Dr. Dolman Denounces
Attitude of Vancouver
Scores Public Apathy
On Health
Matters
AUMNCEOBJECTS
"Bacteriological research in
relation to health and disease
is in some respects a social
function of its own, but its direction and speed of advance
are determined by the attitude
of the people."
CITIZENS RESPONSIBLE
That was the keynote of Or. C. E.
Dolman's address to the Vancouver
Institute—that the future position of
public health now rested largely in
the hands of the citizens themselves.
Tall and slim, the distinguished young
Cornish scientist who has recently
come to the University made a deep
impression on his audience.
Dr. Dolman paid tribute to the work
of Pasteur and Koch, and mentioned
the work of the Connaught Laboratories before he came to the main
part of his lecture. "The Connaught
Laboratories," he said, "are an institution serving the public welfare, of
which Canada should well be proud."
PUBLIC APATHY
Dr. Dolman made the audience
rather uncomfortable by-hta sen thing
denunciation of public apathy along
the lines of communal health measures, with a special castigation for
Vancouver. Malaria, he affirmed,
stays out of Canada only because of
the rigors of climate, while cholera,
bubonic plague, and typhoid rover are
only suppressed by the vigilance of
health authorities. In this province
the incidence rate of diphtheria alone
is encouraging,  this decrease  having

come about by the use of cnti-toxin.
Scarlet fever could be similarly wiped
out, but lack of preventive measures
has caused such an increase in the
incidence that it, together with
whooping cough, forms a \ery serious problem today. Dr. Dolman
proved al these points by reference
to official statistical charts. "A true
citiran's conscience," he warned his
hearers, "is necessary for the elimination of disease."
Speaking of the frequency of small-

Art Exhibit In
Faculty Room
Of Library
An exhibit of thirty-nine pieces of
dry point by three local artists is
being displayed under the auspices
of the Art Club in the Faculty room
of the Library starting today. This
exhibition was displayed in the Vancouver Art Gallery in December and
was judged one of the most successful black and white exhibitions put
on in Vancouver. A price list will be
posted with the exhibition ond replicas of any pictures may be obtained
also.
"Although this is only the first exhibition the Art Club hope to have
a series of like exhibits during the
year," states thc president of the
club. This association vould be
pleased to receive comments from the
students on the work. The three artists, Paul Goranson. Orvil'.o Fisher
anci Edward Hughes are young British Columbia mon "who aro contributing a lively note to the Art of
B.C."
The} take as their subjets scenes
of the province and arc th; painters
of three murals in the First United
Church in Vancouver. They were
students of the Vanocuver School of
Art under C. H. Scott and later of
the B. C. College of Art under F, H.

PHYSICS CLUB

Physics Club will be held Friday,

Monday noon saw the usual quota
of broken windows and near casualties as the more simple-minded Arts-
nun and Sciencemen engaged in their
first brawl of this year.
Some thirty sciencemen started the
fun, coming underneath the Arts common room and valiantly smashing in
four or five large windows. The Arts-
men did little till members ot the Pep
Club climbed up on the roof of Auditorium Building and proceeded to
shower the attacking Sciencemen.
Midway through it, an accident ac-
(curred which might well have been
tragic. Tim White, a freshman, standing in an upstairs room,'"asked for"
some snow. He got it, but not before
he had shut the window. The snowball broke the panes, cutting White
all about the face. Only by luck
were his eyes not seriously hurt. Some
time later, a similar accident happened to a girl in this Green Room.
ARTS VICTORIOUS
The fight rather languished till the
Artsmen went to the camp of the enemy. A wonderful exhibition staged
in the vicinity of tha Science Common
Room completely routed the Science-
m'on (said the Artsmen) and resulted
in vengeance being taken on several
innocent windows, after which honors were considered more or less
even.
Sporadic fight broke out with several minor casualties and much loss of
dignity on the part of those hit. The
Pub office was literally whitewashed
hy several hours of bombardment
from outside, while the staff themselves reverted to type and made good
use of available snow. Peggy Higgs
was kept occupied all noon-hour by
various gentlemen (mentioning no
names, Rines and Grant) who decided that a little snow would undoubtedly be useful for cleaning purposes,
while about twenty co-eds letrentecl
to the parking area and staged a gentle demonstration of how snowballs
should be tossed to get minimum results.
All in all, it was a most successful
day—for whoever has the contract for
supplying panes  to  the University.
PRESENTER FRIDAY
By M. A. E.
We saw "Waiting for Lefty." The
Festival   committee   only   gave the
Ubyssey   representatives   tickets for
one night, Friday, therefore this must
be incomplete, but "Lefty" won, and
we saw that.
If the same "Lefty" hadn't been
third on the program we would have
left immediately after "Beclcy Sharp."
It was like that. The play itself
wouldn't have been so bad, for a Sunday School entertainment, unfortunately the majority of the acting was
even below that level. Jessie Gibb,
as Becky tried hard enough and might
have risen to a certain degree of effectiveness had the directing been ad-
quate. The rest of the cast gave her
no support whatever. Amelia, played
by Jean Band, was an attempt at
being charming when the characterization did not require it. A decide-
ization did not require it. A decidedly youthful actor was stuffed
Sedley (Albert Bawden). Tom Cun-
ingham and Alex Warner, automatically repeated lines in the remaining
two roles. They wore their military
costumes well. In fact the rather
lovely costumes were the outstanding
feature of the play.
EVELYN FRISH STARS
The second play, "The Lovely Mirage," was designated, "a lyric drama",
and it was just that. Passages of ethereal beauty were intermixed with sordid tragedy in the best modern manner. The result was pathetic. Had
the role of the Daughter been played
by someone with greater experience
who could carry her audience with
her into the realm of dreams and visions the play might have succeeded
better in pulling at the heartstrings
of the audience as it was undoubtedly
intended to do. On a whole the play
was good enough entertainment, well
directed and adequately staged with
some rather splendid character acting
by Evelyn Frith. A half hearted at-

CAMPUS CROUPS BACK PROJECT
The Union Building drive will open today with meetings of all classes at 12:15
noon. The students are asked to turn out on
time at the following rooms:
Arts '36— Science 300.
Arts '37— Science 200.
Arts '38- Arts 100.
Arts '39— Auditorium.
The Science classes will meet in their
respective Drafting Rooms at 12:15 noon .
A full attendance of all classes is necessary, stated Jay
Gould in making the announcement.
At noon Wednesday in the Auditorium a meeting of the
Alma Mater Society will be held.
It is being stressed by Colonel Sherwood Lett, chairman
of the Permanent Memorial Committee, that students should
immediately make up lists of those whom they intend to solicit
for funds.
These lists should be turned into the committee before
the drive starts in order to avoid duplication of names. This rule
is most important, it is pointed out.
Full details of the plans for the drive will be announced
at class meetings today and at the general meeting tomorrow
noon.
A Ubyssey canvass of many campus groups indicate that
support for the Memorial Building will be enthusiastically given.
Theologs, Sciencemen, and all the divisions of the Arts Faculty are combining to make the drive a success.
The Ubyssey will carry further stories in every issue to
report on the progress of the drive.

Alberta News-Fee* For Athletics
Compulsory-Gateway Faces Libel
By LARRY ALEXANDER
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, JAN. 31-Affairs in the Students' Union
here have been rapidly becoming more and more complicated as time passes.
A special meeting of the Union was called this afternoon at 4:30 in response
to a petition signed by over 100 students, and as was the case with last week's
special meeting there was a full house in Convocation Hall, ovr 700 students
attending. Unlike last week's meet, however, this afternoon's was quiet and
rather uninteresting. There was a long discussion re the status of athletics on
this campus, terminating in the passing of a motion to appoint a committee
of students not members of the Council to look into the entire situation, with
the end in view of imposing a compulsory athletic fee, the amount of the fee
to be determined by the committee, although a sum of $3.00 was suggested.
Nominations for membership in the committee were so numerous that a special ballot will have to be printed and voting for committee members will
take place in the near future. It will of course be necessary to submit any
proposal for the imposition of a compulsory athletic fee to a general vote
of the students and a two-thirds majority will be neccessary to passit. Judging by results of votes on such fees in the past, the proposed fee will heve
rather rough travelling.

The all-important question of relations of student.*! and faculty was not
tvached and it is believed possible
that another special mectinf! of the
Union may be necessary in the very
near future to take care of this question. Already records havo been broken and history made by the holding
of two special meetings in the space
of two weeks.
TRICK HEADLINE
Last Wednesday's issue of the Gateway, which was published under the
auspices of tho "Gooseberry Club"
carried a "trick" headline the purport
of which was that a member of thc
student body, R. J. Samuels, denied
he had any connection with the pub
lication of the "Picador," u small
green sheet which appeared mysteriously on the campus last v/eek immediately prior to the special meeting of the Union. The Picador was
published anonymously, and was devoted principally to a violent attack
upon the "Gateway." The "trick"
headline in hist Wednesday's Gateway, while stating Samuel's denial
of connection with the Picador, was
so arranged that he three most prominent words, in large capitals read
"SAMUELS PUBLISHED PICADOR"
while the words expressing his denial were in very small type and visible only at close range. Following
threats of action on the part of Mr.

Players' Policy Good
SPEAKSJERE
Mr. Allan Wade, eminent English
actor and producer, strongly recommended the policy of Tho Players
Club at the University of B.C. when
he spoke to a student audience in
Arts 100 Friday noon. "If tn organization is looking to the future," he
said, "it is best to produce serious
plays, or lighter plays if they are
outstanding examples of their kind."
Mr. Wade pointed out that the more
frivilous production has little theatrical value and Is soon forgotten by
those who saw It.
"We are witnessing today the gradual decline of the theatre in face of
the competition of the motion picture,'' the speaker stated. "If the film
continues to gain in popularity we are
likely to see a day when a generation
is born who will never see n play on
the stage."
MOVIES MORE POPULAR
"The movies are not only taking
our theatres, they are also taking our
leading dramatists," Mr. Wade added.
"London is one of the few cities rich
enough to support a good professional
theatre."
The speaker stated that there Is a
curious parador today. On the one
hand more attention than ever before
is being paid to the drama by educational authorities—but on thc other
hand tho theatre as a living art Is
nearly dead.
"The amateur theatre in Canada is
well developed," he said, "and there
is no reason why you cannot develop
Canadian drama in any way you desire."

THEY REALLY WON
We listened last Friday evening with pleasure to a radio debate between Len Martin and
Tom Marshall of U. B. C. and a team from the
University of Manitoba. The pleasure was
caused by the fact that the local boys had presented the better case and were deserving of
victory. But the next day the decision was announced in favor of the Winnipeg team.
The reason for the victory is more appar-
et when we tell you that one of the three judges
was a minister—and the U. B. C. team was debating for legalization of sweepstakes!
This is not the protesting cry of a loser who
is merely protesting because he lost—it is a
protest on what we consider good grounds.
U.B.C. debaters are used to losing—that has
become a habit—but when they present a winning case against a team who sounded not only
unconvincing but unconvinced, and we learn
that two of three judges (two retired farmers
and a minister) give the weaker team the decision — then we feel justified in making a
strong protest.
The U. B. C. speakers can be congratulated
on their excellent style and their strong case,
we hope that the poorly considered decision
does not discourage them. And to Professor J.
Friend Day, debating coach, we also express
congratulations for the work of his boys.

Our Looking Backward coumn gives us this
week a quaint example of editorial austerity.
It seems that the worthy editor-ess of 1918 did
not altogether approve of that OscarWilde fellow.
The most amusing aspect of the note is not
that this classic of pure intellectual comedy is
frowned on as "piffling." It is that the Ubyssey should take a stern and Godly attitude,
and that the Players' Club shoud be courageous enough to stage what they life. Today
the Ubyssey is in the hands of a bunch of
rowdy pagans, and the poor Players' Club is
so fearful of the Sunday-school morality of certain powers- that-be, that they dare not select
a play with a bedroom scene (even though it
be by Beaumont and Fletcher), or play a mistress, and it is said that even the homely
"damn" is eliminated from their scripts. How
are the mighty fallen !

THIS BOLOGNA  ABOUT
PACIFISM
Those who oppose war without considering the many benefits thai would
result to humanity if the world were
to embark on a couple of years of
unrestricted warfare. The matter is j
worthy of fuller examination than
this mere statement.
To begin with, the whining Utopian,
always loud and insistent m his opposition of war, entirely overlooks
tho fact that a good war would absolutely cure the present condition of
unemployment . . .
Not only would this unemployment
problem be solved, but also would
that of wages. By decreasing the
number competing for job?, the employer would be forced to p\iy higher
wages in order to get the men he required.
The stimulation given to industry
is not to be overlooked. Science also
would be stimulated . . .
To enumerate the benefits of war
in such a short space would be impossible ....
The greatest drawback to war is
that it is very expensive. But for
the stupid and unthinking opposition
that would be aroused, we would proceed to outline a cheaper and even
more efficient manner at arriving at
ths desirable decrease in population
... On the whole, then, war is the
best of all possible methods for
slaughtering the greatest number of
people in the shortest possible time.
Our patriots should discover some
method of making the pacifists see
the great mistake they are making.

Peeps' Diary
Since the new gymn classes it would seem that one fraternity
at least has decided that its members must include gymnastics in
their curricull in order to carry on the tradition of well rounded men
of the wold.
As a result Mr. Lanning has been seen gazing in speechless admiration at the stupendous gymnastic workouts of Pierce Douglas In
the stacks. Pierre, it is true, has been heard to remark with disdain
that this was nothing new and that the Tradition he upholds has always enjoined familiarity with the bar!
The same Tradition accounts for a sally made the other night
by a brilliant young astronomer of U.B.C. who, being locked in his
room by some wag, crawled out of the window. The stars were blotted out by inpenetrable clouds, and, lacking guidance from his cherished science, Mr. Rage hastily scrambled down the WRONG side of
the house to finally find himself hanging from a wooden gutter . , .
A night watchman passed by. "What are you doing up there."
he bawled suspiciously "Were you trying to break in " But with his
notorious "comeback" facilities sharpened by gymnastics Mr. Rage
shouted his answer. "No, I am just putting out a fire!"
On the campus gymnastics may hold sway but during the week
end every interest surrenders to that of skiing. Our student president
has at last thought of a scheme of showing his superiority and has
issued a challenge to every member of the student body for a cross
country ski race on Feb. 9, the judge to be Jay . . . (highest bidder
wins ) . . . The details are in Mr. Horn's office.
Strange, after this, that Berne was not to be found up any
mountain last weekend. It couldn't be the after effects of the Silver
Wedding Anniversary Thursday night surely.
But at any rate the most adventurous of the campusites will see
many of Fred Holme's famous ski suits for both men and women
next Sunday. Berne has already bought a complete outfit in the Norwegian national colors and Fred Holmes is ordering a few more for
John Brynelsen, Ellen Boving, Pat Larsen, Peter Bjorneson and
Elmer Jones. Norway forever!
I hav%h't gotten to the bottom yet of the rumor about Davie
Fulton and the new stenographer. Mr. Horn will be very angry when
he hears about it.
I also heard that some fraternity or other refused the active >
president's brother. Now I am sure that never would have happened
if the Freshman had been wearing one of the topcoats from E. A.
Lee's Style Shop. And speaking of E. A. Lee's topcoats . . . down
there they claim that the smartest materials for Spring are checks,
overchecks and camelhairs—and the colors—off shades of green and
greeny-blue. Watch their prophecy come true!
Whether the men 'copy the women or the women copy the men
I don't know but at Anne Moloney's all the new spring coats and
suits are in checks, and plaids too, though they still, as always, carry
an assortment of monotone tweeds in order to suit every taste.
In the intermissions of the drama festival on Friday night Hugh
Palmer and Jack Conway were learnedly discoursing on their theories of the theatre. I overheard Hugh remark that films cannot get
the intimacy between the actor and the audience, and Conway's rejoinder that "Oo well, they make up for it by an intimacy between
actor and actor." His brains must be in training for the next debate.
And so Yvonne won a box of chocolates at the Arts '38 party?
Well, she deserves to be lucky. She had on a gown from Anne Moloney's Thursday night and a ski costume from Fred Holmes on Sunday at Mt. Baker. That's co-operation for you! God bless her
There comes a time in every woman's life when she must choose
. . . but now at The Lingerie Shop thc decision can be made as easy
as possible, No more worrying about selecting stockings that go with
brown shoes and stockings that go with black shoes for the coed . . .
the new Spring shades Smokebrown and Moondusk are neutrals and
go with either black or brown.
The coed was specially considered also when Mr. Paton laid in
a stock of service chiffon hose for school wear at $1.00.
I wonder if the sudden visit to town of Davie Fulton's father
could be a clue And why did Alan Morley not get a ticket to the
Science Ball? Another deep black mystery.
With all the experience I'm getting I'll be a wow when I begin
writing mystery novels. I read "The Mystery of Udolpho" last night.
Perhaps I had better try copying that style in my diary for practice.
I head about some advertisements that two debators wanted to
run in the Ubyssey but they couldn't afford the 50c an inch rate.
Both were Want Ads—The first one was "Would like Ardy to take
me to the Coed—signed Peter Disney. The second was "Would like
Darrel to take me to the Coed—signed J. Gould."
I know that if John Cornish agrees to insert the ads free for a
consideration in the ski race next Sunday, the two debators will again
be in need of money to hire a secretary to handle their fan mail. I
saw Cornish looking at a scarlet windbreaker and toque in Fred
Holmes.
I was looking in the Band Box again on Saturday and now I
understand about the forward trend in hats. Soon there will literally
be nothing left at the back of our heads at all, but at least the long
front brim will be kind to our eyes during the strong summer sun.
Millinery must be fascinating. Miss Morrison of the Band Box
was telling me about the new "points"on hats—feathers cut up to a
point, felts shaped up to a point and points arranged in every conceivable way. It will be fun to watch the "points" appear on the campus.
At last there is a way to tell the difference between the Campus Twins. Maison Henri with his excellent hairdyers was the first to
know. There will probably be a rush through his chic little shop to the
salon upstairs. But I wonder how many will see one of the cleverest
going away gifts in Vancouver. Not many, because fitted in its case
their boudoir safety razor is no larger than a quarter! And costs no
more than two quarters.
The latest plans I was able to get for the smart ski alec race
next Sunday is the meeting place on Saturday night—of course—the
Blue Goose. There the waiters guarantee th dinner will be conducted
in an above board manner (take notice A. D.'st so that every contender will have a fair chance the next day.

"Right Down Your Alley"
Continued from Page 6)
delivered directly from the right corner of the alley. Now we are in a
position to deliver.
In the delivery of a bowling ball,
we must acquire the same principle
as employed in any other line of
sport; that is proper timing, or as
Babe Ruth once termed it—co-ordination of muscle, mind and body. To
acquire this condition all approach
movements incidental to the principle
movement must be very slow and deliberate. This eliminates any possibility of tensing of muscles and ensures
complete relaxation. The first step is
taken with the left foot and should
be a slightly longer than normal pace.
With this first step, the light hand
gripping the ball moves upward. On
the second step, the bal comes back
very slowly as far as possible without
straining, and on the third step, which
should throw all the weight of the
body on the left foot and consequently the left side of the body, the ball
is delivered right down the right
side of the alley, and the arm should
follow completely through from the
shoulder so that the flnisn position
of the hand is such that the thumb
is pointed directly down nt the alley. This follows through of the arm
Is what sends the ball in towards the
centre of the alley. The arm should
be made to swing like a pendlum
and our study of physics teaches us
that a pendulum swings in a slight
arc of a circle. At the point of delivery, the right side is fully relaxed
and all the strain is taken up by the
left side just as in the golf swing.
Deliver the ball with medium speed.
No not sacrifice accuracy for speed
whnch tends to throw you off balance. Bend from the waist so as to
get tho entire back into the shot.
Do not bend from the knees.
Apart from these cardinal principles of the delivery, two methods may
be employed in getting thc ball away
spot bowling and pin bowling. The
latter is most commonly used, but
the method I advocate and the one
used by most of the experts is spot
bowling. In this method, a spot is
located near the right corner of the
j.lley which by experiment will bring
your ball into the pocket. This experiment is what is termed "finding
the alley" and should not take more
than one or two balls. In pin bowling, the eye is concentrated on the
pocket and remains there until the
delivery is fully completed. The ball
is laid clown very close to the alley
and is skidded, not thrown. A ball
thrown on any alley cannot possibly
be controlled. This is highly important.
Eowling shoes should be used as
far as possible always with flat white
or brown rubber heels slightly bevelled down at the sole to avoid the
sharp edge. Black heels should never
be used at all as they contain sixty
percent lamp-black which is deposited on the runway making it most
objectionable for the player following
you.
In shooting the king-pin, deliver
from the same spot identically, as the
striko ball but turn the hand slightly
over so that the thumb points towards
this pin. This allows slightly more
follow through, throwing the ball
that much further over on the alley.

By Dorothy Cummings
In 1918 the publications
board raised definite objections
to the moral standard of the
drama chosen by the Player's
Club for their spring performance. An editorial appeared in
a paper of this time. "It does
seem extraordinary that the
play "The Importance of Being
Ernest' by Oscar Wilde should
be the one chosen by an organization of University students enjoying the broadening
influence of 'higher education'
who should stand for moral as
well as intellectual qualities.
The tone of the play is piffling
and cynical as is the mind of
the author. He describes characters whose manner of living
is unworthy of attention and
beneath contempt."
• • • •
It seems it was always, as it is today, a nerve racking and essentially
difficult business to publish a University of B.C. annual.
In 1918 in desperation, the publications board served notice on the
several classes and clubs of the University that they were about to set
aside space in the year book for each
association, which would have to be
filled by that group. The board refused to be responsible for the material which would go into those
pages or the finance expended in
photography and decorations. The
whole account of this change in policy smacked of disgust with the lack
of co-operation by the publishing
staff. It would seem, from the perusal of the various reports of the
Totem's progress this year, that this
apathy on the part of the student's
towards the publishing of a year book
was one of our traditions.
«   •   •
With the Union building campaign
about to begin we may look back to
another campaign, entirely different
to the present one but rather amusing, in which the students canvassed
the pedestrians in the downtown section one Saturday evening shortly
after the war, to raise money for tne
Victory Loan Fund. The whole of
the University, brilliantly clad in blue
and gold, spread up and down the
main thoroughfares and accosted every
person who had ventured out of
doors, for the purpose of selling them
Victory bonds. The campaign ended
v/ith a ceremony in which a dummy
"old skinflint too tight to buy a bond"
was lynched on the corner lamp post
1 and entombed at its base. During
this program several students were
arrested but soon released when they
had promised the police force that
they would buy their own bonds too.
Old Stamp Found
The very first print of the first
Canadian stamp was found last month
in a diary belonging to its designer,
Sir Sanford Fleming, by Sanford
Fleming Jr. This stamp was the original design sent to the Queen's
Printer and the Post Master General
for approval in 1851. The stamp is a
"three penny beaver vermillion" and
is to bo sold.
Only when the three or five pin is
left standing should you move over
to the left of the alley, and remember, in shooting the five pin, the secret of picking this off is keeping the
:irm in close tq the side and delivering right at it. Never allow the hand
to twist to the right, nor should there
bo a twist from the wrist to the left.
The wrist is kept in a rigid position
and the arm carries the hand over.
Above all, let me repeat in conclusion, RELAX. As the novice once
said who was taking a golf lesson and
the pro kept telling him to relax, in
exasperation he exclaimed, "I'll relax if it breaks every bono in my
body." Bowling, I assure you, my
clear readers, is a far more gentle and
exhilarating process.

The rapid sale of tickets has proved
that the Science Ball is the most popular function in the University social
calender. More than 200 tickets were
sold to Sciencemen. This support
amply rewards the painstaking efforts
of the executive, especially those men
who have the signs and decorations
to look after.

HOW TO CLEAN A
PURE-BRED PUP
Evidently a pure-bred pup is as
hard to raise as a flock of orchids.
Smus (the pup) after cavorting
around the coal bin all week end
looked like one of the gold-dust twins
so Tel and Gim undertook to clean
him up.
Tel (drawing the bath): "Mustn't
have the water too hot or it will take
the hair off."
Gim: "I have just phoned Billy
Oates and he says, you can't wash
these  dogs,   you   have  to  dry   clean
them."
Tel (after brushing the pup vigorously): "Now which is the cleaner
side, Gim."
Gim: "Both sides are thi same, let
me try baking soda."
(After rubbing Smus vigorously
with baking soda and then corn
starch with no visible result, Potter
then phones Mr. Oates).
Tel: "Oates says to use rolled oats
(excuse the pun by Potter).—Q.E.D.
Please do not feed Smus, if found
unescorted, wandering around the
campus. After spending mosi of Friday in the cafeteria Smus had the
outward appearance of a Beer Baron.

Dr. C. E. Dolman
At Institute
(Continued from Page 1)
pox, Dr, Dolman stated that Vancouver has the worst record of any Canadian city In this regard. "It will
not do to attribute this merely to the
fact that Vancouver Is a seaport near
the Orient—It is largely that the population contains too many people who
have a greater regard for personal
convictions than for the public welfare. Vaccination against smallpox
should be made compulsory, for every
unvaccinated person Is a menace to
the community. If reason and judgment do not prevail, coercion is justified to accomplish results."
By way of illustration, the lecturer
showed on the screen three ghastly
pictures of advanced cases—all greatly past the stage of "conscious objection." And he mentioned that within the last two months he had seen
here two equally bad cases, or, as he
added very quietly, not cases, but
corpses,
MICE USED
Then Dr. Dolman performed an experiment before the astonished eyes
of those present. From a wire cage
ho drew forth two white mice and |
amid the murmurs of the audience
set them on the table. He was beginning to explain the nature of his
intended experiment when he was'
suddenly interrupted.
"Before you proceed, Dr. Dolman,"
cried Mr. Tims, the treasurer of the
Institute, "Is this going to Inflict suffering on the mice?"
The young scientist raised his eyes.
"Not nearly so much," he replied, "as
you cause them by a trap. That Is," he
added, bowing, "If you believe ln
catching them."
One of the audience rose up and
walked out in protest.
Without looking at him or even
noticing the apparent hostility of
some others, the cool demonstrator
performed the experiment quickly
and painlessly. Then, smiling and
bowing again, he swallowed without
warning one test tube containing
broth in which billions of deadly
staphococci were growing. Almost as
a refresher, he tossed off again an
cqiyal amount of the toxin—a much
smaller dose of which quickly proved
fatal to one of the mice. He showed
that the toxin turned the blood cells
to water, but said that since he was
immunized he would suffer no ill effects from the poison. By this experiment ho not only strikingly
nroved the effiency of vaccination but
ilso won the admiration of many in
the audience through this rather dangerous act.
Dr. Dolman closed the lecture with
i series of remarkable motion pictures. These showed the rapid growth
of a germ colony of several millions,
starting from a single cell which elongated and divided, the same process being repeated by every new
part till soon the number became too
great to count.   The speaker received
"Lefty" Wins At
Drama Festival
(Continued from Page 1)
tempt at dialect weakened the opening scenes of the play, which was altogether unsuitable for drama festival work,
Then came "Waiting for Lefty" that
has been praised in every newspaper
nnd by the most callous dramatic critics since its first appearance last fall.
It was a propaganda play and the
audience were prejudiced, that is until
tho first few seconds after the curtain
had gone up. There is little that can
be said about this play that hasn't
been said before by James Butterfield
and other prominent critics. In fact
even on Friday night after seeing the
play for the third or fourth time the
same gentleman was seen in the lobby
praising the presentation enthusiastically. The University should be
proud of Guy Glover whose gripping
performance brought the play to its
smashing climax. Incidentally the original was cut and generally speeded
tip by re-arrangement for tho festival.
It is noteworthy that when speaking
of the university students, Wednesday
noon, Mr. Wade, festival judge, voiced
his dislike of propaganda r!ays. Yet
this play won. Seldom is there seen
a dramatic performance with the
freshness, the intense reality, the
skilful stagecraft and the virile
strength of "Lefty."
SHARP CONTRAST
In sharp contrast came "The Spinsters of Lushe," a Dresdon-like comedy presented by the Players Club
Alumni. It was a light play, cleverly directed, delightfully acted. Charming Is the most adequate adjective to
describe this presentation as a whole.
Perhaps a more powerful play might
have been more suitable. But as it
was "The Spinsters" was an entertaining and satisfactorily close to the Friday program. Acting in this play
were Eileen Griffin, Jean Salter, Elizabeth Magee, Ann Ferguson, Betty
Jack, and Alice Morrow, each one
giving a polished and finished performance.
"Becky Sharp" was produced by
the Young People of the United
Church, directed by F. Fullerton;
"The Lovely Mirage" by the Masquers Guild; "Waiting for lefty," by
the Progressive Arts Club, directed by
Garfield King and Guy Glover.

Raffle Puppy
The Sciencemen have started their
part in the campaign for the Brock
Memorial Building. Always willing
to try anything once they are raffling off a pure-bred wire-haired ter-
ried puppy—and is he a honey? He
is so homely—he is pretty. What they
want everybody to know is that this
dog is no "Mutt" but a real blue-
blood and comes from prize winning,
imported parents as is vouched by
the copy of the letter from Mr. Oates,
kennel owner, from whom he was
purchased.
Tickets on this "Science Mascot"
are on sale on the campus this week
for only ten cents and can be obtained from Sciencemen or at the
table at the foot of the Caf. stairs
where "Smus" (the pup) will be on
hand to thank, with a wag of his
stubby tail, each ticket purchaser. Tel
Potter says that he will try to arrange to have the draw Thursday
night at the Science Ball but points
out that to do this ticket sales will
have to be fast since this leaves only
three days—so get your tickets now!
The winner does not need to be
on hand if the draw is made at the
Ball, so get tickets for your whole
family and three or four for yourself
—they are only ten cents and the pup
is worth 920.00.

Samuels to-day's issue of the Gateway carries a full apology to Mr.
Samuels under a six-column head on
the front page, "APOLOGIES TO R.
J. SAMUELS." There is one apology
from the regular staff of the paper,
and another from the members of
the "Gooseberry Club" responsible for
the special edition.
Students received a surprise this
morning when, as happened immediately before last week's special meeting of the Union, another issue of
the "Picador" appeared in the halls,
quite as mysteriously as was the case
last week. This is the second issue
of this paper. Attacks in this issue
were chiefly directed at the executive of the Students Union, and at J.
Harper Prowse, director of the Student Publicity Department. Another
attack was directed at Mark McClung.
1936 Rhodes Scholar, who attacked
the editors of the Picador at last
week's meeting of the Union. Congratulations were also extended to
R. J. Samuels for his speech at last
week's Union meeting: "Orchids to
Mr. Samuels for having the courage
of his own convictions; if there were
more like him this University would
not be lacking in Student Spirit.
Shame on you Ralph for calling Mr.
Prowse names ! Don't you know ho
doesn't like that?" Although nearly
every member of the Students' Council and of the staff of the Gateway
have been attempting to locate tho
parties responsible for the Picador
their identities still remain a complete mystery.
The Science boys can rave about
their ball and the members of the
Senior Class can hide their faces in
shame; the most enjoyable and friendly party of the season was .given
Arts '38 last week. There seemed to
be a spirit of something or other that
made everybody just lose restraint
and have a good time. Everybody
was there, including a lot of Seniors
who wanted to see just how the Sophs
do it and a lot of Sciencemen getting last minute tips for the success
of their own affair. Yes, even the
caviar lady from the Pub Party was
there, but she had a new song.
They tried a Music Goes Round
contest, but will you believe it—most
of the contestants didn't know the
tune or words! So it just degenerated into a rendition of the masterpiece by all who wanted to join in—
the spot dance was won by Yvonne
Ladner, dancing at the time with
Ralph Killam ... the lucky girl was
the one who was nearest Mr. Brand's
left elbow when the music stopped
. . . Ritchie Galpin was playing host
to. a gang of sixteen . . . during the
intermission a gang by the piano
started to sing a xew Varsity songs
so, at the other end of the hall, Killam led the old-timer, "Clementine"
as a sort of opposition . . . tired of
that they tried, "Allouette."
The Musical Society table was
laughing at the antics of Harry Bigsby C38V39) while Jayne Nimmons
poured . . . Peggy McRae was presented with a prize for playing the
piano during the Intermission . . and
Mart Kenney surprised the crowd
with a snappy medley of Varsity
songs ... all in all it was a great
party.

a good job—it being the opinion of

An erstwhile Aggie and an inoffensive Artsman who happens to be

The Aggie of course took the wrong
meaning but the newspaper stuff of
which the Artsman was made caused
him to investigate. He rushed into
the Gables and aroused the occupants.
"Away, away, your house is being
swept away," he cried. But on investigation it was found that a pipe

BASKET SQUAD LOSES TO PROVINCE 43-30
Cheney Normal
Hands Varsity
Score 47-15
In the first home game of their Inter-Collegiate Series with teams from
the States, Varsity absorbed a 47-15
drubbing from the visiting Cheney
Normal team.
Varsity, who lost 39-21 to the same
team ln the Christmas Holidays, were
without the services of their star forward, "Patty" Patmore, and Bruce
Millar, both of whom helped considerably in holding the strong Normal-
ites on the tour. Cheney had it all
over the bewildered Colle3ians, and
tragically Illustrated to the U.B.C.
team and 400-odd staunch supporters
how to play basketball. Captain "Joe"
Pringle was again the only man on
the Varsity team who knew what he
was doing, and he turned in a remarkable performance, holding his
check, the 6 ft. 7 inch centre to 4
points, while garnering 11 out of the
U.B.C. total of 15 points,
Fine team-work, and accurate
shooting gave the Cheney team an
early lead, which they had no trouble
in increasing. Basket after basket
swished monotonously through the
hoop, and only a honey of a long
shot by Pringle, and free shot by
Berry saved Varsity from a scoreless
first half. When referee Maurie Van
Vliet blew the whistle ending the
first period, Cheney held a 32-3 lead.
In the second half, Doc Montgomery's boys decided to switch from
their wild-p ssing of the disastrous
opening period, and by so doing they
succeeded in holding the Southerners
to 15 points, while gathering 12 themselves. When the U.B.C. team trotted dejetcedly from the floor to join
the disheartened spectators in afternoon lectures, the total damage
amounted to 32, the score being 47-15
for the visitors.
Sad, Sad . . .
Cheney Normal—Anderson 6, West
4,  Eustace  4,  Ravensdorf  10,  Kearns

Intra-Mural
Swim Tonight
This evening the Swimming Club is
holding its annual inter-class gala at
the Crystal Pool. The meet takes
the form of intra-mural competition
and inter-class rivalry promises to be
keen. Particularily so is the close
balance between the first and second
year classes.
Listed among the entrants are the
following; Phil Marquettos, Archie
Byers, Angelo Provenzano, Jimmy
Hinton, Ian Smellie, Stan Roberts,
Dick Clive, Bruce Millar, Jim Beveridge, Bill Wainwright.
The list of events will include the
100 yards backstroke, the 50 yards,
breaststroke, a relay race, a 50, 100
and 200 yards freestyle. A novelty
underwater swim will also be featured to add a bit of extra interest.
HINTON HAS HOPES
Tonight's competition offers a special inducement to entrants in that the
team to meet the University of Washington team will probably be selected
from tonight's likely looking timber.
In reference to the projected contest
v/ith the U. of W„ Jimmy Hinton,
president of the local club, has hopes
of a victory, in tho" event that Washington does not field the nationally
prominent swimmer, Medica. In any
case, Hinton is very well pleased with
our swimmers and has every confidence in what he terms a fine bunch
of fellows. So far as is known at the
present time, the Washington trip is
scheduled to come off on the 21st of
this month.
"SPUD" DAVIS
Jack, better known as "Spud," is a
Kamloops product, and is taking 2nd
Year Applied Science. Formerly a
star centre on the Kamloops City
team, he was "lost" playing guard for
the first half of the season, but when
"Doc" moved him back to his old
pivot spot, he turned in tome fine
performances. A consistently smooth
player, he should make good on Varsity's 1936-37 Seniors.
Huskies Defeat
U.B.C. With Fine
Brand Of Hockey
1500 Spectators See Canadians
Slide Back Under a
Margin of 5 Goals
Seattle, February 4—Despite the apparent lopsidedness of the score board
Friday night's hockey game between
Washington Huskies and University
of British Columbia was declared one
of the best exhibitions of the great
Canadian game that has been seen
here this year. Only apparent inexperience in the nets on behalf of the
U.B.C. net guardian made possible the
8 to 3 score. Four of the e'ght goals
scored by the Huskies wtre long
shots from beyond the blue line,
which ordinarily would have been
turned aside.
The game was watched by more
than 1500 spectators. The Washington
band lent color to the occasion by
playing between periods while professional entertainers and champion figure skaters prevented any pause in
the programme.
Aside from the difference at goal,
the teams were evenly balanced, the
back checking was fierce 3nd the visiting team never let up from their
drives against the strong Washington
defence until the final gong sounded,
although the score was against them.
The game marked the resumption
of intercollegiate hockey and presaged
the formation of a coast hockey league
comprising University of Southern
California, Washington University and
University of British Columbia which
it is anticipated will be in full swing
by next year.
Washington blanked the visitors
during the first period, placing three
counters between the flags In this
stanza. In the second the Canadians
found themselves and pressed all the
way. Trussell's solo rush opened the
B.C. scoring. Price carried the puck
down soon afterwards, passed to Burnett, who shot against the goalie's
pads. Price followed tlirough and
scored on the rebound.
Midway in the final period Smith,
for the Huskies bagged the nets when
he soloed through the B.C. defence.
Price scored the visitors' final tally
when he accepted a pass from Burnett. Dene passed to Mavor just before the whistle for the Huskies
eight marker.
SUMMARY
The two teams meet twice again
this season. On Feb. 21 the Huskies
play a return engagement in Vancouver and on March 7 U.B.C. comes
to Seattle again for tho final conflict.

Intra* Mural Sports
In the Intra-mural schedule all Grass Hockey games
have been cancelled because of the snow. However, there
are two double-header basketball '..ames to take place in
the gymnasium on Wednesday and Friday of this week.
WEDNESDAY—
12:15 Science '36 vs. Arts '37.
12:45 Science '39 vs. Arts '38.
FRIDAY—
12:15 Teachers Training vs. Arts '36.
12:45 Science '38 vs. Science '37.
Last week Science '39 challenged any other class
to a game of lacrosse but no class has accepted the challenge as yet. The intra-mural council has decided to
award 50 points to this class and to any other class getting up a team and challenging other classes to a game

MEN'S JCLASSES
Punching Bag,   Gloves, Mats,
Horizontal Bar, Etc., To
Arrive This Week
Although the men's physical education classes prove to be very successful they will undoubtedly gain in
success and in attendance in the future, for it has been revealed that a
lot of new equipment will arrive later
this week. Mr. Van Vliet has ordered
a new horizontal bar, a ?nirty foot
mat, a professional punching bag, new
hoxing bloves and three new volley
balls. This splendid equipment will
provide for more participants and add
to the present progress of the classes,
Probably the greatest asset will be tho
new tumbling belt which will arrive
next week. This will be a tremendous
aid to the rising young tumblers of
U.B.C. and will eut down the number
of broken necks per month and the
death rate in our gymnasium.
There have also been two big
changes made in the gym itself. A
basketball hoop has been erected on
each side of the floor so that more
ardent hoopers may play "chink" in
order to keep in shape. Also a punching bag has been set up in the men's
locker room so that boxers may work
out without interfering with Miss
Moore's  classes. —MacEWEN.
COEDS LOSE
TO BRITANNIA
U.B.C. Women's grass hockey team
reached the semi-finals in a tournament held by the Lower Mainland
League Saturday and then lost. 2-0
to Britannia Grads. The co-eds first
played Grandview Grads whom they
easily defeated. In this game, Joan
Wharton, U.B.C.'s goal-getter, scored
a beautiful shot. The Grandview
girls could not penetrate the winners'
defense and had no opportunity
whatever to score. They had a bye
during the next set of comes and
then met Britannia Grads. The winners in this encounter were not much
better than the blue and gold team
but they had a wonderful centre forward, Myrtle Eipper, who scored
both their goals. The co-ed? played
very well and were the only second
division team to teach the semifinals. -NEVISON.

CAPTAIN "JOE"
George Pringle, for the past three
seasons a star guard on U.E.C. Senior
A teams, topped his many stellar performances on Saturday night against
Province. "Joe" scored 13 roints, the
second time in his Senior A career
that he has made "double figures,"
and went on to win the final of the
Free Throw Competition, sinking 33
out of 50.
CROSS COUNTRY
RACE FOR
FEB. 19
"Right Down
Your Alley"
By Saul Lechtrier
Due to the shortage of space last
week it was necessary to divide this
story in half. Just in case you have
forgotten, Mr. Lechtzier outlined some
of the fundamentals of bowling. He
told how the ball should be held and
concluded by pointing out the fact
that the player should not approach
the foul-line running. A few copies
of last week's "Ubyssey" are left in
the pub for those who are interested
in this subject.—Editor.
The approach is a slow deliberate
walk of just three steps regulated to
waltz time just as the slow back-
swing in golf. A position is taken up
on the alley just far enough back of
the foul-line so that these three steps
bring you within an inch or so of
the line. The starting point at this
distance back of the line should also
be slightly to the right of the centre
of the alley so that the ball may be

One of the greatest series of meets
seen In thc past few years Is being
prepared for by the Track Club. At a
meeting on Friday the schedule of
events was outlined by Vic Town.
The first event will be the crosscountry race which will probably be
held at noon on Feb. 19. This race
starts from the mall and continues
through all available fields and ditches, and finally ends up in front of
the Science Building.
The Arts '20 Relay is set for March
4 and usually draws a large crowd
Each class representative enters a
team of eight men to compete, and
points count towards the Governor's
Cup. The start is at the General Hospital, continues along 10th to the diversion, down Waterloo to 4th. along
4th to Tolmie, up Tolmie to 10th. and
out to the Administration Building.
Cars will be arranged to arop men
at their laps, and the Pep Club arrange a lap by lap announcement
of the winners in the cafe.
March 11th will see the combined
inter-class and inter-faculty meet in
the stadium. The combining of these
two meets will be a novelty, for the
Club feels that here is not enough interest shown In the individual meets.
A meet with Tacoma is expected on
either the 13th and 14th, or the 27th
and 28th of March. The team will
leave on a Friday and the meet will
be held on a Saturday, Tacoma usually shows the boys a royal welcome,
and the expectation of a holiday
should attract many.
The final meet of the year will be
in New Westminster on March 20th
and 21st. This is an indoor meet,
and five teams will be entered, including Victoria Y, and Tacoma.
Although this is a very full and
complete program, Town hopes for
the best, and is confident that Varsity will hold its own in all five
meets. Tho Varsity track is in poor
condition, and during the snow practices are being held in the gym. If
tho snow does not stay, the track
should be in condition in about three
weeks. - BERRY.
Saturday night at the V.A.C. gymnasium, Varsity Senior A's wrote finis to the Inter-City Basketball league
in a very dramatic manner, losing a
hard-fought battle to the All-star
Province quintette, 43-30.
It was "Pringle" night at the weekend Amateur show, with the versatile
Captain of the Blue and Gold squad
turning in another stellar performance. "Joe", again playing centre for
the Collegians, held the elongated
Purves down to 10 points, while collecting 13 himself. After this furious
fight with Province, George took on
Ken Wright of the Adanacs in the
final of the first annual free-throw
competition, defeating him easily,
sinking 33 out of 50, while "Hooker"
nervously sank 17.
Although the Alma Mater representatives werep laying the highly-touted
Newsies, they failed to be "awed" by
the high-scoring Giants, and started
the game by sinking 6 points without a reply from Chuck Jones' Boys.
"Long Jawn" evaded "Pring" to make
it 6-2, but "Joe" matched this basket
to make it 8-2.
HALF TIME
This was a signal for a 10-polnt
scoring spree by Province, with Purves and Osborne playing the leading
roles. However, the Students revived
and baskets by "Luke" Lucas, and
Kyle Berry tied It all up at 12-all
when the teams trotted off for their
well-earned rest.
At the start of the second period
Lav Gaerney and Norm Will sank
two baskets in the first minute of
play to put the Newsies in front 16-
12. "Tony" Osborne, one time star
guard for Varsity, went on a one-
man scoring spree to shoot the score
up to 23-12. A hurried "time-out"
called by "Joe" Pringle temporarily
stopped the incessant bombardment
of the Collegiate basket, but it failed
to dampen the ardour of the Province
team.
With about 7 minutes left to play,
Osborne, Bumstead, and Purves again
ran riot, and shot the .score up to
41-23 for the Newsies. Again the Blue
and Gold squad started a belated rally, and for the final 2 minutes it was
all "Varsity." Lucas, and Pringle
brought the U.B.C. total up to 30
points, while Purves' last basket of
the night made the final score 43-30
for the potential Canadian Champions.
The Finality:
Province — Wright, Purves 10, Osborne 13, Kennington 2, Smith 4,
Bumstead 7, McLeod, Will 4, Parsons,
Gernaey, Armstrong 3.   Total—43.
Varsity—Detwiller 2, Lucas 4, Ridland 2, Berry 3, Pringle 13, Davies 2,
Mitchell, Hardwick  4.    Total—30.

Distinguished Career Here
Dean Brock Had Long
And Brilliant Career
FIFTEEN YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE
UNIVERSITY
Dean W. R. Brock, to whose memory the Students' Union
Building is being dedicated, achieved brilliant success in every
phase of his career - - his civil, military and university life.
He was born in Perth, Ontario, in 1874, the son of a minister. He received his education at the University of Toronto and
Queen's University where he was known as a brilliant football
and rugby player. He later attended the University of Heidelberg, While at university he was outstanding in academic work
receiving scholarship after scholarship.
After graduation he spent a short
time as demonstrator in Geology at
Queen's University but gave this up
to join the Geological survey. In 1907
he was appointed Director of the
Geological Survey of Canada with
headquarters at Ottawa. In 1914-15
he served as Deputy Minister of Mines
at Ottawa and in collaboration with
F. I. Condon prepared the draft which
forms the basis of Canadian mining
laws.
In 1914 he joined the 72nd Regiment
of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada. The next year he was appointed
to the 72nd Battalion with the rank
of Major, Commanding a Company.
He received many promotions one of
which was the appointment of Second
in command of the 19th Reserve Battalion. At this period he accompanied General Allenby during the successful Palestine campaign. In November 1933, as Lieut,-Colonel he
took over the command of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, He was
a life member of the Canadian Corps
Commission and took a great interest
in welfare work among the returned
soldiers.
After the war he returned to Vancouver where he organized and established the engineering faculty at
the University of British Columbia,
it was in great part due to the efforts
of Dean Brock that the academic rec-
'ord of this University rates among
the highest of the universities of the
North American continent. He was
never too busy with his many duties

COMMITTEE OF
FOUR APPOINTED
FOR CAMPAIGN
Press Committee For
Publicity; Also Club
Representatives
Jay Gould, Darrel Gomery, Ardy
Beaumont, and John Harrison have
been appointed Campaign Committee
to organize the drive to raise $30,000,
the Alma Mater Society's share in
building the Brock Memorial Building, Bern Brynelsen, President of the
A.M.S., announced last Thursday. The
committee will be assisted by representatives from class executives, Faculties, Phrateres, fraternities, the
S.C.M., sororities, and the Big Block
Club.
"At first sight this list does not
seem to include the whole student
body," Jay Gould stated, "but actually it represents everyone. We could
not name any more organizatlins
without serious overlapping."
In addition to the above named
committees, a press committee has
been appointed, consisting of John
Cornish, Zoe Browne-Clayton, Dorwin
Baird, and Reginald Jessup, who will
be   responsible   for   publicising   the
campaign.
Proposed Memorial
Building To Contain
Many Features
Ballroom. Common Rooms, Aro Included In
Tentative Plant
While the Board of Oovernon has not yet made any final
decisions on the plans of the Brock Memorial building, a committee has been appointed to Investigate the greatest needs of
the university and'final plans will be designed accordingly at a
later date.
The exact location of the building and the style of architecture have not yet been decided upon. The site shown In the
calendar is Just behind the Library, beside the Stadium, although there aro alternative sites which would also be suitable.
The suggested floor plan as shown in a previous issue of the
Ubyssey includes a large central ballroom one hundred by fifty
feet, or about the same size as the Commodore ballroom. The
men's end will be separated from the women's by a movable
partition, giving added common room space when the room is
not in use as a whole. Large Common rooms open off either
end. These may be used for dining room during social functions.
A dining room is contemplated. This would not take the
place of the cafeteria, but would be available for club luncheons,
teas, banquets, and the entertainment of visitors. "It is rather
embarassing to ask guests like Mr. de Ridder to dine in the
noise of the cafeteria," Jay Gould said.
Reading rooms will be a welcome feature of the proposed
building. At present the Library offers seating accommodation
for 350 out of the 1880 students registered at U.B.C. Many stu-
dents who are at present unable to study on the campus would
be enabled to do so in these rooms.
Another room will be suitable for extra-curricular lectures,
musical recitals similar to those given at Hart House, and other
functions, such as meetings of campus groups. Formal debates
would be held in this room.
A suggested feature is a women's gymnasium. Under
U.B.C.'s new athletic program, basketball practices and gym
classes have clashed, and the only solution appears to be in
finding more floor space.
This building will form a centre for campus life, and it is
hoped that all groups will find satisfaction in the arrangements.
It is the opinion of many people that one of U.B.C.'s needs is a
closer fellowship between students, which such a centre will
provide.
Cornerstone
To Be Laid
In_May
Present plans call for the Brock
Memorial Building to be built this
summer. It has been decided that
the corner-stone will be laid in May,
during Convocation Week. This will
be part of the 21st Anniversary Celebration of the University.
The Board of Governors has expressed the opinion that the building
will be completed by the start of the
1936-37 session.
Many groups are taking part ln the
campaign. More than $15,000 which
was raised by a group of University
Women and their friends for the construction of a Women's Union Building has been turned over to the Fund
for the Brock Memorial Building.
Other groups are the Alma Mater Society, Alumni Association, Summer
Session, Students and Graduates, The
Faculties of Arts and Science, Applied Science and Agriculture, the
Faculty Women's Association, Board
of Governors and the Senate.
Other Drives
In Past Were
Successful
Once again the personality and selling powers of the U. B. C. student
body are to be called upon for the
carrying out of a great project Past
occasions have shown the competence
and spirit of student campaigners, and
every hope is maintained that the
drive at hand will accomplish its objective with as great zeal and support
as have others previously.
Student spirit was shown in its best
light during the fervid campaign activity of 1923-24, when the University
of British Columbia was boosted bodily from Fairview to its present splendid location. The March From Fair-
view climaxed this stirring movement,
crowning with success the efforts of
University students on the field of
garnering public support.

Associated from the beginning with the University, one of

hospitality whose place it will be impossible to fill. Sorority

UN10NJENTRE
Social   and  Intellectual Hub of Campus Life
While the organization of the Students' Union is as yet problematical,
a study of another Union Building
may give some Indication of its ultimate functions.
Hart House, of Toronto University,
Is one of the most famous Unions in
the world. Some idea of its purpose
is given in the statement of the
founders: ". . . may serve, in the
generations to come, the highest interests of the University by drawing
together into a common fellowship
the members of the several colleges
and faculties, and by gathering into
a true society the teacher and the
student, the graduate and the undergraduate: further, that the members
of Hart House may discover within
its walls the true education that comes
from good fellowship, in friendly disputation and debate ... in music,
pictures, and play . . . and lastly, that
. . , its halls may be devoted to the
task of arming youth with strength
and suppleness of limb, with clarity
(Please turn to page 4)
The youngest daughter of Honorable Justice B. M. Britton, Mrs.
Brock was born in Kingston, Ontario.
She was educated at Queen's University, where her scholastic record,
was brilliant. She had been married
thirty-five years to Dean Brock at
the time of their tragic death last
summer.
The cordial hospitality of the
Brock household was famous. Particularly to the Faculty of Nursing,
they extended the generous use of
their home. Often they entertained
clubs and organizations associated
with the University campus, both at
their residence and at downtown
clubs.
Equally as unstinting was Mrs.
Brock in her personal interest in the
students themselves. Miss Bollert,
Dean of Women, in a warm appreciation of the sympathy and service of
Mrs, Brook to the University, has said,
"No one knows how many students
were able to continue their University work because of her generous
sympathy.'
The Students' Union Building will
be a tribute to two people whose activity and interest have contributed
a large part In the development of
U.B.C. To Mrs. Brock in particular
it is a fitting tribute—to one who
manifested so keen and sincere an
interest in U.B.C. students, and who
looked forward to the time when
there would be a focal point for the
social   activity  of  the  student   body
situated on the campus. Page Four

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1838
KEEP THIS
Today we present what has been described as "The Bible
of the Student Union Building." We have tried to give pertinent facts about Students' Unions in general and our proposed
building in particular. Our idea is to make this supplement a
reference sheet, to be kept, and used in YOUR campaign.
It is to be emphasized, however, that the interior plans of
ihe building are purely tentative. They will be changed if the
occasion arises. A committee is now at work studying the needs
of the student body", and when their report is complete, the final
plans will be drawn up.
The plans as presented embody many ideas whloh are almost sure of incorporation in the structure. So this supplement
can be of use for reference.
A NEED FULFILLED
Despite the magnificent setting of the U.B.C. campus and
the easy liberal atmosphere for which it is famous, there has
always been a certain lack of a central welding spirit among the
student body. Visitors have always noted the fact that there has
been no central point on the campus which served as a hub for
University activities. Thus disorganization and loss of interest
has to some extent always featured University undertakings.
The erection of the Union Building will be of far greater
value than the mere addition of another permanent building to
the campus. It will provide a focal point where U.B.C. life will
centre and where U.B.C. activities will converge. It will effect
a switch in interest from extraneous matters to the University
itself, and will provide what all other colleges consider the core
of their existence • a residential and social unit about which
revolve the affairs of the University.
The Union Building will be a splendid memorial to two
people whose interest and support were so largely extended to
U.B.C.

Past Campaigns
Have Been
Successful
ALAN MORLEY
The Arts students will carry on
their share of the drive under the
leadership of Alan Morley, President
of the A, M. U. S. Class presidents
will oversee the activities of those
members of their year who do not belong to other campus organizations,
and they in turn will be responsible
to Morley.
He has called off plans for an Arts
Open House in order that the energies
of Arts students may be devoted to
the campaign.
(Continued from Page 3)
The Stadium campaign of 1930 offers another glowing picture of student devotion to a cause. Here again
campaign days disrupted routine and
provided times of feverish and ex«
cited action, which finally culminated in the arrangements to create the
Stadium.
Memories of these days arise when
the prospect of the present drive is so
near at hand. Surely the traditional
U. B. C. energy and faith manifested
so splendidly in the past will show itself again—dormant perhaps, at slack
intervals, but strong and vigorous as
ever, when it is needed to gain an objective.
Dean Brock Had
Long Career
(Continued from Page S)
to take personal interest in. en individual and give valuable advice.
His outstanding successes   in   tht
field of Geology caused the British
War Office to request him to undertake the geological mapping of the
Island of Hongkong, a work which
he carried on at intervals for about
ten years until its completion ln 1933.
In recognition for this work, the University of Hongkong conferred upon
him its honorary degree of LID. At
this time he was also made an honorary member of the eGological Society of China.
He was very active in scientific organizations. Up until tht time ot his
death in July, 193S, he was the Dean
of the Faculty of Applied Science of
the University ot B. C, Chairman ot
the Vancouver Harbor Board and
President of the Royal Society of
Canada. He has also been Vice-president of the American Society for the
Advancement of Science, Geological
Secretary of the International Geological Congress, Royal Commissioner
for the Frank landslide of 1903, and
British Government Geologist of
Hongkong.

New Structure For
21st Anniversary
NOTICE
There will be a separate meet-
Ing of all classes at 12:15 today
to organize for tht Brock Memorial Building Drive. Science
classes will meet tn their respective drafting rooms. For
Arts class meetings see notice
boards. Aggies' time and place
will be on Aggie notice board.
Every student must attend
these meetings.
It is fitting that this year, the 21st
of the University's existence, should
be marked by the beginning of construction on another permanent building for the campus.
Greater significance is given the
fact that the University has come of
age with the creation of a structure
which will increase and centralize
campus interest*.
More and more U.B.C. is losing the
look of youth and rawness. The Brock
Memorial will go far towards giving
the campus that dignity and permanence it is hoped it will develop in
further years.
WOMEN'S HALL
CALLED FOR IN
ORIGIN^ PLAN
WATTED MANY YEARS
FOR CONSTRUCTION
OF BUILDING
Tht Union Building project started
as a campaign for a Women's Union
Building, tl was thought that, since
every University had a Union Building, and since their presence was so
beneficial to campus life, such a
building would be a desirable feature
for U.B.C. Most universities have
one for men and one for women, but
it was felt that, times being what
they are, it was better to build a
combined building than merely one
for women, and one for men later.
Tht Idea originated with a group
of women students In 1928. They felt
that a building was needed as a social
centre for women, and put on a number of Varsity functions to further
their purpose. They were preparing
to' start a campaign for funds when
the business depression caused them
to shelve their plan* for a few year*.
But the Women's Undergrad kept on
holding functions such as the Co-ed
and donated the proceeds to the fund
which had been established for furnishing. This fund was added to
each year and is now close to $10,000.
Last year it was decided to build
a Students' Union Building instead of
a Women's Union Building. When
the Board of Governors and the Senate met to draw up plans for a 21st
anniversary celebration, several projects were suggested, and they decided that the university would benefit from this campaign. A committee
was appointed for the purpose, and
work has gone on steadily ever since.
