Extraordinary A.M.S.
Meeting to Discuss
Eligibility System
New Standard to be Set for Inter-Collegiate
and all Athletic Contests. Literary Also
to be Controlled by New Rules.
■
Eligibility, that bug-bear of athletics, will be the subject
under discussion at the extra-ordinary meeting of the Alma
Mater Society meeting to be held Friday noon.
What is commonly known as fhae) 	
"point system" of eligibility has been
evolved, but one member of council
Is of the opinion that the regulations
have been drawn up with the idea
of favoring one particular sport The
rules were drawn up by a special
committee from the Men's Athletic
Executive and were passed unanimously by that body. As the motion
called for a revision of one by-law
of the constitution, Students' Council
did not consider the matter formally.
Hence the A.M.S. meeting.
The new system provides for all
activities under the jurisdiction of the
vAlma Mater society. That is, it covers
men's and women's athletics, ond all
activities under the scope of the Literary and Scientific executive.
The idea is this: when the new
council Is elected, one of their first
jobs is to be the appointment of a
points committee. The duties of this
committee shall be to assign to each
and every acivlty. Although no provision is made that nothing shall be
rated at more than en points, it is
generally conceded that ten points is
the maximum.
Any student, whether attending the
University for the first time or not,
is to be allowed to participate in
extra-curricular activities up to a
maximum of ten points regardless of
his scholastic standing. If a student
wishes to take part to a greater extent
he must have a good and complete
standing. Between ten and fifteen
points, the student must have over
fifty percent, fifteen to twenty points
of activities necessitates an average of
over sixty percent, and twenty to
twenty-five over sixty-five percent,
and twenty-five points Is the maximum.
All these marks are referred to as
"last available marks." That Is to say,
unless midterms In all a student's
courses are given, he can not be excluded for failures.
The main trouble that has developed,
seems to be the disparagement between the present system of eligibility
in force and the set of rules enforced
by the W.C.I.A.U. with which is
affiliated the M.A.A. of this University. Advocates of the point system
state that as long as fifty-percent
rules are in force here, weaker teams
will be representing this institution,
than will represent other universities,
because the W.C.I.A.U. rules call for
a pass in two-thirds of a student's
previous year's courses.
There is also considerable dissatisfaction rife in athletic circles concerning the way the eligibility rules
and the non-outside participation
regulation, can combine to stop a student completely from participation In
any sport whatsoever. It is claimed
that this is totally unfair, both to the
individual and to the sport ln which
he Is taking part.
The ten-point system outlined in
this story Is modeled on the one at
present In force In Oregon universities, and provides for a proper registration and classification of all students enjoying participation in any
activity. The final responsibility for
keeping this registration up to date
rests with the president of the organization concerned.

PROFESSOR F. G. C. WOOD
For fifteen years Professor Wood
has guided the destinies of the Play
era Club, in his capacity of Director
and Honorary President. Coming to
the Players Club when it was in its
infancy. Prof. Wood, by his untiring efforts, has made possible much
of the success that the Club has met
with in recent years. Members of
the Players Club recently presented
Professor Wood with a silver tray, in
appreciation of his untiring services.
Committee Will
Report Decision
To Senate Soon
At thc first meeting of tho Special
Committee appointed by the Senate
to report on the resolutions passed
by the Board of Governors at their
meeting, February 8th, Dr. W. B.
Burnett was chosen Chairman and
Prof. H, F. Angus, Secretary.
The Governors made the following
resolutions at their meeting of February 8, and it is the purpose of the
committee to report on them to the
Senate, Wednesday night:
"That in the opinion of the Board
funds be allocated to the Faculties
of Agriculture, Arts and Science and
Applied  Science as follows:
First—That student fees be credited to the respective Faculties in
which they register.
Second:   That  after   deducting  the
Musical Requests
To Be Big Feature
Of Leap Year Fete
Harold King's orchestra will feature
an all-request program at the fifth
annual Co-ed Ball, when the Womens
Undergraduate Society entertains to
provide funds for the erection of a
Women's Union Building on the campus. The function takes place in the
Auditorium on Georgia street on leap-
year day, February 29, from 9-1.
All requests are to be turned in to
the Publications Office not later than
3 p.m. Wednesday, and the entire
program will be selected from these
request numbers. This should assure
a peppier program than usual for this
year's effort.
After the recommendation that no
public parties be held, numerous
private parties, both before and after
the dance are being arranged. These
will take the form of dinner parties,
and after-the-ball suppers and dances.
Rumour has it that Council will
hold their weekly meeting on the
usual Monday night, despite the Co-ed
Ball. There seems to be enough of the
august executive left for a quorum.
Council seems to be luckier in its
own meetings than in Alma Mater
meetings.

RUSSIAN LIFE
DISCUSSED BY
LR.C.SPEAKER
Miss Moran entertained the Inter-
nation Relations Club with a talk,
and led discussion on .Russia, at a
meeting of the society held at the
home of Margaret Black, Thursday,
February 18.
Miss Moran expressed the belief
that there is much hope for Russian
society. The abandoned palaces have
not been harmed and the traveller
may still see the luxury of the old
regime. Moscow still has her art,
her opera and her theatrical masterpieces. The cities overflow with
people from the country. Congested
traffic, huge street crowds and Jammed apartment houses show the concentration of effort on industry Instead of the devlopment of home and
public utilities. Oood, but plain
food, is cheap and easy to get.
The Young Communists are Intelligent and democratic, with a wonderful interest in their country. They
have made the government strong
and effective.
Woman's place in Russia is decidedly improved. Every woman
works and participates ln everything
receiving equal wages with men.
Children are left at a community
nursing centre while their mothers
are at a factory. Hospitals are rough
but well-supported and the medical
attention is free. Surgery is of the
best.
Factories are also connected with
Prison-houses where the inmates are
put to work. These prisoners are
cheerful and talkative. They receive wages and educational advan-
wages, but the political prisoner Is
severely dealt with, usually receiving corporal punishment.
Because Russia Is afraid of blockade and war, she is thoroughly prepared for both. Everywhere there
is a spirit of Independence and a
readiness to fight for her ideals.
Many interesting points were mentioned when the meeting was thrown
open for discussion.

Terrible Toils
Trail Troubled
Totem Editors
BY LEONA NELSON.
Many good yarns have arisen out
of the recent student publicity campaign, but if someone ventured to
whisper that as good a story could
develop in the insignificant office of
the Totem everybody would laugh.
Well, read thls:-
The first unpleasant task of one of
the assistants was to telephone the
homes of all those students who had
neglected to have their pictures
taken. At some of the homes the
students in question were there, but
in others their mothers or fathers
answered the phone. One poor woman said that she had done everything in her power to make her son
have his picture taken, but he would
not go down to the studio. I relate
this incident as a rare experience
because, according to our records,
the flirst students to go down to the
studio were the men. However, to
get on with my story, I looked down
my list, and discovered that I was
tn call up a person called "Alvah."
My first worry was to the sex I
adopted an Ingenious method of getting around the problem.
(Meek voice): 'Is Alvah at home,
please?"
(A woman at the other end):'No,
Alvah isn't home now."
(Persisting    in    saying     Alvah):

overheard In the cafeteria and busses.
Tricky skirts and blazers, and knitted 'When will Alvah be home?"

equally between the respective Faculties.
Third: That this resolution be
communicated with the Senate.
The Committee appointed to report on these resolutions has been
meeting every .evening anywhere
from two to four hours, and its report will be handed to the Senate
on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m.   	
Cheques from the Book Exchange must be called for by
Thursday noon. The Exchange
will be closed after that date
until the conclusion of spring
exams. About a hundred
cheques have yet to be claimed.
school—you will be able to see him
there at four o'clock."
The woman was undoubtedly angry, but the hysterical inquisitor began to giggle. After making enquiries some time later as to the past
life of friend Alvah she discovered:
(1) Alvah is a middle-aged man.
(2) Alvah has a wife and family.
Imagine    Mrs.    Alvah's    thoughts
when an impertinent young assistant
insisted   on  speaking  to   Alvah.
Now for some news of what has
been going on for the past month In
tho Totem office. Monthly bridge;
yes, but not participated in by the
Totem office. They are not committing themselves.
This year the 3taff decided to introduce some color into the annual.
Two splendid ideas were born, But
on account of the depression, cut,
etc., we cannot carry them both
through. Those of you who bought
a last year's annual will remember
the frontispiece—a bird's-eye view
of the campus. The new idea was
to  have   the   same   picture,   but   to
"To F. O. C. 'Freddie' Wood from
the members of the Players Club of
the University of British Columbia
hi appreciation of his 18 years invaluable service as Director and
Honorary President."
Thia Inscription surmounted by the
University crest, and dated February
21, 1932, wu engraved on a large
Stirling tray presented to Professor
Wood by all the members, past as
well as active, of the University
Players' Club.
A tea held last Sunday at the
home of the President, Alice Morrow, culminated several months
planning on the part ot the executive whereby some official recognition of Professor Wood's work might be
expressed. Messages of congratulations and good-will came from all
parts of the globe, including England, Mexico, and China.
In a brief speech, the President
intimated the value of the Professor's accomplishments and took
pleasure in presenting i token of
appreciation.
Professor Wood replied, in what
he called "His last thank-you speech
to the Players' Club" with very evident sincerity and graceful adequacy. He pointed out that he left
the club not without some regret,
and many pleasant memories both of
tour and of the founding of the
club. He lauded the members of
the first Players' Club executive,
which with him, had the audacity to
hire a down-town theatre, and put
on the first Spring Play, during the
middle of the World War, and had
their efforts rewarded by a net profit of $167.50.
He said that the club was very
grateful for the valuable assistance
rendered during Its rise by the cooperation of Dr. Ashton, Dr. Clark,
Dr. Larsen, and Dr. Walker (the
ptesent honorary president).
He expressed his belief that the
club had reached a very high standard of excellence, and voiced his
hope that It would endeavor to
maintain that standard.
Among those present at the reception were two members' of the
original executive, Mrs. James Lawrence, and Patrick Fraser. Other
early members present included Mrs.
Earnest Rogers, Mrs. Gordon Shrum.
It was largely through the efforts
of Professor Wood that the University now has a good auditorium. The
Players' Club has bought over $2000
worth of equipment for the stage,
including the background curtains,
and all the electrical equipment, and
a permanent plaster cyclorama
screen. The screen is a valuable asset and when built was the only
one of Its kind In Canada.
Not only this, but the Players'
Club paid for most of the cost of
building the University Tennis
Courts, and during the war was of
very material assistance to the Red
Crow.
B.C.E.R. POWER
DEPT. DEVELOPS
NEW HOT-BEDS
Some time last term, the Ubyssey
received a news clipping from California on the value of electric hotbeds In agriculture. It is Interesting
now to note that the light and power
department of the B.C. Electric Railway Company has just carried out
the installation of an electric hot-bed
in the grounds of one of the most
prominent commercial garden produce growers of the city.
A great deal of experimental work
has been done in recent years using
electric -heat for hot-beds. This
form of heat has many Inherent advantages over the old method. The
apparatus is quickly and easily Installed, and the hot-beds can be
turned off and on depending on the
outside weather conditions.
The electric hot-bed is very flexible. The gardener can iorce or retard growth at will, thereby fixing
with greater accuracy the time of
field planting. By simply shutting
off the current the bed can be used
as a cold frame. The equipment
may be used for several years, and
can be put into operation any time
by merely turning a switch. Automatic control can readily be used to
keep the soil at any predetermined
temperature, all these advantages
improving working conditions and
reducing operating costs.
Some idea of the importance of
this development can be gained from
figures supplied by the Provincial
Department of Agriculture, Hortl
cultural Branch. The annual value
of greenhouse products ln British
Columbia Is over $6,900,000. Of this
amount the lower mainland produces $2,990,000 and Vancouver Island is 3,790,000 square feet.

FULL ATTENDANCE
F0RJARRIE PLAY
Tickets for the Players' Club Spring
Play, scheduled for March 9-13 may
now be obtained from any member
of the club. Archie Dick, business
manager, expects a complete sell-out
in view of the fact that the play,
"Alice-sit-by-the-fire" is written by
Sir James M. Barrie, and that three
members of the cast have one Spring
performance to their credit already.
Anyone who has seen "Dear Brutus" or "Quality Street," cannot fall
to appreciate Barrie's interesting
style, and this play is no exception
with its entertaining manners.
The quality of the play Is alao
attested by the number of famous
actresses who have played its title
role, among them being Ellen Terry
and Ethel Barrymore.
A feature ef the play thia year la
that it will be done in the costumes
and furnishings of London of 1903.
The costumes and scenery committees are paying very close attention
to this phase of the play, and have
taken great pains to become well
acquainted with the minutest details
of the fashions of that period. It la
expected that this feaure will create
an especial curiosity for the students
most of whom will not remember
what their mothers and fathers, were
wearing in 1903.
The director, Sidney Risk, reports
that the cast are now rapidly near-
ing perfection. He expects to have
no difficulty with any defects during the.next week because three of
the cast, namely Midge Ellis, Nancy
Symes, and Jack Ruttan were in the
Spring play last year, and competition for the other roles has been
exceptionally keen.

'Pinafore' Success
Predicted; Opera
To Run Four Days
Entire Cast Work Hard Putting Finishing
Touches to One of Most Delightful of
Gilbert and Sullivan's Operas
After putting the last finishing touches to their Gilbert and
Sullivan opera "H.M.S. Pinafore" in the dress rehearsals, the
Musical Society presents their second production from the pen
of those famous men. The curtain rises at 8:20 Wednesday for
the first time, but four performances are scheduled.
The rough corners have been
rounded off, and a polished performance is expected. Rehearsals have
been almost dally since the beginning
of the year, and stage work has been
done steadily since the 27th of January, when Edgar Smith, dramatic
director,    took   charge.
The opera is being staged exactly
as the D'Oyley Carte Opera Company
do it. Costumes, chorus and all will
be as nearly as possible a replica of
the way these world-famous opera
players have shown Pinafore all over
the world.
The scene of the opera is set on the
deck of H.M.S. Pinafore. The Captain's daughter, Josephine, is in love
with a sailor on her father's ship. Her
father, however, will not consider giving his consent to a marriage with a
"common tar," and wishes her to be
bethrothed to Sir Joseph Porter, Admiral of the fleet. The situation is
cleared up through the agency of an
old woman, Mrs. Gripps, former nurse
to both the captain and Ralph Rack-
straw, the sailor, when she confesses
that she changed the two infants, and
that tho captain is in reality a common
sailor, while Ralph should be the
captain. Josephine marries Ralph and
he takes command of the ship in a
characteristic Gilbert and Sullivan
denouement.
Josephine, the demure daughter of j
the captain is being played by Alice
Rowe. The part of the Captain is taken
by Bob Harcourt who is new to the
society this year. Bob Brooks who will
be remembered as the Major General
of last year's "Pirates of Penzance,"
will play the haughty and pompous
Sir Joseph. Another newcomer to the
Club is Neil Perry who appears as
Ralph. The comic element is supplied
by Nelson Allen as Dick Deadeye.
Allen can almost be classed aa a
veteran of the society.
H, M. S. Pinafore contains many
beautiful solos and a great deal of
effective choral work. The production
of the Musical Society,promises to be
a creditable and finished performance.
Musical Director
C. HADYN WILLIAMS
Mr. Williams has been the conductor
of the Musical Society for some years,
and has done a great deal to bring
the society to its present high standard.
He is directing the choral and orchestral work for "H.M.S. Pinafore." Page Two

THAT HAPPY MEDIUM
The complicated question of eligibility ig to
be considered once more and a special Alma
Mater meeting has been called for next Friday
for the purpose of submitting the matter to the
student body. A group of students has presented a document setting forth a point basis
for eligibility. As this new system stands at the
present time the whole power of deciding who
is eligible for the various activities rests with
Students' Council.
A great deal of discussion has been rife of
late concerning eligibility and it would be
foolish to deny that it has been the application
of the existing rules which has caused the
matter to be brought forward once again. It
seems a pity that the students or their representatives cannot decide definitely what they
want in this direction but of course if the rules
really are unsatisfactory as they stand at
present it is right that they should be changed
and it is to be hoped that what is decided this
year will not be found unreasonable next.
The real point at issue appears to be
whether or not a student should be allowed
to take part in one major activity regardless of
his or her academic standing. There can be no
doubt that extra curricular activities form an
essential part of a college education. Therefore if a student has the necessary qualifications to attend university he should be allowed
and be capable of taking part in such activities.
If the University authorities consider that the
student is worth keeping at the institution he
has every right to share in the opportunities
which it offers and because his academic standing may suffer to a small degree, is no reason
for arguing that he should confine his attention
solely to his curricular work. However, in this
as in all things it is probable that there is a
happy medium. There are certain "major"
activities on the campus which a student whose
standing was anything less than second class
could not possibly handle without almost certain loss of his year. It is obvious therefore
that the greatest care should be exercised in
determining what is a major activity for the
purpose of eligibility. Whether or not playing
on the first team of a major sport requires so
much time that it will entirely destroy the balance between curricular and extra-curricular
activity is difficult to say; only those who have
taken part in such competition are qualified to
judge.
The Ubyssey believes that every student
who has the standing necessary to remain at
college should be given the privilege of taking
part in some form of outside pursuit regardless of his or her standing. It further believes
that there are certain activities on the campus
which are altogether too much for a student
of low academic standing and eligibility rules
should be formulated which will prevent such
students from participating in these activities.
The point system which has been suggested
would seem to make possible a correct determination of the relative values and sacrifices
incurred by various activities. Only time can
tell whether any committee of students is
capable of efficiently allotting points to the
different pursuits.
BRAINS VERSUS BEAUTY
Nominations for the position of President of
the Alma Mater Society are to be submitted by
Monday, February 29. It is always interesting
to see the outcome of student elections, for on
a small scale they are as rife with prejudice and
thoughtlessness as the elections of a national
state. The prejudice, be it said, is most often on
the part of the voters who find in a popular,
confident, smooth-tongued candidate all those
superior qualities and characteristics supposed
to mark the leader.
The fact that everybody knows him, that he
has had some executive experience, that he
"knows the ropes," cannot be taken as proof
conclusive of his real ability to handle a position
of responsibility second to none other on the
campus. The President of the Alma Mater Society need not be the man everybody knows.
A while ago I said that students hoped the
whole University would stand together in this j
period of crisis. That hope has now been dissipated. A prominent senator
Comments, and has criticised the faculty of
A Sermon Agriculture and the govern
ing bodies of the University.
Students who have been watching the situation
closely had expected an outburst from some
quarter. The reaction to Dr. Vance's speech,
as far as I have been able to gather, is that,
whether the criticisms were wise or unwise at
this time, it is a relief to hear one of the authorities speak frankly and boldly about the University.
I leave it to the editors to comment on the
speech as a whole (unless they choose to close
their eyes to it), and will confine myself to
discussing two or three points .
Dr. Vance said the cut has wrecked the
esprit de corps of the faculty. If that be true,
then there must have been precious little esprit
de corps to wreck. How much esprit is there
in an esprit de corps that melts away so quickly
in the face of difficulty? Dr. Vance added
that no self-respecting man will stay if he can
get another position. It seems to me a strange
kind of self-respect that would make a man
desert U.B.C. at this time for the sake of a
higher salary.
Student officials know only too well the
difficulty of obtaining satisfactory information
about University finances. In the city and
province, as well as on the campus, a complete
and detailed investigation of the whole matter
would be welcomed.
"The University needs leadership, organizing ability, policy, inspiration and unity," declared Dr. Vance. There is an appalling lack
of these things everywhere today. Of temporizers, reactionaries, dictators and would-be
dictators, of little men with big voices, of opportunists and charlatans, there is no lack,
but, in all the capitalist world, what men are
there willing to meet the present problems
boldly and progressively?
To my mind, a true leader has one aim—
the welfare of the people. He must not follow
bewildered "public opinion," but lead it; he
must not wallow in party politics; he must be
above all hint of pettiness, corruption, and
private gain. His task is to preach a gospel,
to set forth social ideals and work sternly for
them; he must be plain-spoken and bold—a
man for whom men of good-will will work, a
man whom the people will follow; an inspirational leader, yet one who can produce results.
He must be a man of education, of foresight,
of broad humanity, free from the conventions,
ties and bias of any circle, and devoted solely
to the interests of society.
Examine the records, motives, ideals of our
"leaders." However well-intentioned, they fall
short of real greatness. Mahatma Gandhi, imprisoned in India, ridiculed by the world, is
the nearest approach to an inspirational leader
that there is today.
How is the present crisis being met? What
measures have been taken that are more than
palliative? "Economy" is the watchword: at
the command of financiers, governments and
private businesses reduce expenditures, discharge employees. How does this help, from
the point of view of society? The people's'bur-
den increases, yet they have little control of
the financial machine. Society is not organized. It has muddled through before, and is
expected to do so again. In Britain, Ramsay
MacDonald found the task of social leadership
too great. He backed down and let the people
be bally-hooed into reaction, and it is now
hoped that business can be artificially stimulated into prosperity.   In the United States,
He may find it easier to steer a just and even
course if he isn't quite so much the friend of a
dozen different factions. On the other hand he
must be a man who has some knowledge of a
serviceable kind of the inner mechanism of the
University, and of student activities in particular.
Of course, if a candidate's popularity is
really the reward of long and painstaking service in the interests of Varsity, if his experience
is of the kind likely to be of use in his new
position, if he is known to have tact as well as
discretion, he may with justice be regarded as
a likely man for the position.
Nor is it always to be a maxim that the man
with a year's experience on Council is invariably the best one for the position of A. M. S.
candidate. The justice of this statement will
itself preclude any intimation that the Ubyssey
is a partisan of any candidate. It is a fact that
there are a number of men on the campus who
never held places on Council, but who are
undeniably well-equipped to compete with the
more experienced men. Should some of these
consider running for the position it is at least
fair to say that their innate ability should in no
way be disparaged because their opponents may
have been members of Council.

PROS AND CONS?
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
While not questioning the wisdom
of the Co-eds in deciding not to have
supper parties at their annual dance,
allow me to point out a few objec-
tllns, which, I hope, may influence
them the next time they have this
decision to make.
It is a sad thing to have to drive
straight home after such an affair.
It leaves me, personally, in a dissatisfied state of mind. I find It impossible to get back to work the next
morning. And I might also state that
on Tuesday I have a very important
Chem. Lab., which demands close attention, and an untroubled mind.
Nor is that all. Far from it. I do
not know the reasons for this decision,
but I imagine that the present depression has something to do with it. I
hardly think that is fair. For do not
the men of the Varaity take their
partners to supper after the Formals
of the year? And does this not happen three times to the Co-eds' one?
Surely, If we can afford it three times,
they can afford it once.
I have also heard a person stating
that the appearance of Varsity women
in public places after one o'clock
would give an unfavorable impression of Varsity's social functions. To
that I can only reply that anybody
that is up and (of necessity) dining
and dancing at such an hour are not
the people to point the finger of
shame at us.
I am not accustomed to writing letters which will appear in print, so I
find difficulty ln expressing myself
clearly. What I am trying to point
out Is that the people who object to
us being ln evidence at such a time
should themselves be In bed. If they
are In bed, they will know nothing
anyway of our nocturnal and pre-
matutinal excursions.
I realize that you, Mr. Editor, cannot afford me much more space, ao I
will conclude by suggesting that the
refreshment one receives at these
dances (not, of course, this one in particular) is hardly suitable to support
a strong man after the exertion of
dancing all evening. I mean to say,
there aren't enough calories, what?
Yours very faithfully,
ONE WHO HAS STOPPED, LOOKED
AND LISTENED.

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Allow, me to put forward some
suggestions through the medium of
your valuable paper.
When revenue to the University
from the government is falling off
at a tremendous rate, one way of
cutting down the cost of higher education would be to exclude women
from the University. After all It
is generally the man's job to support
women and men need a University
education more for that reason than
do women.
What help is a degree when you
are washing dishes? What help is
a degree when you are scrubbing
floors? I should Imagine four years
at college would be a hindrance
rather than a help to marital bliss.
The cultivation of expensive tastes
so common among the women of
this University in particular, is hardly conductive to easy economy even
in the girls' own families in such a
time of low income as exists at
present.
Besides women are a distracting
influence. Class parties and other
dances occupy far too much of the
average student's time. If there were
no women on the campus such
would not be the case.
While I am on the subject of
women, let me express an opinion
about the Co-ed Ball. Such a reversal of the ordinary state of affairs cannot but result in the breaking down of morale and the engendering of moral turpitude in an institution which should be free from
taint.

tens of millions are suffering, but the state
continues to evade its responsibilities, preferring the dubious expedient of a hefty hypodermic injection into the hardening financial
arteries, rather than an intelligent effort to
deal with the root of the trouble.
Why do we lack great leaders? Several
influences are hindering their development.
Private profit is the chief and often the only
motive of most of us. The normal-complex induced by the zeal of modern psychologists
makes people afraid of being considered abnormal, yet a great leader would have to dare
the devastating analysis of our psychological
sages. Athletics, organized, financed and propagandized as never before, exalted above their
real and considerable importance, distract and
deflect people from the intellectual and the
"spiritual." The stage and screen, concerned
chiefly with absurdities, monstrosities and sex,
work powerfully to the same end. Sex-consciousness and sex-interest are catered to and
developed inordinately, at the expense of a
sensible attitude and other interests—such as
an interest in social progress. The popular ideal
of "the all-round man" does not encourage the
development of leaders. Few can be "all-
round" and rise above the mediocre: the great
man must break away and devote himself to
his work.
And lastly: sometimes churchmen speak on
current affairs, but it is considered improper
for them to take part in shaping current events.
If men of this type would forego dogmatic theology and take their faith and inspiration into
the council chambers of the people, they would
do more for mankind than by retiring to
churches, there to fan the flames of a dying
religion. The social precepts of Christ are of
universal significance and importance: the
task of the great leader is to present the vitality of these teachings to the blase masses, and
to lead the way to a society that is Christian
in practice as well as in theory. Tuesday, February 23,1932

This little poem (we call it that because it rhymes) has the exquisite

that the poet found the "little book,"

Mystery
By M. E.
This  mystery  has   been   baffling
everybody Including the author, but
he has at last got It straightened out
and submits the last Instalment.
CHAPTER MIL
Blowout peered through the door
and saw Medley talking to Chang
Suey. He reached for a mucky and
in his eagerness, he upset an armoured knight as well aa our plans. ■
Chang spun round on his heel andj-Don't let your baby get cold feet.   Don't forget to tell her this
is Leap Year and that Leap Year comes but once in four.
After you have tried everything else and you are still
waiting for the question, inform her that you may be going to
the Co-ed with someone else. I will admit you are treading on
risky ground when you do this, but it is your last chance. If
it doesn't get you anywhere you may consider yourself a hope-
took In the situation at a glance.
"Ah, Messrs. Blowout and Scribblewell, you have come," he burbled in his quaint accent.
"In the name of the law, I arrest
you, Chang Suey," answered Blowout as he reached for a pair of
cuff-links.
"One moment, please," interrupted
the Chinaman, "I have something to
tell you. The instant you lay hands
on me you will be blown sky-high."
And with a sweep of his arm he
pointed to a crouching form hiding
behind a typewriter. "That is not
a typewriter," explained Chang
Suey, "it is—it ia—It la—It Is, well
I must say that is funny, I've forgotten the name."
"Never mind that," blew Blowout,
"Who killed Freddie Fishsoup?"
"Never mind Fishsoup," countered
Mr. Suey, "your doom is sealed. At
tho stroke of the musical note, you
will be blown up. The—er—typewriter will not fall me." And he
disappeared through a hole in the
wall.
"Get him," yelled Blowout, and
Medley leapt through the gaping hole
and disappeared ln the darkness. I
turned to the typewriter and began
edging my way towards It. The
crouching form behind the machine
quivered, raised both its hands and
then f,tood up.
"I didn't mean anything, I was
only playing," is gasped. I recog-
nixed the voice. So did Blowout.
It was Three Gun Pete.
"What is that typewriter for?"
queried the detective.
"Suey was only bluffing you. It
won't blow you up. It's the crime-
wave machine. It won't work anymore. The carburetor is plugged
and It won't wind up."
"Go on, go on," we prompted.
"I will, I will," answered Three
Gun. "Chang has had me in his
power for months. I killed Fishsoup.
But the crime-machine is broken
new. Chang Suey turned it on me
and then told me to kill Fishsoup."
"But why," we asked.
"Because-er-because Fishsoup
chewed gum In the library, snored
in lectures, kept his spoon In his
coffee and whistled •Pinafore" tunes
on the bus. Oh yes, and he was a
fratman."
"This Indeed Is a revolution," I
exclaimed.
"You mean a revelation," corrected
Three Gun.
"I hear Medley returning," Interrupted Blowout. "Will Chang Suey
be with him?"
The returning footprints grew louder and louder. And still they grew
louder. Surely Sin j in should appear. But no; The footsteps now
sounded like a throbbing drum beat
on Afrlc's shunny sore.
And then the dull pulsating throb
changed to a pie-hitched, high-
pitched, I mean, double-back action,
self adjusting scream.
Then Freddie Fishsoup turned over
and shut off his "Wake you gently"
alarm clock and crawled out of bed.
And he doesn't chew gum in the library any more. And he doesn't
snore In lectures, keep his spoon
in his coffee or whistle "Pinafore"
in the bus.

Your Baby and Mine
This column is a success. I am in receipt of over thirty
letters, from Artsmen, Aggies, Scienemen, and even one from
a co-ed. Last week I recommended taking your baby to the
Shakespearian plays. I will take it for granted that you have
already done that.
Your next step is to take her to tea in the caf., but be careful what you feed her. A baby's food before the Co-ed is
always a problem. I would suggest somehtlng hot. Let her
drink from the bottle freely this week.
There are also some things you must remember not to do.
less case.
My first letter reads:
Dear Mr. M. E.:
I have followed your advice regarding the Co-ed, and I think 1
am progressing favorably. I have already taken her to the Shakesperlan
plays and also to the Canadian Bakeries Ltd., where I covered her with
flour sis you said. I bought her a
pound of dates and told her that
she could give me something In return—She sure can kick and scratch.
I told her that you said she was
to take me to the Co-ed and that
you were always right and that you
were going to be there with Alice-
slt-by-the-fire who was an Indian
princess and besides she had never
taken me out anywhere and anyway I was tired of being broke all
the time and that it was time that
the woman paid. Say what kind of
a time Is tills anyway? Well here
I am and she's mad at me. Do you
think she'll take me to the Co-ed?
While awaiting your reply may you
receive the sincere thanks of
"One who is eternally broke,"
Willie slt-by-the-furnace.
• «-■ •
You are getting along splendidly
Willie. Although you missed the
suggestion about covering her with
"flowers," I believe you meant well
at heart. The date idea was good and
should  bring  results.    If   it   doesn't
give her a bag of lemons.
• •  •
You shouldn't tell lies about Alice-
sir-by-the-flre and myself. I am not
going to the Co-ed with her. Alice
(1 call her Alice for short) says I
am too good for her and she vill
not stand ln my way Instead she
sits by the fire. That's the way to
have them trained, Willie.
More power to you, Willie slt-by-
the-furnace.   Get hot!
Dear Sir or Madam, (as the case
may be):
At a time like the present your
new 'column comes as a welcome
aid. I have been truly worried as
to my technique and now you
have vindicated my methods with
your sanction. That Is all but the
part about being sorry there were
to be no shows on February 29.
I thought about that but decided
it was too risky. After all, you
know, all the regular shows are going on that day. I decided to mention that I was sorry there were no
decent shows on February 29. Do
you think that would do?
I would like a Uttle advice on
whether I am allowed to put my
arm around her. Shouldn't she make
all the advances? And what should
I order afterwards. Last year I
asked for a planked steak rare, and
a double order of French-fried, but
when it came she ate half of it—
v.'hat should I do to stop that?
Do you think I should drop any
hints as to what flowers would go
well with my swell new shirt that
I'm buying specially for the occas-
YOUR BABY AND MINE
ion? Don't you think aspidistras are
nice? I don't know what they look
like, but the name sounds so aristocratic.
I'm just dying to get your answers
to all these questions. And how's
Ethel?
Yours in anticipation,
"Puzzled"
• •  •
"Puzzled" did right in telling his
baby there were no decent shows on
the twenty-ninth. Martin Harvey is
playing at the Vancouver that week.
Yes, you may put your arm around
her  (if you can get it around).
• •  •
Should she make all the advances?
Certainly not. If the mountain won't
go to Mohamet, Mohamet must go
to the mountain. You say she eats
half your supper. Evidently you
can't eat fast enough.
• •   •
And you want flowers for a new
shirt you are going to buy. (Will
ycu lend me your old one)? Aspidistras are nice, all right, but she'd
have quite a time getting them unless she knows how to pronounce
the name. The season is a bit too
early for dandelions but I believe
those would go best with your new
shirt.
«   *   »
And about "How's Ethel," manger
own business.
Dear Mr. M. E.:
If you must be free with your advice to college men (?) that want
bids to the Co-ed, why not make it
good? For one thing, the best way
to interest a girl at Varsity is to
write her essay for her. (I have five
essays due now). And another
Good Thing is to take her to the
C 0. T. C. Ball. It's rather suggestive, If you see what I mean.
But the best way to get a bid to
the Co-ed is to suggest that you go
Dutch. And if that doesn't get a
bid, nothing will.
Anything else you'd like to know?
ONE OF THE BABIES
•   *   *
Glad to hear from you, Baby. I'll
bo In the north whig of the Library
tomorrow afternoon to write those
essays for you. You can go Dutch
to the Co-ed but I'll go crazy first.
Incidentally, the C. O. T. C. affair
is after the Co-ed but I guess I can
make It.

"Resolved that Congress should adopt
legislation providing for the centralized control of industry," will give an
excellent opportunity for budding
capitalists and socialists to exchange
verbal blows. The U.B.C. team willj

Vic Dryer, Neil Perry and Harold
Brown are some of the leading candidates for the team.
The subject has already been debated In the Forum resulting In a
defeat of the government upholding
the negative. The constitutionality of
the question is waived, consequently
preventing any quibbling over the
political practicability of the question. The standard of debating on the
campus seems to be on the upgrade
if the results of the Inter-collegiate
debates are any Indication. Both teams
lost by very narrow margins and the
possibilities of victory over William-

Theatre Review
"THE SLIPPER HANGS LOOSE"
A Play by Sophipides, in Collaboration with George Bernard Ibsen
This is a delightfully intimate little story, In the modern risque manner, of the Love-Life of A Garbage
Man. The Garbage Man, Algernon
Percy Wistlewaite, is, of course, the
leading man.
So many of the modern plays ot
this type have involved a Third Woman, that it ia very refreshing to
find here a story of a man who
loved only one woman. What if she
was a wife?   She was hla wife.
There are some gorgeous settings
ln the play. The street scene, in
Act 1, is simply magnificent. The
Incinerator in the background lends
reality to the scenery. The street
itself reminds one of the watery
Highways of Venice, under the
moonlight. One thinks of the gondola's meter gently, almost shyly,
ticking out its inexorable fifty cents
an hour.
The costumes in the Garbage Men's
Annual Ball scene are enough to
turn any Parisian dressmaker's head.
Yards and yards of silks and satins
rub elbows with quarts and quarts
of diamonds, emerald and ruby gems.
These, by the way, are genuine, or
so their press-agent told me.
The play is  outstanding   for   its
skillful direction,  Its exquisite acting, Its richness of diction and language, and for its fresh, delicate plot.
*  •  •
Reviewers Note: We had to give
this show a good write-up, because
the company gave us free tickets.
Really, though, the play is one of
the most unholy collections of pure,
unadulterated bilge that it has ever
been my fate to have to listen to.
I'm so mad I even went and finished
my last sentence with a preposition,
and I don't even care.
The leading man is an illiterate,
uncultivated, unintelligent boor. He
can't even think, he can't imitate the
outward semblance of all that's
good In a Garbage Man.

SUPPORT FROM THE EAST
In an editorial entitled "University
Conscious," the U. of Western Ontario
ably supports universities in general
and U.B.C. in particular. After reviewing the situation here, the article
continues, quoting General Sir Arthur
Currie: "There was never a time in
the world's history when the contribution of the university to the community and to the nation was as great
or as necessary as it is today. Our
days are days of perplexity; hysteria
and confusion of mind."
Besides transmitting the best thinking of one generation to the next,
the university makes innumerable material contributions which are greater in communities where the institution exists.
In these times of financial stringency, it is necessary for every business man to make certain savings in
those departments that are not absolutely essential to the continuance
of operations. "This hurts me worse
than you" is probably the sentiment
expressed by the B.C. government regarding the cut of $230,000.
\ Do the people of British Columbia
really appreciate their university?
Evidently they consider it of secondary Importance—something to be reduced, to decrease the "overhead" expense of the province.
We wish the U.B.C. students Im
best of luck in their efforts to convince the legislators that now, more
than ever before, the university can
serve the community. The "intellectual muscle" of youth Is needed to
solve present day problems. It should
not be discouraged.
The University of Western Ontario
seems to have sized the situation up
to a nicety, and we take this opportunity of thanking the "Gazette" for
its noble support.

that the team's great fault ia inability to Mite opportunities. Equal to
their opponents in defence and mid-

their openings, and paid the penalty.
For the first fifteen minutes of the

in their own half of the field, and
did everything but score. The Point
Grey custodian waa called on to save
from almost every member of (he
forward line, while Kozoolin skimmed the bar with an effort from
outside the penalty area. Munday
almost succeeded in converting two
of several well placed corners, heading over the bar from close range.
However, Point Grey staved off disaster until they found their feet, and
Varsity's chance was gone.
Point Grey finally managed to
reach Varsity area, and from then
on the game was even. Finally, in
a scrimmage in the Varsity goalmouth, a penalty was awarded to
the "Greys." Frattinger was on the
job, however, and pulled down the
Keddie's drive under the bar. Play
ranged quickly from end to end,
and after a nice bit of combination
by Kozoolin and Dave Todd had
failed, the suburbanites returned to
the other end to score the first goal
through Keddie. It was a first time
effort through the corner, and gave
Frattinger no chance. It was the
only goal of the game. The struggle
now produced some very good football, and was very fast. McGill and
Grant were a sure defence, while
Varsity's attacks, although often
penetrating the penalty area, brought
no results. At half-time the score
was 1-0 for the United,.
After the Interval Varsity switched
the Une-up, Kozoolin going to centre-half, and Costain to centre-forward. This appeared to strengthen
the team, but failed to produce any
goals. The play In this stanza was
a repetition of that of the later half
of the first period. There was little
to choose between the teams, and
both goalies had several anxious
moments. Varsity appeared at times
to have the equalizing goal, but each
time they were foiled by the opposing goalie, who turned in a fine
g&me. During this half, a little ill-
feeling crept in, but the difficulties
were smoothed over without anyone
being sent off. Toward the close of
tht struggle, Costain sent in a beautiful over-head shot which the goalie just managed to snare under the
bar. Soon after the whistle ended
the game and Varsity's hopes for
the silver-ware.
McGill was again outstanding for
Varsity, and was the mainstay of the
defence. Kozoolin, especially in the
second half, showed up well, as did
Frattinger in goal. The main fault
of the team was the lack of finish
in front of goal.
The team: Frattinger, McGill,
Grant, Wright, Kozoolin, McDougal,
Smith, Munday, Costain, D. Todd,
and L. Todd.

Olympiad Rowers
To Find Comfort
At Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California.—Construction of boat houses, floats and other
equipment necessary to complete preparations for the rowing events of the
Games of the Xth Olympiad, which
are to be celebrated in this city from
July 30 to August 14, is now under
way, according to the Organizing
Committee for the Games.
The races will be held in Long
Beach Marine Stadium, 40 minutes
from Olympic Stadium, for five days
beginning August 9. Events include
four-oared shells with coxswain, pair-
oared boats without coxswain, single
sculls, two-oared shells with coxswain,
four-oared shells without coxswain,
double sculls without coxswain and
eight-oared shells.
Long Beach Marine Stadium comprises a fresh-salt water course of
sufficient length to contain a splendid
2000-metre straightaway course. More
than 100,000 spectators can view the
races from the bordering shore, and
grand stands to accommodate 10,000
more, are being built. Construction
work now going on includes also
dressing rooms, containing lockers and
shower baths for the oarsmen as well
as lounges and dining rooms.
FROM THE PRESS
In less than two weaks the Blue
and Gold basketball stars of the
University of British Columbia will
start a campaign In defense of the
Canadian Championship which they
won last spring, and the boys are
beginning to take things seriously.
Under the guiding hand of Coach
Arnold Henderson the student hoopsters have been showing some improvement throughout the year, but
lack of competition haa caused the
collegians to eaae up on their training.
• •   e
Then there has been the question
of eligibility, which hain't helped
the cage artists any. Some of the
basket men have felt that they
weren't getting a break where the
council had a hand in it There has
also been to some extent the attitude that the present squad was
not strong enough to compete in
the Dominion playdowns. Thia has
been dispelled, however, by the con-
testa with Ellensburg and Blaine,
and the students at. getting over
their Inferiority complex.
• •  •
The eligibility rules are coming up
on Friday for consideration at a meeting of the students. There are two
sides to the question, naturally, and
both aides have sound arguments to
back their views. Plainly the supporters of the new eligibility code are
far more biased than the Students'
Council, and Council has not lent Its
support to the move. The student executive has nothing to gain by throwing out any changes suggested ln the
regulations, and It would seem that
the action of the Students' Council has
been solely for the good of the University and the Alma Mater Society.
• •  •
Varsity track men are working
out three times a week in preparation for the Interclass and Inter-
faculty contests, as well as for the
meet with the College of Puget
Sound which will be staged in Vancouver some time in March. The
cinder men are certainly showing
plenty of ambition this season, and
should easily avenge the defeat received In Tacoma last year. Ralph
Thomas, the track prexy, has lined
up a formidable aggregation, and is
doing heroic work in building up a
first class team.
• •   •
Another college basketball squad
is coming to the fore In search of
Dominion honors. McGill hoopsters
are worrying the opposition in both
the Intercollegiate and Montreal
leagues. A short time ago the Eastern students handed the smart "Nal-
ocs" squad a 30-24 trimming, which
gives them quite   a   boost   as   the
• *  *
The co-eds arc having quite a time
in their Interclass athletic endeavours, and from all appearances are
taking them quite seriously. We had
the good fortune to sit in on a basketball "game" in which the senior
girls out-battled the Freshettes by
an 8-6 score. But the co-eds are
having a lot of fun ln their rather
aimless wanderings on the gym
floor, which after all is the chief
aim of these contests.
• *   *
The women have also started to
train for the Spring track season,
and weekly workouts in the gym are
being well attended. Margaret Wilson, the petite senior, is one of the
big boosters in the girls' cinder organization, and, if you are interested in turning out, can give you a
general idea of what Is going on.
Comments From Here and There
on Inter^Class Sports
BY DAY WASHINGTON
The semi-finals in the girls Interclass basketball league will be played
off this week, with the four top
teams battling for a place In the
final round. Arts '32, '33 and '35
and Education are the four teams in
the top position. Arts '32 and *33
will fight It out on Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock, and the
Education ladles will tackle the
freshettes at four o'clock on Thursday afternoon. The winners of the
two games will meet In the final
round some day next week.
The two games this week should
prove to be real thrillers, and we
strongly advise you to take an hour
off and drop around to the gymnasium to see the girls play ball.
• • •
The men's section of interclass
basketball has entered on the final
week of Its league schedule and next
Saturday's game will complete the
league.
To simplify matters the classes
were divided into two divisions, one
consisting of Arts '33, '34, Sc. '32 and
'33 and Theologs. The other group
comprises Arts '32, '33, Sc. '33, '34
and Aggies. With the completion of
the schedule the top team in each
division wil play off.
• •  •
Science '33 came out on top In a
game against Arts '38 to aid their
league standing materially. Arts '33
humbled Science '31 on Wednesday,
swamping them by a 30-10 score. Tha
engineers had no combination and
a poor basket eye. Science '33 came
along again on Saturday to take
Arts '34 Into camp. This Science '33
team looks like a good bet in their
division. ,
• •  •
This week's schedule la as follows:
Tuesday noon Arts '33 vs. Aggies;
Wednesday noon Sc.  '33 vs. Theologs; Saturday noon Sc. '35 vs. Aggies.
Artimen Defeat
Engineers 2-0 In
Soccer Contest
Arts '34 eliminated Science '34 from
tlie Inter-Class Soccer Competition
yesterday noon by giving the Red-
shirts a 2-0 whitewashing. Owing to
the absence of a ball the game was
delayed for about half an hour, but
when finally one of the Sciencemen
produced the necessary sphere, and
the ref blew his tin whistle, things
started off with a bang. Three minutes had scarcely elapsed when Dick
Smith, playing on the extreme left
for the Artsmen, sent a high shot at
goal from forty yards out which completely fooled the lanky Redshlrt
goalie, and the ball fell into the net.
Play continued at a rapid pace with
spectacular combination and mlsklcka
on both sides. Arts, however, did most
of the pressing in this half. Science,
with the wind in their backs, changed
their tactics in the second half with
the result that they almost tied the
Artsmen on a number of occasions.
Though the game slowed up somewhat in this period, yet both teams
fought bitterly for the ball at all
times. Hughie Smith, not to be outdone by his kid brother's extraordin-
ory effort, convinced the onlookers of
the Artsmen's superiority when he
broke fast through the Redshirts' last
line of defenders, tricked the goalkeeper and put the ball into the
empty goal. The game ended soon
after.
Co-ed. Hockeyists
Tie With ex-Kits
Varsity Women's Grass Hockey
team tied with Ex-Kits in a no score
game at Memorial Park on Saturday. With the quick clearing of the
ball by D. Johnson and P. Campbell,
fullbacks, and the series of rushes
made by the inside forwards, Mary
Macdonald, Isobel McArthur and
Muriel Partridge, the co-eds game
showed marked improvement. The
Varsity team played an attack game
in both halves but the tendency of
the half-backs to leave their checks
and the inability of the forwards to
find the goal resulted ln a no score
game.
ARNOLD HENDERSON
Veteran of the squad that brought
the first Canadian Championship to
the University of B. C, Arnold Henderson is now engaged in developing
a team to defend the title. Despite
the setbacks which the cagers have
received this season, the boys feel
confident that they are capable of
making a good showing against the
Vancouver and District League winners in the Lower Mainland series.
TEN YEARS AGO TODAY
Varsity week, second celebration of
its kind, opened with a bang last
Monday, the first shot being a mass
meeting and student demonstration
of wit and vigor. Since then the
"pep gun" has been firing away in
tug-of-war competitions, basketball,
and oratorical contests. The biggest
shot of all will be Theatre night no
doubt.
For the winners of these interclass contests a silver trophy has
been donated by the Board of Governors.
The Farmers won an inter-faculty
debate with the Scientists, affirming
"that the adoption of a policy of
Free Trade would be beneficial to
Canada."
Both Varsity Senior "B" basketball teams downed Victoria College
the girls scoring 13-7, and the boys
34-32.
The games were keenly contested.
Good combination and heavy checking characterized each.
In the Tug-of-war preliminaries
Arts '24 demonstrated that they had
more pull than '23. Science '24 held
out on Arts '22, while Science '23
prevented the Aggies from bringing
home the bacon.

Tennis Club
To Have Busy
Spring Season
With the bright sunshine and
warmer weather of the past week,
tennis has once more taken its place
among the active sports on the campus. The awakening is much earlier this year than usual.
The concrete courts have been very
busy and all indications point to the
most successful spring season the
Club has had for several years.
The President, Reg. Price, has several announcements of interest to
all tennis players and particularly
club members. Club hours have
been granted to the club by Students' Council, and are aa follows:
Monday 1:05 p.m.; Thursday 1:05
p.m.; Friday 1:05 p.m.
Only club members who may be
required to show their tickets will
be allowed on the courts during these
hours after this week. Members who
have paid their fee of $1.00 may now
get their permanent ticket from the
secretary, Cliff Yolland. Tennis
players who have not yet joined the
club may do so for 50c for the balance of the term, and enjoy the use
of the courts during the club hours.
The executive is busy at present
arranging a number of matches to
take place within the next month.
The first of these is a challenge
match between Arts and Science
which will take place on Saturday,
February 27. Efforts are also being
made to arrange a match between
the club and members of the faculty,
following the above. Correspondence,
with a view to arranging matches
with Victoria College, Washington,
and other outside bodies, has been
entered into.
ELIGIBILITY
Notice, Women
Speaking of eligibility, girls,
have you seen the list of eligible males of the Applied Science Faculty for Feb. 29? Look
in the Women's Common Room,
and leave a note In the Letter
Rack.
POST MORTEMS
With Stu Keate
The firm of Farrington, Hedreen and
Eyre can point with pride at their
Canadian Rugby proteges, the Blue
and Gold Senior City aggregation. On
Saturday a sturdy line and smashing
backfield carried the boys to a 6-0
win over the strong V.A.C. squad.
Joe Dwyer was one of the big factors in the Vac's defeat The 130-
pound freshman forward-passed and
drop-kicked the clubbers until they
were dizzy. His two drop-kicks were
the only scores of the game.
Wilf. McKnlght, ex-golfer, waa on
the receiving end of a lot of Dwyer's
passes. Senior City company went well
with Jack Steele, too, who found that
he wu not so greatly outweighed hi
this league as he wu In "Big Four."
Arts '34 won the annual interclass
swimming gala at Chalmers pool on
Thursday night with a total of 41
points; Arts '33 were only 5 pointa
behind.
George Copeland, a freshman, upset
the dope when he defeated Jimmy
Wilson in the men's 50-yard free
style event Jimmy took sweet revenge when he won the 100-yard
sprint over Ron Wilson of Science,
and Copeland, his Frosh rival. In all,
Jimmy copped four firsts, two seconds,
and a third, to take individual honours. Ken Beckett garnered two firsts.
"I won the breast stroke," says
Norm Gustafson, "but they wouldn't
give it to me because I used the
crawl." Figure that one out!
Arts '34 were eliminated from any
hopes of the interclass basketball
trophy when with four men, Saturday, they dropped the count to
Science '33 by 9-7.
Next Thursday an almost historic
golf fued will be renewed when
Charlie McCaddon meets Arnie Powell
in the first round of the University
Championship. These boys have met
twice in previous years. Both times
McCadden has won on the last green.
It looks as though the championship
might be settled In the first round!
From all reports the Blaine Senior
A" basket encounter was not so hot,
both teams playing listless ball. The
boys from the 49th parallel haven't
the finish of the Ellensburg squad.
Pi Campbell hit his old stride in
this game and Bob Osborne hung up
13 points as they should be hung up.
Ken Wright and Jimmy Bardsley
showed to advantage when they were
on.
The schedule has been drawn up
Final Clearance
of All Skiis
tot inter-fraternity Softball and the
Greeks will commence play within the
next week or two. Phi Kappa Pi are
the present holders of the recently-
redecorated—er, trophy.
Union Theological College studenta
defeated an Anglican Theological 11
7-0 In a soccer game played on the
campus. Horsman (2), Latimer (2),
Anderson (2), and Dodson did the
scoring.
In the Junior Alliance League Varsity soccerites dropped a closely,
played game to Stock Exchange, 1-0.
Grass hockey enthusiasts were busy
Saturday but the best they could do
in three games wu a draw. In the
Mainland league, Varsity lost to Incogs 1-3 and in the Women's League
U.B.C. lost to Britannia 0-3. It waa
ln the nme league that Varaity played
a scoreless draw with ex-Kltauano.
Famous first lines: "In a well-played
game in which the score dees not
fairly Indicate the play, Varaity wu
nosed out by 118-2."

There will be-a meeting of all out-
of-town students In Arts 100 at
