TOTEM PLANS
PROCEEDING
Work has already started on the
1938 Totem under the direction of
editor Dave Crawley. This year it
will be more informal with a decided pictorial trend. Last year a
popular short resume of the year
will be expanded to include copy
and illustrations on social functions, games, homecoming, etc.
At present, negotiations are under way tor several colored pages
of art work which will include cartoons and illustrations of campus
life. This feature depends entirely
on the amdunt of estimated Totem
sales.
Sittings for Senior pictures commence this week. Since the Totem
ls to be published early in March
there will be no waiting for latecomers   this  year.
Those with suitable pictures for
the Totem are asked to see Dave
Crawley. Regular rates will be
paid for all photographs used. The
picture owners will also receive a
credit line.
As usual there will be Totem
waivers so that students may pay
for part of their Totems out of their
Caution Money.

' Arts 100 was filled to capacity
Saturday night when Dr. J. A.
Pearce, Assistant Director of the
Dominion Astrophyslcal Observatory at Victoria, spoke to the Vancouver Institute on "Exploring
Space."
Dr.  Pearce  emphasised the  recency of many discoveries In the
field of astronomy.    "At the time
of   the   founding   of  this   University   In   1915,"   said   Dr.   Pearce,
"scientists held almost the Greek
Idea   of   the   atom   and   the   universe."
The   lecture   was   illustrated   by
lantern slides of stellar photographs
and diagrams, which Impressed the
audience with the profusion of stars
and the vastness of space.
"There   are    106,262   booka   In
Mr.   Ridington'*   library.    Counting 40 letters to the line, and 40
lines to the page, there mra about

"In the last two decades," stated
Dr.  Pearce, "we have learned how
to   measure   the   distances   of   the
stars,   but   have   not   changed   our
conception   of   the   universe."

in the auditorium arranged for the student body.
Shortly after 3 o'clock, the procession of professors and
university officials, in their colorful academic dress, will leave
the Library, and cross the campus to the auditorium.
It is expected that students will line part of the route, as
a gesture of respect to the Premier.
At the congregation, Mr. Pattullo will give the main address, after he has been honored by the university.
A number of degrees will be awarded to students during
the ceremony, with about 65 expected to be admitted into
Convocation of the university.
Following the Convocation, the Premier and other distinguished guests will proceed to the gymnasium for a tea and
reception.
Wilkinson, Disher
Organizers
Heralded by the blaring of
nearly two hundred auto
horns, Varsity will be on parade early Wednesday afternoon to acquaint downtown
Vancouver with the fact that
the Big Game is on.
Every student who can borrow or steal something on four
wheels will be there.
GREEKS GIVE CARS
Arrangements for the parade are in the hands of Ted
Wilkinson, successful organiser of the one held last year.
He will be assisted by Ted
Disher.
Ten cars at least have been
guaranteed by each fraternity, and other organizations
are arranging for their quotas.
POLICE ESCORT
The parade will leave the
campus at noon, proceeding
to the downtown area.
A police motorcycle escort
will be in attendance, shepherding the parade downtown
and back again.
Those with cars available
are requested to give their
name to Ed Disher immediately.
The line-up will form in the
Mall shortly before the parade proceeds on its way. Caf
announcements will supply details as to formation of the
line.
Engineers Drink Toast after Toast
Fan Dance Delights
Sciencemen atBanquet
Starting in the lobby with Science songs and yells, an exuberant
procession of Sclencemen packed
their way into the Astec Room of
the Hotel Georgia for the annual
Science banquet, held Thursday
night.
DECEPTIVE FOOD
The menu, with the food masquerading under the usual misleading names adopted by the engineers, was the introduction to the
evening. Following the toast to the
King by Jack Davis, S.M.U.S. president, Gordon Snelling toasted the
faculty. The toast was replied to
by Dean Finlayson, who regaled the
assembled redshirts with a story
concerning a book and a baby.
NO MORE LUNG POWER
After the engineers had exhausted their lung power on songs and
yells, an illustrated talk on the
Mesopotamian campaign was given
by Major G. A. Walkem. Other
speakera were Col. Wilkin and Dr.
MacLeod.
Dancing and singing was supplied
by Miss Phyllis Hirst and Miss
Gladys Cooper ,the former presenting a modified version of the fan
dance.
DEAN BUCHANAN SPEAKS
Dean Buchanan spoke, after
which Prof. Gage was given an
opportunity to reply to the aspersions cast earlier in the evening by
Col. Wilkin.
Charlie Davenport, fifth year
Chemical Engineer, was the recipient of a certificate of proficiency
from the E.I.C. This was presented
by Mr. P. H. Buchan. Final speech
of the evening was given by Prof.
Lighthall.
PHRATERES
ATGAYPARTY
Phrateres let themselves go at
their "Bad Manners" party in the
Peter Pan ballroom on Thursday
last.
TERMAGANT MOTHER-IN-LAW
Members were received at the
door by the club exceutive in the
role of the "Van Freighters"; Pa,
Ma, and their three children—Flapper Carrie, Gangling Junior, and
Young Sissie. With a pious Great-
aunt, and a termagant mother-in-
law, this happy group demonstrated
what the well-bred family doesn't
do.
ONLY ONE KNIFE
At supper, guests discovered that
there was one knife between every
dosen diners, so boarding-house
tactics were very much in evidence.
This state of Social upheaval continued until the community singing
which directly followed the meal.
GIRLS LEARN RULES
But "it's more fun if you know
the rules," announced President
Nora Sibley, so the girls decided
to learn them. The flrst lesson was
presented by Miss Clare Brown, ad-
viror to Phrateres, who spoke on
"Etiquette," and concluded her lecture with a "true and false" questionnaire.
Next, Miss Gertrude Moore, women's P. E. instructor, discussed
"Posture"; Miss M. L. Bollert, Dean
of Women, talked about campus
clothes from the faculty's point of
view; and Mrs. Renee Clou, the
beauty expert, gave the rules for
care of the hands, hair and face.

JUST ANOTHER CONFERENCE?
It would seem to be a custom in this enquiring aire for
groups of enthusiastic young people to stage numerous conferences for the purpose of discovering the nature and reason
of things.
One such conference is being planned for Winnipeg this
Christmas, with Canadian university students in attendance.
On this campus, committees are "preparing" for the conference, and looking forward to the trip, the spectacle of Winnipeg in mid-winter, and the pleasure of meeting students
from other universities.
It will cost each U.B.C. student who attends the conference $50 for expenses. This money, the source of which ia
still uncertain, will be well spent if the conference succeeds
in its aims—namely the solution of all and sundry problems
facing the university student of today.
We question, however, the degree of success that the
conference will attain. Past gatherings of a similar nature
have had little or no effect upon the subsequent life of those
taking part, and absolutely no effect upon those who strove
to send the delegates to the meeting.
A three or four-day conference on student problems
seems useless when considered in the light of its beneficial
effects on those who expect to gain from reports of delegates.
There are big problems to be met by students. There is
plenty of room for discussion and study groups and round-
table talks in the attack on these problems. First, however,
the attack should be made locally; our zealots should spend
their time and energies right at home.
A conference on student problems, held on the U.B.C.
campus, could accomplish a thousand times as much as the
intricate set-up of the Winnipeg gathering.
National conferences have such a wide field to cover,
and the delegates' interests are so varied, that there is little
hope for any results from any such meeting, even under the
auspices of the S.C.M.
Consideration should be given, therefore, to this proposal
that U.B.C. drop its support of the Winnipeg conference, and
devote its energy to solving problems, national and local, by
means of concentrated study.

RING LOST
Gold ring set with ruby, lost.
Highly valued- by owner. It ia important that this ring be returned to

ARTS MEN.
•^ Once again the A.M.U.S. has
been "reorganized." Once again a
new president has made promises
to the fifty or so who elected him,
and one more executive is out to
sell the Arts Ball, and then forget.
It would be much better if the
Arts men forgot entirely about elections and their annual social sellout. Other similar groups on the
campus, like W.U.S. and S.M.U.S.
operate the year around. They are
live organizations who have made
real contributions to the life of the
campus.
After watching lt for three or
four years, the funny side of the
situation ls no longer Impressive.
A small fraction of the Arts men
elect an executive, stage a stiff and
formal ball, and consider their duty
done.
Perhaps there are other Jobs in
sight for potentially powerful
groups like the A.M.U.S.
TEADERSHIP.
From somewhere must come
the leadership this year In the matter of setting right an unbearable
condition on this campus. From the
students must come the Initiative
in the inevitable effort to relieve
cramped conditions at U.B.C. What
better group than the men ot Arts,
wtth their free time, their Influential connections, and their impressive  numbers?
It is the students who are suffering under present conditions, crowded into labs and lecture rooms,
tn many cases with near-disastrous
effect upon studies. No amount of
editorials or protests on overcrowding from the Ubyssey will be of
any use, unless some scheme to
bring this condition to the attention of the right persons at the
right times 1b advanced—from some
section  of  the student body.
Here, then, ts something really
worth thought. If members of the
new A.M.U.S. executive can get
their minds off the problem of providing entertainment for the 90 per
cent of the Arts men who didn't
bother to turn out at elections, they
might be able to do something ot
real value to students ot today and
tomorrow.

*    By The Beggar Student    |
It seems that it is time something
was done. For weeks
SIT-DOWN the Ubyssey has been
STRIKE? blasting away at Mr.
Pattullo with editorials about over-crowding. Yet nothing has been done.
The greatest weapon that our
modern system has developed is the
sit-down strike. It could meet the
present situation, by bringing home
to the government just what overcrowding means. If a thousand or
so students went over to Victoria
and camped in the Legislative
buildings for a week or so, something would be done, and done
quickly.
An over - crowded government
would be only too pleased to adopt
any means to remove the over-
crowders. But we are afraid that
the student body, characterized by
apathy for the last ten years, would
be efficient over-crowders for anybody but themselves on their own
campus.
The over-crowded Oakalla situation could be relieved at the same
time. If new buildings were started
on the campus, the government
could employ "tin-canners" and
give them a chance to live like
human beings again. The only surprising fact to us ia that they have
not though]: of this before. They
are perfectly willing to spend
money to keep these men in Jail,
where they can crystallise their
anti-social tendencies into actual
bitterness, but as for using that
same money to pay them wages on
constructive projects, the muddle-
headed incapacity of our present
legislature to dp that most elementary of mathematical sums concerning two and two, prevents any
action being taken.
It may be argued that it costs
more to pay men salaries than to
keep them in jail. But what is the
money value of an increasing bitterness and rancor towards a society which calls hunger a crime?
Eventually, if something is not done
for these men, there is going to be
an explosion. Normal desires cannot be repressed forever.
If the men we have elected to
make our decisions for us reveal
that they are incapable of reaching
even the most obvious conclusions,
it Is time that a few of the electors
whose mental processes are more
alert got to work pointing out a
few of the simpler things—which
the legislative brain may be able
to grasp. And the situation here
is one of them.
It Is interesting to note the depressing regular-
ADVICE TO ity with which the
THE ACTORS Players' Club
chooses plays representing a narrow, dated school
of thought. The news reaches us
that they will do Maeterlinck, who
was a first rank playwright as long
as his themes were a aubject of
polite converaation. Then, Pelion
upon Oasa, they follow this by a
Bernard Shaw.
Both of these men had something
to say. They did not, unfortunately,
say it in a manner which will continue to hold its appeal.
Already their plays are remote
from the important phases of life.
And they have not the essential
dramatic value to stand by themselves.
The Club waa going to give us
Shakespeare. And they will give us
a mellerdrammer—this latter fine,
natural, broad comedy. Why they
should choose to sandwich two very
acceptable offerings between two
which are not only moribund, but
are not even the beat work of the
authors chosen, is something to be
sought only in the inscrutable
mental processes of the Players'
Club executive.
If they muat give topical plays,
they ahould do the onea which are
being written today, or, if the royalties on these prove too great a
stretch on the undergrad pocket-
book, at least those whose themes
are atlll problema.
They should remember that they
are playing to an undergraduate
audience ,and not a specialised class
in the history of dramatic trends.
And it is their tastes that ahould
be considered. After all, they pay
the bills.

many students, this was only the
verdict ot the Parliamentary Forum
Thursday evening.
ABLB LBADBR
Struan Robertson, an able leader
formerly of Victoria College, directed the government tn its successful debate. Robertson maintained that the elimination of poor
students would speed up education.
Classes would no longer be hindered by those mediocre students
who were unable to grasp quickly
the text of a lecture.
Robertson suggested that special
downtown training for these poorer
students would benefit them more
than wasting four years on "pipe"
courses at the University. He said
that the poor students selected
these "pipe' 'courses in order that
they might successfully pass thetr
exams.
QEOROE  QREQORY
Oeorge Gregory led the opposition. In emphasising the point
that there were not many poor
students who sueeesded In receiving their degree, Gregory Introduced the fact that th* number of seoond class students at
the end ef last term exceeded
that of flrat elass and pass together.
He claimed that what was needed
was higher entrance standards and
not harder exams.
Thla, he thought, would eliminate
the poor student entirely from the
University, rather than allowing
htm to experience a taate of varsity
life and then get "kioked out."
Although the attendance was
small, 17 speakers participated in
the debate. Many ot them were
new to the Forum.

Whiskers in The Dark
—A Nnv Chang Sttmy Sbqusl
GONE WITH THI RAIN
CHAPTER 3—
A howling gale screamed across
the campus out of the night, bowing down the roaring trees under
sheets of rain, and whisking cloads
of autumn leaves and old Ubysseys
from gutter to gutter. Lightning
flashed, silhouetting for an Instant
the sinister form of Chang Suey
crouched against the rain-swept
Cairn. His baleful hooded eyes were
fixed on the lighted windows of* the
Library, and he listened to the wild
strains of music and screams of
drunken laughter that came to him
down the gale.
A gong clashed faintly somewhere inside the Cairn, and a moment later a secret panel slid open.
Several bats flapped out, followed
by Chang's faithful henchman, So
Long and  Doom  By.
"We have witnessed the orgy as
the venerable master has commanded," said Long, bowing low. "Dr.
Redgwlck is there, likewise the
Princess Maria de Beandollert and
the Quadrilateral Club. It is truly
said that King John makes merry
tonight."
Uttering a horrid laugh, Chang
hooded his baleful eyes and leered
evilly at the distant building. Then
groped for his camera.
THE   LBCHBRER'S   DOWNFALL
"We must get Redgwlck aside and
question him," hissed Chang to his
minions. Immediately Ooom By
pursed his lips and emitted a loud
peculiar noise like that of a cork
leaving a bottle. Redgwlck raised
his head.
.Twice more Ooom made the
sound, and Redgwlck tottered to his
feet and came towards the shadows
where the Orientals were concealed.
Quickly the Orientals seized him,
and bore him to the phone booth to
question him.
"Redgwlck," hissed Chang, hooding his eyes balefully, "where ls the
Union Building? Speak, libidinous
one, or die!"
As Chang uttered these words,
he gave a satanic smile and produced an evil looking flagon.
"Caf coffee," he announced, as
Redgwlck started eagerly towards
the flask. Redgwlck gave a broken
sob and turned pale.
THE RIDE OP TEN THOUSAND
DEATHS
"And if that falls to persuade
you, my fran'," hissed the cunning
Oriental in vulpine tones, "there ls
|". . DEPRAVITY AND CONCUPUSCIENCE . ."|
This unusual camera study by Hambury was made at the Quadrilateral Club orgy in the Library last week. Seated from left to
right are sap Boberts (disguised as an English professor), H.R.H.
Princess Maria de Beanbollerts, Dr. Redgwick, King John, and
Countess Panning, while faintly visible in the background may be
seen  the sinister features of Chang  Suey disguised as a  Caf
waitress.    -
he followed hia minions Into the
secret staircase, not noticing the
two forms that slipped in after him
ere the panel had clanged back in
place.
SCRIBBLBWBLL   IN  ACTION
"I can crash anything," whispered
Hambury to Oscar ScriDblewell as
they followed' the Orientals down
the draughty corridor.
"If this party la like I think It
it, you'll be lucky if you can crash
your way out again," said Scribble-
well ominously.
Down the hellish labrynths ot the
sewer they followed Chang'a guttering torches, past piles of human
bones and cunningly wrought
shrines to the Ooon Ood and Shrdlu
Btaoin, muse of Muck. Finally they
emerged in the South dungeona of
the castle and extinguished the
torches.
Peals of demoniacal laughter
echoed through the dark chambers
from the dining hall above. The
three crafty Orlentala followed by
Scrlbblewell and Hambury cautiously stole their way to the main floor.
The sight that greeted their eyes
is better Imagined than described.
Even Chang who was inured to
spectacles of the utmost depravity
and concupiscence blanched at the
sight.    Hambury, pale and shaking.

stop.
"Not that! Anything but that!"
screamed Redgwick in horror. "I'll
talk!'"
"Then where ia the Union Building?"  barked  the malignant  Suey.
The old man subsided in a pitiful
sobbing heap, but was hoisted to'his
feet again by So Long and Ooom
By.
"The Princess Maria de Beandollert stole the plana from my office
one evening," he stammered, blushing in shame. "She is a Ruaaian
spy."
"And where are they now?"
Chang spat out the words, hla wlng-
Jing gleaming against Redgwick's
throat.
"She haa them with her now. Tonight she hopes to steal the plana
for the Library addition after King
John and his guests are in a atupor.
And at midnight" — Redgwick's
voice was shrill with horror—"she
Is to smuggle them down to Belch
Beach where Count Aramonde von
Pollette is waiting ln his submarine . . ." With theae words the
old man fainted.
Chang   glanced   at  hia   Ingersoll.

VARSITY IN SECOND CLASH WITH ALBERTA
Sport Snaps
by

Well, well, maybe this paper'a
polloy of campua newa flrat in the
"Ubyssey" is being taken tor a ride
. . . that one by Herald scribe Bill
Dunford about the Varsity ruggers
tooling southward to ahow in a prelim to a Husky conference claah in
the big Seattle U. bowl waa a new
one on us . . . and '.wouldn't surprise your columnist one wee bit
if the Dobblemen took the jaunt,
not after the 40-0 drubbing they
pasted on 16 befuddled and bemudded All-Blacks laat Saturday.
TAYLOR HOT
And all you poor peoplea who
thought you were rooked whan
these all-powerful Student passss
didn't fass deerkesplng third
basoman Pat Thomas at Athletlo

a powder any time now. . . .
Chuok Taylor's show, although
quits tsohnloal In apots, was
worth five times that ehunk ef
sliver plua your very beat Bun-
day topper . . . and the way dead*
eye "Joe" Pringle fell suoksr to
a Taylor pass through his pins
—eh met ... but that bit ef byplay waa Just one ef a hllarleua
aeries, and probably wouldn't
have oopped number one billing.
BASKET MOANS CEASE
And the basketball club can put
a stop-valve on the Blue-singing
pipe . . . the letter sent to World
series proposer Miller by M.A.A.
prexy Lyall Vine didn't squash the
chances for the title go by any
means. ... In fact. In the epistle
all ailments which would send the
hoopers under the covers were enumerated, with sure-fire cures reamed off for most of them . . . the
main bugbear's between the A.A.U.
of Canada and the B. C. basketball
amateur union ... if and when this
duo holds a few gab-fests, the
Thunderbirds should swing gracefully  onward  to  a  World  title  go.
ALBERTA  va.   U.B.C.
That mot "go" remlnda ua of a

berta'a Golden Boara and U.B.C.'a

deeldo the destination of tho Hardy oup . . . those Saakatohewan
blighters Jolly well took earn of
that with a 22-1 lopsided win ever
the Albertana laat week . . . But
don't let a little thing like that
keep you away from the Plfth
Avenue playground, bsoauaa you
can take It from Vmn VI let's gridders they'll be out for blood . . .
and to regain a long-lost preatlge,
those same plgaklnners mean to
plaater more than the odd prairie

yessuh, and as an Evangelist. . . .
Maury Lambert, newly-elected Ice

a cinch for the U. stick and blade
artists to land a spot ln the local
Benlor amateur loop. . . . Jim Mo—
Cammon, husky fifth year Science-
man, ls back in the caf grind once
more . . . and Ooaeh Dobble'a breaking down with the odd grin at prea-

scrums to the four winds. . . . And
Dobble's re-enrolled Harry Lums-
den, one of laBt year's attacking
sparks on the three line, to the
rugger ranks. . . . Bill "Hank" Hud-
aon, another member ot last year'a

swishing them from outside the

Bill Hodgson, one of Van Vliet's
ace linemen for the last couple of
years, will be right in there tomorrow night when the Thunderbirds
swoop down for a meal of Golden
Bears . . . we hope.
CO-ED
SPORTS
By MYRNE NEVISON
Under Friday's sunny skies eight
cupids—oh, pardon me—co-eds —
took bows and arrows to start the
ball rolling in inter-colleglate competition. The big occasion was the
"Dominion-wide" archery tournament with Weatern, Toronto, McGiil and U.B.C. participating.
NOT BAD. GIRLS!
A otal of 700 points was amassed
by our team. Not a record-breaking
total by any means, but still a large
score for a university so new to
archery as we are. The result was
forwarded by air mail and some
time this week the final results will
be known.
The girls representing U.B.C.
were Hilda McLean, high scorer
with 157 points to her credit;
Beth Evans, Jean Meredith, Pamela Runkle, Ailsa Braldwood,
Margaret Flndlay, Emily Fraser,
and Mary Craig.

U.B.C. WINS
In a typical flrat-of-the-aeason
game, the U.B.C. eleven defeated
the new North Vancouver entry
3-1. At the breather the score
waa 0-0 after a very indifferent
bit of playing. Freahette Gerry
Armstrong started the co-eds on
the right path with a beautiful
shot. North Van rallied to equalise the count, then watched vainly
as U.B.C. drives netted the Blue
and Gold aquad two pointa and
gave them the game.

Maury's   boys   are   In   flrst  class

Matthlaon  are both out  with  bad

likely to be saved for the Saturday

BELLIS  BACK
Art Bellls is expected back into
the lineup and will go into the
backfleld along with Farina, Harmer, Williams, Qrey and Boe. The
line will start in just about the
same manner as In the previous
encounters with increased confidence and a world of experience
from all those games where the

might apply te the 'Birds and as
neither team appreolatss this
type of talk they will be playing
In that, they oan't aay that about
ua or we'll ahow them mmnn*r.
PASSING   ATTACK
, Now, as for the type of play that
the Alberta team features. They
seem to swing to the passing game.
In recent games they have completed 50 per cent of their aerial
attempts, which means a lot of
yardage. In Thompson and Rule
they have two men who can toss
and receive the ball ln game-
wrecking manner. Also they have
in the line, Bob Zender and Bill
Stark, whose experience on the
rearguard of the Bears' hoqkey
team should stand them ln good
stead in the matter of blocking and
tackling.
And what's more, thoao aamo
Albertan Beara don't aeem to be
able to forget that 22-1 'drubbing
at the handa of the Saakatohewan
Huskies . . . whieh mosns they'll
be out to effectively smear, the

IN SEMI WIN
Durkin In Default
Victory Over
Leckie
Coming from behind to register
an exciting win over medalist Maurice Wright, lanky Wilf Balderston
advanced to the final ot the Annual
University Golf Tournament at the
University course over the weekend.
After holding a 2-up lead at the
18th hole through some smooth
stroking In the early rounds, Wright
suddenly blew sky-high and then
was forced to sit back and watch
his opponent gradually take the upper hand on the laat tew holes.
DURKIN  IN  OBPAULT WIN
Stan Durkin won the remaining
quarter-final match by default .-over
the Injured Roy Leckie. Durkin
will meet Pete Vlckers in the other
semi-final with the winner stacking
up against Balderston in the final
some time tbls week.
College Ruggers  Swamp
Blacks In Saturday Go
Fifteen fighting, determined Varsity ruggers plunged a luckless
All-Black outfit deep into the Brockton Point muck on Saturday, and
after severely smearing the North Shore uniforms, continued on their
wave of destruction to chalk up a miraculous 40-0 victory.
THUNDERBIRDS  LEAVE  BLACKS  IN  BREEZE
The Collegians on Saturday ahowed the aame uneonquerable
apirit, and faultless teamwork that carried them to championship
heights laat aeaaon.   Twaa absolutely breath-taking te watoh the
high-flying   Thunderbirda   leave   the   struggling   aoroee-the-lnlet
boys In a breeae, aoomlng over the line for tries almoat at will.
And a foreboding of the astonishing score came very shortly ln
the game, when, after seven minutes of play, Howie McPhee  sped
over for a duo of tries, Freshman Tremblay clicked for <t third, and
Captain Dave Carey converted all three to roll up the count to 15-0.
HOLD A 24-0 LEAD AT  HALF-TIME
Constant driving through the North Shore team, with pretty
teamwork, and smart Individual breaks, gave the College kids a 24-0
lead at the breather.
And the aaoond atanaa  waa the  aame aweet muslo  played
again by Alma Mater'a ruggera.    Time and again, forwarda and
threea would eemblne to  plant the pill over an  Ill-fated  North
Shore line.   After ponderoue arithmetic meaaurea were taken, the
final oount waa announced aa 4O-0, yeaelr, 40-O.
Although  everyone  of the  Blue  and  Gold  gladiators  turned  in
sparklirig  performances,   there's   still  a  couple  deserving   an   extra
boost.    Carey, Howie and Ted McPhee, Tremblay, Leggatt, Andrews
and  Mattu are the boys crashing the blue-ribbon column.

Indian Hockey man
Nose Out Collegians
Varsity's men grass hockey
team bowed once more on Saturday, but put up a stubborn battle
before yielding to the Indiana by
a  1-0 score.
Although fielding the strongest
team seen in Varaity colors thia
year, the bent stick wieldera
failed to click together and
ahowed the need of a few practices before they hit the form
they are capable of ahowing.
First call for the crosscountry men ls being sent out
by Van Vliet as the big run
is due in a few weeks time.
Dan Qua vie Scores
Lone Varsity
Tally
Faltering once more in the
stretch after being in sight of victory, the Senior roundballera dropped a hearbreaker to a lucky Fraaer
Cafe outfit at McBride Park on
Saturday.
Outclassing their opponents
throughout the first half by a
diaplay of football at tlmea brilliant, and leading at the half-
time breather by virtue of a well-
earned goal by Dan Quayle, the
students really looked due to
crash the win column. Swinging
the ball around at will ,they gave
the Sapperton lads little chance
to settle down.
SLOW STARTING IN SECOND
But with even their most pessimistic supporters figuring on victory, the Blue and Gold squad got
off to a bad start after the interval.
And after goaltender Fiorillo had
been severely sat on, kicked and
generally messed up, the Westminster butchers managed to register
two scratchy goals as a result of
corners.
INSULT TO INJURY
And then to add insult to injury,
while the Point Grey bunch strove
valiantly to tie it up, the Cafemen
acored their third scratchy goal
when a feeble header bounced off
Basil Robinson's head past the helpless goalie.
At thla stage Quayle and hia
cronlea led repeated raida on the
enemy   goal,   and   one    or    two
changes in the line-up were made.
Strongttharm came on for the Injured   Jim   Roblnaon   and   Mlzu-
hara came to centre-half, but all
to no avail.   Final score: Cafe 3,
Varsity 1.
Outstanding in a fighting, hard-
luck team were Fiorillo, Croll Rush,
Quayle and B. Robinson.

RUGBY GAME
First Victory In
Four Years
By PRANK TURNER
For four long yeara Varsity sport
fans, downtown supporters and husky Canadian football players themselves waited patiently, oh so patiently for a single, solitary gridiron viotory.
But disappointment, despair and
discouragement counteracted all
outbursts of enthusiasm as the days
rolled into weeks, the weeks into
months, and eventually into years.
■LUB  ANO QOLD TRIUMPH
And 'twasn't until Wednesday,
October 26, 1937, under Athletic
Park's rain • spattered floodlights
that the Blue and Oold plgskinners
oraahed through.
But all former blues singing
sprees vanished Into the cloudburst of that now historic eve, ss
ths British Columbia gladiators
skidded and swished to a thrilling 6*0 win over the visiting Al-
bertana with a thousand soaked
student forms going wild with ths
spine-tingling display.

AT FALL CONGREGATION
Hon, T. D. Pattullo and Chancellor Dr. R. E. McKechnie, leading
the academic procession Wednesday afternoon. In the background
can be seen some of the other distinguished guests that attended
Congregation.
"IMPRESS THE PEOPLE OF
THE UNIVERSITY'S NEED"
... DR. McKECHNIE
Large Crowds Expected to Attend
Homecoming Weekend Festivities
Premier T. D. Pattullo Received Honorary
Doctorate of Laws at Colorful
Fall Congregation
"I admit you."
Dr. R. E. McKechnie uttered this traditional phrase, and
a figure in red and purple robes arose from a blue and gold
cushion on the stand before the Chancellor's throne.
Thomas Dufferin Pattullo, Premier of British Columbia,
had been admitted into the ranks of the University of British
Columbia's honored members—those persons who by virtue
of their achievements have been awarded the degree of Doctor of Laws, Honoris Causa.
PLBA POR UNIVERSITY
Before the large assembly at the
autumn congregation, Dr. Pattullo
received his honor and thanked the
university for it—but not before he
had sat in silence, listening to an
eloquent plea for the university by
Dr.  McKechnie.
The chancellor laat little time ln
getting to the point in hla talk.
"There Is no use minimising the
fact tht the university is overcrowded," he said.
CROWOBD TO START
"We were a little crowded to
atart with when we oame out
here a deeade ago. Today, we
have nearly a thousand more at-
dents than than.
"There la a laek of both facilities and room.    Work eannot be
done efficiently and our high prestige In the aoadomle world la In
grave danger."
Dr. McKechnie told the new graduates, there were about 70 ot them,
that it was  their duty  to impress
upon the people of the province the
dire need of the university.
OUARO   PRESTIGE
"Oovernment can't do what its
support will not allow it to do," he
said.
"Don't stand  idly by," concluded
the chancellor.     "Guard  the  status
and   prestige  of your university."
The Premier spoke.
He thanked the university for the
honor conferred on him.
He said that he did not deserve
It,   that   whatever   he   had   done,
had  been  In the  line ef duty aa
he saw It.
He paid a tribute to the founders
of the university, and to those who
had carried on the work of the institution throughout difficult yeara.
SHIP OP STATE
"The ship of state Is the largest
and most difficult ship in the world.
Everybody wants to be captain," declared the man now captain of B.
C.'s state vessel.
Dr. Pattullo reiterated his thanks
to the university, and took his seat.
Prom the student-paoked gallery oame a long drawn-out "biases" that grew Into a skyrooket,
thus for the flrat time In U. B.
C.'s history breaking the traditional ealm and ceremony of a
oongregatlon.

YEOMEN OF THE GUARD
CHOSEN BY MUSICIANS
Society Returns to
Gilbert and
Sullivan
Gilbert and Sullivan will return
to the University Auditorium this
year when the Musical Society present "the Yeomen of the Guard"
as their annual operatic offering.
This opera will be the sixth of the
Savoy series which the Musical Society has produced in its career.
"Yeomen of the Guard," while
one of the best of the G.-S. operas,
Is rarely produced in Canada.
Here the composers applied their
talents to the production of a more
serious work, and the resulting
opera contains some of the finest
lyrics written by Gilbert, while Sir
Arthur Sullivan reached new
heights in orchestration.
PREMIER ACCLAIMED
The premiere of the opera at the
Savoy Theatre in London was widely acclaimed by critics.
In the past, the Musical Society
has    produced    successfully    "The
Mikado," "lolanthe," "Ruddlgore,"
"Pirates of Penzance," and "H. M.
S. Pinafore."
After a brief excursion into other
fields with "Robin Hood" last year,
they are returning to the operas
which have given them their past
successes.
CASTING  SOON
Casting will take place within
the  next  few   weeks,   under  the
direction of C. Hadyn Williams.
As yet, no forecasts can be made
as to who will  play  the stellar
roles.     Callum    Thompson    and
Willa Elliott, stars of laat year'a
production,    have    returned    to
Varaity,   while   among   the   supporting artists of "Robin Hood"
there   are   Bill   Cameron,   Doug
Ford, and Tatsuo Sanmlya.
Competition   is   expected   to   be
keen,   as   a   number  of   promising
new members reveal a probability
that  some  upsets may  amaze  the
"dopesters."
The make-up of the orchestra will
undergo considerable change, it is
expected. Priscilla Boyd will probably All the position of Concert
Master again.
Functions Under
Pass System
"This place sure is crowded."
This was the reaction of a member of the class of '88, back on the
campus yesterday in connection
with final plans for Homecoming,
which gets underway this evening.
HUNDREDS EXPECTED
"This place" will be more than
crowded tomorrow, as grads by the
hundred swarm about the campus
in celebration of Homecoming.
This evening, alumni wtll ban-
quet at Spencer's Dining Room,
then  Join  the  atudenta   at   the
Football Rally at the Palomar.
Detaila   of   other   Homecoming
fatures—the    tea    dance,    theatre
night, and the big gamea—are outlined in thia issue of the Ubyssey.
For the flrst time in several years
students will be playing a big part
in Homecoming affairs.   As hosts
to visiting grads, they will be expected to make the oldsters feel at
home and impress them with conditions on the campus today.
PASSES HONORED
Alumni will be  able to  see for
themselves that the campus is overcrowded—if  students  turn  out in
the numbers that are expected.
With passes being honored at
moat  of  the Homecoming   functions, student attendance is expected to rival that of the graduates.
Informal reunion dinners in the
Caf Saturday evening will provide
an excellent opportunity for students and grads to mix and talk
over university matters.
Everything is set for the biggest
Homecoming the campus has ever
seen, with good weather promised
and plenty of first-class attractions
on the  lengthy  program.
Ahepa   Award

THE 1938 TOTEM
Plans are now under way for the 1938 Totem, to be
brought out under the guiding genius of David Crawley,
assistant on the staff of last year's annual.
Preparations for a Totem are always intricate and difficult, and the wholehearted co-operation of members of the
senior class, club executives and others who will be called
upon to assist in many ways is desirable.
Well-laid plans for last year's book resulted in the best
one in the history of the university.
A disastrous Are at the printing shop brought about a
delay in production of the 1937 Totem that ruined sales and
made the financial statement for the book more than unbalanced.
This year, nothing can be done but to exceed in all ways
the 1937 annual. This can be done largely with the co-operation of all students concerned. Members of the staff have
every hope that the Totem for 1938 will be a book for the
university to be proud of, one that will be worthy of Canada's
young, progressive university on the shores of the Pacific.
WELCOME, GRADS
It is the "Ubyssey's" pleasure to offer the Alma Mater
Society's official welcome to the alumni returning to enjoy
Homecoming festivities this week-end.
We do not see our grads very often. In fact, it is usually
rather difficult to realize that we have a graduate body. So
it is with special emphasis that we tender greeting to today's
and tomorrow's guests.
The program for Homecoming is more extensive than
ever before. A banquet tonight, followed by the rugby rally
at the Palomar, the two big games, tea dance, banquet and
theatre night Saturday, should attract every graduate within
reach back to the campus. We hope the entertainment will
merit the interest shown.
FEED THE BIRDS
Feeding the birds is a good idea, providing the crumbs
are not placed on car roofs, and are small enough to dissolve
before next spring. If people stopped feeding the birds, the
little feathered friends would either (a) starve, or (b) go
south like the bigger and more intelligent birds. In either
case it would probably be a good thing for the lawns next
spring.
There is the school of thought, of course, that holds that
feeding the birds is beneath college students, not to mention
editorials in college papers. All the same it is a good thing.
Feeding the birds makes you feel like a new man, full of
chivalry and ideals and nobility, the way a Simone Simon picture leaves us.   And that is something.
Another good thing about feeding the birds is that it is
good for the birds.
CORRESPONDENCE
TO  BEGGAR  STUDENT
Editor, Ubyssey.
Sir:
I beg to submit the following
tacts for the information ot your
Beggar Student.
1. The plays presented by the
Players' Club are not chosen by the
Executive Committee, but by the
Advisory Board. We know only too
well how many considerations have
to be taken into account ln choosing plays; and we have every confidence that the Board does the best
that can be done with the plays
and  the  players  available.
2. The Christmas performance
is private, not public. The object
of this performance is now, as lt
has always been, to try out the talents ot the newcomers to the Club.
The plays are chosen primarily
with that object ln view.
3. The students of the University have never paid our bills. The
Christmas plays have always been
free to students and their friends,
and the bills bave always been paid
out of the Players' Club budget.
Since its founding the Club has
contributed thousands of dollars to
the Alma Mater Society funds; and
the greater part of this money has
come not from the students but
from  the outside  public.
I should like to take issue also
with the statement attributed by
you to Mr. Munro that the Film
Society is the only campus organization which last year paid its way.
This statement ls untrue. The
Players' Club not only paid its way
but turred over a credit balance to
the Alma Mater Society, together
with certain scenery, costumes and
stage equipment, all of which were
fully  paid for.
Yours truly,
PAT LARSEN,
President, Players' Club.
•.M.U.S.
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Campus Winchell:
Here's an announcement which
might provide interesting reading
for those members of the faculty
of Arts and Science who have de-
veloped.because of the continual
successful Science functions, what
ls known as a faculty inferiority
complex.
PLASH) 11
That great class of Science '40
has hit an all-time high in University spirit.' On Wednesday, 96 Sciencemen, stirred to great heights
by public-spirited Professor Gage,
purchased seven (7) "football-cane
banners," indicating Science's great
interest in Intercollegiate activities. (Needless to say lt was almost necessary to publicly shame
each purchaser ln handing over the
required thin dime.)
It is a disheartening thought to
realize that our Intercollegiate series ts not to receive tbe support of
Science '40 just because the series
is not to be sponsored by the Scl-
enceman's tin god — Smus. Let's
hope that ln the near future some
one will be able to turn that flow
of self-centred Science spirit into
the proper channels where It will
best benefit the University.
A disheartened and not very
hopeful Scienceman.
SWING  BAND
Meeting of musician. Interested
in the proposed Varsity swing band
meet in Arts 108 today noon. Everyone interested ln singing, arranging, or playing, ia advised to be
present at this Important organization  meeting.
LOST
Reynolds' Elementary Mechanics,
in Applied Science 204. Finder
please return to Mr. Home's offlce.
A/IR. 3. MEREDITH TUTT, one of
the more promising lights among
the rising generation ot writers of
letters to the editor, has honored
us with one of his immortal epistles. It so tickled our fancy that
we are having It printed ln toto
along with this column.
Mr. Tutt objects to our insinuation that it was radio columnist
Jack Scott of the News-Herald who
won the recent bout with Province's radio writer (?) "Stardust."
Mr. Tutt Insists that he did It all
alone with one letter to the editor.
Now we have a great respect for
the Tutt family, having served under young J. Meredith's father with
the Ninths at Poona. The late Colonel Tutt was a good offlcor, a fine
gentleman, and the best pig-sticker
on the frontier, although only a
Sandhurst man.
At the same time we are disappointed in young Tutt's un-Britlsh
attitude in wanting all the glory
for downing Stardust. Mind you,
the boy was good. He engaged the
enemy without hesitation, and was
right ln at the kill. But we still
Insist lt was Scott's reinforcements
that carried  the day.
CONFIDENTIALLY
TT was Mr. Scott who scored the
*■ flrst direct hit with the sugestton
that Stardust must be related to
the owners of his paper to have his
stuff printed. He ls. (The gentleman's name will be sent on receipt
of self-addressed stamped envelope.)
J. Meredith Tutt, on the other
hand, missed the mark with his
charge that Stardust must be a woman to write such spinsterly drivel.
We thought so too, but we are Informed that, technically speaking
at least, Stardust Is male, if not
masculine.
The really disappointing part
about it all, however, is that Stardust really wasn't squashed at all
by anybody, and is right back In
there fighting again. We suggest
you have another go at it, J. Meredith, and this time annihilate the
beggar utterly. Because the flrst
thing we know Stardust will be the
most widely read column in the village,   thnnks   to   us   all.

TN Case we misled you last week
by misspelling "Vieni, vieni," we

comes "Palm trees are gently

Your Royal Highness:
During a course of your Random

you outrambled yourself completely.
What tn the name of Hirohito (Descendant of the Sun and Mortgagee

Mr. Jack Scott had to do with the
slight verbal tussle between Mr. J.
Meredith Tutt and "Stardust" of
the Province? Yo'u may find Just as
much trouble in filling your column
as "Stardust" does, but for the love
of the Rev. Mr. Jardlne, don't sink
to filling it up with bad guesses
like that. We Tutts have suffered
some pretty gross Insults in our
time, but never before have we
been confused wtth Mr. Jack Scott.
Mr. Jack Scott may be everything
you wish as a radio editor, but that
doesn't mean he can dust, off "Stardust" with any kind ot justice, let
alone skill.
If you tell people I am Jack Scott,
I shall tell them that you are Reginald Jessup (with his summer
smell of a well-kept woman, if I remember his deathless verse); I
shall also tell them that you are
James A. Gibson, Leonard S. Kllnck,
Chief Jimmy-Jimmy, Dr. Lyle Telford, Dr. Clem Davies, and the
President of the Varsity Christian

be.
Perhaps you aro really Jack

God help you, my poor wee lamb.
Here are a few more startling

A feud of several years' standing
was renewed last week whan Meds.
and Science indulged in a free-for-
all scramble for banners at the rugby game between these two faculties at the Osborne Stadium.
While the players were still in
their dressing rooms preparing for
the game, a group of Medicals carrying a banner with the skull and
crossbones marched to the east side
of the field and dared anyone to
take it away from them. The response was instantaneous as a mob
of over a hundred Scientists took
up the chalenge and rushed them.
As the fighting started, reinforcements to both sides began streaming across the field until over 400
students were taking part in the
pushing and milling around the
banner.

It has come to our ears that there

students concerning the choice of
announcer for the dally noon-hour
broadcast of agricultural
market nejvs and market reports

seems to be that an Artsman was
chosen ta prepare and read the
five-minute script. Without entering Into any controversy or discussing personalities, we And ln this Incident opportunity for comment.
All Aggies, and most other students, have heard what we are
pleased to call Dean Clement's "entrepreneur" speech, which leads very
dramatically to the conclusion that
young men and women of today
must seek out opportunity and create jobs for themselves. It ls not
sufficient for a man to query of
himself or others, "Why was this
job not given to me?", for the
answer   lies  within  that  man.
To be more specific, a man with
all the necessary qualifications for
radio work ln this connection —
namely: ability to compile material,
write, and r**d scripts—got the job.
And he got that job because he
went after lt. The fact that he was
the one chosen does not necessarily
mean that he was the only qualified
person, but ■ lt does most acutely
Illustrate that quiescent qualifications do not bring fruit unless their
possessor knows what he wants and
goes after lt.
Apparently, Aggies have not yet
learned the lesson to be found in
their Dean's so famous address. Joe
has heard that speech  11 times.

Why, O tell me why, must all that

agricultural     of   budding    amazons
want to arch ln the
afternoon sun, but Joe likes his
women feminine, and respectfully
suggests that if they wish to exercise, let them do push-ups or play
hopscotch ln the gym, and leave
the wide open spaces for the gratification of Joe's aesthetic  soul.
Dr. L. C. Penderlelth, director of
education at Nanaimo, outlined the
ipodern system of consolidating
municipal school districts into larger units for more efficient administration to a combined
discussion meeting of the Agrtcul-
club meets tural Discussion Club
with teacher training
students recently. The new order
has been operating for some time
ln the Peace River, and at present
is in an experimental stage in the
Abbotsford-Sumas-Matsqul district.
Dr. Penderlelth described an unusual situation which obtained ln
one of the smaller Peace River
school districts before the institution of the newer administrative
system. The trustee's brother held
contracts for wood and water, the
latter stored in the form of ice; his
son was the school janitor; his wife
did special cleaning work twice a
year—all positions carylng handsome salaries. Almost exorbitant
honoraria, so to speak.
The provincial government consolidated this district with several
other similar ones, and is now providing, ln addition to Increased
academic facilities, a travelling
health service which Includes medical, dental and nursing accommodation—at^a less cost for the whole
area than the dynastic offerings of
the previous era, according to Dr.
Penderlelth.
It is most significant—as Professor Butterfleld would say—to note
the trend toward efficiency ln government. Joe desires to express a
fervent hope that our legislators
may not confine their reforms to
the organization of the primary and
secondary schools of the province.

Meet Rain
Since Arrival
By FRANK PERRY
With well-moulded impressions of
U.B.C. life and phenomena, 26
hardy collegians from Aberhartania
are making a concerted invasion of
the Point Orey campus this week.
When the Alberta footballers arrived Monday they were greeted by
a downpour of rain and fraternity
men, who whisked them off to dry
and comfortable quarters.
COULDN'T SEE
The rain, which dampened their
enthusiasm for B.C. and everything
British Columbian, was the only
disappointing feature of the sojourn.
When one of the visitors was
asked yesterday what his initial impression of Vancouver was upon
arrival at the station, he replied
that he didn't get any impression
at all, since he couldn't even aee
the place.
Rated by one Albertan who has

myself and all the rest of the boys,"
declared Jack, in speaking on behalf of the team.
There is no overcrowding on the

'TOBA HONORS
MEMBER OF
KING CABINET
WINNIPEG, Oct. 29 (WIPU) —
In an address to students of the
University of Manitoba on the occasion of their annual "University
Day," Hon. Norman Rogers, Minister
of Labor In the Dominion cabinet,
stated that "lt may well be the supreme task ot our generation to discover a formula which will reconcile individual liberty and social
security."
Using the origin, development,
and   problems  confronting  democratic oountrles for a theme, Mr.
Rogers  discussed   several   anglea
of the situation  In their relation
to  Canadian  political  life.
In his discussion of present political trends he affirmed  that,  "We
must now decide whether the Ideas
of political freedom and individual
responsibility    are    still    valid    or
whether  they must be  rejected or
modified to meet the conditions of
our  own   time.     My  own   belief  is
that  nothing  has  happened  ln  our
political   experience   which   should
shake our belief ln freedom as the
essential element In our system of
government."
Towards the end ot his address,
the minister > referred briefly to
Buropean conditions, saying that,
"since the World War new forms
of the state have arisen which have
Bought to attack democracy and to
Justify themselves by their claim
that they afford a greater degree
of security for their members.
"They have tried to achieve this
security, as you know, by the suppression of liberty and a complete
subordination of the individual to
the  state."

by
"Van" Pbrry
After quite an absence from the
sidelines, we take pleasure in bringing our one reader the dope, auch
aa it ia, on practically anything.
Take for example the mud-slinging engaged in by the boys laat
Wednesday night. It only goes to
show what support and decent
weather conditiona will do for a
team. On their flrst showing we
were much impressed by the field
tactics of Maury'a gridders, but
considerably depressed by their
fumbles. But that last scrap shows
just what the lada need—a little
encouragement. They were figuring
on an Alberta passing attack, and
when Jupe P. cancelled the airmail

losing streak.

John Pearson tells us "we've got

stay that way." And the general

Johnny   Pearson   outbooted    the
best efforts ot the Alberta kickers
by many yards on the night game,
but the Bears had trouble handling
the greasy ball and should do better ln  the big homecoming  battle
on Saturday if the field ls less like
a bog than the  Athletic Park was
on Wednesday.    The usually deadly
passing   attack  of   the   Bears   was
also badly out of focus in the mud
and   the   best   effort  of   the   game
was a toss for a net gain of three
yards.
Although both lineups are bruised
and battered from the second
battle, full teams are expected to go
into the third game without a long
sick list. This is the rubber game
and the long-standing argument of
the Bears and the 'Birds will be
aettled for the season at what promises to be the best classic of the
local grid schedule.

With three losses and no wina—

time  haa  come to  register n win.
Although they have been coming cloaer and closer to winning
a game every week, the soccermen  have not  come up  yet  to
the atandard the experta predict-,
ed at the atart of the aeaaon. But
apart from the fact thta they will
naurally   be   shooting   for   their
first win In four starts, there ia
one  particular  Incentive  to  victory   thla   Saturday.   And,   yea,
you've guessed It, it'a becauae the
gridders have at last craahed the
win column.   The Blue and Gold
soccer aquad feels that It just has
to carry on the good work and
add something to the cause for
celebration  around  Homecoming
time.

This week Abbotsford will provide the opposition, and the men
from the country will have to put

It will all atart at 3 o'clock at

Junior Footballers*
Tangle With Trojans
This Saturday the two hitherto
undefeated, untied Junior Canadian
teams meet, when the Thunderbirds trot out on the field against
the Trojans.
Varsity will find the Trojans a
smooth, powerful team rated as the
best blocking squad in the city, Big
4 teams Included. The spearhead
of their attack is that bruising
halfback Muirhead. Varsity has no
stars, but there are seven blocks
of granite in their line. • A strong
running attack coupled with deception has been their keynote to date.
Their running and aerial attacks
have been especially creditable ln
their showing against the Seniors
ln the last few practices.
Varsity Coach Freddy Bolton predicts a tough scrap with the Trojans but figures another victory is
ln the books for the Gold and Blue
squad. The Junior game starts at
1.16 on the upper field and will be
over ln time for the Varsity-Occasional Rugger Game at the Stadium
at 2.30.

Wln6-0
Varsity's dream of a winning grid
team came true in the muck and
rain of Athletic Park Wednesday
night when the fighting Thunderbirds threw off a four-year Jinx to
trounce the visiting Golden Beara
to the tune of 6-0.
VARSITY SHOWS ADVANTAGE
Although the Held was better
aulted to swimming than football,
both   teama   fought  to  the   laat
whistle in a battle of two evenly
matched squads.   The B. C. lada
seemed to get around  better In
the  mud  and   showed   a definite
advantage in ball  handling  and
kicking.
Both teams opened the first canto
cautiously, with  Pete Rule  reeling
off some long gains for Alberta and
Aubrey Grey picking up two first
downs for Varsity.  The Beara harried the Thunderbird goal line, but
long   punting   by   Johnny   Pearson
prevented a score.
BOE PAVES WAY
Veteran Barney Boe paved the
way for the only major of the
game when he picked off ■ bad
Alberta kick and ran the ball to
the 15-yard line. Two quick
plunges carried It to the one-yard
atripe from where big Jim Harmer plunged over the pay line.
Tommy Wllliama made no mis-
take about converting for the
extra point.
From then on Van Vliet'a men
played smart ball to keep the rag-

polnt advantage over their nearest
rivals, the Aggies.
MoCOMBER AGAIN
In the first two slots It waa the
old atery of MeComber flrat and
Pendray aecond. Theae two atara
of the Varaity track team aet the
pace all the way to easily cop the
favored positions.
Plodding Wilf Pendray accounted
for most of the Aggie points, as he
led them to second place in the
standings with 38 markers, closely
followed by the final year Science-
men with 33. Arts '38, Science '40,
and Science '41 finished ln that order behind the leaders, with 27, 16,
and 8 points respectively.
ing Beara well subdued. Only one
pass waa completed for a short
gain by Alberta, but the greasy
ball made any kind of toasing almost impossible.
Sweeping end plays were the
feature of the visitors' attack and
on a dry field thia might cauae the
Varaity squad aome worry. But the
boys of the Blue and Gold Anally
showed that they can get in there
and flght from now on they will be
hard to beat.
