Gala Homecoming Ceremonies
Greet Students Of The Past
From Pep Meet To PotlatcK, It's A Week-end]
Of Giddy Whirl For Grads and Undergrads
Cheering students, band music, friendly greetings to students long gone from the campus but not forgotten—these are
the things which will set tho tempo for the Homecoming Celebrations this week-end.
Celebrations will get off to a good start with a large-scale
pep meet Friday noon, featuring Trevor Paige's orchestra and a
brand new set of cheer-leaders. For the past week, the girls
have been practising their yells and on Friday will really let
themselves go.
Grads and undergrads will get to-.^,   the game Is free to students with
gether once again at the Alumni
Banquet and Rally Friday evening in
Brock Hall, where they may dance
for hours to the music of Trevor
Paige' orchestra for as little as 75
cents  a  couple.
SAVE MONEY
However,     Charlie     Nash,     Junior
Member   in   chargo   of    Homecoming
arrangements wishes to make it quite
clear   that   this   price   of   75   cents   a
couple    applies    only    if    tickets     are
purchased    beforo    the   dance   at   the
A.M.S.  office or quad box office.    At
the   door,   admission   charges   will   be
raised  to   ONE   DOLLAR  a   couple.
Saturday will be one great succession    of    exciting    events.      At
noon,   athletes   will   assemble   for
tho Big Block Luncheon In Brock
Hall,   just   to   put   them   In   good
form for the football game at 3:15
p.m.     Incidentally,    admission    to
a pass and SO cents for everyone
else.
TEA DANCE
Following the game, students will
celebrate the victory of th-e Thunderbirds over the Vancouver Bulldogs
by trooping over to Brock Hall for
the tea dance, at which Sid Poulton
ond his Varsity orchestra will make
their debut for this year. Frances
White will vocalize, along with S>cl
himself.
However, all those events are
simply for the purpose of working up
to the climax—the varied and peppy
potlatch in the auditorium Saturday
evening. Dramatic presentations by
every typo of student, for every typo
of student, from freshman Artsman
to Senior Scl-enceman, music by Sid
Poultcn and his orchestra, a perfect
wind-up to a grand day—that's what
the   potlatch   will   mean.
POTLATCH PROGRAM
Tentative program for the big potlatch in the auditorium Friday night
consists of skits, songs and yells, sandwiched in between rhythmic selections by the Varsity Dance Orchestra.
Following the playing of "Hall
U.B.C." and one or two other songs
by tho orchestra, the Aggies wlU take
the floor with a first-class skit. The
next item will be the Engineers' skit
which, ln true Science style, will try
to surpass everything else on the program.
Item number three, the Grads'
Roll Call, will transfer the spotlight from the stage to the audience In an endeavour to let everyone know Just who of the old
crowd are back.
Following   closely   upon   a   vocalization by Francis White who will ap-
s>pear with tho orchestra, the Players'
Club will present a spicy one-act
comedy which has an interesting bedroom scene for Its main attraction.
PUBSTERS GOOD
Some mysterious individual whose
name has so far been withheld -will
conduct a one-man broadcast, after
which the best talent the Artsmen can
conjure up will appear ln a highly
entertaining skit.
Undoubtedly the most brilliant piece
of work on the program will be thc
Pub's March of Slime. Students will
find it well worth their while to sit
through the rest of the program when
such a colossal feature as this is in
storo for them.
The potlatch will conclude With a
grand finale by the orchestra.
Tradition Of '26 Carried
Out In Homecoming Of '40
By  Bill  Dawe
Homecoming is fourteen years old
this  week.
It was In October, 1926, a full two
years before the advent of Chang
Suey and Oscar Scrlbblewell in the
pages of the Ubyssey, that the students and the Alumni Association
merged their best efforts and brought
about the Inception of the celebration
which U.B.C. will observe this weekend.
But Homecoming, even as It -was
planned by the Braves of '28, has always meant something more than the
return of the old grads to their Alma
Mater. Through the years, this tradition has been a unifying and
strengthening influence upon not only
the Alumni, but also th-a undergraduates of each succeeding year.
When the tide of school "spirit" was
out somewhere in the vicinity of
Spanish Banks, Homecoming made
its initial bow and the student body
turned over  in its rut.
In some ways, the enthusiasm resulting from the discovery of the
Varsity "habeas corpus" is to be regretted. Witness this sample of Thoth
Club  journalism   of   the   time.
"Arrangements are now complete
for the Home Coming which is expected to be a humdlngvr of an entertainment. All the boys and girls
will be there just plum full of 'wim,
wlgour,   and   witallty' ".
Twenty-three   skiddoo   .   .   .
Farther down the same column
from the Ubyssey of November 5,
1926, one learns thot the big McKechnie Cup rugby game between Varsity
ond Vancouver Rep. which was to
open the Homecoming proceedings,
was in great need of everyone's support.
An article in bold-face type proclaimed that there would be no lectures for two days and then continued  to  list  a  very  attractive  pro
gram of entertainment. A few of
tho events mentioned were: two
basketball games followed by a cut-
in dance, the dedication of a Memorial Plaque on the Tennis Courts,
a "free-for-all" tea In the cnf., and
a mammoth concert to be presented
on Saturday evening in the auditorium. It is also noted that the Frosh
were ln complete charge of showing
visitors around  the campus.
Not until the following week, however, was the world Informed of the
fact that Homecoming had been proclaimed  a  "roaring  success".
By that time the news had leaked
out that the hard-working three-
piece orchestra had greased up a
little thing called "Each Man for
Himself" and had rendered helpless
a selection entitled "A Dream of
Love and You". Added to this was
a feature which must have been a
highlight of the evening, when a Miss
Mamie Maloney and friend favored
the audience with a rendition of
"When the Red. Red Robin Comes
a   Bob,   Bob  Bobbin".
With a ting, of either pride or regret the Ubyssey. recalls that its
Thoth Club presentation of a fetching Egyptian Ballet waa marred only
by an Impromptu Charleston of joy
which was dreamed up and presented by the journalistic Pr tests of
Thoth.
The Frosh, it Is said, sang "Crazy
over Freshettes"; gave their yell,
and treated their listeners to a mouth
organ  selection.
At the close of the Homecoming
ceremonies on the following Monday,
the Graduating Classes of 1926
presented the Library with a trophy
case. They expressed the hope that
the university spirit which had prevailed among them during the four
or five previous years would continue to connect them with the tradition  and  activities of  U.B.C.
Senior Classes
Pay Tribute
To Wesbrook
A ring of senior students standing
around the impressive stone Wesbrook memorial seat before the
library bowed their heads, Wednesday noon, ln tribute to the spirit of
Dr. Frank Wesbrook, founder and
flrst president of the University.
A tradition of 15 years standing,
the Wesbrook ceremony kept green
the memory of the unselfish president   who   shortened   his   life   In   the
service   of his  adopted Alma  Mater.
•
Dr. Joseph Crumb of the department of economics, honorary
head of thc Senior class, paid
glowing tribute to Dr. Wesbrook,
his achievements, his ambitions
and his disappointments.
The story of the Alma Mater, ha
aaid, is bound up with the story of
Dr.   Wesbrook's   life.
Dr. Crumb voiced the hope that in
the not too distant future, Dr. Wesbrook's unfulfilled ambition of the
greatest and most adequately equipped university in the world, would
become  a   reality   at   Point  Grey.
Following Dr. Crumb's address, he
and Derek McDermott. president of
th-e Senior class, laid a wreath of
flowers on the Wesbrook seat. Then
a party of students drove out to
Mountain View Cemetary to lay a
wreath on th-e tomb of the late
president.
TOTEM PICTURES
Unless senior students wish to
have photos taken down town
at a greater cost, they must
make appointments with Artona
In Brock Hall Immediately. This
la final.
Girls must wear white blouses
when having pictures taken.
Gowns will be supplied.
Of particular interest to old grads
returning to the Campus this weekend ls the news that Dr. Ashton,
former head of the Modern Languages Department Is now lecturing
at Cambridge University, and has
volunteered for the Home Ouard of
Cambridge.
He was head of the department at
U.B.C. from its Inauguration until
1933, and Is well known to hundreds
of   former   students.
In a recent letter he spoke of the
admlrable spirit ond comradeship of
both students and masters at the
University,   during th-e   present   crisis.
FATIGUE DUTY
HITS CAF CROWD
Students taking baeic training aro
finding that there Is more actual
work than drill to being a soldier.
There is no kitchen duty, washing
dishes, peeling spuds, etc., but still,
there  is  work.
All week, unsuspecting Caf-llzards
have found themselves rudely inter-
upted by concentration squads, with
"Doing anything?—thought not—just
follow us", and hours of rifle-cleaning follow, commonly known as F.D.
(fatigue-duty). Oil, metal polish,
elbow grease—plenty of these are
needed, for the hundreds of rifles
have never been used since the last
war—and have collected 22 years' of
the grime and dust of disuse.
O.C. PLEASED
Colon-el Shrum is delighted with
the enthusiasm shown by the C.O.T.C.
training classes so far. He says that
they are just as eager as the volunteers were last year, and display far
more co-operation than is to be expected   from   a  conscript   unit.
Meanwhile,  rifle-cleaning continues.
Musical Society Plans
Gilbert Opera 'Pinafore7
Singers In  Tune  With Times As Plans Go
Forward For Presentation Of
Lilting Sea Opera
A sailor's life for me !
The Musical Society, in tune with the war consciousness
of the campus, have chosen Gilbert and Sullivan's rousing opera
"H.M.S. Pinafore" for their annual Spring production.
This ever popular musical comedy, emphasizing that symbol of British supremacy "the pride and joy of the King's navee"
is expected to be especially well received at this time when
thoughts are so much with the British Navy.
Amidst  an  atmosphere of  gob caps<|>new   acquisitions   from   the   Interior,
and brass buttons, salt spray, blown
spume and the tang of the sea, th-e
Mus Soccers are already holding regular practices to assure the success
of the production.
MAD MIX-UP
The humorous story, told in lilting
songs of the sea and soft romantic
ballads, concerns the romances of
Josephine the beautiful daughter of
one  Copt.   Corcoran.
Josephine's hero Is the dashing and
handsome seaman, Ralph Rickstraw.
But it's not as simple as that, The
plot Is thickened by Josephine's having already refused the advances of
the rather ancient and pavinchy First
Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph
Porter.
Tho complications are obvious but
the solution will have to wait till
next   Spring.
Mr. C. Hayclyn Williams, capable director of many Musical Society hits In the past, reports that
that all departments are well up
to standard, and expects this year's
production to be just as good as
ever.
Marygold Nash, golden-voiced soprano who stole the hearts of students
and public alike in the "Serenade"
two years ago, has returned to thc
campus after a year's absence and
will be  a definite asset to the cast.
Other   co-ed  stalwarts available  for
solo parts are Marjorie Ussher, Margaret Haggart   and  Mildred  Twiss.
NEW TALENT
The male section is also strong,
despite the strain of military training. Among the many men attending
rehearsals are such outsadlng singers
of former years as Tatsuo Sanmiya,
John Qulgley, Doug Ford and Derek
McDermott.
Described as "sensations" by business manager Fred Middleton are twe

British Women
Do Men's Work
-Fly Planes
"Women In England today not only
wear th-a clothes of men but also havo
taken on their jobs," said Mrs. Alice
Hemming, a former student of U.B.C,
who spoke to the Women's Undergraduate Society Wednesday noon on
the work the different women's auxiliaries are doing.
Members of the Airforce Auxiliary
did exceptional work during the
fighting tn France when they flew
across the Channel and if an _nemy
plgne did appear they had no protection. This Auxiliary is now being
used to taxi planes to and from airfields.
Speaking about the Women's
Ambulance Corps, Mrs, Hemming
said the members have to be exceptional drivers to paas the tests.
They also did work In France, especially In the evacuation of Dunkirk. They were given no preference over the men and underwent
all hardships. Many of them
were decorated for conspicuous
bravery.
Mrs. Hemming in closing said that
the work of the Canadian college
girl was not to knit socks, although
It helps a great deal, but to develop
their personality in such a manner
as to make them fitted to take tbelr
responsibilities in the Post War Period. Page Two

Homecoming
Welcome home ! That Is the cry this weekend as graduates flock back to the campus
from various parts of the province and from
farther afield. To tread the familiar walks
and corridors will bring back many memories
to them, memories that have become even more
pleasant by the passing of time. Most of them,
of course, are not far removed from their college days: this is still a young university, and
few of its graduates are over fifty or fifty-five.
But it is the part of the undergraduate to welcome them back, to make them feel as much at
home as they ever did, to help them recover
the old youthful spirit of their college days.
Homecoming means a great deal to graduates. For one of such college days are among
the most important in his life, and he will never
forget them. At university, he first began to
think for himself, he formed habits that would
be important for the rest of his life, he made
lasting friendships, perhaps he even fell in love,
or out of it again. A return to the scene of
such an important period in his life will recall
many of these half-forgotten things to his
mind, and will bring back ideas and plans that
were never carried out. When he attends the
various functions of the Homecoming program,
he will be back with the crowd in the old
hilarious days.
For the undergraduate, Homecoming of
course does not yet mean so much. He sees
a chance of enjoying himself, and vaguely
notices strange faces around the campus.
If he is at all thoughful, he will realize
that in a year or two, with luck, he may be
back himself to a Homecoming Rally. The days
are certainly passing quickly enough — he
turns around and a week has gone: perhaps
he will be out in the world before he expects.
The days that are going so quickly now will be
memories then.
At this Homecoming, undergraduates
should do everything possible to give the
alumni a good time. ' They must remember
that the graduates know very few undergraduates and would appreciate a true U.B.C. welcome home with friendliness and good-humour
on the part of all. The undergraduates are the
ones that will make this affair a success. It is
up to all of us to welcome them warmly.
A very good program has been arranged
this year, and we think that commendations are
due to everybody connected with the arranging of these functions. Charlie Nash particularly, who as Junior Member is in charge of
Homecoming, has worked hard and deserves
a great deal of credit. There are items to suit
everybody, and all very inexpensive to suit
war-shrunken purses. The work has been
done; everything is ready; now it is for us to
enjoy ourselves.
THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, October 25, 1940
Training
Military training has fitted into university
life with a minimum of disorder and disruption of academic work. Saturday afternoon
training has brought no complaints from the
students, and the officers are reported to be
quite satisfied with results so far. Military
lectures which have been fitted in to' suit all
timetables, are proving of considerable interest to students, particularly some of the optional lectures of the basic training group.
In fact, the University of Saskatchewan is
still talking over the question of inter-collegiate
athletics. The Sheaf reports that the action of
the universities of Alberta, B.C. and Manitoba
cancelling all such sports came as a surprise to
Saskatchewan.
This Colle3e Whirl
By Cycle
A FAIRY TALE
Once upon a time there lived a freshman
who, in ignorance, thought that college. life
meant no more than the ambition of knowledge and the application of the nose to the
grindstone, the eye to the future, and the mind
to graphs and curves. He made high marks.
He memorized facts.
He returned to the professors what they
gave him. He sought no person's society. Nobody sought his. He joined no club. He did
not dance, go to parties, to theatres, or to roller
rinks. He lived alone. In his shell. And In
that shell there were illusions for our freshman dreamed great dreams of future accomplishment. In so dreaming he livdd an oft-
repeated quotation: "He is a genius with his
future behind him."
This freshman graduated and attained his
goal in life — a niche and a retreat from
reality where he dreamed great dreams;
thought beautiful thoughts; painted his mind
with abstracts and attempted to repress all distractions.    Women and all that.
To society, to science, to culture he contributed nothing. His education and training
are valueless. His mind was nothing but a
receptacle for a maze of facts. It was a reservoir fed by many channels and emptied by
one. His adjustment to an inexorable society
was not complete. Most likely it will never,
be.
For him life was the attribution of his
education and hence was necessarily disillusioning (cf Schopenhauer).
FRESHIES
A month has passed since the University
re-opened to amuse and bewilder another crop
of freshies. The freshettes, part of their
glamour stripped from them, have fitted themselves, best as they can, into what social life
there is. The freshman, willingly or otherwise, have fitted into the military scheme,
which is common to all University campuses in
the Dominion of Canada. During his month
of adjustment he has noticed, weighed, and
valued phases of university life — sciencemen
excluded, for the values of a scienceman are
indeterminate.
The first institution he encountered was
Frank Underbill's Caf, known officially as the
University Grill. After staying there more
than one week the freshie must have wondered, and with some justification, at the sanity
and decency of some of his Immediate superiors.
Now, the freshie is, in reality, an innocent
bit of humanity. He absorbs dangerous ideas
and habits while he goes through the process
of acquiring an education.    Remember this.
Seeing the snarling, packed, humid mob
that lives, studies, and romances from one
table to another in the Caf, Freshie acquires
dangerous idea number one. (Jabez old man,
you are the psychologist. Is a freshman really
a thing with a mind of its own? Has it the
ability to make its own impressions?)
INFLUENCES
Now this dangerous idea number one Is
subversive. Freshie is confused so much by
paradoxes. He knows that a caf is a place to
eat in. He has dined in Purdy's, Hudson Bay
Grill, and even at Greasy Joe's; but never in
those eateries did he bring in his entire wardrobe. But at UBC, due to the influence of his
insidious friends, he drifts into a melancholia.
He meets the gang or the gal in the Caf, whiffles a coke, does a problem in math one, listens attentively to a spice of juicy gossip and
goes home—eventually.
Now look, freshie, old thing — Frank
Underbill's Caf Is a caf, a place to eat. It
is not a rendezvous. It Is not a place to
toss your papers, cigarette butts, wrappers,
orange peels, and apple cores. Be yourself,
and act like you do at home. Do not follow that pernicious doctrine, "when in
Rome do as the Romans do."
On the other hand, remember that your
teachers, sophs, juniors, and seniors are fallible and that in following them blindly you
acquire dangerous habits, easy to take but hard
to get rid of.
Here at home, hockey is looking forward
to a big season in spite of crowded timetables,
and other sports that once made use of Saturday afternoons are carrying on as best they
may. We wish them luck. In days like these,
we can best help by carrying on.
In a recent poll of their campus, the University of Washington Daily announced that
Washington students gave Roosevelt the edge
in the forthcoming election. They went on
record as 50' ,' in favour of a Democratic victory, 37'; for Wilkie, 5'r for Thomas, 1',' for
Browder, yet opposed a third term 57—35.
OPEN   rocuM
Student Opinion
The  Editor,   "Ubyaaey",
University of Rrltish Columbia,
Vancouver,  B,  C.
During the past few days the campus has been considerably upset over
the Imposition of a atlff penalty on
a fraternity for Illegal rushing. It
was unavoidable that much illwill
has been engendered. It now behooves us to consider what effect
the whole affair will have on the welfare of fraternities and life ln general
on the campus.
Por a number ot years there has
been a great deal of illegal ruahing
on this campus, a situation which
each fraternity was anxious but
powerless to correct. Last year' a
new Inter Fraternity Council constitution waa drawn up ln the hope that
certain malconducts be eliminated.
Now for the first time the constitution haa been put to the test. There
will be unanimoua satisfaction that
the new regulations have held water
and have the power to prevent illegal rushing.
There are certain obvious weaknesses in the constitution. Interpreted
widely, lt gives the president of the
Inter Fraternity Council power to lm-
pos_ any fine or penalty he sees fit.
If he can impose a penalty forbidding
one fraternity to bid two men for
one year, he can also impose a penalty forbidding a fraternity from bidding any men for five years, a penalty which, if enforced would wipe
the fraternity off the campus. The
constitution should be amended to establish definite limits on fines and
penalties.
It is not my intention to discuss
the particular case in point. Th-*ro
will always be, in every case, a difference of opinion regarding the severity of the penalty. We of coursj
feel that we were the martyr ln thi
case   and    were    probably     no     more
LONGER RECESS
The faculty Council, at a meeting
on October 23rd, passed a resolution
that the morning interval between
the second and third lecture periods
be extended from 5 minutes to 10
minutes—the second period to end at
10.23 a.m., and the third period to
begin  at  10.33  a.m.
This change will com. into effect
Monday  morning.
PLAYER'S  CLUB
Saturday night, October 26, as part
of the program of Homecoming, the
Players' Club is going to put on a
short on-o-scene farce entitled "Husbands are so Jealous", by Harris
Doans. This charming bedroom scene
is   directed   by   Sidney   Pisk.
The cast consists of three actors
only. Nancy Bruce plays the beautiful young wife, Bud Cummings h_r
husband, and Lister Sinclair thc
suave   intruder.
To quote Lister Sinclair, "The play
will appeal to the predatory instincts
of the student body." This, and the
fact that the title ls self-explanatory,
is all that can be disclosed.
Meeting of the Players' Club costume committee today at 12:30 In the
Greenroom, the following girls are
ask-ed  to  be  there,
Lucy Berton, Norma Bew, Nancy
Bruce, Mlnta Buigin, Denlse Darling,
Mary Drury, Wally Olen, Marjorie
Jack, Jeanne MacDiarmid, Barbara
McQueen, Florence Mercer, Betty

MINING MEETING
From Nov. 13-15 the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy will
hold its fall meeting. The president
of this organization, also M.tals Controller for Canada, will deliver an Important address.
The public is Invited to attend the
meeting. Various social functions will
take place; namely, three offlelal
luncheons, an entertainment on the
evening of Nov. 13. a supper dance
Nov. 14, the annual dinner Nov. 15,
and a visit to the Imperial Oil Refinery the same afternoon.
guilty than several other fraternities.
But that is not to the points—there had
to be a case and a severe penalty if
the constitution was to be tested and
the welfare of all fraternities guarded. We were found guilty and we
have been punished and we propose
to take it in good part, hoping that
the incident will ba the means of
ushering in a new era in the fraternity rushing.
As for the ill-feeling which accompanied the discussion, it would be
well for ua all to forget lt. There had
to be an Informant, there had to be
a judge and there had to be a de-
fendent, and it -was only natural that
some feeling would result. However,
lt is all over now and there la no
fraternity of this campus which ls
not big enough to forget the details
and work toward the common goal
of better rushing practices and improved intar-fraternlty relations of
the  campus.
Yours truly,
William Wallace.

EOOKSTO.PE   FLOOR
CHAPTER V.
THE SOUND OF A MIGHTY RUSHING WIND
OR
HOW ABNER SNAFFLEBALM PERSUADED
CLAUDIUS GOLDCHTPS TO PLEDGE
ALPHALFA HAY
Wing-Jing in hand, the fiend Chang<t>CLEVER MAN
Suey advanced on the cringing Oscar
Scrlbblewell, who shook like a grass
skirt in a high wind.
Th-e reporter's escape looked as impossible   aa   a  treshette's   chances  of
passing a Chem 22 mid-term, for Suey
was between him and the door of the
underground  chamber.   But,  terrified
aa he was, Oscar's two- mouse power
brain waa functioning at capacity.
Wtth a sudden deft movement of
of his trembling wrist, he yanked
the portable Remington from hla
vest pocket and hurled It at the
celling    light.     The    room    was
plunged Into darkness.
A  wlng-jlng swished  past  the  reporter's left  ear  as  he   leaped  aside
and dashed to the door, but in three
jumps he was paat the fiend and out
in the corridor.
Down the dimly-lit passageway he
whizzed, feeling like a military objective in Dover, for the evil Chang
aimed wing-jing after wlng-jlng In
his wake.
DOORS,  DOORS
But luckily for Mrs. Scrlbblewell
who loved her little boy despite hl3
cauliflower ears, a sudden bend In
the passageway brought him out of
the line of fire. In front of him were
a long row of doors. He snatched
open the nearest one, and found himself in  a  small,  dusky  room.
Outside was the muffled wail of a
siren calling Chang Suey's guards to
search the secret passageways for the
fugitive. Down the corridor they
rushed like Artsmen late for a Freddy Wood lecture, and the reporter
heard them opening and shutting the
other doors.
Oscar   flattened   himself   against
the wall as a vlclous-looklng oriental   protruded   a   cranium   Into
his haven.    But In the dim light
the churl missed seeing the reporter, and Oscar could breathe more
easily after the fellow had gone.
Gradually    the    corridor    began    to
sound less like the Common Room at
12:30,   but   Oscar still   dared  not  venture  from  his cubby-hole.
The rapid events of the past hour
had dazed him, but now he had time
to consider them. One fact stood out
—despite the efforts of the Clean-up
Campaigners ond the Discipline Committee, the evil Chang Su-ey was
back on the campus. And what was
worse, he hod forsaken his old headquarters in the Library sewers for
this moden network of rooms and
passageways beneath the Brick
Building.
"Not much wonder the Brick cost
more than $80,000," meditated Oscai',
"when these secret tunnels have indirect lighting and hardwood floors."
The observant fellow had noticed
these details as he sped through the
halls.
He knew now that Alarlc the Hick
and Chang Suey were the same parson, but he still didn't know who had
been with Chang Suey that night ln
the Bookstore or who the corpse waa
or where it waa now or whether the
Thunderbirda would beat Victoria
Saturday.
He also didn't know how on earth
he waa going to get out of the passages without being stabbed by a
wlng-jlng.
Suddenly the dusky little room
filled with a brilliant light, flowing
through a long glass panel. Beyond
the panel the reporter could see a
large chamber into which were slowly filing the Dirty Nine.
FILTHY NEUF
With a shudder Oscar realized that
it was Monday night; the time when
the Tin Gods met to gloat over their
wicked deeds. The cell he was in
was Chang's secret observation post,
and he was now to see one of these
awful gatherings never yet witnessed
by   a   living   undergraduate.
On. by one the black-gowned figures slunk Into the room, bowing low
as they passed an alter where arl'id
fumes of burning incense the status
of the great god Quorum stood. As
the last of the Dirty Nine cam-
through the doorway Oscar's heart
did a double flip-flop, for behind
them came another whom he feared
more than any living creature—th.
Terrible Tenth, Supreme High Priest
of Troth and Ruler of the Dirty
Rag.
(What horrible rites Is Oscar
about to witness? What are the
Dirty Nine and their chums cooking up now? And will Oscar escape? Reserve your copy of next
week's Ubyssey from the nearest
bannister post  now.)

Cops Out-Shoot
Varsity  2-1
In a pouring rain Varsity's "A"
entry in the W-dnesday Soccer
League lost their flrst game 2 to 1
to the petroling policemen, at Con
Jones  Park.
Despite their early lead,  when Ben
Herd   scored   in   the   flrst   half,    the
U.B.C. squad was shaded in the final
quarter  by  the   galloping  cops.    Red
MacDonell talll-d twice for the police
and one of the goals was really lucky.
Charlie   Hltchens,   coach   of   the
gold  and  blue  boys,  stated  "The
boys would have easily won except for the muddy Held."
HERD SCORES
Scoring was opened ln the first half
when Ben Herd took a paas from a
teammate to plant the ball ln the
upper left comer and put Varaity ln
the  lead.
Tho Police, lead by the speedy forward Red MacDonell, tallied to tie
the score. Th-e Cops' second goal, obtained with just seven minutes to go,
was tipped  in  by MacDonell   again.
Outstanding for the Varsity roundballers were Stu Roach, Sasaki, Robertson  ond  Jack   Rush.
The next gome is this Wednesday
on   the  campus.
Team llno-up — Don McLean,
goalio Roach and Wallace as fullbacks; Sasaki, Rush, Robertson as
halts; and North, Goodman, Young,
Todd and Herd as tho forwards.

PUCKSTERS CATCH BERTH
IN INTER-CITY LOOP
Varsity's Ice Hockey team, while being admitted to the
Intercity Amateur Ice Hockey league, has learned that the
New Westminster Cubs, last year's champions, will definitely
not play this year if the U.B.C. pucksters are allowed to remain
in and make a five team loop.
The Cubs position was defended by<$-
their manager. Ken McKenzie, who | Cubs, and Fraser Mills. Exhibition
stated, "It doesn't leave a team enough home games to pay it's way.
We're not against Varsity, but we
don't want Ave teams in th. league,
and would, protest regardless of
whose team the fifth one was. It's
either us or Varsity. If they play then
we drop  out."
However, according to the league
secretary,   Ted   Ross,   the   Intercity commission has heard no news
of the Cubs attitude to date, and
Is   going   ahead   with   plans   for
drawing   up   the   league   schedule
on a five team basis.
TRAVEL TO NANAIMO
The   other   teams   to   play   in   the
league are announced as the R.C.A.F.,
Ted Scott Wins
Cross-Country *
The cross country sponsored by
the mighty Van Vllet was held Monday despite the poor turnout and was
won by Ted Scott.
This is the second time that tho
theological Scott has won the annual
event.
After the 2M.  mile  grind,  Scott
sprinted   hard   In   the   stretch   to
win   over   his   nearest   rival   Bob
Davidson.     Jack   Bakony    was   a
close third.
Time for the race was 16; 45, much
slower than the usual time as the
poor weather slowed th-e route. Only
eight hardy souls braved the weather
to run. The Anglican College got
flrst   place   with   the   Arts'   43  second.
games will be held in Nanaimo as the
soldier team on the Island can't travel. These games will be counted in
the   league   standing.
The man that's really responsible
for getting Varsity into the league Is
Cyclone Taylor. Taylor, who has a
son atending the University, announces that he will coach the U.B.C.
team. The other two sons of the
Cyclone, while not attending Varsity,
have offered their services to the
gold and blue squad, and hava already   attended   several   workouts.
League games will be played twice
a week, Tuesdays at the Royal city
and  Fridays at th-e  Forum.

Teagle Returns To The Fold As Van Vliet
Again Switches Line-Up; One More Clash
With Revellers Will Finish League
The Mamooks can trot out those pretty co-ed cheer leaders
and the HomeccTming Grads can settle back to witness a victory, because the Thunderbirds are headed for a big win in that
game of games on Saturday.
Man is to bite dog. The Thunderbirds have sharpened
their teeth, all set to clamp them on the Bulldogs for the second
time in a week.
The offense is revamped, the defense is strengthened,
and the Red and White of Vancouver had better come well
prepared.
VAN VLIET SHIFTS BACKFIELD
Coach Maury Van Vliet, taking heed from the narrow win
last week, has pulled the backfield apart and added a man to
the line on defense.
Freshman Ray Gorman, who made a star of himself at fullback last Saturday, has been shifted to halfback. From there
he is expected to lead a wide open attack. Gorman is the one
who carried the pigskin for so many gains last week.
There is a rumour about that, if the weather is fine,
Graham Finlay may uncork plenty of forward passes. ..It
was his pass to Carmlchael that brought about the Winning
touchdown in the last game with Vancouver.
TEAGLE RETURNS AS FULLBACK
Ernie Teagle, returned from the injured list, will fill the
fullback spot, thus adding punch for the attack and experience
for the defense.
Former fullback, Bud Falrgrieve, suffered a strained back
muscle in the first few minutes on Saturday and is probably
out for the season.
All week Maury has been drilling the boys on pass defense
(and possibly offense). Seven men, instead of the former six,
will move into the line for defense when (and if) the Bulldog
attack is set off.
ONE MORE GAME WITH VICTORIA
It was expected that this Homecoming game would be
the last of the season. One more game, however, is now planned with Victoria Revellers, conquerors of U.B.C. on Thanksgiving.
This additional tilt  will  be  held  Saturday  week at
Athletic Park.
In case of two more Varsity victories, the team will be tied
with Victoria for the league lead. In that case, a playoff is
very indefinite.
The footballers who are to provide the excitement for the
Grads will be excused from military training after roll call so
that they will be in prime shape for the stadium grind.

ART BARTON—forward, 6 ft., 170
lbs. "Lefty" was one of the mainstays of the champion Senior Bees

is In will give plenty of worry to the
opposition.
JACK ROSS—centre, 6 ft. 1 in., 180
lbs. Played for Senior A's three years
