Advance Plans On Tuesday
All Years Hear Plans
To Organize Small
Class Groups
LEADERS SELECTED
Tuesday noon the presidents of all
the classes outlined to their respective classes the advance plans for the
proposed Union Building Drive prioi
to the Alma Mater Meeting Wednesday.
At all the meetings the presidents
explained to their classes the general
method of organizing for the campaign. It was pointed out that all
existing closely organized campus organizations would function in tha
executive is willing to work like
include the fraternities and sororities. Phrateres, the S.C.M., the Outdoors Club, the Theological Societies
and the C.O.T.C.
ORGANIZATION
It was emphasized that all students
who belong to any of these organization will work through them during
the campaign. All other students will
be arranged In groups of about ten
according to classes. The leaders of
these groups are to be selected by
the class executives and will work
under them. They will be responsible
for the activity of those In the groups.
ARTS '36
"I have come to the conclusion that
other campus organizations have more
'esprit de corps' than has Arts '36."
said Ewart Hetherington, '36 president, at a Senior class meeting Tuesday to discuss campaign plans to
raise funds towards the proposed
Memorial Building. "Those who do
wish to stand by the executive will
work under it in groups, probably
about ten to the group."
Of the seventy-eight members present, representing about one-third of
the class, fourteen elected to remain
with tha executive.
ARTS '37
At the meeting of Arts '37 held in
Sc. 200 John Logan, the class president, and John Harrison, President
of Men's Athletics, representing Students' Council, outlined the Union
Drive plans. About a hundred juniors attended the meeting and gave
their sunport to council's plans.
"Apart from our Individual efforts,"
stated Logan, "Arts 37 is making a
special contribution to the campaign
by sponsoring together with Arts 39

STANFORD TEAM HERE
In one of the wittiest and most interesting debates of the year, members of the Forum by a 19-10 vote
decided that conventions should not
')e abolished,  but retained.
Professor Day opened the case for
the abolition of convention with an
ttack against conventions of dress.
Women's dress, he said, was "unworthy, ugly, and indeed a financial nuisance." He declared that he did not
uphold many conventions such as
"Mother's Day," which was started
by a firm of New York florists in
finacial straits. And speaking of
Father's Day, he said that when
Father was discovered there was an
intensive campaign to sentimentalize
trouser suspenders as gifts."
LOSE INDIVIDUALITY
"The result of convention," he said
in conclusion, "Is that in thla modem
democracy people look, talk, dree* and
think alike. Freedom for self-expression Is a right we should endeavor to
obtain."
Sam Lipson, speaking for the negative, said that convention rrever could
be abolished. "Man is basically a
social animal. Some standard is required to determine what society expects from the individual and what
the individual expects from soctety.
Codes of convention are necessary to
uphold society. And conventions will
change in content only nnd not in
principle."
The two main speakers were followed by several from the floor, who
were allowed seven minutes each.
Armand Powlett said that the world
would be a much happier place if
certain conventions were abolished,
while Dave Fulton created a sensation when he announced that he was
"the child of Convention." Ben Siv-
ertz, for the negative, affirmed that

CAMPAIGN INSTRUCTIONS
1. Students are to solicit, personally or by mail, only their
families and immediate friends.
2. Do not solicit at all until you have submitted a list of
your prospective donors (surnames and initials), to either your
class executive, or to the executive of the club or society under
which you are working. Lists may also be dropped into the
box outside the Students' Council office. Be sure to place on
your list your own name with your year or the organization under which you are working.
3. Within two days of submitting your list, apply at the
Students' Council office and your list, checked, will be returned
to you.   Then proceed to solicit the people named thereon.
4. Students should obtain envelopes addressed to the correct place for receiving donations. These envelopes, printed, are
obtainable at the Students' Council office.
5. Circular letters, blank check form included, are obtainable at the Students' Council office.
6. Leaving it to the donor to mail is the poorest way.
Whenever possible, obtain donations yourself and deliver them
to the Council office yourself.
7. Cheque is the best means of payment. All cheques to
be payable to: "the trustees of the Brock Memorial Building
Fund."
8. All donations to be turned into the Students' Council
office. Receipts will be given. When turning in donations,
state under which club or organization you are working. Your
donations will then be credited to it.
9. As soon as a student receives a donation, he should
turn it in to the Students' Council office, because, until he does
so, he is personally responsible for it.
10. Please remember that this drive is for a memorial. The
soliciting of strangers, or any other high power tactics, would
be lamentably bad taste.
Jay Gould, chairman of thc student
campaign committee on the building,
read the report of Students' Council
on the project. The Women's undergraduate society had over a period of
years raised $11,500 for a Women's
Union Building and on Dec. 17, 1935,
had conceded it to a Students' Union
Building.
COMMITTEE FORMED
This start, together with the coming
of age of the university, tho fiftieth
anniversary of the city of Vancouver
and the tragic death of Dean and Mrs.
R. W. Brock resulted in the formation of a committee made up of the
Board of Governors, members of the
Faculty, the Alumni of the university,
prominent city business men and
members of the student body, with
Sherwood Lett as chairman. The purpose of this committee was to make
some fitting contribution, this contribution is to take the form of the student Union Building. The objective
is $150,000, and is the students are
willing to help in trying to raise 130,-
000 outside intersts will do their best
to contribute the rest.
The means of raising this money Is
for each student to contact his immediate friends and relatives asking
for voluntary contributions. "It
means the support of every student
to carry this campaign to success,"
stated Gould in conclusion.
Brynelsen then presented the motion asking for discussion. The only
opposition was in the form of ar>
amendment presented by Freth Edmonds and seconded by Len Martin,
asking that the manner In which the
money be raised by the students be
added to |he original motion, it was
defeated, and the original motion was
passed with an overwhelming majority.
ALUMNI SUPPORT
Before the meeting was brought to
a close Lex McKillop, representing
the alumni, congratulated the students on their stand and said, "It Is
13 years since I took part in a great
campaign and if half of the pep that
was present then shows itself now,,
success will be quite evident and we
of the alumni are right behind you
in your great campaign."
BRASSES TOPIC

Trumpets, Trombones and Bass
Tuba Discussed Five
Part Song Form
"You might say about the trumpet
that 'th',} music goes round and
round'," said Allard de Ridder at the
beginning of his lecture in the auditorium on Wednesday, "for you can
sec that the tubes are  in that form.
"There were at first two trumpets
in a symphony orchestra, but later
orchestrations call for throe or four;
•:onu) even requiring two trumpets
and two cornets, tor there is a slight
difference in tone."
Continuing, he said that the trumpet has three valves like the French
horn, one controlling a half tone, one
a full tone, and the third a lone and
a half. The effective range is from
middle C up an octave and a half to
A     Other   notes   are   obtainable,   hut
the tone is not very good.   It can be
played  staccato  or  slurred.
TRUMPET LOUD
"The trumpet is very good for loud"'
melody," Yre said, "but for soft passages the woodwinds are usually used'
instead. But both the trumpet and
trombone are wonderful to come
through the orchestra with a melody,
The muled trumpet tone is much like
the oboe, but it has a character of its
own and is used in special effects. In
combination with the trombone this
is very beautiful."
"There are usually three trombones.

STUDENT VANDALISM
Monday's snowfall cost us two hundred
dollars in broken windows and other petty
vandalisms. Incidentally it rendered the Arts-
men's Common Room more inhabitable than
ever, and removed a possible two hundred dollars from the Union Building fund.
One wonders if stupidities of this sort will
he inflicted on the Memorial Building which
we hope to build before next winter. It will
be something of a desecration if they are. We
can only hope that the students will grow up
on the twenty-first birthday, and show themselves to some extent worthy of the sums to
be expended for their benefit by many disinterested outsiders. For Heaven knows there
are better ways of spending money than on
pampered and ungrateful students.
IN DEFENCE OF WILLIAM
RANDOLPH HEARST
These be times that try men's souls, and
American citizens have certain liberties, to be
sure, but it is difficult to understand why the
Seatt'e Star should be allowed to abuse its
right of freedom of the press and attack William Randolph Hearst, that lovable and patriotic humorist and fiction-writer for the Arthur
Brisbane newspapers.
Does the Seattle Star think REAL RED
BLOODED AMERICANS are going to tolerate TREASON" Just who does the Seattle
Star THINK IT IS ANYWAY?
Last Thursday the editor of the Star, who
is an imported ALIEN from IDAHO, wrote a
piece for his SUBEIfsIVE paper in which he
tried to INDOCTRINATE THE SUBSCRIBERS with his RED YELLOW and PINK ideas
to the effect that William Randolph Hearst,
praise HIS name, is not so much a patriot as
a nut with a flag-waving complex and is not
heroically saving the country from itself but
on the contrary is doing it harm and making
of himself an as^ and a general all round nuisance the while, ,
I went to a Presbyterian thirtieth anniversary supper last week. No, I'm not a Presbyterian, nor for the moment was I a reporter. Per
sephone and I were invited, because of a far-
flung reputation we have for gastronomic appreciation, so we went.
And oh! the supper we had! Dinner at a fine
restaurant is all very well, you know the food
is going to be nice, you know what to expect,
and it's always just that. But restaurant food is
like a pretty movie extra, pretty, but lacking
certain nuances of character.
When you go to a church supper, that's
when you find those characterful nuances,
particularly a Presbyterian supper. Somehow
Presbyterian cooking has that 'je ne sais quois'.
(I wonder why I flunked French 3 that first
time. I have to keep my mouth closed nowadays to keep the French from tripping out over
my chin. Pretty thought.)
I realized after supper that I have something in common with Sir Arthur Sullivan, that
evening he sat down before the organ weary
and ill at ease, if I remember rightly. Except
that I can lose as many as three chords, metaphorically, in an evening at a church supper.
Loyalty has always been one of my strong
features, and usually I find a dish I like and
cling to it all evening. And that's where the
lost chord comes in. I never can find out who
made it nor how they did it. Last night a salad
and a caramel pie both deified themselves in
my estimation.
It's a funny thing. If you want good conversation go to an Irish Catholic, if it's good
lorm you want to try an Anglican, for the solid
virtues the Baptists shine, and for general all-
round competence the United Church. But
when the inner man becomes jaded and wails

All this is a GREAT BIG UN-AMERICAN
LIE
It is UNDEMOCRATIC.
Mr. Hearst's patriotic record and his great
contribution to American journalism are well
known. He haa always been a REAL RED
BLOODED AMERICAN and has more REAL
RED JEFFERSONIAN CORPUSCLES IN
HIS BLOOD THAN ANY MAN NOW
LIVING.
The editor ot die SUBERSIVE SEATTLE
STAR also pointed out that Mr. Hearst's con
tribution to the American cause in the World
War resembled a big round cipher.
This is a NASTY UN-GEORGE WASHINGTON LIE.
All during the World War Mr. Hearst was
furthering his experiments in OLD FASHIONED RED BLOODED HORSE AND BUGGY YELLOW JOURNALISM.
The Seattle Star's attack on Mr. Hearst,
praise HIS name, was PACIFISTIC, ROOSE-
VELTISTIC AND CLASS-STRUGGLISH. It
was also UN-JEFFERSONIAN AND UN-
JACKSONIAN
If the editor >f the SUBERSIVE Seattle
Star does not like the way Mr. Hearst is trying
to run this country WHY DOESN'T HE GO
BACK TO MOSCOW, IDAHO?
The Soattle Star should be DEPORTED.

This week the display of books on
the Exhibition Shelf of the Library
has been chosen by the Psychology
Club. While in some instances the
books ara inclined to be technical,
most of them will be found to be
within the reach of those students
who have not made a specialized
study of Psychology. The child, the
adolescent, the teacher and the nurse,
have all been considered and books
dealing with their respective difficulties are being shown. Practical applications of Psychology in industry,
vocational guidance, advertising and
religion are represented. Hypnotism,
mental disturbances and psychic phenomena are some of the subjects with
which the books deal and evin a book
on the "Psychology of Relaxation" is
shown. The following books are included in the exhibition:
Psychology Applied—by G. Crane.
If you want fascinating reading in
regard to advertising, salesmanship,
personnel administration, nnd successful business methods, don't overlook
this book.
Guidance At Work—by M. Stuart
md De Witt Morgan. Guidance, but
not of the O. G. M. type. A study of
Technical School systems in In'dian-
upol.s, showing methods, apparatus
and results.
The Road to Adolescence — by J.
Garland. This is not a work on psychology but a book, written by a
medical man with the interests of the
child at heart, sent out crusading for
better conditions for the pre-adoles-
cent being.
Applied Psychology for A urges—by
D, A. Laird. "Dedicated to the nurse
who would understand her own mental life and to the patient, whose mental life should be understood by the
nurse."

PROTEST MEETING
Editor, "Ubyssey," Dear Sir:
May we be permitted to take objection to the extremely high-handed
manner in which the Alma Mater Society   meeting   was   conducted   last
Wednesday?
Be it noted that:
(1) Tha students were first informed
that it was not for them to decide
what means were to be taken to raise
necessary funds.
(2) No steps were then taken to
secure student assent to the suggestion made by the A.M.S. attorney.
(3) The whole meeting was conducted in an extremely autocratic and
obiectionable manner. The way In
which the assembly dismissed without any referendum to the house on
the suggested plan of campaign was
an ugly surprise to most students
present.

L.  W.  Greenwood,
P. V. Akrlgg

Social Work Administration—by El-
wood Street. This book is written
with a background of success in administration of social agencies. The
author has set forth a system which
works basing it upon the > ragmatic
. .nation, "That is true whirh works."
grieved, and find I have nothing particular to
be aggrieved about, I always hark back to the
Teachers' Convention dinner last fall. That was
a good dinner, of Presbyterian generation, too,
ask Dean Buchanan, he was there.
Anyway, we got to the dessert course, and
pie was handed around. I was at the end of the
table, and there were two of us unserved. A
plate arrived with lemon pie perky with meringue. I haven't anything against lemon pie, it's
like one of these people you see every morning and get into the habit of saying "Good
morning" without forming any more permanent
attachment.
I handed it to the gentleman at my right,
who insisted on my keeping it. (He was a
U.B.C. alum, you could tell, not a scienceman,
probably an ex-executive member' of the Players' Club). So I couldn't hand it back. I ate the
meringue with faint interest, and just as I was
getting down to the main lemon part, his pie
arrived.
It was chocolate cream pie with whipped
cream. Ironih!

guidance of the child. The author is
a director of an Institute tor Family
Guidance as well as a professor of

This book has not been out of the
Library for a couple of y.^ars so a
number of people have gone without
a good laugh.
Applications of Psychology—by F.

into three main sections. If you hope
to get a job during the summer read

Editor, "Ubyssey," Dear Sir:
As one who has witnessed two public performances of the play "Waiting
For Lefty", in addition to watching
rehearsals and reading the script
through twice, I strongly differ with
your reporter who designated the
play as "an Inspired communist propaganda play."
The play Is simply an analysis, right
or wrong, of the existing social order.
Nothing is advocated by the context
of the play to remedy the defects in
the analysis.
Only to individuals of prejudiced
opinions could the struggle of a
striking taxicab union in New York
be construed as "Communist Propaganda."
It is a fact that the Communist
party and its literature and propaganda are illegal in Canada and
(more recently) in the United States.
Does it not seem strange then that
(assuming the play to be "communist
propaganda") its entry into the Dominion of Canada Drama Festival from
Toronto and Vancouver was permitted?
And what of its entry Into the Yale,
New Haven Drama Festival, where
the judges, headed by W. P. Eaton,
Dean of Yale Drama School, judged
it to be the bsst among many excellent competitors?"
Again, it may interest your reporter to learn, that during an extensive
tour, only two cities, Boston and
Vannouver. have obiectcd tn its presentation. Even Boston's only objection was that "it wis an immoral
t>lnv." Annnrently we are to conclude that the "communist propaganda" so cleverly discerned by your reporter, and some of his fellow scribes
in town, is far too insidious for any
one else to recognize.

CRITICIZE CRITICS
Editor, "Ubyssey," Dear Sir.
Several groups of students are raising objections regarding the Brock
Memorial Project.
They seem to forgot the following
facts:
The campaign must be conducted,
as has been stated with dignity and
restraint. Surely the Permanent
Memorial Committer, composed as it
is of mature men, with years of experience, can decide the method of
collecting funds better than a group
of students.
Their decision has been considered
carefully over a period of some
weeks. Yet Wednesday a minority
of students raised objections to the
plan, without having any constructive
suggestions to offer.
Others seem to think that the
building will be a sort of playhouse,
utterly useless. These would-be self
sufficient critics forget that half of
a University education is the training
in mingling with one's follows, and
that a centre for such \ purpose
would add immeasurably to the benefits accruing from U.B.C. attendance.
They propose that the money should
be used for another purpose—forgetting that, if the students do not want
to put up a Union Building, the
down-town committers will withdraw
their $120,000, and that then there
would be no student campaign, and
no $30,000—no money, in short, to use
for a better purpose,
Yours truly,
Sophomore.

Playful Punks
Plunk Panes
The recent snowstorm caused a
corresponding storm of broken glass
on the University campus. Battling
students gaily ran through approximately $200 of caution money in the
short space of two days.
The greater part of this money was
lost through glass broken by well-
aimed snowballs. Altogether 51 panes
of glass were smashed, ranging In
size from ten panes of about 43x34
inches to panes 10 inches square.
This was not all. There was also
the cost of painters' time in installing glass and painting, extra janitor
service, and extra labour for cleaning
rifles and ammunition damaged by
water in the C.O.T.C. room when the
fire hose came into use as a weapon.
Altogether these add up to at least
$200.
A combination of the weather and
the Alma Mater meeting made Intramural competition impossible on
Wednesday and Thursday. However,
the double header in the gym will go
on schedule today. These two basketball games will feature Sc. '38 vs. Sc.
'37, and Education vs. Arts '36.
Intra-mural managers are requested to hand in a list of the teams before the game. These lists should be
turned into the Pub. office in good

Had the Tuesday editions of the
Vancouver Sun appeared a trifle incoherent and unorthodox, it might
have bsen attributed to the fact that
the Ubyssey's editorial and reportorial staffs had taken over editing of
the newspaper for the day. That the
Sun on Tuesday was not Incoherent,
Sut neat, comprehensive, and sparkling with brilliant features and write-
ups, is attributed to the fact that
writing, editing and printing the
Ubyssey has imparted valuable news
sense and experience to the campus
'ournallsts.
Editor-in-chief John Cornish, having written his editorials, supervised;
City Editor Zoe Clayton and her assistant Lloyd Hobden grimly weeded
nut incoming phone calls from a maze
of unrelated monoohones; and staff
columnist Alan Morley, surveying the
humming scene with a lofty eye,
waxed satiric in his column.
Sitting confidently at the crescent-
shaped news-desk were five editors-
Dick Elson, Jim Beveridge, Ken
Orant, Norman DePoe and Dorwin
Baird—through whose hands and into
whose control they were led to believe all incoming news dispatches
oassed. Theirs, theoretically, was the
oower to choose wh*t news should
be set before the Sun's reading pub-
He. Swelled with dictatorial pride,
they 'ran' this and rejected that,
wrestling valiantly with the type of
heads assigned them bv News Manager Dorwin Baird. Between them

the tug had not sunk and hadn't even
come from Vancouver.
In the Sports Room, quite literally
papered with photographed footballers, fighters and golfers, Kemp Edmonds, MUt Taylor. Bill van Hnuten,
Howie Hume and Frank Turner
struggled to capture the note of light
abandon that characterizes Sun Sports.
Madee Neill and Alison Macintosh
romped blithely through the Society
Page, journalistic peeresses for a day.
Student reporters took ovsr all regular newspaper beats. Dave Crawley
roared the waterfront. John Brynelsen and Stan Weston underwent
some shuddery moments among the
i'owsm and Exhibits A at City
Morgue and Coroner's Court. Doris
Tohin, Dorothy Cummings and Norah
Sibley interviewed prominent Vancouver citizens on the value of the
University, with the understanding
that any cltlren who refused to admit
the University had any value would
not be quoted. Other reporters had
equally Interesting assignments.
One exciting feature of the day was
the broadcasting of the regular Sun
News reports at noon and 6 o'clock,
In the mellow baritones of John Cornish and Dorwin Baird, both of whom
had trouble in enunciating "Tony
Canzonerl." However neither said
"Vancouver Saily Dun," as expected,
so that all went relatively smoothly.

staccato or slurred.    The  trombone
has a peculiar effect,   especially   if'
"and they are of two kinds, tenor and '

they give a very unusual colour.      I
"The bass tuba is the bass of the
brasses," he added, "the tone without
eing harsh is tremendously powerful, and gives a massive effect much
like that of the bass notes of an organ. It gives sonority to the rest of
the orchestrations."      >
In demonstration of these instruments the players with him gave stirring excerpts from "Sheherezade," by
Rimsky-Korsakov, with Mr. de Ridder representing the rest of the orchestra on the piano.
SONG FORM
Turning from instruments to form
he said, "To-day we will start with
the five part song form. This form
consists of a first part, which recurs
twice again with a completely different part inserted between each, then
the last repetition leads to a coda.
"We will now go on to the rondo
forms. They are derived from the
part song forms, and are n step on
the way to sonatas. The rondo consists of a recurring theme with intervening passages, which may be
practically new themes. They are in
three forms, which are called rondos
in the 1st, .2nd and 3rd degree, so
called because of their resemblance
to the 1, 2. and 3 part song forms."
To demonstrate these forms Elsje
de Ridder, his daughter, played the
second movement of Beethoven's
"Sonata Pathetique," and ihe finales
from two Kuhlau sonatinas. In speaking of the "Sonata Pathetique" Mr. de
Ridder said, "This is one of the finest
melodies ever written; I doubt whether it will ever be surpassed." Of the
sonatinas he said, '"Hiey are pretty,
but harmless."
"The rondo," he concluded, "is frequently used as the last movement
of a symphony; it is usually a light
movement. It is quite hard to keep
the rondo forms apart; and many
musical students get a headache when
they start to study rondos."
The musical form to be studied
next week is the Sonata.
Library Has
Art Exhibit
The Faculty room of the Library,
since Tuesday of this week, has been
open to University students with an
exhibit of thirty-nine pieces of dry
point by three British Columbia artists, Paul Ooranson, Orville Fisher,
and Edward Hughes. Ths display,
brought to the University under the
auspices of the Art Club, has already
been successfully shown in the Vancouver Art Gallery.
The etchings show, mostly, familiar
scenes of the province, many of them
near Vancouver; for example,
views of Hopkln's Landing, Gibson's Landing, Howe Sound, and Si-
wash Rock. There are as many
waterfront scenes as there are nature
scenes. Some show ships in Burrard
Inlet; one shows two old men crab-
fishing; and one has rather an unusual subject, and is called "Ship's
Graveyard." Another curious idea
for an etching is seen in thc picture
"A Group of Unemployed."
The group contains also two pencil
drawings of heads by Goranson, and
two religious panels, one by Goran-
son and one by Fisher. These are
original sketches of the murals ln the
First United Church.

was unanimously approved.
ARTS '38
At the Arts '38 meeting on Tuesday
n Arts 100, Dave Carey, Men's Athletic Representative of the class, outlined the Brock Memorial campaign
as it applied to '38.
"We're not on a competitive basis,"
s:;id Dave Carey, "so do your canvassing quietly. But we have to raise
the money, and it means hard work.
We put on a darn good class party,
and we've got to keep up the work.
It you each set yourself p definite

The meeting was interrupted near
the end by well flung snowballs from
outside, yells of attacking forces, and
the crash of a window pane. About
sixty sophs turned out to get their
instructions.
ARTS '39
"Arts '39 must put forth a supreme
effort for the Union Building, as thoy
out of all the classes nt'Varsity, will

class of '39 in the auditorium Tuesday noon.
After being introduced fcy Elmer

short talk on thr sacrifices necessary
to gain the required sum of money.
"In the Brock Memorial, we are potting a $150,000 building," he said.

GROSS COUNTRY BUNION DERBY ON FEB. 19
McKechnie
Game Probably
Cancelled
Frost Makes Brocton Hard
As Nails
The weather is still playing
tricks on the rugby moguls and
the scheduled McKechnie Cup
game will likely be postponed
as was the Miller Cup play-off
last Saturday. The Wednesday
thaw raised the hopes of the
grounds committee, but the frigid temperature of yesterday
froze the ground too hard for
play. A little soft snow on a
mud layer just changes the
game into a battle of the forwards, but hard grounds make
injuries too certain.
If the game for tomorrow is cancelled then the Thunderbirds will not
meet the Victoria men until the 22nd
of February, since the Miller play
has to be worked in on the 15th. If
any further delays occur, Varsity
may drop out of the Tisdall Cup
League which may continue late in
March.
However, the collegians are not
waiting for the weather to go through
their paces. The regular practices are
being held, with the Athletic director
giving the boys some work-outs that
surprise them.
Now ths ruggers are in shape for
any game and have a healthy respect
for gym workouts.       —PETAP1ECE.

One of the toughest races of the season Is scheduled for Feb, 19th. The
cross country race, better known as the "Mudders Delight", starts from the
Administration building, and as the cut shows, continues through as many
fields and detours as possible.
Although flags mark the course, entries are advised to cover the course
at least once before the race starts, as ln.previous yean many runners have
been lost. The race requires headwork in order to avoid muddy patches and
ditches, as the runners will find out to their sorrow.
A few entries have been received to date, but It is hoped that each class
will provide at least one man. The race will be held at noon hour, so a good
turn out is expected.

Total Profits To Be Donated To Memorial
SWEET
CAPORAL
CIGARETTES
On the 21st of this month the Varsity puck-chasers will be given a
chance to redeem themselves when
they meet the University of Washington team in the local Arena.
The home team has been practising
faithfully since their defeat at the
hands of the Huskies, and they expect to be able to giw the opposition
a little more competition this time
The main factor in last week's defeat
was lack of a goal-keeper but this deficit has been remedied (we hope)
with the inclusion of a likeiy-looking
custodian of the nets in thc person
of Johnny Sanderson, a sophomore
from the interior.
GOALIE NEEDED
The discovery of a new net-minder
may prove to be all the Thunderbirds
need to make them a winning team
of Thunderbirds. In the words of
one of the Seattle sports commentators "the B.C. team is just as good
as our boys, but they didn't have a
chance when they forgot tn bring a
goalie with them.
This opinion was seconded by Frank
Frederickson, one of the all time
"greats" of hockey, although his period of active playing ended several
years ago. He said, in reference to
the U.B.C. squad, that "a bum hockey
team with a good goal-keper is much
better off than a good team with a
poor one, or practically none at all."
FUND TO MEMORIAL
The forthcoming contest is well
worthy of support from the student
body for several reasons. The entire
proceeds (the Huskies do not even
get expenses) are to go to the fund
for the Brock Memorial Building for
one thing, and this Is the only sport
in which we can compete with any
other major college. Students should
be a little interested in their national
sport, even though they are remarkably lax in their support of most of
their colleges efforts at sport of various kinds. When the Washington
players are willing to pay their own
expenses to help our campaign, we
at least ought to show our appreciation by giving them a little encouragement when they come up here.
The game is scheduled to start at
8:30 and tickets will go on sale on
the campus next Monday.
Although it is not absolutely definite as yet, it is expected that the
ice will be open to the public for an
hour's free skating after  the  game.
Following the precedent set by the
Huskies when they had Dave Gil-
hooly, captain of the Seattle Sea-
Hawks, referee the game there, Tip
O Neill, Lion's captain, will perform
similar duties here. —VAN HOUTEN.
Hal Is Fight
Promoter
According to the tales ♦»••*
were going around the Sports
room of the Sun last Tuesday,
the noon-hour snow fights Monday can be directly attributed
to Hal Straight, Sun sports
columnist.
It seems that the Sun thought
that some snow fight pictures
would look good In the U.B.C.
Issue on Tuesday. So Harry
Joyner, stall photographer,
brought out his camera Monday noon. But that wasn't all
he brought. In order that he
would be sure to get his pictures, Harry got the Straight
lad to tag along too.
Hal came into the Ubyssey
office Just before noon, gathered together some of the dizzier of the Sports staff, and set
out to have some fun. A few
well-aimed snow-balls here and
there and the fight was on. Be.
fore long half the campus was
engaged In tossing the Icy
oranges, with the resulted loss
in plate glass.
But the Sun got their pictures
and Straight had his fun, at the
expense of our caution money.
FOOTBALL
NOTJVIAJOR
Contrary to a report appearing in
ar. earlier edition of the "Ubyssey"
American football has not been
raised to tbe rank of a Major Sport
on the Campus. The resolution before the Men's Athletic Society that
the game be given a major rating
was withdrawn, since it will not be
played next year, and the consideration of giving out Big Blocks was left
up to the discretion of tho Cig Block
Club.
Although the reading does not actually say so, this action is taken to
mean that a limited number of Big
Blocks will be given out to members
of this year's American squad, and
that if the game appears again at
U.B.C. then will be the time to decide its rank.

Many and diverse are the plans that
have been and will be advanced to
raise funds for the Union Building,
and almost as many and various have
been the efforts to raise interest in
thc Intramural  Sports program,  but
here's the first one that combines the
two—A "Chink" Tournament. For the
benefit of thc uninitiated a few words
of explanation are necessary.
"Chink" is nothing more nor less
than abbreviated basketball. Its origin is sunk in the misty depths of
antiquity, but any tinvj a handful of
melon-tossing addicts assemble, they
inevitably play "Chink" <go over to
the gym anytime and see!). Both
teams shout, into one basket instead
of two, and the rules are id'entie.il
except  in  three  eases.
Instead of tossing the ball in the air
to start a game, one team shoots from
the foul line. Also, after each basket
two shots are awarded to the scoring
player. If he scores both of these the
ball is thrown in from the end. A
game consists of twenty-one points,
with no tinve-limit set. A match consists of three games.
INTRA-MURAL POINTS
This tournament will be run as follows: The teams shall consi.it of three
men ee.ch. These teams may not contain more than one Senior A man,
more than two Senior B men, nor one

Two big games are in store
for the Varsity Basketball team
within the next week. Although
their regular league schedule
is finished they will be playing quite a few tilts yet before
they hang up their strip for the
season.
On Saturday the opposition will be
an All-Star Community League £<iuad
v/hile on Tuesday noon thoy will
meet Bellingham Normal '.n tho gymnasium.
The game Saturday will be a special exhibition to take the plaoe of a
preliminary for the second playoff
between Adanacs and Province, who
are out to fight for the Inter-City
League Championship. Both exhibition and playoff will be well worth
the time to see,
The Tuesday noon game is one of
John Harrison's inter-collegiate struggles, and brings to the campus another team to which the Thunderbirds
have already lost this year, although
by only a single point in the best
game they have played.
The game will be at 12: lb in the
gym and tha usual admission of ten
cents will be charged to help defray
the travelling expenses of the U.S.
squad.
A more particularly stupendously
magnificent and extraordinarily colossal exhibition will be presented before the watering eyes and gaping
mouths of the astonished students
when the Harlem Globe Trotters,
spectacular n-egro hoopers, visit the
campus a week today. This team is
a.s much a vaudeville team i>s a bas-
Ketbal one, and how good that must
be can be seen from the tact that
they win something like 95 percent
of their games.
Rowers Prepare
For Spring Regatta
The Rowing Club has practically
formulated the plans for the Spring
Regatta and the meet in thc States.
Coulter, Stevens, McLeish, McDuffee
and Morris are fairly certai.i of making the grade. The rest of the crew
is not yet chosen but this week coaches Brand, West and Brown will choose
the rest of the men.
The lists of the final crews chosen
will be announced next week. Announcement of interest to tbe Co-eds
will also be given at that time, so
