Students Express
Views on Rumored
Many Leading Professors Would Soon Be
Attracted To Other Centres Which Offer
Belter Opportunities for Research
■    Must the University close down?
Are we going to get our degrees?
These and other similar questions are rife on die campus,
as a result of the rumors that a fifty per cent, cut in the University appropriation is to be made.
After last year's experience, students are not anxious to
express opinions for publication which would antagonize' the
Government. It is felt that economy is necessary, but "Can the
Government afford to cripple the University when it is one of
the means of increasing the earning power of the people and
thus increasing the Government's revenue?" is the way one
class-president put it.
"1  think  the cut  is incompatible*	
with the best interests of the University," asserted Arnie PoweU, President of the Oolf Club. He want on
to show that the University had
gained its most valuable asset—repu-
tation-lta profeasaio tie. men weU-
known nationally, some world famous.
If the proposed cut goes through, he
thinks that these famous men wiU receive better offers from other Unl'
varsities, and U.B.C. wUl be left with
a weaker staff and no way of attracting good man. "Aftor all you must
expect a good man to go whore opportunities for research and so forth
art best," he continued.
"The University is only getting ten
percent of tiie Department of Education's expenditure as it Is and
that is a small enough proportion
one of the Province's greatest
he concluded.
"ken Beckett, '"The campus businessman,"—"I personally don't think the
government will make such a drastic
cut—it would entail one of two things:
either abolishing the two upper years,
or eliminating some of the faculties.
That would put the University back
where it was in 1910."
"What's a mere $215,000 to a Government that spent nearly two milUon
on unemployment works?" queries a
student who prefers to remain anonymous. "What are the other Provinces
going to do to their Universities
and Colleges when B* C. sets such
an example?"
Musical Society
Sponsors Music
Of Better Class
The Musical Society, continuing
its program of noon-hour recitals,
will stage the first one of this term
on Thursday of this week in the
Auditorium, at 12:10 sharp. The
policy adopted by the society of
sponsoring music of the better class
only, will be continued. The program will contain several selections
by the madrigal group of the Society, which has been practising for
some time under the direction of
Dr. W. L. MecDonald, honorary
president of the Society, who has
had ample experience in music of
this type. "The Silver Swan" by
Orlando Gibbons, "Thus Salth My
Chloris Bright" by John Wilbye, and
"In the Merry Month of May" by
Henry Youll, have been selected for
(Please turn to Page Three)
A letter indicating that a cut is
to be expected in the University
appropriation for 1932-33 has been
received by President Klinck from
the  Department of  Education.
As a result of this letter the president called a special meeting of the
Board of Governors which took place
on January 6. At this meeting a
committee was appointed to consider
the question of a reduced grant and
to work out a budget which would
come within the proposed figure.
The committee consists of Messrs.
B. C. Nicholas, F. J. Burd, C, Spencer, R. L. Reid and Dr. Klinck.
The magnitude of the cut which
was proposed in the letter to the
President has not been made public
but unofficial reports place it at a
substantial sum. Until such time as
the committee makes its report It
is unlikely that there will be any
further official  information.

Grads to Compose
Own Epitaphs For
This Year's Totem
Many changes have been made ln
the editing of the 1932 Totem. The
Book Exchange has been converted
into an office for the Totem staff, and
work has been going on for some time.
The editor, Rosemary Winslow, will
be assisted by Marian Sangster, Leona
Nelson, Dorothy Thompson and Laurel
The most important change is in
the wording of write-ups. Each graduating student must turn in his own
write-up, consisting merely of a list
of the activities in which he has taken
part. The reduced size of each write-
up will permit of seven pictures per
page, instead of Ave,
The cover of the annual will remain
the same as last year, but the flyleaves will be of a special heavy
paper, with art work in green and
black. Pages of the same paper will
separate the different sections of the
book. Illustrations and art work will
carry  the Indian  motif  throughout,
Graduating students and executives
may get, in touch with the staff by
leaving a message at the Bookstore.
Students are urged to co-operate with
the staff by turning in their pictures
and write-ups as soon as possible.
Whimster and CampbeU To Speak in
Winnipeg—Nemets and Miss Walker
Oppose U. of Alberta
Bill Whimster and Paul Campbell,
Varsity intercoUeglate debaters, left
this morning for Winnipeg to engage
Manitoba's best speakers next Friday in the Prairie City. The two
teams will wage their wordy battle
on the subject "Resolved that the
civilization of the United States is
a greater danger to the world than
that of Russia."
WhUe Whimster and CampbeU are
away, Nathan Nemets and Eleanor
Walker, composing the Varsity's
home team, will donate' with tiie
University of Alberta on the same
topic. It is expected that this debate wUl take place In King Edward
Auditorium, Friday.
Both debaters are hi the McOoun
series, a standing competition of tha
Western Inter • coUegiate Debating
League. For five years past, debates in this series have taken placo
on the third Friday In January,
when the University making tiie
largest score is awarded the McOoun
cup. Points are given solely by
judges, the maximum any one team
may obtain being three.
Rules of the series state that each
college shall have two teams, one to
debate "at home" and the other at
a neighboring institution. This year
Manitoba wiU send one'of its teams
to Saskatchewan, while the farmers
in turn are to visit Edmonton.
Thus far in the series ,the coveted
McGoun trophy has never found its
way to the Pacific Coast, but both
U. B. C. teams declare that they are
hopeful of success this time. AU
four speakers have had considerable
experience, and it is expected that
they will  show exceptional  ability.

Take Notice
A report of the Christmas examination standing of all students holding Government Bursaries was sent to the Minister
of Education a few days ago. A
letter from the Minister has
just been received stating that
before the balance of their Bursaries can be paid he must have
a certificate from the University that these students are actually in attendance this term.
WiU holders of Government
Bursaries, therefore, please report at the Registrar's office
without delay?
N.F.C.U.S. Forms
Friendly Spirit
Believes Vance
Federation Sponsors Plan to Send Debating Teams Abroad—Plans Also
Made for Federation of Canadian Athletes
Returning from the N.F.C.U.S. conference held at McMaster University,
December 28-31, Earl Vance states his
belief that the Federation is one of
tiie most effective means of forming
relationships between the Canadian
Universities and for promoting a spirit
of friendship and goodwiU.'
This is shown especially, he says, in
the wiUlngness of the larger Institutions to pay more than their share of
the expenses Jn the co-operative
scheme for financing delegates.
Delegates wero present from tiie
Marltlmes to B.C., Toronto sent eight
students, including three women. A
representative from Montreal gave an
address In French.
W. Kenny, the new president, haa
been private secretary to Right Honorable Arthur Melghan, and is how
secretary-treasurer of one of Canada's
largest financial houses and president
of Studenta' Council at tho University
of Toronto, The first vice-president is
Doff Grant, of Dalhousie, and the
second Vice-president is M. E. Manning, of Alberta. To secretary-treasurer Percy Daires goes much of the
credit for the success of the Federation, beUoves Earl Vance.
Tfee Federation's debating policy wiU
be Io bring as many teams as possible
frefn foreign countries, especially from
Groat Britain. Former tours have
proved successful. Rather than sponsoring inter-collegiate debates, the
Federation will send Canadian teams
to other countries. To encourage debating among women a team of women from three western universities
will go east in 1933, and a team >of
women from three eastern institutions
of Canadian Athletic Unions, composed of the W.C.I.A.U., the C.I.A.U.
and the M.I.A.U. Formerly the Central Union has claimed Canadian
championships but now it will cooperate with the Federation of Athletic Unions which will declare the
champions In the different sports.
"The student exchange plan, perhaps
the most important work of the Federation, has been most successful," declared the U.B.C. delegate. Further
announcements about this scheme wiU
appear in later issues of tiie Ubyssey.

Everyone out!
Mr. John Maxwell, another tall student in Arts and Medicine, Is a general favorite in the open forum debates. John was Secretary-treasurer of
his class last year. He showed his good judgment in remaining at the U. of
A. and declining to accept the exchange school scholarship which he won.
Mr. Arthur D. Bierwagon is a tall, dark Arts and Law student who was
not content last year with a first class general standing and three scholarships, but also showed his ability as President of his class and as a member
of the team which defeated the U.B.C. debaters here. It is generally conceded that the victory was mainly due to Mr. Bierwagon's efforts.
These two men have teamed up ever since they were known to exist.
Both from Calgary—both having taught school—both going with the same
girl—and  both  debating,  though  never  before  on  the  same  side  of  the
argument.   When this formidable team meets the U.B.C

Earl Vance, President A.M.S., has
recently returned from Hamilton, Ont.,
where he represented U.B.C. at the
annual conference of the N.F.C.U.S,
Vance believes that the activities of
the Federation do much to promote
a closer bond of union among Canadian universities.
Turner Elected Ciais
President By
Contrary to the precedent set by the
majority of past freshman classes,
Arts '35, yesterday, elected to lta
presidency an out-of-town student,
Ray Turner of Kamloops. Lois Scot*
was elected vice-president, while BiU
Ditmars and Mary Thompson were
chosen to fUl the offices of treasurer
and secretary respectively.
The elections were held at a lively
meeting which nearly filled AppUod
Science 100. The three candidate*,
Crocker, Ditmars and Turner,, each
addressed the audience briefly.
Crocker emphasized the extent of his
previous experience, and stated his
intention, if elected, of reviving the
old Freshman class spirit. Ditmars
outUned his plans for a more original
class party, and urged greater cooperation between the members of the
class executive and better support of
the Pep Club. Turner, the final candidate, said that the Freshman class had
brought much new blood and enthusiasm into the university, and that if
the talent present were combined it
would make a great name for the
Class of '35. Three other men also
spoke in support of the candidates.
Turner has had previous experience
in all lines of activity, having been
literary president and senior magazine editor at Kamloops High School,
and having been very prominent In
sports. He once held a seat in the
Boys' Parliament.
The President-elect lias announced
that another class meeting will be
held during the noon hour next Friday, January 15, in Applied Science
100. The chief business wiU be election of men's and women's athletic
representatives, and tht literary representative. Candidates for athletic
representative are Frank Rush, Jack
Waimsley, Eileen Parkhill, and Peggy
Stoker, while those for literary representative are Margaret Beaumont
and llae Gordon. Further class business will also be discussed.

some time.
Then from centre field a sensational
three quarter run started by Dave

for the first try. It was not converted.
Victoria raUled strongly and forced
Varsity; the Island serum was heavier
than that of the Blue and Gold and
made several dribbling attacks.
Play centred about mldfleld for
some time then Victoria forced the
play to Varsity's line, and after several
attempts the islanders secured the
ball, and Reg Wimmlter of Victoria
started a run that ended with a try
for Victoria by Patrick. The attempted

Varsity's scrum, though Ughter, was

Chris Dalton was noticed for stopping
several attacks that looked dangerous
arid twice he broke through attacks
by Intercepting passes that gained
yards for Varsity.
After several dangerous runs, a
breath-taking attack was started by
Varsity which culminated in Dave
Ellis going over for 3 points. It was

A Committee appointed by the Board ol
Governors of the University ia working on •
reduced budget for the fiscal year 1932-38. Thin itself is sufficient evidence that a out In the
University grant is anticipated. The magnitude
of this cut has not been madi public but
rumored estimates place it at a substantial
Obviously there must be a minimum of ex-
pense upon which the University can operate
and retain any degree of usefulness and self
respect. 'What this minimum Is the Board of
Governors Is best qualified to judge, but current opinion would suggest that the present
appropriation will not admit of any considerable decrease.
And why should the University not be
closed? It would only mean another thousand
or so added to the total of unemployed. How
nice it would be for the scores of Point Grey
residents who depend on students' board
checks; they would have their houses all to
themselves. The Sasamat area business men,
too; they would certainly be able to reduce the
number of their employees, and the down town
firms which handle not only the business of
U.B.C.'s 2000 students but also that of the
Faculty and staff and their dependents; what
a lot of trouble they would be saved: Then
there are the investors who hold the gymnasium bonds, the interest for which IS paid from
Alma Mater fees. What a time these people
could have whistling for their money. The
street car company would certainly be able to
reduce its rush hour staff while railways would
not be burdened with any holiday rush of out-
of-town students. Visitors from other places,
too; they could gaze from their rubber-neck
wagons at the University grounds overgrown
with grass and weeds', at the buildings with
broken windows, this view all unmarred by the
presence of loitering students. The automobile tourist from bankrupt Chicago, would he
not feel at home camping on the lawn in front
of the Library with the Lily Pond close at hand
in which to wash dishes?
It may be, however, that B.C. students believe sufficiently in education to go elsewhere
for it. Perhaps a majority would travel to
the U.S., taking with them $900 to $1000 per
student annually. Perhaps they would go to
the University in Winnipeg, fourth city of
the Dominion. Possibly they would study at
tiie University of Saskatchewan; Saskatchewan, the province which had the heart torn
out of it by the drought last summer. These
exiled students might choose to build their
characters in "Toronto the Good" or at McGill, where they could use their knowledge for
the benefit of a great seaport. All of these
places would be open to them for B.C., the
province of greatest per capita wealth, with its
metropolis, Vancouver, the city of 80 millionaires, would be the pioneer in the slaughter of
education. It would lead the way in repudiating ethical obligations to professors and students.
One thing is certain. There can be no cut
in the University grant until the legislature
meets and brings down the budget. If before
that time the Government is convinced that
public opinion would deplore the closing or
serious curtailment of the University, the grant
is not likely to fall below the essential minimum.
Previous student bodies have accomplished
much. Is the present one not capable of influencing public opinion to some small extent?
The University has a motto.
With this issue the Ubyssey once more becomes a six column paper. This can in no way
be considered as a retrogressive step since the
seven column sheet was an experiment only.
It is thought expedient, in view of the fact that
advertising returns are far less than was compatible with the expense of producing a larger
sheet, to reduce the size of the page by one
column, thereby saving forty dollars a week.
Should conditions warrant, it will be readily
possible to increase the size of any one issue to
six pages.
: After attending "The Barretts of Wimpole
Street," I am moved to give the Vancouver
Theatre another free ad. That play was most
excellently staged and acted, and
Mora the two productions this week,
Generosity with  Oliver  Goldsmith's  "She
Stoops to Conquer" and Barrie'g
"Quality Street" next week, will surely be
worth seeing. Many plays merely amuse, deliberately or uninfentionally. for example, myself remained aloof and ironical amid i weeping audience at Sir John Martin Harvey's "The
Only Way,"- but at "The Barretts of Wimpole
Street" I was taken out of myself. It is, I believe, a characteristic of successful drama that
it maintains its illusion. If I am any judge,
then, the work of Sir Barry Jackson's company
is of a standard seldom seen In Vancouver.

I have often wondered about the origin
of the expression "O. K.," and have at last
read an explanation. It occurs in an article
by William H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray,
Hoka Governor of Oklahoma, in the Saturday Evening Post of December 19—
LENT TO ME BY A FRIEND. "General Andrew Jackson learned it from General Pushmataha, the great leader of the Choctaws and
Chickasaws .... possibly the greatest full-
blooded Indian who ever lived. Pushmataha
was at the Battle of New Orleans with Jackson. He had a habit of ending all his statements with the Choctaw-Chickasaw expression, "Si Hoka," meaning "That's me," or
"That's what I said." Jackson took the two
letters in the English alphabet that gave the
closest approximation of "Hoka"—O. K. He
used these letters, O.K., in approving orders,
and the expression has come down to us and
is now in popular use."
This reminds me that during an earlier, but
by no means dead, interest in the history and
relics of the Indians, I read that their orators
often concluded speeches with "That is all I
have to say." Probably "Hoka," and its equivalent in the other languages, may be so translated.

From time to time The Vancouver Sun
shows itself a strong supporter of the University, but with its six-column front page streamer on Friday morning—"U. B. C.
Freedom" ERNER"—the "Sun" did this institution no good service. The article itself, in which W. F. Payton, editor of the
Toronto "Varsity," expresses surprise at the
intermingling of men and women on the campus, was harmless enough, but it was over-
featured—and the choice of words in the headline seems to have been calculated to catch
the public eye, regardless of the undesirable
impression it would give.
Mr. Peyton's impressions are interesting,
and, while he was surprised, he may not have
intended any adverse criticism. At any rate, it
would be hard to convince students of this
university that there is anything shocking in
the association to which both sexes have been
accustomed from elementary school upward.
One may not favor co-education at all, but
since we have it, it is well that there should
be nothing unnatural in the arrangement.
If visitors from Toronto are shocked, we
must regret it deeply. To us, however, the
prim segregation that apparently prevails at
Toronto seems rather amusing. I think we
have nothing to learn about co-education from
the eastern institution.

The first symptons of measles appear about four days before the rash.
They at first resemble the symptoms
ot a cold, with fever. Hence anyone
developing symptoms of a cold at

AU students, whether they participate in other athletic activities or
not are invited to turn out on Wednesday to try the workout with our
instructor in Swedish Gymnastics.
Bring running shoes, shorts or
trousers, and shirt for strip and also
a towel to enjoy the shower afterwards.
We expect this class to continue
throughout the term, as it affords a
very good epportunity for men students to keep in condition and learn
some, elementary gymnastics and apparatus work.
AU those who decide to take advantage of this class for the term will
be charged the sum of $2.00 to defray
the expense of an instructor. However, we hold no one under obUgatlon
for trying the workout for one week.
We are gradually acquiring a good
amount of equipment for gym work.
At present we have four double-
length mats, a substantial box horse
with special spring board, parallel
bars, horizontal bar and a professional
spring board for display work.

For Others
The influx of students taking short

serious congestion in the Cafeteria
The management has pointed out
that there would be little need for
this condition if regular students
would vacate their places promptly
during the noon rush. It is stated
emphatically that the Cafeteria is
not a place for studying, and the
business of the place is being injured by students who occupy tables
for long periods and thus keep potential  customers  waiting.

*t Best Tonight
Varsity's Senior Soccermen, after
out-playing Chinese Students for a
major part of the game, ware forced
to content themselves with a 3-all
draw at Kerrisdale Park on Saturday.
The old fault of lack ot finish once
more spoilt Varsity's chance of taking both points. After an Initial
Chinese raid from the kick-off, Varaity penned the Studenta In their
own half of the field, but it was
twenty minutes before tho attack
brought results. Finally, however,
Jack Waugh mat a cross from the
left with a first-time drive to find
the not. The score waa soon levelled, however, when Quene Yip,
former Varsity star, waa allowed to
break away and equalize on a
pretty sob effort. The score remained tied until the last minute of
tho half. Jock Waugh, playing his
first game on tha forward line, was
again successful in converting a centre from Laurie Todd, sending the
goalie over the lino with the ball.
Varsity left the field with a 2-1 lead
at the interval.
During the struggle from which
the last goal was scored, the Chinese
goalie acquired a nose-bleed, and
another took his place on resumption. The play waa even for some
time with Varsity still holding the
edge. About fifteen minutes from
the start, Dock Yip tied the score
again on another beautiful solo attack, whUe within two minutes
Quene Yip had added his second
goal' of the game, putting the Students in the lead for the first time.
Stung into action by these reverses,
the Varsity forwards commenced a
bombardment of the Chinese goal,
which lasted to the end of the game.
They were successful in tieing the
score when Waugh secured from a
melee on the right and centred for
Costain to convert. From then to
the end was a succession of Varsity
attacks with the Chinese making
few replies.
Laurie Todd and Archie McDougal
were the individual stars of the
game, the latter especially turning in
a wonderful exhibition. His passing
and tackling were practically perfect, while he combined with
Laurie Todd to form the spear-head
of the Varsity attack.
The team: Frattinger, McGill,
Grant, Wright, Kozoolin, McDougal,
Waugh, Munday, Costain, Todd, (D),
and Todd  (L).

Several Members In Future Contests
One of the most lavish and stupendous productions ever to reach
the U. B. C. stage wiU be the gala
pep meeting to be put on Tuesday
at noon as advance ballyhoo for tht
Portland Multnomah-Varsity .game,
which Is slated for Tuesday night
in the U. B. C. gym.
Members of the various hoop
squads have shed the running ahoes
and sweat shirts in favor of grease
paint and managers Falconer and
Raid are confident that tha talent
presented wttl bo oven higher than
the league averages of their proteges.
The production wUl bo entirely
put on by baslcetbaU players with
the possible exception of musical
entertainment. It Is rumored that
one of the better dance bands has
offered to play for the affair and
any upper classmen will remember
the popularity of the bands that
played in the Interests of the Stadium Fund of last year. Jack Emerson and Malcolm Pretty wUl contribute their services with a few
piano duets.
So that the general atmosphere
of the meeting will not sink below
the culture lino of all college students, two dramatic bits have been
prepared which will be both educational and edifying. The first of
these will depict that soul-stirring
scene which has plucked at the heart
strings of literally millions—"The
Ride of Paul Revere." The feminine
leads In this drama will be Miss
Lois Scott and Miss Eileen Parkhill;
Paul Revere will be enacted by the
dramatic find of the year, Mr.
Truck McDonald, while the love interest will be played by Hal (Gable)
Straight as only Hal (Gable)
Straight can play it. The other literary gem which is to be presented
will be a Bedtime story—simple,
tragic, full of pathos. There is a
possibility of a third play—negotiations are now under way with Mr.
Scotty Mclnnes to revive his version
of a play which he made famous
when but a youngster—"The Volga
Boatman." A brief interlude will
be provided with a skit which will
afford a glance into the inner workings of the Chamber of Commerce.
As soon as the entertainment Is
over Varsity will have its first
chance of glimpsing their home
team since its return from their
trans-Canada tour. A big turnout
is expected to welcome the boys
back and it is also predicted that a
large number wUl turn out Tuesday night when they swing right into action again with the Multnomah

Pi Campbell, one of the outstanding members of the team In the inter-collegiate series, wUl be a probable starter on the B. C. forward

either Cy Lee or Laurie Nicholson.
Bob Osborne and Doug Maclntyre
are likely candidates for the guard

Armstrong and Gordon Root wUl
be sitting on the bench.
So far no definite word has been
received as to the strength of the
visiting squad. From previous exhibitions that the Rose City cage
stars have put on in Vancouver, the
fixture will give a very good idea
of the strength of the Dominion
titleholders this year. Like all of
the American teams, the Multnomah
aggregation will probably use a fast
breaking offensive, relying mainly
on long shots and rebounds rather
than on working the ball in under
the basket. It was this style of play
that proved so disastrous against
the Blue and Gold squad in Seattle

Varsity resumed play with higher
hopes and forced the issue from the
outset. Fifteen minutes from time,
with a scrum on Normal's five-yard
line, Sumner of Varsity Intercepted
a pass and went over for the first
points of the match. This went unconverted. Shortly after Barclay
scored again for Varsity In much
the same manner as the first try.
Sumner missed the convert. With
but three minutes left to play, McDonald raced across for the final
try. As this also was unconverted,
the score ended 9-0 in Varsity's favor. The boys deserve credit for
the way In which they turned back
such a formidable team, a victory
which would have been noticeable
even with a full side.
Varsity: McDonald, Sumner, Barclay, Harcourt, McConnachle, Stirling, Motherwell, Smith, McArthur,
and Lea.
Grass Hockey Team
Narrowly Defeated
By Cricketers, 4-3
The Varsity Grass Hockey squad
was unfortunate tn losing a hard-
fought match to the Cricketers on
Saturday by the close score of 4-3.
The stick wielders felt the absence
of two of their best men in Lee and
or and played throughout with
only ten men. Two of the Cricketers
tallies came from penalty bullies a
few yards from goal.
Varsity had the better of the game
up to half time but the strain of
playing a man short began to make
itself felt immediately after the interval.
For the Blue and Gold squad Delap and Ritchie were very good at
full-back while Selder played a
stellar game in goal. Barr and Le
Page turned in first class performances on the wing, and Knight
(2) and Punnett (1) did the scoring
for the College team.
There will be a practice on Wednesday at 3:30 sharp and everybody
(e expected to be on hand.
Junior Soccer
Team Turns In
Initial Victory
Varsity started the new year' right
when they defeated the Rovers to
the tune of 6-0 on the campus Saturday. The latter however, were
fighting an uphill battle all the way
owing to a shortage of players, and
while the Blue and Gold squad
demonstrated a decided superiority
the score would undoubtedly have
been much more moderate had the
opposition been able to field a full
The Rovers' custodian was outstanding in defending his goal while
Cy Smith and McLeod showed up
well on the College defense. Mundie,
Atwater and Ramsden were the
most effective forwards, and the
team showed considerable improvement over all past performances.
With a little coaching and encouragement the Juniors are expected to
make a more impressive record for
the balance of this season.
Following is the line-up: Shayler,
Roper, Cy Smith, McLeod. Goumin-
iouk, Kincade, Mundie, Fletcher,
Ramsden,  Atwater and Orme.
Washington game
Whether the students will use the
man to man or the zone type of defense has not been made known.
Undoubtedly they are stronger In
the latter style, but may use the Individual checking system in order
to strengthen that department.

Phil Barrett made history when he
secured the ball on a pass from Ellis
and slid over. The convert from a
difficult angle faUed, and the score
was still 11-9 against Varsity.
With defeat staring them in the face,
another spectacular run was staged.
Victoria stopped It and things looketi
bad, when a cyclone broke loose in
theh person of Phil Barrett,, who,
after a pass by Gaul, streaked Uke a
flash for the line and made the winning try. Score* 12-11 for Varsity!
Barratt, Ellis, Mercer and Gaul were
outstanding. Derry Tye at half played
his usual heady game and directed
the scrum well. Nixon, Pearson, Rogers
and Brown played great games at

Entries are now being received for
the big golf tournament of the year,
the University Open Championship.
Entry sheets have been posted in
and play will get under way as soon
as enough shekels are collected. The
tournament will be as usual a handicap affair and with all of last
year's team back competition should
be Interesting. Charlie McCadden
will be out to defend the title that
he has won for the past two years
but a lot of the boys are 'counting
on giving the slight champ a real
run for his money. What with
balmy weather and reduced rates at
the University course many golfers
are playing a round or two a week.
Entrie sheets have been posted in
the common room and will be received and drawn up by Arnle
PoweU within the next two weeks.
