Issued Twice Weekly by the Students9 Publications Board of The University of British Columbia
No. 2
Governors Appoint U.B.C.
Representative  To McGill
At a regular meeting on Monday night in the Administration Building on the Campus, University Board of Governors
discussed a number of important matters.
(1) The Board approved English 2 and Philosophy 9 as
the two courses to be given at the University as extra-sessional
(2) Accepted the gift of $200 from the Summer Session
Students' Association, to be used for the purchase of library
books for the use of students taking directed reading courses.
(3) Appointed Dr. J. D. MacLean, M.D.,C.M.,L.L.D. as
U.B.C. representative at the installation of Arthur E. Morgan,
M.A. as principal and vice-chancellor of McGill University on
October 5.
(4) Discussed the matter of limitation in certain classes at
the University, owing to the fact that Second Year Applied Science and First Year Nursing Classes have exceeded previous
set limits.
Total registration for the 1935-36 sessions as announced following the meeting is 1848, up to September 30.
The Board was unable to proceed with the discussion of the
proposed extension of noon recess from one hour to an hour
and a half, .and with the appintment of an athletic director, because no definite information has been forwarded to the Board
from Students' Council.
A special meeting of the Board will be held on Friday night
to discuss estimates for the ensuing year.
Japan Students
Conference At
Reed College
Through tho rfforts of the Japanese
Students' Club and the financial assistance of the Jripan Society of Vancouver, two ttudcnts of this University officially represented the University of British Columbia at the Second Japan-American Students' Conference held July 29 to August 4 at
Reed College, Portland, Oregon.
At this gathering a picked delegation of 46 students from Japan, 79
American and 6 Canadian students
discussed varions problems of the Pacific. The round table discussions
were divided into five commissions
dealing with international, political,
religious, philosophical, cultural and
educational problems.
Five lectures were given on the
first commission:
"Japanese-American Trade Relations," Dr. V. P. Morris, professor of
economics, University of Oregon.
"The Japanese-American Naval
Problem," Dr. Linden A. Mander, professor of political science, University
of Washington.
"Japan's Mission in the Far East,"
Dr. Yamato Ichihashi, professor of
Japanese History and Government,
Stanford University.
"The Place ot America and Japan
in the Pacific" Professor Kojiro Sug-
imori, Waseda University.
"Possibilities cf Improving Amer-
can-Japanese Relations," Dr. K. S.
Latourette, professor Oriental History,
Yale University,
George Hori, head of the Canadian
Delegation, led a discussion of the
Political group on "The Second Generation Question in United States and
Lionel Clarke, a student in Economics of the U.B.C, read a paper entiled "A Trade War Between Japan
and Canada?", to the Commission on
Economical problems.
At the final Assembly, leaders of
the various commissions presented
brief summaries.
The notes taken at the various commissions together with the addresses
and lectures delivered at the conference are to be published in the report of the second Japan-America
Student  Conference.
Thus, it was felt that the student
conference, in spite of its scholastic
nature, had accomplished something
towards amity and international
good-will by frank discussion and
mutual confidence.
The Students Council gives
notice to the Frosh that the
Frosh Reception takes place
October 10 instead of October
11, It will be in the Embassy
Ballroom, Davie Street, just
west of  Burrard.
Open Forum
Breaks In
New Talent
On Tuesday, October 8, at 7:30 p.m.
the first meeting of the Parliamentary Forum will be held in Arts 100.
All meetings of this organization
are open and are held every second
Tuesday evening.
The Forum is modelled on the Oxford Union, the most famous debating society in the world, a society
which trained, ir. their early years,
such men is Campbell-Bannerman
and Gladstone.
Tho procedure; of the U.B.C. Forum
is as follows: the two leaders for
the evening speak first, delivering
prepared speeches, one for each side
of the question. The meeting is then
open—anyone and everyone has their
Order is maintained, by the benign
but sometimes disciplinary "Father of
the Forum," Prof. J. Friend Day,
who occupies the chair at all meetings.
The function of the society is to
train would-be orators who have had
no experience, and to improve and
polish those who have already done
some public speaking.
One freshman, when asked whether he was going to join the forum,
said: "I have always wanted to learn
how to speak, but I've never done
any, and I'd be scared stiff to get
up before a lot of old hands in the
At the beginning of every year, at
least 70 percent at the meetings have
never ascended the platform in their
lives. Many a youthful orator has
started the year by gathering up courage to mumbb a few words at each
forum meeting, and finished up that
same year by being able to deliver
an intelligent and interesting speech
with no trace cf nervousness whatsoever,
The men and women who show
special aptitude in debating represent
U.B.C. at various debates away from
the Campus, al! exepnses being paid
by the Alma M;>ter Society,
During 1934-35, two U.B.C. men
were sent to Seattle to debate U. of
Washington, and two more went on
a tour as far as Leland-Standford
University at Palo Alto, Calif.
This fall a U.B.C. debater is going
on a trans-Canada tour as far as
Coaching and advice is supplied by
Prof. J. Friend Day, who devotes
gratuitously a g"eat deal of time in
helping the Forum and its members.
The Forum is for both men and
women, and corts nothing to join. It
demands of its members in the way
of time, one evening, a Tuesday,
every two weeks. It offers inexperienced men and women a chance to
learn to speak in public.
Morley Heads
Arts Men
An executive dedicated to the object of making the Artsmen's Undergrad one of the most active and efficient organizations on the campus,
was swept into office yesterday noon.
in a meeting deferred from last year.
With Alan P. Morley as president,
John George Hill as secretary, and
Ewart Hetherington as treasurer, the
new executive announces itself as
confident that it will be able to make
the Arts Ball ono of the biggest functions on ihe campus.
Nominees Cor the office of President were Morley and Hill, Morley
being elected by a wide margin. The
race for secretary was close, a recount being necessary. By virtue of
this second ballot, John George Hill,
nosed out Tom Vance, and secured
the office. Three men, Dave Lewis,
Ewart Hetherington, and Tom Vance,
were nominated for treasurer, Hetherington gaining the position.
Last year's innovation, the "pep
committee", was retained, its members to be appointed by the new executive.
It was announced that the Arts' Ball
would be held either on Oct. 30 or
on Nov. 1. The new president urged
all Artsmen to support this function.
Artsmen havo been asked to take
part in the "Open House" this year,
and the A.M.U.S. is expected to do
its share in th>.
"It is about time the Artsmen's
Undergrad. Society was hauled out
of the n.ora3s," Mr. Morley said, following his election. "It should work
toward the standard set by the Sciencemen in p'lot years."

Million Cards
Study Tool
Of Great Value
Ry Dorwin Baird
The Depository Catalogue of the
Library of Congress, now being installed in our own Library, was offered to this University in 1915, but
we were then unable to afford the
■expense of hiinging the necessary
equipment hero. This fact was mentioned by John Ridington, Librarian,
when he told mc the interesting history of this reference catalogue.
Being more or less of a skeptic, I
just couldn't see what good four tons
of cards, describing books that were
halfway across the continent in
Washington, could be to this University. It took Mr. Ridington the
better part of an hour to convince
me that this f.ddition to our Library
was of almost inestimatable importance.
The Catalogue was established in
Washington more than thirty years
ago. Every book In the Library of
Congress Is represented by a card,
compiled by an expert. n A new, book
on Physics receives the attention of
a member of ths cataloging staff with
particular knowledge in Physics.
Now it is eosy to see that a great
many libraries all  over the country
are the Engineers." And then two could be sawd a lot of time and
floods of "Dirty old Frosh" and ! money if the/ could use duplicate
"Dirty old Soph" would meet in mid j cards for their new books.
The dear, lead days beyond recall!
This is the dunking of Arts '38—At
least Freshmen took baths then.
Suddenly th-3 gallery was emptying
itself ai.d a lone snake appeared at
the Auditorium door and wound itself down the a'sles. Tho asbestos
curtain was quickly dropped and the
decapitated rerpent writhed in in-
inglorious death throes in the aisle.
By this simple act of heroism an
impending Frosh-Soph fracas was
nipped in the bud.
Quickly order was restored. And
the Auditorium purred with reverberations of "Kla-how-Ya's" and
"Here's to good old Beer."
Announcements were given out
concerning Initiation activities:
October 1, Tuesday noon, Cairn
October 8, Frosh Smoker.
October 9, Post Depression Starvation Dance.
October 8, Vaisity vs. V.A.C. evening football match.
October 10, Frosh  Reception.
Owing to a change ln editorial policy, Class and Club notices
will be restricted to 6 lines in the future. Time and place of meeting
only will be accepted. To supplement the notices a series of short
articles on the history and purpose of each club is being printed. The
first appears on this page today. The series is being arranged by Jay
Gould, to whom clubs should apply for Inclusion.

General Hospital New Nurses Home,

To bring ,'t closer to home—when
this University Library gets a new
book they send the title and author
to Washington, and in seventy percent of the cas,?s the book has been
classified there. A copy of the card
is sent to U.B.C, and is placed in
our own card catalogue.
The saving that this effects in
thousands of Libraries mounts into
the thousands yearly, and, what is
more important, the classification
done in Washington is much more
efficient than that that would be
done in local cirtres.
The Librarian at «the Library of
Congress discovered about twenty
years ago that ir<any Students all over
the country wero travelling to Washington to consult the general catalogue there which contained all the
cards printed.
To save the tiouble and expense to
students it was decided to place duplicate catalogues all over the United
States. Thus anvone desiring to obtain a bibliography on a subject
could get it without journeying to
the Library of Congress. Forty-eight
of .these catalogues were placed
throughout thj country—usually in
University libraries.
Today sets of cards can be found
in eighteen cities outside of the United States. Such places as London,
Rome, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo being
chosen for ths honor.
In Canada, tnere are three Universities with duplicate catalogues.
They art McGill, Toronto, and U.B.C,
making this University Library the
most   useful   in  Western  Canada.
"We have every right to be proud
of the honor and responsibility conferred on us," said Mr. Rldington
"For it is a great responsibility. The
cost of the cabinets, which are up to
date and serviceable, was $4500, with
an additional expense of a dollar for
every  thousand  cards."
"The Board of Gowrnors has voted
us sufficient to install the cabinets
and place cards until March, 1936.
The latter wot-': is under the immediate supervision of Miss Mary Barton, who will have a student staff
helping her. A few thousand cards
are already placed. New ones are
arriving at the rate of about 50,000
The Librarian then took me to see
the stacks of cases containing the
l,350,00d cards still to be placed. These
cards represent the very best books
in the English language, plus selected
works in all tongues.
Officials Debate
Biologic Urge
After the usu.i' orgy and dissipation in tho Kaf last niyii*. the Council stagcered to the'r loir, to meditate and p:v.y <>;i the pioblcms of
their Alma Mainmy.
Ralph Killooi ••p.-M .1 the meeting
with a motion that the President
kindly be appointed to pa3 around
some nutches, p!iz, and then spent
the remainder of the evening blowing perfect smoke rings, interspersed with deep and solemn platitudes,
The Frosh Reception, it was decreed, will be held at the Embassy
on October 19 from 9 to 1 pm., admission to be free for Frosh, and 50
cents for others.
In order to save the floor, the
Smoker will not be held in the Gym.
Plans include tiie usual clay pipes,
cider and wrestling. Male fan dancers are also contemplated. A team,
composed of Doc Sedgewich and Dodie Brown will be offered the engagement.
A minor sensation was created
when the secretary, Darrel Gomery,
read n letter from the Ford Motor
Co. requesting that they be allowed
to show two films in the Auditorium,
"Little Red Hiding Hood" and
"Honeymoon in a Ford V-8".
Gould:  "This sounds spicy."
Brynelsen: "It's fctdly BV.urclonal
in a way."
Gould:   "And  how!"
Killam: "Shouldn't we refer it to
the Pep Club?"
Gould: "Or the biology department?"
In the end die offer was rejected,
due to the unusually heavy program
for the coming season.
Many bright and shining faces were
welcomed to the University at the
W.U.S. meeting on Friday. These
beaming countenances were of course
the freshettes minus makeup.
After welcoming them, Ardy Beaumont, president, introduced the other
members of the executive: Honorary
President Miss Bollert, Vice President Betty White, Secretary Pauline
Patterson, and Treasurer Kay Scott,
President N.U.S. Ethel Rolston, President Phrateres Audrey Horwood,
and the presidents of the classes —
Kay Bourne, Madeleine Bowden and
Peggy Fox.
Following this introduction the
Frosh program was outlined as follows:
Sept. 29—Fireside Evening.
Oct. 1—Cairn Ceremony  (noon),
Oct. 2—Senior Freshette tea (gym.)
Oct. 8—Freshette supper, 6 p.m. in
Oct. 9—Starvation Dance  (gym.).
Oct. 10—Froih Reception.
Speeches of welcome by Miss Bollert and Audrey Horwood brought the
meeting to a dose.

Those who know the Pub. of old may consider it faintly ironic that a plea for tidiness
should issue from this office. For the place is
traditionally a shambles, with the walls one
vast mural of vulgar art and the floor a tangled
mass of paper, crockery and, from all accounts
the bodies of distraught editors.
But today this precinct's walls are blank
and unsullied as a freshman's mind. Let the
unbeliever see for himself. Unfortunately the
rest of the campus has not evidenced a similar revolution.
We were recently told that during a motor
trip of twelve thousand miles over America as
much litter was not discernable on the whole
journey as may be seen on a walk between the
Auditorium and the Library.
The professor who remarked this was, you
will think, a trifle inaccurate But you get his
As will be noted elsewhere in this issue,
Class and Club notices are being cut down.
There is more than one reason for this.
First, we are trying to improve the UBYSSEY. Long, rambling, pqintless notices are
NOT news. We don't want them.
Reports of meetings with the same qualities will not be received, for the same reason. If you have news of your club, bring it
in. If it is propaganda, shove it in the waste-
Also, bring it in typewritten, according to
the instructions on the Pub. notice board. We
are a newspaper (such as we are), not a public stenographer.
In future all such sloppy, handwritten copy
goes into our wastebastket. Save us the
trouble of putting it there.
Single-spaced, wrong-way-of-the-paper, typ-
ed-on-both-sides copy goes there too.
A senior editor's life is too short to spend
it deciphering hyroglyphics and chasing up
charitable re-write artists to assist illiterate
Cut it short!
A wise Council last year passed an ordinance requiring all fraternities and sororities
to have the dates of their functions ratified by
the Students' Council before they are definitely
This year's Council is going to carry out the
provisions of that ordinance.
It is high time that it was done.
More than one major Varsity function has
been bled of attendance because an inconsiderate Frat selected a clashing date for a formal
or a cabaret. Last year's Arts-Aggie Ball was
a case in point.
Happy faces decorate our Kaf.
Mr. Underhill overflows with the milk of
human kindness.
Dixie and Betty smile all over their front
Even the patrons look pleased.
The secret of this sudden influx of sweetness
and light into our auditorium dungeon is—a
brand new electric dishwasher.
Thus do the benefits of modern science pervade our academic halls.
Cannot we soon get an electric Council?
Or an elecric Pub. staff?
Think of the increase in efficiency, cleanliness and the saving in bother.

This column is open to contributions from
all members of the University. Short poems especially, will be thankfully received, but longer
contributions (book-reviews, short essays, one-
act plays, etc.) are welcome to the whole space.
There will be offered a monthly prize of at
least one dollar for the best original poem submitted. For those who (having a nice understanding of the higher, values) could not possibly accept such a scurvy sum, a special Honourable Mention cut is being made. Address all
correspondence to the literary editor via the
pub. office, or Arts letter rack. (The editor's
decision must be regarded as final.)
"Ah, yes, Mr. Eliot. He seems to me to be
much concerened . . . ."
"Yes, quite."
For all thy other blessings, oh certainly;
but not this. When you read a belly-pun from
Shakspere give it the belly laughter it requires and don't be learned about the Elizabethan pit. Try to feel just What is happening to
the prizefighter in Hemingway's magnificent
story Fifty Grand and don't be too much concerned with the stunt plot or with Hemingway's part in the development of the modern
short story.
Again, try to feel the incredible delicacy of
some of the lines in Ezra Pound's The Return,
and don't read books about the "originality"
of his poetry. And thus with all your reading.
Not that you should work towards the same
responses as those given by anyone else, but
that you should make honest emotional interpretation the reason for your reading.

The subtle ramifications of such things as
literary importance, influences, new schools,
relative positions, etc., require a breadth that
comes of wide and intensive reading and a
breadth which, I believe, ("Do you now," said
Buck Mulligan) few undergraduates possesses,
and which unfortunately, professors seem to
expect in them.
Consequently at the end of four years students of English have acquired a sort of literary jargon of names and movements that the
very professors will be in a few years describing as "passe". For the students thc feeling is the important thing, and work done by
way of research should have as it motivation
the attainment of a more complete feeling. And
later, when the years have so done with you
that you will not or cannot feel in your reading, why then, then write an essay and call it,
say, The Pre-Raphaelite Revival.

"Some of the authors, such as jolly
old Mat Prior, were given severe

Nevertheless, I prefer Mat to Dryden
—a sign of preverted taste, I suppose,"
"Also among the old timers let me

and laziness that will of necessity
invade the campus.
But I do hope the worm doesn't
*   *   •
Limited Accomodation
Here's the first idea . . .
When President Klinck on Tuesday declared that although the accommodation of the University is
only 1550, almost 1800 -students are
registered this vear, he skimmed leisurely, indifferently over a condition
that will certainly have to be remedied in a few short years.
Of course, we realize that so much
red-tape exists (.round the Campus
that President Klinck is literally unable to make .my definite statement
of policy without first submitting his
brain-waves to a multitude of higher authorities. But President Klinck
should have betn able to warn all
incoming freshmen and other newcomers that unless their examination
results showed them to be really
willing to woi'Ic, they would be automatically expelled from the University.
All men are not created equal, despite the fact that our democratic
system is based primarily on the fact
that they are—and it is unfair that
those students who have both the
mental and physical qualifications to
make a success of their University
career should be desperately hindered
by several hundred temporary visitors who serve no useful purpose, and
only provide ar unfortunate cluttering up of the Campus to the detriment of the eoliege as a whole.
Were such a limitation policy as I
suggest be introduced, based on merit alone, the sving to the Province of
British Columbia would amount to
many thousands of dollars annually.
Some students attend the University
and work hard without possessing the
necessary mental equipment to make
the grade.
It would be better to save their
families much wasted expenditures
and themselves much wasted time.
Some students attend the University
and refuse to work, making social
functions, sports and other extracurricular activities their whole interest. Such riudents do not deserve
any consideration from University
But I'm afnud that if the limitation policy were strictly enforced, the
"Ubyssey" would be compelled to
suspend publication for an indefinite
period. Most of the staff, including
this writer, belong to the second
group oi' encumbrances — those who
"do not choose to study."

Publicity   Agent  Wanted
Here's the second idea . . . after the
fashion  of Walter Winchell . . .
FLASH! It is rumored that Phrateres, newly organized idealistic
women's organization on the University of B. C. campus, is looking for
a press agent.
Not satisfied with the amount of
publicity received from Vancouver
newspapers, this commentator understands that parents, relatives, or
friends of'some leader in the new
movement visited one of the leading
dailies with the complaint that photographs used in free publicity given
to Phrateres wn-e too small and insignificant.

Liquor Adds Pay
Here's the  third  idea . . .
Th-e "Ubyssey" needs advertising-
enough to put the paper on a paying
basis. Unfortunately, advertising rates
in the "Ubyssey" are relatively high,
when it's small circulation is taken
into consideration.
Just the same, some advertisers realize that the University houses a
specialized group of readers. And
because University authorities turn
thumbs down on liquor advertising
in the college paper, the student body
ac a whole is losing hundreds of dollars annually,
The honor system forbids students
to imbibe intoxicants at University
functions—but they imbibe intoxicants just the some. And, after all,
the amount of time students spend
at University functions is only a small
percentage of their average day, week
or month.
The local dailies all carry liquor advertising. The students cannot help
having their unblemished souls sullied by the contact with the evil element of society! There is no reason
why liquor advertising should not be
admitted to the "Ubyssey"—and it
would certain y pay! Tuesday, October 1, 1935

Brethren: In righteous days there
was an ungodly discipline that, at the

might be safe in the next; and that
their brethren, admonished by their
example might be more afraid to offend.
Instead whereof, until the said discipline be restored again (which is
much to be desired), it is thought
good that at this time should be read

No Coach Yet
For Varsity
Hitchins Not Yet Back With
Soccer Boys
Among the worried athletic managers this year, you can also include
Stradlottl of the soccer boys. "Who
Will coach our team?" is the theme
of his swan song.
The soccer club is trying hard to
get Charlie Hitchens to resume the
position in wnich he made such a
success last season, but latest rumors say that his services are very
much in demand by other teams. It
is reported that he was offered the
position to coach the St. Andrew3 Inter-City League squad, but since that
team is in *he process of breaking
up, it is expected that any coaching
he does will le for his old charges.
Although the senior boys do not
start league {.;imes until a week Saturday, some of them will be seen
playing for the juniors in their opening game this week against Renfrew
Thistles. The junior and senior teams
managed by Dave Kato and Stradiottl
will be entered as of last year in
the V. and D. League and G.V.A.A.
At the practice on Wednesday, the
two lineups wil; be chosen as well
as the two captains.
The following will please turn
out on Wednesday for the game
with St. Georges School.

Make Bellingham Trip
Washingon State Normal to Furnish
Social Note: Mr. Ivor Moe, coach of the American
grid game at this institution, accompanied by his thirty Thunderbird football proteges, will leave by motor tomorrow for a short
trip to the south. While away from the campus, the team will be
entertained in a formal game of football by the Washington
Normal Vikings.
There will be a short meeting of
the Rowing Club noon Wednesday, in
Ap. Sc. 102. All interested in the
sport are urged to turn out, as plans
are made for a v/orkout at Vancouver
Rowing Club.
At noon, October 10, the Frosh Revue will take place. It is to be in
the nature of a Pep meeting for the
Frosh reception which takes place
that night.
At the Frosh yell practice on Friday last, the verdant ones elected
those men whom they thought capable of arranging a super-super-entertainment, to be known as the
"Follies   Freshaires."
Meanwhile n lone male among so
many women, a certain Junior named
Hobden, invaded a similar women's
meeting In Arts 100, and persuaded
the Freshettes lo elect damsels to act
In a similar capacity.
The committee is as follows: Ward

Doug Ford, Nancy Housser, Jeannie
Maclntyre, Fronia Snyder, Marian
Kersey, Dorothy Kinney.
Adagio dancing and a Frosh Orchestra, a Mellodrama, and a Chorus
(hurrah) are almost definitely on
the program.
The executive ask that all those
willing to co-operate will get in touch
with them, or come to a meeting

Well, here's the answer. Not only
will they do better than last year,
but they havo the makings of a team,
which in a few years will »ive Junior Conference elevens'a real battle.
And here are thc reasons. Firstl/, the
squad is not a rehashed Canadian
football team. Secondly, the boys
display a new spirit during their practices. Thirdly, they are actually giving tha ball-carrier interference.
Fourthly, thay couldn't possibly do
worse than la.-it year.
As fa- as tho first reason goes,
nothing was more disastrous than
last year's Dr. Jekyl and Mr, Hyde
policy of one week having an American football squad and the next
week :i Canadian. The difference in
the two styles rf play is too great
for a team to change overnight. The

Varsity Women
Plan to Form
Track Team
Latest of the Lrain-children of this
year's athletic executives is a plan
to revive on Ihe campus an organization which has been defunct for
well-night five years — a women's
track club.
If the longer roon-hour now being
angled for by 1 lie council comes into
effect, it is expected that women
track enthusin^ts will be seen in action in all intra-mural and inter-class
events held by the Track Club. In
1930 there was such a club here but
all attempts since then to reorganize
have fallen through.
If suitable meets could be arranged
with outside competition from local
high schools they also would be held.
At the Women';? Athletic Meeting yesterday it was decided to elect a committee of thr'io to organize those interested. Dean Bollert expressed herself not in favor of the proposal, declaring that sl'f believed the sport
rather too strenuous for women unless their activities should be closely
Are you greatly interested in some
form of University Athletics, but for
some reason or other unable to take
a really active part in it? Have you
that not uncommon urge to do something for your Alma Mammie in the
way of Sport—something that will
bring you distinction with a minimum of physical effort? Freshmen
in particular—do you want to be
seen in one of those gorgeous Big
Block sweaters, although you are not
good enough to make the team?
If so; if the paragraph above summarises some of the fondest dreams
in your heart, you have a golden opportunity for their realization presented you by the U.B.C. Athletic
Managerial System.
All five Major Sports—Rugby, Football, Basketball, Soccer and Track-
have  Senior,   Associate   and   Junior
Managers. Applications are now being taken for tho latter two positions
now, as can be seen from notices
elsewhere on this page and on campus notice boards.
The object of the system is to give
the maximum efficiency in the administration of M'3n's Athletics with
regards to such matters as league affairs, playoff scries, tours (managers
travel too) and finances. The manager represents the University in
league councils, and his sport in the
Men's Athletic Executive.
And now for the reward. The senior manager has a regulation Big
Block sweater in light blue color with
a gold "M" on the sleeve. The associate receives a regulation Small
Block also with an "M" attached.
So there you ore. This is a perfect
chance  to apply  for  distinction.

as there is still a practice on Wednesday that may affect the allotment of positions for Saturday's senior B game,  the first of the season.
As usual there will be at least
three teams in city competition—the
seniors, the seeond division team and
the third division team, the last composed mainly of freshmen. If this
third team is good enough they may
move up to tho second division
Of the senior men last year, only
Ron Upward «md Tommy Roxborough
are definitely not returning, however
the latter will be coaching the second
team. Morris is temporarily out with
a crock knee which he acquired last
summer in an attempt to collect
workmen's compensation. MacGuire
reported back on Monday and, if in
condition, should be a steady man on
the team. Senkler will be back on
Oct. 15 and undoubtedly will be in
his old fighting form.
