'Bates College
In Unanimous
Win Over U.B.C.
Frank Murray and Ted Seamon Score Seventh Victory
Of Canadian Tour
U. Grads Doing
Well At Oxford
—_—_____ v
According to a communication received here from Jack Ruttan, graduate of Arts '33, now at St. John's
College, Oxford, the secret of getting
used to Oxford ways Is to take life
as casually as the typical Oxford undergraduate does.
Ruttan and Bill Cameron (also an
Arts '33 graduate;, have both joined
the O.U.D.S. (Oxford Undergraduate
Dramatic Society) and both secured
parts in the Christmas production,
cast as Americans.
Tom Brown, Rhodes Scholar for
1932, and Ruttan are also turning out
for Rugger. Jack landed a place on
the first ,XV, where he plays wing
forward, and Brown is well on his
way to winning a place on the first
team "pack."
Upholding the negative of the resolution "That this house
approves of the rise of Fascism," representatives of Bates College, Maine, unanimously defeated representatives of this University in an international debate Friday evening at the Hotel
Vancouver. In winning their case against Ernest Brown and
John Conway of U.B.C, Frank Murray and Theodore Seamon
scored the seventh victory of their tour of Canadian Universities which they are making under the auspices of the N.F.C.U.S.
Opening the Debate, Brown pre-«>
aented Fascism as a philosophy of
Government in which the State is
supreme and as one in which the individual surrenders certain liberties
so that the people as a whole would
benefit. He pointed out how ruth-
leas competition would be abolished
in favour of a planned co-ordination
of industry.
"Democracy was the 19th century's
contribution to government, Fascism
is the 20th century'*," itated Earnest
Murray, speaking for the negative,
hurled point after point and climaxed
his twenty minutes by asking the Affirmative, "Do you value your pri-
. vate rights, your right to vote, your
right to trial by jury, and your right
ot free speech and freedom of the
press? Does not Fascism remove
these rights?"
"Further," contended Murray, "Fascism would abolish intellectual freedom. You would be told what to
wear, how to vote and even what to
think. Einsteirt is listed as Fascist
Germany's public Enemy Number
One and is exiled from his country.
"Fascism had its origin in war and
in war it must have its outlet. Wherever it has arisen, it has cried the
doctrine  of  war,"  continued  Murray.
The negative pointed out the parallel between Jew in Germany and
Negroes in America. The rise to
power of Silver Shirts and the K.K.K.
in America would soon witness the
persecution  of  the American  Negro.
The second speaker for the affirmative maintained that where Democracy had failed, Fascism would
"Society must have an active centre about which to co-ordinate its
work and ideas if it is to be effective. Industry must be one vast enterprise in which all are workers
and shareholders in common. In
these respects Fascism is the halfway point between anarchic capitalism and communism," maintained
Jack Conway.
Conway condemned a method of
government under which a provincial debt of 119 million dollars had
to be borne by a population of 650,000;
ancl under which an adult had the
choice of voting for the "ins" or for
the  "outs."
"The modern state is like a great
orchestra. All the instruments are
there. All the means are there for
producing a great composition but a
conductor is lacking. The instruments are playing in different keys
at different tempos. The orchestra
of industry needs a conductor and
Fascism is that conductor. Fascism
with its co-operation and co-ordination will bring harmony out of the
discord of twentietli century symphony—democracy . . ."
Closing the debate for the negative,
Seamon declared that the N.R.A. did
not mean "Nuts Running America,"
or "Nazi Running America"; but
rather the replacement of the anarchism in capitalism by planned economy and fair play in industry.
"The Roosevelt policy, not the Fascist policy, is the remedy for the
flaws of capitalism," contended Theodore Seamon.

Arts '36 Disport
At Class Gallop
To the syncopated rhythm of Don
Flynn's orchestra members of the
sophomore class disported Thursday
evening. The occasion was the Arts
'36 class party and the place was the
Alma Academy, corner of Broadway
ancl Alma. Owing to a misunderstanding about th. time the orchestra
found itself playing for a group only
of two or three couples at 8 o'clock,
with a result that the program of
dances was not completed by midnight, at which time class parties
must dissolve, according to student
council regulations.
Since the financial status of the
class was not all that it might be,
the customary ham sandwich and
cup of coffee were not in evidence.

7:30 p.m.,  In the Gym.,  Hl-
Evening, the Science Ball at
Motel Vancouver.
"One who contemplates entering the
law profession should ask himself
three questions," said Mr. Sherwood
Lett in the first of a series of Vocational Guidance lectures Friday noon.
"They are: first, Do I like the work?
Second: Can I be useful to my fellow
men in that profession? Third, Can
I make a living at it?"
"In order to enter law," said Mr.
Lett, "you must have your B. A. Then
you must study under a practicing
lawyer as on 'article student' for three
years at least."
During this period, the student attends Law School four nights a weejt
and writes an examination at the end
of every year. The attendance at this
school is compulsory. There is a fee
oi! $50,00 payable upon articling. The
duties of the article student are many
and include running errands and
working on subjects which are being
studied at Law School at the time.
If and when the student passes his
final Law exam, he may pay $200
and be enrolled In the legal profession.
He becomes automatically a Notary
Public, a barrister and a solicitor, et«'
Nine Years Study
Very few, however, declared Mr.
Lett can make a living in less than
two years of practice. Thus, it takes
nine years from the time the student
enters university until he is likely to^
begin to be able to support himself.
Furthermore, although the student
may earn enough during his vacations at university to put himself
through, he will not get long enough
vacations while articling, to earn anything like the necessary amount. He
may receive from $15 to $25 per month
at first and a little more later but it
is obvious that some other financial
backing is necessary.
Mr. Lett explained the difference
between the barrister and solicitor.
He told how in lirms of lawyers, they
have specialists. He said that tho profession is not specialized in Canada
to tlie same extent as it is in the
United States. Most lawyers here are
general, practitioners although there
arc firms in Vancouver'of at most seven men in which each man will deal
with some certain aspect of the business.
Sixteen Hour Day
The qualities a man must have to
enter law are first, good health. Lawyers have to work under great strain
at times, sometimes sixteen hours a
day, every day. Secondly, one must
bo willing to work hard all the time.
Procrastination and stalling are very
easy in law. Many lawyers "go dead"
after they have established themselves
because they become lazy. Thirdly,
you must have an inquiring and encyclopaedic mind. You do not have to
and never could memorize the law,
but you must know what to look for
and where to look for it. Finally, you
must write, think and speak accurately. This is especially essential.
Although the profession is overcrowded, it is open to those who work
hard. They will be tha ones who sue-
Annual Revel
The first W.U.S. activity of the
new year Hi Jinx, annual Fancy
Dress party for women is scheduled
for tomorrow evening, and is anticipated with considerable interest, the
enthusiasm of former years being noticed again on the campus.
In this University Hi-Jinx is a traditional fete interwoven with the
Women's Undergraduate Society. According to Eleanor Walker, W.U.S.
president, it is this year "receiving
the co-operation and support it deserves."
Basketers Routed
The Varsity Basketball team was
anxious to obtain the gymnasium for
Wednesday evening, but the Women's
Undergrad Executive feel that in the
interests of the society it would be
unfair to cancel the entertainment, as
there have already been three postponements, also thc invitations hod
already been issued to the patronesses, and the orchestra and catering
had been arranged for.
The executive has planned a party
which promises to be bigger and better than ever, ond which will reinstate Hi-Jinx with all the pep and
enthusiasm by which it was heralded
in by-gone years, Tomorrow night's
Carnival will mark a return of the
W.U.S. spirit of yore.

Col. Sherwood Lett Discusses Rhodes Scholarships
Before Institute
The life, ambitions and ideals of Cecil Rhodes were discussed at the Vancouver Institute meeting, Saturday evening,
when Col. Sherwood Lett delivered an address on "Cecil
Rhodes and His Scholarships." '
Professor Logan, himself a Rhodes scholar, introduced the
speaker, the first Rhodes scholar to be appointed by our University and a distinguished member of the Vancouver bar. Col.
Lett is a member of the University Senate and Secretary of
coed because the surplus lawyers will
turn to some other business when
they  find that they  cannot succeed.
The average income of lawyers is
$3,500 per year, although some of the
salaries in Vancouver run up to $20,-
000 and more.
In summing up, Mr. Lett said that
a broad educational background is
necessary, classics, English, science,
mathematics and law. If you are considering being a lawyer, go to the
courts and see if it interests you. Then
ask a second or third year article student how he likes it. Finally ask a
middle aged lawyer his opinion of the
profession, and then make up your
own mind.
First Rhodes scholar to be appointed from the University of British Columbia, Mr. Lett graduated in 1916. He
is a former president of the University Alumni Association, and is Secretary of Convocation.

The purpose of the competition is
to secure material suitable for a
course of study in the Sunday Schools
of Canada, ancl the essays must be
written with this end in view.
There will, state3 Mrs. Weldon, director of the project, be two sections,
for Intermediate and Junior pupils
respectively. The first section will
be awarded two prizes of $35.00 and
$15.00 for a course of five lessons,
suitable for pupils ages 12 to 17. There
must also be an outline of two subsequent sections, each to be of five
lessons. The Junior section winner,
if the course of five lessons be adjudged suitable for publication, will
be awarded a prize of $50, which will
be considered as the purchase price
of the material.
The W.C.T.U. has made arrangements with Dr. Topping and Prof.
Black to allow essay credits in their
courses for work done on this project.
Tlie main object of the course is to
promote idealism in all aspects of
life, and to stabilize a philosophy of
living. The chief topic is to be "Alcohol", considered from different
angles and in comparison with other
similar influences.
The rough draft must be submitted

Colonel Lett considered most indicative of the man's determination and
idealism. After a life-time of extraordinary energy he said, "So little
done, so much to do." During his
life he was miner, farmer, promoter,
empire builder and the friend and
confidant of kings, emperors and
great statesmen.
Cecil Rhodes was the fifth son of
a poor English clergyman, handicapped by physical weakness from the
beginning. At seventeen he was
shipped off to his brother's cotton
farm in Natal Instead of going, as
was his deep ambition, to Oxford.
While In South Africa, Rhodes
went to Kimberhy and staked claims
in the diamond fields. He was very
lucky and soon he was writing home
that he made five hundred dollars
a week. Leaving his partners and
associates to work their diamond
mines he returned to England and
entered Oxford.
"This keeping of his purpose for
such a long time was characteristic
of the man's personality," Colonel
Lett said.    "Cecil Rhodes never lost
sight of his objective, and always
maintained that the end justified the
means. To understand Rhodes one
must realise this."
Upon his entry to Oxford in 1877,
his whole life was profoundly influenced, said Colonel Lett, by an address by John Ruskin, Ruskin was
an imperialist, and his ideals and
principles were absorbed by the
young Rhodes. "You young men of
England," John Ruskin said, "must
have a fixed purpose for your country and yourself." These words expressed Rhodes' personality, for he
was a thoughtful idealist who was
truly practical. He had great fixity
of purpose.
Cecil Rhodes went back to South
Africa and became very successful
in his diamond and gold mines, from
which his income grew to the great
sum of five million dollars a year;
but he never wavered from his objective, to Brltalnlze South Africa. In
his own words he planned to paint
the map of South Africa red.
In tho course of time, while Rhodes
continued the personal ownership and
control of his great diamond and gold
mines, he became the Prime Minister of Cape Colony. At the same
time, he organized and was the head
of a great chartered company similar to the Hudson's Bay Company of
By this time thc world was respecting this great man, and almost excessive praise and attention was
being showered upon him. "He
then," said Colonel Lett, "became
egotistical and arrogant." With the
Jamieson raid, Rhodes became disgraced for life. "Jamieson," Rhodes
said, "you have upset my applecart."
"In all his life, Cecil Rhodes never
spent money on himself," Colonel
Lett said. 'He was a sportsman and
a faithful friend." It was in keeping with his life and ideals that he
should have established the Rhodes
Scholarships . In concluding, Colonel
Lett said that perhaps the most lasting monument left was his policy
towards world peace. He had said,
"Educational relations between the
three great powers, Britain, United
States and Germany, would render
war impossible."

Churlish behaviour on the campus might
possibly be condoned on the grounds that it is
an outlet for callow exuberance, but when
some of our hearty young intellectuals transfer their activities down town and inflict themselves upon the innocent public it calls for
It is our misfortune that no matter how
many well-behaved students there are on the
campus, there is always a very small minority
who delight in displaying their lack of breeding. Only a mere half dozen of such hoodlums
are needed to create the impression that the
university is the resort of incipient gangsters.
Some of these would-be men-about-town
have developed the pleasing habit of entering
restaurants or lunch counters where they immediately proceed to display some of the more
egregrious tactics which have proved so successful in Arts-Science brawls. Unfortunately
the sense of humor of other patrons is sometimes underdeveloped and they fail to see the
whimsicality involved in sprinkling catsup on
the dance floor or in a demonstration of some
of the more destructive rugby tackles.
If students must run amok in public in
order to display an exhibitionist complex, we
would suggest that they hire a hall and charge
admission. At least the public will know what
to expect.
To-night representatives of the Parliamentary Forum are meeting a team from the University of Manitoba in one of the debates sponsored by the Canadian Radio Commission. The
idea is a splendid one, but unfortunately any
expression of intelligent or enlightened opinion is forbidden by the moguls that guide the
destinies of our air waves.
As it looks at present, Canada is being subjected to a censorship of the press, every bit
as dangerous to the national life as is the control exercised in many European countries.
The pious and timid arbiters of the air have
expressed holy consternation at the subjects
chosen by the university teams for discussion.
Last term arrangements were made to
debate on the sujbect, 'Resolved that plans similar to N.R.A. should be instituted in Canada.'
After sundry procrastinations the debate was
called off because of possible political implications.
A short time ago the suggestion was made
that a debate be held on the question of government control of industry. This, too, was
strong meat for the gentle-hearted dictators of
the air, and a more innocuous question was
This evening the U.B.C. team must meet

high school debates for ninety years will doubtless be dragged out for our edification.

By The Campus Crab
The sages who direct the fate of our University are about to sit in judgment on the
destination of the $50,000 offered us by the
Carnegie Foundation. If it is possible to divert
all, or at least some, of this amount to the
library, it should be done.
The library has become sadly out of date.
The few books which are added to it from
time to time are, ag far as I have been able to
judge, well and wisely chosen, but they have,
of necessity, been pitifully few. It is beyond
dispute that we have by no means a comprehensive or even representative selection of
even representative selection of modern publications. Any student who has endeavored to
obtain the latest books covering his chosen
subject will bear witness to this.
The main objection to allotting the grant
to the library appears to be the request that
it be devoted to some new project, and one
that can be completed within the limits of expense covered by the donation.
On the other hand, the meager information
that has reached us of the other projects fails
to reveal one that has not the drawback of
being solely for the benefit of a small section
of the student body. It is even whispered that
there is considerable rivalry between departments to obtain the grant. If this is so, it is
understandable, and even natural, but it is not
the spirit in which the matter should be approached.
The library is the only place where this
limited sum could be spent to the benefit of
ALL the student body. It is the place where
it is most needed by the university as a whole.
It is the place where it should go if at all
possible. Let us hope that the authorities do
their best to see that it goes there.
And if we need to manufacture a project
that is novel and can also be accomplished
entirely with the $50,000, how about "Resolved,
to use the grant for the purpose of providing
the library with a complete selection of the
up-to-date works required by the work of the
The only appropriate place for this portion
of my column is under "Apes and Ivory."
Sneers and Jeers" based on logical premises
can have no possible connection with the
purely animal reactions that must be responsible for the inane antics of those exuberant
gentlemen that indulge in irresponsible and
ineffectual riots on the campus. Contrary to
my patriotic impulses (being an Arts man), 1
must confess that the mental measles appear
to affect both faculties equally.
The origins of this puerile affliction are
obscure. At first I was inclined to attribute
.t to common infantile imbecility, but it is hard
co imagine that some 400 or 500 positive morons
could be included in a student body withou,
a rigorous selection, carried out with exactly
that purpose in view. We are assured that this,
.s not the case, but it appears to be such a
logical suggestion that I would advise overhauling the matriculation examination system,
keeping this explanation in view.
Another possibility that should not be
overlooked, is the chance that science men
are the possessors of a complex centering on
trousers through being kept in diapers until
an advanced age. If,this should be the case,
it will tend to direct the attention of parents
to the danger of judging a child's age by its
mentality. The Arts men may be either co-
sufferers,or, as I prefer to believe, have been
exposed to infection from the "scientific" nucleus.
My chief purpose in delving into this unsavory mystery, is not to discover what these
poor deluded children carry above their necks
instead of the normal human complement of
brains, but to register a; strong protest against
MY caution money being used to defray the
expenses of running an asylum for these unfortunates. If it must be, I would suggest that the
female contingents that spend their spare time
regarding the fracases from second story windows be asked to put in their share, as they
seem to look upon it as a show, and should be
prepared to pay for their amusement, instead
of leaving it to their betters.

IT DOES TASTE GOOD IN A PIPE' Tuesday, February 6, 1934
Page Three
More than two thousand years ago
there lived a man In Israel. He was
old and he was wise. He had seen
many things and done many things.
But he had no satisfaction from them.
So he brooded on the life of man and
wrote what he saw therein. His
words were like sharp swords: men
read them and wore afraid. "He cuts
too deep," said the Elders. "Let us
blunt his sword or he will hew down
the temple." They blunted his sword
by putting soft putty round the edge.
Then said the Elders: "This sword,Is
now our sword; we will hang it up
before Ood and men shall worship
Thus we have the book called Ec-
clesiastea, ao beautiful, so haunting,
yet withal so tad and ao terrible, that
it Inspires an allegory to describe It.
Who wat he that forged the sword?
We do not know; antiquity haa swallowed him up. He was rich and
mighty in the land, he had observed
widely and pondered darkly, he called
himself Solomon but waa not Solomon—this much we reasonably surmise. But we connot tell how he
looked. Was he tall, thin and tired,
or squat, sturdy ond strong? He had
a white beard, I am sure, and grey
eyes that twinkled yet — but am I
sure? I am not. I do not even know
his name. Koheleth, the book calls
him, but that is not a name. It is
a title, "leader of an assembly," or,
as the English render it, "the
But Koheleth does not write like
a preacher; he writes like a diarist
jotting down thoughts from day to
day. He pours out his mind in
mournful observations. He gives vent
to the bitterness that fills him. Here
he says, It is good; and again, It is
bad' logic is not in him. He lightens
his words with poetry, darkens them
with sarcasm, sharpens them with
epigram. None other of his countrymen has written with tba moan-ful
force of Koheleth.
So his sword v/as sharp and the
Elders feared it. It pierced to the
heart of things. It glittered with a
mockvry of faith. "All is vanity," it
wailed. "The world is chaos; man
is dust; God does not care." These
were evil words. They tempted like
a poisoned pill coated with th. tasty
fruit of truth. They fascinated like
the hooded snake. They drained the
blood of faith like the vampire of the
Amazon. So tire Elders took these
words and added new words: "God
does care," they wrote. They said
then, These words are now good
words; and they canonized them ancl
dedicated them to God, that the sharp
sword might do good.
In the temple where the Elders
hung it, smudge pots of incense obscured the sword, but lo! when I
looked, the pristine ores came forth
and spoke of the things that are. The
core of the blade is the unchangeable
order of the world, rolling to an end
that no one knows. The tempering
of the blade is the questing for a
purpose that does not exist. The
pointing of the blade is the fruitless
struggle for pleasure that is vain, for
riches that are empty, for wisdom
that is forgotten, and for goodness
that is not to be found. The polishing of the blade is the pursuit of
I moral government In a chaotic world.
I The hilt Is the beastliness of man. The
crosspiece is the dreary nothingness
of death.   The scabbard Is an unloved
What is the sword as a whole?
What flashes up when the smudges
smoulder out? "Take thy pleasure
while thou canst, for all is vanity!"
.Jhat is the sword of Koheleth. That
U the song it sings.
This song of the sword is not a new
song. It tyai cut on stone in ancient
Babylon and Hammurabi the lawgiver, read it thus:
"Why, O Ollgamesh, dost thou wander about?
The life that thou seekest, thou wilt
not find.
When the Gods created man,
Life they kept in their hands.
Thou, 0 Gilgamesh, fill thy belly,
Day and night be joyful!
Daily be gladl
Day and night make merry!
Let thy garments be white,
Anoint thy head, and purify thyself!
With the children at thy side,
Enjoy the wife uf thy bosom!"
The poet of Naishapur heard the
song in the desert. He looked into
the star-flecked sky; he gazed upon
the purple sands; he put solitude Into verse:
"Ah, make the most of what we yet
may spend,
Before we too into the Dust descend;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer,
and—sans end!"
Aristippus and Epicurus heard the
song in their pleasant grove. They
set it to the tune of twittering birds
and growing things: "Be happy, be
happy, be happy!"
The winds of the Black Forest
wailed the song to Schopenhauer; the
pines moaned his woeful dirge: "Thy
reach exceeds thy grasp; thy want is
greater than thy strength; thou shalt
not ba satisfied."
So the sword of Koheleth sings
songs as many as the thoughts of Koheleth who made it. And Koheleth
did not say, I will melt down my
thought into one metal and make my
sword of that nwtul. so that men shall
uither look with delight upon it or
turn their heads away. Nay, I will
make a sword of many metals, quoth
Koheleth, ancl he who loves the silver
will gaze upon tho silver ,and he who
covets gold will gaze upon the gold;
he of leaden thoughts will look upon
the lead, and he of iron spirit will
think upon the iron.
Thus said Koheleth. Thus did Koheleth.
Behold his sword!
A crescent of ducks cast loose of
Sails westward
Drawing an airy line
"Into the soft-falling sun.
Out oi the closing lid of day
A ferry boat thrusts Heavily
With empty haste,
Smudging its wake,
Into the vague relief of shrouded city.
—Bob Hewetson
(From the French of Alfred de Vlgny)
I love the sound of the horn calling through woodland gray,
Whether it sings the tears of the frightened doe at bay,
Or the hunter's adieu the forest; echo receives,
And the chill northwlnd carries, breathing among the leaves.
Kow often, in the shadows that night wears,
That sound has reached me.and has moved to tears,
For I seemed to hear the sad, prophetic call
That heralded the warrior hero's fall.
Majestic mountains, where the rapids roar.
Frazona, Marbore, graveyard of the Moor,
Above  the  river sources cold winds freeze;
Below, clear run the streams ot the Pyrenees.
Throne of two seasons, frozen and flower-strewn hills,
Forehead of ice, and 'oot of lawns and rills,
There we must sit and listen   .   .   .   there at times are borne
The sad and tender notes of some far distant horn.
Often a traveller, when there is no sound,
With that clear voice of brass makes all the night resound
And with these eadenced notes there mingle sweet
Murmuring bells, and the young lamb's plaintive bleat.
Careless of hiding at the ominous sound
A doe stands frozen on the rocky mound;
And the cascade unites, in splendid fall
Eternally its plaint to dim Romance's call.
Souls of the Chevaliers, return you thus forlorn?
Is it you who speak again with the voice of the horn?
In Roncevaux's dark valley, tomb of the bold
Roland's great spirit is not yet consoled!
—Theodore Plummer.
Jewel Thoughts
Crimson fires at a velvet throat,
Crystals clear on a fragile hand
Eternal {fleam in the emerald dusks,
Her eyes gaze dumbly into sand.
Necklaces of gold and blue,
Blue that burns yet never dies,
Toys of a forgotten queen,
Clutched by the reeds her pale head lies.
Lady, gems in lovely hair,
Sparkling at a creamy wrist
Yet remain when shining strands
In the tide's grip rusty twist.
The Rigger
"When 1 saw that the top was goin'
to split, I grabbed for my axe-line.
Kicked out my spurs an' slashed the
belt., I figured I'd sooner break my
neck on the grade than have my guts
squeezed out up the tree. But there
was a pile ot brush at the foot of
the tree ... an' I didn't break my
neck."     '
Eric glanced at his twisted leg with
cynical disgust. He had the young-
old look common to loggers of the
speed-cra.y Vancouver Island camps,
a look that was already beginning to
mark the mouth and the grey eyes
of Young Blondy I'cderson, who was
nineteen, and a high-rigger.
"I came down from Topaze Inlet
feet first," Eric continued, "an* when
they'd patched in. together I signed
on here as powder monkey. Now
the Old Man tells me I'm too slow
for a dangerous job like that. He's
goin' to put me en the section before
long. Me, that rigged at Myrtle Point
in '11, when the highlead first come
His words were short-bitten and
venemous, loaded with jealous pride.
"An' I was a good rigger. I've stood
on my head on a spar near two hundred foot high, with a wind blowind
Somethin' I haven't seen you do yet,
"We aren't encouraged to try those
stunts," said Blondy. He was more
than a little bor.rl, for he had heard
the story times without number.
"You aren't th-. loggers we were,"
snapped Eric. "You're afraid of the
pushes. Me, I laid the L.L.C. manager cold once. When he got up he
says to me, 'don't go away sore, fella,'
an' I kept my job, It was somethin'
to be a rigger in those day." He
considered for a moment, misery
stamped deep on his face. "Well,
pretty soon I'm _oin' to put a case
of dynamite und-.-r my bunk with a
long fuse, get good an' rum-dumb,
an' touch 'er off. I got no intention
of pushin'  a shovel on the grade."
His voice changed, lost Its sting.
"Hell now, dude, I'm sorry. It's just
this leg of mine talkin'. You're a
highball climber, one of the best on
the Coast, they say."
"Forget it, Mister," said Young
Blondy. "You was a better high-
rigg.r than I'll over be."
Outside, he expanded his chest to
the warm evening breeze. He never
liked to stay long with the powder-
monkey, for tho knowledge that he
might go the same way himself was
forced upon him too starkly. When
one has lived as close to the gods as
a rigger, the thought of the section
is bitter indeed; and if Eric wished
to blow himself through the roof of
his shack, he at least would place no
obstacles in his way.
Returning from Campbell River the
following  Sunday,  Eric   brought   a
slxteen-ounce bottle of overproof
Demerara with him. 'For Gus Ped-
owsky," he explained. "He couldn't
get down himself this week."
Gus, questioned an hour or two
later, declared fervently and with
sadness that he didn't know anything
about any rum. So Blondy headed
for the shack a quarter mile out of
camp. He shouldered through the
open doorway, hoping that if Eric
had made good hu threat the explosion would not occur at this particular
Eric was sprawled on his bunk,
scarred face crimson, breath coming
harshly. On the table was the bottle,
and close to his hand on th. bed
was the fuse, its split end barely
scorched and quite dead.
A man with sixteen ounces of rum
under his belt would be none too
steady in the hands. Blondy reflected.
He examined the fuse carefully, cigarette glowing in the dusk of the
cabin, his sharp Nordic features softened  by  an odd smile.
There was an inch of Demerara
left in the bottle. "Pleasant pastures,
Rigger!" said young Blondy and,
tossing off his chink, loped into the
In the shack, Trie slept on. A
black and acrid line spiralled down

beneath him.

Beauty was dangerous; she scourged
Those things that made life gracious
on the plain.
Over all weaknesses she held grim
Moulding her tight-lipped sons by
war and pain.
Beauty, rejected, came in other guise,
Bleak as hewn granite, simple, high
and strong
Flashing strange radiance into all
men's eyes,
A glory of steel, and over the swords
a song.
And when the very gods of Greece
had fled

Who, in the mouth of one deep seaward glen,
Died man b_ man, ringed round with
Persian dead:

On Friday night it did not rain.
The god of coolness walked the breeze
And spoke of beauty, joy and pain
Among the  dark and rustling  trees.
On Friday night the sunset fires
Burned   with   a   brighter   brightness.
Beneath Vancouver's mountain spires
The sea was a crimson likeness.
On Friday night the clouds on high,
Like gallant galleons of Spain,
Sailed in state uvon the sky,
Monurclis of the heavenly main.
And when at length a moon there
The glory passed beyond delight.
And all this beauty was because
It did not rain on Friday night.

It was a warm August evening. The
sun had disappeared behind the
neighboring hills half an hour ago.
The noisy clamouring of the birds
was gradually subsiding and its place
was being taken by the war cries of
the local regiment of alley cats. Dorothy stood in her tiny kitchen finishing the weekly ironing.
She gave vent to a tired sigh. Why
did husbands have lodge meetings
anyway? Here she was left at home
again to spend a weary evening, no
hope of seeing John until well on
towards midnight. You couldn't Imagine Harry Johnson who lived a few
doors away going off and leaving his
wife by herself once a week. In spite
of his being such a likeable sort of
person and having such a host of
friends he had enough consideration
not to go gallivanting about so often.
Why, only that day he had given
Dorothy those two concert tickets because his wife had a slight cold and
couldn't go. Could you picture John
giving up tickets to anything because
she was under the weather?
John was all right and made a
passable husband, but his thoughtlessness was appalling at times. It
was a marvel that Violet Johnson had
managed to entrap Harry.
Damn that ironing plug! She'd be
straining her eyes ironing any more.
This was another indication of John's

carelessness. She had asked him a
half dozen times to repair it so that
she wouldn't have to use the light-
plug, and he had forgotten each time.
Here it was almost dark, and she
couldn't turn on the light. Well, she
would just sit down and rest until
the iron cooled, and then perhaps
she would phone the Johnsons and
have them come in for a chat.
She had not been seated five minutes when she was startled by a
light step step on the porch. After
a few seconds of suspense she was
horrified to see an arm, a man's arm,
thrust gingerly through the half-open
window. The arm was bent, and the
hand grasped uncertainly towards the
door handle. Dorothy recovered
from her momentary paralysis,
reached quickly for the iron and
pressed it resolutely on the bare wrist.
A short, dog-like yelp and the hand
disappeared. Thjre was a crash as
the erstwhile thief half fell from the
verandah and then . . . silence.
The deed accomplished, Dorothy fell
back, a victim of helpless hysteria.
Oh, why had John gone out? She
fled to the front of the house and
turned on the lights. She must do
something. The police? That wai
useless, for the man was gone. She
would call up the Johnsons and have
them come over; Violet wouldn't
mind helping her even if she did
have a slight cold, and Harry would
be only too glad to do her a service.
She went to the telephone and gave
the number. "Violet! You must come
over right away. Something terrible
has just happened. I simply can't
stay here alone another minute."
There was a pause, then:
"Can't you get someone else, Dorothy? I must stay here and help
Harry. He has been over repairing
a neighbor's furnace, and he burned
his arm badly!"

A cold rain fell. And there on slow-foot he fared

so stark it stood as a tall spear shaft,

Varsity Whitewashed By Vancouver
Varsity Tie Adanacs
In League Race By
Defeating B. & W.
Varsity  To   Play Adanacs For Bye Into
Playoff Berth
Varsity Team Weakened By Injuries And
Varsity's victory on Saturday against the B. & W. Oil 32-
16 gave them a first place tie with Adanacs in the G.V.A.A.
basketball league. Varsity will play one more game before the
playoffs begin against the Adanacs to determine which team
will get a bye into the playoffs.
Saturday's game was by means a bang-up exhibition of
the way basketball should be played. The students didn't show
their former class, seeming to miss the presence of Nicholson
and McCrimmon.
Vanity Starts Strongly <
The first half went quite well, with
a forward line of Bardsley, Wiiloughby and McDonald working the
ball around in fine style, and performing some unpremeditated though very
effective plays. The guards did their
work well and managed to hold the
Oilers to seven points, although B.
It W. boys peppered the basket from
every angle.
B. & W. Strong In Second! Half
The second half was a different
story. B. & W. started the period
fighting hard to keep in the game,
and ran in C points on long shots before the play was well under way.
This seemed to demoralize the Thunderbirds who failed to get down to
work for the whole period. To add to
the misfortunes that have been piling
on the team, Dick Wright, who was
making a line showing at guard,
wrenched his knee. Doc Montgomery's crew in the meantime were
fighting hard for a victory that would
have ensured them a playoff berth,
and though they came within 9 points
ol! it, they were unable to make the
grade before the game ended 36-26.
Prlngle Back
Pringle returned to the ranks on
Saturday and his reappearance was
hailed with audible sighs of relief.
Dick Wright's knee may prove serious
enough to keep him out of the next
game and with Nicholson still weak
from an attack of flu, prospects do
not look any too bright.
Adanacs Look Good
The rest of the team are in sound
health and can be counted on to fight
till the last minute, but there is not
much leeway for substitution. The
boys will need all the fight they have
when they meet the Adanacs, judging
by the way that team performed in
the last game.

Basketball Prexy
Constant absence of a representative from the Basketball Club at the
meetings of the Men's Athletic Executive has aroused the ire of the
latter body.
At a meeting held yesterday noon,
it was decided to write a letter to the
club, requesting either the presence
of a member of their executive at
the meetings, or the appointment qt a
new executive who would make an
effort to attend.
Criticism of basketball inactivity
was also expressed at a recent meeting of the Student's Council.
Road Race Postponed
Due to circumstances over which
members of the executive of the Track
Club have absolutely no control, such
as bad weather and fluctuations In the
value of the Swedish yen, the classic Arts '30 cross country will not be
run this coming Wednesday but possibly next Wednesday. We do not
advise you to hold your breath till

U.B.C Grass Hockey
Men Defeat Varsity
The two university teams met on
Saturday and Varsity defeated U.B.C.
by the score of 9 to 4.
U.B.C. scored first through a brilliant effort by Gray, then Varsity
scored six goals before Bremner
finally scored again ibr U. B, C.
Varsity opened the secefnd half by
scoring   a   fast   goal,   then   Bremner
scored  twice    more  for    U.B.C.  followed by two more goals for Varsity.
Varsity Played Well
The whole Varsity team played well,
while U.B.C. was best served by Bremner and Disney.

When the Chines. Students' fixture
was called off the Varsity management tried to arrange a practice game
for Saturday with St. Saviours of the
Intercity League. This fell through
too. Then Jock Irvine, guardian of
the Saints, suggested Sunday as an
alternative day. Need we add that
the Seniors remained idle over the
Few of the team which travelled
to Chilliwack last week knew that
the opposing All-Star eleven was
managed by Ernie Roberts, former
Soccer Club president and defence
star of four years ago. Ernie has
done for soccer what Arnold Henderson has done for basketball on
our fair campus. Now Ernie is teaching in Chilliwack and his High School
team is one of the best in the local
league. There is a possibility that
these youngsters will come to play
our Juniors here.
Asked to describe briefly the difference between playing in Junior
Alliance and in the First Division,
Bishop Thurber, who has played both
this season, parried with this question: "Do you know the difference
between attending a funeral and a
wedding?" . . . Apparently "life" has
found a meaning for Bish.
Without seeming to contradict the
above, or anything like that, we compliment the Juniors on their useful
2-2 draw with the Dutchies of Bader,
although we understand that our Soccerites had enough chances to win a
couple of such games. The mystery
of switching Alan Lloyd and Ted
Denne still remains unsolved for us,

captain will rcp.'ewnt s.ccer on the

Rep. Fifteen Come
From Behind In 2nd
Half To Win 24 to 8
Varsity Leads 8-5 in First Half But They Wilt
To See Vancouver Run up 16 Point Lead
And Take First Place in Cup Competition
Game Marred by the  Number  of Injuries.
Brand Dislocates Shoulder
After leading 8-5 in the first half, the University McKechnie Cup squad saw their chances of winning the coveted
trophy dwindle when the Vancouver Rep. fifteen steamrolled
their way to a 24-8 victory. Saturday's' game gave the Rep.
squad a 3 point hold on the championship with Varsity and
Victoria tied for second place with a point each.
The game was a thrilling spectacle despite the somewhat
one sided score. Varsity looked like the winners up to the cross
over. Threes were working well getting off for long runs while
the scrum played its usual bang up game. After the first ten'
minutes of the second half the Rep. fifteen seemed to run
through the Varsity line at will scoring again and again when
good tackling on the part of the students would have prevented
Varsity Leads 8*5 At End of First Half
Junior Soccer Team
Tie Braders Dutchies
After having practically all the play
in thi second half, the best the Junior Soccerites could do was to secure
a 2-2 draw with Bader's Dutchies at
Prince Edward Park.
The Dutchies had most of the play
in the first stanza and scored two fine
goals through their classy centre,
After th'3 interval, however, the
Blue and Gold squad began to function. The backs and the intermediate
line played finely, and the forwards,
too, did everything but score. Yet
the inevitable arrived: a ball glanced
off one of the Bader's defenders and
I went into the net. Then Bardwell
equalized ancl ended the scoring.
For Varsity Darwin played a good
game in goal and was ably supported
by Moodie and Lloyd. Atwater was
thc pick of the halves. Irish was the
most dangerous forward. The team:
Darwin, Lloyd, Chester, Atwater,
Thurber, Irish, Godard, Orme, Denne,
and Bardwell.
Varsity Skiers Do Well
Chuck Hills of the Skyline Ski Club
won the slalom race, held Sunday on
Grouse Mountain. His time was 35 1-5
sees. Louis Savard of the Grouse
Mountain Ski Club took second place
and Jeckle Fairley of the Varsity Ski
Club placed third. Stan bruce came

Doug. Manley, of the Varsity Ski
Club, made a pretty 122-foot leap.
Hans Gunnars of Grouse Mountain
Ski. Club sailed 150 feet, to break the
hill record, but fell. The hill record
now stands at 147 feet.
Sc. '35 Win League

down to within attacking distance, A
long run by Roxburgh and Van Home
relieved the pressure on the Rep. line
and shortly afterwards Kinnimont
broke through for the first touch. Nor-
mington. North Shore All Blacks star,
converted to give the All Stars a 5-
point lead. *
Dalton started the scoring for the
students when he got away for a long
run down the ,ield. He was stopped
by a Rep. player near the line but
from the resulting melee Pyle wriggled his way through the defending
.'oiiad, passed to Maguire who ran a
tew yards and gave the ball to Harrison who fell over the line for the
opening score for the students. "Seagull" Dalton failed to convert.
A little later Pot Mitchell, veteran
scrum man on the Blue and Gold fifteen, dribbled the ball through the
opposing pack and over the line for
the second touchdown for the students. Dalton converted to place the
students in the lead 8-5.
Towards the end of the first half,
Johnston, Rep. .ullback, was forced
to leave the field when he wrenched a
ligament in his lef. Johnston, who
on Saturday played his first McKechnie Cup game, deserves great credit
for the excellent showing he made.
Van Home, another Rep. player, also
left the field because of injuries.
The Vancouver squad made a determined rush on the Varsity line which
was stopped by Gordy Brand. In stopping this play Gordy unfortunately
dislocated his shoulder, putting him
out for the rest of the game.   Senkler
replaced him in the fullback berth.
Rep. Team Run Amuck After Cross Over

opposing backs run through the back-
Held for long gains. In this period
the Rep. squad scored live touches,
three of which were unconverted. This
avalanche was due mainly to the excellent work of Roxburgh, Rose and
Kinnomont in the backfield and Mitchell and Dyer in the scrum.
Varsity started the half by a dribbling attack which would have ended
in a score if Referee Underhill had
not called the play due to some infraction of the rules. After that came
the whitewashing. Rose, Rep. three,
secured the ball near his own line and
broke away for a long run; nearing
the student line he passed to Roxburgh, who went across standing up.
The try was converted,
After the kick off Kinnomont did a
beautiful solo run through the Varsity
team to give the Vancouver squad a
greater lead. This try went unconverted. Varsity came back strong and
carried the ball deep into their opponents' territory; Leggatt took the ball
at his i'eet for a long run but the
ball went out near the Vancouver
From then on the Vancouver scrum

the ball over for three more tries, two
of which were converted. At one time
