British Columbia's $20,000,000
Fishinglndustry Finds Employment
f o r Eighteen Thousand Citizens
By Major J. A. Mother-well—Chief Supervisor of Fisheries.
British Columbia's fisheries, producing on an average
eighteen millions of dollars annually, represent from 40 to
45 per cent of the total value of the fisheries of the whole
The investment in the industry, in the way of vessels,
boats, gear, shore plants, etc., totals twenty-two millions of
dollars, and finds employment for eighteen thousand British
Columbians engaged directly in the fisheries. Eleven thousand of these are actual fishermen, or men engaged on boats
being used in connection with the fishing.	
Th* flatting operations cover tbe
catching of thirty varletiea ot (latt,
from the amall aand lance, a mere
minnow, to the giant whale, the
principal onea being aalmon, ball-
but, herring and pilchards.
The lntenalty ot tlsblng la largely controlled, of eourae, by tie
market demand ot tbe aeveral varletiea, and the situation at the preaent time la unuaually dtffloult due
to keen competition and protected
market*. Tbe reault la tbat tbe
Britiah Columbia product baa ln re
oent yeara been more and more
confined to outleta ln tbe Britiah
Bmpire. With even these marketa,
however, the competition from Rus.
alan and Japanese operatora, particularly ln tbe salmon business,
haa been very difficult to meet, aa
apparently the export of the aurplua
by tbeae two countries la uaed not
ao muoh as a profit making buslnesa but for the purpose ot trade
at any price. Thla situation la being, however, helped to a considerable extent by tbe advertising program Instituted laat year by tbe
Federal Oovernment of Canada.
The future of the Industry will
depend upon the oara given to the
protection of the aeveral euppllee
of flsh, and the euoeeaa with whieh
the Induatry meeta any competition
In foreign marketa. The flrat problem le that for the Federal Depart*
ment of Plaheriea which maintains
In Britiah Columbia a well organised protective stsff, consisting of
numerous Inspectors, guardians and
patrolman and boats, governed by
th* Intensity of fishing operations.
For   iaatance,   at   the   height   ot
aome recent aeaaona, there have
been aa many aa tour hundred and
fifty employeea engaged by tbe department In looking after the flsh-
erles of the province. In addition
two ateel trawlera, one with a six-
pound gun, have been employed,
particularly for protecting Canadian harbors from foreign boats,
guarding the fur seal herd past tbe
shores of Britiah Columbia on their
way to the rookery at the Prtblloft
Islands, and the enforcement ot tbe
International Halibut regulatlona
off the coaat of the province. Alao
during the buay aalmon aeaaon it
la usual to charter from eighty to
one hundred and ten power boats
to augment the fleet of twenty-two
departmentally owned. This force,
together with the assistance of
three seaplanes. Is what the Department of Fisheries depends upon for
the proper protection of the coaat
Th* difficulties encountered In
the way of taking care of future
supplies, particularly of the valuable rune of aalmon, Include the
drying of streams due to deforests-
tion, the construction of power
dame In Important atreama, elides,
beaver dams, log Jama, pollution,
Intensive fishing, and numerous
other factors. Theae problems are
met with the aaalatance of an engineering staff, for the purpose of
building flahwaya paat obatruotlona,
clearing othera and generally de-
vlalng means of keeping salmon
strsams frse to the passage of sal-
men to their spawning grounds
whieh may be hundreds of miles

Industrial Articles. Compiled
by Pacific PubUskers limited.
Another method of taking care of
the supplies ls the enforcement ot
closed periods during which no
fishing Is permitted. Also tbe clos-
ing of certain areas from time to
time tor the purpose of rehabilitation. These measures are definitely
for the purpose of reducing tbe
catch In these particular areas in
order to allow a greater supply ot
flsh to-go to the spawning grounds
to ensure a good future supply. The
small packs resulting at times, due
to these precautions, are often erroneously acoepted by the public as
an indication ot depletion, whereas
It is really evidence ot Departmental efforts towards conservation.
If the present efficiency of the
protection service can be maintained, and there is no reason why It
should not, there should be no apprehension regarding the supplies
of flsh In the future.

(From the Toronto "Varsity.")
The porpoise is a wonderful animal.   It is a creature of the sea
that spends ita life in sailing merrily up and down the gulf stream.
Now the wonderful thing about
a porpoise is its brain, which is developed to an astonishingly high
degree. And, if we are to judge by
its intricate convolutions, we must
conclude that the brain of the porpoise is superior to that of man.
To ua who occupy ouraelve* with
the most complex forms of work
and  play,  it seema fantastic that
a creature of superior brain power
ahould not utilise it better than by
swimming   about   in   nice   warm
ocean currents.   But it ia really ao
fantastic?    The    porpoiae    enjoys
himself as he drifts in   the   gulf
atream. Life ia relatively simple for
him.   We can think only that the
porpoise  is  either  utterly  foolish
or very wiae in apendlng hia time
in enjoyment ao apparently useless.
Ot  course many   clever   people
will immediately condemn the porpoise.   For example, there are the
paeudo-sophisticates    who    are   ao
much  with us  in  modern  society.
Theirs  ia  a facile  philoaophy  depending on youth, a hard glittering
exterior and an untried cynictam.
Such individuals   may   think that
they have attained the quintessence
of wisdom, which la at the aame
time modern, and that awimming
in the gulf atream la certainly a
atupid  form  of amusement when
one has the braina to devise more
elaborate and exciting recreation.
The moralists will object to the
obvious misuse of intelligence on
the part of the porpoiae. Theae will
advocate aervice; aervice to humanity, to acience, and to good honest
Induatry.   There are other people,
juat aa moral who will condemn the
flippant attitude of the   porpoise.
After all, life ia not one long recreation; life i* serious, life is earnest,
and there is a Purpose to it.

Last Loop Tilt
At Varsity Gym
Right in the thick of the closest
Intercity hoop battle for playoff
slots, Varsity's favored Thunderbirds tackle the lowly Adanacs
Wednesday night at the Point Grey
gym in what promises to be the
super-climax of the hottest league
race In yeara.
After coming through In typical
•tyl* againat th* mighty Munroa
on Saturday night, the atudante
need Juat thla one viotory to aa-
aur* them of a playoff apot, and
although the Men of Maury are
confidant of taking the Adanacs
Into camp, fana are atlll thinking
of tha laat defeat hung en the
Point Qrey aggregation by the
fighting New Westminster outfit.
But the Studenta are definitely
out of their mld-aaaaon alump and
nothing abort of the Harlem
Globe Trottera can keep them
from that playoff apot.
Pat Flynn, who by aome odd
quirk of fate ls now eligible to do
or die for the Blue and Gold, gives
the stock of the Thunderbirds a
very definite boost and what with
Joe Pringle back to his old-time
form and Bud Matheson finding the
basket with' monotonous regularity,
the Canadian Champs are In fine
shape to take up the gauntlet in
defence of their trophy. The Adanacs are the first victims on the
long trail that leads to fame and
glory and the 'Birds can take no
chances in this important battle.
The preaent league la tied up
cloaar than a drum, with Weat-
erna and Varaity tied for flrat
place two pointe ahead of Staoya.
If the Studenta come through
with their promlaed victory tomorrow night againat the old rl-
vala from the Queen City, they
will enter th* playoff* along with
th* atrong Woatarn and Stacy
The cheerful countenance you
see above is that of Brud Matheson, who led the Thunderbirds
to a one-point victory over
Munros Saturday night. With
the win cinching the 'Bird's
berth in the playoffs, it is no
winder that Brud is smiling. In
fact, he "is happy about the
whole thing."
Badmintoners Beaten
University shuttle artists failed
to click in the recent B. C. tourney
in Victoria, dropping out ot every
draw before the semis were reached.
Janet Fleck, Betty Fleck, Alex
McDonald and Ruth Seldon were
the Collegiate badmintoners who
made the Journey ln a vain attempt
to wrest titles from  Island  stars.
According to reliable aouroee,
Varaity hoop aupportera have
booed when oppoalng playera are
attempting  free  throws.
Since thla la not aporteman-
Ilka, nor doaa It advance Unlveralty Interests or Ideala In the
ayea of other apectatore, there
haa bean a general plea on the
part of tho College eagere to aak
thoae peraona, however fine their
Intentions may be, to refrain
from booing at theae tlmea.
The baaketball club, aa well aa
the reat of tha atudent aupportera thank you for your consideration.

Brud Matheson
Stars In .Fray
The Varsity senior cagers kept a
stranglehold on first slot ln the
Intercity loop when they managed
to eke out a one-point victory over
Munros In a fast and turloua tilt at
V.A.C.  gym  Saturday  night.
By virtue of their win over
Ryeraon, Weeterna are tied with
tha Studenta and Staoy'a mrm a
aeant two pointa behind the lead-
The Thunderbirda had an edge
on the play for most of the game,
holding a seven-point lead by the
middle of the last quarter, but the
fighting Furrlera ataged a last-minute rally to push up within one
point ot the collegians before the
final whistle.
In th* opening quarter, the
'Birds atartad a amart paaalng attack that netted them a five-point
margin by th* end of the period.
The Furmen quickly atammed the
tide, and led by Bill MoLaehlan,
found the hoop five times without
a reply from the student* to load
14-12 at the half.
The Thunderbirds got going
again after the breather and, chiefly due to the dead-eye sniping of
Brud Matheson, they walked away
from the Munro squad, to lead by
eight points at the three-quarter
The Collegians held their advantage till midway through the last
period, when Helem broke through
the Student defence to drop in a
brace of baskets and come within
one point of tying up the count.
Varsity managed to stem the tide
and held off the Furmen to emerge
on the right side of the 27-28 count.
Brud Matheson was the mainstay
ot the Varsity offense, tallying nine
markers, while "Joe" Pringle furnished some brilliant defenae work
ln holding off the Furmen ln the
closing minutes of the game.
Helem led the Munro squad with
ten markers.

First  And   Second   Division   Ruggers   Will   Meet
In Grudge Tilt Wednesday Afternoon At Stadium
The inspired showing of a Rookie
Thunderbird XV which came out
of comparative oblivion to carry on
the Blue and Gold tradition in a
hectic Tlsdall Cup series has caused Captain Dobbie and his brain
trust to think hard concerning the
squad to represent U.B.C. ln the
coming McKechnie Cup tilt with
Vancouver Saturday week.
Tha "Thunderllnga," aa they
were Jokingly oalled, though
they were promoted merely to
gain experience In readineaa, for
next aeaaon, have more than one
of their number Juat about ready
to atep Into aenlor warfare right
away. It ia Captain Dobbie'a problem to deoide whether any of the
regular Thunderbirda deaerve to
loae their plaeea to the up-and-
coming youngatere.
While pondering over the best
method of putting an unbeatable
campus team in the field, the idea
of a Grudge Game occurred to one
of the numerous managers, and
presto, the brainwave was adopted.
The   erstwhile   Second   Divlsioners,
having   been   sacrificed   to   Rowing
Club and other top-flight teams and
having emerged with flying colors,
are   quite   confident   that  they  can
give the powerful Thunderbirds the
battle of the year, while Dave Carey  and   Johnny  Bird  and   their  famous   cohorts   are   just   dying   to
prove   to   campus   fans   that   they
have lost none of their old Are.
In faot it ia the opportunity that
both theae teama have been waiting for. The Flret Team all agree
that they've had enough of watch-
ing   the   upatart   Second*   go   out
and  ateal  all  the  glory,  and  be-
aidea, aa Howie McPhee aald the

on record as saying that every
member of both teams has just got
to be on hand as nearly every place
on the team to play the Reps Is
wide open. A large student audience is expected to drift over to
the Stadium after lecturea on Wednesday afternoon to see a worthy

Almost Out of Tisdall Race;
Bill Lea Leads Pals to 8-3 Win
Varaity'a Rookie Thunderbirda leat a great chance to keep In
tha race for tha Tladall trophy at Lower Brockton on Saturday
when they bowed to thalr old rlvala, Oecaalonala, by a More of S-B.
With the never-say-dle All-Blacka toppling New Weatmlnater,
and Meralomaa reglaterlng a win over Rowing Club, a win fer the
atudenta would have left them In a tie for flrat place. Aa It waa,
with two Blue and Qold cenverelona mleaed, the fighting Qrada war*
fortunate to eome out on top.
A driving East wind which threatened to aaaume gale force greeted
the collegians early ln the first
half. Despite the fact that kicking was just tbat much effort wasted, the campusmen aoon got in scoring position, with big Art Depttord
struggling over the line. The convert was missed, and the Occasionals found themselves facing a 3-0

Down 6-3, the Thunderbirds stormed back into Grad territory and

the Qrada ahead 3-6.
The second half play was dominated by the Thunderbird three line,
as time and again Waddy Robertson or Cunningham had their drives
repulsed when well within striking
distance of a try.
The loss of Ted Madeley, 20 minutes before time, through a kick
in the back, left the Varsity pack
weak, but the Thunderbird back-
field kept forcing the play and only
sporadic bursts by Calland and
Covernton kept the Occasionals in
the battle. However, the Btudent
thrusts could not break through
and the final whistle came, giving
the Grads their flrBt Tisdall victory.

with  a girl that lisped.
Hank—What's that got to do with
