With four members of the original

Thursday's game should prove a big
drawing card among the students.

James Gibson and Harry Freeman, who are preparing to lower Alberta's
laurels in the coming debate at King Edward High School Auditorium, January 17. The problem: "Resolved that total disarmament Is essential for
world peace," will be thrashed out. At present Freeman and Gibson are
garnering information in the Library and from every other available source
In order to combat all Alberta's arguments. Their comrades In forensic ability,
Macdonald and Vance, are preparing to meet Saskatchewan orators in an
"away" debate on the same date.
The Musical Society has chosen for
its annual Spring production, the Musical Comedy. "In the Garden of the
Shah," a Romance of Persia In Three
Acts, by May Hewes Dodge, and John
Wilson Dodge, authors of "Miss Cher-

The three acts take place ln Persia,

American mining engineers, accompanied by their colored body servant,
Sam, come to Persia to work the
Shah's gold mine.
Ted fulls In love with Zohdah, the
Shah's daughter, and Billy with Loh-
lah. Zohdah's friend, while Nowobeh,
Kohdah's old nurse, pursues Sam. to
his great discomfiture, thinking him
her affinity in some other incarnation.
The Shah has other plans for Zohdah's future, and returns with Some-
crahii, Aral) sheik, who is planned to

As the story unfolds, the sheik turns
out. to be sailing under false colors,

time, orders the sheik away, throws
Ted, Billy, and Sam Into prison for
their attentions to the women. Now-

As Ted says "All's well that ends
well," and you may soon expect invitations to a triple wedding In the Garden of the Shah."
Rehearsals have already started for
the production, which will be staged
around the end of February. The music is Interestingly attractive, as it Is
somewhat Eastern, and the dialogue Is
peppy nnd amusing. Further announcements will be made later.

Chess Players Plan
Lightning Tourney
To Start Season
Chess players of the University will
commence their season's pawn-push-
lag this afternoon with a lightning
chess tournament to be held In the
ciub room In the gymnasium at 3
o'clock. Eight players, Clayton, McCu'l-
loch, McEacl"«rn, Olund, Pllkington,
Fisher, Abramson and Freeman, will
contend for mastery. M. McGregor
will officiate as time-keeper.
Drawing up a tentative program for
the season at a meeting on Friday,
the devotees of the ancient game are
prepared for a banner term. Starting
next week, a handicap knock-out
tournament will be held, to be followed by the U.B.C. championship, lt
was decided to open this event to
members of the faculty, several of
whom are known to be strong players.
Mr C. (', Millar, one of the strongest players In the Vancouver Chess
Cluh will he asked to visit the University for a simultaneous exhibition
against the pick of the Varsity players. In a .similar display two years
ago, Mr. Millar played twelve games
at once, losing only two.
The annual students vs faculty
match will find a weakened student
team striving to revenge last year's
defeat. As this setback was only by
the odd game ln five, the undergraduates by no means despair of turning
the tables ou the professional gladiators.
It was decided to admit a limited
number of new members into the
club. Knowledge of the gamo ls not
a prerequia'te. Several of the strongest players have volunteered to Instruct beginners and those who cannot play. A series of lectures on the
various phases of the game ls contemplated, and vlll be announced later,
Membership !ees are 50c per session
and must be paid before admittance
to tournaments or matches. Prospective members should interview or
write to J. Clayton, President, or W.
Hennlger. Secretary-treasurer, as soon
as possible.

Contest Plans
Final arrangements for the forthcoming B, C.-Alberta debate and plans
for other debates and Oratorical contests were discussed at a meeting of
the Debating Union held Friday afternoon in Arts 108.
As regards the forthcoming Alberta
debate the Union was once more reminded of Council's demand for financial success and were urged to co-operate as far ae possible. It was announced that a Pep meeting would be
given Friday noon to stimulate interest in the event.
Mr. S. Semple, president of Arts
'32, asked for the support ti the Union
in an Oratorical contest that this class
intends to hold as a climax to the
work of the public speaking classes
held just before Christmas. He stated
that he had been to Council twice
asking permission to use part of the
class fees for small prizes to be presented to the winners of the contest.
Council had protested, Mr. SempTe
said, that this class organisation was
encroaching on the rights of the Debating Union and that therefore they
could not agree with the scheme. The
Union felt, however, that this organ-
ixation was augmenting their work
rather than opposing it, and that
therefore they would go on record as
being in full favor with the contest
and the movement behind It.
Another important matter discussed
at the meeting was the question of
Women's inter-class debates which
have previously been handled by the
Women's Literary Society. Now that
this society has ceased to exist the
officers wish to give the responsibility
of handling these debates to the Debating Union. The debaters decided to
take over this duty if they become an
open Union.
Mr. Logan reported that teams had
been chosen for practically all classes
for tho purpose of interclass debating,
lie expects that the first debate of the
series will be held next Monday. Other
matters considered were: Ihe Varsity
Oratorical Contest which will be held
late in February or early in March;
the Montreal debato for which there
is still one vacancy; the women's
debate with Victoria College from
whom there has been no answer; and
a suggested debate with Great Britain In lf»30-31 which will be further
discussed  later.

broke a B. C. record in the speedy

the spray of salt water ln which he
was swimming for the first time.
Ernie Peden gained another flrst for
Varsity and great applause from the
spectators with his Intricate and graceful diving. Len Purdy of Bask., making his premiere in high diving showed enough form to take the third
position from Doug Oordon ot U. B. C.
Don McBurney, Saskatchewan's aee

"Turn out to-night and give your

to the swimming gala, at a Pep meeting ln the auditorium, on Friday noon,
January 10. Mr. Munn also declared
that the friendly feeling between Saskatchewan and the U.B.C. was due in
greatly to the Rugby games played
between the two universities last
Tommy Berto led Varsity in a yell
for Saskatchewan, and Mr. Munn Introduced the visiting team who were:
U'ln Purdy, Don McHurney, Alf Beuce,
Lloyd Hacnney, Hob Barr, Joe Griffiths, coach, and Am Miller.
Mr. Miller, president of the Saskatchewan A.M.S., expressed a desire tor
a large attendance at the gala to aid
intercollegiate athletics.
Harold King's "British Columbians"
played several selections during the
meeting, and George Holland entertained on his piano accordlan.
The tryouts for the Spring play are
set for Wednesday week, consequently, the hearts of the most talented
members of the Players' Club will be
palpitating at an alarming rate during this long period of suspense for
the aspirants to roles In "Friend Hannah."
Parts lu the Spring production aro
especially coveted since they entitle
the fortunate actors to a tour of the
province. The play is put on for a
week In the Spring term, and after
the University closes, tho company
goes for nn extended tour of the up-
country region and Vancouver Island.
This performance, unlike the Christinas one, Is open to the public, and
the large attendances of the past
attest Vancouver's appreciation of the
University's talents.

A scheme of great Interest would be the conducting of a
painstaking analysis of the percentage of the student body holding executive positions. From casual observation it would seem
that the multitudinous and thankless work connected with the
plethora of student clubs here is done by a surprisingly small
group of intelligentsia. Apart from reluctantly reading an occasional paper the bulk of the elubsters wait complacently to be
The same state of affairs is evident in aU other phases of
extra curricula activity. Two outstanding examples of this indifference can be found in the Muck Page and the Literary Supplement. Both these productions are open to contributions from
the student body at large and both actually depend for their
existence upon the efforts of a few "llluminati."
In spite of a suspicion that lack of activity coincides with
lack of ability, we believe that lt is just another case of the willing horse doing all the work, and that any suggestion of a
changed state of affairs would be as likely of success as an attempt at drawing blood from a stone or money from Council.
Among the excellent projects which the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace sponsors, not least from the point
of view of university people, are the clubs, which lt has organized in numerous universities In various countries, especially the
United States und England. These clubs exist for the purpose of
serious discussion of International Relations. Elsewhere In this
issue there is a notice of a meeting of all those Interested in the
formation of a similar club at U.B.C. We have been Informed that
it was through the recommendation of Sir Herbert Ames that
the Carnegie Peace Foundation has invited those Interested In
this topic to form a similar club here. We feel that this opportunity should be taken full advantage of, and that there should be
a great deal of scope for an organization of this description in
the University.
Speaking from past experience, we can say that, though the
present discussion clubs at the University serve a useful function,
nevertheless they fall to produce on the whole really worthwhile
and serious discussion, based on adequate knowledge of their
subjects. To meet this difficulty the Carnegie Endowment provides each club with ten books a year; and also sends them a
fortnightly summary of International events and its monthly
pamphlet, "International Conciliation." Furthermore it provides
a lecturer to visit each club at least once a year. With all this
help, and with a subject of such absorbing interest, if the University has any intellectual life left in it, and we believe it has, this
club should be a real success and should lie of real valti''. especially to students of present, day affairs.
Class and Club Notes
Week-end retreats and weekly study
groups are the chief feature, of S.
C. M. plans for the spring term, according to president Frank McKenzie.
Since 1917 the U. R C. branch of the
S. C. M. has gained an enviable reputation among Canadian students .ror
its many worthwhile retreats. This
spring, the plans to have two camps -
March 8-9 and April 26 lo May 3. At
these camps, activities will take the
form of study groups in the morning,
and open forums in the evening, with
the afternoons for recreation. As In
the past, the very best leadership will
he obtained.
At present, five study groups are
held during the week. Dr. Scott, ol
Union College leads a group studying
nalley's "Jesus' Place in Modern
Christianity." Miss Mildred Osler-
hout's groups Is studying Hharman'H
"Jesus of The Records." Mr. Kvan
Fulleiton leads a group studying com
paratlvc religions, Fosdick's "Adven
lures In Religion" Is studied by two
other groups In which the members
take (urns In leading.
The visit of Harry Alison, Western
Secretary, for a week, commencing
January 2Sth Is looked forward to by
the Club.
The movement wishes to get In
touch with any students who are Interested. Anyone desiring to make
contact with t»he Student Christ Ian
Movement may do so by dropping a
note to the president. Frank McKenzie, 312 Auditorium flldg.

speakers will debate with U.B.C. on
the subject "Resolved that total disarmament la essential for the attainment of world peace." Do the students
realize that there Is another question
at stake on that night, one that affects
us much more evidently and closely?
NO! They don't. "Resolved that this
ls U. H. C.'s last Inter-colleglate debate." Affirmative taken by Council,
negative by the Debating Union. Do
we care If extra-mural debating ls
continued? That remains to be seen.
The odds are heavy that Varsity Is ln
the finals where extra-mural debating
Is concerned. However, our Debating
Union Is fighting with all Its might to
retain this privilege for ua, They are
going to try to sell enough tickets to

A closed meeting of tho Chemistry
society was held at the home of Ken.
Oray, 1339 Barclay street on Thursday, Juuuury 9.

Gray then read a paper on "The
Chemistry of Wood. He described the
theory of the structure of cellulose
and of wood, and told of the mure
Important Industries for which wood
forms the raw material, for example,
wood distillation, manufacture of dyes
nnd of sugar.
The third paper, by Mr. Oray King,
was on "Chemical Warfare." The
popular conception of chemical warfare, stated Mr. King, is a chlorine

the principle factor In chemical warfare, thu nation must make a careful

Council has now issued an ultimatum to the effect that if the coming debate fails to make ends meet, it will
sound the knell of debating in this
University. Although they tell us tn
no uncertain t4rms that "cheese-paring" is thetr watchword and that they
are supporting self-supporting activities; but we always understood they
would spare a penny or two to the
less fortunate. It seems a little childish to bar from existence all pastimes

the homely stew and the pie,
And all I ask ls Java hot and a spoon
to stir her by.
And   the   cigarette   smoke,   and   the
plled-up   trays,   and   the   steam
pipes chattering,
And the rippling laugh of fair co-eds,
and the dishes clattering.
I must go down to the cat. agalu, for
the smell of the burning hash
Is a siren smell and a wistful smell
that lures the ready cash.
And all I ask is a wintry day with a
dirty sullen sky
And I'll skip my Math, and Physics

I must go down to the caf. again, to
the luxurious, lazy lite,
To the Senior's way, and the Council's

And all 1 ask Is a snappy Joke from
a laughing fellow loafer,

Editor., Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Why do the men have such an
unfair advantage over us that all the
courses In the Department of Erotics
are given to them only? I do think
that there should be classes open to
us too. 1 am nineteen and not bad
looking (at least I don't think so) yet
none has yet taken me out. I do think
we girls should receive some lessons
too. There are lots and lots of girls
agree with me ut least the rest of
Ilie Girls' Romantic Clul) does and
we just want a little fmi. Wont you
please see what you can do about it,
and I'll love you for ever and ever.
Yours for ever,
A Loving Sophette.

And seem to imply
That by some occult means

Now is this tactful?
Of the co.Id suspicion
That will frost campus
Think of the doubts

That no suspicion
Of their nefarious innuendo
Was entertained
By their prospective partners.

The prospects for the formation of

last Friday noon when twenty-five
members of the corps assembled ln

The object of the meeting being
primarily to discuss Miniature Range
Shooting for this term, it WSS deolded
that practices would be fired at Beatty
Street Armouries every Tuesday at
8 p.m. The first practice will take
place at 416 Cordova St. W. on January 14, since the Armouries are not
available for that evenings. Service
rifles equipped with .22 ln. bores will
be used until further notice. In the
near future, shooting will be conducted with the aid of aperture sights
since most competitions permit their
use. A committee, consisting of Q.M.8.
Southey, Sgt. Dalton and Cpl, Stewart-
Lough, was appointed to attend to the
necessary arrangements.
The aim of the indoor shooting is
to encourage and develop the promising shots of the unit so tbat eventually a team, or teams, may represent U. B. C. In the various competitions for which valuable cups and
prizes are donated. As soon as an Association is formed U.B.C. will be
eligible for the Dominion Into*-University Indoor and Outdoor competitions and the Imperial Universities
competition, the latter beng open to
all Universities of the Empire.
Immediate participation in these
shoots cannot be expected but every
effort wll be made to foster interest
in the competitions In order that

O.'e have made praotloally a olean
sweep of the Senior A basketball

only after much pereuaelon by league

to Its task and built an ambitious.and

first game last week and this despite
thi veiled threats of down*town

It is with deep regret that we note
the withdrawal from the University of
Oliver Camoul, captain of the Varsity Western Inter-colleglate Canadian Rugby ohamplone. Private affairs
have forced this step, we understand,
and have robbed Varaity of one of
her moat outstanding personalities.
Camoul first came into prominence
ae a stellar lineman on the rugby
squad of 1927. For three yeara In succession he won his letter, and now
has ths reputation of being one of the
first ranking linemen In Western
Canada. He was for three years the
main cog in the famous Varsity Stonewall, and In strategy and qualities of
leadership he was without a peer. He
finished his football career In a blaze
of glory last term when he led his
team to a crushing victory over the
prairie champs, to wrest the Western
Intercollegiate title from the Saskat-
On the campus Camozni has been
a well-known figure on athletic executives. He was vice-president of the
M.A.A. and a member of the Big Block
Club. Everyone will remember the
fiery speech in which he exorted the
student body to turn out "en bloc" to
support the team in the recent series.
Lethargic Pucksters
Lose to Ex-High Team
Superior combination and a greater
capacity for taking opportunities
spelled the downfall of the Varsity
Ice Hockey squad at the Arena, Thursday, when the champion Ex-KIng
George aggregation scored a comfortable 3-0 victory.
Varsity got away to a bad start
and inside five minutes were two
goals down. From then on, however,
tho college defense tightened up und
the crack Ex-King forwards could
not pierce It. Play ranged very evenly, Parker made several sallies for
the U.B.C. and his accurate shooting
was a constant worry to the Green
nnd Blue goalie.
Tho second period opened with tlio
Kx-HIgh team attacking but Seniors
was in good form und all efforts came
to nought. Varsity retaliated but a
minute later after u scrimmage In

Varsity rallied iu the third session
to put Ex-KlngB on the defensive but
Inability to skate Inside the blue line
prevented a Gold and Bluo. Curswell
and Parker worked well together but
the enemy defense proved a stumbling
Varsity did not play In active fashion, and for a losing team did a remarkable amount of defensive loafing.
There were few attempts at combination and the forwards seldom went
up three abreast. Matthews turned ln
a good exhibition of defensive hockey
while Seiders gave a sparkling display between the pipes and saved
shots at point blank range that had
"goal" plastered all over them. Cars-
well was the best forward.

North Vancouver Ex-High at Con-
