Province Cup Goes
to Senior "A"
The Varsity Senior A basketballers
carried off the B. 0. Championship
Monday night when they beat
Kelowna 89-17 In a rough and fairly
Close game. Since they won the first
game 80-20 Varsity has a total soore
of 89-37 on the Series. The boys re-
;urned home Tuesday night with the
provincial cup in their possession and

Imonton, Alberta, in further eliminations for the Canadian champion-

Chance to progress towards this goal
V they have a team fully the equal
>f any in Canada as haa been shown
n the recent series and the games
against Washington University.
Monday's game was too rough to
be a particularly brilliant exhibition
Of baskotball. The Hornets fought
desperately ln an attempt to seize
victory from the new champs but
Were unable to progress much against
Varsity's fast attack and steady de-
tenBe. Kelowna started out fust and,
because the locals were somewhat
battered from thu previous game,
lumped Into an early lead. Varsity,
however, gradually came to lifo and
|«d 13-9 at half time. During the
second half Varsity added to their
margnln until the flnnl score stood
29-17. The last ten minutes of play
were rather ragged as both teams
began to feel the strain of the gamo
without  substitutions.
On the serieB Varsity was unquestionably' the better team. Although
handicapped by a strange gym which
Was, moreover, considerably smaller
than usual and very low, the Varsity athletes put up a splendid game
in all departments. The forward line
Showed up especially well, the combination, speed and accuracy of the
{'layers being remarkable. Kelowna

in favor of the spirit of the rule but

Inter-Class Track
Meet Set for
Varsity's cinder path stars, both
men and women are all set to do
their stuff at Brockton Point tomorrow, when thu historic lnter-class
meet takes place. For weeks Olass
Athletic Reps, have been lining up
all their possible talent and eaoh ll
confident that his olass will come out
on top. The meet should be the most
successful and hardest-fought in years
as each class is eager to gain any
points that go toward winning tho
Governor's Cup.
No one class has a great share of
the stars, although the Science classes which are combining for the event
will be tbe favorites. Art Fell will be
certain to collect a few points in the
sprints, as will Selby in the distance
events, Hob Alpen Ik sure to win and
will likely Bet, a new record In the
pole vault and place well un in the
weights. Along with Dtnoin he will
make the Engineers' entry n formidable one.
Aria '30, the winner of the meet laat
year, has a very good chance of making It two in u row, Any class that
has such first, class mou as Chappell,
Oaiidin and Dunn In Its ranks is sure
to make lis presence known before
the day Ik over. This trio can bo
counted upon to Burner the majority
of the points In the 880, mile and 2
rniios while- Roberts will represent
his class in tho shorter distances.

Arts ".".), "Cokie" Jumped 20 feet, ll|/2
Inches In Seattle, which beats the pre-
iii Varsity record by more than a
foot, so another old mark i.t pi actio-
ally certain to fall hero. Shields is
nl"0 very good in the weights and
may cause the old records to tremble.
Todd, Chandler and MacDonald will
also be out for '29 and should collect
a few points between them.
The Henlorn have two regular point
getters In MrWilliams nnd Hatfield.
HathVld has been jumping around 5
feet 10 incho-i consistently and if he
keeps this up another record will go
by the hoard. MeWIIUamti hasn't been

KeK.K* and the Daily
Killtor, I'byssey,
Dear Madam:
I would like to give Council's view
of one or two misunderstandings in
the dally papers.
With regard (o the lectures on
"Companionate Marriage": I do not
think It Is remiss to ninke a public announcement of the fact that you and
I were agreed ihat, should the University authorities, for some unthinkable reason, wish to curtail the studenls' right to have speakers address
them on selected topics, we would be
together ln defending that right. The
dully press to the contrary, the Uni-
verslt) authorities have not taken
such action ami, so fur as I am aware,
do not  intern! lo take it.
Tuesday evening Mr. F, Pllkington
Informed me that the Literary Society proposed hold lug an open meeting at 3 jein. Hie next day at whioh
Mr, England :>f the Ku Klux Klan
would give au addrees on his organisation. Mr. Pllkington wished to
know if the proposed by-law brought
forwttrd on Maroh 19th applied. I
asked him that the lecture ne postponed for a week while Council considered its propriety, He did not
agree, I Informed him that, If he
maintained that position of defiance,

With this issue the "Ubyssey" eoases publication for tlie year.
The hard-worked staff is about to transfer its energy to lonK-neu-lected
considerations of essays and spring examinations With some relief
but with more regret, we end our labours. If the editing of n bi-
weekly paper is an exacting task, it has unique, privileges. For one
thing wo have been able to say what we think, how we think, and
as often as we think. Thia ia a privilege worth many hours of labour.
Nor are we ever contradicted—except in the next issue—and always
we have the last word. Therefore if our homiletio disbursements have
fallen on unkind or deaf ears, it matters little, since we have "had
our opinions and printed them."
In the hands of capable successors wo leave the high cause of
college journalism. We are confident that they will carry on to new
successes; will scale new heights as yet untried. May they have
always things to say and say them bravely. For our readers, in Haying farewell, we have this kindly wish; may they be just, as successful in the coming examinations as we intend to be.
track meet
Tomorrow is the day of the annual inter-class track meet i and it
is expected that the general calibre of the event will be quite as high
as in previous years. If weather conditions are at all favorable the
dhanees are that a number of records will fall, as track men have been
following a rigid training program for some time past.
The work of Traok Club officials this year merits considerable
praise, The program outlined for the season is probably the most
extensive in the history of the sport. Last year's indoor meet was a
good innovation and merited a great deal more support than it received,
The annual relay has been praised by faoulty officials as being the most
efficiently organised of any yet. The meet with Washington meant
more than the soore indicated and shows that there are men at this
University who, with a little more coaching will be fitted to enter first-
olass competition almost anywhere in the country. One more meet is
still to be staged with Puget Sound. This will oomplete what is
generally considered to be the best and most ambitious schedule of
events yet mapped out in University track circles.
K.K.K. and Daily Press
(Continued from Page 1)
the only course open to me was to
cancel the lecture entirely. He kindly
agreed to wait until 10 a.m. Wednesday, at 8 a,m. a special informal meeting of Counoil agreed that the lecture
should be postponed. Mr. Pllkington
Was so Informed.
As a result we have a great headline, "Varsity Council and Students
Clash." And under this head: "At
the eleventh hour the Literary Society
was forced to cancel Its scheduled
meeting." "The Counoil was enabled
to do this by virtue of Us own by-law
of Monday, March 19." On March 19
Council gave the customary two-weeks
notice of the following by-law: "That
all (University) organisations inviting
outside speakers to address University
students shall apply to the Students'
Council for permission to hold such
meeting; and Council shall express its
approval or dissent in a separate motion of its minutes." The by-law Is
not yet in effect as any thinking
person realizes. The first clause
merely puts in black and white what
has always been the practice. We
have forms of application for rooms
on which three lines are left to be
fitted out explaining the "purpose of
the meeting." This part is not always
filled out, but so long as Council
knows what that purpose Is (and organisations usually do as the courtesy
of explaining ln plenty of time), we
have not demanded the technicality of
completing the form lu detail. The
second clause was a courtesy to the
Faoulty Committee which has and always has had the right of reading over
our minutes and discussing Items of
them. The various topics of discussion of the clubs are lost to others
than Counoil tn the Item of the
minutos that "rooms and dates bo approved."
Accdnortoonoutcg hlcat yndw
According to accounts the Literary
Society hod made arrangements for
this address over a period of from
three to eight weeks, but one Council
member heard about It Just 11 hours
before, and Council as a body Just 6
hours before the meeting was scheduled, Meetings of the Literary Sooiety "have never been banned before," because obviously it has not
been neeesssry.
In accordance with the regular
privilege ot student presidents I consulted a member of tha University administration. I gave the substance of
this to Mr. Pllkington privately. It
was given to the press without the
consent of either party concerned
It was also announced that
an effort will be made to teat the
validity and scope of the by-law, Students' Counoil has control of any

In conclusion I should like to suggest that the press tlnd out more

persons who are anxious to carry a
private disagreement before a public

of the occurrence. In this instance It

someone has given It the complexion
of a momentous conflict comparable

month were even greater in number.
It is hoped that despite the lateness
ot the year that the ever-increasing
interest In debating will again manifest Itself and that a gratifying
audience will be present on FRIDAY
Freshette-Junior Debate
On Thursday noon, March 29, In
Arts 100 women of Arts '29 will contest with Freshettes for the inter-class
debating shield. The subject is one
that is being much discussed at the
present time and there should be a
large turn-out. The subject is "Resolved that 'Student Government' in
this University is a fallacy," and the
Juniors, Margaret Grant and Muriel
Bowes, will uphold the affirmative,
while Jean Berry and Marion Sangster
wtll try to prove, tor the sake of Arts
'81, that "Student Government" is
what we have nothing else but.

It Is the end. The Muok Staff haa
cracked its last oraok and punned Its
last pun. Today It resigns from Its
lofty position In favor of the "Totem"
whose comlo strips henceforth will
hold undisputed sway on the campus.
So now we bid farewell io our Innumerable patient readers and our tew
Impatient contributors. We have done
our best for the Muck page and if at
times the humour has become strained
we have been the first to realise it.
We make no excuaes other than to
remark that the writing of about 4,000
words of muck per week is no sinecure.
This official farewell ahould be full
of tears and sobs, but, to tell the
truth, we heave a long sigh ot relief
and dance a dance of Joy that the
whole business Is finished.
Believe tne, brother,
From now on
We're through with Muck pages.

That's the way Umpire Varsity Shoe Manufacturers work It.
They own thslr own tanneries, eliminating middlemen's profits,
and their tremendoua output gives continuous employment to
