Letters Club
Hears Paper
On Mary Webb
"Because Mary Webb dealt unflinchingly with life in all Its phases,
she has been regarded by many as an
outstanding realist of our modern
literary world," stated Miss Patricia
Newlands, when she gave her paper
to the Letters Club at the home of
Mrs. T. Larsen, on Tuesday, Nov-
amber 11.
"The Right Honorable Stanley Bald-
win in the common phraBe 'discovered'
Mary Webb," declared Miss Newlands,
"to the extent that her work was
the subject of his address at an
annual dinner of the Royal Literary
Fund. At the same time many of
the leading literary critics had also
written, "that the public had failed
to appreciate her genius."
"The stories of all the novels are
stereotyped because they universally
depend on the theme that declares
materialism to be the source of futility in life's purpose and the root
of all evil," said the reader of the
paper. However, "It is only in the
variations of character and setting
that the plots assume new quality.
The eternal struggle between earthly
and spiritual love is a favorite subject with Mary Webb."
Distinctive Style
It is the author's great power of
characterization and the distinctive
personality of her style that are the
essence of Mary Webb's works. It
is "the deftness in the U3e of nature
scenes and carefulness in the selection
of figures of speech," that make her
descriptions so realistic.
"The most outstanding quality of
Mary Webb's work and the quality
for which she will be remembered is
her high-souled, yet, not unlivable
philosophy. Her natural mysticism
was not vague and formless—not an
insecure retreat from reality, but a
livable, workable belief," said Miss
"Precious Bane" is without any
doubt, Mary Webb's finest contribution to literature, because in it she
has expended her deep love of nature
which she knew as a girl and over
this early appreciation she has laid
the knowledge of life and the charm
of a mature woman." The story,
though somewhat simple in outline,
"gives ample scope for powerful
charactt rization." Here it is seen
that Mary Webb's humour, "is her
recognition of some quaint or queer
trait o,' human  nature."
Hooks In Hrief
Her first novel, "The Golden Arrow," resembles in many aspects
"Precious Bane," but "it'lacks the
deep comprehension of life of the
later book." "Gone to Earth" has
fewer fine passages than "Precious
Bane," but in its way is exquisite."
"The House in Dormer Forest" is
faulty in many respects but it does
give us one delightful character, that
of Amber Dark. "Seven for a Secret" is purely a love story. "The
Armour Wherein He Trusted" was
only half finished at the time of the
death of the writer, but, "was a somewhat new experiment for Mary
"Besides the novels, Mary Webb has
written many short stories." But
the only two that possess "the quality necessary for a successful short
story" are ,rOver the Hills and Far
Away" and "In Affection and Es.
"Like all her other writings her
poems tell of nature and in point of
verse form, only, do they differ from
her prose." They are "simply spontaneous utterances, naive and childlike."
Co-Eds Offer Prizes
For College Songs
Being unable to obtain a i.aitahle
room with a piano on Wednesday at
noon, the Women's Undergraduate
executive has decided to postpone
song practices until after Christmas.
Students are reminded that contributions to the song-writing contest
are due December 5. These should
be sent to Dorothy Myers, Secretary,
W. U. S., or to any other member of
the executive. Prizes of $5.00 and
$3.00 will be awarded for the best
Many I.R.C. Clubs
Are Discussed
In Address
Members of the International Relations Club were guests of Professor
and Mrs. Soward at a most Interesting meeting Tuesday evening. Miss
Hemlnway Jones, Executive Secretary, was present, and spoke most
entertainingly of the work of the
many International Relations Clubs
scattered through United States and
Canada, as well as in China, Japan
and various parts of Europe.
A most interesting discussion ensued on the subject of tho extent to'
which the question of International
Relations interest the average individual citizen. It was agreed that interest in the subject is very much
more general than it was up until
a few years ago.
The Club hopes to be favored with
a visit from D. Mack Eastman, formerly of the Department of History
of this University, and more recently
with the International Labor Office.
Further announcement will be made
The Club is still open for new members, who should make application to
the Secretary.
"The more we are together the
happier we'll be," was undoubtedly
the spirit that flooded the Anglican
College Wednesday evening, when the
Theolog. entertained the residents of
the Union College. Under the management of Scott, Anderson and Vale-
tine a programme with a punch was
arranged, in which students from both
colleges took part. One of the highlights of the affair was an exhibition of jiu-jitsu by Messrs Hara and
Kimura, who learned their tricks in
Japan; the other being the refreshments, which were served later in
the Dining Hall. Reg. Hammond extended a vote of thanks to which Mr.
E. W. Jackson replied. The evening was closed by singing "For
they are jolly good fellows" and "O

lt is rarely in student life that one
finds an outsider with such an intense
interest in student life as C. Hadyn
Williams, Director of the Musical
Society, Ever since the Musical Society first came into prominence,
Mr. Williams has been the guiding
hand antl personality back of it. In
the days of its inception, a concert
in the Spring was an un-heard of
ambition. This year the Society is
presenting the immortal "Pirates of
Penzance," showing a progress that
is almost unequalled among the cultural organizations on the campus.
Besides being a director of the
Musical Society, which involves training of a mixed choir and the orchestra, Mr. Williams supplies a real
need on the campus—the need of musical advice and help on the part of
organizations other than the Musical
Society. Homecoming, Christmas
Plays, Glee Clubs, have all at one
time or another called upon him for
assistance and at all times he has
been found ready and willing. Were
he a bono lide member of the Alma
Mater Society he could not be more

are facing the peoples of the Pacific
amphitheatre and will discuss the
possibility of their solution by peace*

Last year Prof. Angus attended the
Meeting of the Institute of Pacific
Relations at Kioto where, it is generally understood, he took a very creditable part in the proceedings as one
of the Canadian representatives. He
Is now giving a very popular course
on "Pacific Relations," Government 4.
The address should be very opportune for public attention is focussing on these problems of the Pacific.
At present one U.B.C. graduate of

some ten U.B.C students. Professor
Angus will be present in the capacity
of a leader, as he was at a meeting
of the Conference last year. On this
occasion Prof. Soward will accompany
him in the same capacity.
Grads to Assemble
For Boston Dinner
The Canadian Club of Boston is
planning to hold "A Canadian University Dinner," and has asked for a
list of the Alumni of the University
of British Columbia resident in Massachusetts.
The Registrar's Office has some
data, but would be pleased to receive
additional information from students
or others with regard to any of our
graduates who may be living in Massachusetts.
Mr. O. A. Cameron, chairman of
the committee, writes, "There are
more graduates of Canadian Universities and Colleges in and around
Greater Boston than is generally realized. Several colleges have active
alumni branches here and one, we
believe, has a membership of between
150 and 200. We should expect a
gathering of upwards of  1000
The Women's Undergraduate Society will hold a "bean feed" on Monday evening, November 17, from 5.30
to 7. They will serve beans and pie
and coffee, anil supper will be followed by a sing-song.
Certain intangible things really
mean more to us than things we can
actually touch and see," began Rev.
E. McGougan, in speaking on, "Things
Invisible," in the S.C.M. Lecture Series in Aggie 100, Tuesday, at 12.10.
"They are the most important
things in life because they are the
most permanent and powerful. Religion has its stronghold in this invisible kingdom. We may think that
we work entirely on the basis of reason, but if we bar other things we
lose fulness of life. Garrison's claim
that "my country is the world, my
countrymen all mr.nkind" was inspired
by something behind. Its permanence
has been proved hy the judgment of
"The individual who wishes to do
good to others must have some belief
behind to warrant it. This can only
be a belief in the immortality of the
soul and in a personal Gotl.
"We can live without understanding completely. The Bible shows
that Jesus came into the worltl and
lived un ideal life. On that basis we
enn use our influence for upholding
what is lasting, good, tru eantl beautiful in human life.
Dr. J. H. Brown of Union College
will be the next speaker in the S.C.
M. Lecture Series, His subject is,
"Science and Religion." This address
will be held Tuesday, November 18, in
Aggie 100, at 12.10.
Council Outlines
Requisition Plan
For Club Budgets
The Business Manager submitted a
detailed report on The Requisition
System at the regular Council meeting on Wednesday. The main points
of the report are:
1. In the case of clubs estimating
receipts from membership fees, that
theae be paid in before November 1,
and their budgets be reconsidered in
such cases as are necessary. Also
that the Business Manager be instructed to wlthhojdp wherever convenient, from .granting the major
items on the budget.   7
2. No jn_tii_ltk>ruClihall be issued
other than .kgainatM»udgets save in
the followinFeoft.
a) On any urgent matter where the
President and Treasurer of the A.M.S.
sign the requisition.
b) Merchandise, etc., for immediate
c) Bills passed by Students' Council which were not incurred by requisition, The name of members of
Council assuming responsibility for
this bill shall be written on the bill.
3. All bills be turned over to the
Business Manager for checking before they are voted on by organization executives.
•1. Bills submitted to Council which
have not been incurred by Requisition
shnll be stamped with one or the other
of the following stamps:
(a) If passed: "No Requisition,
no further bill will be paid to this
company by the Alma Mater Society
unless incurred by requisition as enclosed."
(b) If refused: "No Requisition,
—The Alma Mater Society cannot accept responsibility for this bill as it
was not Incurred by an authorized
6. Blanket requisitions to the extent of $26.00 may be issued at the
discretion of the Business Manager
against a definite budget for incidentals, to a club. Only one of
these shall be issued to any club at
any time.
6. Whenever a person authorizes
an expenditure or issues a bill in any
other way than by requisition from
the Business Office, that individual la
personally responsible for the bill issued.
The requisition system is to be adhered to as strictly as possible, and
Council members are to inform their
executive of the system to be followed.
General committees were appointed,
to function during the Christmas
holidays. A committee will go through
the Constitution of the A.M.S., and
decide: on any revision to be made, A
committee will look into the reorganization of budget distribution, and one
is to investigate social affairs on the
j Campus, with a view to their curtailment.
It was decided that as a matter of
courtesy, Alma Mater fees shall not
be exacted from exchange students.
Council's resolution that the Publications Board should apply for permission to print special issues of the
Ubys.ey was brought up by tho
Editor, but the matter was tabled,
pending a report from the Business
Manager of the Ubyssey, as to exactly how much the Publications Board
does cost.
Pedagogues Triumph
Over Normal Reps'
Representation for Education was
the motto of Education '31 basket-
hall team when it nosed out Normal
School by 10-15 in a tight game at
Varsity gym, Tuesday night.
The tilt was close throughout and
Normal had a chance to force the
gume into overtime with a free shot
after the final whistle blew, This,
however, was not converted antl the
Varsity team left the floor with a win.
Normal started with a rush and
piled up six points before Education
could find the basket, By half-time,
however, Education was leading 12-
10. In the second canto Education
maintained a slight lead all the way.
Kelly and Chalmers were the nick
of the Education team, scoring all Us
points. Oth' r members of the team
were: Hurlihey, Sanderson, Rogers.
Fullerton and DesBrisay. G. Root
refereed the match.
Education lost its first game to
South Vancouver High, so now has
two points in the High school league

Whether or not to give official credit for extra-curricular
activities has long been a hotly-debated problem. Some universities have adopted the idea and even go so far as including
athletics in the list. The wisdom of this extreme ia to be greatly doubted since, according to the findings of the Carnegie Foundation commission, the system has been utilized to push near-
morons through college in order to get their services on the football team.
In some other universities the idea has not been pushed to
the extreme but credit is allowed for participation in dramatic,
musical and debating activities. Such outside work is carefully
supervised and care is taken to allow no slackers to make the
road to learning a royal one.
Considering the amount of work expended in these student
activities and also the educational value derived, the giving of
credit for such extra-curricular work seems in keeping with the
purpose of a university, granting, of course, that strict requirements are maintained.
It is by no means seldom that the only direct training for
his life-work which a student acquires in university is obtained
by outside work in dramatic, debating or allied fields. The Publications Board is an example. Reporters, who are accepted by
the "Ubyssey," get such training that they are qualified to write
for the daily newspapers and the way is directly paved for a
career in journalism or literature.
The "Ubyssey" refrains from drawing any conclusions
about the matter at this time. The suggestion, however, is open
to the students. If they unite in thinking that the idea is practical and desirable, and if the Senate can be so convinced, then,
official credit for extra-curricular should be assured,
One reason for the unpopularity of the University of British
Columbia in some quarters is that many people look askance at
the freedom of thought that is customary in most university
circles. The plump profiteer, for one, flinches involuntarily as he
pictures hundreds of critical young students, soon to be let loose
on the world, examining in their libraries and classrooms the
economic system that permits unscrupulous men to exploit their
The communist, for another, regards the University with
disfavor. In a manifesto distributed last week, the Communist
Party of Canada, District No. 9, refers scornfully to the
$20,000,000 that the Government will spend on "so-called 'Unemployed Relief work, in the building of roads for the bourgeoisie
to ride over, and a stadium for the Rah Rah boys from the institution of corrupt bourgeois learning to play whoopee on,"
This attitude toward the University is enough in itself to
brand tho communists as disseminators of nonsense, They, too,
are afraid of the scrutiny of critical minds, No movement that
aims at improvement and progress attacks the student element,
because students are the friends of these things.
In order to appeal to thinking people it is necessary to appeal to the intelligence, and so both the plump profiteer and the
communist, being unable to meet this requirement, show hostility to the University. The one calls it a nest of radicals, and the
other denounces it as a corrupt institution of bourgeois learning.
In point of fact, it is neither. The student has access to all the
thought and all the learning of the ages, and he is at liberty to
form his mind according to the dictates of his quickened reason
and in the light of his broadened understanding—provided that
he had a workable endowment of these mental gifts when he entered the institution.
Help For The Council
Kditor, Ubyaaey,
Dear Sir:
The student body of the University
of B.C. pledged itself to raise ten
thousand dollar**: further it hat* a*
greed to a compulsory Individual levy
which will realize that amount, In
tho interests of expediency the Stu*
dents' Council ha. approached the
Board of Governor** with the view to
having the bursar collect the levy
along with the second term fees. The
Board refused the responsibility, for
legal reasons. It might also have told
the members of Council that they wore
shifting a responsibility which was
purely their own.
Each student signs a pledge on
entering this university; by virtue
of this the students give Council the
right to collect this fee. If the Students' Council wishes to put self-
government to the acid test it should
not go to the Board of Governors but
to the students themselves, Let it
set the final date for payment of second term fees as the final date for the
payment bf the Ave dollar levy, payment of the said levy to be made to the
treasurer of the A.M.S., at the Council
office, acknowledgement by the treasurer of said payment by an official
receipt to be the guarantee of payment. The success of this would
determine whether self-government is
to stand or fall.

Suggestions From a Grad
Editor,  Ubyssey—-
Dear Sir:
From the unbiased viewpoint of a
grad who, having arrived at seven-
thirty, managed to get a seat on
Theatre Night, may I offer a few
suggestions for the management of
future  Homecoming programmes.
I observed many graduates who,
although they arrived long before
the programme was scheduled to be-
?;in, were nevertheless forced to sit
n the aisles or remain standing.
Would it not be feasible to exclude
the Sophomore, as well as the Freshman Class on this occasion, thus providing accomodation for those whom
the entertainment is intended.
Also I would suggest that Theatre
Night be held on Saturday as heretofore, as, from the opinions I have
heard expressed, I believe the majority of grads who cannot be in town
on Friday night would prefer to at-1
tend Theatre Night rather than the
Basketball Games, The games are, of
course very enjoyable, but have not
quite the fame spirit of reunion
which, to my mind, is the essence of
tbe   Theatre   Night   programme.
May I take this opportunity to congratulate the Junior Member on the
manner in whieh the programme, as a
whole, was carried out. If, however, he will pardon one more constructive criticism, the general opinion seems to be that it was too long,
and I believe better results would be
obtained by giving all skits a maxi-
um time of fifteen minutes.

Chang Suey
Chapter Hi
When I came to myself, Anderson
was fanning me with a telephone directory,
"wake up, Oscar," he urged,
"You've got a nine o'clock."
At these direful words, so often
hissed into my ears by wrathful
parents I staggered to my feet,
Anderson wasted no time but drag-
fred me from the house. We dived
nto Anderson's waiting Studebakor
and after half an hour's work got
under way and dashed along Broadway.
Suddenly as we passed Maple
Street, Anderson gasped and swerved
into the middle of tht* road, as a horde
of Chinamen, mounted on bicycles
dashed out of the side street.
"Followers of the Grand Snard,"
gasped  Anderson.    "They  are  after
He stamped on the accelerator and
the speedometer mounted. Ten miles
an hour. Fifteen! Seventeenl The
ear roared and rattled as we dashed
at full tilt through the traffic. But
the Chinamen still pursued us.
"We are gaining on them," I cried.
"If only they don't use their wing-
Even as I spoke, one of those dread
Oriental weapons whizzed past the
car. Anderson set his teeth grimly
and kopt on. We roared on to Granville Street and swung on four wheels
around the corner and down the hill.
I glanced back.
"Saved," I crowed, "they are foiled.
The traffic signal is against them."
'Good," voiced Anderson. "Now
for Chang Suey."
We threaded the traffic of Granville
and Hastings Streets and finally
plunged into that labyrinth of slums
that surrounds Hogan s Alley. Heedless of the remarks of divers denizens
of the dives, such as "sightseers huh,"
and "rah, rah boys," we continued in
silent determination,
All at once a figure darted out from
the side walk and blocked our path,
"The Golden Lotus!" I bleated.
"Stop the ship—I mean car."
With a grind of brakes Anderson
drew up to the kerb.
"What the hell," he cried.
"What the hell," I echoed, "Where
have you been."
"I have had a terrible time," she
gabbled. "The Discipline Committee
caught me smoking in the Pub and
arrested me. Jean Belford, the new
disciplinarian, hailed me before the
committee and only Chang Suey
!■ lived  me."
"Chang Suey saved vou," 1 blurted.
"Now I'll tell one."
"Not here, Oscar," Anderson interposed hurriedly. "This isn't the
Lower Common Room."
The Golden Lotus continued.
"Yes, Chang Suey—with his crime
wave. Just as the chairman was
about to deliver judgment, a change
came over his face and he congratulated me instead, Then the whole
committee borrowed cigarettes and
when I left they were discussing the
formation of a collection of silence
lecterns, The Crime Wave had got
"And how did you got here?"
queried  Anderson sternly.
"Johnny Carsteps brought me in a
car he borrowed. He was looking
for Flo."
"You go home and tell your mother
that Chang Suey certainly made a
wonderful job of wrecking the university," commented Anderson,
With a whimper, the Golden Lotus
slunk off.
"You brute," I snorted, "to abandon that beautiful young lady here.
"Oscar," Anderson fired buck. "The
crime wave has got her. She pinched
your watch as she talked to you."
"Great heavens, you are right. It
is gone."
"Migosh," howled Anderson, "so is
"Never mind," he continued. "We
must get ('hang Suey first, Hogan's
Alley is the next turning."
We drove off and pulled ii|i nt tIndoor of a battered building.
"This is the place," commented
Arnold and pointed to a sign over
the door, which read, "('bung Suey's
Laundry. By appointment to the Librarian."
Even as he spoke there was a babble of voices and around the corner
came the followers of the Grand
"Come on," cursed Anderson, and
dragged me into the laundry, bolting
the door behind.

(Tn be continued)
I often wonder whether any professor is haunted hy the realization of
his influence upon the susceptible
minds of that part of the younger
generation thut spends four winters
at this institution.
Does not the experience of examining scores of more or less successful
imitations of his own pet theorizing,
carefully antl trustingly reproduced
uiion examination papers, force upon
him the realization of his hideous
responsibility ?
The position is a dilemma. Either
the so-culled students are prostituting
their own opinions for the sake of a
few murks, or else they have accumulated (not necessarily assimilated) the ready-to-wear opinions of
their instructor, and are prepared to
face life with an outlook based upon
someone else's dogma which they have
never troubled to examine.
It may possibly titillate the conceit of some to hear their self-contrived slogans pronounced as clinching statements of incontrovertable
wisdom, but surely a knowledge of
how little the echoer usually understands the tenets he repeats should
drive a shudder of nausea through any
conscientious man.
The crux of the matter is that, under an educational system which
bases achievement upon mere memorization rather than upon the stimulation of reason, mental stagnation is
the unavoidable price. As long as
examinations place a bonus upon
parrotry the average student shall
continue to say, like Dickens' Mr.
Bagnet—"Tell  him  my opinion."

Dear R.A.P.
Please tell mc what to do as Mac
is mad at me over nothing at all. He
asked me to go and see him play
soccer and I went and after it was
all over (It really wasn't the least
bit interesting) he asked me what I
thought of the game and I told him
he was just wonderful and had won
the game for his Alma Mater and
he said the hell vou say we didn't
win. And I said weren't our team
the ones in red sweaters and he said
no in a nasty voice. How was I to
know that the varsity team always
wears yellow sweaters? And now
Mac will hardly speak to me and he
owes me three bus tickets.
Yours Clementina.
P.S. He is a brute.

Or even an Aggie might ask
As long as he is a cave-man
And rarries a  pocket flask!
I've always wished for a strong man,
So I turn to the English squad
To tackle my little want ad,
And lay it low on the sod.

November 14, 1930
The Canadian Rugby squad has
fought and lost. The Thanksgiving
game was the best exhibition of the
Canadian code ever seen in this Province and the team deserves a great
deal of praise for the splendid form
it displayed playing without the
services of its star half back who
was on the injured list.
♦     *     *
The lack of student support which
the Varsity teams receive Is remarkable. At Monday's game there were
scarcely two hundred of the faithful
while another hundred trooped along
to tha Point to watch tha oval totem
wallow in tha mud. Most of the students at thia institution have no col*
lege spirit because they do not seem
to know the meaning of that much
discussed phrase. Some of the bright
■parks do not oven know where or
whon the Varsity athletes play.
The Arta '80 Road Race ls a good
instance of this lethargy. This is a
race on our own campus and yet what
a pitiful smattering of students
bothered to take time from their lunch
to watch it.
The College teams have not had the
best of luck with regard to injuries
this year. The English Rugby fifteen was forced to play a McKechnie
Cup game without the services of
several first string artists. The Canadian Ruggers were pretty thoroughly
wrecked on the prairies while the
Soccer men have a long list of casualties all more or less serious.
The Education Class of this year
deserves a great big hand. There are
only eighteen men in the class yet
it haa entered a down town basketball league and all inter-class competition on the campus. Furthermore
the teaching brigade always fields
full teams although very often some
of the members know little of the
sport in which they are playing. Yet
" .  for the sake of the class.
This is an unusual state of affairs to
is an
find here and this an example of what
we would call genuine class spirit.
According to the league schedule the
Varsity Grass Hockey team will tangle with Crusaders at Brockton Point
on Saturday, while the U.B.C. team
try their strength against the league
leaders, Vancouver, at Connaught
Park on the same day.
If the Varsity contingent can produce the form they exhibited in their
cup-tie with Vancouver last week,
they should have no trouble in taking the measure of the holy warriors.
In a previous encounter at the flrst
of the season the two teams fought
to a draw, Since then the students
have improved enormously and last
Saturday's performance against Vancouver is as good as any the Crusaders
have recorded when opposed by the
league   leaders.
The teams for the two matches will
be chosen from the following, Varsity,
Dicks, Lee, Jakeway, Sangha, Semple,
Hughes, Merritt, Ward, Knight, Desbrisay, Jackson and Stevenson. U.
B.C.: Richmond, Johnstone, Spurrier,
Baker, Stenner, Bischoff, Barr, Har-
court, McRae, Dorrell, Venables, Langton.

Senior Hoop Stars
To Open Series
In V.A.C. Gym
With one of the most thoroughly
strenuous training seasons ever undertaken by a Blue and Gold Hoop ag-
(■regation completed, the Varsity Senor "A" Basketball team will open
the season at Bob Brown's Fifth
Avenue Emporium on Saturday evening when it opposes the up-and-
coming Crusaders In the first Van*
couver game of the V and D League.
Following the annual struggle
against the Orads last week, Dr.
Montgomery, the Student mentor, has
been busy Ironing nut the rough spots
in his squad's offensive, and Ts confident that his proteges will turn back
the Knights In the coming encounter.
lied by Arnold Henderson, veteran
skipper of the Collegian Basketers,
the Point Grey squao will present
plenty of opposition when they trot
on the Maple Court at Athletic Park
to face last year's runners-up in the
Vancouver and District League race.
Working with Henderson at guard
will be Bob Chapman, one of the few
lettermen back this season, and Bob
Osborne, sensational Freshman candidate, who starred with Magee High
School last fall. For forwards, Dr.
Montgomery will use Laurie Nicholson and Cyril Lee, both members of
former Senior teams. Pi Campbell,
who hails from the Interior, Randy
Turvo and Frank Alpen.
Rowing Club Meets
U.B.C. in Miller
Cup Series
The Varsity Senior Miller Cup ruggers will tangle in a return engagement with the strong Rowing Club
Saturday at Brockton Point. In the
flrst game of the season Varsity led
until the last minute of play when
the Oarsmen tied up the count with
a fighting finish. Varsity finished
well in the McKechnie cup fixture
Monday and is less likely to peter
out in the second half of tomorrow's
tilt. The whole squad is in good condition and should consolidate its position at the top of the league scramble.
Judging from the league table it
will be "just too bad" when the pace
setting B. C. Telephones tangle with
the crippled Varsity Senior Soccermen at Powell Street, Saturday.
In the initial game of the s ason
the Students nosed out the Hello
boys in a bitterly fought struggle,
but the latter have not lost a point
since and have been anxiously awaiting the return match.
On the other hand the collegians
have been displaying in and out form
of late, and after playing so well
Monday, are likely to do anything
tomorrow. In addition the long list
of injuries has been growing, in fact
the majority of limns around the
campus belong to the Soccer Club.
Several holes have to be filled In the
line up while Manager Sanderson,
soccer despot, has threatened radical
changes on account of slip shod football.
McGregor will probably be retained
to watch the ball trickle past, while
Roberto and Chalmers will be in
their usual places at back. H. Wright
and Kozoolin will be in their regular
positions but left half and the forward positions remain to be decided
upon owing to the injury to Costain
which may keep him out of the fracas.
If Costain plays, Dickson will probably hold down inside right, this being the only change. In the event of
the star centre being unable to play
Waugh will be brought in at left half,
Al Todd moving to centre, Buckley
to inside left, while David Todd will
toddle along the touchline at outside
Junior Gridders Play
Collegians This Week
Although the Varsity Junior Canadian Ruggers are in rather bad shape
after their recent battering at the
hands of the Dodekas, nevertheless,
they have good hopes of taking their
game for this week. On Saturday
the Juniors tangle with Vancouver
College, in the second game of the
Inter-scholastic league navlng won
their flrst game 6-1.
The struggle will take place at
the Varsity oval, at 2.30 Saturday
afternoon. Since the abortive attempt at a Senior City League has
failed there will be a number of good
men available who were unable to
play before.
The students have drawn a bye
for this week in the Junior City league, while the teams in second and
third place play off for the right to
meet them in the finish.
The U. B. C. Women's Grass Hockey
Team will play the Ex-Britannia
squad at Connaught Park, 2.30 Saturday afternoon. In case of rain
the game will be changed to Strath-
cona Park at 3.30.
