Alice Rowe Gains Applause; Harcourt and
Brooks Also Stand Out in Gay Production
Thundering applause testified to public appreciation oi the
high quality of entertainment offered In the sixteenth production of the University Musical Society when that organitatJon
presented tiie Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, "H.M.S. Pinafore," at the Auditorium, Wednesday night.
Rouging chorum were sung with a gpontaniety and harmony weU suited to their character. The blending of well-
trained voicea produced a whole that waa at once well-rounded
and flexible. The acene of the elopement, with it* hushed
chorus and unity of movement, wag particularly effective.
Alice Howe's pure soprano voice ,P*rt end added much to the humor
gained her the attention and applause
of the moat critical in the audience.
She combined decided musical talent
with a natural stage presence that
made her very attractive In her leading role of JoMphlne.

Harcourt, displayed a fine baritone

listeners beyond the footlights u with

Amused delight wu the tribute accorded Bob Brooks u the pompous
Sir Joseph. Musical dialogues between
thia democratic aw-lord and tho bevy
of "Hla sisters and hla cousins and hla
aunts," were handles with a practised ease that la itself a compliment
to the director of the whole performance. A word of praise hi Sot to
Brooke for his fine portrayal of this
character, on whom much of the action hinges.
Buttercup's popular solos were well
received. Her contralto voice presents a pleasing contrast to the flutelike notes of the leading lady. Dick

Make Last Move
To Save U.B.C.
Out of town studenta were asked
at a meeting on Tuesday to fend
telegrams to Influential men of their
home constituencies, asking them to
telegraph to members of the Legislature their support of an increased
University grant.
It had been observed that several
members from Interior constituencies
who had formerly favored a raise In
the grant were now turning against
it. The Publicity Committee felt
that this change of opinion might be
checked if the individual members

fluential men at home, for it wu
pointed out that most of the members were sympathetic towards the
university. Being assured of support at home, it wu believed that
they would take action to have the
grant increased.
The speakers declared that the six
members of the Publicity Committee
had been working for five weeks on
the campaign to save the university.
The sacrifice of time and lectures
thus entailed might mean the loss
of a whole academic year to these
students.
"It is the least the out of town

The whole performance wu characterized by a finish and flair not usually achieved by amateurs. Comments
of capable critics who heard the operetta on Wednesday, u well u the
"Pirates of Penzance" last year, took
the tone that thia year's accomplishment is on a par with the fine performance of the "Pirates," which wu
so favorably discussed at the time of
its presentation.
The orchestra's contribution to the
successful rendering of "Pinafore"
was a large one. and Mr. Haydn Williams hu definitely added new laurels

COMPARATIVE VALUE
OF MODEM ENGINES
TRACEDAT MEETING
Internal Combuattion la Subject of
Address to Institute by
Tracing a brief history of development of the Diesel engine, Prof.
H. Letson pointed out to the Vancouver Institute Monday night, that
only within the last fifty years have
special developments taken place hi
its construction. The Professor was
speaking on "Modern Development
in Internal Combustion Engines,"
hut limited his subject to that type
of engine burning oil.
By means of slides, the speaker
explained the action of various types
of internal combustion engines commonly found to-day, including double
and single acting types as well as
those of two and four cycles. "So successful was the advent of the Diesel
engine that, about 1880, prominent
men were predicting the entire ob-
solence of the steam-engine by 1931,"
declared the lecturer. "Steam engines, however, are still unbeatable
for certain purposes," said the
speaker.
As   an   example   he   took    marine
engines in which steam turbines are
medium   speed   ships,   however,   the
Diesel   has   come   to   the   fore.     Old j

A.M.S. PimMcm
Because it does not employ union
labor In the construction of ita scenery
for both Players' Club and Musical
Society shows, the Alma Mater Society Is being threatened with a place
on the black-list of the local stage
hands union. This transpired at the
regular weekly meet of Council Monday night
The local union, which la affiliated
with the American federation of
Labor, hu voiced a protest because In
the majority of cum they are not
even allowed to submit a price on the
work that hu to be done. Ihe construction of scenery used on the Campus Is done by Jack McCance, who
hu been connected with the Players'
Club for the past fifteen years.
Like the Elephant
McCance it appears, once testified
against the union in a law suit
The union lost. McCance wu summarily ejected.
Now the union claims that they
should at least be allowed to figure
on any Job that hu to be done. On
one occasion, they assert when they
pressed to be allowed to submit a
price, they were forced to do so
within forty-eight hours and they
found out some time later that the
contract had been let some six weeks
previous.
Mark Collins, Bill Whimster and
St. John Madeley have been' asked
to collect all available information
on the subject so that when a representative of the union waits on
Council neat Tuesday night, there
will be plenty of argument.
Intercollegiate Series Settled
Two items in the business of the
Council meeting have finally cleared
up the Manitoba, B. C. series in
Canadian Rugby. The first Is the
passing of a bill for $308.10 to Manitoba, in final settlement of the
guarantee and gate receipt mixup.
The other is the agreement of Roy
McDonald to settle for $15.00 on
$?1.63 which Is outstanding from the
ticket sale of the same series.
Louis Chodat is to be summoned
before Cquncil sitting u a Court for
infringement of the outside team
regulation. Chodat hu been repeatedly warned, but hu signed on with
the Vancouver Y and the Vancouver
Rep rugby squad. This follows
Council's refusal to grant him permission to play on any outside team,
and their declaration of his ineligibility.

SENATE'S REPORT
The Board of Governors will face a difficult
problem when it meets to consider the recommendations of the Senate Committee which
were adopted by the Senate aa a whole on
Wednesday night.
The premise upon which all the argument
for the Senate's decisions rests, namely that
the primary function of the University ig to
teach, will have to be considered in the light
of public wishes. If then, this is accepted, the
next point of major interest appears to be
whether the Faculty of Agriculture should remain as such, or whether it should be absorbed
as a department into the Faculty of Applied
Science. There is a wide divergence of opinion
on thia point. The reasoning behind Senate's
recommendation in this regard is based chiefly
on economy. It is alleged that as a department
of Applied Science the teaching of agriculture
can be satisfactorily carried on at much less
cost than if it were to be directed by a separate
faculty.
Advocates of agriculture as a faculty, on
the other hand, aver that if an AppUed Science
degree in agriculture is to be offered, it will
necessitate keeping a staff quite large enough
to warrant tiie continuance of a separate
faculty. As a corollary they argue that the
agriculture department of Applied Science will
not be able to furnish adequate training of this
nature. Students have not access to any figures
which will either prove or disprove this fact,
and while there are obvious reasons for withholding faculty budgets from the public at
present, it is very unsatisfactory from the student point of view to have decisions which
affect them handed down without reasons being
given.
Senate's policy as expressed in these recommendations is plainly to preserve the Faculty
of Arts intact as far as possible. Such a policy
will uphold the historical conception on what
a university should be. It will have the support of the great majority of students. It is for
the Board of Governors, as the link between
public and university, to convince tiie former
that tiie conventional view is the correct one.
Should the Governors endorse Senate's proposal, the form of the university aa it has
exigted up to the pregent will be practically
destroyed. Senate and students alike seem
reconciled to this fact.
It ia to be hoped that a reduction in the
number of faculties, should it take place, wtil
at least reduce the lamentable amount of internal wrangling and petty slander which have
been all too obvious up to the present time, and
which, rumor has it, has led to the disregard
of the good of the university where it conflicted
with individual intereatg.
SPRING FEVER
Spring has again descended upon this campus. The double doors of the Auditorium and
the Arts Building are fastened open. The
Pub. radiators are turned off. It is the season
in which is recalled the memory of the assiduous assistant who used to keep a card index
of the couples who were wont to wander down
the woodland paths towards Marine Drive.
Most fruitful sign of all, the Literary Department of the Publications Board is showing
signs of restiveness, the results of which are
expected to emerge shortly in the form of an
extra-poetic Literary Supplement.
Seriously speaking, however, the Supplement shows signs of more than usual excellence this term. The work of last season's
editor has been taken over by Mollie Jordan,
a valiant worker in the ranks of the Ubyssey
staff since her first registration at U.B.C. Undeterred by that bugbear of former editors,
lack of student cooperation, she has proceeded
to gather together a very creditable amount
of good material, thus falsifying the dictum
that the undergraduate body is totally dead to
things intellectual.
The semi-annual appearance of the Literary
Eligibility rules are to the fore again, and
the student body is being asked to consider a
new ♦'point system" today. Yesterday I heard
the best argument yet advanced for
Eligibility the retention of the present system. It was held that those who. are
content with the lowest possible standing
would, if there were no rules, have an advantage in competition^ for participation in student
activities, especially sports, over those who
study conscientiously. It was thought that the
latter should be encourage^, and better deserve
to have A.M.S. money spent on them, when
that* enters into it.
Under the present regulations, those Who do
not get the required standing are declared ineligible. The argument just outlined seems to
me a good justification for the rules, and the
proposed "point system" would not have this
justification. It seems to me that there is no
other reason for having eligibility rules at all.
Concern on the part of the A.M.S. for the
academic welfare of students ig touchingly solicitous, but uncalled for—hla standing ig the
concern of the individual, and the faculty does
any necessary checking up in that respect.
I think tiie "point system," though well
meant, ia rather pointless. If the A.M.S. wishes
to say that the worst students shall not be allowed to spend their abundant leisure time in
extra-curricular activities in place of better
students with lege leisure time, that ia a reasonable and healthy attitude, and much preferable to the policy of some institutions where,
in athletics, winning teams are desired at all
costs. Otherwise, there appears to be no excuse for any eligibility rules unless we want
to say to the Students' Council: "0 worthy
Council, let us set up a point system to control all our activities, to the end that you may
save us from ourselves, for we are but little
children who are unfamiliar with the score,
bewildered by many temptations and likely
to neglect our homework if you don't keep
a watchful eye upon us."   -
The Toronto 'Vanity' of February 11 contains a cable from Geneva by James F. Green,
Yale '32, sent there by the Intercollegiate Disarmament Council to represent
A Student American student bodies. He de-
At Geneva livered the first address by a student to a League meeting. He
explained the strong desire of the American
students for drastic disarmament, as expressed
in a recent poll and by a delegation that waited
on President Hoover. The speaker waa also
authorized to present results of the British students' petition.
Mr. Green "expressed the conviction of students that war settles nothing, that studenta
have lost interest in being cannon fodder, that
an international government should replace
nationalism and state sovereignty, and that
students desire to build a world society."
In time we shall find the United States
taking her proper place and responsibility ln
the international organization that meat of the
other nations have formed. Intelligent American opinion seems to favor more and mere
the putting of an end to the present unsatisfactory, embarrassing, hampering situation, in
which the United States are officially isolated,
yet unofficially in the League's basement, attic, kitchen, coal-hole and closets—everywhere
but in Ihe council chamber—as the Province
expressed it in an editorial last fall. The question many ask ig, if tills change of attitude ia
to come in time, will it,come—in time?

V. C. u.
On Wednesday noon the members
and friends of the Varsity Christian
Union heard an address by Mr. Oakely of Madras, India.
The speaker took as his subject
"The Import of the Absolute Necessities of Life" and showed where
these necessities are to be found in
the chapters of the Bible. Me mentioned the fact that most people
think of Christ as "the meek, the
lowly, and the humble," but that
few stop to think that It was Christ
who said to the world "I am the
bread of life."
The first necessity of physical life
is bread, or fond, and wlfhout It
human life would wither away and
die. The spiritual life of man also
must have food and Christ Is that
food tor Me Is "the bread of Life."
The speaker than spoke of the second necessity of life; that of the
need of water. Then comes to mind
thc fact that it was Christ who said
"If any man thirst let him come
unto me and drink."
Then there is the necessity of
light to the life of man. And again
from the lips of Christ were spoken
the words "I am the Light of the
world."
Then, finally, there Is the great
necessity of rest for our easily tired
bodies. To those who will listen
there come the words of Christ,
"Come unto me and I will give you
rest."
The daily noon-hour meetings of
the group are held in Arts 204 and
all interested are heartily welcome.

Referring to attempts recently
made to establish the Diesel engine
tor railway service, Professor Letson
pointed out that It had been a decided success, and might be expected In the future to revolutionise
rail transportation.
"Naval development in Internal

"but one does not hear about tills

seen some notable advances in Diesel

Finally the Professor reminded his
audience that economic interests are
ln large part responsible for the success of the internal combustion engine, for Investors have risked large
sums tn supporting what has, however, proved its worth many times.

The material appearing in the Literary Supplement, in representing the cream of the University's culture, should do much to refute
some of the charges directed at "young people

Don Grant Drinks Much Tea In China;
Observes Economic Conditions
By Archie Thompson
Don Grant, tJ.B.C. graduate, and last
year's winner of the McMillan Behol-
arshlp, who has Just returned from a
year's sojourn in China studying industrial and commercial conditions,
related many teles of bis Oriental experiences, In an Interview granted to
the Ubyssey.
He told of a meal which he had had
at, a restaurant in Peking, with Bruce
McDonald, a U.B.C, graduate of Arts
'27, now assistant trade commissioner
in Shanghai. The two thought they
would like to taste some Peking duck.
Not being able to speak any Chinese,
they got ihe hotel clerk to call up
the restaurant and order it for them.
When they arrived at the cafe, the
waiter proceeded to bring in various
courses one after another, which they
proceeded to consume, although they
did not know what they were eating.
After six courses, the waiter began
bringing in some sort of meat which
they thought was pork. Overwhelmed
by this, the customers wearily besought him to take it way. They later
discovered that they had deeply insulted the proprietors, as tills "pork"
was the Peking duck which they had
ordered!
He also had some complicated experiences with the Oriental money
system, for he found, tint it took five
twenty-cent pieces and thirty coppers
to make a dollar.
He told of visiting a Chinese factory.
First he was introduced to the "head
man," who then brought In six other
of the officials. Tea was served, while
the Chinamen sat looking at the visitor, laughing, and talking Chinese
about him, much to his discomfiture.
They were very friendly, for after he
was shown through the factory, more
tea was served.
Speaking about economic conditions,
Mr. Grant said: "China is not a highly
organised country, and wealth on one
side and extreme poverty of the
masses on the other are so unevenly
matched that the effects of tiie depression are not so noticeable as in other
countries.
He believed that there was a great
opportunity for Increased exports to
China of Canadian lumber, canned
foodstuffs, and other products. "I do
not consider that the Japanese occupation of Manchuria will affect
Canada's trade with that part of the
country as greatly as Is generally
thought. There are so many factors on
both sides that it is difficult to make
a clear and short statement, but Canada's biggest market will continue to be
in central China ln any case," he declared.
Industrial Ethics
rms
Of Address
At the penultimate lecture of its
series of sue dealing with the theme
ot "towards a new social order," the
S.C.M. listened to Dr. Brewing of
St. Andrews-Wesley United Church
speaking on "Some Modern Developments in Industrial Ethics."
"If there ever was a time when
the world needs pure, concentrated
thinking, that time is now," Said Dr.
Brewing. "I believe," he continued,
"that the depression is due, not to
wickedness or to any deliberate desire to do wrong, but to stupidity,
end ii is the introduction of an ethical note that will save the situation." ,
Speaking about the conditions
which existed long before there was
unemployment on a large scale, Dr.
Brewing maintained that the advent
of mechanical methods of production
had caused a serious'disturbing influence on the workers. Before any
of our present difficulties are solved,
there wiU have to be a revival of
the romantic elements In toll.
Finally,, in order to progress with
evolution, mankind as a whole must
forego personal ambition and strive
for the greater good of society. "At
present we can only look to that
time when competitive speed Is organized for the good of society and
hot so that one man may reach his
financial goal before the other fellow," concluded Dr. Brewing.

(Continued from Page One)
slon made on her youthful mind
wu powerful and her perusal of
the cynically bitter works of Strlnd-
berg formed a harsh and Independent outlook on life in her from the
outset.
Adolescence, with Its stages of
doubt and disillusionment tossed her
about like a ship at sea until she
was forced to abandon all her preconceptions ot life except those of
love. Love alone retained Its taint
of reality.
Slgrld commenced writing stories
in 1907, the first one concerning a
wife unfaithful to her husband. Ihe
author was criticised as having "an
Ideal too pure, too high, and thinking that everyone must have the
same Ideals." She condemns compromise and halfway measures and
exalts only positive virtues, and It
is her inabtliyt to transcend the narrow llmltes of her own personality—
to forget herself, which ever characterizes Slgrld Undset's works.
Although the works of Undset have
been divided into mediaeval and
modern, the change from one to the
other Is only that of time and place.
The mediaeval novels mark the author's philosophic outlook and are
logical outcomes of the early novels.
Now we see her transcending the
objective plane and her genius culminates in "Kristin Uvransdatter"-
a saga In three books, the book is
written In the atmosphere of the
fourteenth century, names of that
period even having been copied by
the author.
In this novel we have the final
triumph of the Individual ever her
'karma;"  In earlier books It Is lit
tbsenoe of this victory which results
In somewhgt bizarre results.
In conclusion, Mr. Freeman said
that the fulfillment of Undset's life's
struggle after truth Is seen In her
creation of "Kristin Uvransdatter,"
and In the writing ot an earlier, but
in his opinion, Jess great novel, "The
Master of Hestvlcken."
When wo left our heroes last week,

were In the throws of battle with
neither the one or the other getting the advantage. So we will stop

and a heavy slice, slashes Bathos

Then the Cardinal's guards came
up to stop the battle and as you remember in my first book all the
musketeers turned on the guards
and began to lay about them lustily. Finally all the guards were
laid out in neat little rows. They
were then buried about two Inches

TALK ON ART
tSMUVERED
BY LIBRARIAN
Owing to illness Rev. Dr. Ogden
was unable to give his address upon
"Religion and Art," at the meeting
of the Art Club on Tuesday evening,
February 23. Mr. Ridington consented to give an Impromptu talk upon
thc principles of beauty and art.
Introducing his subject with a few
words upon the subject of religion
and art the speaker pointed out that
all down through the ages, religion,
the aspiration of the human soul
towards the divine, and art, the aspiration of the .human soul towards
the beautiful, together have formed
the warp and woof of human life.
Mr. Ridington then went on to
discuss the standards of excellence
and beauty of today and yesterday.
"In the elder days of art" there was
a long apprenticeship. Proficiency,
while based on superb natural gifts,
had to be developed by painstaking
practice—drawing was the foundation of painting. At the present time
there would seem to be ample evidence that many painters cannot
draw.
One essential idea which the modernists have grasped, however, u
the importance of simplification and
the elimination of useless details. The
two basic principles of art are selection and1 arrangement: even the photographer la beginning to adopt them
and photography as an art Is rap-
Idly developing. But when the artist goes beyond the limits of probability Into tiie distorted regions of
tiie wildly impossible, then he is
violating the eternal principles of
beauty.

TROUBLE IN ALBERTA
(Ttaken from "The Gateway," U. of
Alta, paper)
This year more than ever before
(attention has been foeussed upon the
problem ef student discipline. While
there have been more or less full
discussions of tiie matter in the past
it is safe to say that never before
has there been as much misunderstanding on the subject as there is
at present,.
The provost has been Interviewed
on the subject, but before his state-
[hunt was published, difficulty arose
in connection with the Women's
Discipline Committee. The entire
/question having been obscure for the
past two years, chiefly due to lack
of Information on the part of both
Council and University authorities,
was now being brought to a head
by the "severely censurable" action
of the Women's Discipline Committee with regard to its action in suppressing card playing ln the Tuck-
shop.
At present there are two alternatives which must be decided upon
by the Student's Union. Either the
Discipline Committee Act should be
abolished, or If It continues to function, It must choose between mete-
Ing out the heavy punishments required by the authorities or else give
judgements according to Its own
standards. If it adopts the latter
course, it lays Itself open to having
Its ease re-opened by the authorities.
The Student's Union will decide
the fate of the Committees at a
meeting this week.

"Wtlfheood," whose sketches have

a review is given below:
"Weather and Wings," by J. W.

fpomaji Nelson,and Sons, Limited,
The titic itself is musical and the
prose of gge teat has a rhythm quite
as beautiful as the title. Although
the author' is, primarily, a natural*
1st, he combines with his knowledge
of nature a rare gift of simple,
graceful expression. The book, therefore, has a double appeal, that of
accurate information and literary
quality.
The author, J, W. Wlnson, Is well-
known to Canadians, for his contributions to the Vancouver Province
under the nom de plume of "Wild-
wood," have brought him fame. The
nature essays of this book will add
to his reputation for they will give
a new incentive to the weary city
dweller to renew his acquaintance

of nature out-of-docrs. They have
the power to lead their readers to
the tops of hills, along shady rural
bypaths and to the Shores of sequestered lakes, there to watch, contemplate and examine the ever changing, never flagging work of nature.

WIFE OF GREAT POET',
FRANKENSTEIN MAKER,'
FEATURES JORUM MEET
"The Good Companions" Reviewed by
Kathleen How After Paper on
Mary Shelley
Mary Wallstonecraft Shelley, authoress and second wife of Percy
Bysshe Shelley, was the subject of
a paper given by Miss Gertrude La-
niont to the Literary Forum, Tuesday noon, in Arts 105.
An account of Mary Shelley's
childhood was given by Miss Lament. When she was fifteen, her
father described her as "singularly
bold, somewhat imperious, and active of mind. -Her desire of knowledge Is great, and her perseverance
in everything she undertakes almost
invlnciole."
On May 5, 1816, Mary Godwin first
made Shelley's acquaintance; by
June 8 they had become affectionate
friends. When, in the middle of
December, 1816, Shelley learned* of
the death of his first wife, a fortnight later he married Mary. "For
thc next Bix years her history is almost absorbed in that of her illustrious husband," continued Miss La-
monk
During her husband's lifetime,
Mary Shelley studied intensively;
after his death in 18% her diaries
are full of involuntary lamentations.
On the way she had the satisfaction
of seeing a drams founded on
"Frankenstein" performed at Paris.
"The Lsst Man," published In 1110,
though s remarkable book, is in no
way apocalyptic, and wants the tremendous scenes which the subject
might have suggested," stated Miss
Lament.
Her Impressions of her travels are
recorded In "Rambles In Germany
and Italy," published in 1844. She
fulfilled Shelley's wish that an annuity of £130 be settled on Leigh
Hunt. Then she attempted to write
her husband's life, but her health
and spirits were unequal to the task
and only a fragment was written,
Mary Shelley died .in Chester Square,
London, February 1, 1181, and was
burled in the churchyard at'Bournemouth.
A review of Mr. J. B. Priestley's
"Good Companions," by Miss Kathleen How concluded the program.
"Not only are tiie characters 'Good
Companions,' but the book Itself Is
one," said the speaker. "It tells of
the adventures of a troupe of eon-
cert actors and especially of three of
Its members who had Joined the
party under the urge'of 'wanderlust'."
So many of the modern novels are
psychological, problematic, ot depressing, it Is a pleasure tp find one that
is ordinary. The people have no
serious problems beyond that of
earning their living. The book is
decidedly optimistic in tone."

MeOILL DAILY PUBLISHES STATEMENT EXTRAORDINARY
In a front page write-up concerning the U. B. C. student campaign,
the McOiU Dally publishes twisted
and absurd statements of the campaign: It refers to the "seal of the
students being deep enough to drive
them to the most extreme measures
tot urgency" and force them to
"spend hours downtown In the midst
of a raging snowstorm—causing them
to stop street-cars and interfere with
alt who were a hindrance or indifferent to the petition."
But the cream of the thing follows "From 8:30 In the morning they
laboured at their self-appointed task,
UNTIL AFTER FIVE HOURS OF
INCESSANT CAMPAIGNING THEY
FOUND THAT SIX-THOUSAND
rPEOPLE, FROM THE STUDENT
BODY AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC HAD SIGNED THE MONSTER
PETITION!"
Such statements, besides creating
an entirely erronious conception of
the campaign, make the students' effort seem absurd. Six thousand
signatures where one third that number of students had been canvassing
in a city of Vancouver's size is little

With but eight daya left, the Vanity McKechnie Cup squad
is training strenuously for the game with ita old rival, the
Vancouver Rep. Aa the league now stands, Vancouver, Victoria and Varaity are even, so that a win for the Blue and Oold
on March 5 will place them in the top berth.
With regard to tiie relative strength of the teams, nothing
definite can be said.  Victoria hu lost to Varsity and has won
from Vancouver; Vancouver lost to Victoria and has beaten
Varsity, while the students took Victoria into camp but were
defeated by the local Reps. However, in view of the fact that
-   •     tho+  ■—■——
Varsity   has   beaten   Victoria,
chances are strong for a U.B.C. win.
The return of the Canadian Bep
team from Japan adds several stars
to the Vancouver Rep., but as they
were on the aggregation that licked
the collegians by only three points
last term, the Point Orey team will
still have a good opportunity to be the
, victors.
"Buck" Yeo, Varsity's premier rugby
coach, hu been putting the team
through the old regulation grind for
the series and with morning practises,
after noon practises and chalk talks,
the lads are In fine condition and
are Improving daily.
The team has suffered with the retirement of Phil Barrett, powerful
three-quarter man for the past several
years. It is also rumored that Bobby
Gaul, the speed artist of the team,
will be out of the game owing to Illness. Art Mercer suffered a fractured
hand a few weeks ago but it Is expected that he will be in his usual
position when the whistle shrills for
the opening stanza of the momentous
tussle.
Art Murdock Is playing a fine game
at three-quarter and full-back; and
Dalton, Tye and Ellis are all shaping
up well.
The forwards have been developed
into one of the strongest scrums Varsity has had for years and should
make themselves felt plenty against
the Rep opposition.
While the team is looking after its
needs for the engagement the executive are looking after other arrangements. Tickets will be on sale early
next week et special student prices. A

Charlie McCadden, twice holder of
the University Oolf Championship
and ex-City Champion, was eliminated in the first round of the tourney Tuesday afternoon when he
bowed to Arnle Powell by 3 and 2.
Arnle literally burned up the course
in his last opportunity to down
Charlie who has come out on top
In two previous encounters.

Powell followed up a birdie four
oxi the first hole with seven consecutive fours, which with a five-on
the ninth gave him a ST, one over
par, on the outward nine. McCad-
den's short gome was slightly off
and he couldn't match the hot pace,
finishing five down on this nine.
Charlie fought right back and after
three rallies on the last nine was
forced to admit defeat on the Uth
green. Both boys played nice golf
considering the weather, Powell

Bobby Oaul has been out for three

The Senior Soccer team takes on
South Hill Army and Navy team at
Wilson Park Saturday, In a Second
Division league fixture, beginning at
2:30 p.m.
The last time these teams met,
they fought to a draw with little to
choose between them. At present,
thc Army and Navy boys are leading
the Blue and Oold squad by one
point, but have played a game more.
The Varsity boys are out to take
this game, as it probably means the
difference between third place and
fourth or fifth place ln the final
standing. According to the records
ot the contestants, It will be a hard
struggle.
In an effort to remedy the lack of
goals during the last few games, the
Varsity squad will present a changed
line-up for Saturday's game. Paul
Kozoolin will return to his old position of centre-half, his place at centre-forward being taken by Otle
Munday. Jimmy Smith will come
ln from the extreme right to fill the
lnslde-right position, while Jock
Waugh will resume at right-wing after a week's absence through Injury. Ernie Costain will replace
Howie Wright at right-half, to complete a strong half line. The back
division  will be unchanged.

Mar.23 -College of Puget Sound-Varsity.
Varsity track men will once more
don their spiked shoes in the opening
cinder meet of the season when representatives of the Arts. Science, and
Agriculture Faculties will vie for honours In .the annual Inter-faculty competition on the Stadium next Wednesday afternoon. In a meet which marks
the first of a series of four contests,
the Blue and Oold speedsters will
limber up the muscles that have been
idle during the winter months, while
the club officials will be on the watch
for promising material for the Intercollegiate squad
For the first time In many years a
Blue and Oold cinder aggregation will
act as hosts to a visiting college team.
Late in March the College of Puget
Sound will send a squad to Vancduvar
in an effort to repeat the victory
scored over a British Columbia outfit
last season. President Ralph Thomas
of the Varsity track club is busy lining up the pick of the U.B.C. spike
artists for the big competition, and
the early meets will serve to develop
the prospective entrants.
One of the most promising of the
Varsity dashmen will not be entered
in Wednesday's meet. Bob Gaul, who
copped the 220 in Tacoma a year ago,
has been Ul for some time and will
not be in condition for the contest.
It Is also doubtful if he will be able
to enter in any of the other contests
this spring. While the University has
a host of star quarter mile mea it is
probable that none of them will be on
hand for the event next week.
Strangely enough all of the quartette
of 440 speedsters are members of the
Senior "A" basketball team, and as
the boys will be playing the first of
their playoff games that night, there
is little possibility of their getting into
the competition. Bob Osborne, Pi
Campbell, Ken Wright and Doug.
Mclntyre can all circle the oval in
less than 53 seconds which is fairly
good time In these parts.
There is some doubt as to the
strength of the Freshman team, although Haddon Agnew and Bill Stott
are highly rated in field and sprint
events respectively.
Science '34 Win
From Arts '33
In Last Minute
Science '34 continued their triumphant march through the Interclass basketball series on Thursday
when they accounted for Arts '33 In
a thrilllngly fought struggle, running
out winners 20-19. The Sciencemen
got away to a flying start, dropping
in five baskets before the Juniors
tallied at all. Half time saw them
up 14-8.
Randy Tervo went on a scoring
spree tor '33 In the second canto,
and with the game all but gone the
engineers were on the short end of
a 19-18 count. Archie McDougall of
soccer fame pulled the game out of
the fire in the fading moments when
he broke through to score from a
toss up.
McDougall, with ten points, turned
tot a sensational game at guard for
the winners, while Captain Fred
Be|ton and BUI Owyer also caught
the eye. Randy Tervo, of Arts '33,
was high man for the losers, while
McDonald and Lucas were also outstanding. Laurie Nicholson handled
the whistle and a bis crowd watched
the battle.
•  •  •
Arts '33 triumphed over Aggies in
an inter-class basketball fixture on
Tuesday By a 39-25 count, after five
minutes overtime. The teams were
deadlocked with 83 points apiece et
full time, but the farmers wilted
badly ln tiie extra session and were
snowed under by 18-2.
Tervo, Thomas, and Lucas were
the big shots of the winners, while
Dave Turner, captain of the Westminster Royals, Dominion soccer
champions, proved his versatility by
accounting for six of the hay-
shakers' baskets.

Senior City Squad to Tackle Meralomas Tomorrow at 2:30 on the Varsity Oval-
New Series of Plays to be Tested
Johnny McLean presided at a Canadian Rugby Club meeting held in Arte 108 Thursday afternoon when plana lor the
annual Artg-Science grid war were discussed.
The Arts-Science war, which has been an outstanding fixture since 1928, will wind up an intense Spring Training aad
will be played on March 16. Practices will be held Monday,
Wednesday and Friday mornings, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Joe Price has been appointed coach of the Artsmen and
Doc Burke will handle the Engineers.
Both coaches are enthusiastic about the Spring Training

Idea. Steady workouts with all new
plays should keep the boys interested
until they return for the fall session.
Captains of the faculty squads will
be elected at the first practice and all
candidates are advised to bring their
own soap-boxes. At the end of tiie
year a Canadian Rugby Club banquet will be held.
The meeting adjourned after seine
discussion of the eligibility question
and the meeting decided that they
favored the newly-proposed point system.
"Victory or nothing" Is the slogan
of Dick Farrington's scrappy Senior
City grid squad when they tackle the
Meralomas at 2:30 Saturday on the
Varsity oval.
Last Saturday's win against V.A.C.
brought new hope to several 'doubters
and they have resumed workouts.
Dick Farrington has proved an energetic and popular coach and Is reported to have worked out a new
series of plays whereby line-men will
be able to carry the ball whenever
the backfield needs a rest Jack Hall
is showing up well at flying wing and
will probably start in that position
Saturday. Don Stewart has been going
well at guard and Frank Thorneloe of
last year's squad will bolster up either
the guard or centre department It
is possible that Joe Dwyer, the line-
plunging gnat-weight will be tried
out in the quarter position in order
to relieve Jack Steele.
Coach Farrington refuses to make
any rash promises but those "In tiie
know" are confident that the revamped student aggregation will hang
up another win. The Cougars are one
of those teams that win when least
expected But one thing Is certain-
Varsity will be In perfect condition.
The confidence of tiie team Is well
expressed in the words of Boris
Ooumenlouk: "They made N yards
through me last week. But they
won't do It this time—I've sold my oar
and bought a pair of footbaU shoes."
