Commencing a series of interesting
lectures by various noted artists and
art-lovers In Vancouver, Mr. C. A.
Scott, director of the Vancouver
School of Applied and Decorative
Arts, addressed the members of the
University Arts Club at a meeting bl
the Art Gallery on Monday' night,
November 2.
Mr. Scott's address took the form
of a "rambling lecture." To a rapt
audience he outlined the history of
British art from the beginning until
the present day. Before the seventeenth century there were practically no English artiste; men like Holbein had been imported for the benefit of the court and their attention
was confined almost entirely to portrait painting. One of the earliest
British oil painters was Wm. Dobson. While these early attempts were
not on a great spiritual plane, yet
many of them wire undoubtedly
fine work. Throughout his lecture
Mr. Scott stressed the idea that "The
thing that really matters is not tho
actual colour painting or technique
but the spiritual quality the artist
is trying to put over." Thus he said
of Epstein's bronze "La Bohemi-
enne," which has been so much discussed lately that it was alive,
breathing a vital message which It
was for us to appreciate.
Several schools of art are repre-

If British Columbiana are to
work, British Columbia must develop
her business, her commerce and her
industries; and towards tha establishment, maintenance, and development
of these the university stands ready
to contribute every facility, whether
personal or material, which is placed
at its disposal."
to said President Klinck, presenting his "Idea bf a University" to tha
Canadian Club en Tuesday night.
Dr. Xlinck quoted Abraham Flax-
ner'a recent books on Universities,
American, Bhgllsh and German, only
to disagree with tha opinions stated
therein, which charged several American universities with not possess
inj "unity of purpose or homogeneity, of expression."    '
•It may be that Canadian and United States universities are ia some
danger of shifting their emphasis
from the humanities, from the pure
sclerose, and from long-established
and generally-recognised protections
of medicine and law. It may be, I
repeat, that they are in some danger
of falling adequately to support these
established disciplines and cf giving
undue prominence  to  the  applied
sctenete,' to purely teehnologto-
studiee and even to utilitarian subjects osnoslved as ancillary to bus-
ess, to commerce er to industry.
But I do not believe this condition
is general.
•riven these universities which deservedly ate heh) in highest esteem
among us," he continued, "cannot
give full effect to all the good sua-
gaatione which are offered, because
of the fact that even the most independent and eaehtsivc of them are
embedments ef public habits, ai
reflect all the virtues and vices of
the body politic. No Institution #
higher learning can ever be whooly
immune from atmospheric pressure."
'•Contact of mind with mind" was
hold to be thc primary object of the
professor In dealing with his stud-
snts; "to inspire tha student to train
himself, with enthusiasm, in habits
of accurate and sustained thinking
so that he, a scholar in thia generation, may fittingly become a master
of tha next."
Thc aim of the students Dr. Klinck,
declared, should bo tha developing
of intellactuai initatlve and Independent workmanship, and "the cultivation of that rarest and finest of
qualities, intellectual Integrity."
Me emphasised the fact that British Columbia's business, commote!*!
and industrial life op the one hand,
and its university faeffltiea en the
other, can and should complement
and supplement each other for the
benefit' of the oommonwcal.

Of Forum
These present at the Thursday
neon hour recital of the Musical Society heard one et the finest programs given at tho University for
seme time. The artists, Miss Isobel
Ckulshorc, Miss Isabel Campbell, and
Miss Vera Inge, arc all well known
la the Vancouver musical world.
Miss Oartshore's first number was
the aria "Now Joan Ardently," from
"La Mert da Jeanne d'Arc," by O.
Bemburg. In this number aha displayed excellent technical knowledge,
a great regard for phrasing, and a
clarity of diction which la extremely
rare. On hef second appearance she
gave a group of three songs— ••Psyche," by Paladlhle; "Serenade," by
Poldowski (both of which were ia

It was recalled however, that
last year, after the sign had made
one of its periodical disappearances
and been recovered, it was said that
the next time this happened, tiie Library would be closed from the time
the loss was known until return was
made of the famed relic.
The desperate Council, feeling that
the afair reflected no credit on the
student body, did strenuous detective

they found, were far and few between. Many poeribultiee were hurriedly discussed, Could seme wan-'

the government customed a stinging
defeat on Tuesday night In Arts 100.
Tha bill "Reeolved: that this House
would rather be cremated than buried," was upheld in fiery terms by
Sid Semple, the Premier, who waxed
hot on tiie manifold iniquities of
burial and denounced In burning
terms even the principles of Inhumation. He was ably supported by
Mr. Macdougall, Miss Lehman and
Mr. Lando. Their rhetorical outbursts were fruitless, however, for
the opposition, burnt up by tiie
withering sarcasm of the government
members and feeling that their causa
was resolving Into ashes attacked
spiritedly and the government benches were buried under an avalanche
of quotations, epitaphs, epigrams and
Feeling ran high and the air was
rent by remarks juch as, "Why elide twice?" and, "Mr. Speaker Will
ybu please correct that man?" Two
wildly gesticulating orators advanced
menancwgly towards each other but
ware called to order by the Speaker.
There followed a momentary lull ln
the debate and then the opposition
leader,' Mr. Shaneman, summed up
his party's case. "We are here," he
said, "to get Justice (applause).
Prom the dawn of history man has
Insisted on returning to the duet
from whence he came (cheers and
laughter). Are we to allow this
house to deprive us of our sacred
liberties? (cries of no, no, and boos
from tiie government benches). Then
I ask you,' gentlemen, nay, I command you (cries of 'oh yeah' from
the government) to defeat this nefarious scheme."
He was followed by the Premier
who indignantly asked the opposition leader if he would care to be
resurrected as spinach and rhubarb.
"We are here," Mr. Semple continued, "to uphold the cause of democracy, we are here to see to it that
our children will not come into a
world of tombstone*, in short, gentlemen, we are here to uphold the
cause of posterity and I trust and
hope that this house will support, the
bill"   (thunderous applause).
"I will now call for a division,"
said the Speaker. There was a brief
shuffling of feet and then a deathly
silence. The Sneaker's voice came
through the smoke, "I hereby declare
the government defeated.    Quite."
The dignified scene was converted
into a bedlam. A woman's scream
sounded shrilly above the prolonged
cheers. Order papers and hats were
hurled Into the air and the opposition leader executed a hornpipe on
his desk. The first meeting of the
Parliamentary Porum was over.
The next Forum will be held on
Tuesday evening, November 17, ln
Arts IOC at 7:30 p.m. The subject
will be, "Resolved: that this house
believes that the nations of the
world should adopt a policy of Com.
plete Disarmament except for a Police force under International Control."
One of the most Interesting meetings of the season was held last Mop.
evening, November 8, at the home
of E. V7, Ketnleyslde, Esq. "Dr. John
McLaughlin and Sir Jamee Douglas"
was the topic of the paper read by
Mary Wallace.
Mies Wallace began with a resume
of the Hudson's Bay Company's activities around Fort Vancouver at
the time when McLaughlin waa ruler of the Columbia District, and
Douglas his assistant.
"The early history of the coast is
largely wrlten in the lives of these
two men," Miss Wallace asserted,
and proceeded to outline thc various
lases of their careers. John McLaughlin was a Canadian, and James
Douglas a Scot, but both entered the
eervlece of the North West Company.
Both men opposed thc union with
the Hudeone Bay Company, but remained in the services of the amalgamated companies. McLaughlin
waa chosen head of the Western Da-
by F. Bridge. In these Miss Gait
shore won the audience by her versatility and pleasing personality. Her
interpretation waa artistic and tiie
solos were presented with excellent
control and smoothness of tone. Miss
Isabel Campbell proved a skilful and
sympathetic accompanist who deserves great praise for her performance.
An unusual feature was the presentation of four movements from
Rachmaninoffs "Second Suite for
Two Pianos"-Alla Marcla, Valse,
Romance and Tarantella. These gave
the artists, Miss Vera Ings and Miss
Isabel Campbell, wide scope to display their exceptional musical ability. The numbers were played with
a fine attention to rhythm and detail. In "Romance," the shading and
variation of tone was especially noteworthy. The last movement, "Tarantella," waa presented with masterful precision and brilliant interpretation which made an irresistable appeal.
During the program, Bob Brooks,
president of tiki Society, apologized
publicly to the artists for tiie fact
that the Society had been unable to
secure two grand pianos for the
the attendance was greatly improved at this recital, and the audience listened attentively and with
evident pleasure. However, the program waa marred by people arriving
between numbers, and also by many
leaving during the performance. The
noise in the hall, which was commented upon by the artiste waa very
disturbing and made it impossible
for them to do their best work.

assistant, Douglas.
Both men wore of powerful physique, McLaughlin Inspiring love and
admiration, Douglas- evoking confidence and respect. Douglas was muck
influenced by Mclaughlin during hla
period of asslstantshlp. Both men
were great disciplinarians, McLaughlin the kindly autocrat "tempered
hie rule with kindness, but Douglas,
the typical Hudson's Bay man, ruled
justly but coldly.
In dealing with the Indiana both
man were particularly successful and
their attitude towards the missionaries waa kindly.
Regarding tiie problem of Immigration, neither were so successful.
McLsughlln helped the new colonists
Irrespective of nationality, and was
forced to resign because of bis attitude. Douglas was intensely British, but failed in his attempt to keep
the country British.
"In spite ef mistakes, each was a
great man, and should be Judged by
his achievements." McLaughlin was
thc Father of Oregon, and Douglas
the Father of British Columbia.
Following McLaughlin's resignation
Douglas took charge of affaire and
became governor of Vancouver Island In Ml, and severed his connection with the Company and became governor of British Columbia
In 1888.
The last years of tho two men are
a contrast. McUughlin lived in
lonely sorrow, poverty, and humiliation, while Douglas lived as became

The Genoa and Brussels conference
of 1920 and '22 made clear the necessity for an immediate return to gold,
thus stabilizing world finance and
facilitating international trade. This
was done by all nations, but Britain
was the only one that returned to
her pre-war standard, the other all
falling below It. Under the altered
conditions many countries maintained
their currencies on the strength of
foreign credits held chiefly in London. This was a new feature of the

about still greater insecurity and in

lty which made Ellen Terry the meet
beloved actress of her generation was
revealed in a paper given by Eleanor
Klllam at the, Literary Forum meeting, Tuesday in Arts 100.
Taking Ellen Terry's book,, "The
Story of My Life," as the basis of
her talk, Miss Killam outlined the
colorful life of this great actress and
traced the development of her art.
At the age of eight, she made her
first appearance on the stage in 'The
Winter's Tale,' at the Princess Theatre ln London. Her inherited dramatic ability and clear articulation
won her tiie role of the boy Mamil-
ius. Two years later aha played'
Prince Arthur in 'King John,' and
won high praise.
Miss Klllam than told of her ad-
venturec when aha left the Princess
Theatre and want on the road. She
told of the childish vanity which
soon disappeared as she became enthralled by her work, which demanded Imagination, Industry and
intelligence. A vivid description In
Ulan Terry's own words told of thc
miseries of stage fright.
The dawning of artistic appreciation
came when, •through tiie Influence of
a family whose acquaintance they
made, she was having her eyee opened to beautiful things in art and literature." The child was mastering
her art throughout this period. At
the early age of sixteen she married
an artist, there waa great disparity
between their ages and the marriage
waa dissolved.
Ellen returned to the stage and resumed her work. She played with
Henry Irving for the first time on
December, 1867, In "The Taming of
the Shrew."
After retiring to the country for
six years she returned to the stage
and her first re-appearance was a
tremendous success. When she was
offered the part of Portia in "The
Merchant of Venice," 1875, she accepted joyfully. Mrs. Kendal, a rival of hers later acted with her in
the "Merry Wives of Windsor."
From this time on she was associated with Henry Irving. She played
Ophelia with him In 1878. This was
the period of greatest activity in her
career. They toured Germany with
"Faust." This was followed by tours
in America where they were welcomed with enthusiasm.
Honour came to her at the close
of her career. In 1922 she was granted the honorary degree of L. L. D.
at St. Andrews and in 1925 she received the Grand Cross of the Order
of the British Empire.
In conclusion, Miss Killam quoted
Sir Johnston Forbes Robertson who
said of Ellen Terry, "Everything she
did was Invested with great charm,

The promoters cf the project declared the Col-dex advertising is different In that It remains under the
eye of the student for a longer ttaw
than Ubyssey advertising. They aba
claim to have aided the Ubyesey in

The Manitoban w»» right. Labor suffered

example, according to a local daily's London

anger against the blunders of Socialist leadership, and utterly shattered Labor. It

this isschjtog to the widest range of students;
to mould and shape them, not merely by the
trsihing of tht intellect, but by the discipline
d Spirit, so that wherever they go, they may
ha worthy oitixena or worthy servants of the
State; and to extend by original enquiry the
frontiers o! learning."
, According to Cardinal Newman: "It aims
at raising tha intellectual tone ot society, at
cultivating tha public .mind, at purifying tha
national taste, at supplying true principles to
popular enthusiasm and fixed aims to popular
aspirations, at giving enlargement and sobriety
-to th* ideas of tha age, at facilitating tha ex-
erc-e of political power and refining tha inter*
course of private life."
These definitions should make any student
who reads them feel rather humble. They
should also make him feel rather uplifted, as
Should Dr. Klinck's statement of the aims of
As to the fourfold duties which Lord Cur-
zon imposes: the first two are entirely out
of the* dominion of the undergraduate body,
tha second two partly so, They should be the
ideals of the government which supports the
university, and the faculty which, it selects
to instruct thereat. How stands "the case for
limitation" here?
Cardinal Newman's statement puts just
as much of the onus on the students as on the
faculty, however. The question is, how many
Students are there who have the intellectual
and intestinal, stamina to live up to those
high standards?
Says President Klinck: "They (the students) must above all cultivate that rarest and
finest of qualities, intellectual integrity." An
opportunity Is given to cultivate what is admittedly the rarest and finest of qualities—
'""yet hoW many take advantage of it. Undergraduates here are too much involved in trying
to get out of the place with the absolute minimum of culture possible. Our hope, as always,
lies with the few who have "the gift to see

is, of course, utter nonsense.
Shaw declares Jhst the country Was fright,
ened out of its wits, and that the election was
a stampede. Undoubtedly this is true in a
large measure—witness the defeat of Henderson, a truly outstanding statesman, by a Rear-
Admiral who made anything but an intelligent appeal and now asserts that his constituency hag been true to the flag, as though his
opponent were a traitor.
Briefly, then, we have heard much boloney
about the election. The same paper that
printed the report mentioned above later had
a sensible editorial disclosing that Labor
polled 7,000,000 votes, losing only 1,500,000 of
its 1929 supporters. The Conservatives polled
over 11,000,000 (note the proportion of party
seats to size of party votes), and gained 3,000,-
000, mostly at Liberal expense.
It is probable that the Socialist party will
make a triumphant come-back in the not distant future.

Not being impressed with ^ihe Parliamentary Forum's first subject—'Resolved that this
house prefers cremation to burial'—I was prepared to make a crack to the ef-
A Rebirth feet mat tiie house be expeditiously disposed of, in the manner
of its preference, by Council or by the action
of. an outraged student body.
However, I now think that debating is,'
being reborn and that the Forum should be
given every encouragement to live. With an
attendance of over fifty, divided into government and opposition, parliament went thorn
oughly into the whole question of cremation.
The jHonorable Professor Day, Speaker, waa
often obliged to call for order as passions rose
under the charm of eloquence or the sting
of retaliation. Many students contributed to
the controversy, moat of them showing great
promise aa debaters. Two of the speakers
were co-eds. Rt-Hon. Sid Semple, government leader, made a stirring final plea, but
several of us deserted to the opposition, and
his party lost by three votes. For myself, neither cremation nor burial appeal to me. You
should have heard the wealth of detailed information that was brought out!
The next session will debate on a resolution that there should be complete disarmament, except for an international police force.
This will be a very interesting meeting and it
will be worth every one's while to attend.
Party leaders had better arrange to have the
Auditorium available.

who wished their names left out, who were
unable to attend the party for various reasons,
found that they were indubitably if inconveniently in. Those who had dutifully paid
their fees in order to participate in the joyous
event, discovered that their delinquent fellows
had been treated in exactly the same way as
themselves. Was this instance of virtue rewarded, or was it gross injustice? Undoubtedly, the latter.
Verily, the management of class draws
needs all the skill of Erebus.
"These be par'lous times," and the reigns
of terror known as "class draws" descend upon j
the undergraduate body at frequent intervals.
Though there is invariably much outcry,
and more than a little invective cast at these
pernicious institutions, the majority seem to
take them.in the accepted spirit, and really
enjoy the informality which should predominate class and inter-class functions. Being
made the butts of uproarious humor seems to
worry the hardy participants not a whit, and
class parties are generally carried on in the
same cheerful fashion.
At a recent draw, however, there seemed
to be evidences of somewhat awkward mismanagement'
It was announced far and wide that those
who did not pay their fees would be automatically disqualified for the draw. So far, so
good. Those who were anxious to be "in on"
everything paid up cheerfully. Some few who
could not attend deferred payment, seeing in
that act a convenient way to avoid the bother
of explaining their inability to attend to prospective partners.
At the draw, however, every member of
the class found his (or her) name had been
left in and assigned.
This provoked a twofold irritation.   Those

"Prophet Daniel's Message for the
Students of To-day," was the topic
chpsen by Dr. Esler of Robertson
Presbyterian church when he addressed the V.C.U. on Wednesday. His
most interesting talk waa baaed on the
life of tiie prophet Daniel and the reason this man became as famous as he
did although a foreigner In a strange
dace. There were two reasons. First
he had the talent and physical and
mental ability. Secondly, and the
main reason of all, he had the spirit
of the Lord with him. This last point
Dr. Esler stressed and went on to
emphasise how it applies to university students to-day In their relation
to later life. With the knowledge
gained at college, and with the spirit
of God within, the life of a person
is sure to be of great influence in
future days. The fact of Daniel's
life may also be held as a challenge
to Christian men and women' to stand
up for Christ although'beset on all
sides by evils and temptations.

The wide range of subject matter

It was instructive to compare the
theories and styles of the different
schools—the Pre-Raphaelltes, those
rebels determined to go back to nature, and the French Impressionists
on the one hand, the Glasgow school
on the other. "It is with great interest that we note that Britain was

At the Strand Theatre commencing
today, the people of Vancouver will
have an opportunity of seeing one
of the greatest college pictures ever
made, "The Spirit ot Notre Dame."
Dedicated to the memory of a great
coach, Knute Rockne, and depicting
the inside story of a great team, Notre Dame, the production is a faithful portrayal of University life on this
The film brings to the screen for
the first time, the fighting spirit that
has made intercollegiate contests
outstanding in the sporting world of
today. It gives some Idea of the pathos and sadness that lurkes behind
the outer curtain in athletics. Above
all it Is not a glorified account of
the degenerate side ot college life
that has been emphasized in other
talking pictures.
Unlike the great majority of modern screen plays, "The Spirit of Notre Dame" has no love theme, and
the story Is centred entirely around
Rockne and his mighty football team.
It is an education in Itself, so far as
American football is concerned and
to the spectator and player alike it

Dear Sirs:
It is unnecessary to Introduce myself as I am no longer a member
of your fair institution. Perhaps I
am therefore no longer deserving of
At the first of the year I left
books, In first class condition, to be
sold by the Book Exchange. Today
I was the grateful recipient of a
cheque for six dollars,* about one-
fifth ot their original value. Of
course it would be a great comfort,
and doubtless in years to come, it
will be a comfort, to feel that not
only did my Alm« Mater reap a
generous commission but that I
helped some worthy striver after
learning by providing him with good'
books at a reasonable (?) price. The
fact that lack of funds compelled me
to interrupt my own course has no
direct bearing on tiie case. It Is,
however, an interesting sidelight.
I know from subsequent inquiries
that With a minimum of effort I
could have sold these books for
prices ranging upwards from fifteen
It is unthinkable that thc Students*
Council should harbor moronic tendencies, but if they, arc blameless,
shall wo lay this too at the door of
the depression? Certainly it ia a
buyers' market la the reflection on
the manager of thc Exchange? Oh,
dear, no, for the manager le an honourable man. So are they all, all
honourable men. Ah, my dear Watson, we must search tor a man with a
perverted sense of values. Find him,
and you have the culprit Possibly a
stringent course in Economics would
elevate him to the stage where he
could safely sell rugby tickets. He
might even become Henderson's right-
hand man.
But God help him If his name leaks
out. Surely it la In the interests of
tiie Book Exchange to get a reasonable
price for books. Are they not deducting a "small" commission? From the
appearance of my cheque, I believe
that the entire Students' Council deducted a commission, man bv man,
women exempted (assumed normal).
Perhaps it was even tossed around tiie
campus for a few days.
Of course, I am not dissatisfied. Far
from it. I am so well satisfied that I
shall take the keenest delight in giving this invaluable organization all
the advertising in my power. I trust
that the future competition of this
department will not any way hamper
the Book Store. If the students stand
for any more of this, they deserve It.
I would like to point out that books
with such a low resale value are far
more valuable to the original buyer
than the money received for them. I
are not conversant with the cost to
the buyer, but If he gets them extremely low, does the University as a
whole benefit? No! The buyer saves
money the first year and loses the
second year. The seller loses all the
time. The Students' Council loses
commissions, assuming the work to be
honestly conducted. Of what value
then is the Book Exchange?
If you have act yourself sold books

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The epithets you used in Tuesday's editorial in reference to those
who had withdrawn caution money,
were all too mild. 1 shall never forget the feelings which assailed me
when I walked Into the Administration Building on day about a month
ago, and saw a line up of students
waiting for caution money. It was
terrible discouragement, with a sense
of Insidious betrayal, such a sensation, I imagine as animates the
breast of a broody hen when, returning to her nest after a hastily
snatched meal, she finds a grisly rat
departing with the last of her precious eggs. In this case the nest Is
the Stadium Fund; the eggs are units of caution money; while the hen
represents that spirit of Alma Mater
which la supposed to permeate every
student of our University.
My faith was shaken again when
I discovered, a little later, that almost every one of my Intimate acquaintances had been "too broke" to
leave their caution money in the
Fund. In most cases, however, it
was lack of serious thought rather
than of shekels, which prompted
students to withdraw their money.
Thoughtlessness is a terrible word to
apply to University students, but
dishonesty is worse. And you, dear
editor, In your last editorial pointed
out so clearly the moral obligations
implied, that I will not attempt to
reiterate them here. Let those who
acted hastily reconsider their decision, and see if they have courage to
repair the wrongs they have done.
Yours sincerely,
to be sure.  I received rather an interesting letter on that vary subject

Coach Cy Lee Is not a whit discouraged with his proteges' showing.
They met up with a well-trained aggregation, and as the students bid had
only one practice together, their hopes
of victory were somewhat dim from
tiie outset,
Meralomas opened the scoring with
three baskets in rapid succession from
the centre of the floor. They continued this attack throughout tiie
first half, Varsity's tone defense proving rather hopeless against an outfit
who could drop the ball in from all
corners of the floor. Half time found
the count 18-8 in favor of the Clubbers.
The students adopted an entirely
different system on returning to the
floor, both forwards shooting whenever an opportunity afforded. Thia
game proved much better, the stu-;
dents outecoring their opponents 8-8

Sweeping westward from the Eastern boundary of the prairies, the
greatest football team that the University of Manitoba has yet produced
will in the next week undertake the
hardest schedule that a Western Intereollegiato squad hu ever faced. Leaving Winnipeg today, the brown and

on to Edmonton for the final game ef

White there Is still same doubt regarding the prairie winner, the possibility of either Saskatchewan or Alberta catching the speedy'Winnipeg
outfit is mythical. In points the best
that both of them can do is hope tor
a tie, and it is hardly possible that
the Manitoba sggrcgatien wttl drop
two sdooesetve contests after the
brilliant shewing that the Brown and
Oold have put up this fall If, however, they suffer a' leveresl ef form
and drop the remaining tilts, the title
would be given on a ooniparison of
scores for and against .each team, In
which case tho Eastern college would
probably be still far ahead ef the
other Universities.

pionahlps. The contest will mark the
first appearance of the Brown and
Oold gridders on the Pacific Coast
and will possibly be the innaugural
competition between Manitoba and
British Columbia teams in thc lair
of thc Western collegians. It will also
give one of the two, squads the honor
of having held thc traditional Hardy
Cup for a longer period than any erf
the other teams in the Intercollegiate
loop. In the opening year of competition the Manitobans engraved their
name on the^silverware. 1928, a season later, found Alberta too strong for
the other aggregations and ln the first
Intercollegiate football game to be
played in British Columbia the Green
and White squad conquered a youthful but rapidly improving Varsity outfit. The next year, Saskatchewan,
after conquering the prarie opposition, journeed to the shores of the
Pacific wltii the Hardy Cup, but were
forced to return empty handed, while
the trophy was moved to a new resting place at West Point Grey.
Last fall the boys from 8.C. went
east to defend their crown, but after
subduing Alberta, the western squad
went down before the driving attack
of the Saskatchewan gridders. Thus
each of the four teams in the loop
have held the coveted trophy for one
year, and Saturday's game will give
either Manitoba or British Columbia
a lead in the victories.

A list of games played at U.B.C. would
include the great majority of recognised athletic activities. There is, however, at least
one sport which has not boasted many devotees
at Varsity during the last two years. We refer
to the noble art of self defence, namely, boxing. Two years ago, under the leadership of
Charlie Woodbury, the Boxing Club included
quite a number of aspiring pugilists and it was
the custom to hold several matches annually'
Recently, however, the Club has becomeprac-*
tically defunct. At the present time en attempt
is being made to put boxing on a sounder
basis. There is reason to believe that the
Freshman Class contains considerable talent
and there seems to be no reason why a strong
healthy club should not exist. An .organization
meeting is being held at noon Monday and it
is important that all interestel1 in the sport
should attend and help to get thf Boxing Club
back into the position which the sport merits.

Regarding the stadium, it seems to us that the
importance of the present situation has suffered a lack of appreciation in general. It is
obviously true that efforts on behalf of the
stadium this year are but a faint echo of the
historic drive which came as the result of
student initiative last year; it is easy to point
out that those efforts are by no means completed; there is no great difficulty to surmount
in reminding others of their obligations; in
short, the present circumstances constitute a
shining example of a feeble attempt to cope
with a responsibility which has been shamefully neglected. 0
Perhaps if a few of the following questions
were considered by the student body in general, a more comprehensive perspective might
grow into being: Was the question of building
a gymnasium on the campus ever considered
an important issue by students of this University? If so, how was it dealt with? Was
the credit of the A.M.S. ever tested by any
downtown financial house? If so, have we
stood the test? Are we now, or shall we soon
be, in a position to make a similar test? Is
it not a fact that Alma Mater fees are lower
here than anywhere else in Canada? Could
we not raise our fees by an amount not to
exceed two dollars without imposing any serious hardship on future generations of students? Do these questions lead anywhere?
We ask you.
