Defends Provincial
Government Plant
In Education
"Greater centralization in education
ln B.C. under the present government
has provided greater efficiency and
greater assistance to the children of
this province," Dr. Weir, Minister of
Education in the Provincial cabinet,
stated Saturday night to a large audience at the Vancouver Institute
"We have been retarded by lack of
money. Shortly before the present
government took office ,the grants by
the former B.C. government had been
reduced. In fact they had been reduced by fifty-seven percent, In two
years. And yet the graduates of this
university have made a name for It
and for the province all over the continent."
Dr. Weir stressed the contributions
made to the province by U.B.C. graduates. "There is a trend," he stated,
"for the University to make great
contributions to the public life of the
"White but three percent of the men
and women ln the Provincial Secretary's department are university graduates, this three percent has done
much to the economic educational,
and social benefit of British Columbia
citizens. Three years ago, Dr. Davidson, a U.B.C. graduate, was appointed superintendent ot welfare. A
beardless youth, he saved the province ln that year $25,000, and it was
given to widows who had two children or more."
Others who are U.B.C. graduates
and who have contributed to B.C.'s
welfare are: Dr. Lamb, provincial
archivist; Dr. Cassidy, head of the
social research department; Dr. Peebles, technical adviser to the health insurance administration; Miss Isobel
Bescoby, reorganizer of primary education; Dr. Carrothsrs, head of the
economic research council; Dr. Skel-
ton, minister of labor; and, on the
University staff, Dr. Topping and Dr.

A scarlet skirt billows and swirls
around the gleaming white limbs of
a pretty blonde as they twist and
flash in the intricacies of a savage
rhumba; the nimble fingers of George
Calangis, veteran Orpheum circuit
performer, sweep over the strings of
his banjo and evoke the contrasting
spirits of organ and hurdy-gurdy that
lie hidden in the tin and calfskin; a
dark-eyed beauty wanders through
tho crowded tables, turning her
come-hither glance from bashful
Freshman to bold, bad Sophomores
as she carols modem melodies . . .
The crowd fills the floor and sways
in rhythm to the pulsating beat of
the orchestra, flowing round and
round the floor in a slow current of
gaudy color, only to retire and stand
motionless on the shores of a pool of
brilliant light as two graceful shapes
swoop out into the glare and twirl,
poise, and glide, surrendering themselves to the ecstacy of motion and
subdued music as they wind through
the measures of a classic waltz.
It is the Arts-Aggie Ball . . .
Or at least it is the vision the entertainment committee has, and hopes
to see fulfilled when the cast they
have engaged for the evening of Nov.

Oriental Vote
Debate Topic
Present  Policy  Of  Japanese
Disfranchisement Deplored
By Forum Members
"By birth, training and education,
they are Canadians and they are
proud of it. Their disenfranchisement
is opposed to all British ideals of justice and liberty. The creation of a
group with a rankling sense of injustice is unwise,"
This argument was advanced in opposition to the resolution, "Resolved
that the present policy of Japanese
disenfranchisement should be continued," that was the subject of the
Forum debate Friday noon.
The resolution was supported by
F. Tanaka and A. Carlson and opposed by K. Shoyama and L. Martin.
Prof. J. Friend Day acred as chairman.
The debate was conducted in perfectly good feeling. A showing of
hands defeated the resolution by a
4 to 1 vote.
The affirmative based it's case on
ihe statement that Japanese enfranchisement would help to promote
Japan's aim of world dominance as
Canadian Japanese could not be assimilated and would work for Japan
rather than Canada.
"Because the Japanese are more industrious," said Tanaka, "they will,
if given the vote, dominate in the
political as well as the economic
field, This would be fatal to all who
honor Canadian institutions."
Carlson held that, if given political
rights, Japanese could not be excluded. Immigration of Japs with
their ability for "mass-reproduction"
would begin.
An appeal to the audience to look
with unprejudiced eyes on the Jap
who but asked a chance to have a
voice in his own government was
voiced by Len Martin.
Prof. J. Friend Day said he was
very pleased with the meeting and
with Ihe way the two races came together to discuss the question. He
said that debates would be held every
fortnight on all subjects from "free
love" to "beans for breakfast."
Peter Disney announced that a debate would be held here between
U.B.C. and representatives from McGill and Toronto. The subject will
be, "Resolved that this house favors
a Social Credit government," U.B.C.
taking the affirmative.
Fulton, McKillop Will
Meet Eastern Reps.
In Auditorium
David Fulton and Lex McKillop of
U.B.C. will take the affirmative of
the resolution: "That this house approves of a Federal Social Credit
Government for Canada," when they
meet Sidney Hermant of Toronto and
Ell KeUoway of McGill in the University Auditorium Friday evening at
8 o'clock.
Both visiting debaters are prominent at their home universities. At
Toronto, Hermant has been president
ot the Literary and Athletic Societies, President of Students' Council,
speaker In Hart House debates and
intercollegiate radio debates. He Is
an Honor student in Law.
Eli C. Kelloway of McGill has been
secretary of the Junior Debating Division in 1932, winner of silver and
gold medals in the Montreal Debating
League, the next year, member of the
Debating Union Executive, and finally, president of the student body at
United Theological College there.
The visiting team is one of four
touring Canada under the auspices of
the N.F.C.U.S., the official federation
of the student unions at most of the
Canadian Universities.
On Nov. 9, Jay Gould of U.B.C. will
travel east with Maurice Western of
Saskatchewan to debate in Ontario
and Quebec. At the same time, Dal-
housie and New Brunswick will send
a team south to meet seven American
Universities including Harvard, Betes
College, and New York.
Organization of debating tours is
one of the chief activities of the N.F.
C.U.S. One purpose of the group is
to fight the provincial outlook in Canada, and its officers believe that the
clash of debaters from different sections is a valuable weapon.
Since 1927, twenty-two tours have
been arranged. These have included
tours within Canada by British, American, Australian nnd New Zealand
teams. In addition, Canadian teams
have visited Great Britain and the
United States.

Miss M. Gordon
The legal profession in British Columbia will form the basis of the third
vocational guidance talk which will
be held on Wednesday at noon in
Arts 100.
Speaker at the meeting will be Miss
Mildred Gordon, practising lawyer
with the firm of Bourne and Des-
brisay, barristers and solicitors. Her
subject, although broad in its general
application, will be planned to place
principal emphasis on the possibilities of the vocation for women, especially graduates of the University.
According to Tommy Berto, graduate organizer of the vocational guidance series, the lecture promises to
be one of the most successful of the
entire season.
The original speaker scheduled for
the occasion, Mr. H. R. MacMillan,
has expressed his regrets at being
unable to fulfil his appointment, but
will deliver his lecture at a later
date, according to Berto.
Sunday night class parties, official
greeters for visiting busses, and the
chances of survival for microphones
at pep meetings were a few of the
weighty issues pondered by Students'
Council last night.

their way to the Arts-Aggie Ball.
Furthermore, Council members, not
intending to go tq the function, must
not sell their tickets, it was announced. I never give mine away,"

A letter of complaint from Arts '38
was received, objecting to holding
their class party on Sunday night.
While Senkler, organizer of the social program for the University, referred to his calendar of events, the
meeting adjourned in favor of "Honest" R. J. Killam's latest creation in
"sangwidges"—the feature this week
being sliced tomatoes and lettuce.

Programme Has Been
Arranged For
Former students of the University,
—graduates now engaged in all fields
of activity throughout the province-
will be welcomed back to the campus
of their Alma Mater on Saturday
when they will be entertained with a
varied program of athletic and social
events arranged by Students' Council
to take place on that day.
President Bernard Brynelsen of
Students' Council, in an interview
Monday afternoon, outlined plans for
the program. "We must make Alumni
Day a success," he said. "It is the
first event of its kind in the history
of the University, and is being held
in addition to the regular home-corn*
ing program which will be arranged
next spring.
"It is not on the graduates that the
success of the Alumni Day program
depends. The student body at the
college must do its part by turning
out in full force, and taking a really
active part in the varied activities
which have been arranged," he continued.
Commenicng at 2:30, two English
rugby games will be held on the University campus, he said—the first a
Senior game between the Varsity
Thunderbird squad and Occasionals.
The two teams, rivals for supremacy
in the city league, are the natural
opponents to take part in the contest,
he explained, since Occasionals ere
all graduates of the University.
"Graduates throughout the city and
other parts of the province must of
necessity be interested in their own
team," Brynelsen declared. "Even if
they came to the campus for no other
purpose than to watch the rugby
game, the day would surely be a

By "Phrateres"
The Phrateres' Initiation Ceremony,
which will take place on Nov. 16 in
the Aztec Ballroom of the Georgia
Hotel, was discussed by Audrey Horwood at a meeting of the Phrateres
in Arts 100 on Monday noon.
The installation of officers will take
place at 5 o'clock and the banquet
at 8:30. In the evening there will
be the initiation ceremony.
It was suggested that the Phrateres
have their own letterhead on their
stationary. It was also stated that
the Phrateres' magazine, containing
convention news and interesting reports, could still be purchased for 25c
from Beverly Cunningham.
The Alpha sub-chapter extended an
invitation for tea which will be held
at the home of Audrey Horwood, 4151
West 10th Ave. on Nov. 13.
All girls taking the Phrateres' exam
are to watch the notice board for an
announcement of the date.
Those purchasing pins were asked
to sign for them this week. Claire
Brown, founder of this branch of
Phrateres, welcomed the new members and said that she would like to
see a real drive for the Bursary Fund.

Sveral issues ago, The Ubyssey declared itself in no position to comment adversely on the
programme of adult education recently adopted by University authorities following receipt
of a grant from the Carnegie Corporation in
New York. Now it seems that the time has
come for a definite stand on the programme as
it affects the student body of the University
as a whole.
One group of professors has already returned to the University, and another is just preparing to depart on its tour. The lectures supposed to be given by the first group at the college were taken over by alternate professors,
—but it appears that the students will not be so
fortunate during the next few months.
According to information supplied by Dr.
O. J. Todd, on Monday, present plans although
not yet definitely complete, leave blanks in
the timetable which it will be impossible to fill.
Professors Sedgewick, MacDonald, Larsen
and Dilworth will each miss six lectures under
the department of English, and it is expected
that some of the lectures will not be replaced.
In the department of modern languages,
Professor Evans will miss ten lectures, only
two of which have so far been replaced, and
Professor Clarke will miss twelve lectures,
only three of which have been replaced.
And without casting slurs upon the ability
of any of the profess- <v'val staff, Professor Morsh
in the department of philosophy, declared after
his return from a lecture tour throughout the
province that he found his class in psychology
considerably behind in their work.
Two weeks ago when we hesitated about
taking a definite stand, this information was
not available. Today there is no further need
for hesitation.
We therefore suggest to the administrative
officers of the University that their treatment
of the student body is not good enough. The
registered students at the college pay high
fees for the privilege of a higher education.
On no account should they be hampered by
a premature attempt to institute an adult education programme throughout the rest of British Columbia.
A correspondent whose letter we print in
this issue has waxed rather vituperative
against us for the Page One editorial of last
week about the Board of Governors and a
physical instructor.
He accuses us of sponsoring a particular
nominee for the position, of attempting to railroad the issue, and of maliciously attacking
the new Board of Governors.
These accusations of decidedly reactionary
complexion sound quite strange from a self-
confessed strike leader.
If the gentleman's arguments are to be
taken as any other than deliberate mis-interpretation, we of course plead not guilty to each
count. The editorial was written and featured
chiefly to impress on the powers the student
desire for prompt action. It brought about a
friendly conference with a representative of
the Board with a result that the atmosphere is
cleared and the student viewpoint appreciated
and endorsed.

Summer kept his body from him. With the
sun a thin fire burning; and at night he slept.
He had a dead bird and its broken neck slid
under his fingers. By a stump every sundown
he covered his bird. The soft feel of the dead
wood made laughter in him. All summer he
played with the blurred hours out of his timeless death.
But that morning after the first snow he
could not find the mound. The stumps were
all the same. The need was hard agony to
him; he was full of all the whitness and to his
words ever the dead bird only would listen.
Terrible loneliness shuddered him; and he ran
all night with the moon. Near dawn some dead
leaves for a fire but the vague act frightened
him. His fingers tearing to reach the coldness
on his body. He would have run but his breath
harder than the wind and slowly his whole
mind shrieking again of that time when with
some quick bitterness he had covered his
mothers' shame.
Where they came upon him earth had made
the snow dirty.

in all details except attendance and
thus fell a little short financially.
This last falling is not due to the executive but is due to the poor support of the Sciencemen. So let's see

gorgeous pair of black satinette trousers. Apparently "all that glisters is
not gold," for although Bannerman's
posterior attirq was not of that precious metal, it reportedly glowed and
scintillated in a most captivating
fashion. Dr. Sedgewick, daring the

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I wish you to print this letter of
mine as the voice of one who believes himself to be presenting more
clearly the attitude ot the student
body than your editorial of Nov. 1,
which was given front page publicity
in the Ubyssey of that date. I consider that denunciation of our new
Board of Governors, a Board in which
we have the utmost confidence and
pride, was a piece of unprecedented
presumption on your part. I, for one,
am ashamed of the fact that you occupy the position of spokesman for
the student body of which I am proud
to be a member.
Your whole editorial was a whimper, whether from yourself or from
"those parties primarily, etc." to
whom you referred, expressed as the
verdict of the students as a whole on
a topic about which you, apparently,
were not competent to judge. You
say that the request is for "an instructor who would be competent to
organize and promote intra-mural
sports and give instructions in physical eduaction on a purely voluntary

mean rather a particular instructor
is being promoted? Also I ask is he
competent to give instructions in
physical education? The man to
whom I refer, or any other man,
should not be taken on as the head
of the athletic activity on this campus unless he can first show that he
is an expert in the art of building
physical fitness before any other
qualification is discussed and it is toward ths end that the Board of Governors appears to be investigating.
I feel that your editorial shows a
distinct bias toward the appointment
of an instructor or coach rather than
the appointment of a trainer whose
field would be to build physique and
plan the schedule of athletics. The
coach would be an exponent of a
few games whereas the trainer would
be the exponent of a better standard
of physique and competent to promote it and, as a matter of course,
a promoter of all sports. We, of the

The statement that the Board suggests

Students Claim
Undue Fines At
U. oTAlberta
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, EDMONTON, NOV. 4 (Gl-V.N.S.)-Students resident in Athabasca and As-
siniboia Halls, men's residence buildings, are up in arms over what they
allege to be arbitrary actions of the
men's house committee in levying
fines for "infringement of regulations." Each spring a committee of
three members in addition to a chairman is elected by the students in
residence to exercise general supervision over students in the Halls for
the ensuing year. This year's committee, under the chairmanship of
Gurth O'Brien, fifth year medical
student from Grande Prairie, came
into office last spring on a platform
of minimum interference with the
actions of resident students, those
standing for election to membership
in the committee even going so far
as to hint that they would if elected,
go some distance in opposing the rulings of the University authorities, as
represented by the Provost, Dr. J. M.
MacEachran, and the Assistant Provost, J. T. Jones.
Far from following out this proposed program, the House Committee
has, it is said, gone very far in the
opposite direction, levying fines indiscriminately for every infringement
of any rule whatever. Examples of
fines which have been levied are
those for "throwing napkins at table
In the dining hall," "walking on the
grass in front ot residence buildings,"
etc. Commencing some ten days ago,
feeling against the House Committee
has been Increasing steadily, according to reports received by the Gateway, and a petition, already signed by
200 residents of the halls, is being
circulated among all residence dwellers. The petition demands intervention by the University Provost, Dr.
J. M. MacEachran, to halt the fining
proclivities of the House Committee.
Text of the petition follows;
"We, the undergraduate students of
the University of Alberta residing in
Athabasca and Assiniboia Halls, hereby register our protest to the arbitrary fining of students in the residences without adequate warning as
to offences punishable by fines. And
we hereby petition the Provost of the
University of Alberta to prevail upon
the House Committee to return the
fines levied by them, not in accordance with this petition."
Interest in the matter is at fever
heat on the campus. The state of affairs is featured in to-day's edition
of the Gateway and the ex-acutive of
the Students' Council has met to consider the matter, although its jurisdiction does not extend to the House
Committee. Further developments are
expected at any moment.

Hetherington, when asked about the

Treasurer Hetherington states that
he is not in favor of acceding to the

he stated, "and no favorites should

Peeps' Diary
I'm certainly glad the cold weather
is nearly over. If there is one thing
I hate it is the cold; it always does
the most distressing things to my face.
This year I didn't mind it so much
becau3e for once I used a bit of forethought. I bought me a new warm
winter coat at ANNE MALONEY'S.
She has all kinds of the smartest
coats there in plain wools, tweed mixtures and camel hairs. I bought a
perfect beauty in the softest dark
green wool. The sales girl told me
it was a Balmachaan or something,
anyway it buttoned up close to my
throat. There were the smartest
pleats at the back with a sort of yoke
effect. Pleats were also found on
the pockets in front and down the
sleeves. It looks just grand on but
then I'm never disappointed with anything I buy at ANNE MALONEY'S.

I'm not the only orre who gets new
things in our family. Mother has
just bought the loveliest pair of brown
suede pumps at RAE'S CLEVER
SHOES. They have fairly high heels
and are trimmed with perforated kid.
Mother says that they are marvelous-
ly comfortable.   She is just as fond
My elder sister also buys cute things
occasionally, though mind you she is
not half as clever as I am. She's
just got the loveliest ice blue moire
negligoe. It has quite a tailored effect, the only trimming being a belt
with a white silk fringe at the end.
It is really one of the prettiest things
I've seen and only cost $3.98. It can
take half the credit for sister's good
sense for it was me who directed her
on South Granville. Sis is usually
not so good at shopping but she just

day I bought my coat and she got
her shoes we were just about frozen.
Mother was all for going home but I
persuaded her that a cup of tea would
be better. So I took her to the BLUE

campus. Near the brink of the lily
pond stood a silent figure in a silk
hat. Under the bus stand lurked a
Chinese who half concealed a long
bladed knife. A villainous looking
tramp was walking down the Mall.
Another Scienceman was standing
near by. From behind the Cairn could
be heard a low murmur of dialogue.
The silence of the night was shattered by a grinding whine. Straining up
the straightaway came an ancient, decrepit vehicle. It wheezed around in
a U turn and rattled to a panting
halt. It was a bus.
Two figures emerged. They hurriedly examined their bruised bodies to
see whether or not they where still
whole. It speaks much for their calibre that they survived the trip unharmed.
They were Oscar Scribblewell. star
reporter of the Great Point Grey

of Arts 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30.) and

"But I can. Bindleton, I have definite assurance that Chang Suey is

At that moment the night gave forth
a hideous sound. A huge bloodhound
with eyes of fire and a worried look
bounded up.
"Look, Bindleton! The Hound of the
Baskervilles, no doubt."
From the dog's neck hung a strange
oriental seal to which was attached
a rice paper envelope.
(Why not a rice pudding, I wonder?'
Hurriedly,    the    intrepid    reporter
seized it, tore it open, and read it.

gazed, yellow hands pulled the beautiful woman in black into the walnting

looked after it.

Even when I was a little girl I liked little boys.  I remember
one in particular.  His father was a captain of the guard, and he
was straight and brown in the afternoon sun that day.   Two
hours later I met a boy whose father was a general.   He had
curly hair and eyes.  This went on for months and months. (The
curly hair, I mean.)

For Policies
(Continued from Page 1)
"Also, this government is raising
the standard of education. All public school teachers may, within & few
decades, be required to have a bachelor's degree. By 1937 they must have
first class certificates."
"We have by no means reached
over production in education," the
speaker contended. "Increased education brings increased purchasing
power ond increased demand."
"The tendency towards greater rationalization in education has made
a distinct contribution to democracy."
Here Dr. Weir cited the number of
subjects of a practical nature included in school curricula, such as manual training, sheet metal work, and
domestic science, and spoke in favor
of this tendency.
"This tendency has resulted from
our better understanding through rationalization of our immediate problems in relation to our future problems. This has enabled us to see our
real social need in terms not of the
present, but of the future. Reactionary tendencies are as dangerous as
the over enthusiasm of the 'red'."
"The little red schoolhouse did contribute much to the life of this nation, but it is now a thing of the
past, and should be revered for the
good it did, rather than because it is
of the past.
"We rely too much on aphorisms
which are too often made substitutes
for rationalization.
"The educationalist approaches his
task in the interest of simplicity with
a background of truth. The propagandist delivers his material in such
a manner that it cannot be distinguished from the facts of reality."
That night I slept alone. (I usually
slept with my mother . . fooled you).
It was then I learned that love could
be cruel.
As time went on, I got older. There
were palace intrigues and things that
the growing girl should know, and
oh, so many other things.
Now I have passed the peak of my
beauty. I have only Antony. He
came home tight last night. I socked
him — socked him damn good and
hard too. He can't get away with that
stuff when little old Cleo is around.

Caesar wouldn't have done that.
Caesar was always a gentleman, even
if he didn't marry me. I told Mark
that too.
Octavian Is getting closer. I understand he won't have anything to do
with me. Must remember to buy a
snake soon.
It is two weeks later. Octavian is
at the gates. Oh, well. Being bitten
by a snake is better than living with
a snake in the grass.   Good bye.

Diary: January; Gosh, that Cleopatra was .a hot number. I remember
the first time I saw her, sitting on
her throne, with hardly anything on.
But I'm sure glad to get back to
Rome. God, how that woman nagged.
And the way she took on when she
found out I wasn't going to stay and
marry her. If Calpurnia ever knew
the whole story she'd stab me. Oh,
well, she'll never find out (I hope).
Ides of March:
Funny, I keep remembering Cleopatra. Must remember to send her
a birthday card. Guess I'll go to the
senate now. Some fool told me not
to go today. A soothsayer. A lot of
goddam tripe about beware the ides
of March.   Pooey.

That damn woman. Socking me in
the eye like that. What if I did have
a few. There's no law against it.
Oh, God my eye hurts! And the way
she's always talking about Caesar.
Well, I knew Caesar too, ond he wasn't so hot.   A megalomaniac.  Nuts.
Guess I'll have to get some beefsteak for this eye. If she pulls a
stunt like this again, I'll show her.
I'll go home to my wife. She can't
nag ME. She's even worse than Ful-
vla, and Fulvla was one of the best
plain and fancy naggers in Rome.
That Octavian too. Thinks he's gonna grab the East. Well, I'll show him,
too.   I'll show all of them.
It is two weeks since I have had
time to write. Cleopatra threw a
plate at me last night. She's getting
worse lately. I guess I'd better put
my armor on. Octavian is pretty
close now.

Thunderbirds To Win
Varsity Loses Soccer Battle By 9-4 Score
The Mainland Cup, which Varsity has won once, will not
grace the Liberty trophy case this year. The Bluebird soccer
eleven decided that on Saturday. They tallied four times while
the Blue and Gold men failed to score in the tussle at Colling*
wood Park.
Perhaps it was the fierce checking*"" ~~
Over (Or Maybe In) The Bounding Waves
of the birds or perhaps the sore legs
of the local men but whatever the
cause was, the Varsity team just
failed to click.
For the first half of the game, the
play was even, but rather easy goals
for the birds seemed to disrupt the
Varsity teamwork. From then on the
play became more and more individual with the opponents developing a
smooth passing attack that gave
Greenwood plenty to think about in
the students' goal.
Osovsky's two efforts were the
only scores in the first half, with
Truscott and Christie adding the other
two in the second stanza. Greenwood's work in this half amply made
up for his momentary lapse of the
first period, as he pulled off several
difficult saves. Sweetnam also gave
a good account of himself in checking a very tricky wing. Wolfe and
Quayle, until the latter was forced
off with a gashed head, were also
very effective on defence. Thurber
played a nice game at fullback when
Quayle retired.
The team was as follows: Greenwood, Quayle, Sutherland, Thurber,
Wolfe, Sweetnam, Irish, Goddard,
Croll, Chester.   Sub, Mizuhara.

After a fast and furious game of
soccer, Friday, the Frosh found they
had been beaten 1-0 by the Sophs.

game it was discovered that there

attacking one poor little football. Referee Moodie strenuously tried to reduce each team to the customary 11
but failed completely. The teams
were very evenly matched but Soph
Fred Smith scored in spite of the
good playing of goalie Bill Norrie and

Wed. Noon
The annual classic, the Art's '30
road race, will be held on Wednesday
noon, rain or shine. The well known
course, round and round the mall, is
a distance of 2.8 miles, and usually
gets a fine turnout. Among the contenders for bunions are: Paddy Colthurst, Mans. Beach, Ronny Allen and
Walt Stewart.
The fast cold weather should threaten the old record held by Alfie Allen, Sc. '35, who burned up the mall
with the time of 14.26.4 way back In
1930. Contestants are asked to go to
town for their strip.  (Howzat Vic?).
The Track Club is going ahead with
its plans for indoor meets. So far
on the schedule for proposed meets
are a Victoria-Varsity meet, and one
at New Westminster. It is also possible to have meets with Washington
Frosh and College of Puget Sound.
All track enthusiasts are urged to
turn out every Wednesday and Friday at 3:30 in the gym. Percy Williams will be present on those days
to give instruction about indoor running. -BERRY.
Spencer Girls
Defeat Varsity 38-19
A very jittery Senior Women's basketball team lost their first game to
Spencers, last year's champions, when
they failed to pull themselves together and to play their usual game. As
Varsity had difficulty in settling down
to business in the first of the game,
Spencers took advantage of that fact
and quickly jumped into the lead ond
stayed there. Nothing clicked for the
co-eds and the quarter ended 13-2
against them. However, in the second quarter it was a different tale
when the Blue and Gold girls improved and outscored their opponents
Both teams were about even at the
start cf the second half but, when
Ena Clarke, U.B.C. guard, made her
exit because of four personal fouls,
their defense was somewhat weakened and Spencers scored several baskets before the co-eds tightened up
again. But with good passing and
teamwork the Diamond "S" girls
gained the edge in the rest of the
game and ended it 38-19 in their
Laura Nixon, Ena Clarke, and Beth
Evans were the mainstays of the over
anxious U.B.C. team while Muriel
McKenzie, tall centre for Spencers,
was their outstanding player. With
passes and plays not clicking most of
the scoring of the Varsity girls was
left to individual trys: many times
Laura Nixon or Ena Clarke broke
away by herself and scored. Beth

Rowing Club's Best And
Only Regatta Thursday
Big Program at Vancouver Club Has Seven
Varsity's rejuvenated and enthusiastically growing Rowing Club is
holding their first and only regatta
this term, tomorrow in Coal Harbor
at 3 p.m. In the main race Varsity
is rowing against St. Georges' School
In the shell are: stroke, Gordie Morris; No. 3, Frank Stevens; No. 2, Stu
Laneand and in the bow, Bill McLeish. Alex Mcintosh, Varsity's crew
captain, is coxing the shell nimself
in the absence of an experienced cox.
Six scheduled races between crews of
eights who aro mostly freshman rowers will provide some excitement and
show the possibilities which Varsity
Most of the credit for this year's
success can be given to the coaching
v/hich the rowing club has been receiving as well as the enthusiasm
shown by Wilson McDuffee, president
of the club and Alex Mcintosh, crew
Alex says about the races tomorrow,
"The men in the four are all experienced. They have all rowed for three
or four years and are picked from
the senior eight. This will be the
strongest, crew Varsity has turned
out. They average 150 pounds while
St. George average 135. Rowing is a
major sport at St. Georges and they
train every day."
Alex states of the coaches, "Varsity
is certainly very fortunate in receiving such coaches. There is nobody
in B.C. who could better the advantage we have in coaches. Th-e eights
which will race on Wednesday are all
enthusiastic and coming-up rowers.
They are promising material for the
spring and next year."
The coaches:
Professor West has been Varsity's
rowing spirit for the past four years
and is at last meeting with success in
organizing the sport at the U.B.C. He
is very keen on forming a club of our
own. He states: "The idea that we
start a campaign interesting the influential business men down town in
the formation of a Varsity rowing
club has been fostering for some time.
There are numerous sites on False
Creak where we could start a club at
little expense. Last year we took the
crews down to Washington and gave
them a good race but our crews are
at a disadvantage because of faulty
and broken equipment. It is absolutely essential that we get new
equipment. On Saturday we had

to give us his services for the past
three years but this year with his return to coaching his tremendous enthusiasm has been a big reason for
the sudden popularity of rowing on
the campus.
He says, "The Rowing Club has begun nobly this year. Coal Harbor has
been a lively place during the recent
mixed weather, as thirty or forty
oarsmen have set out each day under
the coaches commands Co 'paddle.' It
is a splendid innovation to begin
rowing in the winter term, for always
in the past it has been lack of strict
training and insufficient practice
wheh have caused our defeats from
the lighter crews in Seattle on Lake
Washington. Individual oarsmanship
will improve imemnsely under the
new regime, and the crews will have
opporutnity to acquire those rarer
qualities of perfect co-ordination and
In the regatta on Wednesday, the
Varsity Four will go to (he starting-
point with deplorably little practice.
But even in its few outings, the crew
has been well together, and has
shown enough concerted drive to give
the boat a considerable run. We can
only hope that the four strokes, Ad-
dington, Jamison, McMillan and Logan, of the novice eight3, won't be
interrupted in their pace by any mishaps to the rusty riggers, and that
none of the Freshmen behind them
will catch a crab.
Tom Brown, lately returned from
Oxford, expresse a great deal of faith
in rowing at U.B.C. He thinks that
there are at present great possibilities
in the sport here, but that there are
at the moment, very few properly
trained rowers. He says, "There is
some very promising material among
the freshmen rowers if they would
only come out more on their own initiative. Rowers are showing a great
deal more enthusiasm than either
Rugby or Basketball and we had
fifty-eight men out on Saturday.
Coach Brown complains that the lack
of equipment is the prime factor in
the holding back of the club. Sev-
now using were given to us by the
U. of W. They are in veVy bad shape
eral yaars ago the two eights we are
this year and will be useless by next
year. What we need is a new eight
and new oars.
Varsity Will Try For
Second Win Tonight
Rookies Intend to Stop Winning Streak of
Province Stars
Varsity's Senior A basketballers will be fighting to keep
out of the league cellar (not wine-cellar) on Tuesday night.
They play in their own gym against Province at 9 o'clock, and
have hopes that being on their home floor will help them to beat
the high-scoring newsboys.
■0 V.A.C. and Varsity are now tied
with two points each. V.A.C., however, have played one more game
than the U.B.C. team, so a win for
Varsity would elevate them over the
V.A.C. team.
The Thunderbirds have recently
changed their coach, Ivor Moe, with
Dr. G. Garnet Montgomery, and consider themselves very fortunate in
securing the services of so able a
mentor. Dr. Montgomery Is now
coaching the Varsity girls' team and
he coached the boys' team which won
the Dominion championship several
years ago. Outside activities called
him away for a number of years, but
he has now returned to his former
The Varsity team has picked up so
much lately that they are expected
to give Province a good battle. In
the last league game Province had to
give their best to beat V.A.C. Since
Varsity defeated V.A.C. in their last
game, this should augur well for the
Thunderbird's chances. The building
is being heated.

First Game of New Sport To Be
Played Wednesday Noon
SCOOP!—The senior soccer squad
has challenged the senior basketball
team to a game of BASKSOC to be
played in the gym at 12:15 on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
The soccermen have decided to enter the realm of the melon-tossers
and think that they will prove that
they are equally adept at using their
hands as they are at using their feet.
This team has a strong notion that
they will win as they play a clean
and close-checking game. The soccermen boast a strong squad, the dimensions and qualifications of which
are given below:
Bill (Big Bad) Wolfe , . . Capt

Basketball Rules Are Changed
There will be a big boxing and
wrestling meet in the gym on Thursday noon. A small fee of five cents
15c) will be charged for admission
to see these beautiful behemoths
_ The new rules in basketball have
been .so adapted that they will eliminate the pivot post or man-in-the-
hole play, crowding around the centre circle for tho toss-up and the undue advantage of tall players.
To banish the pivot post play, this
rule has been accepted: "Any offensive player may not remain in
the free throw urea with or without
the ball more than three seconds except when trying for a loose ball."
Crowding around a toss-up will be
eliminated by completing the present
circle at the f T" throw line and using
it as a resti"iinin,7 circle during jump
ball at thc fre:> throw line. Th-J penalty for enteruv' the circle before the
ball is tapped in an "out of bounds"
for the opposia * team.   The referees
may also place players who are
crowding around the jumpers at any
point on the floor. To speed up the
game, this rub has been adopted: "In
case of a free throw which has been
scored following a personal foul or
the last free throw after a multiple
throw, the ball will be awarded to
the offending team at any point on
the end line. Time will be out until
the ball is put into play."
The referees \wll now be able to
banish a player for a single unsportsmanlike infrue',ion of the rules and
also, will havo authority to award
two free throws when a player Is
fouled after having cleared the defense although not in the act of
A smooth-passing, fast-breaking
bunch of Division 3 Basketballers
scored an easy 31-9 victory over a
Senior A quintette in the opening
game of the Inter-Divisional  Series.
Although bolstered by Bill Patmore
of the Senior A squad, who accounted
for 4 of their 9 points, the Seniors
werd hopelessly outclassed by a team
of Juniors, composed mainly of former and present Senior B stars. .
Thurber, one of the mainstays of
the Soccer team, and Patmore, a Senior A star, were the pick of the Seniors; while Idyll and Stockvis were
the shining lights of the Division 4
offense, collecting 9 and 8 points respectively. -TURNER.
Women Begin
Inter-Class Sport
lnter-class competition in basketball and badminton to be played during the longer noon-hour will begin
this week. Please cooperate with your
class representative by making yourself known to her, if she has not already got in touch with you.
The athletic representatives are:
Arts '36, May Mellish; Arts '37, Helen
Parker; Arts '38, Pat Lafon; Arts '39,
(until elections) Beth Evans; Education, Audrey Munton.
Watch notice board for practices.
Team selected this week. All those
that have goal-keeping experience
turn out, as there is an opening for
a good goalie of Junior age (19 years).
(Those interested write particulars to
R. Cudmore, Arts Letter Rack).
The junior soccer squad failed to
touch the Renfrew Thistles on Saturday. The Thistles brought down ten
points while the Varsity team, Rosie
Okuda, to be exact, brought in just
one. This man would have been a
senior, however, if he had registered
in time.
After wallowing around for a long
hour in the mud, U.B.C. Women's
grass hockey team secured their third
consecutive win by a 2-1 score over
Grandview Grads. It was a slow game
in which everyone, including the referee, got plastered with mud. Although all the co-eds gave a good
account of themselves in the scrimmage, Margaret Evans, defence player  for  U.B.C,  was  outstanding.
