VARSITY HOLDS MAORIS TO 12-3 SCORE
LECTURES ON ITALIAN ART
AROUSE STUDENT INTEREST
That "Italian art formed the basis
of all succeeding developments In art
in Europe, such as the Dutch, French,
and English schools of painting" was
the reason given by Mr. Dick for discussing Italian art alone, In the series
of illustrated lectures he is giving In
Applied Science 100.
Bofore beginning his lecture prop-
oer Mr. Dick said that, in the evolution of society, art Invariably follows
commerce when a stage of surplus
wealth and leisure has been reached,
and, ln his opinion, as Canada had
reached this stage, theso lectures
should be welcomed.
"Beginnings of Italian Art to the
end of the 4th century" was the subject of his lecture on January 31st.
Mr. Dick stated that the Italian art
was undoubtedly based ou that, of ancient Greece and Rome. Although
no examples of Greek painting have
come down to us except hearsay, we
can tell their perfection from the Roman paintings, which must have been
modolled on them as were all Rome's
forma of art. The early Christian
paintings such as those found In the
catacombs were clearly similar to the
Roman ones, often being almost exact
copies of pagan works. The artists or
the Middle Ages, however, lost touch
with even these Christian paintings,
and their pictures were only saved by
being slightly Influenced by the Byzantine art from the Orient after the
10th century. This Eastern form was
noted for its richnes of coloring, especially in the useof a gold background;
and dignity in spite ot the stiffness
and formality of Its traditions. The
mediaeval art of Europe, however,
though its designs and colouring were
distantly simitar, had no dignity of
form and no richness in Its coloring,
being merely stiff snd crude from the
8th century to the 12th century.
The coming of St. Francis of Assissl
not only put a new spirit Into the
church but also into art. The church
of St. Francis lu Asstssi, built two
years after his death to commemorate
him, was "the cradle of Italian art."
For the next hundred years the grout-
est artists in Italy were brought to
paint the frescoes on the walls, and
examples of the art of alt the following painters are to be found on the
walls of this little church.
Pletro Vavnllinl was the leader of
a powerful school In Rome that still
had kept ln touch, to a certain extent,
with the classic traditions. Some of
his figures, as Mr. Dick Illustrated by
a lantern slide, had a very Jovo-Uke
aspect.
Clmabue of Florence was one of the
first painters to get an effusion of
real life Into his pictures. By mixing
yoke of egg with his paints he was
able to attain a greater range of colors than Is usual In fresco paintings.
His bright and rich colorings were
after the Byzantium style, but his
draperies were still rather stiff and
formal.
Duccio of Siena was the greatest of
these early artists except, for Giotto.
He and his school were noted for
their use of rounded lines and smooth,
sweeping curves. At this time the
church used the paintings of artists
like Duccio to teach the illiterate peasants the Bible stories, and thus one
of the works of Ducclo's that Mr. Dick
showed had around it and on Its back

BUCCANEER BALL
BOOSTS JUNIORS
The Jolly crew of the good ship
"Twenty-eight" Jndulged in a real
piratical revel at the Winter Gardens
on Wednesday night. "Hold, bad"
men and women with vHliaiious ban

Parade, Kaptain Kldd's Knper, Free

other delights ot buccaneers, down to
the Insi. Silver Slide at the change
ol midnight watch. The Jolly Roger,
emblazoned with the cryptic symbol,
"UK," flew over one of the most original ideas in class dances ever organized  by the  University.
The decorations were In keeping
with th" "Buccaneer all" announced
on the black programme, Red, orange,
white, and the notorious black of the
sea rovers for once displaced the traditional blue and gold of the U.B.C.
Everywhere were grinning skulls—on
the curtain, the lights, the tables and
even on the manly chests of many of
the more formidable corsairs. Red
and orange ship's lanterns, emblazoned with the ubiquitous death's heads
hung from the celling, casting a romantic glow on the cabin. Ancient
galleons In black silhouette were
dangling from tip arches. Bloodied
ribbons ol paper linked the gulleons
antl the lights.
AI one end of the room was a
model ol the stern of the good ship
'Tweniy eight," emblazoned with the
prevalent piratical colors, anil carrying a huge lantern over the stem gallery. Near il was the ultimate realization of every good (or had) pirate's
lifelong hopes—a treasure chest full

COUNCIL PLANS TO
RECEIVE COLLEGE
Monday evening the Students' Council held Its usual meeting, whon a
number of matters pertaining to the
University   was   discussed.
Mr. McWIlllams, as temporary sec
rotary, read the minutes of the prevl
ous meeting ami some discussion
arose us to the further entertainment
of the Maoris, They have been invited to a civic Rugby banquet on Sat
urday, after which they will attend
the Varsity dance.
Tho proceedings of the various organizations of the campus were then
road and discussed. Obviously, the
"spirit" of the Varsity must have received a new lease of life for then
are many new features: Golf now hat;
tts recognized place ln the University
sports. It has received the olllcla'
sanction necessary to raise It to a
minor sport.
Another Innovation Is the formation
of a new club—the Student's International Club. This organization has
been formed with the purpose ot fostering International friendship and
eliminating national and racial differences and prejudices on the campus.
Mr. Jacobs, Arts '29, indefatigable
worker, Is one of the chief advocates
of the club and he predicts that it
will be a worth-while organization.
A letter, the contents of which are
noted elsewhere, was received from
the Town Planning Commission com
mending the students for their fine efforts last, week. The girls received
especial approbation.
The request of the nurses for a
dance on either the 24th or 25th had
to be refused as two important
university functions are scheduled
lor these dotes: The Washington
Debate on the 24th and the Musical
Society's concert the following day
Another event that had to be declined
on the same grounds, was the proposal or the Glee Club for the College of
Puget to give a concert ln Vancouver.
This, It was proposed, was to take
place In March and was to bo spoil
sored  by the U.B.C.
The next Item of discussion wns the
entertainment of the visitors Iron'
Victoria. They are to attend a sue
cession of affairs — rugby games
basketball games, dances et al, Evi
ih ui |y i In- invaders from our sister
city are due to return home tired oui
lull   happy. ,
The Council, witli its usual fore
sight, is already preparing for the Mc
Kechnle  Cup games.
The Doc. Speaks
It Is a rare pleasure, for me at
least, to be able to say something
without fear of successful contradiction. And what I have to say
Is this: The Maori game wasn't
so bad. Experts say truly that
neither team developed Its football Into an art—not to speak of
the High Art displayed by the
All-Blacks of blessed memory.
But a common and untutored layman like myself will still maintain that, at the very least, he
witnessed a bully scrap. The
Maoris play football with understanding anil the heart also. They
play stronger football than we
yet do. But it wus a Joy to see
•he Varsity pack resolves Itself
quickly Into a line of three-quarters as a scrum would break up
Nexl time let It be "Instantly."
It. was a pure Joy to se the Varsity's tackling low, swift, dead
ly. II was very very gooil to
watch our defenses holding, as
they did so often, against assaults
ol an army of battering rains.
And ll fairly made one slug to
follow a Varsity offensive growing In confidence and momentum
every minute of the game. There
In still another game to play, In
fact   there  w|ll have  to be two.

VISITORS HELD IN SECOND
CANTO TO 3-3 COUNT
Home Team in Superior Condition—Tupper and Locke vie
with Pelham and Shorttand fer Honoura
Emblazoned ln lettors of Gold across the background of Royal Blue Standi
the name of the University of British Columbia. When the records ot great
victories go down In the books of history and the achievements of groat
rugby players and teams are recalled ln front of the family Are place, the
mere mention of the greatest rugby classic of all time will call forth the'
memory of Maori-Varsity game. When a simile for fight, determination, and
courage Is required, the mention of the manner ln which British Columbia-
Varsity put a supreme effort against the great team from "Down Under" wif?
suffice to satisfy the most critical mind. When tho dust of battle had cleared
away and the glorious Blue und Gold walked away arm In arm with the
menacing Blucks, tho greatest fighters that ever graced the historic Brockton
oval, could not help be proud of the way In which Varsity upheld the honor of
their team, country and university. They said that the Maoris would give
this university a 45—0 beating for our trouble, our answer Is a 12—8 ln terms
of unwon victory. The University of British Columbia Is rightfully proud ot
the fifteen sons of her Alma Mater who broke down a hypothesis, and gave
the finest exhibition ever seen in the Great West.
To pick out the men who played the
greatest games of the day, would be
like singling out a hero in the battle
of Thermopalae. Even In united
splendor there are, however, men
whose spirt, and play deserve no little comment, When
Captain Bert Tupper knocks on the
pearly gates and the good St. Peter
questions his eligibility to enter Paradise the mere look at his fighting face
and the recollection of February 2nd,
will make that good old gentleman
forget all formalities and fairly shove
him Inside. As if endowed with an Inspiration to lead the greatest fighting
team In history, Captuln Bert Tupper
showed that he has gathered more
than A, B, C while attending this
august school. Engrave his name on
the mythical list ot the greatest that
ever lived and you will be paying him
Just an ordinary compliment. Just
say, "Bert, this university Is proud of
tho way you led that team," and that
will be enough.
A little boy who came all the way
from Victoria to play for British Columbia at the half position, who answers to the classic name of Bill
Locke will go down In the story books
as the All-British Columbia half-back
---for all time. When Mothers croon
sweet lullabies to (heir babies tho
story of Billy Locke uid February 2ml
will send those little dears to sleep
with content and satisfaction that
they have heard tho story of the
greatest  ever.
If you ever want to write a panegyric and are stuck for a theme, if
you ever want to become a second
Milton among tho students of British
Columbia, take the theme of Phil Willis antl tho way ho playetl tho three
quarter position against the aboriginal
horde, and you can tuck your little
number nines In the best teak-wood
and feel thnt you havo at least accomplished your life work.
If Bertie Barrat should hang up hlB
little boots and say goodbye to the
game your fathers will still rave to
their little Juulor of the way the game
should be played as they saw the little
strawberry blonde handle the ball that
day.
To single any man out ln the scrum
would not be right. It was easily the
greatest bunch of forwards that this
university has ever cheered on the
time worn green of the park ovnl.
Write their names anywhere, but
never forget them, Mahon, Noble,
Sparks, Morris, Sinclair, Murray, Forrester, they nre not giants In any
sense of the word but they may never
he surpassed ns n forward "ggrega-
tion.
When you nre thinking of the kicking ability, Judgment, and tackling
ability, anil you are thinking of making up a three quarter Hue that will
hi tt ml the test of all others put in the
names of (Is. Wells anil Carl Ous-
talson. Real effort conies through
long pun lire Uustiil'snii may leave
this college In body but his rugby record will last for all time, Wells nt
live eights wus nil there and theu
some. He Is surely a great addition
to ii  wonder team.
Kuvc about your wing threes, talk
abjiut your Barclays, your Cookes and
all the rest of them, but do not forget
Howard Eaton. Keys on a typewriter
will not hammer out all that oan be
said of a wing man of the calibre ot
Eaton. Harris, the Maori manager
said that Eaton showod some real
class of the tour. He has not seen the
little tanned flash at his best. That la
the greatest compliment that he could
have paid Eaton. Eaton may not have
showed up as an offensive man due to
the teriflc pressure of the opposing
backs, but on the defensive play. God
bless him.
Now let us not forget that little flaxen haired boy whose grit and tackling
did honor to the name of Mclnnes.
Not until you have seen a man of the
size of Robinson racing toward you
can you appreciate little Mclnnes.
When you are out to rate Mclnnes
don't forget that this son ot Ireland
put up the greatest defensive backfleld exhibition yet given by a university player. When you look at the
score and then consider the tricky
style of kicking that the Invaders
used, take your derby oft to Mclnnes.
The game Itself is now history.
Promntly at 3 o'clock the Maori team
walked on the field and had tholr picture taken along with the Varsity.
They then approached the middle of
flic Held and gave tholr famous cry,
first to th:' grandstand and then to
the Varsity rooters. Immediately the
Varsity team came racing on. It la
a picture that one can never forget.
Varsity kicked off and raced tne ball
liy dribbling and passing rushes to
tlio Maori territory. Varsity appeared
nervous and a little disorganized Locke
at five-eighths seemed to fit In at that
position better than ever at half and
with Tupper and Wells at Inside they
smothered the backfleld rushes of the
visitors. There appeared some difficulty to stop the quick forward gamo
of the Maoris but it was pleasing to
note that Varsity was able to cope
with this by playing their threes closo
in. In this way a double defense system was offered to both the opposing
forwards and hacks. Tupprr, Oustafson, Locke, Wells and Barratt were
playing stellar defensive games. Their
condition was evident to all the spectators and earned great comment. It
seemed that the Varsity was outweighed considerably In the scrum but
despite that fact they easily held their
own. Only great co-ordination could
have produced that strength. For
eleven minutes the gamo surged In
every direction, The fast forward play
of the Maoris was conducive of tho
llrst score after a fast breakaway the
bucks handed to Gemmel and he battered his way to the touch line and
scored. They tailed on the major
points however rrom a difficult angle.
Score Maoris 3, Varsity 0.
From then on the Varsity settled
down, Thoy gave In the next few
minutes the greatest tackling exhibition that has ever h >on witnessed by
a local rugby crowd. Despite this
however the for wards broke away soon
after, and carried to the line and then
went over; Tatana and Manlhera were
the leaders In the attack but the latter

A GREAT GAME
It waa a groat (fame, and tho tumult and shouting of it is still to
be heard wherever students meet. Thu soore was just about nn indication of the play, tho Maoris' nine point margin pointing to o-rontcr
experience nnd skill. No one, however, will say that this showed
greater fighting powers; we arc satisfied that the mottle of tho
Varsity players was proof of tho finest stuff. From the first whistle
until the last, throughout every moment of the game we wore proud
of them and glad to be able to praise them in any terms. An unwaveringly eager determination, an unceasing offensive and defensive and withal a fine sportmanship won the admiration of the
opposition as completely as it delighted the spectators.
Superb physical condition wns evident in every piny. In particular, Varsity wns thereby enabled to curry its every effort to the
limit of possibility and to seize every opportunity for a gain. As to
the Maoris, we will always speak of them as men that played the
game and played it well. If they carried away from the game as
many pleusant memories as we did, we are certainly satisfied. Considering everything, the game attained the pinnacle of success and
will not soon be forgotten.
WHERE ORIGINALITY HIDES
We always praise originulity and bewail the want of it. Judging
from general indications about the campus there is a more emphatic
want of originality now than ever before. We have often wasted ink
on the use of slang, smoking in the halls, unuttructive fussing and
dull common room buffoonery, We ure inclined to think that if the
student body were us original as we are, that body would clothe itself
in sack cloth and ashes, und chant our praise as the advocates of reform, revolution, rebellion or anything else likely to arouse that
corpse which unwittingly has made us misunthropieully famous as
the prophets of unrelieved decadence.
We have set down the above as a preamble to a specific instance
of this want of originality which we decry. Kccently at a large class
meeting the question of fees was broached. One member of the class,
suggested that the class fees were too high, and ventured to hope that
they might bo lowered. Notwithstanding the meeting was open for
discussion, many members by significant gestures and vocal oddities
expressed their complete dissent from the opinion expressed Thereat one member^ who had stifticieut confidence in himself, attacked
the speaker's views on the ground that the views expressed showed
no college spirit. Instantly most ol! the women present, and scarcely
fewer of tho men burst out in ecstatic applause; so carefully and
immediately hud they considered the question in point Ihat they
could no longer be silent. This is only one instance of the Americanized band-wagon spirit of which so many of (his college's meetings
aro indicative.
Art Lectures
(Continued from Page 1)
small   but   vivid   pictures   of   scenes
from the New Testament.
Giotto of Florence was the genius
of this age. With the undeveloped
tools of his time he gave natural and
forceful expression to his work, aud
so his pictures are modern, not archaic to us. His scenes rather lack perspective, but his human and animal
forms show that they were done by
one who had studied nature directly.
This was especially shown by his picture of St. Francis preaching to the
birds.
Angelo Gaddl, In his work blended
the qualities of the Florentine and
Slenuse schools, using the strength of
the former with the richness of color
and harmonious Hens of the latter.
In summing up, Mr. Dick emphasised that each age has some quality
of Its own that is lacking ln the succeeding ones. These early artists had
no depth to their pictures, but the
rich and glowing colorings that they
used are not evident ln the pictures
of Raphael who had to use shadows
to get a more natural roundness to
his figures.
SECOND LECTURE
In his second lecture Mr. Dick
traced the development of painting
end sculpture from the beginning ot
the fifteenth century to the middle
of the Renaissance. To Glbertl he
gives the credit for Introducing Into
sculpture the use of landscape as a
background and to Mount olio for being
the llrst to model statues which stand
alone Instead of being a part of the
decoration of a building. The Illustrations used by Mr. Dick showed the
artists' tendency to break away from
the stiff, classical method of treatment toward making the figures more
animated.
In the fifteenth century a great, ef-
Ion was made, the lecturer continued,
to give painting something of the
roundness of sculpture. Masacelo was
especially proficient in portraying human figures. Andrea del Costagno's
"Crucifixion" marks the advent of the
small picture, while Paulo Uccello
was the llrst to paint historical scenes.
An example of the work of each of
these artists gave the audience a
gootl idea of the accuracy of detail
and tho ability of the painters to represent strong emotion. Fra Angcllico,
who rose far above bis predecessors,
retained much of the old classical Influence, Although his subjects are
chiefly religious, his pictures are
crowded with very life-like figures.
Ills frescoes and miniatures are especially fine.
Fra Fillppc Llppi was definitely a
Renaissance artist, as Mr. Dick phow-
ed very clearly. This painter's work,
and that of his immediate successors
shows a keen appreciation of human
beauty. Bernarzo Gozzoll's "Elopement of Helen of Troy" marks the be-
glnlng of the Interest In legendary and
mythological subjects. A number of
very Interesting slides showed the level ot technique lo be rising rapidly
from Mild onward. Better knowledge
of perspective, Hm careful blending
ol warm ami bright colors, and the
skillful use of light effects make the
work of the early Renaissance artists
realistic, gorgeous nnd powerful.
The Illustrations used by Mr. Dick
are very carefully chosen, It Is only
to he regretted that he has not tlmo
to dwell more fully upon the work of
Hie Individual artists.

Correspondence j
The Bdltor,
Dear Sir:
Consider this letter a roply to the
editorial ln last week's Ubyssey censoring the action of the Track Club as
regards to the Arts '20 Relay.
Dear Mr. Editor, I am afraid you
have forgotten the first principles of
a democratic Institution such as the
U.B.C. You forget that In a democracy, once the majority has finally decided on u plan of action, It Is up to
the minority to stand behind them In
tht! execution of It despite their personal opinions for or against It. It
Is surely obvious to you that In this
democratic Institution, all persons
paying Alum Mater fees ure automatically placed on tho registry of the
Track ('lub, should he signify his willingness to attend meetings. That Is,
I hose people who are Interested In the
future of the Truck Club, or mutters
It discusses that they are Interested
In have an opporlunity of attending
and voicing their opinions, You admit
your Interest In the course taken by
the Truck Club In regurd to last year's
relay and your censure of their policy
-yet you fall to participate in Its policy this year when you ure so particularly Interested in its future policy.
Those people who were Interested
enough in the Arts '20 relay to spend
one half hour at tho meeting were
present to voice their opinion. Some
were not in agreement with the plan
decided on by the Club, yet all but
four (those who wrote a letter advocating the change of course in the last
Issue) wore willing enough to submerge their opinions ln the best Interest of all. When 1 say "all" I mean
those sufficiently Interested to turn out
to the meeting. Those others, among
which I include you, have no right to
criticize the policy of the Track Club
now—this right was automatically forfeited, when they failed to turn out to
the meeting.
After all, Mr. Editor, tt is much like
crying over split milk, apart from the
fact that It is very unsportsmanlike,
it means that the only paper on the
campus is undermining the democratic
foundation this University is built
upon. This is far from the Ubyssey's
purpose, I think, and think that upon
u reconsideration of the matter you
will agree with me.
Hoping this letter reaches the columns of the next Isbue, 1 remain.
Yours truly,
Norman Brown,
Arts '27.

for what It is worth.
MERALOMAS DEFEAT
VARSITY SWIMMERS
If looked like a victory for the University swimmers on Wednesday
evening at Chalmer's Church pool, but
the Meiolomas snatched victory from
their hands by winning the men's relay race at ihe last, nilnuie. Hi lore
this race tin- pnim score was lil-liu in
ia\or ol the liih ersiiy. The final
score  was  Meralomas 05;   Vnrsit), til.
The I'niverslty women were seriously handicapped by the temporary
loss ol two of their foremost stars,
Nellie Melllsh and "Mldgle" Greenwood, through 111 health. They lost
on their events, netting but 21 points
against the Meralomas' 38. The men,
on the other hand, were able to field a
lull team, antl gathered 40 points to
the  Meralomas' 27.
Great. Interest was aroused In the
first event, the women's plunge, when
Honey Pratt, of the Meralomas,
plunged the length of the tank in 50
seconds. Margaret Lamb of the University then covered the distance In
39 seconds. In her second plunge,
Miss Pratt managed to cut down her
time to 41 seconds for the 50-foot
plunge, thus gaining r. close second.
The individual star of the evening
was tho aforementioned Honey Pratt,
who made 12 11 points in all. The
second highest Individual score was
made by Kettle, Tingley, also of the
Met'ttlama Club. She cornered but
one point less than her team mate.
The highest score made by any one
of Ihe University swimmers was H
points. This wns accomplished by
both Margaret Greenwood ami Reg.
Wilson. Don Mantle tied with Rettle
Tingley ln making 11 1-4 points; he
was the star of ihe men  swimmers.
A special exhibition event was put
on between events 13 and 14 on the
programme In which Johnnie Cameron, II. C, 220 yd. champion, swam
against. D, Pel ham, champion swim
iner of New Zealand, who Is visiting
Vancouver with the Maori Rugby
learn. The race was eight lengths of
the tank (400 ft.) and was won by
the New Kealandor by about 15 ft.
Cameron swam the side stroke, us he
usually does, while Pelham swam the
crawl, using a powerful scissor kick.

RIOTOUS TIME HAD
AT HIGH JINKS
The tenth anniversary of High
Jinks undoubtedly eclipsed any Frosh
Reception there ever has been for
quality and quantity and many will
testify for some months to come that
toe-dancing proved the order of tho
evening. Every available Inch of window sill or floor space was covered
with flaming demons, bloodthirsty pirates and a host of others all bent on
mysterious rites. Though none but
Varsity's fair maidens will ever know
of tlio gruesome orgies that take place
at High Jinks a fow rumours have Altered through to the outer world.
Tho Co-iQds, so wo are given to understand, after sacrificing one of tholr
number beneath the knives of the
nurses, held a Students' Council Meeting (1987). President Joanna Ail-
Over occupied the electric chair at this
Ideal meeting.
The Arts '20 llolay Course from Vancouver to South America via Greenland was adopted as suitable. Owing
to the large number of games scheduled for the coming week It was decided that no lectures would be broadcasted on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday,
Friday or Saturday. A request from
one of the two male members of the
Council to send their team of Huskies
to Harvard for the Tlddlywlnks tournament was refused owing to the Indisposition of the chaperone. As the
majority of the Council was due tor
tea ln Mexico the meeting adjourned.
The above is but an example of the
progressive spirit of the Co-Eds and if
any more of their advanced ideas had
escaped from Heather Hall it is certain that the sterner sex would realize
that the perfect Students' Council
should be composed only of women.
Wonderful punch and biscuits
proved a refreshing end to the mysterious gathering.

by a row of galleons.    On the deck
was the   buccaneers'   orchestra composed of hardy sea-dogs capped ln sinister bandanna handkerchiefs.
Right beside the deck waB the traditional barrel of "grog," advertised
oy the pungent motto "Yo, Ho Ho,
and a bottle of Rum." As with all
buccaneers this feature was enormously popular.
Nor was Caribbean Joe, Long
John Silver's parrot absent. He was
there lu the flesh, guarding the treasure, and assisting the orchestra's syncopations to the best of his ability by
screaming the nearest he could get
lo "Pieces of Eight."
Alter the "Buccaneers' Drawl," the
entire crew Hat down at moss In the
main cabin and ate the delightful substitutes for hard luck and salt pork.
In tho Unlit of tho black aud yellow
randies, thoy sang the old Bea chant*

and "Here's To Uood Old Rum," as
t   they  were still tailing the angry
Appreciation
The members of tho Maori Rugby
team wish to thank the class of Arts
'29 for the splendid entertainment and
good time which they had at the so
phomoro class party. The totem
poles which the executive gave to the
players as souvenirs will always be
pleasant reminders of a happy evening, and of the fine spirit of the University of British Columbia.

LETTERS CLUB
On Tuesday evening, February 1st,
the Letters Club was held at the home
of Mr. R. L. Reid, K.C., 1333 Paclflr
street. The paper for the evening.
"Samuel Pepys," was road by Mis?
Undine How-ay. It was enthusiastic
ally received by everyone present a?
a paper of outstanding merit. An In
teresllng subject was treated with the
wit, originality and perception that
would have caused Pepys himself to
say, "II do please me mightily." Miss
Downy gave a most delightful touch
lo fur paper by singing "Beauty Retire." the music of which was com
posed by Samuel Pepys. The discussion resulting from the paper revealed
a good parody on Pepys antl some interesting facts about Ills diary,
"L'ALOUETTE"
A most enjoyable evening was spent
on Tuesday. January 25th, ut the
home of Miss Etlllh I.itch. An amusing dialogue from "Les Kemnie* Snv-
anies" by Mollere, and a fable of La
Fontaine were ucted by different members of the Club. Miss Portsmouth
gave an Interesting and Instructive
tulk on her aoroplane trip from Paris
to London. The remainder of tho
evening was spent In conversation,
muse and games.
Gunner's mate, Les Drown, after
proving himself u real chanty leader,
took the opportunity or announcing
that, ou behalf of the Ancient, Mysterious and Terllllc Order of the Rolling Stones, he would present a box
of chocolates to Miss Jean Tolmie ln
accordance with the old time-honored
custom or choosing the most popular
girl in '28. Needless to say, the presentation was made with true piratical
enthusiasm.
After refreshments the crew lined
up to receive the spoils from the
Treasure Chest. Pirate hats, bandanas, pistols, axes and eye patches
were distributed by the Skipper and
the First Mate, while the plrettes received pearl necklaces and rings in
addition, ln a few moments the crew
was transformed Into the most hideous gang of scoundrelly cut-throats
that ever sailed the seas from the
Spanish Main to the Spanish Banks.
The resulting noise produced by the
distributed din-makers, the orchestra
and the parrot could only be heard to
be appreciated.
Pirates' Prance, Corsairs Crawl,
Longboat Leaps and other dances followed In succession until 8 bells
struck at the ond of the watch. The
merry pirate crow then departed to
their bunks to dream of tho next Arts
'28.
The officers of the good ship
"Twenty-eight" who held command
wer: Skipper. Phil Elliott; First
Mate, Mary Cole; Second Mate, Audrey Robinson; Midshipman, Annie
Taylor; DoaUwain, Doug Telford;
Chief Gunner, Doris Woods; Cook,
Frank Pllkington, and Cabin Boy,
Johnnie Currle; Deck Swab, George

Maoris' Manager
Givesjnterview
Some four thousand people were
treated to about us many thousand
thrills on Wednesday afternoon at
Brockton Point, when the fighting Varsity rugby squad held the famous New
Zealand Maoris to a 12-3 score. This
game wll go down ln history aa one
of the cleanest, but hardest-fought
rugby battles ever staged on a local
field.
It is not necessary to record here
the exulting play that followed. Let
It suffice to say that the University
team, although downed In the flrst
half, came back with an undaunted
lighting spirit In the second period,
and held the champion New ZealuuU-
ers to 3-3 score, And tho most pleasing factor of tho gamo was that In so
tense a struggle, no feellrg of ill will
or poor sportsmanship was exhibited
by either side. It was good to see
tho Maori grinning cheerfully after being tackled and thrown by two or
three Varsity men; and It was no less
pleasing to watch the good-natured
countenance of the Blue and Qold
player, as he rose from the turf after
an encounter with a heavier opponent,
Thla game, however, waa more than
au evidence of good-will, It was a
titanic struggle between two great
rugby teams, and experience waa
largely responsible for the Maori victory. Therefore it will be beneficial
for our younger team to profit by the
experience of tire Maoris, and to heed
the advice of the manager of this
world-famous team, namely, Mr. Harris.
When interviewed by this paper,
Mr. Harris said he did not wish to
convey the Impression that he was
criticizing our team in any unfavorable manner. In fact, he was both
surprised and pleased with the showing made by the University. "Your
team tackles well and shows evidence
of being well-trained," he said. "Moreover, your passing i« good. There
are, however, one or two ways ln
which I think your game could be improved. For instance, your inside
backs should make the openings Instead of leaving It all for the wings
to do. Your men seem Inclined to
play offside both in the scrum and ln
dribbling. But what I do not like to
see," he continued, "was the way in
which your men held to the ball after
they had fallen. For their own advantage as well as for the sake of the
game, they should immediately throw
the ball. In New Zealand such an offence Is penalized by a free kick;
such holding of the ball will cause accidents and rough play."
He went on to say that as a university our team had showed up well, and
could hold their own with any such
teams he had seen, with the exception
of one university in New Zealand.
The Varsity men who Impressed the
manager of tho Maoris most favorably
were: Barratt, Eaton, Tupper and
Noble. Shortland aud Pel)ham were
the pick of the A.'izacs.
Mr. McDonald, one of the touring
players who had watched the game
from the side lines, said, "Your team
plays a good tackling and spoiling
game. Your forwards gave your backs
good opportunities, but the hacks
failed to take them."
Shortland stated that as a half Barratt was easily the best prospect that
he liad seen on the entire tour. Nice
going,   Barratt.

The Maori Game
(Continued from Page 1)
wus directly responsible for the points,
They seemed to concentrate on for-
wurd play finding the Varsity team
lighter and easier to plunge through.
The major points were lost on a well
merited attempt and the score stood
6—0 for the Maoris. The game had
then progressed 23 minutes. About,
nine minutes from the end ot the half
Lockwood tho big hook In the Maori
scrum gathered and carried the ball
over, the major points falling.
Maoris 9, Varsity 0.
The first half was a lesson for the
Varsity team. They came back on the
kick off as a new team. Had they
stayed In the dressing room praying
for the consideration of all the gods
of rugby they could not have been a
more changed . 4m, About fifteen
minutes through the half tbe Varsity
team gave one of the neatest scoring
exhibitions of the day. A brilliant forward rush, a fine exhibition of Held
running by Locke, a wide opening of
the rest of the backs, a scrum on tho
line a criss cross backfleld run and a
score by Willis. The major points
failed by Sinclair. Maoris 9, Varsity 3.
The visitors appeared plainly worried that their forwards were falling
down against the superior fight and
rush ot the collegians.
They resorted to three runs in which
Pelliam and Barclay were particularly
outstanding. Hard tackling took the
speed out of them aud from then on
the formation of Locke, Wells, Tupper,
Oustafson, Willis and Eaton ran riot.
They forced the Maoris Into touch
twice and three five yard scrums
plainly had them guessing on the outcome. The surprising feature of the
game throughout was the very good
feeling thnt existed despite the hard
play. To hold this team of tourists on
a 3-3 basis for forty minutes ia In itself a real achievement. After a noat
kick and run game for half the length
of the Held tne Visitors went over
about fifteen minutes from the end on
a I'elhain to ([race piny that featured
most of the threes. It was a neat play.
From then on the game was a
classic, the Varsity rooters were proud
of their team's achievement, and to
tho Until whistle when the curtain
'went down they fought tooth and nail
to score. The whistle found them in
center field.

Correspondence
"Alma Mater Society" of U. B. C,
West Point Grey, Feb. 1, 1927.
Editor-in-Chief, !' Publications Board."
Dear Sir:
We beg to draw your attention to the following minute passed
by the meeting of Students' Council on January 31st.
"Moved by Mr. McWilliams, seconded hy Mr. Phillips that we,
the Students' Council, deplore the action of the editorial board of
the Ubyssey for devoting practically the entire front pago of the
edition of January 28th, to nn expression of personal opinion on the
question of the Arts '20 Relay. We feel that opinions of this nature
should be confined to (he editorial columns, mid should not take the
place of student news, and would ask that in future the board endeavor to give more expression to general student opinion."
Trusting you will give this the necessary attention, I am
Yours sincerely,
KATIUjKKN P, HAIItl),
See ret ii ry.
NMTOU'H NOTE—We fee! that it should not In- ncwMKiiry to
draw Ihe attention of the Students' Council lo the provisions of the
Publications Hoard < 'oust it ut ion, a document which was devised and
passed by ihe Council itself. But in view of the above letter, it seems
advisable to quote Sections B and C of the third Clause, which reads
as follows:
"Tho work of the organization (the Publications Hoard) shall be:
(b) To record and to advertise (hose activities of the student
body which shall, in tho opinion of (he Board be considered of legitimate and sufficient news value.
(c) To offer constructive criticism of ucts and conditions
affecting the student body."
Wo believe also thnt the Students' Council hus forgotten Sub-
section A, Section A of Clause 4, dealing with officers of the Publications Board and their duties.   The subsection says in part:
"The Editor-in-Chief shall be in charge- of the work of the
Publications Board. . . . shall contribute editorials and determine tho appearance and editorial policy of the paper . . . ."
We respectfully beg and suggest that tho Council re-read the
"Ubyssey" of January 28th in the light of its own legislation.
ADVANCE NOTICES
ON SOCCER GAMES
The Varsity soccer eleven will op
pose their old rivals, St. Andrew's, on
Saturday afternoon. The game will
be played at Athletic Park and the
kick-off Is scheduled for 2.30 p.m. This
is the only league fixture to be played
on the Mainland by First Division
teams next Saturday, so a record
crowd is anticipated. All Varsity supporters who wish to see their team
win should not forget to bo at Athletic Park no later than 2.30 p.m. on
Saturday.
Anderson, the famous Varsity net
guardian, will be unable to turn out
for this contest. However, his shoes
will be well-filled by the redoubtable
Millar. The others on the line-up will
be Crute, Shields, Robortson, Phillips,
Ledlngham, Wright, Gauden, .Baker,
Evans and Wadlngton.
SECOND SOCCER TEAM
Varsity Second Soccer enthusiasts
will see their favorites play a double-
header on Saturday. In the morning,
at 11 a.m., they will meet Victoria Col-
lege at McBritle Park; and In the
afternoon, at 2.30 p.m., they will oppose the Young Liberals from Sapper-
Ion at Templet on Park.
All  those  who saw  the  Varsity  Reserves play at Victoria gainst the ('ol
| lege   eleven,   will   undoubtedly   he   on
i hand   to   see   Ihe    I'nlversity    eleven
| avenge   Ihcir  tie feat   by   the  Capitals.
I from   all   accounts   the   Maori   rugby
game will  be a lame affair compared
to   this    Saturday    morning    fixture.
Moreover, the Reserves are not easily   satisfied   when    winning   n  game.
This   was   evident   not   long   ago   by
