In Future For Head
Two protests concerning the length
of meetings held during the noon recess period were featured at Students' Council's regular weekly meeting Monday evening.
The first was contained in a letter
from Faculty committee on student
affairs, in which the committee deplored the exceeding length of the
Howard Scott meeting on Nov. 19.
The letter stated that the increased
noon recess period had been given
to the students to facilitate meetings
of every type, and that in future all
meetings must come to a close by
Further protests concerning noon
hour meetings were filed by Students' Council members, who condemned students for arriving late at
the regular vocational guidance meetings hold Wednesday.
Financial state .cnts read at the
meeting showed that the deficit on
the Freshette Supper amounted to
$1.25, and on the Science Class Party
amounted to $33.23. This latter
amount had been covered subsequently by donations from the various Science classes, it was announced. The
Arts-Aggie Ball showed a profit of
A touch of humor was supplied by
a short controversy on the amount of
Alma Mater fees collected from students attending regular courses.
The discussion arose over a refund
of fifty percent, of her Alma Mater
fees to a student in the final year of
nursing who recently stopped attending the University.
John Harrison, men's athletic representative on Council, asked: "Surely tho Alma Mater Tee isn't S10?" A
refund of SZ> was made.
Class presidents will not receive
complimentary tickets to class parties
in future, it was decided.
No Arts '36 class party will be held
unless the class executive has received $100 in class fees by this evening,  Council   members said.
Among Letters read at the meeting

scientific executive on Students'
On the face of the postcard was a
photograph of Niagara Falls. On the
reverse was a short terse message:

resolution "That this house will not
take up arms under any circumstances", Eli Kelloway of McGill University, and Sidney Hermant of the
University of Toronto, visiting debaters, won a unanimous decision
over a team representing the University of Alberta here last Friday evening. Dr. R. C, Wallace, President
of the University, was chairman, and
the judges were Hon. J. W. Hugill,
Attorney-General of the Province;
Mr. Justice Ford of the Alberta Supreme Court; and Mr. G. H. Van

This victory keeps intact thc visitors' series of wins on their western

fifth to go in their favor. At Calgary, birthplace of the Alberta Social
Credit League, the visitors debated
on a resolution contrary to Social
Credit before a large audience, and
obtained a decision in their favor.

At a meeting of fifth year Science
on Friday, Tom Brock and Bruco
Robinson outlined plans for the Sci-
•ence section of this year's Totem.
Brock pointed out that the Totem, although seemingly of little importance
to graduates at present, will in future
years become a record of their own
and their classmates' campus activities; a record that will be reviewed
with pride and cherished as symbolic
of the good fellowships of college life.
Accordingly it is up to every Scienceman to take a personal interest
iu the record book of his class and
do his outmost in helping to make it
a record that he will be proud to remember. First, all members of tho
graduating classes and members of
the SMUS executive must make arrangements for Photographs at tire
Artona studio, before the end of
Next, each section will be responsible for choosing a representative to
take chargv of alloting tho personal
write-ups. their collection, and their
return to either Torn Brock or Bruce

These write-ups should be brief and
to the point and in approximately
fifty words outline thc graduate's interests, activities, clubs and organization.;, home town, and other points
of interest such as ambitions, cccon-
ti icities, capabilities, or worldly words
of wisdom.
The Sciencemen of all years are

Gives Witty Speech
About U.B.C. In
h&klN Instructors
Another win has been put to the
credit of the Western Canada debating
team of which Jay Gould is a member. On Saturday, Oould and Western, of the University of Saskatchewan defeated the other U.B.C. (University of Bishop's College) on the
question: "Resolved, that the Japanese menace is a myth." The Western Canada team upheld the affirmative.
On Nov. 20 the team out debated
McGill on the subject: "Resolved, that
this House would rather live in present day Russia than in present day
At University of Western Ontario,
they again upheld the affirmative of
the Japanese question successfully.
According to the University of Western Ontario Gazette, "Western's debating team put up a strong battle
against the team from Western Canada on Wednesday night. The decision was given to the visiting team."
During the voting Jay Gould gave
"an informal witty speech on the University of British Columbia."
Thus far, the team has won three
out of five debates.

Wheezing a sigh of relief and
wiping it's collective brow at the
conclusion of the Christmas plays on
Sataui'day night, The Player's Club
idled it'; doublet and hose and makeup and went out to celebrate. Large
disorganized parties descended on local dine and dance palaces before
tracing their erratic routes homeward.
The three-evening run provided
plenty of untoward incident for actors and committees alike. Each year's
performance is enlivened by a shot
of the unexpected, and last week's
plays were no exception. Friday night
ahdienccs were distracted by a nomadic cat of plebeian descent which
wandered through the audience rubbing against people's legs. Eunice
Alexander led the rescue squad, and
the cat was neatly boxed away in a
drawer in the Green Room.

If your acting role demands that
you drink beer on the stage, and the
beer ia in reality cold tea, and the
cold tea has been thoroughly flavored
with soap, all you can do is drink
it and simulate enjoyment. This was
the plight of the "Poor Wot 'Elps"
cast on Saturday night. Use of ginger beer previously had forced Lloyd
Hobden into giving forth a well-
round )d   eructation   which   disrupted
the performance.

A stage hand and one of the actresses, whose name will not be divulged, but who wore a green dress
and double fox furs in her part, went
for supper one night to a hamburger
house where they sat so long over
their coffee that wlven they walked
out without paying for anything they
weren't   even   noticed.
"Wassail." the rousing offstage yell
in "H.imlel", was contributed by
other members of the cast and all
others interested. Pat McRae was the
drunken laugh. Hamlet's purse—it

"Wassail" again. Some enthusiastic

LA. Wright Is
Sixth Vocational
Guide Speaker
Mr. L. A. Wright, one of the most
successful insurance agents in the
Dominion, is the Vocational Guidance
speaker for next Wednesday.
Mr. Wright is B. C. Manager for
the prominent Sun Life Assurance
Company of Canada. When stationed
in Toronto, he was invited on several
occasions, to give guidance talks to
University students there, so that he
will come to U.B.C. well prepared to
discuss the important field of life insurance.
Born in Salesbury, N.B., Mr. Wright
received his education in the city of
Moncton. At the age of eighteen he
came to Vancouver, and eventually
joined the sales force of the Sun Life
Company in the spring of 1914. In
the fall of that year he went overseas with the artillery of the First
Canadian Division. There he saw
plenty of action, for he did not leave
France until 1919.
Immediately on his return, he rejoined the staff of the Sun Life,
where his ability soon expressed itself in the large volume of business
he transacted. Promotion came
quickly and in 1924 he was sent to
Edmonton as manager, a position he
held for four years with marked sue?
cess. The next move was in 1928 to
Toronto, which was at that time the
largest life insurance office in the
British Empire. There he remained
as silvs manager until September,
li'34. when he returned to Vancouver
as B, C. Manager, and since his return iie has built up his agency until
it is now transacting more business
than  any  other* Canadian  office.
"Some points of conduct have been
brought to my attention, such as the
unnecessary disturbance frequently
taking place in the halls during noon
hour, and even during lecture periods", said Ardy Beaumont during the
Women's Undergrad meeting in Arts
100 last Friday noon.
The meeting was called together "to
gatlvor up the loose ends." The treas-
uicr read the financial statements of
the fashion show and the Tea Dance
on Alumni Day. A profit of $201.05
for the former and of §37 for the second was announced.
Later in the meeting the President
congratulated Phratarcs on their initiation and banquet, and suggested
that they should try to find out the
names of the out of town girls who
were going to spend their holidays in
the city, "since there arc many functions we would like to include them
Dean Bollert congratulated the
president on the fine turnout that has
been obtained, and announced that
Miss Mary Dingman would speak in
Arts 100 on Tuesday. Dec. :t, at 12
noon. "Miss Dingman should have a
world message for the Women of this
campus." she added.
Musical Society
Goes Communist?
Maybe the Musical Society has affiliated* with tho Communist International. Or maybe not. Anyway, there
was a very red flag flying from the
window of thc Clubroom yestc-idiy.
This was composed of a spear from
Hamlet, and one of the drapes from
"The Mask." Someone with a sense
of humor had added the short; pants
worn by Lloyd (Burp) Hobden in
"It's Thc Poor Wot 'Elps The Poor."
Plans called for something more intimate, but the Musical jokestors
could not find any suitable garments.
Not Going to Coach
Senior Teams; Physical Educationists
Provision for the appointment of
two part-time physical education instructors was made at a meeting of
the University Board of Governor!
on Monday night. At the same time a
small grant was made to cover the
purchase of necessary athletic equipment that would be made necessary by
the institution of voluntary physical
education classes.
It was pointed out on Monday night
at the conclusion of the meeting that
no provision had been made for qualified instructors to take over the coaching and training of University athletes in any of the major sports, and
the physical instructors who will
shortly be appointed will not be paid
to fulfill that function.
If they wish to take over the coaching of teams, however, no objection
will be raised by University authorities, Dr. L. S. Klinck, president of
the college, explained, but they'will
receive no remuneration for those
Their duties, he declared, will be to
supervise physical educational training, and to assist in the organization
of the intra-mural sports programme.
Dr. Klinck was appointed chairman
of a committee that will be set up in
the near future to decide upon which
applicants will be most suitable for
the position. Student *topfi.ioru(in the
matter will be obtained, he said.
It was announced that Dr. A. F. B.
Clark, professor in French, has been
advised by M. Paul Suzor, consul for
France, that the French government
has conferred upon the U, B. C. professor the distinction of Officier d'-
Dr. D. C. B, Duff, President Klinck
said, expects to attend the meeting
of the Canadian Public Health Association in Toronto during the Christmas holidays, and will present a paper to the meeting entitled: "The
Quantitative Estimation of Indol by
Means of Dialysis."
Two reports were submitted to the
meeting of the Board, one written
by Prof. Walter H. Gage and printed
by the Royal Society of Canada, the
other by Prof. L. Richardson, reprinted from the American Mathematical
Profs. To Debate
Exam Abolishment
"That Examinations should be abolished," is the topic slated for the next
noon, hour debate sponsored by the
Parliamentary Forum,, which is to
take place in the near future.
This debate will be on the same
plan as the Pub.-S.C.M. contest, with
two professors debating two students.
The professors will take the stand
that examinations should be abolished, while the students will stand
up for the annual guessing contest.
Suggested ns members of the professors' team by those who know are
Dean Buchanan and Prof. J. F. Day,
mentor of the Forum. It is expected
that this debate will take place within the next two weeks. Monday has
been set a.s thc day, in order not to
interfere  with  activities   in  the  gym.
This will bring to a conclusion the
activities of the Parliamentary Forum
for the fall term. After Christmas,
three more of these noon hour debates will be arranged.

The "Ubyssey" has given expression to its
lively appreciation of the work the Players'
Club has done in its Christmas plays, an appreciation that has been earned by hard and intelligently directed effort. It is therefore only just
that the other side of the case should have a
hearing, and that we should warn the Club
against detracting from the favorable impression they have made by a petulant and exacting attack on their student audience of Thursday night.
'Certain members (we hope* and believe,
only a misguided few) have been broadcasting
their annoyance at the laughter of that audience in places where the script of the plays did
not call for laughter.
Tho Club should remember that the audience is not bound by the limitations of the
script. In our opinion, the student audience
exercised its privilege of judgment with laudable discrimination, and laughed where a laugh
was called for—in precisely where the plays, if
not the script, were funny.
It was unfortunate that the director of
"Hamlet" did not excise that line about the
"state of Denmark." Shakespeare, after all, is
not gospel, and even the sacred books have
occasionally been amended; there is no reason
why Shakespeare should not be amenable to
the dictates of necessity. The line in question
has, through long association with the lower
forms of humor, taken on a definitely comic
overtone, and though it did not spoil an otherwise excellent production ,came perilously near
But the chief criticism was directed toward
the laughter that greeted "The Mask." This
criticism is unjustified. "The Mask," as presented by the Players' Club on Thursday was
definitely and unmistakeably funny. The laughs
it drew were created by the play itself.
There is no reason why an audience should
"put themselves in the mood" to receive seriously comic turns, just because the organization presenting the turns takes them seriously
themselves. This attitude is going a little too
far, even for such a prominent body as the
Players' Club.
If, as has been claimed, the laughter was
the product of deliberate rowdyism, it is
strange that it was not provoked at times when
there was a better opportunity and more ample
justification—when the play in progress was
ridiculous, rather than funny. It should be
enough to remind the Players' Club members
that there were such opportunities during the
course of the evening, and that they were passed over in kindly silence.

Three young artists, Edward Hughes, Or-
ville Fisher, and Paul Goranson have for some
time now in Vancouver sought the recognition
of their work. The worth of their mural decoration done in this city has finally realized
for them a showing at the Art Gallery. From
the sixth to the sixteenth of December there
will be hung in the Reproduction Room a series of about thirty pictures, all representative
of the dry-point achievement of these three
young men.      i
They, as young artists, believe that their
work, within a definite conception of composition, should realize nature as completely as
possible. (This does not, of course, imply any
limitation of subject-matter.) Later an assurance of technique thus achieved will make
possible a more profound emotional response.
Not that they are at all dogmatic, but that the
idea is, in a world of self-conceived and abortive geniuses, significant and certainly necessary to a full appreciation of their present
Amateur actors are usually quite aware
of their own inadequacy, and any criticism of
individual performance has little meaning. It
must be remembered that the Player's Club
is made up of students whose connection with
the stage must be in addition to their regular
work and that they are probably the hardest
working group on the campus.
At any rate, whaever the Christmas Plays
were, the incredibly stupid behavior of the student audience made it seem quite unbelievable
that the undergraduate body possessed really
enough intelligence for the production of a five
minute skit.
As for the plays it must be said, I believe,
that It's the Poor Wot 'Elps thc Poor was a
very unfortunate choice of script, the general
deficiency of which was accentuated by the
lack of unified direction. The desire to do
Cockney dialect seems to be a sort of complex.
The three other plays were rather more successful. Scenes from Hamlet was the result
of careful and well-related direction. H. D.
Cameron did a difficult part with a sincerity
that the supporting cast lacked.
Lois Still as Vashti of The Mask gave to her
performance a real and lively quality. John
Brynelson and Miss Still worked together very
effectively and made a definite rhythm for the
Villa For Sale moved with the sureness required of a comedy. It may be that Anna
Cantwell possesses more definitely dramatic
The stage sets throughout were suitably designed and handled; the setting for the first of
the Hamlet scenes was particularly well done.
The Christmas Plays seem to indicate that
the Player's Club of this year has the promise
of a successful Spring Play. More especially
though was created a feeling of what might be
done if in some way the organization could be
made a full time course.
The Mirror of the Parisian Bibliophile
by Alfred Bonnardot (from the French of 1847)
The title-page of this small volume carries
the sub-heading "A Satirical Tale" and the
story serves to remind that it is possible to
write satirically of the foibles of life without
becoming savagely sardonic about its futility.
The Mirror is a gay and extravagant tale
of rivalry between two die-hard Parisian book-
collectors, the one of whom plans to marry his
daughter to the other, for the greater glory of
his own library. Of course young love eventually achieves fulfilment and the development of the inevitable French theme of the deceived husband is thus somewhat offset.
The whole charm of the book is to be found
in the moods of its gently ironic manner. M.
Bonnardot wishes us to understand the bibliophiles, not to laugh at them.
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The ci ude and obviously unintellect-
ual reception giv\?n Thursday evening
to the Christmas effort of the Players'
Club by the student body was one
v/hich reflected very little credit on
the University. It apparently demonstrated the futility of endeavoring to
elevate the cultural level of the students.
Undoubtedly there were flaws in
tho performance; but these flaws, no
matter how glaring th'ey may have
been, should not have elicited the
rather unreasoning blast of criticism
from the press.
The students., who went to the
Christmas Plays were not seeing a
professional performance. They were
viewing the efforts of amateurs for
the most part new to the stage, who
werj doing their best to give their
fellow students a creditable performance. When confronted by an audience which greeted the line from
"Hamlet", "Theiv is something rotten
in the state of Denmark," with howls
of laughter, and who asked one another why the director of that play
had inserted that speech, the players
wero working under a great difficulty. It is greatly ta their credit that
they carried on as well as they did,
No ac'or can give his best in a stage
performance when the audience is
frankly ungenttemanly, unintellectu-
ally disposed to try to appreciate his
efforts, and definitely unsympathetic.
Concerning tho plays themselves I
should like to say a few words in
the strict sense of criticism: "Tha
Poor" was definitely a bad play; not
because it was badly portrayed by
the actors, but because it was bad
drama. It suffered from a superabundance of characters, few of whoth
wet\; important except from the point
of view of cluttering up the stage,
and from a lack of any real plot. In
fact it was not a play; it was merely
a rather poor nggrcgational portrait
of cockney types.
"Thi Mask" was of that melodramatic type which must be perfectly
donj if it is to be effective. In this
play the actors failed to; keep up the
atmosphere, and the sense of reality
was lost. The passion of the illicit
love failed to give the impression of
intense passion. The failure of the
players to achieve thc desired effect
in the performance of "The Mask"
was due largely to the extreme difficulty encountered in trying to preserve the atmosphere of sincerity and
reality in the melodrama.
The scenes from "Hamlet" were
well done. The actors interpreted
their parts well. Hamlet, however,
did not exhibit that diversity and
bubbling spontaniety of emotion
which characterizes Shakespeare's
Hamlet, and which mak«s his outbursts at times akin to the ravings of
a madman. His interpretation ran a
little too much on an even keel of
emotion. On the whole the interpretation of Hamlet and of the other
characters in the scenes was excellent
and the performance was one of
which the club may be proud.
"Villa for Sale" was a well sustained social farca, and obviously a
success. The acting in the play was
excellent and appropriate to the type.
One would like to point out, however, that despite the popular success
of this play in contrast to the disaster which overtook the other plays
on student night, "Villa for Sale" was
one of the simpler plays. It required
the least amount of talented acting
to put ii over of any of the plays. It
was also the least artistically and intellectually dramatic. The fact that
it and it alone received any appreciative recognition from the audience
is a reflection on the standard of artistic appreciation of the student body.
The criticism of the "Ubyssey" of
the Christmas Plays, while in a degree unfair, gives one something to
hope for. Anyone who is interested
enough to really attempt to criticize
in al half serious manner, may, as his
appreciation matures, become not
merely derogatory, but constructively
The reception given the plays on
Student Night was a boorish and intellectually inexcusable demonstration of a slovenly minded student
If there be any doubt as to whether
there is anything "Rotten in the State
of Denmark" there is certainly no
doubt that there is something rotten
in the present low state of the intellectual appreciation of the students
of this university,—S. D.

I was rather amused to read a most
astounding piece of impudence and
optimism in your columns in the
form of a letter from the so-called

campus organizations to unite with
it in an anti-war drive.
This League has a local Chapter
w'th 25 members, including graduates and high school pupils. It's action in calling on the established University organizations to unite with it

Peeps' Diary
Christmas certainly seems to be a
popular topic right now, what with
Christmas shopping and Christmas
plays. I'm getting all my shopping
done early, not because of all the
propaganda heard over the radio
about getting Christmas shopping
done early, but because I want to
get it all done before exams arrive.
The plays were awfully good. I
went on Friday and had more fun
looking at the marvellous dresses the
ushers wore. I bet most of them came
from ANNE MALONEY'S, they looked
nice enough to be hers. By the way
she has a new shipment of the loveliest looking dinner dresses, crepes
and satins trimmed with metalics and
lames. Some have the trickiest beaded jackets. They would make marvelous Christmas presents to give
yourself if you can't persuade your
father to give it you. They are
priced so  reasonably no one should
have any difficulty in persuading dad.

The make-up they used wasn't
much good. Personally I think the
club would do much better to go
down to the corner of Robson and
Howe to get some of those Leichner
make-up-kits sold by CLOU. I'm
going to buy a lot of them to give
away for Christmas presents. They
are the most fascinating things, so
compact they will fit into any purse
and the price is only 35c. A girl can
carry her whole dressing table with

It's terribly frightening to think of
exams coming along so fast. As soon
as they are over I'm going up the
mountain with my brother to get
away from it all. It is nice my
brother is taking me up because he
can carry all the blankets and food,
I will have a hard enough job carrying myself up Grouse mountain.
Talking of skiing, when I was down
town the other day I popped into
Marion Brown's on 711 Dunsmuir
street and saw the trickiest lastex
panties which will be just perfect for
skiing. They are very light but do
a marvellous job of holding you together. That will be a big help for
me because when I'm skiing I have
a habit of more or less falling to bits.
The price is so low that even with
Christmas coming along I could af-
jford to buy a part.

exercise around this campus. I saw

By the way, RAE'S is offering a 20

It was time something was done. About this modern
poetry, I mean. It has been going on since before the war, and
all the time I have kept quiet, mostly because I haven't read
Two years of research (mostly trying to remember where
I put my pipe) have brought to light the following facts:	
Modern Poetry is divided into three classes: Class 1, or
obscene blank verse, Class II., or obscene blank verse, and Class
IV, or the Demon Rum. (There used to a Class III., or The
Boy Scouts in the Andes, but people talked.)
Class One is practically the same as Class Two, except that
one uses dots and the other dashes. The Morse Code uses both,
but that has nothing to do with us. The modern poet is bad
enough without worrying about static.
If you want to find out about modern poetry, here's how:
You buy a slim volume bound in purple leather. This is
called "Songs of a Ditch Digger," and will cost you $4.50.
You go home, pick out a nice, comfortable chair and sit
down. The first poem is about love, but you are not supposed
to know that.   So you start to read it.
The next morning you wake up with a headache, throw the
book at the dog, and go to work. You have been introduced
If you are still damn fool enough to want any more, you
can find out for yourself. I'm certainly not going to tell you.
One poem was enough for me. Hereafter I'll stick to my dime
novel on these long winter evenings. Or maybe I'll just listen
to the radio.   I'm no fool.
can get the loveliest compacts, tricking cigarette cases, earings, hair ornaments and everything. The only
trouble is everything is so fascinating that you end up by buying too
many things, I only hope someone
will remember to buy me one of
their lovely rhinestone bracelets. If
they don't I'll just have to get myself
one. A rhinestone bracelet like those
MAISON HENRI sells is a sure way
to any girl's heart.
When I was going home the other
day after a protracted session in the
library I saw the funniest thing. A
whole lot of boys standing on the
bus stand peeling grape fruits and
eating them. No sugar and no spoons.
They had made an awful mess of
themselves before they were through.
I'd rather go to the BLUE GOOSE
any day and eat really good food. I
think I'll go down there for tea between my exams. The peace and
quiet of the BLUE GOOSE, to say
nothing of the food would save anyone from a nervous breakdown.

Ihe unfortunate Pub.
Our Princess, our pride and

O fickle feminity! She did but

a casual word of greeting, and
off she tripped, leaving behind

dashed hopes.

residence students for the past two
weeks, was written last Wednesday
afternoon. At that time the Committee on Student Affairs, highest court
of appeal in the university, heard
three appeals from alleged "indiscriminate fining" by the Men's House
Committee, governing student body in
charge of affairs in the men's residences. The first case heard was that
of a non-resident freshman who had
been fined for walking across one of
the grass plots in front of residence.
He claimed to have no knowledge of
the "keep off the grass" rule, and
had had no warning. Mr. O'Brien,
Chairman of the House Committee,
and a central figure about) which the
storm has revolved, admitted that
after having just previously seen
three students take short-cuts across
the grass and having warned them,
the sight of this fourth offender
"made his hair stand on end" and
that he had probably not been justified* in his action, and thereupon
moved that the appeal be allowed.
The motion was carried. A resident
sophomore, fined for the same offence, admitted knowledge of the
rule, but appealed upon the technicality that he had not been called
before the whole committee to state
his caue. His appeal was lost. Third
appeal was made by a resident student fined for throwing a napkin at
dining table. The student claimed no
warning had been given regarding
this "offence" and the fact was admitted by the House Committee.
However, fines had been levied previously for the same offence, and the
appeal was lost. It is not yet known
if there will be further developments.
For the first time the music of one
of thc regular Saturday night dances

The University, together with the
rest of the city of Edmonton is gradually digging Itself out from under
the heaviest November snowfall in
the past twenty years, which brought
down a total of nearly two feet of
snow in three days. Roads and sidewalks around the campus have been
shovelled off and tramped down and
once more it is possible to move

of snow created some remarkably
beautiful scenes on the campus.

Rugby Club Keeps
Up With Leaders
Smith, Leggatt, Carey, Wilson Griffin,
Senkler, Score Tries
Smashing raggedly through a somewhat improved Ex-
Magee for a 2-3 win at Brockton Oval Saturday afternoon, Varsity's senior ruggers at least improved on the disastrous showing of the week before, but did little to inspire -confidence in
their future performances against the stronger league teams.
Smashing raggedly through a some-<t>
what improved Ex-Magee for a 22-3
win at Brockton Oval Saturday afternoon, Varsity's senior ruggers at
least Improved on the disastrous
showing of the week before, but did
little to inspire confidence in their
future performances against the
stronger league teams.
It might have been the disorganized
opposition that prevented the smooth
functioning of the Thunderbird machine; at any rate, they continued
their dependance on individual efforts rather than good team play. In
this case, fortunately, the individual
efforts were sufficient.
Smith, Leggat, Carey, Wilson, Griffin and Senkler got across the Magee-
men's line at different times, and
Carey converted two of the six trys.
The first half was disappointing,
only some clever work on the part
of the backs enlivening an otherwise
dull and ragged period.
Ex-Magee was allowed far too many
chances to break away, going down
to field time after time on rushes
that showed up our tacklers badly.
The Blue and Gold backfield seemed
unable to get their mind on more
than one thing at a time, just as it
was in the Rowing Club catastrophe.
They would not transfer their attention to the man who had the" ball
when their original mark passed it.
Smith was perhaps the worst offender in this regard.
ln the second frame the whole team
appeared to pick up to a certain extent. The scrum worked better, and
the back-field got down to business.
The Redshirts were held in their
own territory, and one thrust after
another sought to penetrate their defence, mora than one succeeding —
four in all, in fact.
The only weakness to be observed
in the Thunderbird play was a vagueness as to who was to look after on-
side kicks. There was a sort of "after
you, my dear Gaston" attitude whenever one of the short punts hovered
over the Varsity line, and quite a
few undeserved yards went to the
opposition, relieving the pressure on
their hardly tried line.
Otherwise, the team clicked once
more, and if the combination proves
more than a, Hash in the pan, it may
show in its true form in future tilts.
It is to be hoped so, for this year
Varsity has perhaps the finest team
in its history, so far as the roll-call
of players goes, and it would be a
pity if they were to turn in an unsatisfactory year's record merely because of this mysterious malady that
prevents them from combining effectively.
On Saturday full-back Bird, and
forwards Senkler and Colthurst
turned in outstanding games. It is
Paddy Bowen-Colthurst's first excursion into senior division play, and
the erstwhile captain of the second
team proved a valuable addition to
the Thunderbird power-house squad.

Downed By Spencers
Varsity's Senior hooperettes played
the best brand of basketball they
have shown this season when they
lost 15-5 to the Spencer girls. The
diamond "S" team, recently strengthened by three of the Blue Ribbon
stars, had a hard time defeating the
fighting co-eds.
Both teams played good defensive
ball and the score of the first quarter
remained unchanged until after half
time. When Spencers began to score
again, they did so mainly by quick
rushes down the floor to an unprotected Varsity basket. The co-eds had
many similar chances but they were
too slow in getting clown under tho
basket. Consequently their points
were gained by long shots: all by
Ena Clarke. Muriel Anderson, with
five points to her credit, was high
scorer for Spencers.
It was a fast game and proved too
much for Alma Cook, Spencer forward, who in her excitement turned
suddenly  and  fractured  her ankle.

Intra-Mural Sport
In spite of the rain the Intra-mural
games were played on schedule last
Friday. In the last half of a fast,
furious, and amusing English Rugby
game "Moanin" Lowe was seen cling-/
ing to the tail of Mansfield Beach's
distorted sweater and skidding at a
terrific rate in the general direction
of the Juniors' line, Because of this
extraordinary incident Beach failed
to score for the Frosh, but when the
game was finished the Freshmen
found they had scored a decided victory over the Juniors. Frosh baskers
also proved their superiority over thc
Juniors in an exciting hoop game in
the gymnasium. On visiting the Grass
Hockey and Soccer fields we find that
Senior Hockeymen outwitted the
Sophs but not to be out done Soph

Free Tossers
An innovation in Basketball
circles is the Free-throw competition which is being staged
by the Inter-City League. This
latest crowd-amuser made its
debut Saturday night at the
U.B.C. gym.
Six members of each team
are chosen as the representative Free-throwers, and 2 players from this number shoot 15
times at each game. After all
six players from each team
have had their 15 Free-throws,
the top 2 (from each team)
shoot 25 times. The two players having the best average
meet in the finals, shooting 50
times for the Championship.
On Saturday night, Captain
"Joe" Pringle, Bruce Millar, of
the Collegians, and Pete Meehan, Chuck Holmes of the Adanacs took 15 shots each. Resulting as follows. Shots made:
Pringle 11, Millar 10, Meehan

Soccerites Lose To
Vikings; Score 1-2
Because its forwards failed to take advantage of opportunities to score, the senior soccer team lost its tilt with Vikings Saturday at Cambie Street grounds. The score was 2-1.
The comm'enemcent of that win
streak we were to expect, faded away
in the first half. During this period
Varsity controlled the play and had
set-up after set-up presented, but the
forwards, particularly those in the
inside positions, muffed every chance.
It was ln this disastrous first-half
however, that thc Collegians scored.
Apparently disgusted with combined
attempts to find the net, Goddard,
centre forward, went through the
Norsemen's defence himself and
gavo their goalkeeper no chance to
avc. This happened 25 minutes after
the start and was the only score
of the period.
Another   disaster   of   the   first-half
was the loss: of fullback Croll. A few
minutes from the start he received a
hip injury during a charge. His removal necessitated a general switch.
Thurber moved to fullback, McBurney to right half, and keda went on
at  inside right.
Vikings commenced the second half
with renewed fight and forced play
into thc Student's part of the field.
This resulted in two quick goals and
the lead, which Varsity vainly tried
to overcome in the closing minutes
of the game.
The line-up: Quayle; Croll, Sutherland; Thurber, Wolfe, Sweetnam;
Irish, McBurney, Goddard, Okuda,
Greenwood.   Sub., Ikeda.

In one of the queerest games of Basketball seen in many

Jack Barbarie's Adanacs on Saturday, and firmly entrenched
themselves in last place in the Inter-City standings. On the
same night at the V.A.C. gym, Bill Edward's Vacs defeated
Province by a 44-33 score, and climbed four points ahead of the

have a four-point lead over Alma Mater's representatives, but they have
played one more game, so that should
Varsity win tonight, their chances to
take over the third-place standing and
continue to climb to the top of the
league, will better considerably.
Coach "Doc" Montgomery will start
the same stalwarts as in the last contest, with the lineup including "Joe"
Pringle, Bruce Millar, "Spud" Davis,
"Chawley" Hardwick, Carm Ridland,
"Luke" Lucas, George McKee, "Det"
Detwiller, Kyle Berry, "Patty" Patmore.
A reminder—the tipoff for this tussle will be at 9 p.m.
Howsomever, there will be a full
program for the evening, with the
staging of a prelim game at 8:00.
Forst's, undefeated leaders of the
Community Senior B Loop, will meet
Ryerson Intermediate A's. The latter
team lost it's first game in three
years of basketball, and are considered good enough right now to be
playing Senior  company.
For The Pubsters
When the promoter of the Wrestling Matches, Mr. George Fitch, came
to 4te Xmas Plays last Friday he was
shown the Pub office by one of the
proud reporters. He was so impressed
by neatness of the office that he said
"Such a fine group of students must
have the real Varsity spirit." In appreciation he has invited the pub
members to the grunt and groan next
Thursday. He said they might get a
few ideas on how to control disorderly members.

Second Division
Ruggers  Win
An again ou Saturday the "Champs"
—Varsity's Second Division English
Rugby XV — came through with a
win. This time it was a 29-0 victory
over the highly acclaimed ex-Marpole
team, the Challengers.
Playing without the services of
their garrulous captain the Champs
really hit their stride on Saturday
and scored nine tries against their
more experienced opponents without
having their own line crossed onee.
The game was featured by the fine
playing of two former American
Rugby men, Preston and Young,
whose services were enlisted to fill
gaps made by the absence of two of
the regular players, by some really
god runs on the part of the three-q's,
and by another smart performance by
Carruthers,  the half.
It is interesting to note that of the
nine tries scored only one was converted. Thc significance of this lies
in the fact that had they all been
converted the score would have been

' Although Adanacs grabbed a four
point lead right at the start of the
game, and kept ahead for the tint
five or six minutes, the U.B.C. Col-
legians and the Royal Clty-ites battled on even terms all through the
first half. In this period "Joe" Pringle sank two beautiful long shots,
played his usual steady game on
tho defence, and was largely responsible for the 13-U lead Varsity had
at the breather.
The play at the start of the second
half speeded up, both teams running
themselves ragged trying to pull
away out in front. For the first ten
minutes it was another see-saw battle, the lead changing hands continually, until with about 8 minutes to
go, the Adanacs had a 28-23 lead.
Two quick baskets by Meehan and
Douglas, made the score 32-23 for
Adanacs, and caused worried "Joe"
to call time-out. When play was resumed, the Adanacs continued to run
riot, and held a basket-picnic at the
disorganized Varsity team's expense,
winding up in front by a 46-23 score.
In the prelim game, another Varsity team, the Senior B's, was soundly trounced, Forsts, undefeated leaders of the Community Loop, administered this defeat, winning by a 37-13
