Palomar, Friday Night
No. 18
The students of this university are
to be congratulated on their manners I
The overcrowded cafeteria at noon
hours is a perfect example of manners. It's a bit noisy, of oourae, but
then primitive man waa a noisy
beastle, anyway.
What la moat impressive to the
nowoomer la the friendly tete-a-tete
staged here and there in the aisles
between and beside tables during the
rush hours. One almost feels apologetic when one is foroed to nudge
one's way along rather forcefully towards the counter.
We gave up football several years
ago because of torn ligaments In the
ankle. We have several times since
felt It would be better to be on the
football field rather than leave our
person to the tender morales of socially Inclined university students.

Another thing. . . . The wonderful
campus with whloh the University of
B. O. Is blessed laa god-send. Unfortunately, like many god-given things,
it has been littered with humanity,
and humanity's rubbish.
University officials have asked at
one time and another what students
do at home. Our answer Is that we
don't know, and that, from the appearance of refuse thrown hither and
yon in and around oampus buildings,
we wouldn't like to guess. Visions of
cigarette stubs in the parlor carpet,
and lunch bags on the floor j»f tbe
dining room and the hallways is too
muoh to imagine.
All thla bolls down to the fact that
Mr. Lee la forced to waste valuable
university money keeping one man
employed several hours a day clearing away student garbage when he
could be better occupied elsewhere
. . . which ls a sort of vicious circle
which the said students could easily
eliminate If they were to remember
that Hitler has not yet destroyed

Washington Painter

Waahlngton, Nov. 1.—Loat in the
She was laat aeen on the fourth
floor of Education hall, Waahlngton
University, completely naked, Thuraday night.
Friday, she was gone.
Nobody knows where she Is. . . .
Particularly one Irwin Caplan,
Washington artist.
Caplan painted her. He Is the artist who drawa monsters. She was
no monater.
"She waa half-way between a
blond and a brunette," aald Caplan,
"I wouldn't blame anyone for walking'off with her.    She waa lovely."
The lady In queation waa to have
been exhibited in the Henry gallery.
She was Caplan'a maaterpleoe.
If someone with an eye for morality over art thought there should be
clothes over art they'll have a tough
time with Caplan'a nude. She was
"fixed." That means she was shellacked.
The artist hopes that someone . . .
whoever made ofT with her . . . will
bring her around soon and slip her
under the door.
It took Caplan three weeks to
paint her. He can't be blamed for
saying it's a raw dpal if he doesn't
get the nude back, and that's the
naked   truth.

Taste in Books Ebbs
and Falls With
Changing Times
"The novel 'Gone With the Wind'
was the freak of all ages In books,"
said Professor EUis H. Morrow, M.B.
A„ recently appointed Head of the
Department of Commerce, speaking
before members of the Vancouver
Institute in Arts 100 last Saturday
evening on "A Publisher Looks At
hla Customer."
He attributed Its overwhelming
popularity to the fact that lt caught
the reading public on the rebound
from their taste for the starkly realistic type of novel.
"The latter," he said, "had a strong
innings for many years, but by the
time 'Qone With the Wind' came
along, the public was ready to swing
back to the more romantic type of
PubUc opinion on books, stated
Professor Morrow, ls an absolutely
unpredictable thing. It has periodical
swings ln trends. As an example ot
this he cited the works of hTomas
Hardy; sales for which were practically nil fifteen years ago, but which
experienced a strong revival ten
years ago, only to suffer another relapse of late. Reason for this, said
the speaker, is the public's periodical
realization that "for salaclousneas in
literature, the moderns have nothing
on Hardy."
Other examples listed by Professor
Morrow aa indicative of the swing In
public tastes were Thackeray, Dickens, Scott, Crawford and Rider Haggard. These, he said, are fast losing
their popularity. Publishers are now
allowing' the. works of Thackeray to
go out of print. Dickens, a doubtful
tenant In schools, has been revived

Student Surprises Durkin
Buys Totem Before Sale
History was made In \h* Students'
Council office last Saturday when a
member of the student body entered
the offloe of his own free will and
made a down payment on a Totem.
No slinking salesman dogged the
footstepa of thia intrepid aoul. Lewla
Herberts, on hia own Initiative, had
made the momentoua deoialon to buy
a Unlveralty annual.
Precisely  at   12.17  he   opened    the
door  of the  Council office,  and  ln a
manly voice enquired:  "Is this where
you   order   Totems?"
A hushed silenoe fell in the room.
Then Ozzie Durkin, the husky Totem editor, recovered himself and
made a wild dash for his first customer. In a voice trembling Iwith
suppressed emotion he begged Herberts to wait just one moment until
he could find the order book. A short
search served to find this elusive vol
ume, and then on the virgin whiteness of the flrst page Ossie Inscribed
the words "L. Herberts—One Totem."
Then a horrible Idea came to him
—would this customer really make a
down payment, or waa this order
merely a vicious  hoax?
Squaring his shoulders, with the
air of a man who knew what he
wanted and was determined to get
it, Ozzie demanded "One dollar—
At this moment another miracle
occurred. The unique Lewis Herberts opened his wallet and drew out
a brand new dollar bill! With shaking fingers Ozzie grabbed the money,
made out a receipt, and gave it to
his customer. Then with wondering
eyes he watched this magnificent
member of the student body stride
from the offlce.
Prompted by the burning knowledge that for yeara they had been
subjected to the libelous yells and
songs of taunting Sciencemen, anonymous Artsmen last week plaoed
the following effort on the Arts
Notice Board,
We are the men of Culture
Of Intellect supreme.
From Men like us the coaoh haa
The backbone of the team.
To hell with all the Sclenoe fools
Their record's smeared with sin,
While they demolish 40 beera
We'll quaff off 80 gin.
The ditty was headed "Artsmen,
learn this and beat the Sciencemen."
Senior students should get photographed Immediately If they wish to
have their pictures preserved for
posterity In the 1040 yearbook. Photographs are now being taken at
Artona's downtown studios on Oranvllle Street and appointments oan be
made by phoning Seymour 8787.
The Nursing Faculty made the noblest response last week when 70 per
cent of their number were snapped ;
02 per cent of Sclencemen, urged on
by reports that Artsmen were leading the poll, took the fatal plunge.
The percentage of Artsmen snapped
now stands at 40, while the Aggies,
who are busy milking cows, foot the
list with a bare 82 per oent.
StUl in the dark are 188 students.
They are urged to see the light as
soon as possible.

their vouchers to the A.M.S.

In tracing the growth, accomplishments and abandonment of the Campaign oommittee, Pearson pointed
out that the students are now facing
greater and more serious problems
than any faeed before.
"It is from within the University
that the leaders during the war aad
the reconstruction period following
wlU oome," he continued. "The University of B.O. must provide adequate
aoademio, professional, vocational and
agricultural instruction to every
young person In the provlnoe who
desires the training.
"This aim has been the polloy of
the campaigns of the past and it
should now be the polloy of every
member of the Alma Mater Sooiety.
"Let us look with honor upon those
..tudents who were suooessful In moving the University from the old Pair-
view Shacks to this magnificent site
at Point Orey and vow that we will
do our part towards building up the
University to serve the best interests
cf the people and the Province of
British Columbia," he concluded.
Subsequent speakers Included Miss
Biddy McNeill, W.U.S. prealdent, who
traced the contributions made by the
women towards the development of
the University, and Darrell Braid-
wood, L.S.B. president, who described
the building of the Cairn from the
stones brought by the Campaigners
of 1022.
English at Toronto
Slang Is Part
Of Education
Says Student
A Bag; and a Frail
Make a Rum Slack
So Joe Ganders
(From the Toronto "Varsity")
TORONTO, Nov. 2.—Campus colloquialisms, or In other words,
slang, are regarded as part of a college eduoatlon, says Janice Walsh,
writing in "The Varsity," University
of Toronto student paper.
These colloquialisms vary directly
as the fickle publio. For Instance,
the expression, mugging, so popular
a few years ago, haa been substantiated at intervals by necking, sparking and pitching woo.
Women on the Toronto oampus
have some rare expressions to describe the men they encounter. Drips
heads the list of these, followed by
drlssle-puss, droopy-drawers, dimwit, pickle-puss and screw-ball.
Two comparatively new expressions are worthy of note. These are
whlzzle-breaohes, and Oreat Caesar's
suspenders. They register alarm,
but no-one seems able to connect
them with any meaning.
Our friends at Wycliffe say they are
going gonking if they mean taking
a girl by the lake to park. A waif
ia a girl who has been stood up. A
Joe  is  a swell  fellow.
At a dance you may meet a bag—a
girl with a sense of humor—whom
you ask to lend her frame for the
next struggle; but she may turn out
to be a frail—an insipid girl—and altogether you have a rum slack—a
punk evening. Then you give her
the go-by and take a gander around
to find an O.K. Judy. Two

One of the major sports of the Campus is facing a Blackout
unless sufficient support by the Student body is found to rally to
the oauge. The Varsity loe Hookey team is in the process of being
frosen out of Senior Amateur League competition, because the
claim is made that Varsity teama of the past have been inferior
to the other teams in the League, and have reoeived so little support from University students that they are not a paying member
of the set-up. Chief claim-staker is the burly George Irvine, local
"angel" of amateur ice-hockey, who would have ice-hockey made
Into a money-making proposition, although strictly on an amateur
basis, you understand.
Facing the ubiquitous Sachem of soda water is the evidence
complied by Varsity's senior manager Jaek Stevenson. More recruits than ever have flocked to the oall, and all things point to
a bumper season with the Collegians, who placed favorably in the
league last season. Interest on the Campus is high, and for the
flrst time in many years students have been hit with the "hockey
spirit." Opposing the charges of poor support in the part of the
student body is the attendance at one league game when close to
two thousand Varsity supporters attended. Now with the growing
enthusiasm on the part of players and spectators alike, plus the
fact that University teams always attract a following, seems to
warrant the Amateur Leagues renewal of the Varsity franchise.
The charge that the U.B.C. club is unreliable in completing the
schedule is quite an exaggeration when we consider last year's
Blue and Gold squad that did not default a single league game.
If, however, George Irvine wins his battle against the collegians, it is more than likely that Ice Hockey, a major sport, will
die an unnatural death—that of a major sport being frozen out.
Ugh. Ugh. Got  'urn Totem, etc.
The week of November 6 to November 11 has been set aside
as Totem week, and all the students at this University are xpected
to do their duty, in brief, to buy (that is, reserve with a down
payment) a Totem.
The idea of having a Fall term selling campaign originated
on this Campus last year, and is practically the same as that of
many American and Eastern Canadian Universities. The student
body is canvassed spectacularly, and is requested to pay $1.00
down on the three dollar annual. In the Spring when the book
appears on the Campus, the student pays the remaining two dollars, and receives his book.
The advantages nre obvious. The student will find it simple
to get one dollar, and in the Spring much easier to get two dollars
rather than three. It is no more than the instalment plan.
The staff of the Totem need the information supplied by the
selling campaign as to how many Totems will be required. The
purpose of discovering this data is to avoid printing too many
The Sales Week this year should be very successful. The
Totem editor, Osborne Durkin, his Business Manager, Bert Hoskins,
and the Totem staff, have been working most energetically to
make the Totem week a success.
Ernest Alexander, apparently a gifted Arts student, has supplied the Totem with a selling slogan: "Gottum Totem." He is
to be congratulated!
The co-operation of the students is, of course, indispensable.
At present the outlook for a successful campaign is bright. It
must  remain  bright.
A burning question in the eyes of the manager of the Canadian
football team is the student attendance at football games—even
the games at the University stadium.
But there is the opinion that one should feel encouraged by
the mere fact that one hundred and sixty-eight students out of
the twenty-five hundred on the campus came to the game last Saturday.
The college spirit during the game was only too obvious.
Cries of joy bellowed from the mouths of over a dozen students,
and one member of the Mamooks led nt least four yells during the
afternoon's excitement, thrilling the mob of 'downtown' spectators.
The student body of this University tolerates, apparently, no
criticism, no berating. All that is required is a little psychological
soothing. Just like young children, the students must lie directed
into the paths of righteousness and, perhaps, activity, by means of
the power of suggestion, or of some other subtle and deceptive
methods known only to experts in the real mof psychology.
Tho point which appears to be quite clear is thnt the students
do not desire to be present nt. football games. If this feeling is
true to life, then the students must not be forced to attend.
No.    Let the one hundred  and sixty-eight loyal  and  stalwart '
students continue to support the University teams by themselves. '
They will hnve glory of setting the example for their two thousand
colleagues, who will, of course, follow closely in their footsteps.      ,
Nemo notes that the Political Discussions Club is again arising from
the doldrums that have enrlohed it
slnoe the beginning of the term.
Nemo remembers the P.D.C. of
last year. Under the efforts of Don
MoOlU, Darrell Braldwood. Morris
Belkin, Paul Volpe, Ernest Bishop,
Harold Rome, Bill Backman and
Bernard Rood thla olub developed
from the embryonic stage of 1088
when It was founded, to one of the
most controversial If not Interesting
minor olubs on ths oampus. The
P.D.C. waa their baby and they
nourished tt.
But this year the P.D.C. has been
starved! the men of last year remember it as something that waa.
This olub under Frank Wiggs,
eleoted Speaker last spring, has
swiftly declined Into the most inefficient, the most disorganised unit
on the oampus.
After a few haphaaard meetings
a reorganisation meeting was called
for Friday, Ootober 18.
The turnout Inoluded Bob Bonner
the seoretary and a Ubyssey reporter.
Wiggs, who should have been present, was elsewhere. (Perhaps he
had oonaulted the Oraole and found
that Friday, the 18th, was a poor day
to hold a meeting).
The decline of tho PJD.C. may be
duo to Wiggs' vereatUlty.
Here Is his reoord: Inatruotor in
the CO.T.C.; Speaker of the P.D.C.;
vloe-prealdent In the Parliamentary
Forum; vlos-prestdent of the Law
With so many irons in the Are no
wonder he haa smothsred the flame
that now smoulders In the P.D.C. It
is fortunate for the other eluba that
he Is not president of them for there
is no doubt that they, aa well, would
die prematurely from asphlxiation.
Nemo suggests that Wiggs resign
from a few of these olubs, especially
from the P.D.C. and let some other
student, who can devote the neoeaaary time and who haa tho undivided intereat, rekindle the Area lit by
MoOill, Belkin, Brown, Bishop, Borne
and Sharp . . . the original founders
of the olub.
The P.D.C. is but the first of a
series of olubs to come under my
criticism. All organisations sponsored by the A.M.S. will be panned
or praised aooording to their merits,
aa I see them.
In the near future Nemo will print
in this column the executives of all
olubs whloh have interlocking directorates. He will also print the
names of all students holding more
than their quota of offices, and the
offices  they  hold.

Tuesday, November 7, 1939
When your profeaaor haa finished
hts lecture—"We'll continue from
that point next day"—folded up his
notes, and lad the way from the
olassroom, what happens to him?
Where does he go? Who does he
talk to? What does he think about?
Or, let's ask another queation. Are
we at university only to take notes
and sip coffee? When the professor
disappears into those Intellectual
realms forbidden to the mere atudent, does the latter fulfil his obligations to himself, his parents, and the
Institution by making a bee-line for
the Caf stairs?
The answer to the flrst question
is: No, I don't know where the prof,
goes. Nslthsr does anybody sise. And
further, I don't know what he talks
about, or what he thinks of. Answering the second: If Caf ooffee Is all
we oame out here for, we might Just
as well have saved ourselves and
our parents the time and the money.
Just one more question before we
get to the point. Do all*of us know
exactly what Is taught on this oampus? Of oourse we don't. But, strangely enough, there are a few of us
—perhaps many—who would really
like to know what goes on behind
other olassroom doors, what oomes
out of other professors' minds. Open
House, ysar before laat, was successful enough to answer that one.
And so—the point. We take a personal Interest in our professors; at
leaat most of us do. We think enough
of them to ask for their patronage
at our biggest danoes and social
functions. We do that because we
want to meet them sooially, beoause
we want to form a bond of greater
sympathy and understanding between the faoulty and the student
body. .
We feel that the greatest influence
in our lives out here Is the professor. We spend four years here to
profit by that asaoolatlon—alight aa
it la. For It la alight. It la confined
to abort lecturea two or three tlmea
a week; lt Is limited by the minute
hand of an eleotrlo olook.
I claim that we do not havs a
reasonable chance to know our professors, or to give them a chanoe to
better know ua. It would be to the
benefit of both faotions if eaoh oould
have a better understanding of the
motives of the other. The students
do their best—but that's a lamentable little. Now It's up to the professors.
So, here It Is, Faoulty. I am In
favor of an annual Faoulty Reception for Undergraduates — whioh
might be confined to the upper two
years, If necessary. It might take
the form of a tea in the gym or In
the Union Building, and It would be
one of those stuffy affairs at which

Hart House Quartette
Has Varied Experiences
World wide experlenoea of the*
famed Hart Houae Quartette, paaa
ayatem feature to be preaented to
the atudenta by the Department of
Unlveralty Extenaion on November
18, Inulude an enoounter with card
aharka, mental torture arlaing
through an amateur'a aaxaphone
playing, and refusal to aot aa a
danoe band, it was revealed Saturday.
In order to protect their instruments the Quartette alwaya uaed to
look after them personally. But one
day they arrived In Philadelphia
and, unknown to Borla Hambourg,
oelliat, the porter handed the oello
to a redcap who flung It onto the
platform with the reat of the luggage.
Said the redcap when the cello
waa damaged, "I thought lt waa a
aet of golf cluba."
Remembering the Incident, Hambourg made a wild daah during the
intermlaaion of a private concert at
the home of Lady Aator when one
of her gueata picked up hia oello.
"That la quite all right, old man,"
aald the aatonlahed Peer aa Boris
trlsd to take the instrument out of
his hands, "I have two Stradlvaril
myself and hence know how to handle them."
Adolphe Koldofsky, the seoond
violinist who speaks Frenoh like a
native Parisian, waa almost forced
into a flght on board a trana-atlantio
liner becauae he told a Frenchman
he waa English even though he
apoke Frenoh fluently.
Milton   Blaokatone,   the   viola,   haa
twice    been    fortunate    In    finding
pearla 'while eating oyatera;  onoe in
Halifax and onoe in Chicago.
For two houra the delicately tuned
ears of the Quartette were tortured
by the weird and Inharmonious playing of a lad who was a "genius on
the sassophone." They had boarded
a train and were reoognlaed by the
porter whoae son was the genius.
Beaming over with paternal pride
the porter wired the son to board
the train when it arrived in town
and play for the Quartette.
Card sharpers were not keen
enough for James Lsvey, the Arst
violin, who Is considered one of the
best bridge players on the continent
of Europe. On a trip from England
to Sweden he turned the tables on
a pair of card sharks who Invited
him to play. He won their money.
Three of Blaokstone's violins were
onoe an old hand-made trunk. On
one of his Atlantio orosslngs he met
a young Austrian with the trunk the
wood of whloh was In Blaokstone's
opinion over 300 years old and Tyrolean maple. The Austrian aooepted
the offer of a new trunk and Blaokatone had three magnlAcent violins
made by manufacturers in London,
Toronto and New York.
Their experience in the musical
world ls that a concert orchestra
cannot play' danoe muslo. But when
they played In a small Canadian
town tbey were almost unable to
convince the chairman of the meeting that they would be "pretty
awful" aa a danoe band.
After their performance the chairman came up and said, "Oreat con-
oert, now we will go on with the
"Thanks," said the Quartette, "but
we are tired and do not feel like
staying for the danoe,"
Spluttered the chairman, "Bbbut
aren't you going to play for us?"

Dank stinking fumes rose allmtly
from the steaming oover to the
spiral sewer at the Point, and a few
gasping mortals from here and there
struggled to free themselves from
the elutohes of the grotesque sentries.
Had not the very principles of

theae reeking fools Ignored the

The sewer suddenly ohanged its
beery gurgllnga to a slithering seeping sound, and slowly rose the massive oover. A gleaming wing-Jing
swished past, pierolng the drooping
ears of the sentries, and pinning
them   to the wireless mast.

His long slsek blaok limousine
shrieked paat including Chang on

the Intrepid Oscar Scrlbblewell, supreme scribe with the Dirty Rag.

alank off to aee hla Dirty Nine.
"Oh yea," he giggled to hlmaelf,
"I have acorea to aettle there. I'll
torture them In my underground

them all to ruin their good names."
The Dirty Nine were busy, so

aside, revealing the yellow fangs of
grinning Chang, who sprang quiokly
to the neok of bibulous Buddy embracing her hotly with his clawing

climbed off Jittering Buddy, and
peered straight into the face of
amooth,  confident  Pawn  Jeerson.
"And what ia this I hear of deficits?" . . . Jeeraon wept at thia,
and aighed an apology to the murdering Chang, "It really can't be

The room was Ailed with pandemonium, a Aaah of light burst through
the gloom, and Oscar Scrlbblewell,
with his smoking camera crashed

Gridmen Take Seventh Straight Win

Students Shaded
39-37 by Angelus in
Close Contest at VAC
Joe and Josephine College, at the
V.A.C. In all the traditional trapping
that make up oollege spirit, failed
in the task of driving a University
of B.C. baaketball quintette on to
viotory although the Thunderbirda
rallied desperately In the dying
moments of their game against
Angelus, only to be nosed out by
two points, 80-87.
Frankly green and inexperlenoed
the College Ave went "way behind
the Hotelmen In the flrst quarter.
Coley Hall's men grabbed a fast 14-5
lead whioh left the Studenta gasping for breath.
Coaoh Van Vllet immediately injected "Joe" Pringle into the con
test, and, moving into their son-
defense the Thunderbirds began to
climb steadily, after the elusive
They   pulled   up   to  within   three
points at the end of the first period
at whloh point tho soore read 14-11
for the Hotelmen.
The Students dropped behind again
in the seoond quarter with redheaded Arnie Bumstead leading the
Angelus attaok. Bumstead who
soored fourteen points, spearheaded
the Angel rally that put them In the
lead at the half-time whistle 33-16.
A flurry of Varsity baskets early
in the third period brought the Students closer to that Angelus lead,
and Ave straight scores without a
reply knotted the oount at 34-34.
Angelus, however, showing more
consistent form and breaking quickly, left the students In the 'wake of
a scoring spree which 'widened the
gap between them to 81-38.
At this point the old Varsity "try"
started to work on the Collegiate
oage orew, and, sparked by Joe
Pringle, they began to sift through
the Angelus defense for Important
scores. This same Pringle, star of
former Varsity squads, netted a
pretty one-handed shot and a foul
shot to climb to within two points
of the Hotelmen, 83-84.
Baok came Bumstead for the
Angels -with a long awiah from a
long diatance, and aeoonda later
Bobbie Marsh dashed into the clear
for another Angelus score.
The Collegians who were shooting
the eyes out of their foul ahota,
came cloaer wtth free toaaea by Livingstone and Straight, and a climaxing baaket by Livingstone that put
the Studenta two points back. Try
as they could the Blue and Oold
were unable to And the deficit and
balance the booka. Just as it looked
as though they were going to tie
the count again, the Anal whistle
blew leaving them with their second
straight defeat.
9*0 In Spotty Show
The Lion went back to his hills last Saturday, Beventh straight
victim of the Varaity Thunderbirds (1939 edition) gridiron squad.
A championship team last year, the North Shore Leos were sadly
trounced for the second time by a Collegiate erew who were definitely not playing good football. The score was 9-0.
The encounter was nothing like the season's opener in which
Varsity barely nosed but the Leos 10-8 in a really thrilling last
minute stand. It was a Varsity game all the way Saturday with
the Lions never threatening the leadership of the Big Four Circuit

To Mansfield Beach
The Championship flight of the annual golf tournament narrowed down
to the seml-flnals, aa the boya cavorted around the grassy stretches of
the University Links all last week.
A flashy brand of dlvotlng was displayed throughout the whole competition, practically aU scores being in
the seventies. The big upset ln the
week's encounters was the defeat of
last year's champion, BUI Charlton,
by Mansfield Beach. Beach waa held
ell the way to the eighteenth green,
where he finally came out on top by
a one up score.
The ex-Austrian ehamp, Hans
Swinton, put down Bob Plommer of
Shaughnessy, 8-4. In a tight contest, Ken McBride of Nelson Anally
edged out Ormle Hall with a 3-1
In the other match, Bob Waldie
Just eked out a victory over Oordle
Livingston, when he grabbed the decision with another one-up win. '
The draw for the semi-finals will
see Mansfield Beach pitted against
Hans Swinton, and Ken McBride
against Bob Waldie. Both these
matches should be close, as all four
boys have turned In low seventies,
which is no mean score for the University layout.
As a matter of fact, the olass of
dlvoters this year ls far above the
average of other years, plus which
there ts a wealth of talent being exhibited in the ranks of the flrst flight.
The seml-flnals of this flight, Incidentally, should be ready for play
by November 11.

the StudenU nevertheless outplayed
North Shore all the way.
Biggest surprise of the game was
the half-baok running of Ernie Teagle, re-conditioned English rugger
man. Teagle, who has been understudying Jim Harmer ln the blocking
half position all season, got a chance
to run some plays In Andy Lang's
right half spot and showed to good
advantage on offensive plays.
Also surprised were some of tho
Varsity substitutes who actually got
Into tho game on Saturday. Joplln
oame off long enough to allow Gus
Carmlchael  the  ehanee  to run  a
few plays   from    the   quarterback
spot.  Don Rolston saw  aotlon for
exactly two plays, and Ranjl Mattu
played all of the flrst quarter and
a Uttle more In the third.
The   Thunderbird   ground   attaok
started   rolling   In   the   flrst   frame
when they marched from their own
twenty-five yard  line to  the  Llona'
twenty, peeling off flrst downs aa they
went, like Warbueka peels of hundred
doUar   bUla.   Long   gains  by  Teagle,
Fournler, and Finlay carried the baU
deep into the Lion territory but here
the  Thunderbird  was stopped  dead
Three successive running plays gamed   them   naught   and   North   Shore
took  the  ball on downs and  kicked
to safety.
First score of the game came early
ln the second quarter when Johnny
Pearson booted a long fifty yard punt
behind the Hill Billies Une and Jack
Tucker, speeding down from end spot
tackled Bullock behind the line for a
rouge and one point.
No more scoring was done ln the
flrst half although the Varsity backs
kept tearing Into the Lion line for
long plunges. Modine was doing some
nice bucking for North Shore. With
goal to go, Varsity were again stopped by a determined Lion front wall.
Harmer, Poulton, and Teagle all tried
to crack the defense and were stopped cold.
In the third frame the Collegians
started to roll ln a real fashion and
with Finlay, Teagle, and Fournler
packing the pigskin, moved fifty-five
yards to the only major score of the
game. Consistently, reeling off gams
of fifteen yards, the Blue and Gold
went down to the fifteen ln five plays.
Ernie Teagle carried the ball over on
an off-tackle slant after a line buck
had been stopped, and then fell back
and drop-kicked the convert of his
own touchdown.
Nothing really exciting happened
after this point although Varsity
ipanaged to get two more points from
the hapless Hillmen. In the fourth
frame Pearson kicked one to the
deadline, and Freddie Smith rouged
North Shore threatened In the dying minutes when Bullock taking a
kick from behind the Une, passed to
Garney Smith who galloped fifty
yards before being hit by Currle, but
here their forward spurt fizzled.
The University of B.O. badminton
players leaped Into prominence on

Main    strength    of    the    Varsity

47-0 While Ubeecees
Drop Thriller 33-3
This week's English Rugger tllta
brought a queer assortment of results,
as the "A" team handed the Vancouver Arts Olub a 47-0 shellacking,
at the Lower Oval on Saturday, whUe
the Ubeecees suffered their worst
setback of the year, when they were
smeared 83-3 by the ex-Britannia.
The "A" team undoubtedly played
againat a far inferior squad, but even
granting ttys, there's no getting away
from the faot that the Careymen
were really working together as of
old. It was reaUy a treat to watch
the Varaity threes clicking smoothly
along like a beautiful machine. Passes
were right to the mark, running was
smooth and faat, and taokling was
clean and sure.
This exhibition of some real rugby was not by any means confined
to the three line, as the forwards
were bitten by the same bug, and
turned  In  their flashiest performance of the year also.
The game was a push-over right
from the flrat tweetle of Joe Refa
whistle. Jerry Wood had a red-letter
day   accounting   for   17  points  with
three tries and four converts. Howie
McPhee, substituting for brother Ted,
also garnered three tries and figured
ln   numerous   assists.   Lionel    Day-
Smith  pushed  over  two more  tries,
Tommy    Robson   clicked    for  three,
with  Lang  and  Davies  gaining  one
The win places the Careymen in a
flrst  place   tie  with   the   Meralomas,
although   they   have   figured   In   one
more contest so far this season.
The Ubeecee's tussle is better brushed over very lightly. They were up
against very superior opposition, and
really never had a look In. One soul
saved the students from the disgrace
of registering a goose-egg opposite
their name, when he carried the pigskin over for their only acore.
Mr. Carey seems to have made &'
real find In placing Ian Richards at
the five-eighths slot. This boy really
shone, getting the Une away faat and
olean almost every time. . . . MoPhee
and Wood clicked innumerable times
with a combination that had the
Arts lads plenty baffled. . . . Robson
as usual was a powerhouse in the
pack, as was Evann Davies.
Friday night Varsity Seniors "A'ers"
received their second setback of the
season, this time at the hands of
I.X.L.'s. Until half-time It was anybody's game. But when "Tony" Osborne replaced his tired regulars at
the breather, I.X.L.'s surged ahead.
After three-quarter time a revamped
Blue and Gold Une held their opponents scoreless but were unable to
make up their loss. Jean Thompson
led the co-ed scorers with 8 points.
Final score:  I.X.L., 37;  Varsity, 33.
The Senior B team won from Excelsiors by default, but lost to them
ln an exhibition game.
"A" TEAM: Adrlenne Colllna 4,
Ruth Wilson 8, Jean Thompson 8,
Jean Eokhardt 1, Lois Harris, Retty
Bell 4, Helen McWIlllams, Brenda
"B" TEAM: Johnson 2, Brant,
Smith, MoMurtrie 2, Phillips 3, McWIlllams,  RoweU,  Long, Hackney.

Junior Eleven Lose
First Game 2-0
The Varsity Thunderbird soecer-
msn went to New Westminster Saturday afternoon and returned the
same evening with nothing more
satisfying than a 1-0 defeat at the
hands of the league-leading Premier
Hotel eleven.
The only goal of the game oame
just before the end of the flrst half
when Spud Murphy, the Hotelmen's
hustling centre-forward, sorambled
the ball across the line after Leong
lost possession In making a nice save.
Previous to this the play was almost completely dominated by the
campusmen, but the forwards and
especially the Inside men, Doug Todd
and Basil Robinson, though playing
constructive football In midfleld,
were never In place to help polish
off Blue and Oold attaoks.
In the seoond half. It was the same
story over again with the fortunate
omission of a Premier goal. The collegians still had the better of the
play but were not hustling enough
In front of goal to give Max Howser,
the reliable Royal City keeper, any
too much trouble.
Though   Jim   Roblnaon   was   always trying, his goalmouth efforts
were    almost    singlehanded,    with
Basil Robinson and Doug Todd repeatedly behind the play.
Once again the half-back line was
the   mainstay   of   the   Varsity   team
and   they  were   ably   backed   up   by
Stew Roaoh  who turned  in yet another steady game at right-fullback.
Doug Todd was delightful to watch
In   mld-fleld,   and   with   Sasaki,   produced    some    brilliant    plays.    Phil

The U.B.C. soccermen met their
Arat defeat In three atarta on Saturday when they auccumbed to the
pachydermlo tactloa of Marpole to
the tune of a 3-0 defeat on the oampua.
Ken Eldridge's great little team
held thetr own throughout the bruising tuaale, and it was a very questionable play 'Which led to the visitor-)' flrat counter. The outside-right
after knocking the ball down with
his two hands kept on going till he
deposited the ball in the goal without any Interruption from the arbiter.
Playing host to the North Shore
team, Varsity's grass hookey team
suffered a sound trouncing, as the
Hillmen bounced them further Into
the ceUar by a score of 8-1.
Only Collegian to taUy was Roy
King. The StudenU were outplayed
throughout by the league leaders who
banged in five goals for their fourth
consecutive win.
