Pep Club, Home Gas, To
Agitate CKMO Tonight
From 10:30 On It's All Ours—Rally Should Boost  Ticket Sales
For Alberta Intercollegiate Battle
"CKMO—Wide awake and rarin' to go!"
That's Billy Brown's slogan and Varsity's cashing in on
it tonight. '
For at 10:30 Massa Brown will hand over the deed, first
mortgage, or what have you, to the Sprott Shaw Schools station
and it will be taken over by the Pep Club on an All-B.C. hiccup.
From 10:30 on Messrs. Swift, Tre-^>
maine, Hilker, Perkins, Stewart (need
we go on?), aided and abetted by
Win Shilvock, Harold King, and the
Home (You can buy no better) Gas
boys will attack the ether with even
more violence than Gerry McGeer
and Doc Telford, in their most fluent
The purpose >f it all, as President
Jack Turvey of the Canadian Rugby
Club will explain, is to steam up
ticket-sales for the forthcoming battle with tne University of Alberta.
"Who's Afraid of the Golden
Bears" has been adopted as the official scream song of some forty lusty-lunged studes that will act as, in
Sedgewickian parlance, "stage machinery," for the occasion. Alberta
yells will be intermingled with the
occasional "Kitsilano."
The Home Gas orchestra, after giving Varsity a big break in their concert on Sunday night, went one better when they piomised Turvey all
kinds of entertainment for tonight's
show. It is expected that all the features of the last stupendous, gigantic,
colossal (or you think up an adjective) Pep Meeting, will be included
in the program tonight. Opera-composer Jno. (just call me John) Emerson, will undoubtedly favor with a
few timely gavottes.
It should be a lot of fun. Tune in
to CKMO at 10:30 tonight and be
prepared to listen until you drop. 9.00
o'clocks may be cancelled Wednesday
morning, just so you can hear the
whole program.
Everybody that is taking part in
the show (und that means you>, has
been asked by President Swift to
turn out backstage at 4 today and rehearse. "Mike" fright will not be
tolerated, it must strictly be understood.

The tea dance at the Peter Pan
ballroom on Nov. 11 is to ba entirely
f. stag affair, said Eleanore Walker,

'34 Class Cavorts
At Annual Gallop
The Senior Class party last Thursday evening centred more around el-
, ection returns than regretful reminiscences to the effect that the affair
j was the last of its kind to be enjoyed
I by the graduates-t,o-be.
! An interested crowd hovered around
the lounge radio cf the Hotel Georgia
and results were flashed to the
dancers   in  the   Aztec   ballroom   as
I partners shifted. A crashing orchestral finale from Earle Hill's synco-
pators heralded thc news of the Liberal victory almost as soon as the
crowds outside thc downtown paper
offices were aware of it. Seniors
cheered, while Earle Hill played
"Who's afraid of the C. C. F.?"
Dr. and Mrs. Gordon Shrum, Dean
M. L. Bollert and Dean and Mrs.
Daniel Buchanan extended their patronage for the affair, while Art McLellan,  president  of   Arts   '34,   and

Playing to a packed house at the
Strand Theatre on Sunday, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra fulfilled
the promise o* a good season when,
for the first time in its history it was
forced to encore a number.
The program, designed as it was
to suit the popular taste, proved to
be a little patchy, presenting everything from a Haydn Symphony to
Thc "1812" Overture. This latter
number, in which the Orchestra was
supplemented by the Kitsilano Boys'
Band, was the most popular number
on the program. tThe encore, consisting of a repetition of the last half of
the Overture, came as an anti-climax; but was none the less appreciated by the audience.
The Vivaldi Concerto for four violins, one of the less inspired compositions of the Italian school of tlie 16th
and 17th centuries, was well played
by the solo violins and well received
by the audience.
"The Jewels of the Madonna" was
an unhappy choice, since the Orchestra has not yet reached that stage of
perfection where it can play such difficult selections with the necessary
lightness and abandon. It was, how-j
ever, an effective number,
The Hadyn Symphony was sympathetically interpreted by deRidder,
proving to be the second most popular selection on the program.
Handel's "Largo" was the least effective number on the program, as it
featured the wood-winds, the weakest section of the Orchestra.
The "Egmont" Overture and "Fin-
gal's Cave," two well known selections, were very popular choices with
the audience.
The effect of the whole program
was a very pleasing one, aad the
Vancouver audiences can only hope
that thc standard set by the first and
second concerts will be maintained
for the rest of the season.—J. A. B.
Seattle Varsity Will
Harbor Conference
Joining forces and knowledge in a
two-day study of intenational relations, student delegates from all colleges and universities of the Northwest will meet on the University of
Washington campus in Seattle, Dec.
1 and 2 for the annual Students' International  Relations  conference.
Economic recovery programs, both
foreign and domestic, of all major
nations, will be the subject of conference discussions, according to Sidney Spear, assistant dean of men of
the University of Washington, chairman of the conference. The conference will concern itself largely with
the international implications of the
various recovery programs.
"Nations treated will be chosen as
representatives of characteristic. and
different approaches to the problem,"
Spear said in announcing the conference theme.
Shirl Blalock, N. R. A. administrator for the Northwest, and Dr. Rein-
hardt, German consul in Seattle, will
conduct tho student round-table discussions. Linden A. Mander, associate professor of political science at
the U. of W, and an authority on international relations, is program
chairman of the conference. He has
arranged for surveys of the N. R. A.
Fascism ancl the Russian Communist
plans for home and world recovery.

Co-Eds Dislike Fuzz
With a lone contestant left in the
running, our gigantic beard-growing
contest has exceeded all expectations.
Marvin Darrach, the runner-up, after
a week of abstinence, has applied a razor to his chin.
"People don't understand," said Mr.
Darrach. "They see me in this condition, and say 'higher education —
phooey!' It's embarrassing too, especially when one has to pass a public
school on bis way home."
The   flame   of   another   contestant
raised  strenuous objections.    Beards,
as  far  as she  was  concerned,  were
out.   Love came before duty, and the
razor descended again.

War Is Hell
The Anti-War Society on the campus of the University of Toronto held
its first organization meeting on October 30. About 100 students and several prominent undergraduate organizations wero represented, in the enthusiastic audience.
The first motion passed was that
the Society seek official recognition.
The purp.it! of Ihe Society was embodied in the adadress of C. L. Co-
burn, chairman of the meeting, who
"We must not restrict ourselves to
making speeches ancl passing resolutions. We must base our policy upon
what an anti-war movement can do."
Tlie tentative aims of the society
were based on th? policy of the English Students' Anti-War Council. A
decision was made that in relation to
the C.O.T.C. a definite stand of opposition to all militaristic influence
must he maintained, but there was
no desire to oppose the right of any
student to join the C.O.T.C. since it
has   as   much   right   to   exist   as   any
other campus organization.

Says the Washington Daily, "Faced

plans for a presentation of the University's financial condition to thc
state legislature if it convenes in a

The professors claim their salaries
are too low. The students claim the
University spends too little per capita of students. The University claims
that the taxes haven't been rolling
in with the accustomed case and
grace. The students claim there nre
not enough professors to go around.

For Legislative
Weir's Election Loss To Dept.
Of Education
After ten years on the Faculty of
the University, Dr. George M. Weir
is leaving to enter the Provincial
Legislature. For several years Dr.
Weir has filled the post of head of
the Department of Education here
and has built up a reputation as an
authority on education and its problems.
Dr. Weir graduated from McGill
and spent the succeeding six months
in the Archives at Ottawa. He took
post-graduate courses at Queen's,
Chicago and Columbia, and held professorships in the University of Saskatchewan. Due to his special efforts
in Educational work he was appointed Principal of the Normal School
for that province. It was while he
still held this position that he was
offered a position at this University
in 1923.
Although Dr. Weir has never held
a legislative position he has carried
on a great deal of governmental research work while in B. C. During
1924 he made an intensive investigation of the educational systems of
B. C. As the joint author of the Putnam-Weir report he has gained a
wide reputation for up-to-date and
extensive knowledge of the educational work of the province.
From 1929 to i931 Dr. Weir was absent from the University, engaged in
completing the most exact Nursing
Survey ever held in Canada. As a
practical work this has had most important results.
Dr. Weir sums up his work very
briefly as "an intermingling of the
practical and theoretical lines of education."
The professors claim a surplus of
students in classes. And everyone is
very unhappy.

Optional  Attendance
The Rutgers Targum reports, by
way of the Oregon Daily Emerald,
that optional attendance at lectures
for seniors has become a reality. The
concession was made in the interests
of those students who occasionally
find it desirable to sacrifice an hour
at one class for an hour of study in
some other subject which seems more
pressing at the moment.
It seems rather odd that the college which in its earlier times arrested the world for a moment in its
perpetual round by chortling conspicuously, "I'd die for dear old Rutgers' in a most c'legiate manner,
should be the first to embrace one
of the fundamentals of voluntary attendance of the European universities.

But not with all its mane.
Marked enthusiasm for the British
Commonwealth — pride in its past-
faith in its future—these were thc
keynotes of an address given by Dr.
W. N. Sage, F.R.H.S., on the subject
of: "The British Commonwealth and
Foreign Policy," before the Vancouver Institute on Saturday evening.
Defining the Commonwealth as
"the United Kingdom ancl the dominions, including India," the speaker
traced its historical background and
asserted that "it is one of the greatest
of modern political organisms."
The chaos of contemporary conditions in the world has obscured the
fact that "in our quiet British way a
world empire has been transformed,"
declared Dr. Sage.
Evolution of Foreign Policy
He showed how matters stood with
regard to the foreign policy of the
Empire before the World War—pointing out that "when Britain was at
war, Canada was at war." The drive
for federation within the Empire was
dealt with, showing the evolution of
the Canadian attitude that "foreign
policy was to be a matter of co-operative settlement."
The breakdown of a unified policy
for thc Commonwealth in recent
years was illustrated by means of
the Chanak incident of 1922, which
revealed that tho dominions might
refuse to enter into a war undertaken by Great Britain. Further examples, such as the trouble arising
out of the ratifications of the Lausanne Peace Treaty and the Halibut
Treaty of 1923 between Canada nd
the United States, were cited to show
the lack of a united policy.
New Conception
The Imperial Conference of 1923
"accepted the principle that a dominion might negotiate treaties not affecting other parts of the Empire a,id
might sign them alone, but in tlv
case of bilateral treaties should be
signed by plenipotentiaries on behalf
of all tho governments concerned."
Dr. Sage dealt at some length with
his impressions of the first mee'ing
of the British Commonwealth Relations Conference, which was held in
Toronto last September. The principles of co-operation in foreign policy; the machinery needed for co-operation: the purely legal aspect of the
problems presented, and co-opormion
in matters other than foreign policy-
were among the questions dealt wnh
by the Conference.
Discussing the decision peached by
the Conference—that the future of
the Commonwealth was closely connected   with   the   "collective   system"
Although the event occured only a
few miles from their front doorsteps, many people here first heard
the news of the passing of Texn

from W. Y. While Winchell himself
was too sick to broadcast and although it was her first time on the

that La Guinan was once a columnist
on B'way and a pal of Walter Winchell. Does that explain why she appeared in Winchell .s picture "Broadway Through a Keyhole?"

English Ruggers
Win Close Game
5-0 From Rowers
Improved Scrum Aids
Students in Victory
Mitchell Scored Try;
Dalton Converted
Varsity English Ruggers successfully managed to stave off a last minute
Rowing Club rally to eke out a 5-0
win at Brockton Point on Saturday.
The credit for Saturday's victory
should be given to the forwards. In
the scrums they healed quickly and
cleanly while in the loosa they could
be depended to be on the ball at all
times. The threes took advantage of
their opportunities and broke through
the opposing back field time and
time again.
At the kickoff Rowers rushed the
ball to the Varsity line. For nve
minutes they held the students in
their own twenty-five, until Al Mercer cleared with a fine kick to touch.
The Varsity threes ran the ball to
the opposing line, but Patterson of
the Club relieved pressure by starting
a forward attack which carried the
play to centre field.
Soon after Jimmy Mitchell, Varsity
hook, sustained a kick to his solar
plexis and was forced to retire till
the end of the half. Although handicapped by playing one man short,
Varsity managed to hold the Rowers
in check. Leggat broke away on the
wing but was forced out about five
yards from the line.
With Mitchell back in the game
Varsity dominated the play in the
second half. Ken Mercer started a
play which ran the ball to the Club
25-line. Chris Dalton made a fine
effort to score on a penalty kick.
Varsity got away for a beautiful run
when Ken Mercer opened up a three
movement, the ball going from Ken
to AI Mercer to Hager to Dalton to
Mitchell who went over for the only
try of the day.   Dalton converted.
In the dying moments of the game,
the Rowers threatened seriously, but
Varsity put up a stubborn defense
and managed to stave off their efforts
till the final whistle.
Mitchell and Harry Pearson were
the pick of the forwards, both working tirelessly throughout. The threes
were passing and handling more safely than in previous games and usually drew their men before passing.
The lineup; Brand, Leggat, Hager,
Dalton, Al Mercer, Ken Mercer, Tye,
Mitchell, Pyle, Upward, Ssnuler,
Morris, Pearson, Harrison and Hurley,
2nd Team Ties
Varsity second English Rugby team
played a hard game o.i Saturday to
tie with Ex-Tech. 11-11.
The game from the opening whistle
was fast, play veering from end to
end throughout the entire time. Both
teams played hard, in fact so hard
that a fist fight enlivened the se.cond
The opening score was made by
Ex-Tech, within the first two minutes
^ of play. Varsity retaliated with a
try immediately afterwards. Both
converts were missed. The play in
the first five minutes was an indication of the whole game. First one
and then the other team would score
neither team commanding the play
for long.
In the second half both teams
scored a try, a penalty kick, and a
convert. Varsity was leading to within one minute to go when after a
series of S yard scrums an opposing
player picked up the ball and travelled the remaining yards to score.
Sanderson and Wilson were responsible for Varsity's tries. Captain
Ellis gained 5 points for Varsity when
he dropped a convert and a penalty
kick over the bar.
The Varsity team played a much
better game than they did last Saturday. The three-quarters for the
first time since the season opened,
essayed a passing attack with good
success. Maguire, McMullen and
Johnson starred in the scrum while
Carrothers and Wilson showed well
in the backfield.
The team was as follows: Armstrong, Ellis, Wilson, Sanderson.
Stead, Macdonald, Motherwell, Carrothers, McMullen, Maguire, Madeley,
Wood, Johnson, Rennie, Douglas.
By holding the league-leading West
Vancouver Rang.rs to a 2-2 draw in
a hard-fought Junior Alliance encounter on the Upper Playing Field
Saturday, Varsity Junior Soccerites
advanced two places in the league
standings. It was the first point the
Rangers had  dropped  this season.
Varsity held tha edge for the first
twenty minutes, but ploy was largely in mid-field and there was no
score. The suburban squad finally
found their feet and for the rest of
the period play was even.
Edwards opened the scoring for
the visitors with half-an-hour gone,
after a free-kick had been placed in
the Blue and Gold goal mouth. There
was no chance to save. Ten minutes
later Wedley headed a second goal
from a centre, the ball being well out
of Orme's reach. The Rangers led
2-0 at half-time.
The West Vancouver squad dominated the play in the early part of the
second half, but good play by the
Varsity halves and backs and some
good saves by Orme in goal prevented further play.
With twenty minutes to play, thc
Collegians adopted more open tactics
and begari a series of attacks. In one
of these Chester scored the first Varsity tally from just inside the penalty area. Ten minutes after, Lloyd
finished another attack with the
A minute later Irish put in a stinging drive which the Ranger goalie
barely managed to save. Furious attacks by both squads faile*d to produce a winning goal before the final
Moodie at left back tuned in a
splendid game for Varsity, while
Orme in goal, Thurber at centre-
half, and Chester and Lloyd on the
forward line did some good work.
The team; Orme, Darwin, Moodie,
Dennie, Thurber, Poisson, Irish, Go-
dard, Lloyd, Atwater, Baidwell, Chester.

Two Interclass Soccer league games
were played off over the week-end,
both ending in draws. On Friday,
Arts '35 and Arts '36 scored one goal
each, while on Monday Arts '34 and
Education failed to score a single
In the Friday game, there was no
scoring until near the end of the
game when Sutherland broke through
the Sophomore defence on a solo
effort. The equalizer was scored by
Atwater Adth only a minute of play
left. Both sides were short several
players but played fair football.
The Monday game produced pleity
of haphazard football with neither
side having the advantage. Pringle
turned in a good game at defence for
the Seniors, with Denne and Brand
also performing well. For tb'i Pedagogues, Russell was the outstanding
player, with Vollans and Osborne
showing to good advantage.

Win Easily From
B&W Oils; 37-16
Varsity In Lead For^
Entire Game
Nicholson, Horton and
Osborne Lead Scoring
Varsity Senior crew had an easy
victory over the B. and W. Oilmen
when they beat thtm by a 37-16 score
on Saturday night.
The game on the whole was fairly
fast but the. Collegians played far
better ball than B. and W. The Oily
boys are not at present up to Senior
A calibre, but a couple more strong
men and more practice ought to pull
them out of the weak sister position
in the league.
The first half was all in favor of
the Blue and Gold squad. They were
working the ball under the basket
consistently for the first time this
year, and though they missed a few
set ups, they were working some real
plays. The half time score was 15-6
in favor of the local boys.
The second half continued in the
same style and the B. and W. couldn't
decrease the lead at all. Coach Gordie Allen tried some new combinations that seemd to work fairly well
for the students. They are learning
more basketball all the time and are

Tennis In Canada!
Who   said   Canadians   play   tennis? Wisely discarding his racquet to play
Tennis in Canada is a fizzle, and it, golf this winter
to be  a fizzle   until
and  mental  attitudes
will continue
present tactics
It is not that Canadians are incapable of sport supremacy. Sandy Som-
merville recently won an American
amateur golf championship. Percy
Williams made Canadian track history by winning both sprints at the
Amsterdam Olympics. Dune. Mc-
Naughton cleared the bar for the
high jump at Los Angeles, and Jimmy McLarnin, former Canadhr, is a
boxing champion.
Tha Dominion lanks high in athletic teamwork. Simple ancl inex-
pensiva methods brought exceptional
fame to the Edmonton .leads. Canadian hockey players lead the world,
these players having developed th..
skill and strategy ot the gam. largely by instinct during youth.
But what of tennis! Now let no
one bring up these objections: that
the season is too short, or that we
must afford expensive coaching to
produce results^ What length of season is used for golf and 'rack, ancl
how considerable is thc expense of
coaching amateur basketball and hoc- j
key teams! England and Australia,
like Canada, have disadvantageous
seasonal conditions, but what about
their brand of tennis! As for actual
coaching, tennis, unlike ru^by. requires much more individual originality, and a splendid method consists
of observing better players in action,
of playing the game with them while
watching—to learn good strategy and
stroking.    Many British pros,  Bobby
To Canadian failure in playing better tennis may be attributed insufficient "aggressiveness". Our net attack and overhead kill cannot cope
with those of invading Americans. A
certain Canadian player, as a junior
was once heralded "a comer" but he
did not materialize. Though possessing fine strokes and ability, his is
almost entirely a "defensive" or
backline game. In general Canadians
incline too much to this slower pace
of game, and it is significant that one
of our Davis Cup players fell this
year before a Hollywood junior.
The backline game is characteristically English — a game of relaxation
and sport. Such an attitude continued does not tend to develop a
player fully, but it does allow much
opportunity for experimental advancement, since we know the back-
line game to be the foundation upon
which aggressive tactics are built.
Possibly such a back-ground accounts
for England's rapid rise from relative obscurity to recent world prominence. From this consideration Can-^
adian tennis can obviously advance
much further.
Again, we have not scaled the highest championship heights because of
lacking the necessary natural confidence. We possess the ability but
apparently await the setting of a precedent before we actually get going.
In other words, we have mentally resigned ourselves to an inferior game
based upon lame excuses, while with
enthusiasm exerted our opportunities

Jones, Gene Sarazen and others, all' England and Australia.   Canada must
used this very idea instinctively while
caddying as boys for good golf players.   It works for tennis, too.
Canada's only difticulty lies in developing the game earlier among
more junior material, of directing
prospects simply, and affording them
increasingly stiff senior opposition.
Learning young is even more important than considerable practice, because during youth game strategy and
more enthusiastically rather than resignedly look forward to topnotch
American invasion and benefit from
that opposition and the chance for
observation, for without doubt Canada's future hope in tennis depends
upon nothing other than more legitimate confidence instilled into an
early developed junior talent which
thrives upon more aggressive methods.     The   new   Vancouver    indoor

Enough fouls were made at this game
to last both teams all season.
C.P.R. started the game with a foul
shot. Then Varsity scored seven points
before C.P.R, put in another foul
shot, Kay Spense made one more
point to end the first half scoring at
8-2. C.P.R, didn't score a field goal
during this tim., and neither team
got going.
Idyll was fouled in the first play
of the second half and sank his shot.
Tony Vlck must have been feeling
sorry for the trainmen, because he
very kindly put in a nice shot for
them from a rebound. Patmore scored
a nice one-hand shot and Phillips
followed with a foul shot . Idyll was
put off on fouls end Alpen, brother
of Varsitys' own Fiank, scored a free
shot and C.P.R.'o first field goal.
Then he went off on fouls and the
trainmen came to life. They broke
away for a nice basket, followed,
after a reply by Varsity, hy three
quick baskets, to make the score 15-
all. Another C.P.R. player was banished on fouls before they got two
more baskets to win a very sloppy
basketball game.

getting 8 points. Although none of

Varsity Outplays New
Westminster, but fail
To Break 1-1  Tie
Although they outplayed their New
Westminster opposition in every department of the Big Four game at
Athletic Park last Saturday afternoon,
Varsity's Blue and Gold gridders
lacked the necessary final punch that
would have carried them to a decisive victory, and had to be content
with a 1-1 tie.
With perfect weather conditions in
their favor the students took command
of the play in the opening minutes,
and with the exception of three or
lour occasions were never in danger
of having their line crossed. On the
other hand the Point Grey lads time
and again carried the ball within easy
scoring distance but failed to capitalize on some golden opportunities.
Team In Good Shape
But although the game was decidedly disappointing from a league
standpoint, it nevertheless proved conclusively that the Varsity team is in
splendid shape for tha Intercollegiate
Series with the University of Alberta
this week. Rush and Kendall are at
the top of their form, the rest of the
backfield has developed into a smart
ball-handling aggregation, and for the
first time this season the whole line
played a tight defensive game and
opened plenty of holes for offensive
gains. With Saturday's game behind
them and this week's practice to iron
out the rough spots, the boys should
all be at the height of their form for
the first game Thursday night.
First Quarter AU Vanity
From the initial kick-off the students played smart football and outclassed the Royal City boys by a big
margin. The Varsity line repeatedly
repelled attempted gains through the
line, and this, coupled with smart
tackling, forced Westminster to kick
on the second or third down.
With three minutes of play left in
the first quarter, the Blue and Gold
squad missed Us first opportunity to
score. A Westminster fumble gave
Varsity possession on the former's 35-
,yard line, and Rader, who played a
consistent game, advanced the ball for
yards on two successive line plays.
Then with a touchdown in sight and
at least a certain point for a deadline
kick, the quarterback called for an
onside kick which (as almost invariably happens) was recovered by the
Trasolini relieved for Westminster
with a long kick but Varsity pressed
right back to the Royals 10-yard territory and were in possession on the
40-yard line at the end of the quarter.
Varsity Scores
In the first minute of the second
canto Price followed up a nice punt
from Kendall's toe and caught Mc-
Adam behind the line for Varsity's
first and only point. Patterson thrilled
the crowd when he recovered his own
punt to give Varsity possession Westminster's 20-yard line. Kendall attempted to capitalize with a place kick
from this position but failed and the
Royals ran the ball out. A moment
later Kendall booted over the line
again, but Trasolini saved the day
once more by bringing the ball out.
The U.B.C. boys were "hot on the
trail," but althought it seemed impossible for them not to score they missed
two set-ups inside of five minutes.
After Owen had placed the students
within easy distance on two smashing
line plays, the receiver of a nice forward pass play was out of position
and missed with the ball with a certain touchdown to go.
Doug. Mclntyre, who played a sterling game, electrified the crowd when
with less than two minutes of play in
the first half he received a punt and
eluded six tacklers on a beautiful 40-
yard run, but was penalized 10 yards
for a forward pass on the Westminster
goal line. A fumble on the next play
and a blocked kick once more blasted
Varsity's hopes of scoring, and the
half ended with the score 1-0.
Forward Pass Plays Fall

have been different indeed, had the

Alberta Hopes_
To Wrest Hardy__
Cup From U.B.C.
Western  Intercollegiate  Series  Revived —
U.B.C. Last Winner Two Years Ago—
Second Game Saturday
For the first time in two years, intercollegiate football returns to western Canada!
The Hardy Cup, symbolic of western intercollegiate supremacy, has been in U. B. C. territory since Manitoba lost it
to a fighting Blue and Gold squad back in 1931'. The score was
close, the final game reading 4-3.
Whether or not this university is entitled to continue possessing the Hardy Cup will be decided by a two-game, total-
points series in Athletic Park this week, when Varsity's Blue
and Gold will fight it out with the  to the game, the Pep Club and the
University of Alberta's famous 'Golden Bears."
The first game is scheduled to take
place this Thursday night under the
lights at eight o'clock, while the second will take place Saturday, Remembrance Day, at 2:00 o'clock,
Nothing has been spared in order
to put this series over with a "bang";
the Pep Club, the Pub office, the Alma Mater executives, the Canadian
Rugby Club, the Players' Club, all
the fraternities and sororities and
hosts of other campus organizations
are working night and day in order
to boost the ticket sales to the maximum.
In the way of features, preparatory
Canadian Rugby Club have gone to
no end of trouble to work out an
extensive program. There will be a
radio jamboree, a mammoth Pep meeting this Thursday, a special student
welcoming delegation at the station
Thursday morning, and possibly a
Pep Rally Thursday night.
At the game, both on Thursday
and Saturday, there will be a band
and a special Varsity Rooting section,
along with a half time feature of an
Arts-Science Tug o' War. Following
the game Saturday, the Women's Undergrad are arranging a special Tea
Dance at the Peter Pan, in honor of
the visiting Albertans.

Prime Minister  Bennett Host
To Rugby Team and Officials
At Palliser Hotel
While in Calgary, the University of
Alberta Rugby team was royally entertained at a banquet in the Palliser Hotel by Prime Minister Bennett.
During the afternoon the Premier
displayed a great interest in the national fall pastime, and asked many
questions about the game. He mentioned the fact that the first time
that he and Mackenzie King met was
on a rugby field (no one asked who
won). He had much to say about the
manner in which sport builds up the
morale of the people in the Old
Country, where 80,000 recently attended a football game in London.
At the banquet he told of the many
fine qualities rugby develops in those
playing. He said the first of these
was team-work and discipline. A
play's success depends on each man
following the quarter's orders, and
then using his own initiative as best
he can to reach the desired objective.
Mr. Bennet also spoke of the value
of training, and emphasized the fact
that dissipation could not be mixed
with strenuous sport.
That this kind gesture was fully
appreciated was illustrated by the
attention that everyone paid to Mr.
Bennett, and the hearty applause
given both on his arrival and his
goes on.

clicked. Kendall attempted no less
than live passes in this period, none of
which were completed. If coaches
Doc Burke and Joe Price can figure
out a way to work these aerial plays,
Varsity's chances would increase
greatly in any game.
Trasolini nearly spelled disaster for
the students in this canto when he
returned a punt over fifty yards, and
almost got away for a touchdown.
Varsity held, however, and pushed the
Fraser River boys back to their own
half of the field.
Royal City Team Scores
In the final quarter neither team
showed much class, although Varsity
was tackling well. Fumbling was prevalent on the New Westminster side
but Sammy Aivazoff proved valuable,
recovering many times. The Royals
pressed more often in this period, but
U.B.C. held by good tackling.
Then with only two minutes to go,
Trasolini punted 40 yards to Varsity's
dead line to even the count. The next
minute they were in position to score
again, but Mclntyre saved the students from what would have been a
bitter defeat when he ran back a punt
35 yards, and play ended in mid-field.

It is an encouraging sign that young men
of recognized ability and public spirit are taking an active interest in politics. The profession has lately been considered in a somewhat
unfavorable light. The new members elected
to the provincial legislature show promise of
imparting a new lease of life to our somewhat
moribund assembly at Victoria.
The University is fortunate in having two
good friends among the new members. Both
Dr. Weir and Dr. Allan Harris have displayed
their abilities on the campus.
A great deal of political capital was made
over the youth of Dr .Harris. It seems a ridiculous thing that electors should consider this
fact a detriment in a candidate possessing the
recognized ability of Dr. Harris. The very fact,
however, that he was able to defeat two very
prominent and estimable opponents shows,
however, that a good part of the electorate
recognize that youth is an asset rather than a
detriment in a politician. The new members
should be free from the foggy prejudices and
doubtful associations that cling to so many professional politicians.
They have the good wishes of all thinking
University students in their new field of activity.
Our poor little friend Peter the Ape is disconsolate. We had a brand new picture of him
for his column last week, and when it arrived at the printers it was too big.
However, we gave him a cocoanut to chew
and promised that the picture would be ready
today. In fact we wrote an editorial about it
And now once more we have to disappoint
poor Pete. The engravers slipped" up again and
the picture did not arrive. Peter was so mad he
heaved his cocoanut at his old friend Arthur.
And we were mad too because we had to
write another editorial. And this is it.
Not enough attention is being given one of
the most ambitious and energetic organizations on the campus. The Parliamentary Forum, under the presidency of Ernest Brown,
has in the past produced some of the finest
intercollegiate debating teams in Canada.
Last year the achievements of the Forum
did not escape the public eye. A visiting Imperial debating team barely escaped defeat at
the hands of the U. B. C. team, Victor Dryer
and Neil Perry, by a very close margin. The
University of Alberta received a stinging defeat in an intercollegiate radio debate soon
And now, although another scheduled radio
debate with Alberta failed to gain official
ratification from Canadian Radio Commission
headquarters in Toronto, the Forum has gone
on to plan for an important verbal tussle with
Stanford on November 17.
Any handicap under which the Forum may
have suffered by not gaining large student audiences for their fortnightly Tuesday debates,
which have been in themselves of remarkably
interesting character from any standpoint,
should be overcome by the fact that the Stanford meet will take place on a Friday.
There is no reason why the entire student
body should not turn up on this occasion. The
Parliamentary Forum has done its share and
more in advertising the University of B. C.
Now let the University of B. C. do its part in
supporting the Forum in its efforts against

a cold super-reporter.
This, in our opinion the most terrible of all
wai* books, is nothing more or less than a
straight photographic record of events in the
Great War.
The work of collection filled three years.
Painstaking research was carried on both in
Europe and America, and the results, the verified photographs that make up the book, were
arranged in as near chronological order as possible.
One can say little of the pictures — they
speak for themselves. Guns in Flanders, the
quick and the dead, barrages flaming like the
wrath of God, and mad crowds in London,
Berlin, New York. Terrible as we have said
before, a record of horror and doubtful glory,
with a poignancy over all that goes deeper than
any words.
Laurence Stallings, who edited the collection, is to be commended on his fine impartiality. Friend and enemy appear on the same
page; indeed, before one has gone far into the
book, he has almost ceased to distinguish.
Sailings, "participant observer and student of
the history of the world-war," has a well-
developed sense of the fitness of things. His
captions are short, crisp, and lucid. Ironical,
too, striking the reader with epigrammatical
Interesting also is the use made of war cartoons and propaganda. Among the pictures
are cartoons reproduced from papers of most
of the nations involved, and with them the
flaring eight-column lines and six-column
heads of the war-time press.
Compiled fifteen years after the Armistice,
this book neither praises nor blames. It simply
sets forth things as they were, holding them
up in a cold, clear light.
And this bald presentation of facts is denunciation enough.
Dead Orchard
An orchard - - - dead, forsaken, and forgotten !
The rain came down, a sodden harvester
Who, with grey palsied fingers, plucked the
Or passed it by to wither on the branch.
A row of poplars stood against the wind
(Poor thin grey ghosts)—poor thin grey wraiths
of trees)
Who   watched   night come, and   flung grey
arms on high
Until the moon,  aghast,  swooned  from  the
scene. —K.
A Magic Song
When the last of the long-tailed demons was
The Master of Saghalie Illahee
Crossed from the land on the western sea
By the Bridge of the Gods, to his home again.
And over the Bridge, who should there be
But the furry little red mountain hare
Alone and weeping most bitterly there
In the meadows of Saghalie Illahee.
"Now why do you weep?" the Tyee said
"Are you not safe in the meadow-grass
From the beasts that prowl and the wings that
While below you would very soon be dead?"
The little red hare cried out in his woe,
"You have sent all the rest of the beasts away
Far over the Bridge of the Gods to Play,
And I want, oh I want very much to go!"
Then the Master of Saghalie Illahee
Who loves great beasts and little as well
Breathed three times over a magic spell,
And, "You shall go down to play," he said.
"Look! I have altered your coat of red
And, up to your ears in the meadow-grass
You shall lie close-hid from the wings that pass
In a furry jacket of brown instead.
And when the summer has spread her wings,
Clad all in a marvellous robe of white
You shall dance for me in the winter night,
Unseen by the hungry, prowling things."

There is no doubt that a Socialist
government is coming in England,
ihe MacDonald regime is rapidly
Milking into a morass under the
weight of its own majority. The intellectuals of the Labor Party are
preparing to take over power, and
heie they present their case in a series of lectures made to the Fabian
Society late in 1932.
Harold J. Laski, Sir Stafford Cripps,
S. K. Radcliffe, Hugh Dalton, A. L.
nowse, and lastly the redoubtable
Bernard Shaw explain the new planned economy. Their program should
serve to stir the complacency of the
timorous and conservative. The new
Socialism is to have none of the
luke-warm ineffectiveness of the two
previous Labor experiments. It is
going to administer a jolt to the
whole British theory of government.
There is no doubt that a Socialist
scheme has a decided appeal. No
one can read this brilliant exposition
without declaring "Almost thou per-
suadeth me to be a Socialist."
The catch lies in the word "almost." In our mind the case is over-
presented. It smacks too much of
the Fascist. The British public is too
stubborn to be put under the heel of
a single party and that is what Sir
Stafford Cripps and his trends propose.
For instance, he says, "Once the
party is in power it will have to be
ruthless as regards Individuals. That
should be for us the great lesson of
the Russian experiment.    Those vvho
' do    not    devote    themselves    whole-
■' huarteclly to active propaganda of the
! Plan   must  not   be  allowed   to   have
the power to hand over thc fortress
! to the forces of capitalism."
!    And   again,   "Whoever    the    Prime
; Minister m_y  bo,  he  will  be of  no
importance as an individual, but only
' as representing the party."
I    Now Sir Stafford  is very vigorous
in deprecating th. idea of a personal
dictatorship of thc individual, but it
would   appear   as   if   he    were   only
substituting   the   dictatorship   of ,the
party.    On  the surface  there seems
little to choose between them.
Whatever may be one's political
views, these lectures are extremely
thought-provoking. A definite plan
of parliamentary, financial and industrial re-organization is outlined.
The futile doctrine of laisser-faire is
effectively disproved.
j The book is well worth reading if
for no other reason than because of
Shaw's witty and provocative essay
'In Praise of Guy Fawkes.' The old
iconoclast repudiates his Fabian traditions and dares to advocate the abolition of Parliament. He only wishes that Guy Fawkes had been successful in his purpose three hundred
years ago. The world would have
been saved a lot of bilge and hot air
from subsequent Parliamentarians.
By all means, let us blow up Parliament, says Mr. Shaw. But docs Mr.
Shaw mean it?

a grin as he helped himself liberally.
