Chosen By
Mystery  Play "Alibi" Chosen
By Players Club For Spring
"Alibi," by Agatha Christie and
Michael Morton has been chosen as
the Spring Play to be presented in
March, it was announced at a meeting of the Players' Club on Tuesday.
Dr. HMiuer gave a short talk on
the selection of a play which has
been unusually difficulty this year.
It was decided that one unlike tiie
ordinary run of Spring Plays was
necessary, this meant the choice
of either a mystery or a romantic
play. After mueh discussion the
committee finally deckled on "Alibi,"
a dramatisation of a well-known
a/wms^^tftf ^Fgeefle*iaHf a«^w
This play has fourteen characters,
five of which are women and the
remaining nme, men. The detective,
Hercule Poirot, has a keen sense of
humour, and a strict code of honour
and decency. The murdered man
is Sir Roger Ackroyd. Among other
characters are Geoffrey Raymond,
Sir Roger's secretary; Flora Ackroyd,
his niece; Mrs. Ackroyd, Flora's
mother; Major Blunt a big game
hunter; Dr. Sheppard, a friend of
the Ackroyd family; Caryl, the doctor's sister, who is desperately in
love With Poirot; Parker, a butler;
Inspector Davies, a country inspector, who is under the impression that
he is a "made man" if he can solve
the murder; Ralph Paton, ,who, at
the opening of the play, appears to
be In love with Caryl, but is really
secretly married to Ursula Bourne.
This girl is apparently an ordinary
house maid, but, as the play proceeds, ahe turns out to be something
considerably more. Another character is Mr. Hammond, a solicitor,
while Margot, a French servant woman, has a small part.
Murder Scene
At the end of the first act Sir
Roger is found stabbed in his study,
and ten minutes before his voice
was heard from his room. A* the
knowledge of the identity of the
murderer would spoil the effect of
the play, every member of the club
has been sworn to secrecy concerning this.
The scenery of the play Is more
than usually complicated. The curtain rises to show the main hall of
Sir Roger's house, the library on one
side, Sir Roger's study at the back,
and the main staircase on the other
side. In the last scene the murdered
man's study Is shown.
Preliminary try-outs will be held
in the Auditorium at 2 p.m. on Friday next.
No More
Bursaries ?
Those scholarships and bursaries
dependent upon endowments and
securities for their finds will probably not be available for students in
the future, it was revealed at the
Board of Governors' special meeting
Tuesday night .This fact was disclosed in a report of the Committee
on bursaries and scholarships, under
ehajtemansjup of Professor Logan.
The number of bursaries so affected
is limited.
Clever students who perhaps must
depend upon, scholarships for the
continuance of their studies will be
the losers, for now,   if ever,   are
tolarships a mueh needed help,
[ore detailed Information about
the matter is not avaHsote from the
committee which made the announcement, nor from the President's
University of BeCe
Is Compared With
Eastern Colleges
Both the fees and the number of
students have risen considerably
from last year's figures in practically
all Canadian universities, -stated
President Klinck to the Ubyssey
Wednesday. U.B.C. is one of the
few exceptions.
Dr. Klinck has recently returned
from an extensive tour of all Canadian colleges west of Montreal, and
he states that conuitions at U.B.C.
are most favourable when compared
with those In eastern institutions.
McGill University, for example, has
a considerable deficit, whereas the
local college has always balanced its
During his tour, President Klinck
attended two conferences of the
heads of four western universities,
with a view to co-ordinating work
as much as possible. The fact that
all western institutions with the exception of U.B.C, expanded rapidly
during prosperity has placed an additional burden upon them at the
present time. The governments of
the three prairie provinces have notified these universities that they must
expect a cut, and the conferences
worked out a long term policy.
This is equivalent to admitting
that the conditions of to-day may be
expected to remain for some years,
said the President, but U.B.C. has
already been prepared for hard times
and does not expect any more cuts
in  its grant,  he concluded.
John Wootton Brown, son of Lieut-
Col, and Mrs. A. M. Brown of the
University Hill, died quietly early
Thursday morning. Death was due to
a heart seirure. For some years Brown
had been suffering from a heart weakness contracted during a serious illness—a weakness revealed to but few
of his closest friends.
He was a second year student ln the
Faculty of Applied Science, having
obtained his secondary education at
the University Hill School. He was an
active member of the Officers' Training Corps, and an ardent devotes of
many sports, including Canadian Rugby.
Although only in hla second year
Brown had acquired a large circle of
friends both on the campus and among
the residents of University Hill where
he was both well-known and popular. He was a brother of Tom Brown,
W33 Rhodes Scholar, now studying
law at Oxford. The Ubyssey extends
the sincere sympathy of Brown's many
student friends to his parents and
family in their sad loss.
Library Grant
Ready for Use
_____ V
The Library Journal of December
IS, on file in the Magazine Room, contains an interesting article on the
grants recently made by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to
the libraries of Canadian universities and colleges. Grants totalling
1187,800 were awarded, all iii three
annual payments. The money is to be
expended on books for undergraduate
reading in the liberal arts. Purchases
for research, for studies in applied
science and agriculture, or for professional schools, are outside the scope
of the fund.
Subject to this general rule, 1131,-
100 of the grant is given unconditionally to sixteen libraries, while the remaining 856,700 is recommended "upon submission of a plan of operation
satisfactory to the Executive Committee."
The largest grant given is for $15,-
4)00, payable for three years at. the
rate of 99,00 a year. Seven Canadian
universities and colleges received thia
sum—Acadia, Queen's, Victoria andj
University. Colleges of Toronto, Western Ontario (London), Alberta and
British Columbia. Laval (Quebec) is
to receive 96,000 as also does McMaster'
.(Hamilton). Newfoundland Memorial
College receives $3,000, Assumption
(Sandwich, Ont.) $2,400; Mount Royal
(Calgary) $1,500, Stanstead (Que.) $1,-
800, Luther (Regina) $2,400.

Three Debate Teams Chosen
For Heavy Spring Schedule
California Debate Assured—Perry, Dryer Leave Monday Night
"I am proud to announce that debating is at last coming Into Its own
on tbe U.B.C. campus," Neil Perry
exclaimed jubilantly. "The rumoured trip to California is now definitely assured. Vic Dryer and I
will be leaving for California on
Monday night. It is the second time
In .the history of the university that
a debating team will have been sent
to California.
"Our schedule consists of two debates, ln both of which we will upheld the affirmation and attempt to
prove that "Western Civilization
must follow the Moscow Road." The
first debate will be with Stanford
University, January 10. Stanford is
one of the leading universities in
the west and is in consequence extremely exclusive In fact most prospective students are said to put in
their application at the same time
that they take out their birth certificate. A great percentage of the
students are pursuing post-grad,
studies, consequently we expect
very stiff opposition from them.
"California State University is
probably the largest and one of the
most prominent of the coast colleges.
The student membership numbers
12,000 and since only two of these
are to be selected we are again looking forward to a closely contested
debate. It is the second time in the
history of debating at the U. of California that admission to a debate is
being charged, the only other Instance being the Oxford debate of
As proof of the Importance of debating on this campus it is interesting to note that three teams from
Varsity will be debating on the
same evening. The McGeown Cup or
Inter-collegiate series being held on
the same night aa the B.C.-Califor-
nla debate, January 30," states Er-.
nle Brown, a member of the team
touring to Saskatoon to do battle
w: th the U .of Saskatchewan. Brown
was one of the student-founders of
the Parliamentary Forum, and has
taken a great interest  in  it since
that time. He is at present vice-
president of the Forum, a member
of Arts '34, the Historical Society
and the International Relations Club.
"I feel certain that our chances
for victory in the Intercollegiate debates are greater than ever before,"
remarked Nathan "Sonny" Nemetz,
in an interview with the Ubyssey
regarding the Intercollegiate Debates. Sonny is a member of Arts
'34 and an honor student in history.
He has been with the Forum since
its Inception, taking part in intercollegiate debates last year against
Home Team Hosts
The U.B.C. team which will be
host to Manitoba consists of William
Whimster and Frank P. Miller. Bill
Whimster is another debater of wide
experience, having taken part ln
two intercollegiate debates. In his
high school daya he was a member
of the Penticton team which won the
Okanagan championship.
This is the first major debate In
which Miller is taking part, but
since he is another member of the
intrepid Arts '34 much* can be expected of him. He has been with
the Players' Club for some years
and has played leads'in two Christ
mas plays. This is his second year
with the Forum.

Students are reminded that
the fee of $1.15 is due at the
time ot the sitting. There are a
few students who did not pay,
however, and these students are
asked to do so at once.

Pub. Board
To Edit Sun
Readers of the Vancouver Sun will
get a thrill, whether pleasurable or
not remains to be seen, when they
open their evening paper on Tuesday next.
Carrying out what promises to be
an annual- event, members of the
Publications Board will put out the
first edition of the Sun on January
17. Students will take positions of
responsibility at the City Desk, the
Telegraph Desk, arid even in the editor's office, while seasoned newspapermen are expected to be taken
to the hospital in every stage of
nervous breakdown after the strenuous day of watching the youngsters
gum the works.
Members of the Ubyssey staff are
at present contending for jobs st
which they have-been easting longing glances for many moons. Th)
only catch ln the plans is the fact
that the prospective big-time journalists will have to rise and shine
in the exceedingly wee sma's, as all
must be on duty by six-thirty Tuesday morning,
Oldsters on the Ubyssey will recall
the excitement of their day at the
Sun. It was during the Stadium
campaign, and copies of the paper
were sold on the campus to help
the fund. Stadium plans were featured on the front page of the daily,
in addition to the regular features.
Fascinated cubs spent the day at
the Police Court, and other well-
known places of entertainment about
the city, returning to. headquarters
exhausted but exhllairated.
During the week following the
U.B.C. invasion of the Sun, the' staff
of the Washington Daily will pay the
Vancouver paper a visit, and interesting comparisons may be made between the methods of the two undergraduate bodies.
Roles Are
Musical Society Production To
Get Under Way Shortly
Tentative results of the try-outs
for the principal roles in the Gilbert
and Sullivan light opera, "Iolanthe,"
to be produced this year by the
Musical Society, were announced today by Haydn Williams, musical director.
The title role of Iolanthe is assigned to Eleanor Walker, Arts '34.
Sophie Witter, who interpreted the
parti of "Ruth" in "The Pirates of
Penzance" and "Buttercup" in "Pinafore" has been chosen as Queen
of the Fairies. The part of "Phyllis,"
an Arcadian sbeperdess and ward in
Chancery, will be played by Kathleen Coles, Arts '39, who plsyed
"Hebe" hi last year's production.,
Eleanor Leith, Wlnnlfred Alston and
Doris McDiarmid have been chosen
for the parts of the three other
fairies, Cecil, Leila and Fleta.
Susceptible Chancellor
Arthur McLeod is Strephpn, son
of Iolanthe, and an Arcadian shepherd "stout in moderation." Nelson
Allen, prominent in the last two productions has been chosen as the Lord
Chancellor, the very "susceptible"
guardian of pretty young wards in
Chancery. MacKay Esler who played
Frederick In "The Pirates," will be
Lord Tolloller, the noble lover, and
Charles Armstrong, who was tht
bosun ln last year's opera will be
Earl of Mountararat. Gordon Stead

Jack Emerson, Harold King, and
the "British Columbians" will share
the spotlight Tuesday noon when
they will play at a big Pep Meeting
in honour of the visiting Yak\ma
Junior College basketball team. The
visitors play Tuesday night ln the
U.B.C. gym and hope to turn the
tables on the home boys, who vanquished them on their recent Washington tour.
The Yakima boys will arrive Monday night and will be taken care of
by the various fraternities. If possible, they will be introduced from
the stage at Tuesday's Pep Meeting.
The game Tuesday night will be the
first major encounter to be played
In the home gym this year.
Three band numbers will be played
by the boys, including a special arrangement of "Hail, U.B.C," The
following members of the "British
Columbians" will be out: Malcolm
Pretty, drums; Bernie Jackson, Senior Class president, banjo; his brother Keith Jackson saxophone; Claude
Hill, saxophone, Louie Burke, saxophone and tin whistle; Geo. "Corn"
Hewitt, trombone; Walter Poole,
base; Harold King, trumpet; and
Jack Emerson, piano.
The star entertainer on the above
impressive-looking roster will doubtless be Claude "Heel," who has pan-
nicked the students at pep meets for
years. Claude has promised to intermingle some hot clarinet playing
with a, little plain and fancy barking. In addition to the band numbers,
Emerson, Richardson, and Hewitt are
working on a three-violin feature.
Lyle Stewart and Gordie Hilker of
the Pep Club may spring a couple
of surprises reminiscent of the debut
of the Pierce twins . It is rumoured
that the "Peppers" are working hard
In an effort to boost the entertainment of the program. At any rate
Stewart, Swift, and Tremaine will
be on hand to lead the students in
a yell of welcome for the xakima
The show will get under way at
12:15 Tuesday and a big crowd is
expected to thrill to the tantalizing
tempos of Emerson and cohorts as
well as welcome the visiting crew.
Stadium Plan
The report on the condition and
proposed Improvements of the stadium field complied by mr. F. A.
Lazenby, Sc. '25, with the help of
Mr. Phil Barrett, Sc. '32, and Mr.
Wootten of the Parks Board, was
read at Council meeting Monday.
Discussion of it was held over until
next meeting.
Conversion of the field from its
present saucer shape to a crown
shape is advocated in the report.
Drains will run every few feet from
just beyond the touch line, the lowest point; the ground will rise to the
outside track. Thus the high levels
from whence will be the centre of
the field and the track.
The maximum cost of the project
if carried out as recommended would
be |2400, but according to Whimster,
some modification of the plan will
probably be adopted. Two modifications that suggest themselves cost
about $1500 and $1100 respectively, the
former being applicable If the present drains are found to be in good
working order,, and the latter if minor alterations, with the insertion of
herring-bone, is practicable. These
will be debated at the next meeting.
The Stadium Fund is at present
only $1000. Extra .funds will be
raised by waivers, according to
This play ia a delightful satire on
the romantic pastoral drama ao popular with the Victorians. It also directs typical Gilbertlan shafts of wit
at established British institutions
which tradition has made sacrosanct,
particularly the House of Lords and
its pompous peers. It is declared
that "Iolanthe" contains some of the
most tuneful music written by Sir
Arthur Sullivan for any of his long
list of operettas.
Accurate Settings
The society Is commencing on an
intensive program of rehearsals in
the afternoons and evenings, and is
bending every effort to make the
production a success. Mr. Williams
has taken great pains to gain exact
information on the setting and stage
directions of the original performance. 'He is confident that the production this year will come up to
that of last year in every respect
Lawrence Jack
Rhodes Winner
An event of Importance occurring
during the Ubyssey's annual holiday
was the selection of Lawrence B.
Jack, a graduate ot the class of '34,
as Rhodes scholar from British Columbia for the year just past.
After entering the university from
the enviable position of first place
among the Junior Matriculants of
the province, thus winning the Governor-General's medal, in the year
1927, he graduated here, after majoring in Economics with first class
honors added to his list of achievements, He has now completed his
attendance at U.B.C. by carrying off
the additional honors in the form of
B.C.'s Rhodes scholarship.
His home is in Hatzic, B ,C. His
parents are both graduates of McGill University. He has one brother,
who is now In attendance at this
university, being a member of the
class of Arts '35.
Lawrence Jack will be remembered
also for his performance on the Big
Four Rugby team, for which he
played for three years. Bill Jack
is carrying on his brother's work
as a member of the present squad.
From among a group of sixty applicants for an Economics Scholarship at the University of California
Lawrence Jack had the honor of
being the one chosen for the position, which is a teaching fellowship.
He is at present engaged in this capacity at the University of California, but will proceed to Oxford for
the faH term

Fraternitiea are now in the throes of the annual spring
rushing of freshmen. Strenuous efforta are heing made to im-
presa the desired candidatea with the favorable agpects of a
certain group. The time haa now definitely arrived when fresh-
men must make a personal decision about this question.
It is a controversial subject, and one that has been thrashed
out ad nauaeum in the columns of the Ubysgey in years past.
It mugt be realised however that fraternitiea are now an integral
part of university life and ae such mugt be recognised by the
freshman. He must remember that the great majority of atud-
ents do not belong to any fraternal organisation. There are many
other opportunities for social outlet. If, however, the freshman
ig asked to join one of theae organisations he mugt take a great
many items into consideration.
He must be certain that he is joining a congenial group. He
is only cauaing grief for himself if he joints a fraternity for social reagons and finds he has nothing in common with the mem-
He must investigate fully the financial obligations before
committing himself. It is an unfortunate fact that far too often
new members are persuaded to join a fraternity without first
having the matter of expense fully explained to him. An effort
to keep up with the activities of a fraternity in which he can
not be as free with his money as are the other members may
cause unfortunate consequences.
The prospective candidate must beware of high-pressure
salesmanship. In the past, methods more effective than strictly
honorable have been used by certain fraternities to persuade a
rushee to accept their invitation. A clear judgment is necessary
to pick the fraternity in which the candidate thinks he will be
most congenial.
In an effort to apply a curb to this super-salesmanship that
has been so prevelant in the past, the Inter-Fraternity Council
have recently issued new bidding regulations. Bidding Day is
the third Tuesday of the spring term. Each fraternity delegates
one member to present the invitation to the prospective member. The delegate can remain in conversation with the rushee
for no longer than fifteen minutes. There shall be a period of
silence extending from time of issuing the invitation till the following Thursday, during which there shall be no association or
communication between members of fraternities and prospective members.
Answers to all invitations received are to be returned to
the Faculty Representative on the Inter-Fraternity Council on
the Thursday following Bidding Day. The various fraternities
are then at liberty to approach the men who have accepted their
There are now ten days until Bidding Day. Freshmen
should have ample opportunity to take a definite stand on their
fraternity attitude before that date.

The centenary of the death of
Sir Walter Scott on September 21
last was the cause of a great deal
of critical discussion of the man and
his literary accomplishments. An appreciative biography by John Buch-
an, the novelist, and articles in most
of. the standard journals of criticism
have evoked interesting argument as
to the 'worth of the Waverley novels
and the extent to which they are
read in this age of changing standards. The lecture next Saturday
evening will present some of these
points, old and new, in an effort to
place Scott in his relation to the
English novel.
[  Correspondence
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your editorial, "Invidious Mis-
lakes," in the November 18 issue,
forces me to the conclusion that tha
Ubyssey staff still falls to realise
the necessity of verifying its Information before bursting Into print.
While granting that many mistakes
were undoubtedly made ln connection with the Stadium, mistakes
which require very little Intelligence
to detect or criticise at this late date,
nevertheless, ths text of the editorial shows that the writer is in complete ignorance of most of the facts
of the ease.
In the first place, a qualified civil
engineer was employed to survey tho
site and design drainage facilities,
while a member of the Civil Engineering Department gave his tune and
experience in checking the plans and
the work. It seems that ths present
trouble lies In the fact that, owing
to the texture of the soil, clajj haa
clogged the spaces between the tiles
thus preventing the water from,running away. Contrary to your suggestion that drainage was entirely
overlooked, the greater part of the
Stadium Fund was spent directly or
indirectly on drainage facilities.
You conclude with the following
unfortunate statement:
"The fault, of course, lies in the
hot-headeness of the Stadium Com-1
mittee who made their arrangements
without going fully into the situation."
To the best of my knowledge, the
duties of the Stadium Committee
began and ended with the organlz-.
Ing of the campaign and the collect-
big ot tiie money. They did, however, consider the advisability of letting a contract, against the obvious
advantages of accepting the Offer of
the University Administration to
handle the construction with their
staff and equipment. All work on
the field and track was under the
direction of Professor Buck, of the
Faculty of Agriculture, whose duty
it was to superintend all improvements to the University Campus.
It must be very heartening for the
men and women who were members
of the committee to see their best
efforts unjustly criticised by students who obviously were not sufficiently in touch with campus affairs at that time to know what they
are talking about.
I feel that the Ubyssey might better serve the Interests of the student
body by advancing some constructive proposals, and thus exert its undoubted influence on the campus to:
wards encouraging, rather than hindering, those who are in charge of
student affairs.
Yours sincerely,
ROBERT H. SMITH,  Sc.  '31
Editor's Note: We wish to thank
the great Mr. Smith for his erudite
effort, but we would suggest that he
write his letter with the editorial in
question In front of him. In the
first place, if Mr. Smith will consult the issue in question, he will
notice that we said 'drainage engineer,' not 'civil engineer as he quoted
In the second place, once the Stadium Committee "had considered the
advisability of letting a contract,
against the obvious advantages of
accepting the offer of the University
Administration to handle the construction with their staff and equipment," it was their duty, by Implication both moral and legal, to continue
in their splendid work and supervise
the University to see that the money
was spent In the way it should have
been. In this connection, lt is interesting to note that the trimmings,
rockeries and such, were constructed
first, not after the field was properly
finished. The result was that the
original plans, which we have no
doubt were excellent, had to be
abandoned in the end.
In the third place, we would differ
with our worthy correspondent for
saying that "It must be very heartening to the men and women who
were members of the committee to
see their best efforts unjustly crlt-
icisd by students who were not sufficiently in touch with campus affairs
at the time to know what they are
talking about." The mere fact that
a student or students spend "valuable time" bringing forth their "best
efforts" is not criterion that the
"best efforts" are good. If their
work is not good, they deserve no
credit whatever for having produced

oh "ltotnan Vehicles," were read at
the last regular meeting of the
Classics Club, held at the home of
Prof, and Mrs. Todd, 1866 Wesbrook
Commencing with a brief introductory exposition on the importance of
road communication, Mr. BlackaUer
went on to describe the methods of
building Roman highways. Along
these arteries of traffic a regular
postal service was maintained, the
cost of this service being borne hi
some caies by the central government, and in others by the towns
through which the mail route passed.
Although the Romans buUt excellent highroads in the provinces, a
sorry lack of branch roads left the
country between the great trunk
roads In s comparative state of
The second paper, read by Miss
Leach, was concerned with Roman
vehicles, Tracing the growth of the
wheeled conveyances of Rome from
the first clumsy wooden-wheeled ox
carts to the swift racing chariots of
the later Empire, Miss Leach went
on to speak of more methods of
transportation. Two-wheeled vehicles were In preponderance In the
Roman world, but four-wheeled'conveyances were In use. These wagons
resembled the charabanc in construction and were used for the much
the same purpose. Within the city of
Rome wheeled vehicles were a privilege reserved for those who held
high offices. Consequently other
means of transportation were used.
Litters carried by four or more stalwart slaves carried the Roman matron to the Games, and the Senator
to the Senate house. Only men ot
Senatorial rank could be carried In
a litter. The use of the Palanquin
by women was unrestricted. The
demand for carriages and chariots
became so great that the wheelwrights' trade gradually evolved.
♦ In the business section of the meeting the casts for two plays were selected. These extracts wUl be presented later by the Club.
After refreshments, served in the
dining-room, Latin songs were sung
by the assemblage. The meeting adjourned with a vote of thanks to
Dr. and Mrs. Todd.
German Painters
Form Subject Of
Art Club Lecture
Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein,
early German artists, formed the
subject of a lecture by Mrs. Royce
to the Art Club Wednesday evening,
at the home of Miss MurieT Goode.
Although entirely different in manner, these artists are generally recognised as representing the highest
point ever attained by German art,
stated the speaker. They are both
of the same period, but Holbein was
Duer's junior by twenty-six years.
The former had less of the mysticism and spirituality of the .Middle
Ages in his work, and was a popular
painter ln court circles.
Durer, on tha other hand, was born
amid the atmosphere of the Italian
Renaissance, and had suoh4"men al
Leonardo da Vind and Luther among
his associates . Like most groat men
of the tune he was extremely versatile, but he wttl be remembered
chiefly for Jbis painting.
His works may be divided into
three periods. The first Is Imaginative and dreamy, with too muoh attention to detail. His second began
when he visited Italy In 1494, and
lt is new that we And him painting
Madonnas and religious pictures. The
third period shows many influences
of Protestantism, and detail gives
way to ths more impressionistic typo
of painting.

You're Telling Me!
"Did I ever teU you," said the
Cap'n," about my invention to turn
out the electric light? WeU, you see,
I had a single bulb handing from the
centre of the room. I would read
in bed until I was sleepy, and then
I had to get up to turn out the light,
which woke me up all over again.
"So I devised a plan to turn off
the light from my bedside. First of
all, I had a candle burning by my
bed. Also, close to hand, I had a
string tied to the bed-post. This
string passed through a hook in the
ceiling and supported a large rock,
weighing approximately two pounds.
Directly beneath this was a paU of
water, and beside this was a special
mat, on which my cat slept. To the
cat's tail was attached another piece
of string. The other end of the
string was tied to a match, which
rested between two sheets of sandpaper.
"All I had to do to turn out the
light was to burn the first string
with my candle. This released the
rock, which fell Into the pail of
water, splashing some of it onto the
cat. The cat, much annoyed, jumps
away, and the match Is dragged with
it. As it lies between the sandpaper,
it is naturally lighted. Now I made
a habit of scattering gasoline around
this spot, so it generally caught fire.
And by and by the fire would ignite
the fuse of a miniature cannon. This,
being loaded with buckshot and always aimed at the light bulb, put
lt out very neatly. But the experiment was not always a success."
"No?" I murmured with just the
right amount of incredulity in my
"No. I found out later, after rigorous investigation, that lt was much
cheaper to buy an extension than a
carton of bulbs every week. It was
one of my few failures." And a tear
dropped down the face of the Cap'n.

Totem Topics
and Annual Antics
Drastic reduction In the Totem
budget this year will result in greater concentration and some Innovations in the Annual this year. But
in spite of any economic obstacles,
preliminary organization has run on
very smoothly, owing to the excellent co-operation of the photograph-
era and engravers.
Artona Studio has made arrangements to take all pictures—Individuals, groups and teams—on the campus. A camera wUl be set up on the
stage of the Auditorium, and photos
wttl probably be run off with surprising rapidity, if the photographer
receives tiie co-operation he should
from the students. If ths schedule
for photography is kept to, aU pictures wttl be taken by the and of
next week.
The general appearance ot the Totem itself will not be changed. Covers will resemble last years. The
material will cover the same ground
as last year's Totem, but will be
compressed into smaller space. Att
first teams of all sports will have a
whole page, with a halfpage picture,
and a half-page write-up with a
small inset of the athletio representative of the team. Other sports wttl
be two to a page, with a quarter of
a page for picture, and a quarter for
tho write-up.
Clubs and societies will be three
to a page, with a small inset of the
preaidtnt of each dub.
Pictures ef grads witt be ten to a
pais, instead of seven and graduating write-ups wttl be similar to last
years, glvtng the Majors of the Grad,
his extra-currioular interests at University, his home town, and his particular likes and dislikes.
The Players Club and the Musical
Society will have one page each. Tho
half-page picture in each case will
be the executives of the societies.
Insets for title sheets of different
divisions will be Indian and Totem
designs, carried out in orange and
brown on paper which resembles
blrchbark and title page of the Totem will probably be combined with
the Contents sheet.
Claremont College, California, is
offering four fellowships and four
tuition scholarships for the session
of 1933-34, an announcement from

The fellowships are for the sum of

Arts '34 Class Meet
Stu Keate handed In his resignation as president of the class of '34
at a meeting held yesterday noon.
Keate holding two "B" offices decided to remain with "The Ubyssey"
as Senior Editor.
Members of the class wiU revel
this year at the Commodore Cabaret
on February 24.
Sid Swift made an appeal to members of '34 to support inter-class
meets, and Sonny Nemetz followed
this with an announcement that the
Parliamentary Forum had offered a
book prize of the value of five dollars for class debating.
Budget Balances
The CouncU no longer offers Itself
as a target for students enraged at
the showing of a surplus. It's budget will just balance, all going well,
should certain receipts, as Jhose of
the Players' Club, faU them, they
might even sport a small and now
fashionable deficit, Meanwhile, states
Mark Collins, the Treasurer, a careful control ot expenses is being kept
and those who approach for extra
stipends are being turned away mercilessly.
For such as are curious enough to
know the actual figures, the following have been disclosed:
Recipts in fees and all extras, $11,-
217; expenditures to date, 34,686;
amount on hand, 36,531.
The expenses yet to be made have
been computed at 37,200. Therefore
recipts to balance the year's budget
must total 110.

Senior Varsity Ruggers
To Battle Victoria Reps
In McKechnie Cup Tilt
Now that Christmas and New Year's
are well behind, track and field men
are taking down their splkea for
cleaning and sharpening, preparatory
to starting an ambitious Spring program. The first meeting of «the term,
held on Wednesday, drew a large
group of splkemen, among whom appeared many now faces. Max Stewart, track club president, looks for a
big season "Judging by the unprecedented enthusiasm shown on Wednesday."
Cress Country Race Pint
The annual cross-country jaunt over
road and field Is scheduled for February 1, and, promises to be a classic.
An inter-class event, competition wttl
be keen between faculties and individuals. The first ten home will notch
up points in the order of finishing,
the winning class getting 3 points
towards the Governor's Cup.
Distance Aces In Condition
Sid Swift, winner of last year's
Arts '30, Alfie and George Allen,
George Sinclair, McArthur, Dobson,
Ward, Loat, Hammersley and Phil
Northcott, winner of the event a year
ago, have been training dUigently, and
any one of these men has a good
chance of winning. The track club
has decided to throw out the old
record of Leo Gansner for this race,
taking instead Jack ChappeUe's mark
set recently.
Other Meets Scheduled     _ .
Students are already looking forward to the historic Arts '20 road relay race, which will be run off about
February 15. The first big track meet
wttl not be staged until March 1, but
this has not dampened the enthusiasm of the specialty men, who are
training hard already. Bi-weekly
work-outs are being held In the Gym,
on Wednesdays at 4 p.m„ and Fridays at S p.m.
Max Stewart announces also the
possibiUty of a super triangle meet
between Ellensburg Normal, Washington Frosh and Varsity to be held in
Seattle on the Monday foUowing the
Puget Sound Meet. Nothing is def

Varaity  Outplayed In  Intermediate League
The attention of members of Varsity Swimming Club Is specifically
directed to an article Inserted by tbe
swimming club officers in the last
issue of Ubyssey. Please get it, read
it and govern yourself accordingly!
In view of/ the meets both, in Vancouver and Victoria in which we
are expected to participate creditably, It is essential that we adopt
Immediately a very definite and regular training schedule.
It Is a source of pleasure to note
that out of our large membership of
approximately 170, we have lost but
one member through failure in the
midyear examinations.
To enable us to field a representative allround swimming team worthy
of Varsity and of our numerically
large club it is necessary to have a
minimum number of active candidates in training as follows:
Distance Hunge—Men 3, Women
4-5; Diving—Men 3, Women 5; Breast-
stroke—Men 4, Women 5; Backstroke
—Men 4, Women 5; Overarm side-
stroke (medley relay), Men 3, Women 4; Furlong and Quarter Swimmers—Men 3, Women 4-5; Individual
medley (back-breast-freestyle) —Men
3, Women 5; 100 yards—Men 3, Women 5; Fifty and Relay—Men 6, Women 8.
1933 coaching periods, Plungers
and Divers—Crystal Pool, Monday
and Thursday, 6 p.m. Turns, starts,
freestyle and speed technique—Tuesday and Friday, 6 p.m. Chalmers
Tank, Twelfth and Hemlock—Wednesdays, 5 p.m., for Special Strokes,
i.e., Breast, Sidestroke (and Backstroke for beginners) together with
stars, turns and relay practice.
The Swimming Team of 1925-26,
26-27 and 27-28 set a high standard.
This year we have better swimming
facilities, if anything a larger membership and the same coach. With
every swimmer at Varsity a club
member and every member out to
do his or her best, it should be possible to equal that standard.
Varsity's     Intermediate     Hockey
Squad received a rather definite set
back at the hands of the strong Mac
cabees aggregation in a league fixture Tuesday night.
With many of the stars of the Commercial League giving strength and
speed to the clubbers the Blue and
Gold squad experienced considerable
difficulty throughout the game and
rarely got away to a good start,
while Macs found uttle difficulty in
circumventing the Varsity defense
and with hard driving shots, gained
by greater experience, put the disk
behind Willis no less than seven
times, meanwhile holding the stud
ents scoreless.
With the opening of a new term
Varsity's box cud not lack players,
many of whom were back for the
first time since the first term closed.
It was a record turnout.
In spite of this every forward line
that Manager Dick Briggs shoved
In, in the wild hope that some combination would be able to break the
defense pair of "Big" Bell and Gordy
MacLean was spUt wide and the opposing forward line came down to
either crash through or outskate the
Varsity defense.
Willis, who was guarding the nets
for Alma Mater, made some remarkable saves during the course of the
three periods. In view of the fact
that time after time the three-man
rush that Macs sent in reached a
point within five feet of him still
intact his performance ln holding the
opposition to seven counters becomes extremely creditable. No
goalie could stand up long under the
barrage with which the Clubbers directed against him.
Nevertheless valuable experience
was gained in the encounter. Although Macabees benefited from the
win they registered Varsity's league
standing unimpaired—third.
Varsity Third ia
Inter_^U" Shoot
With ». score of 775 out of 840, the
U.B.C. rifle team ranked third in
the annual Inter-University match,

The Islapd team has yet to be hand*

them to chalk up still another victory
in to-morrow's encounter. However
Coach Busk Yeo and the students
think differently. In the hope of upsetting the dope Buck has been ham-
mering and drilling the squad since
New Year's with the. result that the
Varsity troupe is probably the fastest
and best working aggregation that has
represented the Blue and Gold In the
past five years.
Twenty-five men have been turning

competition for positions has been
keener than ever. Varsity's trio of
travelling Ruggers, Cleveland, Ken

from the newsies.

Soccerites  To
Clash  With
Varsity To Resume Saturday
Against Abbotaford
Otie   Hunday   Absent;   Max
Legg Plays Last Game
Varsity's Senior Soccer team hopes
to resume Its winning ways on Saturday when it faces Abbotaford
Hotel at 2:30 at Cambie street
grounds. This game should produce
a fine struggle, as in the last encounter between the ,two teams, a
fine game resulted in a two-all
draw. The Hotelmen are holding
down a position in the league standing one above Varsity, and a win for
the Blue and Gold wttl help considerably.
Three of the four regulars absent
last Saturday will be back In the
game this week, but Otie Munday
wttl not be able to resume till next
week. His absence will necessitate
a rearrangement of the forward line,
and its composition will not be decided until today.     •
Max Legg, a member of Varsity
teams for tne last five years, has
accepted a position in British Guiana, and will be playing his last
game with the Blue and Gold. He
came to the Seniors this season after
starring with the s-acond squad.
Partnered with Millar McGUl, he has
been an Important cog In the Varsity
defence. He wUl be in his regular
position at left full-back in tomorrow's game.
Frattinger wiU again be between
the posts. He has played a steady
game this season, and has teamed
with McGiU and Legg to form a fine
defence. *
The half-line will have BUl Wolfe,
the recruit from the second, division
Regals Club, at right hau. Captain
Kozoolin will again occupy the centre-half berth, a position In which
he has few equals. On his left will
be Russ Stewart, a promising newcomer this year.
Aa stated, the forward line has not
yet been chosen, but the selection
rests between Rod McLeod, Hughie
Smith, Dave and Laurie Todd, Ernie
Costain and Bud Cooke.
When the old maestro — Coach
Randy Tervo, trots his Senior B basketball proteges on the U.B.C. gym
floor tonight to play Port Moody at
0 o'clock, he will present a well-
groomed aggregation that should
prove plenty tough for the opposition.
The Senior B boys have lost only
one game in V & D league; and since
Tervo took the team over have not
lost a single encounter. Although
the trip to the Interior during the
holidays did not materialize, both
the maestro and all lads are in fine
trim—yowsah, ladies and gentlemen—
According to the latest Information
the team will consist of Lucas, Webster, Prlngle, McDonald, McLeod,
Clarke, Stokvis and Sutton.
Science 34 Conquer
Science 33 by 2-0
Downing a fighting but outnumbered Science '33 team by a 2-0 score
on Thursday noon, Science '34 moved
still farther away from the rest of
the teams in their League Section.
By virtue of this win the men of
34 now have a clear three point
Play throughout the game was erratic, the ball being in '33 territory
most of the time. After a scoreless
first half Jimmy Bardsley chalked
up the first counter of the tussle
with a pretty goal from the left wing.
A few minutes later the same player
repeated the performance, combining
with "Olson" Nicholson to do the
deed. Sumner in the losers' goal
put up a great fight before the second tally crossed the line. He made
three distinct saves but fumbled thc
fourth and Bardsley steered the ball
between the posts. "Pansy" Pete
Frattinger was in great form, kicking the ball at least twice. Although
the type of football played resembled
Canadian Rugby, some flashes of soccer appeared, especially whenever
Bardsley and Nicholson combined.

This prominent forward turned ln

responsible for the Varsity victory.
Senior Girls Have Won Last
Five Games
Apparently most oi the students at
this university are absolutely unaware that in their midst there is a
girls' Senior A basketball team of
championship calibre. However, despite lack of all student support this
peppy aggregation won the last five
games and are sitting securely on top
of the Senior "B" League. Of still
greater interest is the fact that this
same team outscored by 10 points
the hitherto invincible Witches, being
the first to down their squad this
The games? (Vasn't you dere
Sharlie?) On November 24 the
U.B.C. team played the Normal
Grads and took the game with a 27-
23 score. November 30 saw the game
between U.B.C. and Adanacs which
the Blue and Gold team won by the
score of 27-26. On December 2 they
played Normal Grads. The score
was 20-22 in favour of the Coeds.
January 9 U.B.C. again walked away
with the long end of a 27-14 score
in an encounter with Adanacs.
The most spectacular game of the
five however was on January S
when the Varsity girls downed the
Invincible Witches 30-20. When it is
realized that this is the first time
this season that the Witches have
dropped a game, the Co-eds' victory
will appear all the more outstanding.
With this enviable record behind
them it la expected that the girls will
prove a big drawing card ln their
coming games.
The team: Andree Harper. Audrey

Owing to financial conditions there
will be no play on Saturday afternoons during this term.
Dick Bower to Head

last year was elected captain of the
Senior City squad.

cream of last years men, among
whom will be: Heron, Crysdale, Lynott, Symonds, SneUing, Holden, and
Akhurst. Among the new players to

Dick Farrington the Varsity grid-
men should be worthy of their
strongest opponents.

Ken Wright Stars For
Varsity; Scores 12
Students Lead 21-12
At Half Time
Hard checking, smooth combination
and a close finish featured the Var-
sity-Adanac Burrard League encounter at Queen's Park Arena
Wednesday night. After breaking
through the Royal City defence In
the first half to take a 21-12 lead
into the second stanza, Varsity weakened to aUow the Adanacs to pull
nearly level near the finish. However, tiie Westminster rally lust
fatted to turn the trick, and the
Blue and Gold triumphed 30-21.
Cy Lee, ex-Varsity forward, was
the first to score, sinking
the ball from the side after about
three minutes. Ken Wright tied it
up on a break, and from this time
on the Collegians graduauy lengthened their lead until half time. Jimmy Bardsley was the next to score,
dropping in a long shot, and following it up with a beautiful overhead effort from near the basket.
Ted McEwan, Adanac guard, secured the ball in the centre circle,
and dropped in a fine basket. Campbell made this up when he was fouled
in shooting by Shiles, and made both
shots good. The Varsity forwards
were combining well at this time and
were working the baU in weU under
the basket.
Varsity Cheeking Watt
The Blue and Gold defence was
turning in a splendid game, rarely
aUowlng the Adanacs to work In for
close shots and intercepting pass
after pass. However, with a 10-4
lead, the Varsity squad slackened up
a little and allowed Fraser and Shiles
to score, reducing the lead to 10-8.
With this impetus, the Varsity offense began to function again, and
Wright and Osborne combined for
five points without reply. The Adanacs rushed in Mayers and d'Easum
In an effort to stop the Varsity rush,
but Bardsley and Wright had added
three more points before McEwan
scored for the Royal City squad.
The Game Speeds Up
With Varsity holding a 19-10 lead,
the Adanacs attempted to force the
pace, but found the Blue and GOld
strong enough to match speed with
more speed. With Matthison replacing Bardsley, the Varsity forwards
swarmed under the Westminster
hoop, and Wright scored another
basket on his third attempt. ' Hooker"
was having tough luck with his
shots, and several rimmed the hoop,
only to faU out. Finally Mayers
broke away to drop in a nice shot
from the corner. Osborne and Shiles
missed foul shots as the half ended
with the score 21-12 for Varsity.
Adanacs Better In Second Half
The Adanacs up-held their reputation as a second half team by out-
scoring Varsity 16-0 In the second
stanza, but the CoUegians were
strong enough to eke out the victory. Led by Mayers, the Royal City
forwards ran in eight pouits against
four for Varsity. However, the Blue
and Gold defence finally found its
feet and Osborne dropped in another
basket. For the next five minutes
smooth passing and close checking
featured the play, and neither team
could break through much. Then
Coach Allen sent Nicholson in for
Ken Wright and shortly after replaced CampbeU by Dick  Wright.
Whirlwind Finish
The Adanacs continued at a breakneck pace, and Mayers broke through
to reduce the Varsity lead to two
points. Coach Allen immediately
sent Ken Wright and Campbell back
into the game for Nicholson and
Matthison, Wright lost no time in
getting back Mayer's basket when he
tallied from the foul line. McEwan
and Shiles were fouled as the Adanacs continued ito force the pace,
and both made their shots to once
more cut the lead to two points.
Campbell missed a foul at the other
end just as the final gun sounded.
Ken Wright was outstanding on the
Varsity squad, both on defence and
offense. He topped the scorers of
both teams with twelve markers. Osborne and Campbell formed a strong
defence for the Blue and Gold, their
checking being of a high order, the
whole Varsity squad combined well
and wasted few opportunities.
/arsity: Osborne (8), Campbell
(4), Nicholson (1), K. Wright (12),
Bardsley   (5),  Matthison,  D.  Wright.
