And so came the day when the
more radical element on
I OBJECT thla year's Students'
Council thought the
time was ripe for mutn raisins of
voices in woeful lamentations. Friend
apRoberts, Junior Member, has at
Itit bitten his teeth into a morsel of
fritf that may not be easily masticated.
You all read ln the last edition of
the Ubyssey that the Campaign Committee had been charged with inefficiency, that Evan considered its policy to be entirely incorrect, its achievements to be virtually worthless,
ita political leanings to be biased,
aad its atudent support to be lacking.
Quite a ponderous list, when you
tome to think of it. But how much
weight ahould be attached to the
wordi of the hero of laat spring who
clamoured for the destruction by Are
ef the effigy of Premier Pattullo ?
Even if the amazingly conscientious Junior Member
AP ELEGY? is an authority that
demands the attention of all and sundry, it is tragic
to soo what he has said. "The Campaign Committee," he claims, "has
not gone about its aims in the right
way." Yet it has accomplished a very
creditable percentage of its stated
_imi, and has done so with tho approval of the Students' Council, and
of the Alma Mater Society in its
Witness the motion proposed on
Ihe fifth day of October, 1938, at the
meeting of tho Alma Mater Society:
",, . . and that tho Alma Mater Society affirm its confidence in the
Committee's work and empower it to
carry on its work as outlined." The
motion, duly moved and seconded,
was carried.
Yet our representative on Council appears eager to act contra to the
wishes of his electorate. Is he a satisfactory representative, or should he
disagree with those whom he repre-
And now to return to the assertions of our impetuous friend at the
Stude nts' Council
meeting on the night
of January 23rd.
Evan charges that the Committee
"has catered to one political party."
But it ia hardly fair, for the Committee merely held conferences with
the Government in power,—In this
case the Liberal Party. It may perhaps be interesting for apRoberts to
know that several members of other
political parties were interested in
Ihe University problem, that some
of them apoke about it in the House,
snd that every member of the Legislative Assembly of B. C. received notice of the difficulties on this Campos.
Next he claims that student interest in the organization has gone. Is
he speaking for himself, or for this
writer. Scotty's interest has not, as
yet, dissipated itself, and that is as
fsr as we shall go. Other students
can, and will, speak for themselves.
With an air of finality our Junior
statesman then stated that the
"Committee was not organized to get
endowment funds for buildings."
Had tho plaintiff read the Constitution of the Students' Campaign Committee which was ratified by Council
on February 21st, 1938 ? This document gives the purpose of th© Committeo as follows:
1. To increase the facilities of the
University through the aid of the
Government grants and endowments.
2, To maintain Unlvorsity accommodation for all young people of Bri-

Editor, Ubyssey,
University of British Columbia.
Dear Madam:
There have been many student campaigns initiated throughout the history of our University, and during or as a result of
these there has been almost Invariably some element of the student body which either being desirous of publicity or having some
particular axe to grind has endeavoured to throw discredit on
the work that has been done by those in charge of the campaigns.
It had been a great source of satisfaction to the graduate
body of the University up to last week at least that the undergraduates had ln this particular campaign comported themselves
in a sane and farslghted manner with the result that the general
publio of this Province has greater sympathy with the problems
and needs of this Institution than lt has ever had before. Needless to say then It was rather disturbing for us aa graduates to
note In last Friday's issue of the Ubyssey that the more Impetuous
( and Irresponsible elements of the Undergraduate body were again
endeavouring to attach a stigma where lt is ill-deserved.
The Alumni happen to be in a position to know that a good
many of the benefits accruing from the work of the campaign
committee during the past year may not become apparent for
tome time to come. We refer to the good will which has been
built up for the University by reason of the Intensive press and
radio campaign sponsored by this Oommittee during the past
year and the eminently sensible attitude heretofore adopted by
the student body as a whole. This sympathy on the part of the
public has never been as strong as it is now. Further than that
there never has been as great mutual understanding and cooperation between the Board of Governors and the students as
there Is at the present time and this has been mainly through
tho efforts of the Campaign Committee which has been anxious
that the University should appear united ln its demands on the
people and the government of this Province in particular. As a
result of this farslghted policy on the part of the Committee the
relationships between the University and the Government of this
Province are on the best footing that they have been for many
years and the Government has shown that it has a full appreciation of our problems by going so far as to obtain authorization
from the Legislature to borrow $350,000 for the construction of
'buildings. These aro achievements which aro altogether apart
from those which have shown themselves ln more tangible form.
Wo refer to the removal of limitation, tho commencement of tlmo
table revision, and the assurance and backing given to the plans
for the Brock Memorial and Preventive Medicine Buildings by
the Government without which support neither, of the latter plans
could possibly have been realized. In view of these can anyone
honestly aay that nothing has been done? If so, the Alumni take
Rome was not built In a day. The Committee admits that its
work is not yet completed—lt may take another year but that
does not mean that the members of the Committee are not doing
their utmost in the advancement of the welfare of the University
merely because they have had not had a Publicity Manager to
advertise their efforts to the students. The Innumerable hours and
the unlimited amount ot energy expended by the members of the
Committee in advancing the welfare of the University in the best
way they knew how have borne fruit, and it ill behooves any
section of student opinion, which happens to be misinformed on
the facts and issues Involved to throw discredit on the work of
the Campaign Oommittee without offering some constructive
criticism. We as Alumni representatives deprecate any such attitude and feel sure that this cannot be the view ot the more levelheaded and farslghted element of the Student Body. We all must
look to the future aa well as to the present. We thank you for
giving us the opportunity of expressing our views in this matter.

No Invasion Unless
Enough Tickets Sold
Editor's Notet This letter was written by Students' Council with the
purpose ln mind of making it perfectly clear to the student body that
the motion at preaent tabled on their
minute books was put befofe Council
by one member.
There has been no vote taken on
the motion and the Council as a
whole have never expressed their
opinion on the matter.
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Certain statements emanating from
a Students' Council meeting regarding the Student Campaign Committee were made ln the Ubyssey.
Students' Council would like to
make lt clear that such comments do
not represent the opinions of that
body as a whole, and that while discussion was held regarding Campaign
Issues there was no expression of lack
of confidence ln the personnel or operations of the committee.

Decorated Buses For U.B.C. Invasion
of Provincial Morgue
v ->
"Hail the Conquering Hero Comes" will sound through the.
sheltered harbour of Victoria as the invasion boat docks and hundreds of University of British Columbia students will swoop into
the capital for its hostages and glory.
Blue and gold lapel decorations lwill mark the friend from
foe, while decorated buses will transport the invaders from dock
to destination. Pep yells and Varsity songs will resound over thq
island city.
There are only about three hundred and. fifty tickets left
and these will be sold at the foot of the caf. stairs. The boat cannot be chartered until threo hundred tickets are actually bought.
Bight o'clock Saturday morning and
everybody down on O.FJl.'s Princess
Norah for a whole day of fun, feasting and frivolity I
Evan apRoberts, in charge of arrangements, has promised an Invasion tbat will wake sleepy Viotorla
oat of Its lata Saturday snooze.
Varsity   studenU   will    put   their
alarm clocks baok an hour earlier so
that they will be on time for the boat
which leaves Vanoouver at 8 a_n. and
will disembark from their five-piece
orchestra—accompanied    voyage    at
1.30 ln Victoria.
At the docks buses will be waiting
to convey tho invaders to their flrst
rendezvous, the rugby games at Macdonald Park.
Tlie game between Varsity's second division and Victoria College will
start first and soon after the McKechnie Cup tilt between UB.C. and
Victoria Rep., the highpoint of the
U.B.C.'s hopes are high. Strat
Legatt says, "After a victory like
last Saturday's we certainly should
Meanwhile Varsity's Senior Women's Grass-Hockey team will have
been met by taxis and taken to Victoria High School field. Here they
will play Victoria Ladles at 1,45.
At 4.30 the program follows through
with a tea dance 'with, Victoria's
beautiful Empress Hotel for Its setting.
"That wlU be 50 cents If you just
want to eat," says apRoberts, "and
an additional SO cents If you care
to work it off by dancing.**    '
Varsity  Invaders will  dine   where
they choose if they choose to dine.
It is said that none of the restaurants are big enough to house all the
invaders at once.
At 6.40 students will be taken by
bus, which is free, to the basketball
game between Victoria Dominoes and
Varsity senior A's, at Viotorla High,
Coaeh Van Vliet remarked that
the University team was very anxious to prove Its strength because
of the beating it took in ita eon-
test with the Victoria team last
Ootober. ,
At that time the team had had
,onJy two practises before going over
and furthermore was composed partly of test players.
Vanity   basketballers  will   suffer
their  biggest  handicap in  the  absence of Alec Lucas who is recuperating from an Injured back.
The   basketball   game   will   be   the
last feature of the program and the
invaders will return home by the nine
o'clock boat with their Journey lightened by three hours of dancing with
music  and a hoped-for  moon.
Strains of Hall U.B.O. played by
the Varsity Band will fill the air on
the way over to Victoria on the annual Invasion.
Under the direction of Arthur W.
Delamont the band will accompany
the  several  hundred  Varsity  students, playing on the boat and during the day at the games.
Faculty  members going on the Invasion in official capacity are Dr. and
Mrs. H. Warren, Miss Barbara Robertson, and Mr. and Mrs. Maury Van
Victoria is preparing to resist
another onslaught from the U.
B. C. campus and has made
plans to avenge the ignominious
defeats suffered last year at the
hands of the Varsity invaders.
(Victoria College)—Batten down the
hatches men, the enemy's boarding
us. In other words the annual Invasion is ln the off Ing.
Last year tbe invaders took away
the goal posts  which ls a blot on
the  escutcheon  of  this  Institution.
We will be avenged.
Last year the invaders ripped the
College  crest  into  little   pieces.     We
will  be avenged.
This year the Plains of Macdonald
will be stained with the gore of both
rugby teams. Tho College Invasion
Cheering Squad confidentially expects to drown out the rival squad
supplied by Varsity.
To add to the festive spirit the
Council Is supplying penants for
the occasion.
.Len Acre's orchestra and the Empress Hotel will provide the setting for
a Tea Dance which- will be oozing
with College spirit.
A  bang-up baaketball  game will
be held In tbe   evening, and   the
Varsity students wlU leave at 9 p.m.
or thereabouts;   slightly  the worae
for wear, but, doubtless happy."
According to an editorial in a Victoria College publication, unfavorable
results wUl be the fate of UJ9.C.
"This year the Varsity Invasion will
be a decisive set-back for U.B.C. We
are going all the way out on a limb,
to say that It will be a very humble
and meek lot of U.B. Cissies that return to Vancouver. Especially if they
touch our goal posts."
To start enthusiasm bubbling and
billowing for the Invasion a pep-meet
will be held In the Auditorium Wednesday noon.
The Varsity Band will play, songs
and yells will be sung and yelled.
A program of skits comprising the
utmost   ln   dramatic   ability   wUl   be
A bevy of beautiful rugby players, the members of the   U.B.C. team,
will   be   introduced   one   after   the
other to their fond public.
Five pep leaders have been trained
and selected for the annual invasion
and will be on rehearsal at the pep
meet.   Those selected are Ken Shaw,
Frank Proud, Russ Palmer, Bob Gaul
and Alan Hamilton.
Students may buy their tickets at
the foot of the caf stairs every day
this week at noon. However, these
tickets must be exchanged for the
regular passage forms at the C.P.R.
steamships ticket office before boarding the boat.

U. B. C. is ahead of the rest of
Canada ln its work on the establishment of co-operative enterprises, declared the Rev. J. D. McDonald, ln his
address to the Vancouver Institute ln
the Auditorium, on Saturday evening.
Rev. MacDonald, the Nova Scotlan
expert on co-operatives, outlined the
beginning of the cooperative movement in Nova Scotia, where it started
ln the form ot study groups organized by the university.
From this origin, the movement
spread to the form of organized cooperatives, under which appeared cooperative stores along lines of production, which included flsh and other
Later, tha system was enlarged
to Include medlelne snd housing.
A. C. Phillips, president ot the
North Arm Trollers' Association,
caused a vote ot thanks to be moved
to Rev. MacDonald ,on behalf of the
sixty-odd students who attended the
course on, fishermen's co-operatives,
which bas been given by the University Department of Extension during the last week.

Although the accusations made against the Campaign Committee will have, and have had, tho beneficial result of stirring the
group to new* efforts, they nro for tho most part unfortunate in
their effects. They have placed a germ of doubt in the minds of
the student body as to whether the Campaign Committee was as
effective in their year's work ns they had been given tho credit for.
But any one who thinks seriously enough on tho matter to
feel this doubt must also think seriously enough to realize the
accusations are probably quite unfounded. In the flrst placo they
arc the opinions of only one man out of tlio 2,500 who nttend uni-
versity. They have, throughout a period of ono week, never been
backed by facts. The man making thoso accusations may have
some reason for not presenting his facts—we certainly must give
him credit for any such possible reason. Hut it seems little likely
that after a whole week of requests for factual backing he has
presented none. Rather he has done nothing to retract accusations because he could not prove them.
It seems likewise evident that few, if any, .other members of
the Alma Mater Society will agree with the sole accuser. Muny
"undergraduates and graduates, concerned, have been qxiick to
oppose him.    .
It would seem evident from tho development of the situation that the whole affair is a creation of one recalcitrant student.
It is unfortunate that this student should have been in such a position that weight could- be attached to his statements. Undpr tho
circumstances it is necessary that council look fully into tho matter; in fact council desires to look into the matter for their own
satisfaction. •
Therefore, although some ill-effects cannot help but ensue,
those concerned can benefit tho entire student body by taking the
utmost advantage of the beneficial results which are also evident.
Every year tho matter of noise in the library reading rooms
and stacks must be brought to tho attention of the students and
every year, with the accommodation becoming less adequate, the
matter is more important.
Very often the date you were on the night before would be
of tremendous interest to your friend in tho next seat. But do
Ttncmber how unpleasant it is to hear such a discussion when you
happen to be in a hurry to finish, an essay yourself and "simply
must not be disturbed. If you have a long story to tell you can
<iuite easily take your friend down to the big rest rooms in the
Imscment and discuss the matter there.
An even more annoying matter is the noise in tho stacks.
University students are no longer growing boys and girls and
there is no reason why their tread should be so heavy and uncontrolled. Tho sound of some men walking nlong is like the operation of a pile driver. The weight, their foot, is raised and allowed
to fall with the force of gravity until it contacts the ground with
s loud and unpleasant sound. Tho woman's steps are quito different but none the less disturbing. They pound their tows against
the ground with the sharp staccato of a typewriter or a riveting
If you inhabit the stacks we would strongly recommend that
you use discretion when walking about. In the interests of tho
honors students who depend on the peace of tho lower recesses of
the library, pickup your feet and set them down gently.

Napoleon moved a resolution reading: "Whereas tho Campaign Committee has achieved as much as is
possible bo it resolved that this committee be dissolved and a letter of
appreciation  sent to  each member."
It Is clear that tho aims of the
Committeo as stated in
WISDOM their Constitution which,
we repeat, has tho approval of tho Students' Council, have
not all been achieved. Would it bo
sane to leave these unottained desires hanging in tho air? Would it
be wise to leave tho remainder of
tho "pressure work" to the Board of
Governors alone? In fact, would it
be sensible to destroy all that a
hard working Committee hos built
up for us during a difficult year?
Scotty is exasperated to think that
a member of our Council has so little
foresight as to make such blundering suggestions, and so little finesse
as to practically nullify the confidence of the student body in a very
capable and diplomatic Committee
which has done more for this University than any Committee for
many long years.

It was our pleasure to be one of
the few to see the performance given
by the Film Society last Friday
Without fear of contradiction we
may say that this showing which included a silent picture entitled
"Gold", a sound recording of one of
Major Bowes' Amateur Hours, and
the Greenland epic, "The Wedding of
Palo," was one of the most interesting that Dick Jarvis has ever presented.
At least to us it was.
As we sat through tho showing of
"Gold" we could not help but think
of the benefits of the screen as we
know it today.
Here before our eyes in a short
time the actual process of the mining, the refining, the shaping of gold
was accomplished.
We obtained as much enjoyment
and knowledge as we might have got
had we went through a mine, the refinery, the mill; had we actually
watched the goldsmith as he hammered out his sheets, engraved his
designs and made his gold caps.
But  one  event   in   particular  impressed us the most.
This was the particular brand of
humor evinced by those students who
watched the picture.
It may have been our imagination.
But we thought that we heard a
mocking laugh as the picture showed
the miners going down the shaft clad
in their rough clothes, unshaven and
As we heard that laugh we felt a
sudden burst of pity. Pity for the
students who have not yet been fortunate to work among a group of
men who aro men and not a bunch
of stuffed shirts filled with a false
ond egotistical sense of their own
Yes, pity for those students who
thought the appearance of a miner
was an incitement to ridicule. '
And wo wondered just what kind
of students these were who so blatantly displayed their ignorance of
life, reality, and of work. We wondered if ever nny of tho laughing
students had over experienced that
feeling which comes over a man
when he knows that ho is doing a
job that he likes nnd doing it well.
To us it seemed that these miners
fchowed that feeling as they were going to work, as they were drilling
and blasting. •
But maybe we have no sense of
If that was humor that was missed
by us then we hope that we never
become contaminated with that
We prefer a less subtle brand.
The second reason that we found
Dick Jarvis's presentation interesting was that because wo found that
there were people on Greenland; and
that it was a country that was capable of supporting life.
We were green concerning the
qualities of Greenland until we saw
that film, "The Wedding of Palo,"
As we sat and watched ideas came
to us. There was a land, unexplored,
undeveloped and unexploitod. Hero
wero peoples unmarred by the stigma of a false civilization and its
false concepts and teachings; peoples
who lived according to nature and
nature's emotions and not according
to a tnechanical science and the
mechanical emotions created by the
readings of Freud, Adler, Jung, Watson and the modern crop of pseudo
or bootleg psychologists.
There was a simplicity that was
amazing. Some students who saw
the same film might contradict mo
and say a simplicity that was pitying.
But there were people unconcerned
with Hitler, the Rome-Berlin axis,
the settling of Vancouver's vice
question, WPA or other associated
prominent topics of discussion.
And tho simplicity of these Green-
landers is pitying because we ourselves cannot ever roach that state
of simplicity which it is evident is
'  Po you follow us?
We hope that the Film Society will
continue to show such an educational
triple bill as they did last Friday

It's A Fact!
Tbat U.B.C. Students Spend
One Million Dollars
Per Year
There are two reasons why no one knows it:
(1) Students don't mention the faot they attend
University when buying.
(2) The purchasing power is not felt because it is
too thinly spread over the wide range of commercial
houses in Vancouver.
The Ubyssey is carrying the advertisements of certain firms who WANT University business. They
help to support the University paper with the
money they spend. With our tremendous buying
power we could make University goodwill the most
coveted prize of Vancouver business.
You are urged to spend your money with Ubyssey
advertisers and to mention the fact that you "saw
it in the Ubyssey." Tuesday, January 31, 1939

Chang Suey was there; he'd brought Mrs. C.S.;
And those were the Dirty Nine with hint, I guess—
"There is ro'om for us all," sang the discordant choir,
. "So everyone get behind Carsize McMirel"
So we "Followed the Birds" as they swooped in the wind,
(Being careful to stay fust a little behind)
And though red-sweatered boys called the swell 'scientific'
Some Aggie landlubbers helped swell the Pacific,
We arrived at the Anglophile Mecca round noon hour,
—Where gossip is limited to "Punch," cricket, "Poona,"
—Where jolly old tea Is what everything stops faw
-—B.C.'s comatose capital, sleepy Victoriawl
So this was the place which was going to beat use
A torpid town's tcam of relaxed lotos eaters-
Why, even the harbour was yawning to greet us!
At the pier was the Varsity's hokum factotum
Garrett; chanting "$l DOWN BUYS YOU YAW TOTEM I"
Andf^—dash it all!—things are pronounced most peculiaw—
Our buggage was "laggage." Do they just try to fool yah?
Capitolians use "betrol" or "spirits" for gas,
And American "dope" becomes, anglicized, "ass."
There were women in tweeds, men in ancient straw hats,
And the "Johnnies," (or "blighters") were all wearing spats!
And the people?—just Colonels and nuts, in their shells—
"Why don't you come out?" the Varsity yells;
And candidly, fellows, the streets were deserted,
'L'ike a tag day in Aberdeen" somebody blurted.

Library call slips have been changed and now must bo filled out more
completely with name, address and
phone number of the student.
Thla change Is for the benefit of
the  users of the   library and  also
for the facilitation of the records of
the librarians, states Mr. John Ridington, Librarian.  Out of the twenty-three universities In Canada, the
library service at U.B.C. Is the best,
he continued.
Previously students have neglected
to put their names on the slips, and
for   numbers   have   used   everything
from   their "street   addresses,   their
girl  friends'  phone numbers,  to tbo
size ln  boots  that they wear.
No new rulos have beon dovlsed,
because the students don't keep the

The Dirty Nine and Oberon
Stench, that stumble in the march of
evolution, were trapped in the grisly,
underground workshop of the fiend,
Chang Suey. All was darkness, except for the ruddy glow cast upon
the features of Stewin' Wobllnson
by the blast furnace operating underneath his nose.
The Dirty Nine waited breathlessly as their leader, one Carslse Mc-
Mire, felt his way around tho room
in a desperate search for some means
of escape. Then, suddenly, he gave
u wild cheer.
"I've found something, men!" he
yelled excitedly, "I've found something!"
But at the same Instant, the lab
resounded   with   the   sound   of   a
crisp slap, which was followed by
a yelp of pain.
"I suggest that you reserve your
passes for the football field, Mr. McMirel" cried Miss Petman, preparing
to follow up her advantage with a
volley of those short, left jabs for
which she is so justly famous.
Miss Lean Storky peered through
the darkness to note carefully the Joe
Louis shuffle employed by Miss Pet-
man as she sparred a few vicious
rounds with a helpless Erlenmeyer
The rest of the Dirty Nine took
unfair advantage of the situation
by   crowding   around   Carsize   to

leave so soon!"
With his words, the floor parted
in the middle, and the Dirty Nine,
Mr. Hedequick and Oberon Stench
tumbled into the cold blackness, into
a rushing underground river.
Mr. Hedgequlck screamed with
horror as he got a taste of the
water, and swam with powerful
strokes to the nearest bank. Oberon Stench was carried out to sea,
where he was picked up by two
Scotch fishermen.

"Look!" he screamed.
A horrible red glow was floating
towards the group, swaying from
side to side, and coming closer and
closer. Men screamed and women
cursed in the mad scramble to get
out of the way of thla ruddy phantom.
But Slap Boberts, rooted to the.
spot, could only stick out his hand
to fend off the terrible thing.   For
a moment there was dead silence,
as the glow stopped moving. Then
a    well - lacquered     voice    broke
through the gloom.
"Will you kindly remove your digits from my proboscis, sonny?" hiccoughed Mr. Hcdgequick indignantly,
"before I put a bun around 'em and

"Ah! A handburger!" he mumbled,
as a burp-sprinkled afterthought.

Thero was a brief pause for station identification, then, for the second tlmo that evening, for a sort of
echo encore, tho sound of a ringing

chased by a yelp of pain.

Miss  I'ctman,  "but  I  must  Insist

Oberon sank heavily by the stern,
with a very slight loss of life.
As soon as the Dirty Nine struck
the water, all clambered aboard Car-
size for the trip downstream.
For a whilo, they kept up thoir
spirits by singing "Old Man River"

but, suddenly, they were drawn into
a dark tunnel and sucked upwards

In   one   of  those  wandering  and
fruitless Caf discussions we* came to
the conclusion that the mentality of
the student body was degenerating.
It   was   most   disillusioning   to
realise that I was a member of a
vanishing race.   For days I brooded sadly on it until I cams upon
the following, written by a student
of 1034.
If this is an example of the average intelligence, of tho time, surely
there is hope for us.
"Once upon a time there were three
monks. Having shown various methods of showing their austerity, they
finally decided to become hermits and
furthermore to take a vow of silenoe,
using only a sort of sign language.
Every five years they would leave
their mountain cave to come down to
the town for supplies.
On one of these trips about ten
years after thalr tow, they saw a
circus that boasted as Its main attraction a dancing horse. Tho thro*
monks saw and returned to their
cave.   '
One of the three began to get thin
and nervous with great dark circles
under his eyes.    When, about three
years later he was wasted away to a
mere shadow' of his former self, he
could not withstand the strain any
longer  and   blurted  out.     "My,   but
that horso could dance!"
All went well for a month or two
When another of tho three began to
become Irritable. Ho slowly lost
weight and could scarcely use the
sign language his hands shook so.
After   a   period   of   about   four
years had elapsed he gave a deep
sigh    of   surrender   and    replied.
"You're right, that horse COULD
Tho third monk who  had  horoto-
foro been tho happiest of the three
new began to look worried.    He began to perform his work in a listless
fashion.   He too lost weight.
One day about six years later he
suddenly flew into a rage and began
to pack ,up his clothes. This startled
tho other two into Bpeech. "What's
wrong?" "Where are you going?"
"I'm going home!" he answered
surlily. "I'm sick of all this damn
chatter about horses."
However, there were a few students who really tried to raise the intellectual standard of their fellows
as is shown by the following History
of English Literature:
"In 1060, the one date which you
are likely to remember, the English
defied the Normans  (Hurrah!)  and
refused William as king but he came
across,   and   when   Harold   saw   his
splendour, it knocked his eye out.
Some  people attributed  this  to
an arrow, but this is because of the
faulty translations and colloquialisms of the day.
"The Conquest had one regrettable
consequence.     Hereward   the   Wake,
defied  William, and  his  deeds have
subsquently   given   rise   to   another
flood of literature.
"One day not long after the conquest, the people woke up to find
that they were talking a language
almost like English. So the language
of this period is colled Middle English, because this discovery was made
in the middle of the night.
"Some time before this period, a
monk called Thomas a Becket had
become involved in a little controversy with the king.
It happened at this time that the
king  was  fermenting  beer  and  it
Down in tbe deep shadows of the

group that ls not often hard about—
the orchestra.
Without tbls group tbe production
of tbe opera oould hardly be a- success. It forms the background and
the setting, and produces many of
the humorous effects and-the excitement at dramatlo* moments.

At Joan's  left will  be the  first

McDonnel, and   Bernard  Shlpton.
Tbey are tbe ones who play most
of the high notes, wbo lead up ln a
flourish to a new song, and wbo play
the lovely melodies while tbe choirs
are singing.
Then don't forget tbe second fiddlers. Alfred Ballard, Bill Osborne,
and Jack Margeson add harmony to
the melodies of the flrst violinists.

Tuesday, January 31, 1931
Just about' the time when the
league-leaders of the V. and D. division begin to assume their annual
cockiness, there's always one team
ready to pull them down a peg or
two. Yea, sir, you're right again, tbe
Thunderbird soccermen crashed the
upset column again In a big way Saturday by downing tha powerful West.
Vancouver outfit 4-2 in a fast and
furious contest.
It was the fighting Jim Robinson
and the sbarpsbootlng Ben Herd who
snapped out of a streak of rather
lethargic performances to lead tbe
collegians to tbelr victory.
Herd tallied tbe first two Varsity
counters, the flrat the opening marker of tbe game, and the second after
Blair Edwards had given West Van.
a 2 1 loud which thoy hold at half-
Robinson was a tower of strength
throughout and refused to take a step
backward as time and again he powered his way through baffled West
Van  defenders.
Varsity went ahead again about
half way through tbo final period
when Irish let go a long shot from
the right, which trickled into the
corner.much to everyone's surprise.
Holding on desperately to their load,
tho campusmen wero hard put to repulse the raids of the Wost-slders
who saw tholr chances of undisputed
leadership gradually vanishing.
Some leftwing pioneering by Ben
Herd set the stage for the fourth and
last Blue and Oold marker which

Freshman, and to our mind probably
the most promising Blue and Oold
soccerite today, paging Fred Sasaki,
a great little worker, every inch a
emulating the example of their big
brethren, the U.B.C. ruggers sliced
off a sizeable - chunk of glory tor
themselves by downing the North
Shore All Blacks Saturday to the
tune bf a 14-12 count.
Historically, or something, the
game was of nd import, but lt did
ehow thi t the Ubeecees have amassed among their crew a fighting bunch
of ruggers.
Similar to the Stadium encounter,
it was the scrum that provided most
of the scoring'punch and the drive.
Ian Richards, dynamic fly half, started tbe studes off to a fine start by
running through the entire All-Black
team in the opening minutes of battle. George Scbuthe converted to
give the Blue and Qold a lead never
relinquished. Doug Wilson, wing forward, added another three points before half time, which ended 8-3.
After the interval both teams really
began to put on the pressure with
points coming fast and frequent.
Schittho battled his way across the
All Black strip for the third U.B.C.
try followed shortly after by a fine
forward rush with Evan Davies on
the  credit receiving end.
Student Scrum Paves Way     BASKETEERS*
For Thrilling 8-3 Victory titi v HOPES
Under perfect weather conditions and before a good-sized, enthusiastic crowd, A. B. Corey's Thunderbird ruggormen come within a Btep of successfully defending the Miller Cup Saturday when
they dofeated Vancouver Rowing Club 8-3 in a stirring battle on
the Varsity Stadium.
Tho win loaves the big Blue nnd Gold machine almost a shoo-in
for their fifth trophy, although some say that the U.B.C. XV might
provide a stumbling block not easily surmountable.
An injury to Tommy Fraser, cool-thinking Red and White fullback, in the first minute of play, caused tho Rowers to go through
the remaining part of the tilt shorthnnded, a fact which might possibly have changed the complexion of tho game.
In fairness to the victorious Thunderbirds, however, it should
be said that more spirit, tackling ability and general drive was evidenced Saturday than in any one of their contests before Christmas.
A Leggat cross kick which Anally
ended up reposing beneath Waddy
Robertson on the payoff side of the
Rowing Club lines gave the students
an early lead, which was increased
when Ted Mchee kicked a clever

passed to Tremblay for the score

With play swinging Irresponsibly
from end to end, the Rowers cut the
Varsity lend almost In half after 15
minutes when a cleverly executed
cross-kick by Bill Igoe, Red and
White five-eighths, set tho stage for
the only Rowing Club score. Mercer's kick for the extra points failed
and the rest ot tho game was featured by thrilling ond-to-ond  surges.
For Varsity, the scrum wns more
offlclent than before thla season,
Stradlottl ond Mason proving to be a
veritable battering-ram In the second
row. Mattu and Harmer showed up
well, but both of them were Inclined

especially considering the ability ot

In the back division. Bird was brilliant on occasions, his touch finding
being invariably effective, while the
three also turned in good performances.
After Just about one of tbe dullest
exhibitions of second-rate shinny in
the history of hockey last Friday
night at the Forum in which the U.
B. C. beat Washington U. by a 2-0
count. Varsity's puckmen trickle over
to New Westminster tonight to take
on tbe Air Force.
With four tough games left on their
schedule the Blue and Oold aggregation of skaters can Just slip Into
second place if they win all of them.
Dumonts are in second place now,
but Varsity can beat them out of
place money by one point if the students .come through.
It was a story of the Thunderbirds
nearly getting down on their bended
knees to get the invading Huskies to
play hockey last Friday at the Forum, as the visitors put on a sit-down
show that would put the C.I.O. to
shame. Ed Benson in the Varsity net
picked up his flrst shutout of the
season by touching the puck a total
of six times.
Charlie Guignet marked up both
counters on passes from Dier and BUI
Kapak. None of the forwards seemed
to be able to control a bounding puck,
and the goal-tending ability of the
visitor's' custodian shattered any
hopes of the winners to fatten their
scoring averages.
Jack McArthur and Angl Provan-
zano are still out of the game and
will not make the little trip to Now
Westminster  tonight.

By virtue of a close 1-1 draw with
a determined Britannia Grads eleven,
the U.B.C. hockeyists maintained
their one point lead over the third
place Orads. This game really gives
the collegians the right to meet General America, with whom they drew
4-all last week, In the Lower Mainland finals, as the remaining league
games this spring should be a walkover for the rampaging co-eds.
Britannia, out to win at any costs,
forced the play in the flrst few minutes of tbe game, but the Blue and
Oold players soon grabbed the lead
with a goal by Faye Burnham. Their
superb defense held the Grads till
five minutes from time when a goal
by Myrtle Elpper tied tho game.
Again playing two short, the plucky
Varsity eleven lost out to Grandview
Grads 6-0. The good work of goalie
Peggy Crowe saved the co-eds from
being   completely  overwhelmed.
Tomorrow ' the two vftrsity teams
meet ln a regular league fixture at
3:46 on the University field. Both
teams will be playing short and the
game should be a merry mtx-up.
Saturday the U.B.C, eleven will
travel to Victoria with the Invasion
to play the Victoria Ladles. Last
year tho "Ladles" won 4-1 in the mud
pond they deign to call a hockey
field; but with an idea of the technique required for such a pitch, and

bis eye, Maury Van Vliet confessed
to me yesterday in his little cubbyhole offlce in tbe gym tbat Varsity
would have a swell chance to make
the inter-city basketball playoffs . . .
in 1940.
At present tbe team is down in
ourth place and the schedule from
here in is a heart-breaker. Coupled
with that, Alec Lucas, tbe spear point
of the Varsity offense, is out of the
line-up with an injured back, and it is
indefinite when be will be in shape
to play again. So the situation is
Things wouldn't be in such a aad
stato it the boys hadn't suddenly col-
, lapsed In Wostmlnstor on Friday nnd
allowed tho Arinnncs to bump them
51-37. Thero aro numerous stories
going around explaining this tragedy,
but the most popular feeling is that
the boys were upset by the fact that
Helen Stephens and her Olympic Co-
Eds were on tho samo bill.
However, I have It from a reliable
source that the floor was so slippery
that tho fast-moving Varsity offense
could not got settled. On tho other
hand tho slow, methodical Westminster  team   wero   In   their element.
Alec  Lucas was out of tho Varsity
lineup   nnd   that  ls   sufllclent   to   ex
plain  the   reason  why  Varsity  failed
to sink a bIiikIo rebound.
Even a strango slippery floor failed
to stop Captain Rann Matthison, how-
over, but this 10 points failed to do
the Job of sinking the Adanacs who
were playing 20 points over their
usual standard.
Wednesday the hoopers start their
desperate bid against Westerns in the
gym ln what may prove to be the
deciding factor in this year's play-off
bid. This game Is the replay ot the
unfortunate mix-up that occurred
three weeks ago when one of our
local scholars got balled up scoring
the game and caused the match to
be thrown out.
Had Varsity won that match, and
tt looked at the time that she had,
her chances for the league title would
have been vory bright. Now with
Lucas out of the line-up and tbe fact
that the Western are reported in the
throes of a terrific training grind, the
prospects of a Blue and Gold victory
aro very, very slim.
Saturday tho boys travel to Victoria to play Dominoes and on Monday they entertain St. Martins College from Lacey, Washington, in the

Scrum down! . . . The rugby
"knock-out" tourney will start next
week. It's always nice to have a bit
ot wind, especially when the going
gets tough. Clans .reps., get your
players out for practices this week!
The Frosh rugby team gained
sweet revenge over the surprised
Rowing Club fifteen by slapping on a
decisive 16-0 whitewash Saturday. In
their previous set-to the Rowers had
won out 13-9.
The upper field battle was plenty
rough, and near the end, one Mr.
Bishop (yes, the North Shore Canadian footballer) lived up to his reputation and was tossed off for slugging too often in too many directions.
However, the flghtin' Frosh Just
wouldn't give ground, getting a try
ln the flrst stanza and completing the
rout with three more after the half.
The Freshmen now top the second
half schedule with two straight wins.
