"YOU AND I"

Casta Wins Popularity From
Vancouver Audience
^   .1, ii. «ir,n. i >■■■
Scoring a huge success Monday
night at the Orpheum Theatre th»
University Players' Club opened their
three Hay*' run of "You and I" before
a packed house. The presentation of
Phillip Barry's prise play reflects
great credit on those members of the
Players' Club that have given their
time* to make it such a success. The
presentation of some of the difficult
roles shows ttat Professor P. 0. 0.
Wood must have spent a great deal Of
effort In bringing some parts of the
play to the polished perfection that
was reached.
In the heavier socnes the actor
were particularly excellent and used
everything that Harry gave them to
advantage. The lighter sections of
the play were not so well done, Monday night, although Avis Pumphrey
as a maid with aspirations of becoming a "real lady" presented the part
of Etta well. The play itself was
weak In some Of the comedy scenes
and tended to degenerate into vaudeville.

B.C. BOXERS WIN
TWO OUT OF SIX
Mulhern and Stewart Win For
Varsity
Eddie Mulhern and Pinky Stewart,
Vr.rnlty mltl wlelders, upheld the honor of the blue and gold by winning out
in their classes against the fast-stepping and hard-hitting Washington University leather pushers last Saturday
night at the Beatty Street drill hall
when boxers of both colleges performed before a capacity crowd. The American won four out of the six encounters and the boys from the south
showed a lot of class, hence all the
more honor to Pinky and Muthern for
winning their bouts.
There were two knockouts during
the evening. The first came with startling suddenness In the 115-lb. fight,
when Pinky Stewart of U. B. C. put
Al Weymouth out of the way after two
minutes of sparring. The Seattle boy
Is still wondering what hit him. Pinky
may have been lucky but it looked
like a mean wallop and It produced
results. The second knockout came
In the last fight of the evening when
Herman Hopkins of the Sound City
squad came luto the ring looking like
a MB-lb. Dempaey ami knocked Jack
Kask of IT. H. C. for a row of California bungalows, Kask nrp.l not feel
badly about his defeat, however, as
his victor was one of the best men on
the squad.
There was only one bout that the
'udges disagreed on and that was In
the I,'IB-lb, clans w'len Jack (Illlson
of U, B. f. and .ferry Curry, staged a
h*ctlc battle and went two minutes
overtime. Curry was Ihe better boxer
and Ollllson the better fighter; referee Addison was justified In awarding

Bob Brown's Cup Brought to
Permanent Home
Varsity's blue and gold Canadian
rugby squad, copped the Bob Brown
Cup, emblematic of the B. C, Cham*
plonship when they took the long end
of n 2741 count against the St. Marks
plsakln chasers before 1400 wildly excited fans at the Athletic Park enclosure last Saturday. Varsity's Canadian rugby men are entitled to congratulations. They have worked hard
for their victory and they deserve all
credit for bringing another championship to U. B. C. to replace the McKechnie Cup. Whether rugby as played under the Canadian or the English
code, is the better game, has nothing
to do with the fact that'Lever Bates'
huskies have showed a fighting spirit
and a gameness that cannot help but
win the admiration of any unbiased
sportsman within or without the college. By winning thlc championship
varsity has probably firmly entrenched the Eastern game at U. B. C.

Musical Society Give Excellent
Programme at Wesley
The Ninth Annual Concert of the
Musical Society in Wesley Church on
Friday night was In a Rood many respects the best In the history of the
Society, certainly the best In the last
six years. Within the limits
assigned for t'lls criticism it is impossible to speak of each number—
only the salient features of the programme as a whole can be noted.
The orchestra has a larger proportion of inexperienced players than last
year. That fact probably accounts
for the obvious lack of confidence in
attack, and the timidity with which

Spring Concert Best Yet
(Continued from Page 1)
they played through the nobler, gratifying passages or particular numbers.
On the other hand there was, on the
whole, a notable advance In point of
tunefulness, and who shall say tthat
tunefulness Is not a fundamental excellence In orchestral performance? Usually the wind instruments are the offenders when the pitch goes woolgathering, but on Friday night they
played with commendable accuracy,
and If they lacked decision, thoy also
lacked Btrldenoy. The violins responded excellently to the conductor's baton
and did much to dispel the general
suggestion of timidity which, on the
whole, characterized the performance
of the orchestra.
On every count, save that of balance of parte, the chorus surpassed Us
performance of last year, and that
means that It surpassed all Its previous performances. Mr. Wilbur Grant,
the conductor, Is to be congratulated
on the Improvement he has made in
tiie chorus. The standard of the pieces selected Is considerably higher this
year, as a comparison of the programme with programmes of former years
will show, and the performance justified the advance of standard. Nover
has the organisation shown such good
discipline. The singers responded to
the baton in a way that would suggest double the number of rehearsals.
Perhaps Mr. Grant might have got
even better results out of his chorus
if ho had thrown himself a trifle more
into the actual conducting of the concert; but that, after all, Is the conductor's own affair. The attacks were refreshingly procloo and tihe releases almost as good. The fact Is that the
chorus was more familiar with the
score than at any previous concert
and was therefore able to pay more
attention to the baton. This was especially noticeable In Bridge's "Bold
Turpin" which would have lost all Its
hilarity and abandon had not the chorus been able to sing practically without hook. As It was, part of this selection and of "The Viking Song" were
performed with dlstlctlon, not to say
virtuosity. Furthermore the chorus
was able to maintain pitch In a way It
has never been able to do before, and
this, too, in spite of the fact that the
church did not appear to have been
aired since the previous Sunday.
To speak of the balance of the chorus, the programme announced a tenor section of four singers, but this
section was actU''.l!y represented by
!'■()! This number was Increased to
three when the concert melster of th"
orchestra came to the rescue. Hut the
section was not nearly so frail as
these numbers would suggest, for fre-
ouently the rest of the chorus, far
from submerging, did not outbalance
them. The basses sang with vigor, and
pave fair stability to the other parts.
The chief defect In this section was
the fact that there were very few real
second bass voices In It ; baritones cannot be expected to give the solidity
that Is necessary as the ground work
for chorus singing. The altos sang
with confidence, and produced some
rich effects, especially In "The Slumber Song." The soprano section un-
ottestlonably carried off the palm.
Never have the sopranos of the Musical Society sung with such confidence and with such decision. High
notes were attacked without timidity, and the effect was one of precision without shrillness of Intonation.
The asslstlnir artists, Miss Una Calvert, pianist, Miss Joy Calvert, violinist, and Miss Mav Tnylor, vocalist, all
performed ndmlrsbly and each was encored. Miss Ida Kerr and Miss Gertrude Dowslev al the piano, accompanied Ihe Olee Club and Orchestra
respectively, wllh taste and Judgment.

RUGGERS WIN
PERMANENT CUP
(Continued from Page 1)
Varsity had It all over Saint Marks
like a tent and the motto of the "ealy
bird gettlns the worm" was clearly
demonstated by the students, because
(their superior condition was a direct
rosult of the 7 am. practises. The
collegians had more aggressiveness
than their opponents, although the red
and white squad pulled off some neat
plays.
Varsity opened the scoring when
Sohults grabbed the tall from a St.
Marks fumble thirty yards out. The
VnrsltyMcKeohnle star plunged over
the line for Ave points. Anderson
railed to convert. Hall's stellar kicking kept the churchmen in their own
territory, Harry Seed, of Freshmen
rugby fame, showed a wonderful burst
of speed whon he got away with the
ball and circled around for Varsity's
second touch which was not converted.
This reverse put new life Into the
red and white shirts and they pressed
hard on the students' two-bit line,
their efforts being rewarded when Mc-
Farlane got over and had his try converted, the score then being 10-6. Here
ended the first lesson In Canadian
ruirby.
The second quarter found Varsity
playing down hill and assuming a very
strong offensive. Schultz again went
over this time, Anderson converted
nnd the score stood at lti-ti, Heed took
a nose dive over tihe St. Marks defenders heads and scored another touch
making the score 21-0 at half time.
Upon resumption of play the churchmen took Ihe offensive and showed
up to better advantage than In any
other of the four periods. The students seemed to get their signals mixed and only tiheir superior condition
saved the day for them. McLean
plunged over for Saint Mark's' second
try which was converted. Just he-
fore the third canto Hall punted the
ball over the deadline and so gained
another point for the blue and gold,
the  score   bellltf   22-11.
Varsity worked their signals well

THE   UBYSSEY
March 19th, 1929
DAVE WARDEN INJURED
The I'byssey, on behalf of the stu
dents, wishes to extend lis sincere
sympathy to David Warden of Arts '27,
who recently sustained an Injury to
his eye on being hit by a piece or tin-
toll shot from an elastic band by some
thoughtless fellow-student. This Injury necessitates his absence from
the University for the remainder of
tills term, and may cause him to lose
the sight of his eye. Dave Is nit outstanding member of his year, for his
academic record, his participation in
athletics, and his interest In student
affairs in general. For the past session he has been connected with the
Ubyssey, and has done splendid work
as a reporter. It is a pity that the
childish antics of a crowd of Idlers
should Injure a person who Is really
an asset to his college.
OXFORDIZING AMHERST
Twenty Amherst juniors and seniors who have maintained an average
of 85 per cent, or better In their class
work, have been granted the privilege
of attending classes at their own discretion. This new freedom follows an
announcement of the creation of a
"dean's list," which includes the names
of those students who "may wisely
be trusted with the responsibility of
regulating their own Attendance at
class exercises."
Recent discussion of the Oxford academic system by the Oxford debaters
aroused considerable comment upon
our campus. The consensus of opinion seemed to be that the Oxford custom of optional class attendance Is a
laudable one.

Ubyssey Appointments
Miss Sadie Boyles has been appointed Senior Editor of the Ubyssey for
the following year. Miss Boyles has
had two yearB experience on the staff,
serving first as reporter and, for lihe
last year and a half, as associate editor. Her very capable work In these
positions has eminently qualified her
for the responsible post which she
will All.
Three associate editors have been
appointed. In order of seniority they
are: William Murphy, Wanetta Leach
and Dave Warden. Mr. Murphy has
done very efficient work as associate
editor during the past year, wfalle
Miss Leach brings to her work the experience of two years as assistant editor on the Annual staff. Mr. Warden
is a member of Arts '27 and has done
excellent work as a reporter this year.
Mr. Don Gillingham of Arts '28, also
a member of this year's reporting
staff, has been appointed 'Chief Reporter.
It is expected that the Ubyssey will
be converted Into a bi-weekly with the
opening of tihe first term at Point
rey. This will necessitate additions
to and changes In the Publications
staff. These, If made, will not be announced until the fall term, as a definite decision regarding the change
has not as yet been made.
The responsible position of Business Manager hns been given to Mr.
Harold MacWIlllams of Arte '27. Harold has been attached to the staff as
business assistant during the past
year, and It is expected that he will

iraiiager of this year's Annual has
accepted the position of Circulation
Manager.

NO INTEREST IN MUSIC
Dear Sir:—
In the general Interest of the university I think some comment on the
Musical Society, its concert In Wesley
Church on Friday evening, and the
attitude of the student body In relation to both, is timely and Important.
By general admission, the concert
was easily the best In the history of
the Society. More than half the programme was composed of choral or
orchestral number, contributed by the
students themselves. The choral work
was excellent throughout. The orchestral numbers were both In material and performance better than
any of (he Society's concerts that I
have heard. Ths playing at times
showed almost professional confidence, and throughout there was none
of that uncertainty and fumbling that
make a friendly audience nervous during the number and relieved at. Its
conclusion.
These being my own Impressions of
the contributions of the students to
the concert, It only remains to say
that the three soloists were all thoroughly satisfying. The concensus of
opinion of all with whom I have discussed the concert is that the Society
Is to be congratulated, that everybody
present had a thoroughly artistic and
enjoyable evening, and received excellent value lor the admission price
charged.
So much for the concert. What
about the attendance?
Wesley Church was not more than
one-third filled. The audience was
practically composed of friends of (he
performers, with an encouraging per
cent tine of members of Faculty. One
looked In vain for the faces of students in Wesley Churo'.i on Friday
nik'ht. Less that: one dozen tiekets
were sold to the student body, though
tiekets were on stile in the main hall
of  Ihe Arts  huildlni;  for a  week
These renditions give one furiously
to think. What is the status of music
in the I'nlverslty of British Columbia"
The facts would appear to Indicate
that considerably more than a thousand of the student body have little or
no Interest whatever In appreciation
of music as a factor In personal enjoyment, or of Its development as »
cultural expression of general university life I think this cannot but
be regarded as very regrettable,
Whether one considers the large
number of students participating, the
performance of musical Interest or the
frequent opportunities for Its gratification, music Is Justified in taking and
maintaining a high place among tihe
plea tire's of all those privileged In
securing a liberal education. The
Musical Society of the University
ought, as a matter of right, lo take a
correspondingly Important place In the
Interest and support of all within the
university. The attendance at Friday's concert Is, as a matter of fact,
a rellectlon on all who could be, but
were not_  present.
I hope 'the Musical Society will not
be tllscouaged because of this apparent apathy, but will, next year, give
us as i/oo'I perhaps even a better
concert limn the one some of us en-
Joyed so thoroughly on Friday night,
and when they do. my hope Is that
there will be no such grounds for criticism as was the case last week, because of students' non-attendance.
Your very truly,
Unbiased.
XERXES FIRED!
Editor, the Ubyssey: —
Just a few lines to tell you what I
think of you for firing me off your
rag. I don't care, anyway, 'cause I'm
graduating and you got a rotten paper,
anyhow, and besides that I made your
paper what It Is to-day. The trouble
with both you and Elsinore Is that
you are Jealous of my Journalistic
ability, so there,
i don't bear any Ill-will to you or
your staff, but I hope the whole bunch
or you fall In all your exams. You're
a bunch of stiffs, and don't know nuth-
ln' nohow   about anything.
As to that big bum, the chief reporter, 1 hope ho has to live with
the editor-in-chief all his life, or something Just as bad.
Hoping you are the same,
A.  Xerxes  McQoockle,
P.S.—Tell the new editor (the one
with the face), that he's an inane ass-
lnlty, and has as much sense as the
Senior editor. (Don't tell him I said
so.)

LETTER FROM WASHINGTON
Below Is a letter Just received from
on official in the Department of Aquatics al the University of Washington,
commending the sportsmanship or the
U. B. 0. team of rowers who have
recently returned from competing
down there. The communication Is
addressed to Mr. Hugh McLean and
reads as follows:
"We were very pleased to have competed with your University on the
water. Your boys made a wonderful
impression here, both as gentlemen
and oarsmen . it was anybodys race
until the last stroke was pulled and
no doubt If the U. B. C. boys had been
more used to the boat and oars they
would have won quite handily. It Is
our hope that this Is but the beginning of aquatic relations between the
two sister universities. Rest assured
anything that can be done by us to
assist you will be done. 1 congratulate you upon this splendid beginning.
Most sincerely,
Rusty   Callow."

Frosh Pep Meeting
(Continued from Page 1)
tertalnment; one that required talent
and necessitated day a of preparation.
The first Hem on the programme featured J. Ghapelle and S. McOlnnls In
a peppy and amusing duet, "Walla
Walla.1' Such was the delight of the
audience that it shrieked for an encore and the youths returned to warble again about ham and eggs and
the joys of farm life.
The songaton were succeeded by
Miss M. Brown who gave a reading
on the behaviour of a certain demure
little boy that had lost favOr In the
family all because of a baby.
When the curtain arose for the
third Item there dashed Into view two
gypsy dancers. Miss Allhan and Mr.
Anderson, and the stage was immediately transformed Into a riot of color, and animated with swaying, fantastic forms. But suddenly a strange
Individual appeared on the platform.
The audience gased In amusement.
It was Bill Turpin. Apparently he
had been lured by the flashing gypsy
eyes, and wild horses could not draw
him away. Furthermore his reason
lied from him, and, forgetting all the
ethics of this institution ho tossed
ten whole cents to the dancer. As
mysteriously as he arrived, however.
Rill disappeared (someone claimed
that a marshal had grabbed him), and
the dance continued with the same
wild passion. That the gypsy youth
was wildly in love was evident from
the way the girl broke from his embrace at the crucial moment. Of
course, the great thing would have
happened but as usual the curtain
fell before the disappointed audience
nil too soon.
Clever acting made the skit "O'Haf-
ferty vs. Tin Lung," the crowning feature of the hour. The whole play revolved around the fact that a certain Chinese laundryman, Tin Lung,
had taken the customers away from
a certain old washwoman, Mrs. Jane
Flaherty Rafferty O'Hafferty. The
case was taken to eourt Immediately
and presented to the worthy judge.
Unfortunately the prosecuting and defending lawyers had obtained a bottle
of Intoxicants and were In no tit condition to dispute the question on hand.
There was one witness, a really
brilliant youn<: man, dressed with sartorial perfection, who went under the
name of Pinky, the distinguished
heail ol' the hire and ribbon department Hi Woolworlh'H fifteen cent store.
With the testimonies of this Hclitle-
nuin, Ihe rihnlil ehiniiniitn wits found
vulllv and lined two hundred dollars.
The court broke up in meat confusion
when the accused attempted to escape. <i. Davidson was outstanding
us the reviling Mrs. O'Hafferty. The
rest of the cast Included J. Williams,
the judge; F. Herto and L. Brown, the
lawyers; Matdley, Mr, Pinky; and F.
Maikawa. Tin Tung.
After the Freshmen had tried out
their new song, which a first year
student recently composed, the orchestra concluded the programme with
an encore of the popular "University March." Much of the excellence
of the musical selections was due to
the splendid conduction of Mr, C.
Haden Williams of the Capitol Orches
tra, who had consented to lead the
musicians of Arts '28 without accepting any remuneration.
Those In charge of the Pep meeting
extend to him their heartiest thanks.
The orchestra consisted of 0. Anderson, J. Curr'e, l». Darling, ft. Jones, It.
Lucas, <\ Ma'dson, F. Saunders, M.

Kbony twigs I saw
Patterned against a sunset sky of coral and amber.
The air was sharp with frost
And the twigs black with ebony
And the sky golden and rose.
The glow fnded,
And a star quirked through;
Still the twigs were lacquered
Against the dead sunset,
Wonderful patterns they made
Of curious faces,
—Things known In forgotten dreams,
And the creatures seen In tire-embers
yesterday.
The sky pictures have faded,
And the sunset is long dead;
But, oh, the twigs are living things!
See; they wave dark fingers at me,
And the boughs moan In the wind.

Tenth Annual Performance a Success
WBevmaaxaaBmmtmmmmem
(Continued from Page 1)
As a mother faking a difficult place
In the home where a father has become dluaatisfied with his business
and longs to go back to his painting,
Mi*s Bice Clegg presented the role of
Nancy White with an ease and charm
that won the audience for her through*
out Miss Clegg had the most difficult role of the evening but her easy
appearance on the stage marked her
as one of the most successful leading
ladles that the Players' Club has had.
Peter Price, talcing the part of her
husband, a successful business man
whose ambition to become a painter
had been thwarted until he was forty
years of age, was delightful. He oar-
rled himself well on the stage and
had a dignified air of a successful
man. it was hard for many of the
University people, however, to overcome the feeling that it was Peter
Price and not Maltland White who
was on the stage.
Oenone Balllle, charming and
young as the lively Veronica Duane,
won the whole audience as soon as
she appeared on the stage. She took
a part that came to her with ease,
and, with Kenneth Caple, a Roderick
White, entered into a delightful and
romantic love affair which ended happily, although for a time It was threatened by her unselfish desire to see
that his career as an architect was not
ruined.    Both Miss Baillle and Ken
neth Caple were well received and
their freshness appeared to eclipse
the other leading members of the
cast. Miss Balllle's costumes were
decidedly becoming.
Tommy Taylor, as Geoffrey Nichols,
was decidedly a leader In the genuine
wit and fun making of the play. He
had a romantic but short affair with
the family servant which was well
presented. Tommy Taylor was the
most free and natural actor on the
stage.
Avis Pumphrey, as Etta White, the
maid, had a hard part, to portray, for
she had to bring considerable contrast Into her actions. Having aspirations to become a "real lady" the servant almost got into serious difficulties
when taken as one of the guests. She
was delightful when posing as a model for Mr. White to paint.
Harry Warren took the part of O.
T. Warren, a hard headed, practical,
business man who was not the least
ron antic and who translated everyone's actions Into dollars and cents.
Mr. Warren was one or the most sue
oossful persons on the stage.
Everyone was decidedly taken with
"the Inspiration and patroness of the
art of painting" in the person of Gene-
vlve. The Player's Club was short of
a suitable actor for this part so they
called in Genevlve, a sawdust doll, to
play the role.

Freshmen Hikers
Jazz at Hollyburn
Freshmen had the laugh on Jupiter
Pluvlus last Saturday afternoon when
they held their spring hike to West
Vancouver, for by the time Old Jupe
had recovered from his surprise and
had unwound his famous hose the
three hundred students, incluilng t'te
patrons, Mr. and Mrs. Soward, were
sheltered under the big roof of the
Hollyburn dance hall. The hikers
walked exactly one hundred ami elghy
five yards.
At six o'clock the dancers sat down
to a supper which even surpnn.-'ed that
of the fall hike.
The main attractions of the supper,
how-vet', were found In the three hundred bottles of pop, which were distributed  among the "hikers."
The dancers stopped exactly at 7
o'clock and the crowd departed to
Journey to Vancouver a^ain 0:1 the
chart'ied West Vancouver ferry, leaving Old Jupe rumbling, raving and
cussing, all because It was spring and
his hose had failed to function at the
crucial moment.
