The kindness of Mr. and Mrs. de
Ridder has made possible the preparation of these program notes tor the
concert to be given in the Auditorium at 3:30 p.m., February 19. As
no other notes are to be given students are advised to take this column
with them to the concert.
I would also like at this time to
thank Mr. Walter Gage for his courtesy in making available to me the
advance notices of the Music lectures
and the Quartette Recital.

1. String Quartette in G
major, op. 54 No. 1 (No. 57)
Frank Joseph Haydn, famous Austrian composer, who is often called
the father of symphony, was born at
Rohrau in 1732. He gave evidence
early of great musical talent and in
1740 came to Vienna as a chorister at
St. Stephen's Church. His career was
not an easy one, and his life was
not made any happier by a marriage
to a selfish and ill-tempered woman
who had not the slightest understanding of his genius. However, Haydn's
character was such that overcoming
all difficulties, he was able to leave
us never ending inspiration in a series of masterpieces in every line of
musical composition. Of these among
the best are his numerous string
quartettes and it may well be said
that he is the father not only of the
symphony but also of the classical
string quartette. The form of neither
tha classical symphony nor the string
quartette may be said to originate
with Haydn but he endowed both
these styles with new life by reason
of his vivid imagination, his perfect
mastery of the art of voice leading,
and his ability to compose themes of
outstanding  beauty and  charm.
The quartette to be played tomorrow is in every sense an example of
the best work of Haydn in expression
through the quartette form. The first
movement (allegro con brio) has that
appealing vitality, the second movement (allegretto) that serene beauty,
the minuet (menuetto-trio) that dainty grace, and the finale (presto) that
captivating dash which endears such
musical gems to music lovers all over
the world.

2. String Quartette in E flat
major, op. 51.    Dvorak.
Anton Dvorak, the composer of the
famous New World Symphony, has
also written several beautiful string
quartettes, one of which, because of
a use of Negro themes, Is called the
Nigger Quartette.
To-morrow, however, the quartette
is presenting a composition which although different in style is none the
less truly representative of Dvorak's
characteristic work.
The first movement shows in its
smooth flowing strains that lovaly
subdued mood which reminds us of
certain of the passages in the New
World Symphony. It could well be
interpreted as a vision or dream as
its beauty is undisturbed from the
beginning to the end. It has sonata
form, purposely avoiding however
any strong contrast between first and
second themes. Thus the mode of expression is unified to one definite
mood. The second movement is entitled Dumka. It is an Elegy in which
the theme is sung by the first violin
and answered by the viola. The middle part is a Vlvacu in Scherzo style
which makes a welcome contrast to
the slower movement into which it
again leads. The third movement,
which Dvorak called Romance, ,is in
the key of B flat major and is of a
oecullarly subdued but at the same
time happy character. The setting for
string quartette should be especially
appreciated as a wonderful example
of writing for four individual voices.
The Finale shows some real Bohemian temperament. The pace which is
mostly fast is interrupted only by two
passages of a slightly slower tempo.
The decided touch of briliancy in tho
middle section is also manifest during the last coda.

Caution Money
To Be Given
Waivers May Be Signed Any Time
Word wa* received
by the Ubyssey last
night that today has
been set aside as' Wai-
v e r Day*. Students
with Caution Money
Waivers will flock
over the campus all
day. You will be asked to sign away your
unused caution money
to the Union Building
fund. An Arts Men
and a Women's Undergrad meeting yesterday agreed to this
method of raising
some of the $30,000.
The reports of those
meetings are given below.
Time To Act!
A mere $600 has been raised to date for the Union
Bililding fund. Two weeks ago more than a thousand
students pledged themselves to see the campaign through
to a successful finish. And yet, the personal subscriptions are not coming in.
In 1930, a campaign for the gymnasium raised $20,-
000. Those were supposedly hard times - - but the money
was raised by a student body enthusiastically behind the
propect. All that is needed today is effort. A few hours
hard work on the part of every student would bring in
the desire damount.
$20 from every undergrad • • a total of $30,000
as against the $20,000 that outside organizations are
giving us. It is absolutely necessary that the cam*
paign be a success, if for no other reason than to
prove that the student body will live up to its promises made two weeks ago.
If the students will wake up from their indifference
long enough to put this campaign over, the University
of the future will gain a building that will raise the student life to a university level - - a building that will do
its part to turn out graduates ready to tackle the business

Vital Need For Union
Building Is Stressed
Students Have To Raise But One Fifth of Total Amount Needed For Proposed
Personal Subscription Must Be Successful If
Campaign Is To Conclude In Two Weeks
The proposed Union Building on this campus will provide
a much-needed social center for the students of U.B.C, it was
stressed in an interview given to the Ubyssey by Jay Gould
Outside organizations, including alumni, faculty, Governors, and Senate, have pledged themselves to attempt to raise
$120,000 towards the proposed building. This leaves $30,000,
or a fifth of the total sum, to be raised by the student body.
The campaign method of paying for the building is necessary because it is well-known that the Government will be unable for a long time to provide the Univ^^sity with any new
structures. ^ _ _
. —* rjij^ coj]ege at preSent is fto more thaiHMKry*school - - with
no facilities to enable the students to get together. There is a
definite need for integration, a need that the proposed building will fulfill. The Union Building will provide pleasant surroundings for student life. A true University must have more
than lecture rooms - - it must provide for the extra-curricular
life of the student body.
Few Hours Sincere Work Needed
All that is needed is a few hours sincere work on the part
of everyone, it is stressed. $20 raised by every studnt will insure the success of the project.
It is pointed out that the Union Building will be entirely for
the use of students. It will be their building, and will serve Hi
purpose to bring all student activities under one roof.
A successful conclusion to the campaign will change the
future history of the University of British Columbia. With
four-fifths of the needed $150,000 being offered by other organ*
izations, it is up to the undergraduates to prove their ability to
raise the remaining $30,000.
All organizations are bending their efforts to sponsor affairs
for the campaign. The only department that is falling down is
the personal solicitations. These must increase before the money
can be raised.
The coming week will see the success or failure of the
Union Building campaign. For obvious reasons, it must not be
allowed to fail. The reputation of the University is at stake,
with the entire province of British Columbia watching the efforts of the students. The Twenty-first Anniversary of U.B.C.
should be fittingly marked by the erection of the Student Union
Council Discusses Campaign
At the regular Council meeting last night, the probem of
soliciting one's friends for donations to the Union Building was
discussed in all its aspects.
Ralph Killam pointed out the difficuties and unpleasantness incurred by the students doing the soliciting.
"If the students are not willing to make a slight sacrifice,"
declared Gould, "they are not standing by the Alma Mater Society. The building they are working for will have a greater effect on the University than anything we have ever done."
"This is the first time in five years that the students have
been asked to make the slightest sacrifice to their Univrsity,
and it probably won't happen again for another five years."
In the discussion that followed Council made it plain that
this was a different matter from soliciting money for one's self.
It meant asking the individual to contribute to the Provincial
University, which, declared Killam, was in dire need of help.
Routine business, including a grant to the Swimming
Club, closed a short meeting.

The engagement of the Vancouver Symphony Quartette ia an event which must be
about unique in the history of this University. Unique because nobody has been willing
before to risk his pocketbook in offering decent music in these realms consecrated to the
sacred cause of pep. This time backing has
been forthcoming from a public spirited professor.
Council would not sponsor the concert as
they figured that the Union Building was covering them with enough glory. If we thought
this is a tacit admissipn by Council that this
concert could not attract enough students to
make it pay, we should withdraw our support
of the Union Campaign at once. Because students, who are so illiterate that they cannot
patronize a recital, do need a Union building
with its lounge rooms and dance floors, but
longer hours in the class rooms and library.
Of course, the students are not as benighted
as Council supposes them. There is nothing
either good or bad but thinking makes it so,
said Mr. Shakespeare, maybe anticipating the
mind of the collegiate Olympian. The recital
may actually make a little profit, to Council's
chagrin!   It ought to, it is a splendid program.

It was suggested to us the other day that the
Musical Society and the Players' Club join
forces this year, in giving a week of entertainment at a downtown theatre. That is, presenting "Pirates of Penzance" and "She Stoops To
Conquer" on, say, alternate nights. In this fashion, a larger public would be attracted than
is usual at University Theatre, and the profits
to swell the Union Building Fund would be

Thespians of this fair campus is dynamite, and
the Ubyssey from bitter experience, knows better now than to toy with it.
But we do confess that the idea seemed
worth passing on to you. And in the bargain,
incidentally, contact with a pleasure-seeking
audience rather than the usual precious university patron might well vitalize the two
Clubs. What do they say?
... Cam Gorrie came out with a bright one
at the Union Dance ... he said, "I can't seem
to work up any enthusiasm over the girls on
this campus in the daytime, but at night they
seem to look different—almost attractive" . . .
you shouldn't say things like that to a columnist, Cam . . . speaking of the Union Dance, we
would suggest orchids to the committee in
charge . . . but a nice bouquet of onions to
one of the Salisbury Lodge boys, who is alleged to have made his entrance via an open window . . . people who gyp their own University

gallery that let those weights down over the
heads of the orchestra at the pep meet last
Thursday . . . and it was Norm De Poe who

IT'S been no fun during the past two weeks
if you belonged to the Ubyssey staff. Naturally enough, all your friends and acquaintances steer clear of you when they have an
idea that you might be in some way infected
with mumps or something more deadly.
Four times at the Union Dance I had just
commenced trotting with some fair companion
when she would suddenly go into reverse until
she was at arm's length and then ask, "Say,
you haven't got the mumps, have you?" It
may not have been actually embarrassing, but
it was an nuiscence.
Then, when walking through the caf, you
can almost hear the group at the table say,
"Don't get too close to him, he works on the
Ubyssey, and they've all got mumps."
We're seriously contemplating publishing a
list of Pub members who are immune to mumps
in order that they can associate with their former friends again. For all I know, such a list
may even appear in this very issue. But there
is one list that doesn't have to be published,
the names of those who can't carry mumps,
for that includes everyone on the campus. It
just isn't that kind of a disease.

Sidelights on the
Union Building
THE Musical Society, in an earnest endeavor to publicise their coming operetta, "Pirates of Penzance," sent out an unusual circular to the general public. Because of the nature
of the production, the circular was spelt partly in Olde English spelling. So imagine our
surprise when an irate gentleman phoned the
Ubyssey office and demanded to know why in
thunder he should pay taxes for a University
when they sent messages to the public that
were actually spelt wrong!
And furthermore, he added didn't the students of this University know that "cutthroats"
had no "e" on the end?
The fact that the complaining gent in the
above instance didn't separate the Musical Society from the student body as a whole, but
lit into the entire lot of us, is another example
of the truth that the University is known by
the actions of any part of it.
So every organization, from the small discussion clubs to the daddy of them all, The
Players' Club, has got to be careful in anything
they do that reaches the general public. For
most of that public is willing to take any irregularity as an exuse to rail against the University of British Columbia—that expensive playground for the children of the rich!
HE Editor of the Ubyssey, usually a staid
I JL individual who follows a standard policy
in most things, has caught the experimenting
bug, and there's no stopping him! Aided and ab-
betted by the Senior Editors, he has attempted
to change the heading on the first page. Tired
of the Old English type, and anxious to follow
the example of that reputable journal, "The
Times" (the one that people write letters to—
not the New York one) he has placed a straight
ordinary type in the spot.
In an effort to draw the change to the attention of the readers, who probably otherwise
wouldn't have noticed it, the editor wrote an
editorial, which you probably didn't notice either. And so, because it's a ten to one bet that
more people read this column than editorials,
we'll tell you that the editor wants to know if
you like the change, or if you don't much care.
Personally, the last qualification suits me
better. After all, its the paper and not the jiggers at the top of the page that need remodelling if anything does.

a. Song of the Volga Boatman. Transcribed by
This famous Russian song has been
set for various combinations of instruments. It is very effective for
string quartette, especially in this
splendid arrangement by Alfred
Pochon. The latter, who was for many
years a member of the well known
FJonzaley quartette, was thoroughly
familiar with quartette music and
with the possibilities of the four instruments. He was thus well fitted
to make a number of arrangements
for string quartette which Carl Fischer of New York has edited and
from which the present arrangement
was taken.

b. The Mill. Raff.
Joachim Raff was a gifted composer
of a generation or two ago. His Cav-
atina for violin and piano is perhaps
the best known of his smaller compositions. Among his symphonies the
one entitled Fruehlingsklaenga
(Sounds of Spring) is well known.
The Quartette will play tomorrow afternoon a movement from one of his
string quartettes which, because of its
steady going and snappy movement,
may well be taken for a little tone
picture of a mill.

c. Larghetto.       Handel
Everybody knows Handel'.} Largo,
but the beautiful melody of nis Larghetto is not so universally known,
though in depth of expression and
breadth of style it equals the famous
Largo. The Larghetto will be played
tomorrow afternoon in the arrangement of Alfred Pochon. who has very
ably preserved the dignity of Handel's style. The passage in which the
second violin carries the melody is
especially noteworthy as an example
of unusual quartette writing.
* •   •   •
d. Nocturne.    Borodine.
The Russian composer Alexander
Borodine whose symphony in B minor and whose Russian dances for orchestra are so well known has also
written two string-quartettes. The
Nocturne to be played tomorrow is
taken from his eeond string-quartette.
It forms a very suitable number in
itself and shows Borodine as a skilful
writer for this medium of expression.
The beautiful theme has »reat originality and the manner of its introduction, first by the cello, then by
the first violin, is very effective. The
alternative themes have an interest
of their own and an unmistakably national flavor. The voice-leading is
highly individualized and the ending
in the higher range of the strings is
extremely poetic. It is a magnificent
piece, written in a styte that combines
in a remarkable way, the elements
both of lyricism and heroism.

Steeling a heart that might flutter and throb:

Lately I have heard .students using the vulgar phrase "according
to Hoil."   They speak as if Hoil had succeeded Gaskell.
Can it be that in these years of enlightenment they do not realize
that British law and social custom is based on precedent? Gaskell
was born in 1831 and wrote his famous "Compendium of Forms" in
1884 while Hoil did not reach this earth till 1877 ... and most recent
discoveries have it that he had the honour of being brought up on
Mr. Gaskell's famous work.
Before the Co-ed Jack must read some of Gaskell's remarks on
dancing. "Dancing is the art of moving gracefully and taking exercise to music. A well-executed dance may be called the poetry
of motion."
But he has a tip for girls at the Co-ed too.   "Unmarried ladies
will not dance more than twice with the same gentleman, because
doing so will suggest a particular attraction."
Students' Council should suggest that the library secure a copy
of Gaskell. Perhaps Jay will in due time . He seems to be rather
busy just now preparing for the Co-ed.
Jay owes me some money for proving to him that advertising
pays but he probably is still being hounded about his class fees . . .
I'll wait til he makes his tidy little ,sum as Judge on Berne's Ski

British Boot Shop. Their windows display the famous B.itish K
Shoes . . . shoes with an enviable reputation in England for over a
100 years.
Spring will drop suddenly upon us this year which means a long
season for riding. Gaskell speaks of riding as "an elegant and healthful form of exercise. "He presumes that the gentleman will early in
life wish to invite a lady to accompany him and so goes on to say . .
"You are not probably the owner of 2 horses, and the horse you
ride is not used to the motion of the riding skirt; so whan you ask
a lady to accompany you, your first care will be to find a horse habituated to the side-saddle and skirt."
Perhaps some of the students who piggy-back their ponies from
the Cariboo will find a suggestion a little .too formal but there is one
piece of advice that everyone should follow ... get your riding
boots at the British Boot Shop. Women's are priced from J8.95 . . .
men's from $10.50.
The Brynelson Open Challenge had to be postponed another week
because the majority of the contenders went to the A.D. formal in
Seattle this week-end.

I've discovered that must be what Molly Eakins is so jealous about.
She should worry . . . Fred Holmes carries a wide selection. Perhaps
Molly will arrive in an even brighter scarlet than Cornish.
I wonder why Dolly hammers on the door before coming in to
Eng 17.   Gaskell could make some appropriate remarks.
Jack was telling me the newest event for men in town is the arrival at E. A. Lee's of suits with polychromatic stripes which are al-
ternatling stripes of different colour. Drape is still leading though I
could have told him that myself from watching the smartest men

Reg Jessup has a new interest in life.   Rumor has it that she will

next week.
Of all the people connected with
the dramatic part of the Musical Society's light opera, the "Pirates of
Penzance", the one who has don'a most
to help the production is Walter Gage,
honorary vice-president and assistant
dramatic director.
Mr. Gage has been an untiring supporter of the Society ever since he
came to the University, and he is still
taking a very active part in all their
activities. His duties as dramatic director consist of listening to the players make love to one another (strictly in the course of the acting, of
course) and then saying to them,
"Well, I wouldn't do it that way. Do
it like this"—and so on, with all the
assurance of experience.
Mr. Gage was also interested very
materially In the lectures given by
Mr. de Ridder, and he himself put
up the hundred dollar guarantee required before the Vancouver Symphony Quartet would come to thc Unl

Haydn Wiliams is tearing his hair in

of the orchestra in shape, end runs

One of the strange things about the
society is the fact that none of its
members have had the mumps:
whether it is from the inherent purity of the vocalists or from luck alone
we don't know.
Caution Money To

paign and gave figures to s-.ow that
about 8 percent of the Artsmen had
turned in lists for soliciting. About
5600 has been collected so far. There
were strong objections from several
students against the system in which
they were expected to canvass friends
and intimate relations.
They were reassured by Jay Gould
who said that it is probable that these
restrictions will be removed or radically altered in the next day or so.
Of the several suggestions brought
up only the matters of the caution
money and of a Pep meet were discussed. The resolution to hold an Arts
Pep meet was defeated as there are
at least two pep meetings on the list
in support of the Union Building for
the coming week. Other suggestions
were to hold an abbreviated Open
House in which Vancouver citizens
will have tha opportunity to see how
the University runs. It was also suggested that a grand parade be held on
the occasion of the McKechnie Cup
game at Brockton Point. Good publicity might result if the students all
went out to the site of the new building with grub-hoes and brush-hooks
and  did a little actual  labor  on   the
On Wednesday in the Auditorium
at 3:30 p.m., the stduents of the university will have the opportunity of
hearing the foremost string qu.irtet in
British Columbia in its first recital
of this year. By special arrangement
the Musical Society is able to sponsor
this group so that the price of admission is practically nominal. Instead
of the normal price of one dollar or
more, tickets are being sold at fifteen
cents. Outsiders will be admitted,
but in order to give students the first
opportunity of obtaining p amission
tickets are on sale today and tomorrow at noon In the Quad Box office.
Tickets wil also be on sale at the
door just prior to the concert. No
seats will be sold beyond the capacity
of the house. Already a large number of outside people have made enquiries.
Tho feature of the Recital will be
the Dvorak Quartet, In four movements. Mr. de Ridder has arranged
the programme, however, so that the
programme will meet the tastes of
The members of the String Quartet
are Mr. Jean de Rimanoczy (first violin), Mr. Harold Hogue (second violin), Mr. Allard de Ridder (viola) and
Mr. Maurice Miles (cello). All are
members of the Vancouver Symphony
The main object of the Musical Society in sponsoring this concert is to
aid stduents to hear good music at
the lowest possible price. If the experiment is a success and gains the
co-operation of the stduents the Society will endeavour to broaden the
plan next year. Should there be a
profit from the recital on Wednesday
the surplus will be donated to the
Brock Memorial Fund for the Union
scheme.    There was no comment on
these last ideas.
At the close of the meeting Alan
Morley offered his resignation but it
was turn-ad clown unanimously. But
said Peter Disney, "If this resignation
is accepted it means the end of thc
Artsmen's Undergrad and it would be
not martyrdom but disgraceful suicide."
At a W. U. S. Meeting ln Ap. Sc.
100 on Monday the women of thc University voted unanimously to turn
over their caution money to the Students' Uunion Building Fund. "We
want to help swell the fund," said
Ardie Beaumont, "and giving our
caution money is the most painless
type of extraction. The Sciencemen
have taken the lead by turning their's
over, and we won't be far behind
Darrel Gomery, Secretary of Council, gave a pep talk from the floor,
"It's the women who started this bull-
ding—are we going to back down now
and let the men take all the credit for
it? If we don't get busy and add
something to the fund they certainly
could claim a large part of the credit."
Ardie urged the women to turn in
their lists, as very few had done so,
and encouraged them to keep up their
campaigning. "Don't be afraid to approach people—there's really a lot of
outside Interest in the University and
the Campaign."
She also explained what the building would look like and a few of the
things to be included according to
present tentative plans. She spoke
particularly of a large central room
about the size of the gym, with a temporary partition dividing it into men's
and women's common rooms. With the
partitions folded back the room would
become a large dance floor. There
would also be committee meeting
rooms, faculty rooms, and probably
smaller reception rooms.

Coast Shipping Romance
Recalled By Maitland
With warm praise for the courage and faith of the men
who backed and directed early B. C. shipping, Hon. R. L. Maitland, K.C., recounted the engrossing story of B. C.'s maritime
development to a Vancounver Institute lecture audience here
Saturday evening.
Following the rise of Pacific ship-names of past coast boats, Mr. Mait-
ping from its inception on the South land recalled the old Princess Louise,
American coast in 1828, Mr. Maitland the Otter, the Danube, the Princess
treated in greater detail the stormy Sophia, and the Islander, which went
clays of early coastwise service here, j down with passengers and thousands
He stressed particularly the great of dollars in gold on an iceberg in the
boost to shipping furnished by the North. The Charmer merited special
three great gold rushes—California, mention: "She was an old otvil who
the Klondike, and Fraser River. Dur- feared nothing, bumped everything,
ing  the  California  rush,  the  Pacific   and carried on for 45 years."
Mail lines brought 175,000 gold-seekers around the Horn to the West
coast, and returned $200.000.0'i0 in gold.
"Then as now," said Mr. Maitland,
"gold all  went b.ick  to  the East."
The Transpacific trade, originating
in San Francisco when the paddle-
wheeler "Colorado," about -he size of
'.he C.P.S.S. "Princess Alice" of our
:oastwise .service, made regular cross-
'ngs to Yokohama, took on greater
impetus with the purchase of the
"Abyssinia," "Batavia," and "Parthia"
by the Canadian Pacific for Oriental
Other boats were added to the service, then in 1891 the C. P. R. brought
out three vessels which were the pride
of world shipping. Vancouver thrilled
when the gleaming white Empresses
with their lovely lines entered the
Narrows, to Increase the seaport's
commerce and importance. Thc three
Emprcsscs—the "Japan", the "India",
and thc "China" — bulked 5900 tons
each, the size of our larger coast boats
"Whatever advances have been made
since then, there will never be any
prettier  boats,"  Mr.  Maitland stated.
Australian trade was first handled
by the "All-Red" route, which was
taken over in 1897 by the Union
Steamship Company of New Zealand.
The "Aorangi" represents the efficiency and comfort of this service today.
"There is nothing more romantic or
delightful than the story of the little
"Beaver." the speaker reflected in
telling the tale of this sturdy vessel
brought out by the Hudson Bay Company exactly one hundred years ago.
101 feet in length and of 109 tons, the
"Beaver" in her long career rendered
the greatest service and became the
greatest landmark of the B.C. coast.
King William and 150,000 spectators
witnessed her launching; on her 163-
day voyage out here, via thc Falk-
'and Islands, Cape Horn and Hawaii,
ihe left her escort, the "Columbia",
"ar astern; she was the trade-, the policeman, and tho warship of this
•oast; her life was altogether one of
iistinction and note.
To Captain John Irving, whose mas-
'crful business ability built up thc
-oast wise fleet which became thc Canadian Pacific Coast Service, Mr. Maitland paid admiring tribute. Associated
from thc first with B. C. maritime
trade. Captain Irving is established as
one of thc greatest figures In shipping
Mentioning   some    of    the    famous
A classic story in coast shipping
annals was told in connection with
the checkered career of the Charmer;
she had collided with the American
steamer, Williamette, in U.S. waters,
and had been pushed ashore on Bush
Point. Captain John Irving, who was
liable under international marine law
in the States, resolved to sail the
Charmer back to Victoria and to escape any retribution. He tailed to
Anacortes more or less incognito, and
en route struck up a friendship with
the U.S. Marshal who had been delegated to hold the Canadian captain
when he arrived. On landing. Captain Irving plied the unsuspecting
nnd unknowing marshal with American liquor until the gentleman was
quite insensible; then, making a deal
with the tavern-keepers to continue
furnishing him with alcoholic refreshment should he awake, he made his
way to the- stranded Charmer. THe
vessel was repaired, floated, *nd sailed
back to Victoria, and the doughty
captain escaped unscarred. The
Charmer never again entered American waters.
"The story of the Union, Steamship
Company is that of the story of Vancouver; it has played a personal part
in the growth and service of Coast
development, and reflects the faith of
its backers. It is a story of Builders,"
stated Mr. Maitland. He recalled the
old Leonora, the Cutch, the Comox
and the Capilano, and narrated the
story of their struggle to capture sufficient trade to remain operating in
the early years before the Company
had established itself in the Province.
Mr. Maitland had sincere praise for
the ability and competence of Captain Moody and his fellows, who ran
the Comox, Cassiar ad Capilano
through the treacherous coast waters
before they were properly charted
and were largely without beacons,
buoys, and bells.
An amusing sidelight of the Union
Company's earlier days was Mr. Malt-
land's mention of the camaraderie and
good-feeling existing between coastwise passengers and the ships' captains. Informality was the order of the
time; "It was nothing for thc old Cassiar the 'pride of the loggers', to leave
Vancouver with 100 passengers, 75 of
them drunk." It was the Cassiar whose
cemented scams gave rise to the classic story that she was made of cement.
Closing on a note of optimism and
faith in the future of Vancouver as a
great seaport. Mr. Maitland also lauded the splendid services of the coastwise companies and of the Pacific
Salvage Company, which furnishes
salvage     facilities     to     international
deepsea shipping.—J.  B.
War Ace Will Give
Illustrated Talk
At Noon
Jobs for University students
in the field of Aviation will be
dealt with in this week's Vocational lalk.
Wing-Commander Donald R.
MacLaren, D.S.O., M.C., D.F.
C, and Croix de Guerre, is to
be the speaker, and the subject is in excellent hands.
In order to give the students a better appreciation of Aviation work,
Major MacLaren plans «to illustrate
his talk with some hundred or so
slides of aerial views taken all over
Canada. This feature should make
this meeting a rather popular one,
and it might be advisable for any student hiving a keen interest in this
subject to secure a seat a little earlier
than is usually necessary.
Donald R. MacLaren was born in
Ottawa and his family came to Calgary in 1898, during the Klondike gold
rush. He attended public school in
Calgary, but received his Matriculation in Vancouver in 1912, and entered
McGill University.
Ho was engaged in surveying and
fur-trading in the Northwest Peace
River district from 1914 to 1916. In
the spring of 1917 he left Vancouver
and went into training at Camp Borden in the R.A.F.
From there he went to England and
was given his pilot's wings, and finally reached France tn time to take
part In some of the heaviest work any
fyers had to do during the entire war.
In the eleven months, with the aid of
what his comrades have characterized
as a mixture of indomitable courage
and a dead-sure aim, he brought down
many German machines—a conservative official record being forty-eight.
This figure makes Vancouver's flyer
the fourth greatest ace of the R.A.F.
Following the war, he entered commercial aviation in Vancouver in 1924
and conducted aerial photography
work in the Fisheries Department
Many consider him to be the finest
pilot in all Canada, due to the fact
that he has been flying almost steadily since the war and has never had a
serious accident. He can handle a light
plane as capably as a twin-engine
flying boat, and he is a pilot who takes
no unnecessary chances. He is a Wing
Commander ln the Reserve Force of
thc R.C.A.F.
At the present  time he  holds the
Major D. R. MacLaren, who will
give an illustrated talk on airways at
the Vocational Guidance talk Wednesday at 12:25 In Arts 100. Major Mae.

Varsity Hockey
Team Prepares
For Huskies
Trussel Stars In the Game
Against Capitolas
With less than a week remaining
before the crucial game with the
Washington Huskies, Varsity's puck-
chasing Thunderbirds are getting into first class shape to hand Washington a blistering defeat at the game on
The Varsity squad continued their
winning streak in the Junior league
over the week-end when they were
in a shut-out win over Capitolas.
Trussel starred in this game, getting
one goal and two assists. Lambert
and Price air    scored.
The U.B.C. team is replete with
star material, and can be relied on
to give the Huskies some real competition. Fred Burnett, right wing on
tho first string is a reliable player
who uses head work instead cf brawn
to take him places, and who will certainly make a good showing in the
coming encounter. Usher and Trussel are consistently good players, and
Price always gives a good account of
himself. Lambert and Trussel vie
with each other for top scoring honor? of the team. The squad recently
recruited a burly defense man in the
person of Provenzano who besides
playing hockey, is the newly-discovered swimming champ of Varsity's
Tickets for the game with the Huskies on Friday are now on sale. All
proceeds from the game are to be
contributed to the Brock Memorial
Fund. The game on Friday will be
positively copious with thrills, and it
will be for a worthy cause, so turn
out on Friday night at the Arena and
see how Canada's national game and
the king of winter sports is played by
the best team that Varsity has ever
assembled. —PERRY.

Sigma Alpha Phi jumped into the
league leadership in the Inter-Fraternity 5-Pin Bowling League, up at
La Salle Alleys, last Friday night by
taking a couple from Pi Kappa, while
Sigma Phi Delta were copping the odd
game from Zeta Psi.
Bill Gwyer of Zeta Psi legistered
individual honors both ways by hanging up a big series of 703 comprised
of strings of 208, 217 and a snappy 278.
Ken Patrick, of Sigma Alpha Phi was
runner up with a series of 685 with
games of 237, 192 and 256.   Doug Kiel
of Pi Kappa took down third money
with a three game total   of 650   by
combining games of 204, 209 and 237.
Jim Fyke of Sigma Phi Delta topped
the  600  mark  with  a  series   of   622
which included strings of 229 and 214.
Jack Elsey of the same team chalked
up a high game of 264 in his final
effort of the evening.
The league will roll the third round
of its regular schedule next Friday
evening at 7:30 p.m. with all eight

dear mister editor
Dear Mr. Editor:
* Boy did we see the Basket game
the other day. We can imagine what
would happen if two teams like the
Globe-Trotters got to-gether. Although I must say that the good old
Thunderbirds handed them their
money!s worth. But anyway it was
a dandy game, especially with our
old friend Mr. Henderson back on the
I wonder if Henny, Wil'oughby,
Bardsley, Swan, or Osborne will be
in Varsity colors next year. Remember when the U.B.C. team used to be
the worry of the other squads. It
wasn't quite this year but there'll
come a day.
Say, while I'm on the subject of
basketball, a few bouquets should be
handed in no uncertain manner to
Mr. Captain Joe. George Pringle
must be from the old school or at
least one would think so by the fine
brand of basketball he has been dishing out to his opponents.
We must remember that from now
on most of the games around Varsity
pass the gate receipts to the Union
Building officials. Every student that
turns out gives just that much more
to the fund.
That should be a good game of
| hockey on Friday.    I hear  that the
local men are in first class shape for
i the   match   with    those   Washington
Huskies And they aren't so baa them-
I selves.    The proceeds of this game
will go towards our thirty thousand.
| Our dear old Sports Editor has been
in bed some time with, (not the
mumps) a severe cold. We sure hope
that it won't be long before he is
back behind the old typewriter again.
I The American football team has
had a tough season but can they take

Dusky Basketballers
Strut   Their  Stuff
Was Det Hypnotized ?
"Det" Detwiller, first string guard
on Varsity's Senior A's, created a
small-sized" riot on Friday in the Student gymnasium. "Det" was a victim of a one-act comedy by Harry
Rusan, diminutive forward of the
Dusky Globe-Trotters. Harry started
dribbling down the floor, stopped,
waved his hands ln front of D"t's
eyes and then handed him the ball.
A supposed victim of hypnosis, Detwiller gracefully accepted the sphere,
and then dazedly laid it on the floor;
Cross- Country
Race Put Off
Till Feb, 26th
Old man winter has made his presence conspicuous again by postponing
the cross-country race that was
scheduled for Feb. 18. The ground is
as yet unfit for track work, consequently the meet will be held on Feb.
26 at 12:15.
So far there has been a decided lack
of entries for this meet but it is
hoped that by the twenty-sixth, the
list of entries will be enlarged. This
notice is of special interest to the
Aggies and the Theogs.
Organization meeting of University Ski Club, Friday, 12:10
Ap. Sc. 237.
Practice in the gym, 3:30 to 4:30 on
Wednesday, Feb. 19.   Everybody out.
The last meting of the Maths Club
was held at the home of Mr. Miles
Ritchie, last Friday evening. Miss E.
Raephael gave a very diversified discussion on "Some Chemical Thermo-
Dynamic Equations." Miss F. Wright
gave an interesting outline on the
Equation of Solution." Miss R. Elliot spoke on the "Application of Statistics to Mathematics."
Friday noon in the Campus gymnasium, over 1,000 students were
treated to an exhibition of smart basketball, and superb showmanship seldom seen in these parts.
The Harlem Globe Trotters strutted
their stuff in a big way, with trick
shots, perfect ball-handling, screen
plays et al—to chalk up a J9-23 win
—not that it mattered,
Although the Harlemites were continually in the limelight, Varsity's
Senior A's, bolstered by "Henny"
Henderson, made a very creditable
showing. Charley Hardwick and
"Spud" Davis were the mor.t effective
of the hard-fighting Collegians.
Through most of the first half, the
dusky hoopers played smart, almost-
perfect basketball. Again and again,
they flashed down the floor with a
four-man attack to sink plenty of
baskets from close-in. Their screening and interference plays with phenomenal shooting brought rousing
cheers from the Student supporters.
In the second half, the coloured
boys turned on the heat, went to
town, and otherwise enjoyed themselves. A vaudeville show 'hat would
put the Ziegfeld Follies to shame had
the spectators doubled up with laughter.
Inman Jackson, Captain and master
showman, started things off in the
third quarter. The Harlemites dribbled down the floor on an attack,
then stopped about the centre line
and began passing the ball between
the U.B.C. legs, leaving the Collegians open-mouthed. Berry tried
snatching the ball from Inman's overgrown paw and that gentleman moved
the sphere easily out of the reach of
the Varsity hopeful while looking
reprovingly down on him.
Harry Rusan, reputedly the smallest forward in professional basketball—he's only 5 ft. 11 inches, had the
crowd howling when he put on another one-act comedy. Dribbling
clown the floor, he suddenly stopped,
and politely handed the ball to "Det",
who was checking him. Lloyd was so ■
surprised he just laid the melon on
the floor and looked at it.
With about 5 minutes to «?o, Harry
finally became tired of it all, and
walked off the floor to ask Archie
Byers of swim fame, what he thought
of their performance. Archie's sentiments were the same as that of one
bright member of the crowd, who realized that the Harlem hoopers didn't
stand a chance of winning, yelling
out: "You got 'em Varsity—they can't
do a thing."
Although the hoarse on-lookers
yelled for more, Coach "Doc" Montgomery explained that the travelling
wondermen were journeying to Sar-
dis that night, and were scheduled to
humble the Ail-Star Province on the
following evening.
Bunny Leavitt, diminutive world-
champion Free-throw artist, gave another phenomenal exhibition at the
half. Missing 3 out of the first 4
shots, he went on to sink 63 out of
69, making one string of 37.
