Robertson and
Belkin Speak
The most interesting and important debate to be held here this
term will take place In Arta 100,
at 8.80 today, when debaters from
Oonsaga Unlveralty oppoae representatives from the Parliamentary
A telegram which waa received
Thursday by Jim MacDonald, Forum prealdent,, stated that the pair
of speakers would arrive this morning from Spokane, Washington.
Of pressing interest to all students at Varaity is the subject
under discussion. It is resolved by
the house:
"That Canada and the United
Statea should apply an economic
boycott againat Japan."
The affirmative ia to be taken by
the visiting American debatera, the
negative by the British Columbians.
Two of the parliamentary body's
■tar debatera have been chosen for
the fray, Maurice Belkin, -who recently opposed two debaters from
Eastern Canada, and Struan Robertson, who haa been prominent in
debating circles here and in Victoria for aome yeara.
Since this will be the last major
debate for thia year, and aince the
aubject selected for argument ia of
auch vital importance while war-
clouds hang over the Orient, m
capacity audience is desired and
expected by the Forum executive.
Charlie Pawlett and his Commodore orchestra will be featured at
the noon hour Pep Meeting in the
Auditorium, preceding the McKechnie Cup game on Saturday.
Sengs entered In the Song and
Yell Oentsst will bs prsssnted for
the  approbation  of the  campus,
and a winner aslsetsd by populsr
vote.    Yells for ths gsme will be
rehearsed, and an Interview with
the oaptaln ef the Viotorla team
la plannsd.
The   first   game   ot   the   double-
header    program    begins    at    1.30
sharp, so there will be no tiresome
waiting after the  meet,  so everybody is asked to bring their lunch,
and  Jam  the  Auditorium  and  the
Stadium to the roof.
Soward Speaks
Prof. F. H. Soward, who has
gained widespread popularity tor
his interpretations of national and
International problems, will speak
at  13.20,  Wednesday,  ln  Arts   100.
Mr. Soward will discuss difficulties arising in Provincial-Federal
relationships and will deal with
outstanding problems ln Canada's
foreign policy.
This is the last address in the
National Conference lecture series.
Political Controversy
Ends With General
Club Formed
A political discussion club, members to Include followers of all major parties, will be formed on the
campus immediately. It was learned
The new club will take the place
of the proposed definite party
groups, banned by council three
weeks ago.
After nearly a month of agitation, etudents anxious to ase poll-
tloal groupa established on the
campus changed thslr minds, and
agreed at a eloaed meeting Tuesday evening to carry out the Studenta' Council proposal for a general political organisation.
Whether or not the new club will
be the starting point for party poli
tical discussions on the campus is
not known.
Frank Thorneloe, sponsor of the
club, and active in the now-defunct
petition for a special A.M.S. meeting, declared Thursday that, "the
flght ls Just starting."
Another   private   meeting   waa
held   on   the   oampus   Thursday
noon.    Thoae who attended were
there In rssponss to an Invitation
from Thorneloe posted on the oaf
notice  board  Wedneaday.
The invitation advised those not
genuinely interested in the proposal
to   stay   away   from   the   meeting.
Thorneloe stated that the group will
keep Itself exclusive from the student body as a whole.
For -the time being, therefore,
there will be no more agitation ln
connection with the council ban on
politics. Council members declared
Thursday that they were "glad to
see that the council decision was
found by all to be the wisest

New Room and Date
System Inaugurated
To Prevent Confusion
Dating from today, Studenta'
Counoil Is Inaugurating a new
ayatem to be observed In the application of rooms.
Previously, confusion occurred
In numerous Instancea In mix-up
of rooms and dates, and In many,
no permlaalon whatsoever had
been received for the uae of the
rooms. In order to prevent further trouble In this connection, a
few rules regarding reaervatlona
have been  formulated.
Applleatlona must be plaoed In
eounell offloe, or given to John
Brynelsen, at least 48 hours before the room Is to be used. The
day following application, a receipt must be called for, and until
the aforementioned receipt has
been obtained, oooupatlon of
rooms  are   not  permitted.
Rhodes Schola r
A GENTLEMAN and a scholar.
Cecil Rhodes, one of the great "empire-builders,"
left his fortune to the cause of sending potential scholars
to Oxford University, centre of the Empire's cultural life,
for the rounding-out process that qualified them to enter
into the life of the country as leaders of men.
Tuesday evening, a selection
committee sat ln the Senate
room of the U.B.C. Administration Building, and pondered over
the question of picking a man to
be 1938 Rhodes Scholar trom
this campus.
About a dozen nervous youtha
stood outside and waited for the
verdict. One by one they wept
ln to meet the committee and
undergo the strain ot a personal
Interview, result of which might
send them to Oxford for the next
three years.
Shortly after 10.30, the waiting
group  grew   tense  as   the   door

'land aa one of the moat popular Rhodes Seholara aent from
this oampua.
Speculation as to who would win the honor created a good deal
of discussion on the campua this year, indicating a rising interest in
the Rhodes selection.
Dave came to U.B.C. four years ago, and from that time onward
took an active part ln student lite, culminating ln hla election to
the head of Students' Council.
Last year he captained the varsity English Rugby team that captured McKechnie and Miller cup laurels, and he still acta in that
capacity. He also spent last year representing men's athletics on
Dave ls 24 years of age ... he went to publio school in England
and attended Magee High School In Vancouver . . . he has been active
in work of the Oxford Group ... he ls a member of the Historical
Society ... he Is taking a course ln history and will probably continue
his studies ln that field at Oxford.
£400 A VIAR
The Rhodes Scholar ls expected to enter into all phases of student life at Oxford, where he will remain for three years, and with a
400-pound yearly award.
Quiet and unassuming, Carey had little to say regarding his plans
for the future. Tuesday evening he was seemingly embarrassed with
the honor conferred upon him, and could only stommer a blushing
"Thank you" to those who crowded about him to extend their congratulations.
Happiest over the Rhodes selection were members of Students'
Council, who In the past few months have come to admire their

members of that body.

How much do men students spend
on haircuts, tooth paste and flowers?
What is the cost to women students of cosmetics, manicures and
These and many other questions
will be answered as soon as those
questionnaires are all ln the ballot
box at the foot of the cafeteria
Students' Council has sent out
questionnaires in attempting to
estimate the amount of money varsity  students  spend  in  Vancouver.
The reaulta, showing average
expenditure, will be aent to
downtown business men In order
to show them the value of the
University to Vanoouver commerce.
This may prove of great benefit
to the university, and all students
are urged to fill out their questionnaires and turn them In by Monday
Any student who haa not received a questionnaire through
the mall may obtain one from the
Council   Offloe.
Minor Money Bills
Passed at Council
Meeting Monday Night
Students' Council Monday evening voted its president, Dave Carey,
the sum of 60 cents to cover expenses Incurred during two trips
on A.M.S. business.
Another small money vote passed
was that of 60 cents to James Gibson, of the department of economics. Mr. Gibson billed the council
for damage to his suit from wet
paint on the stadium seats.
VICTORIA—Limitation of U.B.
C. registration, enforced on the
basis of scholaatic merit, may come
in force at the university next fall,
Hon. O. M. Weir, minister of education, forecast in the Legislative
Assembly this week.
U.B.C.  Board   of    Governors  is
considering the matter of curtailment of registration, Dr. Weir told
the house.
Mrs. Dorothy Steeves entered the
university debate  by  stating that
accommodation    should    be   made
available for all students showing
promise, by meana of bursaries.

Dr. Weir mentioned that, in addition to limitation, "other alternatives" to relieve U.B.C. overcorwd-
ing are now being considered.
Today is the day for movie-goers
on the campus. Two film classics
from the archives of the screen,
each the representative of an important art movement of the last
three decades, show in the Auditorium   at   12.15.

"It ls a shame that the limiting
factor ln the expansion of your university should be lack of money,"
declared Mr. Archie Mitchell, M.P.
for Medicine Hat, after visiting the
campus last Monday.
"You have the setting here, the
spaoe, and the people to be educated," Mr. Mitchell deolared, "In
fact, you have the finest campua
that I have ever eeen."
"I went for a drive through a
new and very beautiful subdivision
close to Vancouver. It was obvious
that large sums ot money had been
spent, and the thought occurred to
me, 'why could not a similar amount
of money be obtained as an endowment for the University?'."
Mr.  Mitchell, a former atudent
of the University of Alberta, alao
gave   the   Ubyssey   his   Ideas   regarding present-day politics.
One  of the younger members  ot
the   House   of   Commons,   he   said
"that   on   coming   into   politics,   I
found a maze of prejudices.
"These prejudices are political,
with party fighting party; racial,
with French versus English; religious, with Catholic versus Protestant; and geographical, with Marltlmes, Prairie and Pacific wrang
ling with one another. These seem
Ing Insignificant barriers are ham
pering progress.
"I   saw   that   human   Ingenuity
waa being taxed to the  limit  by
Internal   and   external   demands,
and that  the   major  problema  of
the  preaent day were  not appreciably decreasing, but were rather   Inoreaslng.
"The whole situation  indicated a
need  ot finding a foundation for a
suitable  answer.    I believe  the  solution lies in a new kind of honesty
in government, that would dissolve
these political, racial, religious and
geographical   barriers,"  he   stated.
Attacks Sundry
Campus Ills
L.S.E. Prexy Mai Brown was in
a reforming mood at council meeting Monday evening, aa he proposed that Students' Council widen
its sphere of influence to deal with
matter affecting the faculty, the
state of the university grounds, and
the hours of the library.
Brown'a proposals were:
1—That council protest under-
staffing In the deportment of
economics. (Council paaaed thla
matter over.)
2—That it be recommended that
the library stay open until 11
o'clock the two weeka previous to
Christmaa and final examinations.
8—That Mr. Lee, buildinga superintendent, be approached regarding the "deplorable" state of the
walk between the gymnasium and
the library.
4—That council Invite students
to auggeat waya of improving the
Pass System.
6—That council institute some
method of having closer contact
with Vanoouver city high schools.
Council decided to approve the
suggestion re longer hours in the
library, with Bob Smith remarking
that a recent Ubyssey editorial on
this matter "was very sensible."
Vine suggested to Brown that
the question of the "deplorable"
walk could very well be settled
without a council minute.
"You never do anything diplomatically, Mai," he advised Brown.
"That's all right by me," retorted
L.S.E. head. "I just wanted to
bring these questions before you."
Vine entered into the discussion
again when the matter of the Pass
System was under discussion. "We
don't invite criticism," he declared,
as Brown advocated that students
be asked to "co-operate" in improving the system.

We wish to apologize if the standard of the Ubyssey for
the next couple of issues is not up to that of the beginning
of this year. Apparently the faith we placed in the sources
which in September announced that there would be no Christmas examinations was unwarranted. Unfortunately, we
based the Ubyssey schedule on this premise.
The Ubyssey will run till December 10 and since advertising was sold in September up and for this date we cannot
change. About three weeks ago it was announced that examinations would be held in all years. As a result, the majority
of the staff is studying, leaving only a few to carry on.
With almost no news occurring on the campus and a
skeleton staff left to write feature stories to fill the place of
the usual happenings, the work of the editorial board is increased many times.
Written hurriedly in time stolen from exam preparation,
and therefore necessarily sketchy, the few editors who can
spare effort are trying to bring you a paper as full as possible
of interesting material.
But if our efforts have failed in some respects, bear with
us for the few issues which are left in 1937.
The discussion on the campus and the actions of students' council which have followed our last editorial advising
longer hours in the library warrants some further comment.
It has long been a problem, recognized by every student
on the campus that the early hour of 9.30 at which the library
was closed proved a distinct handicap to those students who
And it difficult or impossible to study at home, or to those
students whose research lies principally among periodicals
and books on reserve in the library.
The students' council, realizing the problem of these students, recommended at their meeting last Monday night that
library authorities should be asked to keep the reading room
open until 11 o'clock for two weeks prior to an examination
In their action council represents the opinion of the whole
student body and it is to be hoped that some more workable
solution may be arrived at in negotiations with the library
Student Outlines Aims
Of N. C. U. S. Conference
Jack Mercer, msmbsr ef the aotlve group preparing for the
National Student Oonforenoe In Winnipeg thle month, deeorlbss the
meeting aa a "Challenge to youth" In the etory below. Hla opinions
are an Interpretation of thoae held by National Conferenoe leadera,
mnt\ not of neeeaalty thoee of the Ubyssey.
The National Conference ot Canadian University Students is drawing near, and with lt the time when
350 university students will attempt
to meet a challenge being thrown
out to them.
A challenge to atudenta to realise the faot that the world haa
ahrunk and that even the difficulties of distant territories oan no
longer be Ignored.
A  knowledge   that  the  world  ia
trending once more to the past; an
exiled Mars disguised and renamed
leers once more on two continents;
the   old   game,   "Armament  Race,"
is   again   the   universal   fad;   that
persecution   of   Jews   and   heretics
revives  that old  medieval  feeling;
that history ia repeating Itself and
heading  the world for certain disaster   unless   men   come   to   their
senses and act.
The    Conference    will    challenge
students   to   break   open   the   thin
shell   of   this   1937   prosperity   and
see inside, the degradation, misery
and corruption that actually exists.
To  face  that  fact  that  1.175,739 I
people are still on direct relief in j
this country of vast wealth, that
the average wage for employed
wage-earners ls seventeen dollars a
week; that 63.7 per cent of the
population ln rural communities
have an average in come, Including
home-consumed products, of $700
per year; that the National Debt,
incurred for the great part by the
dead, is sucking the blood from the
The National Conference will
challenge students to face such
questions as these:
"la the unlveralty really giving
ua praetleal training?"    "How do
Ideals measure up to the ayatem
of 'Get and  Hold7'."    "la a solution   found   In   the   teaohlng   of
Christ?"   "What oan atudenta do
about It all?"
The  B.  C.  delegates to  the  Conference   are   challenged   to   break
away from traditions and from prejudices; to realize that they are not
being sent for an exhilarating holiday but that they are men and women with a great privilege and  a
heavy responsibility.   Level-headed-
ness,    wholehearted    endeavour,    a
grasp  of  essentials  and  an   lnfec
tlous enthusiasm are demanded.
TT/'E were sloshing serenely about
in a hot bath not half an hour
ago, listening comfortably to the
foghorns grumbling out on the cold
murky harbour and speculating on
how much longer the remnants of
last summer's sun tan could be expected to wear, when it suddenly
occurred to us that something must
be done about the future of the
Exactly what brought the matter
up ia now a bit vague, but it may
possibly have been the fact that
our right knee, partly submerged
in soapsupds, bears a faint resemblance to the Rock of Gibraltar.
Or it may have been the business
of bathing in general that did it.
Every schoolboy knows that the
Roman Empire declined and fell
because the Romans started spending too much time in the bathe.
It ia pretty safe to state that Romulus and Remus were far too busy
to waste time on auch effemlnanoy
while they were building Rome.
And it is an accepted fact that the
Elisabethan builders of the British
Empire did not risk their health by
too frequent ablutions.
Despite the pathetic camouflage
thrown up by our local anti-Fascist
press, there is no longer any doubt
that the villainous General Franco
has won the Spanish war. The reason for his success is that he waa
shrewd enough to recruit his army
from the African Moora and the
Spanish Foreign Legion, perhaps
the best example of non-fragrant
but virile homo-saplens.
In the Orient, too, the lusty Nipponese are undeniably (Professor
Soward to the contrary) knocking
spots off the ancient and super-
civilised Chinese, who, you may recall, And even the scent of Anglo-
Saxons repugnant.
The moral of all this Is that
democracy, civilization, and hot
baths are all right in their place,
but they weaken a race's virility.
England, for example, like ancient
Rome, has bathed herself into such
decadence that only 500,000 out of
10 million young men of fighting
age will volunteer for military
training for home defense. It looks,
therefore, as if it will fail to the
lot of us barbarous Gauls from tho
provinces to provide the lacking
masculinity to hold the Empire together. That was a good book Beverly Nichols wrote about armament
makers and pacifism, and everybody certainly took his advice. Only
we wish he would write another one
telling us where we go from here.
Meanwhile, until the period of
national emergency is concluded, it
behooves our manhood to learn the
great leaaon of history and not take
too many baths.

all the stoicism of doomed men having a last chat in the death cell.
There were intriguing stacks of
"Esquire" and "Life" all about. (Faculty is only human after all.) There
were packs of cards, and even a
game of "4-B-6." But the boya
were not very interested, and when
they played or read they did it

Dear Sir:
I heartily agree with your recent
editorial re "Bad Ventilation." My
only criticism ls that you neglected
to mention the Library. Probably
you haven't been tbere for ao long
that you have forgotten ita horrors.
I personally captured a Beat there
twice ln the past month, but on
both occasions my success was
thwarted by the equatorial temperatures which promptly put me to
It is pathetic, really, to watch
the agony on the faces of Library
inhabitants an they lean panting
and perspiring over their books,
wondering whether to rush out for
a breath of air or to stay ln their
hard won Beats and lose consciousness. Those staunch British colonels bearing the white man's burden
in the outpostB ot distant Nigeria
suffer no more from the heat than
students frequenting the Library.
The first thing U.B.C. knows, there
will be some serious epidemics ot
tropical diseases wasting our youth.
If there Is so Infernally much
heat going to waste that the campus power plant must roaat ua all
alive without half trying, wouldn't
it be a good idea to heat the Stadium, week days and all. It would
be a dandy plaoe to study If lt
was warm, and would serve for a
lecture room it necessary. The
building superintendent might even
lay a few hundred feet of ateam
pipe under the parking area next
winter to keep radlatora from freezing up. And did lt never occur to

heated sidewalks would never require the assistance ot snow shovels T

TJNION College was in a ferment
the other evening, when two
sirens in a big sedan circled around
the driveway for nearly an hour,
honking and calling to the scholars
to leave monasticism's cloisters and
have their fling.
A distress call from the principal's office brought the gallant
Constable Orchard to the rescue in
the nick of time and the menace
was removed. But, oh my goodneas,

'T'HE lowest bit of punning we
have heard perpetrated in
many a moon came from Vernon
McKenzie, one time McLean's editor, world traveller, foreign correspondent, and now Dean of Jour-

At the beginning ot the 1921-22
term the Ubyssey reported that a
new faculty position had been created, that of Dean ot Women. The
new position was flrst filled by the
present dean. Miss M. L. Bollert,
who came trom Toronto Unlveralty.
At the end of the preceding term
this had been promised. Students
had still not got their Department
of Commerce, which they had agitated for.
A memorable Innovation appeared in the Ubyssey November 17,
1921, the flrst Much-a-Muck page.
This college humor department has
appeared in almost every year's
paper but the present.
A year after the Muck page appeared, the Ubyssey was banned
from a local high school because of
Its  "quality  of humor."
At the same time that this page
appeared the semi-annual Literary
Supplement also made its initial
bow to the university world. This
supplement haa been discontinued
of late because ot the non-appearance ot student efforts which are
necessary to make up the section.
The Ubyssey played a very important part in the 1922 "On to
Point Orey" Btudent campaign. A
day or two after the term began an
"extra" was published, informing
the students of the results ot the
work ot the student committee
which had been working throughout the summer, getting the support of local service clubs.
Wednesday, Oct. 25, was "Varsity
Canvass  Day."    From  the  instruction sheet  published  by  the  Publications Board we learn that every
home in Vancouver waa personally
contacted by a student. The climax
of the campaign came on Saturday
of the same week, when the "Student Pilgrimage" made its way, with
floats and banners, from the centre
of town to the Point Orey site.
On   November   9,   the   Oovernment voted $1,600,000 for the eon-
atruetlon  of the   permanent  and
semi-permanent buildings at the
Point Orey aite.
1923 also saw a competition, ar-
discussed the European situation
last Monday night,
England, it seems, is full of
Basque refugee children from the
Spanish war zone, and the problem
of housing for the children haa
become serious. One refugee camp
was presented with a moving picture projector and a large tent to
serve as theatre by a philanthropic
gentleman of the Jewish persuasion. The government commissioner, however, objected to the structure as a Are hazard, since there
was only one exit.
"Whatl" demanded Mr. Bernstein. "You mean I can't put all
my Basques in one exit!"
Personally, we don't believe it.
ranged on the campua, by the Publications Board under the direction
of the Minister of Mines. Students
were aaked to fill ln maps of the
Point Orey site, naming streets,
parks, boulevarda, etc. These namea
could vary from chemical prooeases
to names  ot prominent people.
In the same year aeveral new
columns appeared which lasted for
a few years and then disappeared.
The flrst ot theae was the Literary
Column which printed such readable literary attempts of the students as lt received.
Another was "Freshmen — Learn
These!" Under this heading were
one or two yells and perhaps a
song which Freshmen learned — or
else. Original jokes and epigrams
appeared under the title of "Kara-
pus  Krax."
The    new    buildings   at    Point
Orey were completed In the summer of 1928.    The  Ubyssey celebrated  the  establishment of the
looatlon   by  enlarging  to   a   five-
column, four-page newapaper published twlee weekly.
In many ot the issues appearing
ln this term are found, mixed with
pralae  for the new  buildings, pro- ■
testa from the students on the fet-1
terlng   regulations    that   appeared'
along with the new buildings.
For Instance: Studenta were permitted to use only the basement
entrances to the Library; smoking
in the buildings was strictly fofbid-
den; stack privileges restricted the
general use ot the Library.

"There can be no world war before 1040 at least, and by that time
even the moat thick skulled politician may realise that war does not
pay," stated Vernon MoKensie, one
time editor ot McLean's and present Dean ot Journalism at the University of Washington, before a
young people's leoture at St. An-
drew's-Wesley auditorium Monday
An experienced world traveller,
and former foreign correspondent
for several American news syndicates, Dean MoKensie admitted
that Europe's future was alarming,
that the armament race must inev
ltably lead ua to some type ot war,
but admitted that Britain haa no
alternative at the present moment.
"Although the present British cab-
Inet'a policy is definitely In favor
of re-armament, I believe they will
continue to accept inaulta from foreign powers until there Is no further alternative to war. The entire
Empire muat think alike before
England would take auch a step,
and such countries aa Ireland and
parts of Canada will require a great
deal of perauading."
"We are becoming Immunised to
war," Dean MoKensie declared.
"There have been at leaat six potential provocations of war alnoe 1031,
•nd ln every event the British government haa refuaed to become involved."

Literary Forum
Members Attack
The Professions
Co-eds Put Strong Case
In Encounter Against
Men Speakers Tuesday
Two members of the Literary
Forum Tueaday noon proved, tbat
deoplte their comparative lack of
experience, they were well able to
stand up to Parliamentary Forum
They argued the afflramatlve case
for the resolution, "that the professions constitute a bar to reform."
The Parliamentary Forum waa
represented by Boh Smith and Don
MacOlll, with Odetta Hicks and
Margaret Flndlay In opposition.
Odetta Hicks, flrst speaker, emphasised the tact that the fundamental aim of profeaslonal associations ls a selfish one. They originated, she said, from crafts and
guilds formed for the protection of
their members.
She cited the Health Insurance
controveray in this profession as
an example of profeaslonal selfishness.
In rsply, Bob Smith mentioned
the support given by the msdleal
prefeaslen to eueh philanthropic
Institutions aa the John Hopkins
He apoke of the benefits received
by the publio from doctors' work in
preventive medicine and* in research concerning auoh diseases as
tuberculosis and cancer.
Referring to the Health Inauranoe
Act In England, he said (hat it had
remained unchanged since it waa
flrat put through In 1911.
Margaret Findlay continued the
argument by pointing out that this
waa the very fact she and her colleague were attempting to make
"Political   grafting   by   professional men," ehe aald, "la one of
the etrengeat bsrrlers against re*

oan bs no reform."
According to this speaker the traditional    professional    attitude    of
conservatism is a serious obstacle
in the way of constructive reform.
Don    MacOlll   emphaalsed   the
ethleal aapeet of professional aa*
soelatlons.    Duty and aervlee are
the aim of men  engaged  In  professional work, he aald.
This Is demonstrated by the tact
that the   formation of the  Medical
Society benefits not the doctors, but

Tutt was aghast. Farey had Just
emptied hla automatic into the

And there the weird doctor stood—

smiled at Farey. Then he slowly
drew a book from within his voluminous robes.
"Ah, Farey," he hissed. "When
I was a freshman I learned that

Farey groaned apprehensively.
Chang drew a wing-jlng and advanced slowly.
"StopI" yelled J. Msredlth Tutt.

"Sitting Bull," gasped Chang Suey. And he dashed hurriedly out
to the parking lot to see If his limousine was facing the wrong way,
and if he had his registration slip
ln the wheel.
Farey  and   Tutt  clung   closely
to Sitting Bull, and hurriedly left.
The   yellow  roadater atlll   threw
the    radiance   of   Ita   headllghta
over  the  Caf.     And  from   somewhere In the darkness, from the
direction   of  the   Fie   Csp  table,
there oame a voloe:
"Vou moved the blue one!     You
did so!"
The chamber of Nine was nearly
dark.    Half the candles had burned
out.     Vyle  Line was  on  the  floor.
"I  tell   you,  we'll   have  to  get

down    here    In    the    dark,   with

Farey and Tutt entered  by way
of the secret door.    The remainder
of the Nine turned.
"Who is this?"
Farey stammered. "Oh, Tutt, you
know. Good chap. He's going to
help us get the plana back."
Tutt    advaneod    sternly.    Hie

"It'a no use," moaned Drynulson.

"That's   It!"   cried   Tutt.     "The
Arts Letter Rack, of oourse."
The Nine, led by Tutt, ran hurriedly out, and rummaged through
the letter rack. The papers fell
out, and clouds of dust enveloped
"Here's something," said Farsy.
"It's addrssssd to Lex MoKlllop,

He hastily opsned It. The eard
read: "The Quadrilateral Club Invites you to an At Home to be
held . . ."
Farey    ahuddered.      "And    to
think   I  missed  It!"
Just then Tutt gave a cry of triumph.    The plans!
The Nine seized them, and slunk
back to their secret chamber. But
when they entered, powerful hands
seized them. When they had been
bound, they were turned around.

2-1 Decision From "Rising Tide"
Wanderers, James Bay
Well Represented
Tomorrow will witness another
struggle for the possession of the
McKechnie Cup, symbolical of Lower Mainland rugby supremacy. Thia
time-honored trophy was donated
by Chancellor McKechnie in 1893
and is battled for each year by
three teams—Varsity, a Vancouver
and a Victoria rep. team. Since
Varsity entered into the fray in
1920 they have won it five times,
last year being the flrst win since
This year there will be a series
of six games, consisting of a double
round robin between the three
So far, by reason of their victory
over Varsity, the Vancouver reps
hold a two-point margin, but it is
still anybody's series.
The team that Varsity ia sending into the fray in the current
aerlea, has on Ita roster a large
number of rookies, but what they
lack In polish they more than
make up for in the famous Thunderbird flght.
Thia year'a edition of the Victoria "Crimson Tide" have plenty
on the ball, too. This season Victoria haa enjoyed one of Its beet
years In rugger. Competition for
berths on the rep. team has been
keen and the selection committee
has been burning plenty of midnight oil trying to figure out the
lineup. In fact more than 80
candidates had to work out before
the moguls before a decision was
After prolonged discussions the
committee has selected the following players for tomorrow's tilt:
Jack Ferguson, fullback; Bill
Brown, Harry Barber, Ronny Mc-
Connan, "Busz" Brown, Bill Hal-
kett ,and Wally Stipe in the backfleld; "Buck" Buckler, Ian Ada-id,
Campbell Forbes, Cyril Doheny,
Bill Corbin, Doug Hatch, Bill
Thompson, and Bert Simpson, forwards.
Of these men, eight come from
the Oak Bay Wanderers, seven from
the James Bay Athletic Association,
with one army and one navy star.
Trussel, Orme Dier, Giguet, and one
other man yet to be chosen.
A University team, probably to
be picked from among these men,
will represent thia campus at the
Shriners* Carnival in Seattle towards the end of December.
Abbott House "Rising Tide," a
game little band of soccermen, who
wended their fog-ridden way to the
campua Wednesday afternoon, had
their unbeaten reoord smaahed by
the narrowest of marglna at the
hands of a somewhat weakened atudent aggregation.
Mlauhara and Postsr soored
first-half tallies for the collegians
to give the Blue and Gold a 8-0
lead at ths half. Aftsr the Interval, however, the Rising Tide began to awell and aa darkneas
gathered, aome elever forward
combinations led up to the visitors' lone tally, a close-In ahot by
inside-left Davis. The laat few
mlnutea were apent In a oommon
hunt for the ball by both teams
aa Old Man Night deaoended with
Inoreaalng  rapidity.
The students were minus Captain
Dan Quayle and star inside-left
Todd, while one or two members
of the Rising Tide got lost in the
downtown  fog-belts.
Saturday next, the campusmen
will stack up against the league-
leading Service Taxlmen at McBride Park and, If recent form is
anything to go on, lt should be a
battle well worth seeihg. Although
the students came a cropper when
the two teams met before in the
first game of the season, several
new players have been discovered
since then and there ls a good
chance of another Varsity win to
add to the ever-growing string.
Doug Todd, injured in the game
with Maccabees, will definitely be
back in the lineup and the inclusion of this brilliant little forward
raises campus hopes considerably.
Oame time is,  as usual,  2.30.
The Juniors will meet C.C.F. at
Wilson Park at the same time.
Playing three short, the U.B.C.
grass hockey team defeated eleven
Varsityites 2-0 in a league game
Wednesday at the University field.
Outstanding work was done by
the U.B.C. defence players, especially Marjorie Learning, in limiting
their fellow co-eds to one shot at
the goal. Gerry Armstrong scored
both the markers.
