PROVOCATIVE
"One of the best subjects sver debated by Western Canadian universities; well balanoed, and provoking great interest throughout the
oountry," said Bernard Reed, President of the Parliamentary Forum
when questioned by the Ubyssey on
the merits of the topic.
Judges for the local debate will be

"Every second the sun spews out
enough energy to reduce its mass by
four million tons," claimed Dr. Kenneth C. Mann of the Department of
Physics In an address to the Royal
Astronomical Society of Canada last
Tuesday night.
He elaborated upon this statement
telling his audience that the sun

Tales of heroism and human suffering on the torpedoed luxury liner
Athenia were recounted to members
of the Varsity Christian Union last
Friday noon by C. O. Bone, one of
the passengers,
"The scene on board was indescribable," Mr. Bone told his listeners.
"We were faced with eternity without
warning. For the first ten minutes it
seemed that there would be no possible chance of escape."
Stating that God's presence gave
him courage and strength under the
shadow of death, the speaker told of
rowing for ten hours In a heavy sea
before rescue came.
Mr. Bone, placed ln charge of some
220 persons ln the hold of the rescue
ship "City of Flint," was able to give
spiritual aid to many of the victims.
of Mt. Allison
Anti-Wa* Views of
A  little less than a  month
newspaper, The Ubyssey, were
Ediiorial
ago  the editors of your campus
alone, in the entire Dominion of
Canada, in their objection to a coalition of the two national student
organizations, the National Federation of Canadian University
Students nnd the Canadian Student Assembly.
At that time our opinion, expressed here on December 8, was
quoted, in a nation-wide survey by the McOill Daily to tho following effects "The union of the C.S.A. and the N.F.C.U.S. would
accomplish nothing. It is the opinion bf this writer that it is both
unnecessary and unwise to join these two groups under one name
chiefly because the aims of eaoh are separate from and supplementary to one another.
"The N.F.C.U.S. is a representative organization which draws
its members from the administrative bodies of the Universities
across the Dominion. It is primarily interested in matters which
come under the influence of the Students' Council at the various
institutions.
"The C.S.A., however, is a body with different Ideas, different
objects and different personnel. Delegates to the Conferences are
drawn from all activities on a campus, and the matters placed on
the C.S.A. agenda are broad and vaguely worded.
"It Is true that the two organizations are discussing University matters, but It would be impossible to'expect the N.F.C.U.S.
to submerge its important practical problems in a sea of general
problems under the C.S.A. Similarly it would be worse than stupid
to attempt solutions to difficulties of student government with a
large and unwieldy group of delegates with marked variations of
interest."
Today, in the light of common fact, it would appear that not
only waa the C.S.A. composed of a large and unwieldy group of
delegates with marked variations of interests and a broad and
vaguely worded agenda, incapable of handling the practical problems of student life; it also appears that the C.S.A. might have
become a dangerous organ of subversive minority opinion which
can no longer lay nny claim to connection with or support from
nny Canadian University or the students thereof.
Wo sincerely congratulate the recent action of tho Mount Allison students, and Dean Krug of that university.
Fnr from being merely incapable of hnndling practical problems, members of this supposed representative orgnnizntion, the
C.S.A., seem to be capable only of an indecent assault on their
own sense of right and liberty, of public responsibility and courage, things for which many young men with far less privileges
than they have mortgaged themselves, life nnd limb, to protect as
members of His Majesty's Canadian Forces.
MacTavish Speaks On "The War Outlook"
French   And   British   Unity   Achieved
•  •  • •  •  •
Through preparation for protracted war
"No words can express, no'
minds can grasp the scope, duration or extent of this war," Mr.
W. L. MacTavish, chief editor of
the Vancouver Daily Province,
told the Vancouver Institute on
Saturday, January 18, In Arts 100.
Speaking on "The War Outlook,"
Mr. MacTavish, without revealing his
own opinion, presented a oold analysis of the present European conflict
for the consideration of his audience.
In reality, he said, all nations of
the world are Involved ln the present
conflict. Although the United Statea
is nominally at peaoe, her whole
economy Is war economy.
Analysing the three principle antagonists, England, France and Germany, Mr. MacTavish noted the universal use of propaganda, subjecting
all people to both wishful and fearful
thinking.
COMPARISON OF STRENGTH
"Germany's army and navy are no
more powerful now than in 1814 but
her air force is the strongest in the
world. Her economic strength, ot
vital importance in modern warfare,
ls below that of twenty-five yeara ago.
It is wrong to think the Allies can
easily subdue the enemy. It ls necessary to mobilise all foroes and to use
them carefully," he observed.
Stressing the importance of the
Empire to Great Britain in this war,
he said that all the dominions have
been mustering their resources since
the beginning of the war, deliberately
and carefully planning for a protracted war.
UNITY ACHIEVED
"The threat of war brought the
usually divided Frenoh government to
move with a single minded purpose.
Her vaat resources of troops In North
Africa and the famed Maglnot Line
are two moat formidable factors," he
said.
Pointing out that Italy's attitude to
the war Is one of the mam keys of
the "War 'Outlook," MacTavish observed that Chamberlain triumphed
by weaning Mussolini away from the
Rome-Berlin Axis.
THEATRE OF WAR
"It is very likely," he said, "that the
theatre of war will be the Balkan
States and the Danube valley. This,
however, depends on Hitler's ability
to influence Stalin to form a Ruaa-
Nasti alliance.
"We have," concluded Mr. MacTavish," embarked on a war ln a Just
cause, a war that is neoeasary to keep
the forces of evil from engulfing our
modern civilization.''

Assembly Delegates
1      Mew  Brunswick  Representatives  Claim
Moral Sabotage by Conference Factions;
Hint Destructive Rather Than
Constructive Influences at Work
By L. SAWDON of the 'Argosy'
SACKVILI-E, N.B., Jan. 15.—Supporting charges by their
dean, the delegates of Mount Allison Students' Union to the annual conference of the Canadian Students.' Assembly condemned
the organization.. They advised the withdrawal of their union
from the C.S.A. on the grounds that feelings expressed at the conference were both anti-British and anti-war.
DEAN KRUG OBJECTS
Dean C. A. Krug of Mount Allison University, also vigorously condemned the C.S.A. on the same
grounds tn a letter published In Saturday's edition of the Argosy, the
student publication of the university.
Dean Krug's letter waa published by
way of explanation of his reasons
for withdrawing from the C.S.A.
oonferenoo.
The following aro aome of tho
hlgh-llghte from the report of tho
Mount Allison delegates.
"From the flrst it was apparent
that a body of studente was in con-
trol whose purpoee was to swing the
disousslons away from the legitimate
problems of the Canadian Unlveralty
atudenta to a dlsousslon of Canada's
war effort and Canada's link with
the empire."
PATRIOTISM SCORNED
"The point to be made here is that
any consideration of what aid might
be given to Canada's war polloy and
her ties with the empire wae given
no support. On the contrary any
patriotic protest of loyalty was met
with laughter, scorn, or the silenoe
accorded by adults to childish prattle."
"The conference was deAnltely
anti-British, anti-war and anti-all
those principles which form our ties
with the British Empire."
"First things should oome first.
Your delegates hold with the firm
conviction that any discussion of
Canada's war polloy should have
been constructive—to help and not
to hinder.
Furthermore, a national unity
based on the repudiation of the British tradition whioh Is the guarantee
of civil liberties to the French and
English alike, muat inevitably bring
thia oountry to okaos or communism.

Provocative Curves
Co-Education
Beneficial To
Campus  Swains
"It does a man good to look up
from an economics text and see that
curves other than those on g&aph*
really exist," claimed Bob Bonner of
the Parliamentary Forum as he defeated Miss Emily Fraser of the Women's Public Speaking Olub in a debate on oo-education held last Friday.
Speaking against the resolution,
"That co-eduoation should be abolished," Bonner mournfully declaimed
the monastic solitude which he felt
would result in a non-oo-educational
ayatem.
"University life," he observed, "must
contain all the elements whloh go to
make up our later environments.
Hence co-education is desirable and
neoeaaary."
He was upheld by Darrell Braidwood who, mourning the absenoe of
women in the library on Hi-Jinx
night, emphasized the need for and
the glory of the campus oo-ed.
PURSUIT OF HIGHER THINGS
How oan women pursue higher education with the men continually pursuing them? asked Emily Fraser as
she advocated the abolition of coeducation. She was supported by a
battel y of campus co-eds including
Elspeth Munro who grimly observed
that co-eduoation meant distraction
for women and destruction for men.
C.S.A. Delegates
Squabble Over
Conscription
Students Differ
Regarding- Charges
of Moral Coercion
In direct contrast to N.F.C.U.
S. conference in Montreal which
pledged student support to the
Canadian government during the
present period of national emergency, the C.S.A. conference,
held a scant 30 ' miles away,
brought forward strong recommendations urging the government to
dlspsnse with sending any large expeditionary foroe overeeas,
CONSCRIPTION SQUABBLE
Led on by a strong Frenoh Canadian socialist faction, tho oonferenoo
claimed that any aotlve participation
of this nature by Canada would result In the disruption of Canadian
national unity.
The recommendation drew bitter
denunciation from the Maritime delegates who solidly backed the government, stating that the Conferenoe
was ln the control of a small but
powerful minority.
UJB.C. OPINIONS
As news of the Marltlmes' stand
swept across Canada, prominent
U.B.O. students voiced their opinions
on the subjeot;
Their views are personal and oan
not be oonsidsred as reflecting the
opinions of Students' Counoil or of
the Alma Mater Sooiety.
Shellah Hutchinson (local C.S-A. president), branded the statement of
Dean C. A. Krug of Mount Allison
University, whioh stated In part that
the feelings expressed at the oonferenoo were anti-British and anti-war,
as being untrue.

Oot 'Urn Totem
Sales Deadline
Extended To
Saturday Noon
The Totem sales campaign,
which was to have ended this
Wednesday, will be continued
until noon next Saturday, January 20.
This extension of time waa made
necessary by the last-minute decision
of the sororities to place their pictures in the annual. They will now
have three extra days In which to
sell Totem orders and thus defray the
expense of Totem spaoe.
It was also thought that the spring
rushing has taken away from interest
in Totem sales. As rushing is over
Wednesday, pledges will now have
time to think about buying—or selling—additional copies of the year
book.
Students are warned, however, that
there will be no further extension of
the sales deadline.
If you haven't yet ordered your 1940
Totem, do so immediately. No orders
will be taken after noon on Saturday. Two

DEAN KRUG WRITES
Dean Krug, In his letter to the
"Argosy" stated that he visited several of the commissions and states:
"I waa amaaed to discover that
the main assumption on the part of
the apeakera I heard waa that the
Britiah connection and the Britiah
tradition tn Canada waa a thoroughly bad one! that the preaent war, In
whloh we are engaged, waa one of
Imperial aggraaalon on the part of
Oreat Britain, and no vital Canadian Intereat was at stake In the
struggle."
LUNATIC FRINGE
Later Dean Krug declared! "I waa,
therefore, forced to the conclusion
that the organised group who are
running the conference, represented
merely the lunatic fringe of student
opinion whoso determination, conscious or unconscious, was to use the
good intentions of the reat ot ua for
the purpose ot anti-war, antl-Britlsh
and moral sabotage."
Dean Krug feeling that he oould
not allow his name to be associated
with such a gathering, withdrew
from the conferenoe, he went on to
explain In hla letter.
Edgar T. Tweed!., prealdent of the
Studenta' Union, announoed yeeter-
day that he was calling a meeting of
the Union in the bear future in order
that the etudente will be given a

Ruth Wllaon (delegate to the oonferenoo), told the press that It was her
belief that many C.8.A. delegatee
were swayed by the powerful minority whloh pushed the resolution
through.
"I spoks to several of the prairie
boys after the oonferenoo," ahe told
the Ubyaaey," the "general opinion
waa that more waa thought than

the oourage to voloe their views before the committee. However, privately they felt that the deoislon
was not a representative One."
Bob Bonner (vloe-preeldent of tho

one.
"I think  it hard to   reconcile   the
spirit of the resolution with the purpose of winning the war" he said.
Russell Palmer and Art Rae, prominent     Mamooks,      were      definitely
against the resolution.
Russ   Palmer   (prominent    Mamook

"There are a number of pacifists in

After the war—what? Thus
hendliups the posters advertising
the McOoun Cup debate which
will be held in the Hotel Georgia
this Friday evening. Eminent
politicians, statesmen, diplomats
and the like have at various tlmea
attempted to define and to oreate a
world in whioh man will live beside
man in peaoe, tolerance, and understanding.
So far they have failed in their
Utopian taak.
Now it la the atudenta' turn.
Sixteen McGoun Oup debatera, representing the four Western Oanadlan
universities, have been (ever slnoe
lust December) unravelling European
politics in an attempt to find out
whether a United States of Europe
would be conducive to world peace.
Students ln the past have been
noted for their somewhat brilliant
ideas, some of which have been prominent not only by their novelty but
also by their practicability. It ia too
much to hope that a panacea for the
world's ailments will be hidden in the
words of wisdom that will pour from
the mouths of these sixteen debaters
on Friday night.
But, one  can  never tell.
Regardless of what the debaters
might say their ideaa will be provocative for aa far as the world ia concerned the question is will peaoe
come to Europe before Europe comes
to pieces?
Such an analytical queation and
reaolution aa the one before the debaters — "Resolved that . a United
States of Europe at the conclusion of
the present war would be moat conducive to European peace," demands
keen and analytical minds.
This year the University la fortunate in having four men possessed
with keenness, calmness, and eloquence three of any debater, requisites.
These four men are Don MoGill
and Darrell Braldwood who are travelling to Saskatoon tonight to debate
a University of Saskatchewan team,
and Bernard Reed and Alfred Carlsen
who meet a team from the University
of Manitoba at the Hotel Georgia on
Friday night.
All those students who remember
the Political Discussions Club of last
year will remember the vivid and
somewhat brilliant bursts of eloquence
of Don McGiil then Premier of the
Conservative Party. They will also
recall the floods of oratory of Bernard
Reed then Premier of the Liberal
Party, official opposition before the
Progiesslves under Paul Volpe oame
to life.
And they will also recall the outstanding calmness of Darrell Braldwood then Speaker of the P.D.C. and
now suave L.SE. prexy who In his
spare time debated with MoGill In
the Vanoouver Debating League.
Only those students of three years
ago will remember Alfred Carlsen,
then a member of the McGoun Oup
team which travelled to Saskatchewan. Those who knew him then and
those who know him now will not
dispute the fact that he ls both keen
and analytical.
With such a Big Four U.B.C. stands
more than an average chance of regaining the McGoun Cup captured
by the University ot Saskatchewan
last year.

The dilettanti (Kftf Society to
you)   are  living   up  to   expectn-
The opening of the Broek
Memorial Building is to be an
epochal event, in many ways.
But chief aspect of its import-
mice, perhaps, is the fact that a
student's union building alwaya marks
the biggest difference between the
high sohool and the oollege or university.
Therefore, and I may be atioklng
my neck out with thla one, I claim
that the University is now about to
hold Its high aehool graduation exercises. The building will atand as a
mark of achievement for future
hordes of knowledge-thirsty adolescents; but it alao marks the growing
up of an Idea—and the "arrival" of
a real institution.
The very fact that students will
have to walk two or three blooke In
winter rain to complain to Oounoil,
to have executive meetinga, or to vlalt
the Lost and Found, will mean a
broadening of the gap between students and the governing body. Student offices will become more impersonal and formal; student executives
will have less Intimate contact with
the people they govern. The whole
thing makes for a more grown-up
university atmosphere.
And the strict discipline with wh'"h
Union Building rules are to be enforced by the Discipline Committee
may spread to other parta of the
campua. When students are foroed to
act like ladiea and gentlemen in one
campua building, the ohanoes are that
their activity in other rooma and corridors will take on a similar tone.

This morning I overheard a
prominent baskctballer make the
following remark: "If a person's college memories are going
lo be worthless when he's fifty
years of age, he should not buy

On behalf of the Totem staff, I
would like to thank Mr. Straight for
that bit of wisdom. For there's no

from what I've seen, the annual will
do a very good Job.
The extension ot time in whloh to

neoeaaary through the sororities' deolaion to take a page in the book.

The captain of a ship onoe wrote
ln his log. "Mate was drunk today."
When the mate became normal, he
waa terribly ohagrined and angry; he
pleaded with the captain to strike out
the reoord; he declared that he had
never been drunk before, that he
would never drink again.
But the captain aaid, "In thia log

The next week the mate kept the
log.
In it he wrote: "The captain WAS

University Ethnological Museum
•    •• ••• •••
Suggests tke Romantic Savagery of South Sea Islanders
Hidden away In an obaeure oorner
of the Unlveralty Library'a main
floor ia a little room. Upon the door
a modest typewritten eard proclaims
that within one oan view Mr. Frank
Burnett's oolleotlon of Ethnological
specimens presented to the university in 1887.
EXPLORER '
The late Mr. Frank Burnett, who
presented the oolleotlon to the museum, was an ethologist—a student
of the different human raoea. He waa
more than that.   He waa an explorer.
He waan't one of thoae fellows
who gain their adventure by sitting
calmly in an easy chair reading "The
Rover Boya In Borneo." No, Frank
Burnett had to be in the thiok of it
all the time. He spent a great part
of his life touring the islands of the
Paolflo gathering relics of primitive
raoes.
It wasn't an easy Job, either. The
natives oould get quite ugly when
the adventurer would attempt to
snatch an Idol from under their
noses. But that didn't stop Frank
Burnstt. Spears and throwing olubs
would whlas by his head. Arrows
would stasis through his hat. Axes
would hurtle past his brow. Frank
Burnett would merely plok them up
and add them to his ever growing
oolleotlon.
It is 8,000 miles around the equator from the Marquises Islands to
New Guinea. The Inteprid scientist covered every Inoh of- It In his
searoh for native rellos. The Solomon Islands, FIJI, Polynesia, Papua,
Borneo, Malaya, Tonga, Samoa, and
New Zealand are all repressnted In
the oolleotlon whloh lies in its entirety behind the door in that ob-
soure   oorner  of the  U.B.O.  library.
It is a oolleotlon well worth viewing.
HEAD-HUNTERS
Take, for example, the sinister
looking skull that forms the nuoleus
of the Borneo and Malaya oolleotlon.
It was obtained on a head hunting
raid. Apparently the Dojaks were
obsessed .with a desire to have 30 or
80 human heads hanging over their
Areplaoes. They eolleoted heads like
we collect matoh box tops. If the
obseesion became dormant, the eard
on the exhibit telle ua, you oould always depend on the women to reawaken It.
Aa ono wanders from exhibit to
exhibit tt becomes quite clear that
the natives' main pastime waa that
of cutting up other natives. For ln
every glass case there Is an Imposing array of spears, clubs, axee,
and other equally effective weapons. In the Tonga and Samoa oolleotlon there la a "peace axe." If
the other fellow wouldn't make
peaoe, you merely hit hint with thla
axe and everything was fine.
When they weren't fighting the
natives did quite a bit of danolng.
This got them In the mood for more
fighting. To danoe effectively, It
was considered good etiquette to
wear a ferocious looking danolng
mask, several of whloh oan bo viewed In the oolleotlon. The uglier the
mask waa, ths bstter the daaoe. Mr.
Burnett also piokad up a few of the
native drums to the rythms of whloh
ths savages Jitterbugged.
DEVILMAN
Then there were the devils. There
were devils everywhere. No matter
what you did, a devil would be
watohlng you. There was absolutely
no privacy. The amaaing Mr. Burnet suooeeded in swiping one of
these devils together with the house
in whloh he lived. It oan be seen in
all Its blaokness, In the Fijian oolleotlon.
Down in the Paolflo, the girls were
Just as careful about their hair as
Betty Co-ed is. In almost every oolleotlon there Is a group of women's
combs. Some are very like our modern combs, others are fan shaped affairs.
And talking of native girls, one
muat not. overlook the photographs
that Mr. Burnett waa farslghted
enough to take. There Is one of a
Tahitlan girl that would appeal to
Soienoemen. She Is rather scantily
dressed, and, aa ahe looks over her
shoulder, she rolls her eyes In that
"oome hither" manner that has been
the downfall of so many men. It Is
a tribute to Mr. Burnett's sterling
character  that he did  not sucoumb.
There is also a genuine grass skirt
In the collection. How Mr. Burnett
managed to secure a grass skirt ls a
question which will probably forever remain a mystery. Suffice it to
say that the grass skirt Is there, Just
like the hula dancers use In the movies.
The collection is an enormous one,.
Only a few of the ourios whloh go to
make It up have been highlighted
here. There are baskets from Borneo, straw bats from Malaya, hard
bamboo pillows from FIJI, stone axe
heads from Papua, feather fans from
the Amaaon, coral "money," food
bowls from Tonga . . . eaoh relic tells
a story, and eaoh story Is more fascinating than the previous one. The
south seas, with all their savage romance have been crammed Into that
little room ln the Library for the
benefit of U.B.C. students. It should
not be missed.
William Webb, a butoher of West
Worthing, Canada, put up this notloe in the window: "Thla business
has been compelled to cloae becauae
of bad debts. A list of the namea and
the amounts owing will shortly be
shown."
Money rolled In. The shop reopened. Business ls flourishing.

With ths League In Its final stages,
Varsity's Senior basketball quintette
will be going all out to oatoh a berth
In the playoffs, and will get a ohanoe
to do so whsn they tangle with Angelus Hotel at the Campus Gym,
Wedneaday night.
The Hotelmen are four pointa
ahead of the Thunderbirda who are
languishing In fourth plaoe, and will
be a tough hurdle for the Collegians.
Chief eauss for worry In the Thun-

on their schedule.
TOUGH COMPETITION
The basketmen will be faolng the
tougheet teama In the loop In their

appreciable majority of them to atay
In the running.
After Wedneaday nlght'a game
with Angelus, the 'Birds will run
right up against Maple Leafs, Inter-
City ohamplone, who have yet to
drop a league enoounter.
The Leafs, comprised mainly of
ex-Varsity stars are the olass ot
tho league, bat are riding high for
a fall. And observers are picking
the Varsity Ave to oet them on
tholr ears.
If the hoopsters play like they did
against Tookes they probably will.
In that game, the 'Birds played their
'nghtenlst' ball' of the season, although the style and polish wae still
laoking.
There are two insults whloh no
human will endure: the assertion
that he hasn't a sense of humor, and
the doubly Impertinent assertion that

TWO SMILING HOOPSTERS
Pictured above ln humorous vein are two of Varaity'a better known
baaketball star.. On the left Is amiable PAT FLYNN, in his second year, who
holds down the oentre spot, and works the bucket. On the right Is GEORGE
"JOE" PRINGLE, renowned guard, who la playing hla fifth year for the
Unlveralty. Pringle played on the Dominion Championship squad, and combines with Flynn on sone defense to make a formldlble, and airtight back Une.
THAT'S RIGHT —
YOU'RE WRONG
For quite some time now the Sports Staff has watched with
trepidation the performance of our Senior English Rugby team In
the Inter-CHy League, and In Its MoKeohnle Cup games-
Many are the questions evolving around the playing of tke
team, Its ooaohlng, and the attitude of tbe players and potential
players on the Campua to Unlveralty teams.
For example t
1.    Why does Coaeh Carey not play tbe same team twice, Instead
ot constantly shifting players from the Varsity and Ubeecee
teams, or at least leave thoso chosen to play In tbe same position for at leaet two successive games?
8.    Why ia tbe Ubeecee team, placed on equal footing with tbe
aenior team and playing In tbe aame league, without adequate
ooaohlng, when It la evident from their performances tbat
tbey haven't even grasped some of the fundamentals of tbe
game?
8.    Why waste Williams? Why must potential players be cajoled
and  wheedled  Into playing  for  University  teams,  and  their
sympathies weaned away from downtown teams?
4.    Why are the Varsity players always left gasping at the end of
the game, thus debunking the tradition of super-conditioning
for University teams?
8.    Why are several players consistently used on the senior team
In  the  faoe  of  poor  performances,  while  others,  potentially
their betters, languish In obscurity, unknown and unrecognised
by the powers?
No team can hope to win games unless the element ot cohesion is present, an element that ia necessarily laoking when the
fifteen men are constantly being changed, shifted into different
positions. When a man Is played In the three line, then dropped
for one game, and put back In the line-up for the following week,
then It Is time to question the ability of the team's ooaohlng staff.
When, too, there Is sufficient Interest on the part of sudenta
to warrant the entry of two teams In the Miller Cup League both
those teams should be given adequate ooaohlng. As it Is now, the
U.B.C. team gets Uttle or no attention, while the Frosh, eager to
learn, get absolutely no attention, and are turned loose like sheep
onoe a week to gambol and romp In complete bewilderment.
The University haa built up a great reputation In rugger circles,
and the fame ot Varsity teams has spread aa far south ae the
University of California, who are coming to Vanoouver In the
Eaater hoUdays to play against a Varsity team. Let us hope that
the team selected to play against them are sufficiently weU acquainted with eaeh other to show some combination and team play.

ROWING CLUB
The faat growing Rowing Olub has
been rounding into condition and is
just about ready for intercollegiate
competition. As a matter of fact
Hugh Littleton la quite optimistic
about this year's edition of scullers
arid announces that a tentative date
for a meet with Corvallis has been
set for February 17.
Two orews are expected to make
the  Oregon  trip,  one  squad  being
heavyweights, the others competing
In the lightweight class.
An important meeting and workout
will be held at the boathouse on Saturday,  and  as  crews will  be  chosen
next week, attendance is imperative.
Biggest handicap of the olub ao far
seems to be the scarcity of coxes, so
light men  (physically)  are requested
to turn out.
APPLIED  PSYCHOLOGY
At the great Japanese port of
Kobe the police recently arrested
butchers who were selling the flesh
of stolen dogs for ten sen (about
three cents) a pound. One of them
confessed that he had killed the
three beautiful sheep-dogs belonging
to the police commissariat. When
the police flared up he tried to flatter them with: "The meat 'was excellent; I 'was complimented about
it."—Candlde, Paris.
Victoria Retains
McKechnie Cup
With 11-6 Win
Last Half Flurry
Sinks Thunderbirds
Victoria's Crimson Tide chalked
up their third MoKeohnle Oup viotory of the ourrent season and oln-
ohed the trophy Into the bargain
last Saturday when they defeated
Varsity 11-8. Although the Campusmen were leading 8-8 at the end of
the flrst half, the Islandmen turned
on the heat In the ssoond frame to
olnch the win.
Victoria was the flrst to snter the
soorlng strip when Bray scooped up
a Varsity fumble on the Ave yard
line and ran It over for three pointa.
Grogan failed to oonvert for the extra counters.
The Thunderbirds replied almost
Immediately however with Andy
Johnston converting a tough penalty
klok from about thirty yards out.
JOHNSTON  STABS
Quiokly following up this marker,
Johnston was given another opportunity and made a beautiful conversion of another free klok from
a very bad angle. This lad Johnston,
Inold.ntally, played a whale of a
game at Inside three, performing before a crowd of t^om. town spectators.
About bait way through tbe seoond frame, tho Crimson Tide
blocked a Varsity klok and carried
tbe leather over for thetr seoond
major soore but onoe again Grogan faUed to oonvert, whloh left
the aoore at S all. *
In the oloslng mlnutea of the tilt
Viotorla oame through with a magnificent three-quarter run whieh culminated in a try between the poets.
Orogan oinehed the game by eon-
verting the kick to make it 11-8 for
the Islandmen.
UBEECEES LOSE
In the Ubeeoee-Ex-Britannla contest, a sorappy but undermanned
Varsity team was defeated 8-8 by
the Ex-High lad*. Ex-Britannia registered the flrst soore early tn the
Initial frame when Norm Kennedy
ran one over after a .mart three-
quarter run.
Jaok Roes kept the CoUeglana
In the flght however, when he oonvertod a stiff penalty klok to mako
the soore 8 aU. Jaok Wattera settled the game In the second halt
with a brilliant solo run of oloso
to fifty yarda, whioh, although unconverted, waa enough to give the
Ex-Britannlana the margin of viotory.
In oonneotion with the latter tilt,
It appears that some of the lads
didn't know that the contest was
definitely soheduled, beoause only
eleven men turned out for the performance. Basil Robinson played for
the students in his flrst game of the
season despite the faot that he had
originally planned to play graes
hookey.

KIOH FINANCE
For two succeaslve years,' now, the
Senior "A" Basketballers have made
fools of themselves, while the Harlem
Globetrotters, masters of hoopla wizardry, ran circles around them, and
generally made them the butt of innocent gaga.
For this, the members ot the team
have received nothing more than the
Jeera of the crowd. Laat year the net
receipts, after expenses had been paid,
was 838. Instead of crediting the basketball team with thla money, Studenta' Oounoil merely entered lt ln
their booka, without ahowing that It
came aa proceed* from the game.
Thia year, after giving the Globetrotters their guaranteed 880, and
paying the referee, the hoopsters had
838 left ln the kitty. This year, too,
they haa been promised that, unlike
the year before, the money would be
credited to the baaketball account,
and ahown on their books as an aaaet.
It was only on theae conditions that
Van Vllet revoked his decision not to
play the Harlem team.
Unfortunately  the  hoopsters  are
out   of   luok,   plus   the   thirty-flve
bucks  as  welt,  beoause  they   were
assessed  exactly  thirty-flve dollars
for rental of the gym! And this, we
learn, without even the consent of
Counoil, who should at least delegate  the  whys  and  wherefores  of
money raised by student initiative.
Thus   the   nine   hundred   students
who witnessed the Harlem game have
seen their last, of that kind, on the
Campus for quite aome time,  unless
better and more equitable oo-operatlon can be affected between the basketmen and the A.M.S. Office.
LATE NEWS
We learn, further, however, that
the intentions of the A.M.S. Offloe
are not to be questioned, but rather
that they are working aooording to
a Student Council ruling which states
that no club may reoolve, directly,
monies raised by that club unless
okayed by a Special Minute.
Thus it seems that the enraged
oagemen will get additional basketball strip, although ln a rather indirect way. If they don't, however,
they have a very good case, and
should push it to the limits.
Very ugly or very beautiful coeds
should be flattered on tholr understanding; mediocre ones on their
beauty.
Possibility that the loe Hookey
squad may see eome long-awaited
action loomed today when manager
Bill H.nselm of the Chevron aquad
•xpreaaed hla wlllingn.aa to allow
the Thunderbird puokohasers to replace his team In the Sunday Night
League.
POPULAR SPORT
Sunday Night hookey has made a
great hit with the fans this year
and better than three thousand fans
cheer on the players in the weekly
triple headers. The league Is composed of six teams, with White Pine
the preaent loop-leaders.
Several Varaity players are now
playing with teama, both In tho
Senior Inter-City and the Sunday
Night leagues.
With those puok-ohasers already
ln good shape, combined with several
from last year's aquad and other
hopefuls, Varsity would probably
put out a sextette that would be the
olass of the league, despite the late
start.
With a few of these gamee under
their belts, the Blue and Oold would
be well prepared to play feature
challenge games with suoh 'big time'
teama as the Air Foroe and Irvine's
Forum Fugitives.
POWERFUL SQUAD
An idea of the powerful squad
Varsity would have is evident when
we consider last year's almost intact lineup with a definite bolstering
of newcomers.
The rear guard would approaoh
Invincibility with Ed "Shutout" Benson in goal, and defenoemen Jim
Harmer, Angy Provensao, Don
Prlckett, Jaok Moxon, and Jaok
Stevenson.
There ls also an abundance of
players "up front" such as Oill, Ted
Stevenson, Howat, Frith, Ussher,
Ouiguet, Kapak and several prospects who may oatoh a playing berth.
