Klwanls Club Sponsors First Showing
Of Spring Play at Edison Theatre
On March 2nd
The premiere of "Alice-Sit-by-the-
Flre" will be presented In the Edison Theatre of New Westminster on
March 2. This is the third year that
the Spring play has opened in that
city, sponsored by tiie Klwanls Club,
who were very appreciative of
"Friend Hannah" and "The Young
Idea."
Three members of the cast, Betty
Wilson, Swanhild Mathison and Al-
Istalr Taylor make their homes In
New Westminster.
By opening In a small town the
Players Club always ensures a good
first night at the University, since
any uriforseen difficulties can be eliminated.
The Play Is a whimsical .satire on
outmoded stage^ conventions, linked
with an Intriguing story which Is
polished off in that entertaining
manner which is peculiar to Sir
James M. Barrie.
THREATENED CHANGE
IN ELIGIBILITY RULES
FA1LSJ0 DEVELOP
Lack of a quorum was the monkey
wrench in the machine that should
have produced an amendment to the
constitution of the A.M.S. regarding
eligibility rules at an Alma Mater
meeting Friday.
The 'point system,' approved by the
Men's Athletic Association executive
was presented by Ev. King and Ralph
Thomas. They pointed out that the
present system encroached upon the
inalienable rights of the Individual
to get something for his Alma Mater
fee. If a student was declared ineligible, the devotees of tho new
system declared, the only thing he
got for an investment of one thousand dollars and one year of his lite
was the Ubyssey. '
The meeting was calling for the
'question' when Don McDiarmid got
up and suggested that before the
meeting voted it should, hear the
views of Students' Council on the
subject. Many students who were
, present, expressed the opinion that
he had been 'primed' before the
meeting.
Earl Vance then relinquished the
chair to Dorothy Myers   and   pro-

Mr. Yusuf All Sees In Modern University Spirit Sound Basis for Union
Of East and Westr-Prlvilege To
Examine, Sift and Modify
Tradition.
Speaking before an audience which
overflowed Arts 100, Abdullah Yusuf All, visiting Canada under auspices of the National Council if Education, gave an Inspiring address on
"University Education and Life in
India." Mr. AU is an outstanding
aithority in the Moslem world and
has achieved International reputation
a* a linguist. He speaks thirteen
different languages, and his English
Is flawless. The big audience received him with obvious enthusiasm.
Following the course of University
development in India, the speaker
it-marked that the first three Instl-
Unions had been founded In a time
of crisis (1858). At this time the
younger generation in England was
finding Oxford and Cambridge somewhat "old-fashioned" and as a result
the University ot London was
founded.
The new institution did away with
many old established customs. "Social life, and the discipline ot being
among a large number of selected
youths was considered an essential
part of education in Oxford and
Cambridge, as was religious training," said Mr. AU. Very little stress
was laid on examinations.
But the younger generation's revolutionary ideas were very different
and as a result of prime Importance,
the new universities In India took
their tone from London—not from
Oxford or Cambridge.
"In India we find the three new
universities developing along nonresidential Unas. They were in addition non-denomlnatlonal and gave     That there is a strong and ever-

training. Finally, they considered
examinations of great importance,"
declared the  speaker.
"It began to be apparent at the
end of the last century, students living in external quarters were not
conducive of the true university
spirit. This spirit I take to be the
spirit of youth wanting to explore
new fields of art and science, and
examine and modify tradition. Youth
should have the right to accept or
reject so much of tradition, but no
more." This, Mr. All considered to
be the true University Spirit.
There was arising a new sense of
nationalism  at  the time,   and   the
foundations   Of   education    became
correspondingly broader.   The eleven

tain the peace of the world was
demonstrated last Tuesday night in
Arts 100 when the Government was
defeated on the measure, "Resolved:
that the present Sino-Japanese situation demonstrates the futility of
the principles on which the League
of Nations is founded." Despite the
vitriolic censorship of the League for
it* failure to solve the Oriental
Question, its principles were warmly
defended by the Opposition who
pointed out that the present situation is the first to baffle the. League
ln Its twelve years of existence.
The leaders of the Government,
Ernest Brown and George Dolson,
maintained that the principles of the
League were contrary to human nature and showed from a brief survey of history that all attempts to
preserve peace in the past had been
climaxed by a war. They declared
that economic forces as they operated under the present system, made
war a necessary part of national
policy and consequently any efforts
to organize for peace were foredoomed to failure.
The Opposition, led by Vic Dryer
and Andrew Guthrie, contended that
although the League had not yet
settled the Oriental Crisis, there was
still a possibility of settlement and
termed any criticism of the League
at the present time as very premature. They questioned whether the
League would be a failure in view
of its work in the reconstruction of
Austria and its success in efforts to
improve health and working conditions throughout the world; and In
conclusion pleaded that the League
be given a fair chance to prove its
worth.

WEDNESDAY EVENING
Tomorrow night Nlel Perry and
Victor Dryer, both Honor students
In Economics, will debate against a
team of two chosen from Ralph Mc-
Cullough, John Rudin, and Ronald
Hewitt, from Willamette University.
The subject will be, "Resolved that
Congress should enact legislation to
provide for the centralized control
of Industry (constitutionality
waived"), and the battle will take
place in the Auditorium of King
Edward High School at 8:00 p.m.
The resolution was debated here
some weeks ago at a meeting of the
Parliamentary Forum, when the gov-
eiiment which was upholding the
negative, gained the decision.
The visiting team come with
the highest qualifications, one of
their members having been on the
winning side of every debate in
which he has participated this year.
The other members are all experienced men, since they are either
law students or taking a major in
public speaking.
Shades of the old days when debates used to net the Alma Mater

Farming Interests Oppose
Drastic Cut In Agriculture
Protest against reduction in budget
which would prevent the Faculty of
Agriculture from functioning efficiently was voiced by 150,000 inhabitants of British Columbia, Monday
night at a regular meeting of the
Board of Governors. Delegates present represented all farming interests
in the Province, and stood opposed to

this year. He and Midge Ellis are
going to provide many complications
to keep audiences all over the prov- ■
ince keyed up to the highest pitch
in Sir James M. Barrie's whimsical
comedy, "Alice-Slt-by-the-Fire."
Dr. Vance, representing Senate's
Special Committee, declared that the
allocation of funds recommended by
the Committee were "fairly equitable," and that there was no desire
to wipe out Agriculture.   He pointed
out that "Agriculture might be a very
strong department of Applied Science, i
and later might be put back on to its I
former basis." As matters stand, the
farm will have to be leased, and reductions made, because fair allocation
of the grant will not permit the faculty to operate.
Resolutions of Student Publicity
Committee and of Agricultural Undergraduate Society were read, and
delegates of the latter body received.
The students wanted to know how,
with the reduced grant, they could
complete their education on the same
standard as anticipated.

Varied Views
On Situations
"To the students ot the U. B. C.
and high schools of Vancouver" was
the title of a pamphlet distributed
last week by the Youth section of
the United Front Council. After objecting to the Bennett government,
section 98 of the criminal code, and
curtailment of the university, It announced a meeting of the youth section on Sunday in the Ukrainian
Labor Temple.
Informed of this, the news manager's "nose for news" quivered, and
we descended upon the meeting to
find out what there was In It of interest to university students.
Having a two-day's growth of
beard upon my face, I thought I
might not be conspicuous, but found
that everyone else was clean shaven.
Speakers gave some lnteresun
side-lights on the world situatl r-
littie matters such aa the Institution
of martial law in some Japanese
cities, that one does not read in the
press. Scorn was heaped upon "social democrats" and Dr. Lyle Telford and others who hav? been trying to give a progressive lead were
attacked.
A young high-school student got
up and charged that the communists
were dividing the socialist ranks
rather than helping to achieve a
"united front." He defended the,
"gentlemen"  attacked.
A delegate then declared that we
need no longer use the term gentleman. The chairman and others directed a hot attack on the student,
who seemed well able to keep his
end up. It was stated that the communist party is not one of violence
but it was made clear that it does
not believe in proceeding by constitutional means. A resolution against
section 98 of the criming' code was
passed.
The meeting proceeded to review
the events of the recenf. Hunger
March.
The news manager and 1 concluded
that the expected story was not to
be had. The "United Front" council appears to want unity on thc
be sis of everyone subscribing to its
program, and scorns "spittoon philosophers" like the members of the
Independent Labor Party and the
"Intellectuals." Such an attitude is
not likely to impress students.—R. G.
they have been turning out regularly. Even with a practice debate already behind them, they will not be'
in such good shape as the visitors
who have now debated the subject
three times.
Judging by the wealth of argument
brought forth for inspection at the
Parliamentary Forum when the motion was debated, those who attend
arc promised a lively and interesting
debate. Pigs Two

TUESDAY, MARCH 1,1932
OOOD INTENTIONS
The recent resolution of the executive of
the Student Publicity Committee in pigging
a vote of confidence in Senate ag a result of
its acceptance of the Senate Committee report
hag met with opposition among tha students
of Agriculture. The Aggies feel that they
•hould have been consulted before a resolution
purporting to come from a united student body
supported a report which will destroy Agriculture as a faculty.
There can be no doubt whatever that tht
Student Publicity Committee acted in absolute good faith when tho decision was made,
It considered tht intereetg of Agriculture sad
believed that they could beet be served by tho
plans which Senate proposed. However, there
is equally little doubt that it acted without
having definite proof that the same quality of
agricultural teaching could be given in a department of the Applied Science Faculty ae
could be furnished by a faculty of Agriculture.
The Faculty of Agriculture ig reported aa having stated that $65,000 ia the minimum upon
which it could operate. Members of Senate
have told the Ubyssey that aa a department of
Applied Science the teaching in Agriculture
would coat only $25,000. What the Aggie atudenta want to know and what they think the
Student Publicity Committee should have
found out before it supported Senate's resolution is, why the same teaching can be given
for $40,000 less as a department than as a
faculty?
Under Senate's original premise that the
primary function of the University is teaching
it seems inevitable that the quality of agricultural teaching is bound to surfer and this in
itself should be sufficient justification for Senate's move. Nevertheless, the Aggies are surely
justified in asking either for proof that the
teaching will not suffer or that the fact that it
will, should be made public.
The Student Publicity Committee justifies
its somewhat precipitate action by saying that
a definite stand was necessary without delay
so that the student case might be presented in
Victoria. However, the fact remains that, having been appointed to express student wishes,
it was up to them to be sure that their action
was in accordance with student opinion.
NO MORE MAL-DE-MER
.. The Graduating Class, numbering about
two hundred and fifty, is going to find its functions at the end of the term decidedly curtailed, to judge from the number of people who
have not as yet paid their class fees. It has
become a tradition to close the four-year sojourn at college with a final round of social
activities, where classmates bid one another
, sad farewell, and cover up their sorrow with a
mask of gaiety.
The class of '32, however is either too economically depressed or too blase to care about
taking a respectable farewell of their Alma
Mater and the mingled care and pleasure of
an_undergraduate life. Nearly a hundred members have failed to pay the necessary fee. The
greatly desired boat-trip is the first to go, for
it is obvious that the somewhat limited finances
of the faithful group who have paid their fees
will not extend so far. And what is graduation without a boat trip?
It seems sad that this class, about to be precipitated into the chilly clutch of an unusually
unsympathetic world, is not to have even the
memory of those last carefree days to sustain
them in their attempt to earn a meagre living.
Exams will come and exams will go, but this
class will celebrate the last session with the
hated bogies by attending Baccalaureate service and sipping many teas. We weep with
them.
The McGill Daily's story of our recent campaign had some extraordinary features, as
"News and Views" recorded. So did the Toronto "Varsity's" account. It stated that $250
has been lopped off our grant! The Varsity
gave us much publicity, even reprinting one
of the Student Publicity Bureau's newspaper
advertisements.
So far as the Senate is concerned, the Fac-
alty of Agriculture was thrown overboard laat
Wednesday night, and will become a department of Applied Science.
The Downfall Chairmen of the three com-
Of Agriculture mitttees of the Student Publicity Bureau (committeemen
not being consulted) took it upon themselves
to pass a resolution supporting this plan. Today the attitude of the Board of Governors
will be known.
Even if the work of the Faculty of Agriculture must be curtailed drastically, what is
the point in making the Faculty a department
of Applied Science? The Faculty has fought
hard for its existence, and does not appear
to be getting the consideration it merits. Submerging it in Applied Science will injure its
spirit and prestige—indeed, the prestige of the
University will suffer greatly. Furthermore,
It is doubtful that Agriculture's former position would be restored as readily, whtn that
is possible. What economy is effected by making Agriculture s department of another faculty? A good case for this stop has not been
made public
The Student Publicity Bureau hu been
functioning on behalf of tht whole gtudent
body, and working for the whole Univerglty.
What right, then, did its chairmen havt to give
support to tht Senate's plan for tht downfall
of tht Faculty of Agriculture? Tht resolution
in which thia was done offered no reasons, expressing merely an affecting trust ln tht wisdom of tht Senate. I do not think that student
opinion approves of this business.
• e   e
"Crumbs from tht College Bred" made a
kindly reference to "Pipe and Pen" in tht last
issue. This reminds me—as no doubt was the
intention—that I havt not yet
Muek Page taken cognizance of the new
Phenomena Muck page column.   I have not
* been unaware of the phenomenon,
but have had important matters to write about
lately. Well, T. H., if you want my opinion,
here it is (open your mouth and shut your
eyes): The name of your column is quite clever
and your comments as witty as I have ever
happened to notice on the Muck page. Readers
of "Pipe and Pen," when they have nothing
better to do, are recommended to glance at
"Crumbs" for relaxation. Often, too, there is
more truth than humor injthe crumb-collector's
tray. (Approved, T.H., and dismissed with a
pat on the back.)
As for the latest precocity on page three,
"Your Baby and Mine," I don't suppose followers of it read "Pipe and Pen" anyway—
which is comment enough.
•    e    e
A Student League for Social Reconstruction
has been formed at the University of Toronto.
Its program, outlined in its publication, The
Soap Box, reads: "We recognise the
Student bankruptcy of our present social
Socialists order. We advocate: Socialism of
all economic activity. Socialism of
all wealth. Academic freedom of speech. Repeal of all legislation restricting freedom of
speech, press and assembly. Removal of interference with student publications and organisations. Reconstruction of the educational
system. Abolition of armaments. Unemployment insurance and sickness insurance. Active
organised student participation in public life."
This movement in good old U. of T. makes
one rejoice. It is a sign of intellectual vision
and vigor. Undoubtedly it will engender bitter
antagonism in some quarters, and the end may
come suddenly. Whatever happens, it is a
courageous move, and one in the right direction. '
* *   *
The affirmative on "Resolved, that Congress
should enact legislation to provide for the
centralized control of industry" will be taken
by Victor Dryer and Neil Perry
Central against Willamette College at King
Control   Edward Auditorium   Wednesday
night. Both U.B.C. speakers are
good, and both are honor students in economics. They should be able to make a strong
case.
The last debate occasioned comment on the
few students present. It is to be hoped that
more will attend this one. They will be sure
to hear a discussion of unusual interest, dealing
with the present situation in the United States.
Those who neither debate nor attend debates
are not getting the most out of their University
life.
e    *    *
The short comments appearing in "Pipe and
Pen" last time were not mine, but should be
blamed on the editors.

Correspondence
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
At the meeting of the Alma Mater
Society last Friday noon I stated that
the proposed ellglblUty rules left an
opening for 'tramp athletes.'' I am
sorry that I made this remark, because it has bean taken as a personal reference by certain people on
the campus. Had I say idea that
there were registered at this University, men whose status Is so questionable that they must take such
a remark as a personal reference, 1
would net have mentioned it 1
stated at the time, and I stUl maintain, that the proposed ndss are a
distinct lowering of the standards
which the Students set for themselves two years ago. For the last
month or more we have been ap
pealing to the people of the province
to give us financial support sufflc
went to carry the University st its
present academic standing. I think
we should do everything In our
power to keep the scholastic standard of the student body as high as
'possible.
It was pointed out to me on Friday, that my own scholastic standing would not be up to much this
year. 1 am quite aware of this fact.
The members of the Committee upon
which I have been working this year
have felt that Ihe issue at stake was
too Important to consider personalities. They have felt, and I have
felt with them, that the work was
sufficiently important to disregard
any losses which we, personally,
might have to suffer. I have been
thinking this over and I have changed
my mind. I do not consider that the
students of the University of British
Columbia are worth the thankless
work which Is done for them by
Students' Council or by anybody
'else. From this point on, my per
sonal affairs will come first and
car. assure Mr. Osborne that my
marks tills term wiU discredit neither himself nor the rest of the student body.
Yours sincerely,

Twenty Receive
Dismissal From
University Employ
Twenty members of the University
felt the effects of the wide-sweeping
scythe of economy when they received a month's notice last Saturday. The janitorial staff will be reduced from twelve to six, while all
the men working on the farm, eight
in number, will join the ranks of the
unemployed. The Storekeeper, the
painter, and one nightwatchman will
all be allowed to find other work
when March 31 rolls round. The
dismissals also Include one of the
power house workers and the two
men who look after the greenhouses
and generaUy the work of the Department of Horticulture. This Is
the first tangible effect to be felt
on the campus of the reduction of
revenue with which the University
Is faced. There have been many
rumours of professors who have intended to depart from here, but the
Ubyssey has been unable to substantiate any of these.

Chinese Situation
Is Getting Serious
 T
By Your Correspondent
What-ho, Feb. 29. (IDP).—Shanghai shimmied today beneath the thunder of Japanese Big Berthas and Upper Berthas
situated thirteen miles northwest of here on the banks of the
Wabash. A smashing counter attack in the Chuchinchow region by the Chinese late last night resulted In a ten-yard gain
for the home team, and early morning reports indicate that the
line of scrimmage hasn't shifted since. The referee, the League
of Nations, is trying to call time out but no one la listening to
him, reports said.
A troupe of ten million Japanese^
soldiers, armed to the teeth, feU
upon a Uttle defenceless town In the
Sing-Sing district but ware repulsed
with heavy losses. Chinese reports
show thgt the Chinese sector Is facing the blistering fire of the grim
Japanese advance. They seem to
grim and like it. The Inevitable
Japanese "push" may come at any
tints if the Japanese pull together,
fen Chinese airplanes were shot
down in the Chsu-tsten-so-so sector. The airplane score is now SI-24
ter the Japanese but anything may
happen yet.
A despatch from Japan to Geneva
fnplsinlm that country's stand in the
Oriental conflagration reads, "Japan
must defend herself and her clti-
sens.  We must protect our rights,"
Geneva also was in receipt of a
despatch from China. It reads.
''China must defend herself and her
eitisens. We must protest our rights."
Latest developments indicate prolonged trouble In the Orient with
thousands of Chinese and Japanese
soldiers being killed, billions of dollars spent en new armaments, air
attacks, bombardments and hand to
hand fighting. However, European
and American statesmen doubt If
the matter will ever develop Into a
war between the two countries.
Both Japan and China have consented to the appointment of a committee to investigate the Manchurian
situation. The commltee leaves for
China within six months and will
probably submit their report within
the next twenty years.

"Finances of the Combined Graduating classes of '32 are In a sad

hundred students have failed to pay
their class fees. This shortage of

the annual Boat Trip from the agenda of the class social events. Those
who have not paid still have that
privilege and are asked to get In
touch with Ralph Fletcher or Don
Morgan and do so at once.

Varsity Starts Basketball Playoffs Wed. Evening
Canadian Champions Open Drive
In Defense of Montreal Trophy
At Arena Against Adanac Squad
Mclntyre
Both     are
ease.
Ed Armstrong, who now holds down
the pivot position, is one of the most
nonchalant players on the squad, yet
his deadly long shooting and his work
on rebounds make him invaluable.
Probably no other player on the Varsity aggregation with tiie exception of
Captain Osborne, has the reputation
that Pi Campbell earned
last season. He is the
most sensational hoop
artist under the basket
that the Lower Mainland
has produced in many
years, and his tricky
Bardsley snots nave won innumerable contests for U.B.C. Ken Wright,
the other forward, is making an excellent job of his first season in senior
company. After starting the season
under Adanac colors Ken switched to
Varsity and has become an important
cog on both attack and defense.
The subs are also strong on the
Blue and Gold squad this season and
can be relied on to turn in a first
class performance when called on.
Laurie Nicholson has had a lot of
experience at centre, and will alternate with Armstrong in the pivot
position. He is stronger on the attack than as a defense player, although he has shown remarkable
improvement lately in the latter
branch of the game. Jimmy Bardsley, who until a few weeks ago,
was a member of the Varsity senior
B team, has proven a "find" since
his elevation to the higher company.
He is shooting with as much accuracy as any of the veterans, and will
probably be given an opportunity to
get into the contest tomorrow. Another newcomer to senior ranks,
Jack Waimsley has been improving
steadily during the season and is
playing smart ball at this time. Gordon Root completes the student
line-up.

Nine Eligible Players To Carry Blue and
Gold Against Vancouver and District
League Winners—Students Optimistic
As Crucial Series Approaches
With all of his nine hoopsters in first class condition as the
result of many weeks of serious training, Coach Arnold Hen-
derson will send the Blue and Gold Basketball squad of the University of British Columbia into the first game of the playoff
series that may eventually lead io another Canadian championship. Against the winners of the Vancouver and District
league, the Dominion titleholders will have their first opportunity of showing the speed and accuracy of the Henderson-
built hoop machine.
At either the Vancouver Amateur Athletic club's gym
which adjoins Athletic Park, or In*
the recently diminished floor of the
Queen's Park Arena at New Westminster, the collegians will take the
floor against Shores or Adanacs tomorrow evening in the opening contest
of the Lower Mainland playoffs for
the right to meet Victoria in the Provincial senior finals. For the first
time since the coast students downed
St. Catharines Orads last April to win
the National crown, the B.C. Hoopsters are entering a crucial game.
With two members of his squad getting their baptism In senior fixtures
on Wednesday,
Henderson will
have to depend to
some extent on the
regulars to get out
in front from the
start.
All of the Varsity
hoopsters   are   in
        excellent shape for
Henderson me tilt The bad
ankles and knees have all healed and
any of the nine men are prepared to
go 40 minutes in the contest. On Monday they stole a move on the V. and
D. by working in a stiff practice at
V.A.C. Today Henderson will allow
his proteges to rest, with practice
being confined to shooting fouls and
long shots.
The Blue and Gold defense, combining Doug.
Mclntyre and Bob Osborne, Is one of the
smoothest that has been
seen in these parts for
many years,
extremely fast, and
Osborne has all the height necessary
for retrieving rebounds. Mclntyre
is noted for his brilliant floor work.
He is a smart dribbler, shoots well,
and his diminutive size makes it possible for him to elude his check with
Wednesday Is the day, 9 p.m. is
the zero hour, and either V.A.A.C
gym or the New Westminster Arena
is the place. Better write it down
so you'll remember it, and don't
make any mistake about being there,
because if ever the support of the
entire student body was needed It's
right now. At the above time and
place, the University of British Columbia basketball team Is going to
start a campaign to keep the Canadian championship and the Montreal
Cup in West Point Orey. At the
outside tilers^ are only six games that
will be played in the Lower Mainland, and there may be only three,
so don't begin to think of waiting
until the later games come around;
they're  going  to  be  played   in  the
East.

Coach Arnold Henderson took It
on the chin, or rather the ankle, at
Monday's practice, and is now limping around with the member badly
sprained. It was a tough break for
the Varsity mentor just Co-ed and
all that, and we sure wish him a
speedy recovery. Arnold has the
boys in first class condition, and
their last workout before the series
starts, which was held at V.A.C. on
Monday morning left little to be
desired. They are all set to go
apainst the Vancouver and District
league winners, and If their word Is
worth anything at all there will be
a Blue and Oold team going East in
the Dominion playdowns.
• •  •
Every once In a while we run across
an outstanding example of the kind of
spirit that makes Vanity jeame.
Coach Henderson on Saturday Informed hla hoop aspirants that there
would be a practice at 7 a.m. on
Monday morning. Now, living In
Vancouver It's hard enough to make
these morning workouts, but Ken
Wright, the stellar forward on tiie
U.B.C. quintette, halls from New
Westminster. Monday morning Ken
was up at 5, caught the 5:40 tram and
beat the rest of the boys to the V.A.C.
gym by twenty minutes.
• •   •
We like to see that type of enthusiasm and it bodes no good for
the winners of the Vancouver and
District circuit. And in spite of the
cagey Adanac move in cutting the
length of their floor 10 feet in the
hope of winning the V and D title,
we  stand  prepared to put  our last
shirt on the students.
• *   *
Al Pike, the genial Canadian Rugby strip manager, also earned the
right to enter the Hall of Fame of
our Alma Mater by voluntarily surveying the oval so that the gridders
would have a field of legal size on
which  to play.

Tomorrow, the track men get under way in the annual interfaculty
contests. It is unfortunate that the
meet comes on the same day as the
opening contest of the basketball
series as we cannot give it the publicity that it really deserves, But
don't forget it's free   so plan to be
on the stadium at 3 p.m.

And Saturday brings another McKechnie Cup fixture, which promises to be one of the biggest contests

Grid Team Drops
Game To Flash
Meraloma Crew
Dick Farrlngton's youthful Can
adian grid squad tell 13-0 at the
Varsity oval Saturday afternoon before an onslaught of bucks and end
runs by Bill McAdams and Reg.
Meek of the Meraloma Club.
The orange and black team played
rings around the students who never
once hit the form that baffled the
V. A. C. team last Saturday. Meralomas showed their superiority from
the outset, running back kicks by
means of end runs that left the Varsity ends flat-footed. Joe Dwyer got
away some nice punts that saved the
students time and again. Oeorge
Henderson succeeded in making
yards on one of the best runs of
the quarter, but neither team could
get close enough to score.
A few good gains put Meralomas
In position for a kick and Bill McAdams placed the ball so far behind
the line Jack Steele could not run
it out. A fumble by Varsity gave
the Clubbers possession on the five
-yard line. On their second attempt
Rea Meek found a hole ln the Varsity line and went over for the first
touchdown. Soon after this Steele
tumbled a kick behind the deadline
and a Meraloma man fell on it for
another touch. At the end of the
third quarter Meralomas were 11
points up on Varsity.
For awhile the students began to
show some life, O'Shaughnessy,

INTER-FACULTY MEET
ON CAMPUS TOMORROW
With the outlook for good weather conditions very favorable, track men at the University of British Columbia are put*
ting the finishing touches on the long training grind on the
stadium Wednesday. The contests, which serve to show the
strength of the Blue and Gold cinder team, will also give the
athletes an opportunity to see how well they are going in competition. For five or six weeks the squad has been working
out regularly, and if prevailing weather conditions continue
several of the old marks should be wiped out in the contests.

Comments From Here and There
on Intet'Class Sports
BY DAY WASHINGTON
The women haven't finished their
interclass basketball schedule yet, and
in all probability the final game will
not be played until well on in
March. Arts '32 defeated Arts '33
15-4 in a game last Wednesday afternoon, but the game between Arts
'35 and Education, scheduled for last
Thursday, was postponed until this
Thursday at S o'clock.
Owing to a change in the play
off'schedule, It will be necessary to
play two more games after the
game between Arts '35 and Education in Thursday. The winners of
this contest will be tied with Arts
'32 and '33, and the new schedule
calls for a knockout series between
these three teams. Excitement is
running high among the competing
teams and we prophesy that some
great basketball will be served up
before the final game becomes his
tory.   Drop over to the gym and see
for yourself.

The Arts '32-Arts '33 game last
Wednesday was one of the hardest
fought games in the women's league;
and although the score was 15-4 for
the Senior ladies it does not indicate that the play was one-sided.
Mary Fallis opened the score for
Arts '32 near the end of the first
quarter, but Jo Henning evened the
count immediately when she popped
in a basket for '33. Play was hard
and even in this period.
Arts '32 got away early in the second quarter to find the basket twice
and put them ahead 6-2. Arts '33
played hard but couldn't catch the
seniors and a foul against them made
the  half-time score 7-2.
Ruth Whitbeck scored the only
two points for Arts '33 in the third
quarter of the game, while the Arts
'32 ladies found the hoop for four
more baskets to end the scoring 15-4.
Mary Fallis was the best individual
player,  scoring  13  of  the  15  points
for Arts '32.

The last week of the men's interclass basketball schedule produced
some of the fastest and most exciting ball the local fans have witnessed this year.
The Aggies all but took Arts '33
into camp last Tuesday noon. The
game     was     touch - and - go     from
the beginning, with first Arts 'ol and
then Aggies leading by one point.
Sensational shooting added to the
excitement of the nlp-and-tuck contest, and things sot so hot that even
the referee forgot everything and allowed the boys to brinij in some
Canadian rugby rules, without a
whistle.
The score was 23 all when the
final whistle sounded and after a
short rest the teams entered on a
final five minute overtime period.
Arts '33 found their stride in this
canto and out-scored the farmers by
10-2, to give them the gai.ie. Tervo
and Lucas were best for the winners,  while  Dave Turner  disported
himself admirably for Aggies.

Arts '33 lost their last league game
by one point last Thursday when
Science '34 took them into camp 20-
19, in the most exciting goive of the
league.
The engineers scored five baskets
before the juniors could get going
and half time found the score 14-6.
Randy Tervo of Arts '.1.1 took things
in hand in the second canto, with
the result that with but one minute
of play left, the engineers were on
the short end of a 19-18 count. McDougal of Science '34 made himself
quite consplcious by dropping the
ball  through  the  hoop and  turning
defeat into victory.

Science '35 took Aggies into camp
in the last game of the schedule on
Saturday. We didn't see the game
ourselves but from what we heard

This week the semi-finals and finals will be played off in the men's
section. Two teams tied for top
place in both sections of the league,
which will necessitate two more
games to determine the two finalists.
Science '34 wil play Arts '32 today,
while Science '33 will tackle Arts '.15 (
on Wednesday. The winners of these |
two games will hook up in the final j
match on Thursday. We strongly

POST MORTEMS
With Stu Keate
The Senior City Canadian Rugby
squad certainly looked like "Tramp
Athletes" when they left the gridiron the other day. A vertible lake
covered the south side of the field.
Don't be surprised if the ends and
wing men show up with water wings
at the next game.

"The worst bunch of tacklers I've
seen in 6 years at Varsity," was the
only comment of Doc Burke.

The campus was a veritable hive
of athletic activity Saturday afternoon. Many atudenta were seen pursuing the elusive pellet on the University course; fratmen were practising softball in front of the Endowment Lands Building; the English Ruggers had taken possession of
the soccer field; the Canadian grid
fixture was in fu", swing on the
oval; both tennis, courts were full;
ten men and three coaches were getting prepared for the first game of
thc basketball series which takes
place this week. Even caf-loungin»
would have been reduced to a minimum on as fine a day as Satruday.
Senior Soccer
Team Lose 1-0
In Smart Game
Once more the Senior Soccer team
have gone down to a 1-0 defeat, this
time at the hands of South Hill
Army and Navy Club, at Wilson
Park, but the loss is no disgrace, as
the Varsity boys were more than
value for a win.
The game started with Varsity
playing ten men, through the ab-
sense of McDougal with an injured
leg. After ten minutes, South Hill
who had the advantage of a strong
sun and a steady breeze at their
backs, scored the only goal of the
game, a result of a moment's misunderstanding in the Blue and Oold
defence. Shortly after, Howie Wright
arrived to complete the line-up, and
the teadi set out to remedy the deficit. However, after only about five
minutes at full strength, the team
was further weakened by the loss of
Jock Waugh, who was forced to
leave the game with a badly twisted
ankle. Varsity, again playing with
ten men, continued to force the pace
but were having difficulty in controlling the light ball. Half-time
came with the score 1-0.
After the oranges, the Blue and
Gold squad started a determined offensive which lasted throughout the
whole period. Within five minutes,
Kozoolin fired in a shot from the
penalty area which the lanky South
Hill custodian just managed to fist
over the bar. The Varsity attack
continued steadily, with few replies
from the Army and Navy veterans
who were forced to play an nightman defence. After about twenty
minutes of play, the Hillmen broke
clear on a surprise attack, but Frattinger made a wonderful save, diving across the goal-mouth to fist the
ball behind. The resulting corner
was quickly cleared and Varsity resumed their bombardment of the
Hillman's defence. Only once during the rest of the game did the
South Hill forwards take the ball
into Varsity's danger zone. The last
ten minutes of the game, saw every
forward on the Varsity side harassing the opposing goalie. The line
was working well together, despite
the fact that Jimmy Smith had twist-

stars are taking the sport seriously,
and the results tomorrow should be
close and interesting. Max Stewart
is well rated in the broad jump, with
Rolf Forsythe being the favorite in
the High Jump. Agnew, the freshman weight star, is favored to cop
in the Shot Put, Discus and Javelin,
and stands an excellent chance tp take
the Pole Vault as well which should
prove enough for'one afternoon. By
winning these events he could easily
take the aggregate honors for the
meet, as other versatile competitors
are not frequently found at U.B.C.
Bill Stott looks good in the stprints,
although Max Stewart may press him
in boh the century and 220. The 440,
880 and three-mile are anybody's although competition in the latter event
promises to be extremely keen.

U. B. C. lost to Ex-Magee 0-2. The
game was very ragged with many
off-sides as U. B. C. were two short.
In the first half, the play was quite
even, Magee scoring just before the
whistle. Magee played well, but
U. B. C, although they worked hard,
were Ineffective. Lacking a forward and a half, the team hadn't
tl e necessary offensive. In the second half, U. B. C. were hard pressed.
Tlie backs, Elmi Teppo and Irene

very good

Varsity sprang a surprise when
they held North Vancouver Grads to
two goals gaining one themselves.
The game was fairly even, although
Varsity lacked the combination of
North Vancouver. Margaret Duncan

tho only goal. Isabel MacArthur also
played well.
