Managerial System
Adopted By Council
For Major Sports
Extensive Duties of Senior Manager Outlined
By Max Stewart
"Thunderbirds"   Recognized   As   Official
Team Cognomen
The Managerial System of organizing sports on this campus
became a reality when Council brought it into being last Monday evening. Under this new plan, each of the five major sports
will be under the control of a Senior Manager who may be assisted by three Associate Managers and a maximum of siv Junior Managers.
New Awards Slated
In speaking of awards, Max Stewart,
president of the Men's Athletic Association, explained that Junior Managers will receive no award; Associate
Managers will get small Block sweaters but with an M instead of a stripe
on the arm; while Senior Managers
will obtain coveted Big Block sweaters also with an M on the arm instead
of a stripe.
Qualifications Outlined
Reports indicate that the only qualification for Junior Manager will be
a keen interest in his particular sport
and a desire for hard work. To be-<$>
come an Associate Manager, one must
have served well as a Junior Manager in previous years; while to become
a Senior Manager, one must have previously been an Associate. Of course,
for the first year, exceptions will have
to be made to this ruling.
Duties of New Offices
A Senior Manager will perform
practically all executive work in connection with "he ♦ earns except choosing the members. He will be appointed
by the out-going manager, together
with the Faculty Representative, the
president of the M.A.A., and the Head
Coach. He will be removable by and
responsible to Council on all matters
pertaining to his department, including leagues, play-off series, trips and
finances. He will travel with the first
team as business manager and'will
represent.his sport on the M.A.A. executive.
"Thunderbirds" Recognized
Official recognition was given the
name "Thunderbirds" as suggested by
Clarence Idyll, assist. Sports' Ed. of
the Ubyssey and Athletic Rep. of the
Freshmen Class and as chosen by a
representative ballot at a recent Pep
meeting. Thus ended an extensive
campaign by the Ubyssey and the Pep
Club to choose a suitable piece of
nomenclature for the Blue and Gold
Teams.
Dance Refused
Council refused permission to the
Basketball  Club to hold a dance m
Fascist Matron
Defends Regime
Like the reincarnation of a noble
Roman matron defending her beloved Rome before a horde of Briton
barbarians, Signorina Amy Bernardy
in a high commanding voice evoked
her audience to admiration for the
ancient mistress of Europe. Addressing them as "sons of a distant empire"
she announced in her introduction
that she intended to change for her
hearers the study of classic Rome
from a dry subject to one of living
interest. They as British people
owed a great deal to ancient Rome
and should give her just tribute.
Tho first great influence of Rome
on the modern world is that of culture. From her central position on
the Mediterranean she collected the
best of all the surrounding cultures,
Phoenician, Greek. Persian ancl even
Chinese and has bequeathed this heritage to modern students of the Latin
language.
This culture has been spread
throughout the world primarily by
means of the Roman roads which are
in the opinion of the Signorina the
second important influence of Rome.
Coupled with this influence is that!
of a system of colonial government
from which that of Britain has been
molded. I

interfere with the sale of tickets to

A two-year agreement with the

French Attitude
On Disarmament
Speaker's Topic
The foreign policy of France was
the subject chosen by Comte Jenn
de Suzannet when he addressed trie
French students of the University on
Wednesday afternoon. The Comte,
who saw service in th. Great War,
was a battalion commander at Verdun in 1916. Since the Armistice he
has been a resident of Victoria, but
he has not appeared as a speaker at
the University until this time.
Self-Sufficiency
In a general consideration of the
policy of the French, M. de Suzannet
stressed the peculiar position of the
French in world affairs at the present
time. Perhaps the most self-sufficient
state in the world, without the slightest inclination for self-advancement
at the cost of her neighbors, Frame
was thrust into the World War by
the fulfillment of obligations, and
was left responsible for a huge debt,
by the defalcation of other nations.
Peace-Loving
France, said thc speaker, is essentially a peace-loving country. She is
merely seeking security from foreign
invasion . She does not seek an important place in world markets or
the economic world, The question of
debt, which was vital to France for
so long, has now lost its interest in
the face of the armaments question.
Security or Disarmament
The attitude of France on this question is directly contrasted to that of
other countries, notably England. The
idea of the French is—first security,
then disarmament, while the English
follow the less logical idea that security will of necessity FOLLOW disarmament.
M. de Suzannet leferred ba^k to the
attitude of 1919, when the French
were faced with the tremendous problem of rehabilitation, yet were optimistic enough to believe that a new
world might be built up from the
chaos resulting from the war, and
entered the League of Nations with
the hope of preventing a recurrence
of that state of affairs.
International Commission
In discussing the status of the Sac.r
Valley, M. de Suzannet lauded the administration of the International Commission which has been administrated
by various men of importance in
world affairs, among them Ramsa/
MacDonald.
The French point of view on the
questions of armaments and world
economics differ materially from those
of other countries, ancl the Frenc'.i
Department of the University arranged the lecture in the hope that
the students might thus obtain a
widei viewpoint in the consideration
of  world  affairs.
Nationalism And f
Internationalism
Literary Subject
The speaker at Saturday's meeting
of the Vancouver Institute will be
Dr. A. F. B. Clark, of the University's
Department of Modern Languages.
The subject of the lecture is "Nationalism in Literature.' It will be
given in Room J.00, the Arts Building of the University, commencing at
8:15 p.m.
Dr. Clark's recognized ability as a
lecturer, and his wide and exact
knowledge in the field of literature,
will have ample scope in the topic
he has selected. It is an aspect of
internationalism tending to create
sympathy and unity among readers of
differing racial stocks. In these clays
of aggressive national assertion, alike
in armaments and tariffs, it is desirable to direct attention to all forces
that help towards understanding, and
for this Dr. Clark's address will give
opportunity.
All Institute lectures are free. For
those not owning cars the B. C. Electric maintains e bus service from
Sasamat Street to the University before the lecture.

VALEDICTORY GIFT
Will members of the graduating class please hand in any
suggestions regarding the valedictory gift to the executive as
soon as possible. These ideas
have already been submitted:
That the lighting system in the
carrels be improved by the installation of desk lamps. That
the Library endowment fund
be augmented.
Petroleum Properties
Depicted to Chemists
"Gasoline," the properties and their
effect on a car's performance, was
the subject of Mr. Duncan Fraser's
address at the open meeting of the
Chemistry Society held Wednesday
last in Sc. 300 .
Mr. Fraser dealt with the constitution of gasoline, of which benzene,
naphthaline, acetylene, nitrogen, or-
ygen, sulpher and carbon, etc., are
present in varying amounts, after
which the speaker launched into a
description of the different elements
of this composite chemical product.
From the point of view of the refiners, the actual composition of gasoline is of little interest. The producer manufacturers a gasoline according to the specifications which
experience has shown will produce
a product which is a satisfactory fuel
for motor engines. The color, achieved
by a dyeing process, contrary to popular conception, has little significance
in determining the fuel quality of thc
product.
"Cry Havoc" Used As
Basis Of Sermon
There will be special services at
the First Baptist Church, corner of
Nelson and Burrard streets, on Sunday, Feb. 25.
The morning service will be in
charjje of Dr. C. C. McLourin, who
is so well and favorably known in
Western Canada.
The evening service will be in the
nature of a special mens' service and
music will be provided by the Burrard Male Choir under the direction
of Evan Walters. At this service the
minister, Rev. Albert Paul, will speak
on the subject, "Cry Havoc," suggested by Beverly Nichols' book of the
same name. All who are concerned
with the problem of war will be interested in hearing the topic discussed.

homely face, Katisha has a left shoulder blade that is a miracle of loveliness and a right elbow that people
journey miles to see.
Radical
Decries
Fascism
Duce Is Italian Cap-
one, Says Stephen
"The creed of Fascism is to make
the world safe for Capitalism." Taking this pronouncement as his basis,
Mr. A. M. Stephen outlined "The
Philosophy of Fascism," as seen by
a radical, Thursday noon in Arts 100.
We are facing a black spectre comparable only to the red spectre which
overshadowed Europe slightly more
than a decade ago. Back of this
movement is Benito Mussolini a man
of ruthless power, who has chosen to
derive his party name from the traditional "fascis" carried by the Roman
lictors of ancient times. The Fascist
militia employ this ancient power to
guard  the  public order.
Not only has the dream of Balila,
a Fascist publication, a militaristic
aspect, but it is quite capable of fulfillment. For "II Duce" is providing
his youthful followers with food and
and black shirts, and when they are
old enough he will provide them with
rifles with which to recapture Rome's
lost glory.
Regulations imposed on the people
prohibit divorce, for which Italian
women are liable to imprisonment.
Birth control has been abolished, and
international clubs, except as organised by the government, have been
stamped out completely.
A citizen who dares to oppose the
Fascist candidates chosen by the
Grand Council at election time, is endangering his life and freedom. Despite this fact, 135,000 voters turned
down the Fascist slate in the last
contest.
"Fascism is founded on the twin
peaks cf nationalism and orthodox
religion," declared the speaker. With
the cry, "no religion, no state," Mussolini signed the Lateran Treaty in
1926, freeing the Pope from the Vatican. No freemason can wear a fascist badge.
"A east-iron dictatorship of a party
with one man at the head, which
holds capitalism *n force till the contradictions within ihe state blow it
to pie.es," was the descript'on of the
corporate state set forth by Mr. Stephen, 'the idea of a joint standing
committee between employer*, and
employees has been advocated to
•-ome extent for many years, espcc'al-
lv in Great Britain.
lM-fsol'ni is the "Capon, of Fascism." directing the racket-like ef-

Musicians Triumph
In Fine Performance
Of Sullivan Opera
"The Mikado" Greeted With Acclaim By
First Night Audience
Eleanore Walker and Ellis Todd Outstanding In Comic Roles
By J. ALLEN BAKER
Amid a blaze of colour and song the Musical Society opened
on. Wednesday evening what will undoubtedly prove to be the
biggest triumph, of their career. The play dragged considerably
until the entrance of the chorus of girls, probably due to the
usual first night nervousness. From this point on, however, it*
brightened up and more than fulfilled the expectations of the
audience. The most popular songs were "The Flowers that
bloom in the spring" and the duet by the formidable Katisha
and Ko-Ko, "There is beauty in the
bellow of the blast."
Solo Honours
Alice Rowe, as Yum-Yum, brought
to her part an experience that was
nece-isary to stiffen up Callum
Thompson, who played opposite her
as Nanki-Poo. She made the most of
her beautiful solo, "The sun whose
rays are all ablaze."   Eleanore Walker,
in the character role oi* Katisha,
shared the honours with Ko-Ko. H«r
solo, "Alone and Yet Alive," was the
most skilfully sung of all the solos.
She turned in the best all-round performance of the cast. Ellis Todd, as
Ko-Ko, took full advantage of a splendid part. The scene between these
two was undoubtedly the finest in the
play.
<♦> Poo-Bah Splendid
Gordon Heron as Pooh-Bah, although suffering from a slight illness,
gave a fine performance as the pompous "Lord High Everything Else." A
slight tendency to overact was\iotice-
able at times, but that was a fault on
the right side in such a character as
Pooh-Bah.
Callum Thompson, in the unconvincing and shallow role of a comic
opera hero, suffered considerably from
nervousness. He has the appearance
and voice suited to such a part, however, and will do very well when he
overcomes this slight fault.
Effective Coaching
The play displays a long and careful
coaching in stage business, which was
very effective, although a trifle
strained in parts.
The whole performance suffered
from a slight nervousness which will
undoubtedly pass off later.
The musical direction was under the
experienced leadership of Haydn Williams, while the stage director was E.
V. Young.
European Culture
Brought To Campus
By Signor Croizat
"The study of painting has greatly
enriched my life," stated Signor Eu-
genio F. Croizat, internationally known
Italian art connoisseur, in an illustrated lecture delivered Tuesday afternoon in the Auditorium.
"We, living under present day conditions, need something to uplift us;
painting supplies this want. People
have told me that it is impossible to
interest the masses in painting, but I
have discovered that it is possible."
Story of Painting
With an accent which, in its delicate ancwpleasing tones, savored of
southern Miuntries, the speaker presented to his listeners the story cf
painting, its past and present trends.
His words were illustrated by colored
lantern slides, exact copies of the
world's famous masterpieces.    '
Signor Croizat began his lecture by
explaining the trends of modern art.
With the invention of the modern
camera, whose mechanical eye can
embrace more detail than is possible
for the eye of an artist, many painters decided to outdo the camera and
the modern school of impressionists
resulted.
Blind Alley
"The impressionists were going up
a blind alley, however. We cannot
improve the works of the past masters—we must find new ways of expression. We have many good painters today, but no great masters."
The lecturer showed slides of works
from the American, Spanish, German,
Dutch, English and French schools,
among which appeared works from
the brushes of Cezanne, Holbein, Cra-
nach, Hals, Vermvya, Rembrandt and

"Race Difference

The case for racial inequality is

Dr. C. W. Topping at the International Relations Club when it met at
Dean Bollert's Tuesday evening.
Physically people of all races tend
to be the same. Neurologically there
is no definite difference. Psychology
gives no conclusive evidence. The
Nordics point to their higher culture
as a mark of their superiority but
they   borrowed  practically   all  their
high culture from Egypt, Babylonia
and Greece.
All admit now that there are no
pure races. Racial blends are the
carriers of culture.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1934
A SAD STORY
The Paramount Hotel in New York recently advertised for three bus boys to remove
dirty dishes and clean up the kitchens. More
than 1000 applications for the job were received.
There were graduates from universities
and colleges all over America, as well as several graduates, from Europe. There were no
less than twelve doctors of philosophy among
the motley throng and half a dozen proud possessors of Phi Beta Kappa scholarship pins.
We don't know who got the jobs. They
likely went to urchins from the East Side. And
there'is little doubt but that they would make
better bus boys, than the assorted collection of
chemists, geologists, doctors and lawyers that
made application.
This little story has no moral. It is only a
sad, sad little tale that ought to draw a pensive
tear from the eyes of Arts '34. Until they open
the new Canadian National Hotel there won't
even be jobs for bus boys in Vancouver. New
York graduates have an unfair advantage,
FASCISM IN THE FASHION
We have all witnessed an amusing anomaly
of late. Three Italians of compelling personality
have visited us and unfolded a jubilant tale of
Italian Fascism. A flurry of professorial importance surrounded their stay, and the Ubyssey in a spasm of journalistic exhuberance devoted three of its precious six columns to them.
And the National Council of Education sponsored them.
No one raised a hand in remonstrance as
our long suffering democratic system was
cheerfully handed a generous portion of calumny. No voice was raised to protest historical
inaccuracy when man's cultural life was hinted
as originating with the Roman Empire. That
the Canadian branch of the Committee of Intellectual Cooperation was sponsor was thought
sufficient.
In case any students were carried away by
the euphemistic description of happy Italy,
let him turn to the Political Science Quarterly
in the Library Magazine Room and read Mussolini's e say reproduced from the Italian Encyclopedia. It is quite amazing that such specious rearmim-, with its gaudy paraphenalia of
shirts and symbols should capture modern nation:;. Oi' course Fascist states have captured
whole nations only by coups; yet they capture
the mind ; of formidable porlions by their own
<v0RB GSB OTB"
The   W-sLKus
by nancy miles
The inimitable Gertrude Stein, or is it
Alice B. Taklas, has produced the libretto for
an opera in her unique fashion. The music
was written by Virgil Thomson, but probably
his glory will all be reflected.
The name of the opera is "Four Saints in
Three Acts." Yet undeniably there are thrifty
saints in the dramatis personae, and there is
a prologue as well as four acts. It's rather bewildering.
Act 1 is labelled "Avila: Saint Therese half
indoors and half out of doors," Act II. bears the
title, "Might it be mountains if it were not
Barcelona," and Act III. is distinguished by the
name, "Saint Ignatius and One of Two literally."
One song runs: "Let Lucy Lily Lily Lucy
Lucy let " and so on ad infinitum.   And
another is called "Saint Therese Something
Like That." Among the most erudite of the
lines are:
"If it were possible to kill 5,000 Chinamen
would it be done."
To which Saint Therese's deputy replies,
"Saint Therese not interested."
Gertrude Stein's remarks and writing
would furnish enough copy to fill the five-foot
bookshelf, but that would make people schary
cf reading them. Once she said, "My sentences
do get under their skin . . . . " which seems to
be the truest thing she ever said, judging from
the condemnation she receives.
She tias a dog called Basket to whom she
owes a mighty debt. "The rhythm of his water
drinking," she said, "made me recognize the
difference between sentences and paragraphs,
that paragraphs are emotional, and that sentences are not."
Occasionally she does strike a vaguely
familiar chord, something whose surface is unfamiliar, but whose effect stirs one. Arthur
and I, both difficult to arouse, admit to faint
stirrings from one of her definitions:
" A sound. Elephants beaten with candy
and little pops and chews all bolts and reckless rats."
And we can get quite excited over the
name of the book this comes from. It's called
"Tender Buttons."

MONRO HhEIMEDICAL CLUB
There will be an open meeting of
the Monro Pre-medical Club on
Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 12:10 sharp in
Ap. Sc. 101. Mrs. Lucas of the University Health Service will speak on
"Public Health Definitions." By reason of its recent beneficial results,
this branch of medicine has rapidly
shown its importance, and is becoming more important every year.
The lecture will prove interesting
and instructive to all those intending
to follow any branch of medicine.
All those interested are invited to be
present.
VIEWING WITH ALARM DEPT.
Does this menace of popular songs which
have take their titles from wholly irrelevant
literary pieces annoy you ? We view the situation with serious misgivings. It wouldn't be
so bad if moronic radio announcers wouldn't
add '*i~from the motion picture of the same
name." But that's what happened to "Farewell
to Arms," "Strange Interlude," "Design for
Living" and lots of others.
Almost any day we expect to hear something like this: " 'Merchant of Venice,' from the
picture of the same name," which will run so:
"That merchant of Venice,
That sentimental menace,
The man who grinds the organ,
With a monkey on a string."
The cinema is not noted for its originality.
Once a critic of movies, wearied to death of
torch songs, suggested one be written called,
"What Will You Do, When Your Red Ants
Turn to Blue." Now there was,a field for originality, ancl instead they turned out a little
jingle called "Strange Interlude," from the
picture of the same name."

PICOBAC IS A REAL SMOKE/
"My idea of a real smoke is a pipe and
Picobac tobacco. I can smoke it all day
—without burning my tongue . . . without making my mouth sore . . . without
spoiling my appetite for meals.
"Picobac is just that kind of a smoke!
"And, gentlemen, the Picobac flavour is
SOMETHING—I'm telling you. Some-
thing different . , . sweeter . . milder

"I'm proud to say I'm a Picobac man,
HANDY POCKET TIN \Q&
and I'm telling you now, gentlemen,
Picobac is a real SMOKE, and the longer
you wait to try it, the longer you lose out.
"Grown from selected seed in sunny
southern Ontario—cultivated . . . cured
,.. matured... and manufactured according to the latest up-to-date ideas, Picobac
is the pick of Canada's Burley crop and
a mild . . . cool . . . sweet smoke.

you get more tobacco for your money.
It's good for making cigarettes, too."

McKechnie Cup
The bone of contention, Donated by
the Chancellor to represent the English Rugby supremacy of B. C .
NOT TC©   PERSONAL PERSONALS
Tye—Playing his third year of McKechnie Cup'
rugby, Derry is a splendid link between the
forwards and backfield. He rates with the
best half-backs in B. C.
Mitchell— Jim is responsible for the quick
heeling of Varsity's scrum, playing hook.
He is fast and very hard to get past.
garrison—A freshman "find", John has become
a very strong forward, and a terror in loose
scrums. He played Australian football, an
entirely different game from ours, and had
to learn all over again.
Pyle—Jimmy compiles the stocky front line of
the scrum. He is a tireless worker. This is
his first year on the Cup team.
Pearson — Harry is vice-captain and scrum
leader, and is rated as B. C.'s best breakaway. He has a terrific tackle, is strong on
attack where he revels in "roughing" it.
Maguire—A standout in his first year, Ed. has
been playing brilliant rugby in recent
games. All his opponents have a healthy
respect for him.
Senkler—"PoWer" is great on attacks and in
line-outs, where his height is a great help.
He is a Big Four Canadian rugby star.
Upward—Ron always uses his weight to great
advantage. He is very fast and is a fine
tackle.
Morris— Bill, with his 220 pounds, is literally
the big push in the scrum. He has had plen-
» ty of experience and is very strong.
Leggat—Strongest broken field runner on the
team, Strat has a high scoring average. His
swerve and change of pace fool many would-
be tacklers.
Pugh—Dave is small but makes up for it by his
speed and clever running. He has scored
regularly this season.
Dalton—Besides being a strong hard runner,
Chris has been the sensation of the year
with his accurate place kicking, which has
added many points to Varsity's total.
Gaul—Bobby is the veteran of the team, and
the fastest three-quarters on the squad. His
experience makes him valuable.
Al. Mercer—At inside three-quarters Al has
played very useful games this season. He is
a strong tackle and a fine kicker.
Gouminouk—Gleb has lately been brought up
from the second team to take Gordie
Brand's full-back berth. He is absolutely
fearless and has a nice kick.
Ken Mercer—Playing his third year on the Cup
team, Ken is captain this year. He plays the
difficult five-eighths position, and is the best
captain on the team.
The Scrum — Varsity's scrum is one of the
strongest ever to wear the Blue and Gold.
Using a seven man formation, it has beaten
many of the eight man scrums opposing it,
and acknowledges no superior. It has been
a great help towards the success of the team.
The Backfield— The backfield line-up shows
some real speedsters. Coach Tyrewitt has
developed the fastest back-field in B. C. on
Varsity's campus this year. Position-play,
tackling and strategy add to the polish of
this part of the team.
Varsity's McKechnie Cup Entry
Trophy Has
Long Record
Of Rivalry
When Varsity and Vancouver meet
on Saturday, they will be playing a
crucial match tn the race Lor the historic McKechnie Cup. The McKechnie
Trophy Is symbolic of the EngUsh
Rugby Championship of this province
and has a long history and tradition
behind It.
Donated In 1893
Chancelolr McKechnie donated the
cup named after him in 1893. However,
the University was not then opened
by many years. In'1923 Varsity first
entered a team in the McKechnie
Cup which has since then been competed for by the three Vs, Vancouver,
Victoria and Varsity. The following
year they succeeded in winning the
cup and held it without a break for
six years, 1922-27. During this period
the McKechnie Cup Series was the
major athletic event of the year at
the University.
Lost Cup In 1928
In 1928 Varsity lost possession of the
cup and, despite many strong bids
have not yet succeeded in regaining
It. Last year they lost out to Victoria
In the title race. This year they are
tied with Victoria for second place and
need a victory to remain ln the title
race. Get out tomorrow and cheer Varsity to victory as ln the "good old
days". YOUR support will enable Var-
slty still to have a chance to bring
back the Cup to Its proper home, a*
of yore. In the Library.

Varsity Triumphs Over Adanacs 32-25
ATHLETE'S
ECCT^NCTES
By AB. SORBINE JR.
one
Two weeks ago, when "Foot-notes"
began to irritate the collegians,
of the printers
made a grave error
which must have
deprived Ab. Jr. oi
at least half his
readers.
He stuck in a
half-column cut of
that slug that
writes for the Province every time
they get hard up
for space—I don't Abie Jr.
know    his   name,
but he's been stealing my best gags
since the days of Uncle Willie's terrible mishap.
But don't ask me where I get
them ln the first place!
Whhjh reminds Ab. Jr. (whose true
countenance appears in the accompanying cut today) of a rather simple
little gag told on the old maestro, Ben
Bernie.
Being interviewed, Ben was asked,
"You like horse-racing, Mr. Bernie?"
"Yttws-h!"
"You follow the horses?"
"Yowsah!"   chuckled   Ben,   "and
the horses I follow follow the other
horses."
Can Varsity take the Adanacs three
straight?
Ab. Jr. says they can, with or without the backing of the "Basket-
Buller."
Ol! course you know there's an Incentive. A win tonight assures the
boys of a trip to Seattle tomorrow
where they will appear in a preliminary, mind you, against the Washington Frosh, tsk tsk,

For Coming Spring Term
And the student golfers will rip
their way from one end of the University golf course to the other tomorrow morning in the first round
of the Varsity golf championship.
Mac Whitelaw, one of the entrants,
tells Ab, Jr. that he was out practicing the other day and didn't know
whether he holding on to the shaft
or the head of the club !
Having seen Mac play, Ab. fails
to see where it makes much difference.
But Ab., who sees all and knows
little less, can pick the winner hands
down. As a matter of fact, why play
the tournament,?
Teddy Charlton's got it in the sack,
unless perchance Charlie McCadden
or Tarzan Prevost or ... .
Anyway, tee high and press, boys!
Dr. Sage, of History, reports that,
in a duel fought tn the good old days
ln Germany, one of the combatants
needed 110 stitches of plain and
fancy map-embroidering when the
Jabbing ceased.
Now there's an Idea.   This Inter-
fraternity softball is pansy.
I could go for a slice of FIJI.

One of the most traditional events
of tho Var.rtiy year takes place not
Wednesday when the Arts '20 Rslay
is run off. This race, started by the
class of '20 was originally a form of
propaganda to interest the public in
the new University site. Since then
mora and more interest has become
attached to this event, till now in
the minds of the students it is the
most looked forward to race of the
year.
'34 Favored
Rumor has it that, an especially
strong team havvs been entered by
Science '36 ancl Arts '37; while the
Aggies and the Anglican Theologs
are expected to show strength. However, the class to beat will undoubtedly be Arts '34. This class has won
the event for the last two years and
with an exceptionally strong team,
including Barclay, Pugh, Stewart and
Dalton, should be able to repeat.
However, it is still anybody's race
and may the best team win!
Meets In Offing
A  week  from  today  an  attractive
noon-hour program in being arranged
by Bill Stott. Invitation handicap
races are being run in both the 100
ancl 220 yards. These will bring together Stott, Heron, Stewart, Roberts,
Wilson Sutherland, Gauland and very
likely Dr. Harry Warren. McTavish,
a veteran of four years experience on
Varsity track teams, and this year
president of the club, is out of these
events and perhaps for the remainder
of the season with a badly sprained
ankle, On the same program will be
a medley relay race, bringing together those old rivals, Barclay and John
Y. Smith, iA the half mile, as well
as many other outstanding runners.
In the field events, Martin, McCrimmon and Agnew will demonstrate
their respective prowess.
On March 2 the annual Inter-faculty meet will be held when Arts,
Science and Agriculture will vie with
each other for supremacy. A week
later the inter-clnss meet comes off,
and In this competition the upper
year.*? all vow that the 'Super-Class'
team of Arts '37 will not repeat its
track victories of last fall.
Powerful Team
From the results of these two meets
the team t_ represent U.B.C. against
tho College of Puget Sound will be
chosen. The meet with this College
promises to be the outstanding event
of the year's program.
On   three   other   occasions   Varsity
teams    have    competed    with    this
southern school and each time they
have been defeated by a slight margin.   This year the result should be
different,  and  Coach  Dixon   is con-
i firlent  that  he  has a  squad  coming
| up that  will   not   only   defeat   the
j Pii£?et Sounders but will hold its own
with any team in the Northwest.
J Notlc Reps.
Class Athletic Reps, are reminded
, that tho names for the Arts '20 Relay
teams must'be turned in to Sid Swift
or to the Ubyssey immediately. This
race depends on their co-operation
and U is hoped that they will not
fail in th-ir duty.
Tomorrow at 3 p.m. Varsity Soccermen will be "at home" to Regents
at Kerrisdale Park (41st and Larch),
in a V. & D. 1st Division fixture.
Although the teams have not met for
n couple of years, owing to the Regent;:' wanderings, they will nevertheless be well-matched tomorrow. The
Regents are at present a point ahead
of Varsity in the league standings, but
Varsity have a game in hand, and are
in a position to overtake their opponents.
Close Struggle
Regents drew with the strong Renfrew Argyles at the beginning of the
year, as did Varsity not so long ago;
therefore a close struggle is practically assured.
However, with Regents' bad loss to
the Monument last week, and with
Jimmy Gemmell's departure to the
Westminster Royals, Varsity will be
slight favourites to take the tussle. In
fact, Bill Creamer, the Students' manager, is positive that his boys will
bring back the proverbial bacon this
time. "If only the forwards click,"
he said, "we're a cinch to win. Our
.quad is better balanced."
Re Change
In consultation with coach Dr. Todd,
Creamer has decided to re-shuffle the
forwards and the halfbacks.   Costain,
who performed at centre last week,
will be switched to left-half and Stewart,   who   usually   holds  down   that |
berth, to inside-right.   Kozoolin is the ,
new choice for centre.    The rest of I
the team will be the same.
Line
The complete line-up, then, will be
a- follows: Greenwood, goal; Waugh
and McGill, fullbacks; Thurber, Wolfe,
and Costain, halves; Smith or Sutherland, Stewart, Kozoolin. MacDougall,
and Todd. lorwards.

Jr. Soccerites To Meet
Burnaby A.C. Saturday
The Juniors will meet Burnaby Athletic on Saturday, the game to take
place on the Varsity Campus at 3 p.m.
In the previous game with this team,
the Thunderbirds managed to pound
out a 5-all draw. This, incidentally,
i.s the most goals the Blue and Gold
.quad have scored in any one game.
Thc manager is worried over the condition of two of his star players, Alan
Lloyd and Hugh Godard, who were
injured last week, but he hopes they
wil). have recovered by Saturday.
Team will be selected from following: Darwin, Orme, Lloyd, Moodie,
Atwater, Denne. Godard, Bunn, Irish,
Bardwell, Loat and Chester.
Education And Sc. 35
Draw In Playoff Soccer
In the opening game ot the best-
out-oi'-three series for Interclass Soccer supremacy. Education held the
galloping Science 35 to a scoreless
draw on Wednesday noon.
The Teachers opened with half their
players in the strip room, but had a
full eleven by half-time. In spite of
this the Redshirts failed to break
through the opposition, owing chiefly
to the fine defensive work of Vollans.
Russell, and West, the trio that stood
out throughout.
The second stanza produced even
more thrills and spills than the first,
both teams having narrow escapes in
front of goal. Goumeniouk and Yip
were easily the best ror the Science-
men, though their backs were also
