Treasurer Submits
Article Explaining
Last Year's Surplus
In answer to the criticism rampant about the showing of
a $3,900 surplus by the Alma Mater Society this year, Mark
Collins, Treasurer, submits in explanation the following article.
"A fundamental principle in the administration of the funds
of any Society is that each fiscal year should be self-supporting,
i.e., in any one year the expenditures should be such that they
may be met by the receipts of that year. Thus a surplus realized in the operations of one year should not be budgeted as a
receipt in the operations of the following year.
"In budgeting the year's disbursements, it is necessary to
set add* a certain aunt as aa "operating surplus,"-* sum for which no
disbursement ia budgeted — In order
that say disbursements which may bt
rtquirtd during the year but which
were not apparent when tht budgets
wart brought down in tht fall may
bt madt In this way, tt tht beginning of any year thtrt la always t
possible surplus, but In practict thia
dots not generally survive the year's
"In the formation of a surplus In
tht operations of tht Alma Mater Society thtrt art six possible sources of
unbudgeted Income, or income in excess of that budgeted.  These are:
1. The operating surplus of tht
previous year, a portion of which ia
required to conduct operations over
tht summer.
2. Expenses which are budgeted
and later found unnecessary.
3. Disbureementa for purchases
which are below the amount budgeted.
4. Discounts, rebates, etc., now
available owing to more efficient
management under the Accountant
5. Receipts from Leagues, the Musical Society, the Players' Club (always nknown quantities) which are
in excess of the budgeted amount.
6. Receipts in the form of donations,
etc., existence of which is unknown
until received.
"In the 13,900 excess of revenue
over expenditure in the Session 1931-
32, practically all of these facU*-a
were active, the formation of the sur^
plus for tht past year being as follows:
Budgeted Operating Surplus, $564.05;
Difference between Budgeted Expenditures, $13,355.95, and Actual Expenditures, S11,839.27-S1,516,.68.
Profit on Sales of General
Merchandise, $71.19; Sum received
from the Stadium Fund hi repayment of advances made and
charged off in Session 1931-32, $1,057.-
52; Caution Money (page 54 Calendar
1931-32), $464.85; Gymnasium Income,
Net, $59.91; Homecoming, $40.39; Interest and Discount, $48.93-31,742.79.
Income from M. U. S. and subsidiaries, $108.55; Excess of Revenue
over Expenditure for nine months
ending June 30, 1932, $3,932.07.
"This amount (3,932.07) was constituted as follows:
Cash on hand and in bank, $3,103.22.
Add: Excess of Accounts Receivable,
$1,032.70, over Accounts Payable,
$226.72—$805.98;   Value   of   General
Ifrptngt for 1932-33, $435.44-tl,2S1.4l
Deduct: Amount owing to Women's
Union Building fund, tU7J0; Excess
of Adjusted Surplus UH over Equipment im, $385.37-140137—$3,912.07.
Tht cash on hand and in tht bank
($3,103J2) has been expended to data
In tht following manntr:
Donations to Stadium, $632.60; Donation to Norman Cox, Swimming
Coach, to aid in expenses to Olympic
Games 1932, $20.00; 1931-32 Income and
Expense, $795.71; Contingent Liabilities. Stadium Groundsman, 175.00;
Stadium Hardware, $25.13-$100.12-
$1,548.43. Balance on hand, 81,554.79-
This balance on hand has been
used from June SO, 1132, to tht present date to meet tht operating expenses of the Alma Mater Society
until such time as wt receive a sufficient advance on this year's fees
from tht University Authorities.
'It was the advice of our auditors
to transfer this balance either to a
Sinking Fund Account for the erection of a Permanent Stadium or to
tht present Stadium Fund Account
for current Improvements. It is the
policy of the Students' Council to
erect temporary structures on the
Stadium in order that some income
may be derived from the money expended to date; hence it is in this
second account that this money will
be placed. If there is a sufficient
additional balance at the end of this
year, from these funds the erection
of a grandstand will be effected next
"The intention of the Students'
Council this year is to reduce the
operating surplus to tht lowest possible minimum and to expend all
available funds at present apparent,
exclusive of last year's balance, hi
the operation of the Alma Mater Society and its subsidiary organizations.
There will be no attempt to increase
the Stadium Trust Fund by excessive savings from this year's budgets,
but there is always the possibility,
owing to the six causes ennumerated
above, of additional income being received and this, in its turn, will be
added to the Stadium Trust Fund.
"It is our sincere hope that this
statement will clear up any existing
misunderstanding on tiie campus of
the financial policy of the Treasurer
and of the Students' Council that
may have arisen as a result of the
publication of the bald statement that
$3,000 had been saved in last year's
Merchandise  on  hand  and  Prepaid operations."

Van. Institute
Hears Soward
On 'Hiderism'
"We are living in one of the most
exciting if not exhilarating periods
in the world's history. Tht World
War dropped a curtain between ourselves and tht past that cannot be
drawn apart Thott who hoped for
anomoly in 1920 were as vain in then*
hopes aa Mttttmtch and his colleagues
of 1815. Back wt cannot go, forward
wt must Yet today wt look out upon a stricken world Ilka a hay sty
still untouched by tht rosy fingers
of the dawn of recovery," stated Professor Soward in opening an address
btfort an audience of six hundred, at
tht second meeting of tht Vancouver
Institute, Saturday last, in tht Auditorium. Bis subject was "Hititrlsm
and tht German Republic."
Dealing with tht east of modern
Germany, htr present unrest and dissatisfaction, tht speaker first gave a
comprehensive vitw of htr polities
from tht start of tht Great War. It
reviewed the Parliament of 1914, dominated by tht Kaiser; tht effects of.
the World War upon the government,
which quickly became a military dictatorship and then tht reaction following defeat that brought about the
Afer reviewing the various adventures in democracy that followed the
revolution, the speaker drew attention to tht erratic growth of a party
whose ideals were miliary and egocentric, the Nazi Party under the
Austrian paper-hanger, Adolf Hitler,
aspirer to the dictatorship of Germany. The phenominal growth of the
Hitlerites during the last four years
from a representation of 12 to 230
in the Reichstag waa due, the speaker
explained, ln a large measure to the
despair of attaining any political'stability, a despair agravated by the drastic condition of the country's financial and social structure* Prof. Soward
backed this up by citing figures showing the increasing suicide rate, the
recent wages cut and industry decline
of one-third.
The speaker was of the opinion that
the peak of the Nazi movement had
been reached, telling of the definite
rebut given the overtures of the Nazis
recently by the party in power.
W.U.S. Ruling
Bans Parade
Of Mannikins
The Fashion Show which has been
the glory of the Women's Undergra
duate Society for tht past two years
will not take place this session. No
more will co-eds parade tht length of
the'Georgian Room of the Hudson's
Bay Company attired in raiment rich
and various in tht cause of the
Women's Union Building.
Two functions art scheduled to take
the place of tht show. A tea dance
is to be held at the Peter Pan Ballroom on tht Saturday of Homecoming week-end. Mary Thompson
an Olive Norgrove are in charge of
arrangements for this affair, which
will conclude two days of festivities,
coming after tht first gamt on tht
new Varsity oval (humorously called
by some tht Stadium), In which Occasionals and Varsity will meet.
Tickets for tht tta-danet may ht
obtained from any member of tht
txtcttvt for tht sum of fifty cents,
proceeds to go as previously noted
to tht Women's Union Building
Tht second event is a bridge, to be
held at tht Commodore on Saturday,
November 12. Plans for this have
not as ytt been completed, but Helen
Lowt, who is directing it, expects to
have them finished at an early date.
The attention of members of W.U.S.
is called to the fact that there is a
meeting to discuss these matters In
Arts 100 tomorrow noon. A second
out-of-town tea is to bt held in the
lower common room tomorrow afternoon, for which Invitations are being
issued via the Arts Letter Rack.
The draw for the Senior class party
takes place today. Only Seniors who
have placed their names in the box hi
the Auditorium foyer will escape the
terrible fate of having a partner picked for them, fees or no fees. Much
mirth is expected from the results.
Names will be drawn by Dr. Carrothers and Bernle Jackson.
More seniors will probably attend
this year than formerly. Reduced fees
are an added attraction, tempting more
members of Arts '33 to indulge in the
excitement of the class party.
However, the victims will eventually
don formal evening attire and toddle
down to enjoy themselves in the Aztec
room of the Georgia Hotel on Friday
next. From 8:30 to 12:00 they will dance
to the accompaniment of Harold King's
A formal class party is something
new for the Seniors. However, since
they are to have no ball, they had to
do something about it. So "Soup and
Fish" will add to the general impres-
siveness of the Aztec Room on Friday.
With a peppery subject scheduled
for its meeting tonight, and with veterans like Kenneth Beckett and
Nathan Nemetz arguing it out with
Neil Perry and Milt Owen, the Parliamentary Forum promises handsome
fare for all who turn out.
The subject for the evening is, 'Resolved That Great Britain Must Eventually Travel the Moscow Road," the
same subject with which a yet unpicked team will match a ^eam of British debaters on November 22nd. Professors Day, Logan and Carrothers
promised to choose the most able
speakers from the material on hand
at the meeting and much interest is
being shown in the outcome.
It is certain that there are on the
campus more men and women interested in debating than have presented
themselves at the meetings so far, and
it is expected that tonight's debate,
which takes place In Arts 100 at 7:30,
will draw a host of new recruits.

Dr. W. A. Carrothers
Becomes Dominion
Relief Commissioner
Economics Expert One Of Committee Of
Three To Administer Relief To Single
Homeless Men In B. C.
Dr. W. A. Carrothers of the department of economies has
recently been appointed a member of the board of three which
will administer relief for single homeless men in the Province.
Dr. Carrothers states that there are some ten thousand
men of this classification in British Columbia and it will be the
duty of the board to care for these men. The Dominion government will pay twelve dollars per month per man for their upkeep. Existing camps will be utilized and work will be provided
by tiie Provincial authorities wherever possible.
Dr. W. A. Carrothers, one of the
most popular professors on the campus and a well known lecturer in
Vancouver, has received striking recognition of his work by being ap

"An attempt will be made to get
the men to do as much as possiblt of
the routine work around tht camps
so that expenses may bt kept down
with the object of supplying tomt
extras such as tobacco;" stated tht
new appointee.
Similar arrangements havt bean
made in the various provinces, and
it is hoped that this will stop tht
continual friction between Provinot
and Dominion aa regards tht responsibility for single men on relief. "It
is not thc legal responslbilty of tht
Dominion, but the Dominion has assumed the responsibility.
"Close co-operation between the
board of which I am a member, and
the provincial authorities will bt necessary if the plan is to wirk effectively," he clntlnued.
Board Has Not Met
Dr. Carrothers stated that so far
there have been no meetings of the
board, but that one is expected within the next few days. So far therefore,
no definite policy can be outlined, but
he stressed the fact that wherever
possible, existing organization will be
used and every attempt made to make
the men comfortable.

Historians Hear
Mary Warden On
Fr. Nationalism
"Nationalism is used to denote a
condition of mind among members,
of a nationality, perhaps already possessed of a national state; a condition
of mind in which loyalty to the ideal
or the fact of one's national state is
superior to all other loyalties and of
which pride in one's nationality and
belief in its intrinsic excellence and
in its 'mission' are integral parts."
This definition of nationalism by
Carlton Hayes was that accepted by
Miss Mary Warden ln her paper on
"Nationalism in France" read to the
Historical Society last Monday evening at the home of E. W. Kennley-
slde. Dr. Hugh Kennleyside, the first
president and founder of the society,
was present.
Nationalism was first consciously
and deliberately fostered by Napoleon, "that enlightened despot," who
among other things found the Legion
of Honour, an innovation designed to
stimulate deeds of valor for the state,
and such nationalistic forms as the
national flag, the national anthem
and the observance of national holidays were designed to arouse a national consciousness.
After the Revolution also, education became compulsory and universal and thus another tool was given
the state to inculcate national feelings and race pride in the young, and
in the twentieth century education
has been the most fertile field for
the propogatlon of nationalistic principles and the school children are
taught that France is the most glorious, best governed and freest country on earth.
She wants to gain something from
the world along economic lines and
it was the speaker's opinion that
France would only enter into an International organization for economic
reasons. A general discussion followed Miss Warden's speech.

Despite the fact that the Ubyssey has been running an
advertisement concerning an ultimatum in regard to the Totem,
there have been only eight or ten deposits to date. Although
the advertisement appears on this page, it appears to have been
considered a joke. It is not a joke. It never was inteded as a
joke. There is, no intention that studenta are to take it as a joke.
In other words it means just exactly what it says: "There will
be no Totem this year unless seven hundred deposits of one
dollar are made by November 10."
The reasons for making this statement are many. The most
cogent of these is as follows. The average student comes out
here for four years, during which time he pays ten dollars per
annum in Alma Mater fees. Now each year the Totem has
caused a deficit of roughly twenty-three hundred dollars. This
shortage has to be defrayed out of general funds. That means
that out of every student's fees, regardless of whether he buys
a Totem or no, one dollar and a quarter is taken for the Totem.
Now let us consider the annual sales. Roughly four hundred were sold last year. In other words, generally speaking,
THE TOTEM. That means that the average student contributes one dollar and a quarter every year for the annual, and in
his final year buys one copy. The average student, therefore,
pays seven dollars for one copy of the volume.
Now if the students themselves authorize the publication
of an annual either at an Alma Mater Meeting, or through the
medium of the deposits, one will be published. The amount
of work involved in the production of the annual, however,
necessitated starting by November 10 at the latest. At the risk
of being accused of sentimentality, we finish with the words
appearing in the University crest—Tuum Est.
It is with pleasure, indeed, that the Ubyssey is able to offer
its congratulations to Dr. W. A. Carrothers of the department
of economics for the recent honor which has been conferred
upon him. It is safe to say that the rest of the students will join
with the Ubyssey and offer theirs. A report of the appointment
appears on page one of this issue.
The appointment has considerable significance because of
the fact that Dr. Carrothers is a member of the department of
economics. It would appear that governments are realizing that
the clear thinking that is engendered within the walls of a
University is of use to the community as a whole. We venture
to say that there would not have been such general criticism
of the recent report of a group of business men, if the personnel
of the committee had contained at least one member of a
University faculty.
Dr. Carrothers has been appointed a member of the committee which will administer unemployment relief to single,
homeless men in this province. The students of this institution
should feel proud that a member of Faculty will be connected
with the administration of a problem which has puzzled the
heads of governments and students of government for some

This is a truly great event in the life of a columnist, or
even of an occasional observer. O. O. has swelled to the dimensions of an honest-to-goodness column, and is now a twenty-
four-emmer in size if not ln quality. I shrink, unlike the column*
when I consider the additional responsibilities which I now
incur. Frivolity looks so much more so in ten-point, somehow;
one has to be really careful what one says, for there is now a
chance that it may be read by somebody; an awe-inspiring prospect. ,

People have been asking whether the letter which appeared in the Correspondence Column last issue is authentic.
It is, as far as the Publications Board has been
That Letter! able to find out. It came through the mail, (with
two cents due, by the way, for which the A.M.S.
must pay; cheap at the price?), addressed, the vertical way up,
to the editor, and marked "Urgent." Myself and the Literary
Editor got quite excited about it when it arrived, since the
writing is large, sprawling, and feminine.
It was published more as a curiosity than as a letter, there
being no other signature, and the Ubyssey having a stern regulation against anonymous communications. But this, we all felt,
should be made an exception; it would have been the rankest
selfishness to hide such a light under a bushel.
I can't quite understand the allusion to the factory, but that
was certainly a masterly touch about the late meeting of the
Vancouver Institute; almost as good as another I heard, which
asserted that that affair was in very poor taste; of all things!
I am told that the part about the hooligans might have been
inspired by the recent sophomore elections. Judging from reports of that occasion, the writer might well
Soph Decorum have come from that particular level of culture. Of course Arts '35 was merely endeavoring to display its special brand of plaisanterie in ways which
doubtless seemed quite acceptable to itself. I have heard of
showings almost as bad at high-school gatherings, but those
who take pleasure in them do not usually get much farther than
the corner drug-store.
Oh well; how's your cold? That's too bad, mine's that way too.
Also my mother has discovered a new cough medicine, which

I believe that fully three-quarters of
the student body is going about enveloped in an aura of eucalyptus these days. Dr. Sedgewick himself flourishes a snow-
white handkerchief before the eyes of an awed English 9 class,
half of which speculates as to the possibility of filching a quantity from his ofice, providing that he keeps an emergency supply
there. It is only in the throes of acute rhynitis, (which seems
a more comforting name for the beastly thing) that one realizes
the definite disadvantage of being a member of the sex which

Of course, one doesn't. As indicated above, one steals. But
that is such a lowering thing to have to do—a confession, as I

At any rate, that is how I feel just now. Where's the Vapo-

Obviously a Poem of Passion. (See last line jthough there
appears to this critic to be a certain inconsistency in the especial

the alternating words of Latin and English extraction, the simple

to Say 'Balderdash' To His Freshman
As the Muck Editor was about to
learn the details of this unprecedented event, a genuine reporter
entered and conferred with the Ed-
in-Chlef and the Senior Ed., not to
mention the attractive Co-ed seated
on the sanctum sanctorum—the Editorial Desk.
"... all tht Analytical Chems are
In open rebellion. They're demanding their rights—whatever they are,"
I overheard.
This seemed to me to be the kind
of story I would enjoy, so I waylaid
the N. M. and got assigned to it.
Donning my parasol, I wambled gently over towards the Chem. labs.
But scarcely had I passed tht Ad.
building when tht voice of tumult
assailed my ears. I looked ahead of
me, but could see nothing. Quick as
a flash, I glanced over my shoulder.
A group of husky students came running and shouting from the direction
of the Gym. Screams and discarded
lunches came whizzing through the
atmosphere. Had the campus gone
bughouse, I wondered? By now they
were so close that I could see the
whites of their bloodshot eyes. They
seemed to be coming towards me ln
a solid phalanx, whatever that may
mean. I decided, on the spur of the
moment, that a change of scenery
was decidedly hi order. Finding that
I had a quorum present, I declared
myself unanimously in favor.
Within ten minutes I was safely
barricaded behind a cup of coffee,
talking to my friend, Duncan Eetit.

down the desperate criminal who refused to bt kind to his Adam's apple. His was the master mind that

recounted the amazing events of the

for a few minutes. Suddenly the
sound of clicking wheels ceased, only
to be replaced by the creaking of his
shoes as he rose to his full six feet.
This refers to his height, not to his
pedal extremeties. "To my laboratory," he intoned dramatically.
"Which way?"
- "Four to the left, down eight and
a half steps, six to the right, fifteen
two, fifteen four, and a pair is ten."
Tucked away in a little known
nook on the fourth floor of the Arts
Building I saw Duncan's private lab.
Flasks, bunsens, test-tubes, retorts,
and sarcastic remarks covered the
benches. A beaker of evil-smelling
liquid bubbled over a gas-ring. This,
Duncan explained, was his new
method of extinguishing cigarette
butts. "One simply drops the butt,"
he explained, "into that beaker, and
then all you have to do Is freeze It."
"Why go to all that trouble?" 1
"Just in case," he grinned, "if the
liquid was cold, the butt might generate steam, which would be inconvenient. Then it is frozen, just ln
case anybody stuck their finger into
It, which would be annoying. But
look over here."
He indicated a large screen hung
on one wall. "Is there any Mickey

Prof. McHootch
Discovers Info.
On U. Students
"Figuratively speaking, the students
of U.B.C. spend far too much time
inthe Caf." states Prof. Gargle McHootch, who has been working in
his own Stat. Lab. for the past fourteen months. He has been engaged
recently in doing intimate research
into the lives of University students
to get accurate information as to
where they spend their time, since
they have nothing else to spend.
Professor McHootch has prepared
some Interesting if not enlightening
charts on the subject He haa had
a number of typical and sane problem-cases of both sexes under his
observation for the past three weeks.
His method is to follow them
throughout the day from the time
they arrive at the first lecture—the
average hour is 9:06%—till 1 a.m.,
or later as the circumstances permit,
when they turn in for the night.
Though he has found many striking differences' in the way students
waste their time, due to sex, temperament, etc., there Is sufficient uniformity in the subject's adaptions for
the data to be made into invaluable
statlstorlcal charts. Mr. Co-Co is
now working on a possible use of
these charts.
Take, for instance, one phase of
the study—the work done In the Library. It has been revealed that
only 168 of the 180 test-casts have
enterad the chateau during the first
two weeks of the term. All but one
of these were Freshmen and ettee
asking for their library cards. The
single exception was a Senior who
had a suspicion that his room-mate
was asleep ln the stacks. This fraternal anxiety is believed to be due
to the fact that the missing roommate was wearing the anxious one's
best suit, with ten cents in the pocket that the owner was desirous of
putting back into circulation.
Another case where Freshmen
cause abnormalities ln the charts is
their exception'to the rule that more
students go to the magazine room
than anywhere else in the library
when bored. Possibly the youngsters
go downstaris for a smoke, being
unaware said room exists.
Attendance at the Library of the
student body may be represented by
a normal curve gently rising from
zero at the beginning of the year to
20,573 during exam week, with major
fluctuations during the week essays
are due.
The Professor has data on everything from parked cars to noon-hour
lectures. He knows whet is the favorite brand of lipstick at this University, and declares he can pick it
out by the taste alone. He knows
the janitor's Theme Song. He knows
what the Sciencemen do and say In
their sanctuary.
"If you don't know what the score
is, ask McHootch."
ting away, I remember thinking to
"Which ot m is going to say 'Stop
it'!" I asked.
"Cease being an irreverent and irrelevant lunatic," he commanded,
"and watch that screen."
After a few minutes the screen began to glow with a bluish light And
then . . . believe me, brother, or believe me not upon that screen appeared tht fact of . . . Chang Suty!

Varsity Hoop Team
Drop Opening Game To
Adanacs; 33-27 Score
Adanacs Win In Overtime Period — Students
Start Well-Ken Wright Start For Varsity
—Mayers Up To Usual Form—Province
And Varsity Play Wednesday Night
In a cyclonic overtime finish that rocked 1000 frenzied fans
into a delirious basketball spin at the V.A.C. gym Saturday
night, the New Westminster Adanacs netted three baskets to
draw first blood from their arch-rivalt, Varsity, by a 33-27 score.
The hero of the game as far ag Varaity ia concerned wag
young Ken Wright, playing his first game at guard. With but
30 seconds left to play and the studenta one basket behind,
Wright took a pass from Osborne in the center of the floor and
scored with a shot that never varied an inch after it left big
hands. Previous to this he had garnered 6 points and had given
tht best exhibition on tht floor of timt and didn't blow their whistles
snaring rebounds, passing, and generalship.
Pint Ball Close
Tht game opened fast and tht
teams battled for fivt minutes without a score. Finally Wally Mayers
scored on a frtt shot but Varaity
forged ahead by S points on baskets
by Let and Wright. Varsity clearly
outplayed Adanacs for tht lint ten
minutes, with Osborne and Wright
at guard and Nicholson, Campbell
and Lee on the forward lint. Wright,
though not vtry tall, took every rebound from tht Varsity board and
passed to one of the forwards, who
would take tht ball across tht lint
in tht prtscribed ten seconds. When
Adanacs gained possession, Varsity
would drop back into zone defense
and tht New Westminster forwards
were checked to a standstill. Adanacs substituted dlaaum for Gifford
and McEwen for Shiles and the
stocky guard proceeded to sink two
long shots to put Adanacs in the lead
again. Half time found the score 12-
10 in their favor.
Mayers Scores Three Baskets
ln the second half, Varsity opened
with Bardsley at forward and Mclntyre at guard. But at this time
Wally Mayers, the husky Adanac
flash, went wild and scored three
baskets that sent the New Westminster fans Into a rafter-rattling shriek.
Jimmy Bardsley retaliated with a
pot shot for Varsity, d'Easum scored
again for tht Adanacs, and then
Laurie Nicholson scored on a nice
effort from the side. Doug Fraser
converted his third straight foul.
With five minutes to go the score
stood 25-19 in favor of Adanacs. Then
Cy Lee dropped a beautiful shot, Ken
Wright followed with another, and
then, with the crowd on their feet
with 30 seconds left to play, Wright
dropped a shot that went straight as
a die from the centre of the floor.
When the roar of the crowd had died
down sufficiently, referee Yeo explained that the teams would play
another five minutes to settle the
Pi Campbell fouled Doug Fraser
and was chased for four personals.
It looked like a strategic time to put
Randy Tervo, scoring ace, in the
game, but Coach Allen didn't figure
that way and sent in the youthful
"Horses" Douglas. It was the first
Senior "A" game for "Horses" and
the curly-haired portslder went all
out to do his stuff. Doug Fraser
scored his fourth foul shot and Shiles
scored on a pretty basket to put tiie
Adanacs out in front by 3 points.
Osborne sank a foul shot for the
students but Mayers, after missing a
foul shot, flipped the ball from his
feet into the basket to put the Adanacs further in front. Bardsley
scored a foul shot to end Varsity
scoring and Mayers, showing little or
no respect for his Old Alma Mater,
dropped another one. Just before
the whistle Ken Wright rushed In on
a fast play and rimmed the basket
before he was shoved Into a front-
row lap. The whistle ended the
game with the Adanacs still three
baskets In front.
Students In Good Shape
Varsity, though beaten, were more
than pleased with their first showing
and figure that with a few more
workouts together they will be prime
for another Canadian title.
The new ten-second rule tended to
speed up the game, as predicted, but
It also resulted In more heavy
checking and, consequently, more
fouls. With every man on the floor
on one side of the center life, the
boys find It hard to get out of each
others way.
"Buck" Yeo and Hal Straight were
referee and umpire respectively. Both
men kept the boys In action all the
too often.
Ken Wright Best
Ken Wright was easily tht pick of
tht studtnts, whilt Mayers aad
dlasura did matt of tht work lor
tht Adanacs. Bandy Ttrvo and Rann
Mattheson didn't get a chance to
show, whilt Osbornt and Meuttyrt

Play Wednesday
Varsity will play thtir second game
of tht schedule on Wednesday night
at eight o'clock, whtn they oppose
the peppy Province squad in the
New Westminster arena.
Owing to a most unfortunate misconstruction of information regarding the sale of student tickets for last Wednesday
night's Canadian Rugby game, we commented editorially on the
alleged policy of the Faculty Council on student affairs regarding this matter.
Since that time, however, revelations have been forthcoming to vindicate this committee entirely, and accordingly
an apology is here offered to them, together with our sincere
The truth of the matter is that the question in issue was
never discussed or decided upon by the faculty committee. Instead of this, one member of the Committee, acting not in the
capacity of a member but as an individual, undertook for justifiable, and we think, far-sighted reasons, to consult with two of
the members of Student's Council,, and to influence them
against selling student tickets on the campus for that game.
The reasons this member advanced were not along the
lines outlined in the Sportorial of last Friday, but were certain
reasons and opinions held privately as a result of very close
connections with the whole Canadian rugby situatioa Alter his
consultation with,the two members of student's council, that
body adopted his suggestions and the tickets were not sold.
Big Four
Lose 9-5
Despite Harry Pearson's sensational
75-yard run for a touchdown in the
dying moments of the game, Varsity
took another one on the chin in the
Big Four League Saturday when they
bowed to the heavier and more experienced V.A.C. team by a count of
In the first quarter Varsity was
clearly outclassed, Webster, Kendall,
Merrltt and Shields of the Vacs ripped holes in the student line to pile
up 9 points without a reply. Throughout the game, V.A.C. made 5 times
the number of yards of Varsity, on
twice as many scrimmages.
V.A.C. Score
Vacs got their only touchdown
when Ed Kendall raced around the
end for thirty yards to give them
first down. On the next play Bruiser Webster grunted and groaned his
way over for the try. Shields, who
previous to this had scored a deadline kick, converted to make the
count 7-0. Then Bolton was rouged
and Shields scored another deadline
kick to end the Vac's scoring at 9-0
at the end of the first quarter.
From that time on the game developed into a contest of V.A.C. line-
smashing and Varsity defensive work
with the students showing great
stamina when In the shadow of their
own goal post. Varsity missed one
good chance in the third quarter
when Hedreen tossed the ball 30 yds.
to Farrington in open field, but the
ball was too high and slithered from
Dick's hands. In the last quarter,
Hedreen followed up his own kick
and was about to take possession on
the Vac's 15-yard line, but the ball
bounced the wrong way and was
snatched up for a V.A.C. first down.
Harry Pearson Runs 75 Yards
With about 4 minutes left to play,
and the crowd about ready to leave,
Harry Pearson pulled the Circus Act
of the year. Just as Ed Kendall of
the Vacs dropped back to make a
forward pass he was charged and
threw weakly. Pearson intercepted
in open field and proceeded to burn
up the turf with three Vacs in hot
pursuit. Harry made no mistake of
his opportunity and outraced them
for 85 yards to score. The ten Varsity supporters went wild!
Greatly cheered up, the students
went back into the fray fighting, but
the whistle cut short any hopes they
had of making up the 4-polnt deficit.

City Game 3-0
Doing to tht Ex-Magee's what tht
Varsity English Ruggers did to tht
Rowing Club, tht Senior City Canadian Football team marked up its
first victory on Saturday at Douglas
Park with a 3-0 score.
Tht campus crew played a confident and improved game with the
help of Moffat, the 135 pound Varaity
quarterback, in contrast to a rather
unorganised effort on the part of
the Ex-High School club.
The first quarter got off to a good
start with Varsity eleven Immediately
pressing Ex-Magee back to their own
20-yard line. Showing very poor
combination, Magee made a feeble
effort at recovery but were held.
Moffat then placed two neat deadline
kicks in close succession to give the
Varsity score a two point boost.
Picking up a bit after this, the
high school squad regained lost territory, but Varsity, with a couple of
sensational runs, carried the ball
back to the opposing team's 20-yard
line and Moffat made his third deadline kick to end the quarter.
The Red and Black team took a
much more aggressive stand in the
second quarter, only failing to complete then* well directed forward
passes by a vtry small margin. Half
timt found the score 3-0 for U.B.C.
The game got under way again ln
the second half with Doc Burke's
squad minus one of their star players, Ashby, who was very badly injured. Magee continued her aerial
attack but failed to gain yardage.
From this point on, the contest was
very slow, neither team featuring any
outstanding plays. Tne game ended
with no further score.

Grass Hockey Team
Loses To Cricketers
Varsity's second eleven grass hockey team met the "Cricketers" on
Saturday at Connaught Park In the
second round of the Mainland Grass
Hockey League with rather disastrous results, finishing on the negative end of a 14-0 count.
U.B.C, playing with practically a
new team, put up a good fight, most
of the play centering around their
own twenty-five. Chave and Tull
played well for Varsity, but the rest
of the team will need more practice
before they hit their proper stride.

sending the Rowing Club down to
a 16-0 defeat.
Half-Time Score 5-0
The first half, an uphill fight,
showed a decided edge for the University with the three-quarter line
repeatedly running the ball far into
the Club territory and the forwards
dribbling well. The first try of the
game came within about five minutes
of half-time. The score came after
Stobie and Wood advanced the ball
close to the line to let Pyle go over
for the counter. Sanderson converted to make the half-time score 5-0.
Stobie Scores
The second half, playing downhill,
was more colorful with Stobie scoring on a 40 yard run shortly after
the kick-off. Foster made a fine run
for the third try. After the kick
from center thc Club forced the ball
up to the Varsity 1 yard line but a
fine run by Laury Todd brought
them out of danger. Stobie brought
the last try after a 40 yard run
through the whole Rowing Club team
and Sanderson converted a difficult
kick. The game ended after a long
dribble by Stead who brought the
ball to the Club 25 yard line.

Pat Ellis Stars
Dalton's Third Division team went
down to a hard-fought defeat to Ex-
Britannia, 6-0. While Varsity worked
hard to even the score, lack of experience defeated them. The first
half ended scoreless but T. White
scored a try for Ex-Britannia shortly
after play was resumed. Ten minutes later Don McGreachy made a
long run and passed to Kyle McDonald who scored the last try. Neither
try was converted.

from the field.
