No. 26
Honour? Athletic Fraternity Ii
Denied Sanction by Council
The President of the Women's
Undergrad Society announced at the
meeting of Students' Council, Thursday night that $200, intended for
refreshments for the Co-ed Ball,
would be turned over to the stadium
The Men's Athletic Association will
meet Thursday, February 12, to consider the recommendation of the M.
A.A. executive to the effect that no
student attending university be permitted to play on outside teams.
The offer of Delta Alpha Delta to
form an honorary athletic fraternity
on the campus was refused by the M.
A. A. executive and the Students'
It was further decided to request
Arts '32 to hold its class party during
the week of February 16-21, in some
suitable hall.
Council emphasized that tags are
being given to thos who have "done
their share" and not only to those who
have paid $6.00.
All efforts to raise money for the
stadium will cease on February 6, except for personal canvassing under
the jurisdiction of the committee.
At a secret session of Council last
Saturday It was decided that the
Thoth Club be not allowed to hold
a concert in the Capitol Theatre on
Sunday and a committee was appointed to approach Thoth with a
view to co-operating on more expedient projects.
VANCOUVER artists provided
the main items of the second
Musical Society recital of the
term, presenting a program varying
from elocution to soprano solos in
the Auditorium, Thursday noon. Members of the chorus from the "Pirates
of Penzance" offered several numbers from that production under the
direction of C. H. Williams.
One of the outstanding items of the
concert was the three dialict readings and a skit given by Mrs. Gladys
Letroy. These recitations met with
applause from the audience.
With excellent control and smoothness of tone, Miss Louise Stirk rendered three soprano solos, "Vissi
D'Amore" from Puccini's "Tosca,"
"When Daisies pied and Violets Blue"
by D'Arne and "The Lark now leaves
its watery nest" by Parker. Norma
Abernethy assisted at the piano. The
numbers were followed by Elsie
lussa, artist pupil of Kenneth Ross.
With excellent technic she played "On
the Beautiful Blue Danube," the well-
known composition by Elire. She
will again be heard in the coming
recital to be given by the Kenneth
Ross Studios, when the proceeds will
be donated to the Stadium Fund.
The concluding item, the Chorus of
Policemen from the "Pirates of Penzance," climaxed the program and
aroused anticipation of the forthcoming production.
Motion Picture Comedies
Offered Today
Noon, University Auditorium,
"Trouble Galore," "Felix
the Cat," Hodge Podge"—
direct from Hollywood, by
Education '31.
Today at noon, Education '31 is
turning from I. Q's. and the inculcation of knowledge to sponsor a riotous,
mirth-provoking movie show, guaranteed to extract laughs from the most
serious senior or the dullest freshman.
Education procured at great expense
the fast moving comedy, "Trouble
Galore," which has just closed long
runs of unprecedented success in the
largest theatres of loco, Port Haney
anal other large western cities. Along
with this mirthquake of merriment,
the management offers that immortal
hero of the screen "Felix the Cat,"
in one of his latest productions. In
an interview, Felix assured his many
movie friends that this is the greatest success of his career. Added to
the above attractions will be the popular "Hodge-Podge"—some sense and
some nonsense.
Don't fail to see the Education class
show an Educational Picture that is
non-educational, but oh, so funny. Today, noon, auditorium—admission 15c,
freshmen accompanied by a professor
—half price.
Old Chum and Cider
Featured At Smoker
In Aid Of Stadium
ROUSING residents of Almadene
on Wednesday night, fire-engines
rushed to the Alma Academy to
extinguish what was thought to be
an enormous conflagration, but turned
out to be nothing more than that
frightful affair called the Arts Men's
Smoker, staged by Arts '34.
The first item was a two-round
boxing match, for the championship
of Sweden, between Wildcat Curly and
Lightning Moore. The pugilists
started out slugging viciously, but
after one round, the effect of the
Old Chum and Cider began to show
on both and before the battle was
over, both were swaying groggily
over the floor. The second match,
between Arts and Science, represented
by Dr. Sedgewick and Prof. Einstein,
respectively, was a better exhibition
of skill, both fighters displaying their
ability to neck.
Prof. Fake, priest of the art of
Black Magic, next mystified the
assemblage by causing a varied assortment of silk handkerchiefs to
vanish and reappear. Besides many
other feats, he demonstrated how to
cause a fifty cent piece to vanish
besides giving it to the Stadium fund.
Following this, Dave Briggs, known
as Sandy McPherson, drowned out
the clamor of the audience with two
selections on the bagpipes. Then the
real fight of the evening was staged,
when Alf Allen entered with a box of
apples for the crowd.
Sciencemen Sell "Ubysseys"
Among Vancouver Public
And Add $50 To Fund
Prices ranging from 5c to $4
were obtained for copies of the
"Ubyssey" when Science '34 undertook to sell 2,000 of the
Stadium Supplement issue.
Homes, schools and business
cmpanies were visited and after
the initial expense of $58.00 had
been met, over $20.00 was added
to the Stadium Fund. The selling was done principally by two
members of the class, who
prefer to remain anonymous.
Alma Mater Society of Queen's
Expels Fraternities From Campus
KINGSTON, Ont., Feb. ...—The Alma Mater Society and
Levana Society of Queen's University, have forbidden formation
of fraternities and sororities composed of members of their societies within the University and have ordered that clubs already
formed be immediately disbanded. It is understood that medical
students had recently created a fraternity.
The "Ubyssey" will give further details of this development when they are available.
Stops loading to the expulsion of
fraternities at Queen's University
were as follows, as stated in the
"Queen's Journal":
The   Aeseulapian  Society    went  on
sion and was passed almost unanimously, only eight members dissenting. This decision has been referred
to the A.  M    S. executive.
The presidents of each year brought
record as lying opposed to the for-! in reports that they had held year
mation of fraternities at Queen's, at meeting to deal with the problem and
a special meeting held on Tuesday, the verdicts were that the years in-
The vote  came  after general  discus-   dividually were opposed.
Co-ed Students
Reject Smoking
By Big Majority
The motion that "no smoking by
women be allowed on the campus or
at any function sponsored by the
university," introduced by Patricia
Newlands, was passed by a large
majority by the Women's Undergraduate Society on Wednesday noon
in Artsi 100.
The president, Jean Telford, asked
for discussions on the subject before
a vote was taken. The first speaker
for the affirmative was Elaine Col-
ledge. "This is not a personal matter.
We have to consider other peoples'
views." said Miss Colledge. She appealed to the women students to help
retain the high opinions and standards
which the public holds of the university students.
Mairi Dingwall supported the negative side by stating that if the motion
was defeated, it would not interfere
with the Stadium Campaign. At the
Universities of Alberta and Saskatchewan the women students smoke
openly. Miss Dingwall felt that it
was more injurious to have surreptitious smoking than to accept the
rights of women on the campus. She
did not think that freshettes would
be foolish enough to take up smoking
if they had not done so before.
The motion was upheld by Margaret Muirhead. "I am not," affirmed
the speaker, "opposing the matter of
women smoking on the campus because of a moral point of view. Nor
am I clinging to old worn-out customs.'* Although she Hid not agree
with the ideas of the opponents, she
admired the courage of their convictions; "Public comment is not
directed favorably. Are we going to
choose this critical time to endanger
the progress of our university. This
is ill-expedient and ill-advised." Miss
Muirhead concluded by advising the
women students to weigh and consider the opinions of the authorities.
"We want to do the best thing for

Musicians Announce Roles
For "Pirates" Performance
When the Musical Society presents
the "Pirates of Penzance," February
20-27-28, the part of Edith will be
taken by Miss Betty Smith, of Arts
'32. Miss Smith, who is the vice-
president of the Society, will be remembered for her portrayal as Lolah
in last year's production. Besides
taking her own part, Miss Smith is
also understudying the role of Mabel.
Another principal character in the
opera, that of the swaggering Pirate
King, will be taken by Ian Douglas,
Arts '31. Douglas, who has been
featured at some of the noon-hour
recitals will be remembered for his
fine baritone voice, which is exceptionally well-suited for the part of a bloodthirsty, roving pirate, Mr, Douglas
comes from New Westminser, where
he is well-known in music circles,
That the Varsity Stadium Dance
at the Auditorium tonight will be the
most varied in entertainment as well
as the largest of its type ever sponsored by the University is evident by
plans outlined by the Stadium Dance
committee working under Ernie Gilbert, Arts '31, and Jean McGougan,
Education '81.
Tickets are being sold throughout the
city as well as at the University and
a large sale is already reported. The
committee points out that in this way
people of the city will come in direct
contact with University students and
a better understanding of the Stadium
Drive should result. At the same
time the price of tickets has been
kept down to $1.50 a couple. This
has been made possible as a result
of many concessions made by those
contributing to the dance.
Dancing will continue from 9-1.
There will be at least eight intermission numbers. Lilas Moore and
Frank Dumareque, popular Vancouver dancers, will give an exhibition
of their "International Tango" as the
opening intermission number. George
Holland will assist in the orchestra
with regular dance numbers, and will
contribute a solo on his piano-accord-
ian. Beryl Rogers, "Hi-Jinx" star,
will carry on with one of her dances
as an exhibition number. A comic
song, rendered by a Campus Trio, will
form one of the intermission variations.
Pauline Olson, exhibition dancer
from the Commodore Cabaret, will
also perform.
Novelties, decorations, and collegiate or sports dress will lend further
color to the affair. The matter of
dress is left mainly to the individual.
Anything in the nature of dress which
will be allowed in the Varsity Stadium will be allowed at the Stadium
dance tonight.
German Composer
Discussed By Club
The German Club met at the home
of Dr.. and Mrs. Clark on Monday
evening. The entire programme was
devoted to characteristic musical selections from the works of German
Bach, as the founder of German
music, was the first musician represented. Haydn, the leader of the
Vionna school, was represented by
a movement from "The Clock Symphony." This was followed by
selections from the works of Mozart,
one of the greatest musical geniuses
which the world has ever known. The
joyousness of the latter's music was
shown in the exquisite "Minuet,"
and the overture to "The Marriage of
Figaro." Next on the program came
the master of the Vienna school, whose
ever-popular overture to "Egmont"
particularly pleased the listeners.
Romanticism entered German music
as well as literature. "Fruhlings-
traum" was romantic in theme, while
Brahms carried the movement to a
point of sentimentality. The last as
well as the greatest composer of operatic works and the first genius to
combine exceptional literary talent
with musical ability of the highest
order was Richard Wagner, greatest
of  the   Romanticists.
Campaign Committee Is Optimistic
That $20,000 will be Obtained ~
Wti are going to reach our objective of $20,000," declared
Charlie Schultz to the "Ubyssey" on Thursday. "The students are
certainly not expected to provide the whole sum. All we ask is that
those who can, even at some sacrifice, will give $5.00. So far only
about one third have done so. ..Surely many others can help to
put this project through."
Campaign leaders point out that many who are working hardest will not be here to benefit from the stadium next year. It is up to
the student body to provide a fair share of the cost, they declare
To date a total of $5,952.99 has been collected, mostly on the
campus. Efforts are now being concentrated elsewhere, andI the
prospects of success may be estimated as follows: on hand, $5,952.«
99. Probable receipts from caution money, about $4,000. Receipts
from a number of entertainments that will take place within the
next month should bring in at least $2,000. $5.00 donations by
students should net another $2,500. $500 may be expected from
other sources, and the remaining $5,000 must be raised by canvass.
Among the events that are coming soon are the Kenneth Rom
recital on Feb. 16 and the Education Arts '31 dance tonight. On
Feb. 21. there will be a tea-dance after the McKechnie Cup game.

Dickens Is Portrayed
By Institute Members
At Open Meeting
SELECTIONS from Dickens in the
form of scenes acted by members
of the Dickens' Fellowship took
the place of the regular meeting of
the Vancouver Institute on Monday
night, in the Auditorium, at the university. «•
The first item on the program was
a selection from "Picwick Papers,"
portraying the visit of Sam Weller
to his mother-in-law. Sam Weller
was played by Mr. Ward, Tony Weller
by Mr. Luckett, the Rev. Stiggins by
Mr. Digby and Mrs. Weller by Mrs.
Deagle, all members of the Dickens'
Then followed a vocal solo, "Anna,
be With Us," by Miss Alison Sutherland, accompanied at the piano by
Mrs. Ford.
A recitation by Mrs. G. W.
Edwards, President of the Dickens'
Fellowship, from "David Copperfield,"
where David recollects his school-days,
preceded an impersonation of Sidney
Carton, from "A Tale of Two Cities,"
by Mr. Geo. Chugg.
The scene in the Inn at Yarmouth,
from "David Copperfield" as David is
on his way to London, continued the
program, the waiter being played by
Mr. Victor Akroyd and David Copperfield by his son, Brant Akroyd.
Another vocal solo by Miss Sutherland, "Sink, Red Sun," was followed
by the concluding number which was
stated by many to be the best of all
the selections rendered during the
evening, a scene from "The Chimes,"
one of Dickens' Christmas plays,
where Meg brings her father his dinner on the street. Mr. Ward played
Tony Veck, while Miss Queenie Ward
took the part of Meg.
Inter-class debates will get under
way when Arts '31 meets the Science-
men on Tuesday, February 10, in
Arts 100, at noon. Frank Hall and
Nick Mussallem, Seniors, will uphold
the negative of the resolution, "Resolved that lawyers, as such, should
fight cases for the best interests of the
common weal and not for their own
benefit," while a team from Science
will uphold the affirmative side of the
above resolution. The Debating Union
is waiting for two debaters from Science to accept the above challenge.
These men should give their names
to Frank Christian, debate manager,
The third debate of the series will
be between the Aggie men and Arts
'34. This inter-class debate will be
held in Arts 100 on Monday, February
16, at noon. Those students who are

to their literary representative. It
is hoped that all students will support
the Debating Union by attending these

U.B.C. Chapter of S.CE
Assists Revision
Fewer Words And More Dollars
Initiative and determination of the student body have been
Jut to the test during the past two weeks. The response has
een splendid, but, according to the estimates given in the article
in this issue, at least $2,500.00 more should come from the pockets
of the students. That means that 500 more $5.00 contributions
must be made.
When it comes down to actually handing out hard cash in
lump sums, many begin to lose enthusiasm. It should be remembered, however, that this is not an undertaking of those who are
collecting the money, but an undertaking to which the whole student body is committed. Another tendency evident at this time
is the talk about the personal sacrifices that have been made a*
ready in order to Justify a refusal to give an additional amount.
Except for the work of completing the collection of personal
subscription, the campaign on the campus is practically over. A
reading of the front page article will show that the drive is going
to continue for several weeks in the city and province, and the
prospects of success are good. If the students want a stadium,
they will provide an additional $2,500.00 in short order.
Fewer words and more dollars are the need of the present
Criticism From Above
Not Infrequently, members of the Faculty and Administration indulge in public utterances about the "Ubyssey." Reports
of such pronouncements are often received. When made openly
in the classroom, there usually can be no objection. Lately, however, it appear that the "Ubyssey" has been defamed and unjustly attacked in several instances by professors and high authorities—and not always in the classroom.
When the nature of the remarks that rrTembers of the Faculty
and Administration feel called upon to make is personal, or tends
to defame and misrepresent, we should prefer to hear them in a
direct way. The unfortunate feature of such comments is that
most students are eager to swallow anything that these minds
unload on them. Often the comment is favorable, and in such
cases should be accepted as having tremendous weight. When
anything unpleasant or hostile is said about the "Ubyssey," however, we advise students to remember that a professor has his
prejudices, his likes and dislikes, just as do other people; and to
ask themselves if the worthy critic is not just talking through
his hat.
Editor,  "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
May I once more make use of your invaluable "Correspondence" columns, this time to
convince my worthy critic E.N.A. of the error
of his ways, and to rid his mind of the delusion under which he is apparently laboring. Since my friend the Sport Editor Is
similarly in error, judging by last Friday's
"Sportorial," what I have to say applies also
to him.
For some reason, probably to divert attention from the main point I raised, both E.N.A.
and the Sport Editor pounced on my comment on Del Flnlay's story, and commented
pleasantly on my sense of humour. Now, just
three lines of my letter were concerned with
this write-up, and I mentioned It merely as
an Incidental example of the general befuddled, non-pertinent character of the sports
stories and headings, especially those on
basketball and soccer. However, since my
critics feel such great compassion for me In
assuming that I failed to see the scintillating
cleverness and humor in this article of Mr.
Finlay of "the valuable Star," let me hasten
to assure them that had it appeared on the
inside of the page it was on, Instead of in the
guise of a sport write-up, I should Immediately have hailed It as the literary masterpiece
it undoubtedly  Is.
Since E.N.A. and the Sport Editor apparently cunnot understand my luck of appreciation of tho write-ups I am criticizing (for
example, Tuesday's Senior "A" basketball
story --extract: "The Knights did not like the
Varsity basket, and they shunned it completely. On the other hand the Blue and Gold
laddies had a strange interlude and forsooth,
developed a yen for the little basket") if they
care to look up the story of Monday's "Province" on this same Varsity-Crusaders game
they may get an idea of what I consider a
normal, interesting sport write-up. As for
soccer, last issue's special Senior Soccer
write-up by Ilessle Robertson was at least
100", better than the regular stories. Reully, I
would suggest to the Sport Editor that he
make every effort to retain Miss Robertson's
In closing, T must extend to E.N.A. my
heartfelt thanks for the kindly words of commendation he so graciously bestows upon my
unworthy  self.
Again  and finally,
Your contritely,
R.   C.   PRICE.
Editor,   "Ubyssey."
Dear  Sir :
Being a non-Thoth member and in no way
connected with this Society 1 would like to
express the opinioi; of at least o few of our
undergraduates, The Thoth Society, after attempting to enlarge our much needed Stadium
fund and after being balked at each turn (I.e.,
the Sunday Night Concert and the Pep Meeting) ; is perfectly justified in its decision to
drop all future money-making plans concerning the Stadium. Can we expect this project
to succeed If a wet blanket is thrown on such
enterprising   plans?
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Deer Sir:
When we heard the results of the Women's
Smoking Fiasco, we jumped up and down and
tore our hair and scratched out our eyes,
figuratively of course, Never in our life have
we heard of such rank injustice to the student
body, ae that perpetrated by Faculty members when they cancelled lectures so that the
Dean of Women could speak to the students
without being reported by the "Ubyyssey" so
that she would say what she thought she
should  say  to  pander  to  public  opinion.
The manner in which this same dean has
wheeled votes from the women and the way
in which the girls have allowed themselves
to be beguiled are equally disgraceful to the
eye of the Impartial observer, which we are
not of course. Now we suppose that the coeds who had the nerve to speak their mind
are in disgrace which seems to be the usual
thing in matters pertaining the life of the
women at this university. Of course the Dean
did not attend the meeting. She didn't have
to. She had done her stuff previously by
means of teas and cancelled lectures. These
leading coeds who sent out slushy and highly
moral views urging their sisters not tu besmirch the guod name of their university
come of a .type which Is all too numerous In
this  part   of   the   world.
Still it's quite funny. We live out In the
wilds and entertain views which would do
credit to the passengers of the '"Mayflower."
One last word We are neither of us females,
I hunk  the lord.
"The Student Christian Movement
of Canada is a fellowship of University Students based on the convictions of a need for the co-relation of
life to that which is ultimate and
universal, and which is engaged in a
co-operative search for this reality.
By this fellowship the life and findings of Jesus are elected as the central
field for study and experimentation.
Most members of the fellowship
form the conviction that in Jesus
Christ are found the supreme relation
of God and the means of the full
realization of life, and are seeking
through prayer, study and service to
understand and follow Him."
This is the new Aim and Basis of
the movement, as suggested by Francis J. McKenzie and Thomas S.
Barnett, leaders of the Movement at

"Industrialism is creating a world
society in which even amusements are
commercialized and in which the Literature is overloaded with a stream
of business propaganda," they state.
"However, the majority of students
do not completely surrender to the
material ideas dominant in the state,
although for many they do remain
the most powerful ends," they continue.
The University curricula afford
students the opportunity of coming
into contact with the best thought in
all fields except that of religion. The
majority of students are unaware of
religion. They do not know what
religion is, says the paper.
"Students are unwilling to expose
themselves to any organization which,
like the Church, has a thesis to prove,
an axe to grind, a gospel to preach,"
the authors state.
"The existence of the S. C. M. is
justified inversely with the degree of
its identification with the function
and method of the church. Its work
is complementary, rather than antagonistic to the work of the Church;
yet it is quite distinct from it."
Barnett and McKenzie say that the
Movement exists because certain students are convinced of the need of a
comprehensive, satisfying view of
life, and because they are determined
to satisfy that need. This is the
thing upon which the movement is
founded. It is for this reason that
the expression of the outlook of the
movement should be something to
which all those comprising the movement should be able to subscribe.
The Barnett - McKenzie recommendations were considered at the
National Committee meeting last
September. As a result a commission
was set up having branches in all
universities in Canada in which there
are S. C. M. Groups. A combination
of the reports of these commissions
will be presented at the next general
meeting in the fall.

ourselves, for our university and all
it means to us."
"We are old enough to know our
own minds," began Bunny Pound, upholding the negative side. She did
not consider the question of public
opinion to be a strong one. She stresed
the fact that the supporters of women
smoking did not want to smoke anywhere but in the parking section and
at university dances.
Wilma Morden outlined to the
Society the similarity between the
question of women smoking on the
campus that arose eight years ago
and that of today. "These women
wanted to smoke just as much as the
students do today, or even more, for
they were pioneers. But they sank
their own preferences in the interests
of the University. At that time,
too," said Miss Morden, "the university was staging the most successful
campaign of its history. Let us
imitate the spirit of the women of
eight years ago," she concluded.
Molly Jordan was third speaker in
favor of women smoking on the
campus. She was of the opinion that
a certain place should be provided for
smoking, but, above all, that women
should not smoke in the cafeteria.
A motion for secret ballot being
defeated, a standing vote was taken,
showing that the motion was passed
by a large majority.
After the adjournment of the meeting Betty Buckland appealed to the
women students for their hearty
support in the Stadium Campaign.
All contestants for the Gervais
Tournament who have not paid their
fees are requested to do so as soon
as possible so that new equipment,
can be purchased for the courts and

Dear  Sir:
The decision which was made Wednesday
by the W.U.S. that no smoking be allowed
among the women on the campus or at any
affairs sponsored by the University, was
pussed almost unanimously. Women may be
proud of this step which has undoubtedly
earned them the approval of those with the
best interest of the University at heart. Tho

and the public at large.
The question of smoking on the campus Is
not a new one, having been first voted on
eight years ago. in the old buildings at Fair-
view and defeated by an overwhelming
majority. Since then it has remained on
unwritten law. Each year tho women have
seen fit to maintain this rule with infringements only in some cases. This, however,
though regrettable, was not felt to merit
the defeat of the motion. Tho debate was not
one of personal taste or individual right,
hut whether or not the present Infringement of the rule merited the defeat of our
present system and the making of new regulations which would allow smoking in specified places on the campus. Knowing, however, that such a new ruling would only cam
the reputation that smoking among women was

FIRM,  .
Canadian Universities is smoking accepted
among women students and then only in rooms
set apart for that purpose.
We as yet are not In a position to allot
special rooms In our limited building space for
Further there Is public opinion to be considered. We need the support of our Province
at all times and particularly nt the time of
our stadium campolgn. It Is not mere hearsay that people have threatened to withdraw
their support from the stadium and the Women's Union Building if a motion for smoking  carried.
Certainly the number of women on the
campus who actually smoke is small, perhaps ono seventh, which is a hundred of the
850 women students nnd, contrary to the
opinion of many, not all these have cared to
break a rule of such long standing as that
forbidding   women   to   smoke  on   the  campus.
As fir smoking in the cars, it is regrettable
but we feel, less to be deplored than official
recognition   of   smoking   would   have   been.
And now that the women have taken this
stand, after hearing the question discussed
freely at the meeting on Wednesday, they
are ready to stnnd by their position. The
motion was carried with enthusinsm. Those
who stood against the motion will be fair
enough to help us carry out the wish of the
majority. It is now up to the honor of each
Individual student.

The Shrine of Shrdlu
By Cherub
All was silent in the dim corridors
of the temple of Muck. In the flickering candlelight before the altar of
the Muse a shadowy figure was bowed
in supplication. On either hand the
tall pillars reached aloft to the regions
of the High Priest.
Suddenly a gong sounded with a
reverberating 'boom.' The dim figure
stirred and a voice arose from out the
darkness; "Oh, thou, relation of ten
thousand sciencemen," it droned,
"What doest thou here, defiling the
sacred precincts with thine unholy
For a moment I stood rooted to the
spot with fear, not knowing from
whence came the awful accusation.
Then I realized that the figure was
addressing me. "Oh!" I grunted, "I
came to see you about your donation
to the . . ."
"Begone," intoned the presence,
"Knowest thou not that this week
the Muse visits the University. We,
the disciples of Muck have no time for
such as thou and thy donations. We
must invoke the Muse and pray constantly for divine inspiration.'1
"You don't say?" chimed in a voice
from close behind me, "How nice."
With a yowl of surprise I jumped
around to find myself face to face
with Kiku Krosmioto.
"Has this naughty man been talking to you like this all the time?" she
"Yes," I confessed.
"Well you ought to be ashamed of
yourself you big bully!" she blazed,
turning to the now visibly angry
presence "Why, little Erno has only
been . . ."
"Begone" thundered the voice once
more, "I have spoken, and my word
is law. Begone! Ere I have my
minions evict thee."
"Come on Kiku," I mumbled, "Let's
go before the old boy has us chucked
However, Kiku was made of sterner
stuff than I, and would not go without her last word. Just as she was
preparing to utter a scathing retort
she stopped, her lips half open, in a
listening attitude.
"Hark," she whispered.
"Aye, well may ye harken," the
voice went on, "yonder sound that ye
hear is the chant of those who serve
the Muse. The diety whom we all
worship now approaches."
With these words the shrouded
figure rose and stalked majestically
towards the statue of the Muse.
Kiku siezed me by the hand and
drew me into the deep shadow of one
of the pillars. Breathlessly we
watched the terrible one perform the
sacred rites of Muckism.
Thrice did the possessor of the
thunderous voice bow down before
the statue and thrice did he raise his
eyes in silent adoration to the motionless shape above him.
Then turning to face the door
through which I had entered, the
dim figure sank slowly to the ground
A gong crashed overhead.
Shudderingly we stood gazing at
the prostrate figure. For a long seemingly endless moment we waited,
then the chamber was filled with a
blinding glare—we were in the presence of the Muse of Muck, Etaoin
I must reach in my purse again for the
money that isn't there,
And all I'll find is a thin dime and a
pocket book that's bare,
And a bus fare and a car fare but no
green-backs showing,
A large 0 in my bank book, and a
large bill owing.
I must reach in my purse again, for
the cause of the Stadium fund
Is a good cause, though an old cause
we thought was moribund,
For all they ask is a quick campaign
with no student shirking
To get ourselves a playing field to
start men working.
I must reach in my purse again to see
what I can give
To the stadium fund and keep no more
than what I need to live;
And with the dime I'll by a hot-dog
from the Sciencemen who riot,
My caution fees I'll sign away and
then go on a diet.

Victoria College, Varsity's little
brother, will be well represented in
these parts this week-end when the
Island students make their "return"
invasion. In the past it has rather
been the tendency of university un-
dergrads to ignore the invaders in
spite of the generous welcome which
we receive from the collegians during
the Victoria Invasion. This year, after the fiasco of our annual trip, it
would not be out of place if local
students made special efforts to entertain the visitors. A little more
courtesy when the Victorians appear
on the campus Saturday would do a
lot towards more friendly relations
between the two institutions.
On the face of it, the co-eds do not
want to smoke on the campus. That
is their business. But to a mere
male, it seems strange that the fact
that one pays to attend an institute
of learning obliges one to submit to
such restrictions upon personal affairs. In my opinion smoking is as
much one's own business as the

Gansner Clips Half Minute
From Cross Country Record
+  +  + +  +  + +  +  +
Leo Gansner, peer of Varsity distance runners, showed a
clean pair of heels to all competition Wednesday afternoon when
he shattered the record for the Cross-Country run. Breaking
the tape a good 20 yards ahead of Swift, his nearest rival,
Gansner clipped 33 U seconds from the old record.
The race was closely contested throughout. At the gun
Swift of Arts '34 took the lead, closely followed by Alf Allen
of the same year and Leo Gansner,
Arts '31. As the runners neared the
the fence marking the
edge of the ploughed field
a sprint for position ensued which left the leaders in the same order as
before. However, while
crossing the field, Swift , „
took the wrong way and L# Q•IU,n•,
was forced to run over more difficult
ground than Allen and Gansner. The
grind across that mass of quagmire
took much of the fight out of
Swift but he gamely maintained his
lead. Gansner, who had been going
great guns across the mud, gradually
overhauled the weakened freshman
and passed him when the hard road
was reached. From that point on
Leo led the field home. Twice Swift
tried to pass him but could not stand
the pace. Allen, who had been left
beh tad by the leading pair as they
duelled for position, was content to
hold his place and finished about 100
yards behind.
Perhaps the most spectacular event
of the race was Ashley Shatford's
bid for position. When the stretch
of bush was reached he was running
eighth but before he attained the
other «We he had passed three men.
Still later, on the hard road, he
passed Dicks who gave him a great
race to finish a close fifth.
Arts '34 won the race aggregate
with a total of 28 points; Arts '31
was second with 10 points (all made
by Gansner) and Agriculture third
with 7 points.
The time for the grind was 14 min.
40 sees., just 33 V, seconds better than
the old record of 15 min 13 Mi sees.
Especial note should be made of the
fact that the first five men to finish
rounded the course in less than the
previous record time.
A feature of the race was the unprecedented entry list, a total of 32
athletes lining up to face the gun.
This is more than double the number
that has ever started on a previous
occasion. Track Cllub officials express themselves as delighted with
such a display of enthusiasm.
The runners finished as follows:

Arts '34 handed Arts '32 the proverbial lemon on Tuesday, when the
Greenmen triumphed, 2-0, in an inter-
class soccer game. The contest produced the best football this term and
showed both teams to advantage.
They were well-matched and played
a clean, hard game.
Arts '34 opened the scoring when
Ted Denne converted a perfect centre.
Arts '32 came right back to press until the half-time whistle.
After the chow the '34 boys took
the game in hand and performed
right nobly. Laurie Todd foozled the
lone tally of the second half past
Jimmy Cox from a difficult angle. The
Juniors put up a fight for the remainder of the half, but were outclassed. Broadhurst played nicely at
full back for '34, while Dickson was
the pick of '32.
Stellar goal keeping on both sides
was the feature of a fast and furious
engagement which took place when
Varsity's crew of puck hunters hooked
up with the Ex-Kitsilano sextette at
the Arena, last Monday night. An
equal measure of succes was attained
by both sides the final count being
The first frame was characterised
by wild shooting on the part of both
teams and lack of score. Two minutes
after the primary recess the Kits
forced a melee round the collegians
fort and with three or four men Tying
on the ice McGregor was unable to
keep track of the rubber which was
squeezed over the line by someone.
The students appeared to be a trifle
upset at the general trend of things,
so they made a determined onslaught
which resulted in a scramble in front
of the Kitsilano net. The multicoloured goalie cleared the puck divers
times, but his partners in defence did
not co-operate, with the result that
Darrah was enabled to sag the hemp
*«-   Varsity's  lone tally.    The  Ex-
Kits, attempted to take the lead
again a moment later, when they succeeded in outwitting the college
guardian, but the ref. decided that
they were over anxious and ruled the
attempt off side.
The final session was replete with
thrills for the folks behind the fence.
Both goalies were called on to save
time and again. McGregor, in the
Varsity net played brilliantly; on
four occasions the Kit forwards drew
the college defence to one side and
then slipped the puck across, giving
the har.equin right winger an unhampered chance to score; just as
often, however, the college custodian
was in the way when the shot reached
the net. Several times the rah rah
boys came within an ace of collecting
a second tally, Ramsden, in particular, providing the Ex-Kit tender with
several  bad  moments.
Monday night is set for the next
hockey battle, when the Blue and Gold
squad   will   tangle  with   Wanderers.
Junior soccer fans will have to
travel this week if they wish to see
their boys in action since the team
tangles with Richmond at Brighouse
in a league fixture which should produce plenty of thrills. The forward

Varsity B Badminton team travelled
all the way to loco Wednesday night,
only to meet ignominious defeat at the
hands of the local team by the scope

play   was   loose   and   slipshod.

game of the evening. He and George

English Ruffby Squad
To Meet Meralomas
Varsity's rejuvenated English Ruggers return to Tisdall Cup warfare
Saturday, when they tangle with
Meralomas at the Oval. After the
McKechnie cup win last week the students are all set to adminster the
royal bumps to the Kitsilano aggregation. There will be no change in the
winning line-up.
The tit-bit of the English Rugby
program this week will be the game
at Lower Brockton, when Mcllmoyle's

a return match after the Capitol City
men triumphed at the Bird City, 8-0.
The Sciencemen seem to be going
to the bow-bows. Wednesday afternoon there was a little matter of a
Canadian Rugby game with the cultured Artsmen. Naturally the Science
laddies expected to wipe up their
rivals, in a friendly spirit of course.
But Science turned out minus their
notorious red sweaters and couldn't
do a thing and thus the educated
faculty triumphed by nine points to
In the first quarter the lad Latta
punted the pill between the uprights
to draw the first gore for science.
Then Winters became angry and
smashed through for a touch. Science
came back and Donaldson ran thirty-
five yards to touch while the artsmen
obligingly laid on the grass and
watched him. Scotty Mclnnes urged
on by the stentorian howls of announcer Vance the Science idol,
brought his cohorts to striking distance and in the third quarter
Hedreen (the same Hedreen) dropped
a peach of a goal to level the count.
The science lads tired in the final
spasm and even Sandy Smith lost
interest in proceedings. Mclnnes
roared and finally someone brought
down Latta behind his line to win the
old ball game
Casualties were even. The Slide-
men ruined Cam Duncan while Arts
came back to biff Latta. A feature
of the game was the variety of names
bestowed upon referee Del Finlay by
Freddy Bolton. Mclnnes has no
voice left today, Front Page Vance
is happy at last while the science
braves are all peaking and pining.
Hedreen must be tired and most of
the science lads bear his trade marks.
The outstanding player on both sides
was the referee.
Second String Ruggers In Feature Contest
When the "Princess Kathleen" pokes its nose through the fog
around Pier D at 6.45 tonight, a horde of Blue and Gold brothers
from Victoria will swarm the gang-plank all set to administer a
dose of the same medicine they gave Varsity at the beginning of
the new year. Five athletic teams have stored up a large supply
of what-have-you in order to squash the local boys in rugby,
women's grass hockey and the '"little-white-pill swatters."
Varsity for the last few years have
Wednesday was election night at the
gym. At any rate a collection of sweet
young things called the Young Conservatives dropped in on their way
westward to see what could be done
about these undefeated Varsity
basketball ladies. On the other hand,
the coeds seemed to be suffering from
the effects of a week's spree and were
more incimbu to doze than toss a silly
old ball here and there on a polished
floor. When the score read 17-9 for the
politicians both teams decided that
enough was plenty and the coeds went
home to bed while the Conservatives
went down twn to celebrate.
Now the idea in basketball seems
to be to drop the ball into the steel
hoop and to do this, it is customary
in the best circles to get somewhere
near the old hoop. The Varsity
girlies were far too proud to do this
while the Tories being used to mingling with the common throng did
quite a lot of parking beneath the
ring., And the reason they did this
was because this is how basketball
games are won. Half time scores
were 8-4 for the visitors. In the next
canto the college stars continued to
nap and the Tories piled up a few
more of those things called points.
Grid Battle Looms
Greatly bucked up by their last
Saturday's triumph over the Meralomas, the Varsity team is full of confidence in the successful outcome of
their impending game with the
Cougars, which will take place this
coming Saturday at McBride Park at

last encounter are always hard fighters and will be a tough team to beat.

since the local boys will be playing
at home they are conceded an edge.
The ticking of the clock will eventually upset someone's fond hopes of recouping the family fortunes on the

Senior Hoop Squad
To Stage Benefit
Bring out the old and bring out the
new will be the slogan for the day
when Varsity's Senior "A" hoopsters
tangle in a cage battle to settle the
supremacy between the newcomers to
the squad and those who have had
experience in former years in senior
circles. The tussle will be held in
the Gym today, noon. The proceeds
of course will be donated to that
cause well known to all, namely the
ailing stadium fund.
At this benefit performance, Arnold
Henderson and Bobbie Chapman will
play guard for the honor of the Old
Boys while Nicholson will garnish the
floor at centre. Ted Barbour and
Cy. Lee will parade under the admiring gaze of the coeds in the positions
of forwards left and right respectively.
For the novices to the senior ranks
"Alpine" Alpen plus "Osborne the
Only" will protect the basket from
the raids of their opponents while
Eddie Armstrong one of the diamonds
from Shore's diadem will scintillate
at centre berth. "Push 'em in Pi"
Campbell and Randy Tervo will be
here and there on the polished boards
in the role of forwards.
Don Hutchison, grandiloquent president of the A. M. S , will toss the
first ball at the opening of the fray
when the two crack aggregations will
go through the various antics that
mean basketball. Ralph Thomas, a
sprinter and thereby qualified, will
act as referee and Lome Falconer is
to be the ubiquitous umpire. Arnie
Cliff will be the score keeper while
Harry Thome, genial head of the
club, will preside as general convenor
and ticket taker. All this for ten
cents at the gate.
Co-eds To Tackle Islanders
It may not be generally known, but there is a campus organization known as the Women's Grass Hockey Club. So far this
season these lasses have been going places but they have not
been doing things, a fact which causes Marj. McKay plenty of
grief. The U. B. C. team which is so good that the players
thereon do not even bother about practices has won the odd
game, at least we hope so. Four of its members have been chosen
to play on representative league teams, which is very complimentary.
But it is the Varsity squad which most inspires our admiration. These girls realize their shortcomings and contrary to
their lofty sisters always turn out to practice, keep early hours,
drink nothing but milk and that in moderate quantities and in
fact do all the things that serious athletes are supposed to do
but don't. They have not won a game yet but that doosn't mean
a thing to them. They play the game for the game, and don't
give a hoot for the somewhat contemptuous manner in which
they are treated by the U.B.C. stars. What we would suggest is
that^ instead of fielding a definite unchanged lineup for the U.
B. C. team, the club officials should get busy and replace some
of the drones with the more keen members of the Varsity shin
crackers. A team that can lose game after game and still show
spirit, deserves one of these great hands that all good sport
writers rave about.
