Technocratic Machine Age
America's Coining Utopia
Howard Scott Attacks Cultural Traditions
Before Large Student Audience
Says Day Is Coming When Work Will No
Longer Be Necessary—Machines Increasing
By DORWIN BAIRD
"Technocracy is the application of physical science techno-
logically to the control of production of extraneous energy; it
has none of the 'hooey' of universal brotherhood," stated Howard Scott, chief of Technocracy Incorporated, when he addressed
a large student audience in the auditorium Tuesday noon.
Scott opened his talk by assailing the cultural standards of
the world to-day, digressed a little to call all politicians dirty
racketeers, told us that we'll never give birth to a real idea as
long as we are educated in a "Hamburg-sandwich psychology,"
until the audience finally got worked up to the proper degree of
hate that the speaker wanted.
!J Then he started to talk about Technocracy.
"In all social history," commenced*
Mr. Scott, "we've had to depend on
man as the chief ener£y,-producing
machine. Our preyiouf* civilizations
have risen and fafien/ln fbout 1300
years each. The prestotJjfan of civilization differs becawmir rate of
converting energy is rapidly accelerating. This civilization will fall much
quicker because of its speedy ascent."
To Illustrate his points the speaker
drew several graphs on the board to

MACHINES INCREASING
"Whereas a century ago only 2 percent of the energy produced in the
world was produced by machines, today we have that picture reversed
and human beings are responsible for
only 2 percent of the total energy
production," Scott explained.
"Today 44-100 of a pound of coal
is more useful than eight hours of a
man's labor," stated the god of the
Technocrats "and coal doesn't possess
the moronic quality of democracy—
that of talking back."
This remark drew some applause,
but later on the speaker explained
his views of Fascism saying, "It is
the consolidation of all the minor
rackets into one monopoly for the
protection and preservation of the
price system," which also drew applause and gave Mr, Scott the mistaken view that the audience were

Dean Buchanan To
Address Institute
"An Expanding Universe" is the
subject on which Dean D. Buchanan
will speak at the Vancouver Institute
on Saturday night. He will trace the
history of the development of knowledge from the time when the earth
was thought to be the centre of the
universe to the present day, when
modern astronomers have discovered
the universe to be of almost unbelievable extent.
The lecture will be in Arts 100,
commencing at 8:15. Mr. Oeroge E.
Winter, President of the Institute, will
preside. All Institute lectures are
free to the public.
FLASH!
Peter Disney, President of the Parliamentary Forum, reports the receipt
of a wire from Jay Gould last night.
Jay is on a debating tour of Eastern
Canadian Universities and wired that
so far the Western pair have won two
and lost two debates against Eastern
teams.

"Educational leaders are turning
th.eir eyes more and more to the hotel "business as a profession for uni-
graduates," stated Mr. R. W.
udsSi.^ariager of the Hotel Georgia, in his Vocational Guidance lecture to the students last Wednesday
noon in Arts 100. In his talk he outlined the opportunities available to
students in his line of business.
Thc speaker emphasized the necessity for students to choose their profession long before completion of their
course, and to endeavour to make
themselves adapted to the line of
business they intend to follow. "Summer jobs are the best way to adapt
yourself to future security, the first
rung of the latter of success will be
mounted, but apply yourself to whatever job you take,'   he stated.
Speaking of the hotel business the
speaker gave the view from "the outside looking in," indicating the many
departments that the manager has
supervision over, such as the engineering, stores, housekeeping and
ivception. He went on to state that
the reception clerks would be the best
department for the university student
to enter, the qualifications for such
a job being an even disposition, a
good memory and the ability to satisfy the whims and fancies of the
public.
The speaker advised the students of
the tact needed in applying for a
job—"remember that the manager of
a concern is a busy man, write him
a letter, outlining your experience,
references, education and aspirations
and ask him for a private Interview,
you are more likely to get a job this
way than to blunder into an office
asking to see the manager." He closed
his address in stating, "Above all
watch and guard your health, good
health is the most essential factor towards success in business life."
Beverley Oaten
Visiting Campus
Beverley Oaten, the General Secre
tary of the Student Christian Movement in Canada, will be on the
campus for a number of days. He has
been meeting with groups on all of
the western campuses, and brings a
wealth of knowledge of student
thought and activity, Mr. Oaten is a
graduate of Toronto, and studied theology at Union and Boston. For a
number of years before going to California as a student secretary, he assisted G. O. Fallls at Canadian Memorial. This past summer he was one
of the three delegates from Canada
to the World Student Christian Federation meeting at Bulgaria.
FORUM VOTES
DOWN FORCE
Opposes Any Military
Action on Behalf
of League
FAVORS ECONOMIC BANS
U.B.C. students will not fight in
the event of military sanctions against
Italy. That was the decision of the
Parliamentary Forum on Tuesday
night, when the question: "Resolved,
that in the event that military sanctions are imposed against Italy, this
house will fight in accordance with
the decision," was debated.
The affirmative was led by Frank
Thornloo, who opened with a review
of  Canada's  obligations   under   the
covenant.
COVENANT OBLIGATIONS
"Under Articles IS and 16 of the
Covenant, any nation which commits
an act of aggression against any member nation shall be deemed Ipso facto
to have committed an act of war
against all member nations. On October 7th, power was given the league
to Impose military sanctions. We have
the power, and we should use It."
He briefly reviewed the history of
the Italo-Ethiopian controversy, after
which he closed with another appeal
to stand by the covenant.
Tom Marshall, leader of the negative, declared himself as in favor of
economic sanctions, but stated that
the policy of military sanctions would
only involve the world in another
war.
AGREEMENT IMPOSSIBLE
"Let us picture this crusade of
righteousness. Here we have the forces
of Justice arrayed ln their shining
white armour against the forces of
Evil and Oppression. For a short time
the forces of Evil are defeated. A conference is held to determine what to
do with Italy. But of course some
nations can't agree. They quarrel
over tho awards for their trouble and
in a short time we have the forces
of righteousness at each other's throats
and another mad and merry scrap in
full swing."
Speakers from the floor followed,
Negative speakers spoke against the
covenant, Madeleine Bowden stating:
"The League is a flop."
John Dauphinee utilized the speech
of Howard Scott  in his arguments.
"Practically," ho said, "North America is an economic unit. We can
stay out of wars, and combine economically with the U.S. to sell supplies
to the warring nations in Europe."
EMPIRE FOR PEACE
John Conway, speaking for thc affirmative, stated1 "We must choose between Italian and British Imperialism.
British Imperialism, whatever its
faults may be, is at least doing constructive work on the side of peace."
When the vote was taken, a preponderance of negative votes resulted.
Prof. Day announced that there
would probably be one more noon
hour debate. This is to be on a Monday in order not to interfere with
the Intra Mural Sport Program.

Interviews On
Board Decision
John Harrison, Pres, M.A.A.
"The Board's decision will be a
great help ln promoting intramural sport. With the aid of Instructors all students will be
given a chance In some form of
athletics which formerly have
been confined to a limited number."
Bern Brynelsen, Pres. A.M.S.:
"The Governors' move Is a great
thing for Intramural athletics.
The appointment of Instuctors
will go a long way to putting
Intramural sport on a properly
organised basis."
Harvey Carruthers, Publicity
Director, Intramural Sport: "To
my mind the lack of physical
Instruction has been one of the
most appalling evils existing on
the campus. This move will not
clean the campus of all such
faults but It Is a step In the
right direction."
Jim
Beveridge in  Humorous
Part and Art. Sager
As Ghost Good
With the polished humorous performance of Jim Beveridge as Gaston
in "Villa For Sale" stealing the entire evening performance from the
more serious, more effective playing
of Arthur Sager as the ghost in
"Scenes from Hamlet," the annual
Christmas plays of tho Players' Club
were presented before a student audience in the Auditorium last night.
Although the farcical antics of the
principals in "Villa for Sale" proved
much more acceptable to the young
members of the student body who attended the first night presentation,
Soger's interpretation will doubtless
prove the outstanding single performance before the more mature audience
who will view the plays this evening.
The programme opened with the
Cockney farce: "It's the Poor Wot
'Elps the Poor," by Harold Chapin.
The play was directed by Mr. E. V.
Young of the Vancouver Little Theatre, one of the outstanding performers in Vancouver amateur theatrical
circles.
"It's the Poor Wot 'Elps the Poor"
proved to be the weakest single play
of the entire evening. Featured by the
over-acting of Lloyd Hobden who
walked away witn the performance
since he failed to live down to the
limitations of his part at the expense
of the other players, the performance
was unacceptable to even the uncriti-

Canadian Legion Attacks
'Sheaf Attitude To War
"Brats and Squirts of Boys Writing Lies bi the Press"
SASKATOON-(By Wire)-A controversy still wages throughout Saskatchewan over the policy of the
"Sheaf", student paper of the University, which has embarked on a
program against war and militarism.
First press publicity for the student
publication came when the Canadian
Legion, Saskatoon Branch, protested
to the Hon. T. C. Davis, Attorney-
General of Saskatchewan, and Dr.
Walter C. Murray, president of the
University, because of a now famous
article of "The Staff Observer," which
appeared in the Thanksgiving number
of the "Sheaf."
The article, of slashing and Ironic
nature is said to have been seditous
according to a press report of a meeting of the'*Canadian Legion in which
the answers of the Attorney-General
and the University President were
read.
Mr. Davis declared that he was surprised,   and    was   Investigating   the,
matter. Dr. Murray advised that
things be left for the students of the
University to decide and stated that
Interference from outside was rarely
the best method of securing results.
Speaking in Regina on the matter
of student opposition to war, Briga-
died-General J. F. L. Embury, Justice, made a heated attack on the
"brats and squirts of boys" who were
"writing lies in the press."
Replying to the attack of the Canadian Legion, Alex Tooth, student
editor, declared that in attempting to
have opinions and Ideas suppressed
the ex-servicemen were seeking to
defeat the very freedom of thought
and speech for which they fought in
the Great War. The United Farmers
of Canada and the C.C.Y.M. have issued statements to the press defending the Sheaf and protesting efforts
to suppress freedom of speech. The
debate continues.
Seniors Are A
Moronic Crowd
States Totem
In tha words of Mr. Howard Scott,
chief of Technocracy Inc., the students of this University are a comfortable conglomeration of nondescript spineless morons, and the staff
of the Totem has very good reason
to agrje. Whether the following people are ashamed of their names or
their faces or both, we don't know,
or care, but the fact remains that
the Totem must be published, and in
order to accomplish this, the staff
must have a picture to put beside
each one of these names. Appointments must be made with Artona
Studios, Sey. 5737, by tomorrow at the
latest.
The faithful few who have had
their pictures taken will please return proofs to Artona Studios, marking the one which they prefer.

Memorial For
Anniversary
The Board of Governors on Wednesday night authorized the appointment of two physical instructors,
stated President L. S. Klinck in an
interview, yesterday. Of these, one
is to be a man, the other a woman.
The President stated that the functions and responsibilities of these instructors had not yet been worked
out, the matter being in the hands oi
a Senate Committee.
Whether or not these instructors
will be athletic directors remains to
be seen. The appointments will be
made before Jan. 1, so that the new
officers may take up their duties in
the spring term.
ANNIVERSARY PLANS
Plans for celebrating the twenty-
first anniversary of the founding of
the university are under way. The
main features are embodied in a report submitted by a Senate Committee under Mr. Sherwood Lett.
A memorial is to be established in
commemoration of the twenty-first
anniversary, funds for which will be
raised by an appeal to graduates and
friends of the university. Its nature
will be determined by a committee
appointed by the President.
The Alumni Association and the
Alma Mater Society, were requested
to plan a Homecoming Day during
Graduate Week.
Arrangements  for   the   publication
of  an  essay  on  the  history  of  the
university   since   its   inception   are
going forward.
FINANCES
ln connection with the ceremonies
the President was empowered by the
board to appoint such committees as
he thought advisable to carry on the
arrangements.
A detailed list of estimates was
submitted by the President, and after
consideration of this, he was instructed to submit a summation by
faculties and departments. An endeavor is being made to arrange an
appointment with the Hon. G. M.
Weir, Minister of Education, to discuss the requirements of the university for the coming fiscal year.

PUB HAS MASCOT
Last Monday there walked Into the Pub office, a poor dejected looking animal. At first,
we thought It was a sdenceman,
then an animal lover Informed
us It was a pure blooded terrier,
steed by Blue Ribbon the second
from Dame Rlbbel, probably
two of the most famous dogs of
Canada, the aire having won
twenty-four consecutive first
prizes.  |
Princess Is the name we have
bestowed upon her, a lesser
name would scarcely indicate
her high breeding. However,
Xmas holidays will soon be
here and some one will be
asked to care for Princess over
the holidays. All those interested will please call at the pub
office, bringing references as to
their character.
Seniors Plan
Class Party
For seniors, Varsity clays will soon
be over, Many of them wonder about
the future. And so the senior class
executive has arranged to have Prof.
Jerome, who knows all about past,
present and future, at the class party.
This is to be in the Georgian Club,
on Thursday, Nov. 28.
Another feature of the dance will
be "Lucky Sjpot" dances. During certain dances, a spotlight will suddenly
be thrown on the floor, and the
lucky, or embarassed couple who find
themselves in the light will receive a
prize.
In the meantime, fees are payable
at the foot of the Caf stairs. For the
first term these are one dollar. The
executive says that members will pay
them anyway, so that it will be to
their advantage to pay them in time
to attend the class party.
When paying fees please state
whether or not you wish to be in the
class draw. Results of the draw will
be posted by Tuesday. Outsiders may
come at $2.00 a couple. This will also
be the price for a senior bringing
someone not in the class.
DISEASE WARNING
A student attended a class ln
Economics yesterday who was
a scarlet fever contact. Unfortunately no report reached the
Health Office till after the stu-
dent had been to the class. It Is
the duty of all students In this
class, ln their own self interests,
to repast to the University
Health Service at once. Page Two

CIVILIZATION OR TECHNOCRACY?
Howard Scott, who pretended to tell us
about Technocracy on Tuesday, really succeeded in doing but one useful thing — he
started the students thinking about more important matters than pep meets and class parties. Representatives of Fascism, Communism,
Democracy and Socialism have come, said their
bit, and gone without making much of an impression on their audiences.
But Mr. Scott was clever, he whipped the
audience into a fury by attacking standards
that we have grown to regard as permanent.
Not that we agree with what he said, or his
method of saying it, for it is not necessary to
use cheap profanity to make an impressive
speech, but we must admit that he didn't take
long to get the full attention of his listeners.
If Technocracy is the theory that Mr. Scott
was talking about on Tuesday, it is best that
we stay close to our present system, faults
and all. Technocrats say that Democracy has
a "moronic quality of talking back", and that
a machine system would eliminate that. Well,
Democracy took several centuries to develop
the right of talking back and there's no chance
that we're going to let that right go to any
Technocrat.
On the whole, we disagree with the Technocrats in- all but one respect. There is no
doubt that machines are gradually displacing
thousands of working men. What these displaced workers will do is the coming social
problem. Shorte/ working hours, fuller use
of leisure time, and more equitable wages will
be needed. Technocracy promises these, but
they threaten to eliminate the human element,
to run th people in the same manner that they
run their machines, and that is where Technocracy will fail, for, even though human feelings are weak and changeable, we don't want
to lose them. As long as the world is governed by men, we will have civilization, when
machines take over we will have Technocracy;
they are not the same, and while we still have
a choice in the matter, we should set our minds
on preserving civilization.
PHYSICAL INSTRUCTOR
tV
At last the Board of Governors has taken
action on the state of athletics as found on this
campus. In company with the great majority of
students we are indeed gratified that the board
has seen fit to approve the appointment of
two physical instructors. We have campaigned
for some time for the establishment of some
such central supervision in the field of sport.
It has been a fairly wide feeling that participation in sport is not nearly general enough
among U.B.C. students. With the coming of an
organized program of intra-mural sport and
now the appointment of two physical instructors it is our earnest hope that the students will
take a greater part in athletics.

I have appointed my self to a new office. I
haven't a title yet but my self-imposed duty
involves sneering at the movie moguls who regard their audiences as standard twelve-year-
olds in mentality. If twelve-year-olds were
easily offended they've got grounds right now
for offense. Engage the average twelve-year-
old in converse, do some enquiring around and
you'll probably find that the movie moguls
can't count past nine.
It must be Hayes-fever that I've got.
A Paramount    news-reel was    withdrawn
a short time ago, after running for two days,
because the reputed twelve-year-old audience
got a kick out of it.
It was a shot of the Toronto family who
have produced the largest number of children
in the past five years in the notorious Stork
Derby.
The proud papa looked out of the picture
in the fugitive way that nervous news-reel subjects do, and said to the audience:
"I'm a street car conductor and I do most of
my work at night."
Audiences were terrificly amused, so the
reel was withdrawn.
Here are some of the things the Hayes office balks at:
No one in a picture over Jhe age of eighteen months is permitted to drink out of a bottle in full view of the audience unless it has a
direct bearing on the plot.
The soul-satiating gesture of placing the
tongue between the lips and exhaling moistly
and audibly is forbidden. So the razzberry crop
joins the not-raising-pigs industry
You can't say skirt, nance, goose, or louse,
from the silver screen unless in Mr. Webster's
sense. And you can't say punk, lousy, joint or
in your hat, no matter what Mr. Webster says.
I have found much personal delight recently in the list of names which combine to produce the gigantic, heart-throbbing efforts
which jerk the tears of the great American
public.
For instance, the name of the man who designed the costumes for "The Dark Angel" was
Omar Kiam, and it's spelt just like that too.
Probably the family motto now runs:
"Here with a yard of chiffon beneath the
bough,
A paper of pins, a piece of ribbon and thou,
And we will shape the fashions of next
year
With my brains and your background,
Jean Harlow.
The verse admittedly is lousy or punk, and
nuts to you Mr. Censor.
I anticipate a vaudeville team in the rosy
millenium of the future, whose professional
name is Moe and Les Hammed.
USELESS INFORMATION
Here is the most magnificent piece of fodder that this department has come across for
some time. It is contributed by a member of
the Classics Department of your university.
Have you noticed the historical painting
which adorns the entrance-hall of the Library
on the left hand side as you enter? It is entitled "Governor James Douglas Building Victoria."
In it there is a man with two left arms,
and he is on the right side of the picture doing something obscure with what might be a
crowbar. Imagine the ball game he'd play.
Maybe that's what's the matter with Victoria.
WELL DONE THESPIANS
The Players' Club are to be congratulated
on the high standard of their Christmas plays
this year. We always look forward to an evening of entertainment at the plays but this year
we were pleased more than usual.
Especially do we commend the efforts of the
Club in their presentation of scenes from
Shakespeare. Such a feat is a difficult one indeed to perform successfully. If the players
do not even to a small degree succeed in staging Shakespeare successfully, the performance
may easily become uninteresting and in some
cases farcical. However, we feel the satisfaction
of a Shakespearian scene well done is well
worth the effort required.

Hobden Addresses
Philosophy Club
Rev. J. D. Hobden, of the John
Howard Society, addressed the club
on the Borstal System, characterizing
it as "England's supreme effoft to
save the underprivileged and delinquent youth." Tracing the growth of
the idea from pre-war times to its
present status under the able leadership of Mr. Alexander Patterson, Mr.
Hobden stressed the fact that in the
personnel of the system was its greatest strength. University men and
women hold the key positions in the
Borstal Institutes and the centralization of forces under the Home Office makes the system remarkably
efficient. The term of training is for
two to three years in one of the
seven centres, suited to the temper -
ment of the delinquent and after discharge, the Borstal Association keeps
in touch with the boys and girls for
two years. "There is no stigma attached to the Borstal youth," said Mr.
Hobden, "and of the number who
have been through the schools, three
out of every four make good."
Howard Scott
Rouses Students

all for the only other possible system,
Technocracy.
UNEMPLOYMENT
"We have figured that, in a decade,
the unemployment on this continent
will be upwards of 38 million," he
continued," and what are the chances
of the preservation of your intellectual standards against a disgruntled
army of that size?"
"The total number of Jobs In the
world is dropping swiftly, and there
are few new jobs being created. This
has had the effect of reducing the
marriage rate. When you graduate
you won't earn enough to support Illicit relations, let alone marriage."
Mr. Scott spent a good deal of time
on familiar ground for his audience,
by explaining the workings of many
new machines which are displacing
hundreds of men in various industries, Although he wanted us to be
shocked, the result wasn't very gratifying so he switched back to a topic
that he knew would breed sure fire
hate.
WORK VERY DISTURBING
"Thousands of men are being thrown
out of work by technological improvements. Why not? Human beings
still have the old concept that work
is good for the soul. On the contrary
work is very disturbing and is nearly  eliminated  under Technocracy."
Mr. Scott again digressed for a few
moments to drag in U. S. politics.
"Down in the States," he said, "we
solved the problem of surplus wheat
production. Jim Farley went up and
fixed it with God so we could have
a drought, you ought to get him up
here in Canada to help you,"
Back on the path again, Scott let
loose a few "damns" and then shouted
that, "the people of today are Infected
with the lousiest disease that was ever
in a social system, Intellectual liberalism."
FORCE WILL BE USED
And then he began to get tough.
"If you don't get rid of this intellectual liberalism you'll find your decision made by a metallic organism
affixed to the business end of a 30
calibre."
In other words, the Technological
Revolution will not be by any means
gentle.
On the whole, the audience didn't
like Mr. Scott, which was exactly
what he desired. "I have to get under your skin," he said, "before you'll
really listen to me," and proceeded
to say that, "cultural traditions would 1
soon be as useless as the harld tools r
of yesterday." I
The only thing the speaker didn't
really say much about was Technocracy. But he did give us an excellent exposition of the advance of the
machine age, and the inevitable
change of social system that must
come. Whether or not that new system will be Technocracy we can decide when someone tells us what It is.

From the University of British Columbia comes John R. Gould, who
bears the reputation of not only being
an excellent debater, but of being one

THE COLOR
QUESTION
The insistent claim of many in the
United States is that the Negro can
never fit himself into American civilization, This claim and often pure
prejudice seems to be made the excuse for never giving the Negro a
chance.
It appears that Donald Murray, a
young and ambitious Negro graduate
of Amherst University attempted to
register in the University of Maryland Law School, a tax-supported institution to whose up-keep citizens
of Maryland contribute. His registration was refused because of his
color. The matter was taken to court,
and Murray received a decision in his
favor, the acting president of the college appealing the decision to the
Attorney General. Despite all the attempts to have him ousted, Donald
Murray is now a student at the university, and doing well.
Such reports as this make one wonder if the people of the Southern
States are attempting to solve the
color problem, or If they have decided long ago that it cannot be
solved and settled down to a program
of  social  ostracism.

Because they are love-sick, ambitious, lazy or in danger of marrying,
Washington students come to college.
Students picked at random confessed to a variety of motives for

One student admitted that his parents sent him to the University because they were afraid he would get
married if he had nothing else to do.
Many co-eds—with giggles and pseudo-blushes, revealed that they are attending the University in hopes of

cal audience of students, who, despite
boredom, sat through half-an-hour of
unsuccessful acting.
Thirteen members of the Club were
included in the over-large, unfortunate cast,—and none deserves especial mention. Sam Roddan as Mr. Pick-
ard, Hazel Wright as Mrs. Harris and
Philip Griffin as her husband were
perhaps slightly above the average in
acting ability, while Mary Heyer as
Emily Pipe received considerable
good-natured applause.
Other members of the cast were
Dudley Darling as Charlie King, Adelia Thurber as Mrs. Pipe, Jean Meredith as Mrs, Manley, Helen Wood as
Keity, Alan Walsh as Walter Wright,
Bob Thomson as Alfred Wright, and
Ellen Boving as Mrs. Herberts.
Three scenes from 'Hamlet' directed
by Prof. Ira Dilworth, followed the
opening farce. While the selections
must be considered far too difficult
for the limited talents of members
of the Players' Club, the hindrance of
a generally unappreciative audience
acted as a great drawback to the successful presentation of the scenes.
Doubtless they will be better produced and more appreciated before the
mature audience of consistent playgoers this evening.
Star of the short selections was Arthur Sager as the ghost of Hamlet's
father. Careful lighting,—which nevertheless was not careful enough to
remove the "ghost's" shadow from the
backdrop,— and a clever setting added much to the presentation.
Hamlet himself, played by H. D.
Cameron, was if anything slightly too
immature and vacillating to be absolutely effective. Lack of proper direction in the inclusion of the line:
"Something is rotten in the State of
Denmark" ended Scene II on a humorous note, spoiling its effectiveness.
However, without doubt the "Scenes
from Hamlet" will prove very accept- j
able this evening and tomorrow. Al-
though not wholly appreciated Thurs- '
day, the acting in this section of the
programme was superior to any other
in the lengthy evening.
Bob King as the King and Beth Gil-
landers as the Queen were more acceptable, and the trio of Hamlet's
friends, played by Ludlow Beamish,
Marino Fraresso and Leslie Allen, although their costumes were so strikingly crimson that they were greeted
with joyful laughter, turned in a satisfactory performance. Diana Drabble
as Ophelia, Graham Darling as Laertes and Ben Sivertz as Polonious, completed the cast.
"The Mask" a play written by H. M.
Harwood and F. Tennyson Jesse, followed the Shakespearian selections.
Directed by Guy Glover of the Vancouver Little Theatre, it failed to satisfy the student audience due to its
excessive melodramatic qualities. John
Brynelsen as James Glasson was the
most outstanding player in the short
one-act presentation. Lois Still as his
wife, Vashti, was satisfactory, but the
characterization of Willie Strlck by
Frank Stevens was over-acted, implausible and utterly unconvincing.
"Villa for Sale", by Sacha Guitry,
was directed by Prof. Walter H. Gage,
and proved by fare the most acceptable part of the pogramme. The audience, admittedly in search of comedy
entered into the spirit of the play
with gusto and assisted the actors
with its consistent applause.
Star of the performance was Jim
Beverldge whose sarcastic humour was
cleverly handled and carefully limited to the correct lines, Betty Moscovltch as Mrs. Al. Smith, although she
over-emphasized the "Mae Westian"
possibilities of her part, accounted for
numerous bursts of applause.
Juliette, played by Morva Longfellow, and the maid, portrayed by
Anna Cantwell, were satisfactorily, although forcedly presented. Josephine
Kennedy played the part of Jeanne,
wife of Gaston.—J. D.

Senior B's Will Play Fonts
After losing a hard-fought battle
to the Adanacs on Wednesday, and
watching on that same eventful night,
a double overtime tilt between the
All-star Province team, and the third-
place Vacs, the U.B.C. Thunderbird
Basketballers are confident they will
come into their own this Saturday
night when they meet Chuck Jones'
Newsies.
One of the main reasons for this
confidence is the fact that our Hoopers will be entertaining the league-
leaden in the Campus gymnasium,
and will have all the advantages of
the home floor. An added advantage will be the large number ot
etudent supporters who will be out
cheering for dear old Anna Mater.
Although a team has plenty of stars
and excellent coaching, it can get
nowhere if it hasn't got that certain
something that makes a real basketball team—that something is "team-
spirit." Our Senior A's have shown
right from the start of this season
that they've got "It"-plus!     «
"Doc" Montgomery, who has been
consistently and effectively building
up a smooth-passing and fast-breaking team, is "sho enuff" pleased with
the progress his charges are making.
In fact, the last four or five days
have seen a complete change in the
offensive tactics of our Hoopers, and
the "Doc" is at present working out
effective scoring plays.
So—all and withal, who knows but
the highly-touted Province quintette
will suffer its first defeat of the current season, at the hands of the Student Hoopers. This gala performance
will get away at 9:00 p.m.
In the prelim, at 8:00, Varsity's Senior B's will also tangle with league-
leaders, this time with Forsts*, the
wonder team of the Community
League. Up to the present, the Senior B's have a single victory to their
credit, with 3 defeats, but after their
good showing against the second-
place team, Beresfords, they are expected to give Forsts plenty of
trouble. —TURNER

The future of American Football
will be investigated by a committee
of five headed by Dr. Shrum and
members Boe, Twiss, Paradis and McHugh.
The Committee will investigate student, player and faculty opinion on
the matter and will make a report
in the early Spring. If It It found
that the American game Is not favored on thla campus an attempt will
be made to find another league
playing the Canadian brand of football which the team could enter.
The high school league will be considered if the schedule can be shortened so as to fit in with the University examination timetable . . .
There will be another meeting of
the Football club, immediately after
the opening of the spring term, to
consider the junior team and the continuing  in  the junior  league.    This
league has finished for 1935 but the
2nd half of the schedule will open
again as soon as weather conditions
warrant. Th-e University had a team
in tha league and did fairly well but
was seriously handicapped by lack of
players due to the playing of the
American Football games on the same
days. But as the American game will
not be played any more until next
fall the junior team will be at full
strength for the second half of the
schedule. -CRAWLEY,

Clever For Varsity
While the Vancouver Province basketball artists were consolidating
their position at the top of the Intercity Basketball League in New Westminster Wednesday night our own
Thunderbirds were making their position at the other end of the line almost as safe. They went down before
a smart fast-passing Adanac attack
by a 43-31 score.
Wally Mayers, who was granted
permission to play for the Yellow-
jackets by the Students' Council not
so long Bgo returned to the form
which had him rated as one of the
best in Canada to lead his mates
with seventeen points. He was a danger every time he touched the ball,
and if he didn't sink the leather or
miss by a fraction, he rifled passes
for some other man to convert.
Wally was absolutely unstoppable
in the first half, and although the
College Boys played good basketball
they could find no way to hold him.
The rest of the Adanacs kept up their
end well and at the half the count
was 2843.
George Pringle scored two beauties
in this period, but afterwards remained pretty well on the defensive.
Varsity outscored their more seasoned opposition in the second and
final half of the game 18-13 but could
not climb anywhere near the count
piled up against them and finished
twelve points down. Alex. Lucas
showed some flashes ot real class to
register ten markers all in the twenty
minutes. Three of these baskets came
on spectacular long heaves, and two
were from rebounds.
Here are the scores:
Adanacs — Mayers 17, Matthison 8,
Matheson 6, Ross 4, Fraser, Meehan,
Douglas 2, Smith 2, Wright 4. Total-
43.

INTRA-MURAL SPORT
Sophs and Juniors Split Games
The point standing is now:
The Intra-Mural Games are coming* teams,
along in great shape. Last Tuesday
the Sophs proved their superiority
over the Juniors in a fast and furious
game of Rugby but Junior hoopers
retaliated by severely trouncing a
Soph hoop squad in the gym. The
Grass Hockey game failed miserably
as neither the Seniors or the Frosh
had a full team no they joined in
with their corresponding teams on the
Soccer field. In this game the Seniors defeated the Frosh badly. These
three games were speedy and exciting
and showed keen competitive spirit
on the part of all the participants.
Now that the rivalry is getting really
"hot" the Intra-mural Dictipators expect to see a goodly number of spectators out today  to  boost their own
Frosh   250
Soph   550
Juniors    850
Seniors        350
The  folowing  teams  may  be seen
in action today at noon:
Basketball    Frosh  vs. Juniors
Rugby  Frosh vs. Juniors
Hockey    Sophs,  vs.  Seniors
Soccer   Sophs, vs. Seniors
Harvey Carruthers, Intra-mural

teams have become pretty well organized and display good team work
in the field, and therefore the noon
hour games are well worth seeing.

Gets Chance To Row
The Rowing Club discussed the
coming activities of the club at a
meeting on Tuesday last. Tom Brown
gave a chalk talk on rowing and explained some of the difficulties which
confront the members in the formation of a first class rowing club.
"Because of the poor condition of
equipment Varsity rowers are at a
decided handicap," such was the essence of the coach's talk. "We have
certainly got the material and enthusiasm to make our own club, but
with such poor equipment we cannot
function properly. In the Christmas
holidays we want all of you to come
down and work on the boats.
"We plan to race Washington and
Oregon in the spring. To choose the
men who will represent Varsity we
will run trial eights in our practices.
Every man will have a chance, as the
eight will be chosen on individual
merits. In the spring we will go in
for more intensive training in preparations for these competitions."

SOCCERMEN
READY FOR
SECOND WIN
Will Meet Vikings at Cambie
The senior soccer squad is going to
try to show that they are not like the
English Rugby Club, by winning two
games in a row without changing
their line-up. The wisdom of this
policy will again be tested on Saturday, when Varsity meets Vikings in
a V. and D. league game, we hope it
will be attended with more success,
since the soccermen are not proud of
their position at the top of the league,
being in fifth place at present. The
game will begin at 2:30 on the Cambie
street grounds.
The boys are out to break the record they made lasts week (scoring one goal, In the first minute of
play) by putting In at least two
counters In the first minute. If Okuda keeps on as he has been for the
last couple of weeks, this should not
be so difficult as It sounds, helped
as he will be by the Improved brand
of football the team has been showing the last couple of games.
. Last week's line-up was as follows:
goal, Greenwood; backs, Croll, Sutherland; halves, Quale, Wolfe, Sweetnam; forwards, Irish, Sager, Thurber,
MacBurney, Okuda; subs, Chester,
Godard.
A much strengthened Junior squad
will  also  play  on  Saturday.    They
are to play the Garrison boys on the
Campus.   The kick-off will be at 1:30.

Challengers
To Clash With Champs
On Douglas Park tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 the "Champs" wil go

Who are the "Champs!" Why they
arc thc one outstanding championship team Varsity has produced this
year, the team that has turned out
Saturday after Saturday to win game
after game with only manager Sid
Walker and supporter Lillian Boyd
to encourage them—the Second Division English Rugby Fifteen.
A more reasonable question is "Who
are tho 'Challengers'?" The "Challengers" aiv the ex-Marpole team
that played first division rugby last
year, a team that should give Varsity some really stiff opposition, so an
exciting game is assured.
Douglas Park is handy, the admission is free, and the game will be
good, so come and watch Varsity win.

Rowing Club ln the last game. To
quote: "Somebody slapped me with
a foot." The scrum gap left by hia
absence will be filled by Irish Colthurst, second division captain and
runner of note. Smith again performs at five-eights ln place of Robson, whose leg Infection has not yet
cleared up.
With Varsity in second place behind All-Blacks and Rowing Club
who .ire tied for tops, there is not
likely to be any change in the ranking over the week-end. The three
strongest teams are matched with the
definitely weaker members of the
league, Rowing Club meeting Occasion
als; All-Blacks tangling with Ex-Britannia. A win for all three leading
teams seems probable, although the
unpredictable Occasionals may turn
in a surprise, and a strengthened Ex-
Magee squad, who have acquired
some talent from Canadian circles according to Dame Rumor, will make
Varsity work for a win.
The team: Bird, Leggatt, Mercer,
Roberts, Wilson, Smith, Carey, Harrison, Mitchell, Pyle, Colthurst, Senck-
ler,  Porter,   Griffin,  Maguire.
