Naturalistic Style Of Acting!

Instead Ot Satiric, Thespian Aim

Spectacular Shavian Show
Neither satire nor spectacle, but a^achieve  a  symbolical rather  than  a
historical exactness.
There, indeed, is the object of the
whole production. It wants to excite
the sense of imagination, not the sense
of fact, and so to make the audience
parlcipators in the play with the actors. In his way lies the fullest possible enjoyment for them.

living portrayal of thrilling events
and great personalities—that is the
aim of the Players' Club in George
Bernard Shaw's "Caesar and Cleopatra," the Wth annual spring play,
which will go on the boards at the
University Theatre next Wednesday
and run the rest of the week.
Once again the main desire of the
club, and of Miss Dorothy Somerset,
director, is to realize the aim of all
good actors, a complete Illusion of
life. They are therefore playing the
parts naturally, just as if they were
living them themselves.

Yet, though "Casar and Cleopatra"

quite large quantities of both the latter, which are desirable in themselves,

Its main features are two. It is
solid, three-dimensional, like the actors; it has line and movement; it is
not static, but kinetic. And, secondly,
it is plastic. Only seven units are required to represent eight widely differing scenes. A slight change of angle does the trick; a palace becomes a
lightTiouse.
The effect of all this is enhanced by
lighting; one might say it depends upon, lighting. For the first time the

Britain Is Premier
Buyer of Timber
"The greatest market for British
Columbia lumber, shifted from North
America in 1929 to the United Kingdom, Australia, and China in 1933,"
revealed Mr. H. Monro, of the H. R.
MacMillian Co. in his address to the
Forestry Club in Ap. Sc. 235 last
Wednesday noon.
English Market Replaces American
"In 1929, our water-borne exports,
representing 40 percent, of total production, were 133 million feet divided
among lumber importing centres as
follows;   Atlantic Coast of U.S.A.  J5
j per cent., Japan 21 per cent., United
: Kingdom 9 per cent., Australia 5 per
1 cent., and China 5 per cent.   In 1933,
] our water-borne exports, representing
66 per cent, of total production, were
I 662 million feet divided among lumber importing centres as follows: Atlantic coast of U.S A. 2 per cent., Ja-
: pan 9 per cent,, United Kingdom 41
I per cent., China 20 per cent, and Australia 19 per cent.," stated the speaker.
High Tariff Closes American Market
Discussing the causes of these radical changes in percentage distribution of exports, Mr. Monro pointed
out that the recently imposed super-
tariff on lumber decreased the Atlantic coast's quota from 35 per cent,
to 2 per cent.; that the new preferential tariffs plus improved selling campaigns increased the United Kingdom's quota from 9 per cent, to 41
per cent, and Australia's from 5 per
cent, to 19 per cent.; and that the increasing importations of raw logs in
Japan for manufacture into lumber
there decreased Japana's quota from
24 per cent, to 9 per cent. The increased share taken by China, he attributed to improving trade relations
and selling campaigns .
Japanese Finances To Collapse
Mr. Monro believes that we shall
sell less and less lumber to Japan
during the next few years because of
the chaotic state of her finance and
credit. He believes that she will experience a severe financial collapse
in a year or two. However, he believes that China is a bright spot in
Oriental trade.
Revival To Boom Industry
Tho fall in domestic consumption,
he attributed to a fall in Canadian
purchasing power, The speaker is
confident that a revival of that purchasing power will see the restoration of the domestic market and that
this, coupled with our increased exports, will boom the lumber industry.
Financing Exports
The speaker dealt technically with
the financing of the exports to the
different countries and explained the
parts that the draft, and the confirmed, irrevocable letter of credit
played in this financing.
cornldy^Cyrano de~B^_raa"~The  dangerous, merely serving as a relief
Treaty of Versailles which so "hashed
up" European boundaries at the end
of the war.   It set out to remake
Europe, and instead destroyed it.
War Inevitable
Canada cannot reform the League
because of the unanimity required !n
votes, stated the speaker, "so the
League must remain unchanged in a
world of change."
He went on to say that due to the
growth of nationalism and of military
preparations war is Inevitable ."We
must get out before strife comes."
Since the League has failed in peacemaking, withdrawal is Canada's only
escape.
Canada Must Remain
The negative was taken up by Earl
Vance who said that the aflrmative
merely proved that war is inevitable
instead of sticking to the resolution.
Failures were admitted, but the
League cannot be expected to be perfected in fifteen years.
He further explained that even if
Canada were to withdraw from the
League she would be inevitably drawn
into war should war break out. Canada promised that she would become
n member in 1920, and now the affirmative states that she should back
out in a time of trouble.
Disarmament
Disarmament is the League's major
problem, and the League is the only
power that can prevent private concerns from manufacturing arms for
profit, and selling them to anyone
and everyone.
Jack Sumner then took up the affirmative, stating that the League has
failed because the greatest countries
nre not members, such ns the United
Stales. Canada rhould withdraw and
make room for the United States.
Basically Unsound
He summed up his argument by
saying that the League is unsound; it
has not worked and cannot work; it
is ineffectual in the prevention of
war; and that is merely an aggregation of reactions, determined to maintain the status quo, and thus Canada
has no say.
Mr. Hall completed the negative
argument stating that the argument
of the affirmative was based on false
points. He said that if it had not
been for the League the Treaty of
Versailles would have long ago led
| to war. If it had not been for the
i League, war would have been precipitated on March 1 of this year
through the Nazis' ultimatum to Austria.
Law and Justice
He said tha,t Canada should remain
in the League because she would inevitably be drawn into war anyway,
and because the League stands for
the principles of law and justice. The
League is now to be put to the test,
is Canada going to help? The principles of the League are being challenged by barbarism, Canada must
work for these principles. We must
stand by the ideal, and fight if necessary.
In a brief rebuttal Jack Sumner
said that the League is ineffective and
"Roosevelt is the only man of enormous powers who has
gained them fairly and without any questionable means. He is
the most interesting figure in the world today," declared Mr.
F. H. Soward at his annual survey of international affairs before
the International Relations Club at a supper meeting in Union
College, Wednesday evening.
New Major Sport
Managers Chosen
Soon, Says Council
New managers of the five major
sports on the campus are to be elected in the very near future, it was
stated at the Council meeting on
Monday.
The installation of the suggested
Managerial System in the constitution
was postponed, however, until the
next meeting when it will have been
drawn up in more legal form than it
is in now.
One O'clocks Suffer
Communication has been received
by Council from the Faculty Committee that Students' one o'clock lectures are suffering from the delays
caused by noon-hour meeting that
last too long. Council undertook to
warn the Literary and Scientific Executive and th. Pep Club that meetings  must conclude on  time.
A resolution was introduced by Collins tha the Alma Mater Society agree
to entertain the two-man team from
the Oxford and Cambridge Debating
Team. At the same time the English
Rugby Club was granted permission
to negotiate with the Victorian Rugby
Union provided that the A.M.S. assumes no financial responsibility.
Rowing Meet
Max Stewart, president of men's
athletics, suggested a minute to allow
the Varsity Club to attend the meet
in Seattle on March 24. The Boat
Club is financing itself and raising
funds by the regatta and tea-dance
to be held March 10.
A meeting of the Eligibility Committee was called during the evening
and the decision reached that there
be no exemptions made to the rules
of the committee in regards to the
basketball players who failed to reach
the necessary standard at the Christmas examinations.
National Institute of Social Sciences
in New York presented him with a
gold medal for distinguished public
service in his presentations of the
classics, ancl later the American Academy of Arts and I.etters awarded Mr.
Hampden a gold medal for the purity
and quality of his speech on the stage.
He was the first actor to receive this
award which has since been bestowed
upon Edith Wynne Matthison, Julia
Marlowe, E. H. Sothern, and Otis
Skinner,
for tired politicians, and engaging in
work to preserve "our beautiful marine life."
The motion was defeated two to one
in an informal vote of the house.
An informal discussion took place
after the debate.
Musical Timbres
To Be Illustrated
Before Institute
"The Science of Musical Sounds"
will be the subject of an address to
be given by Dr. J. G. Davidson, of
the Department of Physics, ,at the
meeting of the Vancouver Institute
to be held on Saturday evening <n
Arts 100. The lecture will be Illustrated with experiments.
The selection of a series of tonal
vibrations into musical keys, and the
organization of these into harmonies,
has always been a matter of interesting research, So, also, have been the
different qualities and timbres of
these into orchestral and other compositions. The experiments that will
illustrate Dr. Davidson's lecture will
therefore be of a very general interest.
The lecture commences at 8:15 p.m.
and is free. The B. C. Electric maintains a bus service between Tenth
avenue and Sasamat street and the
University.

Economic Phase
Dealing first with the economic
phase Mr. Soward pointed out that
down to the spring of 1933 conditions
were steadily growing worse in the
world as a whole but since then there
has been a gradual though not a uniform rise. According to their economic conditions the countries may be
divided into seven groups. Great Britain, Belgium, Finland, South and
East Africa have advanced rapidly ln
the last year. Switzerland, France,
Sweden and Japan have shown a uniform improvement. New Zealand's
trade has diminished. Czechoslovakia,
Holland, Denmark, United States,
Canada and Poland are on the upward
trend. Conditions in Greece and Brazil are still very bad with no improvement and Jugoslavia is in a worse
position than a year ago.
Commodity Prices
1933 saw a definite though slight
rise in commodity prices throughout
the world. There was a decrease in
unemployment in Britain, United
States, Germany and Canada, In both
these respects Italy is still on the
downward trend according to official
figures.
The cause for this improvement is
puzzling. It does not depend on better
tariffs, the removal of currency obstacles or the settlement of war debts.
War debts Mr. Soward likened to the
lading Cheshire cat.
Real prosperity or a full measure of
trade cannot return till there is a
more sensible economic policy among
the nations. In the interim a severe
strain is placed on the faith of the
people. This, in the last year, has
led to tlie overturn of governments,
to revolutions and assassinations.
French Rising
The French rising in January, said
Mr, Soward, was caused by the insecurity precipitated by the depression,
the instability of the government and
a feeling of disgust. The last was
roused by the discovery of scandals
linked with public officials.
The new premier has formed a government on the condition that none
will hold aloof. His cabinet, which
includes six ex-premiers, represents
al! parties but the communist and the
monarchist.
Diplomacy
Turning then to the diplomatic field,
Mr. Soward dealt with the Four
Power pact, the Little Entente agreement to stand together economically,
and the recent German-Polish pact.
In the past year Turkey, Greece,
Roumania and Jugo-Slavia also have
signed a pact agreeing to make no
negotiation with a foreign power except as a group.
For Russia 1933 was a brilliant diplomatic year. She signed non-aggression pacts with all states but Germany and Japan. She also gained
formal recognition from the United
States.
In March, Great Britain offered her
new disarmament plan and Roosevelt
urged its support. He defined aggression as the crossing of the borders
into another country. The plan gave
an accommolation based on security,
equality and supervision. Mr. Soward pointed out two errors in the
plan. No limitation is made in the
budget expenditures and no agreement
was reached on which are agressive
weapons.
Mr. Soward next turned to the recent developments in Austria where
the victory of Dolfus has destroyed
in the country the strongest powers
that believe in democracy.
"United States in March, 1933, had
sunk to a far worse condition than
Britain reached in 1931, but Roosevelt
on attaining office performed a feat
of remarkable leadership. He appointed men of excellent calibre to official
positions and shook the country out of
its mood ot depression. In June the
NRA was passed and great public
works launched."
For the first time in four years the
world allows itself a guarded optimism, the speaker concluded. (

FRIDAY, MARCH 9,1934
ELECTIONS  AHOY!
The candidates for the Alma Mater presidency have our sympathy. In this issue they
struggle manfully to present constructive platforms to the voters, but they fail dismally as all
their predecessors have done before.
Their proposals are largely a mass of pious
hopes, and well-meaning platitudes. The only
practical constructive suggestion offered, seems
to be that relating to the stadium. Otherwise
there is nothing either new or original.
Next week there will be a host of new candidates for the other Council offices, and we
will be treated to another dose of the same
description.
Candidates are not elected on their platforms, as the majority of students recognize
their fatuity. Personal merit seems to be the
deciding factor in every campus election. With
our necessarily limited fields of activity, the
same problems arise practically every year,
and must be faced in much the same manner.
What is required above all else is a high
degree of sound common sense. More qualities
than sincerity are necessary. There should be a
maturity of opinion and action, and a shrewd
business sense.
None of the candidates have as yet displayed any high degree of talent in the management
of student affair^. The only thing for the electors to do is to make the best of the available
choices and vote for the man who they consider
can best be trusted to guide affairs with a cool
head through a trying economic period.

STRANDED   SYMPHONY
<3£3Q CSB ®RS"
The   Wm-Kus
MP
BY NANCY MILES
An appeal has been issued by the Vancouver Symphony Society for contributions.
Already five thousand dollars have been raised,
but this is insufficient to cover the nine thousand dollars expediture incurred by an organization whose low admission costs make any
profit impossible.
It is unnecessary here to stress the cardinal
necessity of a symphony and the loss which its
disbanding would occasion. The symphony has
many friends—as it should have—here. We
urge that the personal support of all those lovers of good music be evidenced by some contribution, however small, to our stranded symphony.
A couple of wiseacres said to us the other
day, "Why don't you put more human interest
in your column like O. O. Mclntyre does?" We
would have said, "And why don't we sing like
Patti?" if we had thought of it, butj we didn't.
We pointed out that the ethics (which we have
not yet turned in on a 1934 Chevrolet) of the
profession prevented our using our friends'
private lives for copy, and were greeted with
raucous laughter.
This, we understand, is our last appearance.  So here's some personal items:
We pulled a fast one on Ted Madeley the
other day, and remarked, "Caught you unawares that time."
Mr. Madeley looked dignified as only a
Madeley can, and said, "You couldn't have. I
haven't any on."
A blessed event is anticipated at the science building. Mr. and Mrs. T. Algernon
Guinea-Pig are the prospective parents. Maybe this should be in the coming events column.
We've been snooping around the Players'
Club hideout. They have a sofa up there.
We're considering wasting our four hours a day
with the Players' Club next year instead of the
Pub Board. We found a secret up there, but
don't tell a soul. They're going to put on a
play soon. We even found the name of it but
it wouldn't be fair to tell that. The initials
are "C and C" and it doesn't stand for cake
and coffee. The Little Theater serves cake
and coffee between the acts. Free, too. Drop
around some time.
(This is too easy.)
People that rate A plus around the campus: Dr. Sage, Dorothy McRae, Norman Hacking,  Mr.  Matthews, Elena  Macdonald,  Stu
Keate,  , and  ,
and    Fill in your own name
in the first blank, and two others. We know
who the two others are, but we're not saying.
The A plus is not scholastically speaking.
The D minus people. Make out your own
list.
Bill Stott takes the carroway cookie for
standing up straight.
Bill Aalbersberg doesn't wear any garters.
Mark Collins is a hard man to make smile.
One of the graduating aggies can't take it.
He couldn't eat his lunch after reading our
little story about the cat and the midget.
We thought of writing down the names
of those people who owe us money ! Let your
conscience be your guide !
Guy Palmer listened to Guy Lombardo
play a birthday greeting to Guy Kibbee the
other night. How disguise do get around.
Don't shoot!
Very inane. We don't know any more
facts.
The P in our name stands for Perley, pronounced to rhyme with "hoily boily." Some
people will tell you it stands for Pyromaniac,
but that isn't true.
I'm sending Arthur Walrus back to his
native ha'nts next week. Wave goodbye to the
ladies and gentlemen, Arthur.
Correspondence
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
An editorial appeared in the Tuesday issue of the Ubyssey which besides being utterly false was written
by an irresponsible person. The Ed-
into-in-Chlef was not responsible for
the article, but it was entered by on
inexperienced associate editor who,
unfortunately, had control of that
particular issue. In fairness to all
concerned, it Is only right that the
article should be corrected.
The first prevarication was that in
regard to the Discipline Committee
warning women students smoking at
University functions. The rule prohibiting women students from smoking on the campus or at University
functions is entirely a motion on the
books of the Women's Undergraduate
Society and Is not a rule which has
ever been enforced by the Discipline
Committee. It is entirely the concern
of the women on the campus who are
responsible for passing that partie
lar motion. This year's Discipline
Committee, either collectively or in
dlvidually, has never attempted to
reprimand any woman student for
smoking on the campus or at any
University function.
The other charge that was made
concerning the action of the Discipline
Committee in regard to an artlol.
that appeared in a down town newspaper was greatly exaggerated and
misinterpreted . The said article did
appear on a day when the Ubyssey
staff were editing that particular paper, and thus, seeming to come from
a university student, was not only
untrue but indiscreet. When the Discipline Committee was asked to investigate the matter, by a motion of
Mens' Athletic Association, they found
that the article had not been written
by a university student. The matter
was subsequently dropped.
In regard to the suggestion that the
Discipline Committee take action on
those students leaving their books on
the Library tables for long periods of
time, the Committee are quite surprised that the students tolerate such
abuses and hesitate to push the books
back and take the seat. This is tha
proper procedure for anyone who is
unable to find accomodation in the
Library.
These are the false charges that this
cub newspaperman has made. He
doesn't seem to realize the extreme
difficulty, first of all, in reprimanding one's fellow students for breaking rules they themselves have adopted, and secondly In the general lack
of co-operation of the student body
in enforcing them.
It Is not, and has never been, the
Intention of the Discipline Committee
to be officious in carrying out its
duties, but such absolute misstatements of the facts at any time, would
madden the most extreme pacifist.
Let's have co-operation, not false accusations, and we will never have to
worry about our student government.
MILT OWEN
Chairman of Discipline Comittee.
EMPTY VAULTS
The new Minister of Education is honestly
endeavoring to implement many of the projects for educational reform made before his
election. Unfortunately he finds himself in the

USELESS INFORMATION
This, incredulous as it seems, has been
going on within our very gates for years, but
it took us to sleuth it out and put the facts
before you. When you hear a crowd scene
backstage in the forthcoming play, every member of the crowd will be informally dressed
backstage and will be saying distinctly, "Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb." That is what crowds
in the movies and on the stage always say.
When two people are seen on a stage talking
informallv what they are actually saying is,
"A B C D?" "EFGHIJ K." "LMNO P!"
and so on ad infinitum.
Editor. Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I was sorry to see that in your Tuesday edition, you were so short of
matter for editorial comment, that
you had to resort to a somewhat futile criticism of Mark Collins and
Students' Council,
While certain regulations regarding
smoking on the campus are admittedly antiquated and cumbersome, the
fact that the discipline committee has
made a vain attempt to enforce them
is a matter for constructive rather
than destructive criticism. I note that
you did mention that Council had
some accomplishments to its credit,
but I suppose it would have been
against your policy of adverse crit-
cism, to have enlarged on them, rather than on a few minor errors of
judgment,
Personally I feel that, by the efficiency with which they have managed student affairs, and by the dignity with which they have upheld
their office student's council this year
have regained much of the prestige
lost by the comnaratively ludicrous
and inefficient bodies of the two preceding years. And finally I think
thev will be gratefully remembered
if for no other reason than that they
have subjected us to no more than
one Alma Mater meeting this year.
In conclusion I might say that I
merely insert this letter, secure in
the fact, that as an ebullition of an
unlettered Scienceman it would hardly be considered worthy of even such
unbridled and fatuous criticism as
has characterized the Ubyssey thia
year.

vealod In his contributions down
town. The critic might even be surprised if his own conception of highly-polished, "highbrow" sport reports
failed to pass the barrier of the Editor's waste-paper basket.
According to the article under review, Stu is entirely without college
spirit. Apparently "One of '34" has
a very original idea of that spirit-
perhaps he never reads the Ubyssey,
or the Handbook; perhaps he isn't interested in the maintenance of the
existing University on the campus—
because Keate has been Senior Editor of the Ubyssey, editor of the Handbook, and a captain in the petition
campaign. He has been in twenty-
five performances of the Players'
Club; he was an assistant-director of
the Christmas plays, and is, at the
present time, rehearsing for "Caesar
and Cleopatra."
I shall be very disappointed if "One
of '34" does not publish a list of his
extra-curriclar activities in the next
issue of the Ubyssey — that is, of
course, if the twenty-four columns
of the paper will hold them!
Hoping that this letter will receive
the attention of all voters in the approaching Presidential elections, I remain,
Yours sincerely,
T. Murray Hunter, Arts '35.
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir: *    ,     ,     __
The many malicious tirades by the
Campus Crab are very amusing to
students attending this university who
know better than to take him seriously. It is time this great (?) constructive (?) critic (?) woke up to the
fact that if for any reason he desires
to damage the University of British
Columbia, he is certainly going about
it in the right way.
Copies of the Ubyssey are sent by
students to their friends in all parts
of the world, and it is obvious that the
puerile and conceited remarks of this
person will not be taken by such outside readers at their true value, which
is "just so much guff."
I have read most of his articles and
feel that if I cared to say the things
he does I would be ashamed to lack
the courage to sign my name to such
libellous statements.
His criticism of the Musical Society's
presentation of the "Mikado" is what
finally raises my ire. Everyone I know
who has seen the performance tells
me he or she is surprised that an amateur society can do so well. I am told
our show was better than that put on
by the Victoria Operatic Society, who
have the talent of all Victoria to
choose from.
The choruses of the Musical Society's presentations are soid to be just
as good as those of professional companies who have been playing for
years.
And yet this man must tear every
detail of the show to pieces and set
himself up as superior to others who
are really capable of intelligent criticism.
Anyone who makes such remarks as
he makes ought to take some lessons
jn self protection, or he might find
himself getting what he deserves: a
sock on the nose.

Editor. Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Many readers of your valuable paper must consider themselves singularly favoured by the appearance, in
your correspondence column, of a
truly magnificent specimen of personal criticism—coming from the pen
nf a budding genius who, apparently
in th. interests of commendable modesty, has nreferred to designate himself as "One of '34."
Although the oblpct of this writer's
attack is not definitely named, there
con be no doubt but that he intended to connect his rvmnrks with Stuart Keate—at present offering bis services for president of the A.M.S.
With due resnect for th. literarv
excellence of Keate's self-anpointed
critic, there yet appears to be more
than a few flaws in his unjustified attack unon this prominent leader of
campus activities. Whether these
flaws arv> the result of iimorfince or
deliberate misrepresentation is best
known to the writer himself.
As one who has had the privileeo
nf knowing Stu since wa took Math.
11 together, I wish to make a few cor-
sible standards. The University may well be! rections, with regard to the afore-
' mentioned    letter,    that    are    badly
assured of a square deal. His recent remarks in
the legislature bear this up.
But unhappily we cannot expect too much.
There are certain static facts that cannot be
overlooked. As the province has no funds, education as well as all other governmental functions must consequently suffer. Until some radical and far-reaching measures are adopted to
break through the financial impasse, any hopes
for an improvement in educational facilities
must be slight.
needed indeed,
So Stu is a "Snorts Page athlete"
is he? I wonder if "One of '34" ever
knew that the object of his ridicule
was runner-up for the Varsity Golf
Championship in 1931 that he was a
member of the Intermediate "A"
basketball team, ancl that he was also
manager of the Senior *'A" team. In
the famous Stadium Drive, Keate also
took a prominent part—but, of course,
such a "small-minded" sports writer
entirely larks the qualifications of a
student writer!
Perhana if "One of '34" knew a
little more about the newspaper business he would not be so ready with
his criticism of Keate's style—as re-

but nevertheless, lt sends cold shudders up and down the Crustacean
spine even to contemplate the possibility of being surrounded in one's
academic life by such glorious, glittering creatures as these must be.

of the unfortunate undergrad who
loses his susceptible heart, as one
necessarily must, to one of these
spangled houris. Imagine him daring
to appear in the character of escort

least a V16 for transportation, and

Startled students pause at the foot
of the Kaf stairs, finding themselves
faced with the engaging countenance
of our fellow journalist Mr. Stu
Keate, and the startling announcement
that he Has a Past.
The other five candidates appear so
far to be remarkably reticent. Can
it be that they believe that sUence is
the better part of publicity in this
feature of their careers? Or do they
consider Mr. Keate's Past is in their
favor?
Or—horrors!—can it be that we are
faced with the task of choosing between Mr. Keate with his Past and
five gentle souls whose Immaculate
habits preclude any idea of them having strayed far enough from the paths
of virture to have accumulated anything remotely like a past?

Glowing tides of sweet content pervade the Crustacean frame, and as

my efforts with deserved praise.

Presidential Aspirants
Submit Their Platforms
Five Candidates Outline Monday Speeches
For   Ubyssey
As a prelude to the meeting in the Auditorium on Monday
noon where the presidential candidates will each be given three
minutes to present their platforms and where one of their supporters may discourse for three minutes; the Ubyssey has interviewed the five candidates for President of the Alma Mater Society.  The results of these interviews are presented below:
Drawn By Elizabeth Crawshaw
Professor Angus is a lawyer by vocation but an economist by avocation.
Although born in Victoria he has
spent enough time away from that j
city's rarified • atmosphere to have
practically recovered from the initial
disadvantage. He has not yet been
asked to join the Native Sons of
Canada, but is still hopefulL
He early saw the error of his ways,
and repaired to McGill in search of
higher learning. In this he was assisted by Stephen Leacock, who is also an
economist In his Idle moments.
From Montreal Mr. Angus journeyed to Balllol College, Oxford, where
he immediately showed himself proficient both in the telling of good
stories and in the study of common
law. Before very long he had added an
M.A. and a B.C.L. to his McGill B.A.
He won the Venerian Scholarship In
law, and was called to the bar at the
Inner Temple.
Before he had finished more than
one year of his three year scholarship, war had broken out, and Mr.
Angus found himself detailed for two
years service in India. He finished
his military career with two years in
Mesopotamia chasing Arabs and generally enjoying himself.
He returned to British Columbia after the war and settled down among
the famous Fairview "shacks" to instill some measure of economics into
tho students of the infant university.
At the same time he became a member
of the British Columbia bar, but doesn't let thc fact go to his head particularly.
Since joining the staff Mr. Angus
has seen the university grow to its
present size and standing, and has
done much to increase its reputation.
He became head of the department of
economics in 1930.
H. has long been a staunch advocate of giving the Canadian-born
Oriental a square deal in British
Columbia. He has been forced to
meet an almost impregnable opposition from the public, but at least he
has the satisfaction of knowing that
a more liberal attitude is growing up.
He is an honorary member and advisor to the Japanese Students' Club
on the campus.
Mr Angus is associated with many
learned societies, but has managed to
stand the strain very well, and is
still famous among his friends for
his sense of humour.
He has taken a prominent part in
the Pacific Relations Conferences held
every two years at points on the Pa-
siflc. Last summer he attended the
conference at Banff, and amused himself by comparing the reactions of
Japanese and Chinese delegates.
His lectures are not truly lectures.
They are really conversational interludes, in which he points out the
frailties ancl stupidities of human
conduct.
Although always erudite Mr. Angus never puts on swank. He
has the happy faculty of raising tlie
ire of the ignorant and self-sufficient.
He is supremely logical in his thought
and nothing delights him more than
the exposure of irrational thinking
His only prejudice is prejudice. He
possesses a completely unbiassed mind
that picks the fatal flaw In every
argument. What the bar of British
Columbia loses, the University gains.
-N. R. H.
STU KEATE
Stu Keate, formerly Senior Editor
of the Ubyssey and Junior Member
for Council, stands for a revival of
College Spirit by an increase in Inter-collegiate Sports, Inter-faculty cooperation, and an improved Ubyssey.
"I have already made Informal contact with other Pacific Coast
Colleges and I would like to see Varsity in competition with Bellingham
Normal, Washington Frosh, College
of Puget Sound, Yakima Junior College and others. At present just a
few sport teams do the travelling."
Keate favors placing the advertising for the Ubyssey hi the hands of
an agency, and would like to see the
paper on a tri-weekly basis, if the
student body is large enough next
September. If the paper is lax in its
news-gathering, it should come under Council censure, he says. He
also favors one-o'clock class parties
and thinks that the Science Ball is a
tradition which should not be destroyed. ,
Keate figures that a wide range of
campus contacts should help him gain
both sides of a campus issue before
they go to Council.
WALTER KENNEDY
Walter Kennedy favors a serious
and well directed attempt to draw
the faculties together. Cohesion, of
the faculties and friendly rivalry
should be fostered, he declared.
Since most of the present problems
of student government will have adjusted themselves before the induction of the new council, Kennedy
adopts a policy of non-commltal on
them and prefers to be free to vote
ln the student interest.
MURRAY MATHER
Murray Mather, Junior member for
Council, feels that because of his experience in his present position he is
capable to qualify as president of the
A.M.S. He outlines his platform as
follows:
A policy of economical budgeting—
to result in a healthy financial surplus at the end of the next year;
completion of the reorganization of
clubs and societies allowing recognition to only those which can show
their worth, thus relievnig a heavy
strain on the budget.
He further favors recognition and
support of the managerial system for
major sports, and continuation of the
major functions, the two faculty balls
and the extension of class parties to
one o'clock as proposed in the new
constitution.
Mather favors a continuation of the
issuance of the Ubyssey twice a week
rather than the proposed plan to reduce it to a weekly paper.
Fraternity
Jewellery
Expert designers and
craftsmen, combined
with a splendidly
equipped factory, assure the production
of Frat. Jewellery of
character and distinction at astonishingly
low prices.
BIRKS
JACK SHANEMAN
Jack Shaneman points to his experience on Council as treasurer of
the A.M.S. He declines to make a
series of long-winded promises believing that he should be free to vote
in the best interests of the student
body. He favors immediate adoption
of the new constitution for the Alma
Mater Society which, he points out,
has been hanging fire for the last
three years. He favors an intercollegiate policy similar to that which
brought Stanford, Alberta, Washington and Puget Sound to Vancouver
this year.
JOHN SUMNER
John Sumner, Sclenceman and Debater, proposes an Interview with the
provincial government to obtain a relief grant to improve the stadium.
He points out that the greatest portion of cost would be for labor.
He favors a return visit to San-
ford and an increase in intercollegiate
events. He suggests that basketball
seek entrance into the Northwest conference.
Sumner believes in Fall budgeting
and is strong in his protests against
budget revision in the Spring which
necessitates changes in club policies.
Sumner further believes a means
should be found to increase the Women's building fund and that a plan of
"Blanket" insurance for the entire
student body.
"I have none of the mid-Victorian
prejudices that have caused the discrimination against our Co-Eds and
I believe they should be permitted
to' express their views by a secret
ballot."

COMPETITION FROM ART
MONUMENT XI
After playing the high-class Nanalmo City squad to a standstill last
week Varsity Soccermen will take
the field with confidence against Art
Monument in a regular V. and D.
1st Division fixture tomorrow afternoon. The game is set for 2 o'clock
on Cambie street and is bound to attract ft great crowd of spectators.
Up to Christmas, Art Monument
were the only undefeated team in
Vancouver, but in the second half of
the schedule they bowed down to
Maccabees by the narrowest of margins. Last week, also, Renfrew Argyles squeeted out an even more slim
victory over the Stonemason-, but this
was not a league match.
Win Needed
The Monuments are right on the
heels of the league-leading Maccabees at present, but unless they beat
Varsity tomorrow Maccabees will
have virtually cinched the league
championship. The Students, on the
other hand, have been dying to get
a shot at the Chislers (as they fondly
call them) all year, and will be fighting for all their worth tomorrow. It
is natural, then ,to expect a ding-
dong battle.
Strong Side
Manager Bill Creamer has lined up
a strong side to represent the Blue
and Gold tomorrow, he reports. Stan
Greenwood will as usual take care
of the goal, while that redoubtable
pair of backs, Jock Waugh and Millar |
McGill, will resume in front of him.,
No Changes ln Half i
The half-line will also remain un-'

pear as follows: Hugh Smith, Russell

Is CounciVs Face A Rosy Red The
Pub Board Won Away Ahead!
By Don McDonald
In one of the most exciting, awe-
inspiring, thrilling and laughable
games of the year, the Publication-
Board of the University of British Columbia beat the Tin Gods from High
Olympus. (Council to the uninformed,) The game was fast, furious,
fantastic and foolish, only spoiled by
tho awful playing of council, which
fielded one of the scrubbiest teams
ever seen at the University. Thc score
was 29-10 by our scorer and 12-11 (still
in our favour) by their scorer.
McCrimmon For Pubs
The refereeing was wonderful. It
should have been. It cost th. Publications board $5.00 for McCrimmon,
and not a cent for Hay as he didn't
have a whistle, ancl by the time he
had got his fingers into his mouth
to call a play the game was over.
Poor Opening
Council entered the gymnasium attired in dirty looking black cloth
smocks   which    we    understand    are
TEAMS:
Publications Board-
Logan, Idyll, Agnew, McDonald, Kozoolin.
Council—
Collin.,  Owen,  Mather,  Shaneman,
Stewart, Stead,
SCORES
Publications Board-
Logan   (17),  Idyll   (6),   Agnew   (4),
Madely  (2), McDonald  (.00014), Kozoolin (.00015).
Council-
Collins   (2), Owen   (6),  Mather   (2)
Shaneman, Stewart, Stead.
wo are not sure. Women screamed
and fainted when council removed
said gowns and revealed carefully
groomed massive hairy chests. What
a sight, What a laugh.
Plays Terrible!
Play   opened   slowly,    both    teams
feeling out the plays fo the oppon
ent. As neither team had any plays
worn by them when an Alma Mater ] that didn't last long . Logan started
meeting is on. Since there has not I the ball rolling when he scored for
been an Alma Mater meeting for agesthe Pub. board.   After a few minutes
Council   retaliated  but  that  was  nil
the retaliating they did.
Mr. Elson, coach and manager of
the Bob, b*ard team, had Logan play
in the hole, thus penetrating the zone
defense of Council, He scored at
will, running up a mere 17 points (by
our scorer) and 7 by theirs.
Owen Stars J
Milt Owen was the best player for
Council. It is of course difficult to
make such a statement as comparing
degrees of lousiness is hard. He
playod a fine game ... of Canadian
rugby. Holding, pinching, and running with the ball. He got away
with that because he threatened to
haul McCrimmon up before the Discipline Committee for not wearing
socks to lectures. Despite all the
threats such as above the Pub, board
nothing daunted, won the game to
the greater glory of the Ubyssey.
A very amusing scene took place
in the showers after, when members
of Council were trying to remove the
wigs they had stuck on their chests.
One of them took off over 8 square
Inches of skin with the wig.
(Editor's Note: Council's version of
this game will be printed next week.)
Winning every event but one and
gaining the first three places in the
individual scoring, Artsmen swamped
Sciencemen and Aggies at the Annual
Inter-Faculty Track Meet Wednesday.
The Artsmen gained 90 points to the
Redshirts' 22 and the Aggies 4. In
addition McCammon of Arts led the
individual scores with 14 points, followed by Agnew with 12 and Harvey
Barclay with 12 each, all staunch
Artsmen.
Arts Win Track and Field
In thc track events, Artsmen placed first in all races but the three mile
which Northcott won for Science. Out
of all the others the Enlgneers gathered but two seconds and two thirds
and the Aggies won one second. In the
field Arts did even better winning all
events and allowing the Sciencemen
only two second places and the Aggies
one third.
McCammon Stars
For Arts, McCammon won the Shot
Put. the Javelin Throw, placed second in the Discus Throw and came
third in the High Jump to gain 14
points and win the individual championship. Agnew, his rival field athe-
lete, won the Discuss and came second In the Shot Put and the 120 yard
Hurdles to boost the Arts 'total. On
the track, Harvey won the two Hurdles and Barclay the 880 and mile to
place third in the individual scoring.
LuttereU did best for the Science-
men placing second in the Broad and
High Jumps and third in both Hurdles to gain 8 points. The Aggies
obtained their total through the efforts of Wood who finished second in
the 410 and Goumeniouk who placed
j third  in the Javelin Throw.
Arts Places In Dashes
I    Artsmen  gained  all  places  In  the
. dashes. Stott breasted the tape ahead
of Heron in the 100 while Heron
edged out Wilson in the 220 In a close
finish.   All the faculties placed in the
i 440, Stewart winning it for Arts followed by Wood  of Agriculture and
I Walker of Science. In the distance
runs, Barclay outran his rivals Alfie
] Allen and Phil Northcott to capture
I the mile and Northcott brought Sci-
i ence their only victory by leading
Patmore of Arts in the three mile
marathon. In the field, KUnkhammer
won the Broad Jump over LuttereU
of Science, the latter also placing second to Thurber In the High Jump.
Handicap Meet Friday
On Friday at noon the Track Club
will stage a Handicap Meet. The
spike and shorts men will vie with
each other in the 100 and 220 yard
dashes, the 440, 880 and mile and the
High and Low Hurdles.    Keen com-
! petition is promised for the entertain-
j ment of students.

LAST   HALF   RALLY   WINS   FOR
THUNDERBIRDS
AS WILLOUGHBY STARS
Varsity has a two to one advantage over the Province basketmen as
a result of their 32-28 win on Wednesday night at Varsity. The next
game of the 3 out of 5 series for the
mainland title will be tonight at the
V.A.C. gymn. at 9:00.
Despite the fact that the Thunderbirds played one of the most ragged
games of their careers during most of
the first three-quarters of Wednesday's game, they came back with a
rush at the end to win. Nearly 700
yelling fans watched the exciting
game. Varsity started fast, playing
nice ball to pile up a six point lead
at 9-3. Then they began to play ragged
ball as Province
graduaUy crept up to
lead 16-12 at half-
time. They kept this
lead until about seven    minutes   from
"Olsen" tlme* wn€n tney **'"
ed to stall. Wiiloughby got two quick
baskets followed by one by Bardj-
ley and another by Osborne which
sewed up the game for the Thunderbirds.
Olsen Scores First
The first score of the game came
after several minutes when WiUough-
by intercepted a Province pass to
throw to Nicholson who converted it.
After two more Varsity scores Osborne heaved a beautiful pass the
length of the floor to Wiiloughby who
scored. Varsity played well for this
short period while Province depended on long heaves, none of which went
in.
Harvey Leads Rally
Soon after this Mclntyre. the brains
of the Province squad entered the
game and engineered a Newsies rally that put them ahead 16-12 at half-
time. Province played much better
ball with Mclntyre at the helm while
Varsity were not playing their usual
smooth team game. Their passes were
going wild and Province got tlie tip-
off from center nearly every time. In
one scramble under the basket Mclntyre gave Pringle a push and nearly got into a scrap with McCrimmon.
After that every play that the Province star made was heartily booed
by the crowd.
McCrimmon popped a nice basekt
after the interval, and Wiiloughby got
a basket and a foul shot to tie the
score at 17-17. Province drew away
again to lead 25-19. With this advantage they made the fatal mistake of
trying to stall. Art Wiiloughby broke
this up with two baskets within thirty
seconds of each other, foUowed by a
long heave by Bardsley, Osbome put
the game on ice with a basket about
half a minute from the end. Art Wiiloughby played a magnificent game
and was undoubtedly the best man on
the floor. Bardsley showed up well
also and these two won the game for
the Blue and Gold. Mclntyre, Purvis
and Kennington were best for the
Newsies.
Scores:
Varsity— Bardsley (9), Wiiloughby
(12), Osborne (7), McCrimmon (2),
Pringle, Nicholson (2), Wright, McKee, Mansfield. Total—32.
Province—Purves (8). Mclntyre (6),
Chater, MacDoneU, Armstrong, Ken-
nigton (8), Smith (2), Helem, Bum-
stead (4). Total-28.
