PRESS LOSES
TO PULPIT
Baird. De Poe Defeat
Kitchen. Mossop at
Friday Forum
MICHAEL VERSUS SATAN
" 'And there was war in Heaven,
when Michael and all his angels
fought Satan and his angels,' and this
same battle Is being fought on Earth."
But the forces of Satan were utterly routed at the Pub.S.C.M. debate
Friday noon. "Resolved that the
power of the press *s greater than
the power of thc pulpit," was the subject. S.C.M. took the affirmative and
the Pub. the negative. The chairman
was Prof. J. Friend Day.
FORCES OF LIGHT
The negative speakers, Dorwin
Baird and Norm DePoe (the forces of
light) were reverently escorted to the
field of battle by Pub. members,
marching to the strains of "Onward,
Christian Soldiers." There they met
the forces of darkness in the persons
of Alf Kitchen nad Geo. Mossop and
straightway went into action.
"I would like to remind my opponents," said Alfred Kitchen, "that the
press reaches more people than the
pulpit, that it is the foundation of
education and that the pulpit depends
on it for much of its work. Also it
is the greatest force in the field of
politics."
MUCK-RAKES
Dorwin Baird showed the differences in aim of the press and the pulpit. The press: "Go ye into all the
streets with your muckrake—gather
in all information that will tend to
hurt, to embarass, to wreck people
so that we may expose the minor
frailties of good people and allow our
evil friends to reign supreme. But
the maxim of the Church: Go ye
into all the world nnd rmke disciptes
of all men—for behold I am with you
always,"
"The majority of the populace is
influenced, the advancement of civilization aided and the path of progress opened and showed to the people of the press, the press rather than
the pulpit," cried George Mossop in
support of the resolution.
LIQUOR ADS
"Brethren," began DePoe, "has a
newspaper ever induced a man to
live a better life? No, on the contrary, it carries liquor advertisements
and panders to the rapacious, scandal
loving senses in man. A newspaper
is a soulless machine, baring peoples'
sorrows to the incisive, pitiless light
of publicity in a harsh world. People
who find themselves in trouble receive comfort and solace from the
church."
And Right triumphed. A majority
said so and the judges were unam-
inous.
Professor Day congratulated the
speakers on their style. Peter Disney announced the Forum meeting on
Tuesday evening. The motion supports the use of military sanctions
against Italy.
Aeronautics School

Students interested in Aviation are
again offered scholarships by the Boeing School of Aeronautics this year, it
was announced by the registrar yesterday. Four awards are made yearly in the form of flying, technical,

NEW EXECUTIVE
IS INSTALLED
The Aztec Room of the Hotel Georgia was the gay and colorful scene
of the initiation banquet held by
Phrateres on Saturday evening.
In an impressive candle-lighting
ceremony conducted by Mary McGeer,
retiring president, the new executive
was formerly installed.
Audrey Horwood, the new president, then officially welcomed the
hundred and fifty-five enthusiastic
new members. Beneath the blue and
gold of Phrateres' crest the initiates
pledged themselves to uphold the
Phrateres' motto, "Famous for Friendliness."
During the banquet congratulatory
telegrams from the Universities of
California and Washington were read.
Ardy Beaumont, president of the W.
U.S.. spoke briefly on the valuable
assistance that Phrateres was rendering the organization, and> of the new
spirit that was evident on the campus
since the club's inception.
Dean Bollert, honorary president,
gave the address of the evening,
which was followed by a toast to
Phrateres, proposed by the founder,
Clare Brown.
Other toasts were proposed by
Faith Hodgson, Mary McGeer, and
Jean McLean. Replies were given by
Miriam Cosens, Madge Neill, and
Molly Root,

FUTUREJJJSCUSSED
"The University has definitely undertaken to do some adventuring in
Education. There is pioneer work to
be done. The need presses on us urgently. In our work in the past lies
the hope for substantial achievement
in the future. No longer can our
good intentions be accepted a.s performance."
With tlie.se words President L. S.
Klinck concluded his address on adult
education in the auditorium building
last Saturday night.
President Klinck pointer! out that
adult education is not new; the same
thing has been clone in tire United
States and in England under the
same name or that of "further education."
Education  of  adults  is  not   impossible,  since  adults  of  around   forty-
five still have 80 to 85 percent of their
learning power left,  he said.
VARIED OBJECTIVES
"The objectives of adult education
are infinitely varied. It seems to make
intellectual growth continuous, broaden the educational interest, and help
the individual to make his own discoveries."
He pointed out that although many
members of the institution are against
the plan, a large group is in favour
of it, and moreover, "Whatever be
our stand on the question, the fact
remains that University extension is
alive and in active operation from
one end of the Dominion to the
other."
The Dominion government aids
adult education, according to Pres.
ident Klinck, by disseminating information, and the Provincial govern-

Howard Scott To
Address Students
Howard Scott, chief Technocrat, will
speak today in the Auditorium, on
the subject: "The Implications of
Technocracy."
Scott is a Virginian who has, however, received most of his education
in Europe. When the family fortune,
was confiscated during the war, he
came to Canada as engineer in charge
of several munition factories. On
America's entry in the war, he returned there, as one of the engineers
on the Muscle Shoals Project.
In 1919 he met a group including
Charles P. Steinmutz, Stuart Chase.
Bassett Jones, and Thorstcin Veblen,
These men formed the "Technical Alliance."
This grew into Technocracy. Scott
was enabled to use some vacant rooms
in Columbia University, and he here
employed a staff of draughtsmen to
put his findings into chart form.
In 1932, Technocracy received a
large amount of newspaper publicity.
The theory became a subject of international interest, Now that this
organization has reached a large
enough membership, Scott is making
a speaking tour of the Pacific Coast
and Canada. He intends to return
to the east via the Canadian Prairies.
Vocation Talks
Are Valuable To
Undergraduates
By TOMMY BERTO
For the third year, the Alumni Association is arranging Vocational
Talks for the undergraduates of thc
University.
Thc speakers are carefully selected
and the talks have been of a high
order. The whole program involves
considerable work on the part of the
Alumni Committee. Now, who is it
done for'.' The answer is simple —
These talks are intended for any student who has not definitely and finally decided what his vocation is to
be. If you are in this class, and a
great many students are, you will
benefit from attending these addresses. Of course, there is no compulsion,
and we realize noon hours can be
lovely periods of idleness, but one's
future i& also a fairly important consideration. There arc many reasons
why you should attend these meetings, but perhaps the most important
is to broaden your ideas and outlook
concerning your career.

Results
ACADEMY HEARS
STATISTICIANS
Members of the B.C. Academy of
Science met in Science 200 Thursday
evening to discuss the use of Statistics. Dr. Hart of the Pacific Biological station at Nanaimo, Dr. Hatfield
of the Vancouver General Hospital
and Mr. Straight, inspector of schools,
were the speakers of the evening outlining the application and use of statistics in their particular departments.
Dr. Hart, in referring to his own
field of Biological research, explained
the use of statistics in revealing the
trends of population both in man and
animals with special regard to quality
and quantity.
"By these methods we may combat
adverse influences, and with the added help of experimentation with animals we can offer solutions to these
problems."
DISEASE STATISTICS
"The interpretation of disease statistics in the prevention of disease is
a veritable human drama behind figures," said Dr. Hatfield. "Our special problems are tuberculosis, cancer
and heart disease and it is from statistics that we draw our vital information in combating these diseases."
Mr. Straight gave a new angle on
education when he declared that
"through statistical methods we aim
not only to educate but also to advance the Science of Education." To
modern educationists this plays an
important part in their work, he explained, just as an example of this
in the change in the teaching of reading from the ABC method to the
word method.
"The response to the recently instituted policy of increased intra-mural
sports on the University campus has
been extremely gratifying—and if the
student body continues to demonstrate
the same interest and co-operation as
it has in the past few weeks, there
can be no doubt as to the ultimate
success of the scheme."
That, at least, is the confident statement of Harvey Carruthers, publicity
manager for the committee of direction, made during an interview with
a representative of The Ubyssey on
Monday afternoon.
"While some of the classes have not
shown an especially active interest,
and have failed to field teams for certain scheduled events, the general attitude of the student body toward the
intra-mural sport programme seems
very favorable," he continued.
Carruthers pointed out that while
the new policy has scarcely had time
to get under way, the number of students taking part in the various sports
which come under the programme is
constantly increasing, and the standard of competition is high.
One of the main drawbacks to the
scheme at the present time, he declared, is the fact that at present there
is no qualified full-time director of
athletics to superintend the training of
athletically-minded  students.
"Although Senate failed to make
any definite statement following its
last meeting slightly less than a week
ago, we understand that the matter
of the appointment of a competent
instructor was referred back to the
Board of Governors with approval,
and a recommendation for immediate
action.
"If such is the case, it seems likely
that the main problem holding back
the programme will be overcome in
the near future. With a paid instructor to organize the various interested
groups on the campus, intra-mural
athletics will undoubtedly attain a
success never before approached in
campus athletics,
"So far there has been no 'discovery' of exceptional talent to bolster
the senior teams in the various sports,
but we must not expect too much in
the first month or so. It is next year
that the real benefits will accrue,"
he said.
Last Friday's games drew more support than any previous intra-mural
games this year, Carruthers decalred.
An excellent programme has been
drawn up, which should result in
close competition and a norrow margin of victory for the division leading
the rest of the University at the end
of the year.
Sanctions Form
Debate Topic
The resolution before the Parliamentary Forum in its meeting in Arts
100 at 7:30 this evening is: "That in
the event of military sanctions being
imposed against Italy, this House will
fight in accordance with them."
Prof. J. Friend Day will act as
chairman. Frank Thornier will lead
the affirmative, and Tom Marshal the
negative. Both speakers are trying
their luck in the Forum for the first
time.
Speaking of the debate, Ludlow
Beamish declared: "It is a very important subject, as the League has
imposed on Italy economic sanctions
which  come into effect Monday."

ADULT EDUCATION
When President L. S. Klinck on Saturday
evening addressed members of the Vancouver
Institute on "A Plan for Adult Education," he
expressed the self-same opinion that has been
expressed several times in the editorial columns of The Ubyssey during the present term.
"... the University would be well advised
not to draw heavily upon the existing professorial staff, but, rather, to make provision for
a small staff under a Department of University Extension which would be ample to meet
the majority of requests for extra-mural instruction," Dr. Klinck said. Further, he
pointed out that "the first duty of the professorial staff is to the students who are registered in the regular courses and, unless the
staff is materially increased, it would not be
fair permanently to impose additional teach-
loads upon the present members...."
In The Ubyssey of November 5, we suggested to the administrative officers of the
University that their treatment of the student
body is not good enough, and that the students
at the college pay high fees for the privilege
of a higher education.
On Saturday evening, President Klinck, to
all practical purposes, repeated that statement.
We are gratified that the head of the University is in agreement w'th our recent stand,
but at the same time we wish to clarify our
position. , «5;| j
Previous editorials appear to have been
seriously misconstrued. It must be pointed
out that The Ubyssey does not object to Adult
Education as it should be, operated under a
department of University extension, but we
do object to the present policy recently instituted by University authorities "to meet an
emergent situation."
Apparently authorities took an important
step without sufficient forethought.
It is to be hoped that before the Adult Education programme is continued, important
changes in policy will be made, and the suggestion made by Dr. Klinck at the Vancouver
Institute meeting will have been acted upon.
The senior members of the professorial
staff must remain on the campus during the
regular sessions of the University.
THE ONE AND ONLY AIMEE
We read in the Edmonton News that Sister
Aimee has come to town and spread enlight-
ment to the effect that modern day college students are a fine unstanding lot, that women
who clrink and smoke are a low element, that
co-eucation has her blessing, that mysognists
are adolescents, that the view from the hotel
window is great, and that she chooses not to
discuss Social Credit.
Evidently our good confreres of the Gateway, Alberta student paper, have been Contacting Life through the famed Los Angeles
evangelist, and judging from the husky tone
of their interv'ew article, have swallowed it
whole.

in company with Z. and N. we too essayed
forth to interview Aimee. After a decent heel-

questions and listened reverently to a discourse
on the blasphemy of evolution, until the Sister
thought us sufficiently tamed. Then we were
politely ejected.
The next day each of us scoffed superiorly
at the other two for being taken in ! Good old

ment  helps with  its   night   schools,
radio addresses and physical education.
ALUMNI EDUCATION
Another branch of adult education
is what is called "alumni education."
President Klinck said that, "no feature of the plan can render more service than the alumni to themselves
and to their communities.
In 1933 the Carnegie Corporation
gave $50,000 to further some new
work: it was decided to devote $30,-
000 to adult education. A survey
showed that the people were very
anxious to have the plan carried out,
so it was decided to sacrifice Vancouver for  the more remote  parts.
The plan is a series of lectures on
the island and in the Fraser Valley
and the Okanagan and Kootenays.
Lectures are to be delivered in series, along routes enabling the professors to make as many appearances
as  possible.
The speaker admitted however that
jdult education must be subordinate
to university education because the
people can only be educated if they
have some foundation to build their
further education on.
In conclusion, Dr. Klinck referred
to the effect of adult education on
the registered students at the university: "It is understood that the
plan adopted has nothing of permanence in it. but was devised solely to
meet an emergency situation. Further, it is agreed that when the permanent policy is formulated, the University would be well advised not
to draw heavily upon the existing
professorial staff, but, rather, to make
provision for a small staff under a
Department of University Extension
which would be ample to meet the
majority of requests for extra-mural
instruction.
"Obviously, the first duty of the
professorial staff is to the students
who are registered in the regular
courses, and, unless the staff is materially increased, it would not be
fair permanently to impose additional
teaching loads upon the present members no matter how insistent the demand for outside lectures might be."
Seventh  Book
Display On
France
The Library shelf has been arranged
this week by the two French clubs,
Le Cercle Franca Is and La Canadi-
enne. The books have been chosen
not so much for deep literary value
as for general appeal. They are for
the most part contemporary. The following are a few of those on the
shelf:
"Coins de Paris," Georges Cain. Not
i, history of the well known historical
places of Paris but rather of little
known corners. The pictures are extremely artistic and carefully used
photographs.
"A Wanderer in Paris," F. V. Lucas.
The words of the author are indicative of his attitude and method of
approach: "Paris is too fortunate. To
have the Louvre is -enough for any
city, but Paris has also the Carna-
velet. To have the Carnavelet is
enough, but Paris has also the Chiny."
"Romance," Francis de Croisset. A
play within a play, this is a very intriguing romance with an unexpected
twist at the end. The story portrays
the love of an earnest young clergyman and a charming Italian chan-
teuse.
"La Maternelle," Leon Fraple. This
is an interesting study of a well educated young woman who is compelled through force of circumstance
to go into service in an "ecole maternelle." In his poignant style the
author shows how she gradually becomes evarything to the poor little
ragamuffins of the institution, and
how in this lowly duty she realizes
the fulfillment of life.
"L'lle Inconnue," Pierre de Coule-
vain. The author wishes to fill the
breach between France and this unknown isle, England. She writes in
the first person relating the adventures of a young Frenchman in England whose purpose is contained in
his words, "Je vais porter des mots
de France dans descerveaux anglais,
rapporter des impressions d'Agneterre
et les transmettre a des cerveaux
francais."
"La Vie Universities a Paris," Paul
Boyer. A most satisfactory account
of the founding of the University of
Paris. In a very clear-cut fashion the
growth of this institution is traced
down to the present.
"Les Silences du Colonel Bramble,"
Andre Maurois. The story, amusing
and easy to read, concerns three men
who belong to the Scotch Brigade. In
a mos'. interesting manner they discuss war and national honor. The
climax is reached when Colonel
Bramble is named General of the Brigade.
"The Architecture of the Renaissance in France," W. H. Ward. Presents a clear and interesting treatment of the evolution of tha arts of

Editor, Ubyssey,
U.B.C. FILM SOCHSTY
Dear Sir:
After viewing the excellent reception given the French film shown at
the Lyric Theatre, Thursday last, Hy
students and the public I believe the
time is ripe for the formation of a
U.B.C. Film Society.
There are many excellent first rate
foreign and educational films which
are never given a first run showing
in the city. Nevertheless, these films
are often of superior quality in direction, theme and treatment. Yhe
films do not appeal to the majority
of film-goers but, I believe, enough
are interested to support showings,
say twice monthly at downtown theatres (similar to showings of the
French film).
The proposed U.B.C. Film Society
would sponsor all screenings of this
sort instead of the Dept. of Modern
languages, or private individuals. In
this way interested individuals, for-'
eign language students and followers
and admirers of the film cut, would
be assured of regular showings of
this type of film.
The organization of the Society
would be similar to that of the Queens
Film Society. Yearly subscription
memberships would be offered to tha
students and faculty at a nominal
sum (say one dollar) which would
entitle them to admission to all showings of the Society. In addition, the
public would be admitted to the
screenings for a nominal fee.
To supplement these showings
there could be occasional general
meetings with talks on films.
I have a list of available motion
pictures of the type tha Society
would be interested in. There is no
reason why the Society could not be
a financial and cultural success at
the same time providing a worthwhile service to the public.
Is there any interest in such an
undertaking? What do your readers
think about the proposed society? I
would like to hear from those interested, offering suggestions or criticisms or active help in forming such
a society.
Yours truly,
LES ALLEN.

The Arts Ball was just marvelous.
The big ambition of my life now is
to meet Alan Morley. He certainly
has some swell idvjas. Perhaps he
could introduce me to the banjo player. One reason I enjoyed myself so
much was I had everything new,
from my formal dress down.
I bought the dress at ANNE MALONEY'S of coures. It tvas midnight
blue taffeta with small rhinestones
studded all over. It was cut very
low in the back and fitted like a
glove. If I do say it myself it was
one of the smartest dresses at the
Ball,   trust   ANNE   MALONEY   for
that.
• »   *
One reason it fitted so well was
that I had a new lastex girdle. A
girl's appearance as well as her stockings sure owe a lot to her foundation
garment. MARION BROWN has some
of the nicest two-way stretch girdles.
They are so light you can hardly feel
them, but they sure do their stuff.
Mine is a corselette model cut very
low in the front and back, with a
lace top. Just perfect for evening
wear.   You can get them in peach or
white.
• *   •
Dad finally consented to let mo get
the new evening sandals I've been
wanting. After all you can only go
to the Arts once a year. I went down
Granville to RAE'S CLEVER SHOES
and bought a pah* of silver kid sandals with the most complicated straps.
The only trouble is my dress is too
long and I can't show them off as
much as I would like to.
• »   *
I passed MAISON HENRI on my
way up Granville street and was attracted by the novel hair ornaments
in the window. One which I couldn't
resist was of small silver leaves that
peeked out from your curls in the
cunnlngest manner. They also showed
me some very regal ones in rhinestones that made me feel like a
duchess. The silver leaves were the
most original ornaments worn there-
did I feel proud!
»  •  •
I had my hair waved at CLOU'S on
Burrard street before the ball and the
girl showed me the cutest make-up
box put out by Leichner. There were
two creams, powder, rouge, lipstick
and eye shadow all packed in a small
round box which would fit almost
any purse. They are in different
shades for all types of skin and only
cost 35c. I, of course, bought one; it
is going to be very handy when I go
over to New Westminster for next
week-end.
I used tha eye shadow at the Ball
and saw that cute banjo player looking awfully hard at me.
It is easy to guess where wa went
after the Ball. The BLUE GOOSE of
course. It is so near the Commodore
that we didn't gat all wet running
about the streets finding our car and
everything. By that time we were
very hungry and the food at the
BLUE GOOSE is always good. It
was a very satisfactory ending to one
of the best evenings of my life.

be a school teacher, but you should
still attend these particular meetings.
The more businesses and professions
you hear analysed, the better fitted
you are going to be in selecting your
own occupation. You may find your
ideas on a special line of work are
considerably at variance with that of
the speaker, and there are innumerable examples of men who have
proved successful at a business which
they fell into quite by accident.
If you are not sure what you want
to do, then attend every Vocational
Talk.   Get the habit—be there every
Wednesday  noon,  not   because   you
should, but for your own good.
This Wednesday, Mr. E. W. Hudson,
Manager of the Georgia Hotel, will
ba the speaker, and he has some very
promising information to offer. Mr.
Hudson was born in Goole, England,
and he received his education in the
Old Land. He wrote the Civil Service Competitive Examinations and
took first place in the United Kingdom. His studies were interrupted
by the War when he joined up with
the Egyptian Expeditionary Force.
In 1919 Mr. Hudson came to Canada,
bought a farm in Manitoba and became a farmer for four years.
Distant fields called once more, and
he headed for California, entering the
hotel business in 1925. His career in
this field has been very successful.
In 1927 he joined the staff of the Hotel Georgia and advanced steadily
from the position of Chief Clerk to
the Managership in 1931.
Mr. Hudson is a pleasant speaker
with definite ideas as to the prospects
of University students in his line of
work.

all that again, you're crazy.
Episode Two
The Face on the Bathroom Floor
Through a narrow street in Chinatown padded a silent man, garbed in
yellow robes. He entered a tea-room,
through which he passed quickly. He
entered a doorway hung with ragged,
filthy curtains. On the other side
wsj a long passage. Scorning any of
the doors which flanked the corridor,,
he clapped his hands sharply at the
wall. A trapdoor opened and he went
down a long flight of stab's. (Note'
This has nothing to do with the story.
It is Inserted to give atmosphere.)
Meanwhile, Bindleton and Oscar
Scribblewell were gazing after the
fleeing limousine. It sped away into
the night before they could move.
"Bindleton," spoke the reporter, "we
must do something."
"But what?" asked the perplexed
administrator.
"Tonight, I shall go to Chinatown.
Where the insidious Chang Suey is
hiding I do not know. But I will find
him."
"But Scribblewell — this is madness.
Chang Suey knows you."
"I shall disguise my self as a gentleman.    No  one  would  recognize  a
Ubyssey reporter in that guise."
•   •   •
Scribblewell crouched behind an
ashcan, and waited. Along the alley
came a figure with a moustache.
Scribblewell strained his eyes.
"Professor Bummond! What is he
doing here?"
Three men rushed up and seized the
popular professor. They bore him to
a low doorway.
Scribblewell rushed after them,
dashed into the door. He bumped
against a hard panel. Turning he looked for the way that the men had gone.
With a chill of horror, he perceived

Maybe we can find one . . . maybe here . . . maybe
there one who will arise and save his brethren untold misery,

years on this campus, and have found that men are savages, and

I refer to the noxious habit of chip-purloining. No man is
lower than a chip purloiner. (Have you a little chip purloiner
at your caf. table? If so, wrap it up in a plain brown envelope,
and put it in the Arts letter-rack under M. It will be returned
to you in a much smaller package colored green.) I have seen
in one noon-hour in the cafeteria, supposedly a place where
ladies and gentlemen consume their daily dozen "Sangwidges,"
enough chips purloined to nauseate the famous crowd that got
free loaves and sardines in biblical times.
The other day, we were rushing with a full tray up the
stairs back stage. Some villainous chip-purloiner attempted to
wrap his hand around several luscious morsels on the aforementioned plate.  With the battle cry of my fathers .... I mean
my ancestors on my lips, I joyfully waged combat with the
wretch. Alas, my tray described a parabola, or was it an arc,
in the air ... . and neither of us had any chips.
Had it not been for this ignoble nasty person, I should not
have had to chisel my lunch from several other people ....
don't draw comparisons between chip- and sandwich-purloiners.

smooth walls. There was no sign of

And he was up to his ankles in rapidly rising water. Besides, this, the
walls were closing in, and a set of
spikes was coming down from above.
Apart from these factors, Scribblewell considered his situation as fairly comfortable,

The midnight mist was oozing
through the dripping trees as Ernest
Pertwee squelched his way down the
hill and round the bend toward the
gloomy hollow that was Deadman's
Gulch. Overhead the North wind
soughed through the rotting leaves
and rattled the wet boughs. Stumbling and panting, Ernest groped his
blundering way through the wet
murk, his mind filled with grim
thoughts, horrible fears, and a sick
hungering to be home, warm and safe,
where he could see what lay around
him.
An owl hooted and Ernest's hair
rose and slowly settled in silken
waves on his handsome Greek head.
He dreaded passing through Dead-
man's Gulch which lay just ahead.
All his life ha had feared and avoided
this lonely spot, and tonight his fear
had mounted to terror. He steadied
himself, telling himself that everything was O.K., but in his bones he
felt that something terrible was happening in the Gulch tonight. His
heart pounding in his ears, he stumbled on.
Suddenly he could go no further.
He sensed something ahead. Had he
heard something above the whistling
wind? He did not think so, yet he
could not possibly have seen anything
in the blackness ahead. Before he
knew what was happening he realized
he was moving again—slowly something was drawing him ahead against
his will. To what? Ernest did not
know. He only knew that ahead of
him in the dark was something he
must investigate, even though it be
his doom.
He banged his knee on a metallic
object and stifled a scream of pain
and terror.. Regaining his nerve he
reached slowly and cautionusly forward. Cold moist curved hard metal
met his touch. Suddenly he knew.
It was an automobile. He crept up
opposite the door, then froze in his
tracks at a sound from within. Half
moan, half sigh, it seemed to him the
most hair-rising sound he had ever
heard. Someone inside this unlghted
car, abandoned on this lonely road.
What did it all mean? Suddenly he
snatched open the door. A white
figure rose before his eyes in the
gloom. An arm flashed. Ernest felt
his head snap back, there were flames
around his eyes, his ears roared, and
then he felt the soft coolrress of mud
under his back and head, and there
was cool gentle rain in his face. Dimly he heard a car start up and fade
away into the distance, and then he
was overcome by a tremendous desire
to sleep forever. Nice mud, nice rain,
hot face, sleep . . .
(Apologies to Jessup)   (accepted—rj)
Ernest was picked up next morning
by a farmer driving to market with
the morning milk. Ernest's hair was
snow white, his eyes were sunken
and ringed wtih blue. He had rheumatism. He was an old man. Three
years later he died, without ever disclosing the horrid tale of his experience that rainy November night in
Deadman's Gulch.

Powerful Rowers
Show Great Form
Roxborough Has His Chance and Takes It
By ALAN MORLEY
Alas! Alack! Ah, well-a-day!
At any rate it was a black day, a day of sorrow and humiliation, for the Thunderbird
ru'ggers.
Pride went before their fall, for great was
the fall thereof; the seats of the mighty were ycars u B  c skJM*r- ,ed h,» Pre*

humbled, and their heads bowed in sorrow; and leadership of the Vancouver Rugby
the Rowers sat on their backs  and  ground Un,on. Saturday when they sent Var.
their faces in the mud, to the tune of 18-3
So,  on a  Saturday  afternoon,   the
exaltation of the Monday before went
"pop", and vanished, and our Blue
and Gold boys showed that they are
merely human after all.
MERITS WIN
There is no getting away from it—
the Candy Stripes won strictly on
their merits, and were exactly 19.83
times as good as Varsity at playing
rugger that was rugger.
Within ten minutes—no, five minutes—after the two teams trotted out
on the Oval, the Rowers had established their superiority, and it was
never in doubt for the rest of th« afternoon. One minute was enough for
them to score their first try, and after
that it was merely a procession, varied at one point by McGuire ploughing over to save a whitewash.
It was in the scrum that our boys
showed their fatal weakness. They
never even saw the ball all afternoon,
and when the scrum can't get the
ball out, thc rest have no chance to
do their stuff.
But the (Rubbers had, and did,
ROXY GOOD
Roxborough, who was penned so
tightly the clay Varsity played Vancouver, had his chance Saturday, and
made thc most of it. So did all his
team-mates.
The Blue and Gold, on the other
hand, were a disorganized rabble. It
took two men to make a tackle, and
three to bring a man down, except
9when they got in each other's way,
and then they all went down together.
There was a fatal hesitation about
Tommy Roxborough, who was last
sity  back  to the campus  with  an
18-3 defeat to disturb their studies.

SOCCER DEFEATS
COLUMBIA HOTEL
Okuda With Two and Macburney Score
 4> •	
Varsity's 2nd Division, English Rugby team is now undisputed leader of
its league—a title which has come as
a well-earned reward for the consistently good rugby its members have
played during the season, climaxed by
their brilliant display against the
West Vancouver Barbarians last Saturday—a bitterly fought game which
closed with the final score 9-0 in Varsity's favour.
Early in the first and most thrilling half, ill feelings were nursed by
the Barbarians over a disputed try
with the result that during the remainder of the half rugby of the most
savage variety was played—tackling
was harder than necessary, loose
scrums resulted in hacked shins, anci
line-outs developed into pitched battles. It was to Varsity's credit that
they remained thc cooler (emotionally, anyway) of the two, and fighting
together as a team they proved tneir
superiority over the more individual
play of their opponents in thc form
of tries by Leckie-Ewing, Cunningham, and Ron Andrews, All three
tries went unconverted.
Although not quite a.s spectacular,
as the first half, the second half resulted in a stubbornly fought battle
with Varsity keeping their opponents
on the defensive during practically
the whole half. However, West Van's
line held and the game ended with
the score unchanged, 9-0 in Varsity's
favour.
Much of the credit of this victory
must go to the forwards who bore
the brunt of the terrific first half
attackf everyone of them turning in
splendid performances, last year's
combination of Carruthers at scrum-
half and Ellis at five-eights also
worked well, and the team as a whole
were fine.
GAUL  MEMORIAL  CUP
PLANNED BY COMMITTEE
A committee, recently formed in
an effort to raise funds to perpetuate
the memory of Bobby Gaul, star Varsity athlete who died this year in
Vancouver, met Wednesday evening
in the Cafe Melrose to discuss the
feasibility of the scheme.
Thoy decided to use funds gathered
by voluntary subscription on the
campus and from grads to donate a
memorial cup to thc
University athlete who
best combines the qualities of leadership and
sportsmanship that
made Bobby loved by
everyone to whom he
was known. The contributions will be purely voluntary,
and on the campus are to be given to
Bern   Brynelsen,   John   Harrison,    or
SS Poker Hends, «ny number*,
now sccepted «« a complete «et.
what to do in a pinch, and often
nothing was done at all, while the
Rowers sailed through unmolested.
In other words, the game was a
complete demonstration of the fact
that rugby is not won by passive resistance, or single handed feats of
valor. It is a team game, and Varsity defaulted, We didn't have a
team there.
It also was a caution that games
are not won by last week's performance.
This "We were good enough to beat
Vancouver" stuff doesn't score any
trys against the Rowing Club (incidentally, I would like to know if
it is apochryphal or not—that little
quote in tho downtown sports pages
didn't sound like Varsity to me).
At any rate, the effect was there.
Tho little boast was enough to inspire
the Rowers with determination, and
the Thunderbirds with unjustified
overconfidence. It should be remembered that, if you make a boast you
can't back up, you will eventually
look  very silly indeed.
Of course, I shall make no references to the brilliant individual performances some of Varsity's men
turned in. We take it for granted
that they fight all the way through;
they haw proved it often enough, and
they did again on Saturday.
But that, either, does not make a
team.
McLeish
Out of U. S. Tour
Exams are even now catching up
on the members of one club on the
campus — that is the Boxing and
Wrestling Club. Tommy Gann, Varsity's coach, is taking several wrestlers and boxers from Vancouver down
to Portland, Oregon, to contest for
the Pacific Coast Diamond Belt
Championship. Roy McLeish who
stands in position for the heavyweight championship, and Varsity's
choice to go, had to drop out because
of the proximity of exams.
Some members of Varsity's Boxing
and Wrestling Club showed at St.
Mark's last night. The men representing Varsity were Bob Lowe,
featherweight; Hel Hansen, middleweight; and Les Wilson, heavyweight.
Mr. Horn in the Students' Council office. Ken Mercer and Howie Cleveland arc approaching the alumni for
donations. Faculty contributions w'H
be taken by Col. Logan.
The man to whom the cup will be
presented docs not need to be a member of the first teams, but he must
have quite a bit of athletic ability,
and must have displayed all-round
sportsmanship during thc athletic
year. Any undergraduate on any
team in any sport may qualify.
The selection committee, which will
consist of two graduates and three
members of thc fatuity, will have no
easy task in making their selection;
but will bo instructed to choose the
man approaching nearest to the perfection of the man in whose honour
thc cup is presented.      —EDMONDS.

Adanacs And
Varsity Fight Wed.
Wednesday night our Hoopers travel
to New Westminster to take on Jack
Borbarie's Adanacs, and are confident
they can again crash thc win column.
Rann Matthison, who was the main
reason why Adanacs gave the Province team such a scare, collecting 17
points all by "his lonesome," will
again be leading thes coring attack
against Varsity. However, Vanity's
theme song of "Are we downhearted
—NO!" will probably act aa an Inspiration to the boys, and with Coach
"Doc" Montgomery working them out
every day this week, they should be
in good shape for the tussle with the
Adanacs.
Varsity went up one more rung
in the league ladder on Saturday
when the Senior Soccer team defeated Columbia Hotel 2-1, at Kerrisdale Park. To date, Varsity holds
the fifth place in the nine team V.
& D. league, replacing the Liberals,
who were trounced 3-0 by Johnston
Storage.
Varsity set something of a record
by tallying their first goal within
half a minute of the opening whistle.
The students kicked-off. the ball
travelled straight from centre to the
Columbia penalty area, McBurney
booted it in. It all happened in the
twinkling of an eye. Goddard followed up fast and knocked the ball
from the goalie's hands, enabling
Okuda to score.
Play for the remainder of the quarter was low, neither team having the
advantage. Just on half time, Marino, the outstanding player for the
Columbians, scored with a first class
shot from one corner.
SECOND HALF FASTER
The game speeded up in the second half but the rought tactics of thc
Hotelman held up the playing of
much football. Okuda added the second Varsity goal late in the game on
a play similar to the one that put in
the first goal. Irish put in the shot
that finally resulted in the 2-1 score.
For the first time this season, no
substitutes were made by the coach.
The line-up was the usual one except
for the interchanging of Quayle and
Greenwood.
Sophs Out-
Hooped By Frosh
The Sophomores continued their losing ways in the Intra-Mural Basketball Series, this time allowing the lowly Frosh to white-wash them 46-13.
McLellan, Lafon and Macfie piled
up most of the points for the Freshmen, while Straight and Turner split
the Soph's total between them.
Golf Tourney
To Start Thursday
The University Golf Handicap
Championship tournament will take
place during the next two weeks. The
first eighteen holes will be played

players are requested to arrange their
own games for this coming meet.

Charlton, Gordie Livingstone, John
Berry, Pete Sharp, Ward Allen, and

shots with monotonous regularity,
which considerably disheartened a
hard-fighting bunch of students.
VARSITY LEADS
In the early moments of this contest, Varsity worked the ball around
like Veterans, and had the V.A.C. defence tied up in knots. Sparked by
"Patty" Patmore, they piled up 7
points without a reply from Bill Edwards'  boys.
The last ten mintues of this half
brought the same result as the game
with the Adanacs of the previous Saturday. Varsity again faded badly,
allowing their opponents to tie it up
and gradually forge ahead. Helem
McDonald and Peebles combined to
collect all the V.A.C. points in this
half, while Pringle and Patmore
scored two more baskets for U.B.C,
to make the score 17-11 for the Vacs
at the breather.
COLLEGE DAZE
For Ihe greater part of the second
period, the Collegians seemed to be
playing in a daze, and allowed the
V.A.C. team to pile up a 34-15 lead,
before snapping out of it.
Awaking out of their reverie, the
Blue and Gold checked and played
brilliant basketball for the few remaining minutes to hold the Vacs to
a single point while collecting 7 themselves. The final count was 35-22 for
the V.A.C. team.
In the second game of the weekly
double-header at the V.A.C,, the
400-odd spectators saw thc most
thrilling game of the season, between the highly-touted Province
team and the Royal City Adanacs.
"Bugs" Bardsley, Captain of last
year's Varsity Basketballers, popped
in two pretty baskets in quick succession, in the dying momenta of
the game, and shared thc hero role
with "Tony" Osborne, another former Varsity Hooping star, when the
Newsies eked out a one-point win
over the New Westminster boys,
36-35.
SCORES
V.A.C.-Nelll 4, Helem 7, Peebles

Playing a fast game, Varsity lost.
1-4 to the crack East Indian team.
For the first time, a bit of real cooperation was shown, the passing of
the forward lino, particularly hy
Knight, Ono and Bans, being exceptional. Bremner and Cornish played
good games on the defence.

WOMEN'S GRASS HOCKEY

finished their season undefeated when
they beat Ex-Magee 2-0. The co-eds'
defence proved too much for the

eleven played well and Ellen Boving
was especially good. Having finished
in first place in their division, the
co-eds next play for the championship of thc league.
