Green  Toques and  Placards  Will  Adorn
the   Newcomers
"The wearing of the green" begins at U.B.C. to-day as
freshmen and freshettes don green toques and name placards
to designate them during the initiation ceremonies of the next
two weeks.
The placards have two purposes. They will serve as an
identification card in case any erring youngster is drowned in
the lily pond by a too-zealous sophomore vigilance committee.
They will also help the new arrivals to get acquainted with
each other.
The toques are knitted skuU-cape <*•/""     mm m,   'LL "

sexes—at least, they have to be worn
by both. They distinguish their possessors u a race apart.

This Year
Although the powers that be have
not yet succeeded in entirely closing
us down this year's registration shows
a drop of 138 over last year, according to figures presented to the board
of governors Monday night. The
total is 1458, while that of 1032 was
15to5, though lt la expected that late
registrations may number more than
100. The teacher's training course
alone has been limited, and only fifty
thru have bun admitted to date,
though a large number applied.

Puerile and plentiful were the
questions fired at the six or uven
upperclassmen who braved the dread
precincts cf the Freshman Information Bureau during the put week.
Dr. PUcher would have bun In
her glory studying the various attitudes adopted by the froah with regard to the information-givers. Some
would bounce brazenly forward with
a scornful look on their face and
aak snootily "Say, buddy, where's
the administration building?" But
when they heard the answer, they
were squelched. ,
Others, pink-faced, mild-mannered,
lurked about ten feet from the desk,
occasionally poking their head out
from behind a post, grinning when
they caught the eye of the Bureau

Unwelcome PubUdty
"The University hu received too
much publicity,of the wrong sort,"
continued tho President. "Our citizens need to realize some d tho real

health made by students and their
parents in order to obtain an education." The President declared that
even after raising the money for the
complete course many students were
unable to pay their graduation feu
and were thus prevented from graduating with their clau. There are
increased demands for loans and
scholarships which the University is
unable to fufill. Loans can only be
granted to studenst who have completed their second year.
Drastic Reductions
Due to present conditions the president waa afraid that the University
would haw to make yet more drastic adjustments. "However," he concluded, "there is u yet no substitute for brains and there wUl always be a place ln the world for

He was foUowed by Dean Buchanan who announced some changes

Players Surmount All Difficulties;
Rustics Held Spellbound
Despite the handicaps of narrow roads, paddle wheel
steamer, hick towns and decrepit platforms, the Players Club
managed to survive all difficulties on their annual Spring Tour.
With the previous presentations in North Vancouver, New
Westminster and Vancouver, it made a grand total of 17 performances, the fewest for several years past, but not so bad a
record for depression time. v
"Alibi," the detective play by Agatha Christie and Michael Morton, was
generously received at every place
but Alberni, where an over-confident
cast gave a poor performance on a
miserable stage and before a scanty
The result wu a "dressing down"
from Sid Risk, the director, rehearsals on the train and a swell performance the next night at Quallcum, a
place that always greets the club with
a packed and friendly house that Inspires the actors to their best.
Stage Difficulty
The stage at Quallcum was so small
that only curtains could be used for
ttcenery, but the set looked fine just
the same. The only dressing room
was a little kitchen, and grease paint
melted at a record rate Because some
well-intentioned lady would keep
coming to the door to see that the
coffee on the stove was kept boiling.
At Courtenay the next night a brilliant plan was evolved to circumvent the train. Why train? you ask.
Well, there is a logging railroad ten
the  students   and  sends   them   out
more qualified for work."
Human Interest
Dean Brock of Applied Science was
the next speaker and he asserted that
the University was a mine of "human interest" material which the
students would do well to study.
"It was easy for graduates to get
jobs twenty years ago when some of
the faculty were at University but
you students must realize that you
wiU have to work harder ln order
to accomplish
Dean  Clement
has a habit of running 50 or 60 cars
of logs down to the sea every evening
about nine o'clock. Stoppage of the
play was inevitable, but it was intended to keep up the atmosphere by
turning out the lights while mysterious figures roamed about the stage
and the odd revolver shot or so went
off. Then the train disappointed
everybody by arriving just as the
curtain fell on the first act 1
Shocking the Natives
The funniest things at Courtenay,
changes anywhere and anytime, mixed
company or not, but lt was new to
the Courtenay lads and they were
so shocked they were pop-eyed.
At PoweU River there was a change
from the usual cramped quarters to
a sumptuous hall and huge, ready-
made stage on which it was forbidden
to erect any scenery. Thia made the
performance more difficult than ln
small places.
The show finished about 11. Pack-
ing-up was done in record time in
order to seize the opportunity to Inspect the gigantic pulp mills. This
was done on the gallop, but only a
bit was seen, because the boat sailed
at midnight.

Touching upon the preparations
made by staff and students, President Klinck wont on to explain the
decreau in registration for the pruent session. Decreau wu attributed

the cumulative effects of the depression period.

Tlie maintenance of a high scholastic standard at the University of B.C. has long been
the cherished ideal of faculty, graduates and
students alike. A period of depression should
not be the excuse to forsake the toil of eighteen
Tlie greatly decreased government grant
has made the institution largely dependent
upon student fees for upkeep. With a smaller
enrollment this year, more stringent conditions
than ever before prevail.
The situation is. a serious one. Many activities faee still further curtailment. There is
a distinct danger that our high academic standing may suffer. Scholastic reputation, however, depends not wholly upon the financial
condition of the University, but also greatly
upon the calibre of the students and graduates
U.B.C. graduates have long enjoyed an enjoyable reputation throughout the world for
character and ability. A degree from ibis
University has acquired a valuable significance
lacking from that of many older-established
Whether this high standard is to be maintained and advanced depends entirely upon
the present generation of students. The handicaps are greater than ever before, but the
need for men and women of intelligent vision
has never previously been surpassed.
The world is looking today toward the universities for guidance. The universities should
accept the challenge.
A new draft of freshmen have entered upon
their college careers this week. Their high
school childhood has been left behind. It is
their duty now to knuckle down and show the
citizens of British Columbia the real potentialities that are being developed at the University. There exists a valuable tradition
which it is their duty to uphold in spite of all
All students interested in drama will welcome the project of the Player's Club to present noon-hour plays, thus following the excellent arrangement of a sister Society in rendering noon-hour musical recitals.
Illis new activity promises to silence the
criticism heard last year that the Player's Club
was "going to the dogs." It is true "Alibi"
presented last season seemed in some respects
disappointing but this was as much due to the
sterile nature of the play itself as to any
faults of production.
It is better for a University group to maintain its appeal by presenting good plays than
by choosing a play written primarily for popular appeal, then relying on high pressure business methods to swell the audience. Any professional entertainment organization can beat
the Players at this game.
"The Princess and the Page," to be presented Monday, is at least written by a dramatist of reputation. Students should applaud
the Club's new endeavor.
So see the play. Discuss with your friends
the merits and demerits of it, of the impressionistic set, of the acting. Nothing indicates
appreciation more than intelligent criticism.
N-any of the freshmerfarrivintf oh the campus come here as strangers, almost entirely
^without friends. They find it difficult to ad-

consequently their first year may be one'of

In a praiseworthy attempt to rectify this
lituation a, branch of the Y.M.C.A. is being

Introducing Arthur
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things,
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax
And cabbages and kings,
And why the sea is boiling hot,
And whether pigs have wings."
And that is to be theme of our weekly
address to all you lucky, lucky people. We
are at a decided disadvantage in writing this
just now. Arthur (Yes, Arthur Walrus, meet
the folks), and I, in true journalistic fashion,
omitted to get our picture down to the engravers on time, so lt may be ready to head this
immortal opera, and again, it may not. If it
is not, we pause to explain that Arthur Walrus'
picture with fins, whiskers and a very bitter
tear, graces the top. If it is here, we merely
say, "Behold," and pause for your concerted
Arthur is not named after my fellow
columnist, Mr. Mayse. He was born Arthur,
and we have adopted him because we like to
have something tangible to refer to when we
mention our Art in an off-hand fashion.
Right here we wish to get something
straight. We are not responsible for the editorial policy of the Ubyssey or anything that
any of the editors say, (and you ought to hear
them sometimes!); but just to make everything fair and square, they are not responsible
for us or our youthful burblings either. So
if we annoy you, let us know personally, but
if it's the Ubyssey, well, see the editor.
And now for our aims. I wanted to be
all sunshine and roses, but Arthur, who often
takes a gloomy aspect of things, said gruffly
through his moustache, "No. We've got to be
cynics." "0 Ar-thur," I said the way I do when
he gets out of hand. But he gave me a long,
sad look out of his limpid sea-green eyes, and
said grimly, "Cynic or swim." One doesn't
consign one's art to the briny deep with such
gay abandon, so what could I say ? (You're
right, but I said it behind closed teeth.) So we
have to be a bit cynical at times to satisfy
Anyway, this is what we hope to do. We'd
like to have the polish of the first columnists,
Addison and Steele, and we intend to attack
certain prevalent frivolities, even as they did.
We'd like to have the mastery of phrase manufacture of O. O. Mclntyre, our favorite columnist, and we'd like to spread a glow of enchantment over our subjects, as he does. We'd like
to have the originality and variety of Walter
Winchell and the color of wording he displays.
We'd also like to have some of his appetite for
hard work, but we're afraid that's beyond us.
We'd like to snoot-bust sentimentality, sedition
and all public pecadillos, as Mr. Butterfield
does, and we may try to moo attractively.
(That isn't our own phrase, we got it out of
TIME), as Hey wood Broun does. We want
certain qualities of Frances Lucas, whose name
still spreads a glow over this very spot, and
of Harold Straight, whose column in the Sun
was always diverting. We're aiming at jumping over the moon, Arthur and I, but if we get
over the fence we'll be lucky. If we do ring
the bell, you might let us know.
We want to express our public regret right
here, about the death of Ring Lardner. If
you've read any of his "Letters of a Rooky"
you don't need any elucidation as to who, he
was, and if you haven't read them, skip this
item. Here's a story which typifies his wit, as
much as it can be typified. He lived in a little
town outside New York called Great Neck, if
I remember rightly, and spent much of his time
writing nonsensical notes to his friends. Once
one of them wired him an invitation to dinner
in the city, and his answering wire said: "Sorry
can't come. Children's night out and I have to
sit home with the maid."
And that seems a good note to end this column on.
literary or scientific nature. Every effort should
be made to broaden the circle of acquaintances
beyond the scope of the lecture room.
As a contrast to those who are backward
in joining clubs, many freshmen endeavor to
take part in every activity that is offered. They
soon realize their mistake, but meanwhile their
studies suffer and the well-known Christmas
"bounce" often awaits them.
Moderation should be the watchward in all
phases of activity.

President Klinck pointed out, wu

Belief in Education
"In the outside press," said President Klinck, "there has been occasional reference to the fact that the
University has been in dup water.
'Is the University likely to continue,
and have parents sufficient faith in
University education?' are questions
asked. The answer is that people do
believe in higher education. They
are prepared to sacrifice for it, nor
do they always associate it with a
good, paying job."
FoUowing the President's address,
information sheets prepared under
the direction of Dr. Shrum were distributed, and the four hundred odd
freshmen, divided into groups headed by members of the Reception committee, ut out to familiarize themselves with buildings and campus.

The journey to Kamloops was made
at night, but sleep was fitful, what
with the heat and two in a berth. It
was here that the cast began a three-
night habit of missing out whole sections of the play and wriggling them
in afterward with professional ingenuity—almost. Anyway, the audience
usually never knew.
At Salmon Arm the club committed
a great faux pas. They neglected to
steal the Uttle baggage cart from the
hotel and to ride up and down the
main strut ln it to the horror and
amazement of the peaceful Inhabitants. Thus are traditions broken !
Successful Shows
The Vernon show was a riot. Never
were the actors so bursting fuU of the
spirit of devil-may-care; never was
the audience so vicoferously enthusiastic. When the orchestra struck up
the overture the cast began a crazy
dance on the stage. The curtain was
thin and the audience could ue
through it. They applauded noisily,
and the dancers retired in confusion.
Nerves were at the breaking point
that night. The actors were keyed up
to the best performance of the tour,
but they snapped at one another In
the dressing rooms, and Sid Risk collapsed as the curtain feU.
And then the sequel! Apple-pie
beds at the hotel, clothes tied In knots,
pyjamas waving from the windows—
and two young ladies who were securely locked in their room—luckily
for them!

Hitting their real form only at the
end of the uuon, the Varsity Senior
Soccer team displayed their ability
In a post-season seriu for the Mainland Cup. This trophy is annually
competed for by the best teams on
the Lower Mainland, and the last
time a Varsity squad entered the
finals was in 1924, when the "Wonder Team" of that year brought the
Cup to Varsity.
This spring the 1932-33 copy of that
team came within an ace of accom
plishing the same feat. After fighting its way to the finals, the Blue
and Gold lost out by the odd goal
in seven, in one of the fastest and
most thrilling games witnessed at
Con Jones Park during the whole
Their conquerors in the final, the
speedy Chlneu Students, reached the
lut bracket through disposing of
North Shore United, 1932 finalists for
the Dominion title, and undisputed
leaders of the V. and D. league lut
uuon. Varsity wu also called upon
to defeat a future title-holder, con-
qureing Cowan-Dodson, this year's
B. C. Champions, In a second round
The members of the squad which
reached the finals were: KosooUn,
(Capt), McGill, Costain, Frattinger,
L. Todd, D. Todd, Stewart, WoUe,
Gaudin, McDougal, Munday, Smith,
Of the above players, only a few
are returning u a nucleus for this
year's squad. Four prominent regulars from last year are among the
mining, theu being Bud Cooke, Pete
Frattinger and Otie Munday, who are
entering the busineu world, and
Laurie Todd, spark-plug of last season's forward lne, who has joined
with North Shore United.
The former veterans are lead by
Paul Kozoolin, two letter man, and
twice captain of the squad. With
him are Costain, the versatile veteran, who is playing his fourth year
with the Blue and Gold, the polished
full-back, Millar McGill, hard-driving Dave Todd, Bill Wolfe, Russ
Stewart, who both starred on the
half-line last year, and Hughie
Smith, the right wing speed-merchant. These men all played regular-
fy last winter.
Two veterans of former years are
welcomed back this year, Archie McDougal and Jock Waugh. Both
strong, experienced players, they are
strong on both defence and attack.
Newcomers turning out are Tim
Louie, with Chinese Students in 1931,
Allan Lloyd, a South Van. High star.
With them are Ev. Vollans and Dick
Smith, the former a star with Junior
squads for some years, and the latter
a recruit from Rugby. With these
men turning out, prospects of success in the V. and D. League first
division are rosy.

A new feature in this years grid
program is the fact that the Senior

Another point which Farrington
wished to get over to the student
body and especially the Frosh was
that if Canadian football is to be a
success, large turnouts with plenty
of enthusiasm to all the games is
absolutely  necessary.
Any person who is interested in
getting an executive position on the
Canadian Rugby Club is asked to
turn out for a special meeting Tuesday noon in Arts 106. These positions are not open to players.
With the beginning of the Fall term, the athletic activities
of the University are about to get under way once again. Varsity teams will be entered in all major and minor sports, testing their mettle in competition with the best of local aggregations.
Graduation, as always, leaves a huge gap in every branch
of athletics, which naturally produces a doubtful situation in
the realms of U.B.C. sport. Therefore it entails a responsibility
for the incoming class. I
We are certain that the reputation Varsity has enjoyed in
the past will be no less enviable this year, but it might be wise
to sound a note of warning. It is a very easy thing to drop
sports after leaving High School and sink into a state of athletic
idleness. This condition of sloth is harmful both to the stu-i
dent and to the University. After one or two turnouts, the
Freshman will be eagerly looking forward to the practices, I
and moreover will soon become aware that the sport he has
chosen is a most satisfying part of his University life. |
There are a few Freshmen who are timid about donning
strip for the first time. They suffer from the common fallacy j
that "not all can make the team." There are many sports to
choose from, and in some, such as Canadian and English Rugby,
Basketball and Soccer, there are three and even four teams
entered in the various leagues. There is plenty of room for
In past years the Blue and Gold teams have always been
to the fore and have earned for themselves a foremost place
in sports because of their high standard of performance and
their display of real sportsmanship. We know that the class
of '37 will help to keep Varsity on top, and uphold the traditions of their Alma Mater.

With the return of most of last year's team and the advent
of a new coach, Bob Dixon, the Varsity Track Club, is assured
of a banner year.
Dixon, former Varsity star, was a member of the record
smashing relay team which consisted of Dixon, Dave Hendry,
Wally Scott and Percy Williams. He has had considerable experience as a coach and at Wednesday's turnout put the club
through a stiffworkout.
Harold Wright, sprint ace and
member of Canada's Olympic Team,

The rest of the spring team are back,
including Max Stewart, Don McTavish and Bobby Gaul. Joe Roberts
former member of Victoria track
team, Is attending the University this
year and Is turning out for track.
In the middle distances, John

a whole new slate of officers. Those
elected were: President, Ernie Costain, replacing Otie Munday; vice-
president, Ted Dune, replacing Millar McGill; business manager, Bill
Wolfe, replacing Laurie Todd; junior
manager, Don Atwater. The secretary, Jack Balcombe, was elected in

The Track Club has quite an ambitious program lined up for this
year. On November the 3rd or 10th
they will compete at Seattle against
the University of Washington Freshmen. On October Uth the annual
Varsity Frosh mut wiU take place.
Sometime ln October the club hopu

the Arts 20 road race hu not bun

be hut to the B. C. Track and Field
Association for an open meet sometime this year.
During the summer several of the
club members kept in condition by
competing in trade and field meets
around Vancouver. Don. McTavish,
sprinter, competed in five meets and
did more running than anybody else.

himself with glory by running 2nd

With many of laat year's Burrard
League championship squad turning
out again, and with a good number
of promising newcomers reporting
for the first practices, Varsity's Senior "A" basketbaU prospects appear
u bright u for mme season.
Leading the squad into action will
be Bob "Tony" Osborne, hero of
the 1931 Championship squad, and
last year's captain. Turning out
with him from last Mason's quintette are Laurie Nicholson, veteran
center, Jimmy Bardsley, dynamic
forward, hard-checking Dick Wright
and Tommy Mansfield, guards. The
famous Bardsley • Mattison - Wright
combination is broken up completely
through the failure of Rann Matthison and Ken Wright to return to
Varsity. Another absentee who will
be udly missed is "Pi" Campbell,
whou play hu featured Varsity
teams for the last three seasons. "Pi"
graduated last spring, and hu returned to his teaching, while Matthison and "Hooker" Wright have
signed with the Adanacs, and will
probably be opposing their old teammates this whiter.
Another former Varsity Senior "A"
player la turning out again in the
person of "Horses" Douglas, who fell
victim to Madame EligtbUity lut
Christmu. Along with him is Doug
McCrimmon, a senior player two
season's ago.
The scrappy Senior B squad of last
year has produced four candidates
for the senior outfit. With the exception of Pringle, lanky center, they
are all small men as basketball players go, but Bob McDonald, "Biff"
McLeod and Howie Sutton showed
last year that it is not size alone
that makes basketball stars. All
four are strong candidates for the vacancies open.
Among four promising Freshmen,
three are former members of the Ex-
King George squad, runners up for
the G.V.A.A. title this spring. The
fourth, McKee, is new to Vancouver
basketball fans, as he hails from
Coutenay, the home town of Sutton.
Henderson, of the former Green and
Blacks outfit, comu to Varsity with
a reputation to live up to, u he is
a brother ot Arnold Henderson, a
power In Varaity basketball for many
years. Along with Willoughby and
Frank Hay, he puts up a fast game,
and theu four may easily be uen
in a Senior "A" uniform when the
uuon opens.
Gordon AUen, who guided lut
year's squad to the Mainland Championship, will again be in charge of
the squad.
