Whole Time Awards
Open to U.B.C. Grads
The Registrar's office has received
a' list of whole time awards other
than professorships, that are open to
gradautcs of this university at public
and private institutions in Great Britain and Ireland. Since it is impossible
to publish in the Ubyssey all the
necessary information about these
awards, students desiring to continue
post-graduate research work are advised to get in touch with the Registrar as soon as possible.
Council was very disturbed at the
meeting last night over the question of

Discusses Beauty of Canadian
Mountain Scenery; Describes
Ascent of Mount Logan
"The mountain worth climbing is
the one that presents the greatest difficulties. And there's always a way—
until courage falls."
In these words, Col. W. W. Foster
expressed the spirit of the Alpine
Club of Canada to an audience at the
second Vancouver Institute meeting
on Saturday night.
"The Alpine Club has something
further in view than the object of
providing its members with mental
and physical recreation," said Col.
Foster as he outlined the activities of
the club. "All members go in the
same spirit of adventure, discovering
and exploration that has created the
great Empire of which Canada is part.
When we lose that spirit of adventure
then we shall be no longer worthy
of the spirit of the pioneers, and certainly not of the marvellous beauty
of our own land."
The speaker also emphasized the
value of preserving the great assets
in Canada's unparalled native scenery.
Col. Foster then described in an extremely interesting lecture some of
his own mountain climbing experiences, illustrating them with beautifully
colored slides.
"Mountain climbing is really simple
—all you have to do is to find room
for your feet and keep your balance,"
he remarked humorously as he
showed his audience a picture of a
breath-taking climb up a sheer cliff
thousands of feet above beautiful
Lake O'Hara.
Probably the most interesting part
of thc program, however, was the
views taken of the ascent of the
hitherto unconquered Mt. Logan in
the Yukon. Aided by several societies, as well as by the Canadian government, in 1926 an expedition back-
packed supplies more than a hundred miles through unbroken land to
the foot of the mountain.
Opperclasses Can Buy
Arts-Aggie Tickets
On Wed., Nov. 6th
"After all," stated Treasurer Ewart
Hetherington of the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society, "Freshmen are
cfjy freshmen, and though we would
greatly regret it if any who wished
tl attend the Arts-Aggie Ball were
not able to secure admission, it is
qnly fair that the upper years should
have first chance."
Such was his ultimatum It* an-
g support that the encourag-
support thus far evidenced for the
, has resulted in the Aits-Aggie
osmbined executive deciding to limit
attendance to 300 couples, which they
have set as a maximum for the Com-
niedore Ballroom to accomodate with
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday,
Nov. I, he revealed, and on the first
day of soli' no Freshmen will be allowed to purchase. On Thursday,
after the upper years have bad their
opportunity, the sale will be open to
all. and will continue until the tickets are disposed of.
"Thla is no Idle precaution," he
stated, "as last 'year, with no preparation, and under the competition
of three University functions either
immediately preceding or immediately after the Ball, a last minute rush
resulted in the disposal of more than
170 tickets, and the overcrowding of
the Spanish Grill."
"This year we are prepared, and no
such unfortunate incident will occur
again, in spite of our more elaborate
show 'tnd the Increased popularity of
Ball as a result of last year'.? success."
Research on the part of the Ubyssey staff reveals that this course is
no innovation.
In formei years, B.D. (before the
depression) it was the custom to prohibit !he Frosh from purchasing
tickets to any major function until
the upperclassmen had had first
chance. In fact, a tradition of the
old days recalls many occasions on
which a complete sell-out for both
Arts and Science Balls took less than
two hour3 to achieve, and the Frosh
were ln the cold altogether.
"Sevo.'al men have asked me," volunteered A.M.U.S. President Morley,
in addition to Mr. Hetherington's
statement, "if the Arts-Aggie is a
strictly formal function."
"In ordre to prevent any misapprehension, I suppose it wou'd be as
well to make clear that it has, from
time immemorial, been called a
"Formal" function; but I doubt if it
ever really has been one."
"At any rate, I can never remember a time when everybody turned
up in tuxes, though the majority do
"After the reception my last fashion
column received from at least one
Council member I am leary of making remarks on the subject of clothes,
but I assure you that a dark suit is
quite as acceptable at the Arts-Aggie
as a tux would be."
This climb, ranking in difficulty
with the ascent of Everest, resulted
in much valuable information about
the territory surrounding Mt. Logan,
which is itself the greatest single
mass (.f mountain yet reported.
Totem Editor Asks for Fifteen
Seniors; Appointments on Friday
Artona Studios will begin their
work of photographing all graduates
next Monday. In order to speed up
the photography work it is necessary
that senior time tables be handed in
as soon as possible. Fifteen must be
handed in by next Saturday.
This year graduation pictures may
be used as Christmas presents since
all photography is to be finished by
the end of November, according to
Margaret Ecker, editor of the Annual.
The charge will as usual be $1.00
and for this the graduate will receive
a mounted 3 by 5 picture. Other
pictures may be ordered from Artona.
Artona promises to excel itself this
year, in fact the photographer went
so far as to promise to make all the
seniors beautiful. He can only do
this if given plenty of time. So it's
up to the Seniors to get their timetables into the Publications office by
the end of this week.

With the theme song, "Lovely to

fashion show scenes in "Roberta,"
which featured Fred Astaire and
Ginger Rogers at local theatre slightly over a month ago, the fashion show
planned by members of the Women's
Undergraduate Society, under Ardy
Beaumont, will swing away to a musical beginning in the Hudson's Bay
Company store on Wednesday afternoon.
Varsity mannequins, with Blossom
Tuckey leading the way, will model
all types of feminine attire, from
sports clnthes to evening wear. Eight
University girls will take part in the
Betty White, Holly Locke and Audrey Horwood will be hostesses at
the fashion parade which will be
held in the Georgian restaurant of
the down town department store.
Hudson's Bay Company officials
have donated the use of *the entire
tea room for the W.U.S. display of
feminity, even in providing refreshments without charge to all those
who attend. Entrance to the store,
closed according to city by-law on
Wednesday afternoon, will be through
the Arcade entrance   on   Granville
Special elevators have been provided, operating from the basement
to the Sixth floor where the restaurant Is located.
The major work of the Society this
year is th» production of the Gilbert
and Sullivan opera, "Pirates of Penzance." Although this opera was produced five years ago its popularity is
so universal that the executive feels
it will draw the public.
At present the increased membership augers well for the success of
the production. As usual there is a
lack of tenors but the other voice
sections are well filled out. Gordon
Heron, "Biff" MacLeod, Kay Coles
and Margaret Atkinson are slated for
leads while Alice Rowe, a graduate
member, is also available.
This season has five recitals scheduled. The first to take place on
Thursday, Oct. 31, will feature city
artists. Archie Runcie, winner of
the baritone, class A, 1935 B. C. Musical Festival is to sing three numbers.
One of Vancouver's outstanding young
pianists Elsa Halpin, A.T.C.M., will
play two modern compositions. Finally Marjorie King Boothroyd, well-
known radio artist and winner of
the Toronto Conservatory Scholarship, will sing three songs. Vera Rad-
cliff, A.T.C.M., will accompany the
The second recital brings to the
fore the newly formed Modern Choir.
These singers will be accompanied by
the sociely orchestra. In addition the
program will feature the best of the
student sclo performers.
For th-2 second term three recitals
are planned.

The Women's Undergrad is sponsoring the tea dance. Ardy Beaumont discussed plans for it at the
W.U.S. meeting on Monday at noon.
"It's an awfully good way for getting

James Dyer, columnist in the News-Herald,
thinks the Ubyssey sports too many of his tribe.
He thinks us laizy rieWs gatherers and sug-
gests the reporters be forced out to do their
stuff, and not admitted back without copy.
Well, there's something to that. Only he overlooks the fact that the dailies snag anything
really newsy froni under our biweekly noses.
We print as much of the remaining dry speeches and routine meetings and trivial incidents
as we can stand. And then all we have left
are features like.columns.
Of course, the real reason for all the Ubyssey columns is this: mankind ia universally afflicted with a mental failing that we might call
Columnists' Illusions, by which he supposes
himself an unsung Winchell. When a sufferer
is also a valuable member of the staff, we grant
him his fling. He may build up something (that
is how columnists get that way. They aren't
born: even the best of them give you a pain
in the neck till you get used to them.)
And look what we have built up—"Parnassus" with its engaging illiteracy, "thorns" with
its boycott of capital letters and often goggle-
eyed incomprehensibility, "The Early Bird"

A good columnist, we think, must fit one
of three patterns: he must be aggressively unorthodox, or be devastatingly oracular, or be
plain skittish. In any case he mostly talks
through his hat. And in any case he becomes
both a side show and a public institution (same
Probably it is only natural that the graduates of this University who find themselves in
places remote from Vancouver, should experience a thrill in getting together and talking
over old times and old friends. It is certainly
true that these groups have a more vital conception of the true spirit of Alma Mater. There
are graduate groups scattered throughout this
province who are doing constructive work in
fostering the cause of higher education. We
take off our hats to these groups because they
are showing us what graduate organizations
can be. At the same time we must not forget those other graduates who are meeting
for the sake of fellowship in places such as
Munich, Oxford, London, Montreal, Toronto
and Winnipeg. They are teaching us that there
is something to meet for, if only we will come
out and do it. It is up to every graduate in
Vancouver to turn out on Alumni Day—not
necessarily to GET something, but to find out
what he can GIVE to the cause of the University in this province.
It's a queer think how the face of the
world changes. To me the face of the world
is a composium of all the newspapers I see regularly. It hasn't any more to do with the actual world, my actual world anyway, than the
faces of the people I know have to do with their
real selves.
The, death on Sunday of Sydney Smith will
alter the face quite perceptibly. A tooth will
be missing from the world's grin. "The Gumps"
never meant very much to me, not as much,
for instance, as Pop-eye, but I've always followed them as a matter of course.
Probably someone will step into the breach
and continue their adventures, but the kind of
mind that would skull-dug an unsuspecting
public with the slaughter of Mary Gold and
introduce Little Nell purely as local color isn't
encountered very often in these North American woods. They're bound to be different, and
I'm very sorry.
To continue the metaphor, no matter how
badly the face of the world is injured, eventually the scars seem to fade. The scar the Lindbergh Baby affair left is still present but' it
grows fainter year by year.
The death of Will Rogers scarred the face
of my world permanently.

In the past three weeks I have attended five
political meetings, with an average of three
speakers at each. Among the speakers were
Senator J. H. King, C. F. Laing, (Aberhart
stalwart), J. W. DeB. Farris and what's known
as a host of others.
The only gentleman who didn't split any
infinitives during the entire campaign was the
Rev. F. H. Stevens of Britannia Beach, more
power to the clergy.

The unnecessary and seeming enforced suffering of many people is
probably the most alive of the themes
that move modern art; certainly that
which it fresh and new in contemporary literature has been formed by
just this influence. The feeling has
become generally a definite sympathy
towards communism in thought. Such
of the new English poets, for example, as Cecil Day Lewis and W. H.
Auden are writing a poetry derived
from communistic conceptions, and a
poetry moreover that has already
achieved literary importance. The
old and ordinary charge of "propaganda" has no longer any value. The
belief and faith of a new idea has
moved profound minds to a sincere
response.   There is a new song.
Clifford Odets is an authentic part
of tha determinism in modern writing.
The play "Waiting for Lefty" is an
evident protest against the confusion
of these times. An attempt to arouse
sympathy by theatrical means is not
new, but Clifford Odets' manner of
presentation is very fresh and telling. He almost invents a drama form
that effectively and economically enables him to make the theatre serve
a useful purpose. The earnest and
spontaneous forcefulness that derives
from the emotional argument of his
play is an accusing contrast to the
heavy characterization into which the
modern stage has for the most part
The action of the play is given immediacy and point by the use of audience-actors; it roves the entire theatre, which becomes itself the author's
The production of the Progressive
Art's Club at the Labor Theatre was
not done by very experienced actors.
At certain points the movement thinned out to preaching, but the sincerity of tht- players made the performance effective. The definite and certain rhythm of the play was retained.
It is the intention of the P.A.C. to
produce "Waiting for Lefty" under
better theetre conditions. It should
certainly b? done at the University
Theatre. The play, which is so much
a part of these times, cannot be ignored.

Rather strained perhaps but interesting nt this time to note the influence of the proletarian movement
upon Japanese Literature. There has
probably never before been a time
when the serious writing of so many
countnos has met on a common
theme. The point has I think a great
deal of significance.
This book from the selection of the
Japanese Student Club is a collection
of modern Japanese short stories. The
writing is simple and vTithout exaggeration to give the effect of a magnificent realism. Each of the stories
is built mound a definite mood and
Is at the precise moment of the falling off of the mood brought to an
end. The assurance and skill with
which in most cases this is done

Odets.   Progressive Arts Club.
It is considerably ironic that the
Progressive Arts Club chose as a curtain-raiser for their much touted
Communistic play, a very gracious
apology for our present system.
Doubtless the unfamiliar art form of
a Chekov play, plus its comedy values, and maybe the fact that it is
Russian, accounts for their choice of
"The Bear." Or maybe Mr. Guy
Glover's present enthusiasm for
Chekov (for which I am warmly
grateful)  caused it
Anyhow, "The Bear" they played,
and "The Bear" it was that stole the
show for me. Mr. Glover and Bill
Sargent have, of course, an acting
technique that the earnest Lefty actors have not. Apart from this, and
apart from a slight overplaying of the
comic angle of the playlet—wise par-
haps considering the type of audience
—the effect of "The Bear," unpretentious as it is, had an honest impact
that "Waiting for Lefty," with its
triply underlined message, lacked.
The audience was impressed with
"Lefty" chiefly becaus..' they wanted
tn be. As a play "Lefty" is sentimental, theatric, and obvious, only occasionally  honestly  moving.

sweeping majority has come as a distinct surprise to most of us. The
majority foresaw a Liberal victory
but the same group through that at
the best this victory would be a narrow one and that there was little
hope of any party remaining in power longer than a six month period.—

By Dean F. M. Clement
There is no particular reason why
anyone of the following students
should receive special or particular
mention. At the same time, I have
tried to pick out some students who
have become prominent recently or
are well known in the student body
in regular attendance. I have chosen
two from each of the graduating
WL Mrs. Howard Green (nee Miss
Marion Mounce) was once known as
Miss Mounts but in the future will
be known as the wife of Howard
Green, M.P., for South Vancouver.
Mrs. Green's personal popularity was
of a great deal of assitance in the recent election. A large part of her
time is devoted to the proper bring-
big up of two husky sons.
Dr. Fied McKenzie is a member
of the staff of the University of Missouri. Fred is engaged in research
work; is married to a mid-western
girl and to all outward appearances
is a man of the middle west. At the
same time, his heart is in British Columbia.
1922. G. E. W. Clarke is a District
Horticulturist working under the Department of Agriculture in the Fraser Valley. His advice is readily accepted by a few hundred fruit and
vegetable farmers in the valley.
Dr. C. D. Kelly has recently moved
from xhi New York Experiment Station at Geneva to South Portland,
Maine. He is a bacteriologist and expert adviser to a large dairy company.
1923. A. E. Richards, past president
of tho Alma Mater Society is an assistant economist in the Department
of Agriculture, Ottawa. Richards still
wears a cheerful smile and is a bachelor.   Here's hoping.
Fred Welland is the principal of
the High School and teacher of Agriculture in the MacLean High
School, Haney. Fred has sent some
excellent students to the Faculty of
1924. Harold L. Steves is farming
the old homestead at Steveston. Harold has always been prominent in
the Holstein Breeders Association. He
is very popular as a judge at the fall
fairs in the province. He is an outstanding farmer.
Hugh McL. Russell is a prominent
member of the Western City Company Limited, a large bond house in
Vancouver. If Hugh jumps as high
in finance as he did in the high jump
as a student hs will establish a record in the business world. Hugh's
record at the University of British
Columbia is 5 foot 9.5 inches.
1925. Arthur W, Aylard is farming
and is cne of the few graduates who
can treat farming as a hobby. His
special pets are found among the Jersey cattk.
John C. Nelson, formerly Publicity
Commissioner of the Canadian National Railway in England, is now in
charge of the publicity department of
the Royal Bank of Canada. If you

education course at the University.
The Alumni will hold their Annual
Meeting   on   Friday.   Nov.   1,   in   the
dining room of David Spencer's Ltd.
Under the head of new business it
is anticipated that a plan of re-organization for the Association will
be introduced. This plan seeks to
create an Association of federated
branches having a central executive.
It is felt that this will give the
branches a greater voice and responsibility in Alumni affairs, enablv our
organzation to initiate and carry out
definite policy, and set up machinery
whereby tho opinions and views of
our organization can be ascertained
quickly from  time  to time.
Miss Dorothy McRae, our dinner
convenor, has arranged for 12,") persons and reports a very fine program
for your entertainment. Please lend
your support in making this a successful  meeting.
U.B.C Nursing
Department First
In British Empire
Organized under the guidance of
Miss Ethel I. Johns, this department
had its inception in 1920, with the
first graduating class in 1923. The
honor cf being the first University in
the British Empire to grant degrees
to nursing students goes to the University of British Columbia. Four
years ago. an arrangement was made
with the University of Alberta whereby the final year in the nursing course
for th^ir students might be taken at
this  University.
Since then, there have been seven
nurses came to us, with four more
in this year's class. Such an affiliation adds greatly to the interest now
being shown in the Nursing Department. To date, there have been seventy-three degrees granted to nurses
by this University.
Of the graduates from the Nursing
Department, 29 have deserted the
nursing profession for matrimony.
During the past year, Mary McPhee
C30) has married Alan Walker in
Shanghai; Mary Armstrong C30) has
married Dr. John Moscovich; Marion
Cardwell ('3D has married W. E.
Ricker; Ivy Dezall C32) has married
Dr. James Taylor; Victoria Swencl-
sky CZJ) has married Mr. Walsh of
New Westminster.
Fyvie Young (*31) has returned to
British Columbia after an interesting
year at Rockefeller Institute in New
York, where she received her Master's degree from Columbia University.
Isabel Henderson C30) is having
many interesting experiences as nurse
with the British Military Forces in
Hong Kong.
Heather Kilpatrick ('3D has opened
a new Public Health Nursing Service
in Youbou, B.C.
Mrs. Earl McLeod (Flora MacKech-
nie, '28) has returned to Victoria after
living in Manitoba for several years.
Most of tlv? class of 1935 have already    received    appointments.    Ada
Barlow, Doris Barton, Catherine Clib-
born and Florence Walker are on the
staff of the Vancouver General Hospital.    Florence   Barbaree   and  Ruth
Cheeseman   have    joined   the    City
Health Department staff.   Eileen Da-
i vies and Maxine Morris are attached
: to the Chest Clinic at tho Vancouver
i General Hospital.    Isabelle Chodat is
engaged   as  Public  Health  Nurse   at
Norah Cunningham is opening a
' new district in conjunction with the
newly organized Health Unit in the
Peace River Block. Mabel Olund is
a staff iuir.se at the Cowichan Health
Centre. Dorothy Sharpe has returned to her home in Winnipeg. Jean
Wilson spent the summer, since graduating, on a tour to the Old Country.
Looking back on the work of the Alumni this year, there is
some satisfaction in noting that considerable progress has been
made in interesting the graduates of our University in their
The work of the executive this year has at last demonstrated
one thing: that the members are willing to be interested if leadership and initiative are provided by the Executive.
The Executive of this year started at "scratch." The negative policy of waiting for fees to come in before contemplating
action was discarded and a programme planned to show the
graduates that the Alumni was alive and merited support. Bulletins were sent out in November and the Reunion Dance which
followed proved to be a huge success.
Encouraged by the splendid response to the dance, the Executive next turned its attention to the Chronicle. It was decided to issue this publication if $200 could be raised in fees.
A drive was instituted to induce as many Grads as possible to
take out Life Memberships in the Association and fifteen responded to our pleas. The loyal support of these persons made
possible the publishing of the very splendid Chronicle which
every member received. No distinction was made: fee or no
fee every member received a copy.
It was expected that the issuing of the Chronicle would result in a deluge of fees and it was certainly a bitter blow to
the Executive to find that up to the middle of October only
$16.00 had rewarded their efforts. Your officers, however, are
not discouraged and still have hopes that before the end of this
month, at least five hundred members will send in their fees
to the treasurer in care of the Regisrar's office.
So certain are they of this hoped for response to their efforts that they, in cooperation with the student body at the
U.B.C, are collaborating in the publishing of this Grad issue
of the Ubyssey which will be sent to all members of the Alumni.
We trust that you will enjoy it; we also trust that you will remember your Alumni after you read it.
There will be no Home-coming at U.B.C. this fall. It was
felt that the Reunion Dance at Christmas should take the place
of this function for this year at least and that the Annual Meeting should take the form of a dinner.
The A.M.S. wished to do something for theGrads and suggested an Alumni Day to be held on Saturday, November 9.
This was endorsed by the Executive and all Grads are urged
to show their appreciation of the very fine spirit shown by the
students by turning out and supporting their efforts. Let's all
be there at the Stadium on November 9th and show the students that we still have an interest in our Alma Mater.
Majority Of Summer Session
Graduates Are Instructors
Prof. H. V. Warren
He is the author of the story immediately below, on Graduate opinion in
the province.
Leaders In Educational
System Are U.B.C. Grads
Many of the leaders in British Columbia's public school
system are graduates of the University of British Columbia,
having taken one or more degrees here. The percentage of
important positions held by graduates of the University is
stadily increasing.
The following men and women are rendering splendid service in the field of education. It should be noted that the list
is by no means complete. The degrees mentioned are those obtained at the University of British Columbia. Several of the
persons mentioned possess additional degrees from other Universities:
H. B. King, B.A Special Educational Adviser to the Government.
W. Plenderleith, B.A * Inspector of Schools,

U.B.C. Senate Too
Metropolitan Say
Provincial Grads
During  the spring of this  year a
survey was made of various parts of
the province,  and  it was possible to
discuss Alumni affairs and sound out
the opinions of a considerable number of graduates.
There is throughout the Alumni a
; genuine interest in their Alma Mater
i and news cf it is eagerly sought. Possibly this interest is too personal and
jnot impersonal enough. It is always
j "How is old . .?" Seldom is it that
lone hoars "How is the standard of a
j department being kept up?" or "What
new research work is being undertaken''"
j Two concrete criticisms have been
I made aud thess were to the effect
jthat there was not sufficient non-
I metropolitan representation either on
I the Board of Governors or on the
I Senate of the University.
As the election of fifteen members
of Senate rests with Convocation, the
problem of the Senate lies largely in
the hands of the Alumni themselves,
and it should not be out of place to
say that the Vancouver Alumni are
only too willing to consider some arrangement     whereby     an    "Alumni
Slate" will ensure some outside representation.
Since  these   criticisms  were   made,
jDr. Weir has arranged for Senate to
j control   tho    appointment    of    three
j members to the Board so that both
j of the leading criticisms of the past
I are now answered.   Reference to this
matter appeared in the last issue of
the Alumni Chronicle.
It is also agreed that nothing would
bind the Alumni so much as some
common aim, such as that which resulted in the campaign to get to Point
Grey when thc University was still
in Fairview.
Some of the suggestions brought
fer ward were:
(1) A drive to finish the Students'
Union Building (nee Women's Union
j Building).
(2) A drive to establish at least
one  residential  college.
<3> A campaign to start a permanent endowment trust fund.
(4) The founding' of local scholarships to overcome the handicap under which present out-of-town students labour.
i All these matters will, it is hoped,
be discussed during the Christmas
vacation when many Alumni groups
will he represented at tho Annual
Dance ;nd Reunion, and it seems that
from these discussions there should
emergv an Alumni more united, more
aware c. f its responsibilities, and more
able to .share in making possible the
realization of the aims and ideals of
those   who   founded   this   University
Teachers From High
Schools Work Hard
For Degrees
Almost five hundred students were
in attendance at U.B.C. during the
summer session of 1935, and at Fall
Congregation a number of such students who had been attending such
sessions for the past six to twelve
years, received degrees.
The majority of Summer Session
graduates are members of the teaching profession and as such as scattered over the province. Among the
first of these graduates were A. S.
Towell, M.A., supervising principal of
Nanaimo schools, who received the
Fergusson Memorial Award for 1034;
F. C. Boyes, now superintendent of
the Boys' Industrial School; J. H.
Crelghton, M.A., whose thesis, "Central Banking in Canada," received
much attention.
At New Westminster a large group
of grads. divide their time between
professional duties and lacrosse
matches. Some of these are Mildred
Mercer, R. W. Ashworth, A. J, Lower,
Jack Davy, Charlie Lucas, Ernest Lee,
A. J. Dodd, Fred Pratt, Steve Moodle,
Clyde Smith and Ian Douglas. Mr.
Dodd spent a year at Timaru, New
Zealand as an exchange teacher. Mr,
Lee supervised the P. E. work for
unemployed youths In that district
last winter.
On the north shore are Kathleen
Woodward-Reynolds, E. I. Lane, E. G.
Edgar and Clara Wilson who left recently with her sister on a trip'
around the world—or at least as far
around as she can work her way.
W. Plenderleith, B. Paed., is inspector of schools in thai Peace River
District. We are told a sort of Social Credit system exists there, but
we don't know whether to envy or
pity him.
C. J. Frederickson, Kelowna, H.
MacArthur, Nelson, W. O. Neil, Prince
Rupert, F. A. McLennan, Ocean Falls,
E. R. S. Richardson, Comox, G. W.
Stubbs, Courtenay, Harold Campbell,
Victoria, hold executive positions as
principals or supervisors.
A. E. Foubister, Doug. Smith and
F. Harmon of Victoria and Dorothy
Williams,  Trail,  B.  McDonald,  Fort
George are on the list.
As for Vancouver ^niany of the
principals served a long term at Summer Session, among them being, the
Gamey twins, H. L. and H. W„
M.A., Morley Timberlake. I. D. Godfrey, H. E. Paterson, A. M. McDonald,
C. H. Shoemaker, A. S. Matheson.
Others teaching in the city are R.
T. Sharp, T. Alsbury, Florence Mul-
loy, Walter and Frank Hardwick,
M.A., Jack Keenan, Ray Atkinson,
Mervwn Kennedy, Walter McGowan,
Harry Johnson, E. R. Livingstone,
George Russel, Earl Boyes, Gordon
Jamieson, E. Scott Sims, Charlie Watson, Keith Found, C. Somerville, Gordon Wilson, George Cant, V. Mulvin,
and Don Pritchard.
Up to the present no attempt has
been made to tabulate the names of
students who were undergraduates at
Summer Session and the lists above
are incomplete; but all Summer Session grads. will appreciate the action
of this years' Student Council in devoting an issue of the Ubyssey to
the Alumni of the University and
will wish them success in their undertakings for 1935-36.
The Ubyssey congratulates the
graduates, particularly Lex McKillop,
'25, for the spirit of co-operation they
haw shown in getting out this supplement.
This is the first Ubyssey graduate
supplement in four years. The students would like to make the supplement an annual feature but this can
only be done with the full co-operation of the graduates.

Sciencemen May
Have Originated
Musical Society
Let others rave over the latest
rugby game. On this pleasant homecoming I want to write about the
Musical Society—a sort of pipe and
fireplace—reminiscence about an art
that has produced more cracked
throats and ear-aches than the most
thrilling basketball game or the coldest wind.
In the beginning someone must
have started the idea. Probably it
was under the stimulus of the Faculty
of Applied Science that the society
was organized. One can yet hear a
group of coveralled engineers as they
lean against ore-dressing tables and
pour forth their harmonies. It is true
that a few of the voices still reek of
the rugged Rockies and that the hair
of manly bosoms bristles with the
effect of downing bass opposition. Yet
the whole of the U.B.C. held breath
and listened spell-bound to them
"rolling home dead drunk" and voicing the weather prophecies of "Mr.
Something had to be done to use
such fine talent in harnessing the
power of Niagra. And so the Musical Society was born, a big child
with good lungs which were to be
well exercised.
True it was that there were a hundred-odd girls in the society too, but
how else would you lure a science
man away from his jigs, muffles, and
triobolites, to a bare auditorium.
True, too, that the songs were of a
less ferocious nature than "Hallelujah! I'm a burnt"—but it was amazing
how sweet the voices were as they
breathed out: "a baby's toes like sea
shells pink, would tempt, should
heaven see fit an angel's lips to
kiss." It was all too beautiful and
Strangely, too the spring concert
tickets were difficult to sell. The
good professors always helped out
but so often found the concert dates
conflicting with very Important business. As for the students, they were
particularly lowbrow and therefore
unappreclative of good music. However, >t was a great help when the
friends and mamas came to fill in
the va3t spaces of old Wesley Church
and applauded vigorously. There
I were many such careful, finished performances.
Then, in 1925, someone decided to
have some musical fun. Posters appeared — lurid things with strange
daubings representing over-dressed
Japanese, and the other characters of
Gilbert and Sullivan's operas. You
couldn't help knowing it was operatic because the posters carefully explained the fact.
It was an afternoon performance in
the old auditorium in Fairview. It
was free, and the place was packed.
The operatic performers sat on chairs
across the back of the auditorium
stage. There were no properties, no
scenery, no costumes, but performers,
yes. After all, true art needs no such
embellishments as here were lacking.
Then cafne the excerpts — solos,
duets, cmartets—up through the Latin
numbers which I have forgotten—to
full choruses taken from famous and
popular light operas.
The audience was pleased. The afternoon was a success.
But the way of all great ideas is
lined with cautious carping kibitzers.
The new ideas took gradually. But
slowly the executive began to see
what was pleasing its Dear Public.
Mr. C. Hayden Williams-, rushed out
to instruct the novice how to kiss
the leading lady while singing and
vice versa: to seek a pretty face with
a voice: to hunt out tenors which
were not, are not, and never shall
be. As the season went by, and the
Ides of March approached with tha
finals in sight the tempo increased
and the auditorium temperature rose.
The director's coat was shed. His
tie, collar and vest were thrown aside.
He urged, pleaded and raved. He
never swore. The play was doomed
to failure.   The world was in ruins.
Did you before the footlights ever
suspect the agony behind the smiles
of opening night? And so the procession of years goes by, success
breeding success. The lights blaze
over tho orchestra's shining movement and skirl; the conductor's arresting baton; the actor's scintillating
song. A far cry, song and dance
from old Fairview's beginning.

of special Interest ln a Scotch Lassie.
T. C. Asplnall Is cutting a farm out
of the forest in the Arrow Lakes. He
is interested primarily in poultry husbandry. The farming areas of this
country need more men like Tom.
1930. Fred W. Grauer expects to
graduate from McGill in Medicine in
the very near future. He did excellent work as a student in animal
husbandry. If he can do as well in
medicine he will be an expert adviser.
Ernest E. Peden is the only business
man in the well known family of
athletes in Victoria. Ernest is married and is a partner in the firm of

work at the station.
The Grad Letters Club was organized in the fall of 1932 in order to
take care of the large number of
graduates who persisted in turning
out to meetings of the undergraduate club thereby creating unwieldly
For four years the Club has had a
flourishing existence under the leadership of Jean Skelton, Anne Angus,
Emsby Yeo and Anne Brooks, the
president to date. Until this year
Prof. T. Larsen has shown his usual
kindly interest in the fortunes of the
group but lately the siren voice of
the Players' Club has lured him to
other fields.
During the first year various papers
were read, all relating to one subject, ''The New Humanism." Since
then members have chosen subjects
that interested them personally, and
a variety of papers frdm "The Five
Worst Classics" to "Gerard Manley
Hopkins," has been the result. The
Original Contributions Evening has
produced good, bad and indifferent
poetry, and the book meeting some
good reviews of the new books. Once
a year i. joint meeting with the Undergraduate Club is held at he University.
Last year the club lost some of its
most faithful members. Margaret
Grant married Dr. Malcolm Robertson and is now in Chicago; Sheila
Doher'.y is teaching at Dog Creek,
Dorothy and Doug Fraser are at Vernon; Jean Andrews is doing secretarial work in Seattle. The club lost a
good secretary in Mary Fallls who is
now in Toronto. Carol and Eugene
Cassidy are ln Japan and occasionally
send some offerings to the original
contributions meeting.
The Letters Club was one of the
first clubs on the campus to establish
a graduate section.
It may be of interest to graduates
both on and off the campus to learn
that the oranization known as the
Grad Club is still alive and active.
This club was organized some years
ago to fill a double need—to provide
a means whereby campus graduates
could meet and learn of other types
of research carried on in other departments and also to provide a
means of social contact.
The fust meeting of the Grad Club
for the present session will be held
at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Wm.
Ure, 4419 West Fifth avenue, on
Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 8:00 p.m. Mr.
G. J. Spencer of the Department of
Zoology will speak.
Students doing post-graduate work
on the campus are invited to attend.
The Social Service Section of the
Alumni was formed in the Fall of
1934 by a group of Social Service
grads who wished to continue their
interest in University affairs, especially those pertaining to their own
field. All graduates in Social Service
were invited to join. The group plan
to study and discuss the Social Service course given at the University
with a  view to offering suggestions
as to how it could be made more valuable.
Meetings were held each month
during the 1934-35 season and careful
record kept of the opinions of the
group. At the end of this period a
summary of suggestions was drawn
up and duly submitted to those in
charge of the planning and revising
the Course. Some of these suggestions
were adopted as noted in the present
The group is interested in keeping
in touch with the students taking the
course and in considering their problems. Last year a tea was held in
order that they might become acquainted with the graduates.
During the summer Dr. Bryant was
entertained by the members as it is

people visiting the City in order that
they may lend a contribution to the
The Annual Meeting will be held
Tuesday, Oct. 29, to plan Fall and
Winter activities, at the home of Miss
Isobel Harvey, 1926 Cypress street. All
graduates in Social Service are invited to attend.
The first annual meeting of the Society was held recently, and the reports given by last year's executive
showed clearly that much has already
been accomplished. The Society,
which is composed of the graduates
who have majored in history, was
formed for the purpose of continuing thoughtful discussion and fostering research work amongst its members.
The latter aim is coming to the
fore during the season, the topic for
discussion being "Vancouver's Fifty
Years." The papers are presented
by members who have done considerable research in the field of British
Columbia history, and, judging from
the merit of the one already presented, will add much to the historical aspect of the Vancouver Jubilee
One of the principal objectives of
the Society is to provide a book prize
for the student who leads the graduating class in history. The fund has
already been started, and it is hoped
than an endowment may" be built up.
Graduates who find it impossible to
attend the meetings of tlvs Society
are asked to assist by contributions,
large or small. The spirit of co-operation shown by all who have majored
in the work of the department of history is well known, and there is no
hotter way of manifesting it than by
providing suitable recognition for
those who are carrying on our tradition.
The executive for the year 1935-3C
includes; R. L Reid, K.C., honorary
president; Dr. W. N. Sage, faculty
representative; K. A. Waites, president; Arthur Johnson, vice-president;
Margaret Ormsby, recording secretary; Helen) R. Boultilier, corresponding secretary, and Creswell Oates,
The next meeting will be held on
Monday, Nov. 25, at the home of

A Grad was hunting In the
forest. A terrible storm came
up. He looked for shelter, but
there was none. It began to
rain In torrents, so he crawled
Into a hollow log. It fitted
snugly. The rain lasted for
hours and thc water soaked
through the wood. Thc log began to contract. When the
storm was over the Grad knew
that if he could not free himself that he would die of starvation. His whole life flashed
before him, especially his mistakes. Suddenly he remembered
that he had not paid his Alumni
Fees. This made him feel so
small that he was able to crawl
out of the log without any difficulty.

role of great and strong importance in the provincial Public School system.
Alumni Players9 Club Has Had
Successful Career Since Inception
Players Club Alumni feels very
much at home, appearing once more
on the campus. In spirit, it has
never really been absent, feeling
rather like an older brother, whom
time has driven out into the cold,
cold world, but who takes a brotherly interest in the fortunes of the
young fry and shares the family pride
in its achievements.
The formation of the club in 1933
gave concrete expression to this sentiment, not to mention another almost
equally potent one, the lure of the
footlights, for those who were wont
to face them in undergraduate days
—more or less successfully, And much
as new and gorgeous raiment, or
freshly acquired accomplishments are
aired first for the approval of candid
young brothers and sisters, so Players' Club Alumni has blushingly and
diffidently paraded its costumes and
spoken its piece to the University
students. Results appear to have
justified this procedure, for to date,
no alumnus has been hissed off the
stage, nor curtain fallen to a chorus
of boos, when the public was privileged to view the offering.
Some might infer from this that
students and public had become very
patient and long-suffering but unless
the former have changed in the last
few years, they never were ones to
"suffer fools gladly" or refrain from
speaking their minds, especially
when solicited. So it may be assumed that the public but confirmed
the opinion of "the family." and the
club was not letting them down.
The achievements of Players' Club
Alumni during the two and a half
years of their existence have been:
two groups of one act plays—early
in each year, two entries for the
Dominion Drama Festival and two
full-length, three-act plays at Graduation time. These last have been
specially chosen on each occasion to
add a touch of frivolity to the, might
one say, somewhat solemn nature of
the other functions and give students,
especially the graduating class, one
last healthy guffaw together.
Even now, plans arc simmering in
the heads of the powers that be in
the club, for another group of one-
act plays which are tentatively
planned for the first week of lectures, after the Christmas holidays.
These vill be, as last year, in the
nature of try-outs to choose an entry
for the Dominion Drama Festival,
which this year will take place at
the end of January.
Dr. Hairy Warren, energetic president of the organization, between
lecturing to students, travelling
through the province on extension
and University Alumni business and
last, but not least—guiding the destinies of Players' Club A'.umni, leads,
as may be suposed ,a somewhat hectic existance. He continues, however,
to remain cheerful in the face of his
complex activities and this year is
to have the assistance of Miss Betty
Buckland, former president of Players' Club as vice-president.
Amidst this group of old-time
Thespians, one might look for a
familiar staurnine face and listen for
a well known incisive—dare one say,
almost biting voice; and one would
not be disappointed, for there, also
"Freddy" is to be found, giving without stint both of time and effort, in
his desire to see the club develop in
the way he feels it is capable of
doing. Until this year Mr. Thorlief
Larsen, also, has made a significant
contribution and the club has parted
with him regretfully, solely because
of the already heavy demands made
on his tune.
Players' Club Alumni has an active
membership of somewhat under seventy-five. It's hope is that each year
its numbers will be augmented by
members of Players' Club who have
just graduated. These last are cordially Invited to become members of
the Alumni, which they may do
without fee for one year and it is
hoped that a powerful organization,
with many activities allied with the
actual presentation of plays, will
gradually be built up—an organization of which the students may feel
proud, us an integral part of the University.
Players' Club Alumni also hopes
that the students will continue to reciprocate the feeling of comradeship
and unity which animates its own
bosom and to keep on Inspiring them
with its approval when, from time to
tune, a^ it will, It makes its appearance at the University Theatre.

Sciencemen Working In
Many Parts Of World
As  the  University   approaches   its
twenty-first anniversary it is perhaps
natural  for  the  Faculty  of  Applied
Science to glance back along the already narrowing paths of perspective
and  to enquire  with some  interest,
some curiosity  and some feeling  of
pride  into  the  record  of  the ever-
lengthoninc stream of its graduates.
They are to be found nearly everywhere where there is engineering, or
its twin brothr, research, to be done.
Especially satisfactory is tha fact that
so many of our graduates are in permanent positions of importance. That
most of them are fitting into the life
and  industry  of the   province   and
country where they received their education is both gratifying and natural.   That those who have travelled
further afield have proved themselves
able ambassadors is only too evident
ln the   ready   granting   of   foreign
scholarshlpj and  positions to those
who follow in their footsteps.
In mine and smelter, in factory and
laboratory, In office and in the field,
whether in B.C. or elsewhere, Applied Science graduates may be found
doing their share of what Tredgold
once called, "directing and controlling
the great forces of Nature for the:
use and convenience of man."
Of our five hundred-odd graduates
the names and particulars of a few
spring readily to mind and their inclusion in this short account may
help to give those who are as yet
undergraduates In the Faculty some
kind of picture of the useful, interesting and diversified natures of the
lives which are being led by their

by W. \V. Yen, Chief Delegate of
China to the League of Nations and
by W. W. Willoughby, Professor of
Political Science at Johns Hopkins
University, this book givt-s China's
views on the conflict between China
and Japan. "You can fool some of
the people all the time; all of the
people some of the time; Lut not all
the people all the time." Now you
must read this book.
"Chinese Destines and China's Red
Army Marches"—These two books are
very interesting to read, although
they advocate Communism to a certain extent
"The House of Earth"-This book,
by Mrs. Pearl S. Buck, contains three
of her great works, "The Good Earth,"
"Sons," and "A House Divided." All
three books are most interesting to
read and certainly afford a close view
of the life of a typical Chinese family.
"The Changing Chinese"—This story
tells of the conflict of Oriental and
Occidents culture ln China. It describes in details, Chinese costumes,
labor, religion, and many other Important subjects. There ara almost

English"—This book gives the Analects of Confucius, the Sayings of
Menclus, the Travels of Fa-Hlen, the
Sorrows of Han and other articles
worth while your reading.
"China and the World War"-Of the
few works that have been written of
China through the Great War, this
is probably one of the best. In this
book we read of the attack upon
China bolh from within arid without,
the new foreign policy adopted by
China, the declaration of war against
Germany and Austria and the Chinese-Japanese Military Agremeent of
"Beasis, Men and Gods"—Here is an
adventure tale of wanderings through
Siberia, Tibet, and Mongolia. Read
about the March of Ghosts, the River
of the Devil, the Nest of Death, the
Man with n Head like a Saddle. The
New York Herald says of this book,
"One of the most thrilling authentic
personal narations of adventure ever
"China's Geographic Foundation"—
Look through the splendid illustrations, be introduced to the Chinese
system of writing, read about the
"Land of Contrasts," "The Changing
Map of China," "Farmers of Forty
Centuries," "China's Great Mineral
Production." Visit beautiful Shantung, enchanting Liaotung and mysterious Jehol.
"Leading Articles in the Chinese
Press"—These sumaries rendered into
English are undertaken with the sole
purpose of providing information on
the visws presented in thc Chinese
vernacular press on national and international questions. Tho book is
contained in 40 pamphlets.
"The Chinese Renaissance"—These
are lectures given by Dr. Hu Shih
under the Haskell Foundation in the
University of Chicago in 1933. The
original title of this series v/as "Cultural Trends in Present Day China."
"Chinese Forest Trees and Timber
Supply"—This book deals with the
forest problem in China and contains
notes on Chinese forestry.
"Understand the Chinese"—This is
another good book on China. In this
work, we meet the Europeans in China, we visit Shanghai and Peking, we
learn of, Ghengis Khan. We meet the
men who rule China, and we find
out why China is Christianized. If
you still do not care to read the
book, just look at the wonderful illustrations. See the Temple of
Heaven m Peking, the Emperor's office in the Forbidden City, President
Sun Yat Sen's Tomb in Nanaking
and numerous other famous places.
"Chinese Poetry" (translated into
Eng.)—A book well worth reading
for those who like poetry. Full explanation of the different types of
Chinese poetry given.
"Formation of the Chinese People"
—For those interested in this subject,
this book offers a wealth of information ln the numerous chart1:, graphs,
maps, and tables. The physical tracts
of the modern Chinese, the evolution
of the different groups of Chinese,
1500 years of Chinese census, the
three great northern invasions previous to 1011 A.D. and the integration
of modern Chinese are all dealt with
in this book.
"A Chinese Testament"—A very interesting biography of Tarn Shih-hua.
"A Sketch of Chinese History"-A
short and very interesting sketch of
Chinese History dealing with events
dating from B.C. 2852 to A.D. 1923.
The conquest of China by the Chinese, thc first struggle with the Tartans, the second struggle with the
Tartans, and the struggle between the
Chinese and Western Europeans are
all contained in this book.
"Ghenghi!: Khan Emperor of All
Men"—TOO years ago, a man almost
conquered the earth. He made himself master of half the known world,
and inspired mankind with a fear
that has lasted for generations. This
is hia Uory, profusely illustrated with
drawings and engravings.
"Conflicts of Policy in the Far East"
■The chief aim of this most interesting book is to assist the ciitzen in
understanding the forces underlying
contemporary International problems.
I recommend all students of history,
political science, and of economics to
read it. With the 56 pages of the
book Is given the reasons and solution of the Far East problem.
"Chinese Medlcine"-Wouldn't you
be surprised if your doctor diagnosed
your case by feeling your pulse only?
Read this article on the history and
practice of Chinese Medicine.
"Chinese Porcelain" — Read about
Chinese Pottery and see them.

f   Correspondence
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
One can forgive the members of
the Publications Board for their complete inability to write in the manner of pdult newspapermen, for after
all, they are only learning. One cannot, however, forgive a complete disregard for good taste. That they
should have learned somewhere back
in their .school days. When the amiable Mr. Sherlock feels himself
called upon to suggest subjects for
the address of one of the best qualified professors at this University, he
forgets his place a little. When,
however, Mr. Sherlock thanks Dr.
Coleman for having made his column
the best read feature In the paper,
he forgets that the attention of the
public is frequently won by mistakes—had the Early Bird come to
the convocation ceremony at which
Dr. Coleman delivered the address
attired only in his B.V.D.'s, he could
have acquired as much attention, and
merited far less criticism.—Disgusted
E Sote: We can hardly betieve'this
of Dr. Coleman, but not being there,
we do not hold ourselves in a position
to say.
I don't believe in good deeds any
more. Here out of the kindness of
my heart I help an out of town freshette and what happens?
Well, I might as well begin at the
beginning. Elsie is her name and
she sits next me in all classes. She
would ba awfully sweet but her
clothes look sort of, well, small town.
However, I'm not one to mind appearances and we are pretty good
friends, or were. It was her birhtday
last Thursday and she asked me to
go to town with her and help her
spend the check her dad sent.
I decided I'd help her out so took
her to ANNE MALONEY'S. And did
we have a good time trying things
on her. Finally I chose the swellest
plaid dress. It's an imported model
of the very softest material I've ever
felt. The plaid is in shades of red
and brown with a wide brown suede
belt, a scarf collar with fringed ends
and three of the sweetest plaid buttons on the long sleeves. And did
it fit smoothly? Elsie just looked
stunning. I began right then to doubt
the wisdom of my action. It takes
ANNE MALONE to bring out the
best in a girl.
Of course she had to have shoes to
go with the dress so we went down
hundreds of perfect shoes there.
Among them was n very smart brown
suede pair. They were almost ghil-
lies but were a bit more dressy. Just
the thing for campus wear. In tho
front were the tiniest tongues I've
ever seen, with just a suggestion of
a fringe. They were trimmed with
brown kid straps tying the tongue
to the shoe. Of course Elsie, under
my guidance, got them.
After that we went and had the
grandest tea at the BLUE GOOSE.
Crumpets anc1 honey and perfectly
delicious cak-os. Elsie paid of course,
but the price was so reasonable that
she didn't seem to mind. The tea
cup reader was figuring very prominently in her cup. And for me
there was nothing but bad luck.   She
didn't know how true she spoke. Elsie wore her new dress and shoes
out to Varsity on Friday and just
stuck as close as a leach to me. Of
course that very day Jack had to
come up and ask me to the game on
Saturday. I, worse luck, had another
date, and he took one look at Elsie
and asked her instead. Was I burned
The only bright spot in my existence right now (Elsie phoned last
night to say what a swell time she
had Saturday) is the new blouse I
got at MRS. PATTON'S South Granville LINGERIE SHOP. Poor comfort
you might say. But then perhaps
you don't know MRS. PATTON'S
blouses. It's' of white crepe smoked
in front in the trickiest manner. Just
wait till I get out to Varsity in it.
I'll show that Elsie that I still know
a bit more than she does.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your columnist, the "Early Bird",
has, since the Ubyssey commenced
publication this fall, elected himself
as a sort of Olympian critic to sit on
the heights above and cast scornful
glances at the university. In several
cases he has criticized merely for thc
sake of criticism.
I refer especially to his last column,
in which he details at some length
the number of "red" books in the
S.C.M. room. He has taken considerable pains to ridicule the S.CM. and
stigmatize them as Communists.
Surely a man who professes to be
a critic of university affairs should
I have enough knowledge of economics
to know that no modern survey of
the subject is complete without a
study of the social philosophy of
Marx end his adherents. Such a
study does not imply that these self
admitted followers of the Nazarene
are wild eyed fanatics who are only
waiting for a chance to blow up the
library, or kidnap the dean.
To build up such an amount of ridicule upon such a trivial basis, Is, in
my opinion, not worthy of the intellect of a university student, and if
"Sherlock" wishes to obtain a hearing for his views in the future, he
should not devote so much of his
time to hair-brained ideas in the
present.    You;s  truly,—Artsman.
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your columnist, the "Early Bird,"
has done the University a great service in exposing the S.C.M., or a certain sect'on of it, for what it really
is. I understand that they have a
study course on the subject, "Christianity and Communism," led by one
of the c.ly's socialistic leaders. Although this young lady gives the impression that she is pointing out the
differences between the two doctrines,
she is known as a disciple of Marxist
It would be well for the S.C.M. to
study the present system more extensively before delving into the
dangerous  doctrines  of  Communism.
Once ft/uiin I would like to thank
Mr. Sherlock for his excellent exposure, he would do well to keep up
this kind of work. Yours,—"Interested."
The Society, in affiliation with the
Carnegie Foundation, New York, has
for its purpose the study of International affairs. Juniors and seniors are

lost In the translation. "Villa For
Sale" will be played by:
Gaston, Jim Beveridge; Juliette,
Morva Longfellow; Jeanne, Josephine
Kennedy; Mrs. Al. Smith, Betty Moscovltch; Meld, Anna Cantwell.
In the character of Mrs. Al. Smith,
Guitry portrays the Frenchman's
conception of the typical American.
Built around the depression theme,
the play is characteristically French
ln its humorous treatment.

Rugby Wins: Football. Basketball Lose
U.B.C. Again Loses
In First Period
Purves and Bumstead Lead Province Attack
To 50-33 Win
Once again Varsity's Inexperienced
■quad of Basketballers held their opposition even in the second half of
• game after allowing a huge score
against them in the first. It happened against V.A.C.; it happened
against Adanacs; and it happened last
night against Province. The half-
time score read 26-10, and at full-
time it waa 80-33.
Inability to grab their share of re-
bound* and poor shooting w«re the
main weaknesses of the Collegians.
Pringle and Patmore were the only
ones who sank even a fair percentage
of their shots, although all the boys
were parsing well, and showing frequent buists of speed that left their,
heavier opposition ln a daze. Lucas
in particular wu fast with his floor
length dashes, but did not check his
■peed soon enough to get away good
Th* superior height of the Newsies
gave them i great majority of the
rebounds, and it was mostly on these
that Purves did hi* scoring. Dick
Wright, Bumstead and Osborne also
showed up well.
The Varaity defence in the first
twenty minutes was also weak. Their
zone defence system was not working
to anything near perfection; the opposition had a corner man system
that penetrated it easily until it was
tightened up. Pringle was tbe mainstay of the defence as well as organizer of the attack.
The second game of the night was
won from V.A.C. by the Adanacs
Here are the scores:
Province — Wright (4), Bumstead
(12) Purves (17), Smith, Osborne
(9), Will (1), McLeod (3), Gaernaey
(2), Parsons (2), Kennington. Total
Varsity—Detwiller (2), Turner (4),
Patmore (7), Berry (2), Lucas (6),
McKee (?) Pringle (8), Davis, Miller,
Hardwick.   Total 33.
U.B.C. Women's grass hockey team
scored their second consecutive victory when they defeated Varsity 13-1.
It was an easy game for the strong
U.B.C. eleven and they had very little
trouble in running up a large score.

Varsity will be out fighting for it*
first win tonight when they will meet
Doug. Muclntyre's V.A.C squad at the

victory to their credit so far. That
was against Varaity in the first game
of the season.

will take on the combined teams of
Magee, Britannia, and Tech at the
Varsity tr&ck.
The steam roller has finally arrived
and the track should be in excellent
shape. Lost year Varsity was defeated 64-41 and the boys are hoping to
give a more credible showing this
Such slars as Mush Limon, Earl
Matheson, Phil Bishop, Perry and
Haney will meet their former teammates in a real battle. Varsity's
chances depend upon Lucas, MacPhee,
Walt Stewart and McCammon; to say
nothing about the weather. The
Town weather forcast is fine on
Wednesday, so Varsity's chances
should be excellent.
The Art's '30 Road Race is the next
bif» event to take place, probably, on
Nov. 6 during the neon hour.
In order to get things lined up, a
meeting will be held in Art's 106 on

Close Rugby Battle
Goes To Varsity 11-8
Thunderbirds   Just Manage to Note Out
Grads in Thriller
Fighting back out of their slump
to a point where they managed to
eke out a win over their graduate
brothers, the Thunderbird rugger*
showed a vastly improved team Saturday afternoon, but, nevertheless,
one that must continue their climb if
they are going to fulfill their early
season promise.
A margin of 11-8 waa all that they
were able to accumulate in their
struggle with the Occasionals, even
though their opponent* were not full
Ragged play in the opening of the
second half accounted for this disappointing show, when for a while, the
Blue and Oold were no better than
in their previous brawl with the All
All the Varsity points were scored
ln the first canto.
Karri jun popped through the ruck
shortly after the Grads had scored
an unconverted try, ana Carey booted the extras to make it 5-3.
Number two was one of the brightest spots in a not-too-dull afternoon.
Robson produced one of the neatest
feint* in hi* career to evade three
men and drop across for a try. It
was not converted..
The final U.B.C. score wa* the re*
suit of a confused dribble, with several nun down on the ball a* it went
over the line. Neither wa* It eon-
verted. Thus the half came with the
satisfactory ahowing of 11-3.
But after the interval thing* were
not ao good
All cohesion was loat by the team,
and individual play came into effect.
The results, aa usual, were unfavorable, and the Occasional* made a converted try.
Toward* the end Varsity picked up
a bit, but no further scoring resulted.
The contrasting vigor and precision
of the epic All Black-Rowing Club
struggle immediately afterwards provided a most convincing demonstration of the necessity that faces the
Thunderbirds to improve their play
if they are to justify any hopes we
may have had of their repeating their
last year championship performance.
Thunderbirds Defeat Ex-Brits
By 17-5 Score
Playing on a field that was gained
by some clever strategy and refereed
by a would-have-been spectator who
had to use t, mouth-full of hollowe'en
horns as a whistle. Varsity's 2nd
Division English Rugby team trounced
Ex-Brittania by a score of 17-5. As
usual Varsity's score was composed
chiefly of unconverted tries—of the
five tries scored, only one was converted.
Shortly after the commencement of
the gamo Cunningham opened the
scoring with a nice try lor Varsity
which was followed soon after with
another one by Leckie Ewing. Bojh
tries went unconvetred. At this point
Varsity evidently considered the game
in the hag and Ex-Brittania evidently
agreed, with the result that the rest
of the half produced Indifferent rugby. However, when Ex-Brittania unexpectedly made a goal new life entered th° game and the second half
proved a veal battle with Varsity getting the best of it in the from of
three tries, only one of v/hich was
The last try of the game, scored
by Smith, constituted the nicest play
of the day—a short punt across Ex-
Britannii's line and a quick follow-
up. The playing as a whole was
mediocre hut there were cccasional
flashes nf really good rur;by when
the teams came to life.—COLTHURST.
In one of the fastest, hardest-hitting saints to date, Varsity lost 1-5
to the India Hockey Club on Saturday. The students managed to keep
their opponents even in the first half
but in the second, the Hindus broke
away. Maurice Trompour, goalie,
Ono and Knight, shared the honors.
The second University Golf sweepstake will take place at University

Council Manages to Eke Out
13-3 Win Over Pub
A decidedly one-sided game was
held on Friday in the gym. The
noble Pub had it all over the other
team but through murky work and,
as I am led to believe, through skullduggery the other team won. The
gents of the newspaper fought with
traditional punch and ginger to keep
the other team in check although the
latter managed to pull through with a
score of 13 to 3.
f The football strips, frock coats, and
straw hats of the Pub men put the
others, dressed in their gowns and
stuff, to shame. While the men decided on their campaign, a dupe by
the name of Rines pounded the Hunt-
and-Shove in an effort to write out
the line-up for your paper. For obvious reasons this material was not
used. The observant on-lookers also
saw undertaker Baird taking care of
the gale receipts (if you get what I
In the first few minutes of the
game, Dauphinee and Hobden starred;
so did the rest of the pub team. A
few points were scored but nobody
seemed to take much notice of them,
all eyes being focused on Grant's
trouser leg and his purple sock holder-uppers.
Time-out brought refreshments.
Copy paper and a caf tray decorated
the table while Dorwin Baird, Chuck
Rines and the pub team presided at
the urns. The invited guests were:
Dorwin Baird, Chuck Rines and the
pub team. By the expressions on the
faces of the other team, one would
almost think they knew that there
was alum in the lemonade ,
During the next few minutes, the
other team boosted the score to 11 to
3. It is common gossip in newspaper
circles that some cheating was being
clone however, as this goes to press
(if it ever does) the rumor has neither been confirmed or denied. After
another five minutes, the board read
13 to 3 for the other team. But were
the pubsters downhearted, wore they
ready tc give up? (yes), and so with
the usual good nights, the game came
to a happy close.
Injuries Defeat
Varsity Gridmen
Thunderbirds Hold Lutherans Even in First
Half But Lose 41-0.
First half: Gosh, everybody is happy—Ivor Moe, Doc Burke
and Bill Morrow can't help smiling, the band blares, and the
students yell encouragement. The Thunderbirds are outplaying
the Lutherans and are down only 6-0 after 30 minutes of play.
Second half: Then some tough breaks—successive injuries
send off seven regulars in 15 minutes and the other four need a
rest. The Lutherans surge on for five touchdowns. The students
sulk and the Meraloma supporters wisecrack.
But, to return to that first  half.
Frank Hay
St* Andrews
Manson   Scores   3   Goals
Beat Varsity 3-2
Experience was the deciding factor as St. Andrew* defeated Varsity's soccer eleven Saturday at Mc-
Bride Park by a score of 3-2. The
Saintly soccermen boast several stars
who rank with the best In the city,
and capitalized on the shooting ability of Murray Manson, who scored
three tunes, to carrry of all points.
Despite their loss, the green Students were in the battle all the way,
and sored first when Ikeda converted a croso from Irish for a pretty
goal about twenty minutes after the
kick-off. The advantage was soon
overcome, as ths Scots forced the
pace, and equalized within five minutes .is Manson headed a brilliant
Varsity appeared unsettled for a
few minutes after this, and Manson
added two more goals for n 3-1 lead.
The fir.it came on a slow ground
shot that appeared to be going wide,
only to bounce in off the post. Greenwood allowed the ball to slip out of
his hands and cross the line for the
final Scottish tally.
Before  the  cross-over,  Chester reduced  the  deficit  as  he  scored  the
last    goal    of    the   game    from    a
Play v as even in the second stanza,
with the Saints' forward making littl-j
headway against a stubborn defence,
and the Students unable to equalize.
The Blue and Gold defence worked
together much better in this half,
covering up well, and checking a
smart forward line to a standstill.
The team: Greenwood; Quayle,
Sutherland, Thurber, Croll, Swect-
num; Irish, Sager, Goddard, Ikeda,
Chester.    Sub.,  Wolfe.
Truly it waa the shining light of Varaity'* American football career. The
boy* began to click right after Bucky
O'Connor scored for tbe visitor* on
an end around reverse play. The defense clicked fir«t-a Lutheran back
wu smeared before he could throw
a pass, Shadow Gray knocked down
two more passe* and someone blocked
a Lutheran kick.
Then the Thunderbird* gained possession and some real blocking and
running began, frank Hay gained
first six yard* and then four yard*
through the line for a first down;
Bill Warnkin, with Interference In
front of him instead of behind him,
tore off IS yards; then Jack Charlton,
playing a swell gam*, ran th* ball
another IS yards. Hay made one more
short gain to make it SS yards on
three successive plays.
Bob Twiss' kick wa* blocked and
Varsity's trip downfield was stopped.
Ray wa* In the middle of the field
until half time.
Soon after the half the benchward
march of the injured began. Twiss
was first, then Boe and Warnkin. This
weakened the line enough for three
Lutheran first downs and a touchdown on an end run.
Parkinson was next with an injured neck and then Vine with a bad
eye. Nearly every play produced an
injury. Frank Hay limped off with
a sprained ankle and two or three
Lutherans knocked Gray down the
hard way.
The Americana then set to work to
pass and end-run their way to three
touchdown*. Votaw, a back with
speed to burn, went around the end
for two of them. The game ended
Again Al Young deserves mention
for 60 minutes of play, Shadow Gray
for a great game at fullback, Frank
Hay and Jack Charlton for some swell
ball carrying, and Twiss and Preston
for hard work in the line.
The time-kepeer probably scored as
many points as all the rest of the
Pacific Lutheran team together, for
the game was much too long. According to people who kept their own
time, tho score would have been 21-0,
had it not been for this unlortunate
mistake of the official. This is substantiated by the fact that U.B.C.
held the Lutherans until fairly late
in the game which would probably
have been over before the collapse
came. —TAYLOR.
