BIG AUDIENCE

MUSICAL TALK
Ap. Sc. 100 Filled To
Doors At Lecture
About Strings
DE RIDDeTlECTURER
"It is possible to find ln practically
any good musical composition some
short arrangement of notes and rests,
usually not more than a few bars,
over which thc whole composition is
built," said Allard de Ridder in his
lecture in Applied Science 100 at 3:30
on Wednesday afternoon. This lecture was the first of a series of five
which Mr. de Ridder is to give.
According to Mr. de Ridder a concert orchestra Is divided Into three
main groups, the strings, the woodwinds and the brasses, with on additional group, the percussion instruments. The strings are by far the
most Important, with the woodwinds
next.
VIOLIN FAMILY OUTLINED
"First of the stringed instruments
is, of course, the violin," he added.
There are four ways of playing a
violin in addition to the tremolo,
which itself oan be obtained in two
ways, according to Mr. de Ridder.
Because of this there is a very wide
range of effects. The viola is the
same shape as the violin but it has
one string lower, and a much deeper
tone. At times it Is hard to distinguish the pitch because of It's dark
tone. The 'cello has even deeper tone
than the viola, and Is much bigger.
The double bass is the deepest in
tone of all the string Instruments.
Two violins, a viola and a 'cello
make a string quartet, one of the
hardest groups to write for because
the lack of variety in tone quality
makes a very fine thought essential,
ln an orchestra this is changed to a
quintet with the double bass added.
MUSICAL FORM
"In the perception of the form and
symmetry of a composition a certain
amount of remembering Is necessary,"
he said, "because the theme or main
Idea Is often partially obscured by
long connecting passages. There are
often several themes In the work connected by other passages.
"The germ of the theme Is the motive, often only about two bars long;

graduates* Society Tuesday noon
In Arts 100 If enough Artsmen
turn up to Justify the Executive's hopeful suspicion that
there la some life left In the old
dog yet, announced President
Morley today.
Encouraged by the rally to
the Arts Ball last term the Executive have determined on a
complete reorganization of the
Society, which Is faced by the
tasks of arranging Its first "Open House" ln February, and aa-
slstlng the Tfenty-flrst Birth-
day celebrations in Congrcga-
ion Week.
"However, the Arts men must
turn out in sufficient numbers
to justify us in going to work,'"
stated the President."
Mart Kenney For
Sophomore Party
Members of Arts '38 who do not
wish to go in the class draw for the
coming party should inform the executive of their intentions. The party
is ,to be held Jan. 30 in the Spanish
Grill of the Vancouver Hotel.
Sophomore fees are being paid
fairly well but it will be necessary
to have all of them paid by the middle of next week in order that party
plans may be completed. The music
will be provided by Mart Kenney and
his Seven Western Gentlemen, who
are known across Canada by their
radio programs.
According to Janet Davidson, vice
president of Arts '38, the party should
be a success. "The executive," she
said, "is doing everything in its
power to plan an excellent evening."
Senior Girls Meet
Miss Moore At Tea
World Peace Is
Depending On
Europe's Acts
"Peace in Europe would assure
peace in the whole world." With
these words Mrs. R. Stuart Jamieson
brought to a close her interesting talk
"Is Peace Possible in Europe Today?"
to members of the Literary Forum,
in the Women's Common Room, on
Tuesday afternoon.
Mra. Jamieson was introduced to
the club by Dean Bollert, who said,
in her introduction, that "the most
fundamental thing of all in our social
economy is peace."
Mrs. Jamieson contrasted those
countries which menace peace, with
those who form the bulwarks of
peace. As examples of the former she
cited Italy and Japan; as examples
of the latter, the Scandinavian countries of orway, Denmark and Sweden.
EUROPEAN MENACE
"The biggest menace to peace in
Europe to-day is that the great countries control raw materials, while the
small countries have few raw materials, and must get them, either by
peace or by violence," said Mrs. Jamieson.
The other side of the picture Is
seen in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, where peace has reigned for the
past 100 years. These countries have
no desire to be industrialized, and
have no imperial ambitions. They
are interested in international affairs,
but make no effort to control other
lands. "The rest of Europe would
be wise to model itself on the Scandinavian countries."
Tea and refreshments were served
afterwards by members of the club.

BERTO LEADS YELLS
"To-day, In police work we are trying to build up character and to improve the morals of the force so that
it will be an attraction to educated
people," stated Col. W. W. Foster,
Vancouver's chief constable, In a Vo-
cational Guidanco lecture to a capacity audfcnce in Arts 100 Wednesday
noon.
To support his statement the chief
drew up a dual comparison firstly between police administration in England nnd America and secondly he
compared the police administration in
Vancouver In 1934 and as it is at
present. "In England tho police work
free from political and outside influence, on this continent, elected politicians control the police force for
political reasons," he said. In speaking of Vancouver before 1934 Col.
Foster indicated that conditions were
so sordid and terrible that they could
not be revealed to the public.
NO POLITICS
In his endeavour to make the force
fit the chief indicated his 'present
method of administration. With these
words, ''One of the first things I did
on being admitted to office was to
stress a new code to the men of the
force, and to allow them to carry it
out without political Interference."
In proof of the success of his scheme
he gave statistics that showed that
20 percent less holdups and 60 percent
more convictions had taken place
within the past year.
Throughout his talk Col. Foster
stressed a code of success for young
people starting out and he concluded
his speech by the Quote from Ghen-
gis Khan, "There la always a way to
success until courage falls."
The students showed their appreciation of the talk by setting a precedent for Vocational Guidance lectures
in giving Col. Foster a sky-rocket and
a Capilano, under the direction of
Tom Berto.
U.B.C. and
McGoun
In
Touring Debaters See
Signs of Latent
Wealth Here
BEAUTIFY COEDS
"The number of cars on your campus gives an impression of latent
wealth. We think it would be a great
place for Aberhart," stated William
Palk, visiting debater from Manitoba
who, with Cecil Sheps will meet Peter Disney and Dorwin Baird today
in the McGouan Cup debate.
Mr, Sheps also wished to know
whether U.B.C. stood for "University
of Beautiful Coeds."
Both debaters aro seniors, Palk in
Law, and Sheps in Medicine. They
gaw n brief sketch of the University
of Manitoba. There are faculties of
Law, Medicine, Arts, Science, Engi-
neerng, Home Economics, Theology
artd Agriculture. Registration this
year is about 2200.
"As for the trip out," they said, "it
produced the decision that both of us
will spend our honeymoon at the foot
of Mt. Robson."
The debaters are staying at the
Georgia, and were particularly impressed by the Courthouse. Another
feature which surprised them was the
green grass. A trip around Stanley
Park aroused considerable comment
upon the excellence of our climate.
When asked their opinion of the
Pep Club, Palk stated: "We think the
Pep Club is fine. Hermant and Kelloway talked of little else when they
came to Winnipeg.   It must be A-l."

Supplement To
Come Shortly
The literary supplement of the
Ubyssey will come out as soon as
enough material has been received,
so contributors are asked to hand in
their brain children to the Publications Office as early as possible.
These should be addressed In care
of the Literary Editor, who asks that
they be signed by the authors. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous
^eed only say so and his name will
not be published.
The field is not restricted: any form
of prose or verse is acceptable. Short
stories, poetry, short one-act plays,
satire, essays with literary quality-
all will receive careful consideration.
Whether they see print or not all
contributions will be acknowledged.
Varsity Men Lend Grace
To Ballet Performance
Sharing in the glamour and magnificence of the visiting Ballet Russe
during its two performances last
week, a select number of U.B.C. gentlemen obtained the backstage angle
in their respective capacities as Nubian slaves, huntsmen, eunuchs, and
gentlemen of the court. Harry Housser, Pete O'Brian, Hugh Palmer and
Graham Darling were included In the
extra ranks, and all were strongly
Impressed by their direct exposure to
Art ln Its loveliest manifestations.
There were no jarring details to
mar the performance even from a
view as close as the extras', thought
President Hugh Palmer of the Players' Club. Some of his more disturbing recollections were the classic
beauty and exotic facial expression
of Tamara Toumanova, Vera Zori-
na's beautiful figure, and a personal
yen for Sono Osato, lovely ballerina
whose features resemble those of
screen actress Merle Oberon.
WRONG DOOR
A rich field of awkward accidents
awaits the super at stage performances, and the U.B.C. men distinguished themselves therein. They were
bunted and shoved about backstage,
and one of them trod firmly on a
Russian face during "Scheherezade,"
bringing down a flood of mingled
Russian. French and English Invective. On their first excursion backstage,  they asked where to go and
were directed to the "First door to
your right." Following this advice
quite literally, they opened the required door and entirely confounded
one of the more beautiful and more
undressed ballerinas. "Oops", apologized the extras, and retired in distress.
The most beautiful performance, in
Prsident Palmer's mature judgment,
was fhat of Toumanova In "Aurora's
Wedding." Since he was standing directly behind her, Hugh was certainly qualified to make a statement;
even to add, as he did, "And I certainly don't believe the rumour that
she's getting musclebound."
MEN SMALL
The dancers are nevertheless definitely solid and developed. The men
he found small, quiet and full of vitality; "Masslne, when he had danced
his Hussar in 'Beau Danube', was
sweating like al Swede logger." Later,
in Massines' office, they edged past
a huge woolly sheepdog, the company's souvenir acquisition from Vancouver, for autographs.
Full of fervent admiration for the
perfection of technique, beauty and
precision of movement shown In the
Ballet, U.B.C.'s delegation to the Arts
have withdrawn with memories of
harems and swans, but have decided
to enjoy creative dancing from the
less strenuous position of the spectator.
Harris Speaks
On Value Of
Research Work
To view theoretical research from
the point of view of the big business
man, war, the basis of the address of
Dr. Allen Harris, M.L.A., before an
open meeting of the University Chemistry Society on Wednesday noon.
In describing the discoveries and
modern uses of gases Dr. Harris said.
"The development and utilization of
argon gas has saved billions of dollars for the consumer of electric light
on the American Continent alone."
The discovery of Helium in 1895 led
to the discovery of neon, he said,
which In 1923 was utilized by Prof.
Claude of Illinois university, in the
invention of a neon spark plug tester.
Although this was a failure mon
signs were, two yeara later, a commercial success.
Dr. Harris told of the accidents accompanying the discoveries of Helium, of "smoke screen gas," and of
Tantalum, the latter used in radio

S.C.M. Delegates
To Convention
Give Talks
The delegates to the quadrennial
convention of the international S.CM.
gave their reports to an open meeting
yesterday at noon. The chairman,
Bob McMaster, in opening the meeting, gave the background of the convention. He said that originally the
members were pledged to go out and
work in the far-away mission fields
of Africa and China. Now the work
Is spread al over the world, at home
and abroad.
Sam Rodden, the first delegate to
report, told of Rheinhold Niebuhr's
speeches. In his report he stated that
Rheinhold Niebuhr had a solution of
the present economic turmoil. Niebuhr's solution is to recognize man
not as a selfish animal, but rather
as an individual; to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about an economic change; and to recognize the
nature ot the change. To do this, he
said, we would have to replace capitalism by Christianity, and this
means socialism. Niebuhr is the leader of the Christian Socialist movement
Norah Sibley, the second to report,
spoke on Dr. E, Z. Koo. Dr. Koo
told of present day conditions in
China.
Peter Disney and Harry Morrow
spoke on the Archbishop of York.
The Archbishop is well known in
politics, as well as being a dignitary
in the Church of England.
Lois Sanderson gave her report on
Kagawa. Kagawa, sho said, did more
for Japan In the last few years than
any other man in Japan's history.
Bob McMaster closed the meeting
with a few announcements.

Ewart Hetherington yesterday in an
interview.
The party is planned for Thursday,
Jan. 23, and the place will be Stanley
Park Pavilion. The Senior Executive
haa secured a part of Mart Kenny's
orchestra to provide the music. This
is the same orchestra that played at
thc Grill before Kenny and the reat
of the band arrived.
"We had a good meeting, and enthusiastic support," said Hetherington. "And by all indications the Seniors are going to put this last claaa

BREATHING SPACE
Applied Science 100 was crowded to overflowing to hear the first of the music lectures
from Mr. de Ridder and his incidental musicians on Wednesday. The talk was well re-
ceived and proved of sustaining interest. Professor Walter Gage and others responsible for
the innovation are to be congratulated upon
their success.
We have one request to make. Can not it
be so that the succeeding talks are held in the
Auditorium? The chairman Wednesday spoke
of the need of a blackboard and a properly
tuned piano-but there is a compart black-
board frequently used by speakers in the Aud-
itorium, and tuning the piano only means a
few hours and a dollar or so. The public address system can be utilized if need be. Pos-
sibly using the Auditorium would sacrifice
some of the intimacy of the talks, but it would
make attention easier and distract the speaker
less.
PRIVILEGE
Some two thousand students have their activities centred on the U. B. C. campus, and
one can consider the University a pleasant little world in itself, removed from the city and
set in beautiful natural surroundings. In this
social unit, people are exposed to a part of the
world's knowledge and offered the opportunity
of assimilating as much of it as they will—the
privilege of enriching themselves, expanding
their sense of values, developing fields of
thought and opinion or technological accomplishment.
In the city itself, there is a vast body of
youth, far greater than that out here, working
in mills and factories, machine shops and warehouses. They have been working, eight hours
a day or more, since they left public school;
in all probability they will continue to work,
in the same job or type of job, for the greater
part of their lives. They are of necessity denied the privilege of enjoying a great many
things—partly covered under their opprobrious classification as The Arts—because they
have never had the means of learning to appreciate them. The movies and Street &
Smith's publications constitute a large part of
their diversions, which are largely if not exclusively cheap.
It is a matter for speculation what effort
university men and women exert towards effecting or even contemplating the improvement of the social order. Probably the continual struggle for self-sufficiency and furthering of personal interests will relegate the subject to a misty background. Meanwhile, there
are always the great, silent number of young
men and women working fifty weeks out of
fifty-two, whose lives are drab and cheap because they don't know and can't appreciate
those interests we here are offered, the advantage of studying and valuing.
I'm inviting all my constant readers to my
piano recital some time within the next five
or ten years. Persephone and I will call for
each of you, which seems to include the estimable editor, Connie, Mr. Riddehough, and the
Unknown Fan. Perhaps I should explain that
I just began studying the piano in November,
and that I'm learning out of a book, so it may
be all of ten years yet.
People here suggest that the mortality rate
is bound to shoot up what with people laughing when I sit down at the piano, then dying
laughing when I start to play. O, well, I can
think of several people who would be happier
put out of their misery.
The radio offers all sorts of opportunities to
listen to the best pianists, and I'm in sort of a
dilemma about which one to emulate. Rachmaninoff I have heard in person. But I don't
think I could ever play as he does. When he
sits at the piano, it seems to become an extension of his hands, the most I can ever expect
to be is a sort of lean-to on the piano. I would
like to be able to play the famous prelude of
his. I've always thought it must be such splendid exercise for keeping the contours of the
tummy flat.
Then there's Percy Grainger, who played
the piece known to me simply as "Pe-ercy
Grai-ainger" last Sunday at noon. I have to
think between notes, so I couldn't ever play
like that. I might be able to play the prim
ladylike parts of the Minuet in G a la Pader-
ewski, but I don't think I could zoom down
the keyboard with the exuberance of a horse
and buggy and still hit the right notes.
That leaves Mischa Levitski, Fats Waller,
Duke Ellington and Eddie Duchin, all of whom
leave me equally limp with discouragement. I
might be able to learn the little prancing introduction which Duchin puts on before all his
pieces, but I have enough trouble playing the
top bar with my right hand and the bottom one
with my left and I'm sure any vice versa-ing
would leave me with a bad stutter. Duke Ellington has the most aristocratic style of all, so
he will probably be the last one I get to, so I
guess V]l work on Levitski or Waller.
LA CANADIENNE
The next meeting of the club will

Working Hard
At Production
As a matter of fact I'm learning out of two
books. The first one was John M. Williams'
Pupil book, and no matter how hard I tried
I never got past "Flippety floppity flips the
frog, noisily singing for rain and fog." After
that everything was foggy and all sorts of
queer looking things crept between the bars,
which I could not successfully ignore.
So I got Mr. Williams' teacher's book, and
discovered for instance, that those jigger things
that look like the top of a riding crop had
something to do with quarter rests, and that a
dot was significant, and two dots meant you
had to go back to the start.
That was the first intimation I ever had
about counting, and I'm twenty-one ! The day
I found that out I counted so hard that I
couldn't practise for three days because it left
me so hoarse. But everything is hunky dorey
now, and I'm going to graduate into "Long,
long ago" in a couple of weeks.
I'll be seeing all you fans at my recital.
Tally-ho.

APOLOGETIC DEPT.
Anxious to obtain parts in the col
orful Gilbert and Sullivan opertta,
"Pirates of Penzance," Musical So
ciety members are competing strenuously ih try-out parts. A final cast
has not yet been agreed upon.
A resume of the plot of this rollicking work follows:
Frederic, the chief character, is
bound apprentice to the Pirates of
Penzance through a mistake on the
part of Ruth, his nursery maid. She
confuses the word "Pilot" with "Pirate" and when she discovers her
mistake she remains with the band
rather than face her master's anger
The    years    pass    until    Frederic
reaches his majority when he deter
mines to have the trade he loathes
as he <s now free from his indenture
He has not seen a woman for thir
teen  years   and  Ruth,   who   adores
him. convinces him that she is young
and  beautiful  but  with the arrival
of    Major-General    Stanley's    many
daughters he realizes that Ruth has
deceived him.   Frederic begs the girls
to love him but Mabel is the only
one who takes pity on him.
The Pirates appear suddenly and
joyfully seize the girls, but they re
linquish them when their father
makes i< pathetic appeal to their better natures by telling them that he
ii an orphan, and would be left all
alone if the Pirates kept the girls
The above was all about me, deliberately.
After Mr. Monty Roberts' comment on O. O.
Mclntyre's use of the letter "I," I had a heavy
think and came out with the theory that everybody is more interesting than anything else in
the world, but columnists have the best chance
to prove it. It's vaguely reminiscent of Colonel Stoopnagle's slogan for his Keeping-Out-
of-the-White-House campaign. "People have
more fun than anybody !"
Probably it means about as much, too.
 O	
USELESS INFORMATION
The  Metropolitan  Opera House  in  New
York has cuspidors two feet in diameter.   Not
only is this information utterly useless, but
considering the tony crowd which goes to the
I opera, probably the cuspidors are, too.
The Major-General is tortured by
his conscience for telling a lie to
save himself and his daughters. Frederic in the meantime has collected a
force of policemen to attack the Pirates, and the General and his daughters cheer them on their way. Just
before they set out Ruth and the Pirate King come to Frederic and tell
him that, as he was born on the 29th
of February, he is only five and a
quarter years old and is still in their
power. Frederic's sense of duty compels him to tell of the General's deception and, furious at being duped,
Ruth and the King go off to collect
their band. While they are gone
Frederic and Mabel pledge themselves
to remain faithful forever.
I The Police are utterly defeated
when the Pirates attack the castle
but the Pirates giwj themselves up
when their loyalty to the Queen is
appealed to. They, in turn, arc released when Ruth explains that they
aro really noblemen. When the General hears this he is delighted to give
them his daughters as brides and
Mabel and Frederic are once more
united.

Again Oscar looked about him.
He and Bummond were stretched
. out on tables, tied firmly, ready to
be operated upon by the cruel and
ruthless Chang Suey, who had as his
diabolic purpose the altering of both
their faces so that they would look
like each other. The situation seemed
hopeless. They were at the mercy of
an insane monster. They faced the
true Yellow Peril.
The strains of weird music continued.
Suddenly Scribblewell found that
one of hia little fingers—the left one-
was not securely bound. He could
move It!
With a gigantic effort he twisted
the loose finger so that he could work
at the straps which bound the rest
of the hand. While the Chinese devil
was placing Bummond under the
ether, Oscar quickly released nil
(Oscar's) left hand. It was then but
a matter of seconds before both hia
hands were free.
Once, Chang Suey (curse him for a
fool) looked back to assure himself
that the reporter was up to no monkey business. Scribblewell seemed to
be O.K. so the monster returned his
attenUon to Bummond.
Soon as he was free, Oscar planned
to escape, and, if humanly possible, to
help Bummond do the same. Taking
advantage of Suey's preoccupation,
the reporter crept up behind the
Chinaman and grabbed him from behind. But he reckoned without Chang
Suey's superhuman strength. The
monster turned upon Oscar but that
worthy young man was fleeing for
hia life.
Finding an open door in the far end
of the operating room, Oscar pasaed
through it and fled down a long, narrow corridor. Looking back over his
shoulder he saw that Chang Suey was
not  pursuing him.    Wondering,  he
BURP'S DIARY
Went to the football game yesterday.
Afterwards went to the Blue Moose,
where we had the most scrumptious
tea, except that the waitress spilled
soup all over my new coat from Nan
Baloney's, and the chair was so rickety that Jack fell down and tore his
pantss.
Yesterday to to town to Mrs. Blot-
ton's Lingerie shop. She has the duck-
iest pink panties. But I didn't buy
any on account of buying so many
things to put in this column has just
about broken me.
Then on to Bray's Clevah Shooes.
To turn back in a pair of shoes which
were too small. Saw pairs and pairs
of shoes. I asked them some questions, but they just lay in their
boxes, and didn't answer. So I don't
see why they call them clever.
Past the C.P.R. dock, where I saw
that well dressed man about the
campus, R , J. Dillam, strutting
around before a movie camera. Just
learned that Dillam has been appointed to an honorary office in the Society of Thoth. Royal Eunuch, my
dears.   Now he is R. J. Dillam, R.E.
Now I've finished this column I'm
going down to Sloppy Joe's and have
a hamburger. I'm tired of those damn
teas.

stopped  in  his  tracks  and  thought
over what he should do next.
All of a sudden he discovered that
the ground on which he stood was
slowly sinking. Then, with breathtaking suddenness, he was hurled into what seemed a bottomless pit
He finally reached the bottom with
a bump that shook the breath from
his body.   Gathering himself together
he took stock of hia surroundings. He
was in  a room about twenty feet
long and but two feet wide.  One end
of the room waa about six feet higher
than the other,
i
I And then, he realized with a sickening feeling that the lower end of
the room was filled with water, and
in the water many anaker were
writhing around. Snakes so horrible
looking that Oscar shuddered at the
thought of having one of them wind
its slimy lengths around his body.
Looking again to that awful pool of
water, Scribblewell saw that the level
was rising. Rising, and bringing with
it those insidious snakes!

University of Alberta, Edmonton,
Jan. 14—"It appears that all the king's
horses, not to mention his men, will
not be able to get the debating and
Engineering Societies together on the
matter of which should have sole
rights to the evening of Jan. 17 for
the Inter-Varsity debates and the
"Undergrad" respectively. Last year's
Council argued for 1 hour and 17 minutes last Wednesday evening before
peace v/as restored by appointing a
committee with full powsr to look
into the matter." The Undergrad is
one of the foremost social functions
of the year, and is put on each year
by a different undergraduate organization. This year it was awarded
to the Engineers. Through an oversight both the Undergrad and the Inter-Varsity debates have been scheduled for the same evening. By the
time the error had been discovered
nothing could be done, as by the provisions o fthe constitution the debates
must be held on that evening, and
the Engineering Students' Society has
already engaged an orchestra for the
same night. It seems likely that
preparations will go ahead as scheduled nnd that both events will take
place on Jan. 17.
DRAMA FESTIVAL ENTRY
"Boccaclo's Untold Tale" by Kemp,
will be the University Dramatic Society's entry in the Alberta Dramatic
Festival, to be held in Calgary on
Feb. 6, 7 and 8. The cast requires
two men and three women. Try-outs
are announced for this week.
The Edmonton Little Theatre is offering a course of lectures on the
drama, to be given by Mrs. Nelson
Haynes, Dramatic Director of the University of Alberta Extension Department. The course will cover amateur
presentation — directing, acting, diction, make-up, etc. The registration
fee for the course has been set at 29c.
John Conway and Alvin Rosenbaum
of the University of British Columbia
will meet an Alberta team composed
of Leonard Bercuson and Harold
Beveridge in Convocation Hall here
an Jan. 17, in one of the aeries of
Inter-Varaity debates being held at
all Western Canadian universities that
evening. Victor Chmelnltaky and
Hugh John MacDonald will travel to
Saskatoon to debate with the University of Saskatchewan the same
evenihg.
CONFERENCE GOOD
Ted Bishop, President of the Students' Union, has returned to the
university, having been in Eastern
Canada attending the convention of

being In the East to visit Montreal,
Toronto and New York while there,
and Chicago on his way home.

ALBERTA "TOTEM"
Interviewed today Blimey Hutton,
director of the 1935-36 "Evergreen and
Gold," University of Alberta yearbook, expressed complete satisfaction
with the progress made on the publication to date. First section was in
the hands of the printer before the
end of December and three more sections have gone to press since. The
completed book will be composed of
twenty sections with sixteen pages
apiece, oi 320 pages in all. He gave
tha assurance that this year's book
will be fully up to the high standard
set in the past few years, mentioning
particularly that the covers would be
extremely striking. "Evergreen and
Gold" underwent a complete modernization three years ago, both the size
and shape of book being revised to
conform more closely to the style favored in the larger American institutions.

Songs and Yells
At Smus Meeting
"Sciencemen and Nurses should get
better acquainted," stated Harvey
Caruthers when he outlined a program to the "red-shirts" yesterday
noon in Ap. Sc. that featured p. party
at which members of SMUS, nurses
and engineers were to come stag and
get acquainted. "God knows some of
you Sciencemen need to get acquainted and damn soon if your going to
the Science Ball," he said.
The meeting was held to outline the
business policies  that the  executive
are pursuing In reference to the Intra-Mural sports and to the Science
Ball but the meeting got out of hand
when as a novelty issue a new science song was introduced which was
a parody on "School Days."
"School Days, School Days;
Poker, crap and pool days,
Necking and petting and how to be
fast,
Taught to the tune of a hip-pocket
flask.
You were my Queen in Oh-Oh-Oh;
I was your half-crocked Romeo.
You wrote on my slate, "you are too
damned slow,"
When we were a couple of twerps."
The Sciencemen also insisted on
rendering "The Music Goes Round
and Round", together with numerous
other Science songs and yells.
The executive not to be outdone,
abruptly brought the meeting to order and Tel Potter outlined a series
of lectures to be given by visiting
Engineers and appealed to the sciencemen to turn out. A pep talk was
given by Bern Brynelsen, who asked
the sciencemen for their support of
the new Physical Director. The meeting was brought to a close with an
"Engineers."

Peace Conference At
Eastern University
Student Peace conferences have
been held in various universities before, the most recent and the most
successful being at McGill two weeks
ago with almost 200 representatives
from four Quebec universities and
colleges. Congresses of this nature,
in addition to providing the opportunity of hearing outstanding speakers on Peace, are of great value in
encouraging peace activltes in the
universities. It is Intended that the
coming Congress at Toronto will be
able to knit together and carry forward the work done by past conferences in awakening students to the
ever-growing need of working for
peace.
Plans are being made at the University of Toronto for the holding of
a Canadian Student Peace Congress
during the Christmas holidays In Toronto. The Congress is being called by
the Student Peace Movements of Ontario and Quebec. The committee in
charge includes members of many of
the larger organizations on the Toronto campus. Calls to the Congress
will be extended to all thc various
organizations and societies in all the
Canadian Universities, with the hope
of securing as nearly a national representation of students as possible.

rectifiers. Helium was once labelled
"Kansas wind gases" in 1903 when a
gentleman who owned a natural gas
well in Dexter, Kansas, attempted to
demonstrate its ignition to a group
of friends, and failed, and in 1914
when a Zeppilin which flew over
London and refused to burn when
shot at, the gas was found to be Helium, he stated.
"Early in the war," he continued,
"the discovery of smoke-screen gas

laboratory of a professor who was an
unheeded advocate of this gas and
threw « vessel into the court yard.
Subsequently the French government
began to make teturium chloride for

possible by the discovery of tantalum
was perfected when the "lab boy"
dropped some iron washers into the
sulphur vat thus supplying the needed Iron sulphate. The rectifier brings
an annual income of about $2,000,000

"A combination of several themes

Mr. de Ridder went on to aay that
two or more phrases, with or without an extension, makes up a period,
and several periods make up an extended period, or a complete work.

Dear Sir:
Who asked Mr. Ian Eisenhardt to
speak on Tuesday? As he said, "Someone must have asked me or I would
not be here." True. Then why was
there no chairman to open the meeting? Really, such lack of courtesy
is very risky in a University as young

That is so, but we should be more
careful.

U.B.C   TO  ABANDON   AMERICAN FOOTBALL
Province Stars Want Competition,
Will Play Two Teams Saturday
Fonts At 8:00 — Varsity At 9:00
Tomorrow night at the Student Indoor Playground, Province All-Star Basketeers intend to show effectively and conclusively that they are the invincible wonder team, and undoubtedly the class of the local league.
For the sole benefit and enlightenment of the general basketball public they propose to do this, by performing the "Ironmen" stunt, playing
Forsts' Senior B at 8:00, and our own
Thunderbird Senior A entry at 9:00.
However, the Blue and Gold squad
have taken to the old Army cry of
"They shall not pass," and intend to
upset the proverbial apple cart by
defeating the highly-touted Newsies.
It would seem that on their record,
their chances of performing this feat
are very slim, but the hard-fighting
Collegians are undaunted by such
terrific odds and point out tha* no
team in the league have administered
a "white-wash" since their eventful
Southern tour.
The Southern atmosphere appealed
so much to the boys of our Alma
Mater that they went "down-under"
again on Wednesday where they
played Bellingham Normal. Although
they lost again, the College team's
defense was immensely improved and
they held the strong Bellingham team
to a 25-22 win.
"Franny" Mitchell, Senior B star,
who travelled with the team to Bellingham, will be performing regularly
on the Senior A team, taking the
place of Bruce Millar, forced out at
least temporarily by the complicated
rule-book.
So all and withal, who knows what
may be the outcome of the unique
Saturday night preview?

Mackenzie, Jack West, Pat MacMillan
and John Logan "are in charge of arrangements.
The president stresses the fact that
membsrs must get out to all practices, "although Interest Is very keen
amongst the freshman rowers we are
not getting the old timers out. These
men must realize that support must
be forthcoming from them, and they
must get down and row as per

Alex Macintosh, crew captain, announced that intense training for the
different crews will start early in
February. Crews will run as usual
until the first week In February when

Team To Be Entered
In Big Four League
Report of Committee Accepted At
General Meeting
No American football games will be in the schedule of
the Canadian Rugby Club in 1936. The report of the committee
appointed to investigate the football situation was accepted yesterday noon at the general meeting of the University Canadian
Rugby Club.
The full text of the report is presented below, and provides for a team to enter the Vancouver Big Four League next
season.
After investigating the attitude of
students, non-students, and football
players for some weeks, the committee, which was appointed at the
meeting of November 19, 1935, and
which was comprised of Dr. G. M.
Shrum, Laurie McHugh, Barney Boe,
Rudy Paradis, and Bob Twiss, and,
ex-officio, Norm Martin, met on Sun-
clay, Jan. 5, to discuss the most suitable form of football to be played
next season. John Harrison, President of the Men's Athletic association,
was present at the meeting and his
counsel and advice were appreciated
by all present.
The Committee was unanimous in
all its decisions.
1. It was agreed that:
(a) Intercollegiate competition is of
vial Importance to sport at the University.
(a) One of the primary alms of the
Canadian Rugby Club haa been to
encourage intercollegiate competition.
(c) The Pacific Northwest Colleges
provide a suitable outlet for intercollegiate competition.
(d) That the calibre of football
played in these colleges Is approximately equivalent to that played by
the top Senior Teams in the Big Four
Union.
(e) That it is not advisable for the
University to play American football
with these colleges until such time as
Spencers Defeat
Senior Women
A miracle almost occurred when
Varsity's Senior Women's basketball
team came near to winning a game.
A surprised Spencer team, the co-eds'
opponents, won only by very good
passing and shooting in a third quarter rally.
Although Spencer's jumped Into the
lead nt the beginning of the game,
the blue and gold girls outplayed
them to make the score 6-3 in their
own favour. After that, it was a
steady battle which ended at half time
with Spencers on top, 16-15.
After such a struggle Varsity's pep
seemed to disappear a little while the
victors steadily became stronger. The
co-eds' checking was not as effective
as before and Spencers ran up a formidable score, 46-24, in their favor.
Varsity was the better team in the
first half: they were checking hard
and besides were breaking through
the winners 'defense to score. But,
for the rest of the game, Spencers
were on top. Their passes were
clicking and their shots nearly always
seemed to find the basket.
Team: I. Campbell 15, E. Clarke 4,
B. Evans, M. McCulloch, A. Munton,
L.  Nixon, M. Ralph, T. Spencer, J.

-NEVISON.
we haw a Canadian Football team of
the calibre of those which played in
the Big Four League in 1928, 29 and
80.
2. It is recommended that:
(a) The Canadian Rugby Club include no American Football games
in their schedule for 1936.
(b) For next year the Canadian
Rugby Club enter a team in the Big
Four League.
(c) Every effort be made to arrange intercollegiate competition with
the Western Canadian Intercollegiate
Rugby Union for the Hardy Cup.
