No. 26
"One lawyer's views of various
schemes for reform," was the topic
taken by J. W. DeB. Farris, K.C., in
his address on Saturday evening before the Vancouver Institute.
In opening his lecture, Mr. Farris
illustrated the difference between reform and change. "Reform" he defined as a "change, for the better"
and said that not all changes or revolutions mean improvement of conditions. "No mob ever solved anything," he said. "Let us keep our
perspective and not lose sight of
what we have."
Science of Reform
Mr. Farris denied the common assumption that lawyers are against
reform, saying that law is the science
of human relations and1 reform, or
desire for change, is essential to human progress'. He said, "I can st
objection to revolution, even bloody
revolution—lT.it' wiU, be an improvement. But," he continued, "no man
should make that move merely from
the desire for change."
Justice Progresses
"On the whole, as far as law ln the
British Empire Is concerned, Justice
has not fallen behind in ths march
of human progress," Mr. Farris
stated. "The British people move
more slowly and surely to the bettering of their conditions. National fanaticism has nev*r prospered in any
part of the British Empire. No man
with an iron will and a hand of
steel has ever taken a poUtical leadership as compelling as even Roosevelt has to-day 'n the United States."
A Menace to Democracy
Of Mussolini's system of one man
government in Italy, Mr. Farris said,
"Temporary domination by one man
of the people, weakens what is the
main force in any community—the
ability of the people to govern themselves. We have believed in our
country that "Jack is as good as his
master," but now, in our time, democracy is being threatened," He went
on to tell of the three evils which
are endangering rane decisions of the
Evils of To-day
These were, according to Mr. Farris, firstly—false prophets who try to
fill the common need for a strong
leader to-day; secondly, the catcR-
words or slogans that arouse support
while only being half-truths; and
lastly Mr. Farris declared human
selfishness was the cause of these
evils and only tha spirit of brotherly
love could cure them completely.
Mr. Farris, in his conclusion, said,
"Every man must take stock, carefully, of things as they are and make'
his own decisions."

Edmonds Elected
In Arts '37 Polls
Cries of "We want Idyll," opened
the meeting for elections ln the class
of Arts '37 on Friday. Amid much
disorder, Murray Mather, who was
chairman, wrote the names of the
nominees on the blackboard and
caUed for votes.
After some delay caused by the
attending Sciencemen wishing to vote,
Edmonds was elected President by an
overpowering majority of women's
votes. Mr. Edmonds thanked the
ladies and others gracefully and proceeded to take charge of tht chaos.
Nominations from the floor for the
position of vice-president were called
for, and Connie Baird wss elected by
There was some confusion about
the nominations for secretary, Fanny
Freshette and Aimee Semple McPherson being among the nominees.
Dorothy Eastman won this, however.
' Bruce Bardwell was appointed
treasurer by an enthusiastic audience.
Clarence' Idyll was , elected Men's
Athletic Representative by acclamation and Beth Evans was elected
Women's Athletic Representative.

the interest of a large audience in
Arts 204 Wednesday noon.
Religious Problem
Speaking on "Soviet Russia and
God," Mr. Talnicoff, pastor of Edmunds Baptist Church and graduate
of thc University of Manitoba, set
forth graphically the religious pnob-
lem of the Soviet today. Tha last
days of the war, he sold, found the
Russian government shocked and battered, in no condition to resist the
fury of revolution, Centuries of oppression by Church and State behind them, an oppression personified
in the venemous hypnotist Rasputin
with his whip of "heU hereafter and
Siberia here upon earth," the people
aimed at a total wiping out of everything that symbolized the tyranny
from which they had escaped. "We
will banish the gods from the sky
and capitalists from the earth", was
tbs ahlboleth stressed and reiterated
by the leaders.
'Enemy of Freedom
Religion, stated Mr. Talnicoff, was
and still is considered the archenemy of the new freedom. War
against it is being carried on vigorously through propaganda in the
form of slogans, posters ridiculing
phases of religion, moving pictures
and magazines. Children are educated by atheistical teachers skilled
in child psychology, and as an additional measure Sunday as a day of
worship has been abolished.
Describing the use of slogans, the
speaker quoted several of the most
popular. Prominent among these were
"God is the Christian Jehovah of
War and Jesus Is the Christian Ood
of Slavery," and the now universaUy
known "Religion is the Opiate of the
Masses." ChUdren are educated in
atheism from their earliest years,
parades in which effigies of Christ
and the saints are burned taking the
place of Christmas and Easter celebrations as conducted in other countries. There is also the "Union of
the Militant Godless," a powerful
youth organization with branches in
almost every land, Canada included.
In a brief historical sketch, Mr. Talnicoff presented startling evidence of
the lengths to which the Oreek Orthodox Church went in Russia. By
their superstitious fears the peasants
lent themselves tc countless impositions and frauds, one example of
which was an image of Christ fitted

By the Campus Crab
The Campus Crab goes emotional,
and pulls an Aimee Semple McPherson. This Is unusual, also Its good,
don't miss it He goes back Into his
shell, and bestows some high praise
on the Kaf, ln his usual style.
Is the Campus Crab unduly optimistic? In a recent argument anent his
strictures on various campus conditions, the opinion was forcibly expressed that- the University is very
well as it is. lt was also said that
it is solely for .immediate peronal
benefit that one attends the institution. As a coroUary, it transpired that
general opinion holds that the single
student doesn't care anything about
the University as a whole, but only
as it ministers to his personal ambitions and desires.
Perhaps I am an incurable PoUy-
anna. I know I am an Incurable idealist. I do beUeve that this attitude
is .airly general on the campus, but
I also beUeve that it is a damnable
disgrace to the campus, and that lt
is essentially an abnormal and cancerous excrescence on the undergraduate mentality.
If there is any place in the universe
/here a generous enthusiasm, a wholesome self-abnegation, a devotion to the
welfare of the whole, as opposed to the
aggrandizement of the individual,
should, and under normal conditions
will, manifest itself in human society,
that place is in the universities, the
training ground of the rising generation, where, at the expense of the
state, they are trained to take their
place as the superior class of the future.
If this normal manifestation is
crushed and discouraged by a callow;
cynicism engendered through a cowardly fear of criticism, we are plunged
into the lackadaisical attitude and
fragmentary activity so characteristic
at present of this campus. We become
mentaly greasy; our thoughts have a
fish-belly consistency. We are distorted, having become "men of the world"
in its worst sense, before we have become men in any sense.
The facts cannot be denied by an
intelligent reader. The conclusions
drawn from them can only be denied
by the exercise of that same adolescent cynicism that is the base of
the trouble, a cynicism derived from
an inferiority complex built on the average undergraduate's efar of derision
natural to him.
If this false shame is allowed to
range unchecked and become engrained in our characters, it will result in
our destruction, our necessary destruction, before the tide of co-operative
sentiment that is rising in the world
This is the first and last sermon to
be preached by the Campus Crab. He
will return to the tactics of abuse
and ridicule so eminently suited to
impress the flabby mentalities he has
to deal with.
It is difficult to be moderate when
discussing the cafeteria. It deserves
the highest possible praise. It is so
eminently suited to Its patrons.
Everything possible is done to moke
them feel at home—and success is
I am, as you may have observed,
unalterably opposed to the regimentation of the individual. If I like to
put my feet on the table, I object if
I am forbidden to exercise the rugged
individuality inherent in my character. If I wish to move in an atmosphere of flying scraps above a
sea of discarded lunch papers, I do
not see why the unreasonable fastidiousness of a few straight-laced exquisites should deprive me of my desire. If my soul cannot find its natural outlet except in flinging garbage about indiscriminately, I do not
see why I should warp my ego by
suppressing the impulse at the behest
of the effete aristocrat.
If the same unreasonable element
attempted to have a decent quality
of catering Institued at the expense
of my desire for the satisfying food
which they choose to caU greasy, unwholesome and messy, let them go
elsewhere—I am willing to pay for
what I want, and I refuse to have my
personal liberty interfered with. If
they wish to prate about health, decency and goad manners, let them
take their jug of vegetable soup out
underneath the vine in the botanical garden, and not bore me with

presented it in December at the Little Theatre under the sponsorship of
the Norwegian Singers' Association.
That production was acclaimed as
one of the best ever put on by Little
Theatre actors. Dr. G. G. Sedgewick
saw it, and made up his * min? to
bring it to the university for the benefit of the students, who have all
studied the play as a part of the
English 1 course.
He points out that acting will bring
this famous play to life as reading
never could, and he urges all students to attend and bring their parents with them. The price is 35 cents,
one-third of what it was at the Little
"The Doll's House" is the first play
in which Ibsen attacked social abuses.
It reaches its climax in the famous
scene in which Nora quietly tells
Helmer that she is going to leave
him because their marriage gives her
no chance of development.
It is also interesting as the first
play in which Ibsen utiUzed his new
realistic technique. He has not, however, gained aa perfect command over
the medium as he did in his later
plays, and the audience wUl probably notice that the two soliloquies
seem out of place, ln spite of their
magnificent delivery by Mr. Buck-
The aU-important tole of Nora is
acted by Joan Miller with vivacious
charm. It is her second triumph this
season, since she also played the title
part in "Elizabeth the Queen."
Mr. Buckingham, who was Lord
Essex in that play, again appears opposite Miss Miller, in a quiet but convincing style. He is a graduate of
the Players' Club, and acted for them
in "Fog" at last year's drama festival.
Miss Marjorie EUis is another prominent alumni member of the Players'
Club who wUl be seen in "The Doll's
House." She plays the part of Mrs.
Lind, Nora's friend.
Mr. Carlton Clay is the director.
The settings, costumes and properties will be brought out from the
Little Theatre. Players' Club members wUl assist with the stage work,
and also have charge of the advertising and ticket sale.

decision sgainst Harold Clawson and

Saskatchewan, in the Hotel Vancouver on Friday night last at 1:15.
On the same evening in Winnipeg,
the Manitoba team defeated Jim Ferris and John Sumner of U.B.C. by
a 2-1 decision,
the ready wit and flowing oratory
$of Ed. Fox and Nathan Nemets did
much to hold the attenion of the audience while Varsity spoke. Among
other "stories and quips" Fox related
the famous 'Mr. Fox, Mr. Nox, and
Mr. Cox' case.
A vivid description of overproduction existing in the present system

tried to show that our salvation—
unlike that of Mae West—doss not
lie in curves—in booms and depression — but rather in. straight lines.
The visiting team claimed that in
its levelling process, socialism would
cut off ihe mountains but would not
raise the valleys. Further, they
thought that the depression was due
to abuses of the Capitalist system,
not to defects in that system.
"With the removal of competition
and the profit-motive in Industry,
will go hand in hand aU stimuU to
production, to research, and to advancement/' claimed the negative.
However, trie affirmative challenged
that statement.
"Did the scientists in the Edison
laboratories work just for their salary? No! They were impeUed by
the desire to discover some new process. Under socialism, men will stUl
work for the public welfare, and for
the honour and good government of
the nation."

were so powerful in the C.N.R. and
asked why these conditions would
not occur in other socialized industries.

At the Play
With "Hawk Island," which the International Players are presenting
this week at the Vancouver Hears,
comedy of manner and farcical fantasy is deserted for mystery of strong
dramatic flavor.
The play is not that type of mystery which reUes for its suspense
chiefly on the withholding of the
murderer's Identity (as tn "AUbl").
Murder is actually witnessed ss a
startling climax to Act Two. Our interest is held by the endeavors of the
players to resolve their mlxup, com-
pUcated by a pretended murder,
which the real killing turns from a
practical joke into a misunderstanding of grave consequence.
Few people would blame Gregory
Sloane (Leyland Hodgson) for staging a mock murder. The guests at
his house party on lonely, stormbound Haw Island were for the most
part those queer human bings who
delight in the recounting of crime,
from the comfortable remoteness of
arm chairs.
The presiding pod of the gathering
was Anthony Bryce, the prolific con-
cocter of murder novels, of important appearance, vain, timid. Confronted with a flesh and blood murder, he is alternately ostentacioua and
self-effacing, as prudence dictates.
Colin Craig gives an incisive characterization as the jealous Tom Austen, while Barbara Brown as his wife
sustains a role rather drained of
The chief shortcoming of the play
is perhaps that it contains some characters of a sterile conventionality; the
chief fault of the players a tendency
to emphasize farcical elements in
The play displayed a smoothness of
direction, considering the exigency
of a weekly change of biU, which
was commendable.—J. B. C. Page Two

Q_ inestimable value to English 1 students
will be the presentation of "The Doll's House/'
«Ibsen's famous play, on Thursday night in the
University auditorium. Tlit audience should
not, however, be limited to EngUsh 1 students
—the play is sponsored by the English Department, and the Players' Club, and they should
be supported by the whole student body. Dr.
O. Q. Sedgewick is personally assuming financial responsibUity for the production, and is
bringing it to the University for the benefit
of anyone who has studied the play. It is a
certainty beforehand that the play has been
well-directed, by Mr. Carlton Clay, and the
talent of the Little Theatre artists need not be
pointed out. Graduates from the Players' Club
will appear in the production.
We suggest that it is worth while for you to
attend this play. The price is exceptionally low
for such a production.
Today is bidding day. A large number of
freshmen on the campus will be faced with the
problem of deciding whether or not they will
ally themselves with campus fraternity life.
The merits and demerits of fraternities in
general are a matter for the individual to decide. Although not always beneficial to the
University as a whole, they are now an integral
part of campus life and must be recognized as
such. *
Freshmen are advised not to be too precipitate in accepting a fraternity bid. A thorough
consideration must first be made of the objects
and ideals of the fraternity, of the character
of its members and of the financial and other
Fraternities exercise to a surprising extent
a moulding influence on the characters of their
members. A prospective pledge should be certain that the fraternity ideals do not conflict
with his own code of conduct. He should be able
to feel that mutual benefit should accrue both
to himself and his fellow members out of their
Freshmen often join fraternities without a
thorough investigation of the financial obligations. Only after initiation do they realize that
they are unable to meet the costs involved.
This is a frequent cause of unhappiness and disappointment. These expenses should be carefully considered.
Many students expect great benefits to accrue to them automatically on joining a fraternity. If so, they should be disillusioned. The
student gets out of the fraternity only what he
puts in. It is the same with all student activities.
It should be emphasized particularly that
fraternities are decidedly secondary to the
University as a whole. They represent merely
one aspect of student life. Premier loyalty at
all times is due to your Alma Mater.
Beauty, returning, lights my hills with laughter
And on the meadows where her feet have strayed
Shall flow the purple wine ot heather; and after
Flame-flower, and deUcate bells of mountain maid.
She has returned from some far distant heaven
Unto the worshippers who deemed her slain
Bringing the spring home with her: the rich leaven
Works, and the Resurrection once again
Breathes its wild promise through the upland rain,

"Day-dreaming, Peter, and this press
day ?" I chided my little literary ape. "Come,
bestir yourself! Copy goes down in half-an-
hour, and here we are, destitute as usual."
"I doubt very much sometimes," said
Peter, jolted out of his recerie, "if you have
a soul at all. You find me musing in lofty
vein - - - - "
"The Epic of Apeland ?" I enquired, referring to Peter's tedious and interminable masterpiece.
"No," said Peter. Then shyly: "I went
walking Sunday afternoon. Walking in the
Park. And • and Bill • - " here something
very like a blush stained his leathery countenance — "I met Her. Curly, I mean."
At this I wailed outright, knowing that for
a week, at least, Peter would be worse than
"Lovelier than ever," he continued, "poor
little caged creature! And all I was able to
do was steal her some peanuts and breathe a
word of sympathy through the bars."
Peter wiped a furtive tear from his nose.
"How I'd like to set her free !" he cried.
"You," X told him sternly, "will attempt
nothing of the kind. And il you don't scout
me out some news in five minutes, 111 just
phone for the Parks people  "
That was more than enough. Peter
snatched up paper and pencil and skipped
chattering through the open window. Cruel,
you say ? Perhaps so, but with spring arbund
the corner a firm hand is essential if one
would keep the feet of his literary ape pattering along the path of duty.

Students who attended the V.C.U. open
meeting last Wednesday noon with a stock of
difficult questions ready to hand found that
the speaker had stolen their thunder.
Broad-minded to a degree and signally
lacking in the cant that, as nothing else will,
rouses the average student to ridicule, Mr. Talnicoff gave a sound and interesting address. His
subject, 'Soviet Russia and God,' he presented
with tolerance and what one felt to be genuine
understanding of the vexed problem of religion
in the Soviet.
A word in all friendliness to the good
people of the V.C.U.: if you wish to popularize
your meetings, get more speakers of Mr. Talni-
coff's calibre, and fewer of the variety whose
catchword is "Now-My-Beloved."

I met « horseman riding out of yesterday	
He carried a long rifle across his saddle bow,
Behind were the little pack-ponies, stepping aU arow,
The little, tough hlU ponies, halfway up to the sky,
And I reined to the side in wonder as the cavalcade
jogged by.
For I knew by his blackened buckskins and his hard,
scarred tan
That over the Bright Angel had ridden a mountain-man.
He sat his horse Uke a savage; his eyes were fixed and
Searching the empty desert, and the tumbled hlUs between
Our trail and the high Sierras, where spire upon gleaming spire
Flamed out like an altar candle, touched by the east-
tern fire.
What strange thing was he seeking, back of the sunrise
glow ?
Where had he come from, riding out of the long ago ?
Under the diamond-hitches what did his kyacks hold ?
Pelts of martin and beaver, or the rough red mountain
There at the rim of the desert I watched them pass and

Tut, Tut, Sir Drummond
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
"Ignorance ever clothes its shame
in lies."
This thought arose on perusal of
an authentic report of certain "information" said to have been imparted to Economics One, Nov. 29, by
Prof. Drummond, in reference to
Douglas Social Credit, the system of
New Economics devised by Major
C. H. Douglas, a famous and wealthy
Scottish engineer and artistocrat who
shortly visit Vancouver.
If my information is true, and I
have no occasion to doubt its credibility, Prof. Drummond seems eminently fitted to criticize Douglas, for,
as he admitted recently in public
meeting, he has never read a line
that Douglas ever wrote, nor "wasted
his time" endeavoring to understand
the constructive writings of others on
Social Credit. Judging by his reported remarks also lt would appear
that he had not even sought to acquaint himself with the character or
antecedents of a man whom he hod
the bad taste to stigmatise.
The question of Social Credit arose
when Prof. Drummond made passing
refsrance to it in Economics One
clsss. A student asked for more de-
taUed information.
Here are the unchanged notes which
one student Jotted down at the time:
"Social Credit wss invented by a
Scottish engineer, Msjor Douglas,
who knowing nothing of the laws of
economies, wrote several books on
the subject. In liis early days aa on
engineer he had had numerous setbacks in his attempts to get to the
top, and (Drummond hare conveyed
the impression that Major Douglas
was turned against society) presently
decided upon a plan to remake the
economic system. 'He is far from
consistent. When confronted upon a
certain point and conclusively proven
unsound, he shifts ground and starts
agfain when counteracted, saying "I
didn't mean that What I meant ia
this—'" Then Drummond said: There
may be a rudimentary germ of an
idea ln aU his verbiage and ambiguities.' (laughter). The general idea
seems to be that the Government pays
retailers some percentage, Douglas is
not quite clear on the point.' (laughter)—about 20 percent. Where the
Government would get thia money
he doesn't say . . . The whole thing
seems to be solved by A plus B,
where A equals the disparity between purchasing power and the supply of commodities, and B equals
Social Credit (laughs).
"G. D. H. Cole and one of the Oxford profesors have 'analyzed Douglas 'to the point of decomposition.'
(Drummond here reiterated that Major Douglas had no training in economics but got started when he had
a long chain of bad experiences in
attempting to Ret financial backing
for his many undertakings as an engineer) and added "The local branch
of the Social Credit group recently
sent me a tetter inviting me to attend
one of their meetings, and if inter-
sted, to give a lecture along similar
lins. I might say now that I am not
going to give any lecture along similar lines.*"
And this, if, as I firmly believe, my
informant is correct, is the malicious
and pernicious nonsense handed out
to students of tho University of Brit
lsh Columbia, whose fees contribute
to th. maintenance of those hired to
direct them in the paths of knowledge.
'Without equivocation, a greater
mass of gross inaccuracy could not
have been compiled on any given
Prof. Drummond is not even fair to
G. D. H. Cole, whom he cited as a
crtlc of Douglas. Even Cole, a
Socialist blind to all else, makes no
attempt to inveigh against the bona
fides of Major Douglas.
In fact of all the presumably intelligent criticism of the Douglas system that has come to my attention—
and I admit there's quite a bit—not
one of the critics, howsoever bitter in
behalf of his cherished doctrines of
Scarcity, stopped to caluminate this
Douglas, who is known throughout
the length and breadth of Great
Britain and India as a man of infinite inteUect and highest integrity
Now lest I be classified with my
subject, who suffers Logic to slink
before invective, let me outline to
you students of U.B.C. the fair, impartial facts, which Prof. Drummond,
had he been loyal to your Alma Mater, might have given.
In the first place, Economic Democracy, by Major Douglas, an excellent text-book on Douglas Social
Credit which I commend to you (and
Prof. Drummond' was selected by
Prof. W. A. Irvine of Sydney, N.S.W.
as the theme for the Major Thesis in
economics, a few years ago.
Is it possible that the ignorant
maunderings of a man unversed in
economics could have achieved so
high a distinction?
As to the personal standing of Major Douglas, he is a cousin of Lord
Weir, millionaire director of the
Cunard Steamship Une. He majored
in mathematics   at Cambridge   and

Early in his carter he wu appointed
to a high pest in the Indian Railway
servioe. You may Judge ai hit position by the fact that his work threw
him into almost dsUy contaot with
the Comptroller of Indian Currency,
and they became doss friends.
Major Douglas first became interested in the study of economics
through conversations with the Com-
troller. Shortly after the outbreak
of war he was caUed horns by the
British Government to take charge
of the Royal Aircraft Works at Kan-
don, where his skill as an executive
and his knowledge of mathamatica,
enabled him to win the personal,
pubUc, praise of Premier David Lloyd
It was here aftjr pursuing his studies of conventional economics for
some years, that Major Douglas
reached conclusions with regard to
the present economic system which
resulted in the founding of the New
Economics, or im it is known—and
adhered to by more than two million people in various parts of the
Empire—Douglas Social Credit.
Contrary to Prof. Drummond's astonishing misconception, Social Credit
is not subversive in the sense that it
seeks to tear down the existing social order. It 's simply based upon
the contention that the Age of Scarcity passed away with the advent of
the industrial revolution, and the
march of science and invention has
since ushered in the New Era of
Abundance; In short—the poor are
not poor because the rich are rich,

By Nancy MUes
The University of Idaho is very
fortunate. The Gem of the Mountains, which ueema to be a publication
in those parts, is holding a beauty
contest. Twenty young ladles entered the contest, and eight Venuaes
tied for first place. Imagine being in
the midst of eight specimens of perfection.   Discouraging!
The Toronto Varsity reports a lecture given by Dr. Lutx of the Amer-
icsn Museum of Natural History in
New York, on the subject of "Test-
ing Insect InteUigonce." Cockroaches
and bees, it turns out .are not the
dimwits we have alwaya considered
them, at times they have shown faculties not always noticed iii mankind.
The cockroach was put on the spot
to be tested* A number were sent
along a certain route untU it became
a habit and they could find their
way ia the dork. (Cockroaches are
sensitive about their appearances It
would seem, for they shun the light
We certainly can't blame them.) Then
on the route which they took, a has-
ard was introduced in the form of en
electric Shock. The runners learned
in a comparatively short time to walk
around, and not over the shock.
Bees, too were put under observation, with the astounding conclusion that they eon disingulsh colours,
and besides that they have no need
of strings around their fingers, because they have memories. Imagine
the elephant and the bee having on
unfortunate encounter. Elephants,
you know, nsver forgetl When you're
through contemplating the irresistible
body and the Immovable force meeting, just meditate on that little problem for a while.

That is the University crest as granted by the Royal CoUege of Arms in
London and described in the Royal
Charter of the University. The charter is a very imposing document with
its sentences all written in the long
round-a-bout legal way. Scattered
all through it ere the impressive
names of Lords and Dukes who had
something to do with the founding of
our University.
Heraldry and Wax
At the top of the document are >
three very noble and colorful coats
of arms, also a large picture of the
university crest. At the bottom, suspended by ribbons, are three glod
seals about two inches in diameter
and one inch thick. These gold boxes
can be opened to reveal three red
wax seals bearing the royal crest.
Just above the seals at the bottom
of the parchment are the signatures
of thre men who are empowered to
grant such charters.
The charter wa* given on June IS,
1914, and was the very beginning of
the University. It Is also a patent of
our crest. The charter is kept in the
Registrar's office carefully rolled and
locked in a lorjg red box.

Anti-Christian Acts

wih pipes through which the blood
of goats was pumped from a reservoir. In pre-Revolution days there
were in Russia more holy relics than
Jerusalem itself could have accomodated. These included bones of St.
John of Patmos in such vast numbers that, if put together, they would
have comprised a skeleton-army, and
several thousand gold - embossed
hooves of the original 300 Gadarene
swine. The state religion of Russia,
according to the speaker, was based
on fear Instead of fearlessness, Church
and State joining forces to hold the
masses in Ignorance.
Normal Reaction
With this in mind, the reaction is
only normal. Mr. Talnicoff expressed
a belief that the anti-Christian movement is not a menace to true Christianity but rather to the false things
In the heart of Christianity, and the
result, he feels, will be a sweeping
away of old-regime Impurities.
In closing,  the speaker denounced
the Church for its smugness and self
content. "The Church is ineffective
socially," he stared. "The world war
demonstrated that. Christianity has
become too much an attitude; it requires the flaying whip of new
thought to make it think, and think
clearly. The menace to Christianity
is within the Church itself."
Debate a Farce
Pleasant-spoken and convincing,
the young minister handled capably
all questions asked him. Replying to
a query as to what h. thought of the
approaching Mncpherson-Smith debates, he said: "I think it is a farce!
I have never seen anything good
come of a debate. Religion is caught,
not taught, and Aimee Is no argument for Christianity." In answer to
another question he named hypocrisy,
in many cases unconscious, as the
outstanding fault of the Christian

Osbome Taken for Ride
The Friday ga ie in New Westminster Wss rather a rough affair. The
Fraser Squad was laying for Bob
Osborne and gavs him rather a hectic time. But in spite of the antag-
onlstic efforts of the opponents, Varsity had rather an easy victory. The
opposing team had only 5 points with
seven minutes to go. However, a
last minute rally gave them a few
more points.
The Westminster boys did not relish defeat and in a fit of spite they
let the air out of the tires of Varsity
Saturday's Game Quiet
The Saturday game at Varsity
against the B. and W. Oil was a
much more law chiding affair. The
students soon ran up a lead of ten
points but the Oilers came through
with a nice raUy to slightly decrease
that lead towards the end of the first
half. Varsity were only playing average ball and the score at half time
was 17-10.
During the second half the visitors
were very much outclassed, and the
Blue and Gold boys romped through
to an easy victory. A few nice plays
and some pretty shots from the area
of th« foul line were the features of
this period. The Oilers fought hard
for victory but they were unable to
get together will enough to even
threaten the Varsity lead.

Both our soccer squads received an
unexpected holiday over the weekend when Old Man Snow outdid Dal-
ton's famed Seagulls by spotting
Vancouver and vicinity to such an
extent that play was entirely out of
the question.

To date the Farmers are on even
terms with us, although we have a
higher goal average: in 1931 they
drew 2-2 with us in Chilliwack, but
lost by five goals to nil in Vancouver
in 1932 they beat us by the only goal
of the match; in 1933 there was no
"Invasion" on account of adverse
weather conditions; in 1934 we are
confident of going ahead.
Chalk-talk on Tuesdays and field

so "Private, and close to the field"
is his way-cry now.
Wait till you see our goalie's new

Despite the fact that the
weather prophet stated we
would have rain and light
winds, it snowed. For that reason, ail rugby and soccer games
were canceUed.
Blue and Gold Men Show Class
When They Defeat Victoria 'Yl
Barclay, Heron Stott, Shine
The above gentleman is none other than Bill Stott, who
starred in the traek meet with Victoria last Friday night. There
is a possibility that Bill tied the world's record in the indoor
50-yard sprint. Victoria officials are measuring the course to
determine whether BUl is a new world's champ in this event.
English Ruggers To
Meet In Knock-outs
Varsity Senior English Rugby
squad will engage in a knockout series against the remainder of the
teams in the Miller and Tisdall Cup
leagues. Meralomas, Canadian rugby
champions have declined the invitation of the English Rugby Union to
play in the seri.s.
Varsity, who won more points in
league competition than any other
team but the All Blacks, feel that
they have a good chance to win the
knockout series. The student squad
feeling that they have improved with
every start hope to take the North
Shore AU Blacks.
As yet it has not been announced
who Varsity will play on Saturday.
The next McKechnie Cup game will
be against Vancouver Rep on Feb. 3.
There will be a general meeting
today at 12:10 in Arts 102. AU membera are asked to attend.
Huskies Down
U.B.C. Swimmers
U.B.C. splasheis went down to defeat before a strong Washington
swim team in Seattle last Saturday.
The Washington boys copped every
first place to score a 52-23 triumph
over the Blue ancl Gold narators.
In the first race, the 100 yard
breast stroke, Washington copped the
first two places, and Moxon of Varsity came third.
Andison of the U. B. C. team came
second in the 50 -yard free style, with
Washington taking the other two
The Huskies also took the 200-yard
relay with time of 5:51:6. In the 50-
yard backstroke Wainwright took
third place with Washington coming
first and second.
U.B.C. took two places in the 200
yard freestyle with Lund and Mines
taking second and third places respectively. Washington took the 50-
yard medley relny with time 1:39:2,
Lougheed of U.B.C. took second place
in the diving event, which was the
last race to take place.
Friday the Varsity track club travelled to Victoria and
trounced a by-no-means incapable Victoria Y.M.C.A. squad,
almost doubling the score on their opponents.
By so doing they, in the opinion of this department, assured themselves of a permanent berth amongst the major
sports of this University. Whispers have been heard that if the
promotion of soccer would cause the demotion of some other
major, track would be the one to take the axe.
All hope for a real stadium that would do justice to the
only Canadian Varsity on the Pacific coast would have to be
abandoned for at least a decade if track became a sub-major
sport. If any sport deserves a major rating it is Track.
Besides the fact that Vancouver is one of the finest cities,
with regard to its percentage of star athletes, in the Dominion,
many champions and potential champions are members of the
student body of its University.
A junior Canadian broad jump champion, A junior Canadian discuss champion, and if reports are substantiated, a 50-
yard indoor dash champion. What other sport can boast of such
nation-wide distinction amongst its followers?
In regard to the interest shown to the various track activities on the campus, one need only recall the crowds attending the large track meets last year, the Arts '30 road race, and
the Arts '20 relay.
Track is a major, and there it is going to stay.
Herb. Barclay Defeats Chuck. Cunningham
/To Win Mile and Half Mile Title
Stewart, Stott, Roberts and Agnew Win First
Places For Varsity
Before a large and enthusiastic
crowd, Varsity's track men won a
decisive victory last Friday night at
the indoor track meet held ln Victoria. BUl Stott and Herb Barclay
starred for the Blue and Oold team,
Barclay becoming the new B. O.
champ, defeating Chuck CunnlftghSm
in the half mUe. The meet was the
largest ever held indoors in B. C.
Thc Blue and Gold team won seven
out of the ten events, and tied en-
other, showing wonderful form
throughout the entire meet. Each
race provided lots of excitement for
the large crowd, and a band In attendance did its part in making the
meet a success.
In the 50 yard sprint, BUl Stott and
Gordie Heron gave a wonderful exhibition of speed. Stott paced off
the distance in 4:3 seconds.
There were eight starters in the race,
but these two men pulled down first
and second places for Varsity. Owen
Bentley of Victoria finished third.
The Point Orey sprinters added another victory to their list when Joe
Roberts won in the 220. Bentley and
Rowe came in second and third for
Victoria. Bill Stolt, running for Varsity, caused some excitement when
he slipped and fell while taking the
first turn too fast. He recovered
himself, however, and continued the
race. The time was 29 and  2-5 sec.
In both the 50 and 220 yard sprints,
our men found it hard to accustom
themselves to starting on a cement
floor. It was necessary for men to
lay down on the floor, the competitors using their feet as starting supports.
Stewart Downs Addison
In the 440 it was agreed that they
would start in the conventional manner. Varsity copped aU the honours
in this race, Max Stewart beating
Victoria's crack runner, Joe Addison.
The crowd went wild during this
event. Don McTavish of the Blue
and Gold team finished third, the
time being 59.2 seconds; good time
considering it was indoor racing.
Varsity's men were certainly in the
pink of condition . Bob Dixon, coach,
gave them all a thorough rundown
before the meet.
Barclay New Champ
Herb Barclay piled up honour for
Varsity when he defeated Cunningham, B. C. champ, in the 880.   Herb
did the distance in 1.19 and 2-5.
The mile wasn't even a race as far
as Varsities were concerned. In the
13 lap event, both Barclay and Northcott lapped Victoria's last two men
just at tiie close of the race and Bar-

day puUed ahead to win, Northcott
securing second place. Finnemore of
Victoria ambled in for third. Time
was 3.05.
Victoria managed to win the relay,
which consisted of four 380-yard laps.
Their men were Addison, Bentley,
Rowe and McDonald and they traversed the distance in 2.22 and 3-5.
Our men were Roberts, Heron, McTavish and Stewart.
The Island City athletes also secured supremacy in the 80-yard hurdles, Joe Addison making it fastest
to the tune of six seconds flat, while
Haddon Agnew and Gordie Heron of
Varsity followed for second and third
places respectively.
The shot-put waa a clean-up for
Varsity, Jim McCammon heaved the
shot 44 feet 8 inches to put Victoria
in the shade. Haddon Agnew foUowed
up with second place and Victoria
managed to squeeze a third in the
person of Thompson.
Varsity's broad Jumpers were the
versatile Stott and Heron, BiU winning
after leaping 18 feet 4 inches. Gordon
Moore of Victoria came third.
The only injury in the meet was
sustained by J. Cousins of Victoria,
in the high-jump. He and Haddon
Agnew of Varsity were tied. They
were jumping off for first when
Couisns sprained his ankle, and the
event was called a tie.
Variety was afforded by the presence of teams from Cowichan and
Duncan. Those in the Cowichan Olympic team cleaned up pretty well in
the women's events. Boxing and
wrestling also took place while the
meet was in progress. All events were
run off snappily and after the meet
all the competitors took a swim in
the Y pool.
The Blue and Gold team on their
return has nothing but praise to offer concerning their treatment whUe
in Victoria, and they certainly were
elated at the size and enthusiasm of
the crowd.
And Last But Not Least
BUl Stott enjoyed his meals twice
on the way over. He amazed feUow
passengers by hanging over the roll
the entire trip. Several old women
were under the impression that he
was a travelling professor studying
sea-life. He may have been sick on
the way over but he made Victoria
look sick when ho got there.
There wiU be a meeting of the
Men's Grass Hockey Club at 12 noon
Thursday in Arts 102. AU club members are asked to be present.
