•   FOR FOUR University
years now I have been     PUBLISHED TWICE WEEKLY BY THE PUBLICATIONS BOARD OF THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
exercising   the   democratic vou x^ VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1942
privilege assumed by almost -    '        ■   	
all undergraduates of denouncing the Administration
of U.B.C. at every opportunity and with a loud voice.
No. 31
BACKMAN 1$
Now, It seems, thia la no longer
nio—>iy.
For the people of the province
(who support the University—and
try to forget it) went ahead at the
last election and voted in quite a
sizable group of organised Administration-baiters, with high hopes
of reorganizing the entire educational framework.
And much louder and longer does
the voice of Dorothy Steeves echo
than mine at- yours could ever
aspire to.
HORROR
When an institution such as we
have at U.B.C. is faced by the
horror of modern reformers and
free thinkers who are out to set
•us (the students) free from the
bonds of a tyrannical Administrative body, it is time to act.
Gladstone had the right idea
when he said "Kill them with
kindness". I should think that the
august members of our ruling
body should have known by now
that when some legislative Lochin-
var tosses the gauntlet, the smartest move is to ignore it.
Instead, when Mrs. Steeves
launched her latest attack last
week, our learned chancellor, R.
fi. McKechnie "Popped oft."
Now R. E. has been chancelllng
around this University since 1918,
which is a long time, and he has
established himself as a liberal educator. But, he lost control of his
emotions last week when he is
purported to have said:
"What on earth do a bunch of
politicians know about higher education?"
NECK OUT
This, dear chancellor, Is sticking
your neck out.
Being of a versatile mind, we
eould probably write an exposition on just what 'a bunch of
politicians' don't know about higher education. However, sooner or
later the facts would catch up
with us.
In 1898, the short, stocky figure
of Dr. Robert E. McKechnie stood
in the Legislature at Victoria, Liberal member of the House from
Vancouver City. He stayed there
for two years.
Later he was president of the
executive council in the Semlin
cabinet. At many times since he
has held executive positions in
local Liberal political associations.
In other words, Dr. R. E. McKechnie, our chancellor, has been
somewhat of a politician In his day.
Just what do "a bunch of politicians know about higher education Dr. McKechnie? For as you
pointed out in the same interview,
we, at the University, have never
had any difficulty with the government because of that government's steadfast policy of ignoring
us.
FAILURE
Obviously, most of the members
of the present house are still in
favour of this policy, for Mrs.
Steeves" bill to change the administrative set-up didn't get past a
second reading.
Now, especially, is no time for
University men and women to go
around antagonizing politicians by
calling them stupid. At a time
when public support of higher education is being strained to the
limit, we need to exercise more
caution in dealing with their
"chosen representatives."
Dr. McKechnie's bedside manner
is slipping.
Money Matter
Defeats Hugh Hall By Over 200 Votee
To Give Science Second Major
Council Position
• ARVID V. BACKMAN, fourth year forestry student,
was elected Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society for the
1942-43 term yesterday, defeating his only opponent, Hugh
Hall, by a vote of 728 to 500. His election as running mate
of President-elect Rod Morris means the university will be
governed by an all-science executive next year.
_b«...^_v——i^—— Thanking the student body, half
of which exercised its franchise
in the election, for the support
given him, Backman refused to
give any definite promises for next
year.
" I refuse to comment on the
financial policies for next year,"
he said, "but maintain that a sane
policy can only be defined after
registration has been determined
In September."
Questioned about the payment
of the fees of President, Treasurer
and Editor next year, Backman
had nothing to say. Students will
recall the strong stand the treasurer-elect took last October at the
A.M.S. meeting which ratified the
plan of granting these three offices
their fees.
VERSATILE
"Bill", as he is commonly known,
is one of the most versatile and
colorful figures on the campus.
This year he was a member of the
Elections Committee which recommended changing the dates of election, a member of the War Aid
Council, an one of the successful
McGoun Cup debaters.
In previous years he was Senior
and C.U.P. editor of the Ubyssey
and active in the Parliamentary
Forum. During the summer, Bill

The bill provided for four members of the board to represent tho

Parent Teachers' Federation, The

Supporting the bill, Dr. J. J.
Gillis, Liberal, said, "There's

in the University. I'd like to see

Against the bill, H. G. Perry,
Liberal, said there already was

• WILLIAM PRIMROSE,
pronounced by musical
authorities to be the greatest
viola player in the world today, will appear in the Auditorium Monday, Feb. 23 at
12:30.
Mr. Primrose has recently completed his 50th recording, including duos and trios with Jaschn
Helfetz and Emmanuel Feudcrman.
Mr. Primrose began studying
music at the age of four, in Scotland. He played the violin until
1930, making his formal debut with
the Albert Hall Orchestra under
Sir Landon Ronald. In 1930, he
switched permanently to the viola,
joining the London quartet. In 1931
he gave his first solo performance
in Rio de Janeiro.
ALSO BOXER
AN AMATEUR boxer in student
days, he used boxing as "an out-
lot for a bad temper" in accordance with artistic temperament.
At his first exhibition performance
an eminent critic said, "There has
never existed a viola player with
such phenomenal technique."
Tickets will be available at the
A.M.S. office, and admission will
be ten cents with student passes.

Frosh Display Varied Reactions lo Campus Fraternity Question
By JOHN SCOTT
• AFTER ALMOST a full university year of observation, Freshmen and freshettes, potential fodder for the fraternities' annual
membership drives of next year
have made very definite opinions
of thc campus' 19 Greek fraternal
organizations, according to a sidewalk poll taken recently by the
Ubyssey.
Enthusiasm for the fraternity
idea was everywhere. Only a small
minority thought fraternities are
unnecessary.
USEFUL PURPOSE
Typical was the following comment made by a Freshman:   "Be
fore coming to Varsity, I was of
the opinion that fraternities were
only an excuse for snobbishness.
Now, however, I realize that fraternities serve a useful purpose in
creating a friendly rivalry and a
spirit of sociabilty among fellows
of the same ideals and aims."
But a Freshctte interviewed said
tho opposite: "Fraternities create
a bad feeling between some
people." One Freshman said he
was In favor of fraternities, but
wouldn't want to Join one, himself,
"1 think they're all right, though,"
he added.
CONNECTIONS
Most    Freshmen    interviewed
wanted to join a fraternity because
of the social connections, while
others thought of the business
connections. Said one Freshman:
"I want to join a fraternity because it ensures that you are
something more than just a student. You are more a part of the
university." Another said: "Varsity and fraternities just go together."
FRANK
One Freshette came forward
with an opinion which seemed to
be that of many other Freshettes
who had hesitated to say it: "Fraternities and sororities are not an
asset to the university and they
are undemocratic, but if you want
to have any fun at varsity you
have to join one. It seems a shame
to spend so much money on Institutions like fraternities in war
time.
"Fraternities also make an even
bigger distinction between those
who have money and those who
haven't," she said. She gave as
the basis of her opinion the fact
that Queen's .University has no
fraternities, yet. the spirit and
social activities are just as good
as U.BX.'s. "I can think of only
one possible reason for fraternities," she said, "they are good for
people  who  don't  make  friends
easily."
One Freshman was "yes and no"
in his opinion. "Yes", he said, "fraternities are a good thing because
they're the only source of sprit
around here, and no, because they
want to run the university." "If"
he added, fraternities are taking
too much time and money from
our war effort, they should be
banned."
PETTY RIVALRY
"Another Freshman against fraternities said: "I haven't much use
for some fraternity men as they
are inclined to be snobbish. Fraternities seem to be an artificial
set up. The members hold themselves aloof from the rest of the
university." Still another Freshman condemned fraternity men
for "their clannishness and their
petty rivalries."
One Freshman said: "The idea
of having fraternities on a campus
is very poor, but as it is seemingly impossible to prevent the students from organizing them, I
think that under proper control,
they can add a great deal to the
life of a university. Fraternity
people seem to be the ones behind
our war drives, but still the money
used In fraternity expenses could
go elsewhere."
One fraternity enthusiast said:
"They help you meet people and
give you connections. They should
be kept up in war time to organize
and in other ways help our war
effort."
SUMMARY
On the whole, the first year students seemed to be in favor of
fraternities, in spite of war conditions money restrictions and the
alleged undemocratic ways of fraternities. The Frosh didn't have a
preference for any one fraternity
but if their answers are any in-,
dication, rushing material will be
plentiful next year. Pag* Two

Dreaming In A Real World
With every passing week I become
more and more confused about what to
think of the cock-eyed world in which we
live. I cannot reconcile the peace and tranquility of our campus with the turmoil,
strife and suffering we hear is rampant in
other parts of the globe.
The peace and tranquility here are the
conditions we feel should prevail in all
countries. But war and hate and greed have
been forced upon so much of the globe that
they seem to have become the natural characteristics of humanity, and our idyllic campus life has become Uie thing which is unnatural and unreal.
More and more, higher education, particularly in the liberal arts- department,
seems useless and futile. It seems so because it cannot be fitted into the picture of
the world today in any shape of form. Pr<j-
fessors, seemingly oblivious of and unattached to the real world, who blandly lecture
about supremely profound but utterly useless subjects and who assign boring essay
topics, add to the growing confusion. The
question of the merits of arts courses in
wartime gets bigger and bigger, and as the
weeks fly by the pendulum seems to swing
farther and farther away from the side which
supports them.
One grows very cynical when one lets
his mind try to penetrate the future. Short
years ago we looked forward to the day we
would graduate from university with a degree to help us make our place in the world.
We looked forward to becoming established
in our chosen profession, marrying and enjoying life.
Now we look forward to joining the air-
force, navy or army. And we certainly don't
need a university degree to do that.
Maybe it is a good thing two science-
men were elected to the two top positions
in student government for next year. After
all, we do need engineers to carry on the
war. It is a vicious circle—this training men
in the ways of the great god Science, that
they may kill other men and so make the
world safe for their children. The more we
try to rationalize, the more confusing it becomes.
A.T.P.
rflcultv r orunri   *By Aie*ander m**i°w
• "DESCARTES," wrote a student on an
examination paper, "was a man subject
to ideas." Now, it seems reasonable to say
that Descartes was not an exception in this
respect, and that all reflective people find
themselves in the same sad predicament. In
fact, this old malady has been afflicting mankind ever since the dim beginnings of human civilization, and it was so prevalent in
ancient Greece that the Greeks invented a
word for it, namely philosophy.
Of course, at present philosophy does
not any longer have the all inclusive meaning it had in the ancient world. In the
course of history some parts of philosophy
broke off from the common stem of philosophy and developed into special sciences,
and the mother of all the sciences has been
left holding the bag, so to say, containing
some of the most important perennial human problems not as yet suitable for scientific specialization. Whether or not we shall
ever come to a more integrated intellectual
life, such for instance as the Greeks had,
nobody, of course, can tell for certain.
Investigation
The recent investigations into the
foundations of mathematics and physics lead
some scientists to take a more general or
philosophic interest in their work, and that
suggests the possibility of science becoming
more philosophical. And, on the other hand,
in philosophy, too, there appeared a movement which is of interest not only to the
professional philosophers but also to scientists and even to the so-called general public,
and which, therefore, is also a step in the
direction of the unification of intellectual
life.
This philosophic movement is based on
investigation of the role of symbolism in
human thought, or what a wit described as
the study of the meaning of meaning. In
more prosaic terms it is called a theory of
signs, or, if one prefers a more learned and
barbarous term, semiotic.
Semiotic
Semiotic is not, of course, a study of any
particular languages—that is the business of
linguistics. Semiotic investigates only the
general requirements of correct symbolism
or language. All our thinking, apart from
direct awareness of immediate sensations,
depends upon signs and systems of signs;
the human mind is inseparable from the
functioning of signs spoken, written or imagined. And semiotic is a study of the functioning of signs generally. We cannot deal
with this rather difficult, complicated, and
as yet not well developed subject in detail,
but I will mention here some interesting
implications of it.
It is obvious, for example, that before
answering a question we must know its
meaning. But we often overlook the fact
that the process of formulating a question
already involves on our part an organization
of the material we are dealing with, and
thus to some extent predetermines beforehand the form of any possible answer. The
right formulation of a question is, therefore,
the first prerequisite for getting a good
answer.
Dickens
A certain proclamation, we read in
Dickens, "rendered Mr. Inspector additionally studious, and caused him to stand meditating on river-stairs and causeways, and go
kirking about in boats, putting this and that
together. But, according to the success with
which you put this and that together, you
get a woman and a fish apart, or a mermaid
in combination." Mr. Inspector, you see,
was putting questions to the river, and the
answers he could expect depended on the
ways he would formulate his questions. A
question, for instance, concerning the whereabouts of a mermaid would not be a good
question, since there are no mermaids; such
a question would reflect an unrealistic attitude towards the world on the part of Mr.
Inspector, and one should hardly expect a
satisfactory answer to jt.
It is only if we formulate our question
well that we may be entitled to expect a
satisfactory answer. And it is not only such
relatively simple problems of meaning as
raised by the question, "Have you stopped
beating your wife", that lead to the analysis
of meaning, but all scientific and philosophical issues require it.
Warp and Woof
What may be somewhat disconcerting
about this study of symbolism is that it
strengthens the view, upheld by many philosophers on other grounds, that the commonly held sharp line of distinction between
language and the world, theory and fact,
is illusory. Our language, it seems, is the
very warp and woof of our world, and there
is really no intelligible world for us except
as we understand it through language. Language, in a wide sense of the word, is the
activity in which we systematically use
some parts of our experience to represent
according to some rules certain other parts;
in this way we interrelate and interpret our
sense experience and thus construct a systematic outlook on the world.
Until so interpreted and interrelated,
our direct sense experience, is chaotic and
strictly speaking is not a world at all. And,
Since our language is to a great extent of
our own making, the world, too, is very
largely what we can make of it! As a contemporary philosopher expressed it, "The
limits of my language mean the limits of
my world." Our view of the world is not a
mechanical reproduction or a picture of an
external world fixed once and for all, but
is rather our own construction.
This movement in philosophy is, of
cpurse, not a new one; it merely came to a
relative prominence lately. Philosophy, as
any human enterprise, is not entirely free
of fashions, and this is but one of the recent
ones. And as with most intellectual fashions, this one had its origin in ancient
Greece. In fact, Socrates was one of the
first practitioners, in the pursuit of the clarity of meaning, and he practised it vigorously and rather too successfully for his
own good.
Plato
I wish to conclude with a passage from
Plato, illustrating the process of inquiry as
practised in Socrates' time, a process which
could with profit be practised in our own or
any other time. "They cross-examine a
man's words, when he thinks he is saying
something and is really saying nothing, and
easily convict him of inconsistencies in his
opinions. . . He, seeing this, is angry with
himself, and grows gentle towards others,
and thus is entirely delivered from great
prejudices and harsh notions, in a way which
is most amusing to the hearer, and produces
the most lasting good effect on the person
who is the subject of the operation ... he
must be purged of his prejudices first and
made to think that he knows only what he
knows, and no more."

the special midweek A.M.S.
meeting which featured the week

motion urging Council to take
steps to regain control of the rentals of the buildings was passed

developed into a clash of personalities as Evan apRoberts, Johnny
Brynelson, and Owen Sheffield
attacked council upholders Bob
Bonner, Arthur Fouks, and President Harry Lumsden. . . Out of
this came amusing remarks which
will probably be remembered
longer than the business at hand.
For example: Sheffield declared
emphatically "I am very angry;"
Brynelson growled "That's the
whole sordid story;" and apRoberts mocked "I am extremely
amused, Mr. Fouks." . . . Almost
neglected in all this row was
spring which sprung a month
early with the first crocus . . . Also
sidetracked were more pamphlets
distributed by the Young Communist League charging that the
C.O.T.C. was a fascist organization.

• THE UNIVERSITY boasts a
collection of Canadian stamps
whose rarity is matched only by
the rarity of anyone noticing it.
It was started over twelve years
ago by the former Registrar, Stanley W. Matthews, who was himself
Friday, February 13, 1942,
g^.
a philatelist. Approval was gained
from the Board of Governors to
purchase, on issue, mint copies of
all new Canadian stamps.
DONATIONS
The collection, which is confined
to Canadian stamps or stamps from
the provinces, has been enlarged
through donations of earlier stamps.
Notable amongst donations are
those of Dr. J. A. Pearce of the
Astrophysical Observatory at Saan-
ich and Mr. Matthews.
Although incomplete in many respects, especially in the earlier issues and in stamps of British Columbia and Vancouver Island, the
collection lias become valuable
since  its inauguration.

After Some
Time
By'DORWIN BAIRD
• A RECENT Ubyssey notes the
fact that the provincial legislators, meeting in conference ia
Victoria have had their annual
"go" at the university, with the
usual exchange of charges and
counter-charges. All of which,
notes the Ubyssey, is not unusual.
Of course there have been plenty of charges laid against this institution that are well deserved.
Trouble is, though, that the best
attacks seldom get the headlines.
If anyone attacked the university
or the government, for not making
the place big enough or all-inclusive enough, the publicity
would be notable for its absence.
These periodic legislative blitzes
aimed at higher education do their
job. If the university were left
alone to go on its own way —
things would eventually reach a
pretty mess. It is the fact that the
place is open to atack — plus tho
fact that the, attackers will get
good notices, that keeps the board
and faculty on their toes.
That's democracy.
• THE CURRENT Victory Loan
is likely to by-pass the university, for the good reason that most
students haven't got a spare 150
lying around in their pockets. If
I know university pockets, a spare
fifty cents would be just as hard
to find.
Nevertheless the idea of investing in Canada should appeal to
university students. They are so
used to "giving" through the Red
Cross and so on, that the prospect
of making a sound, interest-bearing investment should be attractive.
In relation to the student budget — Victory Bonds are expensive. War Savings stamps and
certificates are not.
Maybe the Students' Council of
1942 could buy a sizeable Victory
Bond and deed it to the student
body of 1952 — a reminder to
those future students that there
was a war, and that it was an expensive one.
• EVERY NOW AND THEN the
past comes back and hits you:
A Vancouver Institute lecture
where a professor pointed out (in
1938) that the "disastrous" China
war would bankrupt Japan in another two years . . . the attempt
by some members of the Parliamentary Forum to give up inter-
university debating because U.B.C.
never made a good showing . . .
the Musical Society cast that appeared in shows year after year
around 1936-7-8. and was noted
for a strange and universal lac::
of sobriety on closing nights . . ,
the Ubyssey party in la Fonda
only a year and a half ago when
the ni&ht spot couldn't tane it an J
&■> burned down a week sr so later
. . . and the story of that same
party, a story that can be told in
about five years, about the student
who found herself in a strange
adventure just because her cup
of coffee was cold . . . and the
best of all visiting lecturers —
Stephen Leacock.
• AN EDITORIAL In these pages
last Friday discussed ARP of-
fairs on the campus, under the
general theme of, it CAN happen
here. The idea was put forward
that some sort of student organiz-
ization should be formed to take
over.
U.B.C. could give an example to
other nearby areas by an efficient
approach to this problem. It is not
necessary to point out that if an
air raid should ever occur here,
the campus Is in a position to get
properly smacked. It is in a danger area.
An energetic group of students
— perhaps those unfit for marching service — could do a lot for
their university by getting together regularly to plan ARP matters.
A test alert or so would help, and
some form of education in the
elementary rudiments of what to
do when the bombers come would
place the campus in a better position to come through any attack
with a minimum loss.
An earnest, unspectacular approach to the job would do a lot
of good for U.B.C. public relations
as well.

Sullivan Nearly Left Gilbert Without Music For "Yeomen" Operetta
Musical Society Stage
Show Feb. 25-28
These Lovely Boys
•   BACK OF "Yeomen of the Guard", which will be produced by the Musical Society February 25 to 28, lies one
of the more interesting origins of the Gilbert and Sullivan
operettas.
William   S.   Gilbert,   creator  of       _—•______
words and plot, thought the work
his best and poked enthusiastic*
ally about the Tower of London
getting atmosphere material. Ho
had conceived the story, which h
sub-titled "A Merryman and Hit
Maid" in 1887, but when the time
came for his partner Arthur Sullivan to create the accompanying
music, Sullivan had decided to devote his time wholly to serious
music.
Gilbert eventually prevailed upon him to do the music, vhlch he
polished off in a matter of eight
weeks by jotting down a few bars
any time and place he had an
idea.  '
With trepidation lasting until the
first-act duet "Heigh Day" received three encores, they finally
presented it at the Savoy in London, October 3, 1888. It ran continuously for two years, and has been
successful whenever staged since.
UNIQUE
Unique notes to the production
is the number "I Have a Song To
Sing O", which for the only time
during their partnership Gilbert
wrote both words AND music.
This opera is the one more serious work in the Gilbert and Sullivan series. The authors have de-

serted satire and they have given
us' a human and a moving story,
improbable In some of its detail
but nearer probability than most
of the plots. It is unlike anything
else they did, more delicate in its
sentiment more artistic and gracious in its appeal. There is humour
in it, but there is also a touch of
sadness.
SETTING
The scene is Tower Green, the
period is the Tudor period, and
the atmosphere is one of old Mer-
rie England.
Jack Point is one of tne most
interesting figures in the opera.
He is a strolling player — a merry-
man of infinite wit — working the
fairs in company wth Elsie May-
nard. For the sake of one hundred
crpwns, he allows the girl to be
married blindfolded to the condemned Colonel Fairfax. In an
hour's time that undaunted soldier
is to be beheaded and she will regain her liberty. Sergeant Meryll
and his daughter Phoebe, meanwhile, secure the prisoner's release by surreptitiously obtaining
the keys from the dismal jailor,
Wilfred Shadbolt. Jack Point real-
izes too late his own love for Elsie
Maynard. The girl has found happiness in the arms of her bridegroom in the strange adventure on
Tower Green. Fate has cheated
th jester and he falls insensible,
a tragic figure in motley, from
heartbroken grief.
Such is the plot of "Yeomen of
the Guard" and with Musical Society to give it life, the Tower
Grean will live again in the University Theatre.

• THERE WILL be no fashion
show this spring. That was thc
verdict reached this week at a
special meeting of the W.U.S. executive in charge. They decided
that it would be no use putting
on the chow unless enougn tickets
could be sold to make the venture
pay. Because there's to be many
fashion shows and war functions
scheduled in Vancouver for March
sponsored by larger groups,
enough tickets could not be sold.
It was decided that the profits
from the show would not repay
the effort put forth by ine models
and executive, especiaffy when examinations are so near.
The girls wished to make the
first attempt of this kind a success so that future ventures would
not have to overcome the poor
publicity of an initial flop.
The executives wish to thank
the many girls who turned out
and remind them that a small disappointment now is better than
a big one later it the show had
been a failure.

C. E. Dolman, studied the methods
used in washing and cleaning utensils in the kitchen and inspected
samples of food, The caf was gone
over with a fine tooth comb and
many an unfortunate parasite was
caught unaware.
RESULTS
"The results, said Dr. Dolman,
"were very satisfactory on the
whole, considering the rate of
turnover, but one or two minor
points, which might be criticized,
were noted."
Dr. Dolman added that the survey would help, chiefly, to bring
about improvement In the future.
"The students, themselves, promote
much of the unhealthful atmos
phere by leaving Utter around,"
he said.
FALLACY
Undergraduate idiosyncracy uncovered by the student Dr. Kil-
dares was the fact that most students refuse to eat on wet plates,
which in reality are much more
sanitary than plates dried by
towels. The caf, however, gets
around this by using a hot air
drier which dries and yet keeps
the plates sanitary.
Bacteriology 10, composed of
students in their senior year,
studies pathology of infection and
the experiment was conducted to
give the students first hand experience in the subject.

Soccer men Cinch 2nd Place With Win Wednesday
Wallace, Roach Pep
Team to 1-0 Victory
Over Woodward XI.
By BILL GALT
•   PLAYING ONE of their worst games of the year, the
Varsity soccer eleven was lucky enough to eke out a
1-0 win over a weak Woodsonla entry in thetr Wednesday
contest at the Cambie Street plot.
Varsity's reshuffled team was seriously hit by the recent loss of Doug 'Toodie' Todd, and the other losses of Norm
Thompson, Stu Roach, and Al Todd. Of these Roach has
returned but the others are still away.
The students started off at a very
fast pace, and very nearly scored
on a long shot by Fred Sasaki in
the first scuffle after the starting
whistle. However after their first
sprint the boys slackened off, mis-
kicked, and generally played a
rather inferior brand of soccer.
In spite of several opportunities,
the poor passing attack of the forwards, who were playing for the
first time in that position was
completely incapable of penetrating the weak defense of the Woodsonla team to score, and the first
half ended scoreless.
The second half was merely a
repitltion of the first. Varsity a-
gain started off well, but this time,
Rookie Norm Tupper seized his
opportunity to place Varsity ahead
with a lovely goal, one of the few
redeeming features of an otherwise
dull game.
Tupper, however spoiled his
good day, a few minutes lated by
failing to capitalize on a set-up,
and so the score remained at 1-0
for the remainder of the slow game.
The team, however had a good
excuse for their ragged display,
it had been completely reshuffled
and many players wore playing
positions completely new to them.
The new forward combination of
Quan Louie, Fred Sasaki, and,
Norm Tupper looked aa though It
might develop Into a real scoring
threat, but much more co-ordination must be acquired before their
potential power materializes.
A new blow again has fallen on
the ill-fated soccer club. Next
weak will mark the first time In
over ten years that a Vanity soccer team will take the field without at least one Todd playing. Stu,
the youngest of the four brothers
played his last game on Wednes.
day, and will leave here for Toronto this week end.

will definitely be run off; probably on Friday night, Feb* 20,
As the evening Is planned now,
there will be a hockey game, and
then the forum will be turned over
to those students who wish to
skate. Because this is to be a part
of the I.S.S. campaign, there will
be a very slight "cover charge,"
which will be turned over to tb»

The main event of the evenln/j
is a hockey match to be stage:!
probably between the Varsity puck
pushers and the Vancouver Junior
Lions. Complete details concerning the line-up of the team, tho
practice that they have had, and
their chances of winning have not
been given out. But upon being
questioned, John Moxon, one of the
strong men of the squad said with
assurance, "The team should win

The time of the game, the time
for student skating, that "cover

Dominoes Potent Threat
To Bird Playoff Hopes
•   VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS will make their last attempt to gain sole possession of third slot in the Inter-
City Basketball standings when they tackle the Victoria Dominoes at the V.A.C. gym on Saturday night at 7:45.
In pouches, packages and Vz lb. tins.
If Varsity can cop this contest
they will end up two points ahead
of Stacy's and gain the right to
meet the loser of the Tooke-Shore
clash, who are playing on the second half of the double bill this
week end.
At the present Varsity and the
Shoemen are in a tie for the third
position when the students rallied
in overtime to down Stacy's last
Saturday night. These two teams
have both won two games this
season, two victories over each
other but have not been able to
down any of the other squads.
Varsity met the Dominoes once
before this season at the Island
City and suffered u 38-25 defeat.
The students will be out to win
this game with so much at stake.
Should the Birds drop the game
to the Dominoes a playoff win be
forced to decide the final playoff
position. Stacy's have . finished
their schedule and their fate will
await on the verdict of Saturday
night's clash.
Should a playoff be forced between the students and the Shoe-
men the game will have to be
played sometime during the next
week, maybe on Wednesday at the
Varsity gym so that the semi-finals
will be able to start the following
Saturday.

When Maury coyly asks this
noble lad where he's been, the
poor fellow sums up his last
breath, indistinctly utters, "Hive
bin running de Coss Cuntry," and
promptly collapses on the nearest
bench.
POINTS ALLOTTED
At the sports meeting or. Tuesday, Maury gave out the points
for the meet. Each frat will get
10 points for every man entered
np to 5 men—that is, a possible of
SO points. While, It is still Indefinite, it is probable that points
will be given to everybody that
crosses the line on a sliding scale.
The scores will be high, round
about 200 points for the winning
team, on down..
Asked why the point, system. Is
so high, Maury said. "Any man
who finishes this race, should flat
plenty of points; the Cross Country Is anything but a picnic."
Every fraternity will appoint one
man to act as a station in, order
to spot cribbing on the turns and
to see that no one gets lost or
starts chasing hot blondes.
