A stupendous four-gtar feature will be presented in the
Auditorium it 18:05 aharp today when the Yakima Junior Cot
lege basketball squad, Harold King and a fifteen-piece oreheetra,
a nine-minute picture cartoon aad the Pep Clue wtil copibine
to offer up the latest and best ln the form of ballyhoo for to-
night'ggameintheU. B. C. gym.
The Yakima crew, twelve gtrong, arrived on the campus
late last night and were billeted in the local fraternity houses,
with about two in eaoh house.
This morning they had a workout
la the gym and at noon will be wel-
oomod' at the Pep Meeting when
Captain Bob Osborne of the Varsity
crew will introduce them from the
stage The "Three Cheers" will lesd
the students in a "Kla-how-yah" and
In general the visitors will be made
right at home. Their afternoon wiU
be spent in visiting the campus and
touring the city and at night they
take on the home team ln the second of a home-and-home series, the
first of which Varsity won. After
the game they will be entertained
by members of the team, and will
leave Wednesday morning for BeU-
Ingham, where they play that night.
Tickets for tonight's game,, whicn
have been selling at 25c, will be dispensed at the Pep Meeting by high-
pressure co-eds, and from aU indications there will be a sell-out.
Harold KlniT end Jack ' Emerson
have been rehearsing daily with then-
band and have Increased the number
to fifteen pieces in an effort to make
the show as big as possible. In the
nature of a "scoop" it had leaked
out that the versatile Mr. Emerson,
emulating George Gershwin and Irving Berlin, has turned song-plugger
and at a special hearing of the song,
granted exclusively, to the Ubyssey,
showed that his song (as yet unnamed) should do big things. He
will play a special arrangement of
it at the Pep Meeting! Harold King
will act as Messer of Ceremonies and
wiU co-star with Claude Hill in the
comic part of the show. This, with
the music, will occupy thirty minutes.
The Pep Club, which is handling
seat sale for the game, has been
working hard to keep up their end
in the show, and after long negotiations secured the kind consent of
Mr. Rosenbaum of the Motion Picture Skreenadz to run a nine-minute
screen cartoon.
The remaining thirteen minutes of
the show will be spent in yelling,
growling out songs and welcoming the Yakima team. Officials of the
Club announce that slides will start
the show at 12:05 sharp.

To Play 'Alibi' ln Spring
The Spring Play for 1933 is to be "Alibi," a murder mystery by Agatha Christie and Michael Morton. The play was
produced in London in 1928 and had a very successful run of
two years with Charles Laughton in the principal role" of Her-
cule Poirot. He is now making a name for himself in Hollywood
on the talking screen. It is believed that this ig the first production of the play in Canada. It also marks a milestone in the history of the Players' Club since this is the first time that a play
of this type has been chosen for the are closely connected with this gen-
"Debating at U. B. C. hu guttered a recession for ihe last
few years but this week will prove that debating, « a major
Varsity activity, his come back," atates Professor J. Friend Day,
mentor of the Parliamentary Forum. "I am extremely optim-
igtic as to the reaultg this year and it will certainly give debating
a great boost. It would please me beyond words if the 8. C. representatives were successful and I would feel that my efforts in
the Forum have not been In vain.*'
"•%« The first debate of
I wi
J is
Spring production.
The story opens with the first two
scenes laid in the country home of
an English gentleman. The members
of the household are discussing a
strange case of suicide that took
place the night before. One gentleman present is aware that the woman who committed suicide had
poisoned her husband the previous
year. He himself is murdered in a
very mysterious manner that evening.   Most of the people in the play
tleman and would benefit by his
death. Poirot, a famous French detective, who Is vacationing in England, enters the case and the story-
evolves about the, clever way In
which he solves the mystery.
The first try-outs for the Spring
Play will take place at 2 p.m. In the
auditorium on Friday, January 20.
Most of the try-out parts have been
given and a list of the various practice groups will be found on the
Players' Club notice board.
As Varsity students scramble for
their copies of the Ubyssey today,
on all important city corners news
vendors will be distributing copies
of the Vancouver Sun, operated and
controlled by other Varsity students.

of editing and hunting down news,
has produced the Tuesday noon edition.

hour this morning, the news desk
contingent reporting at 6:15, the city
desk at 7 and the remainder at 7:30.
Two and a half hours ot concentrated
industry followed and about 10 thc

St. John Madeley, Ubyssey Editor-
in-Chief wrote the leading editorial
and presided at the news desk, where
also worked Norman Hacking, Stu

included handling an wire news,

Under the direction of Mr. A. E,
White, the Chamber Symphony Orchestra will give a concert in the
auditorium on Thursday noon, sponsored . by the Musical Society.
The first number will be a selection by Humperdlnck from the opera
"Hansel und Gretel," a work projected by the composer and his sister, who wrote the text, as a diversion for her children. Growing to
operatic proportions, it was first produced in Munich ln 1893.
Two songs especially written for
orchestra performance will follow.
The composer, Sir Edward Elgar, is
considered the dean of contemporary
English composers, and the songs,
though short, are none the less excellent examples of his lighter style.
The program wiU close with a
Beethoven overture, one of the four

Institute Hears
On Walter Scott
"Sir Walter Scott—after 100 years"
still appears "the most variously
gifted of all English novelists," according to modern criticisms reviewed by Professor F. G. C. Wood
before the Vancouver Institute on
Saturday evening in Arts 100.
Professor Wood did not dilate on
Scott's obvious attainments: his narrative and descriptive power and his
ability to present tragic moments
with great simplicity. He was concerned with the characteristics of
Scott over which there is difference
of opinion.
Most generally condemned is Sir
Walter's failure to apply a critical
spirit to his own novels. He wrote
about distant periods, he digressed.
he prolonged introductions and conclusions, he made minor characters
more interesting than hero and
heroine. In short he had insufficient
sense of form.
One of his difficulties was the pro-
fuseness of his material. "He was
the most learned of Scottish antiquaries ... He did not "get up" the
periods of his Scottish stories . . .
They were a part of his being " The
novel was still influenced by the
rambling, picaresque style of the 18th
century Without precept to restrain
him, Scott readily indulged his desire to digress. He is loath to discard what Interests him. But to

the American men will defend capitalism. Rather than discuss 1066
they wiU hoid forth on 1716. I am
very optimistic as to the debate but
not so hopeful of a favourable decision."

The report of Eric Lazenby on the drainage aituation in the
Stadium playing field has been submitted to Council and so far
no definite action has been taken. The main recommendation
involves an expenditure of some twenty-four hundred dollars,
while there are two partial schemes in the air, involving eleven
hundred dollars and fifteen hundred dollars expenditure respectively.
It seem unnecessary to point out that as the situation is at
present the field is worse than useless. Obviously some action
must be taken. The question is should we embark upon the
full project and get a field that we can point to with pride, or
must we wait another umpteen years and put up with an un-
surfaced or a swampy playing space for our major games?
At present the Stadium Fund stands at one thousand dollars
so that some scheme must be embarked upon to raise the money
to launch the full scheme. There should be no doubt in the
minds of the students that we want a playing field and not a
greasy mud hole. The plan whieh ia under discussion at present
is to ask every student to donate one dollar so that the project can be undertaken.
Naturally there are those who will object to the scheme on
principle. Financial stringency will be pleaded, but four years
of depression and depression blabbers have rather inured us to
these ever-present wet blankets. They should be treated with
the contempt they deserve.
The Ubyssey asks every student to get behind Council and
assure a playing field second to none.in Vancouver.
Three months ago the Totem, one of the most valuable traditions of our University, seemed on the point of "going down
for the count."
The Ubyssey, realizing perhaps more fully the value of the
Totem not only as a tradition, but as an important medium of
exchange with other universities, issued a plea for support in
its not-to-be-forgotten "Have you signed your Totem waiver?"
It was another case of "Tuum Est."
Today we are happy to announce that the Students have
"come through in the pinch."
Daily, in a little office under the Arts building, Pat Kerr
and her competent staff are plugging away to show that, in spite
of hard times, they can turn out a Totem of which the University will be justly proud. Students, too, are co-operating in
the matter of photographs and information slips. In short, everything is going on schedule.
To the Student Body, and Pat Kerr's Totem Staff, we can
only say "Keep up the good work."
Institute Heart
Prof. F. C. C. Wood
(Continued from page one)
many of his readers these digressions
are just the vivid details that enable
them to live more completely In the
time of the story.
Modern critics also abuse Scott's
style. Edwin Muir ln the Spectator
deems it "a style notorious for its
carelessness. Yet carlessness is not
its worst fault: its worst fault is
booklshness." This accusation Professor Wood termed much overcharged. But he admitted that Scott
did write with carlessness not excused by the haste with which he
completed 26 novels In 17 years. It
was as VBuchan, his latest biographer,
had said. "He attains his great moments by a kind of happy accident
in defiance of his style." Scott was
a master but not a schoolmaster of
language. Like Shakespeare, he
wrote fast, and like Shakespeare he
could write abominably. But he is
always great when some great occas-
sion is presented to him.
It was suggested that Scott's novels lose much by his unwillingness
to d«pict young people in love. As
Barrie says: "The love scenes take
place between the chapters."
No new contentions have been made
regarding his power of character
drawing. "His Inability to analyze
character and to probe, as a dissector, In the modern manner, is conceded . . He is more concerned with
rapid action, and reveals his people
by deeds and speech, not by dissertation."
His depiction of humble Scotch folk
receives highest tribute. One of his
great assets in achieving this was
what Professor Wood called "inspired use of tiie Scots dialect." This
is Scott's own Invention. "It is spoken
Scots   uciibtrately   heightened
flexible .... perfectly  natural   and
yet as expressive as poetry."
As for Sir Walter himself, not all
the modern "debunkers" have uncovered anything to his discredit. What
some have called the snobbish folly
of building Abbotsford Is defended
by Hugh Walpole as revealing one
of the noblest bases of Scott's character, his love for the fine old tradition of the landed gentry. No suggestion of dishonesty ln the Ballan-
tyne failure has ever been whispered,
and Scott's assumption of that debt
justified the words of Carlyle with
which Professor Wood concluded:
"No sounder piece of British manhood was put together In that 18th
century of time."
Despite poor weather, Arts 100 was
well filled. Some 30 of the unemployed militia were among the audience. Dr. Shrum, president of the
Institute, was chairman.

It's Worth It
I have often thought that it
is a shame that no one reads the
Literary Supplement. Of course
that is an exaggeration; but not
too dreadful a one, for the general body of Ubyssey readers
who snatch their copy on Tuesday and Friday noon and turn
avidly to the Muck Page (or, if
more |han ordinarily intellectual, to Page Four.)
This year I think it is more
than ever a pity; because there
is a story in the latest Supplement which would hold the attention of even the most rabid
Chang Suey fan. It is "The
Glory Hole,',' by Arthur Mayse. Guaranteed thrilling—and,
for those who are interested in
other features, splendidly written.

Putting Out the Sun
While today's issue of the
Ubyssey is being
less leisurely by browsers in
the Library or guzzlers in the
Caf, the members of its staff
will be in the throes of getting
out the home edition of the
Sun newspaper. The few ancient Pubsters who have seen
the thing through before are
already (this is being written
two days ago) girding up their
loins for the fray, their feelings
a mixture of apprehension and
anticipation. It is a Big Day.
The thought foremost in my
mind at present is one of hope
that the many subscribers to
the evening daily will not be
disappointed by the non-arrival of their Sun at all tonight.
Look who's City Editor; O. O.!

The first column of a new feature
should begin either with song or

I'll buy myself a blue pencil, and,
having mutilated your best lines and
choicest fancies, will give them a
place here, so that the literary talent of the university may find some
outlet between supplements.

to their productions. If, however,

I began this feature with an appeal, and I end it with a challenge.
Some say that the writing-people of

you again, freshman, sophomore, or
(with my hat in my hand) senior,

Rev. Hugh McMillan
Urges Simpler Life
In Address to S.C.M.
Speaking before the S.C.M. at noon
on Friday, Rev. Hugh MacMillan
chose as his subject "Is Life Too
Confused for Christian Living Today?" In introducing Mr. MacMillan, the president stressed his fine
work as Secretary of the Student
Volunteer Movement ot Canada. He
is also Associate Secretary ot the
S.CM. On his way back to Formosa, where he has been for some
time, ss Principal of a Theological
College, Mr. MacMillan la conducting one or two study groups during
his stay in Vancouver.
Mr. MacMillan emphasized the
necessity ot leading the'simpler life.
The ordinary present-day life, he
said, is a hindrance to religion. Especially In foreign countries a Christian example is vitally necessary, ln
order to avoid misunderstanding of
the purpose cf Christianity. "I do
feel," said Mr. MacMillan, "that we
people who think we see farther,
think that there is a possibility of
bringing the East and West together,
and uniting tiie higher standards of
the West With the lower standards of
the East. Although," he added later,
"we have a great deal to learn from
the Orient"
He spoke of the large part played
by Economics ln the world of today. He encouraged the students to
try to find ways and means of enjoying the fullest life possible without neglecting their spiritual welfare and their example to others. He
contrasted the unhappirjsas of too
much luxury with the misery of
Speaking again of the necessity of
Christian examples in the last, Mr.
MacMillan told of the work done by
several earnest men, who are "doing
something for those who are down
to aspire after."
He spoke of the lack of feeling for
the "wider world" which he had
found n Canada. In closing, Mr.
MacMillan brought forward ths
thought, "Is a Dictator to tall us

Pyle Scores Six Points For
Varsity In Second Division
The Varsity Second Division English Ruggers scored a 9-3 victory
over the strong Marpole squad at
Oak Park on Saturday. The ground
was in very bad shape, its muddy'
condition making good rugby difficult.
Marpole had the best of the play
at the beginning, and forced Varsity
back to their own area. Finally they
went over for a try which went unconverted. Varsity tied things up
before the interval, when Pyle went
over for three points for the Blue
and Gold. The half ended without
further score on either side.
The second period saw the Varsity forwards "playing well, while
Marpole were hampered by the lack
of a man who was forced out by injuries early hi the game. Pyle added another three pouits to the Varsity score when he placed the ball
between the posts on a penalty kick.
Marpole were unable to cross the
Blue and Gold line, and Pugh finally made the game secure by going
over for tha second Varsity try. This
also want unconverted.
There was no scoring during the
remainder of the fame, despite pressure by both teams. The game ended with the score 9-3 for the Collegians.
Varsity third division English rugby squad received a set-back from
the Normal gridders at Douglas
Park Saturday afternoon, the score
being 8-0.
This contest turned out to be one
of the most surprising games of the
year as the University team were
playing seven awn short. Their lineup Included! four men in the serum,
three backs, and one half.
In the first half the Normal gridders succeeded in scoring their first
try, which was converted. Leaving
the score 8-0 tor the Normal.
In the last half the Blue and Oold
man carried the fight Into the enemies territory and succeeded in carrying the ball to the four yard line
where they ware held scoreless. But
in spite of this valiant attack tiie
Normal men scored another try
leaving the final count 8-9 for the

U.B.C. Intermediate B boys took
a rather sad trouncing at the hands
of a smart-stepping Meraloma squad
in a V. and D. encounter Friday
night when they went down 47-16.
Starting out with a compliment of
only six nven, as against their opponent's limit of ten, they received
a further jolt when Chernov was
compelled to go to the showers with
a strained ankle.
The score at half-time was 23-2
and considering the fact that Varsity
played the remainder of the game
a man short the score does not assume such gigantic proportions.
Dave Hunden was high point man
for the home team with a total of
three baskets to his credit. Billy Ad-
shead ran off with twenty counters
for Meralomas.

Senior A Hoopmen Defeated
On Saturday--In Good Shape For
Game With Yakima Tonight
Varsity Makes Poor
Showing to Lose to
Sparlings 48-32
Student Lack
Pep and Speed
Varsity's Senior A Basketball team
took one on the chin Saturday night
in a Burrard League fixture against
Sparlings at the V-AX. gymn, and
waa decisively defeated by a score
Maybe the boys wire too aure of
themselves and of their capabilities,
er maybe they had an off night, but
at any rate* the Sparlings outfit were
decidedly "on," and took advantage
of every opportunity witn the result that they gave the UA.C. squad
its went drubbing this year. On the
whole, the shooting ef both teams
was peer, but the Blue and Gold
lade missed plenty ef set-ups and
showed that they could de with seme
practice tn foul shots.
Varsity Lacks Usual Ftp
Varsity started the game flat-
footed, and, except for spasmodic
rallies, lacked the punch and fight
necessary for a winning team. Some
of the team were inclined to shoot
from too far out instead of trying to
work the ball under the basket, and
many almost certain chances were
On the other hand, Sparlings were
pounding the back-board with shots
from close in, and it seemed that
neither Harvey Mclntyre nor "Long
John" Purves could miss. Varsity's
sone defence was no use against tiie
opposition, who penetrated it almost
at will.
Sparlings Lead 12-0
The sporting-goods outfit started
on their rampage almost right from
the whistle and never once during
the game were they in danger. Mclntyre scored a brace of baskets
right at the start, and scored again
just after Kennington to make the
score 8-0. A foul by Purves and a
bosket and foul by Kennington increased the score to 12-0.
"Pi" started things for Varsity by
getting a foul shot, and Nicholson
scored a moment later. "Hooker"
Wright scored a foul and Osborne a
basket, but two tallies by Purves and
another by Armstrong put the score
to 18-6.
Varsity Calls Time-out
After a score by Bardsley, Mathison replaced Nicholson on the Blue
and Gold line-up, and Varsity called
time out. With the resumption of
play Kennington was on the scoring
end of two plays for Sparlings. Ken.
Wright tallied for U.B.C. and Mclntyre for the Storemen, to bring
the score to 24-10.
"Pi" CampbeU Gets Big Hand
The Students put on a momentary
spurt atter this and worked the ball
under the Sparling's basket. "Pi"'
Campbell, in a manner which wouiu
make any Jack-in-the-box jealous,
had three successive shots at the
hoop before he finally looped In a
one-hand throw to get a big hand
from the crowd.
Ken. Wright booited Varsity's score
with another basket, but two foul
shots by Armstrong and baskets by
Purves and Mclntyre brought the
half-time score to 30-14.
Score Even in Second Half
Rann Mathison, the smallest member of the U.B.C. team, showed his
worth in the second period, scoring
one basket and five foul shots in his
usual nonchalant manner.
Purves opened the scoring with a
basket from the side ana Matthison
dropped in two foul shots and a
pretty baaket. "Pi" Campbell missed
a set-up from underneath, and
Purves tallied a free throw. A basket by Nicholson and three foul
shots by Matthison brought the score
to 33-23, and made things look better for Varsity.
Baskets by Mclntyre and Purves
were equalized by Campbell and Osborne. After each team got one
point by the foul route, Mclntyre
and Purves each scored a basket and
a foul, and Osborne found the hoop
for U.B.C. A moment later "Pi"
Campbell scored two points to end
the scoring for Varsity.
Purves Ties Score
John Purves, the Sparlings scoring
ace, made two baskets in quick succession to bring his total individual
score to 21 and tie the league record.

Too Strong
Vanity Forward   line Lacks
Concerted Action, Score 3-0
Once more weakness on the forward line has cost Varsity victory in
a Senior Soccer contest. While controlling as much play as their opponents the Blue and Gold squad
failed in front of the goal-mouth,
and lost a 3-0 decision to Abbotsford
Hotel. The game was played at Cam*
bie Street on Saturday.
With Otie Munday still absent, the
forward line lacked co-ordination,
and displayed little combination during the game. During the first part
of the game, the whole team seemed
to be uninterested In the game, and
played In a lethargic manner. Toward the close of the half they
picked up considerably and were beginning to take a greater share of
tne game
Abbotsford were the first to attack, and indeed, were on the offensive for the majority of the period.
Their efforts were blocked by good
work on the part of McGill, Kozoolin
and Stewart, who checked well
throughout the game. The pressure
finally brought results, and the
Hotelmen's centre-forward broke
through to open the scoring.
From this time on the Varsity boys
began to take an interest in tho
game, and gave the "Buddies" goalie
a few anxious moments. However,
they lacked the punch which gets
goals, and were still a goal to the
bad at the cross-over,
The second stanza saw the Varsity
squad controlling a majority of the
play, but despite this, were unable
to score, while the Hotelmen added
two more goals to their total. The
forwards still lacked concerted action, and with Laurie Todd slowed
up with an injured foot, and Russ
Stewart on the half line having the
same trouble, the Varsity team fell
away considerably. The Abbotsford
eleven added their second goal on a
corner shortly after the Interval, and
went further ahead a few minutes
later when their centre-forward
scored In the corner from about
twenty yards out.
Kozoolin at centre-half started a
Blue and Gold rally, and played
splendidly to keep the pressure on
the Abbotsford goal, but the forwards
either missed their chances, or had
good shots blocked by defenders.
McGill and Legg presented a steady
defence from this time on, and
checked most of the Greenshirts' attacks with comparative ease. However, despite the Varsity predominance, the score remained at 3-0 until the finish.
Kozoolin at centre-hatf was the
outstanding Varsity player, especially in the second half. McGill also
turned in a good performance, Stewart worked well at half despite an
injured foot, showing good form
throughout the game. Of the forwards, Laurie Todd showed well  in

to win again tonight.
New Team This Year
As only a two year course is offered at Yakima, the basketball team
is changed completely at least every
three years so that the boys do not
have long to team together. With
the exception of Davis, the captain,
all members of the team are Freshmen and this is their first season together. Despite the fact, however,
the team works with machine-like
precision. They' play a beautiful

Comments On Interclass Sport
Dick Elson
when he was awarded two free
throws, but missed them both, and
the game ended, 48-32 .
As lt looks to us the same question of lack of organization has arisen this year as it did last, by those
in charge of interclass basketball.
Last year games wore played without referees, or according to schedule and results of these games were
not turned in. Reports now reach us
thnt the two games which Arts '34
played with Arts '33 and Arts '35
have been annuled by protest. The
reason being that certain men on the
'34 team were not members of that
class. Then again we hear that during
the Inst term no team whatsoever was
organized for thc Aggies.
It is certainly about time that there
was a Uttle interest taken by the various athlete representatives ..in the

Bob Ward Scores Five Goals
Against Last Year's
The Varsity team showed excellent
form on Saturday when It gave the
"Crusaders," last year's League winners, a thorough "whitewashing" at
Connaught Park.
, Within ten minutes of the whistb
Varsity had netted the ball twice by
brilliant shooting on the part of Bob
Ward and Will Barr. Thereafter,
until half time, "Crusaders" rallied
somewhat holding their opponents
down to one more goal, by Crick-
may. Varsity however x were always
in the enemy's territory.
In the second half Varsity showed
their real caubre. The forwards
played like a book, combining beautifully. Goals followed in rapid succession, Bar accounting for 2, Knight
for 3 and Bob Ward for 4.
In face of this crushing onslaught,
Crusaders played a most spirited
game and in to desperate rushes carried tire ball Into the Varsity goal.
Though the Varsity backs did
themselves Justice, It was the forwards day. Bob Ward, In particular,
played an exceptionally fine game at
outside left. Will Barr and Bans
were also on the top of their form.
Among the backs Sid Semple and
Henry Law showed up to advantage.
Team: W. Gibson, Tull, Ritchie,
Boisjoll, Semple, Law, Barr, Bans,
Knight, Crickmay and Ward.

3. Advise players to make arrangements beforehand for strip.
4. Know who you are playing; when

' Varsity McKechnie ruggers went
down to defeat on Saturday in their
first Cup encounter, when the Victoria Capitals notched a lucky 8-3
win on their home grounds. Despite
a 3 point lead at the interval, University of B. C. could not cope with
Victoria's kicking, aided by a strong
wind, in the second half.
Standard of play was ragged, and
almost mediocre, redeemed only by
brilliant rushing and dribbling on the
part of Varsity forwards. The Back*
field game of both teams was marked
by close checking and hard tackling,
but the scoring punch was aliasing.
Morris Best Man
Playing the gamp ef his life, husky
BUl Morris, HO lb. forward, ln his first
McKechnie Cup match, was easily
the best Varsity man in Royal Athletic Park on Saturday. His dribbling, blocking and* tackling was
above criticism, and his work in the
pack was invaluable. Morris was
ably backed by every member of the
serum, Rogers,, Senkler, Gross, and
Pearson showing to particular advantage
Backfield Play Irregute    i
What the team would have done
with more backfield support is hard
to conjecture, but it is apparent at
least that the threes were not functioning as they should. On defence
they were strong, but despite the
fact that the forwards had Victoria
penned in their own 25 most of tha
game, the threes continued kicking
at wrong moments, and otherwise
spoiled valuable chances,
Varsity Scores First
The students forced the play in
the first ten minutes, and with the
wind at their backs, made several
long kicks effective. Vic Rogers
scored five minutes after the start,
on a penalty kick from thirty yards,
awarded against Wharton. Lynn-
Patrick and Brian Hunnlngs were
breaking through but never got far.
Two men, usually Esson Young and
Kenny Mercer, smeared Patrick every
time he got the ball.
Pearson and Morris broke away on
a long dribble, but Victoria cleared
safely. Varsity forced the play in
the loose for the rest of the half, but
didn't quite get over. Although Victoria used an eight man formation
to Varsity's seven, the Point Grey
boys managed to get the lion's share
of the heeling.
■  Max Stewart Injured
Shortly after resumption of play.
Max Stewart, moved up from second
division only a week ago, received
a slight concussion and was forced to
retire. Wharton of Victoria followed
him shortly after, with a twisted
knee. Doug Brown and Jack Ruttan
broke away, and once again Varsity
forwards were swarming around and
over a bewildered Victoria aggregation. '
Victoria Scores on Break
Time and time again Varsity forwards formed the spearheads of fresh
attacks, but Victoria always managed to clear. Twenty minutes after
the interval, Jack Dunn of * Victoria
picked up a gently bounding ball
which had glanced off Ken Mercer's
foot, to go over untouched for a
lucky try. Varsity closed In determinedly, but a Victoria rally resulted
in a questionable penalty award
against Derry Tye. Campbell Forbes
made good the kick from forty yards
out, and Victoria grasped the lead
for the first time.
Desperate Finish by Vorslty
The closing minutes of the game
witnessed repeated thrusts by the
Point Grey fifteen, deep into Victoria territory. The forwards were
not letting up and the pressure was
telling 6n the Island team, but over-
anxiety on the part of the three-
quarters lost them many opportunities The final whistle found Varsity
forcing the issue, a 6-3 verdict in
favor of Victoria, and 1500 satisfied
Skipper Art Mercer, suffering from
his old injuries in the knee and bacu.
was not at his best. Brand was
steady, and what chances Owen and
Cleveland got, they utilized. Tye at
half played his usual safe game,
while Young and Ken Mercer were
powerful on defence. All of the forwards were excellent.
