Junior Member to be
Elected Today by
Student Voters
Students easting their ballots today for Junior member were given
a laat opportunity to choose their
vlotim Wednesday noon in the Audi
torlum when all .three candidates,
Harry Lumsden,* Art Rae and Todd
Tremblay made  campaign speeohes.
Noting the disappointing attendance, Basil Roblnaon, chairman,
scored the atudent body generally
on Ita lack of Intereat In the filling of auoh an Important offloe.
All three oandldates promised em
phatloally to support the "Balance-
the-Budget" plan put forth by the
Students' Counoil Tuesday. Harry
Lumsden, Commercial eourae atudent and flrat apeaker, aaaured the
audience that hia experience In financial mattera would be a deolded
aaaet to him if elected.
Hla aeconder, Ruth Wilaon, outlined Lumaden'a enviable High School
and Unlveralty record. "Any doodle
do," ahe said, "will not suffice for
a slogan ln this election."
Art Rae, fourth year Solenoeman,
backed by Charles Lighthall, banked
his political effort on the reatabliah-
ment of "apirit" on the oampua. The
junior member, ln charge of the
Freshman class, had a golden opportunity he pointed out to mould
them aa he wished. Hia office aa
president of the Mamooks would be
Ideal for thla purpose. Again, as a
Mamook, co-operation ln preparation for the all-Important Homo-
coming would be facilitated.
Todd Tremblay, third year Agriculture student, asserted that any
platform outside of close co-operation with the Students' Council was
unnecessary aa they already had
mattera well ln hand for the year.
Hla aeconder, Jaok Stevenaon, In
a leaa modest manner revealed the
high scholastic standing of his candidate, a factor which would give
him a maximum of time to spend In
hla new dutlea. He asserted alao that
the likeable peraonality of Tremblay
would not come amlaa in making
himaelf popular with the Freshman
olass.

UNIVERSITIES CO-OPERATE;
TORONTO RECRUITS 1000
TORONTO, Oct. 1 (CUP)—One thousand University of To-
ronto students signed up for the Canadian Officers' Training Corps
by October 1, and women students are making arrangements to
organize for national service as Canada's largest university enters
war-time session, it was announced here today.
Training of the C.O.T.C. at tbe
University of Manitoba began last
week, but a shortage of uniforms
forced the students to drill In civil
Ian clothes. No figures on ths Man
Itoban enrollment have yet been re
laased.
The Unlveralty of Saakatohewan
reporta 200 recrutta up to date aa a
new regulation on the Saskatoon
campus allows graduates to take
training.
At McOlll University authorities
have Informed students that all those
who enlist for active service will
have their feea refunded. Special
war adviaory boards have been set
up there and at Toronto.
Go Collegiate—
Buy a Varsity
Pennant Now!
The new U.B.O. pennants have arrived I Whether or not they are here
to stay Is entirely up to you lads and
lassies who will be buying them; but,
having seen them, your reporter Is
ready to wager his ticket on the
World Series that they are here for
keeps.
Each  one  of  these  colorful  emblems of oollege spirit Is "a thing
of  beauty and  Joyfer".    They are
well-nigh a   yard   long,   with   the
Varsity crest and the golden letters
"U.B.C." standing out beautlfuUy on
a blue background.     Any   student
should be proud to own one.
If you're a football fan, you'll find
the new pennant ls as indispensable
to your equipment as the peanuts you
buy on the grandstand.    If you're a
home-body,   there    must   be   a   bare
patch somewhere on your walls that
simply cries out for your college banner.    If you have a friend at some
other university, you can be sure no
gift would be more welcome than one
of these smart symbols of UJ3.C.
Pennants may be obtained at Mr
Horn's office on  payment   of   two
dollars.     This   prioe   Is  one   which
compares very favorably with that
charged  for   similar   gennanta   on
other oampl.
Remember,   If   you   want   to   win
friends  and   Influence  people,   get   a
pennant.

DEMOCRACY IN U.S.A.
SUSTAINED BY
FOHUM
"Principles of Democracy have not
declined In the United States since
the World War," was the decision of
the Parliamentary Forum In their
debate  Thursday  evening.
The winning side was upheld by
Bob Bonner, with Arthur Fouka as
the opposition.
Arthur Fouks denned democracy
as that outlined by Jefferson. He
atrlved to ahow that the principles
ao outlined have been abuaed by the
government. *
Fouka compared the European
dlctatora to thoae ln the United
States, stating as an example, Huey
Long who dictated to the radio and
press and had his own secret police.
"Equality," he continued, "has also suffered. Communists are hounded out of the United Statea, while
Fascists are given police protection
and help."
INDIVIDUAL  FREEDOM
Bob Bonner claimed that Fouks
had picked out minute reatrlctiona ln
a vast country, restrictions which
are annoying but not significant.
"These factors are not of much Importance to true democracy," he
stated.
He showed that the individual has
freedom of press and speech and
equality In  the  court.
Bonner claimed that Fouks Ignored many facts that show the increase
of democracy.
Capitalists are restricted In the
United States, affirmed the opposition, 'while nationalist movements
and other forma of dictatorships
were being organized. The private
enterprise la being bought out by
the  capitallata.
Campaign
Committee
Reports
The atudent campaign committee
was reorganized with a new personnel during the latter part of April
thla year. It was decided that the
policy of the committee would be to
support the previously determined
general objects of the earlier committees, with alight ohangea In method..
Considerable work waa carried out
In reaearch on aclence graduatea of
this university, by Charles Nash, as
a atart on the general programme.
But unfortunately, as you may
have Imagined the work of the committee was somewhat interrupted by
the advent of a fairly general European war involving the British Empire, of which Canada is a part.
The committee decided that any
activity along the ordinary lines was
both Impracticable and Inadvisable.
At the aame time the Brock Memorial Building plans were finally
completed by the various authorities, and the Oovernment of Britiah,
Columbia gave comparative assurance that the proposed 8300,000.00
Preventive Medicine Building would
shortly become a reality on thia
campua. *
The war did not Interrupt the progress of the erection of the Brook
Memorial Building, but it did silence
the proposals of the B.C. Oovernment to erect the Preventive Medicine Building.
However, there are obvioua objections to any continuance of Campaign Committee activities, as public
opinion will not approve any request
from the students of thla univeraity
for money or other thlnga material
while Canada Is fighting for her life
ln defence of her precious democracy.
It Is with this thought that the
Campaign Committee tenders its
resignation to the Studenta' Council of the A.M.S. of the University
of B.C. with the added recommendation that no further activities
along Campaign Committee Unea

The deficit on the 1088-80 budget
waa   announoed    aa    89,010.00    by
Evan apRoberts, treasurer of the
Students' Council.    The direct result of this financial circumstance
will be a out In   the   budgeta   of

The  Brock  Memorial  Building   Is

December 1 and It Is hoped that furnishings and  other  Interior  flxturea

possible, will be held In the new

When tendering the resignation ot
the   Student   Campaign   Committee,
Chairman John Oarrett on behalf of
the   committee   recommended   "that
the funds remaining to the credit of
the   Committee,   which    amount    to
approximately     $300.00,     ahould     be
transferred to the general Alma Mater Society Fund."
VARSITY BAND
GETS AWARD LETTERS POR SERVICE
The Varsity Band held Its flrst
meeting of the season on Saturday,
September 30 with ten new members
present.
Under its able bandmaster, A. W.
Delamont, and its president, Oeorge
Olass, the band will revise old college
songs and play rousing new marches.
The band now has a membership of
forty.
The Students' Council has granted
award letters which the band members wtll wear on bright blue and
gold sweater uniforms. If possible
these will be ready for Homecoming.
The only handicap so far ls the
lack of a suitable practice room. Nevertheless, the band is progressing
steadily.
The band will make Its flrst public
appearance at the Rugby game on
Saturday, October 7.
Students Attacked And
Searched Near Campus
Two Union College Residents Bruised and
Scratched After Bush Encounter
Two university students were attacked and searched by four
or five unknown assailants last Tuesday evening. The attaok
ooourred in the bush a short distance from Union Oollege, whers
the two are living.
The   students,   Norman   OUI   and*
Ernest Mason, were on their way to
Salisbury Lodge when several men
leaped from the bush and bore them
to the ground.
"It was dark, and we couldn't tell
how many of them there were," Oill
told the Ubysssy, "but there were
four or five anyway,"
The two put up a good fight, but
were  outnumbered,
"They searched our pookets, but
we had no money with ua," aald OUI.
"Then one of them whistled and they
beat lt."
A search party, made up of Union
College boardera failed to reveal any
trace of the maraudera. Oill and
Maaon were not injured aerioualy,
but sustained bruises and aoratches.
Plant Laid For
Varsity Dance
Orchestra
Coincidental with the opening of
the Student's Union Building early
in the new year a Varaity Danoe
Oroheatra will make ita debut at one
of the atudenta' aoclal functions, It
is hoped by campus musicians.
The new band, aooording to Oil
Clark, organiser, already shows
promise of being good, as the talent
on the campua thia year Is particularly   encouraging.
The band will have a seven-piece
line up, three sax, two brass and two
rhythm. Most of the men have fallen
naturally Into place but try-outs will
be necessary for one or two of the
chairs.
Any undiscovered talent, especially
saxes, trumpet or drums, is asked
to get in touch with Oil Clark
through the Arta Letter Rack.
FORTY  STUDENTS
ATTEND ARTABAN
CONFERENCE
Forty members of the Student
Christian Movement will leave tomorrow for a three-day conference
on "Christianity ln Crisis" at Camp
Artaban,  Gambler  Island.
Boats will sail from the Vancouver
side of the West Vanoouver Ferry
Wharf at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. tomorrow. Students are expected to bring
one   lunch   and   their   blankets.
Enrollment In the seven study
groups to be set up on the campus
this fall Is now well ahead of schedule.
RADIO SOCIETY
WILL PRESENT
DRAMA
If tentative Radio Society plana
are realized, the flrat dramatic program of the term wtll be preaented
on Sunday, October 10. The program, which will be of half hour
duration, will probably be a dramatization of one of Richard Harding
Davla'  atorlea.
Club officials voicea tne hope that
there would be more applications
for audltiona. Several audltiona, It
was announced, have already been
successful. Prospective sporta announcers will be given a chance to
prove their 'worth at the Canadian
Football game Saturday.
The weekly news broadcast at 7:40
tonight, will feature an Interview
with Maury Van Vllet.
CANDID   SNAPPERS
ANNOUNCE PLANS
TO   ORGANIZE
Plana for the formation of a Photography Club are rapidly naarlng
completion, aooording to Darral
Braldwood, L.S.E.  Prealdent.
The new club, whloh will hold an
organisation meeting next Thuraday
noon In Arta 106, has been under dlsousslon for some time. It Is thought
that the appearance of a large new
orop of candid photo-hunters on tho
campus this fall has made formation
of the club advisable.
Members of the Photography Club
will meat regularly to discuss pictures taken, and wtll Invite well-
known professional commercial and
art photographera to apeak to them
on the more Intereating aspects of
their hobby.
With the completion of tho
Union Building, oampus photographers will have aooeas to a completely modern dark-room, Those
membera who have had experience
developing and printing Alms will
be given an opportunity to do most
of the Totem photography work.

How To Behave At Football Games
COLLEGE NIGHT
AT ORPHEUM
SUNDAY
"College Night" is the theme of the
midnight show to' be held at the
Orpheum Theatre, Sunday, October
8.
Stan Patton's orchestra will be the
atage attraction featuring Varsity
songs with  the aid  of the  Mamooks.
"Fifth Avenue Girl," starring Ginger Rogers will be the screen presentation.
By JOAN THOMPSON
There are no hard and fast rules
for behaving at football games. They
vary greatly with the type of spectator. This may be either the fanatical male who follows every play
with an eagle eye and a lack of conversation, or the female who accompanies him, not because she knows
anything about football, but for the
sole reason that she's thrilled because Johnny asked her.
The   following  rules  have   no  bearing   whatsoever   on   the   former   and
a great dea.«*of bearing on the latter.
In the flrat place, Jennifer, come
well clothed. There Isn't a thing he
can do ubout keeping you warm ln
a   crowd   of   some   odd   thousand
people and In broad daylight.
PEANUTS
Secondly, make him buy you peanuts. These are indispensable because they serve a multitude of uses.
Chewing peanuts is the best alternative to watching the game when the
game becomes boresome. They serve
as a source of quick energy when
your spirits flag. Most important,
peanuts are an excellent subterfuge
when your escort asks your opinion
of a certain play. You can always,
In the interests of good manners,
refuse to answer becauae your
mouth is full.
Concerning the disposal of the
shells; If the man ln front has a
hat-brim   they   go   there,   if   not,   in
your   escort's   pocket.
Thirdly,   don't   ask   questions,   if
you   ask   Johnny   whether  huddles
are   for   the   purposo   of   gossiping
about the other team,  It Is simply
displaying Ignorance and he'll take
the  blonde  next time.
If you find yourself in the position
of  not  knowing whether  to  applaud
a brilliant play, watch Johnny. If he
cheers   loudly   yovi   are   permitted   to
look   quite   happy   about   it   and   say
"Wasn't  that   marvellous?"
Fifthly and lastly, Jennifer, never
make comments on the players. The
fullback you met last Christmas who
Is so handsom-f and who plays so
wonderfully, invariably belongs to
the other team.

SANS THOUGHT
Students of international affairs, or of economics, delight in
retaining what is known as the objective point of view. Events
of the day must be observed from the sidelines, and the leaders of
the involved countries criticized as players on a rugby team.
Authorities on international events prefer to be spectators rather
than players.
Every university student today likes to feel that his opinion
on world affairs is at least partly thought out, and at least partly
intelligent.    But he still prefers to remain an onlooker.
The present war to a large extent prohibits the continuance
of this "detached" attitude. The British Empire, England, and
Canada are at war with Germany. We, the citizens of Canada,
have become active players in a world game, the grim game of
war.
Our press is censored, and all that We read is almost certain
to be somewhat colored. The cunning propaganda methods of
this age are and will be in use. It probably should not bo otherwise.
But the question which lies before us, the citizens nnd lovers
of democracy in the world, is whether or not we can survive the
abnormal conditions of war and can retain that sanity of outlook
whieh typifies the peoples of the democratic nations of the present
■world.
Propaganda depends upon an emotional appeal to its public.
The aim of propaganda is to shatter any emotional serenity which
exists in order to pave the way for satisfactory public reaction to
government war enterprises.
Subjection to a permanently propagandized press is bound to
eavise an ultimate transformation in the thinking of a large proportion of the nation. Emotionalism will tend to destroy that rational
outlook which is essential to good government in ony country.
If the rational point of view is lost, hate is bound to grow in the
minds of ourselves and of our neighbors.
Hate breeds war.    Hate destroys peace.
The most important question of tho present chaotic situation
seems to be can the Allies, rather than win the war, be sure that
a fair, lasting arrangement will guarantee peace at the close of
the war.
Tremendous as the task of winning the present war may seem,
there are few people in the Allied countries who think that Germany will, emerge victorious. Many there are, however, who fear
« second error such as the much criticized Treaty of Versailles.
No blnme'cnn be attached to any person or persons for the
terms of Versailles. Propaganda, emotionalism, hate had taken
their inevitable toll on sane minds. Even the greatest of intellects
lost that foundation of unbiased justice.
It appears to be the duty of university students throughout
the world to try to defend their countries, and the sacred principles of their countries, but simultaneously to defend within themselves the far more sacred right, and privilege of honest, sane
thought.
Irving Discusses Social
Questions and Student
States Value of
Social Sciences
and Philosophy
"Anyone who hopes to count today
ln the discussion of social problems
must be well-informed both ln the
sooial aolenoea and In aoclal philosophy," stated Professor J. A. Irving
ln a talk to the Social Problems Club
yeaterday.
"The Social Problems Club Is a
very good organisation," Mr. Irving aald, "because It provides an
outlet for atudenta' Interests tn social questions. Thla Intereat Is
naturally greater today than ever
before because of the war situation."
The point was made that the study
of sooial solenoes Is too often divorced. In the universities, from the
study of social philosophy. An idsal
university curriculum would mako
provision for ths study of both fields
together.
"The   sooial   aolenoea    give    the
student a knowledge of the facts
of the sooial and historical process," said Mr. Irving, "and social
philosophy develops an appreciation of social values."
He stated that social philosophy
haa two funottona. It undertakea to
provide a crltloal apparatua for evaluating the methods and asaumptlona
made by the aoolal aolenoea. It alao
glvea a training In value Judgmenta
and thereby enablea the atudent to
realise clearly what the real questions are conoerning the ends of sooial policy and the purposes of sooial
Inatltutlona.
' "Three different questions always come up In connection
with sooial Institutions," Professor
Irving said. "These are (1) What
ends do they In faot serve? (3)
What ends are they Intended to
serve? (8) What ends ought they
to serve? These questions are always Important when we dlsouss
aoclal change."
CONTEMPTIBLE LAZINESS
The interest of the student body of this glorious university
in affairs of the Cumpus .State provides a permanent subject for
criticism from those in authority.
The Alma Mater meeting, held in the Auditorium last Tuesday at noon, wns but a typical illustration of that extraordinary
apathy which characterizes this university. There were possibly
four hundred students present at tho meeting, with a student body
of some 2,200!
At the Pep meeting held nt noon on Thursday in the Auditorium, there was not even standing room. Over a thousand students jammed the entire building in an effort to hear an orchestra
play pieces of music which are played-—perhaps better—on the
radio every night.
The spirit which drives students to Pep meetings is, of course,
most commendable. The spirit which inspires attendance at a Pep
meeting and simultaneously absence at a regular semi-annual
meeting of the Alma Mater Society is deplorable.
A handful of students work hard for the benefit of the student
body on the campus.    They are the members of Students' Council.
The arrangements for the Brock Student Union Building are

Freshman: "You look as though

Co-ed:  "Oh, thanks!"
Freshman: "But you shouldn't

ON THE PHONE
"You're wanted on the 'phone"
we put down our pen and went  to
the undlsoriminating Inatrument.
"Hello," we anawered In our moat
dulcet tonea . . ,
"Hello," echoed the receiver.
No more, no less did the party on
the other end of the line utter. How
many tlmea thla haa happened!
It aeema to be an obaeaalon with
aome people to behave ln auoh an
Idiotic faahlon over the 'phone. Another moat annoying type, la the person who aaka, "Do you know who
thla la apeaking?" And It ia usually
aomeone who haan't a thing to say
beyond the horrible expression,
"What do you know, that's new?"
And talking about 'phones reminds
us of Virginia Galloway. Virginia
'phoned the Radio Society and asked
for Victor Freeman, director of campus broadcasts,
A very English voloe anawered
and aaid that Victor waan't in the
radio studio. Not giving up, Virginia
asked for another member of the
radio aociety.
The very English voice became
quite indignant at being questioned
ao peraiatently and ejaculated, "I
tell you, NOBODY ia here."

CAMPUS CAVALIERS
When a boy complains about the
lack of manners of males as a whole,
then something must be done about
It. One of the upper-classmen states
that he wlahea other atudenta (maa-
cullne) would atand up ln loaded
busses and atreet cara and let the
girls have their places. Naturally
we were Interested.
Aa far aa the women of the Unlveralty are concerned, they are willing to atand up In atreet cara, etc.,
with the best of them. They understand that the cavalier age haa paaaed, by Juat obaervlng the freahman
class.
That is not the point. On street
cars, men and women from the business world are present. They -watch
the students and form their opinions
of them from these encounters. It
may be the only time they can ob-
aerve Unlveralty students In the
making. They are our future employers, perhaps—If they are not
prejudiced   by   our   gaucheriea.
So boys—It's  up to you.

TUUM EST . .  .
The flrst Alma Mater meeting of
the year took place Tuesday noon tn
the Auditorium. Thla will be a aur-
prlae for many people. If It isn't,
they should be ashamed of themselves.
There is atudent government on
the campua. Every year elections
take plaoe, and membera are represented to form the ruling nucleus
Every action of theirs is aubject to
the   approval   of   the   atudent   body.
"How about a nlghl cap?'
"Make mine a Sweef Cap."

That Is the Ideal.
So,. after certain Intervals of time
the Council presents its finding and
plana to the atudenta of the Unlveralty, In other worda to the Alma
Mater Sooiety for their approval,
dlaapproval, or to be dlaoussed and
improved upon tf poaaible.
Nothing la done In an underhand
faahlon. Everything ta preaented to
the students.
And what happens? For those who
weren't at the meeting we'll tell you.
The Auditorium waa less than half
filled. Find out the seating oapaclty
of the Auditorium and make your
own deductions.
If this Is the attitude of the students, why don't you tell the people
you elect? Why don't you tell them
to save tbelr time and energy and
make up your  mind  for you?
In fact why don't you declare a
state of Council government on the
Campua. You haven't time for atudent government, you can't apend
one noon hour discussing plans
which affect you.
In conclusion, if you are ao miserably dialntereated, why not juat
aboliah atudent government? But of
eourae, we forgot—you can't be bothered to come to an Alma Mater
meeting—for all you know, atudent
government may be abollahed right
now!

largely in the hands of the Council. If the students imagine thnt
any Council or committee will continue to pour their energies into
work affecting the students, when the students apparently are
totally indifferent to any such efforts, they are mistaken.
Council possesses no 'martyr' complex. But they might, ond
rightly, behave as if they did possess one. They should say that
since the students do not care what happens on the campus, the
Council need not care how anything is run on the campus.
Inefficiency would be a habit on the campus, and student
aiVairs would suffer. The students might then be annoyed, and
might demand an explanation from their elected Councillors.
The student body would deserve then and deserves now the
scorn of Students' Council.

Three
SCIENCEMEN SING THE
SAME SONGS AS THEY
ALWAYS DID
Dr. Henry Cecil Ounnlng, profeaaor of geology, returns to U.B.C.
from which he graduated in 1028,
finding the University and its customs unchanged. "Even the Solenoe
songs are the same," he says.
Dr. Ounnlng was born in Belfast,
Ireland, and "The faot that I'm of
Irish extraction aooounts for my
violent temper," he admitted.
He attended thla University and
graduated In geology and engineering In 1928. After a year spent In
practical work In British Columbia
mines he went to the Maasaohuaetta
Inatltute of Technology, where he
obtained hla Master's and Doetor's
degrees In Eoonomlo Geology. In
Massachusetts he taught full time
for a year.
In 1928 Dr. Ounnlng took a position as a geologist on the staff of
the Geological Survey of Canada and
worked there until 1SS0 on the
metal-mining regions of B.C., Quebec and the Eastern Arctic.
At U.B.C. his subjsots will be petrology, mineral deposits, and field
work.
Aa a student, Dr. Ounnlng played
English Rugby for Varsity and he
will be doing some coaohlng tn his
free time. "I hope to assist ths
Rugby Team as much as I oan," ha
aald.

WORKOUTS NOW
IN FULL SWING
With regular practices set to commence next week, the Job of weeding
out a team from the twenty odd
players who are turning out for bas-
ketbaU haa already begun.
The season which opens October 28
will And a five-team lnter-clty circuit composed of Varsity, Stacy's,
Westerns, Adanaos, and last year's
Monro team (with a new name),
fighting for the right to meet Victoria for the privilege of representing
BC. in the Dominion finals.
Varsity this year, ahould have a
team with lots of height which will
no doubt prove to be a very definite
advantage, and the number ot players turning out will create a great
skirmish for places.
LIVINGSTONE  OUT?
The loss of several of last year's
star performers and the probability
that lanky Don Livingston may not
play this year, will, it is hoped, be
offset by the return to the team of
Pat Flynn after a one year absence,
and the appearance of a goodly number of new players, many of high
school fame.

his support to the remainder of last

Lack Of Funds

To Prairies
Prairie Teams to
Play at Home
The Intercollegiate football triangle went all awry again on Wednesday when officials from Bdmonton stated that the University of
Alberta would be unable to flnanco
the proposed trip by the Varsity
Thunderbirds to the prairie centre.
WIRED NEWS
Maury Van VUet and the Men's
Athletlo Directorate who havo been
working for weeks on a definite settlement of the Hardy Oup playdowns
reoeived the following telegram from
the University of Alberta:
"Professor Hardy advises Alberta
eounell cannot finance two games
at  Alberta  and   recommends  cancellation of B.C. series. Alberta suggests playing of two games at Saskatchewan   Ootober   7   and  9,   and
two  home  gamea  Ootober  IS and
SI, winners free for games at ooast
If expenses guaranteed."
Anxious   to   complete   negotiations
and get the series under way immediately,  Van  Vllet,  with  the  sanction
fo    the   Directorate,   wired   Alberta
that    UJB.O.    would   guarantee   the
winning prairie  team  $800  or sixty
per oent. of the gate receipts.
SET DATES
The wire fJ|ao stipulated that dates
for the Ooast games must be set Immediately, and that B.C. would prefer
them to be on October 20 and 38.
This meatus that Saskatchewan and
Alberta will play a series of four
games, on a home and home basis,
the winners to be chosen by some
agreeable tabulation.
The winning team then Journeys
to the Coaat to meet Varaity Thunderbirda,    present    holders    of    the
Hardy Trophy, In a two-game series,  If poaaible  to  be held  In conjunction with Homecoming celebrations on the Campus.
No word has been heard as we go
to press as to the reaction of the Alberta    and    Saskatchewan    Athletic
Boards to the latest proposal but Van
Vliet expects an answer by today.

Ruggermen Open Season At Oval
While Gridders And Soccermen
Play Twice Over ^Week-End
VICTORIA ON SATURDAY
ANO KAYCEES MONDAY
IS GRID SCHEDULE
With one game under their belt,
and that a viotory over North Shore
Llona 10-8, the Varsity Thunderbirda
are busy propping for tholr two big
week-end clashes, when they will
complete a circuit of the League and
test of their 1939 grid machine.
Victoria Revellers on Saturday and
Knights of Columbus on Thanksgiving Day, Monday, is a very tough
schedule for any football team and
the Collegians are quite aware of it
as they go through practice paces
toughening up for the tilts.
BOE LEAVES
Biggest loss to the Thunderbirds
came last Wednesday when Barney
Boe announced that he was forsaking the sport to concentrate on studies.
Big things had been expected from
Barney this year, and his performance against the Lions had shown
him to be a very promising backfleld
star. Now, however, he must forego
the pleasure of football for his postgraduate struggles.
To bolster up the backfleld and
plug the gap at right half, Maury
Van Vllet has been turning the
pressure on Tommy Williams who
scintillated in the baokfleld laat
season, but who seems rather dubious about giving up hla motorman'a
Job to oome baek to Varaity.
Williams was poking his nose
around practice again, though, on
Wednesday, and lt ls hoped that he
will soon be persuaded to return. It
ls doubtful, however, whether he will
see much action in the two week-end
tilts.
HARMER  'HOT'
Biggest And on the Student squad
ls "Jeem" Harmer, converted English
Rugby star, who has shown a wealth
of talent at the blocking half position. In last Saturday's, encounter,
Harmer intercepted two North Shore
passes and recovered a Lion fumble.
He's worth his weight ln gold, too,
defensively, breaking up countless
North Shore plays that seemed destined for long gains, and handling
the placement kicks.
Surprise packet, ln the backfleld
was the plunging of Milt Angus who
plowed through the Lion line for
plenty of yardage, although Oraham
Finlay handled the biggest assignment of ball carrying.
LINE TOUOH
In the line, the Varsity "Maglnot
fortress", Line Coach Neil Watson
has done a wonderful Job ln amassing one of the toughest front walls
ever to face Big Four competition.
Many of last year's stars are back
Including Freddie Smith at guard,
Lee Straight in the centre spot, Hank
Stradlottl and Angy Proven zano
pairing up at tackle slots, and "Sixty
Minute" Pearson at, right  end.
Pearson also handles the kicking
chores for Varsity and proved invaluable ln the opening game against
North Shore with his booming punts,
kicking Varsity out ot danger.
OTHER   ANOLE
While Victoria Revellers were somewhat trounced ln their first encounter ln the Big Four League they still
rate as a potent force and will not
be a soft touch.
I     GUARDS LINE     j
Above Is pictured Freddy Smith,
hard-hitting Varsity stalwart who
holds down a guard position on Van
Vliet's Thunderbird squad. A standout In the line last year, Freddy Is
well on his way to another great season, blocking the klok that paved the
way to Varsity's big win over North
Shore last week.

this year and many tlmea aaid he
would play English Rugby and Soccer but thla ls hla flrat definite movement one way or the other.
Another recruit to the aoccer field

ROWING CLUB FACE
REVAMPED CAREYMEN
IN SEASON OPENER
Brookton Point will be the scene
of the opening game thla Saturday
a hen the latest edition of the Oampus Thunderbirds tangle with an
equally renovated Rowing Olub fifteen. The Blue and Oold squad will
be very much lacking In their stars
ot the past, but they still have the
old college spirit and condition necessary for this gruelling sport.
Coach A. B. Carey has been working his charges hard for the past
three weeks and the players have
rounded Into top form. The question
of a starting lineup ls still Indefinite
but the First Fifteen will certainly
Include last year's mainstays Tommy
Robson and Ian Richards, both hailing from across the inlet.
U.B.C. STARS
Ian Richards was one of the standouts with the U.B.C. scrumsters last
year and has graduated to the major
sport. Speedster Bert Hosklns will
also move up to the big team this
year. Bert was a mighty handy fullback last year and It Is quite possible
he may hold down that position with
the Varsity team.
The three quarter line will be anything but weak;  Ted MoPhee has
returned to the fold and Is Invaluable at Ave elghtha. Evann Davlea,
Craig McPhee, Sandy Lang are the
remaining 'old-timers,'
Manager Chuck Long seems deeply
impressed  with  the hustling,  though
comparatively   green   squad,   and    Is
enthusiastic  over  Allan  Wallace  and
Freddie Billings, both of whom have
graduated from the U.B.C. team and
will flash for the Seniors this season.
HIGH SCHOOL STARS
Two recruits fresh from High
School triumphs will be used to bolster the squad. Up from Lord Byng
comes Carrol Chapman, rated as the
best kicker In the League last year.
Chapman will be handed the kicking
assignment for the seniors.
Over from Victoria College comes
Jim Malnguy, who starred in Island
competition last year, and should
prove a valuable asset to the 'Birds.
Although many of, last year's stars
have gone from the roster enough of
the old-timers have been left for
Coach Carey to build a youthful team
that will threaten the League.
LINE-UPS
Chosen, then, for the first encounter tomorrow against the Rowers are: Evann Davies, Jim Malnguy, Allan Wallace, Tommy Robson,
Doug Wilson, Craig MoPhee, and
Mack Buck who have copped scrum
positions.
Sandy Lang will be operating from
his old scrum-half position, Oerry
Wood up from the Frosh at five-
eighths, Ian Richards, Lyman-Day-
Smlth, and Carrol Chapman In the
three line, and Bert Hoskins at fullback. —FRITH.
INTRAMURALS
The intra-mural program was officially ushered Into the curriculum on
Wednesday when the Aggies fell before the Anglicans tn ths flrst volleyball tourney.
Today at noon the Sciencemen 40
will play the Artsmen 41 on the flrst
court and the Sciencemen 41 will
tussle with the Artsmen 42 on the
other court.
