FROM EUROPE
Keyserling Is Now
West Europe
U.P. Chief
Outlining the problems of
a newspaperman ln present-
day Europe, Count Robert
Keyserllng, western European
manager of the United Press
and graduate of U.B.C, spoke
to 400 students in Arts 100,
Tuesday noon.
MUST   INTERPRET
Introduced by one ot his former
professors,   F.   H.   Soward,   Count
Keyserllng   stated   that   the   moat
dangerous and exacting task of a
newspaper man  was  the  interpretation of tacts which hy themselves
would   be   meaningless   or   which
have   been   distorted   by   political
propaganda. Varying interpretation
may cause the  same  story  to appear  in  different  papers  with  entirely    different    headlines.    "The
Buropean newsman has a power today that he never asked tor."

Since   1030,   economic   problems
have found their place on the front
page and the Count stated that he
found  his   study of  Economics   at
IT. B. C. very helpful in his work.
United Press men ln Europe must

gather all the news and leave it for

Flu Hits Alberta
Campus: Edmonton
Schools Lose 6000
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA,
Edmonton, Jan. 18. (W.I.P.U.)—
An epidemic of influenza has
swept the University of Alberta
this past week, filling beds in the
infirmary to capacity and forcing
students and professors alike to
stay in sick beds at home. Besides influenza there are various
other communicable diseases that
accompany lowered vitality. University classes continued to be
called off Tuesday as professors
were unable to attend their lectures.
Six thousand students of the
Edmonton schools, comprising 45
per cent, of the total school population, are confined to their
homes as a result of the disease.
"There has been no suggestion
yet that the University be closed,"
according to A. E. Ottewell, Registrar of the university. Dr. Kerr
president of the university, said
that as far as he waa aware,
there would be no action taken
to close the university and that
there was no foundation in the
rumors that classes will be cancelled. According to medical
health authorities, the type of
'flu now prevalent Is not the
pneumonia type, as after tho last
war.
New Debate Series
Planned For Fall
(By N.F.C.U.S. Service)
Plans are well under way for a
series of inter-Canadian debates in
the Fall of 1937 Involving the four
travelling debating; teams representing eight different Canadian
universities, and, in addition lt is
hoped to send a Canadian team to
Oreat Britain and another to the
United States.
The inter-Canadian schedule is
complete, but announcement of the
schedule is withheld pending settlement of the "outside" debates that
are to take place. The last series
of inter-Canadian university debates sponsored by the N.C.F.U.S.
took plaoe in the fall of 1935, and
it is aimed to conduct this schedule
every other year, thus giving rep
resentatlon to all Canadian universities by the time a double series
of debates are concluded.
Fares For Teams May
Be Reduced Soon
(By N.F.C.U.S. Servloe)
Through the N.F.C.U.S. an appeal
is being taken to the Board of Railway Commissioners of Canada arising out of the refusal of the Railway Companies in Canada to grant
a reduced fare to parties of Canadian students who are competing
with sister universities in athletics,
dramatics,  debating,  and  all  other

EDUCATION
MEN COMING
Three outstanding leaders ln Canadian Adult education, E. A. Cor-
bett, Drummond Wren and J. King
Gordon will speak ln Arts 100 Tuesday noon while visiting the U. B. C.
campus.
FOUNDER OF BANFF SCHOOL
Mr. Corbett ls the Director of the
Canadian Adult Education Association, a witty speaker, and well
qualified for the position which he
holds. As Director of Extension at
the University of Alberta he has
given notable service, particularly
in the field of drama, and is the
Oovernor of the Dominion Drama
Festival. He ls well known as the
founder and director of the Banff
School of Fine Arts.
Mr. Wren, the General Secretary
of the Workers' Educational Association, together with Mr. Corbett,
ls visiting the campus under the Department of Extension. For moat
of his life employed as an industrial worker, he brings to his task
a sound conception of the need for
making available to workers the
privileges of cltlsenshlp.
SON OF CONNOR
Prof. King Cordon needs little introduction to U. B. C. Though best
.known as the son of "Ralph Connor," his ability as a public speaker
haa already made him popular
amongst Canadian students. He la
a former Rhodes Scholar and Professor of Christian Ethics. He is
visiting the coast under the Joint
auspices of the Fellowship for a
Christian Social Order and the
Student's Christian Movement of
Canada.
In addition to the meeting on
Tuesday, Professor Cordon will
speak on Friday noon. Mr. Corbett
and Mr. Wren may be heard again
at a student gathering on Sunday,
January 31st, further arrangements
to  be  announced later.
Frosh to Meet Today
To Choose Hon. Prexy
Today at 12.16, in Arts '100, will
be held a meeting of Arts '40. This
meeting is for the .purpose of
choosing an Honorary President of
the class. Also to be discussed is
the question of fees which must be
paid before the class party.
If a sufficient number of fees are
received the party will be held on
February 4th at the Commodore
and will be informal. Patrons and
details are to be decided later.
However, plans are being drawn up
to have the Frolic a complete draw,
including all members of the class.
groups of inter-univeralty activities.
During the past six years, particularly in Western Canada—whose
universities are much apart—inter-
university activity of all kinds, and
particularly sports teams, has been
at a standstill due to the prohibitive rates in effect ln the light of
existing economic conditions.
Lengthy n e g o 11 atlons conducted
with the Companies bave proved of
no avail, with the result that at the
next Sittings of tbe Board ot Railway Commissioners of Canada, ln
Edmonton, an appeal will be heard.
Popular Singing Star H*8 A
Busy  Life  to   Lead
Finds Interviewer
By DORWIN BAIRD
An  interview   with   Nelson
Eddy.
That is what I had Tuesday evening, when, In the
company of Oeorge Wright of
the News-Herald, I stepped
into a Hotel Vancouver elevator and headed for the
tenth floor. The interview
was to be done by Mr. Wright,
and I, as a cub reporter, was
going along more or less for
the fun of seeing the flesh and
blood version of a singing
matinee idol.
"DID TIME" HIMSBLF
We were ushered into the suite
where Mr. Eddy and his companions were staying, shown seats, and
generally treated like human beings. In a moment the star appeared, wrapped in an ordinary
dressing gown. He had just
emerged from a bath.
There   was   little   of   the   idol
about the young man who smiled
as ho shook our hsnds.    "I  used
to  bs  a   nswspspsrmsn   myself,"
he eald, opening the eonversatlon
at   a   point   whors   both   psrtlss
oould Join In. "I wss on the Philadelphia Ledger for Ave years, seeing servloe on both the 'boat' and
cn the 'desk'."
We spoke of moving pictures, and
he   told   us   of   his   recently   completed    "Maytlme,"    co-starring   of
course, tbe equally versatile  Jean-
nette Macdonald.    The next film he
does   will   be   "Qlrl   of  the   Golden
West," which will start a series of
two to the year.   "Maytlme" should
be released  in about two months.
WILL SING ALL NIGHT
Mr, Franklin, Eddy's manager,
told us that film work was never
going to interfere with concert appearances and other presentations
of better music. The singer interjected with, "I started a concert
singer and I'll end that way. 1 like
to sing a lot at any time."
Eddy never stops a eoneert for
suoh ordinary things as boats snd
trslns. Ons of the first things his
msnager did  when  they  arrived
here Tuaaday was to arrangs to
hold the 11 p.m. boat to Seattle.
"He'll   probsbly   sing   long   aftor
the   finish   of   the   program,"   he
noted.
It ls no easy task touring as Nelson Eddy Is doing.   The Vancouver
appearance   was   the   fourth   ln   a
series of 43, a concert almost every
other night. At the same time there
is   the   Sunday   CBS   radio   show
(KNX-KOL, 6 p.m.) to be rehearsed.
He will meet his radio cast ln Salt
Lake   City   Sunday   and   they   will
work  on   the  show  from  noon  till
an   hour   before   broadcast   time.
That's work for real artists.
RIDES A  LOT
The singer, who owns a 29-room
home in Beverly Hills, keeps flt
with a little golf, a little swimming
in his own pool, and a good deal of
riding. There are two line horses
back home waiting for their famous
master to return next April. By the
way, Eddy will sing on the Ford
Sunday Evening Hour in April.

LEACOCK WIT
SLIPS_A   BIT
By J. D. Maofarlana
All who heard Stephen Leacock
last week were no doubt Impressed,
but none so much as myself. Having already read the great humorist's speech ln the Alberta Gateway
and having duly reproduced lt ln
this paper for Ubysaey students I
was more than agreeably surprised,
after hearing two sentences, to find
that his talk here was identical . . .
albeit, I could settle back and bask
in the great man's wit without taking notes for a W.I.P.U. Exchange
story.
And herein I learnt a great leaaon . . . I.e., that the Hon. gentle-
man'a greatneaa ia built upon hla
humor   and   hla   peraonality.     In
faot,  ao  Impreaaed  waa   I that   I
have   been   watohlng   oloaaly   all
other university pspsrs In Canada
hoping   to   oateh   some   reflooted
ray   from   this   grsat   personage,
and at last I hsvs caught It.
I reprint here Dr. Leacock's reply
to a letter of appreciation written
by  the  Argosy,  Mt.  Allison   paper,
of New  Brunswick.
HIS MOTHER LIKES IT
"I am glad to learn trom your
letter that you think my Nonsense
Novels a fine work, but you admit
that you were in hospital and delirious when you read it. That is a
form of commendation which my
books have often received. I remember years ago a returned veteran
saying to me, 'Your books were just
a Godsend to us ln France; you see,
ln the shape we were in, we couldn't attempt to read anything except
rot.' I also recall how good old Professor Barret Wendell of Harvard,
who was a real author and wrote
books on such things as Moral Purpose and the Inner Life, once said
to me ln his kindly but very superior way, 'I'm so glad to meet you,
Mr. Leacock; my CHILDREN read
your books.' I answered, 'And my
MOTHER Is just crazy over yours'."

Influenza Menace
Grows on Campus,
Epidemic Feared
Not Serious Yet, But
Precautions Should
Be Taken By All
In view of the preaent Influenza
epidemic in Greater Vancouver, Dr.
K. F. Brandon, director ot the University Health Service, has issued
a warning to students designed to
prevent spread of the disease on
this campus.
Interviewed Thursday,  Mra. C.
A.  Lucas of the  Heslth  Ssrvlee,
eupplsmsntsd ths wsrnlng, stressing    ths    oommunlesbllity    and
dsngsr of Influonss.
"There ls no actual epidemic in
the university aa yet," she stated,
"but a number of cases have been
reported and I fear there are many
others we do not know about. The
trouble is that students do not report until it is too late to prevent
infection    ot   others.    They    bave
symptoms  of  a  common  cold  and
continue coming to university until
the  influenza  has  definitely developed.
PNEUMONIA  POSSIBLE
Influenza may not be dangerous,
but it haa so many possible complications. Pneumonia ls the most
serious ot these, and ls by no
means uncommon."
Professors report a slight falling
off  in  attendance  at  olasses,   presumably due to sickness, although
the decrease is not yet alarming.
"Becauae   of   the   current   epl-
demle   of   mild   Influonss,   It   Is
most urgent to rsmind oursslves
of   eertsin    precautions,"   ststes
Dr.     Brandon    In    his    wsrnlng,
whioh Is being posted In all buildings  on  tha  oampua.
"If you have symptoms like the
common    cold,   headache,    general
muscle aches and  pains,  stuffiness
in the nose or feverisbuess, stay at
home und avoid menacing your fellow-  students,   for   influenza   Is   a
highly   communicable   disease   and
Isolation    of   cases    will    stop    its
spread.
GO TO BED
"Go to bed: Although influenza
itself is a mild disease, lt Is often
complicated by pneumonia and
bronchitis caused by other germs
that are carried by and spread from
the human nose and throat. These
germs of pneumonia Invade the
lungs and kill, when the general
resistance of the body is lowered
by trying to carry on your work and
activities when you are ill.
"If you contract Influenza or any
complications avoid contact with
others by going to bed immediately.
To ensure adequate care for
every student who may be ill we
particularly request that you report
any cases of illness among the stud'
ents to the Students' Health Service."

'EMERGENCY'
MEET GETS
POSTPONED
Council   Not   Ready
To Present Plans
For Stadium
The Ubyssey was informed
Wednesday that the "emergency" Alma Mater meeting,
called for January 27, has
been postponed for at least
two weeks.
STILL INVESTIGATING
The meeting was to have been
for the purpose of discussing stadium plans, but the committee has
not sufficient Information before it
to present to the student body. This
situation has arisen despite the
claim of the student president that
the matter has been under invesi-
gating for several months.
A   special  committee,  consisting  of  Dave  Carey,   Lyall  Vine
and  Beth Bvans was appointed
at Council on January 4  to Investigate details and possibilities
of the proposed  stadium  structure, considered by many to be
the major project before tho student executive this year.
Even though it may be a major
project, the Council has adopted the
policy of moving slowly in any action  it  may  take   regarding   the
stadium.    At  the  same  time,   tho
question of the Pass System is due
to come before the students soon.
University authorities have had two
months to consider the matter, and
are expeced to make a statement
before long.
The regular meeting of the Board
of Governors will be held Monday
evening.
Slighted Faculty
Rises Against Us
In Defence of Fame
By CLEM L. KING
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA,
Edmonton, Jan. 18 (W.I.P.U.)
A statement appearing In tho
University of British Columbia
publication, Tho Ubyssey, has
Alberta students wondering what
It Is all about, and what Is wrong
with our Pacific Coast friends.
It seems that they were reviewing the circumstances surrounding the establishment of a Household Economics course there.
According to their statement, the
nearest Canadian University offering such a course Is the University of Manitoba, and that any
student desiring to take such a
course would necessarily have to
go there. They have not heard
apparently, that the University
of Alberta has offered such a
course for many years, and at the
present time thero are 88 fair
co-eds registered in this very
same course.
Wo surely thought that we
were farther west than Manitoba,
but somebody appears to bo
wrong. We aure thought that the
Faculty of Household Economic*
had  greater fame than this.
PROM   PEP
PASSABLE
A smooth musical background for
the introduction of the three aspirants to the coveted title of "Queen
of the Junior Prom" was provided
by the popular Mart Kenney and
hla Seven Western Gentlemen ln
the Auditorium, Wednesday noon.
"ELEANOR"POPULAR
To a capacity audience, this well-
known orchestra played in typical
style popular numbers of the day,
with vocals taken by Mart Kenney,
Art Hollman, "Three of a Kind,"
and, to the very evident enjoyment
of the men, EJleanor Bartell.
Malcolm Chapln acted as master
of ceremonies, while during the Intermission, Malcolm Brown, President of Arts '88, introduced to an
expectant audience the three would-
be Queens, Marjorie Jessup, Peggy
Fox and Regis Hicks. From these
Junior class representatives of
"Blondes," "Brunettes" and "Redheads," one will he elected to reign
supreme at the Spanish Grill when
the Juniors and their friends dance
to the music of Mart Kenney on
January 28.
OUTDOOR CLUB
There will  be  a meeting of the
club on Friday, January 22, at 12.IB
in Ap. Sc. 237.   Plans for the spring
party will b. discussed.

Next Wednesday will see the commencement of the
second series of Vocational Guidance lectures. Therefore
the Ubyssey takes up its task of urging a somewhat unresponsive student body to attend these worthwhile talks.
We do not wish to repeat again all -those phrases that
have been used so often ln editorials on Vocational Guidance.
This time we content ourselves by stating that these lectures
are really extremely Interesting. That you could all discover
for yourselves, so why not attend a lecture experimentally
Just to find out how Interesting they are.

Random Ramblings
t
THE 8TUOENT   PRINOE
A freshette has naively put me on
the spot with that old favorite,
"Does necking 'cheapen' a girl In a
man's eyes?" Her mother Insists
that it does. The freshette is not
so sure.
Overcoming the temptation to do
a Dorothy Dlx myself, I have resorted to the questionnaire method.
Seventeen male students, each
claiming average intelligence and
morality, have been consulted. The
results, however, are vague. Even
Ignoring the fact that only 17 cases
have been considered, and that they
are all acquaintances of mine, one
might have hoped for more definite
proof of something or other.
On one point, however, the 17 are
unanimous; namely, that girls either will be girls, or else they won't
be, and nothing I can say, or their
mothers can say, or any ot the
gentlemen concerned can aay, will
make the slightest difference.
For the benefit however, ot those
girls who will be glrlB, the 17 subjects have agreed very reluctantly,
and with reservations, upon the following general rules.
A girl, to "hold her man," should:
(a) Keep him guessing.
(b) Whatever happens, let him
think it was hfs idea. (IQven if you
have been plotting for weeks.)
(c) Be artistic but brief.
(d) Keep him guessing.
(e) Don't let him know the soore.
Beyond this point the discussion
became, in every case, too technical for practical value, and wide
differences of opinion appeared. A
basketball player emphasised the
Importance ot celibacy during flu
epidemics; a Sclenoe student argued that Ltsterine well gargled
was sufficient precaution in any
plague. A would-be lawyer Insisted
that lifo is too complicated already
to divulge any Information that
might help freshettes make things
worse.
On the whole the questionnaire
was not successful, due to the fact
that I was unable to locate that Invaluable aid to statisticians, the
"average student," the one who
spends exactly $8.83 on an "average" date, and whose views on life
are to be considered representative
ot our fair institution. It is Just
possible that nobody cares a damn
really about what he thinks ot necking, except, possibly the equally
mythical "average freshette"; nevertheless I feel myself morally
bound to hunt him down and learn
his views on this matter. And until I have found him, I muat leave
the queation of freshette morality
to Mother and Mrs. Dix.

candidness in filling out his registration booklet as a freshman seems
worthy of recording. Coming to the
Medical  Information card he duti

Pep Clubbers. Mr. Kenney and the

greatly before such an enthusiastic

why no mention ls ever made ot

What has happened to the great
Gould and his brain child, or rather Mr. Brynelsen's brain child?
I understand that the campaign
tor our building was suspended
last summer ao as not to interfere
with Mayor McGeer's show, the
Diamond Jubilee. Is the accommodating Mr. Gould still waiting
for permission to resume his efforts?
The student body is willing to

screen star is being continually
mobbed by crasy females who want
to touch their god, you naturally
form the opinion that such a man
is not flt for the oompany of other

about Nelson Bddy; in faot, I witnessed a mobbing Incident at the

Yet this fallow  Is no tin god.

ohsrsotor traits that naturally attract womsn. That'a not hla fault,
and It certainly la Hla fortune, aa
fsr as films go.   But hs has more,
an  ability  to  be   liked  by  men,
even a newspaperman suoh aa my
eompanlen,  Osorgs  Wright, who
Hss  lived  through  ths  rslgns of
many stags and sorssn stsrs.
No, Nelson Eddy is a normal man,
handsome   and   with   a   passionate
love of good music.    He considers
the music of his films good in that
it ls popular and yet not of the "hit
of the week' 'sort.    No doubt, anyone with Biddy's good fortune would
follow   the   same   path   as   he  has
taken, despite the adoration of multitudes that must be to some extent
bothersome.
Impressions formed from a ten-
minute interview may not be based
on lengthy observation, but they
have some validity in that they
are "flash ideas." It Mr. Eddy had
been feeling low Tuesday evening
this might have been a far different story.
As It is, he was in good spirits
and I liked him. I'll keep on admiring him until somebody proves me
mistaken.
In the meantime, I'm reserving

Our English Letter
LONDON, Eng.— (By Mail.) —
There are those who feel that the
laudation of the British public for
its steadiness during the recent
political crisis has been a little
overdone, it has been left for the
Economist to
throw cold water
on it.
The Economist
is the oldest financial journal in the
world. One does
not turn to It for
light reading. It is
the sort of thing
the city man peruses with pursed
lips in the saloon
carriage as he
J. E. Nororoa* journeys up to
town on the nine-fifteen from his
"little place" in the country. It is
mostly statistics and crude facts,
such as that "the free rate for Argentine pesos appreciated sharply
from Pes. 17.68 to Pes. 16.85 in
the pound," which is not exactly
mirth-provoking.
*    a    *
The Economist almost mistook
itself for Punch the other day, however, by admitting; an article "By
Mr. Smith" under the heading, "I
Am Splendid."
"In the crisis through which we
havo just passed the nation, by
universal consent, behaved magnificently," Mr. Smith basins.
"Parliament behaved magnificently. The press behaved magnificently. Tho Stock Exchange behaved magnificently. Lloyd's Register of Shipping behaved magnificently. . . . Above all, the common
people behaved magnificently. And
it is the embodiment and representative of the common people
that I write this article."
Mr. Smith goes on to note that
"we English are notoriously unemotional and have but little use for
self-admiration. . . . When we happen to have something specially fine
to our credit, we invariably pass on
without asking for praise. . . But
sometimes we don't get away in
time, and then the weight of evidence, proving how splendid we are,
is too much for us and reluctantly
we have to give judgment in our
own favor.
"This is what has happened In
the last few weeks," he continues.
'.'Archbishops, bishops, city editors
and leader writers have all refused
to leave me unadvised of my almost
unimaginable greatness."
"But after all, I did not decide on
the abdication and I could not have
stopped it. I might, of course, have
sent the wrong sort of letter to the
papers. But if I had they would not
have printed it. I might, I am told,
have formed a 'King's Party.' But
if you were here and now t_ order
me to form a 'King's Party,' I
simply should not know how to set
about it.
"One useful hint, indeed ,is given
by The Times, which points out
that I could have broken windows
by throwing stones. That is very
true, but the stone-throwing would
have been followed by a night spent
In a police cell, which would have
been uncomfortable.
"Apart from that, a deep instinct
whispers to me that merely to refrain from throwing stones Is not
in itself native greatness. It is
undoubtedly pussling . . .
"Of course, if this were a foreign
country the solution would be simple. I should say at once that the
talk about my being so fine wns all
make-believe and eyewash, which
are in much use abroad. But that
theory will not work here—not with
the archbishop and the foreign secretary in it together. Those names
in themselves are a guarantee
against gammon.
"I am driven by weight of authority, both temporal and spiritual, to the only possible conclusion
—that for some reason, whioh I
don't quite grasp myself, I am
splendid."

With Fraternity formals, the Junior Prom and the Science coming

BROWN 8ROS. have some new and different ideas as regards these.
Pink or mauve cycleman blooms can be made up to look like baby
orchids. Or there are the gorgeous colored iris which are now making
their debut as corsages.
Roses are always popular. Brown Bros, suggests that you combine
them with violets, lily of the valley or pink and white bouvardia for
beautiful and fragrant sprays.
Gardenias are at their biggest and best right now. And don't forget
orchids, which you may order in mauve, pink, brown, or green from

Three
Speakers
Canad

Saskatchewan Given
Unanimous Decision
Over B. C. Debaters
UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN, Jan. 20 (W.I.P.U.)—The
annual debate in competition for
the McGoun Cup, in which Saskatchewan received the unanimous
decision of the judges over the
British Columbia debaters, was held
in Convocation Hall on Friday,
January 16. The visiting team from
the University of B. C, which took
the negative, was made up of Tom
Marshall and Alfred Carlson, while
the affirmative was upheld by W.
R. Lederman and Craig Munroe, of
Saskatchewan.
UNIFIED ARMY
The resolution of the debate was;
"Resolved that Canada should contribute to the defence forces of tbo
British Commonwealth of Nations."
Bill Lederman, President of the Debating Directorate for Saskatchewan was the flrst speaker for the
affirmative. He advocated a unified
army, navy, and air-forces to be
maintained by certain units of tbe
Commonwealth in accordance with
their wealth and population.
The Commonwealth defence forces
must bo subordinated to a civil
command—an Empire civil executive. This would be in chargo of
foreign policy of the Empire as
well. He discussed the feasibility
and deairability of this plan, and
pointed out the economic advantages which would occur to Canada.
SACRIFICE INDEPENDENCE
Mr. Marshall, tho first negative
speaker, said that the word "uni-
tive" contemplated Inflicting punishment for other things besides
defence. He said that fear was
never a stable base for peaoe, and
that security through preparedness
is a chauvinistic fallacy. He claimed
a unified Commonwealth foreign
policy was impractical due to the
difference in outlook of the various
states and, furthermore, undesirable for Canada because it would
mean sacrificing some of her independence.
Mr. Munroe stated that Canada's
peace policy may be assured only
if the scheme proposed was adopted, unless more drastic measures
such as isolation from, or alliance
with another power are resorted to.
Correspondence
Editor,  "The  Ubyssey".
Dear Madame:
Occasionally one of your columnists stumbles upon an idea
among his empty drivel, and
plays with idle curiosity, in
much the same manner as a child
finding a diamond ring in a sand
pile. In your last week's issue,
"Darby" pointed out that most of
the   leading high  schools  of our
British
Dislike
Victory Attitude
Judgment on Canadian
Debating) Methods
MONTREAL (NFCUS) —
Following their recent tour of
Canada and Newfoundland,
which got under way in October and landed the British
Team, consisting of Messrs.
Bernard Ungerson of London
University, and Malcolm Mac-
Ewen of the University of
Edinburgh, back at Montreal
in the middle of December,
these oracles have spoken
frankly of their likes and dislikes of the system of debating generally ln vogue at Canadian universities. Included
ln their suggestions are some
rather startling comments.
NOT CONTESTS
By the time the team reached the
University of Alberta tbey were
somewhat disappointed ln what
they thought was an obvious desire
to emphasise tho "winning" ot the
debate, which they felt made debating too muoh of a contest. They
would prefer to debate with their
opponents, rather than against
them; tbey want debatea to be discussions, and not contests.
Judges — to them — are a curse,
not a necessity. They would abolish all Judges except the audience,
snd urge that a more general use
of the Parliamentary style, which
has been adopted by not a few Canadian universities, would do much
to put debating on a sounder and
more useful footing.
OBBATING  BAD  HERB
But, if tbey did not find the Canadian system all they hoped for,
they at least found the hospitality
of Canadian students left nothing
to be desired, and, when they arrived in the United States, and
learned of one college which suggested exchanging speeches beforehand so rebuttals oould be prepared, they were free to admit that,
on the whole, the Canadian system
was not as unllkeable as they had
at flrst thought concluded.
Debating—which should be tbe
fort of every university in these
days when lt Is essential to learn
to express one's self—is in a bad
way at many Canadian universities, and just what to do about it
Is becoming a very real problem.

Finally, but not least, the renowned philosopher haa Insulted us
ln true eastern style by adding to

we fail to appreciate human values

OLYMPIC IMPORT FOR
VICTORIA
However, Varsity's chances of
regaining   tho   mythical    Inter-
City   championship  are  slightly
dimmer when two annoying angles cropped up yesterday. Number one came when Manager Joe
Rita,  acting  in  good  faith  and
fellowship,   etc..   answered   Victoria  Coach  Archie  McKinnon's
request to use a couple of "Up
Island fellows" with a gracious
"Okay."   Joe received   a   slight
shock yesterday when he learned
that  one   of   the   "up-lslanders"
was   the   one   and   only   Hugh
Thompson,     Canadian    Olympic
mller In 1886.

Varsity Is Good Match
For Master Showmen
Smarting slightly from their last night's defeat at the hands ot the
local Newsy outfit, A. M. Saperstein's "Most Imitated" basketball team
The Varsity team was never quite able to overcome this handicap,
before starting any horse-play, and as a result they were able to do
both. Scoring practically at will through moat of the game, the duaky
gentlemen came through with a 48-43 victory, and at the same time
played a swell arrangement ot the Harlem "hysterics."
Capitalising on tho  ususl  bewilderment of their opponents  In
~~theae exhibition tilts, ths Dsrktown Strutters swspt down ths floor
tlmo snd again to pile up a 12-8 msrgln bsfore the Collage oagers
svsn partially awskenod.
made plenty sure of a win yesterday noon ln a crowded Student gym
although they came near to doing ao on several occasions.   Towards tbe
end of the half Matthlaon and Bardsley begun to click, with Ran finishing
top man for both teams with 14 points.
DAZZLING PLAY
At the asms tlms they wars scoring bssksts, ths Harlemltea
were also presenting a flrat-elaas floor-show, daslng the home boys
with a parfset bsrrags of bsskstbsll tricks. Whilst ssvsral of the
Qlobe-Trottsra would toss the ball around with amaslng ssss, another man would snssk undsr ths bsskst, snsg s psss, and prsstol—
another two points on ths score-board.
VARSITY  s-LASHY
In the closing minutes of the game, the Trotters showed how to play
defensive basketball, keeping control of the ball for minutes at a time.
Rolling the melon along the floor, hiding it behind their backs, rolling
lt up their arms, and ending with a football formation, they had the
Varsity boys completely flustered. Strong, a newcomer this year, proved
himself the ace comedian of the team, with his adroit ball-handling and
clever by-play.

Province   Notes
Out Coeds 27-26
Clarke, Wilson, Nixon
Star
A last-minute shot by Mary Code
gave Province senior basketeers
the lead for the flrst time in the
mighty battle staged Tuesday night
at McDonald Qym and a 27-26 decision over the fighting Varsity
squad.
TAKE LEAD
Starting the game with a rush,
the co-eds Jumped into the lead
with quick-breaking plays but sensational sniping by Passerini
brought the Newsies up to tie the
score   11-nll   at half  time.
Again the blue and gold team
forged ahead after the breather and
at one time led 19-13, but again
Province cut down their lead, and
this time nosed them out in the
final count.
HARD CHECKING
Hard checking and extraordinary
success with difficult shots featured the co-ed's game. Province
found It exceedingly hard to try to
shoot from anywhere near the basket on account of Varsity's sone
defense and super guards, Ena
Clarke and Ruth Wilson. Another
outstanding co-ed was Laura Nixon,
who scored many of Varsity's
points.—NBVISON.
Tom Williams—Freshman; Canadian football backfleld star;
starred in track in high school
days;; will run 440 in Victoria.
Alec Lucas—2nd-year man; played
senior basketball last year; holds
Varsity high jump record. Nicknames, "Luke" and "Seagull."
Entered in 440, shot and high
jump.
Evan ap Roberts—1st year Varaity;
another Canadian football backfleld ace; will enter hurdles, and
shot.
Jim McCammon — Husky 4th-year
Scienceman; captain of this
year's track team; holds Varsity
record in short; intends to take
Art Chapman in that event in the
Capital City.
Jack Harvey—4th-year Commerce
stude; holds Western Intercollegiate record in high hurdles;
should be a sure bet in the "leapfrogging" event tonight.
Manager Joe Rita — Hardworker,
efficient, and effective; will journey with the boys to take care
of thlsa and thata—looks like a
winner!
Coach Maury Van Vllet—Needs no
introduction; he's the tops as far
as all men athletes are concerned
—will keep the boys to "the early
to bed, early to rise" resolution
on th voyage.
—P. J. T.
HOCKEY MEN PREPPING FOR
WASHINGTON ICE FRAY
Mathias Guides Strong Squad—Taylor,
Usher Back—Fast Newcomers
Whipping into shape for the annual hockey fray with
Washington Huskies, set for January 29 or 30, Varsity's ice
team are showing real class aa they practice under the
watchful eye of Coach Gordie Mathias, one-time star defense
in Vancouver's commercial loop.
MATHIAS 18 COACH
With the enviable materlsl with
whioh to work, Msthlss will be
able to mix up a highly deleotsble
hookey dlah—one that should be
herd to best. The men ot the
equa-colda ars soms of the finest,
most sfflolsnt hookey players to
appesr st Varsity for many s season, snd with s number of unified
workouts under thslr bslts should
*-*ry methodlesly go plaoaa. In
the only game they havs plsysd
this y**r, the 'Birds romped
down the loo to an 11-1 win over
Fogg Motors. A soore like that
naturally   apssks  for   Itself.
HARMKR   AND PROVENZANO
ON  OEp-ENSE
In the defensive zones will be big,
steady-playing Jim Harmer, aided
on the opposite portion of tbe ice
by equally hefty Angle Provensona,
last year's  star defense  man.
A big block winner by virtue of
his consistently outstanding performances on the ice, Clarence Taylor will make a recurrence of his
fast, tricky, yet methodical and
highly effective style when he appears on the flrst string forward
line as left wing. Assisting Clarence on the lead line are Paul Trus-
sell and Jim Usher, both of them
outstanding men on the skates —
Trussell a fast and tricky player—
Usher a hard-shooting, play-making
sensationalist, who almost stacks
up to Clarence Taylor as a breathtaking individualist on skates.
Newcomers to the team are the
brothers Guiget, Charles and Marcel—both of them fast and skilfully
alert. Also there is the versatile
Jack Stevenson, who ls able to hold
down both a forward-line and a defensive position. Depositing his
Samsonlan frame 'twlxt the twine
and the posts will be sharp-eyed
Hugh Shlrreff, goalie from the
prairies, where tbey are born on
skates. And then there are the
hockeylstB   of   last   year  who   con-
Men Won't Co-operate
—With Women
The proposed badminton tourney for men and women to be
held every Thursday afternoon
has as yet met with no co-operation from the men. These meets
were planned so as to accommodate a few of the males who
felt that they were not getting
enough time on the floor. The
girls have the floor on Thursday from 1 to 5.30, and lt was
only through the kindness of
Miss Moore tbat the idea was
given any consideration at all.
So if these men who wish to
play will kindly get ln touch
with Mr. Van Vliet the program
will continue as previously arranged, but If they fail to do this
the time will revert back to the
women exclusively.

Annual Feed
Friday night saw once-hungry
Varsity oarsmen push back their
chairs ready to hear after-banquet
quips of coaches and club officers.
Coaches Brown, West and Brand
in turn regaled the laughing rowers
with salty yarns interspersed with
the odd verbal kiok-in-the-pants.
Coach Brown threw a bombshell into the proceedings by announcing
the commencement of early morning work-outs commencing the flrat
of     February.
tlnue to show up well — Maury
Lambert, Framp Price, and Frank
Perry.
With an organization like that
the hockey team should be able
to give Washington a highly interesting and doubtless difficult hockey nut to crack when they meet
later on this month. Watch for the
date!—F.  P.

. The Harlem Globe Trotters are
tho moot bored bsskstssrs In ths
game today. Tholr natural ability
to do strongs things with ths mslon
hss put thsm In s spot whsre the
most intsrsstlng of sports no longer
hss Its ehsrm. It bseomss a Job,
routine work, fist and cold. It contains no life beoause It hss become
thslr moans of life. They travel
600-mile trips In s small eoaoh to
put on shows before the people who
would, In nine essss out of ton,
rsthsr sss thsm loos. Smsll wonder that thsss msn, all oollege
grsdustss, become bored.
They have fun during the clowning acts thoy are ao noted for, you
say? Not s chanoe. It is sll part
of a complicated routine like any
vaudeville or night-club aet. Strong,
who crested suoh a furore with his
aorobstlcs yesterday, Is simply making use of hie natural flair for
ahowmanahlp, and hla hands, the
largest "In the world". Ford, reputed to hsve the longest arms of
any psrson on the Continent, Is another who makes use ef his nstursl
peculiarity to the beet advantage.
With hla extraordinary reaoh, he
oan mske his ehsek look silly, and,
as a routine Job, he proeesds to do
so.
Naturally, their ehow la good. It
is wsll rehearsed, and Is put on by
experts In the game. It le fast, and
clssn, snd esn be turned Into a
good brsnd of bsskstbsll, but to
thess msn whoss living It hss bs-
come, who go to ehow after show
to brssk the monotony of travelling, It hss bseoms, like any routine Job, a bore.
