D.B.C. Debaters To Meet
English. Team Friday
DEBATE FRIDAY AT HOTEL VANCOUVER
ROBERTSON CRICHTON OF OXFORD, AND LESLIE JACKSON OF
CAMBRIDGE, TO MEET CONWAY AND SUMNER
"Will John Sumner and Jack Conway successfully uphold
the affirmative of the resolution: 'That Pacifism is a Spiritually
and Economically impossible creed' when they meet Robertson
Crichton and Leslie Jackson in the imperial debate this Friday
evening at the Hotel Vancouver?" is what the students are
asking this week.
Sumner ln Winnipeg Debate
John Sumner, a senior in Chemical
Engineering, has been an outstanding
member of the Parliamentary Forum
since its inception. Last year, as well
as debating against the Law Students
Society here, he represented his Alma
Mater in Winnipeg against the University of Manitoba. Sumner is well
known in political circles as an excellent C.C.F. speaker. This year, he
is President of the L.S.E. and hence
a member of Students' Council.
Conway Starred In Palo Alto
Jack Conway, senior, made a very
credible showing in his first year of
formal debating, according to Frank
Millar, president of the parliamentary
forum. He is experienced in international debating. He has debated
once against Bates College and twice
against Stanford. As a member of
the team which defeated Stanford in
Palo Alto last yesir, he received considerable praise. He is a member of
the forum executive and prominent
in the Players' Club, having had parts
in the Christmas Plays and Caesar
and Cleopatra.
Oxford Man Also Editor
Robertson Crichton was educated at
Seaberger School in Yorkshire where
he showed himself to be extremely
interested in Debating and in the
Drama. He produced six plays there
and later at Oxford played "Quince"
in the Reinharclt production of "A
Midsummer Night's Dream" for the
O.U.D.S. At Oxford too, he held executive positions both on the debating union and the Conservative Association. In his undergraduate clays
he was also Editor of the "Isis," the
Oxford Journal; and president of the
law society,
Though politically a Tory Mr.
Crichton is very definitely "left
wing"; so much so in fact that he
assisted in bringing forward an anti-
militarist resolution at the party conference in 1933. Mr. Crighton is a
Scotsman and never allows himself
to forget it though he is destined for
the English bar.
Jackson Interested In Drama
Leslie Tumour Jackson was born
in Cape Town in 1912. He was educated in Nottingham High School,
whore he was n Scholar and Captain
of the School, and at Trinity Hall,
Cambridge, where he was an Open
Exhibitioner in Classics. His early
interests lay rather in the direction
of the stage than the debating platform. At an early age he obtained
parts in his school productions, fin-

Shakespearian Plays
Discussed By English
Professor In Interview
"Julius Caesar was very pleasantly
staged and acted; a revelation of
what can be done with Shakespeare
by average actors," declared Dr.
Sedgewick, in an interview granted
to tho Ubyssey.
He did not think that it would be
practicable to present a Shakespeare
play th;s spring. "The difficulties of
presenting such a play increase in
geometric progression as the size of
tho play and the number of actors."
The chief difficulty lies in training
a large number of students to speak
blank verse; the presentation of a
play, as outlined, would demand a
whole term's work. "However," said
the genial doctor, "I would like to
see a play attempted, if the proper
preparation was put on it."
"I hope the Players' Club will be
able to find something better than a
Noel Coward pla\. A University performance should have genuine artistic and intellectual content."
Dr. Sedgewick thought that if short
scenes were to be given, serious scenes
would be more suitable than comedies or farces. "I suggest particularly
the Council scene from the first act
of  Othello"—A.  B,
JOHN SUMNER
Shakespearian Actor
To Give Performances
FRITZ LEIBER
Fritz Leiber, famous contemporary
Shakespearian actor, supported by
one of the finest playing companies
ever brought to Vancouver, will give
performances at the Vancouver Theatre beginning on Dec, 3,
This season, Mr Leiber is confining
his repertoire to five of the great
English playwright's productions:
Hamlet, to be given on Dec. 6, 8; Julius Caesar, on Dec. 5, 8; The Merchant
of Venice, on Dec. 4; King Leor,
on Dec. 3, 7, and Macbeth, onl Dec. 5.
The actor and his company are presented by Elbert A. Wickes—who also
has the Abbey Theatre Players, of
Dublin, on tour. In Mr. Leiber's
company are noted the following outstanding names: Virginia Bronson,
Agnes Elliott Scott, Mary Emerson,
Vera Loday, Gordon Burby, Eiic Kal-
khurst, France Bendtsen and John
Burke.
Varsity Y.M.CA. Hears
Dr. Topping on League
Dr. Topping, president of the Vancouver branch of the League of Nations Society, was guest speaker at
a supper meeting of the Varsity Y
on Monday,  Nov. 19,  in the Caf.
Dr. Topping outlined tho objectives
and functions of the League in world
politics and their present applications.
Tiie League should be an international form of government to restrict
the freedom of the national state in
order to safeguard the freedom of
all. Geneva stands for a world community among a world of anarchy.

The combined roars of the Arts-
men, Sciencemen and Aggies fought
for precedence with the melodious
strains of Cam Smith's Embassy Orchestra. A shower of lunch papers
perpetually fell on the stage. In
short, there was a pep meeting Friday.
As usual, long before the meeting,
was officially open, the three faculties' cheering sections engaged in a
prolonged vocal contest. This was
cut short when Stu Keate appeared
before the curtain as master of ceremonies. He t'shcred In the meet to
the tune of a heretofore unheard of
composition, which was very well received.
Buddy Smith regaled the audience
with a song. This was followed by
a short talk by Coach Ivor Moe, who,
with a little questioning by the master of ceremonies, conceded the team
a good chance on Saturday. Fred
Belton, who played his last game
Saturday, spoke briefly.
The cries of the cheerers next
brought out Dodie Brown, who gave
an interpretation of "Savage Serenade."
A distinctly immoral note was lent
to the program by Messrs. Whimster,
Charlton and Sargent, with their fan
dance. It had been announced that
that "The fans were quicker than the
eye," but, while the boys did vheir
best,  a few mixups occurred.
The new senior cheer leader, Max
Legg, then led each faculty in a yell,
which was followed by a university
"Kitsilano." Bi'l Tremaine officially
handed over the megaphone.

ALAN BAKER
Alan Baker, editor of the 1935 Totem, is a graduate of Victoria College",
where he was president of the Alma

"Whoever controls the basic chemical industry of u nation controls that
nation, and no nation can ignore research and live," declared Dr. J. Allen Harris at the Vancouver Insitute
lecture Saturday night in Arts 100.
Dr. Harris opened his talk on "Reality in the Chemical Age," with a
brief outline of what Chemistry is,
"Most people," he said, "associate
chemistry with thc corner drugstore
Thc movies havo given another erroneous conception of the chemist.
Many pvople look on the chemist as
a magician."
Research vs. Tariffs
"What manufacturers understand,
they use. The attitude towards chemistry is one of militant scepticism.
And, though they have refused research to improve their products, they
demand higher tariffs when the
chemically developed products of
Europe outsell tneirs. Research to
improve products would be better
than any tariff. The modern handwriting on the wall I translate as:
"The price of progress is research.'
As an example of the use of chemistry, I will take the cotton growers.
By discovering that edible fats can
be made from cotton seed oil, the
chemist has added $150,000,000 annually to the value of the cotton crop."
"Unless our governments realize
that this is a chemical age, we are
certainly headed for that chaos which
so many people are prophesying for
us."
Dr. Harris then gave a brief survey of the Aluminum industry, the
artificial silk industry, and the calcium carbide industry. He showed
that these industries had grown tremendously since the processes were
discovered.
Unnatural Resources
"We are now getting to a point
where modern science will tend to
prevent war. There is no longer
much need to acquire colonies to
provide raw materials. And in B.C.,
we will find that our natural resources are no longer natural resources,  because nobody wants  them."
"I believe that a Department of
Science should be added to our cabinet, to scientifically co-ordinate our
industries. And I believe that aluminum offers a new industry for
B.C. Here I have a can of sardines
from Norway, But it is not packed
in tin plate. It is packed in alumi-
i num. Tills has many advantages.
First, it would offer a good new industry for B.C. Second, no label is
needed, as printed matter can be
stamped on the metal. Third, no lacquer is needed, because aluminum
forms its own protective coat of oxide. Fourth, when used, it can be
remelted  and  made  into another.
"It has been said that most ideas
come from England and France, are
developed in Germany, and the patents are bought in America. I think
that in Canada we buy the finished
product. And imless we wake up
and realize that this is i chemical
age, we will go on doing so."
Copies Of Questionnaire On War
Being Distributed To Students
j For the convenience of students, copies of the question-
1 naire which appeared in last Friday's Ubyssey on "What Do
You Think About War?" are being distributed in the Cafeteria.
As this is a question which concerns no one so vitally
as young people of university age, it is hoped that the students
will give their wholehearted support in giving their honest opinion on the subject of war. It is only by so doing that we, the
persons directly concerned, can give expression to our feelings
on the subject. The attitude of university students throughout
Canada and the rest of the world can work as a very powerful influence in determining the attitude of the public in general, and hence in helping to decide whether or not civilization
is to go through another wholesale slaughter inconceivably
more terrible than that which occured from 1914 to 1918.
It appears to be the opinion of some people that the students of this university are dead, and without any interest in
national or international affairs. The response which this questionnaire brings forth will prove conclusively whether or not
this is so. All that yo$have to do is to put a check opposite the
opinions with which you agree and deposit the questionnaire in
one of the boxes provided at the entrance to the Caf and in the
corridor of the Arts Building. Blanks may be obtained at the
Pub Office.
The staff of the Ubyssey is doing its part by distributing
these ballots and is also prepared to take care of the collection
and tabulation of the results. Is it too much to ask the students
to do the rest?

BOWLERS
Those who watch the trend of the
markets have noticed a phenomenal
rise in the price of second hand bowlers. They take it as an indication
of improved business. But in reality,
the increased demand for used bowlers and the corresponding increased
sale of red paii t may be taken as an
indication that Science pep is floating on a full tide.
Those Aggiei who dared to lift a
red bowler and display it atop the
flag pole on the "Horse Building",
were dealt with ua gently as possible
in retrieving the emblem of superiority for Sci'ence. Aggie resistance was
at a particularly low ebb—owing to
the epidemic of "milkmaids' knee"
sweeping the Faculty and putting several 'culture men on the sick list.
Let's hang on to our red lids boys,
they are ours. Don't give them to
performers even though they are
belles, you may not get them back.
Red bowlers are a Science tradition.
The men of '3d and '33 had them (as

and   under   no   conditions   did   they
part with them willingly.

Canadian Stamps Are
Collected on Campus
Are you a philatelist? If so, you
will be interested in a collection of
the postage stamps of Canada and
the early British North American Colonies that was started by the University several years ago.
The work is carried on, under the
direction of the President, by a special committee appointed tor the purpose, and this Committee is commissioned not only to add, regularly, the
stamps that may from time to time
be issued in Canada, but also to endeavour to secure, through gifts or
otherwise, any stamps of Canada that
will add to the completeness of the
collection.
Contributions Wanted
All contributions of old Canadian
postage stamps are welcomed; and
those who hwe stamps that might
add to the completeness of the collection or who know the owners of
old stamps who might be pleased to
help the University in this endeavour
are urged to co-operate with the committee in making the collection, especially of eaily issues, as complete
as possible.
Postage stamp collectors, students
of Canadian History and others who
are interested may have access to the
collection through the Registrar.
Have you read The Colonial Postal Systems and Postage Stamps of
Vancouver Island and British Columbia by A. S. Deaville? It is in the
library.
Philosophy Club
Studys Schools
Of Thought
The last Philosophy Club meeting
was held on Tuesday at the home of
Dr. C. W. Topping. Papers on "Behaviorism" and "Functionalism" were
given by Miss Bella Newman and Mr.
Chris Loat respectively.
Behaviorism started in 1898 with
Edward Thorndyke and his book,
"Animal Intelligence." His work was
carried on by John B. Watson, under
whom it became a natural science.
The Behaviorists limit themselves to
things that can be observed. They
take the whole field of human adjustment and study responses, conditioned and unconditioned, and their
influence is on the modification of
behavior. Watson recognized three
kinds of emotional response, fear,
rage and love. "Behaviorism is the
last word of science about ourselves."
Functionalism is the most conservative of all tho schools of psychology
and is n logical outcome of the theories of James expressed in his "Principles of Psychology" in 1890. James
said that the final process is the association of things, not ideas. Functionalism, though closely connected
with biology, shows the difference in
the actions of body governed by mind
from pure body. It is "the study of
the response of a whole individual
rather than the investigation of thc
movements of any single part of the
individual." at

THE IMPERIAL DEBATE
The debate between the representatives of
this University and the team from Oxford and
Cambridge—to be held in the Hotel Vancouver on Friday next—will undoubtedly prove
to be one of the most outstanding events of
this term.
There are many features of this contest
that should arouse interest and enthusiasm
among students and the public, in general. In
the first place, it is important to realize that
U.B.C. will face men who are recognized veterans, trained in the finest of all oratorical
societies—the famous Oxford and Cambridge
debating Unions.
Both of these organizations have a tradition behind them that is almost beyond the
comprehension of students on this continent.
It is from these Old Country centres of academic interest that the Gladstones, the Salis-
burys, the Curzons, the Asquiths, and a long
line of other illustrious British political speakers and thinkers have drawn heavily in the
past, and, will doubtless continue to do so in
the future.
Again, we must realize that in our own
Parliamentary Forum we have a debating organization that—if somewhat lacking in the traditions of its British rivals—has, nevertheless,
established a high standard of its own in recent
years. And we may also count ourselves fortunate in securing men of such calibre as the
two chosen to represent this University in the
debate.
Above everything else, there is the subject of the contest—"Resolved that Pacifism
is a spiritually and economically Impossible
Creed"—which should provide both teams with
excellent weapons, in the shape of subtle arguments, for an epic oratorical battle. All that is
needed to complete the program—a good turnout—must be partially supplied, at least, by
students of U.B.C.
MANNERS IN THE STACKS
With Christmas exams looming in the near
future, the migration to the Library is already
well under way. Library hogs who establish
absentee ownership of seats have received their
share of condemnation, but there is another
type of more or less unconscious offender who
might benefit from a casual reminder that sociable conversation is not conducive to study.
The sociably inclined are objectionable enough
in the main section of the Library, but in the
stacks and reading-room, which have no soundproof equipment, they are particularly annoying. While small-talk is most enjoyable at
times and eavesdropping undoubtedly has its
points it is perhaps unfair to impose one's
conversational talents on the occupants of surrounding carrals, who, in the majority of cases,
would prefer to study. Posters in the caf which
read "Do Your Studying in the Library"
might well be lent to the Library for the
Christmas rush and painted on the other side
with "Do Your Talking in the Caf."
SOBS DEPT.
You've heard tell, no doubt, that capitalists have no heart, that in them the milk of
human kindness is frozen, and this is placed
here to disprove the theory. The capitalist,
represented by a very wealthy movie company
in Hollywood, we shall henceforth designate
as the X Brothers Company, Max and Jacob.
A few years ago Max and Jacob had an
idea for a movie about an apple vendor who
was allowed for one day to spend all the money she wanted any way she wanted, but after
that it was all over.
So they found an old lady who sold apples on the street. Her name was Helen McCarthy. They let her choose what she would
do on her big day. Sne chose to live in a big
hotel, eat grandiosely, wear gorgeous clothes,
and in general have a roaring good time.
So they set her up, and had a big story
about her in all the papers. Having attracted
public attention, they released a picture en
titled "Lady for 24 Hours," purported to be
about the publicized lady.
The picture had the audiences standing in
the aisles, Max and Jacob made a lot of money.
They pocketed it with smug grins of com
placence over how clever they were, and how
well they had advertised, and how cheaply
their publicity had been secured.
A fortnight ago an old lady and her hus
band were found dead in their small apart
ment, dead from gas poisoning. Investigation
showed that the victims, both over 70 were
Thomas and Helen McCarthy, who had been
living for the past fifteen months on $16.59
per month relief money.
A humanitarian reporter with a flair for
sobbing in print sent the story to the As
sociated Press, which, being susceptible to sobs
in features, spread it wide over the American
continent. There was no money for a funeral,
and potter's field was indicated.
But among the reading public of the sobbing reporter were Max and Jacob, whose
hearts were wrung at the terrible prospect of
their heroine going to a potter's field grave.
Besides, the sobbing reporter had practically
named them in his story.
So they made it up to her, yes, sir. They
gave her the swellest funeral which money
could buy.
USELESS INFORMATION
Did you see the Christmas Plays? Remember the first one, "They Refuse To Be Resurrected"? And do you remember where the
piquant Columbine stepped up behind the
struggling author to glance over his shoulder
at the book he was reading? And she said:
"Why, it's called 'How To Write Plays'."
Well, as a matter of fact, the book he was
reading at the time was called: "The Cradle
Song."
We defy you to find any use for that information.
MORE ABOUT THE QUESTIONNAIRE
What do you think about war, or do you?
The response to the questionnaire which appeared in Friday's Ubyssey should be a clear
indication of student alertness or apathy, as
thc case may be. Thc questions have been
carefully planned to include every general aspect of opinion, and as a test of decisiveness
provides a certain satisfaction to the individual. Once more the Ubyssey requests co-operation. If you have not yet filled out a blank you
will be interested to know that one minute is
ample time to express your opinions and deposit them in one of the conveniently placed
boxes.
ETIQUETTE DEPT.
A heinous social offense came to light a
few days ago in Mrs. Emily Post's invaluable
little daily screed which is syndicated to America's leading papers daily. It's bad form to
be buried in your dinner clothes—that is for a
gentleman.
One of Mrs. Post's correspondents wrote
her to this effect: "A friend of mine died very
suddenly and I was entrusted with the arrangements for the funeral. The undertaker said
he must be buried in dinner clothes, and although I questioned the taste of this, I allowed it to be done. Was it bad form?"
And Mrs. Post answered in effect: "Tsk,
Tsk!"
Mrs. Post's hints to the "don't know the
score-"ers are based on common kindness and
inconspicuousness, she says, and usually her
answers conform with this. And just where the
bad taste lies in being buried in a dinner suit
from this point of view is not apparent.
Maybe Mrs. Post is a lady of faith who is
imagining the gentleman's arrival (if any) in
heaven.
He arrives at the pearly gates, and draws
out his pass. He hands it to St. Peter. St.
Peter looks at him with horror. The gentleman looks past him into the confines of Hea-
en, as the look of horror passes onto his face,
he sees the rest of ihe party dressed in loose
white gowns with simple halos.
"My God," he says, "I didn't know it was
going to be informal."
DIRT
and
DIGS
From the Campus
Garbage Can
News on the campus reached such
a low ebb this week that I had to
make something happen. Did you
hear all about the mouse? People
ln the pub have a habit of opening
other peopled ink boxes and filling
their pens; so I took out the ink bottles and replaced it by a live mouse
from the abode of the haunting Freshette! You should've been in the pub.
when a Kappa innocently opened the
box to get some ink!! and nearly had
hysterics!
Then the, damo who corresponds
with H . . . R . . . took it down to
the caf to scon all the Phi Delts at
noon—last tune they all stood on their
table and screamed while a sorority
sister captured it—but she let it escape. And did Dixie run? Dixie by
the way is tho lady who serves Walter Kennedy at Council meetings with
an extra scoop of itv cream on his
pie!! It appears students have previously charged the caf with put-
ing "mouse gravy" in ths soup and
Dixie was afraid a riot might break
out if it happened again.
However,   the   mouse   was   saved
from the caf soup for that day since
a Junior in the A.D.'s took it over
and let it loose in the library.    For
further details see Mercer.

absence of "Coming Events" last
Tuesday. It was emitted by the way,
because the Muck page was more
important,

I wonder why Stuart De Vitt wrote

"Thou  who  this  night  my hostess

Than partys furnish on this night of

I wish to commend the work of
the Oxford Group on this campus:
Last year someone stole my French
Book, This Fa'l, instead of selling it,
they very kindly placed it in the Arts'

instance of "absolute honesty."
Further cvidencj of their presence
here is this: I lost a walret containing
a dollar bill and some minor valuables and soma student was honest
enough to bring it into the pub. for
me.

Oddities
At Plays
Whenever amateur actors produce
plays, there is bound to be a succession of interesting and amusing incidents. The Xmas Plays last week
were no exception to the general rule.
It all started when Lloyd Hobden
sprained his ankle on Friday evening.
He was playing tag with Alan Walsh,
the stage manager.
Friday's show continued to be unusual, the climax coming when Mr.
Bispham, in '"To-day of all Days,"
fell sound asleep in the middle of
the play. It was only a, burst of applause two mintues before his cue
that brought the "drunken sot" to
his senses.
Two of the leading actors got a
scare when thny saw a nice white
ticket on the windshield of their cars.
It was a present from Constable Orchard to remind them that they should
not park their cars in the quad.
The audience on Saturday night
probably wondered why the off-stage
music in "To-day of All Days," was
faded away with such good effect.
Tha genius responsible was Bill Sargent who picked up the music-box
and walked away with it when the
band was supposed to fade into the
distance.
Later in the same evening Bill
amused the crowd at the Black Cat
by playing baseball, on the "boards."
This entertainment went on till the
supply of nickels ran out.
Sam Roddan, the nervous Joe Kershaw, had tho pleasure of being
soaked with water every performance. The wetting was done by Connie Baird. Sam's tic had to be pressed
anew each nighf.
One of the amusing sights of the
evening was Professor Dilworth trying to tune the instrument used in
"Caesar."
This recitation of back-stage oddities could go on for ever, but it all
goes to show that, despite many difficulties and obstacles, the Players
Club always comes out on top.

orlties, Dr. Topping stated that he be-
lieves them to be inevitable.
"Is the League of Nations to be-
come a League of Europe?" This is
the fear of many. Russia, the United
States, and Brazil are out of the
League. Therefore it is of the utmost importance that Canada retain
her place in it. The speaker stressed
the importance of the Pact of Paris,
for since this pact war has become
illegal. Japan failed to declare war
in the Shanghai incident cf 1931 simply because sho was afraid of world
opinion.
There is no other organization that
could control the drug traffic, repatriation problems and international
labour problems as effectively as the
League.
In conclusion, Dr. Topping stated
that the future of the League is very
bright, for the cost is small and the
organization is in harmony with the
facts. We live in an international
world, and tho League is an international organization. "As I see the
future, we are heading more and
more toward a collective system. Disarmament is not a dream, all that is
necessary is the will to disarm.

Ice Hockey at-
U.B.C, which has been dormant for years, is
now coming back strong with the announcement that four games have definitely been
arranged between the Thunderbirds and the
Washington Huskies. These games will be
played next spring and practices will be
held during the hollidays. A meeting has
been called for Thursday in Arts 108.
Inter-Collegiate—
Sport will flourish during the hollidays
as lar as basketball is concerned. The Senior
A men will travel in Washington during
the Christmas vacation, and, according to
present plans, will play seven games during
that time. This includes a game against the
Washington Frosh, as a preliminary to the
Washington-Idaho conference game in Jan.
Lumbermen Splash
To 39-0 Win Over
Varsity Gridders
Wet Field Prevents Passing
By ALAN MORLEY
American football made its second appearance before
U.B.C. spectators on Saturday in a dull and dismal exhibition of
brute strength pitted against gallant ignorance.
The rain drizzled down on the Loggers and the Thunderbirds alike as the C.P.S. huskies wallowed steadily through the
soggy Varsity line in an unending procession of plodding power
plays to push across the line six times for a final score of 39-0.
Not  that  the  Thunderbirds  didn't   	
try.    They did their  best, but the<b*^^^^*IS1—i
more experienced Loggers just made
hash of them.   It was pitiful.
The sea of mud that formed the
surface of Athletic Park also made it
impossible to relieve the monotony
by any of the brilliant sallies with
which the Blue and Gold usually enliven contests, even though they may
be outclassed.
Six Touchdowns
The result wa3 that the best part of
the performance was the idiotic antics of a gang of unusualy irresponsible Frosh at half time. For the rest,
it was miserably cold in the stands,
and, as a well known female character once seems to have remarked,
"We were not amused."
Statistically considered, the game
consisted of two touchdowns by a
burly and efficient gentleman named
Piper in the first quarter, one by
Piper and one by Nace in the second,
and repeats of the performance by
Duncan and Brooks in the third.
On the other side of the scrimmage
line, the Thunderbirds demonstrated
that they are practically mdestruct-
able, that they are good sports on the
losing end, and that Varsity courage,
at least, has not deteriorta-ed.
In short they could take it—but
they didn't know what to do with it
when they got it.
C. P. S. Interference
Considerable amusement was caused
by the novel spectacle of full fledged
interference operating. The Paget
Sound lads demonstrated it efficiently,
and effectively. They certainly
blocked the Thunderbird c'efence men
and it was rather spectacular to observe three or four or five heroic
souls tear madly toward yellow shirt-i
ed opponents and prostrate themselves'
violently in the mud before them,
disappearing in self-raised fountains
of inky gumbo.

Off Soccermen
In olden times, it was a practice
for every man and every organization to look to onv) particular god for
special consideration. If there was
anything in it, Pep Clubbers should
from this tim3 henceforth pay their
humble respects to Jupiter Pluvius,
for was it not he who restored to
them their lo;it Senior Cheer leader?
The American football gamo Saturday at Athletic Park was one touchdown old, and still Max Legg was
absent. At last he arrived, and the
sad truth was told. He had gone to
play Soccer!
And that is where old Jupe came
in. He, no doubt anticipating the
Peppers' plight, performed so lustily
that all parties agreed to leave the
McBride morass in peace, Thus the
Varsity-Johnson Storage game was
postponed, and «Max was welcomed
back to the fold.
While this postponement was, m a
sense, fortunate for the Soccer Club,
who have two stars, Laurie Todd
and Kozoolin, injured, it cost Varsity
their position at the head of thc
league, as Liberals and Maccabees
stepped out of tho 4-way tie with the
idle Thunderbirds, and Columbia Hotel, leaving the Collegians tied for
third place with Columbia Hotel, and
loco, who moved up at the latter's
expense over the week-end.
Twiss were perhaps th-e most effective, though ah the boys sacrificed
themselves nobly in the cause.
They at least have one consolation
—their deficit has been reduced by
one point, bein,T the lowest score to
which they have yet held any opponent in the Yanlui; game. Next season they hope to cut it even further.

Varsity can once again go into a
tie for the league leadership if they
succeed in sending Bob Osborne's
V.A.C. boys down the lane tonight.
The game is scheduled for 9:00 at
the Varsity gymnasium and will be
preceeded by two preliminaries, the
first an Intermediate* "A" game, and
the second Senior "B", between Varsity and Spencers, originally scheduled for King Ed, gym.
Another "Crooshal" Game
Varsity and V.A.C. have been running neck and neck in the newly-
formed Inter-City Basket League, and
are now separated by only a half
game. They havu met twice so far,
V.A.C. taking thc first game, and
Varsity coming back to take the second. For these reasons the third encounter should be' a thriller. Since
Adanacs obliged Saturday by toppling Province from the league leadership the whole league has been
tightened nearly to a four way tie
and a brace cf wins now for any of
these four  would  send  them  ahead.
Willoughby To Play
Rugby now being finished until
next fall, Art Willoughby and "Henny" Henderson will be able to devote their athletic talents solely to
the hoop sport, and the team will be
at full strength, unless a bang received by Henderson during the Saturday football game, puts him out of
the game. Because of this fact, and
because Varsity Is playing on their
home floor, they should chalk up another victory tonight.
The main strengths of the V.A.C.
squad are in the husky persons of
Captain Osborne and Bus Haugh.
who were the main causes of a ten
point win over MacKenzie-Fraser last
Saturday, while "Bugs" Bardsley will
lead Varsity's hopes, who are Willoughby, Pringle, Wright, Mansfield,
Ross, Swan, Osborne and Henderson.
Track Squad
Plans Trip
To Victoria
BIG TEAM TO MAKE TRIP FRIDAY
Team Looks Strong
Percy Williams, new Varsity Track Coach, and Cecil
Wright, Senior Manager, emerged from a huddle yesterday and
announced the team that will travel to Victoria this Friday for
the Kiwanis Indoor Meet there.
Max. Stewart will run the 440 and the mile relay. Jim McCammon will enter the shot put event and the shuttle relay.
Gordie Heron is in the 220, the high jump, the shuttle relay, the
45, and the shot put. Mansfield Beach will run the 880 and
the mile relay. Bill Vrooman is in the hurdles and the high
jump, while Leo Gansner is in the 440 and the mile.
More Team
Sinclair has entered the shot put
and the mile, and Boothby the 880
and the mile, Ronnie Allen will run
the 880 and the mile relay, and
Klinkhammer the 440 and ths mile
relay. Dobson is in the 220 and the
shuttle relay, and Sott in the 45, the
220, the 45 hurdles, the shot put and
the shuttle relay.
This appears to be a much better
team than that which went ovsr last
January, and judging from the previous result, the Thunderbirds should
once more win the "brass lovirjg
cup."
Final Workouts
The team will have three final
work-outs on Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday at 2 o'clock and every
member of the team must be out. As
the C.P.R. is unsympathetic with our
cause, it will be necessary to be at
the dock before the boat sails. Otherwise the chances of getting to Victoria on the right Friday are,practically nil. Members of the team
must bs at the dock not later than
10 o'clock.

Prevost Is New
Golf Champion
Playing a magnificent brand of golf
over a soggy course, Gerry Prevost
clowned Bob Wilson to take the
U.B.C. Golf Championship last week.
Wilson was a little off his usual form,
while Prevost was decidedly on.
On the way up to the finals, Wilson had bested Wilf Balderson, Peter
Sharp, Ted Char'don, and Gordie Livingston. Prevost had successively
taken Bill Randall, 2 and 1, Lyon
Lightstone, 1 up, Ken Hentig, and,
in the semi-finals, John Berry, the
defending champion.
Prevost's 3core for the morning
round was 74, 3G out, His approach
shots were unsually accurate, and,
when on the green he seemed to have
a phenomenal ability to sink long
putts.

Eng. Rugby, 2nd Div. A
Despite the noticeable presence of
the Rowers' natural element, Varsity's
2nd Division "A" team were able to
hand the Rowing Club squad a 6-3
defeat on Saturday. The forwards
turned in an excellent game, doing
most of ths work due to the wet field
and slippery  ball

has been in ill health for the last
few months, revived suddenly today
when it was announced that a three
game series may be played for thc

is better than no bread at all, or
something. The teams will travel under their own expense, and one-third
of any losses will be carried by each
Union. It is not clear where the
gains (if any) go, but the Provincial
body will probably annex them.
