No. 28
Close to 600 guests crowded the
Crystal Ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver at the 14th annual Aggie Ball
Friday evening. *
Dummy cattle at one end, silhouette
drawings of pigs, calves, roosters
and other barn-yard creatures, on
the sides, and a huge paste-board of
a cross-eyed, rickety-backed cow at
the far end, lent an air of true rusticity to a once formal ball-room.
Even the program cards savored of
the soil, being cut and colored to represent carrots.
A mingling of the enthusiasm for
the stadium campaign was evident in
the festive atmosphere, and the
climax came when a life-size wooden
cow was raffled. Dean Clement drew
the winning ticket and the cow went
to Margaret Muirhead, Secretary of
the Alma Mater Society.
Later the cow was again placed
on the block since, as Hutchison said.
Councillors are a flock of sheep and
a cow would be out of place in their
midst. Sydney Bowman conducted
the auction and was ready with
copious statistics regarding the
pounds of milk per day and the per
cent butter-fat yielded by the cow.
At one time it appeared that the
bovine would sell for 16.60 when
Hutchison, conscience stricken, made
a valiant effort to win back Council's
cow by a bid of $6.61. Win Shilvock
ultimately got possession by offering
Harold King's philanthropic "British Columbians" supplied the necessary melodious wails and whimperings.
Patronesses for the event were
Dean M. L. Bollert, Mrs. Clement,
Mrs. Buchanan, Mrs. Brock, Mrs.
McKechnie and Mrs^Klinck.
Students Solicit
A campaign to raise money from the
out-of-town High Schools was outlined
by Mr. Eric North, who occupied the
chair at a meeting of the out-of-town
students, held in Arts 100 on Saturday at noon.
It was planned to solicit aid from
the High Schools of tho Province, and
for this purpose a committee of members was elected, consisting of: Chairman, Mr. Eric North; Chairman of
Victoria Committee, Mr. Bob Wallace;
Secretary, Mr. John D. Dauphinee;
News Items and Advertising, Miss
Edith Sturdy and Cecil Hacker; Alfred Watts.
All the out-of-town High Schools
will receive in the near future letters
outlining the plan of action, and copies
of the Ubyssey. News items will be
sent regularly to the interior and
northern B.C., from which districts
a large proportion of students come.
Various other methods of advertising
the scheme will be used.
At a committee meeting held in the
seminar room, Saturday afternoon, a
letter was composed which will be sent
to the principals of the high schools
All out-of-town students are urged
to get in touch with members of the
committee at once for a great deal
of work will be necessary to make
the scheme a success. All suggestions
for the campaign will be gladly received.
The ardent enthusiasm with
which the "Ubyssey" is read, in
the Caf, and other out-of-the-
way places, is much in evidence:
but with what distress, and sorrow are they seen, discarded
and trampled on, under the
tables, or used by cheering
Scient'omen to make miniature
aeroplanes to hurl from the
Auditorium gallery on to the
heads of unoffending audiences!
Why not send it to some out-
of-town friends -make the University's Stadium drive province-wide! There are many
potential Varsity students
throughout the province, and a
copy of the "Ubyssey" will
serve to enlist their support
for a project which will be of
inestimable value to them in a
year or so.

;, brings the total of the fund to $1,105.18.  Madame X will give
further sittings on Thursday.
Skits and the flaunting of fine
costumes were features of Hi-Jinx,
at which members of the Women's
Undergraduate Society disported Saturday night in the gymnasium.
Beryl Rogers, of Arts '34, evoked
howls of laughter with her spring
dance. Arts '33 put on a skit, entitled "The Yellow Peril," in which
sneezes occurred at the most dramatic moments. A chorus and t^lgau
by the Literary Forum and a skit
by the Nurses also formed part of
the entertainment.
The prize for the funniest costume
was awarded to Beryl Rogers, the ballet dancer; Pat Harvey, a baby, and
Isabel MacArthur, her negro nurse,
won the prize for the best couple;
and the yo-yo girls, Mary Matheson
and Helen Lowe, received the award
for the most original costume. Honorable mention was given to "the old
woman in the shoe" and all her children, who were so numerous that they
could not be given a prize.
This year the costumes were funny
and original rather than pretty, so
no prize was awarded for the prettiest costume.
Dancing to the Tempo Sisters'
peppy orchestra, refreshments and
games all went to make the evening
a success.
Patronesses for the affair were
Dean Bollert, Dr. Mclnnis, Mrs. Kli-
nck and Miss Greig who acted as
judges for the costumes.
Collegiate dress will feature a monster Varsity Stadium dance in the
Vancouver Auditorium, Georgia St.,
on the night of February 6. Artists
from Vancouver theatres will contribute intermission numbers, and valuable prizes will be raffled, according
to members of the Stadium Dance
Dancing will continue from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. The program will include
a University skit and varied entertainment from visiting artists. Novelties will be the order of the evening.
Tickets will be sold at down town
head-quarters as well as at the University, the price being $1.50 a couple.
Plans to advertise the dance include
radio broadcasting, window displays,
and parade demonstrations.
Entire proceeds of the affair will
go toward the stadium campaign. The
dance is being sponsored by the combined classes of Arts '31 and Education  '31.

Success Secrets
Revealed To
An interesting lecture on the theme
"The Secrets of a Successful Life"
was delivered by the Rev. J. E. Harris, B.A., Alberta, at the V. C. U. meeting last Thursday.
The importance of an overcoming
life was emphasized by the speaker
who declared that "he who can control his own life is greater than he
who can capture a city."
A person, on entering the Christian life, is not only making a fresh
start in life, but is also given a new
heart. This does not imply that he
will now automatically live a perfect
life for this would mean that he
would not possess a free will. Only
by daily surrending ourselves to
Christ and conforming our minds to
His spirit can we live a victorious life.
To learn the mind of Christ we
must study the Bible and to find His
will in our small personal problems
we must live a life of prayer. In
conclusion the speaker pointed out
that we should give first place to
spiritual things and give a resolute
denial to any re-entrance of the old

A distinguished visitor will be
honored on Thursday next when the
Rev. Principal Edmund H. Oliver, of
St. Andrew's College, Saskatoon, and
Moderator of the United Church of
Canada, will receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity at a Special Convocation in the Auditorium
at 3:00 p.m.
Dr. Oliver was Classics Gold
Medallist from University of Toronto
in 1902, and since that time has had
a distinguished career of service,
notably in advancing the work of the
United Church in Western Canada.
For four years head of the History
Department at McMaster University.
Dr. Oliver came to the University of
Saskatchewan to be Professor of
History in 1909. Three years later,
when the Presbyterian Church established St. Andrew's College in affiliation with the University at Saskatoon. Dr. Oliver was chosen Principal.
During the war, Principal Oliver
served as a Special Chaplain, and
during the last ten years has been a
moving force in religious and educational activity in Canada. Climaxing
much historical writing and editing,
Dr. Oliver's latest book, "The Win-
ning of the Frontier" tells a story
of Church Life in Western Canada.
On Thursday afternoon the Moderator will address the Special Convocation of Union College on "The
Place of the Church in the Making
of the West." The Principals of
Union College extend a very cordial
invitation to all students of the University who may be interested to be
present. A reception for the Moderator and Mrs. Oliver will be held in
Union College at 4:30 p.m.
The recent refusal of the Toronto
Police Commission to grant permits
for public meetings to various organizations, is having a wide-spread effect.
Sixty-eight members of the Faculty
of Toronto University issued a statement making "a public protest against
the stand of the Toronto Police Commission," regarding "free speech."
The Board of Governors of the
University, meeting on January 22,
to discuss the action of the professors,
issued no statement. Meanwhile,
through the "Varsity," the undergraduate newspaper, a student vote has
been taken on the question, and the
professors have been upheld, by a
five to one vote.
The Police Commission was to meet
again, on January 23. The enforcement of their edict has led to several clashes between Communists and

A horse race will be the first event in the new stadium,
and it will take place on Wednesday at 3 p.m., before work

The promoter requested the press not to disclose the in-
terests that are behind this enterprise. He affirmed that the
contest will be run strictly according to A. M. S. rules, but
spectators may attend in the assurance that arrangements
will be made, in some way, for them to contribute their dimes

partner of Messrs. Welsh and Welsh. The daily forms, conditions and weights of jockeys, and inside information will
be posted daily at the University.
Seniors Stoical
As Last Lots
* Are Drawn
That the Seniors should cancel the
spring boat-trip and contribute this
money to the Stadium fund was decided amid much discussion at a meeting of the classes of '31 at noon
Friday, in Arts 100. As a further
means of swelling the fund, a dance,
open to the public, is to be held in the
Auditorium downtown. Since the orchestra has offered its services free
of charge it is hoped that nearly six
hundred dollars will thus be raised.
Eighty per cent of their caution money
was voted for the fund also. A motion to make the Senior Ball a public
dance was defeated.
And then came the Draw! Dread
fate would soon issue her decrees.
The crowded room rivalled that of
English 2a lectures in the good old
days; eager students trying to push
their way in at the doors, Seniors trying to look nonchalant, Juniors looking as Seniors ought to have looked,
Sophs looking vastly superior and
nervous, not quite sure that they ought
to be there. Now the names were
being read, some greeted with sympathetic silence, others with little sighs
of envy; some with gasps, others with
applause—the Seniors resigned themselves to the decrees of Fate with
becoming gratitude.
The meeting broke up amid wild
excitement when Alan Campbell announced the noble back-to-nature
movement just voted by the Men's
Undergraduate Society. Just picture
the Senior Ball!

Plans for the forthcoming Stadium
Campaign were outlined to Freshmen
at their class meeting held Wednesday, January 21.
Jack Thomson announced that the
objective set for the Freshman
classes is $5,690. Various methods
were suggested for the raising of
this sum. A systematic canvass is
to be made of the high-schools, to
gain support from future university
students. The meeting voted unanimously to turn their caution money
over to the fund. Numerous publicity stunts are to be arranged on
down-town streets.
Considering the small number of
Freshmen present at the meeting, a
great deal more interest must be
aroused, if the ultimate objective is
to be attained. However, as the
speaker said, this is an opportunity
for Freshmen to show their spirit,
and undoubtedly as the campaign advances Arts '34 will rally around in
Nancy Carter spoke particularly to
the girls, suggesting the holding of
teas and bridges to raise funds.
Doug. Brown, president of the Class,
indicated the line of action to be followed by the boys. Smokers, shoe-
shine parlors and shaving stands
were suggested. A band is at present
being organized by Oliver Anderson
who will welcome recruits. No possible field of action is being overlooked by the Freshman committee
in charge who will welcome all suggestions.
Dr. G. M. Shrum was elected Honorary President of the Class.
Class fees have been set at $1.50.
However, all those paying their fees
before January 29 will be required
to pay only $1.25.
The meeting closed with the reiterated command for every Freshman to raise his contribution of
$10.00, no matter in what form it
should be procured.
College Snapshots
Needed For "Totem"
Snap shots of college scenes or of
students are now in order for the
scrap page of the "Totem". All students who have any suitable pictures
are asked to get in touch with the
"Totem" editor immediately and students are asked to take advantage of
fine weather for the taking of campus
pictures. It is suggested that classes
who wish to have their campaign for
the Stadium remembered may do so
by taking snap shots and handing them
in for the scrap page of the "Totem".
Anyone who wishes to canvass the
business men o? the down tov/n area
is asked to get in touch with Ralph
Brown at the Students' Council office.
Anyone having copies of the University Annuals of 1917-18, 1918-19,
1921-22 who wish to place them in
the Library please communicate with

Adding Insult To Injury
For what we are about to say, we humbly beg the pardon of
all conventionally narrow patriots, of all short-sighted cynics
and skeptics, of all unprincipled devotees of the "social whirl,"
and of our misguided friends in the C. 0. T. C. We expect to be
severely censured, and the mildest criticisms will probably charge
us with bad taste and smallness of mind. Our only excuse is
sincerity, and a belief that the majority of students will approve
our attitude.
*       *       *
The "Ubyssey" wishes to protest against the dance that the
C. 0. T. C. intends to hold early next month. In the first place,
there are too many social events in connection with the University
already. In the second place, no other university course offers
a dance as an added attraction, and military training is the last
course of all that should be allowed to have added attractions.
In the third place, the event will cause the public mind to connect
the University and the student body with military training, and
that cannot be too strongly denounced and deplored.
The Alma Mater Society is affiliated with the League of
Nations Society in Canada. Its executive gives five dollars to
ward the holding of a conference in Vancouver, and apparently
considers its obligations met. We suggest, however, that if the
Students' Council will not spend money to promote the interests
of the League, the least it can do is to protest to the authorities
against this adding of social eclat to the military training course
In the opinion of the "Ubyssey" the Senate, when it reestablished the C. 0. T. C, did an injury to the prestige and influence that this—or any other—university should have as a promoter of progress and civilization, and the proposed C. 0. T. C
dance will add insult to the injury.
When The Seniors Are Away ...
When the Seniors are away, it seems, the Juniors. Sophomores, and Freshmen will play. At any rate, that is what happened on Friday. While the Seniors were at their "class draw,"
a Men's Undergrad meeting decided that the males of the place
will not shave until the $20,000 stadium fund is raised. It would
be interesting to know how many of the men at the Undergrad
meeting could grow beards anyway.
However, we must refrain from throwing cold water on
this hairbrained idea, and for two reasons: (a) the spirit of it
is splendid, and (b) the whole city was buzzing with the news
of it a few hours after its adoption by the ingenious Freshmen
and associated upper year youths. The last reason is important, because The People must not be disappointed. The students will not get a generous public response to their campaign
efforts if false hopes are raised. The People expect to see
bearded students, and bearded students they should see.
Since it has started, the cultivation of beards should be
generally practised, or it will die out rapidly. The fad will be
on trial for the next day or two, and its ,fate depends on the number of men who adopt it. "United we stand, divided we fall!"
That Word "Swell"
"Our idea of a swell novel" is the comment of the Chicago
Tribune on a certain new book. Coming from a responsible
and respected newspaper, the choice of language is somewhat
startling. The prestige of the Chicago Tribune gives a certain
weight to such radicalism and we hesitate before condemning
it utterly.
One of the chief virtues of the English language is its flexibility and its power to adapt itself to changing conditions. New
words are constantly being incorporated into the language as the
need arises.   The only question is, where to stop.
Up to the present "swell" has been considered a vulgarism
used only by the uncultured. Apparently efforts are now being
made to raise it to the dignity of established usage. The word's
fitness for this position may be questioned but the final test rests
with the function it performs. If "swell" fills a genuine gap in
the vocabulary then one is reactionary, and indeed attempting
the impossible, to deny it a place. If it is superfluous it will be
so much deadword and will soon be discarded. No charm, therefore, and possibly some benefit may result from the experiment.
Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
Re the current discussion as to the
relative merits and weaknesses of the
Sport Page of the "Ubyssey". While
I am not one of the "representatives
of various clubs" whom the Sport
editor proposes canvassing, my views
may be of interest to those concerned,
as being more or less indication of the
feeling of the average student interested in athletics in general, rather
than that of these "representatives,"
interested primarily in one particular
In the first place, I heartily agree
with "Anonymous" in his clever attack
on the word-mincing, exaggeration,
triteness, etc., so apparent in recent
write-ups. From a hasty perusal of
recent issues, I can add to the expressions he quotes, the following: "Pedagogues Pass Parsons in Soecer Strug-
Sle's;" "Bunny Bonny as Racketers
ise;" "Bully Girls Jolt 'Em And
Surprise us too" referring to women's
grass hockey victory; "do or die for
their dear old Alma Mater;" and
others too numerous to mention. As
to last issue's report on the Varsity
•Crusader basketball game as a sport
write-up — well, the less said the
The lack of adequate "Advances"
on at least the more important games
and the extremely sparing use of
"Cuts," are also regrettable. Undoubtedly, by fuller use of these
methods, interest in and attendance
at athletic events could be materially
A tendency to over-indulgence in
the treatment of the Varsity teams
in describing games is also apparent.
While naturally we wish to regard
the performance of our athletes as
favorably as possible, at the same
time helpful criticism and comment
are quite justifiable, and may be of
great benefit to the teams or players
In conclusion, I may say that I am
very much in favor of the grouping of
all sport news on one page. It Is a
decided improvement over former
methods. I would also like to endorse
the Sport Editor's stand as to the
publicity to be given major and minor
sports, respectively.
Yours truly,
R. C. Price
Oarsmen To Train
Under New Coach
A former Oxford oarsman, Mr. J.
Atkinson, has been secured as coach
for the Boat Club this season,
announces Frank Buckland, Boat Club
president. Under his coaching the
boys are expected to be in tine shape
for the races, against James Bay
Athletic Association during the Victoria invasion in March. A week after
the Victoria races, the annual regatta
against the V.R.C. will take place.
No definite line-up has been decided
upon as yet by Captain Funk Buck-
land and Stroke Christy Madsen. This
is due to the fact that, although there
is much good material this year, the
boys have not yet had .sufficient train-

Editor, The "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
What is the matter with the co-eds
of this University? Judging from
comments I have heard on the campus there is to be a meeting to decide whether the women shall be allowed to smoke in certain designated
places. And yet the leaders of the
movement are going around in a
mortal funk that if they speak for
smoking, Faculty will rise up in their
wrath and fail them all at the Spring
Examinations. Surely we can trust
Faculty to exercise a sense of fair
play and not allow matters of a non-
academic nature to interfere with
matters purely academic.
If the co-eds have not enough backbone to stand up for what they think
are their rights, they ought not to be
out here. Let's see the women turn
out to the meeting and discuss the
matter from all angles, and have the
courage of their convinctions when
they vote. If they do they will not
be sorry for it.
Freedom of Speech.
Dear Sir:
According to Dr. MacDonald's definition, "an essay is a leisurely contemplation of a commonplace subject
jotted down when your feet are on
the mantle" and your head—well
never mind where your head is.
With this idea, feel quite justified
in considering myself an essayist of
the first degree, for my feet are on
the mantle piece, my thoughts are
certainly leisurely, and my jottings
can never be organized into any
system whatsoever. As far as subject matter is concerned nothing
could be more commonplace than the
essay when four or five hundred students doze over the "word" every
twice a week.
Summing up these evident conclusions then, I feel I can aspire to one
type of literature, and I have no
doubt my name will follow that of
Lamb and Lucas in the "traditional
"Aspiring Dumb Dora."
The Editor, The "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
It seems indeed a disgrace that
every year we should see the thieving
element remain unchecked in our
University. During the three years
I have been here, I have noticed that
overcoats, books, athletic equipment,
umbrellas and what not, are Invariably stolen from different buildings
or from cars parked on the campus.
In one day this week I heard of an
overcoat, a pair of running shoes,
and several books having been stolen;
the same evening, on going to my
car, I found both the head-lamp
globes missing and the tail-light
globe broken in an attempt to remove it. I give this only as an ex
ample of what is going on in our
midst, more or less all the time.
To be compelled to admit that
such conditions exist in an institu
tion of higher learning, must, I am
sure, be felt a disgrace by the majority of our student body. Surely we
can find some remedy for this. Surely there should be some way in which
undesirables could be kept out of the
University. What can our Student
Government do to remedy this state
of affairs? Shouldn't students registering at the University for the
first time be required to produce a
satisfactory written character recommendation? Any honest, thoughtful
student would see the motive of this
requisition and would not take of
fence at it. This is only my suggestion. I should like to hear others
and then to see some definite action
taken in this direction.
Thanking you, I remain,
Sincerely yours,
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
It is a well known fact that a certain member of faculty is summoning leaders of the smoking-for-women
movement and inducing them to remain silent at the coming meeting.
This is hardly fair to the women
and thus the meeting will not be a
representative expression of opinion
on the subject. This action is a
flagrant example of lobbying and
should not be tolerated by the women.

Editor "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
The righteous indignation and virtuous protestations which have arisen
from a small but very select and vocal
minority in the University over the
vexed question of women smoking is
ludicrously analogous to the sensation which would be caused in a convent if the Mother Superior discovered a smuggled copy of Boccacio or
a bottle of gin. Let it be repeated—
the analogy is close and laughable.
The position of the women students
who smoke (and estimates from wide
spread and reliable sources indicate
that the proportion is about 30C'r) is
equally anomalous since many smoke
on the campus in spite of the 'unwritten laws." The analogy in their
case is to one of the most graphic and
revolting of Scriptural citations, "Like
unto whited sepulchres . . ." Hypocrisy should not be encouraged or
tolerated under any circumstances.
Apparently the strongest argument
in favor of continuing the present
policy is that freshettes (who are
relatively young) will be impelled to
adopt the habit if smoking becomes
legalized on the campus. This argument is palpably fallacious. The glamor of surreptitious smoking exerts a
more irresistible attraction on the
sensibilities of innocent freshettes
than the open, honest practise could
ever hope to do.
Another point advanced stresses the
influence on public opinion in Vancouver, especially at this time when
money is needed for the stadium. Undoubtedly a considerable number of
provincially-minded citizens would
disagree but (except in a few instances) these are not the people who
would contribute anyway.
The question, however, is one which
rests solely with the women. If they
care enough about women's rights in
the abstract or for the disgrace of
their present insincere position to settle the issue decisively, one way or
the other, they will clarify a problem
which has cast its shadow over the
University for years and placed more
than one member of the Women's
Undergrad Executive in an embarrassing position.
Yours very truly,
Dear Mr. Editor:
Must I again call attention to our
sports reporters? Your last edition
very kindly "corrected" its error. Corrected? Yes, with two more mistakes.
I hear that the 20-24 mistake was a
"typographical error"—granted. Maybe the naming of a wrong team again
was also a "typographical error." The
losing team was the Meralomas, not
the Pals.
Again—Fair play, for Senior "B."
'Boost the Campaign*
'"Send Out Ubytseys
"To every High Shool in the province a letter is being sent, showing
them just what the Stadium means
to us. We are asking every student
here to help us in this respect, by
writing letters to their friends in the
interior and by sending copies of the
'Ubyssey' to them. Remember—a
paper will take the place of a letter
—so—send the 'Ubyssey* everywhere.
Tell your family—tell your brothers
or sisters in the High School—tell
everyone. Boost the Stadium by doing this."

Beckoned by the finger of eternity, Anna Pav-
lowa has danced lightly off this stage of life.
We say "lightly" because to one who was so thoroughly attuned to the harmonies of existence the
passage between this life and the next could have
been nothing more than a few tripping steps.
Havelock Ellis, in his "Dance of Life," formulates the theory that all life is a dance and can be
expressed in terms of the dance.
Certainly the dancing of Pavlowa was able to
express all those thoughts that crowd the human
mind, all those emotions that surge in the human
soul. Her dancing was more articulate than the
human voice.
With tenderness and almost with awe, millions
will remember how when Pavlowa floated upon the
stage in some of her exquisite dance creations, she
raised her audience, by her infinite genius, to the
same airy level as herself. The lovely rhythm of her
lithe body raised an answering echo of rhythm in
the souls of those who watched her.
For rhythm is the universal speech, intelligible
throughout the ether, in this worm and in the next.
Whoever dances well has a sense of rhythm.
Whoever has a sense of rhythm is beginning to be
attuned to the music of nature.
For 25 years, Pavlowa opened the ears of enchanted audiences to the wonderful cadences of the
And now, on wings lighter even than her own,
on the gossamer wings of Death, Pavlowa has
drifted away to dance forever to the ineffable
melodies of eternity, wherever they may be.

Columnists who contribute to the
"Ubyssey" have to be patient and
long-suffering. Writers are continually haunted with the realization that
all their cherished sayings as well
as the fillers, have to run the gauntlet of absent-minded lino-typers, dumb
proof-readers and nescient editors. All
of which is merely an introduction
to an explanation of a word that appeared in this column last week.
Thanks to a well-meaning but ignorant proof-reader I was given the credit of saying that there is an official
"tirade" against smoking by women.
The word used in the unimproved version was "irade," a recognized word
in the English language, derived from
the Turkish.
*   *   *
Apparently the W.U.S. will again
consider the vexed question of smoking among the co-eds. I imagine
there might be a very Illuminating
verdict if the women should pluck up
enough courage to say that they really
think on the matter. The fact that so
few co-eds publicly condemn the rule,
while so many privately break it,
seems to indicate a fear that hearsay
would not go unpersecuted. It is my
belief (hat when the time of the meeting comes around, few women will
advocate smoking, the present regulation will be upheld and 60% of those
present at the meeting will break the
rule before the week Is out.
The select few who read "Fun and
Fundamentals" must have noticed a
singular change that has gradually
come over that column. No longer
do we hear the hoof (or wing) beats
of Pegasus, no longer is each offering accompanied by a flourish of lyres
—the muse has deserted her museum.
Bunthorne has ceased to revel publicly in the beauties of the Second
Narrows as seen from Point Grey. He
is resisting the transcendental urge to
lay before the world his throbbing
heart, pulsing out its life-blood in an
inexorable yearning for Beauty. He
has quelled the urge to emotionalize
in print. In conversation last week he
expressed disgust when I pointed out
the grandeur of the distant mountains
as seen from the Pub.
Yep, Bunthorne's a low-brow like
me. Nowadays he hands out a line
of boloney that is not poetic. He may
have retrogressed in departing from
his former racket, but at any rate
he will now have more readers.

The Publications Board has undertaken to boost the campaign and enliven the spirits of the workers by
means of a slogan contest. This ought
to prove a source of inspiration and
uplift. Useful, too. Arts '32, for instance, might profitably adopt or
adapt   the   familiar   slogan   "Even
Sour best friends won't tell you—But
ladame X will. Hear your future
for the sake of the Stadium."
Thoth Thwim Meet has a wealth
of slogans from which to choose:—
"Clean outside as well as in"—"In
the Swim"—or perhaps "Who's your
skinny friend. Ethel??
For our friends in the Quad, what
about "A Hot Dog a day keeps the
Doctor Away" — "Be nonchalant —
swing a Yo-Yo"—or "You too must
pass the 'Close-up' test"?
For next Saturday's tag-day I suggest "Four out of five have It—and

To strive for points, they fight, they

Barnyard Souvenirs
Stolen From Ball
Two pigs (models) were taken by
souvenir seekers from among the decorating material at the Aggie Ball.
While members of the dance committee are flattered that students should wish to keep souvenirs of what
was undoubtedly an auspicious occasion, they wish to make it known that
these animals were borrowed from
Pat. Burns & Co. for the affair and
the good name of the University is
at stake if they are not returned;
moreover the cost will naturally have
to be met. Those harbouring the
quadrupeds are therefore asked to return them to the Curator's office without delay.
Following are the names of those
picked to represent their faculty in the
forthcoming benefit Canadian Rugby
struggle. These men are expected
to turn out for practice from now
until the date of the game.

Leading Ex-Kings Take Breaks To Win 3-0
CHANCES of keeping the Tisdall Cup were just that much
farther away when Varsity ruggers straggled off the field
Saturday with a 3-0 loss chalked up against them by the peerless X-King George outfit. An unconverted try by Archibald late in
the second half gave the green-and-black brigade the verdict. A
fair sized crowd of students witnessed the game.
The college fifteen forced the pace
throughout the first half, X-Kings
only entering the Blue and Gold two-
bit area three times. A greasy ball
that spoiled many three-quarter runs
(rave the packs plenty to do in the
Bob Gaul got Into the limelight
early, catching the ball at top speed
and covering forty yards before being downed. The U.B.C. forwards had
a slight edge over their opponents and
usually gained ground in the loose
scrums. Griffin showed speed in following up.
The back division played a sound
defensive game but could not force an
opening. Ellis got in some useful work
in his new berth on the three line.
Niblo was the big noise on the West
End team.
Murray and Rogers broke away
early in the second session and got
within ten yards of the X-K.G. line.
The Georgians came right back and
after a scrum a few feet from the
U.B.C. goal line, forced the ball over,
making varsity touch-down. The resulting drop-out took the play to the
other end of the field.
The green-and-black three-quarters
began to dominate the play, making
drive after drive for the line. Good
tackling and a few fumbles kept the
score sheet blank. Bert and Phil
Barratt displayed a little brotherly
co-operation that netted forty yards,
Bert passing to Phil and receiving the
oval again.
Play became fiercer as the time limit
neared. Varsity was getting the ball
from the scrum but the King George
defense held. Twice Urquhart intercepted U.B.C. passes for long gains.
Murdock earned his niche in the gallery of rugby heroes when he overhauled two King George stalwarts
who had dribbled through the college
defense a'nd were across the line.
Murdock appeared from nowhere and
dived on the ball before the astonished forwards could touch it.
King George continued to force the
pace. About ten minutes from time
their efforts were rewarded when
Niblo broke through and passed to
Archibald who slid across near the
flag.   The convert kick was wide.
Varsity fought hard to equalize, but
fierce tackling turned the collegians
back. Murdock nearly did the trick
when he pinned Humphries on the
West Enders' goal line. The ball
bounced clear to be seized and touched
in goal by Aivazoff.
The teams: Varsity: Cleveland,
Gaul, Murdock, Mercer, Ellis, Esta-
brook, P. Barratt, B. Barratt, Mason,
Murray, Foerster, Ledingham, Nixon,
Rogers and Griffin.
Capilano Forwards
Overrun Varsity
Hard Hearts
Soiled Soccerlings
In a mediocre soccer match at
Templeton Park, Saturday, Hearts
defeated Varsity Juniors 2-0 in the
first round of the Con Jones Shield.
The game was fairly clean, but only
occasional flashes of good soccer were
shown. Hearts deserved their win,
and it was no fault of the defenders
that they ran in two goals. Hearts
scored their first ten minutes after
the kick-off. Varsity attacked strongly but could not beat the opposing
defense. Hearts again scored when
Dickson in an effort to save deflected
the ball past Frattinger, who had no
chance. This completed the scoring,
although Hearts dominated the play.
The defense was good. Frattinger
dealt with many difficult shots, while
Roper and Grant broke up numerous
attacks. Of the half-backs, MacDougal
was the pick, with White and Dickson playing well. The forwards were
seldom in the game, except at the beginning of the first half. L. Todd and
Cunningham on the left and right
wings respectively turned in good
Once upon a time there was a lad
named Sanderson who played soccer
for Varsity Juniors. As time went
on the youth, from a mere player became manager of the Varsity Senior
team and his active career on the
muddied pitch appeared finished.
But Saturday Varsity was to meet
Capilano in an Iroquois Cup fixture
ana at 1:00 p.m. it was announced
that one player would be unable to
be present. Therefore Tommy, for
that is what hia mother calls him,
borrowed strip and declared himself ready to go forth to die or do—
Jou know the rest, and believe me,
rother, he did.
As far as football was concerned
it was a sad afternoon for Varsity
who lost 8-0. Things went wrong
from the beginning, and the Blue and
Gold heroes seemed temperamental
or disorganized or something. At any
rate after a little while Capilano paid
a short visit to the white sweatered
college custodian and kicked the ball
at him in a quite friendly way.
Kozoolin, who also does noble deeds
for Varsity became displeased at the
poor manner in which the thing was
done and very firmly knocked the
leather from the goalie's arms into
the net, which made one for the
The Northsiders, pleased at this
friendly reception, returned to the
Varsity backs and one gentleman
let the ball bounce from his head
into the goal, while the goalie
sprawled gracefully where the ball
was  not.
This made things very black indeed
and in the second half the Varsity
fellows were more sociable, paying
many calls on the martyr between
the Capilano posts and sometimes
propelling the sphere in his general
direction. Then the Capilano inside
right conceived a liking for cross
bars and having shot against the
Varsity bar he tried the same thing
with his head but missed the bar as
the pill obligingly entered the net.
And that was how it happened.
Dave Todd did a lot of nice things
for Varsity as did Bunny Wright.
Costain was very careless indeed at
times while Alan Todd seemed downhearted over something or other.
Sanderson deserves a great big
hand while Koozolin was always the
cool master mind. Cox had a tough
time but performed creditably.
Roberts and Chalmers were very
ungentle and did a lot of things
quite unpleasant for Capilano.
Among those ^resent were—McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Cox,
Kozoolin, Sanderson; Wright (B),

Puck Pets Outplay
I Ex-K.G. To Draw 1-1
Varsity puckchasers corralled one
goal and one point from the Ex-King
George contingent in a game in which
they showed themselves capable of
far better things, at the Arena last
Friday night. The final period was
marred by a serious accident to Kirby
who had to be rushed to the hospital.
The collegians dominated the play
in the first frame, adopting offensive
tactics and peppering the green-and-
black custodian with shots, most of
which were from too far out to be
dangerous. A single penalty and lack
of score marked this episode. The
Kings made a better snowing after
the first interval but had difficulty
keeping their army of spares off the
ice. The,

>y changed men at practically
rv  whistle, a  practice that was
hardly to their advantage, The session
duplicated the first in being scoreless.
Anderton of Ex-King George drew the
only penalty.
Things happened thick and fast in
the final period. Five minutes after
the start Ramsden, who gave a atelier performance throughout the game,
tricked both green-and-black defence
men and sent in a sizzling shot. The
ex-regal goalie managed to stop the
effort but Dorrell, who was following
up, gathered the rubber on the round
first and only     	
utes later the college defence mud
bound and sagged the hemp for Varsity's first and only tally.   Two mln-

the score.
It was during a struggle against
the boards at the Varsity end that
Kirby, U.B.C. star defence man, bending low, took a nasty gash in the
throat from a raised skate. He was
taken off the ice immediately but the
fact that the last minutes of the game
were played over gore smeared ice
to the tune of an ambulance siren
had a demoralizing effect on players
of both teams.

Barbarie's Proteges Take Sixth Straight
Varsity Senior "B" basketball chances suffered a decided
set back Saturday evening at the V. A. C. gym when the league
leading Mountain View Pals (Stop me if I'm wrong) took the students into camp 35-20
The Senior "A" girls however made the evening worth while
by trouncing the Woodwards girls 24-11.
The Pals had a nasty habit of tossing long passes into the
corner and then out again to a man who found the basket with
monotonous regularity and by dint of

Th first Badminton team put up a
good battle against New Westminster
Saturday night, to win 9-7. The
Royal City gym was unfamiliar to
the students and they were decidedly
off their game for the first part of the
evening. Nic Solly and Phae Van
Dusen won both their mixed but the
other couples dropped theirs. Varsity
play revived in the men's and ladies'
doubles, U.B.C. winning seven out of
a possible eight games. This narrow
victory leaves Varsity still second in
the league. The team: Phae Van

Just before Christmas about a hundred enthusiastic students
decided that they would appreciate lower rates at the skating
rink and appointed a committee of altruistic workers to arrange
for the printing and distribution of semi-season tickets. After
Christmas less than half of the necessary seventy-five could be
found who would put up the munificent sum of $3.25 to obtain
reduced skating dues, and the idea had to be abandoned after the
tickets were printed. This must have been a little disappointing
for those who had worked hard to organise a live skating club
at Varsity. It now appears that this same hard working executive
has not given up in disgust, as well it might have done. No, it is
determined to provide advantages for its members and has arranged that for the modest sum of 25c per person Varsity skaters
may have the privelege of a private dressing room at the Arena
for the remainder of the season. What has been the result ? Up
to the present so small a number of students has been tfble to find
even a lonely quarter to give for very definite advantages at the
rink that the executive of the skating club looks like being left
in the cold corner once more.

Early Scores Beat
U. B. C. Gridders
Playing their first City League
game, Varsity's Canadian Grid Grap-
plers succumbed before the determined
offensive of the powerful V.A.C. line
and its fleet backfield. Despite their
advantage in weight the Clubbers
were unable to gain any ground through line plunging and were forced to
go around the end for most of their
long gains. It was a gory game and
man after man was carried off the
field, some of them seriously injured.
Varsity received the kick off and the
better part of the first period was occupied by a punting duel, both teams
going cautiously and feeling each
other out. However, toward the end
of the quarter the play began to move
down into Varsity territory.
The next period held disaster for
the students and shortly after the
whistle blew Mercer, V.A.C. backfield
flash slipped around the end to score.
During the remainder of the quarter
and the better part of the next the
Collegians managed to hold off the
Clubbers' offence and even threatened
their opponents' goal themselves once
or twice. Late in the third session,
however, the V.A.C. broke away a-
gain and it was just too bad for
These reverses could not break the
spirit of the students and they started
out determinedly to even things up in
the last quarter. In this they were
unsuccessful until McKnight received
a pass from Collins and got away for
a gain of twenty yards. This put the
students within striking distance of
the opposing line. They scored when
Collins went over on a buck and Gordon converted just as the whistle
