Liquor Board Announces
Startling Innovations In
Government Beer Policy]
Prominent Students Express Gratification At
Unexpected Announcement
"No Drinking on the Campus" Says Collins
Emphatically When Interviewed
A beer license for the university area was the startling announcement made yesterday in a wire from Victoria by the
Fliquor Control Board. After considerable representations from
interested parties authority was given to the 'Cat and Parrot' to
open a tavern on the premises.
This is the first result of the government's new liberalized
liquor policy in an attempt to compete with the United States.
Work has already begun on the fit-<*>

proprietors of the "Cat and Parrot" *NeW JLCIltOr-in-Cnief
expect to open for business very
shortly. There will be free beer on
the first two days for all students
carrying a library card, providing they
are over twenty-one years of age.
Mark Collins declared himself astonished at the new innovation. "On
the whole I consider the idea sound,"
he said. "It will produce a much
needed spirit among the student body.
But I am totally opposed to drinking
on the campus," he added.
"The rneasure is distinctly progressive,' said Milton Owen to the Ubyssey.   "I am very much surprised at
the  action  of the government,  but
„v«Ky happy."   «, 5*   » -
Miss Dallert expressed herself somewhat dubiously. "Although the idea
is basically sound, I do no tbelieve
there should be indiscriminate drinking between the sexes. We must
have moderation at all costs."
A wire of congratulation on the
new measure was sent to the chairman of the Fliquor Commission by
the Bublications Board yesterday,
after a riotous meeting attended by
the whole staff.
Considerable astonishment was expressed on the campus yesterday
when it was learned that two members of the smart younger set had determined to embark upon the troublous seas of matrimony and join together in the nuptial bond. The marriage took place yesterday of Marcus
Antonius Collins, well-known bon-
vlvant and ward politician and Mrs.
Clucas, social butterfly and authority
on measles.
Tho happy couple eloped to Bell-
ingham last night, and were united
in wedlock by the Chief of Police.
The service was obliged to terminate
suddenly when th. bridegroom found
that his nuptial partner was adverse
to all forms of osculation as unhy-
genic and absurd. All attempts to
have the marriage annulled were unsuccessful, as it was discovered that
Mr. Collins had two other wives anyhow.
Th. bridal couple will be at home
to their many friends and relations
in tho Men's Common Room all next
week. Tickets of admission to view
the exhibit are said to be at a considerable premium.
Appointment of Archie Thompon as
Editor-in-Chief of the Publications
Board was made tentatively by Students' Council after recommendation
from the retiring editor. Thompson
has served for three years on the
Board and will be the senior in point
of service, For the last year he has
been News Manager of the Ubyssey,
and previous to that served as an
associate editor for a year.

Abolishment Of
Frat Tables
New Prexy Happy At
A.M.S. President
Fraternity and sorority tables must
go, was the ultimatum delivered by
the Discipline Committee yesterday
in a long report to the Inter-fraternity Council. They were characterized [
as a distinct menace to student life.
'Tha ballots have spoken. Murray
Mather was elected president of the
Alma Mater Society in Tuesday's elections. Immediately after the official announcement a crew of Ubyssey reporters sought out the new president who was found holding a reception for his many friends in one
of the bottom stacks.
The door in the middle of the stacks
had been closed and only those lucky
[souls knowing the password were allowed Into the lower regions. Fortunately the power of the press triumphed, and the Ubyssey is able to
print an exclusive account of the
riotous party that echoed and reechoed through the caralls until a
late hour Thursday morning, when
police at last managed to break down
the barriers and arrest the inmates.
Mr. Mather had very thoughtfully
provided some forty barrels of beer,
untold gallons of Scotch, twenty demijohns of rum, forty buckets of potato champagne, one hundred cases
of assorted vanilla and lemon extracts
and sixty kegs of Listerine.
The new president was attired in
garhmds of roses and had wall-low-

personable damsels on the campus

Monro Club Holds
*   *   •
"The Life of Sir William Osier,"
was the subject of a paper written
by William Gibson, of McGill University, and read by Guy Palmer to
the Monro Pre-Medical Club in Ap.
Sc. 101, Tuesday noon.
Sir William Osier had a profound
influence on medical organization.
He believed that medical men are
here to make the lives of others hap-
pir, and that "he who lives well in
obscurity lives well indeed."
Great though he was, his hopes,
fears and mental capacities were
htose of any other medical man.
He received the early part of his
education in Canada. While in hi3
second year at McGill he changed to
the medical course, and here later
received a prize for his thesis on
Pathology. His postgraduate work
was done in London, Berlin and
He never seriously entered private
practice but spent his life teaching.
He was a professor at McGill, Johns
Hopkins and Oxford. He was very
popular with the students and was
very interested in their work.
Thruoghout his life he kept up a
research on tuberculosis and contributed valuable Information on this
subject. He also wrote a text book
which gave him a great revenue and
enabled him to donate much to charitable clinical work.
His death was due to a chill received in an automobile ride during
the Edinborough railway strike.
"Succes is due to doing work as it
comes day, not looking to the future,"
he said.
one parent remarked, "I am astonished at the total
lack of manners exhibited at these
tables. I have had a much better
meal in many a pig-pen. My daughter
comes home every day with her garments soiled disgracefully with mud
and grime. This never happened before she joined a sorority."
Local clubs described conduct
around the tables as "disgusting" and
'licentious." Milk is known to have
been drunk with abandon, while
sandwiches were almost a common
occurrence. Were it not for fraternities such conduct could not possibly
Members of the Pep Club appeared
before the Discipline Committee
armed with banners, and dressed in
dainty green lingerie, trimmed with
blue lace. "Fraternity tables must

been shocked oh so many times by
the awful conduct we are now forced
to eat in the Women's Common
As a consequence of these and
other representations the Discipline
Committee determined to do away
with the abuses, so henceforth all

eat off the floor.

cited the statutes of the Province of
British Columbia nt great length.
In the aisles there was, a steady
flow of liquid refreshments which
were continually replenished with a
hose. As the booze trickled down
into the lower levels, tbe revellers
lay on their backs and caught the
drops in their ears.
Mr. Ridington expressed his approval with a wan smile. "Never has
the library been so popular among
the student body. This is particularly Important with exams coming on
apace. The new president should be
congratulated for inaugurating such
a progressive policy."
A reporter managed to ask Mr. Mather what his next year's program
would be. The president-elect swayed
with emotion as he sobbed into the
reportorial ear, "Friendsh and fellow
shtiudents," he cried, "What thish
campush needs is more fun and lesh

and frivolity.

Professor Villari has just been

In the Geological Museum at the
University of British Columbia there
is a piece of clay bearing the footprint of a dinosaur, which was dug
out of the coal mine at Nanaimo, a
small town on Vancouver Island. You
may remember this Island if you are
old enough to have been Interested
in politics when the Emperor William
of Germany decided on the claims of
England and our own United States
in a dispute over who was to. own
some islands on the Pacific Coast.
Although the Emperor William, as
you may remember, was an Emperor,
and King George III, who then ruled
England, was going to have a granddaughter who would also be an Emperor if she had been a man, but aa
she was a woman she had to be content with being the Queen-Empress
Victoria, the Emperor William probably gave as fair a decision as President Wilson did in the dispute between Czecho-Slovakia and Siam over
the relative precedence to be enjoyed
by their diplomatic representatives at
the Vatican.
However, William gave Vancouver
Island to the British, in spite of Lord
Ashburton, a direct descendant of
Henry the Eighth, a king who had
six wives, though not all at once, and
who solved the divorce problem by
refering it to the court executioner,
a course which we are not wise
enough to follow in our own United
States. Lord Ashburton wanted to
give Vancouver Island to Peru, to
form a buffer state between our own
United States and Canada, a course
which would have altered the history
of this continent if it had been followed.
The British Immediately established
coal mines at Nanaimo in order to
supply coal to the British Navy which
has a great tradition behind it, including such men as Admirals Nelson,
Drake, and Beatty, who are probably
as great men as Admirals Dewey and
Simms of our own United States Navy.
Drake beat the Spaniards in the West
Indies ,and Dewey beat them in the
Phillipines. It is strange that each
should have done this half way
around the world from his home
town, although Drake's home was in
Plymouth (not the one where the
Pilgrim fathers landed) and Dewey's
was Kansas City or Elmira, N.Y., it is
not certain which.
Scientists tell us that the removal
of this dinosaur's footprint, together
with the remains of the weight of
the dinosaur, altered the balance of

beliefs of two Kings and an Empress

FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1934	
Soon we shall be embarking upon life's
turbulent highroad. We are confronted on
either hand with pitfalls, and the slough of despond beckons with a siren cry. Upon one side
of us stretches our happy academic career
strewn with many fragrant garlands of
friendship. On the other hand the cavernous
maw of the future stretches indeterminately
like a grim spectre.
Where are we? Youth demands an answer and youth will be satisfied. Humanity is
growing restive with all the fervour of an outraged bull crying for her whelps.
Sweet girl graduates, who have now attained the full-blown rose of womanhood, will
soon be tripping with lightsome heart out of
our gates of learning, bent upon conquering
life's problems. Alas! sweet miss, the future
is not as unclouded as we would hope. Your
tender footsteps will be tempted astray. Your
valiant dreams will be crashed from their pedestals. Success will turn to gall and wormwood
in your hand. Life's flowing bowl will turn
sour and curdle.
But all is not lost. Thank god, our children are made of sterner stuff than to falter
under the burden of civilization. The valiant
spirit of our forefathers has not been quenched
by the bitter waters of adversity. Let us clutch
our dreams in one hand, and our mortar boards
in the other, and march onward from victory
unto victory, singing always with a cheery
smile a little message of optimism.
'It isn't raining to rain to me,
It's raining daffodils.
In every dimpled drop I see
Wild flowers in the hills.'
Life is a journey, beginning at the ALPHA
Kappa and ending at the Chi OMEGA. We flit
from heighth to depth, from depth to heighth,
from heighth to depth, from depth to heighth,
oops. Who can tell?
The man who knows the answer is indeed
fortunate. We'll bet he tells it to all the goils.
If not, why not? Come again more slow.
Let us be up and doing with a heart for
any fate. The time has come for a definite stand
on this question. Eventually, why not now?
Are our Councillors a bunch of dodoes? If not,
try Listerine. Still endeavoring, still pursuing,
learn to labor and to wait.
When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound
upon the other shore, when the morning breaks
eternal bright and fair, the stag at eve will
have dunk his fill. That is the trouble with this
University. There are too many stag lines, not
enough contacts with the sweet essence of pure
femininity. Beecham's pills are just the thing.
Whatever may be the consequences, we repeat our statement fearlessly and without rancour. The world must be made safe for democracy, work and wages. What else is a discipline committee for?
We must plant our feet firmly on the status
quo and play cricket .As Mr. Gladstone told
the immortal bard in 1884, or verse vica, "Why

Stars Next Week
In Three Plays
It is interesting to note that the
three star-producers of the American
stage who are recognised leaders In
the legitimate theatre successfully
presenting notable plays of high standard, have been out of New York this
season, bringing their companies across
the continent with such success that
goes to prove the public is eager for
plays of quality presented by first
class actors. Of these valiant actor-
managers, Katherine Cornell, Eva Le
Gallienne, and Walter Hampden, the
last-named eminent only, this season,
will appear in Vancouver and the
three plays to be presented on March
20 and 21, two evenings and matinee,
offer a brilliant succession of productions such as have not been witnessed
here for a long time.
Walter Hampden is at the zenith of
his powers, his productions are always
noted for the rich and artistic beauty
of their settings and costuming, and
the   plays   he   Is   presenting   afford
magnificent scope for his famous characterizations of character, the plays
presenting vivid contrasts in form,
theme and character analysis.
"Richelieu," by Bulwer Lytton, in
Mr. Hamden's' masterly hands, Is
modernized, this most thrilling drama
in all stage history, sufficiently to
more closely knit the action and make
the movement swifter, and the language simplified. The second play,
Shakespeare's great tragedy, "Macbeth," needs no comment. In contrast
again to both these plays in the first
of which the game of intrigue played
by the powerful Cardlna saves the
state and the throne for Louis XIII.
against the plots of <his enemies, in
the second greed and ambition bring
despair and destruction, both fraught
with human conflict, "The Servant in
the House" is a profoundly moving
drama of a household at war with itself restored to peace by Manson who
brings all to their senses with his
practical message of human brotherhood. In spirit this play is resembled

speaker was introduced by Dean Bollert, who outlined briefly the varied
and extensive career of the Juvenile
Court, Judge.
Mrs. McGill gave a summarized discussion of the laws of our province
which relate in particular to women
and children. She traced the rather
arbitrary laws which have recently
beer, amended, to their adoption, in
lj58, from the British laws which were
in force at that time.
The speaker afterwards discussed
the development of Women's suffrage
in the province, the present laws, and
the need for further reform.

Miss Bollert was hostess to the girls
at tea.

these amateur thcspians. Instead of
an evening of entertainment and
amusement we came away from the

The scenery was very, very pretty,
but unfortunately the actors often
got in front of it and obscured the
view. Furthermore we could not
hear a word that was spoken because
of the snores in the audience. We

Fraternity House Raided
In Late Midnight Foray
By Police Authorities
Riot Squad Overcome By Scenes in Western
Parkway   Home
Residents of the university district
were suddenly awakened from their
slumber at an early hour this morning by the sound of a full brigade of
police cars from Vancouver. Amid
the wail of sirens and the blowing of
whistles one of the best-known resorts on the campus was raided.
With lightning rapidity the doors
of the Fiji house were broken down
by the authorities. Despite the wailing protests of tha inmates access was
made to the subterranean cellars,
where even the hardened hearts of
some of Vancouver's roughest and
toughest policemen were affected by
the sights that confronted their eyes.
It was found that ten scantilly clad
chorus girls from the Royal Theatre
were found drinking milk and reading Dickens. Upon questioning they
said that the Fljis had brought them
to the house, saying it was a night
school, and naturally the girls had
come as they were anxious to be educated.
Hash  Suspected!
Male inmates of the house denied
all knowledge of the ladies. "Their
presence in our house is a complete
mystery." declared Dick Elson, well
known habitue of the premises. "It
is all a foul machination on the part
of the Phi Delts.    The ladies were

is another well known abode of vice."
Bill Sargent was non-committal
when questioned by the morality
squad. "I won't say there were ladies in our house, and I won't say
there weren't. I have placed my defence in the hands of my attorney,
Mr. Jack Sargent."
The innocent expression on the face
of Howard Jones convinced police tha'
he was free of any suspicion. '1 always go to bed at 7:30," he said, "and
anyway I sleep in the attic, as the
continual row in the basement keeps
me awake every night."
When the case came up in court
this morning, the magistrate complimented the police on their fine work
in suppressing vice, but after looking
at the ladies dismissed the case. "The
Fijis are obviously Innocent," he declared, "unless standards of female
pulchritude have changed since I was
a boy." The aged jurist suppressed
a tear and retired amid the rendering
of a chorus by the whole fraternity,

VV Advises Dorothy Brix -A-
Miss Brix
Dear Miss Brix: I am so utterly miserable after
being so divinely happy and I need your help. I
am married to a man who makes fifty thousand
dollars a year and we have two adorable little
kiddles. Their buck teeth arc almost in line again
and the doctor says their eyes will be quite straight
in a few more years. One of them is tongue-tied
but It doesn't matter because the other one is deaf.
They're Just too sweet, Miss Brix.
But I am so unhappy. My husband is thirty
years older than I am, but we loved each other
passionately. When he was wheeled home from his
afternoon walk each day I v/ould scamper down
the path to kiss him and we were very, very happy. But somehow our kisses
changed.   I had to do something about it.
Heaven sent an answer to my prayer a few months ago.   The most perfectly divine ice-man came to our house every day.   He has violet eyes and J
his shirt, carelessly open, discloses a wealth of hirsute adornment.   And he
kisses—oh. my dear, forgive my tears!   I only did it to keep my kissing in
good shape
But one day my husband saw us in an embrace and he has bought me
a Frigldaire (Adv't).

Arduous Efforts Of
Players Rewarded
By Excellent Show
Outstanding   Characterization   of   Caesar
Played By Bill Sargent
Large Cast and Stage Crew Handle Many
Details of Drama
Success has crowned the arduous efforts of the Players'
Club with the elaborate presentation of George Bernard Shaw's
"Caesar and Cleopatra." Performed first on Wednesday night,
the second performance last night drew a crowded house of
students, who followed with enthusiasm this interpretation of
Caesar's history in Egypt.
The exceptionally heavy demands of this drama were
capably handled by. a large cast and stage crew, and almost
every detail revealed careful preparation and thought. Despite
all said to the contrary, however, it stage designing. But the pieces—admirably built, admirably arranged—
particularly the flooring did mem to
me somewhat limited in lmmaginatlve
design; like a hesitant, perfunctory
attempt at a revolutionary Idea.
Other members of the large cast Included: Tom Lea, Norman McDalr-
mid, Norah Gibson (FtatateettO,
Frank Miller, George Johnston, Lloyd
Hobden, Thomas Burch, Herbert Barclay, Victor Patilll, Harold Lando,
Gordon Collins, Ivan Knight, C.
Fletcher, Jack Conway, Estelle Matheson, Mary McGeer, Margaret Stewart, Russell Twining, Dan Qulgley,
Stuart Keate, and others. Miss Dor-
othey Somerset was director. The
play will be repeated tonight and
Saturday night.
Dear Sunk In a Ditch: Ah, my dear, what a beautiful pseudonym! It recalls to me fond memories of what I called a policeman who arrested me for
disturbing the peace, and the six months of solitude I spent up the river
Your problem is indeed serious but I am sure with your versatility at
alibis you will come through with flying colors. After all, my dear, you
have the true riches, two adorable kiddies, a Frigldaire (advt.) and fifty
thousand dollars a year.   Yes, my dear, the true riches.
But about your problem. If you decide to elope with the iceman, mall
me your husband's name and address and I'll see what headway I can make
explaining and conciliating him. And perhaps you had better take those
two adorable kiddies with you. No one.can fill the place of a mother In a
child's dear little heart. Yes, I certainly would take those two adorable
kiddies with you.
If ,on the other hand, you should stay with your husband and let the
ice-man go by the boards, do mail me his name and address, and I shall attempt to alleviate the pangs of shattered love. I should love to explain it
all to a shaggy-chested, violet-eyed man; they are always so sensitive. Is
he tall, too?
Believe me, dear Sunk in a Ditch, your problem is right next my heart,
and I shall await your answer with anxiety. The best advice I can give is,
keep cool with the ice-men or hot with the husband. But don't part with
those two adorable little kiddies. Nothing can replace the patter of baby feet.
They both have two legs, haven't they?
Your sincere adviser,
is the two leads that "make" the play
and fortunately William Sargent and
Masala Cosgrave, who assume these
roles, are two of the finest artists on
the campus.
Sargent As Caesar
William Sargent thoroughly earned
the laurels that covered the imperial
baldness. His bearing had the true
dignity and humanity of a great man.
He created a living character of Julius Caesar, and the rich though somewhat youthful quality of his voice,
the easy grace and restrained power
of his acting, made his the outstanding contribution of the evening.
Masala Cosgrave invested Cleopatra
with charm, but was notable more
in her moments of dramatic intensity
as the Queen enthroned, discontented,
Minor Parts
The characters throughout were
excellently cast. Rufio (Gerald Prevost), the "rough diamond" general,
was u virile, outspoken, brusque soldier; Bretannus (David Fulton), the
barbarian, was the epitome of British
respectability, with his high moral
tone and sorry-looking moustache;
and Apollodorus (Gordon Hilker),
esthetic patrician, was suave but
somewhat underplayed his part.
The unavoidable drawback of youth
sometimes weakened tire play—fresh,
lusty voices and carefree gestures
come strange from supposedly mature men. The king's tutor and a
few others succeeded in hiding this
The direction exploited the three-
level stage to its full advantage, and
the grouping was occasionally exquisite (as in Cleopatra's boudoir) and
impressive (as at Caesar's leave-taking). Because the play was exceedingly long it was apt at times to drag,
Shaw on occasion needs rapid-fire
No confusion resulting from such
a mixture as a pre-war play giving a
modern interpretation to ancient
events, with ultra-modern settings-
early Shaw in modern dress—seemed
to exist. A certain timelessness nf
event was conveyed, and this was no
small achievement, doubtless aided
by settings suggestive rather than

Lord Kelvin's life and contributions
to science was the subject chosen by
four members of the Physics Club at
their last open meeting in Sc, 200 Wednesday afternoon.
The first speaker, Mr. Ivan Niven.
gave a biography of Lord Kelvin's
life, naming his most notable avhieve-
ment;; in the field of science.
"Lord Kelvin was for twenty years
the foremost physicist in the world. In
1892, when he was president of the
Royal Society, he was raised to the
peerage, and at his death in 1907 he
was! buried in Westminster Abbey
next, to Newton,"
Mr. Robt. Christie, the next speaker, took Lord Kelvin's work in Thyro-
dynamics as his topic. Mr. Christie
spoke of various theories in regard to
the sun which Lord Kelvin afterwards
disregarded in favour of the dynamic
theory of heat. Lord Kelvin's greatness in various branches of science
was pointed out.
Mr. Henry Clayton, the third lecturer, dwelt on Lord Kelvin's work
in the telegraphy, ancl the important
part he played in the successful laying
cf thc submarine cable between England and America.
Tlie last speaker, Mr. George Mossop, gave an account of Lord Kelvin's
contribution to navigation. His most
notable achievement in this branch of
science was his great improvement in
tho mariner's compass. He also invented a sounding machine to find the
depth of the ocean.
Mr. Mossop concluded his lecture
with an experiment to show Lord Kelvin's theory of the rotation of atoms.
