Pep Meet
Fixed For
Oley OUon   Feature
Tomorrow at noon the Pep Club
opens the series of second-term Pep
meetings with the staging of Oley
Olson and hla band of versatile entertainers from the Commodore.
A prime favorite with Varsity atudenta for the past three years, the
genial maestro will offer several novelty numbers and will be assisted by
visiting artists.
The purpose of the meeting is to
settle once end for all the problem
of a name for Varsity's teams. The
Peppers, who Introduced the idea
some two years ago, hope to see their
efforts realized by the circulation of
ballots listing the moat prominent
suggestions. Voting will be carried
on throughout the meeting.
Three minutes has been allotted J.
Friend Day to discuss Varsity's
chances of downing Bates College In
the Inter-collegiate debate scheduled
for next Friday night in the Oak
Room of the Vancouver Hotel. Bates
College, one of the most famous debating colleges In the world, will
have their delegates on hand next

"Adam and Eva" is the choice of
the International Players thia week,
a play whose name suggests its character: clever, romantic and somewhat
As light entertainment this play
will satisfy the appetite of most patrons, probably, .nd yet it seems a
pity that a group invested with much
first rate talent should utilize this
exclusively on Utile, undistinguishe
comedies. Next week's prospect,
"Scrambled Wive.;," seems, from its
description, much the same. "The
Best People" was a slick comedy,
competently rendered. It was a relatively new spectacle in Vancouver
stock. But "Adam and Eva" is a diluted model of its predecessor, one of
the favorite spectacles of the late
British Guild Players. And are
not the International Players contriving to present Vancouver with a
new policy?
What is attempted, is done well.
Colin Craig, I think, gives the most
finished characterization in "Adam
and Eva," as James King, harrassed
breadwinner of an eminent Gotham
household of progeny plus in-laws.
The various parasites of his include
Uncle Horace (Harry Stafford),
Clinton De Wltt (Blair Davies),
Aunt Abby (Vane Calvert), all creditably played, and producing the calculated nastalgia.
Enter Adam Smith from an Amazon rubber plantation, exuding euphemisms of Family Life. He and
Papa happen to be business associates. So, as you guess, the two change
places in life. And in his effort to
ginger up the family, pretends (of
course) that the business suddenly
fails. All make good, as you expect,
except one of Eva'.,- wooers, Dr. Dela-
meter (James Hallett). Eventually
James King, the father, returns, and
matters evolve so Adam hitches up
with Eva, as euphony and legend demands.—J. B. C.
Othello Was No
Moral Warning
Sedgewick Analyzes
Shakespeare Character
Dr. G. O. Sedgewick deserted Hamlet for Othello on Saturday evening,
when he addressed a well-attended
meeting of the Vancouver Institute
on the subject: "Dramatic Irony aa
illustrated in Shakespeare's 'Othello'"
Oreek audiences knew the stories
of contemporary plays in all detail
before they were produced; consequently the spectators were able to
fully appreciate the irony of situations.
Dealing with various interpretations
of Othello's character, Dr. Sedgewick attacked the common assumption that he ia a man of actual,
everyday life. One 17th century critic was positive that the play was intended to be a moral warning to
daughters, wives and husbands.
The speaker stated that the lack of
intelligent criticism in literature today may be attributed to the fact
that "we read books in the way we
Puritans have been brought up to
read. them."
"I came to 'Othello' quite raw-
quite raw—but with a certain amount
of native Intelligence," declared the
eminent literateur as he told of his
first contact with the play. He is now
quite certain that "Othello" is "alive
ln the universe of art."
Dr. Sedgewick drew attention to
the necessarily condensed nature of
the characters in the play, but hastened to assure his audience that "the
psychology of life is one thing and
the psychology of drama is another."
lago, the Shylock of this play, is
"in a sense the whole machinery of
the play," declared the speaker. The
villain is perhaps the strongest mind
that Shakespeare ever created, and

Lett To Give
Law Lecture
"The Legal Profession as a Vocation" will be the subject of Mr.
Sherwood Lett's vocational guidance
lecture in Aggie 100 Friday noon. This
is the first in a series of addresses
being sponsored by the vocational
guidance committee under the chairmanship of Tommy Berto.
Mr. Lett, an outstanding U.B.C.
alumnus, was the first president of
A.M.S. (1915). Shortly after the war,
he won the Rhodes Scholarship
and studied Law at Oxford. On completion of his course at Oxford, he
took post graduate work at Vienna.
Today, still a young man, he is a
leading member of the legal profession and a partner of the firm of C.

will display their loyalty to. such
famous alumnal as Mr. Sherwood Lett
by attending this lecture. It will be
of great value to all those who entertain any thought of entering law.

Bates College Men Meet Local Team Feb. 2
The resolution "That this house

engage the interest of two representatives of the Parliamentary Forum,
Ernest Brown and Jack Conway and
a team from Bates College, Maine,
on Feb. 2, in th. Oak Room of the

It will be the fourth inter-collegiate debate for Ernest Brown, the
president of the Forum. He was asked
recently by the N.F.C.U.S. to participate in a tour of the Western
States with Eric Errey of Saskatchewan, which however, has been postponed till next November. Although

Murray graduates this year with honours in English and a Phi Beta Kappa key. He has the unusual record
of being president of his class for
three years, president of the Debating
Society and member of the Student's
Council. Seamon too, has an imposing record. He graduates this year
with honours in Economics and a Phi

lately. It was not because of lack
of material, but rather an Initial inertia which always coincides with the
thought. This, we think will be positively its last appearance.
The fact is that the militarists have
had it in the bag. At a middle western American university objectors to
compulsory military training in the

and were forced to take a long count.
The University of Washington, as

Caesar and Cleopatra Cast Announced By Players' Club
'Caesar and Cleopatra" in the spring play will be Bill Sargent and Masala Cosgrave. They won the coveted roles, two
of the most glamorous in the history of the club, at final tryouts in the auditorium on Friday afternoon. .
Selections were made by the advisory board of the Players'
Club, with Prof. F. G. C. Wood assisting.  They are:
* Caesar, Bill Sargent; Cleopatra, Masala Cosgrave; Ftatateeta, Eleanor
Gibson; Rufio, Oerald Prevost;
Charmlan, Margaret Stewart; Iras,
Mary McGeer; Ptolemy, Lloyd Hobden; Lucius, Hugh Palmer, Pothlnus,
Frank Miller,'' Theodotus, George
Johnston; Apollodorus, Oordon Hilker; Achillas, Tommy Burch.
The parts of Ka, Brltannus, centurion, sentinel and one or two other
roles are still to be assigned.
The two leads are in experienced
hands, since both Sargent and Miss
Cosgrave were in last year's spring
play, "Alibi." Sargent played the all-
important role of the French detective with conspicuous success, and
Miss Cosgrave had the part of a
housemaid who was more than she
This year they will largely have to
carry the play between them. There
are many minor roles of considerable
colour, but Cleopatra and Caesar
hold tho spotlight all the time, and
both have parts that are made difficult by their length and variety of
The only other important role for
women—and a very important one lt
is too—was won by a new member
of the club, Eleanor Gibson, who
was understudy to Mrs. Slmms-Vane
at Christmas, but has not yet been
seen on the university stage. She
will play Cleopatra's nurse, Ftatatetta,
"a huge grim woman, with the jaws
of a bull dog and the voice of a
bloodhound." .
Rufio, Caesar's rough-and-ready
general and personal friend, will be
acted by Gerald Prevost. It is a part
very similar to his Major Blunt in
"Alibi." Gordon Hilker, who will be
the gay Apollodorus, also appeared
last spring.
Margaret Stewart and Mary McGeer are to be her waiting-maids, Iras
and- Charmian.
The part of Caesar in the approaching
Spring play, "Caesar and Cleopatra",
wiU be taken by Bill Sargent. BIU
took an important role in last year's
Spring play, "Alibi," and handled it
with conspicuous success.

i/ADV      1
For a considerable time the vocational
guidance committee of the Alumnae Association, under the chairmanship of Tommy Berto,
has been working on a plan to sponsor a series
of lectures before the student body on the
choosing of a profession.
At the present time when the problem of
finding a job after graduation confronts practically all students the series should prove of
inestimable benefit. Reports from other universities show that such lectures have been
well supported and have ultimately been very
successful in acquainting students of conditions in various occupations, the obstacles to
be met, and the best method of preparation.
The first lecture of the series is to be delivered tomorrow noon by Mr. Sherwood Lett
on 'The Legal Profession.' This should prove
of interest not only to those contemplating the
study of law, but also to all those who wish to
get a comprehensive idea of what the profession offers.
Mr. Lett is well-known on the campus. He
is a graduate of this university, having been
first president of the Alma Mater Society, and
later a Rhodes Scholar. He is now legal advisor to the Alma Mater Society, secretary of
Convocation, and a member of Senate.
The efforts of the Alumnae association
should meet with the whole-hearted support
of the entire student body. An effort should
be made to show that the efforts made on our
behalf are not unappreciated.

By Eugene O'Neill.   Random House.
Writing letters to the editor is one of the
favorite indoor sports in Vancouver and its environs. Observers from near and far have remarked upon the plethora of budding correspondents who inflict their cheerful inconsequences upon the public via the daily newspapers. Statistics show that every inhabitant of
this province writes at least 1.22678 letters to
the editor during his life-time. This figure is
weighted somewhat unfairly however, since
there are some illiterate people, who have never
written a letter, while other old stand-bys we
could name have filled volumes.
The average on the campus is somewhat
lower because most of the students have not yet
reached life's appointed span. However if they
keep up their present rate of speed, they should
outstrip all competitors in short order. Which
is only right, or what is a university education for?
As far as the Ubyssey is concerned we enjoy receiving letters. They help fill up the odd
inch of space admirably. They also provoke discussion. We only complain when the correspondents have nothing to say, and insist on saying it. It all seems so unnecessary.
After considerable weighty investigation into the metaphysics of correspondence writing,
we have made the following conclusions. If you
Reviewed by Nancy Miles.
Eugene O'Neill's first comedy for some
years, Ah, Wilderness! is interesting for two
reasons. First, the play in itself has no small
intrinsic interest, being the simple story of how
a seventeen-year-old took the primrose path
and hearkened not to the call of a siren, if I
may be allowed to mix a metaphor. The second interest lies in O'Neill's treatment of the
stereotyped dramatic forms.
His mastery of drama in the pure sense
has never been doubted, but it has been difficult to compare the mature O'Neill with contemporary dramatists because of his use of obsolete dramatic forms and other devices purely
original. Now, he proves himself an equal of
the best conventional dramatists of the day.
The play is flawless in. structure and dramatic timing.
O'Neill subtitled his grisly melodrama,
"The Hairy Ape," with two words, "A Comedy;" in consequence one approaches his other
similarly subtitled works with apprehension.
In this case, such fears are groundless. The
comedy in Ah, Wilderness! is neither satirical
nor cynical; it is very delicate, with just enough
pathos to dispel the somewhat trite idea of the
tear behind the smile.
The greatest charm of the story lies with
the characters. Richard, the seventeen-year-
old, is callow in the extreme, yet one has a definite impression of elusive source that under
his callowness lies a rare fineness of character.
Richard has had less than his share of recognition from critics because the part of Mr.
Miller, the father, is taken by George M.
The vividness of the story is shown in
one's ardent subconscious hope on a complete
reading that Richard, when he is through being
callow, will drop the horrible Muriel person.
There will be a meeting of all those
interested In forming a "Group of
Solo Performers" in Ap. Sc. 100 on
Wednesday at 12:15.
The purpose of this group will be
th eadvancement of vocal and Instrumental solo work. Such an organization existed on the campus several years ago and was very successful in its activities.
Correspondence   ]
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We heard much talk on the campus
these days of the lack of Varsity
spirit. Last Friday's happenings prove
these fears to be unfounded. Allow
me, through the medium of your column to publicly express my thanks
to that handful of Sciencemen who
showed such a magnificent spirit both
in Arts 100 and in the Arts Common
Room. What a splendid example we
are given of that true gentlemanly
feeling ! What refinement! What culture! Indeed sir, I was put to shame
by such gentility, such perfect poise
and self control.
If only the University as a whole
could catch this wonderful spirit of
devotion and unselfishness. Think
what changes would be wrought
overnight! The whole aspect of the
University would be changed. Indeed
it would be hard to recognize it! I
feel indeed that such a spirit should
not merely be confined to our University, but should be carried out
into the world at large. With this
glorious spirit of brotherly love, so
ably manifested by the noble few already mentioned, would not our economic problems be already solved,
would not our fears of war vanish
and the whole world be as one nation?
I would go so far as to say that the
only hope, not of the University
alone, but of the world, is for an
I increasing number of students of this
campus to follow in the footsteps of
this noble band of gentlemen. May
we dedicate ourselves to the high
service of spreading this beautiful
spirit of consideration for others!

DIARY     V^cfT.
Did we ever have the fun at our
house the other night. My brother
being flat suggested I ask John and
he'd ask Molly his girl to come over
and we'd all play bridge and I'd tie
on the feed bags meaning I'd make
waffles which he likes especially as
it wouldn't cost him anything. I got
along all right as John doesn't know
me well enough to even notice when
I try to finesse a ten having given
up counting the trumps. Well every-
thing'was hotsy totsy until he offered us all a cigarette and not want*
ing to let Molly make me look like
something ln rompers took one,
breathing a silent prayer my brother
would keep his lip buttoned about it
being the first ona I'd ever had in
my life except that pulpy wood on
the beach you smoke when you are
kids. Well he just let out one whoop
and said haw hav/ will you look at
Fanny getting smoke ln her eyes, me
with the tears streaming down my
face and my eyes 'eelint? like they
had grapefruit juice In them. My
temper just lasted ao long and then
I made a dash for my only weapon
which is a picture of him about five
months old standing on a bear rug
in Ihe back yard, which I meanly
keep behind the clock for just such
occasions and showed it to Molly.
Well, then he started calling me
things and I burnt myself with the
cigarette which had begun all the
trouble and started to really cry and
then John suggested we ell go for a
ride in his car which has a radio so
we could listen to Guy Lombardo.
The wind sort of cooled me down, it
being the kind of night when everything is asleep but you and the wind
keeps saying shh, and I think John
and me are going to get along very
well together, hen so soothing, like
carron oil on sunburn.

"Before my story I tell to you

What happened to your missing
Did it die suddint, or did it linger?"
"Why stranger, aint' you got no tact?
Thet's no way fer a man to act.
Still—I dunno—it might be best
To get the story off my chest:
I ate my finger in the raw

(For though like blazes Joseph yelled
His willing stomach ne'er rebelled.
Forever Joe would now eschew
Both Copenhagen and the chew:
The fingernail had scratched his
And even to today Joe burps.
Who now asks Joe to eat a joint,
He holds him at revolver point.
This accident It was a shame
And surely Joe was not to blame.
A dose of physlck set him straight;
His feeble mind was filled with hate,
And other men with fingers five,
Joe had no wish tc see alive,
For, quivering, in his shaggy skull
This wretched thought he used to
Into what folly fate had led him,
For he had bit the hand that fed

I have been informed that a certain organization resented my fatherly
advice of a few issues ago. From the
impulses of my abounding good nature and an oversensitive desire not
to give offense, I will refrain from
addressing my remarks directly to it,
but if its members carefuUy dissect
the following paragraphs, they may
discover, here and there, a slight
hint as to which particular organization I refer.
Last week I attended the production of "A Doll's House." I hope some
of the members o. the organization
which I carefully avoid naming were
in the house. If they devoted a little
of their time to analyzing the performance, instead of merely enjoying
it, it will perhaps assist them in their
future activities in that field which
shall remain, unspecified, as far as
this article is concerned.
I do not advance the play in all its
aspects for a model for my anonymous
friends. The feminine contingent
should avoid the tactics of the leading
lady. Her characterization was excellent, but it requires a command of
emotional expression that is not common, and a training that few have patience enough to achieve, lt would be
better for both the males and females to dissect and profit from the
restrained, definite and carefully studied style of William Buckingham who,
in fact, once graced their ranks. His
performance was well finished and
artistic, and as it w_s achieved through
hard work and application, it is a possible goal for anyone. Of course, if
there are any geniuses in the ranks,
(and there are usually one or two),
they may derive inspiration from Miss
Miller, but let them use discretion.
They must walk a narrow path between the pitfalls of absurd exaggeration and egotistical monopolization. Not all will be able to tread as
accurately as this young lady, but
those that do will have taken the first
step on the road to artistry.
The actors, however, are the least
part of a play. They are merely tools
in the hands of the director. It was a
joy to watch the mechanism of the
piece running so smoothly under the
veneer of words. It never obtrued it-
seli', it never failed at the critical moment. It was well planned and efficient. Tlie players were never at a loss
as to where to stand, when to move,
how far to go, when to get there, and
what to do after they had arrived.
Each step and action had its cue and
its purpose. That curse of amateur
acting, individual initiative, was eliminated. Every action was related to
every other action; every move had
its logical and proper response. The
play was a play, not a crowd of emotional orators treading on each other's toes.
In other words, it had timing and
finish. This can be achieved by any
amateur company that is not composed
of positive idiots, but, unfortunately,
it usually is not. The elements required  for this  desirable  consummation
are simple and few. They are a cour
ageous director, a willing cast, and
an interminable succession of slave-
driving rehearsals. If the director
weakens enough to moderate absolute
dictatorship, or the actors refuse to
submerge their individual concepts o.
their parts, it is hopeless. If there is
a "star" in the company, it should be
quietly strangled before the scripts
are handed out.
My unnamed friends are members of
an organization which haa often reflected glory on its Alma Mater and
justified its own existence. It has the
ability and opportunity to do it again.
All it needs now is work, work, more
work—and a director who is boss,
knows she is boss, and has no false
modesty about insisting she is boss.
Has it got them?
• *   •
Two organizations on the campus are
run by private individuals for profit.
The only excuse for their existence
is the rendering of services that a
university owned business cannot. As
long as they function efficiently, they
justify their presence.
One is the cafeteria. If the students
are satisfied with the food and service they get there, it is their own affair. Personally, I have ceased to insult my Internal economy, and now
carry a lunch.
The other is the Book Store. Apparently its proprietors regard it as a
species of pension for which an unjust public remand them to perform
intolerable menial service. The customer is not only treated without courtesy, but is overwhelmed with an atmosphere of indignant martrydom
which emanates from the heroically
suffering slaves of the counter. It is
most disturbing to sensitive persons
like myself.
As the majority of undergraduates
are thicker skinned than I am, this
might be disregarded, but when it
comes to a negligent performance of
duty that condemns the largest part
of a Year to struggle through most of
a term without texts essential to their
work, it is a different matter. The
proprietors of the Book Store were informed last May of the required text
for the Spring Term of English One.
Between that time and the Christmas
holidays, even their liesurely methods
should have allowed them time to find
out the number of freshmen in the
class, and order to necessary books.
Instead, they decided that it was up
to the English Department to inform
them of the size of the class, and they
waited from September till January
without asking the Department, or
taking note of what was published in
the Ubyssey, the daily press, or broadcast by the registrar's office. This
masterly example of thumb-twiddling
somnolence will result in the aspiring
scholars of Arts '37 being lectured to
in January on literature that they
will not be able to read until February or March, if then.

At the Fight
Nemesis overtook the all-powerful
red-shirt Monday when a yelling
horde of Artsmen invaded his domain
in answer to a stinging challenge issued last week. After reducing the
Arts Commmon Room table to a mass
of wreckage, a raiding band of Sciencemen had hurled a taunt at pursuing blueshirts. "Come on over to
our place sometime."
Artsmen came over Monday noon.
They seized the prized possession of
the future engineers, an upright piano of noble proportions, and transferred it across a hundred yards of quad
to their own sanctuary. They set a
guard, and proceeded, to sing to hi|h

humiliating for a certain hapless, (and
clotheless, too) Arstman who found
himself ready for an English II class

sing brilliantly, and enchant in the

and sympathetic quality of their
voices as well as through their technical mastery. They transformed the

Soccermen Lose
To Maccabees
' Than is a superstition in athletic
circles in general and, it seems, in
soccer circles in" particular that no
team can have its picture taken before a match and win. 3,000 fans who
crowded Cambie Street Grounds on
Saturday afternoon are more than
ever convinced of this.
Just before engaging Maccabees in
a regular V. and D. 1st Division fixture Varsity Senior Soccermen posed
ln front of a panorama camera. They
then went on to absorb a 3-0 defeat,
though they scarcely deserved this
wide margin on the run of the play.
That's the story in a nutshell. Below it a more detailed account.
Vanity APPEARS Dangerous
Varsity opened strongly, carrying
the ball into the enemy's danger zone,
where Martin miswd from close range.
Maccabees replied with a counterattack which also ended fruitlessly.
Thus things went on for the first
half hour, play transferring rapidly
from one end of the field to the
other. Varsity, however, appeared
more dangerous at this stage than
their opponents, and but for extremely weak finish would have gone
ahead. As it was, the sum of their
efforts came to naught
Massabees forced a few scattered
corners at Varsity's end, but these
brought no desired results, and it
teemed at if the half waa going to
end without a goal. But a minute
before the whistle went Maccabees'
speedy centre snapped up the ball
at it bounced off e Varsity back Just
inside tbe penalty area and scored
with a low left-foot drive.
Hunter Eels Way Through
No sooner was the game resumed
than Varsity's hopes of victory received another shock. Young Hunter, of the notorious North Shore
tribe bearing that name, eeled his
way through the Varsity defence and
neatly deposited the sphere in the net.
At this point Varsity substituted
Smith for Costain while the Macs
also brought on a fresh man. But
still Varsity's forwards could not
"click" together. In fact, the whole
eleven was losing the lively mood in
which it started, ancl a tally was consequently not forthcoming. Yet Varsity had some glorious opportunities
On one occasion Todd's bullet shot
hit the custodian and on another
Wolfe's drive from a spot kick sizzled no more than a foot above the
Kozoolin  Misses
Half way through this period Maccabees secured their marker on a
tricky little play between their centre
and his right-hand man. No further
scoring took place, but Kozoolin shot
wide with only the goalie to beat just
before the end.
The team: Greenwood, McGill,
Waugh, Thurber, Wolfe, Stewart, Costain, Smith, Kozoolin, Martin, MacDougall, Todd.

Tomorrow (D.V.) the Senior team
and their supporters will leave the
city for the country side, with Chilliwack their destination, and Chilliwack All Stars their opponents.
Final plans for the trip will be made
known at a meeting of the Soccer
Club in Room 102 at 12:10 today.

Varsity won the first round of the
English Rugby knockout tournament
on Saturday by beating the Rowing
Club 13-6.
The game was ragged at the start
with Varsity's scrum being overpowered practically every time. The
Rowing Club had control. for the
first half and except for a few vigorous thrusts by Varsity their line
was not in danger,
Rowers Open Scoring
Mclntyre of the Rowing Club
opened the scoring following a fine
run by Mitchell. After thit the student pack pressed more strongly, but
were unable to score. Half-time came
with the score 3-0 in favour of the
Rowing Club.
After the Intermission Varsity's play
improved greatly. The scrum packed
better and managed to heel the ball
.occasionally; the three quarters handled better and made some good runs.
Varsity Scores In Second Half
From the whistle Varsity pressed,
the forwards taking the ball at their
feet. After a fine 40 yard run started by Ken Mercer, Moriss.went over
for Varsity's first touch. Dalton converted with a fine kick.

St. Philips Defeat
Junior Soccermen
The Junior Soccerites went down
to defeat before St. Phillips on Saturday at Memorial Park. The score
ending three to one. The game was
close most of thi way until Varsity
couldn't take It any longer and the
Saints forged ahead.
The first half ended with no goals
being scored by either team. This
was a good indication of the play as
it was very even, both teams missing
chances. All the Blue and Gold Soccerites played a fair game. Our new
centre-half was laid out for awhile,
but resumed playing, although not
quite  so  strenuously.
Two minutes after the start of the
second half, Bardwell put In a hard
shot from the wing which bounded
off the Saint's goalie; Irish scored on
the rebound. St. Phillips retaliated
and scored. After that the Juniors
wilted and the Saints put in two
more goals.
Atwater played a fine game at half
back; Denne at full back was kept
busy and did fine work; Lloyd tried
hard at centre forward; and Darwin
did well nt his first time in goal.
The team was as follows: Darwin,
Denne, Moodie, Chester, Loat, Atwater, Irish, Godard, Lloyd, Orme,
Bardwell and Robson.
Last Friday in New Westminster
Y.M.C.A. the Blue and Oold Senior
"A"-b_sketballers whitewashed B. k
W. Oilmen in a fast league encounter. Tha Students played a bang-up
game, looking like a championship
team throughout. The final score
waa 40-15 for Varsity.
Varsity started slowly, feeling their
way, and passing the ball around in
the centre of the court. In consequence the lubrication melon-sllngers
took a five point lead early in the
game. However, Varsity settled down
to steady playing soon after this and
it was curtains for B. and W. thereafter, as they didn't score another
point in this half. The score at the
breather was 13-3 for the Collegians.
Students Look Oood In Second Half
The second half was much more
one-aided than the first, with Varsity working tome smooth plays. The
Students team-work In thit period
wu pretty to watch, and their playa
clicked time after time at they piled
up an overwhelming lead on Coach
Montgomery's boys. Varsity wat on
the offensive throughout the period,
and out-scored their opponents 27-10.
Captain "Tony" Osborne played a
fine game for the Students, substantially raiting hit average when he
amassed thirteen points.

Mercers who is playing hit third
year in the Senior Division, thit time
aa Captain. Next Saturday the Blue
and Gold fifteen take on Vancouver
Rep. in the McKechnie Cup game for

their first encounter with the students. Once more the old slogans of
"Back the Pack" and "Rap the Rep"
are being used to secure student support. Sport enthusiasts of every kind
are assured of a good game.
Men's Athletic
Meeting. Friday
There will be a general meeting of
Men's Athletics on Friday to consider
the major sport problem. It was
agreed by the executives of the various sport clubs that the coming
meeting should be the final one on
that question.
Students who are at all interested
in sport should consider carefully the
various factors involved in determining what sports should be major ones
for the next year. At a meeting held
earlier this year, it was suggested
that soccer be raised to a major
sport. The questions now to be settled are: should there be five major
sports, should some sport which is
at present a major sport be demoted
to make way for soccer; should soccer's promotion be rejected.
Members of the Men's Athletic Association (that is every male student
at the University) should think carefully about this matter and be prepared to come to Fridays meeting
early and cast their vote in an intelligent manner.
Saturday's Game
Saturday wat the occasion of another time honored battle with the
Fraser aquad. The first half waa a
walkaway for Varsity. Wiiloughby
and McDonald played well together,
and between them worked teveral
playa that gave the boys a substantial lead. 7n thia fashion the flrat
half continued, and ended with the
rather one-sided score of 25-7.
The second half waa a different
matter, and the teams were fairly
evenly matched, both scoring the
same number of points during the
period. Varsity was playing the
newly signed men, and though they
were playing well they lacked the
experience that makes finished basketball. Due mainly to the nice playing of Harold Davies the Royal City
Squad were working through the U.
B.C. defence quite frequently though
not In any way to endanger the game.
A latt minute rally gave Vanity another easy victory by a score of
Mansfield Show* Well
Tommy Mansfield wat signed on
and proved himself an able recruit
ln the week-end games . Oeorge
Pringle will probably be back In the
game at the beginning of the week.
He hat just recovered from an Illness that hat .prevented hit playing
for several weeks.
On Wednesday the team travels to
New Westminster to play the Adanacs. This will be a crucial game,
because a win for the Adanacs will
put them at the top of the league
along with Varsity.
