Institute Hears
Italian Speakers
There emerged from the tragedy
d th? Great War a new spirit of national consciousness for a new Italy."
With this Signonna Amy Bernardy
introduced her discussion of tho tremendous strides taken in Italy since
the v/ar, especially in the field of
social reconstruction, before the Vancouver Institute on Saturday night.
Discounting the idea of a great revolution, Signora Bernardy stated
tot the changes made in the govern-
ncnt of Italy aft.T the war wciv
.r.ade by the Kins v. hen he appointed
."■Tassolini. und that at all times tho
r.otiiirchy  was   of   prime   considcra-
'..311.
There was no rift between tho
dlwrch ami State, which were com-
;duly reconciled. Mussolini's five
>c.irs of experiment were more suc-
iossful than many well-meaning outsiders would have liked, stated Sig-
norina Bernardy before proceeding to
her real topic "Social Service in
July."
There are three main linos of service work. The first is the care of
women and infants, chiefly in regard
io health and homing. Then the care
cf children is observed. They ore
trained with plenty of amusement and
• little light wori:. Tho only compulsions arc washing their faces, and
ping to school, This training is augmented by censorship of lurid details
ct crime and sex in the press.
The third main service work is tlie
wrvice to the working classes. There
is a National Club to instruct these
people in the use of leisure time, it
.< divided into 80 departments: sport,
festivities, intellectual training, folklore, and historical consciousness arc
i few examples.
In this social service no one has |
any personal ambition, and everyone
-cl[,s towards a common good. Such
i regime is made possible by discipline service, and co-operation.
Croizat Lectures
After Signorina Rcrnardy's lecture,
'in? audience followed Signor Eugcnio
P. Croizat in a trip through Italy. He
jpoke first of Sicily where the Italian
language originated over 100 years
igo, in the court of Frederick at Palmer.. He followed this with a de-
sription of Capri.
Rome, two hours and ten minutes j
-tra Naples, is unrecognizable as its
:ld self. It is embellished and recon-
-ructed. In the interior of St. Peter's
in Vatican City is found Angclo's "La
Pieta."
The Vatican possesses tho largest
group of buildings in existence, containing over 11,000 rooms.
In Assisi In tho Umftrian hills are
found works of Giotto. Here is found
a picture of St. Francis preaching to
the birds. In Padua Giotto's best
frescoes arc found. In Pisa are found
more of Giotto's frescoes, including
his "Creation of Eve," and a frescoe
of Dante, of whom he was a contemporary.
Art of Florence and Venice
In thc Florentine museum are seen
many works of tho masters. Signor
Croizat mentioned briefly Pierro de
la Concesco, who introduced perspective into Italian art; Botticelli, whose
madonnas ure all blondes; Bacci, Andrea del Sarto, Couruis, and several
other great masters,
Tho (front church of Vcnlco is St.
Marks, In tho interior oro found
beautiful marbles and mosaics. Thc
marble columns permit thc light of
t candle to bo seen through them.
Thc most beautiful courtyard in Italy
is found in the Doge's palace. In
Venice also are found paintings by
Tintoretto, Titian, and Georgioni,

Drama Festival
Eliminations Set
For Local Stage
The drama fes'ival eliminations of
B. C. will bo he'd this year in the
University Theatre, Miss Dorothy
Somerset, the Players' Club director,
announced on Saturday. The adjudicator will be Rupert Harvey, distinguished English critic, and thc dates
March 1, 2, and 3.
Miss Somerset disclosed this in thc
course of adjudicating private eliminations at the Little Theatre, Friday
and Saturday. Six plays were judged
by her, with Professor and Mrs. Wood,
and thc final choice was "Elizabeth,
thc Queen,' 'Act III, and "Boccacio's
Untold Tale."
The first of these is high tragedy
of Elizabeth and Ihe rebel Essex in
the tower of London. Despite a mutual love, their clashing ambitions
force both to accept his impending
execution as inevitable. Criticism of
tho production wa.'< limited to failure
to ciitahllNh utmosp'ioro promptly, and
to anachronisms.
"Boccacio's Untold Tale," tho other
choice, is a lurid play of the year
of the Great Plague, and deals with
the conseqences of love faced with
physical distortion wrought by tho
Plague. Criticism was limited to
lighting faults at the outset, and a too
prolonged climax.
Other entries were "The Mask," a
violent modern tragedy drawing inspiration from the same idea as "Boccacio's Untold Tale"—the effect of
sudden deformity on love; "X Equals
O, A Night on thc Trojan Walls", by
John Drinkwatcr, a beautiful poetic
play, depicting bitterly mutual slaughter, in the dead of night, the effect
weakened by division into 4 scenes;

Responsibility Spread
Over Wide Area
Very few people realize the amount
of time and labor which must be expended before such a production as
the Mikado can be ready for public
performance. Of course the members of the cast ore rewarded by the
applause of enthusiastic audiences but
there must be, of necessity, several
members of thc s-iciety who are willing to work hard without the prospect cf public recognition.
A glance at tho list of active com-
mitce.'i connected with the production will bear up this statement.
There are production, dramatic, vocal,
orchestral, costume, advertising, ticket
and stage committees. The members
of these groups are wholly responsible
for their particular aspect of the production.
C. Haydn Williams, as director of
the society, is responsible for the
presentation as a whole. The time
he has spent on ;aoh of these departments is incalcuablo . The musical
aspects of the program is a direct result of his labor. Mr. Williams has
acted as director of 9 of the society's
14 annual productions.
Co-operating closely with Mr. Williams is E. V. Young who has directed
thc Mikado several times in the past.

i/ADV      1
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1934
TO BE OR NOT TO BE
With no uncertain voice the student body
of Queen's University have expressed their
disapproval of the existence of fraternities on
their campus.
The chief reason given for this dislike was
the fear that fraternities would be a menace
to the university spirit, of which Queen's is so
proud.
At the present time there is a definite
feeling on the campus of this university that
our famed university spirit is now wasted
away. The meagre attendance at major games
would'tend to support this idea.
Are fraternities to blame ? It is claimed
by many that membership in a fraternity or
sorority divides the interests of the student
and diverts the energies into other channels.
For many students their whole campus life is
wrapped up in their fraternity.
This may be a good thing for the individual, but it is a distinct menace to university
life as a whole. No sooner does a student join
a fraternity than his university pin, of which
he should be proud, is superceded by a more
ornate combination of Greek letters.
Some effort should be made by fraternities
to utilize their energies for the benefit of the
university as a whole and not for a small
clique. It can not be denied that the Greeks
have more spirit than anyone on the campus.
The whole university should reap the benefits.
ALL HANDS ON DECK!
TWis week the Musical Society is presenting "The Mikado" on the stage of the University Auditorium. This presentation represents
a lot of hard work and endeavour on the part
of members of the Society, and the finished
production is one which every student on the
campus should go to see.
Wednesday night will be exclusively for
students, and for this night tickets may be obtained for the small price of thirty-five cents.
At this price, everyone can afford to see the
production.
We suggest that fraternities and other organizations reserve blocks of seats, for the performance later in the week.
A SUGGESTION
It is becoming increasingly difficult for the
audience to hear the speaker distinctly at
meetings in the auditorium due to the loud
charging of the thundering herd out in the
halls.
In spite of the warning signs there seems
to be no hope of abatement of this nuisance.
Our suggestion is that the graduating
classes or some philanthropic organization on
the campus devote their surplus funds to the
purchase of sound-proof linoleum of some substance like that used in the library.
The only stipulation is that it must be slippery, so the Pub board will still be able to slide
noiselessly into the office.
By ARTHUR MAytC
SWORD-RUNE
In the tense moment between the bending and breaking
When the stars quail, Arcturus, and the cold Pleiades,
When thc night is a taut bowstring, and the frightened
earth is shaking
To the tramp of the marching legions borne on the
breeze,
To the march of the bright legions whose captain is
Death ....
Look ye on the sword-rune, and the message it carryeth:
'True steel am I: flame In thine hand will I be
But If thine heart fail, fighter, have no trust in me.'
WAR IS SWELL
As a rule, Peter-the-Ape and I pursue our
foolish but satisfying philosophy of life with
little thought for those weightier matters that
edge the tongue of the Campus Crab. Now
though, with a big black 'war' shrieking at us
from various signboards about the city, we'd
like to assume the stovepipe hat and dark
glasses of the crusading reformer for a paragraph or two.
Just what do you think of this wave of
war publicity that has been lapping against the
public consciousness these many months? Is
it good or bad, and if good, what purpose does
it serve ? The answer, at least that heard most
frequently, is that it acts as a deterrent to a
brash and romantic younger generation who,
knowing nothing of actual warfare, are prepared to plunge blithely into the next major
catastrophe that comes up. A fine, idealistic
notion; and if every writer or editor were a
Nichols or a Stallings, perhaps a true one. This
is unfortunately not the case.
The American News follows hard on
Stallings lead with more war pictures, a blatant collection presented, one feels, with no
other intention beyond that of raking in the
publicity dollars. And now our own little
Sun, with a nose for lucrative carrion rivalling
that of any Hearst "yellow" of the last century, offers its contribution. We are to have
tlie official, uncensored record of Canada in
battle, and the Sun can give itself a congratulatory handshake for showing young Vancouver that war is hell.
May this columnist suggest with diffidence
that we have had the exhumed skeleton of '14-
'18 shaken in our faces for long enough, and
that, just as a noble experiment, somebody
might give us a little publicity on the advantages of peace ?
CHANSON D'AVRIL
Here in my arms you lie,
The moon is a golden bow.
The winds are singing low . . ,
Dark Angel, pass us by!
How many nights like this
Until the aching, sweet
Hunger of lips that meet
In one last golden kiss ?
Heather will bloom again
Flowing in purple wine
And the keen stars will shine
On other happy men.
But in my arms you lie,
The moon is a golden bow,
The winds are singing low . . .
Dark Angel, pass us by!

COMING UP—THE MIKADO
"I snitched it out of last week's mass of
spring pottery," confessed Peter, speaking of
the contribution printed above. "I liked it,
even if one can very nearly hum it to the
tune of 'God Save the King.'"
"Hush !" I warned him. "We can't afford
to stage an orgy of criticism with term work
piling up, and our contribution-bin practically
empty. Which reminds me, Peter, can we
spare an evening do you think to hear the
Musical Society put on the Mikado ?"
"We can't," Peter replied, "but we will,
just the same. Remember, Bill, you promised
me months ago that I should see it? I never
have yet, and from what I hear, it's going to be
a howling success."
"A success, Peter," I reproved him. "Leave
off the howling. You've been a literary ape
long enough to know that words must be used |
with discretion. I'm glad to see you so enthusiastic, however, and I hope your enthusiasm
is shared. The quality of the Sunday night
snatches given over the air ought certainly be
recommendation enough to those students who
were listening."

Correspondence
The Anglican Theological College,
19th February, 1934.
The Editor,
The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Although I do not claim to represent the official views either of my
College or the International Relations Group, I thought that a letter
from one who is a member of the
latter and an undergraduate of the
former might help to clear away certain misunderstandings which continue to occupy your correspondence
and Crustacean Column.
Particularly is this possible, since
I was leader for the negative in the
now notorious debate in which my
side defeated the resolution that:
"This House will under no circumstances fight for  their King
or Country,"
The bases of my argument against the
above resolution were these:  that it
called for an absolute pacifism, irrespective of any circumstances which
might    render    defence    imperative;
that as yet the most of us placed
national loyalty  above a loyalty  to
an ideal   (and as yet non-existent)
World State; thus under certain conditions,  war  COULD  yet be  moral
and MIGHT be inevitable. We University students are surely familiar with
the  concepts of morals being evolutionary.
This prepares the way for my second point in this letter: the Christian attitude to war. In what is perhaps the most important Christian
document in regard to war (the
C.O.P.E.C. REPORT   ON   WAR, in
U.B.C. Library), not one, but two
Christian positions are outlined. One
is, that since perfection has not yet
been reached, there were in the past
and may be in the future certain occasions in which war has been and
is still necessary for the development and conservation of Order. The
.econd is that which as yet finds
but few supporters, namely that
war never was and never can be justifiable.
Now, the former position, which
may be called relatively pacifist, is
the only one which I personally could
advocate; I respect absolute pacifists,
but fear that they only provoke their
antithesis. Nevertheless, the relatively pacifist position I hold needs qualification in that one must always re-
a war which was necessary yesterday
might be avoidable today. Therefore
might be avoidable today. The refore,
one is certainly justified in pointing
out to the public ( who finally make
all wars) that today war Is less necessary and more avoidable than say
in 1914, particularly since there exists
today that body called the League
of Nations which is beginning to
place war out of bounds for civilized
nations by providing means of peaceful settlement by processes of Law
and Arbitration.
Thus it was possible for one who
is not an absolute pacifist to support
the work of the International Relations Group, as I did. I saw and see
their work as a real and earnest protest on the part of Youth against the
futility of war in the year 1934. It
was fundamentally a witnessing and
as such young mon were more than
justified in taking part in it.
As to this witnessing being done
before th. churches, this was done
because we have more faith in the
Churches than has "Another Pleb."
In his bondage to the Infallible Book
of Karl Marx, your correspondent
forgets that the churches consist of
"all sorts and conditions of men,"
rather than of mere parsons and a
lot of standard sheep. If they went
wrong in the past, so did the Socialist Parties who almost without exception supported their several war
parties in 1914. He is too dogmatic;
if he would leave the realm of textbook abstractions and study men, he
would see their beauties as well as
their  faults;  none  are  perfect,  but
the Churches are probably more socially efficient than the Young Communists' League. Now, as well as in
the past, the imperfect churches have
gone on working where no others
worked, often blundering, but often
successful. If one wishes to do something rather than to stand criticizing,
one must often work with imperfect
people and organizations. In an evolutionary world, one ceases to expect
present perfection. But—one strives
towards perfection, though stumbling.
Yours truly,
G. H. COCKBURN

Somebody told me when I first
came to Varsity that there are three
things you can't do in the library
and tiiat's smoke, play cards or take
off your shoes but they must of been
fooling because the most mortifying
thing happened. Jane and I were
talking in the libiary both sitting on
the same chair, you know the way
you do about what happened the
night before and what you're doing
tonight and then somebody comes in
that you know and you say something about them and then you talk
about them until somebody else you
know comes in and then you talk
about them. WeU anyway a man
with fluffy brown hair came in the
wing with glasses and of course I
made a crack about him, I would,
and started to sort of titter because
you can't laugh way down deep in
the library, and what should this
person do but come right over and
ask where my library card was and
I thought well of all the cheeky
things because I didn't even know
him and I said I don't know and if
I did it was none of his business.
Well he didn't look straight at me
but just said very coldly I could pack
my things and stay out of the library for a week and then I began
to catch on that Jane was nudging

Dear Snitzy:
I had the BEST time the other night
at a dinner given by the Spring Cold
club. We had warmed-over spinach
and hash and beans, and a turkey
with the SMARTEST red socks on.
We had to talk in Russian all evening, and as though we had a cold. As
if it wasn't hard enough to talk Russian without pretending you have a
cold. Mamie McSnuffle sat next to
me. She was wearing the cleverest
little cheescloth frock with drop
sleeves (they dropped right off) and
a trimming of pen nibs. Really it was
the cutest thing.
And would you believe it but
they're having the Co-Ed at the hotel
this year. I think that's the loveliest
idea, because I was going to take one
of the bell-boys and now he'll be
there anyway.
I think Sciencemen are SIMPLY
HORRID, but keep it a secret Snitzy.
Not one of them asked me to their
old bail but I want anyway and had
the WORST time getting my program
filled. Everyone seemed to be full
up when I asked them for a dance.
Mabel McOUlicuddy has the perkiest little sports hit with a gay little

wobbles when she talks, and a pak
of blue and red ankle socks to match.

unknown undergrad says that only

Pontlac knows Housser door opens,
and still another half-wit who has
not yet been tracked down suggested
as a theme song for the Confectioner's Union.
"The maple bud cur emblem, dear,
The maple bud forever," etc., etc.
This one was timidly suggested but
we can't make up our minds whether
it's worth the effort,
"The waiter at the White Spot
spilled a hot tamale down Molly's
neck. It felt hot temale.
Ouch!
We asked a bright sophomore the
other day if he was going to apply
for the Letters Club, to which he replied that he couldn't boast about
much in the way of athletics. Big
Blocks and Letters are all the same
to him.
Lady Macbeth: "Have I told you
about my apparition?"
Katie McCluck gave a lecture on
why not go into the poultry business
the other day but she said it so swee-
ly I don't think she really meant it,
do you? I think it's simply FASCINATING, and maybe she just
doesn't. Just think of raising all those
cute little fluffy wuffy chickens, And
I could wear my new gingham apron
and sunbonnet in which I look simply
stunning though of course I wouldn't
say   that  to anybody but you.
Well Snitzy I guess I'd better close

When the curtain came down on.
the final act of "Broken Dishes,"
presented by the International Players this week, an appreciative audience expressed their enthusiasm
audibly, and accorded a special ovation to Frank Vivyan, who returns
to Vancouver dramatic circles after
a long absence.
Hard cider, a henpecked husband,
and a wedding are highlights of the
play. Harry Stafford, as "Cyrus
Bumpstead,' 'the intimidated husband, gives a riotous performance.
The parts of "Elaino Bumpstead" and
"Bill Clark," principles in the wedding, are taken by Finis Barton and
Leyland Hodgson. Miss Barton is
I consistently good in the part and her
role in the play is exceptionally well
chosen. Frank Vivyan, as "Dr. Stump"
the minister, gives a scintillating performance.
The play abounds in witty lines and
amusing situations.   It is well up to
the   high   standard   set   by  previous j
plays   given    by    the   International
Players.

Students Take Lead  In Title Race
•<$>
Varsity Defeats
Occasionals 11-9
To Enter Finals
Students Will Meet Ex-Magee In Cup Finals
Alan P. Morley
A thin scattering of spectators saw one of the most exciting rugby games of the season last Saturday at Brockton Point
when the Varsity fifteen turned in an 11 to 9 victory over the
Occasionals to enter the finals for the knockout series.
Students Assume Early Lead
The first half saw the Thunderbirds with a slight edge overi their
hard fighting opponents all the way.
Within two minutes a couple of three-
quarter runs had advanced the ball
far enough that Pugh was able to
slide over for a try. It was not converted.
The Occasionals then tightened up,
and for the next twenty-five minutes
play surged up and down the field
with no definite superiority on either
side. The clean turf and bright sunshine provided ideal conditions for
the best brand of rugby and the teams
obliged with a spectacular and thrilling exhibition of tho English code.
Backflelds Shone
Tho packs heeled well, and the
backflelds were sure in their handling. As a result, confused dribbling
was reduced to a minimum and exciting three-quarter runs alternated with
efficient exchanges of kicking to keep
the ball alternating from one end of
the field to the other, and the spectators constantly on the edge of their
seats.
Legatt Scores
At last a scrum near the center
delivered the ball into the hands of
fye, the Varsity half who got it away
neatly to the three-quarters, and the
backfield obliged with a brilliant
run across the field and all the way
back again, with Leggat receiving the
last pass and sliding over the line
near the corner flag. Dalton converted
and the remaining two minutes of thc
first half passed without further scoring, leaving Varsity leading 8 to 0 at
the Interval.
Second   Half   Thrilling
The Occasionals came back to the
fray determined to give a good account of themselves. They pressed
hard and got results. After four minutes of play they duplicated the performance that got the Thunderbirds
their second score, the ball changing
hands eleven times ns man after man
was cut down by the Blues in a vain
attempt to stop their progress, BcLl
Irving finally going across just inside the flag. It was not converted.
Now the full-backs got in some fine
work, and a very pretty exchange of
kicks followed, Varsity at last being
backed up against their own line,
where three scrums took place before
they were able to clear, and it was
touch and go for several minutes.
Students Penalized
This must have made the Blue and
Gold over eager, for in the next five
minutes they wero continually off side
and in quick succession suffered from
two penalties, near the twenty-five
yard stripe, both of which Bud Murray converted from awkward angles
while the on-lookers held their breath.
This put the Grads in the lead, 9 to
8, with about ten minutes to go.
Thunderbirds Did Something
The Thunderbirds then pulled up
their socks, or preened their feathers
or shook their wings, whichever
Thunderbirds do when faced with
such a situation and piled into the
fray Mtith additional vim and determination. In less than two minutes they
heaved, wiggled and dodged their way
down toward the goal, and with Occasionals backed against the line, they
got Pugh away again, and ho crossed
near tho flag, getting half way back
to the posts before being forced to
touch. Tho convert failed again, leaving Varsity with a precarious lead of
two points, ll to 9.
Last Few Minutes Thrilling
For the remaining nine minutes it
was anybody's game. Up and down
went the ball, with packs and backs
working with precision and fight, determined to break through. First one
line and then the other was threatened. The Grads nearly scored, but a
penalty relieved Varsity. Then the Occasionals missed one awarded to them
by an eyelash. A brilliant exchange
of kicks wore out the last minute or
two, and as time was called the relaxed for tho first instant in half on hour.
The victorious Thunderbirds will
•play the Ex-Magees, who upset all the
dope by cleaning up the celebrated
AU Blacks in tho finals of the Knockout Tournament, in tho near future.
It should be worth seeing.

Draws With
Regals
In a regular league match which was
featured by lusty kicking, robust
checking, and loose passing, Varsity
split the points with Regals at Memorial Park, no goals being scored by
cither team.
Varsity won the toss and let Regals
kick off against the bright sun. The
ground was hard and with an exceptionally lively ball the players experienced difficulty in controlling
their shots. Still, the game produced
some neat touches, though these were
on tho infrequent side.
Costain New Centre
With Jack Martin watching the
game from the sidelines through in- ]
eligibility, the Students presented a|
new centre-forward in the person of j
Ernie Costain, and moved Archie Mac-1
Dougall up to his former position at
inside-left, Jock Waugh filling his I
place at left-back. Hugh Smith wasi
starred at right-wing, and the rest of,
the sciuad resumed in their old slots.'
Yet the team on the whole failed to'
show its true form. I
Play Ranges tn Middle Field        •
From the outset midfield exchanges
were the order of the day. Corners, j
however, wero forced ot both ends,
with resulting playa not dangerous, |
Regals wero better than Varsity on
high balls in this half ond worried
the defenders, but Waugh and Millar
McGill remained unperturbed.
Towards the end of the first half,
McGill handled in the penalty area
on being hard pressed, ond Referee
Marshall promptly awarded a penalty.
Dale took thc spotkick, but shot wide.
Varsity took tho ball into Regals territory, ond Gloag did well to hold a
rasping drive from Davo Todd, who
played a lively game throughout.
Sutherland Rcplocc» Smith
After tho turn-over play continued
much ns bcfort». At this point Varsity brought or» Gerry Sutherland for
Hughie Smith. Les, Hunter, nt left-
half for the Iiv>crialists, and Mountain Man McLean, immediately behind him, were constant stumbling
blocks to Kozoolin and Sutherland,
but thc latter got through on a few
occasions.
R-gnls were now feeding their centre-forward with timely passes and
Stan Greenwood was called upon to
effect a number of saves. Jock Waugh
repeatedly relieved the pressure with
his heady play, and Varsity took the
sphere to the other end, where MacDougall, supplied by Costain, was
nearly successful. Dave Todd put in
a pretty header from a rebound, but
Gloag recovered just ln time. The
ball was in midficld when tho final
whistb blew, ond the teams went off
a point richer.
Jock Waugh nnl Bill Wolfe caught
the eye for Varsity, while Hunter and
tho whole Regals' attack performed
well.
It was gratifying to see quite n
number of Varsity co-eds and men on
the sidelines.
Teams
Regals—Gloag; McLean (J) and McLean (R); Reid, Dale, Hunter; Elder,
Hoare, Allen, Waugh, Kelly.
Varsity —Greenwood; Waugh, McGill; Thurber, Wolfe, Stewart, Smith
(Sutherland), Kozoolin, Costain, MacDougall,  Todd.
