mtrable was the combat between the
prince and the Minotaur, and the
expediency with' wKieh tie fair

the rooters sections among the human sacrifices, the sinewy grace of

ln "Fast and Loose" the Players

cldedly novel.  Given a girl and boy
Sid a bench in a moonlit garden,

one would expect from the materials
on hand, by a laconic, and for the

enough to satisfy even a movie devotee.

a more serious note with an im

.the only racoon, Mated the Canon,
pit such a strtlting statement could
[|| made la all eortooAoae by a oar
Is to bis found hi the teaching which that "Carpenter" left be-
hind bin> To understand hla reason
:$i rafting tite statement, we must
therefore try to discover what Chris-
tianity is.
In the first place,' it may be con-
dared/as an ethical codV-but an
ethical code that Is echoed alwaya
In the human heart because it la
more consistently complete than any
Other moral code.
^Secondly, Ctoietiaulty Isi a philosophy, bring the most' comprehensive
view of life yet attained; but more
than thte, it Is a program of social
reform, teaching Us how to serve
our fellow men.
"As graduates of bur University,
you have been given a wonderful
opportunity to succeed in life, and
therefore much is expected of you,"
said Canon Sovereign. "You are the
future leaders in British Columbia,
in Canada, or In the World, and as
such cannot do better than try to
admire Christ and allow His joy of
service to enter your minds, for it
is through the true Christian spirit
of service that your powers are best
unfolded."
In conclusion the Canon reminded
his congregation of the text: "I am
the Light of the World." As Christians, we still believe tiiese words
because their Author backed them
up by service to His fellow men.
Following the sermon the choir
sang Bach's anthem, "Send Out Thy
Light and Truth," and the service
ended with a prayer for the University and all its members.
W. U. EXECUTIVE
NEEDS CLOTHES
Clothes, more clothes, and still
more clothes is the battle cry of
the Women's Undergraduate executive in their drive for discarded
clothing to be distributed among the
poor of Vancouver.
"Clothing is' being received in the
Gymnasium till Wednesday, November 18. Many students have already
responded to the call, but many
more must respond if the drive is
to be a success," stated Dorothy
Myers when questioned about the
success of the effort.
The clothing will be allotted for
distribution by the Province Santa
Claus fund, The Church of the Open
Door and the Central City Mission.
Raiment of all kinds is needed;
socks, underwear, old jackets, old
pants, caps, anything that will bo
of use to those who haven't got
them.
"Come on, you students! Get hot,
and throw off those clothes you
don't really need, and bring them
out to the Gym tomorrow," is the
pleading note sounded by Ihe W. U
Executive  in  this laudable  effort.
NOTICE
No student who has not deposited one dollar with the
Business Manager by Monday,
November 21 will have the opportunity to obtain a Totem.
The number of Totems will be
strictly limited to those who
have made deposits.

BILL THORNBER
INJURED IN
PLANE CRASH
Friends of Bill Thornber, Science
graduate of '30 will regret to hear
of his serious Injury as the result
of an air crash near Camp Borden,
Ontario, last week.
While flying with a passenger at'
an altitude of fifteen hundred.feet,
the engine of the plane fell out.   In
jan endeavour to save his plane, the
• pilot decided not to take to hla parachute.   The extreme lightness how-
I ever prevented   a   perfect   landing
and a crash resulted. The passenger
escaped unharmed, but Bill Buffered
serious spinal Injury.   Latest reports
state that he is doing ai Well as can |
be. expected.   It is understood, how-
t-ver that he may be in a cast for
some time.
For three years, Bill spent his
summer vacation at the Royal Air
Force school at Camp Borden, training tor his pilot's certificate. Since
his graduation last spring he has
spent all his time at the school as
a licensed pilot. His home Is in
Summerland, B. C.

Cor and Mrs. ti. T. Logan, and Dean
M L. Bollert.
The specious ballroom, with its aril tistio parmellng and gaily coloured
lights, formed aa ideal sotting far
the affair. The Bail was strictly
formal, and hence tuxes, ankle-
dresses, and white gloves #ere
everywhere In evidence. Borne frVe

Crowds Flock
To Tea Dance
After Rugby Game
"And there will be a tea dance
right after this game in Peter Pan
Ballroom," announced Earl Vance at
half-time of the Intercollegiate game
on Saturday. Game over, score 4-3,
in favor of Varsity, crowds flocked
to the Big Block Club Tea Dance
given in honour of the two contesting teams. University of B. C. team
arrived first, coming in two or three
at a time and were greeted with
congratulations from students all
over the hall. Later Doc. Burke
showed up and then Joe Price. Doc.
was spotted first and carried in a
triumphant procession around the
room and finally deposited on the
platform. He told us of the splendid
fighting spirit of the teams, of the
clean game that had been played,
and of the splendid sportsmanship of
the Manitoba team. Everyone
cheered as Ken Stewart led the skyrockets for the two coaches and the
opposing college representatives.
Many grads were on hand and saw
for themselves that the "Spirit of
U. B. C." was a living embodiment
of the one known in Fairview days,
end many acquaintances were renewed.

Advertiser's Pep Meeting Friday Noon
orchestra swung into the strains of
Varsity's new song.
The appearance of Dr. Shrum on
the platform waa enthusiastically
greeted. He remarked that he had
been asked why Varsity did not
support their athletic teams, said
that the Rugby team was out to
show their metal, and asked for liberal side-line support from the student body.
A skit. was next on the program,
in which Incidents from the private
life of Casanova were presented.
"Casanova" was portrayed by Freddy Bolton who revealed unsuspected
dramatic talent, and riveted attention from start to finish. Hal
Straight, in his role of impersonation, was something leas than magnificent, while Art Murdock, whose
tragic death wrung the hearts of the
audience, (and even convulsed some
of them), took the part of Captain
of the Guard and Man of the House.
The Greek chorus was represented
by certain prominent members of
the Rugby team, who appeared rather sketchily attired, and gave graceful  Interpretations  of  the   Dance.
Following this presentation, Doc.
Burke and Joe Price expressed their
confidence in the U. B. C. boys, and
asked the students to turn out and
support, their team.
PLAYERS'CLUB
MUCTJiE DAILY
FOR XMAS FLAYS
With one dress rehearsal over and
another one due to-night the Players' Club will be in a position to
present a polished performance to
first-nighters on Thursday next.
No play written by a student will
be produced this year, because none
of sufficient merit were offered for
consideration. Ordinarily there are
several worthy plays by student
authors, written during Professor
Wood's course in Play Writing. But
this course has been cut out in the
interests of economy! This step is
regretted by many students and
those faculty members possessing
insight, for even though no great
plays are necessarily produced
through such a course, nevertheless
it creates Intelligent critics.
However, four plays of exception^
merit,  both in variety  and   content,
have been chosen for  production.
There will be hilarious comedy and
gripping tragedy.
Several actors and actresses of fine
talent have been discovered among
the new members and those attending the plays are assured of a very
good  entertainment.
The Caf. will be open until 6 p.m.
to accomodate those wishing to stay
out for the evening. Students may
obtain  tickets from  the   auditorium
box office on Tuesday and Wednes
day noon.
'Ubyssey'
Standard
Criticized
Varying  Opinions  ExprtfMd
By Faculty «nd Student*
On All Secttoh*
faculty and students expressed
their opinions of this years "Ubys-
seys" very freely in interviews
granted to the press in the last few
daya. Ivory section of the paper
came under fire, with the Surprising result that, "bouquets and brickbats" were distributed with ah al*
meet impartial bind,
Professor F. a C Wood holds that
"the 'Ubyssey' is invaluable to Cnl-
varsity 111*. U. B. C, has now ao
many Interests, that without the P*-
Qer a large number of us would Mf
know what Wa* going on." Wh*»
asked for destructive criticism, h*
added that in his opinion, "The In*
creese to else Is not justified. There
in a very ob"ious effort made 0
"pad" columns to fill this »o*ce and
consequently many' of the "write-
upi" are prosy rather than brighV
My personal opinion cf the Mtt*fc
Page Is that ii la an unhappy re<r
flection of the mental to
a large portion of the student
Much of It ti strained, and
level ot eomic strips in th*
paper. Yet to spite ot Its •hortcflm-
ings one look* forward to the Ubyai
soy with pleasant anticlpatiee. *§4
I think very few of Its reedert appreciate the very real effort whlcrt
Ides Into bringing out any on* issue."
Dr. Shrum expressed his optnlflik
"The Editorials are good thi* y**>r
and the general attitude to th* Ad*
ministration and Council Is better—
the "Vbyssey" seem* more Wtttte#
to "dig in and help." At th* same
time 1 think the Editor should be
to a position to censor ov<
including Grad-Editorlak." to
Iclsrn Or. Shrum says, "1 doot
i *hi,
J»'
"•Mis' '.IMislo^wMMtiJ ";w^s*^pj|i^^W*^i^te
like tha town papers, and shouldn^t
be allowed even there. You might
at least say "President Klinck.''
This is the first year this has been
done."
Student opinion varied considerably. Jack Thomson, President
M.U.S. says "I like the Muck Page,
it suits my type of humour; The
Sports get sufficient publicity — in
the case of some of the minor games
when the complete team doesn't
turn out—more than they deservel
The notices before the big games
are too boastful."
Art Murdoch, Canadian Rugby
star, considers the personnel of the
Publications Board occupies too
much of the Muck Page. "The
Bridge Problems and Louis 14 are
good—we need more like them! The
Sport Page is good, and the games
well reported."
Art Mercer, English Rugby star,
refutes this: "Don't agree with Murdoch about the Sports Page. The
reporters understand the game, but
their write-ups aren't peppy enough
-they lack sports lingo!"
The Chineses students think "Ptoe
and Pen" is by far the best thing
in the "Ubyssey." Otherwise they
consider it partly good and partly
very bad. With the exception of
the "Bridge Problems" they see
nothing amusing in the Muck Page.
The Muck Page, best read section
of the paper, was the   subject   of
much controversy.   Esme Thompson

It Won't Be Long Now
With the Christmas Plays at the end of this
week social functions for the term will finish
and students will be able to give their undivided attention to curricula work. Freshmen and
probably gome others will be experiencing
vague migglvlngg as to whether they have divided their time wisely between work and executive or recreational pursuits. Very few will
deny that social activities form an essential
part of college life; nevertheless there is undoubtedly a nappy medium beyond which the
seeker after pleasure or executive experience
should not go. Just where the dividing Une
lies is difficult to determine and only experi-
ence, often costly experience, can tell. It is
worth realising that it is not only the time
■which a student spends on campu* activities
which detract* from hit studies. Any person
holding a B office and many who occupy C
positions are bound to give a great deal of
thought to their duties in this connection and
It is the exceptional student who can concentrate so thoroughly that he can banish such
thoughts from his mind at will; and apply himself solely to the study of an economics text or
a history treatise.
There are still three clear weeks left before examination* begin and it is safe to state
that the majority ol students, providing that
they have not missed any large proportion of
their lectures, are quite capable of repairing
any damage which their work may have suffered as a result of extra-curricula activities.
Now is the time to exercise all possible concentration ability and banish idea*, other than
. tho*e connected with courses, entirely from

Congratulations
A word of congratulation can well be extended to those in charge of arrangements for
the Homecoming weekend. Except for the
seating of graduates for the Theatre Night,
which was apparently due to the failure of the
Big Block Club to turn up, the whole affair
was moSt harmoniously run.
the actual skits of the Theatre Night were
©fa higher standard of production than has
been the case for several years. This is probably the result of the elimination previous
to the actual performance, and if so, the practice should be carried on in future years. "Fewer and better skits" would be a worthy slogan
lor any person who is thinking of running for
Junior Member next spring.
The Ubyssey joins with the rest of the students in offering their thanks for the efficient
manner in which this year's Junior Member
has handled the affair after the serious disadvantage of his late election.
The Two Unit Delusion
There is a polite fiction in existence at this
University which for years has systematically
encouraged and then depressed all students
naive enough to credit it.
The form taken by this misrepresentation
is that of a number of studies offered in the
Calendar as two unit courses, which when
entered upon by ambitious people anxious for
variety in an all too short sojourn at college,
disclose themselves to be worth at least three
units of credit, and often four.
The effect on the student is likely to be
serious, for if he registers, as many have done,
for two or even more two unit courses in
place of the customary three unit ones, he will
face the task of accomplishing enough work in
each of these courses to merit, very often, twice
the credits he will receive. The outcome is
obvious. Finding it actually impossible to keep
up a fair standard in all his studies, the bewildered student has either to devote himself to
a few or to see his work on the whole deteriorate. He may just manage a pass in everything, but he has little chance to accomplish
what he set out to do, and completes his academic year with a distinct sense of dissatisfaction with his progress.
Such a system falls little short of defeating
the very aims of the University. Instead of
providing the necessary guidance to a student
sincerely interested in his work, it demands so
much more knowledge, for examination purposes, than is compatible with the credit
awarded, that the student is swamped with
essay and reading assignments, and left to sink
or swim as best he may.

These are typical slogans of the "talkie" advertisements that are hurled at us every day.
How long will this hectic drivel continue to be
ground out? It gets worse and worse, but
sooner or later It may cease to be effective
even on moron*. The vast majority of picture*
thus heralded are not worth seeing. They are
utter rot, propagating wrong attitudes and
false impressions, exacting rich tribute for unscrupulous film czars from the gullible public.
According to the Literary Supplement, the
legitimate stage is going to make an excellent'
come-back in Vancouver this winter, to the
pleasure and relief of increasing numbers who
are "fed up" with "talkie" tripe. It is significant that the British Guild Players have become a successfully established institution In
this city. There is a considerable public ready
to welcome the stage companies that will visit
us in the next few months, and students would
be well advised to hoard their nickels for the
worth-while treats that are in store.
* *   *
A recent United Press report from State
College, Pa., informed us that students there
are more serious now than'a few years ago,
that they are making better marks
Studying and taking a greater interest In
In Vogue world problems, and that hazing no
longer exists.
All this is in line with general tendencies.
Tlie greater academic industry at Penn State
is probably due to the same cause that, I think,
hag produced a similar phenomenon here—
namely, the recent economic depression..
Everyone has been more serious, and students,
most of them being even less opulent than
usual, are appreciating university life to a
greater degree because they have to make a
greater sacrifice for it. Moreover, a good
standing means a better chance of securing a
position; and many feel a moral obligation to
do well because they have had to accept unwonted help from relatives and friends.
This term studying is decidedly in vogue.
One student, who last year took a prominent
role in "The Pirates of Penzance," is not taking
part in the Musical Society's production this
year. "After all, we come here to study," he
said to me or words to that effect. Similar
opinions are heard on every hand, and throngs
besiege "The Waiting Wall" in the library.
This attitude, commendable though it is, has
caused worry to the Ubyssey staff, some members of which have resigned or drifted away.
We who are left have an added grievance
against the depression—though, as has been
said, this vogue for studying is commendable—
oh, very commendable indeed.

"How do you think the profs would accept
a petition from the students that the whole
university system be renovated?" This question was put to me in the caf.
The Tutorial the other day, and my some-
System what non-committal reply was:
"Oh, I'm sure they'd take it in
good part."
Upon being asked what changes he had in
mind, this reformer suggested the tutorial system—which reminded me of an editorial reprinted in the Oregon State Daily Barometer
of November '4 from the Purdue "Exponent."
This says that Syracuse University is the latest
to start experimenting to discover the most
effective means of teaching.
Twenty brilliant Freshmen were selected
to participate in the "tutorial survey course."
"Approximately three-fifths of the student's
time which would normally be spent in the
recitation room will be his own. This time will
be given over to supervised reading courses
which will involve a study of the successive
phases of civilization." Each student will be
assigned to a tutor who will give individual
help and supervision, holding a private conference once a week. There will be no requirements for attendance at lectures. Apart from
a few hours given to an essay and the conferences, the time will be free for reading."
The editorial concludes: "Obviously this
system would be impossible with a body of
several thousand students. The majority of
such a large group would not be the type of
students to follow this kind of study anyway.
It is entirely possible, though, that future years
will see the advent of such courses for selected
groups in leading colleges and universities."
The introduction of the tutorial system in
honor courses in Arts might be a good move
at U.B.C, but it would hardly do for the majority of students. However, there is certainly
room for improvement in the pass courses. I
have heard this university described as "an
educational slot-machine," and "an educational
sausage factory," and while I believe these
terms are too sweeping, dissatisfied students
might well be considering how individual initiative and responsibility can be increased
without tempting too greatly our human tendency to loaf on the job. For instance, would
fewer lectures, fewer examinations, and more
essays with greater credit, be a step in the
right direction?
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I was very much amused at the
remarks on the recent British election made in the column conducted
by your pet Parlor Pink.
From his great age and his personal experience of" current events
gained from his desk at West Point
Orey, Comrade Grantham doubtless
is a critic entirely competent to pass
judgment on Mr. Ramsay MacDon-
aid and the British Labor Party, especially after reading the editorial
columns of the "Manitoban."
I would, however, like this Pipe
and Pen merchant, as* well as the
student body to consider what the
Toronto "Saturday Night," one of
the most authoritative papers in
Canada, haa to say on the matter:
"Tha British electorate, in tones
that are trumpet-tongued, haa commanded 'Socialism In Our Time' to
creep back under its stone. The late
Labor Government, with its class
and sectional appeals and bribes, its
half-baked experiments, born of its
fads and 'isms', had brought British
credit and British prestige alike to a
lower level than any man now living can remember. The wiser heads
in that Government paused on the
brink of the abyss and realized that,
not by the way of the 'dole' and
such like deVious. and deceptive by-
paths, but along the high road of
retrenchment and constructive reforms, in well-night every department of the national life must Oreat
Britain walk If she is to reach the
table land of prosperity once more.
But just as, In Scriptural phrase, the
'dog' returns to his vomit,' so the
unwleer heads in that party-the
great majority of Premier Ramsay
MacDonald'a former colleagues-
craved for themselves and the country more and deeper draughts of the
evil brewage that they had concocted to the country's dire sickness.
They have learned the country's
view of their fool philosophies, masquerading as policies, in the crushing character of the unparalleled defeat that they have encountered at
the polls.
From every part of the Mtigdom,
from England, from Northern Ireland, from Scotland and oven Jiou
Wain haa the same verdict been delivered. It is a verdict that has
smashed 'Socialism In Our Time'—
most fortunately. For, otherwise,
'Socialism In Our Time' looked in
a fair (or, rather, a foul!) way to
smash the country."
In conclusion, I might state that
although we all expect opinions like
those of Mr. Grantham to be expressed among undergraduates, I
would suggest that the valuable
apace in the Ubyssey could be used
to better advantage.
Yours truly,
BFAUST

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We wish to express the regret felt
by a great many students that the
play offered by Arts '35 was refused
on the grounds ot length and lack
of humor.
As for length, the play could very
easily have been shortened; and it
.was certainly not lacking in humor.
These reasons are faulty and insufficient upon which to base a refusal.
Personally, we have seen the play
twice, and know that it has been
presented successfully many times
with Sid Evans as the leading character. The play contains better material and superior acting to the majority of those accepted.
In all fairness to the students who
got up this play, it should be admitted that it was far from being a
failure.
We wish to thank those of '35 who
spent so much of their valuable time
in producing the play, and It is to
be hoped that their unjustifiable action will not cause a natural reluctance on the part of those capable
of enacting plays, to present their
achievements for trial.

program, "The Subcontractor" was
an Ibsen-like psychological study of
a professor who didn't like dynamite
because it oscillated his diaphragm
and a country hick who wasn't su
wise and hence came to an untimely
end. The climax came when the
hero discovered he had kissed a girl
whose relations had had appendicitis—he therefore chewed dynamite
and exploded as the curtain went
down.
In "Operating Room Scene," the
Nurses investigated with realistic
thoroughness, the contents of an
Arts man found in the Lily Pond
after the Arts-Science fracas—a process which disclosed the whereabouts of the Lily Pond frogs and
the Library Silence sign. Unfortunately some of the lines, as in other
skits, were completely drowned out
by the vocal enthusiasm of the
Science  men.

The difficult task of holding the
audience's attention at the end of
the program was carried out successfully by the Musical Society,
whose nautical fantasy "H.M.S.
'Plni-O'Beer'" proved a lively burlesque of the Gilbert and Sullivan
Opera. After having done much
harmonious sweeping of the decks
ln Act 1, the sailors went to the
tavern in the town, in Act 2, and
amused themselves with pretty barmaids and their wares. Many well
known sea chanties were introduced
with "The Beer Song," a fitting
grand finale.
Intervals between skits were shortened by community singing and
yells led by the Pep Club, and selections by the Musical Society. In a
brief speech, Clare Donaldson, Junior Member, thanked all those who
had helped to make the performance
a success.

Editor Rests
Here we see the Literary Editor
recuperating after his supreme effort of publishing a Literary Supplement. The book to hla hands is
the latest discussion on the New
Humanism. In two daya he wUl be
up and about—about two hundred
pages from the end of the book.

rage): Say, what do you mean by
ripping a button off my shirt? Do
you think you are running a laundry?
NEW HUMANISM
The Hew Numanism—I mean the
New Humanism—is ah outcome ot
the Romantic movement, not the
Swiss movement. It is a development of an altruistic Humanitarianism. Altruistic, I say. Altruistic and
hit a dog. The dog turned and
chased Al so far that Al decided
he'd become a humanist—a New
Humanist.
Man now became an enlighteaed
animal divorced from any spirituality. (See Bono court fUes 1930). A
new school of thought grew up. It
grew up Into long.pants then had
recess. Then It became old enough
to wear plus fours. It kept'gaining
ground among the poets. Indeed, it
gained so much ground that the
poets and phtiosophers had no place
to stand and they were swept off
their feet. And so was the Literary
Editor.
The basic principle of tho New
Humanism Is to restore order out of
chaos and Chaos out of order. Out
of order? Yea, out of order, but the
plumber wtil have it fixed within a
week if you don't let him go to
sleep uder the sink. A new heir-
archy (spelt with one y) of values
wtil appear. Ninety-eight cent sales

The New Humanism arose In America under the leadership of Mr.

Service With a Smile
With Apologies to Robert Service
THEY sent me to College (guess I need it),
At Lectures and Labs now I slave;
Is it French, Greek or Latin, I read it,
The mysteries of Maths I must brave.
For they sent me to College (how I fought it),
I arrived in Vancouver this Fall,
But somehow the life's not what I thought it,
Seems, somehow, that Work isn't all.
I've sat in the rain at a ball game,
And cheered that Varsity win,
I've seen the big husky boys wallow
In mud that came up to the chin
I've heard maidens and men wildly screaming
When the captain has slipped in a shoal,
And I thought I surely was dreaming
When we scored that last winning goal.
There  are  friends  that  I made in-between
lectures,
There are girls who gave me a thrill.
Kisses I stole Ln the moonlight,
When 'all was quiet and still.
There's the flivver I have a part share in
That I take when I go out to call-
The freedom, the freshness, the fairness,
Gosh! I'm stuck on it all.
It's a place where the students are numerous,
And Courses that lead ... God knows where.
There are lives just erring and aimless,
There are exams just passed by a hair,      '
There are hardships that nobody reckons,
There are times when you're broke, but still
The College it beckons and beckons,
And I want to stay here and I will.
I study from morn till the evening,
I'm learning the same and the same,
But if I swat at my notes and my textbooks
They will have me at College again.
So I study . . . you bet it's no sham fight;
It's hard, but I've done it before.
And it's better than home by a damsite,
So me back to Varsity once more.
There's a College, it's haunting and haunting,
It lures me as never before.
But it isn't just college I'm wanting,
But all that a College stands for.
It's the loyalty that's been bred within me
It's the place where Tradition holds lease,
It's the beauty that learning haa brought me,
It's the ethos that fills me with peace.

"Its Uving up to its title." Some
claim it is not as good as last year.
The malcontestnts want "Something short and peppy," and suggest
"The Return of Chang Suey" be

Is sharply divided on the subject of
Louis 14—either "Its Dumb," or "Its
the only thing worth reading in the
paper."
"Pipe and Pen" has a larjp audience, which although appreciative,
has lately become critical. Theie is
a feeling that "the columnist has
recently been dealing with Upics a
trifle beyond his scope, which are
not of particular interest to the student body." They hold that "a
'Ubyssey' columnist is not quite in
the \ same class with the 'Province'
columnist—in that the latter is an
acknowledged free-lance journalist,
whose opinions his paper does not
even pretend to support. On the
ether hand, the opinion of a student
in the student paper is taken as reflecting the whole student opinion,
and the University is judged and
criticized accordingly. The columnist
is apt to forget that although it's
his column, it's also our paper."

HATS OFF TO MANITOBA
Saturday's game between U.B.C. and Manitoba Varsity was remarkable for several
things. Ae a victory for the local side it was
Unexpected by most of the gpectators. Aa an
exhibition of clever handling of a terribly
greasy ball it must have been almost unique.
As a contest wherein the outcome was in doubt
right up to the final whistle it was all that the
most exacting fan could desire. There if, how-
ever, yet another way in which this grid battle
was unusual and that is in the exceptionally
clean play which was a feature of the game.
The prairie boys were undoubtedly expecting a win; they had swept through aH opposition and required only this last victory to
secure the Hardy trophy. It must have been a
bitter disappointment to lose the cup by a
single point. They were possibly at a disadvan-

Doug proved to be a human dynamo
in Saturday's game; and electrified
the crowd many times by his wonderful running and ball-handling. He
proved fast and hard to stop.
tage playing in coast mud and comparatively
few of their supporters were present to witness the fine effort which they made to bring
the laurels to their distant university. Considering these facts there must have been a very
great temptation for the Brown and Gold
squad to make use of its only advantage1, superior weight. There was every incentive, it
might almost be said, every excuse for the
Manitobans to play a rough game wherein their
extra weight would have been of great advantage. But no; from the kick off to the final
whistle there was never a suggestion of rough
play, not even in the last few minutes when
hopes of Manitoba securing the honors were
fast diminishing.
One of the hardest things in sport is to be
a good loser.
Hats off to a team of real sports.

Gridders Enter
Final Week Of
HardiTraining
Now that the Big Four lads have
hung up their togs for another year
the Junior gridders have the undivided attention of "Doc" Burka and
already the results of this attention
are beginning to show. There has
been a large turnout at all recent
practices and as everyone is in the
pink of condition there is good reason
to suppose that the forthcoming
games will produce a snappy brand
of football.
The first game is against Magee
High School and takes place at 3:30
Wednesday, at Athletic Park. Both
Magee and Varsity have played three
games and lost two so they are tied
for second place in the league. The
teams are evenly matched and as
each requires a win badly the fight
should be on right from the stert.
On Saturday the Varsity squad is
scheduled to tangle with the league
leading Meraloma outfit In the last
Senior City fixture. Although tho
Blue and Gold contingent is unplaced
in this league it is nevertheless eager
to avenge its former defeat at the
hands of the Kitsilano aggregation.
Interfaculty Race
Held By Boat Club
On Coal Harbour
Sweeping over the murky waters of
Coal Harbor, the Freshman Eight defeated the Senior Eight by a decisive
margin in the first race meet of the
Varsity Boat Club, held Wednesday,
Nov. 11.
Unfavorable weather conditions
were detrimental to fast time. However, an excellent start was made and
the superior condition ot the Frosh
was evident early in the race. After
the newcomers had established a material lead the Seniors provided the
spectators with some excitement in
the form of a spurt. The upper classmen, however, could not keep up the
pace and the Frosh swept past the
buoy easy winners.
In the second race of the meet, an
encounter between Arts and Science
"fours," the engineers showed considerable superiority over their aesthetic rivals. Right from the gun
there was little doubt as to the ultimate winners and there can be no
question aa to the ability of Science-
men to use their mathematics to good
advantage when it comes to navigation.

Stars By 28-18
Varsity's Senior "B" men's basketball team was out-played 28-18 by the
Y.M.C.A. quintette in a fast game at
the Varsity gym Friday night. The
Blue asd Gold lads could not match
the combination of the "Y" but fought
hard and put up a sterling performance.
The first half was keenly contested,
and produced some fast ball, but the
half time score stood 14-7 fqp the
Triangle crew.
After the interval Varsity played
scintillating basketball and crept right
up to the "Y" boys, Matheson and
McDonald worked hard and time and
again their well-placed shots rimmed
the basket. The Y.M.C.A. team, however, finished strongly to take the
game 28-18. A Varsity last-minute
rally was smashed when Lucas failed
to find the hoop, with only sixty seconds to go. The play was evenly
divided all the way through although
the "Y" was lucky and got the
"breaks."
