BARNEY POTTS AND BAND
WILL BE STARRED IN PEP
MEETING FOR BASKETERS
Pep Club Stages Show in Honor Of Top-
Place Hoop Crew—Team to bo Introduced
-Barney and All His Boys Working On
lntereidng   Programme
Wednesday afternoon tiie Pep Club under Gordie Hilker
and Lyle Stewart will fin! the bell once again when they present lor the entertainment of the students Barney Potts and his
orchestra, undoubtedly tiie peppiest aggregation of rhythm-
dispensers in British Columbia.
the Pep, meeting will once again be in honor of the Senior
"A" Basketball squad, which haa won its last four starts and will
battle With the Adanacs in New Westminster Wednesday night
for  the  definite  settlement  of  tt
place in league standings. Members
of the squad Will be introduced in
an absolutely new manner by the
Peppers and as usual a few yells will
be rehearsed.
"The Pep Club is doing a great
work in endeavoring to re-create a
rooting squad," said Coach Oordon
Allen ln an Interview Sunday, "and
1 am certain that an organized cheering section played a great part in
our overwhelming victory over the
fad Sparling squad a week ago."
The acceptance of Barney Potto of
an invitation to play at a University
Pop Meeting comes as a result of
long negotiations between the Pap
Club and Ihe popular band leader.
Barney is by no means new to tho
student body, having played at a
number of fraternity aad sorority
functions aa wdl as at class parties.
Bera*y Potts is a Vancouver boy

as wett as his abuity to "down" tn
a thoroughly entertaining manner.
Qraduating from King Oeorge High,
he obtained a Job with bis "Sun
Dodgers" at Deep Cove for the summer, and he has been a regular feature there for some years. Lad
summer great crowds of dudents
flocked out to Happyland to dance to
Barney's mudc on "College Night,"
a feature which he inaugurated. For
the present whiter he was switched
by popular demand to Alma Academy, where he plays, leads, and tings
for the Digged dance orchestra ln
town. He has promised an interest-
big program for Wednesday and will
bring out the following men: Charlie
Sea, Harry Hamilton and Brick Henderson, saxophones* Bill Arstad,
trombone; Dick Croft, base; Freddie
Ross, guitar; Billie Duncan, drums;
and Oeorge Hackett, trumpet.
Tne show will get under way at
12:10 sharp.
Prof. Angus Speaks
On Ottawa Confab.
Prof. Angus spoke on the Imperial
Conference at Ottawa at a meeting
of the International Relations Club at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sherwood
Lett. He pointed out that, at the
conference, the British Empire had
been confronted with the choice of
developing into an economic unit or
of seeking foreign connections, ihe
conference, he thought, had left both
of these policies open. Mr. Angus
was of the opinion that the result
of the coming world economic conference would decide which policy
the empire would adopt in the future. The meeting was then concluded after tho serving of refreshments.

Dr. Shrum Talks
On Cosmic Rays
Valuable Research Being Carried Out By Local Students
"In the past two years there has
been so much research done on the
Cosmic Bay that no one really knows
what it is but we expect to know
within two or three years," stated
Dr. Shrum, preddent of the Vancouver Institute, in a lecture upon "The
Nature and Origin of Cosmic Rays"
on Saturday night.
Arts 100 was paoked to the doors
and although seating for an extra sixty
people was arranged some of the audience graced the floor and window dlls.
Ronald Smith and Tom How demonstrated apparatus that they have been
working on in the laboratory. The Institute had the novel experience of
"listening" to Cosmic Rays as well as
seeing the tracks made by alpha particles shot from radium.
"The name 'Cosmic Ray' is a very
poor term for it suggests that we know
that the rays come from cosmic space
and that they are rays. On the contrary all that we know is that they
are produced somewhere at some time
and that the process is going on now
or it Isn't and they are produced
either by the formation or disintegration of atoms.
The certainty of their existence is
determined by the fact that "when
an electroscope is charged it's leaves
move apart and then slowly come together again." A ray of some sort is
necessary for this to occur. Experimenters have worked with ice instruments on frozen lakes, ten miles high
in the sky, in water at noon and at
midnight and have been unable to
insulate the electroscope against the
penetrating power of these rays. Their
results have shown that (1) The rays
are very pentrating. (2) The rays are
the same in all parts of the world, (3)
Their potency is the same in all directions. (4) They have a spectrum,

STUDENT CROWD AT
UMVESSITY Em
Two hundred couples filtered out
of the Crystal Ball Room of the,
Hotel Vancouver Friday night after
the first major social function of the
Fall term. All concerned expressed
the opinion that the affair was a
decided success.
Honesty mud have descended upon
Varsity studenta in a regular avalanche, for someone returned a dollar
bill that he had found. Only one
person daimed it.
After the Grand March, guests and
patrons adjourned to the Oak Room
where sandwiches, cakes, coffee and
ice-cream were the order of intermission.
Harold King and his palpitating
playmates provided the syncopation.
Waltzes were more frequent than
usual, and the innovation met with
the approval of the crowd Judging

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22,1932
THE BEAB AWAKES
With a record of victories to their credit, two smiling Britons stepped off a C.N.R. train this morning and sniffed Vancouver's bracing air, felt the soft patter of rain, and heaved a
sigh of relief that there was no snow.
Tonight they face the best that B. C. can produce in the
way of forensic material*
For years debating aeemg to have been hibernating somewhere, and now lt is stretching its limbs, and emitting a few
preliminary grunts and groans preparatory to sallying forth
from its hidden lair in full vitality again. Last year, U.B.C. won
Its first intercollegiate debate for a number of years, and tonight
thire is a chance to repeat the performance.
Two years of the Parliamentary Forum under the able leadership of Professor J. Friend Day have aroused some students
to the realization that debates can be interesting both from the
point of view of the audience and the participants.
For some years now, students have no* had the opportunity
of listening to the British style which has been described as "inimitable," "polished," "full of delightful humor and caustic wit,"
by Various papers across Canada. We do not presume to say
that Perry and Dryer can outshine their worthy opponents, but
we can say that they intend to put up a good fight, and a good
fight is always worth seeing.
On the CoUege Audience
It must be quite an experience for city artists to perform
in the University Auditorium.
One would like to know just
what their reaction is to a student audience.
I was pondering on this at
the Madrigal Concert which
the Musical Society sponsored
last Thursday. I wondered if
the singers had ever had such
a tumultous house before. Yet
the audiences which frequent
recitals are mouse-like in comparison" with the wild enthusiasts who frequent Pep Meetings.
I should think that if they
could successfully conquer their
annoyance and trepidltation at
the yells and missiles with
which the gathering celebrates
its convocation, they might
even appreciate the undoubtedly large degree of receptive-
ness and enthusiasm of a college audience. Somewhat overwhelming, it ought to be inspiring!
Katharis and Pep Meetings
It is with great satisfaction
that I use that awe-inspiring
word in the title above; satisfaction and a feeling of intense
superiority, owing to the fact
that I can not only spell it (two
ways, at that), but I know what
it means. It was the mention of
Pep Meetings, strange to say,
which brought it to mind.
Strange, because this term is
one used by Aristotle in his
definition of tragedy, neither of
these subjects are especially
reminiscent of Pep Meetings.
However, some authorities*
interpretations of the word
seem to indicate that katharsis
is a sort of purging of emotions
through the witnessing of such
drama as interprets the inner
feelings of the spectators. Thus
Pep Meetings have a distinct
therapeutic and paralogical
value.
I intend to submit this theory
in thesis form when I apply
for my Ph.D. In addition, it
gives me some grand new epithets to apply to rah-hah gatherings.
Shift to Light Opera
To continue in an artistic
Strain, I hear that it has been
decided that the Musical Society will put on another Gilbert and Sullivan piece—probably "Iolanthe"—this spring. It
is heart-warming news, although I had been developing
a yen to see "Patience" before
I graduated; "The Gondoliers",
too, has been suggested, as one
of the prettiest of G. and S. airy
nothings.
Not that I consider the works
of those two great men as airy
nothings, not by any means.
Some day I shall write a real
eulogy on Gilbert and Sullivan.
In a world as bleak as this,
it's a very heartening thing to
remember that there is always
a Gilbert and Sullivan opera in
it somewhere.
It is kind of the Musical Society to give us from year to
year a frivol of such portent to
look forward to.
Getting Dramatic
0. O. is simply stage-struck
this week. Probably it is owing
to the rigorous series of rehearsals to which the writer has
lately been submitted.
"No, no, that's not right! Put
more DRAMA into it," and the
Herr Direktor gives forth in a
magnificent basso the lines
which when delivered by me
become a squeaking travesty.
It is all because of the Great
Event which is coming off in
the latter half of this week. No
student of the drama should
miss this opportunity of viewing free of charge the most ree-
markable presentation of high
tragedy, sparkling comedy, bewildering mystery, gorgeous
gowns, all-round actors and act-

(And Opening the Season)
Being as this is the last time
O. O. will observe until next

to formally open the season)
with the first "Merry Christmas" of the year.
Vardty toasts, Varsity songs, Vardty friendships; all these were revived in the private dining room of
the Crown Point Hotel in Trail,
when thirty-six graduates of U.B.C.
gathered from all parts of West
Kootenay for the third annual reunion banquet of the Wed Kootenay
branch of the U.B.C. Alumni.
Followlgn the toad to the King,
Toastmaster Mickey Thomas ('3D,
called on Maxlne Chapman C30), to
propose the toad to "Our Alma
Mater." Miss tnapman, a member of
the committee for the dinner, congratulated those present on the large
attendance and stressed the necessity
of an annual reunion. In responding,
J. S. C. "Tubby" Fraser ('»),
thought that graduates should do all
they could to influence public opinion in favour Of the Unlverdty.
Cdled upon to toad "The Ladies,"
Don McLean C29), could remember
the time when ladies held an important place in his life. While this was
not dill the case ,the speaker con-
ddered it a great tribute to the fair
sex that at all the many stag banquets which he had attended the talk
eventually turned to the subject of
ladies. Barbara Lang C29), replied
to this toad mentioning the difficult
but succesdul work of committees of
previous banquets. Rev. Wallace
C20), spoke briefly on the recommendations ot the Kidd Report Insofar as they affected the University.
He suggested a statement from the
group as being opposed to the closing of the Institution. Mickey Thomas read a letter from Helen Crawford of the coad Alumni urging that
the Society do all ln its power to
bring the work of the University before the public. The toastmaster endorsed the opinions contained ln the
letter and asked for suggestions as to
how these could be carried out.
Jack Maodondd ('3D, Frank Meagher C29), and Mrs. C. D. Stevenson
C28), were elected as committee for
the forthcoming year. The retiring
committee composed of Mickey
Thomas, Maxlne Chapman and Barbara Lang were given a hearty vote
of thanks for the work done during
the past season. Mention was also
made of the good work done by
Roland Graham C24), and J. S. C.
Fraser.
The program of the evening was
interspersed with the singing of Varsity songs under the leadership of
Jack Macdonald. These had a decided Science flavour, "Drink, Drink,
Drink," and "Mr. Noah" proving the
most popular.
Following the singing of the National Anthem the gathering adjourned to attend the Saturday night dance
of the Trail Cinderella Club.

WHY THIS MEDIOCRITY?
Since artistry is usudly discarded in
favor of less exacting requirements, it
remains for us In reviewing mod
Hollywood productions, to distinguish
between shades of mediocrity. But
why should this be? Is lt because the
theatre-going public are all potential morons and are satidied with
any sort of tripe?
Who is responsible, the scenario
writers, who rehash any half-decent
play or novel and then give ua all
a first-class "tummy ache"? The self-
styled "moguls"—who drive their coffee mills to the limit in grinding out
their quota of five hundred films a
year—sacrificing quality for quantity; or the public, who bear the ultimate cost of the whol mushroom
film colony? We leave It to you.
AT THE ORPHEUM
Wheeler and Woolsey show up again
in "Girl Crazy." This pair are fairly
amusing when seen for the first time,
mildly boring for the second, but
oh. the third! A bottle of beer that
has been opened for about one hour
and then consumed gives one a bad
taste in the mouth—so do Wheeler and
Woolsey. The Georgian Minstrels,
however, appear In the nature of an
antidote to the feature picture, and
though they are nothing to set the
world on fire, still they offer a far
better brand of entertainment than
usually appears. A hot Dixie band,
some volcano dancing, and a collection
of good songs. Interesting, if you like
this sort of thing.
THE BEACON
The picture "The Last Goal" has
been well received at this theatre, as
it deserves, for it really is very good.
Among the audience Friday night were
seen about seventy Varsity students,
and Percy Williams, who seems to
know a good thing when he sees it.

Golf Tournament
With the annual match with the
Washington Huskies drawing near,
those who have ambition to make the
golf team are out in full force practising up with their mashles. Several members of last year's team are
available, and with a dozen promising new members, the team's chances
of copping this match are very good.
The most promising of the new members Is Sandy Marling who hails
from Victoria. Sandy is capable of
shooting par golf and is probably the
most outstanding junior player in
the Capital city. Ted Charlton and
Charlie McCadden will most likely
team up together, and the opposition
to this team wul have a hard tlm* to
garner points.
Some Sunday ln the near future
the Vanity team will take on the
Quilchena mashie-wielders. This
should be a good match as both
teams will be evenly matched.
So far In the annual handicap
tournament there have been no upsets. Tho weather has been very adverse to good golf. The cards handed in have not been exceptiond although severd have been in the low
seventies.
Junior Soccer Team
Loses to Kerrisdale
Junior Soccer suffered another defeat Saturday, this time at the hands
of the strong Kerrisdde squad. The
score was 5-2. Owing to the absence
of Manager Rod McLeod, who was
playing for the Seniors, and of Ted
Oleave, who was dek, the Juniors
presented a somewhat weakened lineup. In spite of this fad eleven men
took the field, and had much more
of the play than the score Indicates.
The first half saw Kerrisdale pressing most of the time, and scoring
from a pendty kick, a corner, and
a hard "drive from dose in. In the
second canto Vardty showed a
marked improvement, scoring two
goals to their opponents three. Cec.
Ramsden, rebound artist, netted the
ball twice for U.B.C. in this period.

Kampus Bolshevik
Today I would like to suggest another improvement in the campus.
I do nd see why we should have to
go to the professors we do. Professors should be dected, not born.
A committee of students, composed
mainly of Honor students from all
departments should pass judgment
every year on the Faculty. Those
who allowed thdr courses to be dull
should be immediatdy struck off the
Roll. And those whoso courses were
interesting should be dlowed to lee*
ture for a further year.
After all, it is the students who
take the lectures. Therefor* I do
not see why some person who does
not take the lectures should appoint
these lecturers. No doubt-in fact
I shall say without doubt—these professors we have here are almost with*
out exception brilliant men in their
line, but—and here is the crux of
the matter—can they impart thdr
knowledge to their students? If they
cannot .then ...
But I hear you say, students should
be shown the road. It should not be
necessary for them to be taught.
Quite! I was wdting for you to
say that! The foregoing paragraphs
are dl part of a deeply laid plot to
induce you to say that. I admit your
statement. Students should be shown
the road and hot be spoon-fed.
But, my friends, where does that
lead us to? Why, very obviously to
the conclusion that professors are
not needed at the University. Jud
a minute whue I wipe the froth off
my lips.
Indeed of professors, we would
have dudent presidents of each class.
This preddent would take charge at
the beginning of the year, and read
out to the class the names of the
textbooks. The class would then
meet two or three times a week, and
discuss their work. By such means
courses would gain in interest. There
would be retained in each department an expert who knew all about
the work, who could be cdled on to
solve dl knotty problems that baffled the class.
Our slogan—to be rendered in a
crescendo scream . . .
"A University of the students, by
the students, from the students, witn
the  students, for the students."
Here is the Doctor in bed with the
flu. Look closely and you oan so*

Lose On Saturday
Last year's league winners "The
Crusaders," defeated the University's
second team, "U.B.C." 5-3, in a well
fought game at Connaught Park on
Saturday. The play opened briskly
with a series of rushes by the U.B.C.
forwards who were keeping the play
open with good passing. During one
of these Vance netted the ball for
U.B.C. with a quick dash into the
goal mouth. Crusaders then scored,
following which, Miller, coming from
outside, put the ball through again
for U.B.C. When "Crusaders" again
scored twice U.B.C. began to feel
the lack of a god keeper.
In the second half U.B.C. forwards
agdn pressed drongly but the "Cm
seders" experience ot the game en
abled them to put up a strong de
fense.   Davidson, however, shot one
goal for U.B.C. In a scrimmage round
the goal.   Before the whistle, "Cru
saders"  added   two   more   to   their
totd making the final score 5-3.
The U.B.C. as a whole played well
Davidson showed skill and energy
at centre forward but tended to get
out of place. Boisjoll was a tower of
strength at centre hau while Black-
dler played a brilliant game at full
back.
Line-up: Miller, Vance, Davidson,
Maxwell, Brenner, Boisjoll, Armstrong, Blackaller, Chave, Disney.

Dune, was the first to recuperate
ond grabbing a wet towel he began
to fan me.
"Rub, don't blot!" I screamed when
he began dabbing my forehead with
the towel. "Where did Suey go?" I
queried, "and what put us to deep?"
"By close and diligent examination
of these footprints I have discovered
that Suey didn't want to stay and
Suey went away. He headed for the
quad, according to these tracks," 'answered the detective, "but why we
went to sleep is beyond me—at the
moment"
"Let us make tracks too," I suggested. And away we went with
noses pointed towards the centre of
the campus.
Irish History
"This deeping problem reminds me
of the Domnible case in Ireland in
1923. nundreds of Irishmen went to
deep for no apparent reason. I investigated and found that they had
all attended a bricklayer's ball the
night before. Were you at a ball
last night?" Dune asked me.
"Dune esk," I retorted. "By the

venerable heads of our superannuated

now that I come to think of lt!" I
exclaimed.
Dr. Sedgwick At BaU
"Et mol, aussi," said Eetit ln his best
Italian. '"Twas the Unlverdty Ball.
I was one of the patrons. Dr. Sedgewick and myself whiled away the
time seeing who could stare the
other out. It was quite trying. My
opponent would call time out at the
proper moment, rub his face in his
hands, and return to the fray with
more spirit and gusto than before.
"The strain became unbearable. I
had to do something so I took out
my dark-colored glasses and put
them on. And then the lights went
out for a moonlight waltz. I couiun't
see a thing. The lights came on
again. The head of the English department was gone. Everybody was
gone. Someone tapped me on the
shoulder. 'Move your chair, please,
I want to sweep under it'."

"I was there, too, I said, "and did
I have a good time. What hands,
what a face, what divine moments!
And speaking of figures! "

Dune. "Llt's get back to Chang

Influenza
VSe
McHootch
Maintaining that the cure of influenza was a simple matter if his
instructions were carried out to the
letter, Dr. Oargle McHootch deliberately contracted the troublesome disease lad Saturday ln order to prove
his point. Reports early this morning say that the doctor is able to dt
up in bed and read the Vancouver
News without collapsing.
His cure, which he guarantees to
be effective, Involves numerous details which wiU be listed below:
If you think you are going to have
the flu, be nonchalant, smoke a
Murad. Don't bo in a hurry to cure
it.  Wdt till you catch it.
When you do eventually get lt,
dtber stop breathing or keep your
mouth shut. This step hu some vary
far-reaching results.
Eat spinach. Eating spinach will
take anything out of a man.
If you feel tired, go to bed. Taxe
your temperature. If it is M or 100,
that is almost perfect. If it.Is over
100 either you or the nurse cheated.
Keep a chart at the foot of your
bed.   By interpolating and so forth
you can tell when you are going to'
die.
Oat out an insurance policy before
that date.
If you show signs of improvement
take some patent medicine. This will
keep you tn till after the exams.
For severe cases keep one foot in
hot water, the other in cold. Change
every few minutes. When'they are
perfectly clean, dry them and go to
bed.   Feel better?
In a specid Interview with The
Ubyssey on Sunday while he was

along fine until they started eating'
apples.

All-Black Ruggermen
Outplay Blue and Gold
Fifteen 6-0 Saturday
BMMM-MMW^MMM^HeMSMSMSHBMI
North Shore Squad Scintillates in Every Department To Win Game and Create Three-
Way Tie in Tisdall Cup SeriitMlrott.
Cleveland Star For Varsity
By J1MMIE MOYES
A gallant rugger fifteen were out-played and out-generalled
in all departments by a classy All-Black aggregation on Saturday afternoon at the Point, when they guifared a 6-0 defeat,
thereby creating a three-way tie tor Tisdall leadership. Both
teams found the dry turf a welcome change, and as a result,
handling was of a high order, and the play, speedy.
But With five of her stars—Art Mercer, Vic Rogers, Brent
Brown, Jack Ruttan, and Strat Leggatt—on the side-lines, Var-
arrity found it mod difficult to oop*f -   ''
with brilliant thrusts ot tiie North
Shore threes, headed by Roxborough
and Kinnimont. The game was by
far the bod of the day—unexpected
cuts, interceptions, breaks and
sweeping bacwield runs all combined to produce thrill after thrill
for the fair' crowd.
Gross Bod For U. B. C.
Playing his first year for Vardty,
Bob Gross, driving freshman forward, tackled, dribbled and passed
like an Internationd, to prove without doubt that he is a valuable ac-
quidtion to the team. He waa ably
backed by Harry Pearson and Bill
Robbins, both of whom were a constant thorn in the dde of the All-
'    Cleveland Again
Howie Cleveland, fhat youthful veteran, was in every play, now diving
through for long gains, new defending with a sure foot and a steady
hip. Popular with th* crowd, his
powerful running and deadly tacKiihg
brought repeated applause from the
riahda.
Varsity kicked off, and Carey returned with a looping punt. A Mercer-Cleveland play waa good for
twenty yards. Beautiful work by
North Shore back carried U.B.C. into
thdr own 25, but Pearson dribbled
thirty yards for a nice clearance.
Senkler and) Brown carried the bdl
another twenty yards, but a penalty
recalled th* play.
A thrilling 3-run by Varsity backs
nearly resulted in a try, but a powerful North Shore defense held. Then
came a succession of All-Black backfield runs, culminating in a score by
Wooten. It went unconverted, aa
Carey was attempting a difficult
angle.
imeteeption By Young
Shortly after the Intervd, a trick
play by North Shore nearly proved
fatal to them, when Esson Young
intercepted a pass by Carey, to run
•) yards, only to be downed by
Greenwood with five* yards to go. It
was the bed thrill of the afternon,
bringing the stands to their feet.
A kick and a follow-up by Owen
carried U.B.C. deep Into enemy territory, but Fraser, All-Black fullback, deared with a long kick. Vardty three-quarter runs were marred
by fumbles on the part of Ddton
and Owen, and as a result, many vd-
uable chances were lod. Pearson's
work as breakaway, and Gross' and
Morris* play in the pack, featured
this half.
Second All-Black Score
Superior punch and that strange
North Vancouver incentive once
again put Varsity on the defensive.
A clever run by Roxborough resulted in a five-yard scrum. A blind
side play, Carey to Mercer, gave
North Shore three more points, and
put the game on ice so far as they
were concerned. Sporadic thrusts by
the Blue and Gold outfit did not
net them anything, and the game
ended in midfield with Varsity in
possession.
The Varsity lineup: Brand, Dalton.
Owen, Cleveland, Young, Mercer,
Tye, Morris, Gross. Robbins, Mitchell,
Sparks, D. Brown, Senkler, and
Pearson.

Boys Draw
In Contest
In the roughed game that Vardty
has taken part In this season South
Burnaby managed to eke out a 1-1
draw against the Blue and Oold el-
oven at Central Park on Saturday.
The Suburbanites won the toss and,
knowing the peculiarities of the Central Park field, chose to kick up-hui.
Taking advantage of the dedded
dope Vardty assumed the offendve
from the start but their opponents
came back strongly and for th* flrd
fifteen minutes play was evenly distributed. Prom then on Varaity
dominated the game until half-time.
Munday drew fird-blopd for tho Students from dose in about half-way
through this period. Ho scored again
a few minutes later on a very pretty
bit of play from the right wing, but
the referee ruled the goal off-dde. It
was a tough break for Vardty, no
apparent infringement of the off-
dde rule having taken place.
Game.Gets Bough
After the red period tiie Burnab-
ians started with a determined rush
which for a while Vardty found difficult to stave off. Iventually tho
Students found their fed and
launched organized counter-attacks,
ln which Dave Todd was very prominent. Russ Stewart was tripped
rather obviously and the ref. blew
bis whistle, but the offender was In
a scrapping mood and had to be
quietened down. Up to this moment
only a small number of 'minor offences had been committed by players of both ddes, but now an epidemic of more serious ones threat-
died to break out. Dave Todd figured in another brawl and, after
some of the opposing slayers and
spectators had scrambled off his back,
was warned by the officials. A
couple of less exciting duels followed
and when the dud had cleared Bur-
naby's centre - forward, Thompson,
hooked a high ball wdl over bis
head from jud lnride the pendty
area and the bdl floated obediently
out of Frattinger's reach into the
goal.
From this point the game speeded
up tremendously, both teams exerting their efforts to the utmost, but
neither succeeded ln obtaining the
winning  counter.
Varsity's line-up: McGill and Legg;
Stewart, Kozoolin, and McLeod;
L. Todd, Munday, D. Todd, Cooke.

two baskets from well out. Bardsley replied a minute later, but Vardty failed to tie the score when they
missed four shots from dose ln. Finally Nicholson broke through to tie
the game up, but Province took a
