Price Of Totem
Decides Council
THE SUGGESTION that, due to
Increased cost, the price of the
1981 Totem should be $2.00 instead of the regular $1.50, was vetoed
by Students' Council at the regular
meeting Wednesday. It was decided,
however, that anyone who has not
deposited $1.50 before March 21 will
be required to pay $2.00.
A basketball dance, under the direction of the Women's Undergrad
Executive, will be held Saturday night
following the initial game of the
series with the Adanacs for the mainland championship.
Professors Buck and Lightall have
consented to direct operations on the
Stadium during the summer. Council
expressed appreciation that these men
are willing to give their time and engineering Knowledge to the students.
The amount collected for the stadium
will be turned over to Mr. Dallas, to
be held in trust by him. Professor
J. F. Day has agreed to audit the
books of the fund.
Among the bills passed by Council
were two for injured players—$108.70
for Albert Kirby who was severely
cut in a hockey game and $28 for Roy
Maconnachie, English Rugby Player.
"Although speaking very favorably
this evening of small colleges, I am
thoroughly and absolutely opposed to
limitation at this university," said
Evelyn K. Farris, LL.D., addressing
the regular Monday evening meeting
of the Vancouver Institute in Applied
Science 100 this week, on the subject,
'The Contribution of the Small College.'
The three advantages to be found
at a small college are that the professors must of necessity take a great interest in the welfare of the college if
it is to succeed; there is an intimate
personal contact between the professor and the students, and although the
courses are often limited, this contact
tends to increase the breadth of the
student's intellect; and in a small college the students themselves must
provide their amusements.
"When a student must supply his
own amusement, he soon learns that
only worthwhile things are worth the
trouble," stated Mrs. Farris. "In the
small college, he has a good opportunity to learn how to use properly
his leisure time," she continued.
In the United States and Canada,
the small colleges have graduated a
great number of important men. Leaders in all fields of activity have graduated from universities with student
populations of less than 1,000, stated
the speaker.
In the United States, Amherst College can boast such outstanding graduates as Calvin Coolidge, Justice
Stone of the U. S. Supreme Court, and
Professor Burgess, founder of the Faculty of Political Science at Columbia
University. Dartmouth is honored in
having Daniel Webster, Thadius Stephens, who was the leading influence
in free education for all children and
Philander Chase, who was outstanding
in founding established religion in the
States, said the speaker. Robert A.
Millikan, noted physicist, and Theodore Burton, President of the American Peace Society, received their
higher learning at Overland College,
Ohio, while Thomas Jefferson, John
Tyler, and James Munroe, former
presidents of the U. S. A. graduated
from William and Mary College. All
these colleges have less than 1,000 students enrolled at the present time.
In Canada, the universities in the
east are for the most part small colleges, hut they have had many distinguished graduates. Sir George Foster, Bliss Carman, and Charles G. D.
Roberts, studied at the University of |
New  Brunswick, while Dalhousie has j
been graced l,y such men as Dr. J. G.
Sherman,   President   of   Cornell,   and i
U.S. Ambassador to Japan and China,
President   Murray   of   Saskatchewan
and   the   Premiers   of   Newfoundland
and Canada, stated D, Farris.
The next meeting will he held on
Monday, March ',), at 8:15 p.m., in Applied Science 100.

Dr. Walter Kotchnig
Will Address I.R.C.
And S.C.M. Here
Dr. Walter Kotchnig, General Secretary of International Student Service with headquarters at Geneva,
comes to the University on March 8
for a short visit. Dr. Kotchnig is an
Austrian of international repute. As
a leader in the Youth Movement he
took a considerable part in Youth
Congresses. He himself was benefited
by student relief schemes which operated after the War. Now, as Secretary
of I. S. S., he is actively interested in
student relief problems. The International Relations Club has arranged
various meetings with him. On Monday night, March 9, at 5:30 p.m.,
University clubs will meet at Union
College with Dr. Kotchnig as speaker.
There will be in addition a public lecture on Tuesday, March 10, although
as yet definite arrangements have not
been made. On Tuesday night, the
I. It. C. will meet at the home of Dean
Bollert, when Dr. Kotchnig will be
THE HISTORY of Russia is that
of an imperialistic country,"
was the subject of the paper
which Jean Margolis gave at a meeting of the Historical Society on Monday, March 2, at the home of Pro-
fesor A. C. Cooke.
"The rise of imperialism or nationalism began with the reign of Peter
the Great, and has continued since
that time," stated the speaker. Especially from the time of Catherine
the Great, a lively interest in politics
was to be noted. The possibility of
taking an active part in European
affairs was not far from realization;
a new self-reliance manifested itself.
A new era was started for Russia.
The "colonization" policy took a great
extension arid established a firm foothold in the Caucasus. The settlement
in the Lower Volga and Novoross-
gish districts proceeded first of all.
"The influence of Russian liberalism in politics began to be felt in the
second half of the nineteenth century.
But liberalism cared little about exclusive and chauvinistic nationalism.
Russian liberalism was broad-minded,
free-thinking, and cosmopolitan. Such
also was the influence of Russian
literature, drama, poetry, fiction,
wherever it found its way. The intellectuals of other nationalities reflected
that state of mind, as they were
strongly influenced by the same literature.
"At the time when the revolutionary movement in Russia began to win
its first successes there was as yet no
disagreement between the Russian
liberals and the national intellectuals.
All national advanced groups fought
under the same banner, the political
banner. It was understood that the
liberation of nationalities was a part
of the general political liberation of
Russia, from the autocratic regime,"
said the reader of the paper. "The
tendency to acquire freedom jointly
and to postpone the fight for self-determination was especially strong
with the mere advanced parties, which
united Socialism with national aspirations.
"In the first place," said Miss Mar-

Try-outs for the forthcoming Oratorical Contest are scheduled for
Wednesday, March 12th, at 3 p.m. in
Arts 100. All those intending to enter
are reminded to have their subjects
Two men and two women will be
chosen for the finals to be held on
March 20th. Speakers will be allowed
seven minutes to speak on any subject of their own choosing.
Students who ordered photos at
Wadds' Studio at the same time that
they had their pictures taken for the
"Totem" are reminded that these are
ready for them at the Studio and are
requested to call for them at their
earliest convenience.
U. B. C. Faces
Epidemic Of
Chicken Pox
The students of the University have been exposed to infection from chickenpox during the
last ten days, according to the
University Medical authorities,
which means that all students
who have not yet had chicken-
pox are liable to come down
with it and should report at
once to the University Health
A man in 1st year Arts developed an eruption on February
23rd, and failed to report this
condition at the time.
Any person therefore, who
has been In contact with the student and who has not had chic-
kenpox previously will possibly
come down with the disease
within the next few days.
In this case, the student was
attending lectures at the University and thoroughly exposed
everyone that he encountered,
not only in the classes but in the
Musical Society practices.
It is the duty therefore, of
all students to report to the
Health Service at once in order
that they may be thoroughly
examined. In this way we will
be able to avoid any epidemic
outbreak on the Campus.
In the meantime any student feeling in any way indisposed is requested to remain at
home and inform the Health
Service over the telephone.
Engineering Institute Guests
On Annual Student Night
"Aerial maps are used for everything from railroad location in Ontario to tax-assessment in Victoria,"
stated W. Hall of Forestry '32, when
the students played hosts to the Vancouver Branch of the Engineering
Institute on the Third Annual Student
Night held last week.
Hall gave an interesting and lucid
exposition on "Mapping from Aerial
Photographs," and supplemented his
remarks with some excellent slides
on the subject. The application of the
three-point problem to photographic
mapping was explained, together with
the use of the stereoscope for determining elevations and drawing contour lines. The relative merits of
oblique and vertical photography were
dealt with, and the wealth of detail
possible from these methods as contrasted with the old, was forcibly
brought out. In conclusion the speaker
stated that Canada leads the world
in this field, and is annually increasing her activities in making maps
from the air.
Harry Thome of Geology '32
showed his familiarity with his home
province by speaking on "The Oil
and Gas Wells of Alberta." After
listening to Thome the audience realized why Alberta oil stocks do not
always pay dividends. The structural
provinces of Alberta consist of the
Rocky Mountain Belt, the Foothill formation, the Alberta syncline, the Interior Plateau and the Bow Island
Arch. The three principal oil fields
are Wainwright, Turner Valley, and
Red Coulee. To obtain one gallon of
gasoline from Turner Valley, 50,000
cubic feet of naptha are treated, and
the liberated dry gas is burned.
Such wastage is appalling, and
plans are under way for forcing the
gas back into the storage wells of the
underlying strata. The question then
remains, suggested the speaker, of
whether men will be able to get it
back again when they want it!
Rod Anderson of Civil '31 gave
the final address and became inspired
to dizzy heights on an entertaining
discussion of "Skyscrapers." "These,"
he said, "do not owe their existence to
steel, or elevators, or crowded cities
or rising land values, but are rather
the expression of a commercial necessity." In defending them, he
claimed that the high building is economically desirable, that it actually
tends to relieve traffic in  New York
The Philosophy Discussion Club
wishes to announce that all applications for membership must be in the
hands of the secretary, Miss Ethel
McDowell, on or before Thursday,
March 12. Students who are interested
in philosophy, and who have successfully completed Philosophy 1 are eligible   for   membership.
Toronto Press Misrepresents
Varsity Editorial On Atheism
(Special wire to 'Ubyssey' from Toronto.)
EDITORIAL in "Varsity" of February, twenty-fourth claimed
majority of students and graduates including many in Theology were practical atheists, that is, if they held religious beliefs they did not apply them in their daily lives. Claimed much
university teaching resulted in practical atheism. Toronto press
next day misrepresented editorial as charging majority of students
atheists and atheism taught at University.
Aroused furore.    Following  day
Handbook Editor
Rosemary Winslow has been appointed Editor of the "Handbook" for
1931. Coming from Prince Rupert as
a sophomore freshette in 1930, Miss
Winslow joined the "Ubyssey" staff
as a reporter. She has recently been
actively employed as an associate
editor of the "Totem." Her appointment as editor of the "Handbook" is
a further evidence of her progress
on the Publications Board.

'Varsity' editorial claimed misrepresentation and restated position but
University Board of Governors, mostly
business men, met and considered
charges   as   reported   in   downtown
!>ress. Board repudiated atheism and
nstructed University caput take disciplinary measures against 'Vanity.'
February twenty-seventh Provincial
legislature met members, urged investigation of university withdrawal
of financial support, suppression of
'Varsity' and arrest of Editor for bias-
Sihemy. Opposed by Government ma-
ority, and no action taken. Later
same day Students' Administrative
Council met and expressed confidence
in editor of 'Varsity1 but ordered publication suspended. Action of Council upheld by caput.
Believe they feared Board of Governors would withdraw compulsory
fee supporting Council and Varsity.
Staff retained will publish one final
issue this year in few weeks for flf-
teith anniversary. Many ministers and
prominent men in Toronto uphold edir
tor and express belief in truth of editorial statements. Toronto Globe inaugurated moral crusade to purge university of atheism and demand investigation. Crusade died natural death.
Student Council today published single sheet. Contained only bulletin
board notices and no news stories.
'Varsity* staff not requested to assist.
Students behind staff. Many demand
Council lift suspension. Downtown
press decry suspension without investigation of charges of atheism, which
they still think we made. Staff satis-
fled Council did best thing in consideration of attitude of Board of Governors. Forestalled more serious action

On Monday, after the candidates for presidency of the A.M.S.
have presented their platforms, an Alma Mater Meeting will be
held to discuss the re-instatement of the former Editor-in-Chief.
It will be remembered that at the time Grantham was asked to
resign, the Publications Board decided against a general A.M.S.
meeting to protest this move, with the sole object of avoiding further unpleasantness for all concerned.
The acting editor, however, accepted his present position with
the proviso that he should have the full support of the Publications Board in a campaign to re-instate Grantham. This attitude,
felt to be a wise one, in view of the Board's successful
attainment of other disputed privileges, met with the
favor of the whole "Ubyssey" staff. To this end the "Ubysey"
has not hesitated to express student opinion of the case, editorially
or otherwise. The result, as learned from interviews, letters and
similar sources, has indicated that a large part of the student
body is sincerely in favor of Grantham's re-instatement.
The deposed Editor-in-Chief undoubtedly defended student
rights in the recent difficulty between Faculty and students, even
at a considerable sacrifice of his own interests. It is believed the
student body recognizes this fact, and it was hoped that the re-instatement might have been accomplished by quieter means than by
calling an Alma Mater meeting, which unfortunately savors of
lack of confidence in Council.
The difficulty, however, is that the students are inclined to
confuse the two issues—the fight for free speech and Grantham's
dismissal. We have already attained the first objective with the
aid of Council. The meeting is concerned only with Grantham's
dismissal which was based on his record throughout the year,
grounds entirely distinct from student self-government.    ,
It is the opinion of the Publications Board that the charges
preferred against the ex-Editor do not justify his forced resignation. Although this meeting, called independent of the "Ubyssey" staff, involves the resignation of Council, the Board feels
compelled to give their unreserved support to the former Chief.
• The decision of the Vancouver Olympic Association to forego
the proposed Little Mountain Stadium releases, for unemployment
relief, the $60,000 which was contributed by the City of Vancouver. The Ubyssey suggests that a portion of this sum be used to
employ local unemployed on the University playing fields. If this
is done three very tangible results may be expected. First of all
it will insure an adequate stadium for the Canadian Olympic trials
next year—much better accommodation than a renovated Hastings Park will make. Secondly it will be a gesture on the part of
Vancouver—an indication that Vancouver people as a whole are
sincerely interested in the University and regard it in a friendly
manner. The possible objection that the money will be spent on
provincial, instead of municipal, property can be met since the
money will be used for the benefit of local unemployed and will not
involve any real investment in provincial land. The third benefit
is a direct and influential one. The economic depression, at least
as far as Vancouver is concerned, shows no signs of marked improvement and large numbers must continue out of work. Work
on the U. B. C. stadium will contribute to alleviating this condition.
Class and Club Notes
S. C. M.
Dr. Walter Kotschnig will lead a
discussion group on the world aspects
of Student Christian Movement organization, Sunday evening, March 8,
at the home of Mrs. Gibb, 3845-36th
Ave W., at 8 p.m.
This discussion is meant primarily
for students who are not able to go to
the camp at Copper Cove, March 7
and 8. All interested students are invited to both.   Please sign in Aud. 312.
The final address in the Tuesday
noon series will be given by Dr. H. T.
J. Falk, Tuesday, March 17. His subject will be "Charity Without Organization Lacks Virtue." Dr. Falk is well
known as the Director of the Community Chest project.
The fourth regular meeting for
this session 1930-31 of the B.C. Academy of Sciences will be held in the
Physics Lecture Room, Science 200,
Science Building, University Campus
at 8:15 p.m., Wednesday, March 11,
Dr. W. E. Harper, Assistant Director of the Astro-physical Observatory, Victoria, will present an address on  "Binary  Stars."
This meeting should prove of exceptional interest to all as Dr. Harper will embody the results of his
original researches on this subject.
The annual meeting of the Society
was held at the home of Mrs. Beckett, Western Parkway, Monday,
March 2, 1931
The following were elected to membership; Mary Newlands, Willard Ireland, Gladys Webster, Mary Warden,
Henry Johnson, George Cockburn,
Cecil Hacker, Donald Davidson. The
Executive of the Society for the 1931-
32 session is as follows; Honorary
President, Dr. Sage; President, Miss
Isobel Bescoby; Vice President, Willard Ireland; Secretary-Treasurer,
Miss Mary Wallace. Those whose applications were not accepted are reminded that there will be three vacancies to fill in the Fall for which
they may apply.
Applications for membership in the
Letters Club will be received by the
secretary until Monday noon, March
9. There are ten vacancies—five for
men and five for women. Applicants
must be second year students proceeding to the third year, and having
a sincere interest in English literature. Address all applications to Mavis Holloway, Arts letter rack.
era To
Open at Clover dale
While the more frivolous members
of the student body are disporting
themselves at the Co-ed Ball, the cast
and committee convenors of "The
Young Idea" will be giving the citizens of Cloverdale a taste of life from
another world. This will be the first
performance of one of Noel Coward's
most scintillating efforts in the dramatic field. He will be remembered
as the man who wrote both the words
and the music of "Bitter Sweet" which
ran in New York for more than two
years and which netted its author a
million dollars. For the last two years
it has been impossible to arrange a
suitable date for a performance at
Cloverdale so those who saw Hope
Leeming in 'Polly With a Past' there
in 1928 are hungering after another
example of the light amusing comedies which the Players' Club has proved itself so successful in producing.
Owing to talkie apparatus annexing the bock-stage space in up-country
theatres, the society has had a special
set of scenery constructed for use out
of Vancouver. This set is smaller and
more compact than that used in the
University stage but every little detail of its construction and colour
scheme has been carefully laid out on
lines approved by the most eminent
designers of scenic display in New
Friday night at "Pirates of Penzance"— a brown and white cameo
ring. Finder please see Miss Mawd-
sley or leave at Book Store.

South African Students Desire
Canadian Correspondents
Word has been received by Miss
Margaret Muirhead through the National Federation of Canadian University Students of the desire of two
South African students to carry on
correspondence with students at British Columbia.
One is Miss Irene Logie, 664 End
Street, Gezina, Pretoria, South Africa, whose interests are literature
and gardening and who wishes to correspond with male students. The other
is Miss J. Westerton, University of
Capetown, Capetown, British South

'Varsity' Editorial
Exposes Atheism
At U. of Toronto
Below is the editorial, published
by the Toronto Varsity which resulted
in the suspension of the paper by the
Students' Administrative Council and
demonstrations by students. The final
issue is still in doubt.
The Rev. Dr. Gibson, Presbyterian
divine of this city, believes that atheism is being taught at the University
of Toronto. If by that he means that
the teaching in a good many of the
courses here is of such a type as to
result in a practical atheism on the
part of the students, lie is probably
The student—particularly the student in philosophy, psychology or the
pure sciences—is an individual who
?:oes in for considerably more than his
air share of attention from sermonising divines and well-meaning viewers-
with-alarm. It is unfortunate because
it serves to make the student even
more self-conscious than nature has
already made him—and God knows
there is no more self-conscious organism in the world than your university student. From a delicious feeling
of naughtiness in the first stages of
discovering that the Divinity was not
all one had been led to suppose and
that there was perhaps not much more
than a certain engaging naivete about
some of the stories on which one had
been weaned, the psycho-scientific undergraduate proceeds to a condition
of glassy sophistication in which he
defies all the forces of purity and light
to show wherein the psycho-scientific
student does not stand peerless and
alone in a world of silly shop-girls and
petrified crones who attend religious
The students of one of our colleges
of theology have forwarded a letter,
we are told, to the Rev. Dr. Gibson,
protesting against his alleged insinuations that our students of theology
are not quite so faithful to the old
time religion as they might be. We
fail to see why these gentlemen should
protest. If they were quite honest,
they would be willing to admit that
the majority of graduates in Arts are
practical atheists, and that this includes a large percentage of the students in theology. This is not an indictment on our part; it is a simple
straightforward statement of fact. If
it is not by this time realized that the
number of people in contemporary
society who possess anything remotely
approaching personal experimental
belief in a Deity is extremely small,
it is about time it was realized. The
divines who are most popular are
those charming, engaging parsons
who read literary essays on Sunday
and spend the week upholding the
dignity of the church and trying to
form a synthesis between St. Paul,
Thomas Huxley, and Sir James Jeans.
And while a large percentage of university graduates never see the inside of a church from one year's end
to the other, most of those who do go
are there either for an aesthetic thrill
or to preserve their status in the respectable society whose bridge games
they attend and from whom they hope
to derive monetary gain during the
week. It is all very nice, but it is
We still hear a bit of the amazing
sophistry that "there are no atheists
—there are agnostics." The theological students who protest against Dr.
Gibson's remarks will probably reserve the right of the thinking man—
even if he be a theolog—in a tentative position of agnosticism without
being branded as an atheist. The obvious reply to that is that agnosticism
presupposes an element of intellectual questioning or doubt, which simply
does not emerge from four year's exposure to most of the liberal arts
courses. Much may be implied in the
B.A., the M.A.—or even the B.D.—
but doubt, we venture to suggest, is
not one of the implications.
"Students intending to graduate in
geology should get summer work on
the Geological Survey as' soon as possible, in order to find their liking for
the work," said Prof. S. F. Schofleld,
addressing an audience of students in
Applied Science 102 last Monday, on
the subject "Choice of a Profession."
After graduation, a graduate in
Geology has five fields for his life
work: 1. Geological Survey, paying
$2,100-$5,400 a year; 2. Company geologist, paying $1,800 up; 3. Geophysical laboratory, $2,500-$10,000; 4.
Teaching profession, $2,400-$6,000;
and Consulting Geologist, the top of
the profession, stated the speaker.
The life and activity of the geologist are ones of continual change, said
Dr. Schofleld. The profession offers
great opportunities for travel all over
the world.

Meet Porto Rican Debaters
Fun and Fundamentals
So long, Euterpe; drop in again
It really was an illuminating experience. I went down to the printers'
on the fatal night to go through the
well-known task of "putting the paper
to bed." In my unsophisticated, literary-editorial way, I thought to partake in great incidents, and to watch
a sight truly awe-inspiring—the mak-
ing-up and getting-out of this eminent Journal. And what do I discover,
I ask you?
One ex-editor working from half-
past seven to half-past one on a puzzle which another ex-editor produced
with a gleeful smile early in the evening.
One senior editor, one exchange
editor, one associate, three sport assistants playing "tap-the-flnger" and
The same infamous crew, reinforced
by two columnists and the editor himself, involved in the labyrinths of
"Run-Sheep-Run." In this game the
editor-in-chief proved himself forever
unworthy to hold the destinies of the
University in his hand. He forgot
what "Blue" meant, and ran home
instead of lying in wait with the rest
of his crew behind a linotype machine;
and the other side scored.
Spare moments were pleasantly
filled by stuffing various colleagues'
coat-pockets with confetti from the
hole-punching machine; with padding
the Sport Editor's satchel with bricks;
with playing miniature golf on the
table; and with eating divers suppers,
composed mostly of jelly-doughnuts
and fish and chips.
They tried to tell me that such
events were not normal; that a machine had broken down, that the work
was disorganised. But you can't make
a fool of a literary editor, any more
than you can scramble an addled egg.
I knew there couldn't be a "Ubyssey"
the next day, not with such goings-on.
And the next day, there it was, on
the dot, just as usual; with a front
page of undefaced symmetry, and a
back page positively classic. (As to
the inner pages, I preserve a discreet silence; the second was all
And Council plays with yo-yosl
What is the institution coming to?
A Reply
Mr. A. Fabian, in his extremely
well-expressed letter of the last issue
challenged a reply to his statements.
I think the shoe is on the other
foot. The continuously hostile actions
of the U.S.S.R., in attempting to
undermine the Democratic as well as
Capitalistic governments both economically and intellectually by helping
the striking unions, interfering in
China, India, and the religious broadcast of the Pope. They are dumping
foods on other countries, often by
alsiftcation, especially wheat, above
all obtaining the food and supplies by
forced labor, when their own people
are starving.
These things to my mind are the
real menace to the peace and prosperity of the world. That the other
countries retaliate is small wonder,
but it will be Democracy, based on
Christian principles that will win.
Recently in the local press, there
have appeared some rather futile letters recommending the abolition of
the Faculty of Agriculture.
But, in the "Economic Annalist,"
the new Federal Government bulletin,
appears this statement: "We now
face the third period of Canadian
Agricultural progress, and one which
challenges the resources of our Departments and Colleges of Agriculture. This period is characterized by
the need for more work of a research
character, especially in the field of
economics." This is from the message
of the Hon. Robert Weir, Minister of
Agriculture and needs no comment.
The cost of the Faculty of Agriculture
is not in the cost of graduating students, but in carrying on the Economic
Surveys of our Province, and in doing
the experiments, which in poultry
alone have given B.C. one of the finest
reputations in the world for class
of birds and production that leads the
If War we hope ever to stop,

You see them everywhere, and they
are looking rather down-cast. These
big he-men and hot papas who are
anxiously awaiting a bid to the Co-
Ed. This is the one dance of the year
where the men get the tough breaks.
Every other dance of the college year
is open to them, always providing it
is not too near the end of the month.
But in this, the last ball of the year,
the tables are turned.
There is a certain type of youth
that thinks he ought to have a bid, in
fact several bids, but the first of
March arrives with no move having
been made by any of the lady friends.
In this case he plays the pitiful act.
To each of these lady friends in turn
he goes, not as a tactful petitioner,
but as a confidant. The old line, "I
always ask you when there i%, something I want to know. You Ire to
satisfactory. You teem to understand
so well... Is there—have you heard,
er, do you think anyone will ask me
to the Co-Ed?" This line is no good.

she met him once, way back in September, in a crowded bus, and ever

gods by begging an Aggie for the
honour of escorting him to the Co-Ed
And so it goes. A dance of upset and
turmoil. It brings ire to the hearts of
many, and joy to the hearts of few.
Another phase of this annual disaster is exemplified at sorority tables
in the caf. Sorority girls flit from
one table to another (against all
principles!) looking up dances weeks
ahead of time. "Let me have one
with X. He's such a keen dancer."
"He's not so hot, he makes me dizzy."
"Are you having a dinner-party?" "I
should say not. Look at who I'm taking."
"We're going to the Commodore
afterwards, but if he dares have more
than one cup of coffee I'm sunk."
And so far into the night.
WonM-Be Presidents    U.B.C. Speakers Oppose
Present Platforms Amer,c,n Dom,,,at,0,,
The platforms of Frederic Grimmett and Earl Vance, candidates for
the position of President of the A.M.
S., are outlined in the following letters.
To the members of the Alma Mater
A year ago when my name was put
up for Junior Member it was my intention that, if elected, I would this
year stand for the office of President
of the Society. Coupled with this duty,*
as it were, is the ambition I have had
since coming to the University—the
ambition of some day filling the position of President of the Alma Mater
Society. And so I am asking for your
The only real point of a tangible
nature that I can draw to your attention is the Council experience I
have had during the past year. Ever
since I took the position of Junior
Member I have spent as much of my
time as possible seeking information
concerning the many branches of the
work of Students' Council.
There are just one or two particular ideas which I would like you to
consider. In regard to the Publications
Board you are all aware of the recent
trouble we have had in this connection. What I would like to see carried
out is this: The Publications Board
would have an executive composed of
the Editor-in-Chief, the two Senior
Editors, the Sport Editor, the News
Manager and the Business Manager.
This executive would be responsible
for the policy of the paper and would
be responsible to Students' Council.
In this way I think that a lot of possible strife might be avoided.
I have always been strongly in favor of Inter-Collegiate competition
and I would be prepared to do my utmost in pushing along any Inter-Collegiate undertakings.
To close I would like to take this
opportunity to thank those people who
have seen fit to sign my nomination
paper and also those people who have
supported me in this campaign. Trusting that you may see your way clear
to elect me to this position,
I am
Sincerely  yours,
Frederic K. Grimmett.
I do not believe in making a number of promises that circumstances of
the future may not allow me to keep:
and for that reason I am not presenting to the students any elaborate
platform. But there are one or two
things that I would like to see settled and will, if I am elected, attempt
to straighten out.
The chief issue at present before
us is whether or not we have or are
to have in the future Student Government. During the past year it
would seem that Student Government
is a myth and that the affairs of the
students are run by the Faculty Council. The initiation was an admirable
example of this; the students at an
Alma Mater meeting last spring endorsed a certain policy of initiation
and expected the Students' Council to
carry it out, but the Faculty Council
stepped in and told the Council what
the initiation was to be like, and the
Council duly followed those instructions against the wishes of the Students. Now if the Faculty Council are
going to run the affairs of the students, all well and good, but if there
is to bo a Students' Council, then let
them have control of Student affairs.
And if I have the good fortune to be
WHEN THE Porto Rican debaters speak at the Auditorium on
March 9, they will be opposed
by two members of the U.B.C. Debating Union who are new to the
ranks of inter-collegiate debaters. The
team will consist of Everett King of
Arts '32 and Frank Hall of Arts '81.
In choosing this team, Jack Sargent,
president of the Debating Union, says
that their public speaking ability
which they have displayed at Alma
Mater meetings was the most important fact considered.
Frank Hall is this year's president
of the Law Club and has participated
in many "mock trials" which have
been conducted by that club. He has
thus had much experience in delivering impromptu speeches and arguments. He believes that active work
in the Law Club will provide valuable
experience to any public speaker and
especially to debaters. He has also
participated in debates while attending Victoria College and has, since
coming to Varsity, been included in
Inter-Class debating teams.
Ev. King is an active member of
the Debating Union and has over ten
years' experience as a debater.
He has been a prominent speaker
at many Alma Mater meetings and
has there shown his ability to hold
the interest of his audience.
Both members of the team are conversant with the subject of the debate
which is "Resolved that this house
condemns the growing domination of
the United States in this hemisphere."
The U.B.C. debaters will uphold the
affirmative side of the question.

November 1917, Lenin issued a declaration of the rights of nationalities

Russian Democratic party was that

Coeds To Battle For Title
In Prelim Saturday Night
After settling all the sordid financial details of the Vancouver
and District League play-offs the Varsity senior "A" basketball
team will face its hardest test of the season Saturday night when
it meets the Canadian champs, better known as the Adanacs, in
the first of a five game struggle at the gym.
It promises to be quite an evening. Even the Varsity team
admits the Adanacs are good too and the teams should dish up just
about the best basketball game of the
Council has also relented to the
extent that there will be a basketball
dance after the game and everything
promises to be just lovely.
And another thing. The basketball
executive is quite annoyed about a
statement made by one Lynne Pickler
in one of our better downtown journals. Pickler (Mr. Pickler to you)
said the V.A.C. gym could hold twice
as many as our pride and joy. This,
says president Thome, 1s base slander. Our Gym can seat 1440 spectators and the best crowd they ever
had at the V.A.C. was 1800 and the
majority of them had to stand up.
With standing room thrown in the
Varsity executives figures it could accommodate 1880.
For the people who care for such
things a section of seats has been reserved and tickets can be obtained
from Arnie Cliff© while the general
admission tickets are obtainable at
the door.
In spite of the long lay off, the
Varsity team has not been idle. Four
practices were held this week and the

ng practice today. What they will do
Saturday promises to be good.
All the boys are in first-class shape
for the struggle and if they are beaten
will have no excuses and if they win

may be able to play. Alpen was dropped due to a little scholastic difficulty

Racketeers Hold Tournament
The first rounds of the Annual Varsity Badminton tournament, played
Monday night in the gym, showed no
very jrroat up-sets. The second round
of the play-offs were held Thursday
nijrht and detailed results will bo announced later. Finals will be played
Monday night in the gym when a
large turn-out is expected.
A lone tally which glanced into the
net off the skate of one of the defenders three minutes from time, spelled
victory for the University of Washington Huskies in their ice hockey
battle with Varsity at Seattle on Wednesday night. A return game will be
played at the Arena next Monday
night following the professional struggle.
According to those who saw the
tangle, a fine brand of hockey was
dished up and the fact the teams were
very evenly matched made the affair
good entertainment for the large
crowd which paid admission.
The first two frames were scoreless and the final episode looked like
being a repetition of the earlier sessions when with only three minutes to
go Ray Smart of the Huskies took a
shot from close in which glanced off
Irving Smith's skate and oozed into
the net. The Blue and Gold aggregation worked well together, all men
turning in good performances. Bob
Darrah was outstanding for the students.
As a sequel to the Seattle encounter, Huskies will travel north next
Monday and endeavour to duplicate
their victory, at the Arena. Members
of the local squad, however, are confident that they can take the measure of the Yankees when the latter
are away from their home rink.
The Varsity stick wielders are anxious to enlist support for the coming
battle and have arranged to have a
special section of the Arena reserved
for University students. Tickets
allowing admission to both professional and college games will be sold at
reduced rates.
Those who performed for Varsity
at Seattle were as follows: McGregor;
Darrah, Falcolner; Smith, McLennan. Ramsden, Kelly, Carswell,
Wightman, and Mathews.
Cliffe To Be Leader
Of Gridiron Squad
Big things took place Tuesday
noon when the Canadian Rugby Club
held a general meeting to appoint its
executive for the coming year. Harold Cliffe, the powerful Varsity,
tackle, was elected leader of the Sen-1
ior squad by his team mates.
Johnny McLean who held down the
vice-president's position during the
past year will take over the duties
which the President, Earl Vance, has
performed so well during the past
season. McLean's former job will be
filled by Roy McDonald. Audrey
Cruise, previously on the publicity
staff will be business manager while
Herb McGregor and A. Pike were allotted the publicity and strip manager's jobs. The honorary presidents
for the coming year will be Professor
Davis and Dean Clement.

as to wind up the season with a

For Final Game Of Season
Final games in the Mainland Grass
Hockey League will be played on Saturday. Varsity is scheduled to hook
up with the league leading Cricketers
while U.B.C. will meet Incognitos.
Both encounters are slated for Connaught Park.
With only a single game of the
regular schedule to play and one postponed encounter to make up, the ultimate position of the college teams in
the league standing is fairly well determined. Varsity is practically safe
to take third place and should be very
close to Vancouver vvho will probably
be the runners up of the series. U.B.C.
will have to give place to all the more
experienced aggregations.
Track Stars
To Struggle
For Honors
Next Wednesday, March 11, aspirants for inter-class track honors
will take down the old spikes from
their peg, dust them off, and wend
their way to the Varsity oval at 2:16
p.m. There, before the interested gate
of the assembled cohorts, they will
leap, run, and throw things about to
the best of their ability.
However, in the opinion of those
"in the know," some really good competition will be produced and things
will not be half as bad as they sound.
If Ralph Thomas can tear off the
100 yards in 101/5 again, and if
three watches can catch him, all will
be well.
In the field events Alpen, Dirom,
and Ledingham will battle for supremacy. Nichols will be in the javel-
ine throw while Thomas will again
try to repeat his broad-jump success.
Thornber may cop the high jump
again but will have to jump "high,
wide and handsome" to beat Dirom.
Dirom, winner for the last two
years, will not be in the pole-vault
because of football injuries. Alpen
and Thomas may challenge his position this year.
The entries in the distance events
are heavy, an especially large entry
being made in the half-mile. The mile
is always popular. Alf. Allen, Bill
Smith and Swift of Cross-Country
fame are running this event.
In the three-mile Leo Gansner is
the favourite but Dicks should give
him a good run, while McLaren and
Northcott will make the race anything
but a picnic.
A feature of the meet will be an
inter-class two-mile relay, each class
entering a team of four men. The
competition is limited to runners not
participating in regular events. Frosh
are picked to win this event, having
many good men to choose from, such
as Allen, Shatford, D. Todd, Swift
and Nichols.
And another thing. The Co-eds are
in this track meet too; so come on
you lady-killers, turn out and watch
the fair damsels perform. You know
girls really can run. If you don't believe this statement watch the maids
of '34 in the sprints. And yet another
thing. The points earned by the women athletes will influence the final
Students will be given a great opportunity to-day at noon to feast their
eyes upon and hear Len Chamberlain's orchestra free of charge in the
Auditorium at noon. The Alma Academy master has outlined a snappy programme for the pep meeting which is
sponsored by the Varsity soccer club.
Saturday will see the grandstands
at Con Jones Park packed with students, maybe, to cheer on the Gold and
Blue sweatered footballers to victory
over their Chilliwack rivals.
A draw at 2 all was the result at
the Cherry city about a month ago
when the local squad travelled and was
given a rousing welcome. Only a last
minute goal saved the Collegians from
defeat and advance reports from the
rustic centre say that the strongest
team which has ever represented Chilliwack will trot on the field at 2 p.m.
Bunny Wright may be unable to
turn out for the Point Grey Boys, in
which event Cox will move to the wing
bringing in Howard Wright at half
back. Otherwise the regular league
team will do duty for its Alma Mater.
According to Mary Fallis, president of the Women's Track Club,
those interested in co-ed sport are
billed for some surprises on Wednesday next when certain freshettes with
enviable high school athletic records
are to appear in action at the University for the first time. It is thought
that the standards in several lines of
sport will be materially raised and if a
few records should rro by the board
some of those 'in the know will not be
very surprised.
Among those whose efforts are
considered as likely to compare favorably with previous Varsity standards
are Esther Paulin, Kitsilano High
School, sprint star, Laurel Rowntree,
Violet Mellish, Janet Higginbotham
and Bea Sutton. Several of these girls
were members of the champion city
High School relay team and it is
thought that Thelma Mahon, Sally
Carter and other well known co-ed
athletes will be extended to retain the
laurels earned in former years.
There is a basketball game at the local hall of exertion tomorrow, Saturday, night. On this auspicious occasion the Varsity
Senior "A" men, of whom you may have heard, will come to grips
or hugs, as you will, with the Canadian champs, the New Westminster Adanacs.
The College squad has played brilliant and consistent basketball this year and even overcame the Xmas exams. Then the boys
ran foul of the league executive but have at last settled the argument. Under the arranged conditions the Alma Mater Society
stands to lose quite a sum of money if the students do not pour
forth by the thousands to support thek idols. The team has been
shamefully neglected this year and hopes that it will receive a
little support from the campus at this crucial time.
Regrettable though it seems, or is, this column is dying a lingering death. There seems nothing worthy of mention and in any
case there are too many other little or big things to do. At any
rate there is a certain letter on page three of this present issue
which demands comment. «
May we point out. Georgie Grant and all the little Grants, that
in no decent soccer league is there ever a playoff for the championship. Therefore, that argument will not hold water. Furthermore,
as to the best team in the Arts section of the inter-class soccer
league we have only to point to records. If the lads of Sanderson,
by which we mean Education, have accrued or amassed more
points than the punters of Grant, then there is not much doubt as
to which squad has played the more consistent football throughout the season.
On the other hand, a friendly game between the two classes
concerned would be a good .idea although it could not count as a
regular game in the championship.
At last the local rugby Solons have done right by Coach Mc-
Ilmoyle and his Marvels. That is, they have awarded the league
title and the Bell-Irving Cup to the lads of rug. The squad thus
finishes its season with a record of eleven wins and one draw for
a total of 28 points of a possible of 24. In addition they have
scored thousands of points with very few against them.
They will represent the mainland against Victoria College on
March 21 when the provincial championship will be decided. In
the meantime Guggy Mcllmoyle will be pounding his victorious
lads into shape for the coming war.
Again, Mr. Mcllmoyle, we salute thee.
Tennis Notice

scedule posted on the notice boards.
Golf Club Notice

THIS average house, with
plenty of electrical devices
and abundance of light, uses
only a dollar's worth of light
in 17 April days. It may use
more in winter but it will use
less jn summer.
It's a typical Vancouver home
whose bills for electric service
are among the smallest items
on the household budget.
Yet for *1.50 to *2.00 a month
more it could enjoy electric
cooking. It could even double
its use of current for only about
half as much more.
