Students' CouncU has refused to
pass certain Items amounting to about
twenty doUars which were included
to the expense account of tbe debating team which recently traveUed
to Saskatoon. After a discussion of
the account, CouncU decided on Monday night to summon Nathan Nemetz
to give an explanation of these items.
CouncU members were unanimous
to the opinion that the account as
presented was ridiculous. "What gets
me Is that Nemets has the nerve to
get up to an Alma Mater meeting and
kick about expenses," declared one
member of CouncU.
' The financial report of the team,
consisting of NeU Perry and Victor
Dryer which debated to California,
was passsd at the meeting and CouncU members pointed out the strong
contrast between it and that of the
Saskatoon trip.
Other budgets were passed, including that of the debate against the

of  the  Department  of  Chemistry.
Fifty-one percent of these graduates are employed to B. C. and another twenty percent to Canada.
Forty-one have received their Ph.

"The national depression . started
from the war and certain ideas that
grew up during the war," stated
Prof. G. F. Drummond to speaking
on the "International Causes of the
Depression" to members of the International Relations Club at the
home of Dr. and Mrs. W. A. Carrothers Wednesday evening.
He listed four consequences of the
war as tensions that precipitated
present conditions. They were: the
intense growth of economic nationalism; the Russian experiment; the creation of a new alignment in international Indebtedness; and the development of a new industrial distribution the world over.
Tariffs, the speaker said, are the
by-product of the Treaty of Versailles, and a desire of each country
to become economically self-sufficient.
The rapid change of United States
from a debtor to a creditor nation
and of Germany from creditor to
debtor, presented a big problem in
reparations. The withdrawal of American funds and the speculative furor in Wall Street, however, were the
Immediate causes of the crash. Maldistribution of gold and high tar-
riffs in the creditor nation is a further aggravation. The backwash of
gold into the United States and
France made gold more valuable,
while hoarding In these countries
forced the price level down and intensified the net weight of the debt.
Regarding the industrial change
which Is due to improvement in industrial technique and growth of Integrated industries, Professor Drummond said the standard of living
should go up pro rata of the increase
in productivity, but it hasn't done
In the discussion which followed
the speaker declared that if he were
tire Premier he would default payment because "I think that is the
only way to educate the Americans."
He does not hold out much hope for
the World Economic Conference.
Students turned out to their best
numbers to hear Calvin Winter and
the Home Gas Concert Orchestra
perform under the auspices of the
Musical Society on Thursday noon
ln the Auditorium. The program
featured Violet Barlow, young Vancouver singer with Frank Anders
as Master of Ceremonies.
The opening number, Rudolph
Friml's march, "The Three Musketeers" from the operetta of the same
name, was characteristic of the
whole program, which with the exception of "Slavonic Rhapsody," by
Friedmann was of a light popular
character. Violet Barlow's very
clear and full soprano voice was
shown to good advantage to the popular "L'Amour Toujours l'Amour,"
and "A Kiss to the Dark," the latter
being excerpt from a medley entitled "A Bouquet of Kisses."
Selections from GUbert and Sullivan's "Iolanthe" which is to be produced by the Musical Society this
month, included the "March of the
Peers" and the "Sentry's Song," but
did not give much idea of the delicate charm of the lighter songs for
which the opera is famous.
Mr. Anders hoped that the students
would support the Musical Society's
efforts and announced that the Society and the Home Gas Orchestra
would broadcast from the Hotel
Georgia on Monday, February 13, at
9 p.m.
"A Short Recitation" by the Master of Ceremonies, with amusingly
unsuitable sound effects from the orchestra, proved to be one of the best
received numbers on the program,
which also included "Let's Put Out
the Lights and Go To Sleep," and a
medley of coUege airs.
To help the students forget their
troubles, which Mr. Anders had heard
they were having with some sort of
drains, the Orchestra concluded its
program with selections from "Sunny
Side Up."-C.F.L.
Freshmen and Sophomore classes
have been having a hectic week up

After tho tears ot hundreds of
freshettes ted aophettes had drenched

Tuesday, a crowd of three hundred
35era assembled to Arts 100, which is
becoming the regular noon stamping-
ground of the worried classes, and
ate then* lunch to comparative silence waiting for the draw for their
class party to take place. They had
everything on ice or so they thought,

A Sad Story
The question of the orchestra waa
a "moot point" when President Sid
Evsns braved the Intermittent rain
of lunch papers to take his stand on
the platform and the gleeful students suffered a slight check to theIr
emotions. A deep frown puckered
the forehead of the chief executive.

Apes and Ivory
By Arthur Mayse
My ape wouldn't stop crying. Crouched in
his nest in the copy-basket with his paws over
his face, he sobbed and whimpered pitifully.
"They're saying things," he wailed. "Nasty
things about you and meeee! I must have a
name at once, Bill."
A delicate point, this.
"Well," | told him, "our reputations shall
be protected without loss of time."
So we held a Christening party for my literary ape and, with all due formality of book,
bell, and lily pond water, named him Peter.
And henceforward and forevermore, to the
credit of his Alma Mater and the glory of Ihe
Anyway, we named him Peter.
Hare at my altar to tne forest's heart
I come to worship under a cedar giant
In this lost place, to loneliness apart
From hurried life, a wearied suppUant
Hear now my prayer, 0 unknown Dietyt
Accept It as an offering from one
Whose object is to shun society
To speak with thee unhurriedly, alone.
The smoke that from my altar fire arises
Straight to the blue, untroubled summer sky
Carries my conjectures and my surmises;
My weary soul sends forth this pleading cry,
"Hear me in this my crisis of aU crises
And end my questioning soUloquy."

The Fountain, by Charles Morgan — A. A.
Knopf. Reviewed by D. R.
This book is written in a most engrossing
manner — indeed, one hates to set it down before reaching the end. Perhaps the mala interest lies in the author's masterly portrayal of
character, especially in the case of Julie and
Allison, though tiie minor characters too are so
skilfully delineated mat, as they* walk across
the pages, one regrets that the author does not
j dwell longer on them.
The plot is light, but is cleverly handled;
even in the first chapter the characters are
developed, thus gaining tiie immediate interest
of the reader. Allison, a young Britigh offi-
Icer of scholarly tastes, is interned in Holland
for duration of the World War. Here/due
to the hospitality of a Dutch family, he is enabled to give himself to the study of contemplative thought throughout the ages. Here,
also, he meets Julie. She is a childhood friend
with whom he has lost touch, and at the time
of the story ia married to a German officer
serving at the front. The delicate love that
springs up between them is complicated by the
return   of   the   German   husband,   Rupert,
and niake'our Tin'term's ajTTiTrtT^ woxxnded, and In g^eat physical »«««'!«««^ A

It is only a little think to ask, but we do
not hesitate to ask it, for we know the response
will be adequate.  It's up to the student s now.
Recently the Musical Society called for
tenders for the construction of scenery for
their coming production "Iolanthe." Members
of a local of tiie A. F. of L. and a non-union
man submitted.
The tender submitted by the union man
was considerably lower than that of the nonunion man, but was submitted on the condition that he be allowed to use any or all the
scenery on the stage.
The non-union man's tender was accepted.
For fifteen years the local stage-hands' union has been trying to obtain control of the*|
University stage, so that they can inaugurate
their policy of dictation as to the number of
men needed for a show.
** The Council has made a wise decision in not
allowing the union to gain a firm footing.
We are beginning to wonder just when the

When plans for the Handbook were being discussed 'way back last May, is going to materialize.
It seems to us that a little procrastination has
become a dangerous thing. The time is coming,
as the walrus said, to talk of many things, in
the form of elections. As every one knows,
unbiased discussion is a mathematical impossibility with elections in the air.
Already there are rumours of nominations,
so it behoves the great ones up above to "stand
and deliver" if they are to maintain a reputation for efficient control of student affairs.

so much to say concerning the running of student affairs, has succeeded in arousing the

up the interpretation of a certain clause in the
Societies Act.
man of philosophical mind, guided by a noble
code of ethics, he forgives Julie on his deathbed. This scene is one of the most poignant
bits of writing that has come to the notice of
the reviewer.
Allison as a deep and enquiring student', as
well as a "man of feeling," will stand out in the
memory of the reader. Julie* too, with her
intelligence and her feminine charms, will not
soon be forgotten. But Rupert, although Mr.
Morgan diH not give him the attention he gives
to his other characters, is in some respects a
better creation than either Allison or Julie.
Another aspect of the book that will rouse
admiration is the skilful way in which tiie
Dutch atmosphere of mildness and limpidity is

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
After reading the various repUes to
the letter of tiie "Two Sophisticated
Co-eds," we feel that certain U.B.C.
man are exceedingly brilliant, if
nothing else, If one may judge them
by their biological researches, l.e„
that a dead body cannot he embarrassed. These two young todies made
an unfortunate choice to tiw use of
that particular expression, but on
beholding some U.B.C. men, we realize that the aforementioned are
probably not dumb enough to be
found alive with one. It is true, as
"Mr. Smith" says, that there are
many very charming males on the
campus, but these are not as conspicuous as the unhappy majority.
Referring again to Mr. Smith's statement, "it would be a rather shocking state in which to find a girl with
any man" . . . ." referring, ot course,
to the corpses—may we advise that
gentleman to, as thi old proverb
goes, keep his mind out of tiw gutter.
Tours truly,

Oogluk paused to his stride. Oogluk
was not a man. He was not a bear.
He wm not even a member of the
Aplaoophora. He was half ape, half
man, He wu the Missing Link. He
paused to his stride so that we might
examine him. The first thing that
struck ' the observer was Oogluk's
fist, if the observer was displeadng
to the Missing Ltok. Oogluk was
not a nice person to know.
He was cailed the Missing Link

was very convenient, as it wu quite
cafe to borrow the odd five-spot from
him. Chank Quay even, went to the
length of borrowing a bunch of bananas on Tuesday, and demanded their
return the next Sunday. Oogluk
obediently handed over the second
hunch, and was quite satisfied that
aU obligations had been cancelled.
But let us aUow Oogluk to resume
his hurried march. He has just had
a telephone caU that a Blessed Event
is about to take place to his home.
The Missing link was worried. He
remembered he had a mate, because
she had burned the bacon that morn-
tag. But he could not remember
anything before that. And, as I say,
he was distinctly worried.
Twenty years later. Oogluk's
daughter was curled up at the very
top of a huge Slphonophore, that
spread the shade of Its prognathous
leaves over a large chunk of ground.
And what was Iiklpoqulg doing, you
might ask. That's what was worry-
tog Oogluk. Hidden to tiw depths
of a neighboring tree, he was watching bar closely. And she seamed to
be on fire, and enjoying the process*
"Plink plong, lksl pish tush?" he
shouted at last, meaning, What the

"The real profit of mountaineering
is the sense of exaltation one gains
from the hills," stated Mr. A. T.
Dalton, prominent Vancouver climber, to a lantern lecture given Wednesday noon to Aggie 100. "The
mountains are still relatively unknown," he continued. "Vancouver
as a whole is not mountain-conscious."

brought out graphlcaUy the thrills
and dangers ef what he considers

Okok paused ln his stride. Carefully he scratched bis head, a thick
wooly hegd it was, with a low brow
that receded from his eyes so much

Okok was bewUdered. He had
never torn a liana growing horizon-
taUy across a path before. At least,
not so tautiy as this one. Furthermore, JUst beyond tills liana waa a
deep hde in the ground, Okok did
not remember seeing that there the

favorite axe walking away mysteriously, it was suite lodcd to Imagine
that a hde was quite capable of
walking Info his path,
But Okok's mind could not keep
on on* thing for very long. Just now
his mind kept wandering back to his
lost axe-that terrible weapon, the
first of ill kind* that he had so laboriously chipped from flint.
He shambled on, tripped over the
liana, and fdl tote the hols. At last
his mind comprehended. Trapped!
An evU laugh rumbled forth, breaking the silence toto Uttle hits that

ReUglon featured the regular meeting of the Classics Club hdd at the
home of Mr. A. Ppole, on Wednesday. Two papers were given: the
first, by Max Humphrey, dealing with
Greek Mystery Rdigians, and tiw
second, by Jamas Stobie, treating
Roman Religion and Roman Public
Mr. Humphrey traced Greek Re-
Uglon from its first beginnings from
powers ascribed to nature, through
Its various developments of ritud
and cults, to its gradud extinction.
He divided his topic toto three sections, Chaos, Mystery, and Religious
Philosophy. The first dlvidon dedt
chiefly with tiw arising of order
from chaos. The second part described the systemidng of the newly-k
arisen order, and tha powers given
by the Greeks to thdr Gods, these
Deities were superior to men only to
tbe third section told of the birth
of a new spirit: a scepticism which
was to result to the failure of th*
Olympian Religion. There were two
distinct kinds of Mystery Religions,
dvic and secret. The civic mysteries
included almost the whole population in thdr membership, but th*
secret cults had set rituals and high
barriers of qualifications.
Mr. Stoble's paper dedt with the
place of Roman Religion to pubUc
and private Ufa. Tracing tiw origin
of tiw Roman gods from their various beginnings, he went on to describe and name some of the deities
such as Jupiter, Mars and Quir-
tous, who ware the three most important powers. After the close ot
the RapubUc new religions and gods
in early times, tiie king of Rom*
wa* the head of religion and the Intermediary between the gods and
the people. He was the chief expounder of divine law, controlling
through thia power aU cults and rituals. To break a religious law had
only one punishment in ancient
Rome, death. But later to the growth
of the city the penalty was changed
to excommunication. The king, who
was Pontifex Maxlmus, held the tola
right of taking auspices. When the
Kings were driven out of Rome,
however, the office of pontifex max-
imus was given to an Important citizen. Roman ReUglon, on the whole,
was practical, and hence cold. Because of this it was replaced by tbe
later orgyistic cults.
After pondering over Latin crossword puulea, the members enjoyed
refreshments, and the meeting adjourned with a vote of thanks to the
host and hostess for the evening.

Sid Swift, Commerce '34> Places
First ln Cross-Country Classic
From Field Of Thirty Starters
Arts 34 Get Two Points Toward the Cover-1
nor's Cup •-— Northcott Second, Sinclair
Third — Commerce Entries Strong —
Three in First Ten
Sidney Swift, of Commerce 34, on Wednesday established
himself as the ace of U.B.C. distance runners by winning the
classic cross country race from a large field of 28 starters. Swift,
who runs with his head as well as with his legs, displayed uncanny judgment by catching Northcott, last year's winner, just
at the finishing line, clocking 19.53.3-5. This marks his second
triumph of the current season, since he also captured the Arts
30 road race. Phil Northcott ran a steady race to shade Oeorge
Sinclair, veteran Science runner, for second position.
John Smith, Sdence '33, placed
fourth, passing George Allen with a
powerful spurt fifty yards from homo.
Dave Pugh, rugby player and Commerce entry, was a threat throughout
the race, but had to be content with
fifth place at the finish. He was followed dosely by Herb Barclay, while
John Grubbe and Hugh Hamerdey
staged a merry battl* before finishing
in tiw order named. Ward of Anglican CoUege cam* to tenth, to cop
tiw last offlcid place. Alfie AUen,
a favorite, wu unable to compete,
because of illness.
Commerce Wins On Points
The class of Commerce, organised
athletlcaUy for th* first time on the
campus, placed three men to the
first ten, and thanks to Swift and
Pugh, Comm. '34, notched tiw greatest number of points, with IS. As
they do not as yet constitute a faculty, these points wtil go to Arts '34,
giving them 19 all told, and two
markers towards the Governor's
Cup. Sdence '33, represented by
John Smith and George AUen, came
second with 13 points, and were
awarded one digit towards the Governor's sUverware.
Race Closely Contested
The runners got off to bunched
start, and trotted, a soUd phalanx of
human flesh, for about 300 yards before stringing out. Smith was leading at the half-mUe point, closely
foUowed by Swift, Sinclair, Grubbe,
Dobson, AUen, Hamerdey, Addison
and Pugh in that order. Sinclair
then challenged, finally taking the
lead as the runners plunged into the
woods. When thoy emerged, Northcott, distinguishable by his crimson
sweater, was seen to head the little
group of leaders, still stubbornly
Horn* Stretch Thrilling
Streaming down past the Soccef
field, the runners began to open up,
Pugh taking the lead, but he was
soon forced to relinquish lt to Sln-
ddr. At that point It looked Uke
anybody's race, with Sinclair, Smith,
Swift, Pugh and Northcott fighting
for the advantage. Diminutive Phil
Norhtcott finaUy grasped a dender
lead, but victory was not for him
that day, for Swift came on to an ir-
redstable drive to the tape, winning
by a scant two yards.
Enthusiastic Crowd
Lining both dde-walks from the
Sdence buUdlng to the Administration, duttertog up the bus depot,
and over-running the roof of the
Science buUdlng, a crowd of dudents
tstimated to the hundreds, voiced
thunderous approval of the stirring
finish. In a brilliant, setting of snow
and sunshine, the race was unquestionably one of the mod successful
staged since Its Inception.
Officials of the meet were Doctor
Davidson, Professors Logan and
LlghthaU, who were assisted by Bobbie Gaul, Jim MitcheU and Max
Stewart The Track Club were re-

Well, Wednesday's marathon ran
true to form with Swift showing a
briUiant spurt to romp home fird for
Arts '34. Alfie AUen, one of the
favorites, and one of the best middle-
distance runners Vardty has put out
in the lad couple of years, did not
run. Alfie was dek to bed Tuesday
so he figured the long grind would be
too mueh for him. Maybe he was
resting up for the Arts '30 road race.

The Arts '33 women's inter-class
basketball team proved too strong for
the Arts '34 squad, when they fought
their way to a 22-7 victory lad Wednesday afternoon. In the first half,
the '34 girls failed to score, whUe Arts
'33 corralled 10 baskets, the honours
faUlng to Phyllis Boe and Ruth Witbeck.
The second half saw a much closer
battle with Arts '33 scoring 10 points
and '34, 7 points. On a technical foul
for not reporting to the referee,
Betty Black, Arts '34, scored 1 point.
For the '33 girls Ruth Witbeck scored
7 of the 10 points while Betty Black
did all the scoring for the '34 squad.
The  struggle  ended  with  the  score
122-7 for the women of '33.

campus regarding next Tuesday
night's epic basketbaU game, featuring Varsity's Senior A crew and the
crack Ellensburg Normal Quintette.
Those "in the know" realize that
they will be afforded the chance of
seeing one of the best games to be
dished up in Vancouver this year. For
the benefit of the uninformed students, the foUowing information will
prove enlightening.
3rd Bed Team
I The Ellensburg team ranks as the
third strongest aggregation in the
State of Washington, and plays a
brand of ball surpassed by only the
Washington Huskies and Washington
State teams.
Last year these boys played their
way to two state championships, and
are headed strongly along the same
road this year. After winning the
Normal Championship, the team
signed on in the Commercial league,
and playing against some of the bed
teams on the coast they emerged victors of the North-West Commercial
Same Team Back
This year five members of this outstanding squad are once more back In
uniform, and with the same coach
and an excellent second string they
are making things hum in no uncertain manner.
Their coach, Leo Nicholson, was All
Coast Conference guard for Washington Huskies a few years ago, and is
to check.
Case, who holds the other forward
berth, Is an excellent shot and good
on rebounds. He is a splendid team
player, and can be counted on to click
at aU times.
Haney, the centre, is a six-foot five-
Inch human dynamo. He usually
plays "in the hole," and has a deadly
one-handed shot, which helped him
to amass 6 points against U.B.C. A
special feature of Haney's play is his
consistent skill at snaring rebounds.
Johnny Fuller, playing at left guard,
is plenty smooth. He is good on rebounds and an all-round baU-handler.
Is He Tough!
Bailey, right guard, is the captain of
the team, and the play-maker. He
plays at full speed the whole time,
and checks so hard he reminds hla
opponents of a stone wdl.
The second string will probably be
composed of Sills, HaU, Hedley and
Mercer, all of whom are pot-shots and
heady players.
Vardty Has Good Chance
With this oppodtion to face, Varsity wiU have their hands fuU, but
are looking forward to take the game.
They have learned a lot since the lad
game, and with Pi Campbell on the
floor to help them they may be conceded an even chance of victory.
The Blue and Gold team have been
training  hard  for  this  event,   and
have entailed considerable expense to
bring the team up from Washington.

Arts Win Monday
In Hockey Brawl
Against Science
Artsmen pucksters repeated their
triumph ot the Rotary Carnival Relay when they defeated a fighting
team of Sciencemen three goals to
one to a rough-and-tumble encounter Monday night.
Sciencemen drew first blood early
ln the first period when a concerted
rush of the redshirts eluded the defense and fooled Andrews, the Arts
godle. Murray Little, playing for
Arts, soon evened Up the score when
he and Ramsden went down the ice
to elude WUUs with a low shot.
From this point on the game grew
fast and furious, with Arts having
the majority of play, but having
plenty of trouble from the attacks
of Ernie CarsweU, Al Kirby and Don
Matthews. Arts on the other hand,
had a greater share of the members
of the regular Intermediate team to
B1U Fowler and Chuck Symonds, defense,, and Cece Ramsden, Harry
Horsman, and Gordy Livingstone, on
the forward Une.
Arts seemed to get under way with
a wUl as the lad period drew to a
close and Gordy Livingstone ran to
two quick goals to make the score
three to one for Arts. This closed
the scoring and Arts were pressing
around the Sdence god as the final
whistle went.
BUl Sharon consented to act aa
referee and managed to please every-,
body by not handing out a single
pendty, dthough there was plenty
of good-natured checking which
could hardly pass as legd to a regular league encounter.
The boys state that this game Is
not find, however, and another encounter to the series wUl be played
next Monday night.
Senior B Squad

The Senior 'B' basketbaU outfit are

major honors In their league this year
If they ever were.. The team now

two new men.
Doug. Mclntyre, who has been performing brilliantly to the guard podtion on Senior 'A' squads for tiw lad
severd years, will help the boys
along for the rest of the season.
Fred Bolton, who waa playing a
good brand of baU on the Squad lad
