SASKATCHEWAN DEBATES
FOR McGOUN CUP TONIGHT
Parrott and Munro To
Represent Prairies
Tonight the annual McGoun Cup Series swings into
action when Saskatoon will debate U.B.C. in Vancouver, in
the university auditorium at 8.15 p.m.
'An Anglo-American Alliance Is a better guarantee
to world peace than the collective security of the League
of Nations" Is the contention which U.B.C. debaters
Harold Rome and Alex Macdonald will uphold. This resolution will be debated slmulatenously in three other
provinces.
SURPLUS USED
TO REPLACE
RUGBY STRIP
A bitter argument raged at Students' Council Monday evening
when Canadian Rugby Club strip
was being discussed. Lyall Vine
and John Bird, in opposition to
Malcolm Brown and Bob Smith, insisted that membera of the club
could not be charged personally for
$16fi worth of "missing" strip.
The Vine-Bird proposal, whieh
finally  paaaed the meeting, wae
to   take   the   Canadian   Rugby
budget balance of thia year, aome
$93, and next year to keep the
club'a budget down to $273, ualng
the difference between that figure
and the preaent budget, $850, to
pay for the reat of the atrip coat.
Brown and Smith declared, that
while members of the club probably
did not purposely lose their strip,
the loss waa due to negligence and
should be payed for in part by fines
assessed on the players responsible.
NO USE
A forty-minute flght over the
question flared up as the major dls-
sention among members of the
present council. It was held by
some that restraint of next year's
budget was not only impractical,
but outside the powers of the present Council. A ruling of last year's
Jay Gould council was referred to
as a precedent, and the move judged
legal.
"We might as well take it as
a dead loss," commented Smith in
stating that the restriction of the
1938-39 Canadian Rugby budget
would gain the A.M.S. little.
Ticket   Scalping
Against  Rules
Scalping — sana tomahawks —
caused prices to soar yesterday as
pseudo-financiers cashed in on the
Invasion ticket shortage.
Ticketless   students   were   being  forced  to dig  deep  for  the
privilege of attending Saturday's
jaunt,  and envied   the   business
acumen of their more ambitious
fellows.
The ticket committee, under Mr.
Horn,   vainly   tore   its   hair  in   an
effort to combat the complications
so   unexpectedly  forced   on   its   already   stooped   shoulders  by   amateur  ticket-brokers.
SCALPERS  PENALIZED
Ticket-scalpers are referred to
Art. XI of the constitution which
says, in part:
"A member of the Society . . .
shall not sell a ticket . . . for a price
higher   than   that   set   for   such   a
ticket by the committee in charge
»»
Students are warned that continued attempts to ignore this
ruling will be penalized.
Club Awards Subject
Of Council Discussion
"Awards in anything are not desirable," commented Jean Meredith at council Monday evening
during a discussion of the proposed
L.S.E.  awards system.
Recalling Jean's bitter experience
with the new women's athletics
awards set-up, fellow councillors
wore inclined to sympathize with
her. However, they noted, organization of credit awards In L.S.E.
would be a desirable move—if cooperation of the L.S.E. clubs can
be  obtained.
POWERFUL TEAM
Saskatoon's Invading team is a
powerful one, composed of Geoffrey
Parott and Craig Munroe.
Parrott came
to Emmanuel
College In 1932
from England.

part   in   Inter-
     faculty    debet-
Parrott ing.
In 1934, Parrott debated against
the touring team from Bate's College, Maine, and ln 1936 he opposed
the Eastern Canadian team touring Western Canada. The same
year, hex participated ln a debate
against the City of Saskatoon, and
ln 1937, against a Kinsman Club
team  from  Lloydminster.

Bombing Attempt
Fails As Varsity
Graduate Drowns
Rolf  Forsyth   Loses
Life In Alleged
Seettle Crime
Rolf Forsyth, who graduated In
Agriculture at U.B.C. ln 1931, was
drowned Thursday In Seattle harbor during an unsuccessful attempt
to bomb the Japanese freighter
"Hlye Maru," according to word
received by the Ubyssey last night.
At 8.00 o'clock last evening identification was not yet positive, but
all available Information Indicated
that the body was that ot the Vancouver man.
Another Vancouver man, arrested
In connection with the alleged
bombing attempt, stated that Forsyth had hired him to assist in
destroying the ship "for an Oriental
government. One thousand dollars
was the price offered by Forsyth,
according  to  the  man  ln  custody.
The suspect asserted to Seattle
police that he and Forsyth had
made a previous attempt when the
Japanese ship was loading ln Vancouver last week, and that on its
failure the two of them had followed It to Seattle via Tacoma to
continue their efforts.
No actual bomb has yet been discovered, but frantic searches were
being conducted late last evening
on board the vessel and on and under the nearby wharves in an effort
to locate the alleged Infernal machine.
After graduation Mr. Forsyth was
an assistant In the Department of
Animal Husbandry at the university for a year, during which time
he Interested himself ln the Japanese methods of chick-sexing,
which were being introduced Into
British Columbia at that time. He
later travelled across Canada lecturing on the latest developments
ln this line of work, proceeding
eventually  to   Europe.
While on the Continent he founded the British Chlck-sexing Institute, and assisted ln the formation
of several similar bodies in the
Netherlands and neighboring continental countries.
On hlB return from abroad he
was associated with the Towers, a
co-educational private school ln
New Westminster, formerly known
as Columbian College. This venture was unsuccessful financially,
and since its demise, little is
known ot Mr. Forsyth, except that
he was directing traffic for a time
at the Vancouver Exhibition last
summer.

Political Club Has
Difficulty With
Unruly   Factions
Fascists Split Over
Party Leader
Organized Into six party factions, U.B.C.'s Political Discussion Club swung into action Wednesday by appointing
section chairmen and setting the flrst meeting for Thursda;.
Determined to see the free-for-all discussion of political
problems, the club has as its major divisions: Conservative,
Liberal, Independent, Socialist, Communist and Imperialist.
FASCIST DIFFICULTY
The Imperialists, flrst titled Fascists, had their first taste ot student political methods Wednesday
afternoon. Paul Sykes had been
elected chairman of the section at
the noon meeting, but his selection
did not conform to the wishes of a
group with the then-Fascist division, who Informed Sykes to resign at once.
He did so, and was succeeded by
Norman DePoe, who changed the
name ot the group to Imperialists.
Other   section   leadera   elected
Wednesday were:   Miss 0. True-
well,    Conssrvatlve;    Art    Dawe,
Liberal;    Rodney   Bsavan,    Independent;  Harold Rome, Socialist,
and Tom  McCallum, Communist.
The   club  executive  has  already
reported trouble in restraining sections   from   holding   meetings   on
tnelr   own—which   ls   against   the
principle of the club—formed to encourage all-party discussion of political  matters.
CENTRALIZATION
According to present reports, difficulty will be had ln keeping sections from proceeding on their own
to stage meetings and slide out
from under the control of the central  executive.
At regular meetings the club will
follow parliamentary procedure In
discussing questions, under the eye
of Speaker Morris Belkin. Votes
will be taken at the end of the
meetings.
SPEAKERS   INVITED
Leaders in provincial and federal political parties will be invited
to address the Political Discussion
Club. Among those who will be
asked to speak wll be Hon. Dr. G.
M. Weir, B. C. minister of education.
The club will operate much the
same as the Parliamentary Forum, with, to some extent, the
same membership. Refusal of the
Forum to amalgamate with the
olub waa a feature of the organisation activity, according te club
membera.
Freshmen    Buy
More  Totems
Freshmen will have their pictures in the Totem this year.
This curt announcement made recently by Totem editor David Crawley was the signal for a storm of
controversy over the proposal.
Main question asked was why are
the juniors not to be included as
last year?
In an interview with the Ubyssey Thursday Crawley declared
that last yssr freshmen bought
200 Totems, although their pictures were not In ths book, and
Juniors, all of them In the Totem, purchased only 120 annuals.
"It is more reasonable," asserted
Crawley, "to ask students to buy a
Totem in their freshman and senior
years, rather than two years in succession. All told, from the financial aspect, our policy this year will
help keep the A.M.S. out of the
red."
MUST   PAY
The Totem is a major financial
undertaking, and must be made to
pay, states Crawley. With the low
price of $2.50 still being charged
this year, it is essential that a large
volume of sales  be  made.
Planning for a Totem to follow
along  the  lines  of last year's  sue-
Dr. Singh Outlines
India's Attitude
Toward   Britain
Overbearing English
Officials Resented
By Natives
Lloyd George's failure to keep his
promises ot giving India a greater
measure o» independence after the
World War ls the cause of much
bad feling, Bald Dr. Singh on Thursday noon when he spoke on the political situation in India.   .
Dr. Singh attended three American universities. His outlook is
one of wide internationalism, and
ls not bounded by racial prejudice.
He spoke of India's wrongs with
complete lack of bitterness but
from the point of view of a disinterested observer suggesting remedies.
The two original grievances of
the   Indian   National   Conference
were, he ssld, Brltain'a failure to
supply   educational   facllltlea  for
the   Indian   population,   and   the
overbearing attitude of British of-
flolals.
The speaker stated that although
India's  entry  Into the  World  War
was not motivated solely by desire
for gain, Lloyd George's failure to
keep hts promise was the cause of
much bad feeling.
OFFICIALS  RESENTED
Dr. Singh explained India's objection to the new constitution
which is now under discussion. He
said that a great deal of trouble
Is due to the omission of the phrase
"dominion status," and to the introduction ot separate electorates
for the different religious sects, an
innovation which works against
the growing unity of the separate
groups.
Another cause of the unrest is
the amount of control invested In
the hands of British representatives.
Any exouse that Britain  Is remaining  In  India beeause of the
Hindu-Moslem   problem  waa  discounted   by   Dr.   Singh,   who   remarked that the two faotlone had
lived   as   neighbors  without   any
serious    altercation   for   aeveral
centuries   before  the  appearance
of the   English   in   India.
The speaker said that a change
in the new constitution is essential,
otherwise methods other than passive  resistance   may  be  employed,
and the result may be tragedy.
GHANDI   POPULAR
Dr. Singh, in answer to a question, said that Ghandi's personal
popularity is responsible for a
large percentage of his following,
especially among  the uneducated.
He also mentioned that we are
not inclined to give due credit to
the Mahatma for the fact that his
policy of passive resistance has
saved thousands of lives—British
as  well  as  native.
The lecture was under the auspices of the N.F.C.U.S. and was
one of a series. Other lectures will
be announced later.

a new pace for this university, the
editor is faced with the necessity
of watching carefully the business

STUDENT PRODUCTIONS
From now on until the two major theatrical productions
on the campus have seen their final performances, nearly two
hundred students will be hard at work preparing and rehearsing "The Yeomen of the Guard' and "Playboy of the Western
World."
The tremendous amount of effort that is put into these
annual student productions is worthy of support by the rest
of the campus. Every student should become a word-of-
mouth advertiser for the play and the operetta, in order to
assure them the unqualified success they deserve.
A SIGN OF WEAKNESS
Refusal of Students' Council to assess in any way members of the Canadian Rugby Club responsible for $165 worth
of missing strip seems to point to a lack of backbone on the
part of council to proceed with action that it knows to be
desirable and necessary.
Although council members admitted that the missing
strip was lost through negligence of the players, and that a
certain amount of care might have prevented the big loss,
there was no decision to make the careless ones pay for their
actions.
Even a small fine, although it would in no way make up
for the loss, would have been an indication that council had
the courage of its convictions. Whether or not the Canadian
ruggers were guilty as charged is not the point—council
decided the guilt existed, and thereupon refused to take the
action naturally expected following such a decision.
We are in no way suggesting that Students' Council
should become hard and fascistic in its rulings regarding
campus affairs. The broad view of a problem is often the
wisest. The fact remains however, that once a stand is
taken, and a move made in any direction, council should follow through, rather than suddenly backwater in order to
avoid what might be slightly unpleasant.
THE VICTORIA INVASION
As the grey dawn breaks through the clouds in the eastern sky tomorow, 460 students will leave the C.P.R. docks
aboard the "Princess Norah," bound for Victoria in the revival of the traditional Victoria Invasion.
U.B.C. will send seven teams and a horde of supporters
across the waters to take part in a day-long festival of games
and athletic events. The unexpected support of the affair
surprised student officials, as all tickets were sold within a
few days after the campaign started.
The enthusiasm which has so far marked the arrangements for the invasion augurs well for the success of the
affair. With good weather promised and the assurance of a
fine reception in Victoria the stage is set for one of the most
outstanding events of the year.

From these premises roll the

recognition has been accorded -his

you should try Lynn Ward's new
novel, "Virtigo," which tells a complete story in wood cuts. There
aren't ten printed words in the entire two hundred pages, just pictures, and very good pictures, too.
The story is about three people,
a boy, a girl, and an "elderly gentleman," who is the vallain of the
piece, and looks remarkably like
John D. Rockefeller. It's a good,
stark bit of proletarian literature,
and even if you're not left wing at

Ward busy for two years.
CORRESPONDENCE
The Editor,
"Ubyssey":
Dear Sir:
This year at Christmas, exam
writers bounced under a new experiment; namely, that they were
obliged, almost Immediately after
closing of the lecture periods to sit
at exams restricted for the most
part to one hour. I wish to point
out some of the disadvantages of
this experiment.
As most students need a special
period, say a few days (not a weekend) in which to collect their notes
after the final lectures, they found
themselves hindered by the short
time allotted between the last day
of lectures and the flrst of the
exams.
On some days many students
were obliged to prepare, not only
for exams, but also for an annoying but necessary lecture.
On some students' timetables, 2,
or sometimes 8, very "tough"
courses follow immediately after
the other. To study for these is
a problem, and the result is a
wretched night and a worse day.
In such cases as the above, the
hurried changing of exam rooms
consequently brings a loss of 6 or
10 valuable minutes in the ridiculous 65.
As each student knows that the
questions are drawn from the work
of the whole term, he must study
just as hard as if he were preparing for a 3-hour exam; yet, he
later finds that he studied for an
exam which is not representative
of the term's work, and thus not
worthy of his labours. In other
words .because the subject is not
treated completely by the examiner, a great deal of the student's
preparation is wasted.
I hope these few remarks may be
brought to the attention of the
faculty.
Youra truly,
"Cognovl"

A C.U.P. Feature
Rushing through a tunnel of
blazing lights down Portage Avenue—a crisp coldness and slowly
falling snow — New Year's Eve in
Winnipeg. A gay town with a big
heart — far enough west to be
broadminded, yet near enough to
the east to be conservative.—Winnipeg is a city with the vigour of
the great outdoors and yet with
enough tradition to be staid on
occasion.
It is amazingly informal in dress
yet frowns upon trucking, or to cite
a concrete example we were told at
a New Year's party that "Unless
you gentlemen'can dance properly
you will have to leave," while all
around us couples were ushering in
the New Year in a manner truly
western.
One of the most vivid impressions was the trip out—a long train
—two engines some of the time-
car upon car of "tourists" going to
the Conferences—people cooking in
the little kitchens—typewriters—
English students trying to talk
French—French students talking
English—more typewriters — resolutions—discussions on religion,
birth control, morals, etcetera, etcetera—the plutocrata riding in the
1st class—college yells at every
station—trying to get to sleep when
the fellow above would insist on
spilling Scotch down the crack into
the lower—(not that we minded the
dampness but the smell was tantalising)—Anally Winnipeg itself.
There are some remarkable people in Winnipeg. The most remarkable, perhaps, is John Bracken, the
Premier, or as he is called, "Honest
John, the Father of the Reconfed-
e ration."
He is a great fellow—unassuming and apparently one of Canada's
few really honest politicians (and
hence a Statesman)—a man who
was called from hia professorial
chair in the Manitoba Agricultural
College to lead the Farmers party
after being in the Province for only
two yeara. People laughed—but he
has been in office for sixteen years
—and will probably atay there for
a long time yet. He aays that Manitoba has no axe to grind—is all
for reduction in the number of
governments in Canada and claims
that the people of the West are
citizens of Canada and not of any
particular province—a great man
who not only talks Canadian unity
but acts upon his beliefs—see his
brief to the Rowell Commission.
President Sidney Smith of the
University of Manitoba is another
leader. He is doing a remarkably
fine Job at the University.
Like so many other Canadian
Universities the U. ot Man. has
good teachers—but will it be able
to hold them in the face of fatter
stipends offered elsewhere to the
South? We hope so, and Sidney
Smith can hold them if anybody
can.

Drummond Speaks
On Economic Subject

The ammonal leoture In the
Spring Session ef the Vanoouver
Institute will be held In Room
100, the Arte Building, the University of British Columbia, on
Saturday evening at S.16. The

Drummond, M.A., M.Se., and the
eujeet, "The General Soonomlo
Effeeta ef the Depression."
Extension Department
Issues New Calendar
Of Interest to persons throughout the Province who are directly
interested in university functions,
is a brief Calendar published for
the purpose ot listing forthcoming
events of interest and to give information on university extension
work.
Persons receiving these Calendars are requested to lis£ special
topics in which they are interested,
so that the university may be of
the maximum help to them ln future Issues. The calendars are issued  by the extension department.
the Canadian Institute of International Relations is another man
who cannot be left out of a compendium of Winnipeg citizens—he
is very interested in the outlook
and activities of college people. He
followed the discussions at the National Conference with a great deal
of enthusiasm.
Perhaps the reason for the general broadminded outlook found in
Winnipeg is to be traced to the
Winnipeg Daily papers. The Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg
Tribune are second to none in Canada. The strong point in both being their editorials.
These papers are not afraid to
present the truth to their readers—
neither advertisers nor Governments seem to hamper them—and
perhaps that is why there is no
Governmental Control of the Press
in Winnipeg or in Manitoba--—the
people are educated enough to appreciate a "Free Press."
The men who are mainly responsible for the power house editorials
in Winnipeg are John Bird, of the
Tribune, and Oeorge Ferguson, of
the Free Press. Mr. Ferguson is
a big bluff man with a twinkle in
his eye and a ready pen.
He thinks the college journals
are doing a good job and says that
there must be a need for a Canadian University Press aa that very
question was raised aver twenty
years ago.
Mr. Bird—the Tribune man—is
putting the Tribune on the map. He
has more information at his fingertips concerning. Canada and its
minority problems than practically
any other newspaper man today.
No visit to Winnipeg would be
complete without a visit to the H.B.
Store and the Grain Exchange. The
H. B. C. is a store second to none
in Canada.
At the Grain Exchange apart
from the actual trading, which is
interesting enough, the Dominion
Government Laboratories for testing and grading the wheat are well
worth an hour or ao. The experimental work being carried on under
the aegis (or in some cases in spite
of) the Federal Government is truly remarkable.
The food at the Manitoba Club
rivals an Epicurean banquet.
All in all, Winnpieg is a fine
town—its people are hospitable and
unspoiled. They realise that Winnipeg is not the centre of the world,
which thought in any city is apt
to spoil the nicest citizenry.
The taxi drivers of Winnipeg deserve special mention. They, like
the taxi drivers in most towns, can
lead one to the local hot spots—
but the Winnipeg drivers have a
profound respect for traffic laws
and liquor laws, which brings us to
a subject near the heart of moat
college men. Liquor in Winnipeg
is not only hard—but hard to get.
After losing a dollar for a permit you find that you can buy 56
os. hard, a case of beer and a gallon of wine—what a combination!
The staff of any hotel will tell you
that thia Christmaa has been very
cheery, but very orderly—a great
Improvement over the old days.
There were three conferences at
Winnipeg over the holidays — the
N.F.C.U.S. biennial meeting—the
National Conference and the Canadian University Press Inaugural
meetings.
There are many opinions as to
the relative merits of each—but all
will agree that no matter what else
was accomplished it was a great
thing to get college studenta together — a great thing to exchange ideas — a heartening and
refreshing stimulus to realize that
somewhere in Canada existed a
people without an axe to grind and
who were, anxious to co-operate
and not merely talk co-operation.
Winnipeg—the Crossroads of the
Dominoin—is a great place.

This Victoria Invasion business
ls all right on, the surface, we suppose, but the thought ot what we'll
all be feeling like on Sunday at
about noon has definitely got us
worried. And with our experience
of going over on the night boat before a game, we are beginning to
think that little old sleepy Victoria
will be a suitable place to spend
the morning lt we can find a suitable hayrick to He down on.

The Ice Hockeymen, or the wiel-

more games and more Jaunts, and
more coaches than they have ever

is for them to win a few games,
which little formality will certain-"

TRACK
To our formidable track brigade,
this much-publicized encroachment
on the sleepy confines of the Capital City is merely the preface to the
annual spring activity of the Cinder-haunters. With February 8 set
as the date for the traditional Arts
'30 Road Race, and the Arts '20 Relay coming oft just a short eight
days later, training starts with a
vengeance as soon as the Invasion
ls a thing of the past. ... As a
further incentive to a great Track
season, there is a whispered rumour
stalking the campus to the effect
that a Four-man Relay team may
leave these parts to do battle at a

and the Canadian Championship baaketballera.
Rugby is the flrst to hit the high
spots, as the '38 edition of the Wonder team takes a crack at Victoria
Reps, red pants and all, in an important McKechnie Cup match.
IMPORTANT TILT
Already one down to Vancouver, the Blue and Gold have to
repeat their win over the Crimsons, or the dear old silverware
leaves the Library; but the Reps
are  weak,  and   Varsity,   full  of
flght, la heads-up, overall favorite
to come out on top of the heap.
During the rugger sessions, the
two grass hockey aggregations will
show against picked Island squads.
Both the men's and women's teams
are strong, and play a good brand
of hockey,  so that the games will
be worth-while to those rabid hockey fans who can stand missing the
thrills of a McKechnie  Cup rugby
scrap.
The splash events come later in
the afternoon, with seven men and
Ave women from the campus meet
ing all comers, more or less, from
across - the • Gulf - way. Archie
"Duck" Byers heads an all-star set
of water babies in this Crystal Gardens feature.
VARSITY AND DOMINOES
TO MEET
A final blast from the Varsity
guns heaves the basketeers into a
grand  struggle with the highly-
touted Dominoes, pets of Victoria
for years and years. The checker-
boarded  isolationists    have   been
going   to  town   on   their   opponents  with  boring  regularity   for
ao long that it's time they had a
little opposition.   Just   for   fun,
see?  and we've got the guys as
can do it.
The    McKechnie    team    includes
Johnny   Bird,   Strat  Leggatt,   Howie and Ted McPhee, Ernie Teagle,
Tod   Tremblay,   Dave   Carey   and
scrum-men    Robertson,    Vine,    Upward,   Campbell,   C.   McPhee,   Andrews, Stewart, and Robson. Nearly
every  man  a  byword  for  the  tops
ln rugby, a team to beat, and then
Bome.
Basketball includes Pat Flynn,
who was allowed back for this
game, Ted Pallas, "Tony" Lucas,
"Joe" Pringle, "Hooker" Wright,
Bud Matheson, "By" Straight,
Frank Turner and "Blng" Millar.
Captain Rann Matthison can't make
the trip, and leaves a big gap in
the line, but the game will be hot
and furious.
Two and a half bucks  worth!
We won't sell for a million!

VarBlty Volleyballers bowed before the superior combination work
of a starry Y.M.C.A. outfit on Wednesday night at the campus gym to
the  tune  of  15-9,   16-3 and  16-0.
FIRST OUTSIDE  MATCH
This Is the first eutslds competition thst ths velleymen have
had thia year and In spite of the
scores they put up a game battle.
Lack of practise was ihe telling
point against ths studente In a
game where practlas Is nseded
more than In any other indoor
sport.
Straight, Mason, Love, Elfstrom,
Kollsneck and Harold upheld the
honor of the blue and gold. The
very presence of these hardies
proves that the good old custom of
batting a ball back and forth over
a net Is more exercise than most
of the lads deriding it get ln a
month. Intra-mural games are
played every Wednesday and Friday In the gym, so why not turn
out to cheer the boys along.

Charlie Hitchins' Boys to Make Second Successive Trip; Roundballers Hope For Nanaimo
Jaunt
U.B.C. soccermen, having shelved
the idea of adding more reinforcements to the Invasion, in favor of
a possible Nanaimo trip in the near
future, continue with their league
schedule on Saturday.
TO MEET FRASERS
Fraser Cafe will play host to the
campusmen at Sapperton Park, and
a rough, bruising battle is predicted. Last time the teams met the
Royal City boys were close victors, but not before they made a
stirring rally to come from behind
and  overtake  the  students.
The prospect of another trip
out of town has got the roundballers optimistic, as last weeks
Jaunt to Abbotsford produood a
brilliant Blue and Qold win. This
week, however, It might be pointed out that the short Westminster trip will hardly bs as stimulating as the Abbotsford run,
and also that Fraser Csfe are
somewhat higher In the league
standings. Such trivial mattsrs
have little effect on the soocermen, however, and they Insist
that they will return with a victory.
