Last Tribute
Paid to Great
English Poet
"Thomas Hardy" was the subject ot
aa Interesting lecture hy Dr. Sedgewick on Monday morning. On the
tome day the ashes of the late Thomas
Hardy were laid to rest in England,—
part In Westminster Abbey, and part
In Dorset, the author's early and beloved home.
1 Dr. Sedgewlok told of the lite and
Jittvlronment  of  the  great  man  of
stters, and of how this life and this
Svironment had combined to make
e Thomas Hardy, as known by his
Thomas Hardy was born ln June,
1840, during the period of great Victorian unrest, "He was born vocal to
tragedy,"  said  Dr.  Sedgewlok,  who
Sent on to show the spirit of the
mes trom examples ot contemporary
The great cause of this unrest was
scientific. Geology had arisen and substituted history for myth. New dls-
oovereles were disturbing, all striking
Suddenly the old established ideals
and traditions.
In 1859 the publication ot Darwin's
''Origin ot Species" spread the new
ideas and carried a conviction to
winking people that shook the very
foundation of their ideals. Accordingly Hardy's world was a world
in which the old myths became singularly inadequate." What had been im*
Slued came to be believed as tact,
til rudo reality stepped in and
mangled these facts.
Hardy was a "man of the earth"
with a humble upbrluglng. He was
Sensitive to nature and to dumb life,
and he hated the caging of things,
•then came his training as an architect, which developed his sense ot
structure and passion for order. Moreover he read profoundly In Qreek
tragedy and no doubt this encouraged
his deep sensitive feeling to humanity.
This was the man that found himself
ta a world ot spiritual and social unrest. He recognised law in the world
but saw that lt was cold unfeeling
mathematical law, whioh did not regard humanity.
Hardy realised thai free-willed loving kindness, operated in an intelligent
Scientific way, would do much to relieve the suffering of the world. "The
way to the better, if there be one,
exacts a look at the worst." In closing
Dr. Sedgewick pointed ont that university students with their groat
opportunities, wero more responsible
than perhaps any other class, for working for the better, and so Investigating
tho worst.
When Murphy meets Murphy-
there will be excitement to Bay the
This will .be proved conclusively
on Wednesday afternoon at 3 p.m.
when Hon. Paul Murphy, a prominent member ot the Students' Parliament will launch a vigorous attack
on the Hon. Denis Murphy, the
present prime minister, by moving a
resolution ot uo-confldence in Murphy
I's government.
Although it may seem immaterial
which ot the Murphy replicas rules
the destiny of the House, the debate
promises to be acrimonious, as the
policies and legislation of the ruling
party will be under Are. The opposition Is clamouring tor actiou, while
tho government, anxious to retain
the goodwill ot the numerous Independent members, will support Us
policy to the last.
The opposition Intends to bring in
a motion: "Resolved that this House
go on  record as expressing  Its  ap-
firoval of tho measures and resolu-
Ions ot this years' Student Council."
Another motion mentioned reads
thus: "Resolved that bathing suits
should be regulated." It this question
is brought up, no student of seventeen
years of age or under will be admitted.
All politicians should turn out to
this first meeting of the year at 3
p.m. on Wednesday, January 18th, in
Arts 100.
Debaters to Engage
Saskatchewan Friday
On Friday night of this week Varsity
students will receive the flrst of two
chances ottered them this term to hear
an intercollegiate debato. On that
night at 8:16 in the Auditorium of
King Eklward High School, lith Ave.,
and Oak Street, Denis Murphy and
Orevllle Rowland will meet a team
from the University ot Saskatchewan.
The subject which has been choson
for the debate is, "Resolved that economic Imperialism Is a perpetual menace to International peace," This topic
lends itself to those abstruse specula*
tions, devious thoughts, and subtle Interpretations by which debaters
attempt to prove their points. It is
mooted that our men will cast jaundiced eyes at the past while their
opponents will regard the future as
clothed in angelic light.
Ths chairman ot the meeting will be
Mr. William Taylor, President of the
Literary and Scientific Department,
who will welcome the visiting team on
behalf of tho University.
The Saskatchewan team will probably arrive on Thursday, A program of
entertainment is being arranged for
them. Two Georges compose the team,
George Britnell and George Naiuby.
The former is registered in Arts and
Science while the latter halls form
Emmanuel College. Both are spoken
of as good debaters who will make our
speakers produce all their debating
ability to win.
Varsity's representatives. Denis
Murphy and Orevllle Rowland, are two
seasoned speakers, each having taken
part ln an international debate before.
Orevllle Rowland is debates manager
thia year. He has taken part in Vancouver Debating League fixtures and
last year he debated against Washington under the Oregon plan of debating.
He is a quick thinker and an easy,
fluent speaker.
Denis Murphy has been an international debater since his freshman year
and last year he and Albert Whltely
gained a unanimous decision over the
University of Idaho. He has been
active in inter-class and Vancouver Debating League contests and carried off
second prize in last year's oratorical
contest. As a speaker he combines
argumentation and rhetorical offect to
produce a persuasive impression. Our
home team is a very formidable combination, and should be supported by a
large attendance at the debate.
The judges will probably be Rev.
Col. G. Fallis, the Hon. Mr. Justice
Morrison, and ll. L, Maitland, Esq.
For the convenience of the students
tickets are being sold by Illll Thompson, Norman Gold, Norman Manson,
Paul Myrphy, Clifford MaeKay, Alice
Weaver and Owen Musgruve. Tickets
may also be purchased at the duor ou
the night of the debate.

The Ubyssey pays a last tribute
to the memory ot Undine Howay,
a graduate of the Class of '27,
who died in Paris on Sunday. Tho
news of her death camo as a
terrible shock to those among the
students who had known her. She
was unquestionably one of the
most respected and admired mem-'
bers of her year, not alone for her
scholastic ability but for her
character and loyalty as a friend.
Her record would be difficult to
rival. Always a flrst class student, in her graduating year Undine won the French Government
scholarship and the much-coveted
Alliance Francalse Gold Medal.
Her paper on Samuel Pepys at the
Letters Clubs will be remembered
as one of the best, by those who
had the good fortune to hear it.
We who have known Undine,
who have admired her for her
achievements and loved her tor
her happy and loyal character, extend our sincere sympathy to her
bereaved parents.
For four years we have known
her as one always to be relied
upon, a devoted friend, a happy
and courageous personality, but
above all as a student of the very
highest, type. Quietly and Independently she sought the things
most valuable in a college education, and in paying our tribute to
Undine Howay, we shall remember her as one who consciously
made education add fundamentally to the joy and beauty of living.
Varsity Hoopsters
Win From Adanacs
Norma I Gym. was the scene of a
snappy basketball game on Saiunlay
nlnln, when the local Senior "H" boy«
tangled with ihe Adanacs, emerging
on the long end 20—17 count.
Both teams were full of fight from
the start and the few spectator!* were
well entortalned. Varsity's victory
wae not secure until the final whistle,
with the Royals fighting hard to overcome the three-point lead.
Adanacs opened the scoring with a
pretty basket by Watson, after ten
minutes of battle. Harold Strelght replied at once with a beautiful shot
from centre. Two more by Nicholson
and Berto, with a couple of fouls by
Watson for the Adanacs, ended the
scoring for the half.
The second period started with a
rush, both teams fighting hard for an
opening. The checking was very close
and long shots were the only ones possible. The Royals threatened at two
points ln the half, and evened up the
score, Towards the end, however,
Bill Thompson got two fast baskets
which gave Varsity the lead with
which they finished. Nicholson and
Strelght were perhaps the hardest
working of the Collegians, but the
squad as a whole were combining and
working together well.
The teama: Adanacs—Auno (b),
Butler (2), Stoddart (fl), Bourne, Watson (6).
Varaity—Little (8), Strelght (2),
Thompson H), Nicholson (8), McCal
lum, Berto (3).

Seienct Defeats King Edward Old Boys 19-0; Arts Lota
to Rowing Club 13-0
Senior Rugby broke even in the flrst games of the Tlsdall series over
the week-end when a bard-fighting Arts team went down to a It*t> defeat
before the fast Rowing Olub squad while the Sclenoe aggregation iwafflpsd
the King Edward Old Boys to the tune of 19*0, ;,
Both teams were partly disorganised, owing to the loss of members
by toe conferring of B.A.c.'s and to injuries received In recent games, ftniu
at (fit the Arts team put up a game fight, pressing the Olub often and nt*
queftly on their own Hue. Arts lacked Only the necessary finish to get tat
ball over. Tbe loss ot Howard Baton on the wlug< who strained a III
a week ago, was evident, his hard tackling and test fet*a*vay being fro
asset ih that quarter. Christmas Exams also took, their toll from the "$
ad" boys, and when one considers that this squad has only had one ww
out in six weeks we don't see that r=s-*---**--esst-*i-**--t**ei^^
the Rowing Club has anything to
spout about.
Tho bowler hat aggregation are In
mourning over the loss of Harold
Kelly, star place kicker, and five-
eighths. Another Christmas debutante Is Phil Barratt who feels the
call of the open spaces. Both these
boys are McKechnie cup men and
the team will feel their loss keenly.
In the first game Arts were just
waking up wheu Leroy went across
tor tbe Club. The tarnished gold
outfit kicked off with Ken Noble right
under the ball, smashing his way up
to the club line. Arts were pressing
hard and getting dangerously near
but could not get the leather back to
the threes. Play continued in the
Rowers home area and an offside
gave Arts a free kick. "Ookie"
Shields playing on the three line
attempted the penalty but his effort
fell short.
The Oarsmen relieved with a long
punt which "Spike" Mclnnls ran back
with all the speed ot a wing three*
"Dicky" Bright was working hard
but most ot the play was on a
crowded blind side and he was too
well marked. Fraser, as halt, was
playing a good forward game, although
the scrum were not heeling out.
Leroy Intercepted and was brought
down by Shields. The Olub was on
Varsity's five line, but the scrum held,
Wilson got the ball, ran behind the
posts and punted for touch.
On another kick, play went to
centre field. Chappell took a fast
pass and made a long gain but was
brought down in a heavy tackle. The
boys went in for their vitamlnes the
halt ending 3-0 ln favor of the Club.
In tho next canto, Arts plunged ln
and kept the play In centre field.
"Reg" Wilson aud Ken Noble wen-
much in evidence ln the forwards.
The threes were fumbling. Jack
Richardson took a fast pass but his
repass went awry. Ken Fraser waa
continually playing a heavy forward
garne fighting in the scrum. Chappell
and Bright made a dazzling run but
Jaojted support. Then Dicky tied his
ankle up ln knots and was carried
off   to   stay.
Following a mess of scrums the
club scored. Arts brought the play
back to the club's line and were
nearly over. The redshlrts relieved,
and on a bad signal went through
centre for another touch. Mclnnes
received a heavy tackle and the club
again    went    over.
The whole game showed a lack of
practice on the part of some members of the teams; finish in getting
the leather back to the three and
unsteady tackling by the threes were
much in evidence. A certain looseness
was apparent. Two or three hard
work-outs, which every man should
foel his duty to attend, will produce
a good team and much should be
heard from this squad In the future.
The team: Mclnnes, Shields, Richardson, Chappell, Bright, Ingledew, McNeill, Fraser, Player, Mason, B'*own,
Noble, Wilson, Farrls, Phillips,
In the second game on the lower
field Sclenoe played flashy football.
Handicapped by the loss of Bill Locke,
Jimmy Sinclair with a broken nose,
Harold Kelly and Phil Barratt, the
boilermakers went through the Mount
Pleasant fathers like a doseu cream-
puffs. Bud Murray took the kick and
on a follow up the torwarda went
over the line on what looked like a
sure score. It was not called and
following a scrum the Old Boys relieved to centre field. Gord, Logan
punted for the Blue and Gold and
following a line out Varsity got the

By all indications, the members of this year's graduating class
have not profited by the terrible examples of their predecessors in
the matter of "write tips" for the "Totem."
Last year the "Ubyssey" wasted valuable ink and space in begging, pleading, bullying and satirizing the class of '27 for the express purpose of killing the absurdity of the traditional "personal"
paragraph. Alt was in vain, however—the 1927 "Totem" was full
of simpering inanities unworthy of a backwoods high school, let
ilone a prominent University.
Silly effusions on the victim's "blue eyes, curly hair and winning smile," references in questionable taste to "necking" and "petting," sickly sentiment, and collections of words "full of sound and
fury* signifying nothing," were the rule rather than the exception.
It appeared that the average student thought that it was his—or
her-—duty to be clever and epigrammatic—and the result was either
Silly artificiality or a vague copying of some predecessor's style.
The Class of '28 has yet time to redeem itself. It can break the
precedent and execute really sane write-ups for the Annual. A
write-up should consist of a brief and accurate summing-up of the
Student s achievements and activities throughout his (or her) career, and a list of the teams, clubs and societies of which he (or
she) Is a member. Above all, there should be none of the "bilge"
that usually serves to cover the deficiencies of some students in
these respects.
If this cannot be done, it is time for the individual "write-up" to
be abolished.
In a recent edition of a Vancouver daily, mention was made of
the poor support given to U. B. C. teams. As long as we are alone
in our recognition of our own "backsliding," affairs do not seem
so bad, but when outside correspondents begin to notice and comment upon the failure of students to support their teams, it is time
some remedial measures were adopted.
The same state of affairs has occurred before. Three years ago
the students were startled out of their apathy to some extent by a
Rooters' Club. For some time this organization did good work,
but as soon as its existence became no longer an absolute necessity,
It died a natural death. The time has come when some similar
organization must do the same work for our student body.
At present it seems that there is not sufficient activity on the
part of athletic heads. It is all very well to denounce the Hstless-
ness of the common garden-variety student, but after all, that student must be shown reasons for a change in his attitude. He must
be shown that he will be repaid for his expenditure of money and
time. Until such a demonstration be made, our teams must
continue to lament, and outside reporters to make caustic comments.
The remedy, then, would seem to lie in advertising. Pretty
freshettes may sell a few tickets, but the average undergraduate
who buys does so for what may be termed ulterior motives; the
real inclination to attend the game and support the team is not one
whit greater.
It must be recognized by now that an attempt to tell the undergrad. that it is his duty to support University athletics will fail to
get results. Vancouver's sport scribe may be right in assuming that
to a student a moral obligation is a laughable thing. In any case, let
some effort be made to interest the student in the various contests,
and let us have some organization which will make this attempt in
an ordered and intelligent manner.
Sophs to Meet Frosh
It is "Resolved that no student shall
be expelled from the University at
Christmas." This Is the subject chosen
by Arts 'SO and Arts '31 for their for-
ensio struggle which takes place on
Wednesday, January 25th. This question Is ef supreme Importance to the
students of the University, especially
with the Frosh. Arts '81 has a chanoe
to express their opinions on the mat-
tar, as they naturally have the negative side to uphold.
Other debates have been arranged,
Arts '39 meeting Arts '28 on February
1st and Agriculture meets Science on
February 8th.
Aa for the women debaters, Arts '28
bave the affirmative against Arts '29
on the following topic: "Resolved that
modern weakness of the family as a
sooial unit is beneficial to the race."
This takes place In Arts '100 on Thursday, January 26th.
A meeting of the Mathematics Club
will be held Thursday, January 19th
at 12.10 pm. in Arts 200. A good
attendance Is requested.
Playing at Strathcona Park on Saturday afternoon, the Fresh Rugby
team divided the honours with the
Meraloma "B's" to the tune of 3—3.
The game waa hotly contested
throughout. During the first half Ack-
eriy went over for a try, which was
countered by a drop-kick made from
a distance out by Falkner of Meralomas The Oreen boys were handicapped considerably by the loss of a lew
of their players. The pick for the
Frosh were Gaul, Wilson, Cleveland
and Griffin.
On Wednesday, Jan. 18, ln room
App. Sc. 100, at 12 o'clock, there will
be an address on "The Cariboo Highway" by Mr. Patrick Philip, Deputy
Minister of Public Works.
This Is an exceptionally Interesting
arid rutin and will be illustrated by lantern slides. All students are invited
to attend.
Amazons Concoct
Leap Year Plans
In the Auditorium on Friday last
that portion of the unfair sex. which
Inhabits this "neck of the woods," held
an allegedly closed meeting to complete tholr plans for the confusion
and utter rout of the sterner sex.
The meeting was opened ln the
proper spirit by Miss Hope Leemlng,
the chleftalness (or -ette) of the Amnions, and the main business of the
meeting wbb Introduced gently and
tactfully by a discussion of the approaching feminine gala, euphemistically known as "HIOH JINKS," which
will take place on Monday, January 80
at the Peter Pan hall, commencing
at 8 p.m. sharp. There will be an admission fee of twenty-five cents and
all men, or things that look like men,
an* advised for their own sakes to
stay far away from the Peter Pan hall
and to remember that "the female of
tho species (particularly of this species), is more deadly than the male."
The meeting then got down to the
main subject of the debate, namely
the Leap Year Ball; the Heaven-sent
opportunity for the much-abused aud
greatly neglected wallflower to take
a full and lasting revenge on that
haughty and capricious creature, man,
who has so long left her to bloom
(and blush), unseen and unuotloed,
save by catty, but more fortunate acquaintances,
The locale of the dance was an*
nounoed as the Georgian room of the
Hudson's Bay Company's store. The
time is from 9 to 1 on the evening of
Wednesday, February 29. The representatives of the speaker sex, there
assembled, then entered on a long,
and at times acrimonious, debate on
the costumes (or lack ot costumes),
that were to be worn on the momentous occasion. Judging by the fragments of speeches that sifted under
the curtains and up to the drops, there
was no style of costume that lacked
Its champion. The tuxedo and even*
Ing gown found warm supporters, aud
the honor of Fancy Dress was doughtily upheld. There was even one person who advocated making the ball
a children's party. This was, however,
felt to be too appropriate to be polite;
the suggestion was allowed to die a
speedy death ,out of consideration
for the Frosh, froaen out in the cold
and chilly silence.
After an excess of verbiage and
much evanescent persiflage, a voice
rose out of the froth of words, declaiming that it moved the dancers
be clothed ln formal dress. The tide
of words threatened to swell up again,
but it was held back for a moment
by another voice that seconded the
motion. Then, however, there was
no stemming the tide. It rose higher and higher, ln sixteen different keys.
Far away Aggies, peacefully tending their cows and dreaming of their
annual festivities next week, were
startled out of their stolid and bovine calm by fragments of language
that assailed their untutored ears,
long accustomed only to the moo,
bleat, neigh, holnk, or what have you,
of their animal friends. Placid bo-
vines, four-legged ones, ceased their
grazing and looked round In Astonishment, as "take our men to tho
Commodore," ' aw, the men won't
dress In fancy drens," ETC. ETC,
ETC! hurtled past their gently waving ears.
What passes for calm in a Woman's Undergrad meeting was eventually arrived at and the full-dross motion was defeated, to Judge by the
noise, overwhelmingly. After approximately 8,934,765, 284, ^'Jtlis more
words It was decided by an enthusiastic majority that the ball was to be
a fancy dress affair, that the girls
were to buy the tickets ($2.00 each),
Invite the boys, provide the transportation, fill out the boys' programs
and escort them home.
This business being safely completed, four voice* moved the adjournment of the meeting, seventeen more
seconded the motion, and the whole
meeting .carried it out.
As the hall finally became empty,
three men emerged from their hiding-places and stole out, one hieing
to the Pub and commenced to pound
a typewriter.
The next meeting of "Der Deutsche
Verein" will be held on Thursday,
January 19, at the home of Miss Ruth
Macdonald, 4428 Hudson Avenue, at
7.45. As plans for the German programme are to be discussed, a good
attendance Is desired.

Monday 9th.
Won slx-blts mstchlng coins to-day.
Pretty snappy. Bill and I Just noticed a big building with a pond In
front ot It. Wonder what it IsT Must
be a trat house. Heard a good story
to-day ln the common room.   It goes
like this	
(Censored by order of the Editor-in-
Chief); it's pretty lonely here now,
most of the gang got bounced at Xmas.
Tuesday 10th.
I made a discovery today, The
building with a pond in front of It
is not a frat-house. Bill and 1 walk*
ed all round It and there wero no bottles lying about. I wanted to go ln
but Bill said "better not. There might
be some Arts men inside and I don't
want a scrap with this sweater on."
Lost fifty cents matching coins.
Something went wrong with my lab.
experiment. The stuff boiled over.
I got a lot on my trousers. They have
turned yellow and smell terrific If
things keep on like this I vrobably
will have to buy a new pair.
My sweat shirt Is pretty dirty so
I turned lt inside out.
Wednesday 11th.
I washed my face today. It was
like this; I v»on two dollars today
from BUI on a bet and he got sore
and threw his pen at me. The ink
got on my nose and so I simply had
to wash.
We went into the building with the
pond in front of it. There was a re*
volving door and Bill tried to see how
fast he could make it turn. Then a
man with a beard bounced us. Bill
says that it must be the Theology
College, but Judging by the beard I
think Its the House of David.
Thursday 12th
I have a bad cold today. Had a fight
with some Artsmen. Bill got bis
sweater swiped, but we won. The
bell rang and all tbe Artsmen went
to their lectures, leaving us the field.
We went Into the big building
after the fight. We went in by the
basement door. We only started
whlBtling to listen to the echo when
the guy with the beard camo running
down the stairs and threw us out.
Judging by his language I don't think
that place Is the Theology College
after all. My sweat-shirt looked awful grimy, so I turned It inside out.
Friday  13th.
That building with pond ln front
is only the Library. We saw a Prof,
come out, so we asked him what it
was. After he told us we didn't
Dother to go ln because we each own
a book anyway. Won $1.40 matching coins,
We had a great, tlmo sinking songs
lu the lab. today until the prof, stop-
ued us. He said that people outside
might hear what we were singing
and he didn't want the reputation of
the University spoiled.
Saturday 14th.
Another week over. Spent the afternoon playing pool downtown. My
sweat-shirt looked so black I turned
lt Inside out. Went to the "Pan." and
finished up with poker until 3 a.m.
Lost nine bucks.

Varsity handed Vancouver its first
black eye of the season at Connaught
Park on Saturday afternoon, when
the men's grass hockey emerged victorious from a hard-fought game on
the long end of a 2-1 score.
The undefeated league-leaders did
not like the idea of losing to the
lowly tallenders, and played a fast
snd hard-fought game. Varsity, however, had obtained an early lead, and
determined to hold it
Varsity won the toss, started off
with a rush. Clark passed to Preston who snapped In a nice shot but
tho defenders saved. Then followed
S  mld-fleld  skirmish  until  D'harml
Cent the ball  back into Vancouver
irrltory.   Preston pounced on it like
a Cougar, slunk through the opposing
defense, and slammed In uumber one
for Varsity.
After the center bully the Vancouver
{orwards determined to take the ball
m to see Oould, Varsity's new find,
Who hits ths ball whenever It tried
to sneak past him between the goal
The ball got no further than Gould,
Iherror, who delights In getting the
ball at center-halt and feeding it to
ills farwards, batted it down the flold.
;Tbe Varsity forwards combined well
Skid alter a skirmish in front of the
Vancouver net they scored their sec-
Sad goal.
In the first part of the second half,
play see-sawed from end to end. but
gradually the pace began to tell on
|e Varsity forwards. As a result the
ineouver team, now playing down
Dill, began to launch a steadv often-
live, with the students settling back
dn the defense.
i H was then that the Varsity defease -played Its  best, game In the
history of university  grass hockey,
rime after time the Vancouver forwards bored in, rnly to be stopped
by Richmond or Lee, or to have their
Well-directed shots coolly stopped and
'brushed aside by Gould.    Only once
jwere  the  aggressors  able  to  penetrate  this impregnable defense and
jscore their lone tally.
(T Towards the end ot the game, the
(Varsity forwards bhee more got under
•JF/ay, and when the final whistle blew
Varsity again looked like a winning
learn.    Varsity  liue-up:    Qold,  Lee,

St. Saviours Defeat
j       First Soccer Squad
r Varsity first, soccer team played
•their best game ot the season when
they were narrowly beaten by St.
Saviours at Athletic Park. The field
was very wet and muddy so that good
football was Impossible.
, The score 6-3 hardly represents the
run of play for two of St. Saviours
goals were rather lucky. Owing to
the late-coming ot Cy. Manning,
Varsity went on the field with ten
men, and were handicapped for about
ten minutes. It, wus In these ten
minutes that Gt. Saviours scored
their first goal. The lead was shortlived, however, for Gaudin acoreii a
neat goal for Varsity.
St. Saviours, however, added another goal to regain the lead but
right trom the kick-off Gaudin scored
again on a neat pass from Todd. Just
before half-time St. Saviours added
their third goal leaving the score at
3-2 ln favor of the Saints.
At the beginning of the second St.
Saviours scored their fourth goal. On
a lone rush Mel Gaudin was fouled
ln the penalty area and on the resultant kick Gaudin scored his third
goal of the day. The crowd became
excited and called for another f.oal
but it was not forth-comlug and just
before the end St. Saviours added
their fifth goal

Churchmen Win
in Junior Game
On Saturday last Christ Church
beat Varsity Juniors 5-1 in a League
fixture. Although the count was
one sided, Varsity had some unlucky
breaks and bad most of the play.
In the flrst five minutes Christ
Church scored. Varsity soon equalized through Stafford but weakness
»t half-back gave the Church right
wing two more goals. Half time
Christ Church 8—Varsity 1.
In the second session Varsity
pressed hard and had all.the play.
They could not score, however, due
to a brilliant display by the opposing
goalkeeper and to poor finishing by
the Varsity forwards. Ths Church
right wing was again allowed to do
as he pleased and netted two more
goals. Varsity never gave up trying,
however, and were pressing at the
Por Varsity, Stafford and Wright
did clever work. England worked
hard. The half hacks were not as
good as usual, Price ln particular being off form, The Varsity backs bad
more than their usual share of work
and performed well. Mitchell played
an excellent game and several times
pulled Varsity out of tbe fire. On tho
play Varsity were superior and did not
deserve to lose by so large a score.
Playing two men short the Freshmen put up a hard fight in their
tussle against Cave!) Athletic at
Heather Park Saturday.
Shortly after the opening of tbe
Second Half Varsity was leading 3-2
but the r»ace was too great against
the fully-manned Cavell squad, who
scored ■ three times in the last few
minutes of the game leaving the
final score 6-8 in their favor,
The Freshmen put up a good game
and all worked hard. Jaok Currle
though new to the position, put up
a fine exhibition of goal tending.
With a full team Varsity would have
had little trouble in turning in a
Varsity II. battled Army and Navy
to a draw on Saturday scoring two
goals against two by Army aud Navy.
The game was fast and evenly contested all the way. Bill Latta scored
flrst for Varsity on a beautiful piece
of individual work, but A. St N.
evened the score twenty minutes
later leaving the count tied at half-
time. A. & N. took the lead shortly after the cross-over and held their
margin until ten minutes from time
when Bud Cook scored a pretty goal
to even up the count once again.
For the Blue and Oold squad
Dekema in goal was outstanding. He
made a marvelous showing, and
several spectators were heard to remark that "Dek" was another Mosher
and then some. The rest of the team
played one of their best games of
the season.
Line-up: Dekema, Legg, Chalmers,
N'cwall, Mundle. Hyndman, Wright,
Dunlop, Wong,  Cooke anil  Latta.
The annual debate with Victoria
College wlil take place ln February
this year. This Is one of the major
events of the term and there is usually, in the debate with Victoria, a hard
fight. The subject will most likely
be: "Resolved that international disarmament is practicable at the
present time." Varsity will have the
affirmative at home and the negative away.
All Freshmen or Sophomores who
wish to try out for a position ou one
of the teams may do so on Thursday,
Jan. 19th, ln Arts 100. They may
take as their subject any aspect of
International  disarmament.
