Prof. G. P. Drummond gave a dtsr
concise statement of tho world's
worse worries to tho Vancouver In-
stitutt Saturday night.
He first discussed the Ignorance of
leonomlo affairs shown by those tl-
tottd to nue and showed that Democracy falls to bring expert knowledge and men to tht forefront and
that tht only hopeful Influence ta
Government, is that of the academically trained men ta the permanent
Civil Service. Legislatures are Economic Dictators and their Do-Noth-
ing policy prevents any progress. The
present system has unlimited power
to produce but is very weak in distribution.
Two of the chid reasons why a
good dfttributory system Is necessary
and are (1) Mod of this world's goods
are possessed by a few people; (2)
The tremendous Increase ta advertising. In tht U.S.A. 14 per cent of
the population earn over 2000 doUars
per year and get 40 par cent of tht
national tacoma. The rod of tht

depend on private or public charity.
Since 1911 the output of goods has
increased 80 per cent for the same

The two chief functions of a Democracy are to distribute welfare
as equitably and as continuously as

Paying higher taxes. At present
labour gets 67 per cent of the profits

a corresponding increase in wages

Hark To Tbe
Tale of Tea!
Under the multi-colored eights in
tho Commodore Cafe on Saturday
tho Women's Undergraduate Sodtty
entertained guests at bridge and tea,
the proceeds of which are to go for
philanthropic purposes. Seventy-five
dollars was realised.
Bridge was the order of the day
until 5 o'doek whtn tht gamt adjourned for tea, and many students
whoso tattutcts were not equd to
the hazards of contract or auction
dropped ta to share the sandwiches
and chocolate cake. OUve Norgrove
acted the part ot commissionaire,
succumbing to the generd urge by
playing solitaire when tickets were
not forthcoming to be collected. LU
Scott, Dorothy Thompson, and Helen
Lowe were among those responsible
for making the affair a success.
Prizes were awarded to Mrs. WiUlam Johnrion, Miss Avis Paul, Mrs.
Tweedde, and Mrs. Robinson. These
were donated by Henry Birks, O. B.

Wed. 8:15
The Engineering Institute of Canada, Vancouver Branch, wiU hdd a
meeting ta Ap. Sc. 100 on Wednesday
evening at 8:15. The proceedings
will be in charge of the student section. Three papers wUl be given,
each to be accompanied by slides.
Clifford Lord wm speak on "The
Experiences of a Geologist in Northern Rhodesia." Hedley Fowler will
give a paper on "Road Construction
In the Omineca." Professor Gillies
will present a set of slides of Engineering Practice In the Seventeenth
Century. Members of the Branch
are asked to attend and bring a
friend, as the Student Section has
made a special effort to make this
meeting worth while.
Attention Is called to fhe fact that
the meeting of November 28, at
which Dr. Carrothers was to lecture,
has been cancelled.
At a recent meeting of the executive of the Branch, It was decided
not to adopt the report published in
last month's edition of the Journal,
since conditions are not favourable
to the development of the Institute
along strictly professional lines. The
Report, if adopted, would make the
Institute a mere technical society,
and would eliminate all possibilities
of closer connections with the Pro-
^ incial  societies.
Art of Europe
Is Subject Of
Talkby Clark
Early European Art was tht subject chosen bjr Dr. A, P, B. Clerk,
When he addressed the Art Club last
Wednesday evening. The lecture was
illustrated with many photographs
and coloured prints.
The ancient Greek art is usually
thought of as the art of architecture
and scultpure because only these
two forms remain today. The Greeks
had a great school of paintings but
they have all perished. We have
however, a few clues as to what they
were like. When the Romans painted
the walls of their houses with frescoes they imitated the Greek paint-
Many Good Frescoes In Rome
In Rome many fine examples of
this work were found on cellar walls
In these paintings we find not the
flat unred figures of the early
Christian pictures, but a beautiful
distribution of the figures combined
with realistic representation of human people. The ancient Greeks
brought to a height the perfection
of rhythm of line.
Constantinople, the centre of
Christianity, was also the starting
point of wedern European art. The
conception of art was different. It
did not aim at representation but
became, instead, more decorative.
This arabesque form together with
the early Christian art, which banned
the use of the human figure ta sculpture, produced a new form of pic-
torid representation slightly like the
old Roman mosdes. In those days
the people were unable to read and
this new art was a direct result from
a desire of the church to Instruct
the people by picturing dories from
the Bible.
Stiffness Features Moadcs
These coloured mosdes are a form
of plctorid revelation during the fird
years of the Christian era. The figures are stiff, Imposing and unred-
istic. The form of art suggests the
form of Christianity and as the artists began to create a less aweln-
spiring figure of Christ we find a
corresponding change in the feeling
of religion. The superhuman and
inhuman give way to the human.
We have two centres of the beginning of European art—the Italian
school of Giotto in Florence and the
Flemish school in Flanders. These
two schools continued separately until near the end of the sixteenth century. The father of painting is Giotto, the Florentine, His paintings
are considered superior to those of
the Rennaissance because he was absolutely sincere In all his work, ror
the first time we see movement and
life and essential realism of the human form. He had the power to put
great feeling in his pictures. It is
characteristic of Giotto that we sense
dramatic moments In all work. There
were no details In his paintings to
distract the attention from tbe central theme. He achieved a superb
simplicity  of  conception.
With the advent of mural painting
in Padua European art was launched

Dorothy Thompson, president of the Women's Undergrad.,
and Vic Rogers, president of the Men's Undergrad., are handling the first big social function of the year, the University Ball.
This dance, an innovation replacing the Arts Ball, will be held
at the Hotel Vancouver, Friday night, and will be open to students of all faculties. To prevent congestion, a limited number
of tickets were printed, and the student body will be watching
with interest the outcome of the new venture.

Says Perry
Pacific Area
Group Listens
To Seto More
First ot Series of Lectures on
Oriental Culture Given to
New Society
The Pacific Area group had the
privilege of listening to a talk by
Seto More on Chinese history and
its relation to the culture of that
country, at a meeting held at the
home of Miss Rose Chu on Thursday
evening. The address is the first of
a series on phrases of Oriental culture.
Mr. More traced the history of the
present Chinese since they invaded
the country which is now China in
6000 B.C. The original inhabitants
disappeared just as have many of
the Indian tribes In America. Mr.
More explained that the title of
"Yellow Emperor," which was first
applied to the rulers when they were
little more than "big chiefs," is derived not from the odour of the race
but of the earth, for they were lords
of the earth.
In the sixth Century B.C. came
the great age of Chinese philosophers.
Chief among them is Confucius. Desiring to unite his country, which
was in a state of feuddiam, he advocated respect for the king, tile
father of the land. About this time
another philosopher was preaching
"universal law," ta teachings very
dmilar to Christianity.
The Chinese have no name corresponding to "China" for their country, but the European term came
from one of the imperial dynasties,
Ts'in, a name which when it became
known ta Europe was applied to the
country as a whole. It was the fird
of the two emperors of this family
who built the Great WaU. Wishing
China to be a culturd unity as weU
as a notified one, he abolished the
dldects and burned the old classical
books. To be absolutely sure that
none of the dd learning remained, he
also buried alive eight hundred
scholars. From his time on, the written language of China has always
been the same, although the spoken
language varies. This has been of
great importance in preserving Chinese civilization during times of invasion. Chinese writing Is not entirely satisfactory, however, as it involves the memorization of thousands
of symbols. There Is a demand In
China  today for phonetic writing.
In the first century before Christ
lived one of the world's greatest historians, Szu-Ma-Ts'len. He taught
the Chinese how to write scientific
history, and his work Is so esteemed
in China that it Is known simply as
"Tlie History."
About 105 A.D. there came a great
blessing to the human race. Paper
was invented. In early times the
Chinese had communicated by knots
in ropes, a big knot signifying a big
victory and so on. Then they carved
letters into bone or burned them
into bamboo sheets. Mr. More told

Ten Invites
Per Member
For Plays
Addressing a meeting of the Players' Club In Arts 106, Monday, Preddent BUI Cameron made announcements concerning the issue of invitations for the Christmas Plays. "A
thousat^skjdasrtav wiU k« admitted
on Thursday night and five hundred
on Saturday night" he stated. Each
member of the dub is allowed to
invite ten guests, six on Friday, and
four on Saturday. As one member
of the club suggested, it is not possible to invite five people on one
card and dill have nine invitations
left. As students are admitted free
there is no need to send them cards.
Lists of the guests and their addresses mud be given to Nancy
Symes, the secretary, or placed on
her desk in the Green Room by tomorrow without fail. Otherwise
the guests will not receive their Invitations.
BiU Cameron stressed the need for
first and second year dudents to
pass their exams, since those who do
not pass are not allowed to try out
for the Spring Play, and there is too
much  tdent  to be  wasted  in  this
"I wish to take this opportunity to
congratulate those who succeeded in
getting their parts,, and also, to encourage those who tailed. These
members wiU have a chance of do-
tag good work on costume and other
committees, and there is always the
Spring Play to come."

Next Friday night the first major social function of the
University year will take place in the Crystal Ballroom of the
Hotel Vancouver.
When Council presented the revised social programme
for the session at the first Alma Mater meeting of the year,
there was considerable argument and even some recriminations
before it was finally approved. Some claimed that the two new
formals, the University Ball and the Alma Mater Ball, would
be nothing but glorified Frosh Receptions, with perspiring mobs
milling round an overcrowded hall to the tunes of an orchestra
which could not be heard in the far corners.
To obviate this difficulty, tickets for the University Ball
have been limited to a sane amount, namely two hundred and
fifty. On a dance floor the size of the Crystal JJallroom, two
hundred and fifty couples can find ample space for their peregrinations. This then digposes of the "stampede" argument.
Another criticism of the time, was that tickets would have
to be limited. Granted, Students who voiced this sentiment seem
to have forgotten that the sale of tickets will be automatically
limited by the paucity of dollar bills on the Campug, and by the
fact that many studenta are finding it increasingly difficult to
find time for the minor dissipations of a University career, due
to the impossibility of professors' spoon-feeding as much as
has been customary. That thia ig so is proven by the fact that
the diurnal population of the Library haa almost doubled this
So let's try the new 'Varsity Ball before it is relegated to
Limbo, and see if we can't make it a success, despite our regrets
at the passing of our old friends, the Arts, Science, and Agricultural Balls.
"Faith, Hope and Charity—and the greatest of these is
Charity." These Biblical words were prominent in an advertisement published in connection with the recent Welfare Drive.
Various organizations on the U. B. C. Campus seem to
have taken that creed to heart.
The Ubyssey, usually a disinterested onlooker with regard to fraternities and sororities, cannot pass up this opportunity to heartily congratulate the various Greek Letter Societies which have recently done their share in making life just
a little more livable for the less fortunate people of our city.
The fraternities, in a spirit of genuine unselfishness, have
stepped out to show people that they are, after all, human young
men and women who will be as ready as the next person to
"do their bit".
In acting thus, they justify not only their existence, but
their original purpose.
At the Show Shop
At this increasingly popular Vardty
resort may be viewed "The Crooner",
featuring David Manners, the popular
Canadian actor.
In depicting the rise and faU of a
radio "Humming Bird" from the
heights, he presents one of the bed
character portrayals of the year. Reminiscent of Rudy Valee.
The Orpheum—
The Orpheum presents this week a
typical Ernest Lubitsch comedy romance, "Trouble In Paradise." The
plot is as weak ns the usual Hollywood standard, but on the whole the
play is quite amusing, because of
Charles Ruggles and Herbert Marshall, late of Merry England. The stage
show is just another "Fanchon and
Marco "Idea", this time starring Francis X. Bushman, Jr.
The Capitol—
Jack Hulbert of Sunshine Susie

in "Jack's the Boy", through two
hours of indecision In pursuit of a

the heroine to boot. The usual wandering plot with an excellent comedian.

Approximately 450 A.D. an incident
happened that is of great interest to
this continent. Some monks travelled east until they came to a new
country, of which they wrote in detail, and their description is almost
exactly like wnat we know of Mexico at that time. If it was Mexico,
they were ahead of Columbus by a
thousand years.
Speaking of the lack of perspective
In the old Cmnese art, Mr. More
said it must not be compared with
western art. To the Chinese a painting is a poem and a poem a painting. The Chinese do not draw a picture from nature as from inspiration
or poetry. An old Chinese picture
will keep you thinking and imagining for hours, a power which modern art doesn't often have.

Yet all these replies seem
something. Perhaps it is statistics that people want, and I
am absolutely out of the picture when it comes to statistics.
They could apply to the editor
for that; or to Mr. Muck, if
they want humor; or to Euterpe's representative to get a
flow of brilliant repartee. But
I am quite useless.

made itself conspicuous not al-
togther nobly at the Alma

fact, joined almost en masse in
the ten-minutes-to-one exodus
which invariably characterizes
A.M.S. meetings of import.

Muckateers Crasb
To Second WinN
By Cyrius de Screpancle
This week, folks, the broadcast
feature is being brought to you from
Asthmatic Park where the Inter-
Elastic Canadian Rugby championship is being dedded. The two
teams partidpating art Buck's Bulbs
and tht Muckateers. At any moment
now the game should be under way.
Buck's Bulbs have the kick-off.
There's the kick, high up Into the
lights! Wdl, wdll The ball struck
a light and broke it. McOoofus
caught the sphere on his own 40-
yard line and was drowned after
running it back to his own IS yard
line. Muckateers ball on their IS.
It's a fake play around the left end.
A fumble by Chang Suey. However
the Muckers recovered possession,
jud about the same tune as C. Suey
recovered consciousness. Tht boys
are in a huddle. Now they're out
of it. D'Artagnan has snapped tiie
ball to Caehois, who in turn gave it
to Tom Thumb. As there is no one
near for Tom to give tht ball to ht
is starting to run. Ht is downed by
a hod of taokltrs on his own two
yard Una. litis is a bad dtuatlon
folks, if Buck's Bulbs oan make the
necessary a yards It will moan a score
as tht'Muckateers havt 33 yards to
make and it Is third down. This
calls for strategy ... Wall, for tht
love of Mlkel Tht whole Muck team
has lined up as if lt were kicking
tht other way. Out comes tht ball
to Caehois, who staggers backwards
for a 80 yard gain ... There's your
strategy, folks! That cunning quarterback of a Caehois sure knows his
stuff, no saw the team were bound
to carry the ball the opposite direction than that ln which they were

First down for Muckateers on the
Bulb's 49 yard line. The Pub lads
have faced about properly now and
are ready to play. Caehois has the
ball. It's a long forward pass to
Cyrius de Screpansle, who caught it
after the first bounce. The ball went
about 33 yards that time. However,
play is called back as the pass Is
ruled incomplete. The ball Is
snapped . . . Another 35 yard forward pass to C. de S. who muffed
it but caught it after the fird hop.
The crowd is booing the rtf. now. Instead of pendidng the men of Muck
S yards for two Incomplete forward
passes in succession, he is advancing
the ball SS yards . . . Jud a moment
till I gd the Inside dope on that de-
ddon ... It was Quite logical, folks.
Do Serepande dalmed that he caught
the ball on the "half' for twice in
a row which makes one. Therefore
one forward pass waa complete.
That's reasoning for you!
The boys are In a huddle again.
Now they're out of It. The ball
comes out to Shrdlu Etaoin, who
carves bis way with tomahawk and
bowie knife through tht Bulb line
for a 10 yard gam.
It la raining quite hard down here
now, ladies and gents, and I'm afrdd
that some of tht lights art going to
bt broken by tht heavy shower. Yes,
the field is growing quite dark as
light after light "pops" out. It certainly looks as if this game will have
to be called off . . . and the Muckateers have only three yards to go for
a score.
The field is growing decidedly
brighter now. Lights are appearing
once more. I guess the management
obtained other spares from somewhere. The Muckateers are in a
huddle now. Now they're down on
the ball . . . But where on earth la
the other team! Not on the field,
that's certain! Just a moment, the
announcer is telling the crowd something through the public address system. I'll turn on more power so you
can hear . . .
"Ladeez an Jennelman! De game
for tonight has been called off on
accowna we hadda use all de Bulb

"Circumventis omnis partibus" murmured Duncan with a triumphant
smile. "You're nd ao hot," add
Chang Suey, sneering leeringly at us.
In another second he had effervesced.
The tears streamed down Duncan's
face. "Rats!" he add hysterically,
"He's gone again.'' "Never mind,"
I add soothingly. "Let's go down to

It was rahiing so I put on my Bollard hat. "Do you remember tho

"And do you remember the other

"What will we do now?" I said
helplessly. "I know," said the detective gaily, "Let's play games.

To Place on Top in Burrard League
Varsity Boys In Splendid Shape To Win By
49-22 Score—Offensive Play Spectacular
— Zone Defense Worlcs Well — New
Players Show Great Capabilities —
Play Meralomas Tomorrow
By Day Washington
In a dazzling display of dynamic offensive and defensive
basketball combination at the V.A.C. Gym last Saturday night,
Coach Allen's Blue and Oold Senior "A" quintette romped
through the bewildered Oeorge Sparlings' squad by a 49-22
score to take the top berth in the Burrard League.
With every player in top form, the boys displayed championship calibre and dished up a whirlwind brand of ball to decisively avenge the 24-25 defeat the Sparling outfit handed them
ten days ago. After the fird minutet)
of play, tht nnd outcome was never
ln doubt
The college boys were popping in
baskets from all angles and were
converting a good percentage of foul
shots to increase the score; while the
sporting goods outfit could not get
through the Vardty zone defense
very often to shoot from close In,
and had to be content with a total
of seven basnets.
Sparlings' Score Ftot
Purves opened the score for Sparlings in the fird few seconds of play
with a nice looping shot from tho
dde, and a foul shot immediately
after put Vardty three points down.
Pi Campbell missed two free throws
for Vardty; but two beautiful baskets in Quick suecesdon by Nicholson, and another a moment later by
Jimmy Barddey, gave the college
boys thd load, which they never
onct relinquished.

Wed Vancouver controlled a majority of the play ln the first half,
and broke through the Blue and

The Vardty forwards wart unable to
make much headway agalnd North

second half with the score 3-0

Bardsley Plays Wall
Barddey showed his vdue to the
Blue and Gold squad by scoring a
brace of baskets after some pretty
offensive play, and Pi Campbell
steadied down to sink a foul shot.
Diminutive Ran Matthison went on
the floor for Varsity, and tallied a
foul and a basket for a total of 3
points in less than as many minutes.
Sparlings' Call Time Out
With the score 16-7 against them,
Sparlings called time out for a conference. However the rah rah boys
also talked things over in a "ways
and means" huddle, and while the
sporting goods outfit found the hoop
for two baskets, Nicholson, Ken
"Hooker" Wright, Campbell, and Nicholson again, scored baskets in the
order named to bring the score to
With ten points to his credit, Nicholson got a big hand from the
crowd as he was replaced by Douglas. Hooker Wright moved up to
centre and Pi Campbell went back
to guard. Foul shots by Osborne,
"Hooker" and "Pi" and a basket by
Matthison brought the half-time
score to 20-11.
Vardty Strong In Second Halt
Sparlings opened the score again in
the second half, but baskets by
"Horses" Douglas and Ken Wright
Increased Vanity's lead to 33-14.
Sparlings missed two foul shots, and
Nicholson and Barddey came on for
Douglas and Matthison.
While U.B.C. waa busy netting 7
points on baskets by Hooker Wright
(2) and Nicholson, and a foul by
Campbell, the shop boys had to be
content with 3, and the score increased to 40-17.
Foul Shots Predominate
For the next few minutes foul shots
were the order of the night (or rather Yeo and Strdght). Campbell
missed two free throws and Bardsley one. Kennington of Sparlings
sunk one and Ken Wright and Tony
Osborne followed suit to change the
score to 42-18.
After another basket by Campbell,
D. Wright came on the floor to replace Bardsley in the Blue and Gold
line-up. A foul shot by Purves, and
a basket by Wills Increased Sparlings
total  points  to  21.
With only two minutes to go Matthison replaced Wright for Varsity
and promptly popped in a basket, to
make the score read 46-21. A foul
by Nicholson and another pot shot by
Matthison ended the scoring for U.
B.C.; while a free throw by Mcnae
of Sparlings brought the final score
to 49-22.
Nicholson, Matthison and Wright
were thc high scorers for Varsity,
but it was the superlative team work
throughout the whole game, rather
than any individual scintillation that
tie, Saturday at Brockton.
Ex-Magta also hdd their podtion
at the head of the Miller Cup series,
with a lead of four points over any
other team in the league.
Fad Game
The students and the Kerrisdale
club gave the fans a fast battle despite terrible playing conditions, both
teams resorting mainly to dribbling
attacks as accurate handling was entirely out of the question.
The college forward line starred
Brent Brown, Doug Brown, Pearson
and Morris, while Brand at fullback,
Leggat and Ken Mercer showed well
in the backfield. Crls Ddton at wing
played a brilliant game.
The Magee's produced a smart
backline with Yoshi, Austin and
Johnstone and featured Marrion,
Lightheart and Ward In the forward
Thrilling Punt Duel
The early minutes of the fird half
featured a thrilling punting dud and
a couple of forced safety touches by
the Vardty linesmen. Territorial play
following this was fairly evenly divided, both teams getting equd
chances at each others lines, but
neither having the steam to take a
Interest reached a high point in
this half when Howie Cleveland,
U.B.C.'s scrappy forward, made a
sensationd run to gain much needed
yardage. Despite this the South
Enders had Yeo's fifteen on then-
five yard line when the whistle
sounded for the fird period.
Magee kicked off but the Blue and
Gold were fad to gain possession
and ran the ball to the Magee line.
A scrum down resulted on the five
yard Une, and in the following play
the Red and Black booted the pig
skin to centre field. Still pressing,
the Kerrisdde boys got the ball further down the fidd and then Marrion, a Magee lineman, got a penalty kick which fell out and short.
The dudents nabbed the leather for
a safety touch in the god to hold off
a score.
With the ball again at centre, Ken
Mercer led another dribbling advance
movement which called for a defensive attitude on the part of the
Magee's. Then play evened out
slightly with the forwards of both
clubs showing well with smart footwork.

for third and fourth year dudents it
is now possible, for the flrd time In
two years, for Vardty to enter teams
ln the Rday Races at the Rotary Ice
Carnivd to be held at the Arena on
December 8.
"There is a close bond of contact
between Rotary and the Student
Body of the Unlverdty, and it is
one which we would like to preserve
and develop more fully, and we believe that entries of teams from the
Unlverdty in the Carnivd races will
further strengthen those bonds." Mr.
A. V. Vickery, the Executive Secretary of the Rotary Club of Vancouver, stated in extending tho invitation to the students to partidpate.
All who wish to try out should report to either Tony Osborne or Howie Cleveland. It is hoped that a
spedd Varsity relay race may be
run off, with teams entered from
each of the faculties, Aggie, Arts,
Science, and Commerce. Then there
will be the representative team from
all faculties which will enter into
competition against the high school
teams. Practice hours will be announced and may be obtained from
Bob Osborne. There should be a
good turnout for splendid material
is at hand in the Unlverdty this

The Varsity gridmen' dreams of
bringing home the Inter-scholastlc
Canadian Rugby Cup were shattered
Friday at Athletic Park, when the
Vancouver Couege turned the tables
on them to the tune of 8-1.
The fird quarter opened with the
Colltge charging far into tht Blue
and Gold territory, which resulted h\
a dtadlint kick for 1 point, by
Wright for the Purple and Orange.
Canto the second saw the U.B.C.
tightening up, and holding the Vancouver College In check, leaving the

In a previous sportorial, appearing some time ago, we undertook verbally to berate the general student body of thia university for its absolute lack of college spirit with regard to the
support of the Blue and Gold athletic teams. We condemned not
only the apathy of the students in general, but also the stagnation of the Pep Club which was consituted for the purpose of
generating more college spirit, and for organizing thi* spirit into effective rooting sections at athletic functions.
Although too late to be of any use in the Big Four Canadian
Rugby season, the Pep Club has organized at last, and is doing
splendid service in creating keen interest in athletic encounters.
A Pep meeting has been held which resulted in a substantial increase in student attendance at a basketball game Saturday
night. Yell-kings have been obtained to lead the masses in the
more robust form of mass elocution, although (due to lack of
practice and familiarity) the execution of the yells sounds, as
yet, more like murder.
And the effect of thfc increase in activity is greatly noticed
and sincerely appreciated by the Blue and Gold athletes! A
prominent basketball star was enthusiastic in his statement after
the game Saturday night that "It sure is great to have lots of
student support on the side-lines! It peps you up, and keeps
you on your toes to have encouragement from fellow students
who are just as intent on victory as the team."
thus the whole thing works in a circle. The Pep Club peps
up the students; the students pep up the team; and the team
peps up the game, which in turn peps up the Pep Club to
put peppier pep into the pupils who .... and so on "perpep-
How about it everyone? Get in this circle with the motto that
"Pure, palpitating perpetual pep paves paths to plenty points!"

In an interesting game at Cambie
Street on Saturday, Vardty Senior
Soccermen dropped a 2-0 decision to
North Shore United, the league leaders. T./o gods in the fird fifteen
minutes were the only scores of the
Varsity gave a creditable performance, and were outclassed in only
one department — experience. The
Blue and Oold did not have the nec-
esary finish to make their opportunities count, and failed on this account to score enough goals to have
at least tied the game. The Redshirts, on the other hand, on only
one occasion wasted an opening.
North Shore Rally
Five minutes from the start, North
Shore scored their first counter when
McNichol drove a hard shot through
the comer. Frattinger had no chance
to make a save. Ten minutes later
Dempsey scored the only other goal
of the game when he drove a shot
against the post for the bdl to rebound into tiie nd.
The Redshirts continued to hold the
edge through mod of the first half,
dthough Vardty were gaining a
greater portion of the play as the
game progressed. However, the u»ue
and Oold attacks were most of them
stopped before they reached the goal

Playing under a druaUng downpour Doc Burke's out-wdghod Senior City squad tasted the bitter dregs
of defeat administered by the North
Vancouver AU Blacks by the score
of 16-0, at Mahon Park, Saturday.
In the first quarter tho AU Blacks,
taking advantage of their superior
weight, carried the ball far mto the
U. B. C. territory, and Hayes bucked
through centre for a touchdown for
5 points, which went unconverted.
Fast on tills score Symonds was
rouged, leaving the score 7-8 for the
North Shore.
In tbe second canto, Varaity put
up a game fight but m spits of this,
Allan of the AU Blacks scored s
kick to the deadline, leaving tho
score 8-0.
In the third period tho UJB.C. hdd
their own and it looked to those on
the ride-lines, that Varaity might
score, but the quarter ended countless.
In the last period, Clift of the All
Blacks, made a run around left end,
and went twenty-five yards for s
touchdown, which was converted.
Varsity then made a spectacular
comeback, but Owing to a series of
bad breaks, the North Shore were
able to score another kick to the
deadline, leaving the find count 15-
Those starring for the Blue and
Gold were, Bower. SneUing, and
Heron. Bower and SneUing exceUed
in their tackling, seldom missing
their men, and Heron was respondble
for aU the yardage made by the Unlverdty.

722 Granville Street
Near the end of the first half, the
Vardty forwards combined well to
carry the bdl into the goal-mouth.
Cooke took a paas from Munday and
drove the bell against the outdde of
the pod. It was a hard break, as
the shot had the godie easily beaten.
The score at the intervd was 2-0 for
North Shore.
Varsity Better In Second Half
Vardty controlled the play for the
fird fifteen minutes of the second
half, but could not beat Pamphlet
in the United god. The backs and
hdves were playing a fine game,
but the forward Une lacked cohesion,
and, dthough they worked through
to a number of good openings, lacked
the punch to make their opportunities
With the period about a third gone
North Shore began to take their
share of the attack, and from then
on thc game was very even. About
fifteen minutes from the end, it appeared that the United would gain
a three goal margin. McNichol broke
clear of the backs, and with only
Frattinger to beat, drove the ball
against the upright. This was the
last good opening either team obtained.
Strong Half Line
The half line was the strong point
of the Varsity team, with all three
men turning in good games. Stewart
at right half was very strong on defence, while Manning gave many fine
passes to his wing man. McGill at
right back was a strong defender.
Laurie Todd was the pick of the
f-rwards, while Dave Todd showed
much   improvement  over  last   week.
