Six Hundred See Co-eds Model
At H. B. Co.
Renaissance and Grecian were the
two main influences which predominated in the new fall styles displayed
at the fashion show in the Georgian
Tea Room of the Hudson's Bay Company on Wednesday. Some six hundred and fifty guests attended the
show which was a great success.
Dresses from the Renaissance period ' featured the slender waist line
and slightly flared skirt. Metallic
cloth and the bright reds, greens,
blues, and purples of that era were
in evidence. Adopted from the Grecian mode was the draped effect in
some gowns, with fullness In front
and back.
For skiing enthusiasts a particularly striking outfit was with sweater
top of heavy wool in brown and
beige tones and with jabot collar.
An attractive three-piece suit consisted of gored skirt, a short jacket
buttoning up the front with natural
colored wooden buttons, and jabot
collar. Worn over this was a swagger coat with badger collar. A rust
colored suede hat completed this ensemble which was w>rn by Mary de
Smart among the day-time frocks
was thc black novelty crepe modeled
by Betty MeNealy, which carried out
a touch of the Renaissance in its
flared skirt. Introduced in the vestee
was the new Galyak in black.
Very chic in coats was the "Drum
Major Style" in navy cloth with
sauaje shoulders, fitted waltfline,,.and
slightly flared skirt. .The striking
note in this coat, modeled by Lulu
Russell, was the standup collar of grey
Newest among the dinner gowns
was the crushed velvet in parma violet, cut on slender lines. This was
modeled by Mary de Pencier.
Decidedly Renaissance was one
stunning evening dress in metallic
cloth, worn by Lulu Russell. A combination of wine, green and silver
showed in the pattern of wide stripes.
All fullness was sheered into the sides
and huge flowers adorned the high
neckline in front.
Of stark simplicity were the very
new monk's wraps featured at the
end of the show. Outstanding was a
plain black velvet cape and hood
worn by Hilda Wood.
The Hudson's Bay Company and
the W.U.S., in collaboration, are responsible for making the affair so
highly successful. Also contributing to
the success were the eight attractive
co-ed mannequins, Blossom Tucky, Jo
Dickie, Eleanor Leith, Hilda Wood,
Jo Henning, Lulu Russell, Betty Mc-
Neely and Mary de Pencier.
S.CM. Speaker
Favors System
Of Democracy
"The Democratic order is the only
order that a self-respecting man can
abide by, and is the only order that
is consistent with the Christian doctrine," stated Dr. Richard Roberts,
Moderator of the United Church oi
Canada, whan he spoke on Tuesday
noon in Arts 100.
Scientifically building up every step
of his discourse, he demonstrated thai
the history of Democracy and of
Christianity have been linked together ItlroughoUt their development.
"The problem before us today is to
achieve a social order ln which the
individual is not subjected to the
group and the group is not exploited
by the individual," stated the speaker.
The Moderator illustrated his point
by citing forms of government
throughout the world; for example, In
Russia today, there has arisen a social
order in which the individual is subjected to the group.
In the present order there is a lack
of moral co-operation between the
man and the state. The slogan of democracy: "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," has never been true. Democracy has had some Liberty, no Equality, and little Fraternity. Corresponding to these, Christianity has three
basic virtues: there must be a revival
of living, dynamic Christianity before
there can be a revived Democracy.
The keynote of the whole address
was brought out in his closing words:
"To put oneself in the second person
is the whole significance of life;
when men endeavour to serve rather
than to be served then, and then
alone will the ideal community be
Weir To Address
Institute Saturday
The speaker for the weekly lecture
of the Vancouver Institute, to be held
in the Auditorium of the University
at 8:15 on Saturday evening, will be
the Honorable George M. Weir, Provincial Secretary and Minister of Education. He will lecture on "Some
Social Trends"—a topic that will permit a general discussion of plans and
policies in connection with Health,
Unemployment Insurance, and allied
Originally planned for the Institute's program of last year, Dr. Weir's
address had to be postponed because
of the necessity of his attending an
inter-Provincial conference at Ottawa.
Nothing has been lost, but probably
a good deal gained, by the delay, for
the reason that whatever plans were
then made have been so modified by
time and circumstance as to be nearer practical realization.
Dr. Weir brings to the subjects he
will discuss the knowledge of a specialist, as well as the authority of a
member of the Provincial Government, He spent a year in investigating nursing as a profession in Canada, and his report not only exhaustively reviews existing conditions,
but sets standards for present practice, and future attainment. With all
those aspects of Health and Education
which have to do with childhood and
adolescence, Dr. Weir has long been
thoroughly familiar by reason of his

Phrateres Plan
Graduate Club
The graduate members of Phrateres
are busily engaged in plans for the
formation of an Alumnae Club. An
organization meeting will be held
next Monday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. at
the home of Clare Brown, 6081 Marguerite.
"We hope that an Alumnae Chapter
will carry the friendliness of Phrateres into gradaute life and help to
keep the members in touch with
campus activities," said Clare Brown,
founder of the sisterhood at the University.
"All graduates will be welcomed,
whethor they were able to join Phrateres in their Varsity career or not,
in addition to past members who
were on the campus for only a year
or two."
"The Alumnae Club will probably
follow the example of the undergraduate chapters in carrying out a
project to raise money for Dean Bol-
lert.'s Bursary Fund, although other
interesting program suggestions are
being considered."
Some of those taking an active interest in the Alumnae Chapter are:
Mary McGeer. past president of Phrateres; Molly Root, Initiation Chairman of last year; and Dorothy McRae,
vice-president of Arts '35.
It is to be greatly regretted that the Board of Governors
of the University at its last regular meeting on Monday night
apparently was not able to understand and appreciate the needs
of the students at the college.
Before the decision of the meeting was announced, thi
students had hoped for the official appointment of a directo:
of physical education and athletics on the campus.
In the past, nothing has been done to develop or introduce
physical educational training at the University of B. C, although
many other Canadian colleges have well-organized departments
of long standing.
However, a new Board of Governors was recently appointed, including in its number representatives from the School
Board where trained leaders for physical education classes are
constantly needed, — and the Senate representatives on the
Board must realize that some degree of athletic, or at least physical, activity is one of the pre-requisites to satisfactory academic
Accordingly, the students registered at the University
fully expected that some definite action would be taken this
But apparently the Board of Governors on Monday night
did not take that action. Instead, The Ubyssey understands that
the entire matter was referred to Senate after some preliminary
discussion, so that Senate might consider the possibility of instituting a deparment of physical education. Courses in the department, it is understood, would carry academic credits.
Such a programme would embrace much more than student needs warrant at the present time. It is important to remember that the suggestion put forward by those parties primarily interested in the appointment of an athletic director did
not include the suggestion that physical education on the campus should be either compulsory or on the credit basis.
It must be pointed out, also, that the question of establishing a department of physical education is not one which must
be decided at the same time as the appointment of an athletic
director. The present plan asks only that a qualified instructor
be appointed,—an instructor who would be competent to organize and promote intra-mural sports and give instructions in
physical education on a purely voluntary basis.
Confident expectations were that, with the extention of
the noon recess period now in force, University authorities would
see their way clear to take a long-needd first step to further athletics activities at U. B. C.
The Ubyssey hopes that Senate will, at its next meeting
when the matter comes up for discussion, support the needs of
the student body. Although they may consider the establishment of physical education impossible at the present time, we
trust they will see fit to refer the matter back to the Board of
Governors for immediate action in regard to the appointment of
a qualified instructor.

"Ethiopia has been a thorn in the side of Italy for more than
fifty years," stated Signore Delia Vidova, Italian lawyer of
Seattle, at an open meeting of the International Relations Club
at the home of Ralph Killam, Wednesday evening. «
Vedova, who made the journey from Seattle to address
the meeting, gave a clear and, for the most part, unbiased proof
of his opening statement. His subject was "The Case for Italy,"
and, in the course of his address, he spoke in an amazingly
frank manner.

Intra-Mural Sport Program
•  •   *
Begins Noon Today With Three Gaines
Following the announcement of a
proposed intra-mural sport programme
for the University campus made last
week by John Harrison, men's athletic representative on Students'
Council, plans have finally been completed by a committee appointed to
make all necessary arrangements to
bring the scheme to completion.
The sports programme will be initiated at noon today, with three individual games being played in soccer,
basketball and English rugby, according to Harvey Carruthers, publicity
manager of the intra-mural sports
committee. Other members of the
committee, functioning under the
chairmanship of Jimmy Orr, vice-president of men's athletics at U. B. C,
include: Gordon Cruise, freshman rap
ing.  The additional   sports will be
worked into the programme as soon
as the success of the new Council
policy is assured.
The change in policy is based on
attempts to create a strong inter-dlv-
Isional rivalry, and to inoease the
number of players taking part in athletic activities on the campus. While
most of the competitions will be held
during the extended noon recess period, it Is expected that some sport
contests will take place later In the

any other sport, Carrothers explained.
The Governor's Cup, previously for
competition in inter-class sports, will
still be awarded on the old basis, but
a new cup may be presented to the
winning divisional group.
A new system of scoring has also
been drawn up, the publicity manager
said. Points will be given to each
division for merely fielding a complete team, he stated, although the
majority of points will be awarded
for success in competition.
It is expected that a much greater
number of students will take part in
intra-mural sports under the new
system, Carrothers concluded.
"Our objective is to get every registered man Interested in some cam-

that it wil be necessary to cancel as

> "Ethiopia," the speaker continued,
"ia still governed by chieftlans in •
manner comparable to the old feudal
system. It is the most backward country on the face of the world today,
with about one third of the population In slavery.
"An Italian report on the savage
condition of Ethiopia was recently
presented to the League of Nations,
and, by virtue of the fact that nothing was said, the League seems to
agree on this point. I could cite many
English authors to prove my stand."
"England, in her expansion, his always spoken of the white man's burden to civilize backward people,' but
she is not willing to allow Italy to
assume some of this burden.
"The rights of Italy in Ethiopia
have never been respected. Treaty
after treaty has been signed, only to
be broken by the King of Kings before the ink was dry on the paper.
There have been ninety serious incidents on the border between the Italian colonies and Ethiopia, with many
Italians killed and their land and
property destroyed by savage tribesmen.
"At the close of the World War,
the colonies of Germany were seized
by the victors and divided. France
and England promptly took all the
spoils, leaving nothing for Italy.
"It is true that Italy was given
about three hundred square miles In
the northern part of the country, but
that land is barren and useless. It
has, anyway, always been Italian and
was popularly known as "Unredeemed
"Italy, with 600,000 dead, and 400,000
men injured in the war, a total of a
million, came out   of   the   conflict
'holding the sack.'
"Italy, with a population of 44,000,-
000, is not a4 large as British Columbia, and has not the resources of this
land. There is no coal, oil, or timber
there. Neither is there any land that
is not already over-cultivated to its
limit. The people of Italy are faced
with two alternatives, starvation or
expansion. The land has reached its
utmost In productivity."

Noon today will see the first of a series of
debates arranged by the Forum and utilizing
the extended noon period. The first topic is
the sure-fire question of Oriental franchise.
The Japanese Students Club is cooperating by
providing the arrirmative speakers.
We commend the debate to the student
body; it can hardly fail to prove of interest,
for the problem is very cloae to British Columbians and the interested parties very earnest
in their beliefs.
We would like also to commend the Forum
for its action. Let us hope other societies will
follow suit, so that eventually every noon will
provide students with a choice of pursuits and
In a convincing speech before the International Relations Club, Signore Delia Vedova, an Italian lawyer from Seattle, presented
Italy's case in her dispute with Ethiopia, Wednesday night. Displaying a thorough knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the dispute, Signore Vedova told of Italy's grievances
against Ethiopia, her criticisms of the Allies'
actions at Versailles, her need for overseas expansion, and her attitude to England and the
Although Signore Vedova presented Italy's
case in a very convincing manner, as well as
Italy's case may be presented we might say, and
although if he did not win the complete favor
of his audience, nevertheless influenced them
greatly, yet we cannot say that we are ready
to view Mussolini's actions in a much more
favorable light after his speech.
For one thing Signore Vedova did not give
any new material on Italy's stand. His reas-
sons for Italy's action against Ethiopia were no
different from those we have been reading in
the press of late and these have not been very
One of the chief points which the speaker
cited in support of the necessity of Italy was
her overcrowded population. If Mussolini
thinks that Italy is overpopulated, why does he
so vigorously seek to increase her population
by offering bonuses to mothers having a large
number of children and by otherwise promoting larger families? Under the circumstances
it seems that the only reason for this action
is a desire for greater man-power in a future
Again the lecturer accuses England of intervening in the present cricis purely on the
grounds of protecting her imperial interests.
While it is true that her imperial interests
could not help but influence her in some degree yet the real reason for England's opposition to Italy, is that she sees in Italy's invasion
of Ethiopia a death blow to the collective system of maintaining peace so laborously built
up after the collapse of the balance of power
system in 1914.
If Italy openly flouts the efforts of the
League to keep the peace and deliberately
breaks her word given when she signed the
League covenant what will not any other nation do in starting war at some future time?
The answer surely is that if Italy prevails over
the League's peace-making now the League will
disappear from history as a collective organiza-
ion for preventing war.
It is for these effects on the collective system of maintaining peace that Mussolini's aggression in Ethiopia is most to be deplored and
it seems to us that Signore Vedova has not
convinced us.
Columnists are not supposed to make mistakes. The attitude they take in their treatment of various subjects may differ appreciably from that entertained by their readers.—
but the information contained in their columns
is supposed to be correct.
And yet, occasionally the best-known columnists,—those who must uphold reputations
gained through years of constant, colorful writing,—blunder sadly.
Such was the case on Tuesday of this week
when Mr. Butterfield of the Vancouver Daily
Province jumbled his sources and credited to
Dean F. M. Clement of the faculty of agriculture the speech made at the Ninth Autumn
Congregation by Dr. H. T. J. Coleman of the
department of philosophy.
Whether Dean Clement is flattered by the
mistake I am not in a position to judge. It all
depends on whether Dean Clement agreed with
the ideas expressed by his colleague on the subject of "Education and Propaganda."
But whether he is flattered or insulted
makes very little difference. What matters is
that Mr. Butterfield very carelessly made two
mistakes—he transposed his sources, and he referred to the Ninth Congregation which took
place more than ten years ago.
A member of the Publications Board received a letter recently from Victoria. It was a
very nice letter for I was privileged to read
several of its sections. I'm not sure now just
what my reaction ought to be.
"Have received your last batch of Ubysseys,
(the letter said), . . . Glad to see Nancy Miles
among those still writing . . . How popular is
Peeps Diary . . . The Early Bird is pretty sure
of himself. Some of his worms are rather good,
but he's got one heck of a swell idea of his personal importance."
That is the letter, as far as it is of interest
to general readers. And I'm still wondering
why the girl said "heck"!
This section of the column may not tell
Ewart Hetherington anything he does not already know, and doubtless those students who
read their Ubyssey assiduously have already
discovered for themselves the peculiar tangle
in connection with the Arts '36 elections held
this week. But for democratic reasons I feel
that everyone on the campus is entitled to this
Hetherington, over-brimming with enthusiasm and energy, was elected to the presidency
of the senior class, a position which entitles him
to a seat on the executive of the Artsmen's Undergraduate Society. As president of the senior class he has one vote on that executive.
But several weeks ago Hetherington was
eleced treasurer of the Artsmen's Undergraduate Society.
Now he holds two seats on the executive,
and can cast two votes!
Looking for "inspiration" for the last little
bit of this column, I was sitting in front of a
typewriter, when one of our most ardent pub-
licationists, beaming enthusiastically, said:
"Why don't you try Phrateres!"
It sounded like an excellent idea. My fingers reached for the keyboard, but there they
stopped. I don't know anything about Phrateres.
And that, it seems to me, is one of the main
reasons behind the undeniable failure of the
organization as a live campus society. Too few
people know anything about the aims and objects of the group, who is eligible for inclusion
in its membership, etc.
My suggestions are not usually taken seriously, but I am passing this one along at any
rate; and I trust that executive members of
Phrateres will at least read with interest the
few more words which I am going to write.
The suggestion is that Phrateres needs more
publicity. And even if the editor-in-chief of
The Ubyssey absolutely refuses to print anything about the organization, there are many
other ways in which the much-needed propaganda can be spread around the campus.
One good way is by using posters which
come up to the high standard of those which
are at present advertising the Arts-Aggie Ball.
Slip-shod notices of the type usually pinned in
prominent places advertising Phrateres functions and meetings just don't supply the sort of
publicity that the organization needs.

Signore Delia Vedova continued. "It
Is peculiar that war has become

their colonies by force, and now,
through the League of Nations, are
trying to keep them by keeping the
"The League of Nations has failed
several times lately. Japan took Manchukuo, without League interference.
The Chaco War in South America
didn't seem to interest Geneva. When
Hitler threw off the arms limitations
that had been imposed upon Germany
the League said nothing. Why then,
is England so interested in the Italian-Ethiopian question?
"If air-tight sanctions could be imposed against Italy, half of her population would die within two years.
But there will be no world boycott.
Non-League members such as Germany are already profiting by the
situation. England sells more than
a third of her coal to Italy.
"It is not hard to assume that England is not merely interested in the
plight of the poor negroes in Ethiopia. The source of the Blue Nile,
which flows through Egypt, Is in the
heart of Ethiopia. Also the country
is near the Red Sea and the Suez
Canal, 'the Gateway to India.' These
matters cannot help but Influence the
English viewpoint.
"But we can have very little fear
of conflict between Italy and England. These two powers have never
fought since the time of the Roman
Empire. In the establishment of modern Italy, England played a large
part. Unless something unexpected
happens the peace of Europe can be
taken for granted."
At the conclusion of his talk, Signore Vedova took part in an extended discussion with the members of
the Club. Signore Franseco Parentl,
Italian Consul from Seattle, explained
the Italian viewpoint in regards to
the League.
The meeting closed with Dr. W. N.
Sage moving a hearty vote of thanks
to the Italian visitors from Seattle.
"They have," he said, "enlightened
us on many points that were, till
now, not very clearly outlined."

U.B.C. Student Tells Of
Chinese University Life
"A wonderful experience" is the way Geoffrey Smith, presi-
dent of the S.C.M., describes his year at Lingnan University,
Canton, and his travels through North China, Manchuria, and
Japan. Leaving U.B.C. in 1934, Jeff Smith was the first Canadian student to take advantage of Lingnan's offer of free board
and lodgings for any foreign students wishing to attend that university. Very tanned and fit from his travels, Jeff Smith leaned
back in his chair in the S.C.M. room a few days ago and told
the "Ubyssey" reporter a tale of life in an ancient Chinese university, of Oriental sea ports teeming with humanity, and of
lonely Manchurian railroad stations barricaded with sandbags.
"Lingnan is the wealthiest unlver- nis Is also widely played, and next
sity ln China," Smith said, "and does
not represent the ordinary Chinese
college. Lingnan students wear Western clothes, lectures aro in English,
and the course of study is copied
from that of American colleges. The
buildings at Lingnan are very beautiful, of blue tile in Chinese architecture. The interiors, however, are very
bare and uncomfortable, although
fitted with electric- lighting, frlgl-
dsires, and other Western appliances."
"I was very much Impressed with
the Chinese students' modem attitude to world affairs, and their
knowledge of current history. They
seem to grasp the situation of today
much more dearly than Canadian students, due, possibly, to the large number oi foreign text books from every
part of tho world which they use.
"Sport was very popular at Lingnan, especially soccer whloh they play
with great skill. I turned out to just
one game—that wu enough!   Ten-

"There is practically no social life at
Chinese universities. Perhaps s quarter of Lingnan's four hundred and
fifty students are women, but there is
.little contact between the sexes. Dancing and other entertainments on the
campus are taboo.
Western films are very popular
with Chinese students, who prefer
them to those made in their own
country. Dance music is also popular,
and a movement is taking place to
blend It with the native Chinese
music. The result is surprisingly
pleasing but composers find great difficulty in their work owing to the
two different musical scales involved.
"Art and poetry are greatly advanced, as may be expected ln an ancient civilization, snd modern painters and poets from Europe find much
of interest and inspiration in these
older arts. At present a Chinese "Renaissance" in literature ia under way,
led by Wu Shin, who is trying to
translate the old classics Into the language of the masses. He is branded
as too radical, however, by the conservative upper class, snd was not
permitted to address students at
Lingnan, much to their disappointment.
Chinese make excellent students
because of their astonishing capacity
to nmember facta and quotations. In
this respect the nine American students and myself were hopelessly lost
at exam times. Orientals, however,
seem to lack the originality of thought
of Western students, and rarely approached facts in the scientific attitude of questioning for themselves.
Although the science laboratories at
Lingnan were the equal of any the
Americans and I had ever seen, the
majority of students preferred courses
in philosophy and social science. Public life is considered the ideal vocation
in China.
"The Chinese educational system
has been copied directly from America with public and high schools and
a four-year university course . It does
not meet the needs of the population,
however, since only a very small percentage of the children receive an
education. In recent years a Mass
Education Movement has been organized with the object of teaching elementary agriculture and hygiene.
"The poverty and ignorance of the
Chinese people has not been exaggerated. Whole families exist on incomes
of as little as forty dollars a year in
our currency. The greater majority
of the population can neither read nor
write, and dialects differ In every district. In the interior of China there
is still no communication or transportation. Recently the government has
tried to instruct the peasants in a simplified alphabet of a thouasnd characters, with books to encourage the
use of this new language. A phonetic
alphabet of thirty-nine characters haa
also been invented."
Asked if Chinese students were interested in the problems of Communism or Pacifism, Smith replied that
they were not. China's problems are
totally different, he asserted. Communism is associated with Russian aggression, and anyone attempting to
preach Communism would be speedily dealt with by the government,
which has not forgotten its early troubles with the Communist party.
Military training Is compulsory at
Lingnan, but the students are not enthusiastic, and the parade ground performances were not spectacular for
then- smartness.
"I found North China much more
promising than the South," Smith
stated, "but it is still very primitive.
Manchuria has advanced greatly under Japanese supervision, and its railroad system is a welcome change from
that of China. Nevertheless there are
still many evidences of unrest. Railroad stations are all barricaded, and
several towns are under martial law.

Aimie MacPherson Does
Not Like Women Smoking
No more drinking, no more smoking for women on the campus!
Whether Aimie Sample MacPherson, evangelist with a flair for
publicity, has sufficient Influence on the student body st the University of B. C. to accomplish what has been the aim of college officials
in pest years, Is still to be seen.
But at any rate, the no-smoking, no-drinking policy came to light
during an Interview accorded a representative of The Ubyssey this
week while the colorful leader of one of the most prosperous religious
"cults" on the continent was In Vancouver.
"I firmly believe in any regulation forbidding women smoking on
the campus," she declared with obvious enthusiasm, "and I object to
their drinking because of the bad example they set!"
"Of course the matter should first be thoroughly investigated before such steps are taken," she continued.
"It is very un-Christtan to get drunk," she answered. "No punish,
men can be too severe .. ." (Here followed fitting Biblical quotation).
"There Is nothing like the S.C.M. In American colleges," she continued.. Mrs. MacPherson expressed the opinion that some such movement should be started In the United States.
Although economics and co-education may not seem closely affiliated, the evangelist expressed her opinion that co-education was a
good Idea from both social and economic viewpoints. She also deplored the fact that religion was sadly neglected In most educational

Here's hoping that we get the results. Somehow or the other issues
containing the results of straw votes,

Here is the questionnaire:
"In view of Italy's actions against
Ethiopia to date, do you believe the
League of Nations is justified in applying:
(a) Economic Sanctions?
(b) Military Sanctions?
2. In the event that Great Britain
should become involved in a war

Canada should also declare war?
3. Would you be personally prepared to bear arms in such a war?"
Around The Campus
By Darby
Social note—The Pub Office was the scene of a pretty
duel on Tuesday noon when Ken Grant and the Around Cam-
puser fought for their respective honors. The weapons were
water pistols at six paces, but on discovery of the fact that the
pistols would not breach a gap of that size, the distance was reduced to four paces. After consultation between the seconds the
battle royal began. By virtue of his better squeezing ability,
Grant was declared winner, although the columnist is pressing
for a recount .... after the battle water was served to the
audience by DePoe and stooge who cleared the Pub of people
by the simple expedient of turning the water pistols on them
.... when the crowd reassembled a Song Service was held by
the Pub. Choir, which lasted for eighty awful minutes . . . casualties at the conclusion .... twelve overstrained voices.
The hunting season must be open. Seen on the campus
the other day was a chap all dressed up for the shoot, complete
with gun, cap, jacket, and on the leash, two springer spaniels.
This combination was seen emerging from the brush behind
the stadium and proceeding towards the University Farm. A
freshette who passed by the strange sight heard him mumbling
queer nothings to the world in general.
People hand in all sorts of Lost and Found ads to the Ubyssey, but those below are some gems culled from the lot.

Considering his importance to the
university, Ivor Moe is a man about
whom very little is known. Besides j
coaching American football, for which |
his services were originally obtained,
he had taken on the jobs of coaching
wresling and basketball.
In his high-school days he didn't
do much, he just took part In basketball, football and track. From
high-school he went to the University of Washington, where he played
football for one year. He then moved
fo Western Washington College of
Education, and there helped his
school along by spending three years
at football and two years at track.
At the same time he was a member
of the North-West Officials Association as a basketball referee.
While playing at Bellingham Moe
was named by coaches as the best end
ever to play at that college. He was
Washington State discus champion ln
1927 and came 5th in the national
meet at Soldier's Field in Chicago.
He coached football at Whatcom
High School in Bellingham before
coming here. Coach Moe says he uses
no particular "system" in his football
using those plays to which the team
is most adapted. While keeping to
his rule, the plays used here are somewhat along the lines of the "short
punt" system which was used part of
the time by the Alabama team which
was National champion last year. —

shouldn't be played, they look on the
meeting tomorrow as a push-over.
However, the co-eds have a different
With the alternative of entering a
three-way tie for league leadership,
or of relinquishing hope of ending the
season in first place, the students will
be all out to win. After the pep talks

the boys decided to Iron out their
game in the scrum and line-outs
where most of the weakness lies, and
with that in view extra practices were
held besides the regular Wednesday
grind which seems to have put the
teams back on their championship feet
for the season. Another big goal they
aim at is that of the New Zealand
All-Blacks which the winning team of
the locals may have a chance to do.
While the southern tour has been
cancelled, and the meeting with the
Blacks a will-o-the-wisp, Varsity may
have new worlds to conquer since
Stanford has proposed a trip here
shortly. An inter-collegiate series for

Rowing Club
Regatta Wednesday
The Varsity Rowing Club will hold
its first and only fall regatta on Wednesday next at 3 o'clock. It will take
place at the Vancouver Rowing Club
at Coal Harbour. The first race will
be between St. George's School and
Varsity, while the three succeeding
races will be between different Varsity teams.
ball handling which brought Varsity
to the play-offs last year, Berry especially playing a good game, snar-
ng passes in mid air to leave the
flabbergasted V.A.C.'s flat footed.
Miller opened the scoring In the
first minute of play, receiving the
ball from the jump, and weaving
around the defence with ease. Pringle and McKee followed with a basket each.
In the first fifteen minutes, the
Vacs managed to collect three points
on foul shots, while the Thundarbirds
tallied eleven. Finally, after they
had had the ball 29 times, Purves
broke through for a score. The Mclntyre boys started to work, and Varsity had to use their so-called zone
defence. McKee ended the half with
a long shot right through the hoop,
leaving a 19-7 lead for Varsity.
The second half opened with a
technical foul when "Rookie" Helem
failed to report his substitution. This
was the only Varsity point for a few
minutes, the Vac aerial attack clicking all along the line, and bringing
the score up to 19-20.
After a hastily called time out,
Varsity opened their scoring. Rush-
the Vac defense, they wove In and
around, losing the ball as many
times as not, but snaring points periodically.
Miller did some very bad playing
and some very good playing, climaxing the bad by a pass which turned
into a shot and which sailed awkwardly up to the backboard and
bounced into the hands of a waiting
V.A.C., and reaching the high point
in the second half with a spectacular
and well timed individual rush the
length of the floor for a score.
Pringle got ninety percent of V.A.
C.'s rebounds, and shot them back to
the other end of the floor before the
red trousered boys could get organized.
Lucas cinched the game with a
tally In the last minute of play. Final
score:  27-23.
And the colossal crowd of 21 paid
admissions, eleven passes, four newspaper reporters and Vic Town went
home satisfied.
