Western World
Must Eradicate
European Follies
Can Only Obtain Good Films
By  Raising  Standards of
Public Taste
No. 1
"When Europe ic torn with political unrest and lies under the constant threat of another international
conflict, I look to the new world in
the West to make disappear the faults
and follies of the old."
With that hopeful statement, G. T.
Hankin, head ot the group of British educationists at present touring
Canada under tbe auspices of the National Council of Education, closed
his twenty-minute address in the
Auditorium Wednesday morning.
President L. S. Klinck ocupied the
Raise Public Taste
Speaking on thc subject, "The Film
in National Life," Mr. Hankin outlined
the growth of the industry, and referred to the motion picture as one
of the newer means of communication. •
"The aim of the industry is naturally ths production of satisfactory
dividends," . he explained, "30 the
producers must of necessity meet
public demand. It is therefore our
duty to raise the standard of public
taste so that thc industry must provide a higher grade of film.
Sentimental Pictures Wont
"Censorship can only stop the
frankly immoral film. The type 1
object to most strenuously is the second-rat.^ sentimental picture which
cannot be controlled by the present
system of censorship," Mr. Hankin
continued. "Instead we must raise
the standard of tost* by training our
children to appreciate good moving
pictures, and organize public opinion
in an effort to bring about our ends."

Recreational Reading
Arranged By Students
Miss Anne Smith, the Reference
Librarian, announces a new service
on the part of the Library to the
student body; one that will originate
with the students themselves.
It is one th:it has grown out of the
highly popular shelf of "recreational
reading" whicn she has been displaying on her counter for some time
In future this shelf will be arranged
by various Individual students and
student organizations, and a short,
concise critical list will accompany it.
Each week there will be a fresh
selection, and each selection will be
chosen to illustrate one subject or
line of reading.
Clubs Take the Job
Among those already arranged for
are series on International Politics
by the International Relations Club,
on Journalism by the Ubyssey Staff,
and one on military subjects by the
Critical notes of a line or two on
each book, compiled by the student
making the selection, will be printed
in each Tuesdays Ubyssey, and the
shelf will be on display by Tuesday
noon. Each selection will contain
about 20 books.
However, as anyone interested will
be at liberty to take any book from
the selection out on loan at any
time, preparations will be made to
fill any gaps in the shelf throughout
the week it wi'l be in evidence.
Students who read boks, a relatively large proportion of the U.B.C.
undergraduates, may, by clipping the
Ubyssey critiques weekly, assemble
an interesting and valuable general
To prove that the 1935 batch of
freshmen and freshettes are green to
their finger-tips, they will be obliged
to wear bright green nail polish during the initiation period. Both sexes
will sport the Riven polish along with
green gob hats which add to the Irish
It It Only Skin Deep?
The freshettes could probably stand
the green nails and hats—but that is
not all. They must refrain from
make-up of any kind between now
and tho evening of the Frosh Reception, October 11. Any girl discovered
breaking this rule will receive a public face-washing in the historic Lily
Pond in front of the Library.
Tabs on Frosh
The men also have an additional
burden to bear. They must wear
their pants inside their socks. Infraction of the rules will get them a half
hour of shoe shining work in the
During the initiation period several
functions have been planned to break
in the Frosh, Tha annual Cairn Ceremony will be held at noon, Tuesday,
October 1.
No Fire
Freshmen and sophs are disappointed to learn that the bonfire has been
abolished this year. Anything else
in the rough and tumble line is also
ruled cut. But the smoker, the occasion for bowling the frosh over
with clay pipes and coarse tobacco,
wtfr-take place on Oct. 8.
Tea Dance But No Tea
A "Post-depression Starvation
Dance"—a tea dance with no tea, will
be held in the gym on October 9.

the morning assembly on Tuesday.

at a noon meeting in the Auditorium
Exchange Needs
Additional Books
Books, books, more books is the
SOS oent out by the Book Exchange
which is now open daily from 8:45
till 4. The demand for second-hand
books far exceeds the supply so all
students bringing in books are assured of a ready sale.
The Book Exchange is an enterprise run under the general supervision of the Alma Mater Society.
Books in reasonably good condition
are accepted from the students and
resold at fair prices. The Exchange
takes a small commission for its services. At present there is a big demand for all firrt and second year
books and many of the upper years.
Any students having any of these
books are urged to bring them in as
soon as possible if they want them
Chancellor Delivers
Formal Welcome
To The Frosh
A formal welcome was tendered to
new students by Chancellor Dr. R.
E. McKechnie, President L. S. Klinck
and deans of tbe various faculties at
the opening of the fall session Tuesday afternoon in the Auditorium.
The meeting stood in silent tribute
to members of the faculty and friends
of the University who passed on during the summer months. Those honored were: Dean R, W. Brock, Mrs.
Brock, Reverend Hugh Vance of the
Anglican Theological College, and
Mr. Justice F. G. T. Lucas, newly
appointed member of the Board of
Governors.   •
History Review
Tiie Chancellor reviewed the history of the growth of education. He
mentioned that wherever a new civilization grew, education followed
closely after. After educational methods had reached their peak in Athens, they began to decline during
the Dark Agos. With the coming of
the Reformation a new evolution began, culminating in our learning for
the  masses today
"Today wo jive education to all
who desire it," the Chancellor continued. "The picture today is the
sons of the rich losing out while
their places are being filled by the
sons of the farmer and the laboring
The Deans of the faculties spoke
shortly, welcoming new students.
Dean Clement referred to the University student! of today as the
"new pioneers."
Dean Bollert paid a touching tribute to the memory of Mrs. R. W.
Brock. "Her ability to do countless
deeds of kindness endeared her to
all who knew her," she said. Miss
Bollert passed or Mrs. Brock's last
words, "I've iiad a happy life," in
her  tribute.
President Klinck
Greets Freshmen
Accomodation May Be Limited
This Year
The annual address of welcome by
President L. S. Klinck to the new
students entering the University was
given In the Auditorium on Tuesday
morning. The President was introduced to the gathering by Dr. J. G.
Davidson, chairman of the faculty
committee in charge of the organization programme for the freshmen.
Accommodation Limited
Speaking of the fact that this year's
registration is slightly higher, Dr.
Klinck advised the newcomers that
they would probably meet the matter
of limitation in several courses. "Our
accomodation," he said, "U only 1550
-not 1800."
"You are entering a period ot adjustment," he continued. "What you
will see will be confusing, what you
hear will probably be even more so.
Here standards vary, and previously
definite issues will be fogged in your
"Our atmosphere here is secular
but not irreligious. We shall try to
dovetail scientific facts with social
and religious beliefs."
"On the Spot"
The President referred to criticism
of University education by many
who believe it is a useless luxury.
"Why, many taxpayers demand,
should the state continue to spend
money on people who will probably
be unable to support themselves after
graduation? To use a common expression, you are "on the spot." And,
to the man who is incapable of taking
the long view—or who is unwilling to
do so—it is not an easy task to make
a -convincing reply."
Pioneers Needed
"Mankind has not yet attained unto
the limit of his possibilities. The
present situation, therefore, presents
an opportunity for trained men and
women, skilled in mind and 'body, to
do the pioneering so necessary to
future progress—whether that progress be purely material or whether
it be in the realm of the intellect or
of the spirit."
"This being so, I believe, as I know
you do, that Ihc opportunity to gain
a university education is still a golden, priceless opportunity."

It is not uncommon to hear the passing of
initiation openly mourned these days. Even in
the official dictums of last year's Ubyssey, one
seemed to detect the private sorrow of the apologist.
We cannot appreciate this attitude. The violent form of initiation, hazing as it is called,
which was practiced here till a year of two
ago, is about the ugliest tradition the American
colleges have passed off on us. Perhaps its
genealogy traces back to ancient fraternal origins. Whatever it starts out as, it degenerates
rapidly in the hands of students to an organized hooliganism. Apart from this, it creates a
bad impression with the powers that be. It is
unspeakably vulgar, and that alone should condemn it.
The Senate announces it will not tolerate
initiation of any form this year, and Council
is fully prepared to back its stand. The business of green hats and placards is "inauguration." But freshmen-sophomore fights, fires and
ducking parties are "initiation", and anyone
participating in this will run foul of the Discipline Committee. Make not mistake: initiation is out.
R. I. P.
The University has been saddened by the
loss of some of its most prominent and best
loved figures in recent months. The tragic accident that cost the lives of Dean and Mrs.
R. W. Brock was followed by the death of
Principal Hugh Vance of Anglican College, and
this week by the passing of Mr. Justice F. G. T.
Lucas, newly appointed to the Board of Governors. The toll continues with Mrs. G. G. Moe,
and Robert Gaul, the latter prominent in student athletics.
They were all friends and servants of the
University, and the empty space left in college
life and in the hearts of their comrades by their
passing will be hard to refill.

both were rickety, but confidentially the Big
Bad Wolf, pure exhaustion, got them.
I have counted words, and find between
the Ubyssey and the Sun I have done 100,000
words outside 50,000 words of essays. I'm
thinking of publishing the assemblage under
the title of "Not Winning the West, or That
Ain't Gold in Them Thar Hills, it's Sawdust",
and making Hervey Allen look like a pamphleteer.
When I finish my millionth word on the
Ubyssey, I extend a blanket invitation to all
you nice people on the campus to a huge party

I understand you are in the midst of.
If you're curious about the location of this

arm's reach and if you spit over your right
shoulder while you're reaching, and you're a
good far spitter, it'll reach Montana. Cranbrook is the name, in case anyone feels inclined to be controversial or otherwise, and
it's in your own province.
And the name of this feature? Shoes and

limit one presently. Besides, my very good
friend, Arthur Walrus, has left and without his
able chairmanship I didn't think I could handle
it. Then too, I'm a graduate now, and he wasn't
even a freshman.
As a graduate the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune are rather oppressive, but the
sea of troubles was right up Arthur's alley, and
off he went. So I have forgone the sea and all
its works, and sought the mountains. Among
the mountains I found was Mount Parnassus.
Says the Encyclopedia Americana: "Parnassus . . . the site of Castalia, a mountain of inspiration and the temples of the Delphic Apollo, Parnassus has become a symbol of poetry
and belles-lettres." Vaguely I recall that Parnassus was also forbidden to mere man, and as
I haven't any real right here, it seems rather
The name was suggested indirectly by a
member of the English Department, Professor
F. G. C. Wood. In his invaluable English 13
course he requires two essays a year. Essays
have never been my longest suit, like most
journalists, as far as literature goes I'm practically illiterate.
However, I strove to straddle and keep one
foot on solid ground of what I knew, and with
the other kick madly about in a puddle of
words. Tho second essay came back with the
comment, "You prance on Parnassus with your
hat» on the side of your head."
I threw my hat away, but I've still got some
prance left in me. Of necessity, this column will
be much more general than the other one, and
at the same time more personal. You see I am

Frosh Shine Shoes
One Cent a Shine
Shouts of "Shine! Only a cent!" and
loud laughter from the surounding
ring of upperclassmen heralded the
inception ot Varsity's shoe shine
stand yesterday morning. Large numbers of Frosh found themselves forgetting that then hands must not
repose in their pockets, and paid
the penalty in shining shoes.
The first day was a financial success. Enough was taken in to repay
those who had contributed for the
original supply ot polish and to buy
several more cans More than seventy
people availed themselves of the opportunity aforded, and smilingly stepped to the platform.
Brown Shoes Blacked
Some of the customers were easily
satisfied, but a large number minutely itspected every square inch of
the finished shoo. One such gentleman was quite surprised to discover
that his brown shoes had emerged
a glossy black.

occured when Darrel Gomery stepped
up to receive the services of the errant freshmen. She set a precedent,
and was followed by another co-ed.

With the pavsmg of Dean Reginald
W. Brock, a Lrilliant career as a
scientist, soldier and administrator
was brought >o m untimely end. An
airplane crash nt Alta Lake, which
claimed three lives on July 30 and
another early in August, marked the
close of an eventful life of service,—
not only service to the University,
but to the nation as a whole.
During the s!yty-one years of his
life, the honors degrees and offices
accumulated by Dr. Brock read like
the decorations of a monarch. At the
time ot his death he was dean of the
faculty of applied science at the University of B. C, chairman of the
Vancouver Harbor Board, president
of the Royal Sricety of Canada, commander of 1st Pattalion of the Sea-
forth Highlanders, holder of LL. D.
degrees from Queen's University and
the University of Hongkong, honorary member of a score of scientific
bodies and th? world authority on the
geology of Southern British Columbia.
Born in Perth, Ontario, Dean Brock
was educated at the University of
Toronto, Queen's University and
Heidelburg University, receiving medals and scholarships in almost mon-
otonous succession. After completing
his education, iu was appointed director of the Geological Survey in
In 1923, at the request of the British War Office, he undertook the geological mapring of the Island of
Hongkong. In recognition of the completion of the work two years ago,
he was made an honorary member of
the  Geological   Society  of China.
At the time of his death, Dr. Brock
was compiling final information on
the resuHs of his recent geological
survey in Chini, a work which would
have proved exceedingly valuable to
the gove-nment of that country had
he been allowed to complete his
Little need be said concerning his
inestimable value to the University
of British Columbia. The part he
played in the development of the
faculty of Applied Science, now one
of the foremost schools of its type on
the entire continent, will always be
remembered in educational circles of
the province. To replace him in the
various positions he held before his
death will be exceedingly difficult,
especially at the University.

In January Dr. Vance suffered a

great shock to the University and the

serving as Curate at St. Thomas'
Church, St. Catherines, Ontario, and
as Rector of ihe Church of the Ascension in Toronto he was transferred
to Vancouver in 1910.
Upon his arrival here, Dr. Vance,
was appointed principal of Latimer

By the Late Editors
Quite frankly, this column is written with the express purpose of filling space!
Poor management? Maybe, but we
who have to turn out the old Ubyssey on the firjt day, with little or
no help from the rest of the slacking student body who habitate the
Varsity campus, really are up against
it when we tjet back from a five
months rest, only to find that things
are going against us and there's nothing to put in the paper.
Even the clubs fall down on us
early in the year. Notices of meetings to come, which were going to
be cut down to six lines to save space
were found to be much to short!
Six line notices are all right after
full page advertisements would be
much more appreciated.
Even President L. S. Klinck, whose
efforts to fill this column on the
opening day wen- greatly appreciated, cannot be exrected to supply sufficient interestinc* copy to fill column
after column.
We had a copy of his speech on
hand, ready to use if the emergency
really arose, but here we are, filling
apace out of our own heads.
You say we haven't said anything?
Of course we haven't. After all, with
five minutes to deadline and a whole
coumn to fill with sweet nothings and
general nonsense what can you expect.
From now on, we feel it our duty
to become much more serious. All the
time we've been tapping out this filler, we've been racking our minds
for ideas. The printer decided finally that it was getting pretty late.
And so he passed our way a whole
lot of cuts. Quite frankly they've all
been used before. Personally, we remember seeing them in the Ubyssey
several times lost year. Just the
same, time is really getting short.
We'd like to point out the obvious
moral that this column is really intended to teach. We've got the idea
very nicely illustrated at the top.
"The Early Bird"—and of course,
we've learned the lesson. But isn't
there another section to the old maxim. We distinctly remember something about getting worms-^and if the
truth be told, we've always been
rather squeamish abount the squirmy
little things.
And just to close—because really
your agonies are nearly over—we'd
like to mention that if the Editor-in-
Chief dcesn't like the way we've filled this space, its just too bad!
And we hope the preview he attended at the Kerrisdale Theatre
proved as great an attraction as he
seemed to think it would.
Quite frankly, instead of writing
this column we were tempted to join
But it's just the exigencies of journalism.
Now we've got the space filled. So
long! And it won't ever happen again.
That's a promise!

standpoint to the purely practical.
More new mombers than usual will
be admitted this year—probably about
thirty-five. You become a member
through a competitive try-out of acting promise. Past experience is unnecessary. Make your applications
as follows:
Write your rame and university
year on a slip of paper and drop it
ln the box provided by the Players'
Club ut the north end of the Arts
Building. This must bs done by 5
p.m. m Tuesday, Oct. 1. On the
following day, Wednesday, Oct. 2, go
to Arts 100 at noon, where the system of try-outs will be explained to
all applicants and arts distributed for
them *o rehearse with partners who
will also be assigned at this meeting.

, An effort is being made by the
members of the Publications Board
to increase the size of the Ubyssey

The advertisers who use the Ubyssey have something to sell to students — their prices are reasonable

high. There is no reason, therefore,
why U.B.C. students should not make
an especial effort to patronize Ubyssey advertisers. It will benefit them

Athlete Passes On
Bobby Gaul Was Four-Time Big Block Winner
Howie McPhee
Joins Varsity
Track Artists
Track Men Expect Banner
With the death of Bobby Gaul, the University and Vancouver have lost one of their brightest athletic stars. At U.B.C.
Bobby was best known as a rugby player of great ability although his athletic career began on the cinder track.
With Percy Williams, Bobby   wasf	
one of the original members of the
"Hexamis," a club of six King Edward High students, where he commenced his sport? activities, and was
a member of the High School of Commerce relay team which included
Williams on its roster and won many
championships In Northwestern contests. For three years before the
Amsterdam Olympic Games in which
Williams won time for himself and
Vancouver, sandy-haired Bobby was
a constant training partner of the
Through his gnat confidence in the
abilities of his friend, Gaul proved
to be the Inspiration which helped
Williams win the 200-meter race in
Holland against the world's best.
Lying on the tubbing table before
the race wherein he was pitted
against Korni& fastest of the Europeans, and Borah, the American express, Williams was read a letter
from his friend which contained the
confident words, "You'll breeze by
With elimination facing him as he
trailed badly, Williams remembered
these words. He surged forward in
an amazing spurt that brought the
crowds in the f.ieat stadium breathless to their feft to finish the winner
by a scant three feet.
At Varsity, Bobby, who, along with
Dr. Warren, still holds the university
record for the 220 on a curved track,
devoted his speed to rugby, in which
game he won his greatest honors.
While travelling with the famous
Varsity McKechnie Cup team which
toured Canada in 1930, his speed,
surefootedness, fearless tackling and
team-play at the three-quarters position won the ac'miration of eastern
sportsmen and critics. Mike Roddan,
well known sportj authority, spoke
of him as "a boy who would make
the greatest broken-field runner in
Canadian football if he ever cared
to play the game."
On the campus, Bobby, four times
winner of the Big Block was president of the Big Block Club, and a
member of the Men's Athletic Executive. In 1934 be was elected captain
of the English rugby team, but resigned on account of his illness despite the wishes of the team that he
carry on even if unable to play, since
he considered himself a handicap to
the team. He was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
In his latter scholastic work he was
greatly hindered by his long sickness,
but kept bravely at work whenever
able to attend. In 1934 Bobby won
the G. M. Dawson Scholarship for
fourth year geological engineering,
and in 1935 he was granted aegrotat
degrees in both Arts and Science. Inspired by the example of his great-
uncle, William Thomas Gaul, the
great, lovable rers°nality of South
Africa, bishop of Mashonaland, who
officiated at tbe funeral of Cecil
Rhodes and helped draft the Rhodes
trust fund deed, he thought to enter
the ministry, but later turned to science, where he specialized in geology.
Of this blonde, gentle, lovable, brave, modest athlete, popular
with both students and faculty. Bob
Granger, who coached him and Williams in their early careers, said,
"Gaul was one of the finest sportsmen a coach could hope to meet!"
Dr. Sedgewick wrote, "Bobby was
one of those rare and lovely souls in ,
whom one \vould wish to sec no
change". This wish has been realized, for he lives on in memory, unchanging  as  the days  go  by.
It looks like a big season for the
boys who cavort over the cinders, fly
into sawdust pits and toss various
weights about. For, none other than
Howie McPhee, ace sprinter and Olympic Games hope, has enrolled. Even
the ace college sprinters of our American neighbors have nothing on this
boy. Ho should clean up easily in
all meets.
Another important acquisition is
that of Alex Lucas. Known as "The
Iron Man" and "The One-Man
Track Team," he comes with a high
reputation as a sprinter, jumper and
weight man.
Mansfield, Beach, Patmore and Allen have returned and will look after
the middle distances. Jim McCammon has returned for more weight
tossing and Jack Harvey will again
do some hurdling .

American Football
Schedule Has Five
Intercollege Games
Many Old Stars Missing But
Youngsters Good
Be it for better or worse, as the
old ceremony goes, American football has definitely replaced the Canadian form. The Thunderbird sched-.
ule is completely Americanized.
Just one more week remains until
the first of five clashes with American colleges en October 2. This
game is In Bellingham ond against
the strong Washington State Normal
team. The Thunderbirds will then
return to give two home performances—one against Ellensburg on Oct.
10, and the other against Pacific
Lutheran College on Oct. 26. The
last game is away from home with
the College of Puget Sound on Nov.
There will   also  be a game  here
The date of this contest has not yet
been announced.
Maybe it's because football heroes
are popular, but anyway the call to
the football faithful has been answered. In ten dr.ys the small group
of veterans has been augmented to
a squad of thirty hustling students.
Coached by "Dor" Burke, Ivor Moe,
and Bill Morrow, the squad is getting on to tha American game and
despite loss of many regulars should
make a good showing.
The coaches heve not yet issued a
line-up for the first game but some
of last year's regulars who are sure
to see action are Russ Keiller, Frank
Hay, "Horsey" Preston, Barney Boe,
Gordie Snelling, Ronnie Bell, Frank
Billings, Stu Jagger, Bob Twiss,
Rudy Paradis and Jack Wark. Others
turning out regularly are Morrison,
Davie, McHugh, Morrow, Hodgson,
Gray, Spohn, Runkle, O'Brien, Burke,
Russell, Price, Gladstone, Parkinson,
Deptford, Shultz. Burnet, Lambert,
Burges, Gross, Hopkins, Hill, McRae,

Sept.   30,   at   12: W.
With the beginning of the fall term
comes the eternal question: "How are
we going to do in the field of sport
this season?" This question, which
always seems s« hard to answer,
holds no fear for the athletically-
minded co-eds this season, nor for
Dr. Montgomery, the enthusiastic
coach of the Senior Basketball team.
A confident smile replaces the usual worried Iojk as the Doctor finds
he has lost only two of last year's
regulars, Blanche McMurchy and Vi
Mellish, both of whom graduated last
year. The nucleus of this year's
squad will be fotmed around four of
last year's veterans, Jean Thomas,
Beth Evans, Marj, Mellish and Audrey Munton.
Isabella   Campbell,    of   last   year's
Province Senior Team, is now attending   this   illustrious    institution   and
will probably make the grade as first
string forward.   Among the other coeds out to nuke the team are:  Olive
Cummin:,, last season with the Ted- j
dies, Marg H-ispol and Laura Nixon,
both of whom i laved for Varsity last I
year,  and  a  graceful  graduate  from j
Magee,  Virginia  Poole.
Plenty of interest has already been I
shown by the girls in the roundball j
sport, when at the first official prac- i
tice on Wednesday, there were over !
twenty candidates for the two teams. |
Wright have also left the ranks. It
was expected that Jack Ross, Jim
Osborne and Ducky Swan would
form tho nucleus for this year's quintette but they too have disappeared.
Swan, who looked the most hopeful of all has io quit the hoop sport
because of a "leaky pump." Now
comes the surprise—we actually have
one lone member from last year's
B. C. finalist squad. He is the "perfect" player, Joe Pringle, who figures it is his duty to play for his
Alma Mammy in spite of the fact
that the strong Province five is bidding for his services. Joe, the dependable, will probably captain the
hoopers for the year.
Mind you there are a few promising rookies who might be able to replace the lost stars but lots of drilling is needed for all of them. The
most promising of the newcomers
seem to be from last year's Senior
B team. Frank Turner, Bill Patmore,
Wilf Stockvis, Bruce Miller and John
Lafon should improve with constant
practice and maybe really show the
way to a worthy bunch of rookies.
Last year's freshmen as well as a
few high school stars also look good,
such as Lloyd Detwiller, Don Mc-
Gugan, Jack Davis, Alex Lucas and
a hefty lad by the name of Mason
from Trail. All that seems to be
needed is lots of practice and then
you never can tell what kind of a
bunch of hoopers might be produced.
According to Senior Manager
George Crosson who takes the place
of John Prior from last year (who
also is turning out for the team and
looks plenty good) there seems to
be' no coach picked yet. Jack Bar-
berie who sen: the Thunderbirds on
their way to the finals of the B. C.
championship will coach Adanacs this
season sc his position seems quite vacant. Ivor Moe, one of the football
coaches is mentioned as a possibility
to take over the job; as least for the
time he is herd in connection with
the grid game.
Varsity English Ruggers
Show Bright Prospects
Twelve of Last Year's Miller Cuppers Return
To Campus — Roxy Missed
With the return of at least twelve of last year's first team
stars, the Varsity English Rugby Club presents the strongest
front of many years, and looks well on the way as the most
successful major sport of this academic year. The only really
serious gap in the ranks of last year's city champions seems that
left by the departure of Captain Tommy Roxburgh, who has
completed his teachers' training course and will be seen in the
uniform of the Rowing Club this year.

Thirty-five enthusiasts attended
Wednesday's organization meeting
and practices will begin next week.
Highlight of the athletic program
for the University year 1935-36 is the
attempt of the Athletic executive to
bring intra-mural sport into Its own
on the campus. The first step along
this line, namely a proposal to extend the noon-hour to an hour and
a half, is now in the hands of the
Faculty Committee, and must still be
passed by the Beard of Governors before the actual extension can come
into effect.
The Athletic Fresldent, John Harrison, is confident that the lnter-class
games which this extra thirty minutes will allow will in the long run
improve the athletic standaid of the
whole University, by giving reserve
team players more practice, and by
providing a chance for those who
wish to see just what their athletic
capabilities amount to. No first team
player would bs allowed to participate  in these  intra-mural games.
It is also planned to make use of
this extra time for classes in physical education. These classes would
be entirely voluntary.
The Varsity English Rugby team,
of which great doings are expected
this season, were reecntly given a
pleasant surprise with a guarantee of
practically full expenses for a California tour during the Christmas
holidays. In un effort to arouse interest in the English style of game in
the south, California supporters have
planned a series of four or five tilts
for the Thunderbirds. It is expected
that they will leave here about De-

the coach this year for the first time.
It will be given not for the player's
natural abilitv but for the greatest
amount of improved ability from the
first of the season to the end, in conjunction with practice, attendance,
game, punctuality, attitude, team
spirit, aggression and fundamental
knowledge of the game.
loss is to be had in the promising
crop of frosh. A youngster from
Byng high school named Smith, who
held the five-eights position on the
High School All-Stars is showing up
well in practice. Victoria provides
Joe Anderson from Victoria College.
A member of the previous season's
Rowing Club squad, and several of
last year's second division players-
Porter, Lea, Ellis, Trussel, Brown,
and many others—have been trying
out regularly.
Pearson Captain
Leading this year's team in action
will be Captain-elect Harry Pearson,
considered among the best wing forwards in city leagues. Back for his
seventh year, Harry with his weight,
skill and experience, will prove a
constant threat to the opposing play-
Dave Carey will be back, this year
as vice-captain. He is being considered to return to his old All Black
position of scrum half, with John
Bird, another ot last season's freshmen stars, as five-eights. Al Mercer
is to be moved to fullback according
to latest reports, and the rest of the
three-quarter line will be picked
from Leggatt, Haper, Roberts, Robson,
Stokvis and Griffin, of former years,
and the most promising of the newcomers.
Scrum Conditions
With Pearson in returning to the
scrum will be Jimmy Pyle, John
Harrison, Men's Athletic President,
Jim Mitchell ar.d Ed Maguire. Bobby
Gross will be out owing to injuries
but is still with the team as Senior
Manager. With several recruits from
second division teams and the Frosh,
the Rugby prospects are probably the
brightest of all as the University Athletics are swinging back to action.
New Deal!
A new system is being inaugurated
by the league officials for the coming
season. The seven teams comprising
the first division are to play one
round m the first half of the season,
with the top team winning the Miller
Trophy and the City Championship.
Then in the second half the top four
teams will be all remaining in the
first division, fighting it out for the
Tisdall Cup, while the remaining
squads will form another division
with the top four teams of the second division for the right to four
places in next year's first division.
All very complicated, but not a bad
The league will be declared officially open on Oct. 5, when Varsity
will journey to Nanaimo, to tackle
the strong coal city aggregation.
There will be a Women's' Athletic
Meeting on Monday noon, Arts 100.
