entered the tiaobing profession.
In 1927 he was appointed vice-principal of Templeton Junior High
School, and five years later became
principal of Alexandra School. During this time he obtained B.A, and
M.A. degrees at the U.B.C. summer

texts' now used in Junior High
Mr. Boyes gained prominence last

But Two Comedies Included
Initiation Expenses
Show Large Decrease
Frosh expenses were lessened in
every instance except insignia this
year, it was learned yesterday, when
Clarence Idyll made public the budgets for the functions which have
taken place thU year.
The loss on ii.signia this year was
largely due to th-e added expense of
green nc.il polish. Last year the books
showed a loss of $35.24, as against one
of $61.84 this ytai.
The Frosh Reception and Starvation
Dance proved surprises. Last year
the Frosh lost $6.08, while this year,
a profit of IM5.18 was realized. This
is due tc an extensive cutting of expenses. The "Starvation" Dance
showed a profit of $19.45. exceeding
all expectation.'. The most optimistic
Council members hoped to make approximately 2 dollars.
The Frosh Smoker turned in a deficit $33.24 lower than last year, while
the Freshette Supper lessened its loss
by 80 cents. Even the Handbook cost
$6.00 less than in 1934.
The total amount saved was $124.30.
As Idyll said' "People had just as
good a time this year, and it cost
them a great deal less."
Lea Elected to
Soph Presidency
At a meeting held in Arts 100 at
noon Monday the executive of Arts
'38 for the coming year was elected.
The meeting was opened by Peggy
Fox who callel for nominations for
president, Bill Lea was elected to
the office and took the chair, calling
for nomination'] for the other offices.
The following were elected: vice-
president, Janet Davidson; secretary,
Peggy Fox; treasurer, Jack McRae;
men's athletic lepresentative, Dave
Carey; women'': athletic representative, Patsy Lafon; literary representative, Alvin Rosenbaum.
At the close of the meeting those
elected agreed to have a mewting in
the near future and discuss plans for
the coming session.
Horrors play a large part in the
four Christmas plays which the Players Club will offer this year. A live
ghost, a murder or two, and a Cornish
miner with no face who continually
wears a black mask, are numbered
among the thrills and chills.
Continuing the precedent set last
Christmas by the presentation of a
scene from "Julius Caesar," Scenes
two, four and five from Act I of
Shakespeare's "Hamlet" will be
played. In thes? scenes, you will recall, Hamlet interviews the ghost of
his deceased father, at midnight on
the haunted ramparts of his uncle's
Melodrama will appear in the shape
of "The Mask"; on unusual play by
Tennyson Jesap, Built around the
eternal triangle theme, the play portrays the unequal struggle of two men
for a woman. The woman, described
as a "splendid slattern," is married to
a Cornish miner who lost his face in
a mine explosion. The lover cannot
overcome the strong hold her husband has on tl.e woman, but he always appears as soon as the husband
goes away.
In contrast lo these powerful presentations, a serio-comic Cockney play,
"It's the Poor Whot 'Elps the Poor,"
by Harold Chapin, will feature an
alcoholic funeral, an ex-convict, several ladies wiih bull necks and feathers, and a young man with yellow
shoes. Also numbered among the
cast is a potato salesman whose bowler hat has left an indelible red mark
on his forehead, and a lachrymose
lady who has buried five children
and has eight kfl.
A light French farce will close the
evening: "Villa for Sale," by Sacha
Gultry. Guitry shows here the
Frenchman's idea of the typical American. A French business man is inspecting a villa which ia for sale. He
is terrifically hored with the whote
thing, while his wife s only interested in bathrooms, At the end of the
play, he makeo a clear profit of one
hundred thousand francs, and takes
a pricekss painting with him to boot.
Tryouts take place this afternoon
for the above plays, and rehearsals
will begin immediately.

History was made at the University
of McGill when, in a very colorful
ceremony, Arthur E. Morgan, M.A.,
was officially endued with the robes
of office as principal and vice-chancellor of the mest famous of Canadian
The new principal was born in
Bristol, England, and is a graduate
of Trinity College at Dublin. After
his graduation he has had a very distinguished career, having served in
the Royal Artillery during the Great
Until his ni\r appointment at McGill, he labored ot the University College, Hull, raising the technical college there to tiie high standard that
It boasts of to-day.
The policy which Mr. Morgan brings
to his new position is well illustrated
by an interview given before he left
"The strength of every University
depends in no .'mall measure on the
loyalty of thor-e who have dwelt
within its walls and passed out into
the world of ts'fairs."
Dr. J. D. MacLean, M.D., CM.,

Autumn haa come in earnest to the
University Campus, Even freshmen
have responded to the change of
weather, and have shed their green
foliage. But ekewhere initiation still
goes on.
Here are a few symptoms of frosh-
itis as noticed at Queens' University:
frosh carrying six-quart baskets filled
with books, Obey must run all the
time that they are on the campus);
holding lighted matches for smoking

Another gold-mine has been discovered.   Here's p sample of the ore.
Senior: "Do you want 'An Introduction to Advanced Heat'?"

The claim is located at the University of Western Ontario.
Council broke all records last night,
when it sprinted through its businesa
of bills, reports, fashion parades and
other weighty problems in two hours
and seven minutes flat.
The Women's Undergraduate Society
was given permission to stage a fashion parade at tha Hudson's Bay store
towards the end of this month or the
beginning of next. The proceeds from
this parade will go toward the Women's Union Building fund. A suggestion that men students participate in
the parade was blushlngly vetoed by
R. J. Killam.
Council also made some changes
In the recently announced social program. Alumni day will take place on
October 26 instead of November 9 as
previously announced. The program
will, however, be the same, a Varsity
Occasional game in the Stadium, a tea
dance in the gym, a dinner In the
Caf. and a theatre presentation in the
Auditorium. The Science Class party
will take place on November 3 instead of October 31. The date of the
Arts Ball however, will remain on
November 14.
Plans were completed for the Ellens*
burg game, which will be played Saturday at two o'clock at Athletic Park.
Wally Mayers was granted permission
to play for the Adanacs this season.
He is unable to play for Varsity this
year owing to part time work at Co-
quitlam. It was also decided to erect
a new goal post for the Stadium.
John Dauphinee 'was appointed by
Council as the new Senior Editor of
the Ubyssey. He will take the place
on Tuesday issue of Alan Morley,
who resigned last week after been
elected President of the Arts Men's
Undergraduate Society. *
The Cosmopolitan Club will be allowed to sell tickets on the campus
for their Folk Song and Dance Festival. Two partial students were exempted from payment of the Alma
Mater fee as they were taking only
three units each.
A special feature of the evening
was the supply of dainty pickle sandwiches, garnished with olives and
made by the Junior Member himself.
Council pronounced them a preat success.
John E. Armstrong, son of Mr. and
Mrs. D. E. Armstrong of Cloverdale,
has been awarded an assistant professorship at the University of Toronto,

T. S. Eliot
Rmembering "The Waste Land", and more,
remembering "The Hollow Men," it is difficult
to estimate this new play by T. S. Eliot. The
transition is a troublesome thing.
The poem "Ash-Wednesday" for a time did
cause many young intellectuals to declare their
conversion, but that movement was, I think,
more of a result of the force of the previous
poems, that is a tribute, than an immediate
and sincere response.
And now T. S. Eliot is writing for a new
following, the Orthodox Church. "Murder in
the Cathedral" is a pageant-play, done for the
Canterbury Festival. Thus definitely recognizing his following, the writer has, for an artist, become too engrossed with his sense of
And "Murder in the Cathedral," as poetry,
is at fault in just that respect. One feels
throughout an effort, a determination to write,
as it were, an otthodox "Hollow Men." The
Eliot manner of writing is there, but the material doesn't suit it.

Between the time that we write and you
read this a lot of money will have changed
hands, we'll get a new blotter, and maybe a
new government will be In control, figuring
out the best way to help people forget the election promises.
Our money was on the Liberal Cause, because of the aforementioned blotter. You see,
we possess a blotter to the greater glory of the
Liberal Cause, mailed us along with a sample
ballot showing us how to put an "X" opposite
the Liberal candidate. We were blotting away
innocently in English Nine the other morning,
when to our consternation the paper was
snatched from our hands by a dyed-in-the-wool
Conservative on our right, and straightaway
mangled beyond recognition. The issue is complicated by the fact that Conservative headquarters, the dogs, do not seem to be supplying
the populace with free blotters of any description. Unless they hurry and run some off
the press, they will have lost for all time one
sheep to the Liberal fold.
We write this in the hope that a conscientious Conservative will take note. Pink is the
color we like best, but two green ones will do,
if Ottawa insists.
The Ubyssey editorials have or at least try
to have the reputation of being one of the few
morally uplifting forces on the campus. For
years we have been sternly criticizing the boorish students who throw lunch papers at the
speakers in the Auditorium and the equally
boorieh ones who leave their seats while a
speaker is still speaking. Just recently we called for a campaign to keep the campus clean.
We have even at times appealed for better
manners in the "Caf."
Judging from these editorials an outsider
would expect to find the Publications office a
model of cleanliness and decorum. He would,
we are forced to admit, soon find this idea far
from true. The Pub. up to this time has been
a byword for untidyness and general disorder.
Last year the situation reached its peak, the
campus journalists grovelled for seven months
in a place that would make even a pig feel
This year, realizing that the best place to
start our reforms was in the old home grounds
we started a campaign to keep drawings off the
walls, crockery off the floor and old lunches
off the typewriters.
All at first went well until today. It is now
our painful duty to report that today at least
six dirty cups were observed on the floor, one
aid lunch was discovered in the cupboard and
somebody has written his name on the wall.
We now are forced to admit that as reformers we are complete failures. This doesn't say
that we won't go on trying to improve everybody, but from now on we won't feel surprised
or even hurt if no one pays attention. We can't
reform ourselves so nobody else can be expected to take our noble ideas seriously.
Morley Callaghan
Technically, I suppose, this novel has for
its theme the emotional relationship between
Michael Alkenhead and his father. But the
story of Anna Prychoda is the finest thing in
the book. Through her Michael and his father
are made distinct. And it may be that through
her Morley Callaghan is giving what seems to
him as the only hope of this generation. But
that doesn't matter.
The love-story of Anna and Michael has
been told so honestly and simply that it moves
the reader to a feeling of utter gratefulness.
It is a lovely piece of writing. The prose-style
used has been chosen for Anna. The author
has got out of the story altogether; there is no
attempt to draw attention by "smart" writing.
The feeling always of a fine sense of tragedy about Anna's natural goodness has been
conveyed in a manner that goes almost to make
pure poetry. And so delicate a performance
this is, that to be concerned about any other
part of the book is to lose the whole feeling
for Anna.

YOUNG MAN, OLD MAN   .   .   .
Oh going down to Sheol I met upon the way

"Young man, young man, love is all for

Life does not quicken in you;
touched with unction
you look to a god and

You have not heard the new song.
You have not felt yourselves,

EMBERS of the Players Club
have arranged the recreational
book dii.play for this week, tho third
of a series arranfed by clubs and certain students with wide reading interests. The books this week should
prove to be of unusual interest to all
those who are devoted to the theatre
in all its various departments. Only
a small part of the available library
collection is listed here. A notable
group of books on costume and dress
designing are to be found, besides
books on act in.?, directing, stage dec-
ation, ballet, marionettes, stage mechanics, play anthologies and biography.
Cochrane, C, B., Secrets of a Show
man—\ meaty book of theatrical reminiscences, a vastly informed compilation of episodes, unusual anecdotes,
roundabouts, fii nncial reverberations,
stentorian gossin.
Mclsaac, The Tony Sarg Marionette
Book — This Puppet book holds as
much magic in it as the wonderful
lamp of Aladdin and can create a
whole world in a twinkling of an eye.
Macgowan, Fnotlioht* Across America—A survey of the extent, nature
and significance of the non-commercial theatre in America. The author
devotes considerable space to the discussion of student play productions
in American Universities, also College
courses in dramatics. The book is a
real contribution to contemporary
knowledge of the theatre.
Bancroft, Squire, Empty Choirs —
Sir Squire pays tribute to old friends
and in the course of amiable gossip
a good deal may be learned about
the loftier aide of the Victoria stage.
Baring, Maurice, Sarah BernHart —
To those who love the theatre and
the unusual in humanity, Baring's
book will be a joy.
Merrill and Fleming, Play Making
and Plays—Presents the educational
aspects of school drama and particularly the development of the dramatic impulse and IU use ln elementary schools.
Craig, Gordon, Fourteen Notes—The
most interesting of Craig's comments
concern Bernhardt whom Craig strenuously objects I > calling an artist.
Sommerfield, John, Behind the
Scenes—Thla little manual will convince the uninitiated that there is
more to the production of a play
than mere acting.
Perry, C. L.. The Work of the Little
Theatres—The book is of undoubted
interest and value to all amateur producers. The r.tudy includes information about all classes of amateur production.
Dishor, M. Willson, Clowns and
Pontomimes—Here are rare facts difficult to come at in the best of libraries without an incredible expenditure o? time; here are rare illustrations more difficult to find. Newcomers to the theatre will find this
history a much needed inspiration
from the traditions of a great profession.
Starkie, Jacinto Benevente — The
book shows that a careful study of
the various n&pects of the subject
has been made. The book also reveals a wide knowledge of the literature cf Spain and other European
Markov, P. A, The Soviet Theatre—
An interesting account of the "October Revolution in the Theatre." Read
how the revolutionary forces used
the theatre as an instrument or agency for the propagation of a new social
order and of the amazing changes
made in classical plays to make them
satisfactory as instruments of propaganda.
Hyden, Pay'oi'i — Walford Hyden,
the author of this study of the great
Russian dancer, was Pavlova's musical director from 1910 until her death
in 1931. By combining technical criticism with anecdote, Mr, Hyden has
produced a book which is both fascinating and informative.
Oliveroff, "Flight of the Swan" —
More informal account of Anna Pavlova. Andre Oliveroff joined Pavlova's company in America, and was
for a number of years her first classical dancer. Less technical than Mr.
Hyden'^ book, "Flight of the Swan"
concerns itself to a great extent with
anecdotes concerning the dancer and
her company.
Kinney, Tony and Margaret West—
"The Dance," un interesting study of
dancing of all types, beginning with
the dancing of ancient Egypt, and
continuing to the social dancing of
Nijinsky, Romola, "Nijinsky," The
Life of a Strange Man—By the unusual lady who was his wife. This
book should be read by anyon-e who
appreciates tho unique and the beautiful.
Summers, The Restoration Theatre—
A thorough study of the Restoration
Theatre, written in an entertaining
and unusual manner. The author is
one of the foremost authorities on
his subject anl has produced a book
which deals with it's rather remote
period in an inieresting fashion.
Propert, Ths Russian Ballet—This
splendid volume deals with the loveliest branch of the modern theatre—

SINCE the appearance of this column in lh3 issue of Tuesday, Oct.
8, I have been severely censured
from two sources: I have been censured by the Editor-in-Chief of the
"Ubyssey," and I have bven called
down by a m?mber of faculty whose
interest in newly-adopted policy for
adult education is well known to the
student body as a whole.
The Editor's complaint I have taken seriously, <md I have accepted it
as wholly justified. I admit that my
criticism of the Sport Section of the
college journal was in poor taste. In
future I shall use more care in the
choice of subjects in this column. But
I do not admit that my idea was
As far as the complaint about my
attitude on the Adult Education question is concerned, It has affected me
not ln the least. My point was that
taking professors away from the University for one month each year
would react unfavourably on the
standing of students registered under
those professor';. It seems to be a
fair point, and I shall be only too glad
to state that I am mistaken—although
I retract nothing until the examination results are released next spring!
By then the Ubyssey haa ceased publication for the year.

ON the front page Friday appeared
an interview with Les Allien who
deplores the conservatism ot the University of Toronto, and lays great
stress on the liberalism at U.B.C.
Never having been to U. of T„ I
cannot personally compare the extent
to conservatism at the t\vo colleges,
but from my position here at Varaity I can point out a large number
of features which are closer to comparison than contrast. Mr. Allen
chose his arguments with too little
Suppression of freedom of the press
is not peculiar to the University of
Toronto, and, if I remember correctly, an editor of the "Ubyssey" was
suspended two weeks for taking an
unappreciated stand on some matter
pertaining to tne University of B.C.
The "deep and biding opposition to
such pleasantries as beer" which Mr.
Allen mentions is also found here in
British Columoin. In my first column on this page I appealed for
liquor advertisements in the "Ubyssey," but those advertisements are
still forbidden, although they would
do much to put the college paper on
a self-sustaining basis.
And it is common knowledge that
the students ac U.B.C. were compelled
to build their own gymnasium, although University authorities had
previously be*n offered a sum sufficient for that purpose from outside
sources—sources which were unfortunately considered "unsuitable" by
the "powers thnt be."
A circulation receipt book is
missing from the publications'
board office in the Auditorium.
The book is of no value to anyone except the Circulation Manager of the "Ubyssey", who offers a reward for its return.
Will the person who took a pair of
football shoes out of the men's strip
room return them to Bill Russell.
Even Pacifism cannot be considered
rampant on tire U.B.C. campus. Occasionally the dashing members of
the C.O.T.C. can be observed in all
their glory.
And Mr. Allen might perhaps try
to spend a pleasant hour in the "Castle Terrible" behind the famous
"Moat"—with a man, or woman, it
matters not which. It just can't be

ago I complimented the freshman
class on its "modicum of life and

tune, a condition has come to my
notice which overcomes, at least partially, my feeling of high regard for
our newcomer? — for on Tuesday I
dropped in at the Freshman Smoker
in the Moose Hall.
The affair was conducted well, and
the program was better than is usual
at such affairs. Not until the refreshments were served did the riot occur.
University students ares upposed to
come from good homes—homes where
the students n.-e supposedly taught
some appreciation of good manners.
Anyone who happened to be in the

be expected to wonder whether such
a supposition is not for the most part
Animals and savage races must of
necessity struggle for their existence,
and their food supply must be seized
and gobbled with the utmost despatch
if they are to receive their just and
equitable share.
On Tuesday ihe freshman class veritably reverted to type. The scramble
for crackers, cheese, and ciders was
sufficiently violent to do credit to
the most primitive savages and the
wildest aninwls. Crowds of freshmen
jostled one another unceremoniously.
Cider splashed carelessly over clothing and floor, cracker crumbs were
crumple'd with utmost abandon,
cheese became sloppy and slithery
underfoot as our "well-trained" newcomers crowded around the tables and
jostled one another thoughtlessly in
their mad scramble for refreshments.
It was worse than childish, for on
that score our youngest students
might possibly be excused. It was
the truest evidence of the upbringing
and worth of tht Class of 1939—and
I was not favorably impressed.

Once upon a time there was a ratty
old king who lived in a far distant
country with his beautiful queen who
was not very happy with the king
her husband because he slept with
his mouth open and because he always left the great court balls at
half-past nine o'clock and the queen
alwaya had to go with him.
But one day when the queen was
sitting down on her piazza, a handsome young man came to the castle
selling brushes.
"I am working my way through the
great college in the city," he said to
the queen, "would you like to buy
a back brush?"
"Well, I have a back brush," answered the queen, "but why not come
and visit me some night when the
King has gone to sleep, for the King
Is not very much fun."
So that very night the young man
came to see the queen. He climbed
over the wall and up to the royal
balcony, where the queen was wait-
big for him, and they went together
to her chamber where they visited
together and were having a very nice
But all at on;* the king came into
the' room: he was going through to
the bathroom to put his teeth in a
glass of water,  which he had for.
gotten to do before he went to bed.
When he saw the young man and the
queen together,  he was very angry
indeed.    "Ho,"   he   cried,   "What   is
"This is a young man who is working his way through college," explained the queen, who was rather
frightened. Tien she screamed, loudly, for the king had picked up a
broad axe and started to chase the
young man. But as he ran, he tripped
over ihe hem ot his nightshirt and
broke his neck, so that he4 died.
So the young man stayed on at
the palace a while and later on became king of the country and married the queen himself. And he
slept, not with his mouth open, but
with his lips parted, and never left
the court balls until well after three,
so that the queen was very happy.
Thus we see that the moral of this
tale is, always go to visit the queen
if she asks you up, or, never forget
to put your teeth in water before
you go to bed.

At last I've got rid of my green
cap and can go around looking my
natural self. In order to celebrate
the event dad promised to give me
a new dress. After all one must try
to look extra specially one's best after
looking more or less like a freak escaped from th? circus for two weeks.
Anyway I went all over town looking for one and finally landed up at
ANNE MALONEY'S. I should have
had sense enough to go there the
first time but I'll know better next
Her woolen suits are absolutely
the smartest :md the most stunning
things 1 have sf-cn. After much deliberation I finally chose a gold one
with large wooden buttons, it has a
beautifully pleated skirt and a yokee
effect made of pin tucks. Does it
do things to mv figure? Well I only
wish I'd got if. when I wasn't wearing any make-up. One could have
a face like a horse and still look like
something in that dress. I almost
bought an especially tricky dress of
wool and velveteen, that is supposed
to be one of thr smartest combinations possible this year the salesgirl
told me.
All the skirts at ANNE MALONEY'S have a special air which the
average ones lack. 1 was told that
this is due to the pleats which are
placed in rather whimsical positions
and so make everything sort of different. I'm only hoping dad gets generous again somo time soon and then
I'll certainly be right down at ANNE
MALONEY'S again.
Before going home I took a walk
down Granville Street and of course
got stopped by the window of RAE'S
CLEVER SHOES. This window does
more than stop a girl, it drags her
right in Tha word clever certainly
fits this store, I don't know any
place in town where such cute shoes
can be'found.
I don't really need any new shoes
but I've always heard that a lady Is
known by her feet so I guess a girl
can't hi've -too many pairs. I hope
dad agrees with this because I bought
a pair anyway. A marvelous looking
pair of semi-dress ties in navy blue
suede trimmed with kid. They will
go beautifully with my blue suit. It
is lucky I haven't a green or wine
suit as well beet-use there were some
beautiful bottle green suede shoes
and also some wine colored ones.
These shoes pre awfully reasonable
too, only five dollars so perhaps dad
won't have much to say after all.
On thr. way heme I remembered I
needed a slip so I stopped off at
South Granville and wandered in to
It was lucky for me I hadn't remembered to buy one down town^becauss
then I would have missed one of the
best bargains of my young life. MRS.
PATTON has the nicest slips I have
even seen, they are of very heavy
silk so they can't take expeditions in
the upwards r'.iiection, they just hang
the way good slips should. Her prices
are just right for a freshette's budget
I was supposed to go to the English
Rugby game on Saturday afternoon
so of course I planned to wear my
new gold suit However, it rained,
so Jack took me to a show instead,
afterwards to make up for the disappointment o" missing the game we
went to the BLUE GOOSE. They have
a dinner dance there every night and

In A Castle
The freshman bowled merrily
across the campus to the library,
skirted the lily pond, and awept up
the library steps. On the top step
he stubbed hia toe. In the revolving
door, his leather heels skidded, and
he cracked his snout against the glass.
Within the library, the chill of concentration and decaying erudition
shrouded his cheerful soul. He
hopped quietly up the inside stairs,
arid on the to;) step he caught his
heel and luichvd violently to starboard, upset'ing his books and his
writing implements and his ruler,

He found a place and pulled back

looked at him. He put down his
books and reached back for the chair.
He was sweating.
He grabbed tho chair and jerked it
towards him, but his hands were hot
and slipped. He sat down on the
edge of the seat but slid off again,
rapping his skull on the chair as he
fell.   Everybody laughed.
When he sat down again and opened
his books, his pen resolutely refused
to write. He pulled the lever, and
a jet of ink splashed wstly over his
English notes. He looked up desperately; his mouth opened and shut,
and he looked like a worried goldfish. A horrible girl across the table
snorted convulsively — whonk — like
The freshman, wild eyed, bounded
to his feet, charged over to the stairs,
and flung himself over the banister
with a strangled yell. He fell to the

perfecting a new style of offence featuring the lateral pass, na well as
polishing up the old plays. These
and similar plays are being featured
by the big teams all over the continent, being great yardage gainers and
tending to make the game much more
open and spectacular. This new attack should give the Thunderbirds a
certain advantage over Ellensburg,
since American backfield men are not
used to this type of play, while it
has been used in Canadian football
for years. The value of the lateral
pass is indicated by tha eagerness

Varsity 23-0
There was only one discontented
man on the Second Division English
Rugby team after their match against
the Rowing Cluo on Saturday afternoon and he was Shirl. Griffin, the
redoubtable full-back who was given
too few chances to demonstrate his
prowess; for practically the whole
game, the final score of which was
23-0 in Varsitv favor, took place in
the  Rowers'  halt' of the field.
True to tradition Varsity commenced
the game playing one man short, but
was fortunate in acquiring tho services of Harvey Carruthers who came
to cheer but remained to play, and
who played a fine game. Hobson
opened the scoring in the first half
with a try that was on the verge of
being scored lor many minutes. Only
one more try was scored in this half
and both trias went unconverted.
The highlight of the game came in

field goal with a spectacular drop-

scored in this half, two of which Lea

Track Meet
Freshmen Will Have McPhee
And Lucus
In pouring rain the Track Club
turned out in full force on Friday
afternoon for its first practice. Captain Howie McPhee and Coach, Percy
Williams were both present, and
training schedules were given out to
each member of the team.
Due to the unfavorable weather the
men only waimed up and practiced
starts. Alex Lucas showed very good
form. Lucas, in addition to being a
sprinter, also hurdles, broad jumps,
heaves the discus, and high jumps,
and has earned himself the name of
"the one man track team," It is expected that ho will shatter the Varsity high jump record of 5 feet 9.4
inches held by Hugh Russel, Ag. '24.
Lucas has cleared the bar at over
6 feet, a height that would break
one of VarsityV longest standing records.
The Frosh-Vnrr.lty Meet looks like
a landslide for the Frosh, who hopelessly outnumber' the Varsity team.
It Is the opinion of the Track Club
that this event should be postponed
until the mojnbers have more time
to get in shape.—BERRY.

Varsity  Defeats Van.  College
In Football, 11-5
Another cheerful note in the University's sport campaign was struck
Saturday afternoon at Hastings Park
when the Junior Canadian Rugby
players beat Vancouver College 11 to
5. The victory was won before a
fair turnout of spectators who, at the
end of the game, all agreed that the
University teahi^vould be a powerful
factor in the bitter Junior title fight.
The College scored in the first 2
minutes, sending Reynolds over for
the touch; but then, in the words of
Coach Morrow "the Varsity team settled clown and played scod rugby
with exceptionally good interference,"
with the result that before the half
was over Davie had gone over tha
line and made the score 5 all. Most
of the next half was taken up with
mid-field sparring but Varsity suddenly sprang i forward pass play,
completed it, burked to hussetl and
scored from center field. Not satisfied with ono completed forward the
team completed another to convert
the touch and bring the score up to
Varsity 11, College 5, where it remained.
With pep and enthusiasm the keynotes of their play, Coach Hitchen's
youthful Senior Soccer eleven chalked
up a 2-1 victory over Young Liberals in their firs* game of the season
at Kerrisdale Park Saturday.
With a nucleus of seasoned players
to steady the inexperienced newcomers, the Varsity team presented a
surprisingly well balanced front, and
gave promise of developing into one
of the best sqitr.ds turned out in the
past few years. The defence, composed almost entirely of veterans, was
sound throughout, while the attack
made up in vigour for what it lacked
in skill and f>r>!sh.
Liberoh  Score First
After Varsity had held a slight edge
on the play 'or the first fifteen minutes, Liberals' clever right winger,
Featherstone, slipped through to open
the scoring with a shot that gave
Greenwood no chance. The Collegians, however, kept right in the fight,
and gave the Politicians' defence a
busy time, and before the rest jperiotl,
Captain Wolfe snared a loose ball
outside the penalty area and picked
a corner for the equalizing goal.
In the second half, with Varsity
playing against the sun, Liberals
forced the going during the early par*
of the period. The Students soon
found their feet, and began passing
the ball around better, so that play
was the "end-io-end" variety through
most of the period.
Wolfe Scores the Winner
With ten minutes to play, Bill Wolfe
followed up i concerted rusty by the
forwards   to  score   his   second,    the
winning goal.

Saturday turned out to be a red
letter day for the Varsity soccer
squads when the juniors played the
Point Grey Ganison and added another victory to that of the seniors
by chalking a 2-1 win.
The first half saw the Garrison
leading 1-0. In the second half, however, the juniors were more successful. Early in this half "Rosie" Okuda, Varsity center forward, took a
pass from Morris to score the tying
goal. Ten minlces; from time "Rosie"
again broke away and beat the Garrison backs and goalie to bang in
the winning yoal.
On the wnole the junior squad
played a steidy game throughout,
with Emery doing more than his
share of stopping the ball.
One of the best guards in the city,

Hoop Squad
Rounds to Shape
For Opener
Coach Moe Has Only One More
Week Until V.A.C. Game
Following in the footsteps of English Rugby, American Football, and
Soccer, Basketball makes its debut
on the sport font this week. This
season's schedule for the Senior A
Hoopsters has the opening game slated between Varsity and V.A.C. on
Saturday, Oct. 19, hostilities starting
at 8 p.m.
So now we rsk with a tremor in
our voices: "How does this year's
team look? Who's on the team?
What are their chances?, and many
other pertinent inquiries t.bout the
1935-36 Thunderbird Basket Machine,
To answer these questions we must
arise at the unearthly hour of 6:30
a.m. and hitch-hike our way to the
indoor Athletio Playground, where
we find the Basketeers at work by
7:15 a.m. Theso morning practices,
which occur three and four times a
week, include defensive and offensive
plays, drills, nnd even setting-up exercises!
Coach Ivor Moe. ably assisted by
Senior Manage: George Crosson, is
building a fast-breaking squad of po-
tentional basket-snaggers, using the
traditional zones system on the defense.
' The squad now number thirteen,
all of whom are enthusiastic basketball fiends, ready to do or die for
dear old Alma Mammy. But we find
that the league allows only ten players on each team per game, which
will necessitate the cutting of the
squad before Saturday.
At present. Millar, Davis, Hardwick, and Musor. are the guards
signed up, all of who are trying
for the coveted spot on the first defence line, alongside of Captain "Joe"
Pringle. Lucas and McKee are the
two centremen, While Detwiller,
Schofield, Ridland, Patmore, Berry
and Turner n-o the signed applicants
for the forward positions.
Pre-season predictions for the success or failure of a team in a coming
season are many and varied, especially in regard to any of the University
teams. However, we've got one for
the senior A Basketball team, on the
basis, of course, of our industrious
early-morning research. We believe
that although this year's Blue and
Gold squad is young and inexperienced, it will nevertheless give a
good account of itself in the Mainland Loop, because it has plenty of
pep, and team-spirit—TURNER.

try, Robertson: convert, Carey; 31-&
try, Roberts; convert missed; 34-0
try, Mitchell: convert missed; 37-0.
That, just about, tells the story,.except that the last try was scored on
a beautifully biocked penalty awarded Ex-Brittany, which was snatched
up and toted rcross the line with
celerity and abandon.
Of course the main feast of the day
was the All-Black - Occasional epic,
in which our r;.aas were squeezed out
by a 6-5 count, apparently leaving
them out of further reckoning in the
cup race.
It seems thci: the North Shore Niggers will be the team for Varsity to
bsat again this year, although the
Rowers, who disposed of Ex-Magee
by another 37-C score on the lower
pitch while th> Thunderbirds settled
the other Ex' - 1 ash in the Oval, are
by no means out of tho picture. Nevertheless, I do not think the Candy-
Striped Scullers will make the grade
this year, in spite of their vast improvement.
In individual performances, Roberts (whose passing was a delight),
Wilson and Pearson played heads-up
games. Eddie McGuire was conspicuous in the line-outs as he bounced
upwards for toss-ins.
Carey made four of tho six converts, a reasonable performance, and
Robson played his usual go-devil
game, but definitely marred it on
several occasions by not getting rid
of the ball as soon as ha should have.
