Margeson Marches
Pub. To Victory
Piercing a waiver-strewn Council defense, the Pub basketball team score a powerful 29—12 victory over their student
administrator foes in the Gymnasium today, led by their gallant
hero General John Margeson.
It  was  the  twenty-fifth  consecutive
win    for   the   Fourth   Estote,    and    u

crushing blow to H. David Lumsden,
leader of the opposition who had for-
costecl an upset win for his Tin Gods.
The Pub used a discarded explosion
ball theory found in the Gym dust.
INELIGIBILITY
Although handicapped by an official
ruling    declaring    their    flrst    string.
composed    of    Van    Vllet,    Bardsley,
Wllloughby,   McConnell,   and  Lusetti,
ineligible,    the    scribes    nevertheless
maintained   a   calm   superiority   over
the  councillors -who  were  garbed   in
something   swept   up   on   the   intersection  of 18th and Chestnut streets.
Using a shifty Notre Dame box
formation, the scribe* ran riot ln
tho   tint   quarter  sitting  through
for   three   quick   counters,   until
Council  tore  the  hoop  from  the
backboard, passing It through tho
crowd, collecting caution money.
Taking  a  second period  27-0   lead,
the   scriveners  pulled   off   their  star
line   composed   of    Margeson,    Watt,
Paton,     McKlnley,     Berton,      Ferry,
Claridge,   Backman,  and  Garrett   (in
absentia), and leaving the Goon Gods
alone on the floor, retired to a quiet
corner   where   Margeson   rolled   four
straight naturals.
They returned to the game just as
Lumsden, atop a ladder leaning a-
gainst the Pub hoop, dropped the
frog skin through for the twelfth
counter.
Funeral services will be held at
Centre and Hannoe, tomorrow. No
flowers  by  request.
A large-scale qui/, contest providing for lie.n competition between
every in.rested group of people on
the campus is be ng planned by the
C.S.A.D.C.
The first section of this contest will
get under way in the auditorium on
Monday, November 18, with tho gonial Colonel Queerey (identity os yet
unknown) as master of ceremonies.
The C.A.S.D.C. are hoping to procure
some obliging member of the faculty
for this role.
Joyce Carter and Jim Melvlin havo
volunteered to carry out intensive
research work ln connection with
contest questions, but will solicit the
aid  of all  interested  students.
Arts Sweaters
Appear Soon
Arts sweaters will appear on
the campus on Tuesday, Sandy
Nash, president of the A.M.U.S.
told the Ubyssey yesterday.
Co-eds as well as men can have
them now, arrangements having been completed to have
them made in smaller sizes.
The sweaters ore regulation pattern, with two gold stripes on thc
left arm ond the number of the yeoi
in gold in the upper left hand corner. They have plain cuifs without
stripes and  o  zipper  clown  the  front
Forty-three of the sweaters hav.
been sold to dote, but A.M.U.S. executives are still not satisfied. Al!
that lt Is necessary to do to g-et one Is
to be measured and pay $4.35 at thc
A.M.S.  office.
Another A.M.U.S. Mixer will be
held in Brock Hall on Saturday, November 16. All arrangements hava not
been made as yet, but Sid Poulton's
Varsity orchestra will play again.
Moro information about It will be
given   out   next   week.
BOB BONNER
President of L.S.E., Bob will be
Fouks' running mate at the Seattle
symposium which Is to debate
.American foreign policy Wednesday.
FORUM DEBATE
The Parliamentary Forum decisively defeated the resolution that the
nations of thc world oclopt a policy
of free trad-e in pooce time, at a meeting   yesterday   noon.
Fred Midclleton presented the case
for tho House and Leonard Korsch
led    the    victorious   opposition.
Waivers are on the campus once more, but this time for
the most important purpose they have ever had. At an Alma
Mater meeting Wednesday noon, the student body enthusiastically endorsed the Students' Council's plans for a Red Cross
campaign, and voted to sign waivers for the balance of their
caution money instead of for two dollars as was originally
suggested.
Sign the waivers ! We are not in the armed forces ourselves, but we can help out those who are by helping the Red
Cross. What is the sacrifice of a few dollars compared to the
great mass of human misery and suffering in the world today,
particularly in our own motherland? People are putting up
with things we can hardly envisage. We are not suffering ourselves, we are not actually fighting for our country, but we
have the opportunity of helping those who are.
TUUM EST
We must not leave the work to others. It ia up to all of
us to work for the common object, for those with more time
to devote more time, for those with less time to devote what
they can. Only by co-operation can we succeed to any degree
at all.
The campaign this year is to be short and concentrated.
Well-organized committees are seeing that the waivers reach
every student, and that as many as possible are signed. We can
do our part by signing them ourselves and by making sure
that everyone we know has signed one. Let's make the campaign a success!

Enthusiastic Students Rush To Sign Waivers
In Reply To Patriotic Services Appeal
By MARION MacDONALD
U.B.C. students have proved that they can pull together
for a good cause.
With the largest representation at any A.M.S. meeting this
year,  Sciencemen,  Aggies and Artsmen  alike  united  at noon
Wednesday in a packed auditorium to vote unanimously for the
donation of caution money to the Red Cross.

Arts-Aggie Prom Affair
Goes  Really Oriental
Wreaths of incense will float
slowly toward a ceiling decorated with multi-colored Chinese
lanterns, while dancers sway to
the subtle rhythms of weird
oriental music, at this year's
Arts-Aggie Ball.
Everything clown to the smallest
detail has heen chosen in keeping with the Chinese motif. Even
Chnug Suey will be there. Pcr-
hnpu thc most outstanding feature will be the Chinese floor
show, which, however, Is to he
kept a mystery until the night
actually   arrives.
To odd further to the exotic oriental atmosphere, a slave gong will
i.uirk   the   end   of   eaeh   dance.

The   flrst   Inter-collegiate   debate   of<s
the   year  will  bo held  simultaneously
at   the   University   of   Washington  and
on   thc   U.B.C.   Campus,   Wednesday.
It will take the form of a symposium, which allows; more freedom of
discussion and is more informative.
The general subject will be "American foreign policy"—a subject which
is   vital   at   the   present   time.
Representing U.B.C. in Seattle will
he Arthur Fouks and Bob Bonner,
the same team which went to Washington last year. Both hold a silver
award and aro accomplished speakers. Fouks is president of the Parliamentary Forum while Bonn-er is
president   of   L.S.E.
Austin Delany and Elspeth Munro
will oppose the visiting Seattle team.
This year has seen an almost complete absence of Inter-colleglate
competition in athletics, so it remains
to other lines of endeavour to uphold the honour of our University.
Thus the activities of the Parliamentary Forum loom as a considerable
factor   In   Varsity   representation.

TOTEM CALLS
FOR SLOGAN
AGAIN
The Totem haa to have a slogan!
Why?    Because lt has to .that's all.
Studenta are expected to have
nightmares if necessary, or do whatever they like In order to think up
a suitable slogan. Ernest Alexander,
last year's winner with "Gottum
Totem", will verify the fact that it
is worth hours of brain-racking to
win  a Totem.
DOLLAR DOWN
Two birds can be killed with one
stone by paying a dollar down on
the Totem at the same time os putting in entries for the slogan contest.
The dollar will be refunded to tho
lucky   winner.
All entries must be brought to
tho Pub by Thursday, November
II. The winning slogan will be
published In the Ubyssey of November  15.
Slogans should be short and snappy
—ones with plenty of zip, Th-ey
should catch the eye and hold thc
attention of Totem readers, and a-
bove   all   they   should   be   original.
'Rayvite' Natural B.C. Mud
Puts Finlay In The Game

Speakers nt the Saturday meeting
of the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers will bo W. Earl Mills, whose
subject is "The Almy B'vle-r", and
Sidney C. Rooney, on "Manufacture of
Rayon  Pulp."     Meeting  opens at 11:45.
Presence of Graham Finlay, star
Thunderbird half-bock, in last Saturday's grid final, was only made |4os-
sible by the application of a mysterious natural British Columbia product, ,yet to be placed on the market, it was revealed this week.
MIRACLE  MUD
Finlny's remarkable playing
Inst: Saturdoy night would not
hnve been possible had It not been
for the continued application of a
mud compound found In a natural
state some 300 miles north of Vancouver, which removed nil traces
of pain from thc grlddcr's Injured left knee.
The compound, whose commercial
name is "Rayvite", was also instrumental in removing pain from the inured right leg of Tommy Williams.
Though Williams saw a mere five
minutes of play, even 'his WTuld not
have been possible had it not been
for the new miracle mud.
"WONDERFUL STUFF"
"That sure Is wonderful stuff,"
wns Tommy's nmnzed rcmnrk In
tho Cafeterln this week. .."I didn't
think it would work, but It did.
If: removed every trace of pnln
from my llmhs — something no
ether  compound  wns able to do."
<S>-
Sclentists in th-e city and at the
University have been working to develop tho compound for the post several years ond havo achieved amazing success with it. It has already
been placed in the medicine kit of
Guy Patrick's Lions after tho hockey
mogul had become convinced of its
amazing   action,
Scientists are still at loss to explain
Rayvitv's mysterious action, but describe it os "pulling the pain out of
the limb." The material itself has
the appearance of plastic grey mud.
It will be put on the commercial
market,    its   discoverers   announced.
"Too Many Girls"
Hold Party Nov. 15
Too many girls Is the problem of
tho Education Class Executive in
planning their first social function of
tho year. Considering this, they plan
a big party on November 15, ot Huron
Lodge which will feature gomes and
on   amateur  show.
Tlio Education Faculty and their

Re-Dedication
In Brock Hall
Of Placque
On Monday, November 11, a party
of iv?o officers and approximately 80
men will serve as guards of honour
at the re-dedication of the memorial
plaque commemorating the services
of the 196th Western Universities
Battalion.
A ceremony Including an address
by Mr.  C. W. Tysoe of the 106th
Battalion,  will  be  held  In  Brock
Hall   at   10:30,   Immediately   preceding  the  dedication  services  to
be conducted at 11 o'clock by the
Reverend W. Deans.
Also participating  in  Remembrance
Day   ceremonies   will   be   a   party   of
one   officer   and   30   men   in  uniform,
under    the    command    of    Lieutenant
Flelshma.    They will take part in the
service   at  the   Cenotaph.
that part of this sum be raised by
individual waivers of the balance of
caution money due individuals signing the waivers." Not a dissenting
voice waa heard.
Th-e meeting began with an address
by M. F.  Wardhaugh, Team Captain
of the 1940 Patriotic Service Appeal,
ln which he described the many activities of the 46 agencies of the Service and the ever Increasing need for
voluntary  contributiona.   He thanked
students for  their  donation  of  $1800
last   year,   and   expressed   the   hope
that even a larger stun be raised In
thla time  of even  greater  stress.
"I   appeal   to   you,   urge   you,
plead with you to help," he said
In  conclusion  quoting  Stat  James
Barrio In a famous address to St.
Andrew's College, "Do not stand
aside, despising and dlsbellevelng,
but come In and help!"
ALL RETURNABLE
In the ensuing discussion, Nancy
Carr, President of All-Phrateres,.
moved the donation of individual
waivers of $2.00 of returnable caution
money. Doug Hume's amendment of
"any amount desired" was defeated
on the grounds that the Bursar would
have excessive book-keeping, and
that a definite amount should be set.
Arvid Backman then moved that the
whole balance should be signed over,
and with this amendment, the motion
was   passed,   unanimously.
Upon the motion of Pierre Berton, a committee wns formed of
tho Presidents of the Scienccmen's,
Artsmen's, Agriculture's, Men's
and Women's Undergraduate Societies, the Commerce class president, the L.S.E. president, and a
representative from the Publications Board, to handle arrangements for raising additional sums.
The meeting decided to set no definite objective, but to go all-out with
the sky the limit, and with this decision, hundreds of students present
at the meeting signed the waivers
distributed   by   Council.

We are introducing a new weekly feature in the UBYSSEY for students who
like to read something more serious than
the general run of news stories. It is a
column to be devoted to the arts, letters,
music, and related topics, written by different contributors. This week, we are
starting with two columns, and we hope
to present one In each Friday Issue hereafter.

Pearl Castings
By Lister Sinclair
It is a great relief in a world filled with
pessimism to find someone who is at least
cheerfully pessimistic.
Under the nostalgic influence of Steinbeck and O'Neill, modern American literature
is rapidly becoming an agglomeration of
gloomy anecdotes anent mentally irregular
rustics whose outstanding feature is the richness of their lurid vocabularies.
We freely admit that these two authors
themselves are adepts in the macabre art of
dispensing undiluted gloom, but the efforts of
their imitators resemble a bag of elephant
manure rotting at the bottom of a deep, still
pool. We cast no slurs on O'Neill's cold
tragedy or Steinbeck's dull hopelessness; we
carefully reserve our slurs for those who imitate their realism without achieving their
force.
GARBAGE TRUCKS
Realism for realism's sake is not a good
thing. An accurate account of the sordid details of life frequently fails to reveal clearly
any of the faults which are causing these deplorable conditions.
The Realist may, in such cases, be likened
to one who follows in the wake of a garbage
truck. He complains bitterly to passers-by of
the smell and carefully describes its subtle
nuances. Whereas if he took the trouble to
look about him instead he could easily obviate
the nuisance.
Mere cataloguing of the details of life
is of no assistance. What is wanted is
someone who can gaze "with direct eyes"
and indicate the origins of the disturbances. The literary means whereby this
desirable end can be achieved is SATIRE,
and the greatest Uving American satirist is
Mrs. Dorothy Parker, who is the individual
mentioned in the first sentence.
This article is a review of Mrs. Parker's
book After Such Pleasures. (This information
will no doubt come as a surprise to many).
The book, which may be found in the library,
is a collection of short stories of the most urbane and polished character.
VICTIMS WRITHE
They are extremely witty.    They are also
occasionally  daring,   though   never  lividly  so.
They contain the very maximum of quotable
apophthegms,  which should  recommend them
to wits in need of witticisms.    They are all intriguing   stories,  each  producing  a  very   clear
effect,  though as a rule they lack the "whiplash" ending which made O. Henry famous.
Each story is a remarkable model of
smooth, precise denunciation of some social
evil.    The victims of Mrs. Parker's attacks
writhe ingloriously in the cold glare of her
searching gaze.
Her mass libel on a certain Yale Prom is
an example of what we mean.
Just as *sh"t» left this function, she gazed
bleakly around and remarked "If all the girls
in this room are laid end to end, I shan't be
at all surprised." Elsewhere she commented
after a certain play, "Miss Hepburn ran
through the gamut of emotion from A to B."
THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, November 8th, 1940
This particular volume contains only stories; Dorothy Parker is also a talented poetess,
composing short pithy poems of the same cynical nature as her stories.
But I, despite expert advice
Keep doing things I think are nice,
And  though to good I never come—
Inseparable my nose and thumb !
There  is  nothing   quite   like   the  stinging   denunciations of Dorothy Parker; her works are
like  coruscating beacons illuminating the follies of this confused, incoherent age.    They are
unique   commentaries   on   the   current   eccentricities in man's behaviour.

British Music
By Dan Tatroff
Modern British music, in its expression of
the national spirit and in the great number
of its worlcl-famous composers, excells all other
contemporary music. In no other land are
there so many composers who have freed themselves from the traditions of form and harmony laid down by German masters. With
the firm basis of folk music, our writers have
now created forms and harmonies that are both
modern and national.
ELIZABETHAN MUSIC
There was another age a few centuries
back when England held a prominent place in
the musical world; this age is called a "golden age", and it was characterized by the Elizabethan spirit. Students at this university will^
recall several recitals of such music — there
was Marion Snowden last spring, Healey Wil-
lan during Summer Session, and then Viola
Morris and Victoria Anderson on Friday last.
It comes as a shock to find that the first
composer, in this modern sense of the word,
was an Englishman who died in 1453. This
man, John Dunstable, is an almost mythical
figure, a sort of English Orpheus who was
even credited with the invention of counterpoint — a feat obviously beyond the abilities
of a single person. Add to this that he was
even confused with St. Dunstan, who had died
more than four centuries before, and was reputedly an astrologer and mathematician, and
this sums up what is know of the man who
was probably Chaucer's most gifted artistic
contemporary.
The music of the Elizabethan age is often
called Tudor music. The list of its composers
is very long — it includes many of the poets,
notably Thomas Campion, and most members
of the Court, for example, Henry VIII. Musical composition was at this time considered
as one of the exercises of refined living. What
is more, nearly everyone played an instrument or sang, and family gatherings for the
purpose of music-making were very common
Under the sympathetic patronage of
Henry VIII, several promising composers
make their appearance, chief of whom are
Christopher Tye and Thomas Tallis. During
Elizabeth's reign, madrigals became very popular. They were freely published and sung
everywhere; so great was their popularity that
madrigal singing became an accepted part of
social intercourse, and a gentleman would take
his part in a madrigal then as readily as he now
takes a hand at bridge, and to much better
purpose. Consequently, we have a host of
exquisite works by such men as William Byrd
(1543-1623), Thomas Morley, John Wilbye, and
especially   Orlando   Gibbons   (1583-1625).
SEVENTEENTH CENTURY
Tudor music was continued by a host of
famous musicians, including Weelkes, Dow
land, Lawes, C. Gibbons, Robert Jones, and
John Bull. After the Restoration in 1660, we
have Matthew Locke, John Blow, and Henry
Purcell.
The man in whom Elizabethan music con
tinued to develop was Henry Purcell (1658-
1695), recognized as the most important master of his time, and probably of all Britain's
musical history. Purcell being court composer,
it was his duty to compose complimentary
odes to the King, commemorating special occasions. His contributions includes a great deal
of instrumental music; his chorus is frequently
preceded by symphonies (overtures) in two
movements. But these are often somewhat
dance-like in character. At the present time
their performance in church is often questioned.
He had a great gift of melody, which is
English in flavour. He rivalled the Elizabethans in his mastery of wedding a melody to
words with the correct verbal accent. His
orchestration prefigures the methods of Bach.
In harmony he was an experimenter. Henry
Davey has said of Purcell, "He kept the tradition of vitality of the great Elizabethans, and
brought to it an individuality nourished in the
environment of the French master Lully".
With Purcell's death, British music of any international significance came to a stop, and it
is two hundred years before another musical
genius appears.
(To Be Continued)
On Canadian Campuses from Dalhousle, "the college by the sea", to
the University of British Columbia
(which would seam to have a perfect
right to call itself "the college by
the ocean"), men students are busily
engaged ln getting used to a college
routine new to the majority of them.
The' joint Universities-Government
compulsory military training scheme
for studenta has made learning to be
a soldier an integral part of thla
year's college curriculum. By now,
with preparative arrangements practically completed and such things as
time-table adjustments taken care of,
it is no longer being regarded aa an
lntereating novelty but rather as an
important necessary course—a prerequisite, if you will, to responsible
citizenship here in Canada at the
present time.
"MOOT" COURT MEETS) . . .
Dalhousl-'s Supreme Moot Court,
verbal playground of the law studenta, is still going strong. It waa recently officially opened for the current session.
First case on the calendar this year
was the old libel affair, "Voussoupoff
vs. M.tro-Goldwyn-Meyer Pictures,
Ltd.", a legal battle which was disposed of last year by the very same
chambers ,or so the flies tell us. The
Princess Youssoupoff sued the picture
company for making a film suggesting
she was mixed up with that Mad
Monk, Rasputin.
The sophistry of the opposing lawyers was brilliant, reports the Dalhousie Gazette. One of these gentlemen displayed a profound knowledge
of the "Doctrine of Senual Satisfaction", but his opponent defeated him
with the question, "Did she fall or
was   she   pushed?"
More power to thes. Demostheneses
and these Darrows from the East. No?
G. 8t S. IN PRODUCTION . . .
Alberta and McMaster Universities
ore going in for Gilbert and Sullivan
in a big way. The Philharmonic Society of the University of Alberta Is
working on a performance of the
universal favourite, "The Mikado";

COPS ON THE CAMPUS ...
The   University  of  Toronto has
four    special    campus    policemen
covering the grounds.   These gentlemen   declare  that   although   they
(the cops) are kept busy, the students   are   a   law-abiding   bunch.
"They   have   always   treated   us
respectfully," says the chief.
The cops are responsible for everything  from  preventing the   appropriation of light bulbs by wicked freshmen  to  detecting  fires.
All of which prompts us, since we
wero just mentioning Ollbert and
Sullivan, to remark, "A pollceman'.
life   is not   a happy  one".
HARDEST SUBJECT . . .
The moot difficult subject studied
In college has been found to be organic chemistry, according to the
Bureau of Educational Surveys, says
the Argosy. Other subjects, in order
of difficulty: statistics, physics, general psychology, Inorganic chemistry,
principles of economics, political
science, general biology, history of
the middle ages, history of Europe,
American government and English
Literature.

CHAPTER 7
WHAT THE RED CROSS SAID AT THE
A.M.S. MEETING
OR
WAIVE THE MONEY TO ME, HONEY
In the eei-i. green light of the torture chamber Chang Suey's face
shone malevolently as he leered at
his victim, Oscar Scrlbblewell. Oscar,
gazing around the cavern, felt in his
stomach the sinking feeling he always had when he walked through
the slum of Sasamat after midnight.
Bottles of distilled Caf coffee, El
Stuffo, Geesil's Goo, and other deadly
poisons lined the walls. Beneath them
were wing lings, black Jacks, knuckle
dusters, books of Maths 3 probl-ems
complete with tables, and finally a
huge pile of ruaty rifles */*\d ailed
rags—enough fatigue duty to last six
months.
And there anu4 thla par^phenalia
of evil y/tm that Bmesoma mees, the
corpse  oi the  Bookstore floor.
Two of Chank Suey's brutal
henchmen seised Qaciur and truss-
ed hts fore and hind feet In the
approved butcher shop manner.
Then they roped him a a rickety
stool of awkward height which he
recognised aa a furnishing of the
Zoo lab, and left the reporter
cringing and helpless ln the power
of the fiend Chang Suey.
ORIENTAL THEOLOG?
Through hia stringy moustache,
tlie, wicked Oriental sneered. "Insignificant one, you shall suffer as
no Senior -ever suffered before, for
you have dared challenge me, the
great Chang Suey, king of torturers.
While I was writing my thesis on
"The Theory and Practice of Torture" at Yewn Yun College In Tibet,
fraternity presidents came to me for
advice on how to treat their pledges.
"After years of research, I have
produced the ultimate Instruments of
torture, 'The Eternal Military Lecturer'."
He rolled forward a life-like dummy in a khaki uniform, and placed it
in front of the helpless reporter. The
fl-end twisted the brass buttons on
the dummy's pockets, and it began
ln a loud and piercing voice to recite a page and a half of instructions
on how to stand at attention.
Over and over It reared the
complete Instructions while Oscar
on his comfortable stool remembered with longing the Restmore-
manufactured seats in which he
was accustomed to doze during
military lectures.
DRAT DAT DUMMY
Through the lecturer's chatter he
heard the evil cackle of the fiendish
oriental. "The dummy Is powered by
a perpetual motion machine—it will
continue to speak during the few
hours you will be sane ^nough to
hear it. To relieve the monotony, at
Avs minute intervals my guards will
force down your throat a patented
mixture of Chemical Engineers' experiments and condensed dishwater,"
And still the military lecture went
on.
With a final oily grin the fiend
dripped slowly from the room. Two
of his guards entered carrying a
co_ bottle full of a corrosive green
fluid,   a   funnel   and   a  stop   watch.
And still the mlltary lecture roared
chattered  op.

dummy they slezecl Oscar's nose
firmly, tilted his head back and
poured a beaker-full of the green
muck down his throat. He spluttered like a Beastly Electric bus coming
down the home stretch, and aske^)
for castor oil to take the taste out
of his mouth.
And still the mlltary lecture roared
on.
Hour after hour the torture continued, and slowly but surely the
reporter felt his always delicate grip

The shadow* of the cavern seemed
alive—even, to hla fevered imagine-,
tlbh," the mangled corpse on the floor
seemed  to   move.
Ha was right; lt waa moving.
Carefully, silently, unobserved by the
oriental guards, a figure ln the
shadows was drawing the body Into
the corner where he stood. Even In
the dim light Oscar saw the flash of
his red sweater—it was Chas. (Smutty Smus) Barer, head of the Engineers.

Away back in '85 U.B.C. had its
Arts-Science brawls and its "depant-
lng" incidents. There was the time
when a certain aggressive leader of
the Arts was waylaid by the men of
Science and divested of his "balloons" which actually had twenty-
two inch cuffs, and was clothed In
overalls, the badge of these grease-
monkeys.
He recovered them and in the battle
royal which ensued the garment was
torn in twain and oik half of It hung
half-mast from the flag pole. Shreds
of lt were later sold as souvenirs
among the Engineers.
In those days when the wide-cuffed
trouser-l.g was coming int vogue
there was the fad of garterless sox.
Loud yellow or green sox curled
down over shoe-top and were plainly
visible beneath the wide "gob" cuf_.
The Ubyssey of the clay warned of
the posibillty of o similar fad appearing  In  feminine  hose.

Scott  And   Flynn
In   Initial   Triumph
Varsity made an impressive entry into the Inter-City
Basketball League, Wednesday night, when they registered a
decisive 52—34 win over the luckless Stacy squad at the campus
gym.
The game was the first of the cur-,
rent season In which the outco'.ie
was not assured until the final minutes, and augured well for tho Thunderbirds chances against any opposition they will meet ln the "fastest
league in Canada." It also proved
that Coach Maury Van Vliet's preseason prediction of Varsity being
"Potential Canadian Champs" was no
idle threat.
FAST PACE
Probably as much surprised as anyone at the overwhelming victory were
the players themaelves, who seemed
leery of their own merits a few daya
ago. But if they keep up the kind of
form they flashed against Stacy's
Wednesday the boys ahould really sot
the pace thla year.
The game started fast with quick
baskets    by    Pedlow    and    Scott
before   Stacy's   retaliated   with   a
free throw.   Continuing their blistering pace, the 'Birds went Into
a IS—8 lead at the first breather.
In the second quarter Jim Scott
added   six   more   points   to   help
bring  Varaity  Into  a 25—20 edge
at half time.
Varsity appeared to be slipping
just before the half, but wten the
third quarter whistle sounded, they
rushed in two baskets ond from here
on   the   verdict   was   nev-r   ln   doubt.
SECOND HALF SPLURGE
Varsity went wild in the second
half, scoring 27 points and dominating
the    play    throughout.
Jim    Scott    was    thc    Individual
star    and    leading    scorer    of    tho
night   with  21   points,   followed   by
Flynn,   who   worked   thc   hardest
gathering rebounds, with 9.
Alec Lucas, who scored 23 points
for Stacy's on Saturday night was
held to 8 and was wild with his
numerous shots.

SASKATOON, SASK., NOV. 7 (C. U. P. ) — RE-
TURN FOOTBALL GAME WITH ALBERTA, HERE,
CANCELLED DUE TO UNFAVORABLE WEATHER!
HARDY CUP IS ALBERTA'S PROBLEM.
(SIGNED: THE SHEAF)
This wire came in answer to one sent by the Ubyssey asking for further information about the football games being
played between the Universities of Saskatchewan and Alberta
parading under the name of the Hardy Cup series.
The series was to have been a home-and-home game affair,
the first game being played last Saturday at Edmonton. Alberta Golden Bears won 22—5 from the Saskatchewan Huskies.
The teams had planned to return to Saskatoon for the final this
Saturday.
Whose Hardy Cup?
However, the big bone of contention in all these proceedings waa that historic old mug which rests in our own trophy
case, the Hardy Cup.
Both prairie college papers had advertised the series as
being played for this symbol of Western Canadian Football
supremacy. When approached by Ubyssey correspondents on
the subject, U. B. C. sporting officials scoffed at the presumption of Alberta and Saskatchewan in thinking that they didn't
have the sanction of the National Universities Council for such
proceedings.
"Let them try and get it," said Men's Athletic Prexy Jim
Harmer.
Inter-U Sport Sanctioned
Yesterday news came from the University of Alberta
that they HAVE received authority from the Universities
Council to go ahead with inter-collegiate sport, and a
sports program including football, basketball, hockey and
assault at arms has been drawn up between Alberta and
Saskatchewan. The "Hardy series" was the first feature
on this inter-varsity agenda.
In describing Alberta's efforts to gain permission for col-
lego sport as usual, the Gateway's sport page says, "Battle for
thc freedom of inter-collegiate sport has not been won yet,
though.
Challenge To U.B.C.
Well, here's a challenge, U. B. C. It's rather late for football now. The Sheaf's wire shows us that they realize this on
the prairies, too, because they cancelled the second "Hardy
Cup" clash. *
BUT, it's not too late for basketball. The first game of
Thunderbirds proves we have a strong quintette this year.
Why doesn't U. B. C. get right into this inter-collegiate setup and arrange some basketball games.

Hall Swings Way
To Semi-Finals
This week saw the semifinals of
tho annual Varsity golf tourney
reached. Ormle Hall came from
behind to trounce Jim Allan, the
Hlll-Bllly golfer from Nelson, 3
and 2. Hall got off to a bad start
but played his usual sound game,
finally triumphing on the 16th
green.
Nelson's other gift to Varsity golf,
Ken McBrid., was a little luckier
than his up-country cousin. Playing
Bob Plommer, ace Varsity dlvoter,
McBride Anally copped the match 2
and 1. McBride, playing his best golf
since he took the championship last
year, went two up in the flrst two
ho.-os and held that lead right to the
end.
The Golf Club has made arrangements for an illustrated lecture
by Hal Rhoadcs, well known Vancouver pro. The time for this

West 10th at Sasamat
McKechnie 15 Play Nov. 11
As  Strong Squad Named
Coach Tom Stewart served a stern warning to Vancouver
Reps when he released the Varsity lineup for Monday's McKechnie Cup game at Brockton Point.
The downtown scribes and Vancouver supporters in general have practically figured the Thunderbirds out of this
year's Cup race.
On the campus, however, there
In a decidedly different attitude,
and small wonder. With ten
former first string players Included on the speedy, experienced
side there Is good reason for
Stewart, this year's new coach, to
stato "They'll run Vancouver off
Brockton and Into the sea."
BIO BLOCK MEN PLAY
There had been doubt that Varsity's lack of games thia year would
leave them In no shape for Monday's
battle. After this week's pracUce,
Senior Manager Tom Meredith has
boldly come out with the statement:
"Varsity la ln juat aa good shape as
Vancouver. I'll back them to win
Monday's game and the McKechnie
Cup series."
Stewart has whipped up an ex-
pnrlenced serum to match Vancouver's young and speedy group.
Veterans Jim Malnguy, Allan Wallace, and Evan Davies form the
first line. Mac Buck, Al Oardlner,
joined by newcomers Fraser Shepherd and Al Narod comprise the
second line. Backing up the first
two lines will be the experience
and weight of Jim Harmer.
At half will be another rookie,
Pat Rose, flanked at five-eights
by   shifty Gerry  Wood.
Captain Todd Tremblay. returning to the gamo after a year's absence, fills one oC the wing spots on
the fast thi'c-j line. Walter Flicker,
who played last year for Victoria
College,    is   tlie   ether   wins.
At inside threes are Ian Richards
and tho high school sprint champ.
Don   Ralston.
Last outpost of derens. will be fullback Erie Cardinal, who starred with
last   .season's   Froidi   tcam.
TEAGLE  MISSING
Two regulars from last year's team
ae unexpectedly missing. Ernie
Teagle is reported to be giving up
the   game   in   favour   of   studies   and
Ranji   Mattu  is  not considered   in  fit
shape  for the game.
After looking over the lineup,
campus critics have strong words
to reply to that new downtown
rugger expert, Austin Delany, St.,
who has written U.B.C. out of the
picture. Today, In effect, It's
"Nuts to you, Orstln". On Monday there might bo a different
story, but It's unlikely.
Congratulations
To U.B.C. on their success
in    connection    with    the
Red Cross drive !
