"The Venetian school paid most attention to colouring, the Florentines
to draughtsmanship; and tho difference Is due chiefly to the fact that Venice
waa a commercial city, while Florence was the loading Intellectual city In
Italy," aald Mr. Dick at the beginning or his lecture on February ll).

softness and charm of Raphael. The extraordinary daintiness and natural-

ranks very little lower than the grout figures of the Florentine school.
The Venetian architecture and art wus distinctly influenced hy tho
JJy*antine forma, and Its vivid colouring expresses more the splendour of the
olty than a devotional quality. The stiff and formal A neon a style of painting
altarpleces was very popular among the early Venetlun artists. It consisted
of two tiers of figures ln niches, surrounded by an ornate framework.
Iaoopo Bellini was the real founder
of the Venetian school of painting.
Hla own works are rare, but his influence was very great as is shown
by the extensive borrowing of ideas
from a drawing book of his by succeeding artists.
At thla time a mediocre artist but
great teaoher, Squaroione, founded a
school at the neighboring town ot
Padua. Crlvelll was one ot the greatest of these. He was a very clever
draughtsman, but in spite of thia and
the beauty of his colouring, there Is
a ourous ooldness about bla palnttnga
that does not make them attractive.
Andrea Mantegna was the most famous of the Paduan school, which had
for Its trademark festoons of fruit
Hanging In the background of the
pictures. In the "Madonna of Victory"
Mantegna combines rich and decorative composition with delicate yet
strong handling, and followed the
tbe Florentines more ln trying to give
clear and true studies of form, not
merely beauty of colouring or sen-
suouaness. In his "Dance of the
Muses" the classical spirt is more
nearly attained than In any other
ot the period.
Gentile Bellini, the eldest son of
Iacopo Bellini, was a typical artist of
the Venetian school, ln getting effects
by the use of rich and massed colouring not draughtsmanship, and ln
painting scones of his native city or
its neighborhood. He was also one
of the first to take up character painting. He became state painter, later
sharing this privilege with his brother,
Giovanni Bellini was the real head
of the Venetian artists. He is notable
for his ability to always keep fresh

old man, as is shown hy his adopting

A meeting of the combined Senior

formal Ancona Painting by no longer
separating the figures ln niches, but
putting them all In the same picture.
He was noted for being a man of very
line character.
"Glorgtone aud Titian were the cul-
minuting figures of tho Venetian
school und were discussed by Mr.
Dick In his last lecture on February
11. Both men wore pupils of Giovanni
Bellini, and formed a close association together, of which Gorglone was
tho dominating spirit until his death
at the age of 33. Glorgione Introduced
a new quality ot romance into tho
Venetian painting, though his work had
little of tho characteristic landscapes
and vivid colouring. There aro only
twelve authentic pictures of his in
existence, and of their distinctive features Is the unusually beautiful faces
of the madonnas and also of his
"Venus." In his religious paintings
''e used an open landscape as a background Instead of the conventional
architecture developed from the An
conn paintings. Many of the pictures
formerly attributed to him were the
work of other artists.
Until (liorglone's dsath in 1510 it Is
hard to tell In tho paintings that come
from the studio what work on them
was done by Glorgione antl what by
Titian. Hy 1514, however, Tillan's individuality Is fully developed as Is
shown hy his picture of Christ meeting Mary Magdalene In the garden of
(liihseiiiaiuj. This palming is linpor
tain, as for the tlrst time the hind-
scape Is properly woven Into the
picture, and is almost as important
as the figures, Instead of being partitioned off Into the background. Thus
the third dimension of depth Is moro
evident. Also in painting the draperies
Titian used thickened oil paints, and
so wns the first user of the medium
used by all modern painters. For a
time from 151(1 on Titian used pagan
subjects, and to this period belongs
"Bacchus nnd Arlndne." This is the
most perfect of all Tltlun's paintings
and Is one of the supreme examples
of Venetian nrt. In It tho artist has
used not one but every device known
to a painter, such ns the contrast of
light, and shade, colouring, henutful
lines, nnd mnssed figures. Till M.>e end
of his life he varied between mythological and mnterlnltatic subjects, nnd
religious oneH. Townrtls the end of

Students' Court
is Made Into
a Definite Body
Concerning the Student's Court, a
matter much in the limelight at present, definite Information has been
put ln the hands of the Publications
Board. The effect of the new amend-
mints to 'he University Act, which
have passed thtlr second reading ln
Ihe House at Victoria Is to put the
Student's Court on a definite legal
basis. Hitherto the power of the
students to legislate on matters of
student discipline has been strictly
To quote from tho new bill now
under consideration by the legislature, the Faculty Council has the
"(f) Subject to the approval of
the Senate to permit the organization
of a Student's Court, nnd to delegate
to such court such part of their disciplinary powers as may from time
to time be deemed advisable, but such
disciplinary powers may bo Increased,
decreased or taken entirely away
from such Student's Court at any
time the Faculty Council may deem
lt advisable."
President Kllnck In a statement to
a Ubyssey reporter expressed himself
ns of the opinion that the new system Is an Immense Improvement on
the old. It makes the Student's Court
a definite, recognized body with certain specified powers to regulate
student discipline. This concession
on the part of the Government. Is n
gnat step towr-'s student self-
government. It fa understood, of
course, that any decision of the Stud
ent Court may be appealed to the
University authorities.
The Daily Province Bpeaks editorially on the new legislation somewhat
ns  follows:
". . . . The students at Point Grey
are to be given a new legal status as
men and women and are to bo accorded not only the privilege but the
responsibility    ol    g« Ing    them
selves. Students nre very often
Irresponsible nnd, In careless and
can tree manner, do things which In
their riper years Ihey look back upon
with amazement. At the same time

which can, on occasion, bring about
virtual ostroclsin. ll has been found,
in other universities, that students
who would defy faculty or senate.
, . . . would hesitate long before lacing what ihey knew would be adverse

If the courts succeed, as lt Is

Varaity Drops Two Gamut Out of Three In Week-end Tilts
Varsity rugby players concluded the regular city league schedule Saturday
afternoon. Tho seniors waltzed through King Edward Old Boys for a 80—IS
victory und the Mernlamns squeezed ottt the Intermediates 3—0, while the
Frosh, apparently satisfied with the 14—0 walloping they handed the Art's
seniors earlier lu the week, fell bofore Setiforths 10—3. Only the McKechnie
Cup gume with Vancouver and two Interclass games remain on the 1936—97
schedule after which the pigskin chasers will bury the old strip ln moth bail*
for the summer. <
Varsity seniors took the Held with only fourteen men, but King Edward
had just twelve on the roll. To even up the game Varsity gave King Edward
Morris, who promptly earned his keep by giving the stlffest tackling exhibitions of the day. The thirteen man game was fust and furious, but Varsity
was a little faster and more furious than King Edward as half time blew.
Changing over with out a rest the Varsity score Increased with a leap aa
superior conditions told. Morris was going strong for King Edward, almost
disabling Burratt with a powerful straight-arm. A minute later he effectively
crocked Sinclair with a corkscrew tackle, the latter leaving the field with a
twisted knee. Fired by this reversal in tho real story-book manner, Varsity
added two more tries before the whistle blew, it would be unjust to pick out,
the stars of the afternoons, but some were conspicuous. Tupper and Qustafson gave a stellar display of backtackllng to each other, barely surpassing the
Mahon-Noble combination. Coach Tyrrwhtt afterwards made these displays
seem childish and amateurish. A marked improvement in the style of; play
was noted after Sinclair went off. Billy Locke wrecked a perfectly good
Varsity tradition by kicking three converts. The rest Of the boys gave their,
usual fine exhibition.
With practically a scrub team the
Freshmen went down to defeat
against the Seaforths on tho small
end of a 19-3 score, Owing to lack of
proper organization during the past
two months a more or less haywire
outfit took the field against one of
the best teams ln the league. Jack
Richardson's successful plldtage resulted In a much better showing than
was to be expected, Successful
tackling aud spoiling play, held,this
gatVio scoreless for a large part Of
the first half.
A penalty goal closely followed by
a converted try began the large tally
against the Frosh. The scrum worked hard and heeled the ball out often,
but good work by the opposing back*
prevented it from over getting out
to the wing. A very slippery field
hindered any successful play by the
buck and lack of weight was a serious
disadvantage ln the Varsity backfleld.
Rosseau uncorked a nice play when
he intercepted a cross-kick and ran
thirty yards with the ball for a try.
Grauer proved himself a tower of
strength In the scrum and led the
boys in some very fine offensive play.

Kditor- Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:—■
The Literary and Scientific Department wishes to thank the Gditor-ln-
chlef of the Ubyssey for his constructive criticism antl helpful suggestions
contained In the editorial columns of
the last Issue. No doubt lt will now
be much easier than It has heen In the
past to obtain noon hour speakers to
address the student body.
The department, acknowledges that
there Is justification for the position
taken liy this paper, nnd the committee In charge of this particular branch
announces that a change ln policy, to
go Into effect Immediately, was made
at the last meeting. Whereas, up to
the present tt has endeavored to
secure speakers of international reputation, lt will now try and Induce
local speakers of note to address noon
hour meetings. In pursuance of this
plan, Mr. Percy (lomery, president of
the Canadian Authors' Association,
was secured some time ago to address
a general meeting In the auditorium
at noon on Wednesday next. His subject will he "Canadian Authors and
Canadians." Following this, later In
the term, there will be an address by
Mayor Taylor on u topic of genernl
Meanwhile,    ahould    a   noteworthy
visitor  to  this  city  find  himself with
an    unappropriated    noon    hour,    the
ancient snares and wiles of the com
mltlee will  be applied  In the customary nitmner.
Yours sincerely,
Max  11. Clarke Wright.
Editors Note It is encouraging to re-
i cive such prompt response from the
I..S.D. to th" suggestion contained In
tin- editorial in question. Wo request
students to assist tho work of tho

With the approach of student fleet ions will probably come the
question of raising the Alma Mater fee. Much has been said concerning the inability of Council to function satisfactorily on the ton
thousand dollars collected n» fees each year. This spring student
finances have reached a low obb and as a result it is stated that next
fall the Council will not have sufficient money with which to start the
seasons activities. The student body is assured that the only way
to guard against a repetition of this state of affairs in future years
is to raise the Alma Mater fee. Careful consideration and n good
airing should be given to all aspects of our financial situation before
any vote is taken.
The first question which arises is where do tho present funds go?
Each month the treasurer posts a financial report on the notieeboard.
This report is merely a general statement of income nnd expenditure,
detailed information as to where or how the money was received or
Spent being usually lacking. Such a balance sheet, however necessary
and satisfactory from an auditor's standpoint, gives the students
little information as to how the Alma Mater funds are expended—
how much each of the various student activities receives throughout
tha season, how they spend the money received and how much they
turn back as profit. If a complete series of concise financial statements from each affiliated club receiving support from the Almn
Mater Society were published each spring it would give tho whole
Student body a working knowledge of college finances, knowledge
sadly lacking at present.
Is the money wisely expended, distributed in the proper proportions, spent so as to bring the maximum benefit to the University both
now and in the years to come? Three hundred dollars of this year's
funds spent on tennis courts when a dressing room of any sort at the
athletic field is so sorely needed makes one ponder over the word
"wisely." Tennis is a small sport in the University, decidedly out of
season for the greater part of the term, while a dressing room is
needed by the majority of our athletes throughout the session. There
are twelve teams which desire to practice on a playing field on Wednesday afternoons. In the face of these examples of administration
of student funds, we suggest that, if the Council recommends tbe raising of the Alma Mater fee, the student body should demand a full
analytical statement of the financial condition of the Alma Mater
It must be acknowledged that the standard of debating has, in
this college, drooped until it is now hanging at considerably less than
half-mast. In spite of tbe fact that less talent is, your by year, revealed as material for a program of intei'-colleginte debates, no offer
has been made by the executive involved to cut its coat according to
its cloth, and lake active steps to curtail a somewhat extensive international and collegiate schedule. We believe that if debates involving contact with sister universities were limited in number to one
contest each term that speaking talent could be adequately developed
in local meetings. Talent so developed would then be in much better
shape to enter a major contest than the hurriedly chosen and coached
speakers with which we have tried to maintain our place in forensic
A rumour is abroad; a favourable rumour which we hope will
soon be confirmed as a certainty. It is that a special committee of
girls, freshettes or sophomores by preference, is to be appointed to
take sole charge of the distribution of tickets for the various rugby
games. This will enable the students to help with the work of the
committee, as well as allow the girls to perfect the difficult art of rousing some of our less enthusiastic supporters of college activities. The
necessity for this action was illustrated during a past Benefit Match,
for which many students, anxious to procure tickets, wore totally unaware that they were for sale on the campus. The reason for this
was that the ticket-sellers of the past have been volunteers, composed
of either already overworked individuals, or of a few persons who
joined for the publicity, or because some one else did, and then were
unwilling to put into it the necessary work accompanying the position. The new idea is a good one, and it is boned that it will speedily
be carried into execution.

Editor of the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir;
I should like to draw your attention to tho fact that a certain club
receives too much attention ln your
paper. 1 refer to the Thoth Club,
Why Is this specific club entitled to
■io much front page space? Last term
It was given moro publicity through
the paper than nil other societies nnd
clubs put together, I am sure that
many studentH have felt that, notwithstanding the very Interesting (?)
mil ure of this estimable organisation, It nevertheless was not representative enough to warrant the giving of such a large spuce on your
front-page to Its notices, etc.
Yours truly,
Ktl. Note,- In view of the unpopularity antl ambiguity of some of our
recent comments on correspondents,
the founder of Thoth has stepped forth und stopped with his hand
tho hole in the dike, if hole there
be. He shows the above correspondent how dangerous a thing is Inadequate knowledge.
Editor of the "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir;
In reply to a certain gentleman who
seems to be Interested in the Thoth
Society, I would like to remark that
he may be guilty of a little exaggeration. He states that last term the
Society was given more publicity than
all the other Societies and Clubs put
together. I infer that he means by
this that the Society has obtained
more publicity than the Rugby Club,
the Canadian Rugby Club, the Player's Club, the Men's and Women's
Literary Societies, und all other organisations combined! This probably
Is a slight over-statement.
The Thoth Club has never received
much front page space, In spite of
Mr. Tolmle's dramatic assertion. This
term (1927) the Thoth Club has actu-
ally received one 200 word write-up
on the front page, when lt reported
nu Interesting news Item. The only
other mention of the Club whatsoever waa a two-line announcement ln
an obscure corner of the back page.
If Mr. Tolmie will look at the flies
of the "Ubyssey," he will find that
reports on Thoth activities consisted
of: No. 6, p. 2; 2 Inches; No. 8, Page
1—mention of the Thoth Club In a
L. S. I), write-up; No. 9, Page 4, 2
Inches; No. lt, Page 2, 4 Inches; No.
13, Page 1; Thoth Club mentioned In
Home-coming write-up; No. 13, Page
2, editorial; No. 14, Page 1, a notice.
This disproves Mr. Tolmle's claim
of the Thoth Club being "entitled to
so much front page space!"
This leads one to suppose that Mr.
Tolmie Is upset over the publication
of "Thoth Themes" on the Feature
Page ( wish to remind him that
Ihey were put in as "Muck-a-Muck"
and wen- discussions of Maggie Jiggs,
Harry Langdon and other well known
characters, rather than of the Society of Thoth. If the Letter's Club,
the Livestock Club, the Fundamentalist Society, etc., would send "Muck-
a-Muck to this paper, they would receive equal, If not more, consideration. (I might ln passing refer Mr.
Tolmie to the "Muckatorlal" of
November 11, 1926). It seems rather
late for Mr. Tolmie to try to raise
a dead issue. Other Clubs and Societies have always had equal opportunity with Thoth 'o submit acceptable reports of their activities. If,
however, certain clubs submit very
brief and uninteresting reports, they
stand little chance of receiving front
page space.
I would suggest that before Mr,
Tolmie waxes "sarcastic" he should
base his Judgment of the extent to
which Thoth Is "representative," and
"Interesting" on the Constitution that
Is deposited In the L. S. 1). files.
Thanking Mr. Tolmie for the "attention" he has drawn to the Club
by his letter, nnd to the additional
space he has given it ln the correspondence column,
I remain,
Vours Thothfully.

The first thing that caught my attention on boarding North Vancouver
Ferry, No. 3, was a large placard,
bearing the words, "To obtain 75 life-
preservers, pull this cord," I looked
at tho sign two or three times, furtively, lest the mate should notice that
I was paying undue attention to lt,
and walked over to the rope. In vain
did I endeavour to look at the sky,
Ihe mountains, water, anything but
that infernal rope, but no, the subconscious urge was too strong, and,
less to satisfy the instinct of curiosity than to prevent the formation of
an Inhibition complex, I seized the
cord and pulled lt. Round about me
the queerest occurrences began to
Oh dear! I had no Idea that seventy-five ordinary life preservers
were bo many; they bounced over
each other and almost Inundated the
deck. I surveyed the wreckage, and
picked up one of the cork affairs and
began examining it with as nonchalant an air as possible, just as the big
Scotch mate came running up. He
looked as If he were about to take
an epileptic fit, and for his own good
I decided to prustall him. "Now, my
dear sir," I said reassuringly, "Do
keep calm. You have no Idea of the
strain you may be subjecting yourself to if you do not remain cool."
My words had an Immediate quieting
effect. "What In H—■- did you do
that for?" he demanded. "Well," I
replied, there were two main reasons,
(a) I wanted to. (b) I wanted them."
Willi my great intentlve ability, I
could see immediately that he was
beginning to entertain doubts as to
icy sauii.v. "Or," 1 continued, "If those
reasons do not seem adequate. I must
tell you that I have a mania for pulling cords. Once in a street car I
mistook the safety, or emergency
cord, for the bell, nnd pulled It, with
the most amusing result, because the
car was full of people." Now, I am
sure that Scotchmen have no sense
of humor. That mate did not even
smile, he did not even relax his facial
muscles. "Now my clear sir," I continued, "do be reasonable. That sign
distinctly says that If I or anyone for
that matter, wish to obtain seventy-
five preservers, It is only necessary
to pull the cord. I wished to obtain
the preservers. I pulled the cord.
What could be more simple or natural?" 1 could see that my reasoning
was having an effect. During our
discussion, two deckhands had started to clear up the debris.
A week later I noticed that the
original sign was supplemented with
another one, placed underneath, which
rend, "This cord Is Is not to be pulled
unless the ship Is sinking."

Wild Profs. I Have
In one room In the building part
or a class has *.n,ssembled for an
hour's entertainment. Some students
are gathered about the door discussing malters of current Interest. Hud-
ilelily one little fellow pipes up,
"Here ho conies." TIihbo words produce an electric effect. The door Is
cleared as If by magic and each student In now bUBlly opening his books
that he might resume the process of
note gathering.
Through the door Htrldes a man--
he Is a professor, but one would
never know It to look at him. His
BUlt Is a modest blue, his tie is a
little too striking for a member of the
professorial ranks.
Closing the door ho turns to the
class and smiles a cherry "Good
Morning." He mounts the platform
and, shuffling his feet from Bide to
Htdo, or balancing himself upon his
toes, resumes his lecture where he
left off last day.
A most remarkable thing about this
man Is that he has no notes to lecture from, nor has he even reference
books. All his knowledge is carried
within his head—Just where It should
be. On this alone he draws for fifty
minutes—Illustrating and Illuminating his lecture by an ancedote here
and a flourish there. Never once does
he pick up a piece of chalk unless
to play with, for he never likes to
mar the beauty of the wall by disfiguring lt with white lines.
Suddenly he pauses, looks around,
and says, "It Is rather stuffy here."
Up go two or three windows accompanied in the never falling enquiry
addressed to the student sitting near
the aperture, "You don't mind having thla open, do you? If lt is too
cold Just say so." And comes back
the never falling reply, "Not in the
least," and so the poor students
shiver for the rest of the hour simply
because one of their number had not
the nerve to deny that he was "a
fresh-air fiend."
Fifteen minutes have flown but they
have not gone uninterruptedly. Every
minute or two there has come a
knock at the door and the young professor had boomed out In hla strong
masculine voice, "Come in."
In they come. First a co-ed who
glides coyly to her seat. Then some
member of the sterner sex who
stamps his way to his altoted place.
By now almost everyone has arrived
and the young professor, who savours
strongly of England and the English
says, "Well!-- We are all here now,
I suppose I had better take a hasty
review of what I have Haiti. So many
were not here when I started."
Then follows the resume. During
Its process one or two heads begin to
nod ever so slightly. A gust of wind
conies sweeping by outside and the
girls tug at their fur collars and almost choke themselves to death.
Eventually  windows are lowered.
At last the bell rings. Many heads
which had been dropping now are
held high. Hooks are grasped tightly
and pens put away. But still the man
keeps on while gliding gently toward
the door. At last his outstretched
hard grasps the knob and pausing
there for a moment he finally ends,
"Well! That will be all for this
morning." Out he strides and out the
students  rush.
The coed says of this man to her
chum as they flutter down the hall.
"Isn't he good looking. And such an
interesting talker too." At the same
tf-ne a young man ln the common
utters   the   profound   words,   "He   is
darned clever but ."

Ous Hardy, rugby star, Incurs the
hatred of Jasper I'rout. This hatred Is
Increased when Hardy throws Prout
out of High Jinks, and wIub the admiration or Jane Stone, daughter of a
prominent tl.ll.C. professor. Prout has
lost heavily In gambling and plans to
plunder Ihe nest of Hon No. 6.
Chapter III
Clouds of thick- pungent smoke enveloped tht* dingy chamber, as the
gamblers crowded around the stooping figures. Wild-eyed men murmured rough ejaculations compared notes,
and craned their necks forward in
scarcely concealed eagerness to behold the game that had become their
life, their hope and the sole reason
of their existence.
The room was Indescribably dirty
and foul. Only the plainest furniture
was there: cheap, bare tables and
chairs. The floor was littered Inches
deep with papers, broken boxes, half
consumed food and yellow cigarette
butts. One wall was plastered with
nondescript pieces of paper, mostly
concerned with sport, and occasionally a picture of some athlete of note.
Many of these papers were covered
with the ribald inscriptions of the alleged humorists of the place. It was
the worst haunt ln the whole of the
Underworld of the University of British Columbia.
It was the Men's Common Room!
Jasper Prout put his hands ln his
pockets for the thirtieth time. "Bet
you five cents," he snapped desperately. "I'll cover your bet," replied
Jimmy O'Hlggln, arch-gambler supreme, In his calm level voice.
Click! O' Hlggin's coin slid
across the floor and stopped a fraction of an Inch from the wall. He
rose and looked round triumphantly.
Beads ot perspiration appeared on
Prout's brow, with anxious eye he
measured and re-measured the distance to the wall. At last he crouched
forward and sped his coin on its way.
Click! The coin hit the wall and
bounced two inches clear of the wall.
He had lost.
Ruined! Prout Hung Ihe wager on
the floor and grabbed his crumpled
hat and coat from a chair, that served
as a locker. With a villainous scowl
he fled from the den.
• •   e
Jasper Prout was now desperate.
He was ruined! Desperate thoughts
flashed through his brain, and for a
minute he actually considered Joining Science '30. The madness passed and he began considering suicide.
"Money!" he groaned, "Money! I
have lost my caution money, my class
lees, and the ticket I'or the Musical
Society's performance! Curses! I
haven't anything to bet on the Arts
'l!ii   Relay."
Suddenly he smiled with satisfaction, like a librarian receiving a valentine. "Hen No. li ot course!" he exclaimed, "I will steal those eggs and
blame It on Gus Hardy!"
He made his way to Alma Road
stopped at a cheap boarding house
and was shown Into a small sitting
A round fat man with a pair of
huge horn rimmed glasses rose to
meet him. "Professor Buckwheat, of
Plymouth Agricultural College, I believe," said Prout, putting on hla
most Ingratiating smile, like a student coming in late for English 13.
"Sure," answered the man, "That's
me.—Plymouth  Rock,  U. 3. A."
"I've a proposition to make to you,"
whispered Prout, "Do you know Hen
No.   fi?"
"Sure," drawled the Professor, "I
know her as well as Pinky Stewart
knows hla onions,"
"Well," hissed Jasper Prout, "I'll
got you her eggs for $10 each, no
questions  asked."
"I hope Its not a rase of fowl play,"
murmured the Professor. "Anyway
I'll  accept  your offer."
Ten   minutes   later,   Jasper   Prout
was buck lo the Men's Common Room
with five dollars In his pocket.

"We will have to rehearse thla," said
the driver as the coffin fell out.
Judging by all Indications, one of
the most vigorous forms of mental
athletics Is taking these sedate halls
by storm. Grave students, most of
them with a brain expansion of over
lt Inches spend their time setting
crouched over a checkered board, arrayed with cute little figures of horses,
etc., and Indulge In cerebral calisthenics by Ihe hour.   Chess Indeed!
Last year, a furore was created In
athletic circles by thu appearance of
the Varsity flrst-llne Chess team prior
to their much heralded departure to
Kamchatka. The three upper years
can remember when these mental
giants were presented with their Big
Block letters on the Auditorium
Most of us can remember reading
with elation, the report reprinted ln
the "Ubyssey" of the terrific battle
that our Intellectual gladiators waged
against the champions of Beans Col-
llch at Kingston, Ontario. Although
on that occasion wo were defeated by
the score of 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 to 0,
the fighting spirit of the wearers of
the Blue and Gold was not quenched,
and the athletes are longing for the
return match.
Who said that the University Chess
Club has no tradition!
Now the Chess Club Is completely
organized. Budding Capablancas at
this very moment, are matching their
wits lu ponderous conflict ln the Cafeteria. Trays full of food are piled
beside them, but they heed them not.
Now aud then, lt la true, an occasional
player takes a bite out of the King
by mistake, or accldently stirs his
coffee with a bishop, but this is part
of the fortunes of war. The game's
the thing.
Crowds of spectators throng the
scene of the contests, hurling challenges and offering criticism without
being asked. Freshmen, in particular, are attracted by the appearance
of the pieces, and interrupt important check-mates by naively asking
"what is the little horses head." if
the Chess struggle continues there
will be more casualties than ln
rugby—emong the spectators.
If student apathy exists ln this
University, the Chess Club has not
been Infected with the dread disease.
The lusty infant Is growing rapidly,
and is looking forward to a time when
lt can claim an 800 word write-up composed by no less a person than Vem-
ard (Himself) Stewart.

Varsity Senior 'A'
Plays Into Overtime
Against K.E.O.B.
Varsity lost to King-Edward Old
Roys Saturday night, but it was the
greatest game that they have played
this year. The final score stood 2.1—
22, after 5 minutes overtime. When
Captain Tanny Butler left the court
five minutes from time tbe score
20—19 In favor of Varsity or K.K.O.B.
would mount the ladder for the right
to meet Westminster Y and tho
posshllity of a Provincial Championship. It mny bo snld of the Old Boys
thnt they plnyed clennly and great
credit la due Leadley McMaster for
the way he led his team. He is a fine
player and a good sport.
Butler opened up the score on a
free shoot, and Uuss Robinson scored
from the foul area lo make the score
.'! ii for Varsity, Shortly afterwards
the Did Hoys repealed the name pro
(ess and  the score stood  '.I- ■-'.'•.
Varsity was handling nervously and
their shooting was far from good.
The floor piny up to this point was
controlled by the Old Boys and they
were shooting often but missing the
majority of importunities. Toward
the end of the half Varsity started to
control the play but could not locate
the basket, The half time score
stood at K- ll for the Old Boys. At
the opening of tlie second half the
Old Boys ran in another field basket
and the score stootl 10—6 Varsity
carne up even by the shooting of
Mayers and near tho end the score
stood 10 -li). A free throw by Butler
and Varsity was ahead 20-1!). Just
before time Old Boys made It 20—20
by a free throw by (Irnnt after Colnian
Hall had taken tho air for four personals. At that point Butler went off on
the same count, and the final whistle
found the score 20—20.
The live minutes overtime was the
the undoing of the Varsity team despite the two points of Mayers that
pill Varsity up to 1!2, it free throw by
Grant of the Old Boys and a Held
basket  gave  Ihe  Old   Boys  the  game.
The crowd went wild with excite
iiient as It was anybody's game until
the last, Mayers snared s points for
Viirsltv and had lie gone In Instead
of shooting from a distance he might
have made more . (Irani played a very
steady game and got N points Duller
however was I lie big lower oil the defense and oileiiee and although he
mil) not I points he made the openings

minutes from the final whistle At the
end of twenty minutes overtime the
scon* was again lied .1 3, and It wus
decided to piny yet another twenty
minute period. From now on the
Cricketers dm) tho iidvnntiige over the
tired Varsity men, and scored once
again. Varsity made a Until desperate
effort to even up, but Just before the
whistle the Cricketers scored tholr
fliuil tally, bringing the gume to n 3—5
score. The piny wus fast throughout

Both teams wero checked to a

Canadian Rugby
In the first game of the intermediate Canadian Rugby League, Saturday, Varsity trounced the Meralomas
11-0. Although twelve of the sixteen
men have never played a gamo before, the month of dally morning practices had Its effect und held an experienced team scoreless. The Mer-
uloinus came upon the field confident
of a victory, but he strong Bluu und
Cold squad scored two touchdowns
In Hie first hull', and ton verted one

The first touchdown was a gill,
Teddy Bains recovering a Meralonui

Varsity's weak points Is lis Inability
lo lake advantage of the opponent's
mistakes, However, Coach Burke Is
emphasizing (his point lu practice,
anil the team should be more polished in this department by the second
The game brought several new men
Into the limelight. The Varsity back-
field, Pajrkcr, Straight, Fraser and
Durham did some fine work. All
these men are developing line-bucking technique, and their tackling is
surer every day. Straight scored the
first touchdown of his young life when
he broke through on a center back
und ran forty yards for a tally. Durham also got away on a couple of
nice runs, Fraser excelled in line
bucks, while Parker played a fine
game nt safety, and seems to have
the stuff of which open-field runners
are mntle on.
Cece Helmer, captain, ran the team
from the quarterback position. He
hus a beautiful punt, averaging over
forty yards, and he kicked the only
drop-kick of the game when he converted the first, touchdown. Cece Is
in on every play, and is always thoro
nt the critical moment.
One of the most outstanding players of the day wus Stan Miller, the
Varsity snap-back. Stan played opposite Rich, an experienced center,
but he wus able to break through on
nearly every play, often smearing
Meralomu end runs from behind.
Urilllths la developing into a good
nian at end, as are also Dawson and
Robson. flnins und Comnzzl played
very well nt the middle-wing position,
Comnzzl being new to the gume.
Smith, Hall and Mitchell played guard
nnd deserve great credit for opening the holes for Varsity's ground-
gaining bucks.
Altogether a great game, though
Varsity's play is still pretty ragged
in spots. The end-run must be perfected if Varsity success Is to continued. However, such a decisive victory against the Meialomus, the best
of the city teams, certainly gives
some ground for optimism.
