Toronto "Varsity"
Comes to Support
Of U.B.C Students
Editor Urges N.F.C.U.S. To Offer Support
To Student Body Here—All Eastern Utii-
vertitiet Follow Suit
The following article, reprinted from the University of
foronto "Vanity" of January 18, indicates the interest that
■tern Canadian colleges are taking In event* happening ln
Jritiah Columbia. This interest lg further evidenced by a let-
>r which Earl Vance, president of the Alma Mater Society,
lias received from the president of the N.F.C.U.S. The letter
asks for suggestions aa to how the Federation can be of assistance. /
s. q. s.
"It seems hard that a state university should be faced with
a forty-five percent cut ln the government grant when, except
for feeg, that university hag no other source of revenue that ia
worth mentioning. Yet that ia the situation that haa come to
pass In the last few days at the University of British Columbia.
The Committee appointed to deal with the allocation of funds
has reported that it may be necessary to close certain departments, abolish some faculties, confine activity to first and second year work, and abolish research work. While students have
registered vigorous protest and the downtown press have scored
the government for contemplating such drastic action, we are
assured that it is a possibility, and that final action will be taken
in the legislature next month.
"The University of British Columbia caters to the whole
province, although the city of Vancouver has a majority in the
student body, due largely to the concentration of population
in that city. The students are very much alive and want to
prevent any curtailing of present facilities, which are quite limited, but the state cannot see its way clear at present to obviate
the difficulty. As the Western Provinces are much harder hit
by the critical conditions of finances than the East, it seems
a step that should not be taken without endeavouring in some
way to secure the help of the Dominion. The university system
of Canada has never been as strong as it might have been, due
largely to geographical difficulties, but with the present wave
of nationalism that is sweeping the country, we feel sure that
the other provinces of Canada would come to the aid of British
Columbia rather than risk jeopardising the future of a. state
"Students are rapidly becoming conscious of the possibilities of closer union with one another, and the resultant benefits
for the nation. At such a time as this any interference with the
system in any individual province would be fatal, and must be
prevented if at all within our power. We are perfectly certain
that the other three universities of the West are vitally concerned over this matter, as there exists a closer bond of fellowship now than ever before. The essential thing is to bring the
matter to the attention of the powers that be, as the support of
constituted authority with its financial backing is one of the
prime requisites, if we are to take the alleged financial crisis
of the Tolmie government seriously. And as fellow students we
should have sufficient breadth of vision to come to the aid of
U.B.C. that they do not suffer as long as the rest of the Dominion is in a position to help them. Read again the proposed curtailment of activity and try to imagine such a process
going on in this university.
"Correspondence containing constructive criticism will be
welcomed, and we feel that some official representation should
be made to our governing body on behalf of this university
that faces such a dangerous situation. The newly elected president of the N.F.C.U.S. is president of our own Student Council,
and it is an opportunity for this organisation to show that it
is of value to the universities as a group. To him we appeal
that a thorough investigation may be made with a view to determining what may be done to solve the problem that is presented."
Short Course Aggies
To be Addressed
By President
For the first time since the establishment of the increasingly popular Short Courses in Agriculture,
students registered for this work will
be addressed by the President of
the Alma Mater Society. Earl J.
Vance will speak to the students on
"Some Aspects' of Student Life," in
Agriculture 100 at 1:00 p.m, on Wednesday, January 27. In previous
years these hard-working students
have been strictly ignored by the
general student body and this is apparently the opening of a new era,
and bodes well for further co-operation and courtesy between the two
groups. All short course students
are asked to attend and any other
students that are interested will be

Rehearsals have been in progress
for about three weeks, and thc actors are beginning to get a real grip

Some regret has been expressed
that Bill Cameron, leading man in
last year's Spring Play, "The Young

this year, He is still active in the
club, however, serving at present on
its executive board, and will probably return to the footlights again

The problem of student discipline
came in for considerable discussion.
It was pointed out that the majority
of the student governments handled
the problem themselves. This, however, was not the case as far as Manitoba was concerned, where a movement was on foot to put the administration of this phase of student life
entirely in the hands of the faculty.
This was felt to be an unfortunate
condition, and steps were taken to
oppose it.
The relationship of paid assistants
was discussed at great length. Toronto
and McGill were the only two universities apart from B.C. which employed
full-time employees. At the other
colleges there is no apparent difficulty
In handling those that they do employ,
In almost every case, some help is received from the faculty in the matter of coaches. It is general practice for a man to be employed part
time, usually as a physical instructor,
who also acts as a coach for one or
more of the major sports. In this way
the expense of training athletic teams
is considerably lessened,

energy to rehearsals. Final tryouts

The scenery for the opera is being
arranged under the direction of Gordon Wilson. Alice Rowe, leading
soprano, also looks after the costumes, most of which are being

Owing to the demand for seats
last year, the opera will be produced
four nights instead of three as for-

The task of producing an opera is
not an easy one. It entails much

work of synchronising the different
sections begins. Members of the society are urged to realize this, and

No public statement was isued as
a result of the meeting of the Special Committee of the Board of Governors which is considering the proposed cut in the legislative grant to
the University, when that body met
Thursday, January 21.
The committee which consists of
Messrs. B. C. Nicholas, F. J. Burd,
C. Spencer, R. L. Reid and Dr.
Klinck, considered two matters at
the meeting. The first of these was
the memoranda prepared by the
President and the Deans of the various Faculties with respect to tRe
proposed budget reduction. The
second matter was a communication
from Mr. Sherwood Lett which is
believed to have included a request
for information concerning the University.
A meeting of the Board of Governors was held last night and it is
possible that the report of the Special Committee will be made public
as a result of this meeting.

Merritt Herald Criticizes
Proposed Cut In Grant
(Reprinted from  the  Merritt  Herald)
A clever Merritt student won the Governor-General's medal and a $100
Scholarship for being top in Yale district in the Junior Matriculation examinations. She wished to take a pharmacy course at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Because the course she wished to take was
not available at the U. B. C. she enrolled at the University of Alberta in
Edmonton, in other words outside her own province, Not only this, but
the student loses scholarship credit that is applicable in the U. B, C. but
not in the University of Alberta. This same student has begun he* career
in Edmonton by passing her first examinations with First Class Honors.
This example illustrates what may be repeated many-fold if the proposed
slash in grants by the B. C. Government to the University of British Columbia results in elimination of educational departments. B. C. Students,
educated out of B, C. revenue, will be forced in large numbers to go East
or to the United States for university training, ther* to live, there to spend
money, there to become adopted, educationally, and there to be claimed as
a home product in the case of outstanding successes as students. Page Two

It is nearly three weeks since the news of
the proposed cut in the legislative grant to the
University broke on the campus. At the time
it was generally felt that the matter was a serious one and that something should be done
about it.   What is the situation today?
An, atmosphere of secrecy pervades the
campus. The Special Committee of the Board
of Governors investigating the matter has declined to make a statement. The president of
the Alma Mater Society has been unable to
obtain pertinent information which he desired.
It is rumored that the students are organising
but no one seems to know much about it. The
Alumni are going to act, it is said, but nothing
definite has been heard. Professors object to
being quoted; efforts are being made to withhold news from the downtown press; the Ubyssey has been frequently asked to refrain from
publishing this fact or that bit of news. At all
costs nobody must know what his neighbors
are doing.
If the proposed cut is going to materialise
and nothing can be done about it, the sooner
that fact is made known the better it will be
for all concerned. At present students, at
leasi those in executive positions, and probably
some members of Faculty, are wasting valuable
time wondering what is going to happen. If,
on the other hand, the situation is not as bad
as it has been made to appear, that is all the
more reason for making public all the facts.
If something can be done why not do it openly
instead of acting as though every group was
suspicious of every other group.
The University is a public institution; a reduction in the legislative grant such as has
been proposed would affect everyone connected with the institution; it is therefore
everybody's business and everybody is entitled
to know what is being done. Some people are
beginning to think that even a hash, hash
policy would be preferable to the present hush,
hush variety.
Elsewhere in this paper appears an editorial reprinted from the University of Toronto
"Varsity." In effect this article suggests that
other Canadian universities are prepared to
come to the aid of U.B.C. in the financial crisis which is threatening it. That such an idea
has recognition of wider soope than among the
editorial writers of the "Varsity" is proved by
the fact that the president of the Alma Mater
Society here has already received a letter from
the president of the N.F.C.U.S. asking if that
organization can be of any assistance to the
Pacific Coast college in its hour of need.
This action on the part of the University of
Toronto and the N.F.C.U.S. is probably unique
in the history of Canadian universities. Whether or not the students outside British Columbia can be of any practical assistance to those
at U.B.C, the gesture is one which should gladden the heart of every university man and
woman in Canada.
More than 2000 miles of prairie and mountain separate Toronto and Vancouver. The traditions of the university there differ from those
of U.B.C. The interests of the Toronto students are not the same as those of British Columbians. And yet within a few days of the
announcement of trouble on the Pacific Coast,
concrete evidence is forthcoming that the students there are prepared to come to the aid
of their less fortunate western colleagues.
There are more than 50,000 university students in Canada and if this prompt action on
the part of Toronto can be taken as an example of the cooperation which may be expected from other Canadian colleges then there
seems no reason why the N.F.C.U.S; cannot
develop into a very real force.
A great deal of discussion concerning the
Totem and whether or not it should be published at all this year took place before Christmas. This discussion delayed to some extent
a start being made on the necessary work.
The Totem editors this year are therefore
working under an additional handicap to the
many which have fallen to the lot of their
Under these circumstances students will
realise the importance of submitting all the
material required for the annual promptly,
that is, either on or before the date set as the
dead line. If the Totem staff cannot get the
n i:, ir y material, it means one of two things.
Either the book will be published in an incomplete iorm or it will come out at a later
dcto than that which has been set. The disadvantage of putting out an incomplete record
must be obvious to everyone.
In fact, such an annual would sacrifice a
great part of its value. If, on the other hand,
it were to be issued later in the term than
has been anticipated, it would be a very serious
matter for the editorial staff, since it would
involve jeopardising their marks in the spring
examinations. Moreover, experience has shown
that unless the Totem is on sale well ahead
of the examination period the number of copies
which will be sold is likely to be materially
affected. If this happens, a direct loss to the
whole student' body, both those who purchase
annuals and those who do not, will result. It
should therefore be plain that it is to every individual's advantage to cooperate with the
Totem staff to the fullest extent of hisw her
ability. This can be done by handing in all
requested information at the earliest possible
An interesting article by K. Ikuta on the
Manchurian problem appeared in The Ubyssey recently.    The writer presents a strong
case for his country.
The Unruly        Granted that the situation in
Citizen Manuchuria   needed   attention,
Mr. Ikuta does not explain how
Japan was justified in taking extensive military action and in defying the League of Nations. Why was not the consent and co-operation of China and the other League powers
sought? At the time I began to think that
Japan must be dominated by a militaristic
"junker" class, similar to that which controlled
Germany before the war. A Japanese friend,
however, tells me that such an idea is incorrect, that stories about the Japanese military staff being able to oppose and nullify
policies of the foreign office are untrue. In
fact, according to my friend, Japan is as democratic as the western democracies, and the only
untoward influence on her government is the
same one that keeps a guiding hand on the policies of western nations—the influence of the
big capitalists.
That influence may account for the Manchurian invasion, and also for the failure of the
League to employ an economic blockade
against Japan. Over the week-end came the
news that a Japanese fleet was menacing
Shanghai, demanding cessation of the boycott
and of hostile demonstrations. Whatever excuses there may be for her unwise action in
Manchuria, this latest move of Japan's is astounding. If the Chinese do not want to trade
with Japan, that is their business, and Japan
has no right to try to make them do so. Surely
the League will not tolerate further developments along this line. If it does, one must incline strongly to the view of a local high school
student, referred to in this column last term,
that we must have Socialism before there can
be peace and co-operation between nations.
"Out of the mouths of babes .... "
In the actions of western powers during the
period of imperialistic expansion, Japan has
precedent for all she has done. Japan ignores
the fact, however, that there is no point in
harking back to such precedents. The Great
War climaxed that period of international rivalry and imperialism. The world has not suddenly entered the millenium, but there is a
great new world force, the League of Nations,
to which Japan has subscribed, and there are
certain treaties, intended to guarantee peace,
to which Japan has also subscribed. This
League and these treaties opened a new era,
an era demanding a greater degree of civilized conduct between nations. Japan is showing herself to be a rather unruly world citizen,
and that ought to be of greater concern to her
than the interests of a few profiteers—for a
policy of militarism and antagonism is not in
the real interests of a people.
I should be glad to hear from any of our
Japanese friends who can point out anything
unjust in what I have said.
Recently we learned that a heavy cut in the
government grant to the University may be
expected.   The news caused a stir throughout
the province, and several news-

As regards the liability of student
societies for public and private property damage, the majority of the
councils got around the difficulty by
asking the person who suffered the
damage to furnish names of offending students. If this cannot be done,
and usually it is impossible, no action need be taken. The only case
where U.B.C. has had to use its funds

the educational needs of the people, should not
be crippled in its work.
The proposed curtailment has aroused sympathetic interest throughout the rest of the
country, especially in other universities. The
Alberta 'Gateway' featured the news with a
front page streamer. The Toronto 'Varsity'
ran an editorial in which, in its traditional
forthright style, it urged the Canadian universities to do all they can to help the University
of British Columbia. It asked that the National
Federation of Canadian University Students
take the matter up, and consider in what ways
assistance may be given. The "Varsity" thinks
that curtailment at U.B.C. would not only be
a misfortune to the province, but a blow to the
educational life of the country.
Bonds between this university and those in
other provinces have been growing stronger as
contacts have been encouraged in sport and
debating. Now the student papers are forming a press union. Even yet, however, many
students on this campus do not fully realize
that they share a community of interests and
purposes with thousands of others from coast
to coast, in common with whom they have an
important part to play in the development of
the country. This feelingly outspoken sympathy from Toronto will strengthen the bonds
between east and west, and the N.F.C.U.S., if
it gives active support, will acquire a more
vital significance than it has ever had before. Tuesday, January 26, 1932

The great bridge game is ended.
McGoofus and his partner, Co-Co,
after trailing in the rear for the past
three weeks, picked up their skirts
and srinted down the home stretch
to win by a nose.
The most thrilling hand of the
whole tournament occurred last
night, Von Nurtz dealt. He passed,
Co-Co passed, C. de S. passed, McGoofus passed, Pippa passed and
37.9 per cent, passed. The cards
were dealt again; this time by Co-
Co. ,He bid two clubs, deScrepancie
made it three, McGoofus followed
with a four bid and Von Nurtz
pushed it up to five clubs.
The room became silent, the air
tense. It was Co-Co's bid. He
studied the faces of his opponents.
He obtained a mirror .and studied
his own. Then his hand travelled
slowly to his sleeve. A quick pass
of his two middle fingers produced
a rabbit, a silk hat, an egg, and a
handkerchief—but no clubs. He was
non-plushed.     He    doubled    Nurtz.
Co-Co himself explained the details of that hand to the press immediately  after  the  game.
"Von Nurtz," he said, "under-the
Impression that it was his lead,
played the ace of clubs. After he
had been severely reprimanded by
the third assistant referee, nis partner led the ace of clubs. I trumped
it, and led the king of clubs. This
was trumped in turn by my partner;
Von Nurtz led the ace of hearts,
which I took with the joker.
"Three tricks later, I found I had
no more cards, as I had had to drop
quite a few clubs on the floor in
order  to  trump  them.
"It is in just such a situation that
the supremacy of the card-in-the-
sleeve becomes apparent to the most
ignorant. Where would anybody else
have been? I ask you. If you reply, please enclose a stamped envelope.
"I provided myself with a few
cards from my sleeve, and the game
went merrily on. This time the opponents went out of business. I laid
down the straight flush in my hand,
and  claimed  the  pot.

"Trapped," gasped Blowout with
a giggle, He lit another cigarette.
Suddenly he began turning out his
pockets—a crust of bread, a piece
of string, a copy of Physics 59 exams
for twenty-four years ago, an X-ray
machine, fourteen revolvers, an Ink
bottle and a cup of coffee, which he
drank softly in the key of H minor.
All of a once he gave a whoop,
unstrapped his wrist watch, and
smashed it in the name of duty. He
removed the main spring, and set
to work to pick the lock.
Three days later the door creaked
open with a horrible jerk. "Success!" murmured Blowout as he lit
a cigarette. But the words died on
his lips before he had uttered them.
Eight husky Chinamen stood clustered around the figure of Suey, who
had opened the door with his key.
"Seize them," purred Chang,
snatching at a cigarette Blowout
had just lit.
We were seized, and our hands
tied behind our ears with pieces of
spaghetti. Blowout begged for a
cigarette, but was refused.
Chang's minions cast us into a
gloomy dungeon. After hours of
struggling, Blowout, who has always
been noted for his Herculean
strength, managed to break his spaghetti bonds. He hunted for a cigarette, but couldn't find one, He
ground his teeth in rage, seized the
powder, and smoked it in a spaghetti   tube,

In rosponse to innumerable requests for an outline of practical
parlor games for parties, I have condescended to write this article. My
first game is called "Can;on-the-
head," and is played as follows:
One of the party seats himself in
the centre of the room. A bootjack
is brought in and placed before him.
A large can is brought into the room
and rammed securely over his head.
The can should be as tight a fit as
possible. The onlookers are divided
into two sides. One group takes a
firm hold on the bootjack; the other
group attaches itself to thc person
wearing the can. The can is then
wedged into the V of the bootjack
and both sides commence a tug-of-
war. The next person whet volunteers to be "it" wins the game.
My next game is called "Revolution" and is very amusing. The prerequisites are sufficient redcaps and
torches to provide each player. A
realistic touch may be added by
painting a red gullotlne on the parlor wall Each player dons his or
h°r red cap, lights the torch and
iushes about the rdom crying, "Vive
la France!" "Down with the Arls-
tos." 'We want beer!!' .and other
treasonable phrases. When everyone
is sufficlenly exhausted a truce is
proclaimed, I'v.r.ng which tuch pl.ty-
er carefully sets fire to some article
of furniture in the room. The player who first arrives at the fire alarm
wins the game.
My third and last game is "Chicago" and is perhaps the most entertaining of all from the onlookers
One of : the players is proclaimed
"it." He or she is given a large .45
revolver and stands at one end of
tht room. A red spot is painted on
the rug. The players ono by one,
step on the spot and are shot down
by the perso.i who is "it" Sometimes this player takes two or even
three shots before the person on thc
spot is shot. This makes .!u game
After all the other players are
dead, the operator of the '45 phones
for the coroner and then commits
suicide, thus bringing to a close a
very pleasant evening.

In keeping with the popular custom of considering economy cuts,
Students' Council is discussing the
curtailment of social activities this
spring. The Senior Ball, the Science
'35 party, the Science Ball and the
Freshman hop are no longer certainties. The Science Ball especially is
as liable to come off as the ink spots
on my suit. Although the idea is
about as popular as noon-hour lectures, it has its advantages. We
might "create a favorable impression
in the public eye" and this is much
to be desired. Of course, once the
university was out of danger we
could switch back to the old program and enjoy ourselves as we
have been for the last decade or so.
By all means, we must act like tlie

thought of his vain attempts to learn
to inhale. And I sobbed. Possibly
it was my turn next.
And then my hair rose on end.
No small feat that, because its rather
long. I had seen a ghost! From a
corner of the room that had previously been absolutely empty, the
figure of Blowout had arisen! A
face, pale as death itself, was
streaked with blood, testifying to the
awful tortures he must have gone
through. A long black shroud
seemed to cover the rest of his body.
Bloodshot eyes stared out from beneath a tangled mass of hair. The
horrifying figure gave a ghastly
groan. So did I. For I had seen the
last awful detail. Wreathed around
his face were wisps of mist, or were
they emanations from the other
world he had come from? A cold
wind groped around me, touching
my face with its clammy breath.

"You can count me out, Mr. Director, I thought at first that I'd like to
act in this movie but I guess I can't
do it."
"What? You're going to drop it altogether. My dear man, you can do
nothing of the kind. You're about the
best man in the cast and we couldn't
do without you. And why wait till
now to tell me, when everything is
all set for final rehearsal. You have
a little touch of stage fright, that's
"No it isn't stage fright, I just don't

you're left hanging on the gallows,

"Oh no, I wouldn't mind that, at
all. It gives me time to compose myself for the next bit of acting."
"Then it's the next part you don't

Score 5-0
Vanity's senior soccermtn administered a substantial coat of whitewash to the Point Orey United squad
on Saturday at McBride perk when
they romped home to a 5-0 victory.
This win puts tho Blue and Oold team
in third place in the league tables,
and alao points to a Victory for tha
collegians when they encounter tht
Suburbanites again ia their replay ef
thc protested first round cup gam* in
the near future.
Frost and aim combined to render
the field a sea of mud, and the pall
soon assumed the apptaranee of a
large and slippery cannon ball, Quite
a ftw tniskleks came ai a result of
tht sloppy conditions, but Varsity
wart quicker at adapting themselves
to tht slow field and toon demonstrated a decided superiority in bell
After a ptrlot of sloshing back, and
forth through tht mun, Captain Paul
Kosoolln celebrated hla transfer to
tht centre forward position by notch-
ing Varsity's first counter. Dave Tpdd
next moved into tht limelight with
another shot which tht Point Orty
iustodlan failed to hlld, tht slippery
pigskin gliding away from his eager
clutches in a vary annoying fashion.
McDohgal than mada his presence felt
in no uncertain manner whtn ht
added a third goal from twenty yards
out which gave tha aforementioned
net-minder no chance whatever. With
tht score 3-0 and half time only a
few minutes away, Kozoolin headed
the heavy ball direct from a sizzling
goal kick and was knocked out Ht
was forced to leave the field suffering considerably from concussion, and
being unable to return was replaced
by Jlmmie Smith after tre interval.
The opposition put up a better
argument in the second half and play
was fairly even for some time. Varsity
finally took control, however, and
after a goal being dissallowed on the
grounds of offside, Jlmmie Smith
proved himself a very useful substitute by chaulking up the fourth
counter. From then on the Blue and
Gold squad monopolized the play till
the end of the ond of the game and
Mundie increased their score to the
total of five with an unstoppable
cross shot. The final whistle found the
ball in mid-field.
Archie McDougal turned in another
stellar performance and was again the
most outstanding player on the field.
Paul Kozoolin showed up favorably
in his new position at centre, and the
entire forward line showed a much
greater finish that indicates an improvement in the line of goal-getting
in the future. The backs and half
backs turned in a sound defensive
exhibition which forced the Point
Grey boys to register the proverbial
goose egg for their goal average,
The team: Frattinger; McGill, Grant;
Wright, Costain, McDougal; Waugh,

Varsity Junior Soccer team obtained
a further two points in the standing
when Victoria Road defaulted to them
Saturday afternoon.
This gives the team a good chance
to raise themselves another place in
the standing before the season is over,
a prospect which was very remote a
few weeks .ago. Victoria Road is now
very little ahead of them, while the
remaining games on the schenule are
with the weakr teams of the league.
Inter-class sport on the campus
has been under way for several
weeks, but the amount of interest
shown has been pathetic. In our
opinion competition between the different years should be a big drawing card, and it may be that our
august selves are at fault for failing
to give the contests the publicity
that they deserve. WeTl we can til-
ways remedy that.

Varsity caytrs chalked up another
victory when tht fast stepping Intermediate "A" squad handed tht Holy

Lome Falconer
Vacates Chair
Of Basket Club
'Owing to pressure of studies, I
.vill have to resign from the Presidency of the Basketball Club,"
Lome Falconer told members at a
meeting held in Ihe gym Friday afternoon. The resignation was accepted.
Ex-President Falconer kept the
chair lo'ig enough to carry out thc
duties of electing a new leader. Two
men were suggested—Doug. McCrim-
nion, iccently appointed assistant
manager of the Senior "A" team,
and Arnie Powell. After some discission it was pointed out that
Powell was ineligible inasmuch as
he is already president of the Golf
Club, and would have to resign that
position if he wished to accept the
basketball job. Some members of
the club thought that Falconer was
out of order in conducting the meeting after he had resigned and as
there was only one candidate for the
position left, they deemed It advisable that another meeting be held
Friday, January 29, with vice-president Jimmy O'Nefl in the chair.
Only a handful of the Basketball
Club was present for the meeting
and as a result the chairman had a
(tough time maintaining order. However, the fog ot debate lifted long
enough for the boys to vote an expression ot thanks> to be presented
In the form of a gift to Dr. Milton
Thorpe, who has also announced his
resignation as coach. All members
of basketball teams are expected to
attend next Friday's meeting. The
position of President of the Club is
a responsible one and It Is hoped
that all players will give some consideration to the selection of the new
officer. The main requirements are
that he be an upper 'classman and
that he have a thorough knowledge
of the basket game.
Lome Falconer will be sadly
missed in basket circles. Elected
president of the club last year, he
acted in every capacity from manager to dressing-room flunkey.
Lome's interest in the team was
well rewarded when Varsity copped
the Dominion Championship. A
large part of the preparations for
the St. Catherines series fell upon
his shoulders. 11118 year Lome
branched out still further when in
Nanaimo, with the team one man
short, he donned strip and went on
as guard, When it was announced
that the manager would not be permitted to tratfle east with the team,
Lome turned out in practise with
hopes of catching a place on the
squad. With the issue of exam results, he resolved to turn student
and hand over the basketball reins.
Friends say that the genial ex-president will have a tough time staying
away from the squared court and
the   hoop,

Vanity defeated C.N.R. 29-
28 in a thrilling Senior "B"
game at V.A.C. gym Saturday
By virtue of thip close victory Vanity eased into third
place in the league itandingi
and considerably enhanced
their chances of getting into tht
playoffs. The teams went on
tha floor with practically the same
standing and as a win was absolutely necessary they both hit a fast
pace. Varsity wu decldely on the
catching and in this half. The boys
couldn't seem to cljck together and
but for soma nice shots by Jimmy
Bardsley, the fighting Science man,
they would have gone down considerably more. Bill Lucas and Murray
McDonald were generally steady on
defense but Nicholson of C.N.R.
broke through for some nice baskets. Half time found Varsity down
The second half was productive of
even more ragged play but Varsity's
forwards found tha basket often
enough to give them a fair lead.
Jimmy Bardsley was hitting a Senior
"A" pace on a Senior "B" team and
drew a big hand from the crowd
that packed the V. A. C. gym.
With but three minutes to go Varsity led by 19-24. Two long shots
by C. N. R. ln the next two minutes
brought the crowd to their feet, the
score now standing 19-28. With one
minute left to play, three Varsity
forwards broke for the opposing basket. Biff McLeod took a pass and
missed a perfect "set-up," Wilf
Stokvis caught the ball as it passed
the basket and missed again while
Bill Lucas missed a third just for
good measure. The whistle blew
just as C.N.R. took possession and
Varsity raised enough energy to let
out a feeble whoop as they straggled
from the floor,  winners by  29-28.
The team: Murray McDonald (2),
Jimmy Bardsley (12), Bill Lucas (6),
Bobby McDonald (4), Biff McLeod
(2),  Wilf Stokvis   (3).
