Dr. Clark
Vancewer Institute Heare of
Marvels  ef  Synthesis  and
With a fJtasantly modulated volet
to assist him, Dr. R. A Clark, F.R.-
F.C, head of the department of
chemlttry, * gaVt an address on
"Chemistry in tho Service of'Man,"
at the mttting of tht Vancouver Institute held In Arts 100 on Saturday
Tha tpoaker began his discussion
with tht declaration that tht field of
chtmittryfllti "in tiie heavens above,
tht earth beneath, and the waters
under the earth," Ht sketched rap-i
idly tht achievements in thia branch
of Science that have bean accomplished with reference to tht drug,
perfume, and dye industries.
Dr. Clark, whoso knowledge of organic chemistry made hit lecture
graphically Interesting, stressed the
importance of formulae for Uluetra-
tlng tho arrangement of atoms in
matter. In humorous vein, he showed
that care mutt be taken in building
up compounds, or "a melon might
end up In a lemon."
Chemical Clocks
Some amustmtnt was created at
the meeting by what the lecturer
termed his "chemical alarm-clocks."
These "clocks" were largo flasks containing Uquld which waa supposed
to change colour at a certain time,
according to pre-arranged calculations. In the end, however, the chronometers required some coaxing in
order to give the desired affect.
He also drew the attention of his
audience to the fact that artificial
drugs and perfumes have resulted
from research In chemistry, and he
claimed that the synthetic product
is nearly always superior to the natural product.
Good Health It Chemical
"AU growing things are chemical
laboratories, and good health is a
co-ordination of all such 'laboratories'," asserted the lecturer as he attacked his subject from a new angle.
His remarks on the effect of chemicals, for stimulating the growth of
shrubs and vegetables, were Ulus-
trated by slide*. Dr. Clark discussed
the importance of chemistry as regards its use in curing bodily ills,
and he described some aspects of
the advance that Science has made
In the field of the vitamins.
Artificial Hen's Eggs
Recent discoveries In chemistry
provided the conclusion for the
spaeker's address. Quinine, anaesthetics, radium, glass, and anti-toxins
or serums, were listed as examples
of material value derived from synthetic processes. In addition, gasoline from the distillation of coal,
ethyl- alcohol from wood, and Ice
from solid carbon dioxide were noted
as gifts of this particular branch of
Science. Artifical leather, synthetic
hen's eggs, and lacquers were topics
that the genial doctor disposed of in
a humorous manner.
"Synthetic chemistry has never lost
« battle with natural problems,"
quoted Dr. Clark. He admitted that
over-production was obvious In certain chemical Industries today, but
he pointed out that a "moratorium"
In other industries would undoubtedly retard world progress.

Prof. Soward
It happened ln History 20.
Somebody had road c report
of Lord Durham which mentioned the "natural English
"What do you mean by
that?" queried Prof. Soward.
The girl who road the report wasn't quite sure what
she meant, but thought that
"English people were naturally conceited."
Prof. Soward turned to ttu-
■ dent Oeorge Cockburn and

Dr, Robertson To
Speak On Bible
On Wednesday in Arts 204 at 12:10
the regular open meeting of the
V.C.U. will be addressed by Dr. W.
M. Robertson, minister of the large
Metropolitan Tabernacle. Dr. Robertson is a well known and excellent
preacher of this city. His subject
on Wednesday will be "The Bible—
the Book that Bites." All students
on the campus are cordially welcome
to come and hear this interesting
topic portrayed in the speaker's usual
forceful and eloquent manner.
Arts '33 class fees wUl be collected
on Wednesday and Thursday at noon
at the bottom of the Caf. stairs.
Everybody is asked to pay their fees
as soon as possible. Those who paid
8 dollars in the first term may obtain a rebate of $1.00 by producing
their receipts at this time.
Junior Joust,
Haltod On The
Dot, Jure Many
That the Junior Prom held Friday
night hi the Commodore was popular
was indicated by tht chorus of
groans which want up whtn two
dances were cut from tht program in
order to finish the party at twelve.
Although the party was successful
financially and from the point of a
goodly attendance of Junior "draws,"
a ftw sophomore* and frethmtn
dared to inject their unwanted per-
sonagtt, but this fact waa compensated for by the very small number
of "crashes.''
Dancing began at 8 o'clock, and
although the Juniors would have
been welcome tiU one, the be-
gowned overlords of student affairs
decreed that, If there was to be any
more fun, it would of necessity take
place somewhere else. It is feared
that the Mighty Ones enjoyed themselves.
At ten o'clock Ole Olsen and his
boys went on the air, and featured
"Hail, U.B.C." as one of their numbers. EarUer In the evening much
applause had been rendered as they
played a composition of one of the
members of Arts '34, Jack Emerson.
Supper was served cabaret style at
Patron* Dr. and Mr*. Shrum enjoyed themselves thoroughly, as did
Patroness Dean Bollert, who chatted
at the executive table with Vice-
president Olive Norgrove, Myrtle
Beatty, Jack Shaneman, and Nathan
Mystery Now
Cleared Up
The deep and deathly alienee of
the Ubyssey office on Press Day was
broken last week by the voice of an
associate editor asking a question.
"How," he said to the news manager, "do you spell ubyaseyquious?"
"Huh?" said the news manager,
who only knows how to news manage.
"You know—ubysseyqulous. How
do you spell It?'' persisted the assoc.
Deciding that It was not after all
an effort at Mertoning the news manager ransacked her brain and produced the foUowing: "O-b-s-e-q-u-i-
"Will that do?" she inquired, anxious to please.
"That's fine," said the assoc,
Came the day when the Ubyssey
is delivered Into the hands of Its
readers. A story in it referred to
the topic of a certain speech being
"obsequious." Turmoil arose In the
mind of the news manager and also
of the English Department. What
did it all mean?
Pounced upon, the assoc. said,
"Well, you know what I meant—all-
round sort of thing."
"Uwah! You mean ubiquitous!"
howled the news manager, thinking
that she would better have stuck to
news managing, and wondering how
this could be smoothed over with
the English Department.
A Pub Dictionary has been now
InataUed, for the especial benefit of
associate edlton.
That work accomplished on the stadium project hag yielded
students full value for their money waa the unanimous opinion
reached by the committee investigating stadium expenditures.
This conclusion was adopted by motion of the Alma Mater Society without discussion Monday noon.
The abgence of responsibility on the part of Univeraity
authorities to Council for disbursements was held by the committee to be the reason for the misunderstanding which had
rite, which would be ready for use
by tht fall of 19)4. Jt tht tteond
rtport waa adopted HSOO would bt
taved, and the field might be uwd
by the fall of thi. year, Oeorge Sinclair explained. Should the less expensive plan be adapted, however,
there would be less chance of ensuring a first class field.
Too Much Play
Sinclair made it dear that tbe
stadium rite should only be used for
match-play, not for practice games.
Ht also emphasized that student-;
might expect heavy subsequent expenditure, possibly only one fifth of
the ultimate sum necessary having
been disbursed to date,
' Jftc-uded In tiie'facte presented in
the second Half of the report, was
the declaration lhat if the stadium
is ever to remain in first c!a__ shape
it must receive continuous attention
especially during the  cummer.
Concerning the new fence around
the stadium site, all rumours as to
unsatisfactory fulfilment of tho con-
tinct were exploded ty the Committee's report, and Ihe definite statement was made that every condition
of the contract had been fully

If ^Silence" Is
Golden, Library's
Losing Money Fast!
Preserving the silence the breaking
of which caused all tht trouble, authorities refused to give the Ubyssey
a ttatement concerning the still (noon
Monday) absent Library silence lectern.
Warning had been issued by the
president of A.M.S. that failure to return tho missing column would result in the Library bring closed to
all comers from 9 a.m. Monday until
tho end of the current week. The
Library Is stUl to all intents and
purposes functioning.

Among tho recommendations of the
Committee were tho foUowing: that
aU student employment on tho stadium site should cease, that a permanent committee should be elected
to take charge of all subsequent disbursement and that the A.M.S. should
retain full control over these disbursement*.
Howard Beads Rtport
As presented by Ronald Howard the
first atctlon of the report contained
a fuU statement of all moneys expended on the rite for labour and
tools but the distribution was only
submitted by auditors without responsibility for their accuracy.
Vouchers, payrolls and rimilar evidence had been produced to back
the auditors' information, however,
Howard declared.
Two Alternatives
The second half of the Committee's
report contained detailed information as to engineering facts. There
are two possibilities in connection
with these facts, either the Lazenby
report of last November rcay be
adopted with minor additions or else
a new series of recommendations
may be accepted.
Tlie Lazenby report would invo've

U.B.C. Awarded
Aerial Victory
MUt Owen has received correspondence from both the CNRV radio
station and the Edmonton station to
the effect that the Varrity debasing
team was awarded a ten-to-one victory over the Alberta oratorical representative* in the recent radio debates.
Although the bulk of tlie written
comment came from the immediate
vicinity of the two broadcasting
centaes, there were letters from
Washington, Utah, California, Oregon, Texas and several other northern United States.
The letters submitted contained a
diversity of comments and criticisms,
but the majority of them concurred
in awarding the Varrity representatives the decision.
The University of Alberta is holding a radio debate with the University of Saskatchewan over the CNRV
network on Friday, March 3, at 8:45
P.S.T. The question for debate is:
"Resolved that the establishment of
a Central Bank is In the best interests of Canada." Alberta wUl take
the affirmative. They have asked
the U.B.C. debaters to select three
judges in Vancouver to listen In to
the debate and then to communicate
their decision to the radio station
for   immediate  announcement.
A state of anarchy pravalla at pre**

C. P. SUva-Wblte won the O. O.
McGeer Cup for the Anglican College Oratorical Contest on Friday
night. His subject, "Music: Some
Problems of Today," was weU received by the large gathering of
friends and was recommended by
the judges for its form and content |
Presenting the judge's decision, Dr.
Sedgewick gave some very helpful
criticism to the speakers stressing the
necessity of familiarity with the subject, order, speaking ability, and
Mr. John L. Anderson acted as

the final examination rush starts.
RueDela "Pay"
And Bond Street
For Players'Club
Is the Players' Club going to put
on a gripping mystery drama early
next month or are they inaugurating
a policy of spring fashion shows?
Maybe "Alibi" has a hidden meaning
in that direction. According to current report* the women are to be
clothed In garments so stunning that
they send the director Sid Risk and
those on the costumes committee into
a state of suspended animation every
time they look at them, the costumes, not the women, although their
charm quite probably has a lot to
do with it.
As for the men the latest from
Bond Street Is none too good for
them. There have been rumours to
the effect that there might even be
some striped waist-coats in evidence.
If it wasn't public knowledge that
the action of the play is to be sufficiently bloodthirsty to satisfy even
the most thrill-loving freshette we
might suspect the male characters
of trying to join in the fashion
The scenery will be the most ambitious effort of the club so far. The
main scene Is the living room of a
large country home in England complete with all the traditional atmosphere of an old world setting. The
usual efficient committees are hard
at work seeing that no small detail
that might detract from the effect of
the play ia ommitted. All that is
necessary to assure the complete success of the play now is the Interest
and support of the student body.

•looted a committee of Ave to go "fully into
the stadium question." The students have
heard the result of their GaiganeUean labours
and the wailinga of the infant Gargantua.
There ia not an exact parallel in this cage, however, for Gaiganelle produced gomethlng
worthwhile. The committee have come out
of their confinement with nothing new. They
have merely re-iterated Council's recommendations of a month ago with the exception
that they alao adviaed the expenditure of
1275.00 for manure, lime, etc., which would
probably have been recommended by the engineer in charge in any event.
Now we can assure those who had heard
rumours (we ourselveg never heard any) that
there are no rumourg. Everything is now as
clear as daylight.
The question still remains, however, as to
how the money is to be raised. Caution money
waivers have been authorized and printed. It
only requires two and one-half minutes to walk
up to the Accountant's Office and sign one.
The theft of the silence sign from the main
foyer of the University Library calls to mind
the repeated attempts that have been made
to filch this dignified piece of furniture from
the hall of learning.
Since the matter has been turned over to
the Council for sleuthing, perhaps we should
make no comment on the matter until such
time as definite results are obtainable. The
matter calls to mind, however, the anomolous
situation which has existed on the campus for
the last umpteen years.
We have both a discipline committee and
an honor system; we have policemen yet we are
pledged to the performance of our duty! Despite our honor system we are bound to report
any breaches of the honor system, which we
are all pledged to observe, to members of the
Discipline Committee.
Either the one or the other should be discontinued. We suggest that the Honor System be dropped. Our sojourn in these halls of
learning has so cynicized our outlook that we
have reluctantly come to the conclusion that
the number of students who are capable of
acting according to the precepts of an honor
system is less than one half of one per cent.
For ten years the University has had an ard-
eatt and active friend in the person of Mr. R.
J. Cromie of the Vancouver Sun.
That Mr. Cromie will continue to be a friend
to the University we do not doubt. But we do
state that unless considerable discussion is
created by his talk tomorrow, he will feel that
his time has been wasted, not because he was
badly received, but because the students have
failed to examine his arguments and criticize
In an article in the Sunday Province of a
few weeks ago, it was stated that University
students are too lethargic—not radical enough.
Here is a chance to hear some ideas which are
considered radical by some people, and to discuss them informally.
We knew Spring had not arrived despite
what some optimists sang last week, because
tried the quad drinking fountain.
For some reason I have had a difficult time
finding anything to columnize about this week.
Apes declares that he is laboring under the
same disadvantage. Contributions, which
flowed so freely a few weeks back, are merely
dribbling now. Of course, I do not depend
upon these capricious things; for that matter,
neither does he. Lean days find him and Peter
drooped industriously over the Pub. typewriter
that writes two colors at once—this whimsical
attribute seeming especially to attract Peter.
1 But I depend largely upon campus events
to fill my space, and there has been a dearth of
them this week, or else I afti growing dull without the needle-eyed assistance of little Mr.
O. O., who, alas, went the way of all cuts when
the column took a raise.
Then, too, "Cap Fits," to say nothing of "Cat
Kits," haa deprived me of another avenue of
expression, and my chatty details are no hell
at all compared to the spice and vigor of the
two above-mentioned tacketa.
Moreover, laat time I made what I thought
waa a lively and timely comment upon a book
I had read, the Senior Editor roared at me till
I shuddered my way from the office. The
Senior Editor haa the moat engaging way of
going Berserk as the strain of Press Daya
wears him down, but you never know where
the next coffee cup is going to land.
However, there are still certain obscure
signs of living organisms stirring slightly in
their world of torpid reptilian life. For instance, by the time thia is out, an Alma Mater
meeting will actually have come off—after
foiling me and the Assignment Book for three
times running. I presume we now know just
what happened to that eighteen thousand. So
what? 0 — 0
Then, again, this very day a WUS pep meet
has been scheduled. Wonder if the boys will
give the co-eds the support which the latter
loyally accorded to the English Rugby squad
—on Friday, anyway?
0 — 0
The question of who murdered Sir William
Talbot is beginning to agitate the campus, as
the Players' Club proceeds with a serious
routine of rehearsals and preparations for
"Alibi." Most popular remark one can now
make to a thespian—"Sure Alibi a ticket."
0 — 0
I hear that a certain high school paper has
been instructed by the principal to discontinue
its gossip column (which practically constituted the paper), I make no comparisons,
and wouldn't know what it signified anyway.
Even Sport sports a co-slummist nowadays.
(I can juggle with esses, too.» What with Muck
and all, there's heavy competition in this line.
"Resporter" is good stuff, but I wish he
wouldn't be plural; it confuses me. I mean,
isn't one enough? Or do I mean that he is
unique? Or perhaps I'd better pass it over
The McNoose Flashes are the funniest
things I have seen on the Muck Page for a long
time. And the Brock-Clark imitation of
Groucho and Harpo Marx was a good deal
trickier entertainment than the last professional act we saw at a Pep Meeting, though that
was good.
And here's a very Occasional Observation.
Ye Berserk Senior Ed. very nearly went that
way when he observed that Luke had "cut"
her colyum at the end of the above paragraph
with the brief note "Carry on with 'Ubyssey-
quitous' story. I've run out of dope." But it
so happens that the Ubysseyquitous story had
already been "set" in the conventional one-
clumn type, and will therefore be useless—and
as Luke has hied away to try and prove to lago
that Crime Does Not Pay, it is up to ye Sen.
Ed. to disprove her statement that there's no
dope floating around. Just let me at this column for a whole day!
Did you know that: at 10 Mondawning the
Silence Sign had not been returned to thej
Castle . . . and that a certain Frosh went poetic on the subject ... if only Mrs. W's little ]
boy W could see that pome . . .and that Jack J
Emerson's song is no longer wordless . . . and
that Hal King has the tune, but not the words,
and would like to publish "Hail, U. B. C." this
week . . . and that this Pub of ours will show
Mark Council and his Budgeteers just how the
ancient game of hit-the-hoop should be played
at 2 today . . . and that my vote for Broadway's theme song is "Just a Little Street Where
Old Friends Cheat" . . . such is life on the
Great Plight Way . . .
The fact that spring is Indubitably
present once again was attested to
by no less than four couples counted

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The letter of Mr. Brand In a late
issue of the Ubyssey defended the
recent art exhibit in a way that
would have convinced anyone who
had not aeen the pictures.
To make my point clear and to
use Mr. Brands'illustration one might
consider four clasaea of pictorial leg*.
(1) the realistic representation of a
particular model, (2) the Ideal human leg built up from the artist's
observations of numerous model*,
(3) Mr. Brand's denatured leg, (4)
the leg displayed by the artists of
the recent exhibition.
Mr. Brand in the first place makes
too much of  (1), which haa never
think, had preatlge In any period
of art. But his main error is in confusing (3) and (4), shutting his eyes
to tht symptons of elephantiasis,
housemaid's knee, or rickets which
make lt rather a bad rendering of
(1) than what he takes it for. As
a specific example of' this log I recall ont picture of tht exhibition, the
one in which a girl, hi tho agonies
of a dislocated right shoulder, has
hooked her toes about the rockers
of her chair. In treating the left
leg, tho artitt hat, I suppost, a right
to and it with a denatured left foot.
But why dots ht end it with an obvious right foot?
In such comments at I am attacking the frltndt of the now movement art doing it poor service. When
we toll ite exponent* that we know
what they are trying to express and
fori that they havt txpratstd it, thty
go on tacking right feet on left ltga,
whtraaa If wt frankly dtclara our
confusion of mind they may at laat
produce a real denatured leg. I shall
be glad to ate one.
Exchange Views
After month* of research I've discovered what the Toronto University
law suit wo about. And it's hot
news . A student sued "The Varrity"
for libel claiming ho was misquoted.
That's something to ponder on. Tha
Associated Pre** reported with amazement some months ago that a reporter can be libeled. But a student
is a notch or two below a reporter,
and apparently thinks he can be
libeled, too.
Such conceit! But after this, don't
quote me.
We aren't the only ones with
troubles. The "lame duck" session
of the S.A.A. at the University of
Western Ontario brought to light
qiute a number. Among them wire
the three age-old problem, the crashing problem, the initation problem,
and the parking problem.      v

Did you ever wonder what the
joke was when a group of girl* join
their sweet voices in raucous laughter? Well, you can tell by the tone,
according to the Xaverlan Weekly's
report on some Vassar girls. It runs
as follows :"Hee hee," trlckishly
gained victory; "Hey hey," pure-
hearted laugh; "Hoo hoo," contempt;
"Ho ho," self-exultation; "Ha ha,"
disgust. There's no comment on the
one you can't spell.
The situations which struck the
Vassar girls funniest were these; one
laughed long and loud at her roommate sitting down hard on a chair,
and "hurting the end of her spine";
another thought It amusing that escorts spend over a million dollars
taking girls to the Yale-Harvard
game; other* laughed to be polite,
and still others "because I felt a
little silly anyway."
It all comes out in a thesis on girls'
laughter by one, Polyxene Kambour-
opoulou, which amusts me.

Vancouver Scores Two Tries and a Convert
to Win By Score of 8-0
Owen, Pearson. Young and Stewart Show
To   Advantage
Varsity lost its second straight McKechnie Cup match of
the season 8*0, when they engaged in a mud battle with Vancouver Rep. on Saturday afternoon at Brockton Point.
Oood Rugby waa impossible. Playing under an incessant
downpour of rain which turned the field into a quagmire, both
teams trenched through six inches of mud for a full hour, hopelessly trying to handle or pass with any degree of accuracy.
It was Juat another tough game for Varsity to lose. The
Blue and Oold tarily had thtir thartf
of tho play, and had waather condl-
tion* bran ravtrttd thtrt might have
been a different atory to tell.
Van. kicked off and after a serum
down rushed tho pity to tho Varrity
lint whtrt Art Mtrctr clewed with
a kick to touch. Milt Owen wat
away on the wing but was forced out.
Esson Young started a dribbling attack which waa stopped five yards
from the Vancouver lint. Klnnlmont
secured from the loose and passed
to Pinkham who was stopped by Elton Young. After an exchange of
kicks In center field, Vancouver
dribbled to the Blue and Gold ten-
yard line where Pinkham gained poa-
station,_ and went over, but was
called for offside play.
Vancouver Seortt
The Bep. pressed again, but Cleveland relieved pressure with a fine
kick to touch. A few minutes later
• Vancouver started a forward movement which ended by Boxborough
crossing the line for the initial try.
Marion made a fine effort to improve, the ball Just falling short by
Inches. The Students tried hard to
even the count in the last moments
of the half, but lacked the necessary
punch to go over.
Vancouver began the second half
with a nice three-run. Rogers
cleared. Roxborough broke away,
but was brought down hard by
Brand. Varsity forced the play to
the Rep. Une, but the latter were
right back. Soon after Art. Mercer
was kicked In the leg and had to
leave the field for a few minutes.
Klnnlmonfs Play
Klnnlmont pulled off the fastest
play of the game when he dribbled
fifty yards to fall on the ball for a
try. Pete Wilson converted to make
the score 8-0. From this time on,
Varsity repeatedly had Vancouver
penned In their own twenty-five, but
each tune the Rep. squad ran tbe
ball back Into safer territory.
With but ten minutes to go, Esson
Young was forced to leave the game
when he was kicked in the back following an attempt to stop an opposing scrum attack. In the dying moments of the game Vancouver were
compelled to touch-down twice to
save a score. The game finished with
the Studenta fighting desperately to
cross the Rep. line.
The Inability of the Var-ity scrum
to heel in the second half no doubt
had a bearing on the result of the
game. Only once did the scrum get
the ball out in this period. MUt
Owen and Esson Young turned In
by far the best performances for
the Student*, while Harry Pearson
and Max Stewart did the best work
In the loose .
The line-up: O. Brand, M. Owen,
H. Cleveland, Alan Mercer, Esson
Young, Art. Mercer, Ken. Mercer, J.
Ruttan, Max Stewart, B. Morris,
Bobby Gross, E. Senkler, Vic Rogers,
D. Brown, H. Pearson.

Take U.B.C.
Playing under a drizzling downpour the Varrity Senior Canadian
Rugby gridders went down to a 6-5
defeat against the North Vancouver
All Blacks, at the Varsity soccer
field, 2:30 Saturday.    ■
In the first quarter the AU Blacks,
taking advantage of their superior
weight in the line, carried the pigskin far Into the U.B.C. territory. It
was while ln this position a Uttle
more speed and accuracy by the
Varrity fullbacks might have averted
a safety touch for one point for the
boys in black. The period ended
with a score of 3-0 for North Van.
In the second canto Varsity took
the offensive, which resulted in a
beautifully completed forward pass
from Ridland to EUett for twenty
yard*. Fast on this play, which carried the Blue and Oold boys into
kicking position, Ellett kicked to the
dead-line. Then occurred one of
those flukes; the receiver dropped
the ball and Varsity scored a touchdown which went unconverted, leaving the score 5-1 for U.B.C.
The third period saw both teams
endeavoring to score. In the last
quarter the All-Blades started the
baU rolling by scoring a rouge on
Moffat tor one point. The game was
finished by a field goal for three
points by McPhearson of North Van.,
the final score being 6-5 for the All-
Both teams did their utmost to win
but the ground was heavy, making
It extremely difficult for the men to
make fast getaway*. The All-Blacks
played with a cool precision and at
the commencement used their superior weight with deadly accuracy; but
later in the game Varsity was able
to smear many of their plays. The
University gridders made up their

gain one or two points, as almost
every four battled almost to tho last
hole before the points were derided.
Charlton, semi-finalist In the B.C.

after a successful season.
Determined not to be out-done by
the soccer team, the girls are going
off on a jaunt to turn back Chilliwack'* beat on Saturday night.
There are seven regular players,
and Coach Barbarie has announced
that ten player* wUl be carried

Margaret Hall, guards, Marjorie Lang,
forward, and Myrtle Beatty, who
plays both forward and centre, are

Only two of the team have had
previous Senior "A" experience.
Gladys Munton, a sterling captain
and guard, will be a strong opponent

Harper, also a member of last year's
team, is a diminutive but speedy
forward. Audrey Munton, Dot Hudson, Kay Bourne, Helen Joost and
Jean Thomas comprise the rest of
the team.

will travel to Victoria to play a Senior "A" game for the provincial title.
The Co-eds will also play Pentlcton

fifteen minutes after aha had started'

is the first women's race held by the
club tor thrte years, and it Is to be
hoped that the women will ktep it
up and all enter next year.
Snarl At
"King Winter" teems to bo determined that the soccer laddies shall
not make their projected visit to
Chilliwack. The game is billed for
tomorrow, but with the snow performing in mid-season form, it does
not appear likely that the trip wUl
take place.
Anyhow, the boys art expecting
to travel to the land of contented
cowt ln the near (aa possible) future
to gain revenge for the 1-0 loss suffered thtre last ytar. Aa the entire
senior team expect* to make the trip,
the prospects of a victory look good.
However, the men of the Cherry City
also have their eye on a victory and
have plenty of abUlty to back up
their threats.
Should it be impossible to make
the trip tomorrow, lt Is possible that
the game will be arranged tor Saturday, provided the V. & D. League
does not schedule a game for this
week-end. This would suit our boy*

would be a good preparation for the

Bowers displayed strategy as captain; Ridland, a newcomer to the
gridiron, showed rare promise in his
passing and ln his interpretation of
plays; Poole worked his deadly
tackling to perfection, Moffat showed
speed in running back his share of
the punts, and EUet kicked out many
long punts.

pretty well even till the second half

began to feel the results of dirty

The starting line-up of Osborne,
Bardsley, Nicholson, K. Wright and
CampbeU wiU taka the floor as per
usual. Matthison, with his usual bag
of tricks, will also be on hand, together with Dick Wright and Mansfield.
Osborne's Third Tear
Captain Bob "Tony" Osborne, wi)l
lead the Blue and Gold aquad from
his position at right guard. "Tony"
is a veteran of three years senior
baritetbaU, and has been captain for
the last two. In the Dominion
Championship final* in 1931, Bob
stacked up 13 pouits hi the last game
to practicaUy win the game for Varsity.
Another veteran of four years
standing is Laurie "Olson" Nicholson,
who will hold down the centre position. Laurje, although not the team's
high scorer, is a splendid team player, making the plays for many scores.
'Olson" although the centre ot the
attacking force, is invaluable on defence also.
A third member of Varsity's
Championship team of two years ago
is PI "Rubberlega" CampbeU. In
Varsity's last season in' the old V.
and D. League, Pi carried off high
scoring honors, whUe playing on the
forward Une. This ytar he nas been
shifted to guard where he bas produced some really effective long
shooting, which ha* cinched some
important contests. t
Wright a Play-maker
A two year member of the team
ia Ken "Hooker" Wright. A good
play-maker, Ken consistently turns
in fine performances. Although hampered in the last game by a broken
finger, "Hooker" expects to be ln
shape for the play-offs, though the
finger is still slightly swollen. Ken
Is the utUity man of the squad, alternating at guard, forward and
Bardsley, another "sophomore"
player, who is one of the hardest
wrokers on the team, will be right
ln there at forward. Jimmy seldom
falls to break into the scoring column, long shot* being his specialty.
Rann Matthison, one of the "freshmen" of the squad, although one of
the amaUeat players in the Burrard
League, is nevertheless one of the
most effective. Rami, in several contests, has taken high scoring honors,
his style being hard to check. His
regular position is at forward.
Dick Wright, who jumped this year
from Intermediate to Senior A ball,
has been a very effective sub at both
guard and forward. Dick features
long shots, and has a habit of getting
them when they are needed.
Mansfield, formerly manager of the
squad, stepped in to fill the empty
place when "Horses" Douglas was
declared Ineligible. Tommy hails
from Westminster, where many of
Varsity's Senior "A" player* have
been turned out.
