Soward Analyzes
Nazi Rise To Power
Hitler Policy Scored
City Groups
Ably Present
Two Dramas
Theatre-goers were offered two
amateur productions last week end.
"Olympia" at the Little Theatre and
"If Winter Comes" at the Avenue.
The latter was the first effort of the
new Repertory Players.
The plays, one a romantic comedy of cynical flavor, the other a
somewhat unconvincing tragedy,
were notable chiefly for some individual acting of a high order.
"Olympia" by Ferenc Molnar tran
spired In a fashionable Austrian wat
ering place the summer  before  the estry representation of the Virgin and
Child   to  cover   a   door   in   the  set
that shouldn't have been there.
Dr D. C. B. Duff has been turning
his hand to painting a medieval sign
board for the bake-shop in "The Pi-
Professor F. H. Soward analyzed the facts that made the
Nazi rise to power possible iri Germany before the Vancouver
Institute in the auditorium on Saturday night.
"Undoubtedly Hitler is developing a militaristic attitude
in Germany," he declared.
Prof. Soward went on to say that German schools gave
two hours weekly to the so-called "war games" which are merely  lessons on military  tactics.    TheQ	
Storm Troops, the terror of German
life, parade with fire-arms. Although
Hitler declared himself nothing if not
a pacifist, at the present time pacifists
are in prison.
Hitler says, "We are to prepare today, for wresting back German freedom tomorrow." In her present state,
Prof. Soffifltd considered, Germany is
unable to go to war with anyone!
It would be about five years before
the peace of neighboring Europe would
be threatened. The Nazi initial principles are military preparation and
hope of expansion eastward.
Boy Scouts Wiped Out
Hitler's platform has been a gospel
of force, not of peaceful achievement.
It has unified European opinion against German equality of armaments.
Even the the London Times claims
that the reign of Hitler is a diluted
St. Bartholomew's Eve. All international organization, have been confiscated; German Masons, Rotarians and
Boy Scouts no longer exist. The youth
of the country is being trained to believe in the glory of war.
One of the characteristics of the Nazi regime is a fanatical insistence on
racial purity. A desire for a purely
Arian race obsesses Hitler. The Nazi
paper in Berlin calls all Jews swindlers, and claims that Jewish propo-
ganda is responsible for the out-come
of the World War and finally calls
Jews and Marxism the greatest enemies of Germany. Jews are being persecuted by all classes and being excluded from many walks of life. Yet
of the forty Nobel Prize winners In
Germany, twelve are of Jewish extraction.
Force, Hate and Terror
This same policy of hate and terror, ordered by Hitler and executed
by the barbarous Storm Troops, has
created great changes in a short time.
It has substituted the soldier type
for the German citizen. Systematic
beatings of both men and women have
extracted any promise from radicals
that the Nazi government desires.
There is, said Prof. Soward, an average of 20,000 men in concentration
camps, put there without legal warrant, drilled and underfed, because
they do not agree with Hitler.
Foreign press agents, in danger of
their lives for exporting information,
have reported these facts and yet the
German electors returned Hitler with
a large majority last Sunday. Prof.
Soward explained how Hitler's conquest has been one of propaganda and
arousing of mass emotion so that the
Germans believe their country to have
been humiliated by outside nations
and betrayed by Jews and Communists. Then Hitler came, as other dictators have come, to a desperate country.
In concluding his address, the
speaker expressed the hope that Hitler the propogandist and orator, would
acquire the art of true statesmanship and become more conservative.
Players Ponder
Ways and Means
If the Christmas plays are not good
this year, it will not be because the
Players' Club has not worked. In
two directions at.least it is probable
that so much effort has never before been expended. This is in the
training of understudies and the building of scenery.
Directors in the past have seldom
had time enough to give any attention at all to the understudies, but
this year they have assigned the task
ta the assitant student directors, and
th. understudies are being rehearsed in both the lines and the mechanics of their parts.
The assistant directors are also
proving useful in taking charge of
rehearsals of the regular casts, particularly at noon, when it is difficult
for some of the directors to be present. In this way there have probably been more rehearsals than usual.
The stage crew continue to work
like slaves, but it Is not true that
they are being kept at it with whips—
the whips are for "El Cristo." The
whips were braided out of rope, and
it took a whole afternoon to make
them. This was done by the property
committee for "El Cristo."
That same afternoon Bill Sargent,
assitant director for the play, turned mural painter and evolved a tap-

War, and concerned the Austrian nobility and militia. The play satisfied
the demands of conventionl comedy
of this type—wit, color, romance-
but emphasized the individuality of
the author with satire and a cynical
twist. This last was evidenced in the
abrupt and deliberate separation ot.
the enamoured Princess Olympia and
Captain Kovacs. The title of the play
itself has an ironic besides a literal
It is interesting to note the similarity between Molnar (who is central European) and the English Noel
Coward. The same brittle humor, the
same freedom is common to both, as
is the sentimentality dlsguished with
a depreciatory remark ("now don't be
poetic!") but nevertheless felt.

"If Winter Comes" contained a tragic element rather than the ironic
element seen in "Olympia," but lacked force probably because it lacked
complete unity, which is always the
danger of adaptation.
If Winter comes can Spring be far
behind? Apparently quite a way, for
we see six scenes in which the woes
of Mark Sabre decidedly get the better of him before the closing line

those six scenes we have the promise of a poetic intensity (the scene
of Mark Sabre and Lady Tybar)

An Ancient Prejudice
Dean Max McConn of Lehigh University, at the conference of the Education Records Bureau of the United States recently urged a compromise plan between the old system of
gradings and the no-test plan vigorously upheld "by 20 schools and 250
colleges of a progressive nature in
the United States, reports the Washington Daily.
Always quid, to respond, the University of Washington faculty recently voted down a program for increasing the importance of final
Dr. McConn suggests, a quantity of
short tests throughout the term, but
always "informal, casual and skeptical." The results of the tests would
be entered on a cumulative record
of the student, but would be inter-
peted as only a small part of the student's entire record.
Said Dr. McConn: "The fact is that
we humans, old and young, enjoy
tests provided we are not going to
be hung if we do badly. Please recall the vogue of 'Ask Me Another'
books. And every crossword puzzle
is a test. So is every game of bridge
or chess or billiards or golf—a competitive test of some kind of ability
or achievement and a test yielding
comparable results. The trouble is
we educators have professionalized
this sport of being tested. What we
need to do is give it amateur status
and keep it strictly amateur."
Jittery Journalists
The Oregon Journal's editorial
page carried the inside story of a
joke on the world at large. It's in
connection with the Russian cinema,
"Ten Days That Shook the World,"
and its banning by Salem authorities
at the high school there.
Three years ago the Oregon Daily
was short of copy. Something had to
be done, and the above mentioned
film was on exhibition in the city
that day. The staff of that worthy
journal, who were also journalistic
students, organized some heckling.
They sat in a body at the back of
the theatre and   cheered   in   unison
whenever the handsome physiognomy
of Lenin-was flashed on the screen.
To add a note of completion, the editor of the Emerald, one of the party,
wrote a paen of praise editorially, to
the "embryo communists of the
The result was all that thc most
sanguinary editor could have expected. And the crowning bliss for an
editor Was administered. His edition
was forbidden in the mails, and destroyed.
The public received whisperings
and finally shouts of what had happened. And the usual condemnatory
and congratulatory editorials in other
journals began to flow in. It ended
up as all journalistic fracases do, in
a wordy oratorio about the cherished
freedom of the press.
We just wanted to show you how
it's done.

rung up after 7 o'clock It upsets her

"Resolved that thc United States is
largely to blame for the present
world crisis," to win their case and
obtain the unanimous vote of the
judges, Philip Malkin, Dugald Don-
aghy and Rowe Holland, in the Hotel
Vancouver  Friday  evening.
The United States has put the peace
of the world in jeopardy in four
main ways, contended Robert Grantier, opening speaker for Stanford
discussing the political side of his
country's guilt in leading up to the
present crisis.
"The U, S. has changed her national symbol from the eagle to the ostrich in her dealings with European
"She can no longer go her blithe
independent way as she did when a
small straggling nation on the Atlantic seaboard and her internal policies did not affect the wolrd."
Unjust To Germany
Labelling the "injustices of the
Treaty of Versailles" as the cornerstone of the present crisis, Grantier
saw in his country's loss of a chance
to remedy them from her position of
authority a prime proof of guilt.
Germany was treated more like a
convict nation than one about to be
the chief figure in a "fair peace."
Woodrow Wilson saw that no such
peace could come from Versailles,
and sacrificed almost all of his "fourteen points" in order to get a League
of Nations which could remedy its
But he didn't reckon with the U.S.
His country, while willing to accept
the profits was not willing to shoulder
the responsibilities, and thus her first
great opportunity for avoiding the
present crisis was lost.
Hotbed of Dissension
In the U.S. policy of isolation lies
the second great proof of her blame.
By refusing to join the League at
its inception, when the nations could
be offered security without the prewar series of ententes and alliances,
formation of which inevitably leads
to war, the United States destroyed
its effectiveness and gave power alliances a fresh start, with the result
that Euope today is a hotbed of dissension.
Again, the U. S. held the key position in the problem ot world disarmament, but in place of aiding has
contributed to a condition of more
arms and a more imminent war.
America was not willing to forego
her isolation to the extent of setting
up a peace guarantee or contributing
to an international league.
But security came first with France
leading in her demands for it, with
the result that the disarmament project has been "universally futile" for
the p_st fifteen years.
Economic Boycott
Lastly, the U. S. has checkmated
one of the few sure weapons of the
League, that of economic boycott, as
another result of her far-reaching
policy of isolation.
In the recent Manchukuo crisis
American refusal to be governed by
economic boycott resulted in the failure of what amounted to a test case.
"Dollar diplomacy" has characterized American conduct throughout.
Willing to accept all profits coming
from her position of creditor nation
to the world, she has nevertheless refuted all responsibility attached to
Condemning his native land still
further from an economic standpoint,
Rollin Woodbury, second speaker for
the affirmative, saw in U. S. high
tariff legislation and handling of war
debts a "dual strangulation of world
trade and progress."
Just at the time when United
States was "expanding to the nth degree" and her need for world markets was nt its greatest, the "went
on the most ludicrous tariff-raising
other nations closed down their markets to the U. S. and international
trade and commerce came to a practical standstill.
World Tariff Lead
The U. S. led the world into this
tariff legislation just at the time.
when the other countries were prepared to lower tariff walls, and this,
coupled with the fact that her colossal size makes her one of the most
important commercial nations, is further proof of her responsibility for
present conditions.
In the matter of war debts, Woodbury pointed out that being the ul-
timated creditor nation, the U. S. led
the way to destruction when she demanded payment in full. Debts can
only' be paid in two ways, either in
gold, or in goods and services.
The "havoc-wreaking transfer" of
such great amounts would prohibit
payment by the first method, even
granting that enough gold were
available, and the record-breaking
tariff walls of American legislators
made payment completely impossible
by blocking out the second possibility
of trade.   ' .
Aggravating the condition still further, the United State's, "renouncing
blissfully enlightened revision" of
war debts, lent sixteen times the amounts paid. "World peace and security cannot be secured without war
debt revision," Woodbury declared.
U.B.C. Blames France
Taking the stand that the United
States has nothing to compare with
the criminality of France in matters
of war debts, tariffs, and pe.ee legislation, the University of B. C. team,
Jack Conway and Ernest Brown, condemned the latter nation as being
more to blame for tho present crisis
in world affairs than the U. S.
Opening the negative for U. B. C.
Conway lauded the United States as
being "the only nation in the world
which has done anything towards
world disarmament," and credited an
American, Secretary of State Stim-
son, with giving the first hint to the
world for an economic boycott on
Versailles gave no territorial acquisitions to U. S.
Promise of war debt returns waa
her one substantial gain.
France, cutting her debt to tho
United States four-fifths by means
of franc inflation, was nevertheless
quick to occupy the Ruhr valley when
in 1922 Germany defaulted, thereby
placing Germany in a position of economic servitude.
"France has done more than any
othen single nation to maintain her
position as economic dictator of the
world in an effort to subjugate Germany as far as possible."
The Moral Effect
Again, by delaying acceptance of
the Hoover moratorium, France managed to destroy its morai effect on
the other nations whose burden she
has no wish to _ee relieved.
The U. S. could best benefit Europe by remaining out of the League
as in this way she can avoid taking
sides and can interpose her judgment
impartially whenever necessary, tho
local university contended.

three groups of nations retarding stability in the world, representing communism, nationalism, and imperialism, is concerned, United States is

Vanity's bid to avenge itself for
tho defeat handed by tho Orads last
Thanksgiving Day proved successful
on Saturday when they blanked the
JSx-Studenta 15-0 in the feature English Rugby match at Brockton Point.
In their last meeting the Grads won
an 8-0 victory. But on Saturday with
a much improved serum and a reorganized three-quarter line Varsity
-ww unbeatable. The Varsity thretes
adapted a new scheme of lining out
so that each man could receive the
ball going at top speed. This resulted in the fact that the ball often went
out to the wing and that the game
waa a fast one, making it a very
pleasant for spectators to watch.
In the first half play see-sawed for
a while, neither side gaining much
ground. Then Ken Mercer making
a way through his opponents, passed
out to Stewart on the wing, who
went over for a try. None of the
tries which were scored were converted. During this term the Grads
were only once a menace. On this
occasion Phil Barrett dummied his
way through the Vanity men for
thirty yards. His side failed to support him so his effort failed. During
a Varsity attack a penalty kick was
given against the Orads for offside
and Mitchell put the ball over the
bar for Varsity's second score. At
the end of the first half the score
stood 6-0.
During the second half Varsity,
brightening up, scored more freely.
Leggat, after making a fine run,
passed to Pugh who carried the ball
tho line. Then Dalton ran some
twenty-five yards down the sideline
and continued to run behind the
touchline to place the ball between
tho posts. Thje last try was scored
by Leggat who fought his way to the
line in great style.
The Grad scrum had a slight advantage in scrimmages but failed to
hold the Varsity men in the lineups.
The three-quarter line played well
throughout the game in marked contrast to the raggedness of the Grad
threes. Brand, Varsity full-back,
played a fine game, breaking up Grad
attacks with his sure catching and
good kicking.
Best players for Varsity were: Leggat, Pearson, Brand, Pyle and McGuire.

Murray and Owyther were the outstanding playen.

Varsity second division English
Rugby team lost a hard fought game
on Saturday to Marpole by the score
of 8-0
During the first five minutes of
play when all the scoring was done
Varsity had only 10 men on the field.
The opening score came from a beautiful three-quarter run by the Marpole backfield men, the wing three
carrying the ball over. A little later
Marpole was awarded a free kick
against the students which they took
advantage of by taking a place kick
which cleared the bar nicely.

advantage. Heron, track star, who
played his first game of English rugby this year on Saturday, made some
long runs through the opposing team,
which proved ineffective due to lack
of support by the other members of
the backfield.
Jones of the Marpole fifteen, broke
through the student line repeatedly
on one-men dribbling attacks which
were only halted at the line. On one
of these after a series of five yard
scrums, Captain Ellis of the University team, relieved by a long kick.
Jones was the outstanding player
for Marpole and it was due to his
excellent work that they won. Ellis
played a nice game for the students
but unfortunately he was hurt and
could not play as well as he usually
The team line-up was as follows:
Ellis, Amstrong, Heron, Macdonald,
Sanderson, Arbuckle, Stead, Wilson,
Johnson, Roberts, Wood, Black, Hurley, Rennie, McCullem.
Right now lanky Bill Vrooman has enough wrinkles in his
forehead to screw on his hat.
The outcome, believe it or not, of the English Rugby-Soccer
game at noon today depends solely on William, the ambling Aggie.
"How come?" you are asking. "Vrooman isn't even taking part
in the game. What's the score?
It's a long, sad story, and it dates 'way back to last September.
It seems that the' Sailor City Canadian football league wanted
to play their games under the lights at Con Jones Park. And it also
seems that, on the day of the first game.the Jones brothers found,* to
their horror and amazement, that they had no goal-posts.
Now that was bad, admittedly. One Just can't play Canadian
football without goal-posts. The way Varsity's Senior City team plays,
it doesn't make much difference, but nevertheless goal-posts lend a
certain "footballlsh" color to the game, which attracts the paying
customers no end.
So brothers Jones got on the phone and in practically no time
at all induced Farmer Vrooman to bring along his goal-posts with his
shoulder-pads and other paraphernalia so necessary to the well-being
of all sane football players.
As stated, that was last September.
Since then, Willie has been assailed by presidents, secretaries, accountants, managers, coaches, team-mates and ordinary students, all
with the same cry, "We want goal-posts!"
Today, with the big battle just a few hours off, one has made
its appearance at the west end of field. At the other end two decidedly doggy-looky sticks have been stuck in the ground, reducing the
possibility of missing a field goal to a positive minimum.
Where is the other goal-post. Who killed Chang Suey?
These and other puzzling problems will be solved in an early
issue of the Ubyssey. Watch for lt!

In the second half the Vacs pounded
hard and crossed the student's line
twice and converted once, while the
Blue and Gold kicked once to the
deadline to make the final score 17-4.
Varsity Tackles Well
Thc Clubbers did most of their
damage around the ends and in returning punts, taking full advantage
of the absence of U.B.C.'s star ends
Bourne and Poole; and only good
tackling by Mclntyre, Owen and one
or two others kept the score from
being even greater. If there was any
advantage in punting it would be on
Varsity's side although the Vacs had
a decided advantage over the weakened U.B.C. line.
The Point Grey lads started the
game with a surprising punch and
vigor, making a first down in two
plays and another five yards on a
forward pass before they were forced
to kick. The Vacs then turned on
the heat, but several deadly tackles
by Milt Owen were effective and
play ranged between the two 20-yard

Downey scored his first touchdown
in Big Four company early in the

gave the Clubbers a 6-3 lead which

lead to 6-4, but the weakened Varsity lineup gradually crumbled before the powerful onslaught of their
stronger opponents, and had their
line crossed twice in the final period.
Although the Clubbers pressed consistently in the third period, good
U.B.C. punting and tackling, and a
V.A.C. fumble averted a score.
In the last counter, however, the
city lads recovered a U.B.C. fumble
on the five yard line to score an unconverted touch, and commercialized
on an intercepted forward pass in
the dying moments to punch across
another  score  which  was converted
Varsity and U B.C., first and second
teams respectively of the Men's Grass
Hockey Club, were both badly beaten
in their matches at Connaught Park
on Saturday.
Varsity, playing short - handed
against the Cricketers, could not cope
with their opponent's smooth passing I
attack, losing   2-7.    Barr   and   Ono
scored for Varsity.
In the other match, U. B. C, also
short-handed,  collapsed   against   the
Vancouver Grasp Hockey Club, being
snowed under 15-1.   Grey scored thej
lone tally for the losers.
Next Saturday U.B.C. plays the
East India Hockey Club, in a replay
of the first round of the O. B. Allan
Cup. U.B.C was defeated 2-1 several
weeks ago. but were later awarded
a draw on the grounds of a disputed

Varsity Junior Soccerites, playing
at home, came out on the long end
of a 3-2 score in a fast open game
with Marpole Athletic last Saturday.
Play was even in the first stanza,
both teams missing chances. Godard
opened the scoring with five minutes
left to play in the first half.
Shortly after the cross-over Irish
gave Varsity a further lead when he
converted a cross from Bardwell.
Marpole then came back strongly and
scored two goals in quick succession.
Play speeded up still more, both
teams striving hard to obtain the
winning tally. This Irish succeeded
in doing about ten minutes from full
For Varsity, Irish on the right wing
and Atwater at inside right, were the
best forwards, "while Thurber starred
at centre-half.
The team: Orme; Moodie, Darwin;
Chester, Thurber, Denne Bardwell,
Godard, Lloye, Atwater, Irish.
U. B. C. Intermediate A
Basketball Team Wins
34-26 From S. Burnaby
Extending their winning streak,
Varsity G.V.A.A. Intermediate A Bas-
ketballers gained their third straight
victory by defeating South Burnaby
34-26 at King Edward Gym., Thursday night. The team has won all its
games so far and should prove a
strong contender for the league
In the first half the students found
it difficult to adapt their play to the
strange gymnasium with its restricted
floor space and as a result did not
do their best. Nevertheless, they finished the period ahead 14-13. After
the intermission the team functioned
much better and finished the match
with a decisive eight point lead.
For Varsity, Morrison, Thurbur and
Idyll Jr. were high scorers with practically the whole team contributing
to the total.
The team: McKee (4), Thurbur (8),
Idyll (7), Morrison (9), Pallas (2),
Machin  (4), Salisbury.   Total-34.

Enthusiastic Response
Following our plea for a name
for the University athletic teams
we have developed sore arms
opening letters. More than two
(2) letters have been received.
Here is one of the three.
Sports Editor,
Dear Sir:
I saw in your "Ubyssey" that
you are looking for a name, for
the University teams. I suggest you call them Ae "U.B.C.
Cyclones" which I think ail your
sport teams represent.
Yours truly,
Stanley W. Seed.
Thanks very much Mr. Seed.
Blue and Gold Soccermen took on
the strong St. Andrews aggregation
of the Pacific Coast League in an
exhibition game at Renfrew Park on
Saturday and shared the 1-1 verdict.
Play was interesting at all times.
The saints started out overconfi-
dently, but settled down to real work
when thjy saw that the Collegians
meant business. They adapted themselves better to the slippery field,
which spoiled many promising play
on both sides, and on the whole
played a more systematic brand of
football than th.ir more youthful opponents. The latter, however, were
on their toes throughout, checking
effectively. •
Varsity Fordwards Good
Varsity forwards combined well at
the outset and tested the opposing
goalie before the game was many
minutes old. Ten minutes from the
opening whistle a penalty against
hands was awarded the Students and
Captain Kozoolin made no mistake
with the resulting kick.
Play was slightly ln favour ot Varsity at this stage and Smith narrowly
missed putting his side further ahead
The Saints, not to be outdone, forced
a number of corners at the other
end, but these were successfully
cleared by the defense, and the half
ended with Varsity a goal to the
St. Andrews Press In Second Half
Both teams made substitutions
when the game was resumed. After
a few minutes the Saints began to
take the command and Varsity gradually adopted defensive tactics. At
times, however, they broke away in
formation and goalie Strong of St.
Andrews had to employ all his skill
to avert a possible tally.
In spite of the fact that Varsity
were mostly confined in their own
half in this period they actually took
more shots on their opponents' goal,
McDougal and Kozoolin being particularly unlucky not to score, their respective shots hitting the upright and
the crossbar from close range. The
Saints, too, were unfortunate on one
particular occasion, a tremendously
long drive off the foot of their left
back hitting the crossbar and bounding back into play.
Kerr Scores for Saints
With but threo mlntues tp go the
Saints were finally rewarded for
'their concetrated efforts when Kerr
banged a volley-pass from Alcock
that Greenwood had no possible
chance of saving. This was one of
the Infrequent direct shots that the
Scots had on the Varsity goal, in
this period, for all their attacks were
broken up by the splendid work of
McGill and Costain, especially thc
former, who was easily the most outstanding player on the field.
The Varsity Badminton team was
again the loser In the match played
on Wednesday, Nov. 15, against the
first B. C. Regiment team. The match
was played in thc home gymnasium
and the final score was 10-6.
The team consisted of: Misses M.
Palmer, H. Palmer, M. Lock and L.
Boyd. Messrs. P. McTaggart Cowan,
R. Allen, G. Samls and E. Selder.

The Senior A team asserted their
superiority in G.V.A.A. basketball circles when they beat the McKenzie-
Fraser outfit from New Westminster
on both Friday and Saturday of last
In the first game at the Westminster Y, the boys met a little opposition. The cigar store boys were fast
and they were checking closely. Varsity on the other hand were slightly
ragged in their checking and shooting. The game was very close from
start to finish and though the McKenzie-Fraser squad were ahead many
times during the game the students
finally managed to squeeze out a 25-21
Holmes Stars
Chuck Holmes, a small but very fast
forward on the Westminster team
showed lots of people how basketball
should be played. Bob Osborne playing his usual smart game clinched the
victory for the Blue and Oold with a
couple of baskets in the closing few
minutes of play.
Saturday Game
The game on Saturday night at the
U.B.C. gymn was an exhibition of first
class ball by the Varsity outfit. They
played about the finest game this
year, and there was never any doubt
as to which team was the better. The
final whistle found the students ahead
"Olsen" Opens Scoring
The local boys started to work the
ball around in the approved style the
moment the game began. Bardsley was
playing furiously and made himself
notable by getting his arms or legs
in the way of many of the visitors'
lightening passes. One of these intercepts he passed to Nicholson who slipped a neat shot into the hoop to open
the scoring. The speed of the opposing
team stood them in good stead for a
while, and about halfway through the
period the score was 8-8. Then Varsity
opened up to put the half time score
17-8 in their favor.
The second half was completely lopsided and Fraser's squad were held
scoreless until the last few minutes of
the game. The score for the Blue and
Gold in the meantime was steadily
mounting as the boys turned in some
first class basketball.
Plays Work Well
Every man on the Varsity team
played splendidly and they worked
several plays to good advantage. Nicholson and Osborne divided the scoring honors in the two games. Nicholson had 9 points in the first game, and
Osborne had 8. This situation was reversed in the second game, thouugh
Nicholson's scoring average was considerably better.

Soccermen   Seek
Recognition As
Major Sport Club
A formal application for thej reconsideration of Soccer as a Major
Sport on the U.B.C. Campus was accepted by the Men's Athletic body
The entire letter will be published
in one of the first issues of the Ubyssey next term, and about two weeks
from that date a general meeting of
Men's Athletics will pass judgment
on the Soccer Club's petition.
Meanwhile a few facts will be presented below for the Students' edification over which they will have a
chance to ponder.
Nearly 10 years ago Soccer relinquished its major standing in favor
of Canadian Rugby, for the former's
teams were not coming up to expectations. Since then the teams have
improved greatly; Varsity now fields
two strong teams—one in the 1st Division of the V. and D. League, and
the other in Junior Alliance. Material is coming up from the High
Schools, and from the Interclass Soccer League operated by the Varsity
Soccer Club on the campus which involves the participation of about 120
men, exclusive of the personnel of
the above-mentioned two teams.
Th Senior'team reached the finals
of the Mainland Cup last season, losing only by a 4-3 score to the formidable Chinese Students, and thus establishing itself as one of the best
teams in Vancouver soccer circles.
This year the team is stronger than
ever. Only recently they defeated
the same Chinese Students by a 3-0
score and drew with the highly-tooted St. Andrews of the Pacific Coast
The huge attendances at its games
testify to the popularity the Varsity
team enjoys down town. In fact, th°
League executive consider it the best
drawing card in the City. Varsity
followers on the Campus fool that thc
team would receive still greater support if it were promoted from its
pres-nt sub-major to major status.

Shuttlers Beaten Once
Saturday night the Senior "B" hoopers dropped their third straight game.
This time it was to Spencers and the
score was 33-1 when the final whistle
blew. Spencers proved to be a much
faster and heavier team than Varsity,
and they dominated the play throughout the game. The Blue and Oold
ball-handling was poor and they
couldn't seem to see the man in the
corner, thereby throwing away many
chances of scoring.
Patmore opened for Varsity with a
basket from a rebound. Spencers
worked a nice play from the tip-off,
and then made nine more points to
take the lead at 11-2. Idyll and Sutton scored for Varsity and Spencers
scored another 9 points to end the half
at 20-6.
Spencers opened scoring in the second half. Then Varsity scored six
points in a row on two baskets by
Spece and one by Sutton. Then Spencers scored seven points before Varsity
scored again. Ross of Spencers and
Sutton of Varsity were banished on
four fouls. The game ended shortly
after this with score at 33-16 for Spencers.
Craig with 11 points and Annon with
13 were best for Spencers, while
Patmore was high for Varaity.

Stamp enthusiasts of the University wiU do we*i to make a journey
over to the registrar's office if they
have not already done so and take
a look at the University stamp collection. Your explorer, who is not
a stamp collector, found the stamps
and their histories intensely interesting.
The coUection is devoted exclusively to Canadian and early British
North American colonial stamps.
There are also a few Newfoundland
Ottawa Helps
The University is on the Postmaster
General's mailing list and receives
from him' an advance notice .of all
the new stamps issued at Ottawa.
They have also sent an official list
of all stamps ever issued and another
list of stamps not in current use but
which can still be obtained from Ottawa at face value by special request.
Any stamp collector can benefit by
this list and many University enthusiasts have already made use of it.
The University collection was begun four years ago. The work is
carried on under the direction ot the
president and a special committee
consisting of Dr. Sage, Dr. Logan and
the Registrar, Mr. Matthews. It is the
duty of the committee to add all new
Canadian stamps to the collection
and also to try and obtain all the old
issues and complete the collection.
The stamps are housed in a single
large volume kept by the registrar,
who is incidentally an enthusiastic
stamp collector himself and an authority' on the subject.
Jubilee Issues
The collection opens with a list of
twelve Canadian stamps issued under Queen Victoria before Confederation. The University alas only has
two. After that things become more
cheering for we have all the stamps
issued under Victoria after Confederation. Among them are several Jubilee stamps picturing on one side the
young girl queen beautiful and vivacious contrasted to the old rather
cross looking widow of over seventy
who adorns the other side. Nothing
could illustrate so effectively the
length of her reign.
Governmental Wiles
A complete collection of King Edward follows. There are among'these
several interesting non perforated
stamps, a whole sheet of two cent
red. There is a story connected with
these. When these, stamps were in
issue the Canadian Government was
horrified to discover that a Toronto
dealer was selling sheets of non perforated red stamps at a dollar a
stamp. There was no record of any
non perforated stamps having been
issued but a careful examination
could not reveal a single flaw in the
stamps. There was not a single error ir. the selling records and lt appeared as if the government had indeed let these non perforated sheets
go through to the post offices unnoticed. The stamps therefore could
not be declared fakes and the dealer
rejoiced and doubled the price. His
jubilation did not last long, however,
for to spoil his luck the government
issued enough non perforated two
cent red stamps to make them worthless to stamp dealers.
King George the Fifth's reign has
been responsible for some of the most
beautiful stamps ever issued in Canada and possibly anywhere in the
Agriculture Honored
Two of these issues are especially
noticeable, the pictorial of 1928 and
the pictorial of I960. In 1928 a twenty
cent red stamp was Issued showing
a team of horses mowing a field of
.prairie wheat, in 1930 the twenty
cent red showed a tractor doing the
same work. A thumbnail history of
Agriculture in stamps.
Besides these there are a beautiful
blue sailing vessel in full sail, the
famous Nova Scotia "Bluenose," Mt.
Edith Cavell in olive green, the
church of Grand Pre in brown and
the old citadel of Quebec in a soft
Ottawa Conference
There is also a very interesting Ottawa Conference stamp, an air mail
issue which bears the post mark, Ottawa, July 12, 1932, the very day the
conference opened, posted in the
very city the conference  was held.
These stamps should be just as interesting to the student of history as to
the collector.
The provinces of British Columbia,
Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island,
and New Brunswick issued stamps of
their own before Confederation. The
University does not possess any of
the first three but has six New
Brunswick stamps.
A Stamp We Don't Have
Before 1851 New Brunswick had
stamps worth one penny, two pennies
and so on. When they changed to
cents the government had a conference with the Postmaster General on
the new stamps.
It was decided to issue six stamps
of which we have five. Several suggestions were made as to the appearance of the stamps. Of course, the
queen must be on one and perhaps
a ship on another. Anyway it could
be left to the discretion of the Postmaster General. When the issue appeared there was the queen and the
vessel but imagine the horror of the
authorities when they discovered that
the Postmaster had decorated the
five cent stamp with his own picture.
Immediately orders went out to collect and destroy the whole five cent
issue. Some of the Postmaster's portraits however eluded the authorities
and were sold. These stamps are
today worth about 15000 and it is
this stamp which our University does
not have.

is a freshman from Skunk Gulch or
some such place and if anyone didn't
ever know the score he's it. He caUed
for me in a flivver which is a cross
between a mouse trap and an egg
beater, but got us there which is a
wonder, considering you had to hold
on the roof and the door shut and at
the same time keep yourself from sUp-
ping through on account of being no
floor. Apart from he had never danced before only with his mother and
some clumsy cow stepped on my dress
and my shoulder straps broke and I
forgot my compact I had a very fine
time. And I'll be a knock-kneed galoot if he didn't have to get home early
and asked my brother to take me
home with his girl which scored a big
hit as you can imagine which only
had fifty cents so told his girl that I
was on a diet when we got to La-
fonda, and as I sat in the rumble and
watched them eating veal barbecues
which are my favorite I thought to
myself that so much hardship in one
evening is enough to make an atheist out of a person. ,

these are shortcomings of the play
alone. For we further witness the result of extremely sensitive directing
and of admirable acting on the part
ot many players.
The leading roles were all capably
handled, the exacting part of Mark
Sabre especially. The chief danger
seemed an inclination to overact, and
in at least one case, to caricature.
Ona wonders if it occured to the
management that there is some disparity between a play attempting tragedy and the jazz of Frank Gilbert's
Rhythmic Serenaders who provided
mu-ic in the intervals?—J. B. C.

The high calibre of debating exhibited at
the recent contest with the Stanford University
men is truly a credit to the local Parliamentary
Forum. Under the enthusiastic and untiring tutelage of Professor J. Friend Day, the art of
debating has been raised from a moribund
state to one of the major intellectual activities
on the campus.
One of the interesting factors brought out
at the debate was the attitude adopted by the
American team. A few years ago not many
American students would have had the temerity to attack their own country in such a fashion. Today there is a very commendable spirit
which is becoming more and more noticeable
of self-criticsm among the Amercan people,
in the intelligent reviews and among thinking
Such a spirit of constructive self-criticism
might well be adopted in Canada. For too long
there has been an attitude of complacent super-
iorty. An impartial examination into the weaknesses and foibles of our cherished institutions
might well be salutary in its effects.
Ripple of waves along the lonely shore,
Gurgling among the1 seaweed-covered rocks:
Rustle of water trickling from the bank
Joining a myriad tongues in murmuring prayer.
A still, black sheet of deep, full-flowing sea,
A heavy, starless canopy of cloud.
A cool salt breeze caressing sea and land,
A mantle of blue haze the mountains wear.
Soft, soothing music comes from far away,
A nymph-like song, mysterious as sweet
Rising and falling with the fitful breeze
More still than deepest silence, fills the air.
A raucous, sleepy cry
Shatters the breathless night: ,
A flap of heavy wings
A startled sea-bircTs flight!
Silence again: a pregnant, living calm
The water's liquid swish, the sighing wind
And, fading to a whisper yet audible and clear,
That eerie elfin music, melodious and rare.
—J. Allan Spragge.
All hail to the vaunted Artsmen's spirit.
Once more they have distinguished themselves
as the most upstanding and downsittng faculty
on the campus. So determined were the Arts-
men to make the Arts-Aggie ball a success,
the majority of them stayed away.
As an exclusive party there is no doubt that
the ball was a success, but as an example of
Arts enthusiasm, and as a financial triumph it
was decidedly a failure.
What is the reason for the lack of spirit
shown by this faculty ? It is true that it was
a busy week, as far as social functions were
concerned. It was also a sort of anti-climax
after the excitement of the inter-collegiate
series. And one must not forget Old Man Depression.
But the fact remains that if the ball had been
held by the other major faculty under the
same conditions, it.would have been a rousing
success, financially, numerically and socially.
The Arts faculty as a body are a defunct issue,
crawling along with the support of a few enthusiastic and faithful members, but burdened
with a load of apathetic dead-heads.
At the meeting of tte Arts Men's Undergrad
Society called to discuss ways and means to
ensure the success'of their major social function, six faithful, and optimistic Artsmen appeared. All hail to the worthy six. May their
names be preserved amongst the immortals,
to receive the homage of Artsmen yet unborn.
Sere and brown
The withered leaves droop down
Brown and sere
Over the landscape drear
Moved by the weary wind, they drift along
Scraping a mournful melancholy song.
The sky is like a sick face, pale and drawn-
All Nature makes lament for summer gone.
—Norton Wilson.
Oh, Mr. Mayse, good Mr. Mayse,
My heart is filled with woe:
The wantonness your pen displays
As calmly, cruelly, it flays
The dearest cherished of my lays
Has struck a mortal blow.
How lusty once my pride did thrive—
That is, when it was still alive
And joyous with conceit.
I only hope that someone rails
At you, and drops your woodland tales
In tatters at your feet.
And then, dear sir, perchance you'll find
That wisdom lies in being kind
To dabblers in metre.
And when at last your hour has run
That candid carping may be fun
But tolerance is sweeter.
—Norton Wilson.
Well, why not ? The Christmas Plays are
being shown at the University this week
and on Thursday night admission to the Auditorium will be free. This means that for the
price of nothing but a bus ticket to and fro
(or less if you can chisel from your friends)
you can see four plays, in which the concentrated effort alone is worth more than the
price of two bus tickets.
The Players Club has spent not a little time
and a great deal of effort, in directing and producing these plays. Lack of appreciation is
discouraging in work like this, and the University Players Club seems to be appreciated
everywhere but on the campus. Keep in mind
that you are getting a finished product for
nothing, and turn out on Thursday night to see
these plays.
My dear Mr. Mayse:
Upon glancing at your column in the Ubyssey, my attention was attracted to that rather
clever cartoon at the head of the aforesaid column. It intrigued me to tbe extent of perusing
your pithy piece. Heaven protect me in future
from such misleading devices.
Your column is, I must admit, intriguing—
if you are interested in psychology. It is an
excellent example of conceit. For instance:
taking the task upon one's shoulders to carry
criticism to acknowledged masters of poetry—
Alfred Noyes for example. Coming from
such confident and extreme youth it is insufferable.
If you would take the trouble to go into
a little research on poetry instead of Arthur
Mayse, your little sheet might bear proof of
less conceit and more common sense.
The echo, mentioned in our last column, has
come back about our ears with a vengeance.
First from Norton Wilson, who signs his name
in straightforward fashion, then from someone
who jumps out at us from behind a fence, as
it were. We might explain that the contribution in question wasn't scorned—merely
snowed under in the general chaos of the Apes-
Our ears are burning, but we're happy, for
we've found a new way of obtaining contributions. We shall remember this in future, when
the prevailing apathy has descended again, and
the column is full of A.M. in large and nauseating doses.
As for the actual criticisms, we'll stand by
our guns. We like certain of Noyes' work, his
'Drake' and his 'Tales of a Mermaid Tavern.'
But in other places, where the influence of
Swinburne is too strong upon him, our opinion is that his verses are more song than sense.
Bystander's attitude—and by'the way, we
dislike this tilting at shadows—impresses us as
being quaintly medieval. "A cat may look at a
king," is the modern viewpoint.

Above you see, an impression of Dr
W. A. Carrothers done in black and
white by Elizabeth Crawshaw.
Dr. Carrothers strives with a great
deal of success to instill into the minds
of some of the students pertinent economic facts, chiefly financial.
Pat, as he is known to his fellow
faculty members and a few of the
nervier students, has had a distinguished carrer, and by all indications
it will continue to be distinguished
unless the secret hopes o certain bankers and members of the Kidd Committee are realized.
Dr. Carrothers is a graduate of the
University of Manitoba, situated according to the latest available information at Winnipeg. He stayed at that
University long enough to obtain his
degree, and then being .Irish, he insisted on leaving in 1915 for a small
dog fight that was taking place in
Pat wen^ over with the 44th Canadian Infantry but during the last year
of the war he transferred' his affections to the Royal Air Force. Apparently the idea of playing hide and seek
with German planes appealed to Dr.
Carrothers as he was decorated with
the Distinguished Flying Cross.
After the Germans had decided it
was useless to continue the struggle,
Dr. Carrothers went to the University
of Edinburgh where he obtained his
Ph. D. and his wife. Acceding to the
requests of the canny Scotchmen he
stayed at "Auld Reekie" for another
year, this time as a professor. Then
he came back to Canada and the University of Saskatchewan.
While at the University of Saskatchewan Dr. Carrothers obtained
leave of absence for a year and went
to Europe. While touring Europe he
found time to stop at the London
School of Economics and write an au-
thorative book on immigration called
"Immigration from the British Isles."
Dr. Carrothers first contact with the
University of B. C. was in 1928 when
ho lectured here at the Summer Session.
In 1930 Pat found that no underwear
made was thick enough to justify
living on the prairies, so he came to
the coast. Since arriving here Dr.
Carrothers has had time to criticize the
Kidd Report, speak before every organization in town, and serve as one
of the three members of the Dominion
Single Unemployed men's Commission
for B. C. Last summer when the Commission on Banking was here, both Dr.
Carrothers and Gerry McGeer spoke
before lt. Dr. Carrothers did not refer
to either the Deity or Abe Lincoln
but according to advance copies of the
Macmlllan report, his speech was not
unappreciated by the members. He is
affilated with an international secret
society on this campus which designates itself with the Greek letters
Zeta and Psi.
Dr. Carrothers is generally an orna-
men of the annual C.O.T.C. ball, which
he graces in his capacity of major in
command of A company.
Editor,  "Ubyssey", Dear Sir:
It is a pleasure to me to write my
first letter to Ubyssey for the purpose of returning thanks.
I wish to thank the students who
rallied to the debate last Friday,
their support was gratifying indeed.
Thanks are due to the authorities of
Ubysey for their helpful publicity,
a valuable aid in which the traditional custom of other editors is being carried on .
Finally, I wish to thank Brown and
Conway for the quality of their debating, I have heard of nothing but
praise for a hardly-contested struggle, of which the decision was very
doubtful (so far as my judgment
went) until I had actually received
the curds from the judges.
Believe  me  to be,
Faithfully yours,
J. Friend Day.
What about it men of U. B. C?
Are we going to let things drift as
they surely are into another conflict,
or are we going to organize at once
determined not to fight?

Editor, Ubyssey, Sir:
We must start a peace movement
at once! It is time that the young men
of the University of British Columbia came out on the question of
peace recently initiated by the University of Oxford, We must allign
ourselves at once on the side of peace;
that we are opposed to war and will
on no account fight for King and
Country. The great universities of
the land, Oxford, Columbia and Toronto have all come out on the question. British Columbia should be the
We must remember that it isn't
these politicians and generals who
will fight in the next war but the
young men of all nations, especially
university men, who will face this
attack. Let us come out now, while
there is still time, while peace still
exists, that on no account will we go
to war, unless of course our country is actually Invaded. It will be too
late if we leave this question until
war arrives, because just as in 1914,
the people, especially young women,
will call us traitors, cowards, yellow
and hang the white feather upon us.
But if wa show the people that we
are determined not to fight and will
no longer be food for the guns and
be exploited by these great internationally Allied armament firms, perhaps our politicians and diplomats
will be a little more careful in precipitating us in a bloody slaughter.
This movement should be started
here at once and by an organization
and active program especially through
the universities, we will be better
able to focus public opinion against
this stupid and most deadly ancl
bloody means of combat. The idea of
super-patriotism is no longer tolerated by clear thinking and intelligent men. It was perhaps permissablc
during the last century in that period of Imperialism, but those days
are gone nnd people can no longer
listen to this kind of talk. But it is
no good talking about it like our
politicians, we must act immediately.
Editor, Ubyssey, Dear Sir:
May I point out this "organizing
not to fight" which J. G. Hill calls for
in this issue is not as desirable as he
I imagine he dnsires something more
direct than the peacefully inclined
I. R. C, Cosmopolitan Club, S. C. M.,
even, perhaps the Historical Club.
But what?
An Anti-War Club as recently organized at Toronto, would be undesirable. Pacifism should flower in
the hearts of men, not in their club
rooms. If that sounds rhetorical, I
mean pacifism must be an individual
conviction rather than a club charter. Anyway, a spirited Anarchists'
Circle could easily wreck the club-
rooms whenever the spirit moved
A mass meeting (of which I have
heard rumors) would show nothing
beyond thc fact that the issue is interesting enough to collect a crowd.
That they might cheer Peace till
exhausted is nothing. They would
cheer the next war to end war as
vigorously a year hence. Emotion carries the crowd, not reason. And there
is really no difference beyond the
issue, betwen an anti-war and a
pro-war meeting. And again, what
would be a more delightful pastime
for the Anarchists' Circle than to
turn an anti-war meeting into free-
An official debate Is more reasonable. Only students who think (however painfully) debate at all. And of
such are usually the controllers of
civilization's forces. Yet a debate only
serves as a straw in the wind.
The "organizing of peace" university students undertake, I believe,
must occur within the individual. I
hope this "mental disarmament" may
be aided by some recent books on
the Question of peace that I will review shortly in Friday's Ubyssey.
