C.U.P. Correspondent
OTTAWA—The international wheat
conference in Winnipeg next week ls
considered here to be a meeting of
paramount importance.
The whea^ problem ranks with the
railways and national defence as major Issues for the next parliament,
starting January 12, and any decisions reached at the Winnipeg parley
will carry considerable weight in any
debate in the commons.
The Oanadlan farmer and urban
dweller are both vitally concerned
with the growing of wheat. Everyone
In the Dominion ls In the wheat business whether they like it or not.
While the prairie farmer harvested
a good crop this year and ls being
paid 80 cents a bushel for No. 1
Northern at Fort William, the government is losing more than 20 cents
a bushel because of the guaranteed
price and the fact that world wheat
prices are flirting with the 50-cent-a-
bushel mark.
It ls generally conceded that the
fixed price saved the west this year
but in the saving process the rest of
the Dominion paid for it through the
Dominion treasury to the tune of
about $45,000,000.
Agricultural authorities here clearly see that this situation cannot continue and some express the hope that
a solution might be found ln the establishment of a minimum International  price  for wheat.
This would provide a stable price
and render the export farmer Independent of the political uncertainties
of public support and the price fluctuations in the world market. There
is no chance the Winnipeg conference could establish such a price but
the groundwork may be laid for an
International fixed price structure in
the wheat trade.
Falling this there is an opinion ln
some Informed circles here, that the
only alternative ls a radical revision
of Canadian agricultural policy ln
the west. They feel that the wheat
question cannot continue much longer ln the critical stage ln which lt
has existed for the past eight years.
While government officials here
said they were unconcerned about
the recent sale of 20,000,000 bushels
of United States wheat to Britain,
some members are looking Into the
transaction to determine If the loss
of the slx-cent-a-bushel wheat preference had anything to do with the
matter.
It ls believed that the U.S. wheat
was sold at a much lower price than
that offered by Canadian exporters
but questions likely will be asked
early ln the session about this deal
and Agriculture Minister Oardlner
will be requested to inform the house
why Canada did not get the business.
With such grave Issues of public
Importance, parliament will scarcely
be able to prorogue before the King
and Queen arrive May 20. Adjournment will be taken and the members
will return late in June for another
stretch. The impression has been
growing that a general election will
be held next fall but the rumors are
being   discounted   ln   some   quarters.
Robert Finn, Liberal member who
has represented Halifax ln the commons for 25 years and ls close to the
cabinet, told this writer the other
day that he did not think there
would be a general election until
1940.

DISCIPLINE COMMITTEE TO
PROBE GEOLOGY LAB DAMAGE
VALUABLE   SPECIMEN   DESTROYED  BY
MEMBERS OF GEOLOGY  I  CLASS
Shortly hefore the Christmas holidays, a sample of quartz
crystals, helon^iuH to the (feology Museum, was smashed up. The
Discipline Committee is at present taking steps to prevent any
recurrence of such vandalism.
" Serenaders "
Hard At Work
On Production
Never a dull moment! That's what
is in store for Musical Society members in the aeven weeks which remain before the curtain rises on
"Serenade" ln the University Theatre
on  February 22.
Rehearsals,   practices,   more   rehearsals He ahead. Yet In spite of
the prospect of time sacrifled and
a  great deal of hard work, those
taking part ln the production seem
filled with  enthusiasm,  and  fairly
panting   with   the   desire   to   make
the show a success.
While   the  chorus  begins   the   process   of   familiarizing   itself   with   its
songs, and the orchestra makes practices more  frequent, committee  men
whisper  in  dark  corners  of  the  Barren   Room,   discussing   plans   for   the
ticket    sales    and    advertizing    campaigns.
Osborne Studios, again in charge
of building sets ,1s already striving
to solve the problem of converting
the   dark,   old   stage   Into   a -corner
of    sunny    .Spain,    und    If    present
plans    mutcrlull/e,    the    first-night
audience   will    receive    a    pleasant
surprise     from      the      stage-crew's
efforts.
Try-outs    for   principal    parts    will
take   place   this   week,   and   the   cast
announced at the  beginning of next.
FELLOWSHIPS TO BE
GIVEN NEXT SUMMER
The Beit Fellowships for Scientific
Research has given notice that the
Twenty-sixth Election of Fellows will
take place on or about July  7,  1939.
Only three Fellowships will be
awarded and applications must be
received on or before April 6, 1939.
Application forms, and all Information may be obtained, by letter
only, addressed to the Rector, Imperial College, South Kensington. London, S.W.
Any additional information may be
obtained at the Registrar's  office.
FIRST FILM SOCIETY
SHOWING LAST NIGHT
"Canadian Rockies Holiday," a
technicolor production which won
the Amateur Photoplay prize for 1938
was presented last night at the University Theatre.
ONLY VERSION.
This picture was a joint showing
of the National Film Society and the
University Film Society and is sponsored by the C.P.R. The only version
in existence, it is being shown by Its
producer, O. H. Jones, who will travel
with lt until lt is finished. Mr. Jones
ls ln town until Friday night when
he will show the film at the Vancouver Hotel, supplying his own music,
commentary,  and  sound  effects.
The program last evening, to
which the Amateur Photography
Clubs were invited, included also
two short features. These were
"Mississippi Barrage" and "Woodwinds", the latter a musical.
"YELLOW  CRUISE."
The University Film Society has
changed the night of its showings
from Monday to Friday. The first
under this new schedule will be
"Yellow Cruise", describing a trip
through Asia by a party of French
scientists. It, has been acclaimed as
one of the best travel pictures ever
made.
WORTH $60
The sample, a gift from the University of Toronto worth about $80 ,
was completely destroyed. A* It is
extremely difficult to replace specimens of this type, the Discipline
Committee feels that the situation
requires  Immediate  aotlon.
It Is reported that the Geology I
class was responsible-for the dun-
age. A number of students of this
class,   who   failed   to   get   the   required Held samples, broke up the
museum specimen, Intending to uae
It instead.
Carson McOulre, A.M.S. prealdent,
will speak to that class at 9:30 Monday morning,
FOSSILS  STOLEN
This ls not the flrst time that
specimens have been destroyed or
taken from the Oeology Museum.
Last year a collection of fossils disappeared under similar circumstances. It cost the University about
$120 to replace this collection.
Jack Davis, head of the Discipline
Committee, pointed out that there
should be, and would be, more such
collections on the campus, if such
vandalism  did  not exist.
TOTEM DEADLINE
SET FOR JAN. 15
The last iap in the race against
time for all Totem photographs has
been readied with the opening of the
Spring term, and it has been announced by the editor of the Totem
that all student photographs must
have been taken by the 15th day of
January.
It is urgently hoped that students will rally round, and show
perhaps a spaqk of enthusiasm in
getting this tedious business over
with. The first group of studenta
who are requested to hasten Is the
Senior class—seniors of each and
every faculty.
SCIENCEMEN LAO.
Third year Arts and all Commerce-
men are well behind ln their unofficial schedule, and the entire Science
faculty is so far behind the Artsmen
they are beginning to lose their renowned reputation for "esprit de
corps."
Aggie students are not doing too
badly, but many have yet to be taken.
Along with this Faculty ls the class
of Public Health Nurses and Nurses.
who apparently desire to have their
pictures in the Totem but do not
know how to get same taken. For
their sake, and for the sake of those
who may have forgotten, all that is
necessary is a telephone call to Artona Studio (Seymour 5737) thereby-
making an appointment, and following this wicked step a rapid visit to
the studio on Oranville Street!
According to the staff the book is
well under way, and faint possibilities are appearing J;hat the annual
may appear on the Campus on time.
But the entire schedule for the production of the book can be thrown
out of balance by students neglecting to have their photographs taken
NOW.
It might be noted that all members
of all Fraternities and Sororities
(Women's Fraternities) must have
their photographs taken, unless he
or she has already been taken this
Session   or  last.
The editor has pointed out to the
Ubyssey that this story is intended
as an invitation, a hope, a threat,
and a plea. The point that he reiterated was that the deadline for
all pictures, Artsmen of any years
except Frosh (who are finished).
Aggies of all years, C'ommercemen
of all years, Sciencemen of all
years, and Nurses of all years has
been  set  as  January  15th,   1939, Two

In the usual New Year's manner we look forward to the coming' year and t-j those problems which the coming year will solve.
For U.B.C. 1939 promises two new buildings! The new year may
bring the students the Union Building of which they have dreamed
for the past fifteen years. 1939 may bring relief to tlie fortunate
scientists who are trying to do post graduate research side by side
with elementary lab students. Tbe New Year may bring the first
two or three years of a medical faculty to the university.
But the promises of the coming year are only fruits of last
year's work. The possibility of two buildings i.s only the result
of many hours of effort on the part of a small group of university
men. If any progress is made during 1939 it is only the result
of the work done in 1938. Therefore we must not be too satisfied
with whatever we accomplish this year but look forward to the
time when 1940 will be the new year and will bring us only those
things for which  we  have  worked  in   1939.
UNIVERSITY TO GIVE
SYMPHONY BR'DGASTS
The University's flrst broadcast
this year will be heard January 8,
Sunday afternoon at 5. over CBR.
This Is the Initial program ln a symphonic series arranged by the Department of University Extension.
HISTORY   OF   MUSIC.
The new broadcasts will differ in
at least one respect from standard
symphonic programs. Their basis is
the chronological development of
modern music, from Bach In the 18th
century to Stravinsky and the present day. Each program will feature
representative work of separate composers who have contributed to this
development.
Sunday's    music    is    by    Johann
Sebastian    Bach,   regarded    as   the
founder   of   modern   musical   composition.   There   will    b<    selections
by full orchestra, ur*ran, piano, solo
voice and large chorus.
Subsequent  programs  are  arranged
on  ' he same pattern,  offering a variety of musical form;  large and small
orchestra,   chorus,   vocal   and   instrumental  solo.
Recordings are supplied by the
Carnegie Music Library, which provides an immense range of program
material. The series will be broadcast from the campus studio in the
Agriculture building.
TOTEM NOTICE
A meeting of the Totem staff will
be held on Tuesday, January 10th
at 12.30 in Arts 108. All members
must attend, and any others interested in working on the annual are
asked to come.
WANTED
WANTED: one Joe College for

This happy time, the opening of
the Spring term, the beginning of a
new year, and a new
CABBAGES life und all that sort
AND KINGS of thing appears to
form an excuse for
human beings falling into evil ways,
and to cause conversation to do-
generate into a meaningless Jumble
ol trite witticisms, and boasting
Jests regarding some unfortunate
man's ability or Inability to partake
of  the  holiday  fare.
We are not concerned, of course,
with anyone's ability or inability to
partake gracefully of the holiday
fare, but we are deeply Interested in
investigating reasons for the appalling change In the usually brilliant
conversational powers of our many
friends.
You must have heard Tommy exclaim at that tea, "Did you see
Ernie Thls-and-That on Christmas
Eve?" or possibly, "Oad what a
night, why am I alive?"
Now we don't believe that Tommy
was really Interested in whether any
one did see Ernie This-and-That, but
rather we hold that he was attempting to cast a slur on the unimpeachable record of the virtuous Ernie
Thls-and-That.  Now  that's bad.
Then again do we suppose that
Tommy honestly wondered why he
wus alive? No. For to begin with
said Tommy offered no thanksgiving
to the Supremo Power that rescued
him from death's Jaws under some
table, and besides he wus only leading up to supplying some gauche Inquirer with the Information thut he,
Tommy, had uctually been under a
table.
The supposition, then, ls that present day youth are fascinated by
both hearing and narrating tales of
dire dissipation during holiday functions. I trust that you will draw your
own   conclusions.  We   have   ours.
And now to turn our thoughts to
the merry New Year. What does it
hold for us? Perhaps
FORTUNE'.* it gives a new toothbrush, u trip to New
Westminster, u smaller deficit ln our
term's budget, a legacy of three thousand bus tickets, u visit to a new
boiler factory, and a holiday during
the Summer in a mine. You see,
who can tell?
Or possibly like the two-headed
God Janus we will turn the eyes of
one head to the past year and the
eyes of the other to this year, and
then we will Just sit and look, and
say things and think.
Then you must have heard about
the Foo-Foo bird that spends its
time running. But one leg is shorter
than the other. Consequently it
spends Its time running on a mountain. It has been running for two
thousand years, and will be running
for another thousand or so. It Just
goes round and round! The Now
Year would be nothing mote to It
than another round. That's what we
found.
There's another important bird
that is usually mentioned at this
time of the year. It is a perfect example of worthlessness. We refer
to the Mug-Wump. It sits on a fence
with its Mug on one side and its
Wump on the other, or else it flies,
but it can only fly backwards, in order that it may not see where it is
going but rather where lt has been.
This  bird  is bad.
It i.s amazing, too, to see what
aome people will do when they have
to. We have some very
MUDDLIN' firm friends from the
THROUGH Capital City of this
Province, and we naturally found that they returned to
the Garden of America for Christmas. But the astonishing thing Is
in the methods that some adopted
for transporting themselves to the
ship.
Two female members of this University decided to travel by the
Beastly Electric. They caught the
bus from the campus where they apparently reside. At Sasamat one
discovered her ticket had not travelled with her. She decided instantly to return in pursuit of the
truant ticket whilst the other student
decided insantly to continue on her
way  with  the  baggage  of  both.
But her heart quailed at the sight
of the luggage which she was appointed to carry. What she did
makes me tremble. She accosted
two strange men, and asked that
they carry her bags!     Which act  the
Hooking
_Badituart)B
At New Year's I find that looking
backwards ls much pleasanter than
looking forwards. When I think about
the resolutions I made so optimistically—how I was going to do much
more work, how I was going to stop
sitting around ln the Pub and how
I was going to make this column
really Interesting—I feel quite depressed. As to the column, a fellow
sufferer of 1933 expresses my feelings
with great insight in the following
poem:
A sigh, a sob, a weary snivel,
I strive to write this utter drivel,
Knowing   that   when   they   read   this
chaff
My nearest, dearest friends will laugh
Proclaiming thus to all about
That they at least can ferret out
A line or two provoking mirth.
Where others And a dreadful dearth
of humour.
And yet a dreary comfort this—
When others boo and even hiss
My efforts on a higher plane
Of  humour than  the common  vein,
And others take pains to show
Their scorn of humour rather low,
Oh be It high and pure as air,
Or broad and low as Victory Square,
They grumble.
Here ls someone else who had her
troubles. Fanny Freshette, a composite of all the freshettes of 1933 confided the following to her diary:
"I guess this will be longer this
month on account of I'm ln love at
last, my brother saying I go round
looking like a sick goldfish half the
time, a mean way of making sport of
my passion and to think that I never
used to know what true love was
about.
"Well, lt all started with Speed
taking me to Jane's party and me
being quite thrilled but no sooner
did we get there than there was that
little cat, Sally Brown, looking so
heavenly ln a blue dress that you
would never know what a nasty soul
she has and away went Speed and
there I was left on the couch trying
to appear gay, playing with the cat
and watching them out of tlie corner
of my eye, all the time, her sickly
smile at him and closing her eyes
when they danced which was enough
to  turn your stomach.

LEWIS  ROBINSON
While the spirit of examinations is
still upon us, with due respect to
Joyce Kilmer:
I think that I shall never see
A grade as lowly as a "B"—
A "B" whose earning will point rest
Where "D" and "E" and even less
Have made us look to Ood all day,
And lift our lonely arms to pray;
A  "B"  whose grades will  let  us rate
The marks we need to graduate!
"F's" are made by fools they say,
But only  Ood can make an "A".
* *      *
Exams are just like women—
This statement ls quite right,
They ask you foolish questions
And keep you up all night.
* *      *
The results seem to show that
many believed the old Chinese proverb: "He who puts off studying until tomorrow, is going to have a swell
time tonight."

ALONG
By PROXY
Well, I made It I There were a few
days towards the end of last term
when I thought
XMAS XAMS. you and the Ubyssey would have to
struggle along without benefit of
Proxy—but I managed to scrape
under the tape Just one short Jump
ahead of a rejection slip.
If anyone wants to know why I
am where I am today, I can only say
that lt took sheer courage. It takes
courage to borrow notes two or three
days before the exam, go without
sleeping and eating, and hold Morpheus at arm's length while you
struggle with a series of two-hour
examples of professorial cruelty. Yes,
1 earned all I got. I worked hard for
lt. One m.ght even say that I'm a
self-made man — almost. And Incidentally — I sent a Xmas card to the
Dean.

On New Year's Eve, of course,
nothing could have dragged me away
from my es-
NEW YEAR'S EVE. says. I never
waste time.
But I'm sorry now that I didn't go
out into the wet—lt was raining—
with the revellers. For some very interesting little anecdotes are being
told  of  the Glorious First.
The students can hardly be blamed, I suppose, for relaxing a bit after
two weeks of concentrated mental
effort. But there is quite a gap between relaxation and the name you
might give to some of the things that
were done under guise of ringing ln
the foo.
It seems that football players—and
one or two ln particular—were usually active that night. Olve even an
average backfleld man a' shot of
Coke, and he goes belselk-hammers
down partitions, wrestles with Commissionaires, and holds lengthy telephone conversations with strange
women. All ln the spirit of good clean
fun and adventure.
If Mary Ann could have staggered
Into any of a dozen of the better
downtown hotel suites between dark
and dawn, she would have had
enough material to write a lengthy
"Memoirs of a Dirt Columnist." But
unfortunately, I couldn't find her ln
time to lead her to the fiasco. Where
was she?  I wonder.
Wlat co-ed ln evening dress was
locked out on the Devonshire fire
escape in the rain, forgotten for
nearly an hour? . . . who was the gal
who took the nasty fall ln the bathtub? . . . who spent half the night
throwing mince pies up and down
the hotel corridors? . . . what nice-
looking young sophomore returned
from a vis-a-vis on the floor his tux
covered with bunny-fur, his collar
red with ltp-rouge? . . . and why
couldn't anybody get Into room 297
for over two hours, when everyone
knew that there were at least six
couples ln there, not wishing to be
disturbed?   .  .  . and so on.

Start the new year right. Raeson's Mezzanine Floor, at 644 Granville, are offering a special price for discriminating coeds at their
limited removal sale. Smart styles that complete the carefully chosen
ensemble are priced at $3.95 and $4.95 Women are the inconsistent creatures we have always heard, but we now believe otherwise.
A Katy (Kappa Theta Rho) spent two hours manouvering so that the
young lady would break the date with him, and then he spent the
whole evening muttering miserably, that he had been stood up ... .
Never before in the history of footwear sales has there been anything
to equal the value of the Mezzanine Floor removal sale. All shoes
and slippers are regularly priced at $7.5 0 per pair and are now made
possible for the after-holiday purse.
fi fi fi
Now is the time to stock up on lingerie, not to mention blouses,
and housecoats. Mrs. Paton's Lingerie Shop at 279J Granville Street,
is having its New Year Sale. The opportunity to purchase that gay
housecoat   of   satin,   or   corded   velvet   at   very   much   reduced   prices
 spring is in the air and if it isn't, it should be ...  . because
even the periodical room of the library has taken on  the status of a
lovers' lane this term for a blonde and her Phi Kap friend	
smart tailored blouses arc included in the sale and their colors are
most beautiful for spring wear .... it is impossible to give every
detail of the sale values so call in at 2793 South Granville and see
for yourself.
fi fi fi
Coats trimmed and untrimmed in a variety of shades are being
sold at cost price at the Lora Lee Dress Shop on South Granville at
2 814. Every model is a distinctive style and flattering to the youthful figure. Latest spring dress styles are featuring the newest designs
in embroidery. These may be obtained in the special afternoon and informal frocks that are featured in Lora Lee's reduced sales offer . . .
Cupid seems to be appearing in the oddest spots on the campus this
term. Oblivious to the spectators were the pretty brunette AOPi and
her cx-pepstcr friend who were ensconced in their car in the parking
area and . . . well they were oblivious to everyone else . . . black
still ranks first in smartness for the campus woollen dress and the
informal afternoon frock. As a contrast, evening wear for the sub-
debutante and the debutante will be found perfect at Lora Lee's. A
dainty gown of quilted taffeta in white with open back and dainty
tie at the back of the neck is ideal for both formal and informal wear.
A  tiny jacquette completes  the outfit.

"Look out below". As this familiar cry rings out, skiers garbed
in slalom jackets will not fear for their pocket contents which will
be safeguarded by the zipper pocket fasteners. Fairway cloth mitts
will keep the skiers hands warm, while ski caps will be fastened securely with ear muffs, and gay knitted socks will warm the feet.
Under the colorful ski scarves can be discerned the flannel plaid shirt
with zipped front. Waterproofed gaberdine downhill ski pants will
complete the outfit, while gaiters of the same material sarb the boots.
All these and more can be obtained at Fred Holmes, 2845 Granville
Street.
In this popular sport the women are not forgotten. Special fairway jigger jackets are for them, while gaily embroidered tyrolean
braces  are  a  useful  adornment.

Post-Christmas days bring sales of limitless values. Fabric gloves
in navy with white seams following the fingerlinc and many other
types with cuffs, snaps, and draw-ons in leaf tones and gay spring
tints are at the special price of fifty-nine cents. This is an unprecedented offer by Phoebe's Hosiery Shop at 713 Dunsmuir Shop ....
A president of a major campus organization spent the night at .1
friend's home. The friend had a sister and being a loving brother
said good-night to sister who was about to go to sleep. Not to be
outdone, guest also wished sister good-night. But sister had a friend,
all done up in hair-net, bobby pins, cold crcatn, already to get her
beauty sleep too. So president-guest was introduced to stranger. Came
the dawn and breakfast. But president-friend puzzled for a few minutes over the feminine guest sans hair-hardware, and on suddenly recognizing her, exclaimed, "Oh, so- you're the girl 1 met in bed last
night!" .... Scarves in velvets and silks arc at half price now at
Phoebe's and other attractive sales items may be seen at 713 Dunsmuir

Gardiner, Moore Return
As 'Birds Face Kitsies
After several weeks loy-oft' the rugger boys return to tlie
fronts to run off spare tires which huve nccumulntcd uround
respective middles during the festive senson. Of course thero is
the minor matter of defeating the Mernlomu Rugby-Football Club,
but thn the student oval-slingers refuse to be perturbed about the
alleged scoring punch of the orange and black squad.
And the rugged ruggers might well*	
have reason to feel cocky with the
return of several Injured stars and
with light treatment at the hands of
old  man  Exams.
So 2.30 tomorrow (happy old Sat.,
Jan. T) will see the return and reunion of several Thundering Birds,
who were rendered "hors de combat"
last year.
Victoria's pride and joy Vic Moore,
has successfully overcome his balloon knee aliment and will hook between Tom Robson and Jim McCam-
mon to form one of the huskiest
and toughest front lines in the
league.
Al Gardiner the "Calgary cowboy",
teams with Jerry Mason to add
weight and punch to the second row.
Al is also making his Initial appearance ln many moons owing to a
broken   shoulder.
Noel Harrison plays rover In the
rear rank while the -wing forward
spots are .covered by Ranjl Mattu,
the "shifty shadow," and Jim Harmer.
As usual much debating and bickering was ln order among the moguls
before the Inclusion of Sandy Lang
in the line-up. Said Sandy and the
versatile Bas. Robinson cause the
selection committee more headaches
t,nd controversy than the New Years
and the League of Nations combined.
As usual Ted McPhee takes his old
spot at five-eighths and will have
Waddy Robertson for running mate.
Waddy has been turning in marvelous performances on the U.B.C. team
of recent games and receives a long
deserved break. Harry Lumsden
holds down the other inside position
while wings are rangy Tod Tremblay and Strat Leggat. The Invincible Johnny Bird moves to fullback
to complete the roster in what coach
Carey hopes to bo a winning combination.
Ernie Teagie.-'he of the many positions has received a suspended sentence from the dean, but there is
still hope "Energy Ernie" will see
action later ln  the season.
Alan Oardlner, above, Is one of the
main reasons for the prevalent New
Year optimism being shown on the
rugger front. Saturday's stadium
tussle Is his first appearance since
his shoulder injury two months ago.

A snappy new schedule has been
drawn up for this term's Intramurals. Outstanding among the new
Items are the mixed teams—yes sir,
the boys and gals will play volleyball and ping-pong together for their
respective classes! The former game
will be played every Monday at noon.
Class badminton and sorority badminton will be played during January and February, while Phrateres
are scheduled to get under way every
Friday at  9:30.
For further details of the new
classes and Intra-murals, hop over
to the gym and get yourself a schedule from the Instructor's office.
Basketball Coach Bob Osborne has
issued the following declaration:
"In future, any girl who misses
a practice will be temporarily suspended from the team. We've gi»t
to get down to work now—no more
fooling."
Monday, January 9, is gala night
for the hooping gals, who have promised to fill Bob Brown's gym with
rooters. Varsity passes will be accepted at all games from now on, so
all out to cheer the co-eds on their
winning   way!
And guess what the gals are starting to do! Yes, Genevieve, it's riding. On real horses too, maybe. This
horse-killing game is supposed to be
slimming, good for the figure, and all
that  Mni-y  Ann  kind   of stuff.
But do you know what happens to
little girls who do such things?
They spread! Yes indeedy, they
do. And then, and then, and then,

the season, will run up against a
revenge-bent U.B.C. squad ut Brockton Point on Saturday in the first
game of a doubleheader programme
commencing at 2.00  p.m.
The last meeting of the two teams
produced some fierce competition
with the collegians finally bowing
out gloriously after keeping the
Rowers in check throughout three-
quarters of the game.
LINEUP BETTER
This week the campusmen will
have an Improved lineup, what with
two or three additions to the scrum,
as a result of the return of Moore
and Gardiner to the flrst string side,
Andy Jenkins, who deputized for
Vic Moore when the latter was Injured last term, will be hooking for
the Blue and Gold devils tomorrow,
while Evan Davies, Fred Billings and
Alan Wallace are further Inclusions
who are Just on the threshold of

The back division will be the same
as that which aided ln the downfall

those stumblebums, affectionately referred to as "melon-tossers," are giving the colleges of the North West
an examination to see whether the
University can afford to let them
in the new league that might be
formed.
EXCLUSIVE
This new league Idea, advanced by
the Varsity sport dept. is a slap In
the face to the Inter-City League,
who, ln t^ie opinion of the Athletic
Board charge too much to let Varsity students  ln  free.
Counting the last five exclusive
flashes from across the border, the
boys of tho Blue and Gold (where
have I heard that before) are even-
Stephen with a win and a loss to
their credit. This is more than satisfactory when we consider the weakened condition the tcam was in when
they  pulled  out.
SATAN   STRIKES AGAIN
That "old debbil," Ineligibility,
cracked down with mighty force and
plucked three of the Varsity regulars, Ted Pallas, Brud Matheson, and
Doug Gross all felt the power of the
demand enforced by the Students'
Council for brains as well as brawn
(no offense boys), and will confine
their efforts to their books. Pallas
nnd Matheson wero first-string members of last year's squad and their
experience will be missed by Maury
and tho boys.
Pallas has been worried from the
start of the season about his studies,
and has threatened dally to leave
the team. Now he has to. But the
greatest blow to student hopes for
another winning combination was
the news the Brud Matheson, Ran
Matthlson's running mate, didn't
make the grade. Student hopes sank
as low as an after-Xmas bank account, and when Doug Gross, new
arrival to the squad was also banned
from further participation, the
slaughter was complete.
PLENTY   PRESSURE
With the North West tour on now,
and a tough schedule ahead ln the
Inter-City League, where Varsity is
in   third   place,   pressure   will   be   on
SOCCERITES TO
MEET KERRIES
ON SATURDAY
MCMILLAN BACK FOR
NEW YEAR DEBUT
Their month-long -winter layoff
now a thing of the past, Varsity soccermen crash back into action again
on Saturday, travelling to Kerrisdale
Park to take on the strong Kerrle
XI ln a postponed league encounter.
Manager Dick Clarke anticipates
that practically his whole squad will
be ready to go. A bumper New
Year present was handed the manager recently when he learned that
Rod McMillan, brilliant young rookie forward, will in all probability
be In the lineup for this week's game.
McMillan, you will remember, broke
both writs ln a game in November,
but Is reported to be all ready to go
again.
Hts return may make all the difference to the collegians' attack
which has been very much of the
hit-and-miss type for the last four
games or so.
In a week or so further activity
v/iil take place on the roundball
front. The much-heralded trip to
Seattle ls not far off and the boys
are putting on an extra training
spurt ln order to give a good account of themselves ln the Sound
City.
Almost dally practices and workouts are the order of the New Year's
activity program. Jack Rush, filling
tho centre-half position ably for the
first year, is troubled with n blister,
but is expected to bo back in the
lineup for Saturday, while the rest
of tho  team  la  ln  top condition.
JUNIORS
The Junior team, product of Manager Clarke's creative genius, is also
scheduled to play at Vahsity soccer
pitch this Saturday, against the I
Navy, at 2.30 in the afternoon. Some
difficulty has been met with lately
by Manager Clarke In raising such
a team, but the following players are
asked  to  turn   out:
Logan, Hooper, Stewart, Clark,
Harrower, Hyodo, Gordon, Hunden,
Walker, McBurney, Mahood, Ferguson,   Nlcaldo  and  Minichlello.
TRACKMEN  TO  SEE  THE
WORLD;    GATHER    SOON
the remaining eight men on the
squad, and the rookies must decide
the fate of student hopes.
If Doug Livingstone can continue
his flashing game, and Doug Alexander, rookie southpaw, lives up to
expectations the boys will be In there
fighting. Otherwise, you might as
well throw your student pass away.
Puckmen See Action; Play
N.W. Cubs Tonite at Forum
Recognized as strong contenders in the Senior Amateur League despite
a disappointing start. Varsity puckmen will swing Into their first New
Year  action  tonight  at  the  Forum  against  the  strong Westminster  Cubs.
The   game  will   be  tho  aecond  on  the   doubleheader  programme  to  be
staged at the Hastings Park rink, and will start at approximately 9.00 p.m.
after the Dumont-Air Force clash.
DIER  BACK
Orme Dier, hard-fighting first-string centre-man, will be back to take
over his old spot after a two-week sojourn in the woods, and the inclusion
of the "scribbling streak" will do much to strengthen the collegians'
offensive.
Previous meetings between the two teams have seen two victories for
the heavy Cub sextette, the last one a narrow 3-2 decision. Tonight the
campus aggregation seems to have a fine opportunity of turning the tables
on the Royal City team which has been having difficulty recently In
raising a team.
STRONG LINE
Flanking Dier on the firs* firing line will be the fighting Guiget duo,
Marcel and Charles, while McArthur, Lambert and Austin Filth will
make up a second string that doesn't know when to stop trying. Defense
positions will be handled by Provenzano, Moxon, and Jim Harmer with
the  latter possibly moving up  to pivot the  first string for part  of the  tilt.
Jim  Ussher, speedy left-winger, will  possibly see  action  as  utility  man
if he arrives in time for the game.
BOO WHO?
A few more regular practice sessions and the Blue and Gold sextette
will be able to say"BOO" to all comers, according to Manager Morris
Belkin and a poll  conducted among members of the squad.
Admission to the rink tonight is absolutely free and a silver collection
will be taken to defray expenses. Remember game time ls 9.00 p.m. and
the   place   Is   the  Forum.
There's a new deal ahead for the
campus trackmen this year of 1939,
a new deal with plenty of chances
for the boys to strut their stuff in
an intercollegiate-studded schedule
that starts on March 18, and concludes   April   7.
First move that Van Vliet will
will take to round the team Into
shape will be an uiganlzatlon meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, January
17. Official track practices will start
under Maury's coaching eye on Jan.
23, when the welcome sign will be
waving in the breeze for all who
cherish talent In the track racket.
