Speaker Points Out the
Future of American
This continent In 1940—no
longer the United States of
America, and the Dominion
of Canada—but the Technate
of North America.
You won't be bothered with
politics, for there will be no
money to support the politicians. Instead of money, you
will use "Energy Certificates,"
which will have multi-colored
stripes to indicate your age,
sex and occupation.
You will get articles in terms of
the ergs they possess. You will
take your Energy Certificate —
which hears on its face a description of yourself in secret code,
your name, and most important of
ail, your number—and will hand
it in to the store. There it le
punched, and goes in with hundreds
of other certificates to be sorted
by electric eyes and tabulated for
government purposes.   '
You will be put Into one ef 93
eleeeee, according to your "functional operetlon."  You will heve
eeme sey In ohooelng the heed
ef yeur division,  but yeu will
ehoee him fer hie ability and not
on eny political basis.
You will, in short, be citizens ot
the Technate of North America.
This is a bird's eye view of the
future state in which Technology
will be applied, as pictured by Jonathan F. Olendon, when he spoke
Tuesday noon in the Auditorium.
Addressing some 500 Sciencemen,
who formed the main body of his
audience, Olendon proceeded to reassure them as to their real worth
by telling them that the engineer
and the scientist would play a predominant part in a Technocrat
He showed on a blackboard the
confusion ef the preeent economic
order, end pointed out Its weaknesses, whloh he claimed would

with all the eoolel end political
etrueturee aooompanylng It today. Technoerecy will net attempt to reform tha price system
—It will merely welt till It has
died e naturel death and will then
•et up ite own scheme of operation.
There will be 93 classes of people,
divided not by geographical or political considerations, but solely by
their functional operations. At the
head of each one of these will be
a Continental Director, who will be
elected by the members of that division. Besides these 93 there will
he several other Special departments, while heading up the whole
thing will be the Director-In-Chief,
Howard Scott.
Olendon ridiculed the present attitude which held that the right of
franchise was a sacred duty of a
citizen. He added that under the
present system any vote at all
merely showed a wish for continuance of this order. Under Technocracy, he claimed, the people would
have the power to make some "real
decisions"—presumably in electing
the department heads and the Di-
Speaking of the planning of Technocracy, the lecturer asserted that
the most outstanding engineers and
scientists in the world had worked
for 17 years on the organization.
"Their document," he said, "Is the
most vital one on the face of the

of our present economy, the chaotic and poverty-striken millions

and central control, but affirmed
that its coming was unavoidable.
"You have," he stated, "only two

Active Preparation
The Arts-Aggie Committee
have miscalculated.
In fact, they lost a day out
of last week.
0 p t i mistically predicting
that the last of the tickets to
the Ball might be sold Wednesday, and were almost sure
to be sold Thursday, they
neglected to remember that
Wednesday was a holiday.
Possibly deterred from buying
Thursday because of the confident
attitude of the committee in announcing that the tickets would be
gone, the usual, brisk trade in tickets did not occur that day, and as
a result, 62 ot the 225 ducats are
still left.
•else ef the four deye en whloh
the window hee been open heve

The final two days of ticket sale
have therefore been postponed to
Tuesday and Wednesday of next
week. In the meantime anyone who
cannot wait to make sure of getting
his may purchase them from Paddy
Bowen-Colthurst if he can waylay
the active treasurer of the A.M.U.
S. in his dally rounds.
Meanwhile active preperation for
the Ball goes on apace.
The beginning of next week
should see all arrangements completed, with the committee only
awaiting the fateful night of November ia to open the doors to the

Of Skyward Trails
"Vertical methods of transportation are far in advance of horizontal, both in safety and efficiency,"
Mr. Macdonald, representative of
Otis Elevator Company, told the
University Engineering Society,
Thursday noon, during the course
of a series of Alms entitled "Riding
"Amazing elevator speeds have
been made possible by modern engineering, the fastest now in existence being 1200 feet per minute.
The safety problem has by no
means been completely solved, but
the dangers have been reduced to
a minimum," he stated.
The slides gave a detailed account
of the development of the elevator
from the first humble hoists of 100
years ago to the complicated machines of today. Illustrations of the
various early fundamental improvements were shown. The marked increase of the popularity of the
elevator as a passenger carrying
device was noted. The installment
of hydraulic power and the final
advent of electricity in this field
was depicted.
Then followed a description of
the present Otis Elevators, equipped as they are with "Signal Control". Every operation is automatic
and all emergencies are provided
for. The cage is started in the
ordinary manner by an operator,
but is stopped by a device known
as a Selector.
Co-Ed Chosen as Ice
Carnival Queen
Barbara Beney, popular U.B.C.
co-ed, has been chosen by the
Rotary Club as "queen" of their
forthcoming ice carnival. Barbara, smiling and waving her
hand, was pictured on the front
page of a Vancouver newspaper
last night, along with the announcement of her honor.

Delegates From
Spain Route
No Repitition of
Montreal Riots
The Spanish government's travel-
ling delegation, the same one that
prompted the Fascist uprisings in
Montreal a few weeks ago, spoke
in the Vancouver Auditorium Monday evening to an audience that
was sympathetic in the extreme.
Frequently, overcome by the oratory of the addresses, the entire
crowd of nearly 3000 rose and gave
the "popular front salute" of uplifted clenched fists.
Opinions differ as to the star of
the three speakers in the delegation.
Hon. Marcelino Domingo was powerful in his deliverance, but he lost
force when his words had to be
interpreted. Sonora Isabelle de
Palencia, speaking in English, gave
a speech that roused the crowd to
a fever pitch.
The third speaker was Father
Louis Sarasola, a Basque priest,
who had read for him a simple
statement. "I am not a politician,"
he declared. "I am a Catholic and
intend to remain so, but I believe in
supporting my government, no matter what beliefs it may have. That,
in my opinion, is what I should do
as a Catholic."
All of the speakers scored the
"non-intervention pact" as giving
rebels equal rights with a properly
elected government. Both sides are
prevented from obtaining arms,
they pointed out, but Fascist countries manage to supply the rebel
But it wasn't the actual words of
the Spaniards that counted. As they
spoke in Vancouver, their homes
and loved ones were being destroyed,
and they often referred to Madrid
in tones of sadness that almost
wrung tears from the audience.
When collection time came the
aged, the unemployed, those of all
nationalities walked forward and
gave in small amounts until the
sum reached $1700. A. A. MacLeod,
of the League Against War and
Fascism, stood on the platform
and alternately encouraged and
insulted the audience until many
contributed out of sheer embarrassment.
No disturbances were noted, although the tenor of the crowd was
such that one Fascistic remark
would have created an uproar.
Mild Chaos as Work
Goes On Behind
the Scenes
Given $3.10; required scenery for four Christmas Plays.
This is just a sample of the
problems that are being settled by the stage crew these
days—and these nights, too,
since it is usually well past
midnight when the last car
leaves the stage door.
Strange things are happening In
the dusty shadows behind the footlights. Here are Just a few of the
things that you might see If you
were to penetrate the Jungle of music stands, piles of lumber, hanging
ropes, and precariously leaning
flats to where the violins wail and
would-be Thespians orate and
emote to a thousand empty, unresponsive seats.

not, have something to do with the

his stage crew quite mutinous and
And through all this chaos the
Christmas plays are slowly taking
form, more than one star is showing promise of future fame, and veterans assure the tyros that all this
is quite normal, and there will be
a happy ending in spite of everything.—K. O. and J. D.
Outstanding Speaker
Will Give Addresses
Stacey Woods, B.A., B.Th., will be
on the campus for a short series of
addresses commencing Monday the
16th and continuing until Friday.
Mr. Woods arrived in Vancouver
Wednesday, after having visited
groups at Toronto, Western, Manitoba, and Alberta Universities. This
is his second visit to the B. C.
campus, having been here two
years ago.
Mr. Woods, graduate of Sydney
University and Dallas Seminary,
has been for the past four years
General Secretary of the Inter-
Varsity Christian Fellowship. His
experience with university men and
women, combined with his ability
as a speaker, make him well worth
listening to. He is scheduled to
speak at a Youth Rally at Mount
Pleasant Baptist Church, Saturday,
November 14, and also at a conference of students from the U's of
Washington and B. C. in Bellingham, November 21 nnd 22. He has
been invited to spend the following
week-end in Victoria, where several
meetings have been arranged for
Drastic measures will be adopted
for the 127 delinquents who have
not reported for their health appointments and those who have
broken them.
Dr. J. W. Mcintosh. Chief Medical Officer, closes the Health Service at the Gables TODAY. Henceforth all students must make special arrangements at the Health
Service office in the Auditorium.
The Parliamentary Forum, in an
attempt to obtain a larger turnout
of the student body to its debates,
is sponsoring the first noon-hour
debate of the year, Tuesday next.
Should this meeting be a success a
series of similar debates will probably be inaugurated next term, according to Ludlow Beamish, Forum
The subject to be debated is, "Resolved that the colonies lost by Germany as a result of the Treaty of
Versailles, and now under mandatory government should be returned
to the German Reich."
Two new debaters will be given
the opportunity of speaking. Bill
Sibley, who took first place in the
freshman class last spring, will
lead for the affirmative. Professor
Day has expressed himself as
pleased with Sibley's speaking in
the Forum this year, and feels confident that he will soon be taking
part ln major debating.
Alec MacDonald, prominent member of the Badminton Club, who is
taking Economics at the University,
will oppose him. MacDonald has
had previous debating experience in
the Inter-High league, and has been
speaking well in the Forum this
As is customary with Forum debates, there will be an opportunity
for impromptu speeches from the
floor after the two main speakers
have led. The leader of the affirmative then closes the debate with a
five-minute rebuttal, after which
the votes of those present are taken.
A good attendance of students is
requested. The meeting will start
promptly at 12.15 in Arts 100. Announcements of the coming Imperial Debate will be made at that
time—B. S.
Of Matter" Is
Lecture Topic
Dr. Shrum to Demonstrate
Modern Miracles at
Vancouver Institute
The Vancouver Institute lecture
for Saturday evening will be given
by Dr. Gordon M. Shrum, of the
Department of Physics, the University of British Columbia. The subject will be "Recent Experiments
on the Transmutation of Matter."
It will deal with the production of
artificial radium, the most costly
medicinal substance known to sci
ence, and with the biological effects
of neutron rays for cancer and
other malignant growths.
The audience will have opportunity of witnessing, by demonstration,
the realization of the dream of the
medieval alchemists, and see one
of the wonders of modern science
—the transmutation of one element
Into another.
The event will take place in
Room 100, Arts Building, as the
University Auditorium has not the
equipment for a lecture of this
Dr. Shrum will endeavor so to
present his subject that those interested, even those possessing but
a rudimentary knowledge of physics, will be informed and instructed.
The chair will be taken by President George E. Winter at S.15 p.m.
The B.C. Electric Railway provides buses at Sasamat Street,
which go directly to the University,
and wait there until the close of
the lecture. All Institute lectures
are free to the public.
Students Admitted
Free On Wednesday
Twenty-seven members of
the Players' Club will make
their stage debuts next Wednesday night, when they step
onto the stage in one of the
most varied and Interesting
programs of Christmas Plays
in many years. Eugene
O'neill's "Where the Cross Is
Made"; the last act of "The
Merchant of Venice"; a court
room farce, entitled, "Double
Demon"; and a comedy "Lucrezia Borgia's Little Party",
by A. P. Herbert, famous
"Punch" cartoonist, will comprise the evening's entertainment.
Stark realism and the supernatural are combined in the O'nelll
drama, "Where the Cross Is Made,"
ln one of the weirdest tales ever
unfolded on the stage.   From the
moment the curtain rises the ghostly atmosphere ie unbroken, and the
audience is left wondering Just who
is insane, the characters or itself.
"The Merchant of Venice" will
be presented in an original manner under the direction of Prof.
Dilworth,   whose   treatment   of
"Hamlet" leet yeer won eo many
praises.  An Interesting feature of
this play will be the use of Incidental music during some of the
scenes,  an  old   Elizabethan  air
having  been  specially  arranged
for the ocoaalon.
"Double Demon" is a farce ot the
most amusing type, dealing with
the vain, but entertaining efforts
of eleven women on a jury to convert one lone male to their way of
The fourth play, "Lucrezia Borgia's Little Party," presents a new
angle to the story of history's outstanding poisoner, and the etiquette
of her dinner parties. The playwright, who is the popular "Punch"
cartoonist, A. P. Herbert, treats the
story with his usual wit and imagination.
Students wishing to take advantage of the free admission on Wednesday night, must secure their
tickets at the Auditorium Box Office at noon Tuesday.
May Raise Fund To
Help Injured Student
A meeting of presidents of the
lower classes will be called on
Monday to discuss the raising of
funds to defray the expenses of Don
Parham, student injured in the
Snake Parade earlier in the season.
John Logan, who has been delegated by Council to investigate the
possibilities of raising this fund,
states that it may be done eithei*
by private subscription or by some
sort of raffle. "We're appealing
especially to people who were in the
parade," he said. "They were all
in it with Parham, and it would be
a sportsmanlike gesture on their
part to help him."

And Now ... A Stadium
Two years ago the Ubyssey bitterly opposed the then-
popular suggestion that a permanent stadium building be
erected on the site of the oval. At that time the state of the
stadium grounds was such that drastic drainage improvements were necessary. It was reasonable to believe that no
grandstand should be built until the grounds themselves
were fit for use.
Since that time the drainage system has been Improved.
With the track and field in perfect order, the next logical
step in the march towards better times for campus sports
is the erection of seating capacity on the stadium site. Everything has been proposed from cheap bleachers to a large
concrete grandstand. Students may soon have an opportunity to make a choice in this matter.
Keeping in mind the fact that the present gymnasium
is really not sufficient for our sports requirements, and that
the gym is taxed to more than its^comfortable, capacity, is it
not reasonable to suggest that, when grandstands are being
discussed, a larger building with space for a swimming pool,
rooms for indoor sports such as fencing, wrestling, and boxing, and plenty of locker space, should be urged? U. B. C.
needs such accommodation and it needs a grandstand. Why
not satisfy both needs at one time?
Students of the future would use such a building—their
benefits from it would be greater than ours, therefore, they
should be asked to share the cost. There should be no call
for a high-pressure campaign for funds. We have every
right to ask classes of the next half decade to pay in part
for something they will use and enjoy.
As the time for the discussion of a stadium comes closer,
many schemes will be advanced. There may be opposition
from one faculty and support from another. Universty
officials may frown on the proposal or they may endorse it.
In the midst of all this confusion, thinking students will have
to keep clear heads, remembering only that the student
body needs a good stadium, one that will be comprehensive
enough to relieve the crowded gymnasium, and one that can
be paid for over a number of years, not by a banner-waving,
loud and useless campaign.
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Madam:
The editorial, "The Spanish Delegation," In Tuesday's paper contains two misstatements whloh I
wish to correct.
First, with regard to the meeting
for Jack Philips, an application
for the meeting was made on Monday and placed in the proper basket in the Council office. The
Councillor in charge of thie basket
overlooked the form and It was
still there on Thursday when Mr.
Oould and myself checked up. The
discrepancy here was not on the
part ot the Student League but rather on the part of the Council.
The other mistake is: "the Student League merely failed to reserve
a room for the speakers." The
truth ie that the 8.L.C. tried from
Thursday to the end of the week
to get permission for the meeting.
When permission was received,
Sunday afternoon, it was too late.
In conclusion I wish to state that
the etory tn the "Sun" did not originate tn the Student League.
Pres., S.L.C.
Seymour at
SEY. 2088
U. B. C. students, when they are
showing visitors about the
campus, have a habit of apologizing
for the newness and smallness of
the university. They often explain,
"We're only 21 year* old you know.
When we get as old as the University of Washington, then we'll be
as big."
Heaven forbid.
I spent three days ln Seattle last
week. The campus was, to me, immense. I liked the people on It,
when I could find them, but I distinctly objected to the hikes between buildings. One morning I
believe I visited three buildings.
Then I was all tired out.
If U. B. C. wants to grow old,
and I don't see how that can be
avoided, let her do so gracefully
—without taking on any weight. If
our prosent buildings, n their eventual permanent state, are insufficient for all those in the province
wanting a higher education, then
build another college somewhere
If we should ever have 10,000
Btudents, as Washington has now,
the last vestige of university life
would vanish. Let us keep up the
bars of restriction at about a third
ot that number.
EVERY student should make a
point ot seeing the best motion
pictures. It was with a great deal
of pleasure that I noted the article
in the last Ubyssey by Professor
Wood, dealing with the movies. Mr,
Wood has for a long time delighted
his classes with informal remarks
on people and achievements of the
screen world. No one could better
judge a picture than he, and it is
to be hoped that he will make his
appearance in this new guest column againj.
For me, movies have always been
the source of entertainment, not
the object of critical comment. I
always go to a show wanting to
like the picture, not looking for
technical faults to spoil my fun.
Not that I wouldn't love to be a
critic, I Just have not the necessary
knowledge, so I don't try.
In the last five years, I've kept
a record of my movies, about 450
separate pictures, all recorded in
a little black book. Of this number,
around 170 have in my opinion been
excellent. "Liberty" would say
four stars.
This may seem a high average,
but remember that all ot the pictures seen were at the better houses,
and all were advertised as good.
No attempt was made to see second
and third-rate Alms; they were seen
in double bills, or when other
people wanted to go to them.
The point of all this comes now.
If there are a hundred good pictures released every year, university students should make efforts
to see at least 25 of the best. All
that you have to do is to choose
a good reviewer and follow his recommendations, with a bit of caution. For you must also listen to
your friends, your professors, your
parents, and the advertisements.
Those who see few Alms would not
regret taking such a course. The
25 best shows of any year would
be an education in themselves.
J-L  J-o
FOR the students who might want
a little help starting the above-
mentioned policy, a short list ot the
better flickers soon to visit the district theatres. (This is not competing with the "At the Movies"
column, because all of their pictures
are still ln the future.)
See: Green Pastures, because of
its simplicity and perfection: My
Man Godfrey, because of its delightful foolishness, and Swing
Time, because of Fred Astaire. Anthony Adverse is long but it manages to hold your interest most of
the way. Sing Baby Sing is musical and foolish, but entertaining to
the utmost. The Greet Zelgfleld is
not to be missed no matter what
they tell you. Romona, of course,
marks another advance in color
Alms. We might add to the list,
Cain and Mabel, which keeps Gable
and Marlon Davies slugging each
other in gag-ful lines. You forget
it before you get out of the theatre,
Vine Objects to More
Money for Forum
At Council meeting Monday night
the Parliamentary Forum was granted a budget of 9275, over the objection of Lyall Vine, who contended that it the club were granted
an increase all the others would
want one. "If you're going to feed
one horse you have to feed 'em all,"
he said.
In making the motion for a larger
grant, John Logan argued that with
a budget of only $250 the Forum
would be unable to make its proposed southern tour. This tour, he
said, would be excellent advertising
for the  university.
One of the most momentous
events since the Johnstone flood of
1906, the program for Junior pictures in the 1937 Totem is under
way. Just how much under way it
is motivates this note.
It is a positive obligation of
courtesy for Juniors who heve
consented to appointments to
KEEP THEM. Aber has shouldered the onue of arranging appointments through his stoudio,
a Job he cen't fulfill without the
co-operation of students. The
whole process is strictly legal end
constitutional, novel only in that
it offers the junior class for the
first time the opportunity of hev-
ing individual pictures in the
Totem. »
On the success of Junior class
photographs depends the inclusion
of pictures of other classes; Juniors
therefore have it in their hands to
make possible e genuinely super-
Totem by the exertion of a little
punctuality and co-operation.
Through a secretarial mistake,
pictures have been taken of some
lower-year students. This was an
error in that sanction has not been
obtained to take their pictures until
Junior photos are completed.
All students who have missed
their appointments or who hed
appointments made for yesterdey
are aaked to call at the book-
exchange end arrange a sitting.
Aber will be on the campus until
Juniors are "done" and afterwards should other cleases- be
Meanwhile: Juniors are urged,
fervidly, to KEEP THEIR PHOTO

Christmas Plays, picturing you waving the Tongs and crying, "Die,

they are presenting a scene from
the "Merchant of Venice," "The

Eugene O'Nell's tragedy, "Where

Anyway, you haven't told me yet

Want to look glamorously different for the Arts Ball? Then why
not wear a pure white Calla lily tied with a silver ribbon on your velvet
gown. The idea for this new corsage has been introduced by MOWN
IROS. from the American side, where it is now very popular.
To wear with the autumn tones of rust or bronze, Brown Bros, suggest the baby chrysanthemums. Tuck them in among your curls and
even Hollywood would be impressed.
And there are, of course, the popular rose corsages. Token ,the real
gold rose, well known Talisman, pale pink Butterfly, Hollywood the dark
red bloom and many others all make corsages designed to delight the
popular co-ed. Combined with swainsonia or lilies of the valley, they
become even more dainty.
Brown Bros, have unlimited ideas about corsages. Why not phone
Say. 14M and let them make a few suggestions for the Arts Ball.

A light foot means a dancing foot and silver sandals from RAE SONS
IU0GIT SHOP can give you the lightest step in the world. You would
be wise to pay a visit to 644 Granville Street before the Arts Ball and
look over their collection of evening sandals. There are the toeless
models, backless sandals, low heels, twisted straps, high heels, all in
sparkling silver.
Quite as attractive are the crepe snd satin sandals, some of which
are combined with gold and silver kid. Dolores comes in black and white
faille with silver and gold straps twisted on the toe. Roma is in black
with thin silver straps and buckle.
If you prefer a solid color, see Wabash, the satin and faille sandal
which comes in white for tinting or in plain black.

If there is somebody you want to impress at the Arts Ball the most
sensible thing to do is to let the RUSSIAN OUCHISS IIAUTY SALON
make you over. As a special consideration they are going to give an
oil treatment to all University co-eds.
There is no extra charge at the Russian Duchess for evening hair-
dresses, so why not go really formal and get a formal wave to match
your gown. Take your hair ornaments, such as sparkling clips or flowers
with you and the experienced operators will make them an integral part
of your wave.
All you have to do is to phone Trie. 4727, arrange for an appointment, and you will look different for the biggest event of the fall term.

Emphasis is on skirts this year. A full flowing skirt and e brief top
that is the new evening silhouette. Yrn will need one of these new
dresses for the Ball next week. Go first to MADAM! RUNGTS, on South
Granville, for one of her evening gowns is sure to please.
Right up-to-the-minute is the gold and pink-shot ninon with the
peasant bodice and the wine velvet sash and narrow streps. The skirt is
the main thing in this dress, it is made of yards and yards of materiel
and has the new swing-time effect when you dance. The wide skirt is
contrasted with the bodice, which is cut formally low all around.
The mauve lame with the silver threads Interwoven in it is equally
attractive. The tunic effect of the skirt is topped by the cape shouldered
tunic with the low square-cut neck. The bunch of orchid and green
flowers on the shoulder add a festive note.

A certain players club member had to be commanded to make love
to Hazel Merton passionately. His excuse was he did not really know
the girl.

So brief and light you can scarcely feel them at all are the exquisite
satin, chiffon and crepe dance sets sold at the LINGIRII SHOP, on
South Granville. There are the youthful white printed satins sprinkled
with rosebuds, the peach satins which are lace trimmed and perhaps
the finest of all the white embroidered satins.
Mrs. Paton also has a selection of low-backed satin evening slips
which are so necessary for the formal gown.
This fine satin lingeries makes perfect gifts for any occasion, and
as prices are lower than ever this year you can afford to buy a set for
yourself, too.

A gay leather belt and buttons will pep up last year's woollen dress,
so why not order some from the TAILORID WOMAN? New high turbans of twisted leather and colorful suede berets which will withstand
any weather can be made especially to fit you at this interesting shop.
And there are, of course, the gloves in all colors and in all leathers.
Now is the time to order a few pairs for Christmas gifts.
Talking of gifts, there are the soft hand-woven scarves made at
the WOOL SHOP. They can be made of angora or bumpy wools in any
combination of colors. They are particularly grand with fur coats. Why
not go down to the shop at 2207 West 41st and watch the loom at work?

Haven't you noticed what a pleased expression most of the seniors
are wearing these days? Perhaps it is because they have no Christmas
exams., but more likely it is because ASIR took such nice pictures of
them. All their Christmas gift problem is solved. They are just going
to order a dozen or more of their graduation pictures and give them
to all their friends and relatives. And a portrait pictured by Aber is a
gift that anyone would be proud to receive.

In this last week the co-eds have
not been doing as well as they
might have against the outside
teams. On Monday at McDonald
Gym the senior basketball team
bowed down to last year's winners,
the Province squad, while on Wednesday at the campus the Intermediates lost to the younger news
It was due to an uncanny ability
to miss shots that the senior hoop-
ettes finished at the wrong end of
a 26-17 score with the mighty Province team.
In the first half the co-eds tried
for 26 shots, missing all except two
free ones, while the newspaper girls
tallied 13 big points.
A rally by the co-eds ln the latter
part of the game brought them within a few points of the Province but
they cinched the contest with long
shots in the closing minutes.
On the whole the co-eds outplayed the Province girls but Just
could not sink their shots. Two
ex-Province players, Isabel Camp-
bel and Ruth Wilson, scored between them most of Varsity's
In Wednesday's game a clever
young group of Intermediate Province girls showed the co-eds how
basketball le played when they beat
them SM.
With good passing and shooting
the newsettes ran circles around
fighting co-eds who lacked experienced players. Close checking prevented Varsity from getting many
shots, while those they did get seldom went tn.
None of the blue and gold team
was exceptional, but they put up a
valiant flght. As it was, only eight
players turned out; two of them
have not practiced this year. When
the girls tired, there were not
enough players to substitute properly, while the Province coach
could work with two whole teams.
The intermediates will never be
good until enough interest is shown
to get out a full squad.
Varsity's rugby Thunderbirds continued their soaring flight to championship heights when they banked
a powerful Vancouver Rep team 11-
0 on Brookton Point's rain-soaked
pitch on Wednesday.
Although most of the game found
Varsity's mud-covered gladiators
deep in the Rep territory, the first
few minutes was exactly the reverse, with the U. B. C. goal line
in constant danger. Through some
stellar scrum work by the all-star
team, plus some heavy booting on
the part of Smythe .Klnnimont, and
Sowden ,the old oval waa inside the
Varsity two-bit for the first ten minutes of the brawl, and only a couple
of fumbles, and some hard tackling
prevented a score.

College fifteen. One ef hie boots,

eouver two-bit end resulted In

After the brief "time-out-fortes",
the Rep. squad came out to murder
Alma Mater's eons, but failed In
their villainous attempts. Their
policy of "kick-and-follow-up" was
thrown out by Varaity'e board of
strategy, who counteracted it by
taking the preesure off by "marking." and waiting for scoring chances late in the lest session. Diminutive Kerry Lumsden scored the
first one early ln the second ktanca,
on a pass from "Burp" Willoughby,
with Dave Carey converting, to
make It 8-0.
The final U. B. C. aeore wae e

Phee managed somehow—nobody

Hoopers Continue
Win Streak
But Rytrton 37-29;
Fait, Rough Game
In one of the fastest games of
the season Varsity hoopers took a
37-29 decision from Ryerson at the
campus gym Wednesday night.
Although the newcomers to
the Intercity Loop showed lots
of pep end flght, they were com*
pletely outclassed by the more
seasoned college .squad. Taking
the lead early in the game, the
students held it without much
trouble, romping home to an easy
win over the Churchmen.
The new Senior A entry made
the first tally of the game, but the
Thunderbirds soon retaliated with
five baskets before the Churchmen
could count again, and by the end
of the session had kept their lead
intact at 20-12.
In the eeeond frame the Than*
derbirds turned on the heet end
broke-through the Ryerson de*
fence to raise the ante to 82*17.
With a 15-polnt lead the college
took the defensive and coasted
home for a 37*29 verdict.
Pringle   and   Matthison   topped
the college squad with 14 and 9
points and Pratt was the leading
light of the Churchmen.

at half, the lads should recover the
old push for the coming battle. Juniors are prepping for a return bout
with Rosewood Tigers, who held
them to a draw in their first game.
This time, the kitty-cats come to
Varsity who, with renewed strength,
will probably turn out a match
worth watching.
When track stars throw away their spiked shoes, and basketball aces hide running shoes, both donning the rugger cleated
boots, and start fighting on the U. B. C. stadium green turf—
anything is liable to happen, and everything probably will.
This unprecedented, unheard of, in fact absolutely new, and
different brawl of the century was a brain child of track manager Joe Rita. Joe's idea of getting these two athletic organizations battling for supremacy, in English Rugby, is the first brain
wave originating from the campus sport control room in the
history of our illustrious institution.
This rugby tilt, at least that's the kind of game the boys
will attempt to play, is slated for today noon. Following the
rule book, both teams will field fifteen gladiators who will be
trying for tries—whenever they have any spare time during the
hour and half of play.
Erstwhile cinder-pathers McCammon, ap Roberts, and possibly Howie McPhee will troop over to the stadium site to battle
reps, of the "running shoe order," which will include Swan,
WilloiiKhby, Henderson and Bardsley.
