Emergency Campaign Meeting Today
PROBLEMS OF
COLLECTION TO
BE DISCUSSED
Chance  For All  To
Express Their
Opinions
ELECT CHAIRMAN
An emergency mass meeting
of students has been called for
today by the committee in
charge of the Union Building
Campaign. A chairman will be
elected from those attending
and the meeting will be thrown
open to discussion from the be*
ginning.
The Campaign Committee
will only appear on the patform
for a minute at the opening of
the meeting in order to present
the report of results to date.
They ask that the report published in this issue of The Ubyssey be studied.
Some criticism of the Campaign has
been heard on the campus and the
hope is expressed that today's meeting will afford the opportunity for
the critics to voice their opinions and
discuss the, matter.
A full attendance of all students
is expected, with old-timers recalling
the 1930 Campaign when such meetings filled the Auditorium and hundreds sat in the aisles,
To date only $7300 has been raised,
with only a short while before exams
and the close of the term. Immediate
action, or a decision for a new policy
is necessary, it is stressed.
If the policy of the Campaign is to
be changed, today's meeting will decide on the change, after d'scussing
the problem fully.
Aberhart Cabinet
Visit Alberta
Campus
(By Special Correspondent)
The world's first Social Credit legislature visited the University of Alberta campus last Friday evening
when members of the Legislative Assembly were guests of the University
at a dinner in Athabasca Hall and
were later conducted on a tour of
the buildings. Most of the members
expressed great interest in tne various demonstrations which v,ere put
on for them in tha different laboratories and many of them evinced a
desire to visit some of ths departments Later at their leisure.
The dinner was arranged to coincide with the regular dinner of the
students in residence, and altogether
some 250 or more people atn in the
dining hall that evening. Members
of the legislature were seated two at
a table with tho students, while the
cabinet and the university administrative officials occupied the head
table.
Speakers were Premier Aberhart. President Wallace of the University, and Ted Bishop, President of
the Students' Union. In thc course
of his speech, which was marked by
its simplicity and brevity, Premier
Aberhart expressed his pleasure in
being invited to visit the university,
and emphasized the importance of the
part which universities play to-day in
preparing people to meet the increasingly complex problems of modern
life. It is to the graduates of our
universities, be said, that we must
look for the building of the new economic order which must follow that
of today. He closed with thc statement that it is a great source of regret to him that the present financial
condition of the province does not
permit its dealing with the university
as the institution deserves, but that
he hoped in the near future to be
able to do so.

lohn Rldington, popular U.B.C.
Librarian, will not resign this
year, contrary to rumors that
have been In circulation. Although there Is a retiring age
for members of the staff, It was
felt m the case of Mr. Rldington that his term could be expanded for the good of the University. He will remain for at
least another year.
CLAUSEMNDED
Council Tightens
Inebriation
Rules
An amendment to the A.M.S. Code
in the clause referring to intoxication
at university functions resulted from
last night's Council meeting. The
amendment clause reads: "Any person appearing on the university campus or at any university function
showing any evidence of having consumed intoxicating liquor shall be
subject to penalty."
The former clause stated that: "No
person shall be permitted to appear
. . . showing any evidence o? having
consumed intoxicating liquor."
It is explained that the mere prohibition was useless, as students
could, and did just appear in the intoxicated condition. Now, however,
the rules are tightened.
ELECTION RULES
1. Each candidate shall be allowed
a maximum of five campaign signs.
2. No money shall be spent by any
candidate in the interest of his election, campaign.
3. Speeches for Presid-ent, secretary
and treasurer will be limited to five
minutes, and those of their supporters
to three minutes; the remainder of
the candidates will have three minutes and their supporters two minutes.
Election meetings for President will
be March 6; for M.U.S., M.A.A.,
W.U.S. and W.A.A. will take place on
March 12; L.S.E. and Junior Member
candidates will speak on March 13;
and the candidates for secretary and
treasurer on March 16.
Permission was granted for the formation of a University Ski Club, to
operate on  Hollyburn.
Applications Wanted
For Historical Society
Applications are now receivable for
membership in the Historical Society
announces Peter Disney, it's president. These must be in writing and
be in the hands of the secretary, Lennie Price by March 9.
Membership in the society is intended for students proceeding to
their third year, particularly those
contemplating honors in History.
However all students who are interested in history or historical problems
are invited to submit applications. Besides the vacancies open to students
who will be in third year there are
a few vacancies for those who will be
fourth year.
Informal Attire
Decreed
"The All-Varsity Dance that
is to be held on Thursday in
the Crystal Ballroom of the
Hotel Vancouver is going to be
the most general dance that
has ever been held by the University," said Darrel Gomery
in an interview yesterday, "for-
it has the support of all the
faculties and all the students."
The tickets are selling fast and
the success of the dance is assured."
BALLROOM OFFERED
The Hotel Vancouver very kindly
offered to allow the University the
use of the Crystal Ballroom for dancing and the Oak Room for supper.
This has reduced the cost to the University to practically nothing and enabled by far the greatest nait of the
returns to be used for the Union
fund. This has enabled the price to
be cut to 75 cents.
The dance is definitely not formal,
and Tuxedos will be frowned upon,
but girls may wear dinner dresses if
they wish, as this is the last chance
they are likely to have to wear them
this year, at least. For seniors this
dance should be of special interest,
because it will be the last major University function they can attend before graduation, and they had no
dance of their own.
INFORMAL AIR
The programs this time are different from any other dance that has
been held by the Univesity for they
have the University crest at the top.
There are sixteen dances and according to Darrel there will be lots of
cut-ins. The general air will be very
informal.
The patrons and patronesses of the
dance arc Chancellor and Mrs. R. E.
MacKechnie, Dr. and Mrs. L. S.
Klinck, Dean M. L. Bollert, Dean and
Mrs, F. C. Clement, Dean and Mrs.
M. D. Buchanan and Acting Dean and
Mrs. J. M. Turnbull.
Mart Kenney and his Western
Gentlemen will be playing, and since
the orchestra is generally recognized
as the best in Canada west of Toronto,
the music should leave nothing to be
desirfed.
The decorations will be the usual
Crystal Ballroom decorations, supplied
by the Hotel.
Tickets will be sold at the door so
those who could not get their tickets
at the University need not stay home.
NOTICE
PHRATERES AT HOME
Once again the girls of Phrateres
will act as hostesses to tho women
members of the faculty. Mrs. T. H.
Crosby has kindly offered ner lovely
Angus Drive home for Phrateres annual Faculty Tea to be held on Saturday, March 7.
ELECTIONS ACT
AT ALBERTA TO
SUFFERCHANGE
Campus Elections To
Be Run On New
Lines
RADICAUHANGES
By Larry Alexander
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, EDMONTON, FEF. 25-Facing one of its
heaviest and most important agendas
for the year the Students' Council
will meet on Thursday evening of
this week to consider important
changes in the Students' Union Election Act. The draft of the proposed
new act, which is literally packed
with dynamite from one end to the
other, was posted on the university
bulletin boards to-day. Sponsor of
the proposed changes is Ralph Samuels. Mr. Samuels gained fame this
year through his scorching denunciation of Harpea Prowse, Director of
The Student Publicity Department, in
a recent meeting of the Students'
Union. Two weeks ago Mr. Samuels
threatened to take action against the
Gateway for linking his name, by inference, with publication of the "Picador," a small green sheet which appeared twice, some two and three
weeks ago, devoted principally to severe criticism of the Gateway. The
publishers of the "Picador" have never been discovered. Mr. Samuels had
expressed dissatisfaction with certain
phases of student government, and
was appointed by the Council several
weeks ago, together with Bill Scott,
and Stewart Shaw, second year student in Law, to bring in a draft of a
new elections act. The result of this
committee's deliberation appears in
the draft posted to-day.
RADICAL CHANGES
Some of the revolutionary changes
embodied in the proposed act are:
Nominations to be handed in by second Wednesday of October and elections held third Wednesday ot October, instead of in the spring as at
present.
No first year students shall be eligible for nomination to any Student
Union office;
No first year student shall have a
vote in student union elections;
Platforms of all candidates must be
handed in to the Editor of the Gateway and the Secretary of the Union,
before a candidate shall be eligible
for election. These platforms to be
published in the first available issue
of the Gateway.
Provisions are made for a recount
on signed petition presented  by ten
members of the Students' Union with-

DEBATES HERE
The lats Intercollegiate Debate of
the term will take place tonight in
Arts 100 when a team from the University of Oregon meets U.B.C. on
the subject: "Resolved, that it is in
the best interests of world peace for
the United States and Great Britain
to recognize a 'Monroe Doctrine' in
the Orient for Japan."
Debating for U.B.C. are Sem Lipson and Alf Carlson. Both have been
members of the Forum during the
last year, and each has led the debate
at regular meetings. They will take
the affirmative of the resolution. Each
leader will have fifteen minutes, and
each second speaker twelve.
After the second speakers, debate
will be thrown open to the floor of
the house on the regular Forum plan,
speakers being allowed seven minutes.
When all speakers from the floor
have finished, the leader of the affirmative will have a five minute rebuttal. Decision will be by house
vote.
Many Suprise
Nominees
CAREYRUNNING
Up o a late hour last night,
Jay Gould, L.S.E. President,
was the only nominee for Council President next year. Although nominations do not close
until four o'clock today, it is
lively that Gould will be elected by acclamation.
SURPRISE NOMINATIONS
Prominent in debating, in which activity he toured Canada this year,
Gould is well known to all on the
campus. He Is a member of the Players' Club, having handled the publicity for "Hedda Gabler' 'last year.
With another week to go, nominations for other Council positions are
still coming in. A good many rumours are circulating, and every day
brings new surprise nominations.
Pauline Patterson, present Secretary of the Women's Undergrad, vice
president of the Musical Society, and
Associate Editor of the Totem, is in
the running for Alma Mater Secretary. Pauline's activities are numerous, including besides those mentioned, the Letters' Club, Phrateres,
and the Historical Society. Kay
Scott, treasurer of W.U.S.. will oppose her.
The position of Junior Member will
as usual, have a good number of
nominees. Harvey Carruthers, Scienceman and publicity head for Intramural sport, is known to be running.
Another member of Science r?ay also
be on the slate—John Light.
McPHEE RUNNING
A last minute nomination for Junior Member appeared yesterday when
friends of Howie McPhee indicated
that he would run. Alvin Rosenbaum
who originally expressed his intention
to enter this race, may go after the
L.S.E. position.
John Logan, '37 prexy and Senior
Editor of the Ubyssey, will try for
L.S.E. Logan may be opposed by Fred
Hobson of the Players' Club. As
mentioned above, Alvin Rosenbaum
is alternating between Junior Member
and L.S.E.
Dave Carey is definitely in the
M'n's Athletic Representative run-

Ridington Lectures On
Libraries ln Education
In a well-attended Vancouver Institute meeting on Saturday night, John Riddington discussed the part libraries play in
education of today, and their necessity in a democratic state.
"Education^ is a lifelong process," he the Idea that the purpose of getting
an education Is to get Into a class that
declared. 'The formal education in
school or college is merely tie background and preparation for the bigger and broader experience- life. Most
of us think of education as preparation for life. I would rr.lher wo
thought of it as life itself.
COLLEGE JUST BACKGROUND
"Education is a daughter of Democracy, as Democracy is the son of
Liberty, It is the insurance policy
taken out by society to protect itself
against the risks and perils incident
to a great experiment in government,
Democracy can survive on one condition—that it solve the problem of
making intelligent a substantial majority of those it govarns, Lt an uneducated democracy is merely a mob,
the prey to passion, to prejudice, to
selfishness, to interested propaganda,
to demagoguery,
"Between 1820 and 1830 there were
horrified  outcries  over  the  idea  of
does not work, and the fear that thc
leisure class would be abolished.
EDUCATION BIRTHRIGHT
But, a generation or so ago, the fight
for universal education waa won all
along the line. In a century v/e have
conceived and fought for, and established, a new idea, that education is
the birthright of every child born into our society.
"Yet there are more astounding
things our democracy must achieve.
True, "the people" have been taught
to peruse the printed page—and good
heavens! look at the printed pages
they pick out to peruse! That we are
a nation that is literate does not mean
we aiv a nation that is educated.
"Education and wisdom must be
personally, often painfully, acquired
by each individual unit of society.

democracy Is going to rage around thc

Varsity Men to Do
Geology Survey
In Rhodesia
Typical of the esteem in which the
University of B.C. graduates are held
by countries ail over the world is the
choice by the British South African
Company of five stduents in the department of geology here, to do geological survey work in Rhodesia. The
students who will leave at the close
of the spring term for at least one
year in Africa are S. C. Robinson.
B.A.Sc, who is at present working
towards his master's degree; Gordon
Cummings; Lewis Millward, M.A.,
James Black, B.A., Sc; and Bruce
Woodsworth, son of J. S. Woodsworth,
leader of the C.C.F. Party in Canada.
The men were picked by Dr. T. D.
Guernsey, a graduate of U.B.C. in
1924 who is holidaying from his work
in Africa at his home here. Dr.
Guernsey took his Ph.D. at Columbia
after which he entered geological
survey work. Among the many U.B.C.
graduates to be employed in Africa
during the past ten years are: J. L.
Farrington who left in 1928 and who
is now with the Wandered Mine; Earl
Gillanders of the class of Science '25;
Clifford Lord, Science '29; H. E. Nel-
lems. '31; and G. E. Rainier, '30.

Alberta Election Troubles
In the news column today we read of the
dissatisfaction at the University of Alberta
concerning their elective sytsem, which apparently is not unlike ours, We cannot persuade
ourselves, however, that the changes suggested
are much improvement.
It is proposed that the vote be taken from
the freshmen. If elections are held in the
autumn term (another proposal) this would
of course be necessary, as few freshmen know
the score while so green. But at the end of
their year, only prejudice could responsibly
withhold the vote from them. In some respects freshmen are the best voters, for they
are less bound by factional loyalties - - fraternity and club ties. Disenfranchising the freshmen is also alien to the democratic spirit.
Another proposal contended that certain
campus positions, such as the editor of the
paper, should be chosen by election. This
would be absurd, since an editor needs several years of experience on ihe paper before
he can hope to know his business. He must
know the business of every other officer on his
paper- The student body as a whole cannot
hope to determine the ability and experience
of a prospective editor as can the retiring editor under whom he has worked.
Party System Needed?
Much as we hate to say it, there seems to
be a need on this campus for some form of
party government, where two or three groups
■would sponsor slates of nominees for Council
positions. *
This year we see the situation of several
important positions being contested by as many
as four or five candidates. This has happened
before—with disastrous results. Many times
the best man for fi position has been hopelessly
defeated because a confused electorate was
divided in all directions. For the good of the
student body this should not be allowed to happen.
Other universities have drifted into party
government because of sheer necessity. If this
campus does not adopt such a system by choice,
the change will come as a gradual thing. With
all its abuses and accompanying troubles, party
politics on the campus will be our lot sooner or
later. Now is the time to consider the election
problem seriously before another year's elections are here

SYMPOSIUM
The meaning of propaganda, its position
relative to art, and the degree to which an artist must be concerned with his attitude, apart
from its artistic manifestation are matters
which increasingly occupy contemporary
thought.
The Left Wing magazines are themselves
unusually (often curiously) concerned with
art and propaganda, and tend to build up a sort
of dogmatic ritual about it. Some of the so
called intellectuals, in the white heat of purism, accepting the art of say, Waiting for Lefty,
deny the play's very vitality: its relation to the
contemporary scene.
The issue thus almost inevitably becomes a
sort of monstrous quibble. (It is rather pleasant to remember at this time that the argument has very little real significance).
Try, for example, to relate the following
positions: The Progressive Arts Club, as such,
has chosen Waiting for Lefty with definite purpose - - social criticism; the play is an effective
dramatic production and its art is no more
accidental than its theme; also does the play's
art suffer because of its theme; does the play
really stand back far enough from its connection with the contemporary scene; and so on.
We have been told to relate the literature
of an age to the social and economic history of
that age. (Remember the five influences
through which the Elizabethans met the
Muse.) Why then, not try a like treatment of
contemporary literature. And some purist will
exclaim over the degree to which literature
can be allied to history without (a) merely
reporting it and (b) attempting to shape futur'e
history
dulce et decorum est. . .
A performance by the Progressive Arts
Club of Waiting for Lefty at the Empress Theatre, March 11, 8:30 p.m., will be followed by
a symposium on the place of propaganda in the
drama. The speakers for the evening will be
Dr. Sedgewick and Dr. A. F. B. Clark who
have kindly co-operated wtyh the Progressive
Arts Club in this attempt to raise funds in aid
of sending the play East for the drama Festival. James Butterfield will also be present,
and will, I believe, continue his revelations
concerning truth and beauty.
The Empress Theatre, March 11, at 8:30
p.m.
LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
Contributors to the supplement are asked
to get their literary work in to this office as
soon as possible. The Supplement is published
as being representative of the original literary effort on the campus and depends upon the
undergraduate body for its existence. Unless
a somewhat livelier interest is shown there
may possibly not be a supplement this year-
The existing contributions are available to anyone wishing to take the responsibility of publication.

Alberta Varsity
Annual Report
Shows Progress
(By Special Correspondent)
Containing complete information
and statistics of the academic year
1934-35, the annual report of the
Board of Governors and of the President of the University of Alberta was
recently issued in pamphlet form. The
operating deficit of the university for
that term was 112,196.90, representing
the amount by which expenses had
exceeded the estimates. Registration
totalled 2056, including 277 Summer
School students. Largest registration
was in Arts and Sciences in which
751 were enrolled. Medicine, including nursing end dentistry totalled 418,
Applied Science accounted for 263,
and Law was fourth with 35.
In the closing paragraph, titled
"The Progress of the Year," the writer
Of the report remarks "There is an
alertness in student thinking which
promises well for the future. Two
major controversies held the stage,
the one with reference to religion, the
other with reference to politics. On
both issues the students expressed
themselves well and courageously. It
is the essence of university life that
points of view be given expression.
Whether one may find oneself In
agreement with the attitude taken is
less to the point: the significant thing
is that there is no hesiation on the
part of the students in givuig their
convictions, and in arguing for them.
The contributions which were made
during the past year reached a high
level, and reflected on the training
which the university is endeavoring
to give."
Election Changes
At   Alberta
(Continued from Page 1)
in forty-eight hours of posting of election returns.
Not more than four members of any
one fraternity or sorority shall be eligible for nomination the same year to
offices under the Students' Union.
Provision is made for making the
folowing offices elective:
Editor-in-chief of the Gateway
Director of the Year Book
Directors of the Publicity end Public Relations Departments
President of the Debating Society.
These  officers are at  present  appointed by the Students' Council, usually on the recommendation of a retiring officer.
PETITION FOR RECALL
Provision is made fdr instituting a
recall movement, under which 50 students may present a petition to the
Secretary of the Union, following
which he must call a special meeting
of the Union within a wek. If a
majority of students at such meeting
vote to recall a member of the student government he shall resign from
office and a successor elected to the
regular manner.
It is expected that there will be prolonged and bitter debate on this controversial act. Strong opposition to
it has developed in some quarters,
and dissatisfaction with it was expressed in a recent editorial in the
Gateway.
Another matter which may come
up for discussion this week is a
change in the Act respecting Social
Functions, which Is being amended
to make possible the holding of certain major University Dances in the
city, instead of limiting them to the
University Campus as has been the
case in the past.
Peeps' Diary
What about a railroad! I hear Clarence Idyll is running nis own
slate for next year's council.
Evidently, "Conscience is the thing we always believe should
bother the other fellow."
CUSTARD PIE
There's one Aggie at least who has shown a spark of intelligence.
I heard him relating the other day that while Luther Bur bank was
walking in his garden he was accosted by an officious acquaintance
who said: "Well, what are you working on now?"
"Trying to cross eggplants and milkweed."
"What under heaven do you expect from that?"
Mr.  Burbank  calmly  resumed  his  walk . . . "Custard  Pie,"   he
said . . .
WEDDING
So Sid Swift was married on January 6th?
Well, I for one will never have any more worries about buying
wedding presents—not since I've discovered the shop of "lovely
gifts."
Christie-Barbara's Is right near the Lyric Theatre, and it has the
most beautiful things for every occasion. No wonder the Bridge
Club finds it easy to enlarge its membership. All its bridge prizes
are bought there.
USEFUL INFORMATION
And I know too why Sid got married in January. Potter's Jew-
elery shop had a sale of wedding rings after Christmas.
Jack Gillies is back in town with a full-fashioned beard to boot.
Someone should tell him about the slick razors Potter's carry.  They
would even welcome his coming In and asking about their stock.
It's their friendly spirit which attracts so many of the students.
WISE CRACKER
The father of one of our prominent sophs was being shown around
the campus last Thursday. On being introduced to Professor Gage,
I overheard him remark: "I am delighted to meet you—my son took
Algebra from you last year, you know."
"Pardon me," was the answer.   "He was exposed  to it, but *he
didn't take It."
VANITY
The Union Building was not the reason for Jay's absence from
Varsity last week ... he bruised his nose, his leg and his heart all
in one sleigh ride.   Something of a record.
CURIOSITY
I wonder how many students have seen the smallest  shop  in
Canada?   It should surely be mentioned for Vancouver's Jubilee . . .
It is between Granville and Howe on Dunsmuir . . . Phoebe's Hosiery Shop.   Both scarves and hosiery can be bought there.
WANTED
Les Allen wants someone to write his biography "From the Gutter to the Curb".  The only way he will be able to choose from the
rush of applicants Is to pick the man with experience.
SALESMANSHIP
The Players' Club should be complimented on one of their freshman salesmen. He had approached a science professor about the
eternal business of the spring play.  The reply came quickly.
'I'm sorry that my engagements prevent my coming, but I'll be
with you in spirit."
"Splendid!   And where would your spirit like to sit?    1 have
seats at fifty cents, seventy-five cents and one dollar."
SUCH TASTE
The Union Dance this Thursday is going to be the outstanding
event of this year.   Jay is pulling for it so hard that he wants the
attendants of every beer parlor in the city to leave their haunts at
11:30 to come to it.
ALL-VARSITY
A quick way for the girls to look their best is to wear some of the
rhinesetone hair ornaments, or silver and gold leaves in their hair
that come from Maison Henri's.   Men are always dazzled by glitter.
Too bad that Gaskell doesn't allow hats to be worn in a ballroom.
The Band Box has some of the smartest hats In for spring. It's such
a convenient spot for students to drop In ... just above Twelfth
on Granville . . . nearer to the campus than downtown.
LEAP YEAR
Rod Poisson accepted Hazel's proposal because he couldn't afford
to buy her a new dress. Has he never heard of Anne Moloney's?
Perhaps that will scare the men into reading the college paper.
Anne Moloney's is the shop where Mary Young picked out her
brown tweed suit. From her ohs and ahs she evidently has one of
the new three-quarter length spring coats hidden away for better
weather.
I don't know whether hers is the stone colored one I sow there,
or the one with the Inverness Cape sleeves.   Either would attract admiring glances.
COCKTAILS
I wonder how Tj'Brlan's cocktail turned out. I never saw anyone
make such a fuss about a cocktail recipe.
On Thursday the Rowing Club are going to race Oregon College,
at Corvallis.   What can Bern be thinking of to let them miss the All-
Varsity?
CONSCIENTIOUS
There is always'method In Stu Keate's madness. Why was he seen
back on the old campus attending an English 2 lecture. Pernaps that
was one he missed four years ago.
SWEATERS
I discovered that the yellow sweater that Mary Young wears with
her new suit came from Fred Holmes. That accounts for its distinctive look.
Hazel Wright wishes she had bought hers there. Purple dye just
poured out of it last week-end which even Snap won't remove . . .
and the All-Varsity coming.
If she had only seen a few of Fred Holmes specials in time, or
some of his zippered sweaters . . . Zippers all the way down the front
with pleated or belted backs.
. . . zipper forming either an open or a turtle neck. They are
really for men, but the girls wear them for skiing too.
And the boys should see the sleeveless Jaeger sweaters thty have
in stock ... the campus will be seeing them with warmer weather.
OVERHEARD
Council has other troubles besides the Union Building. Yesterday
I overheard a conversation between John Harrison and the treasurer.
Harrison: "I say, I'm in a terrible fix. I want some money, and
I don't know where I'm going to get it."
Clarence Idyll: "Glad to hear it ... I was afraid that you might
have the idea that you could borrow it from me."
The name of Harrison reminds   me of broad-brimmed   hats.     I
heard he brought it from Australia.
HOSSES WILL BE HOSSES
Bern Brynelsen didn't seem to mind being thrown off his horse
last week. I suspect it was his new riding boots from the Britisn
Boot Shop, but Alan Morley witholcls details.
One of the finest examples of the way a pair of shoes from the
British Boot Shop will stand up was when a pair of them was thrown
bodily from the Green Room with Killam's 190 pounds within them—
the test supreme!
Of interest to students is the arrival of British shoes in all leathers
from five dollars at the British Boot Shop.
PRESIDENTS FAUX PAS
Bill Robertson, stage crew chief, gave the president of the Players'
Club a bawling out the other day, when, as president of the Letters'
Club, he had a bawling out coming to himself. Bill was arleep as
usual at the last Letters' Club meeting, but last time he made the
mistake of snoring during a paper . . . Fred Holmes carries attractive mufflers in both silk and wool.

THE ENGLISH
LESSON
By F. F. McQuow
The Professor gave an Invisible nod
as he entered the class-room. He
slipped off his coat, and at once
opened the window. The clsss stiffened, some to attention, some to atmosphere.
"The subject may be a bit dull tonight — 'Punctuation,' — but first we
shall touch on a few routine mistakes," he said. "We have gone over
these during the term, but they continue to occur; It will be as well to
avoid them. For instance, the plural
of 'man' is 'men,' not 'mans*; you
may say any number of men, but it
must always be men. Any questions?"
Complete silence.
"Then," continued the Professor,
"there is the question ot capitals. One
always uses capitals for his own
name; always a capital J for John,
and a capital B for,Brown We do
not know Just why, but it is always
done. Do you all see that? Would
anyone like a fuller explanation?"
Complete silence.
One student wrapped her scarf
about her neck, with much activity.
The Professor hurriedly seized the
rope and pulled the window shut.
"Then there ia the matter of unity—"
The door opened, a late-comer
banged in and seated himself, with
loud scrapings of the chair. The Professor addressed himself to the new
arrival. "We were just speaking of
unity—" The student dragged his
chair closed to hia neighbors. The
Professor beamed. "We have mentioned thla before, but do not seem
to have conveyed tht Idea. I tail
read a bit of this to bring out my
point. It ia hardly fair to the author"—a visible swelling on the part
of the students—"to touch on thla
point only, as the rest is really quite
good."   Reads:
" 'The boy seized a large apple and
bit the father said to hia staff of one,
I shall have to reduce your salary the
overhead is too high, and that evening he told hia sweetheart their wedding would have to be postponed.'
"You seo what I mean. The idea is
good, very good." He paused, and
opened the window very wide. "But,
although the writer knows what he
means, it is not quite clear to the
reader. Of course, I may be a bit
dull about getting it. Any questions?"
Complete silence.
"Now we shall touch on the matter
of punctuation" — an unintelligible
mutter from the corner.
"I did not catch that." The Professor looked inquiringly towards the
sound.   "Will you repeat it? '
"Did you say that the plural of
'man' is 'mans', or 'mens'?"
"Men, never mans; always men.
There seems to be a prejudice in favor of it."
The Professor seized the rope, but
the window was already open.

Lingnang Varsity
Scholarships Are
Offered Again
From Lingnang University, three
miles from the heart of Canton, on
an island of the Pearl River, cornea
the fascinating offer of a year's free
tuition to a U.B.C. student proceeding
to work In the second or third year.
Geoff Smith, this year's president
of the S.C.M., took advantage of this
exchange scholarship two years ago,
and Is very enthusiastic about its possibilities.
"It gives an opportunity, first, to
travel, which is an education in itself;
secondly, to live with some of the
finest of Chinese students in an intimate way; thirdly, to observe at first
hand the peoples and customs of a
foreign country; and fourthly, to
study Pacific area problems."
This year twenty-five American
students representing Harvard, Stanford, Washington, etc., are ln attendance at Lingnang. Since the majority of lectures are given in English,
the curriculum does not present any
very great difficulties, and full credit
for fifteen units of work may be secured.
As head of the Selection Committee,
Geoff Smith announces the general
qualifications of an applicant as follows: an interest in sports, a second-
class academic standing, a Christian
character and a sincere interest in international problems. Since tuition
and room is provided free of charge,
he cited five hundred dollars as the
minimum expense.
Hinting darkly that Chinese food
had been somewhat of a problem,
Smith admitted there had been certain inconveniences in his stay at
Lingnang, which he would willingly
discuss with any candidate. Summing up his personal experience, he
said:
"My year at Lingnang brought to
me an understanding of Chinese people and their problems, and an appreciation of their culture, with the
realization that Western civilization
is not the only one worthy of consideration, and that it may profit from
contact with the Orient."

CONGRATULATIONS U.E.S.
The University Engineering Society
had an excellent speaker on Thursday. Mr. McLaren gave a very interesting and comprehensive talk on
the evolution of the Transatlantic
Liner. His subtle jokes added greatly
to his talk which was enjoyed by the
large attendance.
The U.E.S. open meeting was exceptionally good. Gordon Cummings'
talk on the Yukon was very interesting. The only point which might be
left open to discussion was in the
statement "The Pelly Indians are of
us use to anybody." John Witbeck'a
talk on Automobile Front-end Suspensions was of popular interest and,
when opening the apeech, the gave
himself "the gong" by hitting the
lamp fixture with the pointer. Hugh
Godards' talk on "Solvent Process for
Lubricating Oils" was very good. Hia

abllty of general educaton for the
majority of grownups.
MORE EDUCATION
"Leisure it the prerequisite of culture and many intellectual Brahmina
art appalled at the prospect of leisure
in ordinary lives. The movement of
education for grownups lias even
more to fear from tho exaggerated
and baseless claims made en its behalf by some of its misguided advocates.
"But there ia no doubt that we are
In for mora universal education. We
shall be lucky ia we succeed in some
sort of effort to direct it"
Here Mr. Rldington devoted a few
minutes to other moans employed to
achieve the end of universal education—among them the Correspondence
School, the Lyceum, the Chutauqua,
proofs of the existence of a widespread hunger for education among
mediocre groups. He touched on
Women's Clubs, night schools, and
university extension lectures.
This survey brought him to the part
played by the library in adult education.
Concluding a short history of the
development of the library system he
stated: "Almost everywhere—Vancouver Is an exception I am sorry to say
—the library Is recognized as an institution In community life."
Mr. Rlddington next explained the
value of this system as it applies to
Universities.
TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
"In college work," he said, "the
professor is, to a large extent, the
suggestor of lines of enquiry personally undertaken by his students and
each involving and exercising qualities of initiative and judgment far
more valuable to the possessor than
any mere acquisition of facts.
"The library is the tree of knowledge from which If we will, we may
pluck the ripe fruit of wisdom."
Mr. Riddlngton concluded his lecture by discussing the application of
these general propositions of education to life in British Columbia and
Vancouver. He strongly condemned
the City Council for blocking library
progress in this city by personal or
political pressure.
"Vancouver should have at least
twelve branch libraries," he declared.
"It is quite evident that those we
have elected to run our city do not
believe that information and inspiration derived from books have any
part in civic welfare."

VARSITY  ROWERS  LEAVE  FOR  CORVALLIS  TODAY
Oregon And Washington
States Are Opposition
For U. B. C. Rowers
Crew Will Include Tom Brown, Alex Macintosh and Wilson MacDuffee
The Rowing Club with the flush of
victory almost coming over them now
and with a raise in status on the
campus are leaving for Corvallis today. In Corvallis they will race Oregon State College on Thursday and
on Saturday they will be in Seattle
where they will race the University
of Washington. The Rowing Club
this year are undertaking a more ambitious project than they have hitherto done.
Rowing, althouh it is little known
on the campus of U.B.C, has been
growing so that the club has one of
the largest memberships of any sport
at the University. With the full support of council and the excellent
coaching, many freshmen rowers
have turned out this year and should
make a first rate rowing tlub nevt
year.
There will be 12 men making the
trip, including coach Tom Bro^vn. The
men are as follows:
Stroke—Bill McLeish—old time rower for Varsity and a first class man.
7—Frank Stevens—smooth stroking
bow man—rowed for several seasons.
6—Gordy Morris—at one time rowed
for V.R.C. and been rowing for Varsity for the last three seasons.
5—Jack West—weighty lad who has
improved very much this >ear and
gained a place because of his steady
stroking.
4—John Jamieson—rooky rower who
has showed up well and who is a
first class man in his stroke side position.
3—Graham Darling—anothsr rookey
who has worked hard for his place.
2—Bob Pearce—another rokey who
worked hard—but who is a "natural"
rower and deserves his position above
others.
In the bow Alex Macintosh, captain, will hold the commanding position.
Wilson MacDuffee is playing a
double part. Due to his ambidexterous ability (he rows both sides) he is
going as spare and due to his managerial ability he is doing the business
part of the trip. Stan Weston is the
other spare going down. —WESTON.
COACH
Professor Brand, coach of the Rowing Club, whose enthusiasm and energetic character has had a great deal
to do with the change in status which
the rowing club have succeeded In
obtaining this year. A great deal Is
due to coach Brand for the Interest
of the freshmen rowers.

Saturday night at the V.A.C. gym,

the Inter-City league title, by a 37-
23 score.
Although the Royal City team got
away to a briliant start, and kept
right in the fight until the end of the
first half, when the score read 21-17
for the Newsies.
In the second period, Chuck Jones'
boys gained an early 8 point lead, and
settled back to play an air-tight defensive game, giving the hard-fighting Adanacs little chance to even up
matters.
The Newsies were paced by elongated ArnleBumstead, and Tony Osborne, a former star Varsity hooper.
Between them they collected a total
of 18 points. Mayers, Matthison, and
Fraser were the pick of the Royalltes.

•   •   •   •
At the completion of this schedule
the class teams having the greatest
number of points in each league will
compete for the championship.
The intra-mural boxing exhibition
will start as soon as possible this

Association held yesterday, called
mainly concerning the status of American football and Ice Hockey on the
campus, full support of the meeting
was given the rowing club when they
asked for the raising of the status of
their club to a sub-major sport.
American football was given no
special rating because it was in the
nature of an experiment but the
awards for this sport was left in the
hands of the awards committee. Ice
Hockey was given a sub-major rating.
Wilson MacDuffue, president of the

j   Correspondence J
Sports Editor, Ubyssey:
For the past season there has been
considerable discussion mixed with
discontented murmurs on the campus
concerning the Managerial system as
applied to Basketball and Hockey. It
seems also that there has been caustic questions asked by members of
those teams this year.
Why they ask are outside influences
playing a principal role in the choosing of the squads—if their cause for
complaining is not unfounded, and
men are being chosen on the U.B.C.
campus through the dictatorial policies of certain organizations, and not
for their Athletic abilities, then these
said groups deserve to be expelled
from the campus.
These organizations, undoubtedly of
great worth, have no place in the life
of a University student, if they do
not endeavor to develop proper good-
fellowship, and sportsmanship.
Now, one may wonder why I at this
time, flay organizations which have
hitherto been exempt from any undue criticism. My reason is based
upon the story given the Vancouver
Province (and particularly to a prom*
inent member of that press who is
an ex-Varsity student), by a player
on one of Varsity's teams.
This player displayed a disgusting
sense of egotistic one-ness, which cast
asperations on the wrong people, as
to why he was not at that ti-ne playing. His statement was such as to infer that the Agriculture faculty was
running the said team—it is to my
knowledge that there is only one
member on the team who is an "Aggie."
My only interest In writing this letter Is to ensure upon this campus, or
at least to endeavor to ensure, real
fellowship and true sportsmanship on
the various representatives of our Alma Mater, and the organization of
those teams.
I would ask my fellow students,
"What has happened to our tiadition-
al fair play?"
Yours hopefully,
"Interested."

Friday noon a sharp-shooting
bunch of hustling basketballers
from Ellensburg State Normal
trounced the local Senior A's
in the final scheduled game of
the season, by a 50-28 score.
The Southerners flashed a
>rilliant attack, and constantly
vorried Varsity forwards on
the defence. Somehow the
U.B.C. basket machine misfired and feebly sputtered
through the whole game. Their
plays and shots were pitifully
weak, and the only department
in which they were effective
was Free-Throwing. Sinking
8 out of 10 free shots, Varsity
hopefuls came near tieing the
world record set by Bunny
Leavitt!
EARLY LEAD
Gaining an early led of 17-8, the
Normalltes illustrated to the few —
very few—faithful spectators just why
they are in second place in the Junior Conference league. Pretty blocking and smart plays gave them a 25-9
lead by the time Referee Al Scrivener
and Timekeeper Joe Rita decided to
give the boys a rest,
The second half, contrary to expectation, was not a repetition of the
first. The University squad came out
on the floor after their severe locker-
room reprimanding by Doc, and
changed their tactics entirely, starting to play real basketball.
SECOND HALF EVEN
Although it was too late to catch
the flying Ellensburgers. the U.B.C.
quintet did succeed in holding them
down through most of the second period. 19 points scored by Varsity to 25
by Ellensburg was the sum total of
their belated efforts. The final score
was 50-28.,
Hall, Boersma, and Faust of the
visitors' first string team were the
most effective members of the E.S.N.
collecting 8 points each. Pringle and
Lucas were the only ones on the Collegiate team who found the hoop
with regularity, sinking 12 and 5
points respectively.
Bless my soul!
Ellensburg—
Hall 8, Bustine, Boersma 3, Faust 8.
Sanders 3, Vandenbrink 6, Rooney 4.
Pettit 7, Drouetts 6.   Total—50.
Varsity—Pringle 12, Lucas 5, Berry
3, Patmore, Hardwick 3, Davis 2, Detwiller 2, Ridland 1.   Total—28.
