New Executive Plans
Arts-Aggie Function
"The Arts-Aggie Ball it going to
go over BIG!" Such is the determination of the committee in charge,
expressed by A.M.U.S. President Bill
Whimster on Monday.
Earl Hill's 11 piece orchestra will
agitate the feet and bosoms of the
attending Artsmen, Aggies and tributary females in the Hotel Vancouver
Crystal Ballroom, and perform gastronomic feats at a sit-down supper
in either the Oak Room or the main
dining room.
Mr. Whimster revealed yesterday to
the press that there would be entertainers present as IS entertainers,
muttering mysterious references to
Spanish Dancers and Radio Comics.
Pep Club, A.M.U.S. officers, and
class execuitves, besides the Aggie
Undergraduate Society, will distribute the tickets.
Norman DePoe, head of the new
Arts pep committee, is the innoeula-
tor responsible for the rash of placards and banners that appear on the
campus * today. He and his stalwart
henchmen had to be restrained by
force from painting a 20 foot sign
on the front elevation of the library.
"Paint; lovely, luscious, lustrous,
luminous, red paint!" exclaimed Mr.
DePoe in ecstacy. "I have at last
found the perfect medium to express
my polsonality!"
"Of course, the Aggie-Arts Ball is
going over," say the modest and retiring committeemen. "Seven days is
short notice, but look who's doing
Pep Meet Planned
By A.M.U.S. Thurs.
To Speak Tuesday
In addition to their other furious
activity, the Arts-Aggie Ball committee .have spared eleven and a half
minutes of their valuable time to arranging a Pep Meeting for Thursday
Anyone who does not feel impelled
to attend this superb entertainment
is urged to stay away, as difficulty is
expected in handling the crowd. Earl
Hill, whc is to dispense sibilant syn-
conpation at the Ball will be on hand.
"To sell the ducats to this "Biggest
and Best" ball, we have to have the
'Biggest and Best' pep meeting,"
President Whimster told Pep Leader
Tremaine yesterday, "Can you deliver
the goods?"
"Is that all you want?" responded
Leader Tremaine, "Of course we can.
We specialize in Bigger and Better
meetings, and this one will knock
your eye out."
"I don't know that we want to go
as far as that," hesitated the somewhat alarmed committee head. "I
may need my eyes for future reference."
So Thursday noon the Biggest and
Best Pep Meet of the year is assured.
Tentative arrangements are being
made for Mr. Whimster to sit in the
front row.
Dr. Willard Brewing, minister of
St. Andrews-Wesley United Church,
will speak on 'Youth in Russia and
Canfida" on Tuesday noon in Arts
100. He has just returned from a
short stay in Russia, and he endorses
heartily the ideals and trend of the
Russian experiment. This is an unusual opportunity for students to hear
an unusual man, a man who has
called fcrth a certain amount of controversial criticism for his attitude
toward this new country.
Ubyssey Learns
Life Stories Of
Arts Officers
Between bites oi breaded veal cutlets and chips with tomato ketchup,
Mr. William Whimster, newly elected
president of the Arts' Men's Undergraduate Society, narrated to the
Ubyssey the story of his past, present
and future.
"I entered the faculty of Agriculture in the fall   of 1929,"   he   said,  . , „ „        _    . 4 .  _
equipped with a studious air and a  ?f?«ue °< Nations Soc.ety,  and Dr.
pair of glasses, and became s■^cretary^ie^^!!1/!_^lSUJ^lel.lC!"
of my class.   Next year, overcoming
my natural modesty, I joined the Debating Society, the Players Club, and
became Class President."
Pausing for a sip of coffee (black,
no sugar) Mr. Whimster went on to
say that in 1931 he debated in Winnipeg against Manitoba, supported by
Mr. Earl Vance, and was elected
president of the Lit. and Scientific
on the student council. In 1932, due
to his being president of the A.M.S.,
figuring in the inter-collegiate debate here against the University of
Alberta, and going on tour with the
Spring Play, Mr. Whimster somehow
failed to get his degree. Momentarily piqued, he departed into the interior of the province, acquiring such
odd job3 as post office clerk, gold
digger, and etc.
This year, Mr. Whimster, in addition to being treasurer and business
manager of the Players' Club, is also
very enthusiastic over the brightening future of the Arts Undergrad Society, of which he is president,
The caustic Campus Crab spent his
first year in Varsity during the session of '23-'24. Returning again in
'33 he has since been extremely active
in Ubystey circles. His election to
the executive of the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society is a direct result of a recent bitter attack on the
inactivity of this body. Having thus
aroused this body of men he intends
to keep them enthused although as
yet he has no concrete plans for so
doing. Besides his Ubyssey work
Alan holds the position of Librarian
on the executive of Arts '36.
Recently elected treasurer of the
rejuvenated Arts Men's Undergraduate Society. Jack Shaneman, in his
second year, was treasurer of both
Arts '34 and the A.M.U.S. During
his third year he filled the same
positions. He was elected treasurer
of the Alma Mater Society in his
fourth year.
Institute Hears
Dr. S. Coleman
Dr. S. F. Coleman, president of
Reed Colleg.e Oregon, was the special speaker at the meeting of the Vancouver Institute on Saturday night.
The lecture was held in the Auditorium of U.B.C. in conjunction with
the Annual Peace Conference of the
flict of Interests in the Far East and
How it Affects America."
Dr. Coleman was born in Canada,
graduated from the University of Toronto, and is a brother of Dr. H. T. J.
Coleman of this university. He recently returned from Japan where
he gained much information on Pacific affairs,
Tracing the course of the race for
"security" in the recent years, the
speaker stressed the need for a sympathetic understanding of Japan's
problems, particularly her need for
expansion. The average Japanese
farm is two and one half acres in
area, and the population can no longer
exist on the food supplies of the little
island, sixty per cent of which is unfit for agriculture.
If it is unjust for a few powerful
individuals to control the wealth of
a nation while their fellow men
starve, is it not equally wrong for
a few powerful nations to control the
world's wealth while smaller nations
are in need, asked Dr. Coleman.
Japan today is in fear of air raids,
against which she is almost helpless.
Russian planes could arrive from
Vladivostok in a few hours: planes
from the U. S. aircraft carriers, now
practising in Alaskan waters, in less
than that. American tourists in Kobe

Treaties, to be effective, must be

To the accompaniment of deafening
cheers h.sting almost continually for
half an hour, the Ubyssey put over
the dead A.M.U.S. meeting Friday
noon when the members of its staff
started the elections rolling in the
proper spirit after the customary attempts at enthusiasm had died down.
Pubster Norman DePoe was acclaimed "dictator" of the Pep Committee or, the motion of George "Hen-
Hitler" Hill, ex-reporter. Georgie
has been faithful to the doctrine of
"no women in industry'' since his
childhood days and last year led the
"bigger and better beards" movement.
A rousing speech by George started
the landslide which swept our own
"Campus Crab" into the Secretary's
chair, with a two-thirds majority in
a triangular scrap. His statement
that "Alan Morley is the man who
isn't afraid to criticize" brought wild
cheers of approval from the crowd.
DePoe proposed the Pep Committee be formed to go out and put the
snickering science men, who had been
giggling over the lack of spirit in the
Artsmen, into their native gutter. Mr.
Hill loudly protested against having
five men on the committee, so two
were eliminated by vote and now he
and Don Ingham will be DePoe's lieutenants in the battle against the engineers.

Variety Features
Seven Informal
Skits For Grads
Musical  Society,  Players' Alumni, Science, Arts, Aggies,
Thealre night, last Friday night in
the Auditorium, informal in the true
Homecoming spirit, made no attempt
at reaching dramatic heights, nor at
being serious.
The highlight of the evening was
the Musical Society's presentation of
"Stage Souvenirs.' In this two-act
skit many of the old songs were revived and much old-fashioned comedy was aired again.
According ^o the Players' Club,
"Democracy Reaches New Heights."
Dave Fulton, Margaret Cunningham
and Hazel Merton attempted to prove
that even beneath the pleated shirt
of an fistocrat there may beat the
heart cf a plumber.
Arts '37 and '38 in a spirit of beautiful co-operation combined to give
the audience "Alibi" a rather risque i
playlet with Freth Edmonds and Norman Depoe bearing the torch of stardom.
The Players' Club Alumni presented a parlour comedy in one act, entitled "Grensal Green." Participators were Dr. Jack Nashe, Mary Darn-
borough, and Bill Rose.
Other playlets on the program included "Hired Help," the Aggie
ephoch, "1850 Operation" by the nurses, "What to Do About Nothing," by
Arts '35 and a Science skit.
Among the outstanding selections
played by Bert Kool and his Syn-
copaters were a violin solo. "Danny
Boy" and the "Rio Rita Medley."
Also assisting the program in a musical way was George Holland whose
accordion solo was rewarded with
much applause.
Two New Scholarships
Donated By Physician
The Comimttee in charge of the
Arts Ball, after a lengthy session
Monday afternoon, decided that Sciencemen may be admitted to the affair.
"And this," said the Campus Crab,
secretary of the committee, "is purely a diplomatic move in order to establish friendly relations. We are
convinced that no Science man has
two dollars in cash, nor will any be
able to obtain said sum before Friday evening."
A mysterious pep meeting has been
scheduled in Aggie 100 for today at
noon. Men only will be admitted.
Sciencemen are banned. Female gatecrashers will be severely dealt with.
Neither pepsters nor A.M.U.S. officials can be persuaded to divulge its
purpose. It is rumoured that the Discipline Committee may try to introduce a morality squad stool-pigeon,
and all possible precautions are being
taken to foil the attempt.
Dr. J. A. Wright Speaks Wednesday
As Feature Of Vocational Series
A veteran of many tennis wars and
a prominent member of the medical
profession, in the person of Dr. J. A.
Wright, will address students at
U.B.C, tomorrow noon in Arts 100.
"The Medical Profession" is the
subject chosen by the doctor, and he
will speak under the auspices of the
Alumni Committee on Vocaional
Dr. Wright is a native son of this
province; he was born at Kelson, and
received his early schooling at the
University School, Victoria, From
there he proceeded to Gonzaga University, Spokane. Returning to Canada, he went east to McGill—from

Each year two U. B. C. graduates
will be able to continue their academic research owing to the generosity
of Dr. Francis J Nicholson, well-
known local physician.
A fund has been set up to provide
two |500 scholarships which will be
awarded annually to graduates in
chemistry or engineering.
Applicants for a scholarship for
post-graduate, work in chemistry
must hold a B.A. or M.A. with honors In' Chemistry or a B.A.Sc. or
M.A.Sc.  in Chemical  Engineering.
Graduates in Geological or Mining
Engineering in possession of Bachelor's or Master's degrees shall be eligible for the second award which will
be granted annually for graduate
work in Geology.
Recipients must be graduates of
U.B.C, have British citizenship and
must not be older than 30 ot the time
of the award.
Preference will be given to native
born British Columbians. The payments will be made in either one or
two instalments and the student may
continue his work at U.B.C. or at
any other institution of learning
whose academic standing is sufficiently Inch to satisfy or be recognized
by the University of British Columbia.
The spirit of the endowment is to
aid those to whom financial help is
necessary or of material assistance in
furthering their studies.
Scholarship, ability, character and
health will be considered in making
the award.
An additional sum has been provided so that the first scholarships
may be presented at the conclusion of
the present session, In making application candidates must indicate the
course of study they undertake to
pursue and the institution in which
they propose to do their work.
Dr. Nicholson, the donor of this endowment, is a native son of B.C. He
graduated in Arts from Stanford and
in Medicine from McGill. He practiced medicine first in White Horse,
Yukon and after many years of successful service in Vancouver retired
to private life in 1927. He was a
school trustee from 1921 until 1926
serving as chairman of that board for
two years. During the Great War he
was a member of the Army Medical
WiU McGeer
Accept Debate?
The whole campus is watching with
interest the developments in the controversy between Prof. G. F. Drummond and G. G. "Gerry" McGeer,
K.C. These two specialists in Economics are at a difference over, the
issue of "National Credit."
Mr. McGeer has challenged Prof.
Drummond to a debate on whether
or not National Credit can bring
about recovery. The challenge appeared in a local paper last week.
Before accepting "Gerry's" challenge, Prof. Drummond wrote the
former asking him to clarify his
statements and define the term, "National Credit." The letter was a masterpiece of composition. In it Prof.
Drummond asked the prominent lawyer several leading questions which,
if answered, should show whether or
not Gerry knows what he ie talking
The debate, if it is held, should be
extremely interesting. It will be a
contest between the principles of Economics and one of the current deviations from those principles.
The University awaits with the
keenest anticipation this battle of
wits and oratory."
Professor Angus
Speaks Saturday
On World Peace
"When we look out on world affairs and the future, our hope should
be for all countries, not just for the
one in which wo are living," said
Professor Angus in opening his speech
on the subject, "Does the Preservation of Peace Require Sanctions?" at
the annual Peace Conference luncheon of the League of Nations Society
held on Saturday.
"There are four possible ways in
which the world may organize: first,
there is one great world state; second, we may "continue to have national states; third, there is a sort of
philosophical amity 'in which no state
is to attack because it has given its

That the student body of the faculty of
Arts and Sciences is a decayed, spiritless and
impotent conglomeration of individuals not
worthy of the title of an organization, is a fact
generally recognized by undergraduates of all
faculties alike. And the responsibility for this
condition rested chiefly with the members of
that supposedly venerable but actually senile
body known as the executive of the Arts Men's
Undergraduate Society.
The officers of this practically defunct so-
ciety, by virtue of the importance of the functions which they were originally intended to
perform, have been glorified in the constitution of the Alma Mater Society with the status
of "B" officers, although who they are and
what they do has always remained a hopeless
mystery to the average student. Compared to
other officers on the campus such as the president of the Players' Club and Musical Society,
and the "B" officers of the Publications Board,
they are indeed little better than a Sunday afternoon knitting circle as far as real accomp-

The   VAlku 5
By Nancy Miles
Etymological Dept.
Three beautiful new phrases have come
to our attention during the weekend. Along
with most columnists we take a hearty inter
est in new ways of saying old gags, which is
about all a columnist is good for anyway.
The first one is an expression admiration in
the superlative, so much admiration that words
fail in expressing it. The word in the instance
observed was applied to a radio singer, Gertrude Niesen, who lets the blues rip out under
an 180 bang, which is a coiffure and not the
noise a gun makes exclusively.
Her rendition was described by a technician
"She sure has got plenty of uh."
The second   phrase   is decriptive   of the
deadpan audience. It came out in a report of
an audition. This advertisement appeared in
the morning paper in New York:
"Wanted for part-time work 25 of the meanest, most cantankerous, orneriest, crabbiest,
sourest, evll-disposltioned men in the city."
Well, it's a big city, and the quota was filled by five o'clock that evening. Most of them,
and quite properly, cited their wives for reference, and the little woman must have backed them up pretty thoroughly.
The instructions to these new members of
industry were to witness a comedy production,
and "if you laugh—you're fired." Block and
Sully were supplying the comedy, and it looked like a tough piece of work for the jobholders.
But every man in the audience was ready
Jo die for dear old "Jobatlast" (also the wife
and kiddies) and no one cracked a smile. The
story has no climax. But the report of it
brought out our new word.
"Just a bunch of sourpusses", was the
phrase applied.
The third and last phrase come from O. O.
Mclntyre, who seems to occur with alarming
frequency in this part of the Tuesday paper.
Its a biological and   psychological   term,
lishment is concerned.
They seem, moreover, to have lived up to j which describes one's reaction to, for instance,
their traditions with the usual consistency this caf. coffee, orange finger nails, Sunday after-
year. For with the Arts Ball for which they' noons, overdue essays, and certain people we
are responsible, only one week away, they only wont',name.
The word is "The Ork Orks."
then took steps toward holding their annual
election of officers. How they expected to
arouse any interest in this election is known
no doubt to themselves, but not to anyone else,
for they gave no notice of it to the Ubyssey
until the issue which appeared last Friday
noon—the time when the election was to take
place. And how they expected the new executive to get under way and organize and make
a success of the Arts Ball all within one week
is certainly a riddle to put even the old Sphinx
in the shade.
As the students of the faculty of Arts seem
quite contented to lie in "slippered ease" while
Sciencemen hold them up to contempt and
dominate them, it seems rather futile to attempt to arouse them from their lethargy. But
if the Arts executive were once to break away
from its traditions and actually organke the
Arts students, endow them with some semblance of faculty pride, and put some spirit into
their activities, they would be doing the A.M.
U.S. and the University a great service.
However, with three such veteran sages
as an ex-president and an ex-treasurer of the
A.M.S. and the Campus Crab himself on the
new executive, we look for some really progressive action this year. It is up to this triumvirate to prove to the doubting students that
their teachings can be put into effect, and incidentally, that their offices are worthy of a
"B" rating.
Two members of the class of '35 will be the
first recipients of the Dr. F. J. Nicholson Scholarships. Dr. Nicholson has made a perpetual
gift to the province, for as long as there is a
University oi, British Columbia, two of its
graduates every year will be given a chance

Viewing With Alarm Dept.
It's a long time since we've viewed anything
with alarm, but at last there's scope. A slogan
is being voiced abroad, "Pep in the Arts faculty". Ork ork.
Pep is an insidious word, an abbreviation
for Perpetration of Emotional Psychology. It's
the ballyhoo which makes people lose their
reason, and do what the instigators demand. It
makes people do things that cool consideration would make unthinkable. »
It makes people go to war by means of
brass bands and "pep talks," it makes wars end
inconclusively, but not as often, it makes two
hundred kindly-disposed people, together with
three truly irate people, lynch a man.
It's alright for Sciencemen because they
haven't any consciences. But pep is a conscience anaesthetic, and when it regains consciousness it feels terribly ill.
It's not nice and besides we don't like it.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
After reading the sport editorials in
Friday's Ubyssey, I cannot resist replying to them so that at least some
of the student body may know a few
facts about a subject that has been
grossly misrepresented.
I will not bother to discuss the excerpt from the so-called Canyessey
for It is obviously written by some
unsportsmanlike grandstand quarterback who has not enough spunk to
sign his name to his statements.
On the otter hand, the sports editor of a publication is supposed to
know something about that of which
he is writing. In the first place, the
U.B.C. has entertained no ambitions
of entering a football team in the
Pacific Coast Conference, neither now
nor in the near future. If the aforementioned editor should Inquire further, he would find that colleges with
which we have scheduled games do
not Import players because it is not
their practice and because none of
them could afford to do it.
The writer goes on to explain the
general practice of commercialization
of sport as exemplified by some of
the larger institutions in the United
States. We are going to play American football but does that necessarily
mean that we must adopt the practices of some universities with which
we don't even intend to compete?
As regards coaches, the late Knute
Rockne never received more than
one-fifth of the salary mentioned and
Iver Moe is not being paid any salary
whatsoever by the Canadian Rugby
Club—money having been donated by
downtown business men for his remuneration. His expenses have been
paid for five trips up from Bellingham and the cost debited to the club's
profits from the first game.
Our learned sports editor then proceeds to contradict himself by denouncing the hiring of coaches after
he has bewailed the lack of ability
of a team to win; even the most ignorant sports fan knows the part a
coach plays in developing a team.
If one starts arguing about petty
money matters and school spirit, etc.,
the whole purpose of sports is lost.
Sports are sponsored by this University in order that you may develop
your bodies as well as your minds;
that you may learn to think quickly
in times of stress; and, that you may
learn to take the good with the bad
—to be a good sport. It is by intercollegiate competition that one meets
ones equal in interests, age, and ability. That these faculties may best
be devolped it has been the endeavor of the Athletic Executive this
year to obtain intercollegiate gam-os
not only that the competitors will
benefit, but also to develop that intangible spirit in the student body
which evidences itself at a thrilling
athletic encounter.
The student support and spirit at
games this year has improved rapidly
and the athletic executive have interpreted it to mean that the undergraduates do enjoy intercollegiate
rather than city contests. Therefore,

toward the English. It is his motive
to forward the nationalization of productive forces as opposed to industrialization. The National movement,
the speaker explained, was a fight for
the fundamental human rights, freedom of speech, idult suffrage, equality of man, free education and drastic labour reforms. It is the Nationalist hope to achieve their purpose by
non-violence, passive resistance, non-
co-operation, and civil disobedience.
In conclusion, the paper accused
Great Britain of denying Home Rule
to India because it was to her advantage to do so. John Dickinson, author
of "Government in India Under Bur-
eacracy" is quoted as saying, "Instead
of their own simple and rai ional mode
of dispensing justice, we have given
the Indians an obscure, complicated
and pedantic system of English laws."
Dominion status for India will be the
only insurance against bloodshed.

Speaks Saturday

This policy of sanctions would mean
if adopted, the complete reversal of
the present policy "of last minute
political opportunism."
Following Professor Angus, the Hon.
Newton Rowell spoke on the League
in general.
The afternoon session featured Cyril Chave and Miss E, Mathieson. Miss
Mathieson stated that war is inevitable, because of "the seeds of new
war left by war debts."
Mr. Chave replied that "there are
two inevitable results of war that
should result in It being outlawed:
first, a broken morale, and second, a
badly reduced standard of living."
Professor Soward then answered
questions that had been raised during the session. He quoted several
recent Investigations showing that
armament firms are trying to inspire
mutual fear among nations and thus
promote their sales. He also spoke
on the advantages of having Russia
as a member of the League, the pro-
League trend ln the United States,
Japan, and other significant factors.
After a short address by Mr. Parcy
Bengough, prominent representative
of Labor interests the session ended.

The Dynamite Express
Judging by the riot of sound that filtered into the bunk-
house, the Campbell River holiday had been a major success.
Strains of "Aye ban Swedish fallin'-bucker" mingled melodiously with "Home on the Range", and to the din was added the
ear-splitting "Yippee!" which is the war-cry of the homecoming
logger. Then the speeder with its tuneful crew racketed on
down the siding, and apart from a few scattered whoops in the
distance the night was quiet once more.
Jimmy-the-Vatchman, who had been
grumbling to himself on the other
side of the bunkhouse, addressed me
in a whisper not unlike the booming
of some gigantic beetle.
"Villiam," he said, "Villiam my
lad!   Iss you avake?"
I was very much awake ,and told
him so.
"And small vonder," Jimmy complained, his voice loaded with righteous indignation. "Such a pack of
night-owls all hflotlng together on a
speeder vould rouse up even Paul
Bunjan from his grave. The miracle
iss they don't jump the tracks some
night, and all get killed whilst they
iu under the influence."
Jimmy sighed noisily. His arms
were under his head, and his impressive bulk humped the blankets into a
minor mountain. "If it wasn't that
they have a good speedermen it vould
have happened long ago," he continued. "Good speedermen iss rare
howioevor, Villiam; take now that
old ripscallion Skyline Hagen for instance. On a Casey Jones, a trained
ape vould show just as much sense.
Nearly once he blew me up with his
Vague rumors of this escnpada had
already come to my ears, and the
chance of hearing Jimmy-the-Vatch-
man's version wis too good a one to
miss. So I made myself a smoke and
dropped back to listen while Jimmy,
cigarette glowing companionably in
the gloom, launched into his story.
"It wass a Sunday afternoon, and
theer wass three cases of dynamite
to go down to camp. I always had
a goot healthy regard for dynamite,
and the vay Skyline tossed the cases
around made me feel, if not outright
scared, very uncomfortable.
"'It won't go off Jimmy, you old
voman,' says Skyline. 'Except maybe
this case, because in it is some dynamite caps. You con ride on the trailer with the two full boxes, and me,
I'll keep this one hy me on the speeder.'
" 'If it goes off, I will be blown up
wherever it Iss,' I told him, and off
we vent down the runaround with
the trailer clacking along ahead of
the Casey Jones. I wa3s doing my
best to hold ths two boxes still so
they vouldn't jiggle, and looking
ahead steady too, so if there wass
anything on the grade Skyline might
maybe be able to stop us in time. We
vent awful slow though, and pretty
soon I began to get impatient, for
suppertime wasn't far away.
"'Skyline,' I said, 'vise as it iss to
be cautious, couldn't you perhaps
highball it just a little? We got those
small brown sausages with mashed-
up potatoes for supper in camp, and
I vouldn't like to miss them.'
"And right away, we started going
faster. Too fast almost, 1 began to
think, for the aaus wass bumpy and
dynamite iss no more to be depended
on than iss Skyline. Still, I thought
of the sausages, and kept my moulh
shut—tight. We wass past the run-
around now, where the flat ends and
the long hill starts. Swoosh we vent
over the top, and rattled on down the
slope. 1 knew for certain now that
we wass going very much too fast!
'"You issn't a demon driver out
breaking records,' I yelled over my
shoulder. 'You iss just Skyline Hagen taking in high explosives, and at
your age you ought to be more wise
ln the head.'
"Skyline didn't answer ma even a
word. He wass crouched out of sight
behind the canvas windbreak, like he
wass afraid lest the vind blow off
his big ears. And every second we
wass going faster. 'He iss only trying to scare me,' I said inside myself. 'Pretty soon now he will remember there Iss a brake, and begin to use it.' So I kept my head
to the front ond hung on to the dyn-
mite cases, with the bend at the bottom of the hill getting closer and
closer. 'At this speed, Skyline,' I
cried at last, 've vill hop the tracks
at the bend, and then where iss it
we vlll be?'
"Again he didn't make me an answer. 1 got to my knees and looked
around; and Tousan' Yevela . . there
wasn't any Skyline Hagen on the
speeder! 'Vay up the hill, wass a
figure like an overgrown monkey,
waff ing its arms and yelling. And
there wass I on the trailer, Villiam,
and it came to me all of a sudden
that my chances of eating little brown
sausages with mashed-up potatoes
again wassn't any so goot.
"There wass in my mind two voices.
both talking at me together. 'Hit
the breeze, Jimmy,' said one of them,

"'No, Jimmy,' said the other voice
in my head. 'Just because the Company is going to lose the best vatch-
man it ever had, iss that any reason
why it should lose also a new Casey
Jones? Climb back, Jimmy, and stop
the speeder!'
"We iss a people of big, svift impulses, us Danish folk. I began to
crawl back. Yes, for you it vould
have been easy enough, Villiam, for
you iss long and lean like a snake,
but for Big Jimmy, as fine and veil-
fed a figure of a man as ever vent
into the voots, not so simple. In the
open case of dynamite on the speeder
the box of caps wass dancing up and
down like mad. 'One pop Jimmy, and
you is veil-started for heafen.' I
thought, and swing from off the
trailer. Skyline says it wass just
loggers' luck and not skill, but anyhow, my feet hit the footboard and
in a minute I wass easing back on
the brake. I was still mopping the
sweat off from my face when Skyline came skipping down the grade.
"'By reason of your dumheaded-
ness,' I said to him, 1 wass almost
scattered all in little pieces in the
slashings. Vot made you jump off,
you unresponsible hyena?'
"'Jimmy, you is a big loon,' panted Skyline to be. 'I didn't jump, I
fell off on my head just after you
told me to go faster, and 1 watched
you highball away, scolding so loud
at me who wasn't there that not even
when I yelled at you would you look
Jimmy swung to the close of his
narrative with a grunt and a vehement shower of sparks from his cigarette-butt. "Sure, Villiam," he declared, "ven it comes to speedermen,
I vould much rather be wheeled by
even a fairly intelligent ape than any
one so unresponsible and so frivolous
in the head as that old riprobaste
Skyline Hagen!"

Immediately after the election, the

put over the Arts-Aggie ball. The
secretary states that it will be a success and that it will be colossal.
A pleasing touch of colour was

who presided. He wore a pretty little golfing ensemble with a red poppy on his chest and red sox, admirably set off by the plus-fours, to
He expressed his gratification at the
increased interest taken by the students In their affairs and remarked
that it was very encouraging to the
executive to have almost one-sixth of
the Artsmen present.
"It is very discouraging when the
executive has no support," he said,
in referring to the fact that only
thirty-one votes were cast in the elections last year.
When asked about tho whereabouts
of this executive, Mr, Kennedy replied that the question was a good
one, that two of the members had
not returned this year, nnd that he
wished to apologize for the third,
who had been unable to come.
He continued by saying that if the
students had not turned cut to vote.
Council would have appointed an executive or abolished the society and
changed the Arts-Aggie ball into a
University ball.
Before the elections proceeded, he
advised the audience to elect an executive that would have enough "determination either to force a turn-out
or abolish the business." In case any
dirt-digger might put an improper
construction on his words, he stated
that he was not reflecting upon the
ability of any previous executive.

In fivo closely-typed pages does

South Manchuria, granary of Asia,
he writes, has so warm a climate that
semi-tropical crops ranging from
strawberries to cotton can be grown.
Moreover, in spite of the fact that the
Chinese have not fertilized the land
for centuries, immense tracts of rice
lands have retained their natural fertility. On the other hand, 20 years of
intensive wheat cultivation in the
prairies of Canada have exhausted
about 30 percent of the natural plant
foods in the soil.
The reason for this difference, he
points out, lies perhaps in the rotating of crops in Manchuria, moisture

Senior Soccer Triumph
Over Politicians
Blue and Gold Boys Continue Unbeaten Way
Set Down Young Liberals 2-1 in Nice Display
Breaking their lengthy list of draws for which they have
become notorious in city soccer circles, and at the same time
maintaining their unbeaten record this year, Thunderbird soc-
cerment triumphed over the highly-tooted Vancouver Liberals
by the odd goal in three on Cambie Street Grounds last Satur
day before 5,000 spectators.
The win put Varsity within 2 points ♦""
of Columbia Hotel, present league-
leaders, and established them as the
only squad in the Vancouver and
District loop which stands a chance
to finish the first half of the season
in the initial slot with the Italian
Innkeepers, who have played a game
more than the Students.
Varsity Scores
Taking the field without their star
forward, Laurie Todd, who is still
nursing his ankle injury, the Thunderbirds indicated early that they
were out for business, as they scooped
down upon the Politicians' citadel
where Kozoolin, playing at centre,
missed scoring narrowly with a header on a pass from Irish en the right
wing. Varsity kept up their fast
rushes, but elongated Dixon relieved
the Liberals' anxiety by sending his
mates away on a counter-attack
which rerulted in Bunyan, their pivot
man, scoring on the 15th minute
from Dawson's pass, after he had
cleverly eluded the Sutherland-Dickson line of defence and whiffed the
pigskin past the helpless Greenwood.
The Liberals advantage was destined to be short-lived, however.
Stung by the* sudden reversal Varsity
fought back even more determinedly
than before. The intermediate trio
of Thurber, Wolfe, and Stewart assumed the offensive together with
the forwards, and the inevitable tying
marker came when after some pretty
combination Kozoolin slipped a short
pass to MacDougall who registered
with a beautiful drive from a decided angle.
Play alternated from end to end
till the half-way whistle with both
pairs of backs and the rival goalies
anticipating and clearing effectively.
The score at onange-time stood at 1-1.
Coach Charlie Hitchens had a word
to say to the boys during the rest
period, for they went right after the
bacon in the second stanza, swarming into the Politicians' part of the
field from the start, and missing only
by close margins. Then mtd-field exchanges ensued, in which the rival
half-lines showed to particular advantage.
.   Final Score 2-1
Suddenly on a fast break down the
fairway MacDougall took possession
of the ball, tricked his man and
shoved the sphere over the heads of
the opposition, Munday beating the
rest to it and depositing it in the
Liberals' goal. The Liberals appealed
for an off-side, but Referee Hunter
pointed to the centre spot.
This proved to be the winning tally,
for although both teams tried for a
further score, and tried desperately,
no such thing came, the defenders
on both sides seeing well to that. The
final score, then, read 2-1 for the
Outstanding on the battlefield was
Russell Stewart, regular left-half, but
the entire Varsity forward line deserves mention too. In fact every
man on the Students' line-up had a
hand in "the great victory."
For the Politicians Johnny Dale of
lacrosse fame and goalie Waters were
easily the best.
Varsity's team: Greenwood, goal;
Sutherland and Dickson, backs; Thurber, Wolfe and Stewart, halves; Irish,
Munday. Kozoolin, MacDougall. and
Todd (D), forwards; Max Legg, reserve.
Paul is the perennial captain of the
Senior Soccer team, this being his
third year in that capacity. He is
one of the smoothest players in the
league, consistently turning in a nice
game at halfback. It was one his
pass that Munday scored the winning
goal in Saturday's game.

The U.B.C. Women's Grass Hockey

Opposed by only ten men Varsity's

team, Ex-Britannia fought hard during the entire game and deserve
much credit for the spirit which they
displayed in the uneven battle.
Varsity's line-up, which included

have fielded this year and it is unfortunate that they did not meet the

many) will be drawn up for the
above engagement, four or five players only to be used at any time, but
with unlimited substitutions.
The Saints put up a swell display
against Westminster Royals, provincial champions, on the latter's
Arena last week and intend to give
the Students a lesson, but the men
of Templeton haveo ther ideas.
Thursday will decide the issue.
Anglicans Hold
Annual Meet
Under fair climatic conditions and
before a goodly number of spectators,
the Anglican Theological College held
its annual track meet Friday afternoon. The outstanding events were
the 880 and the mile events. The latter was won by Loat after a closely
contested finish with Humphrey. Both
these men, incidentally, are expected
to extend the Varsity pavement-
pounders in the Arts 30 road-race.
Loat won the Athletic championship
of the College with 19 points, but he
was forced to exert himself to the
limit to do so by Walkem and Ellis
who collected 14 points each.
At dinner that night, the prizes
were presented by Dr. A. F. Barss of
the University, and Dr. H. R. Trum-
pour of the College.
Detailed results of the meet follow:
100 yards-1 Walkem, 2 Ellis, 3 Addison.

Decidedly weak in their shooting and defence, the Varsity
Senior A hoopers were snowed under by a smartly combining
Province team by a 37-20 score on Saturday night. Perhaps the
novelty of playing before a big crowd in their own gym, and
the expectations of a dance after the game put the students off
their usual smooth play, for they certainly performed below

floor part of the time for Varsity,
but he showed a lack of practise. Bill
Swan was effective in his place.

Dance Successful
Willoughby was on the receiving
end of one of the few nice plays that
Varsity worked during the game to
make the score 35-17. Baskets by
Smith and Bardsley and a foul shot
bjr Bardsley ended the scoring of the
game at 37-20.
The dance after the game proved a
success and it is probable that Council will ratify more dances after the
Saturday games.
Bardsley was the best man on the
floor for either team, scoring 10 points
for his team. Wright also played a
nice game. "Jawn" Jurves went wild
to score 22 points for the Province
team while Red McDonnell performed
