No. 29
GOVERNORSDO
NOT ANSWER
STUDENT PLEA
No Official
Statement
Although a special letter
was sent by Students' Council
to the Board of Governors
Monday evening, asking that
the $25 fee Increase and the
registration limitation be
withdrawn, no answer has yet
been received, Dave Carey declared Thursday.
Council felt that the present publicity campaign being undertaken by a special
atudent committee will have
the result of an Increased
government grant to the
university.
With this in mind, council
asked the governors to consider not raising fees or limiting registration until after
the fall session of the legislature.
Carey and President Klinck
were in conference Tuesday,
but the A.M.S. president declared that "no official statement" was forthcoming from
the government at that time.
Dr. Klinck was absent from
his offlce Thursday and the
Ubyssey was unable to get
any official statement directly
from the Board of Governors.
STRUGGLE FOR
POLITICS CLUB
NEARING  END
Elocution Lectures
Resume Friday
Second in a series of lectures on
elocution will be given in Arts 205
Friday at 12.20 by Mrs. J. P. Morgan.
The Literary Porum, under whose
direction the lessons are being conducted, haB se,t a price of 60c for
the oourse. There will be Ave lectures altogether.
Last term application on the part
of several students with Conservative leanings, for a political club
on this campus was the flrst in a
series of swiftly-moving events that
have kept members of Students'
Council worried, and the neophyte
politicians ln a continual state of
agitation.
Monday   night  council,  with   a
sigh of relief,  moved to end the
long controversy—by passing the
constitution   of   a   Polltleal   Dlsousslon Club, and authorlssd the
group to go ahead with Its activities.
Trouble, however, ls  not of necessity all over yet.    Council deleted
a   section   from   the   much-argued-
over    constitution,    and    outlawed
"study groups," already formed under tbe names  of leading political
parties.
NO  PARTIES
"We don't want parties," declared
John Bird, and added that an open
forum tor political discussion would
be acceptable.
So council struck out section 8,
subsections A and B of the constitution, and laid themselves open
to more attack from the group
which at one time .threatened to
attempt to oust the student leaders,
and at another time nearly succeeded ln precipitating the resignation
of one council member.
Individual parties within the
Polltleal Dlsousslon Olub were Integral features of the new group
—with the weakened constitution,
ths club Is similar to ths Parliamentary Porum, except that debate la restricted to polltleal
questions.

HURT IN LAB.
EXPLOSION
Injuries Not
Serious
Paul Trussel, president of the
Aggie undergrads. Is ln General
Hospital, recovering from Injuries
received when an explosion occurred ln an Aggie lab. shortly after
4 p.m. Tuesday. Gerald Bowerlng
la sufTorlng from minor injuries.
The explosion allegedly occurred during an experiment In
hloh perchloric acid and alcohol
were being used In an attempt to
discover the sodium content cf
the perehlorate.
The resulting reverberation was
heard at several points on the campus. Fragments of test tubes and
splintered wire mesh were shot
around the lab., some of which
struck the two students.
Dean Clement rushed them to the
Hospital.
It is expected that Trussel may
be able to return to the university
by today.
RECEPTION
Mixed reception was given council's actions by leading members of
the Political Discussion Club. One
was quoted as saying 'that it is all
right by us, as long as we can have
our club," while another objected
strongly to the deletion of the
club's sub-committees.
It ls believed, however, that the
club will function with the revamped constitution. Meetings will
be held in "Parliamentary" forum,
and proponents of various political
creeds will fall naturally Into government and opposition benches.
What Use Are Women On
Council Asks Reporter
I      HURT IN BLAST    |
Paul Trussell, energetic Aggie
Undergrad president, who was
injured Tuesday in an explosion
in an Aggie lab. Trussell was
in the lab, with Gerald Bower-
ing, when an explosion shattered
apparatus, sending some of the
pieces into the bodies of the
two students.
By the Council  Reporter
"What use," asked the council
reporter, "are women on Students'
Council?"
"None," answered the male councillor.
"Plenty," the trio ot feminine legislators insisted.
And therein lies an important
point.
You see, women
on council have
been traditional
listeners. Theyi
listen to the argu
ments of their
male colleagues;
or they listen for
the honk ot an
auto born outside
that will summon
them to more interesting entertainment than
that available ln the stodgy, business-like  board  room.
Rarely do they  speak.
NOT PERSONAL
This it not an attribute of the
present women councillors. It ls,
as we have said, traditional.
Mind you, we don't say the gals
don't do any work. Between them,
their out-of-council-session duties
are as heavy as those of the men,
and they carry them off as well,
sometimes better.
But they rarely
speak.
Strange, thle
fact, after all of|
the ballyhoo about
the talkativeness
of the woman, but
we only say what
we know.
They listen, as
we were saying,
to the men fighting over important     Issues,     and
they make up their minds, and they
vote, but in silence.
They are important cogs ln the
machinery of Btudent government,
but they could afford to miss a
council meeting or so because they
rarely speak, and when they do,
they rarely say much.
THEY  WORK
The secretary takes the minutes
and writes the letters; the Women's Undergraduate President
keeps tier girls from tearing each
other's hair (a feat ln itself), and
serves on major committees; and
the Women's Athletic President
worries over awards systems—they
make their motions when they have
to, and then retire into their shells
ot silence.
"What use," asked the male councillor,    "are    women on Students'
Council?"
"P 1 e n t y," answered the council  reporter.
"They know
when to shut UP
and when to talk,
and they know
that shutting up
most of the time
ls the best thing.
They add lustre
to an otherwise dull assembly, and
they keep Mai Brown from swearing—aloud."
The girls thanked the council reporter. Peggy went back to drawing pictures. Mary tried to get a
minute straight. A horn honked
and  Jean  left.
And the men carried on with tbe
business.
ROBOT HOST
AT BALL
A formidable, fourteen-foot high,
brilliantly lighted Robot will be
the combined Quest of honor and
Master of Ceremonies at this year's
Engineer's Frolic on February 17
in Vancouver's Commodore Cabaret.
As In paat yaars, the Imaginative Sclencemen hsvs chosen a
special theme for their Ball, and
1038 sees Mr. Robot In oomplete
charge In the Scarlet "Night of
Nights." Officially, Prexy Jack
Davis announced yesterday that
the "Soience Robot Ball" la the
name of the awing session.
With the Master Robot significantly spotlighted on the stage beside Charley Pawlett's Orchestra,
and smaller Robots representing
tbe different departments, built on
separate tables, the Science executive have spared no effort to produce the mechanical man effect.
ROBOTS AND ROBOTS
In keeping with this novel Idea,
there'll be a 10-year old human robot, properly bedecked ln Crimson
and Silver, acting as your door
host.
And dance programs will be an
addition feature of Sclencemen's
art. Expertly cut to Robot shape,
and with each and every dance appropriately named and cartooned a
la machine-made human they'll be
just one more reason why the Science Ball is always the most grandiose of University social events.
A pep meet the day of the Ball,
with either Sandy de Santla or
Charley Pawlett, will be the first
opportunity of Arts men to obtain tickets. The week prevloua
will find Engineers eagerly snapping up the ducats.
Lending their patronage will be
President and Mrs. L. S. Kllnck.
Dean and Mrs. J. N. Finlayson,
Dea nand Mrs. D. Buchanan, and
Col. Wilkin.

Extensive Plans
For Campaign
Publicity Program
Open House To
Prove Crowding
With the recent rise of public Interest ln the university, sympathetic students can take advantage of
Open House to "strike while the
iron's hot."
On February 12, date set for Open
House, lt will be the duty ot every
student to see
that friends and
relatives pay a
visit to the campus.
By offering the
public a first-hand
impression of conditions existing at
U.B.C, the present funds campaign will be given necessary additional weight,
declares Charlie
House Chairman.
Although two
House days have accomplished
what they set out to do—namely,
to show the public the calibre of
work done on the campus—the current chapter has a two-fold purpose.
It Is evident that, through the
eo-operatlen of m^ary studsnt at
the university, visitors may again
be ahown the variety of academic
and social pursulta tha university haa to offer, while at the same
time they will have definite proof
that statements regarding lack
of accommodation are not without foundation.

QUESTIONNAIRE  SHOWS
CAMPUS   REFORM   DESIRED
Discipline Not
Popular at
Functions
Christmas exams came in for
considerable criticism by the BOO
students answering the recent questionnaire on student relations,
sponsored by the N.C.U.S.
A majority of the answers stated
that the exams failed to prevent
cramming and worked hardships on
students who wrote as many as
four in one day.
BOARD PREVALENT
Out-of-town students find little
difficulty in securing board, results
show. Seventy-four per cent, of the
men would appreciate a full information bureau where they could
find out details of courses, clubs
and other university activities. Of
the freshmen seventy per cent,
favor an advisory group of upper
classmen.
Most of the students belong to at
lease one club. Of those who do
not belong to any club only about
one-third are kept out from financial reasons. More women (80%)
than men (26%) belong to at least
one club. Only about 6% ot the
students belong to more than three
clubs.
Sororities      and      fraternities
Only some 1400 students have so far signed the caution
waivers for money necessary to finance the publicity campaign. Since the seating capacity of the Auditorium is
only slightly over 1000, it is easily understandable that no
more than 1400 were able to get the waiver slips on the
day of the Alma Mater meeting.
Nevertheless it is the duty of every student to support
the campaign. That the financial burden should be borne
by only a percentage is neither satisfactory nor just.
Waiver blanks are available at any time during hours
at the A.M.S. offlce. I would urge all students who have
not already signed to do bo immediately.
Some fifty persons printed instead of signed .their
names on waiver forms. A list of these names is posted
at the foot of the caf stairs. Waivers must be signed to
be valid.
Yours truly,
ROBERT C. R. SMITH,
Treasurer.
claim 31% and 23% respectively.
Of these 19% thought their
groups were too restricted and
87% thought that the rushing
system ahould be reformed.
Sorority women predominate in
this.
A  large percentage of non-fraternity men would like to  see an
organisation parallel to Phrateres
organised on this campus.
TOO" MUCH ATHLETIC
No one seems to be entirely satisfied with the pass system. All
think that there are too many
games on the pass to the exclus'ion
of social functions. 85% of the wo.
men and 00% of the men would like
to see regular informal mixers taking their place in campus life. At
present only a few of the students
(4%) attend all social functions. A
minority favors "draws." Of these,
some believe they should be "cooked" so that height and race may be
considered. 54% of the students
would support a date bureau and
Saturday night stag dances.
The general concensus of opinion is that class parties should be
restricted to the class concerned.
It was pointed out that only 83
out   of   400  went  to  the  senior
clasa party on passes.
Less than one-half of the student
body know more than three faculty
members.    Over    a    quarter  know
none at all.   In .this connection it
might   be   pointed   out   that   four-
flfths   of  the   students   favor   the
weekly   istudent-faculty   teas,   but
only   one-fifth   attend.    Many   students would like to see a system of
faculty     advisors    for    4-6     year
courses.
CREDIT FOR CLUBS
Many students feel that credit
should be given for extra curricular
activities. They advocate compulsory public speaking courses, discussion clubs, art and music appreciation courses and "co-education
in sports."
Only 26% of the students are
familiar with the working of the
discipline committee. A large percentage of them think that the
committee should include student
and faculty members.
Whole Province
To Be Covered
Morris Belkin, chairman ot the
committee chosen by Students'
Council to proceed with a program
of educating public opinion in favor ot the university, announced
Thursday details ot the plans
drawn up for the long-term publicity drive.
Working with Belkin will bo Bd
Disher, Carson Magulre, Malcolm
Brown and Charlie Campbell, each
to be in charge of a section of the
program.
An extensive campaign to be
undertaken by the special committee will utilise the propaganda
possibilities of radio, newspaper
and motion pictures. In addition,
apeakera will be lined up who
will be prepared to present the
university's ease for a larger government grant.
A series of radio programs is being prepared by Malcolm Brown,
who hopes to have programs directed at various sections of British
Columbia. In each program, tbe
work done by students from a certain district will be emphasised,
and advance publicity in local papers will be used to attraot attention to the program.
SPEAKERS
Statistics are being gathered for
the use of apeakera, who will be
sent to service olubs, schools and
any other organisations willing to
co-operate In the student drive.
The newspapers will be a major
factor in the publicity campaign.
Feature stories ot research projects
being carried on by students will
be provided by the committee to reporters, and it ls expected that the
city dailies in particular, and to
some extent local weeklies, will
open their columns to university
publicity.
Evsry attempt will be made by
the committee, according to Belkin, to emphasise In publicity the
role played by the university In
the life of the province. Importance of the unlveralty In Induatry
and tho arta will be featured.

La   Kermette
Heroique
The Film Society announces with
considerable pride and joy the
showing on Friday next of one of
the finest pictures ever produced
in and by the continent of Europe.
It comes to the campus jingling
with a string of international
awards and medals, infused with
gaiety, bawdry, and song, rich with
seventeenth-century costume, and
crackling with lnuendos.
BOURGEOIS
"La Kermesse Heroique' is the
title, France is the country of origin, Belgium is the locale, the Spanish invasion provides the material.
The picture portrays with considerable irony and guffawing the life
and morals of burgeols town society, contrasting the bumbling Ignorance of the burghers with the
resourceful seductiveness of the
burghers' wives, and showing how
the latter are employed to arrange
an amicable settlement with invading Spanish officers.
"La Kermesse" was shown two
months ago at the Stanley theatre
for the National Film Society, and
informally judged the most successful picture of their current
season.
Tickets for the U.B.C. season
are now reduced to 35c, and are
on sale at the Quad. Forthcoming showings Include the torrid
Valentino feature, "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."
A   considerable   number    suggested Ha abolishment at social
function   and   many   favored   no
liquor restrictions.   All felt that
some measure of discipline was
necessary in the Library.
The       suggested       "orientation
course" was widely favored.   Many
felt  that  it was  absolutely  necessary in any university currciulum. Two

WHY SECRECY?
The main course of the studenta campaign for better
terms for the U.B.C. has for the time being veered away from
direct representations to Mr. Pattullo and his Liberal Government. The public, the faculty, and the daily newspapers
have in their various ways shown decided approval. Settled
down, well organized now, and operating smoothly, those in
charge of the campaign have three main objectives.
They want next year's budget to include a much larger
appropriation for the University, along with grants for greater accommodation. They want to bring the public to a greater realization of the value of the University, with a view as
well to bringing the influence of strong public opinion to bear
on the government.
And in the meantime, they want the Board of Governors
to rescind their motions requiring higher fees and limiting
attendance.
A motion requesting the Board to do the necessary rescinding went over from the Students' Council Monday night.
Presidents Klinck and Carey were in conference Tuesday
morning over the matter, but so far no decision has been
announced. The intimation, however, is that it was in the
negative.
Why such secrecy is necessary is difficult to understand.
Why the doings of the Board should not be open always to
those they concern most—the students—or to their responsible representatives, is equally difficult to understand.
In any case, the Students' Council must not allow itself
to be satisfied with a straight refusal from the Board. There
seems to be considerable hope that the Student Campaign
will reach a successful culmination in the Fall. To raise the
fees and apply restrictions for one year alone would be as
useful as galoshes on flsh. The university should be able to
carry on for at least one year under the present circumstances.
Students should make sure that more money is desperately needed in the University's budget, before they agree to
supply it. The Governors apparently could not themselves
convince the government of the need — unless they reveal
good reasons, they will not be able to convince the students.
BARRIER TO EDUCATION
(An editorial appearing In the "Toronto Varaity," January 27.)
Students at the University of British Columbia are up
in arms about a proposal to limit attendance by increasing
fees next year. We cannot say that we blame them. Thu
university may be overcrowded; and no doubt the measure
will succeed in limiting the attendance, but deliberately to
increase fees for such a purpose is an atrocious and indefensible aggravation of one of the worst curses of higher education.
There are two possible views which the governors of a
university might be expected to hold. They might wish to
achieve fame for their university, as the alma mater of brilliant men. Or they might harbour an altruistic desire to
raise the general standard of education. In either case, high
fees, which limit the attendance in a most undemocratic-
fashion, and form a four-year millstone around many a student's neck, are to be regarded as an obstacle, rather than an
aid to the proper functioning of a university.
Many people regard universities as playgrounds for sons
of the idle rich—places where over-grown children manage to
be idle and frivolous, and at the same time busily engaged in
learning about bad things like Communism and Atheism and
Evolution. This impression is bound to remain as long as it
is even partially true. And the-final sector in the vicious
circle is that it is this contemptuous attitude which causes
legislatures to curtail university subsidies, and hence further
increase fees.
VARSITY TIME
It is with relief that we have heard of the proposed reorganization of the administration of the student radio program, Varsity Time. For more than three months, audiences
have suffered more or less quietly while listening to a program that was far from perfect in any of its departments.
Based on what is now realized was a mistaken policy, Varsity
Time got off to a bad start.
No amount of technical improvement or good direction
was able to overcome the basic difficulty facing the Varsity
Time staff—a poor policy that hampered the staff in their
attempts to please both public and those in charge of programs. The program, one of the best ideas to come out of
the active mind of Malcolm Brown, was designed by that
member of council as a medium for telling the public that the
university was in truth a haven of respectability and seriousness.
L.S.E. clubs were allotted various programs, and the
responsibility for their producing a program was left to the
club executives. Brown made himself the administrator of
Varsity Time, appointed Struan Robertson as program director. In addition, a large staff of department heads was
appointed—most of whom did nothing, and those in direct
charge were forced to take over complete control.
Since then, under the direction of Robertson, who has
worked exceptionally hard to fulfill the aim set down by
Brown, Varsity Time has been produced week after week,
never with very oustanding results.
Now, with a new policy in view, it is to be hoped that
Brown and his staff of two or three will revise Varsity Time,
forgetting to some extent the attempt to be completely serious. Variety in presentation will help, as will added rehearsals, and better script preparation. We await with anticipation the new Varsity Time. Without doubt, it will be better
than the old.
Random Ramblings

THE  STUDENT
PRINCE
"••CPRING," announced the Genius   importantly,  "has  come!"
With all the dignity of a duchess
christening a flagship, he knelt and
lifted a patch of snow from n discouraged  looking crocus tip.
"Gallant little crocus," he orated.
"You and 1 know that winter is
dead, even if the foolish and pessimistic world does not agree. And
look at those nodding pussy willows, and—bless my soul!—here
comes the first robin! Welcome
back, friend Robin ..."
"It's a crow," we re mark eel
grumpily, "and it's probably flying
South in despair to join the more
intelligent birds." We blew our
nose again.
"Smell thnt air," commanded the
Genius, unabashed by interruptions.
"Did you ever smell such air, clean
with the freshness of the open sea
nnd fragrant from the budding
woods and the February fields . . ."
"Ad the aggie bard," we added
morosely picking our way across a
lake  of slush.
LITTLE   STARS  OF   POONA
"AH, Spring!" continued the
Genius, and we could see his
eyes taking on that fixed, glassy
look that usually precedes a passage of impromptu poetry. "Spring
always reminds me of my boyhood
und the old restlessness that used
to seethe through my bones, and
the call of far places that would
follow me everywhere ..."
"Poona?" we suggested helpfully.
"No, not Poona," replied the Genius from the depths of his trance,
"Paris, with clouds of pigeons In
every cathedral square, and the
Sussex Downs, and Bucharest and
the Danube. With a donkey cart
and a concertina a man could spend
his life roaming through Europe
and  never grow  bored  . .  ."
"What about Mudagascur'.'" wo
suggested. "Now there's u name
with   a   ring   to   it!"
The Genius didn't like Madagascar.
"Well, there's Nuka-Hiva," we
suggested, "or Mani-Kura. Have
you ever heard the sound the trade-
winds make in palms all night or
the thunder of surf on coral reefs
or seen a torch dance of the Southern  Cross?"
"Have you?" demanded the
Genius.
WELTSCHMERZ   UND
WANDERLUST
V*?/IC admitted we hadn't. Then we
made the Genius admit tie had
never seen a pigeon in a cathedral
square tu Paris. He hadn't even
seen I'aris. Neither of us, ln tact,
had ever been as far as the Atlantic.     It  was  all   very  depressing.
The Genius had beon as far south
as Oregon once with a circus, and
we had almost been to Alberta on
a freight train. We might, easily
have gone fui-tlioi- than that, but for
a Mounted Policeman at Ited Pass
.Inaction wlio had stabled us In tlie
local calaboose for tlio night. Somehow we haven't, felt tile same about
Nelson Kddy since lie played those
U.C.M.P.   roles.
"The trouble with you.'' said the
Genius, "is that you are bourgeois.
You have no soul! l)on't you ever
long   to   Get   Away   Prom   It   All?"
Just then we felt it on our cheek.
The Genius might have Interpreted
it as a tender kiss from Mother
Nature. But to our bourgeois soul
It   was   Just   another   snowflako.
Female  Pepsters
May  Organize
A women's pep organization may
be   formed   on   the   campus   in   the
near   future,   according   to   reports
from    tlie    Pep   Club.      A   group   of
freshettes are considering  the ideu,
and   have   even   worked   out   u   preliminary form of their constitution.
Rules  of  the   organization   will
Involve  an   "anti-man"  campaign,
under which   any  member of the
club   who   dates   the    same   man
more than four times will be penalized.
More   ambitious    clauses    include
a    pledge    never   to    marry,   and   a
rough  draft of methods in  which a
women's  pep organization  might be
useful   to   the   Alma   Mater   Society.
Whether  or  not   the  group  will  apply  to  Htudents'  Council  for recognition   lias  not  yet   been  decided.

Plans Under Way
For Campus Rink
And Dance Hall
What do U.B.C. studente think
of the erection of a skating rink
on  the  campus?
A certain section of the student body is quietly working on
plans for such a building, hoping
to spring them in detail on the
student   body   soon.
Possibility that the skating
rink could be converted into use
as a dance hall also exists, although sposors of the rink plan
are indefnite about their proposals.
CORRESPONDENCE
"It's going to snow some moro,"
we remarked cleverly, and went into   a   violent   sneeze.
"You've trampled on that crocus!
The first crocus of the season and
you had to trample on it!", the Genius was howling whon wo could
hear again.
Silent, and disgusted we trudged
back to the Caf through the blizzard, to wait for Spring's arrival
under more clement circumstances.

Editor, The  Ubyssey.
Dear   Sir:
A sick-bed is a swell ringside
seat when you have a typewriter—
the typist does not always hit the
rights keys, of course, when lying
on  his  back.
However, congratulations to the
student body for its courageous and
level-headed adoption of last Monday's program—and for backing up
its vote with cash.
That illusive thing called "spirit"
is not built up overnight nor is it
maintained by simply sitting back
antl wanting it. The indications observed by the overthrow of first,
the Frosh snake parade, and, second, the Inter-faculty fights, and the
overwhelming acceptance of the
Victoria invasion, and the support
by a strong though minority group
of the political discussion group
make it apparent to all who would
observe that Varsity is truly become  mature as well  as of age.
Let us hope we maintain the tradition for hard work by staying
behind this movement and see this
new publicity carried on as a continuous process to build up and
maintain a position in the Province that can only be ours if we
take  it.
Ijet us also hope that next year
the students will have a council
that desires progress and can furnish leadership that may bring
about some tangible results. To
Mai. Brown I offer orchids—he has
done a darn good job and has driven buses as well. As for the rest
of Council they probably have done
their best, too. but Just didn't have
the good fortune to do it in the
proper places or the acceptable directions.    Poor   Council!
If next year's Council can do
about half as well aa this year's
"Pub" staff (I am not on it, of
course) we should have a wonderful
year.
Here's hoping I go blind before
someone sees some hidden meaning
in the above epistle and plasters
the Ubyssey with replies. Good
luck  for now!
Yours sincerely,
Frank    Thorneloe.
Model League of
Nations Planned

Dalhousie    University    and    some

University  of  New   Brunswick   will
be represented by one or mure delegates.

Gladstone Murray
Commends Canadian
University Press Work
OTTAWA, Fob. :>.. — W. K. Gladstone Murray, head of the C.B.C,
in au interview today, praised the
newly formed Canadian University
Press and called It "A new forum
of expression." The founder nnd
the first Editor-in-Chief of the McGiil  Dally Bald:
"It is 27 years since  I waa privileged  to   have   been   assoolated
with   the   McOill   Dally  as founder of the first Canadian journal of
its   kind.
"I  have a special Interest;  therefore,    In    congratulating   the   Daily
and its fellow-menibers of tlie C.U.
P.  in  its splendid  new co-operative
enterprise.      It   seems   to   me   that
nothing   but   good   can   come   from
this  development.     It  gives  undergraduate!   opinion   iu   Canada   as   a
whole,  a  new forum  of expression.
It  also  makes  possible  the  exercise
of  the  Joint   Influence  of  the   20,000
undergraduates   of   tlie   12   universities   concerned.
"This achievement goes far
beyond the not unadventurous
dreams of 1911 and 1912. It gives
a new sense of reality to the conceptions of the brave new world
of young  Canada."
Bennett Greater
Statesman Than.
Mackenzie King
"Bennett, is a greater statesman
than Mackenzie King." Such was
tlie decision of the Parliamentary
Forum at the noon hour debate
held  yesterday.
Victor Freeman opened the case
of    the    government.     He    maintained that  Bennett had led Canada   through   the   depression   by
the   concessions   he   reoeived   for
Canada at the  1932 Imperial Conference.
Graham   Darling   led   the   opposition.      He     traced     the     scholastic
background   of  our   present   Prime
Minister,   claiming   that   King   was
more    suited    for    the    position    of
leading  statesman  In the  country.
The   vote  taken  at  the  conclusion  of the   debate  was  52 to  27
in   favor  of  the   resolution.

MYSTERIOUS OCCURENCE IN
WOMANS COMMON ROOM
By JACK MERCER
A Ubyssey reporter Is now
convinced that Bergon's' faith in
intuition and Anaximenes theory
of air as the ultimate reality are
final truths.
It was Saturday afternoon and
the aforementioned reporter was
aware that the student population
had migrated, yet there seemed a
sniull voice within him whispering
that something was about to turn
up.
An irresistible force drew him
through   the  empty   halls   of  the
Arts   building,  yea,  even  to  the
threshold of  the  Women's Common   Room   where   an   amazing
spectacle  met  his   popping  eyes.
six men appeared amidst a hellish
upheaval In that feminine "holy-
of-holies"   ...  a   vision  of  stupendous   sacrilege  and   desecrating devastation.
Unobserved,   the   reporter  sidled
into a niche in the wall from where
he scrutinized the scene before him.
Close at hand at a table George
Kidd and a companion were seated,
fists upheld to their mouths, heads
hung back like guzzling fowls . . .
smacking  their  lips  and  whacking
each other's  backs  With chortles of
delight.
SCREAMS
Nearer   the   window,  Pat   Fowler
stood     with     empty     outstretched
hands.     "Here    is   the    coat   of   a
Christian   man,"  he  guffawed.
The   reporter   rubbed   his  eyes.
At that moment Dacre Harrett-
Leonnard crept forward, his eyes
distended with terror, his mouth
revealing    an    awesome    cavity:
"He's    follow in'    after   me,"   he
screamed, glancing behind him.
The  reporter rose to his tiptoes,
looked  furtively  through  the  window . . . sank again.
Archie Bain emerged reluctantly
Speaker on Town
Planning at Institute
Saturday night's lecture of the
Vancouver Institute will be held In
Room 100 In the Arts Building.
Speaker will be J. Alexander Walker, C.K., Secretary and Engineer
for the Vancouver Town Planning
Commission. His subject will be
"The Economics .of Vancouver's
Town Plan," and will be illustrated
by   slides.
Mr. Walker's lecture is a substitution for that listed to he given
by Mr. M. E. Nichols, Managing
Director of tile "Province," who has
been called east on business,
from an outraged chesterfield, then
collapsing suddenly into a state of
utter exhaustion  crossed the room
and slumped on a chair.
''Take   out  your  turnip,"   said  a
feminine  voice.
FEAR
The i-eporter's liver trembled
with apprehension as he viewed
none other than Miss Somerset, the
arch-enemy  of intruders.
Archie took a handful of air from
his pocket and munched with avidity.
"Oh, dear," sighed Miss M., "you
forgot to put down your mug."
With  infinite patience Ai-chie  reversed   the   process,   made   handles
with care and precision and finally
resumed his meticulous mastication.
Suddenly  into the room strode
the figure of Pauline Scott, symbol   of   Irish   passion,   who   advanced upon Archie with flames
of Are. jetting from her flashing
eyes.   "Oo you want me to knock
the head off you with the end of
this broom,"  she  snarled.
"What   broom,"   gasped   the   reporter  .  .  . and fainted.
With the regaining of consciousness, Beth Gillanders was seen staring at Archie with amused interest.
AIR MILK
There he is," said Pauline, green-
eyed and gestulating, "He's drinkin'
his mug of milk."
And sure enough, the poor lad
was forcing his Adam's apple to
undulate as the bovine-flavoured
air flowed past his tonsils , . . then
with a sigh of contentment he
stretched out on two chairs of male
variety: "It's a nice bed," he said
sweetly.
"For the love of all things sacred," gasped the reporter.
Seven heads turned as one; seven
eyes thrust forth daggers; seven
mouths   erupted:
"WHO ARE YOU," echoed and
re-echoed through the empty
cloisters.
In place of the reporter there
stood a six-foot column of air
gently vacillating in the corner.
The rehearsal of Act I. of "The
Playboy of the Western World"
continued with no further interruption.
Vine to Present
Insurance Scheme
Lyall Vine gave notice to Students' Council Monday night that
he is preparing detailed information on the cost of compulsory athletic Insurance for players on all
major  sport   first   teams.
Council will Investigate tlie question at an early meeting. It ts
believed that some change In tlie
Insurance scheme will be necessary,
because of the fact that present arrangements are  unsatisfactory.

the criticism of the Montreal

PRINGLE STARS AS VARSITY
WINS CRUCIAL TILT 34-26
Thunderbirds Overtake Churchmen In Closing
Minutes; Hoopers Now In First Slot
By JACK MAIR
"Joe" Pringle became the hero of the hour Wedneaday  night
when he dropped In two baskets In the last quarter of a hard-fought
battle to turn the tide for the Thunderbirds and enable them to tuck
away a decisive 84-20 win over Ryerson.
RALLY IN LAST ROUND
Trailing at the half-way mark,
Collegians were unable to catch
the fleet Churchmen until midway through the last quarter,
when Pringle sank two beautiful
long ahota to knot the count at
26 all. In the closing mlnutea of
the game, the Thunderbirda
rushed the Ryerson quintet off
their feet and piled up an 8-polnt
lead before the final blast.
The Churchmen took the lead
In the early part of the tilt but
were quickly overtaken by the
Blue and Oold aquad, who held a
two-point margin at quarter time.
TRAILING   13-17  AT HALF
The lead see-sawed back and
forth until midway through the
second period, when Ryersons, led
by Pratt and McLeod, pulled away
from the 'Birds to lead 17-13 at
half time.
After the breather, the Churchmen held their edge until near the
end of the quarter when the Collegians knotted the count at 22 all.
MOMENTARY  LEAD
Osborne opened the final stansa
with a brace of baskets to give
Ryerson a momentary lead. At
thia point the atudenta got under
way and, led by Pringle and
Matheson, they passed the
Churchmen in a cloud of dust to
end the tilt with an 8-point
margin.
Ian McLeod lead the scoring for
the visitors with 10 points, while
Bud Matheson waa the standout for
the Thunderbirds, chalking up 11
markers.

Arts *30 To Be

Arts '20 Scheduled
For Feb. 16th
The perennial pavement pounders come Into their own again next
week, when the annual Arts '30
Mall Race is scheduled to come off.
The grind is to begin at 12.20 Tuesday, weather permitting, with the
contestants running, staggering,
crawling or otherwise negotiating
the Mall four times round—and the
winner becoming the campus hero
until further notice.
POINTS  POR  PIRST TEN
Eaeh elass la allowed five entries and the points garnered go
toward the coveted Governor's
Trophy. Points will be allotted
to the teams entering and to the
flrst ten finishers, so all olass
reps are urged to get their teams
In order.
The Arts '20 marathon is also
near at hand, the date being February 16th, and the boys are getting
in trim for the traditional run from
the old VarBlty Bite to the present
one.
PENDRAY  PAVORED
Vance McComber, star middle
distance man ot the campus and
winner of the Arts '30 last year,
has signified his intention of confining himself to the shorter distances and this throws the race
wide open. Wilf Pendray now
takes the Inside position and his
smart second ln the same race last
puts lots of money on this mara-
thoner. But Ward de Beck is
somewhat of a dark horse in the
contest and his smart showings in
previous races this year make him
an equal favorite with the high-

closing minutes of Wednesday

put them over the top.

Aggies' Sciencemen Win
In 'Mural Volleyball
Fireworks on the Intral-mura
front for this week were supplied
by the "fighting farmers" and "the
terrible teachers," as two hot volley ball games saw the Aggies upset the strong Arts '38 squad and
the Kducatlon boys give the favored Science 88' team a bad scare
ln  a three-game  tilt.
AGGIES  CRASH  WIN  COLUMN
The Aggies broke into the win
column for the first time this year
when they took the Senior Artsmen
into camp ln two straight games by
scores pt 15-10 and 15-5. In the
other match. Education pulled a
near upset as they took the first
game from the Sclencemen by a
15-11 count and showed promise ot
taking last year's champs to the
cleaners. But the men of science
came back strong to take the next
two games, 15-4 and 15-7,and strengthen their threat to annex the volleyball championship again and add
more pointa to their total in the
race for the Governor's Trophy.

Thunderbirds to
Meet Munrot
Firmly ensconsed ln first place
again by virtue of their thrilling
win over the Ryerson quintet Wed-
desday, the Varsity melon tossers
now have only one more tough
hurdle to leap in order to enBure
themselves a playoff slot.
TO   MEET   MUNRO
The "do or die" tilt Is with the
Munro squad whom they meet on
Saturday night at the V.A.C. gym.
In their last start, the furriers
Bwamped Ryersons by 25 points and
if they can keep their new-found
power in motion they should give
the students quite a battle.
LAST TILT
For the Thunderbirds' last league
game the Adanacs come to the
campus next Wednesday night. On
their last visit here, the Westminster squad came through with a
win due to some over-confidence on
the part of the studes. With the
possible chance of being eliminated
if they lose this game, Varsity will
be taking no chances and should
have little trouble In copping the
tilt.
Anglicans   Beat
Unjonmen 3-0
Theolog Trundlers Stage
Traditional Battle
In the traditional theolog soccer
battle on the campus field last Friday, the masquerading roundballers
from Union College tasted defeat
for the second time at the hands
of the neatly-clad Anglicans by a
score ot 3-0.
While at least 60 wild-eyed
fsns cheered them on, the Union-
men took the field In motley garb
and with stout hsart faoed their
Blue and Red-clad opponents.
Sustained Anglican raids early In
the contest were professionally
repulsed by Pepster Grant Cameron, In a pink underwear and
pyjama ensemble, and basketball
hero "Joe" Pringle.
HALP TIME  SCORE 0-0
After a hectic period of rousing
exchanges, half-time was weloomed
with no score by either team. Certain members of both sides were
seen' to be breathing somewhat
heavily during the rest period but
every man kept his dignity very
commendably.
The opening of the second half
gave the Anglicans a chance to display their real worth. Several of
them, once they had secured their
second wind began to display evidence of at least former, If not current greatness. Their Trojan efforts
were rewarded before long when
they pierced Union defense to tally
three times during he latter part
ot the half.
Local Natators to Stage
Swim Meet Sat. Night
Archie Byers, energetic prexy of
the Varsity swimming club, has
lined up another meet for the local splashers. The University of
Oregon will meet the local natators
in the Crystal Pool Saturday night
for what promises to be a first
class swim meet.
Oregon are rated tops in the Pacific Northwest, having carried off
the championship last year and,
says Archie, they placed three men
on the All-American Intercollegiate
swimming team.
However, the local natators feel
confident that they will be able at
least to make a good showing in
the coming  meet.
The meet Is slated for 7.30 and
the admission Is free.

Match
BETTY FLECK, RUTH
SELDON RECEIVE
RECOGNITION
Two of Varsity's popular coeds, Betty Pleek and Ruth Seldon, have received Dominion-
wide recognition In Canadian
Lawn Tennia and Badminton,
offlelal organ of the same association. Both theae girls are top
notch In city shuttling and ars
considered potential threats for
Canadian Junior and senior
titles. Betty Is la the present
elty women's singles champ,
having defeated Ruth In the annual tournament laat December.
The latter was ceded No. 1 In
the contest, but according' to the
above magaslne, "Mlas Ploek's
brilliant smashes, combined with
almost flawless defensive tactics
proved too much for the promising Junior star."
In the same article they are
considered "worthy successors
to the Underbills, the Patricks,
and ths Blrehs."
With the B. C. Badminton
Championships opening In Victoria today Betty Ruth and Alex
McDonald have sailed to the

LOST LAST WEEK
The grads, so far In this series,
have not been able to garner m
point, while the students have tho
grand total of two.   That thla la
not four, la the result of their
heart-breaking last minute defeat
at the hands of Rowing Club last
week.
The second divisioners will field
the same team that played in Htm
previous games and, if they have
not got the finesse of the regular
flrst stringers, they show the same
flght and do-or-die spirit.
With Basil Robinson kicking field
goals in his usual manner and Phil
Griffin playing the fullback position
a la Johnny Bird, the Studes should
have little trouble in garnering the
two markers.
GRUDGE BATTLE
On Wednesday   at   the stadium,
the  rugby  tidbit   of   the year is
promised   when   the   flrst   division
team tangles with the second divi-l

and   with   everything   to   win   ana
nothing to lose the second team is
positive   that   they   can   take   the
powerful flrst team into camp.
Captain Dobbie and tho managers aay that every player has
to turn out and that there will
be no auch thing aa an excuse. It
will certainly be an epic struggle
and one that no rugby fan ahould
miaa. —SHIRREFF.
