No. 28
Playing Field To Be Repaired, No
Permanent Grandstands As Yet
"Get a Good Field Before Bothering About
A Grandstand"
Many Indulge In Flights of Oratory >
SCIENCEMAN
After an hour of super oratory by the most polished speakers
in the University, the students voted in favor of a motion that
read (in brief) that the Students Council be authorized to
borrow money to repair the present playing field in the stadium.
Due to tht poor reception that was<$>
received by the original motion, made
two weeks ago, that students council
be authorized to repair the field and
build a permanent grandstand, the
motion was not even considered.
Oratory
The next motion considered was one
favouring the repair of the playing
field and the erection of a temporary
grandstand to cost about $10,000.00. It
was during the discussion on this motion that the superb flights of oratory
were Indulged in.
William Whimster, former president
of tho Alma Mater .Society, moved tho
motion and spoke briefly for about 20
minutes on tht advantages of supporting tht plan. Ht recalled with
deep emotional fervor tht good old
days when the students had moved
tht University from Fairview to Point
Orey, built a gymnasium, and built
a playing field* Students were urged
to copy their ancestors and to show
that they, too, had "umph" by supporting the bill.
Against Grandstand
The next speaker, Sinclair, stated
that since the stadium field would
not be ready for a year and a half, it
would be useless to build tht grandstand. He was followed by John
Sumner, who, duet to his training as
a C.C.F. orator, held tha crowd spellbound, .even dragging in tht old lint
about "men, women and children."
He was against the motion, stating
that it would be poor policy to build
a temporary stadium if the students
did not think it was woith while to
build a permanent one.
Jack Shaneman, former treasurer of
the Alma Mater Society, spoke next
and showed the advantages of a Commerce course by quoting figures
galore on bond issues. He favoured
postponement of the erection of tht
grandstand till tht students had saved
the money to build it.
For Sport
Fred Bolton, Men's Athletics, was

Swedish Literature
Institute Subject
Spring Schedule b Changed
Professor P. A. Boving of the Department of Agronomy of the University, will lecture on "Swedish Literature,' at the Vancouver Institute
on Saturday evening in Arts 100 at
8:15.
Professor Boving is a graduate of
the University of Upsaia in Sweden,
and while a specialist in his own
chosen field of soil culture, is an acknowledged authcrity on Scandinavian art and literature, both classic
and modern.
Schedule Changed
In the schedule of Institute lectures
as originally drafted, Saturday evening's address was to have been given
by Dr. H. M. Cassidy, the recently
appointed Provincial Director of Social Welfare. Dr. Cassidy's address,
which will largely deal with health
Insurance, and other aspects of the
Provincial Government's social program, cannot with propriety be given
until after announcement of these
plans has been made to the Legislature. They cannot be discussed wiht
freedom by an official of the Government until these projects have been
outlined by tho responsible minister.
For these reasons, Dr. Cassidy has
requested postponement of his Insti-
tue lecture, and Professor Boving,
whose lecture was scheduled for
March 16, has kindly consented to
exchange dates.
The chair will be taken by the Institute's president, Mr. George E.
Winter.

Many matters of Interest were dis
cussed at the weekly Council meeting
on Monday.
The President of W.U.S. caused considerable discussion on the forthcoming Co-Ed. Certain members were
decidedly against having tht Ball in
two rooms but eventually succumbed
to the very logical argument that no
other place was available excepting
the ballrooms of the Hotel Vancouver.
Council was also unanimously In
favor of the W.U.S. drawing up a definite constitution. A third ruling to
pass stated that the Vice-President of
the W.U.S. must be a Junior.
The president of L.S.E. presented
the revised budget of the Parliment-
ary Forum. Since tht cancellation of
the trip to Edmonton, the Forum proposes a series of debates with American Universities. These Include tht
Universities of Washington, Oregon,
Southern California and Stanford.
The budget for these debates amounts
tones.
The Athletic President had an extensive sport program. In Senior A
Basketball, the team has four more
games to play before the final playoffs. Permission was granted to the
Swimming Club to travel to Seattle
on Feb. 9 to compete against the University of Washington, but no budget
was allowed. A S25 guarantee was
allowed the Hockey team for the Saturday game against Washington. Also
the Junior Canadian Rugby Club is to
be permitted to play one game a
week.
Dates for the Science Ball and the
Arts '38 Class-party were again
changed. Sciencemen will celebrate
in Commodore on Fob. Ii.

Co-eds To Dress As Farmers
Co-eds hi sun-bonnets, overalls and
aprons will trip the light fantastic
for three rustic hours on Tuesday
evening when the gym becomes a
temporary barn for the annual W.U.S.
party.
i Decorations aro to be in keeping
With the barnyard motif, Horsecol-
lara, sunflowers and scarecrows will
brighten the walls, and basketball
players will sweep hay off the floor
for some weeks. A hill-billy orchestra has been engaged, ar.a square
dances and medleys are to be Introduced. Skits will be presented with
characteristic Jinxlan perfection, and
it is hoped, received with the usual
generous blindness. Prizes will be
•warded for the most original costume, the most beautiful, tht funniest, and the best couple.
Refreshments will be provided, and
additional purchases of lemonade
(pink) may be made for one cent
(cash). Fortune-tellers will also offer their services for one cent per
fortune.
No Men
Gentlemen will definitely not be
{permitted into or within the vicinity
of the barn. Hi Jinx is a strictly coed function, superior to all other
forms of entertainment, and as males
have learned to their shame and confusion, intruders are resented.
Hi Jinx will swing into action
promptly at 7:30 and the program
should be completed by 10:30. Admission is to be twenty-five cents
per head and no reduction will be
made for children over eight weeks.
Quests are asked to hitch their horses
outside.
"Opportunities in the Field of Public Utilities", was the subject of Mr.
E. H. Adams, comptroller of the B.C
E.R., who was the guest speaker this
week in the .series of Vocational
Guidance lecture* sponsored by the
Alumni.
Mr. Adams started his talk by comparing opportunities for employment
and advancement in his own youth
and at the present time. Today it
is more a matter of finding any job
than of trying for a particular one.
He cited his own record as an ex-
amle of what could be done. He was
born in a small country town in Ireland, not that thai has any particular
significance, he says, and though he
had not had a university education,
he wrote an examination for the
civil service and became a clerk.
Feeling that he would like to enter
commerce, he got a job later with
an electrical house in England. In
the employ of the B.C.E.R. he was
successively clerk, cashier, accountant, chief accountant, staff auditor
and finally comptroller.
Chances
In discussing chances for employment with his company, Mr. Adams
stated that ln hiu opinion, the commercial deportments, such as those
of the Comptroller, the Solicitor, of
Publicity, Industry and Merchandise
were best suited to Art? students
rather than the Engineering Departments where technical knowledge Is
required. There is still room, he said,
since good men are so rare that the
Company often has to go outside its
staff to obtain men to fill certain
positions. He advises students to
start at the bottom instead of expecting their degree to give them a position in the middle.
Essentials
The essentials of success," he said,
are courage, ambition, determination,
leadership and knowledge. Many men
who have a superlative knowledge
of their work fail of success because
of a noticeable lack of one of these
qualities.
As general advice to students wishing to get along, he suggested that
they "get in with the boss'  by show-
wait there until the close of the lee
ture.   All Institute lectures are freeing him they are trying and by mak
to the public. ing an impression on him.
"Awful Acts" To
Feature Pep Meet
As a culmination to the publicity
campaign for thc Husky-Thunderbird
Hockey game, the Pep Club has
signed up Jack Emerson and a fifteen piece band for the pep meet Friday. There will also be 'The Awful
Acts," interrupting hte program, an
all star aggregation of local "talent."
The club has received considerable
downtown support in the publicity
campaign. Jack Paul, a Scienceman
who was formerly artist for T. Eaton's, prepared a poster which was
111 h o g r a p hed at Shaw- Jellett's
through the aid of a Pen Club Alumnus. The club worked far into Wednesday morning backing the posters
with card, and had them distributed
by 9 a.m. Wednesday.
The slogan for the campaign grew
This Year's Play has Realism for its Keynote
Miss Somerset Has Had a Lot of Dramatic Experience
Miss Dorothy Somerset, who is to direct the Players' Club
in the spring play, Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler," is one of the best-
trained and best-liked directors the club ha sever had.
Her success last year with "Caesar and Cleopatra" will be
remembered by all who saw the play, and she has also produced
notable plays for the Little Theatre, "Tobias and the Angel,"
the most recent, being especially praised for its scenic and lighting effects.

Ten Bucks Collected
To Help Flooded Area
Publications Board Sponsors Relief Campaign
Yesterday noon in the quad, two beautiful damsels solicited appealingly for farmers in the flooded areas of the Fraser
valley. Following a suggestion of Dr. Sedgewicks', the staff of
the Ubyssey sponsored a drive to aid the "flooded farmers at
Chiliwack" as the Pub ballywho-er put it.
As the students poured out of the Alma Mater meeting,
like soda water from a siphon, these damsels played upon their
heart-strings and wrung the sum of ten dollars out of them, in
everything from nickels to dollars. This sum, when averaged
among the students at Varsity, shows a contribution of $.0066%
per student per annum perhaps.
NOTICE
The flood relief fund is open for
another week. Every rtudent should
contribute a dime. It will show that
the University can be public spirited
and at the same time be good publicity for the University.

Dr. Taylor, who has been substituting for Dr. W. A. Carrothers as
lecturer in economics for the past
year, will leavw the University at the
conclusion of the present session. He
has had a brilliant career, graduating at Reed College, Portland, and
at the University of Hawaii. The
announcement that Dr. Taylor had
been granted ills Ph.D. from the University of California was made last
month.
Japanese Garden
It was reported at the Board meeting that construction of the Japanese lantern and garden, presented to
the University by the Japan Society
and the Japan Association of Vancouver, represented by the Japanese
Consul, is under way.
The lantern which is to be set
amid the botanical garden:, was presented in recognition of services rendered by Dr. Inazo Nitobe in the
cause of international goodwill. A
suitable Inscription for the lantern
has been decided upon by the Board
and the Japanese Consul, Mr. To Is-
hil.
Damage Discussed
The damage done to thc University
grounds and buildings by the storm
was also discussed. Although it is
not yet known what the extent of
the alterations necessary will be, it
is not expected that they will be as
serious as was first thought. Thr
sewage system of the University, especially between the library and the
theological colleges has been badly
disorganized, however, and considerable cost will bo incurred hi repairing it.
The Board commended highly the
work of Mr. Lee, building superintendent, and his mechanical staff during the emergency, it was reported.
The work of students, who under
Mr. Alan Morley, assisted in saving
the library from damage, was also
commended.
Research Work Praised
The Governors also glvo their praise
| of the splendid research work being
done by Professor Thorlief Larsen of
the English Department, into the life
and works of George Peele, Elizabethan dramatist . Professor Larsen
has contributed numerous articles on
the dramatist to modern Philology
and other notable publications. President Klinck personally commended
this and other private research work
which is being done by many members of thc faculty.

and for the best pair. Don't forget
your pennies for pink lemonade!
The executive are drawing up a
constitution, which will be presented
to the Society at the next meeting.
Realism
The university play thb year, however, will be of quite a different type,
with realism for its key-note. Realism, because it depend* on acting
and acting alone, is the hardest thing
in tht world to "get across" to an
audience, and Miss Somerset realizes
that the Players' Club is facing a difficult task. However, she feels that
there is exceptional acting ability in
the club this year and that a very
creditable performance csn be produced. Tht greatness of the play
will make it wonderful training for
those taking part.
Experienced
Miss Somerset is well qualified to
be a judge of Ibsen, bhe studied in
London at two of England's best-
known dramatic schools, and gained
practical experience working and observing at a commercial theatre
among Mich stage celebrities as Helena Packard, the wifa of Cedric
Hardwick. Among the plays in which
Miss Somerset has acted was Ibsen's
"Tht Pillars of Society."
Work on "Hedda Gabler" is now
going rapidly ahead, and on Saturday

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1,1935
THE ALMA MATER MEETING
Yesterday's Alma Mater meeting was an illustration of the effect of enlightened student
opinion. If Council always took the pains to
present to the students beforehand all the
pros and cons of the question which they wished to consider at an Alma Mater meeting, the
decisions reached at those meetings would be
much wiser and would represent more nearly
the actual desires of the voters.
With no previous opportunity to think a
matter over for themselves the students are at
the mercy of such accomplished orators as Mr.
William Whimster and others, and are prone
to base their decision on the momentary eloquence and emotional appeal of these speakers
rather than on an unbiased analysis of the
actual facts of the situation.
Council is however to be censored for its
action in presenting the alternative of a
temporary grandstand without first giving the
students any indication of its intention. If an
announcement of this alternative had been
made in Tuesday's Ubyssey, those present at
the meeting could have formed opinions on it
during the intervening two days, and hence
voted on it and discussed it more intelligently.
PUBLIC SPEAKING COURSE
In today's issue is published an announcement by John Sumner, president of the L.S.E.,
of the institution of a course in public speaking on the campus.
This is a course which should really form
a part of the regular university curriculum,
but since there is apparently no possibility of
instituting it as such at the present time, the
next best thing is to organize it as a student
activity. Ability to speak fluently and forcefully before a body of people is admittedly one
of the best assets which a person can possess in
life, and inasmuch as our present educational
system ignores this fact entirely, it is failing
to fulfill its mission as the trainer of our future
citizens.
In a university of this size there should be
sufficient students who desire training in this
art to make the proposed classes a success. It
is up to these students to show their appreciation of the efforts of the L.S.E. president, and
the speakers who have volunteered their services for the course by registering, and turning
out consistenly for the classes offered.
FLOOD RELIEF
Yesterday the students led by Dr. Sedgewick and (modesty makes us put it in brackets, the Publications Board) showed that they
can be interested in outside events which do
not concern the University. They also showed
that they not only feel sympathy for those people who are now homeless, having lost everything in the recent floods, but can reach into
their pockets to help them. There was very
little time in which to collect money, there had
been absolutely no previous advertising, yet in
spite of that ten dollars was collected in the
quarter of an hour after the Alma Mater meeting. Ten dollars may not at first sound a very

Paging Mr. Lee for a start.
How about moving the clock in the Auditorium down to the Kaf, Mr. Building Superintendent?
The clock was a most excellent idea of the
Grads who donated it, and the new doors on
the Auditorium seem to be an improvement,
but when the two are considered together, the
result is unfortunate.
What is the use of a clock where no one can
see it?
When we have a clock that ia not being used, why not put it in the Kaf where we need
one badly?
The permission of the donors should be easily secured for the change when the circumstances are explained to them.
At present it is of no earthly use to anyone
except Mr. Home, who can step into the gallery and note the time when he feels so inclined. And they tell me he has a watch alt
ready.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to find
that the Alma Mater meeting actually displayed a considerable amount of intelligence. There
is hope for us yet.
Not being in attendance myself, except to
register my vote on the right side at the conclusion of the meeting, I do not know if my
colleague Mr. Shaneman drew your attention
to three rather surprising facts which we discovered a few days ago.
At ur present rate of income, if we had
passed the bond issue for $40,000 we would
have paid it off in about 15 years. Total cost,
$71,000. Result, one stadium at a cost of twice
its value.
If we saved and invested the money, we
would have $36,000 in six years at a total cost
of $30,000.
If we had enough self-denial to save it for
the 15 years that the bond issue would have
taken to discharge, we would have had over
$100,000 invested at a total cost of $70,000 odd.
If our campus legislators are trying to gain
intelligent experience in government, the example of some of our municipal, provincial, and
dominion financiers might indicate a lesson to
be learned from this elementary arithmetic.
There are some very old books in the library, in which certain marginal notes by readers who possessed them in the eighteenth century add to their value.
There is at present a number of sap-headed
peanut-brained undergraduate piffle-mongers
infesting the library who imagine their platitudinous addle-pated comments are worthy to
rank along with those of their long past annotating kin.
They are not.
They possess neither present interest nor
historical value.
These scribbling apes make asses of themselves and annoy their more cultured fellow
students by defacing valuable books with inane observations that provide an accurate index of their mental poverty.
Polite requests bear no weight with this
pestiferous type of moron.
They should have their rear elevations paddled with a shingle. It would be a punishment
appropriate to their mental development.
We will be having another A.M.U.S. meeting very soon.
Three projects so far suggested by the executive for action by the society have fallen
through, one from opposition by the faculty,
one through the egotism of the Sciencemen,
and one through the disapproval of the Council.
A fourth now in the air is the furnishing of
the Arts Men's Common Room. Fortunately no
one can object to us trying to put a little ase,
comfort and decency in the lives of a number
of very uncomfortably housed Artsmen.
Let's put it over. We can do it.
Class of '38 party postponed, due
to Faculty Committee decision that
dance could not be held on Wednesday. Dance will probably be held on
Feb. 22.

FOREST CLUB
The meeting was addressed by Mr.
F. A. McDonald, Assistant District
Forester, his subject was "Measurement of Fire Hazard."
Fire hazard is measured by the moisture corttent at individual sticks,
which method is found to give results indicative of general conditions
in the forest From 8 a.m. until 11
a.m. the drying is most rapid, and
the moisture content at 11 a.m. gives
a satisfactory indication of conditions
for the rest of the day.
During the past fire season studies
were made at various points in the
district and it was found that conditions varied greatly, with similarity,
of course, between neighboring points.
It is planned to use the "sticks" experimentally for another season be-
fre deciding on a definite policy. The
greatest advantage of the "hazard
stick" is that it adds together all the
weather facors, wihout giving special
weight to any one factor.

The Drama Festival entry is "A
Moment of Darkness." which was
perhaps the most efficient of this
year's Christmas plays. There are
two changes in the original cast: Vivian Hod replaces Florence Skitch as
"Tess," a sthc latter has been ill and
cannot take the part. Ruth Armi-

SWEEPINGS
Aggie Upper Classmen are sincerely trying to draw the lower years
into student activities, but they are
balked by the extraordinary inertia
of most of the Freshmen. In an effort to overcoma this inertia, the executive has placed hi the hands of
the lower years, responsibility for the
arrangements of the impending Aggie Pep Meeting. It is now up to the
Frosh. They at least cannot accuse
the seniors of hogging the limelight.
What Aggies Art Saying
Phil West: "He's a regular pain in
the neck."
• •   •
Jack Bowen: "I can't work any
more this afternoon. I've got to go
home and read the funnies."
• •  •
Rod MacRae: "Listen here, Cornish;
you've got too much yap'"
• *   •
Fred Salisbury: "A lot of HARD
cider went West last ween.'
High Advtnturt
Wallowing around in tht dusty
body of tht campus garbage truck,
three Aggies clung grimly to tht
gymnasium piano, valiantly trying to
protect it from complete destruction
as the unwieldly vehicle jolted and
bumped its way to the rear of the
Arts building and then to the gymnasium. The piano was returned to
Its habitual resting place after almost
two week's sojourn in the Vocational
Buildings, where it was used for the
Aggie Party. Intoxicated with the
speed and excitement of the truck's
headlong career. Phil West waved at
a co-ed as he passed the library. Gordon Stead peered cautiously from the
window of the Musical Society Room
as the lumbering vehicle roared
around the rear of the Auditorium
and jumped the curb into the Quad.
Here, thirty-nine chairs were unloaded and placed In tha basement of
the Arts building, and the truck proceeded on the Gymnasium, a distance
of about 50,000 jolts. Some difficulty
was experienced in getting the piano
into the gym. Cherub Cornish tugged
desperately at one end of the instrument, but was unable to budge it.
"Eat more porridge," advised the
truck driver, chuckling with deep
amusement.
Our three heroes, on comparing
notes, found that each had remarked
something strangely familiar about
the sensations he underwent during
the wild ride. They were puzzled
until they remembered that our
campus garbage truck is of the same
vintage as tha University busses, and
consequently   has  a  similar   "riding
quality."

THE UBYSSEY
Correspondence
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Recently I have been approached
regarding the possibility of Inaugurating a class hi public speaking
for those who, for some reason, do
not feel that the Parliamentary Forum offers them the necessary training. In view of these requests and
of the letters which have appeared
in the columns of the Ubyssey I am
organizing a class, or classes, in public speaking.
Dean M. L, Bollert and Prof. J. F.
Day have kindly consented to give
of their time to Instruct one or two
of these classes. Three of the senior
members of tht Parliamentary Forum have also offered their services
as instructors.
In order that these classes may be
a success I am requesting all who
wslh to enter to register at the Council Office within tht next week. Those
who register must be prepared to
attend all classes that are called. I
am requiring registration and continuous attendance because wt cannot ask either members of the Faculty or members of the Forum to
waste their tune taking intermittent
cissies of three cr four.
If enough students register within
tha next week we will start the classes at soon as possible. Tht wholt
matter is left in tht hands of thost
who wish such training ln public
speaking.
Yours sincerely,
John Sumner, Pros.

MONTREAL
Established 1817
WEST POINT GREY BRANCH
Trimble and Tenth Avenue West
A. B. MOORE, Manager
Dr. Coleman gave an informal talk
on the development of philosophy
during the last fifty years, based
chiefly on his own personal experiences, at the annual banquet of the
Philosophy Club last Tuesday evening at the "Cat and Parrot".
The speaker said that philosophy
is a growing science, which has been
retarded considerably from becoming
too systematic because of the individualistic trend in men's thinking,
and of which reason and a genuine
search for Truth are the bases.
The development of psychology,
which is but an off-shoot of the
mother philosophy, he affirmed, can
be traced through the schools of
Structuralism, ind then tlirough tht
influence of physics and physiology
to Functionalism. and finally to Behaviorism.
Evolution
Tht theory of evolution has profoundly influenced both psychology
and philosophy and tht history of
tht mind hat widened \he scope of
each. Tht search for Reality has ltd
to tht modern schools of fsycho-an
alysis and Pragmatism. Pragmatism
is above all the philosophy of youth,
making activity and actual expert
tnct tht means to, and tht test of,
Truth, which ia denied in any absolute form, according to Dr. Coleman.
Philosophy and psychology have
moved rapidly and tht question is—
are they getting anywhere? "Many
of the new ideas," he said, "art but
re-statements of the old, as the new
realism is but the old appeal to the
intellect."
Letters Club Learns About
Art In The Modern Theatre
"Art in the Modern Theatre" was
the subject of the paper presented
to the Letters Club by Margaret
Palmer on Tuesday evening, when
the Club met at the home ot Mrs.
L. J. Ladner.
Miss Palmer defined several kinds
of realism which have been promin
ent In stage decoration, noting particularly the great contribution of Rein
hardt in his development of stylized
realism.
The tendecy of stage decoration is
definitely toward expressionism, declared Miss Palmer. 33vural Americans have macla outstanding contri-
1 butions in this art, Craig, Appia,
Robert Edmond Jones and Norman
Bel-Geddes. Each of these men have
developed some arpect of expressionism, Appia ha3 concerned himself
with stylism, Craig with Symbolism.

New Course In
Public Speaking
May Be Started
To supplement the already excellent work of the Parliamentary Forum, the executive of this organization intends to sponsor a course in
public speaking. Student.* interested
are asked to register in the Council
Office within  the next  vveek.
Dean M. L. Bollert f.nd Prof. J.
F. Day have consented to assist in
instructing these classes. Also senior
members of the Forum will act as
instructors. However the success of
this venture will depend entirely upon
prompt and regular attendance at the
classes.
Playing Field
To Be Repaired
(Continued from Page 1)
the next speaker. Fred branded himself as an engineer, not 'an orator or
a commerce man. He favoured the
bill, stating that it would help intercollegiate sport.
J. Gould, sophomore member of the
Parliamentary Forum, and seconder
of Whimster's motion, spoke very fervently next. Bobby Gaul and Jean
Thomas, women's athletic representative, also spoke.
The motion was defeated and the
motion that the field be repaired
moved. It was passed with only three
dissenters. Two other motions providing the necessary authorization for
student's council to go ahead were
moved and passed.
Those that think that in time daring co-eds will smoke on the campus,
(in public we mean) should see what
1924 reformers worried about. In the
October 16 issue a letter appeared
containing these protests against immorality. "Is courtesy lacking in our
university? Can the 10-called men
not wait to reach tht outer air or
ltas-frtquented corridors before pro-
durlng "cigi" and disenfectlng the!
place?" "Perfuming tht air with
their cabbages." "Do they think it
manly?"
Smoking "Could make an old man
of mt qulcktr than anything else."
"Why, to look at them one can ate
their fingers trembling 'referring to
smokers!) their nerves all shot to
pieces."
In conclusion tht evangelist thunders forth, "I wonder if tht girls
really do respect those cads and stink
weeds!"
This, of course, doesn't go unchallenged, even in those puritannlcal
days. Tht next issue lo filled with
protests, but one, who signs himself
"Wrigley," in paraphrase of tht reformer's name, descries another deplorable habit among the men. "Are
the so-called men of the university
becoming effeminate? Has the obnoxious habit of wearing spats taken
such a hold that they cannot refrain
from wearing them even in the sacred precincts of the university?"
He wrings this confession from one
of the addicts, "the habit was so
strong on him that he must wear his
habitual spaf even in bed." Of course
some one exclaims, "See their knees
all trembling."
Did someone say something about
class draws? The twenty-fourers
played "Whodja Get," as explained
to the Freshmen and Freshettes ln
the Ubyssey. "All that is necessary
is to have the majority of the class
vote for the class draw. A day is
set, and some influential person takes
a co-ed's name from a hat. If she
is a dumbell the men pasp until a
man's name is drawn from another
hat. Then there is a sigh of relief
from all but one man. He tries t
smile, the dumbell blushes."
"Groups of people stand in the halls
chatting pleasantly until someone
comes up behind them and shouts,
"Whodja' get.' The phyers are not
allowed to run away."
"Any member of the Students'
Council is said to ha/e cooked the
draw when lie or she is allotted to
the best looking member of the opposite sex in the class. This may be
accomplished by threatening to have
the class party called eff unless he
or she gets the person desired."
"Any person may cooK the draw
by offering a reward of $25 to the
person taking the names out of the
hat."
"Losers in the game arc numerous.
If a man living in New Westminster
draws a girl living in West Vancouver, he is judged a lower and must
try to make arrangements for a friend
to put him up for the night. If Miss
Short draws Mr. Long she is a serious loser. If Miss Danceuse draws
Mr. I. Sittemount she may feign illness on the evening of thv dance but
this is considered as cheating."
"Professor F. C. B. Wood has Unearthed the following text for the
clays of strain, and this should help
the students bear up under the strain.
"For what I am about to receive,
Lord  make  me truly  thankful."

Tht hall waa decorated in red and

were distributed during tht evening.
Unfortunately, due to the bumptiousness of several gentlemen who insisted on jumping up and down on tht
balloons, few survived tht party.
Tht supper was served in tht

was very elegant, although parsley

Once upon a time, there were three
monks. Having tried various methods of showing their austerity, they
finally decided to become hermits,
and furthermore1, to takr a vow of
silence, using only a sort of sign
language.
Every five or six year.?, they would
leave their muontalrf cave and go to
town to get a few supplies. On one
of these trips .about ten years after
their vow, they made one of these
trips. On this occasion, there was a
circus in town, and tho management
had a horse dancing in the main
street. The three hermits saw, and
returned to their cave.
One of the three began to get thin
and nervous, with great dark circles
under his eyes. When, about three
years later, he was wasted away to
a mere shadow of his former self, he
could not withstand the strain, and
blurted out: "My, but that horse could
dance!"
* *   •
All went well for a month or two,
when another of the three began to
become Irritable. He slowly lost
weight, and he became sc nervous
tha the could hardly use the sign
language, because his hands shook.
After a period of about four years
had elapsed, lie gave a deep sign, and
replied, "You're right. That horse
COULD dance!"
The third monk, who had heretofore, been the happiest cf the three,
now began to look worried. He began to perform his work in a listless
manner; he also lost weight. One day
about six years later, he suddenly
flew into a rage, and began to pack
up his clothes. This startled the
other two into speech. They asked:
"What's wrong? What are you going
to do?"
The answer came: "I'm going home.
I'm  sick  of  all   this   damn   chatter
about horses!"

Modern Disillusionment
Revealed In literature
"There has been a temptation in
tht part twenty years to become disillusioned, then cynical. Thla cynicism, which may be logical or sentimental, has all found its way into
contemporary literature. It is an
outcome of tht war, which left tht
world a fearful tangle to tht last generation, an unintelligible chaos to
the present generation." With this
introduction, Professor Dilworth began his "Readings In Contemporary
Poetry," in Arta 100, at noon oa
Tuesday.
IMfUhMtsa
Tht speaker stated that people art
Inclined to be shocked at disillusionment. He read W. W. Gibson's "Lament," which keenly expressed thla
idea.
Thla mood of doubt and disillusion
did not pass quickly. Several years
later, T. S. Eliot's "Waste Land"
voiced the cynicism that was then
popular. "This poem is high art,
noble thinking, and magnificient history, whether you like it or not."
The young American poet, Archibald MacLeish, asked to write an ode
for convocation, took the subject of
Odysseus who, in the land of death,
wished to return to Ithaca. A friend
advised him: "No, there is no way
back, only the v/ay on. Sail to a
new land, and start afresh. No one
here will prevent you."
T. S. Eliot
The speaker closed with some of
the shorter poems of T. S. Eliot—
the poet of the later years, whom
many of us cannot follow. He has
come from the waste land to fulness
of life, and sincerely believes that
there is something working with
man, and helping him.

Tomorrow sees the resumption of the playing schedule of

an opportunity to see what the younger generation can do
against the older. For those who haven't yet fathomed the
meaning of the opening sentence, Varsity's English ruggers will
meet the Occasionals at three o'clock in the feature match at
Brocton Point.

Better Take Your Compasses
Whoever wins Saturday's game will
occupy second place in the battle for
premier honours in the league. North
Shore All-Blacks are in the top position with only a drawn game with
Varsity against them: Occasionals
now hold down the second place with
a loss on their tally (sheet: and Varsity art in the third slot with a loss
and a draw. So it will be a battle
royal, with each team trying to down
the other and some good rugby should
be seen,
Occasionals Have Few Forwards
Here is some of tho dope on"th*e
game. Occasionals have not played
aa a team since December the eighth
and it was not until the beginning
ot this week that they have made
any attempt to get back Into shape.
Varsity, on the other hand, with a
McKechnie Cup game played on January 12, have only had a month's layoff. The rest should have done them
good, and given them that extra
keenness to get back intu the game
and to score a win. With only nine
forwards on their books, tht Occasionals are having a little difficulty
in fielding eight of them, so it may
just be possible that spectators will
see good back-field men performing
in the scrum. It is a different picture with Varsity. The difficulty is
almost one of deciding which forwards to teave on the sidelines.
Bird Five-eighths
Students who follow the game and
have an Interes: in its finer points,
will have an opportunity to see an
innovation as far as Vanity's play is
concerned. Captain Roxborough,
should the score permi*, will experiment. Hitherto Varsity's team has
concerned itself with learning the
basic principles of the game and in
corporating them in their play with
machine-like precision. On Saturday,
however, one of the finer points will
be Introduced. Roxborough will
change into inside three-quarter,
with Bird at five-eights ond Roberts
moving out to the wing. In this position, Roxborough should prove a
real scoring threat, and Bird, who
has played well as "wing," will have
the chance to chow what he can do
as a play-maker. It should be an
interesting experiment to watch.
In  the  lost   f.coi'•'•"•   with   the
Grads, Varsity lost 8-0, but all in
dlcatlons point to a reversal of this
score.

Varsity vs. V. A. C. 8:00 p.m.
Adanacs vs. Province 9:00 p.m.
As the grandest of grand finales for
a day's program of sport, tht Inter-
City Basketball League Is capping
Saturday's* heavy list with a double,
header at tht V.A.C. gym. At tight
o'clock Varsity Is to clash with V.A.C.
and when tht floor Is tidied up afterwards, Adanacs and Province will go
and mess It up again. What mere
could sport lovers desire?
With Varsity and Adanacs tied for
first place in the league, and even in
the running for the playoff bye, both
these teams will be working their
hardest to stay out in front. They do
not meet again before the playoffs, so
that its games like tomorrow night's
that are going to count. Province art
following so close on the heels of tht
league leaders, that a win for them
combined with one for the Vacs
would create a three-way tie for first
place.
All the boys will be out for the
game, according to John Prior, Senior
Manager. One of the members Is
rumored to have athlete's feet, but
it is not expected to spread. Varsity's
1935 winning streak was broken last
Saturday by the Adanacs, but the new
life which the boys have shown since
the beginning of the year is hoped
to carry them to victory tomorrow.

iastic aid of the pep club are promoting a very vigorous ticket-selling

University Senior B
Lose Close Game
To Telephonemen
Varsity Senior B's came within an
ace of taking the strong Telephone
outfit into camp last Tuesday night
They battled on even terms for moat
of the route, neither side ever getting
more than e four-point edge, but the
Thunderbirds weakened just enough
In tht dying minutes to let the
"Hello" men eke out a 33-27 win.
Led by George McKee, who played
an excellent game, the Varsity team
checked the Phones to a standstill and
frequently broke away on fast passing
plays which culminated in baskets
with McKee usually on the scoring
end. However, their defense weakened, in the last few minutes and Joe
Hall, March and Keith taking advantage of the breaks sifted through for
the winning points.
First Half Ends 15-15
Almost from the tipoff McKee
broke through and scored on a nice
individual effort and then added two
more points on foul shots. Their lead
was short lived, however, as Hall tied
it up with two fast ones. They battled
on even terms from then on and the
hab! ended 15 all.
Second Half Close
At the change over Varsity again
took a three-point lead but the
'Phones came right back to make it
even-Stephen at 21-21. Telephones
were making good their foul shots at
this stage and took a 25-21 lead. Baskets by Ridland and Phillips, however, put Varsity on top at 27-26.
This ended the Thunderbird scoring.
Hardwick was dismissed on personals,
weakening the Blue and Gold. With
a few minutes to go, Hall and Keith
scored for the 'Phones, putting them
on top 33-27.
For the Varsity team, McKee was
Tuesday's  Victory Gives Adanacs Tie For First Place
Only Nine   Fouls   Called In
Whole Game
Varsity's triumphant march to the
league championship waa halted, temporarily we hope, on Tuesday night
when they dropped a close game to
Adanacs In the last few minutes of
their league encounter. Adanacs' 31-
28 win over tht Thunderbirds puts
them in a tit for first place again
with Vanity, each team having won
seven out of twelve games.
The Varsity players were either
very tired, very bored or were having bad luck en Tuesday, for their
shooting was very far from good. At
that they raced neck and neck with
tht Yellow-Shirts from across Kings-
way up until tht last three minutes.
With about that much timt to go tht
Thunderbirds were behind by one
poin, but baskets by Meehan and
Matthison gave the game to Adanacs.
Defensive Game
The game was more than ordinarily
defensive, with both teams concentrating on keeping the other away
from their hoop rather than getting
at the basket themselves. Despite this
close checking, however, only nine
fouls were called, only three of them
on the Blue and Gold.
Adanacs Take Early Lead
Adanacs took an early 8-0 lead a*
Varsity tried vainly to put the leather
through "the little round hole." Finally Bardsley, Pringle and Henderson
scored for Varsity, and they were
right behind Adanacs throughout the
half, taking their first lead at 14-13
just before the half ended.
Second Half Close
The game was nip and tuck
throughout the second half as the
lead was reversed several times, and
it was anybody's game till Varsity's
zone defence slipped up a bit, to ltt
the two winning baskets through.
Varsity'i biggest lead of tht evening
came when Henderson scored one
from under the basket and Willoughby sank a shot from the aide. Two
long beauties by Fraser and a pair
of free shots by McEwan paved tht
way for the Blue and Gold downfall.
Thunderbirds One Up
The score ln the Varslty-Adanac
private fued is three to two for the
Thunderbirds, and the teams will not
meet again in the league schedule.
Pringle played a nice game on the
Varsity defence again, besides collecting four points. Bardsley and Willoughby, although not up to then-
usual standard of shooting, each
scored eight points to lead the Varsity team. Ken Wright was high for
Adanacs with eight points.
