More sparsely attended than ever
before, the Women's Athletic Association banquet still proved a source
of profit and enjoyment to some 80
athletically or publicly spirited coeds who enjoyed chicken a la UnderhUl and toast-mistreulng a la
Witbeck on Thursday night last.
Proposing a toast to the Alma Mater
Society, Dean Bollert referred to the
late flight of Amelia Earheart, who
sprite in the city lately. She compared the letter's stoadfut resolution
to "foUow the compass" through

standard during the past difficult
ln answering the toast, Dorothy
Thompson stressed the Importance
of the meaning of "Responeo" in all
things appertaining to the society.
Mrs. Boving spoke of "The Spirit
of Athletics," and the necessity for
carrying the greatest part of lt Into
Ufe Itself. "lite Is a game, and all
things show it," she paraphrased
John Oray's epitaph, "I thought so

Collins' Letter Of Resignation j
The events of the past few days have placed me In a very
difficult pogition, and it ig in an attempt to remedy this situation
that I am taking this present step.
1 If the validity of the recent Presidential Election were the
only matter at stake, I would not adopt the course which I am
following at the present time, for I feel, that in spite of minor
irregularities which occurred after the ballots had been counted,
and the results of the poll determined, the election was entirely
valid and a true indication of the wishes of the Alma Mater
There is, however, a further consideration—the well-being
of the University. It is possible that the present disagreement
will produce serious consequences which will result in an internal disruption in the Alma Mater Society during the coming
year. In an endeavour to avoid this and to bring to a conclusion the present dispute, I hereby resign, with a requeat that
a by-election be held u goon as possible.

Manifestations of Modernity
In Art Derided by Librarian
Opposite Sexes To
Vote Apart Today
For the election of officers of the
Alma Mater Society today men and
women wttl vote separately. Whether
tho presence at the critical moment
of feminine pulcrltude and masculine
virility was thought to be Influential
to the issue, or whether convenience
alone wu considered, Is a matter for
interested conjecture.
At any rate, men to register their
votes must journey to the Council
room, while women will be accomodated In their Upper Common
room, converted to a polling station
for the purpose.
Art Exhibit Of
'Creative' Work
In Library Now
Another modern art exhibit is
being displayed ln the University
Library this week. Ite modernity
consists in Its share In the revolt
against much of the too highly-embellished and superficial in art.
"Creative" art sums to explain its
character most appropriately, and
the intention has been to express
some mood evoked by the scene or
object rather than to paint what is
immediately before the eyu.
Miss Eniily Carr'a work is then
interpretative rather than reailstic.
Her work shows spiritual significance
which is so weU expressed by its organized and rhythmic design.
Mr. M. S. Maynard hu used a similar and structural method in his
charcoal sketches. In "Cedar" we
see the dignity and grandeur of a
large tree and the Impressive devastation ln "Waste Land."
Min Hembroffa work on the other
hand belongs more to the studio, Illustrating the advantages of distortion and the necessity of suppressing certain parts of the subject. In
aU her paintings the colour harmonies are delightful, u, for Instance,
in the grey hat against the green
curtains ln the portrait study. "Moon
and Cedars" Is a pleasing design but
the Ufe hu been to some extent
crushed out of it by too formal and
geometrical treatment.
"A picture that must be explained
by an expert and la then still unln-
teUJgible should never be foisted on
an unprotected world by tho perpe-
tetor. Modernists have divorced Art
from Beauty, but As whom Ood hath

statement wu made by John Rid-
dington before the Vancouver Institute Saturday night.
Speaking of lack of Art appreciation, he mid: "The older generation
of Canadians has no appreciation or
sympathy for Art and the younger
degeneration is growing up with the
same  ignorance.
"Until recently there have been no
facilities whatever for studying Art
in Canadian Universities and its pure
pleasure and aesthetic Interest is
totally unknown. Recently the College Art Association have been distributing collections but they are
mostly the blurbs of mad Impressionists and do not give a true picture
of Art as an intellectual treat. The
masters u a whole are vague myths.

has been the case for the past years is requir

there will be no let down of the usual high standard set here, so it is up to the students to see
that the quality of their work is maintained.
Failure can be only attributed to the student's laziness or inability to adjust himself
to the new situation with sufficient rapidity.
Many students will find that discussions are
a great help in reviewing the year's work, and
that more work than usual can be accomplished in a stated time.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I have road the report of Mrs. Ken-
daU's address reported In tho Ubyssey of February 84. Her remarks
seem to bo very one-sided, and I
would Uke to placo before the students a few points for consideration.
(1) "Mrs. KendaU pointed out with
great care tho exhorbltant rates of
interest, ranging from 75 to ISO per
cent." As an Indian I can uy with
certainty that no suoh high rates of
interest are charged. The Bank interest is 'approximately 6 ps. cent
and private money interest is ut officially at 9 per cent by government
authority. It may be that there is
a possibility of a sUghtly higher rate
In some private arrangements; but to
suggest, u Mrs. KendaU dou a rate
of from 75 to 150 per cent is beyond
our beUef and finds no support in
fact. Mr. Ghandl, u an Individual,
could not ln any cue be responsible

lending clau and when we realise

Today the students of this University will
have the opportunity of choosing next year's
board of directors.
There are fifteen candidates contesting seven offices, but it seems to us that the calibre
this year is rather lower than usual for certain. There Is no need to mention the office or
offices referred to—most students can come to
their own conclusion.
We would like to urge everyone to vote. At
the same time we would like to suggest to students that If, in their opinion, no candidate is
worthy of the office to which he aspires, no
vote should be cast. In this way, the size of the
poll for the various bffices will indicate whether
the candidate is acceptable to at least a representative proportion of the student body.
In fact it might be made a condition of election, that the poll of the winning candidates
be more than fifteen per cent of the registered
student body. In this way we should be assured
of acceptable officers on Council. Students
might try the method of registering their disapproval suggested and see if the result is satisfactory.
Council can claim to have accomplished at
least one thing this year. They have defeated
the Pub. Board at basketball.
The confusion caused by the contradictory
bombshells hurled between upholders and de-
precators of modern art defeats the common
purpose of the opponents, that of introducing
art to the students.
The Theologicians who defeated the now
famous motion: "Resolved that this house will
under no circumstances fight for King and
Country" resemble the women of Glasgow University who desired to vote down the motion.

on the Ubyssey I ought to know enough about
the Seamy Side to pack the bookshops. The
Literary Editor has taken hold of this idea in
her usual masterful way, and has guaranteed
to supply me with enough of the horrid death
scenes of all her particular friends to out-
Wallace Wallace.
So it goes. Some will deplore the flippant
treatment I have accorded a grave subject. To
these I would point out that to take the problem seriously at this stage would conduce to
hours of lying awake considering. And such
a habit, Indulged In soon before the exams,
would but increase the undoubted hazards of
the situation.
Looking over the last two issues of the
Ubyssey for material worthy of note, I was
struck by the head, "Buchanan Treats British
Scientists at Institute Meet." Knowing our
genial Dean, I wish I had been a British scientist and on that party.

I notice that Alf Foubister, Arts '33, has
come forward and stoutly denied all responsibility for a letter purporting to have been written by him and appearing in the correspondence column of the 35th issue. This is a
great relief to the staff, which had been wondering how the serious indictor and publisher
of such a scroll could have made his fourth

one for the less fortunately endowed mentally.

to the money-lenders having above
20,000 rupees per year. But the
farmer population, being 85 per cent
of the whole population, are paying
50 per cent and above in taxes. (See
"Prosperous British India," by Mr.
(3) Mrs. Kendall stated that, "there
are only 60,000 British troops and
158,000 Indian troops at the present
time." These figures may be correct
but In reaUty she did not discuss the
problem in detail. The facts nro
that no Indians are allowed to enlist
in the Artillery or the Navy. The
158,000 of the Indian Army are commanded by British officers, excepting that there might be one or two
per cent of the officers who are Indians. In other words the Indians
are expected to prepare only for the
fighting line. So far as the Khyb-ar
Pass being the scene of seventy-five

Command she will be able to defend
herself from invaders."

—Special Rates for College Parties—
fi the Members ot tho lion's Undergraduate Sooioty:
On the foUowing platform I base
my candidature for President of
Men's Athletics:
1. I «ii definitely In favor Ot in-
ter-ooUegUte competition. Since our
athletic relations with Canadian un-
ivsrritiu are extremely limited owing to lack of time and money, I beUeve that wo should look for our
competitors to the south of us, where
there are many coUegu maintaining
a high standard in athlettea. Travelling expenus would bo smaU and
Uttle time would be Involved. Wo
would have first clau competition In
track, basketbaU, golf, tennis, badminton and possibly soewr, Canadian
rugby and lee hockey. The Vancouver people would be inellnod to support our teams In preference to outride teams. This would result ln
much favorable publicity lor the University as a whde and would gain,
us many supporters.
i. I would advocate proper mauv
tenanu of tho stadium playing field
and trarit until such a time u lt
would Jto possible to float a bond
issue and buUd suitable suting accomodations, l.e., when tho gymnasium hu boon paid for.
S. In order to avoid a repetition of
the trouble encountered recently
with tho basketbaU lugue, I would
suggest tho Inclusion of a faculty
representative on sU delegations or
commltteu representing tho university in any sporting activity. In thit
way tho students would have the
support of the faculty and any agreements made with outside organizations would undoubtedly carry more
4. Tho percentage of men competing In Intor-elau sports is very low.
I would suggest the formation of a
softball league, every clau having
the prlvUege of entering as many
teams u they wish. In this way the
men with least natural athletic ability would bo given an opportunity
to play a sport.
5. Last year the treasurer's report
to the Alma Mater Society showed
a surplus of over 12000. I believe
that Council should try to apportion the budgets of the various clubs
as nearly as possible to the amount
of money on hand. Then every member of tiie A.M.S. wopld receive full
value for his fu yearly.
Having served on the executives of
the Science Men's Undergraduate Society, the clau of Science '34, and
Men's Athletics and competed in
many sports both on and off the
campus, I ful that I have had ample
experience to understand the athletic situation in our university.
If elected, I will endeavor to give
fair and unbiased judgments on all
questions and will work for the Improvement of athletics on our campus.
Sincerely yours,
To tho Men ef the University:
I bau my candidature for President
of the M.U.S. on the Introduction of
new ideu. I ful that this office
can be an opportunity for putting
into effect a number of much nud-
ed improvements on this campus,
rather than simply an administrative
office. The foUowing election promises are a sample of what I propose.
They are definite and practical. They
can and wUl be carried out.
1. A complete Investigation into the
possibility of introducing the scrip-
ticket system to foster interest in
student activities. This system is
used by most of the Universities in
Canada and the U. S. It has many
variations but consists basically in
the issue of a book of tickets (athletic and non-athletic) to each student at a reduced rate. The book
may be cashed in after n set period
if a certain number of tickets have
not been removed, Complete information would be collected from other
Universities and a plan prepared and
submitted to the Alma Mater Society
for consideration.
2. Organization of the M.U.S. into
an active body with a definite aim.
The Women's Undergrad has shown
the way. The object of the organization would be determined by the
members and might take a line similar, say, to the Women's Union
Building Fund.
3. The development of the common
rooms into reasonably comfortable
lounges. The establishment of a furnishing fund for this purpose might
easily be the aim of the M.U.S. mentioned above.
The common rooms would also
contain the dozens of exchange newspapers which arrive every week at
the Pub. Office. These would be arranged on regulation Ubrary newspaper holders and would keep the
students aware of what other Universities are doing. These papers
are a popular feature of U. of Alberta common rooms.
4. The publication of a student song
book. Every other University anywhere near our size has one. Why
can't we? A large elaborate book
is out of the question but actually
quoted printers prices show that a
respectable song book could be produced within our financial range.
5. Introduction of an active initia
tion program. The Initiation bal boon
cut out for certain obvious reasons,
but it hu boon replaced by practic-
aUy nothing. The Initiation would
foUow the llnu outlined below.
(a) Revival of tho Famous Freshmen Noon-hour Revuu.
(b) Two big Initiation smokers.
One presented by the Sophs and
one by tho Frosh . Elaborate first-
clau entertainment.
(o) Appointment of a Sophomore
poUclng committee to organise an
efficient check by the clau on Frosh
evading regulations or missing meetings. Punishment would bo something Uke, say, running a gauntlet
of Soph, peddlers In tiie quad at
(d) Borne event, suph u a higily
organized Thutre Night, which
would permit tho clau u a unit to
blow off steam before tho pubUc
Without seriously damaging the Unl-
varsity's reputation.
I, Prossntetio-i of more elaborate
and attractive. University datum
University functions are uldom financial succeeus becauu they are
generally loss attractive than oertain
other dansu in the city. Tha best in
novelty entertainment, orchestras,
and halls should be available at current admission prieu.
Hie question of tho revival of the
Faculty Balls would be submitted to
the students. The concensus of opinion seems to bo that tho daneu have
suffered u a result of the elimlna-
tion of tho old Inter-Faculty rivalry.
Editor's Note: Milton*Owen, the
other candidate for this position did
not wish to submit a platform, therefore please do not construe the publication of only two platforms from
tho candidates for M.U.S. as par-
Athletic Representative
To the Members of the Alma Mater
Through the Ubyssey I take this
opportunity of soliciting your support
of my candidature for the position
of President of Men's Athletics during the coming year.
The position calls for executive
ability combined with a thorough
knowledge of the requirements of the
different branchu of sport. As pras-
ldent of the Track Club and a member of the Men's Athletic Executive
this year I have become famUlar
with the detail attached to the poal
tion. Former executive experience
in sport and other organizations have
given me an understanding of exec
utlve work. My knowledge of sport
hu been gained both from active
participation ln nearly every branch
of sport repruented at the university. I have represented the university in English Rugby, Track and
Ice Hockey.
In looking forward to next year I
see several opportunltlw for building up the athletic department of
student activltiu. New outride competition of collegiate caUbre must be
found. The Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Ass'n. wiU be unlikely to function, during the coming
year. The long trips between colleges are far too expensive and entail too much loss of time. Attractive affiliations of equally high calibre may be made with coUeges to
the south of us, Involving only a
fraction of our former expense and
loss of time. Less expense means
more money for equipment. This
year it seems that the Men's Athletic will not get much from the Alma Mater fees. While economy must
even next year be the order, still
there is no reason why athletics
should suffer a reduction when fees
have not been reduced. I stand for
enough money being devoted to athletics to adequately equip our various organizations and to keep our
playing fields in good condition.
Inter-class sport is one of the most
interesting features of our University life, but too little interest is
shown by certain classes, partly because of lack of initiative on the part
of their athletic representatives. I
favour keeping In touch with these
men and stirring those negligent
ones to some show of action. All
members of the Alma Mater Society
are interested In the Stadium project. The Stadium must be put into
shape so that we can have games on
it, and collect revenue from the
gates. I support an aggressive Stadium policy. From our basketball
dispute of this year we have learned
that arrangements with down-town
leagues Involving money must be
put into writing. If ln office I would
insist on written agreements In such
The holder of this office must be
prepared to devote much time and
work to the successful performance
of his duties. I am willing to give
and to use my best efforts in carrying out the responsibilities attached
to the position.
In conclusion I wish to express my
thanks to those who have supported
my nomination.

scored but not counted for obvious
reasons. White repeated his effort
before Rogers retaliated on a lone
rush through contra. Two more baskets by tho pocket-edition Olympians and CampbeU changed his zona
defenu system to somebody else's.
Half-time score wu 11-6 with

their best scoring. With Milne in

Into Varrity area, only to be stopped
by a fast tackle by Hoyie Cleveland,
which brought play to within two
yards of the touch line. Versatile

Blue and Gold Control
Play But Lade Punch
—Score 1-A11
With the forwards falling to provide any scoring punch, Varrity
Senior soccer team wu forced to
accept a 1-aU draw with Chlneu
Students ln their last First Division
V. and D. League game at Cambie
street Saturday.
Outside of the complete failure «of
the forwards to count oh their opportunities, the team played a good
game, and controlled play throughout most of the game. Frattinger
kept a good goal, while McGUl and
McLeod played a steady game at
back. The halves with Wolfe outstanding, supported the forwards
well, and kept the ball in the Orion
tal goal-mouth. The forwards' work
wu good until they came within
shooting distance, but outride of a
few Mattered efforts, their shooting
wu poor.
Varrity controUed play from the
first, and had a good opportunity
to open the score after about ten
minutes, when they wero awarded a
penalty for hands. However, Ko-
zoolln's drive wu several feet wide
of tho post. The Blue and Oold for
wards continued to press, with the
Chlneu replying at Intervals with
rushu Into Varrity territory.
After halt an hour's play, Dave
Todd took the bail up the whig on
a solo rush, and drove in a hard
shot which almost carried the Studenta' goalie through the goal. Todd
followed up to head In the rebound
for Varsity's tally.
The same order of play continued
after the cross-over, with Varrity
forcing the play at aU times, and
the Chlneu trying occasional kick
and run attacks. After twenty minute's play, Munday broke through
the two backs, but wu caUed offside, although apparently in legitimate territory. A further chance of
this nature was not forthcoming, and
the score continued at 1-0.
With tan minutes remaining, a
very questionable foul wu caUed
against a Varrity fuU-back, and

Half Time Score 21-11— Campbell  and
Bardsley Lead Scoring
Playing what was easily ths best game of their career as a
team, Varsity's Senior A Cagers defeated the Victoria Blue
Ribbons 38-24 in the first game of the Provincial Senior A playoffs, held at the V.A.C. gym last Saturday night. This gives the
Blue and Gold outfit a 1 .-point lead to carry into the final game
at Victoria next Saturday night.

the game, th* atudenta tied tho score
at M, and from that point on were
never In danker. By half time they
wore leading 21-11; and after hold-
Ing grimly to the ten-point margin

Rooted Crowd Sees Bori Gaau el Teat
Considered from every angle, the
game provided tho record-breaking
erowd with tho best exhibition ot
tho bounu-and-dribble game soon
here this year. Tho terrifiu pau that
wu maintained throughout the entire game kept tho enthusiastic tans
at a fever pitch of excitement; whUe
the brilliant passing attacks and offensive tactiu displayed by both
teams hold everyonu' attention tiU
the final whistle. "Buck" Yeo and
Tommy Macedo capably handled the
game with authoritative fairness and
Varsity's victory resulted from superior defensive play and fast-
breaking offensive rushu. The capital city lads found the U.B.C. zone
defense hard to penetrate, and
were not dropping in their reputed
percentage of long shots, while their
own defense did not operate fast
enough to break up the scoring
rushu of the students.
UB.C. Takes Lud Early
Although Osborne drew first blood
for Varsity, two baskets and a foul
by Blue Ribbons put them ahead 5-2
after five minutes of play. A foul,
by M. Patrick and baskets by Bardsley and CampbeU tied the score at
Nicholson and Ken Wright aUpped
In a More each, and Bardsley snared
a brace of talUu, to give Varrity an
8-point lead. Little and C. Chapman
found the hoop for Blue Ribbons,
and Osborne made a frw throw to
bring the wore to 15-10.
Half-Time Scon 21-11 for Varsity
Rann Matthison replaced Bardsley
on the Blue and Gold forward line,
and scored nicely a moment later.
Rann had been playing in the spring
play, "AUbl," tho throe nights previous, but need offer no aUbl for his
Saturday porformanu. Foul shots
by Hooker Wright and Chapman ot
Victoria, and a basket and foul by
Pi CampbeU ended the halt U-ll for
tho students.
Thecal poriodbogan at a breath-
taking pace. Both squads turned oa
tho heat and derided to do things,
but the Island-city men found tiie
Blue and Oold squad  too fast  to
Tho Patrick brothers each
two points, and C. Chapman sunk a
foul shot, whUe "Hooker" made a
tally for Varrity, to bring the letter's
load down to 7 points; Dick Wright
came on for Nicholson, and a suend
or two later'PI incraased Varsity's
losd with a smart scoring play.
C. Chapman Off On Fouls
Rou replaced C. Chapman for Victoria, and Bardsley came on for Ken
Wright. Baskets by Osborne and
Dick Wright (Varsity) and M. Patrick and Chapman (Victoria) and a
foul by Campbell, increased the

Nicholson came on for Matthison,
and Dick Wright and M. Patrick exchanged baskets. Bardsley and Osborne beat the opposition for a score
each to put U.B.C. ahead 36-22, with
four minutes to go.
Final Score 38-M
"Hooker"   Wright   replaced   Dick
Wright, and Matthison reUeved Nicholson. Although the students dominated the play decidedly in the lut
four minutu, the inimitable Pi
Campbell wu the only man to More.

considerable amounts of water.
However, In spite of this, the Canadians held a place at ucend for
over a quarter of a mile. At the half
