DISCUSSION
NEXTWEEK
Heavy Agenda At
Annual Meeting
Unfinished business will be
the order of the day at the
annual Alma Mater meeting
to be held on March 24 or 31.
Aa yet lt ls not oertain as to
which date, or day between,
the meeting will take place,
but the matters which must
be brought forward either by
members of Council or from
the floor are clearly outlined
by events that have been
leading up to the meeting.
PASS  SYSTSM
Firat, a report on the Paas System, as Anally approved by university offlcials, will be given by
Oould. He will tell of the developments ln the scheme since it was
laat presented to the students ln
November.
A seoond matter of Importance
Is the Stadium.    Although  little
haa been said about thla projaot,
a detailed  plan  of some  sort Is
vory  likely  to  be   presented  by
either   Carey  or   Gould.     It   waa
part of the  polloy  set down by
the  Counoil  that  aome  form  of
permanent stadium be built thle
year, and announcement of completed plana, expected earlier In
the year, la now overdue.
After all the talk during the Juat-
completed  campaign,  it ls  certain
that  Council  will  be  aaked  to  explain the Union Building situation.
Actually, the matter Is not in the
hands  of  the  present  student  administrators, but the student body
looks to them for a report on the
progress of the scheme that caused
the campaign of last year.    "What
has happened to our money?" they
are asking,  with  no answer forthcoming so far.
LBTT  MAY COMB
It is not improbable that Oould
will ask some of the non-student
backers of the Union Building, such
as Col. Sherwood Lett, to come out
to the campus and talk to the A.
M.S. meeting. Thia move would bo
be successful, particularly if the
future ot the matter bb well as its
preaent state was explained.
New   business   that  might  come
up at the meeting cannot be fore
caat, nor la lt likely to be important.    It must be remembered that
the Co-op House popped up at the
last   annual   meeting,   caualng   a
great   deal   more   discussion   than
was expeoted. At the present time,
however, no item of major importance seems  to be  in the wind.
Annual reports will take up a
great   doal   of  the   time   ef  the
meeting, aa they alwaya do. The
newly-elected Counoil will be introduced,  and  the   ceremony   of
handing    over   the    gavel    from
Oould to  Carey will  be  held.
Announcement of the date of the
meeting  will  be made  as  soon  as
possible, the Ubyssey was informed
by Oould  this  week.    Notices  will
be   posted,  and   it  Is  essential   for
a full attendance in order to have
the   several   important   matters   on
the  agenda discussed  properly.

CANADIAN
LITERATURE
Speaking in Arts 203 Tuesday
noon, William Lawson, editor of
the "New Frontier," gave an account of the new trends in literature, declaring that Canada must
keep abreast of the changes in other countries if her literature is to
develop.
Asserting that moat new writ-
are ally themaelvea with one of
the  radloal   political   movamanta,
the   apaaker   eatlmated   that   al-
moat ovary writer today oan  be
olaaalfled aa progreaalve or reactionary.
One of the reasons why Canada
has   no   great   literature   ls   that
"Canadian   authors   are   not   interested ln the social field.    Canadian
Literature,   as  represented   by  the
Canadian   A u t h o r a'   Association
makes no attempt to react to the
changes in other countries.    They
must change their point of view if
they are going to develop."
Mr. Lawson was Introduced by
Prof. A. F. B. Clark, who spoke for
a few mlnuteB on the need for Canadian Journals of opinion.

Political Leaders
Air Their Creeds
During Debate
Ladner, Lefeaux Speak
On Campus Thursday
In Novel Debate
Thursday noon the Parliamentary Forum successfully initiated
a new activity in their program,
when Leon Ladner, K.C., and W. W.
Lefeaux engaged in a spirited and
Interesting debate before an audience of some 200 students.
Following the lines of ths fsm-
oua Oxford Union, whioh brings
out statesmen to debate before
the atudenta, the exeoutive arranged thla enoounter between
two able representatives of opposing political  parties  In  8. C.
OEPENDS ON CITIZEN*
Upholding the affirmative ot the
resolution: "Resolved that the socialism ot Conservatism ls adequate to solve the economic problems of tbe province," Mr. Ladner
opened the debate.
He maintained that the solving
of our problems depended on the
type of cltisen In the province —
free from class prejudice and hatred and devoted to the atate. Affirming that human nature is fundamentally selfish, he denied that
an altruistic government based on
a selfish citlsenry could be of practicable value.
Mr.   Ladner elted  the  aoclalla-
tle  maaauraa  already  Introdueed
by the old partlaa, and atreased
the faot that we are alwaya limited by the nature of our financial   position   In   bringing   about
reform.
Mr. Lefeaux affirmed that if men
are    fundamentally    selfish    it   le
largely   through   the  exigencies  of
our present system.     This  competitive   element   had   originated   in
conditions   of   scarcity,   but   today
our  resources   and  production  are
virtually limited.
PUBLIC   WANT8   REFORM
He decried the socialistic measures of the old parties, maintaining that these had come ln ln spite
of the Conservatives and not
through their efforts, years after
public opinion had demanded reform and years after the government had bad the power to bring
them in.
Each speaker had ten minutes'
rebuttal. Professor Day was In
the chair, and expressed his thanks
to the speakers at the conclusion
ot the debate.

BULKY TOTEM GLITTERS
WITH NOVEL FEATURES
U. of S. Considers
Our Form of Voting
UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHB-
WAN, March 11 (WIPU)—-A apecial committee of the S.R.C. has
been considering revisions for the
constitution, not the least of whioh
ls the adoption of the preferential
system of voting. This is to be used
tor the presidential election, because of the importance of the office. The reason tor this system
is to ensure that the winning candidate will have a majority of the
votes cast, instead of merely a plurality.    The    choices    are    to    be
announced.     Speeches   by   all   edi
tors. Compulsory attendance for all I weighted and it will be compulsory
Publications  board  members. I to indicate all choices.
. . EDITORIAL . .
Applications will now be received for membership in the International Relations Club, addressed to
Fronla Snyder, Women's Arts Letter Rack, before Saturday, March
27. Interested students are invited
to attend the final meeting of the
club on  March  81.
WANTED—MORE   TIME
Dated the fifteenth of March, a questionnaire seeking
information as to summer occupations .of students has been
issued by the University authorities. The real purpose of
the questionnaire is to gather information in order to
investigate the practicability of lengthening the University
session.
It is the majority of student opinion, particularly in the
faculty of Arts, that a longer session is greatly to be desired,
and that the only valid objection is the fact that some
students find it convenient and others find it almost necessary to earn as much as possible in the summer, and that
a longer University year would cut down their earning
power.
The balance to be judged, then, is between the fact on
the one hand that an addition to the session would be of
far more than proportional additional benefit to each and
every student, and the fact, on the other hand, that such
an addition would work a hardship on the few students who
find lengthy summer work necessary to finance their
education.
It would seem that the greater need is for a longer
session. The Ubyssey hopes that the University authorities
will be able to bring this into effect, and at the same time
be able somehow to finance a few more bursaries for those
who may be deemed worthy among the "working" students.

Unusual Chance For
Year In China Being
Offered By Lingnan

of B. C. The students applying
must be of at least second class
standing, and good all-around character. A committee composed of
Faculty and students will make the
selection.
Lingnan is one of the highest
rated universities tn China, and
full credit for work done there will
be given by the University of B.C.
The lectures are given ln English
and the professors are well educated.

Smith or Bob McMaster at the S.
CM. room, 312 Auditorium Building. The last day for application
ia  March 81st.
Long Noon To Stay
Says Faculty Committee
According to a letter received by
the Students' Council from Faculty this week the hour and a half
noon recess will be continued for
the session 1937-88. Durin gthe
Brynelsen regime the period was
extended from an hour after the
#Mma Mater Society had requested
the change by a majority vote.
Considerable discussion has been
provoked this year, with many
holding to the view that ln practice the extended recess has been
more a waste of time than anything
else. Nevertheless for at least another year the "experiment" will
continue.
The engineering Institute of
Canada will hold their annual
Dinner at the Hotel Grosvenor on
Monday at 6.30. Following the dinner, Mr. F. Vernon Jones will address the meeting on "How Construction Affects Insurance Rates."
The price will be 75 cents.
Film Education Is
Experts9 Topic
Director of Visual Work
In B. C. Here Monday
James Pollock, Visual Education
Director for the schools of B. O,
will choose the motion picture as
his subject when be speaks under
the auspices of the University
Film Society ln Arts 100 on Monday.
GREAT POSSIBILITIES
In an interview with the Ubyssey
last week, Mr. Pollock outlined the
work he has been doing in the
schools where the motion picture
is being increasingly utilized as a
medium for teaching, and spoke of
the great possibilities of the motion picture in the field of general
education.
"The picture will be of special
benefit to the University," stated
Mr. Pollock. "It will be a revolutionary substitute for the professor
with his piece of chalk Illustrating
the subject to his students. The
student will be able to get a much
clearer conception of his subject as
he sees as well as hears every aspect of it in minute detail," he continued.
Turning  from  the   motion  picture  In  relation to  eduoatlon  to
apeak of aome of the more reoent
Improvemanta in the graphic art,
Mr. Pollock made aome pertinent
remarks   ooneernlng   technicolor,
and the relatlonahlp between the
atage and the talklea.
"The   movie   allows   for   greater'
variety  than the  stage,"  continued
Mr.   Pollock.    "On  the   stage  only
one   idea   can   be   introduced   in   a
scene,   but   on   the   screen   every
scene offers some new and  different pictorial composition."
BIG GAMES
SLATED FOR
WEEK END
3 Major Teams
Will Show
By  FRANK  PERRV
The boiling cauldron of
sport overflows in a whirlpool
of activity this week-end as
Varsity teams enter into the
most significant two days of
athletic activity of the '36-'37
season of campus sport.
MAJOR  SPORTS   BUSY
Ou three Important sport fronts
Varsity teams go into action with
baaketball, Bnglish rugby and track
in strategic roles.
Tonight at 9.15 In the Varsity
Oym,  tha   Van  Vllet  hoop  troop
goea over the top In the premier
eneeunter with  the  Capital  Olty
Oomlnoea.    This first game  la a
culmination   of  Varsity's  emerging   victorious   over   Province   In
the  Inter-olty   bssket  tight.    It's
the first of s proposed five-game
series for the  basketball  orown
of B. C. with the winner moating
the   Eastern   ehamplons  for the
hoop  laurels of the  Dominion.
And as the Domino-Varsity series
draws near, campus opinion seems
to indicate a VarBlty victory.    Yes,
Varsity  preferred  1b  being  quoted
at something over par around the
campuB and even the anti-Varslty-
1st,   Chuck   Jones, 1 s   putting   his

game.
MILLER CUP GAME
Tomorrow at 3.16 at Brockton
Point Oval the final game in the
Miller Cup contest will be played
with U.B.C. and All-Blacks contending for honors in this belated playoff. If Varsity wins, the Miller
Cup ls thelra for another year, but
if the Black men emerge on the
top of the heap after tomorrow's
match another game will be necessary to complete the series. As
the teams stand now, Varsity ls
one game up on the North Shore
All-Blacks.
Although  Jim   Pyle   and   Strat
Leggatt will be missing from tho
Varaity  roster  at  the  game  tomorrow, the team will be strengthened by suoh redoubtsble rugger stara aa Howie MoPhee, Jim
Hmrm*r,   BUI   Watson  and  Tom

Oval,   Thunderbird   tracksters  will
prance onto the greensward against
the College of Puget Sound ln the

OET OUT AND 8HOW INTEREST
The annual Alma Mater meeting will take place within
a week or bo although the actual date has not been aet. In
the past lt has often been necessary to postpone such meetings because there was no quorum present. An absolute
lack of interest in student affairs thla past year, demonstrated forcibly by the four acclamations to Council, threatens
to bring about the same condition again.
But with auch matters as the Stadium and Union building due for discussion, it would aeem almost Impossible that
the meeting would have to be adjourned. In the cause of
continued atudent control of student affairs, a condition not

Into the wastepaper basket, four
dallies peep forth, Washington
taking the lead with a front page
makeup which novor falls to Intrigue the boys ot the Ubyssey.
Within its four pages, sometimes
Increased to six, news is balanced
by a wispy oolumn called "Le Premier Whisper," o f f e ring little
flakes of campus gossip, and by
other light verbal snatches at a
multitude of fraternity and sorority
affairs which must give Washing-
tonlans a lot of Interesting reading . . . imagine a Mary Anne column replete wtth names coming
out dally to the extent of three or
four columns!
Further down the coast, U.C.Lt.A.
Dally Bruin reaches for Washington's tail with a cosmopolitan publication which boasts ot a United
Press Wire Service. Other American papers coming to us are tho
U. of N. Sagebrush trom the divorce capital In Nevada, a weekly;
the Puget Sound Trail, weekly from
Tacoma, and the Idaho Argonaut,
from Moscow, Idaho.
CANADA
Two dallies, a French paper trom
Laval at Quebec, and eight other
publications running on a weekly
and twice-weekly basis, plus various Vanoouver high aohool papers,
and the odd monthly from the prairies and the marltlmea make up
the Canadian quota.
McOlll Dally, ot peace ballot and
riot fame, ably steered into adventurous chanels by the enterprising
John MacDonald, combining probing editorial with balanced newa,
general and sport, with flashing enterprise in feature writing, takes
the lead amongst its British brethren. Toronto Varsity, dally, tllla
a tough Job trying to embrace sev-
eral colleges and gives a composite news presentation with a goodly proportion of feature.
The marltimes give us the
Brunswlcklan which the U. of N.
B. politely calls tbe "Weekly News
and Literary Journal." We wondered about this so we read further
than the masthead and discovered
this . . . Sweet Young thing: "Is
there much graft In the army?"
C.O.T.C: "Sure, even the bayonets
are  fixed!"
Others amongst this tribe are the
Dalhousie Oasette from Halifax,
declared to be the oldest college
paper In America, founded In I860.
Reading it, we suspected something! A companion piece called
The Argosy weekly comes from
Saokvlllo, N. B.

whllo the U. of Western Oasette
goes In tor a balanced front page,
rhyming or blank verae heads and
faoulty consultants.
OUR FALSI
Of the prairies wo already all
know muoh. Alberta, Manitoba and
Saakatohewan furnish us with
plenty ot copy, a really splendid
assortment, and a few opportunities for dirty digs. All three are
published twice weekly along the
sames lines as the Ubyssey with
the Oateway at Alberta and tho
Sheaf at Saskatoon vlelng tor honors In the field of tho moro sensational makeup. Manitoba proceeds,
usually, on a more dignified path.
All in all, the year haa provided
lota ot fun. We have had mall from
Austria and Poland asking for exchanges, and the odd paper from
South Africa and the "Honl Soit"
from New Zealand . . . and altogether, everything haa been ducky.
Now, I lay down my typewriter
gently till next year, with this excerpt from the Manltoban. Teacher at Sunday School Picnic: "Now,

Seymour at
Dunaunutr
SEY. 2088
I STOOD by the bus stand late
one night last week, waiting for
one of the infrequent chariots to
take me home after an evening of
tiring essay research. I had Just
missed the bus that had taken
most ot the late Library students
away, and was alone, under a starless Bky.
Across the way, like some huge
monster frowning down upon me,
was the shadow that was the Science Building. Rough-hewn stone
that can be seen by day ls invisible under the blanket ot the
dark, leaving but a lump ot extra-
blackness ln Its place. I could
hardly see the Junction of the sky
with the root line, so well did they
blend.
To the north, the Library, the
only lighted building, pushed its
square form Into space. Lights,
through amber windows, gave the
impression that here was some unreal castle, some fanciful vision
that was seen by weary eyes.
Tbe other buildings on the campus, at night, take on new ahapes.
They appear as squat, rambling
structures, not unlike a ohanoe arrangement of child's blocks. Nothing beautiful, not even anything
huge or inspiring, yet something
strange attracts one who gases
about him long enough.
I took a stroll around the campus, as I have often done before
in the shadowa of the evening.
Theae buildings, so quiet now, so
serene and unbothered, have no
easy life.
In them, learning and teaching
goes on day after day, aummer and
winter. Men and women, young,
eager, and happy, sit and hear of
the wisdom ot the ages, tbo great
literature of other times, the secret
troaaurea of other tonguea, and the
practical knowledge that is necessary for life in the modern world.
What goes on In these buildings,
now dark and quiet, la needed by
the world If it ia going to progreas.
Yet there are those who hate the
progress that comes through the
efforts of those who leave these
buildings. There are those who
would tear down the campus, who
would disturb the atmosphere of
learning, and who would oast out
of society those who dally sit in
classes. Yes, the buildings are
having a hard struggle; they will
still pass through more trouble before they are finally allowed to
live ln peace—If ever.
•        •        *
FUNNY, the wandering thoughts
that pass through your mind on
a quiet evening. I found myself
thinking of graduates ot other
days, of those to come, and of the
men who labor here, giving themselves to the Instruction of others.
I thought too of those who would
never get a chanoe to enter these
buildings. Who was the most fortunate, they or I?
Then, would another war Boon
drive the students from their books
to the butchering ground? Where
would all ot their efforts go then,
and why oould auch things happen
in tbe world? The night was so
peaceful, the mind so- topsy-turvy.
I was back at the bus stand,
looking at the buildings again, my
eyes playing tricks with the imagination as I peered into the darkness. The bus came, and I turned
to look back at the campus. The
lights in the Library suddenly went
out, and the whole soene was
nothing but blackness.
The change brought a new
thought to my mind. What if the
lights in all of the university libraries were turned off? What it
the world moved Into another Dark
Ages, the result of war and human
thoughtlessness? Perhaps the only
thing that can stop such a chaos is
the Influence of those who atudy
under those same library lights ln
every part ot the world.
Popsters Have Orchestra
Trouble—Call Off Meet
Cancellation ot the pep meet
called for last Wednesday was not
due to the laxness of the Pep Club,
officials of that organisation told
the Ubyssey. The orchestra that
had been engaged for the event
was unable to come to the campus
that day. and did not Inform the
Pep Club until Wednesday morning.
Efforts to obtain other entertainment were of no avail, and it waa
decided to call the meeting off,
rather than to risk putting on a
poor and unrehearsed show.
FRENCH  BANQUET
On Thursday, March 25, the
French clubs ot the oampus will
hold their annual banquet. The
time ls 6 p.m. sharp, the place the
Oables, and the price, 40 cents. All
others interested are invited to attend. Please notify any member of
the exeoutive, Evelyn Frisk, secretary-treasurer of La Canadlenne, or

Random Ramblings
BY
THE 8TUDENT   PRINCE
TUTORS
A candidate in the recent Council campaign made the startling
statement that he promised, If
elected, that he would do his utmost, etc., etc., to see that the
possibilities of a tutorial system
would be fully investigated. Etc.
It was only an election promise,
of course, and now that the election is over lt would be unsporting
to pin the thought down to its originator. Nevertheless, it ls worth
considering.
There is undoubtedly a connection between our American leoture
system and the abysmally infantile
level ot undergraduate thought on
this continent.
Instead of being the centre for
progressive thinking, the university has become a haven for prolonged childhood. At an age when
grandpa was made flrst mate on a
bluenose clipper, and grandma was
having her third offspring In her
own household, the average undergraduate still thinks In terms of
homework, parties, puppy love,
clothes or basketball.
The fault is not his, ot course.
Orandpa and grandma would have
been the same under the circumstances.
"WHAT THI8 COUNTRY
NBBOS . .
It ls simply the result ot an educational system that keeps tho
student busy between the ages ot
six and twenty-two at the task of
neatly filling copious notebooks
and Memorising the oulture thus
acquired for examination purposes.
The leoture Is an out-worn Institution of the Middle Ages, whon
books, excepting tho classics, wero
soarce and expensive to print.
Scholars gathered at certain points
to exchange ideaa, and to listen to
authorities ln various Holds.
But books are no longer scarce.
With all due respect to our learned
Faculty, I auggest that the best
ideas are on library shelves, and
that the best way to absorb them
is not to write them ln a hook, but
to discuss them ln small groups.
To save time and energy a suggested course of study would naturally be necessary, but sucb. supervision could be handled by any
conscientious tutor with a B.A. degree. The more learned sagea
could be reserved for Honorary
Lecturers, and could write books
ln  between  times.
CO-BDUCATION   OR
MONASTICISM?
Our lack of the Old World atmosphere would be our chief obstacle to such a system. (Ignoring,
of course, the mundane matter of
finances.) U. B. C.'s proximity to
city lite, and the constant round
ot social functions would distract
Socrates himself from any but the
most rigidly enforced philosophising.
Being a male, I naturally blame
the opposite sex for this worldli-
ness within our walla. Granted,
there are scholars among our coeds, too, but there are multitudes
who were attracted to U. B. O.
solely by its sooial lite, and who
do not hesitate to say so. You
can't blame a girl for not wanting
to stay at home, but on the other
hand, are we mice or are we men?
Is this a university or a finishing
school?
DON'T   BB  A   SUCKBR
The April "Esquire" contains a
story, "The College Scab," which
ought to be put on the compulsory
reading list for all men students.
Not because of Its literary meiita,
but becauae it may save somebody
a lot of time, money, aelf respect,
and possibly a broken head.
It is quite possible that B. C.
will aee several labor disputes this
summer, ln view of the reluctance
of wage scales to follow the rising
tide of business prosperity. It so,
there will be openings for ambitious college boys as strike breakers.
The pay la good, it's a dandy
way to show your aristocratic contempt for the mosses, and the only
qualification necessary is that you
should be low enough to take the
Job. You don't have to do it well;
you merely have to look busy ln
fcrder to break the morale ot the
strikers.
Smart boys will avoid "scabbing"
as a bad investment, however.
Even if the strike succeeds, you
are blacklisted with all trade
unions. Last spring, for example,
a number ot students who bad secured work with the B. C. Electric
were dismissed when the conductors' union found they were on the
blacklist trom the waterfront atrike
the previous summer.
You can be hard-boiled about It,
and say that cash is oash, and
ethics be damned. Only don't bo
surprised if the strikers get hard-
boiled and unethical with you some
dark night Proletarians and elephants never forget. And you havo
a long time to live yet.

It is coming soon. The greatest TOTiM of all time. Just crammed
full of beautiful pictures. Certainly a tribute to ABIR'S STUDIO as
well as to Editor Jim Beveridge. We know that when you have seen
the 1937 Totem you will realize what a great work Aber's has done for
the University. Over a thousand pictures in less than three months, all
taken right here on the campus.   Monumental, Isn't It?
And the pictures are of the well-known Aber quality, but sold at
bargain prices.  We would like to warn you that these prices won't continue forever, so you had better order your senior and junior pictures now
before the Totem comes out.  Don't loose your chance!

Ted Shawn Dancers To
Show Here April 15
"—Wlna publio and press from
seaboard to seaboard, 1b eulogised
by headmasters and college presidents, blessed by clergymen, apostrophised by poets, painted by artists, and even acclaimed by Rotary." So states an article in "The
Atlantic Monthly" for November,
1936, on the "All-Man Performance
of Ted Shawn and his men dancers."
Mr. Shawn's pioneer work in reviving the ancient art of dancing
for men has a lasting importance
and value for every Btudent and
every athlete, every musician and
classical scholar; and so great an
interest in this field has been
aroused that many American
schools and colleges have Instituted training for such work.
Shawn himself is a scholar, and
the program which he and his
troupe will present here on April
16 at the Brnpress Theatre ls the
result of years of study, travel and
research in all parts of the world.

New Totem Is Youngest
Beveridge Brain Child
By RBOOY HIOOS
Jim Beveridge, as noted tor bio originality aa for hla organ*
lalng and creative ability, will soon bring forth his youngest
braln-ohlld into an unsuspeotlng world. Conceived and formed
almost entirely In the tortile Beveridge brain, the 1036-87 Totem
is about to takes its plaoe among the moro colossal masterpleoes
of a prollflo ago. A glanoo at Its amasing,parent would aeem
to bo In tho oarda.
It haa been aald that "Without humor would Beveridge bo
Beveridge?" Tho question is rhetorical, also superfluous, it
presupposes an Impossible situation.   No humor, no Beveridge.
We would Ilk* to add, and vice versa, but find tho phrase inconsistent with Innate reportorlal honesty.    .
Jim has brought light and subtle
touch to every university activity      |BH___________________-l''£*$£
in which ho has engaged, thereby
delighting and possibly instructing
his observers and accomplices. His
Inimitable  manner  as  a yokel  ln
"She Stoops to Conquer," produood
by the Players Club last year, was
a Joy for all time.    His work as _____
university    Province    reporter    la      l____PH___________iiW:' .- ~_j#.'S
done with a certain finesse refreshing ln the often prosalo medium of
the press. Ab Totem editor he has
kept the Publications Board ln a
state ot continual laughter bordering on frenzy.
Working In a smother of telephone calls, messages, and other
notifications, chiefly emanating from Aber'a Studio and Cleland
and Kent, Jim la usually on the telephone, on a typewriter, or
on a bus preparing to leave for some mythical placo. With so
many varied responsibilities on his shoulders, ho achieves the
Impossible, bringing order out ot chaos. Dramatlo oiitloiam Is
at present his only form of quiet and unflurrled enjoyment.
Jack Boothe, Province cartoonist, haa loft a magnificent
monument to tho greatness of Beveridge on tho east Pub wall.
Somehow It reeks of personality. To those who know the subjeot. two typical quotations should produce a mental imago ot
startling clarity. One is: "Yes Indeed, my little plum bun."
There Is an upward nasal drawl on tho "bun." The other Is: "I
can't underatand It."    With this, we leave you.

"Lamentation," ln whioh an emotion is graphically and movingly
made vivid.
Comedy is supplied by "Satyrlc
Festival Dance," and by the number billed ob "Four Casual Developments."
Two of the most outstanding
portrayals are "Amerloan Provincials" and "Chronicle." The former ia divided into two parts: "Act
ot Piety" and "Act of Judgment."
In these. Miss Graham comments
with ironic significance upon the
spirit ot Puritan America.
"Chronicle" deals with the question of war, and la powerfully suggestive, an interpretation full ot
Implications.

However, notwithstanding, etc.,
Varsity's supercharged basketeers
are gunning for a victory ln this

and that historical five-man battle

want a revenge triumph!
Although    Coach    Maury    Van
