No. 5
By Forum
With much mordant wit and parliamentary sarcasm in evidence the
affirmative was upheld at the first
meeting of the Parliamentary Forum
In Arta 100 Tuesday evening. Prof.
J. Friend Day, the "speaker," announced that the resolution, "Resolved that Democracy is suited to
tunes of prosperity only," was passed
by a vote of 29 to 21. More than
twenty members of the house spoke
on the subject.
Appeared With Industrial Revolution
The affirmative was led by John
Conway. He declared that it did not
matter what type of government was
In power during prosperous times.
Democracy, he said, appeared with
the Industrial Revolution and the new
business cycles of prosperity and depression. He charged that these regular depressions were an outcome of
the coming of Democracy,
the inefficieuey of representative
government cannot be denied, asserted Conway. Every member of the
legislature Is trying to please his own
constituents and not worrying about
the country as a whole. Large Public
Works bills are passed through pres-

Another Blow
To Tradition
The annual Cairn Ceremony will
probably be abolished through lack
of student support," said Murray Mather, president of the A.M.S., to no
more than 40 yawning Freshmen and
Freshettes at the cairn last Tuesday
"This cairn haa beneath it the signatures of ovwr 86,000 people who
signed a petition to stir the B.C. Government to commence work on the
present University site," continued
Mather. 'It symbolises the spirit of
that time and should be an Incentive
to us to live up to the standards of
school spirit 3et by those students of
more than a decade ago."
Summary of History
The President gave a short summary of the history of the U.B.C.
The first step lr the founding of a
University was the affiliation of the
Vancouver High School with McGill
In 1889. The University opened in
1915 on the ste of the present General
Hospital. After the student campaign
for action in 1923-28, the present
buildings were first used in the latter
"The history of our institution has
been made by the women as well asj
the men," declared Claire Brown,
president of the W.E.S. "During the
long campaign and the building of the
cairn women worked exceedingly
Women's Union Building
"To-day there Is an urgent need
for the Women's Union Building. We
need a social center on the Campus
instead of down town," she continued.
"If the students of 1934 coiuj} start a
movement towards the erection of
this building they would be carrying
out in full the tradition started by
the students of 1923. There are signs
of better signs coming and when these
become stronger we should get to
work on this new campaign."
At the conclusion of the speeches
the assembly adjourned to the cafeteria where the rolls and coffee prepared for 200 were consumed by the
forty faithful freshies.
Folk Song and Dance
Festival Coining
Old Hungarian melodies, French
chansons, a Spanish orchestra, Scandinavian dances, and a group of famous Hebrew Singers will all contribute to the entertainment provided by
an International Festival of folk-
music to be held in the Hotel Georgia
on the evenings of Oct. 17 to 20 inclusive.
The Festival is being held under
the direction of Mrs. J. T. McCay,
with tho assistance of Mr. F. X. Ves-
elsky and Baron von Wittgenstein.
Instruments of all kinds will be featured—the Hungarian violin virtuoso,
Mr. Jean de Rlmanoczy, and the outstanding concert pianist, Miss Hanna
Lund, are expected to enhance the
program with their musical offerings.
During the coming month about
thirty races will hold an exhibition
of Art and Handicraft in connection
with the Festival. Excellent displays
of ancient culture—embroideries, pottery, basketry, »nd carvings—are anticipated.

No Quorum
No Meeting
In postponing the semiannual Alma Mater meeting
until next Wednesday, Murray
Mather expressed the hope
that University students would
in future display more interest
in student affairs, or at least
enough to provide a quorum at
the next meeting. All one
o'clock lectures will be can*
celled on October 17 in order
to give the meeting ample time
to conduct all its business.
The Vancouver Symphony Society
has announced tha the Symphony Orchestra may be forced to disband if
it is unable to raise twelve thousand
dollars, the objective of the Society's
drive during October.
In thc past the Society has made
up the deficit incurred on each concert through contributions from a
few private citizens; but it is felt
that this is altogether the wrong basis
on which to operate.
Beginning of Organisation
The Society was first formed in
1919. The Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Green, gave concerts
until' 1922, when lack of funds forced
it to break up. It was re-organized
in 1929 under the direction of Allard
de Ridder.
Mr. de Ridder began tbe study of
music in Holland, his native land.
From there he went to Cologne,
where he studied conducting under
Fritz Steinbach, famous conductor
and friend of Brahms. For some
years he conducted at tiie National
Opera in Amsteidam, after which he
came to America to become a member of the Los Angeles Symphony
Orchestra. Mr. de Ridder took up
his residence in Vancouver last year.
The Orchestra has acquired as concert-master Jan de Rlmanoczy, who
played as guest artist last year at
one of their concerts. Mr. de Rim-
anoczy, formerly of Edmonton, has
studied under Hubay, a prominent

Green hats off! Likewise green ribbons and green stockings. Three rousing cheers for the class of '38. Freshman and
freshette alike saw the end of that tortuous grind known as the
freshman initiation period around ten o'clock last night, when
they formally gave high school days the gate and entered the
blue and gold portals of the University of British Columbia as
full-fledged undergraduates.
Council Considers
Campus Budgets
The Frosh Reception is to receive
no grant from Council, it was decided
at a meeting of the Student's Council
on Tuesday evening.
Various budgets were considered
during the meeting. The Frosh
Smoker was to receive costs of 179.70.
Varsity ic to ask for an equal split
of the Big Four profits, Council decided.
The expense account for the Canadian Rugby Club, submitted by Jack
Mllburn, to take care of the Washington State Normal Game is to be
reduced to $7.00 as budgeted. The
Senior Manager of the Canadian Rugby Club was granted permission to
invite Ivor L. Moe to coach the Canadian Rugby Team until Nov. 24.
Irregular Courses
Changed By Sat
It has been called to the attention
of the Registrar that several students
have selected fer themselves courses
that are not in conformity with Calendar regulations. The rules in reference to the courses open to students In the different years are clear,
and students must choose their courses on their own responsibility, though,
if any student it In doubt, all possible
information and assistance will be
given to him on request*
A complete list of courses for First
and Second Year students is given on
pages 58 and 59 of the Calendar, and
the regulations in regard to these are
set forth on pages 57 to 60; no other
courses are open to First and Second
Year students. A full statement of
the requirements in reference to the
selection of pass courses in Third
and Fourth Years is given on pages
60 and 61, and the regulations in regard to "Examinations and Advancement" on pages 79 to 81. (These regulations govern students registered in
the Faculty of Arts and Science; corresponding regulations governing students cf other Faculties appear in
their respective portions of the Calendar) .
A few students whose applications
for registration have been accepted
have not filled in their registration
booklets. To avoid penalty of late
fee these students must complete
their registration at once.
The last day for changing courses
is Saturday, Oct. 13.
Waist'Low Skirts
Startle Campus
At Baby Party
"Baby days are here again," was
the theme song of the Freshette supper in the Cafeteria on Wednesday
evening. Freshettes in rompers, in
shorts or in scanty dresses, carrying
dolls and teddy-bears, thronged the
tables. For the evening Big Sisters
assumed the roles of mothers and
gamed much practice in tying on bibs
and cutting meat, for the baby freshettes ate their suppers with spoons.
And the Supper! Such quanties of
salad, such delectable Ice-cream and
cake not to montion cunning animal-
crackers, huge fuckers and POP!
Infants Perform
Having consumed far too much
food the fond mothers settled down
to watch their aear offsprings perform. Unlucky 13! As the roll was
called each thirteenth freshette was
called upon to entertain the party.
The Caf. re-echoed to the lines of
"Little Boy Blue," and "Jack Spratt"
as nursery rhymes were repeated by
the babies.
Group Orchestra
At last the groups dramatic talent
was exhausted, and Joe Henning took
charge of the party. Accompanied by
an orchestra of two combs and three
honrs Joe led the girls through a long
list of songs and yells. At no rugby
game have the girls entered so spiritedly into the yelling, and the resulting sounds were deafening, especially
when interspersed with thc loud bangs
of breaking balloons. But the babies
must retire early, so promptly at 8
o'clock the mothers sent them home
to bed.
<f>        Draped Upper Classmen
While upper-clessmen draped themselves around the edge of the dance
floor, the verdant herd filed two by

The first arch was painted In tho
colors of all the high schools in town,

Russian  Experiment
To Be Discussed
The Vancouver Institute will commence it* 18th season on Saturday,
Oct. 13, with a lecture in the Auditorium tit 8:15 p.m. The Rev. Willard
Brewing, D.D, will address the meeting on the subject, "The Future of
Europe and the Russian Experiment."
The Rev. Brewing is well qualified
to speak on this subject, having spent
the summer touring Europe with a
number of other prominent educationalists The i arty, being provided
with special facilities, was able to
make an intensive survey of European condition:;, and owing to the
general interest shown in the Russian
experiment spent much time studying its results.
A large attendance is expected at
this meeting due to the controversy
aroused by  the Rev.  Brewing when
Two fellowships, Issued from Glrton

Soothing Syrup
By The Campus Crab
Notes on policy, logic, facts and consistency of
argument, as applied to editors and editorials.
THROUGH professional loyalty I have long
allowed the preversion and inanities of my
superiors to pass unchallenged, but the second
editorial in last Friday's issue has at last forced
me to break silence.
Under the guise of gentle ridicule of traditional academic dress this insidious article is
a deliberate and pernicious attack on the physical, the mental and the moral standing of
my fellow students.
Had it displayed only the usual editorial
stupidity without malice; had it contained only
the usual unreasoning prejudice witheut deliberate untruth; had it even confined itself to
the usual senseless violence instead of resort'
ing to calculated treachery, I might have con
tinued to suppress my just indibnation.

small endowment of poise and good breeding
it is so well calculated to enhance, and because
they refuse to sacrifice the imaginary advantages of vulgar ostentation* and flashy display
of which the universal use of the aristocratic
but modest gown will deprive them.

The student body to date has shown an unfortunate lack of interest in the affairs of the
Alma Mater Society. On Tuesday only three
hundred felt sufficiently concerned to vote in
the junior member election, and Wednesday
the attendance at the Alma Mater meeting
called for that day was so small that the meeting had to be postponed to next Wednesday.
It is easy to understand that students are
not at all enthusiastic about attending Alma
— - , A, muot, _„_ .Mater meetings, particularly on these bright

forced to resort to the only available but iU- ^        ^ nece t0 the conduct of the
chosen weapon of senseless ridicule—senseless
because based on fallacies, and ill-chosen because supported-by falsehood.
_ . _ . If we examine the argu-
BHnd1 Sta ments in ^ editorial under
Buna staggers discussion these characteristics are obvious, and its reflections on the
students of this university are immediately apparent.
The first statement pictures us as having
reached that point of physical deterioration
and valetudinarianism that regards "it essential to wear coats" in passing through the corridors and across the campus. If we are such
.-anemic milksops as to require more bodily protection than the most aged and venerable of
our professors see fit to adopt, then let us
not wear gowns. What we need are nice little
pink bed-sox and hot water bottles.
The second unwarranted assumption regards undergraduates as such unwieldy and
blundering victims of locomotor ataxia that
they are unable to manoeuvre a gown through
a door. Aside from the undeniable fact that
it is a physical impossibility to catch a regulation gown on the type of round door-knobs
used in the university buildings, as any one
interested may prove for himself by a simple
experiment, the reflection on the social achievements of a group of people who are supposed
to be past the age of slobbering their porridge
over their bibs and using their feet solely for
obstructing traffic is one not lightly to be
passed over.
"At least one hand must be used to clutch
the gown if it is to stay on."—a rather quaint
idea of a gown, to say the least. In direct
refutation we may cite the case of one well
known faculty member who has mastered the
technique of the gown to such perfection that
occasionally appears to be wearing an apron
hind side before, and yet has never been observed "clutching it" in fear of losing it completely. As a matter of fact, no other known
garment has the adhesive qualities of the gown
while retaining anything like the flowing and
graceful lines.
Speak On,
Fair One!
The last' and most serious reflection on the student body is the
accusation of being ready to burst
into unseemly profanity whenever the gown becomes caught on anything. We may overlook
the basic falsehood of suggesting that a gown
which is too short to be trodden on, and too
severely tailored to be readily caught on anything, is going to be continually hung up on
door-knobs that too smooth and round to catch
anything less sticky than flypaper, and deal
with the moral standard implied existing
among the undergraduates.
On second thought, it does not need to be
dealt with. It merely needs to be pointed out
to such readers that have missed it, that the
editor in question suggests that any young lady
who gets caught on a door-knob is going to
stand unblushingly in the midst of the dense
stream of traffic that passes in our academic
halls, drop her books, tear her hair, shake her
fists -in the air, and announce in a loud voice
meetings are necessary
business of the society. And if the students
wish to retain the present system of government they will have to go to them whether they
like them or not.
It is not fair to the members of Council to
compel them to postpone meetings from time to
time, as they have enough worries on their
minds. If the undergraduates are not in favor
of a system whereby Alma Mater meetings are
necessary twice a year they should pass an
amendment to the constitution to that effect.
It is certain that Council will not offer any
But if they insist on retaining their right to
a direct vote in the affairs of the society, it is
very poor sportsmanship for them to impede
the efforts of Council by refusing to turn out
for two meetings in the whole year.

There will be an important business

Monday at 12:10 in Room 206 to arrange for future open meetings.
The perennial crop of cigarette packages,
candy and chewing gum wrappers and scraps
of paper of various descriptions is now making
its appearance on our campus, as a result of
the thoughtlessness of some students.
It is indeed a pity that a campus as beautiful as our own should be subjected to such
treatment. Considering the meagre funds
which are at present available for grounds
maintenance we should be very proud of our
lawns and boulevards, and it is a small request
to make of students to ask them merely to refrain from throwing their waste papers around
carelessly. There are several containers conveniently situated for the depositing of all trash.
We do not believe that the students who
are responsible for the present untidy appearance of the grounds realize what they are
doing. We believe that they do take a pride
in their university, and that when it is pointed
out to them that they are not only offending
the aesthetic sensibilities of their fellow student, but are also giving visitors a bad impression of U.B.C, they will accept the responsibility and do their share towards the improvement of their campus.

And WE Are
Thc People!
This is typical of the editorial in question, and of those who
are determined to oppose the
will of the majority at all costs. They will
stop at nothing.
They are not even ashamed to suggest to
the weaker minded of their fellow students
that they deliberately set the rules and statutes of the university at defiance by ignoring
any regulation that may be passed.
This is strangely at variance with the prominently editorial on the front page of the
same issue, which pleads in moving tones with
the Freshmen and Sophomores to observe the
laws of the University if they wish to retain
self government.
The first meeting, which will take
the form of a social, will be held at
the home of Mrs. C. McLean Fraser,
4585 West Sixth Avenue, on Monday,
October 15, at 8 o'clock. For information, regarding membership, see Jack
Poole, Charlotte Dill, Dorothy Buchanan or George Hori.

To the Editor,
Vancouver, BC
Dear Sir:
We were interested to read your
news item in the issue of Oct. 2, concerning the improvement of conditions
in British Columbia. Doubtless the
Bank of Montreal is also gratified.
We wonder, however, what the to-
! mato growers will do with their surplus—send it to the United States
along with "practically the whole
output" of the shingle-mills, which
are working it the splendid level of
30 per cent of capacity? "Grain is
moving to the coast in larger volume
than last year," you note. We hope
it will not be forced to stay in the
grain elevators—it makes such magnificent fuel.
We would like to be heartened by
your information, but in view of the
fact that it has been the habit of the
capitalist press for the last five years
to give us periodically such proof
that prosperity is almost here, we
wonder if your information can be
very valuable. If it means that unemployment is on the decline, many
of us will rejoice, those at least who
will be looking for job3 next year.
It seems doubtful, however, if that
is so when one notes the following
figures, compiled by Charlotte Whit-
ton, executive director of the Canadian Council on Child and Family
Welfare, and presented by her to the
annual meeting of ths Canadian
Chamber of Commerce:
Ten per cent of Canada's population is now on relief at a monthly
cost of between $6,000,000 and $7,000,-
In the past four years, our total
public expenditure for relief has been
over $300,000,000.
For the current year, the cost alone
will be at least $70,000,000.
Persons on relief in Canada have
never dropped below the 1,000,000
mark since October, 1932.
Adults in receipt of relief in Can.
ada in this period hava been over
The numbers of heads of families
has not dropped below 200,000 per
month since October 31, 1932; the
number of single persons has run
anywhere from 70,000 to 125,000.
We think that in the face of these
facts, and as University students of
supposedly inquiring minds it behooves us to investigate conditions a
little, and not merely tq. rest content
with reading the monthly bulletin ct
the Bank of Montreal and drawing
illogical conclusions therefrom which
are worthy of a Pollyanna. After all,1
since the Ubystey is the expression
of student thinking which comes most1
conspicuousy before the public, surely it should strive not to print, as
serious articles, unadulterated bilge-
all very well in its own place, which
is the muck page.
Yours,   etc.,
La Causerie will hold a meeting on
Tuesday evening, October 16, at the
home of Joy Wilson, 1904 Arbutus St.

Rights of State First
"One can hardly uphold American
democracy when a powerful organization like the American Legion can
force thc President to pass bonus
bills when he believes that such bills
will be detrimental to the welfare of
the country. We should uphold the
rights of the state more instead of
the selfish rights of the individual.
We are clinging to a Greek idea of
government that is 2000 years old—
let us try something new. That is
being done to-day in Italy and Germany," said Conway in closing.
Gordon Collins, secretary of the
Forum, was the speaker for the negative. Speaking in a bright, witty
manner, he proceeded to knock the
arguments of the first speaker.
England Made Progress
"The only country that has made
any progress towards normal times
is democratic England," stated Collins, "If Democracy is 2000 years
old and has 3tood the test of all that
time why shouldn't we continue to
use it."
"Such an enquiry as the Stevens
probe cculd only be held in a democratic country," declared the negative in answer to Conway's statement
that the Sevens Probe showed the
corruption of democracy." Imagine
Hitler or Stalin standing for a public
probe into their affairs! Democracy
is the only system that allows free
expression of ideas."
After both speakers had concluded
the meeting was thrown open with alternate speakers from both sides who
were limited to seven minutes. More
than twenty members participated in
this open debate.
The speakers were heckled in a
manner quite like that of regular political meetings. A personal battle of
words started between Jack Sumner
and Ernie Brown
Sumner charged that "we are, under Democracy, trying to run a machine age under a system which is a
product of an ox-cart mind. We need
a directorship, not a dictatorship."
Ernie Brown, the past president of
the Forum, said that he "machinery
of Democracy was oiled by he oil of
During the latter part of the debate
several women took part in the argument. One declared that Russia
was the only true Democracy in the
Before the meeting closed Ernie
Brown paid a tribute to the five years
of excellent leadership of Prof. Day.
The subject for the next meeting
of the Forum will be: "Resolved that
Pacifism is a spiritually and economically impossibe creed." This is
the topic that will be used at the
British debate in November.

The biggest stampede
West of
'Way back in December, 1916, there
appeared in thu University of British Columbia the first monthly publication. Now, this, a most worthy edition, contained deep and learned
stories concerning "Bridge Engineering" and "The Magazine Best Aadapt-
ed for Family Use." It even descended to the frivolous in "Society Notes"
and announced that the fashionable
young lady should be seen riding a
bicycle but, alas and alack this forefather of the Ubyssey had no name! I
In vain the harried editor considered
"Tuum Est," and judged the mystic
letters UB.C. into Cub and Buc. At
last they called its name "Anon", an
omnious statue tc. the instability of
Exciting days those must have
been with lectures "to the sound of
martial music and the clash of
arms." Great days they seem to have
been for the C.O.T.C. and the gals
who, it seems spent much time taking up collections for the boys "across
the duck-pond."
Whoops, girls, look what W.U.S.
was defined as in the good old days.
"Each woman fctudent entering the
University of British Columbia becomes a member of the Women's Undergraduate Society, one of the chief
duties of the members being to supply sandwiches and cake for such social functions as the Freshman Reception, Arts' Men's dances, and Science Skating parties." Too bad, m'
lads, you were born twenty years too
late. And the poor women, it appears were struggling along "to give
the common room at least the aspect
of a pleasant sitting room."
Frosh, fall on your knobby knees
and offer a prayer of thanksgiving
that you were not the verdant ones
of 1916. Here's what the "Anon"
says about the first Freshman initiation held at U.B.C. ''The Freshmen
were admitted one by one into the
House of Torture and were catapulted
without ceremony into the room at
the end of the hall. The whole thing
was done so quickly that they had no
time to 'put up their nuts.' Once
herded together the Master of Ceremonies admonished those about to
'ride the goat' to act like good little
men or suffer certain dire but indefinite punishment. After roll-call the
Freshies were blindfolded, thumbtied
and sent on their way rejoicing."
The fun continued. "Aud so, after
exhilarating aeroplane rides, hair-
breath escapes from falling out of
windows, and electric shocks the
Freshies were finally freed. Several
feeling their hands loosed, proceeded
to use thorn on their captors, and had
therefore to be chastised by the simple expedient of a board, and a slab
of ordinary mill wood, and three of
four husky students."
Finally, "By a vote the crowd decided to give itself an airing and proceeded for town, though the marching was not of a variety that makes
a drill sergeant weep tears of joy. A
final yell was given at the corner
of Granville and Hastings streets and
the crowd broke up. The whole affair lasted a few hours and was more
or less of a success" (for the freshman?). "It was decided that next
year a little more pep ought to be
injected into the Act."
Even with n'er a Stadium to bless
themselves with, Sports seamed to
flourish. In basketball U.B.C. was
behaving her self worthily in the city
league while the Science men headed
the inter-faculty league. The women
basketeers in those days, we read,
matched their skill against Braemar,
Crofton House and the Normal.
lee hockey was then a major sport
for atheletcs ef both sexes, although
the women players were having difficulty in finding competitors.
The Players Club was also mentioned in this issue of tho Anon. It
is probably tho Christmas plays that
were referred V> in this notice. "Seen

The first meeting of the Philosophy
Discussion Club was held on Tues-
day evening at the home of Dr. Pilcher, with an attendance which showed well the interest that psychology
and philosophy has for the U. B. C.
student. The papers to be given this
term will deal with the history of psychology as shown in the three schools
of thought, the Structuralists, the
Functionalists, and the Behaviorists.
The Philosophy of Bergson will also
be treated this term.
Schools of Thought
Dr. Pilcher outlined briefly the rise
and development of the three schools
of thought so as to give to the members of the club a general idea of the
subject Psychology was originally in
the field of philosophy. Interest in the
"association of ideas" started with Aristotle, but not until Wundt, a trained German scientist, established his
laboratory in Leipzig, was the study of
the mind approached from a scientific
instead of a theoretical or philosophical point of view. But Wundt was interested only in the structural side, the
study of the "mental furniture," and
he and his followers are known as
the Structuralists. Some of Wundt's
students branched off and became interested in the innate differences in
individuals and started the Wurtz-
berg school or the Functionalists.
Conceited Individuals
One of their most outstanding men
is Cattell, often described as "a conceited little individual" who claims
to have established the first laboratory
on this continent, which was in reality founded at Cornell in 1891 by
Titchener, a well known Structuralist.
As an off-shoot from functionalism
John W. Watson started the Behaviorists. These "extreme functionalists" refuse to use introspection but gather
their data from scientific experiments.
In doing this they ignore consciousness and are consequently only a partial psychology.
In the discussion which followed
this very interesting outline Dr. Pilcher gave a short resume of the Freudian school. Freud was a psychopath-
ologist, who, from the study of his
abnormal patients developed a theory of psychology based on the symbolical interpretation of dreams. "This
psycho-analytical school has, however," concluded Dr. Pilcher, "no experimental foundation and is purely

Frosh-Varsity Meet Is
Postponed For Two Weeks
Flu Grips Cindermen
The Annual Frosh-Varsity Track Meet, originally scheduled for last Wednesday, had to be postponed for a couple of
weeks because of the epidemic of flu which assailed the seniors.
Too, conditions were toitally unsuited for a Varsity meet—the
sun was shining and the track was bone-dry!
However, the "spike and splash" men will officially open
their season next week with an Invitation Meet in which Magee
and Britannia High Schools will field strong teams in the hope
of garnering points at Varsity's expense.
High School Stan
Britannia   is   sending   such   High
School stars as Perry and Hanley in
the sprints; McComber and McCor-
mick in the middle distances; and
Ollbbery and Curley in the distance
events. Their contingent will be complete with Lukas, Innes and Phillips
in the jumps end field events.
From Magee, Proctor in the distance events; Fairfield ln the spruits;
and Crawford, Bishop and Leuty ln
the jumps will be the men to beat.
Vanity Chances Good
Varsity's team should be even
stronger this year than when they
beat Tacoma in the spring. Though
weakened by the loss of Agnew, Pugh
and a few others, they have acquired
Boothby and Beach, two smart half-
milers, and Fletcher in the pole vault.
Among Varsity 9 "old guard" are
Gordie Heron, Max Stewart, Herb
Barclay, Joe Roberts, Jim McCammon, Jack Harvey, Klinkhammer, and
BUI Stott.
Wednesday, the 24th, will see the
Varsity vs. Unknowns struggle to be
followed later by an Indoor Meet to
be held ln Victoria.
A last-minute appeal is being made
by Cecil Wright to get the men out
for some training under the coach's
reproachful eye. We are extremely
fortunate in having a man of Dixon's
calibre as a coach but he will not
continue to turn out unless he is supported by the tthletes.

of the University freshmen, will tangle
in a soccer match on hte upper play

lenge with the result that the peace'
loving theologians from the Anglican
College  have called  their  buff  and
the game comes off today.   The Col
lege have a fairly formidable aggre
gation lined up, and they will take
the field confident that they will be
able to point out to the militiamen
the error of their ways in challeng
ing the A.T.C. boys.
The militia men have been flinging
challenges right and left lately, feeling that they were grossly misjudged
regarding their activities at the Frosh
Bonfire, and one of them has sent
this communication to the Ubyssey.
"If the poor freshmen are still under the impression that we, the members of- Camp 200, were responsible
for the burning of their bonfire last
Tuesday week, wc are willing to settle the difference of opinion on the
soccer field at their earliest convenience. This challenge also applies to
the sophomores if they feel that we

Varsity Meets
Ex Britannia
English Ruggen Perform On Saturday
With a win nnd a loss as their record so far, Varsity's first division
rugger teem will go out to win their
next Miller Cup game tomorrow at
Brockton Point Oval at 2 30. Pitted
against Ex-Brittannia, a now team in
the first division, the Varsity boys
stand a good chance of coming out
on top.
Last week Ex-Brittania went down
before Occasionals. Varsity also lost
a game to the Grads on Thanksgiving.
After three good work-outs this week
however, the Campus boys are in the
pink of condition and ready for the
Dave Carey, a North Vancouver
man at Varsity this season, will be
off the playing field for at least three
weeks. He was injured in the Thanksgiving day game and is using a cane
to get about, lie will likely be replaced by one of two men—Robson,
from Victoria, or Bird, a Freshman.
Absent last week with a heavy cold,
Ed McGulre will again be back in
his place tomorrow.
Following is o probable line-up for
the Saturday game:
Forwards — Pyle, McGulre, Gross,
Lea, Harrison, Mitchell, Upward, Morris, Clement, McMullen.
Backs—Bird, Robson, Roxborough,
Mercer, Gaul, Wilson, Hager, Legatt,

Montgomery Coach
Of Fair Hoopers
Girls Hope For Good Season
The women basketballers, who have
heretofore been hiding their light under a bushel or so of basketballs,
come to the front at last with an account of their activities. The girls
have been practising regularly for
some time past, long before the male
hoopers in fact, since they have had
their work-outs in a down-town gym.
Doc Montgomery, who coached the
Dominion Champion Varsity men's
team of several years ago, is training
the girls well, end they seem to be
shaping into i. real basketball machine under his tutelage. Their ambition is to duplicate the accomplishments of the ceat team of several
years ago. Some people may not remember it, but the University of B.C.
women's team was the world champion squad in 1929 or '30 and their
success has been the inspiration for
all women's teems at Varsity since.
Four Senlon Return
The regular practises take place on
Wednesday and Friday at 5:30. Besides these, a practise for beginners is
held Thursday at 3:00 o'clock, where
novices may learn the game from Violet Mellish, a member of the senior
A team.
Four of last year's senior teams are
returning, and aiound them the new
team will be built. These players
are, Margery Mellish, Violet Mellish,
Jean Thomas, and Beth Evans. From
last year's intermediate team come
Margaret Cunningham, Jean Dawson,
Margaret Hospcl, and Betty Morris.
They have developed considerably
since last year, and will likely move
up this season.
Newcomen Look Promising
Among the Freshettes and newcomers who are reporting for the
game is Blanch McMurchie. Blanch
hails from Calgary and she is, running Beth Evuna a close race for the
center position. Another promising
Freshette is Helen Parker, who plays
the guard position.
Pat Lcfon, Grace Gibb, Ruth Wilson, Margaret Porter and' Peggy
Jones are other newcomers who are
trying for places on the team. Kay
Bourne, who ptoyed two years ago,
may turn out for the team again this
It is expected that the team will
be considerably stronger than last
year's squad. The girls will play
several of their games as preimin-
aries to the men's senior A games.
Doc Montgomery expects to have a
team whipped into shape for the
opening game of the season, on the
twenty-seventh of this month. Varsity's opposition will be the strong
Province squad.
Occasionals Trim
Thunderbirds Mon.
English Ruggers Surprised By Grads
1 WOULD offer to buy beer and crumpets for the Pub if
we don't get the McKechnie Cup this year!
Oh, well, it will be worth it if the boys playing the English
code serve up a few more stonewall stands like that last fifteen
minutes against the Occasionals - - that is, if my cardiac valves
manage to stand the strain.
Penned behind their own five-yard mark for almost the
entire last quarter of the  game, the Thunderbirds shoved,
heaved, dived, smashed and catapulted themselves against an
irresistible Occasional attack, and staved off the threatened
break through until the last second of play.   It was calculated
to cut weeks off the life of any spectator with a tendency toward
apoplexy, but it was worth it.
And the rest of the game wasn't a bit less exciting.
Ail Scoring Ln Second Half
A scoreless first half was no tame
affair, and though the Blue and Gold,
playing their second game of the
week-end, tired visibly as they commenced their second stanza, they
fought for every yard, and as I have
intimated above. Their last stand,
as they went down to glorious defeat,
was beyond words.
Scoring opened shortly after the
half, Occasionals going over in quick
succession for two trys, one of which
they converted, and then Varsity
came back with ti perfect three-quarter run, Roxborough going over at
the pole. The convert missed. The
final score was the one that finally
overcame the dcfvnse just before the
whistle. Result, Varsity 3, Occasionals 11.
Field Muddy
The only disappointing feature of
the game was the  slippery   ball  and
dribbling and less running than usual,
and cut down the efficiency of the
full-backs. Thus the kicking exchanges were marked by slips and
falls and punts were blocked several
Carey, the new half, injured his
leg severely enough to be out of the
game for some time, but managed to
stick it out illl time was called.
Grads the Team To Beat
However, don't let my lugubrious
opening persuade you thit I am already preparing tc shell up for the
beer and trimmings. I still hold to
my opinion of Thanksgiving day, but,
having also observed th* All-Blacks
and the Rowing Club in action. I add
to my original dictum the information that the Occasionals are the outfit we will have to beat for it. They
are good this year, but I don't think
they can put tho bee on the Thunder-
Thunderbirds To Take
On Meralomas In Big
Four Football Tilt
Moaners Have Won All Their Garnet
With the echoes of their ignominious defeat at American
Football by Washington State College still ringing in their ears,
Varsity's Canadian Ruggers will invade Athletic Park on Saturday determined to show Meralomas that they are still very
much in the running for local honours. With what they believe
to be a very useful, if unpleasant, experience behind them, the
Thunderbirds are confident that they will put up a good showing against the league leaders. The practice they received in
interference plays alone will stand them in good stead, they are
Team Intact
Notwithstanding the injuries en-,
tailed last Saturday by the players,
Captain Freddy Bolton will lead practically the same team into action tomorrow as performed against the Americans. Although limping somewhat
from last game Bolton expects to be
in there guiding the boys in their efforts. With the exception of Keller,
who is out with an injured knee, the
team will be intact for its return to
the Canadian Code.
Changos la Lineup
Several minor changes will be effected in the Varsity lineup for their
Big Four debut. Bob Twiss, the
promising Freshman, is being shifted
from guard to play Flying Wing. Ed
Senkler, a Big Four man last year,
will be a valuable addition to the
back-fled Senkler did not play on
Saturday. Ernie Brown uifortunate-
ly finds that both studying and rugby
are too much and will not be seen
again at guard. Stu Jagger who was
forced out of thc last contest on account of sicknesi, will be back ln his
old position of half. In addition two
Senior City men are stepping up to
the first team. Ron Bell will play at
flying wing while Slim Davidson's 185
pounds should prove a useful
strengthener in the line.
Bolton Optimistic
Ed Kendall suffered a slight concussion ln tho American Game but
expects to be able to take his usual
place in the backfield. Ed played a
sterling game on Saturday and can
be counted on to lead the Varsity
attacks. With such a large percentage of first string men back, Captain
Bolton is very optimistic regarding
tomorrow's battle. A win or even a
close fight would do much towards
restoring confidence in the Blue and
Gold squad. Let's turn out and give
the boys some encouragement.
Ed Kendall
This sophomore is proving one of
Varsity's strongest backfield men. Here
he is seen poised for one of his famous forward passes.
