Student staff of the University of
Washington Daily displaced the regular staff of the Vancouver Sun on
Tuesday, one week after a similar
adventure on the part of the Ubyssey
staff. The American visitors arrived
on Monday by auto, carried out an
extensive size up of the town, then set
to work on the Issue.
Directing the publication was Richard L. Williams, journalism senior.
Stuart Welch acted as columnist, supplanting Bob Bouchette, and Frances
Lucas of the weak before. Two faculty merabers from the University of
Washington superviseds the wrrk:

anticipating the trip. If all goes well
twelve or fifteen students will be
selected, leave one morning and return the following evening. Expenses
will be partly defrayed by a stipend.
Les Chansons de Vieux Temps
(Songs of the Good Old Days) will
form the program of the concert to
be held on Friday, February 3, by
the French Literary and Dramatic
Society. Each Folk-song has been
developed into a delightful little pantomime by Miss Bassin, director. An
English synopsis will be presented
by the "orateur," M. Andre Hisette
before the song, so that those who
do not take their French to concerts,
will understand everything perfectly.
The three French Clubs on the
campus, La Canadienne, La Causerie,
and L'Allouette have combined to
present this concert. Twenty men
and women students and graduates
will take part. Miss Bassin, formerly lecturer on Methods in Music in
the Department of Education, is the
director. Mr. Ross Lort, of the Little Theatre, and Miss Sheila Boyd,
graduate of the Art School, are designing the stage settings, which will
be modern in treatment.
Mr. George Coutts. well known in
musical circles in the city, has arranged several songs for string quartette and pianoforte.

CouncU gave Its sanction to the
proposal of the Varsity Swimming
Club to show moving pictures of
Olympic swimming stars on the
campus with the object of arousing
the interest of students in swimming.
It also decided to investigate alleged breaches of discipline on the
part of certain members of the McKechnie Cup English Rugby team on
its Visit to Victoria recently. Council
members were of the opinion that
enforcement of discipline on the
campus was becoming too lax, and
Bill Whimster pointed out that while
members of a team, or any students
were travelling at the expense of
the Alma Mater Society, they were
subject to the rules of discipline of
that body.
Other matters attended to by
Council included the award to J.
McCance of the contract for the erection of scenery for the approaching Musical Society production, and
the passing of the budget for the
Arts '36 class party.

Ballsy Begbie" to Arts 100 Monday
afternoon, D. A. MacGregor, one of
the chief editorial writers of the
Dally Province, repeated his address
given before Vancouver Institute
early this term. Mr. MacGregor consented to repeat his speech at the
request of the History department.
Mr. MacGregor gave a brief historical aketoh of conditions to B. C.
as they were at the time of Begble's
appointment as Chief Justice of the
province. With many humourous
touches, he gave a graphic picture of
the Cariboo gold rush and Begble's
connection with lt after his appointment in 1858.
Begbie came to B. C. In 1858 to take
the post of Chief Justice under Sir
James Douglas. He was quite unprepared for the hardships he was
to meet, and when sworn to at Fort

"Impressionism is a world of new
relations to the sun and atmosphere,"
said Mrs. S. J. Schofleld in a paper
read before the Art Club Wednesday
night, on French impressionism.
The speaker showed that this impressionism was a revolt against the
old drab painting school of the previous few hundred years, and that
its exponents had a keen realization
of nature. She explained that their
technique consisted in blending light
in planes rather than In painting
According to Mrs. Schofield's paper,

Gregor's estimation, the title of
"The Godfather of B. C."
There were no roads, no railroads,
and Begbie had to follow the gold-
miners into the most inaccessible
parts of the province. Mr. MacGregor gave a convincing picture of
Begble's dynamic personality, indomitable courage and enormous energy,
shown in his determined observation
of his duty in the face of terrible
difficulties. On one occasion he with
Moody had to, with the help of a
contingent of Royal Engineers, quell
an Incipient war between two Cal-
Ifornian mining factions.

bone of contention in U.B.C.'s first
radio debate, scheduled for Friday,
February 3, against University of
Alberta orators.
Representing Varsity are Milt
Owen and Jim Ferris, both outstanding Parliamentary Forum debaters.
Milt Owen is Junior member on
Council, having since his entrance to
the university held many executive
positions. He is an ex-president of
Arts '34 and an ex-cabinet member
of the Tuxis Boys' Parliament.
Jim Ferris is a new-comer to Varsity debating circles, but this outstanding freshman has rapidly become one of its noted orators. He
is a former Magee High School debater and is present premier of the
Boys' Parliament.
and were in love with the ordinary
world about them.
Their claim, the paper said, is to
produce exactly the fugitive aspect
of things and therefore to present a
true realism; to limit painting to ap-t
pearances, and to exclude from It anecdotes, history and moral teachings
as subject matter.
The paper concluded by referring to
Turner as the father of impressionism,
whose analysis of color led the French
to emphasize the colors revealed by
momentary vision rather than by more
normal impressions.
At the close of the meeting John
Ridington announced that a group
of impressionistic pictures had arrived in Vancouver, and would probably
be exhibited at the university next

U. S. Nationalism

"Nationalism is a state of mind
which implies a faith in the superiority of one's own nation over other
nations," declared Don Davidson in
a paper on 'Nationalism in the
United States,' delivered at a meeting of the Historical Society, Monday
evening, at the home of Mrs. McDonald. "American nationalism was
fostered by the wars of 1812 and 1860
and culminated when she entered
the world war to maintain her national prestige.  _ .„.

Kayo Lamb, Arts '27, a former
University student who wss graduated with honors to History, now
studying at the University of London
for his doctorate, has recently discovered the private papera and letters of one of the leaders of the
early Labour party In Great Britain.
The 'material was discovered as a '
result of an advertisement to the
London Dally Herald, and adds
greatly to the fund of knowledge
available about the early formative
period of the party. /
Mr. Lamb was the winner of the
Nlchol scholarship to 1927 and studied
under the famous historian, Dr. Andrea Selgfreid, at the Sorbonne to
Paris. At present he is working
under the direction of Dr. Harold
Laskl on his thesis, "The Early Origin of the British Labour Party."
Mr. Lamb was prominent on the
campus here, being a member of the
Historical Society, a winner of the
Players' Club prize for an original
one-act play, and a Very popular
student among those at Fairview.
Good news greeted habitues of the
cafeteria to the forgotten days of
1923. Apparently the depression of
that date was making itself felt for
by the constant movement towards
the frontiers, by the Constitution
and the Monroe Doctrine, which finally prevented her domination by

High-jinx was in the air. Rumours of hula-hula girls and follies
reminiscent of Mr. Ziegfeld were
freely circulating about the campus.
An Apache dance minus the male
allure must have been rather a mild
affair, but nevertheless the girls
seem to have enjoyed themselves, in
spite of the fact that no members of
the male sex were discovered at the
affair. Perhaps the girls made their
warnings too ominous.

hope it will still be recognized; that the guise
will not be a disguise.
With the advent of another weekly feature, "Apes and Ivory," by Arthur Mayse,
we restrict ourselves to a mere column and a
half, and allow our literary aspects to have a
freer expression. Arthur Mayse is hoping to
receive a whole raft of contributions and to
print them with intelligent comment whore
We would like to emphasize again the fact
that there will be no further literary supplement this year, but that it is hoped that the
new column will allow those on the campus
who yearn for literary expression to give vent
to their emotions.
Contributions should be addressed to this
office, care of "Apes and Ivory."
As a campus personality and aa head of the
department of philosophy, Dr. H. T. J. Coleman needs no introduction. But as a poet
whose work has won favourable comment both
in Vancouver and the world outside, he ia not
go well Known among us as he should be. This
is ifortly due to his modest bearing in regard
to his compositions, partly to the, fact that ht
does not allow even poetry to interfere with nil

A veritable deluge of correspondence has
descended upon our quiet office for today's
paper. We are always glad to receive and
print correspondence, but we do like to know
the names of our correspondents. It has always been the policy of this paper to refuse to
print letters to the editor Wess they are accompanied by the name (not necessarily for
publication) of the author.
We have made an exception in a few cases
today, because we felt that students should use
the column more than has been the case for the
past term.
Intelligent comment is what we want, whether of our own editorial policy or of campus
politics.   Let's have it, students.

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I believe I am doing my duty aa
a member of tiie AJma Mater Society to Informing you of an opportunity to make a so-called "scoop"
for your publication.
Why not write a report of Friday's
Alma Mater meeting before it happens? Down-town papers do It regularly when they are certain they
know what is going to occur.
You might write the headline
"Students Respond Whole-heartedly" of ''Bound tha Oong of Oener-
oatty." We 111 know wilt is going
to happen.
Ws will emerge from the Auditorium after an hour or more ft use-
leas debating concerning mob psychology, the secret ballot, loyalty to
our Alma Mater, faithfulnaas to a
foot-ball field, and half-a-hundred
other topics that are net worth mentioning, having nledatd ourselves for
another UNO for tha dratoins"of our
good oV mud hole - th* Stadium,
which is rapidly becoming the campus white eleph-Ut. We will have
sumorted tha Students' Council to
Aid it Is quite oorraot that wo
should support our executive. If w#
didn't, they would be left out In
the cold And after all, they know
better than we do that we oan afford to spend another dollar.
The caution-money method Is worn
out. I cannot see how ihe Board ef
Governors can sanation a compul-
sory levy M you suggatt in yqir
editorial. I am certain they will not
be that indiscreet, The caution
money Is ours until we ourselves
give lt away individually. As to the
Idea of Council running to the Governors for help I would say that
they wero vying to "pass the buck"
on a big scale.
Perhaps I am an "inevitable depression blabber." Why not? I have
nearly every student at the University as company. I prefer to "blab"
rather than pay out money for repairing a field whan I have no assurance that the field will be any
better than before. A certain professor at this university has repeated
again and again that a playing field
can't be drained to that swamp. My
common sense is convincing me that
he is correct.
However, if Council can drain the
Stadium as well as they have drained
our pockets to the past, let them go
ahead. It will be drier than the
Sahara Desert.
Yours truly,
P.S.: On second thought, the
"scoop" Idea isn't so clever. Students
might change their minds and vote
down Council's suggestion. And
then again, there is the great possibility of "no quorum." So "wait
a while!"
Oh! that's all right, don't mention
it. You are welcome to any more
of my bright ideas.
N The visit of the UB.C. team was
I a very pleasant One for, those of us
who came to contact with them during their all too brief stay and revived memories of "home" to some
of us who claim Canada as our native land.
I wish to urge that the U.B.C.
send a debating team down to this
country every year. There are at
least ten and possibly fifteen colleges
and universities on the Pacific Coast
that I am sure would welcome a
Canadian debating team, If suitable
arrangements were made to advance.
•The publicity value as well as ths
good will crested would be beyond
estimation, especially If suoh a tour
became an annual event.
My heart is filled with longing, and can stay
A moment only, yet It cherishes
The memory of that which perishes
When lt had added joy to one brief day;
And when In winter withered clusters cling
To naked boughs, it dares to dream of spring.
Although Dr. Coleman is much interested
in free verse, his writing for the past few
months has consisted largely of sonnets. "In
my own experience as a writer," he says, "I
find that different moods call for different
forms of poetic expression." The sonnet which
t set down here makes rather an interesting
contrast to the one above.
A silver fish that swims the central blue;
A vessel voyaging uncharted seas
More wonderful than those Columbus knew '
In times long past when to the Atlantic breeze
He loosed his daring sail for unknown aborts;
A mighty bird that scorns to be confined
To narrow limits and, exulting, soars
Upward, and leaves this little earth behind.
Familiar fancies these, and now again
I look and see In the bright depths above
The gleaming pinions of an aeroplane
So distant that lt scarcely seems to move.
I know it travels still on resolute wins;
Triumph and type of man's adventuring.
Dr. Coleman believes that poetry in Can'
ada has a bright future:
"It is unwise to look for a Canadian school
of poetry, because of the fact that our rela
tionships with other peoples become increas<
ingly intimate. No mind that hopes to grow
can remain a provincial mind—but there un
doubtedly is in Canadian life, in its history and
natural features, a wealth of subject matter
and an inspiration barely touched."
To the beginner in poetry he gives a few
words of practical advice well worth reporting:
"Don't be embarassed by those who wish to
probe the reasons for your verses, and who
find an exact and damaging parallel to your
imaginative adventures in the experiences of
your daily life. Personal experience, perhaps
trivial, gives a poem; this poem may flower into
a universal experience. Poetry does not speak

Editor Ubyasey,
Dear Sir f    T
L#ft failure heard much about adverse publicity as crested b> Unl-
varsity »ocuu functions. I have nothing to siy shout social functions, but
I tjltok we wimld do well to ward
off adverse publicity displayed in
other ways.   ■-•'"
Personally I can't see how any
publicity em be ii* adverse as the
type piwtnted to an article headed
"U-B.C. Men Prefer American Co-
eds" thst sppesrsd to Tuesday's issue of the Vancouver Sun.
Probably the average student who
read the article took it seriously,
however, the af eiage gun reader
probably assumes that UB.C. students have nothing hotter to think
about than to ponder upon the superiority that thi American Co-ed
has attained by sophisticated use of
cosmetics. I don't see why students
should waste their time to tell Sun
reporters that they prefer Amerlcsn
Co*ds because they use more paint.
In reply to the Sun's statement
"The only nun on the campus who
was not sure that American Co-eds
were 'better dates' was Sln-Jln Madeley.' ' I beg to state that I am quite
sure that Canadian Co-eds are good
enough for me. I should like to
'suggest that these 'ads' who are to-
I terested in co-eds, and can't see beyond their paint and sophistication,
go to a university where those
things are plentiful.
Yours sincerely,
HOW die can anyone account for the
growth ln popularity
which is enjoyed by
Canada's favouflte

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
There has been some criticism of
the so called "childishness" bf those
students who Indulge In noisy fun
before lectures and at Pep meetings.
One of the critics has even broken
Into print, apparently because his
own bean got mixed up with the'
beans shot from the gallery on a
recent occasion.
It is noticeable that most of such
criticism comes from those students
who are very anxious to appear mature and sophisticated; and use various devices to achieve the desired
result, among these the device of
calling others "childish."
Perhaps your correspondent, who
desplsns bean-shooting, belongs to
the C.O.T.C. and prefers to learn
to shoot his fellow men (to a world
where co-operation la the one condition of survival). Or he may be
one of those who thinks the mark
of maturity )s to flaunt his Fraternity membership in the Caf. and
other public places. As long as
there is so much pseudo-sophistication' strutting about the campus, the
University is bound to have "childish" demonstrations ln sheer protest.
So far as unpleasant publicity for
the University Is concerned, the man
on the street doesn't care a hoot
about* some beans peppered at a Pep
meeting. But he does concern himself about those University students
for whom the only way to appear
mature is to become "plastered" on
public occasions.
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Re the article In ths Vancouver
Sun concerning the co-eds of the
good old U.S.A.
We grant that the American coeds dp dregs well but it must be remembered that they have something
to dress for. Perhaps the reason why
so few of us are seen at the various
Varsity Functions is that the men
prefer not to be seen with our less
sophisticated, not so well made up
women. We happen to know many
co-eds, here and elsewhere, who would
be embarrassed if found dead with
a U.B.C. man.
Can one compare favorably UB.C.
men with even those of the U. of W.
Believe  It or not,
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Last evening I attended a debate, I
between a team from the U.B.C. and .
a   team   from   Stanford   University
which was   held   on   the   Stanford'
campus.   The nearest I ever came to
attending the U.B.C. was to take the
matriculation examinations at North
Vancouver High School in 1926, but |
I could not help being proud of the
manner   in   which   Neil   Perry   and
Victor Dryer represented your university.     I  heard nothing but extremely   favorable    comment    from
certain members of the audience who
usually tend to be very critical. Mr.
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sin
Your issue of January 24 contained
a report of Dr Haywood's recent address before the Vancouver Institute
whereto he made some rather misleading remarks relative to Christian
Science. Students of Christian Science have the greatest respect for
the motives and attainments of the
majority of physicians.
Christian Science does not employ
suggestion to its healing ministrations, but on the contrary it recognizes repeated suggestion aa one
of the basic causes of disease rather
than a remedial agent,
If a man la filled with such destructive thoughts as those of hatred,
selfishness, envy, fear, worry, anger,
and revenge, tbe effects are certainly
productive of unhappiness and even
of disease, and all the Inanimate
drugs and surgery in the world will
not remove these thoughts or their
effect. Christian Scientists do not
claim that they have entirely overcome all these thoughts, but they are
grateful for the progress they have
already made and that they have a
religion that is teaching them to overcome destructive thinking and its
bad effects mentally and physically
Christian Scientists endeavor to be
law abiding citizens and although
they may believe that a law nerds
amending, as long as lt remains on
the statute book, they maintain that
it should be obeyed as far aa possible, hence their submission to
quarantine regulations and vaccination, when required by law.
I wish to call your readers' attention to the attitude of goodwill and
enlightenment displayed by the Harvard Medical School who arranged
with The Christian Sdence Board
of Directors of the First Churoh of
Christ Scientist, Boston, Massschus-
etts, for a speaker to give an authentic address on the subject of Christian Science. The students of Brown
University, Providence, Rhode Island,
to their desire to have correct Information regarding Christian Science
also arranged for an authorized address. The University of Washington
made arrangements for a representative of the Christian Science Church
to give the baccalaureate address to
the 1932 graduating class.
That progressive educational institutions and social organizations all
over the world are united to motive
to break down class and sectarian
bitterness, thus establishing peace and
goodwill among men, Is one of the
encouraging signs that Christianity
is overcoming hatred, one of the underlying causes of war, and is bringing aboUt the brotherhood of man.

"This student body owes it to the
student body of three years ago to
raise the required sum," stated the
president of the A.M.S. "Three
years ago they raised $20,000 to
launch the stadium campaign, and it
was then thought that each subsequent year a sacrifice would be made
to ensure completion of the stadium.
"It is felt that the time has arrived when this student body must
be called upon to make a sacrifice in

he declared.

Senior A Men Eke Out
Narrow Victory After
Leading By Big Margin
Eighteen Point Lead Drops To Two Points
In Second Half—Varsity Easily Superior
In First Three-quarters of Game.
With an eighteen point lead midway through the second half, .Varsity Senior A cagemen decided to
take a Uttle rest, and sat back to
watch Coley Hall's V.A.C. squad
knock off sixteen of the eighteen
point advantage before the final
whistle blew. The finish found the
Blue and Gold first string men nursing a bare two point margin with the
score at 33-31.
Hall's supposedly pugnacious team
proved remarkably mild mannered
throughout the game, and had only
four fouls caUed against them, while
the Varsity boys managed to coUect
eight. The first three-quarters of
the game consisted of straight basketball, with Varaity holding a decided edge through their superior
Varsity Takes Big Load
Coach Allen's charges got away
fast and soon ran up a lead of 7-1.
They were a Uttle uncertain on attack at the beginning and missed a
number of passes and shots, but
were good on defence, ana soon settled down to an off active passing attack.
As Vanity's lead rose to 13-3, ths
Clubmen sent to the redoubtable
Coley HaU and diminutive Jackie
Young to try to item the Collegians'
attack. However, the Blue and Oold
continued to forge ahead, and carried a tt-f lead into the second
Things went along to mueh the
same way during the first seven or
eight minutes of the last stanza, with
Varsity scoring eight points to the
Clubbers four. Apparently thinking
the game was won, the first string
Blue and Oold players retired from
the game. For a while the Blue and
Gold subs held their own, and Dick
Wright managed to add five points
to their total.
Strong V.A.C. Rally
However* with about eight minutes
to go, V.A.C. began to find the
range. Varsity had been holding a
33-15 lead but as Curtis, Chodat, HaU
and Young continued to drop in baskets from all angles, the margin
gradually disappeared until only six
of the eighteen points still separated
the teams. At this stage, and with
about two minutes remaining, Coach
Allen sent Osborne and Nicholson
in to stop the rally. This they managed to do, but not until further
baskets by Young and Curtis had
cut the lead to a slim two points.
For the first thirty minutes, Varsity gave a nice exhibition of passing,
grabbing rebounds and shooting. Had
they kept up the pace throughout
the game there is little doubt that
they could have doubled the score
on their opponents. As It was, by
Jaking the game for granted they
not only lost their substantial lead,
but almost lost the game as well.
The team: Osborne (2), Campbell
(5), Bardsley (4), Nicholson (2),
Ken Wright (11), Matthison (4),

In the laat isaue of the Ubyssey the Editor-in-Chief commented editorially on two proposed plans for "Raising necessary money to re-drain the Stadium site and make the field one
of which tiie University can be proud to invite teams to play
Today at noon you studenta will be asked at an Alma Mater
meeting to give your whole-hearted approval to one or other
of these plans. Since tiie playing field in its present condition
ig almost completely ugeless, one of these plans for re-drainage
must be adopted, or the field will stand in mute but convincing
evidence of the lack of college spirit on U.B.C. campus.
Students of past yean' sacrificed greatly and willingly to
make this dream come true. It was college spirit that made the
Stadium site possible and increased Varsity's prestige in relation to other Universities on the continent.
Now that this dream has become a reality through student
initiative and enterprise of the past, you students of today must
lend your whole-hearted cooperation to a plan that will enable
your Stadium field \o rank with the finest in Canada.
Every student should make it his or her duty to vote "Yes"

Commerce athletes wUl now compete
under their Own banner to, the Governor's cup tussles and to aU, other
Inter-faculty meets.
Commerce men thereby hope to
give an Impetus to tho movement
for establishing a Commerce faculty.
The number of first class athletes
enroUed in third and fourth years of
the B-Commerce courses farms a
basic Inducement for this decision,
according to the opinion raised in
the meeting. This means that Sid
Swift, winner of tha Arts '80 road
race and a favourite to take the
cross-country event, and Gordie
Stead wiU not compete for Arts '34
or '33 ln this classic. Arts will also
lose its best sprinter to BiU Stott,
who Is the fastest man over the
century route on the campus, with
the exception of Harold Wright. Now
that Dick Farrington, husky Big
Four captain, has signified his intention of attenptlng the Javelin
event, Commerce strength will thus
be enhanced in field events.
In inter-class basketball a strong
team should centre around Bandy
Tervo, former Canadian champion
star, and Budy Wiley. The boys
are quite keen, and should go places
and do tilings.

United at the Y.W.C.A. Wednesday

be a tough one.
Normal Orads have enly lost two
