Compulsory Military Training
McGiil Senate Suspends
Conscientious  Objector
Montreal, P.Q. (C.U.P.)—November 15, 1940 — After a
special meeting of the University Senate on Saturday, McGiil
University suspended its sole conscientious objector to compulsory military training, Gordon Stewart, second year Arts
student, until he is ready to abide by the rules of the college.
Stewart refused to take the compulsory military training on the
grounds that'it was against his religious principles.
CASE CONSIDERED
The case was considered by a special committee composed of university and military representatives and
referred to t th-e Senate for final
action. Since Stewart Is 19 years of
age his case Is a purely university
affair and was not referred to the
Government as would have been tho
case  were  he  of   military   age.
The action of the Senate is based
upon a regulation of long standing
which empowers the coll-ege authorities to suspend any student who
refuses to participate ln the physical
training program of the university.
University authorities have tak-en
the stand that Stewart's refusal to
take the compulsory military training
is akin to refusal' to take physical
training.
Stewart is a prominent member of
the Debating Union and ls president
of the Arts Undergraduate Debating
Society. He Is also a reporter on the
staff  of the  McGiil  Dally.

HOUSING, ART,
HAWKIN'S DAY
KINGSTON, Ont., Nov. 4 (C.U.P.)
—Queen's University students aro
faced with a peculiar yet serious
problem as a result of the war. What
with development of the Empire Ait-
Training Scheme, R.M.C. and naval
school, thousands of men from His
Majesty's Forces are quartered in
Kingston.
In addition, workers and their families for the new aeroplane plant and
for the Locomotive works and shipyard, are coming to town in great
numbers. The trouble comes when
they  look   for   board  and   rooms.
Queens has no men's residences.
All the men and some of the girl3
live in boarding houses. The University has always issued a list of
boarding houses near the University,
with   rates   and   accomodation.
Rents havo gone up slightly, and
homes which never took in roomers
L-efore  are  now  taking one  or two.
GIRLS' RESIDENCE
The girls do not have to face the
same problem, for there is a residence
for them which holds the greater part
of the co-eds, and the Dean of Women arranges to reserve accomodation
for   tho  remainder.
As regards meals, students don't
have to worry. The Student's Union
Cafeteria has kept its prices the same
despite the rise in cost, and has kept
other boarding houses and restaurants   in   line.
Queens hopes to have a men's residence in tho near future and the
reasonable profits from the Cafeteria
are being placed in a fund to realize
this   dream.
Student Director
John Glen, versatile member of the
Playern' Club, who ls directing the
play "In Cold Blood" for the Christmas productions, starting on November 20. He has played leading roles

club.

Art   Building
LONDON, Ont., Nov 14 (C.U.P.) —
The University of Western Ontario
is about to obtain an art gallery, Mrs.
J. G. Mcintosh 1-eft the university
$50,000 for the construction of an art
gallery and auditorium, as well as
a collection of paintings by Gainsborough and other painters. Construction of the building will begin
in  less than  a  month.
The building will be 30 feet by
100 feet, and will be built in Gothic
style of Credit Valley sandstone. In
order to obtain the maximum display
space, the gallery will likely be limited to two stories in h-eight, with as
much wall space as possible. There
will be relatively few windows, most
of the illumination to be provided by
skylights.
University ofifcials hope that the
collection left to the university will
be a nucleus for an outstanding collection   of -art   treasures.

First nighters are getting set
for the return of the drama to
the campus next week when
the annual one-act Christmas
plays will be presented by the
Players' Club in the Auditorium, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, November 20th to 23rd.
As usual, four short .sketches of
widely cliff-, rent characters will bo
presented to a student audience on
Wednesday and Thursday nights and
to the general public on the succeeding   two -evenings.
Two student directors will muke
their debuts this year In the persons    of    Archie   Bain    and    John
Glen,  both  veterans in  ilrama.
PLAY  DIRECTORS
Under the supervision of Mr. Sydney Risk, Archie Bain is directing
the production of "The Nativity Play
of the Shearmen and Tailors" that
dates from th-e fourteenth century,
and will mark a new field of endeavour   for  the   Players'   Club.
John Glen is also working under
the supervision of Mr. Sydney Rlsk
In producing a modern scene centering around a novelist of the present
day. It is called "In Cold Blood"
ond it-i suspense is expected to
catch the  fancy  of  tho  student body.
The other two plays to bo presented are "Edward About to Marry"
under tho direction of Walter H.
Gage, ana "Far. Far Away" with Dr.
Dorothy   Mawdsley   as   director.
Most of the casts in those plays
are from tho lower years and their
p-erformance will largely determine
tho cast to be chosen for the spring
play.
A Corsage Hex
On Female Sex
At Arts-Aggie
"You can't come in here"
will be the word given to coeds who come to the Arts-
Aggie Ball hidden behind a
corsage, for no corsages of any
kind are to be worn this year.
The ldua of selling small corsages
at the door and giving proceeds to
the Red Cross has been scrapped by
the Executive. Sandy Nash, President
A.M.U.S., told the Ubyssey. Instead,
blue and gold ribbons will be sold
at the door for 50c each, and no
couple will bo allowed in without
buying   one.
Girls will positively not be allowed Into the dance If they are
wearing a corsage. If they have
ono already they will have to give
lt up at the door.
As with the former idea, the profit
from the sale of the ribbons will
help to swell the University's Red
Croas fund.
SWEATERS
APPEAR SOON
ON CAMPUS
Students will sit at tables wreathed
in fragrant incense manocuvering
chopsticks. A troupe of oriental
dancing girls will oppoar as on. of
the most striking features of the
evening. To enhance still further
this Eastern setting, a slave gong
will resound at the end of each
dance.
EXOTIC ATMOSPHERE
Even the Artsmen and Aggies attending will help to further tho
exotic atmosphere by wearing splendid sashes—brilliant blue ones for
th_ Artsmen, gold for the Aggies.
These sashes may be procured at the
A.M.S. Office next week at ten cents
each.
Very appropriately, the two Illustrious persons who have kindly offered to lend their patronage for tho
evening are Confucius and Chang
Suey. These two will assume the
task of initiating students into the
ways of  oriental  night life.
A gigantic Arts-Aggie pep meet
will take placo on November 20, tho
clay preceding the Arts-Aggie Ball.
Tickets for the latter will be on sale
next week at both the A.M.S. Otric-e
-ind the Quad box office. The price
is $3.00 a couple.
CONFUCIUS  SAY
Most students feel the same way
about the Arts-Aggie Ball as does
Confucius,    when   Confucius   say:
"Lovely lady and gv.nt.eman at Ball
is  velly   nice
No matter what the H— the price."
ALPINE COSTUME
FOR PH ATE RES
SKI PARTY
Swiss and outdoor skiing clothes
will be a feature of the Phrat-eres
Alpine party to be held on. Monday,
November 18. Four of the subchapters, Beta, Gamma, Delta and
Zeta are sponsoring this nowl co-ed
to bo held  in the Peter Pan Ballroom.
Dancing will be from nine to one,
and skiing or .swiss clothes are to bs-
worn. Tickets for the affair are 23-.-
a couple for mvmbers of these chapters and 3."ic a couple for other
chapters.
Any day now the notorious
Arts Sweaters will become a
reality on the Campus. They
are expected to be ready for release at the end of this week.
It is stated that the Sciencemen will
turn absolutely green at th-e sight of
these blue and gold tokens of the Arts-
men's spirit, which despite rumour
to the contrary, is not quite dead
yet, according to releases by Canadian  Press.
INCREASING   DEMAND
The demand has been increasing
steadily. Both Joes and Josephines
are ordering them; the main reason
given is to show the Sciencemen just
where  they   stand   and  sit.
These sweaters may be ordered
through the Alma Mater Society
efflce. The price is still the same
reasonable   one   .  .   .  $4.35.

Washington Vs.
U.B.C. Debaters
In Symposisum
"Entering the war will mean
disaster to the U.S.A.," said
Warren Kilpatrick and Dan
Blom of the University of
Washington in Wednesday's
symposium in Arts 100. Elspeth Munro and Austin Delany
of the Parliamentary Forum
represented U.B.C.
Kilpatrlck discussed the external
menace of ripening dictatorships in
South America where totalitarian Argentine Is already dynamically opposed to the U.S.A. He stated that
th-e most serious Internal threat is
the lack of national morale In the
States.
Elspeth Munro branded the recent
exchange of 50 wornout American
destroyers for strategic British military bases as unfair, for the U.S.A.
made an economic gain without participating in the war. She ended by
saying, "America should be In the
war  and  should   be   in  immediately."
Angus Speaks

The findings of the Rowell-Sirols
Commission on the problems of

and   refeshments.
Dean's Letters
Shock Slow
Students
This week many students are regretting the fact that they didn't
work harder for the mid-term exams.
The question of th-e day is this—"Did
you  get   a   letter  from the   Dean?
The Dean's billet doux has a lot
of reading to it, but boiled down it
sounds   like   this—"Either     do    some
work   or   get   the       out   of  this
hyar   University."
When he was asked how he happened to get one of the dainty epistles, the Sciencemen, Oscillation Q.
Erg was heard to remark "I woke
up one morning and dere it was."
With much prqfanity and superhuman manipulation of a C.I.F. slide-
rule scale, he reached the conclusion
that the only cure was more El
Stuffo. As far as can be ascertained
he is still hibernating in Chem locker
No.  423.
A comprehensive survey of Arts
women showed that the majority of
them were only too, too, thrilled at
the prospect of a confidential chat
with the Dean. Your reporter spent
a good deal of time convincing the
said women that the Dean doesn't
take them on his knee and let them
cry  on  his  shoulder.
After   a   long   search,    one    Aggie
was     discovered     hiding     behind     a
broken  blackboard  clutching  his  billet    doux.      When   he   was   asked   if
, there   were   any   more   like   him   he
Dan  Blom  responded  that  the  U.S. . on-y   gave   out   a   genti.-.   MOOooo.

out when she is unified. He maintained that Hitler's victory would not
be an economic threat to America
because her foreign trade n-ever exceeded 10 per cent, but that there
was a serious economic problem of
feeding the starving people in tho
nation.
"Conditions," he said, "such as unemployment, national disunity, the
formation of fifth columnist groups
and Communist societies, which give
rise to totalitarianism, are potent in
the   States  today."
In replying to the American speakers. Austin Delany argued that soon
America will be in the war for better or for worse. He declared that
in all terms and facts the U.S.A. is
an ally of Britain now, and asserted
that democracy must take second
place If tho States continues on Its
present   basis.
CHANGE   OF   ADDRESS
Tho Dominion Bureau of Satisfies
has written to the registrar, advising
that students do not need to notify
thin bureau unless they change their
permanent home residence during, oi
a' tho otid of, the school year. In case
such a change, students must notify
tho   Dominion   Statistician   at   once.
Breaking down after a Ubyssey 3rd
degree he confessed that the only reason he had failed was because a certain cow kept kicking over the test-
lube he was trying to fill with milk.
Consequently he couldn't write a
constructive essay on "the percentage
of butterfat, lactic acid, and chocolate   flavor   In   pure  Jersey   milk."
New   Editors
For   Tuesday's
A.M.U.S. Issue
Next Tuesday's edition will see a
radical departure from the traditional
policy of the Ubyssey, for it's the
Arts-Aggie   issue.
This will give all the Artsmen
and Aggies, who have been telling
tho Editors how to write the Ubyssey, a chance to prove their
worth.
Columns, news stories and features

TOTEM EST^
THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, November 15th, 1940
Totem time is here again, and time for
a dollar down. All who want a beautiful and
lasting record of their college year should make
sure at once that they will have a, Totem next
spring by reserving one now. It is impossible
to get one by any1 other means.
The Totem this year promises to be quite
different from last year's so that those who
do not want to buy a duplicate need have no
doubts about ordering one. There is every
reason to believe that it will be better than
last year's book which won the award for Canada. A great many interesting and novel pictures have been taken already, and more will
be taken of any events that come up during
the rest of the year.
The years spent at college are among the
most interesting and the most enjoyable of
anyone's life, but very few people have any
permanent record of those years, either in
pictures or in writing. Those who keep their
Ubysseys have a kind of record, but by no
means a pictorial one; those who come here
from out of town have the letters they write
home to read over, if the letters are not destroyed; but for the great majority of students,
the Totem is the only record.
Besides the photographs of all the students, the Totem pictures the big social events
of the year, some of the classic sports events,
club activities, and any outstanding happenings on the campus. This year, the War is
bound to play a part in any record of student
life because of its effect on every student. This
year, far more than last year, will be remembered as a war year. Who can say what next
year will be?
The Totem ts something then that few students can. really do without. Reserve a Totem
now, and you will yet a pleasant surprise when
the book comes out. Then someday, you can
show it to your grandchildren.
British MmsIc
By Dan Tatroff
Modern British music, in its expression of
the national spirit and in the great number of
its world-famous composers, excels all other
contemporary music. In no other land are
there so many composers who have freed
themselves from the traditions of form and
harmony laid down by German masters. With
the firm basis of folk music, our writers have
now created forms and harmonies that are both
modern and national.
In the opinion of many, however, Britain's
greatest musical genius lived 250 years ago.
It was fifteen years before Handel's arrival in
1710 that Purcell died prematurely. It is idle
to speculate what he would have done if he
had lived longer. In his single opera, "Dido
and Aeneas", he achieved perfection; though
an energetic writer for the stage, he never
wrote another true opera. He was too busy
with anthefhs, catches, chamber pieces, organ
voluntaries, and the other occasional music demanded by the needs of his numerous official
positions.
He had no apparent ancestors; more, no
heirs claimed his rich musical estate, though
Handel borrowed what he pleased* of it. Indeed, Handel's "Englishness" is exactly that
borrowing, and is betrayed in his mighty choral
effects, his widely spaced harmonies, and the
pungent utterances of his woodwinds and
brasses. The overwhelming choruses conceived
by the German invader, and sung at vast tribal festivals these past two hundred years, have
served to blot out Purcell's fame. Yet he was
a very great composer, far ahead of the resources of his age, speaking in a voice that
was at once unmistakably his own and that of
Restoration England. No one has less deserved
obscurity.

To   the   Ubyssey.
Dear  Sirs:
The time has come for a reckoning.
For many weeks thc Ubyssey has

illustrious Council bnskelb-ill team—
but at Inst It has gone too far! The
glory of the Anglican Coll-ege l-..-._
been challenged, and the challenge
shall not stand! Here I append the
true story of the three o'clock Fire
Alarm.
All was dark in the land of Ang.
The steam valves hissed and groaned,
and the heat was terrific. We of
A.T.C. are not seasoning ours-elves for
for any particularly hot place, but we
slept on. It was Chang Suey who
found it too hot. and snarling, beset eff the fire alarm—even after the
Pub office this was more than h':
could   stand.
In a iiiunieiit the College was in an
uproar! The three resident Sciencc-
nv. n   snored   on.
"Ccme, liosiiy," murmuivd Ole Alfalfa, the Anglican Aggie, while Ted
Scott, tlie dashing divine, made a
spectacular ti ip around tho corridor;
in 10:5'a seconds flat. Quickly tlie
■'rally" sounded from Doug Fcrd's
'■ilver-longu-d bugl-e. and the busy
little Theologs silenced the alarm
bells with eu.-.tumary efficiency, two
socks, i nd an antependiiim (commercial   plu«   for   tlie   Players'   Club).
And   still   tlio   Sciencemen   snored.
'Ihen came s lence. One particular
Artsman, too lull'.; for his bed, heaved
.' slightly—it was Custard's last stand,
S and he subsided like a jelly. Thoughtful Theologs phoned a warm protest
to the University steam plant regarding the unreasonable heat; and after
opening all thc windows, settled down
to work with their usual industry,
leaving mere Varsity men to wallow
in the slime of tardiness, following,
the example of the Cross-Country
race.
That, sirs of the Pub, Is the true
(or as Keats says), tho bashful story
of the other night. Let it be a lesson   to   you.
Yours  severely,
NIHIL THEOLOGIBUS,
Nilnisl  bonum.
Why did Handel go to England? Probably just because of restlessness and curiosity
—a desire for new worlds to conquer. England was wearing her gloomiest autumnal aspect when he landed on her shores. Everything was against him. He did not know a
word of English. In Queen Anne's England,
music was in a state of coma brought about by
a chain-of lamentable circumstances and a lack
of national talent. The structure of English
music, founded so admirably by John Dunstable, developed magnificently by Orlando
Gibbons and William Byrd, and perfected by
Henry Purcell, had suddenly collapsed. ,      ...
I   admit  that  I   am  a   drunkard  but
But   the   distinctly   British   forms'  of   music   * think it is an outrage that the Uni-
were never entirely lost. English vocal music
can never wane while the English language
with its infinite capacity for a measured beauty
of expression remains. Thus, at this time we
have Thomas Arne (1710-1778) setting Shakespeare's lyrics to music. And if one suddenly
came upon "I heard a brooklet gushing," by
Edward Loder, one might imagine that he was
a British Schubert.
en to drink by editorials such as the
one on "drinking", an editorial that
would nauseate even the cleanest
'iving  p-.rson.
Let's have no more nonsensical
-editorials like the one I have mentioned, a* they are entirely unappreciated. Also said editorials lead to
lengthy discussion, which the Uby--
ssey has no space to print. Thus
I have ccme to the conclusion, along
with many others, that the whole
business was unfair on the grounds
I have just mentioned.
Yours   by   the   Grace   of   Allah,
Squire   Bcetbohm   Tree
(the   drunkard).
Dear   Sir:
Many co-eds are wondering what
to do to help the war effort. Now
a golden opportunity presents itself
for them to do their little bit, how-
aver   ."mul!.
It is rumoured that uniforms and
army boots will be presented to the
U.li.C. shortly. These boots however
are    not    equipped    with    socks. It
would be a notable g-.sture on the
part of the co-eds if each one made
it a point to knit a pair of woolen
'ock.s fur each of tho boys, who are
rivir.^ their time and energy to th-e
country.
You don't want the boys to get
.-old   feet,   do   you?
Yours  hopefully,
A   BASIC   BOY.

Dear Editor:
I was quite amazed and distressed,
about the -editorial "drinking", that
appeared in last week's Ubyssey.
This epistle was entirely unnecessary as the public, in general, will
form th-e opinion that the students
of our noble institution arc a crowd
of  drunkards.
MIXER
The second Mixer wiM be held Saturday
night. The first one was such a huge success
that there is bound to be an even larger crowd
at this one. For once at a University social
event, everyone was well mixed up and there
were no small groups and separate parties.
All expenses -were paid, and there was a small
profit. The orchestra was good, the program
varied, the atmosphere informal and friendly,
and everyone enjoyed himself.
Mixers are exactly what this University
needs to develop college spirit and a more
friendly atmosphere.
The absence of dormitories is the chief
reason for this lack of college spirit, and the
various social functions and games throughout the year do not do a great deal to make
up this lack. But at an informal party where
money, clothes, and sophistication mean nothing
at all and everyone enjoys himself, there is a
real opportunity to develop this queer evasive
substance known as college spirit.
The Varsity Dance Orchestra is proving
itself well worthy of its name, too. It is improving with every dance, and many students
say that they would rather dance to its music
th-.n to any other. So at the Mixer, everybody
dances with everybody to ihe music of out-
own orchestra in our own hall. What more
i.-ould  we want?
Another composer of this transitional
period was William Boyce, who was writing
stately church music. Neither Boyce nor
Arne, however, were strong enough to overcome the memory of Handel, who was held in
-.;teat reverence long after his death. There
was a general feeling that there never could
bo another composer to stand beside him; one
hall! of the public headed by George III. were
admiring everything whieh at all reflected
Handel's style; the other half were simply
waiting for any new sensation from the continent.
An anecdote will help to show the condition in which musical London was at this time.
Dr. Johnson had been taken against his will
to a concert of string music. His companion
tried to excuse the musicians' mediocre performance on the ground that the music was
difficult. "Difficult?" growled Johnson. "Would
lo God it had been impossible !"
(To be continued)

WAR PRODUCTION:
The BBC recently started a series of programs designed to bring music to the factories,
with the object of increasing war production.
It Is not merely that music diverts the factory
worker's thought from a wearisome routine.
The routine acquires a pattern and hence a
significance that leaves the pattern no longer
a meaningless repetition.
Naturally, some workers will not profit
by this experiment for even the thunders of a
Mahler symphony would be lost in the earth-
shaking chorus of an irpn foundry.
vcrsity as a whole, should be judged
on the actions of several scoundrels
like  myself.
My only explanation of this stupid
articlv is: that the editor is a teetotaler who has re-formed, or he is
the type of chap who takes a drink,
then another one, but is scared to
take a third because he might be
discovered by some member of tho
drinking clan which he himaelf is
pel's: cut ng. 1 am inclined to thin..

Alaska sable, otherwise skunk, is one ot the most popular furs

introduced herself to some unknowns and walked out with them . . .
Black is the most popular color for dress wear now, and the
Alaska Sable carries out this theme . . . it's really flattering for you,
no matter what your type, because they come in all lengths.

WEDNESDAY IS SELF-DENIAL DAY

LET'S PUT CHANG SUEY IN THE CAN
SYNOPSIS; In the Bookstore at
midnight Oscar Scrlbblewell, reporter on the Dirty Rag, saw the
stupendously wicked Chang Suey
and the Tin Goddess Dottle Listen
stuffing a corpse into the cash
register. The next morning the
grimy mess was gone, but Oscar,
Instead of minding his own business and drinking his chocolate
milk like a good boy, snooped
around the campus and eventually
stumbled into the clutches of the
oriental sourpuss. Chang S.
sneered an evil sneer and plunked
Oscar In his torture chamber.
Now read on: (or don't If you don't
want to, we don't care).
BINGO !
Their wits numbed by the clamour
i.f Chang Suey's fi-endish invention,
the Eternal Military Lecturer, tho
two oriental guards failed to see the
shadowy figure in the corner of the
torture   chamber.
But Oscar Seribbleweil, one eighth
conscious though he was. saw the
gleam of a red sweater as Chas.
(Smutty Smus) Barker, boss of the
engineers, whirl'.d a pair of slide
rules  through the  air.
With faint plops the weapons
smashed on the flimsy sculls of the
guards, dropping them like a pair of
ripe eggplants. Tlie chi-ef of the engineers shot from his shadowy cornet',
untied the cringing Seribbleweil who
was almost as much afraid of Science-
men tis he was of the 'evil C. Suey,
tucked tho terrified reporter under
one arm and the corpse from the
Bookstore floor und-er the other,
kicked open a secret panel and
trotted out to a passageway beyond
the  torture  chamber.
Through a winding tunnel Infested with swooping hordes of
waivers the red shirt waddled,
grasping the two precious bundles
firmly. The trembling Oscar
Seribbleweil had heard of Science-
men snatching babes from under
tables in the Georgia and cutting
them Into pieces to throw from
the balcony at Arts pep meets,
and he expected no mercy from the
head  of  the engineers  either  for
himself or for the corpse.
LEGAL DETAILS
Snatching a pencil and a looselcaf
containing Loafing 3 and Caf 9 not-es
from his pocket the reporter endeavoured to make a will as Barker
carried   him   along.
"To my clearly beloved Aspidcstra
Haycutter," he jotted, "I bequeath
my box of poker chips, the golcl filling from my left upper second molar,
and my Bl I lab book, for which I
got a third class in the spring of '29.
To my pal the Totem photographer
Billy tho Flash I leave the blonde
in the second row In English 19.
To—"
Chas. (Smutty Smus) Barker had
climbed a long flight of stairs, entered a well lit (like the occupants)
room, and dumped Oscar and the
corpse on the floor. Hastily swallow-
in-; a box of Dr. Base's Nerve Food
(advt.) which he carried with him
for weukness of the knees, tho reporter raised his h-ead and looked
about.
He was in a lab on the top floor
of Science. Beside him was the gruesome corpse from the Bookstore
floor, and for the first time Oscar
saw  the   face   of   the  gory  object.
"Holy    Klinck!"    he    shrieked,    "It
can't  be!     He's  been  gone  a  year!"
"Oh. but it Is," countered Chas.
Barker, who was deft at repartee,
"and     we     have     to     fix     hint
up   today.     There's   a   pep   meet
coming  off,  and  unless he's there
It'll flop like a Mamook-yell.   No,
I'm  not   going  to  hurt  you,"   the
king  of  the  sllpstlck  added,  seeing Oscar trembling like an orange
Jello, "this Is self-denial day. You
can scram now."
YEA  SCIENCE!
But,    grasping   his   courage   firmly
between the thumb and forefinger of
his left hand. Oscar waited, for he
didn't see how even a scienceman
could bring life to that gooey m-ess
cf blood and bone which the evil
Chang   Suey had   mangled.
Feverishly the engineer worked,
his grey cells popping audibly as he
concentrated on the problem before
him. He integrated, he disintegrated,
he condensed, he diluted, then finally he wiped -his hands on his long
gold-en beard and stood back from his
labour.
What had once been the corpse
rose to its feet, lighted its corn cob
plpa, and gurgled "HI, boys!" It was
the sciencemen's sweetheart ond the
artsmen's ally, that glamour boy of
the long tables, Professor Walter
Aitch Rage
With a cheery wave of Its hand
the ex-corpse strode from the room,
whistling "Alouette" through its Incisors.
"Gad!'' shrieked Scrlbblewell,
"doesn't the man realize he's just
been dead? And do you know what
really did happen to him, Chas.
Barker?"
"Y-ep," responded Smutty Smus
with a scientific leer, "but I can't
talk until you've greased my gullet
with  a   forty   beer   or two."
(Is the mystery going to bo solved at last? Can Oscar raise the
money to bribe Barker? Watch
for tho exciting conclusion the
week after the week after next.)

That the way Coach Maury
Van Vliet saw his Thunderbird

empty stands at the Exhibition

the defending league champions
/at full time, and then went on
j ahead to cop the contest in
overtime 51—44.
Behind all the way in what was
tho most ragged game of tho current
season, Varsity pulled up with sur-
I prising alacrity, to knot the score
43—43 as tho ftjll time whistle blew,
after trailing tho polished Leaf quintette 36—27 at three-quarter time.
BARTON,  RYAN  STAR
Barton was the hero of tile
Collegians amazing victory as the
lanky southpaw went wild, sifting
through the panting Leaflets for
five quick markers In the overtime session, to bring his evening's  total io 14.
Diminutive     Jo-Jo     Ryan     also
gathered a fair share of the laurels
as    he    checked    Jlmmle    "Bugs"
Bardsley     In    a    standstill,     while
picking up eight points himself.
Other   top  scorers  for  the   Vlietmen
were   Pat   Flynn   with   nine   and   Jim
Scott,   who   saw   no   action   in   overtime,   with  fourteen.
Jubilant over their victory, the
Collegians clustered about their
coach Maury Van Vllet, who had
bitten through four C.O.T.C. handbooks while watching his cagers
cavort crazlly In the dying moments of the gome, to receive his
benediction.
Maple Leafs were only shadows of
their former greatness, and proved
that tho experts were right In forecasting tlie champions' lack of condition. Lacking cohesions, with their
set-plays falling apart at tho seams,
they produced no single star In the
contest, although Willoughby and
Ross picked off a fair share of points.
