Frat Menace
Upsets Calm
Of Queen's U.
The fraternity question seems to
be creating a great deal of agitation
on the campus of Queen's University
at Kingston. So far these organizations have not yet secured any official recognition.
In the recent student elections definite stands for and against fraternities were taken by the candidates,
and on the whole the anti-fraternity
party was successful.
Nevertheless there are now two unofficial fraternities on the campus, one
for medical students only. There is
also another club that performs the
functions of a fraternity.
The chief opposition to recognition
seems to arise from a fear that fraternities will injure the student spirit
that is so noticeably a feature of
Queens life.
A recent survey conducted by the
Queen's Journal is on the whole
rather sympathetic to fraternities, al-
thought it manages to be non-committal.
The chief probbm lies in whether
to give the fraternities official recognition, or allow them to carry on
an underground existence. In spite
of the wishes of the vast majority of
the students, there seems but little
doubt but that frats will soon be
flourishing openly on the campus.
Student Government Imperilled
As a result of the fights, organized or otherwise,
between the faculties of Arts and Science during the last
few weeks, the Board of Governors have seen fit to order
an investigation into the whole matter.
The attitude of the Board of Governors can be understood quite easily when we consider the findings of
the courts in recent cases against universities and schools
in Canada. As a result of these, it is quite readily seen
that this University is likely td be held responsible for
all damage occuring to life or property during the aforementioned fights.
Naturally the Governors must protect the interests
of the University and they have intimated as a result that
unless this fighting is stopped by the students themselves,
drastic action will be taken.
The nature of this action will undoubtedly be the
expulsion of all participants and the probability that the
powers of Student Government will be greatly curtailed.
We ask, therefore, that in the future all student in
the University desist from taking part in fights of any
kind on the campus. If one has not respect for the fate of
our Student Government,4 he will at least consider his own
danger of being expelled.
Gold Mining In B.C.
Topic Of Galloway
"Oold Mining in British Columbia"
will be the subject of an address to
be given by Mr. J. D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist, in Arts 100, Saturday evening at 8:15 p.m.
There are few subjects In which
there is more widespread and acute
general interest throughout the city
end province than in the mining of
gold. The recent increase in the value of the metal, and improved methods of mining and milling, have rendered profitable many low-bearing
gold mining undertakings that hitherto were non-paying investments.
Mr. Galloway's extensive and exact
knowledge of the mineral resources
of British Columbia, and his prolonged official service, make him an
authority on this subject.
The amount of the prizes which
the W.C.T.U. is offering U.B.C. students for essays on subjects regarding temperence is $100.00 and not
$1000.00 as stated incorrectly in last
'Out of a JobV
Sell Insurance
Says Speaker
"The insurance business provides
unlimited scope for advancement,"
stated Mr. H. O. Arkley, at the Vocational Guidance Lecture, Wednesday noon. Emphasizing the breadth
of the insurance field, Mr. Arkley
remarked that his company alone
handled seventy varieties of casualty
insurance with new types continually appearing.
No man can hope to succeed in
business unless he believes his work
is the most interesting, important and
necessary. This fact is especially applicable to the insurance business. A
man must begin at the bottom. In
some cases it is well to spend a year
or two clerking in the offices to learn
the fundamentals of the business.
Again it is better to commence right
in the selling field. God salesmen
are essential and though some men
are born as such the majority have
to be developed.
"In this development," Mr. Arkley
continued, "there are five important
qualification. First, Knowledge — A
salesman must have a thorough grasp
of his subject before he can gain and
hold his customer's confidence. To
keep abreast of new developments,
continual study must be maintained.
Second, Imagination — The agent is
selling an article which has no tangible form, and for which the immediate need is not apparent Imagination is necessary to make the urgency of that possible need very vivid.
Third, Continued Interest—The disappointments due to unsuccessful attempts must not dampe.i the salesman's ardour. He must maintain his
enthusiasm, Fourth, Honesty — This
quality is essential in all work but
especially in this occupation.
The company relie.i on thc salesman to provide true facts concerning
the risks of the prospective buyer.
In the collection of cash premiums,
the salesman must at all costs resist
the temptation to borrow a little. Thi.
habit once begun leads to failure.
Fifth, Prospect consciousness — This
quality should be developed quickly.

National Cultures
Shown At .Concert
Over sixty were present when
Dean Bollert was hostess to the Cosmopolitan Club concert and tea Wednesday afternoon in the Women's
lower common room.
The program included the following numbers which represented the
culture of different national groups
present on the campus. The following numbers were included: a violin
sold by Peter Mavsuda accompanied
by John Nakashuna "Now Sleeps the
Crimson Petal," sung by Mrs. Doughty and accompanied by Mrs. G. McMaster. The reading of two French
symboliste poems by Joan Dangel-
zerz followed. A Chinese piece
played on a Chinese harp by Jennie
Chan was most enthusaistically received by the audience. Later in the
program Miss Chan favoured the
Club with a second selection. Miss
Elphick gave a Scotch solo dance and
was accompanied by Miss Collins on
the bagpipe-. Miss Margaret Kaye
gave a selection on the piano and
Miss Florence Foellmer sang a song
in German. The concert was closed,
with two songs by Miss Alice Rowe
—the first was in French and the
second one a translation from the
German, "Sing mo to Sleep."
The guests of honour were Mrs.
Seto More and Mrs. A. Gibb and
President K. Klinck. The gathering
was made more distinctive by the
presence of four girls in native costume and the serving of two kinds
of Chinese confectionery.
Hungry Pep Fathers
Invade Hi-Jinx
The Amazon ancestors of our sweet
co-eds made themselves felt laat
night when infuriated Hi Jinkers lost
their ao-called dignity and mobbed
unfortunate Pep Clubbers who attempted an invasion of the time-consecrated women's function.
Nurses were preparing for their
•kit when a line of gaily painted creatures appeared in the background,
evidently part of the program. flhey
raised a banner on which was emblazoned "Hi Jinx is Unfair to Male
Labour." At the sound of a booming
chorus of "Who's Afraid of the Big
Bad Wolf" a shrill shocked "Oooooh!"
arose from the grandstand, and within the space of one split second the
floor was swarming with avenging
females. The unhappy males were
driven slowly but surely through the
door, terrified by shouts of "cut their
hair!" and according to the ancient
tradition two massive pairs of ads
sors made their appearance. Co-eds
vied with each other for scalps and
finally the dor slammed to the accompaniment of crlea of victory.
Two minor invasions later in the
evening were successfully repulsed
and it ia doubtful whether another
attempt will be made next year aa
the girls say they are perfecting an
organized system of complete haircuts which will put laat night's harboring in the shade.
Costumes at the Fancy Dress function were of many and varied design. Pirates, gypaies, nurses, hikers,
and South Sea Island maidens—even
Felix the Cat and the Big Bed Wolf-
mingled with the celtbritlee of ecreen
and novel in a colorful array. Winners for costumes included: Margaret
Winter, for the prettiest costume;
Audrey Horton, for the least expensive, yet novel attire. The prize for
the funniest costume was won by a
horse, led by the cowboy, Helen
Lowe. Margaret Cunningham and
Ethelyne Chandler were decided to
have acted out their costumes best
throughout the evening. They were
Charwomen. Prizes were presented
by Dr. Maclnnes.

Tickets; Council Turns 'Em Down
We Didn't Want To Go To Your Old BaU
Anyhow, Says Irate Council
At a Science pep meeting yesterday noon, it wu decided
to hold a S.M.U.S. meeting on the 15th of thii month to decide
whether the Society approves of their executive in giving only
single tickets to council.
Considerable annoyance was expressed by members of
Council at their meeting Monday night at the attitude adopted
by the Science Men's Undergraduate Executive with regard to
the allocation o! complimentary tickets to the Science Ball.
In the final complimentary list passed by the executive it
was found that council members were given single tickets while
subordinate officers on the campus were given double tickets.

"Dr. Sylvia L.^Thrupp has just published a short history of the worshipful Company of Bakers," announces
Professor Sage of the History Department. This piece of research was
financed by the Bakers Company of
London — one of the old chartered
Companies of London, dating back
to the fifteenth century.
Dr. Thrupp, a Master of Arts from
U.B.C., was chosen for this work on
account of her research into the history of The Grocer's and Mercer's
Company. The Baker's Co., to judge
from the preface to the book, written
by the Master of the Company, were
very pleased with the thorough character of her work. She has recently
arrived ln the U.S.A. to commence research as a fellow under the Social
Science Research Council.

Radio Debaters
Find Capital
P-jttsbmeDt OX
Ample Justification for the use of
capital punishment as a deterrent for
murder still exists, according to the
results of Tuesday's radio debate with
the University of Manitoba. This
was the second of a aeries of radio
debates between the four weetern
universities, sponsored by the Canadian Radio Commission.
U.B.C. Argument
U. B. C.'s representatives, Jack
Bourne and Oeorge Luxton, upholding the affirmative of the question,
"Resolved that captlal punishment
should be abolished," maintained that
the use of thia form of punishment
was xi disgrace to modern civilisation,
and law enforcement, and that it did
not in any way act as a deterrent to
the act of homicide. Burglary, holdup and similar- crimes are usually
carefully planned and deliberately
carried out, but murder, nine casta
out of ten, is unpremeditated and is
due to the uncontrollable explosion
of emotions. Therefore, there is no
reason to believe that a murderer at
large is likely to repeat the action.
Modern criminologists and psycho-
pathologists confirm these facts. In
the case of insanity the killer should
be treated as one mentally deranged.
Life imprisonment with the possibility of pardon was the alternative
suggested by the U.B.C. atudenta.
Manitoba's Case
David Bews and Lawrence Rabin-
owitz of the University of Manitoba
maintained that death is the most
severe punishment known to modern
civilization and as such ia suitable for
the punishment ot murder, the supreme offense. The miscarriage of
justice is very rare, according to the
speakers, and death represents the
only just and suitable penalty for
such a crime. The prevalence of
murder in the United States was accounted for by the laxity of law enforcement and the rare application
of the death penalty. Men with life
sentences are the chief offenders in
bad precedent was being established,
so it was decided unanimously to return the tickets to the Science executive unaccepted. It was stated that if
the tickets were offered out of a
sense of obligation rather than as a
compliment, it would be undignified
for Council to accept As a reault ol
this decision those council membera
who were going to attend the bell declared their intention of paying their
own way.
After considerable discussion it waa
decided to rent the Track Club IN
to help defray expenses of a treok
meet on March 24 with the CoUege ef
Puget Sound. The original amount
asked was $75.
Permission was given the Musicel
Society to negotiate with the New
Westminster Kiwanla Club regarding
a presentation of 'The Mikado' In that
city. No financial obligation weuld
be involved.

It has always been the custom on the campus for 'A' officers, which includes members
of Council, to be offered two complimentary
tickets to all university functions. Considering the time and effort employed by these officers for the Alma Mater Society, it is only fair
that they should be given some such slight re-
compense for their services.
In offering members of Council single
tickets for the Science Ball the Science Men's
Undergraduate executive were acting quite
within their rights, but were breaking a campus tradition. However, double tickets were
offered to three of the subordinate officers on
the campus.
This action was done after mature consideration and a vote by the Science Executive.
In all its effects it is a gratuitous insult to the
highest student officers on the campus. It was
definitely stated by the Science men that they
considered Council only worthy of single
tickets, due to a lack of co-operation between
Science faculty and Council.
As a matter of fact there has not been a
lack of co-operation on the part of Council, but
if the Science men persist in their selfish attitude friction will undoubtedly arise in the
In refusing to accept the preferred single
tickets Council has taken the only possible
course. The Science Executives have done
nothing but exhibit their own narrow spirit.
From all accounts the bright young lads
constituting the Pep Club had a very merry
time at Hi-Jinx on Wednesday night. Their invasion of this peculiarly women's function will
likely create a precedent for the future.
If some of the more courageous of the males
on the campus want to take their fates in their
hands and attempt to chisel in on this function,
well and good, but when a recognized campus
organization proceeds en masse as interlopers,
it is time that Council took a hand in restricting their activities.
The only explanation of the conduct of the
club is that they wanted to display their undoubted masculine charm before the assembled
multitude of femininity. They might better devote their activities to the fostering of pep
This coming Sunday thirty-six students organized as "The International Relations Group"
are of their own initiative addressing city
church goers on the International Ideal.
Despite the kindly venom of our bombastic
Campus Crab, we believe the venture of these
enthusiasts will reflect favorably on the University reputation. It is a more direct method of
demonstrating student endeavors than the concentrating of energy exclusively on recognized
University organizations. As a matter of fact,
the group has purposely refrained from applying for recognition. It is simply a group of students united by a common ideal, and at such
deserves every encouragement.
From "McGill Daily"
It seems to be an established custom to compile statistics at the end
of a year, and from a survey of them
to prophesy trends and developments
for coming seasons. That this delightfully uncertain game of speculation is indulged elsewhere than in
the fields of business is revealed In
the annual anniversary number of
The Era, British trade journal of the
stage and screen. This is the fascinating question the paper put to representative actors, producers, critics,
managers, and theatre-goers:
"Which play produced in the last
ten years—1923-33—first occurs to
you, or appeals to you as worthy to
be a classic in 1984-and why?"
The results proved as fascinating
as the question, and are worth the
serious consideration of every playgoer and lover of the theatre, amateur ro professional. The Era's sum-
posium is, naturally, almost entirely
British and English plays for the
large part are considered.

in taste and outlook, the answers re
We get tired of hearing people pan Sinclair Lewis. One mentions him rather wistfully—Lewis fans are all wistful because they
happen to be largely outweighed—and the
usual answer is, "No, his books are too sordid." One is tempted to quote the line from
"Ann Vickers" which ran something like this:
"Ann was not unhappy in the slum environment. Her surroundings vvere rather
sordid, but like most sordid things, were comfortable." But one bites back the words in
the nick of time, and saves one's reputation
by a hairbreadth.
The next complaint of the anti-Lewis fac-
tion is: "He writes of such horrible things, and ^££SX£L 7ZZ&

reports, we remember the enormous
output of plays during the last decade, it may surely be regarded as
of so small significance that if the
vote wm taken on proportional representation lines, Shaw's play would
be placed on top on the first count.
Shaw's play received 16 votes. Here
are the others, in order:: Journey's

Among the distinguished contributors who placed "St. Joan" at the
top of the list are:
SYBIL THORND1KE (creator of
The Maid): "I think my answer must
undoubtedly be 'Saint Joan' for the
reason that this is a play written by
a wise and brilliant man, on a subject that is of world interest as well
as of real human interest."
necessary that one think of them.
It's in connection with this that we bring
the point up. Perhaps you've read "Ann
Vickers," and if you have you probably
thought Mr. Lewis was drawing, perhaps overdrawing the drama and corruption in prison
life.  We were skeptical, too.
Last week the Commissioner of Correction for New York City conducted an investigation into Welfare Island, New York County
Penitentiary, and not one of the vices mentioned in Mr. Lewis' account was missing.
A certain newsmagazine reports that Vanity Fair scooped the nation by getting out their
February edition containing an article on Welfare Island nine days before the investigation
took place. And so we wish to inform the magazine, also "Vanity Fair," and you, and the
whole wide world, that Mr. Lewis scooped
them by a matter of seven months.
He was, by the way, fired from the Associated Press years ago for Incompetence.
We've changed the name of the useless
information as you can see. After all, culture boils down to knowing a lot of things that
you don't have to know, and if you don't have
to know them, you can't use them often. And
the spelling is that way because it seems to
give it class, and it makes it more "refayned."
Did you ever hear of W. C. Handy?
There's a name you should remember. Way
back in 1909 a gentleman whose name was Edward H. Crump ran for the office of mayor of
Memphis. Crump hired a band to make his
campaign louder, and the band he chose belonged to a dusky gentleman called Handy.
A sort of handy-man.
Mr. Handy wrote him a tune which ran:
"Mister Crump don't 'low no eeeeea-sy riders
Crump don't 'low no eeea-sy riders here."
and the whole thing boiled down to a tune
called the Memphis Blues. This was two years
before "Alexander's Rag Time Band," and it
opened the jazz era.
A few years later, Mr. Handy produced his
magnum opus, ''St. Louis Blues." Nuff said.
Handy's the name.   Don't forget it.
Spring recalls many things, but. what we're
thinking of now doesn't seem quite relevant.
In case you miss the connection, it's about the
old and time-honored pun, spring in the air.
There was a dancer, a member of the Russian ballet in the good old days when a gentleman called Nicholas lived in Russia. Came the
revolution, and went the dancer to foreign
France proved to be his next stoppin'
place, and there he constructed a wonderful
dance to the Debussy music, "L'Apres-midi
d'un Faun."
The high spot of the dance was at the
close, when the dancer scampered back stage
to a sort of cave opening, and with devastating
grace leapt through. No one could leap as this
dancer did.
"Can you explain the trick of the graceful leap?" asked an enterprising reporter.
"Well," said the dancer bewildered, "you
just jump into the air, and when you get to the
top, - - - - pause."
of many Shaw plays): "Posterity
alone can answer your question, but
I imagine that Bernard Shaw's 'Back
to Methusaleh, or the same author's
'Saint Joan,' would be as interesting
to the audience of 1984 as they are
to us today. For both these plsys
portray something deeper then the
surface currents of life, and deal
with things that cannot pass away."
"'Berkeley Square' is the play I
would choose as the most appealing,
and I do not see how it can ever become old-fashioned and out of date."
SIR NIGEL PLAYFAIR (distinguished producer): "In my opinion,
the only play produced in this period ia Tha Rose Without a Thorn,'
and it is the only one likely to be a
classic in 1984."
HERBERT FARJEON (critic, poet,
humorist): "Sean O'Casey's Ths
Plough and the Stars', because it is
superb literature aa well u fine drama—and to become a classic, a play
must be either literature or music."
JOHN GIELGUD (foremost Shakespearean actor): "I should say Somerset Maugham's 'The Circle' is worthy
to be a classic ln fifty years' time,
because it is the best comedy of manners 1 know."
SYDNEY CARROLL (critic and
manager): "The one play .... is
'Journey's End'—for ths simple res-
son that lt deals accurately, movingly, and in brilliant, dramatic fashion
with a greet situation and greet characters arising out of the greatest
event in our time."
CLIFFORD BAX   (dramatist  and
poet) "I should vote for The
Green Pastures,' because it gives a
sincere and brilliant picture of unsophisticated negro psychology and
will form a more and more interesting .record as time passes."
I C. B. COCHRAN (famed producer):
"I would uy that Sean O'Casey's
'The Silver Tassle' deserves to be a
classic in 1934, because it has a poet's
vision of the Grsat War and its aftermath in true perspective."
EDITH EVANS (foremost British
actress): "On the spur of the moment I choose 'Heartbreak House'."
"ROBERT ATKINS (producer):
classic in 1984, because it has a poet's
plsy by a modern author that has
beauty of language and a tenseness
of dramatic situation which at times
tend to greatness. It is full of acting
and of production possibilities, and
a story for all time."
ST JOHN ERVINE (dramatic critic
and dramatist): " 'St. Joan,' 'Juno
and the Paycock,' 'Journey's End,'
"The Circle,' 'Young Woodley,' 'The
Green Pastures,' 'The White-headed
Boy,' 'The Barretts of Wimpole Street',
'Gallows Glorious,' 'Design for Living,' 'For Services Rendered,' 'Musical Chairs'—All of these plays, especially the first, are worthy to be
classics, not only in 1984, but as long
as life lasts. When moving pictures
are exhibited only to the inmates of
penitentaries as an additional punishment these plays will still be flourishing."
J. T. GREIN (Doyen of London
dramatic critics): 'I vote for 'Saint
Joan,' and hope to see the realization
of my prophecy A.D. 1984."
GORDON HARKER (prominent
Cockney actor): "I should imagine
that 'Saint Joan' will have as good
a chance of survival as any play
that I can think of. Why? Just because in my opinion it Is a great
English actor): "In my opinion, the
three outstanding plays of the last
ten years are 'Saint Joan,' "The Apple Cart,' and "The Barretts of Wimpole Street.' They secured the theatre from camera studies, eternal triangles, and a mass of other nonsense,
and once more made the theatre a
resort for intelligent people. These
plays also gave the actors a chance
to act, a condition of playwrlting
which the modern dramatist had begun to overlook."

Varsity Rendezvous
Saturday afternoon saw another
scene of gaiety in the Georgian dining-room of the Hudson's Bay Company.
Once again Varsity's co-eds and
their escorts tripped the light fantastic to the snappy syncopation of Earle
Hill's melody-makers.
The co-eds are certainly well ahead
of the fashion season. Charming
Spring frocks in vivid colors and
sprightly prints added their freshness
and chic to the scene.
Almost any Saturday afternoon you
can find all the leaders of Varsity's
elite forgetting the sorrows of student life to the music of Earle Hill's
rhythm boys!
Services on Sunday at First Baptist Church, corner Nelson and Burrard streets, will be of unusual Interest At the morning service those
taking the Y.M.C.A. training course
will attend the service and Rev. Elbert Paul, the minister, will speak
on "The Master's Cods." In these
days of Industrial and business codes
it should be helpful to consider the
greatest code of living ever presented
to men.
For the evening service Mr. Paul's
subject is suggested by Thomas Hardy's poem of the same name, "God's
Funeral," end will consider some
modern tendencies towards philosophical atheism and indicate the characteristics that Christianity must have
to overcome such tendencies. Those
disturbed by recent trends, in Germany, Russia and elsewhere will be
interested in hearing this vital question frankly discussed.
The Saintly Faraday
Expounded at V.C.U.
Is it possible for a sclenceman to
be a devout Christian and a firm b-e
liever in the Bible? The Rev. J. E.
Harris, BA., proved that it was pes-
'sible, in the last century, when he
spoke on the subject: "Faraday—a
Scientist and a Saint" at a meeting
of the V.C.U. held on Wednesday.
The ancient oil lamps and horse-
drawn street-cars, that may still be
found in the odd museum, were succeeded by their modern counterparts
as a direct result of Faraday's work.
But between labs hs spent much of
his life in devotional exercises that
emphasized tbe beauty and simplicity
of his character.
When Faraday was dying, a friend
asked him what were his speculations. "Speculations," he replied, "I
have no speculations, I rest on certainties, for I know whom I have

Accomplished member of the International Players who are presenting,
starting Saturday, Feb. 10, "Spring
Cleaning," a brilliant dramatic com*
edy from the pen of one of England's
greatest living playwrights, Frederick Lonsdale, author of such outstanding successes aa "lite Last of
Mrs. Cheney," "Aren't We All," end
"The High Road." Mr. Craig, pictured above, has been seen, so far
in "heavy" roles but his versatility
enables him to step far outside these
bounds. As an actor, ho is a perfect
model for aspirants to dramatic fame
to follow.
"Scrambled Wives", which the International Players present this week,
is a joyous comedy which runs at
breakneck speed through all the complications that follow a divorcee attempting to land Number Two, a
little man with ideas about static
marriage, when Number One, trailing a mordantly auspicious wife,
makes his untimely appearance.
Farce seems to find it difficult to
be original. Lucille Smith wasn't ths
first lady to get her heel caught in
a grating. Larry McLeod wasn't the
first rescuing knight to keep next his
heart that heel inadvertantly detached in the grating. John Chlver-
ick wasn't the first man to sneeze so
disasteroulsy behind the window curtains of Lucille's bedroom. But when
such pleasing personalities as Barbara Brown, Leyland Hodgson and
Colin Craig play these characters,
we find new humor in the re-hash.
Barbara Brown fits well her part of
heart-of-gold schemer; Leyland Hodgson, whose danger is a too assured
stage presence, turns this to an asset
as the charming moonstruck; Colin
Craig gives another characterization
best described as completely adequate.
Finis Barton, the wife who still
feels emotional about it, acts with
unusual finesse her naive part as

Back again to my old Mends, the
International Relations Group. A few
ideas, which appear likely to remain
Ideas, though they deserve a better
fate. The gauntlet is thrown down In
the last paragraph.
A "spectacular and unprecedented
enterprise" is the label tacked on to
the proposal of filling church pulpits
with undergraduate speakers, with
which I had occasion to deal some
time ago. In the prospectus Issued by
this aspiring group, which you will
find elsewhere in this issue, you will
notice that they have pruned down
their objective to 36 leading church.ee.
It also disavows any intention to rep-
represent the University.
This is si) to the good. The ques-
tionsvthst remain are at least two.
Have they pruned the number of pulpits down far enough to equal the
number of competent speakers and
will they honestly strive to make clear
to the publio that they are not connected with the University except by
the llect that they happen to be students here?
Ii these two conditions are fulfilled,
the group may consider itself on a
somewhat sane basis; though from
common gossip the first, and from my
own knowledge of human nature, the
second qualifications are of a very
doubtful achievement.
Thia ot course, leaves out of the question entirely the moral obligation to
the University which these enthusiasts,
in common, sad to say, with most of
the other Campus Clubs, blithely
shirk by diverting their energies to
publicity stunts when there are so
many crying needs in the University
itself that stand in want of Just these
exertions. However, these latter projects are sure to be largely hard work
and little reward, so perhaps it is not
surprising. At least we may rejoice
in the possession of the two or three
more Campus Pooh Bahs that the new
organisation is about to contribute to
our local Silly Symphony.
Just as a sample to convince my
good friends, whose activity, sincerity and idealism I commend aa
highly as I deprecate their ill advised
and grandiose projects, that they could
direct the eruption of their irrepressible virtues toward objectives that
may leave them, as individuals, in
comparatively humble obscurity, but
would do far more to advance the
actual welfare of their Alma Mater
than the pryrotechnlcs that are so
common here, I will suggest a few.
These will not be found to be of
"spectacular" quality or "unprecedented" magnitude, but if the Legion
of Supreme Potentates will cast an un-
predjudiced eye around the campus,
they will find them to be very similar to those works of their predecessors which have survived after the
smoke of battle and dust of conflict
have blown away and left most of the
undertakings as flat as the previously over-inflated mentalities that conceived them.
Here are some of the few that immediately occur to me. A revision of
the curriculum in the interests of the
student body. An effort to support our
major sports organizations in a manner appropriate to the standing and
size of the University. An effort to
support these organizations, such as
the Parliamentary Forum, which do
cast some credit on the University by
their work and achievements. The furnishing of a decent common room for
the men. The erection or a conversion of some building suitable for a
social hall, where the students may
hold University functions, and mix
to a greater extent then is possible in
the desert of corridors and class-rooms
that at present rorm our campus.

voiciterous flock of Supreme Omnipotent Gas Bags could be herded to-

Tenor of Speeches
The speakers, while retaining their
individual interpretations have adopt*
ed four points as a poeslble basis for
their discourses.
(1) That in this obviously interdependent world system in which we
live an isolated, self-sufficient, rabidly nationalistic policy is uncivilized. That the spirit of national self*
ishness and greed ought to be condemned by our citizens as much as
those faults are condemned in sn individual.
(2) That no nation Is justified ln
going to war to solve its dittteultles.
(3) That no man should be discriminated against because of race, creed
or color.
(4) We believe as young people
that internationalism is en express*
Ion of the natural culmination ot a
development that has been In progress throughout history.
Prominent Speakers
The speakers will include many
names prominent on the campus: Milt
Owen, president M.U.S.; Edward Fox,
exchange sttident; Ernest Brown,
Frank Millar, Jim Ferris, prominent
debaters; Cyril Chave, organiser; Bob
McMaster, president S.CJM.; Cam
Gorrie, president Tuxls Parliament
and Y.M.C.A.; F. Tenada, radio
speaker; Estelle Matheson, G. L. Collins, Andy Broatch, Jerry Hunter and
others. Tlie whole graduating classes of both Anglican and United
Church are speaking.
The movement is given the sanction
of United Church and Presbyterian
Presbyteries, Bishop de Pender for
the Anglican Church, Rabbi Cass,
the Religious Education Councils of
B. C, and Prof. Topping aa president
offers the support of the League of
Nations Society.
An Independent Organization
The Group wishes to make it clear
that it does not purport to represent
the University. It is simply an organization of students with a common
ideal. After its enterprise of Feb. 11
(which is the first day of International Week), the Groups program
will be continue^. For one thing,
churches have been promised for future occasions which were unavailable this Sunday.
The speaker at First United Church
will be broadcast, 7:30, over CKFC.
There will be a debate next Tuesday at 7:30 in Arts 100 on "Resolved
that B. C. should revert to the status
of a crown colony." Jack Sumner
will lead the affirmative and Jack
Fisher the negative.

Things we are wondering about:
• •   •
Why, if the Basketball Club was refused permission to use the gym. on
a recent occasion for
a dance to stimulate
Interest in the art of
casaba tossing on
this flair campus, the
Women's Undergrad,
with no guarantee
that the floor would
be cleaned up afterward, were allowed
to hold a riot of dish-throwing and
lemonade spilling in that same gym
the other night?
• *   •
Why, If the Senior A zone defence which carried them to the
Mainland Championship last year
can work ao well -gainst other
great teams to their sorrow, the
Westminster Adanacs can, with a
mere man-ln-the-holeplay, turn
thai defease into an actual drawback?
• •  •
Why, if it has been proven that
such a system Is winning games
against Vanity for the Mustard-Shirts,
Varsity does not abandon it and substitute a man-to-man defence, which
every player on the team can stand
better than their opponents because
of their rigorous training experience
on a large floor?
• •   •
Why, a deliquescent organisation
like the Students' Council, which
has, some say, the final word in
such matters, can ordain that no
athlete ln attendance at what is
called U.B.C. can play for an outside team, It cannot also lay down
that no graduate of this institution
can perform in alien strip, which
would be no more absurd?
• *   *
Why students, who will pack Players' Club "performances" to the neglect of their studies, cannot see their
way clear to spend an evening watching one of the most thrilling games on
this continent, as played by one of
the fastest teams ln this section of the
country, especially when that team is
entering the finals of its league?
• •   •
Why the basketball executive
doesn't do something about their
"president" Instead of letting all
the burden fall on a sadly-overworked Senior Manager?

Event Postponed
The famous event was scheduled to
come off on Feb. 7th, but was postponed after a heated discussion by
the members of the club. A rugby
practice was held last Wednesday for
players in the McKechnie Cup game.
This meant that many Track Club
members had to turn out for rugby,
and so the race was postponed for
that reason, and not because the Swedish yen fluctuated In value, as was
reported In the last Issue.
Editorial Comment
It will be an inspiring spectacle
to see lusty Sid Swift, George Allen,
et al, wend their way along the careening course, it is tentatively expected that many others will don bathing
suits in order to enter into the full
spirit of the event.
The record for the course in IS min.,
13 seconds, and under favorable conditions freshmen can finish in two
hours. Any Aggies entering the event
will find fiendish delight in picking
their way through plowed fields on
the course.
Here's the Course
The course has its start and finish
on the Mall in front of the Administration Building. It goes first to the
Agronomy Building, then turns right
and follows a plowed field. The contestants will experience wandering
through bridle paths and wading
through bushes. They will then Inspect the chicken pens to see whether
production is keeping up to its proper statistical quotas. Finally after
IS minutes or so of this, they emerge
at the creamery and head down an
old road which leads to the Mall, and
then comes the finish.
Will Theh Frosh Enter?
It is hoped that the Frosh will have
some competitors in the race, and
thus keep up the good reputation of
Arts '37.
Science Vs Arts Again
Sciencemen and Artsmen will battle
in order to put their respective faculties on top. Among the Sciencemen
to enter will be Phil Northcott, Alfie

English Ruggers play Victoria Rep
Team. These teams have already met
once this year in Victoria and the
result was a draw 0-0. Both teams
have a defeat at the hands of Vancouver Rep. to live down and will be
out for Varsity tomorrow. The odds
are on the Varsity team but they will
have to fight.
Alumna Seen In Action
At least two alumni of the University will be playing on the Victoria
team. Charlie Schultz, Forestry '31,
and BiU Bobbins, Arts '32, will both
be in the Victoria Pack.
Plenty of Men Available
Jack Tyrwhitt, coach, and Ken Mercer, Captain of the Varsity team, always have difficulty in choosing the
team from enthusiastic students available. Filling the fullback position is
giving some trouble. Kendall, Canadian Rugby star, and Goumenank, the
second team tackling wizard, are possibilities but one of the spare forwards
may be called on. Tne three-quarter
line will remain the same as usual
but Derry Tye will be back to make
the connecting link with the pack.
Derry injured his side in a practice
last week and was unable to play
against Vancouver Rep. All the forwards are fit and raring to go.
Get Out To the Game
The game will be good. English
Rugby at the Point, is becoming increasingly popular and wih tickets
selling at only 10 cents everyone
should visit Brockton Point tomorrow and support a Varsity team.
Fraternity Ball Games
Commence Next Week
The upper playing field will be the
scene of the first of the inter-fraternity softball series beginning next
week. The various Greek factions are
warming up to set in shape for the
first battle between Alpha Kappa
Alpha and Phi Kappa Pi.
The Fijls are now the proud possessors of the coveted gold pot. With
the large number of casaba tossers
available ,the Fijls seem favoured to
retain the cup this year. If they win
lt, it will be its third successive year
in the possession of Phi Gamma
The series begins February 18 and
is scheduled as follows:
Alpha Kappa Alpha vs. Phi Kappa
Chi Omega Psi vs. Sigma Phi Delta.
Alpha Delta Phi vs. Sigma Alpha
Phi Gamma Delta vs. Kappa Theta
Zeta Psi vs. Phi Delta Theta.
Pi Kappa vs. Alpha Rho Sigma.
The opening stages are expected to
present some interesting varieties of
softball because of lack of practice
of the Greeks.

Soccermen Meet Renfrew Argyle
Full Team Is Confident Of Victory
Argyles Have Strong Team
Keenlyside Brothers
Win  In  Seattle
It seems that Varsity has at least
two ping-pong experts in its midst.
The Keenlyside brothers, Bill of Arts
'34, and Harold of Arts '36, played
in five winning matches in the Washington State championship games.
Both men were victorious in their
respective singles events, and also
paired in the men's doubles, beating
the Washington team to the tune of
21-11 and 21-12.
The games were played in Seattle;
and the Keenlyside boys showed fine
form to beat their American rivals.
The older brother, Bill, had made a
trip to Seattle some time ago and
cleaned up the champion there. He
is ako the champion of Vancouver.
After skipping last Saturday Thun
derblrd Soccermen return to league
play  tomorrow  when   they   engage
Renfrew Argyles at the latter's home
ground at 2:30 p.m.
This encounter should prove inter
estlng for a number of reasons. The
Argyles are back to the V. and D.
Loop after two seasons of wandering
during which time they played In the
2nd division of the former Pacific
Coast League and in the Senior City
League until it was reorganized by
the Triumvirate.
In their first start this year these
men of Renfrew held the strong Re
gents to a 1-1 draw, but lost their
last engagement to Art Monument
who have beer- defeated only once
during the entire season.
Downed Varsity Before
However, so far as Varsity are concerned, the Arygles' biggest claim to
fame lies in the 7-1 trouncing they
handed the Blue and Gold about three
years ago, when both squads were
entered in the 2nd division. The college boys have not forgotten this artistic passing and will certainly be
out to reduce the deficit tomorrow,
Manager Creamer states that his
13 charges are all primed to do noble
deeds against Renfrew. Todd's leg
is back to its normal size, and Mc
[ Gill has completely recovered from a
previous ankle injury. Some import
ant changes have been effected in
the line-up and the attack, on paper
at least, appears stronger than ever
before. Stewart has been moved up
to the right-wing position in favour
of Smith, and Martin, centre, will
switch with Kozoolin who has been
playing regularly at inside-right. The
left flank remains the same.
The team, then, will read as follows: Greenwood, goal; Waugh and
McGill, backs; Thurber, Wolfe and
Costain, halves; Stewart, Martin, Kozoolin (c), MacDougall and Todd,
forwards; Smith and Sutherland, substitutes.
Arts '35, Herb Barclay, Arts '34, and
Dave Pugh.
If the weather is good, the indications are that Jack Chappelle's record is in clanger of being broken.

Adanacs Head
Loop, Get Bye
in Playoffs
Adanacs Work Efficiently
Last night at the Varsity Gym. Adanacs defeated the Students 31-22 in
a sudden death game to get a bye
into the finals of the League playoffs.
Ken Wright and Mayers soon gave
the Adanacs a 4-point lead that they
maintained fairly consistently through
the first half. The Adanacs played
the waiting game that beat Varsity
a week or so ago. And even Mayers
curtailed his shooting, thouugh every
shot he did make was deadly. Tlie period ended 16-12 tor the Adanacs.
Allen's Miracle
In the half time interval Coach
Allen by some mystical means gave
his squad a new lease of life, end
they ran ln 7 points before the Royal
City boys found their feet But the
Adanaes had a play or two te get
around the Varsity zone defence and
that was soon working so efficiently
that,they scored 15 points to 1 of the
r Rally Falls
, A last minute rally failed to bring
the score up but 2 points, and the Adanacs won 31-22. Varsity now have te
play and beat McKenzie-Fraser, who
held third place, to have the privilege of meeting the Adanacs In the
League finals.
Varsity; Osborne (5), Nicholson (8),
Pringle CO), Bardsley (3), Wiiloughby
(5), Wright (0), MacDonald (3), McCrimmon (0), MacKee (0), Mansfield
(0). Total-22.
Senior B Hoopers
Out Of Playoffs
Lose To Storemen
Varsity's Senior B Basketmen saw
their chances of reaching the G. V.
A.A. League playoffs vanish on Monday night when they were defeated
by Woodwards at King Edward Gymnasium 34-25. The Thunderbirds kept
right on the tail-feathers of the store-
men in the first half, finishing on the
short end of a 10-9 score, but In the
second period let their opponents, led
by Jacobson, gradually increase their
lead to take the encounter,
Score Close
In the opening period the play and
thf score were close. For Varsity,
Biff MacLeod turned in a fine performance to gain 6 of the students'
9 markers. However, Woodwards were
also functioning well and were ahead
10-9 at the half time whistle.
Final Period Fast
The final period opened fast with
both teams striving hard for the lead.
At this time, however, Jacobson of
the department store squad began te
break away frequently and continually boosted the Woodward's total. Varsity continued to press hard but the
13 points garnered by Jacobson proved too fcreat an obstacle and the final
whistle found the Thunderbirds down
25-34.   '
Out of Running
This loss puts Varstiy out of the
running for the league playoffs, as
they needed this win to tie for third
place. For the winners, Jacobson led
theh scoring with 17 points. While Biff
MacLeod played well for the students
to amass 12.
Woodwards: Cook (4), Jacobson (17),
Stark (6), Ross (5), Holden (2). Total
Varsity: MacLeod (12), Harper (2),
Phillips (4), Sutton (4), Idyll (1),
Spence (2). Total—25.
