Varsity Pucksters
Lose Hard Fought
Game jo Ex-Kings
A fighting squad of Varsity Hockey
{layers lost a hard-fought game to
flx-KIng Oeorge by the score ot 3-2,
last Friday night. With the score .10
Against them and four minutes of the
|ame left, the Blue and Oold suddenly
Showed their true form and scored
J WO goals In quick succession. Ex-
tings scored two goals ln the first
period, one of them very lucky, the
Seoond period was scoreless and In
the third the West-Bnders slipped
one more past Willis before Varsity
oould soore.
The Varsity team did not play up
to expectations. Willis was not as
Irood ii usual at times being quite
unsteady. Callan, on the whole, play*
«d a tdod game at defence, but his
rrtner Rhodes, although he scored
goal, was far from his best. Cars-
trail, at center, was as usual the main*
Stay Of the team, playing the entire
lame without a rest. He scored Var-
ity'a other goal and, had not hard
Ittok pursued him, would have scored
two or three more. Mathews and
flmlth, supporting Carswell on the
Kings, wotted hard, while of the substitutes Thome was the most effective. Pike flayed a useful game and
•ftoald have got a goal on more than
One occasion.
,' The over-cautiousness of the forwards wis a contributing factor to
the defeat. They insisted on playing
a three and even four man defence
"When two goals down and the result
was fatal.   Whon, too late, they real-
. jsed their mistake, quick results followed. If the forwards had played
their positions during the whole of
the game It Is safe to say that Varsity
Sould have won, for they were man!-
stly the better team.
From the spectator's point of view
the game was uninteresting, and the
laat four minutes provided the only
excitement of the whole hour. The
first goal scored by Ex-King George
Came as a surprise, and was a real
fldke. Their second goal was a well-
earned one, resulting from some pretty play of the forwards. When, however. Ex-King Oeorge scored their
third goal in the last period on what
looked like an off-side play, the Varsity forwards at last changed their
policy and charged up tho Ice. Cars-
well missed scoring by a fraction of
an Inch but a moment Inter broke
through again, this time making no
mistake about it. Then with three
minutes left, Varaity dirt their best
play of the evening, Rhodes swept
up tho Ice nnd found the net with a
hard shot. The hopes of Varsity supporters rose high but soon after the
face-off the whistle blew for time
Unique Decorations Feature
Gay Party of lunior Class
Incited by the "Arts '30 Library
Idea," members of the Junior year
staged one of the gayest class parties
of the year when they danced to the
muslo of Jack Emerson and his Varsity orchestra in Willow Hall, Friday
The "Arts '30 Library Idea" was
evidenced by the large bl**e and gold
"books" which decorated the walls.
These annuals told ln no uncertain
letters of the varied achievements of
the Junior class, including "Our Hula
Innovation," and "The Athletic
achievements of Arts '30." Other
annuals told of "Dr. Boggn, our Honorary President," a missing thumbprint with a reward of many "muck
rages," and finally "Professor Iloodln
Owing to locked doors the party
was slow In starting, but as time
passed It gathered momentum. The
result was that Instead of finishing at
12 p.m., the authorised proper tlmo
for Juniors ta go home, Arts '30 continued the dance until 12:15 a.m. He
freshments, balloons, paper huti* .toy
horns, and streamers all played u
part In "the history of the Arts "io

Address To Be Given
By Dean Bollert In
WIS. Course
The third lecture of the course In
Public Shaking, which is being given
by the Women's Literary Society,
and to which the general student body
Is Invited, will be held on Wednesday
at II o'clock In Arts 100, when Dean
Hollert will give nn address on "Public speaking."
In this lecture Dean Bollert will
deal with the following phases of her
subject:how to prepare a speech and
how to get It across to an audience;
how to develop fluency lu speech;
how to control nervousness: how to
give Introductions and votes of
thanks; and in general how to meet
the demands that are made upon the
average student and the average person in the field of public speaking.
As was previously announced thin
course has been opened to the men
as well- as the women, and all men
interested tn public speaking are invited to attend the remaining two
lectureri of the series.
Since:this course was instituted, a
number of students have expressed
disappointment for having missed the
first leoture, "Parliamentary Procedure," by Judge Helen MacQill. It a
sufficient number ot these students
communicate with any member of the
W.L.S. executive, an endeavor will
be made to have Judge MacQill repeat this lecture. The executive Includes: Dean Bollert, honorary president; Helen Smith, Grace Ryall. and
Barbara Ashby.
Seattle, Washington—If the amount of work that the faculty discipline committee has to do ls any
guage of the morality of University
students, collegians at Washington
must be raising wings, President M.
Lyle Spencer revealed this morning.
It seems that the discipline committee met Just once last quarter, and
when the meeting had been called to
order there was nothing on the docket.
So, after exchanging felicitations
und wise-crooks about the "angelic"
student body, the committee adjourned sine die.

Seattle, Washington, Jan. lf>. -Sophomore beard growers will spill their
gravy on their whiskers instead of
their neckties tomorrow. If John Kd-
wardsen, publicity chairman of the
class, has his way about it. Edward-
.sen yesterday Issued an edict that
second year men were not to let a
holiday interfere with the serious business of beard production.
Dinner parties, dances and dates
are all to be attended in full regalia,
Edwardaen declared. Tho Idea of
sacrificing a full week's growth for
one day of fickle feminine approval
Is unbecoming, and razors distinctly
will not be part of the Thanksgiving
"Let the girls get used to 'em," is
Edwardsen's tdvlce. And he passes
his contention that there is no real
danger of a dateless weekend on the
fact that so far no dates have been
refused on account of the he-whiskered condition of the man.
Senior "A" Captain
As I'uptuin or the Senior "A" hoop-
sters, Miss Mahon will lead her team
mates Into battle tonight when Varsity meets the Felixes at the V.A.C.
gym. Felixes and Varsity are at present tied, with Meralomas leading by
one game. The Blue and (lold quintette Is composed of practically the

Senior Years Prepare for
Annual Ball at Lester
On February the fifth, the Senior
Class will hold Its annual Hall at
Lester Court. Elaborate preparations
have been made to make this affair
a success. Unlike other years the
Hall this year Is being held previous

the lives of our Seniors by exposing
them to the chills, colds, plague,
pneumonia or other dire calamities,
The Hall will Include the students In

The Seniors are also reminded of
the fact that so far no nominations
have been handed In for Valedictorian and no suggestions for a Valedictory gift havo been submitted.
Losing 10-17 to the Richmond team,
the Varsity Senior "B" basketball
women staged an interesting match
at the Normal Gym on Wednesday
night. Again the student team was
at a disadvantage as to size and they
were not. quite quick enough ln changing from attack to defense during the
Wllma Watson starred in the first
quarter, making four points for Varsity after some hard playing. Kay
Kldd was also to the fore in the
struggle. The whole team was doing
well and making it exceedingly difficult for Richmond to make the score
for the first quarter 8-4 In their favor.
The Senior "B" women, although
displaying good team work and quick
passing, did not watch their checks
closely enough. Richmond managed
in the second quarter to add only
three more points to their total, one
being for a penalty shot. When time
was called tho count stood 9-4 for
Richmond at the end of the second
A hard struggle took place between
the two teams In the third quarter.
The student players were now watching their checks and the game became
exciting, both teams playing hard but
neither scoring. Finally Kay Kldd
netted a basket for the U.B.C. team
while Richmond made two baskets,
and the whistle blew with the scoro
for Richmond 13-8.
In the final quarter, both teams being tired the playing was not quite
an fast. Richmond chalked up four
more points while Lois Tourtellotte of
thi- Senior "B's" who hart been playing well, made one more basket. When
the game ended the Richmond players
were  victorious  with  the  score   17-10.
The Senior "li" team was: Lois

Varsity must win this game ir it ls to maintain its record of last year

3. Sonata In F sharp minor, Op. 11
—Robert Schumann
Un Poco adagio: Allegro vivace
Aria, Andante cantablle
Scherzo e Intermezzo
Allegro un poco maestoso
Concerning  the  circumstances surrounding the composition of the great
"Sonata  In  F sharp minor'' a word
might be said.   It was written by Robert Schumann during the long period
of his courtship or Clara Wlecks, a
girted   young   pianiste,   many   years
younger than Schumann, who was for-
bidden by her father to marry him.
It  was  not  until  years   later,   when
Schumann's courtship took the somewhat unusual   form  of a  lawsuit  In
which Wleek's objections to their union were declared to be frivolous and
baseless, that they were married.
The title of this striata was originally "Pianoforte Sonata, dedicated to
Clara by Florestan and Euseblus"—
two of Schumann's many pen names
In which he endeavored to embody
the dual sides of his ii'Mure. Tlio
vehement, stormy, rough element is
represented hy l'Morestan; the gentler and more poetic, by Kuseblus.
This work reveals much of lily personal experience and feelings and
though it is somewhat lacking in form
and unity, as might he expected from
an early composition, it is one of his
most powerful and striking compositions, containing a certain frfnhness
and charm that ho never surpassed In
later works.
The unusual attractiveness of the
program which these fine artists are
so graciously bringing to us merits
the same splendid support accorded
by tbe student body to the Musical
Society In Its previous endeavors to
present these "Half-Hours" of the
best in music.
10.—What ls the price of a college
Tho U. S. bureau of education after
a survey of 1,100 colleges and universities fixed the average minimum
at $581 a year, $2,324 for a four-year
term, and the maximum—depending
upon the elasticity of lad's pocketbook,
says a United Press article published
The |581 a year Includes everything necessary to college lite—tuition, fees, books, board and room,
clothing and entertainment.
That, however, would mean that tho
student must stick strictly to tho budget.
For $1,005 a year the student would
be allowed a little more leeway, could
spend a trifle more for amusements
and, perhaps live in slightly better
Can Hnve  Education.
Hut any young man or young woman
who sincerely desires a higher education can have it for the $581 a year.
Tlie bureau has delved Into all
phases of college life and finds: —
Tuition in public controlled schools
for arts and science courses average
$1'J7 a nine-months term.
Law courses cost about $50 a term
Board and room averages $276 for
the college year.
Books and stationery cost approximately $20.
Laundry averages $36.
Amusements and entertainment average a minimum of $12.
Board and room is the largest Item
on a student's expense account, the
bureau found. The average in state
schools ls $276. One of the largest of
state universities made a thorough
study of this phase of college life and
found men students paying approximately $7,12 a week for board and women students $6.80. In the same school
room costs averaged $14.81 a month
for men and $15,01 ror women.

Some yearn ago there was a strong feeling among the atudenta that the Student Body In general was given little opportunity to hear topics, pertaining to problems of Interest to young
people, discussed by qualified speakers. Fortunately this state
of affairs has been remedied as a result of the progressive measures adopted by various organizations at the University.
Primary among these stands the Students' Christian Movement. The S.C.M. undoubtedly deserves the highest praise and
the warmest expression of appreciation from those students who
have attended lectures under Its auspices. These lectures, which
are generously thrown open to the public are planned and advertised well in advance. Well known speakers are secured for every
meeting and these gatherings certainly fill a long felt want on the
Already a number of positions for summer employment have
been assigned by the University Employment Bureau, and before long the work of finding summer employment for University students by this organization should operate on a much
larger scale.
Like other organizations, however, the success of the University Employment Bureau depends on the co-operation antl
support it receives from the students themselves.
The Bureau was organized in April, 1928, with headquarters
In the Administration Building. This was really too late In the
term for the organization to give the best results, but in spite
of obvious drawbacks owing to limited time and lack of publicity,
the Bureau was able to place students in various positions during the summer months.
The main objects of the organization are: First, to provide
summer employment; second, to provide part-time work for students during the University session; third, to help students locate
positions after graduation. Obviously this is a great and important work for a young organization to undertake where there
are at least ono thousand students in need of employment for
five months every summer, and its success depends on student
co-operation. Consequently all students should do their bit by
notifying the University Employment Bureau of any positions
or sources of employment which might be filled by University
If this organization proves successful in British Columbia,
no doubt it will extend its activities, and probably in the future
students will be enabled to earn I heir way through other universities, encouraged by an exchange system of which the U.II.C.
Employment Bureau will form a part.

lifts (not by the moans of pedul extremities) we aro Intensely Interested
In any method of study that does
away with the nerve-wracking, head-
splitting ordeal known to u very
select few as brain-work, to get u
ride at no cost.
The fact that college students havo
yet to find such a magic method is
sufficient proof that it is humanly impossible to gain such valuable appurtenances. The argument with a prof,
would seem to end here, but let us go
a little further and try to discover
what these philosophers were doing
when they put their faith in something
other than the intellect in their quest
for a ride gratis.
In the flrst place they had a wrong
idea ot ride-seeking. After centuries
of motoring .from the first horse to
the latest airplane, we have discovered that the knowledge of the ways
and means of securing a lift does not
consist of any particular state of
mind. This knowledge is a way of
acting—a way of handling our environment. When we watch a surgeon
set a broke arm, we see that he knows
surgery by what he does. This is a
type of behavior that Is under the
Immediate control of the Intellect—
the corlex, if you please. Bus-begging
comes under the same control that
needs naive skill. Skill ln this is tbe
final result of Intensive study and hard
work in the matter of psychology as
applied to car drivers.

In view of the new stopping theory
or lift-getting, what do our philosophers mean when they say there is
another and more reliable way than
that of tlie pathetic .smile. From our
experience we can safely .say that it
would be easier for a bolt of lightning
to come out of a clear sky than it
would be for a ride to como from a
varsity car speeding by on tho boulevard. Perhaps the philosophers are
being moved by pure impulse which
they have sanctified by calling lt intuition when they see tho unrelenting
automobiles. There is nothing divine
about the actions of the mind when
this happens. It Is not even human.
It may be sufficient for a jungle life
where the situations an animal must
face are always the same, but modern
civilized life is so complicated and
so kaleidoscopic that we must keep
our wits sharp every moment if we
expect to gain these all-desirable lirts.

The Snow
Two or three days ago, there up-
poured on this page In the Litany
Corner a desslcuted paragraph dealing with snow, It purported to say
nil thut could be said on the mutter
and so revealed a piutelty of Imagination probably due to the stultifying
Inlliioiicn of overwork.
All the usual attributes of anow
wore listed, but the Important ones
worn omitted, The writer of thnt
verso made the mistake that ull tho
other grout poets have made, Thoy
prize snow us a positive thing while
its chief virtues are negative, Thoy
pralHe Its whiteness. Now It would
bo Just as beautiful were It blue, red
or orange, ns long us it covered the
sidewalks and hid the roads.
Then again, snow Is the revealer of
Under ordinary circumstances
houses are the most hideous
things In tho world (except streetcars). That is because their repulsive exteriors force themselves on
one's notice and ubsorb the attention.
They have slight individuality and
that is duo" merely to variations
in ugliness and keeps one from becoming accustomed to them.
When the snow comes, things are
different. The crudities of house-
paint are subdued. The deformities
of structure are masked. And the
house Is revealed as it really ls, a refuge from immensity. There one can
forget the beckoning abyss of the
sky, the never-ending earth and the
multitudes of meaningless people.
In snow time, Instead of being n
construction of surpassing hideous-
uess, the house ntands for warmth and
light and company. Then does each
house become an individual, for their
differences are not due to structure
but to their occupants. And nothing
reveals this more clearly than a fall
of snow. Warm lights and sounds of
music within are intensified by the
silence without. The houses glow
with life. Recluses should be cured
by walking at evening through quiet
streets, when the snow has come.
Returning to our friend, the muck-
writer, let me point out another benefit of snow that he overlooked. It
helps the glass-making industry.

"The game's the thing, not a lust
for cups."
This ls a very old Baying in its own
sphere, the very beBt of creeds. The
basketball team had the misfortune
to lose a good many men but they
did not say, "We have lost all our
best men, or nearly all, and we have
no hopes of winning a tangible reward for our play this season. Therefore the obvious procedure it to cancel our engagements, resign ourselves
from the field or sport und bemoan
our fate In sackcloth and ashes, Let
us now—"
But stop. The Basketball team are
carrying on aud those who agree,
and I, congratulate them. They mny
lose every gamo uud they may win,
but what matter?
Just by way of digression It might
not be out of place to mention the
latest advance of Cinematic Art, the
Movietone and the Vltaphone. Some
people do not cure for either, but I
deplore the sound ot an organ compared with the Roxy Symphony and
Louis Sylvester's s Vltaphone orchestra. Qood music wtll make utt Immensely bad filin quite tolerable.
And now we have the 'Talkies' or
'Speech films.' Here again some
people do not cere a rap for them
and indeed, in a few cases they cannot be blamed. When a few worthy
«ergons, playing In an old English
lanor, speak voluble American, the
situation becomes painfully obvious.
In faot it becomes unbearable, but
we must glanoe above Hollywood's
fallings when, not long hence, Mr.
John Barrymore will give us 'Hamlet' and nearly all the stage plays
that w* have wished to see, will arrive in forms as near as possible to
the original. To make my remarks
more specific I will mention:—
Ronald Colman playing ln the stage
version of "Bull-Dog Drummond" by
Cyril McNelle; Olive Brook playing in
'Interference," Roland Pertwee's story of mystery, and of course, "The
Desert Song."
Theee last are by no means classics
but perhaps some kind exhibitor will
give us Russia's masterpiece, "Ten
Days that Shook the Earth."

McQILL DAILY, Jan. 14.—Unknown
to themselves, 30 successful cheaters
at Colgate university have In the last
year beon studied by Professor C.
Brownell and used as laboratory specimens, snowing the' mental and emotional traits ot college men who cheat
at examinations— and get away with
Information about the 30 was obtained by underground and unofficial
channels Professor Brownell states
in reporting his investigation. None
of the cheaters was caught even by a
severe proctoring system.
Eighty per cent, of the group wero
found to be more psychroneurotic, or
emotionally unstable than the campus
average. More than half fell below
the college average In intelligence,
and the majority belonged to the type
known as psychological extroverts
that Is, good social mixers and more
inclined to activity than thinking.
"Contrasted with the .student hotly
tlie crlbher becomes a psychological
type," Professor Brownell concludes.
"His low intelligence may make
cheating somewhat of a necessity. His
extroversion may operate to further
than this. His emotional Instability
may make it easier for the spirit, to
succumb under the twofold necessity."
More than half the college cheating would be eliminated If thla psychological type could be eliminated,
according to Professor Brownell. With
the general type would go most of
the "all-around" college men who
shine ln team and track contests, glee
clubs, dramatic productions and other
bookless college activities, the professor believes.

After a successful series of three
wins and one loss to the Powell River
basketball fans, Varsity's Senior "B"
men returned yesterday morning with
fresh laurels to their credit. Bumping
up against the aggregations ot the
"Department Store," the "Pats" and

In their favor respectively 4*9-20, 49-3,

The hard boiled Science hordes
completely annihilated and subdued
the traditional onemles lu the annual
snowball battle last Friday. The
casualties amounted to half a dozen
black eyes, several catillflowered ears
und ten broken windows.
For nearly an hour, the valiant
Artsmen withstood the attackers on
the old battle ground between the
Arts Building and the Auditorium.
First one side and then the other
gained a few yards of trampled
ground while the neutrals suffered
severely ln their attempts to pass
across no-man's-laud to the Caf.
Finally a pitched body of shock
troops broke through the Arts ranks
and established themselves to the rear
of tho defenders. Under the resultant
cross-fire the Artsmen were gradually
battered into submission and retreuted
It ls believed thut the superior
strategy of the Sclencemen, was due
to a great extent to the larger percentage of O.T.C. men in their ranks.
Hostilities are liable to break forth
again any day and the Artsmen are
preparing to drive the Scientists
back into their1 own stronghold If
they ever dare attack the Arts Building again.

The purpose of a "class draw" is,
we believe, to help the members of
the class to "get together," to help
each student to meet other members
of his year, and to ensure a more or
less full attendance at the class party.
This ls the theory that has been set
forth by class presidents year after
year since the draw was invented.
In "cooking," the first objects of the
draw are defeated.
We wore grieved aud a little surprised, too, to hear thut the draw of
the graduating classes, held lust
week, wus rather blatantly "cooked."
We had hoped for better things of
We understand It happened something on this wise. A prominent
member or tbe faculty drew the
naiiie of a man and handed It to the
class president, who read It aloud.
Another member or the faculty then
drew the name of u woman front
his tray, and rend It out. All wont
smoothly. Some of tbe pairs drawn
se»med to In* quite a bit of a coincidence, but then coincidence hus a
proverbially long arm.
When this had been done, the professors were thanked and bowed their
way out. Someone then drew attention to the fact that the Science men
had been completely left out. Some
people generously suggested that they
be drawn with the "blanks" The
engineers quite naturally objected.
They, of course, wanted an equal
chance with the rest of the class, and
claimed a new draw. We hear there
wus vociferous objection to this
scheme, the loudest objectors being
some rather poor sports who had already done well, and could not hope
to do as well again.
Those lu favour of a new draw won,
und it was held accordingly.
We are disappointed to hear of this

This condition is said not to be so serious us it onco was because of advertising on the part of library authorities.
