Preparations are being made for a

This Is not th* occasion for the

appendages should arouse little embarrassment.
The attendance ot freshmen is compulsory. Their presence wnl be verified. Men ot other years will be

do they not answer letter* addressed

Meetings Of Institute
Arranged For Every
Saturday Evening
CIP, Winnipeg, October 2.—In a statement issued by the
Investigation committee of the Manitoba Students' Union on
Tuesday, September 27, the students of this university were
advised to pay their tuition fees forthwith, at the present increased status (a flat increase of fifty dollars) as it was appar-
j ent there would be no reduction in university tuition fee rates.
Owing to the fact that the Students' Union were prevented,
apparently by political strategy, from obtaining any immediate
action or even satisfactory statement*, quately justified  by  any statement
regarding the dradic increase from
the Board of Governors of the unlverdty and the provlncid government the committee felt   that   the
dudent* were forced to comply.
Official Statement
The general opinion ot the dudent*
concerning the second  increase  in
fee* wu expressed by John S. Anderson, preddent   ot the   Manitoba
Student*' Union in his official statement.
When, early in September oi this
year, the dudents invedigating committee wrote to both the Provincial
Government and the Board of governors of the University demanding
either satisfactory statements explaining the sudden increase In tuition tees, or an Immediate reduction
of the same, the replies received were
found to be contradictory.
Thus it was apparent to the student investigating committee that
someone was evading the truth.
Evade Issue
Further communication between the
Student Council, the Government and
the Board of Governors reveded the
fact that the latter two were evading
the issue and had carried the question into entirely new ground.
'In concludon we mud inform the
dudents," continued the statement,
"that the increased fees must be paid.
Many, no doubt, anticipated this
statement, but the committee do not
recommend this with conviction, for
their investigation has reassured them
that the increase in fees is not ade-

Might it not be suggested that the
Government, unlike the student
body, has failed to "keep faith with
the Unlveralty?"
The increased tuition fees must be
paid. But the work of the Investigation Committee of the U. M. S. U.

New Assistants
In Economics
And German
At an extraordinary general meeting of the Board of Governors on
Friday evening, September 30, it was
decided to increase the number of
Staff Assistants by five. Four are
to be appointed in the Department
of Economics—two in Accountancy,
and two in Statistics, and one is to
be appointed in the Department of
Modern Languages, as an Assisant
in German.
Miss Dyer, who was formerly In
the Department of Modern Languages lad year, won a Teaching Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, and is at preesnt there, working
towards a Doctor's Degree. Mrs.
Royce, of the same department, who
came here several years ago after
taking her M.A. Degree in California,
has been reappointed assistant.
The names of the new assistants
appointed will probably be announced
at the end of the week, and may be
published in the Friday issue of The
Honorary Degree
For Ambassador
At the special congregation to be
held on Thursday, October 6, Hon.
Herbert Marler, Canadian Minister to
Japan, wiU receive an honorary LL.
D.  degree from the University.
Mr. Marler will speak to tiie gathering but the subject of his address has
not yet been announced.
Mr. Marler is a Canadian, born in
Montreal and the son of Judge W.
de M. Marler. He is a graduate of
McGill'in Arts and Law. In 1929 he
was appointed Canadian Minister to
Japan, the first to represent Canada
in the Orient.
This will be the first congregation
at which the general public wiU be
given preference over the students.
Preddent Klinck and those in charge
of the ceremony have taken this move
for two reasons. They feel it Is to the
interests of all to bring the public of
Vancouver In closer contact with the
University. Then, too, owing to the
ertreme importance of business relations with Japan, especially to Vancouver, Mr. Marler's address witt be
of great interest to the budness and
civic officials of this city.
University officials would like students te cooperate with the faculty
and the public by being present on
the campus to welcome Mr. Marler
during the procesdon to the Auditorium. A few students will be aUow-
ed Into the Auditorium if there are
any vacant seats left after the public
has been accomodated.
Water Contest!
It is absolutely compulsory for every Freshman to attend the Cairn
Ceremony on Friday, Oct.
7, at 8 a.m.
This Ceremony will take
place on the Mall opposite
the Main Entrance to the
Science Building.
The Frosh-Soph water polo contest
last week did not fail to come under
the watchful eye of Mr. Kodak. Here
are members of the two lower classes fighting it out in three or four feet
of Lily Pond water while the bullfrogs in the pool sit on their cast-
iron lily-pads and patiently wait for
the turmoil to cease. At the moment
this picture was taken five unfortunates were enjoying the cool and refreshing waters of the library lake.
M.U.S. President
Greets Frosh
Vic Rogers, president of the. Men's
Undergraduate Society, addressed a
meeting of freshmen on Monday, advising them as to the place and date
of the two frosh receptions to be
held this month. The annual frosh
reception is to be held on the fourteenth at the Arena Auditorium, at
which all freshmen wearing the regulation beret and placard will be admitted free. The "smoker" which
this year replaces the usual initation ceremony, is to take place this
Friday night, the seventh. The president, in announcing this, called for
volunteers who could play the banjo
or saxophone, etc., to help entertain
on that occasion. Severd names

Cooking for Mahatma Gandhi was perhaps the most interesting experience she related in her interview with the Ubyssey.

It was there she met Mahatma

often served with salads and fruit desserts concocted by Miss Osterhout.
Included in her daily routine was the
warming of the famous goat's milk
which has more than once reached
the front page of every newspaper
in the world. Contrary to newspaper
reports Gandhi's goat never set hoof

The Mahatma, "Bapu" to his followers, arose at 4:00 a.m. every
morning and there followed fifteen
minutes of prayer, with his band of
native attendants. At five o'clock
he set out for his morning stroll,
usually accompanied by some of the
students from the Hail. The route
lay along the embankment of an
Eadslde canal, the closest thing to
real nature that could be had in
London. As winter came on with
more rain, fog, and darkness, Gandhi changed his morning walk to safer
quarters as he did not relish the
thought of slipping down the cut into
muddy water.
On these "before the dawn" drolls
Miss Oderhout had many informal
talks with him and said he was quite
willing to answer any questions put
to him.

The offer of the Musical Society to obtain a block of seats
for the coming concert of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
and the appearance on the University stage of Allard de Ridder
should do much to stimulate interest in music as a cultural factor. The reduced price should appeal to students who are, from
all reports, peculiarly impecunious this year.
The Musical Society is to be congratulated on the way in
which they have consistently given the students a chance to
learn something of the universal language of music.
Mr. de Ridder himself has done much for the cause of
music on the Pacific Coast. Coming from the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, he needs no further recommendation to
the initiated. Vancouver has been fortunate indeed in obtaining his charm and enthusiasm, and the students of this institution of much-touted higher learning should need no urging
to hear him speak tomorrow.  The fact remains that they do.
The University should be the cultural centre of the community, but if past experience is anything to go by, the students
have not yet become members of the University, they are only
students.   They are stUl afraid of being called 'high-brow.'
Now symphony is not high-brow. You students who have not
attended a concert of this nature are afraid you won't be able to
enjoy it. The Ubyssey's advice is go and find out. If you don't
enjoy yourself there is something fundamentally wrong with
your aesthetic temperament.

be grand to actually have that somewhat eludve score down in black and

To Speak On
King Tut
Mr. S. P. K. Glanville, M.A., Assistant Keeper of Egyptian and Assyrian antiquities in the British Museum, will address dudents on Tutankhamen, Wednesday afternoon, at
3:00 o'clock In Applied Science 100.
Mr. Glanville la travelling under the
auspices of the National Council of
Education, and his flrd lecture In
Vancouver wiU be at the University.
One of Mr. GianvUle's hobbies is
the popularization of Egypt. He has
given many lectures on the subject,
frequently to children and adolescents, and his success with this type
of audience attests his ability to
avoid 'Undue technicalities.
Mr, Glanville was educated at
Marlborough College, and at Lincoln
CoUege, Oxford. During his second
year at the University, he spent much
of his leisure studying Greek Vases
under J. D. Beazley and thus discovered an attraction to archaeology
which finally decided his career.
From Exford he went out to Egypt
a* a schoolmaster in the government
service. He resigned his post at the

part in the Egypt Exploration Society's excavations at el-Amarneh. It

Now that things are more or less organized and running
smoothly, it is time for the executives of the various campus
organizations to start work on their budgets for the year.
When considering these nasty little things that can cause
so much worry, executives should take some cognizance of
the following things. First, despite the increase in registration reported in this issue, the number of students paying Alma
Mater fees is still considerably lower than was the case, last
year. This means retrenchment.
Any society that is not considering a general scaling down
of expenses cannot be alive to the facts. If the actual executive
itself does not minimize the proposed expenditures, it is quite
safe to say that Council will. It is worth a little time and thought
to cut out those things which are known to be pleasant but
bordering on the unnecessary, rather than have a body of
students, who cannot know the individual problems of the
societies they govern, cut out what they think can be most
easily dispensed with.
Second, the sooner budgets are in the hands of Council,
the sooner will they be passed. Needless to say that means, that
the formulation of definite plans can be got under way at an
earlier date.
Third, executives should remember that no purchases can
be made without a requisition, and that in the case of a cash
advance, all expenditures for amounts greater than twenty-
five cents, must be supported by receipts.
disciplinarians apparently do not re
alize the difficulties which rhymes
ters face, nor recognize the legality
of poetic license.

Sex Note
I notice a small note slipped, I
don't know why,' under the "Ten
Years Ago" section, indicating the
predominance of women over men
on an American collegiate paper. The
title would seem to suggest that this
is a deadly state of affairs. In that
case, the Ubyssey has nothing to fear
for the present, at least, since the
masthead shows a masculine majority. That masthead, however, is rather a moveable affair, especially at
this time of year, so conclusions
drawn from its statistics cannot be
called sound just yet.

his stay? It would be Intereding to
get the comparison to those taking
place on the campus; I'm sure they
are not nearly so exciting. At lead,
the revolution end can't be. And
civil war tjiere must be getting almost as monotonous as It is here,
what with frosh and sophomores
holding daily debacles over the heads
of those unfortunate frogs (I knew
how It would be; one of them Is gone
now, perhaps never to return).
But revolutions, now. I think
U.B.C. students at their peak can
beat any Oriental spectacle going.
Yet it all seems to come out right in
the end, and next year it's all to do
again about something quite new,
One wonders what it will be this
year. Having lately quite thorougn-
ly attended to the Senate, the Board
of Governors, and the president, we
ought to turn our attention to something really big. I suggest that we
put on a great campaign against the
tyranny of the Caf; down with trays;
lobster salad, every day! How about
a petition against cutting down on
the grant of French fried potatoes?
That Campaign
Seriously speaking, though, I have
faint memories left over from last
year of some sort of campaign to
make the public university-conscious.

already?     And   that   sets

omitted from the handbook this year,
reminding those in attendance that,
under bylaw 18, the society was
given charge of arranging all men's
social functions, which are to take
place on Friday night. Bylaw 19
states that no Intoxicating liquors

group on "The Social Principles of
Jesus and Practical Projects in Applying Them" In connection with the
S.C.M. study group program.

Varsity Defeats Westminster in First Game
Henderson Scores Only Touchdown of Game
In Second Quarter—Blue and Gold Squad
Withstand Sensational Aerial Attack in
Last Canto—Line and Backfield Turn
In Good Records
With all of the "wise money" bet against them, Dr. Gordon
Burke's inexperienced and untried Canadian gridders caused
the most sensational upset of the 1932 Big Four season by presenting the hignly-praised New Weatminater team with a 6-1
defeat at Athletic Park Saturday afternoon.
The Blue and Gold Grid machine made up lor its lack of
experience by playing with an enthusiasm and team spirit never
before excelled at U.B.C.  As a team and individually the boys
showed the reran* ot th* relentless
coaching of Doc Burke and Jack
Com during the ted two weeks by
holding an experienced team to a lone
point .and withstanding a withering
aerld attack in the lad quarter to
capture a popular victory.
Til* Vardty line-work was smooth
and effetclve both on offendve and
defendve play. Although they fdied
to score any fird downs against New
Westminster's team, the Blue and
Oold Un* held their opponents from
making yard* In the third quarter
with but ten yarda to go for a
touchdown. The backfield worked
Uke Trojans running back punts and
cutting right and left on line plays
to make yardage; while Farrington
and CoUin* in the end positions left
nothing to be desired. As quarterbacks Root and Bolton, both of last
year's team, directed plays like veterans.
The Royd City crew attempted
eighteen forward passes and completed three for a total gain of 65
yards. Varsity attempted two and
made one for 5 yards.
Play for the first quarter was very
close with no advantage for either
team. In the second canto Doc
Burke sent in five new men and the
opposing backs began a kicking duel.
On a long kick "by EUett and a fumble by the crimson back, Varsity secured to make it first and ten on the
Westminster 15-yards line. On the
first down Henderson went through
for five yards. On the next play,
with the right end blocked, he cut
through middle and plunged across
for the only touch of the game.
Keith Hedreen converted and half
time found the count 6-0 In favor
of Vardty.
In the third quarter New West-
minster pressed and scored one point
when Rich kicked to the deadline.
With the score 6-1 agalnd them In
the find quarter, Westminder started an aerial attack that kept the ball
in the air mod of the time on forward passes. After four incompleted
passes the Crimson team gained 20
yards by the aerial route only to
lose possession.
With five minutes left to play New
Westminster gained the ball on the
Vardty 26-yard line and made first
downs. When camped on the U.B.C.
10-yard line they lod possession.
The game ended In mld-fleld with
Varsity in possession of the ball, and
the ball game.

Draw 3-all
At Cambie
At last striking something Uke last
season's form, Vardty Senior Soccer
team obtained their first point in the
standings on Saturday at Cambie
Street, by drawing, 3-3, with Chinese
The game was a fast contest, which,
although rough and ragged at times,
produced flashes of good football.
Varsity obtained the first goal, and
appeared to have the game in hand
when they held a two goal lead in
the second hdf, but the Chinese
scored twice to tie things up again.
Varsity kicked off against a strong
sun, and for a few minutes, were
held on the defensive by the speedy
Orientals, When they findly weathered the first attack, and assumed the
offendve they gave the Chinese defence a busy time ,and forced several corners. After a number of
chances had been missed, Munday
opened the scoring for Varsity after
a snappy short pasdng attack.
Varsity continued on the attack
from the kick off, but after attempts
by Dave Todd and Kozoolin had
failed the Chinese began to bother
the Blue'and Gold defence, and McGill and Costain were called on to
make several fine clearances. Play
then returned to the Oriental goalmouth, where Munday was unlucky
in hitting the post with a fine shot.
Shortly after this, Costain charged a
Chinese forward heavily, and a penalty was awarded. This, however,
was missed by Home Yip of the
Chinese squad. The Students continued to force the play, playing a
typical kick and rus.» game, and
five minutes before the half ended
another penalty was given, this time
for hands. Jack Soon made no mistake this time, tying the score with
a shot Inside the post. The half ended at 1-all.
Play in the second half was even
for some time, with Varsity finally
breaking away to take the offensive.
Fifteen minutes after the kick-off,
Laurie Todd tricked two men and
went through to put the collegians
ahead once more. The Orientals returned to the Varsity end and forced
several corners, but all were finaUy
cleared. Play returned to the Chinese
goal mouth where Bud Cooke snared
the ball In a scramble, and scored
Varsity's third goal. The advantage
was short-lived, however, as Quene
Yip tore through the Varsity defence
a minute later to score the Chinese'
second goal, and once more put them
within striking distance. Varsity
struggled hard to increase the margin, and dominated the play for
some time, but could not tally agdn.
With five minutes to go, the ball
went up to Jack Soon, who was
waiting in an off-side position, and
he broke BWBy to tie the score.
Neither team was able to score in the
remaining five minutes.
The whole Varsity squad showed
much improvement over their display of the previous Saturday. Tlie
forward line was shifted around from
We print below pictures of three of the veterans of Varsity
grid warfare, boys who were "in there" all the time last
Saturday and undoubtedly lent that stability to the team which
brought them victory.
But to me, the real stars of the game were
those freshmen and sophomores who were under
Big Four fire for the first time Saturday. George
Henderson, who careened and swerved his way
through to the first Varsity touchdown of tile year;
'Reg. Ellett, who comes direct from Prince of
Wales High School with his fine tackling and
heavy kicking; and Frankie Rush, grinning sophomore who used
to go around English Rugby .ends at Kitsilano High School. Inset shows Frankie in one of his more serious moments, when he
was guiding the athletic destinies of Arts '35.
And here's Gordie "Scoop" Root, who bandies tongue-
lashings with the Great Straight through their
several news mediums. But on Saturday it was a
case of "all kidding aside" for Root, and Ihe husky
ex-crooner went through tiie opposing line with
the ease with which one can go through one of hla
famous 95-word leads. A recent trip to Seattle la
said to have done wonders for Gordie's game, as
he learned several new maneuvers while in the
Sound City.
Varsity Leads 12-5 at Half Time—Ken Mercer Scores Twice — Spectacular 50-yard
Run by Chris Dalton
After piling up a lead of 12-5 in the first half against the
North Vancouver All-Blacks, Varsity English Ruggers dropped
their opening fixture of the season by a score of 18-12 on Saturday afternoon at Brockton Point.
Notwithstanding their defeat, the Blue and Gold aggregation, piloted by Art Mercer, showed considerable form, and
should, with more practice, be a real threat in the Tisdall Cup
Series this season.
Freddie Bolton alternated with Root at the signal-calling
job and tied the opposition up time and again with his variety
of plays. Freddie got in front of about 200 pounds
of man-muscle in the third quarter and had to
be carried off the field. The plucky Sclenceman
didn't care for that at all and on the way in shouted "I'm all right, Doc, let me go in." In the crucial
moments of the last quarter Freddie was back
in the play and his field generalship steadied the
rookies and pulled them out of more than one hole.
As predicted, Dougie Mclntyre catapulted his 130 pounds
through the opposing line time and again for big
gains. Dougie was just one big headache to the
New Westminster gang and even his old pal
"Truck" McDonald couldn't stop him. Doug, is
business-like off the field but when he's on he's
even more so. Doug's long suit is catching and returning punts, as anyone who saw the last Western
Intercollegiate Championship game will testify.
We'll see him in action Thanksgiving Day when Varsity takes
on the tough V.A.C. aggregation.
This talk of knockouts and "grid warfare" reminds me of
the one about the know-it-all who said that football was becoming too "sissy."
"Oh yeah?" asked one of the players. "Let me tell you
something, son. The other day we were practising out at the
field and the Dean came over.
" 'Coach/ he asked, 'Who's been eating grapes out here
on the football field?'
'Those aren't grapes, sir,' the coach replied, 'Those are
eyes from Saturday's game.'"
Nice boys, these football players!

The North Shore boys pressed hard
and forced Varsity behind their own
twenty-five, but Cleveland relieved
with a fine kick. Ken. Mercer obtained possession from the loo** and
passed to Leggat who broke away
for what appeared to be a certain
try until referee Murray Rowan
called him back for being offside.
With the play hovering around mid-
field, the Blue and Oold threes
handled nicely, giving the leather to
fleet-footed Chris Dalton who made
a beautiful fifty-yard wing run for
tlie second try of the game. Cleveland failed to add the additional
points. The ball was no sooner in
play again, when on a pass trom
Leggatt, Ken. Mercer slid over to
boost tne Varsity total to nine points.
Cleveland made a fine attempt to

smooth working formation. AU the
goals scored were well-placed shots,
and were the results of good combination. The defence seemed to be
in much better shape than last week,
and showed little evidence of tiring.
The newcomers to the squad. Rus-
sel Stewart and Hughie Smith, both
turned in creditable games. Laurie
Todd was once more the outstanding
forward, his goal being a beautiful
effort. McOiU was the pick of a
hard working defence which made
few slips.

the highest number of points. With

discus champion, competing as a
Frosh for Varsity, won his chosen
event with a toss of 118 feet, and
then came back to take a close second In the shot-put. Out-classed In
the 100, Max Stewart, genial Track
President, won the furlong handily
from A. Collier of New Westminster
in 24 2-5. In the broad jump, U.B.C.
took first and second place, Heron
getting the call over Little with a
leap of 19 ft. 6 in.
The best race of the day, excepting perhaps the 100, was the mile
run, in which Alfie Allen and Herb.
Barclay placed one two, for the University. Taking the lead from the
gun, Barclay soon strode to the
front, with Allen at his heels. Running easily, despite his lack of
training, Barclay led by 10 yards at
the end of the second lap. At this
point, Foster of the Y. challenged,
but Barclay and Allen simply put
on the steam, and Foster fell back.
Rounding the curve, Allen dug his
flying spikes Into the cinders, and
breezed past Herb., to win by twenty
feet, running away. Timed in the
good time of 4.50., Alfie could easily
have cut this down to 4.45., if he had
extended himself.
Other Varsity trackmen competing
were Stott, Francis and Crothall in
the sprints, and Oeorge Allen in the
