P.D.C. DEFEATS
COLLECTIVE
SECURITY IDEA
Much Heated
Discussion
Collective security with the United States and Great Britain went
down to defeat yesterday noon at
tbe first formal mooting of the
mucb-dlsci)ssed Political Discussion
Club  In   Arta  100.
Tbe reaolution, "That Canada co-
oprate primarily with the U.S.A.
In defence polloy, and secondarily,
footer cloaer Canadian-American
co-operation with Great Britain in
auch a plan" was put to the house
by the Liberal faction under Dar-
rel Braldwood on the baala that the
economic and geographic intereate
of Canada and the U.S. parallel
each other, and that Great Britain
cannot go far to defend Canada
adequately.
BRITAIN   NOT   SUPREME
Bernard Reid, seconder to tbe
motion, carried on the argument
atatlng tbat JDngland waa not, aa In
tbe paat, unopposed, and dominent,
In world affairs, apd could not, becauae of her Interests on the seven
aaaa give Canada the adequate protection tbat could be offered by the
United States, an equally great
power with only two coasts to defend, and her Interesta centred in
one continent.
To baok hla oentontlon of Brl-
talna  declining  power  he  aakad
why she backed dewn In regard
to Italy In Abyalnnla, and In re*
gard to Japan In Manohukuo and
China.   "Japan haa openly atatad
that    England   cannot   dominate
tha  Far Eaat," he daolared.
Tbe conservative opposition came
forward   under  Don   McGiil   to   refute the arguments of the Liberals
by stating tbat defence policy  Implies also offensive measures ln the
long run.    He pointed out that ln
the  case  of an  agreement  for defence   Canada   would   tlnd   herself
liable to aupport tbe United Statea,
as well as England, if those countries became Involved in anything.
CONSERVATIVE  VIEWPOINT
That annexation would follow,
waa tbe claim of the Conaervative
taction under McGUl, a movement
whioh Would be reached by gradual
economic domination. He pointed
to Cuba a* an example.
In   regard  to   tha   poaltlon   of
Oreat Britain and her ability to
offer defence, Mr. McOlll pointed
out that  Qraat   Britain's  ability
to do so depended on Canada, to
a  great  extent, a* aha was ths
chief dominion. In support of thla
he  quoted  th*   Frenoh   Premier,
"Th* trouble with  entering  Into
any agreement with your country
(England) la that we never know
where the raat of your empire le."
Queation   of   the   League   of   Nations came before the house at this
point in the discussion.   It was contended by both McGiil and the imperialists, under Norm Depoe, that
the  Monroe  Doctrine and the  U.S.
position   as   a   non-member   of   the
League    of    Nations    would    force
Canada   into    two   opposite   directions.    Canada's policy could not be
based   on   such   conditions,   it   was
declared.
SOCIALI8T OPPOSITION
Socialists came forward through
the medium of Stanley Bailey to
declare that the resolution was not
wide enough, and that Canada
should co-operate in a reorganized
league of Great Nations. He asked
that the League be given "real
teeth," and that a world constabulary be established to nip "in the
bud" such things as the Italian and
Japanese exploits.

Frosh Party Tickets
Scalped Left-handed
Tickets to the frosh party were
selling as low as thirty-flve cents
on the campus Thursday afternoon. Taking advantage of the
"bargain prices," upperclassmen
bought up a good many of the
pasteboards.
A double ticket for fifty cents
could be obtained by anyone with
the right connections, with dozens of serious frosh letting their
free tickets go for what they
bring.
Once again Willa Elliott, a star
of the 1937 Musical Society
production, "Robin Hood," will
be singing a lead part when the
curtain goes up on "Yeomen of
the Guard" this month.

Expenses Going Up;
Satire On Budget
A novel way of making up club
budgets was described to Students' Council by Dave Carey Monday evening.
"When I was a freshman and
had to make up a budget for a
group, they told me to take last
year's budget and add on 950,"
tbe prealdent stated.
TECHNOCRATS
DISREGARD
COUNCIL RULE
Council ruling- forbid political
factions gathering outside of the
Political Discussion Club meetings,
but at least one party has adopted
the policy ot having private sessions.
A    half   doaen    "technoorata,"
formed aa a aactlon of tho Political Olacuaalon Club, have booked
Arta   103  for   Wedneaday   noona,
for tha purpoae of having "atudy
groupa."
It was  study  groupa  In the  original P.D.C. constitution .that were
banned by council two weeks ago.
What action will be taken ln regard
to   the   direct   disobedience   of   a
council ordinance is not known.
SVKBS
Paul Sykes Is believed to be the
leader of the technocrats. Sykea
haa had prevloua experience with
the Discipline Committee, and may
appear before that body again on
charges of stepping out of line in
connection with the political rulings of Students' Council.
VARSITY TIME
IMPROVES
By HELEN HANN
The "improved" Varaity Time
program made its debut over
CJOR Wedneaday evening ,to receive the plaudits of the listening
audience.
According to a  poll conducted
by   tha   Ubyaaey   Thursday,   Varaity  Time   haa   picked   Itself   up
from the doldruma and  la off to
a new atart.
Script  for   the   feature   was   pre-
ared by Jim Beveridge, and handled
by a new staff of voices, under the
direction of Struan Robertson. The
program   took   the  form   of  an  imaginary tour about the campus, to
advertise Open House.
OPEN  HOUSE
The tour took the visitor to
chemistry laboratories, to the economics seminar, the mining department and other campus locations.
Callum Thompson provided several musical numbers. CJOR's
Ronny Matthews alao assisted with
an organ rendition ot "Hail U.B.
C." at the closing.
Victor Freeman, Joyce Cooper
and Jack Stark announced the program.
Economists Will Blight
The Life Of Little Johnny
By DARBY
One day last summer I had the
intereating experience of attending
a doll festival, where aeveral hundred Vancouver kids had gathered
together their mute playmates, to
be put on show, judged, given
prizes, just like babies, dogs or
horses.
There I met Johnny, the hero of
this story.
Johnny, aged five, was exhibiting
in the home-made doll  section. He
had   an   ordinary   china   doll,   with
flaxen hair and a dangerous smile,
all done up in the most splendiferous  outfit.   Johnny  explained  that
he hadn't made the doll, but he had
dressed it, and wasn't that enough ?
It   was.    Johnny's   doll   had   a
terrific set of clothes, particularly
when the tender age of the designer was brought into consideration.
GENIUS
He was a budding genius. In
twenty more years, one of our leading artists, a potential designer of
great repute.
So   I   asked    Johnny   what   he
wanted to do when he grew up.
His   answer:     "I'm   going   to
dress dolls."
"But that." I objected, "is
something for children to do."
Johnny didn't think so. Briefly,
his ambition was to get a big store,
buy dolls in the taw, think up
pretty clothes for them, dress 'em,
and  sell  at a profit.
Even at the age of five, Johnny
was    perfectly    positive    about    all
this. He was going to dress dolls
all his lifetime, and there was going to be a great deal of profit in it.
A MORAL TO THE YARN
Johnny's simple attitude about
this forms the moral of my yarn.
You see, I could hardly spoil his
happiness by telling him that he
was on the wrong track, that he
couldn't do what he wanted, that
the world has made it impossible
for him to do so.
But if I had told him that it was
impossible, and he had come back
with the childish, "Why?", then
my explanation would have been:
It's this way, Johnny. People in
the world no longer live by buying
things, improving them, and selling
them at a profit.
It can't be done. It isn't done.
That's all, Johnny. Universities
keep big staffs of men to explain to
their students why it can't be done,
and why it isn't done. They call
them "economists." You 'wouldn't
understand them—most of us don't.
Now, if you went to an economist
with your business  idea,  he  would
throw up his hands In horror.
VERY COMPLEX
"What," he would ask, "of business cycles, middlemen, the gold
standard, supply and demand, per-
iod price fluctuations, demands of
labor?"
I'm afraid, Johnny, that you
haven't taken these things into
consideration. The economist would
tell you so, though you wouldn't be

Saskatoon Seeks
Abolition of Late
Afternoon Lectures
SASKATOON, Feb. 11 (WIP
U)—Steps by the authorities of
the University of Saskatchewan
towards the complete abolition of
4.80 classes was asked in a resolution passed by a apecial oommittee ot the Student's Representative Council and placed In the
hands of President J. S. Thomson.
The resolution is as follows:
"WHEREAS the committee set
up to Investigate 4.30 classes haa
rendered a very comprehensive
report and whereas we are particularly concerned with the fact
that students are thereby prevented from participating in inter-
faculty sports and from attending student meetings, and whereas we regard the matter of sufficient Importance to merit the
attention of the officials of the
university:
THEREFORE be it resolved
that we request the university
authorities to take whatever
steps they deem necessary with
the view to the abolition of 4.30
classes from  the  campus."
able to understand his way of doing it.
But what the economist would
really mean, Johnny, is that things
In this world are so complex that
you simply couldn't get along the
old way. You would have to follow
the trend.
There would be no living to
make, the  old way.
At least, that's what everybody
believes, so nobody tries it.
So, unless you are willing to float
a bond issue, put out common, preferred stocks, and build a factory
on a 30-acre lot, and a lot of other
things, you'd better put away your
dolls, and become a "man."
... I'm afraid that if I'd told all
this to Johnny, aged five, he would
have become a Communist, right
there and then.
Directs New Action
Against governors
University Finances
Crux of Question
Students' Council is still attempting to convince the U.
B.C. Board of Governors that the 925 fee increase, and registration limitation should not be placed in force this fall.
Council and governors' representatives will meet to*
gether If the latter body agrees to such a conference.
Every effort to stave off the new regulations will be
made by council, with the prospect of another A.M.S.
meeting In the offing.
Also wanted by the student officials is some indication
from the board of the real need for the fee increase.

"LITTLE GYM"
IN STADIUM
There's some extra space In tbe
basement of the new stadium that
will be put into uae aa soon as Students' Council decides what to do
about It.
Several times recently Council
haa discussed proposals for finishing the atadium. Monday night tbey
got down to business by deciding
not to go straight ahead with Carey's plana tor a aquaah court.
"LITTLE   GYMNASIUM"
Instead t>yall Vine, chief opponent of the squash Idea, will look into possible ways to make best use
of the available accommodation.
Vine expressed the hope that tbe
space be used as a "little gymnasium," for some of the smaller physical education classes.
Also, it was suggested that a canvas screen be purchased to divide
the gymnasium Into two sections
so that classes using only half of
the floor would not necessitate
having the whole gym closed while
they were In session.
Cost of the stadium project will
run anywhere up to $2,000, it is believed by those who have surveyed
the situation.
Men On Council

Six male membera of Studente'
Counoil balked at breaking the
A.M.S. conatitutlon Monday night,
thereby aaaurlng themaelvea of

Led by Dave Carey, who told
Peggy Fox that omitting the customary oounoil passea to the ball
would be aettlng "a dangeroua
precedent," the admlniatrative
malea voted themeelvea the right
to attend the Co-ed free—if they
don't get bide.
Under Article VIII, C1 5 of the
A.M.S. Code, all Class A officeholders get free tlokete to eooial
and other aotlvities of ihe etud-
ent body. "We oan't break the
constitution," Carey reminded
Peggy.
verelty tor tbe paat year would
demonatrate auch a need, council
declared Monday night. If, of
eourae, the atatement did not ahow
the need for more revenue, the situation would be entirely changed.
USEFUL AS PROPAOANDA
Campaign propaganda in the pub-
citly drive could be based on atat-
iatica available in the financial
atatement, membera ot tbe campaign oommittee atate.
Tbe U.B.C. financial atatement

would like tbe privilege ot atudylng

better veraed In tbe affalra leading
up to tbe demand for additional
government aupport to tbe unlveralty.
CO-OPERATION   REQUESTED
An A.M.S. meeting might be
called to consider a motion aaklng
the Board ot Governors to co-operate with Studenta Council.
Feeling optimistic that the publicity drive will bring new government help ln the tall, council has
asked that the governors withhold
their fee Increase and registration
limitation until that time. Thia requeat haa already been once refused
but will be made anew.

This change has been made because it was considered advisable

AN IMPROVEMENT
A week ago in these columns we flayed the directorate
of Varsity Time for their slackness in allowing the program
to reach a low level in entertainment value. Wednesday night,
operating under a new policy, Varsity Time was improved
considerably.
It was a welcome improvement, and one that can be
carried still further. Naturally, the program could not swing
from being a complete failure to a success in one week. What
was presented to radio listeners Wednesday night, however,
was a program whose improvements over its predecessors
augurs well for the future of this flrst U.B.C. student radio
effort.
The music by Callum Thompson, the script by Jim Beveridge, and the direction of Struan Robertson are all to be
commended. May these workers continue to show a live and
useful interest in Varsity Time. Properly controlled and
produced, Varsity Time can be not only a credit to the university, but also of practical use in engendering favorable
public opinion regarding U.B.C.

Arthur Sager Reads
Paper on Communist
At Letters Club Meet
W. H. Auden, leader of the English Communistic poeta, waa the
subject ot the paper given by
Arthur Sager at the Letters Club
meeting on Tuesday evening at
the home ot Mr. and Mra. John
Ridington.
Sager Illustrated his paper by
reading examples ot the poet's
work . . . boisterous, satiric, obscure, and always vivid. In spite
of bis communistic views, W. H.
Auden recently was awarded the
King's Oold Medal for Poetry. He
is noted also for two dramatic
works, "The Dog Beneath the
Skin" and the London success,
"The Ascent of F6."
Application for membership In
the Letters Club should be addressed to the Secretary, Nora
Olbson .through the Arts Letter
Rack.
Paint Comes Off
Stadium Seats
The paint on the stadium seats
is  still  coming off.
Last fall Students' Council
thought it funny when a claim for
paint damage to clothes came up
before them. After sitting on
the seats themselves for a few
games, they found out that the
paint is far from fixed on the
boards.
"I got some on my suit the
other day, and we had better do
something about it," declared Lyall  Vine   Monday  night.

at Huron Lodge ln Kerrisdale.
Tbere, they plan to "awing lt" in
the conventional Barn Dance
manner to the tune of "Turkey-
in-the-Straw" and probably "The
Big Apple."
Monday evening Beta, Eta, and
Gamma Chaptera have arranged
an affair to take the form ot a
Valentine's danoe. All decorations will follow the usual heart
motif.
Wedneaday laat, lnveated ln the

THE  8TUDENT   PRINCE
CO MANY questionnaires have
flooded the campus during the
past six months, that we decided to
garner a few statistics from them
the other evening. After several
hours poring over a collection of
the—the Students' Council questionnaire, the N.C.C.U.S. questionnaire,
the statistics from the Registrar's
office, and a fow quizzes we had
perpetrated ourself on a small
scale, we were disturbed by a knock
on the door of our humble cell.
"Come in," we said, and a youth
about five feet eight inches in
height, one hundred and forty-four
pounds in weight, nineteen years of
age, and wearing a menacing frown
entered.
"I am the Average Student," he
announced.
We said we didn't believe it.
"I don't care a damn what you
believe," he declared heatedly. "I
juat dropped in to aay that I'm aick
of having people prying into my
private life."
We were a bit taken back, but we
auggeated he alt down and have a
cigarette while we talked thlnga
over.
He accepted one grudgingly.
"You'll have to flntah it for me,"
ho aaid gloomily. "I only amok*
one and four-sevenths cigarettes
per day, and I had the flrat one
today at tea."
The croaaed hla lege and we noticed a thin patch in the aole of
one ahoe (dark brown, brogue,
price $6.25).
"MOW about theae complaints of
yours," we began. "Isn't it
true that you are only Ave feet
seven point four inches tall, weigh
one-forty-four, spend $34.48 annually on suits, $4.76 on pyjamas, $3
a month on street car passes, have
had your tonsils removed, and will
marry at the age of twenty-
seven ? "
"Certainly, but is that any business of yours?" he demanded. "You
might also mention that I'm 87 per
cent. British, 4 per cent. American,
4 per cent. Japanese, 2 per cent.
Chinese, and 3 per cent, a mixture
of twenty-one other nationalitiea,
but what doea it all prove?"
"It'a your outlook on life we all
want to get at," we explained.
"What do you think about things
like—well, women and religion and
politics and marriage and beer—"
"The aame aa anybody elae, of
eourae," he replied. "That ia, I
never think about religion at all,
but I worry plenty about women.
"I might be interested in politica
if I had the time. Marriage doean't
intereat me at all, although prospective wives do. And beer . . .
well, I drink a surprisingly amall
amount compared to the way I talk
about it, but even then it ia about
Ave timea aa much as my parents
would ever suspect."
"AND what about the univera-
•**■ Ity?" w© aaked. "Was it a
disappointment? What are you
here for? And what do you think
of the social aet up?"
"It was a disappointment," he
admitted. "After all, only 23 per
cent, of me made a fraternity, you
know, and the other 77 per cent, ot
me seemed to think a fraternity
was next to oxygen as a necessity
of life. All the same I probably
had more fun being tragic at college, than I would have had being
contented in a business career.
"As for the social 'set-up,' I complain a good deal about the cost of
taking a woman to a formal dance
complete with stiff shirt, flowers,
auto transport, and a bite to eat
afterward, but I'd complain a lot
more if formal dances were abolished entirely."
"Speaking about social functions,
what would be the worst faux pas
imaginable, in your opinion?" we
asked.
"Wearing a black shirt with a
white tie," he answered without a
moment's hesitation.
"TYTHAT about the Average Co-
** ed," we said.  "Why didn't she
drop in, too, to complain?"
"I did phone her, but she was
out," the Average Student explained.   "You konw how it is ■with

occurrences    at    the    Barn    Dance
sponsored by the Faculty.   Much of
the evidence for the alleged crudity
and   roughness  of  Aggies   has  resulted from these annual parties.
Ungentlemanly behavior — to
be  generous  about  it—has  been
all   too   frequent,   and   such   displays of utter weakness as were
evidenced   at    last    year's   Barn
Dance   are   devastating   in   their
effect.
This writer does not wish to be
considered a prude or a wet blanket—certainly    his     last    thought
would   be  to  discourage  happiness
and fun  and general  hilarity;  for
University students, and most especially Aggies, have far too little of
the light side of life as it is.
It is for this very reason that
he considers it brutally selfish of
certain Agricultural students to
pursue a course which utterly
spoils the occasion for the large
majority.
Many entertaining and aincere
atudenta, perhaps even membera
of the faculty, have been forced
to stay away entirely from the
Barn Dance In the paat by th*
unaeemly and, we hope, unconsidered action of a distinct minority.
There is but one reaaon why thla
haa continued, year after year. No-
one has made any attempt to atop
it. It ia Joe'a auggeation that the
executive of the Agricultural Undergraduate Society take it upon
ita ahouldera to organise the function in auch' a way that no diaplaya
of unciviliaed conduct will be poa-
aible.
We demand that the Executive
conatltute a court for the disciplining and expulalon, if necessary, of offenders. Thla ia their
duty, and they muat be brought
to a realisation of their reaponal-
bllltiea. The lax attitude of paat
executive* can be tolerated no
longer. The situation haa become
steadily worae, and another demonstration of the notoriously tra-
ditional type will surely have
dire results.
A place in the Hall of Agricultural Fame waits for the Aggie
executive which can sponsor a decent and respectable party. Their
likenesses shall be hung next to
that of the great Rosalind, and
their memory shall likewise be
immortal.

Toronto Governor
Young Leader
Of   Dominion
Compliments Student
Editors   And
C.U.P. Service
By  W.  A.   NEVILLE
(Canadian  Unlveralty Preaa Staff
Writer)
TORONTO, Feb. 11. — It would
sem that the young men of Canada
have found a leader ln C. Oeorge
McCttllagh, 32-year-old publisher of
the Toronto Olobe and Mail, not so
much from the political point of
view, but as a young man, who,
having achieved remarkable success himself, believes in the ability
of young Canadians to guide the
destinies of their young country.
Mr. McCullagh stated that the
problem of young men today is to
strive for real national unity, to
be Canadians, not Albertans, or
Quebeckers, or sectionallsts.
The young president ot one ot
Canada's leading dailies is dynamic, a potent driving force in endeavoring to revitalize the life of
a country "which is the youngeat
in the League of Natlona, governed
by  the oldest men."
"The system in the economic
cycle haa been changing constantly," aald Mr. McCullagh, "everything about ua has been modernized
except the government! Present
leaders In government, for the moat
part, reeent the preaence ot young
men with young Ideaa in their
mldat. Yet tbe biggeat business
machine in the country Is archaic."
Perhapa, thlnka Mr. McCullagh,
a few egotistical and fearleaa
young Journaltata are needed to decry thla state of affairs.
Mr. McCullagh concura with what
would aeem to be a common opinion held by young Canadlana, tbat
Canada la over-governed.
The duplication ot work In federal and provincial governments, la
the preponderant set-up of federal,
provincial, county and municipal
Instrumenta of government leavea
little for the taxpayer, who, when
he becomes tax-conscious, will realize that economies must be effect-
ted ln government.
The young publisher, having himself successfully battled against the
"rotten brow-beating ot old wiseacres" is now tbe chief voice of
young Canadians who are fighting
for a fairer deal, a better chance to
prove their worth in their own
country.
Mr. McCullagh ls not a university graduate, but a governor of
the Unlveralty ot Toronto, he haa
a keen Intereat in unlveralty affaire and unlveralty men. On the
other hand, he doea not believe
that unlveralty la the only meana
of education.
Unfortunately, thlnka Mr. McCullagh, too many parenta are laboring under the popular theory that,
becauae they themaelvea did not
gain a unlveralty education, tbelr
children muat at all coata have one.
It haa reaulted in many young
people attending unlveralty who
ahould not be there, and many disgruntled graduatea, who believe
that a degree la an unemployment
Insurance policy. A man ahould
never attend unlveralty with that
idea ln mind.
Mr. McCullagh had nothing but
praiae for the newly-formed Canadian Unlveralty Preaa and remarked that college newspapers play an
important part in the life of any
university.
He emphasized the responsible
roles which college editors assume
in directing the thinking ot the
atudent body and in reflecting atudent opinion.

THE TOTEM EXPLAINED IN
WORDS OF ONE SYLLABLE
By  JIM   MACFARLANE
"What is the Totem?"
This colossal problem was posed
by a meek, mild freshman who
wandered Into the Pub office the
other day ln search of that elusive
thing generally known as "Totem
Appointment."
We looked, and wondered!
Totem has always signified to us
a kaleidoscopic vision of a gorgeous
hued volume which was bigger and
better each year,
and which gave
brighter and better pictures of student life and students ln general
and particular, ln
the various processes of motion,
position, and various occupations
of eating, arguing, playing, dancing, and fighting, all generally
known as the exuding of vim, vigor and vitality, or
otherwise.
However, such vague visions not
being sufficient for our freshman,
we collared our good friend Bdltor
Crawley In his hole in the wall .and
asked him to explain all about Totem.
By way ot broaching the subjeot
gently, we aaked, "What's new in
the Totem thla year, Mr. Crawley?"
"Practically everything," replied
Mr.  Crawley, with equal flneaae.
"Well, that'a fine," we responded, clioklng our denturea decisively, "but how . . ."
"WhyI" ahouted Bd. Crawley, letting hla feet fall with a thump from
deak to floor, "that Totem ot mine
ia going to be tbe blggeat thing
yet. It ia 800 pages of written,
photographloal, atuff of the campua and Ita people and Ita dolnga
and la faoultlea and Ita buildlnga."
SPINELESS SPECIMEN
"Llaten, you weak-kneed, apine-
leaa apecimen of an Bxohango Bdltor, your Canadian Unlveralty Preaa
wire aervice to Toronto and Montreal ia leaa than nothing aa a publicity medium aa compared to my
Totem," he acreamed aa he clutched our lapels and pushed us Into
aeveral corners.
"This year the Totem ia working
hand in glove, head under hat, and
foot   in   shoe,   with   the   Publicity
Committee in the stupendous task
of providing the public with a
means whereby they can form an
opinion of U.B.C," he continued
relentlessly.
SHOWS  ALL
"This Totem of mine is one of
the beBt publicity mediums on the
campus. It presents the students
at their moments of intense work,
quiet study, and relaxation. It
shows the faculty, (and what classes they take), as well as the students themselves.
"Inside of the two hundred odd
pages will be pages and pages telling about the various classes, clubs,
and sports, in fact about all the
extra-curricular activities of the
students, and It will show what
students take part ln them, and
how, and why. There will be lists
of members ot clubs and photographs of some of their meetings."
UTTER TRUTH
"And into the bargain," he declaimed with rapidly rising hysteria, "the Totem will tell about the
administration of the university,
and who are the governors, and the
senate. It will tell trom Council
to Senate the 'Truth' about U.B.C.
affairs."
"And also," as we began to edge
away from the bombardment, "as a
background to all thla there will be
pictures of all heads of departments, and aaaoclatea, and aaalat-
anta, together with aome building
photos which even you have never
seen before showing what studenta
have done tor tbe unlveralty ln
building a building or ao."
We eacaped. But we'll get our
Totem, If tbe family doean't get lt
nrat.

Russian Duchess' permanents leave your hair as soft as if it was naturally

HOCKEY
Hockey begin* again after a
short lay-off of a couple of weeks
wltl* the flying Thunderettes (otherwise known as the U.B.C. team)
meeting the Pro-Rec eleven at Connaught Park at exactly 2:16. All
players are asked to be on hand at
2 p.m.
The U.B.C. team still has hopes
of winning the Lower Mainland
Cup even though Britannia Grads
nosed them out 8-2 in their laat
match.  On March 19, the Co-eds,
as winners of their division in the
fall, meet the Grade, winners of
"A" Division, in the seml-flnals.
Top team after this tilt will tangle with  the league  leadera  of
this spring for the main cup. No
collegian outfit has ever carried
away the Lower Mainland championship since the league was Inaugurated in 1929.
One of the main reasons for the
excellent showing of the co-eds this
year is fullback Hortense Warne.
Hortense is recognised as the best
back in the city.   Ably supporting
her is Marjorie Lean in goal and
Betty  Cole  in  the  other  fullback
position. These three "Musketeers"
have proved a headache to many
opposing forwards—not to mention
their  own forwards who  have  to
face them in practices.

field, have accounted for many of
the quick passing attacks on the
opponent's goal, and incidently,
many on the goals. On the other
end of the forward line, Gerry Armstrong and Frances Mair, both fast,
tricky players, have combined well
to give the opposing defence many
an anxious moment.

THUNDERBIRDS
TAKE SECONDS
IN GRUDGE GO
The practically unstoppable drives of a brilliant Thunderbird back
division provided the power to stop
the plucky Second Team by an approximate score of 20-6 in the long-
awaited "Grudge" battle of tbe
Ruggers on Wednesday at the Stadium.
MePHEE  TALLIES
A fair crowd, whioh turned out
to   wltnea*  thla   muoh-publlelsed
fray, had only about 40 aeconda
to wait, to aee the treat they were
waiting for—a Thunderbird three
rug.     Snaring   a   kick   that   wa*
meant te find toueh Immediately
after klckoff, Ted McPhee etartad .
a aweeplng run which th* crowd
and   Second  Team   alike   merely
watched     In     amasement     until
Howl* McPhee grounded th* oval
for th* opanlng aeor*.
Two more tries were registered
against the bewildered Seconds before it became a different story for
a short period, when the Thunderbirds were penned ln their own defensive area and Fred Smith climaxed a nice three-quarter run by going over tor an unconverted try.
Soon after, however, by way ot
preventing any swelled-headedness
on the part ot the upstart Seconds,
Dave Carey got busy and started a
few more movements which brought
the Thunderbirds' score up to a total worthy of them.
SECONDS SCORE
A lone and disputed try by
John Runkla brought the Second
Team total to 6, which, aome
apectatora war* heard to remark,
waa creditable, but which the
afore-mentloned Second Team regarded aa definitely unaatlafylng.
Shrapnel . . . Johnny Bird only
got the ball once and, after he had
waded through about alx opponents,
had to go off with a recurrence of
an old knee injury. . . . Fred Smith
twice broke through the Thunderbird defensive system by the crash,
bash, and hope-for-the-best system
and was only hauled down after
nice gains. Ron Upward proved
what a going concern he is by carrying down four ot five tacklers attached to hla ankles every time he
placed his co|oaaal mitts about the
ball. . . . The terrifying grimaces
that Norm Stewart makes when he
Is on the rampage earn for him the
reputation of being a very effective
ball-carrier as well as the useful
and hard-working scrum man which
his performances this year have
shown  him   to be.
THUNDERBIRD PUCKSTERS
TO MEET HUSKIES HERE
Hockeyists Defeated Washington On Tour;
Trussel Is Back With Team
Soccermen  To
Meet Kerries
After a week's layoff on account
of the Mainland Cup-tie, Varsity
roundballers swing into action
again on Saturday, when they entertain Kerrisdale at McBride
Park.
With the league schedule more
or less on its last legs, the soccermen will have to make an improved
showing in their remaining games
if they hope to wrest themselves
from their present position, which
Is precariously close to the dreaded
cellar.
SOCCERITES  GRIM
Accordingly,   the   looka  on   the
faces of Charlie Hltohlns* chargee
bear   a   aomewhat   grim   aapect
theea daya, grim with the realization that Kerrisdale Juat have to
be    robbed    of    the    two    pointa
which   they   are   ao   confident   of
obtaining.     In  an  effort to   place
aa atrong an aggregation aa poaalble   in  the  field,   Manager   Norman    Free    la   aourrylng   around
with an eye to obtaining the services of Dan Quayle and poaalbly
alao Baall Roblnaon, who will not
be   required   on   the   rugger  field
thia   Saturday.
The   Inclusion  of   these   two   forwards  will considerably strengthen
the  campusmen, who,  it is predicted, will give the Kerries an anxious
90 minutes.
PUCKSTER
Jim Ussher, star left winger of
the Thunderbird hockey team,
who will be showing against
Washington when they come
here a week Saturday. Against
U.S.C. this year Jim proved his
worth by holding Benny Nivicki,
leading scorer for the Southern
Alberta senior league two years
ago, to one goal on two games.

With the first breath of spring
from the balmy southland somes
the news that the hard hitting Huskies from Washington are Jaunting

roost, in the return battle of tbe

WON ON TOUR
Smarting under the 8-0 whitewash hung on them by the Canadians in their recent tour, the Huskies are howling to the four winds
for vengeance and are determined
to get it when the match gets under way on Saturday, the 19th, at
the forum. However, these hockey
'Birds are fully recovered trom the
battering received at the hands ot
the Gqnpaga Bulldogs on the same
trip that saw the Huskies ao thoroughly trounced, and nothing but a
good old-fashioned Chinook win
slow the Blue and Gold down onoe
they start their forays against the
Washingtonlans.
With the return of Aggie Paul
Truaael, who aeema to have recovered from his recent accident In a
Chem. lab, the 'Birds will be at full
strength for the tilt. Orme Dier,
who is leading point-getter so far
this year will again be the key pin
on the attacking along with Jim
Ussher and Marcel Oulguet, who
have been going well both ways in
all the games. Defence duties will
again be handled by "veterans"
Carson Magulre .Jack Steveson and
