Brynelsen Urges Frosh To Uphold
Achievements Of Former Students
Ardy Beaumont Also Speaks To Freshmen
At Cairn Ceremony
"If you are called upon to perform some service for the
Alma Mater Society, remember your predecessors, and do your
duty." With these words Bernard Brynelsen brought to a close
the cairn ceremony Tuesday at noon. To an audience of 250
freshmen, he briefly outlined the history of the founding of the
unpiversity, starting from the Act of 1890. This was followed
by the story of the great campaign.
"In 1S23, tired of waiting for gov-4>"
ernment action,   the   students   took
matters into their own hands, and
started the great campaign—and it
was a great campaign, for they
achieved their objective.
"They obtained sixty-five thousand
signatures, thereby forcing the government to take action. Work was
again commenced on the buildings
which had been started in 1914."
"When finally the buildings were
completed, the students made a triumphal march from the Fairview
'shacks'. Each student bore a stone.
Those stones are in this cairn. Each
of those stones rymbolizes an unselfish student, who gave his utmost. In
future, if you arc called upon to perform a service, remember the Cairn
—and let it be an incentive to you.
Show those who have gone before
you that that spirit still lives."
Ardy Beaumont spoke briefly along
the same lines, after which she
turned her attention to matters lying
in the future.
"A special manifestation of the
trust placed in us by our graduates
is the Womens' Union Building Fund.
This has now reached the $10,000
mark. We hope next year to start a
drive to bring it to its objective. We
hope that you will follow the graduates who have gone before you in
aiding to attain this objective. These
studenls have done the hardest part
—made a beginning—and have handed it on to us. It is up to u* ta finish it."
Date Bureaus At
* * *
Willowy Blondes
« • •
Man.,  Toronto
Two Canadian Universities have
simultaneously launched "Date Bureaus." From the Manitoban comes
this tit-bit of imagination:
'"Hello I'd like to date up a willowy ash-blond about five-foot-six for
next Saturday night.'
'I think we can accomodate you.
Any other specifications?'
'No, as long as she's beautiful, ash-
blond ond willowy that's all I want.
She's got to be willowy though, something along the lines of Greta Garbo.'
'You wouldn't like someone along
the lines of May West?'
'No, Garbo 3uif. me. I'll pick her
up at 8:45'."
At the University of Toronto where
the scheme has been properly aged
in wood for a year, they've gone a
step ahead. Dole registration forms
have been published and a fee of ten
cents is charged. Among the striking questions asked aro these —
weight? color of hair, and would you
be willing to share expenses for the
1st date'.'
Now you see why thc swan-song
of the verdant finish naturally changes
from "Am I blue'  to "Am I green."

Will Feature
Modern Choir
The organization of a Glee Club is
the principal undertaking of the
Musical Society for the forthcoming
term. Under the direction of Mr. C.
Haydn Williams new members and
old will be given an opportunity to
study modern choir music.
Since its inception due to the increasing activity of the members this
cultural society has steadily progressed. During the past six years
a Gilbert and Sullivan opera, such as
the "Mikado',, has been produced in
the spring ter.n. Such an undertaking requires not only vocal and instrumental ability but also technical
knowledge. Back-stage work on
scenery, costumes, make-up, advertising and producing must be carried
on efficiently and provides excellent
experience for those participating.
Very inters.stinp too are the noon-
hour recitals held in the Auditorium
every ti.ree weeks. Generally these

delightfully interpret the great masters. But here also student talent is
encouraged -'specially that of high
The Society welcomes everyone interested in music. However, those
desirous of participating in opera or
choir work are required to try-out
before the director. The purpose of
these try-outs is two-fold: first, to
discover the performer's vocal range,
secondly his ability—is he suited to
solo, chorus or recital work.
To assist the Musical Director, the
Faculty members, Dr. W. L. MacDonald and Professor Walter Gage,
give liberally cf their time. They
render invaluable service by their
criticisms and encouragement. Newcomers are urj'id to consult them at
any time. The membership fee is
Monday Set For
Club Try*Outs
Try-outs for membership in the
Players' Club, most prosperous student organization on the campus, will
be held on the stage of the Auditorium Monday, when a large number of
new members will be admitted.
From almost lilt) prospective applicants, openings are available in the
club for only thirty-five. Men will
likely stand the best chance of obtaining admission, since the number
of male applicants is relatively small,
Fourteen will be compelled to repeat the trial scene twice in order to
supply partners for the women who
are trying to obtain admission.
The tiy-out parts have been cho&en
from the play, 'A School for Scandal," by Sheridan. Rumours that the
system of try-outs and the trial scene
would be changed so that men would
be paired together proved incorrect,
and it was decided that men would
run through Ihe scene with women
The try-outs will be judged by a
committee composed of leading members of the Pl.iyvrs' Club and a number of professors interested in the
production of the legitimate drama on
the campus.

Pep Meeting, the purpose of which
is to induce the students to turn out
and watch the boys at Brockton Point

Ex-Magee in their first game of the
Gordie Diamond and his Columbians will supply the music. This is
an up-and-coming orchestra just
breaking into the eye of the general
public. A singer will be featured
with the band.
The tram will be introduced either
by Captain Harry Pearson or by
Coach Dobbie. It is uncertain whether
speeches will be a part of the program, but the Pep Club has stated
that there will be yelling.
Freshmen, as usual, will occupy the
front rows of the Auditorium, where
they will have an excellent chance
to become acquainted with the team,
as well as with the sophomores' lunch
The Pep Club has also announced
that the Frosh Revue, or "Follies
Freshaires" will take place on Thursday, Oct. 10, and that another pep
meeting, this time for the American
Football team, will take place on the
19th. Mart Kenney is mentioned as
a possibility for this latter fixture.
Lex McKillop was elected President of the Education Class at the
first meeting on Tuesday. The class
also decided to hold a dance at an
early date.
Other officers elected include: Hon.
Pres., Professor Black; Vice-Pres.,

Exchange Needs
Many More Books
The demand for books at the Book
Exchange still exceeds the supply,
according to a report from Tom
Vance, this year's manager. In other
words students who have old text
books lying i.bout at home are assured ci a ready sale if they wish
to dispose of them.
Payments on exchange vouchers
will be made as soon as possible,
probably in thivie or four weeks. The
Exchange will remain open a few
weeks longer and will re-open again
at the beginning of next term. Students wishing to sell second term
books may bring them in now and
the management will hold them over
till next term.
The Book Exchange is run under
the supervision' of the Alma Mater
Society for tha benefit of the students. A fair price for all books required is assured.
Undergrad Nurses
Hold First Meeting
The first meeting of the Nursing
Undergraduate Society was held
Wednesday evening at the New Nurses' Home of the Vancouver General
Hospital. Miss Grey, head of the
University nurses and Miss Fairly,
Superintendent of Nurses at the Hospital, welcomed the freshette nurses.
The representatives of the freshette
class were elected and the meeting
discussed plans for the coming season. At the close of the business
session a short social period was enjoyed.
The attention of students bringing
cars to tha University is drawn to
the fact that the speed regulations in
the University area will be strictly
enforced by tho Provincial Police. No
further warning will  be issued.

Frosh Hold Snake Parade Through
Streets, Theatres To Chinatown
Several Hundred Frosh Kept In Check By
Police and Pep Club
For almost two hours Wednesday evening, several hundred
freshmen threaded a tortuous way through the downtown
area, back and forth, filling the air with the chant: "U! U!
U.B.C.!", in snake parade formation.

Three hundred and twenty, to be
exact, were tl.e number who attended, a coodly share of these signing
up at the respective booths for the
various activities. Badminton seemed
to be one of tbe most popular sports
while many joined the Famous for

an artistic touch by joining the Art
Club. The appropriately decorated
table was presided over by Dean Bollert and groups of new-comers and
seniors saw to it that everyone enjoyed herself.—M. N.
they decided on their itlneary, and
warmed up with a preliminary song
and yell practice. At 8:20, they
formed a line, and swung up Duns-
muir St. to Seymour. Their first stop
was the Strand Theatre. This waa
followed by a visit to the Capitol,
after which the Orpheum received tha
attention of the greensters.
Invade Hotels
Turning up to Granville, the Una
proceeded to Robson, where a circle
was formed. After rendering a "skyrocket", they weaved their way to
the Hotel Vancouver, emerging on
Georgia St., and going on to the Hotel
Georgia. Returning to Granville, the
line circled at the intersection, and
another "skyrocket" split the air.
The parade, with a few delays, went
on down Granville to Hastings, where
it turned, and headed west. Thence,
they weaved through the B. C. Electric Station, and up Carroll St., heading for Chinatown.
Chinatown Causes Comment
The Orient Theatre was the next
stop, the ingress of the line causing
a number of comments couched in
oriental tongues.
Emerging in the alley, the parade
crossed to Hastings where the Royal
Theatre was visited. At Pender and
Main a circle was formed, and the
parade broke up to a final "skyrocket."
Pep Club Heroes
A few of the more ebullient spirits
had different ideas, and started to
form a new line. They had evidently
liked it so much that they wanted to
do it again. Pep Club members hurried to the spot, and induced the boys
to go home.
Though this was quite enough for
the majority, a few hardy souls had
clad themselves in pajamas, and were
forced to sneak up alleys, and to try
to hide behind others until they returned to their car. Mass laughter,
despite their efforts, followed them
all the way.
Phrateres Favor
Cafeteria Table
To the delight of. the new executive which tooK the platform at the
first All-Phrateres meeting of this
year on Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Arts
100, a large number of green hats
were in evidence as well as a large
number of the former members.
Mary McGeer, past president, gave
a farewell speech before handing
over the chair to the new president,
Audrey Honvood, who after telling
of the activities of the organization
last year, suggested that a Cookie
Party b* held in the gym on Oct.
16 from 3:30 to 5:00. This suggestion
met with instant approval.
It wis then mentioned that Phrateres might have a table in the Caf.,
so that new members might have the
opportunity of meeting other Phra-
terians and at which a number of
sorority women also offered to sit. It
was felt that m this way also many
freshettes wh:> h.ive not had the opportunity to meet other women students would be saved from eating
their lunch ia solitary confinement.
The meeting closed on a friendly
note when Dean Bollert had expressed the importance of true friendship   in  campus  life.
Medical Appointment
Due to the changes in dates
of the Initiation activities announced by the Students'
Council there will be no medical examinations for men on
October 9 and 10.

It wasn't a very exciting parade, he said.
The cops had been tipped off, and so the pep
boys who led it palled up with them, and the
cops held up traffic while the snake entered
some theatres and things. Some of the theatres turned up their lights, even. Pretty tame,
he thought.
Our thoughts turn idly to a parade of some
months back. He wouldn't have called that
one tame. It was engaged in by certain unemployed, and was favored by the police with
attention quite as keen as, if less decorous than,
that afforded ours. This other parade was not
the result of mere exuberance on the part of
publicly educated youths, but of misguided ignorance on the part of unprivileged unemployed. Well, that parade, after marching
quietly about the streets, entered a department
store and, still in formation, came to a stop.
We don't know if this constitutes a more heinous offence than does keeping moving through
five or six theatres, though beyond a doubt
these paraders looked very heinous indeed,
clothed so cheaply and in such an expensive
At any rate, the police decided to "let 'em
have it", and approaching the column of men,
biffed the end two on the head with a handy
gadget designed for such service. These gentlemen collapsed into the outstretched arms of
the law, and were carried to the patrol wagon
outside. Then the next two in line received
a similar attention. And at this point the
gathering, acting on a very understandable impulse of self preservation, broke ranks and
started a general melee.
There may be a political moral to this, but
we are not muchly interested: our interests are
really humanistic. That is why we give you
an eye-witness account and not any report
printed in the papers—all of which have their
political creeds, or civic influence, or interfering advertisers to consider.
The point we wish to make is this, and we
apologize for the obvious way we have approached it: Vancouver is not very tolerant of
mild public nuisances, and it is only because
we happen to be a privileged set instead of social outcasts that we are humored when we
choose to paint   the town red,   If the jittery
Today the discussion centres around political and economic problems, put in a new and
revealing light. Also I swing from the purely
personal "I" to "we," but not an editorial "we."
It just means that this department has found
an invaluable new assistant, Persephone Coolidge, more of whom anon.
Perhaps even in your splendid isolation you
are conscious of a looming election. Up in
these parts people take their elections neat and
seriously. Kootenay East is a notorious political riding for funny little ways.
An articulate friend of mine remarked recently, "Scratch a politician, and you'll find a
horse-trader. Scratch a little further and you
may find part of the horse." It doesn't do for
me to subscribe to this, but I give it to you as
a bon mot.
You see, I'm working for the Liberal Party
as stenographer at the central committee
rooms. R. R. Bruce is our candidate, ex-
Lieutenant Governor of B.C. and an old-timer
of long standing in the mining industry here.
The mine with which he had to do is a silver
lead producer known as the Paradise. It's at
a tremendously high altitude and cats, when
taken there, go violently nuts from the rarifi-
cation. The effect on them is like touching a
match to a sky-rocket.
Ssssssssss, sputter sputter, pop, and there
the cat isn't.
Our chief opponent is Hon. H. H. Stevens.
Mr. Stevens is very astute, to wit:
On a westward trip across Canada during
the March to Ottawa, he went to visit various
groups of the On-to-Ottawa-ers. His account
of them runs something like this:
"I would go into the camp and ask if I could
shake hands with some of the marchers. The
leaders immediately became apprehensive lest
they would begin to talk, and to a steady
stream of advice and orders not to talk, I would
go about shaking hands.
"And the significant fact is that the men all
had hard horny hands, while the leaders' palms
were soft and flabby."
I've always had a powerful respect for Mr.
Stevens' abilities, but that strikes me as being
unusually intelligent!
For a fortnight after Mr. Stevens arrived
in the district I wore coppers inside my gloves
on the off chance I might be thrust into a hand
shaking position. But I've spent the pennies
now and that brings us to the economic section
of the column.
I've bought a car.
But it isn't all paid for yet.
It got all tied up and bound and gagged in
red tape in the process. First I found the car.
Then I tried to get a license.
"No license," said the Policeman, "till you
get insurance."
"How can you insure a car that you haven't
got yet?" said the insurance man.
"How can you buy a car if you haven't a
license?" said the salesman.
It took a certain amount of sophism to
swing it, but it's almost swung now, and I ex-

Keep off Grass!
Editor,   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
He came rushing into the Pub Office in a great flurry, banged his
fist on the desic and shouted, "Somebody write an editorial telling those
freshmen to kocp off the grass!" Nobody took thc slightest notice of him:
the co-ed went on powdering her
nose, the typewriter banged out its
jargon for the Thursday edition, and
the latest recruit to the writers' ranks
pushed another sandwich into his
mouth. "Write a letter about it," ventured someone over in the corner so
that is exactly what I am doing.
Do the freshmen realize that it has
taken almost right years for the grass
to arrive at its present state? Had
they seen it when it was hay or when
it was uncared for, they would understand the p.ide with which we
view the greensward as it is today.
The cement sidewalks are still adequate to hold til the traffic going
to and from the Library and the
pipe railings are there for the express purpose cf showing the students that they are not supposed to
"cut off" the corners.
Freshmen! This will be your scholastic home for the next four years,
and it i'i up tc you to see that it
is kept in the best of condition. For
the sake of a few seconds, don't spoil
the grasf. which adds so much to
the appearance of the campus and
when you are seniors you will be
proud of the faci that while you were
mere freshmen you did your bit to
retain and Improve the beauty of
your University.

Campus Fairy Tales
As Inbad the Failer was reclining
upon his luxurious couch in the
cafeteria, he heard a poor Freshman
in the quad say. "Men are not rewarded according to their merit. I
have worked harder than Inbad, and
yet he consumes delicacies of all
kinds in the cafeteria, while I must
eat my bread .'nd water in the common room."
Inbad was rroved by the shoeblack's complaint, and invited him to
come in and listen to the stories of
his adventures ond trials.
"Perhaps when you have heard by
what sufferings I won my position,
you will be more content with your
lot In life. Now you are forced to
give up your went to me, when there
is no other sent available, but I have
served long for my privilege."
"Look at my white hair and worn
face! I seem an old man, while verily I am no more than two years
older than you. But how young and
strong I was when first I came to
this accursed place. Soon after I
came hither '. was made to wear
emerald apparel, and paint my nails
with green. Half dead from mortification, I had my trousers taken away
from me in the presence of amny
strange  females.    In  my  undergar
ments I was tossed into a raging
stream, yonder across the mall. My
head was shaven, and mine apparel
rent. I crept into the neighboring
castle to die, but there I met a
strange old man, who made signs to
me to come to him. He grasped me
by the throat, dragged me into his
lair, cursed loud and long at me, and
cancelled my l'brary card.
I went into a huge amphitheatre to
write ar examination, and on entering I saw a symbolic bird . . . which
is called by B.AC.'s the goose. The
bird was symbolic, for when I found
my mark, there it was on ths top of
the paper ... a huge GOOSE EGG.
I was affrighted and fell upon the
ground, beseeching Allah to deliver
me from this frightful ministration of
fate. But repeatedly it has followed
me throughout every examination. I
am cursed of heaven, and would
rather be the freshman who licketh
the crumbs from my table, or who
polisheth my footgear, to to continue
in this unfortunate state."
Having spoken thus, he sighed
deeply, and absent-mindedly embraced the fair houri who waited
upon his table.
Affrighted, the Freshman fled,
praying hia sods to saw him from a
similar curse.

At The One Standard Price
Travelling salesman, logger, seaman, bank clerk, and publicity agent
for a theatrical company were some
of the occupations that engaged John
R. Gould, better known as Jay, during the six years he spent "seeing the
world" before ho started University.
Gould, now President of the Literary
and Scientific Executive, is noted as
one of the most active students on
the U.B.C. campus.
Born in Vancouver, he was educated at Vernon Preparatory School
and King George High. He is intending to go into lew eventually.
During the time he was wandering
over the map, Jay spent a year and
a half at sea. Other short periods
were spent ia a bank, a brokerage
office, and a logging camp. Although
he declines to comment, it is probably not far wrong to say that the
time spent as & travelling salesman
was more interesting than the other
Gould has definite ideas about
things around this campus. He believes that every student should have
one or two student activities to balance the academic side of his life.
And sets a 3ooi example by belonging to the Phyers Club, the Parli-
mentary Forum, the Rowing Club,
the Badminton Club, and being on
the Students' Council.
Asked about his opinions regarding
Campus morals, Jay said the campus
smacks a little too much of puritan-
ism, He sees nothing wrong in allowing the women to smoke—believes
that we're a liU'.o cramped about such
"My pet topic is the Public Relationship of the University," Gould remarked. "Our reputation in Vancouver and Britisn Columbia is not what
it should be. The responsibility for
this rests with the students to a great
extent. It's up to us to prove that
the University deserves the respect of
the public."
The first practical proof that people
read Ubyssey editorials can be seen
these days down by the firehall. The
boys at the hall have placed a waste
paper brisket by the roadside for the
convenience of the students who
gather to listen tp the World Series
ball game, and eat their lunches
while there. Above the basket is a
sign advising oil and sundry to put
their refuse in the proper place—and
on the sign is pasted a copy of the
editorial in Tuesday's Ubyssey entitled, "Keep the Campus Clean."

Vikings Play Football
Thunderbirds Watch
Varsity Is No Match For Classy Bellingham
Defeats may come, defeats may go; but Wednesday's 77-0
whitewash at the hands of Bellingham Normal will go down in
Varsity annals as the most stupendous of its kind. The game
had everything that contributes to a complete route—a heavy,
well-drilled squad of college stars pitted against a squad of
light, inexperienced rugby and Canadian football recruits.

38-0; half time, score-keeper takes a
much needed rest.

Percy Williams to
Coach Track Boys
At a late hour last night, word
reached the Ubyssey that Percy Williams, former Olympic sprint sensation and coach of the Varsity track
teams last year, has consented to resume that position for the coming
With Williams as coach, Varsity
would have chances for the best
track team in recent year. With the
welcome addition of such stars as
Howie McPhee and Alec Lucas, the
loss of last year's graduates will be
partly compensated.
The track is in the best condition
ln recent years. A gardener la working every day and the track will be
in perfect shape by next week. Very
fast times are expected to be clocked
in all sprinting events,
A meeting of the Track Club will
be held today, Friday, in Arts 106
at 12:15 p.m. The appointment of
coach will be announced, and an election of captain for the year will be
held. Also Senior Manager Town will
outline the club's program for the
season 1935-36.
With the news of U.B.C.'s disasterous defeat at Bellingham Wednesday, night, the question once again arises in the
mind of every person interested in the welfare of University
athletics: "Is inter-collegiate competition in American football
worth our while?"
The main object of this sort of competition, according to
its supporters, is to keep this University in touch athletically
with similar institutions, as far as possible. Seeing that it was
not feasible to carry out this plan with Canadian Universities
because of the great distance separating them, they looked to
American colleges to provide the competition.
And because those colleges played American football
they chose to compete in that sport, with the expressed intention of later entering an American Junior Conference League.
By the time we have a grid team good enough to compete in a Junior Conference, a ticket for a forty minute strato-
ship ride to the University of Alberta will cost six bits, Saskatoon and Winnipeg will be only a short time further, and the
Library will have enough wings to make a freshman dizzy.
This department is not opposed to Inter-Collegiate Competition as a whole. Let there be no mistake about that. But it
is opposed to sacrificing our athletic reputation by taking part
in a sport which fits neither our attendance regulations nor
our pocketbook.
The colleges which are members of the Pacific Coast Junior Conference have systems of "subsidising" prospective grid
stars; have first class experienced high school material coming
up very year and have full time coaching staffs who are paid
high salaries. To them that is part of the game.
If our athletic bosses can manage to compete on this
scale, all right; but if they cannot, is it fair that they should put
a willing and hard-working bunch of players representing the
U.ECC. in such an unfortunate position?
A meeting of the Rowing Club was
held at noon ytstorday with Wilson
MacDuffee in charge. Fifty members were present. It was decided
that practices will be held on Wednesday and Saturday at 2 o'clock. The
equipment of the Vancouver Rowing
Club will be used. The fees will be
two dollars for the term while the
coach will be Mr. Brand.
Will all men interested in grass
hockey sign name and give phone
number on notice in quad.
If a turnout of forty enthusiastic would-be puck chasers is indicative of Varsity's prowess on the
ice, then just watch the Hockey
Thunderbirds roar through all opposition this season.
As the first step in organizing this
year, the Hockcyists Fleeted their executive with the result that Ralph
Cudmore was named President, and
Burnett and Lea, Vice-President and
Secretary, respectively.
Although nothing definite was decided, the club will probably enter
a team in the Intermediate City Loop
and in addition, will play the University of Washington three games,
two to be staged in Seattle and one
in Vancouver.
A meeting of the Golf Club will
be held Friday at noon in Arts 104.
The sweaters to be used will be blue
with a golf crest and will be of the
zipper style. Successful meets were
held last year with the C.P.S. and
Bellingham Normal. These will be
continued this year.
A match with Bellingham Normal
is arranged for the Friday after next.
The following are members from
last year's club who will again compete: Pete Sharp, John Berry, Govdie
Livingston and Ted Charlton.
Wally Mayers, champion of the
Peace Portal course, who is attending the Colbge may compete along
with Ward Allen.
English Rugby Team To
Play Ex-Magee Tomorrow
Vanity WiU Field Strong Fifteen
With the kick-off tomorrow against Ex-Magee, Varsity begins her.annual grind to senior rugby honors. This year the
team seems stronger than ever with most of last year's stars
back and some promising players from the second division. New
enthusiasm and keener competition for places have marked the
pre-season practices, which have been fast and hard, as rumours
of a California tour still float on the campus air.
 ®>   Johnny BirJ will be in the back-
field as fullback for the opener.   In
English Rugger
The play-offs for teams in the Vancouver Rugby Union have been simplified but made heavier by the withdrawal of two tetms from first division circles. Under the new deal,
there v/ill be two rounds in the series and each team will have two shots
apiece at their favorite enemies in
the battle for city honors instead of
the one previously planned in the
"double-play-off"  announced earlier.
This change makes Varsity's first
game in the Miller Cup series a local
against Ex-Magee, not at Nanaimo
with the sooty city side. The game
is scheduled for the Brockton Point
Oval after tha Rowers and Occasionals finish their 2:30 tilt. North Shore
and Britannia meet on the lower
pitch at the hour of the Occasional-
Rowers struggle.
Accordingly, the Miller Cup play
should end on Dec. 7 or thereabouts,
depending on delays caused by the
Varsity and Occasionals are as usual bracketted for their annual battle
on Nov. 9, in "Homecoming" week.
McKechnie Cup dates were also
settled at the Monday meeting of the
Board of Control. They are Nov. 11
Remembrance Day (at Victoria) and
New Year's Day. On top of this Varsity may have a chance to meet the
New Zetland All-Blacks in a test
match when they reach here on their
tours, and is sure to have several
players on the test teams chosen to
meet this famous fifteen.
In the second division, Varsity
meet-; the N.S.A.B. at 2:30 Saturday,
at Doug'as Park.
On the campus—K. and E. Polyphase Slide rule. Finder please communicate with Jim Dwinnell via Arte
Letter Rack.   Reward.
The following players will turn out
on Saturday for English Rugby for
the 2 (b)  team:
E. Robertson, McFarlane, Burton,
Petapiece, Knox, Dickie, Rennie, Wilson, Griffin, Cunningham, R. C.
Smith, Trussel, Killam, Whitelaw.
The time and place of the game
will be announced later. The strips
may be obtained on Saturday morning at the gym.
At a short meeting Tuesday noon,
Miss Dot Yelland, president of the
club, opened the Grass Hockey season with the announcement of a
game Saturday a* 2:15 at Connaught
Park. All interested were requested
to turn out; equipment will be distributed directly before the game.
Harry Pearson—Captain. Graduate in Commerce; now in
Agriculture. Five times winner of Big Block. Plays breakaway and is the despair of all opposing stand-off halfs.
Dave Carey—Vice-Captain. From the Old Country where
he practically stepped from the cradle to a rugby field. An Arts
man.   An advocate of the falling pass.
Jimmy Pyle—This is his third year in senior company. Arts
man. A stocky second row man, but very fast. Product of Byng.
John Harrison—Men's Athletic Representative. Third year
in first division. Learned his rugby in Melbourne and must
have learned it good, for he clicked with the seniors in his
first year here.   Arts.
Al. Mercer—University School, Vancouver Island, taught
him his rugby. He is fast and tackles well. Good kicker. Usually plays inside three-quarter.   Arts man.
Strat Leggatt—Speed to burn and a change of pace make
him a high scorer.   Science man.   Usually plays on the wing.
Joe Roberts—A middle distance track star, a good end in
Canadian football and now a rugby players. A wing three-
quarter.   Plenty fast.   From Victoria College.   Arts.
Jim "Pot" Mitchell—Three time Big Block winner. Early
rugby training at Brentwood College, Vancouver Island. Probably the best hook in the city.   Science.
Ed. Maguire—Answers to "Guagy." Uses his weight to advantage in the scrum. Fast and hard-working. Arts man. Product of Kitsilano High.

Swimming Club
By Newcomers
The old idea that an executive
doesn't make a ciub is clearly proven
by our own m>Hr> swimming club this
year. In spite of the fact that the
better part of the executive is not
back from last year still there are
more than enough new stars joining
the club this year to strengthen it
to supernormal power.
The dip and dive artists have lost
their president, Magnus Lund, from
last year but the club itself has
swelled to supernormal heights. Such
stars as Archie Byers, Stan Roberts,
Dick Cline, Hri.ry Stradiotti, and
Bruce Millar will be here to win
plenty of medals and cups for the
rapidly developing club.
Archie Byers is a swimmer of note
around this town, having won many
free style championships. Dick Cline
is also a prominent free stylist as
are Jimmie Hinton and Bruce Millar.
Stan Roberts is a back-stroke champ.
There has so far been no coach to-
replace Bill Reid from last year. The
other officers for the year will probably be picked from last year's two
remaining officers, Jimmie Hinton.
and Bill Wainwright.
If enough nev members join the
swimmers ranks the proposed gala
with University of Washington from
last year's program might become a
reality. There will also be one or
two interclass regattas.
We are equipped and organized
to give you the Service and
High Quality Photography that
the University desires.
