Samuel Butler
Discussed By
Letters Club
Life and Works of Samuel
was ihe subject of a paper
presented to the Letters Club by
Robert Clarke on Tuesday evening
at the home of Professor and Mrs.
L. Robertson.
For the first twenty-three years of
his life Butter received impressions
that were responsible for much of his
future work; these impressions wore
largely caused by his parents. The
details of Butler's childhood are quite
faithfully given in his autobiographical novel, "The Way of All Flesh."
Education was early beaten into him,
and his childhood was a time of continued fear, and this early unhappincss marked him for life.
He attended Cambridge where records indicate that he was a good student. Hv. wrote occasionally for the
college paper. There occurs one statement which seems to have been the
principle behind Butler's work —
"Never let us hunt after a subject.
Unless we have scmcthine; to say, it

Painting Discussed
Before Art Club
"If a picture is any good at all it
must be a personal expression," Mr.
W. P. Weston told the Art Club at an
informal meeting on Wednesday. Mr.
Weston, who is Jive director of art at
the Provincial Normal School and
who recently had a one-man exhibit
in the Vancouver Art Gallery, stressed
the point of perso lal expression and
said that without it, a picture will
fall flat. This is, lie said, a fault of
professional artists who paint only
what appeals to the public and not
what   they   themselves  feel.
In his talk Mr. Weston gave the
four es.senitals which painters must
possess. These are sensitiveness, proper selection of details, skill and sincerity. Of these, sincerity is the most
important. "I think," said Mr. Weston, "that a lot of people do not see
through their own eyes but through
the eyes of nth.:- people," For example he showed that people from
the old country usually look at modern art through the eyes of Victorian
artists. They like an art which is
•'sweet and pretty" and cannot see
any beauty in pictures of our grand
and rugged mountain scenery.
B.C. Mining May Be
Major Industry
Mining Procedure Described at
"Last year, mining came very near
to being B.C.'s major industry," said
John F. Walker at the Institute lecture on Saturday night. "This year
it has a strong chance to take the
An audience nearly filling Arts 100.
revealed anew tbe great interest in
B. C. mining. George Winter was in
thc choir. Dr. M. Y. Williams of the
Geology department gave an introductory address, tracing Mr. Walker's career since his graduation from
U.B.C. After practicing as a mining
engineer, he was appointed to the
Geological Survey, and, when, the
post of Provincial Mincrologist fell
vacant, he received the position, to
the great satisfaction of the mining
men as well as that of the government.
In speaking on "The development
of a gold mine," thc lecturer first
gave a brief summary of, the geology
of minerals. "There are three main
types of rocks. First are those which
have been formed by the solidification of a fluid mass. These arc called
igneous rocks. Next are those which
have be<en formed by the erosion and
destruction of igneous rocks. Th.ese
are called sedimentary rocks. The
third group is composed of rocks
which have been changed from ths
original state by altered geological
conditions. These are called nieta-
morphic rocks."
"The first stage in developing a
mine is the prospecting stage. The
prospector, in modern times, is greatly aided by topographical maps. These
maps show the geological structure
of the territory into which tha prospector is going. He knows that
around the edges of areas of igneous
or granite rocks, there is likely to be
a series of gold bearing outcroppings.
He usually starts by panning a stream.
He goes up tlve sticam till lie can no
longer get a "co'or." It may be interesting to note that as little as 16-
1000 part of gold can be detected by
an expert panner. Then he goes up
the side hills, panning tlu dirt, tracing the lead. Or perhaps he mounts
a bridge to scan the surrounding
country for outcroppings."
"Let us suppose that he has finally
found an outcropping. If the earth is
not too heavy, he proceeds to strip
the vein. He lines up the direction,
and digs a pit farther en. If this
docs not strike the vein, he widens
it till he does. He proceeds to take
samples. After he has the assay returns, he continues development.
When winter comes, he is forced to
sink a shaft and work  underground.
"Finally, he contacts a mining company, and shows them his samples.
The prospector is a notoriously poor
sampler. Instead of taking a representative sample, he invariably se-

Former Prof
Pays Visit
To Campus
"There is no doubt that economic
conditions are improving steadily,
stated Dr, Carrothers in an intervi-ew
on the occasion of his visit to the
campus Saturday. "I think that in
the near future, we will see a steady
increase  in employment."
When questioned as to his work in
Victoria, Dr. Carrothers could give no
specific information, as all reports are
made to the government only. Ht
did however, give a general outline
of the work.
"Our work is, at present, the conducting of a fundamental study of
the industries of tiiis province, not
only with a view to present conditions, but also Willi the purpose of
the best means of conservation and
utilization of the natural recources.
We ore thinking of the youth of today—the heirs to this province. In
other words, we think in terms of
handing down to the next generation
the resources of tbe province in the
best possible condition lor utilization."
"We hope, as a result of our recommendations, to secure a high standard of living for the future as well
as the present. Our study is based
on the consideration of tbe relation
of B.C.';> present industrial life to
foreign markets and future expansion."
"Also, we are making en effort to
alleviate present conditions. Much
thought has been given to the problem of unemployment. A slight increase in employment is already reported. Recommendations concerning
unemployment have been made. One
of these has been acted upon by the
Department of Education in their program for continuing the education of
On the prospects of graduates of
the university, Dr. Carrothers said,
"In this econonrc age, 'o make the
fullest use of natural resources, the
more educated people in industry, the
bett-er. It may be that a graduate
may have to accept a position which
will not utilize to the full his extensive education, but ho will, by-
means of that education, be enabled
to make many contributions to the
social, cultural, and ecomonic life of
the province, and thus aid in bettering conditions."
"Ho may be only driving a milk
wagon, but his education will be invaluable to the general social life of
the community. I do not believe in
limiting university graduates to the
number which ca.i obtain positions in
the professions. It is better for society that there be as many university graduates as possible. The more
highly educated a community is, the
better it is fitted to face modern economic problems.'

Science Pep Effort Successful
Enthusiastic Audience At Meet
Speaks Wednesday
One of the most spirited pep rallies yet seen on the campus was held yesterday noon in the Auditorium. The features
were Earle Hill and his band, the two teams, and last, but not
least, the Sciencemen. Well before 12 o'clock, the Auditorium
was filling up. Soon after their section was fairly well filled,
the Sciencemen unofficially opened the meeting by shouting
some untintelligle gibberish about the glory of science, followed
by clapping and then the inevitable "Mr. Noah."
^ New Yells
The Artsmen !n the gallery seemed
to resent this, and followed through
with a rather disorganized booing.
After much more yelling and catcalling, cheer-leader Bill Tremaine
came out to open the yell fest, but
could not make himself heard above
the Sciencemen's singing. However,
he finally managed to make himself
heard and the meeting started to the
tune of "Here's io Good Old Rum."
Several new features were introduced
in the yells, the most notable being
a perpetually speedier handclap; this
was instigated by the Sciencemen.
Alberta Faculty Represented
The Alberta team was introduced,
and gave a yeil, after which the
Varsity men came on, and regaled
the audience with a "Kitsilano, Capilano." Mr. Matthews of the faculty
of the Alberta U, then gave a short
talk, which was cut short by an unruly gallery spectator. It is rumored
that this man met a harsh fate at
the hands of some '37 members.

Graduate Returns
From British Tour
"Just a wonderful place; if I had
a guaranteed income that's where I
would live," declared A, K. ("Biff")
Macleod, after returning to U.B.C. on
Thursday, from a five months' tour
of England and Scotland.
Proceeding up tho famous Manchester Canal, he disembarked at the
great industrial centre of northern
England, and left for York. From this
historically beautiful city he travelled
to Aberdeen—tho "Granite City" was
the starting point of a cycling tout-
that took him through: Banff, Elgin,
Inverness, Loch Ness—where he waited patiently for Ogopogo's brother
serpent to appear, without scccess—
S.vkc, with its Dunvegan Castle, and
Glasgow and Edinburgh
Still on two wheels, he proceeded
through the pass of Glencoe, down
to Loch Lomond, and then to Dumbarton and Glasgow, where he spent
ten days: with regard to that city.
"Biff" says, "In spite of all they say I
think it's a fine lity."
At Edinburgh, the scene of a five
days' visit, Mr. MacLeod met several
members of the Kitsilano Boys' Band
and renewed his Canadian contacts.
He also visited Mehose and Dry-burgh
Abbey. Scott's last resting-place.

Arriving at Newcastle he immediately found himself disagreeing with
J. B. Priestly's harsh description of
that city as found in the hitter's

British Diplomacy
Subject Of Paper
"Castlereagh, aud a Diplomacy of
Reservations", was the subject of a
paper read by Denis W. Brown before
a meeting of the Historical Society
held at the home of Mrs. J. J. Conway.
"The chief business of British
statesmen was to oppose Napoleon;
and the year 1807, which saw the formation of a strong government under
Lord Liverpool, with Castlereagh at
the War Office, and George Canning
as Foreign Secretary, proved to be a
turning point in the war." declared
the speaker, after reviewing the early-
life of the man under discussion.
Castlereagh at War Office
Castlereagh's  work  at   thc   War Of-
j fice  was  instrumental   in   retrieving
[ Britain's   position   in   the   Napoleonic
1 Wars  —   "he   practically   doubled   the
strength of her military machine."
That Castlereagh should share the
glory of British military ai-hiovcments
with Wellesley, later Duke of Wellington, was revealed hv Mr. Brown
when he stated: "Without Wellesley.
the Peninsular campaign might have
dwindled into another sideshow, but
without the support afforded by his
friend in the Cabinet, the commander's army might never have fought its
way through Portugal and Spain to

Varsity is at present the victim of unmerited opprobrium in the minds of the citizens of Vancouver as a result of the grossly
unfair treatment which it has received from
the Meralomas in connection with the visit of ,
the University of Alberta Canadian Rugby
team. For it appears that the Meralomas intend to take advantage of the position which
Varsity has held in this matter to represent
the series with Alberta as being a financial
failure, and to attribute this alleged "failure"
to Varsity's refusal to give a sufficient guarantee towards the expenses of the undertaking.
Varsity's position in this affair is very definite and has remained consistently so right
from the beginning. The project of bringing
the Golden Bears to Vancouver was undertaken originally by the Meralomas themselves,
subsequent to the Bears' winning of the Alberta championship. Varsity, in view of its
loss on last year's intercollegiate series, its
present financial difficulties, and the fact that
it was Alberta's turn to invite the U.B.C. team
to Edmonton, did not feel prepared to risk a
further loss this year. And taking this attitude it was willing to go even so far as to concede the Hardy Cup to the invaders, although
it was not really obliged to do so under the
conditions under which the trophy is awarded.
In realization of the opportunity which was
thus being neglected, however, Varsity subsequently was able to come to an arrangement whereby its guarantee was reduced to
one hundred dollars and a percentage of the
gate receipts. And the Meralomas agreed to
this proposal on the condition that Varsity
should not advertise the intercollegiate game
until Saturday, the day of the last game with
the Meralomas, and thus not affect the gate
receipts of the two Meralomas games.
Varsity faithfully carried out its part of the
agreement, although by doing so it naturally
limited the probable attendance to students,
and hence likewise limited the gate reciepts.
But after it had fulfilled its obligations, the
Meralomas broke faith and accused it of not
paying a sufficient amount towards the expenses.
The unfavourable impression of Varsity has
now been created and it is a little late to attempt to correct it. It seems that the Varsity
representative missed his one opportunity of
doing so by not replying to the Meraloma accusations immediately after they appeared in
a prominent position in the Vancouver Sun.
But the students can do their bit towards saving their university's name from calumny by
explaining its true position to members of the
Vancouver sporting public whenever possible.
For Varsity has been victimized in a most unsportsmanlike fashion.
The   Wm-Ku 5
By Nancy Miles
Noon hours on the campus offer a wide
variety of entertainment. Do we take advantage of them? Caf. noon-hours are the
line of least resistance. Tne caf. isn't particularly inviting, but there is an attraction in
lounging lazily over a table, discussing trivialities. Library noon-hours, except in cases of
necessity, are unnecessarily studious. One
hour of the day is assigned to recreation in
every business, and this hour at University
affords opportunities for meetings, lectures and
entertainments for which an extra hour of
study is a poor substitute.
The poor attendance at class, club and Alma
Mater meetings can be accounted for by a lack
of ambition on the part of the students to take
part in their own affairs. In every government there are people who sit at home and
criticize the administration. Poorly filled halls
at lectures or musical concerts may indicate
something more serious: lack of culture or
just plain stupidity. However, there is one
explanation that covers everything. Laziness,
physical and mental. We're too lazy to hurry
through lunch and climb the stairs, and too
lazy to concentrate for an hour on a subject
outside our usual train of thought.
We're not intelligent on the whole. A little
stirring often brings amazing things to light.
It is probable that we will never again have
the opportunity to so conveniently widen our
information.   Let's utilize our noon-hours!
"In the Biology Lab." or "All Is Lost"
The scene is laid in a bare, long, narrow
room. The walls are brick halfway up and
then more brick only a different colour. There
are people standing around the benches dropping test tubes and muttering viciously about
it. There is a conspicuous lack of chairs.
There are, however, stools.   Something should
be done about that.
A vile smell of deadness permeates the air.
There is a tinge of alcohol smell, also.
Center front is a girl perched on a high
stool. In front of her, on the bench, is a microscope, attached to which is a slide. In fact,
the place is a biology lab.
We don't know her name. She is a student of biology, and she is looking at some
organisms called eugleana. The microscope is
very well focused, and she looks with concentration.
She has caught a single eugleana in the
center of the lens. A eugleana is .09 mm. long,
which shows how little it matters.
Suddenly she draws back, so suddenly that
the stool upsets and she is precipitated under
the many feet. People scurry about so that
she is visible from the orchestra seats.
A look of horror passes overher face. She
Girl: My God, he lunged at me!
Verification Dept.
This story is based on actual life as she
was over in the biology labs, last week. We
did colour it a bit, however.
"In the Prize Ring" or " All Is Not Lost"
The scene is a prize ring, as the title indicates. There is a gentleman beside the ring,
looking on with excitement. In the seconds'
corner is Mayhem Massacre, the Manitoba
Mauler's second. Mayhem Mauler is fighting
in the middle of- the ring with Cedric (Hearts
and Flowers) Montague.
The Mauler is punching Hearts and Flowers
viciously. Hearts and Flowers' response is
rather spiritless.
He finally does land a sock in the Mauler's
midriff, but wasn't a sock which justified the
the Mauler's next action.
He grasped his midriff, and folded up like a
card-table. The second is phlegmatic about the
whole thing. The gentleman, who has some
money on the Mauler grows visibly excited, he
leans over to the second and in a stage whisper remarks:
Gent: "I've jut my shirt on the Mauler and
he's losing his grip. (He tears a handful of
hair out of his own head.)
Second: "Naw, his grip's alright, it was his
trunks he was losing."

The above story is not based on truth and
each and every character is fictitious. We can
prove it.

A cry of anguish rent the air. (It
is much cheapter to rant nowadays.)
Then followed a demonalc laugh, like
the cackle of a maxim gun gone mad.
I bit my lips, one at a time, and
glanced at my perenpial companion,
Darnold Anderson. I was not too late
to see the color drain from his face
—and all over his nice new lecture
notes, too.
He looked at me. I looked at him.
Firmly, decisively, and simultaneously, unfortunately, we nodded. I carry
the bump to this day.
Filled with a grim and terrible resolve, we rose' aa one man, still looking at each other, or himself, if you
prefer it, and stalked out of the room,
heedless of the staring mob of ignorant freshmen, sophomores, juniors
and seniors, heedless even of Dr.
Sedgewick, who was playing Hamlet
as he had never played before.
We halted when we reached the
Lily Pond. "See here!" we snapped
savagely at each other, "We must
get to the bottom of this!" And with
one accord, we dived in.
Imagine our chagrin when we
bounced on, or off, the solid concrete!
At this fresh setback, even so stout
a soul as Darnold Anderson was momentarily cast down. ' "Curses!" he
moaned.   "The darn pool is—is— is—"
"Empty!" I suggested.
"Dat's devoid!" he exclaimed.
Then we both stood as if turned to
stone for from the concrete beneath
our feet came peal after peal of that
fiendish laughter.

His activity in foreign affairs was
dominated by a fear that "the quarrel between Latin and Slav might
preclude another struggle between
the empires of the East and West. His
careful policy in the Balkans did
much to alleviate this evil.
1812 was a great year in the history
of Castlereagh's diplomacy, marking
Napoleon's disastrous retreat from
Moscow. In following years, "the
gold of Britain, without which thc
war would have ended," assisted Castlereagh in his struggle for allied
unity. The Treaty of Chaumont secured this objective without actually

pected that reviewers thought it was i cornmitting the allied powers to a def-
by  Lord  Lytton  and so hesitated to
criticize it.
Butler's next work, The Fair
Haven, is in reality a satire which
shows up the fallacies of Christian
dogma and such Bible commentators
as Paley.
The book by which Butler is best
known is The Way of All Flesh. The
theme of the story is the struggle of
Ernest's personality for self development.
He had a very great interest in religion and the theory of evolution.
One of his fust pamphlets, printed
anonymously, was entitled, "The Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus
Christ as given by the Four Evangelists critcially examined." The'
pamphlet received no attention whatever.
After a visit to the continent in
search of health he returned with the
desire to write something worthwhile.
He began to touch up his magazine
articles and as he says, "They strung
themselves   together   into   Erewhon."
Butler disliked almost all famous
people of his period and others.

with which he reads; every reader
gets something. Such parts as the
chapter on the Rights of Vegetables
and the book of the Machine are particularly liable to a variety of interpretation.
inite statement of future policy: Castlereagh's policy of reservations
"made clear the sacrifices which England was prepared to make for the
maintenance of peace, and he had encompassed a temporary reconciliation
between diplomats engaged in the
pursuit of selfish interests.1'
The Congress of Vienna
The Congress that partitioned the
Napoleonic Empire "respected dynastic rather than national claims," at
Vienna in 1815. Castlereagh was definitely in favour of retaining the Balance of Power system, as a check on
various powers such as Russia.
The "Hundred Days" that marked
Napoleon's return from Elba precipitated a crisis, and "only the persuasive diplomacy of Castlereagh, the
bonds of the Alliance Treaty, and the
renewed streams of British currency,
paved Wellington's return to the
Continent  and Waterloo."

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir: *
I have received a copy of a letter
to you from Max Wershof, Assistant
Secretary of the N.F.C.U.S., in reference to a recent news account of
the cancellation of the American Debate Tour.
I have replied to Wershof expressing my regret and explaining my position . Would you please publish
this letter that the unfortunate situation may be satisfactorily cleared in
the jnindes of all concerned?
The implications of the article in
question were far from the views I
expressed when interviewed. Of
course the statement that I wired
Mr. Wershof expressing resentment,
etc., is utterly absurd. I sent no
such telegram nor did I make such
a statement to my interviewer. The
burden of my story was simply this:
my keen disappointment that the tour
had been cancelled especially since
last year's attempt to arrange a similar tour had failed.
I do. however, feel responsible for
the whole affair in that a mere statement that the tour had been cancelled clue to the Alberta debater's
inability to go, would have sufficed.
That my remarks were construed to
imply a censure of the N.F.C.U.S. is
indeed unfortunate.
The N.F.C.U.S., in all its dealings
with ouv society, has been efficient,
just and helpful. In this connection
I would mention that it was at our
request that the N.F.C.U.S. took over
the management of the Western Intercollegiate Debates.
Mr. Wershof may rest assured that
the N.F.C.U.S. has the full support of
myself personally and of 'the organization which I represent.
Expressing my regret for my unintentional part in the unwarranted
attack and also expressing the hope
that in the future closer adherence
to accuracy may be expected in Ubyssey news items, I am,

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I take this opportunity of adding
my feeble voice to that of the noble
"Campus Crab," as he lays bare the
monstrous graft of the C.O.T.C. I
am tremendously proud to belong to
an organization that produces such
public-purse-minded citizens as he.
One needs courage indeed to accuse
the Canadian people of practically
countenancing these iniquities through
their elected representatives, for it
is Parliament that dishes out the
dough. After delving more deeply
into the matter, I have unearthed
these further darksome facts:
(I) Should the graduates of this
organization ever put their training
to practical use .the government will
supply hospital care at reduced prices
or even provide free burials as they
become necessary.
(II) Twenty years ago when this
movement was at its height, half a
million members of this and kindred
organizations were given free transportation and board abroad by our
scurrilous government. Not only this
but they were paid! paid!! and PAID!!!
to support their families in their absence.   Paid a dollar ten a, day to go
i a great adventure And many are
even now loafing in our best sana-
toriums, pampered all their lives, but
still the recipients of universal sympathy. Free operations, free medicines, free nurses, free wooden legs,
everything they get is free! Others
more fortunate, received permanent
abodes next to old Mother Nature
in sunny France, or went on sea-
voyages for alltiine, at least as long
as they held together.
But to the green-eyed envy of all
these villianous grafters who had left
their country, those who had remained at home received even greater opportunities in the wealth of
highly-paid jobs arising out of this
mass desertion. No doubt this labor
paradise was a just reward for the
virtuous creatures who had refrained
from accepting the bounty of out-
wicked government.
At The Play
All the marvellous life and humor
of the fantastic and charming marionettes whose fairy-tale adventures
the Cornish Puppeteers unfolded Saturday was translated to the audience,
an audience wholly enchanted by this
"Wizard of Oz."
The marionettes in fact were almost as charming as the many children who watched and laughed and
whispered excitedly and blithely
strayed up and down the aisles; and
more diverting than those members
of the intelligentsia who were pleased
to be present in the full resplendence
of their beards, red skull caps and
I have nothing but admiration for
the technical skill and ingenuity
with which the puppets were manipulated and stage effects contrived.
The story was clever and the dialogue
light and simple enough. As much
cannot be said of the music, however,
which was of the trashy parlour variety hardly better than jazz.
I suppose it is unfair to bring in
Alice, or whom I was brought up in
place of Dorothy From Kansas. Alice
is a creature apart. But for all her
red locks and accent, Dorothy From
Kansas, I suppose is still a decently
far call from Little Orphan Annie
From The Chicago Herald-Tribune.
About puppets. They are, I think,
delightful when perfectly manipulated, but always and essentially unimportant. Perhaps they are a new dramatic form, but so is that nonentity,
the radio-drama. Gordon Craig once
said puppets would supersede the living actor.   Nonsense, of course.   And
We are writing this introduction before the rest of the work, if only to
be, different. Also because we can
praise our work without reserve,

indebted to the publishers of the Encyclopedia Britannica for their excellent volume, Remo to Sog, also to
the U.B.C. faculty of English, and to
Jenny, who shall remain as Jenny,
since more might be embarassing.

came along, and started to civilize the
Britons. He accomplished this by
making them bathe. Heretofore, the
Britons had never bathed (HOORAY!) except when they fell into a

Four Long Shots In Dying Minutes of Game Win for U.B.C.
The Thunderbird Senior A basket-
men were given a scare in New Westminster Friday when they trailed .the
Mackenzie-Frar.er team throughout
their game, and only snatched a four
point win in thc last two minutes.
The final score was 22-18 for Varsity.
Ihe start of the game found the
Students minu; a coach and four
players. The game started half an
hour later than usual, and only five
players were on hand to play. This
seemed to pat them off their game,
for half-time found them on the
wrong end of a 12-5 score.
Varsity Outplayed
Bardsley opened the scoring with
a nice long shot on thc first play.
McKenzie-Fraser equalized soon after
to have Varsity match the lead again
on a shot from the side by Pringle.
This was the last score by the Thunderbirds during the half, except for
a foul shot by Ross late in the half.
However Dou? I'raser's lads didn't
enter into the non-scoring spirit of
the thing, and they chalked up ten
more points before thd half ended.
Varsity Rallies
As the second half started Bardsley
again opened the scoring, followed by
two baskets by McKenzie-Fraser, to
put Varsity behind by a 16-7 score.
The Students rallied to make seven
points ir. a row, and come within a
basket of ticng the score. Dick
Wright dribbled the length of the
floor to score a nice basket. Here
play became more robust as several
fouls went uncalled. The ball began
to move faster, and passes were intercepted on both sides. Twice Varsity players intercepted passes, and
dribbled the length of the floor to
miss their shots.
Four Long Shots
Bardsley took a pass on tho foul
line and pivoted to score a nice loft-
hand shot, then wriggled free of
three cheeks to score again. Ross
sank a foul .-hot and Douglas of the
Westminster team scored a long shot.
Four points behind and with two
minutes to go the Thunderbirds proceeded to sink four lovely long shots
to win the game. Jim Osborne sank
the first one, followed by Pringle.

The Hardy Cup has gone back to the prairie on the back
of the Golden Bear! A great team from the University of Alberta outplayed the Thunderbirds yesterday afternoon to win
an exciting football game by two touchdowns: one definitely
deserved and the other a matter of chance. With all the color
and noise that should attend an inter-collegiate football game, a
crowd of five hundred spectators, by far the greater number of
them students, watched the Thunderbirds go down to defeat on
a slippery field.

morning. Please turn in to S.C. office or write VV. F. DeBeck, Arts

Wednesday will see a return meet
between Varsity and the Britannia-
Magee forces. Last time Varsity went
clown to a rather ignominious defeat
when very few men turned out, and
after the next couple of meets were
abandoned, the opinion was prevalent in some quarters that the track
men had finally been washed out.
However we expect Wednesday's results to entirely dispel this illusion.
Varsity, realising the formidability
of her opponents, will be out at full
strength with such stars as: Harvey,
Barber. Gansner, Stewart, Heron,
Vrooman. Patmore, Irwin and thc
eternally lazy Slott.
For those who have not procured a
lift to Technical High, cars will be
available—leaving the gymnasium at
3 o'clock.
Varsity started the game with a
great burst of speed and had the
crowd on its feet in the first minute
as Bolton took the Alberta kick-off
back fifteen yards, and Kendall
threw a pass to Mclntyre'to take the
ball half way doWfT the field. Two
plays later Kendall kicked, and tho
Alberta receiver was tackled behind
his goal line to give U.B.C. their one
point of tho game
end run but were forced to kick as
the next play went for no gain. Willoughby took the kick and ran it back
twenty yards. He and Kendall continued to elude the Alberta tacklers
after receiving punts until late in
the last quarter when they began
dropping the slippery ball. On the
other hand the Bears, less used to
the mud, were usually smeared in
their tracks by Varsity tacklers. who

2nd Div. Loses
To West Van.
Playing with a greatly weakened
forward line, Varsity's Second Division "A" rugby fifteen met disaster
at the feet of the Barbarians from
West Vancouver.
Bitterly fought rugby was played
during the entire game and at the
final whistle Varsity was at thc short
end of a 9-0 score. Varsity's three
quarters played good rugby throughout, although there was much nice
individual work on tho part of the
forwards it was their weakness as a
whole that w;w largely responsible
for tho defeat.

White. Wood. Clement, Housser, Johnson, Cantclo:i. McMullen, Griffen.

Varsity had the kick-off and the
play ranged for a while about mid-
field. A dribbling movement on the
part of the North Shore lads was
stopped only by a safety touch and
a twenty-five yard kick. Morris almost succeeded in scoring for the
Thunderbirds when he followed up
his own kick and nearly regained
possession behind the line, but play
returned to mid-field.
