Hears Report
Of Delegate
Reports on the International Student Conference which waa held during th« siwmor, and on the Pacific
Area Conference, were read at a
meeting of the International Relations Club on Thursday, October 8.
The first report, which was written
by Mr. James Gibson, former secretary of the club, gave a full account
of the International Conference
which took place at the University
of Michigan.
It was moved that a vote of
thanks be sent to him for his report.
A second report, read by Miss
Hockin, told of the Pacific Area Conference which was held this summer
at Bowen Island.
The business of the meeting included the admission of several new
members to the club.
"Rehearsals for the forthcoming
Thoth Ballet are proceeding apace,"
announces St. John Madeley, Grand
Scribe of the society. The complete
cast has been selected and is being
put through its paces by the production committee.
Costumes for the presentation are
in the hands of Miss M. A. Pilkin-
ton, who handled the former ballet,
"Anthony and Cleopatra," which was
staged two years ago,
This year's ballet takes for its subject the Greek myth of "Theseus and
the Minotaur." The scene will be
outside the labrlnth. As well as the
loading characters, a chorus of human sacrifices will be featured, while
a combat between Theseus and bis
bull-headed opponent will form the
climax of the production.
Letters Club
Hears Paper
OnFairy Tales
"Some night when the sun in darkness dips ,
We'll seek that dreamland olden
And you shall touch with your finger tips
The ivory gates and golden"—so
promised Jean Cameron to the paper
on Fairy Tales which she read at a
meeting of the Letters Club at tlie
home of Dean Bollert, Tuesday evening, October 13.
"Modern civilization and our Puritanic tendencies," she said, "have prevailed to banish most of our actual
beliefs in Fairies and their kin, but
nothing can take from those who
really joy in the "wee folk," the
charm of makebelieve.
Although we no longer regard fairies with superstitious awe we voluntarily suspend our disbelief udd "clap
with sheer delight when called upon
to save Tinkerbell's life."
Story telling is a very ancient art
and the stories told by the savages
differ very little from the more polished products of a sophisticated age.
Fairy tales are an important division
of all folk tales and have been numlod
down by oral as well as toy written
tradition horn age to age.
'The simplest and most workable
classification of fairy tales," said Miss
Cameron, "seems to be to divide them
into sagas and the German Marchen
or nursery tales,"
Before the time of Perrault there
were few printed tales. The earliest
collection, tho Mottl Piacevoli, was
published by Straparola, a native of
Caravaggio, to 1550.
, Straparola's tales oecnme tl*e origin
of the French Cantos des Fees and
furnished the basis of Perrauli's Puss
in Boots and several of Mme. D'Aul-
noy's tales. To Perrault we msy
ascribe the beginning of the Mother
Goose Legend.
In 1833 the Grimm brothers published their first edition of Household
Tales, a collection well known and
loved by every child.

pices of the Hudson's Bay Company.
Tickets for this W.U.S, Fashion Show
may be purchased from members of
the executive or the models for
seventy-five cents.
These models were chosen after
careful consideration, from three hundred girls. So much competition permitted those in charge to chooso only
those who are most suited to the
work. The following were finally
Dorothy Thompson, Dorothy Walk-
vr, Dorothy Colledge, Hilda Wood,
Jean Bogardus, Marion MacDonald,
Mary Thompson, Kathleen Bingay,
Betty Creighton, Alice Morrow, Josephine Hennlng, and Gretchen Vrooman. Those on the executive of the
W.U.S. from whom tickets may be
bought are: Dorothy Myers, Pat Harvey, Esme Thompson, Betty Jack,
Mary Matheson, Nancy Carter, and
Ethel Elliott.
This year the tickets for the evening
performance are the same price a3
those for the afternoon, seventy-five
cents. The model will protray the latest fashions in smart sport wear, fluttering afternoon gowns, and graceful
evening dresses. Soft music will be
played while the mannequins display
their lovely ensemble. Tea will be
served after the performance.
Special mention should be made of
the work of Dorothy Myers, who is
devoting time and energy toward
making the affair an even greater
success than last year. Naturally thc
show calls for much practice on the
part of the models; the executive,
too, are exerting themselves to swell
the Women's Union Building Fund.
Women of the University should show
their appreciation of these efforts by
turning out in full force to the performances. As there are two displays
there is no excuse for not attending.

Jacob's English, Celtic and European Folk tales must not be, forgotten.
"Among Japanese fairy tales," said
Miss Cameron, "there are some of unusual beauty and suggestiveness,
which reflect the characteristic love
of the Orient for everything exquisite and perfect both in harmony and
Ireland too has been the birth place
of countless original fairy tales. Modern Irish poetry presents the Irish tradition in a simple and graceful form.
"Come away, O human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand
For the world's more fun of weep'
ing than you can understand.'1
So sings William Butler Yeats.
"Hans Anderson was a genius of
modern fairy literature. In literary
form of the greatest simplicity he presents the whole tapestry of life, and
without suggesting a moral, tells all
he has experienced in life to simple
concrete imagery that a child can appreciate."
"In Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland are grave nonsense, absurd
puns, mock logic and cheerfully fantastic happenings which make it a
classic among moderns."
Tho desire for simplicity to an advancing and changing civilization has
called forth many modern "fantastic"
tales ranging from the delightful nonsense of Alice in Wonderland to the
profound seriousness of The King of
the Golden River.
"The idea of fairy folk with dresses
of rose petals, golden tresses and
starred wands is one of comparatively
modern origin deduced by a people
no longer fearful of the fairies."
Chaucer speaks of a "land fulfilled
of faerie." Spenser elaborated fairy
ideas and subsequent poets added to
the tradition. "The mythology of the,
people as presented in Shakespeare
reveals the mischievous Puck at work
teasing the dairy maids and hopping
In the old gammer's bowl in likeness
of a roasted crab." The poet has not
moulded this conception to suit himself—he has clung to the traditions of
$he common people.

Scales Peaks
On Trip
By Michael Freeman
Ten members of the Varsity Outdoors Club assailed and conquered
Sky Pilot and the Ledge at the
top of Britannia Valley, Howe Sound,
during the Thanksgiving week-end,
October 10-12.
Taking the Union Steamship "Cynthia," on Saturday morning the hikers reached Britannia Beach shortly
after midday. Here the skip was
taken up an incline which rises 1800
feet In half a mile, to the terminus
of the elertrlc railway. The. skip consists of a flat car on rails which Is

e the upper town that
hikers first took to the
tog up the valley for an
half they finally reached
Utopia Lake, the upper reservoir for
the water supply for Britannia mine.
Here camp was pitched for the night
and most of the party slept out in the
open in their sleeping bags.
After a sumptuous breakfast the
mountain climbers commenced the
day's hike. Ufopia Lake lies in a basin at the top end of Britannia Valley,
surrounded on three sides by mountain ridges, which rise abruptly for a
thousand feet or more. The peak of
Sky Pilot could be seen from the
lake, rising behind and above the
north ridge of ,the valley,
After an hour's steep and heavy
climbing the hikers reached open
country on the top ot the latter ridge.
To ascend Sky Pilot, it was necessary for the parjy of climbers to cross
the South face Of the peak at the bottom of the cliffs. This was accomplished by following short ledges
which gradually* rose to the East side.
Roundirig the South East shoulder,
the hikers had a marvellous view of
Garibaldi Mountain fifteen or twenty
miles due. North. Twenty minutes
later, after climbing over a series of
step-like formations' on the Bast face,
the Varsity hikers gained the summit
of the peak.
Lunch was eaten by the Party at the
bottom of Sky Pilot. Crossing a broad
shingle chute the refreshed hikers
soon reached the base ot the Ledge.
To climb this peak first a long rork
slide had to be ascended which lead
around to the East face. This connected with a narrow ledge that rose
diagnally across the South cliff to
within a hundred feet of the summit.
The rest of the ascent consisted of a
fairly steep incline, which was strewn

Five Year Plan
Starting Point
Says Prof. Day
"The Russian Five Year Plan Is not
an end in itself, but rather a jumping
off point for further planning and development" was the gist of an address
given by Professor J. Friend Day on
"The Economic effects of the success
of tiie Russian Five Year Plan on
Canada and the United States" before
the Association of Professional Engineers.
In tackling a subject of this kind
Professor Day stressed the Importance
of the history of .Russia prior to the
formulation of this gigantic scheme.
He said that Russia was a vast area,
similar in many respects, in elimnte,
geographical relation to the markets
of the world, and produce, to the continent of North America taken as a
whole. The westernization of this almost Immeasurable area had been
deliberately held .back by the policy
of the Czars, because they believed in
the possibility of the development of
a distinctive Slavic civilization. He
also stressed the fact that after the
war, Russia had to build Up her economic structure from virtual ruin,
while she could not obtain credit
abroad; she was trying to build up,
under a condition of economic blockade, a trade machine suitable for competition in International trade.
In 1921, Lenin, one of the greatest
men of modern times, established a
new economic order: that is, he abolished private property rights, and
made trading a governmental monopoly, said Prof, Day. Lento, however,
saw the folly of a rigid enforcement
of this policy, and allowed trading for
profit within the boundaries of the
country, and recognized the rights of
private property to fact, If not to
theory. The effects of allowing internal trade to be carried on with the
object of obtaining profit, were very
gratifying, but it was soon realized
that these traders were getting too
much power, and so a policy of liquidation Waa Inaugurated. "It la rather
interesting to note that In Russia the
word ^liquidation' has a peculiar
meaning—there it means 'to take
away all a man's goods and then put
him up against a wall and shoot him
if it is considered necessary," he said.
Their program included mining.for-
estry, electrical engineering, industry
general, and agriculture. Their difficulties were the Slavic attitude to
labor, the innate dreaminess of the
Slavic outlook, and tne tremendous
will power necessary for a practical

Debates Union
Is Changed
A meeting of all those Interested
in public speaking and debating was
held during the noon hour on October 8 In Arts 104. Mr. Milton Owen
was chosen as temporary chairman
of the meeting and Mr. Prank Christian as secretary.
The purpose of the meeting was to
dissolve the former Debating Union
and to replace it with the University
Parliamentary Forum. It was moved
by Mr. Semple and seconded by Mr.
Ladner that a letter be sent to the
President of the L. S. E. from this
meeting requesting that the Debating
Union be dissolved and be replaced
by the University Parliamentary
Forum, the executive of which Is
yet to be chosen. The motion carried.
It was further decided that a temporary committee be appointed to arrange for the first official meeting of
the Parliamentary Forum. On this
committee of five members are: Miss
Walker, Mr. Beckett, Mr. Christian,
Mr. MacDougall and Mr. Lando. A
permanent executive will be chosen
at the first meeting of the Forum.
Cleveland Resigns
As Junior Member
OnReturn to U.B.C.
Terminating his brief career as Junior Member, Howard
Cleveland resigned at a meeting of Students' Council on
Wednesday, 14th. At the same meeting it was decided that
Arts must pay for the consequences of the recent Arts-Science
rio't, being the attacking faculty. The requests of the Tennis
Club and the Big Block Club for permission to hold dances this
term was refused.
A grant of $6.00 was made to the Agriculture Club for tha
Jmrpose of sending two teams of three, men each on a dairy-
udging contest down the Pacif c Coast.
» Discussion arose as to whether this
was strictly a student function, since
the work was more or less eurrlcular.
It was concluded that these teams
were, to be considered on the same
tooting as debating teams. In the past'
they have done well—winning first
prize four years ago and also in last
year's contest,
A prolonged discussion was held on
the subject of fixing a date for tha
Arts Ball, opinion being divided on
the question as to whether Friday or
Saturday is the more suitable night
for this function. No final decision
was reached. The matter will be put
before the Alma Mater Society at a
forthcoming meeting. .v
An application from the Ex-Varsity
English Rugby team to use the Gym

Scenes at K.H.S.
Prove Popular
Presenting a series of scenes from
Shakespeare, a group of English actors
entertained under the auspices'of tha
L.S.E. at Kitsilano High School Auditorium Tuesday night.
The company, composed of Leslie
Manners, Jessica Dale-Lee, Marjorie
Hansen (pianist) and Maureen Grute
(dancer), showed remarkable versatility, all the Shakespearean roles being
taken by the first two.
The Morocco Casket scene from 'The
Merchant of Venice,' a scene from
Hamlet combining three of the great
soliloquies with Hamlet's reviling of
his mother, Antony's oration over the
body of Caesar, Shylock and Portia
in the Trial Scene, the encounter of
Jacques and Rosalind in 'As You Like
It,' and excerpts „ from 'The Taming
of the Shrew' were the parts selected.
Leslie Manners was at his best as
Petruchio in 'As You Like It,' His
Shylock was also an excellent portrayal, and his Mark Antony was very
well done. As Hamlet he gave a good
interpretation, though in appearance
he fell short of the ideal.
Jessica Dale-Lee proved somewhat
'stagey' as Portia in the Casket Scene,
but very capable in the Trial Scene.
She carried her other roles well, especially in 'The Taming of the Shrew.'
Between scenes she sang 'Sigh No
More, Ladies,' 'Mistress Mine, Where
Are You Roaming,' and 'When That
I Was a Little Tiny Boy,'
Maureen Grute gave two dances,
'Roman Dance' and 'Humming Bird.'
The latter was executed with the
more grace and poise.

testifies to the type of men and women who
will spend their vacation at this institution.
As concrete evidence of their desire to help
in solving the many problems which confront
the University, the students of the 12th Summer Session, recently concluded, provided the
funds for one of the new tennis courts which
made its appearance during the long vacation.
This is the first time that the S.S.S.A. has
found it possible to make a gift to the University, but we are told that the association is even
"'" now considering a present to be made at its
13th session and expects to make the donation
an annual event.
A closer contact between students of the
two sessions is sought by the S.S.S.A. and at
its annual banquet representatives of the
A.M.S. and the Alumni have been honoured
guests for the past two years. We believe that
such.contact would be of material benefit to
the University as a whole and we hope that regular students will not be backward in doing
anything which may bring into closer union
the students of the two sessions.
"We Want Moosic"
And we've got it!
At the first Pep Meeting of the session, on
Friday last, a real Varsity song was put across
with a bang by its author and his whoopee-
making band.
The Varsity's last effort in the way of Pep
Meeting rallyingvcries was a rather puerile plagiarism of a movie theme-song—and was duly
received with a coldness which really did
credit to the much-questioned culture of the
student body.
A moment's perusal of the back pages of
the Student Handbook will show that there is
a dearth of good songs from any source—our
supply, as compared with the copious compilation of the Toronto Varsity Song-Book, being
pitifully small. Of locally written lays there
are almost no popular examples,—"Alma
Mater" being classed in a somewhat different
"Hail, U. B. C." shows signs of gaining instantaneous and ample popularity. Varsity
needs a good song badly, and Harold King has
adequately supplied the want.
Although it has one of the smallest of all
standing armies among the great nations of
the world, the United States last year spent
more than any other nation on armaments.
Other nations spent for arms in the order: Soviet Union, France, Great Britain, Italy Japan,
India, Germany, Spain

Fellow The answer is in the negative; foren-
Co-ops sic contests, like games, are essentially co-operative. The purpose of
athletics is to provide exercise and develop
sportsmanship. Victory and defeat are incidental. Those who make them primary considerations adopt a distorted point of view—
the 'cut-throat competition' attitude. Similarly
in debating
I think that the Yes-They-Think-So gentlemen would support me in the opinion that
competition is only desirable when it serves
the ends of society as a whole—when it is constructive in nature, when it stimulates cooperation, when it is not productive of material
or mental harm.

On Tuesday night an audience of unimpressive size, including some students, witnessed
the presentation of scenes from Shakespeare
at Kitsilano High School Auditorium,
The under the auspices of the L. S. E.
L. S. E. I did not expect great art, nor uid
I witness it; but it was a most enjoyable evening. Of the small English company,
two actors took all the Shakespearean roles.
Leslie Manners as Hamlet, Shylock, Mark Antony and Petruchio was particularly interesting, and played the parts well. In some of the
exclamations and remarks he dropped into ordinary, conversational tones; otherwise the
usual declamatory style prevailed.
These intentional lapses seemed to me effective, and I wondered if declamation could be
dispensed with almost entirely in Shakespeare.
Some of the plays have been 'modernized,' I
know, as regards fashions and probably in delivery as well. I do not think that I would like
the plays in modern costume, but less declamation might be an improvement. Possibly the
Players' Club will try a Shakespearean experiment sometime.
L. S. E. affairs often suffer from lack of
patronage. A mere handful, for instance, heard
the fiery Porto Rican debaters last year. Admission to such events is low, and many think
nothing of spending twice as much, and more,
on talkies, dances and games. Is it possible
that most students are too stupid to have voluntary intellectual, cultural and educational
When the L. S. E. sponsors an entertainment, it deserves support. Lack of that support indicates a sad state of affairs and shows
that students are not taking proper advantage
of the privileges and opportunities provided by
university life. Lack of that support, indeed,
has implications so serious that the Council
and other executives should feel bound io
grapple with the situation in a vigorous and
constructive way. However, it is as yet too
early in the year to be unduly pessimistic in
this regard.

starving of the people In order to accomplish their alms.
Professor Day expressed his great
diffidence in assuming the prophetic
mantle, for he was laying himself
open to criticism at a future date in
case his forecastings failed to materialise.
In 1925, stated Mr, Day, Stalin attacked Lenin's new economic policy,
and attempted to get rid of the traders
by two methods: the first was exceedingly heavy taxation, and the second,
more effective still, banishment.
The actual commencement of the
gargantuan plan for the rehabilitation
of this vast country was in October,
1927. Its objects are the industrialization of Russia, and the complete
liquidation of profiteers. This was
Lenin's idea. The task the Russians
set for themselves was the re-creation
of capital resources out of the forces
of labor and raw material—it amounted virtually to an imposition of wartime conditions on the masses. Consumption goods were, practically
speaking, rationed, and the energy of
tho country was turned with all possible force upon the output of production goods, that is, factories, machinery, etc. The original figures,
which have been revised from time to
time, for obtaining their objective
were as follows: first year, an increase
of 16.7'd', second year,' 13.1^, third
year 13.8%, fourth year 10.5% and in
the final year the percentage increase
was to be the same.
The Big Block Club will hold a

You have my sympathy and I can
quite understand both your difficulty
and your disappointment. I am afraid
you are right and the rabbit is
wrong. It is most unusual for a
quadruped to have five legs. It is
also very selfish. Many rabbits have
only two. Are you sure about the
fifth? You haven't counted In it's

hardly do that with an extra leg,
could you? It Is certainly odd—In
fact, almost Indecent. There seems
so little one can suggest. You might
try boring a hole in the extra leg
with a brace and bit. Then you could
hang it up on a hook. This would
save the labor of building another

The True Story of the Origin of the
Frogs in the Lily Pond,
by Maybelle McGillicuddy
Once upon a time there was a
lonely Freshman, so lonely and deserted by all. Even his fellow classmen shunned him, for after all his
best friends would not tell him. It
was the custom of this little boy to
wander throughout the campus,
thinking .about life and what he
would do when he grew up. Other
Freshmen could go about having
their noses pulled by prominent professors, or being compulsorlly bathed
by philanthropic sophmores, but not
he. He was a thing apart just like
the Science faculty.
He gradually grew bitter, and more
and more homesick. He determined
he would make someone speak to
him. He wended his way to Ridington castle thinking in his ignorance
that this was the bast place to find
students and on the way he spied a
man approaching. The man was
talking to himself. He was talking
about a woman called Jane.
It was now or never.
Our hero stood in the path of the
man. Re stopped him. He shouted,
"Speak to me!"
The man threw him in the Lily
The Freshman was not old enough
to swim and so he perished. He
would have remained in the pond
with the lilies and the lunch papers
Just like all Freshmen who are
thrown In annually. But his case
waa different. He was innocent of
crime and so the bearded god of the
Castle took pity on him and changed
him into a frog. But in the transformation the Freshman lost every
thing except his color and now he
sits spouting his wrath at tha world.
But the god of the Castle.realised
that the Freshman would be lonely
In the lily pond, so, still being in a
genial mood, he went to the Caf.,
picked up the first Freshman he trod
on, and, taking him under his arm,
carted him over the campus and deposited him gently but firmly in the
sacred pool. He too became a frog.
He too remained green. He too spouts
his wrath at all and sundry and his
fellow-frog In particular. And there
they are and will remain until the
next Arts-Science battle demolishes
the ornaments in the Lily Pond.
We're so proud of ourselves now that we no longer gaze
with awe and wonder at the Editor-in-Chief of our wuthy joinal.
Last issue we had our page all set up by seven-thirty P.M. This,
in itself, is something to toot our editorial horn about. No, we

The News Manager just asked me how we can apologize to
a column. If you don't know how the following story will enlighten you.
Once upon a time there was a Sports Editor; he was a very
sporty Sports Editor. Accordingly, he never looked where he
was going, and one day bumped into something. After apologizing profusely, he found it was a telephone pole. This story is
purely theoretical. If, however, the pole had been a column,
he would have apologized to a* column. Q. E. D.
You, Too, Can Learn This Trick At Home
The above picture shows a man performing one of the many parlor
tricks that are explained in the new series of articles written by Arthur
Mometer. "Anyone can be popular with the aid of my little set of booklets,"
opined Mr. Mometer in an Interview granted to the press, "but not without
a certain amount of practice."
The trick shown here Is very complex, and requires a vast amount
of piano wire. The feet are suspended from any convenient chandelier with
the aid of the said wire. A belt provided with a loop Is the next requisite.

There is a newcomer to the pages of the "Ubyssey" who is
a stranger to many. I refer to Mr. Zilch, The appearance of
Mr Zilch's name on the Muck-a-Muck page will not be tolerated. However, in this case it is a necessity. We, the disciples
of Shrdlu Etaoin, wish to state our case.
First for the benefit of the Freshmen, I will relate the oft
told legend of Etaoin and his deadly rival, College Humor. At
the top of this page in the right-hand corner is the smiling face
of Shrdlu Etaoin, Muse of Muck. On my left, the boy with the
pickle fork, is College Humor. Below the title of "Muck-a-

yourself) of Shrdlu's warriors and 31 devils. The 18 red-skins
with their tomahawks are getting the best of it; and the forces of

Down in San Quentin, California State Prison, the inmates
can enroll as extra-mural students of the University of California. And of the 5000 convicts, over half of them are taking
advantage of this privilege.
And they pay no fees. Next fall, if I fail to return to
U. B. C, don't think that I have fallen by the wayside and left
college for good. Oh no! I'll be down in my private cell in San
Quentin with a slide-rule in one hand and a philosophy book
in the other, trying to get something (if a college education is
something) for nothing.
It ought to be easy to get board and lodging down there.
The best plan, I believe, would be to allow myself to be arrested
for stealing. If the judge acquitted me, I could shoot him. If
I was acquitted for doing that, I could appeal the case. Eventually I would find myself in a cell, perhaps a padded cell. And
then I could get my free college education.
I can only guess what courses are popular this year at San
Quentin. I should imagine, since hundreds of the prisoners are
laboring daily among the rocks, that the class in Geology would
be large. Ex-bootleggers, of course, are studying Organic
Chemistry; bank bandits are learning Economics and the business of Banking. Gangsters are probably swotting at Group
Men doomed to die in the electric chair are probably given
a chance to enroll in a short course in Mathematics or Physics.
After studying Maths, until the date of their execution, they

the essentials of Physics into their heads they would learn all
about electricity and its properties and they could go to their
death with Ohm's Law on their lips. Ed. Note:—How come

Good afternoon Boys and Girls.
This is Uncle Rufus speaking to you,
and bringing the program sponsored

Madeley gives all the credit to his

of swimming costume," stated Mr.
Madeley, "I would most certainly
have won the contest." As it is Mr.

Varsity Victorious
Over Newcomers
In Athletic Meet
Varsity upset all the dope when they scored a decisive victory
over the Frosh on the new oval Wednesday afternoon. The new
track wej somewhat soft and as a result the times were not exceptionally good. But two records fell, Haddon Agnew throwing the discus 123 feet and the girl's eight-a-side relay team covering the half mile in 1.59 ,-.,,.*
The sprints uncovered a new star in the person of Bill Stott,
Who Showed real class in copping the 100 and 220 dashes from
such men as Bob Osborne and Max Stewart. Miss Esther
Paulin took away honors in the girl's division, winning both the
60 and 100 yard sprints in handy style. Haddon Agnew, a
freshman, won the javelin, shot-put and discus. Harry Prevey,
exchange student from Alberta, arrived when the jumps were
half over, but succeeded in'capturing the event with a jump of
5 feet. Jumpers found the runway much too soft, as it had been
prepared but one hour before the start.
Prevey and Gordon Root could not
conie to a decision In the pole vault,
and had to split the points. Tne last
track event of the day was probably
the best. Max Stewart, (who hasn't
befn to Varsity for seven years),
Bob Osborne, and P. S. Campbell
tore down the stretch In the 400-yard
race to finish practically In a dead
heat. The judges caught them In
the above order.
A fair-slxed crowd attended, everyone being unanimous in the opinion
that the new oval should do much
towards reviving Interest In track.
Col. Wilkin and John Muter acted aa
judges. Bill Lucas was timer, and J.
Irvine fired the gun. Ralph Thomas
was general supervisor, and was assisted by Bob Alpen. These boys
kept things hustling and each race
wis run on schedule.

After two hard games over the
week-end, Varsity's .Senior Soccermen emerged with a draw, a loss,
and a number of injuries. Saturday's game at Cambie Street saw
the Chinese Students.victorious by
a 3-0 scorr, while Monday's game
with Pt. Oiey United at Kerrlsdale
resulted In a 2-2 draw.
The first game was extremely fast,
with a hard ground and a light ball.
Varsity kicked off against the sun,
and continued on the attack, but the
forwards could not get their shots
on goal although they managed to
force several corners. Play next
switched to end rushes on tiie part
of both teams, and the Orientals
scored their first two goals, one of
them being via the penalty route
when the Varsity goal-tender pushed
an enterprising Chinese forward out
of the way. Soon after the interval,
the sons of the far East added their
final counter, and a belated blue and
gold rally failed to reduce the Chinese margin of victory.
The game on Monday was also
played at top speed, with the Varsity
side showing to far better advantage
than on Saturday. Dave Todd got
away soon after the opening whistle
and put his team one up when he
drove in a hard shot for the first
tally of the game. Pt. Grey equalized shortly after however, with an
unstoppable drive which struck the
underside of the bar. Play was fast
and fairly even for some time, when
Dave Todd again broke Into the scor-
uuusiin   v«/. in* °°iunm by converting a penalty
Women's high jump-Nancy Carter which was conceded to Varsity by
(V)-4 feet, 1 In.; Janet Higglnbot-
ham (V), Nina Jackson (V).
Men's broad jump-Bob Osborne
<V)-17 feet, 10 In; Hugh Ormsby
(V), Rolfe- Forsythe (V).
Women's broad jump — Laurel
Rowntree (V), J. Reed (V), N. Jackson (V).
Pole vault—Tie: Gordon Root and
Harry Prevey—9 feet, 7% In.

reason of a back-charge against Todd.
From then on Pt. Grey had a slight
edge until half-time. In the second
half, even play continued to be the
order of the game with both goals
sustaining some very narrow escapes,
until Frattinger was beaten and Pt.
Grey garnered the equalizing marker.
The team: Frattinger, McGill, and
Grant; Costain, Kozoolin, and Mac-
Dougal; Reid, Cooke, Mundle, D.
Todd and L. Todd.
In Island
Senior A basketball team broke
even on the Vancouver Island games
last week-end. The Canadian Champions lost to Nanalmo In a close game
on Friday 16-19, and then beat Al-
berni 39-17 in the other game Saturday.
Pi Campbell, peerless forward,
leading scorer of the V. and D.
league last year, and Bulldog Chapman, stellar defense man, missed the
Nanalmo boat Friday night and did
not play In Nanalmo. They managed
to get over In time to join the squad
on Saturday before they left for Al-
berni. Apparently the team missed
these two men in the Friday night
The first game with Nanalmo was
a thriller. Varsity opened the scoring
and Were leading 6-0 halfway through
the period, but could not hold the
mine boys to this score. The local
lads wiped out this lead and the
score was even at half-time. In the
second half the locals, who were in
better condition than the college
team, ran In enough baskets to hold
off a U. B. C. rally near the end of
the game. The miners used a zone defense system throughout, as opposed
to a man-to-man defense used by the
students. Lome Falconer, hustling
manager of the students, had*.to play
In this game owing to the absence of
Chapman and Campbell. The Island-
ders sent word back to sign him on
the squad. Bob Osborne, lanky
young guard and the most promising
defense man In B. C. topped the Varsity scoring and was'the Individual
star of the game along with Cyclone
Lee and L. Nicholson. Little Bobby
McDonald played a great game for
his Initial senior start. Eddie Armstrong sprained his ankle during the
game. This was a sad blow to the
Varsity hopes, as Eddie Is a star performer, and knows where the basket
it located.
The team for this game was: Osborne (8), Lee (4), Armstrong (2),
Nicholson (2), McDonald and Falconer.
The Champs met Chapman and
Campbell in Nanalmo on Saturday
and proceeded to Alberni where they
were the star attraction at the official opening of the new Alberni Gym.
The game with Alberni was a different story from the Nanalmo battle. The Canadian Champs found
their feet and with the team at full
strength waltzed through the West
Coasters to the tune of 39-17. The
game was too one-sided to be interesting. The whole team shared in
the scoring honours and there was
no one man outstanding. The team
was the same as that for the first
game with the exception of Armstrong and Falconer and the addition
of Chapman and Campbell.
Doc Thorpe accompanied the team
as trainer and Jack Thomson as
Student Council representative. This
is a new procedure with travelling
Varsity teams
The team following this trip will
now get down to serious conditioning
for the league schedule which starts
early In November. Wally Mayers
and Ken McDonald will be out early
next week and with the addition of a
good guard the boys will present a
very formidable line for the opening
of the Melon tossing season.
Junior Soccer
In Losing Tilts
Over Week-end
Varsity Junior Soccer team went
down'to defeat on Saturday at the
hands of Woodland Thistles by a
score of 8-0. The Thistles gave a
clever exhibition of ball control and
fast accurate passing which baffled
a bewildered U, B. C. squad. At half
time the score was 2-0, but after tiie
oranges, Woodland ran wild to score
three goals In rapid succession. Al'
though the Varsity defense tightened
up somewhat, the opposition ran in
three more counters before the final
In- Monday's game, the same squad
lost a close decision at Brlghouse
from the Richmond team. As lndl-
cited by the score, of 3-2, the Farmers were barely value for a win, play
being very close and even, Richmond opened hostilities with a goal
about twenty minutes from the start,
but Atwater equalized soon after
with a hard, low drive which gave
the Richmond net-minder no chance
to save. No further scoring occurred
until after half-time, when the Lulu
Islanders had the best of matters to
the tune of 2 goals to Varsity's one,
and accounted for the final score-
Varsity 2, Richmond 3.

In Miller Cup
Varsity's Miller Cup English rugby
teams broke even Saturday at Brockton Point when U. R. C. scored a de-/
cisive 9-3 win over Ex-Tech and Varsity lost a hard fought game to the
more experienced Ex-King George
outfit by a score of 6-0.
In the game between U. B. C. And
Ex-Tech. U. B. C. proved Itself de|
cledly superior, carrying the fight
to the opposing team for the first
half of the game. Most of the play
during this half was within Ex-
Tech's 25 yard line, and was marked
by considerable penalty kicking.
Twice the blue and gold failed to
score on these kicks but on the third
attempt, Barratt converted. Moyes
was accepting passes very well, giving his team a chance) to break away
from their opponents. Barratt accepted a pass from Moyes and scored
the only touch of the game. In the
second half Ex-Techs made a desperate attempt to even the score but
failed through lack of team work.
They scored their only points on a
penalty kick.
The U. B. C. team was as follows:
Barratt, Moyes, K. Mercer, A. Mercer, Dalton, Ellis, Mason, Mitchell,
Bell-Irving, Hotson, Davidson, Ak-
hurst and Brand.
In the second game, Ex-King
George, an older and more experienced squad, had most of the play,
panning Varsity In its own half of
the field for the greater part of the
first half. Fine tackling by the blue
and gold defense was all that prevented the score from mounting. to
much greater proportions. Niblo
scored on a penalty while Archibald
went over for a try for the Ex-King's
total scoring of the game.
In the second half Varsity woke up
and carried the fight right back to
enemy territory. The Greenshirts
were equal to the occasion, however,
and prevented any scoring, to hold
their 8-0 lead throughout the remainder of the game.
Varsity was represented by: Rob-
bins, Stewart, Stobie, Cleveland,
Pugh, Gaul, Tye, Worthlngton, D.
Brown, Rogers, Senkler, Pearson,
Weld, Hendley and B. Brown.
Both English Rugby squads are in
good shape for to-morrow's games.
The U.B.C. team meets the Ex-Mageu
outfit and are confident that they
can take this battle. However, the
Varsity have a much harder task
ahead of them. They will meet the
fast moving Rowing Club, who, as
of yet have not lost a game and who
lead the league.
The Varsity crew intends to take
the Rowers, and have been training
very hard for the last week with this
in view. They will have the services
of Cleveland at fullback, who has not
been out before thia season, but as
an experienced and capable player
should add considerable strength to
his squad.
Students have an excellent chance
to see both these teams in action.
Both games are to be played at the
oval. U. B. C. will kick off at 1:15
and Varsity will start immediately
after at 3:15.
The teams will be: U. B. C—back-
field, Ramber, Barratt, Owen C. Dalton, A. Mercer, K. Mercer, D. Ellis,
Moyes, Mitchell, Mason, Bell-Irving,
Brand, Nixon, Davidson, Ackhurst.
Varsity—backfield: H. Cleveland,

Vanity's senior gridders will go all
out for victory when they tackle

suffered at the hands of the Royal
City squad when they received a 5-1
setback. The varsity team are confident of a Win after their Inspired
showing against Meralomas.
Tom Brown will be back In tha line
to alternate with Purdue at snap
while Jack Steele, tricky backfield
man, will still be out of tha game
owing to injuries received in the first
lame of the season, Doug. Mclntyre,
who led Varsity to triumph In tho
game against Meralomas will also be
out owing to a bad blow he received
on the ankle. His place on the team
Will be hard to fill.
Ian Morrison will return after an
absence of one tussle to take up his
position at inside while Ernie Peden,
who was elected captain of the team
recently, will play Inside Instead of
middle. The rest of the team will take
their usual places with no startling
change of lineup. According to Johnnie McLean, president of the club,
Varsity should win with ease.
An inspired Varsity grid team came
from behind in the last few minutes
of the game against Meralomas to
snatch victory from defeat and to
down the Clubbers 12-6, Saturday,
afternoon. This comes as sweet revenge for the losses Varsity suffered
last year at the hands of the Kitsll-
anoans when they twice defeated the
Collegtlans in the last few minutes
of the game.
In the first quarter Meralomas
blocked a Varsity kick and rushed
over in time to gain the first score
of the game. The try was improved
and from then on Varsity started to
press and for the most of the game
kept the opposition penned up with
rushes down the field.
Mclntyre Played a brilliant game
In the backfield and assisted greatly
with his twisting runs in gaining a
victory for the blue and gold. Dl-
rom's plunges had the spectators on
their feet as he gained yard after
yard with mighty heaves through the
line. Dick Farrington at end played
the game of his grid career and held
the Meralomas from returning kicks
time and again.
It was in the second half that Varsity started its inspired offensive with
an aerial attack that had the defenders bewildered, Dirom ran 40 yards
to place the ball over the line when
he galloped through a huge hole,
warded off two Meraloma tacklers
and then safely crossed for Varsity's
first touch. The try was not converted. At this time Mclntyre was continually putting the blue and gold
within scoring distance with his
tricky broken-field runs.
Parker of the,Meralomas caught a
Varsity punt behind his own line and
was unable to return when tackled
by two Varsity men and thus the
students gained a safety touch to
make the score 7-6 In their favor.
Varsity fell on the ball when Mer
alomes fumbled near then* own line
and then Dirom carried the ball eight
yards through the line with one of
his mighty plunges. Murdock carried
the ball the remaining yard to make
the tally 12-6 for Varsity. The game
ended almost immediately after this
The entire Varsity team played a
great game In the second half and
vindicated themselves as a threat to
the rest of the teams in the league.
The one fault of the college side was,
that they were unable at times to get
their kicks away clearly, due to the
line not holding.
