War Poets
ject Of
Grim and gory subjects engrossed
the minds of the members of the
Letters Club at the second meeting
of the term, held at the home of
Mrs. B. Dubois Phillips on Tuesday
night last.
Anna Fulton and WiUlam Mathers
read papers on Wilfred Owen and
Siegfried Saatoon. The former poet
was kUled a few daya before Armistice was signed, the latter twice
wounded and a winner of the Military Cross. Both show the greatest
hatred of war in all its forms In
their work, and Owen's especiaUy
was dedicated exclusively to "War,
and the pity of War. The Poetry
is in the pity."
Old and New Tradition in War Poetry
"Deprecating the "general atmosphere of exultant victory or gay
pageantry" which is exhuded by the
classic British war poems such as
"Hearts of Oak," "Lepanto," "The
Battle of Ivry," the first paper emphasized the fact that war cannot
be considered now in any way a
glorious, adventure. Wilfred Owen,
a poet before he was a soldier, set
himself the task of showing the horrors of modern war without an Illusion about "the whole horrible
Before 1914 he was experimenting
with various word forms, and particularly with dissonance and assonance, which he was later to use, said
the reader, with great effect in
heightening the effect-of power and
terror in the war poems.
Meets Saseoon
Ih a mUltary hospital he met Siegfried Sassoon, for whom he conceived the greatest admiration, holding him as "Keats plus Christ plus
Elijah plus my Colonel plus my
lather confessor plus Amenophis IV
In  profUe . . ,"
He was invalided and sent home,
but was drawn back irresistably by
the haunting faces of the men, "It
will never be painted, and no actor
wUl ever seize It," he said in a letter
to his mother, "And to describe it, I
think I must go back and be with
He went back, won the M.C., and
was killed a week before peace was
« "Some of you," the reader concluded, "may have heard the notes
of a bugle late yesterday (Monday)
afternoon, shattering the silence on
the campus. If after reading the
poems of Wilfred Owen such a sound
calls up Images of blood and dirt and
dying men, rather than images of
flags and drums and prancing steeds
—then the spirit of Wilfred Owen
will be satisfied, no matter to what
place we assign him in the ranks of
the poets of the Great War."
Mathers on Sassoon
An even more violent denunciation
of war can be found in the works
of Siegfried Sassoon, according to
William Mathers' paper, which followed. "Among those men who made
a god of victory, he alone appeared
with the strength of mind to sacrifice everything, even the traditions
of poetry, even his whole artistic
plan in order that he might make
audible and intelligible in England
and elsewhere the awful truth."
His poetry is more graphically horrible than Owen's, who, the meeting
decided, possessed more detachment
than his much-admired comrade. Yet
"suddenly like a breath of fresh cool
air in a heated atmosphere will surprisingly appear some beautifully
natural little song of peace and England's meaning."
Sassoon has "since the conflagration ended, been producing steadily,"
and his message consequently has not
the final climactic effect of Owen's.
His poetry has of late become satiric,
not Improving in quality thereby,
thinks Mathers. He has also done
two novels, "Memoirs of a Fox-
Hunting Man" and "Memoirs of an
Infantry Officer," the first of which
won the Hnwthornden Prize and the
James Tait Black Memorial Prize in
1928. His prose has distinction and
clarity, and "the subtle and delicate
character  study"  wins  admiration.
'His development has been amazing. His later works have so surpassed his earlier though still magnificent attempts that he himself the
least of all can say where he will
end. In a world where so many
other masters of the English language are now gone, he will be a
consolation and a freshness because
of his continual effort, his craftsmanship and his clarity."
To he Probed
By Fo Soward
"Hltlerism and the German Republic" wUl be the subject of a
speech by F. H. Soward, Saturday
evening in Arts 100. The lecture is
under the auspices of the Vancouver
"Post-War Europe has had three
great experiments in government,
Fascism in Italy, Communism in
Russia and a Republic in Germany.
The first two have held their ground,
the third Is menaced by powerful
groups. What is the reason for this
'The divided support of the middle
class, the harshness of the Treaty of
Versailles, the compUcated election
system and the economic depression
have aU weakened the Republic supporters. In the history of the Republic Ebert, Stresemann, Hlnden-
burg and Bruning are significant figures, but two are dead, one is 85,
and the fourth is out of office. Hitler
and Von Papen are to-day the "men
of destiny" but Communism is in the
shadows. The elections of November 6 wttl show if the rising tide of
discontent has reached Its limit."
"I haven't any doctrines to explode
nor any beliefs to shatter, I intend
only to broaden your knowledge of
the planets," explained Dean Daniel
Buchanan in the second of a series
of lectures given under the auspices
of the West Point Grey United
.Church, Ninth and Tolmie, Tuesday
Slides of Observatories
Before lecturing on the various
planets themselves, Dean Buchanan
showed several slides of some major
observatories demonstrating how the
astronomers gained their deep knowledge of the stars, He then gave
several slides of the Royal Astro-
physical Observatory at Victoria,
laying particular stress on the importance and the magnitude of the
work being done there. He emphasized the fact that British Columbia
should be proud of the possession
of such an  institution.
Slides featuring various phases of
the geography of the moon, formed
the second main topic of the lecture.
The dean enlarged upon these by
explaining the source of the peculiar
topographical formation portrayed.
The surface gravity of the moon is
one-tenth that of the earth, and consequently any volcanic eruptions
would affect great changes ln the
surface of the land. This was illustrated by several slides of an enormous crater measuring some eighty
miles across the mouth.
Surface Gravity Low
"The moon, like many men, gives
most information when half full, and
not as Is generally supposed, when
full." At present the surface of the
moon Is entirely arid as there is no
rainfall at aU. But there was a time
when the moon was extremely active, especiaUy so, due to the low
gravity. A chart showing the various shapes of the moon as seen
from the earth was shown, Dean Buchanan explaining that it takes about
20 or 30 days for it to revolve about
the earth.
A number of slides showing the
solar system, star clusters, and spiral
nebulae, and their functioning was
discoursed upon. Their relations to
each other and to the earth and the
sun have no effect upon precipitation.
"I must transgress on my promise
and throw some light on the increasingly popular doctrine of astrology.
Astrology is plain and simple charlatanism and must be accepted as
such by everybody,"
Wednesday Set
For Xmas Play
Part Try-outs
"Great enthusiasm is being shown
by the new members of the Players'
Club in trying out for a part in the
Christmas Plays," said WiUlam Cameron, the president of the organization. He added that there is a great
deal of competition for the more
coveted parts.
The selections will be made on
Wednesday, October 26, at 1:80 or 2
p.m. The exact time to be arranged
lated by the "advisory board consisting of Mrs. Lawrence, Dr. Walker,
Dr. Warren, Miss Jefford, Mrs. Gordon Shrum and Mr. Sidney Risk.
Mr. Cameron made it clear that
new members must try out for the
Christmas Plays. Former members
who have never had a part in the
Spring Plays are also trying out for
The trial sections ot the plays now
in the hands of the members, must
not be destroyed as they wUl be
needed to complete the final copies,
when these are given out.
Two points ahead of Mary Cook,
John Cornish Is now leading in the
reporters' contest for journalistic ex-
ceUence which is being conducted
by the Publications Board.
With a previous score of 4 points,
Cornisn climbed to the top with his
story headed "Clubs! Here's a Chance
for Free Movies!" which netted him
7 marks.
Jack Stanton's story on "Committee's Recommendations Characterized
as Propaganda" won him two first
choices, bringing his total up to 10.
The "by-line" was a further recognition of the worth of the story. In
the general news department, it is
the Ubyssey's policy to grant bylines, that is, signed stories, only on
special occasions, or when the report
is more in the nature of a review or
The third place in the issue was
given to Ruth Madeley, for her story
on "Musical Society to Meet."
Total score now stands as follows:
John Cornish, 15 points.
Mary Cook, 13 points.
Jack  Stanton,  10  points.
Darrel Gomery, 9 points.
Ruth Madeley, 3 points.
A weekly award of a Publications

First Arts-Science
Brawl Wednesday
Science and Arts revived their
ancient feud last Wednesday at the
doorway of Applied Science 100. For
a brief period the battle waxed fast
and furious as a body of Sciencemen
tried in vain to prevent the entrance
of a determined horde of Arts. When
the battle was over and the last
Sclenceman ejected, there remained
as souvenirs, a shattered doorpane
and, high over the Lecture Desk,
several captured shoes, Science Tribute to Victorious Arts.
Thirty-eight candidates will receive
the degree of Bachelor of Arts at
the FaU Congregation to be held
Wednesday, October 26. There will
also be six new Masters of Arts, two
bachelors of Commerce and four of
Applied Science. The names of those
receiving degrees foUows.

Lyle Stewart Introduces New
Song by W. Gibson to Freshmen
Open Lecture On
Ghandi and Russia
An open lecture by Miss Osterhout,
Arts '23, on her impression of Gandhi
and Russia, will be given at West
Point Grey United Church, Tolmie
and Eighth avenue, on Monday evening,  October  24,  at 8:15. I
Students are familiar with the fact i
that  Miss  Osterhout  was  a  chef  at
Kingsley Hall, a settlement-house in
the  East  of  London,  where   Gandhi .
stayed   while   attending   the   Indian [
Conference.   Miss Osterhout, who has
toured   through   Europe,   spent   ten
days in Russia during the past summer  and  will  give her   impressions
of the visit.
Freshmen held their third pep
meeting in the auditorium last Wednesday, at which Bill Gibson, who
shared first prize in the song-writers'
contest which was sponsored by the
Womens' Undergraduate Society a
year ago, was introduced. Bill, who
hails from Victoria College, played
the winning song, "Hail to the Gold
and Blue," on the piano, and afterwards accompanied while the freshmen sang the chorus.
And how they sang! The auditorium was packed to the doors and
the gallery, judging from the array
of feet hung over the side, was overflowing. Lyle Stewart, Varsity's head
cheer leader, had a new stunt to
show the students that has required
hours of practice to perfect. It is a
new way of leading the old "Klt-
sUano-Capilano." Lyle has taken
two assistants under his wing. Bill
Tremalne, and Sid Swift, who is
quite prominent on the cinders. Sid
came  a  close second  In a  thrilling
finish in the Arts '30 road race a
couple of years ago. And this is the
method that is knocking the cheering section cold. Lyle stamps up and
down the foreground waving his
arms, alternately throwing them aloft
and pulling his socks up, which is to
be interpretated as the good old
Chinook War Dance, usually given in
protest at something like the Kidd
Report, Meanwhile the freshmen,
eyes devoutly on page 83 of their
Handbooks, bawl out a jargon of
Chinook swearwords and the two assistants writhe around at the back
of the stage.
Gordon Hilker led while the songs
were sung and put up with a lot of
heckling from the gallery, even submitting to being pasted in the eye
severals times with lunch paper
thrown by the playful freshmen.
Judging from the stentorian tones
issuing from the upper regions the
upperclassmen have taken the hint
that they are invited too.
Senior Draw
Slated For
Tues. Noon
But four days of feverish anticipation to live through, and the palpitating members of Arts '33 will have
their respective fates revealed to
them from the platform of Arts 100.
Reduced fees have persuaded a
goodly number of final-yearists to
part with the requisite four doUars
ln order to participate in the orgy
planned for Tuesday noon. The fact
that another such amount wiU be
gouged from them next term as yet
fails to fiU them with gloom, and
hUaritles are expected both for the
draw and for the class party, which
is scheduled for Friday next.
Those who desire to choose their
own partners for the revels in the
Aztec Room may drop their names
into a box provided for the purpose
in the foyer of the auditorium not
later than noon on Monday, October
On Tuesday the rest ot the names
will be drawn indiscriminately by
suitably reliable personages and the
results proclaimed aloud while the
assembled class expressed Its delight in
the discomfiture of the victims in
true sophomoric fashion.
Formality ia an innovation at the
Senior class-party. Such successes as
the barn-dance and the gangster hop
are recalled with regret by some,
while others express their approval
of the soup-and-flsh idea. It is
thought that the ornateness of surroundings and costume will in part
make up for the disappointment of
the seniors at the loss of their ball
in the Spring.
Musical   Society,   Basketball,
Players' Club Come in for
Endowment Land
To be Populated
By Militia Men
Population in the University endowment lands will be increased by
some three hundred non-permanent
militia men in the near future, when
B. C.'s first labor battalion, provided
for by the B. C. governments is
stationed for the purpose of road
work in the vicinity.
With endorsement the University
derives much benefit resulting from
the project to prosecute road work in
the area. Part of the plan is an entrance from Chancellor Avenue, providing a second entrance to the endowment lands from Seventh Avenue.
Bus service will be improved by the
addition of a' circular road, making
possible fifteen minute service. It is
felt that this will greatly enhance the
value of the land.
The militiamen themselves, requested the arrangement, with the Idea that
the unemployed in their ranks could
be segregated, in order to continue
their drills and keep Intact the militia
units. Members will be provided with
tents and uniforms, and the $7.50
monthly from the Provincial Government, given to individuals in aU relief camps.
Discipline wiU be maintained by a
staff of a voluntary committee of officers from the Coast Garrison and
officers drawn from a voluntary committee to be named by Coast militia
circles. The battalion will serve for
work purposes only, and will be unarmed. It is thought however, that
its existence will have a salutary effect on the city, preventing such difficulties as occured last year.
The Dominion Government wiU continue to contribute to the upkeep of
the men the amount which they were
contributing to their upkeep when
they were scattered through various
provincial relief camps. In addition
to the contribution of the Provincial
Government, $20,000 has been set aside
by the University Land Funds for
covering the initial cost of the scheme.

Players' Club Protests
As a potential source of additional
revenue, the idea of a small admission charge to the Christmas plays
this year was looked upon with favor
by Council. It was suggested that a
charge of fifteen cents to students, and
twenty-five cents to others be made.
This proposal, however, met with
strong protest from the Players' C?ub,
through their president, Bill Ouneron.
Breaking of tradition, fall in attendance with consequent discourage-
"melt of acioft'alfw necessity of
paying royalties amounting to one
hundred dollars more than in former
years were presented as necessary results of such a policy.
Christmas Plays Private
Mr. Cameron further pointed out
that the Christmas plays were private performances and that their quality could not be guaranteed. And finally, he contended that if the student
body had to pay admission, the money
spent by Council on the Players' Club
would benefit only the sixty members
of that club, instead of the students
at large. He pointed out that the
Players' Club already yields a net
revenue to the A.M.S. No decision In
the matter has yet been made by
It was decided to sell off at greatly
reduced prices all old Totems and
Handbooks. Prices were fixed as follows:
1925-30 Totems  25c
1931 Totems   50c
1932 Totems  75c
1931-32 Handboks   10c
With regard to next year's Totem,
Council is anxious to avoid losses incurred by Totems ln former years.
If the annual is pubUshed this year
it seems probable that changes therein wiU include omission of the usual
Literary Supplement, and curtailment
of the various write-ups.
Other business included the granting of permission to the Science Men's
Undergraduate Society to hold meetings in App. Sc. 100 on Thursday noon
of each week.
The date of the Science Banquet
was changed from Oct. 28 to Nov. 10.
Westbrook Service
Held Despite Rain
Undeterred by inclement weather
conditions fifty members of Arts '33
motored out to the Ocean View Cemetery Thursday noon to pay tribute
to the memory of Dr. F. F. Wesbrook,
first president of  the  University.
Dr. Carrothers, Hon. Vice-president
of the class delivered an address to
the Seniors gathered round the graveside. He reviewed the life of the
president which is so intimately connected with the early history of the
University. He stressed the very real
sense in which his devoted sevvice
had hastened his death. His work
was especially difficult during the
war years, during which he kept up
a correspondence with many of the
students who went overseas with the
University battalion, with the result
that they still keep an active interest in the University.
A wreath was placed on the monument and the ceremony was brought
to a close by observing a few moments silence. Page Two

It is interesting to note tiie varioui reactions to that now
comparatively rare phenomenon, "a surplus." Some are commending Mark Collins for his remarkable business acumen in
producing one during this phase of the depression, while others
are taking exception to it on the grounds that he has been withholding money from deserving clubs and athletics.
There is a certain irony about the situation, for at the same
meeting at which the treasurer reported the extra $3000, two
important functions on the social calendar were eliminated because of the reduced income of A.M.S. funds. No intercollegiate
games are to be played this year. On every hand we hear of
the need for drastic economy. There may even be a sacrifice
of such traditions as the "Totem" represents in the University.
The surplus might be devoted to resuscitating any or all
of these dying events. However, it is no great problem what to
do with the present surplus. There is always the Stadium,
which perhaps holds out the greatest claim.
Students would like to know—Is the same policy with regard to balancing the books, to continue this session and in
future? And if so, what is the object of it all? A surplus may
be very good from a business standpoint, but the justification
for it depends upon whether the A.M.S. exists for the benefit
of the students, or the students for their Alma Mater. If the
former is the case the object is to give them the full use of
their fees while in attendance at the University. A balanced
or nearly balanced budget would therefore be a nearer approach
to perfect administration.
The money has been employed in a way which it is hoped
will prove profitable, even to the extent of producing a surplus
perhaps bigger and better than the last. The construction of
a fence around the St&dium sounds like a good investment
which should yield greater gate receipts to augment the Council's coffers for the benefit of future bleachers.
By Brand
"The Theory of Relativity is a feat
of the mathematiclal Imagination,
something poetic. It Is difficult, sophisticated, highbrow, but approached
with the right attitude it can seem
simple, for it is nothing mysterious,
but an expansion of older mathematical ideas," stated Professor Brand,
opening a speech before the first
meeting of the Royal Astronomical
Society, ln Science 200, Tuesday evening. His subject was "Einstein and
Concerned chiefly with the mathematicians viewpoint of-the Theory,
the speaker first gave its historical
approach a comprehensive treatment.
The logical attitude of EucUd'a geometry, based on definition and axiom;
the more fantastic postulatlons of
Bolyal and Lobatschivsky, which are,
contrary to expectation, unassailable;
the symbolic geometry of Remon,
dealing with two planes, all furnished a basis for Einstein's work, he
explained. Einstein, discarding a
theory that space contracts with
movement, declaring thia to be only
apparent, laid down two principles
in 1905 and 1916; namely, that abso
lute motion cannot be detected by
any experiment, and that Ught has
all velocities in all systems.
Prof. Brand then explained how the
Theory was attained, and told of the
1609 experiment when a predicted
deflection of light occured, so verifying the Theory.
"A consequence of the Relativity
Theory is the finlteness of the Universe, as curving light will eventually return in its circuit," concluded
Prof. Brand.
Dr, Shrum, president, after welcoming members and visitors, suggested for the coming season that
a short talk be given each month on
the sky, that a Question and Suggestion Box be instituted and that an
expedition embark for the Dominion
Observatory at Victory In the winter. The first two will be undertaken by Mr. Bennett and Mr. Teas-
del respectively.
It is with great pleasure that the Ubyssey is able to comment on the fact that the Vancouver Institute is becoming a
far more vital force both on and off the campus. The Institute
sponsors lectures every Saturday evening and students are
asked to come and bring their parents and friends.
Dr. Shrum, who heads the organization, has stated that a
new policy has been commenced. In the future only those
speakers who have been requested to appear on the program
by the executive will be heard. This allows the committee to
arrange a schedule which is of far, greater general interest.
There has been one example already, of the quality of
Institute speakers, and a glance over the year's program assures
one that quality is the keynote of this wide-awake organization.
Although students are only asked to attend the Wesbrook
Memorial Service once in their four years, only fifty graduates-
to-be braved the rain to pay their respects to the memory of the
man who has done perhaps more for the University than any
other person either living or dead. Dr. Wesbrook was the first
president of the University and as such should be honored quite
apart from his services to this institution. Many of those who left
the calm sanctuary of a seat of higher learning for the strife and
bloodshed of the trenches will remember that Dr. Wesbrook's
interest in his students was so intense that in a great many cases
he spent much of his valuable time keeping up a close intercourse by correspondence.
These men have been keeping his memory and the memory
of the University through the years since his death. It is fitting
therefore that we, their successors, should make a conscientious
attempt to do the same. And yet only fifty members of the graduating classes attended.
Correspondence   ]
Editor,  Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
And so you are the Editor of the
Ubyssey bilge-rag!! What a poor
specimen it is to be sure of a University journal, But then as we all
remark the U.B.C, never seems one
bit like a REAL University, but far
more like a factory ONLY as a rule
factory hands have better manners,
You, the boys and girls, are all such
vulgar hooligans, When I think of
our real universities the only three
real ones we have within our Empire Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh and oh what a gulf between
these and this U.B.C. which should
never have been built.   It does not
justify in any one way the huge

V.C. Irons Addresses
V.C.U. on Slump
"The Bible is not such an old-
fashioned book, it can still be of use
to-day," said Mr. V. C. Irons, of the
advertising branch of the Vancouver
Board of Trade in his address given
before a general meeting sponsored
by the V.C.U. at noon on Wednesday.
In introducing the speaker the
chairman remarked that "the problem of the depression has been
spoken of from every materialistic
viewpoint, political or otherwise. It
remains for Mr. Irons to deal with
it from the Christian viewpoint."
"Everyone at the present time admits that the world is 'in a state of
chaos," said the speaker. "Many of
the business men in town feel that
they are lucky to get three square
meals a day. Business is being run
on promises without money banking.
All indications point toward a possible revolution."
He said that he had searched in
vain "for any possible trace of religion  in  government dealings."
Even at the recent economic conference at Ottawa the name of God
was only mentioned once, and then
in blasphemy. Governments were
cited as "pyramiding mistakes In
their attempts to recoup losses."
Some of the recent economic conferences evolved some fine plans.
"The trouble is," said Mr. Irons,
"that everyone thinks that they are
perfect as long as they do not touch
him personally. The main thing
wrong with such schemes is the attitude   of  the  people   themselves."
Using the Bible as authority Mr.
Irons showed how the coming of the
present depression In all its phases
was prophecied ages ago. The present generation is very near the mill-
enium and "can only be saved by
faith," he concluded.
European Situation
Discussed By I. R. C.
"Europe is not a unit politically or
economically," said Norman Robertson
to the members of the International
Relations Club at a meeting held at
the home of Dr. M. Y. Williams Wednesday evening, speaking on European Economic  Co-operation.
Each of the small countries which
has gained independence since the
war desires to retain it in spite of
economic disadvantages. The new
political units have their own customs and tariffs, armies, lines of
transportation and individual coinage
systems. Added to these drawbacks
Europe has not been able to compete
with United States' mass production
through highly developed machinery.
The talk was followed by open

Varsity Team Minus the Usual Fight—Both
Teams Fumble Badly—U.B.C. Tackling
Off Formf—Lawrence Scores 10 Points
For Meralomas
Students Wilt In Final Quarter—touchdown In Last Minute
Fumbles and touchdowns were' Just about the only things In
evidence in the Big Four Canadian Rugby Club tilt at Athletic
Park last Wednesday night, when Meralomas romped through
Varsity to a 26-0 victory. The win firmly established the Orange
and Black squad in top place and puts them in an almost unbeatable position lor winning the Lipton trophy.
It was just the same old story of a green bunch of rookies
trying to show an experienced team how to play footbaU. But
this time the traditional fighting spirit seemed sadly lacking,
and apart from a few individuals the squad wilted early in the
On the other hand, despite plenty of
fumbles the Meralomas gave a good
exhibition of clipping, tackling, and
blocking, and made full use of every
opportunity to score.
First Quarter Fairly Even
Meralomas opened the game and
Varaity ran the ball back about five
yards. Shortly after this the Orange
and Black secured a Blue and Gold
fumble on the twenty-yard line.
From there it was just a case of
making two plays of ten yards each,
and the Kitsilano boys made the
score 5-0 in the first three minutes
of play. The convert was unsuccessful and the play was even for the
rest of the quarter.
A series of fumbles early In the
second canto resulted In the Clubbers gaining possession on Varsity's
ten yard line. Niblo failed on an attempted drop kick, but booted the-
leather over the east-end fence for one
A Meraloma off-side saved U.B.C.
from a bad funble and gave them
first down, but a forward pass on an
end run brought a ten yard penalty
on the next play.
Meralomas March to Touchdown
The Kitsilano boys took Varsity's
ensuing kick and ran it back just
inside U.B.C. territory for a first and
ten. After three first downs husky
Bill Lawrence plunged through the
center of the Blue and Gold line for
the second touchdown of the game.
They failed to score the extra point
and the half ended 11-0.
Third Quarter Scoreless
Bojth teams literally fumbled their
way through the third quarter, although a few forward passes were attempted to mBke things a little more
interesting. Each team made pressing
advances, but sloppy handling at the
crucial moments prevented any scoring.
The final period was all Meraloma.
Niblo's kicking and flashy end runs
by the Kitsilano backs kept Varsity
continually on the defensive. On a
beautiful extended forty-yard end-
run Bill Burraston crossed the U.BC.
line to make the score 16-0.
Last Minute Touchdown
With a few minutes left to play,
Meralomas secured the ball on Varsity's forty-yard line on a very close
call by Findlay, and proceeded from
then on to add insult to injury by
scoring ten points in less than half
as many minutes. Bill Lawrence went
over the line for the third touch of
the game.
With only a minute to play, U.B.C.
tried a forward pass In a desperate
effort to score. Fate went against
them, however, and Wally Hammond
intercepted the pigskin and took it
forty yards in the opposite direction
for the final score of the game.
The team: Keilor, D. Stewart, J.
Stewart, Pierson, Kirby, Farrington,
Bourne, Moore, Bolton, Hedreen,
Rush, Steele, Mclntyre, Henderson,
Malcolm, Johnstone, Owen, Poole,
Jack, Wilson, Bower, King, McCrimmon and EUet.

Doug, is one of Varsity's most versatile athletes. Besides being one of
the best backfield men in the local
Big Four league, he is also one of
the most tricky basketball players to
be seen in these parts. It is probable that he will be seen in action
in his old position as guard on Saturday night when the college boys
meet their old rivals the Adanacs, in
the first game of the season.
At a conference of the Ice hockey
leagues of Vancouver on Wednesday
night, it was arranged that Varsity
puckmen should enter two teams,
one In the Intermediate League, and
another team may be entered in the
Commercial League itself and every
effort is being put forth to this end.
Excellent material is at hand for
the opening of the season. The old
standbys, Carswell, Ramsden, Mathews and Horsman will be endeavoring to hold their old positions from
such men as Greenwood, Page, Morris, MacLeod, Agnew, Van Camp,
McGregor, Farrant, Crowiey, Hartwell, Pike and Saltzman, and many
others, there being seventeen men
turning out for six positions on the
senior team. Dick Briggs president
of the club and King McGregor forecast, however, that this team will
be made up from the following: For
goal, C. Willis, who was reserve
goalie on last year's Intermediate
crew, and H. Andrews, last year's
Junior goalie, Defence, Puder, Fowler, M. Stewart, Symonds, who is a
newcomer from Lethbridge and
seems to have the stuff it takes, and
Kirby, are all experienced players
and it remains to be seen which of
them will be the big pair.
Practice hours have not yet been
decided upon, but Bill Jack, the new
manager, is looking into the matter
and notice will be given out at the
meeting of the club which will be
held Monday next.
The boys are all extremely keen
and are out after the cup, no less.
"It's about time that Canada's national sport be elevated to it's true
position among the other sports on
the campus," King McGregor, last
year's president of the Club, says.

showing last Saturday will be given
the call, and Ex-Magee will have a
hard time to stop these hard hitting

The Senior Soccermen have drawn
a bye this week-end, and will thus
be inactive. The Junior squad, however, cross the Inlet for a game with
West Vancouver Rangers at West
Vancouver. Although again accepting a heavy defeat last Saturday, the
boys are determined that this week
will mark their first victory, and in
view of their strengthened line-up,
should make an improved showing
on Saturday. Don Atwater and Cy
Smith, two former stars with the
Junior squad, will be out again for
the first time in the West Van. game,
and should add the necessary experience and punch.
The first hockey practice was held
at Connaught Park on Wednesday.
The club has been very fortunate in
getting Mr. E. White as coach.

Cleveland Moved To Wing Three-Quarter
—Second and Third Divisions To Play
The Varsity Senior English Rugby squad are out to better
their standing in the Tisdal Cup league when they tangle with
Rowing Club at 2:15, Saturday afternoon at Brockton Point
Oval. At the present, the Students are tied with N. V. All-
Blacks for second position, but a win tomorrow is necessary If
they are to catch the Ex-King Oeorge aggregation.
Under the watchful eye of Buck Yeo and the skillful guidance1 of Art. Mercer,,the Oval punters have been working out
vigorously, and in Buck's opinion, should take the Clubbers
despite serious loss from the lineup. Vic. Rogers, who was injured in last week's game has been*
going around the Campus with a stiff

Arts 36 Take
Education 1-0
Eking out a 1-0 victory over a
scrambling Education team In the initial Interclass Soccer fixture on
Wednesday noon, Arts '36 moved into
first place in the league standing.
As theirs is the first victory recorded
this season, they carry an advantage
of two points into their next encounter.
Play in the first half was rather
erratic, with tho Education boys having the edge on their opponents.
However, Bud Cooke in goal for the
would-be pedagogs was called on to
juggle a few shots around the goal
posts. Combination in both forward
lines was a minus quantity.
After the feast of the passover, the
'36 laddies took matters into their
own hands, and decided to show the
teachers how not to play Soccer—
with the result that they pushed the
ball past Cooke. From this point on
the game was oven with most of,the
play in mid-field.

Strohg Blue and Gold Team To Line Up
Against Visitors From New Westminster
—Osborne May Not Play—New 10 Second Rule To Be In Effect
Tomorrow night the Senior A basket crew will play their
first game of the season at the Vancouver Athletic Club's Gym,
by Athletic Park. They are slated to take the floor against
Adanacs, and with weeks of strenuous practice to their credit,
are confident of victory.
First Night of New Rule
They will certainly need all the practice they have had, for
on that night the new ten-second rule will come into effect for
the first time in any senior league game in Vancouver. The
new rule states that a team may not hold the ball in their territory, that Is, their side of the center^
line, more than ten seconds. This'
means that the team in possession ot
the ball must make an attack on the
opposing team, or in some way advance the ball over the half-way line,
Inside of ten seconds after It crossed
into their part of the court, failing
which the opposing five is awarded a
throw-in from the sideline.
Once this forced attack has been
made, the powers that be have added
another clause, which ordains that
once advanced across the center line,
a short must be taken at the basket
so that it comes in contact wHh the
backboard, before it may be again retrieved into home territory. So far
nothing has been heard about the effects of this ultimatum, and Saturday night's tussle promises to be an
engaging performance.
Buck Yeo will referee on the occasion and Hal Straight will do the umpiring.
Here's the Big Five
Laurie Nicholson, contrary to expectations, has signed up and is practically certain to play center In the
opening game. Laurie played on the
Dominion Championship squad of the
year before last, and will have with
him on the forward line Cy Lee and
Pi Campbell, who were also on that
epoch-making team.
Little is definitely known about the
defense pair, but it is pretty safe to
say that Ken Wright will go In there
along with Bob Osborne. Bob is still
in high hopes of taking part at the
time   of   going   to   press,   despite   a first game on Saturday.   Bob will be
Captain of this year's Senior A
basket squad, Bob is another of Varsity's outstanding athletes. At the
present time he is suffering from a
pulled tendon in his leg and it is
still doubtful if he will get into the
wrenched knee.
These then, are the big five who
will step out on the floor to do or
die for dear old Alma Mammle—
that is if Coach Allen doesn't change
his mind inside the next two days.
Mclntyre, Tervo and Bardsley will
also be out in strip.
Adanacs Have Powerful Lineup
Many of last year's Adanac squad
have either quit the game or joined
another quintette this season. Doug
Fraser is, however, back again and
will pair up with Stew Gifford at
defence. The forward line will be
made up from the following players:
Shiles at centre, Mayers, McEwen
and Grant. The Adanacs have had
several internal upsets since the old
Vancouver and District League days,
but they will still have a lot to say
before the match goes to the Blue
and Gold five.
The game starts at eight o'clock
at V.A.C. gym, on Saturday night.
There is another match carded for
the same night, between Sparlings
and Meralomas, and it may come
first, in which case the Varsity performers will take the floor immediately following.
At a meeting held by the Golf
Club Thursday noon, Lome Teetzel
was elected Secretary-Treasurer and
Louise  Herr, Vice-president.
The tournaments for the year were
outlined by the President, Bill Cas-
telton. He said that the Student-
Faculty match would not be played
this year, clue to a clash of timetables. The annual handicap tourney
will begin next week, and one of
the leading firms in town will donate
a cup or prize. The President also
stated that matches with teams from
the different Golf Clubs will be arranged,
A new feature of the club will be
a match between the men and women members.
The meeting came to a close with
sadly missed if he is not on the floor
for this game.
Freshettes Lose
To Upper Classes
In Snappy Meet
Amidst the deafening roars of
FIVE spectators, the Upper Class
Women defeated the Freshettes 35Va
to 21 Mi, in a very successful track
meet at the oval last Tuesday. One
record was broken, but as only one
official was present, the mark may
not be accepted.
Violet Mellish, with a fine leap of
IS feet 2Vs Inches, shattered the old
broad jump mark of 14 feet 8 Inches.
She also won the aggregate championship with a total of 11 points.
Bourne was second with 10 points.
Esther Paulin won a very closely-
contested 75 yard dash, with Kae
Bourne, suffering from a poor start,
close on her heels; VI Mellish was

Audrey was second; Kae Bourne was
Jean Thomas, of high school fame,
won the high jump at 4 feet 3 inches,
with Gladys Munton second; Mar-
orie Lang and Alice Jackson tied for
third  place,
Jean Thomas was second and Marjorie Lang third in the broad jump.
The relay was won by the Upper
Class Girls but the Freshettes put
up a good battle and were not far
behind at the finish.
Kae Bourne came from behind in
the exhibition quarter-mile to beat
Vi Mellish to the tape by 2 yards;
Marjorie  Lang was  a  close  third,
Castleton stating that unless more
golf tickets were sold, U.B.C. would
not have their annual match with
the University of Washington.

On Wednesday night last the Canadian Rugby team played
a game at Athletic Park. It was the last night game of the Big
Four Schedule., and for Varsity was the most important game of
the year. The boys had to win this game or lose all possible
chances of gaining the provincial title.
Realizing the importance of this contest, and realizing the
psychological value of student support, the members of the
Canadian Rugby Club executive made extensixe preparations
to sell student tickets and get a big crowd out to the game.
There was, however, no evidence on the campus of such
extensive preparations, and can you imagine why? The Faculty
Committee on Student Affairs advised the Students' CouncU
to the effect that the selling of Student tickets for a night game
in the mid-week would interfere with the scholastic endeavors
of the students to too great an extent. Consequently the box-
office in the Quad could not be used for the sale of tickets for
this game.
While we realize that this committee is working for the
students, and has the interest of the students at heart at all
times, we fail utterly in following their reasoning in the matter.
Apparently it is to be understood that if students attend a
night game in mid-week they would be taking too much time
from their studies. This must have been the attitude taken to
arrive at the above conclusion.
If this is their stand, it leaves many things unconsidered
and so appears inconsistent. For instance, how about the members of the team? Besides Wednesday night, they practice every
morning. What of the other teams on the campus? They all
devote many hours a week to practice as well as competing in
How about the members of the Students' Council? the
Players' Club? the Musical Society? and the Publications
Board? Do not the members of these bodies devote far more
of their time each week of the term to extra-curricular activities
than would be necessary to attend a game one night?
Our argument is that if these people are allowed to spend
their time in such pursuits at no apparent detriment to them-
seles (in most cases), why should those students who take no
time for other activities be prevented from taking one night on
a special occasion ta attend a major game?
Maybe you can figure it out but we fail to follow the reasoning.
