BUI Whimster, president of the
A.M.S., wUl formaUy open the new
Stadium on Saturday afternoon. In
the short ceremony the Stadium will
be dedicated to the University and
to University Athletics. It wUl stand

FoUowing the ceremony an English
Rugby game will be played—Occasionals vs. Varsity. This will be the
first official game held on the new
The   Stadium   campaign   began   in'
the faU of 1930; by the spring,of '31
the students had raised about $20,000
by means of subscriptions, tag days,
d,      tea   dances,   etc.  There  was   also  a
I       generous  gift from the faculty.
The playing field and the track
with the exception of the 220 straight
i away were completed with this
money. Though the field had to be
drained it was hoped that it would
be ready for use in the 1931-32 session. The grass however didn't grow
properly so the opening was postponed until now.
»• Last   year   the   Student   CouncU
saved enough money to complete the
210 and to construct the Stadium
fence, which was necessary to safeguard the 120,000 investments. They,
havt also provided for proper cart
of the field.

Third and Fourth year students are
teoUng gloomy these days. Their rosy
dreams art ruined. Instead of getting
off on Dec. 9 for a whole month of
hoUdays, as they expected, they art
to have lectures untU Dec. 22.
No doubt they will find some consolation in the fact that the First and
Second year students will be struggling with exams at the same time.

German Reparation
Payment Impossible
Avers Carrothers
"The Lausanne Conference partially recognised that Germany wiU not
pay any more reparations," stated
Dr. Carrothers, speaking on that subject at a meeting of the International
Relations Club, at the home of Prof,
and Mrs. H. F. Angus, Wednesday
The speaker was of the opinion that
a satisfactory agreement will not be
reached, but that Germany will default.
Dr. Carrothers traced the history of
post war payments by Germany as
set by the Treaty of Versailles and
later modifications introduced by the
Dawes plan and the Younge plan,
Hoover moratorium, leading up to
the present situation adopted at Lausanne.
He said that comparatively little
credit had been given to Germany for
things she lost at the end of the War
such as coal fields, railway equipment, investments abroad, and the
greater part of her merchant marine.
In 1921 Germany defaulted on her
first payment resulting in the French
occupation of Ruhr. There followed
a period of currency inflation which
lifted a burden of five million marks
annually from the taxpayers.
Further negotiations ended in the

Poppy  Day
Freda Foster has been chosen to
take charge of the Poppy Sale today.
Small flowers are being sold for ten
cents and over, and the large ones
for twenty-five cents and up.
The proceeds will go to the Canadian Legion for the returned soldiers.
With the idea of helping these men
who fought for their country in mind
it is hoped that there will be a large
sum to send to the Legion.
The Players' Club, under the leadership of Bill Cameron, the president,

Shakespeare's Parodies
After treating of the parody of
Aristotle and the mediaeval caricatures of Reynard the Fox and tho
schoolmen, she brought the discussion down to Shakespeare's interlude.
"Pyramus and Thisbe" in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" which mocks
the extravagant heroics of Elizabethan drama. With a slight mention of
the subtle Restoration parodies, which
are now almost forgotten, she went
on to react many amusing parodies
on the work of the famous poets of
the nineteenth century.
"Of course, work of this sort was
sure to arouse controversy and the
wiseacres gave the parodists a very

$15,000, divided into three annual installments of $5,000
each, is the donation made by the Carnegie Corporation of New
York to the University for the purpose of buying books for the
library. The gift was formally accepted by the Board of Governors at their regular monthly meeting Monday night.
In recommending the U. B. C. library, the advisory board
of the corporation, emphasizes the value of a University library in the following statement:

To   Rebudget
CouncU experienced an unpleasant
surprise at the meeting Monday night
when It was discovered that they
had received $568.00 less than they
expected from the Bursar's office.
A special meeting has been called
for Thursday night when Council
wUl again wrestle with the budget
and it looks as if it wUl be a tangled
struggle with the way not quite
clear as yet.
A rough draft of the constitution
has been drawn up and is awaiting
its debut at the next Alma Mater
meeting which will probably be held
in the near future.
The International   Relations   dub
and the S.C.M., who want to send
fifteen  delegates   to   Reed   CoUege
convention   In   Portland,   asked   if
Council would pay half the expenses.
No decision was reached.
The supplementary budget tor theatre  night__was  passed.    It  appears [will be penalized ten points.   Three

different contract this year, will be
unable to supply the music and has
advised the procuring of outside''artists. Tlie alternative is to have theatre night as a pep meeting but as
it is for the graduates it was decided
to have something more dignified.
The Budget for the University Ball
was also passed. It was decided that
tickets would be limited.

The pin to be awarded in the best-
reporter-of-the-week contest will be
given for the first time on Monday
next, for work done on Tuesday and

The contest will continue for the
rest of the session, during the remaining six Issues this term as well
as the full Issue next term. It will
be permanently awarded at the end
of the year to the most proficient
reporter on the staff.' None of the
editorial board will be eligible for
this award.

Take Courage, Oh Ye of Little Sox-Appeal, And For Heaven's
Sake Make Yourselves Attractive to Opposite Sex
Is Professors' Advice
Mixed emotions rocked the student
body of San Diego State College this
week as it tried to decide just how to
take the challenge flung at non-
daters by Professor Harry C. Stein-
metz of the psychology department.
The challenge, which minced no
words,  appeared   in  the form  of  an
to the opposite sex, do a little flirting and get a date.
"You know if this editorial fits you.
If you haven't a date this week forget
your silly pride; fold this paper so
the title of this editorial ('Does This
Fit You?') shows, and walk around
with it; flap it about carelessly in

Grads Will
Be Skitted
By Students
Undergraduates will strut their
stuff before their staid predecessors
in the auditorium Friday at 8:30
p.m. The occasion wUl be Theatre
Night, the first event offered in entertainment of the Grads, who will
return from their various occupations
out in the wide world to the halls of
their Alma Mater for Homecoming
A charge of 25 cents wUl be made
to all students attending. The Frosh
saw the performance free at the dress
rehearsal Thursday.
The length of the programme wUl
not be a problem this year, as many
.of _lhe skits have been combined or
eliminated. Among the missing productions the Thoth Ballet is perhaps
the most conspicuous in its absence.
With the Players' Club, Musical
Society, and each of the classes prepared to put over their act with the
characteristic vim and vigour, the
programme will proceed along the
lines of satire and burlesque. Interspersed among the skits will be songs
and speeches and the reading of telegrams of felicitation from Grads 'in
After the opening overture by the
orchestra under the direction of
Haden WilUams, and the Kla-How-

guests. The first skit "The Campus

groups; when the two really work together, and that this is possible Is
being demonstrated in an increasing
number of colleges today, the united
group thus formed is of unique significance. First-rate Ubrary service
is absolutely necessary to success in
their enterprise, and such service demands not only a generous array of
books and journals, well selected and
up-to-date, not only a professional

educational opportunities; it demands
as well a physical equipment which
meets the needs of the situation,"
The corporation stipulates that the
money shall be'used for the purchase of books and current periodicals for under-graduate study and
not for research works or special collections.
Payment will be made ln three annual installments, and if arrangements go forward without a hitch,

In that vicinity.
Members of the militia will be provided with uniforms and will hold
drills. They will be given the usual
relief camp allowance of $7:50 a
month, and the plan which was arranged partly through the co-operation of the militia units themselves
is much more acceptable to the men
than the actual relief camps. This
particular camp contains three hundred members of the non-permanent
Militia, and composes British Columbia's first labor battalion.
A similar programme of relief is
being inaugurated throughout the
Dominion, under thc name of the
Fordham Relief Commission. A quarter of a million dollars will be consumed every month in the functioning of this commission, and this sum
will be provided by the Federal Government as it  is needed.
Vancouver's new camp is not yet
at full force, as some of the men are
still being transferred from the various relief camps in the province
where they have been until now.
When the work which these men
intend to carry out during the winter
is accomplished it will represent a
considerable improvement, not only
to the Endowment Lands, but to the
University itself.

This oppprtunity ig taken by the Ubyssey to extend its
heartiest greetings to returning graduates during the annual
Homecoming celebrations.
As we take our editorial typewriter in hand to compose a
paean o! welcome to the former inhabitants of this and the
Fairview campus, a multitude of platitudes and weak, empty,
trite remarks burst into a shower of sparkling combinations
like a Hallow'een pin-wheel. But we thrust them manfully aside
and resign ourselves to the task of flagellating our benumbed
brain for a few original phrases which will convey to you, the
grads, a little of the pride we feel in welcoming you home.
*   *   *
Five minutes have elapsed since the completion of the last
paragraph, and still no inspiration in the weary windings of our
befuddled brain.
*   *   *   *
VVe could say that the students deeply appreciate all that
has been done for them by the graduates, but we know that
the graduates already know this. We could point to the Cairn,
the Gymnasium and the bright green turf of the Stadium Playing Field, and say "These and many other things have you
given us," but what is the use of making aphorisms. We could
enumerate a long list of honors won and good impressions made
by graduates, who have built up the reputation of this, our University of British Columbia, but the Grads would reply "we
know that this generation of students and many others to follow, will do no less for U. B. C."
So all that is left for us to say is "Welcome home', Grads!
' We'll try to bring as much honor to our University, as you
have done. Kla-How-Ya!"
Once upon a time, there was a University of British Columbia and there was a Publications Board at this University.
They used to publish an annual year book there, too.
In the dim far-distant days of history the annual was free
to everybody. But the University grew and grew, and the
record of the graduation class grew greater and longer, so that
it was finally decided to give the annual only to the graduates,
and make all the freshmen, and sophomores and juniors, pay for
Then there was a depression. Not a very big, or serious
one, but a nice little short one, that people soon forgot. The
sales of this, by then famous, book dropped off, so everybody
had to pay for it.
*   *   #   *
This state of affairs lasted for quite a while- Finally the
Publications Board of the University we have been talking about
decided to make the annual much more elaborate, so they made
it a complete record of the activities of the students for a year
and called it a Totem.
Then the prosperity pendulum swung the other way, and in
nineteen hundred and twenty-nine there was a condition of
great demand, and all the Totems disappeared.
This condition could not last, and so the prosperity pendulum decided to swing the other way. And there was a depression which all the newspapers decided was the greatest
one there had ever been. It was a nasty depression, because
everybody made it an excuse for pretending they were broker
than they were. One result of this horrible catastrophe was that
everybody used to look at everybody else's Totem and only a
few hundred students bought the volume.
•   *   *
This made the effect of the slump very, very bad. So bad
that the Publications Board decided that it could not spend so
much of the students' money without a direct mandate of some
kind from them. So they issued an ultimatum that unless
seven hundred students promised to buy the Totem, and made
a deposit of one dollar to show that they were in earnest, no
Totem would be published. So great was the depression that
only thirty students made a deposit one week before the last
day set for these pledges of a sincere intention to buy.
So now the Publications Board has ordered its mourning
for the death of the Totem. But there is still time to arrange
for a resurrection of this book which everybody apparently
wants to see and nobody is willing to buy.

Miss I. Webster Smith, a member of
the Japan EvangeUcal Band addressed a well attended open meeting of
the Union on Wednesday.
Miss Smith opened by outlining the
conditions ln Japan today pointing
out that there were great numbers
waiting for the gospel message. She
also mentioned that there was a great
scarcity of ■ employment among graduates of various schools, although the
educational facilities were good. She
added that the increase of population per year was around one million, and that one of the greatest
sources of death was suicide, since
they had no God, therefore no hope.
Miss Smith then outlined her work
in Japan in an Interesting way, showing some pictures of the happy groups
under their supervision. She stressed
the point of how wonderfully God
had supplied their needs.

Correspondence   ]
The Editor,
Dear Sir,
Here is an answer to the article
some days ago in the Vancouver
"No! Vou can't stop students kissing."
The other day our "Vancouver owned" paper printed some "hot stuff'
(according to them) on its front page,
also a "hot" picture. It is reported
that the boys and girls of the U. B.
C. kiss each other and "you can't
stop them!" I am a student at the
U. B. C. and. prior to coming here
have had an opportunity to observe
many walks of life. Young people
everywhere are naturally full of emotion. Where would the world be without it? You can't pin a label like
that on students only, you wiU have
to include everybody under forty and
many over that age. I have seen less
"carrying on" here than among any
other co-educational group this side
of the Atlantic. In every large group
of people you will find extremists,
so here, at the U. B. C, but the number who go in for petting, drinking
and general fast life are vastly in the
minority. They couldn't be anywhere
else. We are only humans the best of
us and few are physically gifted to
stand such strain and pass the examinations of the U. B. C, a tremendous
strain in themselves. The majority
of students as I have noted them
are a serious conscientious body ie.
witness the number studying economics, go into the library at any
hour of the day. Most of us are endeavoring, many under serious handicaps, to fit ourselves for the gigantic
responsibilities of the future. We are
your future citizens, Vancouver, you
might support our endeavors and not
tolerate such frivolous, sickening rot
as printed in the above mentioned article. It is a disgusting insult to the
reputation of your University and to
you  as   Intelligent  people  of  Van-
cuver city. M. L. Arts '35.

The recently announced grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to the U.B.C- Library is another indication
of the esteem in which this university is held all over the continent. Especially is it a tribute to the library itself, although
at the same time it is one which that institution has well and
truly earned. For our library now ranks as the fifth largest
university library in Canada, and is unsurpassed from a viewpoint of efficiency. In this position it is an invaluable contributor to the international prestige of the university as a whole,
and combined with an excellent faculty has made possible the
high standard of scholarship for which U.B.C. graduates are so
justly renowned/ For the maintenance of an up-to-date list of
periodicals and books is one of the most essential aids offered
by a university to its students, and students of U.B.C. appreciate the comprehensiveness of the material and excellenve of
the service offered to them. Some have even given evidence
of their appreciation by offering their services free to the
library in its time of need.
Credit for the intrinsic value of the U.B.C. Library as
recognized in the latest grant of the Carnegie Institute is of
course due to the librarian, John Ridington, and the staff of
able assistants who have been working with him. Their faithful devotion to the interests of the university through its library

Mitt M. Osterhout
discusses Personality
Of    Indian    Leader
The aims and aspirations of Mahatma, Gandhi were discussed by
Miss Mildred Osterhout, a graduate
of U.B.C., at a meeting of the S.C.M.
held on Tuesday noon.
During her residence in India and
in Klngsley Hall, London, (where
Oandhi was entertained while the
recent Round Table Conference was
in session), she had an excellent opportunity to meet and know Ohandi
ultimately and learned to know his
history and aspirations as few others
have done.
Educated at Oxford
Oandhi was born In 18(9 in Ver-
bunda, India. His father was rich
and Influential and his mother was
a very devout Hindu. After receiving an excellent education ln India
he went to Oxford at the age of 19.
Three years later he was admitted
to the Bar and returned to India to
practice after vainly trying to be an
Englishman. Disgusted with the immorality of the Indian courts he went
, to South Africa and lived in the Indian Colony* there.
Passive Resistance
Here he was seared to the depths
of his soul by the misery of the
people and from then on gave up all
his worldly possessions and devoted
himself to bettering the conditions of
the common people. He returned to
India at the outbreak of the war and
was a great help to the British.
After the war when the British did
not grant the reforms that they had
promised he turned against them and
began his policy of peaceful rebellion. It is due entirely to Ohandi
that Indian history since the war
has not been a series of bloody massacres.
Religion of Life
His religion of life is briefly that
Truth is Ood and Ood is Truth. He
feels that one cannot know Ood but
must seek him as patiently as a man
who tries to empty the sea with a
bucket. His policy as taught ln his
school at Ashram is (1) Truth; (2)
Non-violence and non-destruction of
life (he is a vegetarian); (3) Love
and affection for everyone, it is beneath man's dignity to hate; (4) Cel-
ebacy; (5) Control of the animal
appetites; (6) Equality of possession;
(7) Industrialism brings no happiness,
therefore abolish it; (8) Fear nothing;
(9)  Learn the Indian tongue.'
Gandhi's success thus far has been
the arousing of Indians to their
wrongs and in giving a certain pride
to the Indian race.

Nationalism Again:
Italy This Time
"Italy of today thinks and lives
only in terms of nationalism. This is
natural enough In a country unified
in less than seventy years, where
"unity" may still bo termed a political novelty. Mussolini, borne upwards by the rising tide of national
sentiment dominates Italy as the
Colossus did ancient Rome. Under
his guidance Italy harbours Imperial
ambitions. It is yet to be seen If
they can be pursued without imperilling world peace," stated Margaret
Little before the third meeting this
session of the Historical Society,
Tuesday, at tiie home of Dr. and
Mrs. Sage, Her subject was "The
Rise of Italian Nationalism."

"A hundred years ago Italy had
no political future," she declared.

Science '31 Graduate
Invents Propellor
Elmer Martin, who graduated in
1981 in Applied Science Faculty, has
invented and patented a "gadget"
for improving the propellors on
wind-driven machines. The new invention provides for three blades hi
the pr6pellor where there had formerly been but two. In addition they
have been reduced In length from 10
feet to about 8ft feet. This reduces
vibration and consequently allows
for the production of more power by
the machine. Although the contrivance has not yet been completely
tested it is expected that it will be
of value to the mechanical world.
Martin was well known here aa an
air-minded student. He obtained his
wings in the R.C.A.F. before he came
to this university.

proved unsatisfactory and so tht payments were further sealed down in
1989 by the Youngs plan which definitely fixed the amount.
By June 1931 the situation had become so acute that ths Hoover moratorium was introduced. Final compromise wm arrived at by the Lausanne Conference which decreed that
the Germans should, sometime
within throe years pay throe million

The whole situation has been made
very difficult because of the different

the tendency to identify mere rldi^
cule with parody have resulted ln a
wide-spread   misconception   of   this
form of humour," she said.
Many Writers Burlesqued
The most frequently mimicked
writers are Tennyson, Poe, Swinburne, Wordsworth and Longfellow,
while among the most frequently
parodied poems are Anne Taylor's
"My Mother," Poe's "Raven" and
Oray's "Elegy."
Gilbert, of Gilbert and Sullivan
fame "possibly did more by laughing
out of fashions follies of the Victorian era than any of its more serious
critics did in their efforts at reform."
Humour Essential
"The writer of a fine parody is
necessarily a real artist . . . Good
breeding and self-restraint are as important requirements in a fine parodist, as are exact mental balance,
critical insight and good humour,"
said Miss Black. "The primary aim
of a .parodist is to amuse ... A parody to be truly great requires that
the object caricatured be fairly familiar, which almost implies that lt be
also of genuine literary value. It Is
the business of the parodist to find
occult resemblances In things apparently unlike. Though the abundant
use of contrast he gains the essential
element of surprise," she continued.
She summed up the chief qualities
making for a fine humourous imitation as brevity and wit, and concluded with an ode to parody itself,
which declared that,
"Granting quite that 'Man was made
to mourn,'
He eke was made to laugh and nudge
and shove."

Allen, Varsity's champion roller, running up to form, he will find a tough
man to beat. In addition Oeorge
Allen, first-string 3-mller, and Sid
Swift, are conceded a good chance
of winning.
For the Theologs, George Cockburn
will give a good account of himself.
A great fighter, George, while not at
his best on the cinders, finds the
pavement very much to his liking.
From Agriculture, the Goumeniouk
brothers will provide plenty of opposition. Some of the English Rugby
men, Chris Dalton, Bob " Carey,
brother of Dave Carey, former
Science distance ace, and Courtney
Cleveland, should make a good showing.
Freshmen are particularly Invited
to participate as the Track Club are
anxious to recruit new distance men.
Buller is counted upon to uphold the
honor of his class.
The race Is scheduled to start at
3:30, in front of the Administration
Building, and full directions will be
given there. Doctor Davidson and
Doctor Shrum will officiate.
Patricia Campbell
Presents Paper
On Young Author
"The Young Visiters" by nine-year
old Daisy Ashford, an amazing young
authoress, was the subject of the
book report at the Literary Forum
meeting in Arts 105 last Wednesday
noon. The paper wss prepared and
given by Pat Campbell.
Daisy Ashford was' one of a small
family, brought up under the rules
and regulations of parental control.
She confesses "that she adored writing and used to pray for bad weather
so that she could stay in and write."
One reviewer writes "At first glance
Daisy Ashford may appear very sophisticated, but for all her grownup ways, she remains a little child
with a child's vision of her particular world. That she managed to
write it down and make a novel of
it ia a marvel almost too good to
be true."
The characterization throughout the
whole story is consistent—a remarkable thing for a nine year old child
to accomplish. The characters are
treated with delightful simplicity and
we are given quite unconsciously,
some of the most amusing portraits.
"Mr. Salteena was an elderly man
of 48 and was fond of asking people
to stay with him. He had quite a
young girl staying with him of 17,
named Ethel Montlcue. Mr.'Salteena
had dark short hair and a moustache
and whiskers which were very black
and twisty. He was middle sized
and had very pale blue eyes." A
touch of pathos is added to the story
by Mr. Salteena'a valiant efforts to
become a gentleman. He draws a
touching picture of himself in a letter accepting an invitation: "I do
hops I shall enjoy myself with you.
I am fond of digging In the garden
and I am partial to ladies if they
are nice. I suppose it Is my nature.
I am not quits a gentleman but you
would hardly notice it but can't be
helped anyhow."
We have perhaps the most human
picture every penned of the grand
historical figures. "They came to a
platform draped with white velvet.
Here on a golden chair was seated
the Prince of Wales in a lovely ermine coat and a small but costly
crown. He was chatting quite genially with some of the crowd. "Hullo," cried the Prince, quite homely
and not at all grand. "So glad you
turned up—quite a squash eh. One
grows weary of court life. It upsets
me," said the Prince lapping up his
strawberry ice.
One of the most charming things
about Miss Ashford is her unconscious humour. "No no cried Bernard and taking the bull by both
horns he kissed her violently on her
dainty face." Undoubtedly some of
this humour is due to misspelling
and the wrong use of words but we
like it chiefly because it is so unintentional. Even the most blase reader cannot help but succumb to the
charms of this little story.
The meeting ended with several
impromptu speeches given by various members.

for liberal arts. 80 per cent of the
books to be bought must be chosen
from a list compiled by Dr. Shaw,
of Swarthmore College, and revised
to suit Canadian needs.
The donation is made from the interest on a 87,000,000 fund for overseas dominions. 8110,000 was allotted
to a group of thirty-five universities
and college libraries. "It is a fine
tribute to the repute of the
University Library as its part of
the total allotment is one twenty-
second of the total amount," stated
Mr. Ridington, librarian.
This is the third time that British
Columbia has received a large grant
from the Carnegie Corporation. They
financed the Fraser Valley Travelling Library with 8100,000, and they
also financed a committee which is
investigating Canadian library conditions. This committee is headed
by Mr. Ridington.
Tho chairman of the committee
which decided the various grants
paid a flying visit to the University
library some two weeks ago, and "it
is largely due to his favorable impressions that we received the grant,"
.was the comment Mr. Ridington had
to make.

The postponed game between U.B.-
C. and Varsity was played off on
Wednesday. The absence of three
players from each side made the
game more of a free-for-all than a
hockey match. U.B.C. were much
superior in the first half, scoring
four goals while holding Varsity
scoreless. The runs of Bea Sutton,
U.B.C. wing, and the checking of
Robina Mouat at full-back for Varaity featured this period.
During the second half Varsity
played much better, and, with the
Varsity goalie playing a fine game,
U.B.C. were held to one goal. The
game ended with the score 5-0 in
favor of U.B.C.

Bakers In
Cup Game
Varsity and Cowan-Dodson meet in
the feature game of the first round
of the O. B: Allan Cup Series on
Saturday at Powell street at 2:15.
These teams met last Saturday in a
regular league encounter, with the
Blue and Gold squad emerging victors by a 2-1 score.
The 0. B. Allan Cup Series is run
annually to raise funds for injured
players, and is always keenly contested. The game this Saturday will
be an especially hard struggle, as
the Bakers will be out to avenge
their defeat of last week-end.
Varsity will be forced to take the
field this week minus their regular
left half, Ernie Costain, who received
a sprained Instep in last week's
struggle. His place will be taken by
Cy. Manning, the veteran who played
his first game last Saturday.
Costain Only Absentee
The rest of the team will probably
line up in the same postitions as last
week. Pete Frattinger, who has
turned in good performances in the
last four games, will be between the
posts. That doughty pair, McGill
and Legg, will form the last line of
defence. Kozoolin will again be at
centre-half, with Manning and Stewart working with him. Smith and
Laurie Todd will form the right
wing, with Bud Cooke and Dave
Todd on the left. Otle Munday will
be in the centre-forward position.
The Junior team gets into action
again this week after a fortnight's
lay-off, when they play B. C. Sugar
on the Upper Playing Field. As the
Refinery team is only two places
above Varsity in the standing, the
boys are hopeful of gaining a couple
of points.
Juniors Take
Basket Battle
Arts '34 trotted out a serious
threat to the Inter-class basketball
championship on Wednesday, and
handed Pi Campbell's men of '33 a
most artistic 38-18 pasting ln the first
game of the season. The perspiring
seniors kept the score down to 12-7
in the first half, but In the final
stanza it was simply one long parade
to the basket for the juniors.
The winners sent In Doug Mclntyre and Harold "Wottaman" Straight
at guard, and between them the former Senior A stars just about ran
away with the contest. Mclntyre was
high man for the team with rune
points, while the disciple of Lytle
rang the welkin on three occasions
and delighted the fans by indulging
in a number of tete-a-tetes with
Howie Cleveland. George Prlngle
with eight points and Bobby Mac-
Donald with six were also outstanding for the '34 squad.
Pi Campbell, making his first appearance as coach for the graduating
class, used everybody except Doc
Sedgewick in an effort to halt the
flood of baskets. Bill Lucas and Alf
Foubister were the pick of the
losers, while Wiley and McLeod had
their moments alao.
Bob Osborne supplied the whistling
with Randy Tervo doing the book
keeping. Line-ups were as follows:

B.C. Canadian Rugby
Champions Win 6-5
—Final Game Sat.
Meralomas, B. C. championship
Big Four Canadian Rugby team, defeated the crack Calgary Altomah
Tigers by a score of 8-5 in the first
game of the Western Provincial
playoffs at Athletic Park last Wednesday night. It was undoubtedly
the best game played at the local
gridiron this season, and gives the
peppy Orange and Black Squad a
one-point lead to carry into the final
game Saturday afternoon.
The Calgary crew played a smart
and consistent brand of football,
but they will have to play much
smarter still if they hope to take the
series. On the other hand the
Orange and Black team played In
top form the whole game, and
proved themselves decided contenders for the Western Canada championship.
Last Game Saturday
The closeness of Wednesday's game
has upset all the dope on this series,
and the final game Saturday afternoon should prove to be the most
thrilling performance of this year.
With a championship at stake, and
these two teams battling for top
position, anything is liable to happen tomorrow. Tickets for this game
may be obtained on the campus from
Al Pyke, Dick Farrington or Archie
First Touchdown Needless

two teams battled evenly, and it was
Varsity's Blue and Gold entry In
the Burrard Basketball League took
a 25-24 defeat at the hands of George

them the game. This makes the
score two won and two lost out of
four starts, and with a whole week
to practise before the next game,
th? boys will have plenty of time to
practise putting the ball through the
A foul shot by Purves and a basket by Harvey Mclntyre opened tho
scoring for Sparlings early in the first
half. Campbell missed a free throw
for Varsity and Harvey Mclntyre
made good on two foul shots to make
the score,5-0 for his team.
Sparlings Gain On Fouls
Nicholson broke through to score
tho first tally for U.B.C, and Leo
followed a moment later with a
beautiful field basket. Wripht scored
another 2 points to put Varsity in
the lead with h^lf tho period gone.
Foul shots predominated for the
next few minutes, with Sparling
showing deadly accuracy to take the
lead once more. For the rest of the
half the Sporting Goods outfit had
most of the play and were leading
13-8 at the whistle.
Play pepped up considerably in the
second half. For the first few minutes it was all Sparlings. They
solved the puzzle of the zone defence
and broke through continually to
pile up a 19-10 advantage.
Varsity then took a spurt and
piled up seven points to their opponents one. Nicholson, Lee and
Campbell found the hoop in rapid
succession and two foul shots were
tallied to put the U.B.C. boys in a
good position again.
Varsity Stages Rally
The Blue and Gold aggregation
could have won the game on free
throws granted to them in the next
few minutes, but failed to make good
and got only one out of five.
With only two minutes to play
Varsity was on the short end of a
25-19 score. They started a last minute rally that almost pulled the game
out of the fire. Wright scored a
penalty, and Campbell and Nicholson sent the ball through the hoop
for two points each to bring the
score to 24-25. However, the extra
basket, which would have meant
victory for Varsity was not forthcoming, and the boys were forced to
take a defeat.
Varsity—Nicholson (6), Lee (5),
Osborne (3), Campbell (6), Douglas,
K. Wright (3), D. Wright (1), Tervo,

hind their own line that gave the
Tigers a 5-polnt lead. Meralomas
had a good share of the play In this
quarter, and the touchdown against
them was "just one of those things."
In the second period play ranged
from end to end, with plenty of long
punts, and vicious tackling. No score
was tallied ,and the half ended 5-0
for Calgary.

Soccer Win
In an Interclass Soccer match at
noon yesterday, Arts '34 won from
Arts '35 by a score of 1-0. Although
the Juniors had many chances to
score they were unable to obtain
the winning tally until awarded a
penalty goal late in the second
stanza. Ted Denne took the shot, and
scored when goalie Templeton slipped
in making the save. The standing in
the two leagues is now as follows:

Students are out to make good the
opportunity of grabbing the top position in the Tisdall Cup League.
With half the regular schedule already completed and the battle for
supremacy waxing hot, it is interesting to go over the ground to examine Varsity's chances of stepping
into first place. A set back for Ex-
King George at the hands of the
N. V. All-Blacks and a win for the
Blue and Gold over the Grads will
give Varsity a one-point lead in the
Judging by comparative scores
both these results seem highly probable.
The All-Blacks made the high
score of the season last Saturday in
trouncing the Rowing Club 40-0. Yet
two weeks ago the Clubbers held
Ex-King George to a 3-3 draw. It
will not be a surprise therefore to
see the ever-improving North Shore
boys take the Ex-High School students by a good margin.
Although the Blue and Gold squad
only took a 3-0 decision from the
Grads at their last meeting they are
favored to repeat again in tomorrow's

Hockeymen Show
Classy Form At
Monday Practice
Monday night's ice hockey practice
was a decided success owing to the
numbers of new men who have
turned out displaying unusual talent.
Art Schuman, who knows his hockey
from the ground up, was on hand
coaching the players with a will.
King McGregor, out on the forward
line for the first season since his
days as a net-minder, seems to have
what it takes in the way of speed
and stick-handling ability, coupled
with an almost inexhaustible supply
of wind. "Breezy" Fowler was showing ability at defense, and Henry
Puder and he should make a strong
pair. Cece Ramsden waa out to
show that he has not lost any of his
skill on the blades since last year.
The rest of last year's Intermediate
squad together with the fresh "ivory"
available this season, will make a
team that will take a lot of stopping.
The making of a promising Junior
League entry has turned up also,
most of whom have had previous experience on various high school
teams, and Intend to make use of it|
Many of the players benefited by
the sale of hockey gloves held recently by a downtown store and the
Forum sheet was graced with a
startling array of freshly-padded fists.
The ice was in excellent condition
and a pair of new nets on the goals
made everything hotsy-totsy. Art
Schuman is taking a great interest in
the teams and is going to do all in
his power to turn out a winning aggregation. With several more practices to their credit, and with some
of Art's hockey experience imbibed
in their makeup Varsity hockeyists
will be in line to spring a few surprises in local League circles.

diligently training for the past few
weeks in preparation for thc fall
classic, the Arts '30 road race, to be
staged Wednesday next. Circling the
University four times, the boys will
have to run about three miles before they cross the finishing line.
Open to all faculties and all years,
nevertheless it appeals mainly to
Science men, Aggies, and Theologs,
who find the rugged pavement work
to their liking. The keenest competition is expected this year, however,
from Arts, who have several good
rugby and track men willing to raise
a few blisters.
