One Point Victory Leaves Vanity Team Outlined Enthusiastic Student Body Vote* $10,000
Close Behind Meralomas Dr. Glow Uud* Cmim To Push Proposed Scheme
VARSITY emerged front an epic rugby buttle with u one point margin
over X-KIng Oeorge in Saturday's Miller Cup fixture, at Brockton
Point. X-Kings' form wns 100 per cent better than Inst week when
they defeated Ex-Tech, but the U.B.C. fifteen turned in its best performance of the season, and it was just too bad for the West End Club.
Varaity (oat the toss and kicked off against the sun. The team was
unchanged from the last game, except that Gaul and Mercer '.'hanged places
in the three-quarter line.   The Blue and Gold players controlled the play
for the first twenty minutes, show-' 	
ing form that makes the Miller Cup
loom larger in the eyea of Varsity
rugby fans. Ellis appeared nervous
and missed several passes.
After about ten minutes Varsity
nearly scored from a loose scrum, but
a two bit kick gave X-Kings another
chance. The U.B.C. squad came right
back and after one or two runs was
awarded a penalty which Bud Murray hoisted over the bar from near
the sideline 40 yards out, making tbe
score 3-0.
Mercer and Cleveland showed the
world how to play the kick and follow
up game, foiling many Green and
Black attacks. On one occasion.
Cleveland scooped up the ball at full
speed, dodged two opponents, kicked
thirty yards and nailed the rival fullback before he could got rid of the
Just about this time, Phil Barratt
carved out for himself a niche of
fame when he drop-kicked a perfect
field goal from 80 yards out and ten
from the side line. When the shouting died down, the score board showed
Varsity 7, King George 0.
From this point on the teams ap-
«oared exceptionally well balanced,
araity had a slight advantage in
heeling out of the scrum but the X-
King threes, particularly Rowan and
Aivazoff, always gained yards before
dragged down. Both three-quarter
lines ran well but fierce tackling
blocked every play. Niblo opened the
scoring on the X-King side of the
ledger by kicking a penalty goal from
30 yards out.
Bert Barratt, behind the U.B.C.
scrum showed himself a good general
and quickly adapted himself to the
chances of the game. His passes
were speedy and accurate.
Bud Murray was in every play,
tackling in spectacular style. Estabrook broke through the King George
defense and with only the fullback
to beat, hesitated and was overhauled.
X-Kings sent the play back deep into
U.B.C. territory with a long kick.

Noon Hour Concert
The first of this term's series of
noon hour recitals met with distinct
success on Thursday in the Auditorium, The contributing artists drawn
from University and outside talent
presented a program of an exceedingly high standard. Dr. MacDonald, in
a short introductory sketch, spoke of
the aims and the value of the society
in university life, and urged the students to support it in the work it is
George Holland of Arts '32 played
two splendid accordeon numbers —
"Light Cavalry" and "Verona." He
performed with his usual skill and
was well received.
Max Humphrey, a member of Arts
'33, sang two songs, "Rendez Vous,"
and "Kashmiri." He has a good baritone voice and sang very well.
Mr. M. Miles, director of the Point
Grey School of Music, played two
violoncello selections, "Largo Allegro,"
from Marcello's Sonata in "F," and
"Berceuse" from Jocelyn. Both selections were much appreciated by the
Katherlne Reid sang, with good
enunciation and interpretation, two
delightful songs for soprano, "Cleopatra's Nile," and "Reome in Gergio."
Lastly, Marjorie Cornell played
"Sonatina in G Major," by Scarlotti,
and "March of the Dwarfs." Both
numbers were rather difficult, but her
performance was splendid.
It was hoped by the appreciative
audience that another recital will be
forthcoming in the near future.
A lone goal scored by D. Todd early in the second half sufficed to give
the Varsity Senior Soccerites a 1-0
victory over South Hill at Wilson
Park Saturday. The students just
about deserved their margin and thus
chalked up their second successive
Varsity attacked early in the first
half and penned South Hill into its
own half. The veteran backs held
however, and the collegians never got
a clear shot. Broadhurst blazed away
twice, but his aim was wide. The
opposition turned the tide and came
cfose to scoring as the ball caromed
off Chalmers over tbe bar. The Varsity team as a whole had not settled
down, Cooke in particular being decidedly off color. Nevertheless the
Gold and Blue forwards forced the
play, but Costain's final shot was
charged down,

44ff wus the Christian Church that
■ offered the one real challenge to
•the Roman system," stated Dr. T.
R. Glover, Public Orator of Cambridge, in his lecture on "The Roman
Empire" delivered in the Auditorium
on October 0, at 4 p.m.
This lecture was the fourth in   a
series on "The World of    the    New
Testament," and Dr. Glover opened by
outlining the other three.    The first
IwaB "What the Greek did    for   the
i Human Mind"; the second "The Dif-
| ference that Alexander    the    Great
j Made in the Whole Course of Human
Thought," creating a new world al-
I most as Columbus did, and "altering
the habits of mind of all mankind ex-
I cepting the Chinese and the Siwaah;"
and the third "Rome and the Character of the Romans."
Rome with her huge and widely
scattered empire composed of peoples
differing greatly In every possible
way had a problem similar to that of
Great Britain with India today. Without telegraphs or steam, she united
under one government, in a universal
peace, the great civilized peoples of
the ancient world in a way which will
probably never be equalled. In the
words of Livy, "It was more, almost,
by sparing the conquered than by conquering that Rome made her empire."
The Republican System was flexible
and wise in many ways, but it placed
too much power and responsibility in
the hands of a few officials. The resultant concentration of wealth and
power waa followed by an inevitable
decline in moral standards The provinces were being exploited by adventurers, and population was decreasing.
Then came Caesar, who "has done
more for mankind than    any    other
ruler  except  Alexander."    Ho  made
Gaul Roman, and remodelled Rome itself, one of his greatest achievements
being the adjustment of the Roman
calendar.     To   the   horror   of   the
Romans, he admitted the Gauls to the
Senate,  and  the    following    couplet
might have been seen posted in the
streets  of  Rome:
"Caesar led the Gauls in triumph,
To the Senate House he led;
And tho Gauls took off their trousers,
And put the Toga on instead."
Under Caesar the world know great
peace and prosperity, accompanied
milttnilly by an increased commercial
and cultural intercourse between the
different peoples. The things that
eventually led to the decline in Rome's
moral fibre and intelligence were tbe
over-organization of her civil service,
and the fact that slavery wns still the
heart of everything.
Despite these drawbacks, Dr.
Glover pointed to Rome's period of
greatness and the Victorian Age in
England as "the two Golden Ages of

AMID scenes of enthusiasm which have seldom been equalled since the
campaign days In Fairview the Alma Mater Society pledged itself, by
a unanimous vote, to raise $10,000 toward the cost of a stadium on the
University campus at a meeting In the Auditorium Friday.
Approximately $6.00 from each student will realixe the objective.   A
Retition, signed by the requisite number, has called for a special  Alma
later meeting to be held a week from next Friday in order to authorise
the collection of the money with the second term's fees.   If the students
i i support this method and the Board
of Governors is favorable, the $10,000
will be collected automatically.
The routine work of a semi-annual
Alma Mater meeting was quickly despatched. Reports of the Secretary
and Treasurer were adopted. The
policy of Council, as sketched by Hutchison, is practically the same as that
followed last year.   It provides*.
(1) For the continuation of the
Honor System and the work of the
Discipline Committee.
(2) For the re-appointment of
Henderson as Business Manager of
the Society, and for strict functioning of the requisition system.
(3) That Council supply full equipment for all major teams, and that
the usual deposit for uniforms be
(4) For the use of the gymnasium
for dances and games in an effort to
centralise the social life of the students on the campus.
(5) For continuation of last year's
practice of "rigid economy," and for
the inclusion of the accounts of the
Publications Board and the Men's Undergraduate Society in the general
financial system.
Don Hutchison outlined the work
which was done by Council during the
summer and the steps yet needed If
U.B.C. is to have a stadium. The
City Council, the Parks Board, and
the Olympic Committee were the
guests of the Students' Council on the
campus one afternoon. After lunch
they inspected the natural amphitheater adjacent to the present playing field and were favorably impressed. The City Council, however, Is
diffident about investing a large
amount of money in land over which
they have no control. That and not
the site itself, Hutchison explained,
was the stumbling-block. If the stu-
i dents quickly raise the $10,000 this
move will do a great deal toward
■ overcoming that objection.

Men's Athletics, and a member of

Ends in Defeat
Winning the trophies for highest
total score in both men's and women's
events, the University of Alberta carried off the laurels of Saturday's intercollegiate track meet at Edmonton.
' Bob Alpen of the University of
British Columbia came first in the
pole vault but just failed in an attempt to set a new record. He vaulted
10 feet 4 inches.
Besides this first, three thirds
were made by U. B. C. Alpen came
third in the shot-put. Thornber in
the high jump, and Gansner in the 3-
The most spectacular performance,
according to Leo Gansner, who officially represented the University of
British Columbia, was that of Harold
McMahon from Saskatchewan. This
distance runner lowered the mile
record in the morning from 4.40 to
4.35, and in the afternoon surprised
everyone by bringing the 3 mile
record down from 10-13 to 16-7 1/5.
Frank Richards of Alberta won the
men's individual championship after
exhibiting great proficiency in the
sprints and jumps. He was a member of the Canadian squad at the
recent British Empire games. Ethel
Barnett, also of Alberta, won the
women's aggregate trophy.
There was a close race for points
between Alberta and Manitoba, Alberta coming out victorious by 60 to
50. Saskatchewan earned 26 and
British Columbia 8.

Fa3t charging Meraloma bucks laid
waste a wilting Varsity line in the
second half of the catastrophe that
dimmed the hopes of the University
supporters when the lads in orange
boosted out a 21-11 victory Saturday
afternoon at Athletic Park. Varaity
played like a championship team in
the flrst half and outplayed the
Kitsilano aggregation 11-10.
Dauntless Dirom played havoc with
the Meraloma line in a march down
the field, scoring the first touchdown
of the game. He crashed through
consistently to the opposition's disgust and  made numberless yarda.
A brilliant aerial attack bewildered
the Meralomas in the first spaam, but
fumbles lost the game for the Gold
and Blue. Chodat fumbled and the
premier touch for the Meralomas went
over the line. Latta scored with a
pretty field goal and made the point

In a recent edition uf one of the city's Sunday newspapers there
appeared an article entitled, "B. C. firemen need the {rood old
Golden Rule days." Perhaps they do, but need their training necessarily be given under the auaplciei of the University of B. C. ?
We agree that the course would well warrant its adoption—but
so would many other courses which have been put forward for
yeara as necessary to the curriculum of the university, especially Household Science.
For years prominent women of the city have advocated the
establishment of such a course at U.B.C. Campaigns of speech
and letter have aroused public interest in the idea, but still
women of B. C. who wish to specialize in Home Economics of
necessity have to leave the Province to finish their education.
Many people are under the impression that the Household
Science course is offered in the curriculum this session, but nothing appears in the calendar regarding instruction, and to all appearances the course stands as it did last year. To our knowledge no definite instructors for the course have been appointed,
and there are as yet no signs of rooms being equipped where
the students of Domestic Science may obtain practical work in
the household arts.
The tendency of universities on this continent is to an increasing variety of courses. The youth who dreams of success in the
business world can come to "university" for a commerce course,
so why should not the maiden Interested in the culinary arts also
be able to receive instruction from the seat of higher learning? However, the line must be drawn somewhere, and we hope
this will be done before a University course on the science of
fire-flghting is started. A more fitting place for such training
would be the technical school or a special firemen's college sponsored by the City.
Every week the Publications Board receives dozens of newspapers from other colleges and universities situated at various
distances, ranging from New Zealand to the neigboring University of Washington. Twice every week the Exchange Editor
must peruse these papers for items of news which might prove
of interest to U, B. C. students. What a task! Much of this
exchange news, such as reports on rugby games or club meetings, is of purely local interest. Many of these papers, especially those of American universities, contain news of the surrounding community regarding politics, theatres, etc. Then
again many of the items which would be of interest to U. B. C.
students are in long form, and must be condensed to suit the
purpose of the "Ubyssey." But worst of all, the exchange news
which eventually does appear in the Varsity paper invokes such
comments as 'dry exchange," or "merely to fill up space."
The fact that the Exchange task is a difficult one i:, not the
fault of the University papers which the Publications Board receives, but of the unappreciative and uninterested student body
of U. B. C.
A week ago there appeared in the "Ubyssey" correspondence column a letter from a Senior, giving the impression that
one student at least reads the exchange news. As yet no student has been ambitious enough to reply to this epistle—but
perhaps this lack of response leads to another discouraging query
—namely, what per centage of the student body peruse the correspondence column?
The Editor receivec, considerable correspondence that ia not published, consisting of pencnml and non-controversial
comnniniciitioiiH, circular*), etc. All letters expressing atudent opinion are, of
course, printed if signed by tbe writers.
ln connection with our Htand against

leaders in educational, legal business
and religious fields. Their circular
letter says in part:
"Militarism in Education goes on,
accumulating power and tradition,
aided by War Department money and
resources, prettified by propaganda,
glorified by every device of military
romance, in, literally, hundreds of
American colleges, universities, and
high schools, building that blind, unreasoning, emotional response to military symbols which has so often
swayed and deceived men in a crista."

danger for Varsity. Chalmers, who
has seldom played better, and Roberts
despite an injured ankle, rose to the
occasion. At this period the student
forwards were playing bright football, W right ll spectacular dashes
down the wing thrilling the crowd.
Todd, Costain, and Broadhurst all
tried their luck with shots but good
keeping saved a score. At the other
end the Legion right winger burst
through, but his final shot bounced
off the goalie for a corner which was
well cleared by Buckley. As the
whistle blew the Varsity men were
beating off the last South Hill rally.
For Varsity Chalmers played the
game of his life, some of his second
half clearances being little short of
miraculous, while the kicking of
Roberts in view of his badly wrenched
ankle, was splendid. The halves were
unsteady at first and seemed unable
to control a lively ball; in the second
campaign they settled down and led
by Kozoolin, held a strong forward
line scoreless. "Bunny", the immaculate Wright, was the pick of the
forwads. Cooke was never in the
picture in the initial period but was
more his usual self after the interval. Costain made a good leader and
was Hanked by two clever inside men
in   Broadhurst  and   D.  Todd.
Varsity: McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; II. Wright, Kozoolin, Buckley;
B. Wrijght, Broadhurst, Costain, D,
Todd and Cooke.

Chung Huoy smiled at mo with bis
sardonically cruel countenance, nnd, taking a Hinall golden whistle from bis sleeve,
blew a shrill blast, Immediately a door
behind him o'K'tied, and two villainous-
looking Chinamon, tvirh armed wilh a
wing-jtng, gilded beside me.
"Ho, Hcrlbblcweil, my friend, you jier*
coive that resistance is useless,' Cluing
Suey remarked in honeyed tones, "We
will accordingly proceed to our little
'lab period,' as you might say. You
may perceive that 1 am what is oalled it

I retorted.
For answer, Chang Suey nodded to
his attendants and 1 was borne with
scant ceremony into the o|>ornting room,
laid nt full length on a white-enameled
table and tightly bound band and foot.
"Now, pay close attention," commanded my captor. "This is Big Stuff."
He piokod up a pair of forceps, and
with a dexterous twist of his muscular
wrist, flung them right over his head.
"HahI Not large enough," he remarked
"Before 1 resume my lecture, .Scribble-
well, my Mend," continued the fiend in
oily tones, "1 will favor you with a few
explanations, that you unfortunately will
be unable to convey to your Faculty
Committee on Student Affairs. It u|i-
pears tbat you have attracted the attention, and perhaps the affection, of
the Golden Lotus, wbo is a priestess of
tbe Society of Bunt, my deadly enemies.
Evidently they planned to take you out
of my clutches, but, thanks to my sac-
ret service, they have failed. Incidentally, I might add that I bave taken revenge on tbo esteemed Grand Snard,
who was rather fanatical, and wbo considered you as a worth-while object for
sacrifice or some similar hazing. In fact,
be knew less of an honor system than
even your fellow students."
He paused, and chuckled softly before
be resumed.
"However, mv friend, we will now
come to fun and fundamentals. If vou
turn your bead, you will see what 1
usually call my Crime Machine, some
details of which I have already explained.
I assume tbat you havo kept awako
through Philosophy 1 lectures. I am a
believer in the behaviourist school of
psychology and consider that a predetermined response may be obtained by
the use of certain stimuli, liy this machine I induce a current, 'somewhat
analogous to the nerve current, that can
be applied to tlio brain cent res by means
of a ray that produces an electro-chemical
stimulus wherever I'ociisseil, Do vou
follow nie?"
1 nodded iu honor
"Now you see, my dear Seribbleweil,
it' you can keep awake during one lecture at least, that I can create stimuli
that can break down inhibitions and
work directly upon the subconscious
mind, no that the subject accomplishes
what be is induced to want by the most,
direct moan.—namely, crime. Furthermore, by controlling ihe wants of the
subconscious mind, I can make the subject commit the crime that can benefit
me tbe most, whether it he ioh>>ery, arson or murder."
"You scoundrel!" I exclaimed, "Mul
what if your subject wanted to murder
"Aha, Seribbleweil," Chung Suey cockled,  " Do you  not realize  that  it is a
machine   to   produce   crime,   and   that
killing me would be no crime?   I am jier-
I fectly safe."
1 was silent, stieechlesN at tho diaboli-
I cal ingenuity of the Chinaman.   In horror
I 1 stared at the Crime Machine, that was
' now being wheeled forward  by  the two
, attendants.      lt   consisted   of   a   black,
: box-like apparatus, with a series of lenses in u telescopic lube in one end     Mc-

Since the Frosh and Sophomores got
away with the heinous offense of disregarding the advice of the Faculty Committee us echoed by the dutiful Counoil,
there has been no little talk about "student self-government."
In my opinion, student self-government is merely u feeding-bottle, given to
the undergraduates lo keep them from
becoming a nuisance. Students are allowed to handle sucb of their affairs as
the authorities scorn to control. Student
government is nominal and on sufferance.
According to the constitution, tbe proposals of the Alma Mater Society must
be endorsed by the Faculty Committee
to bo valid. When this is not done the
matter may be taken up before a joint
committee of three memWs of the Students' Council and three of Facility, one
of whom acts as chairman. Decisions of
this committee are considered as joint
decision of the student body and faculty.
It, may annul or amend proposals of the
At first glance this seems to have a
tingo of democracy, but it is specious.
Here is the joker. "A minority of two
members of this committee with tho
consent of the Chairman, may upjieal to
the Senate any decision made by the
committee." It i"* only when one considers how often the .students are likely
to appeal to Senate (alter obtaining tho
consent of the chairman t and what is
Ihe usual attitude of Senate, thut the
force of this provision becomes apparent.
In actuality, tbe students ,tire merely
suffered to amuse themselves by playing
ut self-government. When a group of
students threatens lo offend against the
"little boys should be seen and not
beard" dictum, they usually receive a
little kindly advice and are kept in their
places without difficulty.
Tbo system works very nicely and
every one seems happy, nut tbe term
self-government is a joke.

From the valuable pages of our campus

already thinking of saying good-bye to

ono pleasant thing to leave behind them.
Although any idea, of mine would be,
I fear, too late to affect their decision.
nevertheless 1 think that the classes of

that will assist them in their departure.

For once wc (the Sport Department) must hand the laurel wreath
to Charles Shultx, beloved M.A.A.
president. Personally I never in all
my long years at Varsity heard a
speech quite so gripping, so masterfully delivered as the one he made
at the Alma Mater Society meeting*
last Friday.
The question of a Varsity stadium
was mentioned last year, but we were
Inclined to think it was rather a wild
scheme. However. Charlie thought
differently and he haa been working
on the project ever since. At the end
of last term he entered into negotiations with City Council and incidentally with the denlsens of Heatings
Kant who were under the mistaken
idea that the stadium should be built
there. Although the city at large
doe* not look at the Varsity site
favourably It makes no difference to
As far as that goes we had to Hght
for our very buildings out here. Why
should we not bring the stadium nut
here? It Is the logical place Cor It.
The atudent body as a whole heard
Schults' speech and his appeal. It
la now up to the student body to get
right behind him. The man who
can say, "We wanted a gymnasium, ho
we built one," is worthy of anyone's

Ruggers Foil
Ex-North Van.
Coach Mollmoyte's Senior "B" English Rugby team went forth and
blanked Ex-North Vancouver by two
converted tries at Douglas Park
Saturday afternoon, turning in a 10-0
After changing the field from Memorial Park to Douglas, the game got
under way half an hour late. North-
Van, started to pass for the first few
minutes, but soon play began to be
more equal. Near the end of the flrst
half Nesbltt broke away on a swerving run and after Symons had handled
Henderson went over between the
posts.   Mercer converted.
In the second half the north shore
invaders rarely threatened Varsity.
Several fumbles and missed tackles
might have been serious, but the U.
B. C. squad as a whole showed the results of Mcllmoyle's coaching and
kept the slate blank. The second
score came when Young went over
from the aide of a loose scrum.
Mercer's kick struck the upright and
bounded over for the extra two points.
The scrums were ragged and North
Van got the ball more than the students In the lineouts. The Varsity
thveequarter line functioned very
smoothly. Tye at fullback was sure
on his kicks and tackles. The team:
Tye; C. Cleveland, K. Mercer, Henderson, Nesbltt, Stobie, Gwyre,
Young, Shiels, B. Brown, Symons,
Davidson, H. Brown, Burns (Capt.).
(Continued from Page 1)
Play surged around the halfway
mark until the half was almost ended.
The Barratts, Rogers and Murray
starred for Varsity. Just before the
interval the West Enders went over
near the flag after a beautiful three-
quarter run. Aivazoff missed the convert. Halftime score 7-6 In favor of
The second half was as fierce a battle
as has been waged on the Brockton
Oval for many years. Ellis, who
strained a leg muscle In the first
period, was shifted to inside three,
taking the  place of Estabrook  who
Rroceoded to turn in a sparkling ex-
ibltlon at five-eights.
A spirited attack by the Green and
Black was foiled by Ledingham who
kicked from the Varsity live yard
line after some hectic moments. The
X-King scrum, at this point was getting more than Its share of the heeling and kept the West Enil threes
well supplied. Estabrook gained
yard, on a kick that Kills followed up
with a good dribble,
X-Kings made ilesparate efforts to
score as time got short, but the college defense held. Rowan and Aiva-
xoff broke away but were halted 20
yards from the U.B.C. line. A free
kick from Varsity for feet-up relieved
the danger. The Green und Black
scrum was getting the ball out consistently and X-Kings kept up the
attack. Fierce tackling staved off a
score. Rogers gained many yards by
marking a kick. The final whistle
blew with King George still attacking.
The university team is now only
half a point behind the leading Meraloma outfit which it has yet to play.
The teams: Varsity—Cleveland;
Gaul, Mercer, Estabrook, P. Barratt;
Elllis; B. Barratt, Mason; Murray,
Mitchell, Rogers, Ledingham, Martin,
Maconnachie, Nixon.
Freshmen Frolic
At Frosh
Freshmen und Seniors again joined
hands and danced to the sprightly
tunes of Jack Emerson's Orchestra
at the much maligned Frosh held in
tbe Auditorium, Friday night.
Half way through the proceedings
all the Frosh were herded into one
corner of the arena for no apparent
reason. The next dance was for
Frosh alone but it was really surprising to note the large number of
upper classmen who went back to
childhood for ten minutes.
And then. . . came supper, during
which the revellers feasted on sandwiches, pseudo cake, and a bottled
mixture composed largely of dynamite and water which left noticablc
effects on the imbibers for days.
Upstairs rolled the dervishes to
clutch freshettes frantically from fellow frolleers and in general to make
whoopee In all its form until midnight
and in fact to do the same after midnight.

holding a 1-0 advantage; the superiority, however, war. shortlived, for on
the resumption of play the snappy
Chlvalrist forwards begun to function with alarming accuracy, bringing the packed stands to a roar with

There was a time when the whole
Meraloma outfit passed the Varsity
line and raced the length of the field
only to be stopped by Dirom's brilliant following charge and tackle. The
last two quarters spelt triumph for
the Meralomas on the mispluys made
by Varsity. Chodat's kicks prevented
the collegians from keeping the ball in
