Council To Allow
S.C.M's. Secretary
Till End Of Year
Vine Advocates
Stern Treatment
One month ago, to use the words
of Lyall Vine, council "put Its foot"
into the question of the constitutionality of the S.C.M. paid secretary.
Monday  night. Vine  advised  his
fellow councillors to thrash the matter out and get It over with.
Taokling what one oounoil member oalled a "tlekllah matter," the
legllatore finally decided te allow
Bob Tillman, present S.C.M. men-
tor-wlth-aalary to atay en the oampua during the reet of the 1937.38
The decision, although unanimous, did not reflect the tenor of
the discussion that preceded it.
Several members of council, headed by Vine, felt that if the S.C.M.
was breaking the A.M.S. code, Intentionally or otherwise, they
should be given stern treatment.
There was no question of the
value of the S.C.M. as an organization. With one accord, council said
the S. C. M. was "doing a good
This, however, did not affect the
fact that, after a year of operating
against the A.M.S. code, the S.C.M.
submitted an amended constitution
that, If passed by council, would
sanction the employment of a secretary.
Council discussed the amendments, and rejected them, then relented to allow the S.C.M. to "carry
on as before until the end of the
SI,000 a year for a secretary, the
money collected from off-campus
sources, was the main bone of contention in the month-long negotiations.
Council, and the A.M.S, code, objects to any society raising money
from "down-towners" by subscription.
Also, a c c o r ding to Malcolm
Brown, the S. C. M.'s action practically moved the organization out
from under the wing of the A.M.S.,
a spot long coveted by some other
student groups, who feel that they
could get along better on their own,
with no financial responsibility to
Council added a rider to their decision, to the effect that if the S.
CM. in the future felt the need for
a part-time paid secretary, the
choice of the man should be made
from the U.B.C. campus, and his
appointment ratified by council, .

Professor T. Larsen, honorary
head of the class, spoke briefly on
the life of Dr. Wesbrook. "He made

Directs Film
Film Society executives Wednesday Inaugurated the second production unit to be formed on the campus this fall, when the Production
Committee for the documentary
film which is being made on the
campus held its flrst meeting ln
Arts 100.
Campus prototype of the Hollywood "big shot" will be Jim Beveridge, who will act as director.
Sub-committee heads will be:
Scenario, Graham Darling; Art and
Editing, Norman DePoe and Peggy
Thomson; "Shots," Dick Jarvis;
Document, Joyce Cooper.
Work of editing the film already
shot will start in the near future,
and   rushes   for   campus   showings
may be available ln a few weeks.
Plans are ready for covering the
Wesbrook Memorial Ceremony,
Homecoming, and the Fall Congregation. The shot committee is already making light tests for this
latter event.
It ls hoped that a film covering
every important phase of campus
activity will be ready for showing
after the New Year.

Many Delegates
Twenty-two representatives of
U.B.C. organizations met in the
Council Room at noon, Thursday,
to appoint committees in connection with the National University
Conference to be held in Winnipeg during the Christmas holidays.
Committee heads appointed to
take charge of divisions of Conference study are as follows: Alex
Charters,  Clarence  Idyll,  Alfred
Kitchen.   These committee heads
will   join   with   a   Continuation
Committee   composed   of   Fronla
Snyder,    Robert    Smith,    Helen
Crosby and Bob Tillman to form
a   Committee   for   Co-ordination,
which   will   obtain   speakers   to
address  university   audiences   on
Conference subjects. Jack Mercer
was appointed publicity manager.
A    delegation    committee,  which
will   appoint   B.C.   representatives
and   be   in   charge   of   finance   arrangements,    was    appointed    and
comprises the following:   Don Monroe, Kemp Edmonds, Jean Meredith,
Norah  Sibly  and  Brook  Anderson.
One faculty advisor will be obtained
by the committee.
"The Racial Situation" is the
subject that U.B.C. will concentrate
attention on, the meeting decided
and "B.C.'s Attitude to Secession"
will also be thoroughly discussed.
Organising of the first National
University Conference for the purpose of gaining a more unified student opinion on modern world
problems makes a step forward in
University history  in   Canada.
Originally suggested by the National Council of the S.C.M., the idea
has spread rapidly through all universities. National Conference committees representing a cross section
of university student opinion have
been formed and local committees
are being organized on every Canadian university campus.
Over 350 delegates, representing
the great majority of universities
from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, will gather In Winnipeg from
December 27 to 31.
Students' Council of U.B.C. has
endorsed the conference Idea, and
about 18 delegates from this university are expected to attend.
To achieve perspective, in spite of
geographic environment and cultural conditioning; to better understand a world In transition; to think
fundamentally, following through
to the underlying nature of youth
problems; to enlarge fellowship by
personal and social contacts with
students of other Canadian universities . . . these are the four
chief aims of the Conference.

- Editorial -
Premier Pattullo will be on the campus Wednesday afternoon. To watch him receiving an honorary LL.D. will be
many of the most influential men in our province.
On this group depends the future of our University;
for it is from Mr. Pattullo and  from these Influential
leaders that the means of expanding and improving the
University must come.
It is up to us, the students, to show them that we are
interested in our province, and in the men who are running
it.   It is up to us to show them that we are interested in the
men who are chosen to be signally honored by our University.
And, above all, it is up to us to show them that we are vitally
interested in the welfare of our university.
It has been suggested that all the students in the university gather in the quad to honor the Premier as the procession
moves from the Library to the Auditorium. The balcony of
the Auditorium is being held open for students, and a capacity turnout at the Congregation would make a very favorable
Students should give all their support to the arrangements which will be announced by David Carey at today's
Pep Meeting.    We have a good chance to impress the
Premier ... a chance that will not come so easily again".
If everyone goes home immediately after lectures, overcrowding will appear to be a false alarm.    If everyone stays
around, the necessity for better accommodation will be impressively apparent.

Australian Surprised
That Citizens Don't
Help University
"It Is a pity that so few wealthy
men In British Columbln have the
foresight to endow your University." said VV. C. O'Ueilly, Chief
Film Censor for the Commonwealth
of Australia, and Secretary to Wesley College of the University of
Sidney, to tlie Ubyssey, as he
walked around the University
grounds and buildings last Thursday.
"They cannot realize the value of
the university, nor can they see its
part in the life of the province and
the country. It is easy to see, too,"
he added, "that your university will
suffer if it Is not allowed to expand
and develop, and it should be Just
as clear to the average person that
the country will suffer if the university suffers."
"Now the University of Sidney
has only been of real use to Australia since lt received endowments,
such as the $2,000,000 the Medical
Faculty was given by one generous
minded  citizen,'  said   Mr.   O'Reilly.
He went on to say, "This department of the university was able to
build with the money from the endowment, and can now develop with
its ordinary income of fees and so
on. All ready the dividends from
this investment are apparent, in
the form of constructive ideas and
highly skilled work being poured
Into the country today by the graduates."
RICH   MEN   IN   B.   C?
Mr. O'Reilly, who ls returning to
Australia after an eight months'
trip to England, and who emphasized that he recently attended an
Oxford Group House-party at Niagara Falls, asked, "There are some
rich men in B. c„ I suppose?"
Startled at the response that there
are quite a number of very wealthy
men in the province, he wondered
at the fact that the government
was almost the sole contributor to
the modest coffers of the University.
"As I see it,' 'he said, "a university should be the real source of
leadership ln a nation, but lt ls Impossible for lt to produce appreciable dividends ln a country if so
few people are willing to invest In
"A growing university is not a
'white elephant because it needs
money; it must have money to
grow. An endowment to a university is not a raw gift; it is the
soundest  of  investments.'
Going to the new Stadium, and
from there to the Gymnasium, Mr.
O'Reilly was astounted at the story
of the construction of these two
buildings, but he at once pointed out
that here was the best example of
the spirit that characterizes a real
"These buildings are as fine an
instance of 'esprit de corps' as I
have'seen," he said, "a perfect demonstration that you rather penurious students are willing to sacrifice
to invest ln and improve your University.'
Waxing quite enthusiastic, Mr.
O'Reilly carried on, "It was that
sort of thing that built Canada, and
made her what she is today."
"Men with vision and unselfishness threw themselves and all they
possessed, physical, mental, spiritual, and material, into the task of
pioneering  a young  country.
"People have got to give again
today, if Canada, B. C, or your university are to fulfill their true destiny."
A secretary to one of the college?"
at the University of Sidney, Mr.
O'Reilly told, to illustrate his point,
how he had recently received the
news that his college had Just been
given some $60,000 to aid In expansion and to raise the standard
of living and working conditions
throughout   the   college.
As he got Into his car to leave,
the noted Australian turned his
head and with a twinkle ln his eye,
"If in Sidney, Australia, why not
in Vancouver,  Canada."
Large Assembly
Premier T. D. Pattullo will
be honored by the university
Wednesday afternoon at the
Fall Congregation when he
will receive an LL.D. degree.
The colorful ceremony of
awarding an honorary degree,
seldom enacted on the campus,
will be the highlight of the
winter university term.
A number of degrees will
be awarded at the Congregation, before a large assembly
of students and visitors who
will crowd into the university
Plans now under way for a special student reception for the Premier will be outlined at a noon hour
meeting ln the auditorium today,
by  A.M.S.   president,   Dave   Carey.
Following the ceremonies Wednesday, a tea and reception for the
university's newest graduate will be
held in the gymnasium.
Premier Pattullo will be the Congregation speaker, acting in that
capacity for the second time since
he went into offlce several years
Public Speaking Offer
Rejected By Council
Students' Council Monday night
decided that it would not allow the
L.S.E. to enter Into any agreement
with R. J. Smyth, who wants to
conduct public speaking classes on
the campus.
Such classes, where students
would have to pay for instruction,
should be arranged by the university administration, if they are necessary, council felt.
All medical examinations must
be finished by November 1. Will
all new students who have not
had their examinations, or have
not received an appointment
time, please report to the Health
Service Offlce as soon as possible.
Also all graduates who have
not had a medical examination
at this University since 1932,
please report.
AMS. treasurer Bob Smith became the centre of a violent storm
in council Monday evening as the
1937-38 budgets were put under Are
by his colleagues.
Main objections to the finance
plans came, as usual, from the L.
S.B. representative, this year Malcolm  Brown.
In what ex-treasurer Vine termed
an "unsual speech," Brown flayed
Smith and the council In general
for spending so much on athletics.
"We're being crowded out,' declared Brown, referring to expenditures  for  the  L.S.E.
J527 for L.S.E. was the budget,
and it passed without additions.
As junior member Brynelsen artistically arranged a cellophane bow
in Vine's hair, and W.U.S. prexy
Peggy Fox tried in vain to speed
proceedings so that she could keep
some pre - arranged appointment,
council continued to consider budgets.
Jean Meredith said the women's
basketball appropriation was "a big
gyp." Vine insisted on more money
for men's awards, and no objections were heard when the Totem
budget was read out, slashed to exactly half of previous years.
Budgets were passed, with "strict
financing" the rule. Council will
run close to the line this year, placing its hope on athletics to bolster
what might be an unbalanced budget.

Random Ramblings
In 1933 the University reported that It was overcrowded
and required more facilities to handle the overflow of stud-
Four years have passed.    Still no action has been taken.
Today more than 2200 students are paying fees to an
institution designed to serve 1500.
Two days ago the City Jail and Oakalla Penitentiary reported that they also were overcrowded, due to the arrest of
three hundred single unemployed whose only crime was that
of strenuously objecting to starving in a prosperous city.
Within a few hours the Government announced that a
new prison camp would be erected to accommodate all unemployed who chose to defy the law.
The situation would be ludicrous if It were not so tragic.
The spectacle of a government that will spare no expense
in enforcing the letter of the law in dealing with hungry,
baffled men is not a pretty one.
The injustice of the expenditure becomes especially apparent when one remembers that the offenders are not solely
responsible for their present condition and frame of mind. A
satisfactory works program by either the Federal or Provincial governments would have saved most of them from the
necessity of "tin canning," which appears to be their chief
But when the money spent on punishing these men is
money that is urgently needed to build schools, hospitals, and
university additions, the "irony" or the situation becomes
No real obstacle to the construction of a wing of the proposed Brock Memorial Union Building has been put forward
since the idea was first mentioned in the Ubyssey a week ago.
That does not say that no consideration has been given
the matter. Students in all walks of campus life have discussed the proposition, and bear us out in declaring that the
need for more room for extra-curricular activity is an urgent
one. ,
As already stated, $41,000 has been raised for the Union
Building. This money was raised two years ago, when the
academic life of the university was not suffering so much
from overcrowding as it is now. Today, any new campaign
should be one for new buildings. This, however, is not for
students to worry about, it is a problem for our university
and governmental authorities.
The $41,000 is ear-marked. It must be used for the Union
Building at some time. There is no better time than now,
when erection of a student building would be a powerful incentive to others to proceed with needed construction of academic facilities.
There can be no suggestion that the building of the Union
might discourage government or private interests from
assisting the university in other things. It is not as if the
$41,000 had been raised yesterday. It is there, a legacy from
classes of other years, a legacy to be used for one purpose.
Those students who gathered in the spring of 1936, and
voted for a loan of $10,000 to bring the students' share in the
Union Building campaign up to the sum previously set, must
be wondering today why that money is not being utilized for
the purpose for which it was intended.
Members of the Alma Mater Society will not wait much
longer for council to make some move on this matter. Even
a flat rejection of the scheme would at least demonstrate that
our councillors have the ability to take some sort of action.
And it is action that the students want from their council. Action on this and other important questions. It took a
month for council to make up its mind on the S.C.M. question.
It is taking a long time for the committee on overcrowding
to get under way. The only matter that our council seems
to be willing to act upon is its own early adjournment each
Monday evening.

Sanctioned Gambling
To Raile Money For
Winnipeg Charity
WINNIPEG, Oct. 22 (WIPU) —
Official approval to gambling was
given by authorities at the University of Manitoba when a charity
dance was held recently at the
Fort Oarry  site of  the  University.
Admission to the dance was a
toss up between the students and
the doorman in charge, and as each
student arrived the doorman flipped
a coin to decide whether the student would pay double or nothing.
The dance was held to raise
funds for the Winnipeg Community
Chest, which is at the present time
holding Its annual drive.
Three ballrooms were used to accommodate all the "gamblers" who
had come to pit thetr skill against
that of the doorman.
In the largest was an orchestra
which played waltzes only; ln the
other two was an orchestra which
played fox-trots only, and one which
majored  in  awing  music.

The Exchange Editor
In Friday's issue we made aome
vague and general subversive propagandist's remarks against the S.
C. M„ to wit, the possibility ot its
becoming engaged in unfavorable
controversies, rumours and accusa-
tions of the past, and tha general
possibility of other and sundry criticisms which might be levelled at
any organization.
Now, having been Introduced to
some evidences of the private life
of this organization, we find It
necessary to preface these statements. These evidences, the chief
reason of our pseudo-apology, are:
"The Mastery of Sex," by Leslie D.
Weatherhead; "The Coming Revolution," by A. Fenner Brookwayj
"The Meaning of Marx," edited by
Sidney Hookj "The Report of Stalin
to the 17th Party Congress," published in Vancouver by Friends of
the Soviet Union; "Wage-Labor and
Capitalism," by Karl Marx; "The
Secret International," and "Youth's
Eye View of Some Problems Connected with Getting Married."
The volumes are esconced on the
bookshelves of the S.C.M. clubroom,
together with sundry tracts concerning the Life of Christ, etc., and
are surely evidences of an inquiring
mind, and a desire to follow in the
footsteps of the Master.
.'hey make us feel that our puny
efforts at persuading people to raise
Union Buildings and new library
wings are as nought when compared to the endeavours of the S.
CM. to inculcate into the minds of
its 120 or more members the Ideal
that all men are created equal, and
to spread knowledge as to the successes and errors of a system which
some 10 days ago was rejected as
being wrong In principle, because
of Its coercive measures, by the
General Synod of the Church of
England in Canada.
But of course we realize that the
S.C.M. is just a general Student's
Christian Union, with no particular
Episcopalian connection, and that it
exists for the propagation of an
open-minded realization ot the
Christian life on this campus
through a knowledge of all things
general and  particular.
The faot that auoh combustible
material exleta upon their bookshelves haa not yet oooaaloned
any dlaturblng ripple upon the
face of our aerene and unlnter-
rupteed dlreotlonleee hunt for the
elusive god knowledge, whoae
character and whereabouta no
one teems to know, Is no oredit
to the S.C.M., but rather an Indication that John College ie too
buay with other things.
But the S.C.M. is carrying on a
courageous program, no doubt ln
assistance of the overcrowding situation which does not permit the
economics department to give half
the courses in political economy
that it should.
With ita Trans-Canada organisation and its paid secretary it ought
to accomplish much.
Providing that the organisation
does not deviate from its objective
course and become subjective
enough to clash with the vested
interests which control the fate of
this university, we shall, or should,
have a goodly number of pink-faced
cherubs pacing our halls idealising,
and doing their best to have a better house than Jack built, while
their leaders ln the east scheme
violently about peace campaigns
and missions to the Chinese,
Perhaps Mary Jane may dream
pleasurably of the days when she
will put little Johnny in the nursery
and go out to overcrowd the already
swamped labor market.
Perhaps the 120 good ones will
achieve heaven by studying; the condition of Christian affairs throughout the world, while those around
them fight for better conditions for
students in the immediate vicinity.
Perhaps by the time they graduate they wtll have learned from
Karl Marx that co-operation ls a
great thing. And this, ln time, they
will tell to little Johnny who will
come to Varsity a few years hence
and plunge Into SC.M. affairs eager
to partake of the pleasure of backing Peace Movements whioh are
smiled at by Ottawa, and of taking
part in ideal discussions of international  political  ecenomy  and re-
(Continued From Page 1)
An amazingly low figure for.expenses should allow for a large attendance. A transportation pool
will be formed, setting the general
fare for all delegates at 940. Billeting in Winnipeg homes will eliminate hotel expenses so that the total
cost, including registration fees,
will be less than $50.
Outstanding     speakers     have
consented to attend the National
Conference, among whom are Dr.
Reinbold Niebuhr, one of America's  most   provocative  thinkers;
Walter   Kotschnig,   formerly   of
Geneva, now Professor of International History at Mount Holy-
oke;  Dean  Carpenter, of Exeter
Cathedral, England; and Dr. Cassidy, British Columbia social educationalist.
The   advice   and   enthusiasm   of
these   men  will   be  welcomed,   but
the  actual  leadership  of the  Conference will be entirely in the hands
of the students.
For greater efficiency at the National Conference the discussions
will be organized under five distinct
heads, namely; National and International Relations, Economic and
Industrial Problems, Racial Issues,
Educational Difficulties and the
Role of Organized Religion.
On each of these questions B.
C. delegates are expected to have
some definite views. In order that
this   may   be   possible   Intensive
study   will   be  required   and  the
co-operation of a  large part of
the student body will be essential
It  Is  also   expected  that  U.B.C.
delegates will be asked to give their
views on the Oriental question.

Ugious ideals which have little or
no effect upon the student body as
a whole.
Perhaps, however, the miracle
may happen, and little Johnny (and
we hope his parents before him)
may discover that the S CM. could
do much more by becoming an integral part of the A.M.S. under
council and helping to do such
things for this campus as getting
better educational facilities, organizing frosh welcomes, and backing
a hundred and one educational and
social organizations, such as the
Film Society, Prof. Ira Dllworth's
struggle for a chair of Music, and
a fully developed Students' Union
with a full sized building attached.
In some small ways the S.C.M.
has been very slightly interested in
some of these things . . . that is,
evidently as much as their affiliation and apparent subordination to
the seemingly more important matters put forward by what we call
"the   General   Staff  at   H Q."
We rather imagine that If the S.
CM. reverses Its present position,
forget outside situations which it
can affect little, and instead expend
Its copious energies on the matters
of this moment and this campus it
will And the eastern part of Its organization as water unto its wine,
and Karl Marx and the Mastery of
Sex as a pile of pebbles alongside
the  living Image.
Perhaps the many whom we
know may consider the S.C.M. a
worthwhile organization and worthy
of a $1000 per annum secretary . . .
if the 120 good ones still see flt
"to pass by on the other side of
the road."
Perhaps then student support
will be sufficiently strong to make
unnecessary that downtown support
which seems so Important at present.

Redgwlck  lay   dead.     And   down

of  the   gridiron   went   still   farther
along the  dark passage,  with  that
intrepid   look   which   so   characterized his every act.
He did not see the long blaok

doorway and failed to notloe the
sinister figure whieh seemed to
flit like a long blaok shadow
aoress the lighted area under the

Meanwhile Oscar Scrlbblewell,
dogged by the indefatigable Ham-
bury, had reached Redgwick's office. The innocent old man whose
white hairs commauded respect
from even the most callow of freshmen was slumped now, as If tired.
"Hambury, this Is fiendish! We
must never rest until the murderer
of Redgwlck has been brought to
book for this revolting act!"
"But   who   could   have   done   It?
Everyone  loved  Dr.  Redgwlck."
Scrlbblewell set to work, examining minutely everything in the
room, starting with the Gainsborough reproduction, and ending with
the bottom drawer ot the desk. It
was here that he made his great
discovery. As he pulled the drawer
open, out tell three students.
"Heavens, Scrlbblewell, how did
they get hero?" asked the mystified
I-ambury, whose deductive powers
were low owing to his life among
the   simple   natives   of   Heta   Ksl.
"Elementary, Hambury," breathed Scrlbblewell. "There were not
enough seats in the Library. They
came here to study."
Hambury was awed by the simple
ami lucid explanation which Scrlbblewell gave from the depths of his
experience with Chang Suey. He
stood aside while the Ubyssey
sleuth examined the prostrate form
of Redgwlck.
Just then the form stirred. Redgwlck sat up, and Immediately put
his hands to his head.
"Boy, what a night!" The doctor subsided with a low moan, and
reached for -the Alka-Seltzer tablets which were never very far
from his hand. After swallowing 11
of these In rapid succession, he
turned to the sleuths.
"Well, sonny," he said, chucking
Scrlbblewell under the chin', "what
do you want?   Eh?
Covered with eonfualon, they
left. Chang Suoy had done this
to keep them there while more Insidious deeds were being perpetrated elsewhere. They ruahed
from the building, and Ignoring
the strange beared figure whieh
paeed majestically from the Library, went dlreotly to the underground ohamber of the Nine.
All was confUBion. News had
just come that sap Boberts was
missing! Vyle Line was moaning.

got his  strip  out."

"I knew we should have appointed that overcrowding committee,"
he said apprehensively, "Anyway,
if you chaps had taken my advice
about a different way of looking at
things, this might not have happened." And he muttered something
about Absolute Untruth, Absolute
Impurity and Absolute Dishonesty.
"But   we    must   do   something,"
said Hambury. "The big game ls

That Varaity will be right in the

a personage than Doc. Montgomery.
In an informal talk -with a group of
gym loungers the former Senior
"A" coach gave as reasons for his
convictions the facts that the studes
have daily access to a gym, with the
result that they are always in fine
condition, and also that they have a

substitution and keep the team

stars as Bardsley, Wllloughby,
Ross and Hudson should be the

The    Canadian    footballers    are
either working under some sort of
five year plan or they are letting
the eight ball run interference for
them,   for   the   records   show   that
they have yet to register a win in
five years of trying. From the days
when 40-0 scores were good excuses
for parties to the present season of
heartbreak, old lady luck has done
nothing but sneer at the boys.
Things seemed to be going to
be different at the start of this
season, what with a multitude of
material and spirit to burn, but
two heartbreaking defeats and an
artistic   drubbing   have   enabled
the footballers to keep their record   clean.    However   Alberta   is
coming and we are willing to bet
a plugged nickle to a copy of the
Ubyssey that Varsity either loses
by one or two points or wallops
them   by    about   fifteen   points.
Things can't go on like this forever.   It ain't justice.

We have just been informed that
the University is going to try to
get an entry for the Ice hockey
team in the local senior league this
year. This is really welcome news,
as hockey has been in the doldrums
for many a year on the campus, and
after all it's supposed to be our
national game.
However much as we. would
like to see this loop go through
we would like to know what happened to the plan to have either
an inter-colleglate schedule with
the universities to the south or to
make a tour of the California colleges who are interested in the
sport. This last suggestion seems
very feasible, as the teams down
there, especially the University
of Southern California, have been
importing stars from the prairies
and the game haa been really
packing in the customers.

one of the reasons for Varsity
winning the Dominion Championship 'last year, and who is
teamed up with Ken "Hooker"
Wright in the forward slots on
this year's squad. You will hear
a lot more about this little lad

Ruggers   Hope
To   Hit^ Stride
Thunderbirds, Blacks
To Meet Saturday
With only one win in three starts
the Varsity rugby team will be
fighting with their backs to the
wall in an attempt to get back in
the league flght when they tangle
with their perrenial rivals, the All-
Blacks, at the Oval on Saturday
For the past three years It has
always   been   the   North   Shore
boys and the Thunderbirds who
have  provided  the chief  contention for the Miller and McKechnie
cups, but this year they have both
been having difficulty getting into
the win column.
It is possible that Harry Lumsden, a star of last year's "Wonder
Team," will be back in action and
if he returns he may be the spark
that  will   start  the  studes  on  the
victory trail again.
Tin Gods to Widen
Stadium Footplates
Students' Council Monday night
decided to spend up to $250 on
widening footplates of the stadium
bleachers. At the safne time Council decided not to proceed with
erection of "standing room stands"
on the far side of the stadium. Also
vetoed was the proposal of awnings for the grandstand to protect
spectators from the weather.
New goalposts for the stadium
playing field will be erected, for not
more than $20. M.A.A. Rep. Vine
produced a piece of rotten wood before Council to stress the need for
removing the old posts. The wood
was taken from the present posts
and, according to forestry expert
Vine, was "plenty rotten."
' Owing to the extremely crowded
conditions experienced at the last
meeting of the Varsity Badminton
Club, prospective members are requested to pay their fees Immediately to Mr. Home or be excluded

Secret conclaves of the three
coaches and strenuous sessions at
jerks and practices are strictly in
order these days aa the opening of
the women's basketball league races
As anticipated, "Doc" Montgomery entered three teams in
the city league: Senior A and B,
and Intermediate A. Great things
are expected from the Senior A's,
while the Senior B's will likely
be experimenters only with the
"trucks" In this strange division.
Back in the fold are several of
last year's stars. Ena Clarke, who
turns in a grand performance at
guard, and incidentally happens to
be the most graceful player in the
league, is still ranging her accustomed territory. Helping her will
be Jean Thompson and Wanda
Shadforth, newcomers here, but old-
timers at ye sport of getting the
leather through hemp.
At the centre position will again
be Lois McEwen (known as Corks),
a consistently good player. Forwards are Laura Nixon, who has
several seasons of stellar performances for Varsity behind her; Dot
Yelland, a former star; and the
Freshette And, Virginia Poole. Vir
ginla will alternate with Lois at
centre. The remaining three positions are as yet not filled.
With a trip to Regina as an incentive, the girls really mean to
"go to town." Spencers, Fort Garry
and Cunninghams might have something to say about that. Anyway,
the race starts the flrst of November. —M. NEVISON.

unstated  quantity.
