Questionnaire On War
Circulated Through All
Canadian Universities
Prominent Students Give Opinion On
Questionnaire
Was Prepared at Request of World Student Christian Movement
"What do you think about War?" This is the subject of
a questionnaire which is being issued to all Canadian university
students this week, and a copy of which appears in today's
"Ubyssey." Every student is requested to answer one, and
place it in one of the ballot boxes which may be found at the
entrance to the cafeteria or in the Arts building.
The questionnaire was prepared by
the "McGill Daily" at the request off
the World Student Christian Movement at Geneva. Similar questionnaires have been answered at Oxford,
Prague, Yale, and many other centres of student life. Results will be
tabulated and a report sent to Geneva. It is hoped that this will be
the beginning of an international student movement against war.
All Please Answer
The questionnaire is not limited to
male students; co-eds are invited to
express their opinions and to place
themselves in the positions of brothers and fiancees.
It will be leadily seen that the
questionnaire is very thorough and
covers every possible phase of student opinion. In every case the student is given the opportunity of expressing complete aversion to any
participation whatever.
\   Murray Mather Gives Opinion
Murray Mather, when interviewed
on the subject, expressed the opinion
that the questionnaire would serve
a useful purpose in indicating the
general run of student I bought on
the subject of war and armaments.
When asked under what conditions
he would enlist Mather said, "It is
difficult to say during peaceful
times just what one will do and
think when a crisis arises. I cannot
understand pacifists who state that
they will not fight under any conditions. In times of war cur feelings
are stirred up and we fight for self

PRESIDENT OF THE W.U.S.
New Social Club
Sponsored by W.U.S.
INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION,
PHRATERES TO BE INSTALLED
Phrateres, proposed women's social
club, was unanimously accepted by
W.U.S. meeting held on Thursday
noon in Arts 100.
Enthused by the Vocational Guidance Lectures lor men the women
decided to roonsor an eight-weeks
series of similar lectures after Christmas, the speakers to be women prominent in both the established and
coming professions.
Women were urged to support the
Stag Tea-Dance sponsored by the
W.U.S. to be held in the White Rose
Ballroom on Saturday, Nov. 23, from
4:30 to 7:00 o'clock,
History of Society
The main business of the meeting
was to learn of and to discuss the
organization of Phrateres. Ciare Brown
opened the subject with i short history of the society. The idea was introduced at tho University of California at Los Angeles at a large tea
given by the Dean of Women, Mrs.
Helen Matthewson Laughlin in 1924.
Phratres was organized to promote
social intercourse among the women
students on the campus.
"Famous for friendliness" is the
motto; the pin v: black enamel with
the Grejk letter "Phi" superimposed
in gold or pearl:;; and the fees are
moderate, not exceeding two dollars
a year. Membership open to anyone
may be applied for and can be one
of three forms. Active members,
those who are formally initiated, are
entitled to all activities of the organization; associate members, those
who are not initialed, may participate
in all social activities; and inactive
members', those who are interested
but who pay no fees.
Social Activities

Cambridge   Union Has Great
Tradition Behind It

Ballroom.
W.U.S. Tea Dance
Plans All Complete
IT WILL BE STRICTLY DUTCH
TREAT
Maybe the potentates of Women's
Undergrad Soctot.v are getting tired
of the U.B.C. men, anyway they're
giving the other women on the campus an opportunity to meet thc laddies of the College of Puget Sound
at a tea dance after the game on
Saturday.
Details
The time?   4:30 to 7:00.
The {.lace? White Rose Ballroom,
on Broadway, three blocks east of
Granville.
The man? The rugby teams of
U.B.C.  and Coikgc  of  Puget Sound.
The motive? Jack Emerson's Orchestra.
The cost? "Dutch treat," to youse
guys, and forty cents is the set-back.
Here's hoping the proceeds run into   throe   or   four   figures   because
they're  going   to   be   devoted   to the
Women's Union Building fund.
Purpose of Building
When this building eventually rears
its head on our campus it's going to
provide a social centre for all students, men affel women. Class parties will be held there and it will
have rooms to devote to the meetings
of the various clubs.—M.A.E.
How will U.B.C. succeed in her
forthcoming Debate against the team
representing Cambridge and Oxford
Universities? Under the auspices of
the National Federation of Canadian
University Students this debate will
be held on Friday, Nov. 30, in the
Crystal Ballroom, At this meeting of
the new and old worlds, .lohn Sumner and Jack Conway uphold the already high standard of the Parliamentary Forum, an organization
formed within the last five years,
while the English Debaters come
from societies with over a century of
tradition. Bench, Bar, Board of Trade;
Justice M.A. Macdonald, Reginald
Tupper and J. P. E. Malkin will judge
the subject "Resolved that Pacifism is
a spiritually and economically impossible creed."
History of Cambridge Union
The Cambridge Union Society,
which will l>e represented by Mr.
Leslie Jackson, was 119 years old last
spring. From a humble beginning in
a squalid room of the Red Lion Inn,
the Society gradually increased in
strength until in 1866 it occupied the
present buildings behind Round
Church.
Save for a brief four years from
1817 to 1821 when debates were forbidden, the debating history of the
Society has been continuous. However, following this brief lapse for
some time the members were not permitted to discuss political questions
dating from 1800. Many and varied
were the evasions of this ruling. "The
princiles of the French Revolution
were deserving of approbation," also
"the conduct of Mr. Pitt, as far as
the year 1800", were declared suitable
subjects. Current politics also appeared in masquerade. One instance
of this was the discussion of the
question of Women's Suffrage under
the comparative merits of Adam and
Eve.
Most Famous Debate
The Society's most famous debate
took place at Oxford in 1928 on "The
Compartive Merits of Byron and
Shelley." Tho Cambridge debaters,
including the immortal Arthur Hall-
am, had purposely selected the topic
of Shelley's character and powers for
they believed these points should be
impressed on the students of Oxford
from which place Shelley had been
expelled. Much was their amazement
therefore, when after a very interest-

Dutch Dates

At Toronto
Are you a fifty-fifty girl? Or should

Deters we culled from the pages of
The Varsity, the paper of the University of Toronto At first the problem of whether or not to Dutch Date
was confined to the campus, but the
problem became too large for them.

At Friday noon 50 student tickets

night.   Watch the box office and see!
ings alternating business and social
evcnin.'S. Supplementing these are
informal and formal dances, teas and
friendly fire-.-ides'. When the main
unit becomes too large it is subdivided into .siva'ler and more compact groups of twenty to thirty, and
new members may join that group
best suited to their interests.
Already Phrateres is a strong organization in seven of the universities on the Pacific coast. Large apartments or houses serve both as
group meeting places and homes for
the Out-of-town girls. The spirit of
friendliness prevalent has clone much
towards achieving a unified campus
spirit.
The Players Club have scored
again. For weeks the baskstage and
Green Room have been the scene of
much hurry and bustle, the painting
of scenery, tho learning of lines, the
writing of invitations. But Thursday
night the grand climax came when
the curtain rose on the finished product, the Christmas plays.
An erroneous report has been
printed that Professor F. G. C. Wood
directed one of the plays. As it happens, he didn't but the fact that such
a mistake was made shows the high
pinnacle of .success that must have
been reached by this year'; Christmas
plays.
Cocktail
Mix together a bit of Shaw, a bit
of Coward, Pieirot, Columbine, Harlequin and :ome bits of exquisite
humour and you have the sparkling
cocktail entitled "They Refused to
be Resurrected", that the Players
Club serve to their audiences as an
appetizer for he rest of the evening's
program.
This fantasy, directed by Vivian
Hood and Bill Sargent, is played by
Margaret Buchanan, Bob King, Lloyd
Hobden and Don Munro and costumed by Margaret Buchanan and
May Dickson. Kmtelle Matheson and
Victor Palitti provided the properties.
Effective Background
In the next presentation, as in the
first play, it was proved how effective a background could be achieved
with the use of curtains and lighting.
Gray velours, ghostly bim light and
the warm spots r.f color provided by
cushions and stage furniture threw
into sharp relief the tense drama of
"Julius Caesar," directed by Professor Ira Dilworth s.nd Professor Walter Gage. Rod Poisson gave an understanding performance as Brutus,
while Ludlow Beamish portrayed
Cassius equally as well. The more
minor role of the boy Lucius was
played by Charles Locke. A. C. dimming addled the necessary touch of
the supernatural as Caesar's ghost.
The Roman soldiers were played by
Jo Gould, Armanu Powlett, and Leo
Gansner. Costumes were designed
by Hugh Palmer and Margaret Cunningham. Margaiet Palmer designed
the set. while Philip Akrigg assisted
her with the pioperties.
Outstanding
"A Moment of Darkness," the drama of the evening, comes rather close
to being an old fashioned "mclodra-
mer", pregnant with blood curdling
murders, suicides and moments of
suspense, and it is rumoured, gave
some of the audience quite a thrill
with its dramatic climax. The success of the ntce is probably more
due to the clever direction of Bill
Buckingham, assisted by Bill Whimster, and the hard work of the cast
rather than th-.: quality of the play
itself. A background of cold grey
prison walls and the steady ominous
whirr of sewing machines heightens
the atmosphere of this play and helps
in making it thc most outstanding
success of tho evening. The hard,

"Give Aliens the Vote" Cry Forum
******
Against Democracy To Tax Voteless Citizens
High Japanese Birthrate May Swamp Us
By the overwhelming majority of 27-8, the enfranchisement
of all Canadian citizens regardless of race was upheld at Tuesday's Parliamentary Forum in Arts 100. Leaders of the debate
were Norman DePoe for the affirmative, and David Fulton for
the negative. A large turnout of Oriental students gave the
debate a very earnest complexion.
Persia Discussed
By Great Authority
Sir Percy Sykes, the noted authority on Persia, gave a lecture on the
country and his connections with it
to a packed house in Applied Science
100 Tuesday afternoon.
Sir Percy commanded the British
troops in Southern Persia during the
war and held several consular posts
there. He has written several books
and given many lectures en his subject.
Persians Are Aryan
Persia, he said, is of great interest
to us because the people are of the
same race, the Aryans, as ourselves,
and because their king, Cyrus the
Great, was the first great Aryan of
whom we know.
To Persia we owe the gospel of immortality, which was brought back
by the Jews from their captivity, and
the discovery of the properites of
wine.
Water Lacking
The land itself is very fertile, but
of little use since there is no water.
The population remains almost stationary due to the malaria, the lack
of food, and the slaughtering parties
of the raiders from the hills.
The speak sr was introduced by
Dean Brock n the absence of President Klinck. A flask of water was
provided   for   his   refreshment.
Council Squashes
Faculty Fights
TOTEM EDITOR APPOINTED AT
COUNCIL MEETING
<^ "One of the most sacred tenets of
our democracy," said the affirmative
leader, "is tho principle 'No taxation
without representation'. Yet we calmly proceed to tax these voteless citizens without giving them the faintest semblance of representation."
May Be Forced To
"Also, if we do not enfranchise
these people now. we will soon be
in a position where we will have to,
and it won't be pleasant. The Japanese birth rate is three times that
of the white. This growing minority
will soon be large enough to demand
the vote. More revolutions have been
fought on this subject than any other.
And minorities have won revolutions
before now."
"Lastly, I would remind you that
Canada'-: state religion is Christianity. 'Do unto others as you would
be done by'."
The leader of the negative opened
with a discussion of the relation of
the standard of living to the birth
rate.
Colored Races Threaten To Swamp
Whites
"The enfranchisement of these people will not raise their standard of
living appreciably. Their birth rate
will continue to increase. You will
swamp this country with people who
will, by sheer force of numbers, take
command' of the government. The
white will be slowly forced out. If
you wish to continue living here, you
will not enfranchise them."
"Even if they did have the vote,
it would not affect our elections.
There are only forty thousand Japanese and Chinese in this country.
Since their vote will have no effect,
it is useless to give them the franchise. You are only laying the foun-

Council decided to pay the expenses
of Assist. Coach Moe's trip from his
home in Bellingham each Wednesday
when he comes up to coach the team
in American Ruicby. He was to be
allowed a maximum of ten dollars
per return trip for seven trips. Actually only fifty-five dollars will be
required and this will be charged to
the game with Bellingham Normal.
On Nov. 6 a group of downtown business men offered to pay his expenses
and wages at the rate of $100 per

Super Pep Meet
To Be Held Today
PEP CLUB SUPPORTS SATURDAY'S
GAME
As a magnificent close to the pep
activities of the term, the Pep Club
are bringing out an all-star aggregation of musical talent for Friday's
pep meeting in support of the game
with College of Puget Sound. Cam
Smith (Arts '30) will supply the
music with his 10 piece Embassy orchestra. Dodie Brown, well known
young dancer, will be there to regale
the admiring freshmen. Buddy Smith
will coax music out of a piano—and
what music!
The pepsters have announced that
two pianos will be a feature, but it
is uncertain whether1 or not they will
perform simultaneously. The pep-
men are withholding this information. However, a little investigation
seemed to indicate that the double
performance may be expected.
Further details cannot be extracted
from thc club members by threats,
blows, or pleas. All they will say is
"Magnificent! It will be the most
superb, colossal, tremendous, gigantic
super-pep meet of the term!"
The three faculty cheering sections
will be there in full force, Artsmen
in the gallery, Science in the front
rows, and Aggies in their side section.
For all this, the Pep Club is asking
the small sum of five cents, to defray
the costs of all the first term pep
meets. And they say, "Boy! Is it a
bargain!"

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1934
INTRODUCTION TO PHRATERES
The W.U.S. decided yesterday to sponsor
a new campus organization. Phrateres in spite
of its name is not a sorority nor is it solely a
refuge for the non sorority women, both sororities and non-sororities, freshettes and seniors can join by merely applying. It hopes to
bring sorority and non-sorority women into a
closer union.
This is a very excellent idea but in many
ways too idealistic. There is a danger that
when Phrateres divides into groups one
will be exclusively sorority and the other just
as exclusively non-sorority, in which case no
good will have been accomplished. Another
bad feature is that the teas and dances sponsored by the organization will, if the executive
are not very careful, amount to so much more
than the yearly two dollars that quite a per
centage of women will be unable to join be
cause of financial reasons. They will then be
worse off than before.
If everyone joins Phrateres it will be no
more than the women's undergrad. under a
new name, and we all know that membership
in the women's undergrad. has not tended yet
to unite all women in friendliness.
These criticisms are not brought up in any
derogatory sense. We feel that an organization
like Phrateres is probably just what we need
but it cannot be formed by merely voting it
into being. We have just stated what we consider the main pitfalls into which it might
fall. However, with the true co-operation of
every woman and all the women's organizations on the campus it has every chance of being a great success but only if it has that cooperation.

THE QUESTIONNAIRE
The Ubyssey would seem to be developing a
mania for questionnaires during the past few
issues, and perhaps it has not given the students an adequate opportunity to recuperate
from the grilling of the advertising questionnaire before launching the next one against
them on "What Do You Think About War?"
It would have been preferable to leave a
longer interval between them, but since we are
co-operating with the McGill Daily in publishing this second one, we cannot afford to wait
.until next term.
Since the subject is one of such vital interest to persons of university age, it is anticipated that there will be a lively response.
And as the object of the questions is to discover what the general attitude of students
is on the problem, the Ubyssey is remaining
neutral in its attitude. Come on students, show
that you have some interest in international
affairs!
RESTRAIN YOURSELVES!
Students leaving a room at the conclusion
of a lecture are often inconvenienced by the
excessive eagerness of other students to rush
into the room in preparation for the next class.
It is no doubt very commendable that these
students should display such an enthusiastic
interest in their courses, but it is not very
creditable that they should allow this enthusiasm to submerge any consideration which they
might otherwise have for their fellow beings.
For usually those inside the room are just as
anxious to get out and go to another lecture
as the ousiders are to get in.
Oh, John, John! To think that you would rip
me up the back in that fashion when I handed
you all that nice clean space that you could
have done such marvellous things with!
"Sharper than a serpent's tooth ..."
And to top it all, I did not say I was a hy-
pocrit. What I did admit was that the adolescent necessity of accompanying the slightest
co-operative action with shrieks and howls
gripes me—severely. At the same time, if it
helps to sell more tickets for the Arts Ball,
or drags another two or three out to a game,
or even merely helps to prove that the prevalent student cranial ossification has not descended below the chin, I am all for it.
Let us have Pep by all means, and if possible, let us hitch it up to a little achievement.
The recent confict of dates between sorority and frat functions and the Arts Ball, has
produced one of the most sensible pieces of
Council legislation that has transpired for a
long time. In future, such bodies will have to
have the times of their public affairs approved
)>y the lords of the campus.
The conflict itself gives point to the complaints that are directed at the Hellenic brethren and cisterns. It proves that at least two of
their secret conclaves did not think it worth
while to consider the interests of the University in the least when forwarding their own
projects. It was probably pure oversight, but
the type of oversight that only grossly selfish
people would commit.
I doubt that it would be wise to go so far as
to abolish these pseudo-Greek playboys from
the campus, but it would be quite feasible to
put them under the rigid supervision and control of the Council.
Unless they take immediate steps to ,re
verse their habitual attitude of cheap chisel
ling and two-bit squabbling, and turn to using the strength and unity of their organization for the benefit of the University, it will be
the duty of the Council to apply these fetters
to them.
Both they and Council may as well recognize now as later, that the "forgotten men"
(and women) are just about ripe for rebellion
if internal reforms or official legislation does
not remedy the present situation. They form
three-quarters of the student body, and once
they start, the clean-up is likely to be drastic.
I have heard both Councillors and frat-
men deplore "unfavorable publicity." Now is
their chance to avoid causing it, for a campus
"anit-frat" war would provide plenty.
The first move is up to the "bretheren"—
but they haven't got long to make it.
At last the decaying Artsmen have come to
life. They have elected ME to office on their
executive. This is an epoch making event in
the history of the A.M.U.S. I may also congratulate them on the election of William K. Whimster and John Shaneman. They now have a triumvirate of brains, activity and culture at their
head.
Another wise  move  is the  institution of
; monthly meetings. If it is anything more than a
! temporary galvanization that has inspiried this
1 animation, we will have business that will require attention at least that often.
On the executive are three other genle-
men—the class presidents. To them belongs the
privelege of passing on this stimulation to their
class organizations. They need it. Each class
should be responsible for getting some needed
fining done for their Alma Mater each year, no
matter how small, and getting it done by the
sweat of their brows.
SCANDAL
Owing to an unusually large
amount of copy; news, adver-
tsing, and questionnaires; it
has been found necessary to
omit tho soandal column "Dirt

If space is available, this feature will probably appear on

Cultural Advantages
John Conway gave a brief survey
of the cultural advantages to be obtained by enfranchising the Orientals,
One of the surprises of the evening
was the fact that Fuji Tanaka and
Shinobu Higashi spoke for the negative. TunakaV: speech however was
largely ironical.
John George Hill discussed the biological aspect, scoring university
graduates and professors for the falling white birth rate. Professor Day

Mather believes that it is Canada's
duty to stand behind Great Britain
in any war thai she might undertake.
He thinks that a world federation of
states is impossible under present
conditions and advocates a closer unification of the British Empire.
Clare Brown believes that the questionnaire will stimulate student
thought and ha\e a beneficial influence on at least a portion of the student body.
Futile?
Nancy Miles disagrees and refers
to the whole idea as "futile." In her
opinion war is the outcome of hysteria and tha answering of questionnaires by moans of .:olcl blooded
reasoning can give no indication of
what would happen in time of war.
John George Hill who believes in
bigger and better families, is emphatic in his denunciation of war in
all and every form. "I would not
consider enlistin."; unless Canada
were actually invaded," lie declared.
"I would go to i&il before consenting
to leave my native land to become
cannon fodder,"
Will Support Canada
John Conway who, assisted by John
Sumner, will ar;:ue next Friday that
pacifism is spiritually and economically   an   impossible   creed,   says   that
he would considci  it his duty to enlist   in   any  war   in   which   Canada
should   engage.     He   disagrees   with
Mather by stating that he does not
believe that Canada is obliged to support Britain  in European  wars.    He
thinks that Canada's association with
the United States in military affairs
is valuable and  more logical than a
similar     association    with     England.
Conway   maintains   that   pacifism   is
impossible   but   that   peace,  can    be
maintained   'f   the   proper  steps  are
taken.    He thinks that a code of international lawj should be maintained
and enforced by the League of Nations in co-operation with the stronger powers.

Chairs Disappear
From Common Room
There exists row a serious deficit
of chairs in <he Artsmen's common
room through the depredations of
some mysterious agency. The situation is so serious that many are compelled to stand like any beast of the
fields while they eat. The blame is
variously laid on the sciencemen, the
Players Club, 'he Art's Pep Committee, and, of course, the Communists.
Communists Suspected
A well-known pepster sniffed and
said that the engineers were merely
up to their old tricks again, trying
to start a fight. An equally prominent scienceman retorts that the Arts
pep committee hooked the chairs to
provide an excuse for another battle
wih the long-suffering sci-enoe. It is
darkly hinted that the Thespians need
the seats to fill up the aisles in their
forthcoming productions. The general consensus of opinion, however,
is that the Communists took them to
obtain campaign funds.

Mill Town Life
To conclude the evening was "Today of All Days." a comedy of English life in a mil' town of the Midlands, directed by Mr. C. B. Wood
and assisted by Masala Cosgrave. A
number of very humorous lines and
clever character portrayals by several members of the cast make this
play, in spite of its length very enjoyable. The players struggled somewhat with the difficult Midlands dialect, and in ono place one of the men
under the stress of excitement, broke
into broad Scots. Kathrine Youdall
and Winifred Alston excellently portrayed two quaint English characters,
while Hazel Wright* was amusing as
Mrs. Bisham. Mary Moxan was well
cast as the Vjlvet Queen. The acting
of Dorwin Baird as the drunk father
heightened th.} comedy effect and 11
several instances saved tho play from
tedium. The romantic interest in the
play was supported by Sam Roddan
and Marjorie Griffin.
Properties for this play were handled by Conni? Baird and Dorothy
Planche, while the costumes were
convened by Kathrine Youdall, assisted by Sam Roddan.
Backstage
Backstage work is as important for
the success of tho plays as that of the
actual participants in the plays. This
year Alan Wa.sh acted as stage manager, assisted by the scener/ and electrical crew; Pat Larsen, Don Ingham, Bob Thompson, Lyall Vine, J.
F. Davidson, Jack Hill, Goodwin
Johnson, and W. Robertson. Amy
Seed was properties, master and Hugh
Palmer, costumo manager. Those on
the make-up committee were Mrs.
F. G. C. Wood, Bill Sargent, Mr. Dils-

Margaret Eckor.

Slugs Talking Co-ed
To look out for the interests of the
students themselves and to fight
against war and fascism is the purpose of "The Student", an entirely
new and different student magazine,
published by the Student League of
Canada. To carry out this purpose
the magazine f.ttempts to analyze the
problems which are facing students
today and ta show what students are
doing to overcome these problems.
One of the greatest problems which
students must face is that of the facility of getting education. Recently
the students of two schools in Montreal rose in strike when the school
fees were raised. A second problem
is that of unemployment. There is
no assurance for students that they
will have employment after they
graduate. An example of the sad
condition of gradutaes was given. A
cheap restaurant proprietor decided
he would like all his waiters to be
graduates. In answer to his advertisement besides a mob of B.A.'s and
M.A.'s there were at least a dozen
Ph.D.'s.
The Student League also assert that
there are indications on all sides that
the imperalist powers are preparing
for war. The schools are a vital link
in these preparations. School facilities are used in the preparation of
war facilities. The league urges students to unite in a common fight
against Imperalist war, and the war
preparations  now  going  on.
In contrast to these conditions the
Student League looks to Soviet Russia as having ideal conditions for students. There educational facilities are
open to all who desire them, and the
policy of the country is that of peace.
Have you any suppressed emotions
or iiiu.kn desires? Do you ever have
the inclination to swat the co-ed behind you that chatters throughout an
entire lecture hour? If you have
such inclinations try smacking said
co-ed and alibi yourself by declaring
you are in training for boxing. You
MAY get away with it.

A high school student in Boulder
City did a little co-ed plugging in addition to several secret missions to
University of Colorado frat houses
where he evidently believed in
"What'.'; yours is mine. What's mine

himself to various unenumerated articles.

At a meeting Monday evening, the
Varsity Radical Club decided to affiliate with the Student League of Canada and to change its name accordingly. By this action the U.B.C. Student League links itself with an international movement having organizations in the United States, Great
Britain and on the continent of
Europe.
The program of the Student League

Popular With Arts
The now thoroughly awake Arts-
men held their second pep meeting
yesterday, and netted a fairly good
increase of attendance over the last
one. Although the Council office
suddenly ran out of poster paper and
the advertising was correspondingly
limited, a good s!/.ed crowd was present in the Auditorium.
A new Arts song took its place beside "My Mother's A Doukhabour
Lady," and was greeted with loud
acclaim. Also an Arts yell, which
had been hastily composed, was rehearsed.
Arts Sweater
John George Hill gave at great
length the resultr of his visits to
every knitting mill in town (both of
them). It was revealed that Arts
sweaters would cost approximately
three dollars. Put despite the cost,
fifty tentative orders were received,
pending further investigation.
Another feature of what the well
dressed Artsman will wear is blue
hats.    Every Artsman was exhorted

This Society possesses an equally impressive history. Originating in the
short-lived United Debating Society
formed in 1323, the Oxford Union
Society definitely came into being at
a public meeting in Christ Church in
1825. The purpose of the Society was
to discuss any subject not immediately involving theological questions.
Many Distinguished Men
Throughout its long history many
distinguished men have held office
in the society. There they received
the training wiiich was to prove invaluable in their future public careers. W. E. Gladstone, president in
1830, was the first Prime Minister to
be closely associated with the organization. In his later life he retained bis regard for the Union and
in 1890 addressed the members on
Homer. Many of Gladstone's contemporaries, among whom were the
Duke of Newcastle, Bishop Samuel
Wilberforce and Lord Robert Cecil,
gained their early training there.

Prior to 1388 distinguished orators

U.B.C. and C.P.S. to Clash
in Final Rugby Game
Kendall May Be Out Because of Injuries
■ • -      ■
American Football Players Hope To Win
Final Inter-Collegiate Game
Tomorrow the U.B.C. Thunderbirds will meet the College
of Puget Sound Loggers in the final game of this year's intercollegiate American rugby series. According to reliable informants, the game is to take place at Athletic Park at 2 o'clock.
From the same unbiased sources it is learned that student
tickets will be 25 cents.
The College of Puget Sound won against Bellingham Normal, the team that defeated Varsity 44-0. They lost, however,
to Pacific Lutheran 14-6. Manager Milburn of the Canadian
Rugby Club believes that tomorrow's game will mark the first
victory in the inter-collegiate series for the Thunderbirds. Help
him realize his hope by turning out and supporting your team.
Ed. Kendall, star back of the Var-^
sity team, may  not play in tomor
row's game. Ed., who has been the
mainstay of the Blue and Gold offensive, is suffering at the present
time from a combination of water on
the knee and a bone bruise. Twiss,
weighty lineman, will probably replace Kendall in the backfield.
Ralph Henderson, basketball star,
will utilize his ability at ball handling when he plays center for the local squad, Keillor and Jack experienced players on the team, will not
play on Saturday as they have ceased
their sport activity for the year.
The probabh? starting line-up for
the Thunderbirds will be as follows:
Joe Roberts, left end.
"Horsey" Preston, left tackle,
Jim Orr, left guard.
Ralph Henderson, center.
Ken McRae, right guard.
Al Kirby,  right tackle.
"Tiny" Rader, right end.
Fred Bolton, quarterback.
"Punter" Rush, halfback.

Fail To Score
"Midst much and rain the stalwarts fought." Eight braw Artsmen
held eleven similar Sciencemen to a
zero-nothing draw Tuesday noon.
Considering thc shortage of Artsmen
and the hampering effect of overcoats
worn by three Sciencemen, the game
was lively ln spots, with several goals
nearly being scored by the above
mentioned Men of Red. The Arts-
men went up the field several times
but were effectively checked and
hence did not often endanger the Science goal.
With the usual rousing Arts spirit
the class of '3") turned out en masse
to watch this spirited game (?). The
players did not expect spectators on
such a day but they had reason to
hope for more supporting players.
Arts '36 may bow their heads still
lower in shaim. They defaulted their
game to Scienco '36 while Arts '35 at
least made an attempt to field a team.
Will Athletic Reps please remember that they are put on class executives to do something—not just to
get free ducats to class parties. The
word "executive," you will remember,
Is derived from "execute"—to perform: carry Into effect. Wc hope you

SPORTORIAL
Students are no doubt aware that the Universities of California, Stanford, Southern California and California at Los Angeles have English rugby teams. Last year a team, representing
these Universities, visited Vancouver and played the Thunderbirds and downtown teams.
This year local rugby officials hope to bring another representative team from these colleges to Vancouver. However,
certain financial matters have cropped up which make it doubtful if a series will be possible.
Here is an opportunity for the English rugby club and
the Men's Athletic executive to obtain some real inter-collegiate
competition. It might be worthwhile for these gentlemen to
see if they could not arrange for the best of the four southern
teams to come here to Vancouver and play Varsity.
There is, of course, the matter of finance. However, a series
of games between a team representing this University and a
LARGE WELL KNOWN University from the south would attract good crowds. A three game series ought to pay for the
cost of bringing a team up here.

On Saturday the undefeated Thunderbirds clash with the

Thc students have greatly improved
since that game. Under the tutelage
of Coach Hitchin plays have been
perfected which will take Transfer-
men to camp. Laurie Todd will still
be missing from the forward, Bill
Wolfe will return to his position at
centre-half. Tho rest of the boys
are in great shape and keen for victory.
Team
The lineup will be chosen from
Greenwood, Dixon, Sutherland, Thurber, Wolfe, S'ewart, D. Todd, Munday, MaeDougal, Kozoolin and Irish.
Since the first two teams of the 1st
division will be promoted to the Intercity League at the end of the season, the competition for top berth
will be exceptionally keen. If the
breaks are with them Varsity will
land on top of the league.
Storagemen Strong
The Storagemen can be counted on
to field a strong team. In their first
game with Varsity they nearly took
the Blue and Gold squad into camp.
The Thunderbird.; were lucky to get
a draw by a fluke goal in the last
few minutes of the tusscl. The Cartage men are the only team to date

Tomorrow's Game Marks Beginning of Second Half of Schedule

schedule. The Marpole boys have a strangle-hold on the cellar
position, but having obtained a few Canadian football men,
they claim they will go to town in their final games.
Varsity, on the other hand, will be in tip top shape with
the exception of Hager, who came out on the wrong end of a
tackle in the practice Wednesday and is now nursing a pretty

SECOND DIVISION "A"
TEAM TO PLAY ROWERS
Sciencemen
Yelland Yodel
In an orgy of rhythm, smoke and
bad grammar, Science held another
pep meet yesterday noon in Applied
Science 100. The function was enhanced by the presence of Stan Patton and his oichestra, the Nurses,
one new yell, and the Thunderbird,
who did the first measure of the
Rhumba and i/ien retired in a shower of lunch oapers,
Plans For Party
Plans  for  today's  noon  hour   Pep
Meeting and tonight's Science-Nurses
party were arranged, and it was made
clear that Artsmen would not be admitted tc the p&rty. Bouncers will
be on hend to meet any emergencies,
The usual yells end songs were yelled
and sung with the usual Science exuberance, and | eppy selections were
given by the orchestra. The announcement that tha new campus yell-leader was to be Max Legg was greeted
with riotous applause.

Arts - Science Rugby
Game Planned
At last the student body Is to &ee
the feature Rugby game of the year.
After much delay the Artsmen have
come forward to challenge the men of
Science to a gome of English Rugby.
If the Science ment feel that they
would like to Indulge In such a gome
It will likely be held next Tuesday at
noon. From all Indications the game
will be a thriller, although the Arts-
men claim that It depends largely
on the length of the game just how
high the score will run.
They figure that they should take
the Sciencemen by about 15 tries although the iCngineers may havo different ideas, in any event it would
seem that the Artsmen will have the |
upper hand over the Sciencemen in
the game as thc great majority of j
Varsity's first team are in the Arts j
faculty. |
A list of the Artsmen from which I
the team will likely be picked foi-'
lows, look at it, Sciencemen, and
weep. It looks as if the story of the
Science grave will become a reality.
The following arc the men the Arts
faculty have to choose from:
Mercer, Hager. Whitelaw, Bird,
Wilson, Harrison, Maguire, Pyle, Robson, for the first string team, Also
there are several Canadian Rugby
players, Willouphby, Henderson and
Preston being tmee who have expressed  their intention  to  play.
The second division A rugby team
will take on Rowing Club at Memorial Park this Saturday and after
showing the firsts all week just how
the game is played, they are hoping
to continue their instructions by taking the Stanley Park boys into camp.
The team, although slightly re-arranged lest week, is almost the same.
