Oarsmen to Ply Their Blades Against
Vancouver at Coal Harbor
To-morrow will be the students' chance to see the crew who represented
them at Seattle last week. The First VIII. will row a two mile race over the
Coal Harbour course against the Vanoouver Rowing Club, The Vauoofver
men are out to avenge the defeat meted out to them by the student* last
year. Thorpe and Towgood, who were on the sick list at Seattle are now
back In their old seats, and the whole crew Is pulling together well,
The First IV. will race against a crew made up ot Vancouver men. The
Varsity man are; Allardyce (bow), Elliott, Harrison, and Madeley (stroke).
These are all experienced oars, and are sure to make a good display,
The raeo in whioh the Second IV.
were to have taken part, has had to
be cancelled. Two of tbe crew have
followed the example ot Oxford's
stroke oar, and took measles a short
time ago. This has hampered their
practising together, and thus they are
not In good form to row,
There are several canoe events to
fill in the time between the rowing.
There will be prises given to the winners ot these events, lt there are
enough entries. These events are open
to all, and not, as some have thought,
restricted to members ot the Rowing
A toa-dance will be held ln the clubhouse after the races. This Is being
put on by Misses Dorothy Kennedy.
Connie McTavlsh, Ruth Teeple and
Dorothy Helmer, The prises for tbe
canoe events will be given out at that
time, and the coxswain's megaphone,
which was used in the Vancouver
race last year, and the Washington
race last week will be raffled off. This
will make a valuable souvenir.
The Student Press Is Still Free
During the lost week, tho appointment of Editor-in-Chief of the
Publications Board for the session 1927 • 28, has been delayed owing to
a disagreement between the Students' Council and the Board. That
disagreement has now been cleared up, and the Publications Board has
won its point, namely that the retiring Editor-in-Chief shall recommend his successor and the Counoil, accepting that recommendation,
shall formally appoint the new officer.
The controversy resolved itself into a test ease, with the Counoil
clearly trying to take complete control of the paper, first, by appointing the editor and second, by checking his published opinions, by
the threat of summary dismissal from office. We are pleased to
say that the student body, as a result of the stand of the Publications Board, is assured of a free student press, of which the editor
is responsible only to the Alma Mater Society. We have a few
remarks to make.
At its meeting held on the sixteenth of this month the Council
chose to disregard the recommendation of the retiring editor, and took
the power of appointing the incoming editor entirely into its own hands.
The retiring Board felt that Council, in the nature of things, was in
no position to assume that responsibility, while the Council, knowing
nothing of the specialized work of the Publications Board, knowing
nothing of the respective merits of the possible candidates to undertake that work, and serving no ends, in this case, other than its own,
still considered itself qualified to say who shall, or shall not, carry on
the duties of the Board. A pretty tale could be told of the manner in
which Council, making no effort to judge tho ability of the candidates, arrived at a majority vote to turn down the Board's choice
for the office; we could tell how the personal prejudices of Council
members against the man who was the Board's choice influenced
Council's vote to reject the recommendation; wo could tell how the
Board's choice was penalized because, as an official of a campus
organization, he took an inquiring and intelligent interest in the
finances of that organisation. But it is sufficiently illuminating
to say that personal prejudice against the Board's choice played,
by the members' own admission, a very considerable part in that
vote. We will not digress here to discuss the ethics of the stand
taken by Counoil; we will say nothing to suggest that the members of Council (appointed by the students as an executive, not
a governing body) have been at fault in permitting, in this
instance personal prejudice, rather than reasoned opinion, to order
its administration of student business; not* will we say anything, at
this point, concerning a Council which regards itself as a final court of
appeal and in so doing, cannot but disregard the principle of student
self-government in which the assembled student body alone constitutes
the final count. It is sufficient at this point to aay that no member of
the Publications Board waa prepared to accept an appointment by
Counoil to the editorial desk, so long aa the Board did not endorse that
appointment; they were, in fact, all eager to refuse it, knowing
very well just what valuo was attached to it.
An interesting position now confronted the Counoil. Having
acted with too high a hand, it found its reach had exceeded its
grasp and since none of the Publications Board would play Council's
game, Counoil found it could not play alone. Having taken upon
Itself the responsibility of naming the incoming Editor, the Oounoil
found itself unable to discharge that responsibility.
At the Council meeting last Wednesday the matter was again
brought up by the Publications Board and, after some persuasion,

Debaters Match
Wits on March 29
On Tusday evening, March 29th, in
the University Auditorium, tbe last
Inter-Collegiate Debate of this year
will be held. The University of Southern California is sending a carefully
selected debate pair to Vancouver to
meet U.B.C.'s debaters. The subject
is one that lends itself to fluid dlsous-
slon and verbal controversy, "Resolved that foreign nations should immediately relinquish all control In
China except that usually exercised
by consulate obligations."
California Team
Tbe men on tho California team
have been carefully chosen and specially coached. They will uphold the
negative of the resolution. William
B. Henley, the leader, is a Junior honor student and In his three years ot
forensic experience, he has lost but a
single contest In 24.
Tbe other member of the squad is
Arthur Syvertson who has covered
himself with gore and glory in debating circles. In 1928 he won a prise
ot $1,600 for an oration upon the Constitution of the United States. Since
that time he has won cups and medals,
many and varied and laat year walked
away with the honors In the League
of Nations Contest in California.
U. B. C. Team
This team consists ot J. R. O'Hagan
and Lionel Lalng. For eaoh it is their
flrst year at Point Orey and their flrst
intercollegiate debate.
Mr. Max Wright will be ln the chair
and the Musical Society will provide
entertainment in the intervals.
Science Men Sat Out
Win Over Arts '29
Playing bang up baseball for so early in the season Science disposed of
Arts '29 in the first game ot the Inter-
faculty baseball 9—2. There were two
main reasons for the downfall of Arts
'29, the heavy hitting of the Science
crow and the pitching of Rhodes. The
latter went seven Innings and only allowed two hits. He was well supported by an infield that promises to
be second to none at the Varsity. The
antics of some of the Arts' men trying
to connect with the ball added a touch
of humour to the game. Both teems
provided some good baseball in the
field, very few errors being chalked

and the Frosh, the winner to play the

Oouncil retreated from Its untenable position and yielded a
Which it could" hot sustain.   It now Admitted the right,
WO than implied in the Publications Board Constitution, and
coneeded ln cold reason, of the retiring Editor-in-Chief to
lend his successor with reasonable assurance that the Counoil
attach some weight to his opinion, rather than oyer rule it for
jg heat known only to Council.   This point established, the
lal recommendation of the retiring Editor-in-Chief waa again
tted to Council, and formally accepted by that body.    In go
the Council admitted the error of its original position; and
ed the justice of the Board's stand.   At the same time, the
_„ 's delay in getting the Council to realize its mistake seriously
footed the situation, and the original recommendation of the Board
?ot to go more than formally into effect
he fact that student elections intervened between the two Coun-
meetinfts has a bearing on the situation.  Since the first meeting of
11, the person concerned in out original recommendation has been
to a Council position.  The week required by Council to learn
tA.B.C.'e, so to speak, has seen the Publications Board lose a member
action of the electoral body. This member, now holding two
as A positions, had the liberty of choosing between them, and
l**eeigned, for his own good and sufficient reasons, from the editorship of this paper.   We then took pleasure in recommending the
full confidence of a Board, which united within itself, recognizes
her complete ability, and assures her of its whole-hearted support.
One lesson is learned. The Students' Council, which has suffi-
eienli trouble already in conducting student elections and attending
to its own business, would be well advised to look after its own
knitting and pick up its own dropped stitches, without indulging
itself in uncalled-for interference with a regularly functioning
student organization, the Publications Board.
The point won by the Board assures to the student body the ad-
Vantages of a free medium of expression for student opinion from all
sources on the campus. It further assures to the students their right
to govern themselves; for the Editor-in-Chief is responsible, as he has
always been,,to the assembled student body, for whatever opinions he
publishes—and, if arraigned, he stands trial before no other jury.
In conclusion, the present student body owes a debt of gratitude
to the Editor-in-Chief elect, whose action of public resignation from
the original appointment of Council, ha.s played no small part in the
re-establishment, in this connection, of the true principle of student
With this entry in the log, we come off watch, the wheel at rest
and the ship riding at anchor in the stream. The voyage has passed
for ua pleasantly enough and we leave with regrets, thanking our
friends for their help, and all others for their presence. To the new
commander and her crew we leave, in our opinion, a stout ship; and
in wishing them good luek, express our full confidence in them. If
through the coming voyage they care to use it, we leave inscribed upon
the wheel the principle which haa guided us whenever the stars were
gat and the compass of popular support had failed, "If you have
Opinions, print them; it is not only your right, it is your duty."

Arts '28 has again won the Interclass debate offered annually to the
women students. Due to the victory
of Beth Carter and Marlon Swanson
over Arts '27, the junior team should
have met Arta '29 for the finale. But
the sophomores could not find a team
to oppose Jean Tolmie and Alice
Weaver, Arts '28's representatives.

Students' Council
Holds Combined
On Wednesday, March 23rd. there
was a combined meeting of the Students' Council. The present members
as well as the newly-elected members
attended; for the old Counoil wished
to accustom the next Council to the
forms of procedure, and to Inform
them ot a few important questions
which would face them in the autumn.
The Council requests thhe students
not to loiter around, or tamper with
automobiles on the parking grounds.
Complaints have heen received that
several oars have been damaged, and
therefore tbe Council desires gently
to remind the students that they
are honor-bound to comport themselves respectably.
On the motion of Mr. Brown, the
Council accepted the resignation of
Miss Tolmie. Mr. Morrison, representing the Publications Board then
placed before the Council the choice
of the Board, James Sinclair. Acting
on this, a motion was made hy Mr.
Phillips that James Sinclair be appointed Edttor-in-Chlef ot the Ubys
sey.   This carried by 4 votes to 2.
Mr. Sinclair, who was present at
the meeting, resigned lu favor of Miss
Tolmie, since he could not hold two
A offices. He must either resign from
his seat on the Council, or resign
rrom the editorship, and he chose
to relinquish the latter. His resignation was accepted.
Mr. Morrison then recommended
Miss Tolmie as the choice of the
Board. After some discussion tbe
Council moved that Miss Tolmie be
appointed Editor-in-Chief of tbe Ubyssey.
Miss Gilley moved that tbe eleotion
results of March 22nd be ratified. The
motion carried.
lt was moved by Mr. Wright, and
seconded by Mr. McWilliams, that the
application of the Menorah Society
be not granted because it was a sectarian association. The motion was
carried, Mr. Brown dissenting.
Tbe Council Is considering one or
two schemes for building a Gymnasium. Plans, however, are only tentative and it will be the work of the
incoming Council to examine into the
The students attending during the
summer session have signified their
willingness to contribute towards a
gymnasium should one be built.
Dalhousle University Is sending a
Rugby team here next Christmas, and
desired to know from the Council
whether or not a Debating team might
also accompany the players. The
letter was referred to the National
Federation ot Universities.
The letter Award Committee submitted its report which calls for tbe
expending of $415. Mr. Brown moved
that the report be accepted. Motion
Mr. Butler moved that if suitable
guarantees are provided, $75 should
be advanced to send a relay team to
Seattle In order to participate In the
Wa.shltiKtnn Relay Carnival. Motion
was carried.
The question was brought up aa to
whether or not the Debates Manager
should receive recognition by having
a pin awarded him. The Council decided not to favor rewards to executives.

Bdltor of Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We wish to voice our criticism of
the way elections were conducted on
March 16th, and on March 22nd. Although we regret, the fact that Mr. X.
took the aotlon he did, we think that
at least the means he used justified
the end attained, which was to expose
the system of voting. We think, to
begin with that those in charge of the
booth on these two occasions must
have been very lax ln handling the
ballots, or how could Mr. X. have
secured forty or fifty? Furthermore,
bow any one could, unobserved, slip
into the boxes so many forms at once,
is to us an enigma. We are compelled
to believe that tbe Returning Officers
are guilty of culpable negligence.
This is not all.    Ihe weapon by
which Democracy is assured of safety
has been allowed "to rust unburnished
not  to  shine  ln  use."    That which
obviates coercion and corruption in
ordinary political life, the secret ballot, has  been  Improperly used  here,
where  of all  places,   common  sense
should prevail.   When we marked our
ballots all the students around us saw
for whom we voted!    P'lsewhero such

"Farfcwell, our golden dream is ended!"
At gist, after a year of work and
play, sjiooesses and failures, real Jokes
and Aisles, we lay aside our cap and
bells, and can look baok with relief
not utmixed with regret that it is
"Muck-a-Muck" has ended—at least
for a few montbs, Gargle McHooch,

tures. "Not" he shouted. "It Is not!"
"Your honor!" exclaimed Bert Bailey
counsel for the defense in his best pro-
fraternal tones. "This is the crux of
ihe situation. If I prove that the defendant does not own the garter, tho
prosecution,,Case la-er-all set!"
An eager bflrtot excited expectation rose from the spectators. This
was even more exciting than the eaae,
of the Forty-four Plugged Ballots.
"Your honor," began the defending
lawyer, "Ous Hardy Is a true collegian,
as proved on countless occasions, He
Out colleglates any collegiate ever
seen in the movies. Am I not right T"
A howl of assent burst from every
student present.
"Well, then," continued the counsel,
"who In the world has ever heard of
a real collegian ever wearing garters?"
"The Hellusay!" oxolalmod the
Judge, amid frantic cheers." You are
"Gentlemen ot the Jury," said the
lawyer In stern measured tones, "I
can bring countless witnesses to prove
that Hardy has never worn a pair of
garters for four years. As affidavits
Are the fashion la this court, I can
produce as many as you want to that
effect. The whole thing Is a frame-
The Judge hammered frantically on
his bench. "Order! Order!" he ex-
manded. "This ain't an election meeting! ... . I will leave the case with
the Jury."
A minute more and the foreman of
the Jury rose to his feet. "Not guilty,"
he said quietly.
Skyrockets, shouts and howls of Joy
burst from the struggling mass of
students who fought to carry Hardy
In triumph from the court. For a
second he relaized the glory of a McKechnie cup star after the same.
"Silence!" It was Nick Wagoner
who shouted. The detective was
standing on a chair and gesticulating
wildly like a yell king with St. Vitus
dance, doing the Black Bottom.
The struggling crowd stopped In
amazement. "There has been a frame-
up", shouted the detective. "Some
one Is guilty! who accused Jasper
Prout?" "Jane Stone!" shrieked an
"Well, where are they?" yelled Wagoner. "Thoy may be vote pluggers as
well.   Get them."
Ous Hardy, after a frantic struggle,
broke from his admirers. He had
seen Jasper Prout slinking out of the
door, so furtively, as a freshman
splashing ink over the library wall.
Without hesitating a moment the
ex-defendant raced after the vanishing
figure like a student running for office.
Too late! Hardy saw the notorious
Ford of the egg-stealer disappear In
a cloud of dust.
For a minute Ous Hardy paused
and glanced around wildly. There, on
the side of the road was the Science
"automobile," complete with red barn
lantern and ribald signs. One minute
now and Hardy was racing along
Tenth Avenue after the fast retreating Ford.
Ton miles—twenty miles — thirty
miles — forty miles—crep the pointer of the dilapidated speedometer,
"Forty-five miles—fifty miles." Hardy
had the throttle full open and the
accelerator pressed hard down. The
old oar had reached the limit of its
ability.   It was running its last race.
Gus Tardy gripped the steering
wheel with a resolute grasp, He was
gaining on his prey. Only twenty feet
separated them—ten feet—five.

two thousand words of alleged fiumor-
ous matter twice weekly. At times it
was t terrible strain, at times tbe
page fell attainably flat, but the fun
we got out of 'Yi tss worth the
trouble. ■--<•
At least we were original. WO avoided plagiarism, borrowed Jokes aad rehashed matter. We tried, with varied success to make the page deeent,
and to out out too frequent references to "gin," "petting,** "necking,"
and other vulgarities, such as too
often appear in certain "college" mag-
asines. At least we can console ourselves with the fact that the "Ubyssey" is perhaps the only college paper
on this continent that can, and did,
produce a whole page of absolutely
original matter twice a week.
We have been personal at tlmea.
We bave aimed Jokes at thlcga we
had no business to Jest about. At
times we may have approached profanity. If we have offended anyone,
we are truly sorry. We were never
bitter—only Jocular—and we sincerely
hope that all our readers took our
efforts in the spirit In which they
wore given.
In conclusion, the Feature Editor
wishes to thank his staff for their cooperation throughout the year, namely: Pat Keeling, Gus Madeley and
Rod Pllkington.

One of tbe most important decisions
ln athletics Which the students will be
called upon to make this year comes
up Tuesday wbei It will be decided
whether , or not Canadian Rugby
should be a minor sport Upon careful consideration ot this matter we
are ot the opinion that the Canadian
Rugby Club should receive this standing, j
The student policy of making letter
awards as hard to get as possible Is,
on the whole, a commendable one;
and It implies that awards ahould be
Justly distributed.) It is therefore Just
as much a part of this policy to raise
a sport to a standiag which it deserves as it is to refuse such recognition to a sport which Is not entitled to
it. When all the tacts coaneoted with
the Canadian Rugby Question are taken Into consideration, there Is no
doubt that tbe sport deserves more
than minor standing.
To begin with, the Intermediate
team which last week captured the
city championship trom the Meralomas will receive no letter whatever
as long as Canadian Rugby is only a
sub-minor sport, f his obviously is unjust. This toam, the winners of a
trophy, is surely entitled to the same
letter award as the third teams of the
Basketball, Boecett and English Rugby

The most reasonable and jraotical
plan for the solution of the present
difficulties', caused by the jack of
gymnasium, playing Held and iresslng

Granger. He IS appealing to ihe Student Body to vote its caution money
to the completion of the athletb fields,
etc. As students all know t> their
Borrow, the University at present
looks a gymnasium, a compleu athletic field, a cinder traok, a dressing
room and a halt for a social esntre.
Through the Oovernment, the people
of this young province have giten the
atudenta several million dollam ln a
University that contains, amoni other
things, the finest library bulMIng in
Canada, one of the best-eojalpped
stages on the eoaat, and a flrst class
science building. Owing to lick of
funds, however, no provision whatever was made toward the ptyeloal
well-being of the students, whiob is,
of the utmost Importance to % well
rounded education.
Students admire the pioneers ot this
province who sacrificed most of the
pleasures of life in developing this
country, on the pth«* hand they ere

donated ln the paat by the students,
to be invested in a playing field. With
this sum, u fullslsed Rugby field, a
quajter-mlle track, with a hundred-
yard straightaway, three main drains
—running, not only the entire iMusth
of tbo field, but 26 yards beyond the
end—and a drainage canal, have been
made possible. In Order, however,
to obtain full value tor this-sum, It
Is imperative that a final drive he
made toward the completion of this
Mr. Granger has made a careful Investigation of the question and considers that the following plans would
meet the case. Tbe plans to date
include the further draining ot the
field, the draining and finishing Of the
cinder track and the erection of a
large dressing room at the field. Until this work is completed, tbe English and Canadian rugby champions,
track men and baseball players will
be compelled to work out under the
most unfavorable conditions. These
men deserve a chance!
Owing to the clay composition of
the soil, the present drains are gradually being filled up, with the result
that tlie field and track are developing Into a mire. Aa matters now
stand the surface Is covered with
water after every rain.
What la needed Is a new dressing
room. It has been suggested that
this should be a two story frame
structure,  containing   well-ventilated,

One of the most Important decisions
in athletics which tbe students will be
called upon to make this year comes
up Tuesday when it will be decided
whether or not Canadian Rugby
should be a minor sport. , Upon careful consideration of this matter we
are of the opinion that the Canadian
Hugby Club should receive this standing.
The student policy of making letter
awards as hard to get as possible Is,
on tho whole, a commendable one;
and it Implies that awards should bo
justly distributed.. It is therefore lust
as much a part of this policy to raise
a sport to a standing which it do-
sorves as it Is to refuse such recognition to a sport which is not entitled to
it. When all the facts connoctod with
tho Canadian Rugby question are taken Into consideration, there, is no
doubt that tho sport deserves more
than minor standing.
To begin with, the Intermediate
team which last weok captured the
city championship from the Meralomas will receive no letter whatever
as long as Canadian Rugby is only a
sub-minor sport. This obviously is unjust. This team, the winners of a
trophy, is surely entitled to tho same
letter award as the third teams of the
Basketball, Soccer and English Rugby
Clubs. In the opinion of this editor,
this fact alone is sufficient reason to
raise the Canadian Rugby Club ono
stop higher in the letter system, especially since the club always has had,
and probably always will have, more
than one team representing Varsity.
We do not want to spend too much
space on this question in our last Issue, but we must put in a word for the
fine spirit which gets these Canadian
teams out to practice every morning
before lecturos. This willingness to
work hard merits the encouragement
ot raising the club to the standing ot
a minor sport. In our opinion the men
students can make no mistake in making Canadian Rugby a minor sport.

Coach Granger Asks Students
to Donate Caution Money
The most reasonable and practical
plan for the solution ot the present
dimcultieB, caused by the lack of
gymnasium, playing field and dressing
room has boen made by Coach Robert
Granger. He is appealing to the Student Body to vote its caution money
to tlie completion of tho athletic fields,
etc. As studonts all know to their
sorrow, the University at present
lacks a gymnasium, a eompleto athletic field, a clndor track, a dressing
room and a hall for a social centre.
Through tho Qovornmont, tho people
of this young province havo glvon tho
students soveral million dollars In a
University that contains, among other
things, tho finest library building ln
Canada, ono of the best-equipped
stagns on tho coast, aud a first class
science building. Owing to lack of
funds, howovor, no provision whatever was mudo toward the physical
woll-belng of tlie students, which is,
of tho utmost importance to a well
rounded education.
Students admire the pioneers of this
province who sacrificed most of the
pleasures of life in developing this
country. On the other hand thoy are
apt to forget that they are the pioneers of this growing University, and
thnt it is their'privilege and duty to
contribute a share toward the development of the groat university of the
As matters now stand, the students
have been left entirely to their own
resources, as far as athletics go. Is
it not fit and proper that they should
stand on their own feet, and complete
what has been bo well begun? A
great example to the people of Vancouver, who have been watching all
along, can be set, and students should
show themselves to be doers and not
Nearly $10,000 has been generously
donated in the past by the students,
to be invested in a playing field. With
this sum, a full-sized Rugby field, a
quarter-mile track, with a hundred-
yard straightaway, three main drains
—running, not only the entire length
of the field, but 25 yards beyond the
end—and a drainage canal, havo been
mnde possible. In order, however,
to obtain full value for this sum, it
is imperative that a final drive be
made toward tho completion ot this
Mr. Granger has made a careful Investigation of the question and considers that tho following plans would
meet the case. The plans to date
include the further draining of the
field, the draining and finishing of the
cinder track and the erection of a
large dressing room at the field. Until this work is completed, the English and Canadian rugby champions,
track men and baseball players will
be compelled to work out under the
most unfavorable conditions. These
men deserve a chance!
Owing to the clay composition ot
the soil, tlie present ilraios are gradually being filled up, with the result
that the field and track are developing Into a mire, Aa mattero now
stand tho surface la covered with
water after every rain.
What Is needed Is a new dressing
room. It has been suggested that
this should be a two story frame
structure, containing   well-vftntllated,
built-in lockers, and hot showers on'
the  lower   floor,   and   a basketball
court on the upper story.        r •     ,
This would not only save the sto-
dents the necessity of hiring a ball
for practices, but would also save
them many hours ot time spent in
travelling eight miles to a gym. The
basketball floor could also be used as
a dance hall, and would save tbe
students at least $40 in ball hire for
every student function.
This plan for a dressing-room and
bnskotball court would la no way interfere with tho present plans for a
gym. The women as well as tbe men
have to bo considered in any plans
for a gym. The dressing room basket*
ball floor could be used by tbe men
whon the women are not using,tbe
regular gym, and vlee versa. If tbe >
gym were decorated and arranged for
social functions, tbe athletes would
still be able to carry on ln the smaltl,
er building. The cost of upkeep of
the dressing room building would be
very small. ., !,
The proposed dressing-room, basketi
ball building, the playing field and tbe
track could be completed this sum*,!
mer if the finances are forthcoming
This would enable an extensive ath-
letlc program to be started In the
fall. '■'•'*■.   * •.■■■■AAr1
If the students start a campaign in
the fall for the regular gym, the business men of the city will be convinced that the students have done all,
they possibly can to get their much-
needed facilities, and the student body
can show them that lt Is wholeheartedly behind the athletic activities of
the U. B. C. '■>■.'■•■>*;•;.
Every student should be willing to
give his caution money, because the
plan Is not to truln a few super-athletes but to give every student an opportunity for physical development
At present accommodation prevents
many students from partaking in athletics. Athletics and sport, lt made
accessible to every student, would by
the very spirit of sportsmanship and
team work provide Just what is lacking to raise the morale and "college ,
spirit" of the U. B. C. students.
Visitors and new students get some-,
thing of a shock when flrst seeing the
desolate wastes that constitute the
playing fields, the tumble-down shack
misnamed in "dressing room", and the
void that occupies the site ot the gmy,'
One even sh'udders to contemplate.'

Imagine the pride of the future fresh-.

It should be remembered that the
money is being put not Into grounds
and buildings only, but into an ideal.
