XMAS PLAYS PRESENTED
IN THE NEW AUDITORIUM
Lighting Setting Effective.   General Standard of Acting
Above the Average of Recent Years.
To be privileged to see the November performance ot tho Player's Club
Is like being the dinner guest of an hospitable old lady. Her black uatln
dress rustles as she greets us, her eyes beam a welcome. A fine old dowager
Is she. Select, yes. Selection with her, aa with evolution, Is paramount.
Elite, undoubtedly. We may dislike tho old lady and her food may be
savourless and tepid, but It would be Impolite and highly tactless to tell
her so, Merely to sit ut her table Is counted an honour; would It be wise
to Inform nor that masticating her victuals is onerous? Better means of
staving off starvation may be found, but better society, never. Then, all
hall to our hostess, success to her dinners!
The four plays on the programme of the club this year make a rather
extraordinary collation. An old morality play, a farce ,a melodrama and a
domestic  satire,   compose   a  varied
compose a
menu. No fear of monotony here.
Even the most exacting and fastidious discrimination must And some
tasty morsel. It one does not like
farces, ono surely likes melodramas,
and, if, by any chance, one likes neither of these then an old morality play
can't fall to please.
By way of an appetizer for the epicurean viands to follow, an explanatory and Introductory speech was
given by the director of the club, Mr.
Wood. He enlightened the audience
as to the Inexperience of the actors,
warned everyone not to have too high
anticipations, gave a number of hints
about the content and authorship ot
the plays, and retired.
The Second  8hepherd'e Play
The first course was not exactly a
delight to the hungry. It Is difficult
to satisfy an appetite with a bite
every half hour. Similarly it was
difficult to get a definite Impression
from "The Second Shepherd's Play,"
a two-act play of five scenes. It is a
curious mixture ot horseplay and religion, aslnlnlty and devoutness. Its
Interest is more historical and academic than vital. The actors and actresses In this play had some very
difficult parts to play and conceptions
to put over but they did bo acceptably. In this they were helped by the
lighting effects which were very good.
The three shepho.'tl3 were somewhat
stiff but Mr. Marsh as Mak did well,
and Mitts Kldd as his wife was very
convincing.
The Man Who Married a  Dumb Wife
The Hccond play, "The Man 'Who
Married u Dumb Wife," hy Antitolo
France, was more nourishing. A brutally satirical farce, bordering at
times on the crude, it. purported to
be a "jeu d'eaprlt" but lost the flavour of spontaneity with its studied
atmosphere. France seems, In this instance, to have forsaken subtlety.
The Interpretation of this play was
very fair and was enhanced very much
by the characteristically colorful costumes. Miss Alihan made a charming and graceful Catharine. Mr. Jacobs, as the judge, was quite convincing, and the rest of the cast gave adequate support to these two.
The Luck Piece
The third play was somewhat more
substantial and satisfying than either
of the foregoing. Miss Barton as Annie; Mr. Brown as Albert; and Mr.
Howlett as Tom, made an Impressive
trio. The interest In this melodrama
is mostly concentrated on incident,
one man being stunned, and another
ferociously stabbed In tho back, i'er-
clval Wilde's play cannot he denied
the title of a thriller. The lighting
In this play was particularly effective.
The bloodcurdling silhouettes were
startlingly vivid.
The Fatal  Rubber |
"The Fatal Rubber" concluded tho
repast. As a dessert, this piece wuk |
rather flatulent, A curiously point-
lees play—fairly well-acted, effectively staged, but feeble. Domestic satire
certainly, but leaving the audience
cold, unresponsive and with a vague
feeling of Injustice that people should
come out and quarrel about cards before thorn. The costumes worn during this pleca wero very elaborate.
Well, then, wo have had our meal
let us bid our hostess good bye. Can
we avoid thanking her, shall we attempt to evade her? No,—that would
be more grossly offensive than to bo
outspoken and truthful. Besides her
black satin dress Is rather pretty, and
her eyes rather appealing.
(A. a.)
M. L. S. Addressed
By Dr. Milledge
British Columbian industries received a boost on Friday when Dr. A. A.
Milledge of the B. C. Products Bureau, led an open discussion at the
Men's Literary Society meeting.
The speaker first listed the basic
resources of this province. Agriculture, forestry, mining, fishing, hydroelectric power nnd manufactures
were each dealt with In turn.
Each industry had its own special
problem; agriculture was affected by
the lateness of tho crops and by discriminating freight rates. Forestry
and mining were restricted by lack
"ST Capital and "subsidiary industries,
Fishing suffered from unfair competition of foreign producers, who had
the advantage of national advertising,
tarlft'barrlors and freight rates. B.C.
industries were hampered by the
small home market and the importation of competing goods.
Dr. Milledge then dealt, with proposed remedies such as high tariffs
and legislative action. The chief problem, he said, was how to Increase the
population and lessen individual taxation.
The remedy lay In the hands of tho
producers themselves, by organization and the education of tho public.
The Importation of goods would be
thus limited. ' The appeal," maintained the speaker, "was based on tho
soundest economic and business principles. Preference should be given
to British Columbian, Canadian and
Kmpire goods, when quality and price
allow.
Increased demand for products increased their stile, which in turn increased output and brings down the
price and gives employment.
"The greatest tariff," said the
speaker in conclusion, "was not the
taxation of goods but tho psychological barrier."

FIRST PEP
MEETING
Great wns the crush,
Wild was the rush,
As the mere men tried to reach the
front rows In the PEP meeting last
Friday. You see it was rumored that
the Freshettes were going to put on
a special dance Item. They did. But
. . . . more of that later. Undergrads
will be pleased to learn that Berto
& Stewart Ltd. are Improving favorably In their stage performances, The
yells were almost good Friday ....
In fact, they were better than the
program. When it Is remembered,
however, that the Frosh put it on,
a little lenience can be shown.
To open the ceremonies, the Science men paraded the aisles, bearing
as their banner a dirty, greasy rag,
until they were rebuked by Gerry
Stevens, who told them to go and
sit down like good little boys, which
they promptly did. One of the Ag«
gles, who was present, gave it as his
scholastic and scientific opinion, that
they resembled greatly the genus
"Laughing Jackass." Very few of
those present agreed with the ad-
Jectlve, but otherwise, were in accord. One very notable feature ot
their conduct was the fact that they
sat throughout all the yells, which Is,
of course, very bad form. But to return to important things, the Pep
meeting continued with the president
of Arts '29 In the chair.
The first Item on the actual program was a song (sic) by two ot
the leading members. It was something about a farmer and his hay.
Jim Scott then made a little speeoh,
in which he Introduced the members
of tho McKechnie cup team, from
Casey the Shy, to Cap McLean. He
gave a short account of the history
of the game and gave as the motto:
"Play the game for the game's sake,"
(Continued on Page 2)
VICTORIA TRIP
The rumor that tho usual trip
to Victoria will he held this
year has become an established
fact. The program has not yet
been fully planned, but It Is
expected that It. will follow
along the lines of last year's
trip. The trip will start, on
New Year's Day, and full details will lie posted later. The
authorities, in order to ensure
good conduct on the part of the
students, wish to announce that
any student guilty of misconduct, during the trip will be liable to immediate expulsion from
the  Unlvorslty.
Very   Important   Arts   '26   meeting

Three Actors of Ability

Varsity Loses First Game
of the McKechnie Cup Series
U. B. C. Scores First, but Loses by 10 Points.   Large Crowd
Witnesses Game at Brockton Point.
Varsity and Vancouver Rep. opened the season in pursuit of the coveted
McKechnie Cup, now held by the In iter team. To all appearances, the city
men are determined to keep the honor, and, after tearing up the* turf at
Brockton Point on Saturday afternoon, gained their victory over the Collegians by a score of 19—9. The fine weather attracted one of the season's
largest crowds tc the game.
Bain Scores Twice
Bain sent Varsity off to a good start by scoring the first three points, and
the whole team endeavored to follow his example, but found their opponents
considerably more experienced.   Varsity's backfleld played to the wing quite
often, but In most cases wero forced
Into touch. In the scrum also, they exhibited some fine play, but the height IT a r» DADflAMCNT
of their performance was attained U. D, I, I AI\Lli\iTlLI11

Elusive Dummy Passes
Leroy caused excitement In the
beginning when lie gained forty yards
in a spectacular sprint. He passed
to Gwyther, who In turn was tackled
by Eaton Varsity kept their enemies guessing throughout the entire
struggle, especially by their dummy
passe*. Willis In pulling a dummy
pass gained ground with Louden, but
was tackled by I'renter. Tupper followed the example and passed to
Davidson, who sprinted some distance
before being tinkled hy Orlnunett.
Immediately alter the scrum lluln
rushed through for the first try. Kelly
was unsuccessful In the convert.
Splendid  Runs
Leroy evened up the score shortly
lifter, by speeding across on the right,
ylher fulled  lo convert.    After allot her   dummy,   Harry   passed   to   McLean   who   made   Vancouver's   second
try,  which  Gwyther converted.    Vancouver   gained   fifty   yards   after   the
kick-off,   but   Louden   and   Willis,   together   with   Sparks,    Davidson    and
Brock,   brought   the   ball  back  three-
rths of the  way.    Lawson  hurt his
shoulder nnd had to retire at half-time.

Politicians .orators and sensation-hunters of the University will be
delighted to hoar that plans are being
formed for the creation of a Students'
Parliament in the spring term.
This parliament la being organized
hy the Men's Literary Society for the
discussion of student affairs. Bills
will be introduced and flung back
nnd forth In true parliamentary style.
Vital student problems will be presented, antl rocommondntlons made
to the Students' Council.
As student opinion differs on certain points It is Inevitable that at
least two political parties will be
formed. Party platforms are being
built, and future M. S. P.'a are being
canvassed hy party leaders—cabinet
ministers are being given portfolios.
A general election will be held
early In the now year, In which the
student body will elect new members
to vacant and newly-formed seats.
All would-be M. P.'s of the Men's
Literary Society should get In touch
with Messrs. E. Dunn, H. Dee, F.
Lovers, Paul O, Murphy, F, C. Pll-
klngton, W. Taylor, or other members
of the organization. THE   UBYSSEY

THE VICTORIA TRIP
Varsity will uirnin make u New Yoar's invasion of Victoria.
The necessary authority Iihh boon hoc tired nnd arrangements tin;
being made. Responsibility for conduct nnd the (general carrying
out of nrrnngoim'tita will be tested in the recently appointed Vigilance Committee, with whom nil Ntiideiits are required to eo-opcrnte.
Detailed information for those intending to mnke the trip will, iin
in past years, bo posted before the close of examinations.
Apropos of tho invasion, the Ubyssoy wishes to make a parting
reminder, in this its last isMiie of tho term. When in Victoria, we,
the students of this University, aro the guests of ti college and of a
city. Wo should remember always not to tux the courtesy of our
hosts, nor to do anything, collectively or individually, which would
reflect discredit on ourselves ns guests.
Furthermore, while with the other birds in Victoria, 1J. IJ. C.
students should remember that they aro very much in the public
eye. Now, it is not our policy to advocate a general salaam, whenever tho ogre of Public Opinion is announced. But we should benr
in mind that there nro other and even more influential Philistines
than the fuddled demagogue from Alberni, men who regard this
University critically, but, unlike the aforementioned Parliamentarian, are waiting for u legitimate oxcuso to attack us. It is up to us
to sou that no such chance is offered.
Therefore, at Victoria, or anywhere else for that matter, let
us watch that our horse-play descend not to rowdyism, nor our rejoicings to revelling.
AMERICAN RUGBY AGAIN
Two editors on opposing downtown dailies have made tentative
passes, lately, on the American football controversy. Unfortunately,
both these gentlemen have busied themselves with an entirely secondary and rather inconsequent, phase of the matter, and disregarded
what is, to U. B. C. students at least, the most important point.
Within the University we are not concerned with the jingoistic
argument against American football. Tho case would not be altered
if the game were Abyssinian polo. The problem here is to follow out
the spirit of that maxim, "What's worth doing is worth doing
well."
In other words, are we going to half-heartedly accept the game,
or are we going to get right behind our team and give them the
complex and concentrated support that every American football
eleven demands?
To render our team ideal aid, we must be prepared for changes
in our student life.
First, there should be a more or less definite season for it, as
there is across the line. At present, what with McKechnie ('tip rugby,
first division soccer, and the several lower division teams we have,
from the standpoint- of the conscientious router, too many irons in
the fire. From the player's viewpoint, of course, this is the ideal
condition, and perhaps that is the tingle from which one should
look at the matter, But the fact remains that, it' we are to accept,
American football, we must accept the American system of play,
and that system leaves room for only one big game at u time, in
the smaller colleges at least. Full turnouts, unanimous interest, are
part and parcel of American rugby. That is why they concentrate
on that game first, and run off their schedules before cveu commencing their basketball season.
In the second place, it is a fact, but one that must be faced,
that money is very necessary in the playing of American football,
even in the smallest of colleges. Coaches are the order of the day,
and good ones require good salaries. Across the line, colleges have
stadiums, large crowds are attracted, and expenses are more than
met by gate receipts. We must be ready to secure a stadium as the
logical instrument for financing our teams.
Lastly, our team must be given the opportunity to practice, practice, practice. Time is even more important than money. Here,
at U. B. ('., with a high scholastic standing aud an entire absence of
the credit system, it is practicr'ly impossible for our athletes at
present to devote any more time than they are towards practice.
It follows, surely, that to play American football as Americans do
—and there are no Canadian teams to co-operate with us in playing
it any other way—some departure towards less exact ing time tables
or the unofficial credit in operation in I.'. S. universities for athletic
prestige, must he made.
Let it lit; understood that we are not seeking to slander American
football. It is a great game, ono that challenges bruin as well as
brawn. But, like all worth-while things, there is it price to be paid
for its possession. Part of the price at I'. B. C. would he the radical
and serious changes pointed out. It is time the average student realizes the principles at stake, so that a definite decision, coming from
the majority of faculty and students may he made, determining
whether or not we shall really play the Americans at their own game.
USE OF THE LIBRARY
Students must once more be reminded that the reading, or magazine, room is for reading only. Instead of using the concourses,
many find it convenient to retire to the comparative seclusion of the
reading room where some write, some study, and some carry on conversations. All these practices are rightly forbidden by regulation,
and from the point of view of deportment, are discourteous. For
students to urge as a reason for this misuse of the room, that the
concourses are often overcrowded, would be incorrect. It must be
admitted, however, that thorn is frequently far too much noise in
the study sections. Yet to use the reading room to avoid noise and
there to create noise is preposterous, and cannot be permitted,
Besides tho rending room, there is another matter of importance
to which the Ubyssey wishes to bring tho attention of students.
Now that examinations are at hand there wilt bo a great rush for
reference books. Home students will, no doubt, feci inclined to spend
all of their time in the library pouring over reference volumes. This
is unfair, not only to conscientious students, but also to tho delinquents, now miserably repentant. Finally, students are requested to
exorcise thoughtfulness for their fellows in the library by an ultru-
istie use of reference books and by making as little noise as possible.

In Debate Today
Another Arts-Sclouce conflict will
occur when Arts '28 meets the Engineers In an Inter-clans debate at noon
to-day (Tuenday). The chosen weapon for the duel la parliamentary language, but this limitation will In nowise lessen the keenest! of the encounter between the hereditary rivals.
The honor and prestige of both faculties Is at stake, as the subject under
discussion Is "Resolved that an Arts
course Is more beneficial than a Science course (to B. C. ).
The gladiators who will sally forth
In the sacred name of Arts are Messrs Masterson and Pllklngton. The
hallowed cause of science will be upheld by Messrs. G. Miller and H. Warren.
Artamen who want to see another
victory over Science should attend

look on another victory of Science
over Arts should likewise attend .

Pep Meeting
(Continued trom Page 1)
Miss Irwin then urged all consumers
of Arctic Cakes to drop their tickets
In the slot for the sake ot the Women's Union Building.
The younger of the Murphy twlnfl
then proceeded to sing the delightful comedy, "The Dirge of tho Frosh."
The chairman explained that the
names of the author and of the actors were unknown. The Murphy
children acted and looked absolutely
natural;   they  were a  great success.
The leading Item on the program
followed. Betty antl her green, but
not finite dumb cohorts, gave the
Frosh Interpretation of the Charles-
tun.    Tho  Science fellows  seemed   to

After the Pep meeting, Science
precipitated a fight with the Arts

furious. Among those damaged were
the president ot Arts '27, who sustained a painful Injury to his only

who lost his dignity.

"Mediocrity,'' suit! thu littlest editor, opening htir comimct, "works by
tho clock, tiili'iit hy thu nun-dial, and
genius not nt till." Her remark rals*
ed a vague question In my mind;
would It bo all right for me to continue Idling or must I forthwith start
work? I cannot onduro tho harrow
of doubt, having long since ronllxed
that
"He most of nil doth bathe in bliss
That hath a quiet mind,"
Therefore I asked the charming midget point-blank what she might mean
and was told In tho words of Shakespeare "the clock halih stricken three."
Gloomily I resigned myself to mediocrity, and prepared to sorve my term
of ticked-out time. I mnde no protest; the Persian had said "If a sage
offer you gall, drink It; but if a fool
give you honoy, spill It on the
ground." I found the draught bitter
In the extreme.
In a battle of tongues the littlest
editor, In common with all daughters
of Eve, can hold her own. Delightfully paradoxical! She may venture
with Impunity where you and I would
go In danger, for
"Life, like ice, la rather brittle
Full of risk for me and you;
But when you're young, aud rather
little,
There's    less    chance    of    falling
through."
All this brings us naturally to a
consideration of bobbed hair. In tills
connection I must mention that I
have abandoned my childish ambition
of being a railroad onglne-drlver, and
have since aimed at the occupation
of a barber, which, In my maturity, Is
considered preferable.
Bobbed hair has enriched literature
even as it enriched the knlgshta ot the
shears. As the first step In proof, I advance the Interesting case of Margot
Asqulth and her "Memoirs." Margot
(aa she Is popularly called) cut her
hair antl her discretion went the way
of her tresses; then she wrote her
book with her head In a "dls-treased"
condition. This is the true explanation of the writing of the amaslng
book which has been the "crux critic-
orum" of two continents, and by Its
diversion of public attention to itself,
was directly responsible for the d<>-
cllno and fall of Lloyd George.

heroine had hair cut after the fashion
of tho pages of the tlnys of chivalry.
When she nodded her Jioad "the golden, elastic bell pealed buck anil forth."
It Is also conceivable that tho vllllan
of the story wan tolled "No" by a
silent belle when sho shook her head
lu refusal. To call un ordinary head
ol bobbed hair "an elastic-rimmed
bell of shimmering gold" Is to break
tho altitude records of fancy, (A Brls-
banian line).
I am reminded now of the story of
the Cannibal King who complained to
his spouse of a post-prandlal drowsiness. His better half acrimoniously
retorted: "Doubtless on account of
the sweet girl grad-u-ate."
I suppose that later, the king finds
a pun-lsh-ment In that reason. How
much moro merciful ll would have
been, simply to lmve to'd nim that
he was merely overcome by the lass-
he-chewed.
All this villainy puts me' In mind of
a certain form of Japanese verse, of
which l submit an example for your
examination.
"Loathsome spider! Art thou thinking--
'Monstrous cripple! Only two legs
left."
You see how compressed the whole
thing Ik; se.entten short syllab'os Ir.
which the poet addresses the spider
and gets back an answer. It is a
very convenient sort of verse; It
should recommend Itself to many
whose poetic fire blazes but fitfully.
Enough must be said but not too
much; the suggestion should be
broader than the statement as for
instance:
"Christmas exams!   And    I've    not
crammed—
'Console yourself! Yule graduate!"'
Here endeth the seventh (and last)
lesson. It Is my hope (not vain, I
trust) that, as a result of studying
these short, spasmodic dissertations,
you, my readers, have bacomo better
men and women. In bidding farewell
I must say that I have always written "with levity towauls all (except
the littlest editor), and malice towards none."
Thursday at. 12.20 the Philosophical
Club will hold a general meeting In
room 104 of the Arts building, for
tho purpose of settling on plans for
the Spring term. All those who have
a genuine Interest In philosophy und
who Intend either to major or
minor in philosophy, are invited to
attend.
CAPITOL   THEATRE
Next week the Capitol presents
THE OARK ANGEL with RONALD
COLEMAN and VELMA BANKY.
This Is the first appearance of Miss
Banky before a Vancouver audleuce,
and from all accounts and the way
she acts In this picture there is no
loubt that she will please the many
movie fans of Vancouver.
The story has an English setting,
ind Is exceptionally dramatic and has
unusual originality. It concerns the
story of a man who has been blinded
as the result of the war, and the picture is novel in this respect, that the
hero remains blind, right through the
picture. Nevertheless, It i snot piteous, but on the contrary sympathetic.
This calls for some unusual acting
on the part of Ronald Coleman and
tho critics say that In thl splcture
he has certainly done very clever
work.

A Live
Town
HOW does your city impress the
man who arrives in train or boat
and takes his first glance up the street ?
Tho difference in first impressions is
often created by street lighting. See
the wonderful difference in those Vancouver streets which have new and
better lighting.
The same applies to your stores and
signs. They give the town a bright,
wide-awake appearance that stamps
it as a live-business city. And that is
what will make people decide to stay
in it.

Shownby Team
Varsity second team has been making s nemo for Itself amongst soccer
onthuslHRtn and tf It continues playing the brand of ball produced
against Empire Stevedores on Saturday, U.B.C. should havo a say In
division honors.
On Saturday the youngsters wore
eliminated from the Allan Cup series,
but city sport writers conoode them a
ralr share of the honors.
The soccer team worked the ball
dowu tho field In short, snappy passes
mil showed plenty of confidence. It.
was not a little surprised to find
U.B.C. a fast aggregation that would
not give time fur placing shots. Charlie Leek relieved many onslaughts by
'lie effective use of head and feet.
Gray snapped up a stray clearance
and oentred to Tom Warden; Oray
closed In, bagged the net with a clean
drive.
Forgle, the mainstay of Stevedores,
evened tho count shortly after, when
ho deflected a shot from right wing.
The "Stevenson-Gray" combination
puzzled the opposition from start to
finish and proved a source of worry
or the Stevedore goalie.
Varsity had a close call just before
the end of first half when the ball hit
the crossbar and rebounded In front
if goal.
After the Interval both teams wero
h rot tied at high speed. In a scrimmage lu front of Varsity goal, the first
Hvlslon leaders sent the ball in some
mystorlous fashion between the posts.
Another goal was registered by Forgle
on a mlsklck by a Varsity back. But
setbacks did not daunt U.B.C. for they
t'ought Just as hard as ever and sent
In some bullet shots that only a first-
class goal-keeper could save.
Tho fourth goal for Stevedores was
banged from outside the penalty area
by the inside left "Flea" stretched
to the fulness of his short stature but
misjudged the speed of tho ball. The
prettiest goal of the afternoon was
the result of a perfectly placed kick
off Stevenson's  boot.
Forgle was the star of the winners,
while for Varsity every man gave a
brilliant exhibition.
McKechnie Game
(Continued from Page 1)
The Reps, gained another try just at
half-time, mi.-idng the score 11—3.
Students  Make  Great Attempt
At the start of the second period,
Choato was tackled as he neared the
line. Leroy fumbled a pass and Varsity gnined seventy-live yards, hut Leroy got Ih" hall twain and cress-kicked
to CltOiite, who sprinted to within a
couple nl yards from Varsity's line
when lie was tackled hy Sparks. Vancouver lost a free kick and the playing from now on was well balanced.
Haiti added another three points now
with his second try. This spurred
on the students, who worked with all
their might to even up, but Grlmmott

SENIOR "A" MEN
BEAT ROWERS
Varsity's Senior A basketball team
hit their winning stride against Rowing Club on Saturday night. The
Canadian championship finalists
tripled the score on tho Clubmen.
The score ut the halfway mark was
1li—9 end the final neon* 3(1—12. During tho second half the Blue and Gold
squad gathered In 21 points and hold
the Rod and White clad veterans to
3 points. Their checking and passing stamps thorn ns strong contenders
for championship honors again this
year. BUI Turpin, the rangy, red-
haired graduate from Intermediate B
ranks showed up to advantage with
8 points. Tunny Butler shared the
scoring honors with Turpin. Tommy
Wilkinson played his usual brilliant
game at guard and also added 7 points
to tho score. As a matter of fact
every man showed up well. Helly
Arkley, formerly Varsity star, was the
high scorer for tho Rowers, scoring
10 points.
Line-up:—Drost, McAdam, Olson,
Lane, Arkley (19);  McKay.
Varsity: — Wilkinson (7); Butler
(S); H. Henderson (6); A- Henderson (4); Newcombe (3); Turpin (8);
Nesbltt, Hartley, Gordon.
Varsity Intermediate "A's" lost, a
hard fought battle to Ex-North Vancouver High on Saturday night on
the North Shore. At half time the
score read 6—8 in North Vancouver's
favour but Varsity started an attack
and soon had the score 10—8 In their
favour. Near the end of the game,
however, North Van. ran In two baskets and Varsity one, tying the score
again. Then North Van., just before
the whistle blow, ran in two baskets,
winning the game 16—12.
Varsity's Intermediate B toam went
down to defeat before the heavier
New Westminster Adanacs Saturday
night 16—9. Williams starred for
Varsity, securing 6 points. Alpen got
2 and Rae 1. The smaller Varsity
team found the going unnecessarily
rough at times.
MACDONALD CUP GAME
On Saturday the new McDonald
Cup serlen will definitely get under
way. In the Mainland section of the
draw Varsity play their old rivals,
Saint Andrews. In past seasons these
two teams have figured In the late
rounds of many competitions and in
fact, ever since the advent of Varsity
to the ranks of first class ball, they
have found the Saints a stumbling
block.
