The Invasion Goes Up In Smoke
Considerable divergence of opinion among students on the
cancellation of the Victoria Invasion by Students' Council is
evidenced in a number o! interviews granted to the Ubyssey

PWl Barratt, prominent Rugby star,
says "the conduct of members of the
Alma Mater Society at Victoria is
not mbre detrimental to the Society
than is their conduct here." He went
on to state that Council is indulging
In "too much cheeseparing." H.
stressed the traditional outlook, stating that it was a good custom to keep
up. When questioned about Council's
statement that competition in Victoria
is not sufficient to warrant sending
first string teams over, he pointed out
that it was not Victoria College teams
that played tho major teams anyway,
and that competition for the interne-
dlate and Junior teams was strong
enough to cause defeat of Varsity
teams in many Instances.
Larry Jack, Canadian Rugby player,
was most condemnatory, saying that
Council's reasons wore entirely inade-
quate, and that "they never had been
adequate except In the minds of
puerile Councillors." Ho pointed out
that there was no undue misbehavior

Hears Szigeti
Give Recital
Many students were present at the
Vancouver Theatre last Wednesday
night when the famous Hungarian
violinist, Szigeti played to a packed
house.   .
Opening his program with Arch*
angelo CorrelU's "La Folia," ssigeti
exhibited a vitality of tone and timbre peculiarly hi. own: not that tiring intensity of bow-pressure and
vibrato one gets so accustomed to
hearing, but the firm lucidity of a
man who hag developed himself as a
satisfactory medium for the violin.
A wonderful performance was
Bach's "Sonata in 0 Mutor" (unao
companled). Then came Moiart's
"Concerto in 0," oedema by Joachim.
After Ihe mtermisslon three program number, were played: "Are-

Festivities Have Sad End
For Coed On Hallowe'en
"Hi ho," mused Miss Betty Gourre
of Arts 33 as she tripped daintily
down Barclay Street at 1 a.m. Sunday
morning—"Hi hot Really quite boring,
these Hallowe'en festivities. Wish I
could find something real exciting-
something that would stir me up!"
So saying, she stepped out Into the
greatly-bombed area of Barclay and
Broughton Streets. Exactly two seconds later she found herself prone
and quite prostrate in the gutter of
the aforementioned streets. No, gentle
reader, she had not been Imbibing
too freely—nor had she slipped on a
rotten egg—nor had her companion
placed a basket bomb in the Gourre
pocket.   She had been struck. And
struck forcibly.
Could It have been an Austin? No
—a whole finger waa broken! That
eliminated the Austin. Light was shed
on the mystery when an apologetic
truck driver bravely stepped forth
and confessed all, to the horror and
amazement of three kids, a street car
conductor who was busy replacing a
trolley and two young men who were
in no condition to appreciate the confession anyway. After due deliberation, expenses were paid and the discussion ended.
Thus two Varsity students have bit
the dust in as many weeks. Both were
of the weaker sex. Miss Gourre was
compensated with a new pair of
stockings, a new dress, a slightly used
finger, and this yarn, which wouldn't
even compensate a person with a
By Act of Parliament of Canada, Armistice Day, November

intend to witness the Ballet thi.
year to read up on the story of Theseus and the Minotaur if they intend

An outline of the plot as given by
St. John Madeley follows: King Minos

Minotaur which had been terrorising them for some time. Theseus, a
prince of Athens, decides to rid his
native city of tills terrible domination, so he Joins th. group of sacrifices. Upon thai* arrival at Crate,
Ariadne, daughter of Minos, falls in
love with Theseus gnd releases him
from the sacrifices, and he invades the
labyrinth where the foul beast lives.
He manages to kill the dragon and
thus frees Crete from its domination,
wins the gratitude of King Minos, and
the undying devotion of Ariadne.

Sydney Aqua and Lyle Stewart,
who are trying out for the position
of assistant yell leader, were given
practice in cheer leading.
"The campaign for hew member, is
progressing favourably," said Gordon
Hilker, secretary, "but there is still
room for more." He stated that eight
committees had been selected for
various tasks such as announcing
meetings, and staging contests. Further details of this nature will be announced later. Malcolm Pretty accompanied the songs.
Wing Development Traced
In Insects and Animals
"Wings," was the topic discussed
by Professor E. J. Spencer at a
meeting of the Biological Discussion
Club held at the home of Mrs. C.
McLean Fraser, Monday evening,
October 19.
Professor Spencer traced the history of flight amongst animals from
the pre-paleozoic epoch to the present day. Wings are first known to
have existed on Insects on which
they took the form of flat lateral
extensions of the body. These insects were called "Trilobltes" and it
is thought that they gave rise to
some of the modern aquatic insects.
After millions of years there appeared perfect insects possessed of
the power of flight. The wings of
these types probably originated from
external gills or from laternal extensions of the earliest form. Certain it is that the wings developed
both externally and internally so
that now there are blood vessels and
trachea ln the wings.
Some Animals Flew
The development of flight In vertebrates followed the same advance
In Insects. From a study of fossils
it is known that there once were
flying animals. The Mesosoir dragon was small bodied but it had a
pair of wings, formed of naked skin,
which measured 25 feet from tip to
tip. Some reptiles also developed
wings but today there is only one
such form, the Draco, which glides
on costal membranes.
Near relatives of the reptiles, the
birds, have evolved the most suc-
cesful form of wings, the use of
feathers being the important feature.
The Human Urge to Fly
Winged mammals are few in number and the few are chiefly nocturnal.
Flying squirrels glide downward by
means of a membrane between limbs
and a flat tail. Bats have perfect
wings utilizing a membrane which
may or may not enclose the tall.
The only wings which man has so
far developed are mechanical, although he has often pictured himself
as possessing a means of flight. The
mention of wings occurs ln Biblical
history time and again, human beings equipped with winas. fearsome
creatures of prophecy or destruction
and even winged horses.
In concluding his paper Professor
Spencer suggested that: "Human beings in the past and legions now
living are convinced that angels exist and many are quite sure that
they themselves will eventually
grow, or at least become equipped
with these theoretically impossible

AY, NOVEMBER 3, 1931
"The next disarmament conference must
succeed. If it fails—that is, if it does not ensure an honest and universal reduction in the
actual killing and wounding power of arms—
we shall see the downfall of our institutions
and the .end of Western civilizaton. Let me
repeat that disarmament must be honest, must
be mutual and must be universal. I appeal
to tha veterans of the Great War, to the youth
of the world, to see to it that your governments
determine on disarmament now, for there will
be no other chance."
These are tho solemn words of Sir Arthur
W> Currie, commander of the Canadian troops
in tha Great War, principal of McGill Univer-
Sir William Robertson, chief of tha Brl-
general staff In tha war and the only British private to become a field marshall,
expresses similar views on tha need for measures of disarmament and tha costly futility
of war. Wa could quote dotens of prominent
men of all nations to tho same effect.
That the Itudents of Canada art fully
alive to tha seriousness of tha situation is evidenced by tht petition they art going to present to Prima Minister Bennett, asking that
Canada bo represented by distinguished man
who are neither politicians nor professional
military exports, and that this country press
for significant reduction of armaments. It is
inspiring to witness the colleges and universities bf tha nation uniting in this movement.
From coast to coast students are rallying to
support tha petition, and tha University of
British Columbia will do its part. Council has
officially approved the plan and hundreds have
, a>a_dv signed the forms that are being made
available. In some universities the support
has boon almost one hundred per cent., it is
reported, and we should take second place to
none, but present an unanimous front.
At the conclusion of last term the urgent
need for money to bring the Stadium Fund
up to the required total led to the evolution of
a plan to collect unused caution money. While
this scheme did not meet with the unqualified
approval of all those concerned the campaign
committee finally convinced the student body
that it was a feasible method by which much
of the essential balance could be realized*. At
an Alma Mater meeting, at which considerably
more than the necessary quorum were present,
a resolution assigning the caution money to
the Stadium Fund was passed by an ample
During the recent summer it was found that
In order to obtain the caution money it would
be necessary for students to tender individual
signatures reiterating their promise of last
term. Accordingly Students' Council arranged
for the distribution of forms, which, when
signed, would fulfill the necessary technicality.
What has been the result? To date only a
very small proportion of the money has been
signed over. Have some of the students lost
touch with affairs to such an extent that they
have not heard of this matter and so have failed
to sign? Are some of them so hard pressed
for time that they have been unable to slip
into the Bursar's office and. sign their names?
Can there be any of them so deplorably indifferent to the welfare of their own University
that they 'haven't bothered' to fulfill their
promise? Undoubtedly these causes account
for some of the money which has not been received. Regrettable as this may seem it pales
into insignificance when a further reason is revealed. A considerable number of students
have actually collected the money which had
been previously pledged to the Stadium Fund.
It would be a conservative estimate to say
that at the conclusion of last session ninety-
five percent, of the students then registered
believed that their caution money had been
legally transferred to the Stadium Fund. If
that were not the case why did they not collect it at the usual time last spring? A student who has withdrawn his 1930-31 caution
money, therefore, has taken advantage of a
legal technicality to obtain possession of money
which he believed to be the property of others.
Ethically this is theft for the money had not
been voluntarily released by the party to
whom it had been assigned.
In some stratas of society people who attempt to benefit themselves at the expense of
their own organization are branded as 'scabs'
and 'blacklegs.' At this institution of higher
education many of them boast of the 'smart
trick' which they have been able to effect- A
group of these student parasites would surely
be well qualified to lecture to the Freshman
class on "Advanced trends in University
Another Indication of the decline of collegiate-Ism
was the subject of an editorial in th. Oregon Daily
Emerald a year ago. The editorial refer, to the lessening vocal support for teams at Ore-

more relegated to the high schools,

loud-mouthed variety."

Returning to the discussion of conservative tendencies in the universities of this continent, I beg to report
certain hopeful signs in Canada. From some centres

Hopeful debating arise, but I note activity at Mani-
Signs toba and McGill. At the former, 'Resolved
that Capitalism has failed' waa the subject
of a recent debate, and at the latter Disarmament was
But the best indication of vitality is th. petition that
Canadian students are sending to the Prime Minister
about Canada's representatives at the February Disarmament Conference. The petition requests that our Influ-
enc. be exerted on behalf of significant reduction; it
asks that our delegates be neither professional military
men nor active politicians.
The Usually conservative McGill Dally Introduces its
article on the petition with a atreamer. In a full column
editorial on the matter, the Queen'. Journal declares
that "Throughout Canada, a student movement of tremendous proportions is under way. World Peace Is the
ultimate objective of the students at Canadian colleges
and universities from coast to coast" The present objective, It goes on to say, is to petition the Prime Minister
that Canada ho represented at the Disarmament Confer
ence not by active politicians

ut by "two who have

would both give weight to Canadian representations and

Discussion of race questions has been going on ln
The Manitoban and The Varsity. At Toronto the Jews
in the limelight Considering overcrowding and
"the prejudice that at present exists/' The
Varsity suggests a Jewish College to give
Jews freedom and scope, and an added
prestige in recognition of Jewish literature,
culture and religion that might become acceptance. "In
the light, however, of the recent French Invective (in a
Montreal anti-semetic paper, advocating barring ot Jews
from universities) and also of certain bigoted actions ln
McGill University, our motive would be suspect. We
should be accused of attempting to lure the Jewish students into one body, in order to take the next step of
evicting them with much greater facility."
I don't know what the Jewish point of view on this
is, but it seems to me that the formation of separate
Jewish colleges would be a mistake. Let the Jews preserve whatever of their religion and culture they value,
but be primarily Canadian citizens and not a community
within the community.
Whatever prejudice exists against Jews at Toronto
and McGill redounds to the discredit of those Institutions. The only nrejudlce against Jews at the University of British Columbia that I know of is the bar In
some 'fraternities' against those of other than Nordic
stock. Otherwise, they take part ln all student activities
as fellow students, which is as It should be.
I conclude with the words of The Manitoban'a editorial on the Negro problem: "And university students,
as a class, should be first to acknowledge that man
must be evaluated not on his racial connection but on
the quality of his personality."
A despatch from Vienna in the daily press
tells us that "Dr. Guido Holzknecht, chief of
the X-ray Institute in Vienna, and one of the
world's leading authorities in this field, died
here Friday, a martyr to science." Dr. Holzknecht was experimenting with an X-ray cure
for cancer. He lost one arm after three operations but refused to give up work which
seemed on the point of success. He died after
amputation of his second arm.
The terrible effects of the X-ray on experimenters were brought to the attention of
the world last year when Dr. Christian Deet-
jen of Baltimore suffered the loss of an arm
after some previous operations. Dr. Frederick
H. Baetjer of John Hopkins Medical School,
it was announced, has been under the knife
seventy-five times- Many others have been
killed or disabled in X-ray work, for they
considered progress in this field more important than their own lives.
Other fields of medical and scientific research have their martyrs too, although the
public hears but little of them. Let a man
make a name for himself as the efficient butcher in the savagery of insane war, and he
will be presented to generations of school
children with a halo of glory round his head.
But men like Dr. Guido Holzknecht, who met
a horrible death in his effort to win the dramatic battle of science against the scourge of cancer—let such men fall at the post of duty, and,
if the world hears of them at all in brief newspaper reports, they are soon forgotten by all
except their co-workers.
Let us hold in honor men who strive to
benefit humanity; let us remember them with
reverence and gratitude.

article referred to. "What of the
Welfare Drive?" This was the problem—was it to fall, and why? Some
one had said—"They have found out
that the money simply isn't around
this year." This did not seem an
adequate explanation, since other
cities have succeeded where Vancouver has failed.
Ulysses agreed that individuals and
groups hadn't realized the obligation
that rests upon them. The obvious
advantages of the system of Welfare
Federation were not in question, but
rather the duty of all classes of citizens In respect to the Drive. Agamemnon, who had entered during the
preliminary skirmish, suggested rather hesitatingly that University students might be considered a class of
citizens. We could understand his
hesitation- Ihe thought was novel,
and has not often been advanced on
Campus. Citizens? "Just imagine
the absurdity of it." "My dear Ag-
amemnon, you will next be suggesting that we rest under the obligation
of citizenship." Ulysses, who had
been pondering, said "Perhaps we
do," and all three of us found ourselves faced with the possibility of
the students of U.B.C. being considered as citizens, and as such under
the obligations of a group toward
the Welfare Federation Drive.

Coed Opinion Divided
"For this year, at any rate,-it Is too
expensive—students can't afford it,"
said Esme Thompson. "It's a good
Idea," stated Nancy Carter, "and If
they don't like student behavior, get
more chaperones!" was her idea of
a remedy for th. alleged condition of
student rowdlness in the Capital city.
Several co-eds who preferred to remain anonymous had quite definite
opinions on the matter. "I've been
two years, and I don't think it's any
good—the boys are completely soused,
so the girls never have any fun," says
one, while another is of the opinion
that "It's loads of fun. but the public
doesn't like it, and the whole University opinion is against it, so it ought
to be stopped!"
Victoria students gave an interesting light to the question. Dolly Smith
stressed the fact that "If we don't
have an invasion, there's no point in
Victoria College being affiliated with

a good thing for the teams to meet—

family.  Nevertheless God's will seems
to be that we should strive to realize
such a state of society.
During the afternoon session the relationship between Chris! and modern
social systems was discussed. Although
Jesus did not object to the evils of
the theocratic system of his day, we
must not suppose that He would leave
our own society uncritlclzed. As a
matter of fact we have little of His
teaching. He gives us no actual code
of ethics—simply a number of precepts uttered from time to time which
we should strive to Interpret for ourselves. For this reason we are apt to
become complacent, not realizing that
in this day and age Jesus expects us
to carry forward to its logical conclusion the principle for which He
lived and died—namely that God's
will is the dominant force behind
the world.
In closing the discussion, Mr. Brooks
reminded members of the group that
as students they should ever uphold
the idea that Jesus is alive today.
"Nothing seems more important than
the revival of this thought, for If
Christ lives, there will be a new heaven and a new earth," concluded Mr.

Explanatory Note
During the progress of the publication of this serial, one of the instalments was lost. However, this
only serves to make the story more
mysterious. We, ourselves, forget
how the instalment read, so It's up
to you Dear Reader. Here'a tha
final Instalment.
Balked of our main capture, we
turned and confronted the printing
apparatus before us. At one side of
the machine stood a high stack of
plates, each one bearing the exact

side lay a scattered heap of lnoom-

Rants simultaneously. Then Emile

ruminated. "Probably he has honeycombed the whole campus with these

trying to pursue Kin."
"Yea," agreed Rants." "The fellow

With tills speech of Rants' the
story practically ends. The stairway
led to the Caf., where we had first
heard the noise of the printing-

heroes o fthe hour. A special Alma

the manner of rewarding the great
men, but as there was no quorum,
nothing was done. However, Emile
Cdchols was presented with the honorary degree of B.A.C. that Christmas, while Rants received a complimentary Handbook and a bottle of

What should I have done in the circumstances?
Yours truly,
O. Y.
The conditions are, to say tiie
least, a little bit bewildering. But If
you are the kind of man, like myself, who never give up (I once
spent three hours trying to thread a
needle), I think the best thing to
do is to go eight clubs. It is, of
course, very irregular to go eight
of anything; In fact I should imagine
it Is against the rules. However, I
am rather hazy on that point. The
advantage of bidding eight is that
everybody will be so flabbergasted
that they will pass. Then you throw
your cards on the table with a
pleasant smile and claim a misdeal
on the grounds that you have fourteen cards. Make sure to throw them
face up, so that if any Doubting
Thomas counts them, you can claim
a re-deal anyway, for having your
cards face up. This is a very good
method for getting out of any bridge
If the opponent, on the other hand,
goes eight spades, it is evident that
he is as determined as you are
(only, when you, are referring to
the Incident, call him stubborn) and
that the affair is going to last all
night. In this case, tell him it is
against the rules to go eight. If he
is one of those awkward cusses, and
points out that you yourself went
eight a minute ago, just tell him
pleasantly that he is a liar, or throw
a chair at him, If you can restrain
yourself, do so; next day insure him
heavily In your favor and push him
under a coal-truck. I wish I had
known of your prolem earlier. There

Entry scene:
The market was bustling and street
hawkers were selling their hawks.
Over the cobbled street carriages
dashed hither and hither, and dandles of the court of Loole strolled
by the store windows and talked
over the coming battle with Burgundy. Our hero rode to the palace
to make a date with the king to
down the odd glass of raspberry
juice since the king had once spoken to our hero's father saying, "Yon
man looks more than monkey than
man." This made the king a relation of our hero's father.     ,,

No one really knows how much fun there is to editing
a Muck-a-Muck page until he, or she, has tried it- Perhaps
the most amusing part of the process comes after the "Ubyssey" has been circulated. Just as a lark, some day, look at
the face of someone who is reading the Muck page. In that
face you will see every emotion portrayed except amusement.
Generally the expression Of the face is one of cynical disbelief. And then, of course, there are our educated friends,
who always laugh. And titan again there are our educated
friends who do not laugh.
But, speaking seriously, although such speech has no place
on this page, the average student rarely laughs aloud for joy
at the Muck page. Sometimes he, or she, chuckles, sometimes
giggles, but we have never known anyone to die of hysterics
over our beloved page, although tho Senior Editor for tha

Description^ th, "Pub Office"
When I first entered the Pub Of -

times before I could make opt anything to the heavy haze of pipe, cigarette, and cigar smoke, that filled
the place. Stumbling forward I
stumbled ever what, with a shiver
of horror, I thought was a body, but
on examination I found it to be
merely an overturned waste paper

Wiping the onion from our gase, we
set off in hot pursuit of tha wretch,

melted into the night.
From behind us came an uitermittent crackling of fire-crackers and
to we turned and stumbled In the

Curiosity overcoming caution, we
broke into a jog-trot and thumped
our way onward.
"Stop a moment," whispered Emile,
my companion, "There's some plot
afoot here. Look at that trail ot
sparks.  A fust, most likely."
Silently we retreated to a eafe distance and Watched the line of hi*- -

was onoe mere all around us.

hissed Emile, "the fuse was a fistic."
"O. K. Butch," I replied in true

pal once more.
We had scarcely gone three steps
when the night was rent by a terrific explosion. Emile turned a complete aotnorsalt and lit running, but

I heard tiie voice ef Emile gasp out,
"Awrlght eatt How did I know I fell

To tiie accompaniment of screeching and wailing tho feline fled from
the place of recent anguish, and at
that moment the front porch light
flashed on. Hastily scrambling behind a nearby telephone pole, I
heard, to my great delight, a thoroughly Indignant old lady give Emile
the most thorough tongue-lashing of

Varsity In Tie
With Meralomas
In Grid Battle
Playing on a sodden gridiron that
made smooth football impossible, Dr. J
Burke's Blue and Gold Canadian Rugby team from the University of B. C,
went through a good training workout against the Meralomas to earn a
8-8 tie in a scheduled Big Four game
at Athletic Park on Saturday afternoon.* This is Varsity's second to last
game, ita last being with Victoria on
the Island, next Saturday.
Varsity's Una played smoothly on
the wet field and time and again

recruit, did noble work in making
the openings for Dirom and Murdoch.
The students gamed their first point
in the latter part of the first quarter
on Murdoch's kick to the deadline
after an exchange of punts with Me-
teed of Meralomas. McLeod booted
a poor one and on a bad snap Varaity
smeared the kicker. Dirom then
plunged and Murdoch booted for tho
initial telly.
In the second quarter tha collegians
obtained possession deep in tha opposition's territory and after a first
down or so brought about by Dirom
and Murdoch, the latter tried a drop

Miller Cap Squads Drop Both Tilts. -Vanity Teami Show Improvement
Varsity suffered a set-back in the
Millar Cup series on Saturday, losing
to Ex-Magee 8-0, and to tha Rowing
Club 20-8. Smooth play waa almost
impossible in the thick mud that covered tha field and It was partly due
to this that the lighter U.B.C. teams
were unable to make any headway
against the heavy opposition.
In the game against Ex-Magee, tha
students lost two men before half
time and were forced to continue with
only thirteen players. Ed Senkler was
laid out with a broken ankle and his
loss will be keenly felt on tho forward
line. Courtenay Cleveland waa also
forced to leave the field with injuries
having suffered a sight concussion,
and his retirement greatly weakened
tha three-quarter line. Despite the
muddy field, the backfield handled
well, and during the first half the
Mages line was threatened on several

Playing in a driving rain, Varaity
third division English Ruggers out
splashed Ex-Brentwood to win 3-0
at Renfrew en Saturday.
The Freshmen were always ln
command of the play, against the
Victoria boys, but costly fumbles and
miss-kicks by the three-quarters
prevented a larger score. The U.B.C.
scrum played a tine game throughout, covering up the errors in the
backfield by dribbling the ball back.
The teams wero evenly matched ln
the first half, but after the Interval
the Frosh wero never outside the Ex-
Brentwood 25 yard line. Twice the
Brentwood line was crossed when
tha scrum dribbled through but each
time it was touched back for a "two-
bit" kick. The Freshmen finally
scored when McKeown went over
after a five-yard scrum, a few minutes before the whistle. Teal, at fullback and Thomson in tiie scrum
turned in nice games for Varsity,
while White was outstanding tor Ex-
Varsity and Y. M. C. A. will' clash
In a track meat at 8 o'clock tonight In
tha Horstshow Building at Hastings
Park, whan many brilliant athletes
will attempt to shatter existing records.
After the meet, which will last until about ten o'clock, arrangements
have been made for a dance until midnight As for the track meet Itself,
many thrilling events'are slated. The
half mile will bring together, Herd,
one oi the fastest half milars 'of the
city, and Forsythe of Varsity. Forsythe made a name for himself last
spring by winning this event against
tha College ef Puget Bound and should
make things hot for Herd. The Varsity star will also compete in the high
jump i event. The mile event will
against McComber of the "Y." Mc
Comber this year has cleared 6 feat
and should make a place on tha Olympic team next summer.
In tho daahes Varaity will have
Bobby Gaul and BIB Stott, Both will
be entered In the 40 and 880 yard
events. Bobby last spring tied the
Varsity record in the 890 and Stott is
junior champion of Manitoba. These
are sure Varaity point getters.
In the quarter mile Varsity has
Osborne and Stewart, both of whom
raced in five events this year and
have shown good form. These boys
will also compete in the hop, step and
iump event. The mile event will
see Dunn and Allen of Varsity extend Calrd ot the "Y" to the limit.
The relays which proved so exciting last year should be just as good
or better this fall. In the two lap relay U. B. C. will have Osborne, Stewart, Clarke and Pi Campbell, while
Stott, Gaul, Ormsby, Max Stewart
and Clarke will represent the students In the shuttle.
Varsity will be weakened in the
weight events through the loss of Dirom who is out because of injuries,
but Haddon Agnew has proven a
capable substitute for the husky
science man.

Puck Chasers
Are Defeated
In Two Games
U. B. C. lost to Ex-South Vancouver 4-1, and Varsity was beaten 1-0
by Normal in Saturday's grass hookey games.
Both teams were hindered from
playing well by the condition of the
fields which were very slippery.
The Varsity game at Strathcona
was pretty much in the hands of the
students, but owing to the very poor
shooting no score was made.
A feature of this game was the
penalty bully between Isabel Mac-
arthur, centre forward for Varsity,
and the opposing goalie, which took
place right on the edge of the goal.
Owing to the quick work of tiie
goalie, no tally was made.
Margaret Beaumont at right-wing
for Varsity and Nance Carter on the
left-wing made long runs up the
field in attempts to score.
The goal keeper, Robina Mouat,
played well; she allowed the ball
past her only once.
During the greater part of the first
period ot the U. B. C. game at Memorial, the University players were
attacking the South Vancouver goal
and three scores would likely have
been made had It not been for poor
shooting. Two attempts at scoring
by South Vancouver brought results
and the count was 2-0 in their favor
at the end of this half.
A dribble by the wing player, a
pass to her inside, who in turn
passed the ball to the centre forward, Hope Palmer, made the score
2-1 in the first few minutes of play
in the second half.
For most of the remainder of the
In tho second frame, with a heavy
rain falling, tha game turned into a
punting duel, and Howie Cleveland,
who played hla usual steady game at
full-back excelled In this phase of tho
battle. Bert Barratt waa also in the
limelight with several brilliant runs,
but the greasy ball and wet field
prevented any scoring.
In the game against Rowing Club,
the edge was distinctly against Varsity. They had a scintillating three-
quarter line that accounted for four
tries, the other counts being made en
penalty kicks. Varsity, moreover, was
playing with a light seven man scrum
as against a heavier eight man peck
that the Rowers were .using. The
first half was even with the club
team leading by a W More at the interval Art Mercer was responsible
for the Blue and Oold tally, making
a wonderful 80-yard run through the
Rowing Club squad to cross the Red
and White squad's goal line. Bobby
Gaul converted.
Varsity fought bitterly through tha
second sterna but the students ware
no match for the Rowers, who scored
two more touches and a pair of tries.
Junior Gridders
Beaten 18-0 By
Meraloma Crew
Varsity Gridders lost another game
in the senior city loop when they
were defeated 18-0 by Meralomas at
McBride Park on Saturday.
Meralomas had most, of the play,
and only in the last three minutes
did Varsity appear dangerous. Early
in the game the club team scored a
touchdown which went unconverted,
and on the following play a Meraloma
man ran the ball back to U. B. C.'s
two yard line. From there the Orange
and Black pounded through for their
second touch which waa also unconverted.
Two minutes before half-time.
Meralomas marked up another, by
virtue of some hard line plunging
and fine end runs. Again they failed
to gather in the extra point, and the
Interval arrived with the score 15-0.
No further touchdowns were made
ln the second half of the game, Meralomas being content with three
dead-line kicks while Varsity was
unable to break the goose-egg. Van
Morrison, who had been out of the
game up till Saturday, decided to
play the last three minutes
and with him calling the signals, the Blue and Oold staged an
inspired rally. Matters had already
gone too far however, and Meralomas maintained- their eighteen point
margin till the final whistle.

game, but South Vancouver women
managed to score two more counts,
one through Muriel Harvie, a former

Cop Prairie
Grid Crown
Saskatoon, Nov. 8—A- fighting
Green and Gold horde from the University of Alberto that would not
admit defeat in the fact of tremendous odds practically eliminated Saskatchewan from the Western Canada
intercollegiate Rugby race when they
snatched a 8-4 victory from the Saskatoon collegians ln the middle-west
city on Saturday afternoon. It was
Lyle Jestley who starred at end last
season for British Columbia, that
turned the tide in the final minutes
of the battle and gave the Manitobans a two game lead on the prairie
title and made the trip to Vancouver
almost a certainty for the Winnipeg
team. With only ten minutes to go
tiie former Blue and Gold gridder
snared a fumbled punt, and raced
around the end for a touchdown and
a 1 point victory.
Thus the slender hope of the Saskatchewan team for retaining the
Hardy trophy this season faded into
obscurity. Manitoba has but two
more scheduled games, and even if
they dropped both of these would
still be tied for the top position. By
taking the tilt in Saskatoon next Saturday, the Brown and Gold grldden
can cinch the trip to the Pacific
Coast for the Western Canada Inter
collegiate finals,

For Students
Playing on a rain-soaked field, the
Varaity Men's grass hockey team
was handed a 3-1 set-back by Vancouver at Connaught Park, Saturday.
Early in the game both teams organized attacks but were checked
each way by sound defence play. After ten minutes Vancouver forced a
comer and the resulting shot slipped
past Selder to draw first blood.
Determined not to allow the Van-
couverltes to repeat the dose, Blue
and Oold forwards, supported by
their halves, rushed the ball into opposing territory, giving the fullbacks plenty to think about. The
students could not keep up the fast
pace however, and gradually lost

tenders also had vary little to do,
as neither aide put in many shots.
Varaity had the better of the play
ln the first half, but since ability
waa conspiclous by its absence, no
goals were chalked up In their favor. McKissock of Stock Exchange
opened the scoring after S minutes
of play with a low shot from the
edge of the goal area. Several determined eforts by Varsity to equalize ended in failure, and the score
at half-time was still 1-0 for Stock
Exchange. In the second canto Varsity faded more and more from the
picture as time went on. After 15
minutes Dale put his team two up
when he netted the ball after the
Varsity custodian had allowed It to
slip from his hands. The third and
last goal of tho match was scored
by Munn. It was a high bounding
shot which deflected from the student's net-minder and rolled slowly
across the goal line.
No player was particularly outstanding for either side although

The University of New Brunswick
claims a Dominion record for average student participation in athletics.
No less than 74 per cent of the en-
tlre'student body are at present engaging in supervised games of one
type or another according to statistics compiled by Coach Ted Coffey.
This is believed to be far in advance
of participation in other non-mllltary
universities of the Dominion and the
United States.
The Freshmen with a percentage
of 95 are either the most athletic or
the most enthusiastic of the students. The Juniors are next with 71
percent, the Seniors show a 65 per
cent turnout, and the Sophomores
trail with 62.5 percent. The percentage check-up was made by
Coach Coffey on football, track, soft-
ball, tennis and golf, participation in
both intramural and varsity sport
being recognized.
"Coach Coffey is to be congratulated for the energy and capability
with which he has handled his games
program this year. Through his effort and encouragement a very large
section of the student body is getting
direct benefit from athletics. The
busiest man on the campus, Ted is
being recognized as a genuine asset
to the University. His achievement
Is one which might be emulated to
advantage by other Canadian Universities.
In 1928, when the University of B.C.
won the Lipton Cup, and the first
season of Intercollegiate Rugby on the
coast, Vic Odium hold the position of
skipper and star middle on the Varsity squad, For several years since
then he has been out of touch with
athletics at British Columbia, but this
fall he has returned as a coach and Is
of great assistance to Dr. Oordon
Burke In building up tha Intercollegiate team that will face the prairie

In one of those freak games. In
which play is evenly divided, while
the scoring Is all one-sided, thc Senior Soccer team absorbed a 7*0 defeat on Saturday afternoon at the
hands of Renfrew Argyles at Renfrew Park. The score is no indication of the play, as in everything but
finish, the Varsity boys held their
own with their opponents, ln flni«n,
however, the play of the Renfrew
boys wiu perfect, thc forwards combining well In a short-passing attack,
and making every chance co> nt.
Renfrew kicked off, playing one
man Short, and for ten minutes, Varsity was on the attack. When finally Renfrew found their feet and
came down to Varsity territory,
Waugh handled about thirty-five
yards out. • The resultant free-kick
struck the underside of the bar and
bounded through. The second go^t
fcarne soon after, from another high
shot. Varsity was getting a fair share
of the play but did not have the
necessary punch to convert their attacks. A corner was won by the
Argyles and this resulted in still another goal. Before half time, another
counter was marked up, this time
the goal being headed in. Play so
far had been even, despite the heavy
advantage tiie Argyles held. Half-
time found play ui mid-field, with
the Blue and Oold down four goals.
After the Interval, Waugh and Kozoolin changed places, Waugh going
to centre-half, and Kosoolin to right-
half. Varaity again commenced on
tiie attack McDougal and Waugh being responsible for many fine plays.
However, Renfrew broke away to
score their fifth goal. The shot was
made from the goal-line, and crossed
the goal to strike the far post and
cross the line. Near the end Renfrew
added two more, one on a low shot
In the corner, and the other from a
penalty. Play was in mid-field at
the whistle.
Varsity's heavy defeat was the result of lack of finish and their attempt to play Renfrew's short passing game instead of a kick and run
attack., Outstanding for Varaity were
McDougal and Waugh, who broke
play after play, and who were also
strong in attack. Costain, although
badly hurt in the first half, gamely
continued, and turned in a good performance. Individually, the whole
team played well, but could not cope
with the perfection of the Renfrew
The, . team: Frattinger, McGill,
Grant, Waugh, Kozoolin, McDougal,
Smith, Munday, Costain, D. Todd,
and L. Todd.
