Touring Porto Ricans To Clash
In Forensic Duel With U.B.C.
TOURING debaters from the University of Porto Rico will meet
b, team of speakers from the University of B. C. on the subject
resolved "That this house condemns the growing domination
of the United States in affairs of this hemisphere," at the Auditorium, March 9.  The U. B. C. debaters will uphold the affirmative
side of the argument.
Jack Sargent, president of the Debating Union, in an interview
to the   "Ubyssey"   in   summing  up
'    ' ■      igh
chances of victory says, "Althougl.
tills is the first time we have met the
University of Porto Rico in a for-
esnic duel, we feel sure that this debate should produce powerful interest for our University. Consequently we have chosen a strong team
to represent us. We are confident that
victory is not impossible."
The personnel of the team includes
E. H. King, active member of the Debating Union, organizer of North
Vancouver School debates, former
Inter-Class debater and prominent
speaker at Alma Mater meetings; and
Frank Hall, president of the Law
Club, member of the Debating Union,
and Inter-Class debater.
- Both speakers were chosen primarily for their participation in Alma Mater Society discussions.
The Porto Rico speakers are travelling throughout America and are
meeting thirty leading Universities.
They debate both in Spanish and English. Antonio J. Colorado, captain of
the team, Victor Manuel Gutierrez,
Law student of Holy Cross College,
Mass., Juan Enrique Geigel an d represent their University in this most important debate. Richard Pattee, who
Is coaching the team, has accompanied
the men throughout the tour.
In their Canadian tour, they are
debating at McGill University, Toronto, University of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Vancouver. They will
complete their coast tour at the University of California.
Their efforts to secure debates in
Spanish is to encourage the widespread knowledge of the language and
to form student relationship on the
basis of a mutual comprehension of
the two languages. The present tour
is clearly the most extensive undertaken by any university. The three
Porto Rlcan speakers will remain in
the United States and Canada for
well over two months, and will include
auch Universities as Northwestern,
Yale, Arizona, New Mexico, Tulane,
Oklahoma, Drake University and Des
Moines. The last debate will take
place in Washington, D. C, and will
be staged under the auspices of the
George Washington University. This
represents the final contest of the
series, and immediately following it
the team sails for the Island.
The annual inspection of Canadian
Officers' Training Corps, University
of B. C. Contingent, will take place
to-morrow, Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m.,
at the Drill Hall, Beatty street. Bri-
Sadier J. Sutherland-Brown, C.M.G.,
>.S.O„ District Officer Commanding
Military District No. 11, will be the
inspecting officer.
The program will start with an inspection of the contingent followed by
the march past. The junior officers
will then conduct platoon drill, after
which some of the N.C O.s will do
squad drill.
Successful candidates for "A" and
"B" certificates examinations in
March, 1930, will then be presented
with their certificates. The serving of
refreshments  will  end  the   program.
Those who will receive Certificate
"A" are: R. V. Anderson, R. S. Bollon,

Since the first Leap Year Ball in
1028, in the Georgian Room of the
Hudson's Bay, the affair has gained
such prominence that it is now the
important event of the spring term.
It is the one occasion in the year when
the man has to ait around and wait
for an invitation to go to the party,
the one occasion when he is free from
worrying about hit partner's program, and footing the bill. And likewise it is the one night in the year
when unlimited power is placed in
the hands of the Co-ed; when she can
plan an evening entirely to her own
satisfaction; when she can repay past
attentions—or non-attentions—as she
chooses. Little did the co-eds of 1928
dream that the enterprise on which
they embarked with so much gusto
was to become an annual affair; but
the reversed order of things was such
a pleasant novelty that it was decided
to carry on the custom.
The first of these dances—the Leap
Year Ball—was a fancy dress affair;
but the next year sports dress was
voted the correct thing to wear, and
has continued so. Skirts and sweaters,
contrasted with cords and polo shirts,
all topped by jaunty berets, produce
an air of informality that is as unusual as it is pleasing.
This year, the Ball is to be held on
Friday, March 6, and Lafe Cassidy's
orchestra is supplying music from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. The sacrifice of supper
to support the Stadium, almost necessitates either dinner before, or supper
after, the Dance—or both; so that the
fortunate man can sit back and watch
the girl-friend pay for his vagaries of

it at all times pleased to consider applications for membership, which
should be addressed to Miss Margaret
Black,  Secretary.
The editorial below reveals the
attitude of the "McGill Daily" on college editorials and those of the "Varsity" in particular.
"McGill Daily," February 25:—
Undoubtedly one of the most difficult of an editor's duties is that of
filling his editorial column satisfactorily. We can vouch from experience
that the sight of that great blank
space still unfilled at one o'clock in
the morning is not reassuring to the
peace of mind. It is not easy to dash
off three hundred words about something or other when inspiration refuses to come.
From the point of view of an editorial writer, the best way of all to fill
space is to attack something or other.
It is easy to write critical editorials,
for there are few localities where
everything is perfect. Moreover, the
results are usually gratifying to the
vanity of the paper itself. The dispute which invariably follows is too
apt to give the rag a false sense of
consider itself a power in the community or college when its readers
may regard it with a sort of good-
natured contempt.
An excellent example of a college
paper continually in the limelight because of its aggressive editorials is
the "Varsity" at Toronto. Perhaps we
should rather call these editorials deliberately provocative. That they are
usually right is to be admittecf. It
must also be admitted that the "Varsity's" scathing denunciation of those
that cross its path are calculated to
tickle the palate of the student reader. What we do not admit is that this
is a sound policy for a student newspaper to follow. If it were so disposed the Daily could also stir up a
mare's nest at McGill, but the ultimate benefit would be doubtful. Scarcely a week passes without some violent outburst at Toronto.

Above are the Porto Ricans who will meet Ev. King and Frank Hall to
debate the subject "Resolved that this house condemns the growing domination of the United States in this hemisphere." The U. B. C. team will uphold
the affirmative and has been cramming in the library in the hopes of winning
an inter-collegiate contest. The visitors are touring the American continent and are speaking both in English and Spanish. Two men of the above
group will be chosen to represent Porto Rico against U.B.C.
Students Reveal In Interviews
Opinion On Grantham's Case
ACCORDING to interviews given
by various prominent students
on Monday, opinion varies on
the subject of the dismissal of Ronald Grantham, former Editor-in-Chief
of the "Ubyssey."
Everett King, prominent debater,
states; "In my opinion, the charges
brought against Grantham by the
Council are deplorably weak, and reflect as much upon their tardiness of
action as upon the former Editors
'lack of tact.' Personally, I consider
that those charges are considerably
muffled in a shroud of obscurity; even
if they had been more clear-cut, it is
the feeling of most of us that they
would still appear rather shaky."
Winston Shilvock, President of the
Players' Club, declares, "I think that
Grantham was rather hasty in his
actions; at that time the 'freedom of
speech' question was out of place."
Carl Wickland. Education '31, former editor of the "Brandon Quill,"
says that he has been perfectly satisfied with the "Ubyssey" under Gran
thams regime. "If the position of
editors is to be allowed to entertain
responsibility at all, then Grantham
should be allowed to say as much
as he has said," he declared.
Many students, including James
Gibson, Ken Beckett, Cecilia Long,
Ronnie Howard, Nelson Allan, prefer
to express no opinions.
Alf. Evans, Arts '81, prominent
member of the Players' Club, thinks
that, as a matter of principle, Grantham should be re-instated as Editor-
in-Chief. He points out that Grantham has borne the brunt of general
criticism as well as his actual humiliation.
Pat McTaggart Cowan, camp business manager of the S. C. M. states:
"It seems that there is a parallel between Council's action in asking for
Grantham's resignation and its action in the opening episodes in connection with the stadium. Council
should realize it is here to represent
the students and not the Faculty, and
the sooner it shows that it has a backbone the better. As far as Grantham
is concerned, the least Council could
Varsity Association Proposed
Whole-hearted belief in the benefits
to be derived from closer relationships
between University of Montreal and
McGill, was expressed in the leading
article of the latest number of "Le
Quartier Latin," weekly U. of M.
Journal, published a few days ago.
Under the caption, "The University
of Montreal favors a closer tie with
McGill," Mr. Guy Legault, associate
editor, suggested mutual advantages
to be derived from more extensive cooperation, and was of the opinion that
a permanent university association
should be founded with the duty of
promoting the relations between the
two universities.
have done would have been to give
Grantham a vote of confidence until
after the Faculty Comittee meeting.
That would only be a matter of common decency. If I have misinterpreted any of Council's actions in this
matter the blame rests with them because of the very indefinite reports
they have issued in all stages of this
disgraceful  exhibition."
"Grantham should be reinstated as
Editor-in-Chief," declared Bert Master son, Arts '31, brother of Bill Mas-
terson, former treasurer of the A. M.
S. Grantham has proved himself
capable, in that he protected the interests of the student body in championing the cause of free speech as
U. B. C, at the same time shouldering
the responsibility of his actions.
Eric North, Arts '31, former member of Students' Council, considers
that the action of Council in asking
for Ronald Grantham's resignation
was unjustified. "I do not consider
that Grantham has in any way abused
his perogative in carrying out his
duties as Editor-in Chief. It appears
that Council's actions savor of an
ultra-conciliatory move between University authorities and the students.
Grantham has been unjustly treated
both by University authorities and
by Students' Council."
Frank Hall, Arts '31, President of
the Law Club states: "Council's obvious and elementary tactics in asking
for the resignation of Grantham on
the ground that he has been 'tactless' and 'indiscreet' is an insult to
the intelligence of those who understand the real issues at stake here.
Grantham is patently being made the
goat in a clumsy tactical attempt to
obscure the issue of free speech."
Lawrence Greig, Arts '31, said: "I
fully endorse the sentiments expressed in the article entitled "An Editor
Speaks." Ronald Grantham has without any doubt been made the good
goat for Council. But either the students don't take sufficient interest in
this question of free speech, or they
are powerless to do anything about it,
even if they wished. It seems to me
that R. G. is the only one who has
come out of this affair with any show
of dignity."

Downfall Of Toronto Varsity
Caused By Atheism Editorial
PUBLICATION by the Toronto "Varsity" was suspended February 27th by the University of Toronto Students' Council.
The suspension arose over an editorial in which the student
paper declared that the majority of students and graduates were
"practical atheists," and that atheism was taught by the profes
Theatrical Cast
To Perform In
Coward Play
This drastic statement created a great deal of excitement on
I the Varsity campus as well as in the
city of Toronto itself. Several newspapers were burned before the flagpole of the University in a big student demonstration. The purpose of
this ritual was to purge the college
paper of the editorial comments contained in the burned papers.
The Ontario legislature moved an
adjournment of the house with a view
to discussing the editorial, at a meeting held on February 27 to deal with
the question. Hon. Harry Nixon, Progressive leader, urged the government to institute an investigation on
the grounds that the college editorial
indicated a weakening in the foundations of Canadian institutions.
Premier Henry declined, however, and
was supported by E. N. Sinclair, Liberal leader, who branded "the whole
business as utter nosennse" and at-
Pounding hammers, the swish of
wide kalsomine brush on canvas, interspersed in moments of silence with
voices "emoting" lines; these are the
sounds to be heard back-stage as the
Players' Club prepares for its sixteenth annual Spring Play. The Business Committee has not been lazy, and
Mark Collins, business manager, reports an almost unprecedented advance sale of tickets, so it is advisable to get your tickets early for
good seats.
The bright, sophisticated lines of
this play, "The Young Idea," emanated
from the pen of Noel Coward. When
he played the title role in London
back in 1923, audiences laughed uproariously at the antics of the two
English children who have been educated on the continent, and who are
vastly amused at the hunting phrases
such as "wonderful seat on a horse."
When chlded for making fun of
"bounding Julia," Sholto says that he
is just trying to learn the phrases so
that he can take up riding for he is
sure that both he and Gerda, his sister, have good seats. Gerda's fiery
donkey, "Muriel," who can't turn her
head because "she has spavin, poor
thing" causes considerable amusement. The back-chatter of the English haut monde enjoying their after-
dinner coffee, and liqueurs, is well-
written, amusing and spicy as only
the pen of Noel Coward can make it.
The beautiful evening gowns worn
by English women when in the country are being procured by Sally Carter at great cost. Paul Wolfe is seeing to it that each and every man is
wearing what Bond Street declares is
"the thing."       .   .
The scene for the first two acts is
set in the charming reception hall of
an English country house, while for
the last act it moves to an Italian
villa where the silhouette of cypresses
is to be seen rising from the terrace
against the blue that is to be found
onlv in Mediterranean skies.

While no announcement had been

taken against the editor.
In a statement to the press, A. E. F.
Allen, student editor, declared that
"the best collection of atheists is

of Governors passed, was "nothing
more than a political move to shuffle

series, "The Student in the Christian
Life" given by Mr. Palmer under the
auspices of the V. C. U.
The death of Christ was one of the
greatest cr'ses in human history and
was caused by the sin in human nature—"Christ was too good to live,"
secondly, he claimed to be the son of
God and, thirdly, he died to take away
the sins of the world. Mr. Palmer declared that while the third reason was
the most real it could not be proved

Co-incidental with the Faculty probe into the whys and wherefores of the "Ubyssey" comes news post haste over the wires of
the Canadian Press of a similar collegiate paper upset in the University of Toronto. The "Varsity" it appears has done the wrong
thing by its Alma Mater and is involved in a suspension similar to
the one that aroused the Publications Board of this paper.
The editor of the Toronto publication has dealt with the sub-
Ject of atheism, one which we gather from following developments,
i taboo to the students by order of the authorities. According to
A. E. Allen, the editor, this atheism was prevalent on the campus
and he felt that an article on this subject was not amiss. However,
he was "tactless" enough to connect the authorities of the university with this topic and thus as is apparently the case with university editors, met his doom in the form of suspension of his
We tender our sympathy to the "Varsity" in a reciprocal manner and hope its dilemma will be settled to the satisfaction of the
upholders of the press and also hope that those who deem the university publications as merely publicity-seekers will be shown that
a paper prints opinions* not to seek publicity but give an honest review of the facts of the situation.
Now that editors half a continent away from the Uniyersity
of British Columbia are embroiled in a battle for Free Speech,
Grantham need not feel alone in the epic struggle he made for that
ideal. Tactless or not tactless, editors of papers must be given the
right to express their opinions on that which vitally concerns the
readers of their papers.
Now that the final examinations are only six weeks away the
Library is becoming, as is usual at this time of year, the nucleus of
student activity. In this regard the editorial muse takes up his
pen to resurrect an ancient reminder.
Since the imposing green signs that graced the Library before
Christmas have been removed, surreptitiously or otherwise, from
that "Hall of Silence," a marked increase in the amount of conversation within these precincts has become all too evident. Last year,
towards the end of the Spring term, this branch of library etiquette became almost unbearable and steps were taken to curb the
practice of conversation by imposing fines on the offenders. This
session, before Christmas, "silence" signs adorned each table of
study and some measure of quietness was obtained; but with the
disappearance of these signs, we again face the disturbing element
of conversation. Surely U. B. C. students have sufficient reminders
as were present in the Library during the Fall term.
As regards the insufficient seating in the Library, we would
suggest an improvement in the provision made for this before
Christmas. If extra tables and chairs were placed in the Library
immediately students might have the chance of avoiding the semiannual "plugging" for examinations.

EdiUr, the "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:—
It Is interesting to noU that the Dominion
Government has taken almost exactly the same
attitude toward tho Russian trade offer as Sir
Herbert Holt and other financial leaders expressed previous to the OtUwa pronouncements. One wonders if there is any connection
—if the government is simply doing the will
of these powerful capiUlisU.
An editorial in the Sunday Province pointed
out that this declaration of economic war Is
poor business policy. It seems, however, that
Canada is just falling in line with several gov-
ernmenu that are deUrmlned to keep Russia
as Isolated as possible from the life of the rest
of the world. The attitude Uken in the matter
of trade is not InUlllgent, but selfish and hostile. One reason probably Is that the communistic experiment seems to be succeeding to a
surprising degree. Some day a new. progressive
and settled Russia may result— but the cap-
lUllsU in other countries wil) do their best to
postpone that day, because it would mean the
downfall of their sysUm.
Even now it Is being aald on all sides, by
people in all walks of life, that capitalism, as
we know it, Is on IU last lege—that a higher
sUndard of living, a more widespread education, and an unprecedented increaae of unemployment, demand a more intelligent, a more
co-operative—in short, a more socialistic—economic sysUm.
It seems wrong that men should bo put out
of work In order that companies may pay div.
idenda to shareholders, many of whom are not
In desperaU need of these receipts. It seems
wrong that one man, or a small group of men,
should be able to hire and Are at will—for as*
ample, the papers recently announced that
Shoolbred's famous store In London is being
Uken over by Harrod's, and that IneidenUlly
this will mean tragedy to many hundreds of
employees. How much longer will the Industrious common mortal consent to be at the
mercy of eaplulistle juggling T
Possibly It la morbid speculation on this
question that causes the eaplullsu to declare
economic war against the V. 8. S. R. If the
people of the countries concerned permit this
to continue, they will sooner or laUr find
themselves Involved in a great war—a conflict
between the antiquated eaplulistle system and,
at the other extreme, communism. If the U.S.-
8.R. is accepted into the family of nations, all
concerned would profit both socially and economically, and there need be no conflict between Irreconcilable extremes.
My object In writing, Mr. Editor, Is to eee

Dear Mr. Dallas;
At the meeting of the Library Committee on Wednesday afternoon I reported that 27 out of 30 of the "Silence" stands had disappeared from
the Reading Rooms, and also that 31
of the printed signs were also missing.
The Committee instructed me to report this matter to you with the request that their cost should be
charged against the Students' Caution Money.
I have looked up the cost of these
and find the total to be $33.08. The
proportion that should be charged
against Caution Money for those missing is $27.50.
Will you please, therefore, give instruction that this amount ($27.50)
be charged against Students' Caution
Money and credited to the Library
Equipment Fund?
Very truly yours,
John Ridington.

During the last two terms the project of bringing a South African native student to study medicine at the
University of Otago has been under
investigation by a Joint committee of
the Student Christian Movement, the
International Student Service and the
N.U.S. Foreign Affairs Committee.
The reason for such a schema Is
that, authough native doctors ara
most urgently needed in South Africa,
the color bar there pevents native
students from going to the universities. The student bodies in various
countries have therefore offered to
make themselves responsible for the
medical training of one such student:
and it is suggested that New Zealand
should do likewise.
The joint committee has mads
thorough investigations ragarding the
suitability of the proposed student,
etc. It only remains therefore to secure a guarantee of the necessary
funds which are estimated at about
£187 per annum, for the seven years.
The Foreign Affairs Committee Is
asking each of the four executives to
consider granting £10 per annum towards this sum. It is not really •
large amount when compared with
that spent on entertaining visiting
teams or the grants made to the various college clubs. Moreover this is
not merely an act of Christian charity
but will benefit ourselves in acquainting us with a part of the world and
points of view about which wa know
very little.

There had been music, and the sweep of song
And melody and laughter, low and dear,
All through the sunset-time, as golden-clear
As was the western sky with all its throng
Of faery-colored clouds   .   .   .   And then, along
The glistening heavens, like a growing fear,
Slid shadows, dimming the bright atmosphere,
Taking the colors, silencing the song.
But later, when I sat by window-side,
I saw ashimmer in the shadowed skies
The waking stars, spangling the heavens wide.
Then quiet loveliness did kiss mine eyes,
And thus my heart-deep question was replied,
"Yea, from the death of sunset, stars arise!"

Alone in the small alcove, Jay sat
enveloped by a haze of blue cigarette

chair. At times when there came a
Sause in the blaring music, she could
ear the mournful crescendo and diminuendo of the wind, and the sharp
staccato of the rain, wildly pursuing
each other around the shivering old

which separated the alcove from the
long, dimly-lit studio, she could see
many of the Art students in flannels

polished floor, on which the wavering

how strangely incongruous they seemed—these modern, sophis t i c a t e d

Through the parted curtains, two

jflemories of an Jtofantc?
Siegfried Sassoon
(Faber & Faber, Ltd.)
This book is a delightful personal
reminiscence of the author's impressions of the World War. He shows us
something more than what is found in
many of the recent war books. He has
the mind of a poet and in the midst
of the dreadful turmoil he finds time
and place to express himself. At the
same time he finds himself unable to
reconcile the impressions derived from
the holocaust with those derived from
an ordinary existence which have to do
with the poetry and philosophy of life.
He realizes finally that the two have
to be treated' in separate compartments. Yet he attempts to relieve his
mind of the dreadful numbness that
it is subjected to, by reading any enervating literature that he happens to
have with him, such as Hardy's "Teas
of the D'Ubervilles." He longs to live
for a short time in the natural world
of thought.
In the midst of the scene of destruction he is able to obtain snatches
of beauty. This we see when he says,
"Next evening, just before stand-to, I
was watching a smouldering sunset
and thinking that the sky was one of
the redeeming features of the war.
Behind the support line where I stood,
the shell-pitted ground sloped sombrely in the dusk; the distances were blue
and solemn, with yew trees grouped
on a ridge, dark against the deep-
glowing embers of another day endured."
In this manner we see the dreadful
effect that war has on the sensitive,
intellectual mind. War becomes more
terrible not only from an emotional
point of view in which the animal instincts are affected, but also from the
spiritual view from which it seems
hopeless for the thinking man to
We herewith present a Baby Austin Edition of the Literary
Supplement. This is not because enough worthy material has not
been submitted; on the contrary, we were pleased and proud at
the quality and quantity turned in. But the Literary Department
has taken on some work not previously included in its routine.
In conjunction with, the Letters' Club, it is planning to issue a
Chap-Book of undergraduate verse, which will be published in a
few weeks' time.
We consider that this would be just as valuable and interesting to the student body at large (or at least to such members
of the aforesaid student body who are indiscreet enough to care
for such things) as the ordinary four-page Literary Supplement;
possibly more so.
Speaking of Literary Supplements, some day we should like
to get out a really perfect one; with engrossing stories and brilliant articles and inspiring poetry, to say nothing of balanced
Siges and not a single typographical error to mar its perfection.
f course we never shall; but then, we have never met anyone
who has, nor do we expect to do so. The best we can do is to keep
on, like Sancho Panzo, "Praying to God and hammering away.
At any rate, here it is. The efforts entailed in "getting it in
and getting it out" will be amply recompensed if it proves at all
inspiring, interesting, or entertaining to the readers.
His name was David: but the boys
called him Goofy. It didn't seem to
bother him much any more, not even
when a mob of the little ones shrilled
it at him, "Goofy! Goofy!" they'd
shriek in a circle, and watch fascinated while his eyeballs would begin
to roll up, their slow lids drooping
over so that only the white showed;
as if, at any moment they'd flip clean
over, asleep. For, long ago, the chant
had become far-off and meaningless,
a forgotten bleat. So long he had practised reducing clamour to a blur without meaning—destroying memory as
patiently, as mechanically as an old
dog kills fleas.
He kept his lunch pear till after
school; and when he was alone, where
the road runs closest by the lake, he
took it in his two hands and held it
for a long time, and smelled it:
"It's lovely!" he whispered. "There's
lace on it, and the lace is gold."
The smell, the feel, and the pale
green-gold of it flooded on him in confused intoxication. He pulled his loose
mouth over its firmness; tantalized
his lips with its coolness. Then, suddenly, he tore out the stem of it with
his teeth, bit deep into soft white,
gulped great, cool mouthfuls. The core
he swallowed too, and liked it better
even than the rest: the core was bitter
and sour and sweet; the rest, only
For a long while after he came to
the gate he sat on the white stone-pile
outside, in the shadow of the alders
that made a tall green wall around
three sides of the clearing. On the
fourth side, to the north, the mountain
stood up, black with firs. He remembered how once he had rolled boulders
down the ravine; how once he had
clawed for hours at the moss and
black soil and shale under that big
one, and at sunset set it tumbling,
awkwardly at first, then cracking like
gunshot down the cliffs above the
trees. Below, among the alder and maple and dogwood, the sound came back
softer, like thunder far off. Broken
branches flashed white out of the
darkness. The stillness afterwards had
been like things frightened, listening
with held breadth.
Carefully the boy inspected the
house, especially the wood-shed side,
where a stoop came off from the kitchen. He crept around and in the front
door; but she heard him before he got
to the stairs:
"Hurry and get your kindling split
and your wood in. It'll soon be dark.
Where've you been anyway? Were
you kept in or what? I don't see why
you can't. ." and on and on. And all
the time the boy held his breath and
screamed inside his head. The scream
became a drum-beat, beating on his
eyes; his throat swelled up and pounded to keep time. But she beat him to
it; as she always did. He let the air
suck through his teeth again: his eyas
came back into his head and the puff
went out of his throat. "Do you hear?
. . . It's after five ... I can't understand why .. ." The door bang shut it
There were kittens in the box by
the back step, and the mother cat was
away. He dragged them out of their
straw and rubbed their wet noses on
his cheek. When he set them down
they crept back into the box again.
There wasn't any cedar in from the
barn, so he got a stove-stick of fir and
began to split it into slabs. The back
screen-door squawked open:
"What are you doing? Get right out
and get some cedar. You know very
well I can't get the fire going in the
morning with that. It's bad enough
now getting up at five in the morning
without you making it harder for me
. . . breakfast to get for your father
and you always making more trouble
for me . . ." He began to chop at the
ground, methodically, turning up big
black wedges of it.
"Well, why don't you go? If you
don't hurry up you won't get your
supper before your father comes, and
you know how he hates to have you
fooling around when he's eating."
Around the corner of the shed came
the old cat, with a tiny,ground-mole
in her mouth.
"Are you going for that cedar, or
do I have to go myself?  It's little
enough you do for your mother . . .
and me slaving all day for you . . ."
In front of the kitten box the old

Whatever the destiny has in store for me,
Whatever will come my way,
I'll always keep sacred, though sunny, though stormy,
The memory of one day.
Let the whole world look down upon me,
Let people say what they may;
I have to myself, more than a moment,
The memory of one day.

And pass, while myriad churches chime;

cat gently set down the mole and stood
off to watch it with swaying tail. The
little soft-furred thing was perfectly
still at first. The mother cat smelled
in at her kittens, and came back. It
twinked its sharp, little nose at last,
and shivered all over.
"I'd rather have died than have
treated my mother the way you treat
me. What makes you want to torment
me anyway? Haven't I always done
the best I could for you? And you
won't even . . ."
Suddenly it became very much
alive. The cat let it get as far as the
step and then pounced. She took it up
in her teeth and mouthed it mock-
savagely and put it down again.
Again the tiny thing got as far as the
step, knocked its nose on the step and
fell over bewildered. The old cat
grinned good-naturedly. Next time it
made a rush the other way, made three
silly little dashes and came up with a
bump against the chopping-block.
There was blood running in round
drops from its ears; and the fur on
its sides stuck out in dark wisps. The
cat crouched low to spring. Its low
back stretched longer, the gray streaks
across it got longer too, and wider;
red and purple mixed in the gray—all
the colours in the rainbow mixed in
the gray streaks—and the axe fell
thick on the flat back. The legs dragged out behind, scratching the foothold. Long after it was still the boy
kept beating it down into the ground,
until the hair and the skin and the
mud were all mixed up together. The
boy's white lips stretched into his
white face; the warm smell of the
blood swelled the pupils all over his
After that he went to the barn and
found a cedar shake. When he brought
it in to his mother the scones were
just out of the oven. He took one, slit
it carefully around the edges and then
pulled it apart. When the butter was
melted on it he pinched up a half-
handful of brown sugar and crushed
it into the butter. Then he put the halves together and ate in big bites from
his two hands. And she didn't say
anything; she was frying bacon. He
ate four like that before she spoke;
and then she sounded different than
usual—slower and quieter: "David . .
what made you . . . how could you do
such a terrible thing?"
He finished fixing another aeons
and took it up to bed with him. For
a long time he'd known it wasn't any
use to talk to them: people could navar
understand what you meant.
At midnight he wandered out beneath the stars, and from among the
silent trees saw meadow mists that
clung in sleep to the down-cast shoulders of a yellow moon.
All week, he moved in a strange
strange world for his soul still knew
the haunt of summer stars and lonely
mists and a yellow moon.
On Sunday morn he preached a»

will have the opportunity of seeing
their own University of Washington
in action against the ice stars of U.

at the Puget Sound college's annual
ice carnival.
The local boys have been training
assiduously during the past ten days
and officials of the Varsity club assert that they have an aggregation in
trim now which is superior to anything that has come out of U. B. C.
for several years.
Ten men have been picked to travel
south to uphold the honour of Canuck
tradition. McGregor who
showed Stirling ability as
a custodian throughout the
local series will guard the
net for the Canadians.
Smith, Falconer and McLennan will compose the
BobOamh defence while Bob Darrah,
captain of the B.C. squad, will be assisted in the van by Ramsden, Kelly,
Carswell, Wightman and Mathews.

Capilano Loses 4-3; Defense In Great Form
Alan Todd's brilliant goal with three minutes to go gave Var-
sity senior soccer men a 4-3 victory over the snappy Capilano side
Saturday, at McBride Park in a game replete with thrills as fortunes swayed from one team to the other in rapid succession. The
same Todd netted three goals in all while much credit is due to a
fighting defense which held out against odds after Latta had been
carried off injured. 	
Varsity opened grandly, Dave Todd
snapping in a loose ball after the
Capilano goalie fumbled. Two minutes
later Alan Todd headed a pretty score
from a well-placed corner by Bunny
Wright. Right after the same player
tricked the whole "Red" defence to
plant a grounder in the corner of the
net. Things looked rosy for the students at this stage.
Capilano fought all the harder,
however, and Anally, Eb. Crute, former Varsity star, scored after a
scramble in the goalmouth. Before
halftime McGregor and Chalmers
combined to add a second for the
After gum reinforcements the Gold
and Blue suffered a setback by an
injury to Latta, who was unable to
return. Capilano took its chance and
Crute drove in the equalizer.
From this time on the game was
all Capilano as the visiting forwards
swarmed all about the Varsity citadel.
Roberts and Chalmers played sensational football to keep them out
while the student forwards were disor-
fanized. Lady Luck lent a hand when
•empsey's header struck the foot with
McGregor beaten while two good
efforts were turned around the post.
With three minutes to play, Al.
Todd sent in a great Shot which struck
the underside of the bar to bounce
in, and the game was Varsity's.
Alan Todd was the Varsity hero,
his work being little short of sensational. Bunny Wright was off form
while Kozoolin was not entirely at
home at centreforward. Dave Todd
made few mistakes and Latta's runs
in the first half were a feature. Cos-
"tain was by far the best half, Jock
Waugh finding Kozoolin's shoes hard
to All, and Cox being less steady than
usual in his kicking. Roberts and
Chalmers rose to the occasion magnificently and turned the tide for the
ten men.
Fourth Setback
For Ruggers
Magces Take Listless Game 13-6
Varsity Tisdall Cup Ruggers took
another unexpected pasting Saturday when the rough and tumble Ex-
Magees trounced them 13-6 at Brockton Point.
The Students were slow in starting
and in the first half seldom played
good rugby. The Ex-High men however, only got over once for an uncounted try which made the score 3-0
at the cross over.
After the interval the Blue and
Gold improved but so did the Magee
lads. The college scrum was functioning nicely and finally Mercer slipped
across to level the count at 3 all.
This looked better for the Varsity
fifteen but hopes went when the Ex-
Magees chalked up two tries in rapid
succession to make it 9-3.
Varsity came back but lacked the
necessary punch to score and after
mid-field play, Chodat of the Kerris-
dale squad dropped a pretty goal
from 40 yards out to make sure of
The Point Grey men were not
finished yet, however, and Phil Barratt registered a belated try before
the end. Final, 13-6.

Beat Stars
DesBrisay Stars In Good Win
The mighty Vancouver team, holder of the O. B. Allen Gup and runner-
up in the Mainland League series,
became just another victim of the Varsity grass-hockey squad when the student stick wielders registered their
third win in as many starts by defeating the city representatives 4-8 at
Brockton Point on Saturday.
About 6 minutes from the start
Stevenson culminated some neat tricking with a shot which the opposing
custodian stopped but failed to clear
thus giving Delap the opportunity to
hammer home the Initial tally. Aber-
crombie of the city corps evened
things up a few moments later when
he beat both Varsity backs and the
goalie single handed. Des Brisay and
Stevenson figured in some pretty combination which resulted in the former
putting the students one up before
half time.
The start of the second canto was
featured by the work of Stevenson on
the Varsity right wing, who beat his
man consistently sending across many
centres one of which DesBrisay capitalized to make the score 3-1. Vancouver replied to this insult by a terrific offensive with the great Gerry
Brown, ace of all coast hockey players,
leading the attack. Dicks, in the college fort saved a sizzling shot from
Brown and then Abercrombie, who
in the opinion of several players was
lying off-side, got the pill on a pass
from centre field and
drove it right through
the twine. Vancouver
continued to press but
its strengthened forward line resulted in a
weakened defence
which afforded DesBrisay the opportunity to
register the students'
final point bringing the
M. OeeBriaay count to  4-2.
With only six minutes to play the
city squad concentrated in a supreme
effort. A six man forward line surged
down the field, broke on the Varsity
defence, forced a corner and then
Brown sent the sphere hissing through
the air to find the top corner of the
net. Before further onslaught could
be made the final whistle announced
that the college eleven was entitled to
add two points to its total.
Those officiating for Varsity
were: Dicks, Lee, Sangha, Jakeway,
Hughes, Delap, Parsons, DesBrisay,
Semple and Stevenson.

Rowers Wilt 9-0 Before Unbeaten Students
Varsity Senior MB" scrummerg took one more step toward the
'hard-to-get' league title last Saturday at Douglas Park, beating
Rowing Club 9-0. It was not good rugby, due in great part to the
slippery ball and the fact that Varsity never was in much danger.
The referee failed to turn up and Gil Mcllmoyle took over the
whistle and made rather a good job.
Varsity rushed Rowing Club back from the whistle, but loose
play prevented a score. The students

Dong. Gordon Leads Student Win
In the midst of the muddy morass
that was Athletic Park on Saturday
twelve members of Varsity's Canadian
Rugby Club managed to rout the Cougars by a 12-6 score. The game was
featured by a large amount of plain
and fancy wallowing by both sides
and the large number of foward passes, none of which were completed.
The first quarter was more or less
uneventful with Varsity scoring one
point on a kick to dead line shortly
after the kick-off. The rest of the
Eeriod was spent in centre field with
oth sides fumbling frequently.
In the second stanza the tide of
battle seemed to turn in the opposite
direction and Varsity was penned
within., its own 26 yard line. However,
W. R. Morrow relieved the situation
by a sensational run around the right
end up to the fifty yard line, and
Varsity went on the offensive for the
rest of the quarter.
After half time the students woke
up and after a more or less uninterrupted march down the field Doug.
Gordon slipped through the Cougar
line and scored. The touch down was
unconverted. Their success however,
was short lived. A little later Varsity
punted and Riley the Cougar back
field star ran the kick back through
the whole team to score a touchdown.
This unethical procedure roused
the student ire and, feeling that their
good nature had been abused they
attacked determinedly in the last period and scored within a few minutes,
and this time Gordon added the points
for conversion. This about finished
events so far as Varsity was concerned and the whistle concluded the
combat a shot time later.
University golfers travelled to
Seattle on Saturday to open the golfing season there with a match with
Washington Huskies. Led by Charlie
McCadden, Varsity found the unfamiliar course and the strenuous opposition of the Husky team too much
for it and was defeated by a 17-point

Rosen, White and Sevar were Washington's leading scorers. Final count

hard, hard roads. Wednesday should
bring with it a host of aspiring field
men to show their wares under the
eagle eyes of Coaches Dave Richardson and Dr. Bricker.

Inter-Class Track Meet
Wednesday Mar. 11
kept on the attack for some time but
while the ball came out of the scrum
well the threes were finding it hard to
handle. About half-way through after
a long dribble, Grant picked up a
loose ball and went over near the nag.
Tye made a fine effort but his conversion was just off.
Varsity continued to press all
through and was only in danger once
or twice. Rowing Club had an eight-
man scrum and much more weight,
often succeeding in breaking through
for short dribbles. On the tight scrum.
Rowing Club extra weight was of
little avail and Varsity heeled two
out of three times.
The second half was very similar
in that Varsity did most of the pressing and was not often threatened.
The ball was getting worse to handle.
Hall made a fine run but with only
the fullbacks to meet, passed wide to
Brown. Hanbury was nearly over
but passed to Henderson who was
smeared. Varsity contrived to foree
the play and about halfway through
"Snake" Gwyer took the ball and
passed to Burns who ran twenty-five
yards for a try between the posts.
The slimy ball was too much for Tye.
Shortly afterwards, on another forward rush Grant broke away and
passed to Senkler who went over for
Varsity's final score. Senkler's conversion kick just missed. The whistle
ended the game with the ball in mid-
Varsity was not up to form, neither
in the pack or in the backfield. Tye
was safe as usual at fullback and had
plenty of time to feel disgusted at
the rather sloppy play.
This places Varsity two points up
on the Ex-King George in the league
with four games to play/
The team: "Tye, Henderson, Gwyer, Stobie, Hanbury, Callan, Fogg,
Hall, D. Brown, Pearson, Burns (c),

To the strains of "Take me Back
to Chilliwack," the Varsity "C" Badminton team returned home Sunday
night after having held the Chilliwack
badmintoners to a 12 all draw. Despite inclement weather conditions
and a scarcity of restaurants in the
town a pleasant time was had by all.
This was another link in the Chilli-
wack-Varsity amity begun by the
soccer team.
Denis Nichols was the pick of the
Varsity team, and by his continual
slamming to the back line kept his
opponents breathless. Margaret Moscrop and Margaret Palmer played two
excellent ladies' doubles, which proved
the feature games of the afternoon.

Flash On Basketball Deadlock
Following a lengthy conference
held on the campus late yesterday at
which members of the students' council and the executive of the Vancouver
and District League considered the
controversy that has developed regarding the use of the Varsity gym
for the overdue playoffs, it was announced that no definite decision has
as yet been reached. Headed by Lynne
Pickler, president of the V. and D.
group, the executive put forth a demand that in each game of the series.
the students turn the first $320 over
to the league, after that deducting
25 per cent, of the gross receipts for
rental. This the council refused to
sanction, but have drawn up a compromise agreement in which the Alma
Mater society will take a quarter of
the takings in the first home game,
and if the amount turned over to the
league is less than the sum asked, the
students will play the remaining home
games under the terms asked by the
downtown officials, as well as making
up the deficit of the first game.
The new proposal will be submitted
to the executive for consideration at
once, and it is hoped that the argument will be settled in order to arrange for the opening tilt at Varsity
on Saturday, March 7.
