With the date for tne opening
performance of "QaVMA. Pinafore"
less than a week away, 1he\Musical
Society Is hard at work on the numerous last zobmte details.
For the last tarn -weeks the choruses have bean working practically
every afternoon  and evening.    Be-
: aides these ensemble practices, •mam-
bers have been kept busy by the
many orchestra practises, and principals' rehearsals. The chorus this
year is comprised of IS men and 18
women, which, "With ihe 9 principals
. and an orchestra <ff 20 members
composes a strong cast. "The musical
directorship is ten 'usual in the hands
of Mr. Haydn 'Williams, well known
in musical circles, being a member
. of the Vancouver Symphony Orehes->
' tra. The dramatic "director is "Mr.
Edgar SmWa, remembered for his
work In l«*t year's production "The

A special committee of the Senate

This committee will meet every

function of dbe lawyer is akin to
that of a judgewit is his high duty
to assist in the determination of justice. It is only out of argument that
the truth emergen, end ln each case
there must be Justice on both sides
er it would never have been brought
knto Court; it is the duty of the
lawyer to present as effectively as
passible his side of the «ase, so that
justice will he done. No matter
what happens to a lawyer he will

the great service he la rendering to

"Quibbling and Hypocrisy"
Mr. Hall stated that there is a
tendency to regard the Law entirely
as quibbling and hypocrisy. But although a point in a case may seem
minor and trivial, it is usually not
so in a broad sense. It must be remembered that any decision ot the
Court makes Immutable Law, and
that accordingly all material points
must be gone into thoroughly or
bad Law will be made.
Necessary Qualification
It is necessary that every lawyer
take the attitude of a judge to some
extent and look at the underlying
principles of Law governing a particular caso. A real understanding
of the principles of Law and a sense
of justice will enable a lawyer to
tell the rights and wrongs of a case
without considering the detailed Law
on the case. It must be remembered
that in practically every case new
Law is made—there is no Common
Law which precisely covers it. The
judge can only decide by similar
cases pro and con, which it Is the
duty of opposing counsel to bring
up; and because it is a new case

at Nice from July 30 to August 12,
are being conducted this summer by
the Association for University Untie.
They are being arranged in conjunction with die White Star Line Canadian Service.
All the tours will leave Montreal

first two will occupy fifty-eight
days, terminating at New York on
September 5, while the third not so
extensive, arrives back at Montreal
on August 27.
Points to be visited include London, Oxford, Cambridge, Brussels,
Paris, Rome, t Geneva, and other
famous European cities. At each of
the stopping-points sightseeing tours
will occupy the time of the tourists.
Historical palaces, art galleries, famous universities, and various types
of schools will be visited, so that
the tour will offer an excellent opportunity for modern educators to
keep abreast of the times. A pamphlet issued to advertise the tours
states that "Teachers who wish to
visit any particular school will be
given every facility."

•Mature of Literary Club's
Soccer Invasion
Of Valley Town
Prove* Eventful
Accompanied by Professor Todd,
more than thirty eeeoar (enthusiasts
packed themselves into eta cars and
traversed Fraser Valley needs on
Wednesday in the second Annual
Chilliwack invasion.
Leaving Broadway and Xingsway
at 9 a.m. the caravan proceeded to
Abbotsford where the team held a
workout on Main Street for the benefit of themselves and the natives.
The iCherry City was reached at
high noon and G. H. Q. established
at the Royal Hotel and here the
travellers fortified themselves for the
forthcoming ordeal with the contents
of their lunch baskets. Following
the meal a majority of the athletes
retired for a pre-game siesta while
the fans amused1 themselves in the
lounge with such playthings as pianos, banjos and cuckoo clocks.
Arriving at the scene of action,
the feminine element of the rooters'
section expressed chagrin at the
somewhat muddy condition of the
field. This difficulty was remedied
through the efforts of the long suffering escorts who expended a great
deal of energy transporting benches
and planks to act as substitutes for
the requested Sir Walter Raleigh
cloaks. A feature of the game was
the kick-off at which ceremony Babe
Wright of the visitors officiated with
the aid of a pair of borrowed shoes.
Supper at the hotel partook of the
nature of a banquet complete with
after dinner speeches and a waitress who was invaluable In assisting
the diners to make rapid decisions.
The culminating event of the day
IRaUUne.Johnson was the subject of
ji paper given hy Miss May Bescoby
to the {Literary Forum on Tuesday
'9 see tier yet as she stood, in all
fwaju tthe .Ideal typo of ber race,.
Hthr And u&ciive, with .clean-cut aquiline features, olive-red complexion
and long dark .hair" was the description given J?y .Ernest Thompson Solon, quoted by Miss Bescoby. She
gave an interesting account of Miss
Johnaan's childhood, saying that although ithe authoress' education was
not extensive, she was very well
read. Bofore she was twelve she had
read Sentt, JLangfellow, Byron and
Shakespeare. Ber mother encouraged ber to write verse and soon
had the pleasure of seeing her
dwagbter'j work in print.
In 1892 Mr. Frank YeJgh. president
of the Toronto Young Liberal Club,
heard Pauline Johnson recite some
of her own work, and waa so impressed that a public recital was arranged at which she triumphantly
recited her latest poem, "The Song
My Paddle Sings." Then through
Mr. Yelgh it was also arranged that
she should undertake a recital tour,
giving her own poems ln costume.
During the next two years Miss
ilohnson    earned    enough    money,
through her recitals, to enable her
to go to London, England and publish her first volume of poems, "The
White Wampum."   In 1903 the Geo.
N. JMorang Co, of Toronto, published
a second volume of poems entitled
"Canadian Born."    Both these volumes were received very favourably
by the public and by the critics.
fettles in Vancouver
In 1908 after a number of recitals
given in Eastern Canada, Miss Johnson went to England again.   "It was
at this time that she made her first
appearance in Steinway Hall under
the distinguished patronage of Lord
and   Lady   Strathcona,"   said   Miss
Bescoby.    "After   another   tour   of
Canada she decided to give up her
public   work,   to   make   Vancouver,
B. C„ her home, and to devote herself to literary work."
Shortly after settling down in Vancouver the exposure and hardship
the authoress had endured began to
tell on her and her health completely broke down. A trust was formed
by some of the leading citizens of
her adopted city for the purpose of
collecting and publishing, for her
benefit, Pauline Johnson's later

The appointment of a committee
to draw up and submit new eligibility rules to the A. M. S. at a meeting to be held on Friday, February
26, was decided by Students' Council
on Wednesday night at their postponed weekly meeting. The student
executive also discussed at length
the motion recently passed at the
W. U. S. meeting which recommended that the women refrain from taking the men to supper at public
places on the nighf of the Co-ed
Ball. After an hour's deliberation
the action was approved.
Knotty Question
Eligibility and Its problems were
introduced into the evening business by a letter requesting an Al tia
Mater meeting to amend the constitution and signed by ten members
of the student body. Although
twenty signatures are necessary,
Council decided to call the meeting
and clear up the question as soon
as possible. With the letter were
suggestions on a new "ten-point"
eligibility system now in use tn an
Oregon university. Any student,
whether below or above th? fifty
percent mark could participate In
one major sport according to thlt
new system.
However, the Committee, consisting of the presidents of the two athletic associations as well aa the
Junior Member, will only consider
eligibility rules now used by other,
western Canadian universities
"Gross Injustice"
The motion concerning the Co-ed
BaU and far which the W. U S.
meeting last Wednesday was called,
read "That the W. U. S. recommend
that the women do not take the
men to dinner at public places before the Co-ed nor to supper afterward." It was upheld by some of
the male members on the executive
that It was a "gross Injustice" and
an "Infringement on the personal
rights of the student." According
to the President of the W. V. S.
plans for dinner parties at downtown hotels had already been cancelled  by  conscientious  co-ed)
A series of Ice hockey games between the University of Southern

Featuring Gems
From 'Pinafore'
took the form of a dance in the
Legion Hall at which the visitors
were the guests of honor. A short
speech by Ev. King, the presentation
of a picture of the Varsity soccer
team to the hosts and an enthusiastic, if not tnueful, rendering of certain college songs demonstrated to
the residents of the Valley City the
appreciation of the visitors for the
hospitality which they had received.
Details of the return trip to Vancouver were not "covered" by reporters.
The second recital of the Musical
Society for the Spring term, held in
the Auditorium Thursday noon, featured Brahms piano quintette, given
by visiting artists, and selections from
"H.M.S. Pinafore" by the Musical Society chorus, with full orchestral accompaniment.
The selections from "Pinafore" were
admirably presented, showing great
promise for the production next week.
Indeed, It seems more than likely that
the performance of thia Gilbert and
Sullivan opera will eclipse anything
the Society has yet done. The opening men's chorus, "We Sail the Ocean
Blue," had all the verve and rhythm
of a true sailor song. Miss Sophie
Witter, in the well-known solo of
"Buttercup," achieved a distinct success. Her splendid range and colorful tones showed to advantage. The
women's choruses, "Over the Bright
Blue Sea," and "Gaily Tripping," were
marked by an excellent balance of
voices and delicate shading. In the
full choral ensemble the diction was
especially praiseworthy. Mr. Haydn
Williams, conductor, is indeed to be
complimented on the performance of
the Society, and also on the very fine
and sympathetic accompaniment given
by the orchestra.
The students were very fortunate
to have the opportunity of hearing
such an outstanding group of artiste
as Ira Swartz, Grace Hastings Dresser,
Marie Bryant, William T. Jones and
Maurice Miles, all members of the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. They

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
During the last few days when the
Studenta' Campaign has reached the
height of its enthusiasm, we have all
been hearing a great number of opinions expressed by private individuals
concerning the University, and ourselves, the students of U.B.C. In one
Instance we entirely lost sympathy,
and consequently a signature, on account of the impression made by the
initiation of the autumn before last.
The "ceremony" was described as
"degrading." I know others who
would apply this and similar adjectives to it. I think that henceforth
very great changes should be made
in the form of the annual initiation,
for a bad impression brings discredit
upon the University, harms us, and
lasts too long,
Vours truly, J. W. W.

Editor, U.B.C.:
I noticed your editorial ln Feb. Uth
number of your paper regarding the
origin of "O.K." and for your Information I may say that Webster's Dictionary, which I consider one of the best
authorities we have, says: "Probably
from the Choctaw Indian language,
'Okeh,' meaning it is so and not
otherwise." Even Webster appears
rather uncertain, but I would rather
accept this than any other authority
that I have known give an opinion
on the subject.
Yours, J. A. McLEAN.
Class and Club
The old morality play "Everyman"
was the subject of a lecture given by
Mrs. Roys at the German Club, Monday last. The setting of this famous
play is laid in Haindorf, a little town
in northern Czecho Slovakia. The
stage is set in front of the portal of
the village church, once a shrine of
pilgrimage. In this picturesque background is given the old morality play,
which has been revived under Prince
Auersberg and recast by the Austrian
poet, Hugo von Hoffmansthal. The revival of the play has caused many
travelers to visit the village annually.
Vivid lantern slides illustrated the lecture and Impressed the members with
the variety and weirdness ot the play.

Here we are back on page three again after a week of
absence. Things have been happening around the Campus and
when there is a surfeit of news, the Muck Page suffers. However, we have wormed our way into The Ubyssey today and
hope you don't mind the intrusion.
The Fishsoup Mystery, which seemed to disappear from the
face of the earth and the Muck page, is back today with another
thrilling instalment. In case you've forgotten what has been
happening to Blowout and Co., go to the Library and look up
The Ubyssey files for the beginning of the year. The librarians
will be willing to help you.
The Fishsoup
By M. E.
The ghostly figure oozed In my direction. "Come," it croaked. "Not on
your life," I replied.
It beckoned me wildly, "Quick,''
he hissed with a grdan. "Down this
"What?" I exclaimed hurriedly-
It waa getting closer—"Idot, I've
found a trapdoor. Cold as the devil
in there, though. I had to wrap
this dirty old blanket around me."
"But I thought I heard your death-
"No," shouted Blowout, fanning
away the smoke from his face, and
throwing away his cigar—no wonder
he was pale—"that was lust a so-
and-so cat I stepped on in the passage. The blasted thing scratched
my face.  Come on," fie said.
We entered the passage and crept
down stone steps that creaked dismally beneath our feet. Water
seeped out of the stone walls. Bate
flitted around our faces. We stumbled over rats. Just,a humorous picnic party.
Then, a gleam of fire appeared. We
stole noisily towards it. It was coming from a huge cavern. In the
centre was a furnace. Several
Chinamen flitted, slipped, and gurgled near it, "We're in the bnsem'nt.
They're drinking samsenkahilo,"
muttered Blowout with a moan.
We charged. Inspired by the quiet
—except when he was screaming-
ferocity of Blowout, I put up the
battle of my l»fe.   In tbres minutes,
fifteen Chinamen were stabbed,
eight were shot, eleven had their
heads smashed in, twenty-four were
dead, and thirty-four were prisoners.
These we pushed into the furnace.
Then we attacked the bottles—
Later I woke Blowout up. "Wasa-
marrer?" he managed to intimiate.
I told him.
"I'm notl"
"You are!"
After ten minutes of this, we
found the stairs. Blowout, trying
to ascend the wrong set, bumped
into the wall. He sat down and
talked to himself for awhile. Finally
—with my assistance— he got up.
We went up—slowly—to the next
flight. Blowout still talking softly
to himself on the subject of movable stairs. We found ourselves in
a hall. Ten minutes argument failed
to convince Blowout that he had not
got the next dance with a statue of
Aphodrlte. I left the famous detective trying to decide which one of
them he would take home.
I found a door. Not remarkable,
of course, for there were several
doors, but behind this one I could
hear the murmur of voices. I peered
ln.   What do you think I saw? And
you?    Three guesses	
I saw Mr. Medley In intimate con •
tiib. with Suey! I shouted for Blowout, who was vainly trying to light
a cigarette by means of a oicture
of the camp-fire boys, complete with
fire. He came striding up, angrily
demanding why the devil soitebody
didn't flatten the floors, and why
did the knights in armour keep
walking around, did they think it
was a convention or something?

Muckmen Make Merry
at Monstrous Meet
Muck-a-Muck had a relay team of its own in the Arts '20,
although it is not generally known. Our team was a trifle late
but we got off to a flying start when McGoofus left Fairview
grounds at 5:30 in the evening. Whizzing down Main Street, he
gradually overtook a street car but found he had forgotten a
ticket and was forced to walk to the end of his lap.
Chang Suey, waiting patiently at the cor. of Granville and
King Edward Avenue, sped down to Victory Square and located
a map of the city in the Province Building. Hurriedly departing,
he tramped out to the end of lap, where Slnjin Medley Was
anxiously scanning the horizon with<t> < < j  , «   ,
a pair of whiskey-bottles.
After shaking hands Medley, hopping astride a bicycle, hot-footed it
down 41st to Marine. He had a little trouble with stop and go signals
but on the whole (we mean on the
bicycle) he made good time. Transferring the baton to Scribblewell he
watched that doughty youth vanish
into the distance. Oscar found it
tough going on this lap until he
took off his overcoat, but from then
on he tore up and down the hills
as well as his pants.
At Alma and Tenth Co-Co hurled
away his deck of cards and murmuring, "A horse a horse, a kingdom for my horset" he took up the
torch and his cigarettes and sped
upwards along the incline. Here he
caught up with the end of the field
and kindly donated his roller skates
to the Sc. '32 runner. He overtook
two other men, one of them a Theo-
log, swearing so hard you couldn't |
hear him. (Co-Co, not the Theolog).
He reached Sasamat just in time to
miss the "ten to bus." Onward he
plowed through a sea of wondering
faces (one of them the face that
launched a thousand buses) and
passed it on to Sitting Bull at' the
This worthy gentleman found it
hard going to keep up to the* student speedsters so at "Eternity
Where" he brought his panting steed
to a stop and passed the buck on to
the Muck Editor himself. "Thar she
blows," remarked Sitting Bull as he
noticed a co-ed smoking a cigarette.
The Muck-man lafter lacing his
shoes, hurtled down the gutter and
overtook a bewildered Frosh. He
also managed to trip up a Science-
man. After a cup of tea at the Cat
and Parrot he sauntered down the
boulevard to the tune "I'm a hlke-
hlke-hiking down the highway," and
picking up speed and a cigar butt
he accelerated his pace somewhat
and caught up to the leaders of the
race as they approached the Science
Here he stopped for an Inspiration
(we hope it will come soon, yes,
here it is), and turning the corner
on two wheels he grabbed hold of
Forsythe's coat-tails and stole a lift.
Twenty yards from the tape he
stuck a "Slow Sign" in front of the
bewildered Aggie's face and pushed
ahead to win by a lap, a laugh,

The College Bred
(Continued from Page One)
presented three movements from
Brahm'a piano quintette. The first,
"Allegro non Troppo," showed masterly precision and splendid rhythm.
The shading was excellent and on the
whole the instruments were balanced
in tone.
"Andante un Poco Adagio," the second movement, was In some respects
more difficult.   The time was/Varied,
and the entire number harder to interpret.  The phrasing called for much
sustained bowing and several quick j
pizzicato changes.   The piano some-i
times came out a trifle too strongly, |
but the pianist played, at all times, j
with great accuracy.   The first vlo- j
Un had an especially heavy part which
carried through admirably.
The last movement. "Finale Poco
Sostenuto Allegro non Troppo," was
much brighter in tone. Here, too,
the piano had a tendency in certain
parts to draw out the strings but this
was only in occasional passages. In
general, the pianist showed sympathetic restraint. This number called
for much technical brilliance, which
was well supplied by the artists.
Brahms is a difficult composer to present but this quintette gave a splendid artistic Interpretation of the whole
three movemens.

Your Baby and Mine
ByM. E.
Has your baby "bid" you yet for the Co-ed? Perhaps she
has. If so, sit tight and hope you don't get the smallpox. If not,
just note my outline of a few suggestions that might be followed
in an attempt to get a date for the 29th. .
The first thing you should do to impress your baby with
the idea that you want to go to the Co-e4 is to tell her so. If
this brings no results, do not despair. Remember you are just
starting your campaign.
Take your baby to the Shakespearian plays and cover her
with flowers. Tell her that you are sorry there are no plays
on Feb. 29th.
Fresh air is good for your baby. Moonlight has disturbing
effects but they are hardly detrimental. .
Space does not permit me to give any more hints today
but I can provide free advice to any who will write a letter
requesting it. Write me a little note and tell me how you are
getting along.

Hospital, Vancluver, where she died
on March 7, 1913," continued Miss
Bescoby. "According to her wish,
her body was cremated and her
ashes were buried in Stanley Park,
within sight of Siwash Rock. Some
years later a memorial fountain was
erected over her grave, with flint
and feather on one side, and canoe
and paddle on the other.
Book Review
During the second part of the program Miss Mary McGeer gave a
yery Interesting review of Mazo de
la Roche's "Jalna." The speaker detailed the numerous and varying
characteristics of the persons in the
story, the entire action of which
revolved around the tyrannical
Grandmother. It la interesting to
remember when reading "Jalna" that
Mils de la Roche was an only child
and the Whiteoak family is her conception of what a large household
would be like.
by Roderick St.-J.  Qrantham
This novel is after the Russian
fashion—in fact, it is about ten years
behind It.
It deals, in a very convincing fashion, with the murder of a wealthy
undergraduate In this very University. The corpse, Mr. McTavish
O'Sullivan, has been poisoned by
means of a poisoned apple—hence
the title, which has nothing whatso-
eved to do with anything in the
Various people come under sus^
picion, but the murderer is never
suspected except once or twice. Thus
his identity comes as a" complete
The love interest is supplied by a
beautiful, though dumb, freshette. It
Is through her unfailing energy that
the murderer is discovered. She la
led to this step (chasing after the
solution) because the laddie she is
In love with comes under suspicion
(according to Rule No. 89a of the
Detective Stories Handbook for Amateur Writers). Unfortunately this
lad is the real murderer, so there
we have a lovely climax!
Does he murder her? Does she
commit suicide? Does the detective
vanish? Are important papers stolen? Will even your best friend tell
you? We shan't, so there. We recommend this book very highly.
Unfortunately, "Thirteen Green
Men" is written in Russian. We
were therefore unable to read it.

students had it in them.

Accordingly it is the lawyer who includes a consideration of justice in

whether a man continues In Law or
not his three years as a Law stu

ture life It should be part of the
cultural training of the nation to

of Law; they are the root of our social structure and a necessary part
of our culture. Moreover It is ob

of extreme value commercially; it

Aggies Spring Surprise To Cop Relay
Forsythe, Salisbury, Star as
Farmers Capture Traditional
Contest With Driving Finish
Science '34 and Arts '34 Make It Hot For
Aggies, Who Make Hay While the Sun
Shines. To Romp Home in 37 Minutes,
22 Seconds
A terrific effort by Fred Salisbury on the difficult lap 5,
coupled with a driving finish by the two Forsythes, gave the
"dark horse" Aggies their third win in the historic Arts '20
relay Wednesday afternoon.
Perfect weather conditions greeted the eight runners when
they lined up in front of the Fairview buildings at exactly 3:47.
A great crowd of students were on hand to send their various
favorites away and the men set off down a human alleyway
cleared by two motorcycle cops.  For the first two blocks they
remained pretty well bunched but Sinclair of Science '84 gave
his team a lead of 50 feet over Falls.
of Aggie, Coekburn of Theolog fln-N
ishing third.
Sid Swift of Arts '34 provided the
big excitement in the second lap.
Sid arrived on the scene just in time
to get out of his clothes and without any warming up fell to fourth
place. Then the lanky sophomore
started a sprint that brought his
team to first place. Aggies and Science '34 were close on Swift's heels.
Waiting on the wrong corner cost
the sophomores the lead at the start
of the third lap. Charlie Hardwick,
of Aggies set a fast pace to take the
lead but about half way Herb Barclay of Arte '34 forged to the front.
Thia also was a long lap and Bar-
day ran a fine race in overcoming
the early deficit.
Arts '34 started out lap 4 as if
they meant business, Holmes piling
up a lead of 100 yards. This lead
was short-lived, however, Arts '32
coming Into the lead with the Aggfes
holding a steady second place., Theologs and Arts '34 close behind.
The up-hill lap from the Blind
School to 4th and Tolmie brought
about one of the best efforts of the
day when Fred Salisbury of Aggie
gave his team a big lead. Salisbury's fine condition was evidenced
by the fact that he finished this
grind in good shape. Stirling of
Science '34 collapsed but had run
a good race to put his team in second place. Brand of Arts '34 finished third.
Cornish of the Aggies succeeded In
holding his lead in lap 6. Spragge
of Arts '34 displaced Carey of Science '34 for second place and made
some gain on the Aggies.
Forsythe of Aggie held a lead of
100 feet throughout lap 7. Chris
Dalton of Arts '34 was displaced by
Edwards of Science '34, the Artsmen
dropping to third place. Toward the
close of this lap Forsythe sprinted
and gave his namesake a 80 foot
The last lap was a thriller. The
three faculties began a sprint that
brought crowd interest to a white
heat, Science '34 rallying to pass
Forsythe. In passing the Aggie, Tom
Coventry exerted a lot of energy
and had not sufficient drive left to
stave off the whirlwind rush of the
fleeting Aggie.
Entering the mall, Rolf Forsythe
hit a terrific pace and finished a
good hundred feet in the lead. Max
Stewart of Arts '34 finished in third
place about 50 feet behind Coventry
of Science '34. The other teams finished in the following order: 4th—
Science '33; 5th—Science '35; 6th—
.Theologs; 7th—Arts '33; 8th—Science
'32; 9th-Arts '32; lOth-Arts '35.
Time for the event was 37 minutes, 21 4-5 seconds, approximately
three minutes slower than the record.

Soccermen Get
1-0 Trimming
In Chilliwack
Foiled by a slippery field and a
cool goalie, Varsity Soccer team went
down to a 1-0 defeat at the hands
of a tricky Chilliwack aggregation
in the Valley City. Wednesday.
Varsity kept the ball in the cherry
growers territory during a large part
of the time but lacked the necessary polish to bulge the net. With
an inch of mud 'under a light sod
many of the boys spent a considerable period of time on the ground.
McGill, Costain and Al Todd were
outstanding -for the visiting squad,
while any attempt to pick a super
player from the Valley boys would
be unfair to the rest.
Varsity opened with a rush which
produced a shot on the Chilliwack
fort. The home custodian, however,
was on the job and a corner which
was easily cleared was the net result of the attack. The farmers
forced the play for a few minutes,
Frattinger saved from a melee In
front ot the college net and then
Ayres of the Valley forward line,
snapped up a fast pass to sag the
hemp for the one and only tally of
the game
The Blue and Oold forced a couple
of corners but the home team fought
like lions in their own territory and
the situation was never critical. Jimmy Smith collected a pass from centre field, tricked the opposing left
back and with only the goalie to
beat looked good for a score. However his pass was muddled and Varsity lost a golden opportunity. The
half-time whistle blew Just as a shot
from Dave Todd skimmed the bar
on the wrong side.
After the oranges Varsity pressed
hard keeping play in the enemy territory except for a few surprise attacks by the Chilliwack boys. Time
and again the Blue and Oold warriors were on the point of breaking
into the score column, but were repulsed by the lanky goalie who
cleared indiscriminately with punches
throws and kicks. More than a dozen
corners in the farmer territory provided plenty of thrills for the five
hundred spectators.
The team: Frattinger, Costain, McOiU, McDougal, Kozoolin, Wright, L.
Todd, D. Todd, A. Todd, Munday,
For the third time the most famous of Varsity cups will carry the
name of the Faculty of Agriculture
as a result of the brilliant victory
of the farmers over Science '34
Wednesday. For the last 12 years
the traditional silverware has been
moving back and forth among the
different classes, and the number of
surprises greatly outnumber the victories by favorites.
This old eligibility racket is once
more coming to the fore, and the
student body is to review the situation and cast its august opinion.
There are those of us who are not
so ineligible but have been ln plenty
of decidedly warm water Insofar as
the regulations are concerned. However we are not considering that at
the moment.

We may Interpret the attitude of
Students' Council In calling an Alma
Mater meeting as conclusive proof
that the executive has had too much
pressure to bear upon It and is putting the situation before the entire
society. And then again it may just
be a smart move on Council's part.
But it's all a big guess at the best.
The point system, it seems, failed
to attract the Interest of the members of Council, and a concensus of
opinion seems to favor the attitude
of the executive. Simply because the
innovation was equivalent to discarding the rules entirely, and the Student's Council feels that some rules
are necessary.

Aggies came through with a surprise victory in the Arts '20 relay,
and although the time was not as
fast as It has been In former years,
the leaders were stepping along
throughout the contest. The boys
ran Into some trouble at the end of
the second lap when the third lap
runners were waiting on the wrong
street, and the Arte '34 squad lost
100 yards in the mlxup. This one
incident was the only marring factor
In the race.

The two officers performed heroically in clearing the route for the
runners, and are deserving of much
praise for their efforts. The "Ubyssey" bulletin service organized by
Jock Stanton gave a lap by lap account of the event to those who
watched the finish.

At present the standing of
student athletes In the faU term
io not controlled by the regula-

to have tha systems similar to

After falling to paas the new
set of regulations as proposed

President of Men's Athletic,
the President of Women's Athletics, aad the Junior Member,
has been appointed to consider
changes In tiie existing regulations. It Is understood that any
recommendations will not affect

Arti-Science Feud
Ends With Science
'Blades' on Top 8-1
The Arts-Science feud broke out
hi Ice-Hockey when teams from
those faculties clashed Wednesday
night at the Forum, Science proving
their superiority by drubbing the
Arts 8-1.
The game started with a rush up
the ice by Science which was broken up at the Arte blue-line. Arts
then came down and a long shot
from McGregor' wjent wild. The
play continued at centre ice for a
few minutes when Carswell and
Pike, Science, broke-away, fooled
Pegg and Waimsley on defense and
Carswell's shot found the corner of
the Arte net. ,
The second period opened with a
scoring bee for Science. Mathews
scored a nice goal from the left
wing, Pike followed with a solo effort and Carswell followed up with
two more. Arte, slightly befogged,
could not snap out of it until Pike
had scored again twice and Mathews
Arts woke up for a few minutes
and King McGregor scored their only
goal from well out. The slaughter
ended with no further mishaps.
In the best game played this year
the Maccabees defeated Varsity 6-3
ln the last Intermediate Ice Hockey
fixture of the season. Fast, clean
skating and hard checking was featured throughout the contest.
Maccabees got all of the breaks
in the first period, running in three
goals in the first six mintues. Willis
in goal "for Varsity started poorly
but later hit his stride and played
a heady game for the final periods
of the fixture.
Play opened fast in the second
period and McQuaig for the Maccabees scored on a solo effort to give
the squad a 4-0 advantage. Varsity
finally broke into the scoring column when Carswell and Cornelius
combined well to net a brace of
The Maccabees began the final canto by running in two goals in quick
succession. Varsity settled down to
offensive hockey, sending all men
up the ice in an effort to overcome
the 6-2 lead.   After repeated efforts
The inter class soccer competition
will (may?) get under way at last,
after an interminable interlude of
bad weather, when the postponed
feature match between Sc. '34 and
Arts '34 comes off to-day at 12:11
on the upper playing field. Ev.
King, president of the Soccer Club
will handle the whistle, and announces his intention of starting the
game on time regardless of late
comers who might otherwise delay
the fixture.
Science '34 have declared their intention of cinching the Governor's
Cup by taking the Arte contenders
Into camp in the big Knockout Soccer series. Their record ln interclass sport so far is apparently sufficient grounds, for their proprietary attitude towards the much coveted trophy, but Arte '84 are preparing to blast the hopes of the red
shlrted hordes in part at least, by
ruining their aspirations in regard
to the campus soccer championship.
Both teams will be out ln full
strength and the latest reports from
the rival camps indicate that the encounter will be settled in true Arts-
Science style. The referee wishes
to state It is his intention to suppress any undue athletic exuberance
which might bring the noble game
of soccer into disrepute. The outcome should be Interesting whichever way one looks at it.
Golfers swing into action once again
with the playing of the Open Championship and several contestants have
completed first rpund matches. Entry

final count of the game.
By losing this game Varsity lost
n chance to get Into the B. C. playoffs and finished second in the Intermediate League.
