Prominent Judges
The Vancouver debate ia being held
in the Oak Room of tha Hotel Vancouver. Professor Day, honorary
president of the Parliamentary Forum will be in the chair. Several
prominent legal minds will do the
judging and contrary to the unfortunate result of the Imperial Debates
will decide tbe Issue themselves.
Ralph S. Lear, a pupil of Mrs. N.
Palsley-Benn has kindly consented
to sing before the debate.
Advance ticket sales have been
rather disappointing, the student

reasonable, 25c for students and 35c

Prose Laureate of the Letters Club
on Tuesday night, when the club
held its annual "Original Contributions Evening" at the home of Mrs.
H. F. Angus.
Frances Lucas won the award for
the best poem submitted, and now
holds the position which Ronald
Grantham had last year. Dorothy
Johnson has taken Bill Mathers'
place as Prose Laureate.
About twenty members assembled,
each of whom had to contribute a
short piece of creative writing.
Poetry predominated as the most
popular choice. Familiar essays, descriptive pieces, and parodies were
also represented.
After the readings and discussion,
ballots were cast for the best work

crowned the victors.

tendency to drag spoilt the rhythmic

made up for however, by the fine
rhythmic swing and brightness of
the concluding "Witch" valse.
The string section of the orchestra
were heard to especially good advantage In "Chanson de Matin" and
"Chanson de Nuit," two songs for
orchestra composed by Sir Edgar
Elgar. . The happy lyrical quality
of the termer song was well expressed by the players, but it was
in the more sombre "Chanson de

and shadings were obtained. A little more contrast between the Adagio and the second rather quicker

The dramatic possibilities ot the

conductor and the opening Adagio,
in which the clarinets and basoons
play the melody to the soft accompaniment of the strings, was especially effective. The Allegro, a movement Invested with many technical
difficulties, was smoothly rendered,

It is with considerable disgust that we learned yesterday
that a mere seventy freshmen turned out to their elections.
For years the Frosh have been noted on the campus for their
pep and enthusiasm. This year the enthusiasm seems to have
run to rowdyism and heckling—a thing to be deplored in any
meeting, let alone one on the campus.
Freihmen ghould remember that they are supposed to have
reached the age of discretion. It was found necessary in the
past to have the Junior Member act as class president lor the
fall term, but if the example Arts 36 has set is carried out in
future years, it will be necessary to deprive the Frosh of the
privilege of electing their own executive.
We gincerely hope that a better standard of behaviour is

We, the members of the Publications Board, would like to
extend hearty thanks to Mr. R. J. Cromie, genial editor of the
Vancouver Sun, for his kindness in allowing us to invade his
newspaper and to edit three editions on last Tuesday.
This is the second time he has allowed the Board to descend upon his offices, and we hope the event has now become
an annual one. It provides 'pubbites' with an insight into the
workings of a full sized newspaper, replete in all its departments, and which the Ubyssey cannot hope to emulate. The
experience, however, is valuable.
Long will we remember the hectic rush.

The renaissance of the art of debating on this campus is
worthy of more than passing notice. Through the initiative and
efforts of the members of the Parliamentary Forum and the
untiring assistance of their Speaker, Professor J. Friend Day,
an entirely new spirit has superseded the former state of decrepit inactivity.
The fact thatlhe Parliamentary Forum is now fielding three
teams of debaters, one in California, one in Saskatchewan and
one at home is sufficient evidence of the amazing progress of
the last year. The high standard of the teams fielded bears full
witness of the excellent results attained. The debaters require
only an intelligent and active public interest to place their art
on a secure and permanent basis at this university and ln this
The splendid audience which attended the British debate of
last season augurs well for the future. To-night the team of
Whimster and Miller meet a University of Manitoba pair in the
'Hotel Vancouver. It is the duty of every student to make this
event a success, both by his own presence and by obtaining the
interest of the general public. Student tickets are only twenty-
five cents.
The university requires all the support available from the
public of this province. The debating activities should bring forcibly to their notice that a program worthy of the taxpayers'
money is being carried out by the students.

Bright Idea
The new governor of Washington,
a Democrat, has had an idea about
education. He suggests that the University of Washington lower its entrance requirements, in order that
the less intelligent students may
have the benefit of a college education. Almost any day we expect to
hear of the honorable governor drain*
ing the Pacific so that the timorous
may learn to swim in shallow water.
"The Alarm dock," an undergraduate publication of Montreal made
its much heralded debut early this
month, according,to the McGill Daily.
The editors are political adherents
of the Cooperative Commonwealth
Federation, a political body of socialistic doctrine. The now magazine was greeted with complete sale
of the entire edition during the first
two days after puDucation, which
must have been gratifying. The sellout may be attributed however, to
the realms of favorable publicity lt
has received.
The criticism offered In "The
Bookshelf," a regular feature of the
"Daily," was that it was expository
rather than critical, and a more intolerant attitude was recommended.
Somehow* one suspects that "The
Alarm Clock" may after all, be
simple student burbling. However,
we may be leaping at conclusions,

a position with the Granby Consolidated Company, to prospect for them

I was flattered when Thomas Antoine
consulted me. He waa just an ancient
Indian, smelling abominably of fish,
but he brought me a lump of copper
70 per cent, pure!
Glorious dreams raced through my
mind. I would be rich—those prospectors would never laugh at me
again, if only I could bamboozle the
old native into showing me the source
of the ore.
He was easy. For $100 he took me
in his boat up the coast to an inlet
that wound back Into the mountains.
He guided me up a slippery trail,
reached a rocky cleft, and pointed
with his finger. I dashed forward and
found pure copper—but less than a
cubic yard of it.

fellow. I can hardly believe that he
tricked me, and yet—and yet—well,
I've come back to study psychology!

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It may be that an Honour System
and a Discipline Committee are incompatible, but it appears that, at
this University, we have neither.
This was particularly evident at the
Pep Meeting held to "honour" the
basketball team from Yakima.
One cannot imagine that University
students are not aware of the possible, and, indeed, quite probable results of shooting peas with a peashooter, from the gallery of the auditorium at those below, particularly
when .many of those below were
looking up.
With regard to the students who
were participating in the horse plsy
one can think ot but two explanations for their conduct: either they
were too embryonic to realise the
probable results of their actions, or
else they were callously indifferent
as to the consequences to anyone
but their little selves. (It might be
noted in this regard that the child
of one of Vancouver's workers in the
juvenile delinquency field wss one
of the most enthusiastic participants
In this "sport".)
With regard to the Discipline Committee there appear to be but three
explanations: either they are not
aware of the responsibilities of then*
office as members of the committee,
and, or they are too lethargic to perform those duties, or they did not
have enough college spirit to attend
the pop meeting at which the visitors from Yajtima were expecting to
be welcomed. The first two are
probably the more reasonable suppositions if one were to judge from
the way student affairs have been

It is not likely that they would miss
the pep meeting since, though they
might not go to welcome the visitors
to the University, minds of such calibre would scarcely fall to witness a
Felix the Cat Picture.
"But," some students will ask,
"what is likely to result from this
demonstration of 'University Pap'?"
First, it is a fortunate accident that
one or more students have not lost
their eyesight. The inevitable costs
of such injuries would not be borne
by the "sportsmen" who caused them
both because there were too many
participating in this "sport" for the
injured person to pick the guilty one,
and because those who were participating were minors.
Then there are the probable consequences to the University. Think
of the publicity the University would
get from such an accident.
The members of the Discipline
Committee were elected because the
majority of the students had confidence in them; let us hope to see
this confidence better justified in the

Manchurian Situation
Dr. Nitobe referred only very
briefly to the Manchurian situation
He regretted the fact that the League
had thought that European methods
could be applied to Far Eastern
problems. He did not believe that
the League investigated fully the
Japanese basis tor provocation. However, he felt that he could rely on
a fair-minded view of the question
from the Canadian people.

A financial report from the Big
Four Canadian Rugby League was
explained by Al. Pike, of the Varsity Canadian Rugby Club. Varsity
receives no money from the league
this season, but will hold a credit
note for seventy dollars entitling it
to second call on gate recipts next
fall. This resulted from the fact that
three of the other Big Four teams
required money for payment of last
fall's expenses, and therefore U.B.C.
agreed to accept the credit note instead of cash.
Council granted permission to the
Varsity Swimming Club to send a

How To Wear
A Tuxedo
About the tux. or Tuxedo, depending on what you pay for it. Or them.
A tuxedo Is an absolutely colourless garment consisting of 17 pieces.
Or 18, depending on the studs. These
studs are rivet-like affairs designed
to hold the various pieces together.
They are Inserted, with shattered
dignity and a crow-bar, into the
shirt at various strategic points, for
the meaning of strategic, ask Xing
John to show you his dictionaries.
Or ask the C.O.T.C.
In front, protecting the chest and
tummy—or abdomen—is a cuirass (if
that's the word we want) of stiffened shirt-material. Why it is stiffened we do not know. It is rigid
enough to be uncomfortable, and yet
not armor-piated enough to resist
the onslaught of bullets, or icecream either.
The collar is also starch-impregnated to such an extent that it has
a saw-like effect on one's neck. Men
have been known to commit suicide
by rapidly rotating the head—and
neck, of course—against the collar.
The record time for. severing the jugular is 34 seconds, while the complete
decapitation has been accomplished

If you wish to brighten up your

something like that. The thing must

begin with.
You may also enliven your ensemble by wearing diamond studs
In your shirt front. I do not advise
diamond studs for the back collar-

a word of warning. Wear a good
diamond—something about half an

is apt to be considered a trifle Wool-

Second Half Disastrous To Tourists
Varsity Senior A basketballers
showed Tuesdsy night that their victory over Yakima during the holidays
was no mistake when they again triumphed over them by a 40-41 score.
As in the first game, the first halt
wm close, the half-time score being
11-14 for the local boys, but Varsity
ran wild in the second stansa and
tossed' In baskets with abandon to
out-score the tourists 22-7 .
Yakima Load at Start
Yakima started the game with a
rush, and grabbed off a 4-polnt load
before Nicholson dropped In the first
Varsity score. The Southerners, however, managed to scrape along in the
lead for the first ten minutes, until
Campbell and Nicholson combined for
two beautiful baskets, to give Varsity
the edge at 9-8.
The tourists called time-out in an
effort to alow up the Blue and Oold
squad, who were travelling at a fast
pace. On the resumption of play they
once more took a one-point lead
when Captain Davis sank one from
near centre. Soon after this, however,
Laurie Nicholson and Rann Matthison,
who had replaced Bardsley, ran in
three beautiful baskets to give Varsity
a dot mite lead. Half time came soon
after with the score at lt-U.
Second Half AU Varsity
Tha Blue and Oold started the second halt with a rush, and soon had
pttaned their lead up to eleven pouits.
Campbell and Matthison were showing great form, and were sinking baskets with great abandon. The Yakima
boys seemed a little upset at the way
things were going, and began to shoot
from well out Instead of working the
ball in well. The result was that they
were held to three field goals and one
foul during the period.
When Varsity were holding a nine-
point lead at 29-20, Coach Allen sent
in Ex-manager Mansfield for Nicholson. From the tip-off at centre Rann
Matthison combined with Campbell
and Ken Wright to score the prettiest
basket of the game. Just before Bardsley came In to replace him, he scored
two more beautiful baskets to round
out a nice evening's work. He was
given a good hand as he left the floor.
At the same time Dick Wright replaced Ken Wright at guard, Pi Campbell going to forward.
Varsity Press Till Finish
Shortly after Nicholson came back
on the floor for Campbell, PI had
been playing a great game at both
guard and forward, and got a big
hand as he retired from the game.
The new formation kept up the pressure, with Dick Wright running In
five points in the few minutes ot play
left. Substitutions by the Yakima
squad failed to check the Blue and
Gold who were under the visitors'
basket as the gun went. The final
score was 40-21.
Captain Davis lived up to advance
reports as a hard checker, filling his
position at guard well. Bishop, snapshot artist, was high man for the
Yakima squad with six pouits. He
could get his shots away with amaz-
the-hole plays.
Campbell was outstanding for the
home squad, both on guard and on
attack. His ten points were well-
earned, and represented a number of
fine combination plays. The Varaity
boys fought hard the whole game,
and played more as team than in recent games.
The teams: Varsity—Osborne (6),
K. Wright (4), Mansfield, Bardsley,
Nicholson (S), Matthison (10), D.

Team Loses Second
Game in Row, 33-31
Student Squad Give
Poor Exhibition
Still ln a daze as far as league
games are concerned, Varaity Senior
A basketball team dawdled around on
the floor for forty minutes and were
decidedly outclassed in every department by the fighting Province quintette at the Westminster Arena Wednesday night, losing 88-31.
Spirit Ucking
Although the students almost pulled
the game out of the fire In the last
minute, they were, nevertheless, playing a losing game from the first, and
no possible alibi can be offered for
the defeat. Bather it may bo said that
just as long as the team continues its
Indifferent attitude, and plays more
like a bunch of strangers than a peppy hard-working unit, then Just as
long will it continue to be defeated.
In the last two games there has
not been hardly a single spark of team
spirit or determination in the Blue
and Oold camp. The team that had
previously captured the admiration of
every fan for its splendid cooperation
and strong team spirit has, for the moment at least, bean self-transformed
into a lackadaisical group of halfhearted individuals.
Play Adanacs Saturday
They have a chance, however, to
redeem themselves hi a large measure
on Saturday night when they engage
the Adanacs for the second time this
half of the league. A win for the students tomorrow, night will put them
once more in a strong position for top
place, while a lose may make It hard
for them to grab a play-off berth.
U.B.C. Ahead At Half Time
With the score 10-7 against them
after about ten minutes of sloppy
playing, the Blue and Gold outfit got
together on their combination, and
Bardsley, Hooker, Wright, Nicholson
and Osborne each scored a basket
without a reply from the opposition
to give them a five-point lead.
After this rally the students wilted
again and let Peeblea through to score
two baskets and end the half 15-14.
Score Tied
Three minutes of play in the second
period ended with the score tide at
18-18, but while Varsity struggled hard
to get five points, the newspaper lads
broke through for six baskets and a
foul shot to take an 8-polnt lead.
Varsity Almost Win
With four minutes of play left, Pi
Campbell snared a basket and foul,
and started a rally that all but pulled
the game out of the fire. Ken Wright
and Nicholson each got a basket, and
Bob Osborne a free throw to make the
score 31-31.

Emerson Hit
Of Pep Meet
For Yakima
By V. L.
That outside talent is unnecessary
to give spice to U.B.C. pep meetings,
was again proved on Tuesday noon.
Amidst the clamouring of tho thundering herd, some In disguise in their
red Jackets, the meeting started with
a sissling Skyrocket. Harold King
started off the music with "HaU
U.B.C," followed by "Sleep, Come
On and Take Me," but Judging from
the applause, the arms of Morpheus
embraced no one.
The actual highlight of the program was undoubtedly 'Jack Emerson's playing of his own composition.
Emerson's' versatility as a musician
Is widely renowned, but he exceeded
himself in this number. Many remarks were passed that Emerson
should have' this as yet unnamed
composition published, as it surely
compares favorably with the popular
hits of the day.
The Yakima team, Introduced by
Bob Osborne from the stage, were
given a rousing welcome. We deeply regret, however, that our spotlight literally could not touch a certain member ot the visiting team, but
the good-natured Yakimanian didn't
teem to complain.
In spite of the kindly audience offering him, in fact insisting that he
accept, the remains of their midday
repast, Milt Owen made an announcement that nominations for
Freshman elections were due on
Thursday, the latest Bill Whimster
then spoke on the forthcoming Alma
Mater meeting.
"We want Mickey!" was the cry of
the assembly, but Gordy Hilker
made the startling announcement
that a Sclenceman had Jammed the
film Into tiie projection. (Strange
how, after that disappointment,
everyone's'generosity towards Hilker
with their lunches was demonstrated)
... Oh well, thc way of all leftovers ... or sumpin'.
The orchestra soothed the raging
crowd with several numbers. Harold
King enacted the ideal "All-Canadian Girl," and at last admitted himself a pansy . . . and in front of
everybody, too. A modernistic "poem"
was aptly rendered by drummer
Malcolm Pretty who , ln his flowing
robes and matted beard, did look
quite the "prexy." King and Charlie
Poulette then gave their interpretation of "Wabash Blues." Other featured numbers by the orchestra were
"Goofus," and "Louisiana Hayride."
Also, Emerson fiddled Mendelssohn's
"Spring Song" with vo-do-de-o-dos
and other sound effects supplied by
the orchestra.
After a final cheer, during which
uncooked beans were showered from
the gallery, Felix the Cat drew the
meeting to a close by performing
his antics on the asbestos curtain.
(By % the way ... I like bean soup.
There were lots of beans strewn
around. To make bean soup, you
wash the beans and coo«. them. We
had no beans at home. We had bean
soup for Tuesday night's supper.)

At one time U. B. C. possessed a track club of which it
could well be proud, but during the last few years Interest in
this branch of sport has been becoming more and more laxa-
daisical. Track is listed as a major sport, but athletic authorities
around the campus are beginning to become very dubious Of
its remaining as such.
There is no reason in the world for this attitude as it betrays a lack of confidence in the students' ability to support an
institution in campus athletics which has been one of our proudest boasts. With such men as Harold Wright, Canadian Olympic
star, and Haddon Agnew, discuss and weight star enrolled this
year, it's only fair that the students in the university should give
the track club every support.

Today, news reaches us that ln an
Interclass soccer game the Theologs
won a game by default from the Frosh
—this is bad enough, but this happens
to be thc second defaulted game of
the freshmen.
Only last week thc same question of
organisation arose in tho lack of organization in inter-class basketball,
and now tills weak it is soccer.
If we're going to have Interclass
sports at all let's get organised!
I hear that the Soccer Club is seriously considering s project of dropping any team in the Inter-class Soccer League defaulting any more than
three games.
Only one more time, Frosh.
Wednesday's Arte '83 Education
interclass soccer meet wu postponed
until next Monday—the pedagogues
had a noon lecture.
The two League loaders in the interclass soccer will play off for tho right
to moat the winner of the Knockout
series, we hear. If under any circumstances the winner of tho Knockout
series should be a league winner, tho
team standing second in that section
will take the place of the league leader in the league play-offs.
Although Hal the great has been
banished from the ranks of Arte '34,
the Juniors have been busy rebuilding their squad and are pretty confident that they can take all the games
which they are forced to re-play.
Tommy Mansfield has left the class
team for the Senior A team, but
Biff McLeod and Oeorge Prlngle of
the Senior B's should fill hi well. The
re-vamped line-up swings into action
with a game on January 26th against
the Frosh.

Eager To Avenge Previous Defeats By

Unless old King Frost lifts his
frozen paw before Saturday, the rugger match between North Shore All-
Blacks and Varsity will probably have
to be called off. Those two aggregations have clashed twice before, and
on both occasions, North Shore
squeezed through with narrow victories, and sq Varsity Is out for blood.
Despite the fact that a practice was
impossible yesterday, the University
of B.C. will field a strong team; in
all probability the McKechnie Cup
team ef last week will be used against
the Tisdall Cup-holders. Owing to the
completion of the Miller and Tisdall
Cup schedules, this game, If played,
will be an exhibition.
Varsity Fielding Same Pack
Headed by Rogers and Morris, the
scrum will be the same as that which
opposed Victoria last Saturday, with
the possible exception of Max Stewart, who wu injured. Button, Senkler and Gross will play flrstwtk with
Brown, Pearson, Sogers and Morris
ln the secondary phalanx.
The games In the interclass soccer
league for next week are as follows:
Monday, January 23, Arts 33 vs.
Wednesday, January 25, Arts 36 vs.
Arts 34.
Friday, January 27, Aria S3 vs.
These will be the last league games
in the Arts league. After these have
been played off, the league will turn
to the knock-out series to determine
the league winner.

False Alarm
Visions of battle,, murder, and
sudden death flashed across the
minds of scattered observers on the
campus yesterday as an untoward
sight met their eyes.
Escorted by the law, In the well-
known form ox Sitting Bull, a large
ambulance clanged down the Mail.
Was it another Arts-Science brawl,
now a thing relegated to the more
prosperous past, when one ruined

Had some freshman, in a belated
mood of vicious revenge, attacked
and done for a sophomore? Or vice
versa? Had the secret of the Spring
Play been revealed, and "Alibis"
proved useless? The campus was
athrill  with  expectation.
But all in vain. The vehicle hesitated at tbe end. of the drive, then
turned back without stopping, and
sped down from Varaity without
collecting a single victim. The un-
dergradate yen for gore wu not
satisfied on this occasion after all.
