Only Five Thousand WASHINGTON Stanford Debaters Coming Monday
In Union Fund
Students Lax
To date, only five thousand dollars
has been raised in the Union Building
Campaign, it was announced yesterday. This figure includes a careful
estimate of the amount from Caution
Money Waivers signed last Tuesday.
Jay Oould expressed a strong opinion on the subject:
"When only about three hundred
lists have been turned in from a registration of nearly two thousand, it
does not speak much for student
spirit. Nearly everybody on this
campus has the ability to raise their
quota. They have not pulled themselves out of the lassitude into which
the average student has fallen."
Council is at present discussing the
campaign, and intends to make another effort to arouse the student
In the meantime, campus organizations ara doing their bit to raise
money. Noon hour dances, a carnival, and a debate are on the program
for the coming week.
Tuesday, seventy-five percent of
the Arts students signed away their
caution money for the Fund, The
Freshman class headed the list in the
giving spirit, with seventy-nine per
cent signatures. Next were the sophomores, with sevnty-five percent, followed by the juniors and seniors with
seventy-three and sixty-nine percent,
respectively. It is estimated that
these waivers will bring more than
four thousand dollars into the Fund.
With respect to the waiver question,
Alan Morley stated: "It seems that
the Artsmen are quite willing to help
raise money for the Union Funding
—that is, if they do not have to do
any work."
Mr. Morley also gave figures on the
numbers of lists turned In.
It seems that the seniors ate heading the parade as far as lisU are concerned. Recovering from their slump
they have turned in the giard total
of 18 percent of their class. This is
a better percentage figure than tint
of the other years, because of thc
small registration in the final year.
But greater numbers have been turned
in from thc lower years.

On Tuesday
Livestock, hill-billy music and produce cluttered up the Auditorium
stage Tuesday noon, when the Faculty of Agriculture staged their annual dramatic and recreational opus,
the Aggie Stampede. Bronco bucking and milking contests called forth
much quiet humour and subtle wit,
and the fetching music of the Cariboo
Cowboys gave tone to the performance.
An ingenious if synthetic bronco,
in the shape of a saddled oil-drum
slung on ropes, tossed Aggies, Arts-
men and Sciencemen alike ; bout tha
stage under the persuasive urging of
offstage "buck" operators. The milking contest—draining a baby's bottle
fitted with nipple—was a delightful
affair, calling forth great displays of
humor from the audience. "What a
bunch of suckers.' some raucous spectator commented.
The appearance of several ducks,
some tens, and a small Dig added
greately to the informality of the occasion. Credit is due to the fowl for
the smoothness of their performance,
and for tho fortitude with which they
bore manhandling and strangulation
imposed  on  them  hy  their  sponsors.
Music hy the Cariboo Cowboys furnished the best entertainment of the
clay. Way-down-East and cowboy
numbers wore presented wtih great
verve and finesse—the effects gained
by a new steel-electric guitar fitted
with a loudspeaker being especially
Th1! use of eggs by the entertainment committee, even if they were
empty, was deplored by the audience.
"There aren't five pilots in Canada
trained to fly high speed, radio-controlled planes such as those in use on
American airways," Major D. R. Mac-
waren, Pacific Manner of Canadian
Airways Limited and famous war ace,
told the large audience of students
who gathered to hear him in Arts
100 Wednesday noon.
"With more than 70 percent of the
area of Canada relying upon planes
for communication with the outer
world, there are bound to be many
opportunities in aviation Cor young
men, but the standard of training is
rapidly rising, and future pilots will
require at least one year university
training," Major MacLaren stated.
The lecture was illustrated with
slides loaned by Canadian Airways,
showing company planes at work
throughout Canada, picking up mail
from ships at sea on the Atlantic
coast, surveying for power sites in
Eastern Canada, patrolling for forest
fires and carrying freight into Northern outposts, and engaged in fisheries patrol work on the B.C. coast.
One of the more novel duties of
Canadian airmen is the "seeding" of
Northern lakes with baby fish, which
are dropped from the planes in flight.
"They seem to enjoy the breath of
air,"  Major MacLaren said.
More than 165 sick or injured persons were carried to medical attention in Canadian Airways planes during 1935, the speaker said. Bishop
Anderson of the Arctic regions also
appreciates the possibilities of aviation, and now covers, in the brief
summer months, fiv« times the area
he used to cover travelling on foot
all year round.
The Hudson's Bay Company prefers
to transport furs by air rather than
by dog team and canoe, because of
lower insurance rates on the precious
The best freight carrying planes
are the all-metal Fokkers, which can
carry two Ford cars at once. On one
occasion a plane rescued a snowbound surveyor and his eleven horses
and equipment.
More than three hundred students
heard Major MacLaren's lecture with
great interest, and registered their
approval at the close of the lecture
with   record-breaking   applause.
By a two to one vote, two co-ed
debaters from the University of Washington successfully outspoke U.B.C.
debaters on Tuesday night when a
house vote of the Parliamentary Forum rejected the motion, 'Resolved
that this house is in favor of a rigid
censorship of motion pictures."
Debating for U.B.C. were Davie
Fulton and Ludlow Beamish, opposed
by Miss Barbara Jones, and Miss Evelyn La Motte from Seattle. Speaker
for the evening was Prof. C. W. Topping, in the absence of Prof. J. Friend
Speaking first, Ludlow Beamish
stated: "There is only one reason why
producers make moving pictures.
I That is to make money. They are not
interested in uplifting the cultural
level of American people.
"Pictures are the most influential
teaching medium we have. And yet,
because they are more or less untrammelled, they promote prejudice,
both personal and national.
"In addition, they are historically
inaccurate. I can not understand why
George Arliss should portray Rothschild as a benevolent patriot, when
as a matter of fact he was nothing of
the sort, Also he distorted the character of Richelieu in a very great degree.
"There is a capital investment of
two billion dollars in moving pictures.
And we gat so little benefit from all
He was followed by Miss Barbara
Jones for the negative.
"Ther are many excellent films
being produced. It seems that he
mentioned only those films which
helped his case a little bit.
"I would like to enumerate three
reasons why censorship is not feasible. Our present censor board is
maintained by the industry. If a rigid board as advocated by tho affirmative were set up, there would be a
huge expense.
"Second, you cannot legislate morals. They are something over which
resolutions have no control. Censorship will aways be evaded. During
prohibition, the law was repeatedly

Large Audience
Hears Quartette
A large student audience was attracted to the Symphony Quartet recital Wednesday afternoon. The program included representative quartets
of Haydn and Dvorak, and a brace of
melodious pieces by Handel, Borodine, Raff.
The four artists—Jean de Rimano-
czy, Harold Hogue, Allard de Ridder,
Maurice Miles — gave a thoroughly
competent performance. Their readings were penetrating and authoritative; and for concerted performance,
the group realized its fullest possibil-
ties, which is saying much.
Mr. de Rimanoczy is, I think, ideally suited to chamber music performance. His characteristic polished
style, his integrity, his poise, stand
him in even better stead as first violinist than as a soloist.
Opening the recital was a Haydn
quartet (No. 57 in G), rendered with
grace and the sure, light touch that
it demands. The Dvorak work which
followed (Op. 51 in E flat), a composition of many moods, was played
with interpretative insight. The difficulties  of  the  final   movement,   a

Radio Debate On
$ 30,000
In the radio debate on Friday between U.B.C. and University of Saskatchewan, the U.B.C. debaters, Wilson McDuffee and Horace West, will
take the negative of the subject: "Resolved, that the enlargement, of the
powers of the provincial government
is in the best interest of Canada."
Tho debate can be heard over CRCV
from 6 till 6:30, Pacific Standard Time.
This is the second of a series of Western Canada debates, the winner of
the series to debate against Ihe East.
The leaders are given seven minutes each, the second speakers, six
minutes, while the affirmati 'e is allowed a one and a half minute rebuttal. The decision will be by a majority vote of three judges in Winnipeg. "The subject of the debate,"
said Wilson McDuffee, "is a pertinent
problem at the present time, and the
decision will be a particularly interesting one."
McDuffee, leader of the negative, is
a prominent member of the Parliamentary Forum, and has participated
in several inter-university debates.
Horace West, though he has not debated in the Forum, has had wide experience in public speaking and debating.
The next practice of the Varsity
Band will be in the Metropolitan Hall
above the Metropolitan store on Hastings street opposite the Daily Province office. The practice will be from
1*2 to 1:30.

Towards the end of February, every
year, the Green Room, daily haunt of
local Thespians, gradually asumes an
atmosphere of feverish activity. Already the miniature stage has been
set up. and director Dorothy Somerset with members of the executive
and stage crew may be observed any
noon manipulating foot-high flats and
"handkerchief curtains while trying
to combine artistic effect .vith simplicity and practicality in the stage
Over by the window Audrey Phillips may be noticed trying on various
shapes and sizes of hoop skirts with
several skeptical males nearby offering some rather acid criticism. Across
the room by the big desk Len Nicholls
and his cohorts are struggling amidst
an overwhelming welter of tickets,
money, and receipts, while on the
sofa Hazel Merton impressing several freshettes with the difficulties of
obtaining  proper  properties.
The various committees in charge
of arrangements for the forthcoming
production of "She Stoops to Conquer" are settling down into a steady
drive which will continue unbroken
until the curtain falls on the last
performance. Leslie Allen (Business,
Advertising, Publicity) is cooperating
fully with Amy Seed fPrograms),
Frances Wright (Costumes), Hazel
Merton (Properties*, and Mary Moxon (Makeup) in subduing the myriad
of seemingly insoluble details which
never fail to arise at this time.
The costumes of this year'? offering
will be, if present indications are correct, even more strikingly effective in
colour contrast than those of "Hedda
Gabler," which many who saw that
play  last year will  remember.
John Davidson, stage manager, who
has been ill with the mumps for the
past couple of weeks, will return on
Monday to find his faithful crew
busily engaged in building special
flats for constructing "screens.'' This
"abbreviated scenery" will be used
in conjunction with the velours. No
ceilngs will be used for the sets, and
in this way the lighting effects —
handled by Pat Larsen — will have
freer play, and will be rendered
doubly effective by the use of the
curtains in place of the conventional
The combined effect of this .seeming confusion will be exhibited before
the students and public the last week
of March.
McKillop, DePoe To
Debate for U.B.C.
"Resolved, that the British system
of Parliamentary Government is superior to the American system of judicial control" is the subject upon which
Lex McKillop and Norman DePoe will
debate a team from Stanford University on Monday in the Auditorium.
The debate will take place during
the noon hour, and a charge of ten
cents will be made. All proceeds will
be donated to the Brock Memorial
The Parliamen' y Forum has slated the debate -or noon in order to
ensure a good turnout of students,
for, as Prof. Day stated:
"The Stanford team will be an excellent one. We have never had a
poor team from there yet."
The two U.B.C. men are both experienced debaters, although this is
DePoe's first experience in the intercollegiate field.
McKillop, a graduate who has returned to take the course in education participated in an Inter-collegiate
debate last fall. He has been an active member of the Parliamentary
Forum during this session.
DePoe may be remembered as one
of the Publications team in the noon
hour debate in November when the
Press vs. Pulpit question was debated.
He has been debating since high
school days.
It is expected that the topic will
give rise to an interesting end fiery
debate. Since the recent decisions of
the American Supreme Court regarding "New Deal" legislation, the subject has become one of those foremost
in the public mind,
Judges will be Professors H. F.
Angus, H. T. Logan, and W. N. Sage.
Professor J. F. Day stated: "These
judges have been chosen with great
care. Prof. Angus has the legal background, and Prof. Sage the historical
training to bring expert judgment to
bear on the debate. All three have
Oxford training, where debating is
an art, and are thus the more qualified to judge."
The Parliamentary Forum hopes to
be able to add a good sum to the
Union Building Fund as a lesult of
this debate, which has by now become an annual event for both U.B.C.
and Stanford.
'Pirates' Dress

"The Pirates of Penzance,'' the
Musical Society's light opera, is to
resemble as closely as possible the
original production," said C. Haydn,
Williams, the conductor, on Wednesday. "The scenery is an exact replica
of the original scenery, as produced
by D'Oyle Carte; and the musical
score is completely the same as the
original and just as Sullivan wrote
"The members of the orchestra have
worked very, very hard," he said,
"and there are some very good players on the campus, so we have been
able to save on the budget, since we
do not have to bring in professionals."
He added that there are ten violins,
a 'cello, abass, a flute, an oboe, a
bassoon, a trumpet, two trombones
and tympani in the orchestra. The
original score calls for only a horn,
two violas and one 'cello aver this,
and so the original music can be
Living up to the old adage, "clothes
make the pirate," the costumes, supervised by Barbara Beney, will be
full of colour, and should add quite
a  littlo to the effect, of the play.

Two distasteful examples of coarseness
have forced themselves upon us the last few
On Wednesday morning three Third Year
Sciencemen put Butyric Acid, purchased in
town previously, on the Arts, Science and
Cafeteria radiators shortly before 9 a.m. The
result was a disgusting smell that lingered for
This sample of practical joking is puerile
and revolting; the wonder is that any youth
with the mentality necessary for college work
should stoop to it. We hope that SMUS will
take to disciplining these pests who reflect so
unworthily on Science's name.
The other exhibition of coarseness occurred
at the Aggie Pep Meeting. Here the chief
humor seemed to be derived from the pulling
of livestock about the stage and the throwing
of it into the audience. This is decidedly
crude, and by many it was considered to be
We do not object to lapses of conventional
morality, no indeed. But this coarse-grained
behavior is another matter.   It is uncivilized.
Recently another instance of the 'chiselling" malady that has swept this generation
has shown itself on the campus, It is really just
another occurence of the old pastime of "crashing" dances.
But this time, the functions receiving the
attendance of the bright young people are
those designed to raise money for the Union
And, surprisingly enough, the "crashers"
are in many cases members of two reputedly
moneyed groups.
These groups have done little or nothing to
date for the fund—and they even refuse it the
ten cents admission to a noon hour dance.
We draw no conclusions, point no morals
—but there is only one opinion about those
who "chisel" their own University.
A rather delightful faux past was reported
to us anent the Washington vs. Varsity debate
on film censorship, One gentleman arose with
the flame of virtue shining in his eyes, and delivered an impassioned harrangue about the
immorality of Hollywood and its dastardly
contempt of sweetness and light; which we
would like to reprint for your editfication, only
we fear it would never pass the Senior Editor's blue pencil. It was like that.
The Ubyssey regrets that its remarks in
Tuesday's editorial concerning Council's refusal to sponsor the quartet recital were inaccurate. The news-source proved to be perjured.

How well I remember when I had mumps
at the sensible age of four! We had them en

it was my mother who had to be sent away to

"Twenty-five per cent, of the college seniors knew less than half of 5700 college sophomores did

The natural question arising seems to be,

difficulties and have perfect production. Today, due to technical difficulties, the first three announcements
didn't come over, and then tne music
quit, but it won't happen again."
In an interview on Monday Dick

explained that it was done by "an
electrical pick-up system leant to us
by the Murray Phonographic Supplies." The recordings were leant by
CKMO. "We will run it in the Caf at

of a debate)" explained Dirk. We

•"It's A Girl!"
Says Prof.
"Gentlemen, I—I—I'm sorry, I just
can't carry on, forgive me, please."
With this stuttering apology, Professor J. Friend Day took his coat and
left his Ec. 2 lecture at 9:15 yesterday
morning. The reason? The professor now has a little girl, as well as
"my son" to be proud of!
For similar reasons, Mr. Day
missed the Parliamentary Forum for
the first time in years. Students in
Mr. Day's classes, enjoying a little
holiday, arc wishing him the best of
luck. It is reported that he is doing
very well and expects to be able to
meet his classes to-day.

U.B.C. Students Act
In French Plays
French students from the University played leading parts in the presentation of scenes from Moliere's
plays, staged by L'Alliance Francalse
at the Georgian Club on Monday evening. Marianne Cecil, Deborah Aish,
Alan Walsh, James Beverldge, and
Don Munro were those taking part.
Resumes of each play presented
were given by Dr. Dorothy Dallas,
Dr, Wessie Tipping, Madame Barry
and Madame Darlington. Seventeenth
century music by Lulll, some of it
written for original performances of
Moliere's "Bourgeois Gentilhomme,"
was rendered by Club members, including Arthur MacLeod of the U.B.
C. Musical Society.
The program was arranged by Miss

Note: One of our readers (Oh, all
right, our reader, then) became alarmed at the plight of Oscar, and set
himself to extricate the daredevil reporter.
Mutiny on the Bounty
Scribblewell gazed horror stricken
at the rising tide before him which
bore on its bosom the undulating
forms of the serpents.
Feverishly, he tore from his back
the hiking knapsack which he always
wore. Frantically, he drew from it a
pair of skis. He let them fall with
a groan of despair. Hurriedly, he
searched, discarding article after article in his haste. Finally, his searching fingers grasped a can of condensed milk. Sobbing at the sacrifice,
he wrenched it open, and poured its
contents into tbe now dangerously
high pool.
At once the snakes avidly lapped
up the liquid—guaranteed not to contain more than 3.73 percent butter-
fat. Fighting greedily to secure the
croam, they struggled.
Gradually their horrid forms dis-
tented, and slowly but surely the
water receded. Then, one by one, the
reptiles came to their end. Some
burst, some choked, some became so
full they sank and drowned, while
others nerished from cramps caused
by going in swimming too early after
eating. tOhers met death from acute
indigestion, since there was no bicarbonate of soda within miles.
Scribblewell wiped his brow with
relief. Then fresh terror burst upon
him. There glaring through a trapdoor was the dread visage of Chang
Suey, eyes gleaming, and face distorted with rage.
"Curses," 'he muttered. "But I have
yet another mortgage up my sleeve.
You shall taste of the Ling-chl—the
fearsome death of a thousand deaths."
Scribblewell shuddered. And still
those silky tones continued.
"But first, my little one," purred
the scienceman fiend, and be pressed
a button.
A swirl of gas filled the chamber,
and Oscar reeled back, his brain stupefied by the visions which seemed to
be conjured up by the infernal vapors.
Fainting he dropped to the floor,
the eyes of Chang Suey seeming a
mighty compelling force beating upon
his brain and the laughter of that
arch-field ringing in his ears.
Half unconscious, h\} felt himself
lifted, carried out . . .
(How about another reader getting
Oscar out of this one? The idea being to get him into as tight a position
a.s possible, for the next writer. Address all instalments to the Muck Editor, "Ubyssey").

Censorship Motion
(Continued from Page 1)
the fundamental problem.   It is not
enough to censor the films.   People
will remain the same.
Davie Fulton, speaking for thc affirmative devoted much of his time
to the moral aspect of the question.
"There ia a dangerous appeal to
low tendencies in many films. There
are some people who cannot control
their emotions. And these are affected in a very large degree by immoral pictures.
"Control of films is a necessity.
Censorship grew up from the recognition of that fact.
"If we do not establish 3ome kind
of control, there will never be ny
incentive to make better films.
The negative argument was closed
by Miss Evelyn La Motte, who presented an alternative plan.
"Education is the first need. One
of the most favored courses at the
U. of W. is Liberal Arts, which is an
introduction to the appreciation of
music, painting, sculpture and literature. Similar coruses could be established in photoplay appreciation.
"One such experiment was tried.
Discussion groups were instituted in
several grade and high schools. And
it was found that after a period there
were large increases in the number
of children who knew and appreciated good pictures.
The debate was then thrown open
to the floor of the house. After several speakers, a five minute rebuttal
was taken by Davie Fulton.
When a vote was taken, a large
majority was in favor of the negative.

To the strains of Mart Kenney and

last evening in the Crystal Ballroom
of the Hotel Vancouver.
Following the Leap Year idea, the
girls called for the men, arranged for
their dances, fed them after the
dance as no refreshments were served
there and finally deposited them safely on their doorsteps. In order to
make as much money as possible for
the Union Building Fund, the committee decided to do away with supper, programs and complimentarles,
A great scramble ensued during the
evening when the men demanded one
of the multi-colored balloons which
decorated the ceiling and which were
let down during the usual supper intermission.
It is understood that, although the
evening was chilly none of the men
caught colds as the girls carefully
wrapped them ta blankets.
Mrs. Lucas Bans
More Pubsters
When six pubsters are lent home
for having mumps, the rest of the
staff are willing to dismiss the calamity as mere Kismet, but when seven more are sent home for not having mumps, things begin to look a
bit grim. Especially with exams a
mere six weeks away.
Tuesday afternoon a scant handful
of "immunes" bade farewell to another group of potential plague victims, who were ordered home for
two weeks as a preventive measure
to check U.B.C.'s growing epidemic
of mumps. The bad news crrlved at
noon Tuesday in the form of eight
neat letters from the "angel in white"
v/ho dwells in the regions above the
notorious pub. Eight pubsters paused
between munches of sandwiches to
peruse the solemn looking documents,
and then chaos broke loose. Several
of the doomed individuals claimed to
have had mumps "unofficially," and
one even offered to sign an affidavit,
but Mrs. Lucas was adamant, insisting upon seeing a Doctor's certificate
before she would relent.
Frequenters of the pub who have
not had mumps are warned that they
are exposing themselves to the disease
whenever they enter the plague-
stricken area, and may be ordered
home whether they contract the disease or not. Meanwhile a forlorn
remnant of the once noisy throng are
gallantly carrying on, each trying to
do the work of seven or eight other
people (who probably never did any
work anyhow), and shooing away
more possible victims from the contaminated territory.
Coed Debaters
Are Fascinated
On the whole, the two co-ed debaters from Washington are favorably
impressed with our campus, nnd think
the U.B.C. brand of men "just as nice
as our own." "The men hf.ve such
a fascinating English accent,' said Evelyn La Motte. "In the debate yesterday I was too busy listening to
Davie Fulton's accent to understand
anything he said."
"The Kaf coffee is abominable," declared Barbara Jones, "but I certainly
like the way Vancouver people
ciance." Questioned on how she liked
the Ubyssey, she admitted that when
she could not read the old English
headline, she went no further.
Evelyn believes that possibilities of
co-ed debating on this campus are
very good, though a good deal of
backing and support would be necessary. "We thoroughly enjoyed beat-
inn the Vancouver men," :-he said.
"It's the first decision debate we've
had in three years." Appaiently they
just don't debate that way in Washington.
The girls were very intoiested in
the Parliamentary Forum, but did
not think it compared favorably with
the debating club in Washington
which is a closed organization, membership being by vote only. They felt,
too, that the practice of allowing
people to speak their minds from the
floor tended to slow up a debate considerably.
In Washington co-eds have a much
greater chance for debating than
here. They have an organization of
their own, with a membership as
large as that of the men and a similar grant from  council.

Meet Washington Tank
Stars Saturday Noon
Varsity Will Send Strong Team
As a climax to a successful series of local meets, the University of B. C. swimming team travels to Seattle on Saturday
to meet the University of Washington in a dual meet. Although
Varsity has taken on the Huskies several times before, never in
the past have they been rated as such close contenders for Pacific Northwest Intercollegiate honors as they are this year.
U. B. C. recently defeated a strong
Magee High School team by a score
of 63-21, and earlier in the year took
a meet with Vancouver Normal School
by a similar wide margin.
Washington has also won some impressive victories, one at the expense
of the University of Idaho by a scoie
of 61-23, and another from Washington
State College by a score of 52-32.
These wins will make Washington a
much feared team when they meet
University of Oregon early in May.
U.B.C. will send down a very powerful team on the roster of which
will be such outstanding swimmers
as Dick Cline, Angelo Provenzano,
Phil Margetts, Archie Byers, Stan
Roberts, Ian Smellie and Jim Hinton.
Cline and Margetts are two of the
outstanding sprinters in Vancouver
and will enter the 50 yards and 100
yards freestyle. Hinton is University's
100 yard breaststroke champion and
will enter the 100 yard breaststroke in
Seattle. Roberts and Smellie and U.-
B. C.s great back-strokers, Roberts being a Canadian record-holder, and
both men will compete in the 150
yards backstroke and 50 yards backstroke. Provenzano and Byers are Var-
sitys main hopes in the middle distance events. Byers will probably enter the 100 yards freestyle and the
440 yards freestyle, while Provenzano
concentrates on the 220 yards freestyle.
The events for the meet will be:
1. 440 yards freestyle relay.
2. 100 yards breaststroke.
3. 150 yards backstroke.
4. 50 yards freestyle.
5. 440 yards freestyle,
6. 100 yards freestyle.
7. 50 yards backstroke.
8. 220 yards freestyle.
9. 300 yards medley relay.
Coach Jack Reid of the Crystal Pool
will accompany his swimmers to the
Sound City to see that everything goes
well. Jack says: "Although we are
coming up against a very strong team,
I think we can beat them by judicious
handling of our swimmers. We are
dark horses as far as Washington is
concerned, so we have the advantage
of them in knowing the strength of
their  swimmers.
If Varsity beats the Huskies, the
swimming team will probablly travel
to Portland later in the year to compete in the Pacific Northwest Inter-
collegiate championships against Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Washington
State, and Oregon State. Of these
teams Oregon is easily the outstanding team, with its recent victories over
San Jose, California and Stanford.
Many outstanding swimmers of the
coast including Jim Hurd and Jim
Reed of Oregon, Jack Medica and
George Personetti of Washington, and
Angelo Provenzano, Stan Roberts and
Archie Byers of U. B. C. are planning
to take part in these championships
if they gain victory in Seattle on Saturday.

The Miller Cup final between Varsity and the Rowing
Club is practically certain to be played next week, and this
game will give the Thunderbirds a chance to regain their winning form of last December for the big game against Victoria
Rep which will follow a week later. In addition the postponement will give Victoria another two weeks in which to forget
how to play rugby and get over the effects of having played together during the Christmas Holidays.
Because of the long layoff caused

be followed by the McKechnie Cup
final against Victoria the following
week. After that the final for the
Tisdall Cup will have to be played,
should Varsity qualify for that game.
Although the final game of the
season is still in the air, it is almost
certain to take place and should prove
to be one of the most interesting of
the season. It is to be against a team
that is coming up from the University of Stanford and will be for the

Hockey excitement around the Arena will tonight switch
from the professional to the amateur variety as the game between the University of Washington Huskies and the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds occupies the sports pedestal.
The Huskies are all enthusiastic over the good showing
they made against the Trojans from U. S. C. recently and intend to take the present three-game series in short order, and
keep the Northwest Intercollgiate Hockey Championship where
it at present rests. The U. W. team has already won one game in

The Rowing Club this year has made the greatest advancement since its inception about 12 years ago. This year

ough men to set up more than one
crew. There have been on the average about 50 men turning out on rowing days. The keenness that these men
have shown can partially be attributed to the excellent executive
officers who have worked unstint-
ingly for the benefit of the club. Council has signified their support of the
organization on the campus by giving
them a sufficienty higher cut this
year for them to carry on their activities.
The men turning out have shown
their enthusiasm by getting out and
making two complete sets of riggers
besides reconditioning the almost useless eights.
The senior eight are training hard
every morning from 7 to 8 o'clock on
Coal Harbor. Working out under coach
Brown the boys are all developing a
strong clean style which will ensure a
avorable showing by the team on their
southern invasion. Coach Brown has
also been assisted in his training by
John Muter, who is at the coast for a
short time and took part in the Olympic trails a few years ago,

The Varsity team has been winning
steadily lately and hope to go to town
in a big way this time. If Taylor,

Skiers At Mt Baker
The Varsity skiers will hold a meet
with the College of Puget Sound and
University of Washington at Mt. Baker next week-end. There will be a
6-mile Cross Country race on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday morning

the afternoon the Slalom. The team
making the trip is Bob Taylor, Bill
Killam, Bill Arbuckle, Mickey Pogue.
Stan Bruce, Allan Day-Smith and
Jimmy Orr.
