Several Possible
Candidates For
A.M.S. Presidency
Malkin   Definitely   in   Race   for   Office
Gorrie, Wales. Ferris, Whimster May Run
With the final day for nominations for A.M.S. president
creeping up, there seems to be a cloud of mystery regarding the
names that will put up before the student body.
The only candidate who has definitely entered the race is
James Malkin, Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society. Malkin
when interviewed, verified the rumour that he will run for
Cam Gorrie, Junior Member, is be-6 —
big urged by his friends to accept a
nomination. He is "considering the
proposal," and stated that he will
make a decision in a couple of days.
It is thought by most of the cafeteria
Intelligentsia that Cam will run.
Bill Whimster. President of the
Arts Men, stated that he had an idea
who would be in the running, but
was not prepared to say anything at
this time. People are wondering if
Bill Is intending to contest the office
himself. He was president several
years ago, and his entry into campus
politics via the Arta Men is taken by
some to be the first step in a come
Jim Ferris, who resigned as Junior
Member early this year, does not
think that he. will be in the running.
"I am not going to push myself," he
stated, "but I have no idea whether
or not my associates want me to run."
Among the rumours that are going
the rounds is one to the effect that
Peggy Wales, Secretary of the Student Council, will be nominated. She
would be the first woman to seek
the presidential honou^ and would
probably have the support of the
women as against a split vote among
the men.
The last day for nominations is
next Wednesday, March 6. Th-e chairman of the committee on the election
is Walter Kennedy. Elections will
be held on March 12, with elections
for the other major offices directly

Rev. Paul Raps
Russian Church Betrayed
"The supreme Indictment of communism Is the product of a closed
mind. The whole system is the result of minds which have been burdened down by social Injustices," so
stated Reverend Elbert Paul in his
comparison between Communism and
Christianity on Wednesday noon.
"Communism is a distinct contrast
with Christianity. It is the reacting
gesture of despair since the Christian
Church in Russia so shamefully betrayed  all  things  which Christianity \ practice
Dr. W. A. Carrothers la still a member of the University and Is merely on
leave of absence, It was explained by
President Klinck, following the
monthly meeting of the board of Governors on Monday night. The statement was made to correct the erroneous Impression created by a recent
press report which stated that the
board was planning to appoint a successor to Dr. Carrothers.
The status of thc economist will
not b4 considered by the Board till
September 7, as his leave of absence
does not expire till then, it was further stated.
Dr. Carrothers was granted leave
of absence on January i, 1934, for
eight months, in order that he might
accept thc chairmanship of the Economic Council. At tho expiration
of this period, he was granted an extension of leave until September, 1935.
New Short Story Book
The Board acknowledged a number of recently issued publications by
members of tho faculty, including,
"A Century of Short Stories, 1824-
1927," edited by Prof. Thorleif Larsen
and Dr. W. L. MacDonald, which has
been authorized as a textbook; a thesis on trigonomctery by Prof, L. Richardson; a thesis on a method of detecting radio-active ores by Dr. G.
M. Shrum and Ronald Smith and
two pamphlets on respberry nutrition
by Dr. G. H. Harris and J J. Woods.
Reading Courses Planned
The Board endorsed a proposal of
the University Senate for inauguration of "directed reading courses," to
be given under faculty supervision
to extra-mural students. Courses
which are offered in Senior Matriculation or in which laboratory work or
in   pronunciation   are   re-
Cam Gorrie James Malkin
Cam Gorrie, present Junior Member and James Malkin present treasurer, occupy the two positions on Council that are expected to normally

the Ubyssey Mr. Malkin stated that he expected to run while Mr. Gorrie was
Other possible candidates are: Jim Ferris one time Junior Member, who
was forced to resign due to the fact that he lacked the required academic
standing; and Bill Whimster former president of the Alma Mater Society,

Communism Materialistic
"Communism is based upon a materialistic interpretation of human
life. It holds that there is nothing
beyond this unherse but cold brutal
force, that there is nothing beyond
the individual but himself and that
everything is the creation of man. Mr.
Paul asks, "What have you if you
take the influence of Cod away from
the home. Coi.ld you believe that a
thing does not exist because you have
not seen it. This' is what Communism teaches.
"The communist state is of necessity
based upon a dictatorship. The whole
meaning of personality and individuality is" suppressed. The speaker declared that 'Communism has succeeded not because of its inherent worth
or idealistic views but because the
people are forced to conform.
"Christianity however in direct contrast to Communism, leaves the door
open for broader views and expression."
Stamp Collection Accepted
A large stamp collection was presented to the University by Mr. J. N.
Harvey, member of the Senate. The

■ Besides the regular professors of
the universtiy, five from other colleges have been invited to lecture:
Dr. T. H. Boggs. Professor of Economics at Stanford; Dr. Peter Sandi-
ford, Professor of Education at Toronto; J. F. Macdonald, Assistant Professor of English, of Toronto; Dr. H.
A. Innis, Assistant Professor of Political Science and Lecturer in History, also of Toronto; and Dr. J. M,
McEarchran, Professor of Philosophy
at the University of Alberta.

time-tables may be obtained by the
doubtful at the Registrar's office.
Due to a slight complication concerning the Junior Queen
ballot box out at the foot of the caf stairs, the mode of election
has been changed.
The slight complications ensued due to the fact that several
overzealous supporters of the various candidates placed not only
their own ballots in the box but those of several unidentified
gentlemen. It is rumoured that two of the voters decided to
vote for some sixty odd people. Fortunately these rats in sheeps'
clothing have been caught and like the snakes they are they will
be dealt with severely.
The new method of voting is aa
follows: Every ticket purchaser gets
two votes for the Prom Queen.
This will insure that each candidate
gets at least two votes and nobody's
feelings will be hurt. The results
of the polling will be shown by, a
thermometer system in the quad
which will indicate the first three in
the field.
Who the fortunate person is to obtain this coveted honour of being
the Queen of the Junior Prom will
be announced at the Prom itself. The
executive have decided that the
Queen'will receive some suitable gift.
Two members of the executive left
for town yesterday afternoon to comb
the fifteen cent store for this stupendous present.
The tickets for the Junior squirm
are a mere $2.00 or twenty beers in
fraternity money. If anybody in the
class wishes to gamble their lives
away for a small sum they may pay
the class fees cf one dollar and enter the draw. If any member of Arts
'36 can convince any other member
of that class that the ideal way to
attend this function would be together they iruiy hand in their names
to the executive.
Brown To Talk
On 'Education
In Commerce'
Mr. Harold Brown is the lecturer
for Saturday evening's meeting of the
Vancouver Institute, which will be
held in Room 100, Arts Building, the
University of British Columbia. The
subject is "Education ln Commerce."
Mr. Brown is widely known
throughout thc city as a leader in
business affairs, and a citzien who
devotes much of his time and his recognized ability, to the problems of
civic and educational welfare. He is
an ex-president of the Vancouver
Board of Trade, and in that, and
many other capacities, i3 one of the
acknowledged leaders of Vancouver's
civic life.
Tile chair will be taken at 8:15 by
Mr. George E. Winter, President of
the Institute. The B.C. Electric Railway provides buses at Sasamat street
which go directly to the University
and wait there until the close of the
lecture. All Institute lectures arc
free to the public.
Ibsen's Hedda Gabler
Rates 'Esquire' Rave
All who have read or heard of "Esquire," that popular magazine for
men, will be interested to know that
Its sophisticated theatrical critic, Mr.
John V. A. Weaver, has some very
nice things to say of Miss Eva Le
Gallienne's production of "tledda
Gabler," thc Ibsen tragedy which in
less than two weeks the Players' Club
will present as its 20th annual spring
In his column, "Stage-Door Johnny,
Esq,"   Mr.   Weaver  writes:   "Eva  Le
Gallienne Repertory. Almost a must.
Excellent performances of "L'Alglon,"
"Hedda Gabler-' and "Cradle Song."
And, further, he says:
"Eva Le Galienne has resumed repertory, placing L'Aiglon into the
schedule. Her "Hedda Gabler" is a
highly interesting version, more human and humorous than any I've
seen before. It is astonishing how
modern that Ibsen hell-cat is — not
dated at all."

Another indication that the term Is

Council Meeting when the date of die
election of the President of the A.M.S.
was est as March 12. Nominations
close March 6 at five In the afternoon.
Elections for the other members of
Students Council will take place Immediately after that of the President.
The members of the election committee were named. Walter Kennedy, as President of the Men's Undergraduate Society, will act as chairman and will «be assisted by Rita
Wright, Gwen Pym, Mabel Falkins,
Jim Mitchell, Don Macdonald, Nelson
Odium, Margaret Winter, Jack Shaneman, Leona Nelson, and Ken Hentig.
The question of having an hour
and a hab! at midday, having met
with definate Faculty approval, will
be put before the Students at the
next Alma Mater meeting. The Arts-
men and Sciencemen may experience
trouble in staging their long-awaited
pep meetings since the Players Club
have requested that their "sets" on
the stage be not disturbed. Until
"Hedda Gabler"  is over.
Since the Musical Society had a
deficit of $300 in their production of
"Ruddigore," it may not be possible
for the Players Club to revive their
Spring Tour.
The Freshman party showed a $20
profit, while the Science Ball was reported to have broken exactly even,
which cheered the Treasurer considerably.
The Pacific Coast Lutheran College basketball team will visit U.B.C.

Disconsolate males whose hopes until now have been high, are advised

Co-eds who have not yet made the
supreme sacrifice of the annual two

still a number of tickets available.
There will be sixteen dances, though
no printed programs will be supplied.
Supper will be served in relays between 1? and 1 in the Italian Room.
To relieve the anxiety of certain
uninformed gentlemen, the Co-ed

escort to supply cash and transportation. Buttonhole bouquets are optional.

Next Wednesday is the last day for the filing of nominations for the presidency of the
Alma Mater Society.
As holder of this office is chiefly responsible
for the conduct of student affairs, it is important that the most suitable person should be
chosen for the position. The principal requirements are natural ability to lead his fellows,
sound judgement, tact, previous experience
and preferably ability as a public speaker.
Leadership is the most essential quality in the
co-ordination of so many varied activities as
come under the jurisdiction of the Alma Mater
Society; sound judgment is requisite to ensure
the conduct of these activities and of the general poicy of the Society in a sane manner;
tact is necessary to maintain harmony among
the various students and student organizations;
previous experience is very desirable because
it gives the person-a good understanding cf
undergraduate affairs and also permits of more
continuity in the policies of the Society from
one year to another; and public speaking ability is a great asset in conducting Alma Mater
meetings and uniting the students in a common cause.
At the same time the candidate for such
a position should realize that it will take a
great deal of his time and will be a constant
distraction from his academic work, and should
be prepared to accept this condition in allowing himself to be a candidate for the office.
Students who are interested in the welfare
of the Society should take immediate steps to
nominate the most suitable men on the campus,
so that the students will have an opportunity
to elect the person whom they consider most
fitted for this key position.
It is with much regret that we learn of the
death of Prof. H. N. Thomson, head of the department of metallurgy. During his teaching at
this university he made many friends both by
his teaching ability and friendly interest in his
His lectures were always punctuated with
a dry humor and marked by sly digs at students and colleagues. His sense of duty was
strong and up to the week of his death he persisted in giving lectures although his state of
health warranted a rest from work. It was
with mixed pity and admiration that his students saw him lecturing when he had scarcely
the strength to stand.
As a scholar he was considered throughout
the continent as an imminent authority on
metallurgy and had served in many prominent
positions in the industry. He always took a

Heaven only knows what to crab about to
day. Cotton-wool clouds are plastered in patterns against a blue enamel sky, the Howe
Sound peaks are cardboard cut-outs sprinkled
with mica snow, and the campus buildings
stand fresh and new in the young sunshine.
The usually squalid Pub has felt the change.
Zoe and Pauline are sitting lazily on a table
gazing out the window; Kemp pecks irresolutely at the keys of a typewriter, his legs stretched out under the table, and only Don Mac-
donald's melliflous voice breaks the silence
with a gentle babble as he lackadaisically keeps
alive an argument of which even he has forgotten the point.
An inrush at the end of the ten o'clock lecture hour breaks the, calm, eddys through our
backwater with a sudden spate of voice and
brisk movement, spews Hacking and DePoe
out of. a window in its passing rush, and recedes, leaving Cornish and Mayse stranded in
its track. John hangs over the counter mewing softly to himself; Arthur perches on the
other table, cigarette drooping from his mouth,
and gazes somberly past the unseen horizon
into the eternal ages of the past.
Baird and DePoe (returned via the door)
provide a drowsy and disregarded grasshopper
accompaniment that ebbs and flows far under
our serene plane of existence as they bicker
and squabble in .the far corner over the inconsequential topics that monopolize the fickle
attention of adolescent youth from minute to
This is no day for crusading. To exist, to
feel, to withdraw passively from all thought or
desire of action, is the ultimate well-being of
the moment. Sight, sound, smell and sensation
drift past on the stream of time and are absorbed without selection or response by the unheeding, all-embracing mind. To be is the only
reality, the only possibility, the only pleasure.
What to me on a day like this are" the
midge-like buzzings and gyrations of the Council; the dull ploppings in the academic mental
dough as another long fermented idea bubbles
up and explodes sourly in the spring air; or the
fetid exhalations of undergraduate livestock
wallowing in the subterranean feed-troughs of
the Kaf?
What to me on a day like this are the aimless and never-ending slitherings and twinings
of campus politicians at their Tartarean tasks,
the inane chitterings, chatterings and scratch-
ings of the library-haunting simians, or the futile, sweating activity of our religious, anti-
religious, military and anti-military swarms as
they buzz, rumble and chase each other round,
around and round like blue-bottles caught under a tumbler?
What are they to me? On a day like this,
nothing and less than nothing. In reality, always nothing and less than nothing, not to me
alone, but i nthe eternal scheme of things. But
it is not always a day like this when the vicious
urges of virtue, righteous uplift and human
brotherhood are seen in their true and horrifying colors. It is not always a day like this,
when the petty concerns of right, wrong, life
and death sink into their true proportions and
the ego gets its fair share of attention.
It is only on days like this that the West
can realize what Nirvana means.

While John George Hill is still attempting to fill up an order for Arts
sweaters at about S3, the students at
the University of Alberta have.decided to purchase blazers at five dollars each. All that students have to
do is pay their five, and they will
be supplied with a becoming blazer.
We wonder how many would be sold
here at that price.
The Gateway, U. of Alberta paper,
has started  a custom  of  publishing
a column of news from U.B.C. each
week. They condense the news into
about five hundred words, without
missing anything important — but it
takes us several thousand words.
Elections for Student Council positions are now going on in Canadian
Universities. Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, are among those involved.
Premier Bennett addressed the students of Queen's last week at the
official re-opening of Grant Hall. The
Premier is Rector of Queen's.
Tuesday tha co-eds at the Univer
sity of Manitoba were responsible for
the publication of the Manitoban. The
wiclders of the knitting needle and
powder puff took over the entire
management for one issue. Such an
idea has been spreading ever since
the Gateway invited campus organizations to take over the paper for an
issue. Maybe the custom will come
to U.B.C.
Gilbert and Sullivan seems to be
popular with the Western Universities. U.B.C. has done "Ruddigore,"
Alberta is doing "H.M.S. Pinafore,"
and Manitoba did "Iolanthe."

Anyone chancing to wander into
the east wing of the Dairy Lab. these
days, will almost invariably find
Messrs. Wood end Bowen scurrying
around the lab in a dishevelled condition, or draped loosely over the
radiator, gazing wistfully at complicated apparatus through which grey
vapors writhe and twist, and finally
emerge as a crystal clear liquid. The
visitor must not conclude, however,
that this distill;ng apparatus is being
used for the purpose of distilling illicit liquors.   No indeed.
The Intrepid dairymen are attempting to Isolate from alfalfa a mysterious essential food elmeent known as
"bios." Several times the budding
young scientists have had bios within their grasp, but each time it has
eluded them by a hair's breadth. They
are still working optimistically, however, and have promised to bios
drinks all 'round when they finally
isolate the elusive substance. Think
what the accomplishment will mean
to the textile industry, in these days
when fashion dictates biosed skirts
for women. That's O.K. bios, but
we can't help feeling a little bit
skeptical. In tact it is our unblosed
opinion that thc boya are engaged on
a wild goose chase.
Aggies are looking forward with
fast-beating hearts to Saturday, March
0, 1935. For on that date the Agriculture Club plans to make its annual
field trip to Agassiz. The program
for the day consists essentially of a
stock judging competition and a tour
of Inspection over the Dominion Experimental Farm. Horses, dairy cows,
sheep and swine will all display
themselves reluctantly before the
gaping students, who, with pencils
and score-cards will mill around
awkwardly trying to decide why B
should be placed above A and whether C stands as straight on her pasterns as a good dairy cow should.
The competitor with the highest total score wins the coveted Lady Jane
trophy, won last year by Don Clan-
As an innovation this year the Agriculture Club is hiring e large bus
for the occasion. In this way, all the
students can travel together, and joy
and good fellowship will be uncon-
fined. The system used in previous
years of travelling by several private
cars, is very unsatisfactory from a
social viewpoint.
Mr. G. Cherub Cornish, illustrious
president of tht club, has compiled
statistics showing that 81.87 percent
of the Aggie Undergrad have definitely arranged to make the trip.

Editor,  "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
At a general meeting of the Student's Christian  Movement  held  on
February   28,   the   following   motion
was passed:   "A motion such as the
antl-CO.T.C. tcsolutlon Is felt to be
aside  from  the   truest  and   highest
alms of the S.C.M., as being a very
small part of a much larget   issue.
It contains room for such diversity
of opinion and even  contrary ideas
that the S.C.M. feels that a question
such  as this should be left to the
individual   conscience.    While   withdrawing their further support from
the resolution, they wish to state that
this is no expression of opinions on
the part of individuals in the Students'  Christian Movement who are
either for or against the motion."

Its Increasing prominence as a profession ln future years.
To introduce the' speaker Dean Bollert named Miss Holland as the wom-
in Canada best fitted by temperament
and ability to speak on "Opportunities in the field of Social Science."
This is one field of work in which
there is no unemployment. Indeed
a shortage of skilled workers and the
use of untrained or semi-trained
workers haa handicapped development until now.
Social Service Fascinating
Prospects for rapid advancement
awal those who are willing to equip
themselves for this line of work,"
continued the lecturer. This Is a
fascinating field, varied in its type
of activities which themselves are
cnostantly changing.
Social Service has been defined as
the "Art of helping people out of
trouble." It does not merely entail
the giving of monetary relief but of
assisting in making moral adjustments. The duties of the social worker are general. He must step in
where other tgencles have failed in
the prevention and cure of poverty,
delinquency and mental or physical
Qualifications •
Miss Holland stated that every type
of work Is included. Administrative
ability, nursing experience, recreational group directing, case work and
research each require a special technique and qualifications.
Primarily there are four requirements for social service. First a keen
interest in people. A knowledge of
psychology. Secondly, both physical
and mental health is necessary. Thirdly, a sound education is essential.
Finally, a sense of humor is invaluable.
For women the remuneration is on
the same level as In nursing or teaching. Most workers start at $1000 a
year. In no position do the salaries
amount to more than $7000, even in
the administration line. There is,
however, opportunity for rapid advancement.
In conclusion Miss Holland mentioned that she drew much joy and
satisfaction from'her occupation. She
never experiences a dull moment.
One Is continually meeting new people whose needs draw on every bit
of knowledge one possesses. Finally
It stands for service, a sense which
is being developed more and more in
all business but which is still peculiar to this field
Debate With
It was announced yesterday that
the Parliamentary Forum will continue its series of Intercollegiate Debates by sending a team to University of Washington on March 4. This
debate was meant to have been part
of an extended Pacific Coast tour,
but the remainder of the fixtures
have been postponed till after the
U.B.C. exams.
The team will be composed of Jack
Conway and John Gould. Conway,
who has participated in many intercollegiate debates in the past, is a
senior, majoring in Economics and
History. He lias represented U.B.C.
against Stanford, both in Vancouver
and at Palo Alto; he was a member
of the team which met Bates College
last year; and this year he, together
with John Sumner, upheld U.B.C.
against the Oxford-Cambridge team.
Gould Is a sophomore, Intending to
major in Economics and History. He
has been one of the most outstanding
speakers ln the Forum during the
past two years. This is his first intercollegiate debate.
The subject will be: "Resolved, that
the nations should unite to prevent
International shipment of munitions."
U.B.C. will support the negative.
Pep Meet Will
Be A Mystery
Today, the Ruggers, the Junior
Prom Queen, and perhaps the hoopers share honors at a noon hour pep
meeting. The program remains
shrouded in mystery, but it is certain
that an orchestra will be there, and
also—alas!—that the Ruggers have not
prepared their traditional "Ballyhoo."
After a struggle with the Players'
Club over the stage possession, it was
decided that the set for "Hedda Gabler" must remain untouched during
the time of production. Therefore,
the Artsmen'« Pep Meeting, which
was scheduled for tomorrow, has been
postponed till March 18. The Science
Pep effort will take place in the same
week, on the 22nd. There is a rumor
that militia will patrol the campus
that wepk to control any outbursts
of faculty spirit.
A week from today, a super-super
pep meet is planned. That famed
company, "The Awful Acts," will
finally make their apearance. The
Heinz Band will also see the light
of public favor (?) and the newly
formed Pub-Pep Glee Club will harmonize for a time. The orchestral
music will be provided by Len
Chamberlin ancf his Trianon orchestra.
Due to popular demand
the Library Art Exhibit
will remain open one
more week.

Professor H. N. Thomson Dies
Th University lost one of its most esteemed faculty members
with the death Wednesday of Professor H. N. Thomson of the Department of Metallurgy. His untimely passing has climaxed a long
and brilliant career in the field of metallurgy. Graduating from McGill University ln 1897, with the degree of B.Sc, he took the position of chemist and assayer with the Canadian Smelting Works, Trail,
B.C. From 1902 to 1909, he held various positions with the A.C.M. Co.
of Anaconda. The following year he became superintendent of
the International Smelter, Toledo, Utah, and later, assistant smelter
superintendent and metallurgist, United Verde Copper Company,
Clarkdale, Arizona. In 1919, Professor Thomson was appointed to the
university staff as Professor of Metallurgy, and since that time has
rendered sixteen years of faithful service to this institution.
In the words of President Klinck, "The death of Professor
Thomson has come as a very great shock to his associates. He was a
very able member of the staff and has been extremely valuable in
his department. His position will be hard to fill"
Professor Turnbull of the Metallurgy Department, for many
years an associate of the deceased has expressed his sentiments, saying," I feel very keenly the loss of my old frelnd Prof. Thomson. We
were classmates at McGill University from 1893 to 1897 and have been
associated as follow professors here for sixteen years. He was notable
for his keen analytical mind, common sense and faithful performance of his duty, aa well as devotion to his students to the very
last He was also noted for his encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject and famous for his kindly sense of humor. We shall have to
carry on the work but I do not think that it will be possible to repair
the loss and we shall long miss his friendly personality and able cooperation."

Topping Discusses
Lipman's Book
"It is a good preface but no solution to the contemporary chaotic situation," said Dr. Topping of Walter
Lipmann's much criticized and much
eulogized book, "A Preface to Morals,"
at the regular meeting of the Philosophy Club.
Walter Lipmann, once associated
with the "New Republic,',' the most
intelligent radical paper in the U.S.A.,
and who later became a member of
the Board of Governors at Harvard
University, may be called the first
"brain-truster." In his book, "A
Preface to Morals." Lipman shows
himself a modified humanist and
takes his stand as an agnostic. He
follows Fereno-.i in his analysis of
the seven stages of man, but he leaves
a great gap between the last two
Lipman's analysis of the contemporary situation is based on the rule
of chaos—men have outgrown their
gods—and he recommends the building up of ethics upon laboratory experimentation.
The basic elements of this modern
morality are founded on a form of
stoicism or extremely high philosophy
and Walter Lipmann leaves humanity the option of either this form of
humanism or else modernism.

Pete Monro  Claims
Responsibility For
Bennett's Tendencies
Call out the brass bands,
start the flags waving, get
ready for a war against he Soviet Union — this is the only
way out for the capitalists, according to Pete Monroe, trade
union delegate to the Soviet
Republic, who addressed a
meeting under the auspices of
the Student League in Arts 100
Monroe is not a "mental
prostitute," he does not tell lies
for money, and so you can believe him when he says that
the Soviet is a Paradise—there
is no unemployment—no jails-
no punishment.
Mr. Monroe is responsible for
Premier Bennett's recent
marked pink tendencies. At
Halifax a customs officer deprived the trade delegate of
his pergonal notes and sent
them on to R. B. and if the
Prime Minister didn't go and
steal his stuff. In a radio address Mr. Bennett said, "If we
can't abolish unemployment in
Canada, we'll have to abolish
the system that causes it," and
those were the exact words
contained in Mr. Monroe's
Don't believe all you hear
about Stalin being a dictator.
He isn't. How could he be,
when all the workers would
have to do would be to pop
him off if they didn't like him.
The very fact that the workers
are armed proves that the Soviet has a very broad type of
Democracy—If the workers of
Vancouver were armed to-night
there would be a red flag flying over the courthouse tomorrow.

Varsity Conceded Miller Cup
The historic Miller Cup, emblematic of City supremacy in
English Rugby, will once again grace the Trophy Case in the
Library, according to reports from the Vancouver Rugby Union.
After last Saturday's decisive defeat of Marpole, when the score
was 37-6, Rowing Club and Nanaimo handed in their checks
and Varsity wins the trophy outright.
With this news under their beits,^
Varsity is all set to continue their
winning streak by upsetting the Vancouver Rep team on Saturday. It
will be no walk-over for the students, but it will be a replica of the
All-Black game which, accoring to
all the most rabid fans, was the best
game seen at Brockton Point for
some years.
The Varsity will send in the same
team that has been doing such yeoman work for the sake of the Blue
and Gold. They will be sending In
the same men but If circumstances
permit, they will play In different
positions. The usual line-up is Carey;
Bird, Roberts, Mercer, Leggat, Roxborough, and Robsvm. However, Cap-
toln Roxborough has a tneory that
with a little shifting around, the
strong back-field will become an
even greater threat to the Reps. So
he will change the backs as follows:
Bird (full-back), Roberts and Leggat
(wing-threes), Mercer and Roxborough (centres), Robson (five-eights)
and Carey (scrum-half). Coach Dobbie's opinion is that Roxborough is
essentially a centre three-quarter, and
little Harry Robson is versatile enough
to deputise at tho play-making position. Saturday's game should be interesting from this view-point alone.
T. S. Roxborough — Captain and
play-maker for the team. He has an
uncanny knack of seeing opneihgs
and cutting through them. Because
of this, he is the most valuable man
on the team.
J. Mitchell—Vice-captain and old
man of the team. Mitchell is known
as a good hook and a hustling forward.
D. Carey—Scrum half for Vancouver Rep last y^er, Carey is now playing fullback and making a good job
of it. His ability to kick well with
both feet is especially appreciated by
the other members of the team.
J. Bird—With Carey he is one of
the only two freshmen to make the
first-string tejr.i. Bird has a wonderful pair of hands and is developing a hand-off that is the bane of
his opposite number.
A. Mercer — The name of Mercer
has been connected with Varsity
rugby for years now, and Al is upholding the family name in no mean
manner.    He   has  remarkable  drive.
S. Leggat—One of the fastest men
on the team and also thc hardest to
stop. He takes his rugby seriously
and has shown decided improvement
this season.
H. Robson—He represented Victoria
for three years and is a valuable addition to the Blue and Gold squad.
His continual chatter to the forwards
and the difficulty the opposition have
in stopping him make him one of
the most colorful players on the team.
J. Roberts—One of the Canadian
ruggers who made good for the English ruggers. Ho has made many
spectacular runs and is one of the
high scorers on the t-oam.
J. Harrison—He never does anything
outstanding, but if you want to know
where the ball is, look for Harrison,
he will be there.   He has played for

Wednesday the cinder stars get formally under way tor the spring season with the Inter-Faculty meet.
The running on this should be closer
than It has been for many yean, for
no faculty has all the strength. Arts
will probably be on top ln the end,
but Science and Aggie will be close on
their heels.
The exceptionally good weather
has made training cosy and if it continues so mild tho track will be the

than tho usual number of records will
be broken.
Percy Williams has had his men

However, tho Senior Manager, Cec

R. Cross — One of the offensive

Varsity's game with Vikings Saturday will come as a distinct breather
between the hectic cup matches into
which the Thunderbirds have plunged
head and foot this spring. Tomorrow's
encounter Is billed as a regular league
fixture. The kick-off Is timed for
i;30 p.m., and Mr. Marshall has been
chosen as referee.
Although three games behind most
of the other teams hte Blue and Gold
footballers stand a good chance of
finishing on top of the heap, but in
order to do that they must win their
remaining league matches. This is
what they are going to do according
to Charlie Hitchens,  club  coach.
Hitchens, however, is the last man
to under-rate thc Norse crew, for he
has personally witnessed their recent
successes, and predicts a close and
interesting tussle for Saturday.
He has not announced the line-up
for the game but will probably choose
the eleven from the following: Stan
Greenwood, Gerry Sutherland, Dan
Quayle, Bish Thurber, Bill Wolfe,
Russ Stewart, Paul Kozoolin, Wingett,
Irish, Laurie Todd, Otie Munday,
Archie MacDougall, and Dave Todd.

Wright Holds Mayers Scoreless
Paced by Dick Wright, Varsity came through Wednesday
night against Adanacs to tie the series up again at two games
apiece. In a fast and furious second period, that had the 1200
fans, composed mostly of students, in a constant uproar, the
Blue and Golds outraced the Yellowshirts, to win by a 28-19
score. The game was played at break-neck speed all the way,
though the usual combination plays of Varsity were conspicuous by their absence. Both teams relied on individual rushes
and packed defenses.   Both were off in their shooting.
Science '38 Victorious
In Basketball Tilt
In a lowscoring, close-checking basketball game, Science '38 triumphed
over their fellow Sciencemen from the
class of '36 by a 12-7 score.
This battle, which went 17 minutes
before a point was registered, produced some of the finest Rugby and
Soccer seen In the series so far!
Lougheed of Science '38 was the
only one to score before the half,
making the count 2-0 at the breather.
Coach Jack Ross explained to his
Science '38 buddies that the way to
win Basketball games was to put the
ball through the hoop, and as a result of this strategy, Science '38 went
on a scoring spree, through baskets
by Bacon, Falrburn, and Vine. Science '36's only reply was a foul shot
by Richardson. With score 10-1
against them, Science '36 started a
rally which ended when Lafon sank
another from close-in, making the
final score  12-7.
Lafon, Wood, and Fnirbuirn starred
for the class of '38, while McDonald
and Walker turned in nice games for
'3(5. Referee "Bunny" Lowe also gave
a good account of himself—he had to!
TThere will be a track club practice
today and Monday.
By far the best player on the floor
was Dick Wright, who was all over
the court, and was the spark-plug of
the Student attack. He performed a
great job of holding Wally Mayers,
while at the same time garnering 5
points for himself. Wally got only
3 points, and these were scored before
Dick came on mid-way in the first
half, replacing Mansfield. Art Willoughby also played a nice game for
Varsity. Young Chuck Holmes of the
Adanacs was the standout for his
team. "Hunk" Henderson had an off

The game opened slowly, Edmonds
bringing In a run for the scribes.
When the tin gods came to bat they
distinguished themselves by going
out—three In a row. But, of course,
tho outstanding participant was Paul
Kozoolin, the ump.
The second inning was where the
fireworks started. Pub brought in
three, Idyll, DePoe, and Logan during
their duty by the paper. Council got
all their runs in this stanza. They
ran wild before a slightly bewildered
pub team who allowed Sumner, Bolton, Mather, and Malkin to come in.
After this the writers tightened up
a little.
In the first half of thc third John
Logan made a hero of himself with
a home run, the only one of the day
He whanged a beauty out to centre

the ball from going straight home to
the pub office was the North wind

and the rest it the game resulted
in a scoreless two and half innings.

Final Game Of
Hoop Series
U.B.C. Basketeers To Play At
Queens Park
The final winner of the Inter-City
League playoffs has, to be decided tonight in the Royal qty. Both Varsity
and Adanacs have won two games so
far and as a result tonight will see
one team crowned monarch of the
lower mainland, and the other eliminated from the running until next year.
Varsity will go into this game at
a really great disadvantage according
to the dopesters, inasmuch as it is
to be played on the huge Arena floor
in New Westminster. This floor is
some five yards wider and longer
than their honv floor, the baskets
are a long distance from the walls,
and the surroundings are essentially
suitable to the Adanac style of play.
Although Varsity seemed hopelessly lost in the first half of Monday's
game they managed to hold the score
even in the second canto. If this can
be taken as signifying anything, the
Thunderbirds may have their "Arena
legs" already. In that case they
should pull out a win.
Arts '37 vs. Sc '36 Soccer must be
played Wednesday, March 6, or both
teams will default. Athletic reps,
please be sure your team is on the
field at 12:10 on that day.
Science '35 Wins From
Science '38 In Soccer
Wednesday noon Sc. '35 showed
their wares in a snappy soccer tussle
with Sc. '38. taking the second year
team by 2-0. Thc first half proved
fairly even, but shortly after the interval the Senior Sciencemen started
a well-formed attack which culminated in a pretty goal by Ken Yip.
Shortly before full time Brookes, the
classy centre-forward, booted the ball
past Irish, to end the scoring.
Next Monday Arts '35 plays Aggies.
Next Wednesday Arts '27 plays Sc.
to All
Greek Letler
the first period when he sank only
2 of 8 free shots.
Whether Varsity can cop the fifth
and deciding game tonight at Queen's
'Park arena is pretty much of a question. It is a known fact that the
large Royal City gym is favorable to
the Adanacs; Varsity seems to have
difficulty, as most other outside
teams do, of locating the baskets on
the large floor. However, judging on
past performances, Varsity should
come through to win the series.
Wright opened the scoring for Adanacs with one of his favorite hook
<S> shots from the side. At the start of
the game Varsity was very off-color
in its shooting, missing at least half
a dozen in tho initial ten minutes.
Mayes added a dandy from near the
foul line, Jimmy Bardsley at last
located the hoop to score for Varsity
and Henderson added a foul shot.
Art Willoughby then got -> nice back
handed one, but the 5-4 lead was
soon erased when "Hooker" Wright
got another from the side. Matthison
followed with two more right after
Then Jimmy Bardsley dribbled the
length of the floor for a basket that
had the crowd on their feet. With
Adanacs leading 10-8, McEwan went
off on personals, after being on the
floor hardly ten minutes. The half
ended 11 all. Varsity missed a lot
in the first canto, and with any lucft
would have had a considerable lead.
The second half was all Varsity's
though their combination plays weren't clicking as they usually do. Henderson got one at last in the first
minute, and Di;k Wright swished one
of his favorite long shots in. With
ten minutes gone Adanacs called
time out. They were missing many
that also should have been sure baskets.
At the tip-off, Art Willoughby got
a beauty under the basket on a pass
from Henderson. He added another
a minute later going around Fraser
to score. Die* Wright got another
long one in, but "Hooker" Wright
added a sitter for Adanacs to cut
down Varsity's lead. The score stood
at 23-16. "Hooker" then went out on
his fourth foul. A minute later Matthison put in p foul shot to the tune
of loud boos from the crowd. Bardsley went off on personals.
A minute and a quarter to play,
with Adanacs striving desperately to
pull the game out of the fire, "Joe"
Pringle scored to put it on ice, and
Swan added another to rub it in as
the whistle blew, ending the game
28-19 in favor of the Students.
The Senior B's were completely
out-classed in a preliminary with Mt.
Pleasant Merchants.
The teams:
Varsity—Swan 2, Bardsley 2, Wright
5, Ross, Willoughby 6, Henderson 5,
Mansfield, Pringle 3, Osborne.
Adanacs — Mayers 3, McEwan,
Holmes 2, Matthison 6, Wright 7, Fraser 1, Bickerton, Douglas, MacDonald,
