Newspaper A C§rse Of
Age: Debaters Verdict
BUTTERFIELD AND BOUCHETTE, STAR ATTRACTIONS, UNABLE TO
DEBATE
The resolution, "the newspaper is
a curse of the age", was carried by
a majority vote two to one, at a debate held in Arts 100 on Tuesday.
Although both Mr. J. Butterfield
and Mr. R. Bouchette were slated to
appear, neither of them showed up
at the zero hour. Apparently both
of the two columnists were laid up
in bed wtih severe colds. Their places,^
were filled by Prof. J. F. Day, affirmative, with Vic Dryer taking the
negative.
"The newspapers of today do not
present an unbiased viewpoint either
politically, economically, socially, or
morally," stated Mr. Day, "because
they obtain no financial support unless they make these deliberate misrepresentations. An instance of this
was given when he described the
quashing of Ramsay MacDonald's
speeches in 1914 when he spoke
against the War.
As a further argument Prof. Day
advanced the case of the "scare headline." He quoted one which appeared
on the occasion of the Spanish-American War when all the papers in
the United States ran the following
headline, "Remember the Mayne."
This he said fanned prejudices when
they could well have been allowed to
die out. The time when this was
used to greatest advantage was when
it was essential that enlistments te
kept up.
"Consider the comic question," Mr.
Day continued. At first one picture
appeared at a time, then in strips,
and now it is seemingly necessary to
run eight pages of this trash in the
papers on this continent. I maintain
that this is detrimental to the minds
of children and is likely to present
low ideals and pictures of crime
which  are entirely  unnecessary."
Vic Dryer in replying stated that
the newspaper acted as a mirror of
public opinion. For example, the
English people are staid and their
papers are staid, the Americans are
corrupt and erratic and their press
is corrupt and erratic, Canada enjoys a position which is midway between the two,

PopularProgram
Excitement reigned in the auditorium at the Pep Rally Thursday noon,
as the audience rehearsed U.B.C. and
Alberta yells in prepartion for the
Intercollegiate series, between snappy
numbers by Gil Mullen and his Blue
Moon Orchestra. The program opened
appropriately with "You've Got to
be a Football Hero," played by Gil
Mullen and his boys. Following this,
Dr. Shrum mounted the platform to
speaK of the necessity of supporting
our team at the games, and urged
the students to turn put and yell for
Varsity as enthusiastically at both
games as at the Pep Meeting. After
some peppy yells by the audience, the
orchestra gave an appropriate rendition of "Who's Afraid of the Green
and Gold"? and Earl Vance, former
president of the Alma Mater Society,
urged the students to attend the
games.
The U.B.C. ream then entered glor*
iously in a highly-decorated automobile, to the strains of "Who's Afraid
of the Green and Gold"? and the accompaniment of hearty yells. Captain Dick Farrington introduced the
team, who were greeted by loud applause.
Gordon Hilker then made announcements regarding the Homecoming
program and the W.U.S. tea-dance
after the game on Saturday.
Next the orchestra gave a snappy
number, "My, Oh, My," followed by
"Wabash Blues. After a skyrocket
for Alberta and an attempt at the
Alberta yell, the prairie team were
introduced by their captain, Freddy

IN ENTERTAINMENT
Tonight is theatre night. At 8:15
o'clock the student body and the
graduates attending the Homecoming
festivities are to witness an unequalled manifestation of the artistic ability to be found on the
campus. For the past few weeks
the auditorium has been ringing with
a never ending succession of dramatic oration in preparation for the
great event.
A series of short skits is to be presented interspersed with vocal and
instrumental    music.    The    program
Who's Afraid Of
Green And Gold?
The door slams. Bill Tremalne enters: "Hi, Boys," Chorus of male
voices ecstatically: "Hi'ye, Bill, old
kid, Hi'ye." Bill. "Say, boys, shall
we talk about women right away, or
shall we lead up to it." Deafening
chorus of male voices: "NOW—'My
girl's a Hullabaloo,' etc."
This typical Pep Club entertainment was interjected between the
orchestrations of Harold King and his
versatile Optimists, Radio Rally,
CKMO, Tuesday night. Among the
numbers that they rendered: "Hail,
U.B.C," Gordie Hilker's chorus of
male voices singing the chorus; waltz
medley, "Aloaha,"' "Song of the Islands"; "Tiger Rag"; violin solo by
Sonny Richardson, "Trees"; "Wabash
Blues." ^
"Say, boys, are we afraid of the
Green and Gold?"—Archie Dick. Ye
worshipful pep fathers: "Gosh, no—
Whose afraid of the Green and Gold,
Tra, la, la—la, etc.? (to tune of
"Whose Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.)
The Pep Club rendered such yells
as: "Kitsilano," "Locomotive" (new
U.B.C. yell), "Skyrocket" (benefit
Alberta).
"In staging an intercollegiate game
such as this, it <s necessary to raise
large sums of money to defray expenses. To help sell the tickets, we
must avail ourselves of all possible
publicity. In this connwtioi I v/isl

tory test in gaming Wednesday night,
the approval of the critical Frosh.
The performance was in all respects
informal; it was in reality a dress
rehearsal. The Players' Club, Musical Society, Alumni Players' Club,
Sciencemen, Education Department,
Nuses, and Faculty of Arts all contributed to the program and the audience was unable to decide which
group provided the best entertainment. The same program is to be
presented tonight.
Anyone who can answer the following questions need not attend:
What will happen when the world
comes to an end? What do the student teachers do during their gym
periods? What do the Engineers do
at one in the morning? How do the
nurses spend their spare time, if any?
What happened to one Sedgwick (ic
relation to the good doctor it is
hoped) in the C.N.R. hotel? What
prominent ex-Junior Membei asserted that he is not "the kind of man
that fathers like? All this information will be revealed tonight.
Tickets will be on sale today noon,
at the auditorium box office and at
the door this evening,
emblematic of Western Canada
Championship.
Doc. Burke, Varsity's famous coach,
gave a humorous air to his "speech"
before talking about football. "I always thought the members of an orchestra wore Tuxedo suits, acted
'just so' and were very formal. But,
here, I find one man has his lap full
of instruments of all types; another
is wearing a sweater; while Harold
King either has an old Ford horn or
Stu Keate's hat on the end of his
cornet. They all seem to be having
a good time; they're always laughing
at something. About the prospects
for the big game: Lisle Jestley, graduate of my rugby team, is an assistant coach at Alberta this year. As if
that wasn't bad enough he had the
nerve to write and ask me to loan
him my only two books on Rugby-
one of them by Rockne—so he could
teach his team all the plays!"
Among the other gems of entertainment were: repetition of famous
scene of Cal Winter trying to sell
Frank Anders a portable bathtub and

THE NEW MILLENIUM
It is fifteen years since a war-torn world
woke up and found that peace had been declared. The war to end war had come to an
end, and the orphans, widows and cripples
went out into the streets to cheer. The profiteers looked at their inflated bank books and
smacked their lips. The hopeful and the
visionary drew pictures of the new millenium
that was coming.
The new millenium has come. Armament
manufacturers are speeding up production.
Selfish politicians are prating on security and
adequate defence. The ex-profiteers are look-
ng at their deflated bank books and preparing
for new worlds to conquer. Greed and suspicion reign in every line of international activity.
Fortunately there are a few bright aspects
in the gloomy world situation. The forces of
peace are now organized as never before to
combat the menace of war. A strea mof antiwar propaganda is now deluging the press and
the book store. A few books like Lawrence
Stalling's 'First World War' and Beverley
Nichol's 'Cry Havoc' should convert even the
most ardent flag-wavers of the fatuity of
armed conflict.
A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR
The University is very fortunate in having
a guest of such prominence as Professor A.
E. Zimmern on the campus. He is making a
special effort so as to be able to address the
student body on Monday noon. All those students who hear his lecture will be well rewarded.
Professor Zimmern is a man of international reputation in the field of world affairs.
He is closely associated with affairs at Geneva
and holds the chair of international affairs at
Oxford University. He is lecturing in Canada
under the auspices of the National Council of
Educatoa.
It isexpected that Professor Zimmern will
receive the reception from the student body
due to a man of his prominence.
He is also addressing the general public in
the Auditorium Monday evening on 'The British Commonwealth Foreign Policy.'
KLA-HOW-YA ALBERTA
We are glad to be able to have the opportunity to extend a hearty welcome to the far-
famed Golden Bears. The present intercollegiate series has aroused an unparallelled revival in interest in football both on and off the
campus.
We are glad to show the men of Alberta
that the lapse of two years in Hardy Cup
competition has in no degree lessened the enthusiasm for the game in Brtish Columbia. We
want to thank the Alberta team because we
feel that the newly awakened Varsity spirit
is due to a great extent to the personal presence
of the visiting team.
Whatever the outcome of the series, with
the coming of the prairie team there should
begin a new era in Varsity football. U.B.C.
repeats with gusto, Kla-how-ya Alberta!
AN APPRECIATION
The Ubyssey wishes to voice its appreciation
of the work of Jack Paul, a student at this
University, in providing us with the three new
cartoons which will henceforth decorate the
Tuesday issue.
Fanny Freshette declares that she is de-
'"OT *\2R0 C3B <3DE0
Alas, Poor Yorlck
Arthur Walrus and I can't help wondering
where all you 1457 charming people have been
spending your evenings this fall. Probably
each of you goes out on an average of one
evening a week, and that's a conservative estimate for these liberal days; that makes 1457
evenings a week that have to be spent somewhere. And where do you go? Eight cases out
of ten, we're willing to bet, you went to the
movies. And you with a perfectly good legitimate theatre in the city!
' It's blasphemy to mention the theatre and
the moving pictures in the same paragraph but
it has to be done. A few years ago George
Jean Nathan made the front pages of the most
conservative journals with a sweeping denunciation of the cinema on the grounds that it
was a lot of gravy without any meat. And
back came an answer to this effect:    v
"When theatres are not available one finds
one can gnaw at a corpuscle with the same
growlings one uses for the theatrical leg of
beef." The only fault to find with the statement is that the same corpuscle appears in
some sixty pictures a year, and it's getting
rather limp, like an over-used clam.
But you, and most Vancouver people, didn't
have to gnaw at the corpuscle when nightly
a metaphorical porterhouse steak was served
up at the Empress Theatre. And you chose
to attend the myopic maunderings of people
with so little dramatic ability that it's embarrassing to mention it.
We should think you'd feel pretty silly after
standing on the bridge with that big bone in
your mouth, looking at the bone in the water,
and then findng that the one you jumped in
after wasn't real at all.

Arthur and I, in one of our snooping-for-
satisfaction expeditions, have unearthed a
grave injustice which is being dealt out to a
student on this campus. It is tbe unknown,
or at least the unsung, author of the words to
"Hail U.B.C." "A violet by a mossy stone,
half hidden from the eye," he'd like to remain.
But after our ardent persuasion he gives us
reluctant consent to tell you his name.
It's Mr. Earnest Costain, and he wrote the
words in forty minutes under stress of a one
o'clock lecture, at which he arrived on time.
And for those of you who can't read fast
enough to get past "the mountains and the sea"
at .Pep meetings, here are the words:
"Hail U.B.C, our glorious university,
You'll stand for aye, between the mountains
and the sea.
All thru life's way we'll sing Klahowya, Varsity,
'Tuum est' wins the day, and we'll push on to
victory."
lighted with her likeness, while Peter the Ape
has voiced his approval of the new 'Apes and
Ivory' head by vigorously heaving a cocoanut
at his friend the elephant.
Our campus explorer likewise voices her
appreciation of her new portrait. She just
hints, however, that the knees are not really
as bony as they appear. In this respect the artist has been allowed a certain amount of poetic
license.
TO THE LADIES
Football fans aren't the only ones ! Co-eds
are counting time before the tea dance Saturday. Every co-ed has been asked to sell a
ticket and buy one, but judging from the very
persuasive 24-houu sales talks we've been privileged to hear, some of them are going one
better. It seems that this is a very super-
super tea dance where unattached men and
women will be floating around in thousands,
and any co-ed will tell you that if you don't
know everyone at Varsity you can't afford to
miss it.
We are told that during the recent political
festivities, dear Doc. G. G. S. displayed unusual ability in squashing hecklers. His formula was merely to treat them as benighted
sophomores. One reflects that whether or not
college life benefits students, it undoubtedly
does professors.
ART CLUB
The Art Club held a meeting on
Wednesday night, in the Library.
The speaker for the evening was Mr.
John Ridington. He gave the members some of his views on the main
trends in Modern Art, making special mention of Canadian Artists. The
talk was followed by very well-
chosen and representative lantern-
slides, and proved most instructive
ancl entertaining.
PHILOSOPHY CLUB
The Philosophy' Club will meet at
the home of Miss Mildred Orr, 4689
McKenzie St., Tuesday evening, November 14, at 8 p.m. Dr. D. Blackaller
will read a paper on sleep. All members are requested to be present.
LETTERS CLUB
The next meeting of the Letters
Club will be held at 8 o'clock, Tuesday, November 14, at the home of
Miss M. L. Bollert, 1185 West 10th
Avenue, instead of at Mrs. S. J.
Schofield's as was announced before.
Applications to fill a vacancy in

Engineers Are
Assured Jobs
Says McLaren
Speaker Accounts In
Detail Shipbuilding
Experiences
"Would-be engineers need have no
fear of being unable to obtain employment upon graduation because
today's opportunities and developments are greater than ever. Engineers, when these troubled times pass,
will be much more widely employed
than formerly." These were the encouraging statements made by Or. W.
O. McLaren to the Engineers Club
Wednesday last, speaking on his experiences, notably as shipbuilder.
"At the beginning of the 19th century, steam turbine engines were
used for the first time in ships," he
said. "There were naturally many
defects-to begin with. The two-turbine destroyers which the British Admiralty built wero lost at sea because
of theso flaws.
In 1905-6 the turbine was used more
universally. Tho 'Queen Alexandra'
was the second turbine ship to be
built and is now in the service of the
C.P.R. under the name of the 'Princess Pat.' These turbines though not
very successful, continued to be used
for a number of years because ship
builders did not want to go back to
the more detrimental method of
"gearing." Two of the last ships to
be equipped with steam turbines wer.
the Empress of Russia and the Empress of Asia.
"The turbines vcre finally replaced
by an hydraulic device," he went on,
"which was invented by a German
because turbines were becoming too
large to be practical. In this type of
engine double reduction gears were
used but it was soon found that this
machinery was useless since the gears
became stripped and the engine
recked. The engineers then returned
to the single reduction gears, where
th t.eth came into and out of engagement in 111000th of a second. This
was a wonderful development but
was impractical because the speed
couldn't be increased proportionally
to the weight."
Nowadays in order to obtain high
efficiency the Diesel Is used, as on
the "Normandy," of 200,000 h.p., soon
to enter tha water. The huge size
of ships like this is necessary to drive
them at high speed over the Atlantic.

Economics Club Aim
Study of the social problems in tho

Economics Discussion Club, was the
announcement made at a meeting on
Wednesday. Interesting current books
and pamphlets on these subjects will
be considered at the meetings, and
everything from Russia to the N.R.A.
will be discussed.
Alastair Munro, who was elected
chairman, stressed the point that the
activity of the club would be purely
intellectual and not social; and also
that there would be no restrictions
regarding the topics studied,
For the first month, the club will
assemble at the University every
Monday at noon, while the later
meetings will be ^ held in private
homes.
The various suggestions of the
members will ue combined at the
next meeting and from these ideas
the constitution of the club will be
drawn. The chairman stated that he
was sure there must be a number of
students at the University who would
be interested in discussions of this
sort.

Cosmopolitan Club
Holds Initial Meet
"The Cosmopolitan Club of New
iYork was remarkable for its good
I fellowship," Dr. Topping told the local Cosmopolitans when it met for
its first meeting at his home Wednesday evening.
Dr. Topping, honorary president of
the club, was for two years a member of hte New York organization.
During that time there were forty
different national groups represented
and Canadians tormed the largest
unit of foreigners.
The three outstanding activities
were the Sunday night suppers, national night, and the candle-lighting
ceremony.
"The Sunday night suppers," said
Dr. Topping," were noted for their
poor food and plenty of good fellowship." No one could sit beside a fellow national and therefor the conversation was easy. A fine of twenty-five cents was imposed on all
breaking this rule.
Each national group supplied the
program for one nation—all night.
This usualy took the form of national music, plays, and dances done
in native dress. "The very splendid
applause tho other nations gave the
Irish shows we could get a real appreciation of other national groups.
if we only learned to know them,"
declared  Dr. Topping.
Probably the most interesting event
was the very impressive but simple
candle-lighting ceremony. Each national group dedicated one member
to represent it, and this person
dressed in native costume, lit his
candle at the large light of civilization ancl fellowship. This annual ceremony is always very brief and impressive.

Manhattan Bank Trust Building was

"Ireland has precious little to gain
and a good deal to lose by marooning
itself on a Robinson Crusoe Republic"
—declared Mr. W. M. Keenlyside
when he read a paper on the topic:
"Why an Irish Republic?" before a
meeting of the Historical Society held
on Monday evening, Nov. 6, at the
home of Miss L. M. Bollert.
The speaker traced Anglo-Irish relations from th-ir origin to the present time, showing that the rtory of
Ireland, down to the last century,
featured the "attempt of the English
to hojd in subjection a people alien
to themselves in race, religion, and
in their whole outlook on life."
The cause of Irish unrest throughout the major part of the World War
was attributed to the foundation of
the Sinn Fein organization in 1906,
by Arthur Griffith . This movement
"had emerged as the practical and
political application of the great Gaelic revival, cultural and co-operative,
which was sweeping over Ireland by
the close of the nineteenth century."
The speaker noted several rasons
for the rapid growth of an extremely
antagonistic attitude in Ireland which
culminated in the Anglo-Irish War
of 1919-21. "marked by the triumph
of the forces of disorder, terror ind
assassination "
Subsequent conferences between
Mr, Lloyd Georg, and the Irish leaders
resulted in the formation of the Irish
Free State in December, 1921. The
Free State was to have the same constitutional status in the Empire as
the Dominion of Canada.
Under William Cosgravc, the economic policy of the government
"was essentially constructive and
productive, based on realities and not
on theories," Unfortunately, as Mr.
Keenlyside pointed out, the government had been so occupied in bringing order out of chaos that it "almost
completely neglected politics" with
the result that Mr. de Valera rapidly
rose to power.
The success of the Fianna Fail
party in the 1932 elections foreshadowed the abolitiou of the oath of allegiance, because of de Valera's contention that "the elimination of the
oath was a measure required for the
peace, order, and good government of
the state." This was followed by the
repudiation of the land annuities as
well as other acts—all tending towards complete separation of Ireland
from the Empire.
Mr. Keenlysid. claimed that the
loss of all Ireland's economic advantages from association in the Commonwealth would be a direct result
ot such a separation.

press," he said, "does not exercise
any moral restraint what ever. There
are many cases when newspapers are
sued for libel, but no matter what
sum of money is received as compensation the damage has been done
and cannot be rectified." He continued to say that the publishing of
crime details and the movements of
the police greatly hindered the apprehension of criminals.

"I am convinced, that in the future, the value of forest industries
will not be found so much in producing lumber as in the derived products
of which wood will form the basis."
This statement formed the keynote
of the address £iven before a joint
meeting of the Mens' Commerce and
Forest Clubs by P. Z. Caverhill, Chief
Forester, Provincial Department of
Lands, on Wednesday noon in App,
Sc. 204.
In speaking of the tremendous developments in this connection Mr,
Caverhill cited -s instances thc manufacture of rayo.i, cellophane, artifi.
cal leather, smokeless powders and
ol marble substitutes produced by
impregnating wood shavings with
calcite and magnesite. The success
encountered in the treating of wood
with chemicals to render it fireproof
enables it, in the opinion of the
speaker, to assume in some cases the
importance of steel in certain structural work. For example he cited tlie
construction of radio towers at Stuttgart, Germany, which are 330 feet in
height and built almost entirely of
wood.
"On. thousand feet of timber will
yield as lumber approximately $20,
as pulpwood $40 and as artificial silk
products as high as $2000, consequently you may understand from this the
great possibilities for research in these
fields in British Columbia," said Mr.
Caverhill. Further he pointed out
that the immense revenue derived by
a country from such an industry was
a direct divident to the taxpayer and
that it was his duty to see that the
vast stands of B. C. timber were not
wantonly depleted. In this regard
he said, "the danger of exhaustion
of the timber supplies of the country
lies in the complacency of the people who condone the cutting of large
areas without reforestation."
Mr. Caverhill traced the history of
the Industry In British Columbia
from the time of Captain Cook's arrival in 1788, to the establishment in
1861 of the first mill at Port Alberni
for export trade to Sardinia, Spain,
and the United Kingdom. He summarized tho development of logging
methods, from primitive hand logging
to the modern methods involving the
use of multiple drum high lead engines Tho speaker pointed out that
the first nutting by saw was done in
the 70's and it was not until the 80's
that the donkey engine was introduced.
ln closing Mr. Caverhill expressed
the hope that the youth of the country would realize their opportunities
and devote their energies to the development of the Immense natural
resources in B. C.
changing the whole meaning of the
speech.
In closhng the debate Pres. Ernest
Brown drew attention to the forthcoming debate with Stanford University which is to be held in the Oak

HUTTON - - HUSKY ALBERT AN
Adanacs And Varsity Squads
Will Tangle Again Saturday
Game To Be Third One With
Adanacs
Student Support Necessary
The Adanacs will again visit the
University stronghold to assert their
claim of superiority when the two
league leaders meet in the Varsity
gym on Saturday night.
Crucial Game
This game is one of the most crucial games of the season, as a win for
the students will give them a good
chance of winning, or at least tying
for first place in the league. Both the
Adanacs and the Varsity teams have
won one game from the other. They
folay only one more game together
after Saturday night and if the Blue
and Gold squad wins the least they
can do is tie the Adanacs in games.
The other teams in the league are
considerably weaker than these two
and should be disposed of comparatively easily.
Lots of Practice
Because of the importance of this
clash, both teams have been practicing
hard. Varsity has been out almost
every morning working out a deceptive attack and strengthening a powerful defence. The boys are in good
condition and Bob Osborne seems
confident that the game is as good as
won.
The Adanacs have also been working hard under the able guidance of
Tanny Butler and they are just as
confident of victory. The game is
going to be a battle of giants and
should bo fast and thrilling from
start to finish.
DO YOUR PART
Owing to the fact that the
intercollegiate series with Alberta is being held this Saturday afternoon, English Rugby
and Grass Hockey games have
been postponed.
In both cases this is a great
sacrifice on the part of the players concerned. The English rugby teams will be forced to play
games one the Saturday after
lectures for the term end. This
will work a great hardship on
men in all years. Third and
fourth year students who in
most cases do not write exams
will be forced to stay at the
University longer. First and second year students who write
exams will have to give up time
which could be spent on studies
for the game.
Considering the sacrifice that
these players are making for
the University other students
might follow their example and
do their part by attending the
intercollegiate series game.

Lose Another Game
Varsity's Interscholastic Canadian
Rugby team with its ranks sadly depleted, fell before the Magee High
School squad Wednesday afternoon
by a score of 5-0.
Magee's five points were not won
until the fourth quarter, when a Varsity man failed t< retrieve the ball
after the opponents had kicked it
over the deadline, thus allowing the
highschoolers to make five points instead of the one which they deserved.
Varsity had only one substitute, the
line-up being as follows: McKinley,
Kenney, Wilkinson, Housser, Cox,
Crosby, Wallace, Crysdale, Mclntyre,
Begg, Vrooman, Barber, and Thompson.

Will the University of British Columbia have justified the pride of the

on every tongue on the campus.
Saturday's game will determine these
things. U. B, C. has crashed the downtown papers in the world of sports.
The Golden Bears may occupy the
position in the limelight that they hold
now if Saturday's final whistle should
proclaim defeat for the Blue and Gild
twelve.
The Green and Gold
Thursday the Green and Gilders
filed out on the stage. A roar of appreciation broke from the crowded
audience that was the student body
oi! U. B. C. Age and experience were
the first characteristics to make themselves evident in that lineup. Every
man had a determined glint in his
eyes. They made a trip to thc coast
for one purpose. U. B. C. met them,
also with a purpose.
They didn't say much. But there
was a lot in their manner that substituted for the words they didn't
say.
Curtains for the first intercollegiate
series in two years will fall at the
conclusion of Saturday's encounter
with the Golden Bears of Alberta.
Whether or not they will include in
their luggage the Hardy trophy is to
be decided on that momentous afternoon.
Doc Burke will have had his doubts
confirmed or dispelled as to whether
or not his ambition can be once more
achieved—that of turning out under
the most difficult conditions in the
coaching world, a championship aggregation.

Suggestions Now In Order
Students of U. B. C, are youj aware
that our ^institution is lacking in an
important phase of college life? So
important is this deficiency that one
wonders how it is that it has gone
unnoticed. While other universities
possess admirable mascots, nicknames,
or what have you, for their athletic
teams, we have none. Why should  iot

a  roaring,  fighting  .tearing  struggle
between these two western colle&s.
The Odds Are Clear
Doc Burke has a line-up that out
weighs the Albertans over ten pounds
per man. Alberta has an aggregation
that is older and much more experienced on the average than U. B. C.'s.
Just how these two considerations
balance each other were shown in
Thursday night's battle. Just how th.y
will figure in Saturday's game under
conditions that are much more down
Alberta's alley is yet to be seen.
The Golden Bears had not played
under lights before, The air was misty,
the ball white, the sky black over
their heads. A strange rooting section sat in the stands, screaming
hoarsely for an alien Alma Mater.
A great metropolis was represented in
that grandstand.
Where the Cup?
Tomorrow they will be used to Vancouver. It is the fervent hope of the
intercollegiate rugby fans in this university that they do not benefit too
greatly by that increased familiarity.
Hager Injured
During yesterday's English rugby
practice Norm Hager sustained a broken collar bone. The Ex-King George
boy has been showing great form both
in practices and games and the occurence of this accident is most unfortunate.
As he was running with the ball he
was tackled and hit the ground with
considerable force. The ground which
is rather hard in parts did tlie damage. The English Ruggers hope for his
speedy recovery and look forward
to no more casualities in the future.

How About "B. C. Beetles?''
This would be of utmost importance
to perspiring sports writers of this
paper. Rival sports writers are able
to tell how the "U. of Oshkosh Octi-
pi squeezed out a tight victory from
the Billingsgate Beavers" or how the
"Tiddletum Tigers tore to pieces the
Siddlesump Silkworms." Alas, our
faithful scribes are unable to express
themselves in such zoological fantasies. Of course, this idea has its
disadvantages. For Instance, how the
loyal Lumpunian must blush when he
reads that the "Lumpunia Roaring
Lion was yesterday shredded by the
Pinkerton Peewit."
Look, A prize!
Students of U. B. C. it is plain to
us that we must have something of
this sort that roars, screams, growls,
or at least shrieks. A complete set of
season tickets (used) will he given
to the student who suggests to us
the best name for our mighty men of
muscle.
"OH YEAH?"
What ho! ye beardless boys.
Though the official fuzz growing
contest was an ignominous failure the black bearded giants of
the basketball team have made
a spotting proposition.
They have unanimously a-
greed to neither shave, saw,
nor clip their faces until they
have defeated their traditional
rivals, the Adanacs.
Should they lose Saturday the
basketball boys will be eligible
for any House of David team,
within the eleven days before
their next, and final contest
with the Westminster outfit.
Ah me! what if they should
lose both games.

Game To Be Held At Cambie
Kozoolin Confident Of Victory
"There will be no hilarious celebration in Chinatown to-morrow
night," prophesied Paul Kozoolin,
Varsity captain, when questioned
about Saturday's soccer game.
"Our boys have not forgotten the
3-1 setback we received from the Chinese Students earlier on in the season, when with only ten men we held
them even till half-time. Nor has
the memory of the last minute 4-3
defeat in the Mainland Cup final last
Spring withered away in our minds.
You may be sure we will be out to
redeem ourselves tomorrow."
The game, the feature of the V.
and D. week-end card, is scheduled
for 2:30 p.m. on Cambie street
grounds, and Secretary Whitworth of
the League is expecting many thousands to be on hand to add to the
coffers of the worthy Injured Players'
Fund.
Varsity will be at full strength, all
the players having quite recovered
from their last game. After a profitable practice on Wednesday the selection committee chose the following
line-up: goal, Stan Greenwood; full
backs, Millar McGill and Jock
Waugh; half backs, Russ Stewart, Bill
Wolfe, and Tim Louie; forwards, Ernie Costain, Paul Kozoolin, Jack Martin, Archie McDougal, and Dave
Todd; reserve, Hughie Smith. However, there is a possibility that Costain may be moved back to the half
line, in which case Smith will occupy
the right-wing position.
Manager Arnold White reminds the
players of the early start of the game
and urges them all to be on the field
by 2 o'clock.
