Alma Mater Meeting Called
To Discuss Drive For Funds
THE President of the Alma Mater Society announces that an
Alma Mater meeting will be held in the Auditorium at noon
on Friday, January 16. The meeting is called at the request of the Students' Council to discuss what the undergraduate
body will do to supplement the $5,800 given by the Faculty and
Board of Governors for work on playing fields this winter.
The letter from the Faculty Association, announcing its action, reads as follows:
Governors Kill Two Birds With One Stone
At a time when citizens of Vancouver were making voluntary contributions towards the relief of unemployment, members
of the Faculty Association felt that they too should contribute.
They have done their best to find a way of providing work for
unskilled labour by which something worth while can be accomplished for the University. The most urgent need of the
University which could be met, in part at least, by the employment of casual labour lay in the preparation of the site for playing fields, or for a stadium. However, even the simplest plans
for fields on which major games could be played involved the expenditure of sums which were large, relatively to those which the
Association could hope to raise from its members. Much of the
work was not of a character to give employment for unskilled
labour. It would be very discouraging to begin work which could
not be carried to completion within a reasonable time. The end
of examination week was not a time at which the Student Body
could be consulted and its co-operation assured. But in spite of
these considerations the Faculty Association, at a well attended
meeting, unanimously decided to undertake the venture and make
a start in providing playing fields, relying on the co-operation of
other bodies to carry the worlc to completion.
Faculty to Expend Sum on Unskilled Labor
By voluntary contributions, spread in most cases over the
whole of 1931, members of the Association hav.e raised n f".nd of
over $2,500. The Board of Governors has very generously cooperated in two ways, both essential to the execution of the plan.
The Governors have agreed to administer the work and to spend
the sum subscribed at once, and to collect the money by monthly
instalments from those members who wish to make their contributions in this way. And they have provided from University
funds enough money to make it possible to begin work at once
with the assurance that unemployment relief will be provided to
at least the full amount of the contributions made by members
of the Association. This means that the cost of materials and of
such part of the work as is done mainly by machinery will be
defrayed from the funds furnished by the University. ' In order
to make this arrangement practicable work is being undertaken
on the University Mall where unskilled labour can conveniently
be employed in intervals during which it is not required on the
site of the playing fields,
In this way a beginning has been made with an urgent task,
but this beginning will be almost useless unless others are ready
to carry on the work. It is often the first step which is the most
difficult to take. The Faculty Association felt that it could take
this first step but only by prompt and vigorous action, which
could be justified only by faith in the ability of the Student Body
to take full advantage of the opportunity created. The Association is confident that its faith will be justified. But its task ends
here, the initiative now lies with the Student Body, and on their
efforts wil depend whether next winter's games can be played
on the University grounds.
Chairman of Committee of the Faculty Association
To Debate Alberta Team
According to Mr. Williams several
small roles in the cast of the opera
"The Pirates of Penzance" have still
to be filled before the entire list of
principals can be named. Try-outs
for these parts, which are the characters of Isobel (soprano), the Sergeant of Police (basso), and Samuel
(tenor), will take place Wednesday
noon on the stage. No applications
need be made.
All members of the Society are
asked to watch the notice boards
carefully for rehearsal notices, and to
be present at every rehearsal in
which they are included.
Featuring several prominent city
artists, the Musical Society of the
university will present its first noon-
hour recital of the Spring term in the
Auditorium, Thursday at 12.10.
Among the artists to be presented
will be Charlie Shaw, violinist, and
Ira Swartz, pianist. Both of these
men are well-known to the students,
having appeared in several previous
performances at U.B.C. Another artist of note wil] be Mrs. Hodgeson, contralto, of North Vancouver.
Several excerpts from the Spring
production of the Musical Society,
"The Pirates of Penzance," will be
rendered by members of the Society,
under the direction of C. Haydn Williams.
Junior Officers
Plan Class Hop
Arrangements for the annual class
party formed the chief topic of discussion at an Arts '32 executive meeting held Thursday.
The general opinion expressed at
the meeting was that application be
sent to the Students' Council immediately for the evening of Friday,
February 20. It was felt that the
Alma Academy including Len Chamberlain's Orchestra would be most
suitable for the evening.
It was suggested that the party
this year take the form of a novelty
dance. Definite plans will be announced at the earliest possible date.
All members of Arts '32, who have
not paid their fees are reminded that
February 16, the date set for the
class draw, is positively the last day
for payment of fees. No member
will be admitted to the class party
unless fees are paid.
In connection with the fees, a definite drive is now being conducted,
commencing Monday, January 12.
Tables will be placed In the halls after
the above date and fees are payable
to any member of the executive.
Meeting of Arts '31 in Arts 100

Jack Sargent and Jordan Guy who will uphold the University of B. C.'s
forensic reputation when they encounter the University of Alberta in the
"away" contest of the Western Intercollegiate Debating Union, January 16.
Sargent and Guy will argue on the negative side of the resolution "That
Dominion status be granted to India immediately."   Both men have taken
Sart in inter-class debates and are prominent members of Varsity's Debat-
tg Union.   Earl Vance and William Whiemster will meet the University of
Manitoba in U. B. C.'s "home" debate and will defend the affirmative side
A luncheon at the Hudson's Bay
store concluded a tour of the newspaper plant of the Vancouver Sun
made by twenty members of the
Publications Board during the noon
hour yesterday. The student journalists were the guests of Mr. R. J.
Cromie, publisher of the "Sun."
Dividing into two groups, the
visitors were conducted through the
various departments, and the steps
in the process of getting out a daily
paper were explained to them. At
one point Dr. Sedgewick was seen being subjected to a pressure of about
1,200 pounds per square inch, and at
another, with some trepidation, a
trip in an elevator was made.
Andy Lytle, Bob Bouchette and
others whose writings are familiar
to many, were met in the flesh, and
the editorial writers extended a welcome.
Following the inspection of the offices and plant, Mr. Cromie presided
at a luncheon in one of Hudson's Bay's
private dining rooms. Addressing
the gathering, he suggested that the
(Continued on page 3)
Debating at the University will
come to life with vigor in the next
few weeks when the Union, starting
off with the the Western Intercollegiate contests, January 16, will branch
out in a series of inter-class debates.
The teams chosen to represent Varsity against the prairie teams are
composed of Earl Vance and William
Whimster who will battle forensi-
cally against the University of Saskatchewan and Jack Sargent and
Jordan Guy who will meet the University of Alberta at Edmonton.
The subject that will be argued on
by both teams is "Resolved that Dominion status be given to India immediately." Varsity's away debaters
will uphold the negative while the
home team will battle on the affirmative side. Vance has had previous
intercollegiate experience and is also
a prominent member of the U. B. C.
Debating Union. Whimster has entered several inter-class meets and
has shown sufficient promise to be
chosen for the contest with Saskatchewan.

A Gift Prom The Gods
Committee Advises Campaign
To Complete Stadium Plan
THAT the student body conduct an organized campaign to
raise a fund for university stadium facilities is the recommendation of the committee appointed by the Students'
Council to consider what action might be taken to supplement
the $5,800 given by the Faculty Association and the Board of
Governors for the development of playing fields.
The committee, composed of Don Hutchison, President of
the Alma Mater Society, Charles Shultz, President of Men's
Athletics, and Ronald Grantham, Editor-in-Chief of the Publications Board, drew up a detailed report which will be presented
to the Students' Council on Wednesday night. The Council has
called an Alma Mater meeting, to be held at noon on Friday in
the Auditorium, at which the matter will be placed before the
Immediate Undertaking Declared Desirable
The committee's report declares that the immediate undertaking of the project is desirable in order that it may provide
a measure of unemployment relief. In this way students of the
University of British Columbia can take part in the task of providing work for the thousands who are unemployed this winter.
Recommending that an objective be set and raised by voluntary subscription, the report goes on to suggest an organization
for the campaign. The drive for funds would be directed by a
large committee composed of the President and Vice-President of
Men's Athletics, the President and Vice-President of Women's
Athletics, the Editor-in-Chief of the Publications Board, the
Presidents and Vice-Presidents of all Arts classes, the Presidents
of all other classes, one representative each from the affiliated
Theological Colleges and from Education, and representatives of
both men and women doing post-graduate work.
According to the plan, class executives would undertake the
work of collecting contributions from class members. It is hoped
that in raising their voluntary quotas the various classes would
nrv* confine their efforts to the student body.
Campaign Would Be on Competive Basis
It is recommended that the whole campaign be on a competitive basis as between classes and faculties. The campaign would
start on Thursday, January 22, and close on February 5. Each
day the totals of classes and faculties would be written on a blackboard, which would be placed in the quad, and comparisons would
be made by the percentages of the respective quotas collected.
The suggestion is made that a committee consisting of representatives from Arts, Science and Agriculture be formed to
rouse student interest by means of snake parades and a pep
meeting. Another committee might be appointed to canvass the
city, another one to approach the Alumni, and a third group to
promote campus publicity by means of placards.
As a further method of raising funds, it is recommended
that a tax be levied on major social functions this term. The
possibly a smaller tax might be placed on other affairs. The
Council is asked to pass a budget of $25.00 for advertising material.
The committee's report calls for a campaign of fifteen days
for the purpose of raising enough money to complete permanent
field and track facilities and to erect bleachers to accomodate
spectators for home games.
Michigan "Daily"
Has New Home
"The Epsilog," a college publishers'
magazine received at the "Ubyssey"
office, recently carried a story announcing that a new $25,000 home
for student publications is being
erected at the University of Michigan.
It will be two stories high with makeup and press-room department, and a
crew of trained men will print the
"Daily." The monthly magazine and
the Annual will have separate offices,
furnished with easy chairs, davenports, tables, and benches for round
table discussions. Business and editorial offices of the "Daily" will be included in a single large room with
panelled walls and an arched plaster

Preliminary tryouts for the Spring
play of the Players' Club were held
on Wednesday, January 7. The play
chosen this year is "Mary, Mary,
Quite Contrary," a vivacious comedy
by St. John Ervine, whose "Second
Mrs. Fraser" has just finished an
eighteen months' run in London and
a year's run in New York. "Mary,
Mary" also had successful runs in
New York and London several seasons
An enlarged board of judges listened Wednesday while some forty members of the Players' Club tried out
for seven of the ten parts in the play.
Two or three are left in the running
for each part. The leading part is
"Mary Westlake" herself, a flighty
but charming actress, who spends a
somewhat disturbing week-end at the
home of a country vicar. Those who
have been watching the results of the
tryouts have been speculating with
interest on the possibilities of such
experienced and brilliant workers as
Ann Ferguson, who has been in more
than one Spring play, and Alice
Morrow, whose delightful comedy has
amused many at Christmas performances. But the interest centres on
Dorothy McKelvie, Arts '34, whose
performance at the tryout was pronounced outstanding.
As other parts, those still in the
running for Canon Considine are R.
I. Knight and H. Full; for Mrs. Con-
sindine, Mary Darnbrough, Betty
Buckland, and Ruth Bostock; for

The foagnanimous contribution of the Faculty Association
and the Board of Governors toward the development of playing
fields and the relief of unemployment revives the plan for con
■tructlng stadium facilities on the campus this winter. The let
tor announcing this action, reprinted in to-day's "Ubyssey," is a
challenge to the students to do their share. By carrying out the
project this term, the students will not only secure the needed
athletic accomodation, but will provide a further measure of unemployment relief. There Is every reason to expect that quick
action will be taken, and that the student body will respond to
the challenge that has been made.
A preliminary report on ways and means of raising money
Is published in this issue, and it is hoped that it will serve as a
basis for discussion. It is not yet definitely known what sum the
Council will suggest to the Alma Mater Society as an objective,
but $20,000 seems a fairly close estimate of the cost of completion of the whole project. If anyone thinks that this figure is
too great, let him show that the work could be done for less. As
a permanent stadium is not being considered at present, let us
understand what we are going to do: If there is to be a campaign
for playing fields only, there is no question of "stadium facilities,"
and a lower objective would be sufficient; if bleachers are desired,
then a greater effort must be made. Before any campaign is
started, It should be made clear exactly what it is hoped to achieve.
The success of the campaign depends on the enthusiasm of
the student body. If everyone will get behind it and do his utmost to raise money, university games can be played on the
campus .before university audiences next fall. The Faculty and
Board of Governors have done their part in furthering the project and in relieving unemployment. It is up to the students to
follow the lead that has been given.
Lines Addressed to 1851 Reporters
With its increased size, the "Ubyssey" hopes to give a more
extensive service to its readers, but as well as being representative of campus life, news should be accurate and timely. All
these aims the "Ubyssey" will strive to achieve, but it must be
remembered that those on the staff can give only their spare
time to the work. Greater co-operation from the student body
at large would be appreciated. Reports and announcements that
are turned in by other than regular reporters should be legibly
written, and correct and sufficient in their content, so that the
editors will not have to re-write them or to make investigations.
Any student is at liberty to turn in an item of interest that might
not otherwise be covered. Difficulty is often found in getting facts
and details from individuals who are interviewed. Those who
are approached for information are therefore asked to give all
the assistance they can.
Let the Facts Be Known
An uncontradicted or unconfirmed report of any significance
is not only a reflection on the efficiency of the press, but is an undesirable and potentially harmful thing in intself. If it is a matter of an unpleasant nature, there are always some who want
it "hushed up." "Hushing up" news is a policy that the "Ubyssey" has refused to adopt, believing that all news within its
province, if of sufficient importance, should be published—even
if it is unfavorable to individuals, organizations, or to the university. It is the "Ubyssey's" duty to place the facts before the
student body as accurately and as quickly as possible, in order
to prevent the circulation of rumors—which usually become
strangely twisted.
The "Ubyssey's" attitude toward the censorship of news is
well expressed in an article in a recent issue of the "Epsilog,"
a magazine for college publishers. It declares that real news
cannot be suppressed. "A good story that is fit to print is going
to get into print sooner or later." As far as outside newspapers
are concerned, the chances are nine out of ten that they will
give a much bigger play to a story if they know that an institution has been trying to suppress it. "Moreover, as one newspaper editorial writer recently pointed out, an unfavorable news
story published 'does not do one iota as much harm to an institution as does the whispered word passing from mouth to mouth
and becoming distorted with each telling . . . Rumors are bound
to be exaggerated and they do much greater injury than facts
placed in cold type where all may read'."
Off on the Wrong Foot
In cancelling the basketball dance that was an endeavor to
gain university support for the senior team, Council again set off
in the right direction but on the wrong foot. The members of
the Basketball Club were engaged in a worthy endeavor to retain
the use of the Varsity gymnasium for home games by means of providing double entertainment, games and a dance afterwards but
the councillors in stepping into the affair with their decree of
less social activities have thwarted the club's hopes.
It appears a foolish move in that it destroys the very ideal
that former councils have worked for, that is, a gymnasium where
the university might hold its home games. City authorities in
basketball have issued the ultimatum that unless the attendance
increases at the U. B. C. gymnasium the games now played on
the campus will be held in downtown gymnasiums.
The Editor,
"The Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
The somewhat insulting and acrid
criticism, by E.N.B., of the U.B.C.
representatives in the British debate,
cries aloud for comment.
Throughout his article E.N.B. persistently accuses the Varsity team of
complete ignorance of the technique
and etiquette of debating. In so doing, he merely betrays his own abys-
smal lack of knowledge in this field,
much to the amusement of the readers
of the Ubyssey, and doubtless to the
members of the British team to whom
I am sending a copy of this superlative gem of the critic's pen.
It Is apparent that E.N.B. believes
all that he hears in the course of a
debate, and that because Mr. Mitchell
claimed that I insulted the Prime
Minister of Great Britain (never
known as the "Premier," by the way)
and Mr. King, our poor deluded friend
believed it. Alas that he should be
so unaware of the shafts of irony
and the defamatory remarks to which
parliamentary debaters are accustomed to listen. I can quite understand of course, that my remarks
would irritate the susceptibilities of
the Liberal cohorts within the walls
of the University, but even then a
reporter should have no personal bias.
All that I said about Mr. MacDonald
I am fully prepared to substantiate,
plus a great deal more very startling
information about the gentleman concerned.
E.N.B. complains about the lack of
Solish of our debaters. Presumably
e means by "polish," the frothy, piquant humor characteristic of British
teams, supported by a sprinkling of
Soints. Having debated against three
iritish teams, I am fully aware of
this characteristic. May I point out
that these purely stylistic differences
are not as important as E.N.B. would
have us believe, and they are the outcome of totally different systems of
debating? Our team had, I consider,
as much, or more actual material
than our opponents, we had figures
which they were unable to controvert,
in spite of our limitations in the obtaining of material.
The adroitness with which Messrs.
Mitchell and Lloyd handled their matter, may to a considerable extent be
ascribed to the frequency with which
they had debated this subject before
arriving in Vancouver. Thus they
were enabled to obtain a clearer vision
of the subject than their opponents.
Let it be understood that I am in
no way derogating from the brilliance
of the British team, but am merely
casting aspersions on the critical ability of E.N.B. insofar as forensic
matters are concerned. A little experience would doubtless broaden his
outlook. As a worthy beginning to
this end, might I suggest that he read
the "Art of Controversy," by Schopenhauer?
Yours truly,
R. E. M. Yerburgh.
The following letter has been received by the Chancellor regarding
December 10th, 1930.
The Chancellor,
University of B. C.
Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Sir:
I would like to draw your attention
to the danger of the Students speeding to and from the University and
would ask if you will give us every
assistance possible in preventing this
speeding as much as possible.
Several serious accidents have already occurred in the vicinity of 10th
Ave. and 12th Ave., West of Alma
Road, in which University Students
have been involved.
Your co-operation in this matter
will be very greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation, I am,
Faithfully yours,
W. J. Bingham,
Chief Constable.
The next meeting of L'Alouette will
be held to-night (Tuesday) at 8 p.m.
at the home of Marion McLellan, 1266
11th Averue West.
Arts '33 Class Party
The Arts '33 class party will be held
on February 6, from 8.30 to 12. The
draw will take place the week before
the dance and will include the Students* Council. Music for the dance
will be supplied by "Billy Reeves and
his Music Masters."
Physics Club
An open meeting of the Physics
Club will be held on Wednesday at
3.00 p.m. in Science 200.
Vancouver is fortunate in possessing one of the most remarkable ports
in the world, stated Major W. G.
Swan, Consulting Engineer to the
Vancouver Harbour Commissioners, at
the regular meeting of the E.A.C.
The harbour is 49 square miles in
area, and has 100 miles of shoreline
the western boundary being a line
ioining Point Grey to Point Atkinson.
i"or a hundred years after its discovery by Captain George Vancouver,
in 1792, there was no development
whatever of the port. The year of
1885 witnessed the construction of the
Port Moody sawmill and the coming
of the C.P.R. In 1920 all classes of
shipping amounted to 4,000.000 tons,
in 1926, 8,000,000 tons, and in 1929,
20,000,000 tons. The first shipment
of grain was made via the Panama
canal in 1920 and amounted to 800,000
bu. In 1924 the grain export trade
reached the 66,000,000 bu. mark, although the elevator capacity at that
time was only 1,250,000 bu.
Major Swan gave some interesting
facts on deep-sea pier construction.
He compared different types of piers
as existing in Vancouver harbour. The
C.P.R. pier B.C. is built on untreated
concrete piles, the Ballantyne pier on
concrete cylinders, and La Point pier
on a fill of sand and gravel with a
surrounding timber crib with protective concrete coating. Although creo-
■oted timber piles are cheaper in
first cost Major Swan showed that on
the basis of annual cost they are
actually more expensive than concrete piles. Concrete piles impregnated with asphalt have a life of 60
years and eliminate the objections a-
gainst the plain concrete pile.
Inter-Class Debates
Sponsored by Juniors
All Juniors interested in Inter-class
debates are asked to get in touch with
Bob Ward through the Arts letter
rack as soon as possible, in order that
Arts '32 may be represented in the
forthcoming contest.
The literary committee of Arts '32
asks that all Juniors co-operate with
them in making the Oratorical contest a bigger success than it was
last year. The tryouts will take
place on Wednesday, January 21, for
which the speeches must not exceed
three minutes. The finals will be
held on Wednesday. January 28, when
seven minutes will be allowed for
each speech.
All those wishing to enter are asked
to give their names to either Isobel
Bescoby or Bob Ward. The judges
will be chosen later and as usual two
prizes will be awarded at the class
party. "
Mr. J. W. Kelly, representative of
the Portland Cement Association, is in
the city to speak before the Vancouver Engineering Societies on "Concrete." He will address the students
of Applied Science at the regular
meeting of the E.I.C. on Wednesday
noon, in Applied Science 100. The
subject of nls address will be "Research."
Chemistry Society
A closed meeting of the Chemistry
Society will be held Wednesday evening, 8.00 p.m., at 692-6th Avenue W.
Papers will be read and important
business will be discussed. All members are urged to attend.
Vocational Address
The next noon hour talk on choosing a profession will be "The Life
and Work of the Mining Engineer,"
given by Professor J. M. Turnbull on
Tuesday, January 13 at 12.26 noon
in Applied Science 102.
Skating Club
The Skating Club will meet Wednesday evening rather than Thursday
evening for this one week. Clubroom
tickets, 26c. can be obtained at the
university clubroom in the Arena.
Classics Club
The first meeting of the Classics
Club for the term will be held at the
home of Prof. H. T. Logan, McGill
Road, Wednesday evening. Speakers
for the evening are Dave Ellis and
Malcolm McGregor who will read
short papers on "Cicero and Callius"
and "Cicero and Tiro."
The Council is correct in its attitude of curtailing extra-curricular functions but has started its campaign on an activity that
needs all the possible aid that can be given. The apparent reason
forthis ukase is that the amount of time that students apportion to
dances lessens the time devoted to studies, but it is obvious in
this case that no student attending a basketball game spends the
rest of an interrupted evening with his studies. This action of
the Council, while superficially aiming at a remedy for excessive
social affairs, is in reality a direct blow at the basketball team's
appeal for student support. Dances should be allowed after games
so that the club can create an attendance that will create a following for this one of the many neglected university sports.

"For the University"
A short article under the above title
appeared recently in one of the Vancouver dailies—a reprint from the
London Spectator. It is interesting
as a statement of the ideas, redolent
of moth-balls, which certain senile
minds seem to entertain about the
younger generation.
The particular learned gentleman
who perpetrated this is almost tearful on the subject of our delinquencies;
we are, it seems, "woefully lacking in
historic interest." Somewhat grudgingly he admits that, "They may have
their own interests, political or technical; they love sport and whatever
can give them a stronger sense of
actual realities, but ol<f times mean
little or nothing to them." "
How strange that this should bet
That the younger generation should
"have their own interests" is odd
enough, but that "old times" should
mean "little or nothing to them" is
well-nigh incredible.
Possibly some cynical souls will refuse to believe all this, or to see anything dangerous or out of the ordinary
in it if true. The author loftily disregards such. He goes on to say,
in tones of awful warning, "This
attitude of a large number of modern
students is real danger to the idea
of the university." He declares firmly,
"A generation which is resolved to
live merely in itself, which is apt to
dismiss Shakspeare and Goethe with
an impatient sneer, is hardly fit to
profit from the university as it now
Such a statement is enough to make
even the most callous of undergraduates shake in his shoes. Have a care,
unreverend studes and co-eds. It is
a proven fact that you are totally
unfit to profit from the university as
it now is. And what I want to know
is, what are you going to do about

A Sorbonne Classroom
As Seen By a Grad
In a way the room is like any college
classroom anywhere: rows of bare
seats sloping down to a sort of counter, or barrier to protect the front
row of students from sudden attacks
of wild professors.   The seats are in
fiairs, and the desks are even cruder
han ours. The other chief differences
are: tiny windows hermetically sealed,
for the French dread "currents or
air;" and above the small blackboard
a picture of a female figure dressed in
a wreath of mist, which is coming off*
and a male figure dressed in a tablecloth observing her with interest. This
is supposed to be a painting of "La
Grece se devoilant a l'Archeolgie."
The audience is about ninety per
cent, girls and ex-girls, all talking
except five, one of whom has a sore
throat: the four others are Chinese.
Suddenly the professor comes up from
behind the counter, and everybody
applauds. Instead of a gown to give
htm dignity, he has a decoration in
his buttonhole and a long black beard.
He begins to address the class in English, as this is a lecture on Burns.
He, however, isn't going to lecture;
one of his students is to read a paper.
She takes her seat beside him. She
is a small creature with large glasses
and a conscientious air. First she
reads Burns in a small voice and then
she translates him. Qod bless thee,
Burns! At first I can't follow her
at all, for during the first fifteen
minutes about one-quarter of the audience decide they know enough about
Burns for their immediate needs and
walk up the creaking stairs to the
door at the back. The janitor, however, has locked the door on the outside to ensure that the audience will
be properly inoculated with Burns.
Does this bring the outward bound
back to their seats? It does not.
They rattle the door till you can't
hear yourself think. Half the audience hiss at them; the other half gig-
?rle. The student continues her read-
ng, and the professor chips in every
so often, in the rude way professors
Suddenly the janitor opens the door,
and the outward bound fall all over
him. He tells them what he thinks
of them; they respond in suitable
terms, while from beyond him and
them there floats a conversational
roar from the main hall. Bright
idea comes to janitor: he shuts door
again, this time not locking it.
Attention reverts to the student,
who is still expounding Burns. She
is approaching a risque passage. I
listen attentively, but she mistranslates so that it sounds quite innocent.
The professor wags his head in a way
that might mean anything.
Getting near the end of the hour:
click of caps screwed on fountain
pens, snap of handbags being closed.
Clock strikes on the wall; another
strikes in the courtyard outside. Student stops expounding and looks at
frofessor with inviting modesty. Pro-
essor, regardless of the fidgety crowd,
congratulates her, and then has one
word more, that last slow distillation
of the academic brain-cells.
But I am too busy trying to get out
past the inrushing gleaners of the
next hour's wisdom.

In a more serious vein, Mr. Cromie
spoke of the function of a newspaper.
The press, he said, should act as an
interpreter between the people and
the,various branches of science and
economics, .which are always ahead
of the understanding of the masses.
Speaking of the University in particular, Mr. Cromie asked why this
institution should always be on the
defensive. He has recently conferred with President Klinck and observed the work that is being carried
on, and as a result he believes that
the University has excellent justification for its existence, and should
be more active in acquainting the
people of its advantages.
The speaker intimated that the
"Sun" is prepared to place its information about the University before
its readers, and he suggested that the
students should do something themselves. Two or three speakers might
tour the province and give talks on
the University. The undergraduate
paper should be able to help, Mr.
Cromie believed.
Mr. Bert Smith, president of the
Alumni, agreed that the people should
know more about the University. He
hoped that a publication now being
prepared by the graduates would promote this end.
The Editor-in-Chief of the Publications Board, in illustrating the need
for the University to make itself better known, mentioned that many out-
of-town students have only a vague
idea of what the institution is like
when they first arrive. He thanked
Mr. Cromie for arranging the visit
to the "Sun" plant and for giving
the luncheon.

January 13,1981
Varsity Defeats Sons of England 3-2
Saturday was a gala day for the Senior Soccer enthusiasts at Heather
Park when two great goals by Alan Todd and a brilliant solo effort by the
youthful Costain disorganised Sons of England who managed to net two
counters in a belated second half rally.
The former scoreless wonders from U. B. C. had evidently decided to
do things and do them quickly for inside of eight minutes they were three
Sale up.   One minute after the start Al Todd and Costain drifted through
I defense for Todd to net number
one. The ball had scarcely been
centred when Costain tricked both
backs and scored from a seemingly
impossible angle. From the kick-off
Bunny Wright sped down the wing
to drop in a perfect centre which Alan
Todd nodded into the goal from the
custodian's hands to chalk up the
prettiest goal scored for Varsity this
year. Facing a three goal deficit
Sons of England wilted badly while
the students adapted themselves to
the heavy going in unusually good
•tyle. The forwards swung the ball
about grandly led in inspired fashion
by Costain. Bunny Wright was always dangerous and effected many
spectacular crosses while Latta on
the other wing formed an ideal partner for Al Todd, the brains of the
On the other hand the Englanders
attempted a close passing game which
was an utter failure against the bustling Varsity tactics. Only a magnificent display by the Red, White and
Blue goalie prevented Costain and
Todd from scoring again.
The second half saw a change in
the opposition tactics and within a
minute the Sons had scored after the
Varsity keeper threw out a shot for
the sphere to land at another forward's feet. For a few moments as
Sons of England played a more open
game things looked black for the collegians but Roberts and Chalmers
held. Vanity took the offensive and
Costain finished a good movement by
shooting wide. The same player repeated and then Al Todd and Latta
missed narrowly. Costain with an
open goal saw his shot land in a
puddle and stopped dead,, while on his
next try the goalkeeper pulled off a
great save. Varsity was having all
the play and it was not until a minute
from time that the Englanders netted
once more as the college keeper tipped
a shot onto the post for the greasy
ball to twist over the line.
For Varsity, Alan Todd was outstanding, his neat ball control being
a feature on the rain soaked field.
Costain has seldom led the forwards
better while Bunny Wright performed
brilliantly on the wing. Dave Todd
turned in a good performance and
fitted in well with Wright. Latta was
effective on the left but was inclined
to put too much force in his centres.
Kozoolin was the best half back,
lending valuable aid to the backs in
the second half. Cox was efficient in
his tackling but was inclined to be
slow while Waugh's big kicking relieved many bad situations, his only
fault being his tendency to wander.
Roberts was the better back uncovering a terrific burst of speed coupled
with sound volleying. Chalmers was
not as steady as usual in his kicking
but his tackling left nothing to be
desired. The Sons struggled hard
and played interesting and clean football.
Varsity: McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Cox, Kozoolin, Waugh; Wright
(B), Todd'(D), Costain, Todd (A)
and Latta.
Cross Country Race
Appears on Horizon!
The annual cross country race will
be held Wednesday, February 4, over
the usual course, announces Leo Gansner, Track Club President. The race
was inaugurated five years ago and is
an inter-class event, the points earned
counting towards the Governors' Cup.
The first ten men to finish are
placed. The winner scores ten points,
the runner placing second nine, while
the tenth finisher receives a lone tally.
The highest total of points wins the
race. The course is exacting; starting
on the Mall opposite the Administration building, proceding south through
the Aggie fields, beyond the barns, and
back again, over the same route to the
The record for the run is held by
Jack Chappelle of Arts '30, who, in
1928, plodded the two and one-half
miles in 15 min. 17 sees. Last year's
winner, Leo Gansner, turned in a
time of 15.30. Among those already
entered in the race are Alf Allen, Leo
Gansner and Ashley Shatford. These
three names alone promise a gruelling struggle and the dark horse possibility always remains.
For the benefit of those interested a
route map of the run will be published in a later issue of the 'Ubyssey.'
Desbrisay Wins
For Hockeyists
Undaunted by Saturday's drizzling
rain or sodden turf both Varsity and
U. B. C. grass hockey teams turned
out in full strength for their respective games at Brockton Point and
Connaught Park. This enthusiasm
resulted in a 1-0 win for Varsity over
Crusaders while the U. B. C. team
fiossibly earned two points by de-
ault since its opponents, Vancouver,
failed to appear.
Playing with only nine men Crusaders never had a chance against
Varsity but were bottled up in their
own half throughout the game. The
low score was by no means indicative of the play and only remained
low because the Holy Warriors
concentrated their whole team on defence.
Throughout the first half DesBrisay peppered the Crusader's custodian wiith hard shots but he succeeded in twanging the twine on one
occasion only and this effort was
ruled invalid on account of a previous
infraction of the rules by one of the
opposing side.
Immediately after the cross-over
Bob Ward broke through and came
within an ace of scoring. The ball
was cleared to the wing where Terry
Holmes snapped it up and whipped it
back to DesBrisay at centre who
slipped it past the Crusaders' goalie
for the only credited tally of the

Soccerlings Succumb
At Westminster
Varsity junior soccerites lost a
hard fought game on Saturday 3-0.
The game was played on a rain sodden field and the Royals won by
their ability to adapt themselves to
the heavy ground and slippery ball,
their kicking and ball control being
remarkable under such conditions.
The first half was closely contested, both goals having many narrow escapes. In this period the work
of Grant and Roper was outstanding.
Frattinger was invincible in goal and
Arnold White was a tower of strength
at centre half. Half time found the
teams deadlocked.
After the interval the New Westminster aggregation pressed hotly. In
spite of the herculean efforts of the
Varsity defense, the Royals soon
scored from a scrimmage in front of
the students' goal. Shortly after, they
put in a second when Frattinger
failed to hold a fast cross from the
left wing. After these reverses the
Blue and Gold attacked strongly for
a short time but the Royals' centre
forward broke away and scored a
third and after that Varsity was
never in the picture. __„
For Varsity Frattinger in goal was
the star being well supported by
Grant and Roper, and Arnold White
at centre half. The forwards had
little opportunity to show their wares,
Laurie Todd being the best.

The cartoon on Council and its chicks printed on Friday's
Muck Page was timely for last week the local Solons again exercised a restraining hand, the sufferer in this case being the basket-
ball club. The bounce and toss clan decided to stage one of their
popular dances after Friday evening's entertainment in the Varsity gym where Varsity Senior "A" men had a date with Shores.
Council banned the dance on the ground that there were too
many social functions as it is.  This is a narrow minded decision.
The loyalty of Varsity supporters is not only well known
but also a standing joke down town. The basketball bosses have
never looked with favour on the use of the Campus basketball
palace for league games and one of their greatest points is the
sparse attendance. Hence as an added attraction a snappy hop
is generally arranged by the college club, and now apparently
these dances which have been so popular a feature in the gym
have been cancelled merely because a mid Victorian council does
not approve.
Juat as a friendly suggestion it might be a good idea to
turn up to the Campus basketball palace and give the boys the
once over some night.

A Men's Hoop aggregation turned
back the youthful Shores team at
the U.B.C. Gym., Friday night, by a
26-17 count. The Students went into
the game with plenty of pep and in
the first minute sank a pair of nice
shots, but it didn't seem to last. With
the effects of the bitter battle in New
Westminster still lingering the Collegians were not up to their usual
form and until the dying minutes of
the fray showed little interest in the
struggle. However, when it came to
the final push, the Blue and Gold aggregation showed a lot of reserve
Campbell opened the count with a
shot from the tipoff and Cy Lee added
another just thirty seconds later.
About this time the Collegians got
over their little spree and settled
down to the usual variety of passes
and shots, allowing the Jewelry aggregation to take a shot once in a
while just to be friendly. It was that
kind of game. At half time it was
15-8 for Varsity.
Then in the second period the Point
Grey team attempted to emulate the
absent minded professor and the well
known sleep walker, with much success, and Shores began doing things
until the score was 17-16 for Varsity.

Converted Try Defeats Magee
It was evident at Lower Brockton
on Saturday that the holiday season
had not done the Varsity Second Rugby team a great deal of good. Playing with a rearranged team, due to
injuries, the team had some difficulty
taking Ex-Magee 6-8. The Varsity
forwards started off with a rush and
it had all the signs of being a walkover. After Hanbury scored a pretty
try about half-way through and
Mercer converted the greasy Ball, the
forwards slackened off. The ball was
hard to handle and the threes were
having a hard time holding it. Stobie
was away but fumbled a pass from
Hall. The going was gruelling and the
team tired. In the scrum Varsity
was breaking about even, but lacked
their usual dash that has helped
them to the top position in the league.
The second half started off fast. Varsity pressed for a while and Calland
nearly scored after a nice run but
his pass was fumbled. On a scrum
on the Varsity line Ex-Magee sneaked
a try in a pile-up. The convert failed.
Varsity fought hard to maintain their
lead and play was about even. The
whistle blew with the ball at mid-
It was a forward game and Varsity
did not make use of its dribbling
ability. The backs played well considering tho condition of the ball. Tye
turned in the best game of the day
at fullback. He was safe and his
kicking was sound. Grant was the
pick of the forwards. The team: Tye,

Rise and Shine
Rounding into shape after a week
of intensive practice the Varsity Senior City and Junior teams are turning out regularly every morning
There is an abundance of good material including some members of last
season's victorious Junior team and
several of last year's Intermediate
squad who did not play before Xmas.
These experienced men are expected
to form the nucleus of an effective
machine under the expert tutelage of
Doctor Burke, who is on deck bright
and early every morning to put the
boys through their paces. Among
the old timers playing again are Joe
Wrinch, Ernie Brown, Van Morrison,
Doug. Gordon, Dave Donaldson, Mark
Collins, Tom Brown, King, Earle, and
Sam Haggerty.
There is, besides these a large number of promising new recruits.
The first team will play in a four
team league including the Meralomas,
V.A.C. and the Dodekas. The first
game is to take place this coming
Saturday at 2.30 at McBride Park,
where Varsity will take on the Dodekas, its ancient enemies.
Although the teams look good there
is still a slight shortage of men and
all newcomers will be welcomed. Strip
can be obtained from Arnold Henderson at the Curator's office for a three
dollar deposit.
Frosh Add Blue to All
The much heralded North Shore
All Blacks ran into a snag Saturday
at Douglas Park when the Varsity
Frosh walloped them 6-0. Weight and
experience told in the muddy struggle
and the Greenmen registered a try in
each half. Shatford got the first
when he fell on the ball after a forward attack. Milton Owen made
things safe for Varsity, scoring after
a three quarter run.

Hockeylettes Oblige Opponents
Women's grass hockey teams again
took it on the chin Saturday at Stra-
thcona Park, as Ex-North Van. beat
Varsity 4-2 and Ex-South Van. triumphed over U.B.C. by the only goal.
Varsity played carelessly in the first
half and found itself three down at
half-time. In the second canto the
co-eds netted two by some strange
mischance and the northsiders tallied
once more. Isobel McArthur was
' outstanding for Varsity.
