WAR IN 1937
"War in 1987? No, I hardly
think so."
Such was the opinion expressed by Mr. Frank Hall,
President of the Vancouver
Stock Exchange, in an interview with the "Ubyssey" last
"Business recovery may
suffer one or two setbacks as
a result of the strife in Europe, but I should be very surprised to see Oreat Britain
becpme entangled. In B. C.

higher standards of living

Over   six   feet   in   height,
with humorous grey eyes and
a flashing smile, Mr. Hall is
still only a young man in spite
of his responsible position as
head of the Stock Exchange,
manager of Hall, Holland &
Company, brokers, and a Past
President of the Gyro Club.
Born  snd  ralssd   In  Winnipeg,
he gradustsd from tho Unlveralty
of   Mlneaota,   and   haa   bsen   en*
gaged  In stoeks snd  bonds ever
olnee.    In 1929 he and his father
built  the   Hall   Building   in   Vancouver.
"Ao for 'the saeret of my sue-

have merely taken over tha ralna
from   my   father,   and   If   I   have
mads any progress slnoe, It wss
simply  through   hsrd  work."
It  is   characteristic   of   Mr.   Hall
that,   with   a   skyscraper   to   pick
from, he has chosen a tiny Spartan
office  Just off  the  floor of  the  exchange.     His   clothes,   too,   reflect
his modest taste in the quiet grey
fabric   of  hts   double-breasted   suit
and plain white collar.    Outside his
window a ceaseless stream of traffic  flowed  past  through  the  January  slush,  through  his  door  came
the excited hum from the floor of
the exchange, his phone interrupted
him at minute Intervals, and twice

Social Credit
Not Played
"Aberheart and points
East" was the title Professor
King Gordon gave to his ad- |
dress Friday noon. Speaking
to over 200 Btudents, It was
his second "Behind the Headlines" lecture here this week.
Remarking   that   Abcrhart   was
not exactly a point but a period, he
said that a study of Alberta's Social
Credit experiment was very interesting and a new development in
Canadian democracy. In reality
Social Credit as practised in Alberta is the antithesis of democracy. Abcrhart has tried to turn
all Albeita into one big school in
which he ia undisputed master.
"Social Credit is not so much a
political opinion as a creed," commented Prof. Gordon. "It demands
a blind faith from its followers and
calls on them neither to question its
own policies or to listen to opposition to it."
"It is entirely a mistake to think
that Social Credit is played out. It
remains strong both from this mystical appeal and from the fact that
Aberhart has done much to alleviate acute distress."
From Alberta the speaker went
to Nova Scotia where he reviewed
the rise of co-operatives and credit
unions during the last year. The
chief force behind this movement is
the adult education work of St.
Francis Xavier University.
Westward a Uttle, Prof. Gordon
discussed the appearance of Fascism In Quebec. "The movement to
establish a fascist French-Canadian
state is basically economic," he said.
"The French are beginning to get
an idea of how they are exploited.
Their leaders, both church and secular, being afraid of Communism,
seek to combat it by deliberately
encouraging Fascist ideas. It is a
The sweetheart of Science, little Dodie Brown, is
all set to swing* it again at noon today, aided and
abetted by Jaok ,Emerson and some of his musioal
pals, in an impromptu "jam-session."
Old-timers will remember Dodle's oellophane-
draped Jungle Danoe of two years ago, and the Sophs

Emerson is an accomplished artist In more ways
than one, and the fun will be "Plenty-For-AII" when
he outs loose with his hilarious "M.C.-Ing" at 12.2-0.
The feature of the meet is to draw partners for the
Frosh Frolic, but don't let that stop you from turning
out en masse.    The mating will be good.
Freshmen still have time to enter this huge draw.

Local Specimens To
Be Found Among
Alta. Fossil Group
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, Edmonton, Jan. 81 (W.I.P.U.)— The
Vertebrate Palaeondtology Museum
at the University of Alberta contains some 5,000 specimens, most of
them "home products." The best
fossil is the reconstructed Duckbilled Dinosaur, playmate of Alley
Oop and the Moovlans, which is
some 32 feet ln  dimensions.
This is a very rare specimen ot
the flesh-eating dinosaur, which ln
all probability terrorized the other
animals of Its time. The pride of
the museum, from the technical
point of view, is a few disconnected
bones of the bird-footed reptile, the
Trooden. Since the characteristics
df this reptile were discovered
only after the find of these bones,
one can well imagine why Dr. J. A.
Allan prizes them so highly. Besides the many fossils, there ls a
large collection ot tools and trinkets, depicting the life of the Eskimos who lived along the Coppermine River some 1,500 years ago,
when hairy mammoths sported in
the tropical Jungles near the Arctic Circle.
A huge jig-saw map of Alberta,
made of plywood, depicts the contours and elevation of Alberta,
down to every square mile. This
museum ls one of the most Interesting exhibits at the University of
Alberta, and its value ls rated
highly, both form an educational
and an intrinsic point of view.

What are the conditions in
B. C.'s new Forestry Training
camps for the unemployed?
What lies behind the rumors
of another strike on February
lBt by these ex-relief campers?
Seeking the answers to these
questions, I visited "Forest Development Project No. 3," tho West
Point Grey osfp, whieh houses
100 men and is one of the three
largeat oampa under the new
aeheme, Inaugurated, last November by the Mlniater of Labor, tha
Hon. Mr. Paaraon.
"Camp 3" consists df 20-odd un-
painted build ings arranged in
square formation at the foot of the
big water tower south of the Boulevard. When I arrived it was Just
12 o'clock, blue smoke from the
cook house was drifting over the
snowy rooftops of the rows of cabins, and gangs of men ln black
tnacklnaws, khaki trousers, and
brown rain-test hats were crossing
the square on their way home to
In the cabin marked "Camp Office," I was greeted by the superintendent, Mr. C. L. Armstrong, a
slightly built, athletic figure In a
blue suit and white collar. Still
ln his forties, he has a long record
in the B. C. Forest Service. Five
years in Malaya, introducing modern logging methods to the hardwood industry, have left his face
deeply tanned ,and his blonde hair
thinned by malaria. His career also includes a Harvard education
and   a  war  record.
"This ls just one of 20 camps,"
he explained. "There are two others as large, and the rest vary In
size, some having as few as 25
men.     The  rate  of  pay  ls   30c  per
hour, eight hours a day, six days
a week. Out of this wage the men
pay 75c a day for board, and also
pay for all boots and clothing with
which they are Issued."
"Due to our inability to accommodate all single unemployed In
B. C a 'rotation' system has been
Introduced. Four dollars a week ls
held back from each man's wages,
and when the sum thus gathered
is sufficient to provide him with
an allowance of $4 a week until
May 1st he ts discharged, and another man  takes his  place.
"It ls this 'hold-back system' that
our boys object to. They wrote
Victoria, asking that this feature
be reconsidered. Victoria did not
reply. Finally a Union, organized
by the more radical element in the
camps, demanded that the Oovernment. recognize their requests and
take some definite stand on the
matter before  February  1st.
"The Department of Labour did
so some ten days ago, announcing
that the scheme would not be
changed in any detail. The matter
ls considered closed, therefor, by
both factions, ln spite of the reports
of papers that a strike is Impending."
Standing by the crackling heater
In the rough wooden office, I
watched the long line of men trudging through the snow past the window on the way to the dining hall.
Most were young men, many in
their twenties, and with their freshly scrubbed faces and vigorous
horseplay they seemed ln the best
of spirits. Only a few ot the older
men had the dull-eyed, careless appearance associated with the former
relief campers.
"Do many of these men manage
to   And   jobs   for   themselves   and
leave the government camps?" I
"No," replied Mr. Armstrong.
"The. majority of them will never
work on their own again, as long
as the government will support
them. There are a few of the
younger ones who are still keen
and Intelligent, but most of them
have been on relief so long that
they regard it as the normal way of
He went on to explain that the
Forestry camps are not relief
camps. "I try to impress that on
every man who enters. Every cent
they get they work for, and they
pay for every article of clothing
they wear and every meal they eat."
Asked to what extent "red" agitators had penetrated the new
scheme, the superintendent stated
that they had organized a union
among the workers in every forestry camp, but that the men ln
"Camp 3" had never been unreasonable.
"They all have to be handled
with gloves on, ot course, but my
own men have never given me any
trouble. Many of the former relief
campers come here with a chip on
their shoulder, looking for faults
and doing as little work as possible,
but they improve on acquaintance."
We then visited the kitchen, a
large bare wooden room, full of
enormous pots containing meat and
vegetables that filled the air with
fragrant steam. Four "flunkies"
scurried about expertly under the
watchful eye of "Ben" Lewis, a veteran among B C. camp cooks, and
a master at the art of story-telling.
A few moments later the big triangle outside the door jangled
cheerfully for the second shift to
"come and get it" and I sat down
at a spotlessly white, oil-cloth covered table loaded down with bowls
of food, from which each man
filled his own plate. The menu included tomato soup, potatoes, turnips, corn, roast beef, raisin pie,
blueberry pie, tea, freshly baked
bread, crackers and Jam. Everyone was very cheerful and leisurely,
and there was no sign of the rig-
Idly Imposed speed .and silence
that characterizes logging camp
The men sleep ten in a "hut,"
which ln spite of its unpromising
name is a solid, well ventilated,
wooden building roughly 15 by 50
feet, containing metal-framed cots
with springs, and a central heater
which ls kept burning all night ln
winter weather. Wash basins and
showers with hot and cold running
water are contained In a separate
At present "Forest Development
Project No. 3" is concerned with
the University Forest, removing debris and diseased trees, and planting new conifers in cleared patches.
The forest was logged off many
years ago by selective logging methods, and deciduous trees have since
threatened to replace the remaining
The Forestry training plan is
scheduled to conclude on May 1st,
being merely a temporary measure
to relieve unemployment. What
steps the Oovernment intends to
take then are still unknown. A few
men may be absorbed by the logging industry as a result ot Increased activities in 1937. Mining and
Ashing may support a few more.
The majority will expect the Government to provide employment for
them in subsidized railroad construction, or posibly on projects resulting from the new Defense plan.
England Is Speaker
At Institute
"The University stands for
a highway to the world. University costs are the price the
community payB for its grip
on the world. The aim of the
University should be to leave a
mark of unassailable dignity to
stand against bur-.aucracy." So
spoke Professor Robert England,
Director of Adult Education at the
University, in addressing the Vancouver Institute Saturday evening
on "The Threat to Disinterested
Education:  A Challenge."
In a concise, thought-provoking
manner, Mr. England outlined the
various types of adult education
which are needed today, discussed
the danger which threatens disinterested education through the
state's Invasion of personal claims,
and offered suggestions as to the
use and the place of the University
In the community.
Speaking of the Influence of the
state may have upon education he
said, ''Our systems are centralised
ln the provincial governments in a
way similar to the state control ln
Europe. But when the state Invades all personal claims a limit is
reached. The plan involves denial
of personality. Men become digits
ln a statistical analysis. It is what
I call an apathetic fallacy. Dictators tend to believe in the divine
right of kings. The ethics of a dictator are in offering to others the
opportunity to make the necessary
"There  la a  aeareh for unity,"
he oontinued.    "The atate aharee
In   aome   of   thla   phlloaophy.     It
haa taken  over muoh of the  re-
aponalblllty of the family and the
ohureh;   but  It  ahould  never delimit    apeoulatlve    thought    snd
freedom  of the  Individual."
Coming directly to the subject of
University  education,  Mr.  England
went on  to say that,  "the  University must supply disinterested education.    They are being challenged
to   meet   the   needs   of   a   modern
world.    Members of the faculty often become so preoccupied with different   languages  that  they  speak
different tongues.   Each one is sure
that the student should go through
his purgatory flrst."
Concerning debating the speaker
remarked, "Debate as an educational device ls a gladatorial show In
which the participants are ready to
take either side. The insincerity of
debate can encompass the ruin of
democracy. Debate tends to make
men express views in public which
differ from their private convictions. Democracy may have to develop other methods of debate."
Mr. England emphasized the importance of creative education such
as art, music and drama, and the
advisability of studying in interested groups rather than taking notes
from a lecturer. "We can leave
the specific skills to vocational educationists," he said. "The University should be for those who seek
art and  a design  for living."
Mr. George Winter occupied the
chair. President Klinck thanked
Mr.  England for his address.

Relief in 1937
Today's issue of the "Ubyssey" contains a brief survey
of tha Forestry Training plan, which was inaugurated last
November to relieve the unemployment situation ln B. C.
On May 1 the camps will close. What steps will the Oovernment then take?
Relief camps were intended to be a temporary measure,
not a national Institution. Pew can deny that The Depression ls now a thing of the past. Whether we like the thought
or not, we are now living ln normal times.
Unemployment seems Inevitable ln depression years,
but ln periods of business expansion such as the present
there ls no reason why the country should be called upon to
support one-tenth of its population in enforced idleness. Why
not divide the work as well as the national Income?
If business cyoles continue to prevail, Canada is scheduled to have another depression in 1940. Now is the time
to prepare for it. Industry must be made to absorb the
tenth man through shorter working hours. Money now
spent on Government projects could be used to subsidise the
industries affected to preserve the existing wage scale. The
continued existence of relief in 1037 is a sad reflection upon
modern society.
Ethereally-beautiful Greta Barbo
adds new lustre to her Orown ln the
film portrayal of Alexandre Dumas'
76-year-old story "Camllle."
Frail and fascinating Marguerite
will easily capture all hearts in the
flrst gay scenes at the ballet. Her
slight, delicately concealed cough
is a work of art; never obtrusive
enough to annoy, lt conveys to the
audience the real seriousness of her
illness. Ranging from tbe almost
exuberant joy of the country scenes
to the deepening tragedy ot the last
acts Miss Oarbo holds the entire
picture. Her sensitive, wistful
beauty fits, perhaps, more naturally
Into the latter scenes where with
an exquisite uplifted throatline she
can express the whole tragedy of
Marguerite  Gautier.
Robert Taylor, as her lover, Ar-
man Duval, provides an adequately
handsome background.
Lionel Barrymore as Duval's sensible father, who persuaded Marguerite to renounce her lover for
his own good, ls a disappointment.
The role is admittedly a poor one,
but Barrymore's loudly monotonous
voice seems more suitable tor a pulpit or a soap box than for a worried1 emotional parent.
Lenore Ulrlc as a rival coquette,
provides comedy relief. At times
thla ls a bit grim as when she is
ghoullshly bargaining for the dying
Marguerite's personal possessions.
However ,her blrdnest gown ls a
revalatlon in feminine fashion foolishness. Laura Hope Crews as the
aging coquette turned dressmaker
also affords relief from the emotion
of the main story. The moment
when she Inadvertently kisses the
butche rat the country wedding is
beautiful  ln  its  absurdity.
Henry Danlell as the baron, who
for a consideration, provides Marguerite with the money to pay her
debts, at times almost steals the
show with his dry wit.
The photography is superb; the
lighting ln the closeups being particularly good. There are excellent
uses of contrast in the film, the
bacchanalian revels ln Marguerite's
room being followed by the charmingly adyllio country scenes ot her
summer with Duval.
"Camllle" is a picture which will
not disappoint either Oarbo or Taylor fans. It there are any movie
fans left out of this classification
they are advised to go anyway to
enjoy a beautiful filming ot a famous classical story—Z. B. O.

SUCCESS at last.
Pro Bono Publico, the letter
writer, has finally seen flt to chastize this column. That, as Dr.
Sedgewick will tell you, is a sure
sign of success. Mr, P.B.P. has
made a grave mistake, however, in
dubbing me a "friend" of the readers. Nothing could be farther from
the truth. Columnists, with the exception of the Student Prince, have
no desire to be anybody's friends.
They thrive on hard words and indignant letters. As for the above-
mentioned Prince, HE will do anything to please, even to advising
freshettes how to hold their man.
Knowing his inside life, I would
say that the advice should be reciprocal.
Of coursb, it's fairly easy to see
what sort of a chap this Prince is
when you investigate his writings.
After carefully reading through
several of his columns I find that
three subjects lie uppermost in his
They ares Women, food and national defence. (Remember Mrs.
Simpson's Canadian light infantry?)
So, from those meagre facts I
would assume that this scribe is
the soldier type. The kind that
would get a great kick out of the
present fracas in Spain. But he is
more. He is the kind of soldier we
see on the screen, always finding
plenty of time to get out of the
trenches and drop in at the little
cafe in town, for wine, women, and
more wine.
A psyhcoanalylst could probably
tell you more, but it's better left
unsaid, that sort of thing. All I
can add is that, as a columnist,
the Student Prince has not yet been
officially recognised by Pro Bono

MORE on debates.
I realize that last week I
spent a good deal of energy running down some of the features of
our campus debating group with
out offering any feasible solution
for the troubles that beset it. But
at the Vancouver Institute meeting
Saturday evening Professor England came to my rescue. Says he,
in advocating the abolition of the
debate method of discussion:
"There is no merit in disagreement, or In the insincere advocating
of some policy in which the speaker
has little interest . . . often the
participants are prepared to take
either side in the question . . ,
controversy Is no help In finding
While some of those quotations
may be wrong, the idea is there.
Why should not our Parliamentary
Forum step out ahead of the times
and adopt some new method? The
British debaters hit the right idea
when they said that they didn't like
to debate against their opponents,
but rather WITH them. Somewhere
in all this there is an idea for a
sort of persuasive discussion group.
It would be a sign of foresight
if our Forum executive would stop
a moment and investigate their own
methods. We do not want victory
so much as debates where there is
no victory In the accepted sense.

Highbrows and Illiteracy

headlines with his pessimistic views
on the literacy of college freshmen.
In general, I am not disposed tc

Queen's friends assure me that the

At one minor point I should like
to correct the learned librarian's
account of the freshmen's "liberal

strip, the Sunday supplement and
the Saturday Evening Post." Instead of that last item, modern research would read "Liberty."
Further, I should feel rather happier about the librarian's championship of literacy if he had not been
guilty oi one grave slip in logic
(shade of Professor Watson I) and
of one gross grammatical blunder
(shade of Professor Cappon!).
Otherwise, he seems to speak
with more or less authority, as becomes one who can dally lift live
coals from the altar.
* •    *
But there is no sense in stupidly
neglecting the evidence in the case
and consequently laying the whole
burden of crime on "the system of
education which has been in vogue
in this country and other countries."
So far as I know, the librarian is
not guilty of these errors, though
he did leave the way open for his
commentators to commit them. Of
course, he is right in saying that a
horde of pupils, during these last
40 years, have come to the upper
grades illiterate and have left them
in a condition not too much improved. But apparently he has suppressed the obvious reasons for that
educational  failure.
In the days when divine revelations were being made to Principal
Grant, college students were comparatively few in number and they
came mostly from homes that either
possessed books or were lucky
enough to know their value. Such
students are just as numerous today as they ever were; in fact, they
are even more numerous, as every
enlightened teacher knows. But the
librarian of Queen's University
gives no sign of knowing it. And
he doesn't even give a sign of
knowing what the educational problem has really been.
* »    »
- What he should have made clear
is this: Great numbers of students
are now pasaing through high
school and attending college who
never would have dreamed of doing
ao in the golden age of Principal
Grant. In that glorious day, for
economic and other reasons, they
would have found it simply impossible.
In effect, therefore, the Queen's
librarian—though he doesn't appear
to realise thia—is objecting to the
arrival of the "lower classes" at
the threshold of higher education.
Possibly - he objects even more
strongly to the fact that they are
not turned away. As to the pitiful
cultural equipment of these "lower
classes," let me repeat, the learned
person is quite right. But he would
seem utterly unaware both that
they are not to blame for their
emptiness and that their schools
cannot be expected, in one generation, to make bricks where there
has been no straw. In his passion
of llbrarianship, he would even
seem to be ignorant that the schools
have been at least trying hard to
create the straw.
I am more thoroughly aware of
prevalent illiteracy than any librarian can possibly be. I am even
aware of the occasional illiteracy
of librarians. But I am also thoroughly sick of attacks upon education that are Impelled by class-
prejudice and. elementary blindness
to  social change.
I may have been misjudging my
friend. If so, I apologize here and
now. But if not, there had better
be another revelation at Kingston.
While the Librarian of Queen's
(Kingston) is picking himself up
and dusting himself off, tt Is only
fair to state that Dr. Sedgewlck's
views on things and men (especially pretentious men) appear
regularly In the Vancouver Sun,

Banned Picture It
Unequalled In
Artistic Effect
Banned by censor boards ot Canada and the United States, resulting In its director being deported
to Russia, "Thunder Over Mexico,"
which was shown in the University
Theatre last Friday, proved to be
the most sensational picture yet ottered by the Film Society.
The controversial subject ot the
film, the oppressive conditions ln
Mexico which lead to the revolt of
1906, was dealt with In a manner
which has never been equalled ln
the history of motion pictures for
beauty of photography and artistic
effct. "Thunder Over Mexioo" Is
but one part of a camera study of
Mexican life, which was financed by
Upton Sinclair and his friends and
directed by Sergei Bistensteln. A
second feature of the same series
was also shown, "Death Day," an
ironical portrait of the strange primitive festival that has been rejuvenated by the Catholic Church.
Especially notable ln both films
was the skillful use of rapid sequences of pictures — bull fights,
blood spattered Images ot Christ,
laughing senorltas, and berlbboned
candy skulls—all merging to form
one definite impression, and expressing with far greater Impact than
words Mr. Elsensteln's comment on
Mexican life. His amused contempt
for the Catholic Church in Mexioo,
ln particular, was subtly conveyed.
One typically Russian feature of
the production was the highly successful use of cloud effects and natural scenery, as well as Incidental
music, to create a suitable emotional atmosphere for the action.
As a result of attacks by censors
on the film, its reputation as revolutionary propaganda has been
greatly over-rated. Its frank glorification of militarism and industrialism in modern Mexioo are completely incongruous with the Communist
doctrine, while tho Institutions It
attacks oan be identified with those
In civilised countries only by a
wide stretch of the Imagination.

in Its artistic innovations.—K. O.

When Jyll Pclklngton-Smytho ,eft
her husband, Dr. John, everybody
ln the mid-western town of Ross-
villa thought they knew why. Stu-
art Wstallls, her childhood sweetheart, had come to tbe town to
open a beauty parlor, and she bad
been seen with him at a studio
party on New Year's Eve. The real
reason she had left John, however,
was that there was no spiritual understanding between them. Arriving ln New York she had visited
her mother and grandmother, Elsie
and Patsy Polklngton, and at a
cocktail party at their Park Avenue
flat she had met another former
admirer, Benny Jones, millionaire
stoke-broker, bachelor and man-
about-town. "Marry me," he urged
her, but she laughingly declined,
and two days later sailed for Paris
with Benny's artist friend, Count
Moronsky, a long-haired young Russian. Jyll returned to London where
she was besieged by the affections
of the Impetuous young Burl of
Colehsstsr, and went to visit him
at his estate, Upton-on-tha-Oowna.
At a dinner party she recognised
her husband, John Polklngton-
Smythe among the guests. "Let's
ride up to the crest of Pook's Hill
at six tomorrow morning," he called
to her during the dancing. "Make
it eleven," she called back gaily,
and went to bed feeling as giddy
as a school girl with a new beau.
She dressed carefully in her sand
colored jodhpurs, beige pongee
blouse and russet brown riding habit, top hat, and white foulard muffler. John looked rosy and boyishly
well scrubbed ln his creamy riding
breeches, mirror polished boots and
frlnedly tweeds that always smell-
ed, she remembered of, tobacco,
shaving soap, dogs, horses, etc.
"I have missed you very much,
John," she said.
"Jyll, could you ever come back?"
She waB Bilent. "I'm only earning twelve thousand a year In my
new practice, but things won't be
so hard after I get a raise," be
went on.
"No," she said. "I love you very
much, John, but we weren't meant
for etch  other."
They rode on In silence, the
horse's breath rising like smoke towards them. John urged his horse
Into a gallop, and made for a hedgerow. They cleared It like one leaping form, but a moment later Jyll
saw the horse stagger to Ita feet,
bleeding,  without  its master.
"John," she screamed, "Are you
hurt, John? Speak to met" Along
cream colored roadster shrieked to
a halt on the roadway behind, and a
long-legged, hatlees figure in white
flannels leaped to her assistance.
It was her old boyhood lover, Eddy
van Dusonberg, now an internationally known tennis star.
"Take lt easy, darling," he said,
as he helped her get him into his
oar, his browu arms strong about
her, his husky pleasant voice In her
ear. "Johnny will be O.K." Then
he hoisted the unconscious figure
into the rumble seat and they
roared dow ntlie hill.
"Jyll, I love you," he aald simply.

The Return of
Chang Suey
The Goon God
It was high noon ln the shrine
of Goon, yet the incense-laden air
was as obscure as midnight. Bowed
low before the shrine of his ancestral Ooon, Chang Suey muttered
his prayers. "O mighty Ooon, great
God Gutterfleld, if ever In Point
Grey I have striven to do thy will,
grant me this favour: free me from
the confines of last year's Ubyssey.
Let me go forth to obtain vengeance on the B.A.O. who entombed
me there. By my Wing-Jlng I
swear the lives of 18 freshmen to
thy altar should this come to pass."
He remained in breathless adoration before the Mighty One, slowly
burning meanwhile one-Inch
lengths from his beard. As the
sweet odour permeated the curtained chamber, the Dlety nodded.
With a cry of fiendish glee, the
Doctor arose. Calling his faithful
henchman, Ooom By and his brother, So Long, he stepped Into his
long black limousine. As it purred

Gay Jowled, the 1250-a-year power

sumptuous desk ln meditation. He
frowned down his nose at the sudden arrival of his chief stooge,
Hogan, but his anger changed to
alarm as the latter announced in
trembling "Chang Suey Is back!
The Public Address system is stolen, and there is poison in the Pineapple Juice machine!" Jumping into his shoes, Jowled rushed down
the stairs and found six Zetes stiff
and cold on tha floor. "What do
you expect tor a slug," exclaimed
the master mind. He hastily -gave
them an antidote of Caf coffee,
guaranteed to kill or cure, and
rushed to the stage. Soft music
fell upon hts ears as he insinuated
himself through the door, and he
saw 20 voluptuous Vestal Girls performing in adoration before a
black horse. As he approached on
tiptoe, he tripped over the figure
of Gutterfleld, the mysterious redheaded deity, who was attired as
Bacchus. "There's that man again",
said Jowled with ready wit. He
turned for another peep at the Votaries, but alarmed at the noise,
they had disappeared behind a pile
of lunch-papers. Jumping into his
shoes he raced after the ubiquitous
doctor. Just in time to see the two
henchmen carry Outterfleld, dressed
as Marie Antoinette, into a long
black limousine. As it pulled out
from the surb he could see the
mocking faces of Goom By and So
Long waving at him ln the rear.
Hogan rushed up: "You are wanted
on the phone," said he, be said.
The oily voice of Chang Suey asked
"Have you seen Outterfleld?"   Just

The big saw whined nearer and
nearer. Terrified, Isabel Fairflower
struggled ln her cruel bonds, and
watched its approach with eyes
wide with horror. Would her lover,
Ned Strongheart, never come to release her from her horrible doom.
Leering at her with cruel eyes,
Simon Stephano stroked his long,

flesh crept at the sinister note in

Ned  never come?

away a long rider was galloping like
a whirlwind. Yet, gentle reader, lt

heart, his face grim with determination as he urges on his gallant steed. Only another mile between him and his lo.ved one,
thought Ned. A few moments later

"Isabel!" he cried. "Where' are

said sheepishly, "but I couldn't get

"That's all right, Simon,' said
Ned. "Accidents will happen, you
know. What about the gold, though?
Did she tell you where it was?'
- "Oh, yes," said Simon brokenly.
"She was scared stiff and yelled
her fool head off. She even offered
to marry me. But I don't care
about that money now, somehow."
"Here," said Ned, removing the
cigarette that dangled from his lips
and producing a hip flask. "Have a

"No thanks, Ned," Simon said
firmly. "I never touch the stuff.

Harmer Stars As Varsity
Beats Huskies 3-2
Large Crowd Sees Renewal of
Hockey Series—Fast Game
With the invincible Jim Harmer
on sensational solo rushes and the
forward line ot Taylor, Ussher and
Trussell playing in perfect co-ordination, a crack U. B. C. hockey
team took a 3-2 win from the Huskies of'Washington on Friday night
when the two squads played the
first of a proposed three-game inter-
colleglate  series.
The local collegians gave an admirable performance considering
their great lack of practloe this
year, and lt was only the strong
defensive hockey which characterised Washington's game that prevented the Varsity team from piling
Up a bigger soore. The Huskies
were, by their own admission,
playing over their heads.
Although the match was, for the
most part, fast and thrill-replete,
both teams shpwed lack of condition as the game at some points
became sluggish and uninteresting.
This unhappy condition, however,
was existent only during the flrst
period, after which both squads
turned on a full blast of Inter-colleglate hockey heat, as tbe rafters
ot the Patrick Pile fairly shook
with ovation from the crowd ot
Varsity students. The attendance,
Incidentally, was one of the very
encouraging features of the game.
It clearly attested to the fact that
ice-hockey is definitely on the upgrade.
The flrst period started rather
slowly with neither team seeming
to get fully into the spirit of the
work at hand. No player starred
during this semester, although U.
B.C.'s Paul Trussell was a veritable
churn of activity as he worked tirelessly in an unsuccessful attempt
to put the team into the scoring
column. :
A few minutes before the whistle,
Denne of Washington, Bhot a long
one from the blue line, the puck
putting on a slow-motion act as lt
nonchalantly sauntered through
Goalie Shtrreff's pad-piled legs to
give the Huskies the first marked
of the game.
Although the Varsity team was
the stronger throughout this period
the strong Washington defense
prevented them from tipping the
score scales In the U. B. C. direction. After a few minutes of play,
hard-working Paul Trussell soloed
through into Husky territory to
knot the score and give the Point
Qrey  Power  Plant its  flrst goal.
Not content with playing a brilliant game at defense up until this
time, big, play-making Jim Harmer,
the Thunderblrd star, swooped
down into the Washington zone,
and with a well-placed Conacher-
llke shot bulged the net for the
flrst 'Bird bag  of the evening.
Clarence Taylor assisted Harmer
on the play. In the last two minutes of play, Fanton of Washington, again got the puck past Shirreff—the goal making the score
even at this  point.
It was during this final session
that Jim Harmer and Clarence Taylor turned on the heat, to prove
conclusively that they were the
shining lights on the Varsity Hockey   Horizon   on   Friday   night.
With about ten minutes to go,
Harmer charged out of his defensive spot to accompany Taylor
down the ice into Husky territory.
He nabbed the puck from Taylor
ln front of the Washington net,
shot—and—he scored! Ten minutes
later the game was over. The locals had taken the lead and had
held their men down until the final
whistle. Final score: Washington,
2;  British Columbia, 3.

Frankly Speaking
After the hockey game on Friday night it was intimated by Manager Hudson of the Wastl^gton Huskies that plans are under way to
form a Northwest inter-collegiate hockey league—the teams included to
be Washington, Montana State, Oregon State and U. B. C. According
to HudBon, the lad who instigated the Idea, nothing definite has as yet
been arranged, but the proposal was viewed ln a favorable light in
Seattle. If the plan crystallizes, the Washlngton-U. B. C. game of
Friday night will be the flrst in a series of games between teams from
the above-mentioned colleges. I pointed out to Mr. Hudson, that, ln
my opinion, the likelihood that U. B. C. could enter the proposed league
Is remote Indeed. It is all we can do to travel to Seattle, let alone
Montana or Oregon. We could, of course, meet those teams in Seattle.
The idea is a capital one and will undoubtedly meet with the approval
of the Varsity team, that ls, if Montana and Oregon would agree to play
us either in Vancouver or Seattle and be content with a small guarantee.
It's odd how a nickname seems to stick no matter in what peculiar
way it was plastered on. Ever since Dick Elson's been Sports Editor,
Gordio Livingstone has been dubbing him "Wlnchell". And Frank
Turner's basketball proclivities, plus the wavy mop, has made him a
self-styled "Curly Harper." Most provocative nickname—Art Wllloug-
by's "Burp." Most down-to-earth—George Prlngle's plain, old-fashioned,
unpretentious "Joe.' The soubriquet that always makes me wonder ls
Jim Bardsley's "Bugs." Most appropriate nickname is Alex Lucas'
"Seagull"—he certainly floats through the air—to the great advantage
of the Varsity Track club.
The comin"? Arts 30 Road classic reminds me of an old-timer's
version of the race he had to run "way back when" in'1932. Although
two or three feet of snow covered the ground that year, there were
more than halt a dozen contestants for the annual event, with an encouraging crowd of spectators lining the way. Believing he was aware of
the entire route, he set out, leading ihe pack until he started down
Marine Drive where the snow reached almost to his knees. Old-timer,
believing he was far in the lead, ran merrily on through the snow—
charging down a path that branched off from the Drive. His legs working like pistons, he floundered down the trail in a Herculean attempt
to retain that coveted lead. All at once the trail came to a surprisingly
abrupt end. Old-timer looker around, and all at once the horrible truth
crept up and struck him right between the eyes. He charged back,
frantically retracing his steps to the main road. Far in the distance
he saw a dark figure. It was as If someone had said: "They went that
way!" Off he galloped, but—alas, it was all to no avail—he finished
the race in fourth place ... a tired but stout-hearted runner. . . . Which
ls Just an example of tho old-time spirit and enthusiasm of those days.
They had a "Mr. Brltllng Sees It Through" complex then. There ls little
manifestation of it now.
Chance for
'Inexperienced  Players
Under the direction of Miss
Moore a new era in badminton is
being enacted here in our own
gymnasium. On every Thursday
afternoon from 1.30 to B.SO there
will be a mixed tournament for
which about 40 men and women are
already  signed  up.
Miss Moore haa not yet decided how these tournaments will be
run off, but there will be a draw
for    partners    and    courts   each
afternoon   and   it  is  hoped  that
each tournament will be finished
in the one afternoon.
The aim of the club is to give the
men a chance to learn to play, and
as there will be coaching in  team
playing  it will   be  an  opportunity
for those who wish to play and yet
cannot fit it in at any other time.
It  is hoped that* it will raise the
standard   of   university   badminton
in    general    and    members   of  the
afternoon   club  will   be   able,  at   a
later   date,  to  compete   in  tournaments in conjunction with the club
which meets in the evening.

Lafon, Martin Lead Way
In Fisticuffing In Wildest
Game of Season
With no chance of garnering a
playoff slot, the Senior B's on Saturday night turned on the A. & Q.
quintet ln a flurry of fists and sensational ball-handling to eke out a
thrilling 33-31 win in one of the
wildest games to be staged at McDonald gym this year. McKeoun
and Bacon led the way In the
matter of shooting, with eight
points each, while Martin and Lafon   led   ln   the   fisticuffing.
Right from the opening whistle
the   Point   Qrey   boys   stsrted   to
oliok and thsy had a thrss-polnt
lead  by  ths  time  the  hslf wss
over.    During this 20 mlnutee ths
team*   plsysd   smart   baaketball,
but   there   was   a   forsrunnsr   of
what  was  to  eome   whsn   Lsfon
•ngsged In a  little shoving with
one of the  A. 4k Q. plsysrs.
In   the second  half,   tempers  began to get frayed and lt was not
long  before there was a real outbreak  when  Martin  and   Campbell
fell to tbe floor and came up swinging.    On top of this, McKeown was
sent off for fouls, and this left Varsity   with   only   four   men   on   the
floor.    With the added man power
the A. & Q.'ers rallied to bring tbe
score  to  31-all,  but  with  only  seconds   to   go   Lafon   sank   a   basket
to  give   the   Students  a   33-31   verdict.
'Whether Arts 30 Will
Be Run Depends On
The elusive Arts '30 road race
seems to have escaped again
under the fresh blanket of snow,
which has dogged Its foosteps
since late last term. Manager
Joe Rita announced yesterday
that .a further postponement
would be made if the inclement
weather does not decide to sojourn elsewhere before Thursday morning.'
