Of Topics
Two professors and nine students
comprised the British Columbia delegation to the Northwest Students International Conference at Reed College, Portland, November 28-30, 1930.
This conference, which has become an
annual event, was attended by 113
registered delegates from seventeen
schools and colleges of the Pacific
Northwest. Prominence was attached
to the U. B. C. group in that it was
the only delegation from outside the
borders of the United States.
The program of the conference
centred around two main sections,
each of four Round Tables. Each delegate attended two of these discussion
groups, which comprised:
(1) China's Relations with the
Great Powers, led by Dr. Meribeth
Cameron, Reed College.
(2) Relations of the United States
and Latin America, under joint direction of Dean U. G. Dubach and Professor P. A. Magruder, both of Oregon State College;
(3) Psychology on International
Relations, presided over by Dr. George
M. Stratton, University of California.
This group, which drew the largest
attendance, was perhaps outstanding
in the variety of expressions of opinion which it brought forth.
(4) Russia's Interest and Influence
in the Pacific, led by Professor F. H.
Soward, U. B. C.
The second section was made up of:
(5) Government of Mandates and
Dependencies, under Professor L. A.
Mander, University of Washington;
(6) Psychology of International
by M. Pierre de Lanux, Director of
the Paris Information Office of the
League of Nations, and one of the
many outstanding personalities in attendance;

DEBATERS |T0 BE EXCHANGED
WITH PRAIRIE COLLEGES
IN DOUBLE CONTEST
Of considerable interest to university students are the forthcoming
Western Union Debates to be held
on Friday, January 16. The four
Western provinces, B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba take part in
this intercollegiate league. The subject for the debate this year is "Resolved that Dominion status be immediately granted to India." Jack
Sargent and Jordon Guy of U.B.C.
will uphold the negative side at the
University of Alberta, while Earl
Vance arid Bill Whimster will take
the affirmative side against a team
from the University of Saskatchewan,
which is travelling to British Columbia.
MEDICAL NOTICE
The attention of students is drawn
to the lists which have been placed
on the I'niversity Health Service
notice board. All students whose
names appear on these lists, report
immediately to the University Health
Service. No. 306 Auditorium building.
Totem Photographs
Must Be Ready
By Jan. 18
Once again with the opening of
the Spring term the "Totem" staff
has begun the arduous task of producing an annual in honor of the
graduating classes. Owing to lack
of office room, the Annual board no
longer associates with the other members of the Publications Board, but
has moved to the Arts basement,
where they have a new office.
The "Totem" staff is made up of
the following: editor, Doris Barton;
associates, Isabel Bescoby and Rosemary Winslow; assistants, Marion
Hamilton  and  Marion  Sangster.
All members of the graduating
classes, either in Arts, Commerce, Science, Nursing, Agriculture or Theology, who have not had their pictures
taken already, must be photographed
at Wadds' Studio, 1318 Granville, by
January 18. Members of the following executives must also be photographed by January 18.
Women's Undergrad Executive,
Men's Undergrad  Executive,
Women's Athletic Executive,
Men's Athletic Executive,
Students'  Council,
Publications Board,
Publications Business Management,
Manager System,
Arts  Men's  Undergrad  Executive,
Science Men's Undergrad Executive,
Agriculture   Men's   Undergrad   Executive,
Literary and Scientific Executive,
Combined Senior Executive.
All Athletic teams must be photographed at Wadds' not later than
January 24.
All personal write-ups of the students of '31 must be handed in to the
Annual office, Arts basement, not later
than Friday, January 17. These
write-ups should not be less than 65
words and should not exceed 80 words
and should be written or typed on
one side only of theme size paper.
Each write-up should be headed by
the name in full of the graduate and
should contain a summary of the student's career at university and not an
eulogy. Students are asked to refrain from using worn-out platitudes in these write-ups.
A list of the members of '31, arranged in pairs, has been posted on
the notice board in the quad. Each
student will be responsible for handing in the write-up of the student
with which he is paired. Any complaints should be made immediately
to the editor. Members of Theolgy
will be responsible for turning in
their own write-ups, as they have not
been   grouped.
Presidents of the various clubs and
classes will be held responsible for
the write-ups of their clubs and letters, stating the number of words
allotted, have been posted in the Arts
letter rack. The Presidents of the
various teams will be responsible for
the photos of their teams and will
receive letters giving the number of
words for the write-up in the Arts
i Letter rack. For further details
I apply to the editor of the "Totem."
TREASURER OF A. M. S.
RESIGNS FROM COUNCIL.
NOMINATIONS CALLED FOR
The resignation of S. T. Fraser,
Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society,
has been regretfully accepted by the
Students' Council. Ill health has
made it inadvisable for him to continue with his Council duties and
keep up his Science course.
The new Treasurer will be elected
on Friday, January 23, and the last
day for nominations is Friday, January 16, at 5 p.m. Nomination papers
must have ten signatures, and should
be given to the Secretary of the Alma
Mater Society, Margaret Muirhead.
According to the A. M. S. constitution, the Treasurer must be in his
Junior year in any faculty. He administers the finances of the Alma
Mater Society and oversees the work
of all sub-treasurers.
Prof. //• F. Angus
Appointed Head
Of Economics
PROF. H. F. ANGUS, who has
been appointed head of the Department of Economies, Sociology and Political Science to succeed
Dr. T. H. Boggs, received his B.A.
degree at McGill and his B.C.L. and
M.A. degrees at Oxford. He has been
on the staff of the University of British Columbia since 1919 and is one
of the representatives of the Faculty
of Arts and Science on the University  Senate.
Professor Angus graduated from
McGill in 1911 with first-class honors
in economics and political science.
He continued his studies at Oxford
and received the coveted law degree
with first-class honors in 1914. He
was then called to the bar in England.
During trie war Professor Angus
served in the army, chiefly in India
and Mesopotamia. In 1919 he obtained his M.A. from Oxford, and
when the Khaki University of Canada
was organized after demobilization,
he became head of the Department
of Law under Dr. H. M. Tory. His
appointment to the staff of the Department of Economics at the University of British Columbia followed
shortly  afterwards.
Short Course Again Offered
In Practical Agriculture
The Department of Agriculture is
again offering its short course for
those interested in practical agriculture. The classes began on Monday
with a large attendance. The fee is
one dollar and no prerequisites are
required.
A sample of barley from a grain
pit of the time of Solomon, found at
Tell-Fara, Palestine, can be seen in
Dean Clement's office. This sample
is a gift of the Royal Ontario
Museum.
VICTORIOUS PRAIRIE TEAM
TO PLAY HOME RUGGERS
IN B. C. NEXT NOVEMBER
SASKATOON—Prof. E. A. Hardy
was re-elected president of the
Western Canada Intercollegiate Rugby
Union at its annual meeting held at
the University of Saskatchewan, Saturday afternoon.
Dr. G. M. Shrum of the Uni-
v ersity of British Columbia and Prof.
K. W. Gordon of the University of
Saskatchewan, were re-elected vice
president and secretary-treasurer respectively. The presidents of the four
Western colleges are the honorary
officials.
The following schedule for 1931
was drawn up and approved.
Oct. 10—Alberta at Manitoba.
Oct. 17—Saskatchewan  at  Alberta.
Oct. 24—Alberta at  Saskatchewan.
Nov. 7—Manitoba at Saskatchewan
Nov. 9—Manitoba at Alberta.
By an agreement made in 1930, the
University of British Columbia does
not travel this year, but entertains
the prairie winners in a two- game
series. The dates for these games
were set for November 11 and 14.
A motion was made that the Eastern Intercollegiate Union be asked
to consider the possibility of an East-
vs.-West playdown. Owing to the
prairie teams making the trip to the
coast, it is doubtful if a Canadian
intercollegiate final will be feasible
this fall.
The meeting went on record as being in favor of the forward pass as
used during 1930.
Faculty and Governors Revive Stadium Plan
By Private Contribution of $5,800 to Fund;
Council Nominates Committee For Campaign
REPORT ON FRATERNITIES FINDS STUDENTS' COUNCIL SUPREME
Schultz Emphatic
In Denunciation
Of Home Spirit
That the prairie universities of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
are strikingly Canadian in spirit, in
contrast to the mongrel and undecided
sentiment in British Columbia, was
the emphatic declaration of Charles
Schultz, when he reported on the
Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Conference at Saskatoon to the Students' Council, Wednesday evening. He states that the
Western Canada Canadian Rugby
final will be decided in British Columbia next November, when the winner of the prairie series travels here.
In addition, maintained Schultz,
there is manifest in citizens of the
prairie provinces a greater sympathy
with and a deeper interest in (including financial interest) the universities of their respective provinces.
A real pride in the local university
and a sense of proprietorship and
kinship were evident which, according to Schultz, are mainly lacking in
British  Columbia.
In deploring this situation, Hutchison declared that the support which
other Canadian universities receive
should put the British Columbia taxpayers "to shame." The fact that
the local graduates have won, in a
relatively short time, nearly $500,000
in scholarships is, of itself, sufficient
evidence of the value of the University, he thought.
Council expressed itself in favor of
doing everything possible to strengthen the ties with prairie colleges by
conferences and athletic meets. It
was also thought that, in common
with the policy of other universities,
a faculty representative should be sent
with student delegates to all conferences.
In the University of Saskatchewan,
Schultz reported, six students and
five members of faculty form the
governing body of the students and,
generally, there is a greater participation by the faculty in undergraduate activities. Half of the coaches'
salaries is paid by the faculty and a
gymnasium director's total salary
Buying a book of tickets, which admit to all home games, is made part
of the Alma Mater fee and, according
to Schultz, proves very successful in
securing adequate support for athletic teams.

Rhodes Scholar, 1930
STOCK of the proposed University stadium soared once more
when, at the meeting of the Students' Council Wednesday
evening, it was revealed that the Faculty Association has
contributed over $2,500 privately and that the Board of Governors has voted a further $3,300 toward the project. This total
of over $5,800 will be used in preparing the grounds and playing
field in preparation for the erection of a stadium. The authorities have made it clear, however, that the building of the stand
itself is entirely dependent on the efforts of the students.
The Students' Council was unanimous in its approval and
appreciation of this quite unsuspected move on the part of the
Faculty Association, and also unanimous in the conviction that
the student body should supplement the already subscribed $5,800
by an additional amount of at least $10,000.   To organize and
direct a campaign toward this end a
committee, composed of Don Hutchison, President of the Alma Mater
Society, Charles Schulti, President of
the Men's Athletic Association, Ronald Grantham, Editor-in-chief of the
Publications Board, Prof. H. F. Angus
and Prof. G. M. Shrum, was asked
to serve.
Initiative Now With A.M.S.
In announcing the fund so far raised
the communication from the Faculty
reads in part, "In this way a beginning has been made with an urgent
task, but this beginning will be almost useless unless others are ready
to carry on the work. It is often the
first step which is the most difficult to
take. The Faculty Association felt ,-;
that it could take this first step but |
only by prompt and vigorous action, i
which could be justified only'TJy'faKHT
in the ability of the Student Body to
take full advantage of the opportunity created. The Association is confident that its faith will be justified.
But its task ends here, the initiative
now lies with the Student Body, and
on their efforts it will depend whether
next winter's games can be played on
the University grounds." The letter
is signed by Prof. H. F. Angus on
behalf of the Faculty Association.
Aid from Government
It is not known whether it is still
possible to get a share of the Dominion Government's $20,000,000 Unemployment Relief Fund to supplement
whatever money is raised by the students. According to Hutchison this
may be done. In any case, he affirms,
if the Alma Mater Society follows up
the initial movement of the Faculty
with substantial contributions a cam-a
pus stadium is assured, even without'
Federal or Provincial assistance.
Fraternity Report
A committee, consisting of Alan
Campbell, chairman, Margaret Muirhead and Prof. H. T. Logan, was appointed by Council in November "to
investigate and report on the relations between the Students' Council
and Fraternities and Sororities on the
Campus." The report, which was
adopted without amendment by Council, re-defined the jurisdiction of the
Students' Council over the Inter-
fraternity Council and the Panhellenic
Association. ". . . Student's Council
does not actively supervise," reads
the report, "deeming it expedient to
place the entire responsibility of the
functioning of the various fraternities,
in accordance with the rules set forth
by the Alma Mater Society governing all subsidiary bodies, with the
Inter-fraternity Council and the Panhellenic Association, and it is only in
such cases as this Students' Council
feels that the Inter-fraternity Council
and the Panhellenic Association are
failing to carry out their duty and responsibility, that Students' CoundH
shall take such steps as ire necessarj
The Inter-fraternity Council and th,
Panhellenic Association are directlj
responsible to Students' Council, a*
minutes and proceedings of theii
meetings to be submitted for approval!
to Students' Council."
JAMES A. GIBSON
A brilliant testimonial for an unimpaired scholastic record consistently maintained was received by James
Gibson in the award of the Rhodes
Scholarship. Entering U. B. C. in
his Junior year from Victoria College
Mr. Gibson immediately took a pronounced interest in all student activities. He was connected with the
Players' Club in the spring performance and was later elected Treasurer
of that society. Secretary of the International Relations Club, twice intercollegiate debater, member of the
Historical Society.and a committee
member of the Valedictory Committee for '81 are some of his attainments. As an athlete Mr. Gibson has
distinguished himself in his connection with the Gym Club, a newly
formed Camus organization in the interest of physical development.
Dr. J. H. Kergin of Prince Rupert,
now attending the University of
Toronto, was elected Rhodes Scholar
for 1929.

Choosing A New Treasurer
The regrettable resignation of the Treasurer of the Alma
Mater Society makes an election necessary two weeks from to-day.
The successful candidate will occupy a position of great responsibility, and this means that great care must be exercised in making the choice. It is no time of year for a student who knows
little or nothing about the business of being a treasurer to take
over the finances of the Alma Mater Society. One qualification
that is of special importance, therefore, is experience. The new
incumbent must be familiar with banking and book-keeping, and
the voters should bear this in mind on election day.
Evolution of a College Rag
October 17, 1918, was an historic day, because it witnessed
the first issue of a journal called the "Ubyssey" at the University
of British Columbia. Published once a week under the editorship
of I. A. Shaw, the paper boasted eight pages, three columns wide
and rather abreviated in length. The first enlargement came in
1921 under A. H. Imlah, when another column was added and the
length increased. In 1925 when the University moved into the
new buildings on Point Grey, the "Ubyssey" rose to the occasion,
and A. Earle Birney was the first editor of a larger paper, five
columns wide, published twice a week. To-day the fourth expansion is consummated, for the "Ubyssey" has added a sixth column
and again increased in length. The use of a lower grade of paper
and the creation of a Sport Page are other developments marking
an evolution towards the realization of that dream of student
journalists—a university daily.
CLASS AND CLUB NOTES
And Again—"Cluck, Cluck!"
FUN AND FUNDAMENTALS
A  New Venture
Something new under the sun of
bookishly-minded Western Canada is
the monthly magasine "The Anvil,"
published this month for the first
time by two former U.B.C. students.
All questions of interest are to be
laid out on this Anvil and hammered
out "to the satisfaction of all."
In an environment where such brilliant efforts as "The Common Round"
and "The Western Idea" failed to
find a response, "The Anvil" will
have a hard row to hoe. But the
first issue looks good; even under-
grads, I verily believe, could read it
and like it. Economics students
shouldn't miss the two articles; faithful readers of the Literary Supplement will find a grand discussion of
war-books; common or garden readers
will enjoy the story about the Speaking Devil. No, little radio audience,
this last is not an explanation of the
picture on the top of the Muck Page,
but even so it is exciting.
"The Anvil" is publirhed monthly
by The Anvil Publishing Co.. 1746
Haro Street.

S.C.M. Camp
About forty students attended the
series of addresses and discussions
on the topic of "Christianity and
Culture" at the S.C.M. annual Christ-
mas camp, held at the Y.W.C.A. camp,
Copper Cove, last week-end, January
2-3-4.
Consideration of the theme began
Saturday morning with an address by
Mr. Trumpour of the Anglican College. This revealed a different emphasis — Christianity being possibly
more emotional and culture necessarily  intellectual.
Dr. Sedgewick presented the view
of culture held by Matthew Arnold,
showing that the two forces are essentially the same.
Mrs. Herbison kindly acted as hostess for the Camp.
Arts '32 Supports

SOME SHOCKING SEDITION
Our solicitous chaperons, the members of Council, have cause to congratulate themselves on the partial
success of the bluff they pulled in
disapproving of the Victoria Invasion.
Barely one hundred students made
the trip this year as compared with
over two hundred on previous occasions. Yet one wonders at the inexplicable docility of the student body
which submits to all the whims of
nine of its members whom it elected
to do its executive work.
While on this mournful topic, let
us muse upon some of the past actions
of the "People's choice."
The attempted drive for a college
stadium is without doubt a very
worthy effort, but has been productive
of some remarkable incidents. The
Alma Mater meeting on the question
witnessed one of the most naive attempts at "railroading" ever essayed
here. Speakers and motions were
continually declared out of order, and
the question was put three times before the chairman was satisfied that
the students "knew what they were
voting for."
Following this meeting it was discovered that a quorum of three-
quarters of the student body had not
been present. Our ingenious friends
thereupon decided that the clause in
the constitution concerning the quorum had been hitherto misinterpreted
and proceeded to give it a new meaning whereby any number of students
—even one alone, I take it—could legally pass amendments to the bylaws.
However this manoeuvring was all
in vain, for the Board of Governors
quashed the resolution. A day or two
later, Council arose in its wrath and
demanded a hearing before the Board.
After the applause had subsided it
transpired that the outburst of righteous indignation had not been caused
by the thwarting of student aspirations but because the representatives
of our adolescent Olympus had not
been received with the respect that
they felt was their due. The Governors smoothed the affair over by patting them on the head, telling them
what big little men they were and
sending them back, mollified, to the
nursery.
None of this is news, but its repi-
tition may perhaps help to counteract the Council's tendency to surround
itself with an aura of superiority.
Its members sometimes forget that
they are the public servants of the
undergraduate "untouchables."
Still one must remember that,
even if they sometimes forget themselves, they  mean well.

F. DALLAS, Bursar
REVIEWING the records of debating in the University of
British Columbia, with special
reference to the defeat of Richard
Yerburgh and James Gibson by H.
Trevor Lloyd and John Mitchel. it
is impossible to refrain from unfavorable comment.
The British team, polished, experienced and brilliant, completely van-
?uished the U.B.C, representatives,
et this same Overseas team, outstanding though it was, received defeat at the hands of at least three
Canadian universities in their transcontinental tour. Three Canadian
universities, two of them no bigger
than our own, were able to produce
debaters who were superior to the
seasoned British speakers.
Three reasons appear to have contributed to the local team's defeat:
(1) Insufficient debating practice
and experience in the University as
a whole.
(2) A regrettable lack of preparation on the part of the U.B.C. representatives.
(8) An ignorance of the technique
and etiquette of debating.
In regard to (1) the British Columbia team was not at fault. The
indifference to public speaking is
but another manifestation of the intellectual stagnation in which the
University finds itself. A student
forum, in which controversial subjects
are discussed in a lively and oftentimes radical manner by the best
brains and wit of the college, is the
surest evidence of the intellectual activity which a university ic supposed
to foster. Its absence here is significant and regrettable.
The second is a delicate point. One
cannot know the amount of preparation which went into the speeches of
Messrs. Yerburgh and Gibson. One
can judge only from results. Both
speakers appeared uncertain: they
did not possess that grasp of the subject which enables one to look at it
from all angles, to turn it over in the
mind and adjust oneself to new phases
and developments. The British team,
in striking contrast, understood the
problems of Imperial trade superlatively well. They could have made
a convincing argument in support of
either side of the case, and this is
the finest test of forensic excellence.
With regard to matters of technique
and etiquette, both local speakers
erred and ,to some extent perhaps,
the British team did also. One of the
U. B. C. men spoke over his time
limit in solemn defiance of mirth-provoking signals from the time-keeper.
A wrist-watch, held in the palm ol
the hand, remedies this fault.
The other British Columbia speaker
committed graver sins. He came perilously close to downright insult in his
remarks about both the present British Premier and the former Canadian Government and, by doing so, he
created a most unfavorable impression. At the close of his speech this
same speaker made some personal
remarks about his opponents which,
although undoubtedly spoken in a
cordial feeling, nevertheless sounded
in extremely bad taste.
University of British Columbia
debaters should remember that wit,
and repartee, used judiciously, are
among the finest assets of a speaker,
since they enable him to fix and to
hold the attention of his audience.
The British team provided an example
of scintillating and, almost effortless,
wit, which local speakers should emulate in some degree.

Magazine Venture
Is Welcomed
Anvil On Sale At Bookstore
JUNIOR RUGGERS PREPARE
FOR STRENUOUS SEASON
I Having pretty well cleaned up their
pre-Christmas schedule the Canadian
Rugby second team is entering upon
a new season with every hope of
success. The former Junior team,
which won the B.C. Championship
before Christmas will furnish several members of the new intermediate
team. In addition to these there are
others who were previously unable to
play because of the age limit. The intermediate league will include, Varsity, Dodekas, V.A.C. and Meralomas
and these four teams promise to give
plenty of exitement as they are evenly
matched and are all hard fighters.
The first game takes place on January 17 at McBride Park between
Varsity and Dodekas.
THE "ANVIL" is the appropriate
title of a new magazine just issued in Vancouver by Vernon van
Sickle and Frank Pilkington, two former university students. It is the intention of the publisheers to provide
a forum in which current controversies may be discussed—an anvil on
which matters may be hammered out
to thee satisfaction of all concerned.
"The 'Anvil' is a monthly magazine
dealing with current affairs and
literature, with a special appeal to
the Western Canadian viewpoint,"
announces the introductory editorial.
Stories, plays, book reviews and
poems will be regular features, and
In this way it is hoped to help develop Canadian literature and encourage
Canadian authors.
This first issue has not disappointed
those whose curiosity was aroused by
its announcement some weeks ago.
An attractive red cover encloses Interesting and varied reading matter.
Professor H. F. Angus, new Head of
the Department of Economics, writes
on "Canadians of Oriental Race."
He urges equal opportunity for all
Canadians and argues against those
of Oriental origin being subjected to
disabilities. Dr. S. Petersky presents
"The Jewish Problem," and Ands the
solution to be the supporting, by both
Jew and Gentile, of the development
of Palestine as the Jewish homeland.
"They have been a valuable contribution to the sum total of human experience," declares Noel Robinson in
dealing with 'War Books—Are They
Worth While?' This article is an
able discussion of the flood of war
books that has been released. The
writer condems some of the more recent ot these books, but defends the
best of them, giving special attention
to "All Quiet on the Western Front."
Captain N. Colin Duncan, late of
the West African Frontier Force, has
contributed a vivid and humorous
story about a native inventor in "The
Speaking Devil of Suboma." L. Bullock Webster's play "He Passed
Through Samaria0 is published for
the first time. It was one of three
plays selected by the League of
Western Writers for production at
Berkeley, California, in October, 1930.
Alice Brewer represents the Muse,
as does Annie Charlotte Dalton, prominent Canadian poet.
There is a definite need in Western
Canada for a magazine of the type
of the "Anvil," and if the favorable
reception accorded this first number
of the new publication is any indication, the success of the venture is assured. Western Canadian writers
and many of the thinking public are
rallying to the support of the "Anvil,"
and the courage and enterprise of its
publishers seems justified.
Knowledge that a larger issue is
planned for February arouses anticipation, and if a suggestion may be
made it is that more fiction and
poetry be included. Book reviews
would also add to the interest of the
magasine.

HORRIFIED HISTORIAN
TRAPPED IN TRANSIT
Trapped in the library elevator,
Prof. F. H. Soward was rescued from
a lingering death by the vigilant library staff. The ringing of the emergency buzzer at the main desk gave
the first hint of the accident and a
wrecking crew, despatched immediately, arrived on the scene of the mishap, Floor 4, in time to avert a fatality, Professo:* Soward declined to
make any comment to a Ubyssey reporter.

(7) India, in charge of Professor
H. F. Angus, U. B. C., one of the
most interesting of all groups because
of India's position in the forefront of
world affairs today;
(8) Food, Population and Immigration, under guidance of Professor
Victor P. Morris, University of Oregon, and which covered a very wide
range of ideas.
In addition to the Round Table
meetings, a series of general lectures
and two evening symposiums, followed by forum discussions, gave
further opportunity for the wide and
varied expressions of opinion which
proved, perhaps, the most noteworthy
feature of the entire conference.
The following day Professor Angus
presented a most helpful survey of
the main points considered in each
of the eight Round Tables. An address by M. de Lanux on "The Place
of the League of Nations in Civilization," carrying on from the previous
day, brought more discussion of an
informative character. The evening
symposium on "America's Role in
World Peace," with Professor Bernard Noble, Reed College, as Chairman, was addressed, in addition, by
M. de Lanux, Professor Charles E.
Martin, University of Washington,
Professor Soward, and Maj.-Gen.
Charles H. Martin, Congressman-
elect. This latter gentleman created
a mild sensation by his outspoken
pronunciation of the Kellogg Pact as
"bunk," but a very extensive discussion was called forth.
The concluding item on the conference program was an International
service in Reed College Chapel.
The 1931 conference is again to be
held at Reed College, which has the
advantage of splendid accommodation
for visiting delegates. The hope was
expressed that U. B. C. would again
be largely represented at the next conference.
In addition to Professor Angus and
Professor Soward, the following made
up the British Columbia representation: Maud Hutson, Katharine Hockin,
Ethel McDowell, T, Yasuda. Jerry

The Handicap Knockout Tournament, the main event of the first term
was won by Ed Olund, when he defeated Reid Fordyce in the finals.
Fordyce opened with a strong game
but overlooked a fork of his king and
queen in the twelfth move and was
forced to concede the game a few
moves later.
The "Miniature Chess" match also
resulted in a victory for Olund by
a margin of half a point over H.
Bischoff. S. Jackson came third
with half a point below Bischoff.
The season will be started with a
Give-away Tournament in the Gym,
on Wednesday, January 14 at 3 p.m.
All those wishing to play should practise in advance so as to gain as much
proficiency as possible.

Varsity's Senior A Women's basketball squad came close to ending its
long line of victories when it beat the
Witches team by only two points in
the game held Wednesday night, in
the Varsity gym. The final score of
12-10 shows now closely the play ran
throughout the game.
Two of the leading lights of the
college team, Thelma Mahon and
Claire Menten were checked so well
that they were unable to gain a single
point. Varsity led 9-7 at the end of
the first half, and in spite of all their
efforts neither side scored during the
third quarter. Not until the last
quarter, with a minute to go, and an
even score of 1040 was Varsity saved
by Mary Campbell gaining the winning basket.
The Varsity team lined up as follows: Campbell (8), Menten, Tour-
tellotte, Dellert (1), Whyte (3), Mun-
ton, Mahon—12.

FIRST TILT TO ADANACS
The Varsity Settlor "A" Men's Basketball team will play the
first home game of the second half of the Vancouver and District
League schedule tonight when the Students will oppose Shores in
the Varsity Gym. 	
Unable to cope with the speed of the Dominion Champions
on the large Arena floor, a bewildered basketball team from the
University of B. C. dropped its first game in 11 starts when the
New Westminster Adanacs handed it a 26-18 trimming at
the Royal City gym Wednesday. In one of the fastest games
seen here in several years the brilliant Blue and Gold aggregation showed plenty of class and was in no way outmatched
throughout the fray.   The battle em-
[ihasized the weakness of the Students
n converting foul shots.' Had the
Varsity boys been able to make a
reasonable percentage of the free
throws count they would have added
another fixture to the long string of
victories. As it wan the collegians
were only able to garner two points
on twelve tosses.
Adanacs gave one of the most
polished exhibitions in the hoop game
that they have put on for some time
and they needed it all to vanquish the
up-and-coming proteges of Dr. Garnet Montgomery. It was the brilliant
■hooting of Ted McEwen that gave
the New Westminster squad the edge.
Four long heaves early in the second
period after the two teams had battled
on almost even terms in the opening
frame put the champions well out
in front and they were able to hold
the lead.
Arnold Henderson, Skipper of the
Vanity aggregation, turned in a wonderful performance for the students
while Pi Campbell and Robbie Chapman were also brilliant.

TRIMMED BY VICTORIA TEAMS
The Varsity Badminton team went
down to defeat before the Victoria
teams at the annual invasion held
last week-end. U. B. C. opposed the
Willows Club Friday evening and was
beaten by the score 13-3. Holmes and
Shiels won both their men's doubles
while Solly and Phae Van Dusen
won their first game, and lost their
second by one point. Saturday afternoon the team met the Garrison
players, the strongest in Victoria, and
were again defeated 13-3. The games
were well-played and showed good
badminton on both sides. Solly and
Atkinson won their men's matches
while Holmes and Margaret Palmer
were successful in one mixed contest
In spite of three substitutes from the
second team, Varsity put up an excellent fight against the Victorians,
The team was: Phae Van Dusen, Margaret Palmer, Eleanor Everall, Bunny Pound, Nic Solly, Terry Holmes,
Ken Atkinson, Tommy Shiels,
Grass Hockeyists Optimistic
University men's grass - hockey
teams will both have their initial
games of the term next Saturday,
when Varsity tangles with Crusaders
at Brockton Point and U.B.C. comes
up against the league leaders, Vancouver, at lower Connaught.
Absence of players compelled both
of the college teams to cancel their
games scheduled for last Saturday.
•This misfortune combined with the
poor showing made before Christmas
has placed the teatrs at the foot of
the league table. New Year optimising however, is in evidence among
the players and rosy hopes for the
future are entertained by members
of  both   aggregations.
The Varsity versus U.B.C. game,
which was postponed from December 6th, will be played on Wednesday, January 14th, at 3.30 p.m., at
Connaught Park.
Varsity McKechnie Ruggers sank
__ an ignominious place at the bottom of the league when they received
an 8-0 defeat in their game with
Victoria during the annual Christmas
respite. Varsity pressed hard all
during the first half but lacked the
final push to make the Victoria men
kick off again. The blue and gold
forwards had the edge in the scrum
play, taking the ball eight out of
nine times in the first half, but the
threes were always smothered before
they crossed the final white line. Bar-
rat and Gaul got away to a fine run
but Turgoose of the "bird city" intercepted and raised the stands up on
their feet only to be stopped by
Mercer in his own quarter. Half time
found the fellow who looked after
the score-board fast asleep.
Early in the second half Turgoose
of Victoria woke the official scorer
from his nap when he rushed over
with Mercer and Cleveland trying to
pull off his shorts. Forbes easily added the two extra counters. There
was a pretty exhibition for a while
until Campbell Forbes outran Gaul
and Cleveland to plant the ball behind the "H." He failed to convert
and the game ended with Victoria on
the offensive.
Varsity: Cleveland; Gaul, Murdock,
Mercer, Ellis, P. Barrat; Eastabrook;
B. Barrat; Griffin, Rogers, Leding-
ham, Nixon, Mason, Murray, Mitchell.

CAMERA
This issue begins a new order of things as far as the Ubyssey
is concerned inasmuch as it will be the first occasion on which
this staid journal has run a regular sport page. The sport department has struggled for a long long time for the concession and all
that remains is to put it over. What we mean is, that it is up to
the various clubs to co-operate with us as they have never done before. In this manner it is hoped to eliminate all the weekly complaints made by club officials to the effect that they are not getting enough space and that their stories are being cut out. When
the laddies have news just let them trot along to us, and it will
be published later if not sooner.
The inter-class soccer league is now in full swing. In the
science league, the scarlet clad hordes of '84 are showing the way
chiefly owing to the deadly shooting of Eric Broadhurst, who has
netted all their goals. They are closely pursued by Science '81
and the Aggies. The farm labourers have shown unexpected
strength particularly in defence where Dave Ferguson and Wilf.
Lee wield wicked hoofs.
In the Arts league the proud sophomores are at present on
top of the heap but have not shown convincing form. Arts '32,
favorites, only played one match last term and have what on paper
seems to be a strong combination, at any rate strong enough to
clean up on the rest of the cultured tribe. Education also failed
to play more than once when the herculean efforts of black shirted
DesBrisay and the lusty exortations of Tommy Sanderson earned
the teachers a draw. The Theologs played most games but displayed in and out football athough they all talked great games.
An aggregation of boy wonders entitled the Senior A basket-
eers of the University B. C. have been astounding the down town
critics of the bounce and dribble game. In fact they held a soiree
last term at which the lofty Adanacs were guests and showed the
champs just why they are the idols of the Varsity crowd, which
was fully thirty strong. To a great extent the credit for the remarkable record flaunted by the Blue and Gold students should
go to Uncle Henderson who has coached and urged his youngsters
along since the beginning of the term. At the present time it
looks as if the team will go a long way if not all the way in the
Canadian championships this spring.
Soccerraen to Tangle
With Ancient Foes
Varsity Senior Sooccermen will
once more do or die for their Alma
Mater Saturday at Heather when
they will pay an afternoon call on
eleven vigourous young lads trying
to get along as Sons of England F. C.
"This term will see important
changes in the team line-up" quoth
Tommy Sanderson, Varsity managerial idol in a special interview granted
Wednesday to our soccer correspondent. Tommy expounded his views
gently but firmly for some time. Apparently Cox, erstwhile junior star
will occupy the right half berth,
which seems a daring experiment to
hard boiled Varsity fans. Nevertheless Cox is fast, a good tackier and
has a valuable knowledge of the
game. Waugh will move to left half
leaving Kozoolin as pivot. The famous
Varsity defense, hero of many a
tussle will remain as usual but there
are changes among the forwards.
Costain will return to lead the line
but Dave will be seen at inside right
while brother Alan, Varsity's most
effective forward, will be on the left.
"Bunny" Wright will be in his usual
place but Latta, versatile ace of the
Canadian code, will be bouncing 'em
on the extreme left. This is a strong
team and should produce results. If
not to quote the idealistic Sandy "If
these fellows don't get down to business, something's gonna happen."

In Inter-Class Soccer Fray
By virtue of a 1-0 win over Elmer
Dickson and eight other members of
Arts '32, Thursday, Education soc-
cerites scrambled up another rung in
the interclass league ladder. The
game was closely contested throughout and brought forth football of the
hit and miss, mostly miss, variety.
After a scoreless first half, DesBrisay
of Education scampered up the field
and slipped the pill past Cox who was
taking a promenade some distance
from his goal. Arts '32 pressed but
the game ended without further score.
For Education, Sanderson kept the
sphere in the adjoining orchard with
great success, while Dickson turned
in a nice game for '32 and lent valuable assistance to the ref.
NOTICES
From now on all inter-class soccer
Rnmes must be  played as scheduled
rain or shine.

Ex-South Van.  High at 2.45 p.m.
Runners Save the Day
Breaking the tape well ahead of
Cunningham, Island sprint flash, Pi
Campbell led a fast Varsity relay
team to victory on Saturday, January
3, at Royal Athletic Park, Victoria.
The race, which was run after the
McKechnie Cup game, was closely
contested throughout. The first lap
was even with Clarke of Varsity giving Allen a slight lead. Allen lost
the lead to Aldiss, handing the baton
to McTavish slightly in arrears. Mc-
Tavish faltered at the start but hit
his stride near the end of the lap and
finished with a burst of speed. Campbell's lap was sheer speed.
Cunningham had a five yard lead
when the baton was passed, but Campbell caught him early in the lap. From
there on the race was a procession
with Campbell steadily increasing the
lead.
SKATERS FORM PLANS
Particulars regarding privileges at
the Arena were announced at a general meeting of the Skating Club, held
on January 6. At a cost of $3.25 each,
members will have eight evenings of
skating. This considerable saving
has been made possible by the cooperation of the Arena management.
A dressing-room will also be provided but the club has to guarantee
seventy-five members. All those who
signed up are requested to purchase
their tickets immediately. These may
be procured from the Curator's
Office, or from  Club officials.
