Greak Tragedy
Mr. Wood nid that there had been
some previous dramatic efforts by
those in narch of higher learning
when the university wu a branch
cf McGill University, notably a
Greek Tragedy which may ponibly
have been the cause of the subsequent decline of the old Imperial
Theatre Into a place fit only for
Chinese shows and prize-fights.
The first performance by the newly formed club was characterised by
tiie speaker u a "mad crazy" piece
of work in view of the fact that out
of a cad of twenty-three, eighteen
were women. The play waa "The
New Lady Bantoek," by Jerome K.
Jerome, and wu prennted at the
Avenue theatre; of the costumu Mr.
Wood could only ny that they were
"wdrd and wonderful." The fird
performance turned out to be a huge
succen in spite of tho fad that the
Faculty were dl invited frn, and
that one reporter from a loed newspaper mistook in his enthusiasm tiie

De Valtra's Irish government re-
nlved a entiling denunciation oh
Monday afternoon, when Major A.
O. Carr spoke on "Why De Valera
Won tho Election." Major Carr succeeded In proving that there was no

Speaking of "duty" with regard to
the prtteat-day Iridimah, Major Carr

Carr phrased it. Economic waste
and tht decline of Irish exports were
blamed on De Valera's drastic economic poUcy, which the lecturer described u the exact opposite of Cos-
grave's conriructtve policy.
Cosgrave prophesies another election non—one In which De Valera
wUl "go out on his neck." The economic problems wUl dill remdn to

Do Valera Means Force

his promisu. No attempt is being
made to keep up the schools and
the education of tho chUdren. When
asked whether the government would
go to plecu if De Vdera won removed, Major Carr add, "Tht ra-

Dangerously Sincere
At Mr. Soward'a requed, Major
Carr gave a brief character sketch
of De Valera. "Ho looks something

the biggest churchu in the city of
Toronto, wu packed and hundnds

held to hear the testimony of a certain buslnen man concerning the excellence of the movement. The
speaker made reference to Dr. Rochester's adverse criticism of it from
the point of view that it had no

that, although It Is true it has no

out also that some critics criticize

is not giving Itself to prayer enough.
A. M. S.   Meeting   Monday   Noon Pago Two
Apes and Ivory
By Arthur Mayn
Olaf killed three ravens, and the ravens
very nearly killed Olaf. I heard the story from
a lint-aid man, who heard it from a chocker-
man, who was in the Glory Hole when it happened.
Olaf Ericcson was a big, fair Swede, big wife
waa big and fair too, and their tiny house in
the married quarters aeemed hardly large
enough to hold them. Indeed, when Karen was
making homebrew or cooking, it wasn't anything like large enough. At such times, Olaf
was sent out, an exile, to split wood or to play
with the children. He didn't mind though, because Karen's homebrew was famous and her
cooking was something for even a pampered
logger of the Good Times to marvel over. Especially her pies. The single men had pie in
their lunches every day, but theirs was' blueberry or apple, never the thick,creamy wedges
that Olaf brought go carefully to work in bis
lunch-kit. At noon, in the shade of the donkey,
he would glory over his mates, pie in hand.
"Only on Sundays cream pie for you," he'd
chuckle, "and for me, any day I like. Boys, its
better you get married!"
The boys would envy him, and drifting over
the slashings on wide wings, the ravens would
watch with beady eyes, envious alao. And, plotting around the donkey after the crew had gone
in, they made their plans. The next nooning,
when Olaf laid his pie on a stump as was his
habit while he munched his sandwiches, a still,
swift shadow darted down. The pie took wings;
the boys howled their delight and Olaf, swearing, vowed revenge on the ravens.
He got it too; in spite of camp rules, he
brought out a rifle the next day. The questions
the others asked went unanswered, but at noon,
when the ravens gathered for their scraps, he
began shooting. A good marksman, he clipped
the heads of three before the rest went crying in fright to the safety of the timber.
For a while nobody said anything. Then
Flash Macdonald spoke in an odd, shaky voice.
Flash was the whistle punk. Nearly seventy
he was, a good boy, but a little old for the
"Lord, Olaf!" he said. "You—you know what
you done?"
Olaf, gun in hand, didn't reply. He was
"You killed 'em." Flash poked one of the
wing-spread corpses with a cautious boot. "It's
loggers' sperrits you done for, Olaf Ericcson.
You been in the woods twenty-fi' years, an'
know you must never harm a raven. Hell, we
liked you Olaf, an' we're gonna miss you—"
He turned away, muttering.
Olaf was worried. Bard-boiled he might be,
but that was no help where spirits were concerned. Better now if he'd left the rifle at
home with Karen. There were rather unpleasant stories about what happened to men
who killed ravens, good stories to hear around
the fire at night, but—
He shivered in tiie warm May sunshine as
he went out reluctantly to the haulback bight.
The ravens knew. They weren't in the
slashings and they weren't on the grade, but
up at the edge of the green timber they talked
it over in their hoarse, strangely human-sounding voices. Then, an hour before quitting-time,
a single bull-raven flitted down to the bight
and began, softly, to call signals.
"Hi!" he went, then again, "hi—hi—!" An
old bull-raven giving highball calls, those rarely used, forbidden signals that would send the
logs down like the wrath of God, as long as
the rigging held!
"Flash," said Olaf on the way in, "be careful, see? Don't toot unless you're sure its the
riggin-slinger, an' then keep your ears flap-
pin'. Them devils is out for me! He hesitated
as another idea came to him. "Mebbe you'd
better give the job to one of them college boys
on the section. They're spry-like, an' young."
"Say!" Flash was almost crying with rage.
"I been in the woods since Paul Bunjan logged Montana flat, an' no young sprout gets
my jerk-line. You just gotta watch yourself,
Daysand days went by. The steel lines sang,
and the skyline-carriage rumbled overhead and
the great brown logs rumbled in and although
there were no more ravens around the donkey
at noon, the old bull still called his highball signals, softly, from the edge of the triangle. There
was something suggestive, unnerving about it.
The chokermen and the rigging-slinger quit,
and new men came up from Vancouver, but
Olaf the hooker and Flash the 'punk stayed,
one because he knew the ravens would get him
even in far off Haidaland, the other because he
was anchored to his job, and was Olaf's friend.
"They're workin' on me," he said, after a
week had gone, "they're workin' on my brain,
Olaf, some day—if so be they catch me a mite
slack—I'll just blow that highball and at the
wrong time."
And that same day it happened. Olaf was
square in the road when, sharp and clear £is

An outline of the vocational guidance programme being carried on at the University of
Toronto is published in this issue. The plan has
a great deal to recommend it. In the present
period of uncertainty, when so many students
are in something of a daze with regard to their
future careers, there is no doubt that sincere
advice from qualified speakers would be very
much appreciated.
It has been suggested that rising young business and professional men should be invited
to come out to the University and give short
talks, to the undergraduates on the choosing of
their careers.
The co-operation of the Alumnae Association would be of great benefit in thia reapect.
In Toronto grads of eight or ten yean standing give regular talks on their own struggles
in securing jobs and getting established in business life. Students of this University would
certainly appreciate such an effort on our own
campus, and doubtless a considerable stimulus
would thus be given to the solution of that ever-
present problem—What are we going to do
after we graduate?
How about it, Alumns?

Having given the atudent body time to make
up its mind on the proposed new constitution,
we now propose to give our views on the subject.
The first clauae that comes under our eagle
eye is the one which gtipulatea that it is necessary to have the signatureg of one-hundred
members of the Alma Mater Society to call an
extra-ordinary meeting of the society. It seems
to us that the number required should bear
some relation to the student body, say 10 per
cent of a quorum. In this way if the student
body dropped to one thousand it would not take
one tenth of the atudent body to call a special
It rather appears to us that the whole constitution is tending to give Council too much
power financially. It is true that they are the
elected representatives of the society, empowered to govern the society as they see fit, but their
actions should be subject to some pre-check,
rather than a post-check, as is allowed by the
power of the Alma Mater Society to annul any
Council minute.
It seems to us that the whole structure of
student government has become top-heavy. By
a minute of the Alma Mater Society, passed
in the days of prosperity, Council is empowered to spend up to 15 per cent of the gross income of the sciety in administering the funds
of the society.
Should not this percentage be cut down
during the depressed condition in which we
find our present financeg: It seems a shame to
strike out at the managerial system which was
inaugurated two years ago and has proved such
a success and a saving, but nevertheless the
question must be faced. It should be possible
to evolve some system now that we have a department of Commerce pretty well established,
whereby the greater part of the routine work
of the Accountant's office could be handled by

ahead". Not a highball, but a single, ringing
bark. Flash, caught off guard for the instant,
jerked his whistle-wire even as he had prophesied. Olaf saw the logs over him, shutting
out the blue of the sky as he dived for cover.
They cleared him in one tremendous skip-jump;
he picked himself up unhurt, but white as a
ghost under his bronze.
Twisting hh hat in his hands that evening
on Olaf's porch, Flash spoke miserably: "I didn't mean to. They—honest they made me. Olaf,
we better quit the woods."
"No!" Karen shok her blonde head in decided fashion. "What else would you find to do?
My pie it was that started this, and maybe
they'll make the ravens forget it."
So Olaf gave pies to the ravens. He took
three huge golden rounds out in the morning.
He set them on stumps and waited anxiously.
The old bull-raven didn't call, and at noon,
slowly, drifting in like shadows, the raven-
people came to the feast. They gorged themselves with their old freedom, and they even
fed from Olaf's gloved hand.
Olaf never pointed a gun at a raven again.
He ate his cream pie with all his lost happiness,
and when dead loggers in their glossy black disguise made free with his lunch, he only grinned.

of Derry Tye. The absence of Derry
from the line up has dealt a severe
blow to the team, as his position at

Derry sustained an injury to his

wishes to take no chances of per-

he will be back In his usual position

teams. The time of 36.9 and three-fifths, although two minutes
outside the record set by Arts '30 in 1028, was considered good

To the many students who were unable to follow the race in automobiles, tlie efforts of the Pep Club in
broadcasting the highlights of the race
via the telephone and the megaphone, striking distance of the second place
came as a godsend.   Running results'teanii Humphrey (A. T. C), Patterson   on   (Arts  '36),   and  Donaldson

When Dave Pugh started this stretch

In the meantime, Ward of Anglican

It seems that Arts '33 really acquired unto themselves a win in the
interclass basketball league last week.
But not the way you think. Incred-
Itlble as it may appear it was the
invincible Juniors that came out on
the short end of the affair. Seniors,
evidently a little alarmed at tht way
thty havt been consistently dropping games, despite all that Maestro
Tervo, "Princeton Bill" Lucas, or tho
Wilty-Hscktr combination could do,
cast about for a remedy. They discovered that in tho encounter against
14 the aforesaid Juniors failed to
have a team on hand at ton minutes
after twelve. Despite the fact that
when the ex-spphs did appear thty
wore trounced soundly. Thty protested and got the derision of default,
a rather odious one to sty tho ltart.

The Tribe of Maestro has battled
through the first round of their
championship playoffs with Normal
Orads when you road this, and have
probably tucked a win away. Nor-
malttes ran up a 31-31 win over
Y.M.C.A. In their sudden-death encounter last Monday night. It will
be remembered that tht only gamt
that tho Tervtana dropped In their
entire schedule was lost to Y.M.C.A.
in the first encounter of the season
by a score of 24-25. One point! What
a team! It is Interesting to ponder
over the result of a struggle between
our senior A team and the B's. Ah,
don't laugh, or even snicker! It is
our earnest belief that there is at
least one squad In the Burrard
League that would go down under
the fast onslaught of our Tervians.
There would at least be nothing onesided about the affair. Perhaps the
old lady will sponsor Just such an
encounter, starring two great Blot
and Gold champions: winners of the
V. and D. Senior B division versus
winners of Al. Hardy's hook-up!
That latter bit seems no idle forecast after what happened to the

representatives of that class, C.
Brown, and J. Clotworthy, won all

The first clash of a U.B.C. team
with Washington this year will take
place on Saturday, whtn tht golf
team will Journey down to Seattle
to tangle with the Huskies.
Tht strongott team that has represented B. C. will make the trip,
the squad is well balanced and
should make a strong bid for the
championship. The boys have all
been out practicing diligently every
day since the snow has disappeared,
and some very low cards have been
turned ln.
The greatest hope is in number
one team composed of Charlie McCadden and Ted Charlton, Who are
considered two of the best players
ih the city, both having held the
City Junior Championship.
Tlie second team to tee of will be
Sandy Marling and Bill Castleton.
Sandy is the Junior Champion In
Victoria, and Bill Is one of the best
at Quilchena. If Castleton's hand
heals before the match (he cut It
open in the chem. lab.) there is in all
probability three points coming our
Next in line comes Gerry Prevost
and Ted Wilkinson. Prevost is one
of Varsity's stalwarts while Wilkinson is one of the three rookies, yet
to be baptized by intercollegiate
Ken Hentig, another rooky, and
Harry Horsman, another stalwart,
comprise the fourth group. Harry
and Ken are a Uttle erratic right
now, but they guarantee unless the
boys below the Une shoot pub-part,
they (Washington) don't stand a
Gordie Livingston and Lome Teet-
zel round up the team. The two
are both steady shooters and can be
relied upon to put up a good fight
for dear old Alma Mater.
Through the intent of the Directors of the Point Grey Golf Club,
Duncan Sutherland, one of the foremost professionals in B. C, will accompany the team. There's not much
that Dune, doesn't know about the
game and some of the hints he will
pass out should be a valuable help
to the players.
Varrity started a rally which carried thtm to a four point margin at
the interval. Nicholson started thlngt
going whtn he batted ih Osborne's
rtbound. Bob himself foUowed with
a fold, and Nicholson put In another
nice basket. Harvey Mclntyre, apparently rattled by the attention paid
hlfti by thi crowd, fouled Osbornt
and left tht gamt on personals, bring
replaced by Freddie Armstrong.
Osborne scored on a foul, and
PUrvtt missed one as the whistle
went for halftlme with tho Mora
16-13 In Vanity's favor.
Students Slmrt Ahead
Tha Collegians started the second
stanza ti if they were going to flood
Sparlings with basket*. Rann Matthison took a pass from Osbortie to
score on the first Varrity break.
Bardsley duplicated his play tram
the tip-off, and the ball was hardly
ln play again when Ken Wright went
through for another. Thttt thrae
baskett, which were all one-handad
effort* from the right ride, sent Varrity ahead at 23-13. Sparl-ig* called
time-out and talked things over.
After the game re-started, tht
Storamtn set out to wipe out the
Blue and Gold lead. With only a
foul shot by Matthiaon in reply, they
ran in ten points through Kennington, Purves and the Armstrong
brothers, Freddie and Eddie. With
the score now 23-22 in the Collegians'
favor, PI Campbell tallied with a
one-handed shot from away out, but
Eddie Armstrong came right back
with a basket to reduce the margin
again to a single point.
Plenty of Thrills
Matthison tallied a foul, only to
have Kennington equalize. A basket
by Rann was answered by one from
Kennington, and then Wills scored
on his own rebound to again bring
the Storemen within one point of
Varrity. CampbeU, however, re-
galiitd the three point margin when
ht dropped one in from near contra,
and although Freddie Armstrong
scored a foul, the Collegians managed to hold tht lead till the game
