Of Mikado
Nets Profit
Financial Surplus Reported
To Council Meeting
Monday Night
Approximately S359 profit from the
Musical Society's production of "The
Mikado" was reported to Students'
Council on Monday night by Gordon
Stead, president of the Literary and
Scientific Executive.
The Musical Society had, however,
incurred an expense of some $210 for
their noon-hour recitals ,and this reduces their credit balance for the
whole year to $149. All these figures
are subject to revision.
To give the Players' Club every
chance to do equally well with their
spring play, council agreed to allow
them to offer cash bonuses for ticket
sales. Previously bonuses have been
in the form of complimentary tickets.
Book Exchange Request
Scott McLaren of the Book Exchange suggested that books unsold
and uncalled for there after certain
periods become the property of the
Book Exchange and that profits from
their subsequent sale be divided
equally between the Alma Mater Society and the members of the Book
Exchange. The legality of this scheme
is being Investigated.
Max Stewart, president of men's
athletics, reported that the secretary
of the Western Canada IntercoUegiate Athletic Union had written to him
that, because of distances and expense, he could see little future for
B. C. in the Union for many years.
"I think then," said Stewart, "that
we ought to turn our eyes towards
the Northwestern Conference." He
agreed with Mark Collins, however,
that th.re was equally little chance
for U.B.C. to be active in that until
the A.M.S. was richer. "We can't
do much till we get a stadium," he
Cruelty To Animals
Milt. Owen, president of the Men'.
Undergraduate Society, read a letter
from the B. C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, asking him to use his Influence to pro-
vent university students taking part
in scavenging parties, "which include
the collecting of stray cats among
other things." Mr. Owen was instructed to reply that scavenging parties an not under the jurisdiction of
the university.
International Relations Grant
The International Relations Club
was given $15 for a conference at Tacoma. The stadium track is to be
put in condition. Union and Anglican Colleges will hold a meet there
on March 9. The Boat Club is to
have a regatta and tea dance on
March 10.
The Vancouver Law Students' So-(
ciety will debate here on March 6
against the Parliamentary Forum who
will take the affirmative of "Resolved that Canada should withdraw
from the League of Nations."
The mysteries of glass grinding were
unfolded to the 'Physics Club' by Pat-
ric McTaggart-Cowan at the Noon
hour meeting in Science 200 yesterday.
Glass grinding, the speaker demonstrated, has much nf labour and little
of romance in it, The glass must be
cut into a rough blank by a carborundum wheel, then it must be painstakingly ground on a spherical metal
local length desired. The preliminary
grinding is done with coarse carborundum, then carborundum of a finer
quaUty is used, and finally the grinding operation is completed with
This process must be periodically
interrupted so that the operator may
test the glass to see that the grinding
is evenly done. When the grinding
operation is completed the glass must
be carefully polished with an abrasive
called rouge. This process must be
very carefully carried out. The degree of care and perfection with
which this process is carried out
largely determines the cost of the
Election of the President of the Alma Mater Society for the session 1934-35 will take place on Tuesday,
March 13, and nominations will close next Monday,
March 5, at 5 p.m.
With the exception of academic activities this election is probably the most important occasion that the students of this University have to face during the year, for
it is the occasion on which they themselves decide what
kind of government the Alma Mater Society is to have
for the ensuing year, and what its general policies are to
be. It is therefore incumbent upon each individual member of the student body, if not from a spirit of loyalty to
his University, at least then from an interest in his own
personal welfare, to give his careful attention to this
And giving one's attention to the matter includes
not only turning out on election day and marking a ballot.
It includes the even more important duty of seeing that
the best men on the campus are nominated for the position in the first place. Previous experience on Students'
Council is not requisite for a candidate, although it is a
distinct advantage. The essential qualities are integrity, executive ability, enthusiasm and confidence as a
public speaker. Eligibility to the office is limited to students who are proceeding to their graduating year.
It is to be hoped that the members of the Alma
Mater Society will see the true importance of this matter
and make it their business to obtain for themselves the
best possible leadership for the years 1934-35.

Builds Tower
Construction To Commence
Immediately, Say Governors
Announcement is made by the
Board of Governors of the Union
Theological College that construction
will begin immediately on the central tower of the building as an addition to the present wing. The new
tower will house the college library
and executive offices.
As originally planned there is to
be another wing built eventually on
the other side of the tower to house
the Chapel. The whole building
when completed will be a distinct
asset to the campus, and conform
fully to the architectural plans of
the other permanent buildings.
Ths College has had the funds for
construction of the tower on hand
for some time, but it was felt that
the present time, with low construction costs would be the most auspicious time to build. At the present
time there is not yet enough money
to complete the stone facing of the
new tower, but this will be procurad

Works Discussed
In Letters Paper
"Victoria Mary Sackville-West has
attracted more attention and interest
in England during the last few years
than any other new novelist, largely,
it may be, because she sometimes
deals with peculiarly English subjects in a peculiarly English fashion.''
This was Margaret Powlett's introduction in a pa pur on that author
before the Letters Club, at the home
of  Professor  Larson  Tuesday  night.
Prevost New President
Other business of the meeting consist_d of the election of Gerald Prevost to the office of president, Catherine Macrae to that of secretary,
and the following to membership in
the club: Darrel Gomery, Mollie Lock,
Joy Campbell, Doreen Agnew, Margaret Ecker, Algn Morley, John Rose,
William Robertson, and James Ferris.
FeeUng For Earth
Miss Powlett stressed the importance, as background in the works _f
Victoria Sackville-Wtist, "her feelings
for earth as earth," and showed its
influence by reference to her poem,
"The Land," and her novel, "Grey

In pointing out the qualities of a
successful teacher at the vocational
guidance lecture Wednesday noon in
Arts 100, Mr. Paul N. Whitley, ex-
president of the Alma Mater Society,
stressed particularly the moral responsibility, saying, "If a teacher goes
out on a 'binge' and the news of it gets
to his classroom before he does, he
hasn't a chance of putting over his
Physical Vigour Necessary
Physical vigour end enthusiasm are
essential according to Mr. Whitley,
and .. teacher must pack a reserve In
order to be successful. Too, his attitude toward the groups of teachers
and pupils must bo correct, and he
must sustain his interest in the development of the character of the
pupil and the attitude ot the pupil.
The ability of the teacher to be useful in fraternal and extra-curricular
activities determines to a large extent his success. Another essential
is the ability of the teacher to maintain an orderly class-room and to
organize his material into learning
Teacher Qualifications
Mr. Whitley gave the various means
by which one can qualify for a teacher. There are now about 3950 teachers in B. C, 1000 of which have academic certificates. This certificate is
obtained after graduation from the
University and one year ln Education.
First class and second class certificates obtained after one year at Normal School entitle a teacher to fill
a limited number of positions but
there are no restrictions on an Academic certificate.
Advice To Teachers
In giving advice tc the rising generation of pedadogues Mr. Whitley
stated that the method of insuring
success was to garner the acquaintance of the school principals, to attend teacher's conventions and to
read educational magazines. "The
more o person is known the better
chance he has in the teaching profession," stated the speaker. He concluded by dealing with the remuneration to be exnected by teachers
which ranged two years ago from
$1500 to $3800 in Vancouver High
Schools and from $1300 to $3800 in
Vancouver Junior High Schools.
Shaw Spring Play
Full Of Surprises
Author Does Not Conform To Historical
Representations   Of   Characters
It is a comedy of surprises, this "Caesar and Cleopatra" play
by George Bernard Shaw that the Players' Club is putting on
at the University Theatre on March 14,15,16 and 17 as its 19th
annual spring play.
Caesar and Cleopatra surprise one another, and they certainly will surprise any in the audience who expect them to
pe the conventional figures of history.
<\> Shaw Scorns History
Word has been received here from
England that James Gibson, graduate
of this university, has been appointed
to the presidency of the British Universities' League of Nations Society.
During the past year or so Mr. Gibson has interested himself in international student problems, and in connection with this has travelled extensively in Europe.

Sciencemen: Watch for Students' Night of the Engineering
Society, March D.
Sneers and Jeers
By The Campus Crab
Sorority sisters establish salubrious
and superior social standards—Palpitating protet against Musicians mangling Makado.
Confirming the rumours we occasionally hear as to the Greek Letter
societies being the leaders of campus
social life, it has come to the Crustacean ears that a certain sorority
has asserted its traditional leadership
in advancing the amenities of academic culture by passing an ordinance requiring its members to keep
their Kaf table in a state of approximate cleanliness.
All honour to these fastidious pioneers who have risen in revolt against
the abominable and disgusting surroundings in which most of the undergraduates love to wallow.
At the same time, it would be well
for   these   same   undergraduates   to
recent perpetration of the Mikado, I
suppose it is left to me, as the moral
and spiritual monitor of these chaste
pages, to inform them that they have
earned neither one nor the other.
After making allowances for "first
night." and paying all due homage to
Katusha, Ko-Ko, Pish-Tush and Poo-
Bah for their redeeming performances, even after chalking up the Mikado', heroic attempt on the credit
side, the affair was far from what it
should have been.
I do not demand professional standards from such an organization, but
when they rate themselves as equal
to delivering entertainment worth
from 35 cents to one dollar a seat,
they should stand by their bargain.
Perhaps they do, but if the excuses
of inexperience, lack of talent, insufficient time, "good intentions" and
meditate a while upon the conclus- so forth, that are being advanced in
ions that may be drawn from the
circumstances that make it a matter
of favorable comment when a small
handful of the University's social
leaders consider it necessary to pass
stringent regulations in order to prevent its members joining in the scavenger's saturnalia that dally disgraces
our collegiate dining hall.
The   Musical   Society   having  wallowed in praise and profit after their
their favor on the campus, are any
criterion of the Society's own opinion, they do not.
Actually, outside of the few characters mentioned, the singing was
wretched, the acting utterly incompetent. The choruses, especially the
female section, were completely un
trained in stage business, The make
up was hopelessly amateurish. A

If war broke out tomorrow between
one of the members of the British
Commonwealth and some foreign
power, would the other members of
the Commonwealth spring to the defence of their sister-nation?
This question was raised by Mr. H.
McAllister when he read his paper
on the subject: "Prospects of a United Foreign Policy for the British
Commonwealth," before a meeting of
the Historical Society held on Monday evneing at the home of Mrs. W.
A. Cooke.
"Hasty decisions and new alignments of power are the order of the
day," declared the speaker by way of
introducing his Topic. He contrasted
the empire solidarity of 1914 with the
modern situation: "Now Ireland and
India shriek for absolute independence, while the Dominions sulkily accept from Britain the lion's share of
Imperial preferences and, in return,
begrudge England any economic concessions whatsoever."
Two Alternatives
According to Mr. McAllister, the
members of the Commonwealth have
two alternative courses of action in
the field of foreign affairs today—
either they must adopt "a unified
foreign policy with most of the decisions being made in London, or
they may minimize Imperial connections, extend the present practice of
placing individual representatives in
foreign capitals ,and strike the best
bargains they can without the stimulant of British prestige and the
mild persuasion implied in the British Navy."
The speaker dealt with various obstacles that stand in the path of a
unified foreign policy—stressing the
fact that "machinery for communication and consultation between member states,' 'is of special importance.
Australian Attitude
A comparison of the Canadian and
Australian attitudes, with regard to
the fundamental question of a united
foreign policy, reveals that Australia
"makes much more use of the British
(Continued on Page 3)
That is not Shaw's way. He scorns
history, and he makes his characters
to suk himself. He has neither satirized them nor caricatured them, but
he altered them to suit his own ends
and to give the play a delicious slant
of humor most unexpected in its nature.
The humour lies chiefly in affronts
to the ordinary conception of the dignity due to greatness. Shaw shows
no respect for Cleopatra, whatever.
He has her called a "filthy little
Egyptian rat." He has her bumped
around on the end of a rope. He has
her pitched screaming Into the sea.
Caesar Gets Reproof
Caesar receives equally cavalier
treatment. His bald head Is the subject of ribald comment. His fondness for speechifying and sermonising bring him blunt reproofs from
honest Rufio, his second in command.
He comes in, in fact, for a multitude
of reproofs, but bears up wonderfully well.
The most delicious satire of the
play is in the character of Britannia,
an ancient British slave, whom Shaw
has made to possess all the punctiliousness, morality and dignity of a
mid-Victorian father-in-law. This
gentleman, played by David Fulton, is
known-Mn the cast as "Brtttyr^but
speaks to others only after proper
Rufio a "Rough Diamond"
Rufio, Caesar's other henchman, .!s
a rough-and-readv general who has
risen from the ranks and still smells
of tho farm. He is more ready to use
his sword than be polite, but his intentions are good. 'Rough diamond"
is the name for his type.
The rest of the characters, excepting Ftatateeta, the queen's ferocious
nurse, are more or less normal people such as might be found round this
university. But if you think Shaw
can't satirize this university just come
down and see the play,

It is encouraging to hear that the Board
of Governors of Union College have'decided
to commence construction of the central tower
of the college building As the structure stands
to-day, it is somewhat unbalanced and the new
addition should be a distinct improvement.
In these present days, the courage evinced
by the College is very praiseworthy. It would
be an excellent thing if the contractors endeavored to give as much as possible of the employment that will result to university students.
It is only right that theologs should have the
ployment that will result to university students,
on the campus for whom such a summer job
would be a godsend.
A recent news item in the morning paper
was a delightful manifestation of some of the
muddled thinking that permeates the public
press. Some bright soul was addressing the
Board of Trade upon the necessity of buying
British Columbia products. With a cry of crusading zeal, he made public the fact that citizens of this province were spending 29 millions annually on products abroad, that could
conceivably be manufactured at home.
This great thinker then declared that if
pnly the public could be persuaded to buy
these articles at home we would benefit to the
tune of 29 millions and we would have no unemployment problem.
His conclusions require no comment. For
pure unadulterated false logic they are un
beatable. And yet the general public are only
too apt to lap up such palpable clap-trap, and
consider themselves patriotic citizens.
If the University does nothing else, it at
least teaches students those fundamentals of
economics which immediately disaprove such
false statements. It would be an excellent thing
if the public at large could take Ec.

There is a definite trend in the humor of
today which seems significant or something.
Tell me your fellow-countrymen's favorite
jokes and I'll tell you the general character
of the people. Only let me stop you if I've
heard them.
What we want to point out is that humour
is becoming decidedly macaber on this continent. It isn't sadaism precisely, but it is a leaning toward the grotesque.
The sacchrine little poem about "Little
Johnnie with a curse" which appeared in this
journal last week, has a large following. But
here's a much more typical little Johnnie poem
with a larger following:
Little Johnnie fell down the elevator,
Wasn't found till six weeks later,
When found his family said, "Gee whiz,
What a spoiled child Johnnie is."
A truly succulent bit of literature, and
that is the sort of thing the public is feeding
on these days!
Our own favorite joke isn't a very new
one, but it marked the beginning of the new
A lady whose husband was a midget was
suddenly widowed. All her friends thought it
would be interesting to view the corpse. So
all through the day before the funeral they
trailed up the stairs to look at him.
Late in the afternoon the doorbell rang
and the lady answered it
"May we go up to look at him ?" was the
"Yes," she said, "but do close the lid
afterward. The cat's had him downstairs three
times today."
Right in the spirit of the theme today
comes this little bit of information which we
hope some of you may use someday and tell
us all about it.
The next time you go to Canton, be sure
and visit the Drunken Wolf Inn. (Address on
request.) For there at a small nominal cost
they will serve you stewed black cat.
Our generous offer of publicity in this
section for a slight remuneration has not been
taken up yet. We did have an offer of sorts,
A gentleman said, "So you'll write about
people for a dime?" We admitted it. "For a
dollar would you leave the space blank?" he
And we ups and ats him, "Sure."
We knew darn well he didn't have a dol
lar anyway.
The question of the value of student activities as part of the university course may be a
little out of place at this time of the year, but
at the same time students should now be considering their "plan of campaign" for their next
In thinking of this it would be wise for
them to allow for at least one activity in addition to the ordinary academic course. For not
the least of the benefits of a university training
are thc numerous and interesting contacts
which it enables one to make. And the great
majority of such contacts must of necessity
be made in the course of the student's participation in sports and in the numerous other
extra-curricular activities in which he has the
opportunity of taking part. Study is of course
the main object of a university career, and
should never be subordinated to other pursuits, but at the same time it is not the only one
Another point in favor of student activities is the fact that in this age of specialization
one's years at a university are the only ones in
which one has such a wide field of opportunity
of participation in such things. Here one may
obtain valuable experience in a given line of
work without being compelled to do so much
of it that it becomes distasteful.
And apart from these reasons, outside act-
iities provide a necessary and agreeable relief
from the serious business of studying and going to lectures.

At The Play
From her first dance, a "Baile de
Presentacion" (traditional formal first
dance of a program ln Spain), to her
last, through a varying program of
brilliant and vivid effects, Carola
Goya on Wednesday night delighted
a capacity audience.
Wifn exquisite perfection, she performed several typical dances of different provinces in Spain. Her interpretations of peasant dances *wer*
particularly pleasing.
A gypsy dance, "De la Veza Gran-
adina,' called for the use of finger
cymbals, which Miss Goya handles
perfectly and the dance was beautiful
in its swift effortless grace. The surprising variety of costume was an
appeal to any audience. Each dance
called for a different costume, and
each was perfectly in accord with
the spirit and tempo of the dance.
"Vcngra, Maestro," was a clever
dance which gave full scope for the
genius of Miss Goya ln the art of expression. The dancer sat watching
other dancers, and though no one else
was on the stage, she created a perfect illusion as she sprang up, of
many girls, dancing one after another.
Her last dance, "La Aragonesa," was
a masterpiece of movement and
Miss Goya is extraordinarily beautiful and very young. Her sense of
rhythm and time is remarkable.—K.

The first Russian sound film, "Rbad
to Life", has just finished playing
here before full houses. The picture
had English titles, an introduction by
a Columbia professor emeritus, and
much modern music accompaniment.
This film cannot be judged by ordinary standards. It is basically propagandist and didactic. Th? exaltation of Soviet tenets is the undfcrly*
ing motive. But then the typical
Hollywood romance that waa on the
same program by implication exalts
our own competitive system. These
things have to be. Artistic detachment in this age is become a mytm.
The chief difference In this case Is
that "Road ta Life" wee very consciously a propagandist film. Be willing to swallow a dose of Soviet self-
adulation, contain yourself when an
object lesson is presented so that th?
most child-like Siberian peasant can
follow, and you will be rewarded
with the superlative art with whi:h
this story of the Russian wild boys'
socialization is recorded.
The photography alone would set
this picture apart. If it is possible to
make of ragamuffins, construction
gangs, broken bottles, smoke, objects
of fasjinating beauty, then the angle
of the camera and the bold lighting
and ertless acting achieve it. It is a
demonstration of that elusive beauty
of the commonplace, a triumph of
realism,—J. B. C .

In Arts '20
Tension reigned supreme on the
campus. Around the bulletin board
in the caf a seething mass of students cheered the progress of the various classes as the runners lurched
drunkenly over the course. But they
did not, could not know of the grim
battle being fought out there on the
pavement by the boys of the Muck
Oscar Scribblewell, who started for
the punsters, got off to a flying start
and ran three blocks before he found
be was going in the wrong direction.
Going into reverse, however, he
quickly passd all the other runners,
Who paid no attention to him, thinking he was going in the other direction. Chang Suey, who next took up
the cudgel, smashed his way through
all opposition and was leading the
field by a clear hundred yards when
his natural instincts got the better of
hmi. Perceiving that he could perhaps steal a lap on the boys, he cavorted back to th. starting line and
finished third, having filched three
quarters of a lap (much to his gratification).
Alexis Khotoff took over the baton
btu was khotoff balance and dropped
the stick. When he had recovered it
the rest of the runners were fading
into the distance, so Alexis did not
bother to run, but sent the baton on
by messenger-post. Rufus W. McGoofus, after signing for the stick,
galloped, off to a fine lead, but took
the wrong turn and the street car
to the end of his lap. Co-co, that
all-round miracle, snatched the hickory, white pin, hoak, hash, helm (your
guess is as good as mine) from his
colleague's fainting grasp and raced
to the end of his section. However,
the boys lost this lead as Z. Z. Zilch
covered himself with glory and his
feet with blisters in this part of the
bunion derby.
Gliding away from all opposition
with a peculiar, wraith-like motion,
Z. Z. wove his way wearily along the
road. The only trouble was that
Shrdlu Etaoin, the next in line,
thought that Zilch was part of the
warp and woof of the surrounding
scenery, and missed him completely.
But the Muckateers were not to be
outdone by such quirks of fortune.
Shrdlu, who had an exact duplicate
of the baton prepared to meet just
such an exigency, sped off with the
rest of the field, but run as he
would, he could not gain an inch.
All but dead from exhaustion, he
passed on the stick to Cyrius de
Screpansle at the Fraternity Hare
stone and sank to the ground a jittering heap. De Screpansie, who had
been put wise to the running backwards trick by Oscar Scribblewell,
lumbered off in reverse. After passing all the field, he made the mistake of turning round, however, and
the runners soon caught him. On
and on the boys plodded. Yard after

Notice To Graduating
Class Of 1934
The attention of the members of
the graduating class is called to the
following important points:
1. Last day for payment of Graduating Fees—April 26. Students whose
graduation fees are not paid can not
come up for their degrees in May.
2. Under calendar regulations all
candidates for a degree are required
to make formal application for graduation at least ONE month previous
to the Congregation at which they expect to obtain the degree . Special
forms for this purpose may be obtained from the Registrar's office.
*Most students in Fourth Year Arts
and Fifth Year Applied Science (Engineering) have already filled out
forms which were included in their
registration booklets. Other candidates should attend to this matter
without delay as Congregation is on
May 10, and the applications must be
in not later than April 10.
3. Changes of address which have
not .Ir.ady be.n reported should 1>.
mad 3 on the Registrar's cards _s such
addrcssc. are often required in connection with Graduation ceremonies.
4. A complete record of the names
and addresses of all graduates Is kept
at the University. To maintain this
"Graduation Record," the Alumni Association co-operates with the Registrar's Office by giving changes of
addresses and other information.
Without the aid of every graduate,
however, it is impossible to keep the
file accurate and up-to-date, and rach
Alumnus is requested to supply information whenever available,, particularly in regard to changes of ad-
dress. The "Record" is open at all
times to graduates of the University.

minimum of taste and intelligence
was shown in the choice and 'distribution of the cos'.umes. Fortunately,
the orchestra, though not perfect, and
the scenery, were equal to the occasion.
If respect for the reputation of the
Musical Society, which has been fairly high in the past, did not deter
these manglers of Gilbert and Sullivan from their crime, common self-
esteem should have.
If the Society was not able to do
better than this, I would not say a
word, but I could shriek with exasperation whenever I think that a
bit of extra care, just a little more
effort, a trifle more proper pride
would have changed all this, and
made both the Society* and the university proud of their production.
And it anyone who reads this is inclined to smile at the Musical Society,
they might remember that this particular case is only a visible symptom of the dry-rot that infects the
whole University.
And as a parting token of my regard for its wellfare, might I ask .'f
the Musical Society has ever considered that an occasional change
from a steady diet of Gilbert and
Sullivan might tend to enliven their
annual productions?
The common shout of all athletic
bodies in the University is "Support
our team, for the honour of the University!" This is all wrong. Why
should Student John Smith spend his
good money to support the honour of
the University? He doesn't believe
in it. Why should he hand out good
dimes to provide an audience for athletes that are supposed to be playing
for their own enjoyment and the love
of good sport?    He shouldn't.
But why should Student John Smith
be such a dumb cluck as to pay 35
cents to see a western in the local
movie house, and yet pass up an afternoon crowded with thrills, conflict
and action, which he can get for ten
cents at any Rugby game in which
the Thunderbirds put on their usual
Why should he suffer from an uncontrollable urge to lay out another
33 on the Mikado, when a fraction of
that will provide him with more comedy, more excitement, and a far better leg show at any of the girls basketball tussels?
Why should he search diligently for
expensive ways to entertain his current heartbreaker, when two-bits or
less will take her to any of the afternoon or evening performances ut
our soccer, basketball, rugby, swimming, track or football teams, not to
mention ski meets, rowing and other
minor offshoots, any or all of which
will keep her on the edge of her seat
from one to two hours? It is en indubitable fact that the female of the
species regards violent conflict on the
part of the male as the most superior type of entertainment. Not to
mention that the contagious he-man
atmosphere usually leaves her in a
semi-intoxicated state at the- end of
the game, in which she will welcome
a mug-up on hash counter Java as
being more appropriate and equally
as desirable as crumpets, marmalade
and tea, (SOc ea.) at the Rltzem Jacobean Room.
This leads us to the conclusion that
our sports organizations have been
woefully unintelligent. They have
been beseeching and hounding us to
support this, that and the other sport
for half a dozen different reasons,
none of them worth the price of the
paper they are written on.
All of this time, they have been
regularly supplying some of the best,
cheapest, most exciting and exhilira-
ting entertainment in Vancouver, and
playing to empty stands. They don't
need better teams. They don't need
more college spirit. They don't need
more high power publicity. What
they need is to stop selling us sentiment, and sell us the entertainment
tha they provid. so generously, and
keep in the dark so successfully.

Human Insignificance
"The insignificance of human turmoil In comparison with 'the planetary law'," was a third idea mentioned by the speaker as appearing in
the author's works. And developing
from this she spoke of the theme of
"tha folloy of a selfish all-absorbing
love on the part of a woman, a love
that will not recognize the superior
position of the woild's affairs," which
apears in the novels "Challenge," and
"Family History."
"Victoria Mary Sackville-West Is
fundamentally interested in people as
characters, in stories as plots, in scenery as setting, in the amusing as humor, and knows how to weave them
all into a convincing tale," was the
opinion expressed by the writer cf
the paper.

"The avowed intention of the British Commonwealth of Nations ia primarily to maintain peace . . . The
second major ideal of the Commonwealth is the perpetuation of peace,
the acceleration of world progress
and the outlawing of force as a

Mr. McAllister, who was of the opinion that "for the realization of its
ideals the Commonwealth depends
upon the League of Nations, the Kellogg Pact and the Permanent Court
of International Justice."
Empire Isolation Possible
The achievement of a united foreign policy might result in the isolation of the Commonwealth—"bow, d-

the other by a Russo-Italian-Franco-

Here I am sitting in front of theae
ivories wondering what to string the
Bull fans this time or whether I
should after all go off on fouls, when
what does Elson suggest but that we
play this coming war against the august members of our governing body
up to the skies.
Winchell's idea
looks good to me so
I pass it on to you
as follows:
It seems that these
student Old Boys
have given the pubsters the good old
runaround in the
past and have even
gone so far as to run
up staggering scores
against the earnest
Agnew journalists.'Pubsters,
I admit, have done a little back' dapping, and you can't blow a whistle on
their using their advantages for a
little panning ln the Ubyssey columns.
This year It Is our turn to wear the
cords cut, and taking any penalties
that refereeing councllllrs may exert
on our future budgets.
So getting back to Richard's suggestion 1 emote that it is only just and
right that we should play up the pubsters' return to basketball supremacy
and feature the event as a prelim to
the second tussle which our angelic
seniors inflict on the Province casaba
Maybe Socks McCrimmon can
splurge the boys on some of that
gaudy strip I see stuffed here and
there tn the clothing dept. and It
won't be long before the fans will
be yelling themselves hoarse as the
rivals end run up and down the
I add at this point that all rules be
forgotten as far as fouling goes, and
that we stick in as whistle-blower
none other than our old Friend, with,
of course, some whistle that some
triller that clicks once every ten
All that remains will be for council to don their gowns and go back
to the showers, while pubsters ride
off the floor on the shoulders of the
wild-eyed fans, having tucked away
as you can lay at any odds at least
a fifty point lead.
I am not giving you the Matthison
when I say this and you may take me
off if the matter doesn't become a
fact. Athlete's Foot Jr. may take his
Basket Bull far enuff to feed it to
his rag as 1 undoubtedly will to mine,
and the play may draw more than the
Osborne troop at that.

While most of the V. and D. squads
will be struggling for advancement
in the preliminary rounds of the
Mainland Cup competition, Varsity
Soccermen will travel to Nanaimo in
search of practice and experience.
They will leave here on the Sunday
morning boat, will engage Nanalmo
City in the afternoon, and will return In the evening.
Nanalmo Strong
Nanaimo City are at present one of
the strongest elevens in the new Intercity League, having drawn with
the undefeated St. Andrews, and
beaten nearly all the other teams.
The Students, however, have drawn
with the Saints too, though only in
an exhibition game. There should be
a good crowd on hand, then, as Nanaimo is the most soccer-conscious
city in the Province. But whatever
happens, the Blue and Gold boys
will have gained an invaluable experience.
Unfortunately not all of the Collegians will be able to fnake the trip,
as Russ Stewart and Gerry Sutherland are unavoidably obliged to remain behind. Nevertheless, Manager

The team will likely be composed

On Saturday and Sunday next, tho
U.B.C. ski team will be on Grouse
Mountain to uphold the honor of the
Alma Mater in competition with the
University of Washington and the College of Puget Sound.
For years It has been the ambition
of the Varsity Outdoors Club to Institute an Annual Intercollegiate Ski
Tournament and now the opportunity
has arrived.
The University of Washington has
recently formed a Ski Club of some
three hundred members and are taking skiing very seriously. When approached about the subject of a IntercoUegiate Meet they were very enthusiastic.
It is now up to the present members
of V.O.C. to make this first effort a
success so that a yearly ski meet will
be possible. The support of the student body is required for the success
of this endeavor.
Good Program
A very interesting program has been
drawn up and it should be of interest
to many. Those who like skiing can
ski and yell for Varsity at the same
time, others may just prefer to watch
and yell. There will be a dance on
Saturday night at the Chalet at 9 p.m.
after the meet. The Grouse Mt. Highway is in good condition for motor and
the foot trail is well blazed for hikers.

' Third Straight Win
For Seniors
When Varsity clashes with Ex-Magee
on Saturday in the finals of the Senior English Rugby knockout tournament, curtains will be drawn on the
present rugby season.
Varsity enters the finals by reason
of her victory over Occassionals, having first beaten the Rowing Club. Two
weeks ago Ex-Magee sat on the All
Blacks ln the big upset of the year.
Great Shape
The students are going in great
shape now. Last week they handed
Vancouver Rep a 17-5 drubbing after
being beaten 23-8 in their first game.
This was due partly to a weakened
Rep team, but mainly to the spectacular playing of a much improved
Varsity team.
Dalton Out?
It is rumoured that Chris Dalton
will be out of the game,' due to an
injury to his shoulder. Another rumour has it that if "The Seagull" is out
Gordon Brand will be occupying the
fullback berth.
The rest of the team are in great
shape and are all rarin' to go.
With such an important game, you
can be sure the Thunderbirds will
