Varsity's Intermediate Rugby squad
met and conquered the league-leading
Bowing Club, favored to win the City
Championship, In a fiercely fought
game last Saturday, by a score of
9 to 3. In Inflicting on the Rowers
their first defeat of the season, Varsity avenged its only loss, suffered
last October, and is now ln sight of
the Mainland Championship and a
trip to Victoria. Should the U. B. C.
team win Ils two remaining Kami's
against X-King George and the Frosh,
lt will win the second half of the
league and will play off with Rowing
Club, winner of the flrst half, for the
right to meet Victoria for the Provincial title.
Stepping on to the Held minus three
of their best players, Gaul, Chappelle
and Nixon, the Intermediates were
thought to have little chance against
the heavy Rowers. The Club started
With a rush and fer the flrst five
minutes had things their own way.
Varsity fought desperately and prevented a score. Gradually the students asserted themselves until half
way through the period, a fine three-
quarter run gave Cotterell a clear
field with only tbe fullback to beat.
The Varsity winger sprinted forty
yards, eluded the fullback and gave
hla side Its first points. The try was
not converted. For the rest ot the
period Varsity had slightly the better
of the play.
After half Hi*-:, the Clubbers put
all their efforts Into a desperate attack. Following some good forward
play, one of their men picked the ball
from a loose scrum and fell across the
line, making the score three all. Varsity pressed hard from the kick-off.
Cokie Shields, playing fullback, used
his kicking power to great advantage
aad Anally, staging a thirty yard run,
passed to the threes who put Bill
Brown over for another try. The Rowers tried hard to equalise and had bad
ruck when Crehan missed a penalty
goal from Varsity's ten yard line, but
apart from that they had little chance
to score. The last U. B, C. acore came
three minutes before the final whistle,
when Pllkington seized the ball In a
line-out and plunged across the line.
The final score stood S-8.

Thursday, February 28, the Debating Union met Vancouver College In
debate. The Union team waa composed of Kenneth Logan and Frank
McKcnsle, while the College was represented by Jack Sergeant and Bruce
Anderson. Owing to an unfortunate
misunderstanding, the two teams had
prepared different subjects. However,
the Varsity team undertook to debate
the College subject: "Resolved that
federal control should be paramount
in the conservation of national resources." The affirmative was upheld
by the College, the negative by the
The chair was occupied by Mr. Paul
Murphy, President of the Debating
Union and ex-student of Vancouver
College. In his remarks Mr. Murphy
drew attention to the fact that such
debates tend to build up a better understanding between the two Institutions.
Mr. Anderson opeued the debate,
carefully building up a strong foundation for the affirmative case. Mr. McKenzie then opened the case for the
negative, attacking the arguments of
his opponents In a carefully reasoned
and convincing style. Mr, Sergeant,
speaking ln a very vigorous manner,
completed the work which his colleague had begun. The process of
destruction was continued by the
nimble wit and forceful speech of Mr.
Logan. The decision of the Judges
was awarded In favour of the affirmative.

Rollo* s Oats Sown
In Many Fields
in presenting "Rollo's Wild Oat" as
the 1929 Spring Play, the Players'
Ciub has ohosen a production that has
met with great success elsewhere,
mostly on Utile Theatre companies.
Little Theatre goers In Winnipeg
are still clamouring (or a reproduction of Glare Hummer's famous comedy "Rollo's Wild Oat," staged by that
theatre a few seasons ago, In Berkeley. California, It achieved great sue*
cose with either little or no stage
settings, without the help ojt whioh
devices, few producers would dare to
attempt to produce a play. Yet the
Berkeley students realised the many
Inherent possibilities in this delight*
tut composition and played it on a
stagf utterly devoid of scenery, to
enthusiastic audiences. And In New
York, that fascinating little theatre,
once the Punch and Judy and now
the Charles Hopkins, that invariably
filled its iivmost capacity, ran "Rollo's Wild oat" tor more than two
hundred nights.
"Oood Gracious Annabella," "A
Successful Calamity" and "Be Calm
Camilla," recent productions of tbe
same author, have met with equal
popularity on this continent and elsewhere. At present, "Oood Gracious
Annabella" is amusing Australia and
if wa oan believe tbe glowing reports
of the success of this comedy, it Will
continue to do so for some time.
It Is interesting to note that Clare
Hummer's son-in-law Roland Young,
who is now taking tbe part of the
Queen's Husband in S. R. Sherwood's
latest success of that name, was the
original Rollo ln the New York performances. The part of Hewston, one
of the most delightful figures in the
play, was originally taken by Ivan
Simpson, an actor well known to Vancouver audiences in virtue ef the fact
that he took one ot the main leads
of, the supporting cast with Oeorge
Arllss in "Old Bnglish." Those who
witnessed that sparkling revival ot
"The Rivals" with Mrs. Fiske will
doubtless remember Lotus Robb, the
flrst Goldle of "Rollo's Wild Oat"
Nor is the reason for the fame of
this brilliant comedy tar to seek. It
Is primarily one of the most actable
dramas; the Players' Club has ever
handled. The situations are not only conducive to oven ribald mirth
at times, but contain some moments
of real dramatic Intensity. Do not,
however, suppose that "Rollo's Wild
Oat" ls a thr-1-1-1-lng detective stunt,
or a "carbon copy of a big moment"
taken from the latest newspaper
sensation. It Is merely the story of
what did happen when Rollo, the
grandson of an air-brake millionaire,
was able to Indulge in his favorite
dream—playing Hamlet. The world
1b full of day-dreainera but nono so
fortunate as Rollo. As soon as he
meets his future Ophelia, however,
his Wild Oat changes its form and
—but let's not anticipate. The tremendous novelty of at least two
scenes heightens the interest greatly. One of these scenes presents an
actor's dressing room, and to those
who have never had the privilege of
going 'back-atage,' will have a glimpse,
no doubt, of all those mysterious rituals that must happen there. The
mere mention, of the other scene
might stimulate any susceptible
curiosity to too great a pitch so lt
shall not be divulged here.
Briefly the story Is as follows:
Rollo Webster has persuaded himself that he ls one of the most adequate Hamlets of the decade, and
manages by aid cf a present of a
cheque from his grandfather Horatio
Webster, to Indulge this whim. He

Dr. Allan Harris, who won fame aa
co-discoverer of element 61, gave his
opinion of fraternities. They are of
real value to a University even though
at times they prdve a detriment. The
value of fraternities lies in the fact
that twenty or thirty close friends of
the same Ideals and interests, are of
more benefit to a student than casual,
miscellaneous friends acquired In
ordinary college life.
The probation Of fraternities, said
Dr. Harris, should be continued for
tt protects the University from too
numerous or undesirable oreanis*
tlons. If every little group who wish*
ed to be known as "Frat-men" were allowed to form a fraternity and aend
a representative to the Ipter-frateru-
ity Council, the Counoil could be controlled by any ambitious group on (be
campus and the primary purpose of
service to the University would be
loot sight of. The year's probation
does a new fraternity no harm but
rather gives It a sense of the serious
obligations of a fraternity to Its University.
The Student's Council should have
final power over fraternities and the
Inter-fraternity Counoil continue to
govern actively, declared Dr. Harris,
for the personnel of the Council enables It to understand fraternity problems.
Says Dangtr lias In Too Much Power
Rush Snaneman, a non-fraternity
man, declared that fraternities, If controlled wisely, are beneficial. Their
chief danger lies In the fact that they
may secure too much power and control the University.
Probation of a new fraternity Is
unnecessary, declared Shanenuui, and
It tends toward discriminations.
Fraternities should bo governed by
the Inter-fraternlty Council, said
Shanenian, with final power ln the
hands of the Students' Council.
Says Onus Lies on Individual
" It is with some diffldonce that I
have consented to write briefly on the
subject of fraternities. It ls easy to
be dogmatic on this as on mSny other
subjects, and it is perhaps just as unwise. Fraternities are a continent-
wide institution so far as our Universities are concerned. They arose
to meet) a certain need, they have
continued and grown in number because they have ministered more or
less successfully to that need.
Since the Fraternity movement
spread to us from the United States
we should be able t> derive some light
upon the problem by* tracing their
rise and operation in that country.
Some universities there seem to have
found them on the whole a source ot

Sophomores Plan to Collect
Material of B. C. History
Pasr.ed by a large majority, the
plan of Arts 'HI for a collection of the
history of British Columbia will be
carried  forward  as soon  as possible.
Some time ago, lt was suggested by
Dr. W. Sage, Honorary President of
'31 that as a graduating gift, the clasa
collect Information and articles regarding the history of B. C. This waa
to be tho nucleus of a collection that
could be built up in years to come, a
collection that the members of '81
could look back on with a feeling of
The plan that has been suggested
ls one that will require considerable
tlm.e money, and co-operation, but
everyone feels that the task can be
successfully accomplished. It has
been proposed to divide B. C. into districts, different people working on different localities. Bach locality will
then be thoroughly canvassed. The
old-timers will be Interviewed and their
stories written up. Books and other
articles dealing with past history of
the district will be bought, and when
as much Information as possible bag
been collected, the whole will be united, still tn distinct districts, under
British Columbia as a whole. Aa time
goes on and information la gathered,
each district will be supplemented
until an accurate history of B. C. Is
The University authorities have
promised to give the collection a place
ln one of the buildings and to help
carry on the work of adding to the
collection after Arts 'SI graduates.
Hevsral prominent men In the city
hava; also promised to assist wtth
gifts and financial donations, so there
will be uo fear of the project falling
through. The final requirement Is
that as many members aa possible ot
'SI get behind the scheme and work
and boost for It.

Four hundred and sixty-six students of the University of
British Columbia assembled In tbe auditorium Thursday noon
to vote on the Manager system. From this number 287 voted
for the proposed Manager system and 179 voted against lt. A
caiual observer notes that probably one-third of the Students
preaent were those holding some executive position. In other
word** those students who have the most work to do in connection
Slth University activity were prominent among those who found
me to be interested in a question which vitaUy concerns the
University. The total 466 students assembled represented a
Student batyMiofW ■■•WOO.
The majority of these 1600 students were among those who
one year ago appointed Alex. Smith, Hugh Morrison and Arnold
Henderson "to investigate the internal conditions of the business
dt the A. M. 8. with a view to bringing in recommendations for
changes in policy to keep pace with the development of activities
of the student body." Why were the great majority of these
students absent Thursday?
Do they consider the Finance Committee to have failed in
Its duty? Do they consider themselves above, or below, discus-
aing questions which will affect the University? Or is the State
expending money on a crowd of collegians who are not sufficiently Interested in their Institution to participate ln its policy? If
such Is the case then the State is probably making a mistake, for
if those trained as leaders are not Interested in their University,
will they be interested in their country?
We wohder if the enthusiasm, sacrifice, and work of those
oonnectad with Fairview days, In their zeal for a better University
was really worth the cost?

"Religious experience is a very
vital subjeot and one wblcb concerns
us all," said Reverend Dr. Kerr ln
his address under tbe auspices of the
S. C. M. on Tuesday.
Dr. Kerr stressed three points especially. Tbey were; tbe universality
of religious experience, the question
as to its validity, and the realisation
ot life which it brings.
"Religious experience Is a universal
thing," he said, it ls not peculiar to
any group, age or race but belongs
to humanity as a Who'.e. Coming forward through the ages from the comparatively crude times (as regards
culture) of the Hebrews to the present day we find examples In every
age of these religious experiences.
Examples of this are found In the
experiences of Bernard ot Clalrvaux,
Martin Luther, Tolstoi and H. G.
Walls, Whenever religious experience reaches a high plane we And
tbe same high feelings pervade lt
no matter in what age or olass It
Bkeptios are wont to translate these
feelings psychologically but ln these
experiences there ls a sense ot a
presence beyond tbe power ot pres*
ent psychologists to explain. The
statement that "the facts of life suggest a mind behind things" ls open
to skepticism.
As a result. Dr. Kerr said> all proof
tor the reality ot religious experience
must rest on the tact that lt appeals
not to some speolal part of man's nature but to Ws whole nature.
The Christian religion has bister*
lcally done this. It has satisfied the
emotional needs ot thousands so that
they werfe willing to live and die tor
it. It has produced the noblest kind
ot living the twentieth century oan
Dr. Kerr mentioned Frederick Buckram as an illustration of his third
point After hla religious experience,
through bis enthusiasm in three
years be bad 1,100 men In a university in voluntary Bible classes where be
fore they could not get one. In his
method ot winning these men the
crucial thing ls the bringing of the
men under the leadership of Christ.

sets out with Hewston, his man, to
New York where he rents an apartment. His anxious sister, Lydla, and
Aunt Lane follow closely, leaving the
grandfather in the throes of worry
and gout. Rollo Is successful in obtaining a producer, Stein, and a company who are "old hands at the
Shakespeare game." So, it might be
added, is Hewston who has long since
heard of the stage fame of the present Ophelia—Ooldle MacDuff. The
second act pictures the scene of the
production on the opening night, the
stage fright of the amateurs prior to
the rising of the curtain, In excellent
contrast to the iitolld eane of the
seasoned actors. Rollo la no sooner
on the stage when a telegram arrives
to the effect that old Mr. Webster Is
dangerously HI. He leaves the stage
Immediately dragging Ooldle behind
him, and hastens to his grandfather's
side. (Imagine Mr. Stein's embarrassment).
The last act reconciles Rollo and
Ooldle with Mr. Webster who has discovered that it had been Goldle's
grandmother, Mary Mowe, with whom,
when he was a famous first-nighter,
he had been wildly in love. The other
love affair, that of Lydla and George

To Finally Decide on
We Sanders New Editor ot
Toronto "Varsity"
Wilfred Sanders, third .year Arts
Student of Trinity College Is the new
Editor-in-Chief of "The Varsity," is
the latest announcement from Toronto. P. B. Ussher, former news editor
ot "The Varsity" and the other candidate for the post received two
votes out of a possible eleven. Owing to this sudden turn of events, the
old staff of "The Varsity," Ryan's
adherents, will not return to their
former positions. This puts Sanders
to the necessity of selecting a new
staff, as the former has intimated
that it will not carry on under the
new Editor-in-Chief.
"Apparently the undergraduate
newspaper is still to be muzzled," remarked Mr. Ussher, defeated contestant for the position, in commenting on the new situation. He also
observed that appearances led him to
believe that the members of the Joint
executive were apathetic whether the
student newspaper should be capable
of expressing student opinion or not,
and to substantiate this he pointed
out that only eleven of the eighteen
members were present
Mr. R. C. Mitchell, Editor-in-Chief
pro tem takes the opposite viewpoint
ln stating editorially that the former
editors of "The Varsity" had proposed
a contract so one-sided that no sane-
minded executive would consider it
for a moment.

There are Instances where these
advantages have heen largely counteracted by undoubted evils. The attention of students has been distracted
from their studies by a multiplication
of social functions. Late hours and
irregular habits have been made more
easy for students who already were
too disposed towards these things.
The associations provided have been

Fraternities are not essentially undemocratic as some of I heir critics

No categorical answer can be given
to the question 'Are fraternities good
or bad?' Actually and In individual
cases they would seem to be sometimes the one |and sometimes the
other. The determining principle is
to be found In the fact that tho lesser loyalties of life are good It they

Thoso who attended tho Musical
Society Concert either on Friday or
Saturday night mlfrht possibly have
noticed a little pamphlet Inserted ln
tho program entitled "A Worthy
Cause" and signed by Calvin Winter.
It may seem a strange thing but thero
exist people who would prefer to hear
the Brandenburg Concertos from Bach

of that sort,

man who writes, under certain circumstances, an "Apologle for Jazz" is
versatile. Indeed, he ls also happy,
because, as well aa appreciating the
gorgeous "barbershop" harmonies ot
"Oh, Just One Morel" he can sit
back and listen with Just as much relief to the "Unfinished."

nothing, knows nothing nor in fact,

One cannot help sympathising with
Mr. Calvin Winter who does, and has
done, a great deal of good for Vancouver musically. But whether or
not we sympathise, nothing wtll alter
the fact that perhaps two out of
every ten both In the city and at
'Varsity (which Is worse!) prefers
