City Manager Plan
Unnecessary In
Vancouver
Speakers Club Wins
Debate with U.B.C.
Forum
The feasibility of a City Manager
for Vanoouver waa the issue in
Tuesday's debate between the Forum team and the Vancouver Speakers' Club.
Judges' deoislon went to the Vanoouver Speakers Club who uphold
the nsgatlve side of the resolution
"that the City Manager plan of oivlo
administration should be adopted In
Vanoouver."
Unlveralty apeakera were Robert
Bonner  and  Arthur  Fouks.  Hurt
Morrow and Peter Houston represented the visiting toam.
Robert  Bonner lead   the   affirmative with  a scathing attack  on the
present    civlo    administration.    He
charged that the heavy tax Increase,
the   decline   in   publio   service,   and
general   incompetency   at   the    City
Hall was  a  result  of  "ignorant  administration."
The only solution would be a City
Manager type of government similar
to a corporation with a head exeoutive and a board of directors.
NO CORRUPTION
Burt Morrow, leader of the negative, blamed the city's deplorable
financial condition on its heavy
building program, relief costs and
schools. "There is no corruption in
this city,"  he declared.
He maintained that a city manager would be a dictator and that the
Vancouver people showed their disapproval by their plebiscite against
the  City Manager plan.
The City Council came in for a
tongue-lashing when Arthur Fouks,
seoond affirmative speaker, in a
counter attack accused the aldermen
of general Incompetence "square
pegs ln round holes. Just a debating
club with the mayor and council an
eternal   see-saw."
The city engineer, comptroller, and
solicitor also came under his censure.
Peter Houston, negative speaker,
denied the city was deteriorating.
"Vancouver," he said, "haa risen
from comparative obscurity to third
city in Canada. In its fifty-two years
of existence it has come to rank

STUDENTS VS.
CRIMINALS?
"Is Psychology Common Sense?"
was the title of the lecture given by
Dr. J. E. Morsh when he spoke at an
open meeting ot the Psychology Club
ln Agrioulture 100 Thursday noon.
Dr. Morsh took the stand that psychology consisted of a great deal
more than common sense and gave
Instances of how amateur students
of human nature, who depended
simply upon common sense, frequently  got  into  difficulties.
LEAP YEAR?
For an example, he said- that a
man might turn down an offer ot
marriage from a beautiful red-headed girl simply because he had heard
that red-headed -women are spit-fires.
Psychologists have proved that
blonds and brunettes are Just as likely to have nasty tempers as redheads.
Another piece of common sense
knowledge ls that criminals have
certain distinguishing features. Psychological research has shown that
there 1b an equal percentage of persons of criminal appearance at Dartmoor Prison and  Oxford University.
The next guest speaker will be
Warden Cooper of tbe Saskatchewan Penitentiary.

INMBMORIAM
Today commemorates the life of one of the men who laid the
foundations of the University of British Columbia, President F. F.
"Wesbrook. On keeping with one of the few traditions of this
youthful institution, the Senior class will take part in a service,
-which will be held by the Wesbrook Seat in front of the Library.
More important than the memory of the actual accomplish
ments of Dr. Wesbrook is the undying picture of Dr. Wesbrook,
the man.   Few pioneers have faced disappointments, obstacles, and
honest labour with the enthusiasm   and   aggressive   energy   that
characterized Dr. Wesbrook.
He came to the province of British Columbia on the understanding that the future University of B. C. was to be the most
oomplete educational institution Canada had known. The tragic
story of the early years of the University is well known now. The
birth of the academic child turned out to be unfortunately prema
ture, and the babe was placed in the famous "Fairview incubator"
there to grow in strength until its ultimate removal to Point Grey.
The disappointments of watching his cherished plans fall to
ruin, of receiving instructions at regular intervals from the B. C.
Government to reduce expenditures, and of fighting incessantly
for the very life of the University during the years of the Great
War, accentuated the greatness of Dr. Wesbrook's nature.
His greatest ideal was "to carry on", in spite of the personal
sacrifices involved. His generosity, resolute strength of will, devotion to duty, and love of humanity drove him forward through the
hardest years of this University's career.
His students learned to respect him, and to love him. His genuine and profound interest in all the people round him won for
him that precious thing in life, true friendship.
And still today, we students show our appreciation and our
friendship for a man we never met, but a man we cannot forget.
His eagerness to fight for his cause has inspired his successors in
their efforts to assure a noble future for our University.
Hie spirit of this man must live on in the hearts of us students
who are reaping the harvest of benefits from the seed whieh fell
so abundantly from his hand.
INTRA-MURALS
Much has been written in vain efforts to rouse the students of
the Campus from a state of apparently permanent lethargy and
indolence. Once again a plea goes forth for at least mild interest
in the extensive intra-mural program which has been prepared
by the energetic Maury Van Vliet.
It is possible that the total absence of support, which has
characterized the intra-mural events until now, has been the result
of inactivity of last year's class athletic representatives, or of a
general ignorance about intra-murals.
By now, however, a new group of athletic representatives has
been elected, and perhaps, too, a few students will have become
aware of the existence of inter-class competitions.
The suggested fields for class rivalry are much the same as
last year. Volleyball, basketball, track events, cross country races,
rope climbing and English rugby ore all included in the list of
activities. But at the moment only four teams have appeared to
compete for the volleyball crown, whereas there are twelve potential teams on the Campus. This, then, is the student answer to
Maury's efforts!
]_ast year, the support was excellent. Students who ordinarily
had no opportunity to display their mediocre athletic abilities had
chance upon chance to become the heroes of their class, or to gain
a little additional knowledge about the sport involved.
The intra-mural program was created for the benefit of students. It is no hardship to those running the scheme if student
support fails.   Intra-mural activity will be curtailed or terminated.

"Not on a cemetery slope could I
be happy," she had exclaimed, "my
cheat crushed with a thousand
tombstones. Nor on a hill, for a hill
could never be a grave, but only a
spur to wandering."
The seriousness had oome without
warning. I had laughtfd at her fleroe
solemnity, "Then you shall be burled
down In the five-acre, where the
spuds grow highest, and you oan
have potato flowers to wreath you."
Her absorption broke Immediately
and the laughter ran down her
throat. "Yes, yes," she said, "tbat
would be as wall. There would be
potato eyes to the darkness of the
land, and the under-soll blindness
would  bs gone."
The last of her thoughtfulness was
gone.    I threw an   arm   about   her
waist.   We lay on the ground laughing, and talked no more of death.
For tho hills and the   growing

ELECTION MISTAKES
Class elections are over. -It would be interesting to know the
number of students who are aware that elections had even been
held. The quorum for a class is apparently that number present
at the meeting. It could not be otherwise when actual experience
is considered, for there is little doubt that a ten per cent attendance at any one class election meeting was a commendable average!
The new executives of the various classes face a term of office
which entails no tangible form of assistance from their invisible
electorate, and less credit or thanks for their labours throughout
the year. It is to be hoped that this glowing future will not deter
thein from performing  their  respective  duties.
One stupid mistake marred the otherwise drab elections. The
President of the Commerce class wns announced elected, was later
found to be "not elected," and eventually the "powers that be"
summoned sufficient might to declare the election of the Commerce
Class  null  and  void.
The error made was of a complicated type. Failure to distinguish between a man named Smith, antl a man named Smith caused
unutterable confusion. The Messrs. Smith must feel a trifle embarrassed over the whole affair, although they are but indirectly connected with it.
New elections arc too likely to leave ruffled feelings behind
them to be recommended very frequently, but under the present
circumstances, there  is nothing else to  be done.
Our First
President
X flrst met her when she oame as
a new school teacher to board at our
farm. I drove down to meet her at
the little lake-side landing where the
mall ferry docked. She had walked
off the little old boat, tall and
straight, with a laughing smile that
swept the strangeness away on the
wind of the early autumn night. I
drove baok along the dirt road to
the farm. The windshield was down
and the wind In our faoes. She gas-
ed about and above her for a few
minutes as though trying to comprehend the stars, and then tossed her
head to catch all the ooolness of the
night-air. Suddenly she took off her
hat and shook her blond hair out
into the wind. I looked at her with
sudden Intentness. Her head was
back and her lips parted against the
rush of night wind. Then as we
passed a farmhouse her face was
outlined momentarily against the
squares of window light.
Where haa the light that framed
her face, and where haa the ahadow that was her face gone now?
Where would one be led. If he
dared to follow that swift beam,
so brief, so slight?
Here, where tho large western
maples stand alono on tho orown
of the hill, V oould alt aa a boy, listening to the faint and distant
sound of a bugle eon-tag up from
the valley. It seamed to draw me,
draw me beyond tho treea and
down Into tho vaUey, aad from
thero to valley after valley aad so
to the ends of the earth. Now I
do not hear It any more. Its sweet
clear haunting waa a Ue to lead
men on, to take their feet frasa behind the plow, and then to lot them
die, lost fbeever froan tho otsan
smell of frosh-turned earth. There
was my brother ... To follow lights
and sounds aad shadows ta to hs
aa brief as thoy.
Through the Holds we had walked,
her fair hair loose, her breasts swaying like the half-ripened oata around
us   aa   she   moved,   her   bat  In   her
hand.    "Oh look," ahe cried   auddenly.   Then she was gone, her haa waving In her hand as she chased! after
a  great  yellow  and  black   swallowtail.    I stood  dismayed for a moment to see her turn into the ripening
grain.    Then  I waa  running  myaalf
after the  figure  walat  deep   In   the
yeUowtng stalks.   The butterfly weat
dancing irregularly across the field's
that   blenohed   for   the   harvest.     A
cook crowed baok at the farmhouse.
Where she caune from the dawn
did  not break to the  crowing  of
the oook.  She waa of the world that
hears the wall of trains by night,
the long drawn out note of misery,
that   goea   alngtn*   of   far-piaaes,
broken.   She  knew the   call   that
goea before to draw the long line
of oars after It through the gips
of  the  hills.   Rat,  like the  bugle,
this call, too, la false, can lead to
nothing,   saving   more  oltles,    oan
never lead a man to a plaoe where
sounds    of    darkening    bind    him
closer to  the   frultfulness   of   his
acres.
She told me one night and her lips
parted   in   surprise   when   I   laughed
at her dismay. "You'll have to marry
me   now."   I   said.     "You'll    not    be
teaching    school    for    another   year
now, nor any of those foolish things
you   said   you   would."     Then   I   had
gone out and  was immediately drunk
with     the     night     about     me.       My
thoughts raced like the moon  through
"He made more contributions to
the university than any other man,
but his most preoious gift was the
example of his own heroic struggle
for his Ideals against overwhelming
odds." These words uttered by Prof.
Larsen epitomise ths spirit of Dr.
Wesbrook.
Frank Falrchlld Wesbrook was
one of the founders of the university,
and Its flrst president. In 1018 he resigned his position as Dsan of the
College of Medicine and Surgery at
the University of Minnesota to take
up a government appointment to
establish a university in the far
western province of British Columbia.
Provided with a virtual promise
by the B.C. Oovernment that the
University of B.C. was to be equal
to any In Canada, Dr. Wesbrook
made his plans. A site was chosen,
In the wilderness of Point Grsy,
whioh the founder alone recognised
for Its value. A Solenoe building was
started In 1014 and temporary quarters taken ln Falrvlsw—"The Fair-
view Shacks."
A nucleus for the University Library was personally Installed by Dr.
Wesbrook in the shacks, part of thla
being Invaluable books purohassd by
him In England.
DISAPPOINTMENT
Construotlon of the Sclenoe Building waa auddenly brought to a standstill by the Intensity of war effort.
However, Dr. Wesbrook maintained
his Ideal through this and other disheartening setbacks. He carried on
throughout the war, despite the lack
of adequate financial support or
teaohlng staff.
Although Dr. Wesbrook died before the armistice on Oct. 30, 1918,
his Idealism and devotion to a single
cause Inspired others to oarry out
his plans. The University was Anally moved to its own oampua In
Point Orey in 1938.
His memorial is not a grave
stone, or a stone seat ln front of
the Library, but an entire unlveralty, a unlveralty developing out of
hla plana, dreams and spirit.
the clouds and yet, like the moon
against the trees they made little
like the boisterous wind sweeping up
from the lake valley. I was as happy
as the wind-blown grain ln the fields
progress. My spirit ran wild ln me
when the head is young and green,
when the seed has Just begun to
form. I laughed aloud to think how
the party lines would be a twitter
with the chatter and head-waggle of
old maids who had somehow learned
that seven months was too short a
time to plow a field and bring it to
orop. Then I startsd to run for
sheer delight In my power to run. I
was like the bull that bellows IU
viotory across the countryside at
night.
These Holds had my grandfather
quered with oxen, these fertile
ho had wrenched living and
fruitful from the womb of wUder-
neaa. To these ho had brought
hla wife to stag and be lovely for
a few yeara, to bear and raise
ohlldaen and die. Here, crying In
the easly moralng, had my father
by the graoe of hla mother's
strength and the country doctor,
and In hla time my father worked
stump aanoh lato good plow land
and ln Ma turn brought a woman
to alng aad be> beautiful, to bear
ohlldren aad to die.
And theni the crossing on the ferry
on the oold spring night, the coating
of hoar frost along the decks and
along the raB, and we two leaning
on the rail watching now the little
town fading away, and now, the near
shore coming- on. "You're aure
you'll' be all right?" I asked.
"Yeo, Til be okay. You know what
Doo Hooker said."
"Yes, yes, I know," I replied, "I
suppose- Pm  just nervous."
The dhrlcnees grows oloser about
the land, and ln the dark the night-
bird for whom I Joined these words
goes down and upt baok and forth
across the evening- sky. It Is too
dash to foflow Ita flight, but its
cry Is forever over the fields oaa
be felt passing across the hilltop.
Sometimes for a muiua.it the bird
Is quiet, and then lata the silence
beats the down-roar and op-thunder of Urn hollow-booming wings.
A atar la out and I think I shall
now go down.   A large white moth
flutters off Into the dark  secrecy
of the trees.  The night Mrd ls atlll
walling  across   the  sky,    but    the
whistle   has  faded   and   the   bugle
has  gone  forever.    The  stars  are
thin and very far away In the evening sky.

Recent news from other oampuses
may have lead the humble U.B.C.
student to think that nothing but
military training and events gain
prominence at these plaoes, but,
from the Manitoba trl-weekly, we
learn that the Dramatlo Sooiety
there Is producing an original must

ORIGINAL. SONG
We publish the following song, one
of the eighteen written for the show
by Samuel Seetner, Barle Beattie
and Ed. Parker as timely and—well,
"Flora's Angora."
Since dear little Flora has bought an
Angora
I weep for the state of my clothes.
I  view  with alarm  the  fluff on  my
arm,
It's a mesa aa everyone knowa.
It'a simply revolting, you'd tblnk It
was moulting
To see the darn stuff on my suit;
I   wonder   perhaps   oould   you   buy
some new wraps—
Although  tbe  Angora's quite outet
Oh damn that Angora, oh damn—
It's   the   nightmare   of   every   good
man;
I huff and I puff to blow off the stuff,
But tho down still oomes from her
gown,
And really It's gsttlng me down I
You can rob little kittens to make
up your mittens,
But leave the old goat In Its hide!
I  don't  think  It's  quite  fair to out
off his hair.
Oh, the mesa on my ooat at tha side!
Oh   Flora,   oh   Flora,   regarding   to-
morra
Don't wear that Angora, I pray—
I ask it because it has so muoh fuss
I swear your Angora will lay!
Oh damn  that Angora,  oh damn!
'What am I—a mouse or a man?
I talk and I walk as any man ought,
I do all that any man oan—
But It must be a mouse that I am!
Perhaps you too have suffered.

An "Innocent Co-Ed" at the Campus Orill of Manitoba Is a particular

"Send over six "Innocent Coeds"

she had heard wrong. "What?" she
asked.

Those wbo have suffered under tho

Perhaps, Mary Ann and Sally are
preferable after all.

U.B.C. Student in Havana
Cuban Student Revolts Bar
Good Neighbour" Conference
«
After a summer of viewing Cuban*
student revolts, and attending a Pan-
American students' conference whloh
didn't go Into session, Mervyn Davis,
Commerce student, returned to our
peaceful campus on Monday.
As a representative of the U.B.C.
Social Problems Club, Mervyn set
out for Havana, Cuba, on July 13.
Tho oonferenoo waa to take plaoe
during the week of August 86.
"Cuban studenta have always been
the leaders of revolutions and under
the rule   of Ool. Batista,   who was
something   of a   tyrant   during the
early years of his term of oSloe, many
student  leaders  were murdered and
tortured," stated Mervyn, "but Batista
has  become  Quite   democratic   slnoe
then. The studenta, however, cannot
forget the death of their friends and
want to lead a move against the dictator.
STUDENT OPINION SPLIT
"Student opinion la split ln this desire for vengeanoe, and since they
could come to no agreement regarding their local actions, the conference
whloh was to further a 'good neighbor' policy among students, waa cancelled."
Mervyn made tho trip as purser
on a freighter to Kingston, Jamaica
•---flew to Santiago and completed
his Journey to Havana by bus. He
arrived at his destination on August 11.
He was in Cuba when war was
proclaimed but oould not find out
what was happening tn Canada. "Although I understood the odd word ln
Spanish, I didn't know enough to bo
able to read tho newspaper*," ho
commented, "so I had to go to the
Oanadlan and British consuls there
to And out the news."
AMERICAN ATTITUDE
He was ln Washington at the time
of President Roosevelt's neutrality
address. Davis expressed the opinion
that the Americana were more visibly
excited about the war, whereas our
own people are quiet, reserved and
dignified, taking the pursuance of
war In a common sense orderly
faahlon.
"In the eastern American states
the students are In complete agreement that they shouM keep but of
the war although the majority of
them are In sympathy with the
AUles.
"Quite by chance," he continued,
"X attended a meeting of young people ln New York and I was astonished
and horrified. They were anti-Semitic
and said they couldn't wait until
they saw the time when the streets
of New York should run red with tho
blood of the Jews. This same group
was definitely pro-Hitler and they
even gave the Nasi salute. In faot
their unbelievable stupidity amazed
me."
Prof. Irving On
Race Problems
"What are the results of raolal
Inter-marriage? How may tbe alien
adjust himself to a new environment? Why Is the assimilation of a
raolal minority dlffloult?" These
questions and others, pertaining to
the national frlotion In both Europe
and B.C. enlivened the first meeting
of the Cosmopolitan Club Sunday.
"In order to study these questions,
we must realise the Impact of
national institutions on the public
character," stated Professor J. A.
Irving, citing Instances from hts contacts with the Coast Indians. Mr.
Irving, guest speaker, explained tbe
maladjustment so common with a
foreign people when they try to conform  to  a  different   code   of  living.
The club's flrst meeting, attended
by representatives of eight nations,
gives every promise of another successful year. Students Interested In
a better International understanding
are Invited to attend the monthly
disousslons.

By PIERRE BERTON ■
Ever slnoe the day that he or she
embarked upon oollege life as ths
Oreenest ot the Oreen, every undergraduate has heard of and become
acquainted with a mysterious something known as College Spirit. Everybody Is exposed to It, everyone talks
about lt, no newspaper article Is
complete without some mention of
lt. And sooner or later we find Joe
College asking, In his lnnooenoe:
"Just what Is College Spirit?"
Therefore, in order to dispel this
pitiable lack of knowledge, this reporter haa been asked to attempt an
explanation.
In tbe flrst plaoe, despite popular
belief, College Spirit does not oome
ln bottles. Dispel this wicked
thought from your minds. In the
seoond plaoe there Is no oourse ln
Collage Spirit In tbe leotu.e rooms.
No professor oould teaoh It. In the
third plaoe, It oan't be bought In the
Caf. The only way to get It ia to
aoqulre It. It doesn't oreep up from
behind and nab one suddenly; It
merely grows on one. Like Santa
Claus, It oan't be seen but is Influence ts noted everywhere.
It Is tho spirit that Impels red-
sweatered Sclencemen to ohant tbelr
lusty Incantations upon the slightest excuse; tt Is the urge that
prompts usually sober scholars to
dash madly across the football field
and tip the goalposts from the
ground; It Is the force that motivates frail little co-eds to sell apples
on street corners for tbe good of the
Cause. It Is the power behind student publications, pep meetings, and
every type of voluntary oollege activity.
In short, College Spirit ls an aotlvs
enthusiasm on the part of Joe and
Josephine Oollege In all things Collegiate; a spontaneous exuberanoe
In university affairs; an ardent desire to be a living part of a great
Institution.
College Spirit was the driving
force that Impelled a band of U.B.O.
students In 1038 to maroh In protest from the old Fairview shaoka
to the spot where the Cairn now
stands. College Spirit built the Stadium, and is ereoting the Union
Building. And College Spirit motivated the great Student Campaign
In 1087.
Every student executive body,
every unlveralty society, every oollege organisation runs on College
Spirit. It's that certain Indispensable
something that makes or breaks a
oampus olub.
Vague and Intangible though tt
may be, College Spirit Is the Ufa
blood of svery grsat university. With
It, a unlveralty lives, moves, and
brsathes; without It, It oan only bo
a lifeless institute, useful merely aa
a medium for turning out students
prepared, perhaps, for technical positions , . . but not for life.
And so, having absorbed the above,
you will be able to truthfully answer
Yes or No next time some prying
Individual pointedly asks: "Have
YOU got College Spirit?"

Bi_r Things Planned
iff
his
This Year
"Bigger and better" ls the way
Todd Tremblay describes thla year's
Homecoming Sports program whloh
wlU get under way on Wednesday,
Ootober 35, and extend through to
Saturday, Ootober 38.
Feature of tho sporta program
this year, aa In former years, will
bo the staging of the Hardy Cup
games against the University of
Saskatchewan In the Stadium.
Tho Thunderbirds of B.C. will defend their Hardy Cup, whloh they
won last year with four straight victories, against the green horde from
Saskatoon on Wednesday at 3.30 and
again on Saturday on a two-game
total point series basis.
RUGGERS HELP
As an added attraction this year,
Tremblay announces that on Saturday, Immediately preceding the second Canadian football game, the
Varsity English ruggers will meet the
Meralomas squad in a fast encounter
for the leadership of the Senior
League.
The game, which will pit the two
favorites of the League, wlU start at
3.00 p.m. and with the sanction of
the Rugby Board will be shortened
to two twenty-five minute periods.
GIVE FIFTY
Plans for staging the rugger contest nearly fell through when the
Rugby Board demanded a slice of the
lucrative Homecoming financial melon, but a guarantee of fifty dollars
smoothed things out.
ARTS CLUB NEXT
FOR UBEECEES
Ubeecees, having recovered from
their trouncing last week by Meralomas, are scheduled to enoounter
Arts Club at 3.30 ln the Stadium tomorrow. From the preceding games
this season, both teams seem evenly
matched, and should provide an interesting contest.
SWITCHES
Bob Shannon, Evan Davies, and
Fred Billings have all been switched
from the A scrum to similar spots on
the B squad, while the B team lost
fullback Wilson, scrum men Pyle,
Mlnguay, and Lane, and threes
Rlohards and Prioe to the Senior
men.
The line-up for the game will be;
Cruise at fullback) Ross, Hicks, Nell
and Urquhart In the three line;
Jerry Wood at Ave-eighths; Nlshio
at sorum half; and Davies, Shannon, Tulley, Shore, Fitch, Bingham,
BlUlngs, and Stevenson In the pack.
ROWINO OLUB
At a g .neral meeting of the rowing
club last week, President Lyttleton
outlined the plan of action for this
year.
Oood turnouts are essential as the
future of the club depends on lt.
Practices are held every Saturday
afternoon at the River Clubhouse at
the foot of Blenheim street.
There are two shells available and
a still-water for the use of Inexperienced men. Watch the quad notice
board for the practice times.
NOTICE
All Senior Managers are asked to
turn In plans of any trips to be
taken by their teams to Joe Rita,
seoretary of the M.A.A., before
Ootober 33.
Students Schedule Tough
As Five Contests Loom
Thunderbirds  are*
comfortably   In  a
If the Varsity
reported resting
Sanltorlum don't take It too seriously. It will Just be the team's reaction to the heavy schedule In front
of them.
One glance at the schedule of
forthcoming games wUl bo enough to
convince anyone of the advantages to
be had in Maury Van Vliet's extensive "keep flt" campaign whloh to
date Includes only the football squad.
CONDITION
And lt will be condition, and condition only, that will see the Students
safely through the hasards of games
against the Revellers trom Victoria,
two games with the Saskatchewan
Huskies, North Shore Lions, and
Kaycees.
All of these games take place within the short spaoe of three Saturdays.
Tonight the Collegians hop aboard
the boat, for a quick visit to Viotorla,
where they will meet the Revellers in
a scheduled Big Four tilt.
PEARSON OUT
And they will be without the valuable aid ot Johnny Pearson, team
captain and the tost kicker ln the
League. Johnny finds that the pressure of business will keep him In
town over the week-end, and the
Students will be hard put to And a
man who will be able to boom them
anywhere near the distance that
Pearson has been getting this season.
Ala*., a doubtful starter Is Tommy
Williams who may not make the
trip, being confined to a corner
with a sprained ego.
The following Wednesday and Saturday, the 'Birds will entertain at
the Stadium, playing host to the
Huskies from Saskatchewan ln the
Hardy Oup play-offs.
TOUOHIE
Then comes what may well prove
to be the toughest battle of the season. On Saturday November 4, again
at the Stadium, the Collegians will
be face to face with Bishop's North
Shore Lions, a squad that they Just
managed to beat last time out.
The following Saturday, If you follow, comes the "crooshal" against the
Kaycees who are, to date, Varsity's
biggest threat to Big Four supremacy, according to League standing.
Run around the track another
eighteen times boys, and then we'll
start to condition.
GENIAL JOE
The gentleman with the pretty
tooth, shown above, la none other
than dusky Joe Rita, prollflo seoretary of the Men's Athletlo Association. Joe la doing Trojan work on
the plana to make thla Homeoomlng
the beat In twenty-odd years. And

SOCCERMEN TACKLE
SOUTH BURNABY
AT CENTRAL PARK
The senior soccer squad has been
yearning for action all week. In fact,
since they were humiliated by being
held to a scoreless draw last Saturday, their only thought has been to
swamp the South Burnaby toe artists, and they get their chance at
Central  Park  this Saturday.
Thla time  the  Hltchena-men are
determined   to  make  their   scoring
opportunities oount, and If Temolne
has  his shooting  eye  baok,   thlnga
will   be   plenty   different.   In   their
last showing, domination -of 80 per
oent. of the play just didn't mean
a thing.

B. Robinson, Young and Hunter.

GEORGE PRINGLE REGISTERS AS POST-GRAD
BUT CAN'T SAY  ABOUT  BASKETBALL
Basketball Interests on the Campus,1
already high for the coming season,
were aroused to fever pitch when it
was learned that Oeorge Pringle,
brilliant guard of former seasons, had
registered at the University for postgrad work.
However, the enthusiasm was a
little premature as "Joe" indicated
to the "Ubyssey" that his plans were
still ln the indefinite stages, and that
although he had registered he was
not sure of coming back.
Pringle, who graduated two seasons ago, has been preaching at the
mining centre of Bralorne for the
past year and came down from the
wilds this summer to undergo an
operation.
JOE UNDECIDED
The operation has left Joe a little
weak, and also a little undecided
about playing basketball at all this
season. He did, however, turn out to
a Western-Maple Leaf practico last
Tuesday, but claims there ls no truth
ln the rumour that he will definitely
play for that squad this year, although there ls always the possibility.
"It was nice to turn out with all
the  ex-Varsity   boys,"   said  Pringle
of his Tuesday workout, "but I am
really undeolded about playing at
all this year."
He claims that a year out of Senior League competition has left him
rusty, too rusty for fast brand sported In the league here.
Then, too, the doctor has not okay
ed Joe for basketball as yet, and the
ex-Varsity sparkplug may find himself on the side-lines owing to his
weakened condition, resultant from
that mid-summer operation.
However, Varsity fans may be sure
that should Pringle decide to further
his theological studies at the Union
College, he will not throw In hts lot
with the Westerns—last year's city
champs — without flrst consulting
Maury Van Vllet.
"It would be sweU to play for
Varsity again, although I would
know practically none of this year's
squad," said Joe wlstfuUy, "and I
will definitely be out to see Maury
this week."
FAMOUS FELLAH
Oeorge, who ls known to Varsity
fans everywhere as "Joe" flashed
some of the best baaketball seen
ln Canadian leagues for four years,
while attending Union College, captained the squad that won the Dominion Championship in his final
year, and won acclaim as the best
guard in Canada.
His generalship and all-around
good sportsmanship won for him the
Bobby Oaul Memorial Trophy ln 1037.
