Anti-War Meeting
Planned Thursday
Noon, Auditorium
Abolition of C.O.T.C. May Be
Student Speakers WIU Address
The U.B.C. student mass meeting
against war, called for noon Thursday in the Auditorium, may ask for
the abolition of C.O.T.C. from thc
If rumors that are going the rounds
now turn out to be true, a resolution relating to the C.O.T.C. is due
at the first U.B.C. anti-war meeting.
Reports issuing from authoritative
quarters are to the effect that several important campus organizations
have already endorsed a campaign
against the C.O.T.C. and that a similar move is planned for the immediate furture at other Canadian universities.
If such a resolution U brought up
at Thursday's noon meeting, which
is expected to fill the Auditorium, a
controversial subject will be brought
out into the oper for t-tudent discussion and action.
It is no secret that several prominent sponsors of the anti-war movement on this campus have definite
anti-C.O.T.C. sentiment?, which they
consider will be endorsed by a number of U.B.C. students who are beginning to see preparation for the
next war as an immediate issue in
Canada as wed aa hi other countries.
The Permanent Anti-War Committee, consisting of Lex McKillop, Al
Munro, Bill Jaqj^LjUj^Bgckler,, Li-
oner tl^e^MnRme^'Wtt Irorah'
Sibley, has completed arrangements
for thc coming meeting, designed to
be only the first event in a continuing  anti-war   movement.
Anion,"* thc speakers who will '>c
heard in brief adcires.se.") will be Es-
telle Malhoson who will speak on
"The Economic Causes of War," Myron Kuzych, on ''High School Youth
and War," John Sumner on "Fascism
and War," and Alf Kitchen on "Armaments and War,"
It is hoped to have the speeches
finished well before 1 o'clock, according to the organizers. Resolutions
will then be brought up and discussion from the floor asked for. In connection with resoluMons, the committee requests that they be in the hands
of Secretary Jean Frase- by to-morrow.
Science Ball Is
For Thursday
The Commodore Cabaret will bo
the scene of scientific jubillation on
this coming Thursday, when the celebrated Science Ball is held there
from 9 to 1.
Admission has been llm tied to 200,
and tickets are costing $2.50. Each
class will be responsible for one cf
the decorations in harmony with the
spirit of the occasion.
Abroad Offered Studes
Students—genuine students, not the
ordinary variety—are invited to improve their general education during
the holidays. Holidays, presumably,
are the bane of the student's existence.
The student may enjoy an intensive toui- of South America, personally directed by no les:; a person than
Dr. F. E. Williams
Or tho itudent may attend the Moscow Summer School — unfortunately
the two trips cannot be enjoyed hi

haa a private aeroplane. Tho student
will join over two hundred physicians, social workers, nr'.ists, and so
forth (some with Ph.L>. degrees!),
and listen to instruction from all-
Soviet teachers and professors, wi'.h
occasional add res svs from Soviet leaders. (Paging the great and only Stalin!) It is a pity that the true student will not be interested in the
frivolous journeys on thc Volga, in
the Crimea, Black Sea, Caucasus, and
Kharkov districts.
There are still a few members of the senior classes and
of the executives who have not
had their pictures taken. The
last opportunity to have them
taken on the campus will be
Wednesday between 3:30 and
4:30. After this date it will be
necessary to go down to Mr.
Wadd's studio. No pictures will
be accepted after Friday, Feb.
15. Any proofs not ln to the
photographer or to the Pub.

Players' Twentieth Anniversary
Celebrated By Festival Entry
Engineers Are
Successful As
Hosts Saturday
Red - ribboned Sciencemen wi'.h
clean faces and affable smiles herded
some 4,000 gaping visitors around the
Campus on their modestly termed
Open   House  Day . , .
Flushed and eager Juniors dilated
upon their newly acquired knowledge
of the intricacies of sleek, purring
bulks of fat, shining steel and brass.
The Departmant of Electrical Engineering carried off the laurels of
the day. Wonder-struck lay-men
gasped at the ferociousness of the
Telsa Coil with it3 half million voltage. Children in awe envied the magician who could pass livid streams
of electricity through his body.
The "stroboscope," photo-electric
cells, short-wave transmitters and receivers, automatic telephone exchanges, teletypewriters ell contributed to the spectacular setting of this
great mystery hoi.se,
Less spectacular but equally interesting attractions drew these curious
spectators to ihe mineralogical, geological, forestry, mechanical display.
Research students hi chemistry
(Artsmen) forced themselves into the
picture. Complicated apparatus from
high vacuum pumps to weird-looking
devices for tho isolation of silver
atoms and weighing them, stupefhd
the visitors. Before a mess of glass
tubes and bulbs for spliting the molecule one brave soul queried if they
also spit atoms.
Henry Ford provided free entertainment in a long continuous orgy
of blatant talkies in the auditorium.
Thursday night of this week the oldest club on the campus, the Players' Club, celebrates its twentieth anniversary by
entering for the first time in the Provincial Drama Festival.
♦ The Club's entry, "A Moment of
Darkness", has much competition for
the privilege of going to Ottawa, as
the winning play. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday twelve plays will
be acted, four on each of Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights. The
program is as follows:
Thursday, Feb. 14: U.I..C. Alumni
present "The Sister That Walked in
Silence.; U.B.C. Players Club, "A Moment of Darkness"; Vancouver Little
Theatre, "The Waxen Man"; Beaux
Arts, Victoria,  "Remorse."
Friday, Feb. 15: Doidas Club presents, "The Toy Heart"; The Embassy

Employment Bureau
Suggested For U.B.C.
Register Mathews has suggested
that the Ubyssey or some other pub-
lis spirited body organize an employ
ment bureau. Any studmtd hearin
of positions would report them to thi.J
bureau, always providing that they
do not want them themselves. A
girl who hears of an opening for fc'
man, would hasten to the bureau
and win eternal gratitude for herself. A man who does noi fancy himself as a waitress would file the job
at the office.
Suggestions in the shape of letters
to the editor will be welcome.

Astronomical World
"There is a new star in the sky,"
stated Dr. J. A. Pearce of tho Dom-
'(inion Astrophysical Observatory nt
Victoria at the open meeting of tha
Physics Society Friday noon. H'3
went on to explain that a star is
"new" when first visible io the naked
eye. Nova Hercules, his topic of discussion, enly in this sense, is a new
Situated in the conste'lation Hercules, about fifteen hundred light
years distant, it has been, for about
forty years, a faint object recording
itself only after hour exposures on
photographic plates. Suddenly it increased in luminosity one hundred
sixty thousand times. Tlirough the
largest telescopes, two months ago,
it was invisible; now it can be seen
with the naked eye.
Exploding star3 have appeared many
times in past centuries, often to the
superstitious terror of the observers.
Little is understood regarding the
tremendous increase in* temperature
and surface area of these stars. However, by means of spectrum analysis,
which Dr. Pearce discussed in considerable detail, knowledge of temperatures, pressures, atmospheres,
and distance of stars is gained; knowledge which often enables tlw astronomer to classify a star, tc predict its
future history nu;l to tell its past.

Our information was apparently at fault
when in the last issue we accused Council of
attempting to prohibit the sale of the Ubyssey
edition of the Sun last Tuesday. We are informed by a righteously indignant member of
Council that Council had nothing to do with
it, but that he personally forbade the sale of
the papers until he discovered that the paper
had been sold on this occasion in former years
without interference.
tWe are happy to find it necessary to apologize.
There will be four more Vocational Guidance talks given under the series which is
being held this year through the kind interest
of one of our alumni, Mr. Tom Berto. The excellence of the previous talks has warranted a
larger attendance of students than was actually present at them.
One of the unfortunate shortcoming of university students is that they do not realize the
unusual opportunities which are offered to
them in their undergraduate days, and this
would appear to be the reason why the audiences are not larger at these lectures. To those
who attend them the latter should prove of invaluable help in deciding on suitable careers,
for by no other means could they for mas accurate an idea of the nature and requirements
of the different vocationss. They should realize the importance of finding the vocation for
which they are most fitted and in which they
would be happiest.
And especially in view of the generosity of
these prominent men in devoting their valuable time to coming out here to help the students, the latter should reciprocate by showing more interest.
The old sermon about good sportsmanship
at Varsity games comes around as regularly
as April showers and exams, but it was never
more justified than this year, when Varsity
is promoting inter-collegiate sport. A little self-
control would give the university this cheapest and yet most valuable asset in athletics.
It doesn't cost a thing to give the visiting
team a hand; but it's a lot easier before the
game is started, and it only takes a couple of
jittering imbeciles in a moment of crisis to
brand a whole crowd as poor losers. The basketball game with Ellensburg on Thursday
was an example of how a visiting team should
be treated, until two spectators on the west
side of the gym distinguished themselves by
bellowing, fortunately at different times, cheap
unnecessary comments. Notwithstanding the
fact that one of them was a co-ed, an exemplary bouncing would have had a strengthening
effect on student morale.
Mob psychology does horrible things to
one's personal code, and the chorus of hisses
during a free shot does even more horrible
things to Varsity s reputation. U. B. C. teams
have probably better support at games than any
other city teams, and for this reason alone the
Varsity section should have a reputation for
"The   Wm-tvus
By Nancy Miles
Dr. Cowles, a dean at the University of
Idaho, has published the results of an intense
investigation a's to what the average college
student thinks about today.
His findings: "... desire for new knowledge through discovery of new facts and values
. . . desire. to win recognition . . . ultimate
goal of social security . . . liberation from
parental and other forms of domination . . .
finding the right vocation . . . doing right and
living soundly . . . sharing in the relief of
human suffering through achievement of social justice . . . being able to feel at home in
the universe, and so on and on."
That is all very fine, except one wonders
how he got his information. Once we, Arthur
and I, approached a dark-headed damsel. She
had a most rapt expression, a look of glory
spread over her features.
"She," we thought, "has solved life's
greatest mysteries."
We hesitated to intrude on her uplifted
state. After a tactful approach we proffered
the well-known penny, and got out a pencil to
take down the mental jewels for posterity.
Her answer?
"I've definitely decided to peroxide my
Our observation tells us that people who
meditate on eternity, posterity and the gold
standard will tell you they're thinking about
what the next meal will consist of, and vice
How do we know? Intuition, my fine feathered friends.
The answers Dr. Cowles received are probably those he was looking for, and the ques-
tionees were smart enough to guess that. But
the questionees were not smart enough to
know that their answers were flat-footed admission of an adolescent mental stage, and in
our opinion, the average college student should
be past that.
This is not cynical comment; it seems a
much more wholesome state of mind to admit
one occupies one's thoughts with what's for
dinner, what shall I do on Sunday, and how
glorious is Pop-eye the sailor.
Unless one has a delicate genius at self-
expression, admitting the thoughts listed above
is like parading one's mind in all its horrible
nakedness, and somehow, is definitely revolting.
This is our idea of what the average college
student thinks: "I think I'll have a cup of coffee. I should be at my lecture. Why did I get
on the attendance blacklist? What time is
it? Have I time to go to the library? I guess
I'll have my lunch, even if it is only 9:30. Wonder if someone will take me to the Science
Ball?" (if co-ed). "Wonder how I can get
tickets to the Science Ball?" (if artsman).
"Heh, heh" (if Scienceman).

It may be truly said that everyone

of the second and third year engineers to whom the experience was a
new one. In the future it will be up
to them to carry on and to put things
over better still.
We deeply regret that due to illness,

"When you iss old like me, Villiam
my lad," said Jimmy-the-Vatchman,
"you will see that girls iss for young
men nothing else but mice-traps. For
old men too, sometimes."
A rather startling declaration this,
for, as all the camp knew, Jimmy
was solidly and happily married.
"Mice-traps?" I asked. "Explain,
'It vouldn't be any use me explaining," sighed Jimmy, full-moon face
puckered in concentration as he stabbed yarn at a needle. "You vould
just say 'pool' and go on writing letters full up with springtime foolishness. But I vill tell you vat happened to Skyline Hagen, who iss
pretty near as ancient as the Sunday
chickens we get at the first of the
month, and what a fool a girl made
him into.
"Lena wass her name. She wass
about five feet three in her socks,
and what with eyes big as saucers
and a wiggle to her valk that wass
like a hlghrigger looking for a fight
on the First of July, she could make
effen a man of visdom like myself
puff out his chest. She wore pajamas
too, not the kind you swear in bed,
but ones with big vide legs, and Chinese dragons chasing each other
around on them.
"From the minute he saw her in
those pajamas, Skyline Hagen wass
a gone goose. He met her at Missis
Hanson's in the married Quarters; and
the night after, hi his town suit, he
strutted out from the bunkhouse.
"You iss goln' tomcattlng. Skyline?"
I asked of him.
" 1 have a date to go walking with
Lena out from the camp '," he said,
with a dignity that didn't sit on him
any so goot. And not till he wass
gone did I find he wais vearing my
special policeman's braces, and my
tie with the speckles or it around
his neck.
"And that, Villiam, wass how it
started. Before long he had Lena's
picture on the vail, and he wass to
in flatuated that he vould moo like
a cow in his sleep until somebody
voke him up with a caulked boot.
"Now, Skyline, I vill have you understand, wasn't by any means the
only boy on Lena's string. The truth
on the matter Iss, Vlllam, that what
with loaders and riggers and one
side-push, he wass well down on
the list.  And tills worried him a 'ot.
" 'Jimmy,' he said to ire one night,
'we iss good friends, you and me. So
tonight you tell Lena I got pains in
my head, and go tomcatting In my
place with her. And you tell her
what a curly wolf I is, and how in
a fight I can whip any boy in camp.'
"Veil, I wasn't crazy over the idoH,
but I vent. I told Lena just what
Skyline had said, and she listened
very interested. Then, I got all of
a sudden an inspiration. 'Look, Jimmy,' I said inside myself. 'Voman iss
funny-built people. Vy now don't
you make her jealous over Skyline?'
So I told her how he had two girls
in Courtenay and vun in Nanaimo
as veil af three in Vancouver, and
may be seme more I had forgot about
'So you see, Lena,' I finished up, '->1-
though you vouldn't effer guess it, he
iss a curly voolf of tho first water.'
I looked sidevays at Lena then, and
I saw that something had gone very
much haywire. Her nose wass all
wrinkled up like a dog's iss when
you tread with your feet on its tail.
"'Tell Skyline Hagen I don't like
curly wolfs,' she said ical snappls'.i.
'and whilst he may be a curly wolf
to his three girls in Vancouver, he is
only an ugly little weasel to me!'
"When I told Skyline vat had happened, ha sat down heavy on his bed
and began to make gurgling noises in
his neck. Then he started to talk
at me in Norvegian. I got no understanding of Norvegian, and I think
now it wass maybe just as veil. After
a while I thought I should try to
cheer him up a bit. 'She said also,
Skyline,' I told him, 'that you wass
to her an ugly little veasel.'
Skyline exploded up from his bed.
"That fixes it!' he cried. 'A weasel
is I?' He dragged out bis suitcases
and began throwing things into them
with both hands. 'A weasel—an ugly
weasel! I make her sorry. I go now
to Vancouver, where so soon as I
get my teeth fixed up, I drink myself to death.'
" 'You couldn't do it,' I said. 'There
issn't in Vancouver enough rum for
it. And vy anyway get your teeth
fixed up? You von't need them,
"He only snorted at me with his
nose, and kept right on packing. 'It
wasn't your fault, Jimmy,' ho said at
last very solemn. 'She ddin't love me
So now I give you my big Stillson
monkey wrench that you wanted, and
my special, can I got for gasoline. I
won't need them any more.'
" 1 vill keep them safe for you,
•till you get back,' •! told him, not
thinking he wass serious.
"But the next morning, away he
skipped with his big suitcase and his
little suitcase and his pecksack on
his back, to drink himself to death
in Vancouver.
"Three  veeks  went  by   and  still
he wassn't back. I began to get vor-
rled, thinking maybe that he wassn't
only talking wild. At the end of the
fourth week, I got my time and vent
down to look for him.
" "Yes, he wass here a while ago,'
they told me in one place 'but he
smashed our big mirror, and we had
t othrow him out, and in another,
'he picked with the bar-keep a fight,
and we gave him the air.' So at
last I vent to where I should havo
gone at first, Ihe calabaloose.
" 'We have here a big Svede and
two little Svedes,' they answered to
my questions, 'also a Frenchman and
two black Hunkies. But the nearest
we got to your friend issn't a red
Norwegian. Ha says he las a vild
Irishman, and that his name Iss Ho-
"Sure enough it wass Skyline, looking more than ever like a monkey
now they had got him in a cage!
"It issn't any vild Irishman, and
his name iss not Hogan,' I explained
to the officers. It iss just foolish old
Skyline Hagen from the L.L.C. that
wass jolted in love, and came down
to drink himself to death. What Iss
it he has done?'
" 'He threw out from his hotel vln-
dow six empty bottles and a palm-
tree in a pot onto the street,' they
told me, 'and ven a policeman vent
up to tell him he mustn t, he punched
him on the nose.'
"If I pay up for the damage vlll
you let him go loose?' I asked.
"'So long as you keep him out of
mischief,' they said. 'And we vill be
very glad to see the last ot him.'
"So we vent away together, and
after I had got Skyline's teeth fixed,
we vent on board the Celhosln, bound
back for camp. Now who should we
see on the boat but that girl Lenu;
she wass with Blondy Ericcson that
runs a gasboat out from Lasquiti,
and the vay she looked foolish at him
and him at her, it wass plain effen
for Skyline to see that they wass
"'Come, Skyline, I said to him, 'I
vill buy for you some salted peanuts.
You used once to like satled peanuts.'
"He ate three bags very quiet, then
he said to me, 'Jimmy, have you got
still my big monkey-wrench I gave
you, anl my special can for gasoline'?"
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I read with disgust in your last
issue, as did many other members of
Arts '37, about Councils wrangling
and eventual indecision concerning
the fate of the $47 profit which the
sophomore class made at their very
successful class party a week ago.
Instead of gainsaying the clause's obvious right to retain the hard-earned
profit of their efforts for the benefit of the class in the form of an instalment on its valedictory gift, Council should raise its hands in heartfelt
thanks to heaven that there is one
class on the campus which has not
sunk Into Ignoble lethargy but still
shows undeniable signs of spirit and
competent orangization.
In contrast to the feeble efforts of
some of the other Arts classes, one
of which cannot even get a turnout
to its class meetings, the Sophomores
went ahead and by dint of hard work
collected the necessary money to ensure a successful party. In addition
the executive decided on moderate
refreshments at a cost which would
eliminate any risk of running the
class and therefore the Alma Mater
Society into debt instead of ordering
more elaborate victuals whose cost
might have exceeded the fees collected. As things turned out, the executive collected sufficient fees to have
paid for the more expensive refreshments and a considerable profit was
thus realized.
Now the omnipotent guardians of
all student activities demonstrate their
undeniable superiority of intelligence
by questioning the right of the soph
class to put aside this $47 profit,
gained by enthusiastic class support
and careful, conservative planning on
the part of the class executive, for
the future use of the class. Does
not Council realize for one thing that
the ultimate expenditure of this
money on the class Valedictory Gift,
as suggested by the class executive
but discouraged by them, will be for
the benefit of tho university? Is not
this a worthy cause for the monetary support of a wide-awake class?
Does not Council realize for another
thing that by refusing the request
of Arts '37 they will be putting the
damper on the laudable efforts of
at least one student organization
whihe has endeavored to better itself
and the university?
But then this may be one of Council's policies and aims. If so they
will have no better opportunity of
demonstrating this praiseworthy policy than by turning down the out-

Chickens To
Help Science
Those who climb the stairs to the
fourth floor of the Science Building
may be wondering about the buckets
of blood, thousands of test-tubes and
army of technicians that Inhabit a
certain lab. in that region. Well, the
explanation is simple. A few years
bgo there was discovered* in some uf
the chicken flocks throughout the
cuontry a disease referred to as
B.W.D. or bacillary white diahorrea.
This affliction was found to be caused
by an organism (germ to you) salmonella pullorum. The diease is now
more elegantly colled "pullorum disease."
At test has been devised ny re*
search workers whereby this chicken
destroyer can be detected ln affected
birds. These birds are killed, thereby preventing them spreading the disease to ethers. The organism is not
only spread by contaminated food
and litter; the yolks from Infected
bens may contain the bacillus, and
the chick hatched from the egg will
thus have the disease. The work is
being done now, before the hatching
season, so that all chicks hatched this
year in the Lower Fraser Valley will
be free from pullorum disease. This
disease is not pathogenic to humans.
The test is carried out as follows:
From every bird in the flock is taken
about 2cc. of blood. A good bleeder
can do about TOO birds a day. Tho
blood is shipped to tho laboratory
and when the serum is separated, one
drop of it is placed in a test-tube.
Then the "antigen" (a thick soup of
dead pullorum bacilli) is added, and
the whole business placed in an incubator at 37 degrees C. for 24 hours
and then at room temperature for a
Now comes the ticklish reading.
The tubes are hold agarist the light,
and if there is a slight flocculation
in the bottom of the tube, the bird
from which the *erum comes has the
disease. It is called a "reactor" and
the poultryman is notified at once.
He removes her and any other reactors from hi3 flock. The test '.s
refered to as the "agglutination test,"
because the blood of an infected bird
produces "agglutinins" which, when
mixed with the antigen, cause the
clumping of the bacilli in the antigen.
About 2400 of these ter.ts are carried out on the fourth floor each day.
Hence the buckets of blood. Mr. R.
W. Zavitz of Ottawa is in charge of
the performance, and Dr. E. A. Bruce
of Saanich supervises the actual testing. This is carried out in the laboratory of Mr. J. Biely. The Bacteriology Department of the University has lent lab. facilities for the
work.—R. S.

joy of a reporter, will express them
all. When several prominent campus

He didn't return until ths fall of 1933,
and intends to stay anothei year and
finish off. That is, if he doesn't
head for China in the meantime .   .
His favorite sport is "grandstand

Cruel Fate Crushes Home Girl
In Great City
By Jim Beveridge
The old, sad story of Jenny Smith-
ers, a home girl drawn from the farm
by the lure of city life, "Against
Fate," by Mrs. Gasper McGuffey, unfolds a moving story.
Depressed by the drudgery of life
on the farm, wayward Jenny boards
the milk-train for Chicago. There,
she finds work as a cloak-model, and
man types of men who dazzle her
with their attentions. Attracted by
the handsome Ross Farnham with his
fine carriage, debonair manner, and
black mustachlos, she embarks on a
gay life of concerts, drives in the
park, and Champagne.
Alas—to Ross, Jenny is but a passing fancy, a gilded bauble. He leaves
her. Then comes the smashing climax, which we must not tell here—
suffice to say, she is shifted from
job to job, through the rain, lower
and lower, her clothes becoming more
and more threadbare and dismal. At
news of her fate, her father (Mr.
Smithers) shoots himself hi the cowshed, and her mother takes in washing.
There is a wealth of dramatic narrative, homely philosophy, and good,
sound advice for growing boys and
girls, in "Against Fate."   Mrs. Mc-
Guffye's story moves against a rich
canvas  of  brownstone   houses   and
family entrances, and hw style is at
once homespun and sympathetic.
A book for every father, mother,
son,   daughter,   and  visiting   cousin
from Columbus, Ohio.

says there is no such person.
He thinks the Student Council

he will never be a successful reporter
because he can't lie well enough.
Drives a Baby Austin and spends
spare time in historical research. In
connection with this he is drawing
some maps showing Spanish voyages
along the B.C. coast.
When our interview with the Crab
was through, we made the remark,

"All I hope," he said, "Is that you
don't get any more."
Which suggests a double life.

Varsity Ruggers
Blank Ex-Magee
While Grads Hold Blacks 3-3
By Alan Morley
"Can Varsity take the All-Blacks?" that is the question of
the day in rugby circles. Last Saturday's Brockton battles left
the Thunderbirds just one point behind the North Shore team,
which has not been defeated in two years.
If the Blue and Gold defeats the<$ 	
Blacks when they meet next week,!
they will be at the head of the league
for the first time hi many a long day,
and can safely be counted on to hold
that advantage till the end of the
season, a3 their few remaining battles will be with much Inferior
One Point Behind
This opportunity comes as a result
of the Thunderbird victory over Ex-
Magee, coupled with the epic Occasional draw with the Blacks, which
confirmed the student second place
position, advancing them to one small
point behind the leaders, and two
ahead of the Grads.
The Varsity-Ex-Magee clash was
touted as a walk-over for the Blue,
but the Exes stiffened up above their
usual form to keep the score down
to 8-0. The Thunderbird attack contributed to this low aggregate by
taking their work in less serious fashion than usual. The marvellous form
which they have shown for the past
three months was not in evidence,
perhaps due to the individual play
of their opponents, which they countered with equally ragged rushes.
The Scoring
The scoring came in the first half
of the first half. A beautiful run by
Roberts, who passed near the line
to Mercer scored, and was converted
by Mitchell. Roxy the Pacer slid
through the MaEee defense in his
usual effortless style for the second,
which was not converted.
Micthell's convert of '.ho first tiy
was a thriller, the ball hitting the
bar, hesitating while tne crowd held
its breath, and finally deciding to go
From then on ihe game was a scries o£ presses by the students, relieved by furious dashes by the Magee forwards. Varsity had the better
of the play but failed to score again.
The Occasional-All-Black game
came next, and it was a game. Tha
White Shirts duplicated the Thunderbird feat of holding the Unconquerable Niggers to a draw, mulcting
htem of the second point which they
have lost in two years.
The form charts are confusion when
it comes to estimating Varsity's
chance to take the lead in the cup
race. They drew with thc Blacks before they developed the great teamwork which has shown up in their
last few battles, yet yesterday's performance was disappointing. They
beat the Occasionals 8-3 a week ago,
and all the Blacks could do was hold
the Grads to a draw, yet the North
Shores swamped hte Ex-Magee team
by 16-3 last week, and all the Blue
ond Gold could make it was 8-0.
So it looks like a toss up. At any
rate, it will bo thc "crooshial" clash
of the season, and should produje
the finest display of skill and fight
that has been seen in the land for
years and years, \1 ever.
As a place of entertainment and
thrill, I recommend Brockton Point
next Saturday as tho ultimate offering.
Considering the record of the Varsity Ruggers, the popuhuify of the
Brockton games among connoisseurs
of sport, and the paucity of student
supporters in the stands, we believe
It would not be amiss if the Athletic
Solons came out of their "lnter-col-
legiate" self-hypnotism and gave the
boys at least aa favorable a break as
they gave the hard-working but lamentably futile Canuck squad last fall.
A few special busses and a ticket
selling campaign would go a long
way toward making amends to the
most successful athletic combination
on the campus, which has carried on
gallantly in the face of the deliberate
neglect and partisan opposition of the
powers that be.

Varsity and Columbia Hotel Archie
MacDougall scored one of the best
goals of the season to hand Varsity

Cross Country
Scheduled For
Tomorrow 3.15
The most important individual race
of the year is to be run tomorrow.
The Cross-Country race, which was
won last year by Phil Northcott, is
to start horn in front of the Libraty
at 3:15. The rest of (lie difficult
course was dvnvn in a map in th :
Ubyssey  a  few  issues ago.
There will le a new champion
crowned in this race since Northcott
will not be in at the start. Among
the favorites u cop tho first places
are George Sinclair, Leo Gansner,
and George Allen. Olners in ihe
race include Beach, Irwin, Orr, Lee-
son, and representatives from Anglican and Union Theological Collgees.
The Arts '20 relay race is scheduled for next Wednesday. It is an
Inter-Class relay to be run over a
course which will be shown in a
map in the next itrue of the Ubyssey.
Last year it was won by the "Wonder Class" of Arts '34. All classes
are urged by the Track Club to get
their teams together as soon as possible.    Every  class  must  enter.
Cecil Wright announces that for
the Monday and. Friday practices
which the club are holding from now
on Coach Percy Williams will bo out.
There is apparently a lack of personnel for fie'd cents, but anyon\
interested should be at the Cym at
3:15 Friday.
Archie MacDougall
the penalty area from where he let
loose a terrific drive that gave Stefan!
no chance.
While MacDougall was the spearhead of the Blue and Gold attack,
scoring the other two goals as well,
the whole team were on their toes
Saturday. They had to be. The Columbians had the double incentive of
revenge for last week's loss, and a
place in the second round of the competition, and they made the going
hard all the way. Despite the heavy
mud on the Cambie Street pitch, thc
game produced seme fast and pleasing football, and was keenly contested.
MacDnugall's first goal came mid-
! way through tho first clan/a a.s he
picked u;> a pa.-:; through centre from
Laurie Todd and sent a low drive
out of the goalie's reach. There was
no further scoring before the interval.
Fifteen minutes after the crossover, Archie tallied his second from
a scramble in thc goal mouth following Stewart's shot. Then for twenty
minutes Varsity peppered the Hotel
goal, but sensational work by the defence kept them at bay. Then it was
Columbia's turn, and Marino followed
up a shot by Larsen to kick the ball
out of Greenwood's hands into the
net for the Italian's first goal.
The pressure on the Thunderbird's
defence continued, and in less th?n
five minutes the same player cut
through the defence to put a harC.
shot into the corner. A few minutes
later came MacDougall's third goal
as described. This put new heart into the tiring Collegians, and they
speeded up again to end the game on
the attack,

Varsity's high hopes for a bye Into
the play-offs went glimmering Saturday when they lost a wild game
to Province, or rather to Bumstead.
The big Newsie forward scored just
20 of his teams 36 points. Adding In-
suit to injury, he scored two foul
shots in the last seconds to tie the
score and send the game into overtime.
Adanacs Take Bye
Adanacs, by virtue of their uninspiring 18-14 win in the second game,
earned the bye, and Varsity will
meet the Province team, in the semifinals of the play-offs.
The game was fairly even throughout, with Varsity having a slight edge
on play. The Thunderbirds took the
lead when Willoughby sank his first
shot. A basket by Henderson and a
foul shot by Bardsley brought Varsity's total to five, but this lead was
soon wiped out by the Province boys.
With the score vat 5-5 Wright came or.
the floor and sank two long beauties.
Province took control for the next
few minutes and took a 15-12 lead,
chiefly on Bumstead's y'ay. Varsity
came back and had a 21-18 lead at
half time. Province tied the score
several times in the second half, but
they never went ahead of the Thunderbirds until hit j in tho overtime
Bumstead Again
Two baskets by Henderson, and
one by Bardsley put Varsity in a five-
point lead at 27-22. Buiistead went
to work again and cut th: lead with
two nice baskets. A foul shot by
Bardsley was followed by a basket
by "Red" McDonell, to tie the score
at 28-28. Bardsley put Varsity ahead
again with a nice one-hand shot.
Wright was banished on four fouls,
and Helem sank the resulting free
shot. Everything was going well for
Varsity as the game neared the end
They were up two big points, until
Bumstead camo along and sank his
two foul shots to tie the score at full
Varsity's only score during the
overtime was a foul shot by Pringle,
while Helem bettered this by sinking a rebound to give the Newsies
the game 36-35.
Bardsley and Pringle were the big
shots for the Thunderbirds. Bugs collected 13 points while Henny got 8
besides holding Purves to two foul
shots. Bumstead did all the high
scoring for Province, his 20 points
being far above Helem'.': 6, which
was thc next highest score for Province.
