Sir Arthur Steel-Maitland
Miss  Armstrong  Outlines
Difficulties To Hlstoricals
A gloomy picture of the British
Empire's future—based on the apparent failure of its statesmen to
solve the Sphinx-like riddle of modern migration problems within the
Commonwealth—was painted by Miss
Gwendolyn Armstrong when she presented her paper on the subject "Migration Problems of the British Empire," before a meeting of the Historical Society held on Monday evening, Nov. 20, at the home of Miss
Helen Boutilier.
Sketching the gradual decrease of
migration within the Empire during
modern times, the speaker showed
that "the stream of British emigrants
to the Dominions has latterly been
a mere trickle compared with the
outward flood of the Victorian age."
Centralization of Whites
Miss Armstrong pointed out that
over 60 percent of the white population in the Empire is situated in the
British Isles and "with the industrial revolution, and the growth of
great cities on tiny sites, began the
degeneracy, a lowering of British
racial standards, that is still in progress."
Accordingly, there is a two-fold
assumption underlying the policy of
migration: Firstly, "it is assumed
that it is to the Interests of this
country (England) to promote emigration to the Dominions," Secondly, "that it is to the interests of the
Dominions to increase their population by receiving immigrants from
Great  Britain."

After tho football game last Saturday, quite a number of Varsity people took in the Tea Dansant at "The
Bay," and according to all reports,
they had a splendid time.
Another Dansant is slated for this
Saturday, and in order to make it
possible for football fans to attend,
the time has been set for 4 to 6
The Dansants are held in the spacious Georgian Restaurant, on the
Sixth Floor, and the dance floor is
Varsity students are specially invited  to attend.
Mr. John Ridington wishes to
announce that he is giving a
gallery talk on the Patley Jones
Arts Collection in the Faculty
Room of the Library this afternoon at 3 o'clock.
Rt. Hon. Sir Arthur Steel-Maitland,
Bart., M.P., who was Minister of
Labor in the British Government from
1924 to 1929, will address a meeting
oi' students at 4 o'clock this afternoon
in Arts 100. He is speaking at the
university under the auspices of the
departments of economics and history.
Sir Arthur has just completed a
survey of the N.R.A. In operation in
the United States, which he carried
out at the invitation of the Rockefeller Foundation, and is now ln the
course of a tour of Canada sponsored
by the National Council of Education.
He has shown a very lively interest
in thq promotion of the study of the
science of economics, and in educational matters while in addition he
has been an active supporter of the
League of Nations.
Initiated Anti-Slave Action
As the official representative of the
Government of New Zealand at the
League Assembly in 1922 he was successful, in spite of much opposition, in
initiating a movement for international action against slavery. As an
educationalist and economist he has
for the past seventeen years been
chairman of the Court of Governors of
the London School of Economics, of
which he himself was one of the first
students, while it was as a result of
his efforts that the degree of Bachelor of Commerce was instituted by the
University of London in 1919.
Distinguished Career
Born in India in 1876 he became a
student first at Rugby, and then at
Oxford. For his scholarship at the
latter university he attained a Double
First and the Eldon Scholarship and
in 1900 was made a Fellow of
All Souls College, while in student
activities he successfully held the
positions of secretary, treasurer, and

Da Vinci
By Cooke
The opening air debate of
this season, one of a series of
lour, will be broadcast tonight
over CRCV at 6:45 this evening.
Milt Owen and Dick Mac-
Dougall will represent the
U.B.C. against a team from the
U. of Alberta, debating at Edmonton on the resolution that
Canada should institute a policy
jf recovery similar to the N.R.A.
in the United States. This debate will be in competition for
the McGowan Cup for debating,
presented by Prof. G. McGowan of the U. of Alberta faculty.
"The work of Leonardo da Vinci is a
challenge to the present age," declared
Professor A. C. Cooke, at a meeting of
the Art Club held on Wednesday
evening. "It is a marvel that any
man could combine in one span of
life the mighty achievements accomplished by the mediaeval Florentine
Da Vinci is not only one of the
world's greatest painters and sculptors, the creator of the 'Mona Lisa,'
"The Last Supper,' 'David,' and many
other masterpieces, but he is also a
pioneer scientist, anatomist, inventor
and draughtsman. In his spare time
he dabbled in politics, poetry and
Uterature. In this superb man, the
full flowering of mediaeval genius
came to the fore.
Further Anatomical Studies
After the age of fifty da Vinci
abandoned his work as an artist, and
turned to the scientific studies that
were his chief love. He extended further the knowledge of anatomy required for a sculptor, and studied it
from a scientific viewpoint. Some of
his antomlcal drawings still remain
as marvels of their kind.
The great Florentine was a close
student of the science of war. He
made many studies on the art of tactics, and actually Invented the progenitor of the modern tank. He also
investigated the use of the Submarine.
Mass of Drawings
Upon his death da Vinci left a vast
mass of drawings and scientific data
to posterity. His drawings are a
model of the draughtsman's art. His
scientific findings were recorded in a
series of short-hand notes which were
not translated until recent years. They
were written in code in order to protect the author from the wrath of the
medieval Catholic Church who looked
askance at any original thought. Da
Vinci wrote his notes back-hand from
right to left, and they can only be
deciphered after being held up to a
mirror. Even then the Italian employed was devised by da Vinci himself. Like a wise man he was taking
no chances on experiencing the rack.
One of the remarkable things about
the work of da Vinci was that it was
largely pioneer research. His only
source of knowledge was in nature
itself and in his own wonderfully
fertile brain.

Next Week
Early days in New France, lumbermen— coureurs-de-bois—Indians —
such will be the opening scene of
the "Reve de la Basse-Bretagne",
which forms the chief part of the
"Chansons d'Autrefols" being presented by the French Literary and
Dramatic Society in the Auditorium
on Nov. 29 and 30.
The scene shifts from Canada to
mediaeval days in France, and we
see a Chanteur or travelling ballad-
mongre, who is very weary after a
long day on the road and lies down
on a grassy bank to sleep. He dreams
and his dream comes to life. Druids,
fairies, characters of history and
legend such as Abelard and Helolse,
Taliesin, and Saint Gildas all appear.
Then the "Spirit of Song" (Biff McLeod) dances in, followed by a train
of tiny Corrlgans, and the Chanteur
(Callum Thompson) awakes.
He falls asleep again and dreams
once more. At the conclusion of this
scene Jacques Cartler appears to his
countrymen, who are enjoying themselves after market-day, and beckons them to the new country he has
discovered far to the West.
The next scene shows the migration of the Breton peasants to Canada, and the cheery way in which
they adapt themselves to new and
rigorous conditions,
There will be an introductory program of dramatized songs, among
which will be one or two especially
popular numbers from last year's
program, notably "Marianne S'en Va-
t-au Moulin" with Xay Baker in the
principal role.
Those students who have not studied French need have no fear of
being unable to understand the
songs, for each scene will be explained in English by the Orateur,
Andre Hisette, before it is presented.
Tickets for the two evening performances may be obtained from any
member of the three French Clubs,
or it Kelly's. Tickets for the matinee may be bought at the door.

Crook Play, Fantasy, Miracle Production and
a Pantomimic Comedy Ably Given
Tragedy, comedy, fantasy and intense drama formed the
annual Christmas programme of the Players' Club, which was
presented for the first time in the auditorium on Thursday night.
The programme consisted of four one-act plays, which were
greeted enthusiastically by the student audience.
The first play was "Two Crooks and a Lady," a burglary
story directed by Miss Marjorie Ellis, and capably acted by a
cast consisting ol Estelle Matheson, who portrayed a brave old

Examines Roman
Financial Sores
"The Ancient Monetary System" is
the subject chosen by Professor L.
F. Robertson, Head of the Classics
department, for his lecture before
the Vancouver Institute on Saturday, Nov. 27, at 8:15 in Arts 100.
It is Professor Robertson's jim to
show that ancient civilizations had
the same monetary troubles as trouble the civilized world today.
About two thousand years ago men
were worrying themselves about inflation of currency, the depreciation
of the bullion value of precious metals in the coinage, raised prices and
possibly cut wages.
His lecture will present one of the
most widely discussed of modern
problems in an ancient setting, the
problem of "sound money" vs. inflation.
This lecture will of course, be open
to the public. Anyone intending to
go should notice that because of the
Christmas plays this lecture will be
held in Arts 100 instead of the auditorium.

The board has not definitely decided whether or not Dr. G. M. Weir,
professor at the University and new

length of time.
The proposal to grant Dr. Weir the

Fill Pub. Void
At ten o'clock yesterday morning,
a -lone janitor was found in the Pub,
finishing up an editorial. When
questioned he admitted that he had
not been at the Pub party the night
before. The editor, crawling out from
under a pile of newspapers on a
table, admitted that he had. Drearily
rubbing his eyes, he shambled over
to the telephone, but was halted in
his progress, as he stumbled over a
prone form on the floor. Turning
him over, he found it to be the advertising manager, who arose and
made somewhat erratic progress towards a typewriter. Reaching it,
he found pillowed thereon the head
of the assistant sports editor, who
was enthusiastically clinging to a
gallon bottle of punch, left over from
the night before.
In an interview by a reporter who
had  been sent home early, the following   details   were  extracted.
"I Feel Doughnutty"
The Nanton Avenue home of Darrel Gomery was the scene of the festivities. Former lights of the Pub
mingled with the present staff, and
danced to the wily strains of a piano.
Pleasant intermission were provided
by a game of charades, cunningly
contrived and carried out, and followed by a Skit, presented by two
former Muck editors, Tom How and
Guy Palmer, who showed the advantages of their former training, in
perpetrating many puns.
Ninety-six hot dogs and doughnuts
disapeared rapidly, followed by the
hungry groans of disappointed Pub-
sters, who unfortunately were not
able to hold more than one in each

and her dastardly accomplice, Miller

villainously by E. J. Fox. The suspense was splendidly kept up and
many alarmed gasps were heard in
the audience as a truly fearsome shot

"Punch and Qo," by the late John
Galsworthy, was the second play, a
combination of fantasy and stern realist, brought about by the staging of a
play within a play. The technical
difficulties which had to be surmounted in the presentation of this play
were many, and many ingenious lighting effects were used. This play was
directed by Dr. Harry Warren, with
assistance from Miss Marjorie Ellis
in the fantasy. The cast was headed
by Leslie AUen. as Frust, a flashy
theatrical producer whose main interest in life is giving the public what
it wants; Jack Conway, as the "idealistic director of the fantasy; Audrey
Phillips, as Vanessa Hellgrove, the actress whose great chance of a career
hangs in the balance, and David Fulton, as the dry-as-dust professor in
the play within the play.
This was followed by a tragedy, "El
Cristo," the prize play by Margaret
Larkin. It is based on the production of a miracle play by a Mexican
society of penitents, and the disillusionment of Jose, a religious youth
who abandons the great honour of
being "El Crristo" when he finds his
influence is to be used to help his relations in a material way, and thereby
loses his sweetheart, Rosalia. Jose
was played by Nick Palitti, and Rosalia by Betty Moscovitch, while Jose's
uncle and mother, respectively, were
portrayed by Herb Barclay and Margaret Ecker. The set was very striking
and added tremendously to the effectiveness of the play.
The last play was a pantomimic
comedy of fifteenth century France,
"The Pie and the Tart," from Which
we found that even in medieval times
there were unemployed in search of
a meal. The two knaves, Leanface
and Windfed, were played amusingly
by Russell Twining and George Johnson, and the baker and his wife were
portrayed by Norman McDiarmid and
Margaret Palmer. This play was directed by Dr. Walker, and was received
with great enthusiasm by the audience.

Bobby Paul, who will play English
Rugby for the first time In two years
on Saturday. Bobby will regain his
"sea legs" by playing for the second
division team.
The interclass Basketball schedule,
as drawn up, is slated to get off to
a flying start on the opening of the
Spring Term. Athletic Reps are advised to get their teams lined up at an
early date.
Two Leagues
The whole object of interclass athletics is to enable men not playing on
Varsity teams to participate in some
form of athletic competition. There
is no reason why every class cannot
field a good squad when so few men
arc required for a basketball team.
The following rules and schedule
will be strictly adhered to during the
season. There will be two leagues.
The Science League, Including the
Faculty of Agriculture, will play all
games on Tuesday noon. The Art
League .including Education, will
play on Thursday noons. Play-offs
will be late in March. Points for first,
second and third place* will count
towards the Governor's Cup.
Athletic Reps may obtain further
Information regarding interclass athletics from R. W. Gaul, Vice-President of Mens' Athletics.

After holding the formidable St.
Andrews of the Pacific Coast loop to
a 1-1 draw in an exhibition game last

will resume their league-warfare tomorrow at Cambie Grounds against
Maccabees. The match Is timed for

Out for Bacon
Maccabees, who are point ahead of
Varsity In the league standings, eked
out a 1-0 win over the latter last time
the two teams met. Their win, however, was so unconvincing that the
Collegians are favoured to bring back
the proverbial bacon tomorrow. At
all events, the game will be interesting as both squads are noted for their
exceptional fighting spirit.
Manager Creamer of the Students
reports that all his charges except
Dave Todd have recovered from Tuesday's titanic struggle and that they
will surely be in grand shape for tomorrow.
Same Team
The team will be the same as that
which whitewashed Chinese Students
two weeks ago, namely:
Stan Greenwood, goal; Millar McGill
and Jock Waugh, backs; Russ Stewart,
Bill Wolfe, and Ernie Costain, halfbacks; Hughie Smith, Paul Kozoolin

Louie, reserve. If Dave Todd is unfit to play Ernie Costain will be moved
into his place and Tong Louie will
complete the half-line.

"Scrugby" 1
That's Stu's Name For It
Soccer clashed with English Rugby
last Tuesday In the new sporting in-
ovation that is sweeping the country;
"Scrugby," as termed by our man of
letters, Stu Keate.
Rugby-First Half
Rugby being the mode during the
first half, both teams took the field
with fifteen men. The soccer men
completely dominated the first few
minutes of play, their mighty kicks
keeping the ball at their opponent's
end of the field. The rugbyites
seemed unable to get going, allowing Jerry Sutherland, of the soccer
team, to score first for his club,
going over for a try after a scrum
near the goal line. The rugby boys
soon prov.d that they were in their
element, however, when their three-
quarter line began functioning. Scoring twice, on tries registered by
Dave Pugh and Chris Dalton respectively, they finished the first period
one up on the soccer players, being
kept from further scoring by the
superior kicking of those stalwarts.
Soccer—Second Half
The second half of the campus
nightmare was played under soccer
rules, each side fielding eleven men.
The rugby men apparently decided
that in some cases brawn can be
successfully substituted for strategy,
for they concentrated upon giving
the ball a mgihty boot whenever It
came within their.reach. This method met with some success ,for the
soccer men were unable to run up
their expected string of goals against
the rugby team. They finally leveled the score with a drive from Jack
Martin which beat the rugbyites'
goal keeper. This ended the scoring,
for although their goal had many
narrow escapes, the rugby men
somehow managed to defend it successfully for the remainder of the
It  is  reported  that several  rugby
and soccer fans watching the contest
were overcome by shock, receiving
attention from the spectators, but
there is no truth whatsoever to the
rumor that a prominent football
coach of this university was taken to
Essondale some hours after witnessing the contest.
A New Word?
Reports that the faculty of English
are endeavoring to have the term
"scrubby" included in the next issue
ot the Encyclopaedia Britannica are
also unconfirmed.
Two For One
The Ubyssey suggests that the noble pioneering enterprise of the Soccer and English Rugby officials have
begun be given the respect due to
it. Consider the advantages ot
"scrugby!" Both soccer and rugby
enthusiasts can be satisfied at the
same game; two matches for the
price of one, in other words. Think
of the possibilities!
Why not Swimming and Tennis
Polo and Bridge? Or weight-lifting
and ping-pong?

The Blue and Gold second division
team will meet the league leading Ex-
Britannia squad at Douglas Park on
Saturday. The game is slated for
2 p.m.
Varsity has not as yet, according to
Coach McConnachie, performed as
well as they can. The material available for the team is the best that a
second fifteen has ever had but the
team has failed to click. As Saturday's game Is the start of the second
half of the league schedule the students hope to do better and start this
half with a win.
New Men Playing
With the abundance of material
turning out the team line-up has
been altered considerably. Bill Vrooman, Canadian Rugby player, is to
fill the fullback berth. Bobby Gaul
and MUt Owen, former McKechnie
Cup stars, will play their first game
this year for the second team. Paul
Clement and Ted Madeley, who have
been playing for the first team, are
going to be in the second scrum.
The team is expected to be on the
field at 1:45. Spares are requested to
turn out as the men there at two
o'clock will play. The team line-up
is as follows: Vrooman, Arbuckle,
Ellis, Wilson. Sanderson, Gaul, Owen,
Macdonald, Johnston, Clement, Ark-
wright, Douglas, Madley, Armstrong,
Wood. Spare: Roberts, Stead, Rennie,
Heron, Hurley.
The Adanacs made another bid for
supremacy on Wednesday night when
they beat the Varsity quintette with
a score of 28-21. This game puts the
two teams ln a tie at the head ot the
leagu. and since they do not play
together again before Christmas the
chances are that they will he starting the second half of the schedule
oa an even basis.
Even Half
Nicholson made the first tally for
the U.B.C. team with a smooth long
shot. Then Mayers exchanged a few
fast passes with Matthison wh. tallied to even up the score. Bardsley
was playing good ball, and managed
to put the students in the lead with
a couple of foul shots and a deadly
long shot. Adanacs kept tha score
even and the half ended with both
teams having 10 points each.
Tough Luck
Osborne was the outstanding player
ln the second half and except for
one basket scored by Wiiloughby, he
was the only one of the students
that made points. The boys were
having a lot of tough luck on their
shooting, and shot after shot rolled
out of the basket. Mayers made two
brilliant intercepts and dribbled down
the floor to score. The Adanacs
were playing fine basketball and In
the second period they managed to
get a 7 point lead and hold it. The
final score was 28-21 with the Westminster squad in the lead.
Osborne Good Again
Hay played a good game at guard
and Bardsley worked well at forward. There are not many players
that can turn ln a better and more
consistent game than "Tony" Osborne. Mayers and Rann Matthison
were outstanding on the opposing
team and they work together in such
a way that they are hard to stop.
Game On Saturday Night
The Varsity squad play their next
game on Saturday night when they
tangle with the B. and W. Oilmen at
the Varsity gym. The B. and W.
have improved their basketball considerably since they laat met the U.
B.C. outfit and they should be in a
position to give the boys a good run
for their money.

changes were made in the U.B.C.
line-up bringing Irene Wallace from
full-back to inside right, moving Dot
Yelland to right half and Robina
Mouat full back. Dot Yelland played
hard, checking game in her new

Effect Of N.R.A.
On BeC Lumber
Topic Of Stewart
Engineering Society and Commerce Club Hear Views
The N.R.A. and its relation to the
lumber industry of British Columbia
was the subject of Major R. V. Stuart at thc combined meeting of the
Engineering Society and the Commerce Club Wednesday noon. Major
Stuart dealt with first, the objective
of the N.R.A., then he gave an outline of the lumber code and a description of the administrative machinery, and finally he considered
ite immediate effect on the B. C.
lumber Industry.
Major Stuart began by reading to
the meeting the aim of the National
Recovery Act as stated in the. Act.
Next he described the actual drawing up of the lumber code itself. A
meeting was called of the delegates
from the lumber interests of the 48
sections, including Hawaii. This
committee spent ite time ln making
plans and settling differences and
preparing a first draft to be submitted to Washington, O.C., which
would be to everyone's satisfaction.
This first draft was submitted early
in July, 1933, and was found unsatisfactory mainly due to the minimum
wage levels which had been agreed
An instance of what the government thought was a wrong level was
in the South. The committee set a
minimum wage of $3.20 per day
which the government changed to
25 cents pe. hour. To show what an
Improvement these N.R.A. wages
were over previous N.R.A. wages, the
speaker quoted schedules of wages:
In the south the wages were raised
from 90 cents ln some cases for a
10 hour day to 25 cents per hour.
On the West Coast, from 23H cents
per hour to 434. cents per hour.
Thus the main difficulty as overcome. Next the allocation of production had to be settled. To be
considered in this regard were the
amount of timber that one concert
should own, the size of the plant or
mill, the number of employees that
the concert should employ, the taxes
paid, and the past performance of
the concern. Tho machinery in respect to allocation of production and
although tvery opportunity has been
given for appeals against the allocation, there have been comparatively
Nsxt a minimum price had to be
decided upon. At first it was thought
that it would be Impossible to find
a price that would be fair to everyone. The factors to be considered
were the stumpage, costs, accessibility, etc. Production costs ere analysed and a minimum price found
which did not Include depreciation
and which provided no profit. This
problem took many men several
weeks to prepare and covers more
than 2500 items. It was presented in
October and came into effect on November 15. The general average minimum price on log realization was
$19.00  per  thousand  feet.
Under the code, the export of B.
C. logs to the U.S. must not exceed
the average for the period 1929-30
which have been the best years. As
the B.C. market so far has been
better than the American, little footage has been exported. At present
due to the $4 per thousand tariff, it
Is impossible to sell B.C. lumber at
a profit In the U.S.
B.C shingles are given the same
chance as American if the operators
conform with the regulations of the
lumber code. The amount of export
is limited to 221. of the amount sold
In the U.S.
The industry has forwarded several proposals for sustained yield, cooperation on fire protection, conservation of young trees during logging,
forest management plans and selective logging.

Dear Sir:
I wonder if the editor is aware that
the University has a third division
English Rugby team? Of an account
of the game is too much to hope
for perhaps if the scores were quoted
in Tuesdays issue they might show
a few lacadaisical Artsmen Into
turning out and swelling the ranks
of the team to fifteen. The Soccer-
Rugby game on Tuesday noon showed
what little experience it takes to
play the game so let's hope that we
can get together a full team Saturday afternoon against Ex-Burnaby
South, who ore at present hoading
the league. Although we may be a
dead issue, Mr. Editor, we resent
being treated as such.
You too, can write letters like this.
Send for our new free booklet entitled "English For Scandahovians."
If the writer of this note will write
an account of the game, we will be
pleased to publish It with corrections.

The University is very fortunate in being
able to entertain on the campus many of the
prominent speakers who are brought to this
city by the National Council of Education. Recently a capacity audience of students heard
Dr. A. E. Zimmern speak in the Auditorium.
' This afternoon the student body are to be
given the privilege of hearing Sir Arthur
Steel-Maitland speak in Arts 100. Sir Arthur
was formerly Minister of Labour in the Baldwin government, and has long been one of the
outstanding thinkers in the British Conservative party.
He has recently been in the United States
studying the effects of the N. R. A., at the invitation of the Rockefeller Foundation. As well
as speaking to the students, he will lecture this
evening in Old Wesley Church on "Britain and
World Stability." Students will be well-advised
to attend either of these lectures.
The question has arisen before the Board
of Governors as to whether Dr. G. M. Weir,
Minister of Education in the new Patullo Cabinet, should be given indefinite leave of absence from the University or not. As yet the
question is undecided.
In the opinion of the Ubyssey, for the ultimate good of the University the practice of
allowing professors indefinite leave for public
service is unquestionably the best course. It
makes possible the   inclusion   in the bodies
which in the last analysis control the University, of informed and sympathetic men who
view the institution with none of the rancour
that may be evident in certain official quarters.
It would seem also rather selfish that we
should threaten loss of position—especially in
these days—to trained men who choose a university as a haven of security, when these
men should venture to offer their services in
the precarious field of public service.
And is it not realized that the releasing of
professors is not only profitable as advertisement, but in widening the experience of such
professors, extends their capabilities, which is
itself an ultimate gain to the University?
Columnists don't usually co-ordinate well.'
We don't know why it is, but they prefer to
heckle each other. Something about rugged
individualism, we suspect. So the following
story is quite note-worthy. In addition to
having everything a story needs, names, climax,
punch and puns, it illustrates a hitherto unknown phenomena, the co-operation of a couple
of columnists, which approaches the man-
biting-dog phase.
The names? The star of our story is one
Harry Evans, on the editorial staff of the humourous magazine, Life, and the radio columnist
on that journal.    Also figuring largely are
Greta Garbo, Ramon Novarro,  and  Buddy
Rogers, and the name of the cleverest participator of the bunch has somehow become lost.
Last summer Greta (Feet) Garbo was visit-
ing in New York, as you are doubtless aware.
The news seeped into the newspapers before
she arrived that she didn't want to see ANYTHING of nasty ol* newspaper men, she didn't
want to be bothered.  Mr. Evans made a note
of this in his column about the cinema, and
remarked that Garbo was coming to town, and
he hoped to goodness she'd leave him alone.
A few days later he was at the roof-garden
of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel with Buddy
Rogers. Across the room were seated Ramon
Novarro and a companion. During an intermission of eating Mr. Evans strolled across to
talk to him for a few moments. They chatted
for a minute, and Novarro rose.
"By the way," he said, "have you met - - -"
Mr. Evans took one look at the unnoticed dinner partner and melted away. Need we say it
was Garbo?
He returned to his own table, and told Mr.
Rogers about it.   Mr. Rogers grinned.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your recent c&ll for suggestions
for a name for University teams
seems to me to be well worth th.
consideration of cur students. Names
such as are possessed by Washington,
all of whose teams are called Huskies, or Idaho, whose teams are all
^nrned Vandals, add to the individuality of teams.
I offer as a suggestion, the Mus-
queams. The Musqueams are the
Indian tribe on whose land this University is located, and their name
should have a peculiarly local application.
Yours respectfully,
M. M. Stewart.

Dear Sir:
May I submit the name, "Thundor-
birds" for our athletic teams.   It is
common in B. C. Indian Mythology,
and seems appropriate.
Youts truly,
C. Idyll
It is an encouraging sign to see the interest taken by the student body in suggesting
a new name for the University athletic teams.
A distinctive name will a4d largely to the individuality of the teams, as well as providing
solace to harassed sport writers and headline
In order that the best and most popular
name be selected, the Ubyssey suggests that a
committee, consisting of the class athletic representative, judge the respective merits of the

"What did she say?" he asked. "What's
the Mata Hari?'"
The story struck Mr. Evans as too good
to keep, and it was reported in detail the next
week in his column.
The item was read by a columnist in Minneapolis, who reported it in his column with
this addition:
"But  she  didn't say,  'What's  the  Mata
Hari?'   What she said was, 'Ah sweet Mr. E.
of Life at last I've found you.' "
Some fun!
We see by the parking ground that the
"Where's Elmer?" menace has broken out within the walls of our dear old Alma Mater. It's
something that should be curbed in its youth,
but no doubt that is beyond expectation.
And here's a bit of information about where
it all began. There are two stories of its origin. One is that Elmer was a member of the
A.E.F. who went from Portland to France in
1917. He had a distinct tendency toward overindulgence in the matter of liquid refreshment, and was continually sinking under a
table somewhere and no one could ever find
him for days. "Where's Elmer?" became the
watchword of his division. On the Armistice
he sank under a table once too often, apparently, for he's never been seen since. Probably
he's gone to Africa to shoot those big pink elephants he'd been seeing for so long.
The division to wj^ch he belonged had a
convention this summer, and "Where's Elmer?"
was revived with such vigour that it has become the, scourge of a nation.
The other explanation is that it wasn't
Elmer at all but a lady called Alma. But that,
as Uncle Wiggley says, is another story.
We're inclined to think that he isn't lost
anyway, and that his name wasn't Elmer
either, but Chang Suey.
We bet you thought that those black stripes
on the walls in the various class rooms in these
parts were the laths showing through. You're
wrong. In fact, they're just the opposite. The
black stripes come between the laths. And
here's why.
Plaster, as you no doubt know, is porous.
The air can filter through it, as long as there's
no lath on the back. Then between the laths,
the air filters joyously back and forth, and
the dust in it gets strained out. Hence the
stripes. You're welcome for the information

Dear Sir:
Kindly allow* the University of Albert. Rugby t#am ic express its appreciation cf U. H. C. hospitality.
It Is hard to find words wh. ;h adequately express ou? feelings. Rather
lame, lt |eems, to say that the deference and kindness shown us live
up to your enviable reputation. However, we quote e«ery single member
of our party when we say that you
showed us the bast time it has been
our pleasure to experience as a team.
A time which we shall always carry
ln our memories as one of the most
enjoyable of our college careers.
Had we come away with the Hardy
trophy and had we not experienced
the full flush of sportsmanship and
good fellowship accorded us, our
trip would have been In vain.
We thank, not only those who spent
so much of their time with us, but
your entire student body from whom
emanated that intangible, yet very
noticeable, feeling of friendship.
It is our sincerest hope that we
shall soon have th. pleasure of entertaining U.B.C. at Alberta.

Dear Sir:
May we make use of this space to
comment on the uncalled-for action
of a member of an Economics 1 section in undertaking to rebuke Dr.
Carrothers for his policy, in terms
that we consider lacking in politeness. We wish Dr. Carrothers to
know that this attitude is not representative of the class, and thvt d°-

truly appreciate his efforts on our
