WESBROOK
CEREMONIES
AT NOON
Today the senior claaa will pay
tribute to the memory of a great
man In the history of our university. That man ia Dr. Wesbrook,
the flret preaident of the University
of British Columbia.
In 1913 Dr. Wesbrook gave up
his position as Dean of the College
of Medicine and Surgery, and, appointed by the government, came
out to the Coast to help establish
the university in the old shacks at
Fairview.
Before the university began instruction, Dr. Wesbrook spent careful years pf planning and preparation, sparing no effort to see that
the foundations for a seat of higher
learning were well laid.
Clearing operations were undertaken at the site in Point Grey
and work was beginning on the Science building when the outbreak of
the World War put a stop to his
ambitious plans.
From 1915 to 1918 Dr. Wesbrook
carried on under great difficulties.
With very little money, with a
small staff, and with a student body
almost deplete of men, he worked
courageously and unceasingly to
make a success of his project.
Just before the Armistice, Dr.
Wesbrook died. He had not lived
long enough to see his "promised
land" a realization, but by those of
us here today his memory and what
he has clone for our university has
not been forgotten.
U.S. Elections
Topic For Forum
Len Martin and Harold
Rome Lead Argument
"Resolved, that in the interests
of the United States, the Roosevelt
Administration should be re-elected," will be the topic under fire at
the meeting of the Parliamentary
Forum tonight.
Leonard Martin, well known to
university students as a debater of
high calibre, will lead fer the affirmative, and Harold Rome, who has
a record as a brilliant speaker will
oppose him. An open discussion
will follow the two main speeches.
There will be an innovation in
the meetings of the Parliamentary
Forum. At the suggestion of Professor Day, a different member of
the Faculty will be asked to preside over each meeting, although
Mr. Day will continue to attend the
meetings as usual.
The executive extends a cordial
invitation to all to come out tonight. Impromptu speaking is, of
course, voluntary and discussion is
lively and interesting. The meeting
will be held in Arts 100, at 7.30.
Phrateres Play
Ping-Pong
Housing Problem Solved
Madge Neill, President of Phrateres, announces with enthusiasm
the choice of a club-room at the
home of Eleanor Leith, 1808 McGill.
"It is only a ten-minute walk
from the University and all that
could be desired," say the Room
Committee, composed of Madge
Neill, Norah Sibley and Anna Root.
Its furniture at present consists
solely and simply of a ping-pong
table, but the executive predicts the
speedy arrival of the necessary
chairs and rugs once the members
>ee the room.
Bacteriology Department
Would Like New Degree
Faculty and Students Would Approve B.Sc.
But Some Doubt Its Practicability
Debaters Choose
Gould and Baird
The conferring of a separate degree on those students
registered in the faculty of arts and science and taking a
science course would apparently meet with the approval of
the majority of students in the bacteriology department,
judging from those who have expressed their views on the
subject. Members of the faculty are on the whole in favor
of the change, though some do not believe it would be
practical.
OR. DOLMAN
"I am not sure the change would
be feasible in this university," declared Dr. Dolman, head of the department of bacteriology and preventive medicine. "The conferring
of a B.Sc. degree upon graduates
in practical science subjects becomes more reasonable in proportion to the extent to which the
students involved are deemed to
have a sufficient background in the
'humanities' to be able to concentrate upon their science subjects
from the time of entering university."
DR. DUFF
"I can certainly see the science
students' viewpoint," said Doctor
Duff. "They receive an entirely
different type of training from arts-
men,' but this is not shown in the
degree of B.A. They have every justification for feeling the way they
do."
NOTICE
Don't forget the Literary Forum
Tea at 2.30 this afternoon in the
Lower Women's common room. . . .
All interested and others are cordially  invited to attend.
INSTRUCTOR
An instructor is of the same
opinion. "There certainly should
be a separate faculty." he stated,
"though I don't think it will go
through till the university is much
larger. We would need a dean for
the new faculty, and that would
cost a lot of money.
"The  reason  for having  it  is
clear.    I get an M.A. after working hard 50 hours a week for two
years.   Someone else does twelve
hours French a week for one year
and gets the same degree.   Naturally I'm a little hurt.
"The problem in granting a separate degree is where to draw the
line.   People taking a bare major in
some  science and  filling in  their
units with English and so forth are
going to want the degree ot B.Sc.
And how are we going to decide
whether mathematics and psychology are arts or science courses?
There will be a little confusion."
POST-GRAD WORKER
Bob Wilson, doing post-graduate
work in bacteriology, believes science students should have the same
distinction they are given in some
old country universities.
"But it might be hard on those
who already have their degrees,"
he admitted. "If a separate degree
is granted, it should be made retroactive, as it was In Toronto
when th edegree of M.B. (bachelor
of medicine) was changed to M.D.
"If the change can be made without too much inconvenience I am
definitely in favor of it."
BRYNELSEN
Bern Brynelsen, last year's president of the Alma Mater Society,
also expressed an opinion. "I think
science students should have a separate degree," he said. "It gives
them more prestige when they're
attempting to land jobs. They take
a technical course and they should
have a technical degree."
Salisbury Lodge Men
Hold Dance
The Salisbury Lodge boarders
will hold a dance at the Commodore
next Thursday evening, as their
first social event. It will be an informal affair.
Though only half the hall has
been taken there will be ample
room for the sixty couples for
which provision has been made. It
is not an open dunce and will be
confined to the boarders and their
friends.
Probably early in the next
month, Salisbury will hold another
party. At present this is merely
a resolution — complete arrangements for it will  be made later.
Team to Meet Pair from
Oxford and Cambridge
On November 27th, at either Hotel Georgia or Vancouver. The Imperial Oxford-
Cmbridge Debate team will be
met by Jay Gould and Dorwin
Baird of U. B. C, Forum officials announced today. The
subject has not yet been decided.
The Varsity team will bring to
this debate the benefit of wide experience in the forensic field, both
having taken part in major debates.
Gould, as a member of the western
team in the N.F.C.U.S. debate
series last year, toured Canada
with Maurice Western, of the University of Saskatchewan. The team
participated in seven debates, winning five.
Baird, with Peter Disney, last
spring represented U. B. C. against
the University of Alberta, en a subject dealing with Empire relationships.
At the same time, it was announced that U. B. C. will again
take part in the Western Universities League,
Two debates will take place simultaneously, on or about January 13,
one ln Saskatchewan, and the other
in Vancouver. Coming to Vancouver will be a team from the University of Alberta.
Provided that the Imperial debate proves a financial success, a
team may be sent to California to
debate tanford. This will also be
in the spring term.
A meeting of Le Cerele Francals
will be held tonight, October 20th,
at the home of Mrs. Andrew Sostad,
2S65 West Fifth. All French student* interested are invited to attend.

DER DEUTSCHE VEREIN
The first meeting of the German
club will be held on Thursday, Oct.
22, at 8 p.m., at the home of Dr.
Hallamore, 1930 Quilchena Crescent. Dr. Hallamore will speak on

TOMORROW
Determined that the Arts '39
Class Party be second to none
thie year, the 8ophomere Clase
executive have arranged a Pep
Meeting for Wednesday to boost
the sale of tickets.
Feature of the meeting will be
Bob Lyon's orchestra, of Commodore fame. To supplement
this band of smooth rhythm
makers, the Sophs have added
an extra fixture, probably the
resurrected "March of Slime."
Pattullo and Weir
Here Friday
President Klinck was host to two
distinguished visitors Friday morning when Premier T. D. Pattullo
and Hon. George M. Weir, minister
of education, visited this campus.
The main purpose for the Premier's visit was an inspection of
the Connaught Laboratories in the
Science Building. These labs, installed last year as an experimental unit, are known as the Western
Division of the Connaught Labs at
Toronto. Mr. Pattullo became familiar with the work of Dr. C. E.
Dolman during his visit. Dr. Dolman |s in charge of the labs here.
The visitors also made a short
tour of the cappus, seeing the arts
building, the cafeteria and other
places of interest.
Student Effort Gives
U. of Sask. A Stadium
NEW STRUCTURE OFFICIALLY
OPENED OCTOBER i
UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN, Saskatoon, Oct.
17,__Another milestone in fitting this university for better
sport facilities was passed on Saturday, October 3, when
with the pomp and ceremony due the great occasion, the
stadium was officially opened.
In  the game that followed, the
Saskatchewan team met the University of Alberta Golden Bears, who
have been friendly rivals of the
Huskies for many years. The University of Saskatchewan has true
pride in playltlg host to the Alberta
team on a field that is truly their
own, and one that is considered the
finest in Western Canada.
PER8EVERANCE OF STUDENTS
The University of Saskatchewan
had long needed and dreamt of
such a Stadium. Many times the
project had been raised, but it was
not until two years ago, in the face
of the Great Depression and the
drought-striken Saskatchewan, that
enough of the faculty and students
had the enthusiasm and perseverance to see the Stadium a reality.
Funds were raised by whole-hearted co-operation in subscription and
in bowling tournaments. The proceeds were sufficient to build three
units of the grandstand and an excellent playing field. Tenders were
called for but as the demands were
too high, the Administration decided  to attempt construction  them
OFFICE OF CHIEF CONSTABLE
J. Gould, Esq., President, Students' Council,
University of B. C,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:
Complaints have been received by this Department of the speed with which students of the University drive to and from the University, on 41st Avenue
and 12th Aventfe and particularly 10th Avenue West.
Parents who have younger children attending
schools on these routes, complain bitterly of this practice and the possibilities of fatal consequences therefrom.
I am of the opinion that if this complaint was
drawn to the attention of the students, through the
columns of your publication, the "Ubyssey," and the
harm done to their Alma Mater by this practice was
pointed out, there would be fewer complaints.
Faithfully yours,
W. W. FOSTER,
Chief Constable.
Players' Club Names Cast
For Xmas Performances
Students Still Keen to
Contend With Shakespeare
Reverberating with echoes of sweet feminine pleadings
and hoarse masculine ravings, peopled with frenzied one-
armed men and gentle Portias, the Auditorium was once
again scene of the tryouts for the annual Christmas Plays,
late Thursday.
Rivalry   was   keen   for  coveted
parts ln the Plays. ' The aspiring
amateurs, like the most seasoned
veterans, proved especially fallible
to  the  lure  of  Shakespeare,   the
Merchant of Venice attracting well
over a score of competitors.
Tryouts lasted from 2.30 o'clock
until almost six.
Few mishaps took place, with the
exception of forgotten lines and
slips of the tongue. One potential
Bassanio however did start talking
about "the finger that wasn't on
his ring," and a petite Portia, remembering stories of the "Three
Little Pigs," made mention of the
hair on her "chinny-chin-chin" instead of on the whole face.
The members of the Club will
miss the congenial and helpful presence of Mr. Larsen very much this
year. Due to pressure from outside
work, Mr. Larsen has been forced
to relinquish the position of honorary president.
Rehearsals will get under way
immediately, and casts will be kept
hard at work until the nights of
the plays, November 25, 26, 27 and
28. Committees for these plays will
be announced at a general meeting
of the Club on Wednesday.
A tentative cast for the Plays,
subject to further changes by the
individual directors, was posted as
follows:
Lucrezia Borgia's Little Party;
director; Mrs. R. Rolleston West.
Lucrezia, Hazel Merten; Fiametta,
Lorraine Johnston; Isabella, Mary
Fitz-James; Pamela Yell; Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Eddy; Rlcardo,
Jack Lock; Machiavelli, Milton Na-
rod; Cesare Borgia, Geoff. Mackie;
Tessa, Evelyn Smith, Agnes Shew-
an; Baldassare, Les Sugarman.

Locke; Sue, Kay
Smith; Bartlett, Jack Stark;'
gins, Eric Robertson.
The Merchant of Venice; director, Mr. Dilworth; assistant, Ludlow Beamish. Women: Mary McLeod, Betty Darnborough, Rheta
Lesser, Jean McLauren, Kay Patterson. Men: John Ker, Chas Mc-
Neely, Don Cameron, Bob Hayman,

'38 TO DISCUSS
PROM AND
GOWNS
All members of Arts '38 will congregate in Arts 100, next Friday
noon, to discuss plans for the Junior
Prom this year.
A tentative suggestion by the
executive is to hold the party in
the Spanish Grill, with Mart Ken-
ney's Western Gentlemen, and all
the trimmings. With the added expense involved, the governing body
deems it advisable to raise the class
from $1.00 to $1.26.
Another very controversial matter will also be under discussion at
the Friday Junior meeting, that of
Senior Gowns. The optimistic third-
year students intend to answer this
important question this semester,
rather than wait until next fall.
Reports from the various active
committees will conclude the meeting, and President Malcolm Brown
desires a full turn-out of '38 members this Friday noon.
Curtis,  Evelyn
' Hig-
selves. The work was carried on by
University students who proved
willing and capable workers. Extensive plans for fully completing
the stands, track, and field, will
make the Stadium fit to rank with
the University's finest buildings.
Undoubtedly, Dr. Murray, President of the University, and Joe
Griffiths, Physical Instructor, are
to receive the greatest amount of
praise for this work. It has been
Joe's dream for a great number o'
years to have the much-needed Stadium. In memory of the work he
did the Stadium is to receive his
name.

SUPPORT THE TOTEM
Two hundred more waivers are needed if the project
for a bigger and better Totem is to succeed. The six hundred
waivers that have already been signed are evidence that the
scheme has the support of the student body. Another
"Waiver Day" will be held this week, and It is to be hoped
that all students who wish Totems and have not yet signed
a waiver, will come to the rescue.
The most surprising feature of the Waiver Day last
Friday was the reluctance of Fraternity members to support
the project. Below the border, where fraternities really rate,
it is generally true that the Greeks are behind vry progressive
movement, and take an active interest in every phase of
campus life. Until the local groups awaken to the fact that
they have a duty to their Alma Mater as well as to themselves, they can never hope to achieve the prestige of their
American brothers.
The Waiver Day this week will give the fraternity men
an opportunity to prove that they have an interest in the
affairs of the University. The whole issue of whether or
not U. B. C. is to have one of the outstanding,college year
books in the country can be decided by the Greek Letter
Societies.   The eyes of the University are on you.
GOWNS AGAIN
Just as in every fall since the University was born our
dear sweet seniors have decided that they want gowns. And
because they want gowns they exclaim, "There shall be
gowns in our land, and the Seniors shall come forth clad
in gowns, and the council shall cause every Senior to wear a
gown, and shall smite those who do not."
Having said this, our dear seniors will send the recommendation to council, and council will say they cannot enforce it and the sweet seniors will sit back and mutter for
a while, and soon forget that gowns were ever mentioned.
This has happened almost every year, and will continue
to happen until some strong concerted action is taken by a
majority of the whole student body. The "Ubyssey" is far
from sure that the students want gowns ,and is equally far
from sure that they are desirable, but it is sure that there
is no possible chance of their being worn merely because of
a motion of a graduating class.
MASS EDUCATION
Total registration at the University of Washington has
reached a new high. The official figure now stands at 10,100.
Throughout the state this is hailed by the press as a
great achievement.
Perhaps from the point of view of providing an ever-
increasing percentage of the population with an opportunity
for higher education, it is.
But from the point of view of providing the state with
an institution capable of giving the individual attention necessary to develop real scholars, It is not.
Certainly the personal element which is so essential to
education is lost when professors have classes so large that
they have to lecture by means of public address systems.
Let us hope a like condition never exists at U.B.C.

THE 8TUDENT PRINCE
AS USUAL
Ye hoary halls of hooey
Have called us back again,
With refills in each notebook,
And ink in every pen.
Each one to win a scholarship
A solemn vow all took,
So hie us to the library
At once to get a book.
Now every one was shaky
Those gloomy days last May,
So let's get down to study
And next year get an "A".
But there's my old friend Jackson,
And there the Smithers girls
(It's Katy with the chassis
And Effle with the curls).
So on our way to Abie's,
Oh Bacchus! Bring us wine!
There'll be no books for us today
For Auld Lang Syne.
But when the robin pipes his song
And calls "Why this is Spring!"
With final papers close at hand,
Well wish like everything
That we had worked that first Fall
day
And not to Abie's hurried.
(If we'd even worked one day a
week
We would not be so worried.)
And so we soak our studies up,
In April and in May,
And graduation day for us
Is farther yet away.

716 Hastings Street West
Opposite the Tost Office
Down among the ghastly
blue flames and poisonous
vapours of the Science Building a revolution is brewing.
The Students of Science for
Science's Sake want to form
a faculty of their own. And
in view of the recent atrocities that have come to light,
allegedly perpetrated in the
sacred name of Science, it
seems unlikely that any true
student of Arts will object to
a schism.
The true Artsman Is charged
with being an aimless loafer, a lecture cutter, a coffee-in-the-Caf-at-
four-addict, and a dissolute beer
hound. All these accusations may
be true, but there Is one quality
In which the Artsman surpasses
students of other acuities, existent
or embryonic. That Is his lofty conception of womanhood. The tragic
episode of "Pauline" and "Peggy"
could never have occurred In the
Arts Building.
The last pitiful chapter of this
story was written last Thursday,
when "Peggy" was recaptured at
41st and Marine Drive and smuggled back to her prison to join her
simian friend, "Pauline." So secretly were the proceedings carried out
that news of the event did not reach
the Vinery until late next afternoon. The reaction of the assembled Artsmen was Immediate.
Tables were overturned ln the confusion of organizing a rescue party
to storm the Science Building.
Being one of these leaders of men,
however, who Inevitably appear ln
an emergency, I leaped to a table
and restored order.
"There must be no bloodshed,"
I cried. "This is a job for one man,
and I am he!"
A few minutes later, disguised in
a lab coat, spectacles, and with hair
mussed and tie in the proper degree of disarray. I sauntered into
the Science Building unsuspected.
Along smelly corridors, past sinister doorways where diabolical faces
leered around Buntzeu burners, up
wliulliiK stairways I made my way,
and reaching the fresh air of the
roof before asphyxia conquered me,
glided to the cage of the captive
simian maidens.
"Don't be frightened," I said, as
I crouched in the straw inside, "1
am your friend. I have come to
rescue you.   I am an Artsman."
The two female forms in the corner did not move, but looked dully
at the bare floor in front of them.
"Come! Be quick, and all may
yet be well," I said, but the only
response was a mocking, bitter
muttering, "All will be well . . .",
and then silence, unbroken, except
for the faint sound of sobbing.
Slowly the horror of the situation dawned upon me. Could I have
been too. . . Surely it was all an
ugly dream! But as I looked at
them I knew it was not.
For a long time I sat there, my
head burled in my arms, too numb
ln my mind to know where I was.
Then I heard Peggy's soft simian
voice at my shoulder, and felt her
slender hand stroking my head.
"Don't let life hurt you like thla,"
she said. "You're a dear, sweet,
gallant boy, but you have so much
to learn. Everything will come out
all right in the end, you'll see."
"We can never really love 'Mickey,' of course," said Pauline, on
the other side, "or even respect
him again; but he really isn't so
bad.   Just a spoiled boy, that's all."
Brave little Peggy, trying to be
cheerful, said, "He's really considered quite a catch, you know. After
all he's a monkey of private means,
not just another common zoo monkey. He can give us social prestige,
all the comforts of wealth. . ."
"Money!" I stormed, "always
money! . . ."
"You wouldn't turn your nose up
at It,' 'retorted Peggy warmly, "If
you'd spent the last ten days the
way I have, swinging from bush to
bush in the rain, climbing clotheslines to escape dogs, and those mis-
erable, foggy nights. . . ."
"Don't," said Pauline. "Don't
hurt him any more. Cant you see
what al! this means to him, to his
ideals? Artsmen are such dear,
sweet  hoys."
"I'm  awfully sorry, really." said
Saga of Skunk'
Skin That Stunk
Odour the Bunk
In days of yore, according to
the nursery rhyme, daddy went
a-hunting to get his baby a rab
bit skin. In modern times, in fact,
last week, a student went a-hunting. What he got was a cat—not
the "nice pussy" kind, but a variety with distinctive.markings—and
a distinctive odor.
Whether the student crept Daniel
Boon-like through dripping forests
and undergrowth, shining knife in
hand, at last to spring out upon his
odiferous victim, or whether he
merely followed his nose—much
more probable — will never be
known.
Whether it was Pauline the Simian masquerading as a "Pussy"
to escape the vile clutches of
"Micky" (Bluebeard) Davidson,
will never be known.
Nothing will ever be known except that in the Men's Room in
the Library one day last week,
bloodshot eyes glittering with the
light of conquest, stood a student,
gloating over his trophy of the
chase.
That this was not his first adventure as a hunter was shown by
the clean way the animal had been
skinned.
What will he do with the little
carcass? Perhaps a ruff fofr his
lady-love, a skunk cap for himself;
questioners soon found business in
the wide-open spaces. They left the
chasseur fondly holding his prise
before the electric dryer, anxiously
hoping that a good washing had
removed the delicate perfume.
"Home is the sailor, home from the
sea,
And the  hunter home from the
hill."

Dear Madam:
I should like to use your columns to draw attention to (1)
the Piano Reoital by Ira 8warts
on Wednesday, November 4, at
3.30 p.m. in the Auditorium; (2)
the concert of the Vanoouver
Symphony String Quartet on November 25; (3) the Music Lee-
ures, by Allard de Ridder, to be
given after Christmas.
Individual members of the Musical Society are meeting the necessary guarantees, amounting to
over two hundred and fifty dollars. A small admission fee will
be made for each of the two eon-
certs, but the lectures will be
open to all without charge.
I hope that students will give
more than adequate support to
these functions. If the recitals
are a suocess the Mualoal Society
will undoubtedly be encouraged
to extend its plana In future
years.

Peggy. "Please, don't worry about
us any more. Learn to accept life
as we have. We're going to devote
ourselves to Science from now on,
to serve humanity. In the end that's
all that matters, you see. The rest
is simply a lot of childish Illusions.
And promise you won't get cynical?"
I looked into her face for comfort, and I shall never forget the
beautiful expression I saw there.
She was gazing through the bars of
her cage at the sunset with a wistful smile, that revealed her new
spiritual serenity, a calm acceptance of life's sorrows, and the wisdom of all the ages.
"Oh, Peggy." I sobbed. "You're
so noble, so wise . . . you make me
feel like a little boy again. . . ."
Blind with tears I stumbled out

Hours later'I found myself seated
In The Tavern, gazing blankly at
six more glasses of beer, and a
hazy apparition in a white jacket
who hovered over them, saying
something about "eleven thirty." I
scratched my ankle for the twentieth time, and he said something
else.
"Pleas?'' he said. "No, certainly
not . . .", and I quickly left.
How could I telt him? How could
I ever tell anybody?

No Mickey Mouse, But a Remarable
French Cartoon Featured

"La Joel de Vivre,'" a French
animated oartoon, hat been heralded as the meat original of Its
typo that has yet appeared. The
film, whloh features a delicate
graee of tho drawing, ia remarkable for Its uae of dealgn In the
background as emphasis to the

To university students, this picture will be of special interest. The
animated cartoon Is fast becoming
an excedlngly popular art mode,
and this continental example points
the way to future improvements in
the work of the animator.

New, because of Its age, "The
Sex Life of the Polyp," the second
Aim on Thursday's program, was
one of the first talking films to be
recorded. Synchronized musical
acompanimets to silent films, "canned" vaudeville acts had preceded
it and Al Jolson had spoken a few
words in the "Jazz Singer." Nevertheless, it was still a seven day's
wonder that audiences could see
and hear Robert Benchley.
Benchley haa since become popular for his film work, but this
first effort of 1928 will probably
never be beaten for sheer orgln-
ality. The first days of the talkie
were troublesome ones, and reviews of many of tho older films
bring back memories of that infant art.

The third picture is "The Marriage Ceremony or the Amazula,"
recorded in South Africa in 1935.
This is one of the many excellent
films about South Africa which are
being produced under the auspices
of the government there. The wedding costumes of the Amazula are
here depicted, along with the quaint
courting methods, the delivery of
the price of the bride to her people,
and the actual marriage ceremony.
No admission will be charged for
the pictures, but the doors will be

From the Rowing Club
showers comes this story of
young love and early proposals. Wilson MacDuffy gets
the orchid for popping the'
question for the first time at
the tender age of fourteen in
a rowboat. And he was not
rejected easily if we are to
judge by the fact that he is
president of the Varsity Rowing Club today.
For my own part, my childhood was very sheltered, and
I did not offer to terminate
my bachelor days and face
the struggles of life with the

past my fifteenth birthday.

C.O.T.C. Plays
And Promotes
With 27 recruits already enrolled,
the U.B.C. Contingent of the Canadian Officers' Training Corps appears to be headed for record year.
This is the largest addition to
strength the Contingent has yet
had on the campus this early in the
season.
Promotions announced Saturday,
Include that of O. R. L. Kenwrlck
to be Cadet Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant; Cadet Sergeant
R. M. Campbell to be Cadet Company Quartermaster Sergeant, and
Cadet A. P. Morley to be Cadet
Staff Sergeant.
Other appointments are Cadet
Corporals A. P. Fawley and M. L.
Brown to be Cadet Sergeants, and
Cadets O. Zotov, A. Daunt, H. T.
Daunt, C. E. Hand, J. R. Roberts,
A. H. Byers, M. J, Lambert, R. S.
Clark and F. P. Orlfin to be Cadet
Corporals.
They will be invested with their
new ranks at the regular parade at
Seaforth Armouries tonight, the
first time the Contingent has turned
out in full uniform this year.
Last Sunday nearly 40 members
of the unit packed themselves Into
the D.C.O.R. truck and departed
for Blair Range for the first rifle
practice of the season. Fog, the
antique rifles ln use and the concerted Lewis Qun and Vtckers machine gun practice of the Westminster Regiment taking place at their
right ears reduced the scores to a
level far below the usual for the
Contingent, but unrelenting Quartermaster Sergeant Instructor Smith
declared that they must be prepared to complete their qualification shoot next Sunday, nevertheless.
The returning truck full of wild
looking youths, bristling with business-like rifles, aroused consider-
attention among the unprepared Inhabitants of Vancouver as it swept
through the main streets Sunday
afternoon, intoning "Mr. Noah,"
"Mademoiselle from Arment^ers"
and other choice ballads. As It
passed the Salvation Army headquarters it shouted a unanimous
invitation to some thirty "Lassies"
on the sidewalk to "Come for a
ride, babies?"
The climax of the afternoon, however, occurred at Tenth Avenue and
Alma, as the truck hesitated to discharge three or four passengers.
A little, apparently nervous, old
lady fluttered up to a rifle-toting
youth.   •
"And who are those men?" she
asked tremulously.
"Just the C.O.T.C."
"And what are they doing?"
"Just been a-shooting on the
North Shore."
"Oh! I'm so glad! I was afraid
there was trouble ln Vancouver,
and It was somebody over here
they had been shooting."

Last Thursday, the Science Men's
Undergraduate Society held their
eleventh Annual Banquet. About
150 of the "Red Shirts" turned up,
and they sure had a good time both
there and after.
The speaker for the evening was
Dean Buchanan, and as Major Find-
lay said, "I have never seen him
In better form." Hanko and Clar,
the two dancers, put on a beautiful
and thrilling exhibition, and the
spectators responded ln a more
than hearty manner. The acrobatic
dance brought forth "A new idea
for track workout," from Bud Burden. The magician went as far as
to conjure a bottle of scotch from
the pocket of one of the audience.
All in all, a good time. "Best
Banquet I was ever at," quote from
Mr. Gages' Knock Knocks.

WAIVER STUBS

Campus spirit responded briskly
to the occasion when Totem waivers flooded stratgetic points Friday. Opening the drive to secure
800'waivers and thereby make possible the compilation of a burlier
Totem, the staff expressed gratification at the comfortable student
response elicited.
Due to great hurry In distribution of the Waivers, some irregularities In proeedure arose from
faulty explanation. Tha faet that

the waivers was not undsrstood,
with the result that detached waivers were turned in. Will ths following, who wars given ths stubs

hardy cup semis?
There comes to these ears the
rumor that the Canadian Rugby
club officials are going to drop this
year's Hardy cup series because
they can't get a satisfactory guarantee arrrangement.
It is regrettable that the matter
of a guarantee should hold up this
important series. For if there Is
one thing that Is a "natural" as
far as student Interest is concerned,
It is Intercollegiate competition
wtth one of our sister western Canadian universities.
Surely the Men's Athletic Association, or the Students' Council or
even the students themselves can
do something to make this event
possible.

Fctr of Common Enemy
An Internal Safeguard
The last four years have witnessed such momentous changes in
Europe—governments have fallen,
empires have been conquered, summer resorts have become concentration camps—that one might Imagine that Europeans have come to
look a bit different from the inhabitants of this continent. Yet, Dr.
Angus, discussing the Impressions
of his European trip last summer,
assured a meeting of the International Relations Club, on October
28, that such Is far from being the
case. Germany looks as it has always done; there are people in the
streets, tea-dances at the hotels,
good roads and the usual number of
tourists; one meets with polite attention everywhere, and while there
is plenty of reason to believe the
country to be swarming with soldiers, very few are to be seen.
France, too, continues unchanged;
and the political tone in England Is
decidedly "healthy."
CALM VIEW OF SCARES
It is true that the nations as a
whole seem to be ranging themselves under the Communist or Fascist banners respectively; but in
spite of the repeated "war scares"
of the past 18 months, Dr. Angus
takes a very calm view of the possibility of active hostilities.
There are few governments In
Europe who are not facing serious Intsrnal unrest. Only ths fear
of a common enemy can keep the
people from olvll war. Consequently, while not even Hitler
wants a first-elass conflict, an occasional war-sears eonsolldatss
his position. It unltss ths nation, and psrsusdsa It thst In Osr
Fuhrer lies Its only chance of
salvation. But Just ss a permanent psaoc would ruin the Nasi
regime, so would a war of sny
dimensions.
There is, of course, as Dr. Angus
points out, plenty of danger even
ln this. If a too outrageous bluff
is called, If an internal situation
becomes so intolerable that something more than flamboyant posing
is needed to take people's minds
off It: then—the deluge! But meanwhile, we can perhaps live on our
volcano for a little while longer. At
least It is consoling to think so.

Strange Interlude
■y BILL KNOX
The English I. lecture wore on.
The voice of Dr. Blakey came in a
steady, unruffled flow. Suddenly a
titter was heard from the back of
the room. With a start the prof,
looked up, her color rising, to find
herself the object of a close scrut-
ing. The tittering Increased, and
so, in proportion, did her color.
Finally, unable to repress the anguish in her soul, the suspicion in
her   mind,   Dr.   Blakey   gurgled:
"Dear Dave:—
I see by the pspers that Varsity

Dead silence broke by an occasional muffled giggle. Really it was

With bated breath, she ran fren-

exhausted, she gasped: "Well,

"Please, Madam, there's nothing

St. Andrew's Win
By 6-1 Score
Last Saturday's McBrlde Park
wrangle between the Varsity round-
bailers and St. Andrew's ended ln a
6-1 win for the saintly ones. Play
was forced hard all the way, and
Varsity had to scramble hard to
keep on the ball.
The striped-shlrted men are very
fast and tricky with the ball, and
well deserved their name of the
strongest team in the league. Varsity, however, is a much improved
group, and it is certainly to their
credit that they are the first team
this year to bang a counter Into
the Saints' net.
MAHOOD-FOSTER  ATTACK
FAILS
The Mahood-Focter attack failed
to get under way in this game,
although boys boys tried hard.
As a matter of fsct It was too
much Individual play, and a lack
of combination that put the Thun-
derbirda In the doghouae. Our
boys seemed to have no special
plays to work on, while the very
definite ones of 8t. Andrew's
were very effective.
Coach Charlie Hltchln says that
there Is no more time for experimenting left, and now the boys will
start working on passing and combined plays. This is very encouraging news, and will probably mean
the turning point ln the luck of the
Blue and Oold. Now that they've
tangled with the three top teams,
time can be taken to perfect these
co-operation ideas and get Into
shape for a better showing against
them. Undoubtedly, Varsity has
a fine set of players, and development will turn them into a good
team.
This plan means a bit harder
work on the part of the boys themselves. There are practices on
uesday (with running shoes instead
of boots), and Friday, at noon, as
well as the Gymnasium practice for
conditioning.

Well, one thing can be aald for
Varsity's football team—they are at
least consistent. The boys have yet
to glean a victory on the gridiron,
but they're still trying hard. Stout
hearts and strong hopes weren't
sufficient, though, to break through
the strong Wolves' defense on Saturday when the V.A.C. boya roared
Into Victory Station whistling in at
15-5.
POOR TACKLING, PUMULIS
COSTLY
Some 1500 watched the Red
Shirts block and smosh the Colleg
lans to submission as they took advantage of the poor tackling and
continuous fumbling which often
characterized Varsity's game.
The collegians did show flashes
of fine style, however, and a
threatening student uprising at
the close of the first half aaved
the encounter from being a shutout. v
John Pearson, whom Doe Burke
had so faithfully groomed for the
punt poaition waa not used
enough, but evidenced a real
kicking ability when he was
•hunted into the field to boot the
egg ball. Ap Roberta, Bob Twiss,
and Williams also performed effectively but the counter-attack
of long yardage gains and perfect punting aet up by the Vacs
were like a kick in the cleats to
the atudes.
LOUI8 CHODAT SCORE8
V.A.C.'s Chodat turned the first
leaf in the scoring book when he
snagged a high one and chased
down the turf to deposit the ball
between Varsity's goal posts. In
the second part of the fray Pearson
trotted in, giving an action picture
of some real snappy booting, while
Evan Ap Roberts, ex-Magee high-
schooler and potential Rockne, led
the Varsity parade on a goodly
number of ground-gaining end runs.
The big break came during this
semester when Monsieur Gulget,
Varsity's Chevalier freshman from
Alberta, leaped into the ozone, and
pulled down an Ap Roberts' forward pass. He evaded a Vac charger and dashed down the field for
the one and only Varsity touchdown. The converter foozled, and
Vacs went Into the second half with
a one-point lead.
HONORABLE MENTION
Fumbles, poor interference, and
a poor snap at a crucial point In the
game cinched the score for Vacs,
which ended at 15-5. The Varsity
boys played a really gallant game
of football, never seeming to lose
heart, , and ever-challenging the
slightly superior tactics of the Vacs.
Ap Roberts, Twiss, Guiget, Williams and Pearson are especially
worthy on honorable mention for
their consistently effective playing
U. B. C. football and basketball stocks went up a couple of
points when Ralph "Henny"
Henderson was seen on the
campus yesterday. "Henny" has
been mining seven days a week
up in Atlin for the last seven or
eight months, and is definitely
"tired of it all." He was one of
the "three musketeers" of two
years ago, and although he says
he won't play till after Xmas.
The old sport itch may bite him
before long.

Howie McPhee Again Seen In
Old Spot On Three Line
■y PRANK TURNER
Travelling over to North Shore All-Black*' home playground, Confederation Park, Varsity's stalwart rugger fifteen
defeated the Miller Cup champs of two year's ago, by a 12-8
score on Saturday.
According to all traditions, progenia predictions, etc., ths Blue
and Oold beys wsrns't supposed
to win. But they not only handed
ths Inlet thslr sseond loss in all
the years they've bssn entertain*

FLEET THREES
Once more the fleet threes of the
U.B.C. team sped through the disillusioned All-Blacks to pile up most
of the Student (total. Deadlocked
In a 5-6 tie at the end of the first
half, the "coloured" entry staged a
belated rally, but were again set
back by the fighting Collegians, and
actually outscored by them.
From the first toot of the overblown whistle, the "boys of the institute" took command. In the first
ten minutes, successive waves of
dangerous three runs had the North
Van. lads penned in their own two-
bit, and potential scores were averted only by some smart tacklings.
BLACKS GET "BREAK"
One of those things commonly
called "breaka" waa responsible
for the flret try of the game.   The
break, a luck fly kick, brough the
ball back deep Into Varaity'a territory. Cricketer Smythe followed
up   the   advantage,   by   running
baek a penalty kick, to acore near
the  poata, with   Duncan  kicking
the extra two pointa.
After   this   temporary   setback,
Varsity again illustrated the power
in its backfield division.   Time after
time the speedy threes swept down
the field, finally achieving success
when Harmer scored from a pass
from   Carey,   after   a   scrum   was
called    from   a   pileup   about   ten
yards out.
BIRD, LUMSDEN MAKE IT 12-5
When the ruggers were through
"lemon-mealing",   and   play   resumed, Johnny Bird immediately
put Varaity in the lead, with a
field goal 30 yards out, making
the count 9-6. Tricky Harry Lumsden waa the leading light of the
final U.B.C. try.   Knifing through
a lineout, Harry swervlngly sped
for the uprights, passing to Strat
Leggat, who acored standing up.
The convert failed
Trailing  125  at  this  point,  the
All-Blacks turned on the heat, but
after Duncan had booted a penalty,
the Collegiate defense held the powerful Black fifteen in check for the
remainder of the game.
McPHEE 8TAR8
To pick out individual atara
would be a tough job, aa all the
Student playera turned In finiahed
performancea. However, the return of aprinter Howie McPhee
ratea honorable mention. Howle'a
flying feet were a big aid to the
fleety three line. Another member
of the Blue and Gold team, Freeh-
man Lumaden waa alao a standout in the Saturday tilt.
Hockey Girls Train
Again the Women's Grass Hockey
Club are raising havoc with themselves and the fields as they start
shaping up for the coming season.
Grass hockey is without doubt an
extremely joyous pastime—its joys
are sometimes limited, however, as
sticks meet ankles and balls meet
noses.
The girls approached Mr. Palmer
of John Oliver High, to coach the
team, but he was apparently to busy
for the task. Meanwhile the club
executive, aided by last season's
players, are trying to teach some
of the finer points of the game to
the enthusiastic newcomers.
Eight of last year's hockeyists
have returned to form the nucleus
of the Varsity team.
The forward line has unfortunately lost its centre and left wing,
bust still has Sheila Wilson, who
tears down the right wing in record time, and Ellen Boving at right
inside.
Gladys Laycock and Kay Curtis
will probably make the senior team
while the good turnout of freshettes will assure a strong Varsity
eleven.

Varsity 2nd* Defeat
Harlequins 13-3
After last week's whitewash, the
2nd division ruggers came back
to hand a 13-3 defeat to the South
Van. Harlequins at Brockton Point
on Saturday.
South Van. had a alight edge In
the begin ing of the game, scoring
the flret try, but Varsity soon got
under way with a series of snappy three-quarter runs carried the
pigskin over the line twice to
make the soore 8-3 by the end of
the first half. In the aeoend half
the Gold and Blue lada eontlnued
to have It their own way, emaeh-
ing through for another try.
The threes, who had shown up so
poorly last Saturday, were functioning like clockwork, and the scrum
was smearing the opposing forwards ln great style.
College was outstanding for Varsity, making two out of three tries,
Whittle scoring the remaining tally.
