3000 At Big:
Under a cloudless sky that
brought cheer to the hearts
of student officials, the U.B.C.
stadium was packed -with Its
flrst crowd Saturday, and was
opened officially by Hon. O.
M. Weir.
■right   aunahlns   brought   2000
visitors   to   tho   oampua   for   tho
event, another  1000 studsnts being   paekod   Into   ths   bleaehora.
•andwlchsd     In     bstwoon     two
games, both of whieh Varsity lost,
brief esrsmonios marked tho baptism of the stadium.
Dave Carey,  ln  rugby  strip covered  by a trench coat, handed  the
stadium   over  to   Chancellor   R.   K.
McKechnie, who received it on behalf of the University.
Recalling that it was not long
ago that he had seen the University
accept the student-built gymnasium
under similar circumstances, Dr.
McKechnie thanked the A. M. S.
president, and Introduced the minister of education.
Dr.   Weir,   in   a  brief   but  to-the-
point   address,   reviewed   U.   B.   C.
athletic  achievement,  stressing  the
number    of    championship    calibre
teams the University has produced.
He   remarked   on   the   part the
Students     are     playing      In     the
growth of the University, and the
addition to Its facilities.
"This   Is   unique   among   educational   Institutions,"  Dr.  Weir declared, in speaking of student efforts In their building program.
The   ceremonies   were    preceded
by    a    minute    of    silence,    as    the
crowd stood in tribute to those students   who   lost   their   lives   during
the summer vacation.
Presentation of the Canadian
championship basketball trophy to
the U. B. C. squad by Walter Hard-
wick completed the short program.
Entertainment and music was
provided by the Firemen's Band,
under the direction of Will Edmunds.
Every feature ot the day's program went oft without a hitch, making the affair one of the most colorful in the history of the university.
From the east side of the field,
opposite the stands, the  stadium
and   bleachers  stretched   out  the
length   of the   field,  packed  with
From   time   to   time   during   the
Play,  roars of excitement ascended
from    the   stands,   feeling    for   the
first   time   the   thrill   of   a   happy,
tense    crowd,     with    every    person
watching     the     teams     in     their
struggle for success.
In the bleachers, students were
packed into the smallest possible
spaces. The wooden stands shook
as the crowd swayed to the "varsity
rock," or stamped in unison following any one of a hundred varsity
yells   given   during   the   day.
The scene waa "collegiate," capturing for the flrst time on the U.
B.C. campus some of the college
spirit that always attends major
athletic events at older universities.

Declares Bob
Braaeh of the A.M.S. Code waa
admitted   by   Bob   Tillman,   paid
aeeretary  of  the   8.  C.   M.,   In   a
atatement to the Ubyaaey yesterday.     Aoeordlng  to  Tillman,  tho
8. C. M. amended tholr constitution two yeara ago to provide for
a paid aeoretary, but negleoted to
forward the amendment to Student's Counoil.
When   asked   to   comment   upon
the methods of raising money, the
secretary   said:    "Our   budget   has
never gone through the Alma Mater
Society.     But neither does  that ot
other societies."
The S. C. M. ls now waiting upon
Council's answer to a letter In
which they forwarded the two-
years • late amendment, together
with a budget for the session. Tillman's status ls still ln doubt, pending the answer.
Asked if the S. C. M. were angry
at the sudden raising of the money
question, lllman said: 'Wait till we
get our answer from Council. We
may be then."

Froah Swing, Streamers

That ever debatable question of
whether Canada abolish her national defence will be a given most
severe and critical examination

themselves in a predicament.

Barney Potts' Oriental Garden orchestra began to fan the enthusiasm
already .in the air at the Pep Meeting  Saturday noon.
With Popsters Van Perry and
Orant Cameron as masters of ceremonies, the audience was treated

the   afternoon   games.
Starting   off   with    hla   theme

speaking are invited to attend the
flrst meeting of the Literary Forum
to be held today in Arts 103 at 12:30
The Literary Forum is the only
public speaking and debating society for women on the campus. It

a successful debate with the U. of
Washington women and a debate
with the Parliamentary Forum.

Library Already
The U. B. C. Library, originally built to accommodate a
university student population
far below that now on the
campus, is over-taxed 60 per
cent., Librarian John Ridington told the Ubyssey Monday.
Although Mr. Ridington did not
comment on measures to correct
this serious condition, lt is felt on
the campus that the time ls more
than overdue for an extensive building program to Increase university
The  Library, crowded as  It Is,
Is  not the  only  building  on  the
oampua feeling a strain under tbe
consistently   Increasing   registration from year to year.
Agitation on the part of the student  body,  it  is felt,  might  lead  to
fulfilment of the  building  program
at this time, when government expenditures on public buildings and
other ventures are  being launched
almost  daily.
In the Library Monday, effeeta
of the overcrowding were notloed,
although   the   term   la   only   two
weeka old.    Moat of the aeata In
the  reading  room  were oeoupled
during    the    day,    obaervora    declared.
Speaking to the Ubyssey, Mr. Ridington   outlined   some   of   the   features   that   can   be   expected   if   the
Library   is   enlarged,   to   Include   a
new wing.
Plans for the new wing, to be
built on the south side of the Library, include a large reading room
extending from the present one; a
large periodical room below, mm-
seum, music room, stacks, storage
space, book bindery, and a special
audition room for recording student
The  new wing would  cost  $400,-
000 finished ln granite like the present Library.    A concrete structure
would   cost   less   than   $300,000.
The new unit would more than
double   the   seating   accommodation., and ahould prove sufficient
for the needs of 2500 students.
Plans for the finished Library
show a building capable of housing
2,000,000 volumes. With wings on
both sides the completed structure
would form a quadrangle around
the Lily Pond with the two permanent Arts Buildings which are
planned to occupy the ground adjoining  the  central   Mall.
Big Parade Will Start
Homecoming Festivities
One of the largest Homecoming
programs in the history of the university was released yesterday by
Junior Member John Brynelsen.
Commencing with the reunion dinner on Friday, October 29, it will
swing into the main program the
following day.
A pep meeting will be followed
by a mammoth parade of cars
through the downtown district,
returning to the Stadium for the
traditional Occasional - Varsity
English rugby tilt at 2 p.m. Following this .the Hardy Cup series
game with University of Alberta
will bring the Canadian footballers Into action.
A Tea Dance in the gymnasium
at 5 o'clock will continue the day.
Those who find tea inadequate will
dine in the Caf at 6.
Evening functions will start with
a basketball game between a grads
team and the Senior A Varsity five.
The scene will then shift to the
Auditorium for plays by both the
Graduate Players' Club and the
Undergrad   Society.
Arrangements by the alumni are
in the hands of Milton Owen, former Council member, and President
of the Alumni Association, while
John Brynelsen is managing the
student.  _iiil.

Since 1924 the students of this university have contributed over $130,000 to the capital assets of the University.
In actual cash they* have raised $21,000 now in trust, towards
the proposed Brock Memorial Buildings.
Since 1924 the Provincial Government has added practically nothing to the accommodation provided for university
students in spite of the fact that the number of those seeking
an advanced education has nearly doubled. And now the conditions of overcrowding are as bad as they were in the miserable days before the Point Grey site was ever occupied.
To quote President Klinck: "The present state of overcrowding . . . can produce either a further decline in the
standards that have gained so favorable a reputation for the
University, or else a further limitation in numbers."
Obviously either of these results would be a destructive
blow to our University.
But why should the University suffer a serious blow
when increased accommodation would remove it from the
present danger?
The bridge at New Westminster was too crowded, so a
new $3,000,000 span will take its place. Forty-two internes
of the General Hospital were too crowded, so a $60,000 home
is being provided for them. The Provincial Mental Hospital
was too crowded, so it got a $500,000 addition. Two thousand
two hundred and fifty university students are too crowded,
in buildings designed for a maximum of 1500, but not a cent
is allowed for increased accommodation.
The students have done their part, now let the government act.
To the Editor, Ubyssey.
Already I hear numerous complaints about the questionable ethics of some of the students, in the
matter of not paying promptly
their room and board bills. The old
"chestnut" excuse of being a bit
short, ls once more being trotted
out, not so much by freshies, as
hard-boiled men of several years'
Varsity standing. For the last year
or two I have ceased opening my
home to student boarders, but I
know of several ladies who are this
session being worried by the Inexpressibly mean tacts of those students who have the nerve to come
to a private homo and expect to
pay up at any old time. The only
term for such ls the good old English word "cad." Not an appellation  to  covet,  is  it?
Some of the ladies talk of getting
together nnd making out a blacklist of such students, as on effective
check on tho reprehensible practice referred to. Perhaps too, Mr.
Editor, a brief but trenchant leader
by yourself on "Play the game, and
pay your board hills promptly"
might  have  a  salutary  effect.
"Bis  dat qui  clto dat."
The Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear  Sir:
Last Friday I attempted to procure several copies of modern plays
which are supposed to belong to
our Library. I discovered that the
entire collection of modern drama
had been borrowed by the Players'
I have no fault to find with the
Players' Club as an institution, but
in this case I feel they have invaded the rights of Individual students. Library fees are paid by Individuals, not by organizations, and
books should be loaned accordingly.
If people wish to borrow plays in
the name of a club, that is their
own business, but the loan should
be subject to the same rules and
time limits as loans to anyone elce.
ARTS   '38.
For years the Musical Society
has had the exclusive right to stage
any musical offering on this campus. Naturally, no one would think
of questioning that right, even today. It would be alike to suggesting that the Players' Club should
start to print a rival campus newspaper to the Ubyssey.
Yet, the rest of the campus still
has the right to demand that the
Musical Society should use its
monopoly rights in the interest of
the entire student body.
Indirectly, but from one who is
usually accurate to the utmost degree, I have heard that our musicians and their executive are beginning to show a tendency to disregard any suggestion that arises
from without their own ranks.
For a good many years, the
Musical Society has promised us a
glee club. We have waited*, and are
still  waiting.
It was therefore to our surprise
that we learned that this group
took special pains recently to nip
in the bud a glee club proposal,
made by a non-member of the Musical  Society.
Now, If the Musical Society have
the singers and the time to build
up a glee club, then it's their primary right so to do. On the other
hand, if the society has not the
material, nor tho time, why should
it display an unpleasant manifestation of its own authority?
A glee club is needed on the
campus. Let those who would form
such an organization go ahead With
their plans, with the support, if
only moral, of the Musical Society.
Bickering over rights and authority  tends to make our enlightened
musicians look a bit silly.

Freshman initiation of any
type whatsoever will have died on
this campus by the time the next
class   of  newcomers  registers.
It is not hard to make such a
prophecy these days, as one sees on
all hands the signs of decay in
an institution that once reached
glorious heights of cacomplishment.
More than half of the class of '41
are living on the campus minus
items of their regalia, some of them
never bought their hats, nail polish
and placards, and others have
ceased  to  wear  them.
There is no respect being shown
by the freshies this year to seniors.
Products of a high school system
that teaches them to question all
authority, our freshmen are the
first of a new kind of university
They have learned in high school
much that used to be considered
part of what a university had to
offer. They are not amused at
green hats an dother such "stuff
and  nonsense."
They will see to it that there Is
none of such useless insanity to
greet   those   of   '42.
S. M. U. S.
A modest speaker gave this year's
opening address to the U.E.S. He
had unlimited subject matter of
extreme Interest to choose from, if
he wished to speak on any one
phase of his own great projects.
Out of sheer modesty, however, he
chose for his subject the works of
a pioneer engineer, Robert Stevenson.
He stressed the importance for
an engineer to know the history of
his profession. This stress is well
exemplified in the speaker himself,
for last year his topic was the life
of Thomas Telford, who is generally
referred to as the "father of civil
engineering." This year he obtained his subject matter from the
autobiography of Robert Stevenson
and from the book, "A Family of
Engineers," by the famous Robert
Louis Stevenson,
Dean Finlayson took us through
Robert. Stevenson's life from birth
to death, pointing out how the
different conditions such as his natural inheritance, and his mother's
remarriage moulded him into an
engineer. He quoted from Robert
Louis Stevenson a very livid and
inspiring description of the building of the Inchcape Rock lighthouse. In this quotation, the engineer within Dean Finlayson came
out, for he did not bother to correct
for our convenience such expressions, considering the "present" age
of the lighthouse, whereas when
Steenson erred by measuring stress
in ft.-lbs, he pointed out the correct
units and made a humorous remark
about the author's engineering
On Thursday next, the year's flrst
Snius meeting will be held. In spite
of the apparent lack of spirit in Sc.
'41, it is expected that the upperclassmen will float the meeting
through to a howling success.

Teachers*   Head
Speaks   Here
Students Interested in education
heard Mr. Harry Charlesworth
Monday noon when he spoke on the
development of the Teacher Federation.
Mr. Charlesworth, who is on the
executive of the B. C. Federation,
dealt chiefly with the origin of the
B. C. group and its accomplishments.
The federation was formed in
1910 because of a need felt by the
teachers to express themselves
freely without the disapproval of
the authorities. Previously all conferences had been held by the Provincial   Department of  Education.
The new organization debarred
from its membership all officers of
the department. This has done much
towards co-operation between teachers and the department at Victoria.
The other provinces soon followed
the lead of B. C. and in 1921 the
Canadian Teachers' Federation was
The B. C. Federation is itself
composed of about fifty district
associations. There is hope that by
the end of October eleven more of
these associations will be formed
in Prince Rupert, Prince George
and Burns Lake.
Mr. Charlesworth spoke briefly of
the aims of the Federation and its
accomplishments. Its flrst aim was
to raise the status of education.
This has been done principally by
doing away with final exams. It is
hoped that this system will extend
to Junior Matric. Also on this same
line has been a change in curriculum.
Of greatest interest to them were
the steps taken for the welfare of
teachers. Today the salaries of
teachers in B. C. are on a much
higher scale than the salaries of
any  other  province.

One of the principal features of
an award in the past has always
been that the winner
AWARD A had to do something
LA CARTE outstanding to merit
one. While it would
no doubt be very nice to see every
woman participating in anything
remotely resembling a sport, with
a sweater, the award worn by so
many people would no longer have
any particular significance. The
energetic and onstandlng player
would have exactly the same sweater as the plodder. Not that the
plodder Bhoxtld go awardless, but
the Big Block is hardly appropriate.
The winners of the Big Block ln
the past have had to take an Interest In something much more difficult than folk-dancing or archery,
neither of which require any special skill or rigid training. But the
main point, and the one which women have apparently a constitutional inability to perceive, is the
fact that value ls dependent on
scarcity. When everyone has something it automatically loses whatever worth It may have had. And
the proposed Award System not
only destroys any future significance for the Big Block, but, by
lowering the standards, renders less
valuable past awards.
The women on this campus seem
to lend themselves to the sillier
sort ot thing. While
ANO NOW they would probably

the features of their scatterbrained
activity ls the sorority  cabaret.
Of course, the proceeds go to a
worthy cause. But why any group
of college women, whose main interest ls the elusive male and the
clothes with which they drape the
body beautiful, should plunge furiously Into the night life business,
(about which they know rather
less than a Zulu from the promoter's angle, however much they
know, or think they know, from the

these dear good-hearted girls did it

The gals get overcharged for 90

The Exchange Editor
A much embarrassed freshman In
in a most amorous clinch with a
kidding co-ed Is the latest contribution to initiation ot the U. ot
Western  Ontario.
Friday's "Gazette" from this fair
institution offers its readers a candid camera shot of this latest phenomenon ln student Introductory
activities. And although President
Fox of that university declares that
"he doesn't like it," the boys around
the campus think it "swell."
Envious man is liable to think
any such thing swell. But we are
willing to bet that many co-eds
were wishing that they had that
very earthy something called 'guts'
which the young lady in the picture seemed to possess.
Although we do not uproariously
applaud the specific action In question, we do approve most mightily
the co-operative attitude of the coed—a nebulous something or other
whjich our own co-eds don't seem to
Whether or not the amorous embrace is conducive to a better Initiation we are not prepared to say.
But we do think that an up and
coming attitude ln the hands of coeds during aud/or at some of our

We refer in particular to that
resurrected free-for-all known as
the "Frosh Mixer." The main idea
of this democratic attempt at cooperative Introduction tell hy the
wayside last Wednesday when 28
or so upperclass women backslid
Into thinking that It would be more
fun to dance than to observe the
rules of the game and to see that
Little  Sister got off to a  big start.
We noticed not a few freshettes
forlornly warming the benches,
while big sisters tripped the light
We were standing on the sidelines noting the names of the aforesaid 28, most of whom are well
known, and being ln doubt as to
the identity of one or two, inquired
of a "social coverage" co-ed who
had Just come off the floor to fill
up the vacant spaces In front of us.
The lady. Miss Bunty Butters,
last year's secretary of the class
of Arts '40, seemed to resent the
check-up muchly—so much, in fact,
that she retorted defiantly to our
jibe that. It would make good news,
"soon   it  won't   make   news   at  all."
That did shut us up for the moment. For It did seem aa if it
wouldn't be news before long if
that was the attitude of class executives, riut then It wouldn't be
news In any event, we decided later.      It  smelled   too   much!
It Is no wonder that with such
an attitude to attempts to normalize and systematize initiation, rank
failure to get together on the campus leers the rreshman In the face,
so that to holster up his ego he
goes off the deep end in some more
violent   and    more    public   fashion.

For '38 Rhodes
Schalor   Listed
Applications Must Be
Turned in By Last
Day of This Month
Choice of the Rhodes Scholar for
1938 will be made by the British
Columbia Selection Committee early
in December.
A scholar is elected for two years
in  the  flrst  instance, with  the  opportunity of extension for  a third
year.   In most instances the scholars enter Oxford with a University
Degree,   and   two   years'   study   is
sufficient for their Oxford Degree.
The   third   year  may   then   be
spent in research or working towards  further  degrees. The  stipend is £400 per annum, although
the    Trustees    recommend    that
where   possible   scholars   supplement  this  by   an  additional  £50
per annum.
Applications   must  be   submitted
to   the   Secretary   of   the   Selection
Committee, W. Thomas Brown, 470
Granville Street, Vancouver, before
October 31, 1037. The general qualifications are that the applicant be
a British subject with at least Ave
years domicile in Canada.
He must be unmarried and must
have passed his nineteenth but not
his twenty-fifth birthday on October 1st of the year for which he is
elected, and must also by that date
have completed two years' study at
one of the Universities in Canada.
An applicant may make application for a Scholarship in the pro
vine© in which his home is situated
or for any province in which he had
received at least two years of his
university education before apply
In making the selection the Com
mittee follows that section of the
will of Cecil Rhodes in which he
defined the general type of scholar
he desired. Four qualifications were
mentioned which are briefly:
(1) Literary and Scholastic attainments; (2) Qualities of manhood, truth, courage, devotion to
duty,   sympathy,   kindliness,   unselfishness   and   fellowship;    (3)
Exhibition    of    moral    force    of
character and of instincts to lead
and   to  take   an   interest   in   his
fellows;   (4)   Physical   vigor,   as
shown by  fondness  for and success in outdoor sports.
Mr.    Rhodes    desired    that    his
scholar should be chosen for a due
combination of those attributes and
he laid special emphasis upon those
mental    nnd     moral    qualifications
which would be "likely in after-life
to  guide  them  to  esteem  the   performance  of  public duties  as  their
highest aim."
Application forms for Scholarship
are now obtainable from the Registrar of the University of British
Columbia and from the Secretary
of the Selection Committee.

To Former Teammates in One-Sided
Stadium Scramble
All the band blarlnga, side-line quarterbaoka, and even the novel,
aereeehlng "Thunderbird hoots" of two thouaand Varaity fana failed
to bring a Blue and Qold win in the offlolal opening of the Collegiate
stadium last Saturday.
Mlnua a weighty, "on-the-ball" sorum, and ahowlng only flaahea
of old-time form, Captain Dobble'a English ruggers loot the Initial
battle of the season to Hoy Cameron's rough and ready Rowers from
Coal Harbour, by a 12-3 oount.
Willoughby and Wilson, two of
last year's "Wonder Team," starred
for the Rowers, Willoughby getting
3 assists and Wilson two tries. The
other two red and white scores were
by Tailing and Moran, with assists
by McLeod and Atkinson. Varsity's
lone score was made by Madeley
following a good run by Trussell.
Other standouts for Varsity were
Strat Leggatt and J. Bird, with
Carey receiving, tackling and kicking at opportune moments.
Play opened with nice runs by
Walloughby and Goepel for Row-
era  and  Trussell  and  Tremblay
for   Varsity.   After   considerable
zig-zag play, Atkinson Intercepted a Varsity pass at centre field
for a 20-yard run, and Willoughby   broke  away   after   a  Varaity
kick,    passed    to    McLeod,    who
openel up the way for L. Wilson
to score at the flag.  Ten minutes
later Atkinson broke away from
the  Varsity   10-yard   line  to  let
Tailing boost the score to 6-0 for
the Rowers. Both converts by Atkinson  were disallowed.
Just before the half-time whistle,
Goepel    cleared    nicely    from    the
scrum    to    Willoughby,    who    was
stopped at the Varsity 2-yard line.
Leggatt had the crowd on its feet
with a brilliant run to centre field
as the whistle went.'
After 5 minutes of second-half
play, Atkinson, of the Rowers, was
taken out, but the game went on
seemingly as one-sided as before.
Just after his return the Rowers'
threes broke away nicely to let Wilson boost the score to 9-0. They try
was not converted.
A  little later,  .Carey  saved  a
further acore by  a neat pick-up
and   kick,   and  Johnny   Bird  attempted   to  make  a   safety,   but
lost the ball as he sailed through
the air.
Stacey's   fumble   at   centre   field
gave  Trussell  a  chance  for  a  26-
yard run and Madeley followed up
with a try from close in to mark
up   Varsity's  flrst   and   only   score
and leave Rowers up 9-3.
In the final ten minutes the
Varsity threes made some nice runs,
paralleled by Willoughby's inspired
play for the Rowers. Carey was
observed to take It on the chin at
least twice .with Lyle Wilson running him a close second. Insult was
added to injury when Willoughby
adanced to the U. ten-yard line,
where Atkinson and Moran engineered a sneak play just before the
whistle, making the final score:
Varsity, 3; Rowers, 12.

The first game of the junior football team will take place Saturday,
October 9, although Varsity's opponent has not been decided as yet.
All this week the junior gridmen
will practice with the seniors, and
those who do not travel to Saskatchewan will form the junior
team for Saturday's game.
The main difficulty so far is a

all those interested, the practices
are at five o'clock every afternoon

really enthusiastic over the round-

Charley, and he's broadly hinting

Pringle pushing them out from between the uprights. . . . Saw Jack

The "red menace" of flotlon materialized with a vengeance on

Columbus footballers walked over the home boya to the tune of 7-4
at the opening of Alma Matar'a brand now atadlum.

Dan Quayle Elected
Captain Yesterday
From the smoke-nlled committee
rooms of the Vancouver and District Soccer Commission comes the
news that Varsity Seniors are slated to tear Into Service Taxi in the
second hai? of a double-header at
Cambie Street on Saturday, while
the Juniors will oppose Provincial
Recreations  at McBride Park.
At an enthualaatlo meeting
held by the ahln-kloklng experts
on Monday, husky Dan Quayle,
laat year's aklpper, waa unanimously re-elected to lead the Blue
and Qold lads again thia year.
Steps are being taken by the soccerites to secure a tew games this
year at the Stadium to stimulate
interest in tlie roiindball sport. The
soccermen teei that it should be
their privilege also to cavort on the
new  Stadium grounds.
A big practice has been called
for today noon to enable Coach
Hitchins to take a final look over
his material before selecting his
teams for the opening games, Saturday.
The following players have been
mentioned    for    bertha    on    this
year's Senior team:   For forward
positions   Coach   Hitchins   has  to
choose from Chapman, Basil  Robinson, Todd, Sager, Howatson and
Foster; for halfbacks, Jaok Rush,
Jim       Robinson,      Captain       Dan
Quayle  and   Klrkpatrlck;   and for
fullbacks:   Allan Croll  and  Mlzu-
hara appear to be cinches.    Goal
la atlll a headache to Charlie but
"more  later," says Varsity's genial coach.
The  first game Saturday Is going
to   be  a  tough  one   for  the   Seniors
as    many    people    as    possible    are
urged to be on hand to support the
revamped Blue and Oold XI in their
fight for local suremacy.
The strong Varsity line dominated the flrst stanza by ripping the
Crusaders' front wall to shreds, and
opening up holes for the Blue and
Gold backflelders. But the accurate
booting of both teams was the deciding factor, with Johnny Pearson
of the U. team besting the Knights'
Steele ln straight distance. However, Steele came through when the
chips were down.
A Varsity fumble near the end of
the second canto put the Knights
ln position to tie things up in the
second, and the game continued on
even terms to half time, gain matching gain, fumble tor fumble, the
crowd on edge with excitement.
Williams got away for a long
gain just after the third period
started and put the ball where Pearson's educated toe could boot lt to
the dead-line, to give the Students
I. a one-point advantage. Then two
sleeper plays by the Columbus club
failed to do what a Varsity fumble
did a moment later, and it was flrst
and ten on the Varsity 12-yard line.
But the iron wall of blue and
gold stopped the drive on the one-
yard stripe, and gave Pearson a
chance to klok well out of danger
to the 48. Prom there, a pass from
a field goal formation brought the
fighting K. of C. squad back to
scoring position. This time they
made no mistakes In booting the
egg between the uprights to take
a lead that waa never again seriously threatened by the desperate
collegians. A rouge by the
Knights ended the game.
In spite of the fact that they
came out on the wrong side of the
score sheet. Van Vliet's men look
very strong indeed, and with a little
more polish they should start making up for lost time on the other
teams In the league.

League this season:  Senior A, Senior and Intermediate A. Every practice sees over 30 aspiring  players
out.     "They are all good players,"
enthusiastically   said    Peggy    Fox,
club prexy! "None are dainty young
ladles out for a bit of gentle exercise."
Five   of   the   newoomers   who

who will win the coveted spots on

stars  are  doubtful ot  their ability
to gain the positions they formerly
held.     "Doc"   will   probably   make
up his mind this Thursday.
