A.M.S. Aid To Red Cross
Subject Of Meeting
Support Sought
By Council for
Wartime Drive
The reoently opened oampaign under the sponsorship of the Red Oross
and Vanoouver Welfare Association
will, if the student body of the University of British Columbia agrees,
be supported by the Alma Mater Sooiety.
At the meeting Monday night, the
Student Counoil deolded that the
following suggestion be put up for
approval to the A.M.S. meeting to
be held November 91 s That the students make an aotual contribution,
the full sum to be given ih the name
of the Alma Mater Sooiety, to the
Red Cross Fund for 1989-40,
It was stipulated In a spsolflo manner  that the  Alma   Mater   Sooiety
contribution  be  made   to  the   Red
Cross fund only.
This Counoil dlsousslon aroaa after
tbe Counoil met Mr. R. H. Tupper,
manager of the preaent funds drive,
at a speolal meeting laat Wednesday
noon. The Counoil laat night oame
to the conclusion that members of
the Alma Mater Sooiety would appreciate this opportunity to take an
aotual part in making the present
wartime drive of the Red Cross a
Counoil members felt that an Alma
Jtffcter Sooiety meeting must be held
as soon as possible for students to
give corporate consideration to th*
matter, and consequently the apecial
moating of the Alma Mater Sooiety
haa been called by President John
Pearson, on -the resolution of the
Counoil, for Tuesday, November 91,
1989, at 11.4B a.m. in the Auditorium
for the purpose of considering the
entire question of making the Red
Cross contribution, depending upon
the opinion of the students.
It was hoped by tbe Counoil that
leotures would be cancelled from
11.80 In the morning on Tuesday, November 91.

staff who was In London at the
outbreak of war.)
(LONDON, Eng., Sept. 9.)—The
night before the declaration of war,
a terrific rainstorm drenched southern England. In London, crowds
thronged the West-end sidewalks in
excited, nervous mood. Night, and the
pitch-darkness of blackout, needled
this excitement with a giddy quality
—with small pedestrian collisions,
gigglings ln doorways, busses Jammed
with roaring passengers.
Inside a brasserie ot) the Strand,
large and brightly Ut, the musio Was
zestful and loud; cutlery rattled,
glasses clinked. Such a place gains
immensely In Intimacy and cheer
since its entrance had been darkened
and narrowed and screened and hung
with heavy curtains. The checked
cloths, the orchestra ln red and green
corduroy, the laughter, the sporadic
singing, all seem brighter, more clear-
Officers and their ladies sat at
small tables with buckets of iced
champagne, in a fashion that recalls
the Innumerable war-movies, mostly
with Frederic March. The band played tunes that have become pre-war:
South of the Border, Deep Purple,
Donkey Serenade; clear trumpet and
smooth violins, in Viennese-style orchestrations.
Later on. before midnight, from a
theatre in Adelphi, we faltered along
alleys and stairways back to the
Strand. Rain was pelting down on the
crowds that elbowed their way along
the pavement, squealing with alarm
and excitement.
Thunder muttered; a dry, death-
blue lightning flash cracked open the
well of darkness over Trafalgar
Square, right ahead, and gleamed for

For some time the quartet haa
been a popular feature on the network of the C.B.C. Indeed these
competent performers are a musical

famous European string quartets.
Boris Hambourg, cellist, and Milton
Blackstone, violinist, studied under
the great Belgian master, Ysaye.
They are the two original players,
and beoause of their training have
been able to make the quartet a flrst-
musioal group.
Ths climax of the many honours
bestowed on them came in 1987. During the ooronatlon ceremonies in
London they were invited to play in

Assembly Reps
To Be Selected
In order to make the. U.B.C. delegation to the Third National Conference of Canadian University students
as representative as possible, the
Canadian Student Assembly haa extended an Invitation to aU L.8E.
clubs to send delegates to a meeting
Thursday In Arts 100. All other Interested students are also Invited to attend the meeting, which will eleot a
representative oonferenoo oommittee
to draft plans for a campus delegation.
The National Conference of Canadian University Studenta is held every
other year, for the purpose ot discussing problems which affect all
studenta. It operates under the Canadian Student Assembly. This year's
conference will be held In the East
during the Christmas season.
The theme of the Conference this
year will be "National Unity and
Bducation." A. conferenoe committee
representing ten universities has decided upon the following main topics
for discussion:
"National Unity and Manhood,"
dealing with cultural, economic, and
■social problems.
"Canada ln World Affairs," dealing
with Canada's war alms.
"Improving   University   Education."
"Extending   University   Education."
Pre-conference round-table  discussions in which all students may participate,  will  be  held  on  every   university campus. Delegates to the conference may  be selected  from  these.
Although  the   final   decision  for  the
conference location has not yet been
made, it will probably  take place ln
the Ontario-Quebec region.
The National Conference Committee consists of one delegate from
t very university ln Ontario and Quebec. Co-ordinating committees, representing western Universities met
this summer in Winnipeg.
U.B.C. sent 20 delegates to the 1937
conference. Today's meeting will help
decide, on the number of delegates
this year and on the method of financing them.
The long awaited Student
Directory is now here. * This
valuable book Is now obtainable at the A.M.S. office for the
small stun of loo.
A University chapel service, open
to all students of the University will
be held tomorrow at 4 p.m. at Union
College chapel.
Theme of the servloe wUl be "The
Reality of Christian Belief," and representatives of the Student Christian
Movement, Varsity Christian Union,
Anglican Theological OoUege and
Union Theological Oollege will speak
briefly on the relevance of Christianity to present day problems.
The servloe will be the seoond ot
its kind held on the campus. The
flrst was held at Union Oollege last
year, with the object of bringing religious groups On the oampus into
closer oo-operation with one another.
As a result of its success, it was
decided by the groups participating
to make the joint service an annual
event, open to members of the four
organizations and all other studenta
who cared to attend.
Archie Morrison, of the Anglican
College, will conduct the service, and
student speakers will be Joyce Carter
of the S.C.M., Norah Hughes of Union College, and Dave Ellis of the

Preparations Swing- Into Action With
Pep Rally Featuring Ole Olson and
Skits by Both Faculties
At noon today, about the same
time the Blue edition of the Ubyssey
hits the oampus, the Arts-Aggie pep
meet will swing into action In the
Auditorium, Featuring the smooth
rhythms of Ole Olson's orchestra,
the contented moo of the Aggie oalf,
hilarious skits by both faculties, and
the usual oollege oheers and songs
(exoept for those dealing with Science), the meeting will serve to
arouse atudent enthusiasm for
Thursday's Danoe of Tomorrow.
Ole Olson's famous arrangements
of Strauss waltaes will form the
nucleus of the meet. Orchestrations
of university songs will also be featured.
Because of failure to And the
Aggie cow, Brunhllde (a wloked report states she can be obtained for
a amall sum at Joe's Hamburger
kitchen), the Aggie facility announced yesterday that they would hold
a speolal interview with one of
Brunhllde's offspring. He(?) wtll appear on the auditorium stage for a
brief period.
The much publicised Arts skit will
satirise the aotlon of the Students'
Counoil In dispensing with the Arts-
Aggie sweetheart. Rumour states
that Chang Suey will make a brief
appearance during this aot.
A musical aeleotion between Mr.
Trylon and Mr. Perlsphere will oil-

Prominent Arts/Aggie Executive
Member, who was responsible for
most of the execution of this issue,
passed slowly away last night after
an acute attack of severe science-
mensia vongeansia. The ex-gentleman was prominent ln campus
squeaking circles and also was noted
for his acute tendency towards 'res
femina blonclae', dread Artsmen's
disease. He is survived by two cats,
a white mouse, one political discussions club, and his brainchild—this
issue. Interment will be in the University Orill Waste-Basket Depository.

Below This Head
Following a custom whieh has become habitual in most of the
Eastern Canadian universities, the Ubyssey is today clothed in
different dress In order to celebrate the annual union of the Arts-
men and Aggies.
Onoe a session these two faculties join together to stage the
famous Arts-Aggie Ball, the one major social function of the Fall
term. This is the flrst year that the Ubyssey has been so generous
as to hand over the production of the paper to representatives of
the two groups.   May the action prove sucoessful 1
In the past years special efforts have always been made to
accommodate the Soienoemen of the campus, and last year the
Soience Issue was printed in an incredible red ink. The Artsmen
and Aggies have agreed to have their ' brainchild' printed in a
royal blue ink.   Seeing is believing t
The Arts-Aggie Ball is to be held in the Commodore Cabaret
on Thursday night, and will doubtless be a great success. The ball
has always been a dignified type of affair, with an atmosphere of
sobre relaxation. It is one of the aristocrats of Varsity's social
Congratulations, then, to the executive committee of the two
faculties, and good luck to the Arts-Aggie Ball.
Social functions of this University are always intended to be
totally teetotal affairs. The regulations of the University prohibit
the consumption of any intoxicating liquors '' either on the campus
or at University functions," and also state that "any person appearing on the University campus or at any University function
while showing any evidence of having consumed intoxicating
liquor shall be subjeot to penalty."
It would not be possible to have the policy of the various
authoritative bodies of the University more clearly defined or outlined. Yet complete disregard of these regulations has been exhibited already during the present session, not by a large group of
students, but by a few imprudent men who spend too little time
in meditation upon tho possible consequences of their lack of
It is gratifying to note that' the Student Discipline Committee
is determined to take action after the behavior of several students
attending a University function lost week. It is difficult for any
committee which is responsible for the discipline of tho campus to
levy heavy fines upon students, who ore probably well known on
the campus, and who are comparatively close friends of the members of the committee. But this unfortunate situation must inevitably arise in all matters of student behavior.
The regulations whieh will govern the use of the Brock Building are going to be much more severe than any present regulations,
and the Discipline Committee will be the body responsible for the
enforcement thereof. Students would do well, therefore, to pay
attention in the future, to the regulations of the Alma Mater
Society, and to treat the Discipline Committee with appropriate
It has been decided to hold another meeting of the Canadian
Student Assembly during tho Christmas holidays at some university in eastern Canada. The actual place for the conference has
not yet been chosen, but the dates are definitely set as December 27
to December 31.
There are apparently three main plans which will provide the
basis for conference activities, the maintenance of facilities
whereby students, who would ordinarily be unable to continue
their university careers on account of monetary difficulties, may
remain in attendance at university; Canadian national unity, and
Canadian politics; and the Democratic system.
Each subject is, of course, subdivided into groups. Andre
Bachand, writing in Lebdo-Laval of October 20, 1939, mentions
these more detailed ideas.
Under the flrst of the three matters for consideration he gives
two examples: the pursuit of the campaign for student bursaries,
and bringing pressure to bear on Provincial Governments to continue their grants to universities; under tho second, four examples:
more inter-university reports, deeper study of our administrative
systems, and of Federal-Provincial relations, and above all a detailed study of tho Statute of Westminster; nnd under the third
one: the rights whieh a Democratic system confers,
It is clear from this discussion of the aims of the Conference
that there is a wealth of material to be considered, and that a
reasonable amount of preparatory work must be done by the
student groups which propose to send delegates.
There is already a group on this campus ready to organize a
•delegation from the University of British Columbia. The question
of finance .will bo a formidable obstacle, and choice of delegates
•with an adequate knowledge of tho matters to be discussed may
■well prove to be a, problem.
A meeting is to be held on Thursday at 12.30 p.m. to talk over
the entire situation, and possibly to elect an executive which will
give its full time to tho heavy work which such conferences involve.
Kvery student organization on the campus is invited to send
n representative to this organization meeting, and every student
is nsked to give his or her support to the meeting, Students
throughout the nation form quite an important body of opinion,
and a conference) of this type eould be of great value not only to
the universities of Canada, but also to the Canadian nation itself.
The question of whether a Student Conference is necessary or
advisable nt suih a time as the present is probably debatable. But
this vrvy problem should be argued here on the campus before the
University of B.C. decides to be represented al the conference.
In whatever light a student may view the proposed meeting
of the Canadian Student Assembly, he or she should take the
trouble to attend tho organization meeting on Thursday. It will
only he tlie active interest of the students here which will ensure
the ultimate success or failure of the conference.
We, Nero, stick our grisly and
oare-worn map Into this speolal
Arts-Aggie edition to provoke the
anger and What-not of one Osborne

Look at his reoord: President of the

Durkin must resign. He has too
many flat-irons on ye olde stove. H4

Durkin must resign. If he were
president of anything else, he would
suffocate. After all, Anthony Eden
Durkin Is doing about as well with
all his posts as Drlfty Braldwood
does making a speech under water
with a mouthful of marbles. Durkin
must resign.
Especially should he resign from
the presidency of the Chair by the
Window in the Pub Office Club, and
let It develop along the lines Intended by Its co-founders, Chang Suey
and  Osoar  Scrlbblewell.
In the near future, Nero will pan
other olubs, and show how Durkin
Interlocks, and why.
Nero also thinks that Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Benito Mussolini should resign, beoause they
haven't enough time to devpte to the
Civilisation Club. The only • people
allowed to do more than five thousand thlnga at a time are Frank
Wiggs and Anthony  Eden.

Music li Food
For The Soul
"Oreat music for the glory and
Greatness of humanity," that Is the
Ideology of the Hart House Quartet,
which appears here in one of its
ravlshlngly beautiful concerts on
November 18th at the University
Auditorium under the auspices of
.he Department of University Extension.
In a recent interview with one of
the leading Boston papers, they
pointed out that everyone Ukea to
live In a home surrounded with beautiful pictures, furniture and books.
Everyone admires a gorgeous sunset,
a retreat In the country, a bit of
exquisite porcelain, a thrilling statue,
good food, good clothes,—ln faot
everything which makes towards
good living.
Music ls so perfect and ao GOOD,
that It must perforce be a good factor In the Uvea of people, If only they
will avail themselves of the opportunities to listen to lt. No special
knowledge la needed. Just ait baok
nnd let the mixture of harmonies
reach your ear until it penetrates to
ths soul. This is bound to happen, for
nobody has ever penned more heart-
touching emotions than did the great
masters of music.
Life ls full of perplexities and
problems; through Muslo one can
find the easiest avenue of escape. One
rushes off to the country to forget
everyday cares, but music-lovers can
■.avape this even ln their own homes
as they listen to gramophone records
or the good radio programs.
In London and New York, there
aie people who listen to concerts
: rom the cheapest seats, and miss a
meal to do so. Their stomachs may be
empty, but their eyes are bright with
happiness and their soul full of joy.
Students Do It
The Hard Way
Little known to Intra-mural students at the University of British
Columbia is the extent of their campus; little known to them Is the small
army of men and women who constitute the "Invisible" student body
of the University.
Each evening, from the dreary flats
of the Peaoe River to Port Albera'o's
stormy harbour, from the rain-swept
streets df Prince Rupert .to Nelson's
sunny hills, Teachers, loggers, grocer's
clerks sit down to the same lecture
material that Varsity students have
assimilated during the day.
The Registrar's Office of the University reports that a total of one
hundred twenty-eight have registered
this year for directed reading courses,
one hundred and two of these taking
History 13 and twenty-alx taking
Economics 4. Last year the number
was even higher with one hundred
fifty-seven students registered in
English 3 and Philosophy 7 courses.
"You, a Uon tamer—a little obap
like you!"
"My aize la the secret of my success. -The lions are waiting for me
to grow a little  bigger."
—Brans wlckan
And who are these "Invisible" students who knook off two or three
units from the fateful sixty during
the long winter evening? By far the
largest number of them are teachers
who are working by the long weary
process of directed reading courses
and Summer Sessions toward that
elusive B.A. A few are graduates who
see an opportunity to take a oourse
they have missed or one whloh they
need for work of a higher degree.
A few are undergraduates who find
timetable clashes which make It impossible for them to take the desired
course ln any other way.
Directed reading courses are a
tough racket. Bulletins are mailed to
students about once a month on the
average — bulletins outlining the
oourse, suggesting methods of study,
prescribing texts, drawing attention
to Important sections. After that lt ls
up to the student. Examinations are
usually set at Christmas and in April
with the additional pleasure of writing a Anal examination in July.

Essays I . . . My head aehes and a
drowsy numbness pains, absolutely.
Even my conscience bothers me. Last
night in those hopeless hours before
the dawn, I woke up and realised
that in Ave days I had to have an
essay In.
immediately, to soothe my troubled
spirit, I dashed off to discuss the
problem with my friends. They all
reassured me that suoh weighty matters as the Influence of the salon on
Frenoh literature was a mere bagatelle ln their lives.
One of the most popular methods
of evading the issue, they advised,
was to quote at length out of reference books. Another way, though not
very acceptable in more abstract subjects, was to fill up all the spaces
where the mind refused to funotion
with pictures supposedly illustrating
the point you were striving to put
One very courageous youth assured
me that he always paid the professor
in question a personal, visit and with
the aid of a worried and penitent
expression, tried to convince his
rather unsympathetic audienoe that
his praiseworthy aotlvities ln arousing enthusiasm for the lnter-frater-
nity smoker kept him from starting
his essay £11 so late that all the
books on the subjeot were out.
Being a timid and incredulous soul
by nature, I abandoned the last suggestion and rushed over to the library and feverishly got out all the
remaining books on the chosen topic
( Every hour found me ln a greater
state of perturbation. Finally, as I
skipped wUdly and despairingly from
tome to tome, I decided that I must
be going mad. So, I reasoned to myself, to preserve what Uttle sanity
still remains, I had better give up
the effort. Throwing my higher principles to the wind, I bought an essay
of a former student.
But once again I discovered that
crime doea not pay and that virtue ls
its own reward.
Today I went napplly into the Pub
for the first time slnoe my forced but
fruitless retirement to the library
only to find that I had been assigned
a feature on the various ways aitf*
means of writing essays.
Despair again entered my soul.
Was it not the irony of fate?—How
was I to know? I had never written

James O. Harmer,
Men's Athletlo Representative,
Student Council Offloe.
Dear Sir:
Your doubtful and ludiorous challenge of November 8 was received
today—with muoh amusement.
The Editor and staff of the Ubyssey are pleased to accept the gauntlet
ao rashly thrown down by your effete
body of fervent OouneUlors. Not only
do we aooept the over-eonfldent
boast, but alao we agree to avenge
the thinly veiled Insults whloh comprise the main body of your letter.
It might be pointed out here that
no member of any Publications Board
Basketball team has ever resorted to
any practices of doubtful char ao ter,'
arid never wUl. The teams of the
Students' Council, however, have
never been known to play any game
with honour and gentiUty. So muat
lt be: Right la Might. .'. VGodtf'wfll'
inevitably prevail.
The time designated Is satisfactory.
May I point out that the Ubyssey
will be using their "B" Team. The
"A" ls, I feel, too far above the olaas
of the Counoil team to provide fair
Trusting that the Student's Council team wlU not be greatly dlsUlus-
loned by the certain decision of the
game, which cannot but be a 'walkover' for the Publications Board, I
Yours sympathetically,
"The Ubyssey."
At the flrst of a series of musioal
programs sponsored by the art and
literary section of the Sooial Problems Club, Dr. O. O. Sedgwick, Introduced by Mervyn Davis, president
of the Club, spoke to a gathering of
some two hundred mualo-lovera
Monday noon on the subject of
Sohubert's compositions.
Dr. Sedgwlok defined Schubert as
the creator of the "lied," a duet between piano and voice.* Every great
musician Including Sibelius has written "lieder," he oontlnued, but those
written by Schubert surpass all others.
Schubert never fails to accompany
a change ln word meaning -with a
change ln musio. However, Dr. Sedgwick pointed out that this la only
poaaible where the worda are In the
original. If translation ls attempted, a note of discord is bound to follow and musioal notes will not be
apt to fall on the right word.

Tragedy struck the oampus. Swiftly, silently, stark grim tragedy struck.
Bxaotly at 2.23 ln the eold stormy
houra of early Wednesday morning
tragedy ln the form of the shrill
ringing of a telephone raised O.
(D-D) Durkin, left him eold, trembling and tearful, slok and sorrowing.
It waS Simp Slattery of the University Night Patrol, blubbering over
the wire. "Gone, Mr. Durkin. Skipped
Scrammed, stolen, snatched, flew the
ooop, but gone—gonlest of gone."
"What In heaven's name are you
blabbering about?" asked an irritated
O. (Do-Do) Durkin. "You don't mean
to say——" he gasped With sudden
intuition of the terrible thing that
had happened.
"Yes," cried Simp. "OROOOLIO
OROOOLIO gone. It eould not be.
ORGOGLIO, rooster mascot of the
Arts-Aggie gone and the sooial function of the year but a week away. It
was too muoh for Durkin. For a moment he remained paralysed. Then
the seriousness of the situation struck
O.UF. wires bussed. Find Orgoglio.
From Halifax to Vanoouver sleepy
operators tapped out "F-I-N-D
What to top the gleaming Trtalon?
What to croon the signature of Ole
Olson's danoe groups? What to outdo Varaity Time and lay an egg in
the middle of the Commodore as part
of the floor show?
Olty prowler oars oombed Bast End
lanes. Guards stopped and searched
with sober effectiveness trafflo on
First Narrows Bridge. Uniformed
men in small patrols orossed and re-
crossed the University Area.
To no avail.
Pale and haggard O. (Dol-Do'w)
Durkin crept Wednesday morning
Into the Pub Offloe. How eould he
faoe them? He stuttered, stammered,
wiped hia brow with a Totem proof-
page. A tremendous effort. There It
was out—and Wednesday became the
Blaok Day of the 30-40 session.
"Logical deduction leads me to
suspect foul play," mused Durkin.
Orgoglio spent a routine day Tuesday—no undue excitement, no loss of
appetite. He couldn't have done away
with himself."
"The trouble with you ls that you
don't uae logical deduction," countered Baokman. "You should use the
scientific approach "
"That's it. You've hit lt," howled
O. (Doll-Down) Durkin, leaping to
his feet. "Why didn't I think of It?
Scientific, sclenoe, sciencemen. It's
logical. It's obvious. Oome on, men.
To the Applied Sclenoe Building.
Who but a Sclencemen would do
away with  the Arts-Aggie mascot?"
Began then a frantic search ot the
Soience hovel. Grlm-faoed Artsmen
supported by sober Aggies explored
with minute oare ita hidden recesses.
Suddenly, ln an upstairs lab, fishing through garbage trays and pickling orocks, O. (Dolla-Down) Durkin
emitted a maniacal yell. Triumphantly he flourished above hla head what
at onoe dismayed and angered Arts-
men and Aggies to the point of madness—a clean, pickled lower shank qf
a rooster's leg.
Somewhere in the background
sounded a subdued snicker. Faintly
from the rafters there echoed the
hideous chant, "We are, we are, we
are    the    engineers ".    Cowering
Artsmen and Aggies moved as one
man closer to the humble fragment
that Durkin held in his hand, moved
as If this mere relic ot their faculty
offered some haven of refuge from
the hideous menace they could feel.
"Orgoglio. Orgoglio," wept Durkin—
softly, while pearly tears rolled down
his manly cheeks.
Mute Artsmen shuffled in embarrassment: stern Aggies blew their
noses noisily on red bandannas and
flicked Invisible specks from their
overhauls. Clearly the situation called for a leader.
Suddenly Backman sidled forward.
"Have you .proof?" he whispered.
"Can you write Q.E.D. to your hypothesis—and R.I.P. for Orgoglio? No.
You oan only reason wildly. There
are hundreds of feathsrless femurs
in this building. Was Orgoglio a
many-legged monster? Was he? Answer quickly."
"Oh, bless me, no," wailed Durkin
In a fresh outburst. "Oh, bless me, no.
He waa the sweetest, the ".
Backman subsided Into deep thought
ignoring the snivelling crowd. "PI,"
he muttered, "Pi, and repeated Integration—but most Important—Pi."
At the sound of "Pi" Artsmen and
Agglea shrieked anew as the possible
fate of Orgoglio struck them. As un-
' technically as he wss able Baokman
ealmed them, explaining quietly.
"I beUeve I oan do lt," he said.
"Yea, I believe I oan reaurreot him
from thia fragment. But I must have
no Interruptions," be roared. "Stand
baok and watoh. Soienoemen do
harder Jobs than this before breakfast."
' Then began what to Artsmen seem-
ied a magie rite. They gaped Incredulously at flrst, then slunk baok gradually in awe and terror. Feverishly
Baokman worked, bending over the
fragment on the table in front of
him. Integration —Integration —then
more Integration—endlessly it seemed
—and alwaya that PI coming ln at
Just, the right moment, neatly, deftly,
Averting disaster by a hairs-breadth.
Integrate. Pi. Integrate. Qulok with
the PI.
, And slowly there grew beneath his
4kllful penoll a shapeless mass, then
> vague form, that quivered and
Writhed. Slowly the shape became
familiar,  rose,   fell  and  rose  again,
Ed as Backman gave his aU In a
al Reroulean Integration whloh left
n lying eold and pale, the Thing
moved majestloally upward from the
table In a glorious aro, perched
proudly on the delirious Durkin
wrist and uttered with crystal clear-

(September 3, Sunday morning.)—
On the morning of September 3, we
saw the 8 o'clock Irish Mall off from
Euaton. In the station, a welter of
outgoing Irish baggage, handtrucka,
yelling porters; outside a warm hasy
morning, aoft and tranquil.
Down Southampton Row and Kings-
way, nearly empty at this hour on
Sunday; but outside the Royal Air
Force recruiting offices near Aldwych
a hundred or more, men and boys,
have already Uned before the doors
in a noisy oolumn.
Across the Strand and Adelphi to
the Gardens on the Thames Embankment. Here, the trees are green ln
the morning sunshine, and the gardens glow with the sheen of heavy
rain during the night. No plaoe could
be warmer, more restful, at thia moment; the River shines; that massive,
Babylonish terrace of great buildings
from Somerset House along Fleet St.
to St. Paul's, stands freshly against
a clear sky. On the garden's wooden
benches, still wet, are stretched a
half dozen of London's poor, grey and
homeless, their dress a tangle of old
serge and bits of twine, their property a shapeless canvas bag. These
are still asleep, soaking up sun.
Big Ben, a quarter-mile off to the
right, strikes the half-hour, solemnly,
heavily. Half past ten; thirty minutes
of uneasy peace left to Great Britain,
on a warm Sunday morning.
At eleven o'clock, she Is at war.
Oht to be an Artsman,
And wear some box with shoes;
Oh!  to be a gentleman,
And never touoh the boose.
Oh!  to have a host of friends,
To shoo away my blues.
But me?   Ha!   I'm a solenoeman,
A   thing   at  which   to  sneer.
Why I'm never civilized.
It's never been made clear.

The UB.C. squad was In mid-season form as Its cone-defensive machine held baok the Westminster attack and the offensive screening plays

easy counters.

By the half they had bunt this to

First Quarter Spree Nets
Seventeen Points And
Eighth Straight Win
Chalking up an eighth straight victory, Varsity Thunderbirds
dynamited their way to the Big Four Championship and the Sea-
forth Cup last Saturday when they smothered a reputably powerful Knights of Columbus squad 26-6 at the Stadium, before a stand
packed with rain-soaked fans.
Feature of tho Varsity attack, was a flrgt quarter drive that
netted the Collegians seventeen points, as Teagle, Harmer, and
Fournler plunged over the line for touchdowns in that order, with
Teagle booting two perfeot drop-kicks to pick up an additional
two points.
Never   more   Sure   of   themselves,"
the Collegians out-powered the Kay
cees throughout, the line smashing
Open great gaping holes for the
baokfleld. Chief strength here, as of
old, were veterans Freddie Smith,
Brian Martin, and Henry Stradlottl.
Smith and Martin effectively blasted
the Irish line to shreds at their
guard positions, While "Strad" broke
through twice to blook LaBelle's
An important faotor in the Student viotory waa tho kioking of Captain Johnny Pearson. Pearson was
right In the groove Saturday, boosting high spirals that gave his snds
lots of ohanoe to get under the receiver, and twioe resulted In points.
The Kayoees' kicking waa weak and
In the third quarter Ranjl Mattu
crashed tbe scoring column when
he rouged a Kaycee safety after a
long Pearson punt had added another point  rolling  to  the  deadline.
First soore of the game came as a
result of Fournlor's smashing 48-
yard line, and then dropping baok
to klok the extra point.
A   few   minutes   later    Stradlottl
blocked a Kayoee kick to give Varsity possession  on the  Knight's  34-
yard line. A pass Finlay to Tuoker,
was   good   for   sixteen   yards,   and
plunges by Fournler and Finlay carried the ball to within, four yards of
the line. Burly Jim Harmer buoked
It over middle  from  there  for the
second major soore, as Teagle made
it 1S-0 with his second eonvert.
With but three mlnutea remaining to quarter time, another concerted drive by the Collegians netted  them  five   additional  points,
Fournler going slxtoen-yarda over
left taokle.
The final major soore of the game
was a freak break for the Blue and
Oold. On tbelr own twenty-nine yard
line,   the   Kayoees   kioked   only   to
have   it   blocked   by   Stradlottl.   The
ball   bounded   baok   to   the   fourteen
where Tucker, Varsity end, made a
dive for it.
He missed lt, but pushed It farther
back towards goal, and Johnny
Pearson, up on the play, dribbled
the ball over the line where he fell
on it, leaving a trail of disgusted
Irishmen  in  his  wake.
The Knights got all of their six
points In that big flrst quarter. Bowman rouged Finlay on a kick-off for
one point, and Legallals, oatching
two passes, fell across the line for
the only Irish major.

Vancouver Reps
Too Strong
For Careymen
Playing in the mud-bestrewn
stretches of the onoe-grassy Brockton
Oval last Saturday, the Varaity "A"
Rugger squad went down to defeat
before a powerful Vancouver Rep aggregation in the first MoKeohnle
clash of the current season.
Despite the thickness of the goo,
both teams played a great brand of
ball, although by the time the seoond
half rolled around, play was beginning to get sloppy. The same old
trouble haunted the Careymen In this
tilt, i.e., vis., to wit, etc., the sorum
Juat couldn't get the baU out.
Thla one faot alone made the whole
dliterence  between   defeat  and  viotory, since the Rep had undoubtedly
one   ot   the   strongest   three-quarter
lines  ever seen around  these  parts,
and once they got the ball they took
plenty of stopping.
■ Varaity   accounted for   the first
soore of the match early In the flrst
half, when   Sandy   Lang   made a
brilliant   dash   right   through tbe
middle of the Vanoouver lads, drew
fuUbaek   Winter   beautifully,   and
slipped tbe leather outside to Lyman   Day-Smith who   raced  fifty
yards further for the score. ChePr
man oame through with the extra
pointa on a very tough eonvert to
make the count 8-0 for tbe Varaity
From here on the Vanoouver three
line played havoc with the Varsity
defence scoring no less than Ave
times on beautifully executed runs.
Since none of these tallies were
converted, however, the score read
16-6 when the final whistle blew. The
Campusmen showed the old fight In
the last ten minutes of play, pushing
the Vancouver lads deep in their own
territory, and keeping the play In
that section till the end of the game.
Student Puck-chasers will take to
the ice for the first time this year tomorrow night at 10, and manager
Jack Stevenson will get his flrst look
at the squad that seems so strong
'on paper'.
Harry Jones has been kind enough
to provide the Ice gratis to the students to give them a chance to prove
that they really have a team this
year, and the Forum Maestro ls willing to give Varsity a 'Break' and allow them to get into the Senior Amateur League provided they are strong
mougti, and provided George Irvine
can be successfully muffled.

Flashing more offensive power
than before tbls aeaaon, the Varsity
soooermen came through with a fine
display Saturday against City Police
at Powell St., holding the burly coppers to a 1-1 tie.
Since the Men of The Constabulary are regarded as one of the
strongest teams In the league, the
collegians have every reason to bs
pleased with themselves. And for the
flrst time this season, although only
one goal was soored, the Blue and
Oold forwards were constantly worrying the Police defence.
For the fourth time In Varsity
gamea thla aeaaon, there waa no
aoore at the half.
However, Leong was more than
onoe called upon and made several
Ane clearances. At the other end,
Bradbury, guarding tbe police citadel, was not unduly pressed by the
Varsity forwards.
