Students Urged
To Get Help In
Picking Careers
Mr. F. C. Boyes Gave First of
Vocational Guidance Lectures on Wednesday
"In our very complex world, there
are innumerable occupations, which
makes guidance a necessity," declared
Mr. F. C. Boyes, superintendent of
the Boys' Industrial School at Esson-
dale, at the opening address of the
series of vocational guidance lectures
to be given this year at U.B.C. This
very entertaining speaker was introduced by Dr. W. N. Sage, and received with much enthusiasm at the
well attended meeting on Wednesday
In deciding upon a vocation, the
question "to whom shall we go for
yuidance," is uppermost in many
peoples' minds. The fortune-teller
perhaps receives most inquirers and
the psychiatrist the least, "but that
is probably because there is no dictionary at home," the speaker added
Also, in choosing a vocation, "it is
important," said Mr. Boyes, "that a
person know his own mental ability.
With so many club activities thriving
on the U.B.C. campus each student
should have ample opportunity to
discover what he is best adapted for."
"Everyone needs and must have, a
certain amount of social approval,"
added Mr. Boyes, "and we get it by
being a worth while person with a
worth while job. By being expert in
our work, and not just advertising
ourselves." Furthermore, Mr. Boyes
stressed the fact that students, while
at the University, should not be entirely wrapped up in academic affairs
but should keep up connections with
various interests in the city.
It is the opinion of the speaker that
the two main things required of any
■persons' vocation are, the assurance
that sooner or later that person will
be able to stand on his own feet financially, and secondly, a simple
amount of happiness.
Mr. Boyes, himself a graduate of
U.B.C. concluded his address with a
gratifying remark, "When puzzled, go
to leaders. The staff of U.B.C. has
marvellous men to whom to take
your problems. They are anxious to
help, and are equipped to help."

Pield Day on Tuesday at the University Farm was the Women's Ploughing Contest, won by Pamela Ruckle.
"The three co-eds who entered the
contest gave on extraordinary performance," stated Prof. J. C. Berry
of the department of animal husbandry, "and Pamela Ruckle ploughed a
remarkably neat, straight furrow."
The Field Day was arranged by last
year's graduates, and the" various
events were well contested, according
to the judges.
At the banquet in the evening graduates were awarded prizes won during
the day. Pres. L. S. Klinck welcomed
the students and expressed regret
that he had been unable to display
his prowess as a ploughman.
Dr. B. Eagles, head of the department of dairying, gave a travel talk
covering the southern United States,
Freshmen put on an amusing skit,
and Deal. F. T.I. Clement closed the
program with an nddress on the activities of some Aggie graduates during the last few years.

"We hope;" said Alan Morley, president of the Arts Men Undergraduates' Society, to a Ubyssey reporter
on Thursday, "that the Arts-Aggie
Ball this year will be a new and revolutionary departure in the conduct of
University activities.
"The organization has been deliberately arranged with a view to
instituting co-operation between
Faculties, in the
place of the usual
opposition, a project which has
long been a
dream of mine,
and which I hope
will now be realized in increasing measure in other directions.
"The Arts-Aggie Ball seemed to be
a good starting point, as two Faculties are already involved. We have
added representatives of the Science-
men, the Co-Eds, the Commercemen
and the Teacher Training Class.
"Contrary to reports published in
a down-town paper, the Arts-Aggie
will not be held in the Embassy, nor
will it be on October 31, nor have we
put a Scienceman on our committee
in order to induce other Sciencemen
to attend.
"I have too much respect for the
intelligence of that Faculty to believe
they will spend good money in response to such an obvious piece of
flattery as the article you mention
insinuates we are indulging in.
"We will be only too glad to have
them participate in the entertainments we are preparing for that affair, but our appeal to them, as to
all other students, is based on tho
entertainment value we offer. It will
be sufficient for the purpose, and the
only honest method of selling tickets."
Mr. Morley explained that Tel Potter, head of the Sciencemen, has been
invited to join the committee for three

date of the Ball by altering that of a

Senate Approves Plan
For Extended Noon Hour
Bernard Brynelsen
President of thc Alma Mater Society, who had one of his election
platform planks securely nailed into
place by Senate last night when that
august body approved the Students'
Council plan for increased noon recess  periods.
Hour and Half Period to go into Effect on
Monday; on Trial for This Session
New Senate Members Chosen; Regulations
Changed for Students Seeking M.A.
Commencing on October 21, noon recess on the University
campus will be increased from one hour to an hour and a half.
The decision to increase the recess was made by Senate
at its regular meeting Wednesday night, following approval of
the scheme by faculty committee on student affairs, and by the
joint meetings of members of all faculties on the campus.
The scheme was first proposed by the student body of the
University at an Alma Mater meeting last spring, when the
matter was discussed at considerable length, and a decision was
reached by the students favouring the increase, since it was
expected to prove of inestimable value in the development and
increased in extra-curricular activities on the campus, both athletic and non-athletic.
Council Has Worked Hard For Scheme
Council Revises
Alumni Scheme
Persistent rumours that conflicting
events on the University campus
would compel cancellation of at least
one section of the proposed Alumni
Day program were confirmed today
when Bernard Brynelsen, president of
the Alma Mater Society, announced
that plans for Alumni Day, as such,
would have to be laid aside.
Main drawback to the success of
the Alumni Day program, according
to Brynelsen, was the fact that a
Vancouver Institute lecture had already been scheduled for the evening
of November 9 in the Auditorium. It
is understood that the expected audience will be too large to be accommodated in a lecture room as in previous years.
Officials of the Vancouver Institute
refused to hold their lecture in the
gymnasium a3 suggested by Students'
Council, Brynulsen declared Thursday
However, two of the scheduled
events on the Alumni Day program
will still be held. The Varsity-Occas-
ionals English Rugby game on the
Stadium field in the afternoon will
be followed by a tea-dance in the
campus gymnasium.
Brynelsen said Thursday that he
expected large crowds to attend  the

Student Views On
Longer Noon Hour
Bern Brynelsen, Pres. A.M.S.
"I cm very pleased to hear that
Senate has approved the scheme.
Students' Council has worked hard
to get the proposal accepted, and
naturally, as president, I feel that
Senate ratification completes a job
well done."
R. J. Killam, Junior Member
"It looks like a good idea, but I'm
afraid it's going to mean a lot of
extra work for the junior member
in the allocation of rooms for extracurricular activities at noon."
Jay Gould, Pres. L.S.E.:
"This noon-hour extension business is just grand. I'm sure the
scheme will prove successful, and
University authorities will not find
it necessary to cut the recess again
after it has had a year's trial."
Ivor Moe, Vanity Coach:
"Although in no position to make
any official statement, I might say
that the extra period for noon will
have practically no effect on any
of the major teams on the campus.
More and better material might be
uncovered by the program of intra-mural athletics during the extended noon. The American football team will continue practicing
in the mornings as usual. Varsity
sport on the whole will neither
benefit or receive any harm as far
as I can see."
Ardie Beaumont, Pres. W.U.S.:
"The extended noon-hour will facilitate friendly intercourse between
the women students. At the W.U.S,
meetings there will be more opportunity for discussion."
Hugh Palmer, Pres. Players' Club:
"Players' Club welcomes the added time in both their Play reading
and Voice Culture Groups.
Vera Rodcllffe, Pros. Musical Society:
"The Musical Society feels the
extra time will result in improved
recitals. It will be excellent too for
the ensemble rehearsals for we shall
be able to accomplish more work.
Molly Locke, Pres. W.A.A.:
"Having an hour and a half at
noon is open to much abuse but for
those that are going to make use
of it, it Is a fine idea. The women
students are going to have an opportunity to take part in inter-class
basketball and badminton games."
Harry Pearson, Capt. Eng. Rugby team
"I don't think the noon-hour is
going to effect the purpose for
which it is intended. From the
rugby point of view, 15 minutes for
lunch and 30 minutes for changing
both ways leaves too little time to
be of much value. Anyway, if
rugby has one field and soccer has
the other, where are the interclass
Students' Council, under President
Bernard Brynelsen, made plans for
submission of the scheme to University authorities, and made strenuous
efforts to have the proposal accepted
by members of faculty before the
scheme was finally sent for approval
of Senate at its regular meeting on
October 16.
The move is of a temporary nature
only, according to Registrar Stanley
Mathews, who made the formal announcement of Senate approval on
Wednesday evening.
"Senate is willing to give the increased noon recess a fair trial on the
campus, because the students asked
that the change be made. Whether
or not it will be successful is yet to
be seen. However, it will be a relatively simple matter to drop back into
the old routine after a year, providing the proposal does not prove to be
Two new members of Senate took
their seats at the Wednesday meeting for the first time. Archdeacon F.
C. C. Heathcote represented the Ang
lican Theological College, replacing as
College representative the late Principal W. H. Vance, M.A., D.D. The
College seat has been vacant since
Principal Vance's death some months
Prof. A. H. Finlay of the department
of civil engineering in the faculty of
Applied Science, took his place as
temporary representative of his faculty. The appointment was made necessary because Col. H. F. G. Letson of
the department of mechanical engineering, has been granted leave of absence from the University for a period
of one year.
A recommendation submitted to the
meeting from the faculty oi Arts and
Science was adopted by Senate during
the Wednesday night session. The recommendation, approved with little
discussion, suggested that students in
the faculty of Arts and Science who
have not more than 6 units of undergraduate work to complete should be
allowed to take courses leading to graduate degrees.
65 Degrees To
Be Granted At
Fall Ceremony
Senate Approves 8 Diplomat
For Fall Congregation
Coleman Speaker
Senate Election In April Next Year
Such a move has previously been
made in the faculty of agriculture,
Registrar Mathews explained last
night, but it is not believed possible
to introduce such a regulation in the
applied science faculty because up to
the present time students in that faculty haVe been compelled to stick
strictly to the "complete year" system.
However, many teachers throughout
the province have been looking forward to the change with considerable
interest, owing to the fact that in recent years, many students have graduated from High School with only
partial standing in Senior Matriculation. Many of these students have
reached their final year at the University with a few units of undergraduate work to be completed.
The Senate motion Wednesday night
will allow the students to proceed toward their Master's degrees before
having actually received their Bache
lor's degee at the conclusion of four
years University training.
Senate also determined the date for
the next election of members of Senate, setting voting day on Thursday,
April 2,1936. The elections take place
every three years, and the voters' list
list will Include almost 4,100 names,
compared with 3,600 names In 1933
when the last election was held.
Eligible to vote are all members of
University convocation—those graduates of other Universities admitted to
convocation shortly after the founding of the University in 1912, and all
graduates of the University since its
institution twenty years ago.
Finally, authorization was given to
the recently appointed Senate commit-
te under the chairmanship of Sherwood Lett, a graduate of the University, to co-operate with the Vancouver
Jubilee Society in planning a celebration for the 21st anniversary of the
founding of the University.

l A number of changes in scholarship and bursary winners was announced by the University Senate
following its regular meeting on Wednesday night. Junior Matriculation

Football Ballyhoo
At Pep Meet Today
One of the biggest pep meetings ever
presented at the university ia slated
for today, according to Pep Club Executives. Stan Patton and his Ambassadors will provide the music, playing the latest numbers.
As added attractions, the Club has
secured the Sherry Sisters, a popular
vocal trio, who will sing a few pieces;
and Cisco Berretoni, accordionist extraordinary.
Besides this, the American Football
Team will be there, and Coach Ivor
Moe will give a short talk.
Yells and songs will be practiced
for Saturday's game. "People should
know a few more yells than the 'skyrocket' and 'Kitsilano,'" say the yell
leaders. So the meeting program includes considerable time for yells.
The meeting is also for the basketball team, who open the hoop season
Saturday night at V.A.C. In the meantime, tickets are on sale for the American game at the Quad Box Office.
There will be an important
meeting of the Women's Undergraduate Society on Monday
noon in Arts 10Q to discuss the
proposed plan for a Fashion
Show at the Bay.

With lengthened noon hours now definitely
coming upon us, every student should consider
how he personally can benefit by the change.
It will be all too easy to use the time augmenting his after-lunch lounge, when the august processes of digestion enjoy an undisputed
The purpose behind the noon hour-and-a-
halves as everyone knows Is the encouragement of extra-academic activity among the students. Lectures, recitals, inter-class sports are
all figured to benefit through the new arrangement.
As things go at present, however, it will
have to be admitted that on any one typical
day, the majority of the students are not engaged, noon hour, in student activity—in other
words, most of the students most of the time
are idle.
If this new noon hour arrangement is to be
a real success, then, it seems to us that the cue
for action has arrived for all club executives
and sport managers. Students' Council, Faculty
and Senate have done their part. It is now the
turn of the managers and executives to act, to
enlarge their programs, to rise to the opportunities offered them.
Only through their initiative can the greatly
to be desired fillup in student activities be
given real impetus.
Alumni Day has had to be called off. The
plans for a bang-up week-end have had to be
dropped. The reason for dropping the plans,
according to Students' Council, is that the
Auditorium has already been granted to the
Vancouver Institute for a lecture on the evening of the day chosen for the graduate-undergraduate affair, Saturday, November 9th.
That is the clash. One can sympathize with
the Institute choosing not to vacate the Auditorium for their extraordinary meeting. The
expected attendance to hear Prof. F. H. Soward discuss "The International Situation" is
greater than can be comfortably accomodated
in a lecture room. And the gymnasium, suggested by Students' Council as a possible alternative, is far from satisfactory.
Yes, one can sympathize with the Institute,
but on the other hand, it must be remembered
that after all the students themselves are entitled to the use of a building which their annual fees help materially to keep in repair. It
is all very well to assist the Vancouver Institute
by providing it with a meeting place, but the
point to be remembered is that all arrangements for the Institute accommodation were
made in August, before the present Students'
Council was even organized for the winter season.
We suggest that in future, all student plans
be made before University facilities are provided for non-affiliated organizations, whether
or not they be closely connected with the University.
To-morrow another international fraternity
will be established on the campus when Alpha
Kappa Alpha is formally installed as the Zeta
Zeta Chapter of Psi Upsilon. We would like to
congratulate the local society on the success of
their petition, feeling that the advent of this
latest international is really another acceptance by another organization of the basic
soundness and high standards of this University.
The ever-alert editor of this snappy family
journal forwards me a letter yesterday which
was left in the pub office three weeks ago today, with a comment that it's probably a request for me to co-operate in keeping the campus clean of litter.
Nobody can say I'm not co-operating to
the fullest extent in that respect this year.
But it turns out to be something else, a
letter from Mr. G. B. Rlddebough of the Department of Classics on your campus, and I
don't know quite what to do about it.
He says, "Please don't blame Professor
Wood for 'prancing on Parnassus.' That was
my phrase. I read his English 13 essays for
him last year."
Now what do you make of that? Credit
where credit is due or taking one's medicine
as a gentleman?
If they like, I'll call the whole thing off
and take the credit myself, since it seemed to
me it was a Ungual gem.
And about the picture on top of this effusion. It was created and executed by John
Davidson (and how's your little Simian brother Mickey, John?) but the ever-alert editor
claims entire credit for the luxuriously hur-
suit chest. It seems to me last week's hair-
tonic had something to do with it.
Ken Beckett, tycoon of the book exchange
in the fall of '31 on your campus, was up in
East Kootenay last week orating for the Young
Liberals. His first request on arrival was for
a hat, please, and the story came out.
On his way up he had a few minutes in
New Westminster before catching a train, and
he went to the police offices there. He left
his hat in the waiting room while he conducted
his business in the inner office.
When he hurtled out to catch his train he
found someone had stolen his hat.
Ha ha on the New Westminster Police Department.
Another conspicuous grad last week was
Clare Donaldson who distinguished himself as
groom at a wedding ceremony. He was in
Kimberley, some years ago, when Teddy
Baines (Commerce '31 approx.) and Leitch
Paterson (Science, way back) were barnacling
freights from these parts to the coast.
Always helpful, Clare wired the police at
Kamloops that a couple of undesirable transients were riding freight No. So-and-So, and the
two boys were met by a policeman who put
them up for the night in the local jail.
Gus Madeley (you guess what year he was)
heard about it almost immediately, and without pause phoned the Province, who ran a social item next day to the effect that

"Are professors human?" was the
humorous topic of a student-faculty
debate at Wesley College, University
of Manitoba.
The affirmative of the 'iiiestion was
upheld by the students v/ho to the
surprise of everyone proved to the
audience that professors are human
after oil.
The prize argument of the evening
came from the affirmative side and
was based on a classic saying of
Pope's, "To err is human." And what
do professors do but "air" themselves
in the lecture room, and thus they
are human.

For the last few issues the University of Toronto "Varsity" has been
screaming with headlines urging students to participate in a straw vote
that they are undertaking.
The keynote of this campaign is
one of sincere appeal. Somehow it
makes one surge with admiration.
Here are a few excerpts from the
Varsity which well illustrates the
tense feeling:
"The charge of apathy on the part
of the University students to any serious question, together with "charges

The Saskatchewan Sheaf in a very
admirable editorial explains this legal disability placed on students. Following is an excerpt:
"Subsection 2 of Section 99 in chapter 50 of the 1934 Dominion Elections
Act states that the provisions for an
absentee vote 'shall apply only to persons whose regular occupation on
polling day is that of lumberman,
fisherman,* miner or sailor.'
"This definition effectively excludes
non-resident students, as well as a
great many teachers and persons in
other  occupations  which  take  them
from their home constituency."

the Auditorium of the University.
The speaker will be Professor H. F.
Angus, head of the Department of
Economics and Political Science at the
University. His topic is "The Search
for Plenty," a discussion of recent
efforts to improve the economic condition of the general mass of the people. The "End Poverty in California"
movement of last year, the Douglas
Plan, the Social Credit Movement,
which has swept through Alberta, triumphing in both the Provincial and
Federal elections, and other movements of the kind will be discussed.
The program for the Institute's autumn session, which covers its activities up to the Christmas vacation has
been printed, and copies can be obtained on application to the secretary, Dr. A. F. Barss, Department of
Horticulture, University of B. C. The
speakers include the Hon. G. M.
Weir, President Klinck, Dean Buchanan, Professor Soward, Col. W. W.
Foster, and Dr. W. Kaye Lambe. Each
of these lecturers can speak with authority on the subject he has selected, while the program is sufficiently
varied in character to assure audiences of differing tastes much of interest as well as information.
All Institute lectures are free. The
B. C. Electric provides ah adequate
bus service.
At Saturday evening's meeting the
chair will be taken by Mr. George E.
Winter, the Institute's President.

Ellensburg Here For Game Tomorrow
Ruggers Clash
With .411-Blacks
On North Shore
Teams to Meet Tomorrow Are
Considered Strongest in
Coach Dobbie and his tea-drinking
brutes face their first hard game of
the season. Tomorrow the lemon ball
experts, all eager and in first class
A. No. 1 condition, meet the North
Shore All-Blacks for the epic of the
season, the game of the century, and
feel very confident after their wet-
ball practice Wednesday they will put
the black men on the short end of
the score.
So far in th-» season, these devotees
of the English game have established
a fine record wh'ch they intend to
keep. They have won their first two
league games against Ex-Magee and
Ex-Britannia very handily, running
up a total of 60 points with only
three against them. In other words,
all their opponents have been able
to score against them ln an unconverted try.
Last year the Varsity and Black's
meets were conceded to be the best
English code games seen here for
years, end should prove to be of the
same calibre this year since neither
team seems to be weakened. Varsity
has lost Roxborough, but, due to his
policy of training men for different
positions, his place has been ably
filled. However, Saturday will show
whether or not this Is true. As a
matter of history, Varsity held North
Shore to a 3-3 draw in the game at
the hikers' home field, and defeated
them 8-C at Brockton Oval, winning
by the margin of a well-placed kick.
Bill Morris, the three-hundred
pounds (roughly) of forward, Is
back In play after a knee injury.
He brings a big push to the scrum,
height to the line-outs and a heavy
tackle to any ball-carrier. His experience lends a steadying influence
to the team, In all, a very valuable
Above is Coach Moe's probable starting line
for tomorrow's big grid clash with Ellensburg
Normal. It combines   speed with   plenty of
weight. Reading from left to right: McHugh,
end; Deptford, tackle; Boe, guard; Keillor, centre; Hodgson, guard; Preston, tackle, and Burnett, end.
Thunderbirds Have Strong
Squad For First Home Go
Athletic Park At 2:30 Saturday Varsity Will Play Its Second
Inter-collegiate American Football Game
Double-Header At V.A.C.
Opens Basketball Season
Varsity to Meet V.A.C. in Opener; Adanacs
and Province an Hour Later
There"ll be plenty of action tomorrow night at the V.A.C.
gymn, when the Senior Inter-City loop gets under way to the
accompaniment of the hysterical howling from the throats of
ardent basketball followers.
The first game, slated for 8:00 p.m., finds V.A.C. battling
the revamped Thunderbirds from our illustrious institution,
while an hour later Chuck Jones' Province team will meet New
Westminster Adanacs, coached by Jack Barber ie, pilot of last
year's Blue and Gold squad.
The North Shore field is square,
and ideal for end runs, and passing
attacks, an open game where speed
and staying power mean victory. Varsity has youth, enthusiasm, condition
and speed to burn plus a powerful
scrum to overcome any handicap of
playing conditions.
From the more distant fronts comes
news that the California trip is definitely off unless some kind, benevolent personage guarantees expenses.
However, Washington is forming an
English fifteen so a series may be
arranged with them if all goes well.
The scrum has been changed to accomodate the returned Morris in the
second row alongside Scienceman
Senkler. Maguire is in the third
row taking Pyle's place, with Pyle
in the front row replacing Housser
in that slot. Roberts of the three-
quarters line, is out with a broken
nose he received in practice. Stokvis
has been moved in from the wing
with Wilson replacing him.
Tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 at Athletic Park our American football club
will act as a collective host to some
visitors from an institution known as
Ellensburg Normal. To be perfect
hosts they should allow themselves to
be kicked, trampled on, and generally
beaten up, but they say they will not
allow this because of the scurvy way
they were treated when they were the
guests in Bellingham. Instead, they
intend to follow to the best of their
ability the example set by the Bellingham teochers.
In the opinion of Doc. Burke there
are more men turning out for football now than ever before, showing
there Is still a great deal of determination on the compus to produce
a winning football team.  Bob Twiss
and Russ Keillor have recently been
welcomed back to the fold.
The squad has been turning out in
force dally during the past several
weeks and has become much improved
in every phase of the game.   A new
lateral pass attack has been developed
to be tried out on Ellensburg.
\he windows
of tjour mind
After a chilling practice in the rain
on Wednesday afternoon, Coach Mpe
congratulated the players on their
ever-increasing display of snap and
enthusiasm. He warns us, however,
not to expect too much by giving out
the following statement, "Football is
an involved game necessitating intricate plays. The failure of a single
man to carry out his assignment
places the play in jeopardy. For this
reason it takes considerable time to
build a smooth-working offensive. Experience through games Is necessary
in the molding of a team. Defeat has
a good chance of overtaking a team
during the period of gaining experience." He adds, however, "I expect
the boys to be a much better team
against Ellensburg than they were
against Bellingham."
Two rumors which are floating
about the campus, and on which nothing definite can be had, are: that the
"Fresh Air" orchestra of last week's
pep meeting has been re-vamped into
a brass band and will be on hand at
at the game to play all our college
songs; and that the Frosh intend to
put on some kind of a stunt at half
time. It seems the only way to find
out is to attend the game.
Owing to the fact that a $300 guarantee has been put up, a large turnout is necessary. Besides that, It Is
up to the student body to show the
American visitors that the University of British Columbia Is not a
"one-horse cow-college!" Since the
grandstand at Athletic Park has a
roof, the weather will not serve as
a very good excuse. Student tickets
can be obtained from any football
player or at the Quad box-office for
Several of the men who have been
playing Junior Canadian football may
get their first chance in senior company in this game. The probable
starting line-up is as follows:
Ends-Warnkin snd McHugh; tackles
-*Young and Deptford; guards—Boe
and Hodgson; center—Vine; backs —
No. 1, Parkinson, No. 2, Paradis, No.
3, Gray, No. 4, Klrby-VAN HOUTEN.
Coach Bill Edwards of the V.A.C.
has a decidedly youthful squad
groomed for Saturday night's opener,
his only veterans being Doug McCrimmon, Hugh Grant, Bobby McDonald, all ex-Varsity Hoopers, and
Ross Helem, star forward of the 1934
Province Dominion Champions. Notable among the recruits is "Jeem"
Purves, elongated brother of "Jawn",
who has inherited the Purves' knack
of popping in baskets.
Not to be outdone by their athletically-minded rivals, the U.B.C.
basketeers have also adopted an
"Accent on Youth" policy, having
only four "voters"  on the team.
Ivor Moe, coach of Alma Mammy's
Basketball representatives, has ten
men picked for Saturday's encounter
with V.A.C, only one of whom has
had previous Senior A experience.
That person, none other than Captain "Joe" Pringle, will start at his
usual position at guard, while Bruce
Millar, Jack "Spud" Davis and
"Chawley" Hardwick will work
alongside of "Pring."
Alex "Luke" Lucas, who has shown
plenty of class in workouts, will
probably start at centre, and will
share the pivot lot with George McKee, one of the stars of last year's
Senior B team,
At present there's plenty of competition for forward berths on the
first string, with no less than five
trying for the two coveted positions,
Lloyd 'Twiddle* Detwiller, B1U 'Patty' Patmore, John Berry, Carmen
Ridland and Frank Turner are all
out to make the starting team.
The Collegians, who have been
practicing every day of this week
under the critical eye of Coach Moe,
are shaping up well for their initial
game of the season with V.A.C. this
Saturday, and are gunning for a win
to start them off on their quest of
another Mainland Championship. Senior Manager George Crosson has announced that the boys will be all
decked out in new uniforms, which
should add plenty of color to the
Melon-tossers' opening performance.—
Women Good
Says Montgomery
"This year the women's Senior
Basketball team is heading straight
for the British Columbia Championship," stated Coach Doc Montgomery
when interviewed by tho Ubyssey
yesterday. "It is much better than
last year's team end is really going
to do things in a big way but as a
winner does not play to empty halls
they need your full support."
The nucleus of the team, Beth Evans, Laura Nixon, Ena Clark, Margaret Ralph, and Trudy Spencer,
have already been chosen while ths
remaining members are yet to be
picked. As usual, there will be an
intermediate team entered into the
league and its future is also bright.
Both teams pre rapidly progressing
and will be in very good shape when
the season opens in about two weeks.

2nd Team
Meets Policemen
Strengthened morally by their decisive victory of last Saturday, and
materially by the addition of Stokvis
who regularly plays for the first
string, Varsity's Second Division English Rugby ream meets the Mounties
on Saturday at Douglas Park at 2:30,
confident of another win.
This week Shirl. Griffin, who regularly plays full-back, is assured of
some action, for he is being moved
up into the .scrum whilst Ellis will
move back into Griffin's old place.
With these exceptions the line-up,
which follows, will be the same as
that of last weak: Ellis, Walsh, Watson, Andrews, Smith, Linklater, S.
Griffin, J. Andrews, Lea, Hobson,
Martin, Leckie-Ewing, Colthurst,
Johnson, Cunningham  (spare).
Like The Rain
Probably greater enthusiasm was illustrated by the Rowing Club members than any other organization on
the campus when twenty-five or
thirty members turned out in the
pouring rain Wednesday afternoon;
this enthusiasm is well warranted
since the Varsity rowers have definitely taken steps to mako rowing a
major sport on the campus.
According to Alec Mcintosh, who is
the newly-elected crew-captain, arrangements are being made' for a
Blue and Gold invasion of the University of Oregon at the end of February.
Rowing All Winter
Mcintosh stated, "It is the intention of the club to keep rowing all
winter, something new for this University. Arrangements are being
made for an inter-faculty meet in
the spring and an entry in the annual Vancouver Rowing Club regatta.
In th? meantime the Thunderbirds
are turning out regularly under the
expert coaching of Professors Brand
and West, and Tom Brown of Oxford,
who have thc following men on their
senior roster: Wilson McDuffee, John
Logan, Art Coulter, Bill McLeish,
Frank Stevens, Bruce Robinson, Alec
Mcintosh, Stu Lane, Bill English, Pat
McMillan, John J. A. Wilson and Jack
West, all from last year.
