Bennett Greater Statesman
Than King, Forum Decides
Debating before the largest meeting of the Parliamentary
Forum for at least a year, Peter Disney, upholding the affirmative side of the regular semi-monthly subject for discussion,
proved to the satisfaction of his judges that "Prime Minister R.
B. Bennett is a greater statesman than McKenzie King."
Debating against Alvin Rosenbaum, ^>'
Disney chose his arguments with care
and spoke in powerful tones apparently backed by conviction.
The arguments he chose included
the following: (1) Bennett instituted
legislation which ensures an 8-hour
day for labour, a 40-hour week and
one day of vest in each week; (2) instituted a policy oi unemployment insurance and the price spreads commission; (3) protection for agriculturists, (4) helped to stabilize economic condition;!, (5) improved transportation facilities in the Dominion,
and (6» furthered the development of
Empire trade.
Rosenbaum in hia arguments, spoke
mainly in rebuttal, pointing out the
things that Prime Minister Bennett
had failed to. do, rather than the
things that McKenzie King had successfully ; v'complished. He laid especial emphasis on the fact that Mr.
Bennett in 1930 declared that he would
end unemployment, whereas today
there are four times as many unemployed as there- were in 1930.
U.B.C. Should Work
With City Museum
Mr. D. Jenness, well known anthropologist who arrived here from Ottawa recentlv to investigate Indian
burial motma. on Vancouver Island,
expressed tha opinion that much
would be gained by co-operation between civic and University officials
in connection with the City Museum.
If professors of varous departments
such as mlneroiogy and geology were
made curators r.f these departments
in the City muieum as at the Royal
Ontario Museum, it would be possible
for us, in the opinion of Mr. Jenness,
to have the best museum on the Pacific coast.
Mr. Jenness assumed that the new
museum would be within easy access
of the University in order that it
might be used as a laboratory for the
furtherance of  university studies.
This arrangement would in no way
prevent the public from using the
museum as facilities would be provided for any person who wished to
study there.
The scheme has worked extremely
well at the Royal Ontario Museum
which adjoins the University of Tor.
onto campus and professors who are
curators have offices in the Museum
building, Mr. Jenness said. Financial
support is given by the city but the
curators are solely responsible for
their  different  departments.
Mr. Williams, head of tha Public
Relations Board, says that in his opinion the proposal is an excellent idea.
"It is a good thing that the suggestion
came from Mr. Jenness instead of
from a University professor as there
is a great deal cf jealousy of the University downtown and a great deal of
opposition to thp idea will doubtless
arise," he added.

PLANS READY Council Demands Reduction
FOR B. C TOUR! |n "Ubyssey" Expenditures
Suggests Additional   Advertising*
More Circulation As Sure Remedy
"Canadian Rugby receives enough
support from 'he students at Western
to pay for the upkeep expense on our
stadium," John Jenkins, exchange
student from rhe University of Western Ontario, told me, in an interview
Athletes at Western are trained in
a compulsory rhysical education class
during the freshman and sophomore
years. A two-hour course is given
each week with one unit credit. Every
student at the university pays a yearly fee of |11 to pay for the equipment
and instruction in connection with
physical recreation.
"We play inter-collegiate rugby
with Queens, McGill and Toronto
during the short season before the
weather gets cold," Jenkins added.
"We don't, however, cross the line
to try the American game."
"I feel right at home here at U.B.C.
Everybody does his best to help me
get into the swing of things. After
all, there is really very little difference between the two universities,
cur ^.juot affairs being run in much
the same way is they are here," Jenkins explained.
Taking a hard, twenty-unit course
in Physics, Chemistry and Maths.,
Jenkins is not taking advantage of
his position as an exchange student.
He has picked a hard year's work
for himself and in addition is going
to try tc play some soccer a.s well.
Student government at Western is
modeled on different lines from that
at U.B.C. Western has two executive
bodies, a Students' Council and a
Students' Administrative Assembly.
The latter body is composed of the
various class executives and has the
most authority.
A weekly newspaper, the "Gazette",
is published by the students. The
paper is pai :1 for in' the Student
Council fees, but ultimately pays its
own way by i.dvertising. The actual
cost to the students is one dollar,
Politics is '.fken seriously at Western. Three of the major parties have
student clubs. The Laurier Club and
the McDonald-Cartier Club have
large memberships. When the editor of the ''Grzette' 'attempted to
call down the Prime Minister in a
sarcastic editorial several years ago,
pressure from the student Liberals
forced him to send the government
an apology.
Asked what ho though of the style
of dress on our campus, Jenkins noted
that green was the predominant color,
Initiation at Western has been modified during tlm past few years and
the older, rougher things like parades
and frosh-soph f.'ghts have been discontinued.
"There are nearly one thousand students at Western," he continued,
"with so many interested in Dramatics that two clubs have been established. The Players Club is a Junior
organization, while the Players
Guild is harder to get into. The latter has a restricted membership and
trains students in all branches of
dramatic art."
The University of Western Ontario
is, like U.B.C, a young college. It is
only twenty years old, but has already established one of the best medical schools in Canada. A theological
college also operates in connection
with the university.
Extension  Lectures   Will  Be
Given by U. B. C.
A sum of Sod.OOO has been appropriated by the Senate from the Carnegie Grant of iust year for the put-
pose of extra-tcssional, education. Although certain difficulties have yet
to be overcome, preliminary plans
have been completed, according lo Dr.
O. J. Todd, secretary of the Adult
Education Committee.
This brings to fruition an ideal
long in the minds of certain of the
faculty, and one which public opinion backs up. Tho ideas were worked
into a preliminary report by Dr.
Todd, Dean F. M. Clement, and Dr.
H. V. Warren. The plan was then
submitted to Senate Committee,
whose recommendations were adopted by the governing boards.
It is hoped thai this year's program
which is a temporary measure, will
be followed by r. permanent department, with it3 own director.
For the purpose of facilitating work
the province has been divided into
several main areas. Vancouver Island will be o:ie of these. Here Prof,
H. F. Angus will lecture economics.
Psychology and Philosophy will be
taught by Dr. II. T. J. Coleman, and
Dr. J. W. Pilcher, the latter probably after lectures close in April.
Prof. Warren v/ill give courses in
The Okanagan district will be another centre, with courses in history,
psychology, sociology and agriculture.
In the Kotenay district, a simila.'
series of courses is planned.
Revelstoke, Kamloops, and Chilli •
wack form tho basis for another area
with courses in history, physics
chemistry, and English.
The Fraser Valley will be the centre for agricultural lectures.  An ex
tensive  series  of  courses  is  planned
for this area.
"There is an awakened interest in
adult education all over the province. Calls for nciult education remai.i
bigger than we can attempt to satisfy." said Dr. Todd in an interview
"It is most gratifying to see such an
interest in the U. B. C. throughout
the province, f.nd we hope that wo
can be of service to thc people oi
the province."
"Readjustments  of    various    kind,
are to be made in the different dep
artments to tak ? care of the needs jf
L. S. E. President
Jay Gould
Who, at Monday night's Council
meeting opened the discussion on
"Ubyssey" finances — a discussion
which occupied the attention of Council members for some time, although
no definite action was taken.
Sciencemen, Frosh, and Sophs were
given their first opportunity to indulge in protracted vocal contests together Friday, in the first pep meeting of the fall term.
Les Davis and his Columbians supplied the music, which was interspersed with Vf.isity songs and yells.
After considerable delay, the English
rugby club was induced to appear.
Members of the team were introduced by Capliin Harry Pearson, and
a short talk was given bv Coach
It has been announced that the next
pep fixture will be Thursday noon,
when the class of '39 will submit
their "Follies Freshaires" for the approval of the student body.
The freshmen have built up an orchestra from their own class and are
rehearsing steadily. No announcement
about the program has been made.

The following quotations were taken from the siguments of Student
Council Members on Monday night,
when the matter of reduced expenditures for publication of "The Ubyssey" was discussed at considerable

Scientific Executives:
"It is quite time that the over-hi^h

Ralph  Killam,    Junior    Member  of
"The Ubyssey" is all right, but tin
students at the University have not
been supporting the advertisers as
much as they m.'ght. We must make
every effort to promote the college
paper as a first-class advertising me-
dium, by supporting our advertisers
and having their satisfaction to use
as a selling card for more advertisements."
Bernard  Brynelsen,  President of A.
M. S.:
"Why can't "The Ubyssey" be made
to pay its own way, Other college
publications do not cost the student
body a cent. If that could be managed at U. B. C, then the whole
saving could naturally be transferred to other expense accounts, and
every club and society on the campus
would  immediately benefit."
Ardy Beaumont, President of Women's Undergraduate Society:
"I agree with the president. Thetv?
are innumerable things that might be
clone on the campus to build up th;
University. All that is needed is the
money, and it stems to me that "Tho
Ubyssey" might be able to supply
a part of that money under favorable
circumstances. More advertising is
certainly needed."
Molly Locke, President of Women's
Athletic Association:
"I think that circulation amongst
the alumni should be increased. Members of faculty and alumni have a
greater purchasing power than the
average student, and accordingly, if
more professors and alumni could be
persuaded to subscribe to the paper,
the value of "Ubyssey advertising
would undoubtedly be increased.
Darrel Gomery, Secretary of the Alma Mater Society:
"The Ubyssey" is a good paper, and
the whole student body likes to have
it published although it is certainly not worth what it costs. On no account should publication be suspended, but every effort should be made
to reduce the annual expense, which
is a heavy burden on the students."
John Harrison,   President   of Men's
Athletic Association:
"It might be feasible to send at
least one issue to every graduate of
the University who resides in the
province in an effort to increase circulation. Increased advertising would
likely also mean a larger paper."
Clarence Idyll, Treasurer:
"The Ubyssey" cost each student
about $1.25 last year, and although
the paper is interesting, that is obviously far too much.
If the students would patronize the
present advertisers an increase in advertising space would immediately
follow from other progressive business men who would realize the benefits of advertising in the college
paper. We must bend every effort to
making "The Ubyssey" self-supporting."
But No Detailed
Plan Summitted
Charging that the operating expenses of "The Ubyssey" are exhorbitant
Council at its meeting last night,
suggested that increased advertising
and a larger circulation was needed
to keep these expenses within reasonable bound.i.
Jay Gould, president of the Literary and Scientific Executive, declared
that it was "quite time th^t the overhigh expenditures for the publication
of the university paper should be reduced."
A lively and diversified debate followed in which ;dl members of council took an active part. Ubyssey finances were discussed at considerable
length and many suggestions were offered to improve the situation. If
Ubyssey expendes can be lowered
council intends to use the additional
funds to increase grants for other
campus organizations.
It wis pointed out that other college publications manage to pay their
own way, so there is no reason why
the Ubyssey rhould not do likewise.
In order to gain this end, the Ubyssey
advertisers m'.'st be shown that their
advertisements are bringing in results.
Increased circulation would mean
more advertuen'ents, council decided
and suggested that a drive to get
more alumni subscriptions be started.
John Harrison, Athletic President,
suggested that a copy of the Ubyssey
be sent to every eradaute who resides
in B.C. in order to stir up graduate
The matter was finally tabled for
future discussion.
Longer Noon Hours
It was announced that the one and
a half hour noon intermission has
been approved by the faculty committee on student affairs. This ruling is
subject to approval from the Senate.
A report on Student Co-operative
houses was submitted by Norman Depoe who was appointed by the Alma
Mater Society last spring to investigate the possibilities of such a scheme.
Council greeted plan favorably but
decided not information had been collected. This report will be presented
to the student body at thc Alma Mater  meeting tomorrow noon.
It was decided to hold Alumni Day
on November 9. The program will
include a Varsity vs. Occasional game
which will be played on the stadium
provided it doesn't rain. This will
be the first rmd only game played
on the stadium this year.
Home coming week will take place
in February in conjunction with the
twenty fitfh anniversary of the University.
The budgets of all the campus organizations were submitted by the
treasurer and passed by council.
The budget lor the Frosh smoker
will be $100. The large amount was
decided upon in order to make up to
the Frosh the lack of other initiations.. A rinj? will be built for
wrestling and toxing.
Council considered insuring the
Alma Mater Society safe against burglary.
At the request of the Students' Council, lectures will be
cancelled from 1:00 to 2:00

When Students' Council last night repeatedly deplored the fact that the Ubyssey was
costing the Alma Mater Society more money
than it was worth, we took rather a severe
And yet, if the truth be told, we have realized that expenses during the past few years
have been out of proportion. Advertising and
circulation revenues have fallen off—and the
subscription price paid by each student has
grown until it now exceeds one dollar each
year of forty issues.
But while endeavoring to overcome this unfortunate situation, we have encountered numerous difficulties which Students' Council did
not take into consideration. Council repeated
time and time again that more advertising and
more circulation would all but put the Ubyssey
on a paying basis—but Council never offered
any solution to the problem.
Following the advice of the retiring editor,
we have contrived this year to boost advertis-
ig returns above those of the same period last
season, and we feel that at the,end of the
Spring term the annual deficit of the Ubyssey
will be materially reduced.
But there is a likely prospect of the paper
paying for itself, if only the students will cooperate.
These students spend in Vancouver more
than one million dollars in the average college
year. If the Ubyssey could obtain advertising
to the value of four thousand dollars annually,
it would be operating on a paying basis. Four
thousand dollars is only 0.4 per cent, of one
million dollars. Every advertiser can, and
should be willing to afford 0.4 per cent of this
annual turn-over to University students in advertising in the college paper. Then why are
the advertisers holding back?
Simply because students are not prone to
"plug" the Ubys9ey when they patronize its
advertisers. To your housewife shopping is an
outing, and an occasion to chat — and that
means an unsolicited testamonial. But to a
student, buying is oftener a chore. He does not
stop to talk, and the advertiser cannot from
mere appearances differentiate him from a
bank clerk, an insurance salesman, a sailor and
so forth.
That is why it is essential that students,
professors and subscribers identify themselves
with the Ubyssey every time they make a purchase, no matter how large or small the purchase may be. For then, and then only, can we
be expected to increase our advertising, and
thereby make the Ubyssey free to the student
Tell them: "I saw your advertisement in
the Ubyssey."
Garbo is probably always worth watching;
certainly she is beautiful enough. However
most of the film Anna Karenina is waste.
Garbo does not really find herself until after
the first signs of Vronsky's break with Anna.
From then on she is wonderfully sure: she
makes Anna's suicide seem an absolutely inevitable occurence; a difficult thing to do.
Basil Rathbone as the husband gives a very
even performance.
However, many other parts of the picture
are really bad, and Anna Karenina, as a whole
is not successful.
Fredric March hasn't much idea as to what
he is about. He is even more hopelessly wooden than he was as Robert Browning. His voice
is somehow all wrong, and he has too many
May Robson makes a very queer Russian
Throughout the first part of the picture
the foreshadowing of the tragedy is made to
seem quite incidental to the elaborate settings
of Russian scenery. Garbo has too many
changes of costume, and the frilliness of the
period has been elaborately over-accentuated.
Many of the longer scenes (e.g. the officers'
drinking bout) are simply pointless.
In spite of Rathbone's sustained effort, and
in spite of Garbo, the picture just doesn't arrive.

Vocational guidance lectures will begin
again next week. Last year these noon hour
lectures in spite of their wide variety and general excellence received very little attention
from the student body.
Tommy Berto, a graduate from this University is in charge of all arrangements with
speakers. Generally one of the most prominent
Vancouver men engaged in the vocation under |
discussion is persuaded to come out to the Uni-1
versity to lecture. Such men deserve attention
and the students are amply repaid for giving
them their time.
These vocational guidance lectures are one
of the few links connecting the Alumni organization with the Undergraduate body and for
that reason, if for no other, merit the students'
Last year many of the few students who did
attend had the bad manners to take their
lunches with them. It is to be hoped that such
a breach will not occur again this year. Further
information concerning these lectures will appear in the Ubyssey.

Members of the Letters Club have
arranged the second recreational book
display assembled today on the desk
of the reference librarian, Miss Anne
The books are chosen to represent
the varied interests of the group. They
are not books that were required for
any course, out books which provided the contributors with hours of
genuine pleasure and a certain enjoyment which if more than satisfying.
The display is not merely to be
looked at, since any student may
check cut any of the books in the
usual manner at the loan desk. The

week by the members of the club.

THE snake rarade through city
streets on Wednesday evening may
perhaps have keen contrary to the

initiation ceremony this year, and all
tendency to damage public or private property "anywhere," but it did
show that the freshman class possesses at least a modicum of life and
The overage columnist, I realize, is
not ordinarily supposed to commend
any person o- group of persons on
their actions. The average columnist
is always pictured as a cynical, hypocritical old man with flowing whiskers and a perpetual frown on his
deep-lined forehead.
But I, "Sherlock," intend to treat
things differently. When I think anything is "a good thing," I shall not
hesitate to say so—and the snake parade last week is one of those traditional events which I consider acceptable.
I did not personally take part in
the parade, but with great interest I
followed it during most of its course,
from Cambie street grounds through
theatres, hotels and . . . yes, even
beer parlours ... as far as Chinatown.
And here I feel it my privilege to
compliment the organizers of the
scheme on th* masterful way in
which the parade waa handled. Only
once or twice did I notice any action
on the part of students which might
have been made the subject for severe censure on the part of Vancouver citizens or police authorities.
Yes, I'm glad there was a snake
pared, and fortunately it was put
across without serious complaints of

ALTHOUGH i: must be admitted
that the proposed scheme for
the institution of extension lectures
under the committee on adult education will doubtless prove to be of inestimable value to many unfortunate
British Columbinrs who reside in out-
of-the-way sections of the province,
I can see no possible justification for
granting leave of absence to senior
professors who vill conduct the lecture series throughout the Interior
and Vancouve.' Island.
President L. S. Klinck in his opening address on September 24 mentioned that the University was in
truth overcrowded, and suggested
that a policy of limitation might have
to be introduced.
And now, in p. premature effort to
commence tho adult education program in B. C.,—before adequate preparations have been made for any increase in the staff, and before adequate funds are availble for the
founding of a oepartment of extension
at the University—the committee has
definitely arranged to send 18 senior
professors, admittedly the best and
most experienced on the staff, away
from the college for several weeks
during each term.
Without intending any slur on the
mentality or rhllity of those persons
who will benefit by the lectures, I
would point out thjt the effect of this
policy must react unfavorably on the
standing of th.' students who registered for courses under tne touring

'Dance In Socks-'
Edict from Killam
"Darn those socks! Or should it
be shoes? Anyway, all men attending the "Starvation" Dance Wednesday must wear an extra pair of socks
over their shoes, or check their shoes,
or come barefoot, or sump'n. The
gym floor must remain unscratched."
This is the dictum of "Honest R.
J." Killam, Junior Member on Students' Council. Monday he strode
into the Pub, and lifted one of his
massive feet to the counter. '[Look]"
he cried. "That would ruin the gym
floor, And hsU* the men at Varsity
have heels like this."
At the same time it was learned
that admission to the dance would
be 15 cents; that no food and no decorations were to be expected. Baillie
and his Columbians will supply the

By Alumni Day
Homecoming week will not take
place this autumn but instead a new
function to be known as Alumni Day
will be held on November 9. An alumni committee, headed by Johnny
Burnett and aided by Students' Council, is in charge of all arrangements.
Plans are as yet tentative, but one
feature of the day will be an English
Rugby game against Occasionals.
Afterwards a tea dance will be held
in the Gymnasium.
The Players Club ia being asked to
present a play in the auditorium during the evening intsead of the usual
class skits. Probably ono; of the plays
produced by the club at Qualicum
this summer will be chosen.
Before the play a supper will be
served to the Alumnae in the Caf.
A Grad supplement to the Ubyssey
will, be printed about November 1.
This will contain all the graduate
news obtainable and the supplement
will be circulated to graduates all
over the Province.
In connection with Alumni Day an
ex-editor of the Ubyssey will be
asked to resume his editorial duties
on November S; he will choose his
whole staff from ex-pubsters. Tha
resulting paper will be distributed
free to all alumni attending the Alumni Day.
The usual Homecoming Week will
be held in the spring and it is expected that it will be combined with

My big sister, is she mad. Oh, my giddy grandmother's
horse-hair sofa. She saw that thing in last week's paper about
my offering to share her with a freshman who had no big sister cause there was enough of her for two/member? Well,
when she* read that she turned positively purple.

tia, I weigh only 161 pounds without my - - well, I only weigh
161, and that is only fifty pounds more than you weigh yourself.   After all, what is pounds between friends?"
"It's nothing between friends," I agreed amicably. "The
trouble is that you have it all."   Somehow, that didn't exactly
clear the air.
• *   *
I went shopping on Saturday, and believe me I guess I
can tell even the seniors a thing or two about the stores of
this town. Do they all know that Wilson's Glove and Hosiery
Shop on Granville Street is not just for students with fat
purses? Why, they've got everything there from the most heavenly silk undies to the cutest little cotton ones. Besides, I saw
some stockings made specially for the campus, and yet so sheer
that you could wear them out to dinner or anywhere. Bought
some pigskin gloves of navy blue, so had to go and get an outfit to wear them with.
• »    *
Saw just the thing across at Saba's. It was a most scrum-
dumptious blue and white plaid silk. Specially lovely for winter I thought because it looked like wool does, all soft and
warm, you know, and yet it draped as only silk material can.
They had the same material in all the season's shades, but I decided just to get the blue for the time being, 'cause I honestly
don't think that a person should buy everything, I honestly
* *    *
I certainly have to thank my big sister for one thing - - she
told me about Anne Moloney's. I was a bit afraid that it would
turn out to be a shop for women with larger hips, or somethin'.
But no, everything was almost too lovely to touch, and each
dress had something definitely original about it. Oh me, what
a roomfull of temptations! Anne Moloney herself came to show
me her things. I was awful lucky to meet her as she isn't often
in town, 'cause she spends a lot of time down in the States
where she gets all the news about the fashions while it is still
news. I thought she was awful sweet. 'Nother nice thing, is
that she has a hat shop in connection with the store where you
can get hats to complete an ensemble.
• *   *
And then, just by luck, I happened to find myself in the
Blue Goose for tea. It was certainly my lucky day. Not only
are the decorations awful tricky, but the food is simply scrum-
my. AND, I am definitely going to the Frosh with a tall fair
man, who is going to be insanely jealous of my popularity! I
know, 'cause the fortune teller told me so, and for nothing too.
I'm going to make that tall fair man take me there to the dinner dance pretty soon, I can tell you.
* *   *
After tea I looked about for a pair of shoes for my new
outfit. Rae's had just the thing I wanted, and for just the price
I wanted to pay.  They were so comfy I wore them home.
* *   *
Stopped off in South Granville on my way out to my boarding house just to see what the shops in thatdistrict were like.
Decided that anyone who doesn't look at those stores before
making up her mind what to buy is dumber than I am. Found
the loveliest Lingerie Shop—Mrs. Patton's. She had the smartest assortment of blouses that were just right for Varsity - - nice
and tailored, and yet not dull I had the hardest time deciding which to get. When I had finally made up my mind she told
me that I could look at her things just as long as I liked. At six
o'clock I was still looking and admiring.
And so to dinner ....
If you want a good Tux, I wish to
dispose of one that has been worn
only half a dozen times, as it is too
small for me. Good cut, excellent
quality, recent style. Size about 38.

Hoop Squad Prepping
For Opening Game
Moe Is Coach
With the opening game of the 1935-
36 season two weeks away, the Blue
and Gold Senior A Hoopsters are hard
at work, striving to smooth out the
crinkles and send this year's Basketball Thunderbirds soaring to another
Mainland Championship.
Practices are being held every day
with Coach Ivor Moe and Manager
George Crosson giving tho boys
plenty to do.
With Joe Pringle, one of the main
reasons why Varsity was on top last
year, at his old position on the defence, and Bruce Millar, a star on
the Senior B team last season, as the
other first string guard, the Bask-
eteers have an A-l defence,
George McKee, who has had two
years Senior A r xperience, is the center men on the first forward line,
having Bill Patmore and Erik Schofield as his aides.
The Freshmen may have been without spirit on the campus but they
certainly aren't on the Basketball
floor. Their three representatives on
the Senior A team show class, and
should put plenty of pep in the second team. Glenn Mason, of Trail,
and Jack Davis, of Kamloops, are the
two Frosh who will form the second
defence line, while Alec Lucas, the
former Brittania track star, will alternate with George McKee at centre.
Lloyd Detwiller and John Lafon,
two Sciencemen, are holding down
the two forward posts on the second
line, and both have shown plenty of
basket-snagging ability in practice.
The melon-tossers will again enter
the G.V.A.A. league, which this year
is comprised of Adanacs, Province,
V.A.C., and Vanity. Plans are also
under way for another tour below
the line, which was such a success
last Christmas.
2nd. Div. Ruggers
Lose To All Blacks
Score Is 12-5
Playing their first game of thc season with three of their regular men
missing, Varsity's Second Division
Englsh Rugby Fifteen was defeated
by the North Shore All Blacks on
Saturday afternoon by a score of 12
to 5.
North Shore opened the scoring
with a touch which they failed to
convert but Wilson scored a nice try
after for Varsity which Andrews
converted, putting Varsity ahead. But
with the handicap of lack of practice
together with playing uphill, Varsity's attack weakened in the second
half and the All Blacks piled up a
substantial lead to finish the game at
the favorable ei.d of a 12-5 score.
Outstanding among the Varsity
players were Shirl. Griffin, at fullback, Ron Andrews in the three-
quarter line and Harrison among the
forwards. The Varsity line follows:
Griffin, Ellis, R, Andrews, Watson,
Wilson, Trussell, Harrison, Martin,
Leckie, Ewinjj, Johnson, Colthurst,
Hobson, Walsh and J. Andrews.

The first cheerful news of the sport season for Varsity
broke Saturday afternoon when the old reliable ruggers demon-
started that one, at least, of our teams has not lost the habit of
coming out on the long end of the score.
Rolling over the red-shirted Ex-Magee to the tune of 22-3,
our 1934-35 championship organization gave promise that their
triumphant progress may well be repeated this season, even
though they will be up against tougher competition.
The team is little changed from last   it necessary to remove the boots from
year, and it wes early demonstrated
that the  old  spirit  is still  there—in
fact, they were so eager to commence
the  slaughter   that  they  kicked  off
and had play underway several minutes before it was discovered that no
referee was on hand.
On the arrival of the missing arbi-
trer, the game was re-started with
all due formality
and, doubtless
benefiting by his
preliminary warm
up, Carey immediately booted over
a very pretty 35
yard penalty. Allowing no grass
to grow under
their feet, Var-
bave Corey        sity   followed   up
the kick-off, scrimmaged on Magee's
line, retreated half-way up the field,
and then got or.e of those flashing
three-quarter   runs   away    to   send
Stockvi3 over at the flag.   The convert, on the long angle, failed.
The pack then came into its own,
and  scrambled  down the field  in a
confused dribble, sent the ball out of
the scru.n to Mttcer, who booted over
the line just as he was tackled.   An
unidentified warrior out of thc ruck
his overheated dogs, which gave the
boys a short rest,
Harrison advanced the ball to the
opponents, line and the pack barged
across for Pearson to score, but the
convert missed.
At this point one Ex-Magee man
retired from the field the worse for
wear, which apparently developed so
much annoyance in his fellow players that they summoned up their energies into one last push, and made
a try.   It was not converted.
The final s.oring of the day was
due to Carey, who, in two attempts,
advanced to *he line and plunged
over.   Mercer made the convert.
Final Score 22-3
Time was ca'.led with the count 22-
3 for the Blue and Gold.
On the basis of this performance,
Varsity looks capable of repeating in
the championship struggle again this
year against tho best Vancouver has
to offer, although the Rowing Club-
Occasional opener showed that at
least one team that was out of the
race last season is in it again this
From a seniimental viewpoint, Var-

Half Time 14-0
Just to mii:o everyone happy, the
team dished t.n a combination of
kicking, passu;; and zig-zag running
two and a half times across tha field
that put Mercor over the line for a
score at its finish. Carey, as usual,
converted, and the score stood 14-0
at the half.
In the second stanza Ex-Magee stiffened, but managed to make little
impression on Varsity's well-oiled

After the game, Coach Dobbie appeared to be leascnably satisfied with
the initial efforts of his proteges, but
was very conservative in his commendations, pointing out the weakness of the opposition.
Team play, as is usual in the Varsity ruggers, e mounted to more than
individual efforts, but outstanding
among their motes appeared to be
Porter, a new recruit, Bird, who
turned in an excellent performance
his first time .4 full-back, and the old
