Frosh Fest
Toques    Doffed   As
Verdants Welcomed
Into Alma Mater
Toques off! And three rousing
cheers for the class of '37. Freshman
and freshette alike saw the end of
that grind known as the initiation
period around ten o'clock Friday
night, when they formally gave high-
school days the gate and entered the
university as student body members.
Ghouls and jinxes of Friday the
Thirteenth had no effect as freshette
paired with freshman to pass through
two symbolic arches, masterpieces
created by the Pep Club.
The first was painted in the colors
of the local high schools and was inscribed "High School - Exit."
The second, much larger was painted blue and gold in the U.B.C. motif
and labeUed "U.B.C. - Entrance."
Dr. and Mrs. Shrum, Dean and
Mrs. Brock, Dean and Mrs. Clement,
Dr. and Mrs. Ure, and that official
pair, Eleanor Walker and Mark Col-
Una, ackr wkdged the Introduction
of MUt Owen as the initiates filed
past to resume dancing again to the
infectious strains of Reynold Will-
lams and his Ten Ambassadors.
"The biggest stampede West of
Calgary" had Uttle difficulty In living
up to its reputation. Hundreds of upperclassmen swarmed through the
Denman haU portals to exchange
kicked ankles and bruised elbows
with the verdant ones. And as usual
a great number of high school belles
were present, to add to the already
bounteous attractions of an entirely
enjoyable evening.
Solo Dancer$r Score
At Local Theatre
Michio Ito and his group of solo
dancers hold a capacity audience
spellbound the length of a varied program Saturday at thc Vancouver
The performance was memorable
for its sincere artistry. No sensational
effects or spectacular costumes were
permitted which might deflect emphasis from the dancing itself, which
was a remarkable imaginative interpretation of the music.
The music was largely modern, by
Ravel, Debussy, Scott and Alblncz.
and whether Ito gave a colorful gesticulating "Impression of a Chinese
Actor," or glided languidly across
the stage to the 'Tango" of Alblncz,
whether the dancers twisted in
strange ecstacy to "Clair de la Lune"
or danced as portrayed on ancient
vase paintings in "Greek," the spirit
and interpretation   seemed   modern.
Which number was the most outstanding Is almost Impossible to
judge. Warren Crosby gave a fascinating picture of religious frenzy
In "Blanche Nuit." Ito was impelled
to encore the "Tango" mentioned
above, and also "Pizzicato" by De-
libes, in which he performed before
an arc lamp, casting a giant, grotesque shadow behind him.
Two Ughter numbers were acclaimed. "Comlca" was a portrayal
of an awkward rustic, conscious of
a wooer's gaze, whUe an "Arabesque"
by Debussy provided material for an
elfin interlude, complete with big,
bad goblin.
The background consisted of a long
screen, on which light was played
from each wing, producing alterna-"
ting bars of color,—J. B. C.

Japan's Problem
Has Two Sources
Says Prof. Angus
''Responsibility for Peace or War
on the Pacific" was explained by
Professor H. F. Angus on'Saturday
night at the opening meeting of the
Vancouver Institute to an audience
which flUed the auditorium.
His address was similar to that he
gave last week to the International
Relations Club. His conclusion was
that the whole world is responsible.
The central fact of the Pacific today, he said, is the Japanese population problem. There is no land for
this new generation to work. Other
countries will not accept them as
Population Surplus
The surplus must therefore be absorbed into industry. But Japan cannot industrialize herself without buying foreign raw materials, to pay for
which she must sell goods or services in return.
But she has no safe markets in
which to sell. She is faced with boycotts and tariffs. From very great
areas her exports are excluded; from
others they are likely to be excluded.
It may not happen, but her experience has been discouraging.
"Put yourself,'' said Mr. Angus, "in
the position of Japan's statesmen.
They see other countries with foreign territories. They say, 'Why
shouldn't we have them too?' But
anti-war treaties prevent them, and
there is not much unclaimed land
left in the world.
"Then the statesmen might consider
asking the other countries to allov
the Japanese people to immigrate, or
they might request that tariffs be
lowered. These perhaps are reasonable proposals. But the answer
would certainly be '?%>.'
"So next the statesmen consider
what treaty rights Japan has. They
have some in Manchuria. They feel
that their interests are threatened
there. They defend themselves, lt
might have been better to trust to
the good will of the world, but that
looked a dubious course.
A Difficult Position
"This action of Japan has placed
other countries in a difficult portion. To disapprove without interfering is unfair to China. To Interfere, say by a boycott, is to encourage war, not submission, a war of

Noted Japanese
Scholar Succumbs
The death occurred on Sunday
night, at Victoria, of Dr. Inazo Nitobe, well-known Japanese statesman.
Dr. Nitobe will be remembered on
this campus, for his lecture last
spring  on  conditions  in  Manchuria.
He had recently returned from
Banff, where he had been a delegate
at the Pacific Relations Conference,
but had been ill at Victoria for some
He was a member of the Japanese
House of Peers, and was always a
staunch advocate of the League of
Nations and international co-operation.
A graduate of Johns Hopkins University, and married to an American
wife, Dr. Nitobe had imbibed deeply
of western culture, but was at the
same time a loyal and honest exponent of Japanese life and Ideals.
Ceremony Drowned
In Dismal Drizzle
"The purpose of the Cairn Ceremony is to convey to students entering thc University of British Columbia for the first time some idea of
the history of the Institution and to
commemorate the self-sacrifice and
initiative of those who took part in
th_ campaign over a decade ago to
transfer the University site from
Fairview to Point Grey," declared
Mark Collins, president of the A.M.
S., at the traditional Cairn Ceremony
last Friday morning.
To the accompaniment of the rain
pelting on the roof of the bus-stand
which sheltered the assembled crowd
jof ten freshmen, he traced the history of the University from the time
of its inception till when it assumed
its important position in the scheme
of things in British Columbia. He
noted the significant dates; the affiliation of Vancouver High School
with McGill In 1899, the formal opening of the University in 1915 in the
temporary Fairview housing, and in
1926 the erection of the cairn on the
Mall. In concluding he pointed out
the consequence of the cairn, as a
monument to the exodus from tiie
"shacks in Fairview" and as the first
tradition of the University.
Eleanor Walker, president of the
W.U.S., also braved the mists of
early morning to address the small
band of devotees. She spoke of the
traditions of the University, mentioning particularly 'the Honor System,
involving the non-compulsory maintenance of discipline; and the esteem
accorded both the Faculty and the
Student Council by the student body.
Continuing, she said that probably
the most unique of the few customs
was that connected with the lily
pond. "Rainy weather," she noted in
closing, "has become established in
the students' minds as one of the
ft fore unnecessary and most moving
traditions of the institution." On this
appropriate closing note the Cairn
Ceremony was concluded.

The French Literary Club production is now definitely under way
with the arrangements completed on
Friday. Rehearsals will begin today,
and all interested are asked to turn
out, whether taking French or not.
Songs for the tryouts are not difficult, and it is planned to learn the
correct language and pronunciation
for each song before attempting the

building and in the quad, notices regarding tryouts and rehearsals.
Dean Dazzles
Dazed Dupe
Winding up their program of services to freshmen, the Varsity Y
brought Reynold Williams and his
Ambassadors to the auditorium stag.
Friday noon in the second pep meeting of the year.
A selection of snappy dance tunes
set student toes tapping. Numbers
played by Williams and his boys included "Let Me Give My Happiness
to You," "Ring Dem Bells," and
"Dinah," and a novel version of "St.
Louis Blues" by the diminutive May
Dames brought 1933 Harlem to U.B.C.
Star of the performance was Sidney Dean; Kiwanls Club entertainer,
who with a pseudo-serious exhibition
of mind-reading convinced one unwary greenster that he didn't know
his own mind. For an encore number Mr. Dean treated student^ to a
comic song of the type that panicked
downy birds of eighteenth century
During the meeting several rather
spiritless renditions of "Mr. Noah"
were hurled from the balcony together with the usual barrage of
half-devoured lunches, this last in
evident defiance of Mr. Lee's warning concerning care of the auditorium.
Frosh To Gather
At Suey Shrine
After two delays the Frosh-Soph
Tug-O'-War Is definitely slated for
today at noon. Freshmen and Sophomores wUl growl menacingly at
each other across the green-sward
behind the bus stand. At a signal
they will brace their heels and give
each other the works.
The Frosh have cleaned up nearly
everything on the campus so far, and
are confident of another victory, but
the Sophs have other plans for them.
Both teams are reported to have
plenty of beef and brawn and It
should prove to be a good pull.

Who has been a prominent member
of the Players' Club, is directing the
Christmas Play "Punch and Go."
Dr. Neal Carter
To Give Address
Dr. Neal Carter, Ph., F.R.G.S., Is
to give an address on Oceanographi-
cal Chemistry, at the first open meeting of the Chemistry Society, at 3:10
Wednesday afternoon, Sc. 300.
It is interesting to note that Dr.
Carter is a former president of the
Society he is addressing to-morrow.
He graduated from this university in
1925 and obtained his M.A.Sc, here
the following year. He secured his
Ph.D. at McGill in 1929, and Succeeded in winning the Foreign Travelling
Fellowship of the National Research
Council. Under this fellowship he
studied with Professor Bergmann in
the Department of Cellulose Chemistry at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institut
in Dresden. He is now a research
chemist at the Pacific Biological Station  at  Nanalmo.
Dr. Carter is one of the most prominent mountaineers of this province.
In recognition of his exploring and
mapping activities in the Garibaldi
area he was in thc 1929 made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical society. During the last two summevs
he has beer engaged in original exploration o,, the headwaters of thc
Lillooet and Toba rivers, ne is one
of the foremost authorities on the
topography of the lower coast region
of British Columbia, and has a remarkable collection of photographs
of B. C. mountain scenery.
Medical Examination
A unique record of our University's
history may be found in the Dr. Burnett museum. It consists of a four
volume scrap book compiled and kept
by Mr. Tansley, more familiarly
known to the students as "Old Bill."
The scrap book begins in 1916, a time
when, due to war conditions, the
young University was having difficulty in continuing to exist. In the
May of that year, however, the first
Congregation was held. A program
of that Congregation is pasted into one
of the first pages of the scrap book.
Underneath is a program of the first
Graduation BaU given in honor of
those first graduates.
A few pages later is the first issue
of "Anon," a monthly magazine dated
December, 1916. This was the first
publication issued by the Student
Body. It was a small magazine but
exceptionally erudite and literary.
Editor-in-Chief Recognised
In another volume there is a picture of a former editor ln chief of
the Ubyssey, A. A. Webster, who has
been elected president of the Teachers' Association. It Is interesting to
know that the talents of Editors in
Chief are sometimes afterwards appreciated.
Here is an informal snapshot of Dr.
Sedgwick's grin taken at Fairview
some ten years ago. Then a letter
from John Grace, one of our best
students now at Cambridge, and a
Approximately forty students have
failed to report to the University
Health Service, for Medical Examination appointments. The attention of
these students is drawn to the following excerpt from the University
Calendar, Page 41, Par. 1:
"In order to promote the physical
welfare of the student body, students
on entering the University are REQUIRED to report immediately to the
University Health Service, and obtain an appointment for their Medical Examination."
Par. 2 — "Rules governing Medical
Examinations: (1) Students must
present themselves for medical examination on the date and at the
time assigned by the University
Health Service. (2) Students failing
to report on the right date or reporting on a wrong date, lost their assignment. (3) Students who do not
conform to the above regulations
will be referred to the University
Health Commitee."

Tuesday, October IT, 1933
Newspapers all over the Dominion are blazoning the juicy details of the notorious hazing
ceremonies at the University of Alberta. After
making all allowances for journalistic exaggeration and the somewhat hysterical appeal of
the prosecuting counsel, the case still remains
a blot on the reputation of the University.
The evidence presented appears somewhat
unbelievable. Nevertheless the stream of unwelcome publicity plainly shows the danger
that lies in strenuous Freshman hazing. There
have been many complaints that the initiation
programme as outlined at this University is a
luke-warm sort of tea-party affair. Seniors
look back with a reminiscent glow at the strenuous days of yore, and moan about the dilettante ideas of the present age.
The fact remains, however, that some students are physically unsuited to stand the
rigors of a violent initiation, and consequently
moderation is most successful in the long run.
The long-delayed general meeting of the
Alma Mater Society has been called for next
Wednesday noon. For the benefit of those
Freshmen who have never attended an Alma
Mater meeting, we would like to say that the
occasion is one for serious discussion of University topics, and not one for levity.
All students are expected to rise as the
Students' Council files down the aisle, and are
expected to remain standing until Council is
seated. Noon-hour pep meeting tactics are absolutely taboo. Lunches are to be eaten in the
proper quarters, not in the auditorium.
The Players Club are making a commendable effort to raise the calibre of their productions. Their selection of Christmas plays, announced to-day, shows that a genuine attempt
is being made to improve the drama on the
It has been quite obvious that in the last
two years the standard of Players' productions
has not been above criticism. One of the chief
reasons for this lay, not in lack of talent, but
in bad judgment displayed in the choice of
An amateur dramatic organization is faced
with the two alternatives of presenting a popular type of play, catering to the public chiefly
on its amusement value, or of attempting to
go 'arty' with the attendant danger of rising
above the heads of the average audience.
The ideal solution would be a play of high
entertainment value, yet possessing distinct
artistic merit.
The last two spring productions have both
been rather signal failures. 'Alice-sit-by-the-
Fire' was a feeble effort to re-embellish one
of the most outmoded of Sir James Barrie's
Edwardian vapidities. The play was neither an
artistic triumph nor a thought provoker. As
entertainment it was distinctly limited in its
The last spring production lacked even the
merit of being written by a distinguished dramatist. As a twopenny thriller, it was doubtless
up to the average of usual stock productions,
but as a contribution to the drama it was a

popular appeal to put their plays across they

Slowy, and as it were tentatively, contributions begin to drift in. Most of them are signed
with pen-names, and almost all are accompanied by a faintly apologetic note. Just why
this should be so remains a mystery; can it
be that we're not quite respectable ?
Anyway, our thanks to those who have
contributed. We're not in that state yet where
we can squander their offerings in one big

A Cone for Peter
Duty done, I whistled Peter out of his copy-
basket.   "Peter," I said, "I hear - - -"
"It's a lie," squealed my little literary ape.
"It's a lie, Bill, I don't care who said so! I
never even touched your lunch."
"Nobody said you did," I soothed him. "You
couldn't have anyway, because I've just eaten
it.   Now what's all this leading up to ?"
Peter climbed to my shoulder and perched
there, tugging gently at my ear. " 'Nickle?"
he coaxed.   "Please, Bill, for a cone?"
So I borrowed him a nickle and sent him
away happy. He came back with his cone
clutched tight in both paws, and offered me a
generous lick.
"Now," I told him, "all that I wanted you
for was to let you know that the French Clubs
are going to put on another performance. Remember last year, Peter? It was about the
time you decided to adopt me."
"Uh-huh," Peter nodded happily. "Very
nice it was, too. There was one song about 'II
y'avait trois enfants.' I was humming it for
hours after."

It is admittedly an extremely difficult task
to find a worth-while play combining artistic
merit and high entertainment value. Nevertheless that is a problem that must be solved,
before the Players' Club present their next
Spring Play. Failure to do so will make their
efforts in vain.

To the members of the Alma Mater
I have investigated the duties of tha
office of Junior Member and feel
that they are not too arduous, and 1
am therefore asking for the support
of the student body ln the coming
election for that ofi.cs.
It Is true that I have not had a
great deal of experience in affairs of
this nature, but the position is primarily meant to train new men for
future positions on council. However, in my freshman year I waa secretary to a committee appointed at
the request of the Students' Council to investigate the methods of
student government employed in
some of the universities of our own
size in Canada and the United States.
Thus while serving on this committee I received some knowledge of the
workings of student government.
The most important duty of a council member is his vote on council,
and in this connection I can assure
you that if elected I will always use
my vote In the way that I think is
most beneficial to the students as
a whole.

Perhaps the most interesting _nd
certainly the most gruesome of all
the things displayed are the cannibal
forks, What tales of wild adventure
and what horrible pictures they can
conjure up.
The natives usually ate with their
fingers but it was taboo to touch a
dead body with the hands so these
wooden forks had to be used in the
special cannibal feasts. Bodies were
cooked in hot ovens and eaten so
gradually that they became high,
that was another reason for the
An Unbeaten Record
This particular fork came from the
Fiji Islands, the greatest cannibal on
record in those parts was one Udreu-
dre Rabiraki, who Is credited with
having eaten, all by himself, eight
hundred and seventy-two persons. It
is interesting to speculate that the

Cosmopolitan Cluub
Formed On Campus
The CosmopUtan Club, a new organization on the campus In the last
fortnight, aims to promote more effective contacts between the various
national groups at the university and
to secure intelligent study of national and international problems.
The lack of such Intercourse has
forced Itself upon the attention of
some students during the past year
so strongly that immediate steps are
being taken to remedy the condition.
Not only at present, but In the future, race groups within Canada
must come to an understanding of
each other and the part they must
play in the development of the nation.
Those interested in a club with
such aims are asked to meet Thursday noon in Arts 105.
The Editor,
Dear Sir:
The Science men fuUy agree with
"Regusted' regarding the bad manners displayed by people in the gallery during recent pep meetings.
This year, however, a great many
Artsmen have been sitting in the
gallery with the Sciencemen and are
chiefly responsible for the poor exhibition.
In future the Sciencemen wUl sit <n
the front rows of the Auditorium as
they have in past years. Thoy may
have an excess of pep but object to
the unjust accusation of rowdyism.

Dear Sir:
Tlie V. C. U. would Uke to disclaim
any responsibility for the letter signed "Fundamentalist" whloh appeared ln the October 10th issue. We realize the incongruity of disaUowing,
coUege students the right to criticize
anyone, no matter how great his reputation. Freedom of speech and
thought is for aU. No member of the
V. C. U. knows the identity of the author of the letter. Malice and a Christian spirit do not agree. Being human,
we aU know how easy lt Is for the
love of the fight for the truth to o'er-
shadow even the love of the truth itself.
Yours sincerely,
Howard Bentall,

the evolution-fundamentalist controversy. As all sides of the question have

Heart Throbs
Editor, Muck Page,
Ubyhoo, UJ3.C,
Dear Sir or Madam, as the case may
In response to numerous urgings
from my two companlons-in-misery,
Co-Co and Merton. I take 'up my
pen (It's really not a pen) to protest the flippant and offhand way in
which you have disposed of Chang
Suey, diabolical character de luxe.
For many years we labored to make
him the fearful creature that he Is,
and now we find him deposited beneath tha Bus Stand without even
so mueh aa a placard to mark ius
last resting place.
But ho will not stay thtre long,
Already there is a crack appearing
in the cement of the stand flooring,
and weird oriental noises have been
heard in the vicinity of that same
Bus Stand. Can it be that he waa not
dead when you buried him? Is it
possible that he will return to
wreck vengeance upon the ones he
has hated for so many years? Remember, he Is even more powerful
than the insidious Dr. Fu Manchtt.
He will return, never fear. I know,
for 1 can sense his all-pervading evil
presence in everything that I see
around me.
Daily the gap in the cement is
growing larger, and sooner or later
Chang Suey will be in our midst
again — spreading death, fear and
crime in his wake. Beware lest you
be suddenly stricken down by the
diabolical crime machine whilst in
the Caf. Beware lest you awake
some night to find yourself being
strangled by one of his minions. Remember, Chang Suey never forgets!
Yours Jitteringly,
Cyrius de Screpansle.
They met when they were Freshles,
When he asked her for a kiss,

When in the park they're seated,

Well, I'm a big shot now and have
donated my green hat to the first
person which looks under the wallflower chairs down at the Auditorium. I had a swell time at the Frosh,
which my sister being a bit catty
says no wonder on account of being
a lot more men than women there,
but my sister not even being asked
to go sounds very much like sour
apples to me. When everyone had
got sick and tired bumping each
other around the floor, all us freshmen walked under n cardboard hoop
and a nice little dork boy said all
our names out loud to a bunch of
tefachera and things, having quite a
time with my partner which his
nether was mean enough to christen
Lopopaki De Benovowitch, and I
really thing there should be a law
for women who have weaknesses f'.r
those kind of first names marrying
men named Smith or something.
A boy named John Robinson asked
me home, me being luckier than the
two girls I went stag with, which
were optimistic enough to tell their
dad not to call for them and had to
take the street car. I thought John
was quite snitzy until I found that
he plays chess and eats his lunch in

Japanese Problem

desperation, a war that the West
would win, but which would not
wipe out the Japanese and would
still leave their problem of population
and trade for the West to solve.
"There is very real danger that
Japan may be forced into conflict."
After this foreboding statement,
Pi of. Angus went on to the second
source of trouble in the Pacific. This
is international economic conflict.
Each nation, he declared, in trying
to settle internal economic problems,
is heedless of how Its actions affect
its neighbours. This creates a tremendous strain that there is no international legislature to adjust.
Immigration Laws
In asking if anything better could
be hoped for, Mr. Angus instanced
the Chinese immigration law in this
country. A change in it might be
desirable, but it was "politically impossible."
So with the hopes for an international legislature or friendly co-operation between nations. These desirable things were politically impossible. In historical time they might be
achieved, but not yet.
"You may say," stated the speaker,
"that this is a gloomy conclusion. But
we are dealing with a situation in
which reason is helpless. We -ne
dealing with blind movements that
cannot be controlled. We are up
against a stone wall.
"What does one do to a stone wall?
One goes over it, or around it. One
blows it up with explosives, or one
sits down and bemoans one's fate.
Watch Out For the Chips
"To go over this stone wall on the
Pacific is to create an international
legislature or super state. To go
around it is to achieve International
co-operation. To blow It up is war
or revolution; watch out for the
chips. To sit down and bemoan our
fate is to use palliatives, to "muddle
through." After all, that may be the
best course. We do not cry because
we cannot reach the moon. We tit
down philosophically and accept the
"You can look on this lecture as an
experiment. The test is what you
will do. If you feel you can do
something, then there will be hope
of getting round the wall. If not, we
must bemoan our fate."

B. C. Chosen For
Mining Meeting
The Canadian Institute of Mining
and Metallurgy sponsors two major
meetings annually, one in the East
in the Spring, and the other In the
West in the Fall. In normal times
the custom was to hold the Fall
meeting in one ot the four Western
provinces in turn; but since 1930 to
date, it having been recognized that
conditions for holding a successful
mining convention were more favorable in British Columbia than in any
of the other provinces, the meetings
have been convened here. This year's
meeting will be held, jointly with
the Mining Association of B. C. in
Vancouver on November 15, 16 and
17; and, in view of the very marked
revival of the industry, an exceptionally large attendance is expected.
A program of papers, the majority
of which deal with matters of particular interest to British Columbians,
has been arranged. They include the
following; "The Geology of the Cariboo Gold Fields" by Dr. Victor Dol-
mage; "The Bralorne Mine" by R.
Bosustow; "The Gold Bearing Black
Sand Deposits of Graham Island,
Queen Charlotte Islands" by Dr. J.
T. Mundy; and others with reference
to gold in this provnee. Recently an
enormous blast was fired at the
Granby Company's mine at Anyox
and this is to be described by W. R.
Lindsay and R. L. Healy. Recent refinements in flotation practice at the
Britannia will be detailed by H. A.
Pearce; and the development of the
leaching process in the treatment of
the fume produced from the lend
blast furnace slag at Trail is to be
discussed by W. H. Hannay of the
Consolidated's Research Department,
and James Bryden who is in charge
of the Oxide Fume Leaching plant
there. The coal men will be Interested in the description by Paul
Grundy of the new coal cleaning
plant at Michel; and also in the paper by H. E. Miard, Inspector of
Mines, on the use of the seismograph
in the study of bumps. A discussion
on the protection of the mine Investor, with special .eference to the operation of the Securities Act, is to
be Introduced by J. D. Galloway and
will no doubt bring out many points
that It Is desirable should be freely
debated in the interests of the Industry. There will also be a review
of mining in Alberta by A. A. Miller,
Chief Inspector of Mines for that
province; and two Manitoba Papers,
one on the industrial and fuel minerals, by G. M. Hutt and Fred B. Sei-
bert, and the other on prospecting
areas by A. J. McLaren. Of very
wide general interest will be a comprehensive paper by Dr. Charles
Camsell, Deputy Minister of Mines,
entitled "Some Features of Canada's
Position with Respect to Base Metals." It may also be noted that at
one of the evening sessions Dr. T. A.
Rickard, the distinguished author of
"Man and Metals," will lecture on
"The Mining of the Romans."
The meeting will be open to the
public and the Institute extends a
cordial Invitation to all interested in
the mining Industry to attend.

Once upon a time there was a
king with a long gray beard who
lived in a beautiful stone castle. lit
was very kind to beautiful ladies but
often cruel to men, and especially
to some of the knights ot his kingdom who delighted in fighting duels
before the castle and pushing one
another into the moat. When this
king had the good fortune to find
one of these, helpless in tha moat, he
carried him off to the dungeons below the castle, and from the torture
chambers arose weird sounds at ail
hours ot the day, like tha moaning
of a winter wind.
The king used to spend hours
among the thousands of books which
he kept in his castle, and had a pedestal erected at the entrance to tho
castle warning people to bo quiet.
But one dark night the pedestal
disappeared. In a rage tho king declared that the castle would bo
closed it it were not returned. Weeks
dragged by, and finally tho king was
forced to replace it himself.
A broken man, he spends hours,
locked in his room, brooding over
his wounded pride, but whan that
weird moaning arises from below, tho
people in the castle whisper in awed
tones, "The king wiU be revenged!
He will yet find his pedestal!"

Paul   Kozoolin   Scores   Lone
Goal; McGill Injured
Taking the field in brand new
shirts Varsity Soccermen turned back
a fighting Regals squad by the narrow score of 1-0 at McBride Park on
Saturday afternoon. The result of
the game was in doubt until the
final whistle.
Varsity started with McOiU and
McDougal as full-backs, but scarcely
IS minutes had elapsed when the
former hurt his leg and left the
field, Jock Waugh taking his place.
A new formation was tried out on
the half-line, with Bill Wolfe in the
centre, flanked by Russ Stewart on
the right and Tim Louie on the left.
This left Paul Kozoolin free to join
the forward line at inside-right. His
partner at outside right was Hughie
Smith. A, freshman, Jack Martin,
held the centre position, whUe the
left wing was taken care of by two
old stalwarts, Ernie Costain and
Dave Todd.
Favoured by a brisk breeze, and
by the absence of one Varsity player, Regals pressed hard at the outset and kept the Blue and Oold defence busy for the first fifteen minutes. However, good work kept
them out and with the arrival of
Smith, the Collegians began to share
in the attacks. About this time Re-
gall substituted mountain-man McLean for a. Waugh who soon earned
the disapproval of the onlookers by
his rough tactics. Good scoring
chances were few for either side,
and the first forty-five minutes
passed without a tally.
With the wind and sun at their
backs, Varsity dominated the play in
the early part of the second half, and
several attacks by the forwards came
close to the mark, for the offensive
combined better than at any time
previous. Finally Kozoolin snared a
loose ball just inside ttie penalty
area and drove in a hard low shot
with his left which the goalie got
his hands to, but could not slop.
Shortly after Martin struck the
bar with a beautiful cross shot from
a difficult angle, and followed this
by hitting the wrong side of the upright in another Blue and Gold attack in which he collided with the
opposing goalie. Despite continued
pressure, Varsity could not score
again, and Regals tightened up once
more to worry the Collegians' defence with several strong saUies.

After playing an over-anxious and
much too eager game in the first
half, Varsity's Senior English Rugby
squad steadied down and scored 27
points in the second half to smother
Ex-King Oeorge 30-0 on Saturday
afternoon at Brockton Point. The
second division team won their game
with All-Blacks 6-3, whUe the third
team blanketed Ex-Tech 12-3.
By their win on Saturday, the Senior team proved themselves to be
strong contenders in the TisdaU
league and should defeat the powerful All-Black aggregation if they display the some form as on Saturday.
Next week Varsity meets Ex-Magee
at Brockton Point.
In the opening half the student
backfield was decidedly weak. The
threes handled and passed poorly
and fumbled throughout. Varsity's
only score came when Pearson picked
the ball from the loose, and after a
nice run passed to Pyle who went
over.   The try went unconverted.
However, it was a far different
Varsity team that took the field after
the rest period. The scrum was
working to perfection both in the
scrum and in the loose, while the
threes ran through the Ex-King
backfield almost at will. McGuire,
Mitchell and Upward in the front
line of the scrum heeled cleanly and
managed to hook the ball s_venty-
five percent of the time,
Dave Paugh and Al Mercer proved
a strong combination as inside threes

Derry Tye struck his last season's

Varsity second division chalked up
their first win nt Douglas Park last
Saturday when they defeated North
Shore All Blacks 6-3. Sloppy passing by both sides and bad three-
quarter work by Varsity made the
game rather a loose affair.
AU Blacks opened the scoring in
the first half but failed to convert.
Both ot Varsity's scores came in
the second stanza on trys. The first
came after a scrimmage on the All
Black one yard line, Sanderson missing the kick. After a line-out close
to the line Macdonald snatched up
the ball and raced across for the last
score, Sanderson again missing the

The Club has been communicating
with *the U. of W. Golf team, re coming to U.B.C. for a match near the
end of October. No reply has been
received   as  yet,  but  Lome  Teetzel
Once again "Your Resporter"
pops up, but In a different guise.
This year It's to be exclusively a
basketball dope bucket. Here goes.
Of course the biggest thing on the
melon horizon right now is Varsity's
decision to enter the major team in
the G.V.A.A. hook-up. Adanacs, who
led the hoop parade up until Christmas in last year's contests, has happily done the same, in case some of
you are from Missouri.
And there is President Al Hardy
and what Is left of the Burrard
League sitting down there holding
a half-emptied bag, and I don't
mean to tell you that they feel like
writing home about It.
What I can't understand is why
In the name of Alma Mammy didn't Varsity sec to all this before
the row started when It was too
late, last Spring?
Sure,  they made a stipulation*
that If the Blue and Gold five
made the finals part of the games
were to be played In that gymnasium over there by the Library.
But It wasn't in writing, and when
the finals did come along, and
Varsity's quintette    was   In the
headlines, Hardy   and his   gang
played us for a bunch of suckers.
Does it take a Mark Collins to come
along, and In the face of public ridicule, to tell a crowd of two-facers that
if they don't do what U. B. C. Insists
upon ihcy know what they can do
about it?
It looks that way. Now we're
set. We've got what looks to me
to be as good a team as last year's.
Bur It's not better, and I'm not
trying to hand you a line of blah-
B. arid W. Oil, Adanacs. McKenzie-
Fraser and ourselves make up a foursome that's going to produce some
fast play. Gaines in New Westminster
will be played on either the Arena or
Y.M.C.A. floors while our gym will
be used for encounters here.
Want to see thc schedule? Well,
here it is, and I don't mind telling you that it's up to you in no
small measure to show, by one tremendous response, that U.B.C. and
the Students' Council were justified in sticking up for what they
considered the right thing for
Alma Mater.
And by response I mean support
of the teams, especiaUy the Senior A,
and that means getting out, and bringing every basket fan in the city out,
to those home games. We've got to
fill that gym!!

Varsity     Considerably    Outweighed by Tyreman's Men;
U.B.C. Team Not Yet
"Student  Support  Absolutely
Necessary For Team's Victory" Says Dick
Dut to a shortage of equipment for
the Big Four team, all men in possession of Canadian Rugby strip who
have ceased to turn out are requested
to return It to the strip room In order
that It may be reissued.
expects a reply this week. Washington has always fielded a strong team,
es they have proved in past years,
but this season, however, U.B.C. golfers are preparing to meet them on in
even basis and if possible to assert
Canadian supremacy.
Varsity gridmen are all set for
their second encounter in the Big
Four Loop, when they clash with
Don Tyreman's V.A.C. twelve, tomorrow night at 8 o'clock at Athletic
This game from all reports promises to be the best of the series, due
to the fact that Varsity and V.A.C.
are probably two of the most contrasting teams in the conference.
Captain Dick Farrington, in an interview, seemed confident and stated
that if the Blue and Gold boys show
the stuff they did when they took
Victoria for a 3 to 1 beating two
weeks ago, the game will be in the |
Looking over the statistics of the
two teams, however, Varsity seems
considerably outweighed, their team
average being 165 pounds as compared with V.A.C.'s team average of
180 pounds.
Many of the old stars will play for
the Alma Mater, although the team
has not yet been definitely picked.
Among the old timers are, Doug. Mclntyre, Freddy Bolton, Johnstone and
Farrington stated that, due to the
fact that there was much competition for places, he would not definitely pick the team until a later dato.
Here are the men that have been
tentatively picked: Keillor and King
at centre with Akhurst, Campbell
and Johnstone us guards. For tackle,
Williscroft, Senkler, Kirby and Gur-
die Anderson will stand the teat,
supported by Poole, Joe Rob.rts,
Gwyre and Milt Owen at ends. Jack
(Tubby) Bourne and SneUing taking
over the flying wing berths.
For the quarter, there is Bolton
and Farrington, with Ed Kendall,
Frank Rush, Doug. Mclntyre and
Nichol in as halves. To complete the
line up, Rader and Patterson will be
in as fullbacks.
"This is going to be a tough game
for Varsity, so the more support the
team gets from the student body, the
better are the chances for victory,"
so stated Archie Dick, Canadian
Football Club prexy. Dick also
announced that, as usual, special student tickets could be obtained in the
quad box office for the small sum of
twenty-five cents.
