REVIEW OF WORLD TOUR OF
NEW ZEALAND RUGBY TEAM
Maoris Have Lost Only 8 out of 40 Games Played in tha
Last 3 Months
ft* blag**t of all the Rugby games ln the history of U. B. C. athletics
•gears on Wednesday, February 2nd, when the Varsity rugby team stacks up
J St a t*ata internationally famous and ranked among the world's bast's)* fctaland Maoris.  The outstanding big game previously was probably
historic 1980 Stanford tussle when U. B. 0. flrst sprang to fame by a con-
though unexpected viotory over the highly touted Olympic Games
ns.  This Ohristmae Varsity duplicated the feat by defeating Stanford
i, ..ut th* Stanford town is far, far below the calibre ot the Maoris.
The Maoris are returning to New Zealand after an extended tour of Great
Italn aad Prance, during which they met the leading teams In three coun-
i The Maoris are au all-native aggregation picked from the numerous
* rugby teams pt New Zealand, and after their performances in the Old
Utttry international sporting writers rank them with the All Blacks, South
Afrlean Sprlugbocks, New South Wales and the international teams ot Boot*
land, Ireland, England, Wales and Prance as the leading teams of the world.
Ottt Of almost forty games played in a period ot three months the Maoris lost
only five, a very creditable performance for no team oan be expected to follow
g* strenuous a program without being off color for some games.
Th* last touring team to pass
through Canada was the All Blacks In
1985, The All Blacks swept over all
opposition winning forty straight
games and piling up over one thousand
points without one hundred in response. They did not play Varsity's
team but in their match against Vancouver they gave the most brilliant
dllplgy ot rugby ever seen on this continent, running up a 40-0 score with
Surprising ease. Victoria tell before
them 69-4. The All-Blacks were acclaimed as the most' perfeotly co-ordinating group of athletes ever banded
.together, and ot this collection of
super-stars the one outstanding player
was a full-blooded Maori, George Ne-
pia.
The 15,000 Vancouver fans who
thrilled to the All Blacks display will
always remember Nepla's wonderful
exhibition. Everything the Ideal rugby
plsyer should posses he had in abundance—strength, agility, a superb turn
Of speed, a terrific kick, quick thinking and a fighting heart. All Maori
rugby players are said to be ot the
Same stamp, fast, powerful, courageous players, extremely spectacular in
their style ot play but slightly lacking
}n that wonderful machine-like precision ln teamwork which characterised
the All Blacks. Football fans throughout the world are watching the results
ot the Maori tour so that ln the coming game the University will receive
international athletic prominence, especially since British Columbia Is the
only University team to play against
the Maoris on their present tour.
The word Maori to most Varsity
studeufs recalls only the old school
history books in which natives of this
name were chronicled as proffering to
Captain Cook an extremely hot recep'
tion when the wandering captain
touched New Zealand shores during
his llrst Cook's world tour. This Independence ot spirit has always characterised the Maori race; and they are
classed as the highest type of uative
in the world. The Maoris can be compared not with our Indians but with
the French Canadians, a conquered
people speaking their own tongue and
being of equal status In every way,
They have their representation in
Parliament; a Maori at one time was
Premier of New Zealand.
From the first Maoris took to rugby
like the proverbial spark to the haystack. In rugby they apparently found
a sate outlet tor the energy formerly
expended ln tribal warfare, and they
progressed with such rapidity that In
1888 an all-Maori rugby team set off
on the ttrst long tour of an athletic
team. As Vancouver was then only a
small village near the Royal City, tlrit-
ish Columbia was not Included on tha
flrst Maori program. A distinctive and
original feature of this team was the
ferocious war song and rhythmic dance
which preceded every game and which
formerly had been chanted before going In to battle. The All Blacks hail
a similar wild Maori battle cry led by
Big Chief Nnpla, but the song of the
present Maoris is said to he even more
weird than that of the previous New
Xealandors. The Maoris should hear
the first response to their song of
battlo when the familiar Varsity SI-
wash outburst "Kltsilano" Is flung
back to them as tho game opens on
Wednesday afternoon.

Reform Party ln particular has secured several new recruits, and is forming a "shadow cabinet" in anticipation, of its future return to office.
The hew Premier will deliver a
speech outlining the policy of his parly

ARTS '30   DRAW
PRIOAY, JANUARY 28th
12 NOON SHARP
ALL FROSH OUT!
Washington Far Too
Fast ForVarsity
The British Columbia—Washington
clash ni the Normal Gym. Saturday
night was easily the best game that
the Varsity team has played this year.
Despite the fact that they lost, they
put up a brilliant exhibition of the
court game, Hud they checked against
the city league teams as they did in
that game they would have been well
up this year, Their shooting was erratic, but that was due largely to nervousness, more than to anything else.
They went out on the floor knowing
that they were going to be beaten but
the big worry was how badly. They
surprised themselves and the spectators by making a fine showing. On the
Washington team were three of last
year's letter men and undoubtedly, the
Huskies were a superior aggregation.
Individually the Varsity team were
about a par with the Huskies but they
fell down as a team. The only difference between the individual players
lay In the speed ot the two teams,
Whenever a Washington player lost
the ball his team mate was there to
pick up the play.
Mayers and Grant were easily the
olasB of the Varsity team and they
held their own with the best that the
Invaders had on the floor. They are
as fast and as tricky but they would
be more effective as scorers If the gen-
oral floor play of the whole team
allowed them to get Inside before they
shoot. Their ability on the floor is
brought out by the fact that the leading scorers ot the Washington team
were the three letter men of lost
year's team and they each gathered In
8 points. Grant took 6 points and Mayers 7.
The fact that Varsity outscored the
Seattle school In the last half shows
that Varsity have not yet learned to
adopt their system of play both defensive and offensive to cope successfully with their opponents. They got
started In the second stanza and were
successful.
More teams like Washington, more
games like Saturday night's, a yell
lender and more students to give a
little support to the team will make
people take Interest in this school.

U.B.C. Intercollegiate Debater!
Win First Home Debate
Manitoba Defeated by Brilliant Rabuttal of Murphy
In the intercollegiate debate held last Friday night in th* University
auditorium, the U. B. C. team, upholding the affirmative of the resolution.
won over the visiting team from tbe University ot Manitoba by a Jndf*'*
decision of two to one,
Mr. J. C. Oliver, president of the A. M. S. took the chair.  Ih a t*M
limlnary remarks he welcomed the speakers from the pralrl* ooll
statod the resolution: "Resolved that all restrictions on voting la
based on race or color, should be removed."
The Manitoba team, Francis J. fson and Herbert B, Wast,
negative side of the question, and attacked the resolution on th*
the Impossibility of assimilating Canada's alien races.  Although tfei>
a strong-, attack with this as their argument, th* home team, Paul Murjm>
Richard Yerburgh, succeeded in showing some of their material lrr*V*
and established their own defence upon the cardinal principles ot jusUee>
<v?
m
democracy.
To Mr. Murphy undoubtedly go the
honors of the evening. It was his very
able rebuttal that turned the tide ln
favor ot U, B. C. debaters.
As first speaker for the affirmative
Mr. Murphy made a plea tor the equality of all races and creeds. He appealed to the Christian precepts ot th*
Brotherhood of Mah, and declared
that those forces who have Set up the
League of Nations demand equality in
voting privileges. One of bis important points was that because of the
small Asiatic population no danger
oould threaten from an extension of
the franchise to include them. The
danger, he said, was from indiscriminate extension of the right to vote.
Mr, Ison, the flrst speaker for tho
negative showed that the Asiatic was
in Canada purely for economic reasons. Permanent domicile here Is infrequent, he said, and maintained that
Canada could not allow the franohlse
to a people so obviously different in
culture. These aliens, in his opinion,
ere untrained to exercise a vote with
discrimination.
Mr. Yerburgh, the next speaker for
U. B. O. attempted to show that no
difference In intelligence exists between tbe races. Hie material was
good, but it must be admitted that It
suffered somewhat from his method
of delivery,
Mr. West Manitoba's second speaker, was the wittiest and easiest debater of the evening. His address was the
only one not obviously memorised. He
used telling sarcasm upon the weak
points of his opponents' armor. For
pure delivery, Mr. West was the best
speaker on tho platform.
Mr. Murphy In a very able rebuttal
re-established some of his points and
showed the fallacy in others put up
by the Manitoba team. His chief merit
wus a capacity to stick to the point,
and omit all irrelevancles. The U.B.C.
team Is to be congratulated on a better
handling ot material. This was the
factor that gave them their victory.
While in Vancouver the prairie team
have been entertained by the student
executives. Friday afternoon they
were the guests of honor at a tea tendered by the Woman's Undergrad.
Thoy also were entertained at lunch
Friday, and on Saturday they were
present at the Canadian Club luncheon.
In the away debate against the University of Saskatchewan, the judges
were unanimous in their decision
against U. B. C. No details are available exoept that the contest was elose
and Interesting.

HIGH SERIOUSNESS
Ben Jonson, go it in anid, would rather lose a friend than a jest.
Rare Ben Jonson—an attitude of beautiful independence. All great
minds, it seems, fret under the trammels of hollow-ringing convention, We suffer a bit, too—although, by logio, there is no implication
about great minds.. Under certain conditions, however, we might
give out an occasional editorial smacking of life and gusto, rather
than the scentless artificial florists' flowers through which, symbolic-
Ally, we shepherd the student body,
What really brings home the sad truth of our limitations is the
nearness of the elections. It has been traditional that this paper be
Writ'down as non-partisan j thus we may acquire that inhuman objectivity which is the black death of critics. Whether, steeped in
Viking lore, we will refrain from entering the fight of factions remains fot time to disclose.
\. Or again to swing to the lighter vein, could we but enjoy liberty
Snd freedom to mirror satirically all forms of college life, on some
Sides using the convex glass, on others, the concave—how we would
Silt half truths to our submissive readers. Thoughts would bubble
Up in our foggy brains like dollars in an oil well, but sometimes it in
laid that dollars are not put to moral uses.
However, we are never taken seriously. In one of our issues Inst
year we dealt with Library and Faculty; and yet one professor two
weeks ago had sixty-five books out nt one time. Let us hope that
eaoh of these sixty-five books fulfils it proper function of making the
flre-sido more attractive than the tavern.
Perchance we should take a back-handed flip at Badminton ex-
ponents—in spite of the fact that we gave them a frontpage double-
liner in a recent issue. Already, however, the field has been touched
in this direction by one of our contemporaries which refers to the
«ame as one played on a checkerboard, where puppets dance after a
Untile of feathers, tapping the fluff with a glorified fun. A dear old
lady told us only the other day that she wouldn 't mind the game if
OUly the young gents would keep their rackets hidden under their
coats until thoy arrive on the lists. However, to throw out half a
truth, Badminton itself is oerhaps only o mock-horoic interpretation
of life.
Perchance, though, the richest field for renlly serious constructive
criticism is the social side of University life. Tho lovely way in
Which one little faction balances off against the other may again be
classified as a mock heroic interpretation of life. Most delightfully
amusing are observations on the way of the world. Perhaps though
the peak of the mock heroic tradition is seen in the god-jyrnwl
motherly attitude of some of the prominent young women on the
campus towards the naive freshmen who are beautiful in tlieir deep
simplicity. However, we must recognize the "objective" ideal which
seems to be the destiny of this page, and, like N'yin, where the knocks
may become too hot, we must be of few words,
So that's the humor of it,
UNION OF CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES
We can think of no argument against the endorsation, by this
student body, of the constitution of the Canadian National Federation of University Students; on the contrary, the advantages and
benefits which would accrue to the undergraduates of this University
by membership in this continent-wide union nre so real and obvious
as to suggest themselves at once to the mind of even the most casual;
and for that reason they need not bo here discussed.   A passing sug-
?estion that this University, in its geographically extreme position,
as been for years in need of the closer contact which this union will
afford with sister Canadian universities should be sufficient; and the
observation that such contact may serve (in our opinion, desirably)
to tttrn certain eyes from their too-absorbed regard of American
coast colleges, (with which in the past we havo had our solo official
affiliation) may not come amiss. It is our considered opinion that the
union should be supported at nil times by all Ciinadian universities,
and argument does not enter into the matter.
REGARDING TOWN PLANNING
It is to be hoped that the appeal of Mr. Horace Seymour at. the
noon meeting of the Alma Mater Society yesterday, will receive ample
support from the men of the university. This is the first time in recent yoars that students have been called upon to render service to
the public, and it would not come nmiss that the students reciprocate
by this moans, the favours received in the past from thnt same public.
MATHEMATICS CLUB
The first meeting of the Math. Club
for the term will be held Thursday,
January 27th, at 12,10 noon In Arts*
104. Mr. A. Preston Melllsh will
speak on "Relativity." A full turnout of membera Is requested. All Interested are, welcome.

tournament of the Hatlmlnton Club
will be placed on the notice boaroa
thla week. All those wishing to enter

noon. The entrance fee la fifty cents
or three events for one dollar.
REGARDING RECENT HOCKEY
WRITE-UPS
Jan. 24th, 1927.
To the Eidtor, Ubyssey,
The University of B, C.
Dear Sir:—
In last week's Ubyssey appeared an
article purporting to report the Ice
Hockey match betweeu the University
team and the Terminals. The article
concluded with some remarks that the
team deserved no support till they
had won some games and till the players were in condition.
This policy of the paper lu knocking the University sport is a matter
of general concern about which I wish
to protest. I question the policy of
the paper, I question also its standing and qualifications to nialse the criticism attempted. Whatever the weakness of the hockey team may be, it at
least has to stand up to Its competitors. If the Ubyssey as at present conducted were foroed to meet Its competitors in like form oue wonders
what its fate would be.
With regard to the person writing
the attack, I doubt if he has ever seen
the team play. The policy of the paper
is the most serious matter. The members ot the hockey team are handicapped by lack of opportunities for
praotlce. This is their misfortune for
which they are not responsible. The
team has done its best, and from
those who know, It will be given
credit.
That the team has not won more
games when doing its best is a reason
for more support, not for ungonerouo
and mis-placed attack. If this policy
Is pursued it will not only hamper
athletics but will react seriously on
the paper, I doubt if the Ubyssey can
stand this any better than the Hockey
Team.
Yours truly,
DON FARMS.
Editor's Note—Any readers Interested ln this matter are referred to the
article In question, which appeared in
column 2, page 3 of our last Issue.
Since that account waB published, the
hockey team has won a match, of
which a report Is printed elsewhere
In these columns. A comparison of
these two articles should be sufficient
to explain our position. If further comment is needod it will be made when
we are advised of the necessity thereof.
Why Come To College ?
Why spend the thousands of dollars necessary for a college
education? Why the four or Ave years? Isn't it to give
yourself a better-than-average start in life—to equip yotu
brain better? Without good vision your brain is handicapped.
An eye examination is the only way to make sure your eyes
are functioning properly.

The first meeting of the year was
held last Wednesday In App. Sc. 202,
with the president ln the chair. T. E.
Arnold, Sc. '2Y, gave a very Interesting
talk on "Premier Mill."
fie first explained the situation of
the mill with rospect to the mine, and
showed that In the future practically
all tho oro will have to be raised, or
a new mill will be built. Me then
illustrated how the process of flotation of the valuable minerals was
carried on. after the ore had gone
through crushers, ball mills, classifiers, and concentrating tables. His
talk was decidedly beneficial to those
in attendance,
On Wednesday, January '2(5, John
Farrlngton will speak on the Bluebell

Basketball Dance

After the basketball games ln the
Normal School gymnasium last Saturday evening, an Informal dance was
held. This dance was primarily In
honor of the visiting Manltoban debm
era and the Washington basketball
team, but the latter were obliged to
leave for Seattle immediately after
the game.
About seventy-five couples were
dancing, and, as soon as "cutting In"
was permitted, the "stag" line began
Us onslaught, working havoc to perfectly good conversations.
Five men dressed for a wedding
gathered round the piano and a bass

We wonder why there is little real
"Varsity Spirit" and co-operation at
this institution. The following, stolen
from the diary of an undergraduate,
may explain why:
8.10 a.m.—Aroused by mother saying, "You will insist upon going out
at night." Got up and conceded that
point.
8.20 a.m.—Breakfast. Same old bacon and eggs. Read "Ella Cinders" in
the "Star." Saw report of our Varsity's rugby team, but didn't bother to
read it—not interested in rugby.
8.30 a.m.—Caught my No. 16 special. Had to hang to strap, and as
usual, was not thanked by the co-ed
when I gave her my seat. They take
It. for granted.
9.05 a.m.—As usual arrived at Point
ln time to be late—that's only natural.
Some transportation service!
9.07-9.55 a.m. — English lecture.
Thank goodness 1 can catch up some
sleep here.
10.0110.55 a.m. — Another lecture.
Ilorecl HtIff.
10.55-11.10 a.m.—Met Chum of mine
In common room. Second clg. Decided that men should have carpets, easy
chairs as well as the girls. They use
their davenports to toss scandal back
and fort It. Also derided that Student*' Council was far too tame. What
It   needs   is  bruins.
II. i:, I I.L'u a.m. At Library, (lot
look oft res.-rve shelf. Met Frank 101-
llott goiim to lunch. Put book back
and weiil wiiti him. Told him I would
not turn out to Arts '20 relay.
11.20 a.nt.-l2.55 p.m.—Third clg. Saw
pretty ulrl. Must now find someone
who knows her. Sandwiches and bottle of milk; 1th clg. Hush begins. It
beats rne how some people occupy
their seats and make others wait.
Ai'Kiied with Illll Phillips about Student control, Agreed there was none.
5th and lith clg. First bell. Left caf.
12.55-1.uI p.m.—Common room. Got
Ubyssey. 7th clg. Room resembles
pig's sty.
1.02-1.55 p.m.—I.octure. Fine place
to read "Ubyssey." Gee! that's an
awful rng! There never Is anything
in It. All they holler about Is student
apathy and laziness. Support this
and turn out for that. Why should !?
1 pay $7 Alma Mater fees. Goodness
knows 1 dont see what they spend It
on.
2.00-2.:io p.m.—Cut lecture again.
Fiddled around. Was asked to debate, but refused. Don't like debating.
2.:io;i :',n p.m. Library. Started to
study when Flo came over to talk to
lite. Why do people always Interrupt wlii-n line should study? Ended
up by asking  her lo go lo tea.

There seems to be a habit among
students at this University to refer
to one snother as "kids." It may be
all right for Freshmen and Freshettes
to denote themselves with this term,
but when seniors do the same, th* effect lo as ridiculous as Oene Tunney
wearing a bib. One blushes to hear
a six-foot two student with a blue Jaw
turn to his pipe-smoking companion
and say, "Come on, kids," aa a matter of eouree. With the women It le
even worse, If possible. Pass any
group of giggling flappers or gowned
seniors and the word "kids" will Inevitably offend your sense of fitness
of things, If not your senee of humor.
"Us kids," "This kid," "That kid,"
"You kids," etc., etc., have become Incorporated In their vocabularies with
pathetlo effects.
Here w* are supposed to be men
and women and should soon realise
that we are no longer "Just kids."
Then w* would have a University, not
a glorified high school.
* a    *
Even If "Pep programmes prove
poppycock," there Is no reason why
our students should not prove them-
selvee gentlemen, For example, at
the eong meeting last Friday certain
seekers of oulture were present merely to get amusement. The consequence waa that an Important announcement oonoernlng the Manitoba-
U.B.C. debate was Interrupted by so-
called witty remarks of cert an young
barbarians.
If freedom of epeeoh Is to be maintained at this University (of all
places!) every speaker should receive a courteous hearing, no matter whether he le an American, an
Englishman, Chinaman or Hottentot—
or holds opinions of sn Anarohlst, a

It aeems unnecessary to state that
olass draws are (1) to rake the members of the year better acquainted
with one another; (2) to break up the
prevailing cliques, and (3) to encourage that legendary thing known as
"olass spirit." Unfortunately previous experlenoe Indicates that there
may be one or more persons In eaoh
year who needs reminding.
As matters stand, many members
in a olass do not know one another
even after four yeara of Unlvereity
life... Thla may be due to lack of common pursuits, to their mutual reserve,
or to sheer, cold-blooded snobbishness.
Many students move In a "set" whioh
goes to functions as a group, and
looks upon everybody else as Intruders. Hence the necessity of class
draws, to make everybody a "mixer"
with   his classmates.
Certain young ladles get very disappointed if they do not draw the men
they had counted on. They may ob
ject to their partner's looks, or his
voice, or the fact that he has to take
them to the hall in a street car in
stead of a Stutz eight sedan. Some
of these "ladies" state that they are
ill or that their grandmother is dead,
etc., making it impossible for them to
attend with their escorts.. And then
they turn up later with the men of
their choice!
A class function can only succeed If
everybody "plays the game."

VIEWS0N DRAWS
"Class draws," said Prof. Oargle Mo-
Hootch tn response to a question
asked by our reporter, "Class draws
nre all right as far as tbey go, but
they do not go far enough,
For Instance, under the present system, there are always a few co-eds
left over. These enjoy the advantage
of being able to chose their escorts,
probably tho possessors of Packards,
while their less fortunate sisters often
get. some freak who thinks the Black
Hottom Is a nuw breed of sheep,
Then again, some unfortunate
youths draw strange girls, who live
way out on Cedar Cottage. They are
obliged to spond three or four hours
escorting these partners to and from
the dance." (This does not Include
the hour or so necessary to find the
partner's address.)
Now, I would suggest an elaboration
of the present system to spread those
inequalities more evenly.
My suggestion is this, each class
should have not one draw, but many.
There would be a draw for a partner
to accompany to the dance hall, another draw for a companion to go
home with. The partners for each
daiice on the program would also be
decided by lot. This would help everyone to get acquainted and would divide the pleasures and misfortunes.
Of course, the defects that I have
pointed out In the old system might
possibly arise, but the chances are
against it. No one is likely to draw
the same person twice.
It might be held against my plan
that it takes a lot of time to work;
but after all, what atudent worries
about time, when the exams are still
thirteen weeks away?"

Varsity Ice Hockey
Trouncejeralomat
Combination and Finished Play Before
the Nate Give 6-1 Victory
For the first time ln two years, Varsity has won an Ice hockey match.
On Friday last at the Arena the team
broke the Jinx by means of a 5-1 victory over the Meralomas, who were
outplayed all the way. In the first
period Varsity established for itself
a two-point lead by goals off the pucks
of Jack Parker and Don Farrls. Jn
the next period, Ralph Farrls scored
once off the goal of the opposition,
but in the final session Varsity walked away with the game, playing an airtight defence and an effective attack,
a combination of tactics which allowed Jack Parker to find the net ttvlce,
setting the Una! score at five goals for
Varsity to Meralomas one.
The fact, that the game has turned
ln a win Is strong enough argument
that this student body should support
the team. Let us get behind the fastest
game that is played and turn out
teams that we will be proud of. It Is
not so long before hockey is point; to
hi n coast Intercollegiate sport and
we are not going to let the other colleges heat us at our own triune I'niverslty tit' Southern California has a
team Mid I Ill-re is great agitation to
form a southern conference composed
of I'alifoi'iiia, Stanford anil V. S. C.
Should this materialize in the next
few \ i'iirs- the possibility of a northern coiili'tence is practically assured.
l!ri!l'.h Columbia must be prepared
lor Ihat time and the best time to
start is now. Student support will
show !ii'.> team that we are behind
their game and they will return the
compliment by turning In wins. Next
game will show what you think of
supporting Ihe game.

MASHIE WEILDERS
ORGANIZED
On January 20th a meeting was held
of all those Interested In golf at the
I'.H.C. to discuss the formation of a
club. Those present decided that, a
temporary executive should be elected
until the club had progressed a 111 tie
further, The executive elected consists of: President, Reg. Wilson; secretin y treasurer, Jack Richardson.
A I'otnmliiee was appointed to make

It is hoped that the students will

pete li) the spring tournaments. One

of a handicap event to give more Inexperienced   players  a chance.
It Is rumored that the "Star" will
give a cup for the I'niverslty Championship and also that one of the
prominent city golfers has offered to
coach the team.
New track Coach
Fine Athlete
Coach Robert Granger has been
appointed, by the student's Council,
to undertake the task of preparing
Varsity track teams for their coming
intercollegiate battles. This Is one ot
the wisest steps the University has
taken in athletics for some time.
Granger is the best track coach ln
British Columbia, and even better, be
has turned out some of the leading
lights In Western Canada, Look over
his record as nn athlete and conch. He
was one of the premier mlddlo and
long-distance men In Canada a few
years ago, with the following marks?
lu the mile he has dono under 4
minutes, 30 seconds; and 42 minutes
in the 8 mile run. He defeated Copping, Canadian three and five mile
In the 1U20 Canadian Olympia trials
for tlio marathon title, but Granger
wus Just out ot a sick hed and that
race killed him. Those who are aspiring for honors In the long distances
will be surprised to know that
Granger covered first mile on the way
to the eight mile In 4 minutes 63
seconds.
In swimming he was equally brilliant, being the flrst man in B, C. to
do the American free style. He held
every B. C. championship ln swimming from 50 yards to a mile at one
time. He also was considered one
of tho premier men In the breast
stroke on the coast, having covered 600 yards in record time. He
turned in the fastest time in Canada
prior to the 1020 Olympic trial for the
fifty yards free style event. He coached and taught to swim such men as
Brydone Jack, Celmer Ross and many
of the former stars. He will attempt
a come back this summer in distance
swimming.
In water polo he was one of the
best forwards on the coast, and led
the old V.A.S.C. team to many victories in the Northwest.
In rowing he was Northwest singles
sculls champion ln the junior division
and a partner ln many doubles
triumphs.
In rugby, he played on various
teams ln the city, and was rated as
one of the fastest and deadliest tack-
lers in the game.
In hockey, he was a member of the
Towers team, and a sturdy defense
player.
In lacrosse ho was also a star, having played with the same club.
Where can you find a man to equal
this record In any city? A man who
Is supreme ln practically every
branch should make a good coach.
As a coach he has had great success. He has coached King Qeorge
High School to a championship for
many years ln high school rugby.
In track he has coached the old
Elks track team to a victorious season without a single loss. The V.A.
A.C. had a great season under him.
Percy Williams, the young high
school flash who was credited with
better than ten this year, being one
of his products. Williams beat
George Clarke, of Washington, in the
Kit) this year and Charles Clarkson,
a Washington Frosh ten second man.
Clarke was rated as third fastest on
the coast last year. He was placed fifth
in all America, Harry Warren, of
Varsity, was also one of Granger's
products anil he was rated as even
faster than Williams. If you attempted to outline the stars ho has produced it would take all day. Varsity
men who have trained under him
know his ability and geniality. He is
modern In all his methods and this
should be a groat season for B. 0.

Sportorial  J
University of Washington super varsity basketball team beat British Columbia Saturday night at Normal gym.
37—23. To the uninterested spectator
that may mean just one more hoop
battle gone on the books or just one
more defeat handed to the Blue and
Oold. To the basketball student and
those who are keenly Interested in the
future of intercollegiate athletics at
this university it meant more than a
few figures on paper,
California won the coast conference
title In the hoop pastime last year.
Thoy boast a student body of around
11,000. British Columbia with a student body or 1,500 has material to
make any of tho teams ou the coast
thumb their worn out manuals on how
busket bull should be played for dope
ou how to heat this college
Lust .Saturday night wus a milestone
In the history of athletics In this university, With a fighting team, Varsity
went out and faced Washington's
second string team (who by the way
handed the Varsity a trimming last
week in a practice gume) and held
them down to a respectable score.
That was not the greatest triumph,
however, in their struggle because
they actually outscored the Purple and
Qold tornado 13—11 ln the last half.
The team has a right to be proud of
that performance.
As for the game Itself it is the same
old story. A frightened, timid Blue
and Oold team with no yell leader to
urge on the spectators took the floor
and scarcely touched the ball in the
first five minutes ot play while the
Husky quint worked like a well oiled
machine to pile up point after point,
Tho playing of the Varsity team on
Saturday in all the departments of the
game was commendable, except in the
flniBh of their game and their shooting. They failed to work the ball down
the floor far enough before they essayed to make points and that alone
cost them approximately 10 points.
They were far superior to Washington
in free throws however.
Varsity can cope with the attacks ot
the best teams that toss the ball
around ln the Northwest If they had a
handy place to practice in. The outstanding factors ot a brilliant team
are speed, lntenso concentration on
the play and a five man defense ready
to operate at the instant the team
loses possession of the ball. These
factors are essentially the result of
constant playing.
VARSITY "A" TEAM
CONTINUES TO WIN
Varsity girls won their eighth
straight game In as many tries when
they defeated Westminster Y.W.C.A.
to the tune of 32 to 15. The first half
of the game was poor basketball, neither team getting away and the game
being continually checked for a'held
ball. The score at the end of this
period was 7 all.
In the second half, however, Varsity's play opened out and their score
rapidly Increased through a series of
pteity combination plays, Rene Harris
and "Torchy" llailcy went on a little
scoring rampage, netting II and !)
points respectively. Wanna Strut t
was the only Westminster gir! to show
up well.
Varsity--Harris (11), Bailey (9),
Menton (I). Straight, Mahon (6),
Swenclsky  (2)—Total, 32.
