Importance Of Mental Attitudes
Towards International Affairs
Stressed By Lecturer Friday
Dr. Koo Emphasizes Necessity Of Education Of World Peoples
With Regard To Each Other
"Men's minds and hearts are trying to build up a structure
Hurt will pave the way to the new international order. It is necessary for .us to build up not only the structures but the type of
mind and heart."
With these words Dr. T. Z. Koo began his lecture to the student body Friday noon. Dr. Koo is a graduate from Shanghai
university and internationally known for his work with students. He spoke under the auspices of the Student Christian
Movement.
When he began to visit outside o*a~"~"
China, Dr. Koo remarked, he found
that he could learn to love other
countries and yet retain a love for
his own. He discovered that In spite
of rapid communication, and schools
to widen the horizon ignorance stUl
exists between nations. We form erroneous ideas about each other because of such things as our clothes
and music.
"In this country," Dr. Koo said, "I
do not mind being taken for a woman
because of my gown for then I am
treated with consideration but in
other cases such mistakes may lead
to more serious consequences."
Must Dispel Ignorance
"We, as men and women must try
to break down the field of ignorance
We must take time to read, to meet
people, to talk about customs. This
we can do.
"We must try to look at ourselves
as other see us." Dr. Koo illustrated
this principle by an anecdote taken
from his first trip to India. At that
time, he said, he thought the Indians
would be more sensible and much
cooler If they wore flowing robes Uke
his own. But an Indian student told
him the wind blowing his skirts
looked like a flag drooping at half
mast.
It is hard for us to sympathize because we think of each other rs
types. Christ met people in their own
right as persons. Men were drawn
to Him because they realized they
were known. A knowledge of each
other as individuals develops international understanding, sympathy and
respect.
Emphasis on Likeness
We place more emphasis on differ,
ences than on the fundamental likenesses, Dr. Koo pointed out. In the
west a child is encouraged to demonstrate his affection. In China, he is
not. The way of expression is different but what is expressed is the same.
The differences are superficial.
"Internationalism is more than sentiment and good will." During his
travels throughout the world Dr. Koo
has noticed that "no matter how we
live our lives today there is a sense
of unrest 'ind dissatisfaction with the
life we are living . One section of the
world has organized itself round one
great principle and a second section
round another. India has specialized
in theology, China in ethics and the
west during the last three hundred
years has endeavoured to master the
physical sciences. Our life has been
sectional, incomplete and .therefore,
today the world is dissatisfied and
restless. Life developed on one plain
can never give the satisfaction we
seek. Tne integration of our experience with God, man, and the physical universe brings the complete Ufe.
Individual Work Needed
"This phase of the work," said Dr.
Koo in closing, "can not be dealt with
by governments and the league. Tho
spade work is for us to do individually. Therefore, I plead you will let
your minds range in International
thought, and help build a more reasonable order between races and people."
Following the address Dr, Koo
played Chinese folk songs on his
flute. The songs were chosen from
the folk tunes of Canton, Shanghai,
Shantung and Peking.

POOR ATTENDANCE AT ELECTION
SPEECHES YESTERDAY
Candidates for the presidency of thc
Alma Mater Society presented their
platforms to a poorly attended meeting in the Auditorium yesterday noon.
Those candidates in the running arc
Stuart Keate, Walter Kennedy, Murray Mather and Jack Shaneman.
Due to the limited time at the disposal of the speakers there was UttU
opportunity to present any comprehensive programs.
Spirit Revival Pleaded
Keate pleaded the necessity of reviving the much-vaunted Varsity
spirit. He suggested Introducing American footbaU in order to provide
inter-collegiate competition. The suggestion was also made that Ubywey
advertising be placed in the hands of
a orofessional agency.
Kennedy emphasized the necessity
of the faculty of Science having «»
representative on CouncU. If elected
lie .romised to bri.ig about closo. cooperation between aU the faculties.
Experience Stressed
Mather declared that his previous
Council experience gave him the best
opportunity to judge the needs of the
students, and gave special emphasis
to the need of a level-headed conservative administration, with a sound
financial poUcy.
Shaneman stated that his record as
Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society
was sufficient to merit his election.
He had taken the office with the intention of contesting this election, and
had been gaining experience in the
past year.
AU the candidates were seconded
by supporters from the student body
who emphasized their respective
merits.
Mark Collins who occupied the
chair, criticized the students for the
lack of interest displayed.

VARSITY GRANT
TO BE BOOSTED
$50,000 is to be added to the provincial government grant to the University of British Columbia for the
year 1934-35, according to the budget
as presented to the legislature yesterday by the Minister of Finance, Hon.
John Hart. The grant wil thus be
raised from $250,000 to $300,000. While
this of course will not permit a return to the courses as offered two
years ago, it nevertheless is an assurance against further curtailment
of the curlculum, and shows that the
university still has friends who recognize the financial difficulties which,
it has had to encounter during the
last two years, as a result of drastic
reductions both in the grant and in
the enrollment.
As a culmination to weeks of effort and intensive rehearsals, the Players' Club are now all prepared to present tomorrow
for the first time their 1934 spring production, "Caesar and
Cleopatra," by George Bernard Shaw.
Seats are now on sale on the campus with reserved seat
prices of $1.00, 75 cents and 50 cents. For these performances the
seating plans have been entirely re-arranged and there are now
500 excellent seats provided at 50 cents for each night. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights will be general admission
nights while Thursday night the house will be reserved for students with rush seats at 45 cents.
♦ The Players' Club are fully expectant that this year's spring production
wiU be outstanding in the annals of
the club. They are presenting a play
of recognized merit, by a matter
writer. In every phase of the production infinite pains have been
taken.
Th. stage effects will be outstanding lor their novelty and modernity.
FuU advantage wUl be taken of the
really excellent facilities provided in
the University Theatre. Latest developments in the drama will be emphasized.
The principal members of the cast
have all proved their abUitles in previous productions. The play wlU be
directed by Miss Dorothy Somerset,
who last year gained considerable
fame as the director of the prize-
winning Little Theatre entry in the
Canadian Drama Festival at Ottawa.

LAST ISSUE
With next Friday's issue, the Ubys-

A Graphic picture of conditions in
Russia was given to the Ubyssey last
week by Carl J. Ketchum, for 10 years
war and special correspondent of the
London Daily Express and formerly
with the Vancouver Province.
"Soviet Russia has turned the corner," he declared. "After a period of
two years involving her in what was
probably the most acute food crisis
experienced since the crushing famine days of 1921-22, she has emerged
from her main difficulties and may
now be said very definitely, for thc
first time since the revolution, to be
on th. highway toward relative prosperity."
Mr. Ketchum spent five winters in
the land of the Soviet since 1922 as
a journalist and this summer travelled some 7,000 miles through twelve
republics and autonomous regions of
the Union at the instance of the National Council of Education of Can
ada in order to secure material for
lectures which he is in Canada to
deliver under the auspices of the
Council.
Record Harvest
"Three major factors have contributed to the turning of the tide in the
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics,"
said Mr. Ketchum.
"First is the record grain harvest
reaped this summer; for not since
1913. when the country had its last
peak year, has it known such a bountiful yield of what. This is important for it means that, whereas during
last and the winter before fully 500,-
000 people perished of starvation in
thw Ukraine and the Northern Can- j
casus alone, owing to crop failures,
this winter, for the first time in these
anxious two years,  the Russian peo
ple, workers and peasants alike, will
get bread.
Recognition
"American recognition comes second in importance. The moral effect
of this alliance with such a powerful
friendly democracy as the United
Stages will be tremendous. Its very
anticipation a few weeks ago when I
was still in Moscow had created a
fresh and very noticeable buoyancy
of spirit among the rank and file of
the populace. Th. fact too that the
agreement reached at Washington is
almost certain to result in an early
American credit to the Soviet of at
least $500,000,000 for the purchase of
foodstuffs, machinery and other commodities urgently required under the
terms of her second Five Year Plan,
gives th. country even more tangible
grounds for rejoicing.
Secret Mission
"Not that President Roosevelt's
move was a precipitate step taken
at Washington the moment he came
in contact with the engaging personality of M. Litvinoff. For the story
of America's preparation in Russia for
the event is a drama in itself. For
months American agents have been
travelling up and down the Union
gathering facts, figures and impressions for transmission to Washington,
their information being supported by
daily despatches ancl private messages
from a small corps of America's best
correspondents stationed in Moscow,
Then came one diplomat after another
always on 'mysterious unofficial missions,' finally culminating in the visits in October of Senator McAdoo and
Colonel  Charles  Lindherg.

Science of Music
Institute Topic
Will the future see alleged singers
facing a mechanical device to be used
for studying the quality of their
voices? This startling question was
suggested by Professor J, G. Davidson, of the Department of Physics,
when he gave an illustrated lecture
on the subject: "The Science of Musical Sounds" before a meeting of the
Vancouver Institute held on Saturday evening in Arts 100.
"Air is in vibration as it transmits
a sound-wave", declared the speaker
as he opened his address with a discussion of the wave-motion of sound,
He illustrated his remarks with slides,
showing that rarefaction follows condensation in this motion.
Mr. Davidson then defined frequency, or pitch, as the number of an object's vibrations per second. The
normal range of the piano is from
about 27 to about 8,000 vibrations per
second. A "regular train of sound
waves gives the effect of a musical
note."
Dealing with the "well-balanced
choir,' he revealed that there was "a
tremendous range of energies through
which our ears operate." Individual
membres of an audience always experience different receptions. The
lecturer used a rotating disc and a
piece of cardboard to illustrate his
remarks.
The construction of the. ear was explained to the audience—but it appears, in the final analysis, that "we
don't know how we hear after all."
Resonance and vibration in ears
were next disposed of, and Mr. Davidson showed how a sounding-board
responds to any impulses coming to
it. Thc essential feature of the violin
is "the mutual action between bow
and string."
"Musical effects were known to the
ancients—the medieval world was familiar with them — but it remained
for moderns to discover the numerical, or quantitative, aspects," declared
the speaker. The quality, or tone, of
a sound is determined by the number
of overtones present—thus they enable us to distinguish between different voices and other sounds.
Brief experiments with thc elimination of these overtones from  musi-1

VOTERS WAKE UP!
APES
AND
The meeting of the candidates for the
Alma Mater society yesterday was not very
encouraging either from the calibre of the
speeches or the size of the audience. Allowance must be made, however, for the difficulty
in presenting any,sort of platform in the short
time allotted.
There was no excuse for the smattering of
students that turned out to the meeting. Tho
election of the Alma Mater President is a matter of the most vital importance to the univer
aity and yet only a very few students showed
enough interest to see what their candidates
looked like and hear what they had to offer.
There is no excuse for any member of the
Alma Mater Society not casting his ballot today. Students have been given a full opportunity to read or hear what the candidates have
to offer, and the respective merits or demerits
have been discussed in full
Cast your vote to-day, and show that the
privilege of the franchise is not a mere ornament for the politically-minded few.
VOCATIONAL LECTURES
The efforts of the vocational guidance committee organized by the Alumnae Association
have been very successful this term. Students
have turned out in encouraging numbers to
hear the speakers sent up from the city. It was
noticeable however at the last meeting that
there was a decided falling off in attendance.
If these lectures are to be maintained there
must be a whole-hearted support from the student body. It is discouraging to the speaker if
the interest shown by him in the welfare of the
students is not appreciated.
There will be two more such lectures this
term. Tomorrow Mr. A. E. Jukes, will speak
on the profession of stock brokerage. The following Wednesday the guest speaker will be
Mr. Mayne D. Hamilton, Superintendent of
Pacific Coast Branches of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce, who will discuss banking.
As both these speakers are well-known
Vancouver business men, a large turn-out will
benefit both the audience and the university
as a whole.

BONDAGE
A thousand times I vent my grief
For I have lost my liberty;
A thousand ties too poignant brief
Have bound my soul, my aU, to thee.
All things of equal loveliness	
The budding trees, the swaying grass,
AU things of beauteous loneliness
I cannot with mere glances pass.
For white blooms teU me of thy brow,
Whispering trees of thy clear voice
And gurgling brooks which laughing flow
Of eyes in which I oft rejoice.
Thus, thou my eyes have gently sealed
Against all earthly beauty now, * "
For aU these things to me reveal
Only the pureneas of thy brow.

GOWNS ON THE CAMPUS
Members of Students' 'Council have always been and always will be fair game for
mockers.   Their quaint foibles, their sins of
omission and commission this phrase
used in the glib and harmless ministerial fashion  are observed by a myriad critical
eyes, and set forth with embroideries in this
Phlllistinic sheet. Not the least of the scoffing
is that which has been levelled against their
gowns, which have been likened by the sacri-
ligious to smocks, and even to black nighties.
Here and now, I break with tradition and
raise xfty voice for the gown. Gowns lend dig'
nity; they inspire in freshmen the awe proper
in youth to age; the wide sleeves are admirable
storage-vaults for lunches and Liberties, and
the sight of a senior loping to a lecture with his
gown, symbol of majesty, blowing out behind
him in a March gale lends an ascetic touch to
an otherwise frivolous campus.
This touch is at present lacking. Wherefore, if another year sees us once again racketing out copy against time, Peter-the-Ape and
I will agitate loudly for the return of the gown,
and the dignity that goes with it.
Class and Club
ARTS CLUB
The regular meeting of the Art
Club Scheduled for Wednesday, March
14, has been postponed until March
21. Dr. A. F. B. Clarke will speak on
Russian Art, and he has kindly invited the club to hold this meeting
at his house, 5037 Maple.
AVE CAESAR!
"Caesar and Cleopatra", which a well-organized publicity campaign has for the past
few weeks advertised to students and to the
people of Vancouver as the Players' Club production for this spring, should be an especially
interesting one. For it is in three respects a pronounced departure from the clubs' efforts in
former years.
In the first place, it is on a grander scale and
has a much larger cast. Then again it is of a
different type, and will give local audiences a
taste of G. B. Shaw's much vaunted wit, while
at the same time it will give the experimenting
actors and producers a new medium of expressing their talents.*And finally, it is featured by
the innovation of scenery that not only is an
experiment along modern lines, but also is the
work of the club's own technical crew. This
again affords a means for expression of the abilities of the participants and also will give
spectators an idea of modern tendencies in
theatrical presentation.
In consideration of these facts, and of the
immense amount of work which every member
of the club has consequently had to expend
on the undertaking, it behooves every student
who can possibly do so to show his or her interest by going to witness the results of their
labors.
ded our space disgracefully even as we're doing
now.   And "
"Please, Peter, no more," I begged. "You
paint a dismal picture. Isn't there one thing at
least that can be said in our favour?"
"About all that I can venture," declared
the ape, "is that we've kept running, and served
up verses almost every week. Shall we let it
go at that, Bill, and say good-by?"
So observe us now, hand clasped in paw,
ready to take our leave. Not a formal 'good-by'
though; just so-long. A pleasant expression
that it merely means "Till next time.'
I SING A RIVER
Where the long blue ridges lean their heads together
Above an Island river, beneath an Island sky,
Sprawled on a sldehlU ln the smoky August weather
I sang a river, and watched the gods go by.
(Laughing in the sunlight, sobbing In the shade
Out of pagan country from the rugged Beaufort
piles,
I sing a western river, curved like a blade,
Slashing through the wilderness for sixty golden
miles.)
I watched the gods%walking, bright against the mournful
Green dusk of cedar with the sunshine on their hair;
The new gods together, lithe and young and scornful . . .
0 but they were scornful, and O but they were fair!
(When  the  wide  wings hover  above  the twilight
beaches
And the wild things come to drink, querelous and
shy
All along the shifting bars and the shadowy reaches,
Then, then the river-voice swells Into a cry.)
1 heard their strong voices, golden as the burning
Fierce Ught that ringed them, terrible and sweet;
What they said I know not ... I only know the yearning
Miles of August wilderness worshipped at their feet.
(Who stoops to my river, thirsty after drouth
Will find therein nepenthe against the aching years,
Will find all other waters bitter in his mouth
And die with the river-voice ringing in his ears.)
O I am mad with beauty, and go my ways dreaming
For there is no forgetting, now or ever after    ,
The new gods of heaven beside my river gleaming,
And golden through the heat-haze their young, immortal
laughter.

LAST ROUNDUP
"How it is I couldn't possibly explain,"
said Peter-the-Ape to me, "but here w<? are,
almost through our last column. Strange how
time flies, isn't it, Bill?"
"Strange, indeed," I replied, lifting an eye
from the minor Elizabethan dramatists who
make my days a torment and my nights a
sleepless misery. "What have we left in the
bin, Peter?   Enough for a grand denouement?"
'I'm afraid not," said Peter, beginning to
excavate in his usual haphazard style. Dead
copy flew in all directions under his energetic
paws, covering the floor like a fall of autumn
leaves. "One book review, the one we were
searching for a month or so back. By the quite
illegible writing, I'd say that D. R. sent it in;
you'd better apologize to him, Bill."
"I will," I promised. "What else have we?"
"Some poems, all of them very vile, yours
included. A math I. text I'd hoped permanently lost, and several stale lunches. Can we
say that we've finished the year successfully?"
"Of course!"' I assured him. "One must always say that, true or otherwise. The politicians do it, so why shouldn't we? Suppose
now you play recording angel and list our
faults and virtues, if any."
"Very well," agreed my little literary ape.
"More than once we've altered and extended
contributions until they appeared so disguised
that even their brain-parents could hardly recognize them.   Then we've quibbled, Bill, pad-

ures of imports and exports in Russia
for the first six months of 1933, also
revealed in the splendid trade information service of the American-Russian Chamber of Commerce in Moscow, to appreciate Canada's opportunity.
"Russian purchases in this period
totalled 190,914,000 roubles, mueh of
which money might have—and might
still—come to Canada."
Mr. Ketchum here gave some interesting figures.
"In imports for the six months in
question," he pointed out, "Germahy
took first place with produce valued
at 98,985,000 roubles. England came
second, with goods sold to Russia valued at 18,257,000 roubles and Italy
third with 9,455,000 roubles worth of
goods.
"In the complete list of thirty-five
and some odd countries Canada is
last with exports to Russia amounting to the insignificant sum of 400
roubles.
"Export figures from Russia for the
first six months of 1933 must likewise interest Canadians," continued
Mr. Ketchum, "although, let it be
stated, Canada is one of the few
countries in the world that does not
appear in this list at all."
"Germany comes first with purchases totalling 47,835,000 roubles; England again takes second place with
purchases, largely of timber, amounting to the appreciable sum of 31,773,-
000 roubles; then France (13,166,000 r.);
Belgium (12,108,000 r.); and Italy (11,-
215,000 r.) in the order named among
purchasing European countries.
Mr. Ketchum, asked about present-
day conditions in Moscow and the
Soviet Union generally, went on:

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Now that we have heard the campaign speeches of the candidates for
the coming elections let us think the
matter over for ourselves.   The nominations include men from both Arts
and Science.   Also it is a fact that
Science prides herself on her ability
to organize—as vreil she might.   However, let us not overplay this accomplishment.    An election  is the very
time to exercise cne's individuality,
that i.« what th. franchise is for—and
does not the secret ballot here help
the weaker of us.   It is not fair to
oneself—nor for that matter to civilization as a whole, to allow some
one else to buUdose him into doing
something of which he, secretly, does
not approve.   Take for example the
possibility of a few Sciencemen deciding to  .lect a Science candidate.
They  might play up the ability  of
Science to organize and then suggest
organizing   to   elect   this   candidate,
Some students, especially in the lower years, would fall for this line right
off the bat, thinking that this would
once again show the superiority of
Science—and incidentally turn a few
breaks their way next year.   However,  the deeper thinking fellow  is
going to realize that if the election
of a Science candidate is going to benefit him only at the expense of the
rest of the University, this is the time
for him to exercise his individuality
ancl to do as he,  personally,  thinks
right—even  though  it   might   maan
voting for a man from another Faculty.    Any superiority that is being
shown comes from this chap.   He is
able to forget his own petty grievances and ambitions and is showing a
bit of that "We'll all pull together"
spirit—for the whole University.
Now don't gather that my motto is
"Don't vote for a Sclenceman." Far
from it. But think the matter over.
Sum up the candidates personally, decide from an unprejudiced view point
on the best man—and vote for him.

the Union, are rising to completion.
Several mUes of the city's streets
have been tunnelled for the first time
in history for a deep-level underground raUway modeUed on the famous London system; this ia to be
opened for traffic at the end of next
year.
New Hotels
"A score of new hotels have come
into being in various parts of the
Union. In Moscow the hotels—and
there are many of them now—have
improved 100 per cent in meals, service and accommodation. Whereas
also, two years ago, travellers were
received by indifferent porters who
seemed not to care wheher you came
or went, today every hotel has its
staff of commissioners, attired in
smart green and gold uniforms, white
glows and an air of dignity and courtesy equal to that of any concierge
anywhere.
"Two years ago If you walked down
any of the principal thoroughfares of
Moscow or Leningrad after dusk,
shops were poorly lighted while the
streets themselves seemed dingy and
dark. Today militiamen in neat uniforms and again, white gloves, direct
the traffic signals of the standard international (European) traffic control system, while the streets, under
the impetus of what appears to be a
'brighter Moscow movement,' have
become a blaze of incandescence.
CoUectlvism
"Canada would do well to make a
study of the collective farm movement In Russia," suggested Mr.
Ketchum. "lt might quite conceivably solve the problem of settling our
vast undeveloped territories In nor-
ness and the drudgery which go with
individual homestead life in these remote regions.
"As for the second Five Year Plan,"
commented Mr. Ketchum, "it la the
promise of the fulfilment of its terms
which is now held forth by Soviet
leaders as hope for better times In
the vary near future."
"The plan provides first for a vast
increase in development of light industry, neglected under the first plan
in favor of heavy industry. It provides for an Increase on a large scale
in the production of commodities for
home consumption ln place of export, as heretofore, a rise in the
tempo and quality of production and,
last but not least, definite provision
for raising the standard of living of
workers and peasants alike."
"That this plan too will succeed in
a general way, as did the first, I personally have not the slightest doubt.
Whether, however, the Soviet wUl be
able to raise the standard of living to
its proper and desired level ln the
time hoped for, only the future can
tell."

Spring   is a funny   thing.   Some
things I guess everybody thinks of
in spring, like wet hankies and peeling nose and new white shoes and
radishes and tomato sandwiches, but
I always either am in love or have a
broken heart.   Last year it was the
latter over that droop Jimmy Brown
with the wire hair and big feet which
ia all I remember now but then aU
I saw was hla brown eyea. Thia year
of course I'm in love with John but
if I ever change my mind I probably
will remember, among the tactless
things that he has told me, that he
haa   an   ingrowing   toenaU,   which
should help me to steel myself against
him should he ever meet somebody
else he likes better than me. It's a
funny thing how much smarter girls { f
are than boys in that way, for instance John wiU never know what a
time I have with dandruff and that
I used ta bite my nails.   He knows
my blue dress matches my eyes and
that my hair is golden and wavy—
which he doesn't know set me back

when I get up ln the morning he
wouldn't look at me the way he does
the last thing at night . Music affects
me in the spring.   Last year it made
me think   of Jimmy's   faithlessness
and I used to just about wither, but
this year I think of all the nice things
John   says,   especiaUy   after   dinner,

How would you like to wake
up at 4 o'clock in the morning
and find that, instead of b«in_
safe at home In bed, you were
all alone on the ghostly stage
of the U.B.C. auditorium?
That was the experience of
Don Ingham on Saturday
night. About 1 a.m. he grew
just a little bored with the
dress rehearsal of "Caesar and
Cleopatra" and slipped off behind the cyclorameter for a
little nap.
He woke three hours later
ancl walked wearily home all
by his lonasome. The rest of
the cast and stage crew had
departed to a well-earned rest
at 2:30, stopping somewhere in
the middle of the city to im-
biba doughnuts and pies in the
lights of Miss Somerset's car.

No more Sneers and Jeers tiU next
year- The breeze you hear is the
unanimous sigh of some 300 Supreme
Potentates, reinforced by a large selection of guilty consciences at loose
on the campus. What a reUef it must
be for them.
As a final benediction, I think it
appropriate to drop a few gentle
hints that the various class executives
may profit by, especially that of our
present Freshman and soon to be
Sophomoric year, Arts '37.
Class executives are among the most
typical "stuffed shirt" organizations
we have. In a few short years they
have declined from a position of high
importance to being mere conveners
for an annual class party, and usually
very inefficient conveners at that.
A few years ago they were almost
the mainspring of university Ufe. No
important developments occurred on
the campus without the class organizations being behind lt, or concerned
in it in some manner. Now, two-thirds
of tho student body don't know what
year they are in tiU they see their
pictures in the Totem. What is more,

WELL, WHY NOT?
Dr. Coleman admits himself that
he either gives ten or nothing for
an essay. Nothing if you don't hand
it in. Here are some prize samples
which we hear netted ten.

been widely discussed in circles of
science medicine and philosophy. Cauliflower cauliflower rhubarb horseradish monkey cauliflower monkeys

(2) Evolution ia one of the moat
widely talked of scientific problems
of our time. Ha Ha doctor coleman

(p) Is Evolution? A momentous
question, yes yes lndeedy I should
aay so, by all means and absolutely
beyond a doubt it is a great question.
What I mean to aay is there can be
no possible conceivable doubt that
this is a great subject and worthy

It is not the Campus Crab that

The worst part of it is that nothing
has grown up to take the very important place that this has left empty.
It is probable that the older years
are too far gone to come out of their
trance. This leaves it up to Arts '37
to come to the rescue. They will be
responsible for the introduction of Arts
'38 into collegiate life next faU. It is up
to them to carry out this duty in such
a manner that the future Freshies realize that they have left high-school
and have come to a place where they
have a little responsibility to both
themselves and the university.
After the depressing spectacle of
mental hibernation Arts '37 has been
treated to this year, it will be rather
surprising if they can muster up
enough energy and initiative to do
their duty properly, but If, by some
strange regeneration, they do, there
will be a large selection of seniors
and juniors who will feel pretty small
next year, if their atrophied sensibilities retain any vestige of a sense
of shame.
Do university students think? I don't
know. But if they do, it is remarkable the number that accuse me of
deliberately ruining the reputation of

Province Evened Series With Win Friday
FRIDAY'S GAME
Blue and Gold Lose 35-34 In
Overtime
Refereetng Not So Good
A capacity crowd at the V.A.C.
gymn. on Friday night wltneaaed a
battle that UteraUy waa a battle when
Province pulled off a 39-34 win over
the students in overtime play.
The newsboys overcame a lead that
was run up by an inspired team. The
first half waa featured by the almost
perfect basketball of the atudenta.
They started out and made basket
after basket almost as though the
Province wasn't there. They worked
the ball around with unerring precision and scored almost every time they
shot.
Vanity Slips
The break came as the boys began
to tire and the coach broke up the
winning combination by substitutions.
With a score of 23-7 against them the
Province started in to work, and
managed to get 6 points before the
end of the half to leave the score at
«-13.
Province Good
The .ccond half was almost the opposite from the scoring point of view.
The students only managed to get 7
points in the second period, though
they missed from all over the floor.
After pulling the score up to 28-28
the Province managed to get a two-
point lend on foul shots and a last
minute effort by Nicholson mad., it
a 30-30 tie when the whistle shrilled.
Kennington Stars
In the overtime period, the Vu.'".y
ieam must have been an awful crew
of foul sllngers according to the numerous though very unpopular decisions of Referee Porter. At first Long
John Purves failed miserably when
he missed 4 foul shots. Varsity proceeded with two foul scores and a
basket by Wright to take the lead.
Province followed this by a score and
after one point on a foul, with only
30 seconds to go Kennington made a
magnificent one-handed shot that
swished through the hoop for the
winning point.
Fights
In the overtime interval Wiiloughby and Armstrong decided to have a
little private fight, much to the excitement of a blood-thirsty crowd.
Rather Indignant officials banished
both of them from the floor. And
then in an unsportsmanlike manner
Harvey Mclntyre started a fight with
Osborne in the dressing room. In all
it was a nice exciung little riot. Incidentally Armstrong was suspended,
leaving Province short a guard.

gamely and gradually cut down the
lead. Union were two points ahead
when the last ev nt, a mile race, began.

see the Newsies run up the biggest
lead in the series. The final score
was 28-23.
First Half Slow
Play opened slowly. The first score
coming after a penalty against Varsity. The shooting of both teams was
weak. Plenty of fouls were called on
both teams, Varsity if anything, getting the better end of the deal. Varsity had a sUght lead 13-10 when the
whistle blew.
Province Look Oood
In the second half Province had
the edge of the play, their shooting
being better. Long John Purves of the
Newsies was especiaUy good. Province caught up to Varsity early in
the half and towards the end drew
away to take the game 28-23.

at his First Rugby Game."
So this is that rugby game I been
hearing so much about , . . What do

those short panties and bare knees,
will ya? . . . Boy, what a gang of
American football players would do
to these guys! . . . First degree murder, that's all! . . Maybe all right,
but it looks kinda pansy to me! . . •
I just can't get tho idea of them bare
knees . . . Look like chorus girls, 'r
| somep'n! . . .
I    Here's   the    kick-off ... Bet    they
I can't kick  it as far as our guys do
j . . . See, I told ya!   What's that? .    .
| They  intended  it  to be short? ....
| Well,  then,  why  don't  they recover
: it . .    What's   that   guy   doing?
Kicking it back?    . . What's the big
idea of that? . . . Not much of a kick
... Went outta bounds , . . Supposed
I to «o  out? ... I  don't get the id«a
I of this game at all, at all . . .
I *   *   *
I Now what they doing? . . . Line-
| out? . . . What's   that? ... Oh,   they
throw the ball back in when it goes
'out. huh? . . . Don't they call no sig-
i nals'.' . . . Well, how do they know
| what to do, then? ... Or do they got
(tipped of by the coach on the bench?
| . . . What's 'AT? . . . Coach supposed
| to be in the stands, unless he's play-
I ing? . . . Say.   what   kinda   game   IS
this,  anyway?    Coaches ain't  'sposed
to play!
Why don't that guy PASS?
They'd oughter be a set-up for a
good passing attack . . Backfield's all
spread out . . . You mean to tell me
you CAN'T throw a forward pass In
this game? . . . That's daffy football,
if you ask me! . . . But why don't
they try a end run, 'r somep'n? . . .
There they go—THERE THEY GO! . .
. . Block for him, youse guys out in
front there! . . . Block 'em out! . . . ,
What'.i 'AT? . . . What's wrong now?
. . . Why don't they take that referee's whistle away from him? . . .
That's just the trouble with these
English games . . .Soon's they get in-
teersting somebody's called fqr a
foul! . . . ROBBER! . . . BOO! . . .
They were off for a touchdown then!
Whit thoy doing now? . . . What's

lotta damage a guy c'd do with n
paddle out there . . . Ha! Ha! Ha!
. . . If that ain't a scream! ... So

charging tackles c'd do with a layout
like that! . . .

. . . Boy, on the dead run, too! . . .

. . . Look at that baby STEP, will ya?

. , . Attaboy! . . . Pick 'em up 'n' lay
'em down! ... Is he a snake-hips,
or is he a SNAKE-HIPS! . . And nobody running any interference for
him, neither! . . . Boy, this is quite a
ball   game,   if   anybody   should   ask
you! . • . Those fellers mean business!
• •   •
Com** ON, now! . . . Here's yer

. . . We wanna touchdown! . . . Come

Did you see what I saw? . . . What's
a matter with that guy, crazy ....
Looks like he had a swell chance t'
score a touchdown, and here he goes
and kick a field goal! . . . Ancl did
you see how he kicked it? . . . On
the dead run, without even stopping
to take aim! . . . Mister, that's KICKING, what I mean! . . . Oho! ....
Counts four points, you say, when a
touchdown only counts three? ....
That guy was plenty smart, at that!
. , . And did ho kick it? , . .
Say, stranger, this is more fun'n
I've had at a football game in a
coon's age . . . How long's this sortn
thing been going on? . . . And when
do they play again? ....
Varsity Downs Art
Monument 2-0
McDougall and Kozoolin Score For Varsity
When Kozoolin accepted a pass from Dave Todd to break
through for a fine goal eight minutes from time, he cinched the
verdict for Varsity in one of the best games played in the
V. and D. First Division this year. Art Monument, rated one of
the strongest elevens in Vancouver, played good football, but
the Collegians were in fine fettle, and deserved their 2-0 win.

Inter-
Played at Cambie Street grounds the
contest brought rounds of applause
from the crowd of 6,000, for both
squads dished up a clean, fast, and
methodical brand of soccer.
The Blue and Gold controlled the
play during a great portion of the
first half, but fine work by the Monument backs kept their forwards at
bay for the first half hour. With fif-
teen minutes to go, Archie MacDoug-
aU cUmaxed a nice passing movement
by beating two defenders and depositing the sphere into the left corner of
the net, thereby giving Varsity a 1-0
advantage at half-time.
After the interval, the Stonemasons
brought on two fresh players, and
tried desperately for the equalizer,
but Jock Waugh and Millar McGiU
were brilUant on the defence. Continual pressure finaUy resulted in a wild
scramble In the Varsity goalmouth;
with Greenwood drawn out of position, McGill blocked a point-black
drive on the goal-line, cleared and sent
his mates on the offensive once more.
The remainder of the match wfls
featured by smooth passing attacks
by both sides, with Kozoolin's goal
putting the result beyond doubt.
Shortly from full-time the Monument broke away for what appeared
a certain score. Greenwood, however,
rose to the occassion, making a brilliant one-handed save.
Waugh and McGiU stood out for
the Students in a team which performed finely as a whole. Greenwood's
work in goal was steady, while Thurber, Wolfe, and Costain formed an effective half-line. The forward Une
with Stewart and MacDougall In the
inside births, was a constant threat to
the Monument men.
The best-balanced eight that Vancouver Rowing Club has produced |
for several years defeated a weakened i
Varsity crew by six lengths in an
easy victory at their annual intev-
club regatta last Saturday at Coal
Harbor. The distance was one mile,
550 yards, Canadian Henley.
In the four-oared event, another
smooth team belonging to the Clubbers triumphed by three lengths over
the Blue and Gold oarsmen. In the
other events, Arts beat Science by
one and a half lengths, managing to
catch fewer crabs over the one-mile
course.
