Friday, the Ubyssey proposed
that Students' Council use the
141,000 now ln the Union Building
fund, and proceed with one wing
of the building.
Comment on this Idea about the
campus has been so favorable that
council can hardly dare to overlook the matter. We know, of
course, that there are several minor
difficulties in the way of proceeding
with the building. Council knows
about these, and understands them
better than we do, but we challenge
them to show us any serious stumbling  block.
Any suggestion by council that
the 141,000 be diverted ln some way
and used to relieve overcrowding
in the classrooms must meet with
Arm opposition. That money was
raised fo rone purpose, let lt be
used for that purpose, and right
"The students might be able to
shame authorities Into doing something for the university as a whole,"
one campus official told me the
other  day.
Perhaps we could.

~ Chang Suey - loving Student
Prince has suggested that the caf
Install one of those new nlckle-a-
melody slot machine music boxes
(they  call 'em  Wurlitzers).
I thought it was a fine idea of
the Prince's till Saturday, when I
sat ln Rob Roy's coffee shop dunking doughnuts and spending all my
nlckles to hear the Dorsey band
play "The Moon Oot Into My Eyes."
You see, tbe tune had connotations
for me, and so I wanted to hear
It over and over again till my
nickles were gone, and I was late
for my show.
You can see what might happen
if a Wurlitzer got in the caf. In
the first place the continual din
would drive cat loungers nutty.
Theyd have to go to the Library or
some other foolish place for peace.
Then, those with a yen for certain
tunes, like myself, would repeat 'em
till they'd driven the rest of the
students  out onto  the  parking lot.
Biggest evil that a Wurlitzer
would bring would be the sudden
shortage of nickles, and the resultant drop in the consumption of caf
coffee. No, Mr. Prince, in our present overcrowded state we cannot
allow such an infernal machine into
the confines of our sacred underground tavern.
The caf management must protect itself. Thumbs down on Wurlitzers.

^"^ Last year the annual Open
House Day died a quick death when
nobody seemed anxious to sponsor
the affair. At present, scienceman
Charlie Campbell is heading a committee that will draw up plans for
Open House and carry through
these to what should be a successful conclusion.
Bright feature of the whole idea
this year is the fact that Arts will
play a real part in the show. The
members of the revived L.S.E. organization, enthusiastic under the
regime of Malcolm Brown, have
pledged their co-operation. A real
Open House should represent the
whole university, nnd should not be
merely a display of engineering apparatus.
But Arts groups will have to work
hard to prepare something to compete in Interest with the science
show. So hard, in fact, that it
makes one wonder If they're really
going   to  be   able   to  do  It.

At Banquet
Maroh   28,   1934,   presidents   of
four major elube, met at a bualnaaa aeaalon of the  Literary and
Scientific     Exeoutive.       Minutes
were   reeorded   and   the   record
book plaoed baok In oounoil files.
Thursday    evening    that   minute
book  was  taken   out  of  its  hiding
place,  dusted  off,  and  used   to  record  the minutes  of  the gathering
that marked the re-birth ot the several-years-defunct L.  8.  E.
Presidents of about 30 clubs under the L.S.E. sat down In the caf
faculty room Thursday to take part
month or next, plus a Japanes
in a banquet presided over by Malcolm Brown, whose bouncing energy had brought about the formation
of a new "Lit. and Scientific."
Five girls and 23 boys attended,
partook of slightly warm soup, roast
beef, carrots and fruit sundaes, and
heard Brown tell them that the L.
S.E. was going to go places and do
things this year.
L.S.E. will be two executives,
Brown said, a major and a minor
group. The former, with ten members, will be headed by presidents
of Players', Musical Society, Forum
and Engineering Society. The minor executives will meet once a
month, starting October 27.
Brown's outline of his reorganization scheme was followed by a
series of toasts, drunk in all seriousness, until Don Munro of the
Film Society, ln toasting the faculty, went off on a tangent and described how the Romans used to
drink to either the gods, or the
Whether the five faculty members present were classed as gods
or walking corpses wasn't made
clear by Munro.
Dr. W. L. MacDonald, honorary
president of the Musical Society,
spoke for a moment on that organization, telling the group that the
musicians have co-operation and
experimentation as their major
items of policy.
He   declared   that   many   years
ago the  Mueleal  Sooiety uaed to

to consider the proposal for a National Conference of Canadian University Students, to be held in Winnipeg during the Christmas holidays.

over CJOR this evening at 9 o'clock.
A dramatic version of the history
of U.B.C. will be the hightlight of
this evening's program, according
to Program Manager Struan Robertson.
A large staff of students have

If U. B. C. On
Sucker List
"I wonder if we're on his sucker list?" was the comment of
Bill Sibley, S.C.M. president, to
a letter from a public speaking
instructor which was read at a
meeting of the L.S.E. on Monday
The letter, signed by "Mr. R.
J. Smyth, B.A., M.A. (Toronto),
Barrister at Law (Osgoode Hall),
medallist ln both public speaking
and elocution," conveyed the Information that Mr. Smyth would
be willing to instruct students
"at the extremely nominal price
of ten cents per student per lesson"—provided that at least 20
students enrolled for a course of
20   lessons.
"It ls our duty to bring this
before the students," announced
chairman Clarence Idyll, appointing Jim McDonald as a committee to  do  the bringing.
McDonald requests all students interested to leave their
names with Miss Fox at Students' Council office Immediately.

combined to present the most outstanding feature for this month's
Forum activities.
This special debate will be held
in the Auditorium at noon, October
The very "live" resolution reads:
"That it is in the interests of China,
if she must fall under foreign influence to fall under that of Communist Russia rather than that of Imperialist Japan."
The University of B. C. will be
represented by Harold Rome and

Interesting Vacation
Student Has Dramatic Experience
In Thick of Oriental Conflict
Gliding into Peiping from
Tientsin aboard a night express,
through brooding darkness on
the eve just before the much-
talked-of Loukuchial Incident of
July 7th, was the near-dramatic
experience of Kiyoakl Momose,
who, while fellow students
sweated in various channels of
employment, took a four-month
tour of Japan, China, Korea and
Asked by the Ubyssey if he
had felt any undercurrent of unrest in Peiping that night, he
said that he had sensed nothing
unusual outside of an "intangible
tenseness" in the atmosphere,
which he had credited to anti-
Japanese feeling.
"I might have been in the
thick of it," said Momose regretfully, "but since Japanese officials advised me against visiting
Shanghai at the time, I saw no
need of staying in Peiping save
for a few hours."
"Japan is a contradiction. Despite its westernization, there
are evidences of an Old Japan.
There is an old Japanese saying," continued Momose, "about
a thousand knots made by a
thousand different women on a
length of string serving as a
charm against bullet shots, and
hence, on every street corner,
women and little children stand,
soliciting a 'knot' from fair pas-
sersby. This quaint belief in a
city far more highly industrialized and commercialized than
my native Vancouver! It is hard
to believe."
Questioned on his personal
opinion of the Sino-Japanese
conflict, Momose smfled, and
"Personally, as a Canadian,
my views are impartial. I think
there is much propaganda on
both sides. The incidents are too
highly exaggerated to gain sympathy. I know that even the Canadian-born and American-born
now residing in the Orient share
my viewpoint—that of skeptical
"Fellows outside Japan get
more first-hand news on the
Far-Eastern questions than
the general population at
home, for there, every item
must pass through the hands
of rigid military censors."
Asked if there was truth in
the news splashing across local papers, Momose answered
in the affirmative, but stressed
that   much   of   the  news   was
highly   exaggerated   and   colored   by   the   opinions  of   the
"The   Loukuchiai   Incident   in
itself,"   he   said,   "was   a  minor
one,   and   a   very   swift   understanding   between   the   Chinese
Political Party and Japanese official in charge might have been
reached had it not been for the
intervention    of    the    Nanking
government.   By   the   time   this
event was published it was being
regarded in a notorious light."
"Popular feeling in Japan is
that of patriotism and indignation against Chinese interpretation of Insignificant events as
world  issues."
"Do not think for a moment,"
he deelared, "that I am advocating aeademlo oredlts for suoh
"This would bs fatal," he said,
"for unless the aotlvities srs on a
voluntsry basis they must of necessity die."
The  speaker  also dealt with opportunities  that  the  L.S.E.   has  to
assist the university ln its attempts
to   win   favorable   attention  of  the
general public.
He mentioned in particular the
approaching Open House Day,
which will be, tor the flrst time an
affair truly representative of the

stations have featured Open House,

the program a success.

Properly handled, he said, the radio hour could do much to win support of the public.    He noted with
gratification  that the program  will
be   handled   by  an  executive,  built
up for this purpose, and devoting a
good deal of time to careful preparation.

On October 6th the Alma Mater Society passed a motion
authorizing the Students' Council to appoint a committee to
inquire into possible solutions of the overcrowding problem.
Two weeks have now passed.
Still no action has been taken.
No committee has been appointed, and no explanation has
been offered.
Yet overcrowding is probably the most serious problem
that will face council this year.
Bern Brynelsen's council or Jay Gould's council would
have attacked the matter at the outset. This year's council
have treated the matter with the timid indifference that has
marked all their actions.
Council positions are not awards in an annual popularity
contest. They are responsible jobs for capable people who
can best serve their University.
What about it, Council?
Tomorrow afternoon U.B.C. students will gather at the
grave of Frank Fairchild Wesbrook, the first President of
the University, to honour the man who brought about the
founding of the institution and gave his life in its service.
The story of the late President Wesbrook's career is no
longer as well known as it should be. There is no space here
to do more than suggest the details of the story of self-sacrifice and disappointment that make him oustanding among
the pioneers of B. C.
Dr. Wesbrook's energy brought about the organization of
the first independent University of B. C. in Fairview, where
it had been formerly a branch of McGiil University.
When the Fairview premises became too overcrowded for
efficient work, Dr. Wesbrook finally prevailed upon the government to take steps to move to the Point Grey location.
The Provincial Government agreed to begin the program,
and Dr. Wesbrook engaged the services of a number of leading college men throughout America to assist in planning the
new institution.
This committee in many cases threw up lucrative positions
to accept the new work of designing the first methodically
designed campus in the world.
At the last moment the Provincial Government called off
the entire program, and left Dr. Wesbrook "holding the bag."
Dr. Wesbrook did not live to see the U.B.C. on their new
sight, but his heroic spirit was behind the student campaign
of 1923. The founder and flrst President himself died in 1916
during the 'flu epidemic, brought on by a breakdown from
worry over his thwarted plans.
Tomorrow, U.B.C. students will again honour the memory
of the man who built U.B.C. It is not a task to be performed:
it is an opportunity to be seized.
Cadet Lang Wins
First Rifle Shoot
Staged By C.O.TC.
Rll'les thumped and bullets hummed among the Autumn leaves of
Blair Range on Sunday when fifty
cadets of the C.O.T.C. turned out
for the first rifle practice of the
year. High score of the day was
made by Cadet Lang, one ot this
year's recruits, who made 58 out
of a possible 65.
Shooting conditions were ideal,
but it was the first practice of the
season, antl the majority of the
marksmen were far below the
standard of last year's team that
captured  the  Canadian  Trophy.
An emergency "Cease Fire" signal from alert Alan Morley, range
officer of the day, saved the life of
a stray dog who decided to cross
No   Man's  Land  under  fire.
For several minutes after the
firing ceased the air was shrill with
the whistling of fifty cadets all trying to coax the puzzled canine out
of the danger zone.
A near "mutiny" occurred when
a number of recruits demanded
their turn ln the "butts" to mark
targets for the team ut the firing
point. In previous years this work
has been done by hired militiamen,
but this year the Corps decided to
economize and do It themselves.
Instead of proving to be "fatigue"
work, it was eagerly sought by the
rookies who liked to sit In the concrete trench below the targets and
listen to the bullets humming a
few feet overhead.
This year's enrolment far exceeds
any ln the history ot the University, with more than 52 freshmen
applying for membership.

Editor,   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The latest Students' Handbook
contains a message to the Student
body from A.M.S. Prexy Dave Carey, which has been puzzling me for
the past month. It sounds like a
very vital message if one could only
discover what President Carey Is
talking about. Or do Council members have to talk about anything ln
particular when  they talk?
I hereby quote the offending passage  and  leave lt  to  you  and  yovir
readers to discover what lt means:
"I  believe that out of this  University    can    arise    the    kind    of
leadership that will be capable of
solving the adveree conditions  In
our  province  and  oountry,  but  it
can   only   be   achieved   when   we
start thinking of other  people   In
another way."
There   Is   surely   something   very
mystic,  here,  or is it just my  mind

possibly be loaned to Maurice Van
Vllet, athletic director, for Instructional purposes for the team.
The films showed remarkably few
faults, in the opinion of the execu-
tle. Dr. Shrum, acting as Faculty
adviser, stated that he was very
pleased, and that he would leave
the editing and arrangement of the
pictures to the students themselves.
"The technicolor Alms show signs
of under exposure in places," Dr.
Shrum said, "but I understand that
this commonly occurs when the pictures are taken in the late afternoon when reds prevail over other
Especially praised were some
technicolor views of lilies in the
pool of the Japanese garden. In
both plain and technicolor views
cloud effects, shadows, and detail
were exceptional in their quality.
The film was free of "gralnineas,"
a flaw frequently seen, even in commercial films.
Cameraman McGregor, the Society's photographer, was praised tor
the surprisingly high "batting average" of his work, nearly two-
thirds of which will be used. Professional film producers throw out
as much film as they use, Dr. Shrum

Mr. John Jones, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Samuel Jones of Pleasant Villa, became the bridegroom of Miss
Elizabeth Smith, at high noon today. The ceremony took place at
the home of the groom's parents
where a large crowd was assembled
for the nuptial rites.
Mr. Jones was attended by Mr.
James Brown as groomsman, the
latter attired entirely in Wallls
Blue serge. As the groom approached the altar he was the cynosure
of all eyes. Coloring prettily, he
replied to the questions of the clergyman ln tones which were low but
He was charmingly clad in a
three-piece suit, consisting of a
coat, vest and pants. The coat,
which was of dark material, was
draped about the slightly padded
shoulders, and tastefully gathered
under the arms. A pretty story was
current among the wedding guests
that the coat was the same worn
by his father and grandfather on
their wedding-days. Mr. Jones did
not deny the truth of that sentimental statement; indeed he stated
that all weddings lu his family
it has been the custom to wear
"Something old (the coat), something new (shoe laces , something
borrowed (money for the marriage
license), something blue (his father).
The vest was sleeveless, and met
at the front. It was gracefully
fashioned with pockets and at the
back held together with a strap and
buckle. Conspicuous on the front
of the vest was the groom's favorite piece of jewelry, a fraternity
pin, and from the upper left-hand
pocket was suspended a large Inger-
soll watch, the bride's gift to the
groom, which flashed and gave the
needed touch of brilliance to a costume perfect ln taste and harmony.
The groom's pants were of dark
worsted and were suspended from
the waist, falling in accordion
pleats almost to the floor. The severe simplicity of the garment was
relieved by the right pantalet,
which was caught up about four Inches by a Boston Garter worn underneath, revealing Just the artistic

the genuine leather shoes, laced
with strings ot contrasting shade;
the ensemble bad a cbic effect
which was altogether French.
Beneath the vest the groom wore
blue galluses, attached fore and
aft to the pants and passing in a
graceful curve over each shoulder.
This delightful and useful part of
the costume would have passed unnoticed had not the groom muffed
the ring which the groomsman passed him. When he stooped to retrieve the errant ctrculet, the delicate blue of the galluses was prettily revealed.
The groom's dainty neck was encircled with a callor characterized
by a delicate pearl tint of old-fashioned celluloid, and around the collar was a cravat, loosely knotted
to expose a collar-button ot bright
The cravat extended up and under the left ear wtth that studied
carelessness which makes for the
supreme  artistry in  dress.
Mr. Brown's costume was essentially that of the groom; indeed
as the two stood at the altar, a
hush of admiration enveloped the
audience at the complete and wonderful harmony of the raiment. Actually lt was only possible to differentiate between the two by reason
of a patch of court-plaster worn
by the groem over a nick in his
chin made by a safety razor. Neither Mr. Jones nor Mr. Brown wore a
hat at the ceremony.
As Miss Elizabeth Smith led the
blushing groom from the nuptials
lt was noted that she wore the conventional vetl and orange blossoms.

Unique Book
"Woven into the stuff of other
men's   lives."
This ls the Inscription which
adorns that unique book which lies
on Its blue and gold cushion at the
end of the notice board ln the library.
This   triumph   In   book-binding
and art was a presentation to the
university   by  the   Faoulty  Association     In    oommemoratlon    of
their oolleaguee who have died In
the servloe of the  unlverelty.
The   Memorial   Book   Itself   was
bound   by  one   of   the   faculty,   Dr.
Geoffry Culwlck,  formerly head of
the Department of Mechanical Engineering and now head of that department  ln  the  University  of Alberta.
The cover consists of inserted
panels of leather, a diamond-shaped
piece in the centre surrounded by
blue and brown panels with delicate gilt  ornamentation.
Particularly interesting are the
tiny florettes which are found ln
the centre and outer panels. These
diminutive flowers consist of separate green and ruby pieces of
leather, which, like the panels have
been set into the binding, and give
evidence of the skill and delicate
workmanship which must have
heen  required.
The back cover is identical to
tlie front with the exception of the
Inscription which reads: "University of British  Columbia."
The fly-leaf, whieh like all tho
pagea,  la  of the   highest quality
vellum,   bears   the   signature   of
Oovernor • General  Bessborough,
and the title page Is Illuminated
In     rleh    dolors    and    exquisite

Enshrined   in   this   book   is   the
name, position and date of death of

$    By The Beggar Student    t
Today, with the oo-operatlon of
the printers, the
BEER AND permanent title of
SKITTLES this column should
decorate the top
areas of page 3. It is customary for
a columnist to explain, and to some
extent justify the name with which
he has decided to grace his periodic
outbursts. But we find this somewhat difficult.
It all goes back to an evening in
Venice. Spring had just come to
the Bride of the Sea, and our blood
was on fire. . . . But that is another
story, and a very interesting one,
too. We cannot explain the title by
saying that it is our favorite quotation from Burns. Or as having any
secret significance. Probably it is
the title because we couldn't think
of a better one.
But the columnar nom de plume
can be explained. It seems the
Plaza Theatre ran a picture of the
same name. We saw it, and It waa
so good that we returned the next
day, with the Student Prince in
tow. So we will be the Beggar Student. This makes the aforementioned gentleman and us eligible for
the collective title of the Prince and
the Pauper probably.
If you have an opportunity to see
the picture, we recom-
BE STILL mend it. Tha tenor-
MY HEART soprano duets are colossal. But notice the
comedienne. Her name is, we think,
Marika Koekk, and she makes Hollywood look pretty silly.
As a matter of fact, we spent
most of last Thursday afternoon
composing a letter in what several
pubsters fondly called German. And
now we are on tenterhooks waiting
for her autographed photo to arrive.
Ah, Heidelberg, Heidelberg. . . .
The advent of the annual fall
term essay flurry
ESSAYS ARE Is upon us. And
HERE AGAIN the usual stories
are current. One
French M.A. student who decided
to write his thesis on Flaubert (he
says because he likes "Madame Bo-
vary") confidently strolled down to
the stacks to get his books'. And
discovered that the cupboard was
bare. The other French M.A. student was writing a thesis on Faul-
bert. And he didn't like studying in
the stacks. Probably because It was
too noisy. Anyway, he had appeared the day before, with two
large suitcases. And now all the
extant works in Flaubert are in his
quiet little den at home.
So he Is wading through English
translations, and waiting to get his
hands on the other M.A. student.
It seems that the Library should
have some rule about letting all
books on a subject go out to one
And thesis writers can apparently
keep books out indefinitely. At least
they do. We tried to think of an
original essay subject. We did. And
someone had all available books on
the subject. So the essay was written on the basis of books written
about 1880 by people who didn't
know very much about it anyway,
coupled with a slight bias against
the early Christian theologians.
While we are talking about the
Library, it seems
THE LIBRARY to be a good idea
AGAIN to suggest one or
two changes that
might profitably be made. The circulation desk is surrounded at every
hour of the day by an impenetrable
mass of earnest students who want
ten volume editions of some tremendous work, or the latest Dos
Passos novel. Miss Lannlng is faced
with hundreds of hot little hands
clutching carefully made-out call
slips. And she does a remarkably
good job of getting the books out
in a hurry. But a little organization ot the desk would eliminate
much of this. A separate desk for
the reserve books would give more
space for circulation.
Then, one person could take call
slips, and ascertain whether or not
the required books were in; another
could get the books (two persons as
runners would be better still) and
another person could check out the
Then one might get to one's lectures on time; the Library staff
would not emerge panting and exhausted at the end of the day. And
above all, the books would move
more rapidly.

Campus theatre-goers will be provided with a varied and especially
interesting program of plays late in
November, when the Players' Club
present their annual Christmas performances ln the Auditorium.
The plays as announced by the
advisory board of the club, include
a comedy, a tragedy, scenes from
Shakespeare and an old-fashioned
melodrama. They will be performed on the evenings of Nov. 25, 26
and 27.
"The Fascinating Foundling" ls
a sophisticated comedy by George
Bernard Shaw. As is the case with
most Shaw plays, the plot ls not
particularly complicated, the main
Interest centering around the dialogue.
Briefly, the story concerns a
young man and a young woman, a
beautiful foundling, who each come
to the Chancellor's office, demanding that he provide them with suitable mates. As expected, they are
married to each other eventually.
This play will be under the Joint
directorship of Mrs. D. C. B. Duff
and Dr. Joyce Hallamore.
So successful have the scenes
from Shakespeare been in past
years that they will again be repeated under the able direction of
Prof. Ira Dilworth. The selections
to be presented this year are taken
from "Antony and Cleopatra."
One scene will be that where Antony, Hearing death, is carried to
the top of a mountain, where Cleopatra and two maids are awaiting
him. In another scene, a soldier,
Dolabella, informs Cleopatra of the
coming of Caesar and of how he
plans to lead her in chains through
the streets of Rome.
Probably the dramatlo highlight
of the evening will be the performance of "The Blind,' s tragedy by Maeterllnok. It la said to
be a very beautiful tragedy and
extremely effective when well
performed. Miaa Dorothy Somer-
eet, direotor of the eprlng playa
for aaveral years, will be In
charge of It.
The cast Is composed of a number of blind people who are taken
on walks through a forest in charge
of a monk. On one of these walks,
the monk sits down to rest, and
dies. The plot revolves about these
blind people and their futile wanderings ln the forest.
Planned to be the light moment
of the performance Is an old-fashioned melodrama, "Curse You, Jack
Dalton!", to be directed by Prof.
Walter Oage.
This ls another episode concerning the course of true love, which
never did run smoothly and certainly not ln this story, replete as
lt is with hero, heroine, villains and
Bertha, a sweet, young and innocent girl and naturally the heroine,
is ln the employ of a society matron,  Mrs.  Donna Dalton.
She loves and ls loved by ber
employer's son, Jack, but before
everything can end happily, villains
and vlllalnesses have to be foiled,
'colses!" fly through the air (children under 16 not admitted), a poisoning plot ls defeated, and Bertha,
the essence of sweetness, barely escapes being committed to an Insane

at   present   due   to   the   assumption

might possibly be questioned.

Varsity Seconds Score
Defeat Rowers by a 8-0
Second Straight Win;
Count on Saturday
Playing ln the muck and mire of
the rain-soaked Brockton oval Saturday, Meralomaa Iron men Blithered through a badly disorganized
Varsity 'English Rugby team to
their third straight victory In flrst
division   to   the   tune  of  6-3.
Preoiee taokling, emooth ball
carrying and good team work
oomblne to mako the Kltelee tha
undoubted masters of tha day.
Thla teamwork placed Jaok
White In a position to make a
penalty klok oount for a half-time
lead of 3-0, while Varsity's ahort-
oomlnga allowed a 26-yard fumble
to equalise Carey'a penalty aoore
and maintain the Meraloma lead.
Over and above the doubled score
waa the strong contrast between
teams. Meralomas played for keeps
and walked off with the marbles;
"Varsity played for fun and limped
off  with  the  bruises.
Downtown acrlbea to the contrary, notwithstanding, the "Blun-
derblrde" showed flaehea of apeed
• nd aggreaalveneaa that can make
them the team to beat. Those
who acintlllated were Tremblay,
Mattu and Howie McPhee.
Varsity Seconds upheld the good
name ot Alma Mammy by administering the Rowers an 8-0 trouncing that showed combination only
distantly remembered by their older brothers ln the first team.

Junior Footballers
Take College 11-5
It seems that there ls one Varsity
team that can win Canadian Rugby
games. Last Saturday, outweighed
liy a game Fighting Irish squad,
Varsity's Junior team came from
behind to take Vancouver College
The  Collegians aeored  on  Varaity   In  the  flrat  quarter,   by  the
aerial  route.     In  the aeoond  period,   Varaity,   taking   the   ball   in
midfleld,   marched   down   to   the
College  alx-yard   line where   Bra-
eon   plunged   over   for   Varalty'a
flrat blood. Vancouver waa rouged
later In the aame quarter, making
the aoore at half time 6-6 for the
Thunderbirda.     In  the  final  quarter    Morrow    fell    on    a    College
fumble for the final touchdown of
the game.
This makes Varsity's second win
ln as many games, the 'Birds taktng
their first occasion from Meralomas
last  week  by  an  11-1  count.
Varsity's grid Thunderbirds failed
to take their thunder to Athletic
Park on Saturday afternoon, and
when the storm cleared the rampaging North Shore Lions had rolled
over a 23-2 score against the luckless  students.
The Varaity aquad waa badly
off form, giving the Leoa little
opposition In lugging the pigskin
hither and yon over a alippery
field. Forward paaalng waa the
order of the day for anarling
Llona and any Blue and Qold
fight left after a driving North
Shore attaok waa burled under
the eontlnual barrage of forward
Although the Thunderbirds were
badly weakened by the absence of
backnelders ap Roberts, Henderson and Mattthlson, lt was the forward wall that proved to be the
weak  link.
The   powerful   Varaity   line   of
prevloua   gamea   waa   aadly   lack- ,
Ing   except   for   a   few   brief   momenta in the aecond quarter.
When   the   'Birds   did   advance
the  ball  within  aoorlng  dlatanoe
aomethlng   uaually   went   wrong,
and  It waa only a mlaoue by the
Llona behind their own goal line
In   the   third   quarter   that   gave
Van VIlata' men two pointa for a
aafety  touch.
Dave Lewis, Johnny Pearson and
Tommy     Williams    showed    the
only   sustained   fight   through   the
whole   game,   but   the   rest   of   the
team^was just out for exercise with
none  of  the  old   college   spirit  and
fight.      But   some   good   flashes   of
real football came out of the gloom
and   a   few   good   practices,   plus   a
little .confidence   will   do   wonders
for   the   luckless   gridders.
