Queen's Strike
Is Exaggerated
By Newspapers
Sentiment expressed in hand bills
posted on the campus of Queen's
University, threatening a student
strike was not that of the majority
of students, states a despatch in the
Queen's Journal.
The posting of the hand bills came
as a sequel to remarks made by
Principal W. H. Fyfe and Vice-Principal W H. McNeill at • C.O.T.C.
banquet. The Principal was quoted
aa saying that the 'Union,' with its
young men slumped ln chairs, collars turned up and hats pulled down,
reminded htm of a "club for young
criminals." Criticism of Dr. McNeill
wu baaed on hla statement that
Queen's waa "woman Infested" and
his outspoken condemnation of coeducation.
The ultimatum contained in the
hand bills demanded: Action by the
AJUS., co-operation of campus societies, a mass meeting and a public
apology to the Dean of Women and
the ladles ot Queen's by Dr. McNeill.
According to'the Queen's Journal
it haa not yet been discovered from
what mysterious source thia propaganda came but the general concensus of opinion waa to treat It as a
joke. Out-of-town papers seized on
the story and exaggerated It to the
extent that a strike was fomenting
at Queen's. "Thia was news to
Queen's students," states the Journal.
Des Burke, president of the A.M-S.
at Queen's, said that the whole affair waa ridiculous and that the
A.M.S. had ho Intention of taking
any action.
Presents Report
To Discuss Fate
Of Agriculture
Although the Board of Governors
made no official statement after
their meeting Saturday night, there
is an unofficial rumour that the Faculty of Agriculture will be retained
with a grant of $35,000. This action
of the Board follows a recommendation of Senate that Agriculture be
abolished as a faculty, and re-established as a department of Applied Science.
The special committee of the Board,
which reported some weeks ago,
recommended that the government
grant, after deducting costs of administrations, be divided equally
amongst the three faculties, and that
the fees of students be credited to
that faculty in which they registered.
The Senate report advised, among
other things, that the cost of administration be reduced to 1180,000,
thus leaving $90,000 for distribution
to the faculties. The Board seems to
have rejected Senate's proposal to
abolish Agriculture as a faculty,
while they appear to have accepted
the reduced administrative costs
clause, because the figure for Agriculture, $35,000, is probably made
up of $30,000 from the grant and
$5,000 from student fees. This
means that the $30,000 would be one
third of the $90,000 left after deducting the proposed $160,000 administration cost from the reduced government   grant   of   $250,000.
The Senate meets on Wednesday
night, and it is thought that at that
time, it will express an opinion of
rfthe Governors' action.
At chairman of the Committee Investigating the subject of student
admbwtration at U.B.C., Thomson
has spent much time and effort in
accumulating .the information on
which the report of the Committee
is bated. A draft of the finding* and
recommendation* of the Committee
appears on thi* pap*.
Bumping Races
Described By
James Gibson
James Gibson, 1931 Rhodes Scholar,
gives a description of the Lenten
bumping races at Oxford In a letter
to his brother, W. C. Gibson. Extracts from the letter follow:
"New College the first day narrowly missed bumping Exeter. Friday I went down and joined the
motley throng—for that Is what one
is induced to call it. On the one
side of the river are all the College
Barges—some of them with fantastically shaped windows, all flying
their boat club colors, all with their
'Waterman* (characterized by the
peculiar flat caps they wear) shoving across the river and back again
in stubby punts. Christ Church
meadows in the background seem
quiet in comparison.
"On thc opposite side, the tow-
path, stretched from Folly Bridge
(where once lived Roger Bacon), to
Iffley Lock, nearly two miles distant, and where used to be the old
mill which for 700 years from the
Norman Conquest ground grist for
a'l who came. Along this walked
stately gentlemen with canes and
spats, and possibly half-a-dozen
country vicars who once rowed in
their college torpids. There are undergraduates trying to look smart
in fur coats and perky hats. There
are undergrads ln every costume-
some in running shorts and colored
scarves; some with dirty sweaters

The final meeting of the combined
Senior class will be held Wednesday
in Applied Science 100 to discuss
plans for the graduation functions.
Election of the permanent executive will be another feature of the
business. The duties of this executive are entirely mythical, and positions are really honorary.
Plans for the baccalaureate service
which will be held Sunday, May 1,
will be decided upon, and the present executive of the combined classes will outline the various functions
at which the graduates will either
entertain or be entertained.
It is rumoured that the boat trip,
which has been a feature looked
forward to by graduates for the past
seven years, will have to be eliminated from the agenda, although there
is still a chance that it will be included if enough seniors pay their
Wlllard Ireland was elected as the
President of the Historical Society for
the coming year at the last regular
meeting of the year at the home of
Mrs. W, N. Sage on Monday evening.
Professor F. H. Soward was unanimously elected Honorary Prtsldent.
Cecil Hacker is next year's Vice-
president, and Mary Warden, Secretary. New members elected were
Misses McKlnley, Westover, G. Armstrong, and M. Fotherglll, and Messrs.
E. Brown, N. Nemetz, N. Hacking and
M. Stewart.
The feature of the evening was the
paper by Katie Theissen on "B, C. on
the Pacific," on the main national
and international problems of B.C. as
a province on the Pacific basin.
Dealing with the problem of Eastern penetration, Miss Theissen briefly
sketched the activities of the Chinese
In B.C.
Immigration measures adopting the plan of raising the head-
tax from $50 to $500 were passed but
feeling ran high and a general riot
took place in 1907.
Returning to the Japanese aspect,
the chief difficulty to surmount was
the existing treaties between Britain
and Japan.
The greatest problem on the Pacific
Is the preservation of peace. Canada's
place in the League of Nations might
well promise to be the most effective
In achieving the peace on both the
Atlantic and Pacific seaboards. It remains for Canada to Interpret on the
coast the principles of the League in
spite of Japan's present departure.
Edition to be Limited to, One
Thousand Copies—Art Color
Engraving to be One of
New Features       ,
For the first time in years the Totem will appear on the Campus before the library becomes the only
place where students may be found.
The annual threatens to be on sale
before the end of March.
The current year-book contains
some new features which will make
It of more general Interest. The
soft-soap, which has been the essence of personal write-ups, haa been
eliminated, and in Its place, will appear a factual statement of the college career of the graduate. Also'
■oven pictures to a page will be the
nt-w rule.
Color engraving will separate the
volume Into the different sections.
This ia an entirely new feature, and
will add a spot of color to the usually drab inner pages. This work
has been secured only at great difficulty and should prove a decided
attraction to those who secure a copy
of this book.
Team pictures have been out down
to half a page, but team write-ups
have been lengthened so that read-
era will be able to get a better word
picture of the members of the team
and thou* accomplishments.
A thousand copies are available for
distribution amongst the two thousand registered students so there
should be a good line-up at the place
of sale which will be announced
next issue.
Those who made deposits at the
end of last term, or the beginning of
this term will get first choice, that
is, the first day or so of sale will
be reserved for those who have made

Lecture on India
By Sir Lawrence
Scheduled Here
Following the address of Mr. Yusuf
All, Sir Henry Lawrence, K.C.S.I.,
will give a lecture to students in
Arts 100, Wednesday at 12:10. Sir
Henry is speaking under the auspices of the National Council of Education, and the subject ot hit talk
will be "A historical survey of
The name of Lawrence is one which
at once recalls the history of India
during the nineteenth century. In
India itself it is still a name to conjure with, as, for one hundred and
fifty years, members of the family
of Lawrence have been continuously
associated with India.
In 1888, Sir Henry passed Into the
Indian Civil Service at the first attempt, at a time when the entrance
examination to that service was considered to be the most severe competitive test in England. Two years
later he went to India to serve the
usual  apprenticeship.
The system of segregation and sanitation which Sir Henry Lawrence
introduced during the great bubonic
plague of 1896 became the model for
those subsequently adopted throughout the whole of India as the pestilence spread. He was awarded the

"Scenes from Shakespeare" were
presented Monday evening in the
Auditorium by members of the Vancouver Shakespeare Society. Assisting the actors was the Lawson-Boak
violin ensemble of 15 instruments
with Mrs. Philip Malkin at the pi-
ano. The performance was under
the auspices of the Vancouver Institute.
The ensemble rendered four selections of Elizabethan music, and was
followed by a scene from "King
Henry VIII," in which Queen Kath-
erln fallen from the King's favor,
receives two cardinals newly arrived
from Rome. The cardinals bring
news from Papal sanction for the
divorce, and the unhappy Queen retires after having heartily rebuked
the cardinals.
This scene was followed by a vocal solo of Shakespearian songs rendered by Mrs. W. Humphreys with
Mrs. J. Hlnton at the piano. The
selections included, "When Daisies
Pied" and "Sigh No More, Ladles,"
from Shakespeare's earlier plays.
Next presented was the remarkable scene from "Richard II" In which
the Duke of Gloucester, meeting Lady
Anne following her husband's bier,
woos and wins her. The part of
Anne was taken by Mrs. S. J. Anderson, while Rul Shearman played
the  Duke's role.
Student Government
Subject of Enquiry
By Joint Committee
Faculty, Senate and Students Represented—
Recommendations Include two Sophomores and One Honorary Member on
Council, and a Committee of Eight
to Have Charge of Athletics
By a minute of the meeting of the Students' Council of the
University of British Columbia, held October 14,1931, a Committee was appointed "to report on the entire question of the
administration of student affairs." The Committee was to be
made up of two members each from the Faculty, the Senate,
and the Student Body. Appointments were subsequently made
aa follows:
Faculty: R. W. Brock, F. E. Buck. Senate: A. E. Lord,
Sydney Anderson. Student Body: Miss Dorothy Myers, J. W.

And Secretary
Seats Solicited
Candidates for Junior Member and
Secretary of the A. M. S. held a
combined campaign meeting in the
Auditorium Monday noon. Clare
Donaldson and Milt Owen were soliciting support for their election to
the Junior Member's berth on Council, while Lillian Scott and Rosemary
Winslow will try to get the secretary's pen.
Lillian Scott stressed her experience as secretary of her class this
year, and mentioned that she had
spent a year in business where she
did all kinds of secretarial work.
Nance Carter, supporting Lillian
Scott, said that she had gained a
wide circle of friends and would thus
be able to use her vote on Council
in  a  sympathetic  and  just  manner.
Rosemary Winslow outlined a polity of having stories of the success
of prominent graduates inserted in
the magazine section of the Sunday
Province. She also said that her
experience as editor of the Totem
and secretary of the L. S. E. and
reporter of the Ubyssey would allow her to use her vote on all questions in a sane manner. Alice Morrow, who worked on the same executive as Rosemary stated that she
bad handled all her secretarial work
efficiently and well.
Clare Donaldson, first speaker on
the Junior Member ticket, caused a
near-riot with his Benny Rubens style
campaign  speech,   but   lapsed   into

A Letter to Students
To the Student Body:
The time has come when matters concerning University policy
should be made public among the
students. In a few short weeks the
student body will be dismissed for
another year and they will be ln
exactly the same position, or even
worse, in regard to the knowledge
of their courses and fees for next
year, as they were at this time last
year. The students are the people
most vitally concerned in this
matter, and they are entitled to
know what the policy will be,
what cocrses are to be offered,
what fees are to be charged, and
what changes In general are to
be made.
About two months ago I waa
given a definite promise by the
President that the policy would
be outlined In sufficient time for
publication in The Ubyssey. So
far we have heard nothing but
rumours. Last Wedneslay the Senate met to discuss the policy, and
they had to adjourn In order to
hear the decision of the Board of
Governors. The Board met on
Saturday night, and would make
no announcement as to their decision.
What Is going to happen? And
when will It be decided? As it
was last year, after the studenta
are gone and they have no opportunity for discussion? WUl the feea
be raised? What courses will be
changed? Surely we are entitled to
know this and know it in time to
publish it in the last Issue of the
Ubyssey, which ia Friday, Time la
getting short. We should know
and we want to know.
After having carefully considered
various aspects of the problem of student government, the Committee sub-
mite herewith its report with recommendations contained therein:
In this report the various problems
of Student Administration will be considered under the following heads.
A. The Composition of Students'
Council with recommendations.
B. The Administration of Athletics
with recommendations.
C. The Question of Paid Management with recommendation*.

By Prospective
L.S.E. President
Eight candidates for the position,
President of Literary and Scientific
Executive, presented their platforms
In the auditorium Friday noon. William Whimster was in the chair.
Ernest W. H. Brown, the first
speaker, stressed his connection with
the Parliamentary Forum and advocated a continuance of this year's
policy. He would do his utmost, he
said, to eliminate any friction which
occurred between the two major L.S.E.
Bill Cameron, second speaker,
pointed out his variety of associations
with major and minor organizations
on the campus, which included Players Club Executive, Parliamentary
Forum and Publications Board. His
consequent insight into campus activities as a whole placed him in a
good position to exercise balanced
judgement in Council matters, and he
pledged whatever experience he had
to the well being of the Literary and
Scientific department.
Bob Harcourt stated the various
duties of a President of the L.SJE.
and claimed qualifications for them
due to his experience in the Musical Society, Letters Club and Ubyssey staff. He has good connections
in the city, and if elected would

After the final night of the Spring
Play, a reception for members of
the club and orchestra was held at
thc home of Sydney Risk, director
of the play.
The orchestra which supplied the
music for the intermissions, was under the baton of Jack Emerson, while
Phil Northcott arranged the personnel. Members of the Musical Society
expended considerable energy getting music of songs of the late Victorian and early Edwardian periods,
to maintain the atmosphere created
by the costumes and general effects
of the play.
The annual tour of the Players'
Club, though not definitely arranged
as yet, will Include Victoria, April
25, Duncan, Comox, Qualicum Beach,
Powell River, Vernon, Kclowna, Kamloops, Pentlcton, Trail, Nelson, and
other interior points. The cast will
leave for the up-country section of
the tour directly after graduation,
while the Island and Fraser Valley
points will be covered during the
interval between examinations and
convocation. Page Two

After prolonged and weighty consideration
the committee of Senate, Faculty and Council
which was appointed to look into the matter
of student government has brought down its
report. This report, which is published in
another part of this issue, is not a little disappointing. The thing which students want to
know in this connection is: Have wt got student government at U.B.C.? Tilt report entirely fails to answer this question and merely
concerns itself with tht discussion of some
minor points and the presentation of recommendations which, while they art commend-
able in some respects, do not appear to assist
the cause of student government.
The main idea stems to be to provide Council with a large additional staff of advisors,
most of whom are not representative of the
student body. The recommendation for the
appointment of Sophomore members to Council
has some value when considered as a training
measure, but tht fact that thtrt is no assurance that the same students who serve on
Council as Sophomores will be elected to the
executive in their Junior or Senior years, robs
this argument of much of its weight If, on the
other hand, it is assumed that they will be
elected because of their previous experience,
it means that the choice of nearly a quarter
of the governing executive will be based on a
knowledge of individuals which extends only
over a period of a single year.
The appointment of a member of the
Alumni as an honorary councillor may be very
nice as a polite gesture, but as a constructive
suggestion aaent student government it is unconvincing. If the Alumni representative takes
sufficient interest in student affairs to attend
meetings it is probable that he will carry
enough influence to do pretty well as he wishes
in formulating student policies. Very likely the
advice of an experienced graduate would be of
considerable value in the administration of student affairs, but it is not student government.
Under the recommendations, the administration of athletics is to be entrusted to a
board of no less than eight people of whom
only half would be students. If it requires eight
people to direct a single department of college activities it is an admission that a Council
of nine is incapable of directing the affairs of
tiie whole Alma Mater Society.
In its final recommendation, the one regarding "Paid Management," the Committee
appears to realise that Students' Council has
not as much control over the business of the
A.M.S. as might be desirable. It has, therefore,
made a valiant effort to correct undue control
from the Business Office by changing the title
of Business Manager to that of Business Secretary. *
There is supposed to be a system of student
government at U.B.C. The desirability of this
may be open to question but as long as Auditorium 305 poses as the office of a student
executive it should be the policy of students
to strengthen rather than weaken their system
of government. Under the proposed measures
Council would be open to even more outside
influence than has been the case in the past.
Indeed it would be surprising if it were not
bereft of a great deal of the meagre allowance
of authority which it now possesses.
The old woman who lived in a shoe will
have nothing on the A.M.S. president with his
flock of colleagues and advisors, if the new
recommendations are accepted.

Now that the Players' Club has been described as the Thespians Watch Association, we
are wondering if they'll be quite run down by
the end of their tour.
"Of Thespians Watch Association" was the
strange conclusion to a headline in the last
issue. Explanation: "Watch" was a proof

I wonder why the Muck-a-Muck head was
taken, off page three last time?
I find myself rising again to defend coeducation. It appears that the vice-principal
of Queen's has denounced that place as
"woman-infested"—much to the in-
Wrong dignation of the student body.
Attitudes Having some personal knowledge of Queen's studtnts, J think
there is no cause for concern. Dr. McNeill's
picture is exaggerated.
It is better that a college man's knowledge
of women should be obtained through coeducation rather than, as one understands was
the custom fifty years ago, from a class of
ladies not acceptable to polite society. The
modern association of men and women in study
and recreation is much more likely to foster
morality, respect, and sane appreciation between the sexes. Marriages among University people have been found to be more often
successful than marriages among tht rest of
the population, because the former are in a
better position to choose wisely partners who
are temperamentally and intellectually suited.
Some students make fools of themselves and
bring co-education into disrepute. It should be
recognized that students art not a ract apart,
but simply a cross-section of the public. The
blame should not be placed on tht co-educational arrangement, but on wrong attitudes developed by such factors as the salacious impression of co-education broadcast by certain
people, most of whom ought to know better;
sins of commission and omission in the home;
and tiie preoccupation of literature and the
screen with the "love" theme.
All these factors help develop undesirable
attitudes in the less stable student element,
and these attitudes are sometimes reflected in
foolish conduct. Let the older generations upbraid themselves, not the results of the influences for which they are responsible. These
influences lead to inordinate sex-consciousness
and lack of a sense of values. Their strength in
modern life is attested in the junior high
schools, for example, where you may behold
many monstrous little girls with painted lips
and cheeks—and you can readily guess what
subject is their chief concern. Let the older
generations indulge in some honest self-criticism and devote intelligent thought to these

The sermon on the present lack of leadership occasioned more comment than anything

For example, "Liberty" has ac-*

leaders are not selected because of merit, or
because of outstanding ability. Such men cannot be made the tools of political henchmen;
they have their own principles and ideals, and
they are usually ready and willing to fight for
them. Men of this sort are not allowed to become leaders. Tlie political bosses select men
to lead whom they can control, at least to a
reasonable extent. Many of our so-called leaders follow the instructions of their political

Be recent remarks on the cult of the "low

a prominent razor blade company:  "We're

"Regular ther you're chained to a desk or

hear the splash of a bass than listen
to the Moonlight Sonata." If you want to be a
"regular man," note carefully that you must
prefer fishing to classical music. Another of
your characteristics, of course, will be that you
will use exclusively the razor blade recommended in the ad.

The Washington Daily devoted an 8-page
issue to the important subject of fashions.
About cords we learn (1) that they are being

Fashion they are all the rage. Bathing suits
Notes      will approach nearer the vanishing
point. Depression in the pipe business has apparently produced a new sales idea
—the "profile pipe."
One article says that "most men dislike
strong perfume, bright red nails, profuse makeup and lots of jewelry." Ain't it the truth?
When in a good mood, I find red nails amusing,
but when in a bad humor they disgust me almost as much as painted lips do.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
This may be entirely wrong but
hare goes. Prior to the war a drive
was made to endow the University.
Considerable land in all parts of the
Province, money, etc., was' donated
by the cltiaen* of the province end
elsewhere for that purpose. During
tiie war all the land, excepting that
at Point Orey, was returned or sold
to the Government ia exohange for
a yearly grant, which was supposed
to be sufficient to carry the University comfortably. The maximum
grant obtainable, it ia understood,
wu never mentioned. What about
it? Better have some of the Alumn-
nl's legal talent look into the matter
as it appears tho University can demand a just and equitable grant.
Yours truly. SCIENCE '37
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Pear Sir—Returning to the campus
after a week's absence it is with considerable regret that I find certain
developments taking place In the
ranks of the Women's Undergraduate
Society. That such inherently wholesome things as elections should
threaten to divide the women into
opposing groups on the irrelevant
basis of sorority membership is surely
wholly undesirable. I would like,
therefore, as a past Councillor, to suggest to those women who are casting
their votes today to judge the candidates on the vital grounds of qualifications. And the qualifications which
are valid are not those of representation of sororities or any other section
of the Women's Undergraduate Society, but they are those of definite
past experience and knowledge, of
proven ability ln executive duties and
of the power of leadership of the
whole society—Including the Freshette
It is with all sincerity that I would
ask the member* of W.U.S. to rank
the names on their ballots on this and
on no other basis.

work for closer co-operation between
the executive and its organizations.
A. Bernard Jackson, having connections with several of the Clubs
in the L.S.E., declared that he had
accepted his nomination with a full
knowledge of its responsibilities and
the need for an unbiassed President.
Differences of opinion between clubs
could best be settled by one with
impartial opinions, he claimed, and
asked for support on the basis of
his good will and conscientious
E. H. Xing emphasised the lack
of co-ordination between the various
clubs of the L. S. E. and intended to
remedy the situation. He would
work for an increased Interest In
public speaking, If elected, and foster activities of the Player'* Club
and Musical Society. His experience
on the Publications Board, Soccer
Club and Publicity Bureau fitted him
well for President L.SJB.
J. Innes McDougall requested nip-
port for two reasons. His nomination
was not sponsored by any organized
body and he could consequently exercise Impartial Judgement, both in
matters concerning eligibility and In
those concerning budgets. He had
alwaya been interested in the work
for which he was now running and
bad had considerable experience on
and off the campu*.
Neil Perry had sufficient practical
experience and breadth of outlook
to assume the responsibilities of the
position for which he was running
and if elected, he pledged himself
to favor student Insurance, to organize a "Provincial Day" and to
improve the Stadium site.
Executive ability, experience and
a wide knowledge of student activities were tiie qualities upon which
Reg Price, business Manager of the
Ubyssey, hased his platform. Being
keenly interested in those organizations coming under the L. S. E., Mr.
Price felt that he was in a position
to accept the presidency should he
be elected. His contacts with Council
during the past year would be a distinct advantage, he stated.

In running tor the position of

Board of Governor*, end the sty-
dents. Another plank in my platform is the institution of an Information Bureau te help Senior students who are lost on the campus.
If a Council member is to have
any fallings, one of them must not
be conceit. That is one reason I ask
you to vote for me. I nave had
years of experience, I have a close
insight into the workings of the
W.U.S., I know my own mind. If
two year* at a member of the Chess
Club have strengthened my convictions, If five years as a First Year
Science man has given me any energy, if half-s-year as member cf
the Senior "A" Basketball team has
provided me with any patience, then
I am the man for the office.
A* to my qualification*, I am a
member of the Letters Club and
therefore can appreciate the problems of all the societies of the L J46.

ed from the Junior Class. The present
Constitution thus provides for six
members of the Council who may be
chosen from the Junior Year. Of these,
the choice of four is optional between
the Junior Year and the Senior Year,
and consequently such members are
generally chosen from the latter, thus
eliminating the opportunity for maximum continuity between successive
councils. It does not seem advisable
to enlarge the Studenta' Council by
the inclution of any more members
with fuU voting powers; however, It
is considered desirable to adopt tome
system of apprenticeship. "The Committee, therefore, recommends as follows: 'That two representatives from
the sophomore year, without voting
powers, be elected to tha Students'
Council, the election to be held en the
first Monday in November and the
franchise extended only to sophomores, Juniors and seniors'."
n. Honorary Councillor. In order
to secure further this desired continuity between successive Council*, it
seems advisable to obtain the assistance of one member of the Alumni
Association to act in the capacity
of an Advisory Honorary CouncUlor.
It la alto felt that this wtil be a means
to stimulate a much closer and vary
desirable contact between the Undergraduate Body and the Alumni Association. This position might become
one of considerable honor and aa such
could be used to the distinct advantage of the University aa a whole.
The Committee, therefore recommends at foUows: "That the University of British Columbia Alumni Association be asked to elect or appoint
one of their memben annually to the
position of Honorary CouncUlor aa a
member of the Students' Council
without voting powers; said Honorary CouncUlor to have been a former
member of a Students' Council."
The Committee believes that no
changes beyond those recommended
above should be made In the Studenta*
Council as at present constituted, but
Is of the opinion that for the purpose
of Student elections a senior should
be defined as a student in the fourth
year of Arts or Agriculture or in the
fourth or fifth year of any regular
five year course. The Committee also
submits, without further comment,
that It is not particularly desirable
that any student should hold the same
office more than one term.
The Administration of Athletics
In considering the evidence which
has been received on thi* matter, the
Committee feel* that some provision
should be made for a progressive and
uniform poUcy in regard to Athletic
Admlntotntion. Due to the rapid ex-
, pension of athletics over the past few
years and the consequent Intricacy of
their administration, it is believed
that a more centralized board of control should be ultimately provided for.
However, it does not seem advisable
to make any radical change at this
moment but merely to make provision
for greater continuity in policy. The
Committee, therefore, recommends as
"THAT an Athletic Advisory Board
shaU be appointed to assist in the Administration of Athletic Activities;
said Board to be constituted as follow*:
(a) President of Men's Athletics
(chairman); (b) President of Women's
Athletics; (c) Two Memben of the
Alumni, appointed by the University
Alumni Association; (d) Two students
appointed by the Men's Athletic Executive; (e) Two members of faculty
appointed by the Athletic Board.
"Such appointments to be confirmed
by the Students' Council"
The Question of Paid Management
The committee recognize* particular disadvantages of this system of
employing a business secretary from
year to year are the undue power and
Influence which he might acquire
over the Student Executive. However, the Committee feels that this
disadvantage i* adequately provided
against by the extension of the
CouncU to include an Honorary
CouncUlor and also by the exclusion of the Business Secretary from
Studenta'    CouncU    Meetings.

Competitions Wednesday—Team Is in
Good Condition
Intent upon adding to the single track mark that has been
shattered this season, Varsity cinder men will be out in force
on Wednesday at the annual interclass competition. The meet
which, with the possible exception of the Arts '20 relay, stands
at the top of class activities, promises to be a gala affair tomorrow. The collegians have already staged two good meets,
and training has been under way for several weeks, giving tht
competitors an excellent opportunity to get into first class condition. Tht meet will mark tht first time this year that tht
co-eds have entered into the contests, and their efforts will probably be tiie deciding factor in awarding the trophy.
There an several individual stent.

last contests. The speedy engineer
amassed a total of I8V2 points, and

As usual the co-eds are the "dark
horses" of the meet, but It Is rumored that many of the records In
the women's events are due to go

Jack Row and Bob Donald, gave a
good exhibition of the leather-pushing art at a smoker held by the
Meraloma Club Friday night. The
boys weighed in at 130 pounds and
fought three fast rounds to a draw,
evidently a popular decision. Donald
was the more rugged of the two and
carried the fight to his opponent,
Row. The latter, however, kept Donald at bay with a flicking left and
now and then brought In a hefty
right to the jaw or body. These two
young boxers show promise of going
far in the field of amateur boxing.
Memben of the Boxing Club are
asked to note that next Friday,
March 18, the last workout of the
season wUl be held. A few In
formal bouts will be arranged between members.
There will be a general meeting
of the English Rugby Club In Arts
106 Wednesday noon at 12:05. All
members are requested to attend.
General business and election of officers.
It doesn't take a man of letters to
write an IOU.
Noses Out
A fighting Varsity football squad
went down to a 3-8 defeat to Renfrew Argyles in a Second Division
League game at Cambie Street Saturday. The game produced some
fine footbaU, and might just as easily
have gone the other way.
Varsity kicked off against a strong
sun, and for some time the play was
very even. Soon after the start, however, Jimmy Smith, at outside right,
twisted his knee; and was a passenger for some time. This slowed
up the Varsity attack, and left the
right side weak, a fact of which the
Argyle forwards took advantage. Af-
tei about fifteen minutes' play, Renfrew scored the first goal of the
game, the high-bouncing baU fooling
Frattinger. Renfrew was having the
best of the play at this time, and
the Varsity goal had several narrow
escapes, both from Varsity defenders
and from Argyle forwards. Finally,
McGUl, ln attempting to clear the
ball, kicked it against a Renfrew attacker, and It rebounded- Into the
corner of the net, giving the East
End aquad a 2-0 lead. Thia, however, waa short-lived, as Munday
tallied for Varsity from the kick-
off. However, Millar McGill kindly
handled at the other end, and the
resultant penalty goal gave" the Ar
gyles a 3-1 lead which they held tiU
half-time. A similar kindness to the
Varsity forwards was thrown away
when Costain missed a penalty
against the Argyles for back-charging.
Varsity presented a much changed
line-up on resumption, Bud Cocke
coming on ln place of Jimmy Smith,
and going to left wing. Laurie Todd
shifted to outside right, brother Dave
to Inside right and Ernie Costain to
inside left. This line-up seemed to
be much more effective as Varsity
was on the offensive for the majority of the period. However, the Blue
and Gold squad was forced to content itselft with one goal, obtained
by Otie Munday on a pass from
Dave Todd. The game ended with
Varsity still on the attack.
For Varsity, Kozoolin was again
outstanding, showing most control
over the light ball. Laurie Todd also
turned in a fine performance, while
Munday played one of his best games
of the year.
The team — Frattinger, McGUl,
Grant, Wright, Kozoolin, McDougal,
Smith, Cooke, Costain, Munday, D.
Todd and L. Todd.
Science '34 Copt
Class Hoop Tilt
Science '34 defeated Science '33,
17-10 in the final game of the men's
Inter-class basketball series last Tuesday. With both teams showing plenty of form and pep the game was a
fitting climax to a most successful
season of exciting battles. By virtue of this victory Science '34 reign.*;
as the Inter-class basketball champions on the campus.
Both teams started right in to play
fast ball, but Science '33 couldn't
match their opponents and the half-
time score was 9-2 for Science '34.
Ruggers Set
For Contest
Against Reps
Varsity wiU meet Its old rival
the Vancouver Rep In,the McKechnie Cup tussle. Saturday,
March 19, at Brockton Point. If
the students take the contest
the chances of the trophy re-
urning to the halls of learning
at U.B.C, loom brightly.
Vancouver will have a redoubtable lineup since practically aU those returning from
Japan wUl be on the Rep roster.
Varsity, however, Is not daunted by the formidlble aggregation that wiU represent the city,
and has been practicing hard to
take the aU-stan into camp.
Coach Buck Yeo has had the
collegians training hard at
morning and afternoon practices, and a lot o fthe weak-

Playing its hurt game of the season, Varsity's second string rugby
aquad turned back the ttrong Rowing Club team by a 14-0 count at
Lower Brockton on Saturday, In the
final contest the collegians showed
up remarkably well, and the Rowers
wen unable to cope with the speed

Players of the second and third
teams are reminded that strip can
be turned in now. See Ken Mercer

President M.A.A,
Inter Class Track Meet Scheduled Tomorrow
Varsity Cinder Men
Prepare for Contest
With Tacoma College
Varsity's senior basketball men
have been a little premature, it
seem*, in placing their uniforms In
the proverbial hope chest. Because
apart from next year's ambitions, the
cage artists have another small matter to attend to this season. Apparently the Vancouver and District
League squads, with all of their
twenty games, have not had enough
competition for this year, and under
thc direction of Walter Hardwick are
staging a knockout series.
Naturally the collegian hoopers, always anxious to oblige, are prepared, even delighted to accomodate
the V and D by providing a little
opposition, and will probably he billed to meet the Crusaders some time
this week. It will be Interesting to
see the war that wUl be waged between the proteges of Arnold Henderson and the cohorts of one Lynne
Pickler, two bosom friends.
WhUe the Blue and Gold basket-
ters have broken training, they are
ir. pretty good condition as a result
of their contests with the Adanacs,
and should have little difficulty In
copping the affair. Shores have already eliminated the husky V.A.C.
aggregation, and wUl meet the winner of the Varsity-Crusade struggle.
Just what Is at stake, and whether
an> title will be placed on the brow
of the winner, is not made clear,
but it should be a nice little workout for the collegians. Shores have
been known to provide opposition
for some of the best of the hoopsters
in these parts, while Crusaders are
no set up at times, or between times
as you choose.
If Pi Campbell can forget rowing
and Grouse Mountain, and Tony Osborne can relieve himself of the responsibility that the captaincy of the
team has weighed upon him, the
Blue and Gold cage stars should have
Uttle difficulty In vanquishing any
of these  teams they will  oppose.
Well fcnoum for hit prowett both
on the track and on the basketball
floor, Osborne u>a* popular choice
for the Council position of president
of Men's Athletic*. He received this
pott by acclamation.
Science Faculty
Default to Arts
In Grid Battle
After a week'* careful considera
tion and loud argument, Science have
definitely decided that they will not
be able to do battle with Arte in the
annual Inter-faculty Canadian Rugby
game scheduled for tomorrow. By
virtue of this decision Science is
forced to default to Arts, giving them
the game without a struggle, and
leaving them in possession of the
cup for the second year In a row.
The Science faculty has been trying desperately to get a team together, but too many lectures and
toe many labs left the engineers no
time for practice; and consequently
they lack condition, team and everything but the wish to play.
These grid battles have aroused
great excitement on the campus In
previous years, and the affair will
be  sadly missed this year.
In the second half play was more
even, each side scoring eight points
to make the final tally 17-10. Although both teams played a good
game the score just about represents
the difference' between them.
Co-eds Battle
In Grass Hockey
A real battle was waged Saturday
between the two hockey teams,
U.B.C. finally triumphing over Varsity to the tune of 8-2. Taking advantage of the tardiness of U.B.C.
players Varsity made a beautiful
rush, and scored about two seconds
after the whistle blew. A few minutes later Bea Sutton scored for
U.B.C. The ground was very rough,
the whole game being practically a
gamble as to where the ball would
bounce. Varsity forwards showed
superior combination, as U. B. C.
bunched together, all trying to make
up the absence of one forward. Varsity's main fault was a lack of offensive on the part of the half-backs.
Bea Sutton, scoring five goals, and
Carol Sellars, scoring two, each
played a great game for U.B.C. For
Varsity, Isabel McArthur was outstanding, although she was well-
supported by the other forwards. The
last game of th« season was evidently a subject for experiment with
full-backs playing forward, and
goalie half-hack.
Members of the teams wiU please
report If they intend to go to the
general Hockey Banquet being held
Monday, March 21, at the Commodore Cafe.   Admittance, 85c.

With Stu Keate
Saturday, March 26, is a big date
for the Varsity Jones's and Hagen's.
For on that day they take on the
tough University of Washington divot-diggers, each University presenting an eight-man team. Last year at
Washington U. B. C. were more or
less swamped. They arranged a return game for the local course and
the Washington boys came up. On
the day of the match there was at
least two feet of snow on the ground
and the U. of W. boys returned home
without swinging a club. Let's hope
the weather man gives the boys a
break this year!
• •  •
Incidentally, these inter-collegiate
golf matches are a perfect example
of what inter-collegiate spirit should
be. Last year the Vanity boys were
denied any remuneration at aU for
the Washington encounter. So the
active memben of the club started
a Uttle pubUclty for the match, told
tickets and raised enough oughday
for aU green fees and a nic* banquet. In the letter from Seattle discussing this year's match ElweU Case
("Casey," to the local crew) states:
•The A.S.UA. have cut out expsn-
dlturee this year but our matches
last year wen so Interesting that we
hope to continue our relations—the
boy* wUl pay their own way for a
match on your course."   Congrats,

Many were out Saturday hi preparation for the inter-class track meet
of March 23. This meet is always a
natural "draw" for in one afternoon
tiie much-disputed class supremacy
may be settled. The track is said to
be in first-class condition and it
would be no surprise if a few new
records were hung up.
Athletic authorities of West Point
have announced that, beginning next
year no footbaU player will be allowed to play on the same team as
hi* father;—Oregon State Barometer.
Pub Board
Struck Out
By Council
Displaying a veritable orgy of Babe
Ruth hits, triple plays, and spectacular base sliding, Council's augmented
soft-baU squadron eked out a win
over the Publications Board pill
swatters by the narrow margin of
23-8 when the two expert aggregations tangled on the upper playing
field, Saturday afternoon.
FuUy cognizant of the "divine right
of Council," Manager Vance demonstrated the lessons learned up in the
"pocket edition Olympus" when he
selected a team composed of famous
campus athletes regardless of whether
or not they had any connection with
The first inning was successful for
Pub. as the scribes were able to learn
how the game was played while they
watched the Councillors chalk up 11
runs. Once this typical bit of CouncU
railroading was effected, the Newsies
began to show their stuff though
severely handicapped by the presence
of "Dora" Stanton and "Scoop" Root.
Henderson was effective for Council,
his leather lungs being used to good
advantage at third base, while Whimster provided a convenient buffer for
the odd reporter who arrived at first
The feminine members of the executive squad talked a great game while
Cec Long in particular, showed an
aptitude for grand larceny In the way
she succeeded in stealing bases. Clare
Donaldson talked vigorously throughout the fray but when he started on
a rehearsal of his campaign speech
all present Insisted on a truce.
Bob Osborne, one of the many extraneous experts recruited by the
wily Vance, hit the baU several times
thereby causing much consternation
among the joumalesses who scattered
in aU directions whenever the chance
of a catch in the deep field presented
itself. Despite their intimate acquaintance with "copy," the Ubyssites were
totally unable to copy anyone who
struck the ball. In this particular they
ran true to "type" with which they are
so familiar.
Throughout most of the contest the
printers devils failed to connect with
the offerings of the Council battery,
and were held scoreless until Manager
Vance moved into the box. The hustling prexy seemed to dish them up
in a manner particularly acceptable
to the Pubsters and a series of base
hits, together with a couple of nice
overthrows at first, accounted for the
eight runs that the Muck artists forced
across the plate.
Dick Farrington'* fighting Senior
City Canadian grid squad dung,
grimly to their first place tie with
Meralomas when they downed V.A.C.
at the University Oval Saturday afternoon by 10-2.
The fact that they wen without
the services of Joe Dwyer, star halfback, didn't seem to worry the student* for they started to find holes
in the' opposing line at the outset.
Frank Rush made 35 yard* on two
nice break* and Jack Steele swerved'
and dodged hi* way through for
some lengthy gam*. Frank Rush
kicked to the V.A.C. deadline and
Wright fumbled. In the ensuing
scramble Jack Bourne pounced on
the bail and was credited with a
touchdown. Some V.A.C. supporten
thought that their fuU-back had recovered but referee NeU Watson allowed the touch. Hisette converted
to make tho score 8-0. Vacs retaliated when Wright kicked over the
Varsity deadline and the students
wen rouged for 1 point. In the second quarter, Rush kicked to tho
deadline for Vanity and Wrignt
kicked to Henderson who was rouged,
making the half-time scon 7-t. Thi*
quarter featured one of the most
sensational play* of the day. Vacs
got away for a nice run of about SO
yards but when tackled their man
fumbled. His fumble threw the ball
into the open arm* of a team-mate
v. ho had a clear field ahead of him.
He too sUpped and threw the ball
away. George Henderson of Varsity
tore in from the middle, scooped up
the loose pigskin and proceeded to
skirt the Vac's end for 35 yard* before he could be downed. It was
in this quarter too that Jack Steele
got away the only successful forward pass of the day when he
heaved the leather 30 yards to O'-
Shaughnessy. Bill Morrow went
through the opposing line for 35
yards on two nice bucks and •put
Varsity in position for Rush's kick.
Vacs were held in the third quarter
by sensational tackling, Hlsette and
Harold Poole being particularly outstanding in this department. The latter made more tackles than anyone
else and didn't miss one. Jack
Bourne was on the ball all the time
and scooped up another fumble in
this quarter just for good measure.
Dick King, Kirby and Goumlniouck
broke through the opposing line for
some fine tackles.
Frank Rush continued his good
work in the last quarter when he intercepted a Vac pass. In the last
three minutes of this quarter Hlsette hoisted a nice drop-kick over
the bar to make the final score 10-2
in favor of Varsity.
For V.A.C. it must be said that
they were off-form. Time and again
they fumbled to have a Varsity man
recover and had it not been for their
strong line the score would have
gone even higher. It would be hard
to pick an individual star for Varsity. Every man on the team was
going just right. Jack Steele's
broken field running had the Vacs
dizzy while Henderson, Rush and
Morrow made large gains through
the line. Hlsette played better than
he has aU season and of the tacklers
King, Poole and Bourne were outstanding.    The Varsity line-up:
Morrison, Thornloe, Bourne, Goumlniouck, King, O'Shaughnessy,
Poole, Shellng, Steele, Hisette, Morrow,
Rush, Henderson, McDonald, Crysdale,
Jones, Lydiatt, Sargent, Whiles
