VOL. XVII.
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1934
No. 1
President
Welcomes
Freshmen
"Why should the state continue to
expend money on people who will
probably be unable to support themselves after graduation," asked President Klinck \a his welcoming address
to this year's freshmen class in the
auditorium Monday afternoon. "To
the man who is Incapable of taking
the long view, or who is unwilling
to do so, it is not an easy task to
make a convincing reply.
"And just because this question
cannot be answered easily, there rests
upon each one of you the responsibility of seeing that no opportunity is
neglected of utilizing to the fullest
extent the facilities which the University, through the generosity of the
people of British Columbia, has made
possible with your assistance, on
practically a 50-50 basis, you to contribute your time, gratis, your board
and lodging, and defray all incidental expenses."
Dr. Klinck outlined the plans of
the Freshman Organization Committee, and also leferred to the $2000
available for bursaries and scholarships this year.
The President announced that he
was happy to see that all hough for
the past few years' the registration
has been dropping, this year it is
again on the increase. He attributed
the decrease to the extension of the
high school course and the giving of
senior matriculation besides the
greater cost of attending the University and the general effects of the
depression.
The registrar announces the following figures: Faculty of Arts and Science, 946; Faculty of Applied Science,
206; Faculty of, Agriculture, 47; Nursing, 43; Graduates, 16; Teachers'
Training Course, 49; students who
have registered and paid registration
fee but who have not filled in details in registration booklet, 273;
others, 32; tot.il, 1,612. The total for
'33-34 was 1,458.
Frosh Meet
Campus Gods
The triumphant braying of sophs,
the bobbing jf green-covered heads,
the dignified inarch of the chronically tardy council, the inevitable failure of freshmen to stand and the
succeeding bombardment of imprecations from the galleries — such
scenes, each aa integral part of the
traditional Student Council welcome
were re-enacted at a noon-hour meeting in the Auditorium, Wednesday.
Murray Ma [her, A.M.S. president,
Uke Demosthenes of old, gathering
his robes about him, introduced to the
Frosh, the various members of the
council, all of whom were present
except Jim Feiris, who had relinquished his pose of Junior Member.
Freshettes Welcomed
Claire Brown, President of the
W.U.S., welcomed the Freshettes and
encouraged them "to contribute a
small portion to the life of the University." Walter Kennedy, M. U. S.
president, carefully outlined the rules
regarding the "wearing of the green."
He confided to the freshmen the danger of being found by the sophs
without this symbol of Inexperience.
Managerial System Outlined     •
After announcing a meeting of the
W.A.S, in Arts 100 Monday noon, Jean
Thomas expressed the wish that those
entering the University should receive the enjoyment she herself had
obtained from Athletics. Fred Bolton, speaking for the M.A.S., briefly
outUned the new "Managerial System" in his world of Athletics, and
mentioned the indispensability of Athletic Insurance.
In concluding the meeting, John
Sumner, President of the L.S.E., emphasized to the gathering the very
important part which thc clubs under his jurisdiction played in justifying to the public the cultural training
gained at the University.
JUNIOR MEMBER

After being elected last spring to
the position of Junior Member, Jim
Ferris has handed in his resignation
to Council. Th'. leaves the office of
Junior Member vacant for the coming year and recessitates an early

Players Club
To Be Active
This Season
SPRING TOUR IS
IN PROSPECT
With spring play budget completed,
prospects of a tour, and the four
best Christmas plays for years, the
Players' Club executive held its first
meeting on Wednesday with a feeling
of optimism and a determination to
work hard.
But this was mixed with sadness
for the death of Dr. F. C. Walker,
beloved honorary president, whose
help and encouragement to the club
had a value which can never be estimated. A memorial to him is the
first undertaking of this year.

Frosh Initiation
Horrors Recalled
Zoe Browne-Clayton    -
Self-concious freshettes who strike peculiar attitudes to hide
the vividly-colored lower limb, raise your voices in rejoicings
that you didn't see fit to enter these portals some ten years
ago. This also concerns the freshmen who dream nightly of
a closer acquaintance with the frogs.
Wearing Of Green
Commences Today
PLACARDS TO BE WORN IN FRONT
CHILDREN'S PARTY FOR FRESHETTES
Dr. Kaye Lamb
Gets New Post
Distinguished Graduate Appointed
B. C. Archivist
Initiation, ono of the oldest traditions of the University, has, according to the Seniors ancl graduates,
gone to the dogs, with the rest of
civilization.
In 1919 the Initiation was a jolly
little function, looked forward to by
all the "students," and more feared
by the cafes and theatres down town
who endured more than the freshmen. In that year, Purdy's was the
chief sufferer; th* student., commandeered its sanctified halls for the purpose of a feed and general merrymaking.
In 1920, however, things began to
assume a more natural aspect. The
Frosh were immersed in cold water
in the old Science buildings in Fair-
view.
Musical Society
To Stage Opera
With an opera practically decided
upon, the Musical Society is already
making preparations for another successful year. After scoring a triumph
in last year's production of Gilbert
and Sullivan's "Mikado," this capable
group hope to improve in their efforts and mak. this year's opera an
even greater success.
It has been unofficially announced
that C. Haydn Williams will be Director for this year. Mr. Williams,
an accompished soloist, teacher, and
conductor, has each year given a
great deal of his time ancl effort in
producing a success,
He has acted as Director of 9 of
the Society's 14 annual productions,
and tho musical parts of each program have be.m a direct result of his
labor.
The Society is able to welcome tho
return of Alice Rowe, leading soprano, Margaret Atkinson, Jean Fraser, Gordon Herc.n, Ellis Todd, and
many others wli-i have worked faithfully with th's organization in past
years.
The Executive body for the session
1934-35    is    comprised    of   Honorary

Frosh Are Paddled
Two years late: it was officially decided that the Frosh were too fresh
and a little paddling might help to
toughen them. Next year their foreheads were turned into imitation
rainbows and they were sent downtown to amuse the populace,
The snake parade ot 1927 showed
what a determined student body can
really do. Tlie students started at the
Strand Theatre to the strains of
"Hail! Hail!" and then went to the
old Pantages, then a Chop Suey
House, and finally the Canada beer
parlor.
Human Police
The line of .tudents extended over
four blocks, street cars were pulled
off the lines, automobiles were
rocked till the occupants were sick
or got out of the way. Instead ot
doing their duty and protecting helpless citizens the police joined in the
general fun and assisted the students
if the cars resisted. "O" for those
vanished days!
It wasn't till 2930 however, that the
true spirit of initiation revealed itself to the sophs in all its glory. The
higher powers had seen fit to forbid
all down-town revelry but a snake
parade was ctuged just the same.
That, however, was a minor part of
the fun. Before the parade the freshmen were all blindfolded and arranged in a long line. First, each
was fed a handful of cold slippery
spaghetti which had* been cooked ancl
then clipped i.i linseed oil. Tlie whole
affect was decidely wormy.
In order to impress on their minds
what a low foini of life they really
were, they nex: rolled peanuts with
their noses before receiving generous
applications of r.cids, oils, plaster of
Paris, original hair cms ancl paddling. Any surplus energy left was
consumed by a long pai-ide through
the business sections to China town
A similar function took place in
1931 and still is a vivid memory to
many of our staid senior; vvho were
the last to .suffer gloriously for the
ancient tradition of initiation which
now seems to be in a permanent do
cline.
Perhaps it is just as well for the
Frosh!
The freshmen's initiation into college life began yesterday
with the wearing of the placard, and green cap for the men,
and the placard, hair ribbon and green stocking for the girls.
An innovation this year is the wearing of the placard in front
instead of behind. This allows for a litle co-ordination between
name and face.
<S> Athletics wiU be brought before the
notice of the freshmen on Monday
when tht heads of the various athletic clubs will address '.hem at noon
in the gym. The first clash between
the arch-enemies, the Frosh and the
Soph, comes on Tuesday, Oct. 9,
when they match their respective
strengths in a tug-of-war.
The traditional Cairn Ceremony
will take place at eight o'clock on
the morning of October 9. In this
ceremony the continued efforts of the
students in tho old buildings at Fair-
view are commemorated. Beneath
the cairn are buried the signatures
of the thousands of people who
backed up the effort of the students
and signed a petition to the government for an increased grant.
Women Also Participate
The Senior 1'reshette tea, to which
Freshettey will be escorted by their
Big Sisters, will take place on October 2, from 3:30 to 5:30 in the gym.
The following day a tea will be
given for out-of-town members of
Arts '38 and one on Oct. 10 for members of Arts '.?
This year Big and Little Sisters
will be entertained in the Caf. for
supper in plac; of the candlelight -
ing ceremony of former years on the
evening of Oct. 10. Frechettes will
come dressed as children and the refreshments and entertainment will be
reminiscent of a children's party.
Frosh
The initiation program for freshmen and fre.hettes will culminate
in the annual frosh reception on Oct.
12 when the Class of '38 will become
full-fledged members of the University.
Increased
Attendance
The recent appointment of Dr.
Kaye Lamb to the position of provincial librarian and archivist, in
succession to the late John Hosie,
marks public lecognition of one of
the most brilliant graduates from the
University of British Columbia,
DrJ Lamb, ., member of Arts '27,
received both degrees of B.A. and
M.A. from this university with first
clas honors in History. After lecturing for one year under the Department of History, he was awarded the
Nicol Scholarship — entitling him to
three years' study at the Sorbonne,
Paris, under tho distinguished historian,  Professor  Andre  Siegfried.
From Paris le proceeded to the
University of 1/ondon, England, where
he spent two academic years in the
preparation of his doctor's thesis on
the subject: "The Genesis of the
British Labour Party." At London
he worked under the direction of the
politically prominent Professor Howard Lackey.
His qualifications for tlie positions
of pro/incial librarian and archivist
have been considerably augmented by
first-hand experience in the libraries
of the Bibliotheque Nationale and
Musee Social at Paris—in the libraries of the British Museum, and University library ot Cambridge, and in
the Bisnop's Gate library at London,
Dr. Lamb resigned his recent appointment as j-.'istant in the Department of History at this university in
order to take up his new duties. To
his new office he carries the best
wishes of his Alma Mater.

Carrothers, who is on leave of absence, Mr. W. Taylor will take the
post of professor of economics.
Mr. F J. Mrand ha. returned from

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1934
LET'S GO, FROSH!
We are glad to be able to welcome you,
Freshmen of Arts '38, because the university
needs you. The student body looks each year
to the Freshman Class to inject new spirit into
its activities. We require you as a stimulant
to 'pep us up" out of our lethargy.
Be enthusiastic about your student activities. Feel that you are as much as anybody
else responsible for the reputation and achievements of your Alma Mater in every sphere-
including scholarship. Give your loyal support to any projects which your various executives may undertake, for without that they
are helpless.
This may be idealism, but we need ideals.
And if you try to live up to them you are
bound to make this a better university, and
you are bound to benefit more from it yourselves.
DR. WALKER
All who have had the good fortune of
acquaintance with the man must regret the
passing early last summer of Dr. F. C. Walker,
Associate Professor of English. His sincerity,
his cheerful nature and his willingness to help'
at all times were especially appreciated by
those students who came in daily contact with
him in the lecture room, and also by those
who found his help invaluable in the activities
of the Players Club and the Letters Club.
His kindly interest in his pupils was exemplified by the fact that it was his custom
every spring to invite all the members of his
Anglo-Saxon class to a Saturday afternoon
social gathering at his home.
Of the Players Club he was, during the past
two or three years, honorary president, and
was himself talented in amateur theatricals.
And for the Letters Club he acted loyally for
many years as critic, pointing out the weaknesses in each paper, but at the same time not
forgetting to give praise where it was deserved.
To his widow, also a loyal supporter of university activities, we extend our sympathy, and
to him, a scholar and a gentleman, we pay this,
our belated tribute.
NOMINATIONS, PLEASE!
For the third time in the last four years
the Junior Member has resigned at the begin-
ing of the fall term, necessitating a special election for the filling of this office.
As the actual duties of the Junior Member consist chiefly of directing the initiation of
Freshmen and the Homecoming program, it
would appear that his office is a relatively unimportant one, and that it is therefore of small
importance who is elected. The fact that the election is held in the fall after the rest of the
Council have already been functioning for five
months also tends to dull the student interest
in the matter.
The real significance of the office, however, is
the fact that it is the most logical stepping stone
to the presidency of the Alma Mater Society, as
the Junior Member is usually the only man
with previous experience on Council who is
eligible for the latter office. Such experience
is undeniably a strong point in the favor of any
candidate, and it is therefore well to realize
We jubilantly join in the omnipresent, Welcome to the Frosh, and devoutly hope that they
have been prepared for it. Of course, as explained, it isn't their fault, anyway, so we
extend our sincere sympathy.
Having recently become conscious of the
mellowing effect of advancing age, the Crab
has adopted the more appropriate title to be
observed at the head of this column.
At the same time, the wary editor-in-chief
requires me to warn all and sundry that he's
responsible neither for my opinions, sentiments
nor statements. Take warning, my dear infants, and never get yourself a reputation—at
least like mine. You can't live it down, no
matter how hard you "go Oxford."
It is one of the signs of my decaying virulence that I can look upon this year's crop of
Frosh with no more than the normal amount
of repugnance that one experiences in examining such unformed and embryonic foeti-
Of course, coming into actual contact with
them on the walks and in the corridors is really
more shocking than meeting them preserved
in alcohol in an herbalistic dispensary, but
they are not to be blamed for that.
The responsibility lies with the Student's
Council. With the usual perspicacity of a
democratic government, they are ignorant of
any remedy for one extreme of conduct except that of rushing to the other. True, this
course will usually remove the evils which
have been a source of complaint, but, to one
not blinded by the responsibilities of office, it
would appear that a more moderate reaction
would be less likely to substitute new abuses*
for the old, or destroy what beneficial effects
the previous state of affairs produced.
It is admitted that the old system of initiation was more or less a survival of primitive
barbarism, but its rigours did impress upon
the unspeakable Frosh some equally primitive
virtues. He learned respect for his betters, the
seniors, juniors and (possibly) sophomores. He
learned to speak when he was spoken to, and
to keep his thumb out of his mouth when he
was talking. It gradually dawned upon him
that the cultured product of a modern university put his lunch scraps in the wastebasket
instead of on the floor, and he at least looked
around for a cuspidor before he spat.
Above all, he learned the lesson of class
loyalty and co-operative achievement through
the solidarity of his class ranks.
We changed the system, ancl the results
changed accordingly. Any callow freshman
who can scrape through a junior matric quiz
considers himself the equal of any senior on
the campus, even though he still has to be sent
home to get his nose wiped. Any blue-eyed,
blonde-haired, brainless baby-doll, once she
gets rid of her green stockings, dreams of herself as the local equivalent of Cleopatra and
Madame de Stael combined.
As for the class organizations, the backbone of Varsity achievements in extra-curricular activities, they have degenerated into
ineffectual convening committees for annual
dances, most of which are complete flops.
The Cairn was built about the time initiation began to be emasculated. It was designed
as a memorial to the achievements of earlier
students, mostly effected through class organizations. It might well serve as a tombstone
for our hopes of ever emulating them.
As I remarked above, I do not blame the
Frosh. They cannot help being an insufferable, conceited, soupy-minded lot of infantile
atrocities—that is the fault of their age and
training. We were that way once—and a good
many still are.
What they need is a proper course of snubbing, nose-rubbing and repression, with as
much violence as is necessary to teach them
the proper humble station of grubby little
Frosh, and no more. This, I believe, is a moderate and sensible proposal, and will be endorsed by all fair minded people, and even
such Frosh as possess rudimentary intelligence.
Let us prepare to put it into effect next year.
Having joined heartily into the local custom of Frosh welcoming, I regret that I have
no space in which to extend the hand of fraternal greeting to my numerous old friends
that have returned to our local culture factory. Of course they have not yet had time
to present me with sufficient material for a
column, but I hope that by next week they will
have remedied this lack.

ON THE SOCK EXCHANGE
that our interest and judgment or lack of inter
est and judgment at this time may be the factor which decides whether we are to have good
or bad leadership during the Session 1935-36.
We hope that the number of nominations for
this election will be in proportion to its true
importance.
Here   is   a   limpid   bit   of   pathos
gleaned   from   the   Pacific   Weekly
from Stockton, California.   With new
life  stirring  on  the  campi  all  over
North America, its social significance
mak.s you stop to think.   Can it herald the new day, or is it the croon-
ings of a lovesick gazelle to its mate?
Or the last cry of the desperate sailor  going down for  the third  time?
(No cracks  about  tha  cider  in  the
basement).    Hare  it is:
Why,  cellar door,
Greeb in whossle?

might as well have your fun.
The Daily Californian from Berkley
comes out this week with a supplement of twelve pages d.voted to the
adornment of tho person, both male
and female. Tlie number of clothes
will, we feel certain, stil remain practically constant and in inverse proportion to tho t,umber of occupants
of the fraternity and sorority house.
Furriers have banned the swagger
coat, they say. And that do-.sn't
mean just in fur coats but in all
coats. "The old swagger coat," they
say, "is dead." If mink we certainly
hope so. "In Die flurry of fall fashions," they continue, "tno new 38-
inch length for tbe casual coat makes
its debut. The coat is entirely without buttons". Lots of people have
one of those. "It has a sunburst effect starting at the shoulders and
carried through it_t length and is made
of several colors of kid." The oldest
book in the world mentions one of
those.
They also say that Oxford men are
the worst dressed and the best shod
collegiates in tiie world.
For men they advocate the new bi-
swing backed suit with or without
checks (not however, cheques). So
if you see any men on' this campus
bi-swin_ backing, you'll know It's
just the fashion and not the mentality.
A no re in the paper also reveals a
far-reaching innovation. "Tweed
Hankies to be used this Fall," a headline says. If you've got to cry, sister,
don't use my r.'.ce tweed fur-trimmed
hanky.   It shrii.ks.

COFFINS, CANS AND COAL*
PRODUCED DURING SUMMER
Many and varied are the stories
circulating around the campus these
days concerning the lucrative or otherwise jobs which some students engaged in during the holidays.
Several were fortunate enough to secure positions in offices, but, for the
most part, the money-earners gathered in the shekels by the sweat of their
manly brows.
Here's a Future Brewer
Al Breen was fortunate enough to
work in the factory of the Capilano
Brewing Company, where it is said
he consumed untold gaUons of a certain foamy Uquid; many, however,
doubt his stories because of his failure
to bring back samples among our midst.
Former Frosh President Makes Cans
Freth Edmonds, president of last
year's Freshmen class, turned out 150,-
000 cans per day in the American Can
Company's factory, while BiU Rae
spent his summer chipping cement off
old steam boilers. ■
Paul Clement turned bis skiU into
the financial line and worked at the
Stock Exchange for a while.
Murray Little and Sid McMuUen
descended into the depths of the earth
this summer and amused themselves
chopping coal.
Temp Hatcher and Morley Fox had a
different experience by working fourteen hours a night in a box factory
at Ruskin unUl the machines broke
down and made them members of the
unemployed again.
Laurie McHugh and Harry Berry
worked in fish canneries and stiU reek
of the odor of dead salmon, much to
the disgust of their classmates.
Science Men Again
Among several other Sciencemen.
Oeorge Minns worked in a lumber
camp by day and probably played
poker by night. Jerry Potts went fishing again this summer, but was not as
successful this year; he did manage to
catch a 27-foot shark, however.
I Doubtless the most unusual employment engaged ln this summer was
that of Don Hogg. He learned a lot by
working in a casket factory, of all
places.
The tangible results of this manual
employment are seen in the rippling
muscles displayed by these members
of the stronger sex upon their return
to the University.
HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Historical Society has a few
vacancies reserved for fall applications. AppUcations are open to students Interested in historical studies

A new source of revenue has been

Having nothing better to look at
while dejectedly touring the desolate
wastes of the Pub Office yesterday, the
despairing editor finally chose the
faithful old cardboard rubbish box
beside the radiator as a source of inspiration for his weary gaze.
It suddenly dawned on his sense,
that a crumpled scrap of paper in that
box had a very distantly and hazily

investigate and his Interest received a
sudden and violent stimulation on the
discovery that the box contained no

fObituary J
DR. F. C. WALKER
No person ever took less
pains than did Professor Francis Cox Walker to put himself
forward, but in his thirteen
years at the University of British Columbia he became one
of the best-known figures in
the place. He had come to be
regarded—it would amuse him
to hear it—as a sort of permanent institution: indeed, one
can hardly grasp the thought
of his not returning. But "institution" is not at all the right
word. Who would seriously
suggest anything impersonal in
describing him? For he had a
personality if ever there was
one. No one else will be able
to relieve a heavy situation in
Faculty meeting by a happy
foolishness solemnly uttered.
No one is likely to contrive
such helpful and elegant nonsense as his scheme for remembering Anglo-Saxon versification: •
"Anglo-Saxons
Besotted folk
Composed verses,
Darned tongue-twisters
Done Walker-wise,
End-rhyming barred."
Probably no one else will
make  a  sketching-pencil  do
double service  as defense
against boredom and delight
to his friends.   And not many
people   can   be   at   once   so
matter-of-fact   and  so  sensitively thoughtful, so individual
in nature and at the same time
so strictly loyal to fellowship
and duty.    The Faculty, his
colleagues in the English Department,   his   students,   the
Players' Club and the Letters
Club will not forget him.   He
was a rare soul.

Players' Club Back
For Active Year
(Continued from Page 1)
terest freshmen and others in the
club, and the opportunities for new
members are particularly good this
year, as the executive will enforce a
dormant clause in the constitution
which provides that all members m
their fourth yeer who ure not prepared to try out for the spring play
must resign active membership, leaving room for others.
The strong probability that the annual spring toui may be revived
gives every member a chance to see
the world by getting into the spring
play.
Experience Unnecessary
Past experience on the stage is not
the slightest bit necessary for membership in tho Players' Club. All that
intending membors have to do is to
write their nam* and year on a slip
of paper and drop it in a box at the
north end of the Arts Building. If
they wish to join as technical members, and work on the stage or do
scenery and costume designing, this
should be staled on the appliiation,
as technical members are not admitted by competitive try-outs of their
acting promise, but by interview
with the executive.
Try-outs Wednesday
The would-be actors will receive
their try-out scripts at the meeting
in Arts 100 on Wednesday next. At
the same time they will be given
some general hints on acting and will
be assigned partners with whom to
rehearse. This year there ,will be no
mixed couples in the try-outs, as the
old quarrel scene between Sir Peter
and Lady Teazl. has been replaced
by new parts with greater scope for
acting.
Any who desire coaching in their
try-out parts should get in touch
with the president, Margaret Powlett,
or other members of the executive.
Leave a note on the Playrs' Club no-
tic board in the Arts Building or call
at the Green Room (upstairs at the
rear of the Auditorium).

Men Handsome
Says Vivian Hood
Vivian Hood of the University of
Alberta is the exchange student attending U.B.C. this session. She is
no stranger, having taken her First
Year Arts here in 1928. The following year, however, she left college
to teach school on the prairies. Last
year, Vivian returned to CoUege, attending the University of Alberta
where she won the exchange scholarship which brought her to U.B.C. for
third year Arts.
She plans to return to her home
university next year to obtain her
B.A., majoring in English and minor-
ing In Education. She is very interested in Dramatics and Tennis, joining our Players' Club back in '28 and
winning the semi-finals in the Fall
Tennis Tournament at Alberta.
'Men Just As Handsome"
Comparing the two universities, she
said that the men here ure younger,
wealthier, and "just as handsome."
At Alberta, most of the students have
to work their own way through;
many teaching in rural schools for
a few years before completing their
courses. Vivian was awe-stricken
when .he saw all the student-owned
cars on the campus—there being comparatively few at Alberta.
Prefers U.B.C. Site
"Although tiie University of Alberta is situated on one of the most
beautiful sites in Edmonton, on the
banks of the Saskatchewan River, I
prefer the magnificent scenery and
setting at the West Point Grey location ot U.B.C," stated Vivian Hood.

Major Sport Executives Optomistic
<&>-
Looks Like Big Year For Varsity Sport
Large Turnout For Teams
Reports from major sport executives indicate that prospects are good for all five teams. Losses of players through
graduation are less this year than for some time. Practises in
all sports except basketball have been going on for the past
week or so, and coaches are fast lining up some of the strongest
teams that the University has ever turned out. The managerial
system is functioning for the first time this year and indications
are that it will be a distinct success.
Canadian Rugby Team Will Play American Colleges
With twelve men of last year's
squad returning, and a very promis
ing crop of freshmen reporting, Varsity has a very strong team lined up
for its first attempt at America^.1
Rugby. The first game will be against
Washington State Normal on Oct. 6
at Athletic Park. The Club has announced that a monster Pep meeting will be staged for this game on
the fifth. Such .tars as Bolton, Rush,
Keilor, and Kendall are back from
last year's team. Twiss from Magee
is probably the most promising freshman recruit. Two others who have
shown up well at practice are Preston from Byng and Jagger from King
Ed. Doc Burke will agan coach the
team, assisted by Bill Morrow.      '
While the other teams are practicing daily in preparation for the first
games, the bask at ball boys are forced
to wait until the middle .>f next week
for their first turn-out. The basketball floor will not be ready till
Thursday.
Six of last year's first string players have declared their intention of
playing again thi" season. Jim Bardsley, Dick Wright, Art Wiiloughby,
Oeorge Pringle, Tom Mansfield and
Oeorge McKee are back and will
form the nucleous of this year's team.
Among the freshmen who intend to
play are Jim Osborne, brother of
Bob Osborne, captain of last year's
team, ind Jack Ross, Jim's team-mate
last year on the B. and W. team. New
Westminster contributes Eric Schoe-
field. Ralph Henderson is playing
Canadian Rugby, and Frank Hay is
not returning. The team will enter
the newly formed Inter-City League,
playing eight fames each term. A
knock-out series will ha staged first

The Track Club will open the fall
season with the annual Frosh versus
Upper Class Meet a week from next
Wednesday. The Frosh as usual remain the dark horse until after the
meet but the Upper Classmen look
forward to fielding a strong team. Included in th. lis: of last year's track-

cinders are: Max Stewart, Herb. Barclay, Bill Stott Phil. Northcott, Gordie Heron, Joe Roberts, Ron Allen,
KUnkhammer, Harvey, Sinclair and

The strength of the Frosh remains
a mystery. Those mentioned as being
threats  are  Boothby,  a  miler  from
Mission, Mansfield Beach, a distance
runner from Lord Byng and Art Sutton, a High Jumper,
Soccer chances for the coming season appear rosy from advance reports. At the initial turnout on Wednesday, prospective Soccerites to the
number of thirty were on hand, the
largest turnout in the history of soccer. In addition a large proportion
of last year's team are returning and
several former players who were not
here last year are also turning out.
Of lost year's team, thi following
will again perform for the Gold and

With the beginning of the Fall term the athletic activities
of the University are about to get under way once again. Varsity will have teams entered in almost every recognized sport,
testing their mettle in competition with the best of local aggregations.
As usual many of the former first team men are not back,
some have graduated and the usual quota lacked the necessary
funds to return to the University. These gaps must be filled
and it is from the ranks of the incoming freshmen that most
of the players will be drawn.
After leaving High School it is very easy to drop sports
and fall into a state of athletic idleness. Many freshmen feel
nervous at turning out and competing with athletes who have
had previous Varsity experience. While not every Freshman
can make a first team most sports have two or three teams,
making it possible for every man turning out to gain a position
on one.
In another column in this paper interested persons will find
a list of the various team practises.
Senior Soccer Team Shine
in Late Season Games
By ARNOLD C. WHITE
* Auditorium.
Long after other clubs on the
Campus had packed their kits for
the summer Varsity Soccermen continued their league and cup warfare
to finish the K33-34 season in May.
Some even then came back for more
joining other clubs 4n tho quest for
Dominion  Championship  honors.
These post-Varsity games saw some
exceptionaUy keen competition with
the Blue and Gold eleven acquitting
itself most creditably. In both the
Mainland and the Provincial series
it remained for an Inter-City League
team which reached the finals of both
series, to stop the Collegians' advance.
In the Mainland Cup competition
Varsity advanced through the preliminary rounds to the second round
proper, where thty met North Shore
United. Soccer fans gaped as the
Students took an early lead and controlled a good share of the play as
the teams split four goals in the
regulation time. Injuries slowed the
Varsity boys in the overtime, however, and North Shore went ahead on
a  questionable  penalty.    A  goal  in
the last minute of the extra half-
houP gave the P.ed a 4-2 verdict.
The Blue and Gold reached the
semi-final of the Provincial series
without much difficulty but a three-
week lay-off before the next game
and the absence of a couple regulars
put the students off th.ir form and
North Shore United again triumphed
With Varsity's games completed,
six of the squad joined other teams
for the Connaught Cup (Dominion
Championship) series. Dave Todd
and Ernie Costain were largely responsible for thc Vancouver Liberals'
success In trra early rounds, while Archie MacDougall and Bill Wolfe say,
service with North Shore United, the
latter starring ot wing-half until an
injury forced him out. Miller McGiU
formed part of the fine Art Monument defence, and Paul Kozoolin
aided Westminster Royals, the ultimate B. C. winnres, travelling east
with them on their unsuccessful quest.
The following players made up
Varsity's LeagU3 team; Stan Greenwood, Jock Waugh, Miller McGill,
Bish Thurber, Bill Wolfe, Ernie Cos-

English Rugby
Prospects Good
16 First Division Men
Turn Out
With sixteen Mckechnle Cup Rugby
■tan already enroUed and with the
usual run of second division and high
school men who move up to senior
company, there are at least two men
for every position on the first team.
Rumor is rife among the players that
the historic McKechnie Cup wiU take
Its place in the Trophy Cabinet In
the Library.
All the forwards with the exception
of Harry Pearson will be back, and
every one of them has had at least
a year's experience in first division
rugby. Such well known players as
MitcheU, Morris, Gross, Maguire, Upward, Pyle, Hurrison and Clement,
although they have played all last
season, will have to fight with the
rest of the boys for their positions.
Backfield Gets Three Stan
The backfield will undoubtedly
feel the loss of last year's captain,
Ken Mercer, Chris. Dalton, Dave
Pugh, Derry Tye, and the full-back
Gordie Brand. To fill these gaps
there are Gaul, Leggatt, Mercer, and
Goumeniouk. Norm Hager, who was
forced to lie idl. because of a broken
collar-bone, will be back in uniform
again. Three outstanding recruits to
the Varsity teem are Tommy Roxborough and Dave Carey, both of last
year's wonder team the North Shore
All-Blacks, and with these two is
Harry Robson who has had three
year's experience with Victoria Reps.
Dobble New Coach
The Club has been unfortunate in
losing Jack Tyrwhitt who coached
last year. However, the services of
Captain Dobbie have been enlisted
and under his guidance the team are
confident of an outstanding year.'
Bobby Gaul, a man who has won his
Big Block for three years, was elected
last year to tha captaincy of the team
and has as his henchman another
three year man, Jim Mitchell.
With such an array of talent turning out the team hopes to better the
record set by Inst year's outstanding
All-Blacks.
NOTICE
AppUcations for junior managers of
basketball are to be turned in immediately to John Prior or to George
Crosson.
