Students Volunteer
To Maintain Library
During Hard Times
Library Can Maintain Service Only Through
Voluntary Help Of Students — Serious
Disruption Would Otherwise Be
Inevitable
"Studenta know that very serious reductions made in grants
by the provincial government have lessened the institution's
range o! usefulness," declared John Ridington to the Ubyssey
Wednesday. "Few, however, realize how close some of the essential services of the University came to being entirely disrupted."
"tha Circulation Department of thef —   """ «    •  ■       '     ■■    -

Library Is a service that affects at
least 2,000 people-1760 studtnts; 169
members of tht Teaching and Administrative staffs; and mors than 109
stadtnW outside the University,"
continued Mr. Ridington. "In tht
courts of tht yttr tht Library loans
almost 109,000 books. This work has
been done by a staff of six or seven
people—Miss Lanning (in charge of
the Department); two call boys;
three student assistants, with occasional htlp from tht rest ef the Library staff.
Btvenut Reductions
"Owing to tht serious reductions in
tht University's revenue, no financial
provision was made for the payment
of student assistants or of call boys.
Tht staff of tat Circulation Department wag reduced from six to one.
"That this essential department of
the library service should continue
to function at heretofore, was, under
tmv cimugjtancts, obviously impossible, fte Library Staff could fort-
sm no alternative but that of a "help
yourself" system—indiscriminate access by all students to the stacks,
and the closing of the Library every
evening. Not only would the reduced hours of service mean a hardship to the students, but there would
have been a serious disorganization of
the book collection, due to the misplacement of volumes, incomplete
and unreliable records of loans, and,
Inevitably, losses of books difficult
and costly to replace and, in some
cases, unprocurable," continued the
librarian.
Volunteer Service
"Everybody concerned can congratulate themselves that none of these
disaster's have occurred. The library
continues to give service for thirteen

Shakspeare's Art
Above Vulgarity
Says Duke Balden
"Shakespeare is but a poet of lords
ex\ ladies," declared Duke Ashwin
Balden in a lecture on Shakespeare
and Shaw In the Aztec Room of the
Hotel Georgia last Wednesday.
He found Shakespeare's greatest
fault to be his failure to face fairly
and squarely the eternal question life,
"What are we here for?"
"His wit Is vulgar," declared the
speaker. "He wrote romantic nonsense, and If he had not been a great
poet, his rubbish would have been
forgotten long ago." Mr. Balden stated however, that Shakespeare's great
work was to take the crude folk-forms

Institute Lecturer
To Discuss Locusts
It is probable that the title of Saturday night's Institute lecture, to be
given by Professor George J. Spencer
In the auditorium of the University,
has sent a good many citizens of
Vancouver to their bibles during the
present week. The title as given in
the Institutes' programme is Mark
1, VI.
Reference to the Gospel in question
gives the text as follows:
"And John waa clothed with camel's hair and with a girdle of a skin
about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey."
The reference only deepens the
mystery.
Professor Spencer is known as a
specialist in Entomology in the University's Department of Zoology. The
locusts referred to in the biblical
narrative are surely not insects such
as those that in ancient daya plagued
Pharoah and the Egyptians, but the
fruit of a tree common in Arabia
and Palestine and not unknown in
the markets of seaports. In appearance it is not unlike a bean, with a
shiny skin chocolate in colour and
always  twisted  in drying.    It  con-
St. Cecilia Choristers
And Two Soloists
Charm Audience
Members of tht Bt Cecilia Choristers, with tht assistance of two
soloists, gave • recital tot tht ttudtnt body in tht Auditorium at noon
yesterday. A fairly large audience
wat present. Tht recital was under
tht direction of Nancy Paisley Benn,
who <also accompanied for tht staging, and sponsored by tht Musical
Society of the University.
Tht choral ensemble, nine girls
selected from tht Choristers, opened
the programme with a group of three
selections, "Laughter and Tears," by
Shubert, "Though Philomena Lost
Her Love," by Morley, and "Tht
Swallow" by Hoist. Later in tht
programme, the ensemble sang an
other group of three songs, "Drink
to Mt Only," "Tht Legend," by
Tchalkowsky, and "O Dear, What
Can tht Matter Be."
Tht soloists were Mrs. Leonard
Dawes, soprano, who sang "Over the
Mountains" by Quitter, and "Sing,
Joyous Bird" by Philips: and Robert
Coburn. boy soprano, who sang
"Hark, Hark, the Lark" by Schubert,
and "Down Here" by Brahe. Mr.
Ralph Lear, tenor, who was slated
to sing two numbers, was unable to
attend, because of illness; Mrs. Dawes
sang two solos, "Whtn tht Wind's
in tht Chimney'' by Sanderson, and
"Sing, ting Blackbird" by Phillips,
la plate of bis numbers.

In his discussion of Shaw's early life
he said that Shaw once stated, "I
left school at the age of fourteen, and
so I was able to get a good education." Another interesting statement
was, "that If a man has no hesitation
in allowing his mother to do work
that he should do for himself, in being a burden to his famly when they
most need his help, in disdaining to
work in order to carry on his art, be
the5 mark of a great artist,—then Shaw
was truly great."
As a critic Shaw frequently annoyed the actors with his great booming laugh In a moment of supreme
pathos, and once was expelled from
a theatre because of his unconventional dress, but undaunted, returned
with a complimentary ticket.
Shaw's life is devoted to exposing
the crimes of poverty, war and disease,
and his religious views are that God,
or the Life Force is an imperfect power
striving to become perfect.
for the making of wine.
It is believed, however, that Professor Spencer is to discuss the insect, and not the tree.
Grasshopers have periodically done
tremendous damage to crops in the
prairie provinces and states. They
have come down literally as clouds,
and utterly destroyed every green
and living thing. Science knows little as to the causes of the periodicity
at their outbreaks or the reasons they
congregate in clouds numbering millions upon millions, or of the means
of controlling their devastation.
Professor Spencer's lecture is to
be illustrated by slides showing the
various species and illustrating the
areas in the dry belt of the Province which they affect.
Because of the very great interest
taken in the lectures offered by the
Institute this season, this and succeeding lectures will be given in the
University auditorium. All the Institute lectures are free to the public.
Burrard Bridge
Forms Subject of
Address to E.I.C.
"The construction of Burrard
Bridge was the realization of an ambition I had fostered for twenty
years," stated Major Grant, civic engineer, in a discourse upon Vancouver's latest possession, before the
Vancouver branch of the Engineering
Institute of Canada, Wednesday last,
in the Medical-Dental auditorium.
Since 1911, when he constructed the
Vancouver Block, he said, he had resided in the city, and from the first
conception of Burrard Bridge had
followed developments closely.
The earliest mode of transit across
the perilous waters of False Creek
consisted of being propelled in a
row-boat by a stalwart native for
25 cents. Wooden bridges replaced
this in time, yet traffic so increased
that prior to the building of the
Burrard structure, Granville street
bridge had daily supported nearly

thrilling murder mystery. The action takes place on tht day whtn a
really Innocent man has been hanged
for murder. By a succession of incident*, suspicion for tht crime is
directed on ont of tht characters,
but at tht last moment comes evidence which points conclusively to
the guilt of another. As yet, no
decision has been made as to the
principal characters, Butters and
Breen, but C. Clarke, Sargent, and
Keate are still hi the running for
these roles.

Biology Graduate
New Professor
At Queen's
Advancement of another U. B. C.
graduate in the academic field, is
announced by Queen's University
Kingston, in the appointment of Dr.
John Stanley of the National Research
Laboratories, Ottawa, as Assistant
Professor of Biology. Dr. Stanley was
born ln England but has lived most
of his life at Vancouver, B. C. He
graduated with his B.A. from the
University of British Columbia hi
1927 and then proceeded to the University of Minnesota, where he secured his M.A. in 1929 and his Ph.D. in
1931.
While studying for his doctorate he
spent fifteen months in Honolulu as
research assistant in the Department
of Entomology at the experimental
station of the Association of Hawaiian
Pineapple Canners. His special work
has been the application of mathematics to biological problems, particu-
uarly those relating to the growth of
insect populations. During the last
seven months he has been attached to
the Division of Research Information
of the National Research Laboratories.
It is interesting, also, to note that Dr.
Stanley's father and grandfather attended Christ's Hospital, England ,the
institution of. which Principal Fyfe of
Queen's was formerly headmaster.
Progenitors Of Shrdlu Etaoin
Made Whoops In Ancient Babylon
Aspects of ancient Babylonian myth- to be turned aside at the last moment,
ology, carrying a startling resemblance
to the legends and romantic folk-lore
of other ancient races, were pointed
out by Dr. Irwin of the University
of Chicago in a talk held in Agriculture 100, Tuesday noon, under the
auspices of the Student Christian
Movement.
Speaking on the subject "Myths in
Ancient Oriental History," Dr. Irwin
explained that many of these myths
arose from the beliefs which ancient
Babylonians held in regard to death
and the underworld. For instance, it
was a then current belief that all
those who died victims of a plague
went to dwell in the underworld. Another common superstition was that
somewhere one could find the 'secret
of immortality, and several of the
myths which were recounted by Dr.
Irwin dealt with this search for everlasting life. One seeker even went
so far as to ride to the very gates of
heaven on the back of an eagle, only
baffled, from his purpose.
Daughter Exchange Set Up
He showed the business conditions
of the time, how people forged money
and made base metal look like gold,
how kings sold their daughters to
camel-drivers and took the camel-
drivers' daughters for their harems,
how all the petty snobbery and farcical events of human life could be told
by the Babylonians just as well as by
.the best modern authors, and how the
political condition of the world was,
at that early date.
He illustrated with stories how the
Babylonian Gods were divided into
two classes, Air Gods and Earth Gods.
These were endowed with human passions, married and had quarrels, and
killed each other at odd intervals.
Hell was a common meeting-place for
the more serious drinkers among men
and the occasional souse would take
a   jaunt   up   to   Heaven   to   look

Communism
Pro and Con
At Forum
The problem of Communism hi
present-day society was discussed in
the opening debate of the Paliamen-
Uay Forum hold on Tuesday. Nell
Perry and Milton Owen secured a
victory over Ken Beckett and Prank
Thornloe who supported the resolution, that tht British Empire must
take tht Moscow road."
Hit debate was opened by X. Beckett who defined the resolution as the
(following, of the Communlstlc-gystem
progressively to an economic end.
The only alternative to state control is to go back to the daya of tht
free fight in industry and the survival of the fittest. The latter move,
he continued, would be impossible,
and the most concrete example of
state control in modern times is the
recent conversion loan carried out in
Great Britain in the past few months.
Unemployment
Thornloe, seconding the affirmative, pointed out that Russia's controlling the training of all her workmen had solved the unemployment
problem, which is the bug-bear of
all other nations. This had resulted
hi an increase in production, and had
kept a great amount of capital in
the country which would otherwise
have gone out.
Neil Perry, in answering, maintained that before Great Britain and
htr colonies could make a start

Daily Weather Report
In Science Building
"Mild with occasional showers," or
"Increasing west and southerly winds"
are some of the hot tips on the weather situation that can be had for the
taking over in the Physics Department. Dr. Shrum, who receives weather bulletins daily (except Sundays)
from Seattle, is having them posted
for public perusal at the north end of
the Science building on the first floor.
Although they originate ln the
Sound City they provide information
concerning the whole of North America and weather forecasts can be
gleaned by studying two or three of
the latest bulletins.
Last week-end's fine weather was
forecasted by these bulletins although
the dally papers threatened continued
rain.

Council Decides
Against Charge
For Xmas Plays
No charge will be made for the
Christmas Plays this year. This was
decided Monday night, when Council
succeeded in balancing its budget
without the necessity of such additional revenue.
Outside of budgets, the principal
business considered was the programme for Homecoming, which
takes place at the end of the firat
week in November. According to
the plans drawn up by Milt Owen
and approved by Council, the festivities will commence with a supper for the visiting graduates in the
Cafeteria on Friday, November 4, at
6:00 p.m.
This will be followed by Theatre
Night in the auditorium at 8 o'clock,
to which grads will be admitted free,
but for which students will pay
twenty-five cents. Preference in
seating will be given to grads. Skits
will be presented by the following
groups: Musical Society, Players'
Club, Agriculture, Science, Arts '33
and '34, Arts '35 and '36, while songs
and yells by the Pep Club, speeches,
introductions, and reading of letters
from grads will occupy the intermissions.
On Saturday, November 5, there
will be an English Rugby game on
the Varsity playing field at 2:30 p.m.
between Varsity and Occasionals, to
which admission will be twenty-five
cents. It is probable that special seating accomodation will be available
for this game. On the same afternoon at 4 o'clock, the Women's Undergraduate Society will hold a tea
dance in the Peter Pan Ballroom.
On Sunday, November 6, the programme will conclude with a church
service at 10:45 a.m.
Among the other regular business
of Council which came up was the
acceptance of the financial report on
the Frosh Reception which revealed
a net loss of $17:12. Page Two

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
Council's spending of the operating surplus of $3,900 from
the last session can be criticised from various angles. Mark Collins' statement regarding what has been done and what is intended to be done has cleared up the atmosphere considerably
and so the Ubyssey comes forward with a concrete suggestion
which we consider worthy of the attention of students.
Acting on the advice of the auditors, Council has decided
to put the unexpended balance into a Stadium Fund Account
for current improvement. Very good—as far as this year is
concerned.  But what of future years?
Council's plan appears to have the erection of bleachers on
the stadium site as its object, with the ultimate aim of a permanent Stadium bowl within the next few years.
* *     •
This latter object cannot be atained without floating a bond
issue, and it is impossible to do that until the Gymnasium Bonds
have been retired. There is another aspect to the situation. The
present bond market is not exactly favorable to the launching
of a new issue. Indications are that lt would be Impossible to
issue a new series of bonds to yield less than seven or eight per
cent. In our opinion that is entirely too much to pay for our
stadium. -
The Ubyssey doubts very much whether it is advisable to
consider the rection of a permanent edifice for another twenty-
five years at the least. Past experience has shown that it is
impossible to obtain a crowd of any proportions to any except
championship games even in our modern gym. It is going to
take a great deal of pursuading to make crowds, large enough
to make the stadium a paying proposition, appear on the campus
for Big Four or McKechnie Cup games.   Track meets seem to
have gone out of style with the paying public.
* •     *
Taking all these things into consideration, the Ubyssey respectfully suggests to the inhabitants of our "pocket edition
Olympus" that a by-law should be passed in the very near
future, to the effect that all future surpluses be put aside in an
investment fund, the income from which fund will be turned
into general funds. The by-law should be submitted to competent legal advisors so that it will be impossible for future Councillors to touch the principal.
In fifty years time, a hundred dollars here and three hundred there will amount to a considerable sum, and the annual
income will prove a welcome addition to operating revenue. At
the present time it is possible to invest in gilt edged securities
and cumulative preference shares to yield at least six per cent.
* *     *
Students will say that fifty years is too far ahead to plan,
but it should be pointed out to them, that although that period
represents two generations in the life of the world, it is a mere
minute or two in the life of a corporation. The Alma Mater
Society is incorporated, and should therefore plan, as a corporation does, to get the benefits of a permanent legal entity.
Far be it from us to suggest budgeting for a surplus. But
at the same time, a conservative financial policy consists in
erring on the large side when estimating expenditure, and on
the small side when considering revenues. This policy, if carried
out consistently, is bound to result in the creation of an occasional surplus, and there should be some concrete policy laid
down in the constitution to guide Council and to preserve advantages gained, rather than dissipate them in ephemeral mean-
derings.

TOTEM SALE
Bargain hunters and other Scotsmen are making their way to a monstrous Rummage Sale of old U.B.C.
journals which is in progress.
Council is practically giving away
old styles ln Totems and Handbooks
in an effort to realise a little cold
cash on their frozen assets. Last
year's annuals are priced very low
at 75 cents and others vary inversely
as their age.
Though the different models are
anywhere from one to seven, years
out of fashion, they are in perfect
condition.
192S model is the oldest and there
are seven others more recent. 192?
issues are missing from the shelf
however, as they were all sold out
in the boom year, but there is a
good supply of the two later editions.
JUST ONE DECADE AGO
Ten years ago today, the students of the University made
the great trek from the old, crowded buildings at Fairview to
the spacious campus which they now inhabit. In those days the
Science Building was a gaunt steel frame, lawns and shrubbery
were non-existant, and the Library was a newly excavated hole.
The students of those days had just finished a great campaign for the removal of the university to its present site, and
every student in the long line which marched from Fairview to
Point Grey gathered a stone from the campus-to-be. These
stones were built into the Cairn which is between the bus stand
and the Science Building. The pile is unique in that it is a
memorial to an idea rather than to an individual or a group of
individuals.
Those students who are here now would do well to remember their predecessors and work and plan for the future of
the University which we all love and revere.
Senior Draw Gets Big
Crowd Of Sophs
Out To Shout
Future arts graduates learned their
fate at the class draw Tuesday noon.
Owing to the unavoidable absence of
Dr. Carrothers, who was to have
drawn the men, Jean McDiarmid and
Bernle Jackson performed as the arbiters ot Fate.
The couples thus drawn will make
merry at the Arts '33 Class Party, to
take place on Friday in the Aztec
Room ot the Hotel Georgia from, 8:30
to 12:00. Harold King's Orchestra will
supply the syncopation. The party
will be informal as decreed by Council, instead of formal as previously announced.
The drawing was uneven and five
or six men drew blanks. Attendance at
the draw was not limited to those most
vitally interested. The large lecture
room, Arts 100, was filled to the doors
with Sophs. Wise cracks and hilarious
applause interferred several times with
the business in hand.

First Try-Outs Of

She finally decides upon the most
practical solution. Tht Misses Scott.
Ryan and Ainsworth art still hi competition for the title part. Jacqueline MacGregor's work as Mme.
Grace was especially commended.
There has been no real competition
for the part of Miss Sparrow but it
is likely that the role may fall to
Frances Lucas.
More Bloodshed
"Smithfield Preserved" Is a Shakes-
perian travesty, dealing with the
rivalry of two factions—the butchers
and the green-grocers. There is
much bloodshed, but the ending Is
peaceful through the marriage of
Velia, daughter of Sirloin Tender,
the butcher, to Asparaggio, son of
Herbaccio, the green-grocer. Competition for these parts was very
lively. The part of Velia has not
been decided upon yet. Verna Shilvock was praised for her work in
this yart and Mary Griffin was very
good as the queen. Douglas Brown
and Prevost were successful as Brisket and Sirloin Tender, respectively.
Hilker makes an extremely dashing
Asparaggio.
Another Cockney Play
The fourth play is "The Changeling," one of W. W. Jacob's stories
of Cockney life. The hero, Hen-
shaw, has been seen by his wife,
flirting with another woman. Not
knowing how to explain the incident
he takes the advice of his friend,
Ted Stokes, and pretends that the
flirtation was between the lady and
a mysterious Scotchman, who la his
double. In the end the two men
are caught by their own tricking and
made ridiculous. It is not decided
who will fill these parts. Chave did
good work as Henshaw, and Joan
MacNaughton and Ruth Madeley are
in close competition for the part of
Mrs. Henshaw.

Students Volunteer to

hours a day, aa heretofore, with the
exception of Friday evening, when
the building is closed at S p.m. Readers desirous of borrowing a book can
still ascertain when the volume la
returnable. The order and arrangement of the book collection haa been
preserved so that books are readily
flndable.
"This continued efficiency of service has been due to two facts. One
member of the Library staff desired,
for personal reasons, to give only
half-time service. The proportion of
salary thus saved rendered possible
the engagement of two call boys until March 31 next, the end of the
University year. The second factor
ln solving the problem was the offer
of a number of students to give unpaid service at the Loan Desk, in
order that the work of the Circulation Department might continue unimpaired. No loss than seventeen students have thus volunteered. Tht
whole student body is under obligation to thorn for their contribution
of tune and labour, for without these
contributions efficient loan desk service would bt impossible.
Appreciation
The Board of Governors, the President, and tht Library Committee
havt all expressed their deep appreciation of the way these students have
come to the rescue of the Loan Desk.
Tht Board of Governors and tht Library Committee have passed formal resolutions of thanks, and these
havt been forwarded individually to
the volunteers.
"The following is a list of those
who have thus helped to solve a difficult situation:
Grace Knowlton, May Bescoby, Isabel Arthur, Eleanor Klllam, May
Warden, Margaret Stobie, Jean
Campbell, Douglas Clarke, Peter
Grauer, George Cockburn, Harold
Canty, Donald Davidson, Wlllard Ireland, William Mathers, Jack Sparks,
Fred W. Bdgardus, Peter Caddy. In
addition, a graduate of the University, Miss Patricia Harvey, has volunteered to do duty at the Loan
Desk for four hours a day.
"Service so generous and so efficient deserves acknowledgement and
appreciation by all who benefit therefrom. The Librarian and the Library
staff desire publicly to add their
thanks to those already officially
transmitted, while every student of
the University has a debt ot gratitude to those whose unpaid labour
has rendered possible the continued
efficiency of an essential University
service," concluded Mr. Ridington.
CHEMISTRY SOCIETY
The next closed meeting of the
Chemistry Society will be held on
Wednesday, November 2, at 8:00 p.m.
at the home of Miss Dorothy Wylie,
1712 Alma Road. Papers will be read
by Miss Elsie Spragge, Mr. Bob Find-
lay and Mr. Norton Wilson. Members
are reminded that they must bring
their fees to this meeting.
CANADIAN ART TREATED
AT CUIBJECTDRE
F. H. Verity, member of the Canadian "Group of Seven" school of
painting, addressed members of the
Art Club ln the Art Gallery Wednesday evening. Mr. Varley's subject was, "The Theory of Painting."
Thtrt art two decadents, said the
speaker, In tht field of painting;
first, tht successful academician,
copying his old work and instituting
nothing new; and secondly, the artist blindly following tradition. Both
are in a state of retrogression. Thtrt
is need for pure expression at the
| back of all work—pure expression
results from the artist's immediate
response to the urge in him to
create.
There is no such thing as abstract
art. A definite standard of taste
cannot be set; like or dislike is within the individual. Again, the artist
stands part by himself, although he
owes his existence to the awakening of the community to the world
of art; the stirring of the many creates the one man.
The Old Masters were magnificent;
but they should not be slavishly
copied. The artist, like Giotti, should
Introduce something new. In Canada, the Group of Seven, traditional
yet modern m its treatments, has
become known chiefly through the
antagonism, and the consequent
thought, it has aroused.
"This country," said Mr. Varley, in
conclusion, "Is leading hi the realm
of modern art. There is a great future for the artist here, both In the
natural subjects about him, and ln
the reception accorded him by the
Canadian public.
WORLD CONSOLIDATION
FORESEEN^ V.C.U.
"The idea of consolidation ot the
world under one controlling influence
and power is gripping the minds of
men today," declared Dr. W. M. Robertson, former pastor of the Foxteath
Tabernacle in Liverpool, in speaking
to members of the V.C.U. Wednesday
noon.
"The major factor contributing to
this," he said, "Is the swiftness of
communication." He also pointed out
how the thoughts of the people today
consider the individual secondary to
society. But he emphasized tht fact
that until man's heart is dealt with
the world will not be in a satisfactory
condition.
Dr. Robertson went on to say how
the idea of a world state involves the
idea of a world religion. The idea of
solidarity of man ignores the reality
of sin. Christianity comes as the sole
claimant to the hearts of man—the
only safeguard against sin.
The speaker concluded by giving a
picture of the day when there will
be a federated society, which will
have as its head, a tyrant, a director,
a man of sin. The world is being
prepared for the appearance of a
man of sin who will govern this world
as a federate society and who will be
in direct antagonism to the spirit of
God.

A DISSERTATION ON THE ART
OF COOKING
Editor, Ubyssey, Dear Sir;
Did you actually tvtr set a draw
cooked? Weill If you never have,
you should havt been at the Senior
Draw on Tuesday. Personally I havt
heard of these tilings being done but
never before have I bad tht extreme
good fortune to set tht deed actually
performed. What! You weren't there?
Well, I'll tell you about li It was
this-a-way, or maybe it was that-a-
way; anyway, because ite an old
Spanish custom, Madame Fortune or
mtybo it was Miss Fortune was
drawing the John Henrys from the
cardboard gift-bag; while Mist-ER-
Fortune was nonchalantly trilling the
names and thrilling the hearts of our
would-be mates.
The usual uproar waa present
when suddenly like a bolt out of
the blue came the name of our leading Senioretta. "One good 'precedent' deserves another," said Miss Fortune right on the 'Dot' as she fumbled and fumbled and fumbled, until finally after much scouting the
desired male was found hiding in a
secluded corner of the box. Miss
Fortune's face lighted up as sht
triumphantly emerged from her most
energetic labours.
After the mob (mostly sophs) was
quietened down and the uproar was
over, B.C. i.e. Be Cool and Calm and
Collect, arose and eased his way
down to the Caf. When asked if he
had seen Mist-ER Fortune, he replied in the affirmative, adding quite
rashly, I thought, that he'd got the
D.T.'s, but he certainly looked In
the pink of condition to me. Somebody once said, "What*s in a name."
If you'll pardon me saying so, apparently there is a H ... of a lot
in JUST that.
Follower of the Green-Eyed Monster.—J. Inkster.
What People
Are Saying
Dr. PUcher—It depends where the
person is tickled, or how the person
is tickled, or who does the tickling.
Dr. Sedgewick—I thought this class
was too ugly.
Professor Robertson — If we don't
hang together we'll hang apart
Professor Wood — You're not a
slouch; you're just a lazy little brat.
Dr. Sedgewick—"Bernard Shaw Is a
considerable genius; ht would bt
about on the level of a minor Elizabethan."
Prof. Henderson — "I think Adam
spoke Gaelic."
Dr. Sedgewick—"If making love isn't
hot, it's no good."
Dr.   Carrothers   (to  argumentative
student)—"I  can't  get  where  your
mind has gone to."
Bob Osborne—"I wear glasses to
keep the soup out of my eyes."

towards Moscow it would be necessary to participate hi a revolution
which in countries so highly developed educationally and industrially
would be well nigh impossible.
Milt Owen, supporting his leader
made the point that the acceptance
of communism by Great Britain hi
the face of all other nations On
whose trade she depends for existence would be nothing less than
suicidal.
New Speakers
In tht rebuttals which followed
several new speakers made their
maiden speeches. E. Vlck, speaking
for the affirmative, said that foreigners never really saw the real contented Russia. Lando maintained that
emotional reasons alone would prevent Great Britain from following
tht Moscow road; another speaker
for tht negative said that England
had already had htr revolution la the
timt of Cromwell, and consequently
Russia was two hundred and fifty
years behind-hand. Vlck Dryer In
answer to this last statement, pointed
out that "bloody revolution" was not
the only method which could bt employed for "travelling the Road."
Prof. J. P. Day, fa* opening the
new session, welcomed the newcomers, and said that debating was
a form of mental gymnastics, and
"that just as iron aharpeneth iron,
so man aharpeneth the countenance
of his friend."

Students' Council, may they rest In

missing. Evidently they don't consider the Lit. Sup. to be a drawing
card. And then again there is the

is the cost of the numerous cuts, or
pictures, which help to make up the

for an outside ball gamt.   Like the
Occasional Observer,  I wax poetic,

Tht rugby players swam around,
Their suits were saturated.
And as thty kicked about the bell
They kicked about the weather.

Then got themselves together.

Free from rain exposure.

twice Its destined weight, the speaker informed the gathering.
A B.C. Product
Major Grant next outlined the
planning and legal processes involved
in the inception of his task. The
help of local architects was Invoked,
materials were decided upon and
ordered, and the many details that
crop up in such a work were carefully considered.
These details were enumerated at
length By the speaker and appreciated by the audience. He emphasized
that where possible B. C. products
were used.
"And in the end," he said, "thtrt
arose a truly British Columbian
product."
Aesthetic Effect
The talk was adequately illustrated
with lantern slides which showed the
bridge from a variety of angles, testifying Major Grant's assertion that
"the aesthetic effect of the structure
received most careful consideration."
One view, depicting the stairway and
brazier (south end) was of real artistic merit, while several views of
the bridge revealed the graceful lines
of the whole.
Other slides recorded the progress
of the construction and salient features of the bridge. The last included the embellishments on the north
and south cross galleries: the city
arms, the casts of boat prows, the
green tiling and slating, and the centre east and west adornments; replicas of Captains Vancouver and Burrard.
One picture solved the baffling
mystery ot the contents of the centre
cross galleries. Contrary to expectation, lt revealed no speak-easy, but
simply a forbidding cement void with
a few light switches hi one abyssmal
corner.
The last event before the opening
ceremony was a'test loading,' and the
audience was rewarded with a slide
of four steam rollers and three flush-
ers pursuing their sedate course

cycle of the seasons was shown to be
caused by some god incurring another's wrath and being imprisoned,
only to be released by some other
god and able to roam free until captured once more. The gradual change
of the deities from gods to godesses
was touched upon and Babylonian
morality was quite clearly denoted.
Biting satire is the keynote of most of
the work, and the gods art not made
to appear any mora respectable than
present dsy movie stars.
Ancient Muck Artists
Much of the ancient Babylonian
folklore Is woven about two men
named Ollgamesh and Engidu and Dr.
Irwin related a few of their thrilling
adventures. On one occasion the goddess Ishtar, "ln a heavenly rage at
Qtlgamesh's refusal to marry htr,"
caused a monstrous bull to be created
for the purpose of despatching the
unlucky mortal. Ollgamesh and his
comrade-at-arms, Engidu, however,
were more than a match for the messenger of Ishtar, for while Engidu held
him by the tail, Gilgamesh ran him
through with a sword.
But ln the end, however, Ishtar finished one up by causing Engidu to
die ot a fever, which, of course, ensured his arrival at the underworld.
Gilgamesh, overcome with grief at
the loss of his friend, resolved to set
out on the search for immortality.
This he began by making a pilgrimage
to the abode of Utnapishtim, the
Babylonian equivalent of Noah, who
had become Immortal many years be
fore through being the sole survivor
of a great flood.
Week's Lectures Cancelled
Upon arriving at the dwelling of
this immortal, after a long and ardu
ous journey over deserts, mountains,
and seas, he was advised that to be
come the possessor of immortality he
must stay awake for seven days. This
he failed to accomplish, but as an
alternative succeeded ln procuring a
certain plant from the bottom of the
sea to serve the same purpose. While
making the return journey, however,
the treasured article was stolen from
him by a snake while he lay asleep at
an oasis. Thus Gilgamesh lost for
ever his chance of becoming a god and
getting even with hot-headed Ishtar.
It was stated that Dr. Irwin may be
present at one of the week-end camps
held later In the term, and thus stu
dents are allowed a second opportun
Ity of hearing one of his engaging
talks.

The MIRACLE
of SPRING
The dull, drab days of winter are coming apace and unless you do as you should do during the next few weeks
your garden can not fully function as an environment for
that entrancing miracle!
"It would seem that no season of the garden years could be so entirely entrancing as that when tht long-stemmed BREEDER, COTTAGE and DARWIN TULIPS are at the height of their beauty. Then
is such gracious colour, SUCH GRACE OF FORM, such gleaming
freshness as never at any other time."
"And Earth unto htr finger tips
Tingles with tht Spring."
THE PERFECT BULB will give the perfect miracle, no
other will! A perfect bulb is a well-ripened, fully-matured
bulb, free from diseases and mechanical injuries resulting
in disease.
Perfect bulbs, particularly tulips, can be produced commercially only in favoured parts of the world. British
Columbia in this respect is not second to certain European countries; it is AHEAD OF THOSE COUNTRIES!

VARSITY TAKES CLOSE
GAME FROM PROVINCE
SQUAD WITH 33
Campbell and Osborne Star At Varaity Pulls
Game Out Of Fire In Dying Moments-
Second String Una Looks Good
Lapsing from sensational to indif- For those taking Stat. 1: Varsity—
ferent basketball, Varsity "Senior. Osborne 08), CampbeU «), Ntehol'
A" squad just managed to pull the "en (2), Bardsley (5), Wright <2),
game out of the fire Wednesday night Lee, Tervo (2), Matthison, Douglas
at New Westminster when they
nosed out the Dally Province team
by 83-80.
The game marked the return to
form of two of the old Varsity stal-^
warts, Bob Osborne and PI Campbell. Osborne, playing with a game
ankle, was tht center of Varsity attack at all times and netted IS points.
Campbell accounted for 7 points, including the basket that put Varsity
tut In front with about ont rrilnutt
left to play.
Varsity Starts Fast
From tht tip-off it looked like an
all-Varsity night when the students
ran in 5 points before Joe Hall scored
a foul shot for Province. Tony Osborne sank his second shot and Jimmy Bardsley followed with two beautiful baskets to bring the count to
11-1 with only five minutes of the
game gone. Province rallied with
baskets by Haugh and Henry.
Bardsley scored his fifth point on
a foul shot and then Varsity lapsed
into an indifferent spell which cost
them S points. Coach Allen decided
to try out his second string forward
line and substituted Douglas, Ttrvo,
and Matthison. This trio started to
fight right away and Bandy Ttrvo
was not long In converting ont of
his famous underhand shots from
about the center of the floor.
"Horses" Douglas and Ken Wright,
who had been playing a great game
at guard, both sank shots, Osborne
converted a foul, while Province retaliated with baskets by Haugh and
Smith. Half time found the score
20-14 in favor of the students.
Shortly after the opening of the
second half Bob Osborne scored
twice, his second shot coming as the
result of one of the prettiest plays
of the night. Ken Wright took the
ball in his own zone, dribbled the
length of the floor and then, without
looking, flicked the ball on a "Statue
of Liberty" play to the center of the
court. Osborne raced in and shoved
the ball in the basket. The play drew
a big hand.
(3)-33.
Province - HaU (1). Haugh (7),
Heath (8), Henry (», Smith (f),
McDonnell (2), Peeblee-30.
PI CAMPBELL
One of the veterans of the Championship squad of 1980-81, PI showed
in the Province game Wednesday that
he has lost none of his skUl ln the
comparatively inactive season of last
year. He is also ont of tht best
quartor-milers on tht Campus.
Province Takes Lead
Varsity again went Into one of Its
periodic lapses and Province ran hi
8 points without a reply. Coach
Allen took out the second string line
and shoved in Campbell, Nicholson,
and Bardsley. OtmpbeU converted
a shot, Nicholson followed with a
foul, but Smith and Henry of Province each scored field goals to tie
the score at 27-27. For the first time
in the game Province took the lead
when Heath broke away for a pretty
basket. At this time Province were
completely dominating the play. Varsity seemed listless and missed a lot
of openings. However, when they
were down two points with only five
minutes left to play they snapped
out of it and Osborne converted a
foul shot to reduce the deficit to
one point. Then Pi Campbell scored
with three members of the Province
team hanging on to various parts
of the Campbell anatomy. Bob Osborne put the game on ice when he
looped a shot from the center of the
floor which completely broke down
what was left of the Province morale.
Haugh converted a foul for the
Newsies but it was too late to do any
good and the students ended with a
three-point advantage.
A fair crowd turned out and were
treated to an even closer game when
the Adanacs won from Sparlings In
an ove»U.ne game by 46-42. Buck
Yeo and Hal Straight handled the
whistles.

Down Oil Town Squad
Varsity feathered followers cruised
up Burrard Inlet on the good ship
White Iris on October 19, and , after
arriving only an hour and a halt late,
managed to eke out a 9-7 victory
over the Oil Town squad. An excellent supper was consumed and
Varsity embarked, the trip home being uneventful except for the rain
and some fearful voices.
The team: M. Lock, E. Gleed, M.

After a week's rest, the Varsity
Senior Soccer team swings into action
again on Saturday at Cambie Street
against the fourth place Cowan-
Dodson eleven. A victory in this contest will place the Blue and Gold
squad in fourth place.
A win for the Varsity eleven will
also mark their first victory of the
season, as, after dropping their first
game to North Shore United, the boys
drew their next three gamea. However, they have played fewer games
than the other teams in the league,
and by winning their next two contests, can place themselves in a good
position in the standing.
Veteran Returns
Saturday's game will mark the return of a veteran of Varsity football,
Cy. Manning. Cy. played for Varsity
teams when they were a force In the
Lower Mainland, and also played a
part in the return of the club to its
present status In the Vancouver and
District First Division. His presence
should be an aid to the team and a
decided handicap to the Cowan-
Dodson attackers.
Pete Frattinger will again support
the goal-posts, while McGill and Legg
will lounge to the right and left in
front of him. Kozoolin will hold down
the centre-half berth, and wiU be
flanked on the right by Manning and
on the; left by Costain. Stewart will
move up from his old position at
right-half to the right-wing. Playing
Inside to him will be the spark-plug
of the team, Laurie Todd. Otle Munday will be endeavoring to score goals
at centre-forward, and Dave Todd at
inside and Bud Cooke at outside left
should prove of great assistance in
this worthy effort. Hughie Smith will
be ready to substitute whenever occasion arises.
The Junior squad will have a reason for being inactive this week-end,
as the other Junior Alliance teams
will be engaged in a cup series In
which the Varsity team Is not entered.
Prfessor: "When do leaves begin to
turn?"
Junior: "The night before exams."

On Saturday
Varsity Senior "A" basketbaUers
hope to make lt two straight when
they take on Meralomas in a Burrard League^ encounter Saturday at
8:00 p.m. at V.A.C. gymnasium.
Tht Meralomas art a new entry
in Senior "A" basketball, but art
built around a number of veterans
from the old Crusader team. They
art stUl more or lest of an unknown
quantity, but art sure of putting up
a good tight.
The Varsity squad,-Judging by their
showing last Wedtnaday, art rounding into tht form which brought
them a Dominion Championship in
tht spring of '81.
Another Senior "A" gamt between
Province and V.A.C. is carded for
tht stmt evening, to that basketball
enthusiasts wUl get plenty of action
for their money.
TWO HOCKEY SQUADS:
LEAGUES UNCERTAIN
Every Monday night for some time
to come Varsity pueksters will practice on the Ice at the Forum from
six to seven o'clock. Art Schuman,
who stars at defense for the Westminster Club, has consented to coach
the players and will also help in
choosing the lineup. It has been
decided to enter only two teams, but
whether these two will be Junior
and Intermediate or Intermediate and
Commercial is still a subject of discussion. Thtrt art two other squads
in tht city who havt applied for
berths in the Commercial League and
if they are successful It means that
thtrt wUl bt places for two more
teams in the League.
Some of the dub members think
that this chance, if It comes, should
bt allowed to go by, In order that
a first-class sextette may be entered
in tht Junior League. Others claim
that the experience gained in Commercial company would be of use
in future seasons, but however matters come to pass, the first-string
players will likely don Intermediate
outfits. The Ice Hockey Club means
business this year, they say, and
are going to put forth every effort
in their power to turn out winning
aggregations. The various leagues get
under way some time in November.
U.B.C. Surprises
College Ruggers
Tht Blue and Gold gridders turned
tht tables on tht Vancouver College
aggregation at the CoUege Field on
Wednesday In their second Interscholastic Canadian Rugby game of
the season. Varsity tightened up in
tht third quarter to take the game,
18-8.
Canto tht first was uneventful except for a kick to tht deadline by
Moffat, and the period ended 1-0 for
Vanity.
The second quarter livened up with
Vancouver CoUege throwing two forward passes, ont from Wright to
Dalton and tht second one from
Wright to Ford. Tht latter resulted
in a touchdown, which went unconverted, leaving the tolly at 8-1
against U.B.C.
1 Tht third period saw tht turn of
tht gamt, with SneUing, Moffat, and
Holdtn showing their wares In Big
Four style. SneUing picked up a
blocked kick and ran over for a
touchdown which was converted,
making the count 7-5 for the Blue
and Gold.
Moffat's buck through for a touch
was the outstanding event in the final
canto, but no convert was scored. A
kick to the deadline for Varsity in
the dying moments of the game
closed the contest with the score at
18-8.
The lineup: Moffat, McLean, Haus-
er, SneUing, Crysdale, Akhurst,
Thompson, Lynovy, Bower, Whifta-
ktr, Upson.
Sophomore Girls
In Narrow Win
In the first Womens' Interclass
basketbaU contest, Arts '35 squeezed
out a 20-10 triumph over Arte '33.
The '35 ladies started with a rush
and ran up a big lead over the Senior women, but the '33 girls fought
right back, and gradually closed the
gap. The final quarter was a hard
fought period, and saw the '33 squad
just fail to catch the Sophomores.
The teams: Arts '35—Mamie McKee (6), Helen Joost (6), Emma
Parks (8), Jean Thomas (2), Margaret Cunningham.
Arts '33-Ruth Witbeck (11), Phyllis Boe (2), Frances Quail (4), Margaret Hall (2), Helen Ferguson, Molly Bardsley, Bea Sutton.

Seniors Slug
Sophs 2*1
In a hard fough game on the Upper Playing Field on Wednesday
noon, Arts '88 Inter-class "ten"
turned In a 2-1 victory over the Arts
'35 "eight." The Senior squad, composed of Tisdal Cup EngUsh Ruggers,
Senior "A" basketballers and two or
three soccer players, rushed the
Sophomores off their feet, and gave
them no chance to get going.
The Sophomores failed to take advantage of the tardiness of the Senior players, who started with five
men, but were the first to score after
the teams had aU their players out.
Their speedy centre-forward accepted a pass to beat Orme from close
in. However, the Senior forwards
began a bombardment of the '85 goal,
and tied the score through Ruttan
shortly after.
The second '33 goal came ln the
second half, when Art Mercer drove
the baU into the net from well out. It
seemed that the score was to be tied
when Arts '35 were given a penalty,
but Wolfe failed to beat Orme, and
Arts '33 managed to stave off the
Sophomore attacks and garner the
pouits.
Oames for next week are as follows:
October 31, Sc. '34 vs. Sc. '36, Upper playing field; Sc. '33 vs. Sc.

Meralomas
Varsity's Big Four entry will tangle
with their arch enemies, the Meralomas at Athletic Park on Saturday
afternoon at 2:30.
Despite the fact they took a beating in their previous encounter, the
Rah-Rah boys are going to go out
in full to set back the potential
champs.
Their task will be made harder as
their diminutive star, Doug Mclntyre,
wUl not be turning out.* However,
the team to a man are in fine fighting trim and with Rush and Hedreen
booting the ball fifty yards every

this gamt.
Some three or four years ago, Meralomas came to Ufe in their last
game and defeated Varsity who were
headed for the Upton Trophy. The
boys haven't forgotten this and
right now it is thtir chief ambition
to reverse the tables on Saturday so
a playoff will be essential.
