Tom McKeown Named For Rhodes
Chem. Grad. Chosen By Committee
Winner Hat Made Important Contributions
To Science
Announcement was made at one o'clock yesterday morning of the new Rhodes Scholar. He is Thomas McKeown, 22
year old son of Mr. and Mrs. William McKeown, 698 Eleventh
Avenue, Burnaby.
After a five-hour final session the selection committee,
consisting of Col. Sherwood Lett, Mayne D. Hamilton, Professor Larsen, Col. Logan, Dr. Brewing, Judge Howay, and B. C.
Nicholas, made their choice from seventeen applicants for the
Thomas McKeown, who follows^
Patrick McTaggert-Cowan as British
Columbia's Rhodes scholar to Oxford, received his early education at
Edmonds public and South Burnaby
High schools, holding in the latter
student offices, and being active in
many branches of athletics.
Won McGill Fellowship
The new Rhodes Scholar graduated
from the University of British Columbia in 1832, with first class honours
in chemistry. His graduation thesis
was published ln the Canadian Medical Journal. He was at this time
awarded a McGill fellowship, which
was renewed the following year. In
his four years at this University, McKeown was prominent in (he Chemistry Society, and took a large part in
inter-class sport.
Going east to McGill in the fall of
1932, he devoted himself tc research
work ln the fle'd of bio-chemistry,
working towards a degree of Ph.D.
H# will have completed the work for
this degree in thc coming spring. His
work at McGill has been concerned
chiefly with Endocrinology, a department of medical research.
Several Papers Published
This fall McKeown was awarded a
National Research Council Scholarship, and also a McGill Demonstratorship. He has had several other papers published bv medical and scientific journals, and his work has been
described before the Royal Society of
Canada. During the time he was at
McGill he addressed the World Phy-
silogical Congress at New York.
At Oxford McKeown intends to
study for his MD. degree, and on his
return to Canada to continue with
medical research.
A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at
the University of Oxford, and may
be held for three years. The stipend
for the scholarrhip is fixed at £400
a year. To be eligible a candidate
must be a British subject, must have
lived for at least five years in Canada, must be unmarried, and between
nineteen and twenty-five years of
age. He must have completed at least
two years at the university for which
he is appointed.
The choice is made with regard to
literary and scholastic attainments;
fnodness for and success in sports;
qualities of manhood, truth, courage,
etc.; and exhibition of qualities of

World Of Microbe
Usir? a microscope, test-tubes, and
other ab equipment, and even an
explosicn to illustrate his point—Professor D\ C. B. Duff, of the Department of iWteriology, led the Vancouver Institute on Saturday through the
intricasies of "Microbe Hunting."
The explosion, coming tt the close
of the lecture, was, howovcr. unpre-
mediated and altogether unexpected.
Fortunately, it did no visible damage
but gave the audience rather a startling thrill.
"Tho appearance of a microbe under the microscope gives us little clue
to its exact classification."' stated Dr.
Duff, explaining that chemical experiments played a large part in identification.
The speaker next discussed the
means of determining tho presence of
typhoid bacilli. To shew that the majority of bactorn: are perfectly harmless. Dr. Duff quaffed a teaspoonfut
of water, which contained, lie said,
100.00(1.00(1 niicroh'S—some of which
were so small thai they could not he

Victoria Invasion
To Be Considered
At A.M.U.S. Meet
In accordance with their decision
of last month, a meeting of the Arts
Men's Undergraduate Society will be
held on Wednesday noon in Arts 100.
Subjects to be discussed will be the
Stadium and the projected revival of
the annual Victoria Invasion.
It may be thought in several quarters that the Stadium Swimming Pool
has been the subject of quite sufficient discussion, but the well known
and justly celebrated executive
(Whimpy, Crab, Shaneman and Co.),
declare that they have a project concerning it which they will pull out
of the same hat that contained the
Arts Ball, and which, if the supine
Artsmen respond, will rebound greatly to the honor and glory of that organization.
Reviving the Old Spirit
The Victoria Invasion, which was
so prominent a feature of Varsity life
in the old days, is in process of being
revived (if not prematurely squelched
by the Faculty or tho Students
In its new guise, it will be a one-
day boat excursion with McKechnie
Cup rugby, swimming, track, basketball and any other sports that can
obtain competition, sending teams to
compete against cither Victoria College or Victort.i City teams.
This will make a glorious day in
the place where you follow the birds
to and should be eked out by a ciance
on the return trip. It is planned for
either Jen. 12 or 19. and hopes are
held that the whole menu can be provided for about three bucks return
plus spending money in the Capitol
Thc above nvntioned executive
hope to get the A.M.U.S, behind the
proposal, except that it is rumoured
that tho president has a disinclination to reverse himself on a previous
stand, being one of thv parties responsible for the cancellation of the
function   in  '"onmr  days.
The tieasuior is also expected to
publicly confess 'with fear and trembling' the amount of the deficit on tho
Arts Bali.
Pacifism Triumphs As Britons
Defeat U.B.C. in Debate Friday
Emotion Opposed To Reason In Contest
War Questionnaire
Reflects Interest
Shown By Students
Over four hundred answers were
received to the recent war questionnaire. The results show that students
are thinking seriously about the present day problem of war and peace.
Nearly half the answers state that
there will always be war, no matter
what attempts are made to bring
about peace.
If Canada declared war, many students would refuso military but would
render humanitarian service. A great
many would oppose war by organizing mass protests and petitions. Only
a few would refuse to pay taxes or
engage in a general strike.
In order to promote peace, students
suggest abolition of armaments and
investigation into the private manufacture of munitions.
Most of the answers stated that
war was justifiable for Canada only
when this country is invaded. Very
few endorsed the League of Nations
or would support Great Britain in
case of war.
28.7 percent of the answers stated
that they would refuse all military
service. Many others advocated the
abolition of war pictures in churches,
schools and theatres.
Detailed results of some of the more
important questions are as follows:
"Do you beiievo there will always
be wars?"
Rumour has it that the Alumni Association's Ball will be
held on Dec. 27 in the congenial atmosphere of the Commodore. Tickets to be Issued,
will cost $2.00 per couple.
Yes   54.7 percent
No   39.3 percent
"War is not justifiable for Canada
under any circumstances."
Yes   27.8 percent
No   72.2 percent
"If war was declared I would refuse all service."
Yes   28.7 percent
No   71.3 percent
Endorsing a World Court
    32 percent
Endorsing thc League of Nations   40 percent
Abolition of arms.. 44 percent
Investigation into the private
manufacture of munitions

office. The results will be forwarded

Genius Of Shakespeare
Interpreted By Leiber
If the British nation had produced
nothing but W.'lliam Shakespeare it
could well have rested in peace and
quiet declared Fritz Lteber to an enthusiastic audience which packed
Arts 100 lecture room. We are en-
clined to place Shakespeare on a pe;
destal away out of sight; we forget
that Shakespeare was a man.
You need not hear tho lines, declared Mr. Leiber, Shakespeare kept
constantly before him tho necessity
of appealing to the eye of the spectator. Throughout his address Mr.
Leiber aptly illustrated his remarks
by samples of his art. Ibsen has very
little action while Shakespeare does
things, said Mr. Leiber.
An actor can feel 'emotions and can
be a judge of what Shakespeare really
meant, declared Mr. Leiber. When I
play lago at 4 o'clock in thc afternoon
I get nasty to my wife or when I play
Othello I feel so noble I get tired of
It is stupid to have Shakespeare el-
ocuted and orated: Shakespeare is for
tho stage. It was a pure accident of
his genius tha. he became a classic,
said Mr. Leiber,
Acting is thinking on the stage. It
is not necessary to dhc.i ihc attention
of the audience to the attraction or
to explain  it.
The genius of Shakespeare was so
embracing that in spite of his medium of blank verse he was able to
create men and women who were
true to human nature. William
Shakespeare is a great and eternal
gift to  the stage and the woidd.
"High school and University students should not attempt to produce
complete Shakespearean plays," stated
Fritz Leiber in an interview with a
Ubyssey reporter on Monday. "It is
impossible for students, unless they
are exceptionally good, to keep up the
dramatic tension through a play such
as "Hamlet." But I do think that all
universities should produce scenes
such as the Trial Scene in "The Merchant of Venice."
According to Mr. Leiber, American
students are very interested in their
Shakespeare; studies. "When we play
in a university town," said the well-
known actor, "we find that the su-
dents turn out in better numbers than
the adults,"
In these times, Mr. Leiber believes
the hardest tiling for a Shakespearean
company to do, is fill tho orchestra
seats. People are interested, but not
able to pay the fancy prices that arc
asked for the hotter scats. It is no
longer the rabble that sit in the
"gods." but many .people who could j
not otherwise see the plays.
Asked if he thought the modern
day of speed and flash would kill j
Shakespeare, Mr. Leiber was emphatic in his denial. "Shakespeare", he
said, "cannot be killed. He is like
the sun, you may push him under a
a cloud, but he always re-appears in
greater glory and power."— D. R. B.
"It is governments and vested interests, not nations and
people, that cause war," stated Leslie Tumour Jackson when
he opened the case for the winning team in the imperial debate
last Friday evening in the Crystal Ballroom o! the Hotel Vancouver.
Mr, Jackson continued by pointing out that Pacifism is not
only a possible creed but the only human and natural one.
<$> "Does my honorable opponent really
think it impossible for the people of
a nation to be courageous enough to
refuse to fight for the government,
vested interests, and armament manufactures of that nation? Ramsay
MacDonald didn't think so in 1914 and
they are many more, who don't think
so in 1934. If Pacifism was possible
then, it Is even more possible now,"
declared the Cambridge man.

Debate Features
Ridicule and Wit
Pacifist Not a Coward
"I myself am a pacifist and I believe in serving my country by living
for it, not by fighting and dying for
it. It takes more courage to go to
prison and be labelled a coward than
to follow a brass band to the front,"
concluded Mr. Jackson.
John Sumner, loader of the affirmative, showed that not only is pacifism impossible in a military sense but
also in economic and personal conflicts.
Both Sides for Peace
"This side of the house wants peace
just as much as the other side, Mr.
Speaker, but we of the affirmative
do not believe that peace can be obtained b> a pacifistic, do-nothing policy. On the contrary, we stand for
a do-something policy, a policy of
preparedness and international policing," continued the leader of the
U.B.C. team.   ~" ""*""
"Did Britain find it possible to be
a pacifist economically in the midst
of   a   nationalistic   tariff   war?    No,
she had to abandon free trade  and
Rebuttal   by   ridicule,   a   sense   of fight for business success!" maintained
humour shown by extemporaneous retort, and sincerity of speech were the |
good points which our friends from
Oxford and Cambridge displayed
when they defeated us by a 2-1 decision of the judges.
Visitors Not Out To Win
This quality of debating which I
call rebuttal by ridicule, is a distinct
mark of an English debater. The
time when a former English team
discussed with us the question,
"Should the empire follow the Moscow road?" this quality was even
more noticeable. The soft, accented,
cultured voice of an English debater
permits him to indulge ln this act of
pointing with laughter and contempt
at his honourable opponent whereas
if an average American were to try
it he would be considered unparliamentary.
After John Sumner had extended a
welcome to the visitors and given the
opening speech of the debate, the
Cambridge man replied with ridicule: "It didn't take us long to get
to know Mr. Sumner] now you know
him too."
The visitors from the old land were
better orators than debaters. Unlike
the American team from Bates' College who hurled point after point and
fact after fact at the chair in order
to insu.e victory; the Englishmen, accustomed as they are to no-decision
debating and friendly discussion, preferred to speak with sincerity stating
their own personal views even when
by so doing they were evading the
resolution and contradicting one another.
Conway Good
Although all the speeches were below the usually high standard of international debuting, Jack Conway
proved to be a forceful and pleasing
speaker as was shown audibly hy the
audience when, in. opening his speech.
he replied so effectively to the points
of the negative.
Here, it might be considered a little
unparliamvntly to continually refer
to a speaker on the other side of Ihe
house as "he"; not so at Oxford evidently, for their man was guilty of
this offence.—-tf.
the first speaker of the affirmative.
Next War To Be In B.C.
Conway claimed that the imminent
conflict between Japan and the U.S.A.
would be right here in British Columbia. He oskvd the opposition if
they realized that America was considering the building of a militaristic
highway through B.C. to connect with
and fortify her territories in the
"Will it be possible for us to be
pacifistic and let them fight it out
here without any protest from ourselves? Did Belgium find it possible
to be neutral and pacifistic ln 1914?
What would have happened if she
had tried? Conway asked scornfully.
"If we were to be thus invaded, I
challenge my opponents to prove that
Britain would not come to our aid as
we came to her in 1914!" exclaimed
U.B.C.'s most experienced international debater.
Widened Definition
Robertson Crichton of Oxford, the
final speaker, claimed it fair to include the use of force for peace and
international policing in the definition of pacifism. If one accepted his
definition, then of course the B.C.
team had no case or possibility of
"Pacifism is no longer a passive
creed, but an active one which seeks
to cut at the very roots of war by
any means available," even by force,"
maintained tho Oxford man.
He suggested that the way to face
the Japanese menace is not through
discussion of war, but through friendly understandings and intercourse
such as offering to help them in workout  thair problems.

"Ot iap» cso oana
We herewith wish to acknowledge what has
been pointed out to us as an unfair practice.
At least twice this fall members of the staff,
through their advantage of having access to
copy before it goes to the printers, have answered letters to the editor in the same issue
in which they appeared. We will not allow
this to occur again, and therefore we hope that
letter-writers will not be discouraged by what
has occured in the past. But we do hope that
they will try to condense their views as much
as possible, on account of both the space limitations of the Ubyssey, and the greater effectiveness of a concise argument.
The    V\A.L"r\U5
By Nancy Miles
From the Campus
Garbage Can
It is not the policy of the Ubyssey to publish fraternity news or to bring the fraternity
question to the attention of its readers in such
a way as to make the non-fraternity members
feel that they are being left out of things. But
very soon the matter of rushing will be one
of great importance to many freshmen, and
during the three weeks following the Christmas exams they will have to make their final
decision on this problem. It has been the general experience in the past that freshmen just
don't "know the score" with regard to fraternities, but it is hoped that under the advantages
of the new modified system of fall rushing they
will now be in a position to judge the various
groups on the campus quite impartially from
all viewpoints*
To the rushee we would say, you cannot
hope to make an intelligent choice if you listen
only to what the members of one fraternity tell
you of other chapters on the campus. Get the
point of view of the latter also and then by
summing up what you are told and what you
have observed for yourself, make your decision with the careful consideration which it
Pugilistic Dept.
The forthcoming Bouchette-Butterfield em-
broglio should have its points. It should be
very worth while to see these two erudite gentlemen, stripped of the transitory glory of
lounge suits, fedoras, and overcoats, shorted,
gloved and resined. Not to mention the fight.
It's all in a worthy cause too, for Santa
Claus. If that good gentleman should attend in
person, we express the pious hope he will not
die laughing, although it would save many parents the construction of non-waterproof alibis.
Mr. Bouchette overlooked an opportunity
in being the challengee, which is also topical,
and relevant to the death of Sir Donald Mann
in Victoria last week.
It seems that the challengee in a duel always has the choice of weapons. An old Spanish custom.
Sir Donald Mann many years ago was in
China on business, this was before he was Sir
Donald, and to some people he was merely that
"bumptious Canadian."
He got into words with a Russian aristocrat of the Old School, and in the heat of the
moment over-expressed himself in the matter
of the ancestory of the Russian.
The'Russian issued a challenge to a duel,
which challenge Sir Donald felt it prudent to
accept since he was over there on business
which was not completed.
He looked up the matter of customs in
duelling, and found to his great joy that the
challengee could choose the weapons. That simplified the matter.
He sent around word to the Russian that
he was pleased to accept and would meet him
.at dawn the next morning. "The weapons," he
said firmly, "will be broad-axes."
These, he explained, are Canada's national
The Russian, excusably apprehensive of being even slightly pinked by a broad-axe, decided the matter was not so serious after all,
and called the whole thing off.
With this issue the staff of the Ubyssey
breathes a sigh of relief and abandons itself
to the luxury of uninterrupted studies. We realize that we have made mistakes and have deserved criticism at times, and we have welcomed and tried to benefit by the latter. But
under the difficult conditions which surround
the publication of a college paper by students
who are also trying to keep up with their academic work, the staff has done its best.
And although we hope that our readers will
continue to offer criticisms and suggestions
when they see fit, we nevertheless still have
our "esprit de corps" and a certain amount of
conceit, and so we are still unconvinced that
we are any worse than our critics individually.
And we still believe that we can clean up
Council at anything from ping-pong to basketball!
Pathos Dept.
This belongs also in the strictly true department. One day two weeks ago an optician
had a call from a messenger boy with a little
package and a note.
He opened the little package first and found
it contained a sparkling blue eye, glass, of
"Please make a bloodshot effect on this eye,
my other one looks that way after a binge,
and when the glass one is clear people laugh
at me."

Two Important Rugby Qamnies Dec, 25th and 29th
Many Stars To
Choose From
In Eng* Code
Roxborough and Dobbie Have Tough Time
Choosing Team
Never in the history of any sport at the University of British Columbia has there been such a large number of outstanding players in one branch of athletics as there is at the present
time in English Rugby. Even the great Baron Munchausen
would be stumped at finding suitable adjectives to describe the
athletic prowess of the twenty-five odd men now attempting
to obtain a position on the first string English Rugby team.
All year in English Rugby the
Thunderbirds have been fielding a
bang-up team. In total number of
points obtained they are third in the
league standing, only two points be?
hind  the  league leading champion
ship North Short All Blacks. Last
Saturday they rolled up a 20-3 victory
against Ex-Brlttannla, one of the biggest margin of defeats established by
any team this year.
California Game To Be Played December 29
All year the competition for positions on the first string squad has
been Intense. But now with the advent of several Cnadian Rugby stars,
Coach Dobbie and Captain Roxborough aro literally tearing their hair
in an endeavor to choose the best
fifteen men from the available material. During the Christmas holidays
the Bluo and Cold squad will play
two important matches. On Christmas day the students take on the
Vancouver Reo side in ths first McKechnie Cup game of the year. On
Dec. 29, the Varsity team will clash
with an all-star aggregation from the
Universities  of  California,   Southern
California, Stanford and the University of California at Los Angeles.
The two games mentioned above
and one to take place on Jan 9 in
Victoria against the Victoria Rep
squad are tho three major encounters of this year's English Rugby
schedule. If present plans are fulfilled the English Rugby squad hope
to make the Victoria game part of a
Victorian Invasion. In an endeavour
to insure a jood crowd of students
at the Christmas day game student
tickets will be sold on the campus
starting the latter part of this week.
These tickets will be 35c.
Tom Roxborough
This dark, moutached gentleman is
well known to English Rugby fans as
"Roxy." Last year with All Blacks,
he is now playing for Varsity. He
was elected captain some time ago
when Hobby Oaul resigned.
McKechnie Cup

Teams In December
The Christmas holidays this year will not be by any mean*
a period of rest for the Senior English Rugby teams. According
to the settlement reached at Wednesday's meeting of the B.C.
Rugby Union, a team representing four American Colleges will
trayel to Vancouver during the holidays to meet a representative Vancouver squad and a team representing the University
of B.C. The Thunderbird game is to take place on December
29. Besides this series, the Blue and Gold team will play a
McKechnie Cup game. Christmas Day is the date set for this
Canadian Rugby Stars Play For English Team
Besides the usual players who have
been trying out for positions in ths
backfield all year there are three
new recruits from Canadian Rugby.
They are Ed. Kendall, Art Willoughby
and Joe Roberts. The scrum men
have another new candidate for a
job in Ed. Senkler, beefy scienceman
who has up till now been playing
Canadian Rugby. On another part of
the page will be found not too personal personals about the men from
whom the team will be selected. Look

Thunderbirds Take Early Lead     ,
Before a packed crowd, U.B.C. took the Victoria track meet
beating the Victoria "Y" by a total score of 52-32. The meet,
sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, was held in the Armories. Bill
Stott of U.B.C. turned in the highest individual score, with
12% points, followed closely by Joe Addison of Victoria, with
Coach Percy Williams accompanied the team, and took
charge of the starting, which was somewhat new to the Varsity
team, as they started from homemade blocks on the asphalt
Easily the most outstanding eventf
was the mile run. Leo Gansner led
most of the way, till Cunningham
passed him in the first part of the last
lap. With a last minute sprint, Gansner regained his position, and led at
the tape by two or three yards.
McCammon Good
Jim McCammon, showing his usual
form, took the shot put easily, heaving the iron apple 47 feet, 6 inches,
about two feet further than the top
throw made at the school meet in
Australia a short time ago. Second
was taken by Tnomson of Victoria,
with a throw of 38 feet.
In the mile relay, Addison of Victoria led Max Stewart all through the
first three laps, but Max made a surprise finish, and passed the tape a
good 5 yards ahead of Addison.
Every man on U.B.C.'s team contributed to the steadily mounting
score in one way or another. Points
were awarded 5, 3 and 1, with 6 for

Team Weakened By Injuries
There is no longer an unbeaten
team of Thunderbirds. Saturday afternoon at loco, the Soccer eleven
gave away two goals to the fast stepping Imperials, and with them went
the game, Varsity's unbeaten record,
and two places in the league standings.
The score was 2-1 for the Oilmen,
and just about represents the edge
loco held. While the Collegians performed creditably as individuals, there
was a deplorable lack of team work
which kept ths team as a whole from
making such headway against the
rushing type of fame played by loco.
The main fault lay with the forwards,
who failed to perform as a line at
any one time, with the halves also
to blame for the lack of accurate
passing to the wings and MacDougall
at centre. It must be said, however,
that the loco pitch was small enough
to seriously hamper the Thunderbirds
in using their open passing game, and
to favour the imperials' kick and rush
type of play.
No Score in first Half
The first half went scoreless, with
loco having most of the attack, but
being foiled by smart work on the
part of Greenwood and the Varsity
defence. However, five minutes after
the interval, Babcock, the winners'
centre forward, broke through on his
own to open the scoring.
The Oilers continued their rushes,
but good defensive work kept them
at bay until Babcock scored a rather
fortunate goal with a chance header
that caught Greenwood out of position.
With a two goal lead, loco settled
down to bottle up the Varsity attacks ]
and packed their defence whenever)
the Thunderbirds looked dangerous.
However, Thurber put Kozoolin away
on the left wing, the latter crossing
into the goal-mouth for MacDougall
to score the prettiest goal of the game
with a first time shot. Efforts to
obtain the equalizier were fruitless.
The team: Greenwood; Sutherland,
Legg; Thurber. Wolfe, Quail; Irish,
Munday, MacDougall, Stewart, D.
Todd; Sub., Kozoolin.
Jim McCammon
The above husky young man is one
of the big reasons why the Thunderbirds were victorlouq against Victoria
on Friday. He is here seen in the
act of tossing sixteen pounds of lead
a mere forty-eigh*. or so feet through
the air.
The Annual Moet with the University of Washington has been scheduled for Jan. 19, in the Washington
Athletic Club Pool. All those wishing
to make a place on the team must

Seven Games Planned
The Christmas holidays will see the
Senior "A" basketball team on two
short tours of Northern Washington.
The first will take place between
Christmas and New Year'" Day; the
second in the first week of January.
Two of the toughest teams in the
State are to oppose the Thunderbirds
on thair holiday jaunts, if the arrangements made by Fred Bolton,
president of Men's Athletics, hold
out. They are Ellensburg Normal,
rated second only to the U. of W.
Huskies in Washington) last year, and
the Washington Frosh.
Leaving  here  on   Dec.  27,   Varsity
will  play  Ellensburg  the  next  day,
and Yakima Junior College on Dec.
29,   before  re*urning  homo   for   the
New Year's celebrations.    After this
brief rest, they will ortce more head
south,  to meet tho Pacific Lutheran
College twice on Jan. 2 and 3,  and
indicentally to pain sweet vengeance
for   a   couple   of  football   games;   to
tackle  the  College  of  Puget  Sound,
also football conquerors, on the following two clays; and finally to tangle
with the Washineton Frosh. as a preliminary to tho Idaho-Huskies game.
Return  games ure  expected with  all
these in the first two months of 1935.

Adanacs Win
32*29 Over
Adanacs Now Top oi League
Adanacs journeyed to the Varsity
gym Saturday to defeat thi Thunderbirds by a score of 32 to 29. This
bare statement of facts gives the result of a basketball game that was
one of the most exciting that has
been played in the gym this year.
Half time found Varsity trailing the
Adanacs by ten joints, but it was
only due to tho Adanacs' water-tight
defensive play that they were able
to repel Varsity s courageous second-
half rally, led by Jimmy Bardsley.
Adanacs Take Lead
Ross took first blood for Varsity by
scoring on a penalty, but from this
point the Adanacs' superior passing
made them dominate the play and
they enjoyed a ten point lead at half
time, despite close checking by Willoughby and Henderson. Chiefly due
to Wally Mayers, Adanacs' star forward player, Varsity's attempts to get
in close to their opponets' basket were
frustrated whilst practically all their
long shots went astray. The first half
closed with the Adanacs having 17
points to Varsitv'i. 7.
Vanity Rallies
Shortly after the opening of the
second half Bardsley went ori a scoring spree, sinking three baskets in
rapid succession, then making three
consecutive free shots count to put
Varsity within two points of the Adanacs. From this time on to the final
whistle, the game- was "touch and
go" with the Adanacs tenaciously
clinging to their lead, and Varsity
battling desperately to overcome it.
First one side and then the other
would score, but though the Adanacs
were unable to further their lead,
Varsity could not overcome it, and
the game ended with the final score
32-29 in the Adanacs' favour.
The Varsity girls put up a stubborn
struggle before they were defeated
making the game an interesting one.
The games, which were well attended, were followed by a very good
dance on the gym floor, for which
most of the audience stayed.

Evidently last week's marvellous form was no flash in the

game. In fact, a recruit from the late American team, Joe

Forty-Six Players Report
With a large turnout at the first
meeting this year, on Thursday, the
Hockey Club showed promise of being one of the most enthusiastic Sport
Organizations nn the campus.
Fred Bolton took charge of the
meeting during the election of officers, v/hich resulted in Gordon Livingstone being elected president;
Maurice Lambert, who was largely
responsible for the organization of
the club, was elected secretary-treasurer, and Bill Lea was chosen vice-
Although all the Science Hockey-
sist (getting in trim for tha Arts-Science game) were absent, there were
46 players present, coming from as
far East as Duluth, Michigan. About
30 of these players wero under 20,
and it was decided to enter the Junior Playoffs at thc end of the season.
After much discussion, it was found
that thc most suitable time for practices was Sunday mornings; sucond
choice being weekday evenings between fix and seven. Deatils of procuring (he time ; nd the place of the
practices were left to Maurice Lambert, but it was announced that there
would b» practii". s during the Cluist-
mas  holidays.
It is proposed that this team play a
four-game socio.-, with the University
of Washington, two games being
played ler> and two in Seattle: he
suggested time was the second or
third  week  in  January.
Ralph Henderson
Ralph has returned to casaba tossing after quite a long absence. Last
year ne fell foui of the eligibility
rules, bane of all athletes who take
their sports setiously, and this year
he has performed for tho Canadian
Rugby team up until now. He played
for the Senior A hoopers Saturday,
and turned in a nice game at guard.
Second Division
A's Defeat B's
On Saturday afternoon Varsity's
2nd Division "A" team proved their
right to the title of "A" by defeating
the 2nd Division "B" team. The game,
which was played on the Varsity stadium, produced some really good rugby in spots, Wilson and Willoughby,
of the "A" team, making a number fo
nice runs. The best team work was
shown by the "B" team forwards,
who provided stiff opposition for the
forwards of the "A" team, despite
much excellent individual work on
the part of the latter.
The game was fast throughout and
at the final whistle which found both
teams working hard. The final score
was 15-0 in favour of the "A" team.
-<$> Within three minutes from tha
opening whistle, the Thunderbirds
had made their first score, and demonstrated their superiority. Senkler
went across the line, and Mercer
nearly shocked your reporter into a
delerium by booting the ball over
the posts, the first time this has been
done by the Bluo and Gold since the
first game of hte season.
It is evident that Captain Roxbor-
ough's assurance that his charges are
assiduously practicing this little trick
was no hooey, for later in the game
a penalty kick which added to the
score and one more of the attempted
converts only failed through interception by a speedy Redshirt.
Little Robson, at half, continued Jiis
spectacular career, usually proving
an impassible object to apparently irresistible forces in the shape of
charging red-shiits three times his
size, The boy must exist on a diet
solely of Grape Nuts.
Roxborough brought his peculiar
and elusive canter into play and tore
off.big gains right through the thickest of the former students, providing
some of the most spectacular plays
of the day. He was responsible for
the second try of the session.
The front ranks, as well as the
rear-guard, arose in their glory and
showed what they can do. Pearson
and Gross led their cohort with vim
and determination, while Harrison,
the modest dark gentleman in the
front line of the scrum, contrived to
do prodigious feats, and, by his apologetic air, glv° the impression that
he felt he should have achieved even
more. As he usually was buried under a quarter of the Ex-Brittania
team at the conclusion of his ground-
gaining smashes, it is difficult to see
how it might have been done.
The most remarkable feature of the
game was the small number of Varsity students in the stands. Here we
have a spectacular aggregation of
players, showing championship form
in one of the most popular sports in
town. Large crowds of appreciative
spectators turn out weekly to Brockton Point, the most beautiful of Vancouver sports grounds, to v/atch them,
but a Varsity student is harder to locate than a needle in a haystack.
