Medical Profession
To Absorb Healers
Predicts Dr. Haywood
«•_______—a——m——_-_——a.—__a—_-   .
Otleopofnes Already Absorbed—Chiroprac*
tors Menace To Medical Profession Says
Absorption of healing cults by ths medical profession was
prophegled by Dr. A. K. Haywood, superintendent of the Vancouver General Hospital, in tracing the higtory of the cults at
• meeting of the Vancouver Institute, in Arts 100 on Saturday*
evening. *
Osteopaths, he said, already were being absorbed. This
cult, when founded in 1892, held that all dlaeaseg were due to
maladjustment of the spine, which affected blood circulation.
They claim to be able to cure anything by adjusting the spinal
vertebrae. Hut nowadays osteopathy was admitted to be
•gimply "a theory of one cauge of gome digeageg."
' ♦        ■... dv    -."  ,.
Osteopaths had broadened out.
They had embraced practically the
entire field of medical practice. Thou*
schools, giving a tour year course
and requiring high school standing
for admission, were simply second
class medical schools.
As osteopaths became more con*
servative, chiropractors had taken
away from them the patients attracted by the "cure-all" feature, and
the chiropractors had prospered so
mightily that they were now the
largest healing cult hi the United
States, where there was one chiropractor to every ten physicians.
Chiropractic Deluge 1919-1923
Chiropractic spread with great
rapidity from 1914 to 1923. Then
growth slowed off till 1927. Now it
ia declining again. In 1920 there
were 79 chiropractice schools; in lvtf
there were 4% -now there are 21.
"I think," said Dr. Haywood, "that
chiropractice now stands where osteopathy did 15 years ago . We may
similarly expect it to broaden until
it becomes practically a medical system."
The theory of chiropractice is
strikingly similar to that of osteopathy. All ills are believed to be
due to dislocation of the spine, which
causes the vertebras to press on tne
nerves between them. Adjustment
of the spine by the "chiropractic
thrust" is the cure.
Chiropractic Theory Fallacious
Such a theory, said Dr. Haywood,

President Urges
More Enthusiasm
At Frosh Meeting
Results of the Frosh Elections on
Friday at noon saw Jean Lowrie take
the post of Secretary, Margaret Buchanan, Literary Representative,
Gordy "Horses" Douglas take the
position of Men's Athletic Representative, and Kay Bourne that of Women's Athletic Representative.
In opening the session Bill Lynott,
the new president, called again for
greater class spirit. "You may have
been merely a class before but you
must remember that you are now
an organisation, and conduct yourselves as such."
The president also stated that the
class spirit aa a whole was deplorable, and reminded his listeners that
the Freshmen class was the source
of U.B.C.'s future graduates. "Although we hear on all sides that
class spirit as a whole is on the decline, 1 for one do not believe it,
and it's up to the class of '36 to get
out and prove that I'm right," he
The matter of where the class
party was to be held was discussed
next. The choice was either the Pet ir
Pan Ballroom or Lester Court. It
was decided that as there were only
284 In Arts '36, while the Peter Pan
had accomodations for 350, being
also centrally situated, it was tha
better place for the occasion. The
date is set for Friday, February 3,
and all members of '36 who intend
to attend the affair were urged to
pay their fees promptly, either to
the new Treasurer, Harry Jackson, or
Jack Shaneman. The draw system
will be employed.
Pep Club
Bids Open
To a Few
The Pep Club has come forward with
a request that all Interested Freshmen and Sophomores make application for membersshlp In the Club. It
has been found that there Is more
work than can be conviently handled by the present quota.
Each member is assigned certain
work to perform, and several occupations are still open with none to
fill them, such aa sign painters, stage
hands, etc., and assistants at the pep
Those who ln their own opinion
have plenty of Wlm, Wlgor, and Wl-
tallty, are urged to put in their applications, which must be in at the
latest by Friday. They should be
made in writing and addressed to
the Pep Club, Arts Letter Rack.
Pep Club members are always assured oi a good time—besides back-
stagers are in an excellent position
for observing talent.
The object of the Pep Club Is to
promote student spirit an., enthusiasm on the campus and at important
games. It Is generally recognized
that the present group is particularly
successful in its endeavors towards
this end, and have several great pep
successes to their credit. " Come on
prospective pepsters!"

Second Spasm
The staff of Vancouver's Home
Newspaper is having a hectic time
these days. Scarcely had they »i-
cuperated from the shock of watching the Ubyssey staff handle their
paper last Tuesday than another
happy band of embrio journalists arrived to do their stuff . That was
yesterday. The newcomers—parents
of the "University of Washington
Daily"—spent the day hi spying out
the land, several visiting our Pub at
noon, apropos of bringing out the
first three editions of today's Sun
compliant with their own Ideas of
journalism. In the Ubyssey sanctum they posed for numerous pictures.
The visitors, twenty strong, have
come up from Seattle by auto. They
are all students of the faculty of
journalism at their college, and the
Dean, Vernon McKenzie, has accompanied them. Their labours will
form an interesting contrast with
those of the Ubyssey stafl on January 17, and the subject is expected
to inspire copious letters to the editor of the Sun In the near future, to
the greater glory of one of the inky

Discontent Causes
Staff Resignations
On Eastern Weekly
Fredericton, N. B., (CLP.) - Disagreement concerning policy was denied to be the cause of the resignation here to-day of the staff of the
Brunswickton, weekly undergraduate
publication of the University of New
Brunswick. Although the action came
as a surprise to the general public
here, lt was intimated that the occurrence had been gradually led up
to by previous events.
Before resigning, the staff passed
a motion asking, for the resignations
of the associate editors-in-chief, Fred
Fenety and Frank Wetmore, and the
appointment in their place of Carl
Watson, sports editor. A report submitted to the StudenftV Council was
adopted. Donald W. Swift waa reappointed business manager and re-

Perry and Dryer Have Decisive Victories
Over Stanford and California State University—Audiences Enthusiastic
Intercollegiate Debaters Logo Contest With Saskatchewan and
Manitoba 24 and 5-0.
Returning home Monday from their trip to California, Nail
Perry and Vic Dryer, U.B.C.'a international debaters, brought
with them undisputed title to Pacific Coast forensic laurels. The
boys won decisive victories at Palo Alto over Stanford, and St
Berkeley over California State University. Their subject was

"We want the HI Jinx to be a
wonderful success so every one
please turn out," aaid Dorothy
Thompson at the W.U.S. meeting on
Monday noon. The Hi Jinx whloh
is a masquerade party for girls is to
be held on Thursday, January 26,
in the Oym. from 7:45 to 10:30 p.m.
The party is very Informal and allows everybody to get acquainted.
Out of town girls axe especially
asked to come.
Each class will present a sto~t
skit and a prize is offered for the
best. Everyone ia asked to corns in
fancy dress and prizes will be gl 'en
to the best couple, to the prettlat,
to the most original and to the fwti-
nlest. Music will be provided xnd
the girls will be able to dance d
they wish. Admission to the Hi Jinx
is 25c.
Dorothy Thompson also announced
that ln future any woman found
smoking on the campus will be
asked to appear before the Council.
Dean Bollert said that she had collected some clean, wearable old
clothes and asked everybody to let
her know If they knew anyone who
needed clothes.
Who with Stenton composed the Alberta team. Both of these debaters
are law students.
Will the girl who took my notebook. Analytical Geometry, and Pre-
cieuse Ridicules, from the Lower

The preliminary try-outs for the
Spring Play took place on Friday,
January 20. The members of the
Players' Club aspiring to parts in this
production had gone to some trouble
hi rehearsing their parts and the
judges' task was not an easy one. A
final assignment of all parts will be
made on Wednesday, January 25,
'when the final try-outs are held.
Those remaining in the running are
follows:  Bill Sargent and Cyril
Chave for Poirot, the great French
detective who solves the baffling
crime and who is the principal character of the play. Betty Wilson for
Caryl,    Francis   Mclntyre,    Beulah
in Hotel Vancouver against Manitoba
University were net as successful. Ne-
ments and Brown lost the verdict ia
tiie prairie city by a vote of two to
one, while Whimster and Millar were
defeated by a five nothing score. In
both these debates the toplo under dls-
eusslon wu "Resolved that this house
disapproves of Governments invading
the rights of Individuals."
No Judges in Southern Debate
'There were not judges to either
debate," stated Neil Perry, "as it seems
to be tho custom in the States to entrust the decisions to the audience in
tiie case of international competitions.
At Stanford the American team was
asked to retract certain statements by
angry hecklers and we received a ten-
to-one decision over our opponents."
In both debates, the British Columbia boys met talented opposition. At.
Berkeley, their competitors Were
Frank Fullenwider and Joseph Fessio,
experienced public speakers. Fullenwider is known in the Pjjcffic Southwest for his notable worii in the
Hoover campaign of 1932, while Fessio,
although facing his first international
competition is considered as a first
class campus orator.
The Importance attached to the
debate by the Callfornlans was
well exemplified by the fact that
Hon. A. C. Charleton, British Consul General for San Francisco, was
asked to take the chair.
Warm Reception Accorded
Nell Perry was particularly struck
by the warm reception accorded to
the visitors in Palo Alto and in Berke-
ly. "Following both the debates," states
Neil, "people came up on the platform to shake hands with us and speak
to us. Our welcome at Berkeley was
even greater than at Palo Alto, because there were a large number, of
Canadians among the audience."
When to Berkeley, Perry and Dryer
resided at International House, a
building donated by J. D. Rocke-
feller Jr. for the exclusive use of
foreign students visiting to the city.
The House is duplicated nowhere else
In the world except New York, and
as Perry stated, "We felt most fortunate in receiving the full privileges of celebrities."

keeper, is now studying in Toronto,
and his role will be played to the
forthcoming production by Bill
Buckingham, who recently scored in
a Little Theatre production. Miss-
Davis was a member of the Class of

Next Pridty noon the students will be asked to approve a
plan lor raising tiie necessary monies to re-drain the Stadium
gtte and make the field one of which the Univergity oan be proud
to invite teamg to play upon.
litre are two plans which wiU be put before the students.
The first Is tiie time-honoured, but gUghtly out-worn plan of
caution money waivers. The second it to pass a resolution asking
the Board of Governors' to make a compulsory levy of one dol-
•Ur from the caution money of etch studsnt. Of the two, the
latter seems the better.
At tiie time of writing President Klinck had not been approached to get an inkling of how the Board will treat the proposal. The Ubyssey wishes to add its appeal to that of the students in general for the Board to consider the action of the Alma
Mater Society (if the necessary motion is passed).
Many reasons could be put forward for the second plan of a
compulsory levy. Of these the most cogent is that it is far simp-
ler, both for the students'and for the Bursar's office. All the
worry and bother of obtaining individual signatures would be
dispensed with and the individual bookkeeping entries elimin-
We mentioned in .our last editorial on this subject, that the

are patently ashamed? We need the field fixed, we want the

Since the arrival of our annual winter blanket of snow,
there has appeared on the campus the inevitable students suffering, from such excessive "joi de vivre" that they must break
windows and interrupt lectures and meetings.
We do not. want Iff appear spoil sports, but nevertheless we
would like to suggest that there is plenty of room for throwing
snowballs and having snow-fights without the usual tinkle of
broken glass.
If students would only stop to realize that it is quite possible to do infinitely more damage than the mere breaking of a
small pane of glass, there might be some hope of a betterment
of conditions. Particularly is this the case where the applied
science, agriculture, and science buildings are concerned.
Think of the destruction which might be caused by a snowball going through a window in the science building and smashing gome specially prepared research apparatus or upsetting
bottles of acid over students' hands and clothing. Is the risk
worth the fun?
Show a little consideration and act as if you were university students, not over-exuberant morons.

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
To what purpose was the recent
lecture of Dr. Nitobe? After listening to his address for an nour, I was
still none the wiser as to the situation to the East. Beyond touching
on a few trivial causes, Dr. Nitobe
did not give any reason that justified Japan's recent actions. It is true
that he stated It was too delicate a
aubject for -.scussion, but that is
only his opinion.
It appears to me that the real
cause .of the war ia anxiety on the
part of the financial interests In
Japan. Because they have capital
invested In Manchuria, and because
they wish to control the natural resources of the province, they seine
upon the first opportunity possible
to declare war in order to secure
their capital. Even although Manchuria was in a state of chaos, order
could have been restored by thr>
League of Nations In a much less
sanguinary manner. Because the
capitalists of Japan were unwilling
to await the action of the League,
does not justify their action. Therefore, in my humble opinion, these
same wealthy men of Nippon are little better than murderers, since they
have incited the alwaya eager Japanese army to take the course which
has resulted in so much slaughter.
Let us look at the matter from an
impartial   standpoint,   and   not   be

Announced at LA.
Los Angeles, Jan, 89.—Discovery ot
a process by whloh it Is possible to
make a mirror that will reflect as
high as 94 per cent of light Is announced by Dr, Hiram W. Edwards,
associate professor ot physics, on the
Los Angeles campus of the University of California. He has prepared
metallic mirror surfaces which show
unusually high reflection throughout
the visible light. It is expected the
discovery will prove of considerable
value to science, especially so in various optical instruments where front
surfaces of high reflecting powar arc
Aluminum and magnesium are used
by Dr. Edwards in the process which
entails the evaporation of these metals in a vacuum where they are deposited upon glass. Mirrors made by
this process are believed to be mote
durable than mirrors now generally
ln use, and make for economy In
the saving of light,energy because
of the high efficiency in reflection.
During his investigation Dr. Edwards found that surfaces made
from pure aluminum reflected 89.3
per cent of light for each of three

On Kissing
by Gerald Prevost
The other day I made an essay r.t
kissing according to the rules of
English Two. I found the rules so
helpful thst I propose to give them
to the world with the addition of
comments taken from my recent experience.
(1) "The essay is not attempted
with tne idea of instruction* or exhortation, but for pleasure." This is
fundamental. One must have the
right attitude. Don't kiss Instructively, don't kiss hortatlvely, don't
kiss sen -consciously, kiss for pleasure. Be sure, also, that you choose
a pleasant subject. Remember that
"gentlemen prefer blondes," but
"brunettes prefer gentlemen."
(2) "The essay is unorganized. It
rambles from point to point at tho
author's pleasure." Quite! My essay was not organized at all. We
were sitting snugly on the chesterfield when the fire glinted on her
face and she seemed to smile. After
that I managed very well without
organisation ... As for that rambling business, I find It may be done,
but caution ia advised. It should
never be attempted with red-haired
(3) "The essayist Is an arm-chair
philosopher." Yes, an arm-chair is
nice, but why confine yourself to
it? Sally and I do very well on a
chesterfield ,and I am assured that
hammocks, mossy banks, rumble
seats and fence sails also give good
(4) "The essay," Quoting Dr. Johnson, "Is a loose sally - the mind."
Why, uoctor, how could you? You
naaasty man! "A loose sally," indeed!  My Sally Is not at att loose!
(8) "The essayist is ehtefly interested in style." I doubt this; I think
most « us have our minds on re-
suits. But to the stylishly inclined
I give tiie following hints: (a) look
soumdly toto her eyas; (b) sigh
deeply; (c) draw her gently towards
you with a hypnotic look (if you
not do this, use your hands); (d) tilt
her chin upward with your left hand
(N.B.—This must on no account be
omitted. If she is taller than you,
get a stool); (e) put your right arm
round her shoulders; (f) take aim;
(g) bend forward gracefully from the
neck; ,-. make contact; (i) maintain a firm pressure as long as your
breath lasts; (J) repeat ad lib.
(0) "The subjects of the essay are
the commonplaces of life." My Sally
commonplace? She's the dearest,
sweetest, most wonderful thing in
all creation. When her blue eyes
shine into mine, when her golden
curls tickle my cheek, when her lips
pout, when . . . well, anyway, she's
NOT commonplace.
(7) "The essayist is detached from
the subject." Not at all, sir, not at
all. The closer the attachment the
(8) "The essayist usually makes
use of allusions and references."
Worth trying, but be careful, maybe
she is not that kind of girl.
(9) "The essay makes no pretence
of exhausting tiie full capacities of
the subject." Er—perhaps I had better not commit myself on this point.
But there are some who wonder,
with Byron, "if nothing follows all
this palming work."

Here Is a book that at last has
universal appeal. Tne stories contained within its voluminous bulk
are innumerable; that is, we got
tired after counting the first twenty-
three. The space is taken up mainly
by Illustrations, posed by handsome
men and beautiful women. However, these pictures seem to change
with bewildering rapidity-the heroine (I presume it is the heroine that
is shown to us so many times) is
sometimes blond, and sometimes
brunette. No less than five times
she appears as a red-head. The hero
undergoes similar changes. The
Company explains that this rather
confusing result is the outcome of
their noble action in giving a lot of
little jobs to hundreds of artists,
rather than letting one artist do the
whole thing. Very commendable,
says I.
There Is not much plot to the
story, but there is plenty of reading matter. And before I forget, let
me warn you that quite a few of
the illustrations show the heroine
to various stages of negligee. I do
not consider the book Immoral to
any great extent, but I would not
consider It suitable reading for the
Freshman class.

Tha medical profession has dens
its best to get rid of chiropractors.
"It Is a danger to let them practise,"
the speaker declared. "They do net
believe in diagnosis. Consequently
they may let people dig who could
have been cured fi their trouble tied
bean properly diagnosed and treated
y a qualified physician."
Oreesf Invents Chirepraetlos
fir. Haywood explained that chiropractice began to IMS. Its alleged
discoverer, 0. fi. Palmer, ha. prev-
iously been a grocer and a magnetic
healer. His son, B. J. Palmer, had
developed ''The Palmer School cf
Chiropractice'' into a big business.
This school, from whloh more than
00 per cant of the ehlropraetors to
America had been graduated, did
not require its students to have even
a high school education. Ihe course
included ssiasmanshlp and advertising. Fees were $4M for 11 months,
with "50 per cent discount for cash."
Chiropractice had seen the same
conflict between the "straights", and
the "mixers" as mere was ta osteopathy. The Palmer School waa a
great tores to holding them to the
rigid theory ef one eauat and one
cure for all diseases. But to the last
two years the school has lost influence and the tendency is for ehlropraetors to take over many of the
methods of the medical profession
and call themselves "drugless physicians."
Naturopaths and McFadden
Another cult mentioned by Dr.
Haywood ware the naturopaths.
They have no single theory of disease, but they disdain drugs and operations and say that it is necessary
to employ only the beneficient forces
of nature, sunlight, fresh air and so
on., but as a man can go out in thc
sun without paying any doctor's
fees, the naturopaths are more likely to use electrical treatments and
the chiropractic thrust.
One of the most prominent naturopaths is Bernarr McFadden, editor
of "Physical Culture" and other
magazines. "He," said Dr. Haywood,
"is almost a cult in himself. The
most critically Ul man to the General
Hospital during the smallpox epidemic last year got that way because
he followed McFadden'a advice
against vaccination. I wish I could
read you the letter he wrote to McFadden afterward, but there are
ladies present."
Sanoptactots Same As Naturopaths
Differing from the naturopaths
only to name are the aanopreotors.
Nearly 600 of them flourish to Washington State, because a certain "degree mill" down there had an ar-
rangetnent with a state official to
allow the candidates to see the examination papers before they wrote
them. This scandal was discovered,
Dr. Haywood said, and the licences

It was explained that last year
Malcolm Ross was elected editor-

said he found lt impossible to spare
the time required, and Fred Fenety
and Frank Wetmore were appointed
aasoclate editors-in-chief to carry on.

This, however, waa not done satisfactorily, it was charged by certain
members of the staff, with the result
that the two editors-in-chief were
said to have lost control of the management with much of the responsibility to this connection developing
on others. This was a "very mistaken idea," Fenety declared tonight,
adding that neither he nor Wetmore
had heard about the matter until
afterward, and that then they were
not informed of lt by any authoritative source.

Christian Scientists
Finally, Dr. Haywood dealt with
the Christian Science healers. *ue
Christian Science teaching is that
of evils, Including disease and pain,
are illusions of the mind. Each scientist Is supposed to try to cure
himself, but if he fails a healer may
be called to. Few of these healers
devote all their time to practice, and
90 per cent of them are women. They
work by suggestion.
Dr. Haywood stated that the Christian Science theory is rarely driven
to the breaxtog point. For Instance,
Mrs. Eddy, the founder, had early
been compelled to realize that something more than metaphysical treatment was needed in chlldmrth.
Christian Scientists also usually came
to doctors for such things as bone
fractures and tooth-ache, accepted
vaccination and were amenable to
quarantine. In general, he thought
he could say that their antagonism
to medical treatment was growing
less marked.
Great laughter was caused after
Dr. Haywood's speech when one of
the audience, pointing out the paramount necessity of a sound constitution, said: "My advice to a man
is to get good grandparents."
Dr. Gordon Shrum, president of
the institution, announced that Mr.
R. J. Cromie, publisher of the Vancouver Sun, is to speak next Saturday. He hinted that Mr. Cromie's
subject would be "Technocracy."

U.B.C. Coed
Goes 70' 6"
Varsity Defeats Old
Enemies In 38-24 Win
At VeA.C. Saturday
Adanacs Unable To Withstand Varsity's
Passing Attack—-Team-work Improved-
Mayers Scores 14 Points
Spurred by the fact that they were opposing their traditional enemies, the Adanacs. Oordio Allen's Senior A basket-
bailers showed something like their old form Saturday night
to triumph over the Royal City squad by a score of 38-24. Ihe
game took place at V. A. C. after the Sparlingg-V.A.C. game
in which the Storemen consolidated their lead by a 44-30 win
over the Clubbers.
Varsity got away to a good start, and Osborne scored three
points before Mayers dropped onee>
in for the Adanacs. Baskets by Matthison and Osborne and two by
"Hooker" Wright pushed the Blue
and Oold lead up to IM. At this
point, the Royal City boys tried a
new formation, putting Cy Lee and
Wally Mayers on tho forward line
and replacing Shiles by Bill Gifford.
Jimmy Bardsley took Rann Matthi-
son's place on the Varsity forward
Varsity Takes Big Lead
The Adanacs were the first to
score after the switched lineups, Cy
Lee breaking through on a solo effort to score a pretty basket. However, arslty were showing nice
combination and Bob Osborne batted to two rebounds while "Pi"
Campbell was combining with Ken
Wright for another score. The Adanacs sent Shiles back toto the game,
but had to be satisfied with one
score by Stew Gifford while Bardsley and Wright accounted for four
more points.
Mayers broke away for two characteristic solo scores to bring the
Royal City boys a little closer at 21-
10. At this stage, the Adanacs sent
d'Easum into the battle in place of
Stew Gifford. Before the period
ended, Varsity scored again through
Bardsley on a man-in-the-hole play.
The half finished as d'Easum's shot
rimmed the hoop and fell out. Th«
Blue and Gold carried a 23-10 lead
into the second stanza.
Second Half Closer
The Adanacs showed more of their
old form in the second half, and
Varsity was only able to Increase its
lead by one point during the period.
Shiles opened the scoring with a
basket from the side, but "Pi"
Campbell and Jimmy Bardsley passed
their way through the opposing defence for Campbell to7 neutralise
Shiles' score. Varsity's checking was
good and the Adanacs were forced
to depeno on solo efforts, usually by
Mayers, to Increase their total.
Laurie Nicholson scored the next1
basket on a combination play, but
fell heavily as he shot, and was replaced by Matthison. Bardsley covered the centre court to his place.
From here on, until near the finish,
each team scored alternately. Mayers
broke through centre for a basket
which Ken Wright equalized at the
other end when he scored on his
own rebound. A minute later, Shiles
scored two fouls, only to have Rann
Matthison drop one to at the other
end. McEwan followed with a long
shot, but Matthison got a foul and
CampbeU combined with Bardsley
for a basket to more than level the
Adanac player's score.
Mayers Effective
With the game neartog the finish,
Mayers broke through for three baskets interspersed by a score on a
long shot by Osborne. Then, with
about three minutes to play, Coach
Allen sent to Bardsley and Nicholson
for Rann Matthison and Dick Wright,
and shortly after, replaced Ken
Wright by Tommy Mansfield.
When the game was nearly over,
Max Shiles, Adanac veteran, was
forced out of the game with a twisted shoulder. He was replaced by
Stew Gifford. The scoring was completed a moment later when Nicholson scored on a pass from Bardsley.
Varsity showed some pretty combination during the game, and each
passing attack usually resulted in a
basket. The boys looked like another team from that which lost to
Province on Wednesday. Their tea*n
spirit seems to have returned, and
should aid them when they meet
V.A.C. at Westminster on Wednesday. For Adanacs, Mayers was the
big noise, scoring 14 of his teams
24 points. Osborne topped the Varsity marksmen with 11 points.
The teams: Varsity—Osborne (1U.

Varsity men and women athletes have often been before
the public eye and have won considerable renown in various
branches of sport. Their accomplishments, however, have been
mostly in the nature of team victories. Ag teams, they have captured Intercollegiate, a Canadian and a World Championship. As,
individuals, the student athletes have not been so prominent in
the sport world. It is true that men such as Dr. Harry Warren
and Duncan McNaughton have achieved International fame after
leaving U. B. C, but until now, no athlete of world prominence
has been developed while a student.
Now, however, we have enrolled at Varsity a World record holder. Last Friday night at the Lower Mainland Swimming
Gala, Dorothy Rennie of the Varsity team reached a distance of
seventy feet six inches in the plunge to break a record held in
England since 1920. The old record was broken by more than
two feet, while more than four feet were added to the best previous Canadian performance. We would like to extend our congratulations to Miss Rennie and to express the hope that her accomplishment Friday night may be only the fore-runner of
future achievements. Congratulations are also due to Norman
Cox, who coached the record-breaker both before she attended
Varsity and as a member of the Varsity teem.
Comments On Interclass Sport
By Dick Elson
Plunging over seventy feet on Friday evening at the Crystal Pool, Dorothy Rennie broke the Canadian record by over four feet and the world's
record by more than two feet. Her
distance in the event was within two
and a half feet of the Men's All-Canadian record.
Besides the glory of breaking the
record, Dorothy will receive the J.
W. Paxman Challenge Cup, now held
by Gladys Munro of the White Rock
Here at Vanity, since Interclass
sport was organised four years ago. a
• very large percentage of studenta have
been participating In athletics. This
Is certainly a promising sign of growing University spirit.
However, Just because these sens
of the real thing are appearing, It Is
no reason why we should let it go at
that. Personally I believe that it Is our
duty as students of U. B. C. to give
Interclass athletics every possible effort of support
There Is one fact that we must realize. The University of British Columbia Is situated twelve hundred miles
from the nearest Canadian University. Because of the great distances
between the two schools, and because
of present economic conditions, Canadian Intercollegiate sport Is at stand-
Freshman Wins
Badminton Cop
Varsity's Badminton Club flashed
toto prominence last week when Oliver Lacey, tricky freshman shuttle
star, won the Boy's Singles championship at the Mid-Island tournament
held to Duncan. Lacey won the
event without serious difficulty, and
earned the distinction of being the
only Vancouver player to return
with a cup.
Ken Atkinson, Varsity's other representative at the tournament, also
made a good showing. He and Lacey
teamed together to the Men's Doubles, and reached the semi-finals only
to lose a closely-fought match for
the championship.
Ihe club executive wish to remind
the students that badminton is to
full swing on the campus once more,
and prospective members may play
all season for a $2.00 fee.

take Its place.
Naturally Interclass sport Is the only
other alternative.
Therefore, If we let this die out we
are going to seriously undermine one
of the really fine things we get from
a University, appreciation of true amateur snort.
During the last week, happenings
to the interclass basketball world have
come to a temporary standstill. However, thia week promises to show one
darn good contest ... the Frosh versus the Juniors.
Next Friday, I will get hold of a list
of forthcoming interclass basketball
games, with dates of games, and have
it published. This should prove valuable to Class Athletic Representatives.
With about throe months' diligent
divot-digging behind them, the U.B.-
C. Golf Club, headed by President
Bill Castleton, leave for Seattle tn
about three weeks to tackle the
strong Washington Husky eight to
their annual . inter-collegiate encounter.
"Our chances are bettor than ever
this year," stated tha President m
an exclusive interview today. "We
have never before had a squad of
such low handicap men, and I am
sure that with B. G. Amateur finalists and City Champions on our roster we oan give the Huskies lots of
opposition." i     "
Number one team for the match
will in all probability be Ted Charlton and Charlie MoCaddep. Ted will
be remembered for rus fine performances la the B. C. Amateur last summer, whan he advanced to the semifinals, only -to be nosed out by tho
ultimate winner, Stan Leonard, Charlie McCadden haa probably held the
U.B.C. title more times than any

Plenty of First-class Materiel Training For
Spring Events—440 Men and Broad-
jumpers Strong.
It may come as a revelation to many students to know that
the University of B. C. possegses gome of the finest track and
field material in the Province. Track and field, eggentially a
aummer sport, does not come into its own until March, and by
that time the term is nearly finished. Therefore it is only to
be expected that men who are fast on their pins, contribute their
time and work to other sports throughout the winter.       	
Thug it is, some of Varsity's best cinder men are at present
starring to basketball,   to   English, of first class 440 sprinters, rendering
All boys on the squad will be
obliged to practice three days a

the Washington campus. With this
training behind them, "Cassy" is confident that his proteges will reverse
the decisions of former years, in
which the home crew has been more
or less mopped up.
rugby, soccer and ice-hockey. But
every spring there comes a tune
when these men sharpen their spikes
for a shot at the cinder game, and
now that time is drawing pretty
close. With this to mind, and with
the knowledge of abundance of material in every branch of the sport,
the U.B.C. Track and Fisld Club are
confidently facing their biggest season.
Outstanding In this department we
have Harold Wright, Canadian Olympic ace, who was a team-mate of
Bert Pearson and Percy Williams
and who managed to reach the semifinals in both sprints at Los Angeles.
Due to inclement weather and sodden track, Wright never had a chance
to show his wares last fall, but his
work this spring should be a treat
to watch. Barred from inter-collegiate competition, Harold will participate only In local inter-dub meets,
Then there is Bill Stott, the Commerce flyer, capable of a pretty consistent 10 2-5 for the century, and
there's Max Stewart who can clip
off the 100 and 220 in good figures
any time. Lyle Wilson nnl George
Francis, freshmen sprinters are two
good bets for the shorter distance,
while Bill Crothall and Don Mc-
Tavish are strong in the furlong.
Never in the life of this institution

we have Max Stewart, McTavish,

"Comets" Default
To Intermediates
Intermediate B basketers advanced
two points in the second half of the
V. and D. schedule when Comets defaulted to them Friday night. With
the team that Is now on hand it is
believed that Varsity has an excellent chance of winning the second
half. Meralomas, the winners of the
first half, after defeating Varsity
once, will then play Varsity for the
title. Those turning out for Friday
night's game, when a snappy practice was run off instead, were aa follows: Dave Hunden, J. Rlchardsort,

Athletic representatives are advised
to take note of the Cross Country

Weight Events
At the present moment, thanks lo
Haddon Agnew, husky Science-man
and Junior Olympic ace, Varsity
holds the Western inter-collegiate
discus record. Agnew established the
new mark last fall, when he tossed
the big platter 124 feet 8 inches into
the ether before it split the turf.
Haddon will prove a pretty hard
man to beat this spring in his favorite event, but B. Goumeniouk and
Stradiotti will give him plenty to
worry about. Keith Hedreen, another discus expert, will be unable
to compete this spring, owing to minor injuries.
In the shot-put, Varsity will be
strongly represented by Agnew, versatile performer that he is, Goumeniouk and Stradiotti. Goumeniouk
finds the javelin event especially tc

Freshettes Win
In Basketball
The Arts '36 women's inter-class
basketball team proved too strong
for the Arts '33 squad, and rolled
their way to a 11-4 victory to an inter-class struggle Friday. Ihe Freshettes had things all their own way
in the first half, and rolled to 7
points without reply from the Seniors. The '33 lassies were completely at sea during this period, and gave
the first year girls little opposition.
The second stanza saw a much
closer battle, with both teams scoring four points. Arts '33 were the
first to score, and dropped in tw<>
baskets without reply. However, tho
Freshettes were not content to let
