P.D.C. TABLES
RACIAL BILL
At a general meeting yesterday
noon the Political Discussions Club
debated the "Racial Minorities Bill"
which had been read for the flrst
time at the previous meeting.
First apeaker was leader ot the
Oovernment, Don McOill, who advocated that the House disallow
further penetration of Japanese into Canadain business and economic
life.
In a somewhat heated discussion,
the opposition contended that tbe
importance of the Oriental situation in Canada was exaggerated,
and moved an amendment modifying the Bill.
INTER-MARRIAGE  FAILURE
Bob Hayman, second speaker for
the Oovernment, pointed out that
in view ot the failure ot inter-mar-
rlage between Orientals and Canadians, proper racial assimilation
was an impossibility. He recommended the refusal of further immigration.
Due to lack of time, the flrat section of the Bill was tabled, the discussion to be renewed at the next
meeting.

TIM BUCK
TALK BAN
By GERALD CLARK
(By Canadian   University  Press)
MONTREAL,, Feb. 25—As a climax to a week of tensed activity at
McOill, it was announced here last
night that the Social Problems Club
has cancelled the proposed meeting of Tim Buck, Communist leader,
"In the interests ot unity on the
campus."
AGAINST PADLOCK  LAW
This move was made, executives
explained, to unify the two camps
split at a meeting of the Students'
Society Monday, in order to more
effectively combat the Quebec "Fad-
lock Law."
At the same time, Everette F.
Crutchlow, President ot the Students' Society, Indicated the controversy started Monday has not yet
ended when he summoned a special
meeting of the society to reconsider the motion passed by a majority
of five hundred students allowing
Buck use of the McOlll Union.
PETITION   CIRCULATED
Meanwhile an independent petition has been circulated on the
campus by opponents of Monday's
resolution demanding that "The
Students' Executive Council, acting
for the Students' Society of McOill
University, refuse to make available any of the facilities over which
it has jurisdiction for unlawful purposes."

Special  Alcove
For Gaul Cup
One of the neweat objecta of intereat on the campua la the Robert
Oaul Memorial Cup, established last
week in its alcove In the Library.
The cup la given In memory of
Bobby  Oaul, outstanding athlete
and   Big   Block   man   who   waa
killed three years age on a geological survey. Oaul was a fourth
year man and captain ef the rugby team.
The fund to buy the cup was
started by his admirers and family
who presented the memorial to the
University in 1936. It has been
placed ln a permanent position in
the Library in a special alcove designed by Sharp & Thompson.
PRINOLE  WlnlNER
The alcove, to the right of the
main door of the building, is glassed ln and will be used exclusively
for this cup. Not yet finished, tbe
top of the alcove will be fitted
with a bronze covering, probably
next week.
The cup will be presented annually at tbe Alumni Banquet to the
best all-round athlete and scholar
of the year. For 1936 it was presented to Oeorge Pringle whose
name is now carved on the base.
Although not awarded last year
it is expected that the award will
be made this spring tor 1038.
PRESIDENTIAL
CANDIDATES
ACTIVE MEN
Close Race Is
Expected
With the period of wild rumors
regarding  Council   elections   over,
names of five men who will run for
the president's offlce appeared on
the campus Thursday as certainties.
These   men,   Malcolm   Brown,
Jack    Davis,    Alex    MacDonald,
Carson McGulre and Bob Smith
have indicated their intention to
enter the election for president.
Brown is well-known for his reorganisation of the L.S.E. and hla
council work the past year. Davis,
prealdent of the SMUS, has also
a reputation for performance on
the basketball floor.
ACTIVE CANDIDATES
MacDonald, as a leading U. B. C.
debater for several years ,has been
long connected with the Parliamentary Forum. McOuire's recent
work on the publicity campaign
committee, has established him as
one of the most thorough workers
in student affairs.
Smith has served on council the
past year as treasurer, and has
been custodian of Pass System
funds as well.
CLOSE RACE
All five prospective candidates
are active enough in campus affairs
to ensure that the election will be
closely contested.
Preferential voting tends to
make a close race anybody's race,
past experience in U.B.C. elections
has proved. This year, with a good
many well-defined issues before the
voters, interest in A.M.S. elections
should reach a new high.

A Glimpse At Other
Canadian Universities
U.B.C. students are asked by Dave Carey to make their
applications for N.F.C.U.S. Exchange Scholarships before
March 1st. Several students have already applied, and today
the Ubyssey presents an article by two exchange students
now at this university, Ardis Colbourne and J. Angus Mac-
Lean
Soph    Petition
Turned Down
Notwithstanding a petition signed
by 150 membera of Arts '40, Students Council ruled Monday night
that class parties may not be held
in the Spanish Orlll or Commodore
Cabaret.
These halls will be reserved only
for major social functions, Council
said, in standing behind its informal
decision of the week before.
PETITION CIRCULATED
Members of Arts '40, objecting
to the ruling which would force
their party out of a high-class down
town hall, circulated a petition
Monday, calling for a reversal of
Council's decision.
Arta '40 executive, however,
had evidently accepted the Council stand, and Monday handed In
a budget for a dance to be held in
the Alma Academy.
The petition and the executive's
budget were handed tn only a few
mlnutea apart.
Council claimed that before the
past few years, class parties had
always been confirmed to smaller
halls.   Councils recently have been
overlooking the rule, the Monday
the present group decided to tighten up regulations.
Major functions that can be
staged in the Commodore or Orill
include the Junior Prom, and Arts
and Science balls.
In talking with  U. B. C. students one is struck by their lack
of   information   regarding   other
Canadian  Universities.   Someone
has said that this lack of information is in direct proportion to
the cube of the university's distance east.   There  is  more than
a little truth in the statement.
To receive a panoramic vista of
campus   life   at   the   University   of
Alberta—to  glimpse  some   of   the
beauty   that   is   everywhere   about
one   need   only   turn   through   the
pages of the 1937 edition of "Evergreen and Gold."   There he will find
photographic  shots of the Medical
Building,  St.  Joseph's   College,   St.
Stephen'?   College   .the   University
Hospital,   the   Residences,   and  the
Arts   Building,  with   the   inspiring
motto, "quaecumque vera" inscribed
above its door.   Dignified, magnificent,    beautiful — the.    University
buildings will continue to do their
part in  inspiring the  search  after
"whatsoever things are true."
NATURAL SETTING
Set high above the wooded slopes
of the winding Saskatchewan River,
the University of Alberta stands in
a setting of ever-changing beauty
—In summer cloudless skies, unbelievably gorgeous sunsets, long
golden twilights—in winter, sparkling whiteness everywhere, and at
night  the  wierd   play   of  northern
lights across the sky.
However, one does not judge the
worth of a University solely by its
beauty—there are other and more
important matters of consideration.
There is, for instance, the question
of campus life. The University of
Alberta is fortunate in possessing
campus residences for, as a result,
the spirit of camaraderie is developed to the fullest degree. The
resident students dine en masse in
the gay and informal atmosphere
of the residence dining rooms. Their
Christmas banquet and dance is one
of the most delightful functions of
the year.
Campus activities are many and
varied. There are approximately
thirty clubs Including athletic
clubs. There is the Wauneita Society, into which every woman student is initiated in a wierdly impressive ceremony which takes
place at night among blazing bonfires. The Reception to Men Students, the flrst formal of the year,
is sponsored by this organization.
While the Dramatic and Philharmonic Societies make the most outstanding contributions to campus
entertainment, the Literary, Debating, and Philosophical Societies
contribute much that is worth while
in the way of instructive entertainment.

Technocrat Lecturer
Denounces Scientists
For Loose Thinking
Paul Sykes, at his third lecture
on Technocracy noon Wednesday
stated that Technocracy is unorthodox as regards the financial
tycoons' point of view, but it is
by no means "out of the picture."
The Technocrats garner their
conclusions from actual physical
facts while the present economists are "clotted up with a lot
of classical junk."
"Such men as Dr. Harry Cotnp-
ton and Dr. Oordon Shrum reveal
careless thinking when they say
that science is creating more
work than lt ls taking away," declared Sykes.
The New Deal was an attempt
to produce artificial methods of
rectifying the unemployment situation. Technocracy, on the other
hand, ls based on real physical
facts and actual statistics. Such
"crazy theories" as Social Credit,
and the Townoend Plan don't
take the whole facts ot the situation Into account, declared
Sykes.
Alpinist to Speak
"On Work of Famous
Climbers" at Institute
Saturday evening's lecture at the
Vancouver Institute is under the
auspices of the Alpine Club of
Canada, Vancouver Section. The
speaker will be Mr. Frank Smith,
and the topic "From Ararat to
Everest—.Mountaineering, Ancient
and Modern."
The lecture, beginning at 8.15 in
Arts 100, will be a review of notable mountain conquests, of the
work of famous climbers, and of
the elaborate organization of expeditions necessary for ascents of
remote and difficult peaks. An interesting feature of the lecture will
be a large number of slides.
Musical Society
Successful
Two  well-attended   performances
of the "Yeomen of the Guard" Wednesday and Thursday evening convinced Musical Society officials that
the 1938 production is another hit
that can be placed alongside a score
of equally fine shows of past years.
Highlighted    by   the   performance   ef   Prank   Patch   as   Jack
Point,   and   an   excellently   produced     aecond     aet,    "Yeomen"
scored     well,     rating     perhaps .
slightly    below    "Robin     Hoed"
largely  because  of fewer opportunities available for Interesting
Work in this year's show.
Direction waa acceptable, with
some flne work from the orchestra.
Dramatic work, always difficult to
handle with proper spirit in Ollbert
and Sullivan, waa Inclined to be
atift in some spots.
Enough mention cannot be made
of Patch's performance as the sad
at heart Jester who is revealed ln
his true light only In the climax.
Of the other Individual players
mention must be made of Catherine Washington who combined a
pleasing voice with some line acting, particularly in her flirting
scene.
Pleasant surprise of the evening fer those who witnessed re*
haaraala, waa the free and eaay
performance of Gordon Neal ae
Fairfax. Stiffness of attitude,
which this reviewer forecast ,
would spoil Naal'a part waa almost entirely absent from the
portrayal.
Oordon Heron and Bill Cameron
live up to their reputations, Heron
suffering slightly from not having
a part that gave htm a chance to
display his beBt work.
Willa Elliot, Mildred Twiss, and
Tatsuo Sanmlya rounded out the
cast of principals. As Elsie, Miss
Elliot did not at all times keep in
character. Her voice, however, except ln the higher registers made
up for what might have been lost
in the dramatic sequences.
Charles Knox, playing the role
of the lieutenant, showed promise
in one trio number, but aeemed nervous in his solo parts.
The   yeomen   might   have   done
well with a certain amount of training from officials ot tbe C.O.T.C. If
the readers are worrying about the
increasing military attitude of university  students — they need not
bother   themselves.     Our   yeomen,
at least thoae ot the Musical Society, have a lot to learn; In the military, if not the musical side of life.
First    act    was    uninteresting,
save for the exoellent entrance of
Willa Elliot and Frank Patch, the
anaulng  number,  and  tha  finale.
Otharwlae tha aot dragged, and a
number of bad allpa were apparent to the aotua obaerver.
Incidental   details,   scenery,   costumes,    and    make-up    were    well
handled.     Contrary   to   some   past
productions,  the  "Yeomen"   chorus
apparently   received   as   much   attention if not more, from the makeup room as the leading players.
Audiences this evening and Saturday should see a better show,
with a cast more cretain of themselves. The reviewer, for one, ls
confident that the Musical Society
will have reason to claim maintenance of their proud traditions when
the music of the "Yoomen" ls filed
away on the shelves in "207." —

COMMERCE CLUB
The atudent faculty clubs are all
very much alive. The Commerce
Club haa enjoyed the enviable reputation of being the most active or-
ganisation on the campus. The
Fencing Club, as yet very new, heralds the return of chivalry upon
the campua and the time ia foreseen when affairs of honor may
mean "swords at dawn" on the football grid.
The Unlveralty ts exceptionally
fortunate in the way of winter
sports.  It possesses its own covered skating rink where an excellent student orchestra Is In  attendance.   Sleighing parties are
frequent.
The students are decidedly  ski-
minded   and   ski   Alms,   talks   and
demonstrations     supplement     the
sport of thrills and spills and the
exhilarating hikes about the countryside.  The newcomer to Alberta,
unaccustomed   to   ita   brisk   tangy
air and a 2000-foot altitude, is particularly  sensitive to a marvelous
feeling of well-being.
Of the University's academic
standing little need be said. That
ahe ia ranked high among our Canadian universities ia sufficient evidence of her worth.
MARITIME VARSITIES
Now a word about the universities of the Marltlmes, with special
reference to Mount Allison. The
chief universities of the Maritimes
are: University of New Brunswick,
Mount Allison, Acadia, Dalhousie,
St. Father Xavier and Kings. Most
of them are residential colleges and
are at least a century old. As a
result they have much that is fine
in tradition and college spirit of
the better sort.
One or other of them, and in
some cases, all of them, give degrees in: Medicine, Dentistry, Divinity, Law, Commerce, Forestry,
Scientific Fishery, Arts, Science,
Home Economics, Music and Fine
Arts.
Mount Allison University is situated in Sackville, N.B., on the Tan-
tarmar Marshes, at the edge of the
Westcock   Hills.    The   surrounding
country   provides   the   setting   for
many of the poems of Charles G. D.
Roberts   and  the  novels   of   L.   A.
Cunningham.   The locality also has
many points of great historical interest, as this  was an  established
community a hundred years before
George  Vancouver  was born.
TRADITIONAL CLUB
The flrst institution on the campus, the Academy, was founded in
1830 by F. C. Allison, whose name
it bears. From this institution has
grown the Girls' School, the Commercial College and the University
as they are today.
The University  has an enroll
ment of about 500 students who
come chiefly front the nine provinces of Canada, Newfoundland,
Bermuda and the Eastern States.
Degrees are conferred  In  Arts,
Science,    Household    Economics,
Music, and Fine Arts. About 00%
of the students live in residence
with the result that they have a
line spirit of loyalty   for   their
Alma Mater, and a healthy attitude  of   good*fellowship   among
themselves.
The university is well equipped
with buildings, among them a fine
concert hall which seats 1800 people, a covered skating rink equipped with a fine sound system, and
a beautiful library built as a monument to the Mt. A. boys who gave
their lives in the South African and
Oreat Wars.
Oreat interest is taken in intercollegiate sport ( dramatics, music,
etc., and all the students are members of the Community Concert
Association.
BENEFICIAL
Judging from our own experience, no student could fail to benefit from an exchange, even if he
were to go from the best university
to the poorest. The universities involved have much to gain from the
plan. This is especially true of U.
B. C, as It is a young institution
and comparatively isolated from
other Canadian universities. Since
she is not well known in Eastern
Canada ,she has an opportunity to
profit by the advertisement which
the exchange student provides.
Accuracy, Reliability
ON very little more than the news bretight to us by the
great press services of the world are judgments formed
by individuals on the happenings and issues of the day . . .
and perhaps even the policies of nations are simply the mass
reaction to news. The Vancouver Sun is sensible of its
responsibilities as a free an<_Jndependent collector and interpreter of news, and aims to present not only the fullest news
service   possible,   but   also   the   most   accurate   and   reliable.

Aggies in front of the Field Husbandry Building the President issued a statement to the effect
that there must be no further disturbances and that all signs and
banners muat be removed from
University buildings.
The occasion for the recent
riots is the annual election for
Queen of the forthcoming Ice

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor, Ubyasey.
I emerge from my rustic peace
to protest vigorously against the
Impression given of our Aggie Barn
Dance by Aggie Joe last Friday.
It's well-nigh heartbreaking that
one of our own Aggies should unnecessarily and without Justification go to such palna to give our
funotion a bad name. He must be
very short of material and inspiration for his column.
Our dance, despite certain persistent and unfounded rumors and
accusations, 1 s generally aa respectable as any on the campus, not
excepting Hi-Jinx and the Triangle
Club.
Any irregularities that may occur are usually by students of other
faculties who have gathered wrong
Impressions from Just such reports
as Aggie Joe's and prepare themselves accordingly.
Aggies can and do enjoy themselves informally, but naturally and
cleanly. If anyone still doubts us,
and If he can manage to procure a
ticket, let him come and see.
AMERICAN
GIRLSJWIN
Inter • university debating has
been a feature of campus activity
during the past week, with both the
Literary and Parliamentary Forums meeting visiting American
teams.
Tuesday, Nelson Norman and
Joel Stein of Stanford University
met Don McTaggart and Don MoOill of U.B.C. in a non-decision debate.
Two co-eds from Unlveralty of
Washington defeated Mary Rendell
and Stella Brldgeman ot the Literary Forum ln a debate Wednesday noon on the merits of an Anglo-
American alliance.
Till then, I'm back to the barns.
'Tis time to milk Rosalind.

THE      UBYSSEY
Three
-_-______-
- ICtttfrarg Pag* -
Vita Nuova
The writer dreams of the Ideal of
Dante, ao long slnoe vanished—of
the bright colours of the courtly
women whloh have long alnoe
faded—the blue green eyea, the
arolden hair, and the body, ao
white, bealde whloh the daisies
appeared dark.
Beatrice and Beatrice—
Gone?
Say you have faded—
Melted in the morning mist—
Four petals faintly breathed.
Oh Beatrice! Oh rose I
What may a rose with right or
wrong?
You were glorious—
Sweet as a scented dream—
Say no more.
Here in the pale sun—
a shell.
Still is there a blue in waters,
A green in gress,
And the old stubble is golden
Though the daisies laugh
no more.
The tuna of a aummer'e day calls
to mind tha waya of Romance and
the landa of Faaria . . .
Must life be then,
Always a summer day—
The smell of hot roads—
And
somewhere
someone
Tinkling the Blue Danube
On a piano across the way;
Or else
in a languid lilt
"East o the sun and west o' the
moon."
Once by this sign—
Wild ways in  the world  rode
Oawain
—but now
Oh here we may never come to
Carcassonne
For we know no more the laughing
word—
Still   must   we   travel   through
this
land of sleeping men
Where dreams are strange,
. . . but these too have all faded
with their laughter and Joy leaving only the darkness of midnight
days, caught by the eye Just for
a moment ln the bright sunshine,
remain  ln  ghostly  outline.
And stranger than the dawn to
come,
This midnight—
When distant are the sounds
Of voices calling,
And of leaves falling.
Where   only   a   thousand   street
lamps
Send   up  their smoke
To blacken the floor of heaven.
And from the mist up returning,
Soft,   the   other faces  yearning.
The emptiness ot lite recalls the
tremendous prophecy of Oswald
Spengler's "Der Untertang dea
Abondlandes" . , .
For lot Have  I  not  heard the
oracle speak,
Not at Delphi nor at Delos,
But here
upon these shores
By these waters?
And   there  was  wailing  in  the
temple
And the smell of ashes—
For upon his brow pressed the
years,
And his eyes were as the eyes of
tired   children,
And he spake
and the word with him:
"Gone is the pulse of blood and
the spring,
Faded   the   twisted   faces   from
the faggots flame,
Dead is the horseman who fled
Through  the  midnight  mist.
No   more   in   the   starlight   the
thrust of spear,
In the long days only the gulls
and the lazy spume,
In the long night only the green
roots searching. .  . .
surge of the sea
surge of the sea."
. . . and these words ring in his
ears.
"Lo! there is tumuli in the land
And the banners are set free.
Lo! the Caesars have arisen—
'It  matters not what words are
screamed in the wind
Whin the gates are beaten down
And the skulls arc beaten in.'
Lo!    the    pavements   run   with
blood
And the temples are defiled,
The barren women scream
And   the   men   whose   loins   arc
weak  have fallen.
The  desert  shall  prevail,
For sand forgets.
And   tlie   grass   shall   heave   the
cobbles
In  the  empty carts.
The  stone  shall   crumble   in  the
■wind
and the sun
and the rain.
Perfect Wife
x.
They were lighting their after-dinner cigarettea when the telephone rang.
Ray dropped the match with an imperceptible atart and pushed back hia
chair,
"Dont bother, dear," aaid Lola. "I'll get it." She waa half-way to
the hall before he could atop her.
He aat on the edge of hla chair, tenae, liatened aa hia wife picked up
the receiver . . . impossible . , . Phyl would never phone here . . . and yet...
"... why—I gueaa so, Helen.    Hold the line and I '11 Bee if Ray ..."
He relaxed, took a long drag ou his cigarette. It was crazy to be bo
jumpy.    He mustn't—
Lola was in the doorway. '' Ray, dear,'' ahe said lightly, '' Helen Ridley and her sister want me to go to the State with them. Would you mind
being alone for a whilst"
Ray hesitated. In a way, he did mind. Her going out would give him
an excuse to rationaliae, to feel justified in what he waa doing. And he
didn't want that excuse—not really. He had been trying to beat this thing
for weeka now. Tonight, however, left to hlmaelf, he waan't aure that he
could beat it.    But the movie—he couldn't be unreaaonabe . . .
"I don't mind a bit," he aaaured her. Then, carefully, "You'll be
home around midnight t"
'' Uh-huh,'' ahe nodded, and turned back to the phone.
II.
When ahe had gone, Bay threw himself into the chair by the radio. For
some time he aat amoking, obllvioua to the blaring dance music. Phyl would
be in—probably waiting—but it waan't fair . . . neither to Phyllla nor hlmaelf . . . and leaat of all to Loia. It waa a rebound affair ... he and Lola
hadn't been getting along ao well . . . but lately. . . . He awitched off the
radio irritably.
He wandered aimleaaly about the houae. went Into the aoftly-llt bedroom. Hla dressing gown waa folded carefully on the bed, his slippers
beside it. She had filled the cigarette box on the table between the beds. Her
goodbye kiaa had been affectionate—warm . . . her whispered "I'll hurry
home" had been an intimate promise. . , .
Ray ground tbe cigarette deliberately into the ash-tray on the dreaalng
table.
III.
A half-hour later he waa preaalng a bell In a auburban apartment blook.
'' Ray darling I'' The young woman who opened the door embraced
him impulsively.
Ray evaded her kiaa and entered the apartment.
"Weill" Phyllla exclaimed.    "What'a wrong with youf"
"It had to come, Phyl, aooner or later." He remained atanding, hat
in hand, aa ahe moved toward the choaterfleld.   " I 've been a fool—''
She waa ailent for a moment.    Then, "It'a . . . Loiaf"
He nodded. '' I waa unhappy with her at flrat, Phyl—and I dldn 't care
what happened. Lately, though, ahe'a changed completely. It'a different,
don't you aeef She's doing her beat to get along—make a go of it, and I'm
going to co-operate.    Can't you understandf"
"Oh, certainly! I underatand—only too well I I waa juat a passing
fancy, and now that you are tired of me, you become the contrite husband!
You needn 't explain—I 'm juat the ' other woman,' getting the usual breaks.
But don't try to tell me that Lois is the only reason—you know as well aa
I do that ahe'a too dumb to ever suspect—"
"Don't be like that! Loia isn't dumb. She juat lovea me—too darned
much. She wanta to be the perfect wife. Think what you like, but I won't
kid her any longer.    You'll juat have to forget me aa quickly aa—"
"You needn't worry!" Phyllis cut ta. "I'll get along all right 1 Oo
back to her and live happily ever after! But don't try to aee me again!
I'm through! "
For a few moments they remained in uneasy silence. Finally Bay
turned to the door.
" I 'm sorry you took this attitude, Phyl. But there's nothing more to
say.    Goodbye." /
There was no answer.     Ho closed  the door  quietly behind  him. /
IV. '
'' That concludes our local news broadcast for tonight, folks. Tho correct time ls now ono mi unto past midnight.    This Is station—"
Ray   shut oft'  the  radio ns  the  front  door opened.
"Oh, Ray I Aro you still up?" Lois came in and kissed him. "Sorry
I 'in late, but after tlie show we had something to eat. I hope you weron 't
worried.''
Ray started to speak, then hesitated, and looked at his wife uncertainly.
Finally he answered her.
"Oh, no, sweetheart, I wasn't worried. Not a bit—" He stared at
her  for  a moment in  silence.     Then he asked  abruptly—
"How was the showf"
'' It was perfect. They always have such good pictures at the State.
What have you been doing!"
"Listening to tho radio, mostly. I turnod off the news program just
as you came in.''
"Any news I" Lois asked brightly.
Ray  gave  his  wife  a  penetrating  look.
'' There was only one item which would be of any Interest to you, my
dear,'' ho said steadily. '' You will bo very sorry to hear that the State
Theatre was burned to the ground at approximately half-past seven this
evening! "
Tarnkappe
Winged messenger of Odin,
clad in darkness,
shod with wind,—
Qver the sighing forests
and sullen waters
Speed swift on thy errand,
O child of the Night!
Now the deep thunder,
the strong torrent's spirit,
aid thee! ^
The strength of the North Wind,
the joy of the wave,
Speed thee on thy journey,
O child of the Night!
The    sword    will    rust    in    the
sheathe
And no man's hand shall move
it.
Only the plough in the furrow,
Only the ox in the field,
surge  of the sea
surge of the sea."
He dreads the thought of life so
depicted, and desires no longer to
question or to seek for knowledge
—but he knows that lt may not
bo  for   this  alone  is  life.
Oh   Beatrice! Beatrice!
I did  not  ask  that it shoidd be
so—
That far from the bourne of the
•infinite,
That in  the flood of time irreversible,
I should be placed here—
Here in  the pale sun,
by the broken pillar;
To write with water
upon pale china.
Oh! who will   walk   with   mc  in
Paradise. ?
Who   from   the   street   of   longhaired women?
How may this glitter-eyed harlot
This boyish bag of bones
Sometimes I think that I should
never speak,
Nor say  the   word,  no,  nor ask
the   question—•
But  though  I  stand  longing  to
feel
Only the sun
and the wind
and the rain
It  may  not be  till I have asked
the question.
Oh  Heat rice! Beatrice!
—Robert   npRobertn.
Spring Walks
This tranquil evening,
Spring walks in my garden .
And where her narrow foot
Treads  the  dew-degged  soil,
Gone is winter's bitterness.
And  now  slim flowers
Petal perfect from the womb,
Primroses' warm palour, violets'
Shy fragrance.   Contentment
Of mosses, green,  resilient.
Summer days!
And glinting summer suns come
With earth's circling—
Crimson roses against white  ....
Crimson     roses    .against    white
■walls
And a drifting shower of petals.
Winter gauntly
Skeletons the  garden.
Bronze    and    gold    of   swirling
leaves.
Fog of nights, wind of dawns . . .
But   yet,   snowdrops   under   old
oak trees.
And    then    —   Spring    walks
again!
To  touch   to fire  the  earth—
And sometimes, I shall see
In dreamlike April twilights.
Her   warmth.  Her  ecstasy.  Her
tears.
—Oeor^rianu  Wilson.
The   boughs   are   only   fringed
with green,
The orchard's waiting through
the spring,
Poised and expectant each tree
stands,
Hung in a magic quietness,
That not the strange blue air of
dusk
Nor sharp surprise of  blasting
dawn
Can wake the trees to common
life
Or stir them from their crystal
dream.
—Royce Butler.
Tune your pipes,
Phyllida, Phyllida
Where the stripes
cast by the sun
Across the green
Quietly run.
Today you are a queen
Phyllida, Phylhda.
Pearl shot through with rose
Silver, blue-veined
"An apple of gold, in a net
work of silver."
■ ■*
Pluck your lyre
Phyllida, Phyllida
Youth has fire;
But very soon
The velvet creeping
Of the moon
Will find thee weeping.
—Phyllida . . . Phyllida.
Mutations
Primordial slime—-
Oozing, shifting, bubbling . . .
Ghastly gray germ-guardian;
Sentient mud slowly sifting,
Purposeful eons of
This from that . . . for what?
Tin-clamor, turmoil of
Sparks, sivcat; BABEL . . .
Tiny toy truck-trails ;
Senseless ego swift-scourging,
Purposeless- decades of
This and that . . . for what?
Omniscent Agency—
Hinting, coaxing, forcing .  . .
Laconic long love-leading;
Perpetrating procreation,
Motivated by
This or that . . . for what?
The life-wave surges toward unknown shores,
The meteor screams toward
space's rocky floors;
And human ego flees oblivion
With builded Gods of rusting,
transient tin.
Sea Litany
The  sea swung in a wide crescent
and foamed at its lips
lapping  the night shore,
above, the boughs soughed
while,  bleached  drift  wood
gleamed   white   in   the   cool   of
night-air.
A  lone  crane  stooped
soft in  the dimness
and picked  at  a   mussel
standing knee-deep
in the smooth mud of the shore.
Beyond the sedge bristled
and moaned in monotone.
Only the lone heart
Only the lone heart
heard the  night sob. . . .

Did you notice that there wasn't anyone in the caf at one o'clock
Thursday noon. Because the sunny day had drawn all the handsome men out
walking with all the pretty girls. Mow is tha time-that the gentlemen are
looking around for good looks, so you can't afford to look the least bit below
par.
Just for safety, why not dash down to the RUSSIAN DUCHESS BEAUTY
SALON and have them give you a complete do-over. It improves you no end,
and you'd be amazed at how inexpensive it is. If you have the idea that
Russian Duchess is beyond your pocketbook just phone down to the salon and

New English spun silk will take the place of little linen and cotton
blouses this year. They come in pastel shades of turquoi-O, pink, yellow and

Twelfth and Granville, because they're exactly what you want to brighten up
the outfit that you've been wearing all winter, but can't cast off yet a while.
Priced at $2.50 and $2.98, they come in tailored styles that are very
easy  to  launder.

So you ought to dash downtown right away and see the spring shoe styles at

As a result of the realization gabardine and punched leather have taken the
fore  in materials for your new footwear.
Colors are going to be ever so bright—especially the popular rust that
looks especially smart with either blue or brown shades of ensembles. See

When you get inside it's even more Bohemian looking, with candlelight
and flickering from queer-shaped bottles. And that's not all, the cooking is
simply scrumptuous. It's a tremendously good idea for dinner before the

TEA DANCE TO
FOLLOW CUP
CEREMONY
The Rugger classic of the season, that will decide the destiny of
the battered old McKechnie Cup for
the coming year, will hold the spotlight on the campus Saturday, when
the U.B.C. Thunderbirds entertain
a strong Vancouver Rep Bide in the
stadium at 2.45 p.m,
A splendid rugger pageant, rivalled  only  by  the  celebrations
that marked the Stadium opening
last fall, will  keep student spectators engrossed  frem  the  start
cf the Pep Meet featuring Johnny  Matthews and  hie orchestra,
through  a torrid, epic battle en
the   Stadium   Turf,   and   a   Tea
Dance  at the   Oym   Immediately
following the presentation of the
Oup  to  the  winning  skipper  by
Chancellor McKechnie himself.
The   game,   which   is   the  tidbit
rugby fans far and wide have been
waiting for, will see two ot the most
evenly  matched  aides ever to do
battle for the precious old trophy,
trot out and prime themselves for
the epic battle.
Dally practice sessions, which the
Thunderbirds have been undergoing beneath the eagle optlo ot
Coach Dobbie, have given the gris-
■led rugger mentor plenty to ponder over before announcing the
■quad to carry the Blue and Oold
to what he hopes will be a brilliant
Varsity triumph.
NEW PIRSTS
Approximately twenty Thunderbird  hopefuls, ordered  to  report
to   practice,   received   a  taste  ef
whst   a   real   workout   Is   while
striving to deliver the goeda auf-
flelent   to   mature   themselves   a
berth for the Saturday eple.    To
three   former   Thunderbirda,   the
brilliant ahowing  of the  Second
Team  In tha  Tladall  Cup Sarlaa
has   Indirectly   proved   a   nightmare.     Which,   being, tranalatad,
la atmply another way of aaylng
that Waddle Robertaon, Art Deptford and RanJI Mattu have shown
the   etuff   to    make    themselvoa
Thunderbirda   overnight    Instead
of   Ernie  Teagle,   Craig   McPhee
and  Tommy   Robson.
Waddle Robertson, a faat tricky
three-quarter     with     an     uncanny
knack of whipping through  defensive systems, will fill the left wing
three-quarter spot, while both Deptford   and    Mattu   will   bolster   the
ranks of the pack.
A light practice session yesterday
gave Coach Dobbie an opportunity
to straighten out some minor difficulties in the forwards and accustom the newcomers to playing
alongside their new mates.

ROWERS GOING TO SEATTLE
FOR INTERCOLLEGIATE MEET
Clubbers to Meet Washington And Oregon
March 3rd
"It won't be long now," is the
triumphant cry of the ambitious
Varsity Rowing Club who have just
completed arrangements for an invasion of Seattle to participate in
a three-way intercollegiate meet in
the Sound City Saturday, March
5th.
Thursday, March 3rd . . . yes,
the night of the Co-ed . . . will
see a large contingent of Blue
and Gold oar-wielders embark on
their long-awaited jaunt to test
their pulling power against 8-oar
crews from the Universities of
Washington and Oregon. Two
crews will be making the trip, the
first to do battle and the second
to watch their rowing brethren
and pick up a few pointers which
they may find useful when they
tackle    the    Vancouver    Rowing
Club second crew March 19th.
CHANGE IN LINE-UP
Only one change will be made in
the Blue and Gold line-up, including Gordon at No. 6 in place of
Bennett, who formerly held down
that slot. All the boys from Pearce
at stroke to diminutive Mike
Churchill in the coxswain's seat,
are in tip-top shape and just rarin'
to swamp their foes in Blue and
Gold backwash.
Coach Frank Wilson in an effort to secure good results from
his stalwart crew, is reported to
be laying more emphasis on the
little matter of brawn and muscle
than the previous policy of developing a perfect style which
has been proved to be a somewhat unsatisfactory policy in the
past.

ALL SET FOR
REVENGE WIN
Tonight at eight thirty. This has
nothing to do with the play, but ls
merely the high-flying Thunderbird
puck chasers will tangle with the

a revenge win over the Spokane imports.
NO  LOVE  LOST

SCORING PUNCH  REGAINED
After a roueing practice on Wedneaday night when the  pepped-up
pucksters powered eight goals past
a bewildered Dutnont Electric sextet,   coach   Johnny   Owens   stated
that lt looked like the boya were
out   of   their   sooring   slump   and
should   click   on   all   six   cylinders
Friday nigbt.    The team will be intact for the fray except for a black
eye   to   Jim   Ussher,   which   won't
stop this smooth winger from getting his sights on the cage corners.

STACY'S TO WIN FINAL BYE
Brud Matheson Stars In Fast Hoop Tilt;
Westerns, Stacy's to Play Off.
Playing consistently good although not spectacular, basketball,
the Varsity cagers downed Staeys
43-8S Tuesday night at the V.A.C.
gym, to cop the coveted bye into
the Intercity finals.
The game .though It lacked the
color and thrills of the Munro*
Western opener, clearly demon*
strated that the Thunderbirds are
still tops in the local loop and
are heads-up favorites to take the
Intercity championship.
LAST HALF DRIVE
Their elastic zone defence, which
the Shoemen were able to breeze
through earlier in the season, ia
now functioning almost perfectly
and, what is more important, they
have at last developed the last
half drive that won them many
close tilts laat year.
With Westerns and Staeys left
to fight it out for the right to meet
Varsity, the Thunderbirds' next
game will probably be a week from
Saturday.
LEAD AT HALF
The Collegians got down to
business early in the flrst stansa
and, breaking through the Stacy
defence with fast passing attacks,
piled  up a  7-point lead by  the
middle of the period.   However,"
just before the breather, Purree
long shots to  cut the Thunder-
and Bumstead dropped ln three
birds' margin to one marker.
Opening the second frame with
four baskets, the students built up
a  comfortable  lead that waa  not
threatened until  the last quarter,
chiefly due to Armstrong's accurate  sniping from way out, when
the  Shoemen pulled up to within
four points of the leaders.  At thia
point Brud Matheson came through
with a brace of sitters to cinch the
game for the studes.
Brud was the standout for the
Varsity squad, tallying 4 points,
followed by Rann Matthison with 8.
