Film Society Bringing
"Don Quixote," With
All-Star Cast
Today at noon tbe Film Society
presents the film translation of
Cervantes' masterpiece, "Don Quixote." The all-tar cast includes tbe
world's most famous basso, Fedor
Callapin; Oeorge Robey, the well-
known English comedian, and Sidney Fox, who will be remembered
tor her work In "Strictly Dishonorable."
RBVBR8BO OROSR
Tbe film translation ot the masterpiece has somewhat reversed
tbo order ot events as related by
the author; while tbe book shows
the knight dying after returning to
bit home in accordance with the
promise exacted trom him by a victorious knight, the film shows Quixote dying heartbroken at being deprived ot his books, after the windmill has  put him to shame.
Critics say that Cervantea' ob-
Jaet In writing waa to criticise
tba romantlo apirit of hla hotheaded compatrlota, ever ready
to draw on the leaat poaaible provocation. Thla la evident In the
court acene of the film where
Don Quixote ohallengee hla
niece's lover to combat.
IDEAL. LIFE DESTROYED
Don Quixote Is crushed in his
aoul by the advancement ot a civilization which destroys bis ideal
lite; that ot a knight-errant; and
lt the comparison Is not out ot
place, the lead In "Don Quixote"
reminds one singularly ot another
personality crushed by the cnroach-
menta ot a mechanized age In
"Modern  Times."
Tbe whole film seems to be a
satire of the statement that books
are only figments ot the imagination and ever spur one on to useless works,—to flght "windmills."
After having lived his books, a
fanciful life of imagination, and
having died with their destruction,
Don Quixote's voice sings that his
books bave made him Immortal
. . . and out ot their ashes the
manuscript ot "Don Quixote de la
Mancha," by Miguel de Cervantes
Saavedra, arises to live on immortally 1

THREE MORE COUNCIL ACCLAMATIONS
NEXT YEAR'S COUNCILLORS
Setting n surprising quality
standard in sustained mood, interest, and dramatic ability, the play
was outstanding for its smooth
pace ond cmotoinal strength, Its
maturity, thought and effectiveness
establish onco and for all the nbil
ity of the Players Club to handle
serious drama competently.
Arthur Sager, gloomy and Victor
ian morality incarnate, was splendid
in his part. Ho Aged not only by
means of makeup, but in voico,
bearing, mentality. Ho was wholly
effective in a part obviously written for the satisfaction of Author
Alfred Songster, and thereby becomes the most outstanding figure
in the play.
The sisters were admirable, both
individually and in combination.
Beth Gillander's surprising dramatic strength bound the audience
in enthralled attention; her death
acene might have been masterful,
but for the ghastly intrusion of
the machine age in the sound of
some hellish auto horn from the
parking lot,. Audrey Phillips is
consistently good, the live, nervous
clarity of her acting peculiarity
suited to Charlotte of the play with
her action on impulse, her determination and continued emotional
struggle. Mary McLeod, slight and
charming, gave to Anne credibility
and charm. Her timidity before the
repeated battles of temperament in
the parsonage parlor, hor bright
and bird-llko interest, are wistful
and appealing.
Graham Darling, as the drunken
brother Branwell, took the most
difficult single scene in the play.
Drunks are traditionally painful on
the stage, yet Darling kept the
scene well in hand and purged it
of painful elements in the best
English  10 tradition. '
Pictorlally, the production was
superior to that of most previous
years. The scene in Brussels, finely
spaced and grouped, and a splendid
ground to costume colours, is a
real tribute to designers, stage and
lighting crews. Costumes were
graceful and likewise worn with
considerable style, not alwaya the
case in amateur productions.
Minor parts were often startling-
ly good. Lorraine Johnston etched
her role of Mme. Heger with
sparkling clearness. Adella Thur-
bcr's ancient serving-woman was
comfortable and human. Ludlow
Beamish, the watch-dog lover,
rounded his role with sympathy and
humor.
Special tribute is due Fred Hob-
son, who filled the breach created
by Charlie Locke's illness. The offlce scene was disturbed by misplaced cues, not wholly due to Mr.
Hobson. This scene is -written with
delightful comic interest, and in all
fairness it must bo admitted that
tho principals caught tho spirit of
it.
Peggy Fox, WUS.;  Bob Smith, Treasurer, and Jean Meredith, Women's Athletics, were declared Councillors by acclamation Tuesday evening, when no further contestants for these offices were nominated.
With Dave Carey's acclamation for President last week,  four out of nine Council  positions have been
filled without balloting, an unprecedented event in Campus history.

I wish to take this opportunity
to thauk those who submitted my

I feel that my experience, as a
member of committees for the Women's Undergraduate Society and
for the organizing of the Homecoming rugby game, and especially
as Recording Secretary of Zeta
sub-chapter and as Corresponding
Secretary of All-Phrateres, qualifies mc to assume the responsible
position of Secretary of the Alma
Mater  Society.
To solicit your support for my

program:
1. To place unstinted effort behind
every project which the Alma

Hailed as tho most significant
figure in the modern dance, Martha
Graham, one of tho most outstanding artists over to visit Vancouver,
will present a performance at the
Empress Theatre March 31.
Miss Graham commands all the
inflections of the dance vocabulary,
blending intelligence with a high
degree of technical skill. Primarily,
she is a subjective artist, succeeding in telling not only the bald tale
portrayed by the gestures, but also
what lies behind it.
Not only does Miss Graham create the dance ensembles, but also
she designs the settings for the
performances,and even suggests the
music to Louis Horst, .conductor of
the accompanying orchestra. Mr.
Horst is himself a musician of the
flrst rank.
Miss Graham has done much for
the legitimate theatre, principally
in conjunction with Guthrie Mc-
Clintoc and Katharine Cornell in
tho Theatre Guild.
Long atudy, combined with a
breadth of original conception such
as is seldom seen, havo raised Miss
Graham to the position in the field
of tho donco which she holds today.
Following somo work on tho Pacific
Const, alio wont to tlio cast, wltoru,
nftor further study, sho litigan to
appear, V'rom tho flrst, alio was
grcotod with enthusiastic acclaim,
which haa shown no sign of abatement since.
In her performances, Martha
Graham presents twelve solo numbers, while six are done with the
group. On the whole, her presentation is a significant one, in which
ironic comment is bronght to bear
upon a variety of themes.
Martha Graham is brought to
Vancouver by Hilker Attractions,
an agency headed by Gordon Hilker
(Comm. '34), once active in the
U.B.C.  Flayers  Club.
Reservations may now be made
at tho M. A. Kelly Piano House,

ANOTHER SENIOR MEETING REQUESTED
We do not wish to level the charge of railroading against
the senior class executive, nevertheless lt ls our opinion that
they acted in a rather high-handed manner as regards the
valedictory gift.
The gift concerns a sum of four hundred dollars or
over and we believe that the spending of Buch a sum should
receive very careful consideration and that every member
of the graduating class should be given an opportunity to
vote on this spending.
True, a meeting was held ln Arts 100 last Tuesday, but
less than half of the senior class knew of the existence of
said meeting. There were no notices on the regulation
boards or in the class rooms and the meeting received no
publicity ln the XJmyssey. Two noon-hour announcements
ln the Caf are hardly sufficient at this time of year when at
noon nearly half of the students are escOnsed in the library
and labs, many others are spring walking on Marine Drive
and still others are busy with a Spring play.
We would like to suggest that a neW meeting to discuss
the Valedictory gift be held a week from today. Such a
meeting could be well publicisized on notice boards, in the
caf and In next Friday's "Ubyssey." Thus every senior
would be given a chance to attend. Since the Valedictory
money ls not collected until April there seems to be no good
reason for spending it in a hurry.
Furthermore, it ls our opinion, that the proposed Student loan fund ls not a suitable gift. There are already many
sources where financially embarrassed students may obtain
loans. At the best the Valedictory money could only benefit
one student a year and would thus provide the university
with Just one more graduate a year.
We believe that the Valedictory gift should be a gift to
the University and as such should increase the capital assets of the University and benefit as great a number ot students as possible.
That, however, is up to the Seniors to decide at their
next meeting.
KEEP VAN VLIET
The success of the basketball team in downing the
strong Province squad in four games brings right into the
spotlight the splendid work of young and energetic Maurice
Van Vliet coach for most ot this University year. To him
is due a large share of the praise merited by the team's victory.
It is Just about two years ago now since collective demands of the student body, given voice through the Ubyssey, resulted in Van Vliet's appointment to the University
. as physical instructor. Since he arrived here in the fall of
1935, Maury has continually proved the value to this campus of a trained athlete and instructor and has unobtrusively
won the popularity of the whole of the student body.
Now there are seemingly authentic rumors that thia
man has received a very attractive offer from a southern
college, and that he is giving lt serious consideration—not
because he does not like the U. B. C, but reportedly because
the position and salary are more handsome.
To try to describe his usefulness in full would be impossible here, but perhaps a fair idea can b egained from the
facts that besides being coach of an "A" class basketball
team, he has brought intramural sports from nothing to
their present level; he trains and coaches the track team;
coaches boxing, * tumbling, volleyball, Canadian football,
wrestling and general physical conditioning. He is both
accomplished as a particpant, and trained as a teacher in
Innumerable forms of sport.
In short, Van Vllet is a man whose services we cannot
afford to lose. The Ubyssey hopes that University authorities wil take serious and effective steps to keep him here.
STUDENTS CAN STRIKE
Of lato thoro ls a trend in many universities to consldor the wishes
ot tbe students in putting clauses on the curriculum ln tho ordering ot
those classes. Though the Btudent ma ynot know all that is good for
him but he haa an idea. He should not be the final authority in matters
of classes, but hla opinion should be obtained and conaldored.
It might Burprise the heada ot the university and tho different
departments it they knew how many and what classes are tremendously
unpopular and for what reasons. The arguments of the objectors generally amount to a feeling ot inefficiency, weakness and misunderstandings on the part ot the professors Involved. The professor has practically complete control over the course he offers. He can mako or
break the clasa and since hia course may be a prerequisite the enrolment does not decrease at la would If the natural lawa were allowed
to operate. '
Some professors instea dot being "bugbears" are "cinches," only a
little catering to his personal preferences being necessary tor a high
mark.
If atudenta were given a little responsibility and an opportunity to
offe rconstructlve criticism ot courses they would reject the hypocritical and "below board" aspects o't a University education.
Certain criticisms could be made against prevalent forms of lecturing. Tbere are those classes in which professors deliver their lecturea in such a dogmatic and authoritative manner that all discussion
ia squashed and the student is given no opportunity to form his own
opinion. And tbere is nothing more boring than a professor who talks
in a monotone on and on like a gramaphono.
Dictation of notes is an objectionable factor. Considering the efficiency ot transcribing and multtgraphlng machines, it seems rather
useless, lt ia more objectionable, considering that often tho notes aro
given tho same way year after year.
Certain classes are uniqlstakably unpopular. If complete voluntary
attendance were allowed, the authorities would soon find out how tho
students rate the courses. If, however, tho students feel strongly
enough against a class and are willing to make a sacrifice there la a
way out. A general strike In tho classes affected would arise some
individuals from their slumber.

Random Ramblings
BY
THE 8TUDENT   PRINCE
"The McOlll Dally" haa attracted
considerable attention recently
with its Students' Peace Campaign
issue, some 20,000 copies of which
were distributed on campl across
Canada. Long recognized as the
stronghold of Conservatism and
the arch-enemy ot French-Canadian
radicals, McOlll has startled the
nation with what appears to be a
sudden sympathy with the policies
of the Quebec students. Only a McOlll graduate can appreciate the
significance of tbe use of French on
Page Four of the Peace issue, an
innovation which must have caused
whole cemeteries of McOlll cadavers to turn over ln thetr graves.
Some clue to this mysterious
phenonmenon may be found ln the
character of the preaent "McOlll
Daily" Editor-in-Chief, John H.
MacDonald, probably the moat sensational flfeure in the history of
Canadian college publications. U.
B.C. was flrst made violently aware
of Kditor MacDonald'a existence
one Sunday night last October
when Senior Editor Kemp Edmonds was routed from his bed to
receive an eight-page telegram describing an attack by Laval students on a Spanish government delegation and a McOlll professor, and
implying that Quebec was on the
verge of revolution.
"VOU MUST HAVE THK WRONG
NUMBER"
A few weeks later the go-getting
"Daily" editor got wind of the Impending abdication, and nonchalantly phoned up King Edward and
Mrs. Simpson to ask if the rumors
were true. Neither party, however,
was ln the mood for trans-Atlantic
tete-a-tete with Editor MacDonald,
which was probably a good thing
for the McOlll telephone bill.
It ls Just possible that the Peace
Campaign laaue of "Tho Daily" was
made as pink as possible ln the
hope that McOlll authorities would
suspend Comrade MacDonald. Tho
repercussions ot such an action
would not only be great publicity
for the heroic scribe, but would bo
a great tonic for the anaemic Peace
Movement. There ls nothing like
a bit ot martyrdom to make the
boys and girls rally round to defend "tho freedom ot the press"
and koop the world safo for democracy.
I would probably fall for the old
line of hokum myself.

2. That all ticket sales for undergraduate functions be handled

With regard - to general council

I will sponsor the Stadium but
first I think that a proposed plan ot
the Brock Memorial Building

I believe that the Students' Council must consolidate the ground
they have gained in the last year
before they attempt any Important

propose to havo tho executive consist of tho presldonts of aU ACTIVE organizations on the campus

to exist in an advisory capacity.
By such organization I feel that
there will be moro coo-peratiou
amongst these cluba which will result in tho raising ot their standards and increasing their appeal to
the students. Herein I feel will be
found the solution ot the troubles
of the Parliamentary Forum.
2. Organization ot the president*

With Easter coming so early this year the question of new spring
hats seems very topical. We'd like to remind you that you can-get
your new hat at the same place you buy your new suit and coat. Where?
Why MADAMI RUNGE'S, to be sure.
Think how convenient that Is. While trying on your new suit you
may buy the perfectly matching hat at the same time.
Everybody Is going to rave about the new hats, some are flower
trimmed, while others boast of perky little veils which are lust made
for glamour.
Shiny straws are going to be very popular, and don't forget the fine
straw tailored models which will go so well with that mannish suit. And
of course, sailors are still  popular  this year.

The goddess of fashion decrees that smartly dressed women must
go shod in grey th>s season.   And so RAI SON'S BUOQBT SHOP has
imported a magnificent selection of light grey suedes, calfs, kids and
gabardines in all models from St. Louis.
There is "Scott," a conservative grey kid tie, and "Nevada," a
grey kid pump with a Junior heel for those who dislike extreme styles.
"Quality," the high gored suede, Is trimmed In calf. Very smart
Is "Coronet," the two-buckle model with the centre strap in suede
trimmed with calf. Fashionable gabardine is used for "Alpha," the high-

With such a grand feeling of spring in the air our feet just naturally gravitate to MOWN BROS, at 665 Granville Street. You can get the
true spring feeling there, for the whole place is a mass of colourful,
fragrant blooms. Beautiful double tulips in yellows and rose, golden
daffodils, fragrant hyacinths, military single tulips; it certainly is hard
to tear yourself away.
The easiest way to go is to take part of the store with you. You can
bring real spring into your home with a bunch of Brown's spring flowers.
Surprise the family with a bouquet next time you come back from town.
And for real gaiety remember what a "something" a fragrant buttonhole adds to the new suit. A bunch of violets would be a beautiful
addition  to your spring outfit.

Alex Charters
I wish, briefly, to present my
platform for the presidency of the
L.S.E.
X feel sure that my "non-
propaganda" platform will ensure
all voters ot my sincerity. Listed
concisely, the planks are:
1. Enlisting the co-operation of all
faculties in the organisation of
an open hous.o
2. Reviving public speaking classes
for those untrained in debating
and speaking.
8. Arranging a definite program to
avoid cjashes in club meetings,
and other Literary and Scientific activities.
Gordon Gray
The duties of tho president of
the L.S'.E. fall into two categories,
vis., those of Council members in
general, and in particular those of
prsaldont of tho L.S.E.
Regarding tho former, my platform includes the following planks;
1. Support of any attempt to
establish student co-operatives
upon a sound basis.
2. Clarification of the issue, "Faculty  vs.   Student    Self-Govern
ment."
Respecting the latter I include
the following:
1. A comprehensive introduction
of frosh to tho work of the various olubs under the L.S.E.
2. The setting up of a permanent
committee to provide material
of literary merit and general
intereat for publication In tho
Ubyssey.
8. Sponsorship of a general cultural program making such informal  extensions  of tho our-
Correspondence

Editor of the Ubyssey.
Dear Madame:
t have a oorreotlon to make In
tho quotation given on Film
Equipment at the Meeting laat
Tuesday of the Graduating Olass.
The estimate given was 1900 for
projector installed In the Audit*
orlum. Preposterous! I Either
our president did not go to the
proper places for his quotations,
or he was trying to railroad
something. The highest price I
could persuade the dealer to
give me was «760; and I can get
a new machine—the best obtainable—equipped for the Auditorium (in the projection booth) for
$760.
Where the President obtained
thia quotation I don't know; I
am only aorry I was not there to
correct it. As for the machine
becoming antiquated, I know that
the Film Society would find lt to
their advantage to start a sinking fund to renew the machine*
at Death.
Lest the Olass think that, as
a member of the Film Society I
am too interested in this gift, I
wish to say that I am, BUT I
realise that the machine will be
of infinite use to many other
people. The d e p a rtments of
Modern Languages, Geology,
Chemistry, Physics, History and
Psychology will find many uses
for the projector, and eaoh time
that there is a presentation tho
name of Arts '37 will come up.
Arts '37 has done something lasting for their Alma Matert 11
Youra truly,
Donald F. W. Munro.
Bdltor, Ubyssey.
Dear  Madame:
May I draw your attention to
an opportunity tor practical assistance without cost which Is
available to every Canadian university student intending to travel or study ln Europe during the

Mr. J. R. Johnston (University

Canadian Universities, is ln London each year from May to September for the express purpose
of helping in every possible way

in Europe and is a place where
information -of every kind ls

ot travelling cheaply or courses
ot study. Through him students

people and the personal factor ls
added to their trip. England may
be aeen trom the Inside and not
merely on  the surface.
I strongly recommend that all
students conoerned, communicate
with Mr. Johnston. He will be ln
Canada House, Trafalgar Square,
each morning from May to September. If you would like information about your trip before

VARSITY   CAGERS   WIN   INTER-CITY   TITLE
HI6H SCORER
RANN MATTHISON AGAIN
SCORES WINNING BASKET;
TO   PLAY   VICTORIA   NEXT
BY JACK MAIR
*.
Playing before a record crowd of howling hoop fans, the 'Varsity
cagers smashed their way to a 88-80 victory over Province to write
finis to one of the most hard-fought hoop playoffs in many years. As
a result of the win, tho Thunderbirds enter the B. C. flnala with Viotorla,
which start here March 10th.
Rann Matthison sounded the Newsies' death-knell whon he onoe
moro snatched the winning basket to end the deciding tilt and leave
the fifteen hundred wild-eyed spectators limp and hoarse from cheering.
Outplaying the Jones boys all
tho way, the students grabbed a
nine-point lead midway through tho
seoond half, but tho desperate
Newsies rallied to knot tbo soore
With two minutes to go Matthison
slipped through to give tho Thunderbirds tho same.
PROVINCE LEAD AT HALF
Tho tilt had just sot under way
and tho students wore leading 7-8
whon three hundred collegians arrived from tho "Brontes" to add to
tho already hug* crowd that Jammed tho gym to tho rafters.
After tho. enforced time out
amused by this disturbance, McLellan and Purves found tho hoop four
times to give tho Province Quintet
• four-point margin. Henderson
retaliated with » brace of Markers
to bring tho oount to 11-10 at half
tlmo.
After tho breather, tho Thun-
dortadrda, led by Bill Swan, stop-
«away to a three-point load,
s long heave by Lofty Me-
Lellan put tbo Giants on oven
terms    again.     At   thla    point
Bardaley, Willoushby and Hon-
dorson sot down   to work and
rant up eight moro counters to
glvo Varsity • 94-15 load. Purvee
and Bumstead than stopped Into
tho pleturo and retaliated with
four timely baskets to tie up tho
match again.   From here on tho
load see-sawed   back   and forth
until Matthison sifted through to
ehalk up tho winning counter.
Willoughby waa top man for
Varsity with eight markers, while
Purves tallied ten for the Journalists. Pringle alao played • bang-
up game for the wnlners, snatching
rebound after rebound from tho
hardworking Giants.
Tho scores:
Varsity—-Bardsley 6, Matthison,
Henderson 6, Wllloughby 8,.Swan

Here's the high-scorer of this
final Lower Mainland basketball

around Saturday to lose their flrst
match of the season B-l to the

Oood combination and an odd aa-
aortment of blocking plays gave
the Southerners an edge over the

South Vancouver. Both games will
come off at Memorial Park (43rd

Spectators from the university are
not expected—lndeod the players
oould not stand up under the shock
ot seeing anybody travel all that
way merely to watch them perform.
Our Illustrious seniors, the class
of '87, came through with an unexpected but overwhelming 18-8 win
over the Juniors ln the seml-flnals
of the hoop Intramurals. A surprising feature of the contest was the
phenomenal Juck at ahootlng . . .
its like was never before seen in
an lnter-class game. Margaret
Porter and Betty Morris were tops
in scoring honors, with six points

In order to finish off the volleyball tournament sooner, tour gamea

U.B.C. ROWERS MEET HUSKIES
IN ANNUAL REGATTA
Tomorrow afternoon on the waters ot Lake Union, the U. B. C.
rowers are to take on the University of Washington 160 pounders In
their annual regatta. The Thunderbirds, although hampered by
bad weather, flu and equipment,
have had three weeks of workouts
and are ln fine trim. The Huskies,
although one of Washington's
lighter crewB, 1b considered to be
one of their best balanced outfits,
all men being well experienced.
The Varsity eight are not travelling south with any Inferiority complex, and coach Tom Brown says
that they will give the Huskies
real competition.
What the campus oarsmen may
lack ln the finer amenities of finished style they make up ln the
well-known rah rah spirit. Besides
coaches Brand, Brown and West
who are all going to make the trip,
many students are expected to give
the boys that extra push that is
necessary to bring them in flrst
across  the line.
The following are to carry the
Blue and Oold colors across the
finish line we hope: Cox, John
Ker; Stroke, Bob Pearce; Mel
Chapln, Stu Jamison, Wilt Williams, Bruce Oordon, Wordle Heth-
erlngton. Bob Melville, Alex Mcintosh and Wilson McDuttee.
twelve hours and fifteen minutes
— that doesn't mean leaving the
caf then and slowly ambling gym-
wards and wondering whether to
turn out or not. Also, did anyone
ever mention that the excuse of
studying ln order to get out of
playing is awfully  stale?
Sc. '40, Sc. 38 Win In
Intramural Semis
Such weird cries aa "Play It up
to the net," "Set it up," "Now kill
lt," echoed through the gym Wednesday as the seml-flnals ot tbe
intramural volleyball tournament
were run off.
On one court Sc. 88 led by Bill
Swan and Pat Love defeated a
team from So. '87 sparked by BUI
Wolfe. Sc. '38 win in straight
gamea 16-11 and 16-6, eliminating
Sc. '37. On the other court, Arta
'39 and Sc. '40 were fighting lt out
to see who would enter tbe grand
finals. After the Redshirts had
taken an early lead the Artsmen
came back to win the game 16-18,
largely due to some nice plays by
Bil Watson and Art--Clarke. The
second game went to the Science-
men by a similar score after a hard
battle. The third game was a real
thriller' with Science finally winning out by a score of 17-16.
In the seml-flnal next week on
Friday, Arts '89 will play Sc. '38
for the right to meet Sc. '40 for
the championship.
A real Incentive ls held out to
the finalists in the basketball tourney as Maury Van Vllet announces
that he will attempt to have the
final played as a preliminary to the
Varaity - Dominoe classic. Today,
Arts '39 will play Sc. '39. Saturday's game between Sc. '40 and Sc.
'37 bas been cancelled. Next week's
basketball games will be played on
Wednesday Instead of Friday. Class
reps  take note.
FIRST TEAM PLAYS
'LOMAS SATURDAY
In the second round of tho Tisdall Cup knockout series, Varaity'a
flrst team will meet Meralomaa'
highly touted seoond division squad
at Brookton Point on Saturday at
2 o'clock.
Last Saturday a muoh patched
Thunderbird team ran circles
around the fleet Nlppons to tho
tune of 46-0. This week with the
team rounding into shape and with
Jim Harmer baok in the scrum tho
boys shouldn't have any trouble
with the Clubbers. This game will
be the last before the big Miller
Cup classic end for that reason
alone the game has some Importance, for It gives Coach Dobble a
chance to see how the team will
line up,
A CHALLENGE
Maybe it'a spring. Or perhaps tho nervous tension of approaching exams haa caused the
hard-worked sciencemen to break
loose. Anyway, the boys of Sc.
'40 are throwing down the
gauntlet to any and all who care
to pick it up.
Any class which feels sure of
its prowess may put up a side
for the demon redshirts to bowl
over (they say). Really it ia a
scheme to enable tho boys to
regain their lost flrst place in
the intrams. The winners of any
oontest will bo awarded points
in tho Interclass standing.
If anyone dares, thoy may answer the challenge through
Maury Van Vliet or Jim Ussher.
MALL RACE

Old man Weather haa put the
Indian sign on our tracksters again,
resulting In another postponement.
But hope springs eternal and our
optimistic Maury has announeod
that the Mall raoe, scheduled for
yesterday, will bo staged noxt
