ground. His favourite indoor sport is writing
up Electricity labs. He can be found any time after
9:30 in the dug-out playing "Once in a lifetime" or
looking for a third harmonic.
Ken is a real Scienceman. Entering Varsity
with Arts '30, his activities in athletics and student
government have been widespread. In h!s Sophomore year he was a prominent member of the Boat
Club and twice has won his big letter as a member
of the McKechnie Cup team for 1930 and '31. He
was president of Science '31 for 1929-30, and president of the Science Men's Undergraduate Society in
his Senior year. Ken hopes to continue his studies
with a view to obtaining his Ph.D. in Chemical
Don came down from Prince Rupert to join
Varsity as a freshman with Arts '29, and then
changed over to Science and spent the next three
years with Science '30. Along with five other miners
Don spent last winter gathering gold and is graduating this year with Science '31. Playing ice-hockey
and skating on the winning relay team for two years
at the Rotary Ice Carnival signify his prowess on the
ice. Don also excels at basketball and soccer, but
his studies have prevented him from participating for

Fuse-blower to C.P.R. hotels. Manathews has played
Canadian rugby, hockey and hookey, but in spite of
the last, usually manages to win out in that annual
Student-Faculty game of April Fool. Gerry will be
remembered as possessor of the sense of humour responsible for many quaint little sayings that have
helped to brighten the lives of his class, both in and
out of lectures; also as co-discoverer of the formula:
Alpha squared =Alf alf a.
Louie is the little ray of sunshine of the Mechanical class. No matter how much we may dislike
a course, he has a word of praise for it, saying that
eventually we will find it of some use. To his
ability "to stick with it" he owes his consistently
high standing in exams. Upon graduation Louie is
going with Allis Chalmers in Wisconsin and will
show what B. C. graduates can do. In his chosen
profession we wish him every success.
Tommy is well known to all of us for his quiet
and unassuming manner. As the Class treasurer, he
has shown the remarkable ability of collecting fees
without creating a name for himself as a public
nuisance. During his Sophomore and Junior years,
Tommy was an essential part of the English Rugby
squad, playing half-back for the second team. Being
a potential Civil Engineer, he has already made an
attempt to solve the Second Narrows problem.
"Bud" (he has other names but they are never
used) is the dark handsome man of the rugby team.
He is probably the most consistently good player on
the team, having played practically every important
game for the past five seasons, being vice-captain for
the last two years. Outside of study, rugby is
Bud's big interest, yet at many a social function he
shakes a mean hoof. Scholastically, in spite of the
time given to campus activities, Bud maintains a
high average without too much trouble. Undoubtedly he will go far in his chosen profession of Mechanical Engineering.
H. E. started with Arts '29 but spent a year in
the north between his third and fourth years of
Science. Although Chilliwack is his home-town, the
"grip of the north" has become so strong that he is
better known as a citizen of Premier. After graduation he intends to travel; New Guinea, Rhodesia,
anywhere a job offers far from the call of his friends
on Saturday night. A student of Geology but a
mining engineer of the future.

Nezzy is probably best known this year on two
counts—as president of the Student Section, E.I.C.
and as the attainer of the only first-class in Science
'31 during the debacle at Christmas, 1930. In his
fourth year he was secretary of the Class, and for
the last two years has played Senior "B" English
Rugby. During the summer of 1929 and 1930, he
attended the flying course at Camp Borden and gets
his "wings" next year.
Vlad was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and
belongs to Russian nobility. He is interested in
Geology and in the fourth year was high man of
the Geological Engineers. He is also on the executive
of the G. M. Dawson Geological Club. During the
summers Vlad or "Oki", as he is also known, has
worked as draughtsman and assayer for various mines
in the province. His chief interests at present are
the Pleistocene Ice Age and causes of glaciation. He
expects to return next year to do post-graduate
work in Geology.
Wattan belongs to the well-known fighting race
of Sikhs, but is himself rather peaceful and believes
in the non-violent, non-resistant policy of Gandhi.
He obtained his early education in India and East
Africa and joined us two years ago from the University of California. He is interested in everything mechanical from chronometers to the government of India. He spends all his spare time in the
service of his community in Vancouver and intends
to return to India to make use of his training as a
Mechanical Engineer.
John L. is a military man—anyone could tell
that from the way he walks. He holds a commission in the C.O.T.C, of which he is an original
member; and enjoys life in the summer as an officer
in the Royal Canadian Air Force. This service will
probably benefit from John's talents after he graduates. Competition is the spice of his life; he likes
boxing, chess and any kind of argument. Altogether,
he is a successful student and a good chap.
The Radio expert of the electrical class and one
of the chief organizers of the Radio Club. His
nocturnal habits have always been an unsolved mystery to his fellow students. He is one of the veterans of the Varsity Senior Soccer Club, and one of its
best supporters. Earned the unqualified admiration
of the other electricals by developing the art of
sleeping throughout lectures and producing complete
notes at the end of the hour. One of the chief
gloom banishers of the "Light Brigade."

Hails from the "Land of the Five Rivers," where
he matriculated. Was originally a member of Sc. *28,
but got left on the way, while busy making both
ends meet. Is a product of the meeting of East and
West, and has respect for both. Greatest weakness
is being sociable with everybody. Is a great grass-
hockey enthusiast and has had many a shock trying
to be a good tumbler and diver. His foremost ambition is to go back and dam the Brahmaputra.
An original member of Science '31, Milt came
to us from Vancouver Tech. He is one of the radio
enthusiasts of the Electrical class and bids fair to
become a prominent radio engineer, as he appears to
have one of the best radio sets in Vancouver. He
shows a keen interest in all University activities and
his sense of humour makes him popular with his
classmates. His favourite expression is, "Come on
fellows—let's   go   home,"
Back in Fairview days, before injuring his leg,
Charlie played ball with the best of them in first
string basketball, English and Canadian rugby. Then,
after a three-year rest he came back with Forestry

Men's Athletics, showing exceptional energy and
ability in this office. We often wonder where the
fire is when Charlie blows by or misses three lectures
in a row, but results are always forthcoming. Pep
and the brains to guide it are a hard combination to
He is one of the Miners, and has gathered his
knowledge of mining from such mines as Premier
and Britannia; that is, in addition to what he has
collected at this University. Norm is known to
many by his practical jokes—sneezing powder and
rubber chocolates being included in his bag of tricks.
He has never been seen to work. The nearest he
came to it was when he joined the Outdoors Club
in his final year, but he has always managed to put
the load on someone else's shoulders.
Irving entered the University with Arts '30, and
being an engineer at heart transferred his allegiance

A hero, known to everybody on the campus as
"Sandy," hails from Victoria as a graduate of Victoria College. Since coming to Varsity Sandy has
taken a very active part in athletics. Big-Four
Canadian Rugby for four years (captain last year),
ice hockey two years, vice-president Big Block Club,
Awards Committee and class executives have not
prevented him from accomplishing a double course.
Sandy is graduating in Mining this year.
After two years at Victoria College, Lome took
up the battle with the Engineers of '31, choosing
Forestry in his final years. He will graduate with a
double degree, having paused to collect a B.A. in
1930. During his first year, he played Canadian
rugby. Since then he has been a member of the
Science '31 relay team and of the Musical Society.
He is an active member of the Forest Club and vice-
president of the E.I.C. student section.
Stew comes from Rossland, B.C., and is naturally interested in mining. He started with Science
'28 and was president of his class in his second year.
Stew started in Civil Engineering but then decided
he liked Mining better and changed his course. He
was president of the Science Men's Undergraduate
Society in 1928; on the Science '28 Relay team, and
is now vice-president of Science '31. For about
eight summers Stew worked for the Consolidated
Mining Company, doing exploration work for the
last two summers.
"Micky" is a rare chap, who consistently makes
first-class honours and at the same time manages to
keep a normal size of hat band. For the past four
years he has been an outstanding figure in the organization of the various official Science functions, and
also of those little parties which, though unofficial,
are none the less pleasant. At the present time he

One of the hated militarists! Bill started the
fracas in 1927 which culminated with the re-establishment of the C.O.T.C. To atone for this crime,
he has been spending his summers travelling to
Camp Borden to bring back all major athletic
trophies. When not otherwise occupied, Bill spends
his time collecting stories for all occasions. These,
coupled with his persuasive ability, will no doubt
enable him to attain his future ambitions.
A double course man in Mechanical Engineering.
Although he has paused among the more classical
studies, he still thinks the steam boiler is the foundation of civilization. Dalt has been three years
secretary-treasurer of the Outdoors Club and is very
much interested in hiking and skiing. He spends his
week-ends running up and down Grouse Mountain
as evidence of his enthusiasm. One of the Mechanical Department blueprint artists—believes in quantity production.
Easy-going and friendly. Lets nothing worry
him—not even Electrical supps. Charley is in the
mechanical line. If it works—"Well, that's fine,"
otherwise—"That's too bad, wonder what's the matter." He has taken quite an active part outside of
classes, playing first string soccer for three years
with a little tennis on the side.

SCIENCE '33 is still the same well-organized and united Class that it
was last year. As examples of this we have lost only one Interclass
Soccer game, have won most of our Interclass Basketball games, have
raised seventy-eight per cent, of our Stadium fund quota and came
fourth in the Arts '20 Relay Race.
Amongst us there are several prominent athletes: Dick Moore, who
has just completed his second season of "Big Four" Rugby; Laurie Nicholson, forward on the Senior "A" Basketball team; Teddy Barbour, an
outstanding player on the Senior "B" team; Henry Richmond, captain of
one of the Men's Grass Hockey teams and Vic Rogers who has been
playing MacKechnie Cup Rugby for his second year.
Much enthusiasm is shown by the Class towards athletics and every
Friday morning between ten and eleven o'clock, thirty per cent, of
the fellows may be found in the gymnasium. It is this same keenness for
sport which caused the unbelievable number of thirteen men to turn
out for a place on the Arts '20 Relay.

ITH the commencement of the second term the Class of Science
'34 found itself relatively intact as compared to former years, only
nineteen having got their baccalaureate at Christmas.
The Class easily upheld the reputation of all second year Science
classes, working hard on the stadium campaign, being sponsors of one
of the best dances the University ever held, and staging a highly successful Class Party.
In athletics the Class had Gaul and Ledingham on the McKechnie
Cup team, and Hall, Tyerman, Bolton and McGuire on the Canadian
Big Four team. To date the Soccer team has won three out of their four
games and the Basketball team two out of their four games and are still
in the running for both cups.
In conformity with the usual practice of Science classes, red sweaters,
as emblematic of the engineering profession, were adopted.
The executive includes: Honorary President, Mr. H. G. Smith;

Marion   is  one  of  our   most  energetic   workers
and can always be depended upon for original ideas
for  class parties.     As class  representative she was  a
very active member of the Hospital Students' Council.
"The Law of Kindness is upon her tongue."
Better known as Heggie, or H. H.—most conveniently initialed—is a most delightful person, ever
bubbling with good spirits. Vivacious in personality,
she possesses a keen sense of humour and reaps joy
where sorrow was intended. An enthusiastic skater,
especially on thin ice, but just watch her come up
starry eyed and exuberant. An authority on what
one would do with an umbrella on the golf course;
not to speak of her executive ability.
Gerry came to us from Kamloops adding to our
class the charm of her personality—intangible, vivacious, but yet reserved. With her demure, sweet
expression, Gerry is always doing the unexpected, a
constant source of pleasure and surprise. Beneath
her outward calm Gerry conceals a strong, true
character which she showed as our energetic hospital
rep. Spends spare time on the badminton court,
links and walking with "Foggie." Daily expression—
"I wonder if there will be five more letters today."
"Yon chatter, chatter as yon go,
Both at your work and after;
Your bubbling spirits will o'erflow,
With gay and merry laughter."
Heather  received  her B.A.   in   1928.     Unfailing
good nature has made her a popular member of Nursing.    She refuses to let such little things as examinations worry her and has made a splendid average all
through college.    Our go-getter was secretary of the
class and later president of the Students' Council of
the Vancouver General Hospital.
"E'en though vanquished she could argue still."
Dorothy is one of the most popular students of
any year since Nursing was started at U.B.C. Even
the professors have to return her genial smile and
ask her to "come earlier." There has never been a
more capable president of the Nurses' Undergraduate
Society or of her class. Also she was the efficient
secretary of the Students' Council at V. G. H.
Dorothy is a good sport at all times. She radiates
pep, and her smile and wonderful dispostion pave
the way to every heart.
It is so hard to put into words those qualities
that endear Margie to us. Her essential sweetness
has made her our standby time and again. Her
interest in athletics placed her on the Nursing Executive in her second year with us, and since then she has
maintained that interest in badminton, tennis, and
riding, to the enjoyment of all who play with her.
In her fourth year she was an energetic vice-president
of the Nursing Undergraduate Society.

touches. In the last five years, Fyvie has demonstrated many attributes which have proved her to be
the most outstanding member of our class. Besides
being an excellent nurse, she has collected an enviable
scholastic reputation, winning the University Scholarship for General Proficiency, and the Vancouver
Women's Canadian Club Scholarship.

THE Indians had medicine-men to cure their ills and charm
their devils away when the need arose. A developing civilization has made changes in the original fakir—to produce
eventually the modern doctor and nurse. They are the fount
of wisdom that has taken the place of the near-god to whom
wailing papooses were taken, to whom striplings, hurt in sport
and warriors, wounded in war, turned.
There are more people in America today than there ever
were Indians, and there is a greater need for nurses. As that
demand has increased, so the Nursing course at U.B.C. has
grown to attain a record enrolment this year.
All years from first to fifth have co-operated splendidly
during this 1930-31 session, and we have all formed some lasting
friendships. High Jinks and Home-Coming proved that Nursing could make itself known; and we have been proud of our
representation in the Musical Society, and of our Relay team in
the Track Meet—it was there even if it did come last!
The fifth year group have seen much of Vancouver during
their perambulations and are able to discuss at length many
governmental institutions besides the one they are attending.
There have been the usual class functions, the most outstanding being the Fall Tea, held at Alison Reid's, and the
Dance in February, generously given by Mrs. R. W. Brock.
The Senior class was augmented this year by eleven postgraduate students, with whom relationships have been interesting and most enjoyable.
Miss Hillas—Are primary rocks stratified?
Dr. Peacock—What a blow! I always thought Nurses
were a moderately intelligent group.

Dr. Clement was appointed Professor of Horticulture in the University of British
Columbia in September, 1916, and became Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture in
August, 1919. For a number of years before his appointment to the University of
British Columbia he was Director of the Horticultural Experiment Station at Vineland,
Ontario, in the Niagara Peninsula. T1IE TOTEIVfc;^^f

Bert signed up with the Aggie Freshmen in
1927, and after a year's probation decided that he
had the makings of a first-class poultry expert. He
was a member of the Badminton Club, and for the
last year has been vice-president of Aggie '31. We
can always count on Bert as an enthusiastic supporter of social  functions.
Rolphe came to Agriculture from Columbian
College. His aim in life is to own a championship
herd of Jersey cattle. He is no mean judge of cows,
as he was on the team that represented the U.B.C.
at Portland last term. However cow-judging has not
taken up all his energy. Rolfe has found time to
play on the Intermediate English Rugby team and
was a member of the Aggie Relay team last year.
He is also a member of the Players' Club.
Norm, one of the most quiet and reserved boys
on the campus, is really an Aggie. He played English rugby in the first and second years, but since
than has been too occupied with various experiments
in the manufacture of butter and cheese to give
much thought to athletics. In his last year he was
a member of the Dairy Products team at the Pacific
International, and was also the president of the Class
of Agriculture  '31.
Tommy has been one of the most active members of the Class of '31. President of Aggie '31 for
first three years, vice-president of the Agricultural
Undergrad., president of the Agricultural Discussion
Club in his fourth year, and member of the Dairy
Products team at the Pacific International Exhibition.
His chief interest lies in watching calves succumb
to the effects of pilchard oil.
Mike was born in China and came to B.C. in
1927. In his Freshman year he won the David Thorn
Scholarship for Proficiency. Poultry, genetics and
biometry have claimed his special attention, both in
course work and in research for the Poultry Department. He served as treasurer of the Agriculture
Undergraduate Society and was twice on the winning
team in Agriculture Inter-class Debates. Next year,
we hope to have him back again taking further research work.
[ 92   J 2^
Tom was born in England, where he stayed long
enough to see military service, so that now he is
one of the few returned men at Varsity. He started
with the Class of '29, but stayed out to join the
Aggies of 1931. Besides his academic work, in
which he can boast of three scholarships, he finds
time for membership in the Musical Society, Der
Deutsche Verein, Outdoors Club, Biological Discussion Club, S.C.M. and Aggie Discussion Club. Tom
specializes in Plant breeding and Pathology. After
graduation he will take up Research work.
Charlie came to Varsity from Kamloops to join
us in our second year. Spending many hours in
lectures and laboratories, he has taken his major
work in scientific Horticulture. He has been very
active in the Badminton Club, handling the finances
for the last two years. Serving also on the Agriculture Undergraduate Executive, he has guided us
through a most successful year in his office of
treasurer. Charlie distinguished himself by winning
the cup for sheep at the Agassiz Judging Competition
in 1929.
Ruth received her high school training in Kel-
owna, where she acquired many illusions about
agriculture. After joining the Aggies, however, she
was attracted by Bacteriology, and is writing her
thesis on that subject. She has been associated with
both class and undergraduate executive work each
year. She is a member of the Biological Discussion
Club, and has contributed anonymously to the
"Ubyssey" from time to time. She hopes to continue   her   studies   in   Bacteriology   after   graduation.

A mystery by night."
Wilf came to college in 1927 and since that time
has taken an active part in college life. He was
secretary of his class for two years, gave his best

Dairy Judging team at Portland in '30. Wilf is

After working for three years in the automobile
business, Mills decided to come to Varsity and
specialize in Agricultural Economics. On the campus
his organizing abilities have been shown in numerous
activities, including participation in the affairs of the

Debating. After leaving the University, Mills intends to put his knowledge of economics to practical
use in the financial world.

"Toly" came to Canada in 1926 with the ostensible objects of improving his English and studying Canadian methods in Agriculture. After looking
over all the courses in the Calendar he finally decided
to major in Agricultural Economics. His cheerful
manner and his enthusiasm for campus affairs have
made him many friends in University circles, and
his cheery, "Hello fellows," is a well-known greeting. His adventurous nature and perseverance will
undoubtedly lead him to success in the future.
The Class History of Agriculture 31
THE Class of Agriculture '31 entered University with very promising
prospects for four successful years. We had the good fortune to be
in our first year one of the largest classes ever entered in this faculty and
"got off to a good start" by finishing up the first year of our existence
with the highest marks ever obtained by any Freshman Agriculture class.
In the following three years we more or less maintained the high
standard set in our first year, in spite of additional units, more difficult
courses and other added attractions.
The Class as a whole has always taken an active part in campus
activities and has been represented throughout in various prominent
positions on the Agriculture Undergraduate Society. Mills Winram
has been well-known in debating circles; Anatole Zaitzeff has been a
popular member of the Players' Club; and Tom Leach, besides poisoning
calves with synthetic milk, has been a leading figure in the Aggie Discussion Club and on the Agriculture Undergraduate Executive. Last,
but not least, the Class claims the distinction of having as one of its
members, Ruth Stuart, the only co-ed in the faculty.
Directing the destinies of the Class for this year were: Honorary
President, Professor Wilfred Sadler; President, Norman Ingledew; Vice-
President, Bert Ellis; Secretary, Wilf Tait.
Agriculture 32
ENTIRELY fooling the originators of Christmas examinations, Aggie
'32 is off to a good start and pulling steadily at the traces. Several
new men have realized the potentialities of the Class, and have joined us;
one of these men was previously in Arts, but he appreciated the added,
value of an Agricultural degree, and switched over.
We can show a wide range of interests, having men majoring in
Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Poultry, Agricultural Economics and
Zoology, and we have representatives in the Outdoors Club, Biological
Discussion Club, Forest Club, and of course we are all in the Aggie Club.
This year's class executive consists of: Honorary President, Professor
H. M. King; President, Henry A. Shaw; Secretary-Treasurer, Hugh B.
Agriculture 33
A GGIE '33 has just completed its second year with an enrolment of
•*"-*■ thirteen members. The Class supplied two of the men, Dick and
Lee, who gave the Frosh a scare in the Arts '20 Relay, and did its part
toward the success of the Aggie Ball.
Osborne and Whimster carry the honours of Aggie '33 up Grouse
Mountain with the Outdoors Club, to dash that honour into the snow at
unexpected moments while negotiating on skiis. Tedenoff has made
Agriculture famous by his signs and posters, which, without doubt, are
works of art, and outshine any similar work done on the campus for some
time. Whimster has blossomed forth as an orator and represented Varsity in the Intercollegiate Debate this year. He also keeps the Players'
Club moving smoothly by playing the part of chief scene shifter and
stage manager.
The Aggie Basketball and Football teams have all been graced by
representatives of Aggie '33, Dave Ferguson taking a leading part. Judging from past records, the Class is going to produce some versatile farmers.
Aggie '33 can also boast control of Canadian Football for 1931-32,
Harold Cliff having been elected captain of the team.
This year's Executive is: President, William Whimster; Vice-President, Harold Phillips; Secretary-Treasurer, James O'Neil.

HE of Aggie '34 have a very brilliant outlook before us. The initiation started the year off with a hair-cut for us. Then the mid-terms
satisfied their sanguinary aspirations by first bowling us over and then
by further pushing us in the face through the medium of the various
professors' physiognomies—more specifically the ventral portion of that
mammal's face.
Nevertheless, at Christmas we all passed safely through; one of the
more brilliant of us, Fred Salisbury by name, receiving a bursary for his
good work. Another outstanding member of our Class is Harry Adison
who made the Swimming team of the University, showing up the lower
mainland swimmers. Our worthy president is also an outstanding player
on the Senior "B" Basketball team. We did our bit in supplying a
Soccer team for the Inter-class Soccer competition, having three or four
members of our Class battling for good old Aggie. In the Arts '20
Relay two of the team were full-fledged '34-ites and another two were
Occupationals who make up a part of our Class. Jack Dicks, an
Occupational, distinguished himself both in the Relay and also in the

The desert in which the College stands, having been reclaimed from a
woody wilderness, is already beginning to blossom like the rose. Trees,
shrubs and hedges increase in number from year to year. Some day we
hope to appear fully clothed and not quite so stark and bare as at present.
The College opened the year well with a Tea to the Anglicans of the
Faculty and of the First and Second Years. This was the beginning of
many and varied activities, for we have taken part in soccer, track,
grass-hockey, Gym Club and the Musical Society. At the annual Field
Day, R. C. W. Ward won the Athletic Championship. This was perhaps due to his light-footed practices up and down Trumpour Trottoir
in the small hours. And as a Finale to the social events of the year we
had an "At Home" in February, attended by about one hundred guests.
G. H. Cockburn, M. C. Humphrey and D. B. Houghton held a little

Owen was born in Kelowna and has lived in
various parts of Western Canada from Kenora to
Prince Rupert. In 1929 he was captain of the
U.B.C. Grass Hockey team and in 1930 a member
of the Varsity team. He plays 'back' in college football, is a member of the Track team and an all
round sport. He has served as a Lay Reader in the
Yukon, is a motor expert and a builder, has lots of
pep, and  holds definite opinions.
Eric Jackson was born in Cheshire, England,
but came to Canada when quite young. He graduated in Arts at U.B.C. in 1924 and went to India,
serving four years as a teacher in Agra and one as
Principal of Jay Narayan's High School, in Benares.
In 1930 he was winner of the Oratorical Contest
and during the summer served as a Lay Reader in
the Yukon. President of the Literary and Athletic
Association, 1930-31, a valuable member of the
Varsity Grass Hockey and College Football teams,

Kimura is a graduate of St. Paul's University,
Tokio, and already has two books to his credit. He
came to us two years ago (it seems only two weeks)
and now walks off with a Licentiate of Theology,
a mere step to a D.D. for this true student. This
brother from across the Pacific in his quiet way
has added much to our life, being always present at
any activity from a social function to the wildest

Kinley was born in County Down, Ireland, and
is proud of it. He came to Canada in 1912, enlisted
for the Great War and returned in 1919 with a
Military Medal, having served in France and Salonica.
Kinley taught for six years in the Indian School at
Kitwanga. He is a member of the College Track
team and Football Club and is respected by the
faculty and fellow-students for his sterling qualities.
Kinley intends to return to the Diocese of Caledonia.
Lee, alias Lee Lin-Tchung, is a native of Canton
who paid the Student Head Tax and wonders why.
He has been mechanic, caterer, mirchant, Con-
fucianist and is now a Christian. Lee is a member
of the staff of the Anglican Chinese Missions both
in Victoria and in Vancouver. He is assistant Sacristan in the College where he has won the respect of
the Anglo-Saxons while retaining that of the Chinese. He leaves us to join the permanent staff of the
Anglican Mission to Chinese.

Diocese of Caledonia. He is a member of the College Football team and is an invaluable 'outside right.'
But Parsons does not advertise ... To know him is

Purves came from Cleadon South Shields. He
was educated at Westoe and Durham and taught
public school for two years in England before coming to Canada three years ago. He holds positions
in the College as vice-president of the Literary Athletic Association, president of the Chess Club, and
a member of the Soccer team. His love of an argument and his appreciation of a good rag have made
him many friends.
Scott hails from Newcastle-on-Tyne, and cam';
to Canada three years ago. He had intended to
enter the legal profession but, realizing his mistake,
he decided on the ministry. Captain of the A.T.C.
Soccer team, and tennis champion, as well as being
an adept at badminton, Scott shows himself pro*
ficient in athletics. He has left his mark upon the
College by his decided views and it is with regret
that we see him go.
Storey is a native of Aberdeen but soon moved
to England. He went overseas in 1914 and came
out to Canada after the war. He was appointed
licensed Lay Reader in Alberta, in 1927. On coming
to the College he was made player-coach to the
Soccer team, which position he now holds as well as
vice-president of Literary and Athletic Association
and First Aid Officer. Storey was a pugilist in his
younger days but, nevertheless, he is slow to anger
and will win  respect wherever he goes.

A full programme of social functions has kept the committee of the
Students' Council busy. Following the Initiation Week there was the
Frosh Reception and Dance. Other events equally enjoyable and well
attended were the Hallowe'en Masquerade, the Parents' Reception and
the Closing Dance. The College Ball was held on January 3, and five
hundred guests were present. The proceeds helped to swell the Vancouver Invasion Fund.
Several new sports have been instituted. The Badminton Club has
a large membership and has played several matches with the Normal
School. The Club, with the newly organized Swimming Club, will
probably find places on the Invasion Programme next year. The Women's Grass Hockey team is an enthusiastic group and hopes to make
a good showing against Varsity. The Women's Basketball team has not
entered a league but has played many games with outside clubs. The
major sports have a large following. The Rugby team, Provincial and
City Intermediate Champions, has met with its usual success in the
City League and hopes to retain both the Province and the Heyland
Cups this year. The Men's Basketball team, although not in a league,
has made a good showing in the many fixtures they have played.

The Students' Council
A T about 5:45 on a Wednesday afternoon, nine black-gowned Council
-^"-™- Members might be seen strolling languidly up the staircase which
leads from the Cafeteria to the Council Chambers. The impressiveness
of the spectacle, however, is somewhat marred by the sight of dishes of
olives, and plates heaped high with assorted cakes which are carried with
solicitous care. For appetites are renewed as the meeting progresses and
the light refreshments invariably mysteriously disappear. Then for five
or six hours, if not longer, we are beseiged by minutes, reports, bills, and
budgets without end.
We would all be inclined to grudge the time spent in dull routine
business were it not for the occasions when we accomplish something
which we, in our innocence, consider really worth while. Already this
year the questions of the A.M.S. Constitution, fraternities, finance, social
functions, and the Victoria Invasion have been revived and vigorously
re-discussed—efforts which on numerous occasions have been the butt of
heartrending (??) RAP'S on the part of certain sections of the student
But the summit of our achievement this year promises to be the
Stadium project. Stimulated in the first place by our President of Men's
Athletics, the plan, in spite of many obstacles and discouraging occurrences, has gradually materialized, and is at present in full swing. Everything augurs success for our $20,000.00 campaign—providing the students themselves do their bit.
But enough for "business"—it may all be found in the minutes
which, as someone recently remarked, are exceedingly incomplete accounts of what actually goes on within the Council walls on Wednesday
evenings. No mention of the brighter side of the meetings finds its way
there, or of the wide diversity of opinions which not infrequently led to
open "warfare." No hints as to the surprising behaviour of certain
members; no allusion to the uproar when Schultz had to stand on the
table to obtain a hearing, when Jean's purse was opened, or when Campbell woke up and asked—a la student body—"what am I voting for?"
Nor is there any written account of the night when, much to the girls'
amazement and according to the boys' preconceived plot, the meeting
adjourned at 7:45 p.m. and was resumed half an hour later at the Empress
Theatre, and finally concluding at Purdy's.
In spite of certain criticism, long tiresome meetings, and 9 o'clock
Thursday lectures, we all find, as the year comes to a close, that our confidence in and affection for our University has increased tenfold, as has
also our desire to fight for its advancement. We will remember our
meetings not less vividly, however, for the extreme hilarity stimulated
by the good-natured teasing of certain members, and for those congenial

HPHE Men's Undergraduate Executive for 1930-31 brings to a close
-™- another successful year in carrying out its duties of controlling all
class and faculty social activities, with the exception of those held by
the Senior Classes.
The most important of the year's social functions were the three
faculty balls, all of which were held in the Ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver and all of which were successful in every way. The Arts was held
in the Fall term and had the distinction of being "the Ball" of that
season. The Aggies again proved their worth by the quality of their
chicken sandwiches. The Sciencemen in particular outdid themselves in
their efforts this year, and are to be commended on a number of their
curious innovations.
Each of the various classes held one party each; the classes of Science
'31, '32 and '33, and the classes of Agriculture giving combined parties.
These were as is customary marked by an interesting variety of dress and
entertainment. In particular was the basket social held by Arts '32 an
interesting novelty.
The classes of Arts '32, '33 and '34, each entertained at a tea dance,
these functions taking place on Saturday afternoon following important

friendly people whom we have come to know and appreciate as friends
and fellow-councillors.    Here we are—in case you don't know us all.
We have been unable to determine whether the fair sex of this
institution are especially equipped with discretion in the selection of
their President, or whether Lady Fortune has been especially kind to
them— and us. Certain it is that this year's President has lived up to
the exceptionally high standard which this position always reflects. Professors tell us not to look for many outstanding qualities in one person,
but in Jean we have found tact, charm, a keen appreciation of humour,
and above all, a loyalty which transcends the activities of the Women's
Undergraduate Society. In her free minutes, during Council meetings,
we are sorry to say, she is kept busy placating and keeping in order the
Presidents of the Men's Undergrad. on her right and of Men's Athletics
on her left.
Betty came to us from the "Chair" of the Players' Club and there
were a few of us who thought that she would have acquired a little of
the aloofness of that august body. But, in her own quiet (?) way, our
President of Women's Athletics soon exploded such mistaken ideas. She
has proved herself to be exceedingly fair in her judgments and though
naturally "strong" for athletics, she has shown an interest in other
activities which should put many of us to shame. Players' Club or no
Players' Club, the Musical Society could not have a better friend. But
it is Betty's laugh—the most infectious one on Council—that has so
often caused the meeting to dissolve itself, so to speak, in uncontrollable
We are tempted to write "efficient" whenever we think of Margaret,
but when we look at the word we realize that it conveys in a very poor
way indeed all that Margaret has been on the Council. The word has also
a flavour of coldness about it which in no way reflects the graciousness
and good cheer that are always in evidence around the minute book.
Many times, when stumped for the wording of a difficult phrase, we'd
hear the Junior Member exclaim, "Oh, why waste time! Give it to

most important of all we have in the Secretary one who can handle—
when all others fail—our untamed "spirit"—McSchultz.
But it is our President who has set an example which not one of us
can boast of equalling. The manner in which he has sacrificed everything in order that he might put all his energy into Council work is
known only to a few. Broadminded, conscientious, and thoughtful,
Don furthers with energy and determination any move which is definitely
for the good of the University and, at the same time, is firm in his

refusal to countenance any careless proposal or irregular procedure. His
keen insight and ability to grasp the essential facts of a matter, his
enthusiasm for the way "they do it in Edinburgh," his sense of humour
and cheerful smile are always in evidence. We speak for the whole
University when we say how much we appreciate all that Don has done
for the U.B.C. and heartily wish him an abundance of good fortune when
he returns to the "Old Country" next year.
Charlie is the "Hotspur" of Council. Enthusiastic loyalty to athletics, limitless energy and optimism—these are his outstanding traits.
Difficulties in anything seem merely to inspire him to overcome them

What with the Discipline and numerous other committees on which
the President of Men's Undergrad. has had to work recently, Alan has
had his full share of Council responsibility since he was elected last
October on the resignation of Doug. Pollock. His faculty for clear
thinking, his ability to co-operate, and above all, his fair, unprejudiced
attitude, have gained the respect of those with whom he has worked.
Alan's experience at McGill last year has often been a source of interesting comparison and contrast of methods and conditions here and in the
East. True, he has occasionally been a trifle absent-minded of late, but—
well, spring is in the air already . . .
The President of the L.S.E. seems to get all the knotty little matters
to attend to. His duties are perhaps the most varied of any other Councillor. But the statement that he "has good ideas" contains more truth
than fiction, and he is quite able to cope tactfully and diplomatically
with any "ticklish" situation which might arise. He may always be
depended on to express a sound judgment on any problem. Outwardly
quiet, unassuming and composed, even Frank was once upset to such an
extent that he threatened to eject the President of the Men's Undergrad.
from the meeting by way of the window!
We were all sorry to lose our Treasurer last term, when he was
forced to resign because of ill-health. Bob's refusal to take things too
seriously was often a helpful element in Council. A bright remark or
witticism from the Treasurer cleared a tense atmosphere on more than
one occasion, and made us all feel much better.
Jack Thompson has been recently elected to fill the office of Treasurer for the remainder of the session. We don't know much about him
but from many good reports are sure he will overcome the difficulties
which inevitably belong to this position.   Good luck to you, Jack.

The Junior Member is contemptuous of the menial tasks which
tradition proclaims to be his. The Secretary, however, helps to keep
him out of mischief by sending him on various errands and does her
best to keep him awake when he becomes drowsy. "Dutch" is the proud
"possessor" of a whole class and, according to him, Arts '34 is the absolute
paragon of classes. He's O.K. though, and is to be congratulated on his
able and efficient handling of Home-Coming Theatre Night. Whether
intentional or no, a spontaneous witticism from this Junior Member has

[ERELY the task of preparing a bi-weekly newspaper, an annual
and a handbook is all that occupies the time and talent of the
"Pub." Over forty students devote their energy to this rather thankless occupation and find that both studies and pleasures have to be
sacrificed on the altar of journalism. For recompense, there is the satisfaction of a job well done and the camaraderie of the fourth estate.
High spots in the "Pub's" past year are many. The "Ubyssey" has
entered upon a new stage in its career, having been expanded to six
columns per page instead of its former five, with a column length of
eighteen inches. A special sport page made its appearance in the second
term. A wholesale emigration of the staff to the "Sun" office for one
day resulted in an edition of that worthy daily which will be long
remembered by local journalists. The installation of a counter in the
"Pub" added a business-like appearance to the sanctum of the scribes.
Editorial policy was consistent and direct. The C.O.T.C. and the
existence of military training in universities were denounced in several
editorials. Fraternities were dealt with critically. The stadium project was heartily supported through all its vicissitudes. A plea for
greater consideration in the matter of term essays brought a sympathetic
response from some professors. Timely comment was made on current
campus affairs.
The editor-in-chief, Ronald Grantham, pensive patriarch of the
"Pub," was appointed to that position after rising from reporter to the
rank of associate and literary editor. His spare time, if an editor can
be said to have such a thing, is spent either in the chief's chair, brooding
over editorials, or in efforts to improve the deportment of his unruly
staff. Easy-going in minor matters, his word is law where high policy
is concerned. He will be known to posterity as the first editor to believe
in being kind to Council.
Bessie Robertson and Edgar Brown, as senior editors, each has charge
of an edition of the paper. Bessie Robertson adopts humanitarian tactics
for the preparation of the Tuesday issue. "Co-operation with conversation" is the motto of this section of the staff, and the result is exactly the
same as that of the other edition which prides itself on business-like
efficiency. A simple request on her part usually gets more results than
thunders from mere male editors.
Edgar Brown, the chief's right-hand man, has a penchant for radical
changes in the "Pub's" policy and organization. He and the editor are
often seen together hatching plots and perhaps editorials, or bating the
sports editor.   While superintending the "make-up" of the Friday issue,

THE "Totem" staff, secreted in its basement retreat, "far from the
madding crowd," has remained in the ambush of anonymity except
for occasional desperate forays in quest of late write-ups and photos.
Doris Barton, editor, has preserved a cheerful equanimity and a
willingness to conquer further editorial fields in spite of dealings with
a Students' Council afflicted with "financial stringency," and with an
apparently vapid and hopelessly sentimental senior class.
Upon Rosemary Winslow, efficient and hard working, fell the brunt
of correcting enigmatic and futile write-ups and assisting the Editor at
all times.   Much of the credit for the finished product is due to her.
Isabel Bescoby, despite harassing duties and distractions maintained
an outward calm during crises and was a tower of strength throughout.
The sport department has been in charge of Marion Sangster whose
breezy humour and aggressive tactics have smoothed out many difficulties between rival athletic clubs warring for "space."
Marion Hamilton valiantly tried to live down a reputation for
shyness but finally accepted defeat when she failed to muster courage to
approach the Editor-in-Chief for his late write-up.

1II \HE business depression has not hindered another successful year for
-"- the business management of the Publications Board. In fact everything shows symptoms of an extremely good year—even the budget.
John Fox, the efficient Business Manager, has never been known to
lose his poise even when harrassed on one side by strong-minded editors,
and threatened on the other side by thrifty councillors. At all times he
has carried on his work serenely oblivious of minor disturbances, maintaining a cheerful calm above all journalistic storms.
Jack Turvey, Advertising Manager, has been invaluable in "scaring
up" timid advertisers. His big worry, however, has been the inevitable
dummy. Ably assisting Jack, and showing much promise of future
success, are Alexander Kennedy and Albert Lake.
Reginald Price, aided by Albert Lake, has been an efficient Circulation Manager. They have kept the paper moving and appeased annoyed
subscribers most successfully.
Colin Cole and Millard Alexander have carried on ably the apparently insignificant but highly important job of "copy chasing."
[123] THE TOTEM^r^
The Publications Board
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Twenty-one)
Edgar assumes a manner of brutal frankness that makes his assistants
realize that college journalism is no joke.
Himie Koshevoy, the insouciant and dapper news manager, shepherds a large flock of respectful reporters. He has his finger on the pulse
of university life and never misses a heart-throb. Instruction of cub
reporters forms a second part of his job. How many future eminent
journalists have received their training from Himie will never be known.
The sports editor, Malcolm McGregor, is rumoured to be a soccer
fan. A man of many talents, he fills his writings with vocabulary of
journalism that pains the editor-in-chief, writes theses during "Pub"
meetings, eats his lunch at 10 a.m. or earlier, loudly defends the rights of
the sport page or the Soccer Club and assumes statuesque contortions
meant to symbolize adoration when speaking to lady editors.
Frances Lucas, with M. Freeman as assistant, is in charge of literary
supplements and other outbreaks of the muse. Her relaxation from
serious duty takes the form of writing a chamelionic column known as
"Fun and Fundamentals." In conjunction with the Letters Club, the
literary staff published a chapbook of student verse, the first to appear
since 1922.
Bunny Pound, feature editor, has the difficult task of examining
efforts of campus humourists. Under her supervision Muck-a-muck
still continues to be the most popular part of the paper.
Associate editors are four in number. Nick Mussallem reformed
and resigned from the "Pub" after Christmas, though still haunting the
office between lectures. An adept writer of incisive head-lines, he is
never content until he finds the precise word needed. Kay Murray is a
quiet and efficient worker, forming a contrast to other argumentative
members. Afflicted with the additional duties of exchange editor, she
keeps the students in touch with universities throughout the continent.
Margaret Creelman is another hard worker on the Tuesday edition,
with head writing and proof-reading as her chief bane. Mairi Dingwall
is second in command for the Friday issue, and has stepped into big-time
stuff with the special Arts '32 Stadium Supplement.
Five assistant editors, Mollie Jordan, R. Harcourt, Art McKenzie,
Cecilia Long and Cecil Brennan, have worked hard at the print-shop
gaining experience for higher positions next year. Cecilia Long relieved
the exchange editor in the second term.

The Literary and Scientific Executive
THE Literary and Scientific Executive, whose function it is to act
as intermediary between the Students' Council and the various clubs
on the campus, has devoted most of its time this year to furthering the
interests of the Musical Society, the Players' Club and the Debating
Union, the three major organizations, represented by their presidents,
on this Executive.
The Executive presented to the student body a series of noon-hour
lectures, featuring visitors and others of note in the City, including
Professor Micklem, who gave an address and acted as critic at a debate
sponsored by the Debating Union; Miss Hemminway-Jones, who gave
us an insight into student life in Latin-America; Professor H. F. Angus,
who spoke on the Pan-Pacific Conference and its problems, and Mr.
Under the auspices of this Executive, Kenneth Ross, assisted by
Miss Marion Capp, contralto, and several of his pupils, presented a
recital, the proceeds of which went to the Stadium Fund.
The Mathematics Club
THE University Session, 1930-31, witnessed the re-organization of the
Mathematics Club from an open to a closed society limited to twenty-
five members. This move has proved highly beneficial judging by the
increased interest shown by all concerned. The prime motive of the
Club is to widen the knowledge of the subject to the student by the
presentation and discussion of papers on extra-curricular topics.
In spite of Mr. Bertrand Russell's assertion that in Mathematics we
never know what we are talking about, the speakers this year have
presented their papers in a capable and highly interesting manner. The
following are included: Dr. F. S. Nowlan, "The Meaning of Mathematics;" Mr. F. Brand, "The Development of Rigour in Analysis;" Mr.
Cuthbert Webber, "Squaring the Circle;" Miss Jean Fisher, "Through
Algebraic Number Fields;" Mr. D. Murdoch, "History of Japanese
Mathematics;" Mr. B. Poole, "Primitive Idempotent Elements of a Total
The executive for the year consisted of: Honorary President, Dr.
Buchanan; Honorary Vice-Presidents, Dr. Nowlan, Mr. Richardson, Mr.
F. Brand; President, Nelson Allen; Vice-President, Frank Waites; Secretary, Margaret Allan.
I 127] Chemistry Society
HPHE Chemistry Society is one of the oldest student organizations on
-*- the campus, dating back to 1916. Originally formed for the purpose of arousing interest in topics of a general scientific nature, it has,
since the advent of clubs in other sciences, devoted its attention exclusively to chemistry.
Continuing the tradition of the past, "closed" and "open" meetings
were held alternately every two weeks, the former being restricted to
those taking higher chemistry courses, while anyone interested was
welcomed at the latter.
The first open meeting took the form of a historical competition
on the naming of famous chemists, under the direction of Dr. R. H.
Clark. Other meetings were addressed by Mr. Rees on "Gasoline—Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow;" Dr. Ure on "The Chemistry of Photography;" and Dr. Archibald on "Vanadium." At the closed meetings,
papers were read by the members on widely different phases of chemistry,
refreshments were served and the evenings concluded with music.
The Society was unfortunate in losing its president, Mr. Desmond
Beall, through illness early in the session. The executive for the remainder
of the year consisted of: Honorary President, Dr. Archibald; President,
Jack Young; Vice-President, Dorothy Bruce; Secretary, Lyle Swain;
Treasurer, Don MacLaurin.
The Chess Club
THE Chess Club, although lacking some of its best players, has nevertheless had a busy and successful year. New equipment, including
sets, magazines, a chest and tables, has been secured and the club-room in
the Gym is now completely furnished.
Great enthusiasm has been shown in tournaments. A lightning
tournament was won jointly by McCulloch and Olund. The handicap,
main event of the first term, was won by Olund who defeated Fordyce
in the finals. The "Miniature" Chess tournament was also won by Olund,
with Bischoff a close second. These are being followed by the Spring
Championship which is divided into major and minor sections. Likely
aspirants for the crown are Pilkington, champion of former years;
Henniger, Bischoff and Olund. Also, matches in Fairy, Give-away and
other unorthodox forms of chess are being played.
The officers of the Club are: President, W. Henniger; Vice-President and Match Captain, E. Olund; Secretary-Treasurer, Art McCulloch;
Boards Committee, P. Parker and G. Palmer.

The Literary Forum
HP HE Literary Forum is a club which now takes the place of the
-"- former Women's Literary Society. It was formed in the spring of
1930 and has a membership of thirty. It is the only club of its kind on
the campus which is open to women of all years. At the meetings which
are held once every two weeks, with one or two social meetings a year,
criticisms of plays, books, or authors of contemporary interest, speeches
and debates are presented.
Thus far the first year of the Literary Forum has been an energetic
one. In accordance with its aims literary topics have been discussed and
a talk was given on correct parliamentary procedure. The last meeting
of the fall term was held in the evening at which a play of George
Bernard Shaw's was read.
At Hi-Jinks the members of the Forum sang their own song and
presented a skit. A strenuous programme for the spring term—the story
of an opera—is now being arranged.
Here's wishing the Literary Forum all success, as it establishes itself
on the campus!
The Social Science Club
["EMBERS of the Social Science Club continued to explore the
ramifications of economic theory throughout the session. A series
of successful meetings brought before the Club speakers from outside
the University who dealt with subjects ranging from labour problems to
governmental policy.
The practice of devoting a number of the meetings to student
papers was reintroduced this year. The benefit from the student point
of view was the discussions which were productive of unstinted criticism
and repartee. Informal discussion groups of the members, usually held
down town, were continued and proved very popular.
Due to the fact that a larger proportion than usual of this year's
membership were M.A. students, an unusually large number of new
members were voted in at the end of the year to fill the gaps left by this
year's graduates.
The executive for the current year included: Honorary President,
Professor J. Friend Day; President, N. Mussallem; Vice-President, R.
Shaneman; Secretary-Treasurer, Miss I. Wilson.
I 129] La Causerie
THE session 1930-31 has been a most interesting and profitable one for
the members of La Causierie. Soirees were held fortnightly at the
homes of the students. The aim of this Club is the improvement of
French pronunciation, greater fluency in conversation, and a stimulation
of interest in French usage and society.
Programmes consisted mainly of readings, conversational games,
group singing and charades. Instructive talks were kindly given by
various members of the faculty, who enlightened the Club on such subjects as, "Student Life in the Sorbonne," "French Femininism," and
"Travels Through the South of France." This year's programme also
includes an "original contributions night," in which all members will
take part. During that evening solos and musical numbers will be
The Club owes much of its success to the enthusiasm of former
members who are welcomed at all meetings.

The Classics Club
THE Classics Club is an organization formed some years ago to provide a medium for students in classics to discuss their opinions and
give their views on subjects of interest concerning the ancient world,
Greek and Roman.
The Club has met regularly this year at the homes of members and
very often professors, and a series of papers was prepared by the personnel
of the society. The subjects boasted a wide range, including "Romaniza-
tion of Britain," "Roman Remains in Britain," "Caelius Rufus and
Cicero," "Roman Baths," "Roman Sports," "Greek Lyric Poetry," "Greek
Idyllic Poetry," "Cicero and Tiro," "Books and Writing," "Classical
Manuscripts," "Roman Women," and "Virgil Through the Ages," the
latter by Professor Robertson in honour of Virgil's 2,000th anniversary.
The Executive included Professor Robertson, Ronald Lowe, Kathleen
Cummings, Robert Yerburgh, Malcolm McGregor and Carol Sellars.

summer research of faculty and undergraduate members.
Professor G. J. Spencer addressed the opening meeting, speaking on
"Grasshopper Control Investigators in the Chilcotin." The second meeting coincided with a lecture on "Sterilization of the Criminal and Feeble
Minded," given at the Vancouver Institute. The regular meeting of the
Club was postponed and members attended the Institute meeting. Ian
McTaggart-Cowan gave the next paper, entitled "A Naturalist in the
Canadian Rockies," and exhibited specimens of animals collected during
the summer. Professor J. Davidson addressed an interested audience on
"The Species Concept, Echoes of the Botanical and Horticultural Congress," showing slides of beauty spots visited on a trip to the "Old
The following papers have been arranged for the Spring Term: Mr.
Hugh Leech, "Some Summer Experiments;" Ian McTaggart-Cowan,
"Lantern Slides of Jasper and Banff National Parks;" Herbert Glover,
"The Satin Moth in British Columbia;" Miss Mollie Holliday, "Some
Structures of Plants in Relation to Their Environment;" Alfred Elliot,

The G. M. Dawson Discussion Club
^HE Geological Discussion Club continued this session with its programme of meetings featuring outside as well as student speakers.
The tendency this year is to have speakers on widely varying subjects, to make the meetings different from class-room lectures.
The honorary members have, as in the past, offered their homes
for the club meetings.
The executive for the 1930-31 session was: Honorary President,
Dr. T. C. Phemister; President, Ed. Loritt; Secretary-Treasurer, Vladimir
{nil International Relations Club
WITH the object of promoting interest in and the study of International Relations, this Club was founded in January, 1930, under
the auspices of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Since
that time, with steadily increasing membership, the Club has carried out
a programme of exceptional interest.
The first term was devoted to a study of the problems of Naval
Disarmament. Miss Mary Craif McGeachy, of Geneva, was one of the
principal speakers.
The autumn term was featured by reviews of books in the club
library, and addresses by Rev. G. O. Fallis and Miss Amy Hemminway
Jones, National Executive Secretary. A delegate attended the All Day
Conference on Peace in November, and three members of the Club
travelled to Reed College, Portland, as part of the U.B.C. delegation to
the Northwest Student International Conference.
Recently the Club became a member of the newly-inaugurated
Canadian Universities League of Nations Society. As a means of promoting closer connection between U.B.C. and other Canadian Universities, the Club regards this as a valuable link.
The executive for 1931 includes John Sumner, Bill Roper, Margaret
Black, Frances Milligan, and Herbert Gallagher. Tom Barnett, Helen
Boutilier, Leonard A. Wrinch, Freda Lasser and James Gibson presided
over the Club's activities during 1930.
The Menorah Society
THE Menorah Society had a very successful year, during which the
intellectual activities of the organization were stressed. The year
opened with a social evening at the home of Miss B. Sugarman. At the
following meetings papers were read by Michael Turner on "Eugenics of
the Jew;" Paul Pinsky on "The Economic and Political Conditions of
World Jewry;" David Rome on "A. D. Gordon, Vladimir Jakontinsky,
and Joseph Trumpeldon;" David A. Freeman on "Effects of the Arab
Riots in Palestine;" Dr. Jacob Brety on "Chicken Paralysis;" and George
Turner on "The Gentile and Zionism." A debate is being arranged at the
time of writing with the British Trumpeldon. The executive for the
year consisted of: President, H. Koshevoy; Vice-President, Miss Vera
Peters; Secretary, David A. Freeman; Treasurer, Paul Pinsky; Reporter,
David Rome.

The Law Club
'TPHE Law Club entered upon its career as a recognized University
-"- organization in the Spring Term of '30. Its objects included the
promotion of the study of jurisprudence in the University, and the
determination to work for the attainment of a Law Faculty here.
Professor Angus accepted the office of Honorary President, and
contributed a great deal by his advice and suggestions in the establishment
of the Club.
The officers of the Club for the year were: President, Frank C. Hall;
Vice-President, Nicholas Mussalem; Secretary-Treasurer, Robert L.
The only change in the next year's executive was the election of
Mr. Tupper as honorary president.
Mock-trials, as part of the regular proceedings, have this year proved
an attraction at the meetings.
Mr. R. M. Macdonald, the Dean of the Law School in Vancouver,
and Judge Fisher have given very interesting addresses to the Club, while
several other prominent legal men in the City are scheduled to give
addresses before the Term closes.
Graduation will find several members entering the legal world, so
the Club looks forward to having the benefit of alumni interest and
The Physics Club
HPHE Physics Club was organized two years ago for the purpose of
■*- interesting students in current developments in Physical Science.
To this end open meetings are held every second Wednesday, when students hear short expositions on the results of some recent research. Each
paper is usually followed by a general discussion in which the speaker
answers questions asked by the audience. Most of the programmes are
provided by students who are allowed to demonstrate apparatus of their
own construction. A student who thus takes an active part in the proceedings of the Club obviously benefits from this experience in public
speaking, while his audience learns something of interest and value.
The executive for the session consisted of: Honorary President,
Dr. Hebb; Honorary Vice-President, Dr. Shrum; President, M. H.
Hebb; Vice-President, H. Parker; Secretary-Treasurer, S. Lipson.
fl33] The Student Christian Movement
HPHE 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 life.
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
series of noon lectures, several week-end retreats at Copper Cove, with
a special three-day conference at Thanksgiving; an active discussion of
the "Aim and Basis;" and numerous special meetings.
Summer groups proved a successful innovation, while representatives attended six conferences, national and international.
Miss Gertrude Rutherford, Associate National Secretary; Dr. Glover
and Mr. C. F. Angus from England; Mr. Micklem of Queen's; Mr.
Cumming of the S.V.M. and Dr. Kotchnig of the I.S.S. have been
welcome visitors.
Interested students are now looking forward to the Spring Camp
and the projected Pacific Area Conference for Students to be held in
Vancouver in June with the Canadian National Movement as host.
The executive, since the retirement of Tom Barnett, has been:
President, Katherine Hockin; Vice-President, Eric Kelly; Secretary, Mary
Sadler; Treasurer, Fred Jakeway; Publicity, Idele Wilson; Camp, Patrick
The Household Science Club
A DEPARTMENT of Household Science is urgently needed at the University of British Columbia. To this end the Household Science
Club was organized in 1929, by a group of girls who, finding that the
first two years of the course were being given, have registered as Household Science students, and are earnestly hoping that they will be able to
complete this course in their own University. At the present time, the
Club has a membership of thirty.
The executive consists of Honorary President, Dean Bollert; President, Margaret I. Putnam; Vice-President, Mary Darnborough; Secretary-Treasurer, Helen Lowe.
Last fall the Club members took advantage of Home-Coming week
to present an appeal for an interest in the establishment of this course—a
rather unusual number on the programme.

on the part of every member has been shown, and the membership has
greatly increased.
The V. C. U. is a member of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship
of Canada, a chapter of the League of Evangelical Students of America,
and is affiiliated with the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of the
British Isles, and with the Fellowship in Australia and New Zealand.
During the session, pins, a notice-board, and a library were secured.
A conference was held with the University of Washington; Noel F.
Palmer, General Secretary for Canada, and Dr. H. Guiness, of Cambridge,
were present for a series of week-end meetings; several church services
were conducted, and a graduate group was formed. Also, several dinners
and socials were held.
The executive consisted of: President, Paul Campbell; Vice-President, Catherine Clibborn; Secretary, James Wilson; Librarian, Kathleen
Ward; Advertising Secretary, David Rice.
The Philosophy Discussion Club
HPHE Philosophy Discussion Club has had a very encouraging year
-*• with exceptional enthusiasm over the writing of papers. Inaugurated
last year, the policy of devoting the evenings to student papers has been
successfully considered. Under the able guidance of Professor Henderson
a beginning has been made in student criticism and formal discussion.
Arrangements have also been made to have the papers of the Club catalogued in the University Library.
Meetings have been held at the homes of professors and students
with the exception of one gathering, which was a most enjoyable banquet,
held at Union College.
The papers covered a wide range of subjects. They were read by
the following members: Alice Bailey, Verna Galloway, Frances Milligan,
Robert Brookes, Cicely Hunt, Marjorie Dimmock and Jack Anderson.
These papers were critized by Olive Selfe, Art Woolner, Evelyn Haines,
Peggy Cornish, Catherine Fish, Althea Banfield and Ethel McDowell.

I I" J The Agricultural Club
HPHE Agricultural Club has completed another active year. It has
-"- succeeded in arousing a keen enthusiasm among the students in the
discussion of current agricultural problems. This has been possible
through the evening meetings at which the students have obtained a
closer association with the professors of all departments of the faculty.
The noon-hour meetings fostered by the Club were particularly
successful this year. At these meetings outside speakers spoke on such
present-day problems as "The Wheat Situation of Canada" and "The
Epidemology of Tuberculosis." The oratorical contest was a feature of
the Spring term.
The annual trip to Agassiz was held early in March, and the enthusiasm displayed showed that it is still one of the most popular attractions
of the year. The programme for the day consisted of a livestock judging competition and an inspection of the farm. The year's activities
were closed by the annual Livestock Banquet where the winners of the
oratorical contest and the judging competition received their rewards.
The executive for the year 1930-31 consisted of: Honorary President, Prof. H. R. Hare; President, Tom Leach; Secretary-Treasurer,
Wilson Henderson; Manager of Evening Meetings, Bill Osborne;
Manager of Outside Speakers, Bill Vrooman; Manager of Debates, Bill
L'ALOUETTE has had for its aim this year, the promotion of interest
in the life and literature of France, as well as the encouragement of
greater fluency in the French tongue. The fortnightly meetings were held
at the homes of various members and the programmes have consisted of
conversation, games, folk-songs, scenes from Moliere's comedies and
sketches of twentieth century French writers. Two very interesting
evenings were the "La Fontaine Soiree" at the home of Madame Guiness,
and the informal tea at Le Restaurant Francais.
The members of the Club wish to express their gratitude to Miss
Grieg for her untiring efforts in the interests of the Club, to the hostesses
whose hospitality has added so much to the success of the meetings, and
to Miss Norah Haddock, Mr. Arthur Beattie, and Mr. Abner Poole,
former officers, for their assistance.
The executive for
year included:
Tanet T. Grieg;

The field trip, to visit logging operations, is planned for Campbell
River this year.
The Forest Club's Annual will be published again in March.
The Historical Society
THIS year the Historical Society has heard papers on "Imperialism,"
chiefly in relation to the British Empire. A general introduction to
the subject was given by Leonard Wrinch in his paper on "The History of
Imperialism." Imperialism in Egypt and in the Irish Free State were
then discussed by Idele Wilson and Freda Lasser.
During the second term of the session two papers were read dealing
with the effect of British Imperialism in the different parts of the
Empire. In the first, Talosa Timmins discussed the "Social, Political
and Economic Aspects of the Race Problem in South Africa," and in
the second, Jean Fowler dealt with "Ghandi," the leader of the Nationalist
movement in India. The trend of imperialism in the British Empire at
the present time was then considered by Leo Gansner in a paper on the
Imperial Conference of 1930. In the concluding paper of the year, Jean
Margolis outlined the rise and fall of imperialism in Russia.
The executive for the year was: Honorary President, Professor
A. C. Cooke; President, Leonard Wrinch; Vice-President, Helen Bou-
tilier; Secretary-Treasurer, Talosa Timmins.
1137 I The Letters Club
HPHE Letters Club, which is formed for the purpose of encouraging
-"- "the study of English as a joy," has completed a very successful year.
Nine papers were read. The first was by Jean Telford, who gave a
charming sketch of the Italian Picendello. The work of the Indian philosopher, Rabindrinath Tagore, was treated by Frank McKenzie in a
manner that showed both comprehension and appreciation. Betty Moore
read an interesting and humorous paper on the detective novels of
S. S. Van Dine, in which she revealed herself as a sleuth of no mean
ability. A most sympathetic study of Mary Webb by Patricia Newlands
was much appreciated. Then came Original Contributions evening;
the efforts, though occasioning much laughter, were often very admirable
and the critic pronounced the meeting one of the most successful he had
The first paper of the second term went back to the Victorian Age
when Mavis Holloway told us something of the work of Algernon Charles
Swinburne. Dick Lendrum's paper on W. H. Davies was most enjoyable.
Idele Wilson, in a very cleverly written paper, gave a clear sketch of
Clarence Mangan. Ronald Grantham, in his sketch of Bliss Carman,
went beyond even the high standard we set for the editor of the
"Ubyssey." A delightful year was brought to a fitting close with Don
McDiarmid's paper on Max Beerbohm.
Officers of the Club were: Honorary President, Mr. Larsen; Critic,
Dr. Walker; Archivist, Mr. Haweis; President, Dick Lendrum, Secretary-Treasurer, Mavis Halloway.
The Radio Club
THE Radio Club has as its objects to promote an interest in radio communication and experimental work and to extend the knowledge of
the principles of radio by individual and collective research.
The Club commenced work this year where it concluded last Spring,
the meetings taking the form of papers and discussions. A trip to one
of the city stations was organized in the Spring term, the members and
their friends learning much about a modern radio station.
The executive for the past year was as follows: Honorary President,
Dr. H. Vickers; President, T. Mouat; Vice-President, W. McRae; Secretary, R. Retallack; Treasurer, Douglas James.

Der Deutsche Verein
THE German Club has had a highly successful year. The members
have shown a keen interest, and the programmes have been consistently of the highest quality. Talks of great interest and usefulness
have been given by members of the Modern Language Department and
others, chief among the subjects of which may be mentioned: the Ober-
ammergan Passion Play, Albrecht Durer, Germany's great artist of the
Renaissance, the unusual but fascinating subject of Iceland and Holland.
Trips have been made, through the medium of the slide-lantern to many
countries in Europe, and particularly through beautiful Germany. Last
but not least must be mentioned the splendid musical programmes, featuring the works of the great masters of Germany. Probably few organizations on the campus combine entertainment of the highest order and
real instruction to such an extent as does Der Deutsche Verein.
The credit for the Club's success must go entirely to the Honorary
Executive: Dr. I. Maclnnis, Mrs. R. I. Roys, and Miss J. Hallamore.
Thanks must be rendered to those who have so kindly placed their homes
at the disposal of the Club or who have otherwise helped in a concrete
The Executive for the year was as follows: President, W. T. E.
Kennett; Vice-President, Hermann Bischoff; Secretary-Treasurer, Miss
Freda Lasser.
The Art Club
THE programme of the Art Club for this year, the third of its existence, has been marked by a study of the arts of various countries
rather than by any actual work. The Club was almost inactive during
the first term, but commenced a series of fortnightly evening studies,
soon after the New Year. These meetings, held at various homes, were
open to any students or members of the faculty who were interested.
Mr. Ridington gave a very interesting paper on "Canadian Art and
Artists" at his home late in January. He traced the development of
Canadian Art up to the present day, illustrating his paper with about
sixty lantern slides of paintings, by Canadian artists, now hanging in
eastern art galleries. Other subjects treated by the Club this term included Dutch Painting and Early American Indian Art.
The executive of the Club this year includes: Honorary President,
J. Ridington; President, Ronald Russell; Vice-President, Grace Adams;
Secretary-Treasurer, Stanley McLean.

The Society of Thoth
THE Society of Thoth again emerged into the limelight this year with
its annual Homecoming Ballet. This session's offering of the Royal
Egyptian Ballet was a new rendition of the classical legend, "The Burning of Troy." Nineteen scribes performed in a terpischorean interpretation of the drama, a chorus of Greeks, Trojans and hand-maidens
assisting the Homeric figures of the ancient myth. An innovation was
an orchestra of scribes.
Initiations in the Spring term provided amusement and exercise for
the old-timers and a fund of reminiscences for the neophytes.
The Stadium Fund Campaign inspired grandiose ambitions of downtown performances, but procrastination and disapproval on the part of
the Students' Council put an end to the plans.
Campus history was made when four hardy swimmers plumbed the
depths of the Lily Pond for the aid of the Stadium Fund, to the amusement of the multitude and the horror of the Alma Mater officials for the
The executive included: Grand Scribe, J. F. Fisher; Second Scribe,
W. G. Smith; Keeper of the Baksheesh, N. Mussallem; Scribe of the
Papyrus, A. G. McCulloch.
La Canadienne
DURING the 1930-31 session, twenty interested and ambitious students of French have been improving their conversation at the
regular fortnightly meetings of La Canadienne.
The "raison d'etre" of this active organization is the desire of its
members to attain facility in the use of conversational French, and to get
an insight into the customs, ideas, songs, etc., of the French people.
In the furtherance of these aims meetings have been held every two
weeks throughout the session, and varied and interesting programmes
have been presented. Songs, games, a music night, dramatics night,
poetry night and addresses by Faculty members, have been enjoyed by all.
The members wish to extend their thanks to those who have so
kindly lent their homes, or in any other way contributed to the success
of the Society during the year.
The Executive for 1930-31 was: Honorary President, Prof. E. E.
Delavault; President, Mary Herbison; Vice-President, Margaret Large;
Secretary, Reginald C. Price; Treasurer, Marion Hamilton.

The Engineering Institute of Canada
HPHE objects of the Student Section at U.B.C. are the advancement
-"- of practical engineering knowledge among its members, the development of a professional interest on the part of those who are going to
become engineers, and to impress upon the students the advantages
derived to themselves and to the profession by being members of an
organized society.
To this end the executive arranges weekly noon-hour talks, where
qualified speakers are heard representing all branches of engineering.
The meetings are open to all, and are frequently illustrated with slides
or films.
In addition the Section holds a Student Night, where papers are
delivered by members on engineering subjects. The papers delivered at
this meeting may be entered in competition for the prizes offered to
students or juniors by the Headquarters of the Engineering Institute.
An annual dinner also is held to promote closer relationship between
students and practising engineers.
To give an insight into the actual practice in engineering, field trips
are taken to places of interest in or around Vancouver. These included
the Vulcan Engineering Works, the Ruskin Power Development, the
engine room of the Empress of Japan, and the Vancouver Creosoting Co.

The Musical Society
"The man who hath no music in himself
Is fit for treason, strategems and spoils."
rE have no hesitation in saying that 1931 has ended the most brilliant
and triumphal year that the Musical Society has ever experienced.
Not only has it once more supplied the musical wants of students, but
ventured into the field of Gilbert and Sullivan, and so successfully that
the ensuing years should see a different musical comedy every spring.
The Society was fortunate this year in possessing an abundance of
talent, and had it not been for this fortuitous state of affairs, productions
of "Pirates of Penzance" would never have been possible. As it was, the
opera was an overwhelming success, both financially and musically, and
is a credit to C. Hadyn Williams, the conductor, and his organization.
Principals of the cast were: Kay Reid as "Mabel;" McKay Ester as
"Frederic;" Ian Douglas as the "Pirate King;" Robert Brooks as "Major
General;" Frank Snowsell as "Sam," the Pirate Lieutenant; Betty Smith
as "Edith;" Cathie Bridgman as "Isabel;" Alice Rowe as "Kate;" Gordon
Wilson as "Sergeant of Police."
During the fall term all effort was put forth into learning the
choruses and no attempt was made at casting. At Christmas the try-
outs were held and at the opening of the spring term work went ahead
with production, with Edgar C. Smith, of the North Shore Operative
Society, as dramatic director. A great deal of credit is due Mr. Smith
for his untiring patience with the chorus and principals, and his ready wit
saved many a rehearsal from failure. When rehearsals are such that
members are loathe to cease, you have an ideal organization, and such
was the case.
During the year the activities of the Society were many and varied.
New members were welcomed at a reception in Killarney early in the
fall term. At Homecoming, the Musical Society responded with a
collegiate version of the "Pie-Eyed Piper" which all averred was one of
the outstanding hits of the evening. The noon-hour recitals, which have
always been the bright spots in the school year, were the best that have
ever been presented. Probably the two most entertaining were on
occasions when the Home Gas Symphony Orchestra, under the direction
of Calvin Winter, with Frank C. Anders, announcer, presented a programme of popular and semi-classical airs, and when the C.N.R.V. Salon
Orchestra gave a magnificent recital of classical music, conducted by
C. Haydn Williams, late in the spring term. Artists who appeared at
different times included Marjorie Cornell, pianiste; C. J. Cornfield,
Charles Shaw, Ira Swartz, Mrs. F. Hodgson, Louise Stirk, Gladys Letroy,
Elfie Jussa and Muriel Farrel-Donnellan. Members of the Society who
assisted on different occasions were: Harry Katznelson, promising violin -

The Players' Club
THIS year has been an outstanding one in Players' Club annals. At
the Christmas production not one but four plays written by students
were presented with the highest degree of success. The Spring play,
which was pronounced brilliant by all who saw it, was a triumph for
actors and director alike.
The Advisory Board which rendered its usual invaluable aid was
composed of Professor F. C. Walker, Professor F. A. Lloyd, Mrs. James
Lawrence, and Professor F. G. C. Wood. The first two members directed
two of the Christmas plays, Mr. Wood taking charge of the production
of the Spring play. Much to the regret of the Club, Mrs. Lawrence was
unable to take as active a part as usual this year, but we were fortunate in
securing the services of Mrs. MacDougall, who directed another of the
Christmas plays, Mrs. F. G. C. Wood producing the fourth.
The piece de resistance of the Christmas production was Sidney
Risk's "Fog." This gripping tragedy won the Players' Club prize for
the best undergraduate work submitted. The two characters making up
the cast were splendidly portrayed by Ernest Gilbert, Arts '31, and
Drusilla Davis, Arts '34, and the play was notably directed by Mrs. Wood.
Sallie Carter, Arts '31, won honourable mention for "Trees," the
drama with which the evening opened. She also took the leading part,
that of a farm girl whose love of beauty was starved and thwarted by
her environment. Mary Darnbrough, Arts '33, did a nice piece of work
as the old mother, while John Emerson, Arts '34, took the part of the
father. The play was directed by Professor E. A. Lloyd, ably assisted
by Alfred Evans.
"Finesse," a comedy by Byron Edwards, Arts '30, also received
honourable mention. The cast was composed of Eleanor Turnbull,
Arts '34; Maudeen Farquar, Arts '34; Maurice Clements, Arts '31; R. I.
Knight, Arts '33; Jack Ruttan, Arts '33; Tom Groves, Science '31.
Professor Walker directed the play.
"The Florist Shop," the fourth play of the evening, was directed
by Mrs. Jack McDougall, Arts '24, who took the leading role the first
time the play was produced by the Players' Club. Marjorie Ellis, Arts
'34, took the same part this Christmas. Others in the cast were Margaret
Sheppard, Arts '33; C. I. Taylor, Arts '32; F. P. Miller, Arts '34; and
W. H. Cameron, Arts '33.   Sydney Risk was the assistant producer.
The Spring play this year bore a marked contrast to "Friend
Hannah," last season's production. "The Young Idea," by Noel Coward,
is one of the most brilliant comedies of this sophisticated modern dramatist. A feature of the production was the fact that the three leading
women's roles were taken by first-year girls—the parts of Gerda, Jennifer
and Cicely being played by Marjorie Ellis, Dorothy McKelvie, and Nancy

Symes. The leading man's part was taken by W. H. Cameron. Other
members making up a thoroughly satisfactory cast were Alfred Evans,
Ann Ferguson, Chris Taylor, Betty Buckland, Ruth Bostock, and R. I.
Knight. At the time of going to press, two of the major parts and
several of the minor ones have not yet been assigned. St. John Madeley
and H. Tull are still competing for Claud, while Archie Dick and Jack
Ruttan try for Hiram Walker. The places of a butler and a maid have
not yet been filled.
The Executive in charge during the year was made up of President,
Winston A. Shilvock; Vice-President, Eileen Griffin; Secretary, Alice
Morrow; Treasurer, James A. Gibson; Committee, St. John Madeley,
Dorothy Barrow, Archie Dick.

ist; Ian Douglas, baritone; Jean Black, pianiste; George Holland, accordionist; and Kay Reid, soprano.
The Music Committee, composed of Dr. McDonald, Mr. Williams,
Nelson Allen and Jean Fisher, were responsible for the choice of the
opera and the arrangements of recitals.
We cannot conclude this write-up without the tribute to Mr.
Williams, conductor, and the moving force behind the Society. It is
difficult to convey with so mundane a vehicle as language the appreciation we hold for him and the place he occupies in the hearts of everyone
of its members. Suffice it to say that were it not for his genius as a
conductor and his effervescent personality the "Pirates of Penzance"
would have been a sorry performance. We sincerely hope that when
next spring comes around the baton of C. Hadyn Williams will be waving
to the accompaniment of "We Sail the Ocean Blue," or "We Are Gentlemen of Japan" or some other of the stirring choruses from the immortal
Gilbert and Sullivan operas.
Members of the Executive are as follows: Honorary President, Dr.
McDonald; President, Nelson Allen; Vice-President, Betty Smith; Secretaries, Dora Bush and Maysie Graham; Treasurer, Bob Brooks; Men's
Representative, Bert Poole; Women's Representative, Tsyko Legero.
Members of the Opera Committee are as follows: Dramatic Department, Robert Brooks and Victoria Rendell; House Management, Bert
Webber; Advertising, Jack Pearson and Ron Russell; Costuming, Ruth
McDonald; Property, Ev. Hurt; Stage, St. John Madeley.

The Debating Union
HPHE Debating Union has successfully carried out during the past
■*■ year a series of open meetings at which various topics were discussed
under the leadership of two of the members chosen for each meeting.
This has materially aided in the carrying out of the aims of the Union
in that it has permitted a good deal of general discussion by all those
interested in debating.
The executive for the year was: President, Jack Sargent; Vice-
President, Milton Owen; Secretary, William Whimster; Debates Manager, Frank Christian.
At the time of writing the interclass debates are in progress. Thus
far it appears that they will meet with the great success which attended
those of last year.

IN the spring of 1930 some prominent business men of Vancouver
decided that it was necessary for the city to have a stadium. Immediately, several U.B.C. men, seeing the advantages of a stadium on the
campus, commenced to promote this project. All spring and summer
they investigated and talked, and when fall came, were ready to present
their ideas to the student body, and, in an enthusiastic Alma Mater
meeting, were given the power to go ahead and start the campaign. A
trip to Victoria was made by the President of the Alma Mater Society
and the President of Men's Athletics. The government promised to give
dollar for dollar for what the students raised themselves. Something,
meanwhile, seemed to affect the sentiment of the student body, because
for a while after this, the whole scheme appeared to be abandoned. But,
after Christmas, with renewed spirits Council revived the scheme, and
supported by the vote of the students of the University, launched a
monster campaign, with $20,000 the objective set, all to be raised by
student effort either by personal contribution or by soliciting.    Com-

mittees were formed speedily, and the whole drive organized efficiently
owing to the previous work and thought of the leaders.
The campaign on the campus itself lasted for two weeks, ending
February 6. The most outstanding group was the Anglican Theological
College and the most outstanding faculty, Science. Classes vied with each
other in collecting the largest amounts. To Science '33, under the leadership of Vic Rogers and Harold Morehead, goes the credit for being most
outstanding in pep and in contributions. The methods devised for
bringing in the money were varied and many; there were noon-hour
dances and a yo-yo contest in the gym; raffles and sales of novelties, including hot-dogs, on the quadrangle; picture shows and pep meetings
in the Auditorium; a Thoth swimming meet in the lily pond; fortune-
telling by Madame X; a theatre party at the Empress, sponsored by the
Aggies; a horse-race under the supervision of the "Theologs," the first
sport event to take place on the site of the stadium; classes forewent
refreshments at their parties, and the Senior classes donated the money
intended for the annual boat-trip; Arts '31 and Education '31 sponsored
a public dance in the Auditorium; and to crown this, all caution money
was voted to the fund, and many students pledged themselves to give five
dollars besides.
On the conclusion of the campaign on the campus, the down-town
drive started, and lasted until February 21. Growth of the fund was
recorded on a huge thermometer, built by Jack Macdonald and hung
up on the quadrangle.
It is just a year since the plan for a stadium was born. It has grown
slowly since that time, but surely, and once more the University of
British Columbia has succeeded in a campaign, having now the assurance of at least a permanent track and playing field. Principal in this
achievement have been: Charles Schultz, Chairman of the Committee;
Betty Buckland, Alan Campbell, Frank MacKenzie, Stewart Terhune,
Ralph Brown, Earl Vance, Eric North, Frank Buckland, and C. L.

The Men's Basketball Club
THIS year the Men's Basketball Club enjoyed one of the best seasons
in its history.   Much of the success was undoubtedly due to having
a sufficient number of members to handle the executive end of the Club.
Four teams were entered in the Vancouver and District League,
but unfortunately the Intermediate "A" team was unable to complete its
schedule and consequently lost its franchise. The Senior "A" turned
out its wonder team which finished the season well at the head of the
league at the expense of the other teams. During the Christmas holidays
the team took a short trip to Nanaimo to keep in shape. Needless to say
the boys displayed some of their sterling basketball as well as enjoying
themselves in a very thorough manner. The team has certainly put their
heart into it this year and deserve every bit of success in the play-offs
and any efforts towards further laurels. Until the last moment the
prospects of the Senior "B" team were very bright, but their inability to
overcome the Pals, cost them a place in the finals. At the time of writing
the Intermediate "B" team after a very successful season had won the first
game of the playoffs and looked like the winning team.
The executive of the Club was made up of the following men:
President, Harry Thorne; Vice-President, Laurie Nicholson; Secretary-
Treasurer, Jack Streight; Business Manager, Arnold Cliff; Team Manager,
Lome Falconer.
Senior "A" Basketball
Thorne—President.   Harry has been the man behind the scenes for the
Basketball Club this year.
Dr. Montgomery—Coach.   His second year with the squad, and his
untiring efforts have put the team on top.
Dr. Thorpe—Physician.   The superior condition of the team has pulled
them through more than one game.    The credit for this is due to
Doc. Thorpe.
Falconer—Manager.   Lome's help in filling out the tenth man in early
morning practices has made him one of the gang.
Cliff—Business Manager.   Arnie has looked after the home games for
the team, also he was a big help in Nanaimo.
Henderson—Captain.    A forty minute man with lots of experience
to back his game.   He jumped centre and dropped back to defensive
Chapman—Robbie and his "hiss' have created a sensation in more than
one game; his blocking and passing have made him a valuable team

Senior "B" Basketball
Left  to Right:   R.  Temple,  T.  Barbour,  B.   Lucas,  J.   O'Neil,   W.   White   (captain),   A.   Macleod,   C.   Ritchie.
T the time of writing the Senior "B" team is experiencing a very successful season.   We hope for the Provincial title.
The fine condition of the players, due to pre-season practices, is a
big factor in the team's success. Great interest was taken because of the
chance to "make" Varsity's Senior "A" team. It was only with great
difficulty that the latter was selected.
Drawn in Section I. of the league, the team had to play Mountain
View Pals, Meraloma "A", and Young Conservatives. To date, we have
lost two games to the "Pals" but have won the remaining seven games.
The "Blue and Gold" boys are second only to the "Pals"—one game
The team is managed by "Ceci" Ritchie to whom we owe a great
part of our success. The line-up is as follows: Bill White, captain and
guard; Ted Barbour, forward; Bill Lucas, centre and guard; "Biff"
Macleod, forward; Jim O'Neil, forward; Lloyd Williams, forward; Bob
Simpson, guard; Roy Temple, guard; Gordie Root, forward.

THE Varsity Intermediate "B" Basketball team has established a very
satisfactory record. They held first place in the first half of the
series and have won the right to enter the final play-offs in the second
half. Like the Senior team, these players have mastered a zone defense
that seems to be impregnable, while they have a fast aerial attack. Most
of the players are fresh from high school teams and will provide good
material for the Senior "A" Division in a few years.

The Canadian Rugby Club
THE season 1930-31, in Canadian Rugby history, has been the most
successful yet. In many ways it has been epoch-making: Varsity held
the first real training-camp in Western Canada, played the first game of
night rugby in Canada under floodlights, and was the first coast team to
play on the Prairies.
Increasing interest in the Canadian code is apparent on all sides in
the larger and more enthusiastic support and in the larger early-morning turnouts. All in all—stripped of silver and championships (Varsity lost the Hardy and failed to recapture the Lipton Cup), the past
season is at least a criterion of the much improved game played in the
West, and in keeping pace Varsity can look forward with confidence to
the future.
One of the great features of this season was the training-camp.
When first mooted, doubt was expressed as to the feasability of the
scheme. The town executive, however, under Dr. Burke and Scotty
Mclnnes worked indefatigably on the plan and "zero" hour, September
1st, found forty men on the way to Bowen Island, and all doubts of
success dispelled. The camp was an unqualified success. Ten days of
rugby and nothing else, fine playing fields, excellent accommodations
and strict training rules combined to produce results. Clipping, tackling,
running, bucking, double-teaming, kicking, signal practices and chalk-
talks at night, not to mention "time" served on the "dummy" soon put
the boys in shape to enjoy those Mt. Strahan Lodge meals, the swimming,
bridge, tennis and fishing that formed the other side of the picture.
When the team returned to Varsity it had glorious memories of days
spent there and nicknames acquired (some printable, others not, but
all suitable, doubtless). It is hoped this camp will become a tradition
for future "Blue and Gold" gladiators and for those who were at Bowen
this year, the next camp will mean that "Happy Days Are Here Again!"
The season opened with an exhibition between Varsity and Hamilton
Tigers in Canada's first game of night rugby. U.B.C. played its first
game of the season, with a half-green team against the most experienced
champions of Canada in midseason form and, as was inevitable, lost.
The Big Four League opened and Varsity upset the "dope" by
defeating the highly-praised Vancouver team and losing to the Meralomas. Given a bye in the League, Varsity travelled to defend the Hardy
Cup on the Prairies. The "Blue and Gold" won easily at the University
of Alberta but lost the Hardy Cup and the Western Intercollegiate Championship to a much improved University of Saskatchewan team at Saskatoon. The team returned to the coast and fought its way to the finals
where, in the most keenly contested game seen in Vancouver, the Meralomas just nosed out Varsity and its hopes for the Lipton Cup.
The success of the past season, and it was a great success in spite of

City and Junior Canadian Rugby
THE bulk of the Canadian Rugby Club is made up of these two teams.
This year has been very successful. One team only played in the fall
term, but there were two groups in the spring. One of these teams,
however, did not get into definite league action because of the lack of
opposition. In the fall, the team, although losing the Labrie trophy to
Vancouver College after a series of games, redeemed itself by going
through the league play-off to gain the Sun trophy, emblematic of the
Lower Mainland Junior championship. Owing to lack of financial support the play-offs were not held with Nelson and Trail during the Christmas holidays as planned. The Provincial championship thus came to
Varsity by default.
In the spring term the "City" team made an excellent showing and
gave promise of a wealth of material for the gaps in next year's "Big
Four" line-up. It would be unfair to give precedence to any section of
the team in playing ability. The backfield is heavier than other years
but does not lack speed.   The line, composed to a considerable extent of

seasoned players, has all season been a veritable stone wall to opposing
teams. A large number of the men have turned out for practice consistently every morning at 7:30 in both the fall and spring. Under the
tutelage of Dr. Burke and his assistants, they have increased their football knowledge to such an extent that "Big Four" men will undoubtedly
have to watch their step if they are to hold their positions next year.
The long continued and earnest training of the members of the team
bore fruit in the good showing they made in the latter part of their
schedule. After losing several games at the beginning of the term, they
came back to defeat each of their opponents successively and win a place
in the playoffs. In the final game of the year the team was to face the
Meralomas who have long been the chief stumbling block of Varsity in
regard to Canadian rugby. Emulating the actions of the Big Four team
before Christmas, they lost the game by one point as the result of a series
of bad breaks.   This wound up an eventful season.

The English Rugby Club
THE English Rugby Club became organized at a very early date this
fall due to the necessity of preparing for the game with Imperial
Japanese. Daily practices were held from the first of September and,
although the game itself was a disappointment in that Varsity lost, the
possibility of a strong team was assured. The Miller Cup League started
and for the first time in years the team got away to a good start. Winning
the first five games, the capture of the cup seemed certain until Estabrook and Rogers went off with bad ankles. The weakened team dropped
the next three games, thus forfeiting their chances of winning.
In the midst of the Miller Cup series the first of the McKechnie
Cup fixtures was played against the champion Vancouver Reps. Playing on a sodden field, Varsity's fighting forwards were in their element.
Although the Varsity squad pressed from start to finish, bad breaks left
them at the short end of a 13-8 score. The second game in this all-
important series was played in Victoria on the fifth of January. This
game, being a yearly feature, was looked forward to and worked for
with keen anticipation by the members of the team. Stiff workouts were
held for a week before the game. The game itself, on a dry fast field was
one of the two of three best ever played in B.C. Both sides played
inspired rugby. It was well on in the second half before either side
scored when Forbes of Victoria went over between the posts. Later
Turgras of the same team scored. The game ended with Victoria 8,
Varsity 0. Although Varsity has lost twice, they have a fighting chance
of winning the famous trophy. Right now the team is training hard in
preparation for the game with Vancouver on January 31.
The business of the Club was efficiently handled by Gerry Ballentine,
President; John Farris, Vice-President, and the executive consisting of
Derry Tye, Douglas Gordon and Colin McQuarrie. At present the
rehearsals for second presentation of the revue "Bally-Who", are being
held under the able direction of Ted Clarke. The proceeds will go toward the Stadium fund. A tea dance with profits going to the same
cause is arranged for after the McKechnie Cup game on the 31st. The
Club is indebted to Rod Pilkington who handled the write-ups and Harry
Ford, the head coach, who also deserves much credit.
The team:
Captain Bert Barratt—Playing his fifth year in senior company, is
the best field general in B. C. His graduation will be a big loss to
the team.   Good luck, Bert.
Phillip Barratt—Wing three-quarter, is also a five-year man.   He is
an old player, full of the tricks of the game.
Howard Cleveland—Playing his second year as senior full-back; is
probably the best man in this position in the city; has a good kick,
a deadly tackle and a sure pair of hands.

UNDER the guiding hand of Gil Mcllmoyl, the Varsity Second team
has managed to go through its league schedule to date without a
defeat. At time of writing the team heads the league with seven wins, no
losses and one draw, a total of fifteen points out of a possible sixteen. The
one blot on the record was a 3-3 tie with Meralomas early in the season.
The Victoria College game was not so successful, however, and Varsity II. went down to defeat, 8-0. Victoria played a superb game and a
weakened Varsity team could not quite hold them in the first half when
all the scoring was done. Much better results are hoped for in the return
game here.
This year the team has worked harder and better than in any past
year and much of this enthusiasm must be placed to the credit of our
coach, Gil Mcllmoye, who has turned out morning and afteroon, rain or
shine. It is the team's ambition to bring back the Bell-Irving Cup, which
has not been won by Varsity since 1925.

schedule. With only one defeat and five wins we are at the top of the
third division. This term with the help of a coach and some new men we
hope to continue the good work. We were badly beaten by the Normal
team at the beginning of the season but after this, being better organized,
we romped through games with the Rowing Club, the Frosh, Ex-Byng,

coaching and organization was evident in the loss of their first three
games. They followed this by a clean record, defeating the unbeaten
Ex-Normals and following this by trouncing Ex-Magee. The Ex-Byng
squad and the North Shore fifteen were the next to fall before the Freshman onslaught. Although this completes the schedule to date, the success of the Frosh squad is assured. With Harry Pearson at the helm and
Bert Barratt as coach a highly trained and organized team has been
developed.   A great deal of credit is due the above-mentioned men.

HPHE Varsity Track Club began the year by sending "six men to the
-1L W. C. I. A. W. meet at Edmonton. While the team was not as successful as expected, the journey stimulated subsequent competition on the
campus. The Arts '30 Road Race was won by Alf. Allen after a brilliant
sprint. The Frosh-Varsity meet which followed was won by the Freshman, records being set by Ralph Thomas and Bob Alpen. A meet with
the Y.M.C.A. concluded the fall term; competition was excellent and the
"Gold and Blue" triumphed with a hard won lead of eight points. This
was largely due to the sensational performance of Ralph Thomas. During the Invasion a relay of four sprinters defeated the Victoria "Y."
The Spring programme was opened by the Cross Country Race.
An unprecedented entry of thirty-two runners was ample evidence of
the increased interest displayed in track this year. Leo Gansner won the
event for the second time, setting a new record. The historic Arts '20
Relay was also closely contested this year with Arts '34, the Aggies and
Arts '32 in the lead. In this contest, as in the cross-country, a number of
the best performances were turned in by new members of the Club.

The Golf Club
DURING the past year the Golf Club has made great progress. The
opening of the University Golf Course has added the needed facilities close at hand. The women of the University are now affiliated with
the Club and take part in its activities. Tournaments for the year included the Student-Faculty match, Handicap Championship, Open
Championship, Victoria College match and home and away matches with
Washington. One of the achievements of the Club has been the gaining
of reduced rates on the University Course for all members of the student
body. Much interest has been aroused and more progress is expected in
the coming year.
Officers for the year include: President, Wilfred McKnight; Vice-
President, Alice Bailey; Secretary-Treasurer, Arnold Powell; Business
Manager, Alfred Evans.

reverses, is due in a large part to Dr. Burke, Sandy Smith and the executive.
"Doc," at great personal sacrifice and for love of the game, gave unstint-
ingly of his time and experience in coaching. One wonders what U.B.C.
would be like, or what we should do without "Doc." Captain Sandy
Smith, with four years Senior experience, was invaluable as an aid to Dr.
Burke and to his team-mates on the field. A tremendous contribution,
unseen by the cheering fans, was made by a hard-working executive composed of Dr. Davis and Earl Vance, president and manager of Senior
team; Johnny McLean, Roy McDonald, Audrey Cruise, Jack Sargent
and Lyle Jestley. Team work, here just as much as on the field, has
played a great part in Varsity's success. If in the past we have had
occasion to be proud of our team, we should be no less proud of the executive behind it and any future executive will have to work hard to equal
this year's record.
The team of next year will contain many new faces. The Club
suffers the loss through graduation of Sandy Smith, Cam Duncan, Bill
Latta and Lyle Jestley (the twins) and Irv. Smith. The Intermediate
team will doubtless help to fill the breach as it has in the past. The
standard has so risen that it has become increasingly hard to pick the first
string—and then there is "Doc" Burke, always a factor to reckon with
when it comes to making teams.

team man.
Tervo—Randy with his long shots from out beyond the foul line have
worried more than one guard.
Campbell—Pi's work on offensive rebounds has been the sensation of
the league.   He is the high scorer of the team.

The Soccer Club
THE Soccer Club has had a very successful year, with each team
making a credible showing.
The Senior soccer squad started this season back in the second
division of the V. & D. League and celebrated by chalking up two
straight wins. For a while things did not go very well, injuries and bad
breaks contributing to several defeats.
This term saw a fighting aggregation playing for its place in higher
company, and first the leaders and then other strong opposition were
overcome. Thus the Club retained its position and will next year be
again among the leading lights of the second division. Varsity always rose
to the occasion and inflicted upon the B. C. Telephone squad the first
defeat the latter had suffered in twelve months. The executive of the
Club is as follows: President, Ernest C. Roberts; Vice-President, E. H.
King; Secretary-Treasurer, Malcolm McGregor; Manager, Thomas
McGregor—Goal. Malcolm has saved the team on numerous occasions
by his spectacular saves, between the posts.
Roberts—Back. The most vigorous tackier on the squad, and the man
with the most powerful kick.
Chalmers—Back. Captain Tommy is always reliable and finished in
his play.   Rated as the best left back in the league.
Wright—Half.   A determined tackier with a valuable burst of speed.
Kozoolin—Half. The finished product. Paul is a freshman and the
best acquisition the Club has secured in years.
Waugh—Half. A well-built player from Nanaimo, a newcomer to
the team.   Has a good kick and uses his build to advantage.
Cox—Half. A junior recruit promoted at Christmas, and molded from
a clever forward into a badly needed half. Jimmy shows great
Buckley—Half.   A dour plodder who always turns in a steady game.
Wright—Bunny has speed to burn and this year developed a stinging
drive which finally netted him his annual goal.
Todd—Another freshman find. Dave is from a football family and
carries on the traditions.   Has the hardest drive on the team.
Cooke—The Club lost tricky Bud when he had the misfortune to break
his leg in a game in the first term.   Hope to see him back next year.
Costain—Centre forward. The inimitable cherub. Donned a Varsity
sweater for the first time this year, and on this year's form will keep
it for life.

I 171] The Men's Gymnasium Club
THIS year has been very successful for the Men's Gymnasium Club.
The session 1930-31 was the first complete one that the Club has had,
as it was not organized until December, 1929. The membership has increased over that of last year, new men joining continually. The remarkably large number of members that came regularly to the class in the
University Gymnasium bears ample witness to the fact that the Club is
carrying out the intentions of its organizers very well.
Most of the credit goes to Mr. T. F. Whiffin, the very able and
efficient instructor, who has been with the organization since its inception. The Swedish system of gymnastics includes both floor and apparatus work. The work-outs were greatly aided by the practical completion of equipment, which factor contributed considerably to the success
of the Club during the past seven months.
It is hoped and expected that next year will be an even greater one
for the young organization when its opportunities shall become better
known to the students.
Gordon W. Stead, President; Arthur Dobson, Secretary; and Leo. S.
Gansner, Treasurer, formed the executive for the season.

FTER an enthusiastic turnout at the beginning of the season, the
team has earned a place in the upper half of the league standing.
Two or three players were promoted to the Seniors and consequently, the
Juniors were not expected to accomplish much.
The timely advice of Dr. Todd has been of much assistance to
Managers Ritchie and Fletcher.
Although eliminated from the Con Jones Shield competition the
team has a good chance of going a long way towards the Junior Provincial Championship.
The defence of P. Frattenger in goal and Grant and Roper at back
offers quite a problem for any opposing forward line to solve. The half
line is also strong with Dickson, the captain, at left, Arnold White at
centre, and either Goumeniouk or Fletcher on the right in place of the
injured Max. The forward line has scored over forty and of these
Broadhurst, at centre, has obtained over half. On the inside he is ably
supported by Hughie Smith and Jimmie Smith. Laurie Todd on the
extreme left has the reputation of being one of the best wings in the
league. Cunningham is shaping out well on the right wing. Boris
Goumeniouk is the substitute goalie.

The enthusiasm evinced by members at the beginning of the fall
term has hardly maintained the original high standard throughout the
year; nevertheless the Club may be said to have enjoyed a satisfactory
season. The evidence of this lies more in the increased membership and
greater recognition of the game throughout the University than in any
startling results achieved on the playing field. At the time of writing,
the Varsity team is holding middle place in the league, though the U.B.C.
team retains its position at the bottom. With regard to the latter eleven
it may be said that the enthusiasm which has served to bring out a full
team to face constant defeat at the hands of more experienced opponents,
is very gratifying to those who have the interests of the Club at heart.

The Men's Grass Hockey Club
There is little doubt that many of the players who started the game with
U. B. C. this year will be worthy of a permanent place on the Varsity
squad next season.
A notable feature among the activities of the Club was the two-day
trip to Duncan, made during the Christmas holidays. Residents of the
Island city were the hosts and arranged a very pleasant week-end for the
invaders from U. B. C, the programme including two men's games, one
mixed game and a dance.
The gratitude of the Club is once again due to Mr. Bushell who has
given freely of his time in coaching both teams and providing chalk talks
during noon hours.
The business of the Club throughout the year has been efficiently
executed by the following officers: Honorary President, Lt.-Col. H.

few to equal him.
Roy McConnachie—A hard-working, rear rank man who has been
kept out of the game with a bad foot injury. However, he will
be out again next fall.
Bert Griffin—Sprang into prominence on Christmas day against Meralomas.   Since then he has held down a rear rank position with ease.

THE Varsity Ice Hockey team for this year has done very well in spite
of the low age limit set by the league for all players. Most of the
games lost have resulted from hard luck in the last minutes of the game
after having obtained, in some cases, a rather substantial advantage.
Prospects look very promising for the next season as all the men will be
returning to the University next year.
The line-ups were arranged as follows: Goal, K. McGregor; Defense,
L. Falconer, R. Hager, A. Kerby; Forwards, R. Darrah (captain),
Ramsden, J. Kelly, G. Wightman, H. Horseman, A. Dorrell, Cameron,

The Men's Big Block Club
THE Big Block Club is in its second year at the University. The
presence of the Club is being felt more and more, and it will soon be
recognized as perhaps the leading club on the campus. The eligibility
rules recommended by the Club have come into effect and the new Big
Block Sweater can be seen on prominent athletes on the campus.
This year the first annual Big Block Day was observed by a dance in
honour of new award winners.
The Big Block Club hopes this year to promote a high school basketball tournament, and to make contact with Alumni Big Block men. By
doing so the Club will take another step towards closer relationship
between past, present and future athletes of the University.
The executive is as follows: Honorary President, Heiley Arkeley;
President, Bert Barratt; Vice-President, Ken Martin; Secretary, Alan
Estabrook; Treasurer, Bob Alpen.
The Track Club
(Continued from Page One Hundred and Sixty-seven)
Olympic tryouts in 1932 should be an added stimulus to our competitors;
they feel that Varsity can contribute a large share of the local talent. At
the time of writing, interclass and interfaculty contests are in the offing
as well as a clash with the V.A.C. Arrangements are also being made
with an American college for a meet, which will complete activities for
the season.
The executive this year is: Honorary President, Dr. J. G. Davidson;
President, L. Gansner; Vice-President, R. Gaul; Secretary-Treasurer,
J. Curie; Captain, R. Alpen.

T time of writing there are still two galas to be run off in the Lower
Mainland Swimming League and the Club is tied for second place
with Crescent, V.A.S.C. aggregation being in the lead.
Morning practices have been held for the team since beginning of
Christmas holidays, non-team members going to Chalmer's tank Tuesday and Thursday nights.
Of the old team Mary McLean, our best bet in sprints, Joe McDiarmid, Margaret Ross and Marjorie Peel were back in good form.
Phyllis Boe, a new discovery and a strong member of the team, Audrey
Rolston and Dorothy Rennie all joined the team for the first time.
Marion Sangster dived for us again after a two year's absence.
Of the men, Bill Moffat was perhaps the most versatile and hardworking. Harry Andison and Ron Wilson could both be relied upon
to take first places against the hardest competition in Vancouver. Ernie
Peden made good in the diving while Norm. Gustafson helped the team
out in free style.
Don Tyerman, in spite of a Science course and Canadian Rugby
practices turned out to coach the squad and the team owe a great deal to
his "untyering" efforts.

Challenge matches for non-team players have been arranged with outside clubs; arrangements for a tour of the Okanagan by a team of four
are at present being completed; and the annual Chilliwack trip will be
made by the second team. The team visiting Victoria in the Christmas
holidays lost two games to Victoria teams.
"B" and "C" teams were again entered in the Vancouver and District League. The second team, which is at present tied for third place,
consists of Margaret Palmer, Margaret Moscrop, Eleanor Everall, Frances-
Reynolds, G. Wild, C. Strachan, and since Christmas, R. Moore and P.
McTaggart-Cowan have taken the place of D. Nichol and T. Shiels.
The "B" team, which shows promise of topping its league, consists of:
Ellen Gleed combines cross-net shots and tricky serves to make
a dependable game.
Bunny Pound is developing a tricky serve and is noted for her
energetic play.
Irene Ramage possesses a powerful smash and a strong back shot.

The Outdoors Club
HPHE session of 1930-31 has proved to be the best that this Club has
-"- ever had. The enrolment of active members is over fifty, making it
one of the largest clubs on the campus. During the fall term the Club
made all the regular annual hikes up Seymour, Crown, and other North
Shore mountains. In addition to these, the "Camel" on Crown Mountain
was conquered twice, both times with women in the party, a thing which
has never been attempted before by the Club. Another new feature on
this year's programme was the ascent of Mount Baker by fifteen members
of the Club. The peak was not reached due to adverse weather conditions; the party ran into a blizzard at an elevation of nine thousand feet
and had to turn back.
The skit put on by members of the Club for Theatre night, although
a first attempt, was quite a success. A swimming party was held during
the fall term as a get-together for the old and new members. On New
Year's Eve the Club held its second annual turkey dinner in the Club
cabins on Grouse Mountain.
During the spring term the Club activities are confined almost
entirely to skiing, and trips have been planned to several of the North
Shore peaks. The annual men's downhill race from the top of Dam
Mountain to the Club cabin; the women's race; and a new feature this
year, a cross-country race, are all parts of the Club's programme. This
last race starts from the Club cabin and proceeds out to the end of
Thunderbird Ridge and back again to the cabin. It is about five miles
in length and will test the skill and endurance of the best skiers.

The Women's Big Block Club
THIS year a Women's Big Block Club was organized on the Campus,
consisting of all holders of Women's Big Block athletic awards. These
awards are given to members of Senior "A" Basketball team playing at
least two or three league games; four girls ranking highest on the Swimming team: persons winning their small block awards four years or in
three upper years; and the Badminton singles champion. All awards
are made by the Big Block Club and their selection is then submitted to
Council for final approval. Any letter award may be given on the special
recommendation of the Women's Athletic Executive.
The object of the Club is to promote good clean sport in the University, to maintain a high standard of awards and to act as an advisory
board to incoming women students.
With Mary Campbell as president, Marion Shelly as vice-president
and Mary MacLean as secretary the Club made its debut into campus
activities by holding a bridge at the home of Mrs. W. C. Shelly, proceeds
to be given over to the Stadium Fund.
The Women's Gymnasium Club
I" N order to enable more of the women students to take part in at least
-"- one athletic activity, the executive of the Women's Gymnasium
Club decided at the opening of the 1930-31 session to hold two classes
each week instead of the customary one. These classes were held in the
Varsity gymnasium on Tuesdays from 3 to 4 o'clock, and on Thursdays
from 4 to 5. Due to insufficient support from the women students the
Tuesday class was dropped after Christmas.
At the beginning of the fall term an informal tea was held at the
home of the president, Kathleen Crosby, to which all women students
interested in gymnasium work were invited. The purpose of the tea was
to arouse interest in the Club among the women of the University, and
to provide an opportunity for the members to make the acquaintance
of the new instructress, Miss L. Rutherford of the Y.W.C.A.
Under the competent instruction of Miss Rutherford, a class of
about fifty carried out an extensive programme of floor work, rythmics,
games and apparatus work.
The executive for the year consisted of: President, Kathleen Crosby;
Vice-President, Bessie Robertson; Secretary-Treasurer, Kathleen Murray.

Senior "A" Basketball
THE Women's Senior "A" Basketball team is this year unholding the
splendid record set by former Varsity teams in the Vancouver and
District Basketball League. Up to date of writing, the girls have succeeded in vindicating the trust of college fans in refusing to drop but a
single game. Interest in Senior basketball was more evident this year
when the number of opposing teams increased to four.
The loss of Rene Harris, Rettie Tingley, and Flo Carlisle of last
year's line-up is keenly felt by the team. However, worthy recruits have
been found in Berna Dellert and Gladys Munton, who, under the careful coaching of Jack Barberie have earned places on the team. Captain
Claire Menten and former captain Thelma Mahon are real veterans
having served for five and four years respectively. Another who will
be missed next year is Mary Campbell who has been a member for the
past three years. Of the others, Jean Whyte and Lois Tourtellotte
graduate this year, while Marian Shelly has left the team owing to
scholastic duties.
World Champions
LAST year's Senior "A" team brought honour and glory to their Alma
Mater last summer, when they travelled over to Prague, Czecho-
Slavakia, to represent Canada in the Women's International Games and
defeated France in the finals to win the world's title.
After the splendid opposition which they showed against the Edmonton Grads, acknowledged leaders in the basketball world, in the Dominion
finals, the University team was selected by Dominion officials to uphold
the honour of Canada in these games. This demanded strenuous weeks
of campaigning directed by the University enthusiasts, Vernard (Pinky)
Stewart, Bill Thompson and Frayne Gordon, and Mr. John Russell,
business manager of the "Vancouver Daily Province," and concentrated
training during the summer months under the very able direction of
coach, Jack Barberie.
The personnel of the group comprised the following: Mrs. John
Whyte, chaperon; Claire Menten, captain; Thelma Mahon; Mary
Campbell; Jean Whyte; Rettie Tingley; Rene Harris; Marian Shelly;
Flo Carlisle; Lois Tourtellotte; and Mr. Jack Barberie, coach and
The game, played under international rules, on the stadium cinder
court, proved vastly different from the type of basketball played on this
continent; nevertheless the girls returned victorious.
ffl«7l Senior "B" Basketball Team
Back Row:  C.  Lee   (coach), D.  Black.  B.  Hicks,  M.  McLean.
Front Row:  V. Mellish,  A.  Harper, M.  Clarke,  N.  Jones,  W.  Watson.'
ALTHOUGH the Women's Senior "B" Basketball team has not been
able to distinguish itself in the first half of the league, the improvement shown in recent games promises better scoring in the second half
of the season.
The team was very fortunate in securing the untiring services of
Cy Lee as its coach. From the day of the first game, Cy has devoted a
great deal of time to training the girls, whose play is now showing the
results of his efforts.
The team includes: Muriel Clarke (captain), Marian McLean,
Norma Jones, Andree Harper (forwards), Betty Hicks, Helen Maguire
(centres), Wilma Watson, Violet Mellish, Dorothy Black (guards).

The Women's Grass Hockey Club
HPHIS year has proved the most successful the Women's Grass Hockey
■*• Club has ever known, chiefly because of the enthusiasm and energy
displayed by the girls. Although, through lack of a Varsity playing
field, they have had to go all the way to Connaught Park for practices,
over thirty girls have turned out faithfully. The Women's Lower Mainland League, an experiment last year, is now definitely established, and
seven teams are competing for the cup. Marjorie McKay, Education '31,
is the president, and deserves a hearty vote of thanks for her unceasing
efforts on behalf of the League and the Varsity teams.
We were very pleased to welcome many new players this year,
among them several Education students. It was hoped that a beginner's
team would be formed, but unfortunately it was too late in the year to
arrange games.   Perhaps this will be accomplished next year.
The most enjoyable event of the season was a trip to Duncan, which
it is hoped will be an annual feature.   A Women's and Men's team went

and also a match with Victoria. A Rep team from the league is to be
chosen to play the High School Rep, and it is confidently expected that
U.B.C. will provide many players.
U.B.C. team is now third in the league, with a chance for the cup
if they play their best. Graduations will not affect the teams quite as
much as usual, as first and second year players predominate. The Club
owes the deepest gratitude to the coach, Mr. W. Black, for his support

^UR earth is full of crouching things, and men with shadowed eyes,
Who love their fears and fear their loves, and smother light with lies.
They miss all valiant loveliness with hate of pain and scars—
Look up, ye sorry  earth-born, to the message of the stars!
Coronis sings of glory, and deep Sirius of faith,
The Pleiades are glamoury, Virgo's a silver wraith.
From his far height Polaris sends a grave and glorious call—
But the Southern knight Orion is the greatest of them all!
Orion, great Orion, with his lordly lifted hand;
He calls across the shimmering blue to those who understand.
His messages are chivalry, and gallantry, and fire,
He is the starry soldier, and the lover of the lyre.
"Oh, little comrade, courage now, and leave your darkling fear;
Your tiny world is rolling still, and you and I are here;
Yea, we will still be laughing when your tiny world is gone,
For you and I are stuff that's made of white fire and gold dawn."
Our earth is woeful full of things that should not dare to be,
And yet there is an open way to beauty high and free;
Oh, seek for valiant loveliness, nor shrink at gallant scars—
Look up, ye blind and fearful, to the glory of the stars!
THERE will be a time when you will climb
The stairs no more;
There will be a day, when you will say,
I cannot rise.
That time must come, whate'er is done,
The body is laid down
We close the eyes and hear good-byes,
The world is gone.
Beyond that veil, past all travail,
We cannot see.
And so through strife, which is our life,
We come to Thee.
TCj^ AIRY turrets, light and gleaming,
-"-   On a castle, fairylike;
My quick soul wanders there, teeming
With wonder and delight.
High above the green and lowly vales
Where peasant toilers strive,
Facing blue heaven and snowy gales
The mad king built thee to survive;
Fairy, airy, peaked and gay
Bravely dancing, boldly glancing
In the solar heat and ray,
With thy many myriad steeples tow'ring
In eternal worship to the fiery deity;
Men bereft of all a human's lot of gaiety,
Broke the rocks and sullen gave their all,
Ruined, unhappy, soulless men,
Praying, as they cursed, that thou mightst fall;
But thou perchest, now as then
With the mighty tree-tops as thy floor,
While they lie 'neath the soil,
Their names, unknown to fame, for evermore,
Who made thee with their toil;
Ludwig, mad lover of all that was strange,
Great composers, fairy castles,
Was not content with thee, longing for change,
So new turrets rise on new summits,
And new hands bleed and new eyes swim
For very hopelessness;
Tears and blood all for a mad man's whim
Who listens with eagerness.
While the storms and furies roar
Under a master's hand;
He must have loved thee before
He made his next demand,
For thou wert the pearl of all his love,
Thou and mighty Wagner,
Thou with spires, like the other's thunder, standing above
Lesser, more human things,
Symbol of Germany's romantic past,
Placed, as if some hands divine
Aided those plebian ones who set thee firm and fast
On thy rocky base, Neuschwanstein.
I want no blame or sympathy
Or honest tears or maudlin prayers.
Withdraw and stare not, passerby:
Let me conduct my own affairs.
I will not have my name emblazoned here
For fools to stare at, or foes left behind me
To mock.   Why should I advertise my tomb?
God and my friends and the worms know where to find me.
THE stage is draped with velvet, dark as sleep,
And silence soft as velvet hangs like mist,
When suddenly from far deep backgrounds creep
Slim figures, coming as to keep strange tryst
With fairies, on some far, elf-haunted strand;
A throng of colors—silver and gold-red—
It flows apart.   The leader of each band
Comes forward.
First, bending stately head,
A golden girl in robes of gypsy shades,
Her wide skirts sweeping round her, pirouettes,
Bends low, her colors billowing, and glissades.
Then comes a girl, her dress like some Pierrette's,
Of silver, with a silver wig and shoes,
Who laughs, and, standing poised, waves twinkling hands;
To look at her, all silver, is to muse
On bubbles, rainbows, sunlight on strange sands,
Sea-gulls . . . Then she steps back and smiles,
And with her company fades all away,
And back again, with magic swiftness, files
The golden group, bright as the dawning day.
Now comes a dance of Spanish grace and pride,
A minuet of sweeping golden-reds;
The dancers stately turn and bow and glide,
And bend dark, graceful, gypsy-kerchiefed heads.
The band first forms a sparkling double line,
And two by two the dancers pace it down,
Wreathing it goldly like some magic vine,
And at the end, a bow with billowing gown.
They weave it like a living golden rope,
And twist and inter-twist it, turn, and sweep,
Bend low once more, and let its shining scope
Stretch wider as they separate, yet keep
|im! rw&u*.>--^--WT
The pattern clearly.   Then they swiftly turn,
And, always dancing, fade into the black;
Their figures in the dark like candles burn,
Like golden candles then are all blown back
To nothingness.   And there, alone at last,
Is the slim leader, who now twirls once more,
And stands as though she were a statue, cast
In deep rich gold, then, fading as before,
Slips out, and all that brilliant band has passed.
But now again the stage is swiftly filled
With dancing figures, all in silver clad.
It is like frieze-work by some artist skilled
In works exquisite, fairy-like, and glad.
And now the silver girl who leads them whirls
From out among them, pirouettes again;
And, following her, the band, all shimmering, swirls
Into a dance that shines like summer rain.
Two lines they form, as did the golden group,
And twinkle down the lines on silver toes,
And in and out between them swiftly loop,
While those within the lines, all gleaming, pose,
Until they look like frozen water-sprites,
Stilled in their loveliness until the Spring
Returns, releases, and once more delights
Their opened eyes with sight of her again.
So does the leader, as she skims the line,
Set free the dancers, and their silver chain
Dissolves itself, not now a glistening vine,
But silver ripples, as they whirl in glee,
Are formed—and then, just as the joyous dance
Is loveliest, they vanish magically
Into the darkness, with a backward glance
Of wistful gaiety, all silvery-sad.
The leader poises, and white fingers flirts,
Then fades, her final mood a gesture glad,
A ruffled whirl of shining silver skirts.
^W" OU vague impressions of my spirit's course,
■"■        I blush to tread your tortured paths again;
Old rhymes of mine, O you that once gave pain
To ease a greater anguish, my remorse
Burns not for what I felt, but what you are:
So foul a picture of brave things now far.
I 195 1 fcTHE TOllsM^u^,
DARK shapes and shadows vague;
Gray coasts that loom up in the night.
The strange gleam of beachfire light,
On faces weird about the flame.
Voices near, and sounds afar
That echo through the night.
The little stretch of road ahead
And beyond that the dark,
The all-enfolding night.
YOU stood upon the height with folded arms,
A figure posed in graceful dignity,
And broodingly your eyes surveyed the scene
Of sombre beauty deepening all around;
The dusky scarlet of the western sky
Burning above rough purple mountain peaks—
A few dark clouds—the steely vault above,
Far-flecked with silver stars—and spread below
In twilight calm, the shadowed countryside
From which the stored-up sunset slowly seeped.
You stood upon the height, thus nobly set,
A perfect part of all the beauty there,
Of all the beauty in the universe . . .
And as the last light faded from the hills
It seemed that you must softly vanish too,
Dissolving with the swiftly melting day.
Grief-stricken, then, I flung my body down
Upon the cooling earth, and could not move
Or think, and only felt a hopeless ache
And awesome marvelling . . . until your touch
Roused me to stir and view with joy divine
Your moon-blessed resurrection come to pass.

I 198 J The Bridge of The Gods
|F course, it may be all just imagination on my part. But Rudde is a
civil engineer of the most practical turn of mind; he even takes his
holidays in that prosaic fashion so exasperating to the happy-go-lucky
vacationist who would be a gypsy if he could afford it. And even Rudde
seemed to feel that there was something rather out of the ordinary about
that stranger.
Rudde builds bridges, and though I know nothing about the
practical science of bridge-building, I understand from those who do
that he is good at his job. Several years ago he did a big job in the south
somewhere, and motored north along the coast highway for a holiday.
He was, he averred, intensely unwilling to see, hear, or touch anything
appertaining to his work for months to come. But you know how it is
with these enthusiasts; before half his well-planned, thoroughly enjoyable trip was over, Rudde was longing to be back on the job. He was
travelling at that time through northern Oregon and south-western
Washington—marvellous country, heavily forested, wild, but flecked
with long slopes of green farm-lands. And he discovered that somewhere
along his route a great new bridge was being erected across a difficult
rapids. Of course he had to make camp there and look the layout over,
as he explained later—homesick.
It was a magnificent spot, even according to Rudde's prosaic eye.
The banks were high and jagged, the rapids were swift at that point,
torn and angry. Rudde strolled along the bank about sunset, only
pleasantly tired after a long day of driving. The dark trees were fringed
with gold from the western sunlight, and the river seemed to rustle more
gently. On a little point he stopped, looking up at the new outworks
(or whatever the preliminary foundations of a bridge are called) and
meditating that the contractors had rather a nasty job ahead of them.
It wasn't the first attempt, either. Gray skeletons of buildings and works
were slowly toppling toward the river-bed near the rapids—monuments
of old defeat. Rudde looked at it all, shading his eyes from the long
rays of sun. And suddenly he realized that someone was standing and
watching with him. A very tall, grave-eyed fellow, Rudde noticed—
with a fair beard.
"You interested in construction?" Rudde asked in friendly fashion.
The stranger's eyes were fixed on the big bridge.
"I? Oh— yes— very much." The man seemed concentrated on
something else—his eyes looked through Rudde when he turned to him.
"At least— I was once."
"That's some job they've got there," Rudde continued, wondering
what manner of man this might be.   His companion nodded slowly.

(Continued from Page One Hundred and Ninety-nine)
"You can see they've failed to do the job, and more than once, at
that," Rudde continued, pointing to the deserted remains. "Certainly
is a nasty place, this. But they're swinging it this time. We can get
across most anything now, with the right stuff behind us."
The stranger was looking at some grotesque, broken rocks which
lay as if they had been strewn across the rapids; enormous, jagged things.
(At this point in the tale I almost remembered something. Rudde went
on, however).
"Yes," said the stranger slowly, "There have been many failures
at this task." Then, as if in a burst of confidence, "We tried to do it
ourselves. Surely we might have done it, if anyone could. But— " he
stopped, and looked again at the great bridge, and back at the rock-
strewn rapids.
"They've used the new iron truss there, I see," Rudde was intent
upon the bridge. "I'm telling you, modern engineering is making this
a great day for us builders." He smiled at the stranger, hardly knowing
The stranger said, "Yes, — new things are very wonderful." They
both stared up, while the world dipped into shadow, for the sun had set.
When Rudde looked around again his companion had gone.
*    *    *
"Seems to me— where did you say it was?" I puzzled when Rudde
told me this. "I've seen something about it in a magazine article somewhere; it's been considered quite a stunt, I believe."
"Very ticklish place," Rudde confirmed.
"I remember now. There was a picture of the rapids. Wait a
shake— " I stopped and gasped. "Why, it was called 'The Bridge of
the Gods.' There was a legend about it. The western Gods who came
before the Indians were supposed to have tried to build a bridge there
once, and— failed."
Though Rudde, as I said before, is of a prosaic turn of mind, there
was an odd look in his eyes as he thought about the thing.
But of course, it may be all imagination; and to this day we have
never been quite sure about that Stranger.

[ 206 J The College
By G. H. C.
I PROPOSE to give an impression of a phase of University life which
may be unfamiliar to many readers, namely the college. In these days
it is necessary to observe that the words "college" and "university" are
not synonymous; a college is to a university what an individual family
is to a nation, a united part of a great group. The college, as an idea,
is younger than the university; it arose from the need of fellowship and
discipline. The founders of the Oxford colleges aimed to make possible
a disciplined form of student life, to provide an opportunity for the
best work, to make intellectual comradeship possible under the best conditions for body, soul and mind. The beauty of the Oxford fabrics is a
testimony to their appreciation of aesthetic value in education. Little
groups of men have lived there, passed into the world to be succeeded by
other groups—seven hundred years have elapsed since England tried the
college experiment—it has not failed. In the United States, by a strange
inversion of European experience, the elder universities have arisen
through college foundations.
There is a college on our campus, a representative of a line of
Anglican colleges which extends from Oxford to distant Madras, a scion
of the old family which began in the 12th century with University
College, Oxford.
It does not advertise; the only announcement heard by the busy
world is the tiny note of the bell, ringing to Matins or Evensong. Perhaps the world heeds the bell no more than it does the woodpecker in the
neighbouring clump of firs. The bell rings to its own world, and its
world, hearing, troops down to Chapel; thirty black-gowned figures
kneel in the little room. The reader reads the words of a Hebrew to men
from the distant lands of China, New Zealand, Japan, Wales—"I will
lift up mine eyes unto the hills."
Three thousand years ago that Hebrew had written of his hills in
Judea, but the hills which these men see are the dear hills of home, proud
Fujiyama or Blytch-y-Groes, mountains of Killarney or foothills of the
Cheviots. And, somehow, they have come to a smiling part of great
Canada, all assembled with a common purpose, feeling fellowship as the
reader's voice rises and falls, as the organ's notes invite the blending
voices, while the sunlight reddens the walls.
Such is one expression of college life, perhaps the greatest, certainly
one of the most unifying. The meals in Hall are another. The great
room looks out over the tall Douglas firs, over the blue Gulf to the hills.
The men, under the presidency of the Warden, sit at four long oak
tables. No boarding house could hope to reproduce the atmosphere, the
dignity of the setting, the lively conversation.

The College
(Continued from Page Two Hundred and Seven)
The College is fortunate in having an excellent Common Room, with
the right type of armchairs, and plenty of magazines. A log-fire blazes
on the open hearth, a cheery group of men make merry around the
piano while others lounge or smoke. It is difficult to convey a correct
impression to the men of the University, whose Common Rooms are
decidedly "common:" perhaps the ladies will understand, for our Common Room is like theirs, plus a piano and several pipes (we understand
there are no pipes in the Ladies' Common Rooms!)
Many University students have admired our studies. The neat little
rooms, with their oaken furniture, have a distinct appeal; the individual
can shut the world out and work, whenever he feels inclined. He has a
book-case, wardrobe, chest of drawers, rug, and bed; he may add what he
pleases to these fundamentals. His study ends by becoming a permanent
reproduction of his personality, artistic, athletic or otherwise.
Whether he works or not depends upon himself; he has the opportunity. Besides a well stocked College library (which is available to
University students) he is within five minutes walk of the University
library. He has the advantage of daily contact with senior students and
that under conditions in which they are likely to help him with his
difficulties. He may call on his next door neighbour and get his maths,
straightened out, or his Latin corrected, providing his neighbour is in a
good humour.
One should mention the interminable evening discussions on any
and every subject. Four or more men gather in a study; they sit on the
table or the bed, pipes are lit and from ten to two a.m. the world is
roamed in heated debate. If nothing else results, one's thinking ability
is improved and pet fallacies ruthlessly exposed. This is one of the sides
of community life which medieval founders did not anticipate. Untold
generations of students have evolved its possibilities and privileges; perhaps it began when that "sovereign herb," tobacco, was introduced, and
somehow escaped the clauses of Laudian Statutes and University Reform
Acts! In reading the biographies of so many Oxford men, one is often
told of the discussions in their rooms—the plans they made, the joy of
the battle of wits. The less fortunate student who lives in a boarding
house has no such opportunity, for landladies believe in the dictum of
"sleep, eat or work" and are usually unsympathetic toward midnight
The features which I have described are those which differentiate
life in college from that of the student who lives outside. The Chapel,
the meals in Hall, the cosy Common Room—all these make for real
fellowship.   The unique advantages of an individual study and proximity

to the libraries of college and university render efficient study possible.
With such advantages, there should be a great future for the college.
As yet we have been slow in realising our opportunities, but that slowness
was due to a variety of causes. For example, we have diffused our energies, being content to give our best men to Alma Mater, rather than
restrict their activities by insisting on building our own house first. This
is no place for statistics; you will find their names in the handbook, on
class executives, in track and field athletics, in the musical society, and
in the several clubs of U.B.C.
The future appears bright. We have already completed our Stadium
fund quota, in which achievement Science is our only rival. We are

more and more. In the year 1931-'32 we shall compete in interclass
