"The real Canadian Art is stuck
in the corner of kitchens," said Professor F. J. Brand, lecturing in the
UJ&-M36 JillJ-ddaxc ..... --.  - -
"On the coast here there Is a pitiful lack of understanding for modern
creative art. There is no artists organization, and the few Art Clubs
often show regrettable taste. Silly
Uttle second-rate copies of futile garden scenes cover peoples walla,
while the real stuff is neglected. In
our Vancouver Art Gallery for example the majority of paintings are
simply inane trash."
"The Artist aims to paint a scene
so as to stir up the same feelings as
have been experienced by himself.
This demands rigorous selection,
severe organization of detaU, and
much technique. If he aaaa a woman with a red face and a blue dress
standing against an azure sky he
may haw. to paint the face green,
the dress red, and the sky pink in
order to transmit his impression. To
make you think and feel is the chief
function of Art. Once you recognize the subject of a picture your
eapabUlty to appreciate that picture
is ended.
"Miss Carr," (some of whose pictures are now in the library) "is one
of the greatest artiste on the coast,"
stated Prof. Brand. A native of Victoria, she has had ample opportunity
to study Indians and their ways and
has managed to paint that universal
spirit of mankind that runs through
aU Indian Art. No details are expressed in her work but larger feelings, lurking things in forests, and
spirits swirling up out of the green
depths of nature.
"Max Maynard, another native of
Victoria, shows a peculiar sensitiveness to his environment. He is a
master cf painting technique and in
simple arrangements of line and colour can suggest dancing trees, antiquity, and fate. He uses colour
passages usually and like aU masters
In his nudes he suggests the human
form rather than paints'it."
Seattle Trip
By Pubblte
To the tune of tiw humming of
three motors driven by > co-eds and
1 male, 14 members of ths U. 8. C.
PubUcations Board started en their
journey to Seattle for the purpose
ef editing one Issue of the Washington Dally, campus journal of the
ttaivarrity of Washington.
The visiters arrived sans mlshgp on
the Jeutuey, net counting 1 flat tins,
arguMMnts about the exchange on
Canadian money, and 1 oar arriving
one and one-half hours earlier than
the test. Arriving on the beautiful

countless buUdings arose before our

that tha School of Journalism Wei

Of oource we then had no trouble in
locating the required buUdlng as only
4« per cent of the buUdingi were
brown and "down there."
When the other two can reached
tin buUdings, the VMJC. staff got
organised, and were introduced to
the Washington journalists. A thorough Inspection of the pubUcations
offices was made, the Canucks gazing In awe at the oountisss rooms
consisting of tho "Dally Shack" general press office, Journalist library,

W.A.A. to Sponsor
Pre-Show Supper
On Thursday Nite
Fortunate feminine spectators of
the big Players' Club murder on
Thursday night will have a rare
treat in the form of a Women's Athletic Association banquet which Is
to be held in the Caf. at six o'clock
on the fatal evening.
Chicken dinner will be provided
for the gum of thirty-five cents (or
not quite four bits). Special note is
to be taken of the fact that it is not
Hen No. 6, or even her descendants,
upon which hordes of starving coeds will descend.
It is said that there will be toasts,
but not underneath the chicken. Although a rumor Is also current that
a toast-mistress will preside, the
press was unable to lift the dark
curtain of secrecy which shrouded
her identity. A good time and a
big turnout are  expected.
Female  athletes  of  all  kinds  and
"Captain Brassbound's Conversion,"
the early "Play for Puritans" of Bernard Shaw, drew crowded houses at
the Little Theatre under the sponsorship of Delta Gamma fraternity,
Friday and Saturday.
The play shows tiie devesting effect on one clear-headed, determined
woman upon a band of brigands,
headed by Captain Brassbound, who
abducted her with her husband (Sir
Howard Hallam) while acting as escort through the Atlas Mountains.
The Captain loses his faith of revenging social justice as Lady Hall-
am reveals judges as men well meaning if misguided as he. Knowing not
what to do, Brassbound, in desperation, pleads for Lady Hallam's hand
to guide him.
Complications are unravelled with
usual Shavian dexterity. Sir Howard provides a foil for slamming
conventional ideas of justice. The
only part of the play smacking of
archaicism is the last minute of it.
The acting was commendable, Mra.

Gilbert and Magnets
Gilbert, "the father of magnetic
philosophy," was tho second British
scientist to receive consideration.
This man substantiated scientific
theory with deduction and discovered
the real basis of magnetism, but by
discrediting tradition he made trouble
for himself with contemporary authorities.
"The most remarkable Intellect
among English-speaking people," and
"an InteUectual giant among giants"
—in these words Dr. Buchanan paid
tribute to Sir Isaac Newton, as one
of England's greatest scientists.
The lecturer portrayed the background of Newton's studies, with
special reference to the Ptolemaic
theory, which supposed the earth to
be the centre or fixed point of the
universe, and which had existed in
Europe as the orthodox principle of
astronomy since ancient times. The
Dean showed how the work of Galileo, Kepler, Copernicus, and Descartes resulted In the overthrow of
the Ptolemaic theory and consequently paved the way for Newton's discovery of graviation as the regulating law for the movements of the
earth and of all other bodies.

Academy Destroyed
By Fire Caused By
Defective Wiring
Fire destroyed the Academy of
Mount Allison University, Sackvllle,
N. B„ on March 4, doing damage estimated at 160,000. This was the
third buUdlng on the same site to
be razed by fire since 1866.
Defective wiring started the blaze
at 3:00 p.m. and the flames swept
across the 160 foot front before the
blaze waa noticed. Shavings used
for insulation added fuel and were
devoured rapidly. Aided by a typical SackviUe breeze the fire spread
from the top floor to the lower
stories ta one short hour.
Students Uvlng on tiie fourth floor

with which tho fire spread. Others

New Monro Club
Tours Hospital
Members of the recently formed
Monro Club were shown the Vancouver General Hospital on Saturday afternoon, through the courtesy
of Dr. A. K. Haywood, general superintendent.
Five groups .each conducted by a
graduate nurse, visited first the New
PavUion, where the very latest in
diet kitchens was inspected. Then
to the top floor to see a multitude
of sterilizing rooms with giant autoclaves, anaesthetising rooms, and
finally the great glass-roofed, white-
tiled operating rooms. Here were
lights that cast no shadow, hot and
cold sterile water, and a host of
surgical equipment.
After traversing what seemed to
be a mile of "catacombs" built for
roUer skates, the students arrived in
the main building, where they saw
the maternity section. Interest here
centred around a small but valuable
water-cooled quartz lamp, used to
sun tan names on to the backs of
new arrivals, to prevent such mix-
ups as in Planofore. An added protection is In the form of a string of
lettered beads which cannot be taken

There ig no alibi lor students who do not
attend the performances o! the Players' Club
thig week—prices have been reduced below the
level of former years and a competent director and cast have been working for weeks to
create a finished and artistic production.
There ig no need to comment on the reputation of the Players' Club—seventeen years of
sterling performances have been gufficient to
establish that the society is without equal in
This year's production should be of especial
interest to all atudenta no matter what form of
entertainment they prefer. Those who are in-
teregted in amateur dramatics as an educational pursuit will find it particularly engrouing to
watch the local thespians in an entirely new
type of play to anything which they have befdre
attempted. Those who lay no claim to an appreciation of dramatic art, and it is possible that
there are such amongst us, can gcarcely excuse themselves on the grounds that they have
an Edgar Wallace novel to finish. Finally those
misguided souls who believe that every minute
should be devoted to pursuit of their academic
duties, even if it is possible that there are any
such amongst us, can surely salve their consciences with the knowledge that such relaxation as "Alibi" undoubtedly affords will provide
a vigorous mental stimulant to post performance studying.
After all, "the play's the thing."
Today students will have the opportunity of
exercising their franchise for the purpose of
electing next year's president of the Alma
Mater Society. The mere fact that there are
four candidates should cause high interest and
and a resulting large vote.
In previous years the vote has never broken
the fifty percent mark, but if a low vote is polled this year it will be a sad reflection on the
interest which students are taking in their own
affairs. Surely out of four candidates each student can pick one whom he prefers to all others.
Students are warned that the preferential
system of voting will be employed—that is each
ballot must be marked 1-2-3-4 not with a
straight X.
Laziness should not be tolerated as an excuse for not voting for it only takes a few minutes to walk up the stairs to the Council Office and write four figures.
The wide differences in the platforms of the
respective candidates provides for the use of
considerable discrimination in voting, for the
policies are one which vitally affect student affairs. It is impossible for us to comment on the
various planks without appearing partial, but
we will say that too much weight should not be
given to previous Council experience when voting—experience is a help but not a necessity
—what is needed is ability.
The Ubyssey wishes to, extend formally its
thanks to the Editor and staff of the University
of Washington Daily for the splendid hospitality they afforded the local staff on their recent
trip across the border.
We sincerely hope that our southern neighbors will see fit to extend an annual invitation
for the trip has proved very instructive to all
concerned. We certainly gained a considerable
insight into the ways of authentic journalism
and got a few pointers on staff organization
which should be of help next year.
It is fitting that there should be a close bond
of sympathy between the two Universities of
Washington and British Columbia for a scant
Such was the cryptic message which met
the startled ear—I think it was the left ear—
of this columnist last Wednesday night. It struck
terror to my heart, gentle readers; and well it
might, for wag not the next day Press Day,
with a scant fourth of the staff left to put out
the well-known Ubyssey?
Nevertheless, we did it, and even achieved
an air of sang-froid—at least the half of the staff
devoted to the final page did. The other half
which assembled to read galley prooof—with
what success one of the grossest errors of the
year in the second editorial shows forth—('my*
for •any') only attained a somewhat blase ex-
preggion of countenance, due to having gone
through it many times before.
The Washington Daily also survived,* in
spite of the Muckiah character which crept into it; the southerners were revolted to find the
following old veteran boxed In tha upper left-
hand corner of their sheet: "Let's Scandinavian

Interviews with B. C. students by the Wash-

Both gideg of the border. Mr. Boyd Agnew obliged with gome very Q-igh new words which
he claimed were-used on the Canadian campus
to designate the squeaker sex, while Miss Vivian Lexier was heard to hold forth on the relative merits of Canuck and Yankee dates—retaining a fine non-committal attitude the while,
and handing the youthful reporter a couple of
fast ones.
Some of those names had an oddly familiar
ring—"Spuzzuma," for ingtancd, ig ag I know,
the name of a town in the interior. The others
were just as oddly unfamiliar. For the world
I would not suspect my compatriots of indlug-

The following was discovered in the copy

I have just glanced across the Pub at the
highly embellished Bank of Commerce calendar on the wall. It is the one previously scored
by Mr. Butterfield for the Union Ja<=ks so

effort to shame. The rock in the foreground isj

eye of Councillor worthies appropriately named and characterized.
The point that I am really getting at, however, if I have not lost it completely under the
profuse mass of verbiage, is that March 24th is
marked definitely, not to say enthusiastically,
Which means only one more "O. O" to be
ground out for the doubtful delegation of what
I hoope is a plurality of readers. I am considering the possibility of indulging in that old-time
sport (so much enjoyed by the elite a session
ago) known as "blowing the lid off." Anyone
knowing of any good lids please get in touch
with me.
And while I'm on the Want-Ad line, I
would be grateful for any information obtainable re class poems, how written, why, etc.
I consulted one whom I thought might be of
help, and he immediately got a throw-back to
his own undergraduate days, and began to
spout as follows:
"Four years ago this beauteous spring,
Or else this beauteous faU,
All those of ua who're gathered here
Came to this coUege haU . . ."
I then decided to apply elsewhere, as this
did not seem just the right tone to take; the
sentiment set forth is too lofty, and the classes
of '33 want their class pome hot. Poets to the
fore; your Alma Mater needs you! Or rather,
I need inspiration, and Spring it not sufficient.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
For the past few weeks almost
daily reports have been forthcoming
from students who use the gym. that
their money or other personal property has been stolen from the locker-
room while they were on the floor.
Although "change" seems to be
the main objective of the thieves,
the latter do not paas up books and
even strip. In one particular Instance
a sUde-rule was stolen and the
owner found lt some time later in a
down-town second-hand shop. But
most of the stolen stuff is never
seen again.
If the thieves are students who
have been hit by the depression-
dismissing the possibUlty of kleptomaniacs In this case—they must have
been hit very hard and hit on the
head, for (to say the least) they are
breaking one of the strictest rules
of the Honour System. One wonders
wrfat these men would do if they
could not possibly pick students'
pockets. Would they hold up a bank?
Hardly, yet who knows?
It is up to the atudent body in
general, and every loyal member of
the A.M.S. in particular, to itop
these thieves and stop them now, for
already things have reached a stage
where students possessing lockers are
obliged to lock up not only their
valuables, but their street clothing
as well. Yet how about the students
who have no lockers In the gym?
Think this one over!
Yours for action,
P. B. S.

Dear Sir:
v Imagine my surprise, not to mention chagrin, on reading an article
attributed to me in your issue < of
March 7, 1033. Much as I appreciated the sentiments expressed (?),
the perpetrators of such a letter
might at least have signed their own
names. It is unfortunate that the
student body as a whole should be
denied through mistaken modesty,
the privilege of knowing these intellectual bright lights.

ciaggy field of sprinters and distance men, and the strength in
the Jumps and weights is certainly more than representative.
Illis should render competition exceptionally keen, and if tha
track is at aU improved, new records will be looked for in
several events.

Points for the winning clsaaes wtil
count on the 8-9-1 basis towards the
Governor's cup, and those should go

sprints, but will be extended all the

The quarter-mile will see renewed
the long-standing sprint rivalry between Pi Campbell, basketbaU ace,
and Max Stewart. It wiU be recaUed
that both men raced to 53.5 dead heat
in this event last year. Fordyce and
Barber, completing the list, will be
battling all the way.
Middle and Distance
The half should go to Barclay,
smooth-running Artsman, but Dave
Todd, Spragge and Fordyce wtil have
to be reckoned with. The mile event
wUl be a classic, featuring Alfie Allen, Swift, J. Smith and Barclay;
while the three-mile event should
produce a close contest between
George Allen, Swift and Sin-lair.
LuttreU wUl be star man in both
hurdle events, but wUl be lucky to

bring looked to by track followers.
However, EUett and Bowerlng will
give Steele a run in that event. The
pole vault wiU bring together Sedgewick, Little, Lucas and Webster.
Weight Events
StiU suffering from the loss of
Haddon Agnew, premier weight star
on the campus, Varsity's strength in
this division Is yet'to be tested, with
several new men making their debut, notably Farrington and EUett.
ITie former will concentrate, with
Goumeniouk, on the javelin event,
while the latter will specialize in the
discus. Keith Hedreen looks best
in the discus and shot-put events,
and should rake in a few points for
Arts '34.
Women Stars
The strength in the female division
is divided between Arts '34, Arts '35,
and the Nurses, and a merry battle
is expected between these classes.

Anglicans Beat
Union Theologs
In Track Meet
The Anglican Theologs showed
their atheltlc superiority when they
won the Scott Cup from the Union
Theologs on Friday 42-34. Despite
the inclement weather a fair number of supporters, including the faculties from both colleges, turned out
to cheer for their respective teams.
The Anglicans scored In the track
events but the United men were
more than their match in the field
The most exciting item was the
mile relay which was won by the
AngUcans. Ward of A.T.C. finished
a little ahead of Prlngle In the first
lap and Hariris widened the gap in
the second. Oollghtly of Union made
a brilliant effort but faUed to catch
Addison who ran a consistent quarter in the third. Dobson, anchor
man for Union College, dashed after
Loat and caught up to him after a
splendid sprint and the two of them
put up a fine fight. Loat was able
to unleash a burst of speed to sprint
in ahead of Dobson who had run
himself out In a valiant effort to
catch the speedy Anglican.
Loat, unfortunately, sprained his
ankle ln the broad jump and waa
unable to run in the mile in which
he was looked upon as a sure winner. Ward of A.T.C. gathered the
highest individual points with Oollghtly of Union College a half point
behind him.

Track Meet
Varsity's first out-door track meet,
a noon-hour inter-faculty relay affair staged last Friday, resulted In
a win for Arts '35 women, with Arts
men and Science faculty dividing
honors in the other two events. The
running in all events was of a high
order, with close competition noticeable in many of the laps. A new
record was expected in the half mile
relay, but a drizzle of rain and a
soggy track ruined all
the attempt.
aighllghte of Meet
Several exciting laps provided the
ever-welcome thrUl or upset; ths defeat ef Sid Swift at the hands of
John Smith, Science distance ace, in
tho mUe lap of the medley relay; the
great battle between Barclay and
Northcott; the brilliant running of
Wright aq- Stewart; and the defeat
of BUl Stott by McLellan in the first
lap of the 880, are a few examples.
The time in the half-mile relay,
which waa only 1 second outside the
old mark, was so close that the Track
Club have decided to sponsor another attempt at the record in the
very near future.

first half hour, and disinterestedly
watching the score go to 2-aU, Varrity Senior Soccermen woke up and
ran in a further seven goals without
reply to trounce the surburban team
by a 9-2 score at Trimble Park Saturday.
A South Burnaby half-back, Watson by name, opened, the scoring,
but put the ball through his own
goal In attempting to clear from Dave
Todd, after about ten minutes play.
Varrity further increased the score
when Munday sent the ball between
the posts. After this the Blue and
Oold forwards shotted off considerably, and, although playing a nice
passing game, missed many opportunities in front of the goal.
They were quickly wakened to action, however, when Dawson, centre-
forward for South Burnaby, broke
through for two goals In tbe space of
a minute. The first of the two goals
was one of the best of the game.
Dawson jumping up to head in a
cross from the wing. The second
taUy came with the defence out of
position, with Frattinger having no
chance for a save.
The Varsity forwards now assumed
control of the game, and pressed for
the remainder of the period. Their
efforts, however, only resulted in
one more goal, with Dave Todd doing
_ the honors.   The teams crossed over
chances' in1 ^Xn the scora Bt 3"2 ioT th* Co1*
The second stanza was a constant
procession of yellow-sweatored forwards to the suburbanites' goal. Varrity, with the breaks aiding them
slightly, and with all the players
showing good form, were constantly
attacking, and added six goals to their
Munday was the first to score
after the cross-over, tallying the
first goal within a minute of the beginning of the half. He was followed
a few minutes later by Dave Todd,
who drove the baU into tho net with
a hard drive. 1%e attack continued
as Laurie Todd seized on a loose
ball and drove it hard through the
Dave Todd added the seventi goal,
aa his drive struck the post and rebounded into the net. Shortly after,
Stewardson, Burnaby goalie, saved
a hard shot from Smith at the expense of a corner, and Costain's shot
from the spot curled round and into
the goal before the goalie, worried
by Munday, could reach It.
Munday added the final goal with
a minute left to play, as he pivoted
to drive the ball against the post and
into the net. The second half ended
with Varrity having scored six goals
while the Burnaby forwards had
had two shots on the Blue and Gold
Varrity were definitely in form on
Saturday during the last three-
quarters of the game. Their shooting was superior to that shown for
some time. The combination of the
forward line was good throughout
the game, and was responsible for
most of the  goals.
The team: Frattinger; McGill, McLeod: Stewart, Kozoolin, Wolfe;
Smith, Costain, Munday, L. Todd
and D. Todd.

Every Member Plays
Ivory member of Varrity\s Senior
A squad was given a chance to play
on Saturday night and every combination on the floor managed to
dick at quite regular Intervals.
Pretty combination plays were a
feature of tho evening, Mathison and
Wright giving the best example.
The chain store outfit were greatly
handicapped by thrir size and could
not figure out the zone difference of
the opposition. Both teams made a
poor exhibition on foul shots, but
the students had a good eye for the
basket on their field shots.
Students find Easy Going
Both teams played cautiously for
the first few minutes, but after that
Hooker Wright and Nicholson broke
away to score from underneath and
start things going. Red and Whites
scored a basket and foul to come
within one point of tying the score,
but from then on they were out of
thc picture entirely.
For   the   next   few   minutes   fouls
were the order of the game, U. B. C.
taking  advantage   of   it   to   increase
their   lead   to   11-3.    Matthison   and
